Islamic Jihad Terrorist Thugs Attempt to Destroy China Southern Airliner

Islamic Jihad Terrorist Thugs in China, attempt to destroy a China Southern airliner, by lighting a fire in the lavatory on Saturday.

The flight departing for Wuhan, was forced to make an emergency landing returning to Diwobao International Airport in Urumqi, capital city of Xinjiang.

Two passengers a man and a woman were removed from the aircraft by Chinese Authorities.

Xinjiang’s  population of 21 million is divided between Turkic Uighur’s Muslims and Han Chinese, many who have arrived in recent years.

In March, 2008 two passengers a Uighur Muslim man and woman, were taken into custody by Chinese authorities after attempting to bring down a China Southern Airline jet enroute from Xinjiang to Beijing, by igniting a liquid smuggled in a canned drink.

On the 17 July, I wrote here that President Obama claims that Uighur Muslims pose no threat to security and are merely misunderstood victims of circumstance.

    Thank you for posting this information. Too often we miss these international events that can help put the news in perspective.

    One of the heartbreaking I remember reading about is rarely ever talked about here in the USA…the Beslan school tragedy/massacre. 330 people were killed over three days, including 172 small children by Chechen militants who were said to be backed by muslim militants.
