UN Watch, an independent Geneva-based monitoring group, has sent a letter to UNESCO, calling on the international body to take immediate action to stop Hamas from bulldozing of a 3000-year-old Gaza harbor for use as a terrorist training camp.

The partial destruction of the ancient Anthedon Harbor—which includes the ruins of a Roman temple and archaeological remains from the Persian, Hellenistic, Roman and Byzantine eras—follows its nomination as a World Heritage site.

I can’t say what I think is the remedy for Islamic aggression.

There is no such thing as “World Heritage”

Islamic supremacists blew up ancient buddhist statues in 2001 because they were an offense to Islam. It is a supremacist ideology. It needs to be cast off on the dustbin of history along with Nazism, Communism, and the KKK.

I beg to differ ...

World artifacts are world history is world heritage.

If the islamists continue to destroy historical sites, we'll have only pictures to prove to our kids, "See? This is what the Great Pyramid used to look like .. "

United Nations “World Heritage Sites” are merely a shoehorn for wedging globalism past the protective barriers of sovereignty.

Oh .. I wasn't thinking about the UN "heritage site" definition.

In THAT context .. yeah .. you're right.

To Islamic thinking, everything before Mohammad is irrevelant. And anything AFTER Mohammad which is “un-Islamic” is irrelevant.

They are maniacs, followed a mad prophet with a sun baked brain and a philosophy of hatred and violence.

I’d like to see them try to destroy the pyramids. It’ll give them something to do, and they’ll never get the job done.

Nice pick up.

I would name it after the congresswoman who was riding the ships toward the harbor to deliver weapons to the pallies. Sorry forgot her name.

Although House of Pancakes is hard to beat (down).

It’s what they do. You can’t stop it with a letter or a stern talking to.
