I wanted to call attention to this article that my partner and I came across this morning. The idea of this makes me SICK. This cannot happen. How could this even be proposed? I'm not sure of the validity of this source but I wanted to post it here for some healthy debate on this. What do you think??
Calls my Islamists to Destroy Egyptian Pyramids begin





Accordingly, while many Egyptians—Muslims and non-Muslims alike—see themselves as Egyptians, Islamists have no national identity, identifying only with Islam’s “culture,” based on the “sunna” of the prophet and Islam’s language, Arabic. This sentiment was clearly reflected when the former Leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Muhammad Akef, declared “the hell with Egypt,” indicating that the interests of his country are secondary to Islam’s. It is further telling that such calls are being made now—immediately after a Muslim Brotherhood member became Egypt’s president. In fact, the same reports discussing the call to demolish the last of the Seven Wonders of the Word, also note that Egyptian Salafis are calling on Morsi to banish all Shias and Baha’is from Egypt.



Discuss!

If this information is based in fact. Then I see this movement as the beginning of a revolution, the likes of which Egypt has not seen before. Threatening to rip the roots of a collective soul, can be very dangerous. Egyptians are very protective of their Pyramids.

Well I hope this report is not going to happen, I really do fear a massive backlash on every Muslim world-wide if it does happen, because if they are either good or bad Muslims they will not be allowed to survive, they will never be able to go out from the home they live in, yet that is quite sad as I for one know that there are lots of very nice Muslim people, I know some here, they are kind, gentle, and loving, it would be wrong for a few silly one's to make things hard for lots of good people.

Stones are stones. Let them destroy it for all I care. I am pretty sure some Masons will be pissed :p

I agree though, the Pyramids hold a very important place in everyones heart. I see no point wasting money in destorying them. Any reasons why they would do that?

And isn’t the Muslim Brotherhood just another name for the Illuminati in the Middle East?

Send somebody out there with some massive guns.
If anyone sets foot near the pyramids without proper permission granted, send them to their 72 virgins early.
They've destroyed enough (''peaceful'' religion?????????????)

This actually makes me really angry, and I would be genuinely cut up if anything happened to them.

It's about time we grew out of this ''my magical sky-wizard is better than your magical sky-wizard'' BS.
Society DISCOURAGES children for having imaginary friends... it's about time the adults took a leaf out of their own book, and stopped blowing each other, and everything else up over NOTHING..

Well the Taliban did that to the Buddha statues in Afghanistan so it doesn't surprise me since Islamists hated things that are unclean

The reality is, you've got a better chance finding a porno starring Mother Theresa and Al Sharpton than you do seeing the Pyramids destroyed . . . just a bunch of radicals shooting off their pie holes trying to get a rise out of everyone in a 'notice me' kinda way.

Let them shout and dance circles around an empty goat's skull until they get all tired of nobody listening and they dizzy themselves out in true hyperventilationist fashion.

This doesn't surprise me at all.


The extremists blew up the Buddhist statues and can't stomach other religions .. even those that are no longer active and that are just historical shells in nature.

Thing is .. these idiots are causing problems for the Egyptian people by wanting to do this.

1 - If they blow up the tourist places, there will be no tourists and Egypt gets a whole lotta money from tourism.

2 - If they blow up these historic sites, then there will be a loss of $$ from the world of academia as well.

If they destroy the pyramids ... they are freakn' idiots. Plain and simple.

Only goes to prove my point. Taliban doesn’t follow the teaching of Islam. It says in the Quran that you must respect the Bible and those who follow the Bible’s teaching. Same goes with the Torah. Hell, I live in Kuwait and we have a two churchs here. Pretty nice for a small country

Nope here is an excerpt




The statues were destroyed by dynamite over several weeks, starting on March 2, 2001,[29] carried out in different stages. Initially, the statues were fired at for several days using anti-aircraft guns and artillery. This caused severe damage, but did not obliterate them. During the destruction, Taliban Information Minister Qudratullah Jamal lamented that, "this work of destruction is not as simple as people might think. You can't knock down the statues by shelling as both are carved into a cliff; they are firmly attached to the mountain."[30] Later, the Taliban placed anti-tank mines at the bottom of the niches, so that when fragments of rock broke off from artillery fire, the statues would receive additional destruction from particles that set off the mines. In the end, the Taliban lowered men down the cliff face and placed explosives into holes in the Buddhas.[31] After one of the explosions failed to completely obliterate the face of one of the Buddhas, a rocket was launched which left a hole in the remains of the stone head.[32]

So let me repeat if they do it once they do it again

You know...in all the threads I've read on ATS. The ones where people claim the aliens are coming to intervene because of *------------* (fill in the blank with your own reason the aliens would stick their nose in our crappy business).

This might be the one they would actually do it.......destroy the Pyramids....:

I can't believe the insanity of man.

If Muslims as a whole descrated the pyramids to the point of demolition, they would probably never survive the worldwide backlash that would result.

I'm with you on that one all the way.. there's a theory that alien helped build the pyramids, or they were built to worship the 'visitors' that the ancients considered gods...

I know there's little chance that it's true, but I for one would laugh my considerable ass off if anyone trying to blow up the Sphinx got a little taste of some seriously hardcore alien tech....


It's funny, but desperately sad at the same time.. hoping for alien intervention because man is too bloody stupid to quit all this nonsense..

There is a prophecy stated in Hermetica of what will come to fruition in Egypt (although I'm a skeptic when it comes to prophecies, it's still interesting nonetheless)...

Hermetica Prophecy

I'm mad at the blatant disregard for antiquities (Ancient Egyptian artifacts/archaeological sites) which are being looted and destroyed in Egypt, simply for money.

Sometimes I wonder if that would be a bad thing.
In fact, ban all of it.. evangelism, mass worship, all the religions.. tell people to keep it in their homes.. It might stop the few giving the rest a bad name by collectively shoving it everyones throats, flying planes into things, blowing people up, and generally behaving like jerks, while telling everyone how pure and so much better they are than the rest of us.
