In the Name of God, the Compassionate the Merciful

طسم ﴿1﴾ تِلْكَ آيَاتُ الْكِتَابِ الْمُبِينِ ﴿2﴾ نَتْلُو عَلَيْكَ مِنْ نَبَإِ مُوسَى وَ فِرْعَوْنَ بِالْحَقِّ لِقَوْمٍ يُؤْمِنُونَ ﴿3﴾ إِنَّ فِرْعَوْنَ عَلاَ فِي الْأَرْضِ وَ جَعَلَ أَهْلَهَا شِيَعاً يَسْتَضْعِفُ طَائِفَةً مِنْهُمْ يُذَبِّحُ أَبْنَاءَهُمْ وَ يَسْتَحْيِي نِسَاءَهُمْ إِنَّهُ كَانَ مِنَ الْمُفْسِدِينَ ﴿4﴾ وَ نُرِيدُ أَنْ نَمُنَّ عَلَى الَّذِينَ اسْتُضْعِفُوا فِي الْأَرْضِ وَ نَجْعَلَهُمْ أَئِمَّةً وَ نَجْعَلَهُمُ الْوَارِثِينَ ﴿5﴾

“Ta. Sin. Mim. These are verses of the Book that makes (things) clear. We rehearse to thee some of the story of Moses and Pharaoh in Truth, for people who believe. Truly Pharaoh elated himself in the land and broke up its people into sections, depressing a small group among them: their sons he slew, but he kept alive their females: for he was indeed a maker of mischief. And We desired to bestow a favor upon those who were deemed weak in the land, and to make them the Imams, and to make them the heirs.”

Myanmar is a land of repeated incidents of oppressions on Muslims. When I traveled to Myanmar nineteen years ago, I saw a people who had been treated as captives by Marxists and Maoists for nearly eighty years. Then they had just set themselves free from the bloody claws of the hangmen and they were enthusiastic to see new faces and foreigners coming to their land. However, most of the travelers to this land in those merry days of freedom were Zionists who were coming to the cheap Myanmar to buy lands and extend themselves in this country which had been left eighty years behind the rest of the world.

I saw Myanmar (Burmese) Muslims and ardent followers of Ahlul-Bait (A.S.) who had protected their faith in the most difficult circumstances. The Iranian mosque (which was known as Mughal Mosque because the Mongols had gone from Iran to Myanmar) were still unsullied, vibrant and full of lovers of the Ahlul-Bayt (A.S.) who were proud of their Iranian roots and considering themselves as Myanmar nationals.  Although respectable and esteemed they seem to be, in the midst of their lives they were echoing the bitter memories of the past with their tearful eyes. At times, the notorious Red Khmers made their girls and women to become naked and they kept their hair long to cover themselves…

In those fresh days of freedom, everything was so calm, lively and hopeful with no one thinking that the immigrant Zionists would once against turn this country into a blood bath for Muslims at the hands of Buddhists.

The Jewish project to make use of the ability of Eastern religions is not restricted to Myanmar. The Jewish minority in the world have annexed themselves to the mammoth Hindu and Buddhist populations here and there (in Asia). They have, by dint of their economic power and by making use of widespread poverty among these people, spread themselves among them and have even helped some of the Jewish personalities attain the spiritual leadership of Hindu and Buddhist sects making them temples in India and other countries.

Today, the Jew’s hand has come out of the sleeves of Burmese Buddhists to avenge the ‘freedom seeking’ of Muslims in Islamic countries upon the poor Myanmar Muslims and to conduct punishment of anti-Zionist movements in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya, Morocco, Bahrain, Lebanon, Syria and Hejaz on the oppressed people of Burma. It is not a matter of surprise to see the international communities and propaganda agencies being silent. These agencies are mainly under the economic and political influence of Zionism. Unless they are compelled, they are not making the smallest move against the Zionism or in the interest of Muslims. At times, if they are defending Muslims in a place, they believe it is useful for Zionism and they are supporting the Syrian insurgents for the same reason.

Today, it is obligatory on all Muslims to speak out against the crimes committed on Muslims in Myanmar and they should make the international communities and agencies, which are under the influence of Zionism, to break their silence.

Today, all the international organizations and news networks which are silent in the face of these crimes are responsible for the pure bloods spilled mercilessly on the ground in Myanmar.

Muslims stretch out their hands invoking the Worshipped and praying to Him for the advent of the Savior of the World to ill this world which is fraught with injustice and tyranny with justice and equity – God willing.
