The attacks against China are not only of an economic or military nature. Religions are some of the mightiest weapons of the China's foes. Be it radical Buddhism, evangelical Protestant Christianity, or, as now, radical Islam.
China has to defend itself, by all means. Extremist Uyghurs are marching. Many of them are brutal, and extremely dangerous. They have already murdered thousands of innocent people, in various countries. Their goal is to break the integrity of China and its great internationalist projects. They are determined, well-funded, and thoroughly selfish. Their desire for 'independence' has been ignited and financed by foreign powers.
The plan of the extremist Uyghurs is simple: to perfect terrorist and extremist tactics, and combat skills abroad, then return to China and begin spreading the nightmare at home.
The West is readily "helping" to fuel their deadly march. China's Ecological Civilization, the end of poverty in the most populous country on earth, and BRI, are seen as a danger to Western supremacy, at least in places such as Washington, London and Brussels.
China has all the right to defend itself. It has a full obligation to do so.
It is the duty of thinkers from all over the world to tell the truth. If they stay silent, or if they sell their dignity for money and privileges, as so many in the West are doing right now, they will be condemned by future generations.
