We’ve been heard by Port Authority – Islam Sculpture to Be Removed From Ground Zero

A Sculpture Featuring the Flag of Saudi Arabia Will Be Removed From Ground Zero.


A sculpture that features the flag of Saudi Arabia will be removed from Ground Zero in New York following outcry from 9/11 victim’s groups, the BBC reports.

Fifteen of the 19 Sept. 11 hijackers were Saudi nationals, though the Gulf kingdom has repeatedly denied involvement in the 2001 tragedy that claimed nearly 3,000 lives.

The artwork, called Candy Nations, comprises a series of oversized sweets wrapped in flags of the G20 nations, including Argentina, France, South Korea and Saudi Arabia. French artist Laurence Jenkell said she created the work in 2011 “to celebrate mankind” and “pay tribute to People of the entire world.”

It has toured 25 countries around the world, and arrived at the former World Trade Center site last month. The exhibit intended to run until Feb. 28, according to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.

  1. Thanks Hat! It gets worse. Apparently they are going to place it at JFK??? WTF? They hate us for our freedoms! The mass murders started at the airports.

  2. “– Islam Sculpture to Be Removed From Ground Zero”

    …it’s a start…now, if we can just have ISLAM removed from Ground Zero, and everwhere ELSE as well, it will be a HUGE improvement…

  3. I hope the families of the Pentagon and Penn. victims raise a fuss about the sculpture being at an airport. Especially a NY airport.
