The situation between syria and myanmar is different.Rohingya issue is much more serious than any other issue, they have been suffering for decades and they are stateless and hepless minority muslims ,the most persecuted in the world according to UN report.The successive Myanmar Government has been violated human rights Rohingya Muslims in Myanmar.If you know the real History of Rohingyas , you will surely not compare with other issues.Thousands of Rohingyas have been killed by rakhines and Security Forces and 90000 have been displaced.What I want to say here is that it a systematic ethnic cleansing.
