Armed Islamists Destroy Ancient Timbuktu Shrines With Axes

Islamists from the Ansar Dine group have reportedly destroyed several of the ancient shrines in Timbuktu.
Via France 24:


VOA
reported:

Armed Malian Islamists are destroying shrines and mausoleums in Timbuktu.

Witnesses told VOA Saturday that members of the Ansar Dine Islamist group are attacking the historic sites with axes and other instruments.

Witnesses say the mausoleum of a revered Muslim saint, Sidi Mahmoud, has been destroyed. Timbuktu has been listed by UNESCO as an endangered world heritage site.

UNESCO says Timbuktu was once an intellectual and spiritual capital, as well as a center for the propagation of Islam throughout Africa in the 15th and 16th centuries.

UNESCO said on its website Thursday that it had decided to place Timbuktu on its endangered list because its sites were “threatened by the armed conflict in the region.”

    Curious how the left doesn’t raise a voice over this intolerence. Especially the idiots with the “coexist” stickers on their car’s asses.

    NWO is operating a MAO agenda in Europe and for the world…. ” “Standing still is not an option,” Barroso told reporters Tuesday, discussing the plan. “A big leap forward is now necessary.”

    “UNESCO says Timbuktu was once an intellectual and spiritual capital, as well as a center for the propagation of Islam throughout Africa in the 15th and 16th centuries.”…. A dog returns to its vomit and bites the hand that fed it.

    Any particular reason why these guys are seemingly more than willing to take a dump in their own beds?

    Even if all you are is an atheist and you believe there’s not need to get things right with your Creator because there is no God. Well enough. If all you are then if you travel to Europe is a tourist. With Islam on the march there won’t be a Notre Dame, an Eiffel Tower, St. Peter’s, St Paul’s, et alia.

    Are you alarmed now?

    Unislamic, they say it like it’s a bad thing…

    …why don’t I feel any better about them destroying muslim artifacts than I did about the destruction of the Buddhas of Bamiyan?

    [Islamist-allied operatives appointed by Obama are undermining U.S. security policy – explains counter-Intelligence expert, Prof. Clare Lopez. Aimed at co-opting Americas foreign policy in the Middle East, a network including well-known American diplomats, congressional representatives, figures from academia and the think tank world – with ties to the clerical regime in Tehran – is directing the Obama Administration’s policy towards the Islamic Republic of Iran and the Middle East.]

    “UNESCO says Timbuktu was once an intellectual and spiritual capital, as well as a center for the propagation of Islam throughout Africa in the 15th and 16th centuries.”

    Well then,I guess Timbuktu is getting what it deserves for being a center of propagation of pislam throughout Africa for 2 centuries.
    We will soon be getting what we deserve too.

    Have the Islamists officially reinstated slavery yet? I guess they never really outlawed it in Mali to begin with.

    Well if you haven’t yet, you probably won’t.

    Islam will not level Notre Dame…They will retro fit a few stained glass windows into geometric designs, dismantle the altar , and run it as a mosque. The Louvre..that will be burned down .

    Ecosse stole my comment, curses…But in defense of Islam & GWBush, for that matter, not all Muslims like to kill & blow things up. The problem is trying to distinguish between the two & not give official sanction to unindicted co-conspirators to terrorist trials, CAIR, for example.
