Comments from NBA part-owner Chamath Palihapitiya that “nobody cares about what’s happening to the Uyghurs” have generated controversy and drawn reactions from U.S. government officials and a media outlet controlled by the Chinese Communist Party.
The United Kingdom's All-Party Parliamentary Group alleges in a new report that the North Korean regime has engaged in religious persecution, modern-day slavery, murder, torture and the abuse of women.
Given that modern-day Turkey desires to recreate the Ottoman Empire and reclaim its position of international significance, President Biden’s decision to reclassify the mass killings of Armenian Christians under the Ottoman Empire in 1915 as genocide is both significant and commendable.
Over the weekend, President Biden formally recognized the mass killings of Armenian Christians in 1915 as genocide.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, in a statement released on President Trump’s final full day in office, accused China of committing genocide against the Uyghur people.
Initially receiving rave reviews, feedback on Disney's live action Mulan has chilled considerably after reports that Disney filmed substantial portions of the movie in China’s Xinjiang province, with the blessing and cooperation of the Chinese Communist government.
Xinjiang is the home province of some 12 million Muslim Uighurs that live in China. According to the U. S. State Department, over one million of them have been moved to concentration camps where “they are starved, abused, tortured, electrocuted, raped and even killed.”
Beijing’s treatment of the Uighur minority in Xinjiang Province qualifies, in every way, as genocide. Writing in Newsweek, Israeli Human Rights Lawyer Arsen Ostrovsky didn’t hesitate to call the Communist Party’s actions “genocide,” pointing especially to the “forced sterilizations, abortions and intrusive birth prevention.” These actions alone meet the requirement for genocide and have led to “the population growth rates in the two largest Uyghur prefectures [to fall] by 84% between 2015 and 2018.”
