    Dear Leon, The fact that Japanese were not treated the same way local Germans or German-descendants were, does not make it right. As a matter of fact, this was recognized by the American government and the japanes were paid some (mediocre) reparations. It should also not be forgotten that the American military unit with the highest amount of awarded medals as well as caualties, was the Japanese-American regiment in WWII Italy. Insofar as the terror aspect, I can only state that Israel, a nuclear power, a country with the world's 4th. largest army, a country with almost unlimited military, economic and diplomatic support from the USA (and Germany) should take a closer look at what the grievances are that cause it to be so concerned with some Palestinians blowing themselves - and innocent Israelis - up. Would a more just and equanimous approach do more for Israel than this "mine is mine and yours is negotiable" attitude? It is sad to see a country heading to only God knows where.
