Idolatry’s not allowed in sand-land. Remember the Taliban turning a howitzer loose on a couple of huge Buddha statues hewn in the side of a mountain in Afghanistan?. The statues had weathered multiple millennia in stoic dignity until they met the “the religion of peace” boys, the Taliban. Idolatry incidentally, is not allowed in Islam.
“The Muslim Brotherhood, during it’s brief stint on poop deck of the S.S. Egypt, spawned rumors they were working up plans to level the pyramids!
ISIS, not to be topped in the “we’re the most fundamental of all!” position, has pledged to “ruin” the Kaaba. The Kaaba, a large boulder that sits in Mecca, is a point of pilgrimage for Muslims. Reputedly, it is the rock at which Big Mo prayed. It is the most holy of holy’s for the average Muslim. BUT! Yes there is a but. The very existence of the Kaaba as a relic begs the debate over Idolatry in Islam. So, after ruining Iraq, ISIS plans on buying some jackhammers and ending the debate.
