Letter from an sincere Burmese Buddhist

I watched it today and have my thoughts and translation below: This is definitely Hotel Rwanda.
Here are probably several thousand-strong throng of Buddhists – Rakhine, Bama, what have you – which were stopped on their way, presumably to a target Muslim village outside Thandwe (or formerly Sandoway).What the organizers were shouting was, “We are to defend our Buddhist faith”, as far as the megaphoned voices were audible.
The Buddhist mob’s INTENT was articulated, in no uncertain term:
He watched this video while translating some statements.
WE ARE HERE TO BURN DOWN THE (Kalar’s) NIGGER’S VILLAGE AND TO REMOVE ALL “THE GUESTS” FROM OUR LAND.
WE URGE YOU, OUR SECURITY TROOPS, EARNESTLY TO COLLABORATE WITH US IN THIS NATIONAL DEED.
Watching this 2-minute-clips gave me chill down my spine.
This is the kind of mob that senselessly murdered a 94-year old Kaman Muslim women.
Ninety percent of the people, including senior Western diplomats who should know better, hold the mistaken view, or dishonestly argue, the term genocide does NOT apply because there is no smoking-gun ‘proof’ or document that says either the Buddhist society or the State – non-state actors can be charged with genocide, according to the Genocide Conventions – has explicitly stated the intent to wipe out every single Muslim, Rohingya or otherwise, from the face of Burma’s soil.
But it will not be called by its proper name because Western liberal democracies are equally immoral in their conduct of foreign policies – no different from China or Russia or the world’s largest Islamic country of Indonesia.
Suu Kyi will not say a word about it because it will be ruin her presidential ambitions. In addition, she keeps telling international lawyers in her circle she wants ‘reconciliation’ – not retribution.  Calling the unfolding campaign of terror genocide will not advance her goal of ‘reconciliation’ with her daddy’s neo-Fascist Army.
The regime lies most blatantly; it says one thing in English language and to the UN and to the press.  It disseminates, exploits and mobilizes anti-Muslim discourses once they are in public circulation. – Agencies
