United States troops destroyed a lot more than this in Iraq, Vietnam, and many other places around the world as they went through.




And here come the apologists in full force. Justifying one atrocity by citing others.

I don't know, something about "an eye for an eye leaves the whole world blind", some sh!t like that.

Then, by that logic, since Egyptian churches are being burned as we speak, it would be OK to burn mosques ?

I do believe that's what's called a straw man argument.

Everybody always asks "Where are the moderate Muslims?" Try not to assign blame for the nutbar mutants when a normal regular follower of Islam speaks up. Lest we blame you for Westboro Baptist, eh?


Or lest you accuse me of being a bad day at work away from being a Mass murderer like your fellow Democrat Mass Murderers Adam Lanza, James Holmes who worked for Obamas election, the V-Tech guy who sent hate mail to Bush, registered democrat, Aaron Alexis, Navy yard shooter, democrat.

Oh wait.

You do.

They do this wherever radical Islam takes hold. Remember the Buddhas in Afghanistan? The Sufi tombs in Africa? They don't see it as preserving history and heritage. It's a form of idolatry so it must all be destroyed.


And anyone who thinks that if these guys are not willing to destroy thousands of year old artifacts because of their religious beliefs and leave non-muslims alone is sickly naive.

This is now officially a plague and if Muslims want to to try and save Islam from this perversion, they need to step up now and send EVERYTHING they have at these monsters to destroy it. If they leave these barbarians to their own devices, then they too are the problem!


Yep. The Arab countries over there don't seem too concerned that their historical culture is being systematically destroyed by these thugs. In fact, I think most over there are too afraid of ISIS for fear of retribution of any terror attacks and turn a blind eye i.e. Turkey. They're making the moderates look like wusses.

You should read every response of mine in this thread instead of coming to a conclusion from just one of them.

I sorry guys....some one has to say it.

If the American Military Machine (notice I didnt say American Poeple), did not invade Iraq, kill 100s of thousands of people, kill Sadam Insane, and create chaos, pretending to stop "Weapons of Mass Destruction" which didnt exist.....then these loonies wouldnt have arisen, as Sadam would have exterminated them, before they could cause trouble..
I remember a Middle East Expert saying 15 years ago, prior to any Western offensive, that the Middle East MUST HAVE these strong dictators and leaders, because ALL of the Middle east are tribal savages that cant get along together, dont respect democracy, and need to be ruled with an iron fist.

Until another Sadam or Gadafi comes along....sponsored by the USA of course, there will be chaos in these countries.
Yes, a new Sadam will have mass killings of these mentals.....because Allah said so of course.....His Allah, not their Allah!!!!



Have to agree with this. Granted Saddam and Ghadafi were tyrants BUT there was order because these people were too afraid to pull this crap under those regimes. Iraq and Libya turned into sh!tholes after we stuck our nose in their business and removed those guys. The USA had a hand in helping to create this mess. Although ruling by fear is bad, those people can only be controlled by instilling fear. That's why they respond by their own brand of terror.

The atrocious acts of these barbarian ISIS/IL/IS terrorists must be stopped somehow.

They have been killing people, now, they're killing history.

Their OWN history.

Besides the fact that what these bums in dirty night shirts are doing is hidious and unforgivable, the effects of these images on the herds is also something to consider. ~$heopleNation

They have seriously twisted that teaching to fit their narrative.


Actually, I think this is an example of moderates twisting the teaching...I think what they're doing is actually in line with what is taught...the monotheistic scriptures do regularly speak of such things...it just adds to the illegitimacy of strict religion, though...there are many cases where actually literally following what scripture says would be bad, thus the masses ignore it...which is usually great, but it does kind of undermine the religion...the world would be a scary place if people were truly intent on following their religious scripture to a T.
I think the video from the OP is sad. However, we can't assume everything we don't like is a twisting of religious teaching...sometimes it's just, a religious teaching, that is usually ignored.

You may think what you please...

My source is the Holy Quran and there is no justification for what has transpired in the OP...
None whatsoever.

Any argument to the antithetical is highly convoluted & revisionist assumption!



As explained in my following posts to the one you quoted.

There should be some plan in place to get these artifacts out of museums in the region until this settles down.
Would be a crying shame if we lose any more.

Wouldn't it be great if some of these artifacts are cursed and these scum are devoured alive by scarab beetles and their offspring are also cursed for eternity?


UMMM actually



The lamassu is a celestial being from Mesopotamian mythology bearing a human head, bull's body, sometimes with the horns and the ears of a bull, and wings. It appears frequently in Mesopotamian art. The lamassu and shedu were household protective spirits of the common Babylonian people, becoming associated later as royal protectors, were placed as sentinels at the entrances.[citation needed] The Akkadians associated the god Papsukkal with lamassu and the god Išum with shedu. To protect houses, the lamassu were engraved in clay tablets, which were then buried under the door's threshold. They were often placed as a pair at the entrance of palaces. At the entrance of cities, they were sculpted in colossal size, and placed as a pair, one at each side of the door of the city, that generally had doors in the surrounding wall, each one looking towards one of the cardinal points. The ancient Jewish people were influenced by the iconography of Assyrian culture. The prophet Ezekial wrote about a fantastic being made up of aspects of a human being, a lion, an eagle and a bull. Later, in the early Christian period, the four Gospels were ascribed to each of these components. When it was depicted in art, this image was called the Tetramorph.

I almost went to Egypt end of last year/start of this year but for various reasons it fell through.
I almost feel I need to go ASAP because of what's going on around the region... and I'm not even remotely paranoid or OTT about things like this, but times are crazy.

I just really hope that nothing more gets destroyed.

From The texts/Manuscripts and artifacts in Timbuktu, Mali to the Buddhas of Bamiyan... to hundreds and hundreds of buildings/sites in Mecca and Medina, Islamic religious sites.
They just don't get how stupid they are - literally destroying their own and others' history.

They are saying that their way is the truth and they have a divine right to destroy these things, that to me kinda sounds like the very idolatry that they hate so much.

Oh well...

I'm not trying to be smart, but why do people keep saying radical Islam. There's no such thing. The whole.thing is radical. Either submit or be destroyed. Those who say they are the "peaceful ones" are liars and maybe considered apostate. Look up "sacred deception" of Islam. They are allowed to lie to infidels in order to further Islam. It's all a big lie and show to further their cause. However, the rich ones, like Saudi Arabia and the Emirates, live in luxury and fund the poor ones attacks on the world. You want to stop Islam, give these people jobs. Economic stability will give them something to do and a reason for life except causing death. They will relax their morals.

They moved a lot of stuff out of this museum to a safer location during the Gulf War, but what was left was too heavy to move. So not everything was lost.
