Re: Israel - United Arab Emirates landmark accord

The Israel-Palestine conflict is a bilateral issue and as Buddhists it is best to maintain silence on the matter. Because if our actions cause Israel to become non-existent then the Buddhists living in these territories will lose their rights, Buddhists groups will be abolished and there will be re...

Cause & effect. One group not practising enough dharma to stop the outrage of the other group. It generally takes two to tango.

Buddhism teaches about five precepts. One group came to possess the homes & land of the other group. 1.5 million of the other group remain homeless. This is the primary issue.

Re: Iran & Shia Islam

Hezbollah. if Hezbollah was violent, why would this Christian beauty & star sing in praise of them? Buddhists think before they speak. Nasrallah, while not a Buddhist, can be quite amazing. https://youtu.be/5tFhDc5SO3c https://youtu.be/ikWIrEA-yss https://youtu.be/ZtbI4YEH6dA https://youtu.be/9TqhB...

Re: Iran & Shia Islam

Hezbollah. Again, you are misinformed. The Israel military illegally occupied southern Lebanon, where the Shia live, for 18 years. Hezbollah was formed to kick the Israelis out; which they did. Hezbollah also freed the most historic Christian towns in Syria from ISIS. This town: https://youtu.be/uD...

Re: Israel - United Arab Emirates landmark accord

In my mind real peace would also have to include Lebanon and Syria. And that probably doesn't end the list of states. It seems like you don't really understand the key issues. Buddhism does not support dispossessing people their homes & lands. Also, Lebanon has never made war against Israel, apart ...

Re: Israel - United Arab Emirates landmark accord

Now if there could only be a real peace agreement between Israel & Palestine, then there might be real peace in the Middle East. Sounds like the key issue has been overlooked or forgotten, namely, around 1.5 million Palestinians still in refugee camps. Since the UAE & Israel have never been at war,...

The left serves the establishment

I have come to the absolute ;) conviction the political left serves the right wing establishment. The left, on their grounds of humanitarian intervention, has supported neo-con imperialist wars that have destroyed lives & entire nations (such as Libya). Now with the Corona-Virus, the left serves the...

Re: Social justice without morality ???

There is a recent PragerU video discussing this. Thanks for that although it appeared superficial in its rationale. For me, it was too smug & unbalanced to impart the spirit of Bible. My impression is the Bible evolves from Moses, to the later Prophets concerned with social justice, then to Christi...
