Did China get its September 11?


an-suv-crashed-into-tiananmen-square-and-they-think-it-might-have-been-a-suicide-attack

The body count is not comparable in any way, but the Tiananmen Square car bombing resembles September 11 in its daring, targeting the political seat of power, and the way that it caught a powerful security establishment unprepared.

China has predictably fallen into censorship mode, but it’s obvious that its leaders are being forced to come to terms with the fact that they may be facing a terrorist campaign similar to the one experienced in Europe, America, Israel and other parts of the world where Muslim minorities backed by foreign interests cause violent mischief.

The People’s Republic of China had believed that Muslim violence would be largely confined to outer areas with large Muslim populations, but an attack in Beijing is a warning that their policy of restraint has failed. China, like most countries, has tried to deal with Muslim terrorism as a local problem, while allying with Muslim countries internationally.

That’s the same mistake that America and Europe have made.

Until all the countries that are the victims of Muslim terrorism begin standing together, they have no hope of defeating it.

A day after a sport utility vehicle mowed down dozens of pedestrians near Tiananmen Square and exploded at the foot of the nation’s most hallowed monument, killing five people, the authorities appeared to be focusing on suspects from Xinjiang, the region in China’s far west that has been the scene of increasingly violent resistance to Beijing’s hard-line policies.

Officials increased security at pivotal intersections, subway stations and tourist sites across the capital, but they remained conspicuously silent about an episode that many Chinese believe was a deliberate attack on the political and symbolic heart of the nation.

The attack was no less unnerving given that it took place before a Nov. 9 meeting of party leaders at the Great Hall of the People, which is close to where the car exploded. Just hours beforehand, President Xi Jinping and other members of the Politburo Standing Committee attended the opening session of the National Women’s Congress in the same building.

By Tuesday morning, there was no evidence of the mayhem caused by the vehicle, which struck and killed two people and wounded 38 as it hurtled more than 400 yards along a sidewalk thronged with tourists. Some witnesses said the driver warned pedestrians by honking as the car sped forward. Reuters quoted a witness who said the vehicle was trailing a white banner with black letters.

That would likely be what is known popularly as the Al Qaeda flag. The white flag is known as the “state flag” of the Caliphate. It’s an interesting choice considering that Jihadis usually attack using the black “war flag”.

But maybe the Jihadis chose to use the state flag in an attack on the seat of China’s power to make a point about their goal of replacing the Communist Party with the Islamic law of the Caliphate.

    The hypocrites at NBC nightly news reported the attack on Tienanmen square by saying that the attackers come from a part of China where there are problems with the Chinese authorities and no mention of Islam and Muslims and no mention of terrorism either
    Totally despicable

      Reality does not fit their narrative that Islam is the religion of peace.

    • tagalog

      They ought to be thinking about the Uighurs too.

      • N. Wasse

        Oh yes and that despicable woman Rebiya Kadeer who lives the good life in Washington by supporting the terrorist and Arab wannabes the Uighurs

    “East Turkistan” is just an eastern border among Islam’s “bloody borders”. Islam just doesn’t accept the notion of living as a minority under the rule of infidels as legitimate. So the drive is to rectify that situation, according to circumstance – by pushing for “accommodation”, separate neighborhoods where outsiders fear to tread, formal autonomous territory, or independence. Violence may be, and usually is, used in pursuit of these new arrangements.

    The West is too squeamish to do what’s necessary. Perhaps it remains for the Buddhists of Burma and the Chinese to do what we won’t: push Islam back over those borders.

      The most effective means of dealing w/islam0nazis, is the same tactics they use on the najjis kaffir — in all their various and sundry islam0fascist wallows.

  • Edgar Davidson

    The report I saw about this on BBC news last night actually told viewers that this was likely to be related to those protesting the imprisonment of pro-democracy political activists. If your theory is correct, then the BBC could not be farther from the truth, but of course it would be consistent with their policy of covering up Islamic terrorism.

    • tagalog

      Yeah, those pro-democracy terrorists, they’ve been a real thorn in the side of the Red Chinese.

      All those subversives in the lao gai.

  • EVILHASWONAGAIN

    Kill every muslim they come across…..

  • tagalog

    Muslims are just as willing to murder atheists, characterizing them as infidels, as they are to murder anyone else. Chinese Communism is just as atheistic as any other brand of communism.

  • kate5778b

    I remember the Uighur Muslims kicking off in 2009 and the Han Chinese seen as the perpetrators of violence, the sympathy was only for the Uighurs and not the Han Chinese who had the most casualties, who are er…..Chinese and trying to live a Chinese life and and keep peace in…..China. I even remember in National Geographic article at that time showing the bad Han Chinese building on land Uighurs considered theirs………….hmmm, now what does that sound like? They’re all tarred with the same brush.

      NatGeo has been whitewashing islam0nazism for decades. Their meme was and is that islam had nothing to do w/the terrorism Israel has experienced for 65 years.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        Israel is a victim of a very perpetual and very strategic jihad (holy war) to ultimately make Islam supreme, as opposed to it just being terrorism perpetrated in response to harsh Israeli policies. As a matter of fact, that very strategic jihad being waged against the infidel state of Israel, exactly like all the many other jihads around the world, manifests through both violent and non-violent jihad, but overall astronomically far more via non-violent jihad relative to violent jihad, as, indeed, the massive amounts of taqiyya demonizing Israel and the Jews worldwide is really stealth and deceptive non-violent jihad intended to isolate and weaken Israel. As a matter of fact, the so-called peace process is really stealth and deceptive non-violent jihad intended to weaken Israel, as Muslims can never ever make peace with infidels. Indeed, the non-violent aspects of that jihad relative to the violent aspects of that jihad are far more detrimental to the survival of Israel. Nevertheless, as long as people continue to conflate and confuse jihad (holy war) as somehow being just terrorism in response to harsh Israeli policies or terrorism perpetrated by Islamic extremists, people will always continue to fail to understand what is really happening over there in Israel.

          > “as Muslims can never ever make peace with infidels”

          Correction amigo, Muslims cannot make *permanent* peace. They may make temporary truces, called “hudna” for up to ten years.

          One problem is that the West does not understand the concepts or limitation of hudna. Therefore they are suckered into believing that Islamists can be “peace partners” – when this is prohibited by Islam except for short time periods.

          Otherwise, your post was spot in. jihad is predominantly non-violent undermining of non-Muslim society, with a bit of violence on top to keep everyone’s head down as the political transformation is made.

          • ObamaYoMoma

            Peace is a permanent solution; a Hudna, on the other hand, is just a temporary truce for a maximum of 10 years. It is not peace.

        Gosh, that long? I stopped buying it because of their anti-Israel stance too, pity because their nature /exploration articles are very good.

  • Jakareh

    Whatever else happens, this will end with Uyghur Muslim “refugees”, more accurately called settler-jihadists, coming to America and Europe and not to any of 57 Muslim countries throughout the world.

      As long as they live in lieberal communities I almost don’t mind. Let them live in Beverly Hills, let them live in Long Island. Let the islam0nazis live among their admirers.

      • Jakareh

        They go where rents are cheap and welfare is generous, so not a single one will go to Beverly Hills or the Hamptons. Instead, they go to places like St. Paul, Minnesota; Columbus, Ohio; and Lewiston, Maine, and regular Americans pay the price.

      You have to kind of laugh at the muslims who pizz off the chicoms, they aren’t afraid to killem all and let allah sortem out.

    How many fifth columnists does the Jihad have in China?

    They have a lot in our country.

  • TheOrdinaryMan

    If the Jihadists wage a concerted campaign to subjugate China, they’ll find they’ve bitten off more than they can chew. The Chinese don’t care about notions of political correctness; their pushback will be that much harder…and they’ll just dump the dead Jihadists in the Yangtze river…where they’ll float…forever.

  • Jason

    Regardless of who did it, China does not deal lightly with terrorists. They wont be getting halal meals in jail, that’s for damn sure. Sad though if it was a pro democratic group.

  • ObamaYoMoma

    China has predictably fallen into censorship mode, but it’s obvious that its leaders are being forced to come to terms with the fact that they may be facing a terrorist campaign similar to the one experienced in Europe, America, Israel and other parts of the world where Muslim minorities backed by foreign interests cause violent mischief.

    That’s about as idiotic an analogy as it gets. Muslims aren’t perpetrating terrorism in Europe, America, Israel, and now also China in response to provocations, or imperialism, or interventions, or because of a tiny minority of extremists, or to make mischief. Instead, Muslims are waging jihad (holy war) around the world to eventually subjugate into Islamic totalitarianism all religions and all infidels via the imposition of Sharia (Islamic totalitarian law) to ultimately make Islam supreme. This is a very strategic war as opposed to just terrorism and this war manifests both violently and non-violently, but overall astronomically far more non-violently relative to violently. As a matter of fact, the OIC’s worldwide campaign to outlaw speaking the truth about Islam because according to them it’s Islamophobia is an example of non-violent stealth and deceptive jihad, while this China attack, on the other hand, is an example of violent jihad. Both violent and non-violent tactics are part of the same very strategic jihad (holy war) intended to ultimately make Islam supreme.

    China, like most countries, has tried to deal with Muslim terrorism as a local problem, while allying with Muslim countries internationally.
    That’s the same mistake that America and Europe have made.

    There is only one solution and it doesn’t involve massively growing the size, scope, and power of the federal government as GWB, like a Dhimmicrat on steroids, did in response to 9/11, and that is banning and reversing mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage. As a matter of fact, mass Muslim immigration is really stealth and deceptive non-violent jihad for the strategic purpose of demographic conquest, as Muslims never ever migrate to infidel lands to assimilate and integrate, but instead to one day subjugate and dominate.

    As a matter of fact, in just 23 years the country of France will become a Muslim majority country, and when that happens the new Muslim majority will inevitably impose Sharia, which is Islamic totalitarian law, and France will cease being a democracy and morph into another Islamic totalitarian hellhole at that time.

    Indeed, jihad, is a very strategic war to ultimately make Islam supreme as opposed to willy-nilly terrorism perpetrated by a few extremists, and manifests both violently and non-violently, but like in the Cold War overall astronomically far more non-violently relative to violently. Finally, with zero Muslims living within, violent and non-violent jihad will be impossible and non-existent.

    Until all the countries that are the victims of Muslim terrorism begin standing together, they have no hope of defeating it.

    It’s not terrorism. Instead, it’s a very strategic jihad (holy war) to ultimately make Islam supreme, as the sole fundamental purpose of Islam is the subjugation of all religions and all infidels into Islamic totalitarianism through both violent and non-violent jihad and the eventual imposition of Sharia (Islamic totalitarian law) in order to make Islam supreme. Therefore, all Muslims as long as Islam continues to exist are our eternal mortal enemies.

    Thus, all infidel countries, including the infidel state of Israel, should all stand together to simultaneously ban and reverse mass Muslim immigration with all of its excess baggage, to deprive the forces of Islam valuable resources through the confiscation of the Mid-East oilfields, to eradicate the ruling Mullah regime of Iran and their nuclear weapons program, to destroy the Pakistani nuclear weapons arsenal and nuclear weapons program, and finally to render the Islamic world into abject poverty and then totally isolate it until such time as Islam as a force becomes discredited.

      I’d think terrorism would at least qualify as a tactic used in jihad.

      • ObamaYoMoma

        I’d think terrorism would at least qualify as a tactic used in jihad.

        Apparently, you don’t have an understanding of what terrorism actually is and thus you misconstrue and conflate it with being a tactic. First of all, the notion that terrorism is just a so-called tactic is very wrong and very false, as terrorism must always also have a political cause behind it. In fact, infidels that perpetrate terrorism are political extremists, like the Unabomber, Bernadine Dohrn and Bill Ayers. Meanwhile, jihadists, on the other hand, are always and only mainstream orthodox Muslims as opposed to extremists waging jihad, because waging jihad is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all mainstream orthodox Muslim in one form or another. Not to mention that terrorism is always and only violent, while jihad, in stark contrast, manifests both violently and non-violently, but overall astronomically far more non-violently relative to violently.

        As long as you continue to conflate and confuse what is actually war, which manifest both violently and non-violently, as somehow being terrorism, which manifest only violently, per your mass media indoctrination, you will never ever be able to fully understand the nuances of the threat that Islam presents. Muslims aren’t political extremists perpetrating terrorism for various political reasons, because that would be blasphemous and blasphemy in Islam is a capital offense. Instead, Muslims are waging holy war (jihad) in the cause of Allah, because waging jihad is a fundamental holy obligation incumbent upon all Muslims in one form or another. Political extremist infidels perpetrate terrorism for all kinds of various political reasons. Meanwhile, mainstream orthodox Muslims, on the other hand, wage jihad (holy war) always and only in the cause of Allah, which manifest both violently and non-violently, but overall astronomically far more non-violently relative to violently.

        Terrorism is extreme violence perpetrated by political extremists usually against innocents for various political causes. Jihad, on the other hand, is a very strategic war in the cause of Allah to ultimately make Islam supreme and manifests like all wars both violently and non-violently. Now, like terrorists, violent jihadists like to target innocents, but that’s because violent jihad primarily manifests via total war tactics.

        I guess for you, Muslims would have to dress up in military uniforms and wage war only against militaries like the West for it not to be construed as terrorism, even though Muslims are products of a completely foreign and alien civilization apart from our Christian-Judeo civilization. Man…it’s exceedingly hard, if not impossible, for you to step outside the box.

        Indeed, I know a few years ago someone wrote something to the effect that we are not at war with terrorism because terrorism is a tactic, and that we are at war with Islam instead. Whoever wrote that was only partially correct, we are at war with Islam because Islam is at war with all religions and all infidels, but, on the other hand, terrorism is not just a tactic. Apparently, whoever wrote that like you didn’t understand what terrorism actually is.
