It wasn't an American-made video on YouTube, but it would do.
A picture of a burned Quran allegedly posted to a boy's Facebook page in Bangladesh is being used as the terrorism excuse du jour to explain the burning of at least 10 Buddhist temples and 40 homes near the border with Myanmar this past weekend. At least 20 people were injured, according to police officials quoted in Russia Today.
Bangladesh's Daily Star newspaper said the rioters blamed a picture of a burned Quran on a local Buddhist boy, but the boy said the photo was mistakenly tagged on his Facebook page. The boy and his family were taken into protective police custody.
The riots that began late Saturday were curtailed by Sunday afternoon after authorities called in the military and other security units to put down any further rioting by the Muslims who are a majority in the country.
Does any of this sound familiar? An alleged "mob" of Muslims suddenly becomes enraged out of the blue by something online and uses it to justify mayhem, destruction and slaughter. It's just a replay of the Mideast rioting that began on 9-11, this time targeting another class of "infidel."
Unlike U.S. officials, however, Bangladeshi government seems to be admitting right upfront that this is terrorism.
Home Minister Mohiuddin Khan Alamgir told reporters that the attacks were preplanned and the terrorists used gasoline and gunpowder to destroy homes and temples, some of which were 300 or more years old.
Based on what we've seen from the Muslims, both in the streets and in the United Nations, the "plan" is to cow the world into submission by making everyone too afraid of Muslim "spontaneous" violence to ever risk doing anything to offend.
When President Obama spoke at the United Nations, the sycophant media tried to paint it as a defense of free speech, but listen closely to what Obama said. It's basically a surrender by way of agreeing that there must be limits on speech -- "the future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."
It's no coincidence that Muslim leaders at the U.N. have called for an international law against blaspheming Islam.
In short, it's a plot to use terror to convince us to surrender our own rights, and our president is playing along.
