Does it seem as though the extremists are looking for anything that looks like a provocation to justify violence that they were already planning anyway?

Noted. I don't see any reason to burn 7 temples and 50 homes for something a boy posts on Facebook.

The hypocritical use of a religion as an excuse to attack others is appalling. These cretins are traitors to their own religious beliefs. It actually proves that they are disrespectful to their own God. The really sad and stupid thing is that the existence of God cannot be proved either way. So why not err on the side of simple love and compassion towards others?

Sadly it's just par for the course for these people.

These people are psychotics. They use the most mundane excuses to riot and kill. How can you even call it a religion? It's more like a cult of murders.

Reminds me of when the Taliban was destroying Buddhist statues with cannons a number of years ago. Shameful.

Roni, my sentiments too. Obviously, those barbarians are not worried about "Bhuddist Rage".

Islam....a "religion" which shelters OUTRAGE, violence, murder, torture, destruction and degradation.
