Israeli security firm was in charge at Japanese nuke facilities prior to disaster - from 2011

The Ugly Truth
Tue, 15 Mar 2011 00:00 CDT

Ed note - to all those who scoffed at my questioning whether or not the present nuclear meltdown taking place at Japan's nuke facility might have been part of an Israeli intel operation aimed at demonstrating the power of Israel's stuxnet computer virus, Haaretz is now reporting that it was the Israeli security firm Magna that was providing security for the plant prior to the incident.

Source: Haaretz

Israeli firm which secured Japan nuclear plant says workers there 'putting their lives on the line' Magna CEO says Japanese workers at nuclear plant 'projecting business as usual' but says it is 'unclear if they are healthy due to the high level of radiation at the reactor, which is life-threatening.'

funny article

considering there is a rumor out there that the camera system they installed held a tactical nuke and that the subsequent tsunami damage was tact nukes as well. Japan is being blackmailed to comply ?? hmm

look it up you'll see what i am talking about.

"He's this eccentric Ghandi-Like figure that you cant touch with the normal bribes that people respond to."
the man Doug Wead on DR. RON PAUL

I don't know if anyone cares for this much detail--

but recently my family members who sometimes 'get' what is happening on MSM have reported that there are more incidents of dead sealife (mostly animals)--

on the coastlines around the world--

I see a connnection with that first article on the link about Fukushima--

if anyone is interested--

COULD be a connnection, at any rate, though the scientists in my family would tell me to 'wait, read the entire thing first and then read a few other things on the same topic and then give it time before jumping to any conclusions'--

I would put a smiley face down here if it weren't all so frightening--for everyone; especially, though, I feel heartache for the vulnerable ones in Japan--the aged and the young--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

this is some of the detail--which could account for . . .

what appears to be a greater loss of sealife in recent months--

again, writing that out with caution (I don't pretend to be a scientist, though I know my scientific family members would like me to be more careful--)

With caution given to the various idealizations (unknown actual oceanic state during release, unknown release area, no biological effects included, see section 3.4), the following conclusions may be drawn. (i) Dilution due to swift horizontal and vertical dispersion in the vicinity of the energetic Kuroshio regime leads to a rapid decrease of radioactivity levels during the first 2 years, with a decline of near-surface peak concentrations to values around 10 Bq m−3 (based on a total input of 10 PBq). The strong lateral dispersion, related to the vigorous eddy fields in the mid-latitude western Pacific, appears significantly under-estimated in the non-eddying (0.5°) model version. (ii) The subsequent pace of dilution is strongly reduced, owing to the eastward advection of the main tracer cloud towards the much less energetic areas of the central and eastern North Pacific. (iii) The magnitude of additional peak radioactivity should drop to values comparable to the pre-Fukushima levels after 6–9 years (i.e. total peak concentrations would then have declined below twice pre-Fukushima levels). (iv) By then the tracer cloud will span almost the entire North Pacific, with peak concentrations off the North American coast an order-of-magnitude higher than in the western Pacific.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Headline is misleading slander

The article opens up by saying that the Israeli security firms ARE CONFIRMING THAT THERE IS NUCLEAR MELTDOWN HAPPENING.

The article informs us that the Israeli security firm was installed after the quake tsunami to protect the facility from theft of nuclear materials, and they state THEY ARE CONCERNED for the lives of the 50 Japanese workers who remained, they have not seen them, they understand these brave workers remained behind to SAVE JAPAN, and while that is honorable, the camera can do a better job and there is no need for human sacrifice to a company that has been damaged by a quake.

"Magna CEO says Japanese workers at nuclear plant 'projecting business as usual' but says it is 'unclear if they are healthy due to the high level of radiation at the reactor, which is life-threatening."

The article continues that a second Israeli security firm has cameras that can detect radiation clouds and they too are worried about the health of the workers who remained behind

"Although there is no access to the area, Siboni said the cameras from his company's security system - which were installed high up - were probably not damaged and likely captured the post-earthquake explosions at the site, as well as the impact of the tsunami. "

The post explosions were a question Israeli security is now confirming. This is news..

The Japanese are so impressed with the Israeli security they are ordering more:

"Magna BSP was established by Siboni about 10 years ago and is owned by several partners. Based in Dimona, the firm employs 15 people, a number which Siboni expects to expand dramatically in light of additional orders Magna has received from Japan and interest shown by the operators of nuclear reactors in other countries. Its operations in Japan are conducted through a Japanese government firm."

And more:

"The Arava-based Magna BSP company, which specializes in producing and installing stereoscopic sensory and thermal imaging cameras, had been contracted to place cameras around one of the plant's six cores - the core that has been experiencing explosions and overheating. "

And more:

""Because we are using these special cameras, we can also identify radioactive clouds, due to the spectrum that our cameras can sense," Siboni said.

Although Magna is able to gain remote access to its computer system, which receives the cameras' images, Siboni said his company had not yet been authorized to do so. "

NOT AUTHORIZED BY THE JAPANESE GOVERNMENT.

A better headline would have been, "Israeli secuirty firms at Fukashima concerned about 50 workers and radiation explosions occuring at the plant."

Instead you want to make a report that honrors the supreme abilities of Israeli security into a muckraking hate thread against Israel.

LOVE IS THE ANSWER. If you have NO LOVE for Israel, it is YOUR HATE that is the problem, offering no solution. Shame on you.

the subject head of the OP is neutral--

Please don't take it there, Granger. I'll not step on your pro-Israel toes; you don't step on my pro-Japan toes--

I wanted to know what was happening in Japan NOW--

so I responded--

if you care to read about my experiences in Japan with Japanese not long after WWII you are welcome to read below.

This is neither a forum (this thread) for blasting Israel or Japan--

some of *us* just want to know the truth. You don't have to turn everything that has Israel in it into a pro-Israel rally--

what the senior official said was out of line, and I'm glad that it's being addressed.

If you didn't know Hiroshima survivors; if you didn't live with them, then you can't know.

*I*, personally, have never denied the Holocaust, ever. I believe it happened. I don't know, can't know all the details, any more than I can know all the details of everything that happened in Japan.

But I do know what I know about Japan, and I won't shove it at you. Don't use this disaster in Japan as a platform to tell others they are "haters". I'm not one of those, and you know it!!!

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Pro-Japan?

My father LOVED Japan so much, all my toys growing up were Japanese. Many of his tattoos wer Japanese (and he is pictured in a museum by the way for his collection of protection tattoos he got in Asia.. his best friend was Japanese growing up.. and joined the japanese against the USA in WWII. My father did not blame him.

In Hawai'i our second language was Japanses. my year book is in Japanese, most my birthdays were in japanese restaruants, all my boyfriends in high school were Japanese, my best friend is Japanese. I can cook Japanese.. just yesterday for lunch I had Japanese. My customs are Japanese.. you do not wear shows in my house. My cats have Japanese names.. I have a huge collection of Meneki nekos, I eat with chop sticks and have a beautiful collection of chopsticks, tea pots, and fans from Japan.

Japan LOVES Israel. Go figure!!!!!

nope

japan did something that ticked off the israelis shortly before the meltdown...can't recall at the moment what it was.

"If this mischievous financial policy [greenbacks], which has its origin in North America, should become endurated down to a fixture, then that government will furnish its own money without cost. It will pay off its debts and be without debts. It will hav

different question--

I'm curious about this. Does anyone know what is happening in Japan now?

I have a close family member who was involved with studying different aspects of and different kinds of nuclear energy.

I feel that the entire field has been so muddled that it's hard for non-scientists (and even some scientists, more than likely) to sort it out.

WHAT happened?

Again, does anyone know what is happening over there now. I've lost my contact in Japan--

And I'm feeling very confused about nuclear energy. As to what this has to do with Israel or not, I'm not sure I want to touch that; I just want to know:--

1--what is happening in Japan now--

2--and what kind of accident happened--

(in layman's terms)--

Yes, I should have spent more time talking to my close family member about this--

but I didn't; I had other interests--

I've long been an alternative energy person myself--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

whatever was behind this, if there was something behind this--

why Japan? Why the Japanese? That is my big question.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Why Japan?

I don't subscribe to this particular hypothesis because I can't fathom anyone, even the Zionists, to be capable of such evil even if they would have the capability to carry it out. Also and TBH, I haven't looked into it at all but here is Stone's claim:

"Former NSA analyst, Jim Stone, argues that there was no mag 9.0 earthquake. The tsunami was caused by nuclear bombs in the sea and the Fukushima explosion and meltdown was caused by mini-nukes hidden in cameras installed by an Israeli security firm. The motive: punish Japan for offering to enrich Iranian uranium and straying from Illuminati diktat."

http://henrymakow.com/theargumentfukushimasabotage.html

Here's stone's original report:
http://www.jimstonefreelance.com/fukushima1.html

"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom — go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, an

I don't remember now when this happened, so I may be WAY . . .

off base, and I'm acknowledging that before I say anything--

but it seemed to me that sometime before this 'accident' or incident or whatever it is--

someone came on DP and said that a close family member who was American military stationed in Korea was being sent on a top secret mission, where there was going to be testing (nuclear? This is what I'm wondering, since nuclear 'action' is mentioned in the one article)--

or some kind of war games; I don't know all the right words for this 'stuff'--I am very non-military--

and I'm not very well acquainted with weapons of any kind (except for the guns my father made me learn how to shoot years ago, he being a gun rights person, which I respect, anyway, getting off topic here)--

there were a lot of interesting comments; someone said that his family member might not come back alive--

it was very interesting, to read all the comments from those in the military, and someone else posted some kind of link to some 'activity' that was going on in that region--

northern Asia--possibly not far from Japan. So the idea that it wasn't a tsunami but was a globalist military 'game'--with U.S. obviously heavily involved--

is intriguing, but it may be a long shot, as well--

I don't know--

anyone is welcome to correct me or to add anything--

when I saw that multi-nation 'exercise' that was happening on another thread that showed the massive numbers of Chinese troops and their weapons, all for an 'exercise', I shuddered. Guess I wouldn't be any good in the military--

good thing I didn't try--

just now there are quite a few reports here and there on alternative news sources about the nuclear experiments that took place in Colorado and nearby areas, and the 'fallout' (more than one definition)--

Ah, what Truman started! :(

Experiments, testing--

interminable destruction--

and that's not even 'war'--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

I do believe there are evil people--

I won't say who they are, because I don't know/probably can't know--

it was obviously evil that was behind 9/11, as well--

Interesting things to read--

no matter what was behind this, and, even if *we* know, it seems obvious there is no way to prevent it from happening again--

what *I* want and need to know is what is happening in Japan since this tragedy--

what are the cancer rates? Are more children being born with deformities? Is the food safe?

This is my chief concern, and I have no source for it.

Evil people (behind every evil thing) will be brought to justice someday--

and though there are those who attack me here for wanting to know what is happening in Japan--

and, frankly, I hadn't read much about Israeli nuclear energy people being involved with the Japanese reactor--

I won't use that word--

or anything like it--

I've learned my lesson on here, though I continue to be attacked.

The world IS at war; things are getting crazier by the second--

and truth is always the first victim.

I have gotten the idea from a few things that were posted about 6 to 9 months ago that the Japanese government is suppressing the truth about the results of this accident--

especially anything about harm to the population of Japan--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Israel forced to apologise over offensive Hiroshima Comments

Israel forced to apologise to Japan over offensive Hiroshima comments
http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/aug/22/israel-apologis...

Head of online public diplomacy disparaged commemorations for victims of atomic bombs in Facebook posting

Israel has been forced to issue a formal apology to Japan over offensive comments posted on Facebook by its head of online public diplomacy.

The apology followed a complaint by the Japanese ambassador to Israel, Hideo Sato, after senior government official Daniel Seaman disparaged commemorations for the victims of the 1945 atomic bombs, causing a wave of protests in Japan.

"I am sick of the Japanese, 'Human Rights' and 'Peace' groups the world over holding their annual self-righteous commemorations for the Hiroshima and Nagasaki victims," Seaman wrote on his Facebook page. "Hiroshima and Nagasaki were the consequence of Japanese aggression. You reap what you sow."

The comments about Japan were part of a string of strongly worded postings by Seaman over recent months.

They included a response to a demand by the Palestinian chief negotiator, Saeb Erekat, for an end to new settlement expansion that read: "Is there a diplomatic way of saying 'Go F*** yourself'?"

At the start of Ramadan, Seaman posted: "Does the commencement of the fast of the Ramadan means [sic] that Muslims will stop eating each other during the daytime?"

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

LOL "Israel FORCED to apologize"...

By who?

And some of you anti-Israel guys claim you are anti-UN, ant-globalism.

You LOVE globalism, especially when it goes after Israel, which is all the time.

Go ahead and spin it. Your article is about WW2. And what happened to you guys and your die-hard defense of free speech? You guys love to criticize and condemn Jews and Israel, and claim others are hiding behind "political correctness", but you guys are always the first to make hypocrites out of yourselves.

Look at all the up-votes for a pro-globalist, anti-free speech article, which happens to be anti-Israel. Ha Ha Ha. You guys may have high-jacked the DP, but American conservatives are not buying your globalist propaganda.

I'll stick to issues that matter to America. Like ending foreign aid, restoring the constitution and individual liberty, and restoring sound money and free markets by ending the fed and the corporatist loopholes created by excess government involvement in the markets.

PEOPLE OPPOSING TYRANNY - Real Grass Roots!
Are you a POT or a PET - Person Embracing Tyranny?

This is not even related to the story

this is MORE anti-Israeli muckraking!

Seaman made HIGHLY OFFENSIVE and INSENATIVE remarks and was suspended. He should be fired, even if he was provoked, he LOST it and he was WRONG WRIONG WRONG!!!!!

http://japandailypress.com/israel-makes-public-apology-to-ja...

obviously, whether those of *us* in America understand

it or not, there is some negative association going on between Israel and Japan--

Littlewing brought that up; it's not disassociated with the original topic, because the original topic has to do with the fact that Israel built or supervised the building of the reactor--for good or ill.

sounds as though the offense is getting cleared up. Both nations are highly controversial (or have been in the last 70 years)--

but *I*, for one, will let them work out their differences. I don't have Japanese citizenship, and I don't have a say in any of it--

I don't think any more of the government of Japan than I do of the governments of the U.S. or Israel!!! LOL!

But I have a long, deep history with Japan.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

NO there is not.

There is a VERY WONDERFUL relationship between Japan and Israel and that's why Japan has contracted with two Israeli companies and made orders for more Israeli security. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Makuya

wow--

well, now, that's an interesting sidenote--

This Seaman person sounds . . . um . . . brutal. At least he's honest; one some level that has to be admired, even if the disagreement with his viewpoint is powerful.

I guess that our past experiences really do affect *us*. I have a lot of baggage with Japan (heartbreakingly positive and very connected to the country, even though I can see the flaws of Japan and *her* people as clearly as I can see the flaws of America; it's just that sometimes *we* are more connected to one place than another; there's not much a person can do about that; I spent time interviewing elderly Japanese about WWII; I have a perspective that is unique)--

so perhaps that is why I find it hard to be so pro-Israel. Don't want to go on record as anti-Israel at all; for one thing I don't like to be called names--

I try to be fair. I don't want to be prejudiced. It is important to me to know the truth--

but when I read that kind of insensitivity about Hiroshima and Nagasaki, I really do want to choke.

Guess that's the reason Truman was my #1 bad guy as a president; truly an evil man--

It would be hard to find two nations more disparate than Israel and Japan--

LOL!

The religions of each nation (or predominant religions; Japan is mostly Bhuddist, but there are other religions, including Christianity)--

are somewhat oppositional to each other, at least on the surface. Though Shinto has influenced Japanese politics in the past to its hurt and the hurt of others, and though there are radical, extremist, violent Bhuddists, for the most part Bhuddism is a peaceful religion, and, as homogenous as Japan is, Bhuddism does not encourage ethnocentricity--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

LittleWing's picture

Not sure where the Diplomatic Relations

stand historically between Israel and Japan but I was disgusted by the offensive and callous remarks of the Senior Israeli Official concerning the horrific bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

The problems at the Fukishima plant continue to worsen and whatever was the cause needs to be known and corrected so it can prevent another disaster.

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

this is what I need to know, LittleWing--

I've lost some of my close contacts in Japan; I was away too many years; some of my closest friends and associates immigrated to America--

and I'm stuck with asking 'strangers' about what is going on over there.

IS there another link, another blog spot where I can get information. It's been ridiculous what has happened on this thread today--

and all because I want to know the truth about Japan.

I've been away too long to have contacts anymore, which is terribly sad and I have huge regrets about it--

but that is the fact, and I want to know. I sense that Michael (part Japanese) was trying to keep some information coming in, but he's been very quiet--

I think I understand that in a way that many might not--I had some of that myself--

there must be someone on here who has some kind of connection--

I was looking for that when I got run over--

ah well; I'll pick myself up--

but I'm watching for the stampede to happen again--

once burned--

As for the offensive remarks, yes, there are people who lack filters--

even a few here on DP--

*we* all have to watch ourselves--

and it's not always easy, especially when someone steps on a sore toe--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Here are a few recent articles on Japan

for you. I'm sorry to hear you are having rough times lately. If there is anything I can do please let me know. I would love to hear of your experiences in Japan and the interviews. You have (both) always been a steady and fair voice on this forum which is appreciated by more here than you probably know. ;-)

A few articles I found quickly for you:

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2013/aug/19/volcano-eruptio...

and > as far as Israel/ Japan relations I found some statements that may shed some light on the offensive comments by the Israeli Senior Official:
6/3/2013
Settlement activities are a violation of international law, and Japan has repeatedly called upon Israel to fully freeze settlement activities. The Government of Japan strongly calls upon Israel to refrain from any unilateral act that changes the current status of East Jerusalem and to desist from implementing the above-mentioned plans of construction for the sake of progress in the peace process.

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

ah, the interviews--

I wasn't doing formal research, and I regret that I didn't compile it--

all I have is my memories, of the people and the things they said--

two of the most interesting elderly people I spoke with (one a man, one a woman)--

the woman, very well-educated, had come from a wealthy family, and, no, I don't even have her name written down; I am very ashamed now that I didn't do that--

talked to me about the deep fear the Japanese had (these people were old in the early 70s, so they weren't the generation who fought in the war; they were a good 10-20 years older than those who were actually engaged in battle)--

about starving, literally. There is a history of starvation in Japan's past; there were also times when many, if not most, of the children died (which is part of what is behind the present celebration of children's day and the art and craft of Japanese doll-making; the people literally made dolls to remind them of the children they had lsot)--

they were afraid of being cut off; I hadn't realized at that time (I was young and idealistic and just loved meeting and talking to these wonderful, refined, polite people; I had learned the language, and talking to old people was one of the highlights of my experience there; it was just something I, individually chose to do; I was on no assignment)--

that the U.S. had issued sanctions against Japan. So I understand what Dr. Paul means when he says that sanctions are an act of war. Japan was already beginning to stagger under this. I won't go so far as to say that any of that was behind their aggression in Asia--

I don't have enough information on that, but, though the aggression had begun before the sanctions, I think the sanctions increased it--

it's a simple case of blowback, for the most part.

Yes, Japan's hierarchy (both the imperial family and the upper ranking military) were corrupt; how many nations involved in that war did not have similar corruption--I think most of *us* can agree on that.

And there was a very real terror of the American machine/mindset/energy--

I knew this from other people as well, but the Japanese government had as much propaganda going as the American government did--including pictures of large, white men eating Japanese babies--

This woman was intelligent enough not to think that was a genuine fear, though there was a lot of hunger during and after the war--terrible hunger. A close family member of mine was in the occupation and spoke about how the women would try to get jobs in the kitchens on the bases so they could take scraps out to feed their families--

terrible hunger--

anyway, this woman talked a lot about what it was like. She didn't justify her people; she even apologized, which I thought was beyond gracious; I wasn't so sure she should have apologized, and I told her she owed *me* no apology--

but though the war had been 25 years earlier I still saw the fear in her eyes--and the deprivation.

I honestly don't think that my American ancestors (same age) experienced that kind of fear--

grief, yes, but not that kind of fear that went on for so many years--

not to mention the hunger--

The man I talked to the most (whose name I have written down and will never forget) spent his war years in a prison camp in Manchuria--

wow--

don't even know where to begin. He was a Christian minister. We actually became very close friends; I called him 'grandpa' in Japanese--and he was honored by it. When he returned home, there was a house but nobody living in it. His son had been killed in the war (soldier); his daughter had taken her own life, and his wife was dead of illness and starvation--

what a guy--

I honestly can't say I've met an American man with the equivalent depth of that man--

it's hard not to feel emotion even just writing about him--

He wasn't bitter towards anyone, though he was as much a victim of his own nation as any other--

he wasn't aligned with anyone but Jesus Christ--and his belief was gentle and abiding--

he was one of those caught in between ones--

as a Christian he was suspected by his own government and punished for it--

but the allies also wanted nothing to do with him, and there was no rescue for him--

so many stories; so many unsung heroes--

Thanks for asking--

sometimes I begin to forget; I did keep a journal of some of my experiences in Japan; I just wish I had written more about the old people I talked to--

one old man I tried to help, who was indigent (VERY rare in Japan, even during those years)--

and he refused my help, crying out, "American, go away"--even though I spoke in Japanese--

his terror really . . . hit me in the gut.

Enough for one day; I have reading to do and work to do--

can't DP all day long--

LOL!

Thanks again--

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Thank you for sharing your experience

I'm sure it was heart wrenching at times and an experience that stays with you forever.

I found another story regarding the OP of this post. It is from an October 2011 article. I know there was a lot of talk of a cover up of some sort right after the meltdown but I think it had more to do with not accurately reporting the severity of the accident.

Journalist Accuses Israel of Fukushima Sabotage

A leading Japanese journalist recently made two incredible claims about the Fukushima power plant that suffered a nuclear meltdown in March 2011, sending shockwaves around the world. First, the former editor of a national newspaper in Japan says the U.S. and Israel knew Fukushima had weapons-grade uranium and plutonium that were exposed to the atmosphere after a massive tsunami wave hit the reactor. Second, he contends that Israeli intelligence sabotaged the reactor in retaliation for Japan’s support of an independent Palestinian state. -

If Wars Can Be Started by Lies, They Can Be Stopped By Truth.

I bump this at the risk of being accused of something--

(not sure what)--

it's both interesting and sad how much Japan is still under America's thumb--

in spite of the fact that, in my opinion, even though their treatment of POWs was out of bounds (Japan's)--

Japan and America were both at war, and Japan just happened to be on the losing side--

the fact is that America's 'interest' (for good and ill) in Japan has both helped and hindered Japan--

sort of that of a partly benevolent slave owner who allows investment privileges to the 'head' slave--

the Japanese have been not only tolerant of Americans and America but very accepting of them--

in spite of Truman and the horrific atomic bombings--

they are VERY good at assimilating knowledge and taking the good wherever they find it--

and using it.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

thank you and thank you---

I will look into all those links. I'm finding the Corbett reports to be a rich source of information--

A few months ago I did an OP, asking if anyone could give me links about Japan--

and nobody responded--LOL!

So I gave up--

I saw this and thought I'd better try again--

I'm getting a wealth of information.

Thank you; I try VERY hard to be fair. :)

And though times are hard, I know that many people have them harder than 1988vote "do"--

But thanks--

we'll be fine; we always seem to manage to land on our feet--and we don't even have cats--

LOL!

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

Maybe you should stick to taking care of your family?

Your baiting for anti-Israel a thin veil. Why always the same play dumb act?

"Well, I just don't know, gee, wow, I can hardly believe this..

deep sign, gee goodness, I guess, that this is why I just can't buy this Israel is a good guy stuff.. <3 <3 Miko <3 <3

Oh Gee, why they have to be so, ugly, and mean..

they really are.. I mean,, I hate to say it, I don't want anyone to think that I don't care, but really..

oh, my,, this is so terrible.. ohh.. well, I just don't get it..

those poor people, God help them.. oh my.. gee..

Maybe you might wash the sheets, dishes, vacuum the rug, wash the car, dog, make you kids a toy, be a parent rather than BAIT for anti-Israel in the name of innocent you?

You're FAMILY FIRST great.. LOVE IS THE ANSWER and if you can't read the articles and connect dots, I sure hope you de better as a parent. God help your family if this is the best you got.

Granger, you've gone too far--

right over the top--

Why so much bitterness?

baiting?

You must really know a lot about that. Baiting? You don't know me well enough--

Your post is insulting--

but it doesn't do you any credit at all.

It's ridiculous that a person can't ask questions and get information on here without you coming to attack them, personally or otherwise.

You don't know me enough to know what my life is like--

Yes, I have a family--a very unique family--

but I'm in my 60s, for crying out loud. And I limited in what I can do--

I won't go into details; you have no right to know the details, not after the bitter way you've gone after me.

I won't downvote you or report you, but I think you know you went too far this time--

I've tried not to engage with you, but you are really . . .

out of control.

And what does this have to do with Miko Peled? *shaking my head* I didn't bring him up here.
By the way, as much as I love the Japanese people and their culture, I see the flaws--

I did live there for quite a while (non military)--

I have studied the flaws. I have done research on them. Did you know that the abortion rates in Japan are very high, and that many women suffer from psychological trauma as a result of using abortion as birth control? And did you know that the rate of child abuse has gone up there recently.

Can you be as honest about the nation you purport to love (Israel)?

Breaks my heart, but I see the warts. I've listened to Japanese dissidents for years. The 'ethnic' Japanese treated the Ainu much the same way that European Americans treated the native Americans, and some of them realize it and are sorry for it; others are as heartless as many Americans--

but that is in the past. Beyond cultural discrepancies, there is not much point in a person like Miko Peled in Japan at this time--

I'm not sure you care to read anything I have to say. You've made up your mind what my life is like, and you've been ugly in your responses--

and personal. But you won't acknowledge that, so there's not much I can do about it.

At least you could give a 'sarcasm alert' heads up--

I'm sorry you hate me so much, Granger.

it's hard to be awake; it's easier to dream--

I don't hate you

I don't know you. What I hate is the act. You hate Israel and you prove it by bumping posts and threads by those who are outstanding in hatred for Israel. What I hate about myself is thinking that you are sincere in "not knowingo, but sincerely wanting to KNOW THE TRUTH." What I hate is how you attack me in the name of innicents.. reduce me to a name that you will not speak;; dehumanizing me, and mocking me, "sarcasim alert".

If you think what you say and do does not HURT, let me tell you IT's HURTS VERY MUCH, and if that makes you feel good.. which it appears that it does, then where's the LOVE? Where's your TRUTH?

I read everything you say and take it seriously and to heart. Maybe that it my mistake, because it seems to be like poisioned koolaid.

My Father grew up on a rez.. I have family scattered in five states on reservations. My grandfather had a ham radio and warned his Japanese neighbors about the concentration camp round ups and saved their lives.

I have warts. Israel has warts. It must be wonderful being wart free, but if all you can do is point to others warts, I don't see the LOVE. Jesus was wart free and he LOVED all of us with warts.

LOVE IS THE ANSWER. If I didn't have LOVE for you, and others who have HURT me, I don't know what I would do. And my guess is nothing I care to entertain you or myself with.

A Ham Radio! ! !

Now, that just aint kosher....

Not at all

Being raised in the military, I never knew much about anyone besides their rank.
