The Uighurs

This information that follows is from a website called The Long War Journal.  I am unfamiliar with the website, but the information there I have also seen in various other places.  My reason for citing this information is so that everyone can be aware of the type of people the current administration is considering resettling into America.

On April 20 of this year, Abdul Haq, the leader of the Eastern Turkistan Islamic Party (“ETIP”), was added to the list of designated terrorists compiled by the US Treasury Department.  The UN placed Haq on its list of persons associated with Osama bin Laden, al Qaeda, or the Taliban on April 15.

According to the article:

“Currently, seventeen Uighur men who are suspected members or associates of the organization are detained at Guantánamo. Five other Uighurs who were detained at Gitmo were previously released to Albania in 2006. The men are all from China’s Xinjiang region and are alleged to have traveled to Afghanistan to join the ETIP/ETIM’s jihad.”

Although these are Chinese terrorists, they have been trained in terrorism to be used against all western countries.  Although the Uighurs have denied any connection to Al Qaeda or the Taliban, Uighur detainees also admitted to training at a terrorist camp in the Tora Bora Mountains. That camp was run by Abdul Haq and Hassan Mahsum, and was most likely supported by al Qaeda and the Taliban.

These are the men that President Obama is attempting to relocate in Virginia (providing them with housing and financial assistance).  If that happens, Americans will be financially supporting the very people who want to kill them.  It makes no sense at all!  Please read the entire article at The Long War Journal for further information on who the Uighurs are.
