    They blew it up yesterday

    Yesterday it has been erected
    They blew it up
    Therefore, civilization should end
    Eid would come and no dress up
    Undressed you shall be
    O, Hadbaah
    The worshiping place to all
    A pious man and saint
    O, the minaret of a generous glory
    I cry you
    I bid you a farewell
    As a noble champion
    And you had in each year a memory.
    Ears got down
    Trodden by horses' hooves
    Reminiscence and aches
    And ever departure
    Hours before sundown and after
    You loftily call to prayer
    And Tigris River would smile
    Cisterns, basins and ships
    And the pastures of horses
    Accordantly would return
    And worriedly lie down
    Safe guard each another
    Proudly established a coalition
    The danger would threaten
    And morning is still in bed asleep
    Moses shepherds
    His stick turned short
    It will never blow wells up
    She turned bewildered
    Wrapped oneself by a thick overcoat
    And summer days become hotter
    At midday it can't be withstood
    Who are the comers?
    Who are the emigrants?
    Who look up the Arcturus?
    Which generous man can attend?
    Which glimpse of hope can get up?
    Kettles would pour out
    Sheep would be milked
    And sleepers still in bed dreaming
    No messengers should then
    And no shelter to find
    Hell it would replace making happiness
    It looks like a pig bends on its breasts
    Shouting, "where are Arabs?"
    Where are those who ignored the sanctity of history?
    As al-quds as Nablus
    At each day dogs howl
    And come around
    Clock's hands turn upset
    Stars would go wandering
    Butterflies in their beds are slept
    Never fly
    The minaret of Hadbaah was cut off
    As a tree branch it was chopped off
    It becomes as a lifeless tree
    It will not produce fruits
    It will not highly stand
    O, Iraq, may I cry you
    Is not a consolatory to come here?

    I don't know why this aggressive soul against civilization, it is as if a planned project in advance has been plotted seeking for destroying our ancient history background.
    It is not by any means a randomly savage act but doubtless there are intentions behind. Three years and all the world forces cannot drive away those ISIS gangs? It is incredible matter - every day hundred bomb-fighters come and dropping hundred bombs down to kill, to destroy as well our military on ground - many forces units, good arms and developed side by side supporting by civilians cooperation. So why this act I don't know and can't imagine.

    You may know this is translated poem from Arabic to English I wrote it firstly in Arabic then I translated it to English.
    I think it is not necessary to attach up the Arabic poem origin. Thank you all to read or discuss

    Best wishes, Mohammad. I don't understand the destruction of ancient history either.

    Hi Yes\No
    The minaret of a famous mosque in Mosul city. A city that still some parts of its right side unreleased and still under control of ISIS gangs who said that they did not destroy the minaret- the curved-shaped minaret that was built before 800 years and still loftily stands - ISIS accused US pilots who bombed it.This historical ancient antique is the last thing which remains intact of all remnants that ISIS destroyed as in Nimrud which situated in south of Mosul city.... You can see its photo in the attached first post
