I've been in many a forum on Islam in the past week and there are many who portray Islamic Jihadism as being a problem between Christianity and Islam.

This is not actually the case as these videos below will show. Buddhism is also rising up against it as well. The Rohingya people of Burma are perhaps the most forgotten and most persecuted people of the world today.

It would seem that nobody is aware of the plight of these people, nor are they aware of the fact that another religion takes issue with Islam.




The most shocking thing in this video is the point the old man makes;

'There are many Islam nations out there, will not one of them take us in?'

Good point actually. These are Muslim people and they want to live the Muslim way. Isis wants to create a Muslim religious state. I don't see them doing the Muslim thing and welcoming these people in. Nor do I see peaceful developed nations like Malaysia offering any support.


For those of you who are in shock and disbelief at the thought of Buddhism doing this and asking 'is this really true?' here is another vid telling more about the Buddhist involvement in this.

Buddhist are no saint. These *********** are terrorist in plain site. Persecution of Muslims in Burma? Nobody ******* cares here. Everyone is programmed about ISIS, HEBDO = Islam and Muslim. This will mean squat to them. Thanks to MSM.

I see it more of a Islam Vs the world than any one religion.

Let's be honest...anyone that is NOT MUSLIM is in danger of being killed by their extremist nut jobs while the rest of the 'moderate Muslims' watch and do nothing about the murder and rape of innocents.

Except the issue is they are killing people of their own faith who dont subscribe to the extremist doctrine they are pushing.....

That is part of the point I am trying to make. Why are Buddhists, who integrate here into Western civilisaton seamlessly rising up against Islam, and Islam only?

The other point is that while I 100% do not condone ethnic cleansing, WHY are the Muslim nations not taking these people in with open arms?

The old man clearly says he wants to go to a Muslim country, and I think it's a good idea as they will fit in with the religious culture. We've seen in the west how Islam is struggling to adapt to our way of life all too well, so let's help these people but in the right way that will see them happy in the long run.

Maybe it's because western buddhists aren't extremist. My advisement (homeroom) teacher in high school was a buddhist. She was blond, anorexic-skinny, and dressed like she thought she was 15 when she was 50. She was a byotch but also a buddhist apparently. I think it's probably more of a vogue thing here and not like the buddhists who set themselves on fire. Maybe it has something to do with history. I'm not sure about the Moors v. Buddhists but maybe someone else knows more about if that went down in the past.

Valid point. I have no idea.

Saudi Arabia gives $50 mn aid to Myanmar Muslims

Here's a (un-related topic) video I'd suggest you watch. A moderate Muslim speaking out about Charlie Hebdo shootings! (Contains excessive profanity)

I am not sure what part of the west you hail from but here in Canada the Muslims seem to be getting along just fine.

Chinese seem to have trouble adapting here. They need their own town and no laws we make will keep them from shark fin or your cat if found outside. They won't even put english writing on their store signs unless the city fines them. They don't need us and they don't want us. Just our land and fresh water.

They do the same to the Tamil Tigers in Burma.



Also to the poster above...

"World domination under Sharia", is an oxymoron...

Sharia Law is for Muslims only...

But spreading fear is a classical attempt at deflection from the persecution in the OP.



Such a tolerant Christian.

It wasn't exactly "nuff said"...
It was actually "very little but predictably said".

In the United States first foreign war (with Islam coincidentally)

In 1786, Thomas Jefferson and John Adams met with Tripoli’s ambassador to Great Britain. They asked this ‘diplomat’ by what right his nation attacked American ships and enslaved her citizens and why the Muslims held such hostility toward this new nation, with which neither Tripoli nor any of the other Barbary Coast nations had any previous contact. The answer was quite revealing. Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja (the ambassador) replied that ”


Islam: “Was founded on the Laws of their Prophet, that it was written in their Qur’an, that all nations who should not have acknowledged their authority were sinners, that it was their right and duty to make war upon them wherever they could be found, and to make slaves of all they could take as Prisoners, and that every Musselman (Muslim) who should be slain in battle was sure to go to Paradise.

If someone said that to me I would probably find a new shipping lane. If I wanted someone to know I meant business I might explain that my hostility is a matter of faith and not up for debate.

It is pretty hypocritical that the US would sweat what was done to it's people when they went too close to a foreign nation, when you consider what the Christian US was doing to the natives of "their" land around the same period.

Did Muslims come to America and attack them?

The Muslims here are more united than the Chinese compare to the past. That is why they don't have much trouble adapting because they are supporting each other. The Chinese here are quite divided and following the government educational regulation. Think about it. Do Chinese go to mosques/churches? Hell no. They need Chinatown to maintain their culture. The government is causing too much interference on Chinatown. Also, Canadian Muslims speak mostly English fluently in Canada.

Chinese is all about preserving culture and language. In Canada it isn't really that preserved, freaking have a harder time too. In Canada, your forced to learn French, but not enough time to learn your own language. Also Chinatown is one of the main sources of tourism, therefore too busy working than teaching kids. You don't see Tourists going to Mosques.

The above passage is not a reference to a declaration by al Qaeda or some Iranian fatwa. They are the words of Thomas Jefferson, then the U.S. ambassador to France, reporting to Secretary of State John Jay a conversation he'd had with Sidi Haji Abdul Rahman Adja, Tripoli's envoy to London, in 1786 -- more than two and a quarter centuries ago.




So where did Abdul Rahman Adja's bin Laden-esque words come from?

They couldn't have been a response to American imperialism (the start of the conflict precedes the presidency of George Washington), U.S. foreign policy, globalization, AIPAC or Islamophobia. Yet his words are virtually identical to those spouted ad nauseum by jihadists today who justify their bellicosity as a reaction to these U.S.-centric factors, which were nonexistent in Adja's time.

Will this kind of thing ever end? I understand why people choose religion, believing in a better place in the next life.

I am thankful that I live here where I do but I still feel bad for the people in other countries with situations like this. They have little control over the situation. I may have some issues with some of the things in our government, but it is still a good system overall. Definitely better than I see in many other areas of the world. It just needs a little tuneup, socialized medicine is the most important change here that I feel is necessary. We need to take extreme profit out of medicine. People are abusing this system.

Now how did I get so off topic in such a short post?

That sort of absolutism is what keeps human beings at each others throats.

The vast majority of people of all faiths, or no faith for that matter, just want to be left alone by the small minority of trouble makers in the world and live in peace.

See, the problem is that these "violent minorities" come to power due to their ruthlessness.

I've been noticing this quite frequently lately on this very site. Nobody has an opinion anymore, everything is spoken in "absolutes". Absolute, absolutes. Locked and loaded. It's quite off-putting.
