China has created a dystopian hellscape in Xinjiang, Amnesty report says

June 11, 2021 — BBC.com reports: “The human rights organisation Amnesty International has said China is committing crimes against humanity in Xinjiang, the north-western region that is home to the Uyghurs and other Muslim minorities.

In a report published on Thursday, Amnesty called on the UN to investigate, saying China had subjected Uyghurs, Kazakhs, and other Muslims to mass detention, surveillance, and torture.

Agnès Callamard, the secretary general of Amnesty International, accused Chinese authorities of creating ‘a dystopian hellscape on a staggering scale’.

‘It should shock the conscience of humanity that massive numbers of people have been subjected to brainwashing, torture and other degrading treatment in internment camps, while millions more live in fear amid a vast surveillance apparatus,’ Ms Callamard said…”  (These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:  A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,  An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,  A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren– Proverbs 6:16-19 [emphasis mine].  Being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, Backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  Without understanding, covenantbreakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful:  Who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them – Romans 1:29-32.  These barbarians will soon …be cast into hell, into the fire that never shall be quenched:  Where their worm dieth not, and the fire is not quenched – Mark 9:43, 44.)

China officially joins Russia as a danger to NATO

June 15, 2021 — euobserver.com reports: “China has joined Russia as an explicit danger to Western allies after a NATO summit in Brussels on Monday (14 June).

‘China’s stated ambitions and assertive behaviour present systemic challenges to the rules-based international order and to areas relevant to alliance security,’ the 30 NATO leaders said in a joint communiqué.

‘China is rapidly expanding its nuclear arsenal with more warheads and a larger number of sophisticated delivery systems,’ the statement added.

‘It is also cooperating militarily with Russia, including through participation in Russian exercises in the Euro-Atlantic area,’ it said…”  (China will become a basic partner with Russia for the rapidly approaching battle of Armageddon – Revelation 16:16. Russia will lead invasion number one – Ezekiel 38 & 39. China will lead invasion number two – Revelation 16:12; Revelation 9:14 – 16. Then all nations will come against Jerusalem for the final invasion at which point Jesus will return to stop the bloodshed and set up his eternal kingdom upon earth – [He gathers] all nations against Jerusalem to battle; and the city shall be taken… Then shall the Lord go forth, and fight against those nations, as when he fought in the day of battle. And his feet shall stand in that day upon the mount of Olives, which is before Jerusalem on the east, and the mount of Olives shall cleave in the midst thereof toward the east and toward the west, and there shall be a very great valley; and half of the mountain shall remove toward the north, and half of it toward the south – Zechariah 14:2 – 4. Then Psalm 2:6 occurs as God the Father says: …I set my king upon my holy hill of Zion [Jerusalem].  See the next four reports)

China Refutes NATO Statement that it Poses ‘Systemic Challenges’ to International Community

June 16, 2021 — Voice of America News reports: “Beijing says NATO’s description that China poses ‘systemic challenges’ to the international community is an exaggeration.   
China’s mission to the European Union issued a statement Tuesday in response to a communique issued by the leaders of the trans-Atlantic alliance the day before.  In that statement, NATO leaders pledged to join forces against China’s increasingly aggressive military posture, which it said threatened ‘the rules-based international order.’
The mission said NATO’s accusations were ‘a slander on China’s peaceful development, a misjudgment of the international situation and its own role, and a continuation of the Cold War mentality and organizational political psychology.’
Tuesday’s statement is the second time in as many days that China has countered criticism from Western-based international alliances.  The Chinese embassy in London issued a statement Monday accusing the leaders of the G-7 of interfering in its internal affairs…”

China has repeatedly deployed warplanes and naval vessels near Taiwan over the last few years as part of a pressure campaign on the self-ruled island. Beijing sent 25 warplanes into Taiwan’s air defense identification zone back in April. 

A Chinese government spokesman said it carried out the mission in response to a statement issued at the end of the G-7 summit Sunday calling for a peaceful resolution to cross-Taiwan Strait tensions. The spokesman accused the G-7 leaders of interfering in China’s internal affairs…”
