Rohingya activists have long demanded recognition as an indigenous ethnic group with full citizenship by birthright, claiming a centuries-old lineage in Rakhine. But the government regards them as illegal immigrants from neighboring Bangladesh and denies them citizenship.

It reminds me of my childhood terrifying experience when the muslims from across the river of our village attacked us out of the clear blue sunny sky during their celebration of their prophet mohammad's birthday. They tried to burn our village down during their second attack three months later. Our women and children had to flee to another part of the country while our able men stayed behind to fight against their relentless attacks on our village ground. We never once even intrude upon the their village.
But, I blame their violent inclination and culture on one culprit: islam. Without islam, before islam was cooked up by mohammad, these ethnic people were peaceful people like their peaceful cousins, the Thais, Vietnamese, Burmese, Philipinos and the Baliness of the Indonesia ethnic people.
But, islam changed all that worldwide wherever islam rears its head. Muslims are its first victims in which some became its zombies. Or do you still insist islam is the religion of peace?
