Burma: Rohingya Muslim terrorists kill 71 people in a night of terror

(Naypyidaw) For a while now the liberal world has been shedding tears over the treatment of Muslims inside Burma, which has seen the usually peaceful followers of Buddha say enough is enough and treat Muslims exactly the same as they treat everybody else.

Which is why on Friday evening, 20 police posts on the border with Bangladesh were attacked by hundreds of armed Muslims, resulting in the deaths of over 71 people of which 12 were security personnel. In return, 59 Islamic terrorists were killed. The violence comes during a build-up of Burmese troops to the border area after reports of murders by shadowy groups and an exodus of refugees across the border to Bangladesh.

Despite years of persecution, the Rohingya have largely eschewed violence. But a terrorist group emerged last October under the banner of the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA), which claims to be leading an insurgency based in the remote May Yu mountain range bordering Bangladesh.
