Sittwe Is Muslim-Free For 438 Days Today

A busy street scene of now Muslim-free Sittwe.
If one counts the days since Bengali-Muslims were expelled from Sitwwe one will find exactly 438 days today. That is one year and two months and eleven days. 

The first day of anti-Bengali-Muslim riots was June 9, 2012. One day after the Bengali-Muslims started the riots in the border town of Maungdaw.

At the beginning just after the June-2012 Muslim riots the Yakhin State Government authorities met with the city elders of Sittwe City at the City Hall and asked them if they really wanted to live without Bengali-Muslims as there would be a severe labour shortage without illegal Bengalis-Muslims.

Kantbalu Burning After Gang-Rape Attempt By Muslims

(Compilation of translated articles from various Burmese and Bengali blogs this week.)

A mosque burning in Htan Gone of Kantbalu Town.
Like in many other non-Muslim countries the Muslim Men in our Burma keep their women strictly inside. And as part of their sexual jihad they go out and assault non-Muslim females who have complete freedom to go about outside alone.

In Burma the brunt of these sexual assaults by Muslim men are borne by many young Buddhist women who have much higher degree of freedom than Muslim women.

On the evening of August-24 a group of three horny Bengali-Muslims tried to rape a lone Buddhist-Burmese woman in middle Burma. The place was a large village (almost a small town) called Htan Gone in the Kantbalu Township of Shwe Bo District in Sagaing Division.

Quintana Pissed Off By Local Buddhists At Meikhtilar

(Direct translation of news articles from the Eleven Media Group on 22 August 2013.)

Crying Quintana recalling emotionally his so-called
dangerous encounter with town-Buddhists in Meikhtilar.
Burmese government and the local Buddhists from Meikhtilar in Burma had strongly denied the hated-Qunitana’s emotional claim that his vehicle-convoy was violently attacked by the townspeople in Meikhtilar at about 10 in the night of 19th August.

“My car was descended upon by a crowd of around 200 people who proceeded to punch and kick the windows and doors of the car while shouting abuse.” in Quintana’s own words.

At his August-21 airport-press-conference just before his departure from Rangoon International Airport the UN Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Burma Tomas Ojea Quintana recalled his fearful experience in Meikhtilar and claimed that about 200 strong mob bashed the panels and kicked the doors and windows of his vehicle and the police escort with him didn’t do a thing to protect him.

Egypt’s Nasser Laughed Off Muslim Brotherhood (1966)

Late Colonel Nasser the former president of Egypt.
Egypt’s Nasser laughed off Muslim Brotherhood's demand to force ten millions Egyptian women to wear Muslim-headbags.

Hiding for months in plain view on YouTube, a grainy video has begun to circulate of longtime Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser laughing off the Muslim Brotherhood demands that the state uphold Islamic traditions and force ten millions Egyptian women to wear oppressive Islamic garbs.

The clip is charged with historical significance in light of the Brotherhood's rise to power earlier this year in Egypt -- and broader questions about Islam and society in the Arab world. The 1966 video has gone viral with French subtitles after being posted by Paris-based news website Rue 89.

Meet The Pro-969 American Buddhist

"We love 969 from our heart" poster.
Meet the American Supporting Myanmar's Controversial Pro-Buddhist 969 movement.

He's a self-proclaimed "white American national" who has no family connections to Myanmar and has never visited the country. He's not an expert on its politics either, he tells me -- which becomes clear later in our conversation when he draws a blank on the name of Aung San Suu Kyi, likely the most famous Burmese person alive today, whom he calls a "prime minister candidate" (she's actually planning on staging a run for the presidency).

But something about the 969 movement -- the controversial pro-Buddhist campaign that many hold responsible for the violence that has racked Myanmar in recent months -- has captured the imagination of this man.

Crisis Of Modernity And Secularism In Muslim Nations

Turkish anti-Islamist uprsing (2013).
Whenever democratic space has opened up, people have been eager to choose those who not only provide a better solution for their economic and social problems, but who can also offer them a recognition of the authenticity of their cultures.

The idea that the West has a mission to civilize the rest of the world rests on a conventional view of modernity in which modernity is viewed as involving a separation between religion and the public sphere.

This mission sets out to impose a singular and unidirectional conception of modernity on Islamic countries that overlooks the differentiated experiences and perceptions of non-western societies, as well as the differentiated experiences within the west towards modernity. Instead, religion becomes the decisive factor in determining who is modern and who is not, and, by extension, who is civilized and who is not.

How Bangladesh’s Child Deaths Dropped 80%

In 1968, The Lancet published the results of a modest trial of what is now regarded as among the most important medical advances of the twentieth century. It wasn’t a new drug or vaccine or operation. It was basically a solution of sugar, salt, and water that you could make in your kitchen. The researchers gave the solution to victims of a cholera outbreak in Dhaka, the capital of what is now Bangladesh, and the results were striking.

Cholera is a violent and deadly diarrheal illness, caused by the bacterium Vibrio cholera, which the victim usually ingests from contaminated water. The bacteria secrete a toxin that triggers a rapid outpouring of fluid into the intestine. The body, which is sixty per cent water, becomes like a sponge being wrung out. The fluid pouring out is a cloudy white, likened to the runoff of washed rice. It produces projectile vomiting and explosive diarrhea. Children can lose a third of their body’s water in less than twenty-four hours, a fatal volume. Drinking water to replace the fluid loss is ineffective, because the intestine won’t absorb it. As a result, mortality commonly reached seventy per cent or higher. During the nineteenth century, cholera pandemics killed millions across Asia, Europe, Africa, and North America. The disease was dubbed the Blue Death because of the cyanotic blue-gray color of the skin from extreme dehydration.

Taliban Opens Terrorist-Training Camps In Burma

Praying Bengali-Muslim-Talibans at Bangladeshi Border.
Over two dozen high-definition images reportedly published in an Urdu-language Internet forum suggest the Taliban has successfully recruited Rohingya Muslims, Bangladeshis, and Indonesian nationals and are training them in an undisclosed camp in Myanmar, a report by Asian News International (ANI) says.

The images that come with Urdu captions were posted on the ‘Bab-e-Islam Jihadi Internet Forum’ and sourced from a Facebook account on July 12, according to a leading Washington-based research institute, Jihad and Terrorism Threat Monitor (JTTM) of the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI).

Quintana, His Bengali-Muslims, and Their Camp-Riots

(Compilation of translated articles from various Burmese and Bengali blogs last week.)

Rioting Bengali-Muslims confronting Burmese police
at Bawduphat Bengali-refugee-camp near Sittwe.
Tomas Ojea Quintana the United Nations Special Rapporteur on the human rights situations in Burma is now in troubled-Arakan since August 11. He is hated by the native-Buddhist Yakhines for his extremely-biased stance against Buddhists but loved by the illegal Bengali-Muslims originally from Bangladesh for his favouritism towards them.

Since last year Muslim-Buddhist riots in the Arakan most of them Bengali-Muslims (so-called Rohingyas) have been herded into various refugee camps by the Burmese security forces and they were ready to ignite another set of riots again to show the world their plights through their man Tomas Quintana.

India Forces Buddhist Refugees Back Into Bangladesh

  (Direct translation of news article direct from Myanmar Express on 13 August 2013.)

Buddhists fleeing the recent genocide in Bangladesh.
More than 1,500 Buddhist refugees fleeing their homes in the Chittagong-hill-tracts of Bangladesh were forcefully pushed back into Bangladesh by the Indian border security forces on August 12.

The Buddhist refugees from the Yakhine tribes of Maramar, Thet, and Dynet had fled from their homes after one of the frequently-occurring genocidal attacks by the Bangladeshi Muslim settlers during the 3-days long Muslim-riots from August 3 to August 5.

The Buddhists had fled to the neighbouring Indian State of Tripura after the Bangladeshi-Muslims attacked and burned down their houses in the Khagrahchari District - in Bangladesh’s once-Buddhist-majority Chittagong Hill Tracts – after the false rumours of Buddhists kidnapping a Bangladeshi-Muslim Cycle-carrier were maliciously spread by the Islamist jihadists hell bent on driving all the Buddhists out of CHT.

Nay Pyi Daw – Strategic Capital For Burma’s Survival

On 6 November 2005 Burma’s military government abruptly moved the administrative capital of Burma from Rangoon to a remote area - 2,723 square miles wide between Shan Yoma and Yegu Yoma ranges - at about 200 miles north of the former capital city of Rangoon.

Even though the actual construction of the new capital city Nay Pyi Daw has been going on quietly since 2002 by at least 30 large construction companies the strategic plan to build the new administrative centre had been secretly drawn up since 1995-96 by the Burma’s ruling military.

Even though costing at least US$ 20 Billion after spending a considerable portion of Burma’s national budgets the Nay Pyi Daw mega-project has been an ideal capital most country’s armed-forces can only dream of.

Breeding-Muslims Cost Britain £13+ Billion A Year

Britain is sinking under unproductive Muslims costing the British tax-payers £13+ Billion every year.

Modest numerical calculations based on government statistics, Wikileaks and media reports reveal that the British government spend a minimum £13+ billion a year from tax revenues on unproductive Muslims in the country.

While the government is trying to create £12 billion in annual cuts by targeting the handicapped, elderly, and poor amongst it’s own citizens, they have ignored a group that is highly overrepresented above anyone else in welfare exploitation. Sweden appears to be gripped in a similar situation with the country drowning in Muslim related expenses.

8-8-88 (Four-Shit) Uprising: Anarchy and Head-Choppings

Nowadays there are so many just-over-20-year-olds at my work and I began to realize the 8-8-88 Uprising exactly 25 years ago is now just a history for them. But for me who was     barely 18 in August 1988 the failed Uprising is still recent in my mind.

Back then I was a tenth-grade student at State High School No-3 (SHS-3) in Thin-gan-gyung township in Rangoon. Our school was on the laneway from BOC Bend near former Irrawaddy cinema to Thin-gan-gyun train-station. The local people there were mostly Kalars (Muslims and Hindus).

On 8-8-88 there were mass protests in the city. But we didn’t hear anything about soldiers’ shooting to disperse the crowd then. The whole thing started from a fight between a small group of RIT students and the local youths from the Kyo-gone ward at a teashop where the violent argument broke out on which songs the shop should play.

"8-8-88 Uprising and Me" by Ye Min Htun

(This is the direct translation of Ye Min Htun’s ‘Four 8 Uprising and Me’.)  

Practicing politics in Burma is an extremely high risk profession. A politician in dictatorial Burma could be arrested any time and during the long BSPP (Burma Socialist Program Party) rule it could be outright dangerous for a politician to be arrested. Since I was very young I’d heard the tragic stories of many jailed politicians whose lives were forever destroyed.

I often witnessed the MIS men in a Mazda E2000 mini-truck regularly taking away that old red-flag Communist Yee Mhaing (a) Nyo Mhaing whenever the dates of politically significant events from past approached. Sometimes he came back in few days but sometimes it could take months or even years. His life was so unstable he didn’t have a job. He couldn’t even work as an itinerant laborer and I sometimes felt really bad seeing him wandering from one teashop to another teashop.
