HOW CHINESE LEADERS INTERACT WITH CHINESE MUSLIMS.
In 1990, before starting my journey of China’s Great Wall, I spent a few days in Xinjiang, China’s notorious renegade province. I came face-to-face with Muslims…who looked like a combination of Asians and Turks. I was shocked when--several years ago, several Muslims Women were elected to the United States Congress. DON'T VOTERS REMEMBER the horror of 9/11 and America's promise to "NEVER FORGET"?!?!?!?
Xinjiang (Shen-Jong) Province is located along China’s western border between Turkey and China. Xinjiang is the "official" home of Chinese Muslims. Chinese Leaders keep Chinese Muslims under constant surveillance as they seek to control and limit every Muslim living inside China.
From time to time.... the residents of Xinjiang get overly-confident and venture into other provinces to bomb buses, steal, murder, or create general unrest and violence. Those are the times when the Chinese Government simply instructs the military to line up the suspects and their families....and shoot every one of them. That solves the problem for a few years until----the Muslim Brotherhood pays more recruits to stir-up trouble and the process begins all-over again.
For decades… the Chinese Government considered constructing a wall around Xinjiang to imprison every Muslim inside. The Chinese Government doesn’t believe in public-complaining, threats, demonstrations,riots, or allowing problems to fester. Traditionally, when faced with a problem, Chinese Leadership acts quickly with a show of strong force and absolute--finality.
After living in China for ten years and watching their reaction to Muslims growing agitation...the Chinese Government has clearly moved far-beyond the idea of spending money or time on a wall to contain those in Xinjiang province.
I won't be surprised when..one of these days--very soon--Chinese Leaders will tire of the Muslim Drama, quietly say “enough” then--- shoot-to-kill every Muslim in China.
Chinese Leaders don’t get mad----they get even.
