    We need to be concerned about the swords and other warlike material found in many mosques, including at Rajagiriya. These weapons appear to have been kept in readiness and in anticipation of a reaction to the slaughter which was planned for Easter Sunday. Swords don't attack by themselves, so at least a few dozen worshippers in each location would have been readied to attack with these weapons. This may have occurred with or without any provocation also. These people live amongst us, and they planned and readied to kill us. Where do we go from here? One thing is certain, there is no going back to trusting the Muslims again,

    One must read the quran the hadiths and the sunnas. it will be evident what the final objective is to have Islam as the global doctrine. the strategies may be dynamic depending on the stage adopted in Islam. in Buddhism human mind has been given superiority for righteousness over some violence related Gods. Regrettably since politicians want short term survival they do not care of the long term catastrophic consequences and will tend to support extremist ideologies irrespective of the existence of peaceful religions such as Buddhism etc. The world has to get together and ban stanzas of any faith that does not propagate great human values and ethics. this is a political decision. if not addressed the world will be back in the ages of the beasts. the choice needs to be made without any delays.
