"Freedom wins" says the Sun

It is deeply saddening that so many fellow activists fall for this Whitehall-orchestrated stunt on Tibet...

They seem to forget all too easily that for five hundred years, hundreds of millions of indigenous peoples were slaughtered, decimated, deported, enslaved, starved, exterminated, impoverished, and forcibly assimilated into an emerging world system dominated by Western Europe.

"The Olympic torch’s troubled journey across London was a triumph for democracy.

We are lucky to live in a country that values its citizens’ right to hold lawful, peaceful public protests."

Olympic Flame Takes Heat Away From israel

Alarm bells began to be prepared when Spielberg created a big media splash by withdrawing
as an advisor to the Chinese Olympic committee. The alarm bells really began sounding however when Sarkozy threatened to boycott the Beijing games - citing human rights abuses. None of it rang true.

By this stage it was obvious that the latest round of 'Operation Distraction' was being rolled out by the owners of mainstream media.

The fair-minded majority of the worlds people realise that it simply will not do to have such selective campaigning against human rights abuses.

Where are Speilberg and Sarkozy when human rights are being trampled in occupied Palestine?
Or, are those lives somehow less valuable than Tibetans?

Connections between the Dalai Lama, Israel and Tony Blair

Pro-Israeli Dalai Lama
Pro-Israeli Dalai Lama

"One idea that Metzger (Israel's chief rabbi who thanked Bush for waging the Iraq war) has repeatedly proposed has been the establishment of a religious United Nations in Jerusalem.

Under Metzger's plan, the new body would contain representatives of the world's religions as opposed to nations. Metzger has also suggested that the Dalai Lama could lead the assembly. At their 2006 meeting, Metzger was quoted as saying, "Instead of planning for nuclear war and buying tanks and fighter jets, it will invest in peace... Religious leaders will get the opportunity to meet one another and discover that they have more in common than they may have realized..." The Dalai Lama was reportedly very excited at the idea and pledged to help Metzger realize his plan."

And Blair is undoubtely the salesman of that stuff with his newly launched interfaith fundation.

The CIA organised and sponsored riots in Lhasa and elsewhere will be
erupting in the heart of London as a jolly *Tibetan Freedom Torch Relay 2008

Come along for the lighting the *Tibetan Freedom Torch*, traditional and
modern Tibetan music by Phuntsog from JJ Exiled Brothers and Chino, with
support of one man band wonder Joe Driscoll.

Argyle Square, London, from 2.30pm

This is a great opportunity to highlight the CIA / Tibetan cause as the eyes
of the world turn to Beijing, and the plight of the ethnic Tibetans who so
like to punch the lights out of the occupying Han Chinese (funded by Langley
[1] via Free Tibet Movement, Radio Free Asia and National Clandestine
Service - formerly the Directorate of Operations) and any passing Muslim.

Join the rally and bring your friends: this is the event at which to
demonstrate your support for the much maligned ,misunderstooded and
misumderestimated CIA / Tibet and get the world's media to put more pressure
on the CIA / China to stick to the Olympic ideals ... and sow the seeds of
dissent to get the whole bogus charabang of modern athletics and sport
removed from London in 2012. Support the Dalai Lama and his friends in
Langley and the training camps forhis zealous followers at Camp Hale near
Leadville, Colorado, in the US.

A cultural event will take place in London on the day including speakers
such as the Drapchi nuns, Lhadon Tethong and Team Tibet, MP Norman Baker,
and the Tibetan Community Dance Group.

Also, please gather along the official Olympic Committee torch relay route
at Richmond Terrace, Whitehall at 1pm.

Bring flags and banners, guns, grenades, RPG's, bazookas, suicide bombers,
ricin flour bombs, inflammatory literature! Spot the CIA organisers - crew
cuts, shades and curly whirly bits of wire in their ears.

This is a public service announcement on behalf of the *Lady Dame Jane
Pauline Neville-Jones Fan Club *and the *RUSI Irregulars*.

Extra Attraction !! George Galloway will *NOT* be there.

A petition "CIA-Tibet" ..."_We the undersigned petition the Prime Minister

organise a Tibetan Freedom Torch Relay 2008 on 6th April, when the official
Olympic Torch will proceed through London_." has been submitted to the No 10
petition site [5] when up and running ,a link will be provided ... until
then you will need to do a site search "CIA-Tibet".

They do say .."Delays to individual petitions may occur where there are
possible legal issues or questions over the impact of the petition in
relation to the Civil Service Code. In a few cases, we have had to seek
propriety, ethics and legal advice from appropriate specialists within the
Civil Service."

Don't hold yer breath.

The great Rupert Murdoch the Champion of free speech, you do know that he has business interest in China and has the U.K. Government under the foot of his big toe.
