ISIS Destroys 3000 Yr Old Artifacts

261DB11500000578-2970270-image-a-1_1424957194042The Dark Ages are almost upon us. It breaks my heart to watch ISIS members take sledge hammers to 3000 yr old artifacts and relics at Mosul Museum in Iraq. What really baffles me is why couldn’t they just gather the collection and sell them to the highest bidders in the Western world since they sometimes hold people at ransom for money over their deaths? Everyone is entitled to their causes but why take it out on stones that can not speak but simply to educate us of a time gone by? As an art lover, my heart feels heavy with sadness to watch an era come to an end –literally.

Brace yourself, the video footage below is disturbing.
