Burma: Mosque burned down by mob amid spike in religious violence

A mosque in north Burma has been burned down by an out-of-control mob – the second attack on a Muslim place of worship in the predominantly Buddhist nation in just over a week.

Attackers armed with sticks, knives and other weapons demolished the prayer hall in the town of Hpakant on Friday.

    Expect this to played up big, in fact over played, in the MSM of the West, while the same MSM ignore or only note in passing the attacks and killing by Muslims of Buddhists, Hindus, Christians, Jews and other non Muslims, along with destroying their houses of worship. So in all honesty I support the Buddhists in this case and reject any calls of Muslim victimhood.

      Yep, since the media hasn’t reported any of the ,uslim led violence that led to this retaliation. Joe public won’t get a chance to understand the background.

    Didn’t the muslims attack and kill a budhist monk last week? I noted the article failed to mention that incident.

    • Alain

      Funny you should mention that.

      It’s been going on for years, the Muslims attack, rape, kill and then pull a Pallwood and flood Youtube and sites with the resulting response.

    Is that a before or after picture?

    hmm.. I had been thinking of retiring to Thailand but Burma is starting to look pretty attractive.

    Good somebody is fighting back.

    • lolwut?

      It’s been going on for years now.
      However Muslims have been flooding Youtube with video claiming they are the victims so any search of it turns up endless results of Muslims crying about getting their asses kicked for the violence they started.

    You have to galactic level assholes to make Buddhists burn your place down.

  • They did not do it right. The walls are still standing.

    And the bad News is ??????

    There, that looks a lot better.

    I don’t see a problem here. The islamics were told not to build their mosque near the Buddhist shrine and the izzies did it anyway. The fewer mosques worldwide the better. Next time burn a pile of korans while you’re at it.
