Racist Idiot Louis Farrakhan is often credited for saying the most stupid of things. We recall his ridiculous statements such as Hurricane Katrina was "God's way of punishing America for its warmongering and racism," that Jews are to blame for Black Slavery, and incredibly, that he was taken into an Islamic spaceship (1).
I know what some of my readers are going to say, "Minister Farrakhan is only joking." He doesn't expect anyone to take these statements seriously. I remind my readers that most of those listening to him are Muslims and consequently are already gullible morons.
In the 1995 Million Man March which was organized to promote "unity, atonement and brotherhood," Farrakhan addressed the throng with the following lie:
Andrew Warinner Blog, Who did the Sphinx's Nose?
You can't harmonize with the dark people of the world who out number you eleven to one, if you're going to stand in the mind of white supremacy. White supremacy has to die in order for humanity to live. White folk try to rewrite history and write us out. White supremacy caused Napoleon to blow the nose off of the Sphinx because it reminded you [sic] too much of the Black man's majesty.
Would anyone call this speech as the type that advocates "unity, atonement and brotherhood"?
Before any readers try to defend the Reverend (and I use the term 'Reverend' here very loosely) by insisting he was merely repeating a known fact, allow me to enlighten them as to the truth. It was Muslims who damaged the Sphinx.
But first let's debunk the urban legend that Napoleon destroyed the nose. More than 60 years before Napoleon set foot in Egypt, Frederic Louis Norden made sketches showing the Sphinx missing its nose:

Here are the facts:
napoleon-series.org, Did Napoleon's troops shoot the nose off the Sphinx?
In 1380 A.D. the Sphinx fell victim to the iconoclastic ardor of a fanatical Muslim ruler, who caused deplorable injuries to the head. Then the figure was used as a target for the guns of the Mamluks." In the book The Egyptian Pyramids: A Comprehensive, Illustrated Reference (Jefferson, NC: McFarland, 1990), p.301, the author, J.P. Lepre, adds the fact that, in addition to the 14th century damage, "The face was further disfigured by the eighteenth century A.D. ruler of Egypt, the Marmalukes [Mamluks]."
Of course, this is just the standard operating procedure for Muslims, to try to destroy the relics of other religions. It is Islamic law that demands that every pagan and idol must be destroyed. For example, a 12th century Muslim ruler spent eight months trying to dismantle the Pyramid of Menkaure, the smallest of the three Great Pyramids of Giza, before giving up:

I could give hundreds of more examples, but if you are a Muslim apologist, a thousand examples would not suffice.
