I can't foresee them ever even getting near enough ... to destroy those monuments would take effort.. you'd have to be planting explosives all around it.. they are guarded .. so you'd have to have the guards participating, and the government... the moment a plan like that were even to begin to unfold, I believe international forces would intervene..
It's a word treasure
ever getting near enough? they run the country now, so i don't think getting near enough would be a problem.

Let's get it straight before some here seized upon the chance to bash your fellow humans of the muslim faith.
Who said they wanna destroy those structures?
They don't run the country, nor are their idealogy supported by the muslim majority in Egypt.
The very act of murders committed by these militants upon innocent humans only proved that they are NOT muslims, and had hijacked the peaceful religion, twisting it to suit their insane attention whoring.
Furthermore the Prophet Muhammad had only mentioned to destroy idols - objects of worship in the belief that those objects represents God.
Is Buddha God? Is the Sphinx God? Is a church God? Is a mosque God? Is the Ka'bah God? Are human tombstones God?
No. They are only objects created as remembrances, of honor, for men to remember their past and are NOT worshipped as God.
Our one true God needs not man made objects to be created inorder honor him, for He already lives amongst us in our hearts. He forbade images made of Himself, so that men will not pray to the image instead of to Him, who is omnipresent. or that the man-made images or structures be corrupted or misued to fool others.
By all means, destroy man-made structures. The destruction means nothing except vandalism by culprits whom must be brought to justice. What that is man-made, can be rebuilt.
The Jihadists are wild beasts and had only twisted and wilfully misinterpretated divine teachings, and had caused much harm to the religion, an act of apostacy that they will have to answer for one day, to man and God.
These extremists don't run the country so there will not be any government sanctioned destruction.
Jihadists. They don't run the country, nor are their idealogy supported by the muslim majority in Egypt.
The Brotherhood's credo was and is, "Allah is our objective; the Quran is our law, the Prophet is our leader; Jihad is our way; and death for the sake of Allah is the highest of our aspirations." Its most famous slogan, used worldwide, is "Islam is the solution."

No. I just hate dictators who believe they have the right to destroy ancient art.
I know how you feel, there are more mosques than churches in england, we cannot perform the nativity play anymore. or sell poppies in shopping markets with muslims in. but we also have to undestand that this is not the will of the average Islam follower.

Among the many assertions made by the senior Islamic leader was that the Egyptian pyramids need to be closed down to tourists.
“There will be tourism for purposes of [medical] treatment, but the tourism sites of the pyramids, the Sphinx, and Sharm Al-Sheikh will be shut down, because my task is to get people to serve Allah rather than people.
"destruction of the Sphinx and the Giza Pyramids in Egypt"
“In Islam, there is no such thing as art. Painting, singing, and dancing are forbidden.
