My Way News - Timbuktu, ancient seat of Islamic learning
My Way News reports: "Timbuktu, the fabled desert city where retreating Muslim extremists destroyed ancient manuscripts, was a center of Islamic learning hundreds of years before Columbus landed in the Americas [...] The damage caused by the fleeing Islamists was limited, but irreplaceable treasures were lost [...] On Tuesday, Timbuktu was in control of French and Malian troops, including some 250 French paratroopers dropped from the sky. The extremists melted into the desert without firing a shot. Townspeople were jubilant at the city's liberation from intolerant Islamist extremists."

Comment: These Islamic radicals don't even respect their own culture. It's nice to see the media take note, finally.
