Hmmm..do you know the dark ages in europe (and why they're calledlike this)Islam is built on war and hate. Islam is built on rage and violence. It is not a religion. It is more like a cult. Alof of people are converting to christianity more than the numbers of the converts to islam. Some say that they will outnumber christianity in 2100 which I doubt. The fertility rate has dropped especially in majority muslim countries and it will continue to drop.
Do you see what the chinese are doing to the uighur Muslims ?
Do you know what the budhists have done in india to m
and this is an article about Budhists (the ones considered as the most peaceful)
Why are Buddhist monks attacking Muslims?
and this extract explains it
But aren't Buddhist monks meant to be the good guys of religion?
Aggressive thoughts are inimical to all Buddhist teachings. Buddhism even comes equipped with a practical way to eliminate them. Through meditation the distinction between your feelings and those of others should begin to dissolve, while your compassion for all living things grows.
Of course, there is a strong strain of pacifism in Christian teachings too: "Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you," were the words of Jesus in the Sermon on the Mount.
But however any religion starts out, sooner or later it enters into a Faustian pact with state power. Buddhist monks looked to kings, the ultimate wielders of violence, for the support, patronage and order that only they could provide. Kings looked to monks to provide the popular legitimacy that only such a high moral vision can confer.
The result can seem ironic. If you have a strong sense of the overriding moral superiority of your worldview, then the need to protect and advance it can seem the most important duty of all.
Christian crusaders, Islamist militants, or the leaders of "freedom-loving nations", all justify what they see as necessary violence in the name of a higher good. Buddhist rulers and monks have been no exception.
