    The latest issue of a journal entitled Turkistan al-Muslimah (Muslim Turkistan) was recently published by a jihadi web forum (, March 26). The journal is identified as the work of al-Hizb al-Islami al-Turkistani (Turkistan Islamic Party - TIP). The first issue of the journal was originally published on July 2008 by al-Fajr Institute for Islamic Media, which usually publishes materials on the activities of al-Qaeda affiliated groups in regions such as Afghanistan, North Africa and “East Turkistan” (China’s Xinjiang province). The first issue was republished on jihadi websites in January, with the second issue following in February (, January 26;...

    Mihrigul Tursun, a survivor of China’s concentration camp system, urged the National Basketball Association (NBA) in remarks to Breitbart News on Friday to condemn China’s human rights abuses. Tursun also warned star player LeBron James, one of China’s biggest business partners in the league, to distance himself from the regime “because money cannot do everything.” Tursun was participating in a march Friday organized by the East Turkistan Government in Exile in Washington, DC, the purpose of which was to demand that the administration of President Joe Biden act to protect the Uyghur people from the ongoing genocide they are enduring...

    The East Turkistan Government in Exile returned to the State Department Monday to commemorate the 31st anniversary of a riot in the Chinese territory of Xinjiang, in which 50 Uyghurs and six government policemen died. Prime Minister Salih Hudayar says the Chinese government forced 250 ethnic Uyghur women in Baren Township to abort their babies under the country’s “family planning” policy. The villagers rioted and were massacred. “The situation has gotten a whole lot worse,” Hudayar said Monday. Over the last decade, China has locked up millions of Uyghurs and other Turkic peoples in concentration camps. In January, the U.S....

    People's World ^ | 10/29/2020 | Steve Sweeney
    Jihadist groups are believed to have been present in Azerbaijan since at least February, it was claimed on Oct. 27, with Turkey accused of shipping in militia, including a Uyghur Muslim terror group, the Turkistan Islamic Party (TIP). The Islamist fighters are thought to have been mobilized from their bases in Syria to join Azeri forces in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict, where they are fighting against Armenia. Despite Turkey initially denying the presence of the jihadists, film footage and photographs have since corroborated reports which began circulating in the Syrian press in August. The mobilization of Turkish troops was reported in...

    You can watch the video at the link in the header or the one I put below. Note this teenager is picked up and carried to the vehicle while two small children (hers?) scream and cry and what may be her mother arguing bravely on her behalf. Where is the left when children are REALLY being brutally separated from their mothers? The following text is shown small in the image: NOT JUST #HONGKONG Protests are breaking out ALL OVER #Kazakhstan to oppose #ChineseExpansion. #China‘s imprisoning #Kazakhs in its #ConcentrationCamps (alongside #Uyghurs, et al.) in #EastTurkistan (“#Xinjiang”) & Chinese workers are...

One quick note: Abu Yahya is no longer wearing his pinky ring, the one that he’s been wearing since late 2005 – this is the first video that I havent seen it (although it may just be at the shop getting cleaned) – here’s a screen cap:" SNIPPET: "Wow, could I be any more right...

    Without a doubt the biggest story in the jihadi web this past week is China, in response to the perceived oppression of the Uighur Muslims of Xinjiang, AKA East Turkistan. Examples of postings include • a history of Muslims in China • an article on "The Strategic Importance of Xinjiang for Eurasian Energy Infrastructure" (complete with a translation into Arabic of the source English-language article, and a map of pipelines in Central Asia) • a chapter from a book by Mohammed Qutb about Communism • and last, but certainly not least, a statement from Commander Sayfullah of the Uighur 'Turkistan...

    The BBC ^ | December 15, 2003 | Tim Luard
    China is stepping up its efforts to convince the outside world that there is a direct link between the US-led war on terror and its own fight against Muslim separatists. But many remain unconvinced by Beijing's latest claims against those accused of carrying out a series of bombings and assassinations in its biggest and most politically restive region. In the past, China revealed as little as possible about the sensitive issue of separatist violence in the huge and remote western region of Xinjiang. Apart from anything else, it was highly embarrassed by the claims of local Muslim Uighurs that they...

    US places separatist group on terrorist list Beijing _ The US has put a group that wants independence for China's Muslim Xinjiang region on a list of terrorist organisations, a senior US diplomat said. The announcement by US Deputy Secretary of State Richard Armitage on Monday came a day after China released rules on missile exports, a step long sought by Washington. The US government put the East Turkistan Islamic Movement on its terrorist list several days ago after ``careful study,'' Mr Armitage said. East Turkistan is another name for Xinjiang. The group ``committed acts of violence against unarmed civilians...

    Amnesty International recently issued an extensive report on the policies of the Chinese government towards the Uighur minority in Xinjiang Uighur Autonomous Region (XUAR).1 The 24-page document details the various legislative provisions recently introduced into Chinese law with a view to curbing “terrorist, separatist and illegal religious activities.” Loosely translated, China is attempting to create domestic legal sanctions for the post-September 11th crackdown on Muslims and Islam in XUAR. By no means is a Chinese crackdown on organized religion unique; China has a long-standing antagonism towards religion, as evidenced by the highly publicized crack down on the Falun Gong sect...
