MONTREAL, April 4 /CNW Telbec/ - In a statement released today, Rael, leader and founder of the
International Raelian Movement, had harsh words for those making war in
"Shouldn't a Nobel Peace Prize recipient like Obama have the honesty to
return his prize after leading this attack on Libya and killing the
civilians he claimed to protect? He asked, adding that leaders of the
world's major powers are once again proving that they're afflicted with
profound mental confusion."
"While 300,000 homeless people desperately wait for relief in Japan and
a nuclear power plant pollutes the entire planet with radiation that
will cause millions of deaths, they're using their technical means and
their billions to bomb Libya, he said. If all the ships and funds
turned into smoke by this illegal aggression against an independent
state were to be used in Japan, it would, for the first time, point out
some usefulness of the military forces and show real solidarity with
the civilians who suffer."
He added, the presidents of countries in the United Nations Security
Council that voted for intervention in Libya should be prosecuted for
crimes against humanity in case nuclear disaster in Japan is not
avoided. In that event, there would not be just a few thousand victims
but millions of deaths to be expected, if not tens of millions. The
United Nations would then have completely failed its mission of
protecting civilian populations from real genocides. And the presidents
of the countries making up the U.N. Security Council would forever
carry the responsibility of having attacked a country at a time when
they could have instead focused all their resources on Japan to
neutralize the nuclear plant when it was still controllable."
Rael said Western leaders aren't being honest about why they are at war
"The pretext of protecting civilian populations is totally fallacious,
he said. Even if a brutal regime commits the crime of killing a few
hundred revolutionaries, that doesn't compare with the hundreds of
thousands of civilians who need help in Japan. And that help wouldn't
threaten anyone's sovereignty."
Rael went on to explain why Libya was singled out for aggression by the
West when it fails to help the suffering civilians of other countries.
"It's clear that if China were to go through a new Tiananmen Square,
with a few hundred or even a few thousand students killed, no one would
lift a finger, he said. "They intervene in Libya only because they're
sure of their overwhelming superiority there. So immense is their
cowardice that they attack only the weak, under the pretext of
Rael said the pretext of protecting civilians with a no-fly zone is even
more fallacious and hypocritical.
"Why isn't there a no-fly zone over the Gaza Strip? he asked. "There are
civilian populations to protect there as well. Are they less important
than the Libyan people? Or is it because Israel is untouchable even
when it massacres civilians?
Rael then issued a plea to those participating in the war.
"I ask all Western countries to evacuate all Western armed forces
deployed in and around Libya and that they send them to help Japan
re-house the homeless and solve the problems at the nuclear power
plant. It's the only way they could prove they're really concerned
about the fate of the world's civilian populations and not about oil.
