I started to put this in the Middle East category as news cause apparently it is news...but I thought I would lay out a clever conspiracy theory around it...

http://www.dailymail...th-Baghdad.html

From the article...

"This is the shocking moment ISIS militants took sledgehammers to Iraqi tombstones  - smashing them to pieces.
The rebels, who are members of the Islamic State terror group, were filmed attacking centuries-old graves in the north-west city of Mosul in Ninevah province.
Donning balaclavas and black coats, they swung sledgehammers into the tombs, causing pieces of dust and stone to fly through the air.


One of the devastated tombstones belonged to the Prophet Jonah (Younis in Arabic) and was revered by Muslims and Christians alike, according to Iraqi authorities.
The prophet, who is the central figure in the Hebrew Bible's Book of Jonah, is best known for being swallowed by a fish or a whale, depending on translation."


ISIS (or ISIL) has stated they want to destroy the Kaaba in Mecca as well.  They say people are worshiping a rock and not Allah and it must be destroyed.  They "say" they are going to destroy anything they perceive as an "idol"...Christian, Islamic, Jewish, whatever.

What if....


Here is my conspiracy theory...

What if ISIS/ISIL really ISN'T a radical Islamic sect and are instead a mercenary group?  What if by destroying everything "in the name of Allah" is a way to pull heat away from Israel and the West as they work toward their "real" target...the Dome of the Rock?  See how this could go down?

"IF" an Islamic group were to blow the Dome of the Rock down...what would "other" Muslims say?  All done in the name of removing "idol worship"...

Are you getting what I am saying?

I know!  It's crazy isn't it...but oh man....how happy would Israel be if the Dome came down at the hands of Islamists?  The path would be wide open then for the reconstruction of the Temple Mount and the destruction of the Dome would not be on Israeli hands...

Now there is a conspiracy theory!

Depends do we have a red heifer ready for sacrifice so we can start rebuilding the temple and usher in The End of Times?

ISIS can follow his footsteps and enjoy the condemnation of history. If that is what they are into that is.

Well believe it or not...just about 2 or 3 weeks ago there was a flurry across alternative news sites that a red heifer had been born in Israel.  It was being isolated to be observed to make sure it didn't develop any imperfections.  You can google it and get a ton of sites talking about it.  Whether true or not?  I have no idea.  the MSM has not mentioned it, but lots of other "alternative" sites have.

No conspiracy or 'secret societies'....just the same old bunch of religious vandals doing what they do best.......remember the Buddhas of Bamiyan - 2001.........."All we are breaking are stones"...commented a Taliban leader.

We know the 3rd Temple will be built, just not when.  I think it will be very difficult for that domed building to be destroyed and it NOT be blamed on Israel - even if an earthquake caused it. :)

Well here is what I find the most puzzling...they are saying they are going to destroy the Kaaba.  Now I admit I do not know very much about Islam, but I thought this was like their absolute most holy relic...a thing all Muslims are supposed to make a trip to at least once in their lives.

So why would this group want to destroy it?  They say these shrines, holy places and relics are against Islam and they must be destroyed...where did this come from?  Why now?  What do the other Islamic groups think about this directive from the leader of ISIS?


I am posing these questions all in the spirit of conspiracy theory!

A member of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) has said that they planned to capture Saudi Arabia and destroy the Kaaba, according to report in Turkish media. The report mentioned ISIS's plan to take control of the city of Arar in Saudi Arabia and begin operations there.

ISIS member Abu Turab Al Mugaddasi said: "If Allah wills, we will kill those who worship stones in Mecca and destroy the Kaaba. People go to Mecca to touch the stones, not for Allah."

That's not a conspiracy theory, that's idle speculation. You have to have some "proof", even it's made up, for it to be a conspiracy theory.

I know many "theories" hanging on a very tenuous thread!

ISIS has said the will destroy the Kaaba....that is not idle speculation (thanks Ealdwita for confirming)...

I can make some shiz up I guess if completely required to call a crazy idea a "conspiracy theory"....but sure...it's speculation.  Wild speculation but speculation.  I just personally can see a chain of dots that could easily be connected.

How's this....I'll make it up on the fly.

In order to build the third temple, Israel must somehow remove the Dome.  They cannot cannot do this without backlash from all of Islam coming after them.  However, if islamic extremists destroy it...."hey it's not our fault!".  Couple this with the supposed finding of "the red heifer" and perhaps Israel has bought and paid for a "fake" Islamic extremists group to come in and do it for them "in the name of Allah" of course.  let's not forget the amazing speed that ISIS has grown and moved and how well financed they are....

Ok....there ya go

Could be just about any group opposed to Islam, even a group that wants to eventually destroy everything that has any historical religious significance at all.

Let's say they want to bring in a world government that wants peace, and no more wars based on religion. First clear out all the religious idol stuff and places, then people won't have to fight over it anymore.

But aren't conspiracy theories about past events with some new cooked up version to re-explain what happened in a whole new light?

If, what you're saying comes to pass, I'll say, "Whoa, Jeremiah is the new Nostradamus and his conspiracy theory was a conspiracy theory!" Until then, you can find me sitting on the fence on this one.

"A conspiracy theory is an explanatory proposition that accuses two or more persons, a group, or an organization of having caused or covered up, through secret planning and deliberate action, an illegal or harmful event or situation."

I'd say it also deals with stuff that is currently going on as well...

There is what we read about in the news about what is happening, and what is actually happening. ;)

That's my point, idle speculation. We could play "what if" all day long. "What if" dreams had wings? Then beggars could fly.

If you think about it though, would real Muslims want to blow up all the Muslim religious places?
