Islamic State Is Selling Looted Art Online for Needed Cash

The Whatsapp message appeared on his iPhone: photos of an ancient Mesopotamian vase worth $250,000, part of a highly-valued set, is waiting to be extracted.

The recipient, Amr Al Azm, replied that he was interested. How to proceed? A message from a different account followed. The vase could be smuggled through Lebanon.

    Well I guess the plus side is that every artifact they sell is one less they destroy.

    • Let them smash them all – not a penny for the heartless bastards!

    It bothers me MORE to watch these filthy ,Islamic animals destroy ancient artifacts –than to does to watch them killing , torturing , raping and all the other inhuman stuff they do for the Glory of Allah.
