PAKISTAN

Another attack on the giant Buddha of Swat

In the valley of Swat, north western Pakistan, Islamic militants have launched a second attack in less than a month on the gigantic sacred statue. The head, shoulders and feet have been destroyed while the militants threaten a third and final attack.

Islamabad (AsiaNews) – A group of Islamic militants have attacked for the second time in less than a month the giant Buddha carved in the rocks of Swat Valley, in north western Pakistan.

Despite the many requests for greater protection, the government has failed to intervene in any way to defend the 40 metre tall statue, the second only in importance to the already destroyed Bamiyan Buddha.

The first attack, due to the extremists inexperience, had not caused irreparable damage, but this second one has destroyed the face, shoulders and feet of the sacred image. At the moment, the militants threaten a third and final assault.

Vishakha N. Desai, president of the Asia Society writes: “In 2001, The world watched in horror when Taliban forces destroyed the monumental Buddha statues in Bamiyan, Afghanistan. Political and cultural leaders from around the globe condemned the attacks. And yet in Pakistan the same disaster is repeated unpunished”.

The Swat Valley is considered a sort of “dam” between the northern reaches of the country, theatre of numerous clashes between pro-tale ban forces and the army. Currently, thanks to the state of emergency proclaimed by president Musharraf November 3rd last, it has been deprived of protection.

Just as liberalism is a mental disorder (a popular saying by radio icon Michael Savage) it is obvious that Islamism too is a mental disorder.

Where are all of the Hollywood libs who practice Buddhism? They should be justifiably outraged and demanding the end to this Islamofascist thuggery. Where is Richard Gere who professes to be a devout Buddhist? Maybe he is too busy playing with his pet gerbils.

The destruction of these ancient Buddha statues and icons is simply Orwellian. This is the erasing of human history. If these Islamofascists were to take over Egypt they would undoubtedly proceed to destroy the ancient pyramids and the Sphinx (finishing up the job that Hitler began) since these ancient pagan icons are not Islamic.

A religion that justifies the destruction of human history is evil incarnate.

They should be labeled as Buhhaphobes and Christopohobes and prosecuted as perpetrators of hate-crimes. For those who still want to sit down and “reason” with these folks, you really need a reality check. They can’t be “reasoned with”, they only want destruction. I say we accommodate them and give them destruction - THEIRS!

The people doing this are fanatics.

All Mohammads: "Yea! Let's do it!"

Mohammad II: "That Giant Buddha has a big ass! Let's smell it before we blow it up!"

I had always heard that the nazi army blew off the nose of the Sphinx when Hitler invaded and occupied North Africa.

I’ll have to do some research on this...

This is just the beginning. If they take over Europe, all the greatest art of centuries of Western culture--cathedrals, statues of saints, Christ, and the Virgin Mary--will be destroyed or desecrated.

Just once I’d enjoy seeing a muzzie mullah running naked down a road..smoldering flesh attached to his back...from where the napalm was dropped. You want to conquer the tribal territories of Pakistan?? Napalm, Daisy Cutters and more of both. Time to rain hell upon these Orcs. (Apologies to Orcs)

“...it is obvious that Islamism too is a mental disorder.”

What sort of mental disorder causes someone to call Mohammedanism “The Religion of Peace”?

Same for Jerusalem.

Wasn't it the Church Of The Nazarene in Jeruslem where some Muslim "militants" desecrated the church including reliving themselves in the most holy spots?

From what I can tell, the history of the Sphinx’s missing nose is subject to much speculation.

From Wikipedia:

Missing nose

The one-metre-wide nose on the face is missing. Some legends claim that the nose was broken off by a cannon ball fired by Napoléon’s soldiers and that it still survives, as do diverse variants indicting British troops, Mamluks, and others. However, sketches of the Sphinx by Dane Frederick Lewis Norden made in 1737 and published in 1755 illustrate the Sphinx without a nose. The Egyptian historian al-Maqrizi, writing in the fifteenth century, attributes the vandalism to Muhammad Sa’im al-Dahr, a Sufi fanatic from the khanqah of Sa’id al-Su’ada. In 1378, upon finding the Egyptian peasants making offerings to the Sphinx in the hope of increasing their harvest, Sa’im al-Dahr was so outraged that he destroyed the nose, and was lynched for vandalism. Al-Maqrizi describes the Sphinx as the “Nile talisman” on which the locals believed the cycle of inundation depended.

“Did Napoleon’s troops shoot the nose off the Sphinx?”

Muhammad al-Husayni Taqi al-Din al-Maqrizi (died CE 1442), in a book called “al-Mawa`iz wa al-i`tibar fi dhikr al-khitat wa al-athar” states that the face, specifically the nose and ears, were demolished in 1378 by a Sufi named Sa’im al-dahr, however the ears are still there. Frederick Lewis Norden sketched the Sphinx in 1737 and published detailed drawings in 1755 showing the Sphinx with no nose. The nose was gone by 1737 at least by 1755 .Napoleon Bonaparte wasn’t in Egypt until 1798, 50 or at least 30 years later.. http://www.catchpenny.org/nose.html

Maybe my Hitler reference was just me thinking back to that movie “Raiders of the Lost Ark” and of nazis occupying Egypt.

Oh well. I do have the occasional “brain fart.”

Anyways...I have no doubt that the Islamofascists WOULD destroy these ancient icons if they had the chance.

No disorder whatsoever (but I only speak for myself and my usage of this phrase.)

You should note that I put “The Religion of Peace” in quotes because this term is exactly what supporters, apologists and propagandists for Islam call this religion.

When I reference this term, I always put it in quotes and I use this as a sarcastic reference to the religion.

Also, there is a blog devoted to covering the crimes and brutality committed in the name of Islam, Muhammad and Allah. The site is called “The Religion of Peace.”

Our forefathers knew this cult as mohammedanism and called it such. Churchill called this cult by its rightful name, mohammedanism. It is lowley a cult known as mohammedanism and should be called what it is!

You never hear the leftoids complain about stuff like this as crimes against humanity, instead Bush gets accused of that.

These people are incredibly insecure. If they were so sure of their theology, they wouldn’t be fearful of other religions. It is a waste of time to treat fanatics like these as though they were members of a legitimate religion.

I disagree, Darwin may have had a point in explaining eveloution. Given time, dogs and pigs will interbreed and produce a muslim.

“I disagree, Darwin may have had a point in explaining eveloution. Given time, dogs and pigs will interbreed and produce a muslim.”

Now you see, that gives me food for thought. After watching the denizens of criminal court for the past 34 years, I assumed that Darwin must have been wrong otherwise the majority of those creatures would have been eaten by bears long before they got old enough to commit crimes.

The logic of your thought, together with the obvious genetic history of Mohammedans, however, will make me rethink my position.
