Robbing the Cradle of Civilization: The Looting of Iraq's Ancient Treasures
What are we going to do with all of these antiques?
This video covers the real truth about the looting of Iraq's ancient artifacts and how devastated this has left many around the world.
"The first casualty of war is truth, the second casualty is history." U.S soldiers were blamed for not protecting the Iraqi museum enough in order to stop the looters.
I'm hoping this school and church will impact the community positively!
The looters stole the treasures in order to sell them to foreign consumers... but the questions are: who are these looters and are they still laying low?
I am a woman, and i am proud to have made a difference in education!
This video illustrates the founding of the world's first university by Fatima al-Fihri, a wealthy Muslim widowed woman who changed the face of higher education.
After inheriting a large fortune from their father when he died, Fatima and her sister decided to use that money to build a mosque and school for their local community.
It is important to recognize how Fatima was a woman who created this university & allowed for advancements in knowledge, something that would probably never be mentioned for the sake of women's dignities.
