Over the past few days many people have sent me various links to a story about the destruction of shrines to Islamic “saints” in North Africa. I didn’t bother with the story even though the Muslim war on history is of particular interest to me. The fact that Muslims, once a piece of land is conquered for Islam, will then work 3 shifts at the total destruction of artifacts and any evidence of pre-Islamic control of the area. A thing which, itself shows that Muslims and Islam does not care about the facts but abut utter and complete totalitarian control. Another large data point in the notion that Islam is not a religion at all, but a totalitarian political system, as so many (especially Geert Wilders) has said for so long.
I didn’t bother with it because Muslims destroying Islamic shrines seems perfectly OK with me. But it shouldn’t have. First of all, a good Muslim is a terrifying thing. The 911 hijackers were among the best of Muslims based on all Islamic scripture. So a Muslim ‘Saint’ must be one black hearted son-of-a-bitch.
However history is history and the destruction of it is a crime against humanity whether we like the story or we do not. Much like if Austrians destroyed all evidence of the Nazi death camps and then proceeded to say they never existed. We cannot permit it.
So in that spirit I must agree with the UNESCO on this one.
Thanks to Don L, Conn M and all friends of freedom who sent these links in.

Islamists damage historic mosques
Al-Qaeda lays mines around city of Gao
In Timbuktu, rebels from the al-Qaeda-allied Ansar Dine (Defenders of Faith) group continued their destruction of the city’s cultural treasures, defying a chorus of inter-national condemnation.
Some residents sobbed as the Islamists broke down the “sacred door” of one of Timbuktu’s three ancient mosques, Sidi Yahya – closed for centuries due to local beliefs that to open it would bring misfortune.
