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.

    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.

    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.

    yes, there are numerous Muslims who do not want to see the US
    Constitution fail in the separation of State & Mosque.. however, not
    only is Sharia in US courts a reality nightmare.. but our supposed
    Constitutional protectors all over this land are taking US down faster
    than the IslaMarxists are, oh wait.. they’ve already been positioned
    throughout all of our governmental institutions, not to mention those
    occupying the Oval Office.. *sigh*

    “Is just the will of Allah” This actually not so bad “WGARA” Let these throwbacks destroy every historical site on their path of mayhem to overtake the Middle East & Africa (from Egypt to Mali, etc) That will definitely put a STOP to the tourist dollars.

    Let them drown in their own vomit. Why should Freedom Loving Westerners be concern.

    The only way to produce ” ‘moderate’ Islam” (If there is such a thing which is doubtful) in countries like Egypt, Iran, Libya, Syria, etc is to wholly separate Islamic societies from the West and allow a “tsunami of violence” to overtake the people living under those “Islamic regimes” Let them butcher each other like overpopulated gutter rats.

    Instead of importing islamic parasites to our western societies, we should be more concern about taking in the Christians, Buddhist and others that are been persecuted and murdered by these medieval thugs.

    Solution: REMOVE “Vote out” THE ISLAMIC MARXIST THUGS FROM THE W.H.

    The Blind Shiek will be pardoned on Obama’s way out…Infact…. He should have been pardoned on Thursday along with Jerry Sandusky to complete the anal raping of America……..The Koran has an important prophesy about the blind Dajjal appearing before the 12th Imam and Shiek Omar is blind in his right eye…….If he is released , and he is the Dajjal….the prophesy states he will return and lead an army of 70,000 to attack the returned Nazarene baby ….> http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Masih_ad-Dajjal

    I think a pardoning of the blind Shiek and Jerry Sandusky should of happened on the same day the Stolen Valor Act and was struck down and Obamacare ruled constitutional by the Supreme court…. just to be perfectly clear you all get the message from the Dear Leader…maybe an end of the day cannibal ritual beheadding on the DC mall to finish it off.

    allow me to narrow it down and clarify..

    re: [Why should Freedom Loving Westerners be concern.]

    they are here, they’re all over the map, their plan was to infiltrate and
    conquer from within, just as the communists of old did (McCarthy was
    right
    ), only these barbarians are not only joined with Marxists (by any
    other name) at the hip, but enabling them.. (also not to mention their
    weathermen & black panther buds.. shhh!! Farrakhan gets jealous)..

    the rest, i agree with, however, the bigger the infestation in the ME,
    the more dangerous for the resyt of US & the West.. they have baby
    machines, we have baby killers.. 🙁

    Good on’em! It takes a liberal mentality to marry your first cousin and produce two headed children. I say destroy everything! Perhaps we could persuade the Spanish to start another Inquisition on behalf of Catholics. And talk to Angela about another Reformation in Germany. Man, we could all have so much fun killing and maiming each other. Isn’t God just the greatest concept since peanut butter went into jars? Get this, here’s the best part, there is absolutely no proof whatsoever that this mythical creature exists yet humans run around like listening to the voices in some dumba@@e’s head is perfectly normal. What a freaking joke! I mean, I wish I had thought to patent stupidity before all the rest of Islam decided to devote themselves to it’s complete fruition! I could be like, uh, mmmm, George Clueless raising money for Obama! Oh well, maybe in the next life.

    “threatened by the armed conflict in the region”

    How disingenuous. The threat to Timbuktu, and the whole world, is a bunch of Devil workshipping savages – the mooslimes.
