| “We are going to kill you”: Myanmar non-Muslims recall jihad massacres by Rohingya Muslims
| Thursday, November 16, 2017
|Jihad Watch : The establishment media consistently only presents one side of the
story in Myanmar, claiming that Rohingya Muslims are being victimized on
a massive scale, despite evidence that many alleged army atrocities
have been faked, and that Myanmar non-Muslims have been brutalized and
murdered by Rohingya jihadists. Even in this story, the Washington Post
does its best to portray the Rohingyas as victims, but the evidence of
their jihadi bloodlust keeps coming through anyway.
“‘We are going to kill you’: Villagers in Burma recount violence by Rohingya Muslim militants,” by Annie Gowen, Washington Post, November 15, 2017:
SITTWE, Burma — The Hindu woman wept as she vowed never
to return home, where she said Rohingya militants slaughtered her son,
daughter-in-law and three granddaughters in August.
“They killed my family,” Halu Bar Hla, 70, said through tears at a
camp for internally displaced people in western Burma. “I will not go
back. I will die if I go back to my village. They will slit my throat.”
Hla’s account illustrates the complexity of the Rohingya crisis, in
which Buddhists and minorities such as Hindus claim that militant
Rohingya have carried out atrocities against them even as a brutal
military “clearance operation” has sent 600,000 Rohingya Muslims across
the border into Bangladesh.
The U.N. human rights chief has called the Burmese military’s
crackdown a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing,” and Burma’s
democratically elected government and Aung San Suu Kyi, its de facto
leader, have been widely condemned during the exodus. Interviews with monks, politicians and refugees in this port city
demonstrate how difficult it will be for Burmese and Bangladeshi
officials to come up with a plan for the Rohingya to return to Rakhine
state. Leaders from the Buddhist community and Suu Kyi’s government deny
that atrocities against Rohingya have taken place at all, saying that
the refugees fled in fear after Rohingya militants attacked police posts
in late August.
“The extremists incited villagers to go away saying the Burma army
would come and kill them. They killed Hindus and other ethnic
minorities. We could not find the death of any Muslim,” said Win Htein, a
top adviser to Suu Kyi. “There is no genocide or ethnic cleansing.”… At the same time the Rohingya fled, more than 30,000 Hindus,
Buddhists and ethnic minorities were also displaced, with some fleeing
south to Sittwe to take refuge in monasteries. In interviews, displaced
villagers said they were afraid to return home because they feared the
Rohingya insurgents whose attacks on police posts in their villages
precipitated the crisis.
In 2012, the rape of a Buddhist woman by Rohingya men triggered
widespread communal violence after which more than 100,000 Rohingya were
confined to detention camps. At the same time, a movement of hard-line
Buddhist nationalism gathered steam, led by radical monks.
