Japan’s ‘No Muslim’ policy keeping terrorist attacks away

Donald Trump may be getting blasted with his ban on Muslims remarks, but look no further than Japan to find a successful escape from jihadists and terrorist attacks. In an article published today, titled “Have you ever wondered why there aren’t any terrorist attacks in Japan?”, the writer examines the country’s policy towards Muslims.

“There is a simple reason we never read about jihadi attacks in Japan. There are no Muslims there. No Muslims, no terrorists,” the article begins.

Quoting from the Jewish Press, here’s the overall policy towards Muslims.

“This country keeps a very low profile on all levels regarding the Muslim matter: On the diplomatic level, senior political figures from Islamic countries almost never visit Japan, and Japanese leaders rarely visit Muslim countries. The relations with Muslim countries are based on concerns such as oil and gas, which Japan imports from some Muslim countries. The official policy of Japan is not to give citizenship to Muslims who come to Japan, and even permits for permanent residency are given sparingly to Muslims.”

That 2013 article notes that “Japanese companies seeking foreign workers specifically note that they are not interested in Muslim workers. And any Muslim who does manage to enter Japan will find it very difficult  to rent an apartment. Anywhere a Muslim lives, the neighbors become uneasy. Japan forbids the establishment of Islamic organizations, so setting up Islamic institutions such as mosques and schools is almost impossible. In Tokyo there is only one imam.”

Charisma points out that there are only 10,000 Muslims in a country of over 126 million people and that “Muslim immigration is officially and culturally discouraged, and a Japanese woman who marries a Muslim man becomes a social outcast.”

“The official policy of the Japanese authorities is to make every effort not to allow entry to Muslims, even if they are physicians, engineers and managers sent by foreign companies that are active in the region.”

The Japanese have a patriotic pride in Japanese exceptionalism, Japanese culture and Japanese traditions, and instinctively recognize that enculturating Islam threatens all that because its value system is so antithetical to what makes Japan Japan.

That Jewish Press article concludes: “Japan is teaching the whole world an interesting lesson: there is a direct correlation between national heritage and permission to immigrate: A people that has a solid and clear national heritage and identity will not allow the unemployed of the world to enter its country; and a people whose cultural heritage and national identity (are) weak and fragile has no defense mechanisms to prevent a foreign culture from penetrating into its country and its land.”
