Egypt's Government Planning to Destroy the Great Pyramids?
http://www.christianpost.com/news/egypts-government-planning-to-destroy-the-great-pyramids-77996/ ^

Posted on 07/10/2012 5:39:49 PM PDT by dewawi

An online magazine has offered translations to Arabic news sources that purportedly indicate that Egypt's Salafi party has come forth with plans to demolish Egypt's Great Pyramids in an effort to bring down what it calls "symbols of paganism."

Bahrain's "Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs" and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, has reportedly urged Egypt's new president, Muhammad Morsi, to "destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what Amr bin al-As could not," according to conservative political publication FrontPage Magazine.

Al-Mahmoud's comments relate to Amr bin al-As, a companion of the Islam's founder Muhammad, who invaded Egypt in 641 and began destroying Egyptian artifacts. Some early Muslim writers have noted that Amr bin al-As even destroyed the great Library of Alexandria, which was a hub of knowledge for the ancient world.

Amr bin al-As, however, did not have the means to destroy the massive pyramid structures back then, but the Salafi party now has the technology available to do just that.

Unbelievable. Time to cross another country off my "want to visit" list. I am down to five or six countries that I would even think about visiting.

Of course I would hate to see them destroyed but it would be interesting to see what secrets they still hold.

They wouldn’t take them apart stone by stone; they would BLOW THEM UP.

Maybe the muzzie brothers will let Bill Clinton’s wife detonate the first batch of explosives since she helped bring muzzie style “democracy” to Egypt.

I crossed it off my list for 50 years when Egyptians cheered after the 9-11 attacks.

This goes with the fundamentalists in Mali who have, ironically enough, destroyed Sufi monuments. Of course, they will kill Sufi of either Sunni or Shia persuasions. They are the moderate Muslims everyone pins their hopes on. Lots of luck.

Islam could only deface them a long time ago now they go against the Qur'an and use western technology to blow them up.

This is so wrong. I’m sure the Pyramids hold some secrets and if they blow them up, we will lose those secrets as well. I’m convinced that with the exceptions of the Sufis and the Druze, Islam is basically a doomsday machine.

I guess they could try to blow them up, but I’d speculate those babies could take a direct hit from a nuke and still be standing.

What a bunch of laughable clowns.

After the Luxor massacre, Egypt should be off anyone’s “want to visit” list. But to the topic, the Egyptian military is not going to allow any Egyptian civilians to screw with its biggest cash cow.

I’d throw the Ahmadiyya movement in with the Sufis and the Druze.

I’d really like to ask someone in the State Department why we’re not doing something to promote Sufism, the Druze, Ahmadiyya? They’re actually quite tolerable.

I had a Pakistani friend (Ahmadiyya), and he told me horror stories of these maniacs in Pakistan running around blowing up the tombs of Sufi saints, killing Ahmadiyya, and other assorted nonsense. Which is why he left Pakistan.

Thanks dewawi.
Al-Mahmoud's comments relate to Amr bin al-As, a companion of the Islam's founder Muhammad, who invaded Egypt in 641 and began destroying Egyptian artifacts. Some early Muslim writers have noted that Amr bin al-As even destroyed the great Library of Alexandria, which was a hub of knowledge for the ancient world.
There's no doubt about that -- and there's also no doubt about the fact that Julius Caesar didn't.

To all -- please ping me to other topics which are appropriate for the GGG list.

"Egypt's Government Planning to Destroy the Great Pyramids?"

The muslims started on this project a long time ago - who do you think pried off the polished limestone outer casing and carted it off to build Cairo?

Not just any wax either.....Muhammed told them Allah commanded they cover it with ear wax.......

They have been collecting it for 1,400 years now and have a Minivan full..

The library at Alexandria comes to mind...think of the texts in that place that are no longer available to us. Must of been a heck of a wienie roast (all beef, of course).

Kind of like the Mayan writings being destroyed and so many other examples of prejudice destroying information out of fear of the unknown or the different.

Without it’s wonders from the ancient world, tourists will find little reason in venturing to Egypt. In the end that may be the determining factor in whether or not the extremists prevail...

Muslims don’t care about tourism. Never have and never will. They look at tourism as an uncontrollable infidel influence on any Muslim that has to interact with them.

I thought the druze were a separate religion from islam altogether. From what I understand they’re an esoteric religion and anyone who reveals their secrets is killed.

Sufi tend to be introspective and spiritually focused, not rabid actors-out. Which is viewed by the mad jihadists as being unfaithful.

Undoubtedly this is a trail balloon to see if the “international Community” will pony up billions of dollars for the so-called “preservation” of the pyramids.

Instead, I suggest the international community set up a pay per view to see the day when they blow them up. Artillery and tank shellings would be pretty good for viewership.

Remember the good ol’ days when Washington Redskins running back John Riggins peered down the front of the wife of the Egyptian Ambassador at a White House reception and talked about how much he wished he could explore the pyramids?

And everyone laughed about it.

I know I damn sure did.

Between dollars and Euro....there’s tons of cash flowing into Egypt on a daily basis. The entire nation is getting a piece of the action. I think the last thing you’d want to do....is mess this deal up. It’d be like allowing armed gangs to wander around Las Vegas, and let forty tourists a week to get whacked.

The filthy Islamists would do such destruction for one purpose only, and that would be to remove any history other than their own to hasten the subjugation of the people of Egypt.

Once someone explains to these worthless Saracen bastards that if they do this then the cursed infidel tourists won't come with their money and spend it on hotel rooms, taxis, meals , cheap souvenirs etc. which are the main part of the Egyptian economy and the people will get hungry and pissed off and throw THEIR worthless Saracen asses out like they did Mubarack all this nonsense about destroying the pyramids will stop.
