I never said they did. However, optics still matter. Often times truth or reality is ignored on the basis of optics. Is it just? As I said before, no. Is it likely to continue regardless? Most certainly.
The good Allah will defeat the evil Buddha. But Muslims must still perform Jihad as their holy scriptures mandate to correct this affront to Allah.

Anything else is just intellectual window dressing.
