This isn’t good. The Chicoms will use these barbaric actions to crack down on all religious activity in the country, including persecution of innocent Christians.

I’m not usually on the side of the Islamists, but the Uyghurs have real grievances against the ChiComs, and I am never on the side of the ChiComs.

How the Chinese respond away from the cameras will not be pretty.

I understand what you’re saying, but killing innocent people at a train station, isn’t the way to express grievances.

“Ruh roo, did the Moose-lim Brotherhood just make a new enemy?”

No. This has been going on for a long time. The silliness is, China is backing Muslims in Afghanistan and Pakistan, both of which have contributed to this problem in their back yard.

I join you in that. I don’t like Islam, I hate it, but the Chinese have been systematically destroying the ancient culture of Uighuristan, a country they invaded in the 20th century. Just like they are doing in Tibet, but more so..
