Uighurs after 're-education': prison, death or enslavement?

Trove of leaked China documents detail jailing of Xinjiang's Muslim Uighurs

The NY Times has obtained a trove of hundreds of pages of leaked top secret Chinese documents containing details about the millions of Muslim Uighurs in East Turkestan (Xinjiang Province) have been rounded up, jailed, and treated harshly. The documents contain top secret statements by Xi Jinping and other top officials of the Chinese Communist Party (CCP).

The documents say that regions of Xinjiang have been given quotas for the minimum number of Uighurs to be arrested, with the directive to "round up everyone who should be rounded up." Once arrested, full dictatorial powers should be used against them, and they should be punished, even though there was no indication that they committed any crimes. The documents describe how one party official, Wang Yongzhi, was discredited and punished himself because he had objections to the abusive treatment of innocent Uighurs, and didn't round up and arrest enough of them to meet his quota.

The CCP has been conducting violent attacks at members of all non-indigenous religions, including Christianity, Buddhism and Islam. The attacks on Buddhism have been particularly violent and bloody, because of Buddhist presence in Tibet, and on Islam because of Muslim presence in Central Asia.

China's policies towards religions have always been violent, but before Xi's rise to party, the CCP described the terrorist attacks in Xinjiang as the work of a few fanatics. That all changed under Xi, who in essence has declared all Muslims (and, indeed, all Buddhists and Christians) as terrorists.

After a terror attack by Uighur terrorists in July 2014, Xi Jinping called for a “struggle against terrorism, infiltration and separatism” using the “organs of dictatorship,” and showing “absolutely no mercy."

"The psychological impact of extremist religious thought on people must never be underestimated. People who are captured by religious extremism — male or female, old or young — have their consciences destroyed, lose their humanity and murder without blinking an eye."

It's interesting that the leaked documents are revealing that Xi Jinping has found a way to blame the United States for Uighur terrorism in China:

"After the United States pulls troops out of Afghanistan, terrorist organizations positioned on the frontiers of Afghanistan and Pakistan may quickly infiltrate into Central Asia. East Turkestan’s terrorists who have received real-war training in Syria and Afghanistan could at any time launch terrorist attacks in Xinjiang."

Although Xi's comments were addressed to Uighurs, the same policies target Buddhists and Christians as well. In 2013, Xi issued "Document Number 9," which condemned those in the West who criticized China's violent crackdowns on Tibetan Buddhists and Uighur Muslims. Then, in April 2018, Xi adopted the "Sinicization of Religion," which triggered a rampage by China's security thugs, destroying Catholic and Protestant Churches, destroying Buddhist statues and temples, and jailing, beating and torturing anyone who tries to practice his religion.

The CCP has identified what it calls the "five poisons" of society that must be controlled or stamped out. These are Tibetans, Uighur Muslims, democracy activists, Taiwanese, and Falun Gong practitioners. These are the guiding principles of China's self-destruction.

However, in practice there are many more "poisons," according to the CCP, including Christians.

Another "poison" to be treated violently are the ethnic Hui people in Gansu province, in the heart of China. The Hui are not separatist, are not violent, are not terrorists. In fact, they're pure Chinese, except that they're not Han Chinese. But they're Muslims, and that makes them hated enemies of the state, and they're now being treated violently by the CCP, just like the Tibetans and Uighurs.

Uighurs after 're-education': prison, death or enslavement?

One of the mysteries of China's "re-education" program for Uighurs is: What happens to a Uighur after he's been "re-educated"? I've heard analysts on al-Jazeera and the BBC raise this question, but no one seems to have an answer -- or perhaps they don't want utter the obvious answers.

One analyst last week said that there was evidence that the prison population in Xinjiang prisons was increasing substantially. She opined that the Uighurs were being sent to prison after being re-educated.

Does that make sense to you, Dear Reader? It makes no sense to me at all.

The implication is that a bloodthirsty violent leader, Xi Jinping, ordered the state to spend tens of millions of dollars re-educating Uighurs, and then spend more tens of millions of dollars to pay for their room and board in prison. So that possibility doesn't make sense at all.

Another possibility is that the re-educated Uighurs are being killed. That's possible, since the same satellite photos that revealed the re-education centers also revealed adjacent crematoria. This would indicate the same kind of "final solution" that Hitler used to get rid of the Jews. And it's much more likely a scenario than just putting them in prisons.

However, the issue seemed to be solved in July, when Xinjiang Governor Shohrat Zakir announced that after the Uighurs had received their re-education, they were given good jobs with good incomes. (See my article: "31-Jul-19 World View -- China claims Muslim Uighurs released from concentration camps")

Does that make sense to you, Dear Reader? Actually, it does, as I described in my article. A bloodthirsty leader like Xi Jinping would use this work force of hundreds of thousands of Uighurs to do slave labor for China's military. As I described in my July article, that's what Hitler did.

So, millions of Uighurs (and Kazakhs) have been sent to concentration camps ("re-education centers"). Some were sent to prison afterwards, some were killed in the crematoria, and some were sent to work in slave labor camps.

That seems like the most likely set of scenarios to me. And yet, I've never seen or heard any mainstream media sources even mention killing or enslaving Uighurs.

Holocausts in three nations

I continue to be absolutely astonished that, after hearing politicians for decades say "Never again!", referring to the Nazi Holocaust against the Jews, that there are now three Holocausts currently in progress, in three different countries, all targeting Sunni Muslims:

What's perhaps most astonishing is that even the Sunni Muslim nations -- Saudi Arabia, Qatar, United Arab Emirates (UAE), Turkey, Egypt, Indonesia, and so forth -- are not saying anything about three Holocausts, committing genocide and ethnic cleansing of their own brothers.
