The Hollywoodesque villains of ISIS have stepped up their efforts to demonize themselves by smashing up ancient statues and relics in a Mosul museum. They also confiscated thousands of books and burned them. The creepy wierdos of ISIS can’t seem to get enough bad press so they continuously film themselves engaging in atrocious behaviour.
The Daily Mail reports:
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.
One of the items, depicting a winged-bull Assyrian protective deity, dates back to the 9th century B.C.
A man shown in the video said the items were being destroyed because they promoted idolatry.
‘The Prophet ordered us to get rid of statues and relics, and his companions did the same when they conquered countries after him,’ the unidentified man said.
