Peaceful Chinese family man Fan Jinghui brutally slaughtered by Isis calls for discussion over why China should bomb targets in Syria and Iraq.
Fan was kidnapped, beaten severely and humiliated, with the words “CHINESE PRISONER FOR SALE” written below a photograph of poor Fan in the latest Isis propaganda magazine ‘Dabiq’. Fan was a high school teacher and taught children in Beijing, and later worked as a freelance advertising consultant. He was much loved by his students, colleagues and family. But despite this horrific violence which demands swift justice be brought upon the terrorist group, the Chinese government have covered up Fan’s death to avoid taking any further action. However, despite this non-interference foreign policy, steps must now be taken to repel this inevitable invasion into Chinese soil as Muslim extremists move further east into Afghanistan, causing much cause for concern throughout China.
For years Chinese citizens have been kidnapped and killed in Syria, Iraq, Egypt and Pakistan, among other places. But now attacks are becoming more frequent in China itself, with Xinjiang being a primary target and the 2013 Tiananmen Square terror attack with a car which was set ablaze and driven into a crowd of tourists. Another twenty-nine commuters were massacred last year and 130 maimed with knifes at a train station in Kunming. How long will the Chinese government continue to sit back and do nothing while its citizens are being massacred?
