ARTICLE SHOWS THE INGRAINED,

MANIPULATIVE, DEMONIZING BIAS OF


MYANMAR’S FRONTIER MAGAZINE
by Rick Heizman, May 11, 2019

Frontier Magazine claims, and wants you to believe, that Myanmar is not a likely target for
Islamic extremism - which just recently targeted a similar Buddhist majority country, Sri
Lanka, which similarly has a Muslim minority. A squad of suicide bombers, targeted
Christians in churches on the 2nd most holy day of the Christian faith, Easter Sunday, and
they targeted any non-Muslims in several top hotels, killed around 300 people, wounding
nearly 1000.

It is extremely disturbing that the author, Jared Downing, who wrote, ‘After the Sri Lanka
bombings: why Myanmar won’t be next’ and the publisher, Frontier Magazine, so recklessly
want to minimize the Islamic terrorist threat, that people (that is, non-Muslims of any kind,
and even in many cases Muslims themselves) have to live with almost anywhere on earth.
The terrorists will most often strike in an unexpected and unprepared location! And,
casualties can be high when people have been lured into a reckless mentality of ‘nothing to
worry about, it won’t happen here.’

WILL JARED DOWNING AND FRONTIER MAGAZINE ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY WHEN A


MAJOR TERRORIST ACT HAPPENS IN MYANMAR? Not IF, but, WHEN it happens.

It has happened in every country around Myanmar: India, Bangladesh, Thailand, Indonesia,
Philippines, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, China….

And, even more sickeningly disturbing is the insidious way that this article, manipulatively
distorts, makes up, and reverses facts
for the purpose of demonizing
Buddhists, and attributing ALL blame
and fault upon them.

1
Example: The article says, “Incidents such as the anti-Muslim riots of 2012-2014….” WAIT A
MINUTE! That is fake news, deliberately reversing facts that any person on earth can see (of
course the Muslims and their fans such as Frontier will not affirm the obvious). The opening
attacks of the June 8, 2012 violence were prepared and premeditated attacks up and down
the entire state of Rakhine by the Bengali Muslims as depicted in this photo from video of
the launch of a Jihad as thousands of Muslims poured out of the Central Mosque in
Maungdaw town and rampaged through the streets catching and killing Buddhists, and
setting places on fire.

Downing quotes from Anthony Davis, a rabidly biased Bangkok-based security analyst, “in
both cases [Sri Lanka and Myanmar] we are dealing with Theravada Buddhist societies that
are often intolerant of Islam…” WHAT THE HECK!?!? Of course, Downing found a soulmate
in Davis, they share the same sickly bias and hatred. That is pure hate speech! If the world
were to be ruled by Theravada (or any other) Buddhists versus a world ruled by Sunni (or
Shiite) Muslims - which would be infinitely more tolerant, harmonious, and compassionate?
Are Buddhists hijacking or trying to hijack airplanes? Are Buddhists killing gays, and women
who don’t cover themselves ‘properly’? Do Buddhists throw acid on the faces of women for
being too ‘Western’? Are Buddhists stockpiling weapons and explosives for killing infidels?

Who is intolerant? (Not all, but very many) Muslims are brainwashed by the Imams in the
mosques into fully believing the intolerance, hatred, and supremacy of the Quran - AND -
there is no equivalency in the Buddhist Scriptures. The Quran is the most hateful book I have
ever read (if you don’t like what I just said, read the Quran) and the Buddhist scriptures are
fascinating tales of morality, the enigmas of life, and wisdom at its finest.

Downing quotes again from the rabidly biased Davis, “In the Burmese case, you are dealing
with a security intelligence apparatus that is congenitally suspicious of Muslims; it is in their
DNA.” WOW! Davis, and Downing imply that as your DNA is unchangeable, so are the
Burmese people - they can never change their pre-destined dislike of Muslims - that is what
those shallow idiots think! Once again, they reverse the fundamental truths like this: It is clear
that Islam, since it started 1500 years ago, has, in essence, created DNA in (most) Muslims,
who through the centuries have raided, fought, invaded, conquered, slaughtered and
obliterated nearly every Buddhist culture it has reached. The Arakanese in Rakhine State, are
one of the few Buddhist cultures that the Muslims still have not defeated.

Davis then stuns us with this impudent and insidious construct, “They [Muslims in Myanmar]
are aware that they are potentially only minutes away, one incident away from pogroms
[genocidal slaughters], any terrorist attack on a Buddhist temple could easily trigger a
pogrom.” WOAH, EVERYBODY CALM DOWN!!! Downing, Davis, and Frontier want you to
believe the fake news that they push on you, that the Buddhist population of the nation of
Myanmar could explode against the entire population of pure angelic innocent lovable
Muslims, if a Muslim so much as picked his nose near a Buddhist temple! BE SUPER ULTRA
CAREFUL AROUND BUDDHISTS - DON’T EVEN BREATHE, SNEEZE OR FART - THEY
MIGHT JUST ERUPT INTO AN UNSTOPPABLE FRENZY!!!!

By the way, there was NO backlash against Myanmar’s Muslims in the wake of the huge
terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.

By the way, there was NO backlash against Myanmar’s Muslims in the wake of the huge
terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.

(I’m repeating this for the sake of Downing, Davis and Frontier)

By the way, there was NO backlash against Myanmar’s Muslims in the wake of the huge
terrorist attacks in Sri Lanka on Easter Sunday.

What would have happened if a squad of Buddhists or Christians planned, trained, and
attacked a bunch of mosques, killing hundreds of Muslims?

Jared Downing - please write an article about the relationship between Muslims and Hitler,
and the mutual interests, goals, and agenda
that they had with each other…

Recommendation for Myanmar authorities:


Throw the foreigners of Frontier out of the
country for fomenting hate against Buddhists,
and Buddhism, and aiding and abetting terror.
