Myanmar: Rohingya's or Bengali's?

President Obama – the architect of a resurgent neo-Nazism in the Ukraine and a supporter of Israeli terrorism – congratulates Myanmar’s Aung San Suu Kyi on her running of Myanmar – despite ongoing ethnic violence between the Burmese Authorities (supported by some orders of Buddhist monks) and the Islamic Rohingya minority which mainly live in the northern region of Rakhine State, Apparently, Aung San Suu Kyi has personally requested that US diplomats do not use the word ‘Rohingya’ – as this suggests these people are ethnic Burmese (and have a right to remain in Myanmar despite their citizenship being taken away from them in 1982) – but rather refer to them as illegal Bengali immigrants. 155 more words
