planning for another episode
of Anti-Muslim riots
Those who can make you believe absurdities can make you commit atrocities. -Voltaire
Anti-Muslim Riots in Bago/Pegu
I hope you can share the following news which is the part of a deliberate plan of the Military Junta of Burma to use its long term policy of using religious hatred to create the political environment that may benefit the Military Junta of Burma to stay in Power Forever.
Please prevent hatred against any race or religion and create the unity and harmony among all the races and religions of the people of Burma.

Responsible Thai generals must be punished
for torturing and killing of Imam
BANGKOK, Jan 11 – The death of an imam while in army custody last year will present Thailand’s new government with its first test of whether it can deliver justice in the country’s troubled southern provinces.
On Christmas Day, a court in Narathiwat ruled that 56-year-old imam Yapa Kaseng was tortured and killed while being interrogated by soldiers in March.
The body of the Muslim community leader bore evidence of blunt force trauma, including rib fractures. His lungs were punctured, and his body was covered with bruises, and had abrasions on the back.
The death of the imam has gone down as a landmark abuse case. Rarely has anyone been held accountable for deaths in custody – a long-held complaint of locals as well as non-governmental organisations and watchdog groups like the New York-based Human Rights Watch (HRW).

OXFORD, England The government of Zimbabwe recently ordered foreign aid groups to halt their operations within its borders, thereby blocking the food aid that the United Nations funnels through such organizations from getting to the country’s starving people. Last month, the government of Burma issued a similar ban. Of course, when we say “the government of Zimbabwe,” what we really mean is President Robert Mugabe, just as “the government of Burma” these days means Senior Gen. Than Shwe, the leader of the ruling junta. In justifying the bans, each ruler harrumphed that outsiders should not be allowed to tell his nation what to do. But the real obstacle blocking international food aid is not the principle of national sovereignty; it is the insistence of dictators on being left to call their own shots. Mugabe decided that his citizens were better dead than fed; his nation had no part in the decision.

King-Obama’s dream comes true
Oh! Burma is still having Nightmares
Congratulations Mr Obama for fulfilling the dreams of King or Martin Luther King Jr. We hereby wish that you could benevolently choose Mrs Hillary Clinton to be your Deputy running mate in the coming election.
For Oh! Burma, (or OLD BURMA) we are continuing the unfinished nightmare started by General Ne Win. We hope that there would be a blessing in disguise for our Burmese people. The present cyclone victims’ continuous suffering, SPDC’s blockage, hijacking and siphoning of the International aids combined with economic hardship because of SPDC’s mismanagement and global inflation/recession would fuel the dissatisfaction of Burmese and lead to another final revolt against SPDC and Myanm Military rulers.
As Mr McCain is the long time friend of Burma and we trusted he would be willing to help Burmese people if we need, we wish to request Mr Obama not to look at the other side and pretend you never see the plight and sufferings of Burmese people. Please don’t leave us, Burma alone Mr Obama.

There is no place in the world where politicians are as superstitious as they are in Burma and its Asian neighbors. They use the services of astrologists, monks and miracle-healers. Nevertheless, religious groups have repeatedly contributed to the collapse of despots and the tyrant dictators don’t flinch at the idea of killing monks.
At some point in the summer of 2005, the head of Burma’s junta, Than Shwe, called in his chief astrologer. The general had followed the advice of the fortune teller a few months previously and built a new capital in the highlands. He had been told this was the only way to hold onto power. Now the general wanted to know what would be the best date to make the move. Continue reading
