  1. The war is intensifying. Now we can see what kind of coverage it gets in the mainstream media.

    Will Hollywood (Richard Gere and others) speak out? they spoke out against the Beijing in Tibet.
    You would think they would speak about the persecution of Buddhists in Burma, India & Sri Lanka. But not so much. Beijing never ordered hit squads to assassinate them, but Muslims will.

    This whole Islamic war against Buddhists and Hindus puts everything into context. It would put a stake thru the heart of the lie form the left that this Islamic terror is all caused by the Crusades or original sin of the West or Christianity or whatever they can throw against the wall.
