Iraqi Libraries Robbed by ISIS

By Dianna Dilworth Comment

Islamic State militants reportedly invaded the Central Library of Mosul last month, allegedly destroying books that “disobey” Allah.

The Boston Globe has the scoop:

Residents say the extremists smashed the locks that had protected the biggest repository of learning in the northern Iraq town, and loaded about 2,000 books — including children’s stories, poetry, philosophy, and tomes on sports, health, culture and science — into six pickup trucks. They left only Islamic texts.

Apparently the group, broke into the library and stole these texts and later destroyed them.
