Please do Not rush to judgement. There are violent people and agitators on both sides. One incident, does not a trend, make. It is apparent that the Rohingya are Not completely innocent victims. Before judging Aung san suu kyi, look at the history completely. I have not seen any thing recently, as completely polarized as this issue. It will be very difficult indeed, to find common ground. No one wants the Rohingya. No one.

This is going to get ugly, I suspect

Please do Not rush to judgement. There are violent people and agitators on both sides. One incident, does not a trend, make. It is apparent that the Rohingya are Not completely innocent victims.

This is toxic logic. Yes, there certainly have been violent people from both ethnic/religious groups, but to determine that an entire ethnic group is not innocent because some smaller number of members of that group committed violence is outright racism. It's 2017, and we should know better by now than to hold entire ethnic groups collectively guilty for the actions of a few in their midst.

Please don't confuse religious beliefs as a type of ethnicity. That is also toxic logic. Bigotry against religious views is not racism. Islam and Muslims (followers of Islam) are not an ethnicity. People can choose to change their religion, but can not choose their ethnicity. People keep trying to confuse the two and it causes more trouble in the end.

I do not surprise by Buddhist mob anguish against UN because the UN and UN Human Rights High Commission was so biased against Buddhist people in Rakhine State, Burma.

UN Chief and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein are blaming the entire conflict on Buddhist peoples and they did not even a single mention about terrorist Bengali Muslim villagers and the Islamic terrorist group the ARSA ruthless killing of innocent civilian Buddhists and Hindus as well as some Muslims. The UN and OHCHR have singled out Buddhists as fault and spreading misinformation.

The Buddhism and Buddhist peoples are tolerance society. How long they can tolerate when they were single out again and again blame for all conflicts with Muslims? The Muslims start the conflict, but in the end the Buddhists were at fault. Also the UN and media twist Muslim machete killers into innocent victims and no blink. This kind of manipulating by the media and UN is hurting Buddhist peoples’ feeling and trust.

Every tolerance degree has the limit. It will explode when the limit was over. The Buddhists can no longer ignore and tolerate to any aggression. The Sri Lankan Buddhists and Burmese Buddhist are now uniting and fighting against aggression and bully by UN and Muslims.

The UN and OHCHR must reform and be neutral. The Bengali Muslim self-identified as Rohingya was not Burmese ethnic. The UN and OHCHR was projecting Rohingya as ethnic and minority ethnic of Burma and to create Islamic state for Bengali Muslim in northern Rakhine.

UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein goal was giving international pressure on Burmese Government and to create independent Islamic State in northern Rakhine State, Burma.

What has Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein done since he was elected as High Commissioner for UN Human Rights?

He has done nothing except he went after Burmese Government and Daw Aung San Su Kyi.

What he doing was character assassinating against Daw Aung San Su Kyi and destroy Daw Aung San Su Kyi integrity and her image. He is a “Fox hiding in Rabbit suit”. He was using UN and OHCHR for the Islam religion's cause. Peoples need to aware of what Arab Muslims is using UN to convert the entire world population to Muslims.

Did you hear Zeid Hussein criticizing and accusing Saudi Government for committing war crime and human rights violating for bombing Yemen?

I didn’t hear any criticizing and accusing war crime against Saudi Government.

The Buddhists in Sri Lanka and Burma saw the truth and credibility of UN and OHCHR. That’s why they are opposing UN and its agency coming and operating in their country.
