"Self-immolation Instructions": desperate craze of the Dalai clique
2013-03-01 10:44

Recently, the Dalai Lama clique published a "Self-immolation Instructions" on the Internet, openly encouraging the Tibetans within the Chinese border to "carry out self-immolations according to plan and procedures".

"The Self-immolation Instructions" demonstrates a sober attitude in scheming and arranging the cruel actions of self-immolations, which makes it stand out among many propaganda of the Dalai Lama clique, and thus soon get intensive spotlight.

It is only for the "Tibetan government-in-exile" to avoid public condemnation toward its overt manipulation of self-immolations that the book is published in his own name.

The author of the "Instructions" is Lhamo Je, who had been a "member of the parliament" for two terms in the "parliament" of the Dalai clique and is now still on important position in the "educational system".

The "Self-immolation Instructions" consists of four parts. The first part is an ideological mobilization which advocates the idea that self-immolators are "great and honorable fearless heroes" and that "both male and female heroes" should be ready at all times to sacrifice for the "just cause".

The second part gives detailed instruction on the "self-immolation preparation", including "picking important days and places", "leaving written or recorded last words", and "asking a couple of trustworthy people to help record videos and take photos".

The third part introduces the "self-immolation slogans" and instructs the self-immolators to shout "Free Tibet, let the Dalai Lama return to Tibet, and release political prisoners" and so forth, and asks them to print out the slogans into leaflets to scatter them on the spots so as to enlarge the impact.

The fourth part illustrates "other non-violent activities" such as "shouting loudly the campaign slogans at schools and other populated places", "making public speeches", and "filing petitions to the central government", and pints out that "it is very important to launch various activities in the fields of politics, economy, religion and culture."

No matter from which perspective, this "Self-immolation Instructions" can yet be regarded as "a remarkable piece of writing", for it is tantamount to the "confession" of the Dalai clique who has committed the crime of manipulating self-immolations.

As the head of the "Tibetan government-in-exile"has ask the Chinese government to show evidence of the Dalai clique's manipulation of the self-immolations, and "welcome" the Chinese group to go to Dharamsala to search for evidence, they have now made the evidence public by themselves.

The reliability of the evidence is not only lies in the source of the writer, a senior official of the Dalai clique, but also in the confirmation of every item of the contents listed by all the self-immolations happened before.

In fact, almost every self-burning happened on the spot just like what the "instruction" had planned-someone videoing the scene, someone shouting separatist slogans, inciting and gathering some people to stop the government from taking rescue actions.

Sometimes the Dalai clique was able to hype the burning cases with the photos and personal data of the self-immolators even within dozens of minutes.

The contents of the "last words" shouted by the self-immolators are exactly the same with the "Instructions".

According to Lorang Konchok, who has pleaded guilty of intentional homicide that he acted on the instructions of the Dalai clique, who required him to make use of his status and influence in the temple, and incited, instigated and coerced others to burning themselves with the help of his nephew.

Before the self-burning happened, Lorang Konchok recorded the individual and family information of the self-immolator and took photos for them. Once the self-immolation crime was committed, he sent the information immediately to the Dalai clique through a cell phone call.

The "Self-immolation instructions" aims to "standardize and systematize the self-immolation behavior so as to manipulate it like an assembly line in the future", and reach the "more efficient" goal put forward by the Dalai Lama.

The "Self-immolation Instructions" also gives a slap to some Western forces. In order to contain and split China, for many years these forces have set the Dalai Lama as a "nonviolence" struggle model.

After the self-immolation incident, they completely disregarded the fact, denied the crimes committed by the Dalai clique, and accused the policy made by the Chinese government of causing the self-immolations. Furthermore, they even showed sympathy for and "concern" to those criminals who have been sentenced to jail according to the Chinese law to encourage the self-immolation manipulators.

The publishing of the "Self-immolation Instructions", which publicly admitted the crime of the Dalai clique's inciting and planning self-immolations and its political motivations as well as its future plans of continued manipulations hasn't saved faces of his Western masters.

Why did the Dalai clique publish the "Self-immolation Instructions" at this moment? The reason is that the extremists among them feel desperate.

According to the Canadian Sing Tao Daily, the 14th Dalai Lama once instructed his followers earnestly and tirelessly, "suppose we resort to arms to achieve our purpose, we need guns and ammunition in the first place, but who will sell them to us? If we find the seller, where can we get the money? Even if we have money and get guns, how can these guns be transported to China and through which county border? The CIA once air-dropped guns for us, which happened in the past and will never happen again."

The 14th Dalai Lama drew a lesson from his own failures: That seeking "Tibet independence" through armed violence activities publicly didn't work, and it is better to adopt the "Middle-way Approach", which can deceive the world and seek "Tibet independence" indirectly. However, this political program hasn't made any progress since its presence, and even the channel of contact and talk with Chinese central government was blocked by themselves.

Up to now, the scheme of manipulating self-immolations has been worked out by racking their brains as "the highest form of non-violence struggle" is going to be doomed. All of these make some extremists more and more impatient and have to publish the "Self-immolation Instructions", hoping this wicked fire extinguish with some "achievements" at least.

Another reason for the publication of the "Self-immolation Instructions" is that self-immolations haven't achieved the effect in the international community as the Dalai clique had expected. Even if some Western powers who always support the Dalai clique dare not take huge risk of losing political reputation or moral legality to support manipulating self-immolation, which is a converted violence and terrorism publicly.

The head of the "government-in-exile" lamented, "self-immolation in Tunisia can be the catalyst of the Arab Spring, why cannot we get the same support from the international community as that in the Arab world?" , reported New York Times on Feb. 3rd .

A comment from the Chinese News Net pinpointed, "in fact, the self-immolations of Tibetans have rarely received support from the international community."

It is hard to imagine that how the international community can support such brutal and inhumane acts. The Chinese government doesn't create conditions to encourage Tibetans to self-immolate. Hence they cannot be condemned.

Western countries all understand the background of the self-immolations. They have given enough faces for not condemning the "Tibetan government-in-exile".

The Dalai clique attempted to prompt more self-immolations through publishing the "Self-immolation Instructions" in order to beg for more international compassions. This act has actually made the international community to recognize the ferocity and craze of the Dalai clique clearly, and urge some Western powers to hold back when supporting the Dalai clique.

The "Self-immolation Instructions" published at this time by the Dalai clique at the moment attempted to make a political blackmail, against the Chinese government, but it turned out to be in vain.

If plotting "Tibet independence" failed in 1959 through the military confrontation and armed rebellion, how it would be possible to make it be by inciting several poor people to burn themselves?

In fact, through the joint efforts of all levels of the government where the incident happened, the frequency of self-immolation has been curbed and the evidence of the Dalai Lama's role in manipulating self-immolation has been made clear. Many criminals, whose behaviors are hated by local people, have been brought to justice.

All of these fully show the unpopularity of the Dalai clique in China and the popularity of Chinese government. The Chinese government will win the battle of the anti self-immolations as long as it does not get illusion toward the Dalai clique, nor expects some Western forces to be kind, but keep the situation under control on the basis of our own works.

The Dalai clique's fantasy that every self-immolation will exert some pressure on the Chinese government will be highly counter-productive. On the contrary, every self-immolation case occurred was an additional bloody crime the Dalai clique committed for its own ethnic Tibetans.

Did the Dalai clique including the plotters of the "Self-immolation Instructions", tell the public repeatedly that self-immolation is a kind of "peaceful protest" and expect to get the same attention as the vendors in Tunisia? Then please teach yourselves by following the instructions first like what the netizens have called for. If you dare not burn yourselves, please stop the folly as early as possible.

Just as Luxun, a famous Chinese writer has said that people who are alive have no right to persuade somebody to die. So do it yourself first if you believe it is a good idea to die.
