According to this article the well know Pyramids of Egypt are under threat. Seeing from history we have had Christians, Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Mayans and various other religions destroying the religious work of those not theirs. With the rise of 'radical' Islamisme in Egypt, the call has been made to destroy the pyramids. Which, in my opinion could invoke drastic reactions. First off all, they are one of Egypts best known tourism products (though tourism has dropped massively since the revolution last year) and secondly because they are on the UNESCO list of World Heritage. There are other reports of 'radical' Islamist destroying shrines of Muslim Saints near a mosque in Timbuktu. Claiming that prayers need to go to Allah and not the Saints. Religious secularism is rising throughout the Arab World again. We have western countries (mostly Christian) demanding democracy in many Arab countries (though at the same time denying democracy in countries they are allied with) whilst being backed up by Arab countries. The best known example of today is Syria. A country where religion did not matter and now churches, mosques and synagoges are not safe anymore. One might ask if humanity is falling again or not, though then I must remember the following sentence; "It is darkest before the dawn." Then a new question comes forth, how much darker must it get before the new dawn?
