Muslim cleric in Australia: "Oh Allah, count the Buddhists and the Hindus one by one. Oh Allah, count them and kill them to the very last one." Hate speech and genocide Islam divides people into two antagonistic groups - Muslims
(collectively known as the Ummah) versus Kaffirs (aka Kufr, Kuffars,
Infidels or non-believers).
Kaffirs are subdivided further - Jews and Christians who accept the
supremacy of Islam are known as Dhimmis, and are allowed to live as
second-class citizens, provided they pay the extortionate Jizya (infidel
tax) to their Muslim masters. The state of being a submissive Dhimmi
is known as Dhimmitude.
Buddhists, Pagans and members of all other 'non-Abrahamic' religions,
together with secularists, and those Jews and Christians who do not
accept Muslim domination, are regarded as Harbis - targets of war.
Islam is at permanent war with Harbis, even if the Harbis don't actually
do anything to annoy Muslims. The Harbis' mere existence is itself an
act of war. A Harbi has no rights, not even the right to live.
Dar al-Harb and Dar al-Islam
Areas under Muslim control are known as Dar al-Islam. Areas under Harbi
control are known as Dar al-Harb - the domain of war. The Koran
commands Muslims to wage perpetual war (Jihad) against Dar al-Harb until
the entire world is Dar al-Islam. These attacks are ordained by
Allah and are non-negotiable in the long term, though the practice of taqiyya
(holy deception) allows temporary deceptive peace agreements (’hudna’)
to be made if the forces of Islam are too weak to attack the Harbis
successfully. (In fact Buddhists are desrcibed as
'Mushrik' - idolaters - a Muslim term of abuse which places mushrikun even
lower than 'najis kafirs'.)
Buddhists as Harbis
Buddhists have always been favorite targets because:
(1) The Koran (Surah 9, ayah 5) commands that polytheists and idolaters
should be murdered wherever they are found. Buddhist statues and icons
provided the perfect excuse for a bloodbath. Modern Muslims continue to
believe that since Buddhists are not monotheists they must be forced to
convert to Islam or be killed.
(2) Being pacifists, Buddhists were unable to defend themselves.
Islamic theology has a long history of uncompromising hostility towards Buddhism, and includes doctrines which have 'sanctified' the slaughter of Buddhist sangha and destroyed
Buddhist civilizations throughout Asia. More here,
