Dalai Lama – Not so Zen

Dalaï-Lama - Pas si ZENDalai Lama – Not so Zen by Maxime Vivas is set to be released in French on August 18th. The new book goes in depth into the Dalai Lama’s CIA/NED connections and the history of feudal theocracy in Tibet under the Dalai Lama’s rule. A few French media outlets have already written articles about the book.

A few excerpts from the book are below (sorry this is a Google translation)

The Dalai Lama was also subsidised for decades by the CIA and the NED, which sponsors a myriad of organisations responsible for undermining China via Tibet. But what is the NED? The central information and subversion U.S. cannot directly fund organisations or programs of this nature for fear of being discredited. It should, where possible, use the relay as the NED, which is not a private agency, but government. His money comes from the State Department, which is a branch of the Presidency in charge of foreign policy, like the CIA. In Congress, Republicans and Democrats are in phase with respect to the activities of the CIA. The government decided, Senators (all factions) vote, the shell companies cashing and redistribute, “The NED was created fifteen years ago to make public what the CIA has done covertly for decades.”

The first president of the NED, Carl Gershman, admitted in 1986: “It would be terrible for the democratic groups around the world to be seen as subsidized by the CIA […] This is because we could not continue to do the foundation [the NED] was created. “For his part, Allen Weinstein, who worked in the drafting of articles of the NED in 1983, told the Washington Post, September 22, 1991:” Much of what we’re doing now was done in secret by the CIA Twenty-five years ago. “In order to intervene with the elections in Nicaragua that saw the defeat of the Sandinistas in February 1990, the CIA and the NED had established a civic front says (Via Civica). In Venezuela, the NED’s budget had increased fourfold in the months before the coup of April 2002 against President Hugo Chavez. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, we saw the NED stir in many Eastern European countries which could put into place a pro-NATO government hostile toward Russia.

Most of the historical figures the CIA have served at one time or another on the board or management of the NED, including John Negroponte, appointed ambassador to Iraq, then big chief of all intelligence United States (as such, it was he who was responsible for appointing the director of the CIA). The NED website offers three files on its action towards China: “China (Hong Kong)”, “China (Tibet)”, “China (Xinjiang).” Not to mention the covert operations (which, by definition, we know nothing), the CIA comes to Tibet, via the NED, through no less than sixteen multiple programs it funds openly […]

On many occasions The U.S. propaganda has demonstrated its ability to speak ironically, to call “democracies” the worst bloody dictatorships and to advocate freedom by multiplying the prisons around the world, Bagram (Afghanistan) Abu Ghraib (Iraq) through Guantanamo (Cuba) which must be added the impressive number of prisons in the United States itself, and “floating prisons” in secret. Incidentally, according to a study by the International Centre for Prison Studies at the University of London King’s College, “with two million inmates, seven hundred and fourteen prisoners per hundred thousand inhabitants, the United States has the highest rate of incarceration in the world, ahead of Russia and Belarus. ”

But back to dollars. Since his flight from China, the Dalai Lama has benefited from, but not boasted about, grants from the CIA. From 1959 to 1972, 104 to 20,000 dollars have been personally paid each year. He has long denied the truth. In 1998, the documents mentioned, the “government” of the Dalai Lama had to give a public statement, merely to deny that His Holiness would have “personally” used the money, while his representative in Washington said he was not aware of this grant, or its use. The links between the CIA and the Dalai Lama, however, he conceded: “It’s a secret revealed, we do not dispute. ”

The Dalai Lama also received one million seven hundred thousand dollars to carry out his international political activities. Subsequently, the same amount was paid through the NED. In Le Monde Diplomatique, Martine Bulard writes: “[…] the financing of the organization by the CIA Tibetan is not the fantasy of the Chinese Communists: in the sixties, the U.S. had paid one million seven hundred thousand dollars, and the investigation of the New York Times (“Dalai Lama group says it got money from CIA,” October 2, 1998) speaks of an annual grant – small, yet significant – from 104 to 20,000 dollars paid directly to religious leader, who has denied receiving it.”
