"This Will Make Us Hate The West More France Must Remove This Shameful Statue"(Egypt)


More Offensive Than Open air Gang Bangs In Tahrir Square
Egyptian archeologists have condemned the Paris statue of Jean François Champollion, the French archaeologist who deciphered hieroglyphics, as “derogatory” and “shameful.” 
The reason is that Champollion appears on the statue standing with his left foot on a Pharaonic head.
The statue was carved in 1875 by Frédéric-Auguste Bartholdi and is located in the main courtyard of the Collège de France.

Al Ahram Online reported on Tuesday that Egyptian archaeologists have condemned the statue as “derogatory toward Egyptian Civilization,” in a letter sent to the Egyptian foreign and antiquities ministries. The archaeologists also urged the French government to remove the “shameful statue.”
Al-Masry Al-Youm had reported in January that al-Hadary warned of increased hatred to the West if the statue is not removed. 
“This will make us hate the West more,” he said. “The French learned a hard lesson during their campaign that Egypt gained independence with the blood and lives of its sons.”

“The French government must remove this shameful statue or we will make thousands of insulting statues to put in all squares of Egypt and outside the French Embassy,” Hadary added, according to the Al-Masry Al-Youm.

Instead of getting offended by a more than 200 yrs old statue in France,how about you start worrying about all the archaeological sites that Muslims are destroying in Egypt?  Is there no end to Muslim hypocrisy?  No!  Wait!  Don't answer that!  I already know the answer.
