Myanmar is a small southeast Asian country bordering India, China and Bangladesh. It is home to one of the most discriminated Muslim minorities in the global south.
The ongoing discrimination perpetuated by the Rakhine Buddhist communities, sectarian violence against the Rohingya Muslims.
A military crackdown on Rohingya civilians by Myanmar’s security forces displaced hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims and was the start of a series of inhuman acts of violence against the Muslim community in northern Myanmar.
In this article, we’ll tackle the unfortunate situation of the Rohingya Muslims as well as what enabled their oppression to continue for as long as it did.
The Brutal and Systematic Genocide of the Rohingya Muslims
The Rohingya genocide is a series of continuous persecutions and murders by the Myanmar military of Rohingya Muslims.
It consists of 2 phases as far as we know. The first known phase was in the form of a military crackdown which took place from October 2016 till January 2017, and the second one has been ongoing since August 2017.
The crisis forced over a million Rohingya Muslim citizens to migrate outside the country. Most of them fled to Bangladesh, which gave birth to what we now know as the world’s largest refugee camp, while others escaped to India, Thailand, Malaysia, and other parts of South and Southeast Asia, where they continuously face discrimination.

The UN acknowledged this to be a systemic ethnic cleansing of the Rohingya Muslims.
There are countless harrowing tales that follow the innocent civilians who had their homes broken into, those who fled for a better life and those who suffered long-term consequences for everything they went through.
Take Uma Suleiman’s story for example. During the raid she had her home broken into, forcibly taken by 2 army soldiers into a rice paddy then raped and left bleeding by them both.
Now she’s living in an overcrowded refugee camp in Bangladesh housing over 900 thousand refugees, taking care of a 3 month old infant who’s a constant reminder of the nightmare/fueled trauma she had suffered a year prior.
Her story is one of many who have suffered either having watched their homes burst into flames, children kidnapped, killed, scarred and mutilated and family members shot execution style.
The mass rapes have resulted in an unknown numbers of unwanted pregnancies and forced survivors with a terrible choice, forcing them to relive their trauma while adding a new layer to it.
That’s not mentioning the hundreds of thousands human tracking incidents that took place in Bengali refugee camps. Luring in Rohingya Muslims with false dreams of finding work and a better life some place far away.
Another tale is of a woman who got separated from her husband during a clash in which he was attempting to buy them time to flee to safety. Now, the woman is forced to raise her children on her own in a poorly set up refugee camp with not enough food and water for her and her children wondering about the whereabouts of her husband who had gone missing since the day they got separated.
In reality, the persecution of the Rohingya Muslims by the military and police forces of their government dates back to the 70s, and has been a regular occurrence since then.
The continuous ethnic cleansing and killings of them resulted in a refugee crisis, over a million citizens fled the country, the destruction of villages and towns across the northwestern parts of Myanmar.
Refuged Rohingya Muslim Children Denied Education
It’s been almost five years since a brutal military operation caused the unfortunate demise of thousands of Rohingya Muslims and displaced over 800,000 over the border to Bangladesh.
In what seems to be the world’s largest refugee settlement, around five hundred thousand children are in a desperate need of a proper education, which most international relief efforts are failing to provide.

The Rohingya Muslims were already denied education in their home country in Myanmar after a military crackdown that took place in 2012 and never let up. And in 2017 the government schools that taught them in Burmese quickly shutdown after Myanmar Military’s offensive in august of that year.
However, after hundreds of thousands migrated to different parts of the world including India in hopes of pursuing better livable lifestyles and a chance to go to school had their dreams shattered.
Take the story of Ibrahim Mohammad, a 10 year old Muslim from northern Myanmar for example. His family says he used to be a vibrant energetic child with a big love for school and learning— but after witnessing the fire burning his parents’ house by Myanmar military, his grandfather murder by aggressive militant soldiers, and his mother forced to deliver a baby in the forest as his family scattered along side hundreds of thousands of other Rohingya Muslims to Bangladesh.
Ibrahim, who used to hope and dream of becoming a doctor in the future, is now prone to long stretches of silence, mood swings, and he barely smiles anymore.
Any education facilities provided by relief and charitable organizations did not have the children’s best interest at heart.
Reports say that most of these educational institutions focused on teaching the children songs in foreign languages to impress the foreign press and potential donors without taking into account the children’s other skills like speaking, reading and writing.
That made the parents frustrated and withdrew their children from these schools. The few families working odd jobs that could afford to hire private tutors to teach their children pay around $70 a month to ensure that their children learn.
Social Media’s Roles in Perpetuating, Enabling and Fueling the Hatred Against Rohingya Muslims
It’s a well known fact that social media influences the masses’ way of thinking regarding many topics and discussions. And the Rohingya Muslim situation is no different. Take the poorly constructed hate-speech censorship on Facebook against the Rohingya Muslims made by the Myanmar hate groups have elevated the general consensus and hatred towards the small Muslim minority.
During the UN’s reports on addressing the issue regarding what the Myanmar’s government and military forces and calling it a systematic genocide and ethnic cleansing.
But the UN report also addressed Facebook’s slow action regarding the hate speech that spread like wildfire in its platform, the UN report described it as a “useful instrument for those seeking to spread hate,” adding that the company’s response to concerns about its role had been “slow and ineffective.”
It said that the “extent to which Facebook posts and messages have led to real-world discrimination must be independently and thoroughly investigated.”
Facebook then worked to ban hundreds of hate groups created by military officials and citizens of Myanmar spreading hate speech against Rohingya Muslims. It said that some of them were followed by over 12 million people.
To the peoples of the world: Israel is Carrying out a holocaust against Palestinian families
Yes, Israel is not sending Palestinians to gas chambers. But Israel is bringing Auschwitz and Mauthhausen to Palestinian homes, neighborhood, hospitals and mosques.
The title of this brief article is not a hyperbole or a dramatic overstatement meant to attract attention or gain sympathy. It is rather a reflection of reality.
Indeed, if a holocaust is about annihilating people, especially civilians and Palestinian families, the Israeli army, the Wehrmacht of our time, has been exterminating entire Palestinian families-the father, the mother and all the children.
We are not speaking about one isolated incident or a few incidents where one stray missile hit a home inadvertently or children killed as a result of collateral damage.
We are rather talking about carrying out a real holocaust against Palestinian families, an official policy endorsed and pursued by the government of Israel to wipe out numerous Palestinian households for the purpose of bringing the Palestinians to their knees.
This is Israel’s way of wreaking shock and awe on the defenseless and helpless Palestinians.
So far, more than 25 thousand entire Gaza households have been targeted by Israeli bombing. More than 12 thousands have been killed half of them are children and women.
Just imagine your own family being annihilated by a missile launched from high altitude. This nightmare has effectively become a routine experience in Gaza.
Israel today is emulating the Nazis and other criminal offenders throughout history. Don’t invoke the mantra of anti-Semitism. In the final analysis, when Jews think, behave and act like the Nazis thought, behaved and acted, they (the Jews) become Nazis themselves, pure and simple.
Yes, I do recognize there are many kind-hearted Jews who reject this Nazi-like savagery. None the less, we must call the spade a spade. These atrocities are being enthusiastically supported by the vast majority of Israelis, including ordinary people, intellectuals and rabbis. Israel-2023 does have much in common with Nazi-Germany. Claiming otherwise would be both dishonest and malicious.
Israel, a notorious professional liar whose agents control western media outlets from Sydney to California, is misleading the international community as to what is really happening in the Gaza Strip.
A regional military superpower thanks to unrestricted American backing and support, Israel is simply waging a war of extermination against a thoroughly persecuted people whose only “crime” is its enduring vigor and longing for freedom from the shackles of Talmudic Jewish Nazism, a Satanic ideology which views all humanity-save Jews-as animals whose lives have absolutely no sanctity.
There is no doubt that the ongoing Israeli rampage of murder and terror is an expression of that genocidal Talmudic mentality. It is a mindset that is even more nefarious than the Nazi ideology.
We Palestinians have been at the receiving end of Jewish criminality and murderousness for several decades. We know it too well and need no one to give us lectures on “Israel’s civility and humanity”
In the final analysis, a country that murders thousands of children and other innocent civilians rather knowingly and deliberately in order to create deterrence is neither civilized nor humane. It is tantamount to fornicating with truth to call Israel humane and civilized.
The truth of the matter is that Israel is a diabolical Judeo-Nazi entity that has much in common with the Third Rich.
Yes, Israel is not sending Palestinians to gas chambers. But Israel is bringing Auschwitz to Palestinian homes, neighborhoods and streets. Israel is carrying out a real holocaust against innocent Palestinian families.
This is not really a war. War is fought between armies. The Palestinians don’t have an army, or navy or air force. The Palestinians simply can not protect their own children from overwhelming barbarianism, played out in full view of the entire world.
Yes, there have been projectiles fired on Jewish colonies from the Gaza Strip, but these projectiles are essentially innocuous from the military view point as evident from the nearly zero casualties incurred by Israelis.
Indeed, when there is one dead on one side and 300 on the other side, including 50 children and babies, in addition thousands of maimed civilians and swathes of pornographic destruction of property, we are not really talking about war, even an asymmetrical war. We are actually talking about a real massacre, a massacre that is reminiscent of the time when the Nazis ganged up on European Jewry 70 years ago.
This very real massacre, holocaust, wouldn’t have been carried out had it not been for the flaccidity and leniency and silence displayed in Israel’s face by the bulk of the international community.
This is not to mention the connivance, collusion and conspiratorial roles played by several criminal states and governments, including the United States, a majority of European governments and especially the whore-like Sissi regime in Cairo which is shamelessly and brazenly siding with Israel against the Palestinian people.
But never mind, another massacre, another blitzkrieg, another conspiracy won’t finish our people off. It is our kismet that we must die in order to survive.
But those in Washington and London and Cairo who are watching rather passively, probably gleefully, as our children are being incinerated and murdered at the hands of the children, grand children and great-grand children of the holocaust, will one day pay the price for their murderous complicity and ignominy.
We will not forgive or forget.
Israel: A criminal state par excellance
In its exaggerated self-infatuation and excessive narcissism, Israel, a criminal state par excellence, often claims it is light upon mankind.
Zionist Jews, who falsely claim allegiance to the prophetic traditions of ancient Israel, are actually mostly atheists.
In fact, Zionism has more in common with the most infamous paragons of evil throughout history than with such Hebrew luminaries as the Prophet Moses, Aaron, Jacob, Joseph, David, and Solomon.
Indeed, ever since its misbegotten birth in 1948, a birth fraught with crimes against humanity, Israel’s modus operandi has been an uninterrupted series of atrocities, oppression, persecution, inequity, and racism.
Thus, Israel, A criminal state par excellence, is also a great falsifier of truth, history by claiming a higher moral ground vis-à-vis the Palestinians, its largely-unwept victims who are still crying to the seventh heaven for justice.
Israel is already starving and tormenting 1.6 million Gazans, denying them food, clean water, and other necessities of life. The 17-year draconian siege is apparently meant to punish Gazans for electing Hamas which simply refuses to recognize Israel for religious and moral reasons. The international community sought to overlook Israel’s real crimes against humanity inflicted repeatedly on some two million helpless Palestinians languishing under a N-a-z-i-like siege imposed and maintained by Israel.
Israel portrays herself as a beacon of light in a sea of dictatorship, tyranny, and oppression,
What Israel, a criminal state par Excellance, refuses to tell the world, however, is the fact that the Jewish state through its ubiquitous tentacles in America, Europe and elsewhere to enable, shield, sustain, and support tyrannical regimes in the region such as the Sissi police state in Egypt, the feudal regimes in Saudi Arabia, UAE and Bahrain.
Israel, a notorious professional liar whose agents control western media outlets from Sydney to California, is misleading the international community as to what is really happening in Jerusalem and in the Gaza Strip.
Israel, ruled by supremacist and megalomaniac Jews who think that no country or entity under the sun has a right to criticize Israel’s appalling maltreatment of the Palestinians, believes it has an unending free season on its victims.
Those are the Nazi-minded ideologues who are indoctrinated in Talmudic Jewish supremacy and who believe that the non-Jews lives have no sanctity , those are the Talmudic thugs who believe that the Palestinians must either be expelled or massacred .
As to its victims, Israel seeks always to demonize and dehumanize them so that the world will react indifferently if not callously when Israel murders them, expels them from their homes, steals their land and property as well as demolish their homes, a nearly daily callous practice the state of the Jews carries out in the West Bank.
Israel was born in sin. It will always be a sinful state, no matter what we read in the New York Times and the Washington Post or what we see on CNN and Fox News.
World passively watching as Israel perpetrates open-ended massacre in Gaza
The Israeli army, which can be called the Jewish Wehrmacht given its Nazi-like behavior, continues to pound the Gaza Strip from ground, sea and air. According to sources in Gaza, virtually all targets hit so far are civilians.
As many as 3500 Palestinians, virtually all of them civilians, have been reported killed so far. Thousands others were injured, many sustaining life-threatening wounds.
The scenes of mutilated and maimed children, some of whose bodies are seen protruding through the rubble of their homes, destroyed by missiles fired by American-supplied F-16 fighter jets, seem to verify the view that Israel is targeting Palestinian civilians in Gaza knowingly and deliberately.
Israeli leaders and military officials are openly gloating over the high death toll among Palestinian civilians. They blame Hamas for the orgy of killing. However, virtually all Palestinians don’t buy the Israeli logice.
As we all know, this is not the first time Israel indulges in such war crimes.
Israel has always been a regular perpetrator of war crimes . Indeed, one would exaggerate very little by arguing that Israel itself is a war crime or a crime against humanity.
I am not going to spend time refuting Israeli hasbara lies, blaming Hamas for the latest conflagration. Having been a vigilant observer of Israeli behavior for several decade , I can honestly argue that honesty and Israel can not really be used in the same sentence. Israel and honesty are an eternal oxymoron.

As always, Israel violated the uneasy truce reached through Egyptian mediation in 2002. Israeli leaders, proceeding from the Talmudic ideology which views all non-Jews as lesser human beings or virtual animals, don’t feel bound by agreements or treaties reached with “Goyem.“
People in the west, long duped and brainwashed by Zionist propaganda, may raise they eyebrows when reading these words. But we who live with these Judeo-Nazis and have been at the receiving end of their murderousness and evilness know better.
We don’t need and won’t accept lectures about the “humanity and civility” of the N-a-z-i-s of our time.
Hamas and other Palestinian resistance groups in Gaza don’t constitute an existential threat to Israel, which has one of the strongest military machines in the world.
In fact, the claim that Gaza is threatening Israel is infinitely ridiculous. The thoroughly-starved and hermetically blockaded Gazans have a hard time feeding their children, let alone pose any meaningful threat to the N-a-z-i Germany of our time, a pugnacious state that more or less tightly controls the most powerful country under the sun, the United States.
It is sad and lamentable that a country of 320 million has allowed itself to be enslaved by Zionist pressure groups, hell-bent on prostituting America and eviscerating it of any semblance of morality for Israel’s sake.
Palestinians have resist Jewish terror
But the Palestinians can not take their very survival for granted. They can’t rely on the so-called international community to shield them against Jewish N-a-z-i-s-m.
Indeed, if the Palestinians don’t defend themselves, who is going to defend them? Obama? Merkel? Or Puten?
Hence, the valiant Palestinian determination to put up a semblance of resistance to the Jewish Wehrmacht. The Israeli assault on Gaza is not an assault on Hamas; It is rather a nefarious aggression against the entire Palestinian people. It is intended to break our people’s will to resist Israeli Nazism. Pure and simple.
To put the matter in a nutshell, the Palestinians in Gaza are simply defending themselves against an overwhelming evil force that is hell bent on ethnically cleansing them and stealing their motherland. Our fighters don’t fire their home-made missiles on Israel because they want to spill Jewish blood. They do it because this is the only means they possess to deter a cannibalistic enemy that can only feel good if and when it spills Palestinian blood.
Besides, the problem with Israel didn’t begin last week or last year.
Just remember that many of the people being now bombarded and murdered by the Jewish Wehrmacht are actually children, grand children and great grand children of the original Palestinian refugees that Israel massacred or brutally expelled out of their homes when the evil state was created in Palestine in 1948.
Hence, the Palestinians in Gaza can not really be terrorists if only because they were never the initiator of violence and terror. The Palestinians were living peaceably in their towns and villages, mostly leading a simple pastoral life until waves of Khazari Jews, who had no real connection with the ancient Israelites, invaded Palestine with the aid of Western countries, especially the evil empire, the United Kingdome.
Yes, it was Britain that put the venomous Jewish snake in the bed of the Palestinian child. Britain, as Noam Chomsky wisely said, can not claim innocence or argue that it didn’t know the snake was so poisonous.
Gaza Massacre: Surviving by dying
Today, Palestinians are sacrificing their lives for their freedom, dignity and survival. This is what they have always been doing from time immemorial. We are very much children of martyrs who were themselves children of martyrs. We survived despite a harsh history of plots and conspiracies that aimed to eradicate us as a people from the face of earth.
We in Gaza will survive the latest Israeli blitz as well
However, the world community ought to feel ashamed for watching the Nazi Germany of our time gang up on a defenseless people in Gaza whose only crime is that it is not part of “the holy tribe,”
This conspicuously immoral world , which doesn’t respect any modicum of respect, will surely have a precarious future. It will face ultimate demise.
