Egyptian Pharaohs Turn In Graves After Threats of Ancient Pyramid Demolition

I was shocked beyond belief when I learned a few Muslim clerics in the newly elected Egyptian government are calling for the destruction of one of the seven wonders of the world of its ancient Egyptian Pyramids.
"According to several reports in the Arabic media, prominent Muslim clerics have begun to call for the demolition of Egypt’s Great Pyramids—or, in the words of Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi‘i, those “symbols of paganism,” which Egypt’s Salafi party has long planned to cover with wax.    Most recently, Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs” and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt’s new president, Muhammad Morsi, to “destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what the Sahabi Amr bin al-As could not.” - Calls to Destroy Egypt's Great Pyramids Begin -
How ironic these extremists would consider using modern day technology to destroy structures in a matter of a few days of what took decades to build with such precision in the ancient world.  Such a destructive act could metaphorically represent the destruction of all human civilization.

"Now, however, as Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sheikhs” observes, and thanks to modern technology, the pyramids can be destroyed.  The only question left is whether the Muslim Brotherhood president of Egypt is “pious” enough—if he is willing to complete the Islamization process that started under the hands of Egypt’s first Islamic conqueror.
Nor is such a course of action implausible.  History is laden with examples of Muslims destroying their own pre-Islamic heritage—starting with Islam’s prophet Muhammad himself, who destroyed Arabia’s Ka‘ba temple, transforming it into a mosque."  Calls to Destroy Egypt's Great Pyramids Begin -
That these Islamic madmen would even think of destroying the ancient pyramids demonstrates humanity's going to be challenged in the future by those who believe technology can be used to alter the world at their whim.  

The ancient pyramids belong to human civilization, not to this band of religious fanatics who need to be stopped cold in their tracks or face worldwide rebuke.  The pyramids aren't just ancient artifacts, they've been positioned based on the trajectory of stars and are the link of communication from the ancients to us.  The pyramids have evoked human imagination to great heights that still likely hold the key to unlocked mysteries, even to mankind's future.   These structures may hold the key to time travel and all kinds of discoveries.  No one has been able to figure out as of yet how these ancient structures were built with such precision.

If the ancient pyramids were ever to be destroyed, it might unleash a curse the world has never known.
