The Chinese consul in Tel Aviv sent a letter protesting the Dalai Lama's visit to Israeli authorities, comparing the Dalai Lama to the head of the Hamas, Israel Radio reported. "If China would let the head of Hamas visit, Israel would be angry," the radio station cited the letter as saying. Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev would not confirm that China had sent such a letter, and said the Israeli government was not involved in the Dalai Lama's visit. Officials at the Chinese Embassy in Tel Aviv couldn't be reached for comment.
