4 20, the U.S. Treasury announced a high profile, would a terrorist organization “East Turkistan Islamic Movement “(the” East Turkistan Islamic Movement “) leader Abdul Haq (aka Mamtimin Mamat) economic sanctions. U.S. Treasury Department said in a statement, Huck had planned to carry out terrorist attacks on the Beijing Olympics. According to the U.S. Presidential Order 13224, the U.S. would freeze the assets of Huck is prohibited to provide funds, technical or material support.
U.S. Treasury sanctions statement, opened the “East Turkistan” organization abroad tip of the iceberg activity. Over the years, the “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” and “WUC” led by “Eastern Turkistan” elements in the overseas expansion of forces to seek Western support, continue to plot to split the motherland. United States is the “East Turkistan” elements of a major base of operations.
“sanctions only for the leader of an organization, not for the ‘East Turkistan’ sanctions.” China Institute of Contemporary International Relations, Li Wei, counter-terrorism experts on “World News” reporter analysis. Li Wei that the U.S. tried to high-profile announcement of the “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” leader Haq sanctions, that the war on terror is no longer a double standard. But in fact the U.S. did not give up in the “East Turkistan” on the issue of double standards. U.S. sanctions against Huck, it is also secretly funded the other East Turkistan organizations – the “World Uygur Youth Congress” (the “WUC”).
According to Wei, the “East Turkistan” is divided into two forces: an order to “WUC” led another wave of “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” headed. And in the United States to raise funds and get support, mainly “WUC” as the representative of the “East Turkistan” forces. This forces to be attached to the U.S. Congress’ National Endowment for Democracy, “the public funding. Although the name of the Foundation’s signature non-governmental organizations, but it and the U.S. State Department, the CIA has close ties. The organization for many years by funding, training, provision of equipment and other means to support “democracy movement”, “Tibetan separatist,” “East Turkistan” and other anti-China forces. “From the study speculated that view, the ‘East Turkistan’ elements may also be from the U.S. intelligence agencies have been funded.”
reported that “WUC” branches in the United States, “the Uyghur American Association,” Each year can be from “U.S. National Endowment for Democracy” won $ 200,000 funding. In 2006 its “East Turkistan” overall funding of 39.5 million, while in 2007 it reached $ 520,000, funding also covers “WUC” and “International Uyghur Human Rights and Democracy Foundation.”
As for the “East Turkistan Islamic Movement”, the United States since 2002, announced it as a terrorist organization, so it forces it is difficult to raise funds in the United States. It is reported that the “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” 80% of the money from bin Laden, led to the “base” organizations and other terrorist forces. In addition, the “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” through the drug trade, starting a business overseas, robbery with violence, etc. to raise funds.
side to play the human rights card Bossi sympathy
learned that the “world-dimensional” and the “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” usually take a different approach to divide and destroy activities. “WUC” mainly rely on to meet some of Western democratic values, the so-called ethnic and religious issues with human rights, to fight the foreign anti-China political and public support. The “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” is a means of violence as the main terrorist organizations.
According to Li Wei introduced, the two forces linked not only secretly, but also in action, there are many echoes. “Especially from the ”2006 World Uyghur Congress was held in the second, they in nation-building strategy in achieving the overall goal of ’50′ in closer to this goal it means for the establishment of the Xinjiang region” East Turkistan Islamic Republic’。”
high visibility of the “WUC” leader Kadeer, on several occasions to lobby the U.S. Congress. She has called on U.S. lawmakers concerned about women’s human rights issues in Xinjiang, China, and in the “Washington Post” wrote to discredit China, with the so-called fight for democracy and human rights to win Western sympathy. To expand the publicity effect, the “East Turkistan” elements also deliberately follow the Dalai clique, Kadeer touted as the “spiritual mother” in an attempt to so-called “Xinjiang problem” international.
In addition, the “WUC” led forces are constantly integrated in the extraterritorial “East Turkistan” organization, to expand the size of their organization, and these include the “East Turkistan Islamic Movement . ” Li Wei, said: “As a result, they attract the Western anti-China forces will be even greater.”
secret activities in the territory of the United States
reported that in the United States the “East Turkistan” elements are about 1000 people. In this regard, Li Wei, said, “East Turkistan” forces are not large, the surface, they create a great momentum of public opinion, “but in fact, not many members of each organization, they rely on media hype, giving a outside forces, a great illusion. ”
2004 In September, the Australian “East Turkistan Association,” President Ami special Yijun Bo Emperor as the “President” and the United States’ East Turkistan National Freedom Center, “Rani is the main Xianwaer Yusup soil “Prime Minister” of the “East Turkistan government in exile”, conference held in Washington correspondent announced. Subsequently, a handful of “East Turkistan” elements in the White House next to Lafayette Park rally, attended by a few Western reporters by spreading the “East Turkistan independence” remarks. In addition, the “East Turkistan” elements often issued a statement via the Internet to create public opinion momentum.
Although the “East Turkistan” organizations like the high-profile campaign, but their leader out is not much exposure. In addition to “WUC” Kadeer, head outside, its spokesman Dilixiati be more of a show his face. In the United States announced economic sanctions against Haq after Dilixiati accepted the BBC interview, denied the “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” and its leaders are linked. According to Wei, the “East Turkistan” forces activities, a feature that not many public figures, many organizations are members of secret activities.
why high-profile U.S. fight against “East Turkistan Islamic Movement”
U.S. financial Department of sanctions, the “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” undoubtedly constitutes a blow. In August 2002, the U.S. government for the first time acknowledged the “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” terrorist organization; April 2004, the U.S. State Department to the “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” as international terrorist organizations, and prohibit any U.S. government or the private sector to provide any form of support.
the United States announced sanctions against high-profile purpose Haq, Li Wei believes that this reflects the U.S. anti-terrorism policy in a number of trends. Obama took office, the Bush administration, anti-terrorism policy has made some major adjustments to give reference to the global war on terrorism, to seek more multilateral anti-terrorism cooperation, including cooperation with developing countries. In addition, the United States are constantly seeking to bridge the rift with the Islamic world. Li Wei believes that the U.S. high-profile sanctions against “East Turkistan Islamic Movement” leader, another may show a positive signal: the United States Guantanamo “East Turkistan” suspects repatriated to China have increased the likelihood.
