Vandals have destroyed tombstones of fallen World War Two soldiers in Benghazi – and not for the first time. According to Alarabiya:
Headstones on World War II military graves in Libya’s eastern city of Benghazi have again been desecrated in the second such attack in four months, local officials said on Saturday.
“On Thursday, Christian graves were desecrated for a second time in Benghazi,” Mohammed al-Quzairi of the local security committee told AFP, adding that the identity of the assailants was unclear.
The Benghazi civilian council said it was trying to track down those responsible.
“We are cooperating with the security committee to ascertain the identity of the assailants and bring them to justice as quickly as possible,” its spokesman, Khaled al-Jazawi, said.
A similar attack hit the same military cemetery in February.
The assailants shattered headstones of British and allied servicemen who fought in North African desert campaigns against the Nazis during World War II.
Among the comments there, we find this:
These are the graves of colonization forces of kufaar, (disbelievers) they had no place in libya when they were alive, and their dust or bones have none today either. They must be broken down completely, who do you disbelievers think you are to come and occupy our countries and then have graves in them? soon InshaaAllah the whole world will be under Islam.
Even though the above sentiment is a minority one among Muslims, it is always present in Muslim societies. Every religion will have its extremists, but the Muslim ones seem to have fewer qualms about using violence and destruction for their ends.
Lest anybody has forgotten, here are some before and after photos of one of the great Buddhas in Bamiyan, Afghanistan:
The Notre Dame in Paris took almost 200 years to construct. If current trends continue, it will share the fate of the Buddhas of Bamiyan and the WWII tombstones of Libya.
As sure as night follows day, if Europeans continue their current course, Europe’s cathedrals will be destroyed. Its treasures will be looted and its heritage will be put in jeopardy. Consider the plight of the Egyptian Copts. From Me Forum:
Most of us in the West have little knowledge of what life is like for Christians in the Muslim world. Take for example, the Coptic Christians, who were once the dominant religious group in Egypt. Previously the mainstay of their nation, Copts are now living as an oppressed minority, denied religious freedom and equal status in Egyptian life. The Copts are routinely denied meaningful employment and may not hold positions in the Egyptian Civil Service. Copts are refused permission to build new churches and even a request to renovate a church that is badly in need of repair can lead to an outbreak of severe Muslim violence against the Copts. Recently, there have even been calls for a return to collecting Jizya from the Copts, a tax that the Qur’an instructs Muslims to charge to all Dhimmis (non-Muslims) whenever Muslims are in power.
There is no reason to expect Europe’s non-Muslim minority to be treated any differently. By continuing to support pro-immigration politicians, Europeans are actually voting for their beautiful cathedrals to be destroyed, their cultural treasures to be looted and their daughters to be violated.
Working to prevent such a future does not make a person “racist” or “far-right” or an “extremist”. It makes him caring and wise, courageous and far-sighted. Those of us in America, witnessing the spectacle of Europe’s demise from afar, can only wonder and weep – and yes, we can also write. When will Europeans rise in large numbers to put an end to this insanity?
