Sensei258, your post made perfect sense, asking where the Father (of the deceased baby) was.

Strangerland's answer was either deliberately obtuse, or someone still picking up the nuances of the English language.

A few of facts:

A founding Zionist movement, Bar-Giora, mission statement from 1907 read:

"In fire and blood did Judea fall; in blood and fire Judea shall rise."

As the last British ship left Palestine at the end of the British Mandate, the sailors on board could see the Arab homes in Acre on fire and under attack by Zionist Extremists - source BBC Radio 4 program 'Any Answers' most recent podcast at 10mins 50secs.

Hamas was pursuing the diplomatic path by forming a Unity Palestinian Government with Fatah. Israel's reaction to this diplomatic action has been to try to bomb Hamas out of existence.

If you remove the right to question the official version of the truth then the truth is dead.

I know that the Holocaust actually happened, but I started off knowing nothing about it. I was educated about it, but it just all seemed too horrible, too inhuman. I read more and more about it over the years, and discovered many interesting things, some of which contradicted the earlier, simplified, version that I learned at school. The school version was the "official" version, the one set down in the government-mandated textbooks. It turns out that a lot of it was actually simplified to the point where it was no longer true.

Of course the right to question is already dead in America and Japan. The new secrecy laws make it illegal to even pursue knowledge about something that is deemed secret, without even the transparency of allowing people to know what IS secret. In effect this is a great Holocaust, the holocaust of truth, burnt on the altar of fear and paranoia.

JT - give that poster a job! Some of the best prose i have read here.

Very sad case, and until i have 'walked a mile in the Mother's shoes' i will not pass or speculate on judgement.

Rest-in-Peace child. You are now free of these earthly bonds.

Only ever had one Japanese girlfriend, for about 18mths - we met on holiday in Maroc. She visited me a twice in UK and i visited her once in Japan.

Most bizarre 'relationship' experience of my life. Wouldn't touch it again with a barge pole - mad as a box of frogs!

globalwatcher: In contrary to your post, I was told he devoted himself for a new life in Brazil with the locals and found peace with God. Better than the rest of us.

Not better than me - i've never murdered anyone.

This man took 30 peoples lives for no good reason.

He was a mass murderer. End of.

An 'Intelligence' Officer who took 30 years to realise he was beaten - no wonder Japan lost the war !!

He was a fanatical mass murderer and should have been treated as such.

Posted in: Israel PM slams EU 'hypocrisy' on settlements See in context

Netanyahu annoyed that UK, France, Italy & Spain protested about Israel's continued ethnic cleansing.

The man is the most dangerous person in the middle east - 'we' should send a peace keeping force to protect the Palestinians and to keep this mad mad in check.

Any Brits attacking Abe here need to stand down.

'We' are commemorating Lord Kitchener on a new £2 coin. He was responsible for the deaths of 26,000 women and children from starvation and disease in Concentration Camps during the Boer War.

For 18mths an average of 50 children died each and every day in these camps.
