This is what the far-Left stands for, the tearing down of Western institutions, ideals and values, and substituting it with their own warped view of how things should be. The man’s “art” would be blown up by the same degenerates that blew up the ancient Buddhist statues. What an absolute immoral buffoon. KGS

Germany: A monument to the Taliban
Junge Freiheit 9 September 2011
The Dutchman Wouter Mijland plans to build in Berlin on 11September a monument for fallen Taliban fighters. The past four years living in Dresden artist wants to set up a two-meter high sculpture in secret, in the public square. He sees this as a deliberate counterpoint to the new army memorial.
Mijland claims a “new culture with the German war memorial and exciting television ARD in which journalists can go to the army to hunt Taliban in Afghanistan.” This development, he called in an interview published on his website “frightening and wrong.”
The Islamic threat “is a product of Western propaganda”
“I want to provoke, perhaps, but not known to be” versichtert Mijland, who calls his monument a “cheap provocation.” He wanted instead to “that some people think differently about the 11 September 2001 and its consequences on the polarization and stigmatization of people of Muslim religion.”
