Ibrahim & Mahmud!

This is coolbert:

Senaccherib & Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi. What was twenty-five hundred years ago is as now!

"ISIS Is About to Destroy Biblical History in Iraq"

"PARIS — More than two and a half millennia ago, the Assyrian King Senaccherib descended on his enemies 'like the wolf on the fold,' as the Bible tells us—and as Lord Byron wrote in cantering cadences memorized by countless Victorian schoolchildren: 'His cohorts were gleaming in purple and gold; And the sheen of their spears was like stars on the sea.'”
. . . .

"Last month, a new marauder descended on Nineveh and the nearby city of Mosul. He, too, came down like the wolf on the fold, but his cohorts brandished Kalashnikovs from pickup trucks, not shining spears; their banners were the black flags of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Sham [ISIL]."

Destroying the images and artifacts of ancient Mesopotamia high on the agenda for Caliph Ibrahim?

This is jahiliyya? A rejection of all things pre-Islamic?

Ibrahim too thinking and behaving in the manner of Mahmud of Ghazni from one thousand years ago?

"[not] wanting to appear before the Judgment Seat as one who had taken money to spare an idol."
