An estimated 270,000 Rohingya have sought refuge in Bangladesh over the past two weeks, the U.N. refugee agency said on Friday, announcing a dramatic jump in numbers fleeing violence in neighboring Myanmar’s Rakhine State.
The latest flight of Rohingya began two weeks ago after Rohingya insurgents attacked security force posts in Myanmar’s Rakhine State. That triggered an army counteroffensive in which at least 400 people were killed.
Protests against the treatment of the Rohingya were held in several countries, including Muslim-majority Bangladesh, Indonesia and Malaysia. Others were held outside Myanmar’s embassies in Tokyo and Manila. (Reuters)

You are not going to see Muslims protesting the treatment of infidels in THEIR countries. Why is that?

Christian Karens didn't have the UN or the world rallying around them as they were being butchered. The Muslims have co-existed peacefully in this region. There's a faction group of Rohygina that are causing this unrest, demanding their people have their own state following Islamic laws.

Where are the protests about the war in Yemen waged by the Saudis for no reason? Saudis are bombing and killing innocents in Yemen. They can kill their own people and no body even talks about it. No tweets, no posts on Facebook, no protests. What a hypocrites!!!

We keep letting these Muslims in our country it will be hell here very soon!!! Trouble and death follow them everywhere because they do not assimilate and if your not one of them you don't deserve to live and must be killes and they sacrifice their own to create these situations to come rere in some cases!! If you want to see a big war and many deaths in the homeland keep on bringing them in!!! There are other ways to help for those that feel the need!!

What a great opportunity for Indonesia to send boats to save their Muslim Brothers. Why waste time protesting. Ask Saudi or Qatar for money,they have plenty. Or do what? Expect the West to save your Muslim azzes. I am sure they would all like to go to Australia as refugees. Tough nuggies. Australia knows better.

Muslims fighting buddhists in Myanmar, Muslims fighting Jews in Israel, Muslims fighting Hindus in Kashmir, Muslims fighting Christians in CAR and killing them across the globe, Muslims fighting Muslims all over the place. Can anyone spot the common denominator?
