寻雪避郭外




寻雪避郭外,
疲惫若孤山;
凛冬无辞色,
惟立天地间!
古今慷慨士,
僵躯履薄冰;
溟色辨大道,
星辰耀西方。

印度尼西亚的唐·吉诃德



文/安然

我仿佛看见你:
噢,那来自安达卢西亚的启示
穿过骚动的人群——
世界底部最沉默的环形岩层
被唤醒,
要在这黑铁的时代
争取金子的尊严。

当黑夜戴着谎言的王冠,
匿藏起房间内的大象。
神圣的骑士啊,你是穹顶和塔楼之间
一缕绿光,
一声轻如鸽鸣的反驳。
白茉莉将为你打造纯银的盔甲,
蝴蝶兰飞向海面,
成为你缤纷的坐骑。

雨水冲刷不掉
你昨日写下的坚毅,
阳光只加深了你
公牛般的肤色。
那瘦削的身影啊,像利剑出鞘
对北方的巨人说不:
归还杜尔西内亚的美丽,
归还维吾尔的自由!


Indonesian Don Quixote

By An Ran

I seemed to see you:
O, a revelation from Andalusia
Went through the masses of people—
The most silent lithosphere in the bottom of the world
Was woken up,
To fight for the dignity of the gold
In this black iron times.

When the darkness wearing a crown of lies
Covered the elephant in the room,
The holy knight, you were a flash of green light,
A rebuttal that was like the pigeon singing
Between the dome and tower.
White Jasmine would make the silver armor for you,
Phalaenopsis would fly to the sky
And became your colorful mounts.

The rain couldn’t wash
Your perseverance that was written in the face yesterday,
Sunlight only deepened your colour of skin like bull.
O, that thin figure is like a sword
Saying no to that northern giant:
Free the beauty of Dulcinea,
Free Uyghur!

Export Islamophobia made in China



By Cui Haoxin

I wondered at the high survivability of this video when it reappeared on Twitter. Three years ago, it ever provoked a wave of anti-muslim on Chinese social networks.
The video named ‘Lovely girl from Gansu reciting the Koran’ dates from 2014. It had been unknown to the public for two years. This video went viral online in 2016 because of special political cause. 2016 is the key year to both Hui Muslim and Chinese modern history. At that year, the national religions work conference was held by Chinese communists in April. A month later, Chinese anti-muslim activists suddenly launched a massive attack against Hui Muslim with this video and alleged that Northwest China faced serious Islamization. Hui Muslim is previously a secret  like this video. Chinese Communists forbade the people to discuss the sensitive ‘ethnic issues’ for the long term. Hui Muslim also kept a low profile. Though Hui has the most Muslim population in China, Hui Muslim is still familiar stranger to Chinese. The common Chinese even is too difficult to distinguish Hui Muslim from Uyghur. When Chinese Communists leader suddenly opened up the Pandora box, all kinds of misunderstandings and bias against minorities flooded online. The results was so when Chinese anti-muslim activists who almost arose overnight began to attack this video on Weibo, a kind of Chinese microblog like Twitter. And they reported it to the authorities.
Facing this noisy political attack, a few insightful persons reminded the cultural revolution forty years ago. The story also expanded according to old history script: children are forbidden into mosque, ‘illegal’ religious books are banned, Arabic signs are wiped off and mosques are destroyed. But Hui Muslims were poorly prepared for it including me then. Horrified, Chinese Muslims began to defend their religious freedom rights and called on ‘ethnic solidarity'. But it’s useless and we didn’t know the scenes in politics and old political correctness was abandoned.
Someone's Weibo accounts were deleted and someone disappeared in the normal life.
Hui Muslims slowly became voiceless online. Our history and reality images are totally demonized. As karl Marx said: ‘They cannot represent themselves; they must be represented.’ It’s still our fate.
In 2016, a large-scale crackdown against Hui Muslim unfolded. That small video is a trigger.
The story behind seems to not be worthy of telling. No surprise. Gansu province’s department of education quickly responded to the complaint of anti-muslim activist and condemned religion activities is ‘harmful to youth’s physical and mental health'.
When an AFP journalist discovered this video from an Indonesian anti-American militant and informed me on Twitter, I just knew some pro-china Indonesians are attacking Uyghurs with this old video about Hui Muslim. Too ridiculous! The old trick is back. Islamophobia made in China is exported to the global.

Hui Muslims successfully prevented the authorities to demolish a mosque.



I don’t know who edited this touching video but I almost saw all the clips. It happened in Chuxiong city, Yunnan province in Nov 20, 2019. Local Hui Muslims successfully prevented the authorities to demolish a mosque. It’s wonder. Because Chinese authorities think compromise with the people is their failure. And the majority also used to surrender. Even if in Hui Muslims, the resisters are still minority.
“But a man is not made for defeat. A man can be destroyed but not defeated”, said Hemingway.
