Burma: Imam blessed jihadis before they struck police post

Robert Spencer:

The New York Times, like all the establishment media, takes the jihadis’ side, portraying the conflict in Myanmar as “Buddhist terrorists” raging out of control. And so here the Times quotes the imam Nazir Hossain: “As imam, I encouraged them never to step back from their mission. I told them that if they did not fight to the death, the military would come and kill their families, their women and their children.”

However, as the case also with Israel and the “Palestinians,” if the Rohingya Muslims didn’t attack the Buddhists and boast of imminent conquest, they would be left alone. The jihad imperative, once again, is what has created this conflict.

BALUKHALI, Bangladesh — Nazir Hossain, the imam of a village in far western Myanmar, gathered the faithful around him after evening prayers last month. In a few hours, more than a dozen Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army fighters from his village would strike a nearby police post with an assortment of handmade weapons.

The men needed their cleric’s blessing.

This is a very one sided, disgracefully typical BS report from al BeBeeCeera, who always sides with islamic terrorists.

The Myanmar government said that villagers set fire to their own homes – the BBC’s Reeta Chakrabarti tracked them down in Bangladesh and asked the refugees what happened.

Antonio Guterres, the UN secretary general, said the alleged attacks by security forces on Rohingya Muslims were completely unacceptable.

The UN is controlled by the OIC who is behind the Mohammedan expansion drive. No one should take his utterings seriously. Guterres is bought and paid for.

Committal Hearing of ‘Rohingya’ Muslim Who Set Fire to a Bank Waiting Room in Melbourne, Australia

29 people were injured and four seriously injured in the fire which caused about $3 million worth of damage in November last year.

Islam suffered burns to 60 per cent of his body and was in hospital for four and a half months.

He has pleaded not guilty to 108 charges including intentionally causing serious injury, conduct endangering life and criminal damage.

His name is “Nur Islam” – that is, “Light of Islam”.  The linked report includes footage of this so-called ‘Light of Islam’ pouring petrol in a bank waiting room – full of people – and igniting it.  Light of Islam, indeed. And let us all bear in mind that this man is one of those poor, poor ‘Rohingya’ …Read More…

“As imam, I encouraged them never to step back from their mission,” Mr. Hossain recalled of his final words to the ethnic Rohingya militants. “I told them that if they did not fight to the death, the military would come and kill their families, their women and their children.”

They fought — joining an Aug. 25 assault by thousands of the group’s fighters against Myanmar’s security forces — and the retaliation came down anyway. Since then, Myanmar’s troops and vigilante mobs have unleashed a scorched-earth operation on Rohingya populations in northern Rakhine State in Myanmar, sending hundreds of thousands fleeing their homes in a campaign that the United Nations has called ethnic cleansing.

From its start four years ago as a small-scale effort to organize a Rohingya resistance, ARSA — which is known locally as Harakah al-Yaqin, or the Faith Movement — has managed to stage two deadly attacks on Myanmar’s security forces: one last October and the other last month.

But in lashing out against the government, the militants have also made their own people a target. And they have handed Myanmar’s military an attempt at public justification by saying that it is fighting terrorism, even as it has burned down dozens of villages and killed fleeing women and children.

This radicalization of a new generation of Rohingya, a Muslim minority in a Buddhist-majority country, adds fuel to an already combustible situation in Rakhine, Myanmar’s poorest state….
