China: Dalai Lama a 'Nazi'

Whoa, cool it with the rhetoric? A state-run Chinese website called China Tibet Online posted a commentary Saturday that accused the Dalai Lama of "Nazi" racial policies. The piece was also carried by the official Xinhua News Agency and says the exiled Tibetan leader advocates racial segregation when he criticizes China's "cultural genocide" by taking over Tibetan religion and customs. The attack also claims the Dalai Lama instigated some 30 Tibetans to burn themselves in protest over the past year—the spiritual leader has praised the people's courage but does not encourage the protests.
