    That's how I feel about it. Before I die, I want to see the pyramids and Egypt in general. Other than obvious reasons, I felt a deep sense of sadness that the bruthahood is going to be in charge. There's nothing good about it.

    The Arabs have their own museum in Dearborn-The Museum of Arab American History. It's in a former furniture store. But it's not an exclusively muslim museum, it's an Arab American museum. It looks cool from the outside, artistically speaking.


    I figured it was just a matter of time before some loon decided the Pyramids were pagan. But if every spooky mummy movie I've ever seen is correct, they will unleash some sort of terrible curse upon themselves if they do destroy the pyramids...The Scorpion King, or some other horrible creature will kill them all.

    Frankly, I'd rather see the Temple of Solomon and know that the Palestinians weren't digging up the foundations and trashing the artifacts as part of their ongoing culture war.

    This has been an ongoing thing for a while. In their heart of heats, the Muslims know that their culture is stagnating, and they have difficulty reconciling it with the more advanced cultures that preceded them. That's part of the reason for their hair-trigger rage at anything that they see in the west that reminds them of it, or otherwise smacks of western condescension or accomplishment.
