Say 'Buh-bye' to the Pyramids and other Egyptian relics

It seems that the Muslim Brotherhood is starting to flex its muscles in Egypt. They are wanting to put Islamic type dress and mixing and mingling of the sexes codes onto beaches. Whatever, it's their country and I will never need to go there to get some beach-time.  However:
Abd Al-Munim A-Shahhat, a spokesman for the Salafi group Dawa, has said that Egypt's world-renowned pharaonic archeology – its pyramids, Sphinx and other monuments covered with un-Islamic imagery – should also be hidden from the public eye.

"The pharaonic culture is a rotten culture," A-Shahhat told the London-based Arab daily A-Sharq Al-Awsat on Wednesday, saying the faces of ancient statues "should be covered with wax, since they are religiously forbidden." He likened the Egyptian relics to the idols which circled the walls of Mecca in pre-Islamic times.
Lest we forget what Muslims do to un-Islamic imagery:

Recall at the time that UNESCO tried to say that this destructive abomination was an anomaly:
Koichiro Matsuura, chief of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), said he had convened an emergency meeting of members of the Organization of the Islamic Conference to try to stop the destruction.
"They are destroying statues that the entire world considers to be masterpieces," Matsuura said.
"And this is being done in the name of an interpretation of the Muslim faith that is not recognized anywhere else in the world."
It's only one small step from "hidden from the public eye" to destruction.  And they call us unclean and immoral.

Yep, now the truth is starting to come out... Sharia law is coming, whether they want it or not!

It's a shame that the Cairo Museum has been fighting so hard for the return of artifacts since they are going to be destroyed once the Muslim Brotherhood consolidates its power.

I will be shocked, *shocked* to find antiquity destruction going on in a Sharia-dominated country.

Atom Smasher--I'm sure it will be entirely 'unexpected' as well.

I find any system that is so unsure of its own beliefs that it can brook no opposing viewpoint and that predicates itself through destruction to be abhorrent.
