    I think the re-naming is stupid, because every single drug that affects the brain is "dangerous" when combined with a vehicle. E.g. I take antihistamin pills when I have hayfeber. It is a normal over-the-counter drug, but it makes me drowsy so of course I don´t drive in that situation. Does that mean that antihistamins are now "dangerous drugs"? Silly!

    Just make sure that everybody understand that driving under the influence of anything is not accepted, period.

    No aircraft is completely safe. This just sounds like political posturing.

    Hate-speech is certainly wrong, but the idea of having the UN administer it is even worse. Japan should tell those people to take a hike.

    Posted in: Japan should prohibit all propaganda advocating racial superiority or hatred that incites to discrimination, hostility or violence as well as demonstrations intended to disseminate such propaganda.

    John Galt:

    " Any physical description of the thugs? "

    My impression of the US media standard is that if the perps were white, it would have been mentioned immediately. Not that I follow every single crime story, but that seems to be the consistent pattern. Not?

    That Hamas agrees to the ceasefire simply means they are running short of rockets, and still undiscovered tunnels. Easy predition: In a days, someone will "broker" a permanent ceasefire, which Hamas will use to re-arm and re-attack the Israeli population within a month or so.

    Good job by the girl to scream, run, and inform the teachers.

    I am confident the hit on the school was not intentional. The last thing Israel wants is more bad press. However, a question that nobody seems to address, is why does Hamas get away with using the UNRWA schools as weapons storages, without anybody making an issue of it? A school that functions as a rocket storage site, is that still strictly a school?

    Christopher Gunnes, UNRWA PR director, writes: “UNRWA strongly condemns the group or groups responsible for placing the weapons in one of its installations”. Well, fine. So he condemns. But they still passed the weapons so Hamas, which in turn fired them on Israel. So what is Israel to do?? Sit still and take the rocket fire, since Hamas hides their weapons caches in UN schools?

    None of the Hamas defenders here addresses that.

    " It's time this comfort women issue is nipped in the bud. "

    But it will NEVER be nipped in the bud, because Korea and China need the issue for political purposes. No matter what Japan does, they will keep demanding more. Count on it.

    Does the article say how many of those who "signed up" have actually paid into the scheme? I think the old motto holds: Never trust a statistic that you did not fake yourself...

    Wow, what a week for air travel! Malaysia Air, then Taiwan, then this.... in the event, in this case, considering the area, I strongly suspect that the Mali jihadis got their hands on missiles plundered from Gaddafis arsenal (which since then have been flooding to militants all over the region).

    He took himself off the street to get arrested. I wish all DUI drivers would do that!

    Japonaise:

    " While Hamas chooses the "right" path by using 800,000 tons of concrete and billions in aid to build terror tunnels, bunkers, launching pads for missliles and buys weapons instead of using it to improve the lives of ordinary Palestinians in Gaza. "

    ....and placing the bunker entrances and weapons launch sites as close to civilian centers as possible, using its population as human shields. The Hamas defenders never seem to notice that. And has UN yet commented on the cache of rockets found in the UN-run school in Gazah? While Ban is lambasting Israel, I have not heard him comment on the UN allowing Hamas to use the UN school as a weapons storage site.

    The atrocities committed by jihadis in Northern Nigeria keep piling up. But the UN and the international media pay no attention. No big demos and no UN resolutions about this.

    yabits:

    " You think history starts with Hamas rockets. "

    It does. That is what the Hamas defenders refuse to acknowledge. When Israel withdrew from Gaza, removing every single Jew from Gaza (including villages that had actually been there long before there was any Gaza strip or Israel), they really hoped they would get peace. Instead, they got Hamas, its declaration of war on Israel (read the Hamas constitution), and immediate attacks. Ever since then, Israel has been RESPONDING to Hamas attacks. It is only because the media tend to ignore Hamas aggression and only start reporting once Israel respond that this weird picture of two sides attacking each other was created. But that is simply propaganda. If Hamas wants peace, they can have it any time. Acknowledge Israels right to exist and stop terrorism. But that is too much to ask, apparently.

    Just now on TV they are reporting he said he was going to "marry her once she got 18". So had planned to keep her captive and brainwash her for 7 years? Creepy!!

    So, fundamentally this thing is one extremely expensive subway to Nagoya. Do we really need this, for any other reason than more taxpayer money used as construction pork?

    ISIS is carrying out a full-fledged genocide of the Christians (and Yazidis and Mandeans for that matter) in Western Iraq, but not word about that from the UN or the US. They are all busy looking the other way.

    So where where these protesters when Hamas was shooting rockets at Israeli towns? I did not notice them.
