Japan Japan: some interesting facts

Comment: This showed up in an email forwarded by a relative. I doubt its
voracity, but don't have the data to refute its claims. Clearly some of
this is wishful thinking (Cell phone usage in trains is rampant, not
forbidden) and the comments at the end about Islam almost seem to
represent the Tokugawa perspective towards Christians.


Hi: Perhaps we have something to learn from Japan

* In just ten years Hiroshima returned to what it was economically
vibrant before the fall of the atomic bomb.

* Japan prevents the use of mobile phones in trains, restaurants and

* For first to sixth primary year Japanese students must learn ethics in
dealing with people.

* Even though one of the richest people in the world, the Japanese do not
have servants. The parents are responsible for the house and children.

* There is no examination from the first to the third primary level
because the goal of education is to instill concepts and character

* If you go to a buffet restaurant in Japan you will notice people only
eat as much as they need without any waste because food must not be

* The rate of delayed trains in Japan is about 7 seconds per year! The
Japanese appreciate the value of time and are very punctual to minutes and

* Children in schools brush their teeth (sterile) and clean their teeth
after a meal at school, teaching them to maintain their health from an
early age.

* Japanese students take half an hour to finish their meals to ensure
proper digestion because these students are the future of Japan.

The Japanese focus on maintaining their culture. Therefore,

* No political leader or a prime minister from an Islamic nation has
visited Japan, not the Ayatollah of Iran, the King of Saudi Arabia or even
a Saudi Prince!

* 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
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
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 in charge of their own
country. There are no bombs going off in crowded business centers, "Honor
Killings", nor killing of innocent children or anyone else.

Something to think about......
