Muslims Now Rioting Over Facebook Photos

Posted by on Sep 30, 2012 at 8:53 am

Pretty much any excuse will suffice these days. YouTube videos, Facebook photos, a strange look, whatever it takes. Such a sensitive bunch, aren’t they?

Thousands of Bangladeshi Muslims angry over an alleged derogatory photo of the Islamic holy book Quran on Facebook set fires in at least 10 Buddhist temples and 40 homes near the southern border with Myanmar, authorities said Sunday.

The violence began late Saturday and continued until early Sunday, said Nojibul Islam, a police chief in the coastal district of Cox’s Bazar.

He said the situation was under control Sunday afternoon after extra security officials were deployed and the government banned public gatherings in the troubled area.

He said at least 20 people were injured in the attacks that followed the posting of a Facebook photo of a burned copy of the Quran. The rioters blamed the photo on a local Buddhist boy, though it was not immediately clear if the boy actually posted the photo.

Bangladesh’s popular English-language Daily Star newspaper quoted the boy as saying that the photo was mistakenly tagged on his Facebook profile. The newspaper reported that soon after the violence broke out, the boy’s Facebook account was closed and police escorted him and his mother to safety.

An accidental photo on Facebook? Yup, it’s time for mayhem.

    Is anyone out there like me, hoping that Matt Stone & Trey Parker are working on a movie mocking this craziness head on? They’re the only two people I can think of who could and would take these lunatics on directly and effectively.

    I never in my life thought I would say this but there’s an option to the problem in the Middle East. Several well placed nukes and we could turn the entire region into a large salad bowl. If it weren’t for Israel that is.

    I sick to fucking death of hearing about their sensitivity and feelings when they have no more concern for the feelings of others than I do for a turnip. These bastards can’t get along with anyone, including themselves and now the talk on several blogs and website is a planned world infitada from these lunatics.

    Sooner or later these madmen are gonna get what they want and the body count will be horrendous. So be it. If they can’t peacefully co-exist with the rest of the world then it’s time to get em all to those 72 virgins. They hold no value for life anyway. In fact they brag about wanting to die for Allah. Time to oblige them.
