Quotes

Let me quote a passage from this column, written in January 2009: "The Palestinian death toll has topped 500 amid the continued Israeli offensive in the Gaza Strip , and the militant Islamist group Hamas is putting up do-or-die resistance. But the United Nations, which supposedly represents the 'conscience of the world,' remains silent as usual. The people's cries of anguish are rising from the blazing and smoking rubble."
...vice president and kingmaker who was dubbed the "godfather of the political community," once said of Nagatacho, the nerve center of LDP politics: "This place is different from the world you people belong to. Here, when the boss says 'right,' everyone turns right. When the boss says 'left,' everyone turns left."
