    China is in the enviable position of being able to block the bulldozer of Islam inside its country. Many in Europe would LOVE to be able to slow their Islam down, but they can’t due to not being formatted as authoritarian and due to already having too much Islam.

    It’s one thing to criticize Xi for purges, if they are unjustified, but the Ramadan fasting matter is completely unrelated. These are not things you should “put together” (as you mentioned in last paragraph).

    Just remember, this is the system Obama wishes he could emulate.

      On rooting out corruption I wish he would. But Obama only wants to emulate the big gov dictatorial bad parts of China.

    As Thomas Friedman might say, “Look! China is rooting out corruption!” Uh, yeah.

  • David Govett

    Corruption in the Communist Party.
    Quelle surprise.

    Let’s hope that China goes near-full counter-jihad. Nothing quite like seeing your adversary (China) destroy your enemies. (Islam)

    Yeah, the mussies are going to stop fasting because some fast-a$$ed bureaucrat in Beijing said so. All the Beijing boys did was poke the hornets nest.

    “The net worth of the 70 richest delegates in China’s National People’s Congress, which opens its annual session on March 5, rose to 565.8 billion yuan ($89.8 billion) in 2011, a gain of $11.5 billion from 2010, according to figures from the Hurun Report, which tracks the country’s wealthy. That compares to the $7.5 billion net worth of all 660 top officials in the three branches of the U.S. government.”

    How corrupt is the Chinese government? Numbers don’t lie, it looks like it’s rotten to the core.
