Why does everyone seem to hate these people? Certainly no country wants them even on a temporary basis and clearly Myanmar are not prepared to let them stay.

""Everyone'' does not hate these people. They have been living in Burma for centuries yet are despised by their neighbors. Race hate, Happy Farang, an unpleasant human trait.
How sad is this...

Ed, if you read my article it does not reflect my views. The fact is their "own" country does not want them and neither does any other country in the region. I do not make the rules therefore please apologise for calling me racist.

Huh? If I wanted to call you a racist, I would say, ''Happy Farang, you are a racist.'' Please apologise for accusing me of calling you a racist.
I, like Happy Farang, also fail to understand where this hatered towards the Rohingya comes from. I need to do more research but not much info around.

A Burmese diplomat in Hong Kong famously described the Rohingya as ''looking like ogres'' or words to that effect. It seems most Burmese struggle with difference and tolerance. Sad for them, really.
"Race hate, Happy Farang, an unpleasant human trait" You are referring to others, not me as it would be incorrect to do so.

The words are plain, Happy Farang. I am not responsible for your misinterpretations. You make them often and I'm very, very weary of correcting them. Find yourself a chat room, please.
You guys are too much grow up, the fact the people are being mistreated and murdered concerns us all.
