Our Recent Work in Burma, August 2017
Moonlight Humanity team in the USA and in Burma is dedicating to work in Burma for the Burmese Muslim. We have insider and trust group in Burma and USA because our board member is Burmese. We were about to reach Rohingya people For Qurban 2017 but after that the team is not allow to go inside the Rohingya Muslim. The genocide in this Rohingya was so bad. However, we are still able to help other Muslim in other part of Burma that suffer from discrimination because of their religion. Please go to our main page for donation. Thank you.
A summary of what is going on in Burma Burma is located near China and India. There is a Muslim nation called Rohingya in Burma. They have another name, the Myanmar. The country is ruled by a Buddhist army. Muslims there represent about 10 percent of the population. Muslims there are subject to extermination and displacement. This story is not new. This crime began a long time ago. In 1784, a Buddhist king called "Bodawpaya" feared the spread of Islam in the region. From then on he began to persecute the Muslims. Buddhists have committed the worst crimes against them, such as burning children, killing, torture, and other forms of persecution because their only sin is that they are Muslim, nothing more!! When the Muslims of Burma tried to escape, no Muslim country was willing to accept them. The only option they had was to die at sea or from hunger, fear, and intimidation. Why do I tell you this painful story? Because we will be held accountable and we will be asked about our Muslim brothers tortured in a land and we did not support them!! If someone asks me what can I do for them?! How can I help them? I will say: It is very simple.
These brothers in humanity and religion... no one knows anything about them. The media does not speak about them and their suffering. The simplest thing you can offer them is to let others know their story and to feel their suffering. Know that all the problems you have in your life - I swear by Allah - are nothing compared to the calamitiy of the people of Burma. They have been abandoned by the Islamic world and the human world. They resemble the people of Al-Ukhdood (Surat Al-Burooj) Spread their cause and make the world know it and know what is happening to them. This is a stain on the forehead of all of humanity and on the Islamic world in particular. Pray for them a lot in your prayers, in private, and at all times: that Allah removes his calamity from them and brings His anger upon the tyrant killers, and doing this is the weakest level of faith! The Messenger of Allaah (may the peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: "The believers in their love, mercy and sympathy, towards one another are like one body, if one limb complains, the rest of the body joins it, staying up at night with a fever." O oppressed people of Burma, O oppressed Muslims around the world, Allah is sufficient for us and for you, and He is the best trustee. Oh Allah, we entrust you with our brothers everywhere.
Dr. Mohammed Al-Arefe 4 Million Muslim in Burma and 500 thousand are in Rohingya, Concentration Camp Burma News. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVvntQNKZa0 Babies and children have been slaughtered with knives during a military campaign on Rohingya Muslims in Burma, according to a series of accounts in a disturbing UN report. An eight-month-old, a five-year-old and a six-year-old were all reportedly stabbed to death in their own homes during so-called "area clearance operations" by Burmese security services, which are reported to have killed hundreds of people since 9 October, in a Rohingya-dominated area in northwest Rakhine State. The chilling accounts, described by the UN as "revolting", are outlined in a flash report from the United Nations Human Rights office. The report, which has been released early because of its alarming nature, is based on interviews with more than 200Rohingya refugees who have recently entered Bangladesh after fleeing from violence they faced in Rakhine.

One mother recounted in the report how her five-year-old daughter was trying to protect her from rape when a man "took out a long knife and killed her by slitting her throat", while in another case an eight-month-old baby was reportedly killed while his mother was gang-raped by five security officers. A 14-year-old girl also told of how, after being raped by soldiers, she saw her mother beaten to death and her two sisters, aged eight and 10, killed with knives. The Burmese Government has repeatedly denied allegations of persecution against the Rohingya minority, rejecting any evidence as "propaganda" and arguing that police beatings were ordinary in many countries.
During the crackdown in Rakhine, armed members of Burma's security services are said to have rounded up Rohingya men and taken them away in vehicles, before then going from house to house gang-raping or sexually harassing women, and sometimes killing children who cried or tried to protect their mothers. In another case, recounted by a number of refugees in separate interviews, the army of Rakhine villagers locked an entire family, including elderly and disabled people, inside a house and set it on fire, killing them all.

See what we can do?" Other attacks against Rohingya Muslims by Burma's security services include brutal beatings and disappearances. The vast majority of those interviewed said they had witnessed killings, and almost half reported having a family member who was killed, as well as family members who were missing. More than half of the 101 women interviewed said they had been victims of rape and other forms of sexual violence. Linnea Arvidsson, one of the four UN workers who interviewed Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh and drew up the report, told The Independent she had never encountered such a "shocking" situation.

"It's shocking. I've never encountered a situation like this, where you do 204 interviews and every single person you speak with has a traumatic story, whether their house was burnt, they've been raped or a relative was killed or taken away," said Ms Arvidsson. "In many cases we were the first people, other than their close family, who these people had spoken to. They would break down. Women and even grown men would be crying. "The women cried when they spoke of being raped, or seeing their children being killed. Men cried when they related how their houses had been burnt, and their concerns over how they would now be able to support their families. "It's very rare for there to be such a high prevalence of violence. And when you think we spoke to just 204 people of a total of 88,000 who have fled the area, it's really scary to think of the total numbers." The attacks on Rohingya in Rakhine were triggered last October when nine police officers were killed in attacks on posts along the border with Bangladesh, and the security services launched an intense crackdown on the Rohingya population to track down the insurgents behind the incident. But the violence follows a long-standing pattern of violations and abuses, systematic discrimination and policies of exclusion and marginalisation against the Rohingya that have been in place for decades in northern Rakhine.

Ms Arvidsson added that the violent attacks against men, women and children were more than systematic operations in the search to find the insurgents responsible for the police killings in October, inferring that ethnic discrimination was also behind the slaughter of babies. "To say these are area clearance operations looking for insurgents who killed police officers doesn't make any sense. To kill babies, toddlers and young children and rape women when you are trying to find insurgents doesn't make sense," she told The Independent. "The testimonies we gathered pointed at two intents as the motivation of this persecution: the collective punishment following humiliation over the attacks against police officers in October, and the ethnic and racial element – the disdain for this minority. "You don't slaughter eight-month-old babies because a police officer was attacked. It's because you just don't consider the child as human."
