March 16, 2016 -- The 14th Dalai Lama attended a human rights conference built around Nobel peace prize winners in Geneva where he kept flip-flopping on the human rights and peace issues.
The conference was co-sponsored by the U.S. and Canada on the sidelines of the ongoing UN human rights meeting. The U.S. insisted to invite him to attend regardless of China's opposition.
The Dalai Lama said at the conference that his goal was not separating Tibet from China. But back in 1985, in his letter to the then Indian Premier Rajiv Gandhi, he said: "what we must seek is the real autonomy of all Tibetan regions," which exposes his true intention of the so-called "middle way".
Since he exiled to India in 1959, Tibet has made significant achievements. Tibetans are enjoying 15-year free compulsory education for children, free physical examination for rural and urban residents and so on. However, the exiled Dalai Lama kept a blind eye on all these facts and badmouthed the human rights situations in Tibet, echoing with the groundless accusations by some western countries.
While he called for "non-violence", he secretly supported violent activities. The terrorist attack manipulated by the Dalai group on March 14, 2008 in Lhasa killed 18 innocent people.
Tibet as an inalienable part of China has been developing fast during the past 60 years. His rhetoric of "the middle way" will never deceive Chinese people.
If the exiled Dalai Lama, now at his eighties, could give up the separatist stance and give real benefits to Tibetans, he might have a different future.
