A century-old letter supporting Zionism, from pre-communism Chinese leader Dr. Sun Yat-sen, recently surfaced at the National Library of Israel.
Known as the father of the Chinese nation, Sun called Zionism “one of the greatest movements of the present time.”
Sun’s words were written in a 1920 letter he sent to N.E.B. Ezra, a prominent Shanghai Zionist publisher and author.
