Frustration in Beijing

Poor China. Still upset over that island they want so badly:

Apparently, some Israeli tourists going to travel in China with the latest Lonely Planet book were asked to hand in their very expensive book at the border-crossing due to its 'political nature' showing maps of China which color Taiwan in a different color suggesting that Taiwan is not a part of China.

I've got to agree with Gaijinbiker on this one:

You can't be a superpower if you're this insecure.

In their defense, however, they don't generally go berserk over cartoons.
