They don't run the country, nor are their idealogy supported by the muslim majority in Egypt.
Has this ever stopped Jihadist from causing a great deal of pain and suffering or the destruction of monuments before?
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.
This is why they are so dangerous and should be watched and countered at every step of the way.
Furthermore the Prophet Muhammad had only mentioned to destroy idols - objects of worship in the belief that those objects represents
Meanwhile, that's one religious point of view out of many on a planet of 7.8 Billion people. You don't see the intrinsic controversy over that alone?
Is Buddha God? Is the Sphinx God? Is a church God? Is a mosque God? Is the Ka'bah God? Are human tombstones God?
Stop right there. Think about who you're talking about for a second.
Jihadists. They are not known for rational thinking. With them potentially anything goes.
No. They are only objects created as remembrances, of honor, for men to remember their past and are NOT worshipped as God.
They should be protected against all who would destroy them Jihadist included.
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.
That's the kind of talk that get's peoples heads removed if they disagree with which version of God you are talking about.
See the conundrum?
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.
I'm sorry but I think your logic is not only flawed but lacking in empathy for the vast majority on Earth who appreciate our very real past and
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.
In the meantime they should be stopped butt cold whenever and wherever possible.
My two pennies
Thanks for you reply, but I don't need you to agree with me on every point I made with your one liners. You may not comprehend what I had wrote, but
that is common.
Many claimed to have read the scriptures, but only few comprehend, or want to comprehend.
1. Do allow me to first of all clear your misconceptions of the conundrum you faced. Is the God of Abraham, the patriach of the jews, muslims and
christians the same?
I assure you, ANYONE who claims that they are not the same is guilty of apostacy and will be served with justice amongst religious states, regardless
if they are jews, christians or muslims.
What happened in the past is the past. We are all only flawed, more so our peasant ancestors whom had not been allowed access to the scriptures.
Today, we know better and the truth, and thus we must NOT make the same mistakes again.
2. You claimed that I do not have empathy over man made structures of history significance. I don't. I have no empathy for things, only for living
The reason for what I wrote was for a WIDER perspective, because I had witnessed men going crazy, turning upon each other, when an empty church, or a
mosque, or a temple, or historical structure is razed to the ground.
Is it worth brother killing brother over objects? Worse when they rampage amongst the community instead of investigating and searching out the actual
culprits, like now - many casting muslims in the same light as jihadists, either out of ignorance or just plain mischief.
The Rule of Law must prevail. NO human would allow the free destruction of another man's property without justice being served. A man-made thing, no
matter how significant, can be rebuilt again, but once innocent lives are lost, it's forever. Do have empathy for your fellow man instead of
This advice is worth more than 2 pennies - It may save your life one day.
