    Default ISIS savages destroy Iraq's Assyrian heritage with sledgehammers and torches

    It was horrible enough when around a year ago it was revealed that they were selling priceless Syrian artefacts for a few dollars, but this time around, they just destroy them outright.
    No ISIS-related story in the last few years has infuriated me this much.
    I hope the muslim populations join in with the Assyrian and Kurdish militias to get rid of these scum, but I don't think that's likely.

    What's your opinion about what should be done about the current situation?
    Their goal is obviously to piss off people, so since this last attempt worked so well, they will definitely try to destroy more artefacts. What could be done to stop them?

    ^^ Well, this is what Israel wanted anyway:

    Assyria, this is what else
    the Lord says to you:
    “Your name will be forgotten.
    I will destroy every idol
    in your temple
    ,
    and I will send you to the grave,
    because you are worthless.”
    Nahum 1:12-14

    And Obama's main priority is, in his own words, Israel's sacrosanct security.

    Once there are no Assyrians left in the Middle East I think the entire region should be nuked. Yes, I'm serious.

    This thread is about the destruction of Assyrian or other Mesopotamian relics and artefacts by ISIS. For discussion on ISIS persecuting Assyrians, see this thread. For general ISIS discussion, see the current ISIS thread.

    I hope all of these bastards are killed.

    Is that why Oballah is busy sucking up to the mullahs as we speak?

    Oh, and if Israel really wanted to do that the government would just trash the Israel Museum's Assyrian collection like the "Palestinians" trashed Israelite artifacts found on Temple Mount... Anyway, that would be a pretty retarded move since Assyrian archives actually mention Israel's existence in the region.

    Well he's a two-faced devil (lots of partners to satisfy) like all politicians, but obviously ISIS is basically proxy warriors (read: foot soldiers) for the anti-Iranian Saudi Israelia coalition, and the US is mainly their puppet. But we can take that discussion in the ISIS thread if you like.

    Mubarak Hussein Oballah has consistently proven to be a subversive "partner", he's managed to make an overwhelming majority of Israelis lose trust in the US of A. First there was Obama's refusal to deliver Hellfire missiles, then we had "Chickenshitgate" and now we have a drama campaign going on around Netanyahu's upcoming speech at congress (and of course, this has a lot to do with his dream: allowing the donkey-riding mullahs to have their own nukes).
    I'd say he's pretty consistent with his beliefs, to say the least... Needless to say, this is creating a huge rift between American Jews (an overwhelming majority of whom happen to be Husseinites) and the rest of the community, I sure wouldn't like to be an American Jew nowadays.

    I know khayo, we share a lot of history. And I really wish things weren't like this, but this is how it is. My people is being genocided and my cultural heritage is getting trashed, and the only one doing something about it, Bashar al-Assad, is portrayed by Israel and America as an evil dictator.

    What ISIS is doing now though is actually classically Assyrian:

    “Susa, the great holy city, abode of their gods, seat of their mysteries, I conquered. I entered its palaces, I opened their treasuries where silver and gold, goods and wealth were amassed... I destroyed the ziggurat of Susa. I smashed its shining copper horns. I reduced the temples of Elam to naught; their gods and goddesses I scattered to the winds. The tombs of their ancient and recent kings I devastated, I exposed to the sun, and I carried away their bones toward the land of Ashur. I devastated the provinces of Elam and on their lands I sowed salt.” — Aššur-bāni-apli, Fall of Elam

    The ancient Assyrians were basically proto-Islam, or proto-ISIS since ISIS is true Islam. It's just a damn shame ISIS is doing this stuff in Iraq and not in Saudi Arabia. I remember some ISIS dudes talking about destroying Mecca or something. That would have been great if they carried it out.

    I always thought about how good it could be if this happened.

    I'm not sure what would ensue (what will be the positives and what will be the negatives), but it'd be pretty big, and I'm sure it'd give quite a blow to Islam as we know it. It could also make more muslims question their religion perhaps, since they'll question themselves about why Allah "allowed it" to happen.

    What would ensue is pretty easy to predict: The KSA would lose its main touristic attraction
