We must make solving the Rohingya crisis our main focus

The Rohingya humanitarian crisis should not disappear from the global consciousness. It is time to tackle the underlying causes that led millions to flee their countries. Failure to do so would only act to prolong the conflict.

This reminds me of the Arab-Israeli crisis: the refugee question is far from being solved; Israelis continue to colonise more territories and Palestinians continue to live in a land so wracked with systematic violence, injustices, prejudices, persecution, tribalism, hatred, terror and ethnic cleansing.

The international community must grapple with the realities of the world beyond mere words and hollow promises.
