The most sacred places in Christendom are under the control of Islamic terrorists dedicated to the destruction of Israel and the Jewish religion. They have conned much of the West into thinking that they, the vanguard of a one billion strong religion, are the victims of Israeli aggression. They have too many of us believing that their terrorism against civilians are justified acts of defense against a Nazi-like oppressor. How do we know that they are the vanguard? Because every Muslim in the world, from the Queen of Jordan through to Osama bin Ladin, takes the side of the most vile terrorists ever seen before 9/11. How vile? Remember the Munich Olympics of 1972?

But Christians and Jews are not the sole targets of Islamic aggression. They are, in the Muslim view, people of the book, and entitled to some protection under Islam if they fail to submit to Allah. It’s called Dhimmitude and it is the fate awaiting those of us who fail to recognize the true nature of Islam. Other religions fare less well.

Muslim antipathy to Buddhism made headlines when the Taliban destroyed the two Buddhas statues carved into the cliffs of Bamiyan, despite world-wide protests. Even the UN didn’t think it was a good idea.

Islam is threatening other holy Buddhist sites. A Buddhist Frontpage Contributor writes:

I was seated underneath the holy Maha Bodhi Tree in Bodh Gaya, in the state of Bihar in India. … This was my second visit to this unparalleled location, the site of the Lord Buddha�s attainment of full Enlightenment over 2,500 years ago …I had applied for and been granted the great honor of permission to spend the night within the Maha Bodhi compound….My plan was to spend the entire night practicing seated meditation, walking meditation, and circumambulation of the great Maha Bodhi Stupa. The air was warm and my practice was going very well as I alternated between the three practices, as the hours passed.

The beautiful waning full moon light filtering through the glistening leaves of the Maha Bodhi Tree, the soft fluttering of the leaves, the serene quiet, took me back to that time long ago when the Buddha himself had sat very near this same exact spot.

Or so I thought��.

The mussein�s call to prayer for the faithful of Islam, here in this most sacred location to all of Buddhism, ripped me back to modern reality. I was stunned! How could this be? Here in one of the most significant spots of Buddhism, loud speakers come on at four in the morning every day, to shock and intrude upon meditators and Buddhist practitioners using this spot for that which it has to offer in its most special way?

Does Islam respect other religions? It doesn’t appear so. That might explain the paucity of churches, synagogues, temples and ACLU offices in the Muslim world.

Thailand is a predominantly Buddhist country. The South is partially Muslim and their holy warriors have been slaughtering Buddhists at a great rate. On a per head basis, Muslim terrorists in Thailand are doing far better than Muslim terrorists in the US. Little Green Footbals notes some Islamic activity in Thailand:

Suspected Muslim insurgents shot and killed two Buddhist laborers and then beheaded one of them as deadly violence and scattered bombings continued Wednesday in restive southern Thailand, police said.

Beheading seems to be so fashionable amongst the elite of the Muslim world. KSM beheaded Daniel Pearl and Indonesian Muslims beheaded three Christian school girls on their way to school. Maybe they were inspired by their prophet, who acquiesced in the beheading of hundreds of Jewish male prisoners. Our peaceful Muslim friends seem to be big fans of beheading.

Perhaps we should install a guillotine at Gitmo. When its work is done, then we could close Gitmo.
