Really, what other conclusion can there be?
Baghdad (AFP) – The Islamic State jihadist group began bulldozing the ancient Assyrian city of Nimrud in northern Iraq on Thursday, the tourism and antiquities ministry said.
IS “assaulted the historic city of Nimrud and bulldozed it with heavy vehicles,” the ministry said on an official Facebook page, the group’s latest attack on the country’s historical heritage.
It’s long past time for the Western civilization power to deal with ISIS and other radical Islamic groups with extreme prejudice, to put the rest of the ummah on notice that willful destruction of our shared cultural heritage will no longer be tolerated. First the Bamiyan Buddhas, then some of the artificats in Mosul and now Nimrud, all in the name of “Allah.”
Because when these savages get finished with ancient cities, they are coming for ours.
