Turk­ish demon­stra­tors burn­ing Chi­nese flag

COMMENT: Once again, we vis­it the sub­ject of the Earth Island or “World Island” as it is some­times called. Stretch­ing from the Straits of Gibral­tar, all across Europe, most of the Mid­dle East, Eura­sia, Rus­sia, Chi­na and India, that stretch of land: com­pris­es most of the world’s land mass; con­tains most of the world’s pop­u­la­tion and most of the world’s nat­ur­al resources (includ­ing oil and nat­ur­al gas.) Geopoliti­cians have long seen con­trol­ling that land mass as the key to world dom­i­na­tion.  The pop­u­la­tion that occu­pies the mid­dle of that stretch of geog­ra­phy is large­ly Mus­lim.

Uti­liz­ing that Mus­lim pop­u­la­tion to con­trol the resources of the Earth Island is a strat­a­gem that has been in effect in the West for a cen­tu­ry.

Now, we are see­ing the Uighurs, a Turko­phone, Mus­lim group in the petro­le­um and nat­ur­al-resources-rich Xin­jiang province of Chi­na, receiv­ing sup­port from the Pan-Turk­ist/­fas­cist  Nation­al Action Par­ty and its youth wing, the Grey Wolves

As Rus­sia is being boxed in by renascent Ukrain­ian fas­cism in the East and Cau­casian Islamist ter­ror in the Cau­ca­sus, we must won­der if the NAP/Grey Wolf PR offen­sive against Chi­na and on behalf of the Uighurs is part of an ongo­ing NATO/U.S./Underground Reich effort against the core of the Earth Island, Rus­sia and Chi­na.

Are we see­ing an effort at break­ing those coun­tries apart?  Are the Islamist and Pan-Turk­ist move­ments align­ing in fur­ther­ing this goal?

Will this same Under­ground Reich strat­a­gem ulti­mate­ly be used against the U.S.? Will the South secede again? Will the Pacif­ic North­west?

“Anti-Chi­na Sen­ti­ment Is Sud­den­ly Sweep­ing Over Turkey” by Bar­bara Tasch [Busi­ness Insid­er]; Yahoo News; 7/21/2015.

Protests. Burnt flags. Attacks on tourists and restau­rants. Ram­pant racism on social media.

Anti-Chi­na sen­ti­ment has been reach­ing new heights in Turkey over the last few weeks, as Turk­ish Pres­i­dent Recep Tayyip Erdo­gan is set to make an offi­cial state vis­it to Chi­na lat­er this month.

It start­ed at the begin­ning of July, when a Chi­nese restau­rant in Istan­bul was attacked by five men with sticks and stones. 

“We do not want a Chi­nese restau­rant here, get out of our town!” the men were heard say­ing, accord­ing to Al-Mon­i­tor.

A few days lat­er, a Kore­an tourist mis­tak­en to be Chi­nese was attacked by a group of ultra-nation­al­ists in the cap­i­tal. On the same day in Balike­sir, pro­test­ers hung an effi­gy of Mao Zedong. And a few days lat­er, the protests spread again to Istan­bul, where Chi­nese tourists were attacked and harassed, accord­ing to CNN.

The protests gath­ered momen­tum a few weeks ago, when reports emerged that Uighurs — who share eth­nic­i­ty and have close cul­tur­al ties with Turk­ish Mus­lims — who were liv­ing in west­ern regions of Chi­na had alleged­ly not been allowed to fast dur­ing the holy month of Ramadan. Those alle­ga­tions have been denied by the Chi­nese gov­ern­ment. Uighurs make up around 45% of the Xin­jiang autonomous region of Chi­na.

On July 9, a group of about 200 men who are believed to be part of the East Turkestan Sol­i­dar­i­ty Group attacked the Thai embassy in Istan­bul with rocks and wood­en planks. The attack fol­lowed the repa­tri­a­tion of over 100 Uighurs back to Chi­na by the Thai gov­ern­ment.

In a recent inter­view, Devle­ty Bahceli, chair­man of the far-right Nation­al­ist Action Par­ty (MHP) in Turkey, whose mem­bers have been accused of assault­ing tourists, said they are “sen­si­tive to injus­tices in Chi­na.”

“Our nation­al­ist youth is sen­si­tive to injus­tices in Chi­na. They should have the free­dom to exer­cise their demo­c­ra­t­ic rights. These are young kids. They may have been pro­voked. Plus, how are you going to dif­fer­en­ti­ate between Kore­an and Chi­nese? They both have slant­ed eyes. Does it real­ly mat­ter?” he said, accord­ing to Al-Mon­i­tor

Those racist com­ments caused uproar in nation­al and inter­na­tion­al media. And fol­low­ing grow­ing social pres­sure, Nation­al­ist Action Par­ty mem­bers told Al-Mon­i­tor that they view all tourists as their guests. The head of the Grey Wolves, the youth wing of the MHP in Istan­bul, told the BBC that the attacks took place between pro­test­ers and the police — and that no tourists were harmed.

 “The safe­ty of every tourist com­ing to our coun­try is our respon­si­bil­i­ty. We can’t tol­er­ate any sort of vio­lence,” he said. 

Amid the mul­ti­ply­ing attacks, the Chi­nese embassy issued a trav­el warn­ing to its cit­i­zens and told them to avoid going out alone, get­ting close to protests, or tak­ing pic­tures of them. The Chi­nese Phil­har­mon­ic Orches­tra also can­celed its August con­cert in Istan­bul, and local police announced it would pro­vide extra secu­ri­ty for an exhi­bi­tion by a Chi­nese artist. . . . .
