"Hundreds, maybe thousands, of Chinese Uighurs fighting in Syria, warns Beijing expert

There are "many hundreds or thousands" of Chinese Uighurs from the country's western Xinjiang province involved with the Islamic State (IS) or other groups to wage jihad in Syria, according to a leading Chinese strategic expert who advises the government on its West Asia policy."

"Here are "many hundreds or thousands" of Chinese Uighurs from the country's western Xinjiang province involved with the Islamic State (IS) or other groups to wage jihad in Syria, according to a leading Chinese strategic expert who advises the government on its West Asia policy.

The Chinese jihadists, involved "not only with the IS but with other Syrian forces", posed "a major threat" to China if they returned home, warned Li Shaoxian, a long-term West Asia expert and the Vice President of the China Institutes of Contemporary International Relations, a Beijing think-tank with ties to the Ministry of State Security.

"Whether there are Chinese citizens involved in IS, the answer is certainly yes," he said in an interaction with journalists on Thursday.

"I don't have the specific number but I think there are possibly many hundreds, or thousands, of them. As a researcher I have been following the situation closely. I believe there are quite many Chinese citizens fighting in Syria, not just with the IS but also other forces in Syria, where there are all kinds of groups who have people fighting who are from China."

China has recently stepped up its diplomatic engagement with Syria, in recent weeks hosting both the Foreign Minister and top officials of the Syrian National Council representing opposition groups."

"

Li, who met with representatives from both the Syrian government and the council during their recent Beijing visits, said China was in a "unique" position to play a role in bringing about a political settlement. Referring to the divergent interests of both the United States and Russia, he said China was "the only major country without selfish interests involved" as Beijing "has no specific agenda."

Li did not say if the issue of Chinese Uighurs - an ethnic Turkic Muslim minority in China's western Xinjiang region - in Syria figured prominently during the recent talks, but described the matter as a serious concern for Beijing.

 

Remember those stabbing attacks? Hmm, maybe those "industrial accident" explosions Weren't at all?

"I believe this will be a major source or threat because if these people come back to the country of origin they could constitute a considerable threat to the security of the country of origin."

China says that Uighurs have been travelling to Turkey through Southeast Asia, and Beijing has accused Turkish missions in Southeast Asia of facilitating travel by issuing documents. In July, more than 100 Uighurs were repatriated from Thailand.

The move was criticised by rights groups who say the Uighurs were no terrorists but merely refugees fleeing persecution in China. While Beijing labelled them all as separatists who wanted to join jihad, rights groups have pointed out there were women and children among the group, which was detained on return to China.

Uighur exile groups say the majority of hundreds of travellers who are leaving China for Southeast Asia are doing so to escape what they describe as religious persecution from the authorities."

"

Li, however, pointed to a group of Uighurs who carried out a mass knife attack on a railway station in Kunming in south China in March 2014, stabbing 29 people to death. Chinese authorities said the 8 knife-wielding and apparently trained attackers had tried - and failed - to travel to Southeast Asia and then to West Asia join jihad, before carrying out the attack.

"If you remember the terror attack in Kunming train station, it is very clear these people wanted to travel to another destination via Southeast Asia," he said. "According to material I have seen, I know that some IS elements are responsible in Southeast Asia to organise these people and bring them to Syria."

Li said media reports of China considering joining Russia in a military role in the conflict were inaccurate, saying China had neither the intention nor capability to play a military role, even if Beijing was stepping up diplomatic engagement.

"First, it is against China's principle -- China's forces overseas are only overseas for peacekeeping and China has contributed a lot to peacekeeping of the UN, but has never contributed military for [other] purposes. And frankly China is not powerful enough, unlike the US or Russia, to send personnel or equipment overseas. China doesn't have the capabilities to do that, so it is not going to happen," he said."

wtf!? honestly? What are they offering them to make them join IS, etal? An idea of principles? What kind of principles cause you to behead, etc. But we must keep in mind that this org. is a creation of the "state", when I say "state" I mean several nations who are funding and controlling them in order to achieve an evil agenda against common people who only want to live a normal life, raise their kids, have food and shelter, etc. Have to keep them scared to justify the existence of that control apparatus.

Make yourself relevant!  (Government's battle cry against the people everywhere!)

Yeah what exactly IS the draw to this organized insanity? Well, we know that the ones that act on their beliefs have one thing in common. They become Muslim. It's a celebration of everything Good and sane in the world. :JSfrXsb:

Since Islam creates a state of mind that puts people under complete control, I think you might be right that they have a screw missing somewhere to start with. Usually people who have nothing to lose in their current situation are ripe for picking by cults. The state creates hopelessness and economic pain for people, they probably think they are fighting against the very people they are working for. What a tangled web of shite this is!

In China men outnumber women by about 33 million.
Maybe it's the promises of 72 virgins if they die for Allah?

Who will be the next to fall? Germany? Sweden? I can't see China letting it happen. I wonder why Italy is not threatened.  No, I don't. The Pope is in league with the Zionists. Their goal is of course the One World Government. I think I may live to see it after all. Lucky me! :blink:

Yup, the Pope is either in cahoots with them or believes the crap he spews. "“every authentic practice of religion cannot fail to promote peace.”".

This article is really good, lays out the Pope's recent speech and the idiocy he bases his views on: http://www.jihadwatch.org/2016/01/hugh-fitzgerald-francis-far-from-infallible

The man is either completely blind, or a true charlatan.
