He sat on the shore to demonstrate to fawning courtiers his all-too-human inability to command the incoming tide to turn back again, and got a right royal drenching in the process. Or so the legend goes.
Jews, by contrast, are made of more powerful stuff.
They have the means to command the arrival of an entire tsunami.
That's the whacko view of Richard Koshimizu, a Japanese antisemite and self-described journalist who successfully placed an ad for a book he's written claiming that Jews instigated Japan's devastating earthquake-tsunami of March 2011 (that took 18,000 lives) in a regional edition (circulation 5000) of the conservative national Japanese daily Sankei Shimbun.
'A little-known figure in Japan, Koshimizu used the promotional space to market a book claiming the United States is a “Jewish dictatorship state” that detonated an atomic bomb deep underwater to deliberately trigger the earthquake and subsequent tsunami that devastated Japan’s northeast coastline.'Koshimizu (pictured) is also a Holocaust Denier and 9/11 "truther".
He holds that the Holocaust was a "fabrication" by Jews in order that the State of Israel might be established.
And he insists that Jews were responsible for the 9/11 atrocities.
Now, following a protest by Rabbi Abraham Cooper, associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the head of the firm that owns the newspaper which carried the ad has apologised:
"It is extremely regrettable that an advertisement of this content was carried and delivered to our readers, and we deeply apologise to readers and the people of the Jewish community.
It was obvious there was a fault in our screening of advertisements.
The Sankei considers the Holocaust by the Nazis as an unforgivable, heinous crime ..."
