  1. someone says:

    To understand Aung San Suu Kyi it might be instructive to read jihadwatch. Two articles I can especially recommend:
    Quote from above: “[…]the Arakanese Massacres of 1942, when 50,000 Buddhists were killed by the Rohingyas in Rakhine (Arakan) state.”
    “Eight-year-old Muni is one of the sole survivors in her Hindu family, after eight of her relatives were reportedly killed by Muslim militants one week ago in Kha Mauk Seik village, some 40 miles from downtown Maungdaw, in northern Rakhine State.”

    • Really, you want to justify current atrocities by citing those of the past? “What goes around, comes around”? Let’s see if you feel the same when America’s past victims come looking for some “karma”.

      • Someone says:

        You’re not reading. The second link talks about something which happened in the last year. And there is so much more. The Rohingya attacks are aided by Pakistani jihadi groups. Obviously the Burmese have the right to themselves against foreign incursion.
