ISIS destroys heritage site… again

A shocking video has emerged of ISIS thugs using sledgehammers and AK-47 rifles to destroy walls and statues in Iraq’s UNESCO World Heritage city of Hatra.

In the slickly produced seven minute footage, jihadists are shown smashing shrines and statues in the 2,000-year old city.

Militants are also recorded chipping away at the bases of some of the larger wall sculptures and cracking boulders into ancient city pillars, while eerie music plays in the background.

    ISIS is trying to prove without any doubt they are the biggest assholes on the planet.

    So they have that going for them.

    • Pity the Muslim world seems incapable of dealing with them.

        Most can’t even tie their own shoelaces. It’s why they always wear sandals.

      Maybe you can have the travel agency switch it to Kenya and save your deposit that way?

    Ignorance and paranoia go hand in hand within this cult of death and destruction.

    What’s that saying? “History is written by the victors . . .”

  • Are any of you guys on Facebook under pseudonyms? I would like to follow you there since i skipped Twitter (get too obessed on Twitter, and mad on PC idiots).

    • Nope FB is not to be trusted;)

      • How? If i am anonymus, have a anonymus email adress etc, what can happen?

    UNESCO World Heritage site? That should spur the UN into action. ISIS is in trouble now 🙂

    • andycanuck

      Come on. Paper cuts from letters or disapproval can really hurt!

      • zee

        I just got a damn paper cut. So much for a “paperless” world 🙁

  • barryjr

    Don’t blame only ISIS this is a standard Islamic practice. It happened in Afghanistan and other places.If it isn’t Islamic destroy it.

    • BillyHW

      But true islam means peace, the pope said so!

      • barryjr

        Isn’t that the socialist idiot that leads the cult that helped Nazis escape to South America?

      • Maggat

        The Pope, Francis will be the first to be decapitated in 1750 years.

      • WalterBannon

        this pope is a marxist asshole

    • Alain

      Exactly since they then claim that any former people, culture and religion never existed. The Muslims keep trying the same thing with the remains of the Temple in Jerusalem and everywhere else.

  • BillyHW

    They are just jealous because they wouldn’t be able to build something so great even if you gave them a million years. Islam has turned the people of the middle east into barbarian savages who can do nothing but rape and kill.

  • john700

    In the ’80s, the Communist regime in Romania demolished over 20 churches in Bucharest only. The brainwashed idiots coming out of Western universities still think Communism was a great idea, just badly implemented. They also think Islam is a great religion and ISIS is just misinterpreting the Quran.

    • It is said that one cannot fix stupidity.

          Or a bullet. Or a baseball bat wrapped in barbed wire and dipped in hog feces. Or with a sharp knife. Or a piano wire. Or …

        • Well, we should use all-natural materials, so….

    are you sure it’s music? i thought music was haram.

  • Barrington Minge

    Let’s face it, ISIS will leave no memorable legacy once they have been stamped out.

    • WalterBannon

      there are a lot of graves that disagree with that statement…

    Meanwhile, Henry Moore’s pretentious crap goes unscathed.

  • It’s just history!

  • Maggat

    Coming soon, the burning of the Louvre, the explosion of Notre Dame, the bulldozing of the Cologne Cathedral and, just wait to see what they’ll do to the Sistine Chapel. Sorry Michelangelo, but it’s all over.

    • David

      The horror of it is that the death cult could destroy any or all of those priceless treasures of humanity and nary a thing would come of it. Western civilization is going out with a whimper

    • It should be unthinkable.
