Ah I see, you guys have the same we do over here. Political correct nonsense etc from a public broadcaster.

Canada's CBC is the same thing. For example, Omar Khadr was released from Gitmo and we had to take him back yesterday(he's still being held in Millhaven Penitentary in Ontario, little jihadist sh*thead). CBC website yesterday carried the story but after some hours they removed 1200+ comments because they are offensive to islam and/or offensive to the Khadr family.

I like TopGear, but millions spent on publicly funded broadcaster is a waste. CBC here gets $1.1 billion a year.

Our greatest PM will come one day, the one who does 2 things...bans islamic immigration and gets rid of the CBC. Just sayin'...lol

Barbarians are immune to logic. They understand just one thing, violence and retaliation.

If in response to a buddhist temple burning, ten mosques are burnt down, then they will think twice before burning another temple.

If they kill one critic of islam (claiming insult disrespect what ever), and in response non muslims kill a hundred muslims, then they will think ten times before touching any critic or cartoonist of islam / mohammad.

Islam is at war with all who are civilized and free. They use 'insult' only as an excuse to eliminate all non muslims. To hold them at bay, some war strategies are warranted. This is not violence. This is self defense. They are leaving us no other option.

Muslims will use any excuse to riot and murder and
often the reason is fabricated. The full story tells of thye boy Buddhist priest complaining of having his identity tagged-copied.
http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-09-30/rioters...

It stated:
"The man who sparked the riots, who has gone into hiding, told local media he did not post the picture, insisting someone else had "tagged" his account with the image on the social network."

Remember this story from Pakistan about fabricated evidence by a Muslim priest:

Buddhist temples attacked in Bangladesh shows intolerence of Bangladeshi muslims,few weeks ago they were crying over the killings of illigle Bangladeshi refuges in indian state of Assam. I met muslims from every place in India ,pakistan and Bangladesh and as i mix with Muslims from countries other than the subcontinent,the more I feel that the sub continent's Muslims are whacking big nut jobs!
I met a Turk the other day,and he has given up on Islam a long time ago when he came to understand that it was some arab baloney.
His sarcastic remark about Pakistanis was "more Catholic than the Pope!"
These people have no reverence for human or animal life,no refinement and grace in treatment of women,no respect for other cultures no worthwhile ideas as how to tackle the 21st century with fresh ideas..no nothing!
All Islam brought to the sub continent was pain and destruction and a colossal loss of life in unremitting conflicts!

Namo Buddhaya,

May all those affected Buddhists stay true to the calling of the Buddha : NEVER RETURN HATE FOR HATE, ONLY BY LOVE CAN HATRED BE RESOLVED.

Destruction can be rebuilt,albeit in a long time. Yet,when MAN gives way to the BEAST within,all MANKIND would perish.

Show the tormentors the meaning of METTA & KARUNA.No mosque should be torched in return.

It's good to read at least the Bangladeshi government is aiding the rebuilding of the temples. I hope everything would return to normal soon for the bangladeshi Buddhists.

It's also heartening to read a poem by one Bangladeshi facebooker, one Zakir Hussein, entitled 'I'm sorry Buddha'

May there be no more communal violence.

Even if everyone became a muslim, there would still be the sect v sect issues.
