EBL: Al Qaeda and Islamists when they take control: The destruction of architectural treasures in Mali and elsewhere…

his Islamic war on the past was well documented in Afghanistan with the blowing up of the ancient Buddhas.

There is vandalism by Islamists in Morocco and Tunisia.

It is also occurring under the cover of civic improvement in Mecca and Medina, with Saudi Wahhabi tearing down century old Sufi buildings because they offended the current puritanism of Wahhabi tastes.  Saudi officials are even waging war on archeology. 

The West may be inadvertently helping spread the Wahhabi Winter in places like Syria.

Timbuktu is full of architectural treasures.  Now ignorant jihadi rebels under the direction of Al Qaeda are engaged in destroying mosques and mausoleums they disapprove of in Mali.  The Islamists are especially focused on attacking anything they deem involving idolatry, especially if it is Sufi related.   This destruction is being called a war crime.  

Let’s just call these Muslims what they are: barbarian savages.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

  1. Isn’t the world eerily like some gothic Seinfeld episode where all these separate but evil trends are heading towards some end of episode tragic resolution that ties each one of them together into a giant “we are so screwed” moment?

    European debt implosions.
    Arab springs turning into Arab winters.
    Japanese demographic implosions.
    Chinese ghost cities.
    US debt and deficit explosions.
    Obama tyrannical overreach on guns, spending, health care, class warfare, false racism and vaginas.
    Global Wormening worshipping.
    Candy Crowley.
    Alastair Crowley.

    What’s next, a Milli Vanilli reunion? A remake of Saturday Night Fever but Gangnam style? Bell bottoms? Cher? Moochelle in a miniskirt getting out of a Ferrari? New Coke?
