Media Rush to the Aid of Rohingya Terrorists
While the headlines of Genocide fill western media and the UN’s cheif terrorist supporter Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein denounced the “brutal security operation” against the Rohingya in Rakhine state, which he said was “clearly disproportionate” to the terrorist attacks carried out last month, he did not say how he would deal with terrorist attacks.
The Rohingya Islamic Terrorists in Western Myanmar is an ongoing insurgency in northern Rakhine State, Myanmar (formerly known as Arakan, Burma), waged by insurgents belonging to the Rohingya immigrants. Most clashes have occurred in the Maungdaw District, which borders Bangladesh.
From 1947 to 1961, local mujahideen fought government forces in an attempt to have the mostly Rohingya populated Mayu peninsula in northern Rakhine State secede from Myanmar, so it could be annexed by East Pakistan (present-day Bangladesh). During the late 1950s and early 1960s, the mujahideen lost most of its momentum and support, resulting in most of them surrendering to government forces.
In the 1970s Rohingya Islamist movements began to emerge from remnants of the mujahideen, and the fighting culminated with the Burmese government launching a massive military operation named Operation King Dragon in 1978. In the 1990s, the well-armed Rohingya Solidarity Organisation was the main perpetrator of attacks on Burmese authorities near the Myanmar-Bangladesh border.
Ms Suu Kyi – who faces strong anti-Rohingya sentiment in Myanmar – claimed the crisis in Rakhine state was being distorted by a “huge iceberg of misinformation”.
She subsequently said that Myanmar had “to take care of everybody who is in our country, whether or not they are our citizens”, and said Myanmar would “try our best” despite inadequate resources.
The reality is these Muslim extremists are terrorizing the region and must be stopped.
Extremist terrorists of the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army in the Rakhine state of Myanmar launched renewed attacks on police outposts in Rakhine on August 25.
As of September 4, many residents from Taungpyo, Letwe, Kwuntheepin, Thechaung and Meetaik areas in Maungtaw district have fled to border areas for refuge and camped along the Myanmar side along the border with Bangladesh.
Earlier reports said 97 terrorist attacks by the ARSA during the period had killed 36 people, including 13 security force members, two government service personnel and 21 ethnic people. The attacks have also injured 22 others.
A total of 59 villages and 6,842 houses were burnt down by the extremist terrorists with eight bridges destroyed by mines.
Meanwhile, 371 terrorists were so far killed in clashes with the security forces, according to the reports.
