BY NATIONAL REVIEW

TEN years ago, Ethan Gutmann wrote a book called “Losing the New China: A Story of American Commerce, Desire, and Betrayal.” It was about the sordid relationship between the American business community and the Chinese Communist Party. Our businessmen accommodate themselves to the CCP, and turn a blind eye to persecution. Sometimes they even abet this persecution: as when Cisco and other technology companies devised special ways to monitor and arrest Falun Gong practitioners. Reviewing Gutmann’s book in these pages, I said, “Every once in a while comes a book to stir your slumber, and this is one.”

Gutmann’s new book, The Slaughter, should prevent sleep altogether. It is a stark title, for a stark reality.

The book is about Falun Gong and its practitioners, and the CCP’s relentless persecution of them. Falun Gong is a religion or spiritual philosophy or “mind–body system.” It has its roots in Buddhism and qigong (a relative of yoga). In other words, it is very Chinese — unlike Marxism-Leninism (and Maoism). Its leading tenets are “Truth, Compassion, Forbearance.” The practitioners have had a lot to forbear.

Excerpt from Ethan Gutmann’s book “The Slaughter”

slaughterEthan Gutmann’s new book The Slaughter (Prometheus Books, 2014) reports findings that have been anticipated by investigators and advocates worldwide. Without excessive commentary, Gutmann presents the stark reality of the lived experience of a witness found credible beyond doubt, of her dreams (in italics) and psychological state, and the deeply personal attempts of the victim to subconsciously decipher the medical testing she was subjected to while in forced labor in China. Written with meticulous scrutiny, this book makes a landmark contribution to the body of knowledge of forced organ harvesting.

With a release date of August 12th, the publisher has authorized DAFOH to print the following excerpt: Conclusion of the Wang Yuzhi case (Chapter 6, pp. 185-7)

“…A woman like Wang had become toxic waste: difficult to bury, dangerous to keep around, and problematic to release. The ambiguity of the government’s position was expressed in an increasingly common procedure: the police would suddenly free a practitioner, having tortured him or her up to imminent death. In the early days that worked like the Sicilian warning of delivering a severed head on the doorstep of a village. Now, with global websites like Minghui.org, a severed head was potentially bad publicity.

The Slaughter – Official Release Today

The launching of The Slaughter will be today(August 12) at National Endowment for Democracy in Washington DC. Ethan Gutmann will also be on the Leonard Lopate show at noon on the 13th in NYC to talk about his book.

 

The Slaughter: Mass Killings, Organ Harvesting, and China’s Secret Solution to Its Dissident Problem

The inside story of China’s organ transplant business and its macabre connection with internment camps and killing fields for arrested dissidents, especially the adherents of Falun Gong.

Mass murder is alive and well. That is the stark conclusion of this comprehensive investigation into the Chinese state’s secret program to get rid of political dissidents while profiting from the sale of their organs–in many cases to Western recipients. Based on interviews with top-ranking police officials and Chinese doctors who have killed prisoners on the operating table, veteran China analyst Ethan Gutmann has produced a riveting insider’s account–culminating in a death toll that will shock the world.
