Muslims Destroy Historic Shrines, Turn Attention to Egyptian Pyramids

The disease of the soul calling itself Islam is a totalitarian phenomenon. Either it is destroyed, or everything else will be. Next on the list — the Egyptian pyramids:

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 wax. 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.”

This is a reference to the Muslim Prophet Muhammad’s companion, Amr bin al-As and his Arabian tribesmen, who invaded and conquered Egypt circa 641. Under al-As and subsequent Muslim rule, many Egyptian antiquities were destroyed as relics of infidelity. While most Western academics argue otherwise, according to early Muslim writers, the great Library of Alexandria itself—deemed a repository of pagan knowledge contradicting the Koran—was destroyed under bin al-As’s reign and in compliance with Caliph Omar’s command.

However, while book-burning was an easy activity in the 7th century, destroying the mountain-like pyramids and their guardian Sphinx was not—even if Egypt’s Medieval Mamluk rulers “de-nosed” the latter during target practice (though popular legend still attributes it to a Westerner, Napoleon).

If wiping away the pyramids to make room for more mosques still proves to be a technical challenge, maybe they can use nuclear weapons; it would be highly surprising if the Muslim Brotherhood doesn’t use the $billions of our money our rulers pour into Egypt to develop nukes.

How’s that Arab Spring working out for you, libs? Good thing Obama pulled a Jimmy Carter on our ally Mubarak; otherwise, the pyramids could have stood around offending Muslims for thousands more years.

In case anyone thinks Muslims wouldn’t really destroy such precious historical relics:

Islamist militants destroyed two tombs on Tuesday at the famous 14th century Djingareyber mosque in Timbuktu, classified by UNESCO as a world heritage site, residents said.

About a dozen militants arrived in an armored four-wheel drive truck, armed with pickaxes and hoes. They fired in the air to intimidate people and started smashing the tombs, said Ibrahim Cisse, who witnessed the scene. …

The new destruction comes after attacks last week on other historic and religious landmarks in Timbuktu that UNESCO called “wanton destruction”.

Islamists of the Ansar Dine group say the centuries-old shrines of the local Sufi version of Islam are idolatrous.

If that’s what they do to shrines created by the wrong sect of Islam, imagine what they will do to remnants of a civilization they completely revile. Then again, no need imagine:

    I just asked some liberal friends recently where they would travel to anywhere in the world if money were no object. They said Egypt to see the pyramids.

  2. Wizard45 says:

    Nah, they’ll never get the chance to destroy the pyramids. Why? ‘Cause our gubmint will give ’em a couple billion to boy ’em then pay a few billion more to have them dismantled stone by stone and shipped to Arizona and reassembled in the desert there.

  3. Sam Adams says:

    Calling for the destruction of the pyramids is symbolic for that religion in general. They want to destroy anything they disagree with.

    How’s that Muslim outreach working?

    Here’s another example of how the Left always saves it’s most vicious attacks for those it fears the most. And this time, their target is someone they have good reason to fear.

    Come on now, the Dark Ages were a wonderful time to drop dead at 22. Here’s to The coming Dark Ages II. In a thousand years or so, there might be a Second Enlightenment if enough Western European survive in caves.. Though I wouldn’t count on it.

    They deserve what they get, the haters are the muslims.

    We can drill for oil through glass.

  8. Winston Smith says:

    The Goa’uld System Lords will not be pleased. They put alot of slaves to work building them.

  9. Rotohammer says:

    Their propensity for blowing things up not withstanding, these Islamists will have a hard time destroying the pyramids. I see upside either way. If the pyramids stand, they stand as a mockery to Islam. If the Islamists manage to deface them, they will be defacing wonders the whole world knows and values. The wrecked pyramids will come to symbolize the decay of Islam.

    The big picture is that Satan developed his own personal religion by offering power, fame, and a five-year-old wife to Muhammad. Of course Muhammad was quick to jump at this opportunty. He knew that he was speaking to the serpent; however, he told others that it was the angel Gabriel. Even his mother didn’t believe this and told him it was the devil he was talking to.

    Satan wrote the Koran by plaguirizing parts of the Holy Bible to gain credibility; however, the Koran gives the exact opposite message that the Bible gives.

    No worries though, because Jesus will prevail!

    A perfect legacy for the destroyer in chief

  12. Ghost of FA Hayek says:

    The wrecked pyramids will come to symbolize the decay of Islam.
    And the cultural decay of Liberalism

  13. son of a preacher man says:

    Just tell me if they destroy the pyramids they will just be pleasing the jews who see them as symbols of their past slavery and oppression.

  14. Jimbo says:

    Just as with liberalism, mooslimb-hood is a cancer that destroys all in its path. It’s always been that way.

  15. smg45acp says:

    Maybe they could start flying planes into them.
    They don’t have the engineering skills to know the difference between pyramids and skyscrapers.

    Funny that 2,000 years before Islam Egypt was a world power building one of the wonders of the world.
    After 1,400 years of Islam they don’t do anything constructive at all.

  16. KHarn says:

    )How’s that Arab Spring working out for you, libs?(

    Liberals (commies) don’t care about the past. History gives people a sense of PALCE and BELONGING that might conflict with “the great plan”. As a russian once said: “the future is known to us, it’s the PAST that keeps changing”.

  17. Belfast says:

    Nail, head.
    Just like the Berlin Wall. The visible outward symbol of evil.

  18. Eric says:

    Check history folks. The mooslims already defaced the pyramids.

    “In AD 1300, a massive earthquake loosened many of the outer casing stones, which were then carted away by Bahri Sultan An-Nasir Nasir-ad-Din al-Hasan in 1356 to build mosques and fortresses in nearby Cairo.” (WIKI)
