    Epoch Times ^ | 07/20/2021 | Clyde Prestowitz
    At the United Nations General Assembly in March of this year, Chinese Ambassador Dai Bing emphasized to the General Assembly that: “If the U.S. truly cared about human rights, they should address the deep-seated problems of racial discrimination, social injustice, and police brutality, on their own soil.”This was only one of many recent statements by the Chinese regime and Chinese Communist Party (CCP) officials condemning the United States as a racist country ruled by political leaders who cater to the wealthy one percent of the population that owns eighty percent of the nation’s assets while ignoring the needs of the...

White responded like a champion:Free the Uyghurs: Two million ethnic minorities in East Turkestan China in concentration camps. Something we gotta talk about. You know I'm always going to talk about the real things.

    Irritated by foreign criticism of some of his policies, President Xi Jinping vowed that "The Chinese people will absolutely not allow any foreign force to bully, oppress or enslave us and anyone who attempts to do so will face broken heads and bloodshed in front of the iron Great Wall of the 1.4 billion Chinese people." The examples of "bullying" that so incensed Xi include objections to China's treatment of the Uyghurs and its culpability for the coronavirus pandemic that has resulted in nearly four million deaths around the globe. The Uyghurs are an ethnic minority whose members are being...

    A camera system that uses AI and facial recognition intended to reveal states of emotion has been tested on Uyghurs in Xinjiang, the BBC has been told. A software engineer claimed to have installed such systems in police stations in the province. A human rights advocate who was shown the evidence described it as shocking. The Chinese embassy in London has not responded directly to the claims but says political and social rights in all ethnic groups are guaranteed. Xinjiang is home to 12 million ethnic minority Uyghurs, most of whom are Muslim. Citizens in the province are under daily...

    <p>URUMQI, China—The Chinese regime has highlighted an unlikely series of videos this year in which Uyghur men and women deny U.S. charges that Beijing is committing human rights violations against their ethnic group. In fact, a text obtained by the AP shows that the videos are part of a CCP campaign that raises questions about the willingness of those filmed.</p>

    A new report from the Australian Strategic Policy Institute reveals chilling evidence of the Chinese Communist Party’s genocide of Uighur Muslims and other minorities in Xinjiang, China. One key — and chilling — finding is that between 2019-2020, Uighur and other minority-concentrated areas saw birth rates plummet 50 percent or more within those two years.As the report points out, “The Chinese Communist Party has a long history of state-directed demographic engineering” in the name of “family planning.” For example, between 1979 and 2015, the CCP imposed a “One-Child” policy on the Chinese population, limiting Chinese couples to a single child....

    British researchers say the world’s production of solar panels is being fueled by forced labor from Uyghur Muslims in the Chinese province of Xinjiang. An investigation by Sheffield Hallam University says some 45 percent of the world’s supply of a key component in the panels—polysilicon—comes from Xinjiang and is obtained through a vast system of coercion involving the Uyghur ethnic minority. In Broad Daylight, the report from the university’s Helena Kennedy Center for International Justice, says the world’s four biggest panel manufacturers use polysilicon tainted by forced labor, and urges producers to source the substance from elsewhere. It cited an...

    ATLANTA, GA—Spokespeople for Major League Baseball announced today that the All-Star Game this summer will be moved from Atlanta, due to its egregious voting laws, to a Uyghur prison camp yard, where there aren't any bad voting laws at all. The game will be held in the spacious prison yard, which features a tall barbed-wire fence and a modest outfield. The venue features lots of free labor, so every role from the ball boys to the concession vendors won't cost the league a dime. In fact, the workers are already happily chalking the baselines and tending the grass, since if...

    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....

    Just one month ago Joe Biden spread direct Chinese Communist Party propaganda when he was asked about Xi Jinping’s genocide of the Uyghurs during the CNN town hall. One million Muslims (the majority of them Uyghurs) have been held in secretive detention camps without any legal process since 2014. It has been described as a genocide, the likes of which have not been seen since WWII. Biden said the Uyghur genocide is just “a Chinese cultural norm.” That was just last month. Then today Joe Biden suggested Trump did not speak out on the Uyghur genocide or Hong Kong or...

    In their drive for world dominance, the Chinese Communists have been pushing their “authoritarian methods” on the world as a substitute for the supposed “failed leadership” of the United States. The ChiComs have invested enormous resources in the numerous foreign language versions of their state-run media (e.g., China Daily, XinhuaNet, and People’s Daily) to spread agit-prop around the world attempting to convince other countries of their beneficence and altruism. They also exploit “trusted agents” in Western media to routinely parrot that same propaganda. However, the ChiComs have been caught out in committing genocide against Uyghur Muslims in Western China/Eastern Turkistan....

    In the first independent, non-governmental legal examination of China’s human rights offenses against the Uyghur population, the think tank Newlines Institute for Strategy and Policy found that the Chinese government is responsible for “committing genocide against the Uyghurs in breach of the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide.” The 1948 Genocide Convention “is an instrument of international law that codified for the first time the crime of genocide,” according to the United Nations’ website. The convention was the “first human rights treaty” that the General Assembly of the United Nations adopted. Its purpose was...

    Leaked emails prove that, contrary to United Nations denials, UN human-rights officials did in fact give the names of Chinese dissidents to the communist regime in Beijing before those activists were set to testify in Geneva against the Communist Chinese Party’s abuses. In fact, it appears from the leaked documents that the practice of handing over names of Chinese dissidents to the dictatorship was viewed as a “usual practice” by all involved. The whistleblower told The Epoch Times that it continues to this day, despite UN denials. Chinese communist authorities used the names received from the UN to prevent the...

    Former California Sen. Barbara Boxer raised eyebrows this week after first registering as a foreign agent with the Chinese surveillance company Hikvision, then later "deregistering" Tuesday.Hikvision was barred by the Commerce Department in 2019 over its involvement in the Chinese government’s suppression of the Uyghurs -- an ethnic minority population in the Xinjiang province located in northwest China.Boxer, who registered with the Justice Department under the Foreign Agents Registration Act Friday, was expected to serve as a "Strategic consultant," on behalf of the surveillance company for Mercury Public Affairs, a prominent lobbying firm where Boxer was recently named co-chair, the...

    At least half of London’s boroughs have bought and deployed China-made surveillance systems linked to the abuse of Uyghurs, according to data exclusively given to the Thomson Reuters Foundation, raising alarm among privacy advocates and lawmakers. Freedom of information requests filed in late 2020 with all 32 London councils and the next 20 largest UK city councils found about two-thirds owned technology made by two Chinese companies accused of links to the repression of Uyghurs. At least 28 councils owned technology made by Hikvision, the world’s largest purveyor of video surveillance systems and vendor to Xinjiang police agencies, revealed data...

    The administration is now claiming "technical difficulties" in supporting President Trump's designation against the Chinese Communist Party.The Uyghurs in China had a friend in President Trump and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. They pressured Beijing over the concentration camps that currently hold over a million Muslim and Christian minorities and publicly condemned the Chinese Communist Party for “genocide.” It initially appeared the Biden administration would continue this stance, but new reports indicate they’re looking for a way out of the designation.They’re citing “technical flaws” as a way to withdraw the genocide designation.

    WASHINGTON — The State Department declared on Tuesday that the Chinese government is committing genocide and crimes against humanity through its wide-scale repression of Uighurs and other mostly Muslim ethnic minorities in its northwestern region of Xinjiang, including in its use of internment camps and forced sterilization, American officials said. The move is expected to be the Trump administration’s final action on China, made on its last full day, and is the culmination of a yearslong debate over how to punish what many consider Beijing’s worst human rights abuses in decades. Relations between the countries have deteriorated over the past...

Iran shares nearly 760 kilometers (470 miles) of its border with Azerbaijan and about 35 kilometers (22 miles) with Armenia, with traditionally good relations with both neighbors, though public opinion in the predominantly Shiite Iran mainly supports Azerbaijan.
