honda_mike1.jpgRE: An Open letter to Representative Honda
The Honorable Mike Honda
UNITED STATES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES

Dear Representative Honda:

On January 31, 2007 you, along with six other Representatives, submitted House Resolution 121, which calls on the Japanese government to apologize for having forced young women to become sex slaves during World War II, to the House Committee on Foreign Affairs. The import of Resolution 121 is identical to that of Resolution 759, which expired in committee last year.

On September 28, 2006, we sent the attached letter to all members of the House of Representatives. In it, we indicated that the accusations in Resolution 759 were exceedingly unjust and based on gross distortions of historical fact. Accordingly, we find it very difficult to comprehend your reasons for submitting this resolution.. We strongly urge you to withdraw it without delay.

If you choose not to withdraw Resolution 121, you must shoulder the burden of disproving historical fact as outlined in the aforementioned letter. The persons referred to as “comfort women” were prostitutes (a legal profession at the time) working in brothels; they were indisputably not coerced to engage in such activities by the Japanese military.

We would like to draw particular attention to excerpts from two official U.S. military records cited in our letter. The first is a report issued by the United States Office of War Information, Psychological Warfare Team Attached to U.S. Army Forces, India-Burma Theater, which states that ”comfort girls” are nothing more than a prostitute or professional “camp follower”, and the girls’ average total monthly earnings were 1,500 yen, and 750 yen went to their master. (The monthly salary of a sergeant in the Japanese Army at the time was 30 yen; thus, the prostitutes made over 25 times more!)

The second can be found in depositions taken from three Korean civilian employees of the Japanese army, who stated the following: In the battle zones of the Pacific War, the Korean comfort women we met were all either volunteers, or women who had been sold by their parents. If the women had been victims of coercion, all the Koreans both young and old would have risen up in rage, and regardless of whatever retaliation, killed the Japanese (from Composite Report on Three Korean Civilians, List No. 78, dated 28 March 1945, “Special Question on Koreans” in the U.S. National Archives).

We also attach a research paper that describes the comfort women, and how misunderstandings about them originated in Japan and grew into an international problem of monumental proportions. It also discusses how the various nations involved in the Pacific War dealt with the sexual needs of their military personnel in battle zones. It is our fervent hope that you will read it and the other attachment, and, thus, arrive at an accurate understanding of the comfort women and their circumstances.

We appeal to your wisdom and sense of justice, as this is a matter of honor for us, as Japanese, and also affects the human rights of all concerned. We look forward to your reply.

Very truly yours,

OF HISTORICAL FACT

(簡訳)
貴殿は2007年1月31日、6人の議員とともに、「日本は若い女性を強制して性的奴隷である慰安婦とした事を認めて謝罪すべきである」という趣旨の決議案121号をアメリカ下院外交委員会に提出した。この決議案は昨年12月8日廃案となった、決議案759号と全く同趣旨のものである。われわれは、昨年9月28日に添付の手紙を全下院議員に送り、その決議案が全く歴史的事実を無視し、歪曲した主張の上に成り立つ極めて不当な内容であることを訴えた。しかるに、貴殿らが再び不当きわまる決議案を上程しようとしているのは、はなはだ理解に苦しむものである。直ちに撤回することを強く要求するものである。

もし貴殿が撤回をしないということであるなら、貴殿は添付した手紙でわれわれが提示した歴史的事実、すなわち慰安婦は当時合法的な職業として認められた売春宿で働いていた売春婦であり、軍の強制によるものは全くなかったという基本的な事実に反証してからにすべきである。

特にわれわれが強調したいのは、われわれが手紙で引用した米軍の2件の公式記録、UNITED STATES OFFICE OF WAR INFORMATION, Psychological Warfare Team, Attached to U.S. Army Forces India-Burma Theater および Composite Report on three Korean Civilians List No.78, dated 28 March 1945, “Special Question on Koreans” (U. S. National Archives に記述された「”慰安ian-thumb1.gif婦”とは売春婦に過ぎない」「月平均で1500円の総収入を上げ(債務者の)マスターに750円を返還する(筆者注:日本軍曹の月給は30円、したがってその25倍稼いでいた)」、「太平洋の戦場で会った朝鮮人慰安婦はすべて志願か、両親に売られたものばかりである。もし女性達を強制動員すれば老人も若者も激怒して決起し、どんな報復を受けようと日本人を殺すだろう」(朝鮮人軍属の証言)などの情報は、正しくないということを貴殿は証明する義務があるということである。さもないとアメリカの公式記録を貴殿は最初から価値なき虚偽文書とみなしていることになるからである。

慰安婦とはどのような存在であったのか、何故いわゆる慰安婦問題が日本で起こり、それが国際的な話題となったのか、そして大きな誤解が生じたのか、また戦場における性は各国でどのように処理されていたのか、などについて一つの論文をご参考までに添付する。これ等の資料をよく検討され、慰安婦の真実の理解を深められることを切望する。

われわれ日本人の名誉がかかった問題であり、また関係するすべての人達の人権にかかわる問題でもある。貴殿の良心を信じて、誠意あるご回答をお待ちするものである。

China is trying to turn America into a political colony of China like they are doing in Australia.
