It's the Jahiliyya, Stupid

NBC News notices that ISIS (like the Taliban, and like all Islamic conquerors) feels compelled to destroy stuff that's pre-Islamic. That's because, for jihadis and other by-the-book Muslims, what came before Islam is seen as "jahiliyya"--ignorance and disorder, for which Islam is the only remedy.

Not that N"PC" would use either "j" word to account for the destruction.
