Clashes Jihad leaves 50 dead in China’s East Turkestan
Its not “Turkestan”, itsÂ Xinjiang and it belongs to China, not to the soldiers of allah.
A series of four explosions left at least 50 people dead over the weekend in China’s East Turkestan region, otherwise known as the Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region, local media reported Thursday.
Chinese state news agency Xinhua reported that 40 “rioters,” six other civilians and four security officers lost their lives after explosions Sunday at two police stations, a shop and a marketplace.
According to Xinhua, another 54 civilians were injured in the explosions, including 32 Uighurs — a Turkic-speaking Muslim ethnic minority group, many of whom are agitating for independence and have accused the Chinese government of human rights violations and discrimination.
East Turkestan police called the explosions Sunday “an organized terrorist attack.”
According to state media, the “rioters” blew themselves up or were shot by police. Among those shot was Mehmet Dursun, who was allegedly the main person responsible for the attack.
Last May, China launched a yearlong “anti-terrorism” campaign — focusing on East Turkestan — which will be in effect until June 2015.
On Tuesday, a court in China sentenced Uighur academic Ilham Tohti to life imprisonment after he was accused of promoting separatism in East Turkestan.
Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry stated that the sentence was “a retribution for professor Tohti’s peaceful efforts to promote human rights for China’s ethnic Uighur citizens.”
China: In the western Xinjiang province, where bombings, mass knifings and other violent attacks by Islamic terrorists have become a regular occurrence, security for school children is now ramped up by paramilitary forces guarding their schools.

Isn’t it puzzling how Muslims all over the world, regardless of host culture and ethnic group, can get it so wrong with the ‘true’ Islamic message of peace and harmony?
Perhaps a media release by the House of Saud can instruct all these millions of misunderstanders of Islam what Allah really meant, when he told Mohammed via Jibril to write down 109 verses inciting violence like this one:
Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”
Note this is not limited to a certain time or place, this is prescriptive in nature and a direct instruction from Allah. The whole text of the Koran is prescriptive and therefore comparable in gravity to the Ten Commandments, which are also believed to be the direct word of the Jewish and Christian God. In contrast the violent passages in the OT are related to a specific time and place in history, they are descriptive.
