Are these Buddhist Terrorists
*It's impossible to be a Religious Terrorist
You're either one or the other

Sigh. RIP

Anger is one letter short of Danger

From the article posted: No one has claimed responsibility for the attacks

Christians killed during easter in a majority Buddhist country is horrible but this is terrorism, not about Buddhism. So I agree, you're either a terrorist or a buddhist/religious/Christian/Muslim, can't be both

One thing is sure: atheists are not responsible.

The billionaire fashion tycoon behind online clothing retailer Asos lost three of his four children in the Sri Lanka terror attacks, a spokesman has said.


Wow. Not the news I'd know how to handle if I were him or their Mother
My condolences

It was confirmed that it was Islamist militants who took responsibility for the bombing

CI, sounds like you may have been right.

Someone, somewhere, did something in retaliation for that vicious, hate-filled racist attack by the white supremacist in Christchurch, New Zealand.

50 Muslims are killed in the mostly secular nation of New Zealand.....and for revenge 320+ (mostly Christians) are killed 7K miles away in the Buddhist nation of Sri Lanka? I guess, but the math appears convoluted at best. What does Sri Lanka have to do with New Zealand?

One of the things I have thought about when a suicide bomber kills him or herself is

How difficult would it be to find some people and intentionally radicalize them to do your bidding? Whatever your bidding is..

We saw Khabib the UFC fighter who jumped the cage due to mainly religious insults

For example
https://www.nytimes.com/2019/04/22/us/militia-border-new-mexico.html
Militia in New Mexico Planned to Kill Obama and Clinton, F.B.I. Was Told
Quote:
Mr. Hopkins finally came under the scrutiny of federal authorities in 2017, after the F.B.I. received reports that his group was “training” to assassinate Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton and George Soros, according to documents unsealed Monday in federal court.

All terrorists purport to be avenging something, but it's always some contrived bull (bleep) excuse to murder people.

Sri Lanka claimed by Isis
