This is coolbert:
From the Sheldon Adelson Internet web site Israel Hayom:
"A suggestion for the ISIS book club" by Clifford D. May.
"After a long week of slitting throats, smashing antiquities and raping infidel slave girls, how do Islamic State's barbarians unwind? Some, apparently, discuss the finer points of history."
SALAFISTS FOR THE MOST PART NEITHER INTERESTED IN "THE FINER POINTS OF HISTORY" OR EVEN MUCH ANYTHING ELSE BEYOND THAT!
As was noted in a commentary by Daniel Pipes the Salafists of the Islamic State strongly emulating those first three generations of Muslims. Book burning and destruction of knowledge that existed prior to the time of Mohammad considered to be jahhiliya [ignorance] and not worthy of consideration..
"If those books are in agreement with the Quran, we have no need of them; and if they are opposed to the Quran, destroy them!" - - Caliph Omar.
"all their books, by the commendement of the Mahumetan prelates, were burnt least their knowledge in natural philosophie or their idolatrous religion might moue them to contemne the precepts of Mahumet". - - Leo Africanus.
"Kutaiba ben Muslim had extinguished and ruined in every possible way all those who knew how to write and to read the Kwarizmi [Khwarazm] writing, who knew the history of the country and who studied their sciences" - - al-Biruni.
BASICALLY, BY AND LARGE, MOSTLY THE SALAFISTS DON'T READ BOOKS OTHER THAN THE KORAN!
