The New China News Agency of Communist China has included an anti-Israel slogan among the slogans issued by Chairman Mao Tse Tung to mark the 20th anniversary, on Oct. 1, of the Communist regime. Only three slogans specifically voiced backing for foreign “liberation” movements. Included were the struggle of the Vietnamese Communists, the Albanians and the Arabs. The new slogan pledged backing to “the people of all Arab countries in their Just struggle against United States imperialism and Zionism.”
