Prime Minister-elect Sam Rainsy: FEARS OF VIETNAM ARE A "PATRIOTIC CONCERN"




"OPINION" in The Cambodia Daily, October 28, 2013

FEARS OF VIETNAM ARE A "PATRIOTIC CONCERN"

In "CNRP’s Protest Culminates in 25,000-Strong Street March" (October 26-27) you wrote, «Mr. Rainsy then returned to his old bugbear, pillorying the Vietnamese — or "Yuon" — despite promising before the election he would refrain from stoking racial nationalist sentiment.»

My words were quoted out of their context since you didn’t mention any testimonies from those speakers, among the thousands of demonstrators at Freedom Park, who took the floor before I delivered my closing speech.

Two women from the Cham or Khmer-Islam minority from Kratie province’s Snuol district, came up to the stage to complain about Vietnamese companies confiscating their lands and those belonging to other villagers in the same district. Countless similar complaints can be heard from farmers from other provinces all over the country (Prey Lang forest in Kampong Thom province, Boeng Ket rubber plantation in Kampong Cham province, etc.)

One of the most notorious Vietnamese companies involved in land confiscation with the complicity of the Hun Sen government, bears the threatening name of Tan Bien or “New Frontier”, suggesting a borderline well inside Cambodia’s territory.

Actually, I am not pillorying the Vietnamese — there is no historically and linguistically authentic Khmer word, apart from “Yuon”, to designate people from Vietnam — more than the Palestinians are pillorying Israeli/Jewish settlers who confiscate their lands in occupied Palestine.

All Cambodians remember the sad fate of Kampuchea Krom or Southern Cambodia, a former Cambodian territory made up of 21 Khmer provinces, which was annexed by Vietnam in the last century with the complicity of the French colonialists following decades of massive immigration. Eventually Vietnamese largely outnumbered Cambodians and the new demographical balance, as a fait accompli, was the justification for the annexion by Vietnam.

Cambodians are now afraid of another fait accompli which could be under preparation and which would mean, this time, the death of their motherland.

Like the Palestinians fearing Israeli/Jewish settlements as embodying a policy of fait accompli by Israel, we Cambodians have a similar fear vis-a-vis the well-connected Vietnamese companies associated with land confiscation and destabilizing immigration. This legitimate patriotic concern has nothing to do with “stoking racial nationalist sentiment” as some sensationalist cliches in the foreign press tend to distort the reality of our feelings.

I appeal All Cambodian.

If you want to liberate our country from Vietnamese communist you all must act something now, otherwise it will be too late. Deforestation is part of Vietnamese disigning for HUN XEN to protect not to allow any Cambodian people who against HUN XEn and can escape to live in the Jungle. HUN SEN has a program telling Cambodian people not to have many kids to reduce a poverty, this is part of Vietnamese plan, let Cambodian produce not many kids whereas Vietnamese has produced many and then push them coming to live in Cambodia. HUN SEN does not want young Cambodian student to learn Cambodian History in deeply meaning and HUN SEN does not want and let any Cambodian talking about Cambodian history, land lost and island and Cambodian border this is part of Vietnamese plan let HUN SEN to do so.

honestly, as a khmer person, i don't care about youn or vietnam. what i want to point out is that most of the time, khmer politicians since sihanouk time to lon nol time up to sam rainsy and his party always politicize youn hatred. i don't think it's right to politicize any race in cambodia. and i don't think khmer are fearing youn, it's concern, but not fear. khmer and youn are two different people and culture, etc... however, during the french colonial era of the so-called indochina which included cambodia, vietnam and laos, khmer people noted the french colonist tend to favor youn or vietnamese over khmer, especially when they chose hanoi as their capital of french colonial administration and built major seaport and hiher institution of education and better infrastruture in vietnam and chose to ignore cambodia because they want cambodia to stay primitive. and it shows! why can't the world accept cambodia and the way we are? why we have to be like them?

also, about the article above that say people from snoul area noted youn company steal their lands, etc... that's a business company, get it straight. there's a difference between company and illegal immigrants. someone has to authorize the youn company to come do business in cambodia. so people should voice their concern to the proper authority who authorized youn company to do business in cambodia and that youn company grab lands from the local people. that, the politicians got to know the difference and stop always politicize youn because nobody cares about youn. if youn did something wrong or illegal in cambodia, deport those youn from cambodia. why make it such a big deal when politicians politicize that? not using their brain? if it's not true, it's people politizing this issue. that's the real problem in cambodia because people like to politicize youn for their own gain. continue to politicize any race will not be good for future gov't policy because the world is governed by the rule of law, so the race thing is getting blurry, especially with international business liasion, etc. think wisley about, cambodia! stop using any race for your political promotion, etc! it gets really old and people started to not buying into it if you politicize it all the time.

Vietcong is worried, if Cambodian National Rescue Party won, Sam Rain Sy and Kem Sokha will bring Vietcong to the International Court of Justice because Vietnamese has moved Border post deeply to Cambodian teritory and also Vietcong has took Cambodian big island Koh Tral and a lot of Cambodian sea teritory. There are about 4 million Vietnamese refugees must go back to Veitnam if Sam Rain Sy won. In this case Vietcong is doing a new stratergy helping HUN SEN to make another deal with Sam Rain Sy and trying to defeat Sam Rain Sy party like Funcinpec.

As long as Vietcong is standing back behind HUN SEN Cambodia will not have peace, freedom, justice and prosperity. The best way to liberate our country just teaching young Cambodian know how to use Chemical and Biological weapon and going to China or North Korea ask them to get some, this is the best way .

HUN Sen Has committed too much crimes killing his own people and gave Cambodian land to Vietnam, this is the most important why HUN SEN needs to cheat and fraud the votes. Honestly, if let the Election is free and fair HUN SEN knows he would be lost, that is why in the past HUN SEN did not want to let any one to manage the National Election except IM SOUR SDEY. They are hundred percent was fraud and cheated. NO way for HUN SEN to step down and no way for HUN SEN to have peaceful solution

CNRP: this is one of the solutions for you.


The CNRP needs to launch a psychological warfare to inform the world by having the necessary documents to support the facts that Vietnam had kidnapped Khmer children, brainwashed them, and used them to kill millions of Khmer people during the Pol Pot era. The K5 project deployed by Vietnam during its occupation in the 1980s was explicitly intended to obliterate Khmer race.

The CNRP should use the analysis written by Hassan Kasem to denounce Vietnam’s dominance over Cambodia. Here is the link:

http://ki-media.blogspot.com/2013/10/vietnams-hidden-hand-in-cambodias.html#more

It is ridiculous when Vietnam killed millions of Khmer people, nobody care. When Khmer people called Vietnam Yuon, they said we used racial slur. It is so wrong.

We got to learn how to communicate better with the international community.



First of all, we must know Vietnam’s determination to hold on to Cambodia.

If we look back at the history, we would clearly see that Vietnam never abode or complied with all the treaties it had signed.
For instance:
1- Vietnam promised that it would not attack the US and its allies during the Vietnamese new year in 1968.
2- Vietnam did not comply with the 1973 peace treaty it had signed with the US.
3- Vietnam did not comply with the 1991 Paris peace accord and instead implement all the bilateral treaties it had signed with Cambodia during its occupation.


Nobody wants Khmer people to die, but we must prepare to face this evil Vietnam
with the right attitude.

The CNRP thought that it won during the 3 demonstration since there was no violence during the demonstration. That is 100% wrong because Khmer people have the right to walk peacefully.

The CNRP must realize that TIME is on Hun Sen and Vietnam’s side. If Vietnam were able to drag this process longer, Khmer people and the international community will lose interest, and the CNRP will go nowhere but to a certain defeat.

I suggest that the CNRP does not let up its demonstration after 3 days. KEEP GOING.
The election is 3 months old already. The CPP knew already that if the independent committee were established, it will become the loser. So, the CPP’s strategy is to drag the process and let TIME kill the CNRP.

To counter effectively Vietnam’s strategy, the CNRP must Intensify its demonstration.

I am not an extremist, but I will consider a great victory for Cambodia and Khmer people if we lost 100,000 people or less during our crusade to liberate Cambodia from Vietnam. It looks like I am the only one who kept saying this. But I am saying one more time, no lost life, no fruitful result for the CNRP.

My ulterior motive was that Khmer people need help from the international community, especially the UN. The international community will be able to intervene only when Vietnam and Hun Sen committed a huge crime by killing so many people.

Do not compare Cambodia to Syria. Cambodia has the 1991 Paris peace agreement in place. If we were able to take the July 28th 2013 election loser CPP down, we would be able to invoke the 18 signatory countries to convene easily and resolve most of the problems.
.
Knowing our enemy’s strength and determination are the keys for us to succeed in our struggle to dislodge this pest Vietnam out of Cambodia.

With this traitor Hun Sen and the evil Vietnam: no lost life, no fruitful result. If you are afraid to lose life, and you want to win, you keep dreaming because it will never work with this evil Vietnam.

Why the word "Youn" is such a big deal? Youn people in Cambodia should be happy if Sam Rainsy comes to power because Sam Rainsy will use the rule of law to govern Cambodia and the law will protect Youn people the same way the law protect Khmer people!

Sam Rainsy spoke the truth! If these foreigners are so interest in "Youn" or Vietnamese racism in Cambodia and they need to take a closed look in Khmer(Khmer Krom) in Vietnam too! There are over 10 million Khmer(Khmer Krom) in
Southern Vietnam who under oppression of the Youn government(Vietnamese government). The Khmer(Khmer Krom) are restricted from getting job, going to higher education, and robbed their right to their ancestral land.

The foreigners must accept that the open wound between Khmer and Youn(Vietnamese) will never heal because what "Youn"(Vietnamese) did to the Khmer is far beyond racism and it is a total annihilation of a group of people called the Khmer! So the issue of the Khmer(Khmer Krom)is not far from the mind of Khmer people when dealing with Youn(Vietnamese).
The relationship between the Khmer and "Youn" (Vietnamese) is dictated by the law of Karma and what Youn(Vietnamese) did to the Khmer and the Khmer will give it back to Youn(Vietnamese. The cycle of violent will never stop!

1:33 PM. Very well said. It is not us Khmer who are racist, but the Westerners with lacks of education to understand the difference of culture and language between the Khmer and the Youn.

Even Thailand and Laos calls them Youn(Vietnamese). Do the Westerners admit that they are racist toward Khmer and the Khmer Krom(Southern Cambodia) who lived in SEA for thousands of years, whereas the Youn(Vietnamese) only migrated from China in the last hundred years?

Vietnamese Coffee Shop in Cambodia


Nowadays, there are more and more Vietnamese Coffee Shops in Cambodia is a country which traditionally Khmer people seem do not drink much coffee. The more Vietnamese settlers move in Cambodia, the more the unemployment cause to Cambodian people. When you drive around the Toul Tompong, Kirirom, Olympic and other places in Phnom Penh, you will see more and more the Vietnamese Coffee Shops with Vietnamese employees without speaking any Khmer language. Young Vietnamese girls with short skirt and white skin attract Cambodian men including students into the coffee shops which seems most of them before didn't drink coffee.

A young girl is from South Vietnam. She cannot speak and count money in Khmer, but she can makes her living by running a coffee shop in using her sex appeal to attract customers. A Young Vietnamese girl whom runs her coffee shop near Human Resources University said “I do not know how many people come per day, but I have income 500 000 Riel/day.". If we converted this income, it will make $125.00 US dollar. This can make her whole family live easily by working for the shop. I spent about an hour in this Vietnamese coffee shop, and I had noticed that most customers are Cambodians who are attracted by her short skirt and white skin.

Vietnamese Coffee Shops increase silently from day to day; whereas Khmer people have no job, but they spent their tiny income in Vietnamese shop to enjoy the view of short skirt and white Yuon skin. The most worrying is historically Youn use “Srey Youn” to swallow Khmer land. If Khmer men were not aware of this situation, Ho Chi minh plan to conquer Cambodia will be complete in the near future. After Khmer history, Chey Chestha II, Sihanouk and Hun Sen have Youn wife seem that Youn have accomplished substantially its plan. Furthermore, with the unconscious Khmer men get crazy with short skirt and white skin without thinking the destiny of their own nation, it is simply a complementary force for Ho Chi Minh‘s plan.

YOUN IS EVERYWHERE, EVEN THOMIKOR ‘S MOTHER IS A SREY YOUN.

EVERYTHING COMES FROM MIND, WHAT WE THINK WE BECOME, THEREFORE THE SENTIMENT OF BELONGING TO WITH PURE KHMER AND KHMER HAS YOUN MOTHER ARE NOT THE SAME. THEY CARE LESS THAN PURE KHMER TO DEFENSE KHMER LAND. THEREFORE WE CAN THINK ABOUT SIHAMONI WHO SIGNED KOH TRAL TO VIETNAM, HIS SENTIMENT ISN'T REALLY AFFECTED LIKE REAL KAUN KHMER. HAVE YOU ASK A QUESTION WHAT HER MOTHER THINK ABOUT HE (SIHAMONI) SIGNED KOH TRAL TO YOUN? I THINK SHE WAS GRATEFUL.

Again and again how Vietnam encroaches on Cambodian territories.... First they test our response or reaction by placing a temporary post deep inside our land; if there are no complains or reactions from our side that is the permanent post. In some some cases even there complains from poor Khmer side with little strength they still keep it as permanent post. Again and again, it happens each and every time but you don't know it... There are no resistance from the CPP side to stop Vietnam from doing it. I encourage Khmer communities or activists to oversee this border agreements with Vietnam. There are problems of losing territories with little care from the CPP. Please take action as this is in urgency.

Below is the worst Khmer traitor Hun Sen statement:

“[Mr. Hun Sen] would like to ex­tend his admiration to the demonstrators and their leaders, who maintained good cooperation with all levels of authorities to avoid any irregular activities,” the statement says.


The CNRP's leaders,

When the traitor Hun Sen congratulates you, you must be out of touch with Khmer people.

This is the most crucial time in Khmer history, it requires the leaders to make bold decision and ultimate sacrifice.

If you are a chicken, you need to transfer your task to others who are willing to sacrifice their life to save Cambodia.

Khmer people must know how to deal with incompetent leaders.

For example, in the CNRP, its committee members must compose with patriotic and competent people. Make sure that NO element of the Yuon slave in that committee.

When people feel that under the current leader, the party will go nowhere but down hill, the committee must gather and pick a new leader. If the party were able to do this transition smoothly, the party will get stronger and stronger and the CPP cannot break the CNRP. Make sure that no struggle of power. Do according to the internal rules or regulations of the party.

Put aside the personal interest, just keep the party stronger.

Remember, NEVER move out of the party and create a new party. This idea will serve the Yuon and kill Cambodia.

We do something to improve the party. That one new thing that Khmer people must learn and adapt.

Bun Thoeun

PS: Change the way you make that demonstration. It is not working.
