Ancient Egypt Could be Deleted

If Egypt falls to hardcore islamic supremacists, photos might be all the world may have left to remember the Egyptian pyramids and the Sphinx.

Reports show that there is a very strong likelihood that Egypt may soon be ruled by the islamic supremacist group known as the Muslim Brotherhood. The Muslim Brotherhood has been linked to Al Queda and the Taliban. It is a sad historic fact that when hardcore islamic supremacists take over a region, they have a nasty habit of destroying evidence of previously existing non-islamic cultures. Remember those ancient giant Buddhist statues that were carved into an Afghanistan mountainside? Yeah, all you have now are memories or pictures of them because they were deemed "unislamic" and destroyed.

As Egypt descends into Muslim Brotherhood backed chaos, looters have already broken into a Cairo museum and destroyed ancient treasures. Via Winds of Jihad:

Idols. Who needs them?
Egyptian looters broke into the Cairo museum that holds most of the King Tutankhamen collection and destroyed several artifacts.
From ABC :

Looters broke into the Egyptian Museum during anti-government protests late on Friday and destroyed two Pharaonic mummies, Egypt's top archaeologist told state television.
The museum in central Cairo, which has the world's biggest collection of Pharaonic antiquities, is adjacent to the headquarters of the ruling National Democratic Party that protesters had earlier set ablaze. Flames were seen still pouring out of the party headquarters early on Saturday.
"I felt deeply sorry today when I came this morning to the Egyptian Museum and found that some had tried to raid the museum by force last night," Zahi Hawass, chairman of the Supreme Council of Antiquities, said on Saturday.
"Egyptian citizens tried to prevent them and were joined by the tourism police, but some [looters] managed to enter from above and they destroyed two of the mummies," he said.
He added looters had also ransacked the ticket office.
Ancient Egyptian history has fascinated people around the world for generations. Of all the things to wreck up while rioting, how shameful that these people have such little respect for that which endured for thousands of years before them. It is sad to see people in a country with such a rich history be so eager to trash it.

If Egypt falls under the rule of hardcore islamic supremacists, there very well may be no more ancient Egyptian discoveries revealed, no more TV specials showing archeologists exploring tombs, no more insights into a culture that existed so long ago but still captures the imagination of so many people today. It would truly be a terrible loss for all of humanity.

This is beyond disgusting and unnecessary. The ROP that insists we respect them and speak no evil of them, seems incapable of respecting anyone or anything outside their religion and definitely speaks evil of us !

It`s a shame we can`t simply "delete" them before they delete some of the world`s most important and interesting history !

These people need to get a life apart from militantism !

How can people not respect the history of their own damned country? Egypt's antiquities are what brings the tourist dollars from around the world - talk about biting the hand that feeds you!

SignPainterGuy said...

Is this, "Biting off you nose to spite your face ?"

Keep in mind, Ack-my-dinner-jacket and many other (maybe even most ?) muslims WANT to hurry along the return of the 12th imam and the Battle of Armegeddon ! Considering the ramifications of their destructive nature - the loss of historic artifacts - Pfffffft - what do they care when something so much MORE IMPORTANT is at stake ?!

AND, there`s some evidence that our own "wonderful" gov. has been helping to stir up this revolt and invasion to change the regime in Egypt ! It will likely get a lot uglier before it improves at all !

This is a terrible situation Zilla. Egypt is 90% Sunni. I see no hope for them one way or the other. I've obviously been reading too much today.

Proof said...

Losing one's cultural history is a terrible thing. Losing freedom is even worse. Radical Islam must be opposed.

You Suck Egypt said...

Quick steal the stuff and put it in Paris....

Barry lifted a Bush era ban on a leader of the Muslim brotherhood and has indeed been covertly supporting the chaos in Egypt. Barry betrays the entire world in support of his muslim brothers. He is worse than Carter and far more dangerous.

Zilla of the Resistance said...

I've been reading a lot too, not a whole lot to be optimistic about. My heart breaks for all of the nice normal people in Egypt who are in danger as they watch their country explode itself.

Paris is no good, the French have ceded large swaths of Paris to islamic supremacists, allowing entire streets to be blocked off to non-muslims and there are whole areas of the city which are "no go" zones for those who are not islamic.

Randy G said...

Egypt first, who is next? Iran has tentacles far reaching.......Thank you idiot Carter.

Zilla of the Resistance said...

Jordan is near the top of the list for who could be next.

Quite Rightly said...

Excellent point, Zilla.

Here's something I've been thinking about: Interestingly, the language of ancient Egypt is preserved in the liturgy of Coptic Christians. (Arabic was brought in during the Muslim conquest of Egypt.) Because Coptic Christians have not, as a rule, intermarried with Muslims in Egypt, the Coptic Christians also preserved ancient Egyptian DNA. If you want to know what ancient Egyptians looked like, your best bet is to look at the faces of Coptic Christians.

As recent events have amply demonstrated, Coptic Christians already are on the endangered list.

Zilla of the Resistance said...

Hi, QR! I did a followup post to this one in which I found an article about the Copts, and the theme of the article is how the world seems to have forgotten them. They've already suffered so much, but if hardcore islamists take over, this could be the end of them and that would be a terrible loss for our world heritage in addition to a tragedy for humanity.

That bozo Zahi Hawass would personally sacrifice himself to prevent that, provided there was a Nat Geo film crew on scene to photograph him.
