Rapidly-Chaotic Collapse of the Cradle of Civilization

The visuals that come from Mosul, the town that is under the complete control of ISIS – the Islamic State of Iraq and Levant - are pretty disturbing for both Muslims and non-Muslims alike; apart from endless human suffering, the well-orchestrated destruction of ancient mosques, shrines and churches, the magnificent monument that stood the test of time for centuries, is not something pleasant to watch, even if you don’t belong to any of the sects of the religions in question.
