Why US allies concerned about Uyghurs but blind to the killings of Palestinians?

The United States, Britain, Germany, and some NGOs including Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International, known as the US allies, recently hosted a virtual event on Xinjiang’s human rights situation at the United Nations in New York. They have accused China of genocide, forced labor, and other human rights violations in its northwestern region Xinjiang.

The allies have long been blaming China for the oppression of Uyghur Muslims in the region. They have already imposed several sanctions and initiated tougher measures against China for, what they say, violations of human rights in Xinjiang.

Moreover, some Western media continues fabricating and running different stories of Muslim oppression apparently to justify punitive actions taken by their governments against China. Thus the stories of concentration camps, mass detentions of millions of Uyghurs, forced labor and birth control, and genocide in Xinjiang have been making the rounds for several years.

However, the allies have now created a huge hue and cry about Uyghurs at a time when Israel is indiscriminately killing Palestinian Muslims including women and children. They are pretending to be friends and well-wishers of Muslims, but they have been caught red-handed this time. Because they are clamoring for the human rights of Muslims in China, but quite silent about the killings of Muslims in Palestine. Thus their hypocrisies have been revealed to the world once again.

The sheer hypocrisies of the allies have helped people’s memories flash through previous incidents of their (the allies) prejudice for Israel and blindness to Zionists’ worst crimes against humanity and indiscriminate killings of Palestinian Muslims for over seven decades.

The world still remembers how the then British empire in cooperation with its allies established Israel in the land of Palestine. People reminisce about how the US and its allies have since been protecting and assisting Israel to become a nuclear power from scratch.

The International community knows how often and blindly the US has been applying its veto power in the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) to save Israel from the accountability and prospective trials for its crimes against humanity in the territory of Palestine.

People will never forget and forgive the allies for their unjust and illegitimate roles in helping Israel occupy Palestinian homes and property. Muslims will never consider them friends, no matter how much they pretend to be well-wishers of the Islamic community.

The double standard of the allies in dealing with Muslims based on where they live has divulged their true color to the world, especially to the Muslims. It is crystal clear that the allies are playing with the sacred sentiment of Islamic brotherhood to turn Muslims against China. Thus the allies want to harm both Muslim countries and China that are interconnected, interdependent, and complementary to their development and existence to some extent.

On the contrary, China has come out as a friend in need of Muslims by taking bold steps in the UNSC as its chairman for May. It has proposed and chaired an emergency meeting at the UNSC to address the deteriorating hostility between Israel and Palestine.

China has expressed high concern about the current Palestine-Israel situation. In collaboration with relevant countries, China has drafted and disseminated a press statement. Most countries supported this draft and called for its early release. However, the UNSC has yet to reach a consensus on it due to the obstruction of a country, understandably the US.

China has condemned violence targeting civilians. It has called on parties to avoid further provocative rhetoric and acts and take actions conducive to reducing violence and achieving a soft-landing of the situation, to restore peace and stability on the ground at an early date.

China has reiterated that the UNSC should do something to reaffirm commitment and firm support to the two-state solution, work for the de-escalation of the situation and fulfill the obligations of upholding international peace and security. China has also reaffirmed its determination to continue its best efforts to ensure that the UNSC takes action about the situation in East Jerusalem.

Though the allies are running propaganda against China’s Xinjiang policy, Beijing has walked a long way to develop the region, resulting in an improvement of the lifestyle of Muslims there. From 2014 to 2019, the per capita disposable income of urban residents in Xinjiang increased by 8.6 percent. The rural residents have witnessed an average annual nominal growth of their income of 8.9 percent.

The world has already learned that Xinjiang has bidden farewell to absolute poverty. The last impoverished counties including Shache, Moyu, and Akto in the region have managed to end abject poverty.

People in the once-poverty-hit counties now have stable access to education, medical care, and other civil amenities. Following the poverty eradication from the last counties, more than 3.08 million registered impoverished residents in Xinjiang have shaken off absolute poverty forever.

Muslims are well aware that the US allies are pretending to come out as their friends by shedding crocodile tears for Uyghurs in Xinjiang. But the allies’ treatments of Muslims in other regions say otherwise. Muslims think that the allies are using the Xinjiang issue as a shield to hide their long history of oppression in Muslim countries. Since actions certainly speak louder than words, Muslims know who are their genuine and bonafide friends around the world.

re: "accomplice for supplying the tools of death and destruction" to the Jewish state for genocide and state terrorism against the Palestinians."


   How else could they protect themselves against them slingshot?...

    And how else could they take away Palestine land??

     The term "occupied Palestinian territory" refers as a whole to the geographical area of the Palestinian territory occupied by Israel since 1967.


          United Nations Security Council Resolution 2334:     The resolution states that Israel's settlement activity constitutes a "flagrant violation" of international law and has "no legal validity".   The resolution passed in a 14–0 vote by members of the U.N. Security Council (UNSC). Four members with United Nations Security Council veto power, China, France, Russia, and the United Kingdom, voted for the resolution, but the United States
 abstained


Reactions by Security Council states
  China: The Chinese Deputy Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Wu Haitao, welcomed 
the resolution and said it reflects the common aspiration of the international community.
  France: The French Ambassador to the UN, François 
Delattre, said the resolution's adoption is "an important and historic event" and noted it was the first time that the Security Council had 
clearly stated the obvious, that settlement activities undermined a two-state solution.[44]
  Malaysia: Prime Minister Najib Razak described 
the vote as "a victory to the people of Palestine".
  New Zealand: Foreign Minister Murray McCully stated that "we have been very open about 
our view that the [UN Security Council] should be doing more to support the Middle East peace process and the position we adopted today is 
totally in line with our long established policy on the Palestinian question" and that "the vote today should not come as a surprise to anyone 
and we look forward to continuing to engage constructively with all parties on this issue".
  Russia: The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russia 
issued a statement which said that "the Russian Federation voted for it because the resolution is based on tested formulas reflecting the general 
view of the international community, which have been reaffirmed many times, on the illegality of Israeli settlement plans in the Palestinian
 territory. (...) Our experience shows convincingly that a two-state solution to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict is only possible through direct
 talks between Palestinians and Israelis without any preconditions."[48][49]
  Senegal: After several retribution measures were announced by Israel,
 Senegal Ministry of Foreign Affairs stated that his country "steadily supported the research of a fair and equitable solution to the Palestinian-Israeli
conflict."
  Spain: The Spanish Ambassador to the UN and incumbent President of the UN Security Council, Román Oyarzun Marchesi, welcomed the resolution; 
he noted that Spain had always affirmed the illegality of the settlements and said the resolution was consistent with Spain's position.[44]
  United 
Kingdom: The British Ambassador to the UN, Matthew Rycroft, welcomed the resolution and said it was a "clear reinforcement" of international belief 
in a two-state solution, that Israel's settlement expansion was "corroding the possibility" of a lasting peace in the Middle East and that "the 
settlement expansion is illegal.
   Venezuela: The Venezuelan Ambassador to the UN called the resolution's passage historic.
  Ukraine: Ukraine's 
ambassador to the United Nations Volodymyr Yelchenko compared Israel's settlement of the West Bank to the Russian occupation of Crimea.[59] The 
Ukrainian Foreign Ministry stated that the Resolution's text was balanced: Israel was to desist from settlements, and Palestinians were to adopt 
measures to counter terrorism.
Reactions by other states
  Australia: Australia was one of the few countries to support the position of the Israeli 
government, implying that had they been on the UN Security Council they most likely would have voted against the resolution. Foreign Minister Julie 
Bishop stated that, "In voting at the UN, the Coalition Government has consistently not supported one-sided resolutions targeting Israel". Bishop also 
distanced the Australian government from remarks made by US Secretary of State John Kerry and President Barack Obama.
  Belgium: Foreign Minister and 
Deputy Prime Minister Didier Reynders welcomed the resolution, stating that "Belgium fully shares the position of the international community expressed 
in this resolution" and that "the settlement policy of the territories occupied by Israel is illegal, and its continuation seriously jeopardizes the 
possibility of a two-state solution."[62]
  Germany: Foreign Minister and Chairman-in-Office of the OSCE Frank-Walter Steinmeier welcomed the resolution

 and said it confirms what has long been the position of the German government, stating that the Israeli settlement of occupied territory is an obstacle 
to peace and a two-state solution.[63] He further said that "a democratic Israel is only achievable through a two-state-solution."[64] Steinmeier later 
praised the speech by John Kerry which outlined the United States' position on the Israeli–Palestinian conflict and endorsed Kerry's principles for a 
solution to the conflict.
  Iran: Iranian Foreign Ministry Spokesman Bahram Qassemi welcomed the resolution and asked "the international community,
particularly the United Nations," to take "effective and fundamental steps in this regard after more than seven decades."
  Norway: Foreign Minister 
Børge Brende welcomed the resolution and said it must be the basis for a solution to the Israeli–Palestinian conflict. He said that "it is important 
that Israel complies with it, because the settlements are in violation of international law".
  Sweden: Foreign Minister and Deputy Prime Minister Margot Wallström welcomed the resolution and said it confirms the position of both the EU and Sweden on the continued Israeli settlement of the occupied West Bank.
  Turkey: The Foreign Ministry welcomed the vote in a statement and urged Israel to abide by the Security Council decision and to halt all 
settlement activities in the Palestinian areas.

There was no sarcasm there to be spotted, so I will leave the fools to sort it out amongst themselves. The Palestinians, as you say, would have gotten their weapons from somewhere: maybe USA(!), maybe some other major power closer to home for you that would never contemplate hypocrisy in its own geo-political gameplan.

UNITED NATIONS (AP) —" The United States said Wednesday it opposes a proposed U.N. Security Council resolution calling for a cease-fire in the conflict between Israel and Gaza’s Hamas rulers, reiterating that it could interfere with the Biden administration’s efforts to end the hostilities.

France drafted the resolution after the U.S. blocked at least four attempts to have the council issue a press statement calling for an end to the violence, giving the same reason. Diplomats said all other council members supported the statement."

There you have it, US is hypocrite;  Biden calls for ceasefire but his ambassador at UN opposed it!   Let readers make their own judgement! Who are they trying to fool?

Any fool can see through your sarcasm!  While Palestinians must have got their weapons from somewhere,  the Israelis got theirs from the US which hypocritically claim to want a ceasefire while supplying Israel with millions of dollars of advanced, state of the art weapons which cause mass destruction and deaths!  This is the point, not about where the Palestinians got weapons to defend themselves, every country needs weapons to defend themselves, more so the Palestinians who face a much more powerful enemy just nextdoor!!

I thought about it and would respond by indicating that the Palestinians are using weapons of their own to attack Israel.

It's so obvious the US don't like Muslims;  last president Trump even banned Muslims from entering the US!

Like I said, they ae hypocrites, calling for cessation while supplying Israel with lethal weapons to use against innocent Muslim mothers and children, a war crime to be investigated by the ICC!

Biden is playing game; on one hand call for cessation, on the other hand supplied millions of dollars of deadly weapons to Israel to use on the Muslims in Gaza!  Go think about!

US President Biden has called for a cessation of violence in this conflict. Happy now?
