Deliberate Defilement

Reader comment on item: L'Institut d'Égypte – In Memoriam
in response to reader comment: Why would a mob destroy a thing of beauty?

Submitted by Garry Lockwood (Australia), Jan 3, 2012 at 01:27

Hi Prashant, there is a clear tendency in Islam to defile things or places that are precious to other religions. This is done in order to stake a claim over that place or that religion. Islam can tolerate no rivals, and must attempt to destroy what belongs to another religion. Why was the Dome of the Rock built where it is? To defile the Jewish temple, and stake the claim of Islam over Israel. Islam is an exceptionally intolerant religion.
