Yukihisa Fujita, a member of the Upper House of the Japanese Parliament has recently published a book titled: “Questioning 9/11 in Japan’s Parliament – Can Obama Change the USA?”
Co-authors of book are David Ray Griffin, Yumi Kikuchi, Akira Dojimaru and Chihaya.
Councilor Fujita is a current member and former director of the Committee on Foreign Affairs and Defense. In this function he questioned 9/11 three times in parliament. Fujita claims that 9/11, as the main reason for the “War on Terror,” needs to be newly investigated in order to find peaceful solutions.
On April 8 there was a formal reception on the occasion of the publishing of Mr. Fujita’s book at the Tokyo Dome Hotel.
The event was organized and promoted by a large group of Mr. Fujita’s supporters including the Chairman of the daily newspaper Japan Times, several leading representatives of the Democratic Party and several business executives. They hosted the event in honour of Mr. Fujita.
Yumi Kikuchi, a well known peace and 9/11 activist, first presented a video lecture that had been prepared by co-author of the book, Akira Dojimaru, who lives in Spain and was not present at the event. The presentation explained in great detail the numerous main points that completely contradict the official 9/11 account of the US administration and the mainstream media. It was made clear that 9/11 is used to constantly justify wars.
Takao Iwami, a political commentator who writes a column in the Mainichi Shimbun newspaper, then questioned Mr. Fujita about the book, the consequences of 9/11 and perspective of the world politics.
