China ‘strikes hard’ against “thugs throwing explosive devices and setting police cars on fire”

Eight Uighur headbangers met their virgins when they firebombed a police station and attacked the police with knifes. I guess they didn’t get the memo about not bringing a knife to a gun fight:

Chinese police kill eight in Xinjiang ‘terrorist attack’

(Reuters) – Chinese police shot dead eight people during a “terrorist attack” in the western region of Xinjiang on Monday, the government said, raising the death toll from violent clashes there to at least 35 since November.

 The attack happened in Yarkand county close to the old Silk Road city of Kashgar in Xinjiang’s south, the regional government said in a statement on its news website (

“At around 6:30 a.m., nine thugs carrying knives attacked a police station in Kashgar’s Yarkand county, throwing explosive devices and setting police cars on fire,” it said.

“The police took decisive measures, shooting dead eight and capturing one,” it added, labeling the incident a “violent terrorist attack” which was being investigated.

Xinjiang is home to a Turkic-speaking, Muslim people known as Uighurs, some of whom resent what they see as oppressive treatment by the government.

At least 91 people, including several police officers, have been killed in violence in Xinjiang since April, according to state media reports.

This month, police shot and killed 14 people during a riot near Kashgar in which two policemen were also killed.

In a similar outburst of violence, at least nine civilians and two policemen were killed when a group of people armed with axes and knives attacked a police station, also near Kashgar, last month, state media has said.

China has previously blamed some of the violence in Xinjiang on Islamist militants plotting holy war.


The latest attack showed the serious threat posed by separatism, extremism and terrorism, China’s Foreign Ministry spokesman Qin Gang told reporters at a regular press briefing.

“The Chinese government will strike hard against them in accordance with the law,” Qin said.

Many Uighurs chafe at restrictions on their culture, language and religion, though the government insists it grants them broad freedoms.

Rights groups and exiles say police often use often heavy-handed tactics against the Uighur community. Violence has broken out previously when groups of Uighurs protest at police stations, they say.

Dilxat Raxit, spokesman for the main Uighur exile group, the World Uyghur Congress, said the international community should prevent China from continuing its “repressive policies” against Uighurs.

“Directly firing on and killing protesters and accusing them of so-called terror is currently China’s post-judicial reform means of repressing the Uighur people. Uighurs endure China’s discrimination and humiliation and are facing a crisis for survival and faith,” he said in an emailed statement.

China has stepped up security in Xinjiang after a vehicle ploughed into tourists on the edge of Beijing’s Tiananmen Square in October, killing three people in the car and two bystanders.

China said the attack was carried out by Islamist militants.

Xinjiang has been the scene of numerous incidents of unrest in recent years, which the government often blames on the separatist East Turkestan Islamic Movement, even though many experts and rights groups cast doubt on its existence as a cohesive group.

Many rights groups say China has long overplayed the threat posed to justify its tough controls in energy-rich Xinjiang, which lies strategically on the borders of Central Asia, India and Pakistan.

whereas civilised people would do everything to protect their children from harm, Koranimals deliberately use children as human shields and claim victimhood if something happens to them, a clear abuse of all humanitarian principles, but an essential part of Mohammedan warfare:

  1. Damn, number 9, the survivor is in for a wild ride with the Chinese authorities.

    Excellent article by Ms. McIntosh and she is correct. It does boil down to the real issue being “It should be borne grimly in mind that Muslims if living within an infidel state where they cannot and do not totally dominate the surrounding infidels, and in which they are subjected to Infidel laws, will always complain of being ‘persecuted’ and ‘oppressed’.”

    Really, who wants to live like a Muslim? They offer nothing of value to any society that they choose to enter, not even in their own home countries.

    The future lies with all nonMuslim countries. The past is Islam, where it likes to wallow.

  2. the more they fight. the more $$$ they get from gulf states who compete with each other to “sponsor” such actions around the world. it will continue till states run out of money. or—
