In Suu Kyi's Silence, Evidence of Growing Absence of Moral Conscience in Politics
In announcing that Suu Kyi would take a pass on the U.N. General Assembly in NY, which opened Tuesday and is expected to run through September 25, a spokesman for Myanmar's presidential office said the decision was made for a number of reasons related to the ongoing situation in the troubled state.
The United Nations appealed Thursday for massive help for the almost 400,000 who fled to Bangladesh, amid concern the number could keep rising unless Myanmar ends what critics denounce as "ethnic cleansing".
"There is a clear and systematic pattern of abuse here", said Tirana Hassan, crisis response director for Amnesty.
Sympathisers say her hands are tied by the army, which still runs a chunk of the government and has complete control over all security matters. "In legal terms, these are crimes against humanity, systematic attacks and forcible deportation of civilians".
Regional countries and Turkey were also described as "racing against the clock" to bring lifesaving assistance to Rohingya Muslims. Make no mistake: "this is ethnic cleansing", she was quoted as saying on the official website of the organization.
The United Nations on Thursday appealed for "massive" help for the 400,000 refugees that have sought protection in Bangladesh. That's an average of nearly 20,000 a day.

Baseball 'can benefit from LA 2028 Games decision'
Before that, today's meeting in Lima, Peru , was scheduled to be a vote between Paris and LA for the 2024 Games only. At the time, they committed to working out a deal that culminated with each city getting an Olympics on Wednesday.
In a statement, Security Council "expressed deep concern" about the situation in Rakhine State.
As the United Nations predicts that some 400,000 people have fled to Bangladesh since August 25, U Htin Lynn said they are fleeing out of fear of the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army -declared a terrorist organization by the Myanmar government after it attacked 30 police outposts last month - and not because of military security clearance operations.
But the refugees tell a different story.
The relief material consists of items required urgently by the affected people, namely rice, pulses, sugar, salt, cooking oil, tea, ready to eat noodles, biscuits, mosquito nets, the statement said. Amnesty says it has matched satellite images of the burnings to eyewitness testimony and images of homes being torched.
While the Security Council was meeting, U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told reporters that ethnic cleansing is taking place against the Rohingyas.
Hasina said her government allocated land for makeshift shelters of the Rohingyas "but it will certainly create a big problem for Bangladesh if they stay for long".
