西藏:一个法国人向中国人民道歉 Tibet : Excuses d’un Français au Peuple Chinois

除了上回谈到的社会党议员Jean-Luc Melenchon,还有一个网刊《地缘政治》作者乔治•斯塔内希的惊天文章: Tibet : Excuses d’un Français au Peuple Chinois …《西藏:一个法国人向中国人民道歉》。

网络名人作者乔治•斯塔内希的一封信这几天也在网上流传。他的公开信《西藏:一个法国人向中国人民道歉》不仅文笔优美,更重要的是从历史事实一直讲到今天 西藏的现实和真相,同样令人读之感动。他在信中的第一句话,就是:“亲爱的中国朋友,我深感耻辱。几周以来,在我的国家里,中国人民、国家和行政机构,你 们的政府、你们的历史都被我们歇斯底里的所谓‘自由的’媒体抛进了污泥里。在奥运火炬经过巴黎时所发生的反华行径是不配我们的国家、我们声称要保卫的价 值,和最起码的款待来客的惯例的……”他表示,“我代表很多‘自由的’媒体从来不给我们发言权的法国人,向你们表示我们的歉意,和我个人的道歉……”

斯塔内希回顾了百多年来的历史后说,“你们,你们从来没有入侵过欧洲。也从来没有侵略过任何地方……是我们,我们入侵你们的国家,是我们在那里掠夺了一个世纪。”
斯塔内希不仅驳斥了“西藏不属于中国”的说法,而且以大量的事实来说明法国自己的诸多海外领地才是真正抢来的。“科西嘉一直是一个独立的国家,直到 1769年才被法国军事占领,并于18世纪末纳入法国的版图。法国所做的第一件事,就是取消科西嘉大学,这才是真正的‘文化灭绝’的第一步……”显然,这 是一位对法国政治体制运作非常清醒的网络学者。而正是因为这种清醒已经超越了“政治正确”的框架,所以看来他的作品是不会进入主流社会的。

My Chinese Friends

I am ashamed.

For weeks, in my country, in France, your people, your country, your institutions, your government, your history are dragged in the mud, in a collective hysteria managed by our media. Media that claim to be “free” … The anti-demonstrations that took place in Paris during the passage of the Olympic flame, are unworthy of my country, the values it claims to defend, and the basic laws of hospitality.

In the arrogance and ignorance, imbecility in a nutshell, journalists, presenters on radio and television, politicians, and other ballots in search of free publicity, compete for the opportunity to develop, giving you lessons in morality, freedom and human rights “.

But, as you know. In the West, and among his vassals, demonstrations, carefully organized for a long time, are willing to disrupt your Olympics, fanatisant people and public opinion against you. Our castes in power do not support your success. You get a long history, painful, heroic, beautiful. They do not support your independence.

You talk as equals with those who have behaved as masters of the world for centuries. Blind, they do not even know it, they are no longer. In your success, they see it as the next tipping the balance of power. They fear, because it calls into question their rule without sharing in the domination, and the sense of superiority to the rest of the planet.

They do not wish, therefore, just one thing: hinder your development, isolating you, you dividing. As they do in other countries, or on other continents. As they have done in your country. But all this, you know …

On behalf of many french, which our media so-called “free” do not call, I would like to offer our apologies, and my personal apology.

Yes, “Excuses.” First, however, I would like to ask you “Sorry” …

Pardon, on behalf of the Past, for having invaded your country, we will be engaged in atrocities and participated in the looting, for a century

You, you never invaded Europe. Neither any other continent, for that matter. Your Great Wall, is there to testify. You have always wanted to defend yourself from outside aggression, and you concentrate on your unit. This was not an easy task, in your great country, over the centuries of your history. One of the longest of humanity.

We have invaded your country. We contributed to the looting, for a century. It is so great, we met several to do so.

When your authorities have banned the use and import of opium in 1839, we have not appreciated. This traffic was managed by our British friends, from their possessions in India, in the province of Bengal more precisely. To get drugs from the port of Guangzhou (Canton), was a bonanza for many in the West. Civilian, military, politicians …

Proponents of this traffic, which led to huge personal fortunes, as well as those European politicians soudoyaient they deserved to be hanged. They were anoblis by the British Crown … Much of the current House of Lords is made, as well, of the heirs of these smugglers, these dealers. We, in our Republic, there are more titles of nobility, we give promotions, decorations or, even better, the annuities.

The Western powers have seen your refusal to import drugs produced and transported by westerners, as a serious infringement of the “Economic Liberalism.” It has no right to prohibit, in international trade. It is a blasphemy. At least, when the West decides …

So, you made the war, knowing that you did not have the means to support it. You knew in difficulty at the time. It was the perfect opportunity. This was officially the First Opium War, “from 1839 to 1842. The bulk of the military effort was provided originally by the British. There were assembled in this coalition (NATO did not yet exist), Britain, France, Germany, the United States and Japan.

The British by the Treaty of Nanking in 1842, you have therefore obliged to import the drugs, you tearing Hong Kong at the same time. Everybody’s doing is placed. The United States you have imposed the Treaty of Wanghia (or Wangxia), in 1844. We, french, you have the opportunity to impose the Treaty of Whampoa (Huangpu), the same year.

It was supplemented by a “Second Opium War,” from 1856 to 1860. To confirm the legalization of the trade in opium on the Chinese territory, wrest other ports, concessions and money through specific treaties and Tianjin Aigun (1858) and, most importantly, the Convention of Peking, October 8, 1860 . Purpose: shred your country, make it bloodless.

We have delivered a very special war, the so-called Franco-Chinese, from 1883 to 1885. To wrest the province of Annam and Tonkin, and incorporate them in our colony of Indochina (1). For that, we went up to disembark in Taiwan! We have toned down the other powers were beginning not to appreciate our expansion. The cake Chinese “should be equally divided …

The Japanese took over, from 1894 to 1895. That does endless, you come outside of a war to return in another. On the one treaty to another. From concession concession. From “repair” to “repair”. In compensation for damages. The exhaustion … All these treaties dépossédaient you trade in your exterior and interior, tearing territorial concessions, gradually dépeçant your country, your exhausting Treasury.

Without arms, without financial resources, only surrounded by hostile nations. Virtually disarmed, your country has resisted. Revolts have never stopped. Your strength was courageous, heroic. Schematic classic: your resistance have been considered by the occupying powers, as terrorists, savages, barbarians, fanatics. In propaganda and the horrific repression that followed. And even in our history books today, when they talk about it …

One of the most famous rebellions is the so-called “Boxers”. Caricaturée, by propaganda in the West. Even sixty years later, in a film under the title: “55 days in Beijing” (2). It lasted from November 1899 to September 1901. Followed by a repression by the Western powers, which were added Italy and Austria-Hungary, whose atrocities still echo in your memoirs, looting, killings, torture, rape, mass.

Followed by a treaty with the conditions become tougher, “Boxer Protocol,” signed on September 7, 1901, with huge financial compensation pumping the majority of customs duties and taxes for the benefit of Western nations. Appauvrissant more treasury of the country. China has had to carry out this real racket until 1939.

In fact, until the Japanese hunt European China, to take their place. Before they are, in turn, driven out of your country, in 1945. But Westerners do not give up and have done everything possible to keep the civil war in your territory, creating, funding the maximum dissension. It was not until 1949, that you may be released and finally realize your unit. Making his own your identity. Despite an international embargo, and continuing threats from the West.

Yes. You, Chinese, are never came on our continent, in our country, with bold weapon superior to ours, we impose consumption of opium or heroin. Enter our internal and external trade. Take our ports and provinces. To inflict damage and repairs colossal, to be paid over several generations. Semant desolations, looting, divisions, civil wars.

We, though. During a century …

So Sorry, again.

Mille excuses for the idiots who claim that Tibet is not China

Some claim that Tibet is not an integral part of China. Do they want to. They are ignorant. Their history books are empty, and information programs on radio or television are composed, mostly, people paid for the propaganda antichinoise.

I know a dunce who makes no effort to get out of his ignorance, and exercise their critical spirit, becomes a fanatic. We must face the facts: we are no longer a country of the Enlightenment, but a country of fanatics. At least, in the oligarchy that rules it.

Tibet is one of the provinces of your country for centuries. Officially, at least since the 13 th century (3). Then they make quibbles: it would be “too new”, not “conclusive”. Forgetting or concealing, that we, Western countries, France in particular, have annexed new territories, recently. What do you want, imbued with its strength, the West feels any permit …

I am not going to talk about our European neighbours who claim the same thing. Examples? … Denmark, ensures that Greenland is after killing Danish national culture and identity eskimos. Or, Britain, which believes that the Falklands in the South Atlantic, which actually belong to Argentina, are also British that the Tower of London. Still others … The examples are too numerous for all these possessions, regarded as naturally integrated into a Western nation, while they were invaded militarily. In a word, stolen from their people real.

What can be said, however, of those countries trained in 19 ° and 20 ° century, the United States of America, Australia, New Zealand, from the extermination of their people Hometown: Americans or skin Reds, Aborigines, Maoris, Polynesians? …

No, I want to say something about my country, France. By giving a few recent examples of our history.

Corsica, which was an independent country, was invaded militarily and attached to France in 1769, in the late 18 th century (4). The first gesture from France was to remove the Corsican University, in the city of Corte. It’s always the first act of “cultural genocide”: delete language of a people. Since then, the resistance against this connection, does not seem to falter …

We have acquired other french department, still later: Savoy and the county of Nice. Annexed to France by the Treaty of Turin, in the late 19 th century, in 1860 (5). Who are currently three departments: Savoie and Haute-Savoie Alpes Maritimes. It seems that Savoie, nowadays, some do not always this annexation …

But France would not ever questioned the Frenchness of these departments, related to its immediate borders. But, other areas which I would like to talk, which are thousands of miles from my country. The largest in the southern hemisphere. And that claims french.

Tahiti, Polynesia capital of the “French” in the Pacific Ocean, since we occupy that we have seized in 1842, and officially regarded as a colony in 1880. It is in the southern hemisphere, with 17,100 km of France. Twelve hours of jet lag. More than one hundred islands, an area comparable to that of Europe: 2,500,000 km2. This has nothing to do with France, nor by its thousand-year history, nor its culture, but our circles say that if Colonial. We opprimons his people who want to live free. The Polynesians have, moreover, a movement that seeks independence. But we arrange to stifle this aspiration and policy formulation.

New Caledonia, with its capital Noumea, which has overtaken France as colony, officially in 1853. A 18,000 km from France. Nine hours of jet lag, in the summer. It is an archipelago with a large island and other smaller ones. The people of origin is Melanesian, the Kanaks. They call their country Kanaky, not New Caledonia. They have always resisted, heroically. They want a free, independent.

But their country contains nickel. Many nickel. This is one of the top three producers in the world. France does not want to hear about their independence. Colonization was very hard: cultural genocide, massacres, humiliation. In 1931, at the exhibition colonial France led force of the Kanaks to expose them, like animals, in an enclosure with boxes (instead of cages) …

There are also other islands, with strong independence movements. As the island of Reunion in the Indian Ocean, east of Africa, 9,000 km from France. In the Caribbean Sea, on the side of Cuba, Martinique to 6,800 km, 6,700 km in Guadeloupe. On the South American continent, bordering Brazil, French Guiana, at 7,000 km. Still others, Mayotte, at 8,000 km, in the Comoros archipelago, northwest of Madagascar. Still others … I stop …

The idiots who say that Tibet is not China, you jureront hand on heart that all these distant possessions, from other civilizations on other continents, in other hemispheres, militarily invaded and annexed arbitrarily : c’est la France! …

Evidence that stupidity knows no borders, nor hemispheres, or mileages. As for history, it would be too much to ask …

A thousand apologies for the cynics who claim you give lessons in “Human Rights”

I shall not dwell on this point. So it is ridiculous. Cynics have the particularity of having neither values nor conscience. How to take seriously their statements “beautiful souls” on human rights, human dignity and the like …

Those who say nothing for the inmates in French prisons. Men that have been living in cloaques in premises among the most unhealthy in the world. Where madness and suicide are often the only exit doors …

Those who say nothing about the indignity with which immigrants are treated, expelled because they are “undocumented”. Immigrants from countries that we have colonized and pillaged for centuries. We did not even recognizing the belly …

Those who say nothing when the U.S. government legalizes torture, known as waterboarding. Supplice popularized by the Inquisition and later by the Gestapo during the German occupation during the Second World War, as the “agony of the bath” …

Those who are silent on Guantanamo and Abu Ghaïb the greatest centers of torture in the world. Nothing about the thousands of Iraqis interned without trial, without their families know whether they are alive or dead …

Those who say nothing before the destruction of Iraq, based on lies, with a million deaths and suffering unspeakable …

Those who say nothing against sending troops to Afghanistan, based, like the invasion of Iraq on lies. With the dead civilians, many of them children, each month …

Those who are silent on the crimes against humanity committed on a daily basis in Palestine, in the Gaza Strip, with massacres of civilians and children. Nothing about the 11,000 Palestinian prisoners, without trial, a third of them children and adolescents …

Those who s’étouffent on our colonial past, soaked with nameless horrors.

The cynicism of the West, its caste in power, is ongoing. It is the foundation of his political philosophy …

Respecting human rights … If you, Chinese, have to be done, we, Western and french, have just as much. That hand in hand, in humility and mutual esteem, we must work on.

And, not spitting over you, to give us a clear conscience. As we spat on athletes holding the Olympic flame on the streets of Paris …

Mille excuses for our media whose arrogance only by the dishonesty

Media “free”? … Was do not worry about it. I saw a TV presenter apostropher one of your countrymen, working in one of your news agencies in Paris: “Do you understand the anger of french ?…”. The cap: speak on behalf of all french!

We are used to their campaigns of vilification, defamation when it is not against the Arabs, against Putin and the Russians, if not against Chavez and Cuba, it is against the Islam and Muslims … Everything is good to excite the anger and contempt against “scapegoats”. This is the only policy of development and growth here. Maintaining fear and contempt, with respect to the “Other” …

With few exceptions, they are not “free”. They belong to financial and industrial groups, and do, when it comes to foreign policy, as propaganda. Then, these media are merely conveying, as you understand it, a propaganda campaign antichinoise.

Propaganda dictated by lobbies, backstage. Assenée in arrogance. Arrogance, which is only insolence “sold”. They do not, they misinformation. That’s all they can do. We are many french to say, the unfortunate. Here is what we call the “thinking” …

If they were honest, before any discussion, what I quoted by historical standards, it would have recalled their programmes, their “documentary”, or their articles. They would then have dealt with the subject in earnest, knowing that before looking at the straw in the eye of the neighbour should look at the beam in his own.

And then if they were honest, they would have addressed your country, your people and your government with respect. But do they know that respect for others is the foundation for dialogue?

Indeed, “dialogue”, they did nothing to be done. Are not they paid, above all, to misinform and indoctrinating …

All my best wishes for success in the Olympic Games in Beijing

Our President of the Republic wants to discuss with your leaders of the “situation” in Tibet, and the “behavior” of your government. This will probably fruitful exchanges.

You speak, certainly, separation of religion and politics in France: secularism. France is a country rigorous in terms of secularism. He will present the french model, which we are proud. This model could help to bring to reason some members of the Buddhist clergy.

We have a law, which dates from 1905, which has allowed us to serve our clergy and religious, a religion did not need to interfere in the political conduct of our nation, much less dictate the political line. The Buddhist clergy feudal expected to sign an agreement of this kind, devoted to hi souls and the prayers, instead of worrying about their heritage and its political role. And act on behalf of foreign powers …

This secularism has recently been strengthened by a law about “the ban on religious signs at school.” If you inhale, the young monks wished to study, too, in public schools in the country, will have to abandon their robes and come in jeans with a jacket.

We are also very strict about the cap on his head: no turban, kippa or veil. At home, the ostentatious religious sign “shaved heads.” To avoid this, it will be necessary to require the wearing of a hat or a cap on the premises of schools, including classroom … But our President will explain the details: it is one of the designers, with its political partners.

In return, we hope that your government will benefit from this exchange of view to ask, as a priority, the problems of all these territories that are thousands of miles from France and who want their independence. Territories, countries and nations, which are currently authentic settlements, despite the names, seeking respect for their culture and identity of their peoples authentic. Maoris, Polynesians, Melanesians, Kanaks, particularly …

Yes, it should put an end to cultural genocide and economic exploitation of these peoples.

Thank you.

It is with great joy that I retrouverai in Beijing for the Olympic Games.

With my best wishes for success and …

… My Friends.
