Most people believe that we have souls, but know little about when and how a soul begins to dominate a human body. We may find some clues in a story in the book “Zibuyu Volume II” written by Yuan Mei, a scholar and writer who lived in the Qing Dynasty (A.D. 1636-1912).

According to the story, an old peasant lived in the Jinshan area of Shanghai during the Qing Dynasty. One night, on the first day of the month, he dreamed that a magistrate dressed in green visited him, bringing along an official document.… READ MORE...

Fan Zhongyan was a prominent politician and a famed poet and writer during the Northern Song Dynasty (A.D. 970-1127). A saying of his, “Be the first to feel concern for others and the last to enjoy yourself,” has become immortal in history and serves as a true reflection of his life.

During the second year of Emperor Renzong’s rule in 1033, there was widespread famine. Fan Zhongyan petitioned the court for assistance, but the court turned a deaf ear.

Fan asked Emperor Renzong face to face: “What would you do if there was no food in the court?… READ MORE...

Unprecedented Crimes Against Humanity Continue Today

“This new form of evil on this planet” has been jointly committed by the military, police and doctors in China.
“This new form of evil on this planet” has been jointly committed by the military, police and doctors in China.

In concentration camps throughout China, practitioners of the spiritual discipline Falun Gong have been detained with the approval of the Chinese communist regime since 1999 simply for practicing their belief. During the spring of 2006, much evidence of the most ghastly aspect of the persecution emerged. Falun Gong practitioners have been executed for their organs.

The existence of forced organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners for transplantation has been proven beyond any doubt. From 2002 to 2006, more than 41,500 organ transplants were done in China.… READ MORE...

Text of David Kilgour’s speech to the Knesset of Israel

17 February, 2014

Honourable members of the Knesset,

Permit me to thank you for the welcome given to the recent delegation from Canada. The visit and our prime minister’s address to the Knesset were widely reported across our country.

Permit me to repeat four excerpts from the speech:

“Canada supports Israel fundamentally because it is right to do so … The special friendship between Canada and Israel is rooted in shared values … Israel is the only country in the Middle East which has long anchored itself in the ideals of freedom, democracy and the rule of law … when (universal values) are threatened anywhere, they are threatened everywhere.”

When human dignity is denied in a major way in China, it can threaten us all, so I hope the legislators and peoples in both our countries will do what is correct without misplaced fear.… READ MORE...

Europe Must Help End Forced Organ Harvesting in China

europe
By Edward McMillan-Scott

On Dec. 12, 2013, the European Parliament passed a resolution (that I sponsored) unequivocally condemning the Chinese regime’s forced organ harvesting, especially from Falun Gong prisoners of conscience, and calling for an EU investigation into the practice.

The same week, a U.S. congressional sub-committee on Asia & Pacific adopted a parallel resolution, and a 1.5-million signature petition was presented to the United Nations.

This global response came on top of a series of similar resolutions by parliaments and professional associations in recent times.

These actions are ending the credibility gap about the genocidal crime of selecting and killing prisoners, especially Falun Gong practitioners, for body parts.… READ MORE...

Secret Document of Persecution of Falun Gong Disclosed

Recently, a confidential document issued by a Mongolian 610-Office was disclosed overseas. The document asks relevant departments nationwide to collect Falun Gong practitioners’ information, for further persecution.

The document was sent by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) Committee in Mongolia. Central Leading Group on Dealing with Heretical Religions and Ministry of Public Security jointly issued the secret order. It says “get more complete information on Falun Gong Practitioners”. A new group of undercover personnel to investigate Falun Gong will be put in place.

It says information collection will start at street offices, villages then up to the next administration levels. The report must be handed in to Mongolia’s 610-Office before July 10, 2014.… READ MORE...

NEW YORK—Wang Shan Shan woke to pitch darkness at 4 in the morning to find something wet. Her water had broken. It was Valentine’s Day but her husband was far away in a distant city in China and not speaking to her. As a new refugee, with no relatives in New York City, Wang went to the next room and woke her roommate.

Her roommate called the ambulance and rode with her to the hospital. They drove past blurry nightlights, as Wang worried about health insurance in this foreign land; then, she felt a sharp pang in her heart.… READ MORE...
