    This diary is about Muslim/Buddhist conflict in Southeast Asia and that is what I addressed.

    Your phobia of Buddhism is duly noted.

      when you said this:

      What is noteworthy is that the radical Buddhist movement in Myanmar rose shortly after the destruction of the giant Buddha statues in Bamyan, Afghanistan by the Taliban.

      I wonder what would have happened, if something equivalent would have been destroyed in the Islamic world, like, let's say, the Al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem?

      If you didn't mean to imply that Muslims would've been worse in this situation, then fine (though you should be more careful about saying things that can be taken in a Malkinesque manner). My point is that, in the end, we're all human.
