Why World ‘Leaders’ Are Culpable Of Crimes Against Tibet

Turning A Blind Eye

No genocide exists in a vacuum and while responsibility can often be justly placed upon an originating tyranny, be it China’s regime, the Khymer Rouge, or dictators such as Stalin and Hitler the atrocities and oppression which spring from such fascistic authority are often enabled and tolerated by the political and economic interests of other states. Some go further of course and encourage and fund state-terrorism, we need only to assess the history between the CIA and Pol Pot to realize that ethics can be relegated below geo-strategic requirements. Sure the Western Allies went to war against the Nazis, but there was much appeasement, indifference and indeed financial, as well as academic cooperation with Hitler’s Germany that took place. Would the horrors that came to define Germany during that period have been prevented or significantly reduced had the world presented, from the rise of Hitler, a unified and determined stance against fascism?

Of course it was not in the political and more importantly commercial interest of countries to destablize relations with Germany in the years prior to the Second World War. Yet they were aware of the accounts of labor-camps, forced-sterilization laws and growing persecution of Gypsies and Jews, but took vitually no action. Such economically driven apathy sent a clear signal to the Nazis that the wider world cared so little of such reports as to be interpreted as an acceptance of their vicious campaign of suppression.

A similar theatre of callousness is emboldening the Chinese regime while Tibetans, Uyghurs, Mongolians, and Manchurians are suffering a genocidal assault against their cultural and national identity. Concentration camps are housing up to a million Uyghurs, existing in a dark misery, abused and indoctrinated with the approved ideology of China’s totalitarian authority. Human rights violations mostly ignored, the eradication of Tibetan and Uyghur culture barely mentioned, apart from the occasional platitude from a United Nations official or carefully worded report. Global media too facilitates the odious excesses of dictator Xi Jinpeng, its reportage, with far too few notable and sadly isolated examples, preoccupied with a narrative that in-the-main avoids or treads very softly on the nature and extent of tyranny that characterizes China’s policies towards Tibet and East Turkestan.

What’s behind such engineered disinterest? The political and financial concerns of states which have long elevated trade interests with China above unease on human rights and the brutal denial of freedom being witnessed against Tibetans and Uyghurs. What’s been a global scramble to profit from the opportunities of a Chinese market has resulted in a dilution of foreign policy anxieties on China and almost extinction of ethical structuring of such protocols. When governments issue bland and acutely worded cautions on human rights related issues on China their target audience is not the vile and corrupted terrorists of the Chinese regime, but a domestic one. Better show folks at least some pretence of valuing the principles we  make so much noise about as exemplifying our national values on liberty, justice and rights. These of course are being trampled into the dust by China’s paramilitary as they inflict measures of control and abuse that Himmler’s SS would have recognized!

Yet it is largely silence that dominates the global response, as business, media corporations and politicians grovel to Beijing, signalling to China that in real terms they are unconcerned by the harrowing atrocities and war of genocide against Tibetan and Uyghur culture. Like their Twentieth Century counterparts their greed-driven indifference makes them complict enablers of the harrowing crimes being perpetrated against the people of occupied Tibet, East Turkestan and China itself.

The Fraudulent Defenders Of A Tolerant Society

If ever proof was needed that Earth is in truth a planetary detention center for the criminally insane then the manipulation and deception which was to hijack the Unity March, that challenged the appalling recent events on the streets of Paris, surely presents convincing evidence. The staged image of global political leaders seemingly leading this mass outpouring of solidarity against extremism was of course a fake, taken in a deserted street, surrounded by security forces! It was a photo-opportunity that simply could not be resisted and one that served a dark agenda, which predictably seeks further erosion of civil liberties and an increase in the power of the surveillance state!

The cynical sleight-of-hand, aided by a servile and at times hysterical media support was rightly exposed and criticized across the Internet, yet that outrage was eclipsed by the venom and condemnation at the presence of Israeli leader Benjamin Nentanyau, ‘The Butcher Of Gaza’ who has the blood of countless innocent Palestinians upon his hands. What had been born from the hopes and solidarity of French citizens was kidnapped and debased into a circus of propaganda. Those who had rained terror from the skies onto civilians in Palestine, Afghanistan and Iraq now donned the color of mourning and issued platitudes of deceit about freedom-of-speech, human rights and democracy! The terrorist elite  lifted aloft the birds of peace and justice and vowed to honor and defend freedom, it was a demonstration of delusion and deception on a scale reminiscent of 9/11.

Meanwhile China’s regime issued a statement condemning the shootings “We are deeply shocked at the terrorist attack and strongly condemn it,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Hong Lei said, “We mourn for the victims and express sympathy to the bereaved families and the injured.” SOURCE

Not much mourning from the global political elite for the murdered and tortured peoples of Tibet, East Turkestan and Southern Mongolia, lands who suffer, at the hands of China, a genocidal assault against their culture, religions and national identity. The same leaders who engineered their duplicitous show of solidarity at Paris have done little but indulge the Chinese authorities, weasel words of diluted concern has greeted the endless list of atrocities authorized and committed by China’s totalitarian government. Freedom of speech will be defended in Europe while its violent suppression in Tibet and Palestine is callously ignored, such was the nauseating hypocrisy that shadowed the image taken on that protected and empty Parisian boulevard.

Latest Anti-Uyghur Propaganda From China's Regime
Latest Anti-Uyghur Propaganda From China’s Regime

Meanwhile ever vigilant to seek maximum advantage of global events China’s propaganda machine has been busy posting further anti-Muslim disinformation across the streets of towns and cities in East Turkestan. In these crude cartoons those forces which in reality are terrorizing Uyghur culture are transformed from soldiers of retribution to those of peace and unity. These racist inspired images have a perverse vulgarity reminiscent of anti-Jewish propaganda from the 1930s, with those deemed subversive by the state shown as worthy only for annihilation.  Untermensch (German for under-man, sub-man, subhuman) is a term used by the Nazis to describe so-called “inferior people”. An attitude not entirely dissimilar to that held by China’s regime to wards the brutalized, exploited, and colonized Tibetan, Uyghur and Mongolian peoples!

As commentators and politicians line-up to offer their insights and positions of freedom-of-speech, under the vicious tyranny of China’s regime people are denied that right, somehow their plight seems diminished, less valued by a western society that demands of its Muslim communities to respect and defend freedom-of-speech, while offering the mildest expression of unease as such freedom lies battered and bleeding across the occupied land of East Turkestan.

New UN Rights Commissioner To Swallow China’s Lies On Tibet

Graphic courtesy of @tibettruth

The recently appointed UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Mr Zeid Ra’ad al Hussein is to visit occupied Tibet, with a possible trip to East Turkestan, (Report Here) the presumed purpose of his journey is to witness for himself the situation facing the oppressed Tibetan and Uyghur  peoples. Unfortunately as with other fact-finding delegations (https://tibettruth.com/2013/09/21/updated-the-sham-of-fact-finding-delegations-to-occupied-tibet/) permitted by the Chinese authorities he will be seeing very little apart from stage-managed propaganda!

China’s Regime Fooling Western Media Over One-Child Policy

One of the great fictions subscribed to by a number of prominent Tibet related organizations is that Tibetans are exempt from the atrocities generated by China’s notorious birth-control program. Such groups form this conclusion based upon the official declarations of the Chinese regime, interviews with a handful of Tibetans or the claims of anthropologists whose career interests require a pro-China line!

Curiously such credulity towards an authority expert in deception and propaganda does not extend to other human rights issues. Seems there’s a disconnect at work, with salaried lobbyists simultaneously rejecting China’s claims that Tibetans are not subject to human rights abuses, yet willing to accept without critique assertions from the Chinese government that the grim excesses of China’s one-child policy, including forced sterilizations, are not applied in occupied Tibet!

There exists however a considerable body of detailed information, testimony and witnessed accounts that reveals Tibetans have indeed suffered such abuses and continue to do so. Moreover statements from a number of Chinese officials have over the years conceded such a reality, the most recent was featured in a report by Zee News, an Indian based news-site.

Sadly mainstream media has a tendency to repeat as factual the official pretensions served up by China’s regime, a habit much to the delight of the Ministry Of Disinformation in Beijing which uses such gullibility to spread various propaganda aimed at diluting and deflecting international concern on any range of human rights issues. Meanwhile of course the violations continue, as women in China who suffer forced sterilizations would testify.

The Zee News report however, while displaying a naivete of breathtaking proportions, reported a concession from  Yang Wenzhuang that Tibet and East Turkestan had not yet relaxed the regulations pertaining to the one-child policy, now the propaganda line is that so-called ethnic minorities were exempt from such restrictions. Yet here we have a leading Minister in China’s Family Planning Commission acknowledging without qualification that these occupied territories have indeed been subject to such regulation!

Terrorist Explosions Hit China In Xinjiang

Image:original pierrej/graphic from @tibettruth

Our thoughts go out today to the reported 31 people killed REPORT and many injured in the series of explosions in Urumchi, the capital of occupied East Turkestan, known to China’s regime as Xinjiang.

China’s authorities have swiftly determined ‘terrorism’ as the cause and laid blame firmly upon elements within the Uyghur population. If we are to accept Beijing’s claims then the flames of dissent are being fanned by external extremist forces, its a familiar account which is being uncritically reported as fact by western media.

The details and perpetrators will no doubt be difficult to independently establish, and we should assess such events against the ever present reality that China’s regime is notoriously censorial and manipulative on the issue of East Turkestan, like Tibet and Southern Mongolia a land which has suffered decades of oppression and violence courtesy of Chinese rule.

What is known however is that China is waging an ideological war on the subject of East Turkestan and for years has been actively  portraying Uyghurs as Islamic terrorists, a charge that is backed more by a cynically constructed narrative than objectively established facts.

It may well be that people in the region have decided to launch an armed campaign against China, the resulting suffering is a cause of deep concern, yet a reactionary response, reliant upon a regime that specializes in terror itself, should be tempered with an understanding of the context of vicious colonization, oppression and exploitation which Uyghurs have endured. What terrorism will they again suffer as China places Urumchi under a military lock-down?

Urumchi Station Attack Exposes China’s Psyop Against Uyghurs

Bombing Of East Turkestan's Urumchi Rail Station
Bombing Of East Turkestan’s Urumchi Rail Station

Yesterday’s blast which caused death and injury at Urumchi railway station in East Turkestan is drawn from a well poisoned over decades of violent repression against the Uyghur people, by a Chinese regime that is determined to assimilate and erode the culture and national identity of that Central Asian land. Ignored by a corrupted United Nations, virtually invisible to Muslim states whose support and attention is focused upon the great injustice of Palestine what options do Uyghurs actually have?

As the world looks on at the bombing, presented through the distorting lens of China’s propaganda ministry, shocked and appalled, just what does it expect from those whose land and freedom have been stolen? Uyghur culture is under siege, swamped by Chinese colonization, while across East Turkestan Chinese troops occupy every city and town, which are now polluted and gaudy Chinese sprawls.

A once highly cultured state has become a Chinese colony, exploited and oppressed, with its natural resources sucked dry to service the economy of the tyrant. The Uyghur people denied the most fundamental of freedoms, women forcibly sterilized, a culture in chains. It is of course a grim reality that China’s authorities prefer you were ignorant of, how better to conceal such tyranny than by character assassination!

No Freedom In East Turkestan

This is an agenda that operates behind China’s reportage on East Turkestan, a dark and cynical motive to portray the region as a laboratory for unrest and terrorism. In a breathtaking display of hypocrisy China’s psychopathic leadership, rather like a rapist criticizing a woman for resisting his assault, protests against even the mildest form of dissent.

Meanwhile China is engaged in an ideological war that seeks to deceive international opinion on the subject of East Turkestan, seen most tellingly in coverage of the attack in Urumchi. It places great value upon the role of psychological operations, and its potential to distort the perceptions of a target audience, in this case via a compliant and largely uncritical global media. Such manipulation has become a favored tool of the Chinese security and propaganda agencies See File

In 2000 China established the Institute of Psywar of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army which trains officers in a range of psychological warfare techniques, including disinformation and media manipulation.

See http://english.peopledaily.com.cn/english/200110/24/eng20011024_83053.html

As noted by Chinese military academics Wang and Yang:

“In modern times the vast development in information, science, psychology, the science of broad-casting, and other sciences, and in particular the emergence of new and high technologies such as satellite communications,electronic computers, networking technology, and multimedia technology, provide a firm theoretical foundation and modern tools for psychological warfare.” (Source-Wang Zhenxing and Yang Suping, “On PSYWAR in Recent High-Tech Local Wars,” Junshi Kexue [China Military Science] December 20, 2000, pp. 127-33)

Within the twisted world of disinformation nothing is ever as it appears and without condoning the loss of life or injury, we need to exercise caution in responding to events such as the bombing at Urumchi. Perhaps too we can remember the decades of repression and suffering endured by the Uyghur people, whose plight is callously ignored by the international community.

UN Finally Crawls Into Limited Action On China’s Killings

At last the United Nations decides to crawl into action as communist Chinese troops shoot, arrest and abuse Uyghurs in East Turkestan for daring to protest at the continuing oppression in their land and oppose the injustices and human rights violatiosn which characterises China’s occupation. 

A senior level United Nations human rights official on Tuesday called on Chinese authorities and what it chose to describe as ‘ethnic groups’  in the region to refrain from further violence after what the UN representative termed “a major tragedy.” Ms.Navi Pillay, U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights, said demonstrators had the right to protest peacefully and that those arrested should be treated in line with international law.

Ms Pillay demanded a  full and transparent investigation which she insisted should be conducted into the causes of the deaths following Sunday’s peaceful protests,  and called on Communist Chinese authorities to publish the identities of those killed, and exactly determine what happened.  

“I urge Uighur and Han civic leaders, and the Chinese authorities at all levels, to exercise great restraint so as not to spark further violence and loss of life,” Pillay said in a statement. “This is a major tragedy.”

The former U.N. war crimes prosecutor was also concerned that China’s response should be measured. “However, it is vital that the authorities only resort to lethal force when it is strictly unavoidable in order to protect life.” She also called upon Communist China to treat humanely those arrested and use methods of questionning in compliance with international norms and that fair judicial process and investigation take place
