Christians that suffered immensely during the last 8 years in pretty much every possible way.

This statement is so grossly exaggerated that it is an insult to true Christians in Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, Nigeria, China and North Korea (who have really suffered or even died for their faith). Enough said.

Everyone, be prepared on your own (store water, a first aid kit, canned food, etc.) Many people (Japanese or otherwise) are going to be disappointed if they think the government here will be much help during a major earthquake (refer to Kobe 1995).

Posted in: Author Murakami calls for fight against history revisionism See in context
