Priceless 3,000-year-old artworks smashed to pieces in minutes by ISIS

Islamic State thugs have destroyed a collection of priceless statues and sculptures in Iraq dating back thousands of years.


Extremists used sledgehammers and power drills to smash ancient artwork as they rampaged through a museum in the northern city of Mosul.
Video footage shows a group of bearded men in the Nineveh Museum using tools to wreck 3,000-year-old statues after pushing them over.
One of the items, depicting a winged-bull Assyrian protective deity, dates back to the 9th century B.C.
A man shown in the video said the items were being destroyed because they promoted idolatry.
'The Prophet ordered us to get rid of statues and relics, and his companions did the same when they conquered countries after him,' the unidentified man said.
No offence intended.... but I prefer this to them killing innocent beings.
