Good OP.

Excellent article on it here from the FT. Just google the title of you can’t get past the paywall.

“Crackdown in Xinjiang: Where have all the people gone?” https://www.ft.com/content/ac0ffb2e-8b36-11e8-b18d-0181731a0340
The West surrendered its leverage over human rights in China when Clinton and Blair helped them open up to trade with the West. When Blair came to power, the EU ended its annual vote to condemn China's human rights record, which was criticised by the Conservative party Opposition.

The Chinese are fighting Islamist fascists.

Asking the country who armed, trained and funded ISIS and then runs Guantanamo Bay is laughable.

As far as I know it's just re-education to wean them off jihadism.

I'd say conditions are more humane than Guantanamo

An excellent idea. The same should be done in Ireland - before we deport them back to where they came from.

The Chinese Communists are colonialists in Xinjiang, pure and simple. Their long-term aim is to swamp the locals with new arrivals and obliterate the indigenous culture. Please stop repeating the preposterous yarn of 're-educations camps' fighting jihadism. From start to finish this is a racist project of real consequence, as opposed to the hate speech and micro-aggressions that get us excited in the West these days. Violence, theft and fraud are at its heart.

So you approve of the destruction of religious liberty by the British in Ireland, by the Chinese in Tibet and now in this case.

If just 2 states in the US (Florida and Texas) turn socialist, not only will the Chinese win in China but their way of government will become the normal world wide. The present young Irish people could be the last to experience freedom for hundreds if not thousands of years. Sites like this will becoame a thing of the past

Not a single Muslim leader has protested to China ( that we know of )

If that was Israel....;)
The Koran does not advocate eliminating the Chinese.

However, with respect to Israel, there is that quote instructing the obedient to chase down every Jewish person on the world, until there is one left, and he is hiding behind a stone and the stone calls out to tell the obedient that there is a Jew hiding.

The problem for the Uigyers, is that the cult founder never figured that the cult would get as far as them. Therefore there was no need to instruct the obedient.

The ISIS Times is outraged.

Maybe with a bit of luck the PRC might take on The ISIS Times :)

Of course, the problem with that wish is that The ISIS Times would need to be significant. And they are not, as far as the PRC is concerned.
