Holocaust Day... Uyghur ... Palestinian
Its been decided on Holocaust Day 27 January it will be used to highlight the plight of the Chinese Uyghur Muslims.

Where they will urge Elected officials and MPs around the world to take a moral stand against the treatment of Uyghur community by China

This is only the second time Jewish News has published a special front page in addition to the weekly newspaper – but few issues could warrant it or be more urgent than the human rights atrocities currently taking place against Uyghur Muslims under the world’s nose.

Reports and testimony mounts of mass incarcerations of one million people, of forced labour and sterilisation, of assaults on religious buildings and culture.

Stephen Smith, who heads Steven Spielberg’s Shoah Foundation and serves as UNESCO chair on genocide education, is in no doubt we are witnessing genocide.

Article II of the Genocide Convention includes “deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part… imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group… forcibly transferring children of the group to another group”.


Whilst I support this effort, I have to ask why they don't do the same, for something closer to home and something they have greater influence over???? The stolen lands through illegal Settlements, extrajudicial killings , use of collective punishment by bulldozing houses of families of the convicted , population control , illegal detentions, illegal use banned weapons of war etc on par with Chinese.... but don't seem to warrant the same Highlighting and calls for it to stop .... In Palestine and the Christian/Muslim community by the Israeli Govt ....
