Uighur Jihadists Confirm They Were Behind Tienanmen Square Attack

They've just confirmed what we've known all along:

A video posted online by the Turkestan Islamic Party showed the organisation's leader Abdullah Mansour speaking in Uighur, said the Washington-based SITE Intelligence Group, which monitors jihadist forums.

In an eight-minute message, Mansour, his face obscured, described whose who carried out the attack as "mujahideen", SITE said. He warned that Uighur fighters would target the Great Hall of the People on Tiananmen Square, where the ruling Communist Party holds its meetings.

Mansour was quoted as saying: "Chinese unbelievers, know that you have been fooling East Turkestan for the last 60 years, but now they have awakened.

"The people have learned who is the real enemy and they returned to their own religion. They learned the lesson."

Why do I have a feeling that these people are about to learn a lesson of their own?
