I just hear over radio this news and I was stunned... I was sad, I was angry, I was hopeless... I hope this are only stories and mumbling of one lunatic...

I fear this scenario is just a matter of time. I regret saying this, but it will happen sooner or later and I fear it will happen during our own lifetime in the near future. I'd really love to to Egypt and witness it all before it's too late. Sad

"Al-Azhar releases fatwa forbidding the destruction of artefacts" (Al Tahrir News - TNN, March 6, 2015)

Quote:
"Egyptian Islamic institute Al-Azhar has released a fatwa on Friday forbidding the destruction of ancient artefacts after Islamic State raids on a Mosul museum and the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud.

Al-Azhar, which is considered the foremost authority of Sunni Islam, called the Islamic State’s actions a crime against humanity, given the global cultural value attached to these items. The institute dismissed Islamic State’s classification of the items as “idols”.

“These artefacts have important cultural and historical significance,” Al-Azhar said in an official statement. “They are an important part of our collective legacy that must not be harmed.”

Al-Azhar’s comments came shortly after Islamic State militants bulldozed the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud, destroying many of its artefacts.

The institute also condemned the Islamic State for its hypocrisy, given that the group refers to the artefacts as false idols while also profiting heavily from their sale on the black market.

Al-Azhar added that the violent and destructive actions perpetrated by this group do not represent Islam or any faith.

Al-Azhar also said that the destructive and aggressive nature of the group places an urgency on the Egyptian government and the international community to place a concise plan to end this threat."

Greetings, Lutz.

Thank's Lutz for this good news. I hope that this plan will work and that the Egyptians monuments will be protected at all costs. I still cannot believe that someone would like to destroy such precious heritage of our ancestors.

I'm concerned for all ancient monuments that could fall under destructive control of these baboons. Egyptians or not.

However, to me, the most important are studies of them and survey reports. They keep memory of these monuments. Many early surveys report things that no longer exist now because either lost or fallen to erosion.

Of course, meaningless and hypocritical destruction such as this, is utterly unwarranted.

Isis does as they want and care nothing about other cultures history. I would have military protection including anti missile and aircraft capability. 24/7/365 protection is needed. I know that this is impossible but I would go for coverage of major sights then maximum area coverage of lesser sights. And all units would be weapons free. Expensive yes but if Egypt was to loose its ancient monuments the damage to tourism dollars would devastate the economy.

I almost cried with the news about Mosul and Nineveh. I pray it never happens in Egypt, but it is oh so close to happening.

I think it now better to keep the Nefertiti bust in Berlin.
