Myanmar: George Soros aids Islamist separatists via HRW?

Human rights organizations & the UN continue to ignore that the ARSA started the conflict, people from the Rakhine state in Myanmar are fleeing. Putting the sole blame on the Myanmar military, who were provoked into action when police outposts, & a military base were attacked by the ARSA, who were armed with automatic rifles, machetes, & improvised explosive devices. When human rights organizations put the sole blame of Myanmar security forces, they are effectively aiding Islamist terrorists in gaining legitimacy/international support. There has been a trend of using phony humanitarianism to market war to the masses, in the previous conflicts in Libya, & Syria. George Soros is said to be behind civil unrest in the US funding BLM, a group containing black supremacists, known for violently attacking white people, & vandalising property.

Note. Rohingya militants have a long history of burning things when they don’t get what they want:

Mar 1998 Some 64 Rohingyas are jailed after clashing with police and setting fire to part of the Kutupalong refugee camp in Bangladesh. The police raided the camp and arrested the militants who had seized control of the camp several days ago. (No Myanmar military in Bangladesh)

On 8 June 2012, Rohingyas started to burn Rakhine’s Buddhist and other ethnic houses after returning from Friday’s prayers in Maungdaw township. More than a dozen residents were killed in this riot by Rohingya Muslims.

A massive fire destroyed most of the Kandawgyi Palace in the early hours of Thursday morning, with at least two deaths reported at one of Rangoon’s most iconic hotels.

About 70 percent of the hotel is estimated to have been destroyed by the blaze, which began just after 3 a.m. A woman from Macao was also injured after she jumped from her third-floor room at the hotel as the fire raged.

After a failed Islamist separatist insurrection in the 90’s Nurul Islam fled to the UK, the former leader of Arakan Rohingya Islamic Front terrorist group, is now working closely with human rights organizations.

Refugees, whose numbers have swelled since fighting late last year in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, also report masked men roaming the dark streets of the two camps in Kutupalong at night.

Bangladesh police and aid workers say a struggle for control of supplies to the camps is behind the violence.

“They beat me and my sister and dragged him out of the house,” Ankis told Reuters, as her 7- and 3-year-old children slept by her on the newly cemented floor.

“The kidnappers called me from his number and threatened to kill me too. I‘m also getting threats in the name of al-Yaqin.”

She was referring to the militant group Harakah al-Yaqin, or “Faith Movement”, whose attacks on Myanmar border police posts in October prompted a security crackdown in which troops have been accused of murder and rape of Rohingya civilians.

Police say it is unclear whether the insurgent group, which now wants to be known as the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army, was involved in the violence in the camps or whether others were using its name to intimidate refugees.

The group, whose leader spoke to Reuters in an interview in March, did not respond to an email seeking comment. reuters.com

Jihadi conspiracy to assassinate Bangladesh PM foiled

An attempt on Bangladesh Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina’s life, inspired by the way Indira Gandhi was assassinated by her own bodyguards, was foiled four weeks ago by her loyalists and top counter-terrorism officers in Dhaka.

Intercepts suggested that six to seven personnel of the Special Security Force (SSF), which guards the Prime Minister of Bangladesh, were preparing to attack Hasina on August 24. Their plan was to attack her as soon as she would step out of her office for an evening stroll.

Four independent sources, including two in Dhaka and two in the external intelligence apparatus of India dealing with Bangladesh, confirmed the development.

A top official in Bangladesh’s National Security Intelligence told News18 that the attack was being coordinated with Jamaat-ul-Mujahideen Bangladesh (JMB) militants. According to the plan, JMB jihadis were supposed to trigger a series of explosions around Hasina’s office to divert the attention of the other security guards, and to provide an escape route to the assassins.

“The plan was modelled on the assassination of Indira Gandhi. It was supposed to be an inside job performed by recalcitrant bodyguards with the outside support from jihadis,” another top intelligence official working closely with Bangladesh PMO told News 18.

JMB, an internationally recognized terror group, has taken responsibility for many bomb blasts in Bangladesh and aims to replace democratically-elected government with Islamic State.

The plan was foiled after a joint team of Indian and Bangladeshi intelligence officers intercepted the communication between JMB militants and the rogue SSF guards.

As soon as the conversation around the conspiracy was intercepted, PM Hasina was advised to stay put at a location outside her office in Dhaka, where she had gone for a personal meeting. Following this, her loyal guards formed an inner ring around her. The rogue men were nabbed right after this, paving the way for Hasina to return safely to her office.

“The whole operation was discreet. We wanted to catch every last person involved in this,” a top official in Dhaka said.

According to sources, the suspects are still being interrogated by Bangladeshi authorities.

News18’s request for comment from Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Dhaka through the Bangladeshi High Commission in Delhi didn’t elicit any response.

A spokesperson of the Ministry of Home Affairs in New Delhi said the issue pertains to Bangladesh and declined to comment further.

This is said to be the 11th assassination attempt on PM Hasina since she took charge in January 2009.

Prime Minister Indira Gandhi was assassinated by two members of her security detail on October 31, 1984 as she walked from her residence to office in New Delhi.

In the attempt on Prime Miniter Hasina’s life, Pakistani spy agency Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI) is suspected to be among the main conspirators of the attack. “It all began when ISI’s Brigadier Ashfaq, in-charge of eastern operations, met a top opposition leader from Bangladesh in London two months ago,” said one of the intelligence officials in Dhaka.

The Bangladeshi intelligence is closely monitoring two major general-level officers of SSF, who also met the same opposition leader in London.

According to the sources, these SSF officials made a phone call to a top officer in the ISI’s Operations Directorate, which suggested finalisation of a plan to create large-scale disorder in Bangladesh.

Indian and Bangladeshi intelligence agencies had earlier intercepted communications between ISI’s Brigadier Ashfaq and Hafiz Tohar, chief of the military wing of Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), a group that is sai to be carrying out attacks in the interests of the Rohingya refugees.

In these tapes, Ashfaq is heard asking Tohar to mount multiple attacks on Burmese security forces right after former UN secretary-general Kofi Annan had presented the Rakhine Commission report to Aung San Suu Kyi and Myanmar president Htin Kyaw on August 24.

Myanmar news agency Mizzima, in a report, published the content of the two calls from Ashfaq to Tohar and one from ISIS spokesman Al Amin to Tohar on August 23 and 24.

According to intelligence officers in Dhaka, ISI was working on a pincer plan to create unrest in the Bangladesh-Myanmar border region by assassinating PM Hasina. A red alert has been issued across Bangladesh to guard against possible attempts to trigger communal violence, particularly in south-east Bangladesh where thousands of Rohingya refugees are living in temporary camps. news18.com

Who are the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army?

The Rohingya insurgency is starting to gain traction.

Pogroms and low-level anti-Muslim violence erupted in 2012 during Myanmar’s democratic transition. In large part this was allowed to fester because the international community was trying to support the new democratic government of Aung San Suu Kyi.

It was no surprise that after years of systematic human rights abuses, including the denial of citizenship rights or any other legal protections, and with the government limiting the ability of Rohingya people to work or to have food and medicine coming in, that a full-on insurgency broke out.

The insurgency was nascent for much of 2016 and the first half of 2017. It began as Harakah al-Yaqin (HaY), led by Attullah Abu Ammar Jununi, who was born in Pakistan and raised in Saudi Arabia before he returned home to lead the struggle.

The group publicly refers to itself as the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA). Low-level attacks began to occur on a more sustained basis in 2016. Much of the violence in Rakhine state was perpetrated by government-backed vigilantes, as state security forces did little to curtail them.

But ARSA was clearly responsible for some of the violence. And, very clearly, it seemed to provoke heavy-handed responses. In October 2016, ARSA, armed with machetes and other primitive weapons, staged attacks on police posts.

The government responded with pogroms, including attacks on civilians and arson attacks in Rohingya villages. The United Nations estimates violence in October and November 2016 led to about 87,000 Rohingya refugees to cross into southeastern Bangladesh, where about 400,000 had settled previously.

Earlier this month, two days after U.N. Special Representative Kofi Annan issued his report on the Myanmar government’s alleged mishandling of the 11 million Rohingya, about 150 ARSA militants attacked 24 to 30 police outposts in Rakhine state. ARSA claims the attacks were pre-emptive and done in self-defense.

Those attacks were a tactical failure: about 77 militants were killed, compared to only a dozen police, in the fighting. But the attacks were not meant to be tactical successes. They were meant to be a strategic victory.

ARSA knew all too well that the Myanmar military (Tatmadaw) could respond only one way: with an extremely heavy-handed “clearance operation” and total disregard for human rights. By Aug. 28, the death toll reached at least 104.

In the days after, thousands of refugees crossed into Bangladesh, with an additional 20,000 stuck in no man’s land along the border. Earlier, about 6,000 refugees, mainly women and children came under fire from the Tatmadaw as they tried to cross the frontier.

Human rights monitors witnessed Rohingya villages being set on fire. Human Rights Watch reported that in the four days following the Aug. 25 attacks, the number of villages burned down was significantly larger than the number burned last October and November. rfa.org

ARSA leader Ata Ullah was born in Karachi, Pakistan to a (Bangladeshi) migrant father, who claims to have had fled the religious persecution in Rakhine State in Myanmar (also known as Arakan, Burma). At an early age, Ullah’s family moved to Mecca, Saudi Arabia, where he was enrolled in an Islamic school.

It is possible that the ARSA leader trained with Libya rebels, but those reports can not be confirmed.

Freedom fighter or curse? The man behind the Rohingya insurgency

On 27 August 2017, ARSA insurgents were accused of killing six Hindus. According to the State Counselor’s office, twelve Hindu families on a business trip in Myinlut, Maungdaw Township were returning to the district capital of Maungdaw, when they accidentally wandered into the conflict zone. The families fled into the District Court Building (which was still under construction) in an attempt to seek shelter from the fighting, but when they entered the building they were allegedly shot by ARSA insurgents already inside. The incident left two Hindu men, one woman and three children dead and two women seriously injured. The victims were sent to the Maungdaw Hospital, while six others arrived at the Four-Mile camp at 6:00 AM and left for Buthidaung where their relatives were residing.

A Hindu woman from Rakhine state: “Myanmar people kidnapped by Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), so I escaped to Bangladesh”.

In a statement issued by her office on Facebook on Wednesday, Suu Kyi said the government had “already started defending all the people in Rakhine in the best way possible” and warned against misinformation that could mar relations with other countries.

She referred to tweets of images of killings posted by Turkey’s deputy prime minister that he later deleted because they were not even from Myanmar.

“She said that kind of fake information which was inflicted on the deputy prime minister was simply the tip of a huge iceberg of misinformation calculated to create a lot of problems between different countries and with the aim of promoting the interests of the terrorists,” the social media statement said. news.com.au
