Pamela Geller Mistakes History’s Greatest Monument to Love for the Epicenter of Evil
(Hat Tip: JasonA)
Pretty spooky, eh? Look at that evil looking building with it’s Sharia compliant dome. Looks to be covered in that squiggly writing from Al Qaeda videos on Youtube. Is it a terrorist command center of some sort? Bin Laden’s favorite mosque? No, it’s not a mosque at all. It’s the Taj Mahal which is a tomb and a monument to love.
In 1631, Shah Jahan, emperor during the Mughal empire’s period of greatest prosperity, was grief-stricken when his third wife, Mumtaz Mahal, died during the birth of their fourteenth child, Gauhara Begum. Construction of the Taj Mahal began in 1632, one year after her death. The court chronicles of Shah Jahan’s grief illustrate the love story traditionally held as an inspiration for Taj Mahal. The principal mausoleum was completed in 1648 and the surrounding buildings and garden were finished five years later.
Lists of recommended travel destinations often feature the Taj Mahal, which also appears in several listings of seven wonders of the modern world
But I guess since it looks Muslim enough Pam finds it suitably scary.
