Japan Fingers Foreigners As Potential Terrorists

The Japanese government is introducing a new anti-terrorist program in the coming months. From now on, the 6.7 million tourists and other foreigners visiting their country will be finger printed and photographed in order to assist the immigration people fight terrorism. According to immigration official, Takumi Sato, this “will help keep terrorists out of the country.” As of this date, there has never been a single terrorist act committed by a foreigner in Japan. Of course, Japanese terrorists have committed acts of violence within their own country as well as in other areas of the world. Perhaps, this is an example of “much ado about nothing” except to pester and insult foreigners visiting Japan.
