    This series of programs by PBS are nothing but a one sided yellow journalism sponsored by Al Qaeda, Boko Haram and ISIS supporting organizations and countries. Forty Rights and others appearing in the interview ane sponsored by the same terrorist organizations.

    One cannot but notice the disconnect between this PBS program and the current world news related to Islamic violence and jihadi terror: Islamist Boko Haram kidnapping more that 200 school girls and forcing them to sex slaves, ISIS calling Christians and Yazidis to “covert to Islam or be killed, etc. Thus muslims are also engaged in jihadi terror in Myanmar and have funded and created “human rights” groups and some in the liberal media to speak for them.

    It is an undisputed fact that muslims in Myanmar have been engaged in jihadi terror since 1940s. In early 1942, as the Japanese were advancing towards Arakan, the British formed a battalion of Muslims – called the Bengali V Force – and gave them weapons. As the British suddenly retreated – the Bengali Muslims quickly used the weapons – not against the Japanese -but they used them to slaughter thousands and thousands of Buddhists and burned down all of the Buddhist villages, pagodas, temples and monasteries in the Maungdaw and Buthidaung areas. About 30,000 Rakhine Buddhist were killed in this absolute genocide, hundreds of villages were burned down, and around 100,000 Rakhine Buddhists were ethnically cleansed from their ancestral lands. By late 1942 the whole Maungdaw-Buthidaung region was firmly in the hands of Bengali Muslims – who were now well armed with abandoned Japanese and British weapons. Active Islamic Terrorism and de facto ethnic cleansing continues to this day in the area.

    During neighboring muslim Bangladesh independence war in 1970-71, when 3 million Bangladeshis were killed by the Pakistan army, the indigenous Buddhist Rakhine people of Myanmar hosted over 500,000 refugees without the support from international organizations. Let no one accuse the indigenous Rakhine people for lack of compassion. Now the muslims are the majority is some areas and instead of being thankful and loyal to the host nation (Myanmar) and the indigenous people, they are now engaged in jihad (arson, murder, rape) in an attempt to establish a new country called “Newrosia” with the help from Bangladesh and other Islamic worldwide terrorist organizations and countries.

    I care. And I am Jewish. These terrorists and Islamists are not following Islam. They follow their own made up form of Islam that has nothing to do with the true religion. They want power—–complete power——and they are working for it thru bastardizing Islam.

    Dear R & E,

    Thank you for very well informed, objective and important report about discrimination against the Rohingya people of Myanmar. This was a very important report to share with the American public. I wish more organizations report religion in an edifying, and objective and non-dispassionate manner.
