Al Qaeda warns Myanmar of 'punishment' over Rohingya

YANGON (Reuters) - Al Qaeda militants have called for support for Myanmar's Rohingya Muslims, who are facing a security crackdown that has sent about 400,000 of them fleeing to Bangladesh, warning that Myanmar would face "punishment" for its "crimes".

 

The exodus of Muslim refugees from Buddhist-majority Myanmar was sparked by a fierce security force response to a series of Rohingya militant attacks on police and army posts in the country's west on Aug. 25.

 

The Islamist group behind the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks on the Untied States issued a statement urging Muslims around the world to support their fellow Muslims in Myanmar with aid, weapons and "military support".

 

"The savage treatment meted out to our Muslim brothers ... shall not pass without punishment," al Qaeda said in a statement, according to the SITE monitoring group.

 

"The government of Myanmar shall be made to taste what our Muslim brothers have tasted."

 

Myanmar says its security forces are engaged in a legitimate campaign against "terrorists", whom it blames for attacks on the police and army, and on civilians.

 

The government has warned of bomb attacks in cities, and al Qaeda's call to arms is likely to compound those concerns.

 

"We call upon all mujahid brothers in Bangladesh, India, Pakistan, and the Philippines to set out for Burma to help their Muslim brothers, and to make the necessary preparations — training and the like - to resist this oppression," the group said.

Al Qaeda may well find a different sort of force to fight against in Myanmar. The Burmese people will not be bound by the niceties that western forces stupidly have to follow called the rules of war. I expect they will be as savage as the muslims are.

With respect, I think you might be missing the point, or at least the likely reality tryasimight.  The people who will suffer from this 'jihad' will be as innocent as the vast majority of the muslims suffering from the Buddhist extremists recently.

Errr....the Buddhists 'extremism' is a direct response to the muslim attacks.

I live and work with Myanmar people, and they are not happy with the recent, and not so recent, actions by the muslims.

Sounds like a good reason not to let ANY Muslims into Myanmar ....ever

Yes, you are right. Nasty Muslims. So are you ok with the nice Buddhists killing children, raping women, ethnic cleansing which seems to be what's going on.

Is that really true?  Reports of buddhist extremism track back several years. Anyhow that was not my point.  My point was that those who will suffer from a backlash caused from this will be innocents.

I would not be OK with anyone doing that... but you seem to be OK with the Muslims doing it and think they should be allowed to do it as they are poor misunderstood muslims doing it form other people oppressing them?

 

These people are not native to that country... they are in fact ILLEGAL IMMAGRANTS.. who have stayed there.. despite many attempts to get them to leave.. and they UNDERSTOOD they would not be allowed to stay when they first went there... but typical to Muslims, once in they think they are there for good.. as their god will take over that country for Islam.. and none belivers will be punished by death and torture.   

 

In this situation they have kept having children during their stay.. and now claim they have a right to stay there and are being persecuted.  

 

You try to come to Thailand illegally or any other country with your family  and then demand to stay there... the least you can expect in imprisonment if you don't leave.  But then if you had a muslim family your family would start bombing stuff, raping and beheading people in revenge for your imprisonment...  and the West would report on the news how YOU and your family were victims or persecution.  

 

These people are illegal immigrants, not welcome, they hate the religion of that country and the people and culture there... so its time they got out.

 

I suggest you do some research how and when these muslims came to Burma in the first place before you start defending them.

The threat from all quaeda sounds quite nasty, so yes it is a nasty ideology.

I am OK with nice Buddhists protecting their own, and sometimes that entails violence, these Muslims should go to a Muslim country I.e bangladesh

You can't kill and rape innocent poor people unless you convince the country's population that the killing and raping is justified or the victims are salvages. What is happening in Burma is criminal and intentional. Just like the Americans slaughtering the Indians.

Tell that to the Rohingas mate.

If only it was as simple as "Nasty Muslims" or "Nasty Buddhists" in this case, it would be much easier for us all, it is not. The history of Bengali immigration into Myanmar is a long and complicated one, and it appears that the largest movement came when the British Empire used them to help control the indigenous Burmese whist they removed the teak etc - no surprise there then.  The British armed the Rohinga muslims in WW2 to help them fight the Japanese. The Rohingas used the arms to destroy Burmese Buddhist villages (Sound familiar) look up the "Arakan massacres".  Even despite the recent Jihadi attacks on the police stations, the Myanmar army response has been, by all appearances in the western media, which one cannot trust in their totality,  unspeakably harsh. However resentment on both sides has been brewing for centuries, there are no good guys.
