Did Hiroshima also invite Hamas to come and attend?

Nice try Hiroshima, but don't hold your breath over this one.

The western Japanese city of Hiroshima has urged Israel to cease its offensive in Gaza in its invitations to the country's representatives to the Aug. 6 annual peace ceremony marking the atomic bombing of the city, a local government official said Thursday.

Good on them

Problem is that some Israeli policy makers have urged a nuke Gaza approach to the current :Arab/Palestinian problem "...{sarcasm alert

No, they haven’t. Some Hamas supporters would probably love to see that as that would indeed put (Hamas-supporting) Gazans at the Everestian summit of victimhood.

Inviting Herzog to Hiroshima is a futile appeal for a ceasefire when others in his government have justified the devastation of Gaza by citing what Americans did to Japanese civilians in WW2 and one maniac even going so far as to propose dropping a nuclear bomb on Palestinians is a tin-eared gesture devoid of sensitivity toward the 50,000 dead of Gaza and dishonors the memory of Hiroshima's victims to boot. Herzog himself has not been shy to use bloodthirsty rhetoric of revenge and retribution. As a symbol of Zionist fanaticism, no peacenik is he.

Good luck! Sadly, Israel isn't listening to anyone and just continuing with the slaughter!

The US has lost all credibility with its blind support for the war crimes Israel is commiting and disregard for world opinion!

That'll be the "antisemetic western Japanese city of Hiroshima has urged Israel to cease its offensive in Gaza" I'll have you know!

Which war ended in 1954?

Yes, and that is well-known.

Mind your business. Just because that happened doesn't make you some sort of peace envoy. You didn't strive for it. It got handed to you forcefully.

A weapons-manufacturing city during Japan's reign of terror throughout Asia. . .

The beautiful irony.

Asian countries that were colonies of European countries were liberated by the Japanese military. After Japan's defeat, the European countries returned, but some countries were defeated by the local residents and remnants of the Japanese military.

It was also thanks to Japan's bloody battles with European countries that Asian countries were able to gain independence.

The Japanese military's reign of terror? Do you believe in Chinese and Korean propaganda and fantasy?

Are you being serious? The Japanese themselves reported on the atrocities they committed

Are you talking about the people who were captured by the Chinese or Soviet military and started making a fuss about things that never happened after returning home?

Or is it the Asahi Shimbun's report that prostitutes who were abducted from Jeju Island in Korea, and the testimony of Yoshida Seiji, a pioneer of the comfort women issue, was ultimately found to be a lie?

If you know of any specific examples, even if they were statements made at the Tokyo Trials, please let me know.

Former Prime Minister of Thailand Kukrit Pramoj "Thanks to Japan, all Asian countries became independent. Mother Japan suffered a difficult birth and was injured, but her child is growing up healthy. Today, to whom do we owe it that the peoples of Southeast Asia can talk on an equal footing with America and Britain? It is because of Mother Japan, who "sacrificed herself to achieve benevolence." December 8th is the day that Mother, who showed us this important idea, made a serious decision at the risk of her own life. Furthermore, August 15th is the day that our precious Mother fell ill. We must not forget these two days."

What a bunch of hypocrites. Invite Israel but not Russia/Belarus.

-3 ( +0 / -3 )

Russia/Belarus have nothing to do with Israel/Gaza.

We all know that. Read the article.

The Hiroshima city government has been accused of double standards by some residents and activists after it emerged in April that while it will invite Israel, it will bar Russia and Belarus from the ceremony for a third straight year over the invasion of Ukraine.

Yeah, it does here if you actually read the article:

it will bar Russia and Belarus from the ceremony for a third straight year over the invasion of Ukraine.
