Between October 27 and November 7, two overloaded Malaysia-bound boats, which had sailed from Bangladesh with 245 people aboard, sank near the Bangladesh port of Teknaf.
International media reported that the people on the boats had been Rohingya refugees. But after interrogating 28 people who were rescued, Bangladeshi security agents found that almost half the people were Bangladeshis, not ethnic Rohingyas.

|Judge Ray Finkelstein (2012).|
Its 470-page report, written by inquiry chairman Ray Finkelstein and released on Friday, concludes Australia needs a mandatory ''News Media Council'' that would have coercive powers to regulate what it deems is ''fairness'', ''accuracy'', ''balance'', and ''quality'' in the press.
This new independent regulator would have power to compel newspapers to publish responses from people who feel aggrieved. And it would have the power to censor: it could, for instance, force media organisations to delete stories from their websites that regulators feel aren't up to standard.

|Australian Opposition Leader the|
Honorable Tony Abbott MP.
I don’t know what she and her ALP lefties are trying to pull but I think that election date almost 8 months away was sinister as the present Hung Parliament has been dangerously hanging on with the support of forever-wavering Independent MPs for a while now.
I am no constitutional law expert, so I don’t know when exactly the 2013 general elections will be as Ms. Gillard has a lot of options in her hands for deciding the exact date as long as that date is before or on that Saturday September 14, 2013.
And following is the extracts from the West Australian newspaper’s article “Voters Ignore Abbott’s Faults” on the results of Polls conducted at last weekend.
“Voters are so fed up with Federal Labor they are prepared to hand Tony Abbott the keys to The Lodge even though they don't think he'd be good for jobs, interest rates, the environment or the cost of living.

(Since bloody John Howard took away guns from Australians just after 1996 Port Arthur Massacre Australian society is like a herd of sheep waiting to be slaughtered. Now Julia Gillard's Socialists are quietly opening the borders and letting thousands and thousands of Muslims with disturbingly questionable characters boat into Australia. The butchers have arrived! Hasn't the slaughter started? The young white girl from Macquarie University was just lucky to be still alive. First part of this post is direct from The Australian News on 23 February 2013.)
|Macquarie Uni's Student Village in Sydney.|
EIGHTY asylum seekers will be questioned by police hunting a man over an alleged sexual assault on a female student at Macquarie University as concerns are raised over housing asylum seekers in student accommodation.
Students were furious yesterday after the alleged early morning sexual assault on the student, 20, in the university's accommodation village, which also has been housing asylum seekers in adjacent units when student demand dries up.

“Myanmar’s reforms are mostly ‘cosmetic’ as the army still retains significant control over the country’s politics. However, the cosmetic changes can have unintended consequences, as witnessed in the case of Mikhail Gorbachev’s Glasnost & Perestroika in the erstwhile Soviet Union,” said Bertil Lintner, author of many books on Myanmar.

|No Quintana posters from Burma.|
The notorious Shan-Buddhist traitor Harn Yawnghwe (and his EBO - Euro Burma Office in Brussels) is known to have a five years sponsorship deal worth 50 million Euros from Saudi Arabia through OIC to put concerted political pressure on Burma (Thein Sein and Aung San Suu Kyi) to rid of Burma’s 1982 Citizenship Act just to give Burmese citizenship to all illegal Bengali-Muslims (so-called Rohingyas almost a million) by the Bangladeshi border and then some millions more Bengali-Muslims from Eastern Bangladesh by the year 2016-17.

(This post exposing the so-called journalist Francis Wade - a former DVB staffer now writing anti-Burmese-Buddhist and pro-Bengali-Muslim rants full-time for Asian Correspondent and Islamic TV Al-jazebra - is partly based on David Obama’s critical article from the blog “Democracy for Burma” posted on 22 June 2012.)
|Francis Wade (DVB).|
His anti-Burmese-Buddhist (and) pro-Bengali-Muslim rants are the favourite fables of Qatar-based Islamic media organization Aljazebra (the unofficial mouthpiece of Al-Qaeda Islamist terrorists) and that slanted internet-media-site called The Asian Correspondent.
Following list of slanted news articles are just some of his totally-unbalanced articles (and their respective publishing dates) on that biased-media-site Asian Correspondent against our country Burma and our people the Buddhist-Burmese last few years.

(To cloak their terrorist operations with seemingly-legitimate Islamic political activities one and half a dozen Rohingya militant groups have formed the ARU - Arakan Rohingya Union - with the initiatives of Shan traitor Harn Yawnghwe’s EBO - Euro Burma Office in Brussels - and the International Islamic Mafia OIC - Organization of Islamic Cooperation - at the OIC’s Jeddah HQ in 30-31 May 2011.)
So nothing happened as planned by the Shans. Simultaneously gun-fire began at the bridgehead mixed with the sound of drums and gongs and Shans shouting "Wat Lae! Wat Lae!" which was similar in meaning to the cry of dacoits farther south who would shout, "Ai sua aow wah!" when making an attack. Apart from firing their rifles the Shans shot off fire crackers to frighten people in the city.

The demonstrators took guests' tickets and pushed them to the ground. "What are you doing? This is a democratic society. We're allowed to go in there," one guest told the protesters. Mounted police then moved in, forming a line to try to stop the scuffles.
The world's biggest miner posted a 58 per cent fall in first-half net profit to $US4.24 billion, while the company's underlying earnings - which excludes one-off write-downs and gains - dropped 43.4 per cent to $US5.68 billion.
The result came in broadly in line with average analyst forecasts of a $US5.72 billion underlying profit, according to a Bloomberg survey. BHP Billiton's revenue fell 14 per cent compared to the same period a year earlier to $US32.2 billion, as commodity prices generally softened.

Mr. Steiner then collected two pieces with the inscription and forwarded them to the Society. He then suggested that the small area where the Captain actually fell, 30 meters from the road should be registered and that a small memorial stone should be placed there. He asked the Society to bear the expenses. Someone financed a small durable memorial, which is still there today.
Recently a foreign friend told Mr. Torben Poulsen, a Dane residing in Chiang Mai, that the inscription on the obelisk of Hans Marqvard Jensen was no longer readable and the stone was dirty. He asked the Embassy for support to renovate the memorial, but in the end found that all he needed was some scouring powder and a bit of elbow grease. He then did the job himself.

The Muslim-Bengali woman was reported to have insulted the local Buddhist-Burmese by yelling aloud that they Muslim-Bengalis were building their own mosque since they had a lot of foreign money (from the likes of Saudi Arabia and OIC) and the Buddhist-Burmese beggars were just overly jealous.

Leonowens accused him of failing in his duty when he did not leave Chiang Mai during the Shan rebellion. He was a good organiser and the driving force behind the C.G.C. the Chiang Mai foreign cemetery and the Queen Victoria Memorial. Died 1917.

|Shans in Northern Thailand.|
Totally unlike their cousins in Burma where they have been waging war after war against the Burmese majority to keep their racial and cultural identity intact. And even for a separate independent Shan nation as their ultimate political goal seemingly backed by the Thais.
I’ve always wondered what’d happened to the Shans in Thailand for them to be contented with just being affectionately called Thai-Yai (Big Thai) while completely surrendering their ethnic identity to the Thai majority. Then I discovered from my favourite blog the New Mandala about the 1902 Shan Rebellion and how the poor Shans in Thailand were brutally Siamized at the beginning of 20th century.

The world's third biggest mining company reported a $US3 billion loss for 2012, down from a $US5.8 billion profit the year before. However, the loss was due to $US14.4 billion worth of write-downs in the value of its aluminium and coal businesses.
Excluding those one-off write-downs, Rio recorded underlying earnings of $US9.3 billion, which is down 40 per cent on last year's underlying result, but slightly ahead of average analyst expectations which centred on a result around $US9.1 billion.

The teachers were sacked last year by the West Croydon school, which issued a warning to all female teachers - Muslim and non-Muslim - to wear a hijab head scarf or face the sack. One of the teachers has taken a case of unfair dismissal to the civil court while the other's claim is being heard by Fair Work Australia.
School principal Kadir Emniyet yesterday defended the school's policy, which he said he had discussed with all 42 teachers. He said "90 per cent of them are happy to adhere to the policy".

According to him the first batch of militia training was given in May last year mainly to the KIA returnees, who were forcefully-recruited by KIA Kachins against their will, and the Tarlawgyi village people militia has been formed with them as the core members.
The village militia was further strengthened by more youths who attended the second batch of militia training given by the army’s IB-37 from Myitkyinar in January this year.

|Gaza University students before the new dress code.|
After being characterized for more than 20 years by political and intellectual diversity, female students are now bound to adhere to a strict dress code, including an abaya (cloak) and hijab (veil) while on campus. The decision has caused uproar and sparked heated debates.
Dr. Naaman Ulwan, an independent academic and advisor for cultural affairs at Al Aqsa University, revealed to Al-Monitor that he did not know about the decision ahead of its announcement on Jan. 26, 2013. Ulwan affirmed that even if such decision was approved, it certainly complies with the conservative society of Gaza that does not tolerate attire showing women’s curves.

Above statement was the common theme of recent media headlines about Burma’s celebrated debt relief as an Obama’s reward for Thein Sein’s political and economic reforms in Burma. Following was another common statement describing that so-called debt relief by the World Bank and ADB.
“The former pariah state also cleared its arrears to the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank (ADB) with the help of loans from Japan, removing another key hurdle for the resumption of international aid.”

Worse yet, the police took no action against the attackers, telling the Christians they were the problem, instead of the mob who engaged in numerous acts of assault and battery.
The 22-minute video shows a number of attacks made against the Christians by adults and children repeatedly hurling profanities in addition to rocks, garbage, water bottles and crates.

The store assistant had just got off the bus and was talking to her boyfriend Ato Owede, 23, on her phone when she felt someone walking behind her in Lodge Avenue in Dagenham at around 12.40am.
She said:“I’d been working a late shift and was talking to my boyfriend about what we were going to do for New Year when I saw this Muslim woman wearing a niqab covering her face. I thought it was a bit strange at that time of night, but she didn’t say anything and I kept on walking.

I’d just graduated from RIT (Rangoon Institute of Technology) as a brand spanking new mechanical engineer and like most of my graduating classmates I tried to become a marine-engineer hoping that eventually I would end up on a sea-going ship outside Burma.
At that time in Burma under Evil Ne Win’s despotic Socialist-military rule the dollar was the king and anyone who could earn USD was top of the society that had been at dogs for nearly 20 years on the Socialist road to ruin.
