This is actually what happened with regards the Buddhists. All that condemnation for Aum Sun Kyii (I can’t remember the exact spelling of her name, sorry) and yelling about the Rohingya? It started with the Rohingya tribes slaughtering their non-Muslim neighbors and taking over the villages. There was an incident reported in ReligionOfPeace’s website and, I think Jihadwatch, where the Rohingya set fire to a few of their houses with the intent that the fire spread to the Buddhist side of the village. The wind turned, and destroyed the Muslim side of the village. I can’t recall exactly if it was that incident, but the Rohingya then proceeded to claim that the Buddhists had tried to kill them all…

Of course none of these stories really make it out of the region, given the Western kowtowing to Islamic groups but pretty much, the Buddhists collectively had enough and now we have tribal genocide in the region.

Look, a blood libel in the morning, and a particularly nasty one since it`s targeted at a vulnerable and destroyed minority. May you fuck yourself with a dirty cactus.

Aung San Suu Kyi.

Intellectual laziness, you are posting on the internet, in the time it took you to write "I can’t remember the exact spelling of her name, sorry" you could have GOOGLE'd her with your spelling and gotten the correct spelling of her name. Such laziness makes one seriously question the validity of everything else you think and say.

Huh, I think the burning incident was brought up on another post.

To be fair, Aung San Suu Kyi is such a piece of shit that she doesn't deserve to have her name spelled correctly or pronounced correctly.

The Angry Dybbuk

The Government of Myanmar invited journalists from the BBC as well as from other foreign and local outlets to hear an alleged 'other side of the story' during a government-guided tour of a village called Gawdu Thar Ya. (Linked here on FSTDT)

Hindu neighbours accused a persecuted minority, the Rohingya Muslims, of torching their own homes in a passive attempt to destroy the property of their neighbours. (And this passive aggressive act was followed by men and women, supposedly Muslim, waving machetes for a photo op...because why the fuck not?)

Since that is incredibly hard totally fucking impossible to believe in itself, locals provided journalists with some ohhhh-so incriminating pictures:

We were given photographs catching [the Rohingya] in the act. They looked strange.

Men in white haji caps posed as they set light to the palm-thatch roof. Women wearing what appeared to be lacy tablecloths on their heads melodramatically waved swords and machetes. Later I found that one of the women was in fact the animated Hindu woman from the school, and I saw that one of the men had also been present in among the displaced Hindu.


If that fuckery weren't convincing enough that the Rohingya didn't do what their neighbours claim, the following should be:

As we walked in, we could see the roof of the madrassa has just been set alight. School texts with Arabic script had been thrown outside.


A madrassa would have contained a lot of Qur'anic literature. Maybe even copy-work by students. Considering most observant Muslims go so far as to wash their hands - wudu, I believe it's called - before opening a Qur'an, I don't believe for even a fraction of a second those villagers, with limited or no income to replace lost materials, would burn a madrassa. They'd not have burned copies of the Qur'an, nor left whatever survived strewn in a muddy street.

As for anything reported on the websites mentioned in this OP (such as JihadWatch), I take those claims with a truckload of salt.

ETA: So far as Aung San Suu Kyi is concerned, she may be in a political corner but that's not sufficient excuse for her silence. A splinter group of Rohingya, ARSA, did engage in violence against police, killing 12, but that doesn't reflect on the 270 000 Rohingya who were living in Myanmar before being driven out - or, if it does reflect on them, it may be for good reason that some had turned to militancy if the story of Gawdu Thar Ya turns out common. Being exiled to the Fourth World, and thereby left stateless, places 270 000 people in a position where they have no civil rights nor an international voice specifically defending their human rights. They're more vulnerable to genocide while in this condition than they would be in nearly any other.

You're on the Net; google her name, for crikey's sake!

You can't remember or recall anything, it seems. Why should we accept anything you say?

Western kowtowing is to HUMAN RIGHTS, to human beings, regardless of religion, skin-tone, gender or sexual orientation.

So, the Buddhists in Myanmar collectively said "fuck it; let's be reborn as sloths or something"?

I trust Swedish news more than I trust the Myanmar government. Swedish news is required to be objective and factual. Swedish news said the Rohingyas SUPPOSEDLY set their own houses on fire, but that this information turned out to be fake.

@ Swede:

I know Buddhist history isn't all light and sunshine. In this case, however, Hindu extremists were responsible.

Your mistake was a natural one, since the OP itself misidentified the firebugs as Buddhist.

Not gonna believe anything from a website called Jihadwatch.

@Dybbuk: Honestly? Given the persecution the Rohingya, I'd argue militance is justified.

And the rohingya children were murdwring people too, right? Because the children are also getting killed now.

There is never any justification for genocide.
