The Dhimmi Dalai Lama

The modern Dhimmi – a non-Muslim apologist for Islam

The Dalai Lama is revered around the world, and not just by his Tibetan Buddhist followers who believe he’s the incarnation of the Buddha of Compassion. He is a recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize who preaches non-violence toward the Chinese communists who invaded and now run his country. The Dalai Lama, living in India, is also a tragic Ghandi-esque political leader-in-exile whose government is not recognized by any nation. He describes himself as a simple monk.

The Dalai Lama has accumulated much good will and his influence is far-reaching. He has no power from material wealth, no army, no country. His power is spiritual. This is why in this age of decadence, many people respect and listen to him and believe what he says.

Mischief or Jihad?
This year, at a lecture at Lehigh University, the Dalai Lama said that “it’s totally wrong, unfair” to label Islam a violent religion.

This is not the first time he publicly has made such remarks about Islam and its sixth pillar, jihad.

In 2006 in San Francisco, after getting a desperate message for help from American Muslims, the Dalai Lama attended an inter-faith event titled A Gathering of Hearts Illuminating Compassion and spoke out for the “Religion of Peace.” There he defended Islam and said that only ‘a few mischievous people’ are to blame.

In June, 2008 in his role of political/religious leader, his pronouncements at the Delhi Conference on World Terrorism were shocking. Once again, the Dalai Lama defends the Muslim religion and says that:

· Muslims are one of the most peace loving people . . .
· Muslims cannot be terrorists. If a person is a terrorist, he cannot be a Muslim.
· Some mischievous people and their deeds generalize (the) whole religion. Because of these incidents, it creates (the) impression that Muslims are militants. It is wrong.

Examine what the Dalai Lama says. His few mischievous people have killed thousands of people around the world in the past ten years. And again, he calls men who blow up themselves and other innocent humans – mischievous. He says it is mischief to maim and murder? No, mischief is a child being naughty. Blowing up innocent people is evil!

Why does the Dalai Lama think that a person who engages in terrorism can’t be a Muslim when the jihadis brag publicly how they kill for Allah, and quote verses from the Koran that command Muslims to instill terror in kafirs’ hearts, to smite them at their necks (behead them like Daniel Pearl).

He also said, “Now days to some people, the Muslim tradition appears more militant. And I feel that’s totally wrong. Muslims like any other traditions [have the] – same message, same practice. That is a practice of compassion.” The Dalai Lama received this information on Islam from his Muslim friends, not from knowledge of the actual doctrine.

Ignoring Islamic Doctrine
Unfortunately, the Dalai Lama, who feels Muslims aren’t militant and who listens to his Muslim friends, is the one who is wrong. He repeats his mantras about Islam without his investigating the doctrinal root causes of the tactic of terror and its ‘mischievous’ perpetrators.

At the New Delhi conference he said: “Every action comes from some motivation. We have to address and deal with the motivation which creates terrorist actions.”

Islam’s actions are motivated by their sacred texts of the Koran, the Hadith, the traditions of Mohammed and the Sira, the biography of Mohammed. As a Buddhist scholar, surely the Dalai Lama understands how the foundational texts of any religion are the root cause and the prime motivator for the words and deeds of the religious follower. But the Dalai Lama seems to be ignorant of the sacred texts of Islam and the doctrine of Mohammed and his god, Allah. Otherwise, how could he, a Buddhist who espouses pacificism and non-violence, defend Islam, a political ideology of violence and war? Now, how does he, a rationalist and scholar, justify not knowing the Islamic doctrine?

The Dalai Lama uses hearsay, what Muslims tell him, not factual, doctrinal or historic evidence to back up his words. And says we generalize bad things about the Muslims. However, close examination of the thoughts, speech and deeds of Mohammed, the perfect man Muslims are encouraged to imitate, shows that Muslims can threaten to take our lives (as they did to the Dalai Lama in 2007), lie to us, steal from us, attack and murder us. We have proof in the doctrine and the actions of recent events. This violence and aggression originate in the Islamic trilogy of the Koran, Sira and Hadith. There is no generalization. There is only the truth. Islamic doctrine breeds violence and aggression.

The Actual Doctrine – of Dualism
The Dalai Lama says that just because some Muslims are violent, all of them aren’t. Islam has only one nature, he contends and it can’t be violent. Therefore, according to his point of view, the jihadis practice a false doctrine. However, Islam has two “natures.” There are two Korans and two Mohammeds, the Meccan or religious and the Medinan, the political, including its dualistic ethics with one set of rules for Muslims and one set for unbelievers, kafirs. This dualism also includes acting nice when Islam is weak and acting violent when it is strong. The Dalai Lama denies this dualistic reality of Islam due to his ignorance of the actual doctrine.

The Dalai Lama doesn’t know that according to Islam, he is the worst kind of kafir, a polytheist, who is cursed and sent to hell by Allah. No, he maintains an arrogant ignorance and says that all religions are good. That’s ridiculous. Students of history and anthropology know that many ancient cultures sacrificed their own loved ones due to religious belief. All religions are not necessarily good!

But the Dalai Lama’s greatest intellectual failing is that he confuses cause and effect. He acts and speaks as if Muslims create Islam, that they are the cause and Islam is the effect. But actually, it is the doctrine of Islam that creates the Muslims. The doctrine creates those ‘mischievous few’ who desire to kill kafirs in the way of Allah. His greatest moral failing is that he arrogantly remains ignorant and passes this ignorance on to the world giving it the stamp of his spiritual authority.

The cure for his ignorance is the understanding of dualism and submission. Islam means submission and the Dalai Lama submits.

His Friends
Let’s look at the Dalai Lama’s moderate Muslim friends that advise him on Islam at the conferences on terrorism and inter-faith love fests and lectures on enlightenment. One of them in the U.S. is Sheik Hamza Yusuf who backed Nation of Islam murderer Rap Brown and the blind Egyptian Sheik Rahman, the mastermind of the 1993 World Trade Tower bombing. He associates with members of militant Islamic organizations like the ICNA and the Muslim Brotherhood’s Muslim American Society.

The Dalai Lama’s high profile friend at the Gathering was Sayyid Syeed, a high level member of the ISNA, which has close ties to Saudi Arabia supported organizations as well as the Muslim Brotherhood in the U.S. The Muslim Brotherhood wants to replace the U.S. Constitution with Islamic sharia law. Here is the Brotherhood motto:

Allah is our objective. The Prophet is our leader.
The Qur’an is our law. Jihad is our way.
Dying in the way of Allah is our highest hope.

In New Delhi, his Muslim friends came from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Shri Lanka, Indonesia, and other bastions of freedom and peaceful co-existence to a conference on terrorism sponsored by the largest mosque in India, Jama Masjid. Ahmed Bukhari, who is the imam there, stated publicly that the United States is a terrorist (nation), that the Jews are responsible for the 9/11 attacks, and that Until Bin Laden is proved guilty by Islamic law, Muslims should stand with him.

The Dalai Lama calls these men with terrorist ties his friends (when their doctrine says they must not be friends with kafirs) and proudly defends the faith that fuels them.

The Dhimmi
As Balbir Punj writes in his article “Islam in the Eyes of the Dalai Lama”:

There can be no more bitter irony than a Buddhist monk defending Islam as a religion of compassion. Except for mountainous pockets like Ladakh, Tibet, and the Chittagong Hills Tracts, Buddhism disappeared from India under the Sword of Islam.

Islam destroys all vestiges of Buddhism where ever it goes. It may take centuries but eventually, like the Bamiyan Buddhas, all traces of its practice will be reduced to rubble and erased from history. Allah says Buddhists are less than the Jews and Christians whom he calls apes and pigs.

But for now, Mohammed and Allah only want the Dalai Lama’s goodwill. And he gives it eagerly, freely and lovingly, ignoring discriminating wisdom as he moves forward, taking his followers down the way of dhimmitude, a path of suffering and annihilation. He is now officially a deluded dhimmi whose Buddhist ethics fall away as he defends an Islamic doctrine of death and destruction.

Of course the Dalai Lama is only acting like a typical politician, but due to his spiritual stature, we expect something better from him. We expect the truth. We expect a bit of discriminating wisdom. Surely he knows the history of Buddhism in Central Asia. Surely he knows that Buddhists cannot live and practice their religion freely in Islamic countries. But he doesn’t speak out about these things.

The Dalai Lama could remain silent but he speaks out in favor of Islam at every possible public event. It is not clear why he so willingly takes on the role of the deceiver. But, whatever the reasons, he gives refuge to our enemies who are his enemies too. Shame on the Dalai Lama!

    Please mention Nalanda. It was the foundation and centre of Buddhism and Buddhist teaching. It held a 9 storey library which was the largest in the world at that time. Scholars travelled from as far away as China to study there.
    When the Muslim conqueror arrived there he asked “Is there a Quran in there?” On receiving the answer “No” he ordered it to be burned to the ground. There were so many papers it burned for several months.
    Do you know where many of those teachings were preserved? They were thankfully stored away in remote monasteries in Tibet, I believe.
    And where is Nalanda now? Where is that great stream of Buddhism in Northern India? Did they just go away on holiday? Or just changed their minds, decided that Buddhism was a mistake, Islam had got it right, and ‘changed sides’?
    Give me a break, Mr Lama.

    DALAI LAMA is right as tens of thousands of Jews and so many Rabies are also right. They are saying that Muslims and Arabs are forced by the West to react, to react desperately against injustices and atrocities inflicted upon them by, first, brutally colonizing them and then by installing the illegal and immoral Zionist entity of Israel in the heart of Muslim world. Otherwise Muslims and Arabs would never have resorted to such desperate means of resistance. The God fearing Jews and Rabies are also saying that prior to this injustices, when Muslims were the world’s super powers during which time the world, especially the Jews, enjoyed peace, security, and dignity under the rule and authority of Muslims, and the Jews were persecuted for generations by the West and Christians, let alone what Hitler and his people did to them. That peace and the relationship of dignity and honor with Muslims and Arabs would have continued to these days, the West and the Jews would have been in much secure and at peace with Muslims and Arabs had the West and the devilish Zionists not committed such injustice and atrocities upon them.
    The immoral you, the criminal-hearted people like you, know very well about the crime you have committed, leaving Arabs and Muslims with no options but to desperately react to such inhuman and barbaric behavior of you, yet pretending that you have not done anything and that the Muslims and Arabs are doing everything to create this situation of un-peace in world today. Just contemplate for a moment, if you did not commit such crime of inflicting injustice and atrocities upon the innocent victims, what would have been the situation of the world today! It would be in total peace and happiness.
    You know it well that a desperate reaction to atrocities and injustice is not a crime, you would have done the same, may be worst, but sine your heart is full of evil, you are not fearing God. That is why you, the colonial minded human beings and the Zionists are joined together and behaving this way, yet condemning the victims. Only you can be like this because you have neither the true faith in your heart nor clean human character, evident in what you are doing, talking, and promoting. I can only pray that may God give you the fear of His action that is yet to visit you.

    Well Wisher.
