Al Qaeda-linked jihadists from Syria have been attempting to smuggle Muslim fighters into Myanmar, where angry Buddhists have taken up arms against Muslims who have been killing their monks and raping their women.
NOW mmedia (h/t Vlad Tepes) “Contacts with Islamist groups in Pakistan, India and other surrounding countries are being made in order to facilitate their entry into Myanmar.” The source, however, added that “these attempts have failed.” (See video below)
Speaking to NOW, Salafist Sheikh Bilal al-Masri called on Muslims to attack Buddhists and their interests. “I decree that every person who can get to a Buddhist should kill him because they are killing our people and the Muslims cannot be blamed for their reaction.”
The Sheikh went on to say that there was “a systematic war” against Muslims in Mali, Iraq, Palestine and Myanmar. “All this can trigger extremism, and then they will say that we are the terrorists,” the sheikh added. (No, it is Islamic extremism/supremacism that triggers the systematic war against Muslims)
Extremist groups have emerged in Syria after more than two years of violence between President Bashar al-Assad’s regime loyalists and rebels. Al-Nusra Front emerged as one of the prominent organizations involved in Syria’s conflict, which erupted in March 2011.
Deadly communal unrest erupted in central Myanmar last month, the worst since violence between Buddhists and Rohingya in the western state of Rakhine last year left scores dead and tens of thousands – mainly Muslims – displaced.
Rohingya have been fleeing the violence in Myanmar in the thousands and are described by the UN as one of the most persecuted minorities in the world. (They aren’t persecuted. They are the persecutors who cause so much trouble that even their fellow Muslims in Bangladesh refused to take in Muslim refugees from Myanmar. They turned around all their boats and sent them back)
