Islamic Clerics Call on Egypt to Destroy Great Pyramids

They’re offensive.

Islamic Spring.
Several Islamic clerics called on Muslim Brotherhood President Mohammad Morsi to destroy the great pyramids and finish the work of Mohammad companion Sahabi Amr bin al-As.
AINA reported:

According to several reports in the Arabic media, prominent Muslim clerics have begun to call for the demolition of Egypt’s Great Pyramids–or, in the words of Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi’i, those “symbols of paganism,” which Egypt’s Salafi party has long planned to cover with wax. Most recently, Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs” and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt’s new president, Muhammad Morsi, to “destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what the Sahabi Amr bin al-As could not.”

This is a reference to the Muslim Prophet Muhammad’s companion, Amr bin al-As and his Arabian tribesmen, who invaded and conquered Egypt circa 641. Under al-As and subsequent Muslim rule, many Egyptian antiquities were destroyed as relics of infidelity. While most Western academics argue otherwise, according to early Muslim writers, the great Library of Alexandria itself–deemed a repository of pagan knowledge contradicting the Koran–was destroyed under bin al-As’s reign and in compliance with Caliph Omar’s command.

However, while book-burning was an easy activity in the 7th century, destroying the mountain-like pyramids and their guardian Sphinx was not–even if Egypt’s Medieval Mamluk rulers “de-nosed” the latter during target practice (though popular legend still attributes it to a Westerner, Napoleon).

Now, however, as Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sheikhs” observes, and thanks to modern technology, the pyramids can be destroyed. The only question left is whether the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt is “pious” enough–if he is willing to complete the Islamization process that started under the hands of Egypt’s first Islamic conqueror.

Nor is such a course of action implausible. History is laden with examples of Muslims destroying their own pre-Islamic heritage–starting with Islam’s prophet Muhammad himself, who destroyed Arabia’s Ka’ba temple, transforming it into a mosque.

In December the Salafist Party in Egypt, which just won 20 percent of the vote, wanted to cover the “idolatrous” Giza pyramids with wax.
Now they want to blow them up.

    One thing is consistent with these people, they enjoy tearing down things others have built.

    This berserk religion destroyed the great library at Alexandria as well.

    Islam is a cult of death and destruction.

    At one point do we analyze the immaturity inherent with these “leaders?” Honesly, how immature is it to want to wipe out historical sites? I’m thinking an emotional mental capacity of maybe eight to ten years old.

  • Taqiyyotomist

    I think I called this 2 1/2 years ago.

    Save your pictures of ancient Egypt, folks. Because soon that’s all that will be left of it.

  • Buffalobob

    The Religion of peace has been infiltrated with environmental activists. There must be some species of endangered fish that the pyramids are obstructing.

  • asdf

    Egypt will look like a sand ashtray by the time they finish with it.

  • PimpAllah

    I guess we’ll soon see Daryl Hannah, Eva Longoria, Morgan Freeman, Sean Penn and a plane loaded with bleeding heart lib-turds rush to Egypt to save the pyramids and prevent Allah from doing it’s Will

  • Truck Monkey

    Well at least the tourists will still have the sweltering slums of Cairo to visit should the pyramids get blowed up.

  • dan

    the destroyed the buddhas of bamiyan.

    and the wtc.

    there is no horror they won’t commit.

    they are only limited by their means.

    they will wipe us out if we don’t wipe them out first.

  • Granny

    This has been in the works for a couple of years. No surprise there. Expect to see a good number of the worlds historical monuments disappearing in the name is “islam” over the coming years.

  • P. Aaron

    If the Islamists destroy the Pyramids, Egypt’s tourism…economy is over.

  • No Man

    I’m betting on the pyramids.

    The religion of pieces

    I continue to search for any reliable historical information that indicates what religion[S] the Tribes and other ethnic groups who populated the Middle East practiced: (a) before Christ, that is prior to 33 AD; and (b) after Christ and before Mohammed, that is between 33 AD and about 700 AD. Were they pagans. Jews, Christians or what?

    It seems that the answers might enlighten and even pacify some Islamists who act as if the Muslim faith has been predominant and trumps all other religions since the beginning of time.

    Dumb as rock “moderates” … wax in the desert?

    They won’t take them down, though. They’ll just turn them all into mosques and claim that they were built as mosques. After all, the koran claims that Joseph … and Jacob and Abraham and everyone else in the Bible were all muslims, anyway.

    “They’re offensive.”

    Because, as with the Twin Towers and the 757s, they cannot even begin to create such. But they’re sure good at destroying them.

    That’s their forte.

  • bigkahuna

    Im guessing tourism has already been hurt by Obama’s economy and this new gang of thugs who have taken over.

    Hey Egypt….. You get what you deserve for electing scum…Almost like the USA

  • Chris

    If only they would destroy themselves.

  • Barry S

    We could just nuke the whole region and make glass. Would that offend them?
