2,000-year-old artefacts looted by ISIS from ancient sites in Iraq and Syria are being sold on EBAY

2,000-year-old artefacts looted from ancient sites in Iraq and Syria by ISIS are being sold on eBay as jihadis cash in on relics dating back millennia.

Jewellery, ceramics and coins plundered from museums within ISIS territory are known to pass between criminal gangs before turning up in Gulf States and later appearing on trading websites.

Two coins from Apamea, in western Syria, which date back to Ancient Greece have appeared on eBay with price tags of £57 and £90.

This comes after entire Roman mosaics were ripped up by a bulldozer from the ancient site.

The trade in antiquities is a profitable business for the terror group and is thought to be worth tens of millions of pounds, The Times reports…

    Oh good at least they didn’t destroy everything. Now some western museums can snap up the pieces and save them until those same nations become muslim nations… then hopefully someone will launch them in a capsule into space so as to save them for a islam free future.

    The trade in antiquities is a profitable business for the terror group and is thought to be worth tens of millions of pounds but the more profitable business of scamming people out of their money is worth hundreds of millions.

    Gotta laugh at the line:
    “This seller is currently away until the 16th of March 2015….”
    Busy dodging those bombs from the coalition and, in particular, the Jordanian air force.

    They gotta fund their war effort and the purchase of more meth for their fighters somehow…
