Islamists destroy Tripoli shrine – leave bosomy minarets intact

by | 26th, August 2012

HOW goes the Arab Spring in Libya? Well, the BBC reports that a Sufi shrine to al-Shaab al-Dahman in Tripoli has been smashed to bits. Salafi Islamists are in the frame.

The Salafists (great name, guys) view the shrine and others like it as idolatrous. A tomb to 15th-Century scholar Abdel Salam al-Asmar in Zlitan has, reportedly, also been targeted.

Odd, indeed, that the intolerant chose to leave the suggestive minarets intact. Don’t they still get Babestation in post-Gaddafi Tripoli?
