But but but Buddhism is the very pinnacle of pacifism and enlightenment. All those Hollywood stars and feel-good books told me so!!!1

Now if we could just get Bryan Fischer to convert to Buddhism…

Life would be so sweet if we could all think in such simplistic terms.

Aung San Suu Kyi’s silence on the issue of the Rohingya is just terrible. Really a huge blot on her human rights record.

She’s decided that keeping her power and popularity with Burma is more important than honesty on this matter. When she was under house arrest she’d likely have felt differently, but sadly she has proven to be like most people on this point, unwilling to risk the loss of the power she’s worked very hard and suffered to win.

To keep the focus on the story, I’ve separated out the following bit of maudlin introspection from my main point:

But I find I can’t really condemn Aung San Suu Kyi for acting as she is doing, since I don’t know what I’d do in her place. I like to think I would speak out, but I doubt I’d be able to muster the kind of moral courage condemning this ethnic cleaning would require from Aung San Suu Kyi. As the song says:

I’m not a coward,
I’ve just never been tested.
Like to think if I was, I would pass.
Look at the tested and think:
“There but for the Grace go I.”
Might be a coward,
I’m afraid of what I might find out.

It’s not easy to go against one’s own nation in the matter of treatment of religious minorities. Consider the fate of Taslima Nasrin, author of “Shame”…a book about how Bangladesh has treated its Hindu minority. They’re down from about 10-20 percent at independence to a fraction of one percent today. Technically, “genocide”, though that term is somewhat debased when it’s applied to expulsions and/or forced conversions and general grinding-down rather than outright mass murder.

What Kyi has to reckon with
