Barbarians: ISIS destroys entire Iraqi library that held over 8,000 rare old books



This is what Islamic groups do when they conquer new territory. They don’t just kill the people, they kill the culture. They want to rewrite history and that’s exactly what they are doing when they destroy historical monuments and libraries like this one:

YAHOO NEWS – While the world was watching the Academy Awards ceremony, the people of Mosul were watching a different show. They were horrified to see ISIS members burn the Mosul public library. Among the many thousands of books it housed, more than 8,000 rare old books and manuscripts were burned.

“ISIS militants bombed the Mosul Public Library. They used improvised explosive devices,” said Ghanim al-Ta’an, the director of the library. Notables in Mosul tried to persuade ISIS members to spare the library, but they failed.
