Good point - and I, for one, will stay on topic if everyone else does. Fair?

Completely fair. :anjali:

That's for Buddhists to decide. But this thread isn't about that.

You're just "Looking for more info on Muslim violence against Buddhists" ...

What one thinks about karma and rebirth certainly addresses what one thinks is going on in any given situation (not just the present situation between Buddhists and Muslims) and shapes how one will approach thinking and acting about it (including how and why one collects info on something).

That's right, mainly because it's being under reported. I feel it's important we know what's happening with the Sangha and our Dharma friends around the world. If you want to debate or natter about the political and philosophical implications of these events, you should start a new thread.
