Religious teaching that drives Isis to threaten the ancient ruins of Palmyra

…. because Isis might have other motives to destroy the city. The group often seizes any opportunity to expose the hypocrisy and double standards of its opponents.

For many Syrians, the biggest event in Palmyra was last week’s capture of Tadmur prison, one of the Assad regime’s most notorious jails. The disproportionate attention ancient ruins have received, compared with human tragedies, has disturbed many. If Isis blows up the site, it would be largely because of this deemed hypocrisy.

[TOP RATED COMMENT 121 votes] I am afraid this reads like an apology for one of the most grotesque movements in modern times. There is no subtle morality at play here, no discussion of various hadiths or dictates necessary or illuminative. These ‘people’ are simply grotesque excuses for humanity that would have stuck out as psychopathic outliers at ant time in the past few thousand years.

[2ND 117] “The group often seizes any opportunity to expose the hypocrisy and double standards of its opponents.”

Please explain the hypocrisy and double standards of those who are appalled by mass executions of people of all faiths – Muslims included. As well as the mindless, ignorant wrecking of our common heritage.

While you’re about it, also explain the double standards of Daesh itself, which cynically sells off the gold it loots from these infidel sites.

[3RD 86] Sounds like you’re already trying to blame someone other than Isis in the event of them destroying this site.

[4TH 81] “The disproportionate attention ancient ruins have received, compared with human tragedies, has disturbed many. If Isis blows up the site, it would be largely because of this deemed hypocrisy.”

“You bad people, you see what you made me, I have to do terrible things because you are such hypocrites.”
