More jihad in China. China is in the cross hairs, just as is any nation with a growing Muslim population. A massive terrorist attack was unleashed on the railway station in Southwestern China. Railways seem to be particularly desirable targets for Muslims — lots of families and women and children (think Volgograd, Russia last month).

Everywhere Muslim immigrate, conflict and violence follows. What do these Muslims want? The same thing they are slaughtering for in Nigeria, Thailand, the Philippines, Egypt, Israel, Egypt, Indonesia, the CAR, Kenya, Russia, et al — an Islamic state.

China is a target. China suffered its first major homicide attack, in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square in October, by jihadists in Xinjiang, home to the Muslim Uighur people.

Evidence at the crime scene showed that the Kunming Railway Station terrorist attack was orchestrated by Xinjiang separatist forces, the municipal government said Sunday.

At least 29 innocent people died, and more than 130 were injured in the attack as of 6:00 a.m. on Sunday, the local authorities said.

A group of knife-wielding people attacked the Kunming Railway Station in the capital of southwest China’s Yunnan Province at around 9 p.m. on Saturday.

Currently the investigation to the case is underway. Injured people have been rushed to hospital for emergency treatment. And according to Kunming railway bureau, train departures have not been affected.

The authorities vowed to crack down on violent terrorist activities in all forms and guarantee the safety of people’s lives and property.

BEIJING – China’s official Xinhua News Agency says authorities consider the attack by a group of assailants at a train station in southwestern China in which at least 27 people died to be an act of terrorism.

Xinhua did not identify who might have been responsible for the Saturday evening attack at the Kunming Railway Station in Yunnan province. But the news agency said authorities considered it to be “an organized, premeditated violent terrorist attack.”

Local television station K6 said that several of the attackers were shot by police and that victims were transported to local hospitals. Xinhua says 27 people were killed and 109 others injured.

The Communist Party-run People’s Daily reports that China’s top police official, Politburo member Meng Jianzhu, is en route to Kunming, an indication of how seriously authorities view the attack.
