British Document from 1826 Establishes that Muslims are Longtime Inhabitants of BurmaTim King Salem-News.com
Report includes brand new video from inside a Myanmar detention camp for Rohingya Muslims.
(SACRAMENTO, CA) - The people of Burma are suffering because one side, even in this day and age, believes it can literally rid itself of an entire minority population.
The Buddhists here are in many cases, marauding killers and the Muslims are in danger of being wiped out. Those sill alive are mostly in detention camps as one Rohingya village after another has been burned.
With the backing of the government, the Rakhine Buddhist population is seeing many of its members acting out in a blood lust, laying waste to people who have always been neighbors.
Americans have had their nation for a little more than 200 years, and there is no question who this country is in the hands of.
So viewing 200 years as a benchmark, it seems that at least by U.S. standards, if we can prove that Muslim people lived in Burma two centuries ago or thereabouts, it should silence this ridiculous position of the Rakhine Buddhists there who claim the Rohingya Muslims are 'illegal immigrants from Bangladesh'.
An 1826 British government document on the cultures and inhabitants of Burma, today known as Myanmar, settles any lingering arguments over whether Muslims have lived here for hundreds of years.
The report is drafted for George Swinten Esquire, Secretary to Government in the Secret and Political Department, Fort William, the material begins with:
The confident author of the report states...
With plenty of references for their work, the authors note many details about the state of Burma in 1826 and they were given the country full accepted history up to that point in time and it is an incredible look back into time,
Just as it is today, Burma was the constant scene of insurgency and a hotbed for strife and political disagreement, people were waylaid unexpectedly and murder was constant.
Without question the importance of the Buddhist faith or Boodhism as it is referenced in this 1826 report, is noted and prominent, but there is never a point in this period of history where ethnic strife is problematic; tolerance for others actually seems higher in these days than in modern times.
The Smoking Gun
This proof of Muslim roots in Burmese culture is vivid and clear:

And then another listed source right after that that seems even more significant; remember this is 1826:
Sheikh,Soojah Kazee - An ArraCan Mussalman
All of the images you are seeing here and the video are totally exclusive and have not been seen by any member of the public until now.
This blatant religious genocide of Rohingya taking place right under the nose of the American leaders like Hillary Clinton and while the media sleeps at the wheel, is infuriating.
I don't have much to report at this point, but the article I wrote two days ago about the poor man who was 'tortured to death' brought the attention of a physician whose job is determining whether people have been physically tortured. (Tortured to Death in Burma - Extremely Graphic!) I will report more on that as it develops and in the meanwhile anyone with information please send it to our newsroom, my address is below.
While it seemed fairly obvious it was not clear and now it is tentatively confirmed that the man was a victim of torture and we reported yesterday that the jail in Sittwe where this is taking place is full of victims whose bodies are reportedly being disposed of in unmarked and undisclosed graves by the government.
Also from my contact who sent the photos and video:
