During World War II the German Nazis killed 6m Jews. They arrested Jews from Poland, Germany, Hungary, Italy, France, the UK Channel Islands + other countries + transported them to Belsen Dachau, Auschwitz, Saxenhausen. They were all murdered. That is Genocide.
As part of the anti-China clamour of today, right wing critics, joined now by some Western liberals, are claiming that China is committing Genocide against the Uyghurs in Xinjiang. Even the UK Chief Rabbi has joined in the chorus of denunciation.
China denies the allegations.
China has had a security problem with Muslim extremists in Xinjiang. The extremists have carried out violent attacks on China in pursuit of its goal of making Xinjiang a separate state. In response, China has built re-education camps (not killing camps) to wean vulnerable Uyghurs away from the ideology of the violent extremists. The Uighur issue is about security not race.
China’s critics are getting desperate. Led by the UK Foreign Minister they make genocide, forced sterilisation + forced labour allegations. So far China has been restrained, but for how much longer?
