    How I see it is the various impacts and influence on world affairs;

    1800s - The British Century
    1900s - The American Century
    2000s - The Chinese Century

    and in the future, if we have one?

    This is happening everywhere, thanks to China's Belt and Road Initiative. In short - they lend money to impoverished countries, and then when they invariably can't pay it back, they claim land instead.

    The country of China isn't great. What they're doing to other countries is equally bad, if not worse.
    Agree. They inflate industry too. Initially buying huge amounts of produce, encourages the source (country) to invest heavily in infrastructure and become over confident, then essentially crash an industry by stopping imports. It's lucky New Zealand's primary exports are food. And brains.

    There's a reason the Chinese are so keen to buy our farms and forests and milk companies.

    So..per below we have China taking steps to try stamp out Islam following 911/ISIS and the 2009 Muslim lead riots in China. Meanwhile the USA herding those seeking asylum in the US into camps. They are both bad.

    China government reasoning “helping to stamp out "extremism" and give people new skills" following the 2009 riots where Members of the Muslim Uighur ethnic minority attacked Han Chinese, who then rampaged through Uighur areas killing almost 200

    Whats happening: Increasing official hostility towards Muslims in China, where religious activities remain tightly controlled by the government.

    Meanwhile in the USA

    Donald Trump earns place in history with how America treats migrant children – At a detention center, kids have gone hungry and without beds. They've seen outbreaks of scabies, shingles and chickenpox. For those watching, this is what a national disgrace looks like

    "US customs and border patrol agents at a migrant processing center in Texas allegedly attempted to humiliate a Honduran migrant by making him hold a sign that read, "I like men," according to emails written by an agent who witnessed the incident."

    "As Mariee became ill, first with a weeks-long cough, then a persistent fever, Juárez alleged that doctors refused to examine Mariee’s lungs more closely. She said she would wait in a line morning after morning for an appointment, only to be given Tylenol, Pedialyte and Vicks VapoRub, the latter which Juárez later found out isn’t safe to give to children younger than 2 years old.

    She recalled how hot her daughter’s little body and head felt. One night, she said, the toddler wouldn’t wake up when her mother roused her for dinner. Still, Juárez wasn’t given an appointment for Mariee; she told New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez that at one point, her toddler was given a popsicle, with her mother told that it would help with the fever."

    "A 16-year-old Guatemalan boy held in Yuma, Arizona, said he and others in his cell complained about the taste of the water and the food they were given. The Customs and Border Protection agents took the mats out of their cell in retaliation, forcing them tosleep on hard concrete.

    A 15-year-old girl from Honduras described a large, bearded officer putting his hands inside her bra, pulling down her underwear and groping her as part of what was meant to be a routine pat-down in front of other immigrants and officers.

    The girl said "she felt embarrassed as the officer was speaking in English to other officers and laughing" during the entire process, according to a report of her account."

    Children said they were given as many as 18 pills a day and often were not told what the medication was for...If the children refused the medications they would be punished or physically forced to take them, according to the lawsuit.

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ren/723476002/

    Julio, a boy who was held at the Shiloh Treatment Center in Texas, which specializes in treating kids with behavioral or emotional problems, said he saw staff members hold another child down, pry his mouth open and force pills into his mouth. Julio said he was told that the only way to be released from the facility was to take the medication. Julio also said he was handcuffed, locked in a cell and pepper sprayed by staff members at Shiloh.

    "Sometimes they give me forced injections," a girl named Rosa was quoted as saying in the lawsuit. "One or two staff members hold my arms and the nurse gives me an injection."

    The Center for Human Rights and Constitutional Law said without proper oversight, there was a risk that the medications could be used as "chemical straight-jackets."

    https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/...ren/723476002/

    But many of the allegations in the filing date back to unaccompanied minors who crossed the southern border during the Obama administration, long before immigration officials began systematically separating migrant families.

    Lets say you are the President of China.

    How do you deal with a religion that calls for violence and spreads division?

    Jihad is an Islamic term referring to the religious duty of Muslims to maintain the religion. The word jihad appears frequently in the Quran. Jihad means to war against non-Muslims, and is etymologically derived from the word mujahada signifying warfare to establish the religion.

    I'm not saying China chose the right path here, but I do think its a complex situation without an easy solution.

    If the source material is that big an issue then don't be stopping at Islam.

    Islam calls for violence no more than Christianity does, by your logic we should be rounding up Christians to put in concentration camps.

    Also, Jihad means struggle. It can be a jihad to get out of bed in the morning. You literally have no ****ing clue what you're talking about,
