    IS Destroys Ancient Mosque, Tomb of Jonah near Mosul

    Jonah’s main appearance in the Old Testament is short, but none too sweet.

    As recounted in the Book of Jonah, God asked Jonah to preach. Not thinking himself cut out for the evangelizing game, Jonah ran away to sea.

    But then Yahweh sent a great storm. When Jonah’s shipmates found out he was running from the Man Upstairs, they regretfully threw him overboard. Rather than let Jonah drown, God sent a great fish to swallow him and — yuck — vomit him on dry land. Once saved, Jonah did preach to the people — but then got angry with God when He spared the wicked.

    The end.

    But as reluctant a prophet as Jonah was, his purported tomb in Mosul, Iraq, is a holy site for Muslims – even though it’s not likely the final resting place of a man purported to live in a fish’s tummy for three days. Instead, wrote Columbia University Near Eastern history PhD student Christopher Jones, the tomb is a sacred place “to meditate on the questions raised by the story of Jonah: questions of justice, obedience, providence, fairness and divine mercy.”

    Until this month, when it was destroyed by the Islamic State.



    Agence France-Presse confirmed rumors of the tomb’s fate with an Iraqi official. The official said Islamic State forces closed the mosque and took an hour wiring it with explosive charges. Then:

    Boom.

    Jonah’s tomb “has been turned to dust,” the official said.

    The Islamic State isn’t new to this. As it establishes a caliphate to spread its ultraconservative faith, it’s destroyed cultural artifacts including Sunni, Shia and Sufi sites, according to Newsweek, and replaced the crosses on Mosul’s Syrian Orthodox cathedral with black flags.

    Racism, homophobia, sexism, savagery, death, destruction and other evils are part of the natural order for the dysfunctional ideology.

    If god had any brains at all, he would have put a great big gap where every Islamic nation exists.

    Sad as it is, I doubt there is a country in the world where they do not exist.

    Thought there was a universal understanding amongst warring factors anywhere.

    Historic and ancient sites are off limits.

    Disgraceful.

    You can't look away - you have to face the enemy and learn their rules.

    I had to stop it when they had the phone cameras all round the guys head and one was slitting/sawing his neck with a knife and the blood started to pour out, not pretty.
