Destroying the Sphinx and the Pyramids would really help the tourist trade. How do they think they can make a living if not from tourists? They haven't got oil. A Saudi Arabia without oil is not going to be a great success story.


"An Egyptian jihad leader, with self-professed links to the Taliban, called for the “destruction of the Sphinx and the Giza Pyramids in Egypt,”

There was a similar story not long ago, which turned out to the a hoax. This seems like more than a rumor. In any case, I've always wondered why they haven't been destroyed yet.
