How China muzzled its Bat Woman: Beijing authorities hushed up the findings of a scientist who unlocked the genetic make-up of the coronavirus within days of the outbreak – which is vital for tests and vaccines
Shi Zhengli, a virologist known as China’s ‘Bat Woman’, sequenced the genes of the novel coronavirus in three days but her findings were suppressed
Told you this virus was manufactured in a lab – this is the worst kept secret in the world
- Shi Zhengli, a virologist known as China’s ‘Bat Woman’, sequenced the genes of the novel coronavirus in three days but her findings were suppressed
- Their findings showed it was similar to SARS, a respiratory disease that sparked an epidemic in 33 countries after emerging from China in 2002
- Yanyi Wang, director of the Wuhan Institute of Virology, sent an email to staff and key officials ordering them not to disclose information on the disease
A Chinese scientist who is one of the world’s leading experts on coronaviruses was ‘muzzled’ after unravelling the genetic composition of the new disease, which is crucial for developing diagnostic tests and vaccines.
The revelation will fuel fresh concerns over China‘s cover-up of the pandemic after it erupted in the city of Wuhan. Critics argue that Communist Party chiefs frustrated efforts to contain the outbreak before it exploded around the world.
At the centre of the new claims is Shi Zhengli, known as China’s ‘Bat Woman’ after years spent on difficult virus-hunting expeditions in dank caves that have led to a series of important scientific discoveries.
The virologist was called back to her high-security laboratory in Wuhan at the end of last year after a mysterious new respiratory condition in the city was identified as a novel coronavirus – and within three days she completed its gene sequencing.
A virology lab like the one Shi Zhengli completed the gene sequencing of the coronavirus. Continue reading
Labor MP Shaoquett Moselmane needs to go, not only because of this, but he is constantly giving antisemitic speeches in parliament as per his ideology.

What a dog!
China cannot continue to rise the way that it has within a West-designed world order, in a Western-designed global financial system, and in a West-controlled international legal trade structure dominated and controlled by Western powers….
The only way for China to reach its potential is for China to force a change to the rules and create a new world order… The rules have to change…
[China] needs greater control of the global media which it plans. Global media and the engine of social media are in the hands of China’s opponents. The Arab Spring has seen the power of Western propaganda satellites in manipulating and misinforming the public leading the Arab world to chaos and the result has been death and destruction. Today China has been able to block that intrusion into China’s internal affairs….
Moselmane’s conspiracy theories and antagonism to the West is of deep concern, coming from an Australian politician.
Does he not think the Chinese communists actually have too much control over the media, imposing harsh censorship? Does he not think that China is actually smashing the world order by stealing the South China Sea, to the especial disadvantage not of the West but of China’s Asian neighbours – Vietnam and the Philippines? Does he not see that China’s astonishing rise has in fact created under the “Western” system he now denounces? Does he not see that China is actually a communist dictatorship?
Why is this man a Labor MP? What kind of interests and hatreds does he represent and reinforce?
I agree with Professor Clive Hamilton:
Who wrote it? It’s the worst kind of propaganda from Beijing. It’s extraordinary. What struck me is he is saying what China needs to rule the world is to control the world’s media.
Jewish advocacy groups are “cancerous” and “malicious” and try to “deny, misinform and scaremonger”. A NSW Labor politician voiced these incendiary words — the first NSW Muslim MP, in fact, Shaoquett Moselmane. He didn’t utter them in the privacy of his own home. He felt comfortable enough broadcasting this anti-semitic sentiment within the walls of the NSW Parliament.
This is terrifying in itself. The MP, who ironically decried racism in his first speech to parliament, made the remarks just two years ago, in May 2013. He was not shouted-out of the high office he holds for racist commentary. On the contrary, Labor continues to support him and Moselmane is now a vocal advocate behind a push to ban Labor MPs from visiting Israel on trips funded by Jewish organisations.
Moselmane denies being anti-Semitic or racist and sued Markson for writing the above – only to drop his claim just before it went to trial. There’s someone who – it seems to me – indeed believes in more control over the media.
I will always say and do what is right, even in the face of trash that I have read in the Australian Israeli media. One or two reporters writing in the Murdoch press—namely the Australian—have been attacking me and denying the truth of Israel’s occupation of Palestinian land and the killing and dehumanising of the Palestinian people.
That is utter garbage. I accept the right of people to express their views, even when they are wrong, naive, ill informed, indoctrinated and blinded by the power of a political lobby group that is cancerous, malicious and seeks to deny, misinform and scaremonger. What I do take exception to is foreigners intervening in the rights of Australian politicians to speak out. Therefore, I say to the Israeli ambassador, Yuval Rotem, “Butt out and stay out. Your perceived right to bully as you do in the Middle East does not extend to the Australian political arena.”
In today’s Australian Cassandra Wilkinson, lacking journalistic integrity and informed knowledge of Israeli occupation of Arab land, … conveniently attacks others in the New South Wales Parliament who simply dare to criticise—as any ethical or moral person would do—the State of Israel’s illegal and criminal practices against the Palestinian people.
I applaud all Muslim and Arab leaders for speaking out on these and other issues. I call on the Australian Arab Muslim community to unite and for once to speak with one Australian voice. I ask them to protect the right of their community to speak out and deliver a message of peace and citizenship on behalf of their community so that neither they nor their messages are misconstrued or misunderstood.
That’s “a message of peace”?
A CLAIM made in NSW Parliament last week by Opposition Whip in the Legislative Council, Shaoquett Moselmane, that no Jews in pre-State Israel were “ever harmed” by Palestinians, has outraged political and communal leaders.
And subsequent comments by the Lebanese-born MLC that labelled the late Shimon Peres as being partly responsible for “the uprooting of the Palestinian people” have been condemned by NSW MPs, including Opposition Leader Luke Foley, who called them “disappointing and inappropriate”.
The tirade was launched by Moselmane during a debate about a condolence motion for Peres…
“Neither Palestinian Muslim nor Palestinian Christian ever harmed the Jewish people of Palestine,” Moselmane charged.
“Yet history can objectively recall and show the harm done to innocent Palestinians in their thousands in the many massacres – including Deir Yassin.”
That prompted quick condemnation from NSW Jewish Board of Deputies CEO Vic Alhadeff, who … referred to many recorded cases of Jews being killed during the British Mandate, most notably the 1929 massacres when 133 Jews were killed, the April 1948 Hadassah convoy massacre when 78 Jews were slain, and countless deadly terrorist attacks.
Why does Labor continue to preselect such a man?
Is this evidence that Muslim immigration is also the immigration of a culture very hostile to our democratic own?
