Japanese people are strongly opposed to the comfort woman memorial because it will create a conflict among people, leading to hate crime and children bullying not only in your city but also elsewhere. I hear there is such a case in Glendale monument.

The proposer has been insisting that this is a human rights issue. It may be true. But, instead of blaming only Japan, it is more appropriate to address all major human rights issues in the world and learn from the cases to solve them and prevent from happening again.

Chinese and Korean interest has been waging a concerted anti-Japan/Japanese movements all over the United States. The “hate Japan” education in their homeland has been promoting the atmosphere even in the U.S. 71 years after the last war. We should work toward the future for the benefits of the younger generations in a more constructive way rather than destructively.

日本語要約:サンフランシスコ慰安婦記念碑設置についてメールします。設置案を却下するようお願いします。中国・韓国系による反日運動が全米に広まっています。戦後71年経っているにも関わらず、本国での”嫌日”教育が米国に持ち込まれています。若い世代に為に我々はより建設的に努めるべきです。私はサンフランシスコ公園慰安婦記念碑設置に強く反対します。

 

<例文 4>
Dear Dear Commissioners:
又は
Dear Mr. Aaron Peskin:

We strongly oppose developing a statue of a “comfort woman” memorial in San Francisco. It is my understanding that there is a discussion about building a memorial of a comfort woman in San Francisco. Kindly take this objection into consideration.
The issue of comfort women is a very controversial, sensitive issue and indeed a point of political contest between Japan and Korea as of today. For example, Korea calls for an unequivocal public apology for comfort women from Japan but Japan’s Prime Ministers in the past apologized officially many times for comfort women and also contributed the equivalent of $47 million to an Asian Women’s Fund created to assist former comfort women; but this was not considered enough by Korean comfort women.
Do you know such a statue already exists in the US? The statue has been a focal point for demonstrations, which led to the bullying of children, whose only “fault” was having Japanese parents. If we allowed such a statue to be built here, it will send a wrong message to America as a whole; that it is acceptable for one immigrant community to accuse another, citing historical grievances from their country of origin. US cities like Fairfax and Glendale where comfort women memorials have gone up, experienced a great deal of turmoil in their communities and ignited divisions between Japanese and Korean communities.
Do we really need to have this in San Francisco? The answer is no.
It is unnecessary to introduce an icon of foreign political dispute into our city.
We believe it is in everybody’s best interest to preserve the harmony amongst ethnic groups, to work together to discourage hatred and violence between its peoples, and preserve harmony within our communities.
Peace and understanding amongst our citizens and residents are necessary in order to create a strong future.

Sincerely,

  2. Tosh Hayakawa says:

    Dear Nadeshiko,
    Thank you for your significant contribution to international justice.
    Your banner at this page’s top calls us,「慰安婦=性奴隷」の嘘に終止符を!, i.e.,
    End the lie, “comfort women are sex slaves”!
    However, I have hard time trying to find an opinion on this page that tells them the “Slave” accusation is a lie.
    The accusers want to think the “Slaves” were the truth.
    Respectfully,


  3. TOSHIAKI SANO says:

    I like San Francisco. I visited it several times in the past. Because I knew the setting of the bronze statue in news, I stopped going to San Francisco. By the testimony in the Jeju island of Korea, the Korean testifies, “there was not the compulsion at all”. Please investigate a fact.
