Japan's National Chauvinism under Fire
| Pyongyang, February 8 (KCNA) -- Recently Korean School in Osaka and Korean students in Aichi Prefecture, Japan separately filed a suit in local courts in Osaka and Nagoya against the Japanese government's attitude of excluding the Koreans schools from the tuition-waiver program for senior high schools. They demanded it apply the program to the Korean schools.
Minju Joson Friday observes in a bylined commentary in this regard:
This was an entirely just action as it is aimed at defending the dignity and right of the Korean nation.
Such discriminating measure taken by the Japanese government against the Korean schools is a gross violation of the principle of humanitarianism and another serious politically-motivated act of trampling upon the dignity and interests of the Korean nation.
It is the inveterate evil practice of Japan to look down upon other nations.
In the past, Japan launched the invasion of Asian countries, advocating the idea of dominating and despising other nations. In this course it committed uncountable hideous crimes against humanity, touching off the resentment of the world people.
Lurking behind these war crimes was strong national chauvinism.
Such dangerous national chauvinism lives on in Japan, driving Japanese society into the Right and militarization.
What is more serious is that the Japanese reactionaries are directing the spearhead of national chauvinism to the DPRK and the General Association of Korean Residents in Japan (Chongryon).
It is the black-hearted intention of the Japanese reactionaries to impair the international prestige of the DPRK through the moves against it and Chongryon and eventually destabilize Chongryon by putting economic pressure on it.
They would be well advised to know that they would have to pay a dear price for its actions hostile to the DPRK and for confrontation with it, and would be held accountable for them.
Japan had better stop such base and sinister actions at once and behave itself.
