What Do the Myanmar Buddhists and the English Defence League Have in Common?

The vile cult of Islam has the uncanny ability to create similar reactions in many different countries and societies. Actually there is nothing strange about that – the Muslim jihadist aggression, which attempts to transform any place where the Muslims reach certain percentage of the population, naturally causes a self-defense reaction. When they are trying to survive, the human beings usually act in similar ways.

That would explain the news that a Buddhist organization in Myanmar, working on ways  to save the country from Islam, found so much in common with the English Defence League (EDL). Both countries have very little common ground. Myanmar is a Buddhist country, ruled by a government, which still fits the definition of a military dictatorship better than anything else. England is a predominantly Christian country ruled by a democratic government.

Yet both governments are very inefficient in stopping the invasion of the Muslim barbarism. In both countries militant Muslims have been committing terrorist acts, murders, rapes, and other atrocities for years. And despite that, the rulers of those countries haven’t done  much to help the people – Islam is not only tolerated, but receives generous subsidies at taxpayers’ expense.

That’s why we see two seemingly incompatible movements like Myanmar’s 969 Buddhists and EDL. The soft-spoken Buddhists and the loud Englishmen are united by a common goal – they want to help people resist the Muslim invasion in a peaceful way.

Wirathu, the soft-spoken but sharp-tongued face of Myanmar’s 969 movement, has told the Times of London that his organization aims to imitate the English Defence League or EDL, a movement that recently made headlines by launching angry street protests after two hardline Muslim men hacked a British soldier to death in a London street.

“People give me various names: the Burmese bin Laden, the bald neo-Nazi… we would like to be like the EDL. Not carrying out violence but protecting the public,” the well-known Buddhist monk told reporter Richard Lloyd Parry.

There is much overlap between the two movements’ world views. Both regard Islam as a force threatening to undermine the mainstream way of life in their respective nations. Both are accused of stoking violence, though each presents itself as merely calling attention to Islam’s alleged dangers.
