ISIS destroying history – The face of pure dumbness

WARNING: Sad footage to watch.

In Mosel ISIS is destroying ancient past, books, statues.

Mosul museum was the second largest in Iraq, a national museum considered one of the largest in the world. The museum was established in 1952 and hosted a large amount of artifacts from the Nineveh province area, famous for its Assyrian, Roman and Islamic archeological sites. – See more.

With destroying ancient past, they destroy what defines them. Since without past, there is no context and thus no identity. This destruction is the purest form of dumbness, fear of the world and clueless how to understand it. Socrates once said: The unexamined life is not worth living. We can only shed tears for the lost of these treasures. (See earlier).
