As usual when Muslims murder Myanmar Buddhists, the press never writes who killed whom – they just write about “clashes”. In the article, the Muslim newspaper The Jakarta Globe, tips their hand when they write that the murdered are “Myanmar nationals”. The thing is, that Muslims can not be Myanmar nationals – so it must be people from the other party, the Buddhists, who got killed. From The Jakarta Globe:
“Police have detained 15 people from Myanmar over a string of gruesome murders in a popular Malaysian tourist destination, and believe the killings are linked to ethnic unrest in their native country, reports said on Friday.
Public anxiety has risen in Malaysia’s historic state of Penang over the past few months as mutilated corpses or severed body parts have turned up — with at least 18 mysterious and unexplained murders of Myanmar nationals.
Authorities had made little comment until now but the state’s police chief was quoted on Friday saying they now believe the killings are linked to Myanmar’s sectarian bloodshed — where there has been violent clashes between Muslims and Buddhists.”

For some reason Malaysia is not mentioned in the Wikipedia post on Persecution of Buddhsts – maybe somebody could do that?
