Scheiss-Salafisten zerstören neolithische Felsbilder in Marokko

Posted by entdinglichung - 19. Oktober 2012

aus einer AFP-Meldung:

Stone carvings in Morocco’s High Atlas mountains dating back more than 8,000 years and depicting the sun as a pagan divinity have been destroyed by Salafists, a local rights group said on Wednesday.

„These stone carvings of the sun are more than 8,000 years old. They were destroyed several days ago,“ Aboubakr Anghir, a member of the Amazigh (Berber) League for Human Rights, told AFP.

„One of the carvings, called ‚the plaque of the sun,‘ predates the arrival of the Phoenicians in Morocco,“ Anghir said.

„It lies in a well-known archaeological site in the Yakour plain south of Marrakesh, 20 kilometres (12 miles) from Mount Toubkal.“

„There are several Salafist groups active in the region and it’s not the first time these pre-Islamic sites have been attacked. We have sent a message to the ministry of culture, but have not yet received a reply,“ he added.

Salafists, Muslims who adhere to a hardline Sunni interpretation of Islam similar to that practised in Saudi Arabia, which strictly prohibits „idolatry,“ have enjoyed a surge in strength in Arab Spring countries, benefiting from wider freedom.

Late on Monday, one of Tunisia’s main Sufi mausoleums was burned down in an overnight arson attack, seemingly the latest in a spate of attacks on unorthodox Sufi shrines by the country’s increasingly assertive Salafists.

In northern Mali, which is close to Morocco, radical Islamists have destroyed ancient World Heritage shrines they consider idolatrous since seizing control of the region earlier this year.:

Lesehinweis zu Santiago Carillo (1915-2012)

Manuel Garí: Something rotten in the kingdom of Spain (International Viewpoint), ein Auszug:

„Is it imaginable that, after the death of Marx or Durruti or Rosa Luxemburg or Che, their political enemies would hail their intellectual, political and moral stature? No, obviously. During these events the bosses, the military, the politicians and the oligarchs did not shed tears on their tombs but on the contrary spat on them and denigrated them. The antagonism of the class struggle has never left any room, now or in the past, for compassion or lyrical expressions from the bourgeoisie.

What the bourgeoisie and its parties admire in Carrillo — characterised as a moderate and support of order, with all that means in their mouths — is precisely that he helped them in the democratic transformation from the old regime. The false myth of a peaceful and exemplary Transition has led to the mythologizing of the role of figures like Carrillo, but also the criminal Francoist minister Fraga Iribarne.

However things are simpler and less glorious. The PCE leader was the inspirer and executor of the “amnesty in exchange for amnesia” which was made concrete in the pardoning and forgetting of the transgressions of the Francoists and the abandonment of the cause of the victims. The loss of memory is the current cause of the loss of roots, origins and references of the old and new social left. It is this loss of memory which allows the right to remodel the historic discourse.“
