Forced abortions and genocide in North Korea
Racial supremacy in North Korea:
The Times of London, UK, reported in 2006-OCT that female refugees
from North Korea have told stories of the Communist regime's concern and violent
methods of handling what they call 'deviant' sexual relations, and their violent
methods of dealing with them. The term 'deviant' in this case can refer to
inter-racial sex, including sex between North Korean and Chinese adults.
The Times quotes an unidentified western diplomat who said:
"It’s vital to recognize that 'juche' -- the dogma of self- reliance --
is not a theory but a cult and that [North Korea's dictator] Kim is
worshipped as the leader of a religion," said a veteran western diplomat who
negotiated with the North Koreans on 19 visits. "These Koreans genuinely
believe they are a master race and that the peninsula will be united under
the rule of the Kim dynasty."
The Times writes:
"Behind the facade of a Supreme People’s Assembly, a presidium, a cabinet
and the Korean Workers' party, North Korea operates as a one-man military
dictatorship founded on clan rule, blood ties and deification of the leader.
Kim is falsely said to have been born on the sacred slopes of Mount Paektu."
"This is used to legitimize behavior by agents of the state which human
rights activists believe will one day form the basis of indictments for
crimes against humanity."
2003 report of a human rights group:
David Hawk, a human rights investigator for The US Committee for Human Rights in North Korea,
issued a report in 2003. He reported "extreme phenomena of repression ... unique to North Korea."
He concluded that the country practiced "ethnic infanticide." He
obtained testimony from
eight women who described cases of infanticide.
