From time to time last year acquaintances asked me about the relationship between Abe Shinzō and the Unification Church.
I told the truth--that I knew nothing and would not trust anything that I could read about it.
Itō Takuya, whoever he may be, has has no such reticence. In an article on Abe Shinzō and the abductees posted to the Electronic Journal of Contemporary Japanese Studies he sets what have to be new boundaries for what can be accepted as valid sourcing in academic-type work on Japan.
Shūkan Gendai and Shūkan Posuto as primary references - wow.
You Unification Church rumor junkies, a festival awaits.
