" thy record is not true" - (DNA of Europeans and Japanese)

Around Tokyo Bay...

DNA of Europeans and Japanese (acide désoxyribonucléique des Européens et des Japonais)

My theory is that Israelites were a branch tribe of Sumerians. Abraham left Mesopotamia when a Sumerian kingdom fell in the region 4000 years ago. The great tribe Israelite must have come from also great ancestors, and only Sumerians and Egyptians could meet this criterion. Therefore, as The Old Testament asserts, Abraham must have been from a branch tribe of Sumerians. Logically, Christ Jesus was a descendant of Sumerians. But, where did Sumerians come? Of course Africa ultimately, but through what path?

SECTION I: Ancestors of Europeans (& European Americans)

Just one man who had M173 and then M343 in his DNA around 30,000 years ago became the common ancestor of today's European races.

The genetic markers that define my ancestral history reach back roughly 60,000 years to the first common marker of all non-African men, M168, and follow my lineage to present day, ending with M343, the defining marker of haplogroup R1b.
If you look at the map highlighting my ancestors' route, you will see that members of haplogroup R1b carry the following Y-chromosome markers:

M168 > M89 > M9 > M45 > M207 > M173 > M343

Today, roughly 70 percent of the men in southern England belong to haplogroup R1b. In parts of Spain and Ireland, that number exceeds 90 percent...

M343: Direct Descendants of Cro-Magnon

Fast Facts
Time of Emergence: Around 30,000 years ago
Place of Origin: Western Europe
Climate: Ice sheets continuing to creep down Northern Europe
Estimated Number of Homo sapiens:
Tools and Skills: Upper Paleolithic

Around 30,000 years ago, a descendant of the clan making its way into Europe gave rise to marker M343, the defining marker of my haplogroup. You are a direct descendent of the people who dominated the human expansion into Europe, the Cro-Magnon.
The Cro-Magnon are responsible for the famous cave paintings found in southern France. These spectacular paintings provide archaeological evidence that there was a sudden blossoming of artistic skills as my ancestors moved into Europe. Prior to this, artistic endeavors were mostly comprised of jewelry made of shell, bone, and ivory; primitive musical instruments; and stone carvings.
The cave paintings of the Cro-Magnon depict animals like bison, deer, rhinoceroses, and horses, and natural events important to Paleolithic life such as spring molting, hunting, and pregnancy. The paintings are far more intricate, detailed, and colorful than anything seen prior to this period.
My ancestors knew how to make woven clothing using the natural fibers of plants, and had relatively advanced tools of stone, bone, and ivory. Their jewelry, carvings, and intricate, colorful cave paintings bear witness to the Cro-Magnons' advanced culture during the last glacial age.

This marker M173 represents Haplogroup R1 (Y-DNA) which characterizes Caucasians.
The majority of members of haplogroup R belong to its subgroup R1, defined by marker M173. R1 is very common throughout Europe and western Eurasia in the form of its subclades R1a1a-M17 and R1b1b2-M269.[10][11]

R1 is the second most important haplogroup in Indigenous peoples of the Americas following haplogroup Q, and spreads specially in Algonquian peoples from United States and Canada.[8]

Anyway, this is the very basic explanation about where ancestors of Europeans had come.

Note that the last glacial epoch in Europe had just ended 10,000 years ago. Ancestors of Europeans with DNA M173 moved to Europe while glaciers were everywhere in most of Europe. Or they moved in Europe as glaciers receded to the north.

Also note that ancestors of some Native Americans who had also acquired M173 started to move surprisingly to the east as far as America after having departed from ancestors of Europeans in Southeast Siberia.

SECTION II: Ancestors of Japanese

Three races with different sets of Y-DNA came to Japan: the seacoast race, the East Asia race, and the East Siberia race.

They had once split and departed from one another after having left Africa, but got together again in Japan.
(Click to enlarge.)

Europeans are a result of a series of splitting of mankind for about 100,000 years after having left Africa. But, Japanese are a product of splitting and merging again of races. Japanese are more complicated than Europeans in terms of DNA.

In addition, the haplogroup D of Y-DNA is getting scare in mankind today. Yet, Japanese are characterized with D. Japanese in main islands (40\%), Okinawa people (56%), and Ainu people (88%) all share this DNA feature, but Chinese and Koreans do not. In this context, Japanese are very unique in terms of Y-DNA
According to a 2008 study by Shi et al., however, if focusing haplogroup D, Andamanese and Tibetan people diverged from the original haplogroup D around from 66,400 to 51,600 years ago, and the Japanese subclade emerged around 37,700 years ago.[35] The study suggested that those patrilines belonging to haplogroup D are possibly the first modern human groups in East Asia based on the Out of Africa theory because their ancestor haplogroup DE is found in African people in Nigeria along with Tibetan in East Asia.
So, the haplogroup D is old; Japanese are from an old lineage of mankind. Japanese keep some original characteristics of mankind that were already established when mankind left Africa. But, other Asians, including Chinese and Indians, are mostly characterized by the haplogroup O of Y-DNA which rather lately emerged through a DNA split.

As for resemblance between Japanese and Tibetans, the Tibetan language is included in a language group that also includes Chinese which is essentially different from Japanese. But, some key features of Tibetan is shared by Japanese, which supports the historical fact the Y-DNA study indicates.

But, why 1 = 0.999999999999....?

It is because the concept "one" has two ways of definition: 1 and 0.9999...
And, this concept and this definition were created before the arithmetic in the logic space that was created prior to the material universe.

"lest they should believe" - (Chinese Icons and Japanese)

Great Tokyo Bay...

A Main Gun of Battle Ship Mutsu...

Of Imperial Navy in WWII...

Chinese Icons and Japanese (Icônes chinois et japonais)

Before WWII, the Empire of Japan had nine Imperial Universities.

They were situated in Tokyo, Kyoto, Sendai, Fukuoka, Sapporo, Seoul, Taipei, Osaka, and Nagoya. They were founded in this order between 1886 and 1931.

To our surprise, the Imperial university in Seoul, Korea, and the one in Taipei, Taiwan, were built earlier than those in Osaka and Nagoya in Japan proper or mainland Japan.

Japanese leaders before WWII tried to modernize and industrialize Korea and Taiwan, then part of the Empire, so much by investing huge resources into each region. In this context, the Empire of Japan gave more than it took from Korea and Taiwan unlike Western colonization in Africa and Asia.

Taipei University of the Empire of Japan:

SECTION I: Sun, Chiang, Chou, Mao, and Japanese

Sun Yat-sen (1866-1925) was greatly helped by some Japanese.

Chiang Kai-shek (1887-1975) was trained in Japan.

Chou En-lai (1898-1976) learnt in Japan.

Mao Tse-tung (1893-1976) greatly respected some Japanese.

And, as you know, Sun Yat-sen carried out the Chinese revolution to crush the Qing Dynasty. Chiang Kai-shek, after having learnt in military schools of the Empire of Japan between 1907 and 1911, was promoted by Sun to be a top leader of the Chinese Nationalist Party. Chou En-lai and Mao Tse-tung, having joined the Whampoa Military Academy Sun had established in China, tied up with Chiang to fight against the Imperial Army and Navy during WWII, and then Chou and Mao leading the Communist Party entered a great civil war with Chiang after WWII. And, as you know, Chiang moved to Taiwan while Mao and Chou built the People's Republic of China setting its capital in Beijing.

In other word, without great help from some Japanese, China today could not be established.

One of those Japanese who especially supported Sun Yat-sen, the political and military founder of modern China, was Umeya Shokichi (1868-1934).

In this year, the 100th anniversary of the Xinhai revolution and the Republic of China, the story of these Japanese supporters shows another face of their country. If their advice had been followed, the history of the 20th century would have been different.

"The Japanese who fought for China's revolution were inspired by the fervor of Dr Sun," wrote Kayano in his memoirs. "When I talked with him, I realized he would fight until the end. So I decided to join his struggle, to live and die with him."

Kayano and his compatriots were inspired by Sun's vision of a democratic and republican China that would end the country's decline and ally with Japan in opposing the western powers. They wanted China to follow the example of their own country -- to modernize, industrialize and earn its independence.

After the Qing government forced the Macau government to expel Sun from the city in 1894, he spent the next 17 years in exile, in Europe, the United States, Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand and mainly Japan, which he visited 10 times and where he spent nearly 10 years. He built up a support base of 300 Japanese.

One of them, Toten Miyazaki, believed that Sun could change China and introduced him to senior politicians who gave their approval for him to remain in Japan and set up his operational base there.

It was in Tokyo on August 20, 1905 that Sun formed the Tongmenhui, the Chinese Revolutionary Alliance (CRA), which seven years later became the Kuomintang. It was the foundation of the Xinhai revolution. Eight Japanese were members, including Kayano and Shokichi Umeya, who had met Sun earlier that year in Hong Kong, where he ran a photographic shop.

Umeya was also inspired by Sun's vision of a prosperous East Asia and freedom and equality for its citizens and threw himself wholeheartedly into the struggle.

Umeya rented an office for the CRA in the Yurakucho district of central Tokyo and borrowed money to finance its newspaper, the Voice of the People. Over the next 20 years, Umeya raised billions of yen to pay for Sun's travel and living expenses, weapons and ammunition for the uprisings and, in 1915, a flying school in Japan to train Chinese pilots.

After Sun's death, Umeya commissioned four large bronze statues, up to 2.5 meters high and each weighing a ton, and sent them to China. They remain today where he donated them – Sun's mausoleum in Nanjing, the Huangpu Military Academy and Zhongshan University in Guangzhou and the Sun Memorial Home in Macao.

Umeya also commissioned dozens of small busts but ran out of money. So he used funds set aside for his daughter's wedding. When she protested, he replied: "many Japanese respect Mr Zhong-shan. These busts will ensure that his thinking lives on for ever."

He even planned a temple in Sun's memory. After the Japanese occupation of Manchuria in 1931, he publicly criticized the government and was interrogated by the military police; the newspapers called him a 'traitor'.

A sick man, he went to Tokyo to petition the Prime Minister in person but collapsed at the city's railway station and died on November 23, 1934, aged 66.

It is estimated that Umeya provided financial support worth currently $10 billion for Sun, believe or not.

It is not only Sun that Umeya directly helped. When Chiang married a sister of Sun's wife, Umeya also took care of Chiang and his new wife (whose mother was then in Japan) as he had done when Sun married his wife in Japan, a daughter of a super-rich Chinese clan. Chiang wanted to celebrate his wedding in Japan as Sun had done, though it was held in Shanghai.

Chiang and Mao:

Incidentally, Mao Tse-tung respected Takamori Saigo, the greatest Japanese historic figure in the Meiji Restoration around 1870. Mao, when he was young, was also glad to hear that the Empire of Japan defeated the Russian Empire in 1905. Mao also invited Toten Miyazaki, a Japanese right-wing political activist, asking him to deliver lecture in a teacher's school of Hunan, China.

It is true that most of the Japanese people clearly understand their position, status, and leadership in Asia, especially in East Asia.

Though ancient civilization was brought to Japan from ancient China or through Korea, or in the case of Buddhism as far as from India, the Japanese people are confident that Japan has cultivated itself to build unique culture and civilization in these 2000 years, or especially in these 1000 years.

Since the late 19th century when Japan started modernization by opening the door of the nation to introduce European civilization in earnest despite an old problem concerning Christianity, Japan has been the leader in Asia, especially in East Asia. However, it bred arrogance, since the Empire of Japan became one the four most armed nations in the world before WWII. Though feeling of superiority over other Asians, including Chinese, has been kept among some Japanese, the defeat and collapse of the Empire of Japan in the war against the U.S., which was fought as the Pacific theater of WWII, made most of the Japanese people humble enough to adopt and maintain the Pacifist Constitution to date:
Constitution of Japan

ARTICLE 9. Aspiring sincerely to an international peace based on justice and order, the Japanese people forever renounce war as a sovereign right of the nation and the threat or use of force as means of settling international disputes. (2) To accomplish the aim of the preceding paragraph, land, sea, and air forces, as well as other war potential, will never be maintained. The right of belligerency of the state will not be recognized.

The Imperial Government surrendered to the Allies on August 15, 1945. Accordingly, a big and solemn ceremony is held in Japan on this day every year, which is dedicated to the spirits of the war dead. To attend the ceremony is one of the most important duties of their Majesties the Emperor and Empress of Japan.

Luk 8:11 Now the parable is this: The seed is the word of God.
Luk 8:12 Those by the way side are they that hear; then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved.

"shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob" - (China Factors )

Tokyo Bay...

China Factors (Facteurs en Chine)

Mencius, a great Chinese philosopher who lived between 372 – 289 BCE, said:
"You may be in the service of the court if you are poor. But, you must not expect promotion to a higher position to receive a higher salary, since you work for a king only because you are poor.

When Confucius was a keeper of a warehouse in a king's house, he only said that he had to keep books honestly and correctly.

When Confucius was a keeper of cows and sheep in a king's pasture, he only said that he had to feed and fatten the livestock.

If a poor man works in the court, he must keep a low profile. Even Confucius did not blow his own trumpet when he was serving the court at humble positions.

However, what a shame it is for a man of exalted rank not to keep the country out of injustice."


SECTION I: "China, China, Big Money!!"

Let's see the trend of external payments balance of JAPAN, China, and South Korea, respectively.

Yes, it is just between 2004 and 2007 that China earned so much money through trade with JAPAN, the U.S. and the rest of the world.

It is confirmed that the US-China trade was boosted since 2004. The US-China trade could be the major factor for China's great expansion in its international accounts.

But, let's check the trend of the JAPAN-China trade.

A steep increase in the amount of the JAPAN-China trade can be observed since 2001. So, first the JAPAN-China trade was multiplied around 2000, following Japan's mighty investment of funds into and provision of technologies for China. Then, factories and plants in China mostly run by foreign affiliated companies started to beef up their production capability. Subsequently, those factories and plants in China started to export more and more goods to the American market, to earn a huge amount of U.S. dollars.

Most of Americans think about China only in terms of the U.S.-China trade. But, the trend of the U.S.-China trade is rather a derivative from the JAPAN-China trade or basically from Japan's mighty investment of funds into and provision of technologies for China.

1... Japan... 176.7... 35.0
2... South Korea... 138.4... 35.0
3... Taiwan... 115.7... 35.0

SECTION II: "China, China, Agression!!"

It is so reasonable to split China into Tibet, East Turkestan, South Mongolia, and Main China. Taiwan must continue to be independent.

It is further desirable to split Main China into Manchuria and Han's China. And, Han's China should be split into a Yellow River republic and a Long River republic.

Hong Kong (with Macao) should be allowed to become independent.

Then, true democracy and freedom will flourish in the Chinese Continent with seven new republics on it.

Yet, the reality is that China is trying like a pirate to take ocean areas that apparently belong to Vietnam, Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, the Philippines, and Taiwan, respectively, as well as the Senkaku Islands that belong to Japan (Okinawa Prefecture or Ryukyu) for more than 1,000 years.


Indeed, the first major empire of the Han Chinese, the Qin Dynasty lasting from 221 to 207 BC, had nothing to do with Korea, Manchuria, Mongolia, Central Asia, Tibet, even Sichuan, the region facing Taiwan without a need to mention Taiwan, and Hainan.


China must be humble.

Christ Jesus never wrote poetry.

The Koran is said to include many sentences which are poetic.

Indeed it is useless to say that a man is two or three, but the God is a trillion, a septillion (10^24), a quindecillion (10^48), a novemtrigintillion (10^120), a centillion (10^303), or more, or otherwise an infinity and more.

Truly before you were born, the God existed; after you die, the God still exists.

And, before the first member of mankind was born, the God existed; after the last member of mankind dies, the God still exists.

Essentially, every man lives for the God. According to Christ Jesus, love is the only way to access the God.

(There was such a time as was August 12, 1975...

Mat 8:10 When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel.
Mat 8:11 And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven.
Mat 8:12 But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
Mat 8:13 And Jesus said unto the centurion, Go thy way; and as thou hast believed, so be it done unto thee. And his servant was healed in the selfsame hour.

"straightway he entered into a ship" - (2011 and 1937)

Fukushima City...

Fukushima City Street in Spring of 2011

2011 and 1937 (2011 et 1937)

It is a little surprise for me to find that such a new year card was actually used in Japan in 1937:

And in 1938:

SECTION I: Foreign Born Population (Issue of 2011)

The recent shooting in Norway might be a precursor to the UK riots in this summer.

It should be also noted that riots occurred in France in 2005 and 2010.

The ratio of foreign-born immigrants:
1. Sweden - 14.4%
2.Spain - 14.3%
3.Germany - 12.9%
4.USA - 12.5%
5.France - 11.6%
6.UK - 11.3%
7.Norway - 10.9%

8.Italy - 7.1%...(of residing foreigners)

Table 2: Turks in Germany, 1973-2006

Table 3: Muslims in Norway, 1979-2005

Table 4: North Africans in France, 1957-2003

It is indeed true that more than 50 percent of Mexican immigrants in the U.S. are undocumented. Additionally, the largest foreign-born population living in the United States is comprised of both legal and illegal Mexican immigrants, according to the Migration Information Source. The next largest source of immigration to the U.S. comes from the Philippines.

It is true the ratio of foreigners permanently living in Japan is one-digit smaller than in the U.S. and European nations.
In 2005, there were 1,555,505 foreign residents permanently residing in Japan, representing 1.22% of the Japanese population.

The issue for Japan is rather shrinking population from 127 million of today's level. And, there is a general concern that many Chinese have come to stay in big cities of Japan on an illegally permanent basis. Except this controversial Chinese resident problem, no serious problems exist in Japan in terms of immigrants from Africa, Islamic nations, south Asian countries, and Latin America.

The point at issue is that unlike the U.S. and European nations Japanese businesses have moved their operation in a large scale wholly or partially to Taiwan, China, South Korea, Thailand, and other Asian nations and even to America and Europe. So, most of local Asians and Latin Americans do not have to come to Japan. They can find jobs in Japanese companies and factories in their own countries or in America or Europe. Even Africans might find jobs in Japanese companies operating in Europe, such as Sony.

From a historical point of view, the Roman Empire collapsed as it took so many foreign tribes in its national structure. Past Chinese dynasties were all taken over by a new dynasty through enervation and weakening caused by conflicts with other tribes and foreign invaders.

So, in a long-term scope, the immigrant situations in Western Europe and North America indicate a great change to come in future in the European-Christian dominant global regime, though it does not mean new hegemony to be held by Chinese or Muslims. But. it will be a change leading a full-scale greater change that would occur once in 2000 years.

SECTION II. Shanghai in 1937

From a Japanese point of view, WWII began four years before 1941 when the Imperial Navy of Japan attacked U.S. Naval bases in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

Before the summer of 1937, Chiang Kaishek's China and Nazi Germany had already developed their military cooperation, expecting decisive battles with the Empire of Japan.

Accordingly, Chiang Kaishek's China and Nazi Germany concluded a treaty for military cooperation in early 1930's. German generals and officers came to China to train Chinese soldiers, provide weapons, and guide Chinese generals and officers in drawing strategies against the Imperial troops.

The point at issue is that Shanghai had been an international city. France, the U.K., the U.S., and Japan had their own administrative zones in Shanghai. Chinese President Chiang Kaishek regarded Shanghai as a kind of foreign territory. Chiang wanted to drive out foreign troops stationed in Shanghai. Shanghai was a money center of China at the time. Big wealth was in Shanghai. So, Chiang, with help from German generals, made a plan to attack and invade Shanghai.

(Refer to
"Between 1911 and 1941, cooperation between Germany and China was instrumental in modernizing the industry and the armed forces of the Republic of China prior to the Second Sino-Japanese War.")

Chiang mobilized 650,000 soldiers and 200 military planes to attack and invade the international city Shanghai. In Shanghai, there stationed were just 2,800 American troops, 2,600 British troops, 2,050 French troops, 770 Italian troops, and 2,500 Marines of the Empire of Japan, all protecting 3.5 million residents in Shanghai.  The areas in Shanghai directly governed by Americans and Europeans (with cooperation of Japanese) were called concessions, though in the concessions so many rich and poor Chinese were living to at least enjoy Shanghai's greatest prosperity in Asia of 1930's.

Subsequently, the Empire of Japan took up this huge challenge, eventually dispatching 250,000 soldiers from Japan proper or mainland Japan to Shanghai and carrying out long-distance air missions with 500 military planes flying over the East China Sea from Japan proper and Taiwan in addition to sending 130 Naval ships.

German weapons and strategies and a superior number of soldiers did not help Chiang Kaishek. In two months, Chinese troops were totally broken. They fled to Nanjing where Chiang Kaishek and other Chinese leaders were waiting for a report of victory in War of Shangahai. Tokyo was reluctant to allow the Imperial troops to advance deep into the inland of the Chinese Continent. But, the Imperial troops chased Chinese troops taking flight to Nanjing.

In this way, the War of Shanghai President Chiang Kaishek started with help of German generals in August 1937 ended with the fall of Nanjing in December 1937. In paths, roads, villages, fields, and hills between Shanghai and Nanjing over 300 km (190 miles) scattered were hundreds of thousands of dead bodies of Chinese soldiers. To avoid disgracing themselves in the world, Chinese leaders started to claim that the Imperial troops of Japan killed hundreds of thousands of citizens in Nanjing. But, the fact is that population of Nanjing before occupation by the Imperial troops was 200,000; after the Japanese occupation, it grew to 230,000.

So, these battles between Shanghai and Nanjing must be regarded as one War: the Shanghai-Nanjing War of 1937.

And, this War was between the Empire of Japan representing France, the U.K., Italy, and the U.S. that had then-legitimate interest in Shanghai and Chiang Kaishek's China that tied up with Nazi Germany.

Yet, after the Shanghai-Nanjing War of 1937 and the fall of Najing, the diplomatic relationships changed drastically.

In early 1938, Germany officially recognized Manchukuo as an independent nation. In April of that year, Hermann Göring banned the shipment of war materials to China and in May, German advisors were recalled to Germany at Japanese insistence.

This shift from a pro-China policy to a pro-Japan one was also damaging to German business interests, as Germany had far less economic exchange with either Japan or Manchukuo than China.

The Tripartite Pact, also called the Three-Power Pact, Axis Pact, Three-way Pact or Tripartite Treaty was a pact signed in Berlin, Germany on September 27, 1940, which established the Axis Powers of World War II. The pact was signed by representatives of Germany (Adolf Hitler), Italy (foreign minister Galeazzo Ciano) and Japan (ambassador Saburo Kurusu).

What was more surprising for the Empire of Japan was that Chiang Kaishek turned to the U.S. to get full support.

Though it was also a long and complicated story, in December of 1941 the Imperial Navy of Japan had to eventually attack U.S. Naval bases in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, since Chiang Kaishek's and Mao Tse-tung's China got full support from the U.S.

Finally note that troops of the Empire of Japan was defending Shanghai from invading Chinese troops in August 1937, since Chinese military planes bombed international districts of Shanghai, killing so many Chinese residents.

Chinese planes' bombing of Shanghai in 1937 (Chinese today claimed that the Japanese military planes attacked the city.  It is a lie, since Japanese troops were defending Shanghai with Americans and Europeans in addition to Judaists.):

The Battle around Shanghai resulted in the Battle in Nanjing in 1937; thus Imperial Army entered the then Chinese capital Nanjing while Nanjing citizens were abandoned by Chinese leaders and generals who fled to Chongqing though they could have surrendered to the Imperial Army or let Nanjing citizens flee before them...The situation between Shanghai and Nanjing from the summer to the winter of 1937 should be reviewed more carefully.

Japan's Prime Minister Mr. Naoto Kan today finally expressed his own decision to step down when his party DPJ gets some key laws passed in the national Diet during this month.

So, he will resign at the end of August if early and possibly. His approval rating has been about 15% even in this season of anti-nuclear power in Japan due to the history of suffering atomic bomb attacks in August of 1945. PM Mr. Kan recently proposed decrease in reliance on nuclear power, so that he could have obtained more support from voters. But, the pubic have already doubted Mr. Kan's sincerity and ability in pursuing his own policy. As the ruling party DPJ would not put an end to the Kan Cabinet, the approval rating of the DPJ has also dropped. Now, it is presumed that the DPJ will lose power in the next general election. The conservative, pro-American party LDP is expected to take over power though they were defeated in the 2009 election by the DPJ.

This expected power shift in Japan from the socialistic camp to the conservative camp that respects Japan's traditional value system might suggest power shift in the U.S. through the 2012 Presidential Election. In America, a conservative camp might succeed in holding presidency in 2013.

Japan's Prime Minister Naoto Kan's Approval Rating by The Asahi Shimbun newspaper:

(It was a big incident to parties concerned, but subsequent riots might erase the memory from the pubic...

Mar 8:10 And straightway he entered into a ship with his disciples, and came into the parts of Dalmanutha.
Mar 8:11 And the Pharisees came forth, and began to question with him, seeking of him a sign from heaven, tempting him.
Mar 8:12 And he sighed deeply in his spirit, and saith, Why doth this generation seek after a sign? verily I say unto you, There shall no sign be given unto this generation.
Mar 8:13 And he left them, and entering into the ship again departed to the other side.
