A few months ago I had a question.
How much TNT does it take to blow up a pyramid?
and a wish
I just hope they put the explosion of the pyramids and Sphinx on youtube.
Since the Egyptians put everything on youtube (warning, unsafe, Daily Beast/folks who like the Twat and He Who Shall Not Be Linked or Named link, you can find better youtube vids just going there)
YouTube video has been a reliable source of news and images from Egypt. Here’s a look at some amazing moments caught live.
Well, it appears we’ll find out the answer to my question and I’ll get my wish.
Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs” and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt’s new president, Muhammad Morsi, to “destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what the Sahabi Amr bin al-As could not.”
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.
You know they’ll put it on Youtube.
How otherwise from people who demand they be given the credit for burning the Library of Alexandria?
While most Western academics argue otherwise, according to early Muslim writers, the great Library of Alexandria itself—deemed a repository of pagan knowledge contradicting the Koran—was destroyed under bin al-As’s reign and in compliance with Caliph Omar’s command.
Not really funny, but it’ll make the endy sort of entertaining.
We will also get sort of a vicarious potlatch feeling out of it, so we have that going for us too. I mean, how often do you get to see people destroy cool stuff that’s a few thousand years old? Thankfully not that often. What was the last time? Oh yeah, the last time Islamist nutjobs took over a country and blew up those cool, Buddhist statues.
Oh, and since we haven’t had a click on sloppy vagina for a long time and it’s not in our word-cloud in the sidebar.
Sloppy vagina pics below the fold.
Seriously? Man, you people are into some sick shit.
Not gonna happen. Just be thankful didn’t look for, or p-shop, Janet Reno in a “Basic Instinct” shot.
