The Myanmar holocaust!

It would be wrong to simply use the term "ethnic cleansing" when referring to the atrocities that Myanmar's security forces and Buddhist extremists have carried out against the Rohingya people. It should, in fact, be termed a holocaust.
Every sensible individual would condemn the holocaust that Hitler had carried out against the Jewish people. Every sensible person would express solidarity with the Jewish victims of Nazi Germany and their families. Similarly, the campaign of genocide that Myanmar's security forces have carried out against the Rohingya people should be roundly condemned by every sensible individual in the world.
