These groups all had a hand in the destruction of the library of Alexandria. From wiki

Ancient and modern sources identify four possible occasions for the partial or complete destruction of the Library of Alexandria: Julius Caesar's fire in the Alexandrian War, in 48 BC; the attack of Aurelian in 270 – 275 AD; the decree of Coptic Pope Theophilus in AD 391; and the Muslim conquest in 642 AD or thereafter.-

I wonder what kind of munitions these extremeist believe will cause its destruction?? I have had the opportunity to visit the pyramids, and until you are there and witness just how massive they are, no way in hell they could destroy the pyramids

More propaganda that many seem to fall for hook, line and sinker.

Destroy the Egyptian museum as well while they are at it. I mean if they didn't like their past history might as well do the whole thing.

Sometimes I think Islam as well as other religions are like that one episode of Star trek when the primitive people thought Captain Picard was a god.Christians have some what got out of the primitive stage but Islam has never let it and I doubt it ever will.

You mistake my position. I am a non-interventionist overall (anti-war). Just saying with some things, it goes beyond my personal idealism. World wonders are definitely one of those things. This isn't some tyrant killing his own people for lulz, this is someone deciding to destroy a cultural and societal evolution wonder. At that point, my views are moot...like someone wanting to blow up the moon..it effects everyone and even future generations.

If we as a generation are so monkey retarded that we would blow up the pyramids..then the responsible thing is to seal the pyramids off from this generation entirely so that in a few hundred years, clever descendents can enjoy what we are to bat-=-= crazy to be allowed access into. Its not about our enjoyment, its about preserving overall. Some things rise above human considerations..world wonders are one of those.


Sorry, my bad.

It is not really Egyptian people who are calling for destruction of Pyramids, but some extremist, probably the same one that would love to see us destroyed as well. I hope that normal people will prevail in Muslim world, and demonstrations in Afghanistan regarding Taliban killing of a women are telling me that people had it enough.

One thing that more worries me then those extremist group is US destroying the planet. With all oil exploration, offshore drilling, mining, cars, mostly uncontrolled emission of chemical by large corporations, we are bigger danger to ourselves then those extremists.

Well, if this was a hoax, then I'd call it the mother of all screw ups and pooch screws the world has ever seen from a bad sense of humor. From what some news has been looking like, they heard the 'hoax' just fine over there too and darned if some don't think it's a fine idea anyway, now that someone mentions it. If this STARTED as nothing but a hoax, it may still end up with rubble.

@jhn7537


Id hate to see the Pyramids go, but I am curious to see what's below/inside them.... Maybe they would unlock secrets... Maybe there is something "alien" like under the pyramids... My curiousity runs wild when thinking about the Pyramids...

Yeah, we might find out whats deep inside chambers or underneath it alright. Secondary explosions may go on for weeks or give a real large portion of Egypt a real bad day. It's exceptionally unwise, in my view, to go blasting into places we only know are ancient in a way that's hard to imagine (These were very very old when Jesus was walking around), aligned perfectly in some magnetic and astronomic terms, suggesting more than a primitive technology level and what has already been discovered in terms of strong efforts to resist being broken into. I don't expect radical Islamists with a head for the 16th century as a daily life to consider such topics, but there could be some surprises in there from so many thousands of years ago. Many reasons to protect and be cautious with that very specific site, in my view.

Perhaps they are just trying to garner attention, like many other groups. How stupid are you to say you'll do something, so that they can make sure to safeguard the place?

"Hey guys, I'm going to rob SuchAndSuch Bank tomorrow at noon! I thought I'd let you all know, cuz I'm reallllly serious about it. Thanks."

LOL. What are they going to destroy them with? It's not easy to just tear down several million tons of solid rock. One of three things will happen:

A) They'll get tired and quit trying.
B) They'll tear it down piece by piece and whatever the pyramid's truly are will stop them somehow.
C) They'll tear it down and bankrupt their entire civilization over night...it'll be a multi-decade commitment to really knock 'em down.

I'm not sure folks appreciate how BIG that was in Afghanistan. There were good reasons people at the time said they were too big for the Taliban to obliterate, but you saw it right there in video. I'm sure the explosives it took set records for a one shot blast of the whole thing. What total obscenity. Animals... The specific ones who did this, that's all I can say for them.

The Pyramids would take many shots, I'm sure. Dozens probably, with clearing in between. It would be quite an endeavor with conventional explosives and drills, but there is absolutely no physical barrier to getting the job done. It's all simply quantity of explosive and time. Imagine the entire mountain tops of solid rock that are basically blown apart and driven off as mines. It's absolutely doable...if the world would allow it.

By the way, a google search showed new calls for the Pyramids being destroyed and new stories coming as recently as a couple hours ago. Ugh..... Seems a lot suddenly think it's not such a bad idea.

OK....I will revise my statement. The U.S. CARES about what QUANTITY of Radioactive Dust is Poisoning the Middle East and to what degree an Israeli Bombing Campaign of Iran could render Middle Eastern Oil Reserves UNUSABLE!

THAT is the degree that the U.S. CARES! Split Infinity

So, are they only going to destroy the 3 most popular pyramids or are they gonna destroy all of the Egyptian pyramids. There are literally thousands of them scattered throughout the Egyptian badlands, recently discovered using satellite imagery. Are they gonna stop in Egypt? What about the pyramids in South America? Las Vegas? Whats next? The Sistine Chapel?

I'm gonna toss this one in my bogus bin. They are not gonna destroy anything but their own reputations.

In the order to destroy something, you have to have it (available)

Those calling to destroy Pyramids don't have either - reputation or Pyramids. They are not Egyptian, and source of whole news is fishy as well...

The facade fades away when sunlight is shone into the eyes of the true believer. Blinded by discovery, they can only react with instinct.

Take down the pyramids? Lmao, gotta know who;s stupid enough to try that trick.

Just dropping in to ask:

Has there been any confirmation by the leader that he really intends to do this --- or is this the media playing a game of telephone in order to stir up more anger/fear?

There seems to be as much reporting in the last few hours that it's a hoax as others during this same time period, reporting new stories saying it's not. I dunno... (shrugs shoulders) I DO believe the radical Islamists see anything not of or by Islam or for Islam as being expendable at best and Idolatry at worst. Hence....a couple pieces of world heritage no longer exist and that was the reasoning.

I'm not personally sure at the moment what is propaganda over there and what isn't. With war possibly on the close horizon, the bogus reporting machines must be coming up to full speed on all sides.

It's high time this crap is put in the "Hoax' Forum because....



This is a parody Twitter account of Al-Mahmoud who tweeted the statement on the same day Morsy was announced president of Egypt.


Another hoax: cleric calls on President Morsy to destroy Giza Pyramids

Calls from a Bahraini Sunni cleric urging President Mohamed Morsy to destroy the Giza Pyramids were issued from a parody Twitter account online, the Daily News Egypt has learned.

Several right wing online portals ran with the controversial news as a means to raise alarms over the rise of an Islamist-led government in Egypt and its threat to rich historical sites. According to the rumours, Shiek Abd Al-Latif Al-Mahmoud denounced the pyramids as idolatry and asked President Morsy to destroy them.

Following a pattern of news based on hoaxes meant to incite panic about Islamists, this latest item suggests the method is effective in garnering media widesoread interest.

I'll post this again as it's obvious that people only read the first or last page and then comment.

Either that or they are so committed to believing this to be true that they are blind to any evidence to the contrary.
