Someone on the board asked about a threat / promise to destroy the pyramids

Not unexpected at all. Simply a matter of time.
Calling them cavemen is a stretch.
Yeah! That’s the ticket. Destroy the pyramids and use the rock to form a massive hammer and sickle that can be seen from space. Idiots!
Watch. He is asked if they should fill in the Nile. He says, “Yes. We dig a better river.”
I kind of hope they succeed in this. Let’s leave no doubt that, under Islam, it means to be a living death.
I would watch this on PPV. It could become a series, “Blowing up Prominent Stuff in Egypt”. It wouldn’t be a long series, maybe 7 or 8 episodes.
Obviously none have GEICO insurance.
Well, so much for tourists returning to Egypt any time this decade..
Even that’s not fair. The Soviets actually built some things. They were wrong wrong wrong,,but they could build MiGs that gave us fits until the modern era, they could build rockets, bridges, giant statues, etc etc.
The sand people are pure parasites, only capable of using tools other build for them. Name me one thing they have built on their own.
They didn’t even build the Pyramids. The civilization that built them was much more advanced and has vanished.
They are incapable of building a hammer and sickle that could be seen from space unless they had foreigners do it for them.
What an idiot. You’d have to be illiterate and stupid to listen to this guy. Egyptian civilization is the country’s claim to World importance.
Kerry sailed, pyramids flailed
Youd have to be illiterate and stupid to listen to this guy.
There are more of those than not.
Any body who wants to destroy the Pyramids, has no idea what a tough job that would be.
Muzzie bro obama could be counted on to send sufficient explosives to help out.
And the tourism it brings is a big chunk of the Egyptian economy, which is in the tank right now.
Not enough gdp to buy the dynamite. These guys are a hoot.

The MSM slightly covered Morsi’s appointment of a radical Brotherhood member the governor over Luxor Valley of The Kings province. But that and other radical jerks by Morsi including sanctioned attacks on Christians is not mentioned
by the media covering Obama’s “bumps in the road”.
IMO, the pyramids would survive a nuclear explosion.
The only way to actually destroy them would be to do it a piece at a time. Certainly they could be chipped away at, but it would take time and work. Work, something Muzzies aren’t know for.
Just a side note. WHen the US got their hands on a Mig, they sent a famous US test pilot up in one (and he was excited to fly one). He put it into one of those Mig dives we had such a hard time dealing with. ALmost no control in a dive, it was a crude missile and he had to fight to pull it out of the dive before hitting the ground. I give them credit for a strategy - they made it fast and light and apparently planned to replace the pilots as needed!
Same with their space program. I was shocked to read that during the space race, it seems they sent up astronauts and sometimes couldn’t recover them from space. The plan was to announce the existence and triumphant success of the mission only after it landed safely with surviving passengers. I read of radio operators across the world and others detecting distress calls from orbit that got fainter etc. Replace the cosmonaughts - anything to compete.
Wasn't it in the Middle Ages that the limestone facing was mined from the pyramids for use in Egyptian buildings?
Of course they are! Their silent stones will not submit to the Rule of Allah! Therefore, they must be destroyed! Just like those timeless and wonderful Hindu sculptures that were erased from human history by the total idiots who can't seem to extricate themselves from the seventh century who are running the Taliban. Not to mention their moronic, "stepford wife" followers....
[Idle question: Is there any institution in Egypt right now that can protect the Sphinx from salafist desecration??? As a sometime student of Egypt's storied, magnificent past, and a possible future tourist, I would like to know the answer to that question.]
From my POV (FWIW), the Salafist and Muslim Brotherhood state of culture resembles most closely that of a pack of wild dogs that most "unclean" of animals in the sight of Islam. Only dogs treat their bitches better.
Thanks for your great observations, Conspiracy Guy.
They have off and on tried their best to do just that. The pyramids at one time were covered in a flat mortared covering of white stone. The visual effect of this must have been dazzling. That covering was removed over time and the material used to construct mosques and other buildings in the new Muslim capital of Cairo. Even with all that and centuries of neglect until Napoleon’s invasion the great pyramids at Giza have remained largely intact.
Piece of cake for their pos moon god allah...and his pedophile raping illiterate prophet / S
I hope that all the relics, large and small, in Egypt are protected by someone. Under Morsi I think they would have been in danger at some point. Islam is as fond of destroying symbols as they are destroying non-believers and each other. The Sphinx is surely a tempting target for their hatred. I can’t answer your question. Who knows what is next.
That would require much more work than they’re willing to do.
They need to pop a cap on that one.
The sphinx is really interesting. There’s speculation it was there before the pyramids. I’m one of those who believe that the Sphinx came first, the pyramids later.
The first historical record we have of it is in 1400 BC - and even then, they didn’t have a clue.
protect those Pyramids
Sorry to change the subject but did you hear about the destruction of a Mayan Pyramid by some real estate developers. I caught a snip on the radio yesterday and forgot to check it out when I got home. I guess I should go see what I can find. The Sphinx is the most interesting monument in Egypt to me.
However the civilization that built the pyramids is long dead. The current arabs inhabiting Egypt were foreign invaders.
“One death is a tragedy; one million is a statistic.” - Joseph Stalin
I wholeheartedly agree. The geological and architectural evidence is conclusive.
Even a mainline Egyptologist (I can’t remember his name, the book is around here somewhere) points to that New Kingdom copy of an Old Kingdom record — which states that Khafre repaired the Sphinx — and the fact that the causeway to the Khafre pyramid was built to avoid the Sphinx enclosure, and attributes the Sphinx’ construction to Khufu. Right idea, but wrong date.
Another suggestion has been that Khufu’s successor — Djedefre, elder brother to Khafre — built the Sphinx, but there’s pretty much no ancient evidence for that, and Djedefre started construction of his pyramid at Abu Roash. The site is now protected, but in recent centuries the unfinished structure was carried off by the camel-load to build stuff in Cairo.
> IMO, the pyramids would survive a nuclear explosion.
If the nuke were inside a pyramid, no. But outside, damage certainly, but your remark reminded me of an old saying in Egypt, “Man fears Time. Time fears the Pyramids.”
It’s a fascinating thesis just how far back it goes. Something to consider that if it goes as far back as 5k, we are closer to Moses than we are to the builders of the Sphinx.

Gee, I wonder how much exertion and time it would take to destroy the pyramids? ...one man with hammer and chisel, a trillion years? 500 men with hammers and chisels, 1 billion years? 50,000,000 men with hammers and chisels, a thousand years? OK, it’s a deal, but you have the spread the rubble far and wide...
That’s already happened. This is the high water mark for Salafism in the ME. Egyptians, aren’t Saudis, aren’t Turks, aren’t Iranians, and so on and so forth. The Egyptians had a taste of life under the Salafists and they don’t like it. Neither do the Turks.
If they get their way via repression, they lose. If they don’t, they lose.
I figure it that way too, CG.
That is to say, I agree with your observation that "Islam" [you can read a whole bunch of other deranged, dysfunctional human attitudes under that head, too, including Western Left Progressivism] is in the business of undermining and supplanting any and all human cultures which do not conform to the seventh-century Mohammed Model of human societal order. As determined by the Will of Allah in every particular, of course.
I do so hope, too, that "all the relics, large and small, in Egypt are protected by someone."
One thing that human history tells you: When you forget the past, it's difficult to discern a living future. And so, the default position becomes an historical past that no one now living remembers. Certainly not in a way that anyone now living has actually learned anything about in, say, the public schools. And so we humans get to repeat the history of which we seem to be deliberately ignorant, now and forever, one more time....
Moses was circa 1450 BC, 3463 years ago, and at that time the Great Pyramid was a mere 1100 years old. Mind boggling. :’)
The civilization which built the pyramids in Egypt isn't dead. They were absorbed into the Roman Empire, and later became Christian in religion, finally becoming a part of the eastern half of the Roman Empire, when that entity became the only vestige left of what the Romans had created in the Mediterranean Basin, which today is referred to as the Byzantine Empire. The descendants of those who built the pyramids are those we call today, the Coptic Christians of Egypt...
So then a metaphor by the Sheik to destroy the Coptic Christians.
Yep, destroy both the monuments, and the people who created them, so that nothing stands as competition to the pedo-pirate Mohammad and his twisted death cult...
Thanks. I found them yesterday. It’s really sad. Even though there are many of them both found and yet to be discovered. All that work yurned into a road bed.
Hey, it’s not as if they were being used for anything. /s
