While I can't agree with the nonsense about refusing to return
"religious" artifacts to states/social formations that no longer revere
them, as a historian I believe that the case of the Buddhas of Bamyan
creates serious concerns about "repatriation," which I place in quotes
because of the rather ahistorical construction that links the
present-day states of Iraq or Egypt with the states/social formations
that existed in those geographical areas millennia ago. That does not
mean, of course, that allowing them to remain with the imperialist
thieves who took them is a good idea either. Just that this issue is a
bit more complicated than we'd like.
