In part owing to Muslim violence in one area, all Muslims are being driven out in others

Here is my open letter to highest official I met in Brunei.

Please duplicate or contact people you know to help these people.


########
Attention: Garrison's Chief of Staff Major John Dawson,

Brunei HIVE
Brunei Garrison

Dear Major,
A few years ago I shared a table with you at Istana Nurul Iman. I am that tall American with the sailboat. You kindly offerred to listen to any call for assistance.

I recall seated at the table were staff members from the British Army Air Corps (7 Flight) and RLD. They may be needed for an airlift.

It is for people on another vessel I seek assistance.

The Malaysian government has just pushed back an overloaded vessel carrying Muslims escaping from Myanmar. It is currently SW of Langkawi.

There are those that claim the last person one Muslim will permit to move into his country is another Muslim. I don't believe that is the case for Brunei.

In fact I believe is the perfect Country to help resettle these oppressed people.

It is possible here for the people of Brunei to show compassion and gain a large pool of eager young workers

I don't have the Sultan's ear as you do. Would you please inquiry if saving the lives of Muslims are more important than his polo ponies.

Thank you

Philip Maise

JazakAllahukhairun for bringing this up. The plight of our Burmese Muslim brothers and sisters must be addressed.

These eatimated 6,000 men, women, and children are floating on boats in conditions that must be pure hell. Several hundred have died and those alive have little or no protection from sun, heat, and waves.

Indonesia, Thailand, and Malaysia claim they are trying to prevent "human trafficking".

That is not the real problem. The real problem for the Rohingya-muslims is they are being purged in a similar manner that other religions are purged from Iraq. Once purged, from villages they lived hundreds of years, they have no where to go back.

Call, write, network, do something, anything to find a new homeland for these people.

Why do rich Arabic countries fly in untrained workers from India, and the Philippines by the million when this willing young, Muslim work force is rejected?

Todays news is difficult for me to read. It appears the vessel shown here has sank with loss of life 300+ people.


Southeast Asian migrant crisis: 'Ghost ship' carrying 350 starving Rohingya Muslims vanishes off Thailand

Each child, woman, and man in this photograph has likely died. The price paid owing to some Muslims that have lost their compassion is high.

Obviously no one has any compassion for Rohingya. Even Muslim nations have no compassion. One mega-yacht owner could easily have rescued a fishing boat full of people.

Another vessel report is equally distressing. That vessel was thankfully accepted into Indonesia. It spent many months at sea. Warning this article is graphic and desribes chaos aboard and 200 dead thrown overboard.

Here's some good news on the topic...

http://www.nytimes.com/aponline/2015...ment.html?_r=0

"Indonesia and Malaysia agreed Wednesday to provide temporary shelter to thousands of migrants believed to be stranded at sea, a potential breakthrough in the humanitarian crisis confronting Southeast Asia after weeks of reluctance by the region's nations to take responsibility."
