400 Years Ago and 1492

If you like, please refer to a picture of snow taken by a homeless man in Tokyo.

It really exhibits a touch of Japanese traditional pictures.

CHAPTER I: Portuguese & Spanish in Japan 400 Years Ago

In the late 16th century, many ships sailed to India, Indochina, and East Asia from Portugal and Spain.

Some of them reached Japan. Accordingly, Portuguese and Spanish merchants and missionary priests were depicted by Japanese painters. Such a picture was often painted on a folding screen called "Byoubu." A folding screen with a picture of Portuguese and Spanish merchants and missionary priests on is called "Nanban Byoubu" as the following example (though it is said to have been created in the early 17th century by painter Kano Naizen).

(Click to enlarge.)

However, as Muslims had occupied and lived on the Iberian Peninsula between 711 and 1492, those Portuguese and Spanish merchants portrayed by Japanese painters look somewhat Arabian or Islamic.

It tells that unlike Anglo-Saxons Portuguese and Spanish merchants respected Muslims so that they wore clothes which looked more Arabian than European.

Most importantly, it was not power of Christianity but military forces of Europeans that drove out Muslims from the Iberian Peninsula finally in 1492.

Anyway, the first Europeans Japanese people encountered 400 years ago looked like Arabians or Muslims.

CHAPTER II: 1492 for Christianity and Islam

Of course, without the year of 1492, there could be no Christians in America and even in Europe today.

Then, we must know that "the God and Allah" has really created Islam as the sole religion for peoples living in the west of the Indus.

But, 1492 came to exist. And, the potential glory of Islam as the sole religion for peoples living in the west of the Indus has not been realized.

Yet, it should be noted that these 2000 years could be roughly divided as follows:

AD 1 to 500: Emergence of Christianity and Establishment of the Vatican

500 to 1000: Emergence and Establishment of Islam

1000 to 1500: Conflicts between Christians and Muslims

1500 to 2000: Emergence and Establishment of American Dream

So, the year 1492 symbolizes the start of the last era of these 2000 years since the birth of Christ Jesus.

Ask anybody in Tunisia, he will answer, "Yes, I want to go, live, and realize my American Dream!"

Ask anybody in Egypt, he will answer, "Yes, I want to go, live, and realize my American Dream!"

Ask anybody in Bahrain, he will answer, "Yes, I want to go, live, and realize my American Dream!"

Ask anybody in Libya, he will answer, "Yes, I want to go, live, and realize my American Dream!"

The year of 2001 might be the start of growth of American Dream with Islamic elements.

So, it is no wonder that Mr. Barack Obama, a son of a Muslim, was elected as American President in 2008.

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

A Japanese man engaged in activities to help Iraqi children flew to Bahrain from Dubai on board a jet plane with only a few passengers on Feb. 18 at local time.

He just wants to eyewitness the Middle East revolution going on in Bahrain.

On the other hand, a Japanese construction engineer presents pictures of Bahrain as he is stationed there.

The U.S. accounts for 13% in exports from Bahrain and Japan 0.9%.

The U.S. accounts for 6.8% in imports of Bahrain and Japan 10.6%.

According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan, there are officially 230 Japanese in Bahrain.

So, democracy should prevail in Bahrain, if not so pro-European or pro-American.

In addition, tonight a Japanese cable TV channel presented a discussion program in which an Egyptian woman, still young and fluent in Japanese, took part while looking so energized by the successful Egyptian uprising.

According to her, the popular insurgency in her mother country achieved the outstanding victory, since no rains fell during the period of clashes. If it had rained, people would have left the Tahrir square to be occupied by military troops.

Anyway, as Mt. Fuji I saw on January 1 was mostly covered by clouds, unlike the preceding few years, I think there would be a kind of upheavals in some places on the earth this year.

Something new must be really upspringing in the Islamic world, surrounding Jerusalem, now.

(Early this morning a miracle happened around me. Or, should I say that I survived last night while more than 120 people died already in this winter due to heavy snow in Japan.)

Luk 2:18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds.

Luk 2:19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart.

Luk 2:20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

"but thy disciples fast not?" - (News of Japan & Judaists)


CHAPTER I: Good News for Japan

1) The total export/import trade amount of Japan with China reached a record $300 billion in 2010. The share of China among Japan's trade partners accounted for a record 20%.

The total amount of the U.S.-China trade was also around $300 billion in 2010.

2) The U.S. economy looks like entering an upward trend, though its 9%-level unemployment still continues.

CHAPTER II: Bad News for Japan

1) China is estimated to have 200 stealth jet fighters in 15 years.

2) The Florida State, USA, has cancelled its plan to introduce a high-speed train system.

CHAPTER III: Jewish Wife of FM of Empire of Japan

A foreign minister of the Empire of Japan had a German wife who was a Judaist.

Shigenori Togo (10 December 1882 - 23 July 1950) was Minister of Foreign Affairs for the Empire of Japan at both the start and the end of the Japanese-American conflict during World War II. He also served as Minister of Colonial Affairs in 1941, and assumed the same position, renamed the Minister for Greater East Asia, in 1945.

Togo married a widow of a German architect in Tokyo in 1922. It is said that she happened to be a Judaist.

Even today, only a few, or several at most, native Japanese are believed to have ever converted to Judaism without a need arising from their marriage with a Judaist.

In addition, I suppose no Americans know that the Foreign Minister of the Empire of Japan at the time of the Pearl Harbor Attack had Jewish-German wife.

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

Mar 2:18 And the disciples of John and of the Pharisees used to fast: and they come and say unto him, Why do the disciples of John and of the Pharisees fast, but thy disciples fast not?

Mar 2:19 And Jesus said unto them, Can the children of the bridechamber fast, while the bridegroom is with them? as long as they have the bridegroom with them, they cannot fast.

"which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet" - (GCC & The Codex Tchacos)

The Tokyo Sky Tree Tower in an old downtown
Growing to 634 meters (2100 feet) by its completion

CHAPTER I: Direct Investment into GCC

Direct investment into the member states to the Cooperation Council for the Arab States of the Gulf has drastically increased since 2003, since GCC is comprised of Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates.

This is a direct result from the War in Iraq. The symbol of this financial boom in the Persian Gulf is, of course, the bubble in Dubai.

While only about $2 billion was invested into the Persian-Gulf Arab states in 2001, about $62 billion flowed into those countries in 2008. It must cause a big change there, in addition to the Dubai bubble which has been in a bursting phase for some time.

Uprising in Qatar and so on might be another natural result.

Yet, here a true issue is Islam and money.

From the beginning Islam was established on wealth of Arab merchants living around Mecca that became a center of intermediate trade between Europe and Asia in the sixth to the seventh centuries. At the time, European access to the conventional trade route called the Silk Road was blocked due to the conflict between the East Roman Empire and a Persian empire. Accordingly, merchants had to take a detour going down along the Red Sea to reach the Indian Ocean and further to South and East Asia. So, Arabian merchants got rich around Mecca; then Islam emerged.

Now, with so much investment into the Persian-Gulf Arab states, something could happen in addition to the bubble in Dubai. Compared with the era of the 9/11 Terror in 2001, 30 times more money is now available in the Islamic GCC states. In deed, something could happen in addition to the bubble in Dubai; and it can be more social, political, religious, and spiritual.

Yet, with this wave of prevailing democracy in Islamic states in North Africa and the Persian Gulf regions, the threat of terror that has haunted the U.S. would be reduced. It is basically a good sign even for the U.S. It can be a challenge more to Iran.

Without existence of powerful Persians in the sixth and seventh centuries, Islam was impossible. Islam owes Persians. So, when the situation has come to move Iran, it can be totally a big change in the Middle East. However, this change is necessary for Islam to compete with European Christianity. If this situations eventually comes to change the balance between European Christians and Muslims, it is truly a historical event.

It would also influence the status of Muslims in the U.S.

CHAPTER II: The Codex Tchacos

In 1978, an old Christian document was discovered in Egypt. It was later called the Codex Tchacos. It specifically includes the Gospel of Judas which is believed to have been written between AD 220 and 340.

The Gospel of Judas is a Gnostic gospel that purportedly documents conversations between the Apostle Judas Iscariot and Jesus Christ. It is believed to have been written by Gnostic followers of Jesus, rather than by Judas himself, and probably dates from no earlier than the 2nd century since it contains late 2nd century theology. In 180 A.D. however, Irenaeus, an influential Catholic priest, wrote a document in which he railed against this gospel. Therefore, the book was already in circulation by then.

But, it was in 2002 that recovery of the half-decayed document was started for actual reading.

It was in 2006 that the recovery work was finished to read 85% of the document.

However, the Gospel of Judas has not yet given a decisive impact on Christians in the world, including the Pope, though the Gospel sheds new light on what Judas was.

First of all, betrayers are everywhere in the world today and in the past.

Second, a true saint of any religion is afflicted by betrayers without exception.

But, who can betray God?

What is the meaning of betraying God?

The conventional interpretation of the Bible might be very biased. Yet, it is a fact that even with such insufficient understanding, mankind has been able to survive for 2000 years. But, it might be time to correctly interpret the Bible in order to survive for another 2000 years.

And, if a Christian knows that somebody is Christ Jesus, today he or she will never betray Him. But, if he or she cannot see that He is Christ Jesus, he or she might still betray Him.

If you can see Christ Jesus in a very poor man, you will never betray the person. But, if you cannot see Christ Jesus in the very poor man, you might betray the person.

Anyway, we are requested to think about the document and its contents by history.


Gospel of Judas - Why Isn't It Accurate? 
The Gospel of Judas is considered "Gnostic" in origin. Generally, Gnostics hold that salvation of the soul comes from a quasi-intuitive knowledge of the mysteries of the universe and of secret formulae indicative of that knowledge. The gospel according to Judas is simply a heretical forgery like the Gospel of MaryGospel of Thomas, and the Gospel of Philip.  
We now have over 25,000 ancient texts and fragments confirming the legitimate biblical accounts. Maybe there’s a reason we’ve only found one copy of the Gospel of Judas laying in an ancient trash heap in the back of a solitary cave. Just as Judas betrayed Jesus Christ, this gospel has betrayed the truth of God.


The unedited full-text of the 1906 Jewish Encyclopedia 
In all likelihood, Judas, being of the district of Judah, while the rest were all Galileans, was not impressed with the Messianic character claimed by Jesus, and therefore, merely to obtain immunity for himself, committed the cowardly act of betraying him to the soldiers and officers of the priests that came with swords and staves to seize him and his followers. He singled out Jesus by kissing him while greeting him as rabbi (John xviii. 1 et seq.); they then seized Jesus and brought him bound to Annas and Caiaphas the high priest (Matt. xxvi. 47 et seq., and par. pas.), while his disciples, including Peter, left their master to his destiny... 
 In the Arabic Apocryphon, "Evangelium Infantiæ Salvatoris," ch. xxxv., Judas is represented as having been possessed by Satan at the birth of Jesus; and when the infant Jesus was taken near him to afford him relief from an ailment, Jesus beat him instead. In the Middle Ages Judas was frequently made a subject of popular myths and represented as the type of wickedness.

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

Mat 2:17 Then was fulfilled that which was spoken by Jeremy the prophet, saying,

Mat 2:18 In Rama was there a voice heard, lamentation, and weeping, and great mourning, Rachel weeping for her children, and would not be comforted, because they are not.

Mat 2:19 But when Herod was dead, behold, an angel of the Lord appeareth in a dream to Joseph in Egypt,

Mat 2:20 Saying, Arise, and take the young child and his mother, and go into the land of Israel: for they are dead which sought the young child's life.

"that are whole have no need of the physician" - (Truth about Japan/China & Two Holy Discoveries)

The Tokyo Sky Tree Tower Now 580 meters high
To be the second tallest structure in the world soon,,,(Click to enlarge.)

Money, Religion, and Nations

In China, since the First Emperor unified the Han Chinese world in 246 BC, they suffered all-out rule by different ethnic groups at least twice: the Yuan Dynasty (1260-1358) and the Qing or Ching Dynasty (1644-1911).

It is as if Italy, France, and Germany had been under Egyptian rule twice since the era of Alexander the Great. In that case, national characters of these major European countries should have been warped and distorted beyond imagination.

The Han Chinese enjoyed cultural superiority over foreign rulers, Mongolians (Yuan) and Manchu (Qing) who eventually adopted the Chinese way of administration and economy during their reign. But, every evil generated from occupation by foreigners prevailed among the Han Chinese, though they today have almost absorbed Manchus.

The big failure of the Empire of Japan in the first half of the 20th century is that Japanese elites at the time ventured into direct control and occupation of whole China (as it looked possible due to superior military and economic power of the Empire), though the Empire was so challenged and drawn by Chinese elites who had been in a helpless mess and great confusion in the aftermath of the fall of Manchu's Qing Dynasty which had been triggered by the victory of the Empire of Japan in the Japanese-Sino War (1894-1895).

On the other hand, the Japanese Archipelago has never been occupied by foreign forces except for several years after WWII. The Japanese people (also called the Yamato race) are so different from Chinese (mainly the Han people) like West Europeans are so different from Egyptians. This is a piece of commonsense among the Japanese people which is often reminded of when thinking about China and Chinese at large.

CHAPTER I: China Still Wants Financial Aid from Japan

In 1980's and 1990's when China's GDP was 10 to 20% of today's amount, it received total more than $30 billion aid in the form yen-denominated government credits from Japan. China was also granted another $30 billion loan from Japan through the Japan Bank for International Cooperation (at a very low interest rate and a very long redemption period).

In those years, money from Japan accounted for 10% or so China's national budget for public work, in my humble calculation.

Even in 2009, the Japanese Government provided $50 million ODA for China who never made it public to the Chinese people!

The Chinese Communist Government has made no efforts to let its people know this long history of the Japanese financial and technological aid. Beijing does not want Chinese citizens to become friendly toward the Japanese people, since they will find that they have been told unthinkable lies by their Government for so long after WWII. Yet, some Americans have at least come to take note of this weird relationship.

More specifically, according to official data and records in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Japan:
Overview of Official Development Assistance (ODA) to China

[$1 = 100 yen or so]

The problem is that the Chinese Communist Government has been trying to consolidate its authority as a big enemy to the Empire of Japan of the Second World War era. The Chinese Communist Government has appealed to the Chinese people as a trustworthy leader who is tough against the Japanese militarism now extinct. So, it educates the Chinese people to fight against and hate Japan, while Chinese elites are mostly behaving so friendly to Japanese politicians, bureaucrats, business leaders, and other leading figures of the Japanese society.

The Chinese Government educates its people to hate Japan by telling distorted facts, half-lies, and exaggerated lies about the Japanese-China War having been fought for years before 1945. This is a kind of hate crimes by a state.

But, it simply tells an alarming truth that the Chinese Communist Party will lose support from the Chinese people if the Party fails in keeping a certain level of hatred among Chinese for Japan.

So, they do not tell its people and the world that China's economic success owes Japan; probably 40% of its GDP is actually what has been transfered from Japan; and China of today infringes Japanese patent rights and copy rights in an amount of $100 billion every year.

Yet, as China is situated so close to Japan and it has 1.3 billion population, Japan has to help China and work on China to become a friendly country in future, so patiently.

CHAPTER II: Nag Hammadi Library in 1945 & Dead Sea Scrolls in 1946

The post-WWII period started with the two discoveries of old documents created in the early Christian period: the Nag Hammadi Library found in Egypt in 1945 and the Dead Sea Scrolls found near the Dead Sea in 1946.

In fact, after WWII, Judaists returned to Palestine and Jerusalem to build the nation Israel.

In fact. after WWII, Egypt made war and then peace with Israel, which set the decisive underlying framework for the relationship between Israel and surrounding Islamic states.

In my estimation, Christianity would return to the state in the era between 150 BCE and 70 CE, since the Dead Sea Scrolls were prepared in those years.

In my estimation, the religion of Muslims would return to the state of religions of their ancestors in the era of the 3rd and 4th centuries, since the Nag Hammadi Library was prepared in those years.

Put simply, Christians would become more like Israelites of the era of Jesus Christ. Muslims would become more like early Christians of the era of the falling Roman Empire.

Christians will mention God more and more but Christ Jesus less and less.

Muslims will mention Allah more and more but Islamic saints less and less.

In the U.S., this process is clearly going on.

All the Americans respect the American Dream. All the American Christians respect the American Dream. All the American Judaists respect the American Dream. All the Muslims in America respect the American Dream.

And, all the Christians in the world might come to be like American Christians. All the Muslims in the world might come to be like Muslims in America.

This is what the discoveries of the two miracle holy documents suggest.

Yet, the American Dream should be replaced by the true God.

In other world, the time has come for mankind to choose God or American Dream (money).

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

Why did the second or third century documents have to be discovered in Egypt in 1945, 1800 years after they were hidden in the ground?

It is because we need to read the following passages.


The Nag Hammadi Library

The Gospel of Thomas

Translated by Stephen Patterson and Marvin Meyer


17. Jesus said, "I will give you what no eye has seen, what no ear has heard, what no hand has touched, what has not arisen in the human heart."

18. The disciples said to Jesus, "Tell us, how will our end come?"

Jesus said, "Have you found the beginning, then, that you are looking for the end? You see, the end will be where the beginning is.

Congratulations to the one who stands at the beginning: that one will know the end and will not taste death."


No one has ever be born as a result from his or her own efforts to get life from the God Almighty through any negotiations.

One's birth and death belong to the God Almighty. But, his or her living belongs to him or her.

At the beginning one exists for the God Almighty. But as freedom is given, people leave the God. Yet, based on this freedom, one can choose not to leave the God Almighty while exercising his or her freedom in living life but not leaving the God.

Finally, it might be regarded as being sick for a soul to leave the God. It might be so in Heaven.

Mar 2:16 And when the scribes and Pharisees saw him eat with publicans and sinners, they said unto his disciples, How is it that he eateth and drinketh with publicans and sinners?

Mar 2:17 When Jesus heard it, he saith unto them, They that are whole have no need of the physician, but they that are sick: I came not to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

"Let us now go even unto Bethlehem" - (Islam owes Persians; China owes Japan)

Around Tokyo with
Yesterday's snow

Secret of Islam, Japan, and Coptic Egypt

It is said that first stars in this universe were formed 200 million or 300 million years after the Big Bang.

We live now 13.7 billion years after the Big Bang. So, the ratio of the years is about 55.

Indeed, once in Japan it was said that life is just 50 years long. Roughly speaking, it is worth referring to astronomy sometimes. Yet, Christ Jesus reportedly died in His middle 30's and the founder of Islam at 63. So, Islam might be more humane or natural for some people.

Anyway, there is no such a thing in this universe as 1 trillion years, at least yet, to our disappointment of some sort.

Now, what does not exist in this universe? Your love to poor people?

CHAPTER I: When Islam Emerged

Before Islam rose in the 7th century, Persians blocked the conventional trade route or the Silk Road linking the Mediterranean regions to India and East Asia.

Accordingly, a detour was taken by merchants who traveled between the West and the East. So, Mecca situated on the Red Sea became a center of the intermediary trade to thrive. Many Arab merchants and their tribes living around the city came to be rich and prosperous. However, the then prevailing religions, Judaism and Christianity, did not fit in with their pride supported by newly acquired wealth. Arabs needed their own tribal saint or prophet who could be authorized by God, since they became so rich as Persians and successors of the Romans and ancient Greeks.

So, without Sessanian Persia and the East Roman Empire, Islam should not have emerged.

And, to our surprise, Islam penetrated into, and prevailed in, most of regions under the reign of Sessanian Persia and the East Roman Empire eventually.

Yet, in its heyday, Muslim legions could not occupy Rome to succeed the Roman Empire. The Islam Empire could however superseded the glory of Alexander the Great.

From a historical point of view, it is a manifestation of the will of the God and Allah that the West and the Middle East must be separated. Europeans should not govern the Arab and the Persian worlds as well as India and East Asia; Arabs and Persians in addition to Hindus, Chinese, and Mongolians should not govern Europe. The parallel establishment of Christianity and Islam has implied this will of the God and Allah. Taking further into consideration Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, and Shintoism, religions have this function to separate peoples according to geographical and climate conditions. As a natural conclusion, Europeans should not have been allowed to colonize the Islamic regions, India, and East Asia, though they violated this rule set by the God and Allah. Inevitably, after WWII, European powers lost all of their colonies in Asia, directly due to the rise of the Empire of Japan in the early 20th century.

The significance of Japan lies in this historical context, since the God and Allah assigned this great role to Japanese.

CHAPTER II: China Teaches Lies in Schools

Some Chinese Japanese, who of course love Japan more than any other countries in this world, wrote that the Chinese Communist Government teaches children in China something so stupid.

Teachers in China tell pupils that Japan got rich because Japanese stole wealth, gold, money, and treasure from China for so many years in the 20th century till the end of WWII. They teach that Japanese success is based on wealth and riches stolen from China.

But, as I once discussed, truth is that today's Chinese success owes to 30-year long Japanese economic and technological aid to China, while even today China violates and infringes $100 billion-worth Japanese patent rights and copy-rights every year. I rather suppose that 40% of China's GDP is what has been transfered from Japan in these years for some complicated reasons.

Anyway, when Japan opened the nation in latte 1800's after 250 year-long national isolation under saumurai regime (though trade was carried out with China and the Netherlands), Japan had a great amount of gold and silver.

To explain it (how much Japan had gold before its modernization or in the samurai era), I would here take up an article I wrote on October 29, 2010:

SECTION I: Give Me $1; Give You $1.6

If somebody calls you, saying, "Give me first one dollar, and then I will give you 1.6 dollars," you will laugh and hang up the phone.

But, in 1736, samurai king of Japan Tokugawa Yoshimune proclaimed so with 150 tons of gold prepared in his Edo (Tokyo) castle or any necessary amount for exchange with circulated gold coins.

In the early 18th century, Edo with one million residents was the largest city in the world. However, those who lived in villages and farming areas accounted for 90% of the then 30 million population of Japan. Farmers were obliged to deliver rice to samurai lords as tax, since rice farming had been the main industry in Japan for 2000 years. After receiving rice bales, samurai lords including a shogun sold them at big market in Edo or Osaka for money.

Yoshimune happened to be the eighth shogun or samurai king from the Tokugawa clan, since he was a relative of his predecessor, though so remote. So he assumed the shogunate in 1716 to come to Edo from Kisyu (Wakayama Prefecture). Subsequently, he stayed in power as the head of the Tokugawa clan and the top leader of all the samurais in Japan till 1745, six years before his death.

In 1714 before Yoshimune came to Edo, the Tokugawa shogunate issued 8,280,000 gold coins of which unit is "Ryou," though a coin is generically called "Koban." Each coin or one ryou koban weighs 17.85 grams including gold in a ratio of 86.8%. The shogunate used 128.29 tons of gold to provide about 8.3 million coins or ryou.

However, when Yoshimune succeeded the shogunate, he had to cope with a kind of deflation. Prices of goods and especially rice were declining, while the Tokugawa government collected rice as tax from framers. It meant a revenue fall for the shogunate.

Shogun Yoshimune decided to increase an amount of circulated coins. So, in 1736, he ordered to lower purity of gold to 65.7%. He also lessened the weight of the gold coin to 13.125 grams. Then Ysohimune proclaimed that anybody that gave back 1 ryo koban to the shogunate would receive 1.6 ryo kobans, since the shogunate monopolized mintage.

In this scheme of 1736, new gold coins were issued in a quantity of 17,435,711, each with a weight of 13.125 grams at a gold purity of 65.7%. The shogunate used 150.35 tons of gold, including retrieved old gold coins, to provide about 17.4 million coins or ryou.


Yoshimune's monetary policy succeeded. Prices of goods and especially rice got stabilized, while the Tokugawa government collected rice as tax from framers.

Before modernization of Japan in the late 19th century and during the samurai era, there was no central bank in Japan. But, the samurai government issued coins. This Yoshimune's measures is however regarded as provision of government notes of today.

No matter how difficult it was to finance the shogun government budget with sales of rice in the market, the Tokugawa shogunate continued for further 130 years.

Following suit, the Japanese Government of today can issue government notes worth 50 trillion yen or $625 billion.

So, when the samurai regime fell and modern Japan started to open the door to the world, it had gold and silver enough to trade with European nations and the U.S.

For example, in the Japanese-Russo War in 1904, the Empire of Japan used some warships it had purchased from the U.K. to operate them in its fleets. However, after the victory against the Russian Empire, the Empire of Japan started to build all the naval ships by itself using crude oil and iron imported from, say, the U.S.

China, namely at the time the Ching Dynasty of Manchuria origin, could not effectively use its gold and silver to turn it to industrial wealth. Their gold and silver were simply wasted but not stolen by the Empire of Japan.

CHAPTER III: Jesus in Egypt Again

From the beginning, why did Christ Jesus have to leave in history a legend that He traveled to Egypt with His parents when He was a baby?

Is it for the 2011 Egyptian upheaval or the Gaza hardship to be focused on by the so-called Christians in the world?

The path the Holy Family treaded must be the same one as Abraham, Moses, Alexander the Great, and Caesar had. But, why Egypt?

Nag Hammadi library
The Nag Hammadi library [1] is a collection of early Christian Gnostic texts discovered near the Upper Egyptian town of Nag Hammadi in 1945.
The contents of the codices were written in Coptic language, though the works were probably all translations from Greek[4]. The best-known of these works is probably the Gospel of Thomas, of which the Nag Hammadi codices contain the only complete text...

The Sophia of Jesus Christ

Translated by Douglas M. Parrott

Matthew said to him: "Lord, no one can find the truth except through you. Therefore teach us the truth."
The Savior said: "He Who Is is ineffable. No principle knew him, no authority, no subjection, nor any creature from the foundation of the world until now, except he alone, and anyone to whom he wants to make revelation through him who is from First Light. From now on, I am the Great Savior. For he is immortal and eternal. Now he is eternal, having no birth; for everyone who has birth will perish. He is unbegotten, having no beginning; for everyone who has a beginning has an end. Since no one rules over him, he has no name; for whoever has a name is the creation of another."

A year ago or so, the Japanese Sumo Association fired a Russian sumo wrestler for his possession of a drug.

Now, the Association is forced to cancel its planned grand sumo tournament due to exposure of fixed matches by some sumo wrestlers who are associated with gangsters called Bouryoku-dan.

As the Sumo Association is under the supervision of the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology, it has become a big problem in the society.

So, there are many problems in Japan even among those who are close to nationalists or traditional and closed communities. I think they have to be humble, understanding their position in the society.

Yet, a Japanese can be sometimes threatening even to ordinary Japanese if he is closely associated with nationalists or traditional and closed communities of Japan.

Luk 2:14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.

Luk 2:15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Bethlehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us.

"and the changers of money sitting" - (Russia & Global Cooling)

The Tokyo Chuo (central)-Line &
A Long Distance Line

Russia & Global Cooling

Today, it is snowing again in Tokyo.

A volcano has erupted in Kyusyu, the southern major island of Japan proper.

And, food poisoning in elementary schools in Hokkaido, the northern major island of Japan proper, has put 800 pupils in affliction.

And, the approval rating for the Kan Cabinet has drooped to 20% or so.

The only bright news in Japan today is:
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 13 (AP) - (Kyodo)—(EDS: WILL BE LED)
Takahiro Matsumoto, guitarist in the popular Japanese hard rock duo B'z, on Sunday won the Best Pop Instrumental Album award at the Grammys for "Take Your Pick."

CHAPTER I: Illegal Soviet Invasion of the Kuril Islands

On August 15, 1945, the Empire of Japan surrendered to the Allied led by the U.S.

On the day, acts of war were ended. The Imperial Army and Navy stopped military operations in Manchuria, China, Indochina, the Pacific Ocean regions, and around the OKinawa/Ryukyu Islands. The U.S. also ceased fire.

But, the Soviet Union continued its attacks on the Empire of Japan. They launched offensive and armed invasion of the Kurile Islands (actually firing at Imperial soldiers stationed in the Islands hoisting the white flag), though the Empire of Japan accepted a condition of the surrender that it would abandon its territorial jurisdiction on the Kurile Islands (eventually except the southern part of the Islands which historically and geographically belong to Japan).

Shumshu (Russian: Шумшу, 'Shumushu Japanese: 占守島 Shumushu-tō), is the northernmost island of Kuril Islands chain in the Sea of Okhotsk in the northwest Pacific Ocean.

During the Invasion of the Kuril Islands, Soviet landed on Shumshu on August 18, 1945, and combat operations continued through August 23, ending with the surrender of the surviving members of the Japanese garrison. The Battle of Shumshu was one of the last battles of the war. The Soviets forcibly deported the remaining Japanese civilian inhabitants and sent the prisoners of war, including most male civilians to labor camps. Kataoka was renamed Bakovo (Russian: Байково), and the island annexed by the Soviet Union in 1946. Japan formally gave up sovereignty over the island under the terms of the San Francisco Peace Treaty of 1951.

In the battle of Shumshu, the number of the dead and wounded was 1,018 on the Imperial troops and 1,567 on the Soviet troops.

Yet, this battle was unnecessary one, since the Empire of Japan surrendered to the Allied led by the U.S. three days prior to the start of this invasion by the USSR. Though as a condition for ending WWII the Allied nations and the Empire of Japan agreed that no country would be allowed to expand its territory from boarders having been set before the start of WWII, the Soviet Union tried to expand its territory by occupying the Kurile Islands illegally.

Besides, as the USSR did not sign the San Francisco Peace Treaty of 1951, it has no right at all on the Kurile Island in addition to the southern half of Sakhalin.

As I once discussed it, though Japan gave up the Kurile Islands at the end of WWII, it did not agree to occupation of the Kurile Islands by the Soviet Union. It was up to negotiations mainly between Japan, the Soviet, and the U.S. But as the Cold War started, the USSR did not join the Treaty of 1951, so that America's decision that the South Kuril should not belong to the USSR prevails, for the Soviet and the Russian Empire had never established its dominion there since the first diplomatic treaty between the Empire of Japan and the Russian Empire in 1855. (In the Treaty of 1875 between the two Empires, the Empire of Japan legally obtained the whole Kurile Islands.)

So long as Russia continues to occupy the Souther Kurile Islands and the souther half of Sakhalin, it cannot be trusted, respected, and international-treaty-abiding.

CHAPTER II: Global Cooling

People, mostly European rich people, have argued too much about the global warming and the CO2 emission trade without enough fear of God.

They have not considered how wrong and sinful their rich material life is. No rich persons in Europe become materially and financially poor to save the world from the global warming. Instead, they have tried to be rather richer through the CO2 emission trade. When they get more money through the CO2 trade, they intend to force Japan and developing countries to use less energy while allowing China and the U.S. to continue to use a huge amount of coal and crude oil.

To combat global warming, Europe has to first start to become materially poor. Without this sincere attitude, the CO2 trade cannot be trusted. They have to review, reflect on, and regret their material civilization based on use of a huge amount of energy, which inevitably leads to rise of temperature.

Yet, there seems to be factors more decisive and powerful in global warming/cooling on the earth and in the space: the ocean currents and the sun.

UAH Update for January 2011: Global Temperatures in Freefall
February 2nd, 2011 by Roy W. Spencer, Ph. D.

January 2011 experienced a precipitous drop in lower tropospheric temperatures over the tropics, Northern Hemisphere, and Southern Hemisphere. This was not unexpected, since global average sea surface temperatures have been falling for many months, with a head start as is usually the case with La Nina.

UK Summer and Winter Weather Forecast 2011-12

This extended period of low solar activity has now gone on for far too long, to be anywhere near normal.

I can also not stress the importance of the gulf stream shift enough than I already have, in terms of the amount of heat that it transfers to the UK. So let's now take a look at some comparable real time satellite data below, in relation to the horizontal current in 2009 and 2010. See Fig.4

IG.4 NOAA, (2009 & 2010)

Now let's take a look at at the horizontal current data below dated: 30th Jan 2011. See Fig.5

FIG.5 NOAA, (2011)

This has also now gone on for far too long, to be anywhere near normal.

Summer 2011

Based on the factors I have covered, it would be adequate to suggest below average temperatures in terms of how I calculate solar activity into my forecasts. The UK will also begin to see the lag effect of the gulf stream shift to couple this. However, I also feel that the La Niña will largely influence the UK summer, in terms of how it will affect the jet stream.

CHAPTER III: Russian Possible Canals to Stop Cooling

There have been some arguments about the water issue in Russia, such as the Aral Sea. Some of them are even related to the global cooling, since rivers flowing into the Arctic Sea, along with melting ice of the Greenland, contribute to prevention of the Gulf Stream flowing into the north from the Gulf of Mexico, thus causing less heat to Europe.

Refill the Aral Sea
Posted on 27 September 2004.
RELEASE THE RIVERS: Let the Volga & Ob Refill the Aral Sea



-Gulf Stream ok-

An even bigger environmental reason for building these canals applies to the Ob-Irtysh, which flows into the Arctic Ocean. Many climatologists and hydrologists are concerned about the impact of fresh water flowing into the Arctic. Their models suggest that too much fresh water might have an effect on the Gulf Stream, causing it to no longer wind its way northwards hugging Europe’s western shores, from Spain to Murmansk. Weather in Europe, if no longer warmed by the Gulf Stream’s tropical ocean current, would revert to an ice age. Not a pleasant thought, if you’re sitting outdoors to tea in London. Melting glacial ice and icepack in recent years have allowed unprecedented levels of fresh water to accumulate in the Arctic. Diverting as many as 40 cubic kilometers of fresh water away from the Arctic delta of the Ob-Irtysh would significantly reduce the levels of fresh water in the Arctic, helping preserve the northward flowing Gulf Stream, preventing an imminent ice age

It is said that making 1000 liters or 1 ton of fresh water from seawater costs $1.

With development and wider use of this technology, it will save the world.

Especially in China, among 669 big cities, insufficient water supply is reported in more than 400 cities and a significant lack of water is reported in 110 cities.

So, China is actively introducing desalination plants like in Arab nations. But, water shortage can be a very big factor for future uprising of people in China.

China has to start to face and address problems its rapid industrialization has brought about on its soil.

Joh 2:13 And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem.

Joh 2:14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting:

Joh 2:15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the changers' money, and overthrew the tables;

From/To the Tokyo Station (the bottom side of the picture)(Photo taken by EEE Reporter; click to enlarge.)

Today, in Tokyo, I saw a homeless woman.

It was of course cold outside in Tokyo as it snowed on Friday and Saturday.

Around her sitting on a pathway, a few pegions were walking about while being fed by her.

And, she was the only homeless person I could so identify today in Tokyo Prefecture where more than 13 million people live.

The issue is whether the success of Europeans was brought about by the success of Christianity or the success of Christianity was brought about by the success of Europeans.

Then will future success of Muslims be brought about by future success of advanced Islam?

I think future success of Muslims will be brought about by future success of advanced Islam.

And, the future success of Muslims will have a significant influence on Christianity. For example, the Vatican might be replaced by the new Vatican.

Of course, the head of the new Vatican must be a homeless man like Christ Jesus.
