Re: QUERY> Burma crisis, Buddhist crisis

Hello and many thanks.

Here on this list, what I was asking originally was about whether any Buddhists in Burma are opposing and debating the genocidal rhetoric of the ultranationalist fellow Buddhists who have been promoting the expulsion and killing of Muslim minority people in their country. But seems there is no such debate, at least not openly, and I was guessing in conclusion that this must be because most people in Burma now, including Buddhists and Buddhist clergy, if there are anyone opposed, they are afraid to speak against the prevailing atmosphere.

Re: QUERY> Burma crisis, Buddhist crisis

Hello and many thanks to Dr. Paul Fuller for suggestions, and to the Ven. Pandita, for very valuable nuance on the situation of monks in Burma. ... but, to me, what is still missing, it seems, is information on whether there is any debate within buddhism in Burma about what now seems to be a dominant genocide-supporting incitement rhetoric by Burmese Buddhists, actively supporting the dramatic escalation since August, in effect enabling the mass ethnic cleansing campaign by the Burmese army which is the most dramatic in all of this history of discrimination.
