Islamic State savages destroy antiquities in Mosul



Any artefact that’s not Islamic is superfluous, idolatrous and blasphemous evidence of ignorance of the one true god, Allah. So it must be destroyed.

ISLAMIC State militants armed with sledgehammers and jackhammers have destroyed priceless ancient artefacts in Iraq’s city of Mosul, a video released by the jihadists yesterday shows.

The destruction sparked widespread alarm, with archaeologists comparing it to the 2001 demolition of the Bamiyan Buddhas in Afghanistan by the Taliban.

The UN cultural agency ­demanded an emergency meeting of the Security Council, arguing that heritage protection was an ­integral part of Iraq’s security.

Ooh, I bet they’re scared…

The video shows militants knocking statues off their plinths and rampaging through Mosul’s Ninevah Museum’s collection, which includes artefacts from the Assyrian and Hellenistic periods dating back several centuries before Christ. It also shows jihadists using a jackhammer to deface an imposing granite Assyrian winged bull at the Nergal Gate in Mosul.

“Muslims, these artefacts behind me are idols for people from ancient times who worshipped them instead of God,” said a militant. “The so-called Assyrians, Akkadians and other peoples had gods for the rain, for farming, for war … and they tried to get closer to them with offerings. The prophet removed and buried the idols in Mecca with his blessed hands.”

The double standards that infect Islam on display again, since if you even dare look at a Qur’an in the wrong way (even a Qur’an printed yesterday), you can be killed. But other people’s religious artefacts are fair game for the Islamic headbangers.

One day perhaps we can look forward to all evidence of Islam being wiped from the planet in a similar way.

    The problem, however, is that news outlets call this destruction and show of utter ignorance “extremism”. It is, of course, not extremism, but exactly what islam is about.
    All muslims around the world will rejoice in this desecration.
    It is the will of Mohammed, after all.

  2. Once again a monumental look at how Islam and its teachings are of no understanding, tolerance and is hate and destruction based. They destroy their own homes and cities and remote towns so that they are uninhabitable all in the name of a religion that is demonic from an evil hatred inspired book called the Qu’ran. That is all these barbaric Islamists are taught, they choose to learn nothing else but this hatred inspired religion that has no bounds to the barbarity they meet out. Now there’s millions of people living off the goodwill of Western countries providing food and shelter to them. To some extent this is counter productive as when these refugees are given a new home in the West, not by any Islamic state, they transport this hatred to the country that extends a welcoming hand and in every case, that welcoming hand is bitten.
