Islamist militants desecrate British World War Two graves in Libya

This video footage is dated, but is a reminder to all civilized people, not to believe those who say “ISIS is not our problem”.

The video, shot by the Islamist militia themselves, shows more than 30 armed men kicking down the gravestones of British servicemen while comrades use sledgehammers to break the cenotaph. “Break the cross of the dogs!” one man can be heard shouting as another soldier perches on a ladder to smash the cenotaph cross with a mallet.

The cemetery, near the eastern city of Benghazi, hold the remains of more than 100 British and Commonwealth servicemen who fought for Montgomery’s Eighth Army in the second world war.

Here is how the Guardian reported the incident in March 2012.
