(AFP) At the Maldives National Museum, smashed Buddhist statues are testament to the rise of Islamic extremism and Taliban-style intolerance in a country famous as a laid-back holiday destination.
On Tuesday, as protesters backed by mutinous police toppled president Mohamed Nasheed, a handful of men stormed the Chinese-built museum and destroyed its display of priceless artifacts from the nations pre-Islamic era.
They have effectively erased all evidence of our Buddhist past, a senior museum official told AFP at the now shuttered building in the capital Male, asking not to be named out of fear for his own safety.
We lost all our 12th century statues. They were made of coral stone and limestone. They are very brittle and there is no way we can restore them, he explained.

Can’t we just capsize the Maldives?

Move follows protests by Islamists also seeking ban on alcohol
The Indian Ocean archipelago with 300,000 people and 1,192 tiny coral islands is known for its exquisite resorts.
Some 3,000 people at last week’s protest called on the government to halt what they called “anti-Islamic” activities. Sunni Islam is the official religion in the Maldives and practicing any other faith is forbidden.
The Buddha had more smarts in one of his hair follicles than Mo-Ham-Mad and his followers have demonstrated in the last ~1400 years.
He destroyed all of them.
“but Bush protected his buddies in Saudi and Egypt....Crony capitalism triumphed”
I imagine that G.W. Bush asked himself, “Are we ready for a global religious war with 1.3 billion potential enemy, or is there a safer way.”
Are you ready to declare war on all Islam?
Yes, I know that significant sections of Islam HAVE declared war on everyone else on the planet, including some of their own. Some even long for global chaos in order to hasten the return of the Mahdi.
If YOUR finger is on the trigger, whom will you shoot next? Which weapons will you use?
This will not be an easy war to win. “Nuke ‘em all; let God sort them out” sounds tough, but ain’t gonna work. Think it through.
Just a quick thought...God takes control and Jesus finally sets up his kingdom. What do you think will happen to all of the “historic” temples, idols in museums, big hindu statues....perhaps even icons and images “devoted to Chrisitanity”? From a Christian perspective...do you really think God will let any of that stuff stay around...”for history’s sake” and for the sake of “educational perspective”?
(hint...it’s all gonna be “shaken down” both in the Earth and Heavenly realms...)
I expect that when the fundamental Muslims who now have about 76% of the seats in EGYPT solidify power, the Pyramids and Sphinxes will be targeted for destruction. - Tom
It's not insecurity. It's a tactic. They destroy evidence that anything other than Islam was ever there, and then they lie and say nothing other than Islam was ever there.
They do this in Israel, denying that their mosque was ever the site of Solomon's temple, and saying that Jerusalem is one of Islam's holiest sites.
They do it in other countries where they tear down cathedrals and temples, and build mosques in their places, then deny that other religions were ever there.
It's simply control of information by a totalitarian regime.
You haven’t seen anything yet. Barry Hussein Obama is flooding our country with Muzzies, used the U S military to set up radicals in Libya, helped the Muslim Brotherhood take over Egypt, is doing all he can to overthrow Syria.
The Muslim Brotherhood is sworn to destroy Israel, ever notice Barry does all he can to irritate Israel?
Our first reality show host playing President is sponsored by the Muzzies who want to enslave you and yours. Barry is a raving success destroying America a $Trillion at a time.
Your representatives in Washington have decided to let us vote him out, there will be no messy impeachment foolishness. Clinton proved that would never work.
Religion of Peace alert
You are a fool.
It's only a small island chain...but didn't Obama release a handful of Gitmo prisoners to Bermuda?
Will any of the 'oh so cool and with it' liberals object to this? Waiting, waiting, waiting...

Thanks Nachum. There are hints of this intolerance in Thor Heyerdahl's book "The Maldive Mystery".
The Buddha was enlightened. These people only want the darkness.
I hate this “religion” more and more. It’s getting worse, like cholera.
