While nowhere in the article do they dare mention that these Uyghur (also, Uighur) terrorists are Muslim–and they are, this is a great tutorial from the Chinese on how to treat the Islamic terrorists on your plane. Just desserts, indeed. After all, the 72 revirginized uglies are waiting. Notice how aside from refusing to note that these are Islamic terrorists, the Daily Mail tries to make excuses for their hijacking, as if this is justified. Oh, and it wasn’t a terrorist attack. The explosives were just an accessory for the “in-flight brawl.”
Two men who allegedly tried to hijack a plane in China were beaten to death by passengers and crew, state media said today. The men were part of a six-strong gang, aged 20 to 36, who attempted to hijack a Tianjin Airlines flight bound for Urumqi last Friday.
Minutes after the flight carrying 101 people took off from Hetian, southwest Xinjiang, three men in the front and three in the back stood up and announced their plans to terrified passengers, according to reports. The group, all from the city of Kashgar in the west of Xinjiang, then broke a pair of aluminum crutches and used the pieces to attack passengers while trying to break into the cockpit, a regional government spokesman said.
They were tackled by police and passengers who tied them up with belts before the plane returned to the airport safely just 22 minutes later. Several passengers and crew members were injured in the tussle. The alleged hijackers were taken to hospital where two of them later died, the state-run Global Times reported. The newspaper said two others were hospitalised after mutilating themselves, but gave no others details.
The regional government spokesman added the men had smuggled suspected explosives on board. These were still being tested by police today.
Xinjiang is home to a large population of minority Uighurs (pronounced WEE’-gurs), but is ruled by China’s ethnic majority Hans. There have been clashes between authorities and Uighurs resentful of government controls over their religion and culture. . . . Dilxat Raxit, spokesman for the German-based World Uyghur Congress which campaigns for Uighurs’ rights, said that it wasn’t a hijacking attempt but an in-flight brawl over a seat dispute.
Hmmm . . . if this was a Jewish or Christian group trying to smuggle explosives on board and then engaging in an “in-flight brawl,” do you think the Daily Mail would go out of its way not to mention the religion?
Think again. And don’t forget that a Clinton-appointed judge >allowed Uighur terrorists just like this to live on the American mainland, fresh from Gitmo.
