Democracy Now - "Video has surfaced showing militants from the Islamic State
destroying ancient artifacts at a museum in the Iraqi city of Mosul. Men are seen toppling
statues and using sledgehammers and drills to destroy the artifacts. The Guardian reports
one of the statues destroyed was a winged-bull Assyrian protective deity that dates back
to the 9th century B.C. The Islamic State has also reportedly destroyed the Mosul public
library, which housed more than 8,000 rare books and manuscripts. On Thursday,
UNESCO, the cultural arm of the United Nations, called for the U.N. Security Council to
hold an emergency meeting on protecting Iraq’s cultural heritage. "I condemn this as a
deliberate attack against Iraq’s millennial history and culture, and as an inflammatory
incitement to violence and hatred," said UNESCO Director-General Irina Bokova. We
speak to Zainab Bahrani, professor of Near Eastern and East Mediterranean art and
archeology at Columbia University. She has worked extensively in Iraq, including periods
as senior adviser to Iraq’s Ministry of Culture and a UNESCO consultant."
