The people who justify Muslim violence against the Weat won't be posting on this thread. They need the vacuum.

Fanatacism breeds hate, hate breeds death.

it's always muslims vs the rest (christians, buddhists, hindus, jews). the religion of peace just can't seem to get along with the rest of humanity.

Possibly, it might ignites further severe violence in Myanmar...There would be no end, until all were died.

The media and international bodies have portrayed the Rohingya Muslims as the true and only victims in this conflict. True, they've been a brutalized minority. But according to the local people in Myanmar, that came as a reaction to very serious abuses the Rohingya committed in the first place, such as gang rapes and land usurpation.

Incidents like this lend credence to that argument. The Rohingya need to go or be settled with other Muslims, like Indonesia. Wherever you've got minority Muslims in SE Asia, you've got violence and misery, like southern Thailand and the Philippines.

Suu Kyi and others realize this, and that's why they aren't so sympathetic.

Some "religion of peace" those thugs who killed three dozen Muslims in Burma followed. Ethnic and religious violence is always wrong; not just when Muslims do it.

And again the fallacy of assuming that every conflict that involves Muslims, from Mindanao to Bosnia to Chechnya, must be initiated by Muslims. And that every other religion doesn't have its vicious persecution against others.

That's called ethnic cleansing, and it tends to be frowned on by civilised people. The Rohingya are Burmese, native to the land and with as much right to be there as anyone. Just like the Moro in the Philippines or the Bosniaks in the Balkans.

And stop pretending that this is anything other than tribal warfare. Buddhists in Burma gang-rape Buddhist women regularly. Their citing of instances of crimes by Muslim perpetrators is out of no concern for the victims - it is merely another instance of chauvinistic tribal men laying claim to ownership of "their women" and using them as a symbol of their "honour".
