The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) are looting ancient sites across Iraq and Syria on an industrial scale and selling on treasures to middlemen to raise cash, Irina Bokova, the head of the UN cultural agency UNESCO, has said.
Imperialism, at its death bed, unable to march forward, is engaged in destroying “past”, the heritage of mankind and specially the struggle and heroic victories of oppressors!
Examples are many; like US effort to demean Soviet’s victory against Nazis, Ukraine, India, where Godse murderer of MK Gandhi, is being portrayed as national hero, while Bhagat Singh, a revolutionary and a Communist as symbol of Hindu Rashtra!!
Even though, the working class, the only revolutionary class in the history of mankind to free itself from all forms of exploitation, is divided, its party in quagmire of opportunism and revisionism; will eventually rise and unite to overthrow imperialism once and for ever!
