Urgent appeal to the Mujahiddin
Urgent appeal to the Mujahiddin - from Save Iraqi Children Nagoya
We -- large numbers of ordinary Japanese citizens -- opposed to the participation of Japanese military forces in the illegal attack on the people of Iraq by the United States and Great Britain, appeal to the Iraqi Mujahiddin not to kill our three fellow Japanese brothers. They share with us the same determination to stop the Japanese government from occupying your country.
We do not accept your hostage-taking, which only provide fuel to terrorism by states such as USA. We want you to know that very large numbers of Japanese people have been strongly opposing the presence of Japanese military forces in your country. However, please remember killing the three innocent Japanese you are now holding hostage, will not solve the problem. Instead it will only create hatred towards your country by our people.
We, the people of Japan, are in solidarity with the people of Iraq. Please be patient, and give us more time to convince our Government to withdraw from Iraq.
Till then, we urgently call upon your patriotism to avoid breaking the historical friendship between the Japanese and the Arab people.
