If the situation, in Xinjiang Province of the People’s Republic of China, is as reports from the Ummah have lead me to believe, then it is perfectly clear what the position of the politically Muslim should be. The Quran clearly lays out what the response should be:
As interpreted by Dr Mustafa Khattab of “The Clear Quran”:
If you prefer the Sahih International of “The Noble Quran”:
The lives and beliefs of Muslims in China and Myanmar (with the oppressed Rohingya) matter just as much as those in Libya, Brazil, Germany, or the United States.
“But PV! They are responding to acts of terror!”
Is not persecution [of Islam] far worse than killing? East Turkestan is entitled to sovereignty on this fact alone. Where there is smoke there is fire! Ethnic conflict between the Uighur (also transliterated as Uyghur) and Chinese civilization (be it Da Tang or now) has a long history that goes back to the time of the Prophet Muhammad (SAWS)!
The full verses read:
With their respective two interpretations:
Have we spent so much time being harassed by misguided Christians–who do not realize our shared interests–over these verses that we have forgotten from where they come? They come from final scripture that is meant to clear all doubt!
We should not do what we KNOW is wrong. I speak to the those Muslims who, in accordance with the practice of democratic centralism, ally with the unbelievers speak what they know are lies! If you are not convinced, then you are not convinced. HOWEVER, if you willfully lie then the Quran has made it perfectly clear:
A man can be two things at once. I am both a proud and outspoken Muslim–believer in the ONE GOD (SWT) who revealed the Quran to the Prophet Muhammad (SAWS) to clarify that which came before–and Marxist–guided by Mao Zedong Thought. I also take a strong interest in Chinese history. However, I am FIRST and FOREMOST a Muslim, and my primary obligation is to GOD (SWT), then the Ummah, and finally to the Marxist movement.
And on! And on! And on! This is the book for which there can be NO doubt! If only we knew what good it would do us if we truly did strive to submit to GOD (SWT) like we do to the Leftist Zeitgeist.

Before y’all harangue me, know that the United States once supported the fighters of the Arab-Afghan War and Pakistan against the idolaters of India. Even a clock with no hands cannot be more than 11 hours and 59 minutes off!
