These morons want to destroy our priceless human heritage.
They should be jailed for life or until they repent whichever comes
later

A Kuwaiti Islamist preacher has called for the destruction of Egypt's
pyramids and Sphinx - one of the 7 wonders of the ancient world -
claiming that just because early Muslims did not destroy the pharaohs'
legacy "does not mean that we shouldn't".

UK radical Islamist Anjem Choudary echoed Baghdadi’s sentiments,
telling The Telegraph: “When Egypt comes under the auspices of the
Khalifa [Caliphate], there will be no more pyramids, no more Sphinx,
no more idolatry,” saying that the ancient statues’s destruction “will
be just.”

Shall we only threaten and be angry for an hour?
When the storm is ended shall we find
How softly but how swiftly they have sidled back to power
By the favour and contrivance of their kind?

It won't be the first time. The caliph al-Ma'moon (ruled 813 - 842)
attempted to destroy the pyramids but obviously failed. He did this because
of the belief that you do not leave any image without defacing it or any
built-up grave without leveling it. The fact that these were part of the
legacy of mankind was looked upon as a flimsy excuse.

The Dead Sea Scrolls are worth a lot more in the bits and pieces that
they were cut into. Everyone gets a bit.
