Chinese Website: Dalai Lama Has 'Nazi' Policies

By THE ASSOCIATED PRESS

BEIJING (AP) — A state-run Chinese website has launched a bitter attack on the Dalai Lama by accusing the exiled Buddhist leader of "Nazi-style" racial policies and of inciting Tibetans to set themselves on fire.

The commentary on China Tibet Online, also carried Saturday by the Xinhua News Agency, is one of the strongest reactions from Beijing to a string of protests in ethnic Tibetan areas in China.

About 30 Tibetan monks, nuns and lay people have set themselves on fire in the past year to protest what they say are repressive government policies against their religion and culture. Many seek the return of the Dalai Lama.

The government-backed website blames the Dalai Lama "for instigating self-immolations and advocating Nazi-style racial segregation ideas."
