Misjudgments by the "wise" Dalai Lama
10:40, March 03, 2010  

In the eyes of the Dalai Lama's fans, he is always a wise leader. However, people have seen undisputed facts beneath his so-called wise halo – The Dalai Lama has always misjudged situations and made wrong choices in critical moments.

According to a recent report by the Los Angeles Times, the Dalai Lama said that there are signs that the standoff between the Chinese Government and himself could thaw, because he was encouraged by a rising number of Chinese intellectuals who support him. To prove this point, he said, "Chinese writers published 800 articles in support of Tibetan autonomy, 300 of them were published in China itself." His remarks directly and indirectly implied that people mostly support what he is advocating and the situation is improving in his favor.

The Dalai Lama did not mention how many Chinese intellectuals wrote the 800 articles or whether they are typical among Chinese intellectuals, but vaguely claimed, "They are very critical of their own government's policies." This caused the reporter from the Los Angeles Times to quote the number in a particularly prudent manner - "Those figures could not be independently verified."

In fact, compared with the wily old Dalai Lama, his private representative Kelsang Gyaltsen is more honest. According to a report February 21 by the VOA, Gyaltsen pointed out that the above data used by the Dalai Lama was worked out half a year ago. The data involves articles on the Tibet issue written by all of the overseas Chinese exiles, including those living in Chinese mainland. In addition, he had to acknowledge that all the articles they collected were published abroad.

The remarks from Gyaltsen proved that the Dalai Lama did not have the basic data, disclosed the Dalai Lama's lie of "300 were published in China itself," and also revealed why the Dalai Lama was not fully convinced in the issue of how typical the intellectuals supporting him is. It is obvious that the so-called "Chinese intellectuals," who he claimed are "very critical of their own government's policies," are simply writers employed by "pro-democracy activists" and the evil "Falun Gong' cult.

The writers who played the "Chinese-Tibetan Friendship Association" farce with the Dalai Lama in 2009 are dependent on the support from foreign anti-China foundations and have conducted various types of activities to smear China's image. They and the Dalai Lama attract to each other by common tastes, so it is not strange that they wrote articles to promote the Dalai Lama.
