Al-Qaeda’s next front – China

Al-Qaeda posed a threat to China for the first time, promising to organize acts of terrorism against Chinese workers in Northern Africa in revenge for the death of Moslems-Uygurs, The Times wrote.

Al-Qaeda threats followed the disorders in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region of China during the last week. 184 persons were killed and 1,680 wounded in the riots. They were mostly the Chinese who fell victims of the Uigurs, but international terrorist network Al-Qaeda promised to revenge the PRC for the death of the Uigurs during recent interethnic collisions in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region.

After the police and the military suppressed the riots in Xinjiang, the Chinese law enforcement authorities reinforced their activities in this autonomous region where a number of acts of terrorism had been recently performed.

However, the Islamic terrorists have no significant base to carry out the "actions of revenge" at the PRC territory, except for the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, but it can not be said about other countries, where the Chinese Diaspora prospers.

The Chinese specialists working in Northern Africa and other Moslem countries will face a serious danger. Al-Qaeda promised to revenge for the coreligionists' deaths by acts of terrorism against the Chinese workers in Algeria and across the whole Northwest of Africa. For example, the number of Chinese workers in Algeria amounts to 50,000 individuals.

Three weeks before the riots in Urumqi, AQIM attacked the Algerian escort accompanying the Chinese engineers, participating in the road project. 24 security guards were killed. The Chinese did not suffer, but both Chinese engineers and security forces may become the aim of future attacks.

The events in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region resulted in massive protests both in Europe, where a large Uygur Diaspora lives, and in the countries of the Middle East. The biggest demonstrations took place in Turkey. Turkey’s Prime Minister Recep Erdoğan called the events in the Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region "the genocide of the Uygurs." 

According to experts' opinion, the Islamic world will only make appeals and threats. When commenting on Erdoğan’s statement, one political analyst stressed out that China was a quarter of mankind and that neither the USA nor the Muslim world could influence it.”

However, the Chinese secret services will not underestimate the threats from such terrorist organizations, as Al-Qaeda.

Several years ago, a prominent Indonesian businessman who now resides in Canada, insisted on meeting me in a back room of one of Jakarta's posh restaurants. An avid reader of mine, he 'had something urgent to tell me', after finding out that our paths were going to be crossing in this destroyed and hopelessly polluted Indonesian capital.
