I want people to be aware of some terrible blood libels by muslims attacking Buddhists, claiming there is some muslim genocide going on at Buddhists hands, while I am sure that Buddhists historical reputation shows them in excellent light, the imagery that muslims are using is compelling in a style they normally reserve for Jews in the blood libels we are used to hearing them fabricate.
Social media is lying to you about Burma’s Muslim cleansing

Social networking sites are abuzz with news about Muslims being killed in Burma.You can see the sporadic posting of pictures by different people with captions like ‘Muslims killing in Burma’, ‘Muslims slaughtered by Buddhists in Burma’ and so on.
Thus, I took on the mission to sort the truth out for myself once and for all and researched some pictures that I felt were dubious. Below are a few pictures and their original copies. You can evidently see the gross difference between them and how they are thrown out of context.
A picture shared on facebook:
I have found original version here:
This picture was taken in 2010 regarding Earthquake in China and tibetians community help and rescue in China. Now Islamic political parties and some other elements are sharing this image as Muslims killing / slaughter in Burma.
This was a picture shared on Facebook.
I have found the original version which reads differently to the the one posted on the social networking site.
This picture was taken in 2010 after an earthquake in China and captures the efforts put in by the Tibetans to help rescue the victims. Now, Islamic political parties and some other elements are sharing this image as Muslim killing and their slaughter in Burma.
Another widely circulated picture captioned “More then 1,000 people killed in Burma” is also fake.
The original, as you can see below, is taken in Thailand in the year 2004. This picture shows protesters that were tear-gassed outside the Tal Bai police station in Bangkok. This is roughly 1,409.9 km away from Burma! What is grossly negligent about these photos is the factual ignorance of the hate these misleading photos can culminate.
Below, please find another image which was posted online, this time with an imprint of Jamaat-e-Islami on the top left . It reads ‘Terrorists of Budhism of Burma kills 500 Muslims’.
As you can guess, this is also a fabricated picture.
In reality, this image belongs to a Human Rights violation incident by the Thai authorities against the Rohingya ethnic minority of Burma. These refugees were detained for a few weeks and then sent off drifting into the sea.
Here is another instance of such fallacy spreading across the social media sites regarding the massacre of Muslims in Burma.
This picture is extremely misleading considering that the original image was about the riots in Thailand that took place in 2003!
Now, take a look at the image below and observe how it is blown out of context.
Now, view the original.
The original picture is not even remotely close to what the picture above states. In fact, a Tibetan protester had set himself on fire in protest prior to the arrival of Chinese president Hu Jintao and that too in Delhi.
I do not deny the killings of Muslims in Burma – not even for a minute.
I think it is horrific and I am sympathetic towards the immense loss being suffered by my Muslim brothers and sisters abroad.
What I am against is being lied to.
Imagine the amount of lies we are being fed through these pictures. How can one trust any image online if such drastic manipulation and editing is being done to cater to someone’s political or personal agenda?
Social media and networking sites, if used properly, can be an impressive tool in spreading awareness amongst its users, but it can be an equally dangerous median as well if misused.
These images are false and are only igniting hatred and prejudice in our youth.
We need to become more vigilant and aware of the credibility and authenticity of pictures we browse through. It only takes one wrong image to push us over the edge towards extremism.
I have found more more picture (07-18-2012) so I am sharing it here.
The real image was regarding 9/11 attacks and arrests of Tajikis and Uzbiks.
I Like to mention that POSTING THESE FAKE IMAGES DOESN’T MEANS THAT MUSLIMS ARE NOT KILLED IN BURMA, THE ONLY REASON OF SHARING THOSE IMAGES IS TO SHOW HOW SOCIAL MEDIA AND POLITICAL PARTIES ARE MANIPULATING IMAGES.
this is beyond reprehensible..
I reposted this article on LiveLeak, but somehow the photos aren’t showing up where they ought to; I credited TRex/linked back here and to original article.. but let me know if you prefer I delete article from LL,
this is normal playing victim wbhile their people run around the world raping killing stealing all for the glory of islam
i do note that hillary clintons office was pushing these pic’s as genuine , maybe someone should send her a link to this ,
I thought the..”I hate being lied to”..was a bit Rich.
In my town most people dont even know what the word propaganda means.
So, we are owed a lot more dead Muslims. Allah will provide without a doubt.
The mozlems mass-raped a young Buddhist Burmese girl! Why is this never mentioned? The Buddhists did what all decent people should do when dealing with mozlems; attacked them back.
Either the muzzies are lying, as usual, or the Buddhists are doing a fine job.
If there were that many dead Moslems the rest in that area would shut up and lay low.
I cannot say I am surprised at any of this. Muslims Lie. It is in their DNA to do so. They are also hypocrites. How else can they recite the victim mantra while systematically murdering, raping and laying waste to any country they occupy. I am moving permanently to Thailand in the next few months. Close to where my wife’s family live they are troubled on a daily basis by drive by shootings of Buddhists by muslims yet always it is the muslims who are screaming victim.
I maybe wrong here – wasnt there a photo of Nigerian Christians killed and burned by Boko Haram that Muslims were claiming as the bodies of Muslims?
What really is disgusting is that Muslims use the tragedy of others to claim victim status for themselves. This has always been the case – even before the bodies of 9/11 victims were buried, or the families had time to mourn over the dead, Muslims in America were claiming that they were the real victims of 9/11.
