E. Asia Island Disputes Trigger Battling Ads in US

Posted: Sep 04, 2012

Eminent Chinese philanthropist Chen Guangbiao has publicly called for an amicable solution to "prevent Japan's claim on China's Diaoyu Islands" in a half-page advertisement in Friday's New York Times.

The advertisement appeared in the main section of the paper, on page 19, and included an overview on the islands.

"Japan's right wing is now violating China's Diaoyu Islands.

"The Diaoyu Islands have been part of China since antiquity. I call on the United States government and people everywhere to condemn Japan's provocative behavior," the advertisement said in both English and Chinese.

It said Japan's right wing is now violating China's territorial sovereignty, and threatening stability and security in the Asia-Pacific region.

The Diaoyu Islands dispute and Japan's so-called move to nationalize the islands were incited by Japan's right wing, it said, and the islands must be protected.

Marked by Chen's personal style, the advertisement has a photo of the philanthropist posing as a skater on a bicycle.

"How would Americans feel, and what would America do, if Japan announced that Hawaii was its territory?" the advertisement asked.

Chen's advertising campaign in the renowned American newspaper was in response to an advertisement in The Wall Street Journal on July 27 bought by the Tokyo Metropolitan Government.
