    A man walks at the Sidi Jubran shrine, which was destroyed by Salafists, in Zlitan city, about 160 km (90 miles) west of Tripoli March 13, 2012. The shrine's caretaker Faraj al-Shimi, who lives nearby, said he witnessed the desecration one afternoon when he heard the rumble of a tractor outside his house. According to al-Shimi, he saw 16 bearded Salafis carrying Kalashnikovs, who broke the tomb using a Caterpillar tractor. Salafis believe Islam should be followed in the simple, ascetic form practised by the Prophet Mohammed and his disciples. Any later additions to the faith - including tombs or lavish grave markings - are viewed by them as idolatry. Picture taken March 13, 2012.

    In this photo taken, Thursday, May 10, 2012, Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin E. Dempsey speaks during a briefing at the Pentagon. A course for U.S. military officers was teaching that America is at war with Muslims, suggesting the U.S. ultimately may have to wipe out Islamic holy cities like Mecca and Medina just as it destroyed Hiroshima in World War II. That teaching is counter to repeated assertions by U.S. officials over the last decade that the U.S. is at war against terrorists who distort Islam _ not against the religion itself. The Defense Department suspended the course at the Joint Forces Staff College last month due to the inflammatory materials, but details of what was taught were first revealed Thursday. Dempsey called the material objectionable, irresponsible and against American values on freedom of religion. (AP Photo/Susan Walsh)

    An Iranian family picnics while marking the ancient festival of Sizdeh Bedar, or public picnic day, at the end of thirteen-day Iranian New Year holidays, outside the northeastern city of Esfarayen, Iran, Sunday, April 1, 2012. Iranians flocked to parks and orchards to mark Sizdeh Bedar, an ancient festival that predates Islam and goes back thousands of years to the time when Zorastrianism was the predominant religion of Persia. Although the hard-line ruling clerics of today's Islamic Republic have discouraged many pre-Islamic rituals, they have failed to put Iranians off the Persian New Year, or Nowruz, and its ending celebration of Sizdeh Bedar.
