Zero Islamic Terror Attacks: What London and America Need to Learn from Japan

In 2016, London’s mayor said Islamic terror attacks are just part of living in a big city.

There’s just one major problem with that.

The biggest city in the world hasn’t even had a single terrorist attack from a radical Muslim.

Tokyo, Japan boasts the largest population of any city, and they’ve got their problems, including a declining population, but Islamic terrorism isn’t one — not a single one.

There’s a few logical reasons for this.

Japan has a long history and tradition of extremely strict immigration policies, making it one of the highest homogeneous countries in the world, next to Korea. Japanese make up 98.5% with the next highest ethnic group as Koreans at 0.5%, then Chinese with 0.4%, and other at a whopping 0.6%.

In the West, diversity is seen as a moral superiority and objective, but wide open doors to Islamic extremists only invites terrorism.

From 9/11 to the Boston Marathon bombing to San Bernardino to the Pulse nightclub massacre — America has seen brutal terror attacks done in the name of radical Islam.

President Donald Trump was elected in large part because of his promise to secure the Southern border, get “tough” on illegal immigration, and “defeat” radical Islamic terrorism.

Each attempt Trump does to make America safer and more secure, he is met with protests from the mainstream media, Hollywood elites, and liberals across the coasts.

In stark contrast, London Mayor Sadiq Khan ran on diversity, and in September of last year, said the threat of terror attacks are “part and parcel of living in a big city.”

How did the West come to expect terror attacks in bigger cities? According to Tucker Carlson, “It wasn’t always this way. We made it this way.”

Carlson points out we brought this upon ourselves, or rather “the people in charge” through “reckless immigration policies…that none of us were asked to endorse, much less vote on.”

“Some of us didn’t even know they were happening,” he added, and I couldn’t agree more.

“Western cities got dangerous when they imported radical religious ideologies from other countries,” he said, and I’ll add the nuance, those are from the Islamic faith — not the Buddhists, Pentecostals, Baptists, Lutherans, or Catholics.

Tucker continued:

“Nobody from government wants to admit that, because it reflects poorly on them, but it’s true, and increasingly voters know it’s true, despite the official ban on saying it’s true.”

“In heavily Islamic areas terror is depressingly common. Elsewhere it is vanishably rare.”

I couldn’t agree more with Tucker, and the facts back us up as well.

Interestingly, President Trump’s first meeting with a foreign leader was UK Prime Minister Theresa May, who had to be rushed to safety Wednesday when Parliament came under threat of a terror attack.

May described the attack as “sick and depraved,” but sadly it has become accepted as a norm for many in the West.

Getting back to Tokyo, though. The United States could learn a vital lesson from our friends in Japan.

President Trump met with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe as president-elect and just a couple weeks after hosting May at the White House.

Trump reaffirmed his promise to Abe that he has spoken to the public many times: “America First.”

Although Trump was mostly referring to trade, this could be broadened to include national security.

You know, Japan doesn’t have to worry about homegrown terrorism.

If America doesn’t want to become another London, we have to pause, and ask ourselves if we really want to tolerate any more terror — haven’t enough American lives been taken at the hands of jihadists?

This doesn’t have to be our reality. We can change it. Let’s take a lesson from Japan.

Please carry through on your promise, Mr. President. Let’s Make America Safe Again.

Japan: Three teens arrested on suspicion of copying ISIS executions after 13yo is found nearly decapitated

One of these days jihadi John is going to find out the true meaning of Bonzai..

Japanese police on Friday arrested three teenagers on suspicion of killing a 13-year-old schoolboy, in a chilling murder some local media suggested was inspired by Isis executions such as those by Jihadi John.

The brutalized and naked body of Ryota Uemura was found in undergrowth near a river last Friday. His neck had been repeatedly hacked at, apparently with a knife, discovered nearby soaked in blood.

Low-crime Japan has been captivated by the killing, with media reporting every twist and turn in the investigation, including details of how the youngster’s mobile phone was used to send a friend request on a messaging app around the time of his death.

Populist weekly Shukan Shincho reported the wounds appeared to indicate that whoever killed Ryota may have been trying to decapitate him.

‘Some investigators suspect (the criminals) watched Internet videos showing the execution of hostages by Islamic State (IS) fighters and sought to mimic them,’ the magazine said, quoting an unnamed source close to police.

Japan is still reeling from the brutal murder of two of its citizens – war correspondent Kenji Goto and his friend Haruna Yukawa – by Isis fanatics in Syria.

Kanagawa Police Department on Friday arrested an 18-year-old boy and two 17-year-olds, whose names were withheld because they are legally minors, on suspicion of murder, public broadcaster NHK and other media reported.

While a police spokesman declined to confirm the reports, investigators also obtained arrest warrants for two other teenagers over the murder in Kawasaki, an industrial city southwest of Tokyo, media said.

Junior high school student Ryota reportedly knew the suspects, and had been attacked by them previously, media said.

Violent crime is exceedingly rare in Japan and becomes very big news when it occurs.

Tokyo governor’s ‘Islamophobic’ remarks on Muslims cause outrage in Turkey

Awwww..Islamist savages are sensitive,lol..

/SİNEM CENGİZ, ANKARA

The controversial remarks of Tokyo Governor Naoki Inose have been met by strong reactions by not only Turkish politicians but also Turkish analysts, who consider his remarks on Muslims and İstanbul unacceptable and Islamophobic.

“The governor’s remarks are very disturbing, Islamophobic and racist. It could be understandable if he promotes his city while criticizing rival cities about their developments. However, his remarks about Muslims are definitely unacceptable. His remarks are off track and derogatory,” Orhan Kemal Cengiz, a prominent jurist-writer, told Today’s Zaman.

Inose, who heads Tokyo’s bid for the 2020 Olympics Games, said in a recent interview with The New York Times that “Islamic countries, the only thing they share in common is Allah and they are fighting with each other, and they have classes.” He also added that İstanbul, which is widely perceived as Tokyo’s biggest rival to host the 2020 Olympics Games, is less developed and less equipped to host the games when compared to Tokyo.

The three cities that are the candidates to host the Olympic and Paralympics Games to be held in 2020 are Madrid, Tokyo and İstanbul.

Should İstanbul be selected, it will be the first time in history that the Olympic Games will be organized by a Muslim-majority country.

Although he apologized on Tuesday for his “inappropriate” comments about rival candidate İstanbul and Islamic countries, his remarks sparked a serious debate in Turkey.

“His remarks are totally alienating a society for its religion. This is religious discrimination. His remarks are enough for Tokyo not to be selected for the Olympics. The International Olympic Committee [IOC] should not select Tokyo after the governor’s remarks,” said Cengiz.

Turkey’s Youth and Sports Minister Suat Kılıç also said that the remarks of the governor were “unfair and disheartening” and did not comply with the spirit of the values of the Olympic movement.

The governor’s comments appear to break the IOC’s rules, particularly Rule 14, which prevents candidate cities from commenting on their rivals.

“For the athletes, where will be the best place to be? Well, compare the two countries where they have yet to build infrastructure, very sophisticated facilities,” said Inose.

The governor’s remarks about İstanbul could lead Tokyo to face a reprimand from the IOC Ethics Commission.

“It’s very disappointing. We have never been critical of the other cities and we are not about to start. İstanbul is also bidding for 2020. However, we have not made any negative statements about the other candidate cities and we will not do so. We love Japanese people. We respect their beliefs and their culture,” said Kılıç on Twitter, accusing Inose of violating the Olympic spirit.

The chairman of the Felicity Party (SP), Mustafa Kamalak, also stated that the remarks of the governor were incompatible with sports ethics and the peaceful nature of Japanese people. “Associating Islam with fighting is unfair towards the religion as well as towards humanity. ‘Muslims are fighting with each other and the Olympics should not be hosted in İstanbul’ is an argument which does not comply with the spirit of Islam and with the language of the Japanese people,” Kamalak told Today’s Zaman.

Tokyo shoots itself in foot with governor’s remarks

While the governor’s remarks have prompted the IOC to investigate, it also sparked concern in Tokyo that it might affect the Japanese capital’s bid for the Olympics.

“Indeed, Tokyo has shot itself in the foot with the remarks of the governor. His remarks are totally Islamophobic and it would be appropriate if Tokyo is not selected to host the games by the IOC. I hope this incident would be a plus point for Turkey in this competition,” Ayhan Kaya, the director of the European Institute at Bilgi University in İstanbul, told Today’s Zaman.

All the three candidate cities went through a detailed inspection by the Evaluation Commission of the IOC in March, with Tokyo being inspected first at the beginning of the month, Madrid in mid-month and İstanbul at the end of March.

Now, the three countries are waiting for the IOC to announce the host city in September at the next IOC Session in Argentina.

Tokyo has yet to respond to an email from the authority enquiring about the meaning of the remarks, a spokesman for Tokyo’s bid for the 2020 Olympics said.

The organizers of Tokyo’s bid for the Olympics also repeated their commitment to the IOC’s rules on Monday after the governor of the capital was quoted making critical comments about rival candidate İstanbul.

Inose had also stated that Turkey doesn’t have an advantage because of its large population of youths over Japan’s relatively aging society, adding that if the Turkish people want to live longer, they should imitate Japan’s culture.

“There might be a lot of young people, but if they die young, it doesn’t mean much,” he was quoted as saying.

Inose is said to be more moderate than his nationalist predecessor, Shintaro Ishihara. However, Turkish analysts believe that Inose is also among the nationalist line which is dominant in Japanese society.

“The Japanese state has for several years argued that it has a homogeneous society. A nationalist language is very dominant in Japan. Therefore, it is not surprising to hear such Islamophobic and racist remarks from a Japanese governor,” said Kaya.

While apologizing for his remarks, Inose accepted that the New York Times story was correct, adding that he would not seek a correction from the paper.

“I apologize. My remarks caused misunderstandings among people from Muslim countries, so I would like to unequivocally apologize,” Inose said on Tuesday, adding that it was a “good experience” and he now understood where the “lines are drawn.”
