Such a distorted article. Rohingyas made up over 90 percent in that area. They tried to cleanse the area of non-Muslims to establish an autonomous Muslim region as they usually do wherever they settled. They tried to achieve this by terrorizing Arakanese with rape, murder, and robberies in the past year. It is working because Arakanese are running away from their hometown . They kept on terrorizing Arakanese but recently Arakanese tried to hold the gang of rapists accountable by punishing them on the bus. Rohingyas then launched the riot after their Friday prayer on June 8 .
Nowadays the media is being used to support aggressors, while truthful journalists are being silenced with threats.

Whose fault is it?
Why call them Arkanese, the name given the English coliniser?
The native people of Yakhine, that is the real name, are Burmese just like all other native brethrens of Burma. All except Rohingyas are Burmese/Myanmars.
It is the stupid fixation with Panglong that is the cause of all Burma's problems.
Burma was a unitary kingdom.
Evil Clement Attlee duped AungSan, half his, Attlee's age, and other Burmese unelected representatives into singing the Panglong Agreement for independence. Some Burmese are so stupid that they failed to understand two very impprtant points.
1. Panglong was the timebomb the vile Emglish coloniser left behind. It exploded even before Burma got independence, starting with the Kayin rebels. Instead of realising that Panglong was the vilest colonial legacy, stupid Burmese treat it like a gospel for independence.
2. Burmese indepenfence is a natural and fundamental right of all Burmese people, as His Royal Highness The Prince Shwebomin The Crown Prince of Burma insists. Therefore Panglong Agreement is not at all binding on Burma.
To think that Burma must obey the dictate of dead coloniser is tantamount to Slave Mentality.
So it is our disunity, our stupidity in accepting the colonial divide-and-conquer manipulation makes us weak in dealing with the Rohingya muslim colonisers in our beloved Yakhine.
Look at the size of Bangladesh and the size of BURMA. And look at the population of each country. It is not difficult to see why Bangladesh is practising Hitlerian policy of ' labensraum'.
It beggars belief that some Burmese, like Bathan Win wants Burma to be a federal republic.
That was what Attlee had in mind because the next logical step is disintegration of Burma and perpetual ethnic strife between natives of Burma to the benefit of new coloniser Rohingyas.
Is that clear?

This is no time to blame or get stuck in the past but to focus on the present and move forward. Muslims infiltrate various other countries too . For example , Sweden, Denmark, Britain, France , Germany, Russia. They will be fighting various infiltrated countries from within and establish Sharia as the law of the country once they are strong enough. At 5 or 10 percent they are already demanding control of cities in some countries. People from all corners of the world who value their freedom and democracy need to join hand and face the OIC . None of us would want to live under sharia like people do in some countries.

Blame we must all traitors. Don't be naive. The dark forces of former colonial power are at work.
You don't know. But we do.
The past is what shapes the present, even going back to the Roman empire and the Ottoman empire. And the Norman conquest. Obviously you like SuuKyi Aris had never properly trained in intellectual history.
Unless you trace back the historical causes you cannot go forward. To believe otherwise is as stupid as believing that Burmese Way To Socialism was the right medicine for Burms's ills.
Our people are sadly ignorant of how to analyse politics in historical context.
Buddhist laws were excellent. Even the coloniser English belatedly admitted, having destroyed them with monarchy, to impose their monarchy and laws upon our ancestors.
Get it right. Be humble intellectually.
Don't keep sucking up Panglong. Give credit where credit is due. Blame those who are blameworthy.
Do not be a traitor.
Western countries that have muslim, not Rohingya, problems have created their own problem. Their problems are very different in character. Get it?
They do have colonial legacies as we do.
Our problem is a direct result of colonialism.
Learn to think logically. Millions of Burmese had suffered because of the BSPP thugs led by ShuMaung.
The episode needs critical analysis. Tatmataw has changed under new leaders. Don't be possessed by your hatred of our Tatmataw. Despite the wrong doings, imposed upon the Tatmataw, we owe our sovereignty to our Tatmataw.
Now our sovereignty is being threatened by nascent democracy, irresponsible freedom and treason.
Rhohingya problem is being imflamed by the aforementioned.

Rohingyas and their fellow Muslims share common traits everywhere:
After reaching 5 or 10 percent they will gang up cleanse the area of non Muslims by terrorization (. Gang rape, murder , robberies). Many will simply move out of the area and surrender the land to Muslims, who will rule themselves and everyone in that city with Sharia. This is like living under Mafias.
Please leave ang San suu kyi and the rest alone if you don't like them. I enjoy democracy a great deal and would not want the sharia political system . Muslims should keep that in Muslim countries and not in other people's countries .
