Rohingyas, de la fable à la réalité
(Rohingyas from fable to reality)

Didier Treutenaere | October 2018

What are the Rohingyas? Who are the terrorists and what goals are they pursuing? What are the real geopolitical, economic and ideological aims of this conflict?
How the emotion provoked by this humanitarian catastrophe is utilised for propaganda, to give the world two inverted images: that of a persecuted Islam that the jihadists would only protect and that of a “Radical Buddhism” which would betray its ideals.

Isabel Azevedo Drouyer - René Drouyer | November 2017

Why have sacred tattoos generated such enormous enthusiasm? Who are these men who practise the art of Sak Yant, and who are their clients?
