140 slain as Muslims riot in China
Pamela: Remember those cuddly Uighurs whom theÂ Obama Administration wanted to release into the American civilian population?
Remember the Chinese Muslims (Uighurs) whom Obama released fromÂ GITMO to the beautiful pink beaches of BermudaÂ (on your dime)?Â Here areÂ pictures of the Chinese Muslims in Bermuda,Â on your dime. Their “brothers” in China are violently rioting and destroying.
“Hundreds of rioters have been arrested, the official Xinhua news agency reported, after rock-throwing Uighur people took to the streets of the regional capital on Sunday, some burning and smashing vehicles and confronting ranks of anti-riot police.”
hmmm -rock throwing, car burning, … just like muslims in “Palestine”, Paris, Pakistan, India,
“140 slain as Chinese riot police, Muslims clash in northwestern city,” by Barbara Demick for theÂ Los Angeles Times, July 6 (thanks to JW):
Muslims in China start riots, Fox headlines story “China Muslims Target of Deadly Riots”
“Rioters on Sunday overturned barricades, attacking vehicles and houses, and clashed violently with police, according to media and witness accounts. State television aired footage showing protesters attacking and kicking people on the ground. Other people, who appeared to be Han Chinese, sat dazed with blood pouring down their faces. The demonstrators had been demanding justice for two Uighurs killed last month during a fight with Han Chinese co-workers at a factory in southern China.”
So in what sense are the “China Muslims” the “target” here? It looks as if they are fairly efficiently targeting the Han Chinese.
But in the mainstream media, of course, Muslims areÂ alwaysÂ the victims, no matter what.
An update onÂ this story. “China Muslims Target of Deadly Riots,” fromÂ FoxNews, July 6 (thanks to JW):
Violent street battles killed at least 140 people and injured 828 others in the deadliest ethnic unrest to hit China’s western Xinjiang region in decades, and the Chinese government blamed Uighur exiles for stoking the unrest.

. . . even though the ones we were holding at Gitmo were trained in al-Qaeda-affiliated camps.Â
TheÂ Wall Street JournalÂ (as flagged in theÂ NROÂ web briefing)Â reportsÂ on rioting in China by Uighur “students” that has left scores dead and hundreds wounded. The “students,” described elsewhere in the story as from a “predominantly Muslim ethnic group[, which has] long chafed at restrictions on their civil liberties and religious practices imposed by a Chinese governmentÂ fearful of political dissent,” expressed their dissent by torching cars and buses, as well as â€” according to accounts of some witnesses to state-controlled media â€” rampagingÂ “with big knives stabbing people” on the street.
