In my opinion its not about destroying idols its building the wall between west and east. Muslim brotherhood does not want any western influence in
its not about tourism money as tourism in Egypt has allready fall 30% and it doesn´t seems to matter to muslim brotherhood when they want to destroy
everything which might bring tourism to their areas. As long as there is civil unrest and muslim brotherhood ruling it doesn´t draw intrest to that
area as nobody from unmuslim country feel safe there.
Egypt will become like Pakistan, where no tourists are welcome.
Its very sad if they do that, those monuments are not idols in any means, you don´t see tourists worshipping, praying ancient egyptian gods, there is
no fandom for these monuments. We appreaciate the history of the mankind.
