Reader comment on item: Islam vs. History

As I indicated before that the monasteries of Wadi al-Natrun in Egypt as well as the site of the great Alexandrian saint: St. Minas' (abu Mina) church south and west of Alexandria were subjected to sacking and looting by the Arabs for almost 1200 years and the stubborn monks always rebuilt these great monuments only to be looted and sacked again and now the site is falling apart

Now the site of Abu Mina's chruch made it to the list of world heritage in danger http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/90

Notice that the UNESCO report does not tell us that it was the Arabs and Muslims that inflicted this horrible damage on a monument that belongs to all of humanity and that may be the wahhabis should pay for the damages to the site and to maintain the site as part of the world heritage instead of paying money for the likes of the so called ground zero mosque
