From the Angry Arab Weblog,

Abu Al-`Ala' Al-Ma`arri beheaded by Syrian rebels

"People still argue whether Al-Mutanabbi or Al-Ma`arri was the best poet of Arabic ever.  I am a fan of both but I am politically closer to Al-Ma`arri as he was a great advocate of reason and critic of clerics and religion in general.  Syrian rebels beheaded the statue of Ma`arri in Syria and accused him of infidelity.  Kid you not."
Al-Ma'arri is my favorite poet and philosopher, I still recite some of his poem. I mentioned that before (on Twitter) Syria's Fascistoislamists hate him and Ibn-sina (Avecenna).
