    Compare with the Gaza situation. News reported that one house in Gaza was torched. Why only one? Because Jews build. Jews don't destroy out of spite.

    In the USofA we have sub culture that is similar to the Muslim culture that destroys out of spite - even their own property. Some of them also claim to be a Muslim sect.

    What was that all about? is everyone building bombs these days? I have said this before the
    terrorists are still in training in other countries ..I wonder if we are really conducting
    the war on terror.

    I don't wonder, I know we're not. The rhetoric about the "war on terror" is whipped up into a frenzy, but the actions and inactions (i.e. border security) prove otherwise.

    Here's an example:

    I am sorry to hear of this also, I wonder though that if this attack was done by muslims on other muslims, what their reaction will be? In other cases, it has resulted in conversions to Christ, as per Sudan.

    Hinduism seems more likely as that is more a part of the Bengali culture (although there is a Christian community there as well thanks to the Portuguese missionaries).

    It's hardly the first time that Bangladeshis have suffered from their "fellow" Muslims - Pakistan tried to starve & bomb them into submission back in '71. That's one of the reasons Mr. Daisy scoffs so cynically that the "Moslems don't kill Moslems" rhetoric.

    I hope this turns the young guys there against extremism.

    The official religion is Islam with approximately 83% of the population Sunni Muslims. This makes Bangladesh the second largest Islamic state in the world after Indonesia. The Muslim society is divided into three distinct classes, (1.) the Ashraf (better), (2.) the Ajlaf (lower) and the (3.) Arzal (lowest). Hindus account for 12% of the population and less than 1% are Buddhist, Christian or other.

    Islamofascists aren't picky. They love to kill. Other Muslims will do just fine fine if no one else is available.

    They always want something and their way of getting it is always murder.

    Or if no one else is convenient at the moment.

    The something is power, but the way isn't always murder - they also use intimidation, propaganda, nationalism, gang violence, and the other tools of oppression. The causes of extremists vary but the the methods and results are similar.
