You have to really mistreat eastern religions like Buddhists a lot to get them to go nuts like this.

Sounds like India. When the Muslims pissed off the Hindu’s bad enough they also acted in a similar way.

Apparently the only kind of anti-religion bias that excites the west.

Meanwhile muslims are slaughtering their way across the ME and Africa.

“...The attacks were led by a mob from Bodu Bala Sena, or Buddhist Power Force, which rails against the country’s Muslim minority...”

It’s entirely probable that they’re just trying to keep it from becoming a muslim MAJORITY. Because, after all, we all know the “utopia” THAT brings...

"Is Sri Lanka now part of the EU? If not, then the EU should mind it's own Frick’n business."

I just checked a New York Times article from last November that reported that ONE-THIRD of European Jews were considering leaving Europe because of fears of growing anti-Semitism. But the article was somewhat dismissive, saying that "only" 4% of Jews had experienced physical violence or the threat of violence in the previous year (I did the math and that would be "only" 44,000 Jews - 4% of 1.1 million). 1.1 million is about the size of - what? - the St. Louis metro area? Would the Times be so bland if "only" 44,000 gays in a major American city were threatened with violence every year?

Bastards. They didn’t say a thing when the ROP was raping, murdering, maiming and burning. Now the non-ROP rises up, and the “EU” is mad.

Screw you, EU.

Muslims on the receiving end of violence for once? Fine with me because that religion is a menace that should never be allowed to take root in a non-muslim country.
