Islamic jihadists want to destroy the artifacts of non-Muslim civilizations, because doing so testifies to the truth of Islam, as the Quran suggests that the destroyed remnants of ancient non-Muslim civilizations are a sign of Allahs punishment of those who rejected his truth:

When are they going to tear down the Egyptian pyramids?
Muslim Taliban in Afghanistan destroyed 2,000 year old Buddhists statues - a few years ago.
Like lefties destroy US Civil War statues - and for the same reason.
That said, there is a hatred of Christ there, just like any other part of the world that persecutes him, from the DPRK to almost every single Muslim nation on the planet.
Well, then - I suggest we get cracking!
IIRC, the Russian “Tsar Bomb” was originally designed to be 100MT, but the Russians decided to dial it back to 50MT.

Yeah ... in a rare fit of sanity, they made the casing out of lead instead of uranium, thereby reducing the yield by half.
