They're hiding something. That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

I have to agree. Simple as that

Remember that time, 5 minutes ago... when the conquistador's burned all that Mayan stuff?

It really is a nasty cycle.


IS is also destroying anything it can get its hands on.

So the liberal elite have castrated us to the point where we cannot even defend the priceless antiquities of our collective history. This is pure insanity.

They preserved Syrian calligraphic writings... "Syriac calligraphy presenting the genealogy of Jesus from the Gospel of Matthew, dating back to the 17th century, was also reportedly preserved in the monastery."



Well we cant have THAT going public to the western world now can we?. Makes you wonder who is really funding ISIS, and what their agenda is???

I agree. They need some sort of protection.

This is history they are destroying, regardless if some agree with what the historical artifacts say/represent or not.

Monasteries in every culture are known to preserve artifacts and writings. Museums and monasteries need to be protected from people who want to destroy them. Simple as that.

What bugs me is I couldn't find a western source about this when I searched a few days ago.

Must be an ATS thing.

My first thought was "What are "really" destroying that they don't want us to be aware of?"

Maybe we aren't too far off the mark.

Found an article in the UK news-site the Independent:

Interesting to note, when I found that link in Google News, it had a link under it for 38 other articles, I clicked it and it says "No articles related..."

Edit to add:
Its also on BBC and DW
