So much for religious tolerance. If you do not believe in a persons religion then don't. But to destroy ancient relics is criminal. What if some religion that said that mosques were blasphemous and started to bomb them how would the Muslims feel? Hurt, enraged? Yes one would say that.

So if you do not want to have idols then don't worship them. If someone else does then leave them alone. Simple isn't it.

How can any Western country give any degree of tolerance to these people as they certainly have no tolerance for others.

All they want to do is destroy. They build and contribute absolutely nothing.

why would anybody be surprised at this? these people will ruin, kill or destroy anything they don't like. they should be wiped off the face of the earth. any muslim should be watched and treated with caution. you can't trust them since they don't even tell the truth. their religion says they don't have to, they only have to kill anybody that doesn't believe as they do. they are scum.

Unfortunately, this doesn't surprise me. They are all monsters.

They're too many religious fanatics in the world. And too few great historic sites. Weighing one against the other, I'll put greater importance on the great historic sites.

Barbarians.

Whilst they are destroying their own faith's tombs and monuments maybe they will leave alone those of other faiths.

Why do they need to always destroy something.

Antonia, I agree with you - Real barbarians!
