Egyptian jihadist calls for removal of Sphinx, Pyramids
 
Elections have consequences....way to go Bammy



‘Destroy the idols,’ Egyptian jihadist calls for removal of Sphinx, Pyramids

An Egyptian jihad leader, with self-professed links to the Taliban, called for the “destruction of the Sphinx and the Giza Pyramids in Egypt,” drawing ties between the Egyptian relics and Buddha statues, local media reported this week.

Murgan Salem al-Gohary, an Islamist leader twice-sentenced under former President Hosni Mubarak for advocating violence, called on Muslims to remove such “idols.”

“All Muslims are charged with applying the teachings of Islam to remove such idols, as we did in Afghanistan when we destroyed the Buddha statues,” he said on Saturday during a television interview on an Egyptian private channel, widely watched by Egyptian and Arab audiences.

“God ordered Prophet Mohammed to destroy idols,” he added. “When I was with the Taliban we destroyed the statue of Buddha, something the government failed to do.”

His comments came a day after thousands of ultraconservative Islamists gathered in Tahrir Square to call for the strict application of Sharia law in the new constitution.

Because this would never have been said if Mubarek was still in charge and the only reason Mubarek was tossed is because Obama defeated McCain?

Got it

Of course McCain was on record that Mubarek needed to go:noidea:

Obama put the jihadists in charge by assisting in the coup.


One banana republic supporting another, that's Obama

Bu - bu - but I thought Mubarek was one of the foreign despots Obama apologized to :noidea::chuckle:

Paul Ryan during the vice-presidential debate on Thursday night if it was ever appropriate for the United States to apologize to other countries, the Republican congressman criticized the Obama administration for its delay in calling for then-Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak to step down:

What we should not be apologizing for are standing up for our values. What we should not be doing is saying to the Egyptian people, while Mubarak is cracking down on them, that he's a good guy and, in the next week, say he ought to go.

Although I admit with Mitt Etch-A-Sketch you never knew what he believed, even Willard at one point said Mubarek needed to go

In early February 2011, only days before the White House called for Mubarak's resignation, the former Massachusetts governor sounded a bit more like Paul Ryan on Thursday night. It was time, he explained, for Mubarak to "step out of the way or lead the transition," and for the United States to "make it very clear to the people of Egypt that we stand with the voices of democracy and freedom."

But good talking point for the Rubio-Cantor ticket in 2016

Muslim Brotherhood spokesmen, as well as Palestinians, made explicit calls for Jihad and for liberating the whole of Palestine.

“one day we shall kill all the Jews” Muslim Brotherhood activists chanted: “Tel Aviv, Tel Aviv, judgment day has come.”
