The persecution and suffering of the Rohingya people, an ethnic minority in Burma (Myanmar), continues to escalate. Since August 25, 2017, Burmese forces have burned entire Rohingya villages to the ground, soldiers have indiscriminately massacred Rohingya men, women and children, and more than 687,000 people have been forced to flee by foot and boats from their burned villages to refugee camps in Bangladesh, usually a trek of several weeks. As Jews and global citizens, we cannot remain silent while senseless acts of torture and brutality continue. We must act now to ensure the survival, safety and dignity of the Rohingya people. There is legislation before the Senate that would sanction the military perpetrating this violence, provide more funding for the humanitarian crisis and start the process of accountability and justice for the Rohingya people; it must pass now.
