“… a date that shall live in infamy . . .”

I realize that there are plenty of people out there who appreciate the US Military, and the veterans who served in it.  Thank you!

These images are why those of you who don’t appreciate the military should be grateful that people like me have been wearing uniforms in the service of the USA for 238 years.  We, the service members and veterans, stand between you and countries (or radical terrorists) that want to kill you.  We have done this so you can live free, even if you can’t appreciate our choice.  Without the uniformed services and veterans of this country, there would be no USA – and you’d likely be speaking German.  73 years ago today, we protected you and your families from this . . .Japanese Torpedo plane taking off h50603torpedo planes attacking battleship row - h50931USS Utah - g266626USS Arizona forward magazines explode - k13513USS Maryland and capsized USS Oklahoma - g19930tthe date that shall live in infamy - h72273kOn 07 Dec 1941, at 0748 Hawaii Time, the Imperial Japanese Navy attacked the US Navy fleet anchored at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.  Keep in mind that, at that time, Hawaii was still an independent nation that was renting space to the US, and wouldn’t become our 50th state for another 10 years.

Muslims in Japan?

Japan is a country keeping Islam at bay by putting strict restrictions on Islam and ALL Muslims.

1) Japan is the only nation that does not give citizenship to Muslims.

2) In Japan permanent residency is not given to Muslims.

3) There is a strong ban on the propagation of Islam in Japan .

4) In the University of Japan, Arabic or any Islamic language is not taught.

5) One cannot import a ‘Koran’ published in the Arabic language.

6) According to data published by the Japanese government, it has given temporary residency to only 2 lakhs, Muslims, who must follow the Japanese Law of the Land. These Muslims should speak Japanese and carry their religious rituals in their homes.

7) Japan is the only country in the world that has a negligible number of embassies in Islamic countries.

8) Muslims residing in Japan are the employees of foreign companies.

9) Even today, visas are not granted to Muslim doctors, engineers or managers sent by foreign companies.

10) In the majority of companies it is stated in their regulations that no Muslims should apply for a job.

11) The Japanese government is of the opinion that Muslims are fundamentalist, and even in the era of globalization they are not willing to change their Muslim laws.

12) Muslims cannot even rent a house in Japan .

13) If anyone comes to know that his neighbor is a Muslim then the whole neighborhood stays alert.

14) No one can start an Islamic cell or Arabic ‘Madrasa’ in Japan .

15) There is no Sharia law in Japan .

16) If a Japanese woman marries a Muslim, she is considered an outcast forever.

17) According to Mr. Kumiko Yagi, Professor of Arab/Islamic Studies at Tokyo University of Foreign Studies, “There is a mind frame in Japan that Islam is a very narrow minded religion and one should stay away from it.

The Japanese might have lost the war, but they are certainly in charge of their own country.
You will note that there are no bombs going off in crowded business centers, no “Honor Killings”, nor the killing of innocent children or anyone else in Japan .

Something to think about.

Especially when you contrast that with the United States, where Islam is a protected religion, and there are now enough Muslims living in Michigan and Wisconsin that they are appealing to throw off the “shackles” of local and US law in favor of living under Sharia law.
