Why would they want to destroy their own history? It has nothing to do with their current government, so I don't understand why they would do something like this.

Looters destroy mummies in Egyptian Museum: official
(visit the link for the full news article)
CAIRO (Reuters) - Looters broke into the Egyptian Museum during anti-government protests late Friday and destroyed two Pharaonic mummies, Egypt's top archaeologist told state television.
The museum in central Cairo, which has the world's biggest collection of Pharaonic antiquities, is adjacent to the headquarters of the ruling National Democratic Party that protesters had earlier set ablaze. Flames were seen still pouring out of the party headquarters early Saturday.

And THAT'S why the British and French took so many treasures from archaeological findings the past three centuries.
These Muslims are the same crew who burned the remainder of the Library at Alexandria.
If it's not retarded, if it's not from the Qur'an, Muslims have a documented history of destroying other valuable archaeological items.
Best thing to do is for Britain or someone go get the stuff.
Hell, these guys didn't even build the pyramids. Have been tearing them down for centuries though.
