It is important that all Chinese of Han origins should take note that world’s personalities appointed by Western dominated societies speak only for values that are promoted by the West. What values? Yes, it is all about benchmarking using Western human standards again.
It is of no surprise that we have a persistent (listed as one of the persons that Chinese people dislike) anti-China Bishop from South Africa (Desmond Tutu) who criticize China for “verbally abusing” the Tibetan spiritual leader. The news obviously came out of a Human Rights website.
The aged South African religious leader said he was concerned with the deterioration of the human rights situation in Tibet, and an apparent breakdown in communication between the Chinese government and Tibetan representatives of the deposed Dalai Lama. Tibet is and forever a part of China and how it is being ruled is all up to the Chinese people. Using human rights as a lame excuse to criticize China’s handling of Tibet is clearly unacceptable. Even without these few Dalai Lama’s friends, the Olympics Games was a complete success. And in China quest to become an advance nation in the future, the Chinese people do not really need this type of friends to be around.
Personally, I do not even have an ounce of respect for the wily and cunning “imposter” the West revered so much. The “wolf in the sheep clothing” person claimed that he does not want independence but only autonomy from China. But what he is demanding is for the “freedom” of Greater Tibet and the authority to decide on foreign policy matters which actually means the “independence” and splitting of China. Han Chinese who have migrated to Tibet and the surrounding lands are to be redeployed back to where they came from. Furthermore, the very same “ethical” person referred the Tibet scenario as “hell on earth” and that China’s rule has resulted in “million of deaths” are pure nonsense and outright fabricated lies. When China brings development to Tibet, the Western critics called it a degradation of the scenic environment and if China does not do anything, the critics will say that there is no development in Tibet as compared to the coastal provinces. So either way, you will not be able to win the hearts of the Western media as they are all prejudicial in their opinions.
The West that is controlled by the neo-conservatives and pure rightist will seek to continue its dominance of the world and will not stop at anything to create additional hurdles for China’s gradual progress in economic development by using human rights as an excuse to fault China especially in the governing of Tibet. Tibet has been governed for more than 50 years already and only in the last 8 years that the criticism from the West has grown evidently stronger. Perhaps, the Dalai Lama is now closer to his mortality age with no successor. China’s human rights situation is presently so much better compared to the 60s and 70s and why do the West continue to harp on the same issues over and over again.
The 50th anniversary (this year) of a failed Tibetan uprising has passed and there is not a single incident of protest, clearly frustrating the many attempts by the Dalai Lama and its supporters to create troubles so as to garner world attention to what has been recognized in Asia as a dying cause.
It is believed that a letter would be sent to the Chinese President and the same website is currently soliciting signatures from Nobel laureates and celebrities to support their cause. Some of the well-known celebrities and award winners who have pledged their signatures were Elie Wiesel, Jody Williams, Richard Gere, Mia Farrow and Harrison Ford. The surprise addition here is Harrison Ford who will be listed as another person whom the Chinese dislikes on this blog.
I support the Chinese government way in bringing development to Tibet and to try to integrate every Tibetan into a modern society even if it takes another 100 years. It took more that 200 years to integrate the Red Indians into “white Caucasian” societies (some of them still lived on the streets to this day). Contrary to what is being reported, I am confident that the Chinese government will protect the rich cultures and ceremonies of the Tibetans in a century from now.
