Change of Egyptian Scenery

Those old idols of Sphinx & Great Pyramid must go, like the Afghan Buddhas: http://english.alarabiya.net/articles/2 ... 49092.html
One should refrain from biased judgments and doubting in fathoming the Buddha and the Dharma of the Buddhas. Even though a dharma may be extremely difficult to believe, one should nonetheless maintain faith in it. Nagarjuna

So what exactly do you hope to achieve by publicising the hateful comments of a fundamentalist lunatic?

Why do you question my motive? This is the News forum - this is news, so I passed on the story.

Maybe the Patience paramita will develop faster if folks will try to tolerate more 'hateful' things. Not that this applies to you Greg, of course.

I was not questioning your motive, I was asking what your motive is. Now that you have made it clear I will question it. :smile:

You (or any you) could post links to any number of fundamentalist lunatics from any political and social sphere. There is more than enough to out there to link to. Why would they want to do so? Why draw attention to the specific lunatic and not some other?

Like these Buddhist culture destroying lunatics, for example:
"When one is not in accord with the true view
Meditation and conduct become delusion,
One will not attain the real result
One will be like a blind man who has no eyes."
