Syria: 11th-century minaret of Great Umayyad Mosque of Aleppo destroyed

Why should we care? Why is the western media so eager to tell us that a temple of Satan was blown up? I don’t recall the same urgency when churches are bombed in the ME.

Ashes to ashes, dust to dust:

The 11th-century minaret of the Great Umayyad Mosque of Aleppo, one of the world’s oldest and most important, (“important” to whom?)  has been destroyed by shellfire as the Syrian war consumes the country’s vast repository of historic sites.

The opposition Syrian National Coalition described the targeting of the minaret as “an indelible disgrace”.
“The deliberate destruction of this minaret, under whose shadow Saladin, Seif al-Dawla al-Hamdani and Abu Tayeb Abdel Rahman al-Mutanabbi rested, is a crime against human civilisation,” its statement said, naming the celebrated Crusade-era Muslim leader, the most celebrate Emir of Aleppo, and a tenth Century poet.

Please note again the mindset of the Islamic supremacist:

“a crime against human civilisation” means only what’s Islamic is civilisation and only Muslims are considered human.

  1. Funny how nobody gives a rat’s patootie about all of the Orthodox Christian churches, monasteries, and cemeteries destroyed by Albanian Muslims in Kosovo.
