A friend’s appeal to Britain and United States by David Obama
21 June 2012 (Thursday)
By David Obama
(Commentary) – The massacre in Arakan State by Islamic Extremist Terrorist Bengali so-called Rohingya over the past two weeks has caused disillusion for some, division among many, and shock and anguish for everyone. Racial and religious tensions that have simmered just beneath the surface for years have exploded into an ugly cycle of destruction and revenge which threatens to derail Burma’s journey towards democracy and peace.
Crude, racist abuse, deliberate misrepresentations, doctored images, misinformation and biased reporting of so-called Rohingya Bengali have added a cruel twist to an already bloody tragedy.
Some people may call me biased, and to that charge I plead guilty. But I am biased not in favour of one community over another, in favour of one race or religion over another, in favour of one particular political party over another. Instead, I am biased in favour of the universal values of human rights, including religious freedom and I am in favour of sovereignty and I am in favour of opposing terrorists and I am in favour of rule of law and I am in favour of enforcing immigration laws.
I am biased in favour of mutual respect, equal rights, peace and harmony between religions and races. I am biased in favour of the dignity of each and every human being, whatever their ethnicity or religion. I am biased against intolerance, hatred, racism and extremism.
The tragedy in Arakan State is that ordinary people from Rakhine communities have suffered. Homes burned, Buddhist monasteries desecrated, women raped, people killed – and for what purpose? It has been claimed that as many as 30,000 people are displaced as a result of the violence, although this figure is not verified because the UN has vacated its staff and independent monitors have not had access to the area. One of the first things the government of Burma should do is enforcing immigration laws to disperse illegal immigrants entering Burma and to deport them to original country.
I am writing this as a friend of Burma and all of Burma’s people. I have worked for the cause of freedom, democracy and human rights in Burma for the past 25 years, and travelled more than 100 times inside the country and to all its borders. I have been working for democratisation of Burma with all the ethnic people of Burma including Karen, Karenni, Shan, Mon, Kachin, Chin, Rakhine, Bamar and Shan. I also write as someone with extensive experience of other countries where religious intolerance is growing, often from extremist Islamism: Afghanistan, Indonesia, Pakistan and The Maldives, in particular.
And so with that background, I appeal to the governments around the world and people of Burma especially Burmese and international media not only to stop broadcasting biased news siding with so-called Rohingya Bengali Islamic Extremist Terrorists but also to respect ethnical media code of conduct and avoid taking under table money writing in favour of articles for so-called Rohingya Bengali Islamic Extremist Terrorists. They must stop Islamophilia and promoting religious intolerance and racial hatred which have come to the fore in the past few weeks. I appeal to the people of free world especially people of UK, USA and supporters around the world to see true to everything that is good and noble in Burmese and Buddhist culture, and to see reality to the values of freedom and human rights for which they have been struggling. I make this appeal on several grounds.
First, I appeal to human conscience on the grounds of humanity and human rights. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is exactly that: universal, for everyone. As Daw Aung San Suu Kyi said in her Nobel Peace Prize Lecture last Saturday, human rights are “the birthright of all”. No human being should be degraded, restricted or abused in the way the people of Burma have been by the military regime for so long and that includes Arakan.
Second, I appeal on religious grounds. From my basic understanding of Islam, I know that there is a universal Muslim greeting called “Salaam alaykum,” (“Peace be with you”). In Burmese Buddhist’s faith, people learnt from the very young age that showing “Metta or Impassionate Love” toward all the living beings. In Christianity, we are also taught to “love your enemies.” But, Rohingya Bengali Islamic Extremist Terrorists are killing peaceful Buddhist, Chyristian, Hindu Burmese and Arakan people.
Last, if simple humanity, basic human rights and core religious teachings cannot persuade people to exercise love, tolerance, respect and peace, to safeguard equal rights for all, then I appeal on grounds of self-interest.
If what I have said so far has not upset some, what I am about to say will upset others, but I must say it anyway. The Rohingya people are among the most Extremists and Radical people I have ever come across. I have visited Maung Dtaw, Buu Thee Taung and Yathe Taung where Arakanese Buddhist are living for centuries and seen the anxiety in their eyes. I have met Arakan villagers, and seen the worry in their hearts. The Arakan I know are among the most hospitable, kind, gentle, decent, tolerant, peace-loving human beings I have ever met. They have clung on to human decency, even when others have tried to torch their villages, massacring their Arakan people but they had shown their love of humanity.
But I also know there is a danger ahead if they continue to be massacred and genocide not only by the Bengali Rohingya, but by Biased Media Society as well as Corrupted so-called Human Rights organisation, and it is this: the danger of radicalization.
Since Rohingyas ‘terrorist’ are massacring Arakan Burmese Buddhist without any foundation or substance but fuelled by Religious extremists and greediness. But it could be a self-fulfilling prophecy. If the Arakans are persecuted by the regime, marginalized by the Burmese media, discriminated against and attacked by Islamic society and ignored by the international media, if radical Nationalist organizations tap into the seething despair among the Arakan people, and the Arakan feel they have nowhere else to turn, then it is possible that more Arakan could be radicalized. Having seen radical Nationalism in action in Russia, China, The North Korea and on the streets of London, to name just a few places, I fear for Burma if it is added to its woes. I am not talking about bombs and hijackings. I am talking about the ideology of political Nationalism.
Marginalization and protectlessness could be a breeding ground for nationalism. As Aung San Suu Kyi said in Oslo, “War is not the only arena where peace is done to death. Wherever suffering is ignored, there will be the seeds of conflict, for suffering degrades and embitters and enrages.”
Don’t misunderstand me. What I have said must not be used to justify attacks on the Arakan. Indeed, quite the opposite. To avoid provoking Arakan Nationalism, the whole people of Burma should work with moderate-minded Arakan whose only desire is to be protected their lives as others, to be treated with respect and dignity, to live in peace. One of Arakan several years ago described his vision beautifully to me when he described Burma as a garden, in which various different flowers grow – and the Arakan are one of those flowers and Rohingya is a snail trying to destroy the beautiful flower.
There are two myths about the Arakan that need to be dispelled. The first is the idea that Arakan simply hate Rohingya Bengali. Arakan do not like the Rohingya simply because these aliens Rohingya Bengali people forcefully robbing the Arakan lands by terrorizing such as torching fires on Arakan villages, massacring Buddhists and raping Arakan women.
The Arakan do not hate other people baselessly, but they won’t hesitate to defend their land, their family and their children. They just want to be protected as citizens of Burma. Even if they were attacked by Islamic Extremist Bengali Rohingya Terrorists, there are no proper armed forces to protect them in Buu Thee Taung, Yathe Taung and Maung Taw area of Arakan where Burma shares the border with Bengali Bangladesh. As long as Arakan are not protected them with assurance combined together with practical action, the terrorist threat of Rohingya Bengali Islamic Extremist won’t stop.
The second point is that Rohingya are part of Arakan. This is totally wrong. The so-called Rohingya are Bengali illegal immigrants. To prove this I have several reasons. The historical record is clear that the Rohingyas have never lived in northern Arakan for generations. Scholars can debate the precise record with civility and evidence and no one can doubt that they haven’t been there for generations.
I would like to highlight here that the son of the first President of Burma Sao Shwe Thaike, Harn Yaung Wai, established The Euro-Burma Office (EBO) in Brussels to sell Burma for money. He is one of the most responsible persons bringing alien Rohingya Bengali into Burma crisis. He had pledged to his Arab funders that if he cannot do Rohingya to belong to the Burma indigenous races, then he won’t live anymore and commit suicide.”
Burma’s first Prime Minister U Nu, who used the disputed term ‘Rohingya,’ in return for a few votes for his cling into power betrayed Burma creating long-time unresolved problems. It was only when 88-Generation Students Leaders take leading role, driven aliens Rohingya fake histories lies with their brave leadership and nationalist stand, that so-called Bengali Rohingya are exposed of with their barbaric cruelties, Islamic extremism and radical terrorism.
In Europe, the son of the first President Sao Shwe Thaike, Harn Yaung Wai, is promoting Rohingya Bengali terrorists as if part of Burma crisis by using his DVB news media as a propaganda tool in addition to appointing a story writer named Francis Wade for doing media propaganda for so-called Rohingya Bengali.
In United States, Aung Din and his group US Campaign for Burma (USCB) are selling Burma for money and betraying Arakan by portraying Arakan as the villains and so-called Rohingya Bengali as the victims but in reality it is other way round.
In UK, Mark Farmaner of Burma Campaign UK and his second wife Zoya Phan are fiercely promoting so-called Rohingya Bengali for money while their boyfriend, Benedict Rogers of Christian Solidarity Worldwide, is mimicking whatever Burma Campaign UK is telling lies and self-praise no-grace Maung Zar Ni is promoting so-called Rohingya as if they are his son-in-laws.
In Thai-Burma border, Soe Aung and Naing Aung of the Forum for Democracy in Burma (FDB) are supporting Bengali Rohingya after receiving funding under the name of human rights and equality.
In ASEAN, Soe Aung’s wife, Debbie Stothard, a Malaysian Chinese who knows nothing about Burma is blindly shouting for Rohingya by representing a group called ALSEAN comprising of her and Arrr herself. Their boss is Mark Farmaner of Burma Campaign UK (BCUK) and BCUK boss on Rohingya issue is Chris Lewa of Arakan Project. You can see clearly that this is coordinated and planned plot to colonise and Islamise Burma.
In reality, the BOSS of all Rohingya campaigners is Chris Lewa, the Director at the Arakan Project who has been lobbying for so-called Rohingya for decades. Even though Chris Lewa is seeking funding with the Arakan Project but that person has never ever been working for Arakan people but been working for Rohingya people under the name Arakan Project. This is depressing, isn’t it?
But for the good side, Ko Ko Gyi led 88-Generation students are giving strong and firm leadership to people of Burma and people around the world. The 88 Generation Students Leaders clearly stated clearly that “Rohingyas are absolutely not a nationality of Burma. We absolutely do not accept the interfering intrusion by the international community without their full understanding of the domestic affairs of Burma; we consider it to be a violation to the sovereignty of our country. We will not agree to, nor comply with, nor accept them as destitute refugees, nor placate and appease the pressures of the international community.
We would like to press here that a lot of the illegal immigrants can speak the language of the host country very fluently. Even though Rohingya are from Bangladesh, they can learn to speak Burmese fluently and can have Burmese names? Even in USA, a lot of the Burmese have English names. Bangladesh refuses them to give refuge Rohingya Bengali because they are practicing Stalin like policy — shoot to kill anyone who flees from battle front line. Even they are immigrants from Bangladesh, they do wish to stay in Burma and make it their homeland, because it is their way of colonization and Islamnization of Burma where they exploit Burma crisis, and terrorizing Arakan people.
Bengali Rohingyas flee severe poverty, extreme weather, land shortages and population booming of Bangladesh to places of prosperity and freedom – Burma, India and around the world. Do not forget that Bangladesh is ¼ the size of Burma and 4 times the size of population of Burma. Additions, these Rohingya Bengali Terrorists have the hidden agenda of Islamnization of Burma where they wishfully day dreaming of ruling Burma with strict Islamic Sharia laws.
Some British have told me that due to be a porous border, so they accept the facts that some who claim to be ‘Rohingya’ may be illegal Bengali immigrants. They went on argue to give Burmese citizenship to those who were born in Burma regardless. The fact is that Rohingya are illegal immigrants and they are asking for the ethnic rights which we cannot give. Even to be the citizen, we cannot give away Burmese citizenship easily to everyone whoever enters into Burma illegally. We must clearly, precisely and strictly define our citizenship laws and firmly implement immigration policies.
Burma’s Arakan crisis has born a new hero — Ko Ko Gyi. So it is time for everyone, in Burma and in the international community, who cares about universal human rights, human dignity and peace, who cares about national security and national interest to stand up and put an end to the violence, to stand up and to put an end on Rohingya Bengali terrorist attacks and begin the long hard road to reconstruction and reconciliation. Let that be the way forward, for Arakan, Kachin, Karen, Shan, Chin, Mon and Bamar, for government official and for Burmese citizen and foreign friends of Burma alike to be united under the leadership of Ko Ko Gyi working for better, prosper and safer Burma.
