The Israeli paper Haaretz has emphasized the nation’s”shameful function” from the Myanmar military regime’s”genocidal campaign” from the Rohingya Muslim minority, citing Tel Aviv’s arms sales to the South East Asian country along with the 2 nations growing ties.
An opinion piece from Charles Dunst yesterday declared Israel’s passive stance towards the stateless Rohingya people, asserting that Israel gave Myanmar the diplomatic and tools space to perform the atrocities.
Dunst also remembered how he met with the Israeli ambassador to Myanmar this past year, Ronen Gilor, also introduced up the persecution of the Rohingya and Israeli arms sales to the nation, noting that Gilor refused to answer his own inquiries.
Gilor recently came under fire for a currently deleted tweet where he wanted”good fortune” into Myanmar’s delegation led by de facto leader Aung San Suu Kyi before a genocide hearing in the Hague, that happened on Tuesday.
The announcement was afterwards convicted by the Israeli Foreign Ministry describing it as composed in”mistake”.

As stated by the Burma Citizenship Law of 1982, the Myanmarese belong to eight native races: the Bamar, Chin, Kachin, Kayin, Kayah, Mon, Rakhine and Shan, that can be split to 135 different ethnic groups. The Rohingya aren’t regarded as belonging to at least one of these classes and therefore aren’t citizens. Rather they’re known as”Bengalis”.
