Burmese Buddhists living in the Rakhine State view themselves as ‘ethic’ inhabitants of Myanmar, and state that Islamic militants regularly attack their villages and Buddhist temples, carrying-out acts of rape, torture and murder. The point of this activity is to ‘cleanse’ the area of the ethnic Burmese and their Buddhist culture.
Like the Noble Peace Prize winner – the 14th Dalai Lama – who continuously advocates violence in China whilst calling for peace in the West, Aung San Suu Kyi – also a Noble Prize Winner – appears to be condoning governmental and ethnic violence against the Rohingya minority in Myanmar, whilst ‘ignoring’ calls from both within and outside of Myanmar, condemning that country’s treatment of the Rohingya.
I have been astonished (on more than one occasion). to witness intelligent Indian people that I know on social media – trumpeting BJP anti-China racism – and repeating news stories that are obviously ‘false’! Much of the anti-China film footage from these fake news stories is filmed in the US colony of Taiwan – where the Chinese language dialogue is different to that expected on the Mainland, the uniforms of the military are inaccurate, and the behaviour of the officials (or soldiers shown) is distinctly ‘non-Chinese’!
The fact of the matter is that up until 1949, Tibet was a primitive and backward feudalistic society, run by a highly corrupt and oppressive priestly class that had developed a distorted version of Buddhism to justify their rule. Tibet could hardly have been a place of advanced technological culture when it practised the judicial punishment of scooping-out eyes with a spoon!
In September 1948, Israeli militants murdered the UN Ambassador to Israel – Folke Bernadotte – no action was taken against Israel. During 1956, Israel recruited a number of Jewish agents in Egypt and authorised a terrorist campaign of bombing against British and US leisure and business targets (the ‘Lavon Affair’) – no action was taken against Israel.
In 1989, Shoko Asahara gave the Dalai Lama one thousand US dollars, in return, the Dalai Lama gave the Japanese a “diploma” and a letter of recommendation. In this letter, addressed to the competent authorities of Tokyo, the Dalai Lama called Shoko Asahara “a very capable spiritual mentor” and defined the sect “Aum Shinrikyo” as “a legitimate distributor of Mahayana Buddhism and a sect that can push the public toward kindness.” The Dalai Lama in the letter even asked the relevant Tokyo authorities “to release the Aum Shinrikyo sect from taxation.”
