Unconditional U.S. Citizenship Upon All the Judaists

Who the most influenced the media is one of the most significant questions nowadays.

However, in the U.S., how critical influences the Israel lobby has on the White House and Congress are might be the most significant question especially since the U.S. invasion of Iraq in March 2003...

Israel lobby in the United States

Mitchell Bard has conducted a study which attempts to roughly quantify the influence of the Israel lobby on 782 policy decisions, over the period of 1945 to 1984, in order to move the debate on its influence away from simple anecdotes. He

"found the Israeli lobby won; that is, achieved its policy objective, 60 percent of the time. The most important variable was the president's position. When the president supported the lobby, it won 95 percent of the time. At first glance it appears the lobby was only successful because its objectives coincided with those of the president, but the lobby's influence was demonstrated by the fact that it still won 27 percent of the cases when the president opposed its position."

According to a public opinion poll by Zogby International of 1,036 likely voters from October 10-12, 2006, 40% of American voters at least somewhat believe the Israel lobby has been a key factor in going to war in Iraq. The following poll question was used: "Question: Do you strongly agree, somewhat agree, somewhat disagree, or strongly disagree that the work of the Israel lobby on Congress and the Bush administration has been a key factor for going to war in Iraq and now confronting Iran?"


Both the Democrats and the Republicans are not the enemy for Israel. But, as Christians and Judaists are still the two different things, they still seem to need something called the lobby.

Pro-Israel lobby

In December 2002, Kathleen McGrath Christison and William Christison wrote in CounterPunch:[1]

"...policymaking circles throughout government now no longer even make a pretense of exhibiting balance between Israeli and Arab, particularly Palestinian, interests.
"In the Clinton administration, the three most senior State Department officials dealing with the Palestinian-Israeli peace process were all partisans of Israel to one degree or another. One of these officials had worked both as a pro-Israel lobbyist and as director of a pro-Israel think tank in Washington before taking a position in the Clinton administration from which he helped make policy on Palestinian-Israeli issues. Another has headed the pro-Israel think tank since leaving government.

"The link between active promoters of Israeli interests and policymaking circles is stronger by several orders of magnitude in the Bush administration, which is peppered with people who have long records of activism on behalf of Israel in the United States, of policy advocacy in Israel, and of promoting an agenda for Israel often at odds with existing U.S. policy. These people, who can fairly be called Israeli loyalists, are now at all levels of government, from desk officers at the Defense Department to the deputy secretary level at both State and Defense, as well as on the National Security Council staff and in the vice president's office.

If all the Americans come to regard Israel as essential part of the United States, though in the form of an independent nation, no lobby is needed any more.

But, I rather recommend to amend the American Constitution so as to include a new provision defining all the Judaists (hence virtually all the Israelis) as American citizens, though it might not be so practical to define all the Christians as American citizens.

Then, peace will return to Palestine like 100 years, 1000 years, 2,000 years, and 4,000 years ago.

(Un têtard est un enfant d'une grenouille, ma princesse. It is not a grandchild of a catfish. However, Jesus Christ is the son of the God, according to the Pope. )

Dan 7:10 A fiery stream issued and came forth from before him: thousand thousands ministered unto him, and ten thousand times ten thousand stood before him: the judgment was set, and the books were opened.

Dan 7:11 I beheld then because of the voice of the great words which the horn spake: I beheld even till the beast was slain, and his body destroyed, and given to the burning flame.

Dan 7:12 As concerning the rest of the beasts, they had their dominion taken away: yet their lives were prolonged for a season and time.

"Saying, Salvation to our God "

G8 Summit Observed from Japan (NHK TV)

JAPAN + G7, Correctly

The total of nonperforming and irrecoverable assets in the U.S. caused by the 2008 Financial Crisis is estimated to be $26.6 trillions.

The total of nonperforming and irrecoverable assets in Europe caused by the 2008 Financial Crisis is estimated to be $14.4 trillions.

The total of nonperforming and irrecoverable assets in Japan caused by the 2008 Financial Crisis is estimated to be $10 billions (though Japan suffered $1 trillion loss in its lost decade in 1990's).


It is also well known that funds infused by the Japanese financial sector into Wall Street since September 2008 has contributed to some early recovery of the U.S. financial sector.

What is more, while Chinese troops are now killing hundreds of Islamic citizens in its western territory and North Korea is developing nuclear-warhead ballistic missiles, the Asian market, including the Chinese market, is peacefully secured due to Japan's presence rather than U.S. military presence in this region.

Yet, the G8 Summit members are still making merry around President Mr. Barack Obama, as if he were the late Mr. Michael Jackson, while Prime Minister Mr. Taro Aso alone properly dressed in this summer meeting near Rome and the Vatican.

So, it is apparent the world is wrong; Japan is right, since Prime Minister Mr. Aso alone looks like a Roman Senator at L'Aquila, Italy (with others looking like Germanic chiefs).

SECTION I: Japanese Americans

There are 1,220,922 Japanese Americans in the U.S. today, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

Of them, the foreign borns account for 352,512, remarkably 247,748 of which are not American citizens.

Those classified as "one race" account for 70.8% of all these Japanese Americans, while the ratio of "one race" among the total U.S. population is 97.8%.;ACS_2007_1YR_G00_S0201PR:041;ACS_2007_1YR_G00_S0201T:041;ACS_2007_1YR_G00_S0201TPR:041&-_lang=en&-redoLog=false&-format=

It is well known that most of Japanese Americans, including those born in the United States, were treated as the enemy of America or regarded as not-genuine American citizens in the wake of the Pearl Harbor Attack in 1941.

However, it is impossible that the Japanese Government, in any era, asks anything of Japanese Americans if they have not Japanese nationality.

SECTION II: Religion of Japanese Americans

Americans' concept of religion is immature compared with that of Japanese.

Based on this immature standards, Americans sometimes try to measure the Japanese, resulting in frustration since they cannot understand the deep meaning and effect of the Japanese Buddhism.

A large number of the Japanese American community continue to practice Buddhism in some form, and a number of community traditions and festivals continue to center around Buddhist institutions. For example, one of the most popular community festivals is the annual Obon Festival, which occurs in the summer, and provides an opportunity to reconnect with their customs and traditions and to pass these traditions and customs to the young. These kinds of festivals are most popular in communities with large populations of Japanese Americans, such as in southern California or Hawaiʻi. It should be noted however, that a resonable number of Japanese people both in and out of Japan are secular as Shinto and Buddhism is most often practiced by rituals such as marriages or funerals, and not through faithful worship, as defines religion for many Americans.

For Japanese American Christians, the church is one of the most important cultural foundations. In California, Hawaiʻi and Washington, congregations can be composed entirely of Japanese Americans. In the rest of the country they tend to be accepted in predominately white churches.

Think of how Jesus Christ practiced his religion. It is not like Americans performing the so-called Christianity with their rough brain work but rather like Japanese living a moral daily life with their sensible heart work.

Anyway, it is astonishing that those Japanese Americans have inherited the essence of the Japanese Buddhism or spiritualism through their ancestors, no matter if they have family members of a different racial or cultural origin.

It suggests that the Japanese Buddhism or spiritualism can be a new global religion in the future (probably coupled with the faith in the God Almighty).

SECTION III: Religious War b/w Japan and America in 1940's

It is apparent that the deepest meaning of the war fought between the Empire of Japan and the U.S. as part of WWII is that it was virtually a religious war.

"So Great Faith, No, Not in Israel"

(You can smoke on the 44th floor in the Tokyo Metropolitan City Hall. Confirmed it?!)

Where Have They Gone, Experts and Professionals?

It is too much to be honored by the Japanese Government, if not by the God, for the invention of a new type of electric cars; but remember I presented one with a wind-powered engine a year ago, before the Lehman Brothers' shock, though most of viewers seem to have just laughed...

SECTION I: Frivolous Anti-America Camp in Japan

There is strong domestic criticism on the Japanese Government, since it has been very pro-America.

Especially, the Koizumi-Bush relationship has been a target for criticism by opposition parties and their supporters.

Even some prominent liberal commentators said, before September 2008, that as a share of America in Japan's trade was declining, the Government had to be cool to America.

Many armature citizens in the anti-ruling party camp said, before September 2008, that as the U.S. economic power was waning, the Government had to be cool to America.

Such anti-LDP people in Japan often said, before September 2008, as the U.S. Government and its financial sector were exploiting and abusing Japan's assets, the Government had to be cool to America.

Some opposition party members and their supporters virtually claimed, before September 2008, that Japan does not need the American market and American friends, including Mr. George W. Bush.

Then, the financial crisis came in September 2008. Japan's export to the U.S. fell by 10%, 20%, or even 30% to 40% by sector. Even Toyota's sales dropped by 40%. Tens of thousands of Japanese workers have lost their jobs.

And, no one in Japan today claims that Japan does not need the American market and American friends.

Yet, no one in Japan today admits how immature they have been.

That is why if the new Japanese Government highly expected to be formed by the Democratic Party of Japan after the coming general election is manned by such anti-America guys who do not yet sincerely regret what they said on the Japan-U.S. relationship before September 2008, Japan might lose both American friends and the American market, leading to another tens of thousands of job loss.

What is worse, there is a fear that those armature-class DPJ politicians after holding power and forming a Cabinet in Tokyo might become the too-naive and easy enemy (or counterparts) for politicians in Washington D.C., including President Mr. Barack Obama and Secretary Mrs. Clinton.

That is why many responsible or veteran politicians in Japan are nowadays busy and troubled, if not looking like a pierrot, since the regime change in Japan from the LDP-dominant to the DPJ-dominant Government is surely about to be realized in a month or two, as many Japanese voters who have lost jobs since the 2008 financial crisis would vote for the DPJ candidates.


There is some controversy about President Mr. Obama's choice for new ambassadors to Tokyo and Beijing:
JULY 6, 2009
Donors Find a Home in Obama's Ambassador Corps


The U.S. Embassy in Tokyo has seen its share of luminaries in the ambassador's suite. Former Vice President Walter Mondale, former Senate Majority Leaders Mike Mansfield and Howard Baker and former House Speaker Tom Foley are among those who have brokered relations with a complex and critical ally in a region bristling with military and trade tensions.

President Barack Obama's pick for the post is from a different mold: John Roos, a San Francisco Bay area lawyer, was the president's chief Silicon Valley fundraiser and contributions "bundler." He has no diplomatic experience...

"We're not only insulting nations [that] we're appointing these bundlers to, we're risking U.S. diplomatic efforts in these key countries," said Craig Holman, a government-affairs lobbyist at watchdog group Public Citizen...

The Japanese now appear to be making the best of Mr. Roos's eventual arrival. The Nihon Keizai Shimbun business daily said the U.S.-Japan relationship has grown so mature that it doesn't require a big name as a go-between.

A White House official offered Tokyo some reassuring words: "John Roos is very close to the president, and having that can be very important."

One thing sure about the new ambassador to Japan is that he will be very rich and famous in the international community when he leaves the position.

Obama naming Huntsman ambassador to China


Huntsman was apparently not the first person Obama considered for the post. Foreign Policy’s The Cable blog reported in April that several people had turned down the job, including former Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.) and Obama’s transition chief John Podesta.

Huntsman also wasn't a likely choice, given his strong Republican ties. The blog did not include Huntsman on a speculative list of nominees, including retired admiral Bill Owens, economic adviser Laura D’Andrea Tyson, and former Rep. Jim Leach (R-Iowa), who endorsed Obama during the presidential campaign.

Still, his credentials for the post are solid.

Huntsman, 49, served a Mormon mission in Taiwan. The governor and his wife, Mary Kaye, adopted a daughter, Gracie Mei, from China in 1999. In 2006, he led a trade mission to China "because of their prominence on the world stage and the way in which they are growing so rapidly," he told the Deseret Morning News of Salt Lake City.

He served as a deputy assistant secretary of the Commerce Department’s Trade Development Bureau under former President George H.W. Bush, who appointed him as Singapore ambassador in June 1992. Huntsman was identified in news reports at the time as a political donor, bundling contributions from different people for Bush’s reelection.

Huntsman also took a role in President George W. Bush's administration, serving as Deputy U.S. Trade Ambassador from 2001 to 2003...

The Chinese Government must have asked the Bushes to exert their influence on President Obama's friends.

The Chinese Government must have asked President Obama's friends to recommend President Mr. Obama to install a pro-China guy as the ambassador to China and an amateur guy as the ambassador to Japan, in my guess.

SECTION III: Lost Hope, Lost Fear

A divorced man, 41-years old, fired a pachinko-gamble parlor in Osaka, Japan, in the daytime a few days ago.

Using gasoline and matches, he actually killed four people and injured scores, running away for a few days and finally submitting himself to the police to accept a death penalty.

He had been a gasoline-tank truck driver before he left the job last year, due to the crazy oil price hike.

Then after this news spread all over Japan, a middle-aged Chinese woman was arrested for an attempt of murder by using gasoline and a lighter on a woman who works in a public employment agency around Tokyo, since the Chinese woman could not get satisfactory aid from the female civil-service worker, though the Chinese woman reportedly married a Japanese man to live in Japan.

The speculation in the crude oil market in the U.S. has resulted in the murder of four victims in Osaka and the one attempt around Tokyo, both using gasoline fired as a murder weapon.

Both the violators reportedly said that they wanted to die but first had to take such an action against others.

So, the regime change in Japan is considered as the most possible.

That is all for today, since I do not smoke outside nowadays, though I would in a car (legally parked) as electric cars seem to be getting popular.

"Go Ye Up unto this Feast "

(Like the Tokyo Governor...; click to enlarge as usual.)

"Hot Summer in Tokyo and Xinjiang"

Tokyo Governor Mr. Shintaro Ishihara was decades ago regarded as a strong candidate for a future Japanese Prime Minister, since he had a unique younger brother, Yujiro Ishihara, one of the most popular actor in Japan.

But, Yujiro Ishihara died of a disease; Mr. Shintaro Ishihara was alienated from the mainstream of the ruling party so that he stopped to run for national elections since 1995, putting an end to his chance of becoming prime minister of Japan, though he succeeded in extending his career to be first elected as Tokyo Governor in 1999.

Mr. Shintaro Ishihara is hated by the pro-China camp in the Japanese political community. Legendary but still-influential Former Prime Minister Mr. Yasuhiro Nakasone, Mr. Ishihara's old friend, is also hated by the pro-China camp in the Japanese political community.

As incumbent Prime Minister Mr. Taro Aso is also hated by the pro-China camp in the Japanese political community, if the ruling Liberal Democratic Party is lost in both the coming Tokyo metropolitan assembly election and the national Lower House election, it is expected that the Chinese Government would leverage the situation to their advantage in their diplomatic and political operation against Japan, which Former Prime Minister Mr. Yasuhiro Nakasone, a WWII veteran, seems to be worried about.

Accordingly, if the very possible DPJ Government in Japan, after the general election, takes a very pro-China stance, the political situation in East Asia might shift very favorably on China now violently suppressing Islamic Uygurs in Xinjiang who want their Independence from the Communist Beijing Government.

SECTION I: America for Judaists

Why did not Judaists take the opportunity to leave the Vatican-dominant Europe for the new world in the late 19th century?

Every Judaist in Europe then must heard of the news about the Civil War being erupted in America to abolish slavery.

It was the only chance for Judaists to avoid the great massacre in 1940's, since the Civil War was also for the salvation of Judaists as much as of African Americans.

Jews in America: Our Story

Across Europe, economic changes brought on by industrialization, combined with government restrictions on Jewish marriage, residence, and employment, led many working-class and poor Jews -- especially single men -- to emigrate in search of economic opportunities and political rights. Between 1820 and 1880, about 150,000 European Jews immigrated to America, joining the few thousand Jews already there. While the majority of the Jewish immigrants came from German-speaking countries and regions -- particularly Bavaria, Baden, and other states along the Rhine -- many also came from Prussian-ruled Poland and Lithuania, French Alsace, and the lands ruled by the Hapsburgs (including Bohemia, Moravia, Galicia, Slovakia, and Hungary). By 1880, America was home to approximately 240,000 Jews, and had become one of the largest Jewish communities in the world.

The Jews from Central Europe soon greatly outnumbered the existing Sephardic elite, and it was the culture of the immigrants that soon came to define American Jewish life. While most of the immigrants quickly embraced English, many continued to hold German culture in high regard. Rabbis gave sermons in German, and some immigrants saw to it that their children learned how to speak German and appreciate German literature, art, and music. Jews often took part in and even organized cultural events of the wider German immigrant community. ----DONNA GALLERS

It is unbelievable, since Judaists must not have loved the German culture so much, so long as they had left Germany for America where the Civil War was going on.

Even in America, the old European style colonialism based on slavery was going to be abolished. Juadaist immigrants should have found a new paradigm. They had to realize that the future of all the Judaists was not in Europe any more but in America.

They had to relinquish every cultural and spiritual assets they had brought from Europe, in order to build new Palestine or Israel in America. Judaist immigrants should have called other Judaists remaining in Europe to abandon life in Europe and move to America in a mass.

Indeed, the Civil War was, above all, a warning sign to Judaists in Europe. They all should have left Europe to join America, since someday such a scale of war might have happened and actually happened over themselves in Europe.

Truly, their adherence to the German or European culture made them blind; they should have adhered to Judaism but not the European or German culture, so that they would have loved America more.

After all, the World War II on the European stage was actually a Civil War in Europe over emancipation of Juadists.


The U.S. Government had better organize the G11 Summit if it cannot sustain the G8 Summit:
5. UK

It is so, since they are the true stakeholders for the U.S.

U.S. businesses have truly found a great market in China since the beginning of the 21st century. This trend is going to couple the two countries in a different manner observed between Japan and the U.S. And a prospect is not necessarily rosy for the both. Both the U.S. and China will have to hedge their business and security on Japan.

In summary, the more the U.S. and China get engaged in their trade, the more Japan will be appreciated it its role as a kind of in-between; I am rather optimistic in this regard.

"Ask, and It Shall Be "

(Tokyo Prefecture Government Office Building, Shinjuku-Ward, Tokyo-To)

Global Agenda than Political Fight

Tokyo Governor Mr. Shintaro Ishihara, a political and cultural hero since 1960's, spent (or still periodically spends) a week or so in a certain sanatorium for his health control.

Some politicians, including ex-state ministers, also spent (or still periodically spend) a week or so in the same sanatorium for their health control.

Accordingly, the sanatorium got popular around the national Diet or Parliament, according to a book written by a medical doctor who runs the sanatorium.

( )

The most striking part in the book is the author's claim that a man should sometimes abstain from food like Muslims.

A man must experience any little hunger in his daily life if he wants to live long, or to 120 years old.

However, it is thought that a half of the Japanese people are not hungry at all before any meal of the day.

I think that 75% of the American population are not hungry at all before any meal of the day.

If more Americans experience a sense of hunger in daily life, health insurance and medicare budgetary problems will be solved.

SECTION I: Criminal Speculation in Crude Oil

The petroleum price has been an indicator for financial crimes on Wall Street as was proven in 2008.

It must be at maximum around 60 dollars per barrel, since this price level allows for accommodating the development of oil shale and oil sands abundant in the U.S. and Canada in an quantity surpassing the oil deposit in Saudi Arabia.

In a decade or two, cars driven by other fuels or energy than gasoline will be the mainstream. Power generation without burning crude oil will be the mainstream, too. Mankind will use petroleum resources more wisely. But, speculation in the crude oil market is a crime as proven in 2008.

SECTION II: G8 and G8+ Summit Agenda

It must be the dollar. It must be how to take preventive measures against a possible financial disaster triggered by the fall of the value of the U.S. dollar in future.

Crude Oil and Islam, Will America Shift Away from Its Past Unilateralist Policies?
Jun 16, 2009 - 12:51 AM

The Historical Importance to America of Dollar-Denominated Oil

For over three decades, as I have argued elsewhere, America has propped up the dollar by ensuring that all OPEC oil payments would be dollar-denominated, thus creating an artificial need for dollars in oil-deprived nations around the world.9 But this system may become less relevant, as more and more oil deals, such as China’s $10 billion oil deal with Brazil, are made outside of the American and OPEC orbits.10

Iran has been selling its oil for euros for quite some time. A lot of its international deals are denominated in euros. As are Russia's, China's and Brazil's. Adding Brazil to the mix strengthens the movement away from the dollar in our own hemisphere. Brazil has been moving in this direction since 2005, Venezuela has been pushing this since 2007.11

Most Americans are unaware that in 2003 Saddam Hussein had begun to sell Iraqi oil for euros as well as dollars, and that Bush, two months after invading Iraq, enacted an emergency order which, with the misleading title of "Protecting the Development Fund for Iraq," secretly ended Iraq's euro sales of oil. The U.S. press, unlike the Irish Times and the UK Financial Times, took no notice of this.

As I wrote in The Road to 9/11,

The United States acted swiftly to ensure that oil would remain dominantly a dollar commodity, by an executive order empowering Iraqi oil sales to be returned from euros to dollars. Bush’s order of May 22, 2003, declaring a "national emergency," did not directly mention the dollar as such; but it directed all oil earnings into a central fund, controlled by the United States, for reconstruction projects in Iraq.[12] The Financial Times, on June 6, 2003, confirmed that Iraqi oil sales were now switched back from euros to dollars.13

Most Americans are also unaware that on May 20, 2009 Obama explicitly renewed, rather than canceled, Bush’s emergency order 13303 for the use of the dollar in Iraq’s oil dealings. Once again, the language of Obama’s emergency order concealed its implications.14

President Mr. Barack Obama's No.1 agenda must be also set around the overseas credibility and integrity of the dollar.

It is so, since the U.S. dollar is a symbol of every merit the U.S. has.

However, as people in the world see a dollar bill to dream of going to America and having a rich life there while leaving all the poor friends behind, the dollar is very sinful. The U.S. dollar must be a future target of an Angel of Holy Punishment.

SECTION III: Prophetic 570, 610, and 632

So far as now, it has been true that the Qur'an was the last book of God, and respectable Mohammad was the last prophet, since a billion human beings cannot be duped for 1400 years.

5. Islam (4)
The Founder

Mohammad was born in 570 AD in Mecca , in Arabia , to a family of the Quraysh tribe. His father died before his birth, and his mother died when he was only six, so Mohammad was raised first by his grandfather, and later by his uncle...

In the year 610, Mohammad claimed to have his first revelation – a vision of the Archangel Gabriel, who told him that he was to be a prophet...

In the year 632, Mohammad made a final pilgrimage to Mecca . with over 100,000 of his followers, and gave his last sermon. He died a few months later (July 6, 632) in Medina...

Yet, the God or Allah did not say to Christian Israelites that Islam would emerge 600 years after the leave of Jesus Christ.

There must have been something very important for all the mankind the God or Allah did not say to Mohammad in the seventh century.

Anyway, let's carefully and respectfully examine the Koran:
The Meaning of the Glorious Qur'ân, by M.M. Pickthall, at

5. al-Ma'idah: The Food

114 Jesus, son of Mary, said: O Allah, Lord of us! Send down for us a table spread with food from heaven, that it may be a feast for us, for the first of us and for the last of us, and a sign from Thee. Give us sustenance, for Thou art the Best of Sustainers.

115 Allah said: Lo! I send it down for you. And whoso disbelieveth of you afterward, him surely will I punish with a punishment wherewith I have not punished any of (My) creatures.

It is a little strange not to read that Jesus is the Son of the God, but a son of Mary. Accordingly, I recommend you not to discuss the parents of Jesus Christ, since the God or Allah is almighty while Islam is just a religion of mankind if not solely of respectable Mohammad.

"The Commandment of God"

("To-Cho-Mae" means an "entrance to the Tokyo prefecture government office, since "To" is for a capital prefecture; and "Cho" in Japanese means a governmental office.)

Now, His Majesty the Emperor and Her Majesty the Empress are on a goodwill tour in Canada. Prime Minister Mr. Taro Aso of Japan is flying to Italy for the G8 Summit (though President Mr. Barack Obama has visited Moscow).

Yet, Tokyo looked very peaceful yesterday, since I saw only four to five shanties covered by big blue sheets built by homeless people to live in on the bank of a big holy river flowing through Tokyo town areas to the Tokyo Bay.

SECTION I: Evil Puritanism?

There is one important common notion between Christianity and Buddhism: a bad man works hard violently to earn big money; a righteous man works hard to peacefully save the poor.

(If you try to save poor people, you will inevitably get poor, since you have to give your money to the poor.)

Accordingly, being a hard working and rich man proves that the man has an evil spirit.

But, being a hard worker and at the same time a poor man proves that the man has right faith.

Simply observed, Puritanism distorted the teaching of Jesus Christ. Americans came to believe that a hard working and thus rich man has a respectable personality, which is so ridiculous. Americans came to believe that a poor man must be lazy and irreligious so that they must be despised, which is so anti-Christ.

But, even today, in Japan, the original Buddha's teaching is respected so that poor men are not despised only for their bring poor. Yet, even today, in America, the distorted Puritanism teaching is deplorably respected so that poor men are despised only for their bring poor.

Japanese are more close to the teaching of Jesus Christ than Americans are. This ridiculous situation was resulted from diffusion of the distorted Puritanism among Americans.

After the 17th cent. the Puritans as a political entity largely disappeared, but Puritan attitudes and ethics continued to exert an influence on American society. They made a virtue of qualities that made for economic success—self-reliance, frugality, industry, and energy—and through them influenced modern social and economic life. Their concern for education was important in the development of the United States, and the idea of congregational democratic church government was carried into the political life of the state as a source of modern democracy. Prominent figures in New England Puritanism include Thomas Hooker, John Cotton, Roger Williams, Increase Mather, and Cotton Mather.

The issue is for what and whom a man has become rich. If for himself and his pride, it is anti-Christ. If for other poor men and glory of the God, he can be condoned by Jesus Christ.

In this respect, Puritanism is unbelievably immature like so many rich Americans.

Do not be fooled by them, even if they are proud of the American democracy over the Islam and the Buddhism as they might be thinking that without American Christianity there cannot be true democracy.

SECTION II: A Miracle between Japan and Islam

Almost 100 years after the establishment of Islam in the Middle East in the seventh century, its information and proof was conveyed to Japan.

NARA, Japan, July 3 (AP) - (Kyodo)—Pieces of an Islamic ceramic vase dating back to the late eighth century have been discovered in Nara Prefecture, making it possibly the oldest Islamic porcelain found in Japan, Nara city government researchers said Friday.

Nineteen pieces with a blue-green exterior and dark green interior surface were unearthed at Saidaiji Temple in the ancient Japanese capital...

What were previously thought to be the oldest Islamic ceramics in Japan were found in Fukuoka Prefecture, but the latest find from the Abbasid Caliphate appears roughly a century older, they said...

This Islamic vase is believed to have been created in Iraq of the 8th century and carried into Japan though the Indian Ocean, East and South China Seas.

When U.S. troops left Baghdad, the very old Islamic vase was discovered in Japan (though not first in Japan) as if celebrating.

Indeed, what Iraq needs now is not U.S. troops but Japanese businesses, since almost 100,000 innocent Iraqi civilians were killed unduly since the U.S. military invasion in 2003.

SECTION III: Japan's Constuitution and the Koran

If a national budget is in red, a government has to use its endeavors for the promotion and extension of social welfare and security, and of public health. In order to fulfill this duty, a government has to exercise power to set the allowable maximum rich life (rather than a tax rate for the wealthy) over which any individual assets shall be transferred to the government at least partially, since without the poor the rich cannot stay rich in the current economic system.

Article 25:
All people shall have the right to maintain the minimum standards of wholesome and cultured living. 2) In all spheres of life, the State shall use its endeavors for the promotion and extension of social welfare and security, and of public health.

Let's also examine carefully and respectfully the Koran:
5. al-Ma'idah: The Food

Allah made a covenant of old with the Children of Israel and We raised among them twelve chieftains, and Allah said: Lo! I am with you. If ye establish worship and pay the poor-due, and believe in My messengers and support them, and lend unto Allah a kindly loan, surely I shall remit your sins, and surely I shall bring you into Gardens underneath which rivers flow. Whoso among you disbelieveth after this will go astray from a plain road.

The Japanese land is a kind of heaven full of rivers and rice in addition to good natured people at least since 2000 years ago.

Mar 7:7 Howbeit in vain do they worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.

Mar 7:8 For laying aside the commandment of God, ye hold the tradition of men, as the washing of pots and cups: and many other such like things ye do.

Mar 7:9 And he said unto them, Full well ye reject the commandment of God, that ye may keep your own tradition.
