Derek Tonkin :

RFA writes: "The U.N. previously said that reports of atrocities committed during the crackdown that killed an estimated 1,000 people and displaced about 90,000 Rohingya, most of whom fled to neighboring Bangladesh where they are living in refugee camps, may amount to genocide or ethnic cleansing." With respect, the UN has said no such thing. They have spoken of possible crimes against humanity, and also of allegations of serious human rights abuses, but "genocide" has never been mentioned, and "ethnic cleansing" only obliquely. See February OHCHR "Flash Report", Yanghee Lee's latest report in March and HRC Resolution also in March.

Richard from San Francisco :

The United Nation Human Rights Council too highlighted on Rohingya issues.They are turning a blind eye on the whole stories in the Rakhine state.
Look the history back who they are, Human is human ethnic is ethnic different meaning they wanted to be created the name "Rohingya" is a joke.Myanmar country under British colonial rule the government 122 years (1826-1948) recorded no such ethnic Rohingya. That's ok another thing is they are staying borderline of Myanmar, India, and Bangladesh so' why India and Bangladesh have no any a single Rohingya ethnic? this name is lies and just created and make Myanmar country into problems. .
Bengalis(Rohingya) are trying to hijack Rakhine state by inventing fake story after another fake story. The OIC-Arab Muslim countries are supporting those Bengalis(Rohingya) Activists and the illegal Bengali ( Rohingya) migrants’ group by given money and organizing terrorism training for Bengali (Rohingya) terrorists in Pakistan and Afghanistan border. In fact, they are economic refugees and also jihadist terrorists.
The real victim here is the small indigenous Rakhine ethnic people from Burma who remain voiceless and not getting any assistance from western countries but who have been clinging to their Buddhist religion for years against the continuous onslaught of Bengali (Rohingya) Jihadi terrorists,

skai from lon :

Thanks a million , what you say is 100% right, it's shame that the main stream media in the West are against the Buddhist's of Myanmar, they give fake news in order for people to sympathise with Rohingyas. UN is most corrupt, and must be disbanded. Do you know that the whole of Far East was Buddhist and Hindus until muslim traders came to those lands. I do sympathise with Buddhist of Myanmar .
