The latest atrocity by the terrorist members of the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt was the incredible destruction inflicted on the Museum of Islamic Art متحف الفن الاسلامي located next door to Cairo's main security headquarters located at Midan Bab el-Khalq in Cairo .

Only barbarians can do such thing and these are the same people that claim that they are out to "defend Islam" when in actual fact they are destroying their Islamic heritage.

And here is the web site of the museum: http://www.islamicmuseum.gov.eg/museum.html

In a city like Cairo that is full of great museums and art this must be one of the best museums not just in Cairo but also of Islamic art.

There is no doubt in my mind that the MB is a terrorist group and I tell all those in academia here in the US that tell us that suppression of the MB only leads to terrorism that they are misguided fools and no more. What a disaster
