Dr Pipes,

It seems that members of the regressive left have something in common with jihadists as both groups want to destroy the pyramids and the sphinx. The regressive left claim that the pyramids were built by slaves (which is not true) and therefore they should be destroyed. The Jihadists, and in this case in 2012 a certain jihadist by the name of Morgan Salem el-Gohary wanted to destroy the pyramids! Why? because his Allah and Muhammad told him to do so! Why? Because they are "idols" and Allah does not like idols. Remember that Allah plans everything even building of the pyramids! But again the worst enemy of jihadists are themselves.
