The military junta in Myanmar (Burma) has committed genocide against the Rohingya minority

Peaceful Buddhist monks without any weapons can demonstrate on the streets in Myanmar, but the military junta government with weapons can kill them if they want, and that have happened. What`s even worse is their systemic killings of the Rohingya minorities. That’s Genocide.

For most of its independent years, Myanmar has been engrossed in rampant ethnic strife and its myriad ethnic groups have been involved in one of the world`s longest-running ongoing civil wars. Myanmar is an ethnically diverse nation with 135 distinct ethnic groups officially recognized by the Burmese military Government.

The UN and several other organizations have reported consistent and systemic human rights violations in the country.

In 2011, the military junta was officially dissolved following a 2010 general election, and a nominally civilian government was installed. This, along with the release of Aung San Suu Kyi and political prisoners and successful elections in 2015, had improved the country`s human rights record and foreign relations and had led to the easing of trade and other economic sanctions, although the country`s treatment of its ethnic minorities, particularly in connection with the Rohingya conflict, continued to be condemned by international organizations and many nations.

Following the 2020 Myanmar general election, in which Aung San Suu Kyi`s won a clear majority in both houses, the Burmese military again seized power in a coup d’etat.

The coup, which was widely condemned, led to widespread protests in Myanmar and has been marked by a violent response by the military.

The military junta also arrested Aung San Suu Kyi and charged her with crimes ranging from corruption to the violation of Covid protocols, all of which have been labeled «politically motivated» by independent observers.

Aung San Suu Kyi is a Burmese politician, diplomat, author, and a 1991 Nobel Peace Prize laureate who served as State Counsellor of Myanmar and Minister of Foreign Affairs from 2016 to 2021.

The Rohingya people have consistently faced human rights abuses by the Burmese regime that has refused to acknowledge them as Burmese citizens, despite the fact that some of them have lived in Burma for over three generations.

The Rohingya have been denied Burmese citizenship since the enactment of a 1982 citizenship law.

The law created three categories of citizenship:

  • citizenship
  • associate citizenship, and
  • naturalised citizenship

Citizenship is given to those who belong to one of the national races such as Kachin, Kayah (Karenni), Karen, Chin, Burman, Mon, Rakhine, Shan, Kaman, or Zebedee.

Associate citizenship is given to those who cannot prove their ancestors settled in Myanmar before 1823 but can prove they have one grandparent, or pre-1823 ancestor, who was a citizen of another country, as well as people who applied for citizenship in 1948 and qualified then by those laws.

Naturalized citizenship is only given to those who have at least one parent with one of these types of Burmese citizenship or can provide «conclusive evidence» that their parents entered and resided in Burma prior to independence in 1948.

The Burmese regime has attempted to forcibly expel Rohingya and bring in non-Rohingya to replace them.

This policy has resulted in the expulsion of approximately half of the 800,000 Rohingya from Burma, while the Rohingya people have been described as «among the world`s least wanted», and «one of the world`s most persecuted minorities».

But the origin of the «most persecuted minority» statement is unclear.

Rohingya are not allowed to travel without official permission, are banned from owning land, and are required to sign a commitment to have no more than two children.

As of July 2012, the Myanmar government does not include the Rohingya minority group, classified as stateless Bengali Muslims from Bangladesh since 1982, on the government`s list of more than 130 ethnic races and, therefore, the government states that they have no claim to Myanmar citizenship.

In 2007, German professor Bassam Tibi suggested that the Rohingya conflict may be driven by an Islamist political agenda to impose religious laws, while non-religious causes have also been raised, such as a lingering resentment over the violence that occurred during the Japanese occupation of Burma in World War II.

During this time period, the British allied themselves with the Rohingya and fought against the puppet government of Burma (composed mostly by Bamar Japanese) that helped to establish the Tatmadaw military organization that remains in power for a 5-year lapse in 2016 – 2021.

Since the democratic transition began in 2011, there has been continuous violence in Myanmar. A UN envoy reported in March 2013 that unrest had re-emerged between Myanmar`s Buddhist and Muslim communities.

Yesterday, the Biden administration declared that the military junta in Myanmar has committed genocide against the Rohingya minority. The Biden administration has enough evidence to say that the junta has a clear intent to destroy the Rohingya.

The evidence of killings is mass rape and arson, Secretary of State Antony Blinken said on Monday.

Antony Blinken had a speech at the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington DC, and he said that the killings of the Rohingya minority were «widespread and systematic». Hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims have fled Myanmar since the military crackdown that began in 2017.

Mr. Blinken announced the US would provide $1 million in new funding for the Independent Investigative Mechanism for Myanmar, which continues to examine atrocities. A case against Myanmar, also called Burma, was opened at the International Court of Justice in 2019.

«The day will come when those responsible for these appalling acts will have to answer for them», Mr. Blinken said.

Taiwan officially known as Republic of China has been self-ruled since 1950, but China considers Taiwan part of its land that must be reunited with mainland even by force

Tsai-Ing-Wen and the Democratic Progressive Party has won a historic landslide victory in the Taiwan election. They defeated the much more Pro China rival Han Kuo-Yu and the KMT. This is a big surprise and no one would have expected this outcome a year ago.

This is a clear message to the one rule Communist Party in Beijing. The people in Taiwan rejects China`s plan for reunification with the island. It`s a remarkable turnaround for the president, whose party suffered major losses in local elections just a year ago.

I believe that the rise of the party started when Pro Democracy protesters in Hong Kong took to the streets last year. People are more awake today than only a few months ago. Months of ant-govenment protests in nearby Hong Kong boosted Wen`s campaign, and scenes of police cracking down on demonstrators appear to have galvanised younger voters.

Tsai warned that Taiwan`s democratic rights must be preserved, and the country has its own military, currency and a passport accepted in most countries. But, Taiwan does not have a seat at the United Nations, and only 15 countries officially recognise Taiwan`s democratic government. United States is not one of them.

Tsai said that the people in Taiwan reject the one country, two systems model. We respect democracy and our sovereign rights, she said. Huh, it sounds like Trump who is fighting against the globalists in Europe.

On the other side; Washington is Taiwan`s most important ally and trading partner. It will be interesting to see how far the U.S will go to defend Taiwan and what will Xi and the Communists in Beijing do in respond to Tsai Ing-Wen`s win, which gives her a second term in office? The Communists have ramped up pressure on Taiwan and cut off official communication with Tsai in the past.

Tsai Ing-Wen said peace means that China must abondon threats of force against Taiwan. She also said she hope Beijing understands that democratic Taiwan will not concede to threats. China says it will not change position that Taiwan is part of it after Tsai`s re-election.

China claims Taiwan is part of its territory under its “One China Principle”.

We now see a similar situation in Taiwan is it is in Hong Kong. One Country, two systems. Taiwan, officially the Republic of China (ROC), is a state in East Asia.

Taiwanese indigenous peoples settled the island of Taiwan around 6,000 years ago. In the 17th century, Dutch rule opened the island to mass Han immigration. After the brief Kingdom of Tungning in parts of the southern and western areas of the island, the island was annexed in 1683 by the Qing dynastry of China, and ceded to the Empire of Japan in 1895.

Following the surrender of Japan in 1945, the Republic of China, which had overthrown and succeeded the Qing in 1911, took control of Taiwan on behalf of thw World War II Allies.

The resumption of the Chinese Civil War led to the loss of the mainland to the Communist Party of China (CPP) and the flight of the ROC government to Taiwan in 1949. although the ROC government continued to claim to be the legitimate representative of China, since 1950 its effective jurisdiction has been limited to Taiwan and numerous smaller islands.

In the early 1960`s, Taiwan entered a period of rapid economic growth and industrialisation called the «Taiwan Miracle». In the late 1980`s and early 1990`s, the ROC transitioned from a one-party military dictatorship to a multi-party democracy with a semi-presidential system.

Taiwan`s export-oriented industrial economy is the 21st-largest in the world, with major contributions from steel, machinery, electronics and chemicals manufacturing. Taiwan is a developed country, ranking 15th in GDP per capita. It is ranked highly in terms of political and civil liberties, education, health care and human developments.

The political status of Taiwan remains uncertain.

The ROC is no longer a member of the UN, having been replaced by the PRC in 1971. Taiwan is claimed by the PRC, which refuses diplomatic relations with countries that recognise the ROC. International organisations in which the PRC participates either refuses to grant membership to Taiwan or allow it to particitpate only on a non-state basis.

Taiwan is a member of the World Trade Organization, Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation and Asian Development Bank under various offices and institutions that function as de facto embassies and consulates.

Domesticay, the major political division is between parties fvouring eventual Chinese unification and promoting a Chinese identity contrasted with those aspiring to independence and promoting Taiwanese identity, although both sides have moderated their positions to broaden their appeal.

Taiwan officially known as Republic of China has been self-ruled since 1950, but China considers Taiwan part of its land that must be reunited with mainland even by force.

The U.S hailed Tsai`s victory as demonstration of Taiwan`s robust Democratic system. Taiwan`s president Tsai Ing-Wen secures second term in office with 57,1% of votes. The vote is seen as a choice between moving closer to China or resisting push for reunification.

Tsai Ing-Wen told the supporters “today we have defended our democracy and freedom”.

Global call to Protect Religious Freedom

President Trump often says America is a nation of faith and America will always stand for the freedom of religion of every person of every race and every creed. America is very religious and christianity stands very strong.

“The United States founded on the principle that our rights do not come from Government. They come from God. This immortal truth is proclaimed in our Declaration of Independence and enshrined in the First Amendment to our Constitutions Bill of Rights.”

“Our founders understood that no right is more fundamental to a peaceful prosperous and virtous society than the right to follow one`s religious convictions,” Trump said in a speech at the U.N earlier today, Monday.

Approximately 80% of the worlds population live in countries where religious liberty is threatened, restricted or even banned. Jews, Christians, Muslims, Buddhists, Hindus, Sikhs, Yazidis and many other people of faith are being jailed, sanctioned, tortured and even murdered. Often at the hands of their own government.

This is hard to believe. Jailed, tortured or killed simply for expressing their deeply held religious believes. President Trump spoke with a clear voice to the United Nations on Monday. He said the United States of America calls upon the nations of the world to end religious persecution. With big applause.

All this words came from a president who recently said he is «the chosen one.» Some people claim he is sent from God. The family behind him are conservative right-wing christians who are trying to build a great America and a great world, but their World Order is disrupted by people with a different World Order. World Order I is competing with World Order II.

Nikki Haley recounts her time as President Trump`s UN ambassador

Nikki Haley said about six months ago that the U.S was leaving UN human rights council. The Trump administration was withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council because of what U.S ambassador Nikki Haley described as its «hipocrisy» and bias against Israel.

MSM didnt understand much when she said she will resign from the White House. What they said is that everybody is leaving Trump. They also said Haley and Trump was probably enemies, but shes a big fan of Trump and she is working for him.

Nikki Haley is a strong woman and did a very good job confronting the UN bullies.

America do support the rights of all people to have freedoms bestowed on them and that`s why America are withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council

We are living in a world were those who are set to protect the people arent doing it at all, but rather doing the opposite. Thats a big crime. The one who should do something about it is the Human Rights Council, but what we see is that they has become an exercise in shameless hypocrisy with many of the world`s worst human rights abuses going ignored.

The Trump administration is committed to protect and promote the God-given dignity and freedom of every human being. Every human being has rights that are inherent and enviable.

They`re given by God and not by Government. Because of that, no government must take them away.

America has a proud legacy as a champion of Human Rights. A proud legacy of the worlds largest provider of humanitarian aid, and a proud legacy of liberating oppressed people and defeating tyranny throughout the world.

While America do not seek to impose the American system on anyone else, they do support the rights of all people to have freedoms bestowed on them by their creator.

That is why America are withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council. An organization that is not worthy of its name.
