Disunited Russia party? Moscow’s elections

Update: 2019-09-063

Description

This weekend’s vote will fill some fairly inconsequential city positions. But how it plays out will indicate the strength of a rapidly broadening, national movement against the ruling United Russia party. China has long been repressing the Muslim-minority Uighurs; worryingly, it’s now starting to squeeze the Huis, more dispersed followers of Islam. And, a well-intentioned anti-knife-crime push in Britain draws ire after targeting fried-chicken shops.

If I was devil's advocate for Chinese policy I might start by suggesting that this sounds like the implementation of universal basic education combined with an attempt to suppress Moslem radicalization. The American policy in this situation would probably be to allow religious freedom with the recognition that the kingdom of God is subjective, not earthly. We teach national culture to our provincials, too. It's called social studies (U.S. History, civics, etc.)

Did he say "knife" "knife crime"? What is this about? Why are we talking about chicken shops, indeed? Are listeners "affected" or "effected"?

You didn't show the whole truth~the mosque was dismantled in Ningxia because it didn't get the certificate of construction approval and land usage approval. The cosmetic is just a small part of the problem. If you dont have the certificate at the very beginning, it will be normal to see the building disappear.
