韓国大興奮、北海道教組「竹島は韓国領」

 【ソウル=黒田勝弘】日韓が領有権を争っている竹島(韓国名・独島)について、日本の北海道教職員組合が「韓国領だ」と主張していると韓国で話題になっている。文部科学省は最近、高校の学習指導要領解説書をめぐって「竹島は日本の固有の領土」と再確認したばかりだが、北海道は鳩山由紀夫首相のおひざ元だけに、韓国では関心を持たれている。

 韓国の有力紙、朝鮮日報(28、29日付)が東京発で伝えたところによると、北海道教組(日教組系)は昨年11月、機関誌兼学習資料の「北教」で「歴史的事実を冷静に読めば韓国の主張は明確に事実に立脚している。島根県などが竹島領有権を要求する行為は日本の侵略と植民地支配を正当化するきわめて不当な行為だ」と、韓国の立場を支持しているという。

 これは昨年7月、中学学習指導要領解説書が、竹島の名前を挙げ日本の領土として領土問題を教えるよう指導した後のことで、教育現場では指導要領に反し韓国の主張が正しいと教えるように指導したものとして、韓国社会では歓迎している。

 これについて北海道教組幹部は、同紙とのインタビューで「教壇では対立を教えるのではなく、平和教育の範囲内で韓国の立場を生徒たちに十分に教えることが重要だ。近隣諸国には配慮すべきだ」と語っている。

Residents fight Corps plan for Guam range

Sixty-one-year-old Lourdes Sgambelluri Pisarri remembers learning to swim in the Marbo Caves.

When she was 6, her grandfather, Marcello Sgambelluri, took her down to the freshwater caves, where she saw lobster and shrimp crawling at the bottom of the pool, and the stalactites and stalagmites jutting from its walls.

“It’s freshwater that abuts the ocean. It’s one of the most miraculous things that you can have,” Pisarri said. “A freshwater pool, and the ocean is right there next to it.”

But in a few months, access to those caves may be limited, and the lands where Pisarri’s family farmed may be tainted with runoff from a decontamination facility and shooting range to be built there by the military, as part of their buildup projects, Pisarri said.

It’s about 1,000 acres of ancestral land that’s been in the Sgambelluri family for almost 100 years, Pisarri said. Now, the military is planning to construct a Marine training facility there.

“It’s really a travesty of justice,” she said.

Pisarri, who currently lives in New York, said she received a letter from the military earlier this year, asking if it could survey her lands and perform EPA studies there, she said.

In response, Pisarri wrote a letter to the director of the Joint Guam Program Office, John Jackson, saying she didn’t want the military to place one foot on her property. She copied the letter to President Obama, Guam delegate Madeleine Bordallo, Gov. Felix Camacho, Guam Sen. Judith Guthertz, and retired Adm. Ed Kristensen among others, of whom only Guthertz, chairwoman of the Legislature’s buildup committee, responded to the letter, she said.

“Bottom line is, I did write to the military to tell them — in no uncertain terms — that I didn’t want anybody stepping one foot on my property,” Pisarri said. “I also told them I don’t want one coconut tree destroyed that my grandfather planted 90 years ago.”

Instead, Pisarri suggested the military use their own unused lands within the Andersen Air Force Base, but JGPO officials have told her EPA regulations prohibit the use of those lands.

“Frankly, [JGPOs public information officer Capt. Neil Ruggiero] stated that much of the military land was saving the lives of various animals, as an conservation area for birds,” Pisarri wrote to JGPO.

“It unnerved me that you would first consider displacing people who have lived on our land for many years.”

A statement provided by Ruggiero to the Pacific Daily News last week reiterated the Defense Department has tried to utilize its own property for the military realignment, but must follow federal environmental laws and planning processes to determine the best locations for the facilities and ranges necessary for the military realignment.

“The military is also considering feedback collected through discussions with village mayors, Government of Guam officials, and the Legislature. Through this process it has been determined that certain facilities, such as training ranges, will not fit on DoD properties without possible negative effects on Guam’s citizens,” Ruggiero said. “We have also learned that it may be wise to develop property near existing bases to allow functions to be grouped together in one location and eliminate the need to travel from one range or training area to another. This will ease impacts, such as traffic, on the surrounding community.”

But Pisarri and other residents have said land leasing, monetary compensation, or the promise of providing land elsewhere are not options they would consider because most residents in the area acknowledge the land’s value.

For example, Pisarri’s brother, Joseph Sgambelluri, said the land in the Sasayan area facing the ocean is ideal for them to build family homes for their children to settle down.

“This area here is just too nice, too beautiful to use as a military site,” added Virginia Stadler, another resident of the valley. “There are people that are thinking of building their homes ... to pass it on to their children and grandchildren.”

Plus, Pisarri said the Chamorros are still waiting to be compensated for the way they were mistreated during World War II.

“My parents and the rest of the people on Guam have not yet been compensated by the United States,” she said, adding the Japanese, the Jewish, the Native Americans, the Filipinos, and residents of Saipan have all been compensated after the atrocities they’ve faced throughout history.

“Why are the people of Guam being discriminated [against]? Why have they not been compensated?” she said.

But perhaps there’s hope for the Sgambelluri family.

Guthertz has said she and other Guam senators have obtained assurances from the JGPO executive director, retired Marine Corps Maj. Gen. David Bice, that condemnation is not part of the plan for obtaining buildup lands. However, in a recent television appearance, Jackson said that all options including condemnation are “on the table,” creating further confusion.

Thus, Guthertz will be holding a public hearing tomorrow to allow Guam residents to voice their concerns.

Joseph Sgambelluri will be among those present at the hearing to share their comments. Pisarri said her brother will be reading out her letter at the hearing, since she’s thousands of miles away.

“I’ve been fighting the fight for a while now. I just know that people need to voice their opinion,” Pisarri said. “We don’t mind bringing men to Guam, but this is an overtaking.”


福沢諭吉が説いた「脱亜論」に
〈我れは心に於て亜細亜東方の悪友を謝絶するものなり〉という著名な文章がある
その「悪友」こそが支那と朝鮮である。アジア一般ではなく、これら2つの隣国と親しくするのを止めることによって日本の自立が可能になると福沢は述べたのである。
日本の今後の国益は台湾、太平洋地域と親交を深める外交をしてゆくのが最も得策なのではないか、東アジア共同体だとか現在の状況において米軍に出て行ってもらい事故が起きた時だけ助けてもらう、誰がそんな同盟を結びますか、外交とは友好や善隣ではない。国益の確保そのものである。

私は、今の台湾人は所詮、支那人だと思いますよ。

日本人と組むより、本土の支那人と組む事を望んでいるのが大半です。

信用は出来ません。
