It was destroyed before Christ, effectively, and the little bits left were gone long before any Muslim visited Alexandria. Read all about it. Then consider the source.

Great, rebuild the Library of Alexandria just so the muslims can destroy it again.

It's not like the writings from 1300 years ago can be replaced anyway. It was a nice thought, but better executed in a non muslim country, where learning and education are treasured.

YOU ARE ONLINE DOOFUS. The claim that khalif omar did it was by a hostile christian 300 years after the alleged incident and the library was considered to have been finished about 300 years before Islam came on the scene (Remember Hypatia? her father was considered the last member of the library of Alexandria.) You really don't get to lay that one on Islam. It is also said that Ceasar, before the time of christ, pretty much incinerated it.

You are truly ignorant. While the church was burning people at the stake for scientific exploration and studies, Islam was encouraging the sciences.http://www.nytimes.co m/2001/10/30/science/how-islam -won-and-lost-the-lead-in-scie nce.html

Please show me the porn in the Quran, then tell me about the women who wanted men the size of horses in the Bible. The rhapsodies speaking of lovemaking in the OT. Or we could go over the details of how Lot's daughters became pregnant by him. While it wasn't porn, it didn't speak well of any of them, the stupid women, tipsy dad, incest with both his daughters, EWWW.

Julius Caesar burned it by accident before Jesus was born. Then it was rebuilt and burned a couple more times, last time by muslims.

I won't be surprised if muslims destroyed the library of Alexandria. For here is something related ...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nalanda

From above ...

...

Nalanda was ransacked and destroyed by Turkic Muslim invaders under Bakhtiyar Khilji in 1193. The great library of Nalanda University was so vast that it is reported to have burned for three months after the invaders set fire to it, ransacked and destroyed the monasteries, and drove the monks from the site.

...

In 1193, the Nalanda University was sacked by the Islamic fanatic Bakhtiyar Khilji, a Turk;[10] this event is seen by scholars as a late milestone in the decline of Buddhism in India. The Persian historian Minhaj-i-Siraj, in his chronicle the Tabaquat-I-Nasiri, reported that thousands of monks were burned alive and thousands beheaded as Khilji tried his best to uproot Buddhism and plant Islam by the sword;[11] the burning of the library continued for several months and "smoke from the burning manuscripts hung for days like a dark pall over the low hills."[12]

'So who did burn the Library of Alexandria? Unfortunately most of the writers from Plutarch (who apparently blamed Caesar) to Edward Gibbons (a staunch atheist or deist who liked very much to blame Christians and blamed Theophilus) to Bishop Gregory (who was particularly anti-Moslem, blamed Omar) all had an axe to grind and consequently must be seen as biased. Probably everyone mentioned above had some hand in destroying some part of the Library's holdings. The collection may have ebbed and flowed as some documents were destroyed and others were added. For instance, Mark Antony was supposed to have given Cleopatra over 200,000 scrolls for the Library long after Julius Caesar is accused of burning it.'

He married her at 6 and at 9 ah a 50+ GUY WITH A 9 years old.
read the ahadith with open mind and you will find every thing was not goody-goody between mo and ayesha. When ever she protested Mo threatened her of Talaq. The poor soul had no way but to succumb, as her father was chief disciple of the cult leader.

Lots of protest marches going on in Egypt. Too much disorder in all these places, military takeovers probably coming.
