“Xinjiang was know as ‘Western Region’ in history. It has been a component part of our unified and multi-nationality country for more than 2000 years. From 60 BC, when the Han dynasty instituted the Military Viceroy’s Office in the Western Region, Xinjiang was under the direct jurisdiction of the government of the Western Han Dynasty.” So we learned from, Xinjiang Information, a delightful little instruction-set from Xinjiang Learning Press. Well obviously, these guys haven’t read it yet, or else they would not release such wrong-headed videos as the one issued November 7 via the al-Fajr Information Center. Evidently shooting from the same studios that brought the world such terrorist hits as the as-Sahab and Labik videos from Afghanistan, this group seeks to incite Jihad in Xinjiang Province, or “Eastern Turkestan” as it is called in the video. Although the scope of SCO has expanded since it was founded in 2001 by China, Russia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, combating the “three evil forces” of terrorism, separatism and extremism was its original raison d’etre. It seems everyone from GM to jihad wants a piece of China.
