I was interested to see the following item in the news: http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5jykaHV-_iXi7BvQ25fYugf3EmGzQ?docId=CNG.7f0f485b0dc865f9ad98d6f0176397d7.a81 Particularly perhaps related to a video clip posted on this forum a few weeks ago. The clip showed a Muslim preacher telling his audience that Mohammad had decreed in the Quran that tombs should not be of a greater height than (I think) half a metre. This is relating to what I think is Islam's obsession with idolatry. But surely this instruction shouldn't be interpreted in a way that people existing over a thousand years in the future should destroy or desicrate graves held dear by many faithful Mulims and others? This dictate was surely an instruction intended to commence from that from that point in time onward. Otherwise there would be no end to the destruction of ancient tombs erected by people of any faith by the ultra faithful/fanatical, whenever they felt like it. Perhaps this was a case of certain people 'wanting to please their masters'. Regards, ron
