* I guess Thailand needs some more “missionary bandits” in the deep south, these ‘refugees’ would fit right in…
GENEVA (Reuters) â€“Â U.S. actress Angelina Jolie, aÂ goodwill ambassadorÂ for the United Nations refugee agency, urged Thailand Thursday to welcome Muslim refugees fleeing Myanmar.
Must be something they put in the water in Hollyweird:
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â it affects even goldfish:
..living under Republican rule almost “killed” her, and she does not understand why anyone would want to be a Republican.Â She also said that President Barack Obama’s “intelligence” and “spirit”Â are “so great” he will be able to do “more than anyone could possibly do.”
Thailand‘s treatment of theÂ Rohingyas, an oppressed Muslim minority from mainly Buddhist Myanmar, has been widely condemned as evidence emerges that hundreds were rounded up by the Thai military and towed out to sea.
Jolie issued the plea during a visit to camps inÂ northern ThailandÂ which house 111,000 mostly Christian ethnic Karen refugees fromÂ Myanmar.
“Visiting Ban Mai Nai Soi and seeing how hospitable Thailand has been to 111,000 mostly Karen and Karenni refugees over the years, makes me hope that Thailand will be just as generous to the Rohingya refugees who are now arriving on their shores,” Jolie said in a statement issued by the U.N.Â High Commissionerfor Refugees (UNHCR).
Since becoming goodwill ambassador for the Geneva-based agency in 2001, Jolie has visited refugees in more than 20 hotspots including Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Sudan.
Two RohingyaÂ boat peopleÂ found offÂ IndonesiaÂ this week said they were rounded up and beaten by the Thai army before being cast adrift in rickety, engineless boats.
Thailand’s military has admitted towing hundreds out to sea and cutting them adrift, but insisted they had adequate food and water and denied reports the boats’ engines were sabotaged.
