"Take no thought for your life" - (Latest History)

Around Tokyo Bay...

The Latest History (la dernière histoire)

In a history textbook to be written in the 22nd century, this era would be most probably described as a crazy era since we apply nuclear fission to electricity generation.

Indeed, the transition from the 20th century to the 21st century is characterized by ever increasing division between the rich and the poor in terms of material success and spiritual devotion.

SECTION I: Modern History before IT Revolution (till 1990's)

The Vietnam War was finally ended in 1975 as Saigon fell into the hand of North Vietnam while the U.S. troops had already left South Vietnam.

It is well known that the Vietnam War caused a grave social and cultural change in the U.S. It was symbolized by the Nixon scandal called the Watergate conspiracy, while drugs came to be widely used among young Americans.

The Vietnam War was not a simple war between the free world and the communist world. It was rather situated in a long effort for the Vietnamese to get rid of foreign rule. In this context, the Vietnam War could be regarded as the last large-scale war for independence of Asian people from Western power.

Accordingly, the Soviet Union that had supported North Vietnam in the War could not prevail in Southeast Asia after the end of the Vietnam War. China was still struggling in domestic problems, though it started to get at feud with Vietnam while supporting mass-murderer Pol Pot.

Japan, on the other hand, leveraging the special procurement boom due to the Vietnam War and increasing export to the U.S., became the second largest economy in the world. Its industrial power was exceeding the Soviet Union's. The Soviet Union lost a chance to dominate in East Asia forever.

Then on the Christmas Eve of 1979, the Soviet Union started to send its troops to Afghanistan. Subsequently, in September of 1980, Iraqi troops suddenly started to attack Iran. The two wars set the course of the world conflict for the next 30 years.

In 1980, John Lennon was shot to death. In 1981, Diana Spencer married a member of the British Royal Family to be Princess Diana. In 1981, Egyptian President Muhammad Anwar al-Sadat was assassinated. And, it was the first year for the Space Shuttle project with Columbia launched for the first time. With this interplay of light and shadow, the 1980's started for the world to see the great expansion of the Japanese economy and the possibility of the nuclear warfare between the U.S. and the Soviet Union being fading away.

In 1988, the Iran-Iraq War was over. In 1989, the Soviet troops started to withdraw from Afghanistan. The world looked like getting settled in boring peace time. It must have looked so to Mr. George H.W. Bush, Saddam Hussein, and Osama bin Laden. The world was going to develop peacefully and economically. The Soviet Union lost evil aggressive power. The Islamic world was going back to equilibrium of power around Israel and Saudi Arabia. The start of the year 1990 posed no threats to the U.S. at all, except ever growing power of the Japanese yen.

It might have been the most peaceful and promising time for the world aligned around the U.S.: the start of 1990.

SECTION II: Modern History on IT Revolution (in 1990's)

The amount of money generated in the New York stock market grew four times more between 1990 and 2000 while total energy consumption in the U.S. expanded just 1.2 times or so in this period.

What has made the rapid increase of money circulated in the market is development of computer and telecommunications technology or information technology (IT).

Though the Vietnam War was said that it was the first major war where computers were exhaustively used in the US Department of Defense, the level of computing power in this decade grew beyond comparison with that of the Vietnam War era.

The Soviet Union could not compete with the high-tech-based American military power any more, since this American high-tech military power was well exhibited in the Persian Gulf War (August 2, 1990 – February 28, 1991). Subsequently, the Soviet Union was dissolved amid a kind of confusion and debacles among its constituent republics.

Indeed, the Soviet Union was an enemy of America when the Dow Jones Index was less than 3,000 dollars. The U.S. lost an old enemy to encounter another rival Japan. Then, a covert money war against Japan became a major issue for Washington DC. But, Japan was already engaged in globalization of economy. The Japanese industry could not neglect cheap labor costs in China while facing a large-scale competition in ever eased and expanded market. Moreover, the Japanese land could not accommodate more industrial development due to its limited size. So, Japan started to transfer technology and capital to China (today 20,000 Japanese businesses have branch offices, subsidiary companies or plants in China). Yet, the U.S. suppressed possible dominance of Japanese businesses in the IT sector and the financial sector. Under this condition, the Japanese economy entered a long deflation period, which is a rare phenomenon in the history of economy.

In 1990's, China was enjoying great investment from Japan in terms of quality and quantity. The U.S. was leveraging its superiority in the IT sector to apply the new computer/Internet technology to its financial sector. It was rather strange that Microsoft and Intel were not Japanese companies. But, it was intentionally promoted that American businesses held a dominant position. For this purpose, even some political and diplomatic influences were executed by the U.S. Government on Japan.

So, China was busy absorbing Japanese technology, pursing, so to speak, the Chinese Dream; America was busy pursing the renewed American Dream and increasing wealth in the financial market by applying its IT technology while keeping upper hand over Japan. But, some parties on the earth were pursuing a very different dream: justice of their own version of Islam.

"No man can serve two masters" - (Nuclear Power Plants)

Tokyo Bay

Tokyo Bay, and

Toward Tokyo Bay

Nuclear Power Plants (Nucléaire des centrales électriques)

The Japanese Government has decided to pay $525 (42,000 yen) for each member of the Self-Defense Forces (Japanese military) for his or her work per day in the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant site since March 11.

The number of officers and soldiers eligible to receive this allowance is about 500.

Yet, other soldiers having been engaged in searching for bodies of tsunami victims can receive a special allowance of $25 (2000 yen) per day each.

Yet, after three months from the 3/11 Disaster, the number of evacuees and refugees living in shelters is still more than 80,000 in the tohoku region, hundreds kilometers northeast of Tokyo. The shock and impact of the 3/11 Tsunami and the Fukushima nuclear accident has still continued under the surface, since 7500 people are still missing in the tsunami affected zones.

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

A Buddhist temple in Iwate Prefecture, one of three prefectures hard hit by the 3/11 Disaster of Japan, is going to be registered as a world heritage by UNESCO.

It might be good news for the Japanese. It is because when the temple was built with affluent gold, a big tsunami occurred in the region, and the same magnitude of tsunami also occurred just three months ago over a 1000-year period of time.

By the way, Christ Jesus said that you must not serve yourself but the God. If you serve yourself, you would really forget the God. To make yourself happy, you would also serve rich people, while neglecting the God. And every pious believer of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam would agree to this teaching. It must be so, since what is important is the God but not religion.

Mat 6:24 No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.

"how great is that darkness" - (Israel, Saudi Arabia, and America)





Israel, Saudi Arabia, and America (Israël, l'Arabie saoudite, et l'Amérique)

China is going to experience a large-scale burst of the bubble economy.

India is pushing global costs of foods and energy.

But, for the time being, the world is still under strong influence of the U.S., Israel, and Saudi Arabia at least in terms of religion, though not so overt nowadays.

SECTION I: Saudi Arabia vs. The United States

It is very strange that while President Mr. Barack Obama could take on Osama bin Laden with minimal costs for scores of special troops, several helicopters, and a few high-ranking American intelligence officers in charge, Former President Mr. George W. Bush could not pursue Osama bin Laden with huge costs, $1 trillion, for hundreds of thousands of soldiers, thousands of armed vehicles, helicopters, jet planes, and Naval ships, and hundreds of high-ranking intelligence officers in charge.

Now, it is apparent that Former President Mr. George W. Bush helped Saudi Arabia under the calling of the War on Terror. Saddam Hussein's Iraq was a great threat to the Saudi Arabia royal family who has been a close friend of the Bush family. But, without a reason, President Mr. George W. Bush could not launch a war against Saddam Hussein's Iraq. Yet, he found a reason since Osama bin Laden attacked New York and Washington DC.

It was a complicated situation, since Osama bin Laden was a member of the bin Laden family of Saudi Arabia. Besides, the Bush family had a strong business tie with the bin Laden family, while the bin Laden family has been tightly associated with the Saudi Arabia royal family.

It was a complicated situation. But, Former President Mr. George W. Bush had to go on to capture Osama bin Laden. The Taliban Government promised the U.S. Government that they would arrest Osama bin Laden and take him to their own Islamic court. But, the Bush Administration did not accept it. And, rough attacks were started on AlQaed in addition to the Taliban, which gave a great chance to Osama bin Laden for his running away from Afghanistan (Tora Bora) to Pakistan. Then everybody was puzzled or mystified since the Bush Administration announced that it would be extremely difficult to take on Osama bin Laden in Pakistan (which is not true as proven by President Mr. Obama two months ago).

Then, as if having tried to play catch-up, Former President Mr. George W. Bush turned attentions of Americans to Saddam Hussein and imaginary weapons of mass destruction Saddam Hussein was supposed to hide. Surprisingly, no strong objections were expressed by the American Media and the American public.

Indeed, Saddam Hussein was not only an enemy of Saudi Arabia but also an enemy of Israel. And, the American Media have been under strong influences of American Judaists who are closely linked to interest of Israel.

Accordingly, Former President Mr. George W. Bush could successfully launch a war against Saddam Hussein's Iraq to eventually take on him through the new pro-American Iraqi Government.

By leveraging Osama bin Lden's 9/11 terror, Former President Mr. George W. Bush could eliminate Saddam Hussein, an outstanding common enemy of Israel and Saudi Arabia without receiving strong objections from American voters. But, after it, both Former President Mr. George W. Bush and the American voters allowed Osama bin Laden to slip back into the obscurity. The mystery about a fate and whereabouts of Osama bin Laden looked like going to stay forever, which however does not.

With just a 55% of possibility of existence of Osama bin Laden in a doubtful compound in Abbottabad, a military city near the capital of Pakistan, President Mr. Obama ordered the operation fatal to Osama bin Laden to be executed immediately after the wedding ceremony for a member of the British Royal Family. And, it was so swiftly executed without leaking to the Pakistani Government and probably to the Saudi Arabian Government and the Bush family.

Though the operation needed some bases in Afghanistan and an aircraft career in the Indian Ocean, the costs for taking Osama bin Laden was surprisingly small. Moreover, it also just took two years since Mr. Barack Obama assumed U.S. presidency. In summary, it was so simple to take on Osama bin Laden if the American President had no intimate connections to the Saudi Arabia royal family and the bin Laden family.

Yet, this lesson teaches the world how deeply Saudi Arabia has an influence in the American politics.

Otherwise, the American troops should have been sent to Saudi Arabia to introduce American democracy into the leading country of the Islamic world, since it is not Taliban but Saudi Arabia that Osama bin Laden was from.

SECTION II: Israel-USA-Saudi

Now the world is boring with Saddam Hussein and Osama bin Laden gone forever.

Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the U.S. have no fatal enemies any more. Peace and prosperity seem to come to be enjoyed by the three leading nations in terms of religion. Judaism, Islam, and Christianity will be pursued in each country without a threat while the three leading nations maintain mutual security and safety. It is the most successful moment of the global religions in these 2000 years. Or conversely, finally, the era of struggles between the three religions is over, since Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the U.S. are enjoying quasi-alliance for mutual interest.

Yet, the new era is going to start where New Judaism, New Christianity, and New Islam do not need leadership of Israel, Saudi Arabia, and the U.S.

Rather, spiritualism in China, India, and Russia might count for a lot. Then, there will be a clear shift of the world stage. The Middle East will lose significance, and Judaists' influence on America will lose significance, too. But, if what should come is the Kingdom of God, the change might not be seen as we have seen influences of major nations. In a kind of a large-scale confusion involving Israel, Saudi Arabia, the U.S., China, India, and Russia, something unseen might clearly indicate the coming of the era of the God.

It is because a man lives his life not for himself but for the God.

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

When Princess Diana was killed by a car accident, somebody might have thought that it was a price for wrong behaviors of the English.

When the 9/11 Terror occurred, somebody might have thought that it was a price for wrong behaviors of Americans.

And, when the 3/11 Disaster happened in Japan, somebody must have thought that it was a warning given by the God.

But, a new era might be coming where the rotten English and arrogant Americans will lose their privileges, but humble Chinese, Indians, and the like will take major part.

Yet, it will take some time for Chinese and Hindus to become less rotten and less arrogant, which is a big question.

Indeed, for rotten and arrogant Japanese, the 3/11 Disaster must have exactly happened.

(You are gonna get religion all night Abbottabad...

Mat 6:23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!

"Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt" - (Religious Superiority)



Tama River

Religious Superiority (Supériorité religieuse)

Believe or not, President Mr. Barack Obama was not 100% sure about Osama bin Laden's existence in a compound in Abbottabad.

He candidly said afterwards in a TV interview that it was just 55%, the possibility that Osama bin Laden was in the compound. And what impressed him seems that the compound was built just five years ago, when Former President Mr. George W. Bush was in his second term.

But, Osama bin Laden was from Saudi Arabia, a nation that could have been another superpower if it had been able to leverage Mecca and crude oil production. It is because a majority of crude oil reserves belong to Islamic nations, while the modern civilization depends on crude oil.

In other world, the potential that Saudi Arabia could be the third superpower (next to the U.S. and the Soviet Union) was consumed by Osama bin Laden. Instead of achieving more influential feats in terms of economy and religion, Saudi Arabia just ended up its potential age by simply sending Osama bin Laden to the world.

It means from a historical point of view that glory of Mecca and crude oil Allah gave to Saudi Arabia has been disappearing. What Muslims in the world need is New Mecca and New Crude Oil, which is New Islam.

SECTION I: Islamic GDP per Capita

The per-capita GDP of the U.S. is $46,859. It is fairly large in comparison with that of Iraq and Afghanistan.

#...Major Country....GDP per Person in US Dollar
(0. Israel...28,206)

1. Saudi Arabia...23,833

2. Libya...14,520

3. Malaysia...14,071

4. Turkey...13,138

5. Lebanon...13,031

6. Iran...11,250

7. Tunisia...7,962

(*. China...5,962)

8. Egypt...5,898

9. Turkmenistan...5,710

10. Jordan...5,314

11. Syria...4,748

12. Indonesia...3,986

13. Iraq...3,479

(*. India...2,762)

14. Pakistan...2,738

15. Uzbekistan...2,629

16. Yemen...2,412

17. Sudan...2,305

18. Nigeria...2,133

19. Bangladesh...1,388

20. Afghanistan...800

#...Minor Country....GDP per Person in US Dollar
1. Qatar...85,867

2. Brunei...50,116

3. Kuwait...39,849

4. UAE...38,830

5. Bahrain...34,605

6. Oman...24,153

Something is wrong in Islam. The religion has failed in honoring Muslims with higher GDP per capita than Christians and Judaists. If not GDP, it must honor Muslims with more peace, democracy, or spiritualism, or otherwise a higher level of science.

SECTION II: From India to Arabic World to Europe

More than 1000 years ago, no Europeans could write "1 + 1 = 2", since they did not know "1" and "2." Even the Vatican could not write "1 + 1 = 2", since they did not know "1" and "2."

Arabic numerals
One may distinguish between the decimal system involved, also known as the Hindu-Arabic numeral system, and the precise glyphs used. The glyphs most commonly used in conjunction with the Latin alphabet since Early Modern times are 0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9.

The numerals arose in India between 400 BC and 400 CE.[1][2] They were transmitted first to West Asia, where they find mention in the 9th century, and eventually to Europe in the 10th century.[1] Since knowledge of the numerals reached Europe through the work of Arab mathematicians and astronomers, the numerals came to be called "Arabic numerals."

If you want to advance science and technology you absolutely need "0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9."

The whole European Civilization in these 1000 years is based on wider or ubiquitous use of "0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9." But, Europeans could not invent the numeric system for themselves. In other world, no superiority of the European Civilization was assured 1000 years ago. It started when they gradually introduced the Arabic numeric system into their cultural domain.

Yet, it is not even Arabic Muslims that invented "0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9." It is Indians. Therefore, you cannot say that Judaism, Christianity, and Islam are essentially superior to any other religions and cultures. It is because it is Hindus that invented "0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9."

Accordingly, all the conventional religions, Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, should evolve into New Judaism, New Christianity, and New Islam, since conventional ones are not absolutely superior as proven with a history of application of "0 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9."

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

According to the latest opinion survey by Jiji Press Co., the approval rating for the Japanese Prime Minister Mr. Naoto Kan is just 21.9% and the disapproval rating 59.6%.

His actions against the 3/11 Tsunami Disaster and the Fukushima Daiichi do not satisfy 72.8% of voters. Those who want Mr. Kan to step down when the situation is somewhat fixed account for 81.7%.

However, PM Mr. Kan has the strong intention to stay in premiership of Japan. Accordingly, this summer is going to be heated in the Japanese politics. But most probably, we will have a new prime minister around the end of August.

Yet, no matter how much disappointing his administrative work is, PM Mr. Kan has opened the door to the post-nuclear energy era in Japan through his controversial political tactics.

Anyway, uranium is poison for the human body. It is crazy from the beginning to generate electricity by burning toxic uranium while generating more poisonous derivatives.

Mar 6:22 And when the daughter of the said Herodias came in, and danced, and pleased Herod and them that sat with him, the king said unto the damsel, Ask of me whatsoever thou wilt, and I will give it thee.

Mar 6:23 And he sware unto her, Whatsoever thou shalt ask of me, I will give it thee, unto the half of my kingdom.

Mar 6:24 And she went forth, and said unto her mother, What shall I ask? And she said, The head of John the Baptist.

Mar 6:25 And she came in straightway with haste unto the king, and asked, saying, I will that thou give me by and by in a charger the head of John the Baptist.

Mar 6:26 And the king was exceeding sorry; yet for his oath's sake, and for their sakes which sat with him, he would not reject her.

"for ye shall be filled" - (The Koran and Crude Oil)


So Dense

Around a Private Rilroad

The Koran and Crude Oil (Le Coran et l'huile brute)

Japan has no Koran and crude oil. But, it has 2000 year continuous and independent history with deep penetration of culture based on Shintoism, Confucianism, and Buddhism. Accordingly it is no wonder that Japan has the world fastest supercomputer.

Japanese supercomputer 'K' is world's fastest

A new Japanese supercomputer called "K" is being hailed as the world's fastest - three times more powerful than the previous holder of the title.

SECTION I: Crude Oil Producers

Around 2010, the largest oil producing countries are Saudi Arabia, Russia, and the U.S.

Everybody knows that the U.S. and the Soviet Union were the two superpowers till 1990's. Today, Russia has still a large capacity of producing crude oil.

Yet, what is specific is the presence of Saudi Arabia as one of the three superpowers in terms of crude oil production. It might imply that this sub-era is dominated by Saudi Arabia or its representing Islam. At least, as long as crude oil is a major energy source for mankind, the weight of Saudi Arabia or its representing Islam cannot be lessened.

In other word, we have to realize that we are living in a sub-era symbolized by Saudi Arabia or its representing Islam, though Osama bin Laden was taken on by the U.S. Conversely, Muslims are now given a big chance to grow and advance to New Islam.

SECTION II: Who Buy Oil from Saudi Arabia

It is Japan and other Asian countries that import the most crude oil from Saudi Arabia.

Saudi Arabia should stop trying to serve European and American Christians with its abundant crude oil. Saudi Arabia should help Asian and African countries more and more with its abundant crude oil. It is quite right from a view point of religion.


Indeed, Saudi Arabia had a chance to become the third superpower next to the U.S. and the Soviet Union (Russia) if the Mecca-honored Islamic nation could have leveraged its crude oil more strategically. But, in fact, the country came to be dependent on Western oil companies while purchasing advanced weapons from the U.S., the U.K. and so on. Yet, it needed help from America to get rid of a threat from Saddam Hussein's Iraq.

Osama bin Laden was wrong to pursue his terroristic way while being faced with the ugly relationship between Riyadh and Washington DC. But, it is true that a big issue is there between Riyadh and Washington DC or London.

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

The number of nuclear fuel rods blown off in Chernobyl was 1660, out of one reactor unit.

The total number of nuclear fuel rods partly or fully melted or damaged or so suspected in Fukushima Daiichi is 4500, all in four reactor units.

Potentially, this Fukushima Daiichi Accident is the largest nuclear disaster in terms of the amount of uranium involved, though officially it is announced that the amount of radioactive material leaked from Fukushima Daiichi is 10% of that from Chernobyl. Yet, other sources estimate that the amount from Fukushima Daiich is 20%, 50%, or 200% of that from Chernobyl.

Now, 80,000 or more residents around Fukushima Daiichi are by comparison evacuated. It is not clear when they will be able to return to their homes. It is however 4% of the total population of the Fukushima Prefecture, that is, two million. Incidentally, the Fukushima Prefecture has GDP comparable with Vietnam's, Slovakia's, or Bangladesh's.

Someday in future, this experience of the large scale nuclear disaster might become another asset of Japan, like its supercomputer technology, though it might sound a little strange as of now.

"treasures in heaven" - (Islamic Nations)


Private Railway


Islamic Nations (Nations islamiques)

There is a mystery in the world.

If Christianity is a key to success of Europe and America, why would not all the non-Christian countries try to introduce Christianity in a large scale into their society? Then those nations would have more chances to realize their version of the European Dream and the American Dream.

The Christian Middle East, Christian India, and even Christina China must have more chances to rank with Europe and America if they totally changed their religion or philosophy to Christianity.

Indeed, there are two cases that deny such a need: the Soviet Union and Japan.

Nonetheless, the Soviet Union was based on the Judaistic-European philosophy. It is not totally anti-European Christianity.

The significance of Japan really consists in this historical fact: Japan based on totally non-European spiritualism succeeded in modernization to rank with European nations and the U.S. all through the 20th century. Accordingly, India and China would not introduce Christianity fully for their development. Yet, it might be a little more complicated for Islamic nations.

SECTION I: Modern History of Islam in General

Who is to blame for the present state of the Islamic nations?

Retreat And Anxiety: Islam Imperiled

The 19th century was a time of severe reverses for the peoples of the Islamic world. Outflanked and outfought by their old European rivals, Islamic leaders either became puppets of European overlords or their lands passed under the rule of infidel colonial rulers. Diverse forms of resistance, from the reformist path taken by the Ottoman sultans to the prophetic rebellions of leaders such as Muhammad Achmad, slowed but could not halt the European advance. European products and demands steadily eroded the economic fabric and heightened social tensions in Islamic lands. The stunning military and economic successes of the Christian Europeans cast doubts on Muslim claims to possession of the one true faith. By the century's end it was clear that neither the fundamentalists, who called for a return to a purified Islam free of Western influences, nor the reformers, who argued that some borrowing from the West was essential for survival, had come up with a successful formula for dealing with the powerful challenges posed by the industrial West. Failing to find adequate responses and deeply divided within, the Islamic community grew increasingly anxious over the dangers that lay ahead. Islamic civilization was by no means defeated, but its continued viability was clearly threatened by the powerful neighbor that had become master of the world.

So, European Christians armed with modern technology, weapons, systems, knowledge, and financial power came to occupy Islamic nations. They did not help Muslims develop themselves in modern technology, weapons, systems, knowledge, and financial power. They put Muslims in disadvantageous positions with less power to resist Western invasions. Accordingly, European nations became richer by controlling Muslims and their governments. European nations came to feel no threats from Islamic nations. European business thrived by exploiting cheap labor, big market, natural and national resources, and so on in the Islamic regions. No European elites, including those in the Vatican, claimed that European Christians had to treat Muslims as equal as possible to help them advance in modern industry and social systems. It is as if a big covert religious war was fought between European Christians and Middle East Muslims, which resulted in an overwhelming victory of the former.

Then, the World War II ended. European powers were exhausted through the devastating war. On the other hand, crude oil fields were discovered around the Persian Gulf one after another. Then the U.S. came to take its share of profits in Western dominance in the Middle East. And, very conveniently Israel was established, which justified American involvement in the Middle East. Though Western powers had to allow Muslims to get independent forming their own governments, the advantageous position they had over the Middle East never changed.

Young Muslim elites in the Middle East all wanted to go and study in Europe or America. Nobody tried to restore pride and glory of Islam. The elderly Muslim elites in the Middle East all received big money from Western oil companies. Nobody tried to restore pride and glory of Islam. Ordinary Muslims in Turkey all went or wanted to go to Germany for work; ordinary Muslims in North Africa and Palestine all went or wanted to go to France or Italy for work; and ordinary Muslims in Palestine and Pakistan all went or wanted to go to the U.S. or the U.K. for work. Nobody tried to restore pride and glory of Islam.

(For example, the British Royal Family has been so rotten morally, as proven through the Princess Diana's case. But, pious Muslims have been forced to obey the British Government for so long.)

However, some Soviet socialistic influences appeared in countries such as Iraq; some Islamic fundamental movement appeared in countries such as Iran. Even Islamic terrorists appeared in Afghanistan and Pakistan. But, they offered no hope to Muslims in large.

Then, finally, Islamic democratic movement started in Tunisia, Egypt, and other Islamic nations.

If this movement should lead to emergence of New Islam, it could be successful. Or, only if this movement should lead to emergence of New Islam, it could be successful.

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

If there were no crude oil fields at all in Islamic nations, what should happen to Muslims in the Middle East?

If all the crude oil fields in the world were in Europe, Russia, Africa, India, China, and north and south Americas, what should happen to Muslims in the Middle East?

Indeed, Allah gave the Koran and crude oil to native peoples in the Middle East. But for what purpose?

From a Japanese point of view, it is because they are so far away from Japan while facing grave threats from European and American Christians. On the other hand, Taiwan, South Korea, and even China are so close to Japan; they do not need the Koran and crude oil to conquer grave threats from European and American Christians. They only have to introduce Japanese technologies and funds, which the Far East nations have actually done.

Conversely, the God does not trust European and American Christians. That is why native peoples in the Middle East are given the Koran and crude oil while East Asian countries are given Japanese technologies and funds.

So, the point at issue is rather how much the God does not trust European and American Christians.

Yet, Muslims in the Middle East have to advance to respond to the expectations of Allah. They have to probably advance to New Islam.

Internal Radioactive Exposure



Internal Radioactive Exposure (Exposition à la radioactivité interne)

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

There is an interesting old shinto shrine in the suburb of Tokyo, since it claims that the shrine was originally the leading or the highest-ranked shrine in an ancient country or region Musashi in which Tokyo of today is situated.

In older days, shrines in each region of Japan were ranked according to their origin and history or closeness to the imperial court. Though the imperial capital of Japan has moved from the Nara (Yamato) region to Kyoto and finally to Tokyo in the late 19th century, the leading or the highest-ranked shrine in an ancient country or region Musashi in which Tokyo of today is situated was changed from this shrine to another around the 14th century.

However, this area is at the end of a fault running for 33 km which can be a great threat to Tokyo. It can cause a strong local earthquake which might claim thousands of lives. It is called the Tachikawa Fault.

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

In addition, there is a very bad administrative rule in Japan in terms of restriction on agriculture for radioactive contamination.

In the case of Chernobyl, a farming lot indicating 493 Becquerels of radiation is not allowed to be used for agriculture. But, in Japan now, this upper limit of ground radiation for agriculture is set at 5000 Becquerels, which is 10 times larger than Chernobyl's limit for radioactive ground pollution. Put candidly, this is a big problem, though agricultural products are faithfully monitored by authorities in Japan so that no dangerously contaminated foods are brought to market.

Anyway, the Fukushima Prefecture government has decided to check all the residents, namely two million Fukushima citizens, and examine their sate of internal radioactive exposure, starting in August or so.
