Fresh Riots in Myanmar

An update from Pamela Geller:

Be wary of the enemedia narrative in Burma. They are aligned with the jihad force.  The sharia-compliant media always takes the side of the invading force. Bosnia, Syria, Gaza, Egypt, Turkey, the Philippines …..

Burmese Jihadi Group Urges Muslims To Join Their Fight Against Government, Buddhist Inhabitants MEMRI

On August 19, 2013, a Burmese jihadi group released a YouTube video in which it urged the mujahedeen worldwide to join them in their fight against the government and the Buddhist inhabitants.

Dozens of homes set ablaze in rioting in central village of Kanbalu following attempted rape of woman.

Twelve arrested after fresh unrest in Myanmar

The Ministry of Information said the sectarian unrest in a central village of Kanbalu followed the attempted rape of a Buddhist woman by a Muslim man on Saturday evening.At least 12 people have been arrested after a renewed bout of religious violence in Myanmar’s northern Sagaing region in which dozens of homes were set ablaze.

According to the statement, after the man was detained, about 150 villagers and three Buddhist monks gathered at the police station, demanding he be handed over to them.

When the police refused, the mob rioted, destroying Muslim bulildings, throwing rocks at police and attacking firemen.

As usual, the Buddhists are to blame because they have the audacity to defend themselves.

About 1,000 Buddhists, some carrying sticks and swords, attacked Muslim villagers the same night, destroying more than 40 homes and shops, witnesses said.

Calm was restored on Sunday. Witnesses said some Muslims fled to neighbouring villages or sheltered in a Muslim school.

A Muslim eyewitness said the cause of the unrest appeared to have been an argument between a young Muslim man and a Buddhist woman, but he denied the man attempted to rape the woman.

Myanmar has been grappling with sectarian violence since the country’s military rulers handed over power to a nominally civilian government in 2011.

The unrest began last year in the western state of Rakhine, where Buddhists accuse the Rohingya Muslim community of illegally entering the country and encroaching on their land.

Last week watchdog Physicians for Human Rights said Myanmar risked “catastrophic” levels of conflict with “potential crimes against humanity and/or genocide” if authorities failed to stem anti-Muslim hate speech and a culture of impunity around the clashes.

Rights groups have accused authorities of being unable or unwilling to contain the unrest, which has left about 250 people dead and more than 140,000 homeless. The vast majority of victims have been Muslim, who make up at least four percent of the population. Myanmar has rejected the claims.

  1. Buddhists worldwide and the Myanmar government should not commit the mistakes that Hindus and India has done. Do not treat muslims like any other human beings. Majority of them are insane because their religion and religious teachers teach them to hate and exterminate non-muslims or forcibly convert them. That is the reason why muslims are continuously behaving like mad fanatics for the last 1400 years. Beware and hit them hard and put the fear of death in them. They understand only one language which is punishment of ten times severity for every crime they commit.

  2. Last week LAPdog Physicians for Human Rights said Myanmar risked “catastrophic” levels of conflict with “potential crimes against humanity and/or genocide” if authorities failed to stem anti-Muslim hate speech and a culture of impunity around the clashes.

    Anti-muslim hatespeech = anti crime hate speech; perfectly reasonable.

    Counter-attacking “Crimes” against muslims aren’t crimes against humans, because muslim tenets say all non-muslims are inhuman animals which it is not only their right, but also their holy duty, to kill.

    And, since islam is an equal opportunity crime-gang, it isn’t genocide.

  3. So far I have not seen one fair or balanced report on the situation in Burma. We are to believe that the invented “Rohingya” (muslim invaders from Bangladesh) who are illegally in Burma somehow have “rights” to remain there. These claims are backed by tons of money from the OIC, the UN and the Saudis, of course.

    The influence of Arab money in news media has become intolerable.
