Iranian Lawmakers Call for Halt to 'Massacre,' 'Genocide'

The Burmese government refuses to recognize Rohingyas, who it claims are not natives and classifies as illegal migrants, although the Rohingya are said to be Muslim descendants of Persian, Turkish, Bengali, and Pathan origin.

Pleading for help for Rohingya Muslimjs

(TEHRAN) - The Iranian Parliament this week condemned the “massacre” of Muslims in Burma, and called on the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNHCHR) to take action. “The Human Rights Commission (of the Iranian Parliament) condemns the massacre and genocide (of Muslims) in Myanmar and asks the UNHCHR to enter the scene responsibly and call for a stop to the killings of the Muslims,” said a statement by the Iranian Parliament's Human Rights Commission issued on Tuesday.

The Burmese government refuses to recognize Rohingyas, who it claims are not natives and classifies as illegal migrants, although the Rohingya are said to be Muslim descendants of Persian, Turkish, Bengali, and Pathan origin, who migrated to Burma as early as the 8th century, the statement said.

We are not talking about Israel, we are talking about Iran

Editor: I think your use of 'they' is at the root of this.  Iran is trying to exist, Israel is looking for a way to start a war.  Iran has laws to protect Jews, whereas Israel has Jewish only roads and separate laws for Jews and non-Jews.  We defeated apartheid once, we will do it again.  Israel has hundreds of illegal nuclear warheads, Iran wants to have nuclear power, and its position is constantly misconstrued, constantly.  Israel has hijacked the Jewish interests and betrayed all who wish for peace.  And I am a person with many contacts in Israel, all day every day I receive their communication and they are good people, they hate Israel's theft of Palestinian land, they hate the Israeli warmongering toward Iran, they despise their name as Israeli citizens being ground into the mud.  What a crock it all is.  Leave Iran alone.

How ironic, they kill people every day because of their religion or doing anything which is forbidden by Sharia Law

Editor: Israel kills people every day.
