The Golden Mosque



Something beautiful is dying.





If this is what marks the beginning of an all-out civil war, what destruction will mark its end?

Hard to believe no one saw this coming. Except of course nearly every expert on the history of the region.

Crimes against religions I can half understand, even if I can't condone. But crimes against beautiful architecture are simply unforgivable.
Sometimes you need a civil war. To bring about democracy, to end slavery, to share the cake more evenly. Sometimes you simply can't avoid one. The tsunami of history just comes rolling in, and the best efforts of the good just can't stop it. But there are plenty of ugly buildings to vent your anger on. In a world where we create so much ugliness, lets not destroy our beautiful creations.

Those extremist. They'll do anything to get Americans (or all foreigners for that matter) out of Iraq, even by destroying their own faith or their own brothers.

These are also the one that destroyed the magnificent buddhas!

Despite the best efforts of Western propaganda to portray Islam as a backward, archaic, UNILATERAL religion based on fanatical loyalty to UNILATERALLY accepted spiritual beliefs, it is SCHISMATIC, and lives in the present day.

Shi'ite-versus-Sunni is the furthest Western propaganda allows the spoonfed minds of its slaves to understand how SCHISMATIC Islam is.

When good Christian bashing occurs, Christians tend to close ranks and appear UNILATERAL. Foxe's Book of Martyrs is a good example, where extreme Christian sects, universally recognised as CULTS by today's "mainstream" churches, are listed among the victims of Rome's attempt to squelch the Reformation.

Of course, Foxe's book was the other side of this sort of false fraternal unity. Rome also grouped (and continues to group) any Christian sect which did not submit its full authority as heretic, and eventually Protestant.

It is easier to get your zombies to murder "the enemy" en masse if you don't see them as people, with ideas, opinions, beliefs, concerns, and all those human quirks which separate us from hyper-patriotic Americans.

The civil war isn't over the American invasion. It's over collusion with the invaders. Just as the famous footage of Dutch women shaved and beaten, sometimes shot were celebrated at the end of the last World War, so are retaliatory strikes agains those who collaborate with Satan bound to happen, and so are they bound to be celebrated.
