Last year I wrote an article about how Swedish society is disintegrating and is in danger of collapsing, at least in certain areas and regions. The country that gave us Bergman, ABBA and Volvo could become known as the Bosnia of northern Europe.
The “Swedish model” would no longer refer to a stable and peaceful state with an advanced economy, but to a Eurabian horror story of utopian multiculturalism, socialist mismanagement and runaway immigration. Some thought I was exaggerating, and that talk of the possibility of a future civil war in Sweden was pure paranoia. Was it?
In a new sociological survey entitled “Vi krigar mot svenskarna” (“We’re waging a war against the Swedes”), young immigrants in the troubled city of Malmö have been interviewed about why they are involved in crime. Although it is not stated, most of the immigrant perpetrators are Muslims.

On the morning of the 9th, the vast multitude which had so long surrounded us had wholly disappeared; the Bandoola, with the veteran band which still adhered to him, retiring from the field of his disasters towards Donoobew (Da-nuu-byu), now strongly fortified, and ready for his reception.
He had not, however, proceeded far in his retreat, when he was met by considerable reinforcements, and shame and dread of the consequences of a tyrant’s disappointment, acting at once upon a mind naturally bold and daring, he resolved to make a last and desperate effort to retrieve his blighted fame, and to afford the British force the opportunity of making their victory, and his disgrace, complete.

"Stay out of Australia," BHP boss tells foreign investors. "The Mining Boom is over," Australian Federal Resources Minister Martin Ferguson tells the world.
Two days after mining giant BHP Billiton announced it was scrapping a $30 billion expansion plan in South Australia, its chief Marius Kloppers has warned European investors to stay away from Australia while the Federal Minister for Resources Martin Ferguson abruptly told the world that the mining boom in Australia is over.
According to Fairfax reports, Kloppers told British media that new investments in Australia's coal sector would not be profitable given the country’s carbon and mining taxes.

|Future of Buddhist Burma (2099)?|
Burmese are basically saying that what they do with the Bengali illegals on their border is their own business, not even UN’s let alone the OIC’s. The Bengali illegals being Muslim is just a coincidence.
But OIC, the organization well known as the Multinational Muslim Mafia, seems to see it differently. As part of OIC’s grand scheme of expanding the Islamic Empire, getting a toehold in Burma by grabbing Northern Arrakan and then to be re-populated by the fellow Muslims aka the Bengali-Muslims from the population-exploding and slowly-sinking Bangladesh is right now the most important objective for the sole umbrella organization of Muslims worldwide.

|Senator Mitch McConnell, the main|
man behind the US sanctions and
the foe of Burmese people.
The renewal seemed set to lapse, but congress came through and on August 2 again approved sanctions on Myanmar imports into the US. President Barack Obama then signed the legislation, despite his government's earlier encouragement of the positive political changes underway in Myanmar under President Thein Sein's year-old administration.
So once again, and in spite of significant and applaudable progress on Myanmar policy, including a recent lifting of a ban on US corporations making new investments in the country, the US is still behind the reformist curve on Myanmar. Sensible foreign policy on Myanmar is being held partly captive to an arcane American internal political process.

|(Islam And Buddhism)|
For example: “(Qur’an, 4:48) God does not forgive anything being associated with Him, but He forgives whoever He wills for anything other than that. Anyone who associates something with God has committed a terrible crime. To bow before these invented gods is a terrible crime against God.
As stated in the Qur’an (4: 48), God may forgive those who commit every other sin and error, but never one who associates His creatures with Him."
(From Chapter - 1 of ‘Islam and Buddhism’ by Harun Yahya.)
In his book Islam and Buddhism, Harun Yahya, a Muslim-fundamentalist and an Islamic-creationist and a convicted Turkish-criminal, concludes that Buddhists’ accomplishments are purposeless and that they are “destined for destruction” because their understanding of God and religion is incompatible with Islam. Harun Yahya accuses Buddhists of “associating” false gods with the real one.

The joint announcement was signed by leaders of five Islamic associations, namely Olama Muslim Theologians, Islam Religions Affairs Council Headquarters, Myanmar Maulawi Organization Headquarters, Myanmar Muslim Youth's Religious Organization ( MaMala Headquarters) and Myanmar Muslin National League (MaAhPha Headquarters).

NEW DELHI: Videos doctored in Pakistan sparked NE exodus. The government on Saturday said a bulk of the doctored incendiary videos and horrific clippings of atrocities allegedly committed on Muslims in lower Assam and Myanmar were uploaded on various blogs in Pakistan in a bid to incite the minority community in India.
"Technical investigation has established that a bulk of the incendiary images was first uploaded on blogs in Pakistan," disclosed Union home secretary R K Singh.
He told TOI that India would raise the issue with Pakistan. "I am sure they will deny it, but we have fairly accurate technical evidence to show that the images originated and were circulated from their territory," he said.

|Supposedly a Muslim burning in Burma.|
In an interview with Voice of America (VOA) broadcast this week Burma’s Reformist President Thein Sein denied accusations of genocide from Muslim countries, saying that images posted online showing piles of bodies were “fabrications” and from “incidents that happened in other countries, not here.”
And here is the proof from the horse’s mouth. Mr. Faraz Ahmed Siddiqui the famous Pakistani blogger from Karachi and a fair-minded Muslim who was really sick of all the Muslim-killing lies against Burma and the fake photos released all over the world by the various groups of extremist Muslims (including the mega-oil-rich Saudi Arabia) has turned a whistleblower and exposed the conspiracy of his fellow Muslims.

BANGALORE, India (AP) -- Thousands of panic-stricken Indians from the northeast were fleeing the southern city of Bangalore on Thursday, spurred by rumors they would be attacked in retaliation for communal violence in their home state.
Hundreds of students and workers from Assam state crowded Bangalore's main railway station to try to board trains heading out of the city, while officials tried in vain to assure them of their safety. People pushed and shoved and some climbed in through train windows to make it past the crush at the doors.

The TV cameras then moved up to the deck of USS Wisconsin and there he was. Familiar lanky frame of Paul Ryan almost running down energetically the flag-adorned gangway of the old battleship.

¶1. (C) UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) Antonio Guterres' March 7-12 visit to Burma was strictly controlled by the GOB, according to local UN staff. Guterres visited Nay Pyi Taw, Sittwe (Rakhine State), and Myeik (Thanintharyi Division). Guterres met with the Ministers for Home Affairs and Immigration, Foreign Affairs, and Border Areas and National Races (NATALA) as well as UNHCR staff working in northern Rakhine State (NRS). The regime allowed him to brief the UN Country Team, but did not permit him to meet with any diplomats during his visit; GOB officials also denied any abuse of the Rohingya population. According to UNHCR Country Representative Bhairaja Panday, the Minister of Home Affairs agreed to enter into a new Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the UNHCR, but few specifics were discussed. Panday reported that Guterres directed UNHCR's Burma office to expand immediately its presence and activities in Northern Rakhine State, and Panday expects to receive the necessary additional funding shortly.

|Congressman Paul Ryan.|
One day in March, 2009, two months after the Inauguration of President Obama, Representative Paul Ryan, of Wisconsin, sat behind a small table in a cramped meeting space in his Capitol Hill office. Hunched forward in his chair, he rattled off well-rehearsed critiques of the new President’s policies and America’s lurch toward a “European” style of government.
Ryan’s father, grandfather, and great-grandfather all died before their sixtieth birthdays, so Ryan, who is now forty-two, could be forgiven if he seemed like a man in a hurry. Tall and wiry, with a puff of wavy dark hair, he is nearly as well known in Washington for his punishing early-morning workouts as he is for his mastery of the federal budget. Asked to explain his opposition to Obama’s newly released budget, he replied, “I don’t have that much time.”

|Rice, Glorious Rice.|
That's a tall order, but industry and government officials have begun drafting plans to revitalise the industry after years of neglect and military mismanagement.
No country's appetite is quite like Myanmar's, which boasts the world's highest annual rice consumption at 210 kg (460 lb) per person. It makes up 75 percent of the country's diet, according to government statistics.
That helps explains its economy.
(And the stunted frames of Burmese and the slow-growing population of Burma due to the serious lack of protein in their diet as the white rice basically has no protein content left after its protein-rich Bran the outer-shell was completely ground off in the milling process.)

1942 Bengali-Yakhine Riots locally known as the Kalar-Yakhine Ahdikayone in Burmese began from Sittwe the capital city of Arrakan state in Burma in early 1942.
British were withdrawing rapidly from Burma and the Indian soldiers from Rajpur Native Battalions together with the Bengali-Muslims were raping the Yakhine women and girls and killing Yakhine Men and boys all over the Sittwe town during that lawless vacuum.
Finally the Buddhist Yakhines took the law into their own hands and started killing the British Indian soldiers and the Bengali soldiers in Sittwe. The full-blown Benglai-Yakhine riots soon spread to Myaybone, Minbyar, Myauk-U, and Kyauktaw townships.

Classified By: Economic Officer Samantha A. Carl-Yoder for Reasons 1.4 (b and d).
¶1. (C) U Moe Myint, owner of Myanmar Petroleum Resources Ltd. (MPRL) and Myint and Associates, became subject to the 212F visa ban in 2008 due to alleged connections to the Burmese regime. While he is a successful Burmese businessman, he did not earn this wealth based on his connections to the regime. U Moe Myint is often at odds with the GOB, particularly the Ministry of Energy and the Myanmar Oil and Gas Enterprise (MOGE), and has repeatedly declined "offers" to enter into a typical crony relationship. Under Presidential Proclamation 6925, Embassy Rangoon requests that U Moe Myint and his family be removed from the 212F list because he is a legitimate businessman who does not provide or derive significant support to or from the regime. U Moe Myint is also a close Embassy contact, often providing us with valuable information on Burma's oil and gas sector and general economic information. End Summary.

|Front Cover of Maung Maung's Book.|
After 1988, many students crossed the border to join the newly formed All Burma Students’ Democratic Front. One branch, known as the ABSDF (NB or Northern Burma), was based in Myanmar, just yards from the Chinese border. As is usual with any organisation hurriedly made up of friends and strangers, there were discords and jostling for position.
What set it apart from the usual “office” politics was that more than 100 of the 300 student soldiers of the ABSDF (NB) were accused of being ranking members of Military Intelligence. They were tortured until they confessed or died from their wounds, or executed if no confession was obtained. The “interrogations” took months and the tortures ranged from being nailed to a cross with 5-inch spikes, having hands cut off and having jagged rods shoved into body openings to the day-to-day: beatings, electric shocks and kicks with steel-tipped boots.

|Scene of the mob-attack on a Burmese Restaurant in KL.|
“We first heard of them Bengali mob protesting in front of Myanmar Embassy after their usual Friday prayers at their Bengali mosque in KL. From there after the protest they came back into the city and assaulted any Burmese or Yakhine Buddhist they found on the way. So young Yakhines nearby came into our shop to take a refuge from the Muslim mob.
The Bengali-Muslims chasing the Yakhine boys followed them into our shop and once they knew they were in a Buddhist shop they started destroying the chairs and tables. They destroyed almost everything here. They then took all the computers for sale at our shop. Bloody thieves and mother-fuckers,” said bitterly U Saw Aung to the Narinjara News Agency.
