How Washington Worries Chinese Uygurs


On Monday, the Chinese authorities requested to the entire international community, urging it to show “high vigilance” and at the same time intensify cooperation in the fight against terrorism. The reason for such an ardent statement was the actions of Uygur Islamist militants in the north-west of Xinjiang Province, where they clashed with government forces.

Information on the clash in Xinjiang was confirmed by the official representative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the PRC, Hong Lei, who stated that the militants were in "collusion" with international terrorist groups. He did not name “al Qaeda” directly, but said among other things:

“This not only seriously undermines China’s national security, but also creates threats to other countries of the world and destroys stability. The international community must be on high alert and step up a joint struggle against all terrorist organizations. ”

Anonymous officials from China who are responsible for the fight against terrorism, said in parallel that the leaders of terrorist organizations from the so-called "Eastern Turkestan" are sending their militants to Syria - to participate in jihadism.

Meanwhile, the Chinese government supports President Assad in Syria. The militants are fighting on the side of the “opposition”, which is trying to create a Shariah state in Syria - instead of a secular one.

The Eastern Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM) and the East-Turkestan Association for Education and Solidarity (ETESA) in their struggle for the “independence” of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region have intensified since the 1990s. Uygur Muslims of Turkic origin oppose the Chinese there. Since May 2012, the Islamic Movement of East Turkestan and the East-Turkestan Association for Education and Solidarity, speaking with Al-Qaeda, send their “fighters” to Syria, where these guys are fighting for the money and rations fighting against the Al-Assad government. It is believed that they penetrate into Syria across the Turkish border, although the Turks deny this.

ETIM in China is involved in drug trafficking, as well as trafficking in human beings and weaponsin addition, members of this organization are involved in robberies and abductions for ransom. ETIM is a gathering of separatists and criminals who once fled from Xinjiang and studied terrorism abroad. So say Chinese officials.

As for ETESA, its activities are aimed at “educating and training Muslims” in Xinjiang and “their liberation”, which will be achieved through the creation of a Muslim state.

Ii. Autonomy and extremism

Bao Hongbiao, a fellow at the Academy of Social Sciences in Ningxia, saysthat the Uighur Muslims, who were repressed by the government in the western province of Xinjiang, failed to assimilate to the local population. Part of the problem consists of insurmountable language differences: the Uigurs speak their own Turkic dialect and write in Arabic. In addition, they have a strong desire for autonomy. Finally, they are characterized by national extremism, which explains the “stern” approach of the Chinese government to them.

“Some Uighurs in Xinjiang are extremists. They want to secede from China, ”Bao says.

Alim Seitov, President of the American Uighur Association, saysthat the government constantly forbids the Uighurs to practice Islam. In addition, the Han population in Xinjiang, thanks to government policies that encourage migration to the west of the country, has increased dramatically: from 6,7% in 1949 to 40 percent in 2008. This contributed to the incitement of ethnic hatred, including due to the problem of resources and jobs.

Seitov believes that the policy of the Chinese government is like a message to the Uyghur people: give up your faith, or you will be accused of extremism, even if you just express your religious beliefs. All these measures, according to Seitov, "further alienated the Uygurs from the Chinese - if only this was possible at all."

In July, 2009, riots broke out in the regional capital of Xinjiang, Urumqi, as a result of which, around 200, people from Han and Uygur were killed. The Chinese government attacked the province with repression.

Human Rights Organization “Human Right Watch” sounding the alarm: While Beijing supports the Muslim religion, for example, in Ningxia, this is far from the case in Xinjiang. Here, minors (up to 18 years) are prohibited from participating in Islamic practice, and therefore thousands of people are detained every year for “illegal religious activities”.

It is strictly forbidden to celebrate religious holidays and study religious texts in public institutions, including schools. In fact, human rights activists believe that Xinjiang for Beijing belongs to the same broad category of political problems as Taiwan or Tibet. The very requirement of secession or autonomy is already seen in Beijing as a threat to the preservation or viability of the Chinese state.

“Religious extremism is closely linked to violence and terrorism, and fighting it is one of our top priorities,” said government spokesman Hou Han.

Thus, the Chinese authorities unequivocally identify the Uygur separatists as enemies of the state. The Uighurs themselves, inclined to nationalism and terrorism, add fuel to the fire.

And if human rights defenders from Human Right Watch, and at the same time from Amnesty International, are demanding to defend the Uygur rights, then in Washington they approach this issue bilaterally, so to speak.

Iii. Bilateral approach

The Uyghur question is an ideal example of the application of the US double standards policy.

Как пишет Tatyana Kaukenova, when Uygur separatism intensified in 1990's, the United States drew attention to Xinjiang: this region has an important strategic position (common borders with Afghanistan, Pakistan, Russia, and the states of Central Asia). Separatism in Xinjiang received the official name of the “movement for national self-determination” in the United States. And no terrorism. B double standards too.

The implementation of the past has contributed to the date 9 / 11. The military campaigns in Afghanistan and then in Iraq demanded a single logic throughout the world's space. In addition, China joined the fight against international terrorism, quite timely declaring that it is highly susceptible to terrorist attacks - just by the Uyghur separatists associated with Al-Qaeda.

And 26 August 2002, the US State Department and official Beijing announced that the East Turkestan Islamic Movement (ETIM) is now included in the list of international terrorist organizations. 28 August all financial assets of this organization in the United States were frozen. Moreover, the relevant State Department document stated that ETIM is responsible for all the atrocities committed for 11 years in China. 11 September 2002 of the year and the UN included ETIM in the list of international terrorist organizations - in accordance with the resolutions No. 1267 and 1390 of the Security Committee.

Apart from the East Turkestan Islamic Movement, the United States did not recognize any separatist groups in Xinjiang as terrorist. This is where the double standards of American politics emerged. The fact is that Washington’s support for the “peaceful struggle of the Uyghur people for national self-determination” has by no means ceased. As it turned out, the Uyghur map for the United States is convenient as a potential lever of pressure on a growing China.

T. Kaukenova writes:

“The friendly attitude of Western countries towards the representatives of the Uyghur liberation movement is also not a secret. The main centers of this support are the United States and Germany. In 2005, the United States adopted one of the most active fighters for national self-determination of the Uyghur people - Rabiya Kadyr, who established the International Uyghur Foundation for Human Rights and Democracy in the United States and became president of the American Uighurs Association. After that, Ms. Kadır was elected President of the World Uygur Congress (WUC).

As for the international structures led by Rabiya Kadir in support of the Uigurs, the fact of funding by their US government is not a secret. A week after the 5-7 riots in July 2009, in Urumqi, which killed 197 people and more than 1,6 thousand were injured, US State Department spokesman Ian Kelly confirmed that the Uygur World Congress accepted funding from the US National Donors Foundation for Democracy. It is worth noting that these funds come mainly from the United States Congress. According to the Renmin Jibao, the American Uighur Association received each year from the US National Donor Foundation for the Defense of Democracy in the form of funding $ 215 thousand. By the way, in the July tragedy, the leadership of the PRC accused the US-based MSC. ”

And there was no direct condemnation of China in connection with the bloody events of July 2009 from official Washington. Rabiya Kadir insisted on opening the US consulate in Urumqi (“beacon of freedom”), but her call was lost in vain.

Currently in Guantanamo prison still sit three Uighurs (nineteen of their compatriots were transferred to other countries from 2008 onwards). Before the election of 2008, Obama promised to close Guantanamo, but this is also in the area of ​​double standards. 166 is now languishing in this prison - although Obama promised to release all the prisoners within three years of his inauguration.

Thus, Barack Obama, the crisis president, has been wondering all these years how to play the Uyghur card. One thing is clear now: Obama will remain in power, or Romney will replace him, the United States will continue to support the "right to self-determination of the Uyghur people." Because neither Obama nor Romney will give up the role of leader, which the United States should, in their opinion, continue to play on the world stage. Former hegemon is difficult to accept a multipolar world of free will, and therefore China for America is first a geopolitical adversary, and only then a trade and industrial partner. The hegemon does not tolerate the strengthening of its neighbors around the globe, and therefore it will be slowly little by little to sway China from the inside.

As for the fight against terrorism, it, as before, will perfectly illustrate the State Department’s democratic approaches. The United States does not object to Al-Qaida’s participation in the war against the Syrian government, but Al-Qaida is officially listed as one of the main enemies of the American people. Similarly, Washington considers the terrorist organization ETIM to be terrorist, but does not object to the struggle of the Uyghur people for self-determination, in which the Eastern Turkestan Islamic Movement sets the tone.

      согласен, с начала американцы создают организации затем объявляют её террористической и предлагают решение проблемы параллельно помогают этим организациям, получается каша которую расхлебывают все,что касается уйгуров то с момента принятия ислама они стали задирать соседей соседи их стали в ответ бить поэтому превратились в "притеснителей" и "угнетателей" "свободного" уйгурского и это относится ко многим народам исповедующих ислам

        You don’t know anything about Islam. Study the history, at least, it used to be the territory of the Golden Horde, 1312-1342 Khan Uzbek converted to Islam and made it a state government! Then the Uyghurs didn’t like nations
        In 1279, becoming the ruler of the north-west of China, Ananda converted to this religion the 150 thousand Mongols who were under his rule, and the entire population of his area (Tanguts, Chinese), immigrants from Central Asia. Already in the XIV century. they formed a single community of Hui (Chinese - “Muslims”) - residents of China, who spoke mostly Chinese by this time. According to unofficial data, more than 100 million Muslims live in China, and 65 million and 40000 mosques according to official figures.
        China is also multinational, if anyone has seen the northern Chinese and the southern, then he will understand that these are 2 different peoples.

            Something you Guin completely historical facts perverted. Uyghurs as a people have been known since ancient times. It was they who, with a sudden attack on the headquarters, scattered the First Turkic Haganate in the 8th century. It was they who converted the Turkic runes into a capital Turkic script. And Xinjiang - East Turkestan has never been part of the Golden Horde. He entered the Chagatai ulus, and then into Mogolistan.

            Finally, Xinjiang, translated from Chinese as the New Frontier, became part of China in 1860, after the signing between the Russian emperor and the Chinese goddess of the Beijing Treaty, delimiting the spheres of colonial possessions of Russia and the Celestial Empire. Russia Semirechye - southeast of Kazakhstan, China Xinjian.

            Since then, Uyghur uprisings for independence have flared up regularly. In 1946, Xinjian was actually liberated from Chinese troops. Beijing invited the leadership of the liberation movement to meet in Beijing to negotiate Xinjiang’s independence. Provided for this plane. 16 leaders of the uprising flew on this plane to Beijing. In the air, the plane exploded. The headless independence movement, after that, was crushed. The popular movement intensified again in the 90s.

            As always, the liberation movement, as the dominant idea, is adjoined by a variety of political forces. From religious orthodox to liberal democrats. And they use different methods of struggle. Enlightened forces are fighting against the Chinese army and government institutions in China. Islamic orthodoxy applies terror methods to everything.

            These orthodox people were recognized by the US government for the terrorist organization. And at the same time, the United States supports those forces of the Uyghur people who demand independence without using terror methods.

            All is correct. And there are no double standards. The USA recognizes the right of the Uyghur people to independence. And at the same time, bus explosions with civilians who hold Islamic orthodox do not recognize.

            The Chinese government is strenuously advocating the idea that any liberation movement is terrorist. By this, securing his right to possess, the power captured by Xinjiang. Therefore, China supports Assad. Since China is also ready to apply Assad’s methods to Tibet and Xinjiang, if they arise. So that the world community could not, by UN resolutions, intervene in the possible bloodshed in Xinjiang and Tibet, as is now happening in Syria, where the UN cannot take effective measures because of the taboos of China.

      Russia has already set a precedent when it allowed Kosovo to secede (more precisely, it wasn’t enough to stop it) and the second time it separated South Ossetia from Georgia.2 precedents. And you shouldn’t refuse to support the Uyghurs. Not in an open and bright form. But all the same, leverage influences It’s worth it to fuck. Because whatever the Far East says, it’s a threat.

    The situation in the Uyghur autonomies was tense to the limit. In 2009, the PLA introduced a small army into this autonomy, let’s say there was a Uyghur rebellion. According to the media, the picture was not quite complete, the Chinese brutally crushed the rebellion so that others were not guilty, as well as a warning. Any attempts at mutiny The PLA will suppress quickly and cruelly. For us, a clash with the PLA will lead to a disastrous result.

    The Chinese are tough guys, they don’t particularly stand on ceremony. A few years ago, the Uighurs were already buzzing there, so Beijing did not bother and sent in troops. As a result, the rebellion was crushed so to say: with an extremely high degree of cruelty. With terrorists the only way it is necessary!
    It is rightly noted in the article that Uyghurs are prone to separatism, etc., and on the basis of religion, the slate will be demolished by anyone. If the Chinese believe that Islam is healing negative processes, it is logical to take measures to reduce its influence.

    But everything could be different ...
    Meanwhile, the uprising of the Ospan Islam-uly was supported by the Kazakhs living in Altai, Tarbagatai and Ili district. The Soviet consul wrote to Dekanozov: "The Kazakh group headed by Ospan under favorable conditions can play a decisive role in the preparation of a new Kazakh uprising in Altai." Later, Stalin called the Ospan-Batyr a “social bandit,” however, in view of the change in the priorities of the central Chinese government in Xinjiang, Moscow made a temporary bet on the Kazakhs and Uyghurs. The weapons of the insurgents of Ospan Islam-uly were supplied by the Mongols - the delivery of one of the parties was provided by the son of Sukhebator Damdin. In the spring of 1944, Ospan-Batyr took several thousand of his fellow tribesmen to Mongolia, who refused to comply with the requirements of the authorities, to move to the southern part of Xinjiang, with Mongolian and Soviet aircraft covering the withdrawal from the air.
    In 1943, with the assistance of Soviet intelligence, the organization of freedom of East Turkestan "Azat Tashkilaty" was created. On November 8, 1944, the underground Military Revolutionary Committee, which met in the city of Gulja, announced the beginning of an armed uprising. By order of Beria in December 1944, the Department of Special Tasks of the NKVD of the USSR was formed. His main tasks were to lead and assist the national liberation movement of Xinjiang Muslims. Then, a group of people who underwent special training in the Medeu region was formed from among the local residents. Then she was abandoned in Xinjiang, where she proceeded to create partisan detachments. The commander of one of them was Tatar Faty Muslim, a native of Dzharkent, later he took a responsible post in the military department of the East Turkestan Republic.

Mao Zedong called the revolution in the three districts of Xinjiang part of the Chinese revolution, and delegates from the East Turkestan Republic were also invited to Beijing. The delegation departed on August 27, but when flying through the Gobi, the plane crashed and crashed, passengers and crew died. A new delegation was sent to Beijing, led by Sayfutdin Azizov, who agreed to the East Turkestan Republic joining the newly formed People’s Republic of China.

          On November 12, 1944, the East Turkestan Republic (WTR) was formed in the city of Gulja. Its leadership, led by Mullah Alikhan-Ture (Alikhan Tura Sagoni), an ethnic Uzbek who created the Freedom Organization of East Turkestan in 1943 in Kulja, was anti-Chinese and pro-Muslim. The government included Uighurs Akhmetzhan Kasymov, Hakimbek-Khoja, Rakhimdzhan Sabirkhodzhaev, Tatars Anvar Musabaev and Nabiev, Kazakhs Urahan and Abdulkhair, Russian emigrants Ivan Polinov and Fotiy Leskin, Kalmyk Fucha. On January 5, 1945, at the fourth meeting of the Provisional Government of the World Trade Organization, the 9 Point Manifesto was adopted. According to this document, the dominance of the Chinese was abolished on the territory of East Turkestan, and a sovereign republic was created with the equal rights of all nationalities, the need for the development of industry, agriculture, livestock, private trade, and the improvement of the material well-being of the people was proclaimed. The government announced its intention to support Islam, as the religion of most of the population of East Turkestan, but at the same time proclaimed freedom and protection of other religions. The development of culture, education and health was also declared; establishing friendly relations with all democracies, and especially with the government of the USSR, bordering East Turkestan; networking with the Chinese government in the economic and political fields; organization of an army of representatives of all nationalities of East Turkestan; nationalization of banks, post offices, telegraph, forest and natural resources; the elimination of the harmful manifestations of individualism, red tape, nationalism, greed and corruption .
          After leaving the political arena, Alikhan-Ture (he was arrested by Soviet security agencies, was taken to the USSR and lived in Tashkent until his death in 1976, where he wrote a book about the prophet Muhammad), the Provisional Government was reorganized and frankly pro-Soviet groups came to power . The army of the republic, numbering about 30 thousand people, was under Soviet control. The army, the main organizer of which was Minister Akhmetzhan Kasymov, was created in April 1945 from detachments of partisan volunteers. Basically, it consisted of Uyghurs, the Chinese were not drafted into the army. The second largest nationality in the army became Russian emigrants. The army consisted of two infantry divisions and a separate cavalry regiment, commanded by a former white officer, Colonel Fotiy Ivanovich Leskin. Successfully operating in the Tarbagatai and Altai districts, he formed a cavalry brigade and a separate infantry battalion on the basis of the regiment .//////////////
          In 1955, the WTR finally ceased to exist as an independent state, becoming the Chinese province of the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region. So in the mid-1950s, after the death of Stalin, the period of Soviet influence in Xinjiang ended. This coincided with the conclusion, by the decision of Khrushchev, of the Soviet troops from Manchuria and the transfer of all bases of the ground forces and the navy of the USSR to China9. At the same time, the joint-stock companies Sovkitmetall and Sovkitneft were liquidated. Soviet specialists, most of the Russian emigrants and more than 150 thousand Kazakhs who received assistance from the Soviet government during the resettlement left Xinjiang. //////

    Uigurs live in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan, they do not assimilate with us, on the contrary, they live separately, they are very united, smart, I haven’t met a single Uighur who spoke Russian with an accent, that is, they speak pure Russian Knowing his own well, understanding all the Turkic languages. With regard to his state, it was already 10 ages and stretched from Tuva to the Himalayas. The people-creator, no less ancient than those Chinese women, are very religious. In conclusion, I’ll say that In the near future, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan will face problems with both the Uighurs and the Dungans, this is my opinion, I hope it is erroneous.

    Я вот одного не пойму, особенно Guun, мы сейчас что должны сделать? Мы сейчас должны в один голос сказать - ууу Китай плохой, что мы вообще знаем об этой проблеме? У нас своих хватает. Помнится мне что с Тибетом Китай то же долго не рассусоливал. И ничего, все живут и все довольны, даже Далай-Лама( а чего ему вообще то волноваться). Тот же господин Guun попытался перевести стрелки на Россию, дескать НОАК это что то из ряда вон выходящего, дескать она вся окутана тайной. А тайной она окутана во многом потому что Китай во многом выдает желаемое за действительное. И вот эти спекуляции на тему войны с Китаем - я считаю неумелой "геополитической" проституцией.

          He is about the righteous in paradise - he says.
          Numerically - 73 ... daily girls.
          If they are also the same - this is fraught with glitches.
          If they are different, then specifically, to the righteous, it does not matter. Non-violent.
          Talking about religion (anyone, by the way) as you say is not serious.
          Simply put - frivolously.
          The attitude will be the same.
          It saddens me more that little is said about the women in the Qur'an.
          If every faithful .. nightly by 73 boy was driven, it would be cool.
          In Pakistan ... women began to pound for this. For infringement of the rights to the afterlife.
          Cool so you can .... fool around. True?

        Раз уж начали так аргументируйте. А то сказал свое -фи и на этом все. Черт с ним, пускай мы плохие и религия наша неправильная, пускай. Обмани и убей неверного - пускай. Раз уж Вы такие "правильные". А сами то кто? Почему своих же единоверцев обманываете, убиваете, в рабство захватываете, своим же наркоту толкаете, алкоголь пьете в тихую. Распутством занимаетесь. Это Вы у себя в странах(республиках) такие все из себя правильные. А как на свободу вырвались - так во все тяжкие. И Вы нам диктуете как правильно жить? Да единственного достойного кого я припоминаю из истории, это - Салах ад-Дин. Он сказал что нам делить нечего, что мы должны в мире жить. А иначе война между нами истребит всех. Чего то я не вижу что бы Вы следовали его заповедям. Как быть с тем что у бедных семей забирают детей(за копейки) и воспитывают экстремистов и террористов смертником. Прикрываясь красивыми словами и идеями посылают их на смерть. Почему же те, кто этим детям промывает мозги сами не одевают пояса шахидов? Да все потому что все что они вбивают в головы детей - ложь. И не подрывают они себя из за того что денежков много и жить ой как охота, и жить красиво. Все эти "пророки" современности что вещают и выносят мозг бедноте - сами очень не плохо чувствуют себя пользуясь благами цивилизации. И м не чужды блага богатой жизни(хорошие машины, особняки и солидный счет в банке). А взрывает себя кто - беднота с промытыми мозгами и с лживой верой о рае на небесах. Чего то я не припомню что бы теракты совершали обеспеченные и преуспевающие мусульмане. Или это не так?

Это словно о Вас сказано. Не примите в обиду. Не буду комментировать Ваш опус с 5-ю пунктами. Совершенно излишне. Просто примите совет. Не позорьтесь перед людьми и быстренько его удалите.

    ни один из комментаторов как-то не вспомнил, что уйгуры "отошли" к Китаю благодаря Великому Кормчему и НОАК. причем последняя применялась в полном формате: танки, артиллерия, авиация. и наверняка среди уйгуров немало в живых, кто помнит это "воссоединение". и вы считаете, что они просто обязаны обожать хунхузов и цитировать Мао?
    By the way, in the 60s, when Mao captured the Uyghurs, the Soviet Union opened the border and received very many refugees on its territory (I don’t remember exactly about a million). Was the USSR bad too?

      classical Islam does not deny that there are other religions and everyone believes in God. but categorically forbids it to do evil by the name of Allah. BUT (forgive me, I myself believe in Allah), today religion has become like the right interpreted as it favors either other clans, i.e. To some extent, there is a policy of double standards. And they allow us to make such mistakes in the United States, in a country where morality, spirituality, etc.

            But sometimes in order to save a person it is necessary to kill. Honestly, I’m not sure that you’re right, but I won’t argue without combining facts either. I know one thing in the Caucasus that traditions are closely intertwined with religion. And given the fact that I belong to the mountain people there are more traditions than religions, religion slowly begins to increase influence. Therefore, in the war for the Karabakh, I will certainly kill enemies with shouts:

We have more than enough of this column in the Caucasus, and now also Tatars and Bashkiria. In China, the Uyghurs will be the conductor of the Muslim brothers. The Chinese economy, upon closer inspection, is rather fragile, and from a creeping civil war in the cities it can even collapse if the Mujahideen throw up their weapons and ammunition regularly.
