Erdogan versus statues

From Ali, the Turkey chief correspondent for Angry Arab:  "In his visit to Senegal, Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the statue symbolizing the slave trade in Goree Island "should in fact be sent back to France"...

Turkish people get used to his holy war against the statues. Two years ago the Monument to Humanity symbolizing the sisterhood between peoples of Armenia and Turkey was razed after he described it as "freak". “They have placed an abomination next to the Mausoleum of Hasan Harakani (an islamist scholar) They erected a freak,” said Erdogan for the monument in Kars province, close to the Armenian border. source:

PS: I attached the photo of the statue in Senegal.
