An Egyptian jihad leader, with self-professed links to the Taliban, called for the destruction of the Sphinx and the Giza Pyramids in Egypt, drawing ties between the Egyptian relics and Buddha statues, local media reported this week.
Murgan Salem al-Gohary, an Islamist leader twice-sentenced under former President Hosni Mubarak for advocating violence, called on Muslims to remove such idols.
All Muslims are charged with applying the teachings of Islam to remove such idols, as we did in Afghanistan when we destroyed the Buddha statues, he said on Saturday during a television interview on an Egyptian private channel, widely watched by Egyptian and Arab audiences.
God ordered Prophet Mohammed to destroy idols, he added. When I was with the Taliban we destroyed the statue of Buddha, something the government failed to do.
His comments came a day after thousands of ultraconservative Islamists gathered in Tahrir Square to call for the strict application of Sharia law in the new constitution.
But in retaliation to Goharys remarks, the vice president of Tunisias Ennahda party, Sheikh Abdel Fattah Moro, called the live program and told Gohary that famous historic military commander Amr ibn al-Aas did not destroy statues when he conquered Egypt.
So who are you to do it? he wondered. The Prophet destroyed the idols because people worshiped them, but the Sphinx and the Pyramids are not worshiped.
Gohary, 50, is well-known in Egypt for his advocacy of violence, Egypt Independent reported.

Destroy the biggest idol of all, the Kaaba.
He just wants to destroy them because they were built by Jews.......
Islam is as Islam does: wanton destruction, mass murder, pedophilia, homosexuality, bestiality, etc.
One would hope this might be a moment when Islam would look within itself and grow. How many such moments have there been?
At any rate, we see a modern day religion terrified by relics from a religion that died off thousands of years ago.
It’s current believers who claim their’s is a supreme being, proving to non-believers that they suffer from an inferiority complex on his behalf.
A case study in devolution.
I have a better idea: destroy the idiots. Leave no islamist alive.
One day all Islamists will be thrown into the lake of fire.
I don’t know how serious this guy is but at least I have seen the pyramids. I recommend everyone go see them while they can.
Maybe they could just ask the Israelis to nuke the Giza Plateau for them and make a clean breast of it.
If they destroy the Pyrminds
Who want go to Egypt NOWWW HELLO
That good way destroy your tourist industry
May we expect that after Islamists have achieved their goal of controlling all of North Africa, have levelled the Sphinx and pyramids, and desroyed the Suez canal as well (no more tanker shipments to Europe), then the Kaaba will be destroyed?
That fugly face belongs in a Nuremburg noose.
Then elevate the bearded muzzie slowly until he’s dancing on his tippytoes.
Bring the popcorn. Enjoy for as long as it lasts.
Saudi Arabia is already liquidating many of the old important landmarks of Islam to build new crap about the Kaaba. The biggest hypocrisy about Islam is that they hate “idolatry” BUT THEY PRAY TO A HUGE IDOL!
Mubarak should have had him shot.
Murgan Salem al-Gohary , I bet his real name is Oscar
