The attackers stormed in close to midnight, tearing through town with gasoline bombs and clubs before carting away piles of cash and jewelry they stole from Muslim families in this tiny corner of Sri Lanka.
The onslaught incited by the Bodu Bala Sena, or Buddhist Power Force, a hard-line group that has gained thousands of followers in recent years, killed at least two Muslims and injured dozens more last month in the worst religious violence Sri Lanka has seen in decades.
Now, President Mahinda Rajapaksas government is under fire, accused of failing to protect Sri Lankas tiny Muslim minority and allowing radical Buddhists spewing illegal hate speech to operate with impunity for years.

This is interesting!
I had dinner with some Buddhists the other night, and they were decrying the “Violent Extremist Buddhists” who were “not following the teachings of the Buddha”.
I explained that, when Buddhists do something violent or immoral, the “Peaceful Buddhists” rebuke them and say they are going against the teachings of their religion.
When a Christian Clergyman is found out to be involved in immoral activity, he is repudiated by his congregation, and often resigns in disgrace (This just happened in my south Florida Christian Community).
BUT, when muslims fly a plane into a building and kill 3000 Americans, there is no outcry amongst the “Peaceful muslims”. I patiently explained that this is because they are actually FOLLOWING their religion when they do these violent acts.
My Buddhist friends didn’t believe me. So I quoted the pertinent verses of the koran from memory.
They were stunned.
The rest of the world needs to wake up and start killing Muslims or at least drive them out.
Rabid dogs need killing.
It can’t be easy to piss off a Buddhist. But if anyone can manage it, it’s a mooseslime.
