Chinese Muslim Protests Spreading

Chinese Muslims continue to cause widespread unrest throughout northern China after clashes erupted between traditional Han Chinese and Muslim Chinese prior to this past weekend.
Han Chinese are reporting that hundreds of their fellow compatriots were beaten and attacked last week after Muslims began rioting in Chinas’ northern regions leaving nearly 200 Han chinese dead in the aftermath. As a result thousands of Han Chinese have taken to the streets with machetes, wood clubs and knives to exact revenge upon the Muslim population.
The western city of Urumqi is known as a Muslim majority region in northern China.

    The CBC is referring to this as "Ethnic Violence." Kinda like those "Youths" in France that get uppity and burn cars and riot in the streets.

    We'll have a hope of dealing with the problem when the media find the guts to report accurately and honestly on what is obviously Islamic Violence.
