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.

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.
You mean Napoleon, right?
“A religion that justifies the destruction of human history is evil incarnate.”
The people doing this are fanatics.
Mohammad I: "Hey guys, what do you want to do today? "
Mohammad II: "I have some black cloth, let's hang it in the middle of the room and pretend it's a hot man. No! I meant a hot babe! Yea, a hot babe!"
Mohammad III: "We must all go pray now after you said that Mohammad II! Allah be praised! We must go see the Imam and atone for your sins!"
Mohammad I: "Go to mosque? None of us ever get on the front row! That's for the old guys and they will never let us up there. Anyone noticed that they never blow themselves up either? Just one day without smelling man butt please! Just one day!"
Mohammad II: "I like man butt!"
Mohammad I: "Hey! Let's go blow ourselves up! Wait! Uh, that's not what I meant. Let's go blow up that Giant Buddha! Yea!"
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’m glad I’m not driving because I’m ROTFLMAO, great post.
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.
Somewhere there’s a black rock that needs to be busted.
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?
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 NapolÃÂ©ons 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.
Buddha of Swat, Heck that even outranks the Sultan of Swat.
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.”

I didn’t mean you, DB, but rather our “leaders” who seem so enamored of the phrase.
