The Japanese mainstream media and political class have always tried to keep Japan out of any political controversies. That has resulted in the pitiful reality where one of the most powerful countries in the world (in terms of economic development) has the political influence of a second-class state. The recent clash with reality, displayed in the hostage crisis, sucked Japan against its will into the vortex of the world’s worst political problems.
When the Muslim animals from ISIS captured and beheaded two Japanese nationals – Kenji Goto and Haruna Yukawa – and paraded them before and after the execution in their infamous video propaganda, Japan was unprepared to face the situation. The fact that ISIS demanded a ransom of $200 million underlined both the strength and the weakness of Japan – the terrorists took into account the fact that Japan is an enormously rich country and at the same time is a political midget that could do absolutely nothing to free its citizens.
The terrorists were correct: unlike Israel, which years ago freed its hijacked airplane in the famous Entebbe operation, Japan didn’t have even the faintest chance to do something similar. All because of the ridiculous Article 9 in the Japanese Constitution, which prevents the Japanese army from getting involved in any action outside of Japan. This is a humiliating arrangement stopping Japan from conducting any defense actions – they can’t even use the army to protect members of their government travelling abroad.
The constitution was hastily drafted and adopted under the American occupation after World War II. Obviously, it purpose was to change drastically the balance of power in the Far East and neutralize Japan as a military power after the horrors of the war. The process was not unlike the “de-Nazification” of Germany and was supposed to instil a perpetual feeling of guilt in the Japanese and turn the proud samurai nation into a mass of docile workers. (That was the purpose of the infamous “War Guilt Information Program” imposed by the occupational administration of General Douglas McArthur, the de facto “Emperor” of Japan for about 7 years). In return, they were receiving the protection of the USA from their bases in the occupied Japanese territories, like Okinawa.
The process worked – surprisingly, Japan turned into a mighty economic force, while remaining passive politically under the American defense umbrella. Neither General McArthur, nor Truman and Eisenhower imagined at the time that Japan will become their only faithful ally in the region and will eventually be betrayed by the weakness of Barack Obama, the first affirmative action President.
Unfortunately, the masses in Japan never thought about the bargain that their government and the occupiers got them into. Countless people still think that all that Japan has achieved after the war was due to the country’s pacifism and if they kick out the Americans, things would get even better. The fact that after the end of the Cold War Japan has to deal with the increasingly aggressive economic powers of China and South Korea, and the always present insane regime of North Korea, still hasn’t registered in the minds of those products of the American-Japanese pacifism.
The final outcome is a generation, which would rather see their country destroyed than take up arms and defend it. The results of a survey, quoted by Japan Times earlier this year, are beyond lamentable:
Japanese ranked the lowest in their “willingness to fight for country” in a global poll released last year by the World Values Survey.
Asked if they would fight for their nation in the event of war, only 15.3 percent of Japanese said yes, compared with 57.7 percent of Americans and 74.2 percent of Chinese.
By age, 9.5 percent of Japanese under 30 said they would be willing to fight, as did 20.3 percent of pollees older than 50.
In case you think that the newspaper is outraged by that, I should note that the article is a part of series, which aims at preserving the pacifist nature of Japan. Many papers, TV and radio stations quietly support China and South Korea (which was very obvious under the short-lived government of Ichiro Ozawa’s Democratic Party).
It is painful to watch the official Japanese TV channels (ran by their broadcast giant NHK). The format is dominated by repetitive shows, which include many people gathered in a large hall, sitting around a large table and discussing insignificant or even ridiculous issues. They include current celebrities, has-been celebrities and even wannabe celebrities. Even the world-famous Japanese actor and film director Takeshi Kitano has such a show. The participants often go on field trips to visit restaurants or strange places and their adventures are played to the participants in the studio, with a tiny insert in the upper corner of the screen showing in sequence their faces and reactions. Trannies are part of some of those shows – a fat tranny at a show I saw a couple of weeks ago ate over 20 pancakes while he was testing different brands of syrups.
In another show a group from the studio (which included a transvestite) visited a mosque in Tokyo. When they entered, a girl in the group, along with the tranny, had to cover their heads (that was bizarre because the tranny was a man). Then they listened for a while to the wailing of the Turkish imam and in the end clapped appreciatively in a typical Japanese manner. The comments explained that the mosque has been built by Turkey and the country even imported the construction materials. The adventure didn’t bring any sensible comments from the studio crowd, other than the remark of a cute airhead that she had never seen such a beautifully decorated building.
At such shows, which are supposed to be funny, there is no place for two unfortunate guys captured and about to be beheaded by Muslim savages. That ruins the official narrative – we are such nice people, who haven’t fought for 70 years, how could they kill some of us? The situation was noted in the press (though in a Canadian article, h/t BCF):
Images or mentions of knives, ransom or blood — or anything else that can be seen alluding to the hostage crisis involving two Japanese in Syria — have been omitted. Some anime and other entertainment programs are altering, cancelling or postponing episodes violating those sensitivities — typical of the kind of self-restraint shown here to avoid controversy.
The worst point in that wilful blindness is that similar events have happened before, like the capture of the three Japanese hostages early in the Iraq war (they managed to get out alive) and the murder of another Japanese “tourist” hostage in Iraq a few years later.
As I already mentioned, Islam is advancing on Japanese territory as well – though the number of Muslims moving in is miniscule by the Western standards, they use the gullibility of the Japanese (especially girls) to spread their poisonous cult. Those are owners of small halal restaurants or stands, construction workers, etc., and with them inevitably arrive the mosques and their imams.
Although not that many (again, according to the Western standards), the Japanese Muslim converts are even more fanatical and repulsive than the original Muslims. When the current hostage crisis broke out in January, the Japanese mainstream media dug out an exceptionally disgusting creep – Prof. Ko Nakata, a Japanese Muslim convert and “Islamic law scholar,” who boasted that he could get the hostages alive from the ISIS territory, because many of their commanders are his personal friends.
He gave a press conference, where he explained his plan (you can find it on YouTube, I am not providing him with a link). He showed up with his lawyer, who explained Nakata’s situation. He was under investigation for arranging the trip of Japanese students to Syria to fight for ISIS. Nakata was also charged with starting a “private war” on behalf of terrorists. Before the situation got too hot in Syria, he was going to visit it in order to participate in a sharia trial against a Japanese captured by ISIS (the fighting stopped him). He lectured the media that Japan wouldn’t have been in that trouble, had Prime Minister Shinzo Abe skipped the visit to Israel during his Middle East tour.
Even in the pro-Islamist England such a Muslim piece of garbage that openly admits his links with terrorism would’ve been behind bars long time ago. Yet all that is not enough for the Japanese government to take action.
The pro-Muslim conspiracy nuts went even further, declaring the Prime Minister of Japan and the hostages closet Jews working for Mossad:
Clearly, then, the premise, here, is true that these men are not merely spies and government moles but are also arch-Zionist agents. Abe was just there coincidentally. “Abe”, with the supposed hostage, “Haruna,” that is Japanese “Aaron?” Hmm.
Abe was in Zionist-controlled and -run Egypt with the Israeli butcher al-Sisi, and then when to visit that other arch-war criminal, Netanyahu? Then, suddenly, the hostages are shown on TV with threats of great debauchery? Who finds this even remotely believable?
The poor preparedness of the government to face the Muslim threat is not new; it is a chronic problem. You may remember the Satanic Verses affair – when Ayatollah Khomeini issued a fatwa calling for the murder of Salman Rushdie, the author of the “blasphemous” novel. The world-renowned Muslim expert on baby and goat sex put the lives of many people in peril. One of his victims was the Japanese translator of the novel – Hitoshi Igarashi – who was knifed to death in the university town of Tsukuba, where he lived.
A couple of years ago I interviewed the Police Commissioner of Tsukuba about the terrorist murder. He told me that the police worked hard on the case, but couldn’t do much, because they had very few clues. The method of murder, by slashing the throat, wasn’t customary in Japan – many of the murders there are committed with knives (the gun control is strict), but it is always done by stabbing. The throat wound signified Muslim involvement. Eventually the case had to be closed unsolved for lack of further evidence. When I asked him, if there are similar Muslim problems now, he replied that they have areas where compact groups of Muslim workers live (Japan doesn’t accept refugees), but the police don’t have the resources to watch what they do, so little is known about them.
It is difficult to eliminate the feeling of guilt that has been ingrained deliberately into the Japanese mind after the war, especially when Japan’s economic competitors – China and South Korea – try to keep it alive by inventing more and more (often baseless) accusations about the country’s past. However, Japan has a major advantage – unlike Western Europe and North America, where the rejection of their own culture has resulted in the mass spread of Third World savagery, Japan has still preserved most of its values and is reluctant to let the Muslim hordes in.
Just like in Western Europe, many in Japan are determined to resurrect nationalism, which will restore the dignity of its people and give purpose to the lives of millions. That is important especially now, when China gradually becomes the local imperialist power, which after the genocide in Tibet, is ready to expand its tentacles over Taiwan, Vietnam, the Philippines, and even Japan.
The new chaotic world requires bolder actions, without which it would be difficult to survive.
