然而，繼1936年德國曾借著奧運會的效應成功地掩蓋了其法西斯本質之后，她再一次受到了空前嚴峻的考驗。而您在2002年4月的一次表態似乎已經解決了這個問題；您強調：“國際奧委會將盡其所能确保人權獲得尊重……如果他們未能遵守解善人權的承諾，可能會失去二00八年奧運的舉辦權……我們深信奧運會使中國的人權獲得解善。國際奧委會是一個負責任的組織……我們將會有所行動。”這番話使廣大因奧運而遭到“厄運”的弱勢群體（如千百万不愿加入愛國（党）教會而在自己家里聚會的基督徒，鍛煉身體的百姓，求生的小販，被強行拆遷的北京市民等等）看到了正義的曙光，人格的力量！人們紛紛贊您為奧運精神的捍衛者、真正的人權衛士！我們也緊接著于5月2日就中國借迎接奧運之名秘密印發机密文件，侵犯人權的證据給您寫信，您的辦公廳主任Christophe DE KEPPER先生替您回信表示：“信中的內容已得到适時的注意，并且將會進一步研究”。對此我深表敬意！
机密 吉 林 省 公 安 廳 文件
根据我們從2000年秋開始，由兩万多名基督徒對中國22省207個大小城市及無數個鄉村的56万多名家庭教會基督徒所進行的走訪調查（由于很多人怕說或不說，故只能是一個不夠完全的，低于實際受害人數的保守數字），以實證資料統計出來的數字顯示：中國自改革開放以來，在陸千万以上的家庭教會信徒中至少有270万人被任意拘捕過（即每22人中就有一個）、 44万人被判勞改勞教、 750人被通緝追捕、20 万人被迫离家外逃或失蹤、1万多人被迫害致死、2万多人被酷刑至殘、13万人被監視居住、112万人被勒索性罰款。
很顯然：今日中國宗教迫害的力度及廣度已明顯地超過了已往傳統的政治迫害。我們的网站： ， . 上有更多旨在陰謀迫害宗教信徒的國家机密及真相；而且，從去年十月下旬至今我們每天公布一起警察任意拘捕,勒索及毒打信徒的“合法犯罪”事件。為進一步說明，將几幅基督徒冒著坐牢及生命危險才送出來的反映家庭教會基督徒被殘害致死，被迫藏進地道、山洞、密林与曠野里聚會的照片及官方證据：中國河北省保定市（2002年8月）“為迎接党的十六大胜利召開，創造良好的社會環境”而“制止基督教非法活動的”文件，以及針對天主教的絕密文件（2002年6月）等一并送上。其中對“……境外神職人員調查工作的通知”（2002年7月）也應引起國際社會的注意：因為沒有隱藏在各地人群中秘密力量的配合，單在中國境內是根本無法開展此類調查的。

From: Shixiong Li, President
To: Dr. Jacques Rogge, President
International Olympic Committee
Chateau de Vidy, 1007 Lausanne
Date: February 7, 2003
Dear Respected President of International Olympic Committee Dr. Rogge:
The Olympic Games has been the token of peace and friendship since its first game in 1896. The Olympic fire has already become the everlasting fire for passing the human kind wishes for a brighter future.
However, the Olympics is now again being seriously challenged since the Nazi Germany utilized her to cover its horrible nature of Nazism. It seems that this challenged was dissolved when you marked in last April. You emphasized, “we are convinced that the Olympics Games will improve human rights in China… However the IOC is a responsible organization and if either security, logistics or human rights are not acted upon to our satisfaction then we will act”. Your remark gave a big hope of justice for those weak groups (such as house church believers who refuse to join the governmental-controlled patriotic churches, street vendors, Beijing residents forced to move) who were doomed because of the China’s preparation for hosting the Olympic Games. You are esteemed as the fighter for the Olympic Spirit and human rights. On May 2nd last year, we wrote to you to tell you the solid evidence – the secret Chinese official documents – of the abuse of human rights by the Chinese government under the name to prepare for the Olympic Games. Your Chief of Staff, Mr. Christophe DE Kepper wrote us back on your behalf saying, “the content of your letter has been duly noted and will be studied accordingly.” Your reply is highly appreciated.
At present, China’s human rights record is getting from bad to worse. Attached with this letter, we provide you with more evidence about the Chinese government’s abuse of human rights. I cite one of the documents here to show its great threat towards the religious freedom. The whole document follows:
The Public Security Bureau of Jilin Province, Supreme
People’s Court of Jilin Province
Announcement on Severely Cracking Down on Illegal Organizations
To Every Public Security Bureau and People’s Courts in Every City, County (Districts):
According to relevant regulations by the State Council Ministry of Public Security and the Supreme People’s Court, and in order to host a better and successful Olympics in 2008 in our country, to stabilize the social security order, to severely crackdown on illegal gatherings, assemblies and other activities disturbing the security of peace, the following special announcement is hereby made:
1) All those gathered in groups of three or more people that do not obey the suggestions (of the government) are subject to fifteen (15) or less days detention and 1000 RMB (equal to $120 US dollars);
2) To those who attend large gatherings, protests or lectures and who do not show any remorse are subject to maximum of three years sentence and 10,000 RMB fine (equal 1,200 US dollars);
3) The heads and organizers of the illegal organizations should be punished severely and should be arrested first before making up the other arrest procedures (warrants);
4) To any practitioners and instigators of Falun Gong, the degree of punishment should increase. Once they are found, they should be arrested first before making up the other arrest procedures (warrants);
5) This campaign will last from May 20, 2000 until December 30th, 2007.
The whole world knows that China was not awarded the Olympics until July 13th, 2001. However, the Chinese government had issued the above order fourteen months in advance. What does this tell us? What concerns us most is that Olympics, the symbol of human peace and hope in the past more than hundred years, has suddenly become a threatening sword hanging above the twenty million people in that area in the seven plus years since the issue of the secret document. Further more, since it is “according to relevant regulations by the State Council Ministry of Public Security and the Supreme People’s Court”, all Chinese are living under the horrible sword to welcome the Olympics. No body knows that how many have been arrested or fined due to “illegally interfering the Olympics which Beijing will host in five years. However, the facts will tell the world that with the further success in international relationships, the Chinese government will be more confident and legitimatised to use the Olympics as a bloody sword to publicly violate the Chinese human rights.
It is worth to remember that Hitler, the No. one criminal of the World War II, who had killed tens of millions, had presided over two Olympic opening ceremonies, utilizing the Olympics to deceive the world. During these games, the athletes holding the torch had to not only run through the streets guarded by the armed Nazi soldiers but also light the Olympic fire in front of the display of the Nazi army at the stadium full of the Nazi symbols. This indicated the international acceptance of Hitler and the Nazism. Thereafter, the anti-Nazi movement became more and more isolated. And even most ordinary people started to welcome the Nazi. People opposing the Nazi became the target of the public. It is very obvious that Olympics had been a very effective tool for the Nazi to deceive the world. But who should take the responsibility for such a historical tragedy?
Therefore, we suggest you establish a final checking system for hosting the Olympics, and set up a “Committee for Final Checking the Eligibility for Hosting Olympics and Human Rights”. The committee members should have the freedom and privilege to enter into the elected country without any limitation to visit any mistreated person imprisoned or waiting to be executed, so that the final decision can be made with full respect to human dignity and full responsibility for human course, so that the Olympic image as well as the human rights will be carefully and well protected. The centurial tragedy of the Olympics being used to deceive the world should not happen again.
The old Nazi tried to gain so called “survival space” by killing foreigners; the present Nazi – the Chinese Communists – is trying to obtain their goals by slaving their own people with the excuse of “internal affairs” and by poisoning the foreigners’ conscience. This soul-winning strategy using interests and money without fire smoke and bayonets will surely destroy the whole civilization world because it will destroy the foundations of all human conscience and erode human souls. As the consequence, the evil power will prevail over the righteousness and the whole world will become the current China where morality is just for propaganda but not for practice.
The Chinese Communist regime took the success of joining the World Trade Organization and winning the 2008’s Olympics as the awards from the international society. Therefore, instead of loosing religion persecution, they have taken the advantages of these events to further the persecution course. These persecution facts may shock you because tens of millions of the house church believers are not protected by Article 36 of the Chinese Constitution, which guarantees religious freedom for its citizens. Instead, they are silently struggling for survive under the numerous horrible “state secret documents”.
Starting in the fall of year 2000, we have mobilized about 20,000 Christians in China to visit and interview over 560,000 house church believers in 207 cities in 22 provinces. According to our investigation, it can be estimated that since the opening of China in early 1980s’, among over 60 million house church believers, 2,700,000 have been arbitrarily arrested, 440,000 sentenced to labor reform, 200,000 forced to flee from home, 10,000 tortured to death, 20,000 permanently disabled due to torture, 750 publicly wanted, 130,000 under house arrest and 1,120,000 heavily fined. We are sure that these numbers are conservative, because many who were interviewed dare not speak out because of the fear of further persecution.
It is quite obvious that the religious persecution in China exceeds traditional political persecution both in severity and scope. Our websites www.china21.org and www.religiousfreedomforchina.org carry a lot more information about the persecution facts and the related governmental secret documents. Since October 2002, we have been reporting every day a new case about the Chinese police to persecute believers by arresting, extorting or brutally torturing. To illustrate the truth, we are presenting to you some photographs and several Chinese governmental documents carried out of China by some Christians risking their lives. The photographs show the house church Christians tortured to death, or forced to meet underground, in caves, dense forests or the wilderness. The Chinese governmental documents presented here include
· The Notice from the Public Security Bureau of Baoding City about Printing and Distributing Implementation Plan to Launch a Basic Investigation on Targeted Catholics (Document No.134).
· The Notice From The Public Security Bureau of Baoding City about Printing and Distribution of Working Plan to Prevent the Illegal Christian Activities (Document No. 139)
· The Notice From the Religious Affair Department, the Public Security Bureau of Baoding City, about Running a Thorough Investigation on the City’s Overseas Religious Workers (Document No. 73).
We think that Document No. 73 should cause special attention from the international society. Without the collaboration of the Chinese governmental overseas “secret force”, it is impossible to have such investigation done inside the Chinese territory.
What should make us worry is that after the cold war, mankind seems having lost directions and the traditional values have been seriously challenged. The boundary between friends and enemies are becoming more and more fuzzy, and the interests are getting more and more important. The leaders of mankind have gradually lost their moral responsibility. But the war never stops: just trade and market have replaced the bullets and battlefield. The flood of interests has destroyed the moral standards – money has become the only motivation and the only norm for human life. Back several years ago, the evil power could prevail only in few communist countries. However, nowadays, the Chinese Communists not only have successfully established or helped to establish state terrorism in China, North Korea, Vietnam, and other countries, but also have extended such evil power to every corner of the world. This is not only a great tragedy for the Chinese people but also an sorrow for the human righteousness. Does such success of state terrorism indicate the mainstream of mankind walking astray?
At the beginning of the 21st century, the world is concentrating on anti-terrorism against just small groups, but dare not to touch super-terrorists. What does this tell us? The international society’s acquiescence toward the super-terrorist and even purposely pretending not seeing have promoted the spread of terrorism around the world, stimulated and strengthened the terrorists’ confidence, becoming the soil for terrorism. There is no difference in the nature of terrorists. They are all based on narrow nationalism and personal ambition of a few insane leaders of the movement. The only difference is that the some have succeeded so that they can carry out terrorism actions under the guise of “national law”, and the others are still struggling using terrorism as a means to advance their cause to establish their own government in order to “legalize” all terror activities in the name of “internal affairs”.
For a bright future of human beings, we urge you, the president of IOC and the leader of the lofty enterprise, fight for justice for those weak groups expecting desperately, let the facts talk, and encourage your colleagues to publicize these documents and the photos so that all Olympic officials and athletes have the chance to know the truth. To be very serious, I invited Professor Andrew Nathan from Columbia University, the famous specialist in the study of contemporary China, to verify the severity of religious repression in China.
Everyone has a dream. As a child, when I was in the labor camp I had a dream for freedom. Thirty years later, although I am living in the United States, I still have a dream for freedom – the freedom of religion and faith in the great country of China. I love my country. I trust God through deeds. That is why I have the brave to reveal the world the persecution facts despite the ever-strong evil power. As long as my heart is beating, I will not give up this dream.
The Bible says, “Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourself were suffering.” The religion persecution in China has already been made known to the whole world. We hope you can keep your words and take some actions corresponding to the brutal religion persecution behind the skyscrapers, the severe violation of human rights and the jeopardy of human kinds.
I am looking forward to your reply.
May God bless these standing by with justice!
