China to U.S.: "Dalai Lama is a Nazi and Should be Shot!"
Former General Editor of Japan Times Weekly, and guest lecturer, Yoichi Shimatsu, tells a bus load of shocked American students from the University of Stony Brook's School of Journalism visiting China that the Dalai Lama is a Nazi criminal. Shimatsu, a regularly featured panelist at China's Tibetology Research Center in Beijing is considered an expert on Tibetan affairs among China's intellectual elite. In this capacity, and supported by the central government's, "Pemanent Mission of the People's Republic of China to the U.N.," Shimatsu's accusations remain unchallenged by China's body politic. As reported by Shimatsu in this clip, China feels it is its duty that the Dalai Lama be shot on sight.
