I’ve been reading about ISIS threatening to blow up the pyramids since forever. Are they having trouble locating them? You can even see them from space, ya know. What’s the delay?
TH: On Wednesday, ISIS destroyed an ancient temple dated back 2,500 years in Iraq’s northwestern Nineveh province and vowed to do the same to the legendary pyramids of Egypt.
The temple of Nabu, originally a Babylonian deity, was the god of wisdom at the time of the Assyrian kingdom in the 1st millennium B.C. ISIS considered the ancient temple a “symbol of apostasy”, urging its jihadis to destroy any such temple “that have been previously used by the enemies of Allah”. more
