ISIS Set to Destroy [ALL] Biblical History in Iraq
The Daily Beast ^ | 6 hours ago

Posted on 07/07/2014 9:39:24 AM PDT by drewh

Last week, al-Baghdadi’s men returned to the Mosul Museum. They broke the lock to the storage rooms, and they have occupied the building ever since. “They say they are awaiting instructions from their guide [al-Baghdadi] to destroy these statues,” says Rashid, the National Museum director who is in touch with the local staff. Typically, al-Baghdadi is looking for the moment when he can get the most global attention

“We as Iraqis are incapable of controlling the situation by ourselves,” Abbas Qureishi, director of the “recovery” program for the Iraqi Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, told me. It’s not just a matter of the museums, he said. Mosul is in the middle of 1,791 registered archeological sites, including four capitals of the Assyrian empire. “The Iraqi army will be obliged to conduct operations next to these archeological sites,” said Qureishi. The jihadists “will destroy them and say the Iraqi army bombed these sites.”

“So we are asking Americans and Europeans—especially Americans—to understand the gravity of the situation,” said Qureishi, and “to put pressure on the governments of their countries to intervene militarily.”

The jihadist appetite for violent iconoclasm already has proved to be tremendously dangerous for the West. Those who claim to speak for a vengeful Allah take great delight in smashing idols wherever and whenever they can get to them. Theirs is a war of symbols. In early 2001 the Afghan Taliban, encouraged by al Qaeda, blew to bits the towering Buddhas of Bamiyan. Western leaders wrung their hands but took no substantive action. A few months later, the jihadists attacked some of the most spectacular icons in the world: the skyscrapers of the World Trade Center in New York City.

Please save us from ourselves. All we know is death and destruction. We know this can all stop if we turn to your compassionate God, but we cannot, so we will continue to be mired in islam and be the stain on humanity.

Here is your clue as to why Islamic peoples tend to act so completely deranged ... The systemic interbreeding, via first cousin marriages:

The Reproductive Health Journal reports the following rates on consanguinity in Muslim countries. Where a statistical range has been recorded, I have used the lower parameter:

http://www.reproductive-health-journal.com/content/6/1/17/table/T1

Algeria: 22.6%
Bahrain: 39.4%
Egypt (North): 20.9%
Egypt (Nubia-South): 60.5%
Iraq: 47.0%
Jordan: 28.5%
Kuwait: 22.5%
Lebanon: 12.8%
Libya: 48.4%
Mauritania: 47.2%
Morocco: 19.9%
Oman: 56.3%
Palestine: 17.5%
Qatar: 54.0%
Saudi Arabia: 42.1%
Sudan: 44.2%
Syria: 30.3%
Tunisia: 20.1%
United Arab Emirates: 40.0%
Yemen: 40.0%

According to the BBC, 55% of Pakistani-Britons are married to a first cousin, and as a corollary to that produce “just under a third” of all children in the UK with genetic illnesses, despite being only 3% of the total births.

As a direct result of inbreeding, the Muslim population is the only population on earth that is mentally and physically devolving. This inherent weakness makes Muslim populations more susceptible to nefarious, oppressive leadership and mass manipulation.

Some of the stuff is likely more than Bric-a-brac.

The understanding of the history of humanity helps one to understand the present. Understanding that Islam is disconnected religiously from what preceded it and that Protestantism is a western phenomena has a certain value. Having traces of Christianity snuffed out that preserve traditions that are traceable back more than 1600 years, and that were once dominant in various regions is a great loss.

Isn’t this like the movie Ground Hog’s Day as the same thing happened in Afghanistan 20 years ago and the World begged the Taliban not to do it under the KKKlinton-Era and not only did they do it, but invited Osama in afterwards-— history repeats itself under another failed Progressive President.

Hey guys, if you want to destroy idols, there is a big, black cubic building in Mecca that, I’m told, “the Kaaba was at some point dedicated to Hubal, a Nabatean deity, and contained 360 idols that probably represented the days of the year. According to Ibn Ishaq, an early biographer of Muhammad, the Ka’aba was itself previously addressed as a female deity.”
