Radical Islamists ransacked the national museum last week destroying 99% of the pre-Islamic exhibits that dated back to the 6th Century.
CBS News reported, via Religion of Peace:

The Maldives’ national museum reopened Tuesday without some of its most valuable exhibits a week after a mob of suspected religious extremists smashed images from the pre-Islamic era of this Indian Ocean archipelago.

About 35 exhibits — mostly images of Buddha and Hindu gods — were destroyed in the attack. Some of the artifacts dated back to the sixth century, museum director Ali Waheed said.

Waheed says 99 percent of the Maldives’ pre-Islamic artifacts from before the 12th century, when most inhabitants were Buddhists or Hindus, were destroyed.

“Some of the pieces can be put together but mostly they are made of sandstone, coral and limestone, and they are reduced to powder,” he said.

The mob of suspected Muslim extremists attacked the museum during the Maldives’ unfolding political crisis. The country has seen weeks of protests and last week President Mohamed Nasheed stepped down. He later said he was forced to resign at gunpoint.

The attack was the latest blow to the island nation that is best known as a high-end tourist destination.

“We are very sad. This is the physical and archaeological evidence of the country, we have nothing to show (of the pre-Islamic history),” Waheed said.

  1. Think about what Islamists are going to do to Egypt, Jordan and other places once they start implementing Sharia Law.

  2. bye-bye pyramids.

    Muslims tried in the past to destroy the pyramids without success, unless you consider stripping the casing stones to build Cairo mosques a success, but didn’t have the high explosives then that we have now.

  4. So the pyramids are safe. Yippeee…there’s only 10,000 other priceless artifacts of WORLD (not “Egyptian”–the stupid Egyptians have no universal claim on that world heritage) that the muslim sewer filth are bound to turn their twisted demented sights on, sooner or later.

    Those “false gods” (afterall, the one true and only god is the child molesting pedophile–and closet pig screwer–Mohammad) are an afront and need to be destroyed by anyone who calls himself a good genocidal fanatical follower of the Koran.

    Just wait for it. It’s only a matter of time before the Muslim Brotherhood-of-scum gets an epiphany that the first step to setting Egypt on the right path is “cleansing the past.”

    Better see it while you can.

  5. This is incredibly common with the Muzzies. They have a habit of destroying history and then inventing a new one. Give them another 20 years and they’ll be telling their kids that Muslims ALWAYS lived in Britain, and the Christians took it away from them; so now they’re taking it back.

  6. It still would be hard to worry. When back in “good times” climate change was more important issue for the Island of Maldives that they had a underwater meeting to say they they will all be underwater in the future. They where partially right but instead of water it is blood and the sword of Islam.

  7. What a sad loss to humanity… My only thought is .. When all else fails.. “FATHER FORGIVE THEM
    FOR THEY KNOW NOT WHAT THEY DO” and leave this dastardly deed in the hands of the higher power. Maybe there is a reason I don’t yet comprehend, why the ancient calendars end in 2012. ~sigh~ LORD help us…

  8. Remember when the Taliban dynamited the Buddhas carved into the cliffs in Afghanistan? Such reductio-ad-absurdum intolerance, to persecute the cultures of those centuries dead.

  9. 50% of the Maldive “youth” is unemployable and addicted to heroine while Islamism is on the rise.

    Welcome to paradise.

  10. Well, Muslims venerate the black rock in Mecca. Every infidel must bring about the day that rock is reduced to powder.

  11. eradicating the past and starting over, right out of the marxist handbook.

  12. It’s all the middle eastern countries that the Maldivian troops occupy that has caused this outrage.

  13. The Maldives are sinking, water is taking over the islands according to the global warming believers.

    Maybe we should see it as a blessing in this case? :-)

  14. Oliver Stone’s son unavailable for comment…

  15. Why keep providing cover by using words like “extremists” and “radicals” to describe the evil of these people? The label “Mohammedans” or “muslims” is all that is needed to understand their mental derangement. Trying to declare all the other hundreds of millions of followers of this satanic belief system as somehow normal, rational, decent humans is a lie, a damnable lie. They are all guilty as sin, and deserve God’s perfect justice for their abominations.

  16. I can’t even read stories like this. Destroying a people’s heritage is like taking their soul. Not to mention all the lives they are taking.

  17. I’d like to hear what Ali Stone, Oliver’s newly converted son to Islam would say about this. Ali believes that his new found religion is the only that inspires peace and equality. I don’t think destroying pre-Islam relics from the Buddhist and Hindu cultures promotes a feeling of equality.
