Leaving behind her husband - and hometown of Mandalay - Khin and her young daughter travelled with her neighbour to the eastern city of Muse. The next morning she saw him arrange for a temporary passport - which struck her as strange.
They then drove to the border of China where Khin says a Chinese man paid her neighbour 20,000 MMK. (AUD 23.50). I ask Khin if she believes her neighbour intentionally sold her as a bride. "Yes, but I had no idea at the time," she tells me via a translator over the phone.
According to the International Labour Office, victims of trafficking are often approached with false offers of a job and are then redirected into situations of sexual or labour exploitation.
|A young Swedish rape-victim.|
A light sentence, just recently, has been handed out to six teenage boys, aged 15 to 17, from the diverse Muslim community in Sweden for raping a 15-year-old (white Swedish) girl in a north-western suburb of Stockholm in March. Five of the teens were found guilty of aggravated rape by the Solna District Court, with the sixth guilty of attempted aggravated rape.
Five of the boys were sentenced to over one hundred hours of community service each, and have been ordered to pay 55,000 kronor ($8,500) each, in damages to the victim. The punishment given to the sixth, if any, was not reported.
The reason given for the light punishment was the fact that the boys are minors. The Swedish court also concluded that the boys had already been already punished to some extent by having their pictures and their personal details exposed on the internet.

Tommy Robinson had shouted, "You are enforcing Sharia law", at officers who held him on suspicion of obstructing police as he tried to enter the London borough of Tower Hamlets.
The EDL had previously announced plans to walk through part of the capital before gathering outside Woolwich Barracks, near where Drummer Rigby was hacked to death in broad daylight .
But the Metropolitan Police put conditions on the march which demanded that it ended at Old Palace Yard, opposite the House of Lords.
As well as planning to lay flowers in memory of Drummer Rigby, Mr Robinson and EDL co-leader Kevin Carroll, who was also arrested, were walking to raise money for a young girl fighting cancer.
Cairo - Thousands of supporters of Egyptian President Mohamed Morsi have gathered here as political violence continued to worsen across the country, with at least two people killed in the northern city of Alexandria.
Clashes broke out on Friday between pro- and anti-government protesters in Alexandria's Sidi Gaber neighbourhood, outside the local headquarters of the Muslim Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party (FJP).
Local health officials said that two people were killed, one of them an American citizen who was stabbed, the other an Egyptian who died from gunshot wounds. Police said the American was taking photographs of the fighting, but was not believed to be a journalist. Protesters also set fire to the party's offices.

FORGET Clover Moore (Pro Gay/Lesbian Mayor of Sydney who did cancel the Christmas celebrations that year in the Sydney City) as the Grinch of Sydney's Christmas.
The "Lions of Lebanon" with their Glock pistols and Molotov cocktails have put her to shame this holy season. While the NSW police lock down entire beachfront suburbs, instruct stores to stop selling baseball bats, and apply the full force of the law to pasty-faced nerds with a taste for Nazi literature, they continue to cower from the real hardmen, the Lebanese-Australian (Muslim) criminal gangs of Sydney's south-west who have ruled the roost in this city for at least a decade and now number in their thousands.

(Compilation of translated-posts from various Burmese blogs this week.)
Australian Labor MP Janelle Saffin, the Chairman of Australia-Myanmar Parliamentary Committee, told the Voice Journal in her interview that the Australian Government will withdraw all Australian aids to Burma if Burma does not amend the Section-59(F) of Burma’s 2008 Constitution well before the coming 2015 General Elections in Burma.
Apparently that Constitutional Act’s Section-59(F) is basically blocking Aung San Suu Kyi from ever becoming the president of Myanmar, and thus the chief-meddler-in-Burmese-politics and Australian Socialist politician Janelle Saffin is issuing her ultimatum to Burma. Let ASSK be the Socialist president of Burma or we’ll stop giving Burma money, period.
So my question is what exactly is Section-59(F) of Burma’s 2008 Constitution?

at Ma-soe-yein Monastery in Mandalay.
Dear Sister Ms. Hannah Beech,
I nationalist Buddhist Monk U Wira Thu is writing this letter to you. When you came to us, we had treated you and your photographer with hospitability. You know we had done our best to help you and your photographer to get what you want.
We had helped you only with the good volition that we want the media and correspondents get the true facts. We helped you because we respect western liberal media like Times and we expected you wouldn’t make lies to the people of the world.
And we did not think you would break ethic and responsibility of media. Now I know that you are the worst visitors we have ever had.
I could not see the hatred behind your smiles. I could not see your ruthlessness under your tender actions. I could not see your deceit under your sweet words it is like blade covered by honey.

Mr Rudd won a party-room ballot by a margin of 57-45. Anthony Albanese has been elected deputy leader after facing off with Labor elder and Rudd backer Simon Crean. The ballot was the culmination of a three-year internal war within the Labor party, after Ms Gillard toppled Mr Rudd for the leadership in June 2010.
It was Mr Rudd's third attempt to re-take the top job, after an unsuccessful coup in February 2012 and an aborted leadership tilt in March this year.
State television announced Tuesday that the decision was made "in order to prevent the recurrence of racial and religious riots."
The magazine's cover carries a photo of a Buddhist monk, Wirathu, with the words "The Face of Buddhist Terror." Wirathu is a leader of a radical movement of monks that preaches that the country's small Muslim minority threatens racial purity and national security. He has called for restrictions on marriages between Buddhists and Muslims, and for boycotts of Muslim-owned businesses.
Nearly 250 people have died and tens of thousands, mostly Muslims, have fled their homes in religious violence in the past year. Buddhist mobs have marched through villages burning houses and mosques and brandishing machetes and clubs.

Nakoula is an Egyptian-born US citizen with a history of drug and financial crimes. In 2010 he was sentenced to 21 months in jail and 5 years probation for bank fraud. The terms of his probation were that he was not allowed to use any alias names or use the Internet without prior approval from his probation officers.
Merely weeks after his release from jail in June 2011, Nakoula posted a film trailer on YouTube. It was a 14-minute video clip promoting the film “Innocence of Muslims.” The video was totally un-noteworthy and of unprofessional quality. Left in English, it might have gone unnoticed.
Yet, a few months later, the film was translated into Arabic and went viral over the Internet. It inflamed Muslims worldwide, and sparked protests and riots for its content depicting the Muslim Prophet Mohammad as a child molester, womanizer, and religious fraud.

From 1948 to 1988 our Burmese army had been the extremely-rare Socialist Army supporting the stupid leftwing Socialist dictatorship of late General Ne Win – May his soul burn in hell to eternity.
But the devastating result of that Socialist dictatorship – itself the legacy of late General Aung San and his Socialist comrades - has basically reshaped the army into a patriotic-rightwing conservative and nationalist army since that failed 1988 Uprising.
Withstanding massive international pressure including the devastating international sanctions last 20 odd years Burmese Army has gradually been changing its direction from old-Left to new-Right and now Burma is a so-called semi-democratic state ruled by so-called quasi-civilian government.

|Burmese Win Zaw Oo is 8-4 and growing.|
Incredible 8-ft 4-inches tall 36 year-old man in Burma could be the tallest human alive in the whole wide world. His name is Win Zaw Oo and he is from Htone Pouk Chai a small village about 15 miles from the Natmouk town of Magwe Division in Middle Burma.
His parents are U Aung Hla and Daw Mouk Tin. He had to leave school at only fourth grade in 1988 and by the age of 15 he had to go work in Rangoon as his parents were not really well of economically.
He used to work in a yogurt shop in the 24th street of Latha Township. At that time his height was just normal. One particular thing about him is he loves yogurt and he drinks massive amount of milk regularly.
When he was 18 he came back home and since then he’s been growing abnormally in both height and width. Now at the mature age of 36 he is still growing. Last year he was just 8-1 and now he is 8-4.

Last few years KIA has been happily printing mountains of fake kyats 5,000 (about 6 US$) notes and distributing the counterfeit notes in Burma through their last stronghold Laiza on the China border. They are not just dealing in fake Burmese kyats. They are also involving in printing and distributing fake US$ and fake Chinese Yuan notes inside China.

Hello. My name is Paul Weston and I am a racist.
I know I'm a racist because I'm told I'm a racist by a great deal of people. The hard Left think I'm a racist, the Labour Party thinks I'm a racist, Conservatives think I'm a racist, Liberal Democrats think I'm a racist, the BBC thinks I'm a racist. So I must therefore be a racist.
Why am I a racist? It's very simple: I wish to preserve the culture of my country, I wish to preserve the people of my country, and in doing so that makes me a designated racist in today's society.

|A doctored-photo displaying Buddhist mob on bikes.|
The original photo was a shot of general motorbike traffic on a busy main road in Lashio and the photo-journalist reframed it and enhanced only the pillion-riding man with big-stick on a motorbike and made it look like a mob of armed motorbike riders.
And his misleading photo and his melodramatic story attached as the accompanying news story was gladly picked up and re-published by the leftist-controlled pro-Muslim BBC and left-wing New York Times.

|Professor Jonathan Matusitz's Book.|
The University of Central Florida Nicholson School of Communication is proud to bring you the third in a Lecture Series on Terrorism and Communication. The title for this lecture is "How Culture Shapes Terrorism".
Professor Jonathan Matusitz has 95 academic publications and over 100 conference presentations, he taught at a NATO-affiliated military base in Belgium in 2010. In 2011, Dr. Matusitz's research was cited by the U.S. Supreme Court.
Tonights special guest speaker is Congresswoman Sandy Adams (2011-13). Ms. Adam's background in law enforcement and as a U.S. Congresswoman gives her a unique perspective on this subject matter you are fortunate to hear.
The DOD definition of terrorism is "the calculated use of violence or the threat of violence to inculcate fear; intended to coerce or to intimidate governments or societies in the pursuit of goals that are generally political, religious, or ideological." A RAND study showed that 96% of worldwide terrorism is Islamist related.

Burmese Government has already stopped Burmese workers from leaving Burma for Malaysia this week after the Burmese special fact-finding mission led by Deputy Foreign Minister Zin Yaw and Deputy Labor Minster Win Maw Htun has confirmed back the actual life-threatening situation Burmese are facing from roaming Bengali-Muslim killer gangs in Malaysia.
To facilitate speedy return of Burmese Buddhists from Malaysia the Irrawaddy Foundation is providing 1,000 one way free tickets home from KL to Rangoon while MAI (Myanmar Airways International) is offering half-price tickets from KL to Rangoon.

Turkish riot police using teargas and water cannon battled protesters for control of Taksim Square in Istanbul on Tuesday night, hours after the prime minister, Tayyip Erdogan, demanded an immediate end to 10 days of demonstrations.
Istanbul's governor, Huseyin Avni Mutlu, declared on TV that police operations would continue day and night until the square, the focus of protests against Erdogan, was cleared.
Police fired volleys of teargas canisters into a crowd of thousands – people in office wear as well as youths in masks who had fought skirmishes throughout the day – scattering them into side streets and nearby hotels. Water cannon swept across the square.
In the meeting they exchanged ideas and openly discussed on following state matters:

"When the most devastating terrorist attacks on America in the last 20 years come overwhelmingly from people of a single faith and are performed in the name of that faith, a special obligation falls on those that are the leaders of that faith," Pompeo said on the House floor.
"Instead of responding, silence has made these Islamic leaders across America potentially complicit in these acts, and more importantly still, in those that may well follow."

|The Yarzarmin Bus robbed by 5 gunmen near Thaton.|
At about 9 pm in the dark night of June-8 a luxury passenger bus from prominent Muslim-owned Yarzarmin Bus Line was violently taken over at gunpoint by a group of 5 armed-men travelling as passengers on the bus on its scheduled trip to Rangoon from Kyaik-kha-mee in Mon State.
The 5 men armed with 9mm pistols forced the Muslim driver and Muslim conductor at gunpoint to veer the bus off into a rural road leading to Oung-sai village from the main highway between the mileposts 154/4 and 154/5 near the Taung-zun village in Tha-hton township of Mon State.

|Former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.|
The ideology behind Lee Rigby's murder is profound and dangerous. We must take on this extremism.
There is only one view of the murder of Lee Rigby: horrific.
But there are two views of its significance. One is that it is the act of crazy people, motivated in this case by a perverted idea about Islam, but of no broader significance. Crazy people do crazy things. So don’t overreact.
The other view is that this act was indeed horrible; and that the ideology which inspired it, is profound and dangerous.
I am of this latter view.

|Islamist-Dictator Erdogan of Turkey.|
I’ve referred to Turkish Prime Minister Erdogan as the “king of the Islamists” because of his ability to swoon the West, make Israel bend and maintain popularity while implementing Sharia using the doctrine of“gradualism.” He now faces his biggest internal challenge as protests against him enter their fifth day in what one expert compares to the “eruption of a volcano.”
The unexpected spark was Erdogan’s plan to redevelop Gezi Park in Taksim Square. Reuters explains that Taksim honors the secular legacy of Ataturk, while the other squares in the capital reflect upon the days of the Ottoman Empire. When Erdogan planned to transform the park into an Ottoman-theme shopping center with a mosque, apartment complex and model of Ottoman-era barracks, it was seen by secularists as a washing away of Ataturk.

The numbers show that although Christianity is still the main religion in Britain -- over 50% of the population describe themselves as such -- nearly half of all Christians in Britain are over the age of 50, and, for the first time ever, fewer than half under the age of 25 describe themselves as Christian.
By contrast, the number of people under 25 who describe themselves as Muslim has doubled over the past ten years: one in ten under the age of 25 are Muslim, up from one in 20 in 2001.

The two dead were likely Myanmar Buddhists killed during a spate of violent incidents in Kuala Lumpur since May 30, said Amar Singh Ishar Singh, the Malaysian capital's deputy police chief.
He added that two other people were in critical condition and the attacks were "believed to be the result of violence in Myanmar."

Christians in countries with Moslem majorities, or large minorities, are having a difficult time getting the rest of the world to recognize that most (as in about 80 percent) of the religious violence in the world is carried out against Christians and most of the violence is committed by Moslems.
This is because the Islamic world, while unable to do much in terms of economic, scientific, or cultural progress, or even govern themselves effectively, have proven quite adept at convincing leaders and media organizations in the West that Islam is not the aggressor and is actually the victim. For those who have spent any time living among Moslems, this all seems absurd. But this delusion is real.
For example, it’s official policy in the U.S. military to eliminate any mention of a war between Islam and the West. This policy is enforced despite the fact that Islam, at least according to many Islamic clerics, is at war with the West.

“Myanmar Man Found Dead With Slash Wound In Selayang” on June 1, 2013.
“KUALA LAMPUR, June 1 (Bernama) – A Myanmar man was found dead with a slash wound on his neck at Jalan 8/3A, Pusat Bandar Utara Selayang, here Friday night. Sentul deputy police chief Supt Othman Abu Bakar said the body was discovered by one of his countrymen at a back lane behind a shop at 10:15 pm.
“According to the man, he earlier saw a group of men whom he did not recognize but believe to be Myanmar nationals (Muslim Bengalis from Burma) train a torchlight at the deceased’s head. He then went to Seri Muni, Selayang police station to report the matter,” he said when contacted by Bernama.
