Now, If It Were A Crucifix In Urine...

Islamists Angered by Germans

This is an old story from Camille Paglia's website; events happened back in 2003. Apparently someone had the gall to use the Bust of Nefrititi in a less than honorable way. The Egyptian government decried this as a lack of respect for their Islamic heritage.

Ironically, Nefrititi was the wife of Akhenaten. Akhenaten (Amenotep IV) has been posited by many as the first Monotheist. There are those who are of the belief that he was actually Moses. So, perhaps these witty Berliners are disrespecting all 3 religious heritages!
