And yes, if people's reactions to the rape factory is "what is it with men?", I have a serious problem with that. You should too instead of mindless pandering
You know, I'm sure there's an effective way of disagreeing with someone that doesn't belittle their intelligence.

Pagan Rock Carving Destroyed In Morocco: Salafists Blamed

Quote:
Pagan Rock Carving Destroyed In Morocco: Salafists Blamed

Salafists have been blamed for destroying an 8,000 year-old pagan rock carving in Morocco that depicted the Sun as divinity. Local residents blame the group, who they believe is seeking to impose its fundamentalist view of Islam on local residents.

Prominent activist for the indigenous Amazigh people, Ahmed Assid, who is also a member of the Royal Institute for Amazigh Culture (IRCAM), stated that the pagan rock carving, also known as a petroglyph, was destroyed in the Toubkai National Park this week, reports Reuters. Assid stated:

“The information we have received from Amazigh activists in the area suggests Salafists were behind the act.”

While admitting that he has yet to see pictures of the destroyed pagan rock carving, Assid added:

“This act follows a noticeable rise in Salafist activities in predominantly-Amazigh regions of Morocco to enforce a puritanical interpretation of Islam. Their view is that aspects of Amazigh culture, including pre-Islamic heritage, still present today defeat the purpose of the Islamic conquests.”

The Chicago Tribune notes that Morocco generally follows a tolerant form of Sunni Islam, but Salafists rose to prominence following the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States. They have continued expanding since the popular uprising swept the Middle East and North Africa last year.

Officials with the Moroccan culture ministry were not reached for comment about the destroyed pagan rock carving. Assid stated, however, that Moroccan authorities are at least partly to blame for failing to protect Amazigh ancient artifacts and other archaeological sites. Assid stated:

“Some 37,000 Amazigh petroglyphs like the one that was destroyed this week have been smuggled out of Morocco in the past 20 years.”

Along with the destroyed pagan rock carving, Al-Qaeda-linked Islamist fighters shattered earthen tombs and shrines of local saints in Mali’s fabled desert city of Timbuktu using pick-axes, shovels, and hammers. They justified destroying the cultural artifacts by saying that they were defending the purity of their faith against idol worship.
Youtube internet videos to a 8,000 year-old rock carvings... talk about casting a wide net for offending images. No wonder they're so touchy.

There are rumors going around that Islamic fundamentalists want to destroy the Pyramids and the Great Sphinx. Some believe the Islamic Brotherhood in Egypt will do this now since they have power.

That cannot happen. If it ever does, the world's heart will be broken. I know mine will be.

Of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World only the Great Pyramid remains, its destruction would be an incalculable loss to history and future generations.

But it represents idolatry and polytheism so it probably has to go in the minds of these ass clowns.

I wish there was a way to tell people like that off once and for all. Too bad they're often psycho to some degree.

I think that's the problem - there's millions of them. A million people or so not afraid to voice their lack of respect for others. Baffling.

if people want to tell everybody their business and let everybody respond

I don't see how they can expect to control what is said, these days everyone thinks they have a right to say whatever they want. That is the nature of FB and twitter and all the other social networks. No editors, no filters. No quality control, No recourse. No accountability.

She didn't even announce the baby's name or weight or anything else. She had an extremely private pregnancy. So I hardly think she's inviting such comments. That's a pretty extreme attitude, to say that because she's well known she's basically inviting that . She's not Kim K selling every aspect of her life. If Kim K has a baby her baby is innocent too and doesn't deserve that.

It's not about people on Twitter. It's that any human being would stoop that low and say that about a baby. And it's not just on Twitter, it's all over the internet. It's sick. People feel much more free to spew that sickness anonymously. That lovely deleted his or her Twitter account. Nice hit and run job LOL!!!!!!!!

This has been a huge issue in Australia for about a month after a TV host tried to kill herself after a bunch of cunts (the word is justified) from 9gag and 4chan ganged up on her for some reason. Of course it's abominable but it's the internet, and you can't stop it by applying old-world "if you haven't got anything nice to say don't say anything at all" rubbish. One of our daily papers actually ran this laughable campaign



I'm a little worried about some of the talk about authorities cracking down on what people tweet because it won't be long before people who make jokes on Twitter find themselves getting charged with something. Someone tweeted today "if it ain't over until the fat lady sings, then the new James Bond film should end just after Adele's song plays in the credits". A bad taste joke, certainly, but I admit I laughed and I don't want a group of people going around telling everyone else what's an acceptable joke and what's not.

But there's a line. The stuff that happened with Charlotte Dawson here, that tweet about murdering Adele's baby, highly offensive stuff along those lines is obviously way out of line and I hope the freaks who tweet that sort of shit get some comeuppance. A bit like this story - Traynor's Eye: Meeting A Troll...

I don't understand how anyone can find a comment so generic and without substance as that Adele's baby tweet, to be offensive. It's so unintelligent that it makes anyone look silly for even repeating it

Some of the outrage is ridiculous. Adele would probably never have read it if the media didn't bring it up and you'd think (you'd hope) she has a thick enough skin to go "that's just some useless dickhead on the Internet".
