Officials: ISIS blows up Jonah's tomb in Iraq
CNN ^ | July 24, 2014 | Mohammed Tawfeeq

Posted on 07/24/2014 7:20:54 PM PDT by Innovative

The holy site is thought to be the burial place of the prophet Jonah, who was swallowed by a whale or fish in both the Islamic and Judeo-Christian traditions.

Militants belonging to the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, planted explosives around the tomb and detonated the explosion remotely Thursday, civil defense officials there told CNN.

He ended up going to Nineveh, and none of their explosions can do anything to undo it.

I firmly believe Mecca will be destroyed in time. Evil will eventually be removed.

I hate to sound naïve, but if this is also an Islamic shrine, why are they blowing it up? As well as others in Iraq? It makes no sense.

Of course, why do I expect rationality from these people?

Think of it as Protestants blowing up a Catholic church because it has ‘idols’ and you’ll get some insight. Extreme Sunnis view the Shia practice of venerating shrines as heretical.

The destruction of Islam will be a component of the Apocalypse, so I would anticipate any Heaven on Earth, following their demise.

Because shrines are idolatry.
Check out 2 Kingsi 18:4.
They have a good point. Reckon why YHWH buried Moses himself? Deut 34:6

.... Well at least they blew up something that was unimportant! ..... OK ... just kidding .... this WAS a major historical site ... And I am very concerned that this event is eerily similar to the Talibani behavior of destroying up major religious iconic sites before the events of 9/11.

..... Yup ... you are correct ..... Most of these folks are illiterate and unknowledgable of their history .... they are mostly only schooled in the "Do's and Don'ts" of the teachings of Islam. They do not understand and are totally unaware that the three major religions .... Christianity, Judaism, and Islam share the same early history.

Not only is your crude comment very disrespectful, but because of it we may have more embassies attacked overnight, like with that video.

I guess its time for the bunker again.

I been wondering how I can get a couple of those muzzie slave wimmin for my own,

That may not be a singular statement of fact but it certainly qualifies as a well supported theory. ;-)

Jonah is a prophet in the Quran as well.

ISIS is evil that even Muslims can hate.

"muzzie" [pig piss be upon mo-HAM-head] is too kind for these 6th century goat humpers...

since death and destruction are all they can create, and their sense of idols makes them believe that a tomb holds some kind of power, the civilized peoples of the world should turn their moon rock into pebbles and see if their limp dicked [g]od pops out and yells 'BOO' at us...

we could end the charade for some 800 million misguided people overnight...

“The Muslims wont be satisfied until they have erased every culture on the planet.” - Sunni Muslims.

“The Muslims wont be satisfied until they have erased every human being on the planet.” - Shiite Muslims.

“The Muslims wont be satisfied until one of the two major factions has won.” - Moderate Muslims.

Meanwhile, Mecca and Medina dangle like ripe fruits ...

NOT QUITE!!!! ISIS is the direct result of obama and the arch-warmongers Hillary, Kerry, Samantha World Power, Brzezinski, and whatnot starting and fueling the war in Syria!!!!

What the same wrecking crew (including Nuland this time) has been doing in Ukraine is even WORSE!!!

Then we have that feckless Marie Harf trying to spread their propaganda, like a modern-day Goebbels. But she’s WAY too stupid to get away with it!!!!

Hands off the Orthodox Christian world!!!! The REAL enemies are islam and obama and the wrecking crew behind him!!!!

I’m sure I’ve wrote “Muzzie” before but it’s too cutesy and quasi-affectionate sounding to me, I’ve not even sure it’s strictly pejorative. Evil shouldn’t be called by a nick name.

FMDJ calls refers to them with the archaic term “Mohammedan”, that I like.

“12 century Swine” is a little long but also works.

I don’t know whether that was even the real tomb of Jonah. That mosque was near the former site of Nineveh, but we don’t know what happened to Jonah after his preaching, and the incident with the plant. Jonah might have gone home.

The tomb is destroyed, but we read the ENTIRE Book of Jonah every Holy Saturday morning!!!!

Phooey to islam! They celebrate Ramadan by blowing up monuments and slaughtering people. We should observe it by eating pork (except during the Dormition Fast, of course)!!!!

How about those Palestinians weeping and moaning on cam about their kids being blown up after they sent them to the places Israels gave advance bombing notice, so they(their own kids) would be blown up?

Its impossible to take their drama serious,
they seem to want to die,
so Israels are doing them a favor like putting down rabid dogs.
