Antiquities, Riots & Iconoclasts

It is heartening to see that residents as well as the Egyptian army are attempting to safeguard the Cairo Egyptian Museum, home of the Tutankamun treasures.

Let's not forget the iconoclasm of devout Scimitarists. Pursuant of Chesterton's parable, the reasons for the riots in Egypt are multitudinous. But destruction in the case of some of our greatest artifacts can be, sadly, one and final.
