    In this Tuesday, July 9, 2013 photo, Kyaw Kyaw, lead singer of punk rock band Rebel Riot, rehearses with his group members in a Yangon studio, Myanmar. Punk rockers draw double-takes as they dart through traffic, but it's not the pink hair, leather jackets, or skull tattoos that make these 20-somethings rebels: It's their willingness to speak out against Buddhist monks instigating violence against Muslims while others in Myanmar are silent. “If they were real monks, I’d be quiet, but they aren't,” says Kyaw Kyaw, as his drummer knocks out the beat for a new song slamming religious hypocrisy and an anti-Muslim movement known as “969.” “They are nationalists, fascists. No one wants to hear it, but it’s true.” (AP Photo/Gemunu Amarasinghe)

    FILE - In this Oct. 7, 2011 file picture German author Guenter Grass, listens during a press conference in Berlin. German literature Nobel laureate Grass says Israel's decision to bar him from visiting the country following a critical poem reminds him of similar moves by dictatorial governments in the past. Grass said in a reaction published Wednesday April 11, 2012 by German daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung that he has previously only been barred from entering a country by then Communist-ruled East Germany and the military junta in Myanmar about 25 years ago. Grass says the tone of Israel's announcement on Sunday reminded him of the reasoning then given by East Germany's spy minister Erich Mielke. In a poem published last week, the 84-year-old Grass criticized what he described as Western hypocrisy over Israel's nuclear program and labeled the country a threat to "already fragile world peace" over its belligerent stance on Iran.

    FILE - In this Oct. 15, 2009 file photo German writer and Nobel Prize laureate for literature Guenter Grass speaks at an interview with The Associated Press in the library of Steidl publishers in Goettingen, Germany. German literature Nobel laureate Guenter Grass is seeking to quell a growing controversy over a poem critical of Israel that drew sharp condemnations and accusations of being anti-Semitic. Grass told daily Sueddeutsche Zeitung's edition published Saturday April 7, 2012 that his criticism wasn't meant to attack the country wholesale but target the current policies of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanjahu's government. In the poem published in dailies across Europe earlier this week the 84-year-old Grass criticized what he described as Western hypocrisy over Israel's nuclear program and labeled the country a threat to "already fragile world peace" over its belligerent stance on Iran.
