    Re: Muslim vs Buddhist mob violence threatens new Myanmar image

    When it comes to islam, it doesn't matter whether they are the minority or the majority. They will cause violence and bloodsheds. The people who believe in that faith and the people who sympathize with its people will always whine and cry that they are the victims even though they are the ones causing the troubles and the bloodsheds.

    In Indonesia, the most populous muslims in the world, yet nobody cries for the small minority of Christians who were beheaded by the fanatic muslims. The ethnic Chinese were attacked a few times also in the past. What is their excuse? Muslim minority being discriminated?

    Same with Blangadesh and Pakistan. They had quite a significant populations of Hindus in those countries before the partition, but now? Hindus are almost extinct in those islamic hell hole. Muslim minority being discriminated?

    Yea right.

    Interesting. Do you have evidence or proof that suggests that the Muslim minority in the USA commits violence at a higher rate than Americans of any other faiths?
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    No I don't. But, it doesn't matter.

    Muslims who become religious and turn violence will kill in the name of their allah according to the practice of mohammed and his followers. People of other faiths in America don't kill in the name of their God, or gods. They kill not because of religious ground. They kill because of the dark side of their human nature.

    Western Christians have killed in the name of God/Yahweh/Jesus since Christianity became of consequence.

    Hell, in America today we have our fair share of religious zealots killing in the name of God.

    If they do they are not following the teaching of the Bible. Show me where in the Bible that Christian God commanded Christians to kill unbelievers for the cause of God? Show me the open ended commands to kill from Christian God.

    If the bible DOESN'T have that text, doesn't that make the actions of Christians even worse, since there is no compelling demand from God to kill?

You know the countryís policy when you illegally enter, so either take it or leave it. There is no reason to start a violent attack against your infidel neighbors who are your hosts.

    Or do you support illegal aliens going around killing people in your household and town just because they are persecuted and hunted down by ICE?

    You canít come to my house without permission or invitation and expect to cause mayhem if you donít get your way. It doesnít work that way.
    The Muslim immigrants in Burma arrived legally because the British government needed a work force, and got them from India. They did not enter the country illegally.

    British workforce from India were mostly Hindus and Gurkhas. Most of the muslims in Burma immigrate illegally from Bangladesh, which borders Burma at the northwestern region.

    Even if they were legally brought in by the British, why are they entitled to citizenship when they were only admitted into the country for work purpose?

    Not only that, they were admitted as a workforce by a colonial power that is no longer in control. Can’t the government of the country decide what their immigration policy should be without illegal aliens going around killing people and burning houses when they don’t get their way?

    At the least, if they want to voice their dissent, they could protest in front of the government buildings or appeal to the UN for help through peaceful means. If the government used violent force against their peaceful means of resolution, then I can understand the justification of their violence against the government. But, certainly not against innocent civilians.

    Muslims in Burma aren’t the only group of people being singled out for discrimination. The Chinese, Hindus and other minority also suffer the same discrimination the muslims suffered. Yet, they don’t go kill innocent civilians or burn their houses down.

    Overseas Chinese (mainly Hokkien and Cantonese speakers) form approximately three percent of the population, but are primarily unrecognized by the government (in terms of citizenship). Mon, who form two percent of the population, are ethno-linguistically related to the Khmer. Overseas Indians (mainly Tamil, Hindi, andBengali speakers) comprise two percent as well, and like the Chinese, do not have citizenship rights.

    Why is it that muslims and their supporters always think that they are special than other groups and are entitled to use violent bloodshed to resolve their problems?

    You opened up a can of worms.....

    On the Christian side, source religious documents, i.e. the Bible, condemn violence and so they are the authority base for ALL but a few churches/denominations condemning bombing. Only a few independent churches similar to Phelps' church would approve or support the activities. Furthermore, clinic bombers have a small circle of friends who would support and hide them, but they can not expect support from 99% of Christians.

    On the other hand, while there have been Muslim clerics who have denounced terrorist acts, they have all hedged their bets. Depending on who is being attacked, they say it is ok. That opinion is supported by, rather than refuted by their source documents, i.e. the Koran. A further difference is support among the populace. As long as Islamic terrorists limit their attacks to "infidels", they have almost universal support and aid among the Islamic community. Only when they start hitting other Muslims do they lose that community support.
