A 1911 photograph by Sergei Prokudin-Gorskii.
I'm afraid Moslem monarchs have a disturbing tendency to look like sacks of shit.

I don't think Gorskii's photo remark, "I'm afraid Moslem monarchs have a disturbing tendency to look like sacks of shit.", are relevent to the last decendent of the Great Khan or any "Moslem" monarch.

Lineage is important and relevant no matter what your personal opinion might be - history is important!

But to defame a decendant of Ghengis Khahn is beyond Christian forgiveness.Gorskii's photo remark is offensive;

"I'm afraid Moslem monarchs have a disturbing tendency to look like sacks of shit".

What is your fear?

Muslem monarchs are not different than any other Monarchs.

Photographs of them are no different then photos of QEII!

I am not biased, I am Catholic, raised Baptist. I am only involved in this debate because I respect history!
