"...About 71 people have died in more than a week of clashes, the official said, in addition to 10 Muslims killed on June 3 by a Buddhist mob seeking revenge for the rape and murder of a local woman -- the apparent spark for the unrest..."

Well, you have to realize, to a muslim, it's not rape if you are having sex with an infidel woman against her will. Even if you have to beat her to death to have intercourse with her.

I know! And we have to respect cultural traditions of all kinds.
i just have difficulties to chose right side in this particular situation and not to be offensive to any cultural traditions...:cool:

The conflict seems to be as much ethnic as it is religious -- but I have to admit that the thought above also occurred to me. You're going a ways when you're able to inflame a bunch of Buddhists to deadly violence.

Sad, but that the news of this has reached us is a sign of how much more liberalized Burma over the last 3 years has become.
