"The Mystery of the Kingdom of God"

(Thus two White Whales were spared...since there were young and hopeful...)

"The Mystery of the Kingdom of God"

First of all, not all the people feel and think in the same manner you do.

Somebody hates the number "4" and others hate the number "13."

Today, I saw three different cars each of which had the license plate number "1."

I mean that their license numbers were all literally "...1" but not "00-01," though you may regard it as "00-01."

For the first time in my life, I have encountered three different cars in a time interval of 10 to 30 minutes each of which has the license plate number "...1" while tens of thousands of cars are running on these streets around Tokyo...

(There is a rumor that you can buy such a lucky license number from its legal and original owner through private negotiations.

Only vehicles owned by the Japanese Self Defence Force seem to have a different and unique license number system in Japan.

My old cars had always humble license numbers as are usual for all the commodities around me, though I know what they are who are in the opposite situation...)

Now the year 2003 is part of history, since President Mr. George W. Bush left the office some time ago.

TIME Magazine's Asian Heroes Collection of 2003:
Satoshi Fukushima
Sightless Visionary
By Jim Frederick/Tokyo

Satoshi Fukushima was not born into a world of darkness and silence—it closed in on him slowly.
Fukushima says he has one major goal to accomplish: he wants to establish the Japanese equivalent of the Helen Keller National Center for Deaf-Blind Youths and Adults, a pioneering educational, research, vocational and rehabilitation center for the deaf-blind in America.

Ryuichi Sakamoto
Good deeds on the cutting edge
By Jim Frederick

At a recording studio in Tokyo's forever-young Shibuya district, Ryuichi Sakamoto pushes up the sleeves of his rust-color sweater and leans back in his chair.
"I'd love to play a concert among a sea of windmills which are powering the concert itself. That," he says, grinning broadly, "would be beautiful.

Hideki Matsui
Godzilla Vs. the Americans
By Robert Whiting

It was finally time to face the cameras. Baseball slugger Hideki Matsui looked at the heaving battery of reporters in the banquet room of Tokyo's plush Imperial Hotel and cleared his throat.
"It was a valuable lesson for me," he said. "From that day on, I resolved never to lose control of my emotions in a game again."

To tell the truth, Japanese heroes in 2003 were Prime Minister Mr. Junichiro Koizumi and five Japanese citizens who had been abducted by North Korean agents in 1970's but were allowed to return to Japan late in 2002 through diplomatic efforts by Mr. Koizumi and Mr. Shinzo Abe, then Deputy Chief Cabinet Secretary.

Since 2003, the American defence industry took advantage of a boom. Incredible business chances must have been offered to them with the launch of the Iraqi War. Accordingly, rich men, very rich men, and super rich men in the industry got further richer. And, who would do a number on them as they were waging Stars and Stripes?

Yet, your concern must be whether they could comment intelligently on Mr. Barack Obama's startling accession to the U.S. Presidency, since the War in Iraqi served as a precursor for Mr. Obama's presidency.

And, of course, the decisive factor for realization of President Mr. Obama is that fall of Wall Street in September 2008.

In short, the realization of the first half-African/half-European American president owed to the Iraqi War since 2003 and the fall of Wall Street since 2008.

But, which is more significant in history: the first half-African/half-European American president or the combined American crisis of the War on Terror and the fall of Wall Street?

Anyway, there are three historic incidents already in the 21st century: the War on Terror; the Fall of Wall Street; and President Mr. Barack Hussein Obama.

But, the main concern of EEE Reporter is the Vatican, 100km from which a great earthquake occurred recently.

It is so, since complete change in religion of the Vatican would have an influence on the world graver than the combined effect of the War on Terror, the Fall of Wall Street, and President Mr. Barack Hussein Obama.

I think it can be the only incident for mankind where one might be able to have a glimpse of, say, the kingdom of God, so long told and interpreted all in vain to comprehend it.

C'est tout pour aujourd'hui, mon cher ami.

(If someone stopped me, why not am I allowed to draw the evil-destroying sword against this villain, since I am dreaming of a voyage on golden and silver waves of an ocean while drinking under sakura cherry blossom trees in the high garden of the First High School of the Empire of Japan, sang Imperial students of Japan once but a century ago...

Donc, je vais boire sous cerisiers en fleurs lorsque les ennemis sont 100 kilomètres loin.

Mar 4:10 And when he was alone, they that were about him with the twelve asked of him the parable.

Mar 4:11 And he said unto them, Unto you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God: but unto them that are without, all these things are done in parables:

Mar 4:12 That seeing they may see, and not perceive; and hearing they may hear, and not understand; lest at any time they should be converted, and their sins should be forgiven them.

"In Right Paths"

(Japan in Spring)

"In Right Paths"

(In Preparation...)

Rich men, very rich men, and super rich men never study history in earnest.

Rich men, very rich men, and super rich men never follow teaching of religion.

It is because history and religion tell them to abandon their wealth and power.

Moreover, they think they do not need history or religion to enjoy their life.

But, what is worse is that they encourage young people to follow them, neglecting history and religion so as to be rich, very rich, and super rich.

Now, the state of history in the early 21st century is as follows, since we have to study history to follow teachings of the God.

The state of Japan in the early 21st century is expressed in the article below:

REFILING: Japan's 2007 net external assets hit record 250 tril. yen+

Active securities investment overseas by Japanese investors outpaced nonresidents' investment in Japanese markets in 2007, prompting the balance of Japan's net external assets to hit yet another record high of 250.22 trillion yen at the end of the year, the Finance Ministry said Friday.
After Japan, Germany ranked second with net external assets worth 107.57 trillion yen as of Dec. 31, 2007. It was followed by China, Hong Kong and Switzerland, with figures for all three based on data as of the end of 2006.

China's holding more than doubled in 2006 to 78.75 trillion yen at the end of the year. The United States was the world's largest debtor as of the end of 2006 with 302.09 trillion yen worth of net external debts.

The balance of net external assets is calculated by subtracting the total amount of loans, direct investment and other forms of investment in Japan by nonresident investors from those made overseas by Japanese public and private sectors as well as individuals.

The state of the world in the early 21st century is shown in the figure below:

Among those major financial powers in the world, only Japan is unique in that its economic success is based on its unique civilization that can stand against the European civilization.

The U.S. is just on extension of the European civilization; Brazil is on extension of the European civilization; India's modern infrastructures were built under the British colonization; and Chinese social systems and governmental functions are based on the European philosophy, though from the beginning modern Chinese are materialistic.

That is why politicians, economists, journalists, and pundits in the world often sense something difficult to understand in the Japanese success; and thus they hate it rather than respect it.

In other word, Japanese rich men belong to the Japanese civilization; but rich men in the world usually belong to the paradigm of the European Civilization.

Accordingly, I once declared that mankind has only two types of its members: Japanese and the rest of mankind.

If you cannot accept it, observe carefully rich men, very rich men, and super rich men in the world. The more you check them, the more they look like each other.

Indeed, Japanese spiritualism makes the Japanese people oriented to being poor, no matter how large wealth the nation Japan has.

Truly, Jesus Christ said that people are divided into the poor and the rich.

"Living Water"

(Spring Evening and Dusk around Tokyo; Flowers, Birds, Wind, and the Moon...)

"Living Water"

Japan's Prime Minister Mr. Taro Aso is said to have been raised in a house where a butler took care of him.

But, I would only hire myself in case, if I have to one.

So, you must not misunderstand me, if you think I could hurl a very big shoe to Wall Street over the Pacific Ocean at any time, whenever Allah so wishes.

So then, folks, say, in New Orleans, what's going on in Asia now so godlessly?

Kabul reviews controversial law on women's rights

After a flood of criticism by Western governments, Afghanistan plans to review a law recently approved by President Hamid Karzai accused of violating the rights of Shiite minority women. The law notably includes legalising marital rape.

Pyongyang vows 'strong steps' if censured by UN

A North Korean diplomat has warned that Pyongyang would react strongly to any action from the UN Security Council over its long-range rocket launch, saying any censure would "infringe upon the sovereignty of our country".

Europeans and European Americans must have a sense of superiority in viewing these deplorable situations in Asia.

But, they cannot have such superiority to one Asian nation: Japan.

...Country....No. of Nobel Prize Winners....

Now you must know why their attitudes toward Japan and China in the G20 London Conference were so wrong and shameful.

"Him Only Shalt Thou Serve"

"Him Only Shalt Thou Serve"

President Mr. Barack Obama in Baghdad, Iraq, itself is telling a change in a mood of the world.

However, what will come after the end of this global financial crisis might be the then-forgotten War on Terror.

Poll: More view Afghan war as 'mistake'

By Tom Vanden Brook, USA TODAY

WASHINGTON — American support for the war in Afghanistan has ebbed to a new low, as attacks on U.S. troops and their allies have hit record levels and commanders are pleading for reinforcements, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll shows.

In the poll taken Saturday and Sunday, 42% of respondents said the United States made "a mistake" in sending military forces to Afghanistan, up from 30% in February.

That's the highest mark since the poll first asked the question in November 2001 when the U.S.-led invasion ousted the Taliban government that sheltered al-Qaeda terrorists responsible for the 9/11 terror attacks.

In January 2002, 6% of respondents called the war "a mistake."

Yet, as Alexander the Great was stopped at Afghanistan 320 B.C. or so, the American Glory is to be stopped in the Afghan War in the 21st century.

And, as Alexander the Great lost his life in Baghdad 2300 years ago, the American Glory might be truly put an end to through its military involvement in Mesopotamia in the early 21st century.

Obama, who opposed the invasion of Iraq ordered by his predecessor George W. Bush, has used his debut overseas tour to reach out to the Islamic world and attempt to restore America's battered image abroad.

Ending the war which sparked an insurgency that cost thousands of lives would mark a new era of US diplomacy including "principled and sustained engagement" with Iraq's neighbours Iran and Syria, Obama has said.

Bush was the last US president to visit Iraq in a trip overshadowed by a local journalist who hurled his shoes at him.

Iraqi TV reporter Muntazer al-Zaidi gained global fame and was seen as hero in much of the Arab world for his farewell gesture to a deeply unpopular president.

He was jailed last month for three years by a Baghdad court, but the sentence was cut on Tuesday to one year by an appeals tribunal.

No matter how humble the act was, it was a kind of terror.

If you hurl anything, such as a shoe bomb or a plain shoe, to a man unarmed, no matter how high his rank is in military establishment, it cannot be an act of a brave man.

Accordingly, I do not regard it as an act of heroism.

Nonetheless, I am not against the court decision to shorten the term of imprisonment for the culprit.

"The Lord Thy God"

"The Lord Thy God"

(In Preparation...)

The Lord God said to me that there would be a miracle in the sky and wonders on the ground.

Indeed, North Korea failed in its relaese of an artificial satellite to a space orbit by the Taepodong-2 missile rocket on Sunday.

Truly, a great earthquake hit a city some 100km far from Rome, Italy, on Monday, taking 150 and more lives and destroying tens of thousands of houses.

In other word, North Korea has failed in posing a threat to Japan and the U.S.; Mt. Fuji, a great live volcao, 100km far from Tokyo still stands still.

*** *** *** ***

There is an American report book that seems to have heavily contributed to realization of the first-dark-skinned President of the United States of America:

Nickel and Dimed: On (Not) Getting By in America

Millions of Americans work full-time, year-round, for poverty level wages. During a literary lunch with one of her editors, distinguished journalist Barbara Ehrenreich was persuaded to join them and find out how an incredible 30 per cent of the population manage to survive on eight dollars an hour or less (answer: they do two jobs). With a start-up fund of a thousand dollars (more than most of these wage slaves can hope to save in a lifetime) she left her home in Florida and her partner behind her, took the cheapest lodgings she could find and accepted the first job she was offered (waitressing). For the next two years she worked her way around the US, in a succession of dead-end jobs - cleaning, care work, folding clothes at Wal-Mart. She lived, like her colleagues, in trailers and dingy motel rooms (few can afford the deposit and first month's rent on a decent apartment). The world she inhabited was governed by insane, Kafkaesque rules familiar to anyone who's ever held down a casual job - no 'comfort breaks'; no minimum wage for waitresses, because of the tips they (theoretically) receive; humiliating drug tests that exclude the most counter-productive drug of all (alcohol); personality tests designed - in the most transparent fashion - to sort the troublemakers from the team players. Of course, Ehrenreich had a get-out clause which she could invoke at any time, and she resolutely refuses to feel sorry for herself. She also knows that few of her co-workers have that luxury. They are the foot soldiers of the American Dream - understaffed, underpaid and underfed. Determined to remain detached, Ehrenreich still cares. Her reportage is tough and committed. It is also laugh-out-loud funny. A New York Times bestseller, the book carries a typically passionate introduction from Polly Toynbee. Don't buy from Wal-Mart. Buy this book instead. (Kirkus UK) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The most important reminder must be that President Mr. Barack Obama has never been a native hero in the domain of American poverty at all.

"An Offering unto the LORD"

(Last evening I saw miracles in the sky. Several jets were unusually crossing the dusk sky, as if racing. Then I heard a news report that North Korea failed in delivering the satellite from its missile rocket over the Pacific Ocean... )

"An Offering unto the LORD"

(North Korea Failed in Satellite Release)

(In Preparation...)

"North Korea failed in its highly vaunted effort to fire a satellite into orbit, military and private experts said Sunday after reviewing detailed tracking data that showed the missile and payload fell into the sea. Some said the failure undercut the North Korean campaign to come across as a fearsome adversary able to hurl deadly warheads halfway around the globe."

North Korea failed, since there is a reason for its failure.

The despotic nation has a radar capability that can only cover a 1,000km range, while depending on technical reports from Japan and the U.S. in tracking its long-range missile rocket, according to a military source of South Korea.

North Korea failed, since it has not released Japanese citizens abducted by them.

*** *** *** ***

In the G20 Economic Summit in London, they must have discussed a special measure to force rich people in the U.S. and the U.K. to buy evacuated homes due to subprime loan payment default.

It is very controversial for any government to force any rich citizens to buy any specific goods as a duty. However, in light of the scale of the financial crisis for which the U.S. and the U.K. are very responsible, they have to enforce such a measure so as to vitalize economy.

If the U.S. government order 10 million rich people to buy houses under foreclosure proceedings, credit supply to poor citizens can be improved and expanded. It will help economy get back on the track.

Even in the 1929 Great Depression, the U.S. Government should have ordered rich citizens to purchase something real, commercial, industrial, and international and invest in the Empire of Japan and other countries. Such ultimate enforcement must have really saved the world in 1930's and 1940's.

Gen 4:5 But unto Cain and to his offering he had not respect. And Cain was very wroth, and his countenance fell.

Gen 4:6 And the LORD said unto Cain, Why art thou wroth? and why is thy countenance fallen?

JAPAN vs North Korea's Missile Rocket

JAPAN vs North Korea's Missile Rocket

North Korea plans to launch a satellite with a missile rocket sometime between April 4 and April 8.

For this reason Japan's UN ambassador, Yukio Takasu, yesterday requested an emergency meeting of the Security Council to discuss possible sanctions against Pyongyang saying that the launch violates UN resolutions that ban further ballistic missile tests.

But China, North Korea’s main ally, is almost certain to veto new sanctions.

For their part the United States, Japan and South Korea have threatened to intercept the missile if it flies over their territory.

Japan plans not to intercept the missile rocket if it flies over its territory without a threat to Japan as planned by North Korea.

But, Japan is ready to intercept the missile rocket only if it should get out of the planned orbit and fall onto the Japan's territory by accident.

(Maybe to be continued...)

One hour after I wrote the above portion of today's special posting, North Korea actually fired its missile rocket to launch the so-called 2nd artificial satellite for North Korea since 1998.

One hour before now, namely 11:30 of Sunday in Japan, as I am writing this around 12:30, North Korea launched the Taepodong-2 missile rocket which flew over the Japanese territory without a trouble; but the final success of its space mission is yet to know.

(Maybe to be further continued...)

If North Korea would not come into negotiations for peace with Japan, especially, to address the freedom of a hundred or so Japanese citizens having been abducted by North Korean secret agents having been acting on mainland Japan since the Korean War, its success of launching a ballistic-missile-type rocket, which can reach Washington D.C., shall not be respected by the World.

Iran must not purchase such rockets from North Korea.
