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.

The Muslims wont be satisfied until they have erased every culture on the planet.
such a shame they were such CHICKENS they had to detonate the thing remotely
whatever happened to their insane PRIDE in DYING for alluh?
The Curse of Jonah be upon them-
They will be reduced to sackcloth and sitting in ashes.
Amazing that it lasted THIS long.
Dont forget that video set off muzzie riots in those countries, we cant do anything that offends them.
Muzzies are the most mentally twisted animals on the planet.
He ended up going to Nineveh, and none of their explosions can do anything to undo it.
Please don’t insult animals by comparing these terrorists to them.
The minions of the faux “prophet” may destroy the tomb, but the Memory of the Holy Prophet Jonah shall be Eternal.
Commemorated on September 22
Troparion Tone 2
The memory of your Prophet Jonah, / We celebrate today, O Lord. / By his prayers we entreat you: / O Christ God, save our souls
Time to take out Mecca
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.
Mat 10:24, “And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell.”
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
I guess they didn’t get the memo that Jonah is an important prophet in islam.
.... 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.
