The Hypocrisy of Anti-China Demonstrations

20 April 2008

The following are the except from an online article by Floyd Rudmin and its Chinese translation. The full text can be view at

We hear that Tibetans suffer “demographic aggression” and “cultural genocide”. But we do not hear those terms applied to Spanish and French policies toward the Basque minority. We do not hear those terms applied to the US annexation of the Kingdom of Hawaii in 1898. And Diego Garcia?

In 1973, not so long ago, the UK forcibly deported the entire native Chagossian population from the Indian Ocean island of Diego Garcia. People were allowed one suitcase of clothing. Nothing else. Family pets were gassed, then cremated. Complete ethnic cleansing. Complete cultural destruction. Why ? In order to build a big US air base. It has been used to bomb Afghanistan and Iraq, and soon maybe to bomb Iran and Pakistan. Diego Garcia, with nobody there but Brits and Americans, is also a perfect place for rendition, torture and other illegal actions.

The height of hypocrisy is this moral posturing about 100 dead in race riots in Lhasa, while the USA, UK and more than 40 nations in the Coalition of the Willing wage a war of aggression against Iraq. This is not “demographic aggression” but raw shock-and-awe aggression. A war crime. A war on civilians, including the intentional destruction of the water and sewage systems, and the electrical grid. More than one million Iraqis are now dead; five million made into refugees. The Western invaders may not be doing “cultural genocide” but they are doing cultural destruction on an immense scale, in the very cradle of Western Civilization. Why is the news filled with demonstrators about Tibet but not about Iraq

And as everyone knows but few dare say, “demographic aggression” and “cultural genocide” can be applied most accurately to Israel’s settlement policies and systematic destruction of Palestinian communities. On this, the Dalai Lama seems silent. Demonstrators don’t wave flags for bulldozed homes, destroyed orchards, or dead Palestinian children. Full

我们被告知藏人的领土被侵占,文化被消灭,但我们却从未听人提起西班牙人和法兰西人是怎样对待巴斯克少数民族的;从未听人提起美国人是如何吞并夏威夷群岛的;从未听人提起蝶沟尕霞 (Diego Garcia)。

While Dalai Lama Is Preaching Peace in the U.S., Tibetan Youth Congress Claims to Adopt Terrorism

But is Dalai Lama the head and spiritual leader of Tibetans in exile? If he indeed is, then he is Dalai Lair; if he isn't, then Chinese government should have nothing to do with him.
