Obama: Myanmar won’t succeed if Muslims are oppressed
Reuters ^ | Sun Apr 27, 2014 5:05am EDT | Matt Spetalnick

Posted on 05/03/2014 7:51:37 PM PDT by Olog-hai

U.S. President Barack Obama said on Sunday that the rights of Myanmar’s minority Muslim population were not being fully protected and warned that the Southeast Asian country would not succeed if Muslims there were oppressed.

On a visit to Malaysia, Obama praised political reforms under way in once-isolated Myanmar, but said the danger of democratization was that it could unleash religious and ethnic conflicts and that such developments could move Myanmar in a bad direction. …

But he’s expressed no concerns about the oppression and persecution of Christians in Iraq, Iran, Syria, Egypt, the Palestian Authority, Saudi Arabia, Nigeria; ah heck, practically all Moslem majority nations. I can’t name them all.

Always promoting, protecting. Funding, arming, complimenting, enabling, defending, and making up praises for islamonazis, the more murderous and anti-American or anti-Christian the better. Meanwhile, he weakens America, our economy, and our allies. Give him credit: he’s consistent and very loyal to his people.

A shipment of heavy munitions to the maniacs, along with a fat check and a sincere apology with deep kowtowing should suffice for this administration.

**Myanmar won’t succeed if Muslims are oppressed**

If that’s true there......then if the rights of Christians are ignored in the U. S., then Americans will not succeed and will be oppressed.

Logical?

Only 4% of Myanmar’s population are Muslims. That is low enough so they should seriously consider following in the footsteps of Angola, and outlawing Islam altogether.

Always admired the Karen people and the way they stood up to the military junta in Burma. On a side note a few of their people were arrested here in South Australia the other day for hunting possums and koala seems that nobody told them about not hunting our furry little endangered wildlife - I am sure they will get off with a warning! Hopefully!

Six months into this nightmare regime I couldn’t believe what the voters had done. His highness was on the T.V. and radio every day, making one pronouncement or another. Felt like he was screaming at me. I wanted to choke anyone close-by who voted for him.
Then look what came along with him. The most mean-faced person I’ve ever seen. I think many feel sorry for their daughters.

Anymore like BHO being groomed somewhere?? Sounds silly saying that. But he was being groomed - right??

We’ve got to have our eyes open constantly so that something similar isn’t foisted upon us EVer again.

BS , Asian Muz breed like rabbits ( or rats) they quickly become the majority in every nation in asia if nothing is done to keep their numbers in check . Burma is a Buddhist nation . It is a Buddhist nation because the original Indian Buddhist had to flee muslim slaughter in India . They fled to Burma and points east and north . Beyond the moslem hoards . Of course the Buddhist countries do not want bulging muzlim populations now . They are wise ! Let the Rohingya migrate to the middle eastern muzlim countries , They need menial labor there .

Or in the steps of the Central African Republic, and driving them out of the country.

The source of the unrest is their southern neighbor, Muslim Malaysia, and its desire for a chunk of the offshore oil and gas fields. They've been fomenting Muslim unrest in southern Thailand for the same reason.

Have Obama ever condemned the daily massacre of Christians by Muslims all around Africa and the Middle East?

THE OBAMA GENOCIDE DENIAL

Posted By Daniel Greenfield On June 13, 2012 In Daily Mailer,FrontPage

Suppose that there was a country where Muslims were being massacred every month and mosques and imams were being targeted and destroyed. Could anyone imagine the Obama Administration choosing to remain silent in the face of such atrocities?

A mob attack on Muslims in Burma immediately resulted in a condemnation from the State Department and a call for its government to make more concessions to Muslims. But a car bombing and shooting attack on two churches in Nigeria have not been similarly commented on by the State Department, sending the message that Muslim life is precious, but Christian life is cheap. The Muslim dead of Burma are sacred, but the Christian dead of Nigeria are only more dead infidels.

Boko Haram, the Islamic terrorist organization responsible for both attacks, has yet to be declared a terrorist organization by the State Department, despite having carried out religiously motivated bombings and shootings that have killed over a thousand people in the last few years alone. These numbers begin to approach the level of murders carried out by the Taliban in Afghanistan.

The “Boko Haram Terrorist Designation Act of 2012”, introduced by Senator Scott Brown, mandates that the State Department produce a detailed report that either designates Boko Haram as a terrorist group or justifies why it should not be listed as a terrorist group. A similar bill was introduced by Congressman Meehan in the House.

It is a testament to the obstructionism of the State Department and its whitewashing of Boko Haram that such a bill even had to be introduced. While the State Department has played delaying games, the bodies of murdered Christians have continued piling up.

It is also tragically noteworthy that all eleven sponsors of the “Boko Haram Terrorist Designation Act”, in both the Senate and the House, have been Republicans. Not a single Democrat appeared to be willing to stand up for the human rights of Nigerian Christians. If the “Boko Haram Terrorist Designation Act” comes down to a vote, that vote should be seen as nothing less than a test of complicity for individual Democrats in the cover-up of Nigeria’s Islamic genocide by the Obama Administration.

Genocide denial pervades not only the Obama Administration and its Congressional allies, but also the media, which continues to promote the destructive myth that Boko Haram is not truly religiously motivated and that it can only be stopped by giving more money and power to the Muslim north.

Had a non-Muslim group carried out numerous attacks on mosques and Muslim worshipers, and then ordered Muslims to leave an area, it is absolutely inconceivable that the Obama Administration and its media allies would deny that these were religiously motivated attacks. It is even more inconceivable that its preferred solution would be to tell the government to stop fighting terrorism. But what is inconceivable when it comes to Muslims is Obama Administration policy for Christians.

The rest of the history
