One Region in Myanmar Limits Births of Muslims
NewYork Times ^ | May 25, 2013 | THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

YANGON, Myanmar — The local authorities in the western state of Rakhine in Myanmar have imposed a two-child limit for Muslim Rohingya families, a policy that does not apply to Buddhists in the area and comes amid accusations of ethnic cleansing during earlier sectarian violence.

...

It was unclear how the local government would enforce the rule, and the announcement could be as much about playing to the country’s Buddhist majority as about actual policy. It was also unclear what effect the new limits would have; there have already been restrictions on Rohingyas marrying, which analysts said were meant to decrease the birthrate.

A spokesman for Rakhine State, Win Myaing, said the new program was meant to stem rapid population growth in the Muslim community, which a government-appointed commission identified as one of the causes of the sectarian violence.

No problem. Just treat muslim men the way they treated their own African slaves. They preferred them castrated...

I think that’s mighty generous of the Buddhists, considering. I’d take the deal before they wake up and cut it (so to speak) to zero.

...it is a non-violent way to deal with the issue - and the West, particularly Europe, is QUICKLY running out of non-violent options.

Issue them free bottled water at the welfare office. Like we do here with deer licks containing birth control.

Give them the choice: fewer births, or more deaths.

IUD implantation during well woman checkups might work well for all concerned. Sorry but violence is imminent unless they stop actively breeding for Jihad and never denounced, even by an American “president” so-to-speak.

It should be the law in all western countries that anybody who professes to be muslim should be sterilized.

Thailand has a huge Muslim problem in South Thailand with the psycho Muslims killing Buddhists and trying to drive them out of territories. Burma must have the same problem. Limiting Muslim births is a great idea since Muslims are always the ones who try to out-demographic other peoples. Muslim births should always be limited in any civilized nation they worm their way into. Want to have more Muzzie kids? Move back to Muzzie Land

That’s not who we are - thanks God. That said, all immigration from Muslim Countries should be stopped until this ‘terror war’ is over. Muslims who are here are part of the American family and we need to assimilate them. But zero new immigration from Muslim countries.

The Iranian ambassador to the UN had just finished giving a speech and walked out into the lobby where he met the United States ambassador, John Bolton.

They exchanged pleasantries and as they walked the Iranian said, "You know I have just one question about what I have seen in America."

Ambassador Bolton said, "Well anything I can do to help you, I will."

The Iranian whispered, "My son watches this show 'Star Trek' and in it there is Chekhov who is Russian, Scotty who is Scottish, and Sulu who is Chinese, but no Iranians. My son is very upset and doesn't understand why there aren't any Arabs or Muslims or Islamists on Star Trek."

Bolton laughed, leaned toward the Iranian ambassador and whispered back, "It's because it takes place in the future."

That’s at least two too many. I do wonder how it is enforced...perhaps an appropriately placed tourniquet?

“Muslims who are here are part of the American family....”

.
And what if their intention is not to integrate and to destroy the American family?

Limit of two muslim births per woman or per man? They’re not the same.
