In 2017 thousands of Buddhist nationalists, organizing on Facebook, raided Rohingya villages, burned them to the ground, burning elderly, disabled and young children to death, and hacking the rest to death with machetes and swords.

Satellite imagery shows village after village utterly razed.

It's a full on complete genocide going on there right now.

Fleeing villages were machine gunned to death.

Those that resisted were hacked to pieces.

Those infirm, elderly or too young died in the fires.

Aren't there claims that:

The Rohingya Muslims are illegal immigrants with no right to be in Myanmar in the first place.

The Rohingya Muslims attacked 30 police posts and an army base.

"The Rohingya Muslims are illegal immigrants with no right to be in Myanmar in the first place."

Yes, that is the official Buddhist position.

However, Rohingyas are a tribe that's been in the areas they are in for thousands of years.

It's the same claim Israel makes that Palestinians are all recent illegal immigrants when the fact is that nearly all of them have ancestors from Palestine going back at least 2000 years. Which you can not say for any of the Jews other than the very small community of Palestine Jews who have slightly different beliefs and are becoming extinct.
