The Rohingya Revisited
Nearly a year ago, I wrote an article outlining reasons why the ICC should take action in Myanmar (also known as Burma) in order to stop continued religious and ethnic violence towards the Rohingya. During 2013, not surprisingly, the anti-Muslim violence in Myanmar has continued. In fact, violence has spread beyond targeting the Rohingya and against the larger Muslim population. Although, the majority displaced from the violence are still the Rohingya.
Holocaust museum highlights Myanmar’s Rohingya

Washington's Holocaust Memorial Museum is highlighting the plight of Myanmar's beleaguered Rohingya Muslims this week.
An exhibition of stark, black-and-white images of the stateless Rohingya is being projected at night onto the museum's external walls.
American photographer Greg Constantine's work combines portraits of Rohingya with pictures of the scorched settlements they were forced to flee after a deadly outbreak of sectarian violence last summer that left more than 100,000 confined to camps.
Myanmar's failure to prevent clashes between minority Muslims and majority Buddhists has dented the international reputation of the government of Myanmar President Thein Sein, who has won praise for introducing democratic reforms.
The museum commemorates the genocide against the Jews in World War II. Part of its mission is to prevent further atrocities around the world.
