    Amusing to see how many Boomers fled their parents’ religion to embrace the allegedly non-violent, peace-loving, life of harmlessness they thought Buddhism was. Apparently Buddhism has a lot of people just filthy with human nature.

    Considering what happens to anyone unlucky enough to be a non-Muslim (or even the wrong kind of Muslim) in any majority-Muslim state whatsoever, no matter how secular, the idea of sending such populations back to their fellow Islamic states before they grow too large has considerable merit. Certainly a better idea than sticking your head in the stand and squawking endlessly about how peaceful the world’s most bloody religion supposedly is, like our “leaders”.

      I happened to have spent a week in Malaysia, a moderate Muslim country, in Penang. There’s a large Indian and Chinese population there…persecuted by the Muslim majority. Islam is, currently, incapable of defending human rights…of course, no religion can.

        Christianity can, has and does.

          What were William Penn and Roger Williams famous for?

          Oh yeah…religious freedom from Christian persecution.

          As the late Rabbi and historian Arthur Hertzberg once stated ‘no Christian govt in history ever protected the civil rights of Jews’

            And yet…they were both Christians. Odd, isn’t it?

    And the Muslims in Burma are not spreading hate too WRM?I have read that there have indeed been rapes by Muslims provoking this situation, but in any case I find it hard to believe that the Muslims in Burma have been unlike many Muslims elsewhere – intolerant and ready to use violence. i suspect strongly what we are seeing here is a non Muslim population that, unlike the West, is willing to defend itself in exactly the way it is being attacked.

    With all the troubles in the world, please forgive me if I don’t get too worked up about people treating Muslims the way Muslims treat everybody else.

    Burna thinks the Rohyinga muslims are from Bengal, and thus Bangladeshi ‘citizens’.
    Another unresolved legacy of the former British Empire, when all of Burma was part of India.
