The fact that so many of the 37 regimes which endorsed China’s genocide of Uyghur Muslims (along with Cuba, Syria, & Venezuela) are so-called ‘Muslim nations’ should finally lay to rest the notion that those nations are guided by Islam or by human rights. They are tyrannies which misuse Islam to justify their barbarities. They are regimes that do not reflect the commitments & aspirations of their citizens, Muslim, Christian, Jewish, Buddhist, or other, but only the vested interests of the oppressors. To associate those regimes with Islam is to play into the hands of the Islamophobic ‘war on terror’, the consequences of which we see in Assadism.
