Islamic fundamentalists in Syria have started to destroy archaeological treasures
Islamic fundamentalists in Syria have started to destroy archaeological treasures such as Byzantine mosaics and Greek and Roman statues because their portrayal of human beings is contrary to their religious beliefs. The systematic destruction of antiquities may be the worst disaster to ancient monuments since the Taliban in Afghanistan dynamited the giant statues of Buddha at Bamiyan in 2001 for similar ideological reasons.

In mid-January the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis), an al-Qa’ida-type movement controlling much of north-east Syria, blew up and destroyed a sixth-century Byzantine mosaic near the city of Raqqa on the Euphrates. The official head of antiquities for Raqqa province, who has fled to Damascus and does not want his name published, told The Independent: “It happened between 12 and 15 days ago. A Turkish businessman had come to Raqqa to try to buy the mosaic. This alerted them [Isis] to its existence and they came and blew it up. It is completely lost.”

And yet the idiot two faced libbie fools will somehow blame Christians or lump them together with these savages.
Islam is political first and a religion second.

But of course?

It's their ways?

It should be hunted down and erradicated, as nazism was in it's day.

Perhaps it will.

Re: Islamic fundamentalists in Syria have started to destroy archaeological treasures
May I first say, God damn them!!!

But then I must ask what do you think is happening to our own culture? No they are not blowing up the Louvre...yet, but their numbers in the west are destroying our culture the same as any bomb destroyed these treasures.

Do you think there is a muslim on this planet who would protect a Monet, a Rembrandt, a Da Vinci from the destructive hoards in their own culture?

Islam despises any expression or creativity by any other group because those expressions emphasizes just what islam lacks...humanity.

A young soldier told me he had bought some of those stolen treasures and sent them back home FEDEX. Then FEDEX lost the package and gave him the insurance money.

You should be asking FEDEX, the official mail courier for the government during our deployment, about what they have kept from the war.
