06-Feb-2011 (4 comments)

Egypt's newly appointed Minister for Antiquities Dr Zahi Howass says the country's ancient artefacts are safe, despite reports of looting.

Speaking on the Andrew Marr show he admitted that seventy objects had been damaged, but promised they would be swiftly repaired.

The Shah was a real patriot. Not like the traitor Khomeini. On his worst day the Shah was vastly superior to the IR gang on their best day. One hair of the Shah is worth all of Islam. The problem with Muslims is they disrespect anything not Islamic.

I am glad Egyptian treasure is safe. They have a history that goes back many thousands of years. Before the barbarism of Islam took them over. They built the pyramids; the sphinx and had written scripts. This is something Muslims will never get.

Islam is the most arrogant philosophy in the world. Muslims call pre-Islam "Jahl" or ignorance. How arrogant of Muslims. All the science of the world from Greece to Egypt to Incas was done without Islam. Without the arrogance of ignorance.


Lucky Egyptians Darius....

As for "our treasures", (the black treasure I mean, the one which powers up my car to take me to work and back in USA daily...) , the revenues from that  is being spent on purchasing faulty centrifuges from a third rate pakistani so called "scientist", funding every little terrorist grouping around the world who are willing to attack jews, americans, women/little girls  who dont wear hijabs, workers or students who demand their rights. Of course any left overs are thrown at drags of society who are prepared to come on internet sites under misleading/false user ID's  and defend this fascist islamist dicatorships

Darius Kadivar, interesting headline you chose. Does it ring a bell and remind us all of the dictator M.R.Shah's same arrogant statement at the 2500 year celebrations?  What a fool he was!

After watching the man in the footage, I would have changed the "super title" to Allho Akbar, for his absent tie, and his soon-to-be-gone pocket handkerchief.

I know, I know Vladimir Illich Lenin used to clean his runny nose with his sleeves too!!
