"...mobs of angry Buddhists burned hundreds of homes?"  Somebody isn't completely clear on this Buddhism concept.

The government slaughters thousands of Myanmarmites and the solution is for the Buddhists to attack Muslims.

Big Brother has manipulated these peons well.

Al Jazeera posting news about violence against muslims? Seems logical.

Anyone look at Al Jazeera enough to know if they cover all of the violence commited BY muslims on their neighbors?

From their front page:  http://www.aljazeera.com/

Conflicting death tolls in Nigeria violence
Three more arrests in Boston bombing case
Bangladesh minister rebuts safety criticism
Deadly bombings rock Iraqi cities

So I'd say "yes".

There's a lot of different ethnic groups in Burma, and they don't all get alone with each other. They weren't attacking the Muslim's over the government killing of hill tribe peoples.

This.  AJ is a pretty solid news source.  I started visiting the site because I was sort of hoping for a shot of "death to america" goodness, but ended up staying for the solid reporting.

It appears clear that any religion can lead to violence and oppression, it's just we don't hear as much about them in their native lands.

Just like how every Christian turns the other cheek, loves their neighbors as they love themselves, and spends the better part of the day helping those less fortunate than themselves.

Belief systems never stop people from being crazy. People just warp them to justify their craziness.

There's a lot of buddhism which can easily be interpreted as justification for being selfish, and only caring about yourself and your thoughts, but the true teachings would say that's being ruled by ego and the material illusion of separation. As much as i respect buddhism, i'm as wary of buddhists as i am members of any other belief system.

This is legit and the Buddhists are actually the aggressors. I never thought I'd see a Buddhist monk beating down an unarmed man, but that is what has been happening over there. It's pretty farking horrifying and I hope the UN will step in and try to put an end to this.

This one is very disturbing and NSFW. I am only posting it to make people aware of atrocities that are not being covered by US media, and not for shock value.

barefoot in the head: Once again, Fark confuses the principles of a discipline with those who follow those principles only poorly.


"A faith that despises the mind and the free individual, that preaches submission and resignation, and that regards life as a poor and transient thing is ill equipped for self-criticism.  Those who become bored by conventional "bible" religions and seek enlightenment by way of the dissolution of their own critical faculties into nirvana in any form had better take a warning.  They may think they are leaving the realm of despised materialism, but they are still being asked to put their reason to sleep, and to discard their minds along with their sandals." - Christopher Hitchens, an excerpt from chapter 14 of "God is not Great"

/I'm afraid you'll find religious apologetics every bit as impossible a task as your forebearers in this discipline

most FreeTibet drones don't know that those tibetan monks have had plenty of rampages through the local area with plenty of destruction involved.

If I were talking about the discipline of handwashing religiously, but do it badly then die of dysentery, are the principles of handwashing to blame?
