From the use of the term “concentration camp” in the first instance to describe the vocational education and training centers in Northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region to parse reports rife with loopholes on topics of “forced labor,” “separating ethnic minors from parents,” and “forced sterilization,” the US and the West in general have elaborately woven a malicious narrative in a bid to ramp up a war against China, thoughtlessly bandying about claims of “genocide”- a heinous act entirely foreign to Chinese but altogether too familiar to Anglo-Saxons with a long legacy of genocide and extinction of races.

However hard the West and the US have tried to perfect their “genocide” narrative against China, they cannot find any legal basis in international laws, as genocide is a well-defined term in international laws and treaties. The most respected international tribunals have agreed that proof of the crime of genocide depends on an extremely convincing presentation of factual evidence, which the current “genocide” accusation against China sorely lacks, observers said. 

In recent months, more experts and scholars globally have stood up to criticize the US and the West for unfounded genocide accusations against China, pointing out how the misuse of the term for geopolitical agendas is tantamount to a direct insult to the true victims of genocide. 

Fabricating lies against China’s Xinjiang

The term genocide was first adopted by the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide by the UN and is well-defined in the UN Convention and international laws and treaties. But it loses a lot of its specific meaning when it becomes involved in politics, Graham Perry, a British solicitor and international arbitrator, told the Global Times. 

Five acts that are regarded as genocide include the killing of members of a group, causing serious bodily or mental harm, deliberately inflicting conditions of life calculated to bring about the physical destruction in whole or in part of the group, and imposing measures intended to prevent births, which is forced sterilization. The last is forcibly transferring children of one group to a different group. 

By reviewing reports on Xinjiang from Western and US media outlets, the Global Times has found that the accusation of “genocide” against Xinjiang did not miraculously appear, but rather followed calculated efforts dating back to 2017 with the goal of fitting said allegations within the parameters defined by the UN Convention. 

The first batch of “reports” to use “genocide” in their accusations against China on its Xinjiang policy appeared in January 2018 and has exploded since the beginning of 2020, Li Baiyang discovered, with the help of the GDELT news research tool.

Li is a member of the team conducting “Research on Basic Science Issues of National Security Management Decision-Making Systems” and a postdoctoral fellow at the Information Resources Research Center of Wuhan University.

On January 12, 2018, the Turkish Anadolu Agency reported that a Buddhist educator from Myanmar withdrew from a China-backed forum in London in protest of the “persecution” and “detention” of “1 million Muslims” in China’s Xinjiang region.

This report about the Myanmar educator got facts about Xinjiang wrong while using the inflammatory terms, but it had been quickly reposted by the World Uyghur Congress (WUC), a US-backed right-wing network seeking the “fall of China” as stated on its own website.

Since then, WUC has been engaged in pushing the term “genocide” to various media outlets and occasions and used it in releases on its website. For example, during a visit to Australia in December 2018, the leaders of the Uyghur Human Rights Project (UHRP), WUC’s main project funded by infamous US regime change foundation the National Endowment for Democracy (NED), said governments, businesses, academics, and think tanks were duty-bound to end their “business as usual” relations with China over the alleged “genocide.”
