The Japan Times ran an interesting article today on how the FBI tried to give money to Hamas in the late 90s to see if they would use it for "terrorism." Apparently, Hamas gave some of the money on to an orphanage. It is nice to see the FBI giving money to orphanages through Hamas. Who would have thought it possible?
And on a completely different note, congratulations to Sky Perfect for finally choosing to screen an Irish international football match on Saturday. The four San Marino (ok, Sammarinese) residents of Tokyo must be out of town this weekend. So just after midnight on Saturday, I will be able to watch the game that decides whether or not we're all painting our faces and heading off to Portugal next summer. I almost want to take back everything I have said about Sky Perfect being a gang of trumped-up, xenophobic, parasitic, money-grabbing voles.
Oops...we're having an earthquake now and I'm on the 6th floor.
