Dear Mr. Trent Lott,
Mr. Denny Hastert,
Beijing, Jan. 23 ---
Beijing has launched a three-year propaganda campaign aimed at stamping
out religion in Tibet and ending support for the Dalai Lama living
in exile, the Tibet Information Network (TIN) said Saturday (Jan.
Communist Chinese troops "liberated" Tibet in 1951, but
are still fighting a battle to control the hearts and
minds of many Tibetans who remain loyal to their spiritual
leader, the Dalai Lama, despite lengthy campaigns to discredit him.
"Some herdsmen and peasants are constrained by the negative
influence of religion and are unable to accept scientific knowledge
and practical technology" the newspaper said. "It is of
actual and deep historic importance for the people to get rid of
the bind of feudal superstition and old customs and regulations"
A speech by Raidi deputy party secretary in Tibet on Nov. 15, also
called for new efforts to reduce religion in Tibet. The
1949 founding of the PRC was followed by Mao's Great Leap Forward
Movement in 1959, and the Great Cultural Revolution in the late
'60s. Deng Xiaoping's opening to the west stared in 1979. And the
Tiananmen Square massacre took place in 1989. Now, Jiang Zemin is
cracking down on political dissent.
These cycle are evidence that the communist regime in Beijing tolerates
no dissent, and permits no democracy
as is known in the west. It is, therefore, naive to expect Beijing
to adopt western style democracy or respect human rights as defined
in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights for which can never
understand that democracy is the best guarantee of stability.
In our views; that Taiwan should be held up as an example of what
free people can achieve in a Chinese society. And the
United States should make clear that democracy allows for free and
open debate of controversial views, even independence.
It should not view such a debate as just cause by military intimidation
by mainland China. The United States cannot credibly advocate democracy
and the protection of human rights if it turns a blind eye toward
these developments form communist China.
However; Taiwan political situation was confused by United States'
policy, because U.S. President Bill Clinton publicly
heaped premature and overly generous praise on mainland Chinese
President Jiang Zemin, who now in calling for the
Amihilation of dissident and Beijing authorities threat to use military
attack democratic Taiwan when on independence happened in island.
Very thanks to read the letter from our foundation. God blesses
