Finally a country that can stand up to Muslims and control them too. A country with a back bone to stand up to terrorists.

China has no "hurt feelings" syndrome to exploit, besides they have a long history with the muzzies and their evil ways

I'm on China's side on this one.

I don't like the Chinese justice system in general but in some instances I really applaud it.....like with Muslim troublemakers. China won't get much opposition from USA when it comes to Muslims.

The hate among so many Muslims is beyond comprehension. Islam wants to destroy, kill, maim and take us all back 1,400 years. I wish America was more like China in this instance.

China has the survival of the fittest instinct that made man the dominant animal on this planet. The Christian nations need to turn back to God or fight for their own survival against militant islam; which like China has the survival of the fittest instinct.

Roger_AR, AussieChristian... You people are sick. You are rejoicing that China limit the ability of people to practice their religion? You disgust me.

China is "cracking down" on Islam because they are afraid of separatist movements by the Uygur minority peoples. The Uygur have a long, rich history, although most people in the West do not know of them. Today, Uygurs are mostly Muslim, but not in any way fundamentalist (most drink beer or Vodka...women do not wear body-covering clothes, etc) But they are treated like 3rd class citizens in their own country. The large Chinese companies which operate in Xinjiang (where most the Uygurs in China live) don't promote Uygurs to manager level. And now China is just going to make ethnic tension worse for no good reason.

And you fools...you r-tard turd-head pig-f*cking idiots support this.

Muslims have done it to themselves. With their violent behavior all around the world they have given their people and their religion a very bad reputation.

It makes it easier for people to abuse the few good Muslims that there are. Muslims always like to blame and project. They need look no farther than in the nearest mirror. Their very bad reputation is their own fault.

I totally agree.

CHRISTIANS have done it to themselves. With their violent behavior (um...missionaryism, the Holocaust, the crusades, Oklahoma City bombing, the Iraq war, Black slavery, Opium Trade in China, etc) all around the world they have given their people and their religion a very bad reputation.

If only China was democratic then I would debate this issue. China oppresses it's own people.

You are wrong. It's the political ideologies that oppresses people same can't be said about political Islam. Islam is 90 % political and 10 % religious.

Your post did not deserve a polite reply. Your post, and Roger-AR's post are racist. Racism must be combated...and not politely.

I am Jewish. Many of my ancestors were murdered by Christians during the holocaust. I live in China, where Christian missionaries worked hand-in-hand with opium dealers. Today, missionaries come to China to spread the Word. And they give food and education to those who convert...they commit the blasphemy of selling G*d. So you and others saying the Muslims - as a people...as a religion... are violent, to me, is unbelievable hypocracy.

As I do not eat pork, I often eat at Muslim restaurants. From there, I have made several Muslim friends. One is my best friend in China. And although they are treated like shit in their own country...with little protection under law and subject to discrimination and persecution from China's government AND business people... as a group they are noble, peaceful, and far more intelligent than you represent yourself with your post. So I find what you say to be personally insulting. Hence I feel fine about the language I use to describe you.

This is not limiting the practicing of religion. If you travel throught China you will understand from the sheer number of churches, mosques and temples that suppression of religion is a myth.

This is purely about security of the general public from those who wish to use violence to express themselves.

Respecting others opinions and answering in a decent way is how people should conduct themselves...
If you dont agree you just say so without being so rude.
There is often times when i dont agre .. yet i am not rude in my replies ... but I voice my personal opinion.... its not hard to do ...

And if you are really Jewish ... you would understand everything... yeah ok you dont eat pork ... and most of the time its more of a personal choice just like people who become vegetarians ... thats not written in religious text but thats what people do.

If a governement can see that people are causing problems due to something they crack down on them .. doesnt matter what it is ...
They have done it to Christians in china now they are doing it to Islam ... so if its good for the goose its good for the gander.....

I have traveled all over China. As part of work, I pretty much travel every day.

China DOES CONTROL religious organizations. If that control means that government officials and workers are not allowed to worship...if that control means that people are not allowed to pray outside of temple / church / mosque...if that control means that that people who go to a Mosque are being monitored...THAT MEANS THAT CONTROL IS SUPPRESSION.

Now, the fact is that the CCP...and really more the Xinjiang CCP (not all central party doing this) is suppressing Uygur people. HuiZu (Chinese Muslims) are not being suppressed at all.

The dumb thing is...its not needed and will make things worse. Uygurs are not fundamentalist...they are not even that observant. But these controls will increase fundamentalism and increase resentment.

Exactly, Muzzies are a factor that will divide a country...see how they want us Americans to adopt the Muzzie way of life, they are banning Halloween parties in schools, banning Christmas in schools and in retail and now call it Holiday time. Muzzies want to IMPOSE sharia law here in the USA. Muzzies have plans to exterminate Christians period!!!! Just check out how Christians are faring in Muzzlim majority countries...we are literally loosing our heads!!!!!

A few months ago a local Christian church was told that they would be inspected on thursday. The church told them it was inconvenient. A different day was arranged for the inspection. That doesn't sound much like 'control' to me. In the course of the next year I understand that the Chengdu government are building a multi demonination Christian church.

If you run a business you will have your premises inspected periodically. If you run a business you have to follow the law relating to that business. It is the same with places of worship. If your religion is a potentially a front for illegal activities then you can expect to be closely monitored. That applies in most civilised countries.
