ISIS Fighters Ransack Ancient Museum in Mosul, Destroying Priceless Statues, Artifacts (VIDEO)

Islamic State terrorists have destroyed a priceless collection of statues and sculptures dating back to the 7th century B.C., inflicting what an archaeologist described as incalculable damage to a piece of shared human history



Why would ISIS destroy an ancient museum?

This ISIS militant in the video (below)  says the statues are what he calls 'idols' from the time of the Assyrians and the Arcadians, a time -- he says -- when people worshipped something other than god.

He says the Prophet Muhammad 'ordered' Muslims to get rid of statues and relics.

Watch the video- So, I guess this also has nothing to do with Islam either, right?
