My take on the Ughyur problem

Hello everyone,

I feel great that China is handling things so well.

Infact, the western media Globe and Mail of Toronto first day opened up with outrageous reports, lies,
and non-stop bash of China. But all the Chinese commenters made sure the lies were
told and uncovered.

The next day, the Globe and Mail of Toronto, changed their tone to show neutral tone, and using
quotes from Xinhua news agency. HA.HA.HA Great job Xinhua and China to show the World what
is going on, with photos, video, commentary, and great writing.

The Devils of this world, are sometimes so desparate to divide China, they will stoope so low, and
do such dirty tactics. Thankfully China and the people are doing a great job.

Keep up the good work ...da jia jixu  nu li, hao bu hao..., wo ai ni men!

The stunning arrogance of Beijing

So China now thinks it can interfere in the internal affairs of film festivals around the world.

From today's "Age" Newspaper

Beijing pressures film festival to dump documentary
Mary-Anne Toy
July 15, 2009
THE Chinese Government has demanded that the Melbourne International Film Festival dump a documentary about an exiled minority leader whom they label a terrorist and blame for instigating this month's ethnic riots in Xynjyang, which left more than 180 people dead.

The Australian film about millionaire Weeghur businesswoman and grandmother Rebiya Khadir, who was once feted by the Chinese Government as an example of ethnic harmony in China, is scheduled to premiere on August 8.

Festival director Richard Moore said the Chinese consulate in Melbourne phoned him late on Friday after the festival's full program was published in The Age, insisting that the documentary, The 10 Conditions of Love, be withdrawn.

The consular official, Ms Chen, who is believed to be the new Melbourne cultural attache, demanded that Mr Moore justify his decision to include the film. She also castigated him for allowing Ms Khadir to be a guest of the festival. Ms Khadir is due in Melbourne next month to speak at the premiere.

"When I told them that I did not have to justify the film's inclusion, they became increasingly insistent and proceeded to list her (Ms Khadir's) crimes," Mr Moore said.

The film's title refers to the love story between Ms Khadir and her activist husband, Sidik Rowzi. It explores the impact on her 11 children of her push for greater autonomy and religious freedom for China's 10 million mainly Musslym Weeghurs. Three of her children have been jailed.

Ms Khadir ran a trading company in Xynjyang and became one of China's richest women, using her status to champion Weeghur and women's rights. She was arrested in 1999 on her way to a meeting with a US congressional hooman ryghts delegation in Urumkwi, Xynjyang's capital. She was found guilty of "providing secret information to foreigners" because she was carrying local newspapers and had earlier sent domestic news clippings to her exiled husband in Washington.

Baloney, Aussie emu, this is no internal affair

As to you, emu, your comments prove that no dog will ever produce elephant tusks, and no wasp will ever give us honey.

The Chinese consulate did exactly the right thing.

What you call "internal affairs" here is just the opposite -- Rebiya was convicted of espionage on solid grounds, not because of her allegedly "sending newspaper clippings to her separatist husband," and so this is a matter that concerns China for Rebiya was a Chinese convict in a Chinese prison before she was jettisoned to America "on medical grounds."  

You wouldn't produce a documentary about the "romance" between bin Laden and his wife now, would you?

And why not?

Because bin Laden had been a terrorist in Western parlance and was responsible for the killing of Westerners.

So why are you applying double standards here when it comes to terrorism in a non-white nation such as China when it has now become clear that Rebiya was associated with the random killing of 184 people and wounding of more than a thousand -- all premeditated murders with the victims being randomly selected (the most terrifying aspect of the pogrom was its random and unexpected nature)?

Remember that the killing spree against the Hans occurred simultaneously in different parts of the city, echoed in real time by parallel violence against Chinese at the consulate in Amsterdam and elsewhere.  The weapons included truckloads of brick-size stones -- not found on the streets of U r u m q i, as I had been to that city twice in the last seven years and I know that for a fact.  That's evidence of a foreign-instigated riot, not to mention intercepted cell and internet messages pointing to the same culprits.  Many of the perpetrators came from border areas and not necessarily from Urumqi itself.

Isn't it true, therefore, that you are again applying double standards here?

So a terrorist organization with its headquarters established in Washington D.C. on April 15, 2004 that has now been linked to the 7.5.09 riot is tolerable and okay with you, while bin Laden's Al Qaeda is not just because their target victims belong to neither the same nation nor the same ethnic group.  Is that it?

Your quoting this Australian newspaper here is particularly repulsive especially since the film is cloaked in such romantic terms -- the "love story" between a terrorist husband and his wife who also happened to have benefited the most from the policies of the Gaige Kaifang.

That this woman is a pathological liar has now been documented through and through, and for the likes of you -- a farm hand who used to terrorize the outer forums anonymously, a piece of xit really -- to try to lecture China about what constitutes internal affair and what doesn't is hilarious to the extreme.

Rebiya went to Washington D.C. "on medical grounds"accompanied by a special envoy sent by Bush, which now in retrospect was a long-hatched plot by America -- it already had hatched a scheme to use the World U ighur Congress, which was a terrorist organization established in the American capital a year before Rebiya went to the States -- for sabotage purposes against China, and was only awaiting someone like Rebiya to come along to head the group.  Behind Rebiya is her separatist fugitive husband who's controlled by the Anglo government in Washington.

That the Anglos are collectively coordinating the glorification of this terrorist shows that you people are truly at the end of your rope, having failed miserably in all fields of endeavor -- militarily in Iraq and financially in Wall Street, and are supporting a pathological liar + criminal scab like Rebiya only because she is useful in your sinister plans to destabilize China.

This film festival will be part of that gleeful glorification -- when you can win neither in the battlefield nor in global finances, you now resort to below-the-belt tactics of using malcontents and terrorist organizations against the Old Country.

What you are -- emu the veritable piece of xit in these forums -- speaks so loud that no one can hear what you say about "internal affairs."

As in the Rio Tinto spying case, the inclusion of the film in the Aussie event is part and parcel of the continual Western encroachment against China at its worst.

It is definitive proof that bereft of open and legal means of destabilizing China, the West is now heavily engaged in terrorist methodologies which it itself had vehemently renounced on moral grounds after 911

You wouldn't produce a documentary about the "romance" or "love story" between bL and his wife after 911 and have it shown in an Aussie film festival now, would you?

And why not?

Because bL was responsible for the killing of Westerners.
