This is a new bit I have been thinking on how to describe for a couple of days now. I find it to be perhaps one of the best examples of what has gone so very wrong in the Western world at some point since the 1960s.
After years of murder, torture, rape and horror by Muslims to the Buddhists in the ‘restive’ areas of Thailand (Video not available since youtube closed my channel, will try and replace it) Buddhists are doing something they learned the very hard way. “The way of peace cannot work against those who have closed hearts” (paraphrasing the Dalai Lama on Islam) These Buddhists have formed militias in cooperation with local police and are attempting to protect themselves, their culture, history, religion, women, nation and ancestral homes against an invading Islam. The reporter who covers this story manages to explain these facts yet somehow still make both sides equally in the moral wrong. It staggers the imagination. He manages to find someone to quote who accuses the defenders of exacerbating the situation by defending themselves.
Much like General Petreaus when he spoke of Pastor Jones, I suppose they feel it would make it much safer for all of us if we just surrendered and converted to Islam instead of actually defend our own moral and legal codes.
Here is the video from the AP:
