Uighurs to Declare War against Chinese Government
|The members of 'East Turkestan Liberation Organization(ETLO)' making the declaration via a video (from BBC)
'East Turkestan Liberation Organization(ETLO)', a radical Uighur organization, declared publicly war against Chinese government for the first time, via videotaped statements, BBC reported on Sept. 30th (in its Chinese edition.)
According to BBC, 'East Turkestan Information Center' located in Munich, Germany, provided the link to the web site containing this video(made by Tianshan branch of ETLO), and apparently it was announced via overseas Wanwei free server, fhreactor.com.
In the video, three ETLO masked members carrying an assault rifle announced the declaration in Uighur language, with the organization's banner(crescent Moon flag with stars) as a backdrop.
In their statements, they appealed to Uighurs to resist the activities celebrating the 50th anniversary of Xinjiang Autonomous District on Oct. 1, and declared that they will prosecute armed revolt against Chinese government, with all possible means.
Chinese government classifies ETLO, which demands Uighur independence, as a terrorist organization, and in particular, after 9/11 incident, tightened the control over Uighurs in the name of anti-terror (campaign), causing international condemnations.
On Sept. 23rd, in Kuerlei, one of three major cities in Xinjiang, its Uighur mayor, Mutalifu(?) Yusuf(age:43) reportedly killed himself, but Chinese government is clamping down the coverage of this incident, prompting suspicion on the nature of his (alleged) suicide.
After WWII, Uighurs in Xinjiang set up independent 'East Turkestan Republic' just like five other countries in West Turkestan, but it was forcibly annexed to China by (Chinese) communists in 1949.
Currently, many Uighurs rather want to exercise the right of full ethnic autonomy guaranteed in Chinese law rather than independence, and oppose nuclear test (in their territory,) one-child policy, and religious persecution. However, they are now all branded as 'separatists.'

Well, they've finally taken on an enemy who will treat their right to human rights as they should be treated.
China won't be as nice as the Marines!
China won't be as nice as the Marines!
I wonder if China will wage a PC we-can't-hurt-their-feelings war againt the Jihadis.
No, I don't
Wonder what the Chinese Gitmo will be like...
Im not a big fan of the PRC but I do have to give them credit for knowing how to deal with this problem without worrying public/world opinion and prison torture photos landing in the press.
In Chinese Gitmo, prisoners could be butchered alive to harvest organs which would fetch high price in the international organ market.
Well; wasn't that brilliant of them!
The term "Darwin Award" comes to mind for some reason...
Having the Islamofacists declare a jihad on China sounds like a lovely idea to me; It would give them both something to do other than exterminating / enslaving US!
When a dragon and a pack of jackals get into a dust-up over who gets to eat us first, just getting the heck out of the way and letting them have at it seems like the prudent thing to do, wouldn't you say?
You read my mind.:)
This is not good. China now has an excuse for any adventuring it wishes to do outside of its Western borders. All the "Stan" countries (Kazakh, Tajik, Kyrgyz, etc) will need to be on notice.
No one wants to know that.
But there won't be any lawyers, media ..... or getting out.
So what do we do when an army off 200,000,000 men comes rolling in to the mideast from China?
After all , don't they have the right to go after the terrorists also?
I don't see this working out very well.
Hey - great idea. We could send our prisoners there, then let the barking moonbats go crazy.
I think there won't be full Jihad by Al Qaeda or Iran-backed elements in Xinjiang. China is their important behind-the-scene sponsor. If they are foolish enough to do it, international Jihad is in real danger of dying out fast.
I felt the same way when Iraq invaded Iran and fought for nine long, fruitless years.
Too bad we supplied, armed and bankrolled the aggressor. It came back to bite us on the butt.
At the Chinese Communist Gitmo, the koran flushes You!
Beautiful, ain't it?
