Snakes on a Plane: Chinese Passengers Give a Tutorial on How to Treat Islamic Terrorists

By Debbie Schlussel

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.

‘resentful of Government controls over their culture’… (euphemism)

Er, uh, what aspects of their ‘culture’? Honor killings? Forced marriages?

good the chinese have thier problems with muslims to

Just as a reminder, we are talking about the same jihadi group whose members Obama sent to island paradises like Bermuda and Palau, as well as to other places, since the US didn’t want to send them back to China.

As far as taking down the Uyghur jihadis, the Chinese were more fortunate than the passengers of Flight 91, but just as heroic – they took them down. One more thing that China does – just like Israel used to fill up Judea, Samaria and Gaza w/ Jewish settlers, China, recognizing that the Uyghurs are a threat, have heavily populated Xinxiang and other western provinces w/ Han (non-Muslim) Chinese. So that in the event that the question of self-determination is ever brought up, the majority of people in that province, being Chinese, will vote to keep it in China. And unlike Israel, you can bet that they’re not going to empty Xinxiang of Han Chinese. (My only problem w/ the Chinese – they follow the same policy in Tibet as well, which I oppose.)

Since we have already outsourced virtually all our manufacturing to China, why not go a step further and outsource the war on terror to them as well? Have them look after our borders, have them hunt down Jihadi suspects, prosecute honor killings and so on?

Infidel on July 3, 2012 at 9:58 am

    If I am declared a terrorist, would I receive a pension for life and a lovely home in Bermuda? I am more than up to snarling, shaking my fists, and making insane faces that would be video. I am not interested in harming anything or anyone, but it does sound like such a designation would radially improve my standard of living and increase the chances of my being admitted to the right clubs. Sigh!

    If an illegal alien can become a practicing attorney, why can’t I get this? 😉

If this happened in the US, B Hussein and the justice dept would treat the muzzies as the victims and the other passengers as the assailants. I wonder how China will deal with the people who protected themselves on this flight.

Jarhead on July 3, 2012 at 10:26 am

Actually those Uighars released from Gitmo were sent to Bermuda where we were treated to pics of them frolicking in the surf and on the pink beaches.
I just started reading a book about that area and they have mosques, recite the quran and let’s see, back about 100 years ago, they were using Arabic script for the Uighar language. Then they switched to Latin alphabet maybe in the 1930’s but then in 1982, when the book was written, Arabic script was being taught again. So this isn’t just an ancient cultural tradition where the rituals and beliefs were supplanted by Maoism. These are actively practicing Moslems.

China is less reticent than the West to deal with Muslim insurgencies because they’re proud of their culture and are prepared to defend it. The same can’t be said for Europe or the left in America whose instinct is to appease.

But not even China has fully avoided the inclination to be “sensitive”. In the run-up to the Olympics (during the Year of the Pig) China discouraged images of that animal to avoid offending their Muslim guests.

This is the Gobi desert and the climate is brutal although they devised a very clever system of aqueducts to bring water year round to the oasis towns so they are thriving agriculturally. The Han hate it however. It is like being sent to Antarctica. It is also the Northern terminus of some of the major overland routes into Tibet. In the 80’s, Kashgar was a closed zone because of it’s closeness to the USSR.
Oh I meant to mention that the people don’t have Chinese names, they have Arabic ones and Vikram Seth, who wrote the book I’m reading says they are actually more a Turkic People than Chinese.

Italkit on July 3, 2012 at 10:40 am

and China did this with no help from the TSA. Just like every single other attempted attack, the TSA does nothing and the passengers save the day. Why do we even have a TSA?

ender on July 3, 2012 at 10:44 am


    We have the TSA so that every pedo, groper, peeper, thief and derelict can have a cushy gub’mint job where unless you hump a camel in public you will not get fired.

This is a fine example of a paradox at work.

You have a totalitarian regime that routinely suppresses criticism and opposition and liberally dishes out the death sentence, yet people feel safe. And even prosperous.

If you’re at least content with having a job, a roof over your head, food on the table and enough money to get all the things you need and even want, then why worry about political freedom?

The downside is if/when the government were to fail or become derelict/negligent. Then one would be stuck with the same shittiness for a long time.

Proof positive that the world can never be perfect. Such is the nature of the human animal.

Have a Happy Fourth, my fellow Murricans. As long as you don’t operate heavy machinery afterwards! :p

The Reverend Jacques on July 3, 2012 at 11:10 am

There are 2 Muslim groups in China. One is the Uyghurs, who, as Itakit pointed out, are a Turkic people – like the Turkmen, Kazakhs, Kyrgyz and Uzbeks. The other is the Hui, who are Han Chinese, but practice Islam, which the Han don’t.

Kashgar actually falls near the Pamir mountains near Afghanistan, and is very isolated from the rest of even Xinxiang. It is to China what Dearborn is to the US – the hotbed of Jihadi activity.

Raymond is right that the Chinese don’t have any inhibitions in going w/ full brutality against insurgents. But it’s not due to any pride in Chinese culture, as the year of the pig issue that he mentioned above clearly showed. Rather, this is b’cos it has a Communist regime, and Communist regimes are always about neo-imperialism and expanding their empires, not allowing their borders to shrink. I disagree w/ how the Chinese dealt w/ that pig issue, but if for the rest of the time, they are willing to smoke the Jihadis in their borders, they are fully worthy of admiration.

The Jihadi movement of the Uyghurs is closely tied to the Jihadi movements in Turkestan (the Uyghurs call Xinxiang East Turkestan) – and their goal is to re-create a Timuride empire comprising Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Xinxiang, and bring it under one umbrella. If they managed it, it would be another Saudi Arabia – both in terms of oil revenue (both Kazakh and Turkmen are oil rich) and in terms of Islamic fanaticism, since the Islamic movement of Turkestan is their equivalent of the Muslim Brotherhood. Both the Russians and Chinese know this, and are careful to support the regimes in Tashkent and other capitals in the region in really cracking down on any Islamic activity, not just Jihadi activity. Even while they back the likes of Iran and Syria against Israel.

Jarhead, I think your onto something there dude, if this incident occured here in the US, Obama and his DOJ would treat these muslims as the “victims”, and you know why, becuase we have a few muslim lobbying groups in this country (ie, CAIR) who’ll scream the made up BS term of “yadda yadda Islamophobia yadda yadda”, and let’s not forget this, “yadda yadda racists yadda yadda”!

And Debbie, if these folks where christians, jews, hindus, buddhists, wiccans, atheists, agnostics, etc., and they tried to attempt such an act as these muslim men, the media along with the “Daily Mail” would have a field day naming their religious/spiritual views. And since the Daily Mail is in Great Britian, they know that if you mention either islam or muslim(s), the muslim citizens in Britian would probably call for a so-called “fatwa” on the Daily Mail publishers?

“A nation is defined by its borders, language & culture!”

Talk about blatant propaganda!! A brawl over seats?? Guess they just happened to have the explosives with them in case someone took their First Class seats.

Dirk on July 3, 2012 at 11:25 am

Feel good story of the day. Rets Worr!

lee, of the lower case "l" on July 3, 2012 at 11:33 am

Too bad they didn’t kill all of them. At least the Chinese deal ruthlessly with Muslims.

rjkatz on July 3, 2012 at 11:38 am

While I dislike the Chicoms and their represive regime you got to hand it to them on handling their little airbourne “incident”. Smoked them like a pack of unfiltered camels(the cigarette not the animal Muslims so don’t get excited). Thanks for the info about the Hui Chinese Infidel I didn’t know that. It figures that the Chicoms didn’t want to offend the babarbians during the year of the pig with regards to the Olympics. Everyone bends over for these fools so why would they be any different. And Debbie you’re right. The media would be naming the religion down to a tee if the perps were Christian or Jewish. But since it’s the “peaceful” religion of Islam not a peep.

Ken b on July 3, 2012 at 11:40 am

The Daily Mail is pathetic. The dhimmified Daily Mail editors do not dare to name the cult to which the Uighurs belong. That name is Islam. Also the editors do not dare address the adherent Uighurs as Muslim. This should be mentioned in the story at least three times, so I will state the unmentionable three more times in this response.

The governmental cult of Islam is called a religion. [Obama says respect it.] The Uighur hijackers are Muslims. So Muslim apologists say that the Muslim passengers died for a better seat selection! Understand the strategy–lying for the cause of Islam is taqiyya.

Eugene Savoy on July 3, 2012 at 2:00 pm

I would say Vive les Chinois. I like what they did. China is polluted by a Moslem Minority who wants to rule China itself. This is the work of the Saudi Arabians who want to be the supreme power in the world. I wish some chinese immigrate to Saudi land and do some nice work there.

Excellent article. Excellent outcome.

samurai on July 3, 2012 at 7:02 pm

    I have absolutely no problem with what he Chinese passengers and police did to those miscreants.

    “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.”

    Is Raxit serious? That World Uyghur Congress is just a front for a bunch of jihadis. It should not be allowed to operate in any Western country. I have many probems with the People’s Republic of China, but dealing with the Uigher’s roughly is not on that list. I would love to throw the People’s Liberation Army at the wonderful people in Yemen and Somalia. Things would end very quickly if there were no escape routes.

    Worry on July 4, 2012 at 8:12 pm

“Excellent article. Excellent outcome.”

Amen, Samurai.

JeffE on July 3, 2012 at 9:13 pm

Well if the Uyghur’s wanted certain seats and those seats were already filled why couldn’t the people in those seats just give them up to the Moslems, sort of in the spirit of appeasement. Then when the aircraft reaches cruising altitude they tie the Moslems to their seats and toss them, seats and all, out of the back of the aircraft. But that’s just me I suppose, I’m from the school of “The only good Moslem terrorist is a DEAD Moslem terrorist”.
