Skip to comments.‘Destroy the idols,’ Egyptian jihadist calls for removal of Sphinx, Pyramids
Posted on 11/12/2012 7:52:09 AM PST by Nachum
An Egyptian jihad leader, with self-professed links to the Taliban, called for the destruction of the Sphinx and the Giza Pyramids in Egypt, drawing ties between the Egyptian relics and Buddha statues, local media reported this week.
Murgan Salem al-Gohary, an Islamist leader twice-sentenced under former President Hosni Mubarak for advocating violence, called on Muslims to remove such idols.
All Muslims are charged with applying the teachings of Islam to remove such idols, as we did in Afghanistan when we destroyed the Buddha statues, he said on Saturday during a television interview on an Egyptian private channel, widely watched by Egyptian and Arab audiences.
God ordered Prophet Mohammed to destroy idols, he added. When I was with the Taliban we destroyed the statue of Buddha, something the government failed to do.
His comments came a day after thousands of ultraconservative Islamists gathered in Tahrir Square to call for the strict application of Sharia law in the new constitution.
But in retaliation to Goharys remarks, the vice president of Tunisias Ennahda party, Sheikh Abdel Fattah Moro, called the live program and told Gohary that famous historic military commander Amr ibn al-Aas did not destroy statues when he conquered Egypt.

Boy, that Arab Spring is the gift that just keeps on giving.
Heckuva job, Obama. Heck of a job.
I’m surprised this hasn’t already happened
Eventually they will have the cave paintings in France removed too, along with the Colosseum, and eventually Mt Rushmore.
The Sphynx won’t be too hard but the pyramids might present a bit of a challenge.
Yep. And all the mummies and stuff in the museums.
The only reason most of these antiquities survived the Caliphate in Egypt is that they were hidden beneath the sand while the Muzzies were in charge.
Thank you, Barack Hussein Obama!
I say Go For It.
let the world again see Islam in action.
Go ahead and destroy your most valuable resource.
Sink back to the 7the century hell holes you came from.
Good luck removing the Pyramids!
Maybe the Israelis will help by removing the blasphemous Aswan dam. It’s against Allah!
Well..guess there goes the tourist business!
Ahhhh..the rise of the great Mooslim religion and culture.
This is why the British Museum should never send back the stuff they took out of Egypt in the 19th century.
Ain’t “tolerance” wonderful? After finishing your list, they’ll move on to the Louvre, the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, the British Museum, the National Gallery, the Vatican, the Hermitage, etc. By then, they’ll have concluded the Interstate Highway System is an “idol” to freedom and destroy it followed by airports and airplanes. Oh, wait...
“Islamderthals” describes them perfectly.
elect klinton, lose the towers, elect(?) Oboohooo lose the pyramids.
Amr ibn al-Aas (c. 592 January 6, 682) did not destroy statues when he conquered Egypt.
He didn’t have the means but I bet he had the will.
Nuke the Aswan High Dam!
And “drone” any wrecking crews sent to destroy the Pyramids!
To h*** with Islam!
How Islamand the ever-present threat it poses to humanitycould be brought to an end in one, simple step.
“Boy, that Arab Spring is the gift that just keeps on giving.”
Now that Obama has enabled “Arab Spring” and used our military to aid the jihadists, he’ll step back and pretend he’s a mere observer.
Most folks don’t have a clue that what we did was install radical Islam in four or five countries. And where is Hillary? Where is Huma? What’s Jarrett up to?
What’s next? Well, Syria and Turkey will be involved, and I expect movement in the Philippines soon too.
These people are as stupid as democrats.
What is it about these Leftist and Moslem totalitarian types that they want to kill the goose that lays the golden eggs?
Nuke the Aswan High Dam!
And “drone” any wrecking crews sent to destroy the Pyramids!
To h*** with Islam! To h*** with its demon moon god & all his followers!
** but the pyramids might present a bit of a challenge.***
This was tried a couple of hundred years ago. After a few dozen stones were removed they gave up.
There’s a big rock in Mecca we should be happy to bunker-bust.
Oh, I forgot—our president is not, I repeat, not a moo-slime.
They could use those EZ movers they have on TV.
Come to think of it, that’s probably how they built them in the first place.
“...president is not, I repeat, not a moo-slime.”
But moo-slime lives with him in the White Hut...
Without its antiquities, few tourists would want to visit Egypt. It would just be an oversized sandbox, like Libya. I guess they don’t want our Yankee dollars after all.
The last time they took charge Alexandria had a Great Library, the Sphinx had a nose and the Pyramids had smooth sides.

I just want to see the explosion!
When it comes to power in Britain, Islam will destroy those too.
America is being destroyed, why not Egypt? WTF. The whold world is next with no America and it’s allies to prevent it. Maybe Russia or China may step in and save Earth. What a joke.
I read a fictional novel back in the 90’s that I can’t even remember the name of, but the storyline was remarkably similar to how things are unfolding now. Egypt is taken over by hardline islamists, who then go about destroying the great pyramids, while the US government is completely infiltrated by islamists. The similarities are just too weird. It was just a pot-boiler novel I read out of boredom, but the name escapes me. The storyline involved an archeologist and his love interest, whose father was a bigwig in the egyptian antiquities business in Cairo. Perhaps someone else remembers it.
Not with the Islamic bomb of peace. sarc/ Or they may just use the Coptic Christians as slaves to deconstruct history.
Not the Colosseum. So many Christians were martyred there that it is surely a festival site in Islam. It will be restored and put back into service.
But didn’t he burn down the library at Alexandrea?
These moozlums have such a wonderful, tolerant, embracing culture. NOT! Boom, slash, smash! They want to kill you and your family...especially if your head is shaped like a pyramid.
Wow, that was a real slam on the Muzzies.
The policy of destruction of idols is traditional, Quran based, obedience to Allah. A faithful, practicing Muslim should support, aid and abet the demolition of the Pyramids.
Mr. Rushmore comes a little later, though I think the Statue of Liberty(they see it as ‘License’) and the Lincoln Memorial would come first.
Yup, let ‘em go for it. Then there will be absolutely no reason for anyone to visit Egypt...ever.
Is it not NASA’s mission to stop them?
Remove all business and defense from the middle east. Cordon them off by air, by sea, by land. Sit back and watch them annihilate one another. Pass the popcorn until they are finished, then go in and pump them dry.
Obama continues to destroy the planet while his Democratic drones cheer! How is that recovery in New York going Obama drones ?
They will be inviting the divinge wrath of the Anunnaki (Nephilim) who built them for several good reasons. The white stuff that used to cover the Great Pyramid was used as a mirror to reflect the sun and served as a flashlight, a beacon of sorts, to space travelers. Also served as a marker in a flight path for landing craft. Also served as a long term clock which does not have to be wound up, and lasting virtually forever with no maintenance or correction.
It was also used as a prison for wayward demigods. Marduk, son of Enki. Marduk usurped kingship, claiming that his moon calendar was more accurate than the sun calendar, which was commonly and traditionally used to mark off the centuries between the changing of the guard. He eventually won the dispute after turning the Sinai into glass chips. The ruling council decided to let him rule for the same reason the Republicans have allowed Obama to usurp the throne.
What goes around, comes around.
The best response to this thug would be to declare any attempt to destroy such artifacts as a “crime against humanity”, for which the perpetrators could be imprisoned for life.
divinge=divine, or course.
Didn’t they move London Bridge to Arizona?
These would make a great display in the new BaraqqiWorld amusement park in Hawaii.
Alexandria has a sizable library today, and you can search its catalog here, but it might not have a lot of what you're looking for. I found no books by Whittaker Chambers, but Irving Babbitt, Frank Meyer and Russell Kirk have somehow made into the Alexandrian Library.
The cancer needs chemo
Destroy the large black space rock debris in Mecca first as it is also an idol that they pay homage to by making a pilgrimage.
“...the pyramids might present a bit of a challenge.”
Artillery has been used to destroy stone structures for hundreds and hundreds of years.
Cave paintings...bah!...when the Muslims are the majority in France, they'll demolish the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe, and the cathedral at Chartres. Why stop at just a few cave paintings when there's so much more to destroy?
