And ToP goes strangely silent

Now that the Sri Lankin govt has identified that "islamist terrorists" are "most likely" responsible for the horrific Easter bombings, all of the ToP posts with their hundreds of comments pointing out that Muslims only account for 10% of the population and Christians even less so, so it must be the Budhists! have gone silent. No Reckt list. No Current. No Community Spotlight. Go figure.

They are so wrong again, and when they are they slink back to their hidey holes where one is safe in the bubble and womb that is opinion on ToP.

Sri Lanka Points to Islamist Militants in Easter Bombing Attacks

COLOMBO, Sri Lanka—The Sri Lanka government voiced suspicions that an obscure radical Islamist group organized the devastating series of Easter Sunday attacks on churches and tourist hotels that killed 290 people.

Government officials said some of the suicide bombers and others arrested were linked to a group known as National Thowheeth Jamath, which they had identified earlier this month as the unnamed group Indian and U.S. security services had earlier warned was planning attacks in Sri Lanka.

The sophistication of the Easter-morning attacks indicated to Sri Lankan and international terror experts that whoever carried them likely had help from experienced international terrorists, perhaps even al Qaeda or Islamic State, Sri Lankan officials said.

I'm telling you when it comes to International Terrorism, and you are hearing it from me, if it's not the Buddhists, it's the gd Norwegians (they're Vikings you know)...

I almost never look over there anymore.
I'm not sure why they felt that way, other than for IdPol reasons.

@gjohnsit ...it's expected that anyone 'writing' there toe the capitalist/imperialist/interventionist line. Funnily enough, there are some Buddhists extremists in places like Myanmar, for instance, but since Suu Kyi is pro 'Murica, nobody cares what Buddhists do to Muslims there.

Modern education is little more than toeing the line for the capitalist pigs.

Guerrilla Liberalism won't liberate the US or the world from the iron fist of capital.

That I can't trust my lying eyes.

The only reason the Sri Lankins believe that is that they must be Islamophobic.

I mean, clearly the fact the media ignores them should be proof that there is nothing to fear!

/snark

I'm sorry, I should probably give the proper TOP praise to balance my horrible and awful statements which clearly only come from nothing but undiagnosed psychological problems which they will be happy to invent for me....

I do not pretend I know what I do not know.

the Sri Lankan govt. imposed a curfew and shut down social media in order, one supposes, to prevent the perps communicating with their backup or disappearing. And then, arrests the same day, over 20 by now.

(sigh) I wonder what it must be like to have a govt. that, you know, governs. Does what needs to be done expeditiously without fuss or grandstanding photo ops.
