Muslims clash with China police who destroyed mosque
(AFP) Jan 2, 2012
BEIJING Hundreds of Muslims fought with armed police who demolished a mosque in north China, local police and a human rights group said on Monday, with several people injured in the "riot".
The violence between local Muslims and roughly 1,000 armed police began after police declared illegal a newly renovated mosque in the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region and moved to destroy it, the Information Center for Human Rights and Democracy, in Hong Kong, said.
The Hui are one of several Muslim minority groups in China.
Two people were killed and 50 injured after police fired tear gas and used knives and batons to beat back ethnic Hui Muslim protesters in Taoshan village, Hexi township, the rights group said, citing villagers.
Hexi township police denied any deaths when reached by telephone.
A policeman surnamed Ma confirmed that the mosque was torn down. He told AFP a "riot" occurred in Hexi on Saturday afternoon.

When the police come after you with knives now that’s
When Muslims destroyed a giant statue of Bhudda in meditation that dated back to the 7th century no one seemed to mind. Subsequently, the ‘removal’ of a Mosque seems not only fair but wise. Where Mosques exist there seems to be a greater chance that something bad will come of it rather than something good.
Welcome to January 2nd.
And I hope that the Chinese police chop, roast, puree (in pig fat), burn, and otherwise destroy all remains of the muzzies.
Sorry, but my regard for this ....er....”religion” has gone from respect to suspect to distrust to hate to outright desire to remove it from the known universe.
The Chinese police seem to have the right idea.
Too bad we can’t import the Chinese police along with everything else we import from China.
When does this policy take effect in the politically correct and hobbled U.S.?
Well, that wasn’t very PC of the Chinese police now was it?
Does that mean that the Chinese find sharia law UN-constitutional??????
Any video? Heck, I’d pay to see that!
I’m thinking of moving to the Ningxia Hui Autonomous Region.
“Sorry, but my regard for this ....er....religion has gone from respect to suspect to distrust to hate to outright desire to remove it from the known universe.”
The Chinese have felt that was far longer than America has existed. Seems they were the first to be ‘visited’ by the Mongols each time the Horde went for a ride.
Islam Delenda Est - an idea whose time has come.
I believe that the Chinese are taking steps to make sure the ‘Religion of Peace’ does NOT become a “Major Problem” in China.
Looks like China will be the next super power.
Start with the one in mecca.
“Seems they were the first to be visited by the Mongols each time the Horde went for a ride.”
I thought the Mongols were generally Buddhists. Conversion to Islam came after the fall of the Mongol Empire. Maybe I’m mistaken.
