    WRITER: REUTERS

    YANGON: Rohingya Muslims are not native to Myanmar, the army chief told the US ambassador in a meeting in which he apparently did not address accusations of abuses by his men and said media was complicit in exaggerating the number of refugees fleeing.

    Just saying something does not make it so. How often do criminals and wrong-doers just come out and say "yes - we did it".

    This business parrallels the hamas terrorist attacks against Israel. Retaliation upsets the terrorists, and they try to get sympathy from world media. islam compels them to attack non believers, and many countries are standing up to it. Israel. Myanmar, and now The Phillipines. I applaud the Myanmar govt for taking the hard line on terrorism. Stamp it out at the root.

    Hi

    This has been going on for hundreds of years.
    To label and think this is about terrorism or Islam is Ludacris.

    It is about one religion wanting to kick out another .

    It is much more like Bosnia. in the 90's way before Iss and islamophobia.

    but so much easier for simple minds to blame on one religion that is different than theirs.

    I'm surprised a certain someone was able to get beyond the Thai gold digger myth ....

    So, the isis supported violence in southern Phillipines, the continual bombings in southern Thailand, ARSA attacks against Myanmar, are caused by islamaphobia? That's a good one. If so, let me be the first to extend my sincere apologies to the poor victims of all of these islamic attacks. I had no idea that my warnings were actually the cause. What a wacky world we live in.

    Many of the muslims, in the south of Thailand, have fled the south of Thailand. I guess they must suffer Islamophobia.

    The West is hit with a bombing here, a shooting there, and another attack somewhere else. Many respond with a desire to wipe out the Middle East and/or Islam.

    The West, on the other hand, wipes out entire cities and villages, kills tens of thousands of "collaterals", and we label their resentment as "radical".

    What a wacky world we live in.

    Hi

    Islamophobia is not the cause of anything .Like any other phobia it is caused by an irrational fear of something usually unfounded. Like fear of dogs. heights. flying snake. But with research and correct data can be overcome if desired. Or at very least managed so you don't run in fear or want to kill every time you see a dog or snake.

    I have a phobia for snakes but I know that they are beneficial and most are harmless. Only a few are dangerous. For me to say Kill all snakes would be ludicrous.
