After more than a year of bombardments by fighter jets, helicopters, missiles and mortars, Assad and his Khomeinist allies succeeded not only to gravely damage much of the Mosque of the Companion Khalid Ibn al-Walid, may Allah be pleased with him, but his Shrine as well. Footage uploaded earlier today shows the total destruction of his grave.
Reports from activists:
Shame on the Muslim world. Shame on the Muslim world. Shame on the Muslim world. Death has not moved them. Rape has not moved them. Purposeful burning and destroying of holy graves linking to our prophet has not moved them. Orphans have not moved them. Displaced, starved, thirsty have not moved them. – http://rosealhomsi.wordpress.com/2013/07/22/22-07-2013-khalid-ibn-alwaleed-mosquetomb-destroyed-homs-syria/
“I want to tell Arabs and Muslims, how will you face God after Khalid bin Walid’s shrine has been destroyed? Why have you abandoned besieged Homs?” – http://english.alarabiya.net/en/News/middle-east/2013/07/22/Army-shelling-destroys-historic-Syrian-shrine-NGO.html
