Cultural terrorism in the name of Islam

“The real God is only Allah, and all other false gods should be removed.”

This declaration from the one-eyed cleric Mullah Omar on March 2, 2001 created a chill throughout the free world, succeeding another declaration issued by Afghanistan’s Taliban regime stating that all pre-Islamic statues in the country were to be destroyed. That edict, and the resulting demolition, has been condemned worldwide as “cultural terrorism.”
