Ancient Relics and Statues Destroyed in Mosul…Sound Familiar?

“Islamic State thugs have destroyed a collection of priceless statues and sculptures in Iraq dating back thousands of years.
Extremists used sledgehammers and power drills to smash ancient artwork as they rampaged through a museum in the northern city of Mosul.
Video footage shows a group of bearded men in the Nineveh Museum using tools to wreck 3,000-year-old statues after pushing them over.”
How utterly disgraceful and disrespectful to destroy the culture, heritage, and history of a people because of hate and ignorance.
Sound familiar? How frightening is it that there are people in the United States who would like to see the same thing happen to our Confederate memorials, monuments, and artifacts? It’s already happening here, and will continue, if we don’t start standing up and defending our heritage!
“The men of Nineveh will stand up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it; for they repented at the preaching of Jonah, and now something greater than Jonah is here.”  Matthew 12:41

  1. In a news article I saw the other day it said most of those relics were reproductions not the original artifacts. That is good to know.

  2. I think Ms. Hathaway is dabbling a bit too much in Hyperbole saying that something similar is happening here when nothing like it has happened what-so-ever.

    • No not actually. One would actually have their head in the ground to not see all the attacks against Confederate history, heritage, monuments, graves and so forth. It is mostly a daily thing. To be honest I don’t post such attacks since it would be nearly all that would be posted. Perhaps in the future—–
