Islamists Running a Museum Problematic

Reader comment on item: Florida Museum Celebrates the Loss of Hagia Sophia

Submitted by Dave (United States), May 30, 2017 at 15:39

I don't know how far back the exhibits go at Cummer, but if the Islamists ever have their way, pre-Islamic history will be deleted as representing jahaliyya, or the age of ignorance. For one example, that's why ISIS took apart Palmyra in Syria. Another case: Celebrating the conversion of Hagia Sophia into a mosque celebrates the obliteration of its Christian heritage. Images of living things will also have to go. Sounds like this museum has at least one Islamist and a lot of very passive and naive fools in control.
