#1 The lazy ba$tards already ripped off all the beautiful white limestone coverings to build Cairo. Can't they just leave it at that? They also volunteered to deconstruct the Red Pyramid back in the 1800s or so if I remember right.

#4 I can no longer find Amos and Andy re-runs on my TeeVee either..... come to think about it. Perhaps there is some sort of ideological connection.

#5 These people are not going to rest until they have destroyed every single culture on this planet but their own.

#6 They have a culture*?
*Excepting the bacterial one.

#8 The Pyramids don't worry me much. I'm far more concerned about the treasures of the Egyptian Museum. Take 50 heavily armed man and the treasures of Tutankhamun would be gone before we'd even have a chance to react.
Wouldn't hurt to have a rescue plan ready if the situation worsens.

#9 I've been predicting this since the Taliban blew up the Buddhas. Too bad I was right this time. I expect the treasures of Luxor to go first and the treasures of the museums as they are easiest to destroy.
The pyramids will take some doing but they'll get there eventually.
Have we decided on the lowest level of scum to compare these "people" to? Even pond scum has some redeeming value.

#10 These boneheads only know how to destroy. They haven't build anything in centuries other than a murderous religion.

#12 Shovel ready for the vast unemployed of Egypt. If they working, they're too busy to revolt [again]. /sarc off
Haven't we seen this movie already were disturbing long buried antiquities unleashes unimaginable horrors. It couldn't happen to a better set of characters. Pass the popcorn.

#14 Islamists are to hate idols. And idol worshippers. They believe that anything that is made from material, can be seen that represents diety should be destroyed. They have been doing this for 1600 years. Pyramids, statues, carvings, the Bible...
They believe that one should worship the unseen Allah.

#16 I think Mecca instead of Cairo.

#17 Islam in its current form is a cancer to humanity. It needs to be cut out and the area irradiated.

#18 Seriously, I could see the MB holding the antiqities hostage, demanding payments to not destroy the Pyramids and the various temples, shrines, etc. I can totally see them doing that ... and after shaking down the rest of the world going ahead and doing it anyway.
#19 Well, it's not like they'll have a tourist industry anymore, so they might as well tear them down and build another (insert arabic word for "barrio" here).

#21 Pyramids vs Kaaba... your call

#22 Egyptian pagans built something a thousand or so years before islam that the Muslims could not build today. The pyramids mock them.
It will be nice to see what defense Islam's knee jerk defenders will come up with on this one.

#23 Most Turks in Germany are absolutely convinced that the Hagia Sophia was built by Muslims.

#24 Destroy the sun while you're at it. After all, the Egyptians used to worship it.

#25 Why is it that as soon as current adherents of Islam take charge of a polity they immediately decide to either kill people or destroy something, or both?
In that the future must contain people and things that were not destroyed today, how can this concept of Islam hope to continue into the future? Unless Islam changes its nature, it must be opposed by everything else that hopes to be part of the future. And everything else is a lot.
Take this as a warning, all adherents of Islam reading this now. Choose to change in your own ways, before change comes upon you. The death and destruction you espouse today will redound upon you a thousand times more in the future.
