Militants had no overseas terror links, official says

This is interesting if true. It means Islam inspired these attacks and not Al Queda.

Sep 16, 2011 The militant groups that launched three bloody attacks in Hotan and Kashgar in late July were homegrown and had no foreign terror links, Xinjiang authorities said yesterday as they released new details about the assailants….

Meanwhile, from AP:


BEIJING (AP) — A militant Muslim group claimed by video it carried out recent attacks in western China that killed at least three dozen people, a monitoring group said.

The video was purportedly made by the Turkistan Islamic Party, which seeks independence for China’s western Xinjiang region, the SITE Intelligence Group said this week. The militants are believed to be based in Pakistan, where security experts say core members have been trained by al-Qaida.

Xinjiang is home to largely Muslim ethnic Uighurs (pronounced WEE’-gur) who say they have been marginalized by an influx of China’s majority Han to the region. Ethnic riots there two years ago killed at least 197 people.

Security has been raised, but still, dozens were killed in slashings and arson and hit-and-run attacks in the cities of Hotan and Kashgar in July.

The more than 10-minute video released in late August features Turkistan Islamic Party leader Abdul Shakoor Damla, whose face is blotted out, saying those attacks were revenge against the Chinese government.

Ben Venzke, of Washington-based IntelCenter, another monitor of militant groups, said TIP threatened to attack the 2008 Beijing Olympics and should be taken seriously.

  1. China is wonderful buffer against Islam. It still believes in doing things the old fashioned way by knocking heads together. None of this stuff about out reach from Obama. However, Obama, despite being a Sunni Muslim fluent in English, Arabic and Indonesian is doing a great deal against Islam without realizing it. His push for alternative fuels means that ethanol will soon hit the The ethanol market share in the U.S. gasoline supply by volume grew from just over 1 percent in 2000 through less than 4 percent in 2006 to a peak of almost 10 percent in 2010,[5][6] and domestic production capacity has increased fifteen times since 1990, from 900 million of gallons back then, through 1.63 billion in 2000, reaching 13.5 billion gallons in 2010.

  2. Now of course we are in 2011 and we see the consequence of this in the impovrishment of the muslims as higher use of ethanol( which realies on wheat and corn) pushes up food prices. Food prices which the Chinese can afford but he muzzies can not. Hence, the food crisis in the land of the muzzie. The water crisis in the middle east. A friend of mine just came back from Saudi and he tells me that the price of a litre of water is extremely high. The muzzies peaked in 1979 with the oil price rises and the subsequent rise in militancy. Since then it has been down hill as they have stagnated or gone back in terms of economic well being. Meanwhile, China and India have charged ahead and now occupy two slots in the top five economies of the world.

  3. China will soon be number one and then they will deal with Islam, by which time the situation for the muzzies will be getting even more desparate. The rise of Asia, the rise of ethanol, and the decline of the economies of the muzzies will stop the jihad without us even having to worry as the muzzies starve to death.

  4. It seems that ethanol grows by 1 percent a year. In ten years it will be a whopping 2o percent. No more dependence on the muzzies at all. The muzzies by then will be paying more for the food as their own oil seriously runs dry especially for the kingpin of the jihad, the Saudis.

  5. The last ten years has been the States getting free of the muzzies by the use of ethanol and the unintended consquence of which is starvation for them as the price of wheat goes up and the newly rich asians price the muzzies out of the market by buying what they need. Also the US and China and India produce a vast share of the wheat in the world, leading to a situation where the infidels have the food. Even a Jihadist has to eat and must pay what they demand.
