It was supposed to be a “Peace Conference”, so the winner of the Nobel Peace Prize the Dali Lama, really had no place in a sham about “Peace” that was really just promotional stunt for Soccer in South Africa.
So the Dali Lama was told he would not be welcome to come to the future conference even though he’d been invited by Representatives of the very three South Africans that received the same Nobel Peace Prize themselves. Desmond Tutu, Representatives of de Klerk and of course Nelson Mandela . Now Tutu says he’s ashamed that his country has done this embarrassing thing. Imagine being the home of these Moral Giants and “kow-towing” to China’s scurrilous command. I couldn’t agree more.
