Just days ago (July 25) in Mosul, Iraq, militants of ISIS (the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria) destroyed the traditional burial site of the biblical prophet Jonah, an 800 year old holy site to both Christians and Muslims in the region.

But this isn't the first time that this kind of ruthless violence against faith and history has occurred.

Many important religious and historical sites have been destroyed or defaced by Muslim extremists in adherence to strict traditions that cannot be found in the Koran. With a little searching, I found four important historic religious sites destroyed in the Mideast in recent history.
