Tutu implores 'beloved sister' Daw Suu to end violence in Rakhine

Tutu implores 'beloved sister' Daw Suu to end violence in Rakhine

A beloved Nobel Peace Prize victor is presiding over an ethnic cleansing in which villages are burned, women raped and children butchered. "It goes back to pre-colonial times", she argued. "They burned houses and tried to shoot us".

Archbishop Desmond Tutu has criticized Myanmar's de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi over her silence on the issue of the persecution of Rohingya Muslims in her country.

And "ethnic cleansing" may be an understatement. Since late August, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya have fled the country.

Now the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum has called on the government to act in order to prevent further bloodshed.

Ms Suu Kyi has attracted criticism from around the world for failing to speak out about the violence.

"We will manage it on a humanitarian basis".

One Rohingya survivor told Mr Smith: "My two nephews - their heads were cut off". "And, in fact, the current crisis was spurred by an attack by a militant group acting in the name of the Rohingya".

In this Friday, July 14, 2017 photo, Myanmar Border Guard Police (BGP) officers walk along a path ahead of journalists in Tin May village, in which Myanmar government and military claim the existence of Muslim terrorists in Buthidaung, Rakhine State, Myanmar.

Now, it says the ideals that she inspired "appear absent" in the defence of Rohingya.

Although Suu Kyi has been somewhat subdued on the Rohingya situation since her National League for Democracy won an election two years ago, she said Thursday that her government would protect all residents.

Based on a conversation with Ms Suu Kyi once about the Rohingya, I think she genuinely believes that they are outsiders and troublemakers.

Protests against the treatment of the Rohingya were held in several countries, including Muslim-majority Bangladesh, Indonesia and Malaysia. "Now that she's in power, she symbolises cowardly complicity in the deadly tyranny being visited on the Rohingya". Many were systematically denied medical care, and children were barred from public schools.

The 85-year-old also warned that the outcome of her ignorance to the massacre was "too steep".

"I call on the government to end its current cruel military operation, with accountability for all violations that have occurred, and to reverse the pattern of severe and widespread discrimination against the Rohingya population", he added.

"The cult of Aung San Suu Kyi was fabricated by elements in the Atlantic World establishment committed to imposing a US-led, New World Order which, of course, is only a slightly more neutral term for the neo-conservative plan to impose what they inaptly refer to as Pax Americana", Grossman said. I hope United States President Donald Trump speaks up as well.

Ms Suu Kyi spent nearly 15 of the 21 years between 1989 to 2010 under house arrest in Myanmar. A basic lesson of history: Ignoring a possible genocide only encourages the persecutors.

A petition calling for Suu Kyi's peace prize to be revoked has reportedly been signed by more than 386,000 people.
