Upload delayed

Since I moved to Japan, the food is quite good. Drinking coke much less since it's $1 per can. Instead, I've been drinking tea. Can't believe the days with 2 cans of coke a day.

I met my family. They are fine.



The view out the window is not bad. A steep slope bothers my walking and bicycling though. Fortunately my neighbor turned out to be a family of noble race. Wow, I got a pretty nice garden view for free!


It's going to take another one week for the next upload due to delayed phone line. It's "golden weenk" in Japan, so many offices have been taking sloppy days off these days.

Going to Japan! Yeah!!!! I'm already there, though.

Please be patient for the next upload.
The internet set up takes a long time.

The mayor Nagasaki assassinated by Yakuza


The criminal, Tetsuya Shiroo (城尾哲彌 59), was arrested.

The mayor of Nagasaki.

I'll upload the upcoming information later on.

4/17/2007 11:00(EST) People in 2ch started to claim the criminal may be Korean, but there's no report from media. Didn't they blame everything to Korean? Just because the shooting ranpage in Virginia Tech was made by a Korean yesterday, it doesn't mean every murder is executed by Korean. Regardless of the fact, Yakuza won't move unless money is involved. CNN reported that the statment of the mayor referring to the Emperor's crime in WWII angered rightists, but I am negative about that. It smells something about money. Since the major was running for his fourth consecutive seats as the mayor of Nagasaki, complicated collusion may have been webbed.

4/19/2007 0:30(EST) The ex-wife of this criminal stated at the interview that the mayor is to be blamed because he didn't give any grant, public projects, to the criminal's group just because of Yakuza. Hmmm, my suspicion, something about money, may be true.

Visit Spooky Osaka (1)

The second largest city, Osaka, is known to be very unique with its friendliness and open mind. The strongest dialect also characterizes the people in Osaka to the level that "only people from Osaka never want to adopt accents of Tokyo." The humane city, however, has been burdened with its shameful issue, casual workers and home-less people. (This article is borrowing pictures from a pioneering website "Osaka Minkoku damepo tour".)



Normal international visitors won't pay a visit to the district, Kamagasaki, located in the south part of Osaka since places for sightseeing are mostly in the northern Osaka. So are high-income residents.

Incredibly, Kamagasaki is pretty near the center of Osaka. As soon as you get off the train at the station and make a breath, you'd know something wrong is happening in this town with strong irritating odor of ammonia.
(Kamagasaki is in Nishinari district, Osaka.)



You may see the blue sheets like the picture above here and there. Yes, this town is full of homeless people who seldom take a bath.



It used to be an energetic town since way before WWII with casual workers. It was good as they were young. They enjoyed their freedom in spite of their poverty. However, they got old now. The town has become a ghost town with so many old people who are living under the blue sheets with skinny dogs.



The unsavory administration in Osaka has been pointed out. The welfare policy for the poor is neglected while the fake socially vulnerable, Buraku people, have grown with a parasitic aspect. It is said that Osaka has spent $1.2 billion so far for compensation for Buraku people. But apparently the money has been taking a huge detour. Osaka administration has also invested in huge public projects of buildings or bridges which by the way are not needed so much. The money is not used correctly especially in Osaka.


Although they are already old, they are willing to work to lead a life. The nearby job-placement office (the picture above) has a long line of such workers every day.



This video clip from youtube vividly tells you how insane this town is. I just couldn't believe there was still such a place in Japan.

Identifying the cancer of this problem was the most difficult to me. Looks like many of those workers have created multiple certificates of residence and sold their right of vote. The buyers can freely relocate their residence certificates to anyplace they like. Some political party is known to be very powerful when it comes to election. I'd want to assert you that a political party is very fishy about this, but I won't say the name here due to no evidence. But now you see the trick, don't you? Just because of those workers who have sold their right of vote, the election in this district cannot reflect the workers' will.

**Never get close to this town even if you got interested. It's not safe! **

日本の生きる道(2)

最近は慰安婦問題などでずいぶん反米の雰囲気が盛り上がっているようです。イラクの失敗でアメリカの後退がちらちら見え始めたのも原因の一つかもしれません。これは正着手なのでしょうか。米在住の人間として、アメリカを考えるにあたり、「ヒスパニック」という変数を考え、ちょっと違う視点を提言したいと思います。

それは「ホンダ議員らの人権運動はアメリカ破壊活動である」という視点です。

アメリカに旅行に行ったくらいでは気付かないかもしれませんが、南部に行くとメキシコ系が多いことに気付きます。彼らは気さくでいい人たちなんですが、現在は様々な問題を引き起こしています。

ものすごい人が行進をしている写真は、2006年3月26日にロサンゼルスで起こったメキシコ系によるデモです。50万人の行進だったそうなので、いかに多いか分かると思います。彼らは何を求めているか、知っておられる人も多いと思います。彼らは「虐げられている」と主張して、人権を求めているわけです。不法入国者だと福祉を受けられないのは当たり前なんですけどね。




こういったヒスパニックの人たちは、主にメキシコから流出しており、カリフォルニアなどを拠点として人権活動に邁進しています。上の写真は「もともと私たちの土地だった」と主張していますね。アメリカが無理矢理併合した歴史から目をそらすな、というわけです。Chicanos(米国で生まれたメキシコ人)とメキシコ生まれのメキシコ人のものだ、と急進派は主張するのです。




上の写真は何気にすごいですよ。注意して地図を見ると、メキシコの国がちょっと現在より大きめです。実はカリフォルニア州やアリゾナ州などがメキシコの領土だとしているわけで、これを堂々とアメリカで行うわけです。アメリカ破壊行動にほかなりません。


この回復すべき失地を彼らはAztlanと呼んでいるようです。その昔存在した文明Aztecを思い出させる言葉です。私はこのAztlanをgoogleで調べたのですが、日本語のサイトは全く検索されませんでした(2007年4月現在)。ブログの数は世界一というニュースが最近飛び込んできましたが、日本人の知識は偏っていることが分かります。

さぁ話を元に戻しますと、こういうデモがあるということは、逆に言えば、それを良く思わない人たちがいるはずです。
このヒスパニック系の進出をよく思わないのは、共和党です。共和党はメキシコとの国境封鎖に手を焼いています。

ここでちょっと考えてください。「歴史を振り返って自らを反省しろ」とか、「人権侵害」だとか主張するもう一つの勢力が存在していることを。いうまでもなく中国韓国系ですね。日本にそれを突きつけています。しかし、これはアメリカに突きつけていることにもなりえます。マイクホンダ議員が人権を唱えて日本を攻撃することは、将来的には急進的な民主党を成長させ、人権派を増やし、アメリカの歴史を問いただし、50州の存在を否定することになります。

話をまとめますと、中国-韓国-ヒスパニックは人権を要求する癌としてアメリカ内部で見事に繋がるのです。

中国韓国系とヒスパニック系にはもうひとつ面白い共通点があって、彼らは移住先の土地に忠誠心を誓わない、ということが挙げられます。ヒスパニック系の米軍人の高官を一人でも挙げられますか?私はノーですね。私が無知なんじゃなくて、彼らが信頼できないのです。彼らは国に尽くすよりも、彼らの生活が大事なのです。ローマは蛮族の流入で滅びましたが、アメリカは似たような歴史を歩みそうですね。だからこそ現在ローマ史の勉強が流行っているわけで、アメリカ人はバカなわけじゃありません。知っていながら防げないことに苛立っているのです。

共和党はアメリカを守りたいから、歴史や人権などくそ食らえなのです。リベラルなど要らないのです。NYTimesは従って嫌われています。日本はこの「歴史をベースとした人権意識」を良しとしない「現状維持派」の共和党と組む利点を有していると思います。



こうやって眺めると、マイクホンダ議員による慰安婦問題の運動はまさしく日米両方に打たれたくさびであることが分かります。日本はアメリカ不信に陥り、アメリカは人権問題の高まりによって逆に自らの分裂を招いてしまうわけです。もちろんこれは中共が裏に居ることは明らかでしょう。

カリフォルニア州のサンディエゴには西海岸で随一の大軍港があります。そこはメキシコとの国境の目と鼻の先です。メキシコが起こす「レコンキスタ(失地回復運動)」が成功すると、間違いなくここはメキシコ領土となります。タダでアメリカの巨大軍港の陥落に成功するわけです。アメリカの太平洋のプレゼンスは下がります。



さぁ、アメリカが太平洋の覇権を失ったら、誰がその太平洋の隙間を埋めるのでしょうか。空いた隙間に入り込む勢力が二つ以上あると、それは対立を生むことになります。日中大海戦が起きるわけです。もちろん中国が台湾を征服した後ですが。そういう最悪のシナリオを考えるのは面白くないですが、必要なことです。

Communists got Manchukuo (1)

Study of Manchukuo implies a lot of resources to us even now. Historically and geopolitically Japan and US are to cooperate for covering up continental superpowers but conflict for each profit in the continent. The two countries opened fire for the dream land, Manchukuo. Who won that area after all? Japan lost all, the US didn't won, and the continental super powers took all.

My claim throughout this article series is that the WWII between Japan and the US was determined already in 1931 when Japan seized Manchukuo. With a number of resemblances of situations, Japan nowadays have been seeing the future of Iraq or Iran superimposing on the aftermath of Manchukuo. The heartland country Manchukuo failed. So will the plan of Iraq and Iran fail. It's going to take a few articles to reach this conclusion. First of all, let us take an overview of the history and background of the Manchukuo.



The flag of Manchukuo consists of five colors. The base, yellow implies the color of Manchu. Red is assigned for Japan, blue for Hun(China), white for Mongol, and black for Korea. The concept with the five colors was called "五族協和"(five ethnics in coordination), a dreamy slogan.

You might say it's a propaganda. Of course the Japanese military neglected the coordinative cabinet's order. The military conducted assasination of the leader and allegedly obtained Manchuria. The Japanese people and media supported the military's runaway. Since the people permitted the military's dogma, the system of civilian control began to be out of control. There were many other greedy aspects Japan was showing at that time. However, there must be something more than those "evil Japanese" that I have been taught in school.

In order to reveal the circumstances of the period and the puppet country, I went to a nearby library where I found several books focusing on Manchuria. I found a book interesting because it was written by an American but published in Japan. Which country did he write this book in favor of?


"Manchukuo a bird's-eye view", James A. B. Scherer, Hokuseido Press(1933).


I opened the last page and found an intriguing phrase in the end.
She(Japan) made mistakes - what country hasn't? - but she is building a model State as a bulwark between Chinese anarchy and Russian communism, and as an object-lesson to China. She(Japan) is the spear-head of the West thrust between China and Russia, fighting a lone hand. If Theodore Roosevelt's Asiatic policy had been followed, perhaps she could have been spared some of the mistakes she has made during the last quarte-century. She might today be America's best friend in Asia. It is not yet too late to win her back.


What do you think about this? This book must indeed be written for Japan's profit probably with support of a Japanese publisher or supposedly government. The "mistake" he refers to as would be Japanese invasion into Manchuria with all the explosion and assassination of the local leader. And he concludes that America shouldn't become hostile on Japan's policy, and he suggests a satisfactory solution, "international cooperation in the internal reconstruction in China." Obviously his and Japan's plead didn't reach Washington.

When he wrote this book in 1933, he already foresaw occurence of the future war between Japan and the US. Hmm, Interesting. Although the world may look the runaway of Japanese military as dangerous enemy, the author didn't seem to share the same perspective. So what was he claiming as the threat? Firstly he points out China's anarchy.
A report in May, 1931, by General Ho Ying-chin, then leading his fourth campaign against Chinese Reds, estimated that since the middle of 1928 the communists had massacred over 260,000 people, burned 220,000 houses and destroyed about $200,000,000 worth of property, American money. In addition, 1,500,000 people had fled from their homes.

We hardly know that China was in anarchy at that time, and Chinese militaries invaded castles and massacre people inside. In China, massacring civilains inside castles has been historically and widely taking place. There's even a term, "屠城(slaughter castle)". In such situations, it was not desirable to continue or expand economical activities from European and American point of view.

Secondly, he notices the threat of Sovietism, prevailing into a south province of China and northern states, Manchuria, as shown in the map below. The shaded areas denote the places where Sovietism was influential. It is interesting that Sovietism or communism grew their strong influence along the railroads in Manchukuo (see the map). As written above, 260,000 people were already massacred by communists. Therefore, the author regards the invasion of communists as "nightmare of Japan".



Espionage, terrorism or propaganda by Soviet communists must have been a piece of cake in Manchukuo, for there's already 70,000 Russians living in Harbin. Manchuria was slowly leaving from Japan's hand.

Pachinko industry

I'm sure most of you have seen gorgeously decorated buildings like the pic below in front of every station or along every wide road if you have travelled to Japan. This article today is about Pachinko, an infamous gamble that Japanese newspapers or massmedia never report but is responsible for $300 billion underground industry.



Pachinko is the only illegal gamble you won't be arrested with, and it's widespread since the end of WWII. It's a very simple game. You enter the building, buy metal balls which you call "pachinko", flick them with a lever, and drop the flying balls in jackpots. Yes, it's a pinball machine. The actual style is a miniature and upright one. One pachinko parlor shop have more than 100 of machines. The only difference from pinball mahines is that you can retrieve more balls and afterwards change them into cash. Of course you can make your life only if you are very good at it, and indeed, there are those ones.



The lure of this game is outstanding enough to cause tragic accidents where babies are died of heat stroke in the car while their parents are carried away in pachinko parlors. Leaving babies for only 10 minutes is already dangerous! These days those parents tend to be sentenced to a heavy punishment for what they have done. These cases have been seen many times since I was small. It's not rare. Plus it's a waste of money and time.

Aside from most of Japanese anxiety on the prevail of this infamous gamble, the industy has grown to achieve $300 billion dollars. FYI, the medical industry is comparable, $300 billion, and car industry holds $410 billion dollars in Japan (as of 2006). Pachinko industry is a gigantic industry you never thought to be. For example, consider a man spending $100 for 30 minutes game and he played 2 hours. He would lose $400 if in bad luck. Of course he can win $2000 a day, but rarely happens. Those who line up to the door of the parlors in the morning before its open to get a good seat for so-called easy machines NEVER get surplus statistically.

Then why don't massmedia report this fact and alert people? Actually, I personally haven't seen ANY articles or programs that invoke discussion on the pros and cons of pachinko. If nothing is coming out of massmedia, there's a taboo inside it. That's the theme of my blog. In this case as well, the mastermind is zainichi again! In case of pachinko, the structure of the collusion looks to me enigmatic, a manifold among police, zainichi, politicians, North Korea, and mass media.


Finally I found a TV program that barely penetrate the kernel of pachinko industry. "Move" from TV asahi reported that this industyr consists of 50% South Korean owners, 30 to 40% North Korean owners, and 10% Japanese owners.



There was a valuable interview with a president, Han Chang-Woo (韓 昌祐) of the biggest pachinko chain shops "Maruhan". He was ranked 584th among world richest people according to Forbs in 2006. The interview is uploaded to Youtube but held in Japanese, so I'll briefly summarize his speech. His brother, a brick maker, smuggled him into Japan in 1945 just after WWWII because their life was economically hard to continue. He graudated Hosei University in Tokyo, but at that time (1952) the economy in Japan was not in a favorable situation even for Japanese student who graduated from university. He lived from hand to mouth even after graduation. Finally he met pachinko industry and got inclined to enlarge this business. In his interview, he defines pachinko industry as "discriminative occupation". Since no banks were willing to lend money to Zainichi Korean, people like him had to take a job like pachinko that handles money as close as possible.


Links:
The US must not have overlooked this loophole for North Korea's money. The problem of pachinko industry was reported to sanate by Larry M. Wortzel, Ph.D. from The Kathryn and Shelby Cullom Davis Institute in 2003. It goes:
Japan’s 18,000 Pachinko gambling parlors, some 30 percent of which are owned by ethnic North Koreans, bring in annual sales of $280 billion a year. Some of this money is also funneled into North Korea, although Japan is now tightening up on that practice.


LA times also points out the connection to North Korea in Decdmber 2006.

Comfort women? No, they are prostitutes (2)

The reason more and more Japanese get rightish after they become adolescent, as far as I can tell, is due to flood of books or internet. On the contrary, those who only watch TVs tend to have an opposite historical perspective.

Here's a case in point on the issue of "comfort women" or "sex slaves" alledgedly accused by South Korea. They have been condemning Japan for Japanese military forcing Korean women to have sex with soldiers during WWII. Abe made an objection in March 2007 with support of silent majority of Japan, stating "no coercing them into sexual conducts". Why is he so confident? How have Japanese been getting a "wrong" idea of justifying its atrocities? Were those comfort women really prostitutes? I'll show one of the most influential books written by Kobayashi Yoshinori, who is known to be a right-winger. Actually it's a comic book, which by the way you may guess was very influential. I cut two pages out of his book on the description of the "prostitutes" he calls, so please enjoy it with my translation.

I learned a valuable lesson from him this time. The prosecutors against Japanese government is stunningly hiding those facts:
1) The pimps were Korean.
2) Japanese military brought whorehouses under control to protect human rights of comfort women from pimps.
, which I have never heard from the accusing side. Why don't we take them into consideration and discuss this matter again?


The auther, Kobayashi, asked, for an insight, a note, 武漢兵站 (Bukan Heitan), written by an assistant manager of one of the controversial facilities. Wnen the assistant manager was dispatched to Wuhan (a city of central china), he found pimps who entered the castle and were coercing Korean women into sex slaves with no payment(↓).



He brought the pimps under control and made them pay to the Korean women so they can pay back as Japanese pimps did to Japanese comfort women. Those Korean women had debt of 6~7 thousand yen on average. Therefore, he set the payment to 4~500 yen a month, which would allow them to be released in one and a half year at the most. He also instruct the pimps to let the women work if they want even after their debt is gone so they can earn profit before going back to their hometown. (↓)



Kobayashi, the glassed rightist points out that the engagement by Japanese military was to improve human rights of those women who used to be literally "sex slaves"(↓).



Kobayashi secondly picked another private note, Kankou Ianjo(漢口慰安所), which describes various episodes about what was going on in the same city, Wuhàn. The command center of logistics the auther worked at not only kept the facility under control but also protected those "comfort women" from undue exploitation by pimps. He founds several brutal cases made by Korean pimps. When they collected Korean women from poor villagers, they didn't make any documented contract for those women. In other words, they freely used the women and threw them away as a slave. This means the women never get to have chance to go back, but they didn't seem to be aware of the fact. The doctor Fujisawa, the author of the note, ordered the pimps to create due bills for them and made a system in which the women can be free as soon as they pay it back. (↓)


A comfort women, who was named Keiko as her professional name, was very popular and made 30,000 yen at once. This amout corresponds to $400,000 nowadays. Her dream was to earn 50,000 and run a restaurant in her hometown, Keijo (Old name for Seoul). "What an admirable woman," said Chief Ikeda, and he handed her a testimonial.(↓)



The thirty fourth Division landed on Wuhan in 1939. Suddenly the busy days have come for those women and they started to earn a lot with the soldiers lined up. (↓)


When soldiers were about to take off their shoes, women urge them to come soon, "Don't take off your equipment and come on now." (↓)



So, the soldiers walk on their knees and do it anyhow with their shoes and leather leggings on.(↓)


The ball was in women's court. Soldiers typically squeeze out their little savings.(↓)


The women worked hard saving time for cleansing their virgina. When the doctor checked them, their labia were swallen. He ordered them to take a rest for three days, but the women ...(↓)


But the women started to protest against him instead of being relieved! Their logic was as follows: "Recently we were leading pretty dull days with few customers. Now that we are finally having a perfect chance to earn a lot with a big division passing this city, we have to earn as much as possible. It's very cruel to force us to overlook this opportunity."
The rule defines the fee as 1 yen for thirty minutes, but the women changed the rule: they kick the customers out with 2 and a half yen for 10 to 15 minutes. (↓)


Kobayashi now questions, "so, the true story was like this, and how can you conclude that rapes were going on or they were slaves?"(↓)



It's just universal. There are women to earn money and horny men to buy women.(↓)


"Those soldiers should be blamed anyway, those Japanese soldiers!" Such people yelling like this are typically military segregationists. They just don't like whatever Japanese military do. I (Kobayashi) hate "leftists" who hate Japan, government, and military, even though those "leftists" are Japanese. They are pleased when regarding Japan as evil. I hate it.



So, what do you think?

日本の生きる道

最近、従軍慰安婦の問題などでマスコミが総出で安倍首相叩きをしていますね。それが全く論理に基づくものではなく、「まわりが謝れと言っているから謝れ」という類のもので、だいぶフラストレーションが溜まっている方も多いのではないでしょうか。

こんな窮地のときにどうするか、ですが、日本人の悪いところは「謝るか」と「開き直るか」の二択に選択肢を縮めてしまうことではないかと思います。ハルノートを突きつけられたら二択しかない、これではいけません。

私たちにはまだ選択肢はあります。そして、今回はすぐに戦争になる、といった類のものではないのです。選択肢を考えてみましょう。

雑誌のTIMEに投票するのはあまり感心が持てません。本当に効果があるでしょうか。ホンダ氏にメールを送るのはどうでしょう。それもダメですね。政治家は金で動きます。メールで動くわけがありません。

英文サイトを作って理解を求めるのは次善の策でしょう。他には、nikaidou氏が、ホンダ氏に敵対する議員への献金を言っていました。彼は口が悪いですが、言うことは当たっています。

私は「プロ右翼」を創るべきだと思います。プロサヨクは活動的ですよね。プロですから一日中政治活動ができるのです。プロ右翼を育てれば、さぞかし強力になると思いますよ。対馬で何が起こっているか知りたい人、たくさん居るでしょう。信濃町の裏で何が行われているか知りたい人はたくさんいます。反日政治家の身元を知りたい、皇室の裏側でうごめく存在を知りたい、などなど需要はたくさんあります。それを取材して公表するメディアがあればさぞかし日本の正常化に役立つことでしょう。需要はあるのです。取材をすれば、その広告収入、書籍化して印税が手に入ります。今こそ誰かが立ち上がってプロ右翼の情報屋、そして新しいメディアを作るべきでしょう。

今、日本の大衆右翼に欠けているものは、力を集中させて大きなパワーを出すシステムです。今は残念ながらTIMEに投票するくらいの情けないことしかできないのです。


私は外国に住んでいるため、あまり目だった活動ができません。英文サイトを空いた時間に作るくらいの微力な存在です。しかし、英文サイトを作ってから、だんだんとリンクが集まり始め、今では南京大虐殺を英語で検索すれば、30番目くらいに出てきます。"zainichi"を英語で検索すれば、5番目です。"Uyoku"に至っては4番目です。十分発信力が出てきたと実感しています。日本には変な右翼がいて、私たちとは違うことを知ってもらう必要があります。また、在日差別が実は逆差別であるものだと知ってもらわなければなりません。そのためにも、せめて検索順位4、5番目でもキープしておくのは効果があります。他にもあります。"Malaysia WWII"と二語でgoogle検索してみると、このブログが1番に来るんです。 「日本軍がマレーシアに虐待した」という断罪的、一方的な歴史をもう一度見直してもらうのに、非常に効果的である、ということになります。

私のブログでさえ一番初めに検索される、ということは、逆に言えば、それだけ『私たちが世界に知ってほしい情報』がまだ伝わってない、ということでしょう。ちょっとした発信で、十分な威力があるのです。わたしはプロではないのでこのブログに費やす時間に限界がありますが、やらないよりはマシです。日本では日本のブロガーが、外国では外国の日本人ブロガーで世界を挟み撃ちをしていきたいと思ってます。

もっと考えれば、雑誌TIMEに投票するよりも、まだまだいい方法があるはずです。みんなで考えて知恵を集中させれば、もっとパワフルな方法が生まれるはずです。

英文での情報発信力を高めるために、私のブログの内容をコピペして丸ごと使って頂いても結構です。英文を書けない人にオススメ。日本に味方する情報量を増やさねばなりません。質より量です。 (著作権は放棄しませんが、非営利の目的であり、かつ日本の良いところを知らせるための内容であればご自由に。)


まとめ:
プロ右翼をつくろう。
英文サイトを作って相互リンク。英文を書けない人はこのブログの内容をコピペ。

分かる人だけ分かるオオニシ(Onishi Norimitsu)情報:
哲光 Chul-Gwang 철광(チョルグァン) 本当にありがとうございました。

Heightened tensions between Zainichi and Japanese

If you are an enthsiastic reader of this blog, you know what zainichi people are. The conflict condition between Zainichi and Japanese rightists has caused intolerable strain these days. A half of zainichi in terms of ideology, pro-DPRK clan, held a big rally March 3rd 2007 at Hibiya, Tokyo, to protest against pressure onto them, claiming abolishment of discriminative treatment. It's funny. I feel like they have discriminated Japanese on the contrary. It's also shocking to know the fact that they can hold such a rally right in the center of Tokyo. (Hibiya is a walking distance from Tokyo station.)



The rally and a demonstration march were reported by a number of rightish bloggers. That day was over without any violent conflict.



It looks to me just a hostile demonstration against our state power.



There already was a conflict between Tokyo prefecture and Zainichi before this rally. Tokyo led by Ishihara asked court for cancellation of use by Zainichi prior to March 3rd. The reason for their appeal is "Public facilities in Tokyo should be for public open to everybody, not for specific party. But they are apparently taking place an exclusive rally." The court, however, dismissed the appeal and permitted the usage. Mass media seemed to stay neutral as to this issue.

Here was another plan to be held March 4th for DPRK's similar activity near Shinjuku. Yoyogi district in Tokyo cancelled the usage of a facility for Zainichi 2nd March because the symposium was intended to exclude Japanese. Hey, Debito, why don't you come out and yell at zainichi? They were about to keep out Japanese. That's discrimination you always mention.

Comfort women? No, they are prostitutes


I guess you already know what "comfort women" means; sexually abused women by Japanese military according to activists from Korea. Of course this is an alleged issue. Let me discuss the truth hidden behind this condemning from a perspective of a typical Japanese who once regret it already in 1980s and changed one's mind these years after a lot of personal investigation on the so-called "comfort women".

(1)Are these testimonies really reliable?
If testimonies have absolute reliability, I have another testimony from a Japanese side. When a Japanese lady was washing vegitables in the river, two Korean comfort women passed by her and laughed, "why can you do such a dirty work while you are beautiful? Why don't you look at us dressed with these beautiful outfits and change your mind? You are going to lead a happy life like us!"

(2) What about Korean?
Why don't Korean regret their own history of world-class prostitute industry? Not only US soldiers but Korean residents took advantage of comfort women along 동두천〔東豆川〕tongduch'ŏn in the Korean war. Depriving of women from their family and sell them as merchandise, that's their history.



(3)Comfort women pimps were mostly Korean
The problem of so-called "comfort women" (Ianpu) was severely discussed in Japan since 1980s. As a representive of Japanese government, Kono made a statement and apologized in 1993 for their physicological loss as comfort women. He was pursuaded by a number of protesters at that time, and said "they had to work as comfort women at that time and Japanese soldiers used that system." Since this statement was announced, a lot of research has been implemented. As the truth have been unraveled, however, people's interest has been lost due to small involvement by Japanese military. It turned out that Korean comfort women were torn apart from their family by Korean traders (for details go to (2)). It's their own karma. Kono lately admitted that he made a decision with only testimonies he heard at an interview with former comfort women. No evidence in literature was found after then although it turns out critical discripancies were found in their tenstimonies. The term "involvement of military" is very tricky. Japanese military at that time prepared facilities to house comfort women and have doctors see them to prevent them from VD (see (2) for details). If somebody forcefully dragged their hands into the salons, it's Korean public dealers. Of course there were a lot of applications to become comfort women on account of extraordinary sallery. They ought to have been paid that much since they provided their body far away from their home town.

Anyway, foreign newspapers typically know few about the lowdown of the disputed issue. Onishi Norimitsu at New York Times should investigate it more and present solid evidences if accusing Japan's response. Otherwise people are now gossiping about you, suspecting you may be zainichi(Korean).

For those who still doublt about me, I'll cite a material. Please confer:
Report No. 49: Japanese POW Interrogation on Prostitution.
UNITED STATES OFFICE OF WAR INFORMATION
http://www.exordio.com/1939-1945/codex/Documentos/report-49-USA-orig.html
This investigation clarifies the definition of so-called "comfort women".
A "comfort girl" is nothing more than a prostitute or "professional camp follower" attached to the Japanese Army for the benefit of the soldiers.




(4)There's no freedom of speech in Korea
(Sep.6 2004 from Chosun Ilbo)

Professor Yi (李栄薫) at Seoul National University, apologized to the comfort women for sating "they were prostitutes" after avalanche of criticisms. Totalitarianization doesn't allow academia to make a free speech. Note that there are lots more scholars who were criticized because of their interpretations in favor of Japanese rule before 1945.


(5)What about their current disaster in North Korea?
The culture of "comfort women" can be seen in North Korea, too. They are collected from all over the country and used as sex slaves to satisfy insatiable sexual appetite of Kim Jong Il. Working as sex slaves and serve to him is taught as honorable. Condemning Japanese is thus effective to avert other's attention onto their own countries and overshadowing their own current discrepancy.

Now the police is doing their job

They say frontline officers had been frustrated with high-handed methods by zainichi from North Korea. Every time before they raid on the buildings, they got an order to stop them from raiding. However, the top official appointed by Japanese PM Abe pledged a hard-line attitude toward North Korea. The succesive raids defenately reflect their policy. One of the arrests included a remarkable result, capturing a big scientist who learned Engineering at Tokyo university. He was a representative figure on development Taepodong. Other arrests on Koreans may not be related to North Korea, but I listed them.

I wanted to describe the details on each raid, but it's so many! Let me just make short comments: See this article or this for the past raids. You may see how terrific zainichi's reactions are. It's like Yakuza. Well, they are indeed Yakuza if you get to know the truth, though.

An arrest on 河 英哲(36)in Kobe. I posted this once. Click here for details.

Jan. 29th in Kanagawa
Two Korean were arrested on unauthorized personnel-service business. But it was aimed at arresting a scientist, 徐 錫洪(74), who had something to do with development of missiles, Taepodong. He is known to have flown to DPRK once in August, 1998 and last year when the missiles "Taepodong" were launched. He was an expert in rocket engineering in Tokyo university. After graduation at Tokyo University, he continued his study on propulsion device at a nearby institute.

金 和秀 and two other were arrested. The police cracked down on tax cheats a hundred million yen (~ $ 1,000,000). They've got two Orders of First-class National Flag from DPRK. Probably they contributed a lot to the government by cheating tax.



Feb. 6th in Kobe, Hyogo
A raid was executed collecting 600 members of police.


The new trend of their canpaign is use young ladies in front and let them shout. I just wonder from where they appeared.



According to a Japanese blogger who ran into this raid, it was a never-seen-before melee with huge roar.

Feb. 15th in Kanagawa
曹 守夫(62) was arrested on murder while drunk.

Feb. 22nd in Fukuoka
白 行雄(45) was arrested on assistance in robbery into Pachinko shop in Jan. 27th 2003.


One of the purposes of those raids is of course cutting money source for DPRK. Since their tax declaration had been free from inspection by their local tax office, cheating was pretty easy. They send money to DPRK in part due to their loyalty. Investigation of organized crime, abduction, by zainichi groups is another reason. The abductions were well-planned crimes carried out by spies with support of local zainichi civilians.

I've found more more crimes by Koreans during this past three months, but I'm out! So tired.
