Fake Panchen Lama Speaks

WSJ China Realtime Report
When Gyaltsen Norbu, the youth selected by Beijing as the second-highest leader in Tibetan Buddhism, made an appearance at the Labrang Monastery in northwest China last year, foreigners were warned to get out of town and armed guards roamed the streets. On Thursday, though, the 22-year-old Panchen Lama — dismissed as an interloper by many Tibetans — gave a very public, and relatively uneventful, keynote speech before hundreds of monks, nuns and scholars in Hong Kong.

In his first appearance outside the Chinese mainland, a crimson-clad Norbu bowed before a relic said to be a 2,500-year-old vestige of the skull of Buddha and read a prepared speech. Buddhist teachings are the “sweet dew that ends human suffering and is a way to promote world peace,” said Norbu, who also inveighed against the corrupting influence of greed and “materialist technology.”

Wow... sometimes even I'm shocked at the naked hypocrisy of the CCP. It's not enough that a bunch of atheist thugs "disappeared" the chosen Panchen Lama and his entire family, and replaced him with a shanzai version. Now they have him going around parroting the party line about corruption and greed. Crazy.

The whole reason this guy "is" the Panchen Lama is because of CCP's greed and hunger for power. China is occupying Tibet simply to enrich the communist party and to keep the fenqing/nationalists in check. All that talk about serfdom and freeing the Tibetans from oppression is total crap. From his name (Gyaltsen Norbu), I'm guessing he is Tibetan... really, how does he sleep at night knowing he's betraying his religion and contributing to the destruction of his culture? And for what? A pat on the head from Hu Jingtao? So he can live in relative luxury while speaking out against it? Ugh, he's no better than Bo Xilai... disgusting.

Gyaltsen Norbu = Judas Iscariot
