Which is odd because the Kaaba (Muslims believe it is a space rock, or something) is the holiest site in Islam. The “worship stone” reference refers to one of the rituals Muslims perform during the pilgrimage to Mecca where they throw stones at three walls to symbolize stoning the Devil.

(APA) – Representatives of the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (ISIS) stated that they will ruin the Kaaba after capturing Saudi Arabia.

APA reports quoting Turkish media that ISIS wants to take control of Arar city of Saudi Arabia and start operations here.

ISIS member Abu Turab Al Mugaddasi said that they would destroy the Kaaba in Mecca: “If Allah wills, we will kill those who worship stones in Mecca and destroy the Kaaba. People go to Mecca to touch the stones, not for Allah.”
