Translator’s Note: I have translated this article into English from a very recent news story on the Chinese language internet. Social media in the West are reporting this story with varying degrees of accuracy, poor translation, and ‘out of context’ reporting. Many are stating that China is ‘threatening’ the peace of the world by condemning IS and showing concern for the death of Mr Fan Jinghui. This is the usual misrepresentation of China in the Western press that is partly racist and partly anti-Communist in origination. Xi Xinping is the President of the People’s Republic of China (PRC) – which means that he holds the post of General Secretary of the Communist Party of China. The accompanying photograph is apparently from an IS online propaganda magazine (Dabiq) which appears to be written in English despite the fact that the two victims do not speak English (as a first language). It is odd as logic dictates that the average IS (i.e. ISIS) member also does not speak English. The photographs ‘look’ very Western in both their design and intent. RIP. ACW 20.11.15
The Ritual Respect Network has gained information from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website that that the terrorist groups Islamic State (IS) kidnapped and then brutally murdered the Chinese citizen Fan Jinghui (樊京辉) along with a Norwegian national. We express our deepest regret and concern for the deaths of the two victims, as well as send our deepest condolences to the families of the victims concerned. When it first became clear that Fan Jinghui had been kidnapped by Islamic State, the Government of China was concerned for his safety initiated a rescue plan. However, terrorist organisations do not operate from a position of humane wisdom, are not concerned about the welfare of humanity, and disregard all virtuous actions in the world. This ignorance relies solely upon the committing of highly brutal acts (to achieve their objectives). The Government of China strongly condemns these atrocities and states that it is a certainty that these criminals will be eventually brought to justice. Terrorism is the common enemy of humanity and the Government of China strongly condemns all its forms. Terrorist criminals represent the lowest strata of human existence as they propagate fear through violence. The Government of China intends to strengthen anti-terrorist co-operation with the International Community and thus ensure the maintenance of peace and tranquillity in the world.
President Xi Xinping strongly condemned the killing of the Chinese citizen.
The Ritual Respect Network reporter Wu Xiaoqin (吴小芹) attended the 23rd Asian Pacific Economic Corporation (APEC) meeting in Manila (the Philippines) on the 19.11.15 where President Xi Xinping announced that the terrorist organisation known as Islamic State (IS) had murdered a Chinese citizen. He stated that violent crime cannot be allowed to dictate in the world, and that China condemns these brutal acts and opposes all terrorist movements. He continued that China will take resolute action to confront any terrorist group which intends to destroy peace and harmony in the world.
