Interesting that the OP used the terms 'mindless' and 'stupid' in this thread.

Maybe they do, and that is their reasoning,
Are you a muslim hater?
This just gets me .. You know what , even thou I am a very tolerant man, in the light of such idiocy, yes You can call me a hater of idiotic Muslims that know only how to destroy something in the name of something they believe in .. I mean WTF? Destroying the Pyramids and the Sphinx ? Really ?? Those creations of man are a wonder and are god knows how old, and some dumb fu*** (sorry mods censure if you want but this is the truth) want to destroy them because of what ? Because somebody told them its their right to do so ?
So if my god (whoever that might be) told me I can go and kill /rape / destroy whatever I want because it is not dandy with him then I have the right to do so ? Please clarify ? Damn it I hate idiots , and I don't not care what nationality/faith/race they are ..edit on 13/11/12 by Thill because: (no reason given)
the same could be said about american & uk & canadian politicians ..they kill rape & destroy whatever they get their hands on as well. its hypocritical to lay blame solely on 1 group.
he who is without sin cast the first stone...
The destruction of human history is a travesty....

I am a Muslim (saying that makes me feel like I'm 'coming out' these days), and I would cry my eyes out if the extremists destroyed those amazing structures. It has been a big wish of mine to see them in person one day and I know a few Muslim friends who have actually been on holiday there who thought they were amazing. Most of us would be horrified if this were to happen.

Most of us can tell the difference (see for instance my post previous page). The people who cant tell the difference are brainwashed partisans. The far-right type wants to blanket bomb and kill anyone who is not a Christian, and the far-left type wants to hold hands and sing peace-songs with jihadist psychopaths. These wing-nuts are part of the problem.
Of course you would. Egyptians love their Pyramids, claiming them as their own (I dont agree that the current day Egyptians built the Pyramids, but thats another story). They are also a great source of Tourism for the country of Egypt. I doubt the Egyptian Government will allow their destruction.

Who said they wanna destroy those structures?
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 God.
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 achievements.
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.

Of course I do understand that a bunch of Gods with Animal-Heads must seem kind of weird to the muslim-eye, but Im pretty sure the majority of muslims understand why it is important to protect ancient cultural heritage.
Question: How do the general populace muslims view the destruction of the Buddhas by the Taliban? Is this something that is publicly discussed?

Good luck tearing down the pyramids.
All the positive things that could be accomplished with that kind of effort, and they want to tear something down? A thing that brings in a lot of tourist dollars?
