Re: The Truth About The Rohingya Lie

Greetings Kim, And, as I said in a different earlier post, extraordinary claims require extraordinary proofs. The opinions of one unreliable commentator do not have the weight to counter mainstream narratives unless they demonstrate superior knowledge and can quote supporting evidence. I'm waiting ....

Re: I disrobed and returned to "normal" life

Greetings, Imo, young monks should not call themselves Bhante nor should be called Bhante. Technically bhante is a term of second-person address akin to "sir", so should only be used when actually speaking to a bhikkhu, not about one. Thus, the name "Bhante [such-and-such]" doesn't really make much ...

Greetings, You are what you eat.

Re: POTUS 2017

Greetings, Bottom line: Flynn lied and got caught. I say "lock him up". If that's the impression that has been created, then patriot Michael Flynn's work as a spook is complete. :spy: Consider the following from @ThomasWictor . He has spoken about Flynn many times throughout the year. Metta, Paul. :)

Re: I disrobed and returned to "normal" life

Greetings binocular, Nevertheless, disrobing is a form of betrayal that can cause a crisis of faith for lay people who have relied on that monk to teach them the Dhamma Maybe if their refuge is a charismatic individual, rather than the Triple Gem. If people are so superficial, then I question what t...

Re: Contemporary threats to free speech

Greetings Mr Man, So the Dhamma Wheel team (I presume they are acting as a team) are now using the terms and conditions to close down open discussion. Moderation in accordance with the Terms of Service is what we do, and this has been explained to you repeatedly, and it has even been explained to yo...

Re: Muslims, Islam, U.S.A and Europe

Greetings, I won't presume to speak for Retro, but my understanding of what he meant was this. Current EU rules allow free movement of EU citizens between EU countries, so the EU in effect tells its member countries who they must accept as immigrants, regardless of their country of origin. Hungary a...

Re: Muslims, Islam, U.S.A and Europe

Greetings, Europe doesn't want muslims but they are lazy and they want the work done which muslims are willing to do and they want to import the brightest and best of muslim human resource. Moreover, that's what the EU tells its member states that they're getting... unless they fire up (e.g. Hungary...

Re: Muslims, Islam, U.S.A and Europe

Greetings Mr. Man, Indeed. It is certainly only "a" reason, not "the" reason. That said, it's certainly a multi-factorial situation with (to borrow some language from the commentaries) "proximate causes" and all sorts of other machinations going on behind and beyond what is immediately apparent.

Greetings, As confirmed by L.N.'s post above, this topic is inherently a violation of Rule 2 of the News section, which in part reads...

Re: What is up with all the fringe, alt-right commentary peppered throughout DW?

Greetings, From memory, I've not encountered a single member of this forum who identifies as "alt-right", especially not since the term evolved to become synonymous with right-wing identitarianism. Namely, it's a position which is a mirror image to the left-wing Cultural Marxist/SJW ideology of spli...

Re: Muslims, Islam, U.S.A and Europe

Greetings, It has been correctly identified above that the "upheaval in Syria and surrounding area" is a cause for the massive influx of Muslims into Europe... but that wouldn't have anything to do with external influences, would it? Someone wouldn't dare try to influence and engineer both the suppl...

Greetings, The Farage video seems totally off topic. Maybe you need to start a new topic for Soros intrigue. It's very much on topic, because it draws attention to how George Soros, through the use of his foundations etc. buys out corrupt politicians in both the U.S. and Europe, and pays them to do ...
