Japan’s Lawmakers Launch Campaign Against ‘Comfort Women’ Memorials

Japanese conservatives are taking the offensive in the battle over World War II sex slaves — and it seems likely to do them more harm than good.

Some 300 legislators from around Japan have sent a petition to the city of Glendale, Calif., demanding the removal of a statue honoring women who were forced or coerced into working in brothels serving the Japanese military during World War II.

Supporters of the memorials say as many as 200,000 women from Korea and other Asian countries were forced to work as so-called comfort women. The Glendale memorial was built largely at the request of the area’s large Korean-American community. It is a duplicate of a statue installed outside the Japanese embassy in Seoul — one of many irritants to Japan–South Korea relations.

At a Tokyo press conference Tuesday, opponents said the memorial spread “false propaganda” and has resulted in bullying, harassment and discrimination against Japanese residents in the Glendale area. “Japanese schoolchildren are suffering from bullying by Koreans. Some of them told us they feel anxiety because they must hide being Japanese. Korean people are presenting this as a human-rights issue, but this can only lead to a new conflict of racial discrimination,” said Yoshiko Matsuura, a Tokyo-area assemblywoman and representative of a conservative group called the Japan Coalition of Legislators Against Fabricated History.

The press conference appeared to be part of a concerted campaign to push back against comfort-women charges. Japanese activists in California filed suit in federal court last week demanding the U.S. government order the city of Glendale to remove the statue, situated in a public park. Earlier this week, a spokesman for Prime Minister Shinzo Abe said the Japanese government would review a landmark 1993 government statement that apologized and admitted responsibility for operating the so-called comfort-women system during the war. Any change to that statement is certain to further damage relations with South Korea and China, already at a low point over territorial claims and historical disputes.

Taking the fight over comfort women to the U.S. is a “huge mistake,” says Brad Glosserman, executive director of the Pacific Forum CSIS, a Honolulu-based think tank.

“Clearly the American government is displeased by the notion that the Japanese are taking this argument to our shores and making it an American domestic political battle. It’s something they should settle themselves,” said Glosserman.

The issue already is causing controversy. A school in Higashiosaka, Glendale’s sister city in Japan, canceled a student-exchange program in December in protest over the memorial. An online petition at the White House website in support of removing the Glendale statue has received 127,000 signatures; a petition in support of keeping it has attracted 106,000 signatures.

The memorial was installed in a public park in Glendale, a suburb of Los Angeles, in July 2013. It features a bronze statue of a young Korean woman sitting next to an empty chair. A stone plaque is etched, jarringly, with the title “I Was a Sex Slave of the Japanese Military.” A similar memorial has been built in New Jersey, which Japanese diplomats and legislators also requested to be removed.

According to the lawsuit filed last week, installing the statue “exceeds the power of Glendale, infringes upon the federal government’s power to exclusively conduct the foreign affairs of the United States and violates the supremacy clause of the U.S. Constitution.”

Matsuura, who traveled to Glendale to deliver a copy of the petition to local officials last month, says the 1993 apology is based on unreliable and unverified testimony. She accused South Korea of exporting the issue to the U.S.

“We were shocked by a statue of a comfort girl in America, a third country, not in Korea. We have a responsibility to protest,” Matsuura said through an interpreter. A member of her husband’s family served in the Japanese Imperial Army during the war and was taken prisoner in Siberia, Matsuura said.

The Obama Administration has become increasingly frustrated with the rightward tilt of Japan’s leadership. The U.S. State Department said it was “disappointed” with Abe’s visit in December to the Yasukuni Shrine, which glorifies Japan’s role in World War II.

Weeks later, it labeled as “preposterous” public statements by an Abe appointee to the board of the national broadcaster, NHK, that the U.S. had fabricated war-crimes charges against Japan’s wartime leaders to cancel out America’s own war crimes, which he said include the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and the firebombings of Tokyo.

Glosserman says Japanese efforts to rewrite wartime history are damaging the interests of both countries. “The United States wants Japan to be a more respected and more effective contributor to regional security, and to play a larger role in the region. And all that this historical revisionism does is undermine that,” he says.

It was discovered that the 1993 Kono Statement was the product of political compromise to mollify the Koreans. As it doesnt reflect the historical truth, it is null and void.
The Japanese government should repeal the Kono Statement.

All right, but let the one who has never sinned throw the first stone.

First, please check the statistics below.

1. During the WW2 in East Asia, the prostitution was Legal. The number of 'Comfort Women' is estimated, from 20000 to 200000.

2. 2000s now in South Korea, the prostitution is ILLegal. The number of prostitutes is estimated, several hundreds of thousands.

  At least 260000 women in 2003 (Sources: Korean Institute of Criminology)

   Others say, the number is up to 500000~1200000 (Sources: The Korean Feminist Institution  Date: 2003.3.6.).

The economic condition now is much better than that of during the World War 2.

In this abundant society, even prohibited by law, still exist many prostitutes in South Korea.

My fellow citezens of the world, let's think rationally without the prejudices.

As the numbers show above, it must have been not so difficult to hire the prostitutes legally during the World War 2,

in the Korean Peninsula (including North Korea today).

Because even in 21st century,enough number of prostitutes exist in South Korea.

So I have to conclude that,

the large part of 'Comfort Women' were the voluntary prostitutes, from numerical and economical analysis.

People in the world should notice the situation of the sex industry in South Korea.

According to the Chosun ILbo, 10% of Korean prostitutes work overseas,so if I take the largest number, it amounts to 120000.

I hear, sometimes Japanese name is used, because it may be more attractive.

Finally I would like to say, I hope no prostitution will survive on this earth,

because no woman wants to be a prostitute, as long as she can get along without it.

Thank you for your attention.

Do you know what about this matter?

The comfort women were well known as professional girls for long time, (for example during Korea War , Korea soldiers bought the comfort girls). But at 1989, Japanese news paper Asahi reported that there are women who were captured like slave hunting and treat like slaves.
Many Japanese surprised, and wanted to research that.
At that time, Japanese government (the prime minister was from Socialist Party) apologized without deep researching.
But , after more than 20 years past, there are many historical evidences , witnesses, data exsist. Many historians, left wings , right wings, socialists, nationalists, politicians, old soldiers, Japanese comfort women, many many kind of witnesses and records were shown. Of course the Korean women talked at the court, but their saying were changing and changing, so we Japanese cannot believe their saying. They were obvious lying.  for example ones of them said they had been raped by Japanese soldiers till 1950 (Japan Imperial Forces did not  exist !)

Old Japanese army and navy have 3000000 soldiers. How we could keep 200000 such women, of cource it is too much.

(At first only 16 women said they were forced like slaves, but in this time they are saying 200000 comfort women exist. )
As the result, there were about 14000 comfort women, about 50% were Japanese, 20% were Korean
, and most of them were professional. It is the historical fact. many Japanese well kow this, we read many many records about this for more than 20 years. Are you saying you know more about this than Japanese ?  I think itt is impossible.

The real BOSS for the Comfort women system is S. Korean Gov't!!

Your missing daughters may be still in S. Korea now!

Foreign prostitutes in South Korea

South Korea is both a source and destination country for human trafficking. Mainly Chinese and Russian and Southeast Asian women are brought into the country for prostitution by Korean employment agencies, many of whom are tricked into thinking they will have a legitimate job. The agencies use high salaries to lure young girls to go to Korea and once they arrived, they will be forced to work as sex slaves.

The Father of the current President Park also assisted S. Korean brokers to hire and force Russian, Pilipino, Korean ladies to become comfort women.Please read the below 2 websites.

There are no evidence " kidnapped" " 200,000 women"

Japan never denied there were no comfort women.

Of cause there were comfort women. You know what Koreans and US military did to young girls and women during a Vietnam war ? And many more still today ?

FYI. Yakuza is not Japanese , they are THEM

THEY manipulate popoe how poor they are ,then you will help them.

But ...They never stop sucking money from you

Once they know you have money, they will complains gathering 100 of companies to harassing you.

Then you give money to stop them , then that the entrance to the hell.

Ya, Koreans are so angry about the comfort women that 50,000 Korean prostitutes are STILL illegally working in Japan currently, and another 100,000 to come in 2020 Tokyo olympics. But I'm sure 50 or 60 years from now they will be called the "second generation comfort women" or "sex slaves" as you wish to call them, and you americans will put up another statue for them. If you want to help them so badly then why don't you have them? We don't want those prostitutes here in our country! Stop sticking your nose where it doesn't belong Americans. If you care so much for victims, then you should put up a memorial for those so many innocent people that you've killed in the war. You do realize that you americans have killed more innocent people in war than any other country right? That doesn't have anything to do with this issue? YA! BECAUSE YOU HAVE EVERYTHING TO DO WITH THIS ISSUE!! sources: http://elitedaily.com/news/world/over-100000-korean-prostitutes-will-make-their-way-to-tokyo-for-the-2020-olympics/ http://idlewordship.net/tag/prostitution-in-korea/ http://asiancorrespondent.com/22136/hankyoreh-investigates-korean-women-in-japanese-prostitution/

@nukodaisuke

I think you may misunderstand the reality.

Do you hear about the person who had been managing the places of the 'comfort women'

during the Korean War ?

It is said, the person was the president Park Chung-hee, the father of  the president  Park Geun-hye.

Last year at the Korean Parliament, this problem was discussed earnestly.

But Cho Yoon-sun, the Minister of MGEF, was reluctant to investigate the fact.

(But already exist some documents)

So who should face the historical reality, are the Korean Cabinet Ministers, not Americans.

Please continue to study.

@taktakshin  You're using common sense rather than actual statistics or witness testimony.  You have absoluetly no backing up with historical texts, interviews from former victims, or evidence.  While you are busy trying to lie, there are countless evidence> pictures, witnesses, books written about them, and former Japanese soldiers admitting they were wrong. Not to mention your own government apologized in 1993..   YOU NEED TO STOP DENYING. THE JAPANESE WERE CRUEL, CRUEL, CRUEL HUMAN BEINGS DURING THAT TIME.  How do you possiblty deny this?

PM Luang Phibul Songkram (PM Phibul) allied with the Japanese quite early.  Thailand was the only Asian nation aside from Japan that remained independent from western occupation and exploitation.  As you know over 70% of Thai land was taken by either the UK, France, or China in the Shan area.  Rama V and Rama VI had to deal with western powers attempting to overthrow the Thai monarchy or subvert it to surrendering Thailand.  Only a tenuous balance of power between France and the UK kept the wolves from devouring Thailand.  HOWEVER, PM Phibul recognized in the 1920s that France and the UK were more allied post WWI, and even though Thailand had sent soldiers and airmen to fight the Germans on the side of the Allies, he could not be sure if the Western powers would still support Thai independence.  The UK was fairly open about their coveting the southern half of Thailand from Chumphon/Ranong to Patanni to add to their Burma/Malaya territory.  
Japan began to supply arms and advisors to Thailand in the 1930s.  During the Thai-French war of 1940, Japan negotiated the cease fire that allowed Thailand to gain territory back that the French had captured.  Further, Thailand helped improve the airfields in Pattani for use by the Japanese during the December 8, 1941 operations into Malaya against the UK.  Thai forces assisted in attacking UK and Chinese KMT forces to reclaim territory in the Shan states, etc.  Thailand declared war on the Allies in 1942 and was the last Japanese ally to surrender in 1946, a year after Japan did.  The US realized Thailand was in a tough spot and OSS Agent Thompson and others went early to Bangkok to negotiate with PM Phibul and the Japanese for a smooth transition to US control minus the UK who wanted a full occupation and restitution for Thailand.  He helped the Thais negotiate and keep the UK and France form owning Thailand and set the stage so Thailand could remain independent after the war.
The Seri Thai, by OSS records in the CBI Theater was a very small group that was combat ineffective and the information was unreliable.  A popular myth arose after the war and especially when Thailand was supportive of US actions during Vietnam that the Seri Thai was the majority of Thais…however, this was not the case according to OSS records and statements.  
Thailand has an incredible history, but should not fall prey to making up a false history to satisfy a post war narrative that they did not support the Japanese.  Its nothing to be ashamed of.  The Americans, by use of the OSS in SE Asia, also were on the side in a way of the Japanese aims of removing the UK, Dutch, and French stranglehold on SE Asia

@HyungJoon @taktakshin  Good, lets look at some facts:


Lets look at some findings from the Korean side, before the politically powerful Black Shirt tactics of the Comfort Women lobby and their cronies took effect in the early 90s.  Keep in mind there was NO sex slave narrative before 1985.  A Japanese made this issue up in a work of fiction he tried to pass off as fact in his book where he claimed 200,000 Korean women were kidnapped and forced to be prostititues.  **This was the first instance of this myth being released to the mainstream**


At the time Ms. Kim Bong Ok was the head of the Cheju-do island history association.  Cheju-do was where Yoshida Seiji (the author who wrote he had committed this kidnapping in 1985 but later admitted to making all of it up a decade later), had stated he kidnapped a majority of the girls.  Mr. Ok quoted "This is a prime example of the brutality and barbarity of the Japanese (the fabrication of the kidnapping story).  The author writes about acts that most people would find too shameful to describe.  We should dignify what he produced by calling it a book."  Even in the village where the Japanese fascist mentions 15 girls being kidnapped the Korean press went and interviewed Chon Ok Dan (Then 85) a resident of Seongsan-li "It's not true.  There are only a little over 250 houses in this village.  If an incident that serious, where 15 people were abducted, had taken place, everyone would have heard about it.  But no one did."


So there were NO corroborating witnesses.  Further, the one that did come forward at the time: Mrs. Kim Hak Sun initially said she was sold into prostitution, then changed her story to she was kidnapped by soldiers (and that story changed no less than 5 times in major details), then finally she admitted that she was already a prostitute and her contract was sold to a brothel in China that serviced a lot of military persons.  Again not forced and she admitted as much under questioning.


A voice that was recently bullied into silence is Professor Emeritus Ahn Byong Jik.  He was on the Volunteer Corps Research group which also took on the Comfort Women study as well.  He found that of the 40 women interviewed (almost all who came forward and presented themselves at that time..there are 55 now) in 1992-1996, only 19 were credible, the rest had invented narratives and continued to invent facts.  Out of those 19 Professor Ahn on the questions asked how many were forced or coerced.  The answer was 4.  Out of those 4 he further questions the circumstances and two were found to have been put into civilian brothels, and the other 2 mentioned were Kim Hak Sun and Moon Ok Ju.  Kim later recanted her story and admitted she was already a prostitute, and Moon was later found to have volunteered but later said she was forced to go from Burma where she was serving as a prostitute to Manchuria and didn't want to go…so not coerced to join.


Professor Ahn was recently assaulted in Korea by a group of black shirts demanding he recant his public statements on the findings from his time in the research group.  It is to Professor Ahn and those other courageous Koreans who are not afraid to tell the truth in the midst of tremendous pressure from the Comfort Women lobby that we should be aware of, as well as the facts on the issues.

@thksjin @Raimbow893  Please don't mix other Asian countries and Korean problem. I think you have never heard that Japanese denied and complained about those problem about other country. You know, Japan apologize for those Asian women and Japanese prime minister send letter for them. And other Asian women received those apologize. But at that time, only Korea refused apologize letter from Japanese prime minister. And after that they demand many things more and more. Please never mix other Asian country and Korean problem.

And you know, during WW2, Korea were including Japan. And 80% politician in Korea were Korean people. I feel Korean conceal these facts. Korean  gathered Korean women. And they earned money.At that era, you know, Samsung Electronicscompanywas established. Korean always trust and insist that Japan took all things from Korea by force. I want to ask you.Why could Korean make Samsung?  If we can find evidence that Japan tried to contribute for Korea's development,  they insist ” it is an exception." or " Japan's support was in fact s for only Japanese "or something. They were received anti- Japanese education too much.

My father told me that my grandfather worked with Korean people during WW2 in Japan. and when Korean people went back to  Korea, they had tears shed because of a reluctant parting with each other.So I trust there were many kind of people who had good relationship with Japanese in Korea.But Korea had civil war for long time after WW2.  After that, Korean began to give anti- Japanese education to their nation and relationship between  Korea and Japanese changed.

Bombkiller007
Bombkiller007

@HyungJoon  You can not deny a lie.  The Comfort Women lobby has created a myth that sadly many good Koreans are getting drawn up into based on emotion and a misplaced sense of pride.  See the above for the statistics on the actual number of the Comfort Women that presented themselves from 1992-1996 (44) that were found to have been forced.  Professor Emeritus Ahn reported ZERO.  Compare this with the OWI (Office of Warfare Information i.e. the OSS (CIA) information operations branch) that captured Comfort Women in Burma in 1944.  Not only after a week of interrogation looking for any piece of information that we could use against the Japanese with the Comfort Women (the goal of the OWI in that theater was to separate via information operations the Japanese from their Thai, Burmese, Indian, Korean, Indonesian, etc supporters) ,there were ZERO bits to use.  i.e. it clearly stated the women were contracted sex workers, not coerced, well treated compared to the Japanese soldiers (who were at that time dying by the tens of thousands from disease and starvation after the retreat post Operation U-Go (Imphal Battle ).  Two of the captured Koreans had even married Japanese soldiers.


The issue is only to divide South Korea and Japan.  It was started in the mid 80s by a delusional Japanese hack writer trying to sell a sensational book using sex and violence.  In the early 90s various Japanese and Korean groups were formed who saw this as a money making operation….pure greed.  Then during the mid 90s and recently many well meaning people have been sucked into this lie and are puppets to competing geopolitical powers in the region who want to fan the flames of racial hatred between Japan and Korea.


Korea is a wonderful country with a proud history, but it is quickly loosing face amount Western Academics due to the obvious push on this and a few other issues.

Koreans always say;
History learned by Japanese are always wrong and history learned by Koreans are always right.
Haven't you ever (EVER!) doubt that what you learned in your country might be different from what others leaned in their country?

How would you feel if your father or brother are accused for crimes they did not committed?
I must make it clear that Japanese NEVER denied that Japanese soldiers used comfort women brothels.

We admitted that those women included many poor women sold by their family and we feel very sorry for them. 

Therefore Japan paid enormous compensation to Korea under the Treaty in 1965 , and furthermore made official apologies and established Asian Women Fund for all Asian comfort women in WWII. 


What Japan says "No" is that all exaggerations and fabrications made by Koreans in the last decade.
Have Japanese ever pushed any comfort women off aircraft?
Have Japanese abducted over 200,000 women?
IF any contradiction, mismatch, or conflict between two countries, we MUST re-examine together.
Isn't it fair?
However, Korea refuse to do it and only bash Japan in order to stop any action to review history.


In any case, nothing can satisfy Koreans forever.
You Koreans thrive on Japan-bashing in order to keep your identity and your country both of which seem very fragile.

You must remember that Japan is neither your moneybag nor your sandbag to release your stress lead by your own problem.


Lastly, I personally agree to establish the statue of comfort women, IF the inscription of the statue mention  all the women whose sex were exploited under ANY wars, including WWII, Vietnam War and Korean War.

Just be fair.

At least you came up with some new items this time.  But again, (and again) great illustrator for everyone to see that the fascist Comfort Women lobby is in reality filled with hate and intolerance vs. actually focused on human trafficking issues.  As someone noted before I think it is telling that the statues in California and New Jersey do absolutely nothing for bringing awareness and therefore constructive work to the issue of human trafficking, but instead are singularly focused on promoting hate and intolerance between communities in the US.  They should be taken down, as Faew52 rants illustrate, the hate an intolerance fueled by them serves no constructive purpose.
