Israel signed a statement presented to the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHCR) yesterday urging China to allow independent observers access to its western Xinjiang region, where UN experts say nearly a million Uyghurs and other minorities have been unlawfully detained in camps.

The decision, the first of its kind by Israel, came after pressure from US President Joe Biden's administration, Walla news reported.

The joint statement – backed by Australia, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain and the US – cited reports of torture or cruel, inhumane and degrading treatment or punishment, forced sterilisation, sexual and gender-based violence and forced separation of children from their parents.

Beijing denies all allegations of abuse of Uyghurs and describes the camps as vocational training facilities to combat religious extremism.

"Credible reports indicate that over a million people have been arbitrarily detained in Xinjiang and that there is widespread surveillance disproportionately targeting Uyghurs and members of other minorities and restrictions on fundamental freedoms and Uyghur culture," the joint statement said.

"We urge China to allow immediate, meaningful and unfettered access to Xinjiang for independent observers, including the High Commissioner," it added.

According to the Walla report, Foreign Minister Yair Lapid decided to accede to a request from the US State Department to back the measure, after a long debate in the Foreign Ministry about possible fallout from the move.

However, Israel, which views China as one of its most important trading partners, did not put out a public statement explaining its backing for the UNHCR call, in an apparent bid to keep a low profile and avoid angering Beijing.

Since 2017, China has carried out massive and systematic abuses against Muslims living in Xinjiang.

China's alleged erosion of religious, cultural and human rights for more than one million ethnic Uyghur Muslims in Xinjiang in the last decade has enraged western countries, prompting sanctions against Chinese officials and firms.

The pot calling the kettle black!
This is a classic example of Hypocrisy ?
However, on the contrary, just see this video to have a brief on the type of relations which Israel and China enjoy


Pakistan also refuses to recognize atrocities committed by China of its Muslim population. Is it not hypocrisy?

کینیڈا نے بھی ہاں میں ہاں ملائی ہو گی، جہاں یوریپین آبادکاروں کے ہاتھوں مارے گئے مقامی بچوں کی نامعلوم قبریں دریافت ہو رہی ہیں

جو ممالک چین کی مذمت کر رہے ہیں ان کے اپنے مفادات کی وجہ سے کر رہے ہیں. جو چپ بیٹھے ہیں وہ بھی مفادات کی وجہ سے خاموش ہیں

بالکل ہر ملک اپنے مفادات کا تحفظ کرتا ہے۔ انسانی حقوق کا کسی کو کوئی دل سے خیال نہیں ہے
ایسا بھی نہیں، افغانستان عراق لیبیا مصر شام میں انسانی حقوق کا کتنا خیال رکھا گیا. پاکستان، سعودیہ اور ایران کا کتنا خیال رکھا جاتا ہے

بہانہ انسانی حقوق ہی کا تھا. بھارت اور اسرائیل ہندو و یہودی ممالک ہیں لہذا وہاں انسانی حقوق کا کوئی مسئلہ نہیں ہے
جیسے چین میں مسلمانوں کے حقوق ایک بہانہ ہے۔

The hallmark of the contemporary propaganda is to employ contradictory punchlines in order to depict two situations holding semblance. To quote one, our martyrs are our enemies infidels and otherwise. It is every country’s embedded right to upend any potential uprising or insurgency with in its internationally recognized borders, but a war crime to spill over the same practice in to a territory which doesn’t belong to her. By the token of your argument, France committed “atrocities” at its indigenous Muslims when it usurped their right to dress as per their choice or barred them to worship as they desire, US did the same when she confined native Americans to reservations, Pakistan did so by launching Zarb E Azab, Iran did the same to it’s Sunni rebels, and the list goes on……
Like any other nation including US, what China does to ensure calm and stability with in its territory is none of any ones business, as is so with France, Pakistan, Iran or Saudia. The bitch with Israel is that they are trying to employ the same rationale in a territory which doesn’t belong to them, as per UN.
