OIC Considering Military Action against Burma?

(News articles from Times of Ummah, BikyaMasr and Pakistan DefenceForum.)

DJIBOUTI – The Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) called Saturday for the international community to protect Muslims in Myanmar’s unrest-hit Rakhine state from genocide as US President Barack Obama readied for a landmark trip to the country.

“We expect the United States to convey a strong message to the government of Burma so they protect that minority, what is going on there is a genocide,” said Djibouti’s Foreign Minister Mahmoud Ali Youssouf, who is the acting chairman of the OIC.
“We are telling things how they are, we believe that the United States and other countries should act quickly to save that minority which is submitted to an oppressive policy and a genocide,” he said at the end of an OIC foreign ministers’ meeting in Djibouti.

Iron Ladies Pissed off the Ministers and Got Napalmed?

(This post includes the translated script and the video of meeting between the anti-Chinese Copper Mine protesters and government ministers led by U Aung Min on 25 November.)

Thwe Thwe Win the so-called Iron-Lady, now
behind bars in notorious Insein Prison for
illegal occupation of private properties and
obstruction of justice.
The so-called Iron Ladies, as labelled by New York Times’s Thomas Fuller in his articles, were now behind bars in Burma’s notorious Insein Prison after being teargased, firebombed, and arrested at the Chinese Copper Mine site near Monywa in Middle Burma.

And more than 100 Buddhist monks and farmers protesting at the mine site were injured or burned. Some were so badly burnt they ended up at nearby Monywa and Mandalay hospitals.

So, after showing extraordinary restraint last few months, what triggered President Thein Sein’s so-called reformist government to unleash a brutal strike against the anti-Chinese copper mine protesters led by the so-called Iron Ladies, a couple of landless peasants from the villages destroyed by the Chinese Copper Mine?

Police Napalmed Anti-Chinese Copper Mine Protesters?

One of the protesters' camps burning brightly.
Beginning at 3 in the early morning of November 29 more than 500 Burmese Police had charged at the six illegal protesting camps inside the Letpandaung Copper Mine area and broken the camps and arrested the protesters by using overwhelming force backed by fire engines and teargas.

Burma’s Interior Ministry has earlier issued an ultimatum to the protesting monks and local farmers to fold their camps and leave the area by the midnight of 27 November, but the more than a thousand protestors had refused to follow the government order.

Two Iron Ladies Battle Chinese Copper Mine in Burma

Two so-called Iron Ladies at the mine site. They want the
Chinese copper mine completely shut down.
WETHMAY, MYANMAR — They were trailed by plainclothes police officers and called “cows” by government officials. They spent four nights in prison until a public outcry prompted their release.

Aye Net and Thwe Thwe Win, the daughters of farmers whose education stopped at primary school, have rocketed to national prominence in Myanmar for their defiance of a copper mining project run by the powerful Myanmar military and its partner, a subsidiary of a Chinese arms manufacturer.

“Whatever pressure they put on us, we won’t give up,” Ms. Thwe Thwe Win said in an interview in her village on the edge of the copper mine. “I want them to shut this project down completely.”

Islamic Republic of Belgium: A Milestone of Eurabia?

(This post is the truly-alarming story of Belgium being swallowed by Muslim immigrants.)

Modern History of Belgium.
I knew almost nothing about Belgium till I did my master degree in 1985-86 and ended up with a blue-eyed blond-haired Belgian professor as my thesis advisor.

From him I learned about beautiful Belgium and her French-speaking Wallonian people and Dutch-speaking Flemish people and of course the truly European Capital the Brussels. That was more than twenty five years ago.

Back then I would be truly shocked if someone told me that in short 20 years time the 40% of Brussels’s population would eventually be recent Muslim immigrants demanding the truly-democratic Belgium be drastically turned into an Islamic republic like that truly-repressive Iran the pariah of the civilized world and the utter-degrader of women.

But that is what exactly happening in Belgium right now if one believes what conservative Europeans are now loudly and alarmingly claiming like in the following article from the conservative Gatestone Institute and the following one from BREITBART.

Monywa Copper Mine Protests Turn Anti-China Protest?

(Direct translation of news articles from various news sources.)

Protesting farmers stopping the mining trucks.
The ongoing protests against the largest mining project in Burma has been turned into anti-China and anti-Military protests by leftwing student union activists and local peasant activists with the support of foreign-NGOs-backed watermelon-environmentalists.

The mining project is the Letpandoung Copper Mine near Monywa in Sagaing Division of middle Burma. The project is owned and operated by Myanmar-Wan Bao Mining Company the joint venture between Chinese Government-owned Wan Bao Mining and Burma Military-owned Myanmar Economic Holdings widely known in Burma as Oo-Baing.

Massacre of Bengali-Muslims by Yakhine Buddhists?

A Bengali-Muslim survivor of Buddhist massacre (2012).
On a hot Sunday night in a remote Myanmar village, Tun Naing punched his wife and unleashed hell. She wanted rice for their three children. He said they couldn't afford it. Apartheid-like restrictions had prevented Muslims like Tun Naing from working for Buddhists here in Rakhine State along Myanmar's western border, costing the 38-year-old metalworker his job.
The couple screamed at each other. Tun Naing threw another punch. Neighbors joined in the row. The commotion stirred up ethnic Rakhine Buddhists in the next village, who began shouting anti-Muslim slurs. Relations between the two communities were already so tense that six soldiers were stationed nearby. Tun Naing's village was soon besieged by hundreds of Rakhines. And Myanmar was plunged into a week of sectarian violence that by official count claimed 89 lives, its worst in decades.

Saudi Arabia Beheading the Buddhists!

Beheading a Buddhist in Saudi Arabia (2010).
A Sri Lankan youth employed as a domestic aid has been arrested in Saudi Arabia for worshiping a statue of the Buddha, which is considered an offence according to Shariah law.
According to the Bodu Bala Senaa, the youth bearing passport no. 2353715 identified as Premanath Pereralage Thungasiri has been arrested by Umulmahami Police, which is a grave situation.
The organisation states that information has been received regarding a plan that is underway to behead a Sri Lankan youth employed in domestic service in Saudi Arabia. Although a complaint has been lodged at the Foreign Employment Bureau, Battaramulla, under complaint no: CN/158/1205, so far no action has been taken.

Saudi-Arabian Lies about Buddhists of Burma

A Liar and  a Saudi Dr. Abdul Rahman Al-Zuhayyan.
To most Saudis, Burma was almost an unknown country, until the news of massacre of Rohingya Muslims came out. In their vacation and on the street, Saudis run across men in orange attire, who are soft spoken and appear to be gentle and peaceful, with pamphlets and flyers in their hands about Buddhism, giving them away to pedestrians.

These Buddhists appear as if they cannot hurt a fly, while the pictures coming out from Burma are very graphic and heart wrenching. 

Children being grilled naked and alive; corpses amputated with hatchets; and dead bodies of men, women and children, young and old scattered everywhere.

Bangladeshis Calling China to Invade Burma?

Upper Burma has seen a demographic shift resulting from the recent immigration of many Mainland Chinese to Mandalay Region, Shan, and Kachin States. Ethnic Chinese now constitute an estimated 30 to 40% of Mandalay's population.

Huge swaths of land in city centre left vacant by the fires were later purchased, mostly by the ethnic Chinese, many of whom were recent immigrants from Yunnan. The Chinese influx accelerated after the current military government came to power in 1988.

Obama’s Speech at Rangoon University

PRESIDENT OBAMA:  Thank you.  (Applause.)  Myanmar Naingan, Mingalaba!  (Laughter and applause.)  I am very honored to be here at this university and to be the first President of the United States of America to visit your country. 
I came here because of the importance of your country.  You live at the crossroads of East and South Asia.  You border the most populated nations on the planet.  You have a history that reaches back thousands of years, and the ability to help determine the destiny of the fastest growing region of the world.
I came here because of the beauty and diversity of your country.  I have seen just earlier today the golden stupa of Shwedagon, and have been moved by the timeless idea of metta -- the belief that our time on this Earth can be defined by tolerance and by love.  And I know this land reaches from the crowded neighborhoods of this old city to the homes of more than 60,000 villages; from the peaks of the Himalayas, the forests of Karen State, to the banks of the Irrawady River.

Burma’s Rate Cut Looming as Carry Trades Explode!

Mountain of Burmese Kyats.
Burma’s inflation is only 2.82% but the Union Bank’s benchmark interest rate is 10%. And the businesses and banking experts and economists are calling the Union Bank to reduce the benchmark rate as many businesses are facing tough environment for their long term survival amidst explosively growing carry trades.

According to the banking experts current inflation rate is much less than 3% and Burma desperately needs to reduce the high interest rates. Dr. Khin San Yee, the deputy union minister for the National Planning and Economic Development Ministry, said on November 5 that the inflation rate on 2011-2012 financial year was only 2.82%.

I Wish I Could Use My Middle Name (Hussein)?

(In the evening of October 18, 2012 at the 67th Alfred E. Smith Foundation Dinner in New York the President of United States Barrack Hussein Obama pulled a funny joke on himself. And when I read the following article “In Visit to Myanmar, Obama Will See a Nation That Shaped His Grandfather” by Peter Baker in The New York Times on November 17, 2012 about Obama’s coming visit to Burma his self-inflicted joke immediately came into my mind.)

President Obama, Archbishop Dolan, and Mitt Romeny.
WASHINGTON — When President Obama lands in Yangon on Monday, he will be the first sitting American president to visit the country now known as Myanmar. But he will not be the first Obama to visit.

The president’s Kenyan grandfather, Hussein Onyango Obama, spent part of World War II in what was then called Burma as a cook for a British Army captain. Although details are sometimes debated, the elder Mr. Obama’s Asian experience proved formative just as his grandson’s time growing up in Indonesia did decades later.

Bangladesh Under Water Soon?

Will Bangladesh be under water by 2100?
Reading James Hansen's book, Storms of my grandchildren; the truth about the coming climate catastrophe and our last chance to save humanity (published by Bloomsbury, 2009) is quite an experience. 

Dr Hansen is no scaremongering quack, but one of the world's most respected climate scientists and former director of NASA's Goddard Institute for Space Studies in New York.

His book predicts the end of Bangladesh through global warming.

The average educated citizen could perhaps be forgiven for thinking that global warming is a relatively minor problem; how can individuals take it seriously when the media and the world's governments ignore it?

As Dr. Hansen elaborates, that is because the supposedly democratic systems of government now commonplace have simply resulted in the best governments that money can buy. It turns out that the oil, gas and coal industries have more than enough money to bend practically any government to their will with promises of cheap energy, industrial growth and jobs.

First Anglo-Burmese War (1824-1826) – Part 12

(Chapter XII of Narrative of The Burmese War by Major John Snodgrass, British Army, the Military Secretary to the Commander of the British expeditionary force and the Assistant Political Agent in Ava.)

British March from Rangoon to Danubyu (February 1825).
The retreat of Maha Bandoola left the field completely open in our front. Not a man in arms remained in the neighbourhood of Rangoon; and numbers of the people, at length released from military restraint, and convinced of the superiority of the British troops over their countrymen, and of their clemency and kindness to the vanquished, poured daily into Rangoon: even those who had borne arms gave up the cause as hopeless, and returned with their families from a life of suffering and oppression, to the blessings of quiet and undisturbed domestic happiness.

Hill O-Seven: Thai-Burma Border Battle (2001)?

(This post is direct translation of articles from the Myanmar Military Site.)

Hill O-Seven is a low non-descript hill straddling the disputed borderline between Thailand and Burma. Approximately at 2,500 yards south-east from the Hill O-7 is the bustling Thai border town called Mae Sai.

The low hill, near Pone-htun Ward of Tarchileik the Burmese border town opposite the Thai border town Mae Sai, was designated as the Objective-7 during the Burmese military offensive to drive the Koumington (White-Chinese) forces out of Burma during the 1950s. Since then the hill has been known as Hill O-7 and as an important high-ground overlooking both Tarchileik and Mae Sai Burma army has always taken a strong defensive position on the hill.
