I had a read of his biography on wikipedia. Quite an impressive fellow IMO.
Shame if they win, it is a beautiful statue.
I wonder sometimes if iconoclasts are just strange creatures that hate beauty. Though this crowd are incredibly ignorant 'He went into Tunisia' (invaded Africa) - or maybe just enjoying the chance to erase white man's culture - any excuse will do.
This one interests me as it implies the cop was racist when in fact we do not know this and he could have been nothing more than a rogue cop.
