Sad. Mali is a beautiful country. Hate to see what is happening there.

If I could push one button to obliterate that entire group of subhuman, murderous filth, I’d do it.

“The other significant 5th-century event in Britain was the arrival of the Anglo-Saxons.”

That was a critical point in Britain’s history, and left a much deeper impression on the island (most specifically the English language itself - spoken much more widely than Italian). Immediately prior to the Norman invasion, the Saxon king Harold had just defeated a Viking invasion and had to double-time to meet the Normans; accounts of the battle of Hastings, in which Harold was killed, indicate a battle the Normans very nearly lost. The Saxons snatched defeat from the jaws of victory by breaking their shield wall (which had held for the duration of the battle) and charging. A special Norman unit was then able to kill Harold, and rather than be driven back to Normandy for lack of supplies the Norman forces were able to win the day.

These were hardly barbarian invasions; William was familiar with Harold and thought he was the rightful heir to Harold’s throne (they had made some agreement years earlier).

my personal suspicion... it will be done by a hot head dot head. some day, some hindu is going to conclude the assault by muslims is TOO MUCH, and will pursue what he feels to be the karmic equivalent of the 72 muslim virgins. and a muslim holy site will get completely wiped out.

India's capital is currently in their third day of riots over Muslim gang-rapists.

Ah, the cosmopolitan Mohammedan pigs strike again—part of their never-ending quest to bring back the 7th century.

I had heard that this was going on.

When are people going to say enough is enough?

Just to dwell on this fact: these are monuments to Islamic culture. Not French, not Christian, not pagan, not Buddhist, not Marxist: ISLAMIC culture.

Desecration of a grave is a heinous sin in Islam.

Sidi Mahmoud Ben Amar (also known as Sidi Amar, Cadi Sidi Mahmoud, or Sidi Mahmoud) is a revered Muslim scholar who is one of the 333 Sufi saints said to be buried in Timbuktu. The tomb of Sidi Mahmoud Ben Amar is among 16 cemeteries and mausolea that are a part of Timbuktu, which is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

These people have gone insane.
