Dalai Lama and his followers look gloomy, grieved and even in low spirits whenever they go, as they say that they have been wronged and "repressed" at the meetings they hold to tell of their bitterness or grievances.
Such kind of grief is depicted in detail in "petitions" and "statements" they have issued to show they are in anxiety and in grief so they deserve "sympathy," whereas the Chinese government resorts to "arrests", "tortures", "assaults" and even "crackdown"as they label against it.
If judgments are made based merely on their words, the Dalai clique would be regarded as the most pitiful and most innocent people in the world –- They have nothing to do with March 14 incident in Lhasa but have been reproached by the Chinese government; they do not intent to separate China but have been subjected to "groundless" criticisms; they have indicated from the very start their "support for holding the Olympic Games in Beijing" but have caused suspicions without any reason.
If the Dalai Lama and his clique did not plot the riots in Lhasa and other ethnic Tibetan areas, then how those have surrendered themselves to the police confess that they were incited by the Dalai clique? It they do not seek the "Tibetan independence", why are they bent on organizing the Tibetan government in exile, and it they sincerely support Beijing Olympic Games, why do they disrupt the Olympic torch relay?
In fact, the Dalai clique, by showing their grievance, is aimed to prove to the whole world that Tibet issue cannot be disregarded or overlooked. By playing the "grief" cards, they are able to divert people's attention, shirk their responsibilities and act as victims; they can win sympathy, grab the "capital" and pass themselves off as the "weak" and, once they won sympathy from the international community, they would have the "capital" to exert pressure upon China, they can stir up antagonism and set off confrontation, and act as both victims and spokesmen of Tibet, in a bid to drive a wedge between ethnic Tibetans and Han people. Hence, by playing the "grief" card, "three birds can be killed with one stone indeed," as a Chinese proverb goes.
Back in 1960, Dalai Lama took pains to portray an ethnical Tibetan image subjected to "foreign oppression" in the book "My Land And My People" he wrote through cooperation with his peers. At the fifth "International Tibet Support Groups Conference" held in Brussels in May 2007, the current woman leader of the International Tibet movement of the Dalai clique in Europe, sobbed and wailed before the TV camera and, as soon as the conference was over, she talked and laughed with her colleagues and jumped for joy together.
Meanwhile, some Western media and politicians have acted deaf and dumb to crimes of the Dalai clique and turn a blind eye to their separatist schemes. On the contrary, they prettify their activities as for "seeking the human rights and resisting to oppression", so as to enhance their image as the "weak" and "victimized".
He Yaoyi, the president of the Federation of Chinese Students (and Scholars) in France, "hit the nail on the head" with his remarks, saying that the Dalai clique has attempted to draw sympathy and hoodwink the world with such manuvering or promotions. Meanwhile, Adrian Geiges, a correspondent for the German Weekly Stern, said in a recent published story title "Dalai Lama is no innocent angel but a successful diplomat." At the very place the Dalai clique showed their "grievances", many Chinese expatriates held protests and demonstrations and presented a true Tibet to the international community in an all-round way on related topics against violence and false reporting.
Either in disguise of being "grievous" or the "weak", people ultimately turn to the factual truth as the yardstick to determine whether it is right and wrong. As compared to the United States, Al Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, the mastermind behind the September 11 attacks of 2001 in the U.S., was the prey of the strong and, under such circumstance, who can say the "weak" is bound to be right, said an ace expert of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute.
Consequently, we'd like to offer a piece of advice to the Dalai Clique: You'd better give up your activities for separation of the motherland than play the "grief" card. Only in this way, can you get the people's most rudimentary respect instead of being spurned and forsaken by history.
