DAMASCUS – Islamic State militants have blown up the Arch of Triumph, a major monument in the 2,000-year-old Roman city of Palmyra, Syria’s antiquities chief said on Sunday, after they destroyed two ancient temples at the central Syrian site in recent months.

Maamoun Abdulkarim told Reuters that sources in Palmyra had confirmed that the Arch of Triumph, a jewel in the exquisite collection of ruins in the oasis city, had been blown up.

    Their ambition is to show ruins for everything not Islam. It’s in the Quran according to Mr. Spencer. He quotes chapter and verse.

    These cretins need to be destroyed by any means possible.

    I’ll bet Soetoro and the lib/progs secretly love this. Talk about re-writing history! Bet every time ISIS blows up an historical site they drool!

      Pam – You are an assumptive fool who needs to remove her head from her bigoted ass. You have no idea who you belittle every time you open your mouth – the disease of the right is ignorance and bigotry- shame on you.

        I’m sorry. I’m still new to these “comment boards”. I didn’t realize they were supposed to be used to make “assumptive” personal attacks on other commenters.
        I’ve read both of Soetoro’s “alleged” auto-biographies. If they are to be believed, the man ABSOLUTELY HATES THIS COUNTRY. If you start with that premise, then go back and look at pretty much EVERYTHING HE HAS DONE, it all makes perfect sense. Hence, my post.
        Now, if we want to talk disease, in my experience, the “disease” of the left is chronic emotional immaturity. When someone disagrees with them or things don’t go their way, their standard response is:
        “It’s not fair. You’re just a mean old bigot, racist, homophobe, etc., etc., ad nauseam.”

    They will destroy everything that is non Islamic, they will destroy anything that may threaten, or cause a questioning of their so-called religion.

    This is what happens when mad rabid dogs get explosives. My dog says I shouldn’t equate them with any thinking creature.

    Surprise, surprise, surprise. The stupid shall be with us always.
