The Moderates of Myanmar

Maybe "moderate" just means irony-impaired:

U Thar Pwint, a lawyer in Rakhine State who describes himself as moderate, says Muslim culture is not compatible with Buddhist society. 
“Their culture does not allow living together with other cultures,” he said.

He proposes a radical solution for the Rohingya that is heard often among Buddhists in Myanmar. 
“Even though they are noncitizens, we cannot kill them,” he said. “Our wish is that they be put in another country."
