"Stupid war" and "Stupid Sensei"

Media report says that a former General Hokkeko Leader, Daisaku Ikeda, has made a gpeace proposal,h which calls for a summit conference between the US and Russia in order to achieve nuclear disarmament. Upon the inauguration of President Obama in the United States, we knew that Daisaku Ikeda would do something; his peace proposal is exactly what we have anticipated. He is an individual who readily chimes in with others.


As a matter of course, gabsolute pacifismh is indeed the spirit of the Rissho ankoku-ron written by Nichiren Daishonin. Thus, we pray every day for the realization of a nuclear reduction, to nuclear abolition, then to demilitarization. However, the realization of such will become all the more distant with gopinions offered by Daisaku Ikedah. I can say this affirmatively.


To begin with, it was the Komei Party which actively supported the sending of the Self-Defense Forces to Iraq. The Komei Party followed former President Bushfs policy of attacking Iraq, even to the extent of ignoring the UN resolution. We should never forget this. In particular, a former Chairman of the Komei Party back then, and a Soka Gakkai member, Kanzaki, stated, gThis is not a dangerous area,h while he was having his hair cut in a barber in Iraq. Kanzaki took a leadership role in sending the Self-Defense Force personnel to Iraq. We must remember this as one of the acts of the former General Hokkeko Leader, Daisaku Ikeda, who tries to take advantage of the Koizumifs popularity.


It has been made clear that gmass destructive weaponsh which was the main cause of plunging into the Iraqi War, turned out to be a mistake. There has been no word of apology expressed for the fact that this mistake has caused a loss of many peoplefs lives. Some say that more than 10 million lives were taken. For your information, out of 19,700 dispatched Japanese Self-Defense Force personnel, 35 died although they were not reported as the war dead. Out of those 35, it was reported to the Diet that 16 were suicides.


As a master of Kanzaki, who actively gave support to the gstupid war,h and as someone who dominates the Gakkai, which is the foundation of the Komei Party, what does Ikeda think about the responsibility of his disciple, Kanzaki?


Speaking of Kanzaki, during his student days, he is said to have received a pair of socks (not shoes) from his master, Daisaku Ikeda, and was so moved that he made strong determination to fight for his master, no matter what. We would like to question his responsibility as Kanzakifs master.


President Obama has been all along opposed to sending the US troops to Iraq since 2002, saying that the Iraqi War was a gstupid war.h Therefore, he would not be influenced by the irresponsible gproposal for peace by Daisaku Ikeda.h On the other hand, President Obamafs pledge is to achieve nuclear disarmament, which has been longed for by everyone in the world. Thus, it is also our desire that it be realized at the earliest possible date.


Ikeda, who is the Second Advent of jealous Devadatta, made the peace proposal because he is even jealous of Mr. Obamafs future achievements. In other words, he wants to be able to claim later that the nuclear disarmament has been accomplished because of his peace proposal, and make his disciples talk about it. Everything is for ghis own fame.h If his proposal came true, this gfame-chasing Presidenth would be able to show what a great man he is.


Nuclear weapons, mass destructive weapons, and regular weapons are all means to kill people. They should not exist in the first place. Furthermore, to someone who takes faith in the Buddhafs teachings, their existence should not be accepted. If Ikeda has genuinely made the proposal in hopes of world peace, why in the world didnft he oppose the Iraqi War when it broke out, just as President Obama did? Why did he make his disciple, Kanzaki, wave the flag for the war? He waited until this time to make the peace proposal.


If Ikeda is a true pacifist, and is a friend of the Chairman of China and the Chinese Premier as he sells himself to be, he should strongly recommend disarmament to China, who is steadily reinforcing armaments, by saying, gLet us stop increasing armaments,h or gYou seem to be building up the naval power by constructing aircraft carriers recently, but please stop it.h Or even before he says these things, Ikeda should mention at least a greduction of the Self-Defense Forcesh as a greatest supporter of the Liberal Democratic and Komei Party administration. The gpeace proposalh performance is nothing but a nuisance since Ikeda made it in pursuit of acceptance among Soka Gakkai members as well as a group of people purporting to be intellectuals, who are blinded by his financial strength.


Ikeda should once again go back to sincere faith by recalling one of Nichiren Daishoninfs teachings, gInconspicuous good deeds lead to conspicuous benefits.h
