I don't get what he has done wrong? Did the judge reveal too much information in their tweets? Is there a law against something like that?

Been using pay pay for about a year and a half now. They still offer 30% cash backs from time to time. Totally worth it. I've saved 24,797 yen so far according to the app.

You will be eating your words the day you get falsely accused by Japanese police for a crime you didn't commit. Held in prison and not allowed bail until you confess. Guilty till proven innocent, eh? Too bad for people like you who lack empathy, they only "get it" when it happens to them.

This time even the Arabs inside Israel protested

I really thought they have been broken into submission over the 70 odd years, but they couldn't keep silent anymore. Fear didn't stop them. retaliation by the Zionist Apartheid Regime is happening now as we speak. Thousands of Palestinians are being arrested in Israel for going against their masters.

Posted in: Israel-Hamas ceasefire holds; U.N. to launch Gaza aid appeal See in context

1200 Palestinians with Israeli citizenship living in Insrael have been arrested since May 12th. They announced 500 more will be arrested in the next 48 hours for protesting in the past few weeks. This is how they provoke unrest. This is not shown on mainstream media. They will kick doors down and take these young folks to jail for speaking against Apartheid. Please do some research and check these facts. Palestinians inside Israel that account for 20% of the population also need your voice. It's not just the Palestinians in the occupied territories.

Posted in: Hamas defiant with military parade, appearance of top leader See in context

Hamas Hamas Hamas. War crimes against humanity towards Palestinians have been going on long long before 2007 when Hamas came into power. What excuse did the Zionist entity spew before then. What was the excuse in the 90's in the 80's in the 70's? What about the 60's. And all the way back to the early 1900. Always an excuse. Israel is an occupation force. The Israeli Occupying Forces (IOF) no matter how much the Zionists will try to twist it around, the facts are, Palestinians all over Palestine, and not just Gaza, are RESISTING cruel inhumane occupation by the Zionist Colonizer. Resistance is futile is what Israel (aka the both) tried so hard to convince the Palestinians and the world, but we still RESIST!!. Zionism will fall. And it will be the Jews from all over the world that will have a huge role in toppling Israeli politics and government.

Israel is part of Palestine

@Commodore As of 1948, then yes. But, Go to your local library in any part of the world and ask for historical maps of the world. Any map before 1948. Tell me which name you see, Palestine or Israel? Palestine was Colonized by the Zionists and called it Israel as we all know. Before that, Palestine was colonized by the Brits (but the name Palestine was not erased) and by the Ottmans before that etc (also the name Palestine was not erased). Even then, during Muslim rule for 1400 years, Jews, Christians, and Muslims of Palestine, lived peacefully amongst themselves. Then came the Zionists. Look at Palestine now! You dont need to be a rocket scientist to figure out who the aggressors are. Apartheid needs to end for peace to thrive. End the occupation. Return the land. Apologize for all the deaths, pain, and heartache caused over the past 70 years.

Posted in: Israel's Netanyahu determined to continue Gaza operation See in context

@bass4funk by your argument, the West Bank, should be free already. Tiny Gaza and Hamas represent a tiny fraction/section of Palestine. Zionist Israel does not want peace. They want to cleanse the Palestinians of their land. Surely you have seen the map of Palestine/Israel from 1948-2021. You can clearly see how the constant/continuous settlement expansion over the 70 odd years has almost left them with no land. this is always about settlement expansion. stealing more land. ethnic cleansing. nothing more, nothing less.

Posted in: Israel's Netanyahu determined to continue Gaza operation See in context


War crimes against humanity towards the Palestinians, have been going on LONG LONG before Hamas. Hamas came into power in 2007 BECAUSE of the Israelies Apartheid regime. The indigenous people of Palestine have the right to resist occupation by the colonizers (the zionists from the UK) by international law. The colonizers have imprisoned gaza, population of over 2 million, of which 40% are under 16 years of age, as collective punishment. Let that sink in. Israel only allows 4 hours of electricity a day for the past 15 years! (has been completely cut off as of yesterday) let that sink in. THESE prison guards are just inhumane. Period. Lets not talk about the food shortages, clean water, sewage, etc. Read about how this open air prison has been surviving for almost 15 years.

In Japan its a common insult/swear word to tell someone to die. This needs to stop. Teachers and parents need to teach their young about this word. I used to teach with a young Japanese teacher at an elementary school and would scold her students and explain to them why its so bad to tell someone to die. This teachers sister took her own life.

In the local news here in shikoku, there's a bust every other month. The demand is here. Lots of secretive citizens of Japan partake in it. You just dont see it in public. Cant wait for the medicinal form of it. I prefer digesting it anyway. It Feels like you are taking a long hot bath when you eat it. so relaxing.

Jews in Israel and around the world are breaking their silence and aren't afraid to speak their truth even if they will be labeled anti-semitic by the Zionists. Go on Instagram and search jewish for peace posts. Search for Palestine and watch the heartbreaking videos and pics that the mainstream media is avoiding. The truth is out there. There's no more hiding for Zionist Israel. Rest in peace people of Palestine. You will be free one day!

Posted in: Israeli strike on Gaza kills 10; unrest spreads to West Bank See in context

"My ancestors and family in Palestine deserve the right for their history to be told without any obstruction or lies," said Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI).

"They have a right to be able to explain to the world that they are still suffering from Nakba, when the world watched with no intervention."

Nakba, or "catastrophe, is when over 750,000 Palestinians were forcefully displaced and expelled from their homes by the Israeli Zionist government from 1947 to 1949, creating the worlds largest refugee humanitarian crisis in the world.

Millions of Palestinians refugees still reside in refugee camps across Gaza, Jerusalem, West Bank, and in Lebanon, Jordan, and Syria clinging on the right of return to their homes and cities, a right Israel denies.

Around 15,000 Palestinians died in a series of attacks, including at least 70 massacres that erased entire neighborhoods and towns.

Follow cravingpalestine / jewishvoiceforpeace / on Instagram, for another side the western media does not show. Watch cellphone vid and images from Palestinians in Palestine and Israel as the crises continues.

@Toshihiro...i believe in Japan it is shameful for someone to ask for help. It is also Shameful for someone to burden others. Thats is why in Japan we read about such horrors. The culture needs to change. This mother will never burden a relative or a stranger with the responsibility of raising her child. Children in Japan need to start learning how to ask for help and assistance from a young age, so when they grow up, it becomes part of a normal healthy life. Shame on Japan for ignoring these social issues and just sweeping them under the carpet.

In Tokushima, solar panels can only be installed on residential land. So some rice fields have already been converted into residential land for that purpose. I guess aging farmers who arent able to find someone to take over, have no other choice but to do that (if they can afford it).

Posted in: Asthma drug budesonide speeds recovery for at-home COVID-19 patients See in context

I have slight asthma. At the beginning of this pandemic, I went to my doctor to restock on old inhalers, just in case I need to self-medicate, in the case of a slow response to treatment by the health center. I guess I had the right idea! A private 1 on 1 student of mine at a juku tested positive on Thursday. I had taught her on Tuesday and received the phone call on Friday from my manager. The health center did not contact me directly and left this responsibility on my manager. He tells me that the hokken-jo (health center?) will contact me if needed. Forgot that! I have my wife call. They tell us that my student's family needs to get tested first, but that won't be till Saturday. If they test positive, then they will call me on Monday so I can set up an appointment for a test. In the meantime, I have to self-quarantine and hope for the best. BUT if I choose to pay, I can go to a nearby clinic. I wonder what most would do? Well, I started taking my asthma medication and tried booking an appointment for the first available slot. Called the nearest few clinics that offer to test, but testing isn't available on weekends!! My wife called around and found a prefectural testing center in the city, that is open on weekends, but the first available slot isn't till today, a Sunday. I'm now waiting anxiously for my time to arrive. Had a fever of 37.5 yesterday but it kept fluctuating up and down. Had a headache all day too.

Posted in: Unmarked police cars in Japan use Transformer-style trick when they pull someone over See in context

Where I live in Shikoku, the police only come out to set up traps around railway crossings to catch people that dont make a full stop. The rest of the time you see kids standing in the passenger seats/on daddys lap while driving/grandma holding child etc etc on the daily, especially when i drop off my child at his kindergaten. People using smartphones while driving, all day ever day. Burnt-out headlights/break lights. running red lights. and the list goes on and on. But, lets set up a trap to catch those that dont make a full stop at the railway crossing, at the same place, once a month. GREAT JOB COPPERS!
