At this point, it’s an open secret that China is putting its Muslim citizens in persecutory camps. The Chinese government, through ideology related to the state’s communist party, is forcing East-Asian Turkish Muslims to abandon their religion. If they maintain their faith, they face the threat of the Chinese state throwing them into these camps. While China has admitted that these camps exist, they insist they’re in a place to combat “Islamic extremism”. Yet, Islamic extremism seems to be present only to the extent that Chinese-Turkish Muslims are problems to the communist regime.

Also in China, the Hong Kong protests are showing no signs of cooling down. Asia as a continent is experiencing one of the highest concentrations of political protest and violence in history.

Activists have responded to claims of violence as “propaganda meant to scare people from taking to the streets.”. Hong Kong Legislator Claudia Mo echoed the opinion of activists, calling the intelligence “a joke”.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard: A Stepping Stone For China

@szewc_daniel | Korwinizm

In late June, the United States army was prepared to strike back at the Islamic Republic of Iran after the Revolutionary Guard shot down an American drone. Minutes before the American retaliation, President Trump is said to have decided against an attack, after learning that as many as 150 people would potentially die as a direct.

But this weekends firefight is a completely different story. Hezbollah – whether provoked or not – is being unquestionably aggressive toward Israel, the U.S.’s main ally in the area, one with considerable support for Donald Trump himself. The Iranian revolutionary guard, most likely at least partly responsible for coordinating the attack, is known for supporting organizations such as Hezbollah in Lebanon, as well as the PMF in Iraq.
