Sphinx Destruction Imminent If One Man Has His Way

For years, the Sphinx and various pyramids around Egypt have offered few clues as to their origin; it has been up to us to decipher how the magnificent structures were built in ancient times and why they are such perfect examples of construction…and why they are still standing today, thousands of years later. They still draw tourists, archaeologists, and locals who wish to pay their respects every day; however, that could all change if one man has his say.

Morgan Al-Gohary, a radical jihadi sheikh, says he would destroy the Sphinx and the pyramids without hesitation if he could, in order to rid the Earth of what he calls “pagan idols”. Unfortunately, Al-Gohary has already succeeded in destroying other artifacts, such as the Bamyan Buddhas in Afghanistan, and says he would have no hesitation when it came to taking down the famous Egyptian monuments despite the fact that many think they were placed there for all of mankind, and not just for one religion.

“Everything, if it is a pagan statue or idol, that is worshiped or suspected to be worshipped, or is worshipped by one person on Earth, must be destroyed. We, or someone else, must destroy it,” he said in a recent television interview. He added that “all Muslims are charged with applying the teachings of Islam to remove such idols.”

“You don’t know the history of your country well,” writer Nabil Sharaf Al-Din, who was also a guest of the show, said. “Those pharaohs were the first to know religion in the world. The Sphinx and the pyramids are mankind’s heritage and not the property of Egyptians alone. They are the property of all mankind.”

Al-Gohary still sticks by his belief; however, he is not the first extremist to announce a demolition plan for the structures. A few before him have tried to take down the Sphinx and have failed, becoming the stuff of legends as word of mouth traveled quickly in ancient times that devastating floods and plagues would stop and destroy the person who tried to tamper with the monuments.

    Shoot that damn idiot,please. What will it take for mankind to realize religion is the problem. Men the likes of this idiot are going to be the end of mankind if we allow them, what ignorance.

    • joe

      as jesse ventura has said” religion is for the weak minded”

      • mike

        Why isn’t he in church 24/7 then?

      • Tony Cossio

        Beliving in God does not make you weak minded. Quoating a ProWrestler/Politician/Conspiracy theorist does.

        • Dave

          “Religion is for the weak minded”. Not believing in God. An 11 word comment and you couldn’t even read it correctly. Why do you need a church to help you follow God/Jesus? That makes you weak minded. You think belonging to a religion and going to church brings you closer to God? Read the bible on your own without the brainwashing of a religion. When your mind clears you will see that religion has nothing to do with God. Its nothing but a “Business”. Yes, Jesse has stated he is Atheist, but he has never criticized anyone for their belief in “God”. God and religion are 2 separate issues.

    • jordan

      Hes an idiot and needs to be dealt with one way or another. they have stood for thousands of years so the hell with and his ideals.

  • http://yahoo Rev John W Turner

    This man is a stone idiot. What kind of stupid comes over people like this?? He is the reason that gives his so-called religion the black eye it now has. His kind of thinking would blow up the images at Mt. Rushmore. Unreal and flat ignorant.

  • Rob M

    Oh, it’s one of them, a nut case extremist.

    • ADAM


  • mike

    Too bad the guy doesn’t know that his religion is actually the false and Pagan worship. What kind of God or religion destroys monuments, history, kills the innocent and forces its people to follow it as the only way?

  • Pedro P. Castillo

    I thik that the man who want destroy the Sphinx it is crazy. The guardians of all pyramids must take in serious the menace and put behind bars such maniacal.

  • carlos

    Flippin’ muslim pig! We should destroy their holy sites because anything deemed religious goes against what evolution has taught us!

    And if supposedly coming into contact with pork is a sin and can send them to hell is true. There’s a pig farm not too far from me and I can teach some pigs how to rape and sodomize these muslim scum!

    There is no god of any kind, and all muslims are child molesting homos!

  • Tim

    With all respect, I feel that the title isn’t the very knowledgeable. Any one person has the ability to do damage. It’s whether they’ve done so or have made actions leading to such horrible things that would be worthy for a news title like that.

    I don’t know what runs through the mind of Rep. Peter King, but I’m sure he would think of something just as bad. But of course, no one would put that into the title of their story

  • Brian Kacey

    This is Islam extremism, coming to a town near you. From honor killings to Jihads, it’s only going to get worse.

  • David Kaplan

    This man is not a Muslim, he is an uneducated, self-centered moron. Apparently anybody can be a sheikh. The senseless killing in the name of God (or Allah, or whatever your name for God) will never end until scum like this are dead.

  • Ross Kardon

    If this idiot gets his way and the Sphinx and the Pyramids are destroyed, it will be the end of Egypt’s tourism industry. With the Sphinx and the Pyramids gone, nobody will want to visit Egypt, because Egypt will then have nothing offer tourists!

    It is tragic that religion would give anyone the insanity to want to destroy their own country’s national heritiage.

  • Henry Valdez

    If he is true to his word, he’ll start with the dome of the rock and the rock it self as the dome is not a mosque but a shrine and is worshipped

    • WaveyCrocket

      The dome of the rock doesnt have a face, moron.

      • Chris

        Wow, do you have a bad remark for everybody?

  • Domenica

    Who is going to pay for the demolition ??

  • Mark

    It seems to me, that in trying to defend against idol worship, his very actions would lead him to be “idolized” by some. “A few before him have tried to take down the Sphinx and have failed, becoming the stuff of legends ….” “Becoming the stuff of legends” places them in a similar category. Please someone point this out to Morgan Al-Gohary.

  • Muslim Hater

    Well, this muslim dude isn’t much different than republicans in the united states. I think we should banish both (muslims and repubs) to Madagascar or some other island.

    • Queen Anne

      You know it would be nice to do the same thing to liberals by shipping them off to an island by themselves. Seriously, destroying the history of these fascinating people would be a detriment to the history of man.

    • John

      @Muslim Hater That is just a great comment coming from someone who is apparently a democrat and a member of the part of tolerance, way to show your party’s true colors!

      • Muslim Hater

        @John – its called sarcasm moron. I wouldn’t exactly call the Republicans the party of tolerance. Go back to elementary school.

  • l

    Thank goodness planet Nibiru is here. It is time to purify the Earth.

  • Tom

    An ignorant, bigoted man who wants the rest of us to be as ignorant and bigoted as he is.

    • Sean

      Obviously he is a Republican…

      • http://paintedseascapes.com richard lawler

        To Sean: He must be a Republican, if he wants to blow up the Sphinx, cause it takes some brains to work with Explosives. The average Democrat I know, could not blow himself up with a match and a stick of dynamite !! And if he did manage to do it,he would blame it on Bush.

  • Semore Butts

    Nobody (that we know of at least) knows the origins of these monuments in terms of why they were built, who built them, when they were built, etc. How can this man claim to know that the purpose of them is for worship? These are structures that link human kind to their ancient past. Any attempt to do destroy them should be met with severe punishment. Who does this man think he is???

    • http://paintedseascapes.com richard lawler

      to seymoreButts..the man thinks he is IS gods spokes person. He is a religious Maniac,(every religion has them) but it seems the Muslims have the market cornered on that kind of fanatacism. I view the Muslim religion as a festering wound on the body of Humanity. I HOPE the majority of them just live out their lives peacefully , and it is only the Extreme Fanatics the West has to deal with. I hope that this is the case, but i have my doubts about that to.I do think ,in time it WILL be us against them..Sad.

  • Robert B.

    What a nutcase. Over half of Egypt’s GDP comes from tourism. If the pyramids and Sphinx are destroyed the over half of their economy is gone. These Muslim extremists may be happy living in the stone age, but I would be willing to bet the great majority of Egypt’s population is not.

  • WaveyCrocket

    @Carlos, my Mexican friend, you are the lowest of the low, the non believer, no faith in a higher power, I feel sorry for your mother. She should have swallowed you. Only idiots believe in evolution, that’s why I assume you believe in it, right?

    @Mike there are many well documented miracles that prove Islam is true, maybe if you did some non biased research you would understand what over a billion people in the world do.

    Do I think the pyramids or the sphinx should be destroyed? No, but that is up to the Egyptian people and Government. Shocking that so many westerners are appalled at the thought of destroying the Sphinx but don’t dare to talk about how western Europeans shot the nose off the sphinx because it resembled an African nose, not wanting to give Africans credit for acomplishing such a great architectural masterpiece. Then we get movies with Cleopatra as a white woman, and Jesus Christ as a blond hair blue eyed european looking man. SMH

    • Beastro

      Well said my brotha…. You took the words right out of my mouth. Now because of the religion I believe in I think those are pagan idols, but because of my heritage and my human nature it makes me happy that Africans were the rulers of the world back then, and they also created those mind-blowing masterpieces, that some races wont believe or they cover it up with hollywood garbage and destroy artifacts.

    • http://none R

      @Wavey Crocket – Only idiot believe in evolution?

      Are you high? Or are you intentionally that obtuse?

    • JK

      Wikipedia has a note that an Arab historian in the 15th century wrote that a Muslim cleric in the 1300s pried the nose off the Sphinx because local tribes were worshiping the monument to increase their harvests. Not that Wikipedia is the end-all source for history or anything, but stories of Westerners (like Napolean) shooting off the nose are apparently unfounded if you believe earlier historical accounts.

    • Wowyourcrazy

      @waveycrocket I hope your not serious? I hope that your response is just a joke. The fact that your using a computer to reply to this article not only proves the advance of science and technology, but also human evolution. Denying evolution is like accepting that the world is flat, that the sun rotates around the earth, and that the earth is the only planet in the universe. You say that their is evidence of proof, but the evidence is written by men who did not know science. If you were to travel back in time and the only thing you had was a gun, you would be considered a wizard (god). A lot of the stories that come from the past are ways of explaining things that our ancestors did not know.

      I’m not trying to deny you your right to believe in God, but what if evolution was gods plan. The bible said he built earth in 7 days, but a day for god can be years for mankind. How do you know that cloning, medical advances, and technology aren’t gods plan for human beings. How do you know that when you speak against these things you aren’t actually speaking against god. What if god created other beings for his own reason. Just remember the opinions you have accepted are not yours, but of men that came thousands of years before you. If god exists and he is as powerful as you believe, than what right do you have to “know” what god wants.

      Also, I do think it is important to understand our past and I do believe that their should be “world” treasures. Even some of the treasures we have in the US should be preserved for not only us but for future generations.

    • Rick

      Actually idiots are the ones that dont believe in evolution. Its been proven by science and genetics. Maybe you should do the research. evolution is happening everyday in every generation in a very small way. Its natures way of adapting to its environment. And to think humans just appeared one day and arent part of the rest of the living things on this planet is naive and ignorant. I would like to believe that miracles are possible but most can be explained by science. Science can be proven, religion can’t, its all based on faith. People need to stop pushing their religion on everyone else, thats the biggest problem in the world. Civilization would of been better off if no religion would of ever been created. Its caused more death to this world than anything else in history. Believe in what you want but dont push it onto others. Let them believe what they want and keep it to themselves.

    • sean m.

      wavey, wake the fuck up!!!!! there is no all knowing creator floating in the heavens that created complex being such as humans. EVOLUTION, although not necessarily 100% correct is the basis for all life on earth. you’re a mental midget.

  • Dean Wilson

    This guy is an idiot! He has the same mentality as the Spainiards did when they came to South America and destroyed thousands of years of history because they thought it was “Satanic”. People of such small minds should be confined or shot.

  • Lp

    Someone wrote that the Sphinx belongs to the Egyptian people and they can do what they want to it. NO. It now belongs to HUMANITY and needs to be preserved for posterity.

    • WaveyCrocket

      In that case Mount Rushmore also belongs to humanity and if over half the world want to destroy it, should we let them? You’re an idiot, it is the Egyptian peoples property just like our landmarks are ours. I would break your jaw for saying something so stupid. moron.

      • Jim

        The fact that you would “break someone’s jaw” for what they “said” shows just how stupid YOU really are. Let me guess your comeback….”I’ll break your jaw too.” LOL. Moron.

        • Bert

          The fact is that the mountain chosen to be Mount Rushmore was the 2nd most holy place in the Black Hills after Bear Butte. It was called the 7 Grandfathers. When a young warrior would go on his spirit vision he would visit the 7 Grandfathers. Gutzon Borglum was aware of this when this mountain was chosen. That said the idea that a man or group of men think their beliefs are so strong that they can destroy a 4-5 thousand year old masterpiece that 100,000+ people built over 10 years can be justified. Fanaticism is gone wild everywhere with talk of destroying the last ancient wonder of the world and secession in the United States because of reelection of a black President.

  • t

    Ih he wants to destroy something that people worship, why don’t he start with the Kardashians.

    • WaveyCrocket

      because he and we all fap to them 😐

      • carlos

        What’s more is that your perverted and crass comments is proof that when it comes to the topic of science and religion, you are the last person anyone should take serious.

        Typical religious uneducated hypocrite. Stay in that prison you call a church and remain a slave with no honor and dignity.

        We have enough filth poisoning our youth. We don’t need you spreading your virus!

  • Beastro

    Well said my brotha…. You took the words right out of my mouth. Now because of the religion I believe in I think those are pagan idols, but because of my heritage and my human nature it makes me happy that Africans were the rulers of the world back then, and they also created those mind-blowing masterpieces, that some races wont believe or they cover it up with hollywood garbage and destroy key artifacts.

    • max

      let’s make something clear.. blacks didn’t built all that. You fellas are intoxicating yourselves with such moronic beliefs. There have been enough DNA testing all showing that the modern day egyptians are the descendants of the ancient egyptians. Stick to the culture you have, don’t try to claim something you’re not related to. There’s no conspiracy theory.

      • Beastro

        First of all don’t argue when you sound stupid and ignorant. You also proved my point about what I said earlier about other races covering history up. If you do your research you would find out that even “you people” have found out in the past that buried within those pryamids are pictures and countless statues of black people, Kings, Queens, etc. Makes sure you learn before you teach ignorant one…. I bet you think I voted for Obama too…. lol

        • Nick

          Just because their skin isn’t bright white doesn’t mean that they are black you idiot lol There are more than just black and white people lol

          • Beastro

            You Gentiles need to study and do your homework and stop listening to what public education teaches you.

  • elmer

    This person is a prime example of why there are still wars because of idiots who believe their “religion” or beliefs are the only ones that matter. Someone please put a bullet in this bozos head and all others like him. I am a firm believer in freedom of choice, religion, speech, etc… but not when those choices/beliefs infringe and seek to destroy others

  • richard arnold

    fucking idiot

  • carlos


    Sir, 100’s to 1,000’s of peer-reviewed books and articles by 100’s to 1000’s of scientists who have spent 100’s to 1,000 of combined hours, days and years combing over countless pieces of evidence that confirms evolution as true empirical history and the god of the gaps to be disappearing. Yet delusional religious people such as yourself hang on to one book and show your faith as unquestionable “proof” of a divine existence.

    You keep thinking that the earth is 10,000 years old while the educated follow the scientific and historical consensus.

    You are as like minded as the ignorant muslim puke that wants to destroy this piece of magnificent history.

  • Dan

    Al-Gohary needs to be removed from this earth.
    When the hell are people going to learn that Islam is a virus and needs to be cut out like the cancer it is.

    • William

      When I think of the word Muslim, I think of murder, hate abuse, false religon. In the Bible, GOD talks about love, salvation, careing. You find non of these in the Muslim religon. Jesus saves!

      • carlos

        Excuse me, but the Bible is just as filled with hate, racism and murder as much as the Koran.

        Maybe if you actually read your “good book” and not pull things out of your rear you would see they are compatible.

        • Justin

          Im wit u Carlos…all these “Christans” be talkin out their ass alot….

          • Nick

            You people are ignorant- the black eye of America. The Bible is not full of hate, racism, and murder. IF you think it is, then you haven’t read it and your solely basing it off what OTHERS have said about it. If that’s what you took away from reading the Bible, then you are simply ignorant and missed the entire point. Guess what? I’m not Christian either.

  • howie

    another prime example of idiots acting on behalf of their own religious dictates! suppose my religon said i needed to hack off his ngads because i was a moronic zealot…would i be any worse then him? hmmm, lets find out!

  • Justin

    The funny thing is Jesus said and did similar things….but cant see all the people who have a problem with this would have a problem with Jesus saying such things….

  • Ramirez

    When Yahushua returns He will destroy all those pagan idols, and there won’t be shit anyone can say or do about it…Can’t wait for his return.

    • Mike

      Jesus IS a Pagan Idol! I see him hanging around on a stick everywhere.

      • Amen

        He is already here. Look up in the sky. The sun of god rides the clouds everyday. It is the life bringer.

  • Jim

    What if he finds out that someone worships HIM is he going to kill himself to rid the world of the abomination?

    • carlos

      Ooh good point and well played!

    • gary

      OK…..tell me again about how the muslim religion is not planning on taking over the world and how all they want is to “just get along and be left alone”!

      • Jason

        Again, sounds a lot like Christianity. Oh right but I forgot, ALL Christians are civil folk



    • Chadro

      Noemi, you may be what is wrong with America.

    • Jason

      You’re a tool, go crawl back under your rock and stay there

  • Amen

    Everytime you say amen in prayer you give respect to amen ra=egyptian diety. Islam came to egypt long after the pyramid and other structures were there. Understanding the nature that lies in all of us represents the sphinx (thats for all you ignorant trolls). Egyptian science is the mother and father to most religions. Moses was taught by this culture and jesus studied there. The washinton monument is an oblese which is egyptian. Stop watching football and family guy and read a book before you open your computer and start uttering trollism. And for master troll at the top of the commentary it was us melanated people that built the motherf#@ker. Hard to believe. Can you imagine what the world would be like if slavery and european greed did not find its place on this earth. Now its quiet time for all trolls. The Blackman is God!!!!!!

    • debbie

      AMEN at the end of a prayer means “so be it”.

      • Amen

        Uttering amen is a mantra to Amen ra. They lied to you. Just like holloween is to honor the dead on all saints day and not to collect candy.

    • Historian

      “Can you imagine what the world would be like if slavery and european greed did not find its place on this earth.”

      You do realize that it was slave-labor that built the pyramids, etc., right?

      • Meeh

        No record exists to indicate that slave labor built the pyramids. Plenty of records exist of payments and other transactions with a working class of people, some of whom even went on strikes over working conditions and won.

        This is not to say there may not have been slaves involved in building the pyramids, but there are no currently known records of such. Egyptians were serious record keepers.

        • Jason

          I think we all know that slaves DID build and died building these monuments. Slaves were really all the rage back then

  • Martha

    There are many ancient structures in cultures which no longer exist. That we treasure them for their historical value does not mean we idolize or worship them. The same Allah whom the jihadists revere today gave someone the ability to create the wonders of the ancient world. I have been fortunate to visit these structures and if nothing else, their shear size will humble a mere mortal. Any nation’s history is filled with deeds and thoughts that are less “enlightened” than exist today; if we obliterate the past we lose a lot of lessons in how we arrived where we are.


    It appears that the extremists is declaring himself an IDOL;as he worships who he thinks himself to be. Will he also destroy himself? He doesn’t deserve to have any power.


    these are beautiful works of ancient civilizations and to destroy them just seems………………………………………..dumb

  • joe kaminski

    He is very wrong and for one reason !!!!. NO ONE ANYWHERE is worshiping the Sphinx or the Pyramids. No one. There is not even any religion dedicated to them in any way. Those pose no threat as a conflict to any religion because they are not serving in a idealistic way by anyone or any religion. There is not any proof they ever were worshiped. The only thing that is a fact about them is they are purely scientific historic locations of research into the past today. They serve only that purpose. There is No reason whatsoever to destroy them.

    • Sasha

      Here Is Your Kemet Worshiper. Leave The Lion ALONE. It Is A Time Keeper, And If Humans Decide To Destroy It The Heavens Will Set Egypt On Fire. Mark My Words.

  • number6

    take heed!! this doesn’t sound like a religious rant–it sounds more like a call out for terrorists to mobilize. it’s very sad that they can use religion in this fashion, but even more disconcerting that they are publicizing hints about the kind of target…and the media is happy to help them promote it :(

    • Bob McClain

      The Emerald Tablets say that Thoth the Atlantean built the pyramid himself….and the pyramid is not a religious monument, it is a geometric small scale version of the Earth….The missing capstone is or was at one time buried beneath the sphinx and is another smaller scale version of the earth. Sacred Geometry bitches..

  • DJ

    Glen Beck called it exactly.

  • Lewis Griffin

    People have always been afraid of the unknown. The secret of the Sphinx just might show that they have been wasting their time all these centuries. Therefore they want it destroyed.

    • Chadro

      True that

  • http://Yahoo Doug

    Another wacko, this idiot thinks he can change history by destroying the works of our predessors. Study it admire it and try to learn from it.

  • Scott

    Morgan Al-Gohary is what this world can live without. Destroying things is all these extremists know. It is quite sad these extremist people focus on destroying what this world has come to enjoy and love. Only because they do not agree with it. It will be a good day if this stupidity will ever stop.

  • Mitchelde

    If this nutjob even gets close..its time for all-out war. These pagan idols as he describes.. are the ruins of past civilizations ..the history of man..not even the history of Egypt..but again..the history of man,,they belong to all of us.
    This is another reason why artifacts presently being stored by museums and other collectors around the world should never ever be returned back to Egypt. The country would have lost or destroyed those artifacts decades ago if not having been saved by museums and private collectors. This is the perfect example.

    • mike hunt

      MITCHELDE! Your ancestors went around the to rape and pillage. For centuries your people have desecrated other cultures and civilisations. and replace it with what. deMOCKracy!!!!!

  • Rick Moose

    I hereby publicly proclaim that I worship Morgan Al-Gohary, that he alone is the great one, that he alone is worthy of my praise. What he proclaims is the only truth and his words are law and must be obeyed.
    There. Now would someone please hand him a gun so that he can rid the world of the false idol that must be destroyed.

  • Ari Ben Gordon

    like ART We have to admit that like ”Van Go” the paintings became more real as ones PURPOSE became more clearer – although in the Sphink is basically the only structure as within the Head features is the only area capable of modern struction from small explosions ALTHOUGH no one would ever blow it up FOR no one knows the trye meaning of the sphink – except Me

  • Behrad

    i just wanted to tell you all how delighted i am to see the comments posted beneath this article. (i can’t say the article in itself was interesting to me). had this been a yahoo article, the comments section would have been bombarded with war propaganda against radical islamists and filled with trash-talk about how america has superior fire power and americans are the only human beings deserving the right to live! this website made me feel a lot safer about the general public in america today. peace

    • Chadro

      Right on

      • dale

        Im american and proud of it! I DO NOT PROMOTE war and I actually do not care who is the most powerful country I just want to STOP with the wars and let other countries live the way they want to live… who are we to tell anyone how to live? we are absolutely NO A PERFECT COUNTRY, SO I SAY FIX OUR COUNTRY AND LEAVE EVERYONE ELSE ALONE

  • charles

    Gary said it…the muslim religion revolves around hate and intolerance…no matter what they try and tell you(extremist or not).if you do not follow their beliefs they want you dead; simple as that.

    • Chadro

      You sound ignorant and hate filled, know wonder Christians have a bad name. You Think Christ would preach about destroying others, or taking out certain people. I don’t, that is crazy.Everyone has the right to there own beliefs. Violence IS NEVER the answer.

      • charles

        I’m not a christian you bozo. No matter how much you want to deny it; muslims are filled with hate for everything that’s not muslim. The sooner you learn to hate them the way they hate you(considering your not muslim) the better. You said it too… “everyone has a right to their own beliefs” and “violence is never the answer” Tell that to your muslim friends.

    • Jason

      Sounds like the same thing that was done to the Native Americans, all in the name of Christ. Give me a break, religious zealots are what bring down the reputation of some religions. I say “THE WORLD WOULD BE BETTER WITHOUT CHRISTIANITY”. But what do I know…..

      • Jessie

        I’ll answer that for you.
        You are an Idiot.
        The story didnt have anything to do with Christianity.
        Nothing happned to the Native Americans “because of Christ”.
        And when you become the “boy toy” of one of the camel herder’s I hope you remember your stupid remark

        • DJP

          maybe you should read up on the christian discovery doctrine. all religion is a sham, to have socio-economic or civic decision-making revolve around ANY religion makes that opinion/option null and void. i personally dismiss anyone’s input if they base it on their faith.

    • dale

      I agree with you buddy! I am an american 38 year old male and I have NO HATE for any muslim person just the extremeists and any MORON that thinks the same way as Naomi is a complete idiot! and they are the ones that create such hate because these idiots breed and teach this to their idiot children that now believe ALL muslims are bad which is complete BULL IT IS THE EXTREMEISTS THAT NEED TO BE KILLED NOT AL MUSLIMS… some of the coolest ppl i have known in my life came from Iraq and were muslim! GREAT GREAT PPL

  • Chadro

    Noemi, I don’t agree with hate. Thinking about the destruction of the Spinx makes me sick. But to say all Muslims should be killed, that is even worse. Everyone has a right to believe what they want. The Muslims should not persecute and try to change Christians, The Christians should let the Muslims worship who they want and not persecute or try and change them. Hate breeds hate. Try and change peoples mind with love and not hate. Quit focusing on our differences and focus on the positives,and what we can learn from each other if we work together.

    Islamic invaders into Old India has destroyed countless temples that took decades to generations to build just like that, all in the name of Islam religion. And they killed millions upon millions who refused to convert over there.
    Since the destruction of Bamyan Buddha, I have been concerned about Egyptian Pyramids, Sphinx, and many other idols over there. It would be a great tragedy, if they were to destroy them.

  • Threebagger

    This is not news. Followers of the state religion of Saudi Arabia (Wahhabism) have been advocating this nonsense for decades. Wahhabis are responsible for most worldwide muslim terrorism for decades. No group on earth is more dangerous than the wahhabis. For years they have had access to millions of Saudi petro dollars. Read about wahhabis as much as you can. If you care about the western world you need to become educated concerning wahhabism.

    Religion is the evil in this world. It alone is responsible for more death and destruction than any European greed. Think of the crusades, the inquistions, etc. ALL religions should be abolished, that way we are ALL EQUAL and no one type/person or belief will be better than another.

      Actually nationalism is the cause of more war related deaths than any other reason.

      • ray

        incorrect sir. White supremacy and the system of racism is the cause.

        • MIchael Jor

          Apologies to disagree sir, but it is you that are incorrect. The roots of nearly every global conflict have been in nationalism. In some cases, seriously ill individuals and/or groups have combined nationalism and racism into one thing. But I must disagree with your comment above.

      Virtually ever major war that was fought in the 20th century had nationalism or race at their heart. Also, think of the 20 million that Stalin was responsible for killing and the tens of millions who perished because of Mao in China. World War II was not a religious war either. Hitler’s hatred of the Jews was racially, not religiously motivated. The number of people who died as the result of religion is a fraction of a fraction of the number murdered for non-religious reasons (in addition to nationalism or in combination with it, it could be argued that militant atheism has killed more people than religion.)

        religion is #1. there is no disputing that. you have an imaginary friend, you’re crazy.. if people share their imaginary friend, it’s religion.

  • My Word

    As a Muslim here in America, “ya’ll need to sit your azz down, and leave those antiquities alone” Clean up your own house, your own life, because tomorrow isn’t promised to anyone. Damn extreme idiots, fools just mentally stuck. I don’t have to apologize for al-Islam, these people do not resemble Prophet Muhammed in any way shape form or fashion.

      WHAT ARE YOU TALKING ABOUT? AFRICAN LANDMARK?? yes egypt is in africa but they are their own country so they are an egyptian landmark!!

      • Realtooreal

        dale, your taking offense to the pyramids, Sphinx and other construction marvels being in Africa, exposes the same type of mentality or as not being far from that of Morgan Al-Gonecrazy (or I should say Gohary) and the racists who destroyed the nose of the Sphinx. As a christian tourist in Egypt during the latter part of the past century, I was appalled of how many Egyptians did not know they were Africans, including my guide who was the same guide for the famous American author Alex Haley. Those like you dale, who deem it necessary to indoctrinate and/or destroy for superiority posturing, selfish reasons, hatred, fear or religion; all need to take a ‘chill pill!’

  • ray

    I Honestly Think this is all a bunch of bull. I strongly believe they wanna tear down the spinx bc of the huge amount of ancient african greatness that comes along with that and the pyramids. I mean seriously, why would any loving person wanna tear down that great great african landmark? theres no excuse for this, its just pure hatered, i sincerly hope the african ppl fight back and end this madness bc americans dont care enough to see the truth and stop that devil.

    • Realtooreal

      Ray, I totally agree with you. As a christian tourist,I rode around the Sphinx on a camel; visited with respect, a Muslim gravesite; sat at the base of the Gisa pyramids; attended the Cairo museum, where an extended exhibit of King Tut remains on display plus an approximately 40-foot statute of King Ramses(sp) were among many other historically noted events and exhibits, in 1998.

      During that time the entire Sphinx sculpture was being dug out of the ground, revealing it is one huge boulder! Word had it, some racist fools had cut-off/destroyed the nose of the artifact because it denoted the greatness of African craftsmanship. …Now, many more years later, we have this ‘hater’?!

  • Kami Rush

    Such hatred, so sad. As Christ said…and the greatest of these is LOVE.

  • Jeffreymark Snyder

    The Sphinx is a Cat Man and a clue to our known direction to be not a Dog but a Cat, God spelled backwards is Dog, that’s the Mystery. the 3 pyrimids are (The Father, The Son, The Holy Spirit) and they line up to Orions Belt the window in the large pyrimid at his Belt which is The trunk of the tree (Tree of Life) original sin was Adultrey & homo-sexualism. I heard on the discovery channel that there could be a Bible (Ancient) burried under The Sphinx. See: Dog Script. In Bible (Rev.22:15&Isaiah 56:10-12.) Stop abortion and go through “The Fire” !
    to live on the planet. Water, Fire,Ice.

    Kill him before he harms the sphinx or the pyramids. Violence, contrary to popular belief, DOES solve problems.

    • MIchael Jor

      In cases like his, it does. There is no other way to stop a complete madman from spreading ideas of hate and in the case of this article, stupidity. Morgan Al-Gohary needs to be told to shut up – preferable with a very strong blow to the head ( beware the hollow sound).

  • MIchael Jor

    In my opinion and mine only, the people of the world should declare a “fatwa” on this man, Morgan Al-Gohary. The level of ignorance is so astoundingly high it is impossible to describe. Typically I am all about anyone can believe anything they like unless they impose those beliefs on others. Other world events aside for just a moment, the mindset to destroy HISTORY and what we can learn from it, I am appalled to say, should just be put down. He couldn’t be jailed, he couldn’t be educated or convinced. Someone with a brain please leave his body unwrapped buried under a meter of sand somewhere near the Sphinx and “other idols.”

  • FJW

    Wow, this guy is trip. Sounds like he has a brain like a toddler checking under the bed for monsters at bedtime. Nobody really worships those gods anymore. It’s just ancient history. What a complete and utter moron to think that this would be a threat to him now. I say lock him up and force him to make shoes for the needy.

    “Everything, if it is a pagan statue or idol, that is worshiped or suspected to be worshipped, or is worshipped by one person on Earth, must be destroyed” this is vanity to even think you are ordained to do this. Islam is the first religion to ordain religious freedom and so there is no way any state or spiritual movement can control the minds and faith of any person at all ever. If u hope to destroy the legacy of “paganism” by destroying monuments and artifacts you are severely misguided, according to the teachings only one god can place or remove a thought or feeling from a human beings mind..Will you destroy yourself or your home if a pagan or child were to take it for worship? It would be simole to find someone willing to worship you one need only look toward your spiritually blind followers. Its my understanding that the Holy Prophet himself ordered the detruction of idols housed in the Kaaba. When Mecca was liberated from chaos. Did he also order the destruction of idols and statues throughout the world? I think not…When the muslims became a dominant culture did they ravage the earth in search of idols and monuments to destroy? I have not heard of it. I believe that the Kaaba was a special case whereas it was originally constructed by Abraham for the worship of his one god. So it was justified in that they were clearing out debris that had accumulated within that mosque effectively restoring it to its original condition. This would not be the casde in the destruction of the Buddha and or the epic momuments of Egypt and other parts of the earth. Respect the truth that these existed long before the Qur’an, and I think even before Abraham was born into the world. I believe Allah will not reward you for desecrating the spiritual freedom of humanity, and I assure you that myself and my children and children’s children will stand with any who would eradicate the teachings your sect from the face of the earth if it succeeds or continues to attempt to destroy the Sphinx,Pyramids and any other relics of the intellectual wealth of mankind for such an irrational and hopeless purpose as to blind the people with your misguided spiritual lies..and I declare that what you teach is not Islam in its full understanding but actually a vain thirst for notoriety and power.

  • Erthman

    I think that enough damage has been done to the forefathers of our entire civilization. These zealots have stolen stone to build their places of worship, their civil buildings and their egos. Enough is enough. These Kemetan buildings are works of MANKIND. The determination of ancient peoples who cared not about themselves, but their nation, their neighbors, their children, and their children’s children should be left for our children’s children to enjoy… I mean no offense to any religion or creed, but these are the facts!

  • clayton

    the taliban the alqada are the one that need to go they are putting things in peoples minds that make no sense at all just a bunch or crack heads with nothing better to do they make up things and say people are doing wrong they really do not have religen just bad story tellers

    If Egypt didn’t have these historical monuments they’d be even worse off money-wise than they are now. Having just spent one month in Egypt I can say from first hand experience that the country has nothing else going for it. I’ve been harrassed, man-handled, conned, scammed and abused. The pyramids, the sphinx and luxor are what made it all worthwhile!

  • Lou

    He says that they are pagan idols because they are centuries old. What about their idols? According to the Islamic religion, Mohammed came down on a white horse. They still worship that horse too. They worship pagan idols too. They worship and look forward to the 13th Imam. He, in actuality, is the anti-Christ. So, that makes them devil worshipers. Islam, just like the Egyptian religions back then, is a cult. The only TRUE religion is Christianity. It is the ONLY way to get to heaven. Their religion will only take them to hell. Jesus is the only way to heaven. So, let’s get rid of Muslims and their idols instead!!

  • smoothmoney

    go ahead, who cares anyway. let the idiots in the middle east destroy everything. they have no cultural sensitivity or profound intelligence or respect for the universe. let them all plod along in their 15th century mentality. zzzzzzzzzzzzz

  • SunManPatu

    If I take his theory word for word then after I destroy all the idols, I’d also have to destroy my house because I might worship that. I might have to kill the birds, nature, sun, moon, earth because i might also worship that. Think about it.It is human nature to worship SOMETHING.
