By Dr. Patrick Slattery — On January 19 Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe obediently groveled to Israel to pledge support for the Zio-war on terror. Japan, whose constitution actually prohibits the country from maintaining a military, already has “peace keeping” troops in the Zionist created new nation of South Sudan, and Abe promised Netanyahu that Japan will provide $200 million in “humanitarian aid” to the countries fighting ISIS. This, of course, is not what it means, because the most effective military fighting ISIS belongs to the Syrian government, yet this aid will certainly wind up going to groups opposed to the Syrian government.
Netanyahu warned Abe that Japan could become a target of terrorism, and almost on cue, within a matter of hours ISIS released a video featuring two Japanese hostages in orange jumpsuits and a knife-wielding masked man who announced in British English that the Japanese would be killed if a $200 million ransom is not paid in 72 hours.
The timing of the message is not the only suspicious aspect of the story. The video seems to be a composite as the three men were clearly not filmed in the same place at the same time. The hostage of the left, free-lance journalist Kenji Goto, has shadows on the right side of his face, while self-styled military consultant and former homeless person Haruna Yukawa has shadows on the left side of his face. Also, Yukawa’s jumpsuit billows in the wind, while Goto’s is mostly still. Furthermore, the both hostages fail to show the slightest emotion as the masked man points a knife at each of their heads and threatens to kill them.
What all this means is hard to say. The video is certainly NOT proof that the two hostages are still alive. They could have been killed weeks ago and their previously taped images could have been edited into this video. But what is clear is that Israel, fresh off an attack on Syria in which six anti-ISIS Hezbollah militia members and an Iranian general were killed, is massing military forces to “the northern front” in preparations for military actions against Syria and its Hezbollah allies in Lebanon.
