    I think it shows how easily a motivated hate group can change a society.
    As with Isis and terrorism, actual violence and large terrorist attacks are only required on a fleeting basis to cement the fear.
    The constant smaller snipes, propaganda and conditioning of the young and vulnerable easily breed a full blown movement and garner support and the fear they hope to create....imo

    Nothing new (to me) in the article - Myanmar's hatred of Muslims (especially the Rohingya) is very deeply entrenched, so far so that even Suu Kyi knows to not panda to the West and make a stand on the issue.

    Nothing will change attitudes in the foreseeable future - the risk of having Bangladesh pour into Myanmar is a very real threat - a few decades down the road India too may be treating the Bangladeshis in similar fashion.
    Its My Life .....!
