Egypt Islamic body condemns ISIS heritage destruction

The Egyptian body which rules on Islamic law on Friday condemned ISIS’ destruction of Iraqi artifacts, saying the Prophet Mohammed’s own companions had never demolished ancient heritage. The Dar al-Ifta, whose rulings are sought by Muslims from around the world, said the jihadis’ videotaped smashing of ancient statues at the Mosul museum in northern Iraq showed their ignorance of the teachings of the faith.
