This should be good; get the popcorn. The world’s most brutal, terrorist movement meets the world’s biggest communist dictatorship—think 1984 vs Lord of the Flies. The Islamic State recently targeted Communist China by threatening to foster what it says is an Islamic rebellion in its midst. For its part, China seems to be worried.

The threat was transmitted by a video released from the Islamic terrorist army. The screen shows ethnic Uighur fighters being trained in the Middle East and is interspersed with scenes of their homeland in the Xinjiang province of China. The fighter in the video threatens the Middle Kingdom, promising “blood in the streets” and then executes a supposed informant.

“Oh, you Chinese who do not understand what people say! We are the soldiers of the Caliphate, and we will come to you to clarify to you with the tongues of our weapons, to shed blood like rivers and avenging the oppressed,” reports The Independent.

Hundreds of people have been killed in the minority Uighur fighter’s territory, fighting with ethnic Chinese, in recent years. China is fighting an Islamic rebellion in the area with a group that wants to establish a new country called East Turkestan.

For its part, China has issued an immediate call for cooperation in fighting this Islamic threat.
