Isil ‘blows up Temple of Bel’ in ancient Syrian city of Palmyra

Violent jihadists of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isil) have partially destroyed the the most famous landmark in the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra.

The Temple of Bel was damaged on Sunday, according to messages posted on the Twitter account of a local activist group, the Palmyra Co-ordination Council.

Although the extent of the destruction was unclear, a Palmyra resident, Nasser al Thaer, said that a huge blast had echoed through the area on Sunday afternoon.

“The bricks and the columns are on the ground,” he told the Associated Press.

    And yet liberals in the US are busy demolishing statues and memorials representative of a period of history in the American south they don’t like.

    Women being sold and raped. Feminists silent. Homosexuals systematically murdered. Gay rights groups silent. Horrible abuses of human rights, mass executions, torture, people being burned alive and beheaded on video. Human rights groups silent. World heritage sites destroyed. Intellectuals silent.Staggering numbers of refugees on the move. UN silent. Unprecedented termoil in the world. The press concerned about Trump.

    Sure sign there’s a democrat/socialist in the Whitehut.
