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.
He was sentenced twice, one of the two sentences being

OK, muzzie! Here’s a pack of plastic teaspoons — have at it! (And pay no attention to the bullets...)
Lets see, fellow country men starving vs. keeping infidels out, which do you think a good muslim would choose?
But the ancient monuments are making people distracted????
The fact that these people are insane is as plain as day. The fact that most of the world will not face up to this fact is one of the great mysteries of our time - perhaps the great mystery of our time.
How about Egypt simply remove all Islamists by execution for treason?
I’m imagining ;^) hints that you’re being sarcastic, kind of? But actually, that’s depraved.
Murgan Salem al-Gohary is depraved. Islam is a depraved false religious cult. If muzzies worshipped the G-d of Creation they wouldn’t give a rip about the antique remnants of vanished religions. But they do.
And since al-Gohary served with the Taliban in Afghanistan commiting unspeakable atrocities in the name of Islam, yes he deserves to die slowly & horribly at the hands of the hated “infidels”.
Well, you cannot say the Devil doesn’t have a sense of humor or at least irony.
The intended, enjoyed infliction of extreme pain, the "lets' get the popcorn" "do it slowly and horribly" part is depraved.
The early Judges and Kings of Israel killed ---- but didn't torture --- their death-deserving enemies. As I just read this morning (really) Samuel finished off the Amalekite king, Agag, swiftly with the sword. And he --- Amalek--- was as wicked as any hell-bent Muslim cleric/warlord.
Be careful. Torture-enthusiasts resemble their masters, the demons.
Islam is not the religion of peace, it is the religion of destruction. It is an ape hammering a chronometer to bits and claiming they invented the gear.
So.... offing Osama bin Laden with a round through the eye socket is OK, after all the human destruction he caused.
All right, then, I withdraw the slow death scenario for this al-Gohary creep. Too gruesome, got it. Not that there was ever a snowball’s chance it would actually happen.
How about a nice surgically clean al-Alwaki style drone strike, then? More civilized, for sure.
And by the way, the Nuremburg defendants were hanged not with a trapdoor drop, but hauled up off the floor. Took some of them twenty minutes to die. Wonder what the motivation was.
Good God - and here I didn’t think anyone could be more stupid in misunderstanding “idols” than certain religious forum posters. These ‘people’ are beyond sick in the head.
Thank you. There is a significant difference between legitimate capital punishment and revenge-torture. In these extreme cases, and with the felon’s guilt proven beyond doubt, you’ll find me a defender of the death penalty: swift, severe, and certain.
