Gibraltar or Jebel Tariq or Tariq’s mountain 

(Moroccan Berber general, Tariq ibn Ziyad)

The name “Gibraltar” looks back to an older history that dwarfs these proud 300 years of British rule. The Moors ruled here for well nigh 600 years followed by 200 years of Spanish rule. Gibraltar is actually an Arabic word, a corruption of Jebel Tariq –¬ Tariq’s mountain. It is named after a young Moroccan Berber general, Tariq ibn Ziyad, who had been placed in command of the garrison at Tangier ¬- a new military outpost of the vast Empire of the Muslim Caliphs that then stretched from the Atlantic shore to the banks of the Indus.

Beware of Agent-Provocator Mercenary Cyber-troopers misusing my name, San Oo Aung

Beware of Agent-Provocator  Mercenary Cyber-troopers

misusing my name, San Oo Aung 

Dear Democratic friends and Comrades, struggling for the second Independence of the Secular Democratic Union of Burma/Myanmar, from all the religious groups, including Ethnic Minorities and Religious Minorities_

There are Agent-Provocator  Mercenary Cyber-troopers who are misusing the well-known Burmese Democracy Activists including Sit Mone and me, San Oo Aung to discredit us and wishing to incite misunderstandings amongst us.

Sit Mone and me, San Oo Aung are not writing in any forum nor any comments columns of Burmese/Myanmar online magazines, journals, nor any publications. I even stopped writing and contributing to Burma Digest as there appeared the racial discriminations against Burmese Muslims with a disguise of secularism. The Editorial Comrades including Dr Tay Za and I are still good friends, we understand and respect each other’s stand of whether or not wishing to maintain and observe a pure secularism.

Although I write from my POV as a Muslim, I always respected other religions and races and never attack other races or religions.

Dr. San Oo Aung
