America, meet your new neighbors: the Uighurs
SF Examiner ^ | 05/14/09 | Newt Gingrich

Posted on 05/15/2009 9:52:24 AM PDT by freespirited

...America, meet the Uighurs.

Seventeen of the 241 terrorist detainees currently being held at Guantanamo Bay are Chinese Muslims known as Uighurs. They have been allied with and trained by al-Qaida-affiliated terrorist groups. The goal of the Uighurs is to establish a separate sharia state.

As part of its ongoing effort to close Guantanamo Bay, the Obama administration has had to figure out what to do with the Uighurs. Officials believe that if they’re sent back to China they will be persecuted, and no third country will take them.

So the Obama administration has decided to set the Uighurs loose in America.

But the Obama administration’s plan for the Uighurs doesn’t stop there. At Guantanamo Bay, the Uighurs are known for picking up television sets on which women with bare arms appear and hurling them across the room.

Perhaps understandably, the Obama administration believes the Uighurs will need help adjusting to American society, in which women with bare arms have been known to appear.

So last month, Obama administration Director of National Intelligence Dennis Blair indicated that terrorist detainees released into the United States would receive public assistance.

By their own admission, Uighurs being held at Guantanamo Bay are members of or associated with the Eastern Turkistan Islamic Movement (ETIM), an al-Qaida-affiliated group designated as a terrorist organization under U.S. law. The goal of ETIM is to establish a radical Islamist state in Asia.

Prior to 9/11, the Uighurs received jihadist training in Tora Bora, Afghanistan, a known al-Qaida and Taliban training ground. What’s more, they were trained, most likely in the weapons, explosives and ideology of mass killing, by Abdul Haq, a member of al-Qaida’s shura, or top advisory council. Obama’s own interagency review board found that at least some of the Uighurs are dangerous....

They trained with al-qaeda, but they aren't terrorists. I guess they are Persons of Man-Made Disasters.

Doesn’t Obama want to improve relations with China? I mean, since they have bought most of our debt, I think it would be nice to return 17 of their citizens.

If China wants to prosecute them, they must be guilty of something. Since they are Chinese citizens, let China do its job.

They may be Chinese nationals, ie citizens, but they are not ethnic Chinese. Ethnically, they are Turkic, religiously Muslim and otherwise repressed by the Chinese majority.

Their historical claim to fame is providing a written language adaptible by their Mongol overlords when they were overrun by Chingghis Quan, as well as a civil service to help him.

This is rich. Not only are we going to release trained terrorists into the middle of a society that they despise with every fiber of their being, but we're going to pay for the ba$tards!

A Pulitzer Prize to the reporter at the White House presser who asks Maobama, "Mr. President, we understand that there are plans to release 17 suspected terrorists who trained with Al-Quaida from Guantanamo inside the country, and to put them on public assistance. Can you tell the country which moron in your administration came up with this clusterphuk of an idea. No follow-up."

Why can’t they be parachuted from B-52’s on a secret night flight over Mexico? If they REALLY wanted to live in the US, they’d sneak across again, like all the other wetbacks.

That Obama would even consider releasing these dangerous Islamo-wacko terrorists into American society should be reason enough to impeach the traitor.

There just isn't any rational explanation for doing such a stupid thing.

The second they are dropped off in your neighborhood, and those black ATV's turn the corner after dropping them off at their new government tax payer paid for homes.

Maybe the plan is to saturate them with the joys of US living, secretly train them, and then send them back to China. I should imaging the joys of real women should be a big step up from the 72 virgins of paradise, might even convert a few.

Last I heard they want to send some to Alexandria VA, which is one of the RAT capitals of the country, and some to a part of Fairfax County that is in Rep. Frank Wolf’s district.

I actually dont know whether his district went for Obama. It may have but it might also be the part of Fairfax that is saner and more heavily GOP.

Someone else around here might know.

A few Manichean and Christian Uyghurs from the Ughur Khaganate would be interesting. Salafist Uighurs are another matter. Salafists are like witches. You should not suffer society to let them live.
They can eat their white grapes while searching in vain for the virgins.

Communist China desparately wants them back! It wants to put them on trial for terrorism, but the Obama administration insists on protecting them from the consequences of their actions.

It says returning them to China is out of the question.
