"Indonesian police have been put on alert at the Borobudur Temple after a threat against the world’s biggest Buddhist temple and UNESCO World heritage Site was made on Facebook by Islamic State supporters."
"This world completely lacks essence;
It trembles in all directions.
I longed to find myself a place
Unscathed — but I could not see it."

It's unsettling how the Islamic State's (IS) message seems to be radicalizing some Muslims internationally, instead of just within their local sphere of influence in the Middle East. The documentary I linked to in another thread features a jihadist who came from Belgium with his young son to fight for the IS. Some others were from North Africa. And the recent video showing the execution of the American journalist had an executioner with a British accent.

While there are many dangers in the world, the threat from Iraq stands alone

You have been engaged in what may well be the final Armageddon foretold in the Bible-that struggle between good and evil, between life and death

"He, the Blessed One, is indeed the Noble Lord, the Perfectly Enlightened One;
He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Serene One, the Knower of the Worlds;
He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and men; he is Awake and Holy. "

--------------------------------------------
"The Dhamma is well-expounded by the Blessed One,
Apparent here and now, timeless, encouraging investigation,
Leading to liberation, to be experienced individually by the wise. "
