  0 comments   |     by Mary Scully on 18, May 2016

No more bewilderment about why the holder of the Nobel Peace Prize (a worthless honorific most often awarded war criminals), the democracy icon known as "the Mandela of Asia," the holder of dozens of international honorifics as a champion of human rights has remained dead silent on the genocide against Rohingya Musli
