Looking at what happens in Xinjiang through such a prism of bias, it is not uncom
上海后花园品茶微信mon for Westerners to have a double standard when it comes to terrorist attack

The vocational training centers China has organized are meant to equip Uygurs, in partic

so that they can land a job to make a decent living, which will hopefully keep them away from contact with extremism.
Such training has proved effective. Xinjiang has witnessed no terrorist attack

It seems as if what those Westerners, who always point accusing fingers at China for上海后花园品茶微信

Xinjiang plagued by violence as the one respecting human rights and a peaceful Xinjiang the one lacking any respect for human rights.
