China says ready to protect nation after Al-Qaeda threat

China said Saturday it was confident it could ensure the nation's safety after an Al-Qaeda leader called on members of the mainly Muslim Uighur minority in Xinjiang to launch a jihad against Beijing. "The Chinese government has the confidence and the ability to protect the safety of the nation, of people's lives and property," foreign ministry spokesman Ma Zhaoxu said in a statement faxed to AFP.

Ma was reacting to a call made this week by Abu Yahia al-Libi, one of Al-Qaeda's top leaders, in a video recording posted on an Islamist website, according to the SITE Intelligence group.

"Let our Muslim brothers in Turkestan know that there is no way for salvation and that there is no way to lift oppression and injustice but with truthful return to their faith and attachment to it as much as possible; to seriously prepare for jihad (holy war)," Libi said.

He also claimed the Uighurs suffered from discrimination, and pledged the communist Chinese regime would face the same fate as the former Soviet Union, which Islamist fighters had ferociously battled in Afghanistan.

But Ma said in the statement that China's northwest Xinjiang region -- where deadly unrest broke out in July between Uighurs and Han Chinese -- "fully implemented measures of ethnic equality and religious freedom

I feel really strange wishing “Godspeed” to China.

Chinese al-Queda members are already on display in many American cities. No "Club Gitmo" for these Uighur islamists:

Messing with China is like making fun of Stalin’s mustache, the end result won’t be pretty.

Wouldn't it be great if al-Queda ticked off the wrong opponent, one that doesn't care about being politically correct.

IIRC, the concept of religion is barely tolerated, at best, in China. And China doesn’t need the middle-east. I have a hunch fundiislamofascists are about to get their butts kicked right back to the 3rd century B.C. and we won’t have to worry for a long, long time.

This is nothing but propaganda by the ChiComs that was happy that Al Qaida supported the local seperatist movement which had resisted Al Qaida brand that would hurt their campaign against the communists. ChiComs are also rumored to supprt Taliban and Al Qaida becuase many Chinese made weapons were found in hands of those terrorists. I won’t be surprised if the message from Al Qaida was fabricated and in fact was faked by the ChiComs. Death to ChiCom, and yes the Al Qaida too.

NO kidding. Muslims are no more than 2% of China’s total population of 1,338,612,968. I think they will get their butt kicked.

I do not think the chi-coms will stop at placing ladies panties on captured Muslim Uighur insurgents.
Course the media won’t dwell on the murders about to take place now will they?

Every time I read about this, Hitlers ‘Operation Barbarossa’ comes to mind...and it’s eventual outcome.

They *do* have those 30 million males that no doubt have large chips on their shoulders, and if they can’t have a Chinese woman, might as well go kill some enemies and take *their* women...

China knows how to protect itself, even if it’s not PC.

There wont be a problem with a Gitmo prison in China.

They will deal with Muslims the way the Muslims understand.

I believe Al Qaeda will get the message and not launch jihad in China. If they do, there will be no clucking and hand wringing about “torture” or how to make prisoners more comfortable and get them top lawyers. There wont be any prisoners, because no one will be taken alive. Bullet to the back of the head is the standard execution method in China as the terrorists will soon learn.

I hope these Commie Bastards and the Al-Queerda goat violators wipe each other out.

To HELL with both of them.

Pass the popcorn... This should be good. I don't believe that there's a CHICOM translation for the term "Rules of Engagement."

This is soooooo what I’ve been waiting for, for Al Qaeda to pick a fight with China. Bloody falafel will soon become a new Chinese dish.

Nasty time we live in now. Who will be tough enough to survive? The US can't even defund the enemy by drilling for its own oil.

Imposing their birth control policies on the people of China has led to a disaster for China. I would not doubt they will have to start a war soon in order to keep the lid on the 30 million sexually frustrated males of China who are without, and will certainly remain without, women.

I would actually expect it.

Never trust anything a communist or the media says, they are the same.

One good thing about this threat to China is that it puts all 3 great powers in the same boat. So if we all decided to get harsh and repatriate this scum better for all of us.
