    According to the New York Times, ISIS destroyed the ancient temple of Baal in Syria; however,

    arches of the temple will be constructed in New York & London among other cities to celebrate World Heritage Day.  Why are some people are going conspiratorial regarding the construction of the arches?

    1. They want to believe in a demonic new world order, and thus say the arches are really moved, not destroyed.
    2. They don't want to admit ISIS and other Islamic groups seek to erase history, a history that goes back to the burning of the Bagdad and Alexandrian libraries by Muslims. In short, they don't want to ascribe yet another cultural genocide act to Islam.

    Some people find very disturbing that these arches belonged to a place where worship of Baal occurred.  If you know the bible, Baal is a false god, and probably a demon, that many mistakenly worshipped.  Worshipping Baal required the sacrifice of children and sexual acts.

    The destruction of the arches is in line with Islamic thought( read ISI), where any culture that does not conform to Islamic thought must be destroyed. people who oppose the reconstruction are in reality sympathisers of Islamic thought for whatever Baal was any ancient monument is heritage and needs to be preserved. So when you oppose the reconstruction, it means playing the Islamic game.
