"The Hidden Genocide in Burma"

Carlos sent me this:  "Professor William Schabas, the former president of the International Association of Genocide Scholars, says: "When you see measures preventing births, trying to deny the identity of the people, hoping to see that they really are eventually, that they no longer exist; denying their history, denying the legitimacy of their right to live where they live, these are all warning signs that mean it's not frivolous to envisage the use of the term genocide."

Incidentally, Shabas is famous for his reluctance of using the word 'genocide', that so many people threw around so easily".
