Members of the interfaith tolerance group gathered in Washington, DC on Tuesday to detail the plight of the Rohingya, and to warn that the Kachin also face potential ethnic cleansing.  Roberts said he was alarmed to learn that the same Burmese military units that have burned villages, and have raped and killed Rohingya ethnics in Rakhine State, are now on patrol in the Kachin State. “When you radicalize

and you create such violence among soldiers that have been raping and murdering, you just don’t turn that switch off,” he said.  He said military units have bombed or burned at least 60 churches in the past 18-months. Last October, Roberts joined Rabbi David Saperstein on a trip to assess the plight of Rohingya refugees in Bangladesh. CONTINUE
