Atleast Saddam restored ancient persian ruins, even if it was for propaganda reasons.

RE: The Jihad boys strike again
From the article:

Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) militants have destroyed a temple at Syria's ancient ruins of Palmyra, CBS News has confirmed. The attack has realized the worst fears archaeologists had for the 2,000-year-old Roman-era city after the extremists seized it and beheaded a local scholar.

Palmyra, one of the Middle East's most spectacular archaeological sites and a UNESCO World Heritage site, sits near the modern Syrian city of the same name. Activists said the militants used explosives to blow up the Baalshamin Temple on its grounds, the blast so powerful it also damaged some of the Roman columns around it.

The site dates back to the first century AD, and has survived numerous invaders and occupiers. People of the religions of Islam, Christianity, and Judaism have joined together to protect for nearly 2000 years. It is seen as one of the most important archaeological sites in the world.
