I did say in my defense that I’m fairly ignorant on the rise of Islam in China. This reader sets me straight:
Please don’t tell me you fell for the standard Communist propaganda on the Uighur people of “Xinjiang.”
Contrary to that pompous little e-mailer, the Uighurs are the most peaceful, liberal, and pro-American Muslims on earth. No one from the outside who has investigated the Communist claims of “jihadism” has ever found them. If Derb was “in town” he himself would have set that moron straight.
Sincerely (go ahead and use my name),
