Japan's daydream of history cover-up

The distortion of history by Japan reaches a height of shamelessness.

The Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan examined and approved textbooks for middle school that shows undisguised ambition to seize Tok Island and seriously distorts history.

Most of textbooks to be used at middle schools across Japan from 2021 specify Tok Island as "territorial part of Japan" and the contents on past crimes committed by the Japanese imperialists like forcible drafting of Koreans and sexual slavery were deleted from them or distorted.

This is a part of dangerous policy of aggression employed by the Japanese reactionaries who work hard to realize their wild ambition for reinvasion at any cost by implanting the ultra-right historical view in the minds of young generations.

Every distorted or revised phrase is saturated with the wickedness of Japan seeking to justify the history of aggression, avoid its responsibility for liquidating the past and grab other's land at any coast.

From long ago, Japan has been desperately keen on imbuing young generations with a view negating the history.

In particular, falsified textbooks are massively introduced to educational establishments along with evermore intensified moves of "rewriting the history" under the Abe regime.

The gravity of those moves lies in the increase of kinds of textbooks as well as the steadily intensified distortion of their contents.

The textbooks for primary, middle and high schools have more pages dealing with justifications for the shameless territorial ambition of the Japanese authorities. On the contrary, such contents about Japan's war crimes like its history of aggression and issue of sexual slavery were completely distorted and deleted or drastically cut and omitted.

It is obvious what sort of world outlook and mentality will dominate young generations of Japan after they learn from such textbooks.

Education is an important work decisive of the future and prospect of every country.

But, the Japanese reactionaries are seeking to easily send out young generations as shock troops for realizing the unattained dream of "Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere" by teaching make-believe and immorality to them and brainwashing them.

They have been persistently keen on distorting the history, far from making deep repentance of the history of crimes that inflicted severe pains on the Korean people and other Asian peoples. This clearly shows that Japan fails to get free from the departed soul of aggression.

No matter how desperately the Japanese reactionaries are trying to negate the past history, they can neither erase the traces of crimes against the Korean nation nor obscure the fact that Tok Island belongs to the Korean nation.

History itself is a living witness and truth.

Japan's daydream about covering up the truth of history by deleting and distorting the facts unfavorable for it will lead itself to misfortune.
