外文标题：300 Chinese fighting for ISIS in Mideast
About 300 Chinese people are fighting alongside the ISIS in Iraq and Syria, a Chinese state-run newspaper said on Monday, a rare tally that is likely to fuel worry in China that militants pose a threat to security. China has expressed concern about the rise of ISIS in the Middle East, nervous about the effect it could have on its Xinjiang region. But it has also shown no sign of wanting to join US efforts to use military force against the group.
Chinese members of the East Turkestan Islamic Movement are travelling to Syria via Turkey to join the ISIS, the Global Times, a tabloid run by China's ruling Communist Party's official newspaper, the People's Daily, said.
"According to information from sources, including security officers from Iraq's Kurdish region, Syria and Lebanon, around 300 Chinese extremists are fighting with IS in Iraq and Syria," the Global Times reported.

The Chinese *t must be thanking their stars and praying that these people never return.

These people are separatists and have every intention of returning to China to fight for an independent nation. The only reason they are fighting alongside ISIS is to acquire the combat and other skills needed to continue their struggle with China.

I think we have all failed to understand China. I am pretty sure that 95% of the chinese are not even aware that 300 Chinese Muslims are fighting in ISIS. Not because they are ignorant, but just because they dont think its required to know that. The majority that is over 90% of the Han are pretty happy under the Chinese. The Chinese make sure that minorities know that China does not need minorities, but minorities need China. The Chinese will simply exterminate these jihadis
