The main reason that make the problem and hatred between Thai-Cambodia now is politic .
Do u remember Pnom pehn riot that Cambodian protest destroy Thai shop and business in PnomPehn(after Hunsen provoke for his popularity in new election) in 2003 or even Preah vihear conflict between Hunsen and Democrat Party(Anti -Taksin) in 2009-2011?
If the main reason is history,the Burma must be the most hatred for Thai because they destroy our old capital.
But in the truth, Burma is not the hated country for Thai .Many Thai like Burma and many Burmese (around 1-2 millions peoples are working in Thailand )now .
It's because we don't have the politic problem like Thai-Cambodia.
And if you walk in Bangkok ,you will see many Cambodian beggars(never seen from Laos or Burma) ,it also make the bad perception of Cambodian for Thais.
You are right in some point...
This is you see from Cambodia..
What Thai base:
1, Cambodian Migration illegally to Thailand to works and cut trees
2, Cambodian beger in Bangkok
3, History (Known Khmer as disgreatful people, Khmer were slave during Angkor Empire)
4, National stereotype (Black Khmer, lower class....)
5, Cambodian burned their embassy and Thai business in Phnom Penh, Hun Sen support Taksin, and Preah Vihear dispute.
So I think Thai people make a big miss understanding about the situation of Cambodia.
1, Poor low education Cambodian was hire by those Business people (Thai-Cambodian) to do that work with provided low income and high rise!!
2, Most Cambodia beger was like a group lead by (Thai-Cambodia) who used them for earn their own profit.
3, Miss lead Thai history again Cambodia.. King Neurea cut Khmer king head to wast his feet which cause by Khmer who bit on the back when Siam's King battle with Burma.. in fact is that the fault history of Thailand... Khmer actually help Siam to kick Burmese out, with the agreement with Siam will never abuse more Khmer territory.. and King Neurea have kills Khmer king because Khmer king was escape to Laos.. and it have also mention in Lao history, and Burmese History as well.
Thai people say they was threaten by France and they had loss their territory.
Thai never learn how Khmer think about it... when there are two big countries tearing Cambodia for their own advantage..
Thai think Khmer was brainwash by France who draw the borderline and divided Thailand and Cambodia while Cambodia never consider them self part of Thailand even once!
4, Thailand national stereotype discriminate Khmer and Khmer national stereotype discriminate Thai
5, Cambodian have known that Siem always want to take more Cambodia land and they think they own Angkor Wat.
According to the history Siem is the invader who sacked Angkor Wat three times and many other city included the big lost of Longvek. which Siam have took more intellectual and importance document to Krung Tep.. (Legend the story of losing Preah Ko Preah Keo) and also base on Pongsavada Khmer (the History of Cambodia).. I think it normally when we hear taht anyone want to claim what belong to you they actually very angry... and the Burn of the Embassy is not all Cambodian fault is the Political agenda cause by some group and do by some group.. I am sure most Cambodian hate war (we suffer too much war especially the Khmer Rough) but they love their country too.. so war is always the last solution. like the Preah Vihear Temple, is actually is not from Cambodia but it your Thai people its self who make it become problem that it bring some group of people in Cambodia took advantage from that!!!
so my included is all the problems all level whcih cause between the two country is because of some group of people... my question is why education people who can used these internet and debate on AF never want to see fact but full of nationalism.. seeking for truth about history of Khmer empire just to make them look more good.. SOme of those actually a real sick of Thailand's desea..
Actually they put their self under politically agenda.. I am not part of any government.. but I am here represent of ordinary people.. and want to see the root of the problem.. which actually cause by one small group of the two countries..
I think Thai-Cambodia like we are presented here should work together.. to make both our people understand each other well...
and I understand why you say Thai don't hate Burmese when they burn Sokhothai, and I can also say Why Khmer don't Hate Thai while Thai sack Angkor three time, as well as burning Long Vek, supported Khmer Rough....
But don't forget that in the history Thai consider Burmese as enemy number one!
