Sankei Shimbun ran an Ad for books which describe “a conspiracy by the Jewish-controlled U.S.”
From the WSJ report:
The books that are the subject of the advertisements are authored by Richard Koshimizu, a self-claimed freelance journalist. In one book, he argues that the 2011 Tohoku earthquake was set off by a U.S. military bomb, while another says the Holocaust was a myth spread by the Soviet Union. A third book claims the election of Mr. Abe’s government in 2012 was part of a Jewish plan for global domination.
Could find some of Richard Koshimizu’s books on Amazon, but not the controversial ones.
The following is an image from his Facebook page:
It is not my first time to encounter Jewish conspiracy stories and books. I still hope that there are very few people who actually believe this stuff.
Although most of my work is Technical, discussing Technical details with extremely Technical people, I am sometimes surprised by the Power of Hype.
It is not about the latest SmartPhone or gadget, but it is sometimes about latest Technology trends. Even when there is not much behind it, I notice it is being discussed and considered because “people talk about it”.
One thing that I can’t do is “object the Hype”. I can explain it, talk about it, but I can’t say “this is Hype”, because I will be considered “uninformed” (or maybe “not cool”)
“Big Bad Wolves” , in Japanese “オオカミは嘘をつく” is playing in selected theaters in Japan.
Interesting enough, the Japanese title is slightly different from the English title which is also different from the Hebrew one. In Hebrew, the literal translation is “Who is afraid of the big bad wolf” . In Japanese, “Wolves lie” .
It is very rare for an Israeli film to play in Japanese theaters.So, it is either a good one, or a very political one.
In this case, a good one. A film which received good reviews in several film festival including a quote form Quentin Tarantino calling it “the best film of 2013”.
A bit on the horror side, a bit on the funny side (which does not translate well to Japanese), highly recommended thriller.
Update: It seems that I passed the 7GB limit which made softbank throttle my access. FIRST time it happened to me. I was sure I had unlimited access. Guess who is going to switch service provide when he can ?
I am using Softbank Ultra Wifi 4G for over a year with no problem, but I feel it behaves quite bad recently.
I can hardly connect my outlook to the exchange , having problems accessing the web in locations it used to work.
Is it Yosemite or Softbank problem ?
