Abe: “Islam Taught Japan Tolerance”

Naoki Inose Olympic bid

Japan’s PM has been praising Islam for “teaching Japan tolerance,” after having been dragged into cleaning up the diplomatic mess left by the Tokyo governor’s undiplomatic if accurate appraisal of Islamic nations as “fighting each other because the only thing they have in common is Allah.”

Abe could apparently think of nothing more convincing to say in praise of the religion of peace than:

“Japan has learned much of the spirit of tolerance from Islam [through providing Islamic nations technical assistance].”

His remarks come in response to Tokyo governor Naoki Inose having upset Muslims by commenting that “the only thing Islamic nations have in common is a belief in Allah, that’s why they are always fighting each other,” which was promptly seized upon by aggrieved Muslims and his domestic opponents as being “un-Olympic” in spirit, although Turkey itself seems to have magnanimously ignored the comments.

Inose rather lamely disavowed the comment by saying “it did not convey my true intent,” displaying none of his former boss Ishihara’s appetite for offending people.

Amongst actual Japanese there is some incredulity at his statements – although the more ironic reading is apparently lost on them:

“Nice follow through from Abe there!”

“This is laying it on way too thickly. They should actually take a stand against terrorism for once.”

“It is not really a believable follow through, he should have said they discovered zero or something.”

“The only people who say it is a religion of peace are those who know absolutely nothing about it.”

“Thankfully the Turks are being very nice about this.”

“Turkey and Japan, two nations united in being loathed by the world for their butchery. I guess they feel sorry for each other.”

“If they lash out at him for this they disprove his statement so it is kind of clever.”

“Abe’s believers are as bad as Christians…”

“Inose is too smart to just make dumb remarks like this. I’m sure he planned this. to advance his bid…”

“He’s an idiot for saying anything which might offend a pro-Japanese country!”

“The New York Times is just anti-Japanese.”

“Japanese reporters are just salarymen who write what they are told. Overseas they have actual journalists who write under their own names, and the opinions in a paper are not necessarily uniform. Totally different to Japan.”

“Honestly, he wasn’t being sarcastic was he? Islam must be the world’s second least tolerant religion.”

“Tell it to the Buddhas at Bamiyan.”

“Pretty sure everything Inose said in the first place was true in any case… Islamic nations are constantly fighting each other for ethnic and sectarian reasons. He’s right.”

    Wrong. western journalism is worse. They push the agenda set by their bosses. Wonder why the media moguls are all involved with the Bilderberg group? They are the propaganda wing of that group's agenda.

    If any turk heard this they would be laughing their asses off at such childish notion. The idea that japs, whose 'empire' was bitchfucked in mere 4 years by America is in anyway equal to the ottoman empire that lasted for over 700 years is laughably amusing. These japs are so delusional.

    Seeing this type of almost autistic mentality, it's no surprise Koreans and Chinese are fucking them left and right.

    You obviously haven't lived in Japan.

    “Japanese reporters are just salarymen who write what they are told" IS a simple and obvious truth that you would have learned if you had lived there and put some sort of effort into immersing yourself in their culture.

    so you mean that western media is better than that?.

    i know very well that Swedish media(as a example) is controlled in the same way to push a agenda.

    journalists are mindless drones which either copy foreign media or buy articles already written by advertisers. you rarely see a name under a article

    Obviously you have no first hand experience with jap media inner workings, or any media structures in that region. Their level of corruption and political cock-sucking makes our media seem like boy scouts.

    Very typical of first-world posh kids to bitch about 'political corruption' in the west when they wouldn't even survive 2 weeks in the same occupational environment overseas.

    OK.. now if you add RT, FOX & CCTV. to the mix you might get close to the complete picture.

    If you mix leftist british, rightish US, russian and chinese propaganda the truth might turn out to be somewhere within the blend.

    The best example is Georgias attack on Russian troops in south ossetia... most western media (including the BBC) used to forget that Russias actions were a response to something that happened beforehand.

    If you want to stick with British sources try janes, (JDW etc.) they had the full story on that one.

    Lol yes this exist but only in tabloid/mass media if you go a bit off the beaten track and read actual newspapers with their own correspondent network and more than one editor who determine the editorial policy you actually get the journalists who write under their own name and their own opinion

    The newspaper im currently reading never has a solitary opinion on important topics but instead many different ones from relevant scientists/personaltities forming a "discussion" kind of
    Articles that are just the opinion of one person/journalists are markes as such.

    But obviously its all a big conspiracy huh?

    Actually if you want lolis, islam is the perfect religion, you're even allowed to have sex and divorce before they are old enough to get pregnant...(the wait period for making sure she's not pregnant doesn't even apply in this case) sex is OK for ages 9 and up, sexual deeds are without age restriction.
    And unlike christianity it's ok to marry after being divorced...

    For looking tits, almost any other religion or or faith is a better option...

    I'm pretty ok with being biased against ideologies like Islam and Christianity. Try reading their holy books, they openly advocate things like slavery, rape and genocide.
    If you want to keep praising shit like that, well, I'll be perfectly happy to treat you the same way I treat nazi scum. Hell, their "holy book" is even a lot less violent and bigoted than yours.

    Here's some juicy stuff from the Cult of Islam towards unbelievers.

    "Surely! Those who disbelieved in Our Ayat (proofs, evidences, verses, lessons, signs, revelations, etc.) We shall burn them in Fire. As often as their skins are roasted through, We shall change them for other skins that they may taste the punishment. Truly, Allah is Ever Most Powerful, All-Wise." Sura 4:56

    Threats of Jizya tax: Sura 9:28-9:33
    Laughable compulsion in religion: Sura 2:256 & 109:2-109:6 contradicts their other scripts such as Sura 2:105, 3:85, 8:39, 9:5. That's just their Koran.

    Read the evil in their Sahih books such as Bukhari Vol. 9:57 "...Whoever changes his religion, kill him."

    Unlike the True Living God Yahweh, their satanic Allah is evil and isn't a Savior. Ask any Muslims if their Allah ensures their salvation they won't be able to answer other then it's Allah's will.

    Watch for their trickery to change subjects and other things.

    You know, this Yahweh guy has a funny idea of "saving" mankind when the only reason we supposedly need saving is because he himself punished a bunch of yet unborn people for something they had no control over. You'd think that for a perfect inflatable creature, he could have thought of putting a fence around his bloody tree.

    Sounds like humanity needs less of his saving and more of being saved from him.

    Seriously don't take the actions of a few and think that the many are the same. The majority of the extremists are illiterate gits who don't know enough about the world to be able to unlock the knowledge of Islam. Those who don't know about the world cannot properly understand the Quran. Please don't consider the majority of peace loving muslims the same as those gits/assholes who distort the teachings of Islam. Seriously, haven't you guys read and watched enough stories where people end up alienating an entire group/country just because a few of them went wrong? Religion isn't the problem. People are. Some people endorsed witch huntings all in the name of religion despite there being no such thing allowed. Muslims are going through a similar experience. And they're growing out of it. But they won't if others keep alienating them. Humans can only take so much before snapping. The rest is up to everyone.

    I think it's not so unbelievable that most Muslims want world to be place of peace & love, and extremists are just bad apples. Most people want to get along with others, or at least mind their own buisness if they can't.

    But you know, there's saying: "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing". If Muslims don't step aganist extremists themself, things will never go better.

    Likely won't happen. Most of them are raised to be extremists. Someone once said that Islam is now where Christianity used to be around the Middle Ages. I always thought that was a pretty accurate statement.

    "but I take it you've probably never even met a Muslim have you?"

    It really wouldn't matter much if he had because meeting a nice guy who happens to be Islamic doesn't change the politics, culture or general behavior of the group in their own countries, nor does it mean he would remain a nice guy if he thought the battles of the old country had spread to yours and it was time to throw down.

    Most??? You can't be serious. Your statement could have been ok if you had said "a lot", "many" or even "too many", but not the most/majority of muslims.

    On a related note, some islamic governments are referring to their own people as terrorists because they are trying to overthrow their corrupt regimes.

    Traditional Islam isn't very aggressive. Like medieval catholic Christianity it doesn't necessarily teach what's in the book...

    The sura in the koran are not sorted by time of revelation but by lenght so unlike reading the bible an uneducated person will not know which statements are the last and therefor religious law. (and the bible generally leaves a lot more up to interpretation...)

    Picking out sura quotes randomly can create the appearance of a "religion of peace"
    But if you read the koran in the correct sura order you end up at a much more aggressive islam closer to Salafi, Taliban or the original teachings of Mohamed.
    So the more educated you are about the Koran the more militant it will appear.

    Sadly, you are correct. When the Prophet lived in Mecca, he preached about peace and living with other religions, when he moved to Medina and was the head of an army, he preached that Islam had to be superior and that anyone who disagreed should be killed. He also invented "abrogation" where whenever anyone pointed out he was contradicting what he said before, he would say that Allah had changed his mind and that what he said now replaced what he had said before.
