Are Islamic Extremists Jihadists or Terrorists?: The Necessity of Freedom in Islamic Countries by Ryūhō Ōkawa( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The West has been leading a long war on terror since the 9/11 terrorist attacks in 2001 on American soil by Osama bin Laden's al-Qaeda. Even after the assassination of Osama bin Laden on May 2, 2011, by President Obama's Special Forces unit, terrorist attacks have continued around the world. On January 16, 2013, an international crisis erupted when Islamic terrorists organized by Mokhtar Belmokhtar lay siege to an Algerian gas plant. After the Algerian government sent in a special forces unit, thirty-nine foreign hostages were killed and 685 Algerian workers and one hundred foreigners escaped or were freed. * <br /><br /> Are the attacks by Islamic extremist groups like al-Qaeda and the organization led by Mokhtar Belmokhtar unjust acts of terror? Or are they justified acts of a holy war, as the self-proclaimed jihadists claim? In this interview with Osama bin Laden, Master Ryuho Okawa provides us with his conclusive answer to these questions. <br /><br /> * "Q&A: Hostage Crisis in Algeria," <em>BBC News , January 21, 2013, http://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-21056884

South Korea's conspiracy : President Park's hidden agenda to unite with China by Ryūhō Ōkawa( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 86 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2010, a monument was built in the New York City suburb of Palisades Park, New Jersey, dedicated to comfort women--Korean women that South Koreans claim were forced into sexual slavery by Japanese soldiers during World War II. In July 2013, a second memorial was built in Glendale, California. As these monuments indicate, the United States is fully involved in the international controversy over differences in how Japan and Korea perceive the events of World War II. Now, South Korea is bringing yet another controversial topic into the spotlight, this time with the support of China. At the request of South Korean President Park Geun-hye, China is building a memorial to An Jung-geun, the man who in 1909 assassinated the first Prime Minister of Japan and the first Resident-General of Korea, Ito Hirobumi. In this spiritual interview, we begin by speaking with the spirit of An Jung-geun before moving on to a conversation with the guardian spirit of President Park, who forced herself into the interview out of fear that the interview will reveal the truth about him. Through these conversations, Master Ryuho Okawa tries to discover the facts about the assassination of Ito Hirobumi to determine whether An Jung-geun can justifiably be hailed as a hero. Was it truly a patriotic act to assassinate Ito Hirobumi, who actively opposed the Japanese annexation of Korea? Ito Hirobumi was an important political figure who represented Japan's protection of Korea from Russian domination during the Russo-Japanese War. Did assassinating him truly serve the happiness of the Korean people? While South Koreans continue to accuse Japan of having wronged their nation, Master Okawa hopes that these interviews will provide a truthful understanding of the historical events between Japan and South Korea. He hopes that by revealing the truth, these interviews will help the international community understand the nature of true international justice

Into the storm of international politics : the new standards of the world order by Ryūhō Ōkawa( )

2 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 84 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

& lt;p & gt;In September 2013, President Obama stated, "We should not be the world's policeman." As signified by those words, America has been declining and the world order is being lost. In the Middle East, Islamic State declared independence in June 2014. Furthermore, in Hong Kong, the Umbrella Revolution -- a movement against China's anti-democratic, single-party dictatorship -- broke out in September 2014. & lt;br / & gt; & lt;br / & gt; At the roots of these three movements lie three different sets of values. America's decline indicates Christian civilization not having clear standards on what justice is in this complex world of the current era. The problem with Islamic State is that a portion of Muslims in the current era have lost the spirit of peace and tolerance that Muhammad taught. Totalitarianism of China is founded upon materialism, a thought which denies human dignity and freedom of the individual. The world is now seeking a new idea or a new philosophy that will show the countries with such values the direction they should head in. & lt;br / & gt; & lt;br / & gt; Master Ryuho Okawa is an author of over 1,700 books and spiritual leader with passionate followers in over 100 countries around the world. In this book, Okawa presents new standards of the world order while giving his own analysis on world affairs concerning the U.S., China, Islamic State and others. He does so based on his deep knowledge in world history, world philosophy and world religions as well as his experience in the international trade industry, and also based on his spiritual insight into the hidden consciousness of major countries' leaders in the current era. In Into the Storm of International Politics, Okawa states, "Some kind of new standard or direction that the world should take needs to be clearly defined. This new direction has to be a moral philosophy to create a new world order and that moral philosophy must include economic principles. Accordingly, it must be a moral philosophy that stimulates global economic growth under the perspective of world justice." & lt;br / & gt; & lt;br / & gt; "A new world order should head in this direction"--A new philosophy from Japan will point to and show us the way. & lt;/p & gt

The Manifesto of the Happiness Realization Party by Ryūhō Ōkawa( )

1 edition published in 2015 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

& lt;p & gt;Happy Science, a new religion representing modern-day Japan, is working to realize "the happiness that carries over from this world to the next." Not only is Happy Science helping people return to Heaven after death, but it is also trying to make this world, a training ground for the soul, a place where people can live shining brightly. & lt;br / & gt; & lt;br / & gt;In order to strongly promote the creation of such a world, Master Ryuho Okawa of Happy Science established the Happiness Realization Party in May 2009, a new political party to take on that task. This book is the declaration of the establishment of HRP by Master Okawa. The title of this book may remind you of & lt;i & gt;Communist Manifesto & lt;/i & gt; which was written by Karl Marx back in 1848. In & lt;i & gt;The Manifesto of the Happiness Realization Party & lt;/i & gt;, the author states the following: & lt;br / & gt; & lt;br / & gt;"As a result of & lt;i & gt;Communist Manifesto & lt;/i & gt;, humanity suffered for a period of over 150 years. Ultimately, this became an experiment on civilization that brought about the creation of materialist nations, and thus 'Manifesto of the Happiness Realization Party' is aiming to achieve the opposite of this. & lt;br / & gt; & lt;br / & gt;The 'Manifesto of the Happiness Realization Party' declares, 'We shall mobilize the capacities of people who recognize the existence of God and Buddha and believe in the correct Buddha's Truth, and work to build a worldly, realistic utopia. We shall make Japan a starting point for our political activities, and have an impact on people throughout the whole world. We intend to bring about a simultaneous global revolution in the correct sense.'" & lt;br / & gt; & lt;br / & gt;This book is a historical declaration to change the world through a peaceful revolution by the philosophy and speech based on the Truth, rather than by violence or massacre. The book states the political issues of modern-day Japan, which is the birthplace of such revolution; it also states on the assessment of the meaning of WW II as well as how the relation between religion and politics should be. It is a must read for all people who wish to build a true utopia. & lt;/p & gt
The Syrian Crisis : What Is God's Verdict on U.S. Military Intervention? - Spiritual Messages from the Guardian Spirit of President Assad by Ryūhō Ōkawa( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Is there justice in a U.S. military intervention into the ongoing Syrian crisis? What is God's perspective on the tragedy that is occurring in Syria? When President Barack Obama requested Congressional approval for military strikes on Syria, the people of the United States were obliged to consider these and other difficult questions, even amid their weariness and guilt over the Iraq War. The international community must also consider how President Obama's indecisiveness might affect tensions between Japan, China, North Korea, and South Korea and between Israel and Iran
Unmasking Ban Ki-moon's Biased Stance Investigating the Paralysis of the United Nations by Ryūhō Ōkawa( )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 82 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On August 21, 2013, the Syrian people suffered a chemical-weapons attack, and reports soon spread that the Assad regime was behind the attack. These reports set off a global debate: should the United States, the United Nations, and other world powers launch military strikes on Syria? The United Nations Security Council's inability to resolve the crisis has drawn criticism, with some commentators saying that the U.N. system has been seized by paralysis. The world is currently facing many critical international issues that require resolution through strong leadership dedicated to the preservation of international peace and security. What are U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's true thoughts on these pressing issues? What does he think about the disputes between Japan and South Korea over ownership of the Takeshima Islands, between Japan and China over ownership of the Senkaku Islands, and between Iran and Israel over nuclear weapons capability? Can we depend on him to successfully uphold the principle of impartiality in the United Nations's role of peacemaking? In this spiritual interview with the guardian spirit of Mr. Ban Ki-moon, Master Okawa reveals the U.N. Secretary-General's true character and true intentions regarding his important peacemaking responsibilities. It is Master Okawa's hope that with this information, the world will be able to make better political and economic decisions that will truly contribute to justice and lasting peace
