Chinese Candidate Condemns Red China for Aid to Palestinian Terrorists

Charles Kee, Liberal Party candidate for Assembly from the 60th A.D. Manhattan called today upon “my fellow Chinese throughout the world to condemn Red China for sending arms to Palestine guerrillas and for training commandoes against Israel.” Mr. Kee, the only Chinese candidate for public office in New York State this year, said that Communist Chinese military advisors posing as newsmen have been dispatched from the Communist Embassy in Damascus, Syria to Jordan. “Despite the nature of the present regime in China,” Mr. Kee said, “the Chinese people feel a kinship and a friendship with the Jewish people and the Israelis in particular. We have lived and worked harmoniously with Jewish people throughout the world.” Mr. Kee, the leading Chinese official in the Lindsay Administration, is now on leave from his post as Deputy Commissioner for Re-location.
