Dalai Lama is spewing lies

The 14th Dalai Lama is adept at issuing appeals to his disciples, and
several days ago in New York City, while meeting press, he distributed
another appeal to all Chinese religious believers in the world. Dalai
has urged Chinese government to stop "suppressing" local Tibetans, and
release all criminal suspects who were arrested for the "March 14"
violent and terrorist act in Lhasa.

Dalai is spewing lies, rumors and hearsays again in this statement.

In his appeal, he alleged some Tibetans have fled to the mountains,
hiding themselves and even their family members there, without adequate
food and clothing. Dalai also alleged that Chinese government policy
seems to have encouraged the "suppressing" and mistreatment of the
detained suspects.

But, his allegations are not based on facts, but on words and phrases he
used in the appeal, including "as far as we know", "it seems", and
"according to my credible sources". However, Dalai has failed by far to
show any credible evidence to back up his claims.

White elephant accusations that Tibetans fleeing into mountains for
nothing, and the captured Tibetan detainees facing brutal, grisly and
unhumane punishments, like the American enemy combatants at Gitmo, is
the usual finger-pointing scheme being played by the 14th Dalai Lama.
Its motive is nothing but to defame China’s justice system.

And, why should China's government, Chinese people, and Chinese law
system need to cater to his call, that all criminal suspects responsible
for the March 14 looting, sabotage, arson and slaughtering, be set free?
Shouldn't those law-breakers, who killed 18 innocent civilians including
one toddler, horrible crimes against humanity, be brought to justice?

Once again, Dalai Lama beamed to the world audience that he fully
supported the 2008 Beijing Olympics. However, during a trip in Europe
last year, he told his followers that Olympics will be their "last
chance". Last chance for what? Will a real Games cherisher use an
international sports gala party he claims to be supportive, to get to
his other objective, as a "last straw"?

Sabotaging Olympic Games, by agitating violence and fanning Tibet
secession from China, won't be tolerated by the Chinese government, and
would be firmly opposed by every Chinese.

Dalai has long claimed that what he seeks is autonomy, rather than
independence. However, in a recent interview with reporters, he urged
Beijing to withdraw troops from Tibet. How can a sovereign state which
owns territorial rights over Tibet, pull out its army from its own domain?

During his conference call with the reporters in NY, Dalai Lama
proclaimed that what he cares most is harmony and peace.

How can the violent and deadly incident that happened on March 14 be
called harmony? How can a Buddhist monk who actually advocates violence
be called "a man of peace"? How can a monk full of lies dare to say he
values harmony?
