Islam Awareness for Buddhists
|Islam will Dominate! Although the principal targets of the current wave of terrorism are primarily Jews and Christians, Buddhists are also victims of jihad, and historically have suffered far worse casualities than any other faith...|
|Islam's War Against Buddhism We Buddhists must realize that we, and our cherished practices, would be swept away entirely and crushed utterly, should Islam ever gain ascendancy in this world in which we live. Islam is the only belief that propagates itself thus by the sword...|
|The Buddha Meets Holger Danske Almost all the harm inflicted upon Buddhism throughout history has been caused by Islam, says Ole Nydahl. He finds it embarrassing that Buddhists never defended themselves. Muslim extremists now threaten Buddhists with renewed violence.|
against Buddhism No fanfare and little notice marked the 10th
anniversary earlier this year of the destruction of the 1,500-year-old Bamiyan Buddhas.
These 6th-century stately statues carved into sandstone cliffs in central
