(Clearwisdom.net) People used the words "astonishing secret" to describe the secret Sujiatun Concentration Camp, where agents designated by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) harvest organs from living Falun Gong practitioners and burn their bodies. It is astonishing to most people, because such crimes are unbelievable and unimaginable for most people.

When the American soldiers entered the Nazi concentration camps at the end of World War II, they were shocked, being faced with piles of dead bodies, which was completely unbelievable to them. But if they had known how the Nazis had been inciting people's hatred toward Jews and brainwashing people with the propaganda that Jewish peoples' lives were as low as ants, and had they known how the Nazis had driven Jews out of their homes and businesses and were killing them randomly, they would not have felt the horror and the violence in the concentration camps to be so unbelievable.

Similarly, perhaps the organ harvesting in Sujiatun was not a well-planned evil scheme from the very beginning, but was rather the "natural" but horrible consequence of the rampant and crazed actions of the dictators and participators of the persecution. The following points explain how such a terrible situation could come into being.

1. The existence of the concentration camp created the conditions for the crimes

Because many Falun Gong practitioners have been arrested, the labor camps and prisons are too crowded. The CCP regime even released many criminals before their sentences were reached to make room for Falun Gong practitioners. When "illegally arresting" Falun Gong practitioners, policemen weren't required to follow the official and lawful processes in many cases. Many practitioners were arrested from home and even their families didn't know where they were jailed. Many Falun Gong practitioners have "disappeared." Since 2001, the CCP has started building special prisons to hold Falun Gong practitioners long-term. They claimed that practitioners would be imprisoned until they die. Just like the Nazis killing Jews, the places where a lot of "disappeared" Falun Gong practitioners are held creates the most basic condition for the murders reported to have taken place in the Sujiatun Concentration Camp.

2. Falun Gong practitioners have been treated in the forced labor camps if as they were death row criminals

Falun Gong has been construed as the number one enemy of Jiang Zemin's gang and the CCP. Jiang tried to eliminate Falun Gong within three months, but he underestimated the power of righteous faith. So the persecutors became rampant and have escalated the persecution. They gave the orders to the prisons and labor camps such as, "Beating Falun Gong practitioners to death can be done without taking responsibility," "The deaths of Falun Gong practitioners due to torture will be counted as suicide," "After beating Falun Gong practitioners to death, the prisons or the labor camps don't need to check their identities before cremation."

3. The CCP has had a whole system of trading organs in place, from labor camps and prisons to hospitals

Actually, since the medical technology for organ transplants was developed in the 1970's, the CCP has developed a whole system of trading organs that involves hospitals and the local police units. The Chinese government also admitted in public that most of the organs for transplant are from the death row prisoners.

Since the persecution of Falun Gong was launched in 1999, hundreds of thousand of Falun Gong practitioners have been tortured in labor camps and prisons. In many incidences of persecution deaths of practitioners, family members found that organs were missing from the bodies of their loved ones. The prison doctors have also reminded the policemen not to beat practitioners' kidney area, because kidneys are useful.

This organ harvest is just the continuation of a system already in place, and it is just the extension of harvesting organs from death row prisoners to harvesting organs from Falun Gong practitioners. The labor camp guards and doctors of hospitals collaborate to harvest and sell the organs, and they all make large amounts of money from it.

4. There is no constraint by rule of law or moral standard

As the "number one enemy" of the CCP, Falun Gong practitioners have no laws to protect them. So those who persecute Falun Gong are not constrained by law. Also, using all the negative propaganda and slander that the CCP has used to brainwash the public, including the staged "Tiananmen Self-immolation Incident" that was orchestrated by Luo Gan and his gang, the CCP has instigated people's hatred towards Falun Gong to the extreme. Falun Gong practitioners' image has been distorted, portraying them as murderers, or suffering from insanity, which has made the doctors who harvest organs from Falun Gong practitioners have no moral barriers.

Practitioners' lives have been treated as not valuable at all, and as if they can be ended randomly. This is an important starting point. The nightmare of the Jewish people started with the idea that "Jewish lives are not valuable."

5. There is a large demand in the organ market

There is a big organ market in China, where there are 1.5 million uremia patients. Based on the rate of kidney transplants of uremia patients in the developed countries, the demand for kidneys in China is fifty thousand every year. Moreover, there are lots of foreigners coming to China for organ transplants. China has become the "global center for organ transplants."

According to the Ministry of Health of China, from 1993 to 2005, there have been 59,540 kidney transplants, 6,125 liver transplants and 248 heart transplants in China. The numbers of the surgeries is increasing every year. Last year, there were 2,700 and 6,000 liver and kidney transplants, respectively. Counting bone marrow, cornea and other organ transplants, there were almost ten thousand organ transplants done in China in 2005.

6. There is huge financial incentive

The number of organ transplants is one of the criteria to evaluate the hospitals. So, the hospitals try to do as many organ transplants as possible. There are 368 hospitals in China that can do kidney transplants and more than 200 hospitals that can do liver transplants. Even some not well-equipped township clinics, which can only do some basic surgeries, try to do organ transplants. The number of hospitals doing organ transplants in China is much larger than that in the USA.

More important is that these organ transplants bring huge financial benefits. On their website, China International Transplantation Network Assistance Center gives a price list:

Kidney: US$62,000
Liver: US$98,000 ~ 130,000
Lung: US$150,000 ~ 170,000
Heart: US$130,000 ~ 160,000
Cornea: US$30,000

Some doctors who are not experts also do such surgeries for money. It was reported by the TV program, The Society, from Guangdong Province Cable TV, that a medical accident in kidney transplanting was caused by a doctor who is not a urologist.

The shortage of organs is the bottleneck of this business. The persecution of Falun Gong made thousands of Falun Gong practitioners available as the sources of these organs. This most brutal evil business of modern times started with the persecution.

7. The concentration camps become the sources of live organs

Under the circumstances described above, the organ business, including the labor camps, prisons and hospitals, targeted the Falun Gong practitioners in the concentration camps. To make money, criminals will sell drugs or do other illegal things. Similarly, money also is the essential motivation for the organ harvest in the Sujiatun Concentration Camp. The difference is that criminals feel guilty about drug dealing more or less, but killing Falun Gong practitioners perfectly matches the evil desire of the CCP and Jiang's gang - eliminating Falun Gong. So, a bloody criminal system that combines making huge benefits and secretly killing innocent people was formed.

Jiang's gang previously used all kinds of implication methods to force policemen nationwide to persecute Falun Gong, but with the huge financial benefit, the organ harvest in Sujiatun connects and runs all the systems involved in the persecution, and makes the "burden" become the "money maker." We can imagine that when Jiang and Luo Gan found the advantage of this method, they must have tried their best to promote this form of persecution and asked for the cooperation from all parties involved.

8. The self-paralysis of the lack of morals and conscience

It is a big challenge of conscience for everyone involved in this organ harvesting system. But the self-paralysis of the conscience in each link of the chain of this system reduces the moral impact. For example, the prospective organ recipient is eager to extent his or her life, so he would not be willing to find out the source of the organ. To him, the most important thing is to keep his life. The surgeon also pretends that he doesn't know the source. To him, someone provides him with the organ, and the patient is lying on the table, so his job is just to do the surgery. To the doctors who harvest the organs, what lies in front of them are the Falun Gong practitioners who are about to die due to brutal torture. The doctors may imagine them to be "insane" people or believe them to be someone on death row. To the doctors, this person is about to die sooner or later, and there is no difference between killing one or killing many. To the policemen involved, money is the most important, and they will do anything for money. Think about it, policeman He Xuejian in Zhuozhou, Hebei Province raped a practitioner, a woman the same age as his mother, in front of another policeman. Gao Rongrong from Shenyang, had her beautiful face totally destroyed by policemen, and she was finally tortured to death. What kind of things cannot be done by those who are trained by Jiang's gang and have completely lost their conscience? Is there any conscience left in their minds?

For those who don't believe the existence of persecution, Sujiatun Concentration Camp is the best proof

Since the very beginning, Falun Gong practitioners have tried their best to expose the evil, brutal persecution taking place in China. But many people don't believe them and are not moved at all. It is their not-believing that has intensified the persecution and instigated the CCP to continue violating human rights, all the way to the illicit organ harvesting. Such an astonishing crime!

If people understand the process of the CCP's escalating the persecution, the organ harvest system between prisons, labor camps and hospitals, and understand the CCP's propaganda and slandering of Falun Gong, the evil desire of Jiang's gang and their followers' pursuit of money, then the Sujiatun Concentration Camp would not be so astonishing. People will also understand that it may be the natural consequence of all the evil crimes of the persecution and a foul system already in place.

During the persecution and organ harvest, the CCP and Jiang Zemin's gang are satisfied, the doctors and policemen are making a fortune, but people of justice and the heavens are incensed. Therefore the evil cannot be far away from its end now.
