I tend to think that this statement; "Calls by Islamists to Destroy Egyptian Pyramids Begin"
may be pure Propaganda
against Muhammad Mursi and the brotherhood.
The article states:
According to several reports in the Arabic media, prominent Muslim clerics have begun to call for the demolition of Egypt’s Great Pyramids—or,
in the words of Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi‘i, those “symbols of paganism,” which Egypt’s Salafi party has long planned to cover with
Most recently, Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs” and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt’s new president,
Muhammad Morsi, to “destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what the Sahabi Amr bin al-As could not.”
also the same words and same author at:
If some one can find these statements other than in this article and not published
by the opposition, I might believe it.
Mursi and the brotherhood have enough to contend with, like reinstatement of Parliament
and the military who oppose them.
Is there any link to where this information in this article came from beyond
"several reports in the Arabic media" ?
I did go to Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi‘i, as directed in the sites reference,
but all was Arabic. The same goes for Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud:
Since I Do Not read the language,Idon't know what was actually said. Anyone read Arabic?
With that said, if the statements are true and not propaganda I must assume the brotherhood
is not interested in the income that the country brings in from all of the tourism that comes
into Egypt by non-Muslim visiting theses ancient historical sites.
Well then ...they also have interest in destroying half the Aswan dam as it was half built by the
Or the Suez Canal that was developed by non-Muslims and used Egyptians as forced labor
most of which were non-Muslim.
An estimated 1.5 million people from all over the world helped build the Suez Canel.
How many of those were non-Muslim?
Maybe non-Muslims must make it clear to Muslims that if they destroy Egyptian history,Mecca and Medina should be reduced rubble, and not allow these
Muslim holy sites from being rebuilt.
If they have no respect for the worlds heritage, why respect theirs.
The Israelis should also demolish the infamous Al-Aqsa mosque on the Jewish holiest site - Temple Mount.
