“Recently I did a zoom interview with the China Daily. This is a short summary of the interview.
My position is that China has been involved in a struggle with Islamic extremists who want independence from China.
China challenged the extremists – some of whom were Uyghurs.
But this is not a war about race.
This is not the Han majority v the Uighur minority.
This is Islamic extremism v China for control of Xinjiang Province.
Many many more Uighur people live peacefully and contentedly in Xinjiang
And these Uighur people do not support the Islamic extremists.
Islamic countries support China – not the extremists – because the Islamic countries face the same challenge from extremists in their own countries”
