Decent people were very happy to see the huge victory of Aung San Suu Kyi and her National League for Democracy (NLD) party in the recent Myanmar (Burma) by-elections. However there is concern that there will be a lifting of sanctions against Myanmar before a genuine democracy has been emplaced. Continuing gross human rights abuses in Myanmar merit continuing sanctions and so do those of race-based, genocidal Apartheid Israel which is not subject to such international sanctions and yet should be for continuing war crimes, Apartheid and genocide. The gross human rights abuses of both anti-democracy Myanmar and anti-democracy Apartheid Israel are compared.
