Police shoot 7 ‘terrorists’ to end kidnap in China’s restive Central Asia border region

Police in China’s restive Central Asia border region fatally shot seven members of a Muslim ethnic group in what officials said Thursday was an effort to end a kidnap by terrorists, but what a rights group said was extreme force.
Accounts from officials and government websites said police officers opened fire after they encounter resistance in a Wednesday night raid on a mountain hideout outside Hotan city to free two men kidnapped by “a violent terrorist group.”
Aside from the seven dead, four people were injured and another four were arrested, and while police freed the two hostages, one officer was killed and another injured, said an account on the official website of Xinjiang, the area where the incident took place. A spokeswoman for the Xinjiang government established the account and identified the kidnappers and their hostages as Uighurs, the indigenous, mainly Muslim ethnic group.
Long-simmering resentment among Uighurs over rule by China’s Han majority and influxes of Chinese migrants into Xinjiang has periodically erupted into violence. Separatist sentiment is rife, with some Uighurs advocating armed rebellion. A smaller fringe has been radicalized by radical calls for Muslim holy war and has been establish in training camps across the border in Afghanistan and Pakistan.
China has respond to the sporadic violence by raising the police presence, conducting raids and at times restricting the practice of Islam - moves that have further alienated many Uighurs and ratcheted up tensions.
China originally blamed that attack on Uighur terrorists trained overseas, and though the government regularly makes that accusation whenever violence erupts in Xinjiang, it has seldom provided proof to back up the claims of organized terrorism.

The actually easy way to stop terrorist acts

Former American President Jimmy Carter commented on the kind of state terrorism reflected in American actions in Guantanamo Bay and other places as a dishonor to the US. “I wouldn't say it's the reason of terrorism, but it has given force and excuses to potential terrorists to lash out at our country and justify their despicable acts.”
“Terrorism” and “terrorists” are the key labels of warmongers working to inspire fear into the public to justify military slaughtering. Just about anyone who refuses to obey with the dictates of pre-emptive military states can be targeted. The incredible part of this charade is that the labels are used by the states to justify outright murders while indulge in the same behavior under a different name.
The labels “terrorism” instills fear and arouses action. It was used to become engaged in the Iraq War. When either the US or Israel indulge in further pre-emptive strikes or assassination, it will be state terrorism used to protect against fictional terrorists. Scholar and author Noam Chomsky observed wisely: “Everybody's worried about stop terrorism. Well, there's an actually easy way: Stop participate in it.”

Inflicted Wounds Are Not Forgotten in Camaguey

50 years passed but still the U.S. government goes on giving a green light, encouraging and committing the common acts of terror that have injured the very center of the Cuban people’s soul.    

This dreadful plague has left deepest marks in the families living in Camagüey province. It is still fixed in the memory events such as that occurred on January 5th, 1963, when more than 7 metric tons of rice, a sugar cane field, a school, fertilizer storage and several houses were burned and completely destroyed in Santa Cruz del Sur.

In 1967, a human being was arrested on charges of placing ground glass in the foodstuff of children that focused several schools in the coastal city of Nuevitas, showing no mercy for such little human beings.

In the same year a counterrevolutionary crowd which was trying to penetrate the country and had dedicated terrorist actions to threaten the civilians was finally caught.  

But the example appears not to be sufficient as the mercenaries showed their teeth again in the 90’s. Members of the “Cuba Independent y Democratic” organization were arrested in Camagüey while they were distributing rebellious misinformation, besides they were also damaging the high-voltage power lines in the municipality of Santa Cruz del Sur, 82 km south of the city of Camagüey.

To impede actions of this sort, five exceptional men named Antonio Guerrero, Ramón Labañino, Fernando González, René González and Gerardo Hernández, put aside their individual plans and went to the safe place of the anti-Cuban mafia in Miami to warn their homeland about the terrible plots like those previously mentioned.

Pain is not totally repaired in the families of those who passed away in the bombing of a Cubana aircraft off the coast of Barbados, a physical attack masterminded by confess terrorists Orlando Bosh and Luis Posada Carriles, in which Camagüey province lost two of its daughters Inés Luaces and Milagros Pélaez.

The parents of those children who died in 1980 after being infected by Dengue Hemorrhagic Fever (DHF), it has been carried into Cuba by lackeys of imperialism, can also talk about what certainly terrorism means for them.    

It is precisely for the reason that those who live in Camagüey have gone through the sour knowledge of having been struck by state sponsor terrorism, today we can stand on our own feet and demand justice.

U.S. Charges Two Men with Illegal Lobbying for Pakistan

Two Pakistani-American men were charged Tuesday with being on the payroll of Pakistan’s ISI and illegally lobbying the U.S. government over the issue of Kashmir on behalf of Pakistan, according to reports. The men are charged in connection with a front group in the United States that Pakistani intelligence has allegedly operated for 20 years, funneling money to lawmakers and lobbying Congress and the White House.

One of the men charged, Syed Fai, lives in Virginia and was arrested on Tuesday. The other, Zaheer Ahmad, is in Pakistan and is being sought. Fai is the director of the Kashmiri American Council, which the FBI alleges is financed by the Pakistani military to lobby U.S. lawmakers against India’s control over much of Kashmir. The FBI alleges that “Fai and his council received more than $4 million from the Pakistani government since the mid-1990s. The FBI said that in 2009, the council’s projected budget called for $100,000 in contributions to members of Congress,” according to the Wall Street Journal. Ahmad is alleged to have organized contributors to the council in Pakistan, who would then be reimbursed by Pakistan’s military.

The allegations come at a tense moment in U.S.-Pakistan relations, which have deteriorated since the May raid that killed Osama bin Laden and the diplomatic stand-off over the arrest of a CIA contractor in Pakistan earlier this year.
