Several Muslim clerics are calling for the destruction of Egypt’s Great Pyramids, FrontPage Magazine reported, citing Arabic media accounts.

Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi’i said the pyramids are “symbols of paganism,” while Abd al-Letif al-Mahmoud—president of the National Unity in Bahrain, publicly requested that newly elected Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi “destroy the Pyramids.”

In Mali, the Associated Press reported that Islamic extremists on Monday decimated tombs as well as the gate of a 600-year-old mosque in the ancient city of Timbuktu.

  • Many members of the Muslim brotherhood are illiterate like millions of Egypts population.These people need education. They need Enlightenment just like we had in Europe 300+ yrs ago. They need fiscal awareness of fact that millions are dependant on Egypts historical monuments which attract tourists and earns the peoplE a living.Islam needs to be relevant to the modern world In sh’allah.
