Thanks. Like I said I don't believe the lurid versions being spread about Xinjiang over here, and wouldn't say this stuff about china in a less 'nuanced'/more public place as it can only help our current china=bad bullshit (and the seeming next war) - but this context aside, I'm basing my view of china's policy on their own words, relayed in the video below (accurate as far as I know - he's usually pretty reliable and gives sources - I've posted this before) - he doesn't go with the genocide story either, but the quotes he gives seem very familiar to me from hearing right wing attitudes to muslims over here (I can't remember the exact quotes or where they are in the vid). Maybe they weren't representative quotes or the attitude has changed, so I'm open to changing my opinion as always.
