    "How long shall they kill our prophets, while we stand aside and look?"

    Or in this case, "How long shall they destroy our monuments, while we protect ourselves from Zombie attacks?"

    When Kush saw Persia coming in on KMT, Kush organized and brought KMT back to glory. Shoot, even when we saw Italy coming on Ethiopia, we organized and fought for Ethiopia. Today, the Muslims had our people and our land under control for over a thousand years and now they are looking to destroy our Pyramid but we want to discuss "Zombie Attacks" and pretty much everything unrelated to what we're losing and how we regain it.

    When did we become so sorry? 'Cause at least we fought for Ethiopia back in the day. Now we're actually talking about tangents as great attacks are done against us.

    Seriously, what the . . .?

    --

    According to several reports in the Arabic media, prominent Muslim clerics have begun to call for the demolition of Egypt’s Great Pyramids—or, in the words of Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi‘i, those “symbols of paganism,” which Egypt’s Salafi party has long planned to cover with wax. Most recently, Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs” and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt’s new president, Muhammad Morsi, to “destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what the Sahabi Amr bin al-As could not.”​
    This is a reference to the Muslim Prophet Muhammad’s companion, Amr bin al-As and his Arabian tribesmen, who invaded and conquered Egypt circa 641. Under al-As and subsequent Muslim rule, many Egyptian antiquities were destroyed as relics of infidelity. While most Western academics argue otherwise, according to early Muslim writers, the great Library of Alexandria itself—deemed a repository of pagan knowledge contradicting the Koran—was destroyed under bin al-As’s reign and in compliance with Caliph Omar’s command.​
    However, while book-burning was an easy activity in the 7th century, destroying the mountain-like pyramids and their guardian Sphinx was not—even if Egypt’s Medieval Mamluk rulers “de-nosed” the latter during target practice (though popular legend still attributes it to a Westerner, Napoleon).​

    Now, however, as Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sheikhs” observes, and thanks to modern technology, the pyramids can be destroyed. The only question left is whether the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt is “pious” enough—if he is willing to complete the Islamization process that started under the hands of Egypt’s first Islamic conqueror.​
    Nor is such a course of action implausible. History is laden with examples of Muslims destroying their own pre-Islamic heritage—starting with Islam’s prophet Muhammad himself, who destroyed Arabia’s Ka‘ba temple, transforming it into a mosque.​
    Asking “What is it about Islam that so often turns its adherents against their own patrimony?” Daniel Pipes provides several examples, from Medieval Muslims in India destroying their forefathers’ temples, to contemporary Muslims destroying their non-Islamic heritage in Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Malaysia, and Tunisia.​
    Currently, in what the International Criminal Court is describing as a possible “war crime,” Islamic fanatics are destroying the ancient heritage of the city of Timbuktu in Mali—all to Islam’s triumphant war cry, “Allahu Akbar!”​
    Much of this hate for their own pre-Islamic heritage is tied to the fact that, traditionally, Muslims do not identify with this or that nation, culture, heritage, or language, but only with the Islamic nation—the Umma.​
    Accordingly, while many Egyptians—Muslims and non-Muslims alike—see themselves as Egyptians, Islamists have no national identity, identifying only with Islam’s “culture,” based on the “sunna” of the prophet and Islam’s language, Arabic. This sentiment was clearly reflected when the former Leader of the Muslim Brotherhood, Muhammad Akef, declared “the hell with Egypt,” indicating that the interests of his country are secondary to Islam’s.​

    It is further telling that such calls are being made now—immediately after a Muslim Brotherhood member became Egypt’s president. In fact, the same reports discussing the call to demolish the last of the Seven Wonders of the World, also note that Egyptian Salafis are calling on Morsi to banish all Shias and Baha’is from Egypt.​
    In other words, Morsi’s call to release the Blind Sheikh, a terrorist mastermind, may be the tip of the iceberg in coming audacity. From calls to legalize Islamic sex-slave marriage to calls to institute “morality police” to calls to destroy Egypt’s mountain-like monuments, under Muslim Brotherhood tutelage, the bottle has been uncorked, and the genie unleashed in Egypt.​
    Will all those international institutions, which make it a point to look the other way whenever human rights abuses are committed by Muslims, lest they appear “Islamophobic,” at least take note now that the Great Pyramids appear to be next on Islam’s hit list, or will the fact that Muslims are involved silence them once again—even as those most ancient symbols of human civilization are pummeled to the ground?​

    Though the article above is interesting and alarming; I personally look forward to the day when ALL symbols; religious, historic, or otherwise, are destroyed. They are, in my opinion, a burden to humanity and only contribute to endless arguments of who begat who and who did what to who. We do have more pressing issues facing ALL of humanity like the eventual and real threat that global warming and the melting of the ice-caps- which will destroy symbols, those who fight to destroy them and they who fight to protect them as well.

    How can symbols burden? All of our progress is based upon symbols. Don't throw the baby out with the bath water. Not even if you know how to re-invent the wheel.

    Global Warming is a real threat. But if you'd destroy the world to save it, you won't save a thing.

    How could you even say such a thing? These pyramids are the heritage and culture of black people all around the world. They are our pride and glory. For you to sit up here and say that it's okay to let these sand dwelling apes destroy them speaks volumes about you. I'm looking forward to reading more of your posts on this site.

    Such an interesting postion we are in. A being with no since heritage " african america" that must belive we are from every where. And responsible for all things that are melanated. The distorted view of imagining that we are to protected relics 10,000 miles away when we cannot protect our blood 1 mile away form ourselves. I love and appreciate our past glory and it's symbolic physcial relics, However it is a pipe dream at this point to think that we can just hurdle what is in front of our face and make an effect on something so far away. If ur home is not in order there is no way one can fix the community. If they community is not in order one cannot address the city ect. hetep

    Pipe dream? It was a reality when Ethiopia was attacked. It was even a reality during Apartheid twenty years ago.

    When did it become a Pipe Dream? Why? The nay sayers, that's why.

    Ya'll aggressively shout down others for not talking about Zombies but happily dismiss global action against our ancient artifacts.

    Everyone wants to organize against myth until it becomes a reality. Pitiful.

    AbSiblings- When Europeans forcibly brought Africans to the West can it not be said that they 'burdened' them with their symbols? Symbols like the Christian crucifix; symbols of Christmas; the 26 symbols of their alphabet; the symbolism of their language - I can go on, but I think these examples can suffice. Symbols can and do burden. According to Wikipedia's definition[a partial quote], "A symbol is something that represents an idea, a process, or a physical entity. The purpose of a symbol is to communicate meaning." And therein, I believe, lies the rub - in that word 'meaning' - Any cursory glance at what we have come to call history will show that symbols have always been used as means of conquests, indoctrination, and subordination, and have never conveyed anything other than what the conqueror wanted communicated to the conquered. It is the stumbling blocks to real communication that symbols have perpetrated, still perpetrate, and will continue to perpetrate [if we let them], that prompts me to want them all gone. As for the idea of 'progress' that is a whole other discussion - for all of what is attributed to what we call 'progress' is highly debatable.

    backtoafrica - That the pyramids are the heritage and culture of black people all around the world has not been absolutely and irrefutably proven by anyone. 'Proof' of their origins, on whichever side of that argument you stand, are for all intents and purposes educated conjectures, and in some cases outright hyperbole. That you would refer to other humans as 'sand dwelling apes' give grand credence to my argument as to how symbols do nothing but generate endless, useless, arbitrary debates that lead to nowhere - cause everyone eventually retreats to their own stated positions - but also sadly, as in your case, derogatory name calling - a phenomena we hate vigorously when it is directed at us.

    Brother, let me say something. I hate the idea that a bunch of us is bull ishtin. We over here still thinking we Colored people, brothers still think that the word "Pharaoh" got to do with them when it doesn't. Part of us want our own while the other part just wants what white people got. Part of us want to leave, part wants to stay. Part of us want to bust their @ss while another part of us wants to sleep with them at night. Part of us think that we're "all the human race" while another part of us "knows better". Part of us don't care two cents what happens to other black people or Afraka while another part of us are conscious of it all and state that it matters. Part of us are as spiritual as we can be while another part of us are as beastly as can be.

    Whatever We Are or Are Not, It is Clear That EVERYTHING STARTED WITH US AND WILL END WITH US....So we have a choice, we either aid in our own restoration or take part in our own demise...but whatever choice we make, it won't have ish to do with white people or their cronnies...aka house N-gers!!!

    ntresting! This internet pontification. U are doing no more than i nor can u do so. I am just a realistic person. I am just more motivated about my immediate surroundings. I do not have the means to travel and stop the islamic attack on the pyra mids. U and i unless u are there are in the same boat are not effecting any change in this matter. U have just convinced yourself that u are better because u are oh so upset about it. But for some reason " no one else cares" smmh!
