The Muslim men were all stout and good fighting age as if they were selected and prepared for this occasion. On their way towards the Buddhist monastery they torched Motorbikes on the streets, destroyed the Buddhist shops, and burned some Buddhist houses.
And the local Buddhists defending their monastery were waiting for them. But when the two crowds met and the violent clashes started the armed-police arrived and tried to separate the two crowds.

|A burnt-down mosque in Lashio of Northern Shan State.|
The riots were triggered by a fiery attack on Aye Aye Win (24), a petrol retailer (Shan-Buddhist) on Thein-ni Street of 8th Ward in Lashio, by Ne Win (48) a Muslim (Kalar) traveller from Kengton’s 2nd ward. Apparently at about 4:15 pm on May 28 a heated argument broke out between petrol seller Buddhist woman and the Muslim man.

WASHINGTON: President Thein Sein of Burma, the former general who President Barack Obama hopes is leading a transition from dictatorship to democracy, is not an imposing figure. The longer you talk with him, the less imposing he seems.
That, at least, was my impression after interviewing him for about 45 minutes Sunday, along with The Washington Post's Anne Gearan.
We tried to find out whether the president believes the clause the junta inserted into the constitution effectively barring Aung San Suu Kyi, the leader of democracy forces in Burma, from the presidency should remain in effect:

The activist, Rabia Kazan, a columnist for 5 years in Ortadoğu Gazetesi, which is a nationalist Turkish newspaper, and the author of a book titled "Tahran Melekleri" (Angels of Tehran) in which she reviewed temporary marriage in Iran, (a sort of legal prostitution) has been receiving serious death threats from the Fanatic Islamic Community after making her decision to not wear a headscarf, which she was forced to wear by her mother in her childhood. Having gone to the Turkish Police Department, Rabia Kazan declared.
"The headscarf was a decision of my mother and when I uncovered my head, I felt freedom for the first time in my life."
In Myanmar Outpost, a Fading Orwellian Link by Jane Perlez. Left is the British Club in Katha, where male characters of George Orwell's "Burmese Days" lounged and drank tumblers of whiskey and gin. It now houses offices of a cooperative association.
KATHA, Myanmar — George Orwell created his first novel, “Burmese Days,” a scathing portrait of the imperious attitudes of the British, from this former colonial outpost on the banks of the mighty Irrawaddy River. His brutish characters swilled too much whiskey at a whites-only club, and wilted in the vaporous heat. A train that crawled through the jungle from Mandalay provided a lifeline to the outside world.
Local aficionados are encouraging the authorities in Myanmar to restore George Orwell’s house.

Buddhist families from Bangladesh are quietly crossing the border into Myanmar, where local Rakhine Buddhist groups and government agencies are helping them resettle. The move has created pressure on the minority Rohingya Muslims, who have long alleged persecution by the Buddhists to leave.
Muslim Rohingyas, who are not recognized by the state, allege that the Buddhists and the Myanmar government are attempting to throw them out of their villages and take away their land.
“The Buddhists from Bangladesh are being resettled around Rakhine’s Rohingya villages to create more pressure on the local minority community,” says Bangladesh-based Rohingya rights activist Khin Maung Lay.
The contract, which involves the renovation and operation of the former Burmese capital's airport, is worth $1 billion over 30 years and has attracted bids from some of the most powerful corporations in the world. More importantly, from a geostrategic standpoint, it also pits a U.S. consortium including giants Boeing and McKinsey against a joint venture involving the massive Chinese-owned company China Harbour Engineering and Pioneer Aerodrome Service, a firm connected to Burma's former military regime.

“For the past two decades, I have been coming to the Senate floor to condemn acts of the Burmese regime against its own people. And for the past decade, for these same reasons, I have sponsored legislation to impose sanctions on the Burmese government. Beginning in 2003, import sanctions have been renewed annually through the Burmese Freedom and Democracy Act (the BFDA). The BFDA was later enhanced in 2008 through the Tom Lantos Block Burmese JADE Act, a measure I also cosponsored.
“Today, however, I come to the floor with a different message. After having given the matter a great deal of thought and review, I do not believe that Congress should reauthorize the BFDA’s import sanctions. Let me repeat that. I do not believe the BFDA import ban should be renewed for another year.

|One of the Muslim head-chopping thug.|
LONDON (AFP) - British police shot and wounded two men after a man thought to be a serving soldier was killed outside a London barracks, in an attack Prime Minister David Cameron called "truly shocking".
In a dramatic move, the government's emergency response committee was being summoned following the killing which some eyewitness reports suggested was an attempted beheading using machete-like knives.
Some early reports suggested the attack might be Islamist-related, although there was no official confirmation. The incident took place in broad daylight in a street around 200 metres (yards) from the Royal Artillery Barracks in Woolwich, a district of southeast London. Police were called at 2:20 pm (1320 GMT) to reports of one man being assaulted by two others.

What my eldest son the army officer had done was exactly same as what you clearly emphasized in your speech and thus I have to open up and report to you the army commander-in-chief of the over-the-top punishment imposed upon my son.
|Muslim thug Mohammed Issaka during 2012 Sydney riots.|
Appearing at the Downing Centre Local Court on charges of rioting and assaulting police, Issaka's case was held up for 30 minutes after he refused to rise to his feet on the grounds of his "religious beliefs" when magistrate Jacqueline Milledge entered the courtroom.
Despite berating the 44-year-old for his "disrespect", Ms Milledge then went out of her way to placate him - working out a compromise so he could stay in the court. Ms Milledge adjourned the proceedings for a short time, allowing Issaka to leave the room, before she reconvened the court. Once she was seated, Issaka returned to the room - technically standing - as he walked to his seat.

Around 50 (Muslim) youths were involved in the riots in the suburb of Husby, police spokesman Lars Bystrom said.
The (Muslim) youths set light to a parking garage, compelling police to evacuate residents from an adjacent apartment block, Bystrom said. Residents were allowed to return home after a couple of hours.

During his cordial meeting with Burmese families in Washington DC President Thein Sein explained to them the current reform process back home in Burma and he also invited all the Burmese working abroad to come back home and help rebuild their native country.
He also reminded them of some American sanctions still active against Burma and told them that the reason for his visit was to urge the United States to end all the remaining sanctions like infamous Jade Act which bans jades and all gemstones from Burma.

Last week I was accused of using the Boston bombings to whip up hysteria about Islam with this post (http://bernardgaynor.com.au/asio-terror/ ). However, you will find no mention of the Boston bombings anywhere within it.
That is because it was not about Boston. And I’m sure those ‘average American youths’ have done a good enough job of raising concerns about Islamic violence by their own hand without anyone needing to point the finger at me.

|Anti-Islam Dutch politician Geert Wilders.|
The Netherlands, where six per cent of the population is now Muslim, is scrapping multiculturalism. The Dutch government says it will abandon the long-standing model of multiculturalism that has encouraged Muslim immigrants create a parallel society within the Netherlands.
A new integration bill, which Dutch Interior Minister Piet Hein Donner presented to parliament on June 16, reads:
“The government shares the social dissatisfaction over the multicultural society model and plans to shift priority to the values of the Dutch people. In the new integration system, the values of the Dutch society play a central role.” With this change, the government steps away from the model of a multicultural society.

Recently at the US Embassy-sponsored forum titled “Freedom of Expression” held in the evening of May 8 at the American Centre the US Ambassador Derek Mitchell launched a thinly-veiled public attack on the 969 Buddhist Movement for inciting March anti-Muslim violence in Meikhtilar and earlier Islamic race riots in Arakan State last year.

|100 million US$ worth of Territory for OIC's Islamist Army.|
May 9 clandestine meeting between the OIC delegate and SSA (Shan State Army – A Shan insurgent and drug trafficking army in Burma) highest-ranking officers was leaked out by Pakistani diplomatic sources in Malaysia.
The meeting was primarily on offering SSA at least 100 million US$ as first instalment to help OIC establish the Islamic Jihadist Army of Burma’s so-called Rohingyas or Bengali-Muslims and Muslim Mujahedeen volunteers from all over the Islamic world in the SSA-controlled territory bordering Northern Thailand.

The Muslim Brotherhood is the name of a world-wide Sunni Islamist movement, which has spawned several religious and political organizations in the Middle East, including Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad, dedicated to the jihadi credo:
“God is our objective, the Quran is our Constitution, the Prophet is our leader, struggle is our way, and death for the sake of God is the highest of our aspirations.”
It should be noted that al Qaeda’s number two, Ayman al-Zawahri, joined the Muslim Brotherhood at age fourteen. It should also be noted that the Muslim Brotherhood was responsible for the assassination of Egyptian President Anwar Sadat.

|Lt. Col Mathew Dooley US Army.|
By Harold Hutchison From the May 2013 issue of SOF
A CAREER IS HALTED
Lieutenant Colonel Matthew Dooley was a rising star, according to his officer evaluation reports (OERs) going back to 2008. Yet instead, his career now lies in limbo. How that happened raises very disturbing questions about the state of professional military education.
Dear His Holiness Dalai Lama,
(Reference: Dharamsala, HP, India, 22 April 2013, comment to an audience at the University of Maryland, 7 May 2013.)
We think you are misled by some people / groups and one sided media reports based on fabricated propaganda of extremists and opportunists.

A MAGISTRATE handing a chief offender in last year's Muslim riots a four-year jail term says if it was possible she would have sentenced him for longer.
Deputy Chief Magistrate Jane Culver yesterday made the comments while sentencing father-of-one Mahmoud Eid, 26, to at least 33 months in jail with a total term of just over four years over the ugly September 15 riots in which he kicked a police dog and pushed over a policewoman.
The Punchbowl plumber, who was charged with rioting, assaulting police and animal cruelty, was found to have played an active part in every violent clash with police during the protests. His actions were caught on various footage of the riot.
He handed himself in two days after being exposed in the media for his actions, which included pushing over a female constable, kicking police dog "Chuck" in the ribs and hitting an officer's riot shield.

|Rescued 14-year old Burmese-Buddhist girl.|
This is one of the success stories of our 969 Movement’s various rescues of young Burmese-Buddhist girls from the gripping hands of rich Muslim paedophile-rapists all over Burma. This case involves a 14 year-old Burmese-Buddhist girl and her tormentor a 42 year-old Bengali-Muslim kalar both from the South-Oakalarpa township of Rangoon.
It began on 18 March this year. That day at about 6:30 in the evening one patriotic Burmese taxi-driver Aung Aung Oo picked up a really odd couple from the bus stop at South-Oakalarpa Post Office.

|Gang-rape-murder victim Thaung Ma Chay (14).|
All together 173 families of 800 Yakhine Buddhists have entered the Maungdaw District after fleeing from the brutal religious and racial persecution in Bangladesh.
The more than 60-years long Islamic genocide of Buddhists in Bangladesh has been quietly going on in Chittagong Hills while the Muslim-funded and controlled International media like Al-jazebra has been relentlessly loudmouthing the highly-exaggerated and false news about the Buddhist persecution of Muslims in Burma.

|Indonesian Terrorist Leader Abu Bakar Bashir declares|
Muslim holy war Jihad on our Burma (Myanmar).
Islamic terrorists in Indonesia have a new target after militant godfather Abu Bakar Bashir threatened holy war against the Buddhists of Myanmar.
Just hours after the threat was reported on radical site Voice of al-Islam on Thursday, two men were arrested carrying pipe bombs on their way to the Myanmar embassy in central Jakarta.
The report quoted Mr Bashir, who motivated the Bali bombers in 2002, saying Myanmar was conducting genocide against Rohingya Muslims in the Arakan state in the country's west, and that jihad was the only solution.

The event was basically the night-long deliverance of Buddhist sermons in Burmese language by Burmese-Buddhist monks from both Burma and Thailand. The event was held in the spacious Khone-khu-thai Monastery in Mahachai.

|Damaged Oak-kan Mosque.|
The negligible bicycle accident on yesterday 30th April between a Muslim woman and a very young Buddhist novice turned into an ugly anti-Muslim race riots in which the main mosque of the town and about 20 shops owned by town Muslims were destroyed by a Buddhist mob hell bent on driving the much-hated Bengali-Muslims out of their Burmese-Buddhist town.
