Islamic theology and law refer to the time preceding Islam as the jahiliyyah, the age of ignorance. Everything that existed before Islam is worthless; none of it is worth saving. In fact, all evidence of the jahiliyyah is offensive to Allah, and must be destroyed. That’s why the Islamic State burned the library in Mosul. That’s why the Taliban blew up the Bamiyan Buddhas in Afghanistan.
In the following video, in his last speech at the European Parliament, the late Professor Hans Jansen discussed the propensity of Islam for violent destruction of everything that came before it. It’s a reminder of the stature of Prof. Jansen, and how much our movement has lost by his untimely demise.

|0:09||In the year 832 AD, the then-caliph of Baghdad visited Egypt and ordered his troops|
|0:24||To demolish the Great Pyramid of Giza.|
|0:27||After months, the efforts of his soldiers were in vain. The damage was negligible.|
|0:32||The attempts to destroy this pre-Islamic monument|
|0:37||were therefore discontinued.|
|0:40||This illustrates the way Islam tries to demolish all visual reminders of anything preceding it.|
|0:50||Islam always does that —|
|0:51||Now, just now, in Northern Iraq and Northern Syria.|
|0:54||In the case of genocide it denies the genocide.|
|1:00||In the case of jihad it eradicates anything that reminds the victims of jihad.|
|1:05||I therefore want the commission and anyone listening not merely to remember those victims,|
|1:10||but try to prevent the same fate happening to Europe.|
|1:22||For the enemy is already within our gates.
