in all truth ALL Buddhists DO need to start standing up against islam . Enough of all the Gandhi crap , it only gets more Buddhists slaughtered .
Do they really want no Buddhism at all?
That will be the outcome if islam ever gets it’s way.

Buddhists that fail as cockroaches and earthworms then come back as Muslims.

What? Islamic extremists making an effort to erradicate other religions? I must say, that I would have never seen this coming. </sarcasm>

Islamic militants sure know how to win friends and influence people. That’s why the populace in Iraq is turning against them. Blessings be to Allah...

Islam , and muslims, do appear to be incompatible with any other non-muslim peoples and/or other religions , and /or non- muslim cultures .

Perhaps they can pray to their Allah to transport them to their own strictly islamic planet and leave this one in peace...

with todays trends , there sure ain’t room enough for both of us.

The other alternative:
The United State soldiers, sailors and Marines:
facilitating the meeting of our enemies with their maker since 1775.
(oh, and those late-comer airmen have done their part as well)

uh Ghandi was a Hindu...lol And there have always been orders of Buddhist monks who have played a role in protecting their own interests even if it meant taking up arms.

I should also have added that the Buddhists have been long gone from these areas for many centuries. The same with the Buddhists in Afghanistan, those were settlements that dotted the silk road.

“uh Ghandi was a Hindu.”

yes , of course , I know this .
Gandhi-esque pacifism however has usually been a
basic precept of Buddhists as well.

I think even noble Buddhism needs to make an exception
when it comes to Islam
Islam is the ravenous demon that will eat this world
if given the chance .
We must not let that happen .

Of course Buddhism is long gone from those areas , and
how did it leave? At the point of the moslem sword .
Now , they even seek to wipe out any memory and all
last vestiges of the legacy ....

First the icons of ancient Buddhism there , tomorrow the
rest of the non-muslim world.
Fight back now , while there is still time.
