Thousands of years of history vanished in just some up and down sledgehammers moves
Armed with sledgehammers, drills and pickaxes, ISIS global terrorists (and nobody can stop their advance) have been videotaped destroying ancient artefacts in a museum in Mosul, in northern Iraq. The five-minute recording was allegedly made at the Nineveh museum, and the 3,000-year-old sculptures being destroyed date back to the Assyrian Empire.
Taking Assyrian hostages this week in the north of Syria, and now burning the remains of the Middle East most ancient civilizations and populations who lived there, leaves me just speechless. Is this world, U.S. was dreaming to create when they first invaded Iraq? These people who don’t have any education or even respect Islam how they still control large part of countries in the Middle East? Who to blame? Who can stop them? Destiny? How can people still support their acts, especially a small number of muslims living in France?
This comes fresh on the heels of news emerging from Mosul claiming that the militants, who have come to control large swathes of Iraq and Syria, have burned thousands of books and rare manuscripts at the Mosul Library as well as other libraries in areas they hold. Mosul, Iraq’s second largest city, fell into the militants’ hands in June 2014 and is now under the control of the group.
For the history (contributed by Unnecessary news from the world , the museum of Baghdad was looted by American soldiers, after the invasion of Iraq, between April 2003 and 2009. An important number between 170,000 and 270,000 of valuable historical monuments-works -artefacts were destroyed or disappeared. These events did not attract enough attention of this world’s “policemen”.
As a consequence, those works did not belong into humanity’s currently tangible civilization anymore in addition to current . These belonged to the ancient civilization, which was quite one of the most advanced cultures. The American soldiers, who looted Iraq museum and terrorist organization ISIS are the avatar actually. They have been choosen as playmaker’s avatar. Playmakers do not care about the planet. The Eastern world says it out loudly that these playmakers are both CIA and Mossad.Moreover, civil-ordinary western people are not still well aware of these facts.
They suppose that only monuments and artefacts of eastern civilizations collapsed. I want to ask them that. Do you remember the Planet of the Apes (1968) movie? In the final scene, Charlton Heston had found the remains of the Statue of Liberty. . The Parthenon or the Louvre Museum don’t exist in this scene. Because, the playmakers shows that there is only one civilization which is symbolized with the Statue of Liberty : the American civilization on this planet. So, on this planet including the east and west; the American and British imperialism do not consider that they think nothing more than their arrogance. And these news will continue to be heard until the final scene of that movie will become.
Reports this week that Mosul’s central library has been ransacked by Isis and 100,000 books and manuscripts burned has cast an international spotlight on a new wave of destruction that has been raging through the northern Iraqi city since last summer.
Earlier this month the head of the UN’s Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (Unesco) voiced alarm over “one of the most devastating acts of destruction of library collections in human history.” Director general Irina Bokova said the destruction involved museums, libraries and universities across Mosul.
The escalating devastation culminated on Thursday with the release of a five-minute video purportedly showing militants using sledgehammers to smash ancient artifacts in the city. The video, posted on Twitter and bearing the logo of Isis’s media arm, shows a group of bearded men in a museum using hammers and drills to destroy several large statues, including one depicting a winged-bull Assyrian protective deity that dates back to the 9th century BC.
According to Time.Com, The director of New York’s Metropolitan Museum of Art condemned what he called the “catastrophic destruction to one of the most important museums in the Middle East.”
“This mindless attack on great art, on history, and on human understanding constitutes a tragic assault not only on the Mosul Museum, but on our universal commitment to use art to unite people and promote human understanding,” Thomas P. Campbell said in a statement.
Corine Wegener, a cultural heritage officer at the Smithsonian Institution who helps preserve ancient works at risk in war zones, labeled it the “wonton and unnecessary destruction of cultural heritage.”
