Islamic Party Threatens Beijing Olympic Games

From ABC news
A terrorist group based in western China threatens to attack the upcoming Beijing Olympics, and claims responsibility for last week's deadly bus bombings in China in a new propaganda video released July 25.

The Turkistan Islamic Party video, entitled "Our Blessed Jihad in Yunnan," warns spectators and athletes, "particularly the Muslims," not to attend the Beijing Games, which are scheduled to begin in two weeks on Aug. 8.

"Our aim is to target the most critical points related to the Olympics. We will try to attack Chinese central cities severely using the tactics that have never been employed," the group's leader, Commander Seyfullah said, according to a translation of the video provided by IntelCenter, a Washington, D.C.-based firm that monitors terrorism.

The Turkistan Islamic Party is fighting to gain autonomy for the native Muslim population in the Xinjiang Province of China, which shares a border with Pakistan and Afghanistan. The group has been linked to al Qaeda and has been monitored by U.S. and foreign intelligence agencies.

"Despite the Turkistan Islamic Party's repeated warnings to China and international community about stopping the 29th Olympics in Beijing, the Chinese have haughtily ignored our warnings. The Turkistan Islamic Party volunteers who had gone through special preparation have started urgent actions." Seyfullah said, according to the IntelCenter translation.


Seyfullah, with a raised voice and breathing heavily, claims responsibility for the bombing of three public buses in Yunnan on July 21, and the bombing of a plastic factory in Guangzhou on July 17.

The bus explosions killed at least two people and injured 14 in the southwestern city of Kunming in Yunnan Province.

The official Xinhua news agency of China said it was seeking to find out who was responsible for the attacks.

Seyfullah said the group bombed two public buses in Shanghai on May 5 and "took action against police" in Wenzhou on July 17 with a tractor loaded with explosives.

At the top of the video a sign for the Beijing Olympic Games is engulfed in flames. The video continues with still photos of the aftermath of the bus bombings in China.

The bulk of the video shows Seyfullah speaking, wearing a white cloth to cover his face. Two militants wearing black ski masks and holding rifles stand behind him.


"The Turkistan Islamic Party warns China one more time," Seyfullah said according to the IntelCenter transcript.

The warning comes two weeks before the start of the Beijing Games on August 8.

The video is about three and a half minutes in length, and resembles al Qaeda propaganda videos in structure.

  • It's sad that the people who will suffer the most from terror are innocent civilians, from whatever country they are. And to think, the Chinese have brutalized their Tibetans, their peaceful Falun Gong adherents, and anyone else who has protested peacefully. What's next, no one knows.

    • i have a different opinion here. i have lived in beijing several years, and i also travelled in the Xinjiang (muslim area) in northwestern China. i experienced the air pollution, traffic jam, the poor people wandering in the city. but i love there and those nice people. i also experienced Falun Gong, who put propaganda brochure that claims their great master is the greatest god of the universe, and the earthquake in May 2008 was a karma deserved by those who supported communist government. I do More..

    • I'm not sure what you mean saying 'I have a different opinion," as I inferred that I sympathize with innocent civilians who may be harmed by terrorist actions. As far as Falun Gong adherents, these people are all over the world, protesting peacefully or doing their metaphysical thing. I don't particularly what people believe in. I care what they do or support, like terrorists.
      I won't say how many times I have visited China in recent years or what cities, or how many regular people I have More..

  • Islam, the religion of peace.

    I was living in Germany during the Munich Olympics. The feeling of helplessness against terror was overwhelming.

    I'm glad the Israelis killed all the perps connected to the atrocity. If you think the Jews are bad, if something happens in China, hang on to your hat.

  • No warm milk and fresh linen for suspected jihadists in China. No media pulling for you, no ACLU lawyers.
    Just pissed off Communist Chinamen who do not like being fucked with. They take a page outta the Islamic playbook in China. You kill and terrorize the rulers and you and your whole bloodline will be removed from the pool. They will kill you and everyone you're related. The Geneva convention or the liberals will be able to stop it.

  • Contrary to what most of you people are saying, the Chinese will suffer heavy consequences if they face Islam. The Chinese for many decades were used to mistreating weak people in Tibet and weak followers of Falun Gong. But they were never used to fighting a group of people who arent afraid of ANYTHING, and I assure you that the Muslims in Western China are in no way similar to Tibetan or Falun Gong standards. They will rampage and destroy China if the Chinese government intimidates them. Furthe More..
