After Outrage, Sculpture Praising ‘No God But Allah’ FINALLY Removed from Ground Zero in New York


A so-called “art exhibit” featuring the flag of Saudi Arabia that has “There is no god but Allah, and Mohammed is the prophet” written in Arabic on it was placed at New York’s Ground Zero, enraging many Americans. Now the offensive “art” has been removed.

The Saudi flag-draped sculpture was erected on the site where 19 Saudis murders thousands of Americans during the world’s worst terror attack on 9/11/2001. The sculpture is part of a series entitled “candy nations,” and looks like a giant piece of candy wrapped in a green foil wrapper. On the wrapper is the pro-Allah Arabic wording from the Saudi flag.

Each of the oversized candy sculptures were crafted by French artist Laurence Jenkell. They represent more than 25 countries and feature flags from the G-20 nations.

Jenkell has mounted the “candy nations” display in several countries:

But as soon as Americans saw that the “Allah” sculpture was placed at Ground Zero, the sensible and proper outrage began.

A coalition of family members of 9/11 victims spoke out against the Allah sculpture.

“The sculpture’s presence at this site, depicting the KSA (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia) flag, is an outrageous affront to the 9/11 community and all other Americans who seek justice for the attacks on our nation on September 11, 2001,” the 9/11 group said last week.

Now, according to the Associated Press, officials at Ground Zero have decided to move the sculpture.

The Port Authority of New York and New Jersey confirmed the exhibit “Candy Nations” will be moved to the Kennedy Airport AirTrain system this week.

“We have been in contact with the 9/11 Memorial and various stakeholders, and in full collaboration with the artist will relocate the exhibit from its current location,” the Port Authority said in a statement. “We believe this solution respects the unique sensitivities of the site and preserves the artistic integrity of the exhibit.”

This is a good move. That sculpture should never have been placed at Ground Zero in the first place.
