“I Love George Bush”: Dalai Lama

I believe it is good for the Dalai Lama to love all people but with that love should come some sort of responsibility. Like the responsibility to point out that torture and war crimes are not acceptable. There is a responsibility for religious leaders to do more than just write and recite platitudes.
The Dalai has been hypocritical. He touted Iraq as a just war and made no comments against it. But when it comes to the treatment of Tibet, he screams long and hard about the injustice and brutalization. The people of Tibet are no more important than the people of Iraq, Afghanistan, Palestine, Iran, or any other peoples. All peoples are important.
As a spiritual leader accepted by the world, the Dalai Lama needs to go back to study Buddhism and the Sermon on the Mount.

The Dalai Lama has stunned left-leaning followers by proclaiming “I love President George W. Bush“.

The admission came about through the Tibetian-leader-in-exile’s discussion on Buddhism and terrorism at the Madhavrao Scindia Memorial Lecture. The Dalai Lama admitted that non-violence cannot really work towards dealing with terrorists because “their minds are closed.” The only way to deal with terrorism is through prevention, according to the Dalai Lama.

Terrorism is also the worst kind of violence, the Dalai Lama said. “They (terrorists) are very brilliant and educated…but a strong ill feeling is bred in them.”
