世維會發表聲明譴責阿蓋德組織(Al Qaeda 基地組織)

雖然與熱比婭(Rebiya Kadeer)並非深交﹐只因為工作上的關係與她結識﹐不過也可以很勉強地說﹐我是她在首都華盛頓這個圈子內少有認識的漢人。


我認為基地恐怖組織(又譯作阿蓋達組織)可能受到某方面指使﹐企圖借這個機會乘機抽水﹐或企圖離間世界維吾爾人代表大會(World Uyghur Congress, WUC)與自由世界之間的關係﹐讓中共有機可乘。不過好彩世維會終於在7月14日下午發出聲明﹐譴責阿蓋達組織﹐以正視聽。

UAA and WUC condemn Al Qaeda statement
For immediate release

Contact: Uyghur American Association +1 (202) 349 1496

The Uyghur American Association (UAA) and the World Uyghur Congress (WUC) are extremely disturbed by reports that the North African wing of Al Qaeda has threatened to attack Chinese workers in Africa in revenge for the deaths of Uyghurs in East Turkestan. UAA and WUC are absolutely opposed to all forms of violence, and condemn the reported statement of Al Qaeda.

“I abhor violence,”said Uyghur democracy leader Rebiya Kadeer. “I do not believe violence is a solution to any problem. Global terrorists should not take advantage of the Uyghur people's legitimate aspirations and the current tragedy in East Turkestan to commit acts of terrorism targeting Chinese diplomatic missions or civilians.”

Terrorist groups such as Al Qaeda do not represent the peaceful aspirations of the Uyghur people. UAA and WUC, together with Uyghurs in East Turkestan and throughout the world, seek to peacefully advocate for Uyghursó basic human rights, including freedom of belief, freedom of expression, and equal access to employment and healthcare. UAA and WUC seek the right of self-determination for Uyghurs.

Uyghurs practice a moderate form of Sufi Islam and lead predominantly secular lives. Much like Tibetans, Uyghurs in East Turkestan have struggled for cultural survival in the face of a government-supported influx of Chinese migrants, as well as harsh repression of political dissent and any expression of their distinct identity, however lawful or peaceful.
