A Nobel Peace Prize Winnerís Shame: Aung San Suu Kyi, a beloved Nobel Peace Prize [tr]
NY Times ^ | September 9, 2017 | Nicholas Kristoff

For the last three weeks, Buddhist-majority Myanmar has systematically slaughtered civilians belonging to the Rohingya Muslim minority, forcing 270,000 to flee to neighboring Bangladesh — with Myanmar soldiers shooting at them even as they cross the border.

“The Buddhists are killing us with bullets,” Noor Symon, a woman carrying her son, told a Times reporter. “They burned houses and tried to shoot us. They killed my husband by bullet.”

Poor Ms. Aung. The Globalist Left is throwing her under the bus for actually fighting against Muslim terrorists and doing what it takes to win. These Muslims belong in Bangladesh, a Muslim country, not in Buddhist Burma. We learn that in Kristoff's world: Muslims > Buddhists.

They killed my husband by bullet.

Would you rather he was pushed out of a window?

Muslims rape, enslave, and behead Buddhists. Buddhists drive out Muslims.

So who does the NY Slimes choose to criticize?

The poor Rohingya Muslims this past July started a widespread civil war against everyone else in Myanmar. Their civil war was financed by Saudi Arabia and now that they’re losing they’re crying to the West to help them against those bad old Buddhists that they were trying to subjugate.

Screw them and three cheers to Aung San Suu Kyi for defending her country against Islamic extremists!

““The Buddhists are killing us with bullets,” “

You KNOW you’ve done something wrong then.

The NYT is not telling the full story. Muslim’s from Bangladesh are coming into the west coast of Burma to cause trouble. The Burmese govt has every right to protect its people and land.

This is what happened in Bangladesh to the Hindus in the later part of the 20th century. They destroyed Hindu Temples and killed and drove out all non-Muslims. A very good book on it is “Shame” by Taslima Nasrin.

This is a coordinated, globalist effort to concoct a MASSIVE, Goebbels-worthy lie about a non-existent "Royhinga people" (they are merely Bengali Muslims), and smear a beloved heroine to do it.

And the coup de grace is the MUSLIM U.N. "Human Rights" chief calling it "genocide." I pray Aung Sun Suu Kyi stands firm against this evil.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Exactly as ALL muslims everywhere are religiously obligated by the Koran.

Jihad since 622 A.D.

The so-called “rebels” have publicly asked for a 30 day truce, directed at the western media.

They want to use that time to re-group, and bring in heavier weapons.

Nine - I counted them - nine paragraphs in we get this grudging admission:

It’s not that Daw Suu is organizing the killings (she does not control the military), or that they are entirely one-sided. The latest slaughter began after Rohingya militants attacked police stations and a military base on Aug. 25...

Her crime, in Kristoff's opinion, is failure to adhere to the media narrative with sufficient public condemnation. It's the same complaint we heard with regard to Trump's lack of condemnation of racist violence in Charlotte, which in fact he did, but not in terms that met media approval. Failure to advance the narrative is now a thought crime.

The Guardian let slip this little gem:

“The Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (Arsa) had launched attacks on police posts and an army base last month, prompting retaliation by Myanmar’s military.”

There is an organized insurrection against the Government and native people of Myanmar. It is another Wahhabi islamist group, funded by Gulf Arabs - like ISIS, al Queda, and company. It is accompanied by waves of ilegal muslim immigration into Myanmar from muslim-dominated Bangladesh.

You would not know that from most Western news reports though - only that Buddhists are brutal, bigoted racists, who are abusing innocent women and children.

Muslims complain mightily when their victims fight back.

What’s also interesting is how the NY Times now emphasize a new name for her “Daw Suu.”

Ang Sang Syu Ki was a nobel prize winner who we feted and loved. Let’s not mention her anymore

Let’s instead mention this devil named Daw Suu!

It took three centuries of unprovoked Jihadist attacks to finally motivate Christian Europe to launch the Crusades to liberate the holy land...and yet Leftists see the Crusades as a moral deficiency. Their’s is not a political philosophy...it is a mental disorder.

When you turn peaceable Buddhist monks into saffron-robed Rambos brandishing 9mm’s, you have REALLY messed up!

Anyway, yet another example of Muslims being the murderous savages bent on conquest of “infidels” that they have always been, and proof once again that condemnation of Islam is not racist.

Wherever you find moslems you find trouble.Whether their neighbors are Christians,Jews,Hindus,Buddhists,atheists,ancestor worshipers....there's trouble.

I think I detect a pattern here.

Why not go cry to the Armenians and the Yazidi and get some sympathy?

I have told folks that “the common denominator in all your failed relationships is you”. It seems that observation also applies to group dynamics.
