This will be short, and very unsweet.
Islamic militants broke into Timbukto's Amhed Baba Institute. This library was the center of most Islamic history, and boasted more than 20,000 scrolls and books, some dating back to 1200 CE.
They burned it down.
I am happy to state that I have only witlessed one burning of books in living color. Some demented bible beating thug decided that Harry Potter, instead of being a boost to hungry readers of all ages, was the spawn of Satan, and constituted a clear and present danger to the welfare of "god-fearin, christian childrens everywhere." That is an exact quote.
Who else burned books? Hilter. Stalin. Mao. Pol Pot. Think of any despot or tyrannical asshole, and usually, they tried to control the minds and the thoughts of their people, often by force.
While it may seem a bit like a christian creep burning bibles, the idea that Islamic Militarist thugs broke into and burned the greatest collection of Muslim writings is simply unforgivable.
Anyone who burns a book (I might almost make an exception for that series of "End of Times" crap, but even that can be educational - it proves how crazy christian ideas truly are, when they are taken to extremes by demented excrements. Extremists. Whatever.)
Insert a series of swear words that would make my mother blush.
Direct them to the fuckers who decided to burn their own history and heritage.
May they feel each lick of flame themselves.
