The “Symbols of Paganism” Must Be Destroyed. Obama say “respect it”……
Thanks to Vlad Tepes
According to several reports in the Arabic media, prominent Muslim clerics have begun to call for the demolition of Egypt’s Great Pyramidsâ€”or, in the words of SaudiÂ Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi’i, those “symbols of paganism,” which Egypt’s Salafi party has long planned toÂ cover with wax. Most recently, Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs” and President of National Unity,Â Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt’s new president, Muhammad Morsi, to “destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what Amr bin al-As could not.”
Has the sun finally set for Egypt’s Great Pyramids?
This is a reference to the Muslim Prophet Muhammad’s companion, Amr bin al-As and his Arabian tribesmen, who invaded and conquered Egypt circa 641. Under al-As and subsequent Muslim rule, many Egyptian antiquities were destroyed as relics of infidelity. While most Western academics argue otherwise, according to early Muslim writers, the great Library of Alexandria itselfâ€”deemed a repository of pagan knowledge contradicting the Koranâ€”was destroyed under bin al-As’s reign and inÂ compliance with Caliph Omar’s command.
However, while book-burning was an easy activity in the 7thÂ century, destroying the mountain-like pyramids and their guardian Sphinx was notâ€”even if Egypt’s Medieval Mamluk rulers “de-nosed” the latter during target practice (though popular legend naturally attributes it to a Westerner, Napoleon).
Now, however, as Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sheikhs” observes, and thanks to modern technology, the pyramidsÂ canÂ be destroyed. The only question left is whether Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood president is “pious” enoughâ€”if he is willing to complete the Islamization process that started under the hands of Egypt’s first Islamic conqueror.
