Nagoya zoo website hacked to display messages on Nanjing Massacre:media


09:27, February 24, 2012

TOKYO, Feb. 23 (Xinhua) -- The website of a Nagoya city-run zoo was hacked Thursday and displayed messages saying that the massacre of civilians of eastern China's Nanjing City by Japanese soldiers in 1937 should be acknowledged, according to local media citing the city of Nagoya as saying.

Japanese Kyodo News Agency reported that the posted messages were believed to be responses of Nagoya Mayor Takashi Kawamura's recent denial of the Nanjing Massacre.

On Monday, the 63-year-old Kawamura told a visiting Nanjing city official that he believed what happened in Nanjing was only "conventional acts of war", not mass killing and raping of civilians. Kawamura's remarks soon draw criticism from China.

The posting in Japanese included messages stating ''The history is manipulated!'' and ''Please acknowledge the Nanjing Massacre!'' showed along with a photo of a man's body, according to Japanese local media.

The messages were reported by a staff of the Higashiyama Zoo and Botanical Gardens at around 8:45 a.m.. The Nagoya municipal government informed police after deleting the messages, according to local media reports.

Mr.Kawamura is a politician. Of course he knows the massacre real happened.He denies since people support denial.Of 330 mails, 270 support denial,saying well done,60 says history should be examined. I suggested embargo against Nagoya city. Japanese are too arrogant to admit they were babaric and even refused to compare with China and Korea in many areas, they think that they only should be compared with West, which they still call advanced countries. If not Japanese advanture, there would be no communist occupation, no Korean war, no Vietnum war; suffering of 100 millions of lives could be avoided. Japanese prospered under protection of McCarthur and started to think they are supre race and should not be compared with other Asian races, forgotten they even had no writing language less than 2000 years ago. Chinese should not travel to Nagoya or staying in their hotel,eat there,don"t buy anything there till the mayer recognize the fact and appologize for the massacre. They are taking advanture that Chinese are to passive. Anyway, Japan is still too contaminated by radioisotope to visit. Absoslutely do not let children to visit Japan. US used depleted uranium in 1991 gulf war, and the city hit was reporting high cancer rate for childre in late 1990"s.
