The article speaks of a decapitated statue riddled with bullets, in no expert but I think the statue was of this mans pupil.
Al-Mutanabbi
A poem (936)


Why do we both have longing O messenger?
I love, and your heat is as sick with love.

Every time whomever I send to her returns
Has he become envious, and betrays his message.

Her eyes have soiled my trust in him,
And the messengers heart overcomes his mind.

She complains of what I have
lamented-pain of longing, but the real longing shows in my poor state.

When love touches the heart of the lover
The proof of love is what eye can see.
Provide for us from the beauty of your face
While it persists, for the beauty of faces wanes.

Apparently statues fare no better, but it can be re-sculptured again.

The armed vandals were using the statue for target practice. Their real target of course will be Bashar Assad.

The armed vandals is al-Khatib's allies that makes him responsible for every ting they do, in the eyes of people who make their home in Syria.
They call themselves the Mujahideen
Surah Council, you invited them so they can fight your war, to save your idiotic ideas
What made you do it was it only your pride, had you ignored foolhardy impulsed they would have gone away the next day.
Forget what you were, become what you should have been and put your stupid ideas
to the test of REFERENDUM.

Because these filthy people cannot do better than cutting heads..When no human is available they cut statue heads for the love of either killing or destroying Syria's culture heritage..
And the West is supporting them under the excuse of freedom fighters...if they like them so much we are ready to send them there or to Hell
