LAS VEGAS, Dec. 15, 2010 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Rael, founder and leader of the International Raelian Movement, has awarded the title of Honorary Guide to Julian Assange, founder and leader of Wikileaks.
"Julian Assange needs our energy and support so he can continue to destroy the myth of honest political leaders," Rael declared in a recent speech given in Japan, where Raelians had gathered to celebrate the 37th anniversary of Rael's encounter with the extraterrestrial scientists who created life on earth.

Rael also praised the avalanche of support Assange received from both the anonymous public and prominent critics of government deception, including Michael Moore.
"Revolution has reached the Internet," Rael said. "People are revolted by the superpowers' dictatorial attempt to silence those who love the truth and reveal lies of the governments, so those people are now taking charge in accordance with the words 'We the People'."
He added, "This is a very good sign that the younger generation isn't ready to be silent sheep but instead is ready to fight for freedom of the Internet, the last and only free media not controlled by the superpowers and multinational companies trying to make the whole world population a mass of consumers and taxpayers who never question them."
Like Assange, who says he will remain true to his ideals, Rael reaffirmed on this 37th anniversary his mission to change the world, asking Raelians to keep the 'laughter revolution'.
"I hope that thousands of Raelians will attend political meetings and the public speeches of their prime minister, and that when the politicians start to say things like 'we will build a strong nation', that everybody will laugh. Laughing is the best answer for stupidity," Rael said.
"Assange is in prison like Nelson Mandela was, but I am sure he is laughing as he knows he cannot stay there a long time," Rael concluded. "Let's send him our energy so he can keep championing freedom of speech and keep embarrassing those who pretend to take care of the interests of their people."
