Islamists stormed the the Madives’ National Museum and destroyed the entire collection of 12th Century Buddhist relics.
It looked like an orderly transition.

The AFP reported, via Weasel Zippers:

At the Maldives’ National Museum, smashed Buddhist statues are testament to the rise of Islamic extremism and Taliban-style intolerance in a country famous as a laid-back holiday destination.

On Tuesday, as protesters backed by mutinous police toppled president Mohamed Nasheed, a handful of men stormed the Chinese-built museum and destroyed its display of priceless artifacts from the nation’s pre-Islamic era.

“They have effectively erased all evidence of our Buddhist past,” a senior museum official told AFP at the now shuttered building in the capital Male, asking not to be named out of fear for his own safety.

“We lost all our 12th century statues. They were made of coral stone and limestone. They are very brittle and there is no way we can restore them,” he explained.

“I wept when I heard that the entire display had gone. We are good Muslims and we treated these statues only as part of our heritage. It is not against Islam to display these exhibits,” he said.

Five people have since been arrested after they returned the following day to smash the CCTV cameras, he said.

  1. Thanks to Imam Obama this will be coming to a neighborhood near you soon!

  2. The Taliban dynamiting Buddha statues, Islamists destroying non-Islamic historical relics in the Maldives. Sounds so much like the Progressives wanting to rewrite history to suit their agenda.

  3. Yes, the “religion of peace” strikes again.

  4. Coming soon to an Egypt near you. Man those guys are totally screwed, good thing they aggressively collected every last Egyptian artifact back in their country so the Muslims can erase every last physical piece of evidence of Egypt’s non Islamic past. I bet Zahi Hawass is contemplating suicide right now. If he has half a brain he’s reburying the stuff so deep it will take centuries to find it again.

  5. Visit the Louvre before the muslim trash in france take over. They will burn and destroy everything in the museum. Right after they destroy egypt’s pharoic treasures.

    That’s what happens when one lets muslim dogs run wild under the guise of multi-culturalism.

    That’s what happens when elitists equate a muslim/arab culture of screwing camels and young boys with western culture and art. Of course, many western elitists screw young boys, too.

  6. I’m sure there will be a lot of talk about how stupid this was but that is all that will happen; talk. Now imagine if this we some Islamist artifacts which were trashed, there would be more than talk. I’ll bet heads would roll, literally. When are people going to figure this out, the only thing these Islamist understand is to react the same way that they would. They see the talk about it as a weakness and a green light to continue to keep up their terror.

  7. The Maldivian GDP per capita is less than US$2500 and 30% of that is directly obtained through tourism. Ninety percent of the Maldives government’s revenue comes from tourism taxes. Islamism is imminently going to make the Maldives a very wretched place.

  8. Has anyone else noticed, but when a person is laying flat on their back with blood seeping from their face…they don’t tend to riot so vigorously? Why is that? Hmmm…perhaps the unions really do have a way to address certain conflicts that works.

  9. Everything that doesn’t relate to islam is not valid to a muslim. That’s why muslims can kill non-muslims so easily. They don’t have the capacity to behave humanely to infidels.

  10. What will they replace history with? Their hundreds of Nobel Prize winners?

    Someone who beheaded, raped, stole and killed?

    I guess they’ll claim all past genius came from Islam; Look how much progress they’re achieving now. /s

  11. And in the passage of time, muslims can claim that there’s absolutely NO EVIDENCE WHATSOEVER that the Maldives weren’t always islamic. Anybody who claims otherwise will be beheaded for speaking outrageous lies about islam and islamic history!

  12. So much for Paradise. And I had hoped to one day go there to see this with my own eyes instead of just gazing at the photo.

  13. Hey remember, once upon a time, there were 2 towers in NYC, at a location near where there is a huge mosque coming up ……

  14. No wonder so many people are racing to convert to Islam. Who can possibly argue the universal egalitarian appeal of this religion?

    I just might sign up myself someday.

  15. islam is the religion of peace, i know the Star-Ledger told me so.

  16. Already there are reports of the UN putting together plans to take steps to safeguard the massive amounts of relics throughout Egypt.

    Think the Muslim Brotherhood and the muslim filth won’t turn their rage on those heretical monuments to Gods other than that pedophile false prophet Mohammad?

    ALL the artifacts of ancient Egypt are odes to Gods other than the child molester Mohamad–since Pharohs regarded THEMSELVES as Gods.

    But, Egypt’s ancient past doesn’t belong to Egypt. And those gutter trash Muslim stains have no rights to do sweet jack sh*t to any of it. But, that will hardly matter.

    Tick tock…just wait for it. The muslim vermin will eventually demand it be destroyed (I mean honestly, did Khufu pay hommage to Mohommad even ONCE??? I don’t think he did. Putting Rah above the child lover Mohammad? Hell, in their diseased, twisted minds, that’s more than enough reason to nuke the Pyramids.

  17. Sometimes i wish we had further developed our neutron bomb technology which killed the enemy and left the infrastructure intact. I’ll trade a Buddha statue for 10K dead Islamofascists any day of the week.

  18. …reports of the UN putting together plans to take steps to safeguard the massive amounts of relics throughout Egypt.

    Please.

    The only step the UN is going to take is issue stern warnings or admonishments that the Islamists on the ground in Egypt are going to ignore.

  19. DAMN IT, HERE WE GO AGAIN!!!! WANT TO KNOW WHY WE’RE NOT A THOUSAND YEARS AHEAD SCIENTIFICALLY THAN WE ARE NOW?? IT’S BECAUSE THESE ROTTEN FILTHY MUSLIMS BURNED THE LIBRARY AT ALEXANDRIA IN 700 A.D. (and not the New World Order “BCE”, “Before the Common Era” crap!!!).

    IF WE EVER EXPECT OUR CHILDREN’S GENERATIONS AND GENERATIONS BEYOND TO HAVE ANY KIND OF TECHNOLOGICAL FUTURE, THEN WE HAD BETTER RETURN WITH EXTREME PREDUDIOUS THE FAVOR ON MUSLIMS AND GO AND DESTROY SOME BIG MOSQUE SOMEWHERE AND SEE HOW THEY LIKE IT TO HAVE VALUABLE HISTORY DESTROYED BY PEOPLE WHO IT DIDN’T BELONG TO!!!! AND WARN THEM THAT IF THEIR DESTRUCTIVE TENDENCIES ARE TURNED TOWARDS ANYONE ELSE’S OTHER THAN THEIR OWN, WE’RE HEADING TO MECCAH!!!!!
