Two Ridiculous Remarks by the Jiang Zemin Regime during the APEC Summit

October 25, 2001 |   By Fei Ming

(Clearwisdom.net) The Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) summit held in Shanghai attracted reporters from many countries. During the conference, Zhang Qiyue, a media spokeswoman for the Jiang Zemin regime, was questioned by a foreign reporter. When asked why the homepages of some foreign media could not be browsed from the computers at the conference's News Center, Zhang was quoted by Agence France Presse (AFP) as saying, "Perhaps the internet data exchange encountered some problem, which I have no idea." Her reply aroused a jeer of laughter from reporters. Obviously, the reporters had already gotten used to the spokesperson's lies, and no longer felt angry or shocked at her evasive answer, but simply treated it as complete nonsense.

The well-known fact is that the Jiang Zemin regime blocks the internet, seals off communication, and deprives the populace of their right to know the truth. Among all types of information, what the Jiang regime fears most is the truth about Falun Gong. During the past two years of Jiang's persecution, Falun Gong practitioners in and outside China have been truthfully introducing Falun Gong to the public by all means. They also, in a peaceful and good-willed manner, have been exposing the Jiang regime's propaganda and deceit, at the same time revealing all sorts of its evil conduct in persecuting innocent people. This is what Jiang Zemin and his accomplices who have committed countless crimes fear most.

Just recently, another Jiang regime spokesperson told an even more deplorable joke. This time, the player was not Zhang Qiyue, who had already embarrassed herself in front of the reporters, but instead, another professional liar, Sun Yuxi. This spokesman declared that anthrax germs, which have been bringing a lot of panic to people in the US, were discovered in mail containing Falun Gong truth materials.

First of all, the fact that anthrax-bearing mail containing Falun Gong truth materials itself rules out the possibility that it was done by Falun Gong practitioners. This point is self-evident. Since it was not done by Falun Gong practitioners, then who did it? We need simply think: who most hates Falun Gong and has spared no effort in framing and slandering Falun Gong and instigating the public's hatred towards Falun Gong? Who wants to take advantage of the international community's counter-terrorism alliance to attempt to justify another wave of persecution against Falun Gong in the name of fighting terrorism? Who is fearful of the dissemination of the truth of Falun Gong and would not hesitate to use deadly poison to terrify those who are given the truth? Who is implementing state-terrorism against its own citizens by dealing with defenseless common people with the rule "deaths from beating are to be treated as suicides?" Who is creating chaos and attempting to shift the media attention away from China's human rights situation just as international media zoom in on Shanghai?

Within two short days, Jiang Zemin's associates lied twice in the face of the international media. These kind of crude remarks should make them embarrassed. Let's wait and see what laughable farce they'll come up with next time, and which professional liar will perform the task.
