Hey what you think over the threat to the Dalai Lama mentioned here at jihadawatch

Hi dizzy! Glad to hear from you again. As to the threat to the Dalai Lama, I don't have enough reliable information to have an opinion. However I tend to be very skeptical of any news that very conveniently incriminate a whole group that happens to be on the US' enemy list (US and their allies, I must say). Why would any Muslim group want to kill somebody as innocuous as the Dalai Lama, who by the way has been receiving death threats since he arrived in India.

Good to be back, making an appearance on your good natured blog. I think the bad aspects of any religion, is nothing to do with the spiritual message but rather with a political hyjacking of the beliefs.
I mean we can look at atrocities carried out by many religious groups, but in truth it is usually the Kings, Queens or ruling elites of Nations that are using a spiritually peacefull belief as an excuse for imperialistic expansion.
Thats what we are witnesseing today I feel.
I believe Pakistan, Afghanistan, Bangladesh and many other Moslem countries used to be full of Buddhists at one time, does make you wonder what became of them!
