Did Titor Predict Damage to the Pyramids?

As I watch the news from the world, it becomes impossible to not compare what I see to what Titor predicted for our times.

  In January of this year, after the Muslim Brotherhood took over in Egypt I speculated that soon afterward, the islamic extremist leaders there would soon call for the dismantling or destruction of the pyramids on the Giza Plateau.  Why?  Because there is precedent for this.  When the Taliban took over in Afghanistan, they immediately began destroying anything that was “unislamic.”  The Taliban even went so far as to ban radio.  For a quick recent-history lesson, let me remind you of the Taliban’s destruction of the Buddhist statue in Afghanistan

  So when the Muslim Brotherhood took over in Egypt, I was immediately reminded of the statements of a man from our future:
  In 2000, a time traveler named John Titor claimed one of the pyramids was damaged in his time.  This of course begs the question, how was it damaged?  Warfare would seem the obvious option, but warfare against whom?  The Israelis would seem a logical but unlikely option.  Similarly, would NATO purposefully target the Pyramids?  Again, this is not likely, especially considering the pains NATO (and Israeli, for that matter) takes in selecting their targets for airstrikes to avoid civilian casualties.  So who then?  That was when I remembered the Taliban’s actions in Afghanistan against the Buddhist statue.   
  So when the Muslim Brotherhood took over in Egypt, it appeared the last piece had fallen into place for the ultimate damaging of the pyramid, by Muslims themselves.  
 
  In 2000, someone asked: 
Are the Great Pyramids standing in 2036?”
Yes, although one of them was severely damaged.”
 

So you can imagine my thinking when I saw this today:

 Calls to Destroy Egypt’s Great Pyramids Begin
Posted By Raymond Ibrahim On July 10, 2012 @ 12:55 am In Daily Mailer,FrontPage 
According to several reports in the Arabic media, prominent Muslim clerics have begun to call for the demolition of Egypt’s Great Pyramids—or, in the words of Saudi Sheikh Ali bin Said al-Rabi‘i, those “symbols of paganism,” which Egypt’s Salafi party has long planned to cover with wax.    Most recently, Bahrain’s “Sheikh of Sunni Sheikhs” and President of National Unity, Abd al-Latif al-Mahmoud, called on Egypt’s new president, Muhammad Morsi, to “destroy the Pyramids and accomplish what the Sahabi Amr bin al-As could not.” 
This is a reference to the Muslim Prophet Muhammad’s companion, Amr bin al-As and his Arabian tribesmen, who invaded and conquered Egypt circa 641.  Under al-As and subsequent Muslim rule, many Egyptian antiquities were destroyed as relics of infidelity.  While most Western academics argue otherwise, according to early Muslim writers, the great Library of Alexandria itself—deemed a repository of pagan knowledge contradicting the Koran—was destroyed under bin al-As’s reign and in compliance with Caliph Omar’s command.

  No, I am not attempting to turn every last little tidbit of news into a “John Titor predicted it!” statement.  Nonetheless, the potential does exist now where before it did not.  As I watch current events unfold, it becomes a little eery to see it happen, as expected. 
I must imagine that, as we watch these things happen, we have some small insight into what a time traveler must experience and feel as he watches events unfold that he may have only read about in history books.  Likewise, it is entirely probable that he (our friend the time traveler) is watching these events unfold and has watched it happen several times already.  
By remaining vigilant, we get to share in that experience in some small measure.
