Human Rights Watch says the Burmese government’s discriminatory policies are creating a humanitarian crisis that will ultimately result in long-term segregation and statelessness for the Rohingya and Kaman Muslim minorities. The respected New York-based NGO says “an ethnic Arakanese campaign of violence and abuses since June 2012 facilitated by and at times involving state security forces and government officials has displaced more than 125,000 Rohingya and Kaman Muslims in western Burma’s Arakan State. During another orgy of ethnic violence in the central Burma town of Meikhtila on March 20 to 22, “mobs and Buddhist monks” attacked Muslim residents and burned down mosques and homes, and killed an unknown number of people.
Human Rights Watch says the government of Burma is causing the humanitarian crisis by: denying Rohingya citizenship; restricting the delivery of international aid to the internally displaced who are living in squalid refuges camps; failure to institute an action plan to resolve the crisis, and refusal to allow displaced Rohingya to return to their homes.
It is vital the information we are going to share with you is made viral as quickly as possible. The ethnic Rohingya people of Myanmar Burma in Southeast Asia are about to be massacred. Barbarous acts are being carried out by Neo-Nazi racist groups like the Rakhine Nationalities Development Party, Arakan Liberation Army, NaSaKa border police and 969 monks led by Monk Wirathu, the self proclaimed Bin Laden of Buddhism. The Government of Myanmar is orchestrating these crimes.
In May 1985, a Guatemalan Army lieutenant named Jorge Vinicio Sosa Orantes deserted, flew to San Francisco and requested political asylum, asserting that leftist guerrillas in his war-torn homeland were gunning for him.
The 27-year-old officer described his combat exploits in his application for asylum. He said he had served as an instructor in the elite “Kaibil” commandos and as a “commanding officer” in Guatemala’s bloody civil war.
“It is impossible for me and family to return as we have been sentenced to death due to my participation in the various combats in the conflictive area,” he wrote in his asylum application.
Immigration officials rejected his request, but Sosa sought asylum in Canada and became a citizen there. He eventually returned to the United States and became a U.S. citizen as well.
