From me: The Dalai Lama fled Tibet when China invaded. He still exists, because he fled from violence. And thankfully, he exists to promote peace as he tries to do so here in this other article at "Lion's Roar" about the Myanmar crisis: https://www.lionsroar.com/dalai-lama-condemns-alleged-ethn…/
Rohingyas are fleeing the violence; they need to flee; the U.S. should help them flee. If the Myanmar government cannot stop the killing of Rohingyas the way the Dalai Lama, Malala Yousafzai, and Archbishop Desmond Tutu have urged, then help these Rohingyas to flee and stay alive.
I am unclear as to why "Rohingya militants besieged government security posts in late August." This article at CNN http://www.cnn.com/2017/09/28/asia/myanmar-un-security-council/index.html states that they besieged posts on the border. Were the militants trying to help other Rohingyas cross the border to flee? Is the government not letting the Rohingyas leave? It also states that the Myanmar government then forced Rohingyas from their homes. Where do they go, then? Are they being put into camps if they are not allowed to cross the border? Is that why Rohingya militants besieged the government in late August? Or is it as the government states, that the Rohingyas are terrorists?
I asked a Buddhist monk in Cleveland years ago, who was brought in by a Buddhist Nun, “What do you do when a person, even a family member, continually hurts you?” He said, “You run away.” He was right. I can’t change the way the person deals with me, but I can choose to help myself by getting away from them. Isn’t that the same thing as “turning the other cheek?” Instead of besieging the person who is persecuting you, you turn the other cheek and then get away from them.
The United States and the U.N. need to help them flee. Rohingya militants stop besieging the government. They will retaliate; it’s proven. U.N. rescue the Rohingyas.
