After the fall of the myth "Islam is a religion of peace" or "Christian is a religion of love" or ... now we watch the fall of "Buddhism is peaceful".
alarabiya called an Imam in Burma who said: "We need everything, no shelter no food no safety. Some girls committed suicide after they got turned away by the Bangladesh Government. They were driven by fear of torture and rape if they returned to Burma."

THERE IS NO RELIGION OF PEACE.
I agree with Michel.
..but reincarnation, they feel by killing those on the wrong path their souls get recycled.
Now that's terrible!
in deed, if a militant thinks that if he kills you, you come back as another person, it kind of divorces him from the reality of his actions.
Not to mention that the militant is very wrong about what happens to me when I'm dead.
it's not such a hateful act if I think you will be reborn in 9 months, yeah.
I thought Buddhists were forbidden to kill by the tenets of their philosophy. But of course "ethnic" and cultural strife and wars and violence are always more important than any tenets, even those of rationality, or science. As a species, we are lamentably tribal. If one wants to see the rosy side of it, one could believe Steve Pinker and "The Better Angels of our Nature"; I confess I did not finish his book, it had good parts but seemed like pretty egregious cherry-picking to me.
