ISIS destroy 1,900-year-old Lion of Al-Lat – the pre-Islamic pagan goddess that became Allah
ISIS destroy the very statue related to Allah (goddess Al-Lat) that was worshipped by Arab Nabataean tribes in pre-Islamic Arabia.
The backward desert-dwelling illiterates behind Islam originate from the blood lineage of a criminal tribe referred to as Sarakene. In the early centuries CE in Greek and Latin it referred to a people who lived in desert areas in and near the Roman province of Arabia, and who were specifically distinguished from Arabs. In Europe during the Early Medieval era, the term began to be used to describe Arab tribes as well. By the 12th century, “Saracen” had become synonymous with “Muslim” in Medieval Latin literature. The Saracens were infamous for their brutality and unpopular everywhere, constant aggrevators to wars and battles.
The three most sacred sites in Islam are Mecca, Medina and the Dome of the Rock on Temple mount, Jerusalem, which is identified in Judaism as the ‘Eben Shettiyah’, the ‘stone of foundation’, around which God built the world. Deep beneath the rock is a partly flooded cavity known to Muslims as ‘Bir-el-Arweh’, or the ‘Well of Souls’, and Jewish lore maintains how when David dug the foundations of the first temple he found the ‘Eben Shettiyah’, the block that holds back the Abyss. When he tried to move the stone, the waters of the underworld burst forth mirroring a parallel tradition in Islam, which holds that when Mohammed cast down the idol that once stood in the sacred complex at Mecca, he unblocked an ancient well beneath the Ka’bah. The idol was said to resemble the body of a ‘black woman’, a deity named ‘Hubal’. This may be the reason why medieval Christian texts claim that the black stone in the Kaaba is actually the head of the goddess Astarte, aphrodite in her warlike attribution. Aphrodite is the Greek goddess of love, beauty, pleasure (sex), and procreation.
“These (Muslims), then, were idolators and worshippers of the morning star and Aphrodite whom in fact they called Chabar (Kaaba) in their own language, which means “great.”… From that time till now a false prophet appeared among them, surnamed Mamed (Muhammed), who, having happened upon the Old and the New Testament and apparently having conversed, in like manner, with an Arian monk [Bahira], put together his own heresy.”
– John of Damascus, De haeresibus, 730 AD
Islam was a false religion built to commit war to conquer nations and to loot wealth. This is why theologians and histrians cannot find any evidence of a prophet Mohammed to actually have lived during his assumed lifetime. No one ever mentioned a prophet called Mohammed until much later. He is a phantom.
Herodotus and Pausanias recorded that Aphrodite’s oldest non-Greek temple lay in the Syrian city of Ascalon where she was known as Ourania, an obvious reference to Astarte [ashtart (ʻštrt)]. Astarte was connected with fertility, sexuality, and war. Her symbols were the lion, the horse, the sphinx, the dove, and a star within a circle indicating the planet Venus. Pictorial representations often show her naked. She has been known as the deified evening star.
So, Muslims actually worship a woman – a medieval goddess of war and sex. Mohammed’s gang of criminals were illiterate caravan robbers. During their radids they may have assumed that the Greek goddess Asarte (success in war and booty) and Allat (success in conquest of nations) would evoke powers onto them. And look at them bending to Asarte and Al-Lat for 1,400 years, they themselves are completely obsessed with war, conquest and sex!
The original Allah: Goddess al-Lat, one of three daughters of Baal symbolising Light, Rain and Earth. Al-Lat represented earth. In medieval times people performed rituals to dieties to achieve specific boons that were under the dominion of that diety. One can speculate that since Islam is a warlike religion that sought conquest and wealth through theft and loot, Al-Lat was important in Muslim worship to ‘conquer earth’ (used as talismans and rituals to achieve success to invade countries).
ISIS ‘destroys’ famous lion god statue in captured Syrian city of Palmyra… just days after promising locals they would not obliterate ancient monuments
- Depraved jihadis are said to have broken vow not to destroy the city
- Just hours after telling locals Palmyra was safe, they started destroying it
- 1,900-year-old Lion of Al-Lat statue was reportedly one of the first targets
- The celebrated monument was a tribute to a pre-Islamic Arab goddess
Militants fighting for the Islamic State have reportedly destroyed a famous statue of a lion in the captured city of Palmyra – despite promising locals they would not obliterate the ancient city.
Following their capture of Palmyra last Thursday, ISIS militants are understood to have won the support of much of the local population by promising not to destroy the city’s famous monuments.
But it appears that promise was too much for the jihadis to keep, with eyewitnesses claiming they destruction of millenia-old Statues and buildings is already very much under way, with the most significant loss so far being the celebrated Lion of Al-Lat, which dates back to the first century AD.
Destroyed: The 1,900-year-old Lion of Al-Lat statue (pictured before ISIS seized Palmyra) is said to have been destroyed by the terrorists. The celebrated monument was built as a tribute to a pre-Islamic Arab goddess
Chilling: Thick black smoke rising over Roman ruins that have stood for thousands of years in the central Syrian desert city. Following their capture of Palmyra last Thursday, ISIS militants are understood to have won the support of much of the local population by promising not to destroy the city’s famous monuments
The lion statue was destroyed by ISIS militants on Saturday, according to the International Business Time, who quoted eyewitnesses on the ground in Palmyra.
‘I heard a loud noise, so I went up to the roof to see what is going on,’ one local man said.
‘I saw Daash crushing the ‘god lion’ statue with construction machines. There were many other crushed statues but I could not recognise the rest of them because they were totally ruined,’ he added, using an Arabic acronym for the terror group.
The act of destroying the statue came just days after ISIS gathered Palmyra’s citizens together and publicly promised not to bulldoze the city’s ancient buildings, as they previously did in Nimrod.
‘As for the historical monuments, we will not touch it with our bulldozers as some tend to believe,’ ISIS commander Abu Leith was quoted as saying on a local radio broadcast.
However the promise did come with a get-out clause, as the depraved fighters insisted they would ‘pulverise’ any statues they discovered in the city that the believed citizens secretly prayed to.
Since ISIS seized control of Palmyra, the temple and its surrounding area have been appropriated by ISIS militants, who are said to be using it as a military base.
Locals who preserved the site for the last 1,900 years are now said to be banned from entering the area unless the are willing to sign up to become ISIS jihadis.
ISIS is accused of executing hundreds of people in and around Palmyra since it swept into the oasis city last week after a lightning advance across the desert from its stronghold in the Euphrates Valley to the east.
But they have also released propaganda images showing the terrorists releasing prisoners from Tadmor Prison – with the convicts seen embracing one another in the streets after being freed.
Yesterday the extremists ‘called people to watch’ as they executed 20 local men in a Roman ampitheatre in the ancient Syrian city.
The men were shot dead in the restored ruin, which had been used for an annual festival in the city, in front of the crowd. The murdered locals were accused of being government supporters, according to a report from the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
‘IS executed 20 men by firing on them in front of a crowd gathered in Palmyra’s Roman theatre, after accusing them of fighting for the Syrian regime,’ Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, told AFP.
This morning the European Union added a high-ranking Syrian military official to its sanctions list, as it extended measures against supporters of President Bashar al-Assad for another year.
The EU began imposing asset freezes and travel bans on Assad and his supporters in 2011 to protest a government crackdown on Assad’s opponents. With Syria’s civil war now in its fifth year, the sanctions list has grown to more than 200 people and 70 organisations.
EU governments decided to extend the sanctions another year and add one person to the list – a high-ranking military official the EU accused of being ‘responsible for repression and violence against the civilian population in Damascus and Damascus countryside.’
