Islamists Demand Destruction Of World Icon

Weeks after the Muslim Brotherhood’s Mohamed Morsi entered office as Egyptian President, calls began to rise for the destruction of those “symbols of paganism” — the Egyptian Pyramids.

That was in late June and early July, but following last week’s U.S. presidential election, Islamic clerics again demanded the destruction of one of the Seven Wonders of the World.

Murgan Salem al-Gohary, a jihadist leader with ties to the Taliban, called for the “destruction of the Sphinx and the Giza Pyramids in Egypt.” Gohary said “all Muslims are charged with applying the teachings of Islam to remove such idols.”

More moderate voices within Egypt are trying to counter Gohary, but it’s doubtful how successful they will be when considering the actions of Islamic fundamentalists in other countries.

    Honestly,that would be a shame but this would be so far down on my list of cares it would almost be irrelevant. I care more that we get our military out of the middle east and then let them blow up anything they want as long as they keep it all in the muslim countries. I am pretty much tired of trying to teach these tribes how to respect each other.Our loss of life in trying to help these fools is unbelievably painful to think about ,and yet they hate and disrespect us. Let them fight it out. If they ever set foot on American soil or touch the hair on the head of an American we should blow them into eternity.I am indeed pretty sick of these cave dwelling fools and what they have done to my society and life.

    I agree with Maggie….let them blow each other and their heritage to smithereans for all I care…the little boy in my profile pic…well, he is 4 1/2 now…he has spent two of the years of his little life with me (his Nan’) because his mom and dad were in Iraq trying to help the ingrates!!! Enough American blood shed, get us out of there…unless they mess with us again and then just blow them the heck away!!!!

      Bless your grandson and all the other children who’s parents got caught up in this mess.I pray for all of us to be together soon and I work very hard for those who need help when they do come home. I think the reason that the Sandra Fluke’s in this world disgust me so much is they do not have a clue what some women do willingly to help make this the safest most wonderful country in the world for women and men and especially our children,and I include the Grandmothesr (and Grandfathers) who do what you do.All the while these foolish women think only of themselves and their pleasure .You can educate some women but you cannot make them smart or give them common sense or compassion.
