ISIL Destroys Ancient Assyrian Temple Dedicated to Nabu

I wish this was a fictitious story, but Yahoo News is reporting that the terrorist group, ISIL, has destroyed a 3,000 year old Assyrian temple in Northern Iraq.  If you watch the video, you will notice that the temple was one dedicated to a very familiar figure related to Dr. Fate, the god of wisdom known as Nabu.  The story also reports that the Gate of Nergal has also been torn down by ISIL erasing thousands of years of history.  I hope that Dr. Fate comics will inspire the youth to research history, so that our beginnings as a civilization are not forgotten.  The story can be found here: https://www.yahoo.com/news/islamic-state-video-shows-assyrian-temple-blown-iraq-111925462.html
