Even Buddhists can persecute and be intolerant.

Religion poisons everything, even Buddhism which can be interpreted for ill as well as any orthodoxy, any dogma, as even Bill O'Reilly has pointed out about nihilism and atheism, although nihilism can be argued to be a belief system as much as a formal religion. Buddhist monks in Myanmar have spawned ultra-nationalistic supporters of anti-Islam sentiment, even participating in protests and calls for violence against Muslims.  It saddens me to see Buddhists getting so upset about tempo-material things. 

On the other hand, it can be argued that only the most severe conditions would make normally-peaceful, esoteric Buddhists drop the separation and advocate against another group. One can't argue that Islam is not without danger and harm for non-Muslims. Perhaps this should be a wake-up call for those that are sympathetic or too liberal to see the truth.
