「日本人はサル」はOK 「韓国人はゴキブリ」は不可 ヘイトスピーチ規制法

「韓国人はゴキブリ」はヘイトスピーチで違法だが、「日本人はサル」はヘイトスピーチに分類されず合法です。

日本のヘイトスピーチ規制法の保護対象は外国人や外国にルーツを持つ人に限定されます。生粋の日本人は保護の対象外です。

日本の法務省は、「(3)特定の国や地域の出身である人を,著しく見下すような内容のもの(特定の国の出身者を,差別的な意味合いで昆虫や動物に例えるものなど) 」と動物になぞらえる行為を明示的に禁止していますが、この規則は「生粋の日本人だけには適用されない」のです。

法務省に苦情を申し入れたい方は、こちらへ
法律を作ったのは自民党(の特に安倍さん)ですから、こちらもお忘れなく。



こじつけ? 韓国人が日本人を「サル」と呼ぶ理由

 実は今、韓国で日本人は「サル」と暗に、時に公然と揶揄されている。

 2011年、サッカーのアジアカップ準決勝の日韓戦でゴールを決めた韓国の奇誠庸(キ・ソンヨン)選手がカメラの前で左手で顔をかく「サルのまね」をしたのは記憶に新しい。

 非難された彼は、「(所属するスコットランドのチームで試合中)相手チームのファンからサルの鳴き声で馬鹿にされたことがある。その連中に向けてやったことだ」と弁明したが、翌年になると「旭日旗を見て思わず(カッとなって)やった」と発言を翻した(「スタンドに旭日旗はなかった」との指摘も多い)。

 この1月4日、朴槿恵(パク・クネ)氏の大統領当選を受け首相特使として派遣された額賀福志郎元財務相への抗議で、ソウルの金浦(キムポ)空港に押し掛けた右翼活動家らが掲げたのが、日の丸とサルを描いた布だった。

 それにしても、なぜ「サル」なのか?ある韓国人女性の話はこうだ。

「韓国にはサルが生息しておらず、動物園で見るくらい。でも日本にはニホンザルが昔からいて、温泉につかった面白い映像は韓国でもよく知られている。ニホンザルは体が小さく、日本人も体格が全体的に韓国人より小さい。だから日本人イコール、サルとなったみたい」

 実は、日本人がサル呼ばわりされ始めたのは最近のことではない。少なくとも05年にはネット上で相当にあげつらわれていたようだ。05年8月の韓国大手紙にはすでに「なぜ日本人をサルと呼ぶのか?」と題した記事が掲載されている。

 記事によると、ある韓国人ネットユーザーが、なぜ日本人をサルと呼ぶのか、ネットで質問をしてみた。返ってきた回答のうち、サルそのものと直接結びつけたものでは、

「サルは尻が赤いだろ。尻の赤い様子が日本の国旗と似ているからじゃないの?」
「日本の奴らはひっきりなしにサルみたいに騒ぎ、調子に乗るので、そう呼ばれているんじゃないか?」
「日本人は顔がサルに似ているから」(注・日本芸能界で活躍する美人タレントの多くがコリア系と韓国人は思っているフシもある)

 とても愉快とは言えない、相当なこじつけが目立つ。

「あいトレ炎上」との報に接した時の津田監督について(実行委員会委員長である)岡本氏はこう明かした。

「驚くべき言葉を言われてびっくりした。津田さんは、これだけの騒ぎになってトレンドになって全国ニュースに流れている。議論を喚起する(不自由展の)目的はある程度達した、として私たちに伝えた。私たちは表現者と鑑賞者の交流を作ることを目指してきました。話題になったから目的を達したと言われた時はメモをとる手も震えるほどショックだった。そして津田さんがフェイスブックで“ みんな表現の自由の話をしている。こんなことは初めてだ。映画の中にいるみたい ”と言ったこともショックでした」

サウジ石油施設爆破事件その後

ドローンであれ巡航ミサイルであれ、もしイラン発の攻撃だとすれば、高価な米国製装備がそれを全く探知できず、大きな被害を出したことは、米国製兵器に対する信用が地に落ちることを意味する。平時にこれだけの被害を出すのだから、もし本当の戦争が勃発して相互に撃ち合いをしたら、どれほど甚大な被害をもたらすことになるのか。

サウジの防空システムは対イランを想定して設計されているので、イエメン方向からの探知能力は低い。しかし、サウジがそのように発表したら、サウジが主導してきた対イエメン戦の戦果が芳しくない事実も合わせ、サウジ外交が破綻したことを世界に認めることになる。

サウジ奥深くを攻撃できる能力を備えたイエメンのフーシーは、サウジ東部の油田地帯に多いシーア派住民の自然な同盟相手になる。その先に見えるものはサウジ解体である。

Accepting Houthi Responsibility for Saudi Oil Attack Means Admitting Riyadh’s War in Yemen Failed

https://sputniknews.com/analysis/201909201076843679-accepting-houthi-responsibility-for-saudi-oil-attack-means-admitting-riyadhs-war-in-yemen-failed/

The US and Saudis are so intent on pointing the finger at Iran for the oil facility strikes because admitting the Houthis could hurt the kingdom so badly after five years of war in Yemen means facing the war’s complete failure, an expert told Sputnik. However, if they do attack Iran, Foreign Minister Javad Zarif has promised it’ll be “all-out war.”

Saudi intelligence claimed on Wednesday to present proof that Tehran was behind the Saturday air attack that damaged two Saudi Aramco oil facilities in Eastern Province and halved the country’s oil production temporarily. However, the proof was little more than burned drone frames, and Tehran demanded firmer evidence. That hasn’t stopped Washington diplomats like US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who has been adamant it was Tehran’s doing and that the US would respond in kind.

In an interview with CNN’s Nick Patton Walsh on Thursday, Zarif said Iran’s response to an attack now wouldn’t be half-hearted.

​“I make a very serious statement about defending our country,” the foreign minister said. “I’m making a very serious statement that we don’t want war, we don’t want to engage in a military confrontation. We believe that a military confrontation based on deception is awful. We’ll have a lot of casualties, but we won’t blink to defend our territory.”

“They want to put the blame on Iran for something, and that is why I’m saying this is agitation for war,” Zarif continued, noting the Yemeni Houthis had claimed responsibility for the attack despite US insistence it was Iran’s doing.

“You believe that the United States is omnipotent and the United States’ military equipment are flawless, and that is why a bunch of people with no access to anything cannot defeat that. Well I’m going to tell you: it’s going to be news for you, and it’s going to continue to be news for you that people can do a lot of things when they are desperate … that gives you a lot of creativity, a lot of tenacity,” Zarif said, defending the ability of the Houthis to carry out the attack. However, he noted he had no proof the Houthis were responsible aside from their statement, merely that he was sure Iran wasn’t.

Massoud Shadjareh, founder of the Islamic Human Rights Commission, told Radio Sputnik’s Loud and Clear Thursday that the US and Saudi Arabia have been “in a corner” for a long time as a result of the unwinnability of the Saudi-led coalition’s war in Yemen.

“There is really no military solution” to the war in Yemen, which has raged since March 2015, when ousted Yemeni President Abdrabbuh Mansur Hadi fled the country to Riyadh and requested Saudi assistance in kicking out the Houthi government that had come to power the previous September.

“They throw everything at it for the last four-and-a-half years, and the result has been further death, further destruction, further ordinary, innocent lives being … destroyed, and not moving forward even an inch,” Shadjareh told hosts Brian Becker and John Kiriakou. “Therefore, it’s really obvious to everyone that the only solution is a political solution, and they’re not willing to have a political solution.”

“What has resulted, when we saw this attack on Saturday, there was only one way that the US and Saudi Arabia could go, is to blame Iran, there is no other alternatives for that. No matter who did it they would have blamed Iran, because they need to get out of this hellhole they have created for themselves,” Shadjareh said. “But I think by blaming Iran, they’re not really finding a way out, they’re actually digging themselves further into a hellhole.”

“If we don’t find a solution to this, if we don’t find a way to resolve not just this rhetoric that has been going on for the last few days in media … then we are going to, by default, come closer to a horrible war that, by its definition, cannot be limited to anything. It’s going to be all-out,” Shadjareh warned.

“The calculation is, doesn’t matter who’s done it, the Saudis have shown that they are not capable of defending themselves and they’re not immune from a limited, an extremely limited, attack. This extremely limited attack has actually affected their output in a way that never happened before in their whole history,” Shadjareh said. “What would happen if there is a real war?”

“I think the international community, and indeed, the United States, both of the houses [of Congress], need to get involved, because Trump’s policy is totally bankrupt. Trump’s policy will not only destroy people in the Middle East and bring more death and destruction, but it will actually bring suffering to people in the United States,” Shadjareh told Sputnik. “From what I’m seeing, it really is a fool trying to play a game which already is seen to be totally bankrupt, and it will not get anywhere.”



How The Houthis Overturned The Chessboard

The Yemeni Shiite group’s spectacular attack on Abqaiq raises the distinct possibility of a push to drive the House of Saud from power

We are the Houthis and we’re coming to town. With the spectacular attack on Abqaiq, Yemen’s Houthis have overturned the geopolitical chessboard in Southwest Asia – going as far as introducing a whole new dimension: the distinct possibility of investing in a push to drive the House of Saud out of power.

Blowback is a bitch. Houthis – Zaidi Shiites from northern Yemen – and Wahhabis have been at each other’s throats for ages. This book is absolutely essential to understand the mind-boggling complexity of Houthi tribes; as a bonus, it places the turmoil in southern Arabian lands way beyond a mere Iran-Saudi proxy war.

Still, it’s always important to consider that Arab Shiites in the Eastern province – working in Saudi oil installations – have got to be natural allies of the Houthis fighting against Riyadh.

Houthi striking capability – from drone swarms to ballistic missile attacks – has been improving remarkably for the past year or so. It’s not by accident that the UAE saw which way the geopolitical and geoeconomic winds were blowing: Abu Dhabi withdrew from Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman’s vicious war against Yemen and now is engaged in what it describes as a “peace-first” strategy.

Even before Abqaiq, the Houthis had already engineered quite a few attacks against Saudi oil installations as well as Dubai and Abu Dhabi airports. In early July, Yemen’s Operations Command Center staged an exhibition in full regalia in Sana’a featuring their whole range of ballistic and winged missiles and drones.

The Saudi Ministry of Defense displays drones and parts from missiles used in the refinery attack.

The situation has now reached a point where there’s plenty of chatter across the Persian Gulf about a spectacular scenario: the Houthis investing in a mad dash across the Arabian desert to capture Mecca and Medina in conjunction with a mass Shiite uprising in the Eastern oil belt. That’s not far-fetched anymore. Stranger things have happened in the Middle East. After all, the Saudis can’t even win a bar brawl – that’s why they rely on mercenaries.

Orientalism strikes again

The US intel refrain that the Houthis are incapable of such a sophisticated attack betrays the worst strands of orientalism and white man’s burden/superiority complex.

The only missile parts shown by the Saudis so far come from a Yemeni Quds 1 cruise missile. According to Brigadier General Yahya Saree, spokesman for the Sana’a-based Yemeni Armed Forces, “the Quds system proved its great ability to hit its targets and to bypass enemy interceptor systems.”

This satellite overview handout image from the US government shows damage to oil/gas infrastructure from weekend drone attacks at Abqaiq.

Houthi armed forces duly claimed responsibility for Abqaiq: “This operation is one of the largest operations carried out by our forces in the depth of Saudi Arabia, and came after an accurate intelligence operation and advance monitoring and cooperation of honorable and free men within the Kingdom.”

Notice the key concept: “cooperation” from inside Saudi Arabia – which could include the whole spectrum from Yemenis to that Eastern province Shiites.

Even more relevant is the fact that massive American hardware deployed in Saudi Arabia inside out and outside in – satellites, AWACS, Patriot missiles, drones, battleships, jet fighters – didn’t see a thing, or certainly not in time. The sighting of three “loitering” drones by a Kuwaiti bird hunter arguably heading towards Saudi Arabia is being invoked as “evidence”. Cue to the embarrassing picture of a drone swarm – wherever it came from – flying undisturbed for hours over Saudi territory.

UN officials openly admit that now everything that matters is within the 1,500 km range of the Houthis’ new UAV-X drone: oil fields in Saudi Arabia, a still-under-construction nuclear power plant in the Emirates and Dubai’s mega-airport.

My conversations with sources in Tehran over the past two years have ascertained that the Houthis’ new drones and missiles are essentially copies of Iranian designs assembled in Yemen itself with crucial help from Hezbollah engineers.

US intel insists that 17 drones and cruise missiles were launched in combination from southern Iran. In theory, Patriot radar would have picked that up and knocked the drones/missiles from the sky. So far, absolutely no record of this trajectory has been revealed. Military experts generally agree that the radar on the Patriot missile is good, but its success rate is “disputed” – to say the least. What’s important, once again, is that the Houthis do have advanced offensive missiles. And their pinpoint accuracy at Abqaiq was uncanny.

For now, it appears that the winner of the US/UK-supported House of One Saudi war on the civilian Yemeni population, which started in March 2015 and generated a humanitarian crisis the UN regards as having been of biblical proportions, is certainly not the crown prince, widely known as MBS.

Listen to the general

Crude oil stabilization towers – several of them – at Abqaiq were specifically targeted, along with natural gas storage tanks. Persian Gulf energy sources have been telling me repairs and/or rebuilding could last months. Even Riyadh admitted as much.

Blindly blaming Iran, with no evidence, does not cut it. Tehran can count on swarms of top strategic thinkers. They do not need or want to blow up Southwest Asia, which is something they could do, by the way: Revolutionary Guards generals have already said many times on the record that they are ready for war.

Professor Mohammad Marandi from the University of Tehran, who has very close relations with the Foreign Ministry, is adamant: “It didn’t come from Iran. If it did, it would be very embarrassing for the Americans, showing they are unable to detect a large number of Iranian drones and missiles. That doesn’t make sense.”

Marandi additionally stresses, “Saudi air defenses are not equipped to defend the country from Yemen but from Iran. The Yemenis have been striking against the Saudis, they are getting better and better, developing drone and missile technology for four and a half years, and this was a very soft target.”

A soft – and unprotected – target: the US PAC-2 and PAC-3 systems in place are all oriented towards the east, in the direction of Iran. Neither Washington nor Riyadh knows for sure where the drone swarm/missiles really came from.

Readers should pay close attention to this groundbreaking interview with General Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the commander of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Aerospace Force. The interview, in Farsi (with English subtitles), was conducted by US-sanctioned Iranian intellectual Nader Talebzadeh and includes questions forwarded by my US analyst friends Phil Giraldi and Michael Maloof and myself.

Explaining Iranian self-sufficiency in its defense capabilities, Hajizadeh sounds like a very rational actor. The bottom line:

“Our view is that neither American politicians nor our officials want a war. If an incident like the one with the drone [the RQ-4N shot down by Iran in June] happens or a misunderstanding happens, and that develops into a larger war, that’s a different matter. Therefore we are always ready for a big war.”

In response to one of my questions, on what message the Revolutionary Guards want to convey, especially to the US, Hajizadeh does not mince his words: “In addition to the US bases in various regions like Afghanistan, Iraq, Kuwait, Emirates and Qatar, we have targeted all naval vessels up to a distance of 2,000 kilometers and we are constantly monitoring them. They think that if they go to a distance of 400 km, they are out of our firing range. Wherever they are, it only takes one spark, we hit their vessels, their airbases, their troops.”

Get your S-400s or else

On the energy front, Tehran has been playing a very precise game under pressure – selling loads of oil by turning off the transponders of their tankers as they leave Iran and transferring the oil at sea, tanker to tanker, at night, and relabeling their cargo as originating at other producers for a price. I have been checking this for weeks with my trusted Persian Gulf traders – and they all confirm it. Iran could go on doing it forever.

Of course, the Trump administration knows it. But the fact is they are looking the other way. To state it as concisely as possible: they are caught in a trap by the absolute folly of ditching the JCPOA, and they are looking for a face-saving way out. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has warned the administration in so many words: the US should return to the agreement it reneged on before it’s too late.

And now for the really hair-raising part.

The strike at Abqaiq shows that the entire Middle East production of over 18 million barrels of oil a day – including Kuwait, Qatar, United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia – can be easily knocked out. There is zero adequate defense against these drones and missiles.

Well, there’s always Russia.

Here’s what happened at the press conference after the Ankara summit this week on Syria, uniting Presidents Putin, Rouhani and Erdogan.

Question: Will Russia provide Saudi Arabia with any help or support in restoring its infrastructure?

President Putin: As for assisting Saudi Arabia, it is also written in the Quran that violence of any kind is illegitimate except when protecting one’s people. In order to protect them and the country, we are ready to provide the necessary assistance to Saudi Arabia. All the political leaders of Saudi Arabia have to do is take a wise decision, as Iran did by buying the S-300 missile system, and as President Recep Tayyip Erdogan did when he bought Russia’s latest S-400 Triumph anti-aircraft system. They would offer reliable protection for any Saudi infrastructure facilities.

President Hassan Rouhani: So do they need to buy the S-300 or the S-400?

President Vladimir Putin: It is up to them to decide [laughs].

In The Transformation of War, Martin van Creveld actually predicted that the whole industrial-military-security complex would come crumbling down when it was exposed that most of its weapons are useless against fourth-generation asymmetrical opponents. There’s no question the whole Global South is watching – and will have gotten the message.

Hybrid war, reloaded

Now we are entering a whole new dimension in asymmetric hybrid war.

In the – horrendous – event that Washington would decide to attack Iran, egged on by the usual neocon suspects, the Pentagon could never hope to hit and disable all the Iranian and/or Yemeni drones. The US could expect, for sure, all-out war. And then no ships would sail through the Strait of Hormuz. We all know the consequences of that.

Which brings us to The Big Surprise. The real reason there would be no ships traversing the Strait of Hormuz is that there would be no oil in the Gulf left to pump. The oil fields, having been bombed, would be burning.

So we’re back to the realistic bottom line, which has been stressed by not only Moscow and Beijing but also Paris and Berlin: US President Donald Trump gambled big time, and he lost. Now he must find a face-saving way out. If the War Party allows it.
