    Dalk omdat China gesÍ het hulle moet nie. Om een of ander rede sien China hom as 'n bedreiging. En as China sÍ spring vra Afrika hoe hoog.

      China haat die Dalai Lama soos pes.
      Suid Afrika se grootkoppe is besitings van China.
      Een en een is twee.

      Ironies aangesien ons regering so vreeslik verlig en demokraties is.

        SA is mos nou deel van BRICS, (Brazil, Russia, India, China en SA) maar hoe pas die Dalai Lama hierby in.... Wat is hy anders as 'n geestelike leier....?

          Analysis: Why the Dalai Lama angers China


          When U.S. president Barack Obama meets the Dalai Lama at the White House this week, expect China to get angry.
          The Dalai Lama, Tenzin Gyatso, is the traditional religious and temporal head of Tibetan Buddhists. He was made head of state at age 15 in 1950, the same year that Chinese troops occupied Tibet.
          The Dalai Lama held negotiations with Chinese officials on Tibetan self-rule with little success. In 1959, he fled Tibet for exile in India after a failed uprising against Chinese rule.

          Over the years, the Dalai Lama has continued to lobby for self-rule in Tibet. Tibetans around the world revere him as their spiritual leader and cultural icon. He has traveled the globe, attending meditation conferences, giving speeches in universities and parliaments, and meeting people from all walks of life, from CEOs to Hollywood stars to heads of state. He received the Nobel peace prize in 1989.
          Overseas, the Dalai Lama is a celebrated figure. In China, he is a despised troublemaker.
          Chinese officials have vilified him as a "wolf in monk's clothing" who seeks to destroy the country's sovereignty by pushing for independence. The Dalai Lama maintains that he does not advocate independence but wants an autonomy that would allow Tibetans to maintain their cultural, language and religion under China's rule.
          China remains unconvinced.
          "The Dalai Lama states that he is not seeking Tibetan independence, but Beijing sees this as a mere cover, because he has never openly given up the demand for so-called 'Greater Tibet' autonomy, so Beijing sees his meetings with world leaders as pushing for political goals," said Wenran Jiang, political science professor at University of Alberta.
          Though the Dalai Lama heads a Tibetan government-in-exile not recognized by any country, his receptions and meetings with world leaders prompt China's stern condemnation.
          "China is hypersensitive about unrest and separatism in its border regions," said David Shambaugh, a professor of political science and international affairs at George Washington University. "Ever since the Dalai Lama's abortive 1959 uprising... he has been seen by Beijing as a subversive and 'splittist.' The Chinese feel that meeting foreign heads of state, including President Obama, gives the Dalai Lama political credibility he does not deserve."

                  The government stuck to its refusal to pronounce on the Dalai Lama's visa application on Monday but came under pressure from rights activists and ally Cosatu to allow him into the country.
                  "Even though China is our biggest trading partner, we should not exchange our morality for dollars or yen," the trade union federation's Western Cape leader Tony Ehrenreich told a candlelight vigil outside Parliament.
                  "It is completely inappropriate and discriminatory that the Dalai Lama should be denied access. Our democracy is founded on diversity, imperfect as it is."
                  Ehrenreich said South Africans wanted to see the rights of the Tibetan spiritual leader respected and warned: "The government must not act against the will of the people because then you are no longer acting on our behalf."
                  Opposition leader Helen Zille and academic Mamphele Rampehle accused the government of betraying South Africa's sovereignty and Constitution.
                  "We cannot be blackmailed into defying our Constitution," Zille said at the peaceful protest by some 200 people, some of them praying.

                      Tutu Slams ANC For Failing To Grant Dalai Lama Visa
                      by The Associated Press



                      October 4, 2011
                      Retired Archbishop Desmond Tutu, an anti-apartheid hero often described as South Africa's conscience, slammed the ANC-led government Tuesday as "disgraceful" and said it is worse than the country's former oppressive white regime for not issuing a visa to the Dalai Lama.

                      The African National Congress responded by calling Tutu's comparisons to the apartheid regime and to toppled Arab dictatorships "very unfortunate and totally misplaced," and said the government should be given time to explain its actions.

                      South African foreign ministry officials have denied accusations they are stalling on the visa because of pressure from China, a major trading partner. Tutu, who received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his nonviolent campaign against white racist rule, turns 80 on Friday and had invited his fellow Nobel laureate to South Africa to celebrate his birthday.

                      "This government, our government, is worse than the apartheid government, because at least you were expecting it with the apartheid government," Tutu said, describing anti-regime activists being denied passports at the last minute by the white racist regime.

                      Barely concealing his fury, Tutu repeatedly told ANC leaders to "watch out" and warned them about becoming too complacent after winning every election since 1994 with large majorities.

                      He indicated they could face the fate of Arab dictatorships.

                      "Well, Mubarak had a large majority. Gadhafi had a large majority," Tutu said, referring to toppled Arab leaders in Egypt and Libya. "One day we will start praying for the defeat of the ANC government. You are disgraceful."

                      Tutu accused the government of failing to side with "Tibetans who are being oppressed viciously by the Chinese." He also charged President Jacob Zuma with ignoring the contribution religious leaders made to toppling the white Nationalist Party.

                      "Hey, Mr. Zuma, you and your government don't represent me. I am warning you like I warned the Nationalists," he said, referring to the party that ruled during apartheid.

                              'Tutu is not a Christian too', het iemand al daai boek gelees? Ek dink as mens net 'n bietjie oplet, kan mens geen ander afleiding maak nie en dit is so blatant, dat mens dit baie maklik kan sÍ.
