How Does One Say ‘Israeli Anime’ in Japanese?

Tuesday, November 4th, 2014

How does one say “Israeli anime” in Japanese? More than a few locals and most of the foreign service staff at Israel’s Embassy to Japan are going to find out very shortly.

For those readers familiar with Miyazaki, Israel’s newest and most novel effort at outreach to the Far East will entrance and amuse.

For those who have no idea what Miyazaki is, it is best to simply click on the video clip below – the first of seven to be produced — and watch. (Ed. – Turn on the closed captioning so you know what they’re saying.)

‘Shalom Chan’ hops in and out of the colorful, airbrushed animated series to provide quick facts about Israel for the viewers as the animated sisters, Saki and Noriko take their trip through the Holy Land.

Embassy spokesperson Ronen Mezdinni told Ynet the feedback from the project has been “unprecedented” and said the video has received “massive media attention all across Japan. The main goal is to showcase the lighter and original aspects of Israeli society all the while paying homage and respect to Japanese popular culture.”

Japanese pilgrims have been coming to Israel for many years. This is the first time, however, the foreign ministry has made a concerted effort to attract tourism from Japan, whose heritage is ancient, like that of Israel.

Assad Destroys the City of Nawa

Friday, June 13th, 2014

This morning someone sent us a horrifying video from Syria, of people just shooting down and torturing their fellow Syrians on the street, seemingly at random, all the while screaming ‘Alahu Achbar”.

I’m not going to link to it. It is simply too horrible.

Instead, here is a video, captured by IDF security camera of Assad destroying the city of Nawa in Syria on May 16, 2014. It is interlaced with an amateur video that captures the destruction from a close up perspective.

Islamic Jihad Threatens Israel – in Hebrew (+Video)

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

The Islamic Jihad terror organization, responsible for firing the heavy barrage of rockets at Israel over the past 24 hours, published today (Mar. 13) a clip threatening Israel – in Hebrew, under the title “Al-Quds Brigades threaten the state of occupation in Hebrew from inside one of the tunnels.”

The terrorist is allegedly sitting under a rocket pad with rockets aimed at Israel.

“To the coward Zionist army, we at the Quds Brigades are ready for you invasion. If you come you have no choice – you are dead…”, the terrorists reads from a page in garbled Hebrew.

“To the government of Zionist terror, who wish that our rockets will cease [to be fired] against your rockets. Find the moderation.”

“To the Israeli public – do not put your lives as hostages to the rule of your leaders. We invite you to exit our country and find your own,” the terrorist offered the citizens of the State of Israel.

A large portion of the message was not intelligible.
