Worthy Christian News » Christian » Jihadists Claim to Have Destroyed Jonah's Tomb


By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent

BAGHDAD (Worthy News)– Muslim jihadists claim to have destroyed the tomb of the Old Testament prophet Jonah in Nineveh as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria destroys ancient shrines and anything else that offends them.

And jihadists Muslims are easily offended.

According to Christian Headlines, ISIS even intends to march on Mecca to destroy Islam's most sacred shrine. Mecca is home to the Al-Masjid al-Haram mosque, which contains a cube called the Kaaba that Muslims claim contains a cornerstone laid by Muhammad, their prophet.

ISIS intends to destroy the cube because it has become an idol, but for now, ISIS is content to distribute a video of a hooded figure swinging a sledgehammer onto a row of concrete tombs. However, the video looks nothing like the interior of the Tomb of Jonah, according to Columbia University historian Christopher Jones. So the video is either fake, or shows ISIS destroying something else.

Regardless of what ISIS claims to have destroyed, Judit Neurink of Deutsche Welle said ISIS' motives are more than religious: before it desecrates and destroys mosques and memorials, it first loots them, making millions from the antiquities it has stolen.

    Cowards, always wearing masks. I agree hiding the truth. The enemy is leading the way in this, out to steal, kill & destroy.

    Everything offends them. Even other Muslims, which they also kill without remorse. If we'd just left them be, they'd have annihilated each other by now.
