Everything has changed. We are in Cold War II. Read this full piece. It will leave little doubt in your mind. You will understand why I announced an ideological war (jihad ??????) on the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) a few days ago (https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/china-now-our-biggest-military-threat-says-us-3xrdlbd0p)

Allow me to clarify immediately that the great people of China & what is left of their ancient culture are the first victims of the CCP’s state totalitarianism. They live in a Black-Mirror style monitored “social credit” system that captures them in a nightmarish tech-spy state.

To further his domestic power, former President Xi has declared himself ruler for life (like an emperor) & cracked down on minorities with a brute power the likes of which has not been seen since Hitler. Xi Jinping has told his people to prepare for war (https://www.indiatoday.in/news-analysis/story/xi-jinping-tells-chinese-military-to-prepare-for-war-is-it-against-india-us-or-taiwan-1682384-2020-05-27)

So how is the CCP fighting this Cold War? And what can we do about it? 

Let’s start with genocide.

The CCP currently interns 1-2m of our Turkmen Uighur Muslim brethren in concentration camps. Uighurs now seek genocide charges against Beijing at the ICC (https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/uighurs-seek-genocide-charges-against-beijing-cq6hdrjcc

The CCP’s genocide of our Uighur Muslim brethren feeds on our lust for low price consumerism & corporate greed. Our lifestyles were unsustainable. As always unsustainable lifestyles rely on slave Labour, while they harvest their hair and organs (https://edition.cnn.com/2020/07/02/us/china-hair-uyghur-cpb-trnd/index.html)

Not content with enslaving our Uighur Muslim brethren, the CCP is accused by survivors to be using forced sterilisation against Uigur Muslim women for targeted ethnic population control (https://jamestown.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/06/Zenz-Sterilizations-IUDs-and-Mandatory-Birth-Control-FINAL-27June.pdf?x61565)

And to further humiliate, replace & obliterate Uighur Muslims, the CCP is accused of raping Muslim wives at home, as their husbands languish indefinitely in the concentration camps (https://www.businessinsider.com/china-uighur-monitor-home-shared-bed-report-2019-11?r=US&IR=T)

10 years ago we at Quilliam warned of unfolding atrocities by the CCP against Uighur Muslims of East Turkestan, when we hosted Dr Enver Tohti, Chairman of Uighur Association & UK representative for The World Uighur Congress (https://www.quilliaminternational.com/quilliam-roundtable-the-uighurs-chinas-forgotten-muslims/

For me this is personal. I have been a War On Terror Prisoner of Conscience who witnessed torture in Egypt. I grew up acutely aware as a teenager of our failures in the Bosnia genocide. It changed me forever. The CCP has lit a fire in me I have not felt since I was a teenager.

It is genocidal reports like above that have shaken me out of my lower-self. I am at ideological war (jihad). I dedicate this Jihad ?? ???? ??? to my brave Uighur Muslims in East Turkestan, to my Tibetan Buddhist monks & to our Chinese Christian brethren (https://www.lbc.co.uk/radio/presenters/maajid-nawaz/chinese-security-laws-hong-kong-uighur-muslims-genocide/)

Moving to #IStandWithHongKong the People’s Republic of China’s (PRC) has introduced a Security law so strict that it criminalises any criticism of the PRC’s annexation of Hong Kong anywhere in the world, with a punishment of life in jail (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-asia-china-53244862)

As for Taiwan, the PRC has threatened war against anyone who opposes their planned invasion, and annexation of that sovereign nation & ally (https://t.co/awkClnCvqk?amp=1)

But while we all lived obliviously BC (Before Corona) the CCP moved globally to a pre-colonial stage not seen since the East India Company & British Raj. I explain how they came to dominate global supply chains through the Belt & Road initiative here (https://unherd.com/2020/04/china-is-preparing-for-war/)
The original Cold War was a nuclear arms race, this one is a race for data supremacy, to attain Quantum Advantage. Such is the scale of military AI advantage attained through Quantum Supremacy that there is little room for neutrality in this Cold War II (https://unherd.com/2020/06/we-will-have-to-take-a-side-in-cold-war-ii/)

Currently, the CCP is catching up in this Quantum arms race, but the US, UK & allies are still stronger & can recover. How our leaders were so asleep at the wheel while the CCP blindsided us, though, may be in part due to the CCP policy of cyber hacks & political blackmail.

The FBI head said today: “... the FBI is now opening a new China-related counterintelligence case every 10 hours... of the nearly 5,000 active counterintelligence cases currently under way across the country, almost half are related to China” (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-53329755)

Tik Tok is compromised. The Chinese Communist Party has been spying on all of us all along.

It may soon be revealed that they had so many of us by the balls. No wonder we so easily capitulated. 

Not me. Not today. Not ever (https://www.forbes.com/sites/zakdoffman/2020/06/26/warning-apple-suddenly-catches-tiktok-secretly-spying-on-millions-of-iphone-users/)

Tik Tok captures whatever is in your “Clipboard” every 1 to 3 seconds. (And sends that information probably to the CCP somewhere.)

How often do you copy & paste your password or credit card number into a website or application? This is serious. And it’s not just with Tik Tok.

Our ally India has already banned TikTok (Chinese app revealed to have been snooping on our user data). 

As has the USA, for government-issue phones

Should HMG also follow suit? (https://edition.cnn.com/2020/07/08/tech/instagram-reels-india-tiktok-ban/index.html)

But it’s not just Tik Tok. “Huawei (is) a means of “signals intelligence”, similar to..UK’s GCHQ or US Nat. Security Agency (NSA). “no question..info..has ultimately ended up in (China’s) hands..we’re sure” This, by Google CEO Eric Schmidt, now on the Pentagon's Defence Review, is incredibly significant (https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/no-question-huawei-sent-data-to-china-says-ex-google-chief-eric-schmidt-2k20rf7sp)

It is abundantly clear to me that the CCP has been using tech business & all other relations with us such as journalism as an opportunity to spy, steal our IP, plunder our talent & corrupt our political & moral culture (https://www.nytimes.com/2020/03/26/us/politics/coronavirus-china-spies.html)

Could this explain why we in the UK allowed the CCP to walk all over us. Were we compromised? Or was our corporate greed & disdain for our children’s future that strong? Either way, large parts of our political & cultural establishment appear to have been captured by CCP designs.

See how far the rot has spread: sir Andrew Cahn, ex-civil servant & board member of Huawei introduced Mr George Osborne & described him as “godfather” of China/UK relations (https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/now-george-osborne-is-linked-to-pro-china-48-group-club-according-to-hidden-hand-9x6k0zslw)

So why is Remain campaign head & Dep PM Clegg’s election guru Ryan Coetzee doing PR for the CCP? They persecute Buddhist & Christian minorities while 1-2m Uighurs are in organ harvesting concentration camps. Shame on you reputation laundering for the CCP (https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jul/07/uk-remain-campaign-strategist-to-head-hong-kong-pr-push)

Is this perhaps why we were so readily happy to sign over British (Tata) Steel? (https://www.theguardian.com/business/2020/mar/09/british-steel-bought-by-china-jingye-saving-more-than-3000-jobs)

Or perhaps why we gave them a share of ownership in the future of our nuclear power (which is finally under review!)? (https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/chinese-involvement-in-uk-nuclear-power-may-be-reviewed-alok-sharma-hints-kb9lggh6v)

Because certainly “capture” of our elite by the CCP is precisely what ex-Mi6 man Christopher Steel (of Trump dossier fame) is alleging in a new report called... yep:

“China’s Elite Capture” (https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/former-diplomat-charles-parton-worked-on-chinas-dirty-tricks-dossier-hskfqplpn)

WHAT TO DO?

We must regain our soft & hard power influence in global institutions. This is bigger than party politics. 

Boris Johnson backs Liam Fox to lead World Trade Organisation (https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/boris-johnson-backs-liam-fox-to-lead-world-trade-organisation-66chvwq9m)

Now that a decision has been made to redirect our International Development funds, we should use some of these funds to shore up our military & military humanitarian relief response abilities (https://www.savetheroyalnavy.org/why-a-portion-uk-overseas-aid-money-should-be-given-to-the-armed-forces/)

Defend our values: 

Russian whistle blower Magnitsky was clubbed to death in Moscow for exposing rank financial corruption at the Kremlin

With this law we both honour this martyr’s memory & send a warning to all other despots: we are now wide awake: (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-53303100)

This is it. Shots fired. The UK imposes its own sanctions on world’s human rights abusers for the first time, through Magnitsky Act. 

We shall never again allow UK to become a haven for the world’s emperors, tyrants & gangsters

My new union is The 5 Eyes.

The advent of the printing press facilitated:

i) the Reformation
ii) 150 yrs conflict
iii) then Enlightenment

Just like the internet facilitated:
i) a Global Conversation
ii) renewed world conflict, online & off
iii) from which similarly I believe a ReEnlightenment can emerge. 

I believe we can win this Cold War II. But the West must find her Spartans. Buddhists, find your Shaolin monks. Christians, your Warrior Preists. Muslims, your Mujahideen. 

My dear Western political & cultural elite, if a Roman soldier returned from a brutal war were to happen upon senators &philosophers of his city lost in a slumber of lust, greed, corruption & ignorance, he would be doing as this outsider does now: 

A genocide is being prepared in China. WARNING: Cold War II is upon us. Emporor Xi has instructed his nation to prepare for war. We must hope for the best, but prepare for the worst.
