現時点での移住に関する管理人の考え方

KANAさん こんにちは
お尋ねにお答えします。

まず、現在のご家族の体調不良は特にないということですので何よりです。
配偶者の方が、最近眠気が強くなっているとのことですが、単に勤務先が神奈川県下から都内に変わっただけですぐにそのような変化が生ずるとは思えません。別の要因を考えるべきでしょう。

今後の選択肢として
@ (子ども達の将来を考慮し)国外移住
A 国内にまだ移住するにベターな場所があればそこへ移住する
B 今の場所(神奈川県中央部)で放射能やその他リスクに細心の注意を払って生活する
の三つを挙げておられます。

現在、ご自身でなく、家族全員についてどのような被ばく回避策を講じておられますか。

被ばく回避には、吸気被ばくと飲食物による内部被ばくと、注意すべきは大別して二面ありますが、これらは「注意している」と言う人の中でも千差大別です。

KANAさんが現住地でどこまで被ばく回避策を講じておられるかわからないと、Bの選択の実行可能性が判断できません。

@、Aについては、配偶者の方はどんなご意向でしょう。海外移住を含めて、配偶者の方の移住転職には何も障害はないのでしょうか。

Aについて、管理人は移住適地を示すことはできません。

被ばく経過について私が気付いたことを少し書くと
A 今お住いの神奈川県中央部は、2011/3/15早朝から数日、強いプルームに襲われました。このプルームの襲来に伴って広い範囲で吸気被ばくが生じたことが神奈川の人口動態が悪化している原因だと考えています。

KANAさんのご家族は、2011/8に現住地に越されたわけですからこの時のプルームには遭遇していません。

B しかし、管理人が町田市の南部で行った現地調査の結果などによると、ガンマ線は東葛などに比べて多くはないものの、アルファ、ベータを含めた線量率はそれなりに高いものがありましたから、お住いの地域について汚染がごく少ないとも判断するのは困難です。

C 福島第一原発事故の数日後に新潟県から都内に移ったとのことですが、新潟県の滞在地の近くでは3/15に強い被ばくをしたとみられる方もおられます。

3/15に都内に移っておられれば、この時の被ばくも考えられます。

D KANAさんは、福島第一原発事故後二回出産を経ておられますからこれまで体調不良を感じたことはないという点も理解できます。出産は最大のデトックスという人もいます。

E 福島第一原発事故前後の配偶者の方の行動は、KANAさんと同じでしょうか。配偶者の方が、福島第一原発事故前後に変わることなく勤めに出ておられ、食事等にも特に注意を払っておられなかったのであれば、被ばく症状が出る可能性はあります。

それと二人のお子さんについて、どのような被ばく回避策を講じてこられたのでしょう。

移住を検討する以前に日ごろの被ばく回避策をしっかりと講ずることがなによりも急がれるように感じています。

・・・・・

追加の情報について管理人の感じたところを書きます。

配偶者の方は、福島第一原発事故前から神奈川県中央部にお住まいであるとすると、201/3/15から数日の強いプルームの吸気被ばくが懸念されます。特に被ばくと関連が深いような症状は見当たらないようですが、「目が霞む」症状は被ばくに関連した症状として現れることもあります。体調の変化には特に注意が必要でしょう。

何も被ばく回避策らしい対策をせずに来て二人のお子さんが健康であるのであれば、大変幸運だと思います。子供たちがこれから長じる過程で健康のカギを握っているのは母親です。

まず飲食料品の選択が最も重要と考えます。

汚染地域に住むと外部被曝も内部被曝もありうることがこれで分かります

外出時のマスク着用は、大原則です。熱中症にならないよう気を付けながら。

洗濯物は、放射性物質の飛散、飛来がある地域では、室内干しが望ましいでしょうが、屋根のある場所に干した洗濯物が放射性物質で強く汚染されるような場所はそもそも居住不適です。千葉県観光地で例がありました。

管理人は、一に産地、二に品目の原則で海外産に消費食品のウエイトを移しています。どこの生協がどうかとの詳細な情報は持ち合わせていません。

飲料水は、選択がとても難しいです。管理人は飲用にはボトルウォーターを使っています。

移住については、被ばく回避策を実行に移しながら配偶者とともに検討してください。どなたかに体調不良が出れば、速やかに実行しなければならないこともありうるでしょう。検討だけは進めておいたほうが良いでしょう。海外移住は国内移住よりも格段にハードルが高いです。

個人用の放射能測定器は、感度と価格からGC10Aが管理人のお勧めです。格納用の箱とパソコンへの接続ケーブルを合わせて購入すると約1万円です。これは携帯には向きませんが、衣類や書籍の汚染を調べるのには使えます。USB端子に接続してバスパワーを使用することにより24時間稼働させることもできます。

携帯性を重視するならRADEXONEかSOEKS。ともに18,000円くらい。RADEXONEは作りが華奢ですが電池の持ちがよいです。RADEXONE、SOEKSともに家庭内ではUSB端子に接続して電池の消費を抑えることができます。RADEXONE、GC10Aはパソコンに接続してグラフを描かせることができます。

気づかないまま放射性物質を家に持ち込んでいる人は多いはず

最近、放射性物質の不意打ちを食らう事例が伝えられています。

2018年04月27日
信じがたい すさまじい汚染

2018年06月14日
子供向け古本が0.82μSv/h

上の二つの例は、主婦が放射性物質汚染についての知識を持ち、個人用放射能測定器を保有していたことから汚染が判明したものです。特に、最初の例は母親の汚染チェックの習慣が目覚ましい成果をあげました。

上の二つの例ともにガンマ線主体の測定結果ですが、0.3μSv/hとか0.5μSv/h、さらには0.8μSv/hという兵士も逃げ出す高い水準を検出しています。

これらの事例では、特にその家庭が被ばくリスクを容認するつもりで特定の場所を訪ねたり、物品を購入したりしているわけではありません。警戒はしつつも、結果的に被ばくしてしまったということです。

二つ事例とも、世間的にはまれな観光行動や物品購入ではありません。その点を考慮すれば、全く気付かないまま被ばくし、放射性物質を家に持ち込み家庭内の放射性物質汚染を強めてしまっている家が相当数あるでしょう。知らぬが仏でいられるうちはいいですが、そのうち本当の仏が出るかもしれません。

ガンマ線に注目すれば、空間線量率は下がっています。
2011/4/1をスタート地点として考えると、ヨウ素131のガンマ線は3か月ほどで減衰しきりましたし、セシウムについて残存放射線量を計算すると、セシウム137:100cpm、セシウム134:100cpm、セシウム計:200cpmであったものが、2,618日経過した2018/6/1には、セシウム137:減衰後残存 84.73cpm、セシウム134同:8.95cpm、計:93.68cpmと計算されます。

大まかに言って半分になっています。ですから放射能が少なくなったという一般的な理解には間違いはありません。ガンマ線による外部被ばくだけを見れば0.15μSv/hと0.12μSv/hでは、大差ありません。線量率が高ければ高いほどがん発症確率が高まるのは科学的に実証されていますが、これは確率的な発現になりますから0.12μSv/hの環境にいた人がまずがんを発症し、0.14μSv/hの環境にいた人がそれよりも遅れて発症するということはあり得ます。

ですが、放射性物質はガンマ線を出すもの、ガンマ線源だけではなく、アルファ線やベータ線を出すもの、アルファ線源やベータ線源があり、特にアルファ線源は半減期の長いものが多いのです。プルトニウムがアルファ線源の代表格として知られています。

2018年05月18日
あの方たちはどうされているだろう

日本では、アルファ線源やベータ線源は汚染源としてはほとんど取り上げて議論されていませんが、世界的に見ればアルファ線源やベータ線源を警戒する声が強いのです。米軍がバルカン半島、イラク、シリアで使用している劣化ウラン弾はアルファ線源、ベータ線源であり、その影響は半永久的に続きます。

東京で米国人家族の家財を汚染したアルファ線源は何だろう

上の記事には、福島第一原発事故後に東京から米国に帰国した家族が持ち帰った家財から強いアルファ線、ベータ線が検出されて家財を廃棄することになったという情報があります。

管理人は、アルファ線、ベータ線も検出しうる測定器を読者の援助を得て購入し、各地で測定した結果を還元しています。その結果によれば、ガンマ線以外にはほとんど検出できない場合もあれば、全体の放射線数のうちでアルファ線、ベータ線の計が半分近くを占めることもあります。地域、直置きする場所によって測定値は大きく変動します。

これまでの最高値は、ともにMAZURで測定して250cpm程度でした。ガンマ線、アルファ線、ベータ線の合計ですが、μSv/hに換算すると0.8μSv/h程度です。

冒頭にあげた事例の2番目ではガンマ線だけで0.82μSv/hですから、びっくりする数値です。新松戸の歩道の縁石や市川市の高台の塀の上のかけらを家に持ち込んだと同然です。ガンマ線だけでなく、アルファ線、ベータ線も含めて測定すれば、管理人が関東南部を歩き回って測定した最高値を上回る値が出ることは確実です。

Study: Traces of radioactive contamination found in homes of six Hanford workers
Originally published June 14, 2018 at 6:00 am Updated June 14, 2018 at 12:14 am

The levels are low, but if some microparticles are inhaled or ingested by nuclear-site workers or their families, the radioactive dust is a “potential source of internal radiation exposure,” the study’s author writes.

Dust samples from the homes of six Hanford nuclear-site workers in the Tri-City area contained traces of radioactive contamination, according to a study published this month in the Journal of Environmental Engineering Science.

The levels are low, but if some microparticles are inhaled or ingested by the workers or their families, the radioactive dust is a “potential source of internal radiation exposure,” writes Marco Kaltofen, a civil engineer whose peer-reviewed study also found radioactive particles in dust samples in nuclear workers’ homes near the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and the former Rocky Flats Plant in Colorado.

The particles were found in samples collected over a period of years from the homes of the nuclear workers and those of their neighbors. Inhalation of the particles, which included uranium, thorium, plutonium and americium, can increase the risk of cancer.

東京で米人家族の家屋内にあった家具が、アルファ線源やベータ線源で廃棄しなければならなかったほど汚染されていたのです。

ハンフォードの労働者の家庭の汚染どころではないのです。

放射能問題を勉強したという人でも、まだまだ汚染を甘く見ていませんか?

被ばく回避策の実践の用意のない方は、このブログはご覧にならないほうがよいでしょう。読んで知識が増えただけでは、被ばく回避にはなりません。ストレスが増えるだけです。

シリア・アサドインタビユー なぜ欧米がアサド政権を目の敵にするかがわかります

長時間の多岐にわたるインタビューの記録です。敵国が注視する中で自国の立場や同盟国との関係について、アサドが自らの考えを明確に述べています。イスラエルに対する攻撃は自国内のイスラエルの手下であるテロリストの討伐が先、イランがその意向なら自国内に基地を設けることもありうる、米国は歴史的な嘘つきの国などと厳しい指摘もしています。
対イスラエルについて、自国の利用可能な能力の範囲で応戦する、としており、シリアの軍事能力はロシアからの武器導入で日を追って改善していますから、イスラエルに対する強い威嚇になっています。

President Assad: Damascus to Agree with Iranian Military Bases in Syria If Asked by Tehran
TEHRAN (FNA)- Syrian President Bashar al-Assad underlined that his country would agree with setting up Iranian military bases in Syria if Tehran ever extends such a demand.

"There’s nothing to prevent establishment of such bases as long as Iran is an ally as is Russia," President Assad said in an interview with the Arabic-language al-Alam news channel on Wednesday.

Asked if he would agree to the establishment of such bases, he said even his country might raise such a demand from Tehran. "We could ask for the existence of such forces to support us. Iran has never asked and does not have an interest except in fighting terrorism. But the evolution of the war made it necessary to develop the nature of this presence."

"This happened as far as the Russians are concerned. In the beginning, Russian support, like Iranian support, was different from what it is today. The support for terrorism has developed internationally and globally when the Syrian Army confronted those terrorists, and with that Russian and Iranian military presence developed. At a certain stage, we found – with the Russians of course – that the existence of air bases was necessary to provide air support to the Syrian Army. And now, if we find, in cooperation, coordination, or dialogue with the Iranians, that there is a need for Iranian military bases, we will not hesitate. But now, Iranian support in its present form is good and effective," he added.

Asked by al-Alam about the recent events in Southern Syria, President Assad said, "To put it simply, after the liberation of al-Ghouta, it was suggested that we should move south. We were faced with two options, as is the case in all other areas in Syria: reconciliation or liberation by force. At this point, the Russians suggested the possibility of giving reconciliation an opportunity, similar to what happened in other areas, in order to restore the situation that prevailed before 2011. In other words, for the Syrian Army to be deployed in that area, which is an area of confrontation with the Zionist enemy. And of course the terrorists should leave the area. This proposition suits us. Up till now, there are no concrete results for a simple reason which is Israeli and American interference; for they put pressure on the terrorists in that area in order to prevent reaching any compromise or peaceful resolution. That is how the situation stands now."

Asked if the Syrian government has decided to move towards a military operation or towards reconciliation in Southern Syria, he said, "No, contacts are still ongoing between the Russians, the Americans, and the Israelis, while nobody is communicating with the terrorists, because they are mere tools, and they implement what their masters decide ultimately. This is what happened, i.e. there was an opportunity to reach reconciliation, but the American and Israeli interference prevented that possibility."

"For the Americans, there is a general principle they follow in dealing with any problem in the world. The only price they ask for is absolute hegemony, regardless of the issue and the place. Of course, we shall never provide that price; otherwise we wouldn’t have fought this war for years. We have been fighting for the independence of Syrian decision-making, for the Syrian homeland, and for the unity of Syrian territory. As for Iran in particular, let me be very clear: the Syrian-Iranian relationship is a strategic one not subject to a deal in the south or in the north. This relationship, in terms of its implications and results on the ground, is linked to the present and future of the region. Consequently, it is not subject to the price tags of the international bazaar. Neither Syria nor Iran has floated this relationship on the international political bazaar for it to be subject to haggling. The proposition was made by the Israelis with the objective of provoking and embarrassing Iran. At the same time, this comes in line with the international propaganda campaign launched against Iran regarding the nuclear file. It is not a separate issue; for everything happening now is linked to Iran in order to create an international position against it. As for us in Syria, the decision concerning our land is an exclusively Syrian decision. We are fighting the same battle, and when we have a decision concerning Iran, we will talk about it with the Iranians and not with any other party," Assad said.

In response to the question that "there is the Military Operations Command (MOC) which hasn’t stopped its operations since the beginning of the war on Syria about eight years ago. It is working and is still active, and is directly linked to the Israelis. But we have noticed recently that it has been reactivated, and there are more communications. Mr. President, does this mean that the Syrian state is practically moving towards a military decisive action in the south regardless of the consequences, whether things reach a stalemate or not? Is a decisive action in the cards for the Syrian leadership,", he said, "No, MOC has nothing to do with this decision. MOC has been linked to the presence and the role of the terrorists since the beginning of the war on Syria. That’s why it existed: in order to lead them militarily. Consequently, the continued existence of this operations room means the continuation of the role given to these terrorists, i.e. they are equipped and prepared to carry out more terrorist acts. MOC is linked to the terrorists and not to the role of the Syrian state. Our role has nothing to do with it. Our decision has been clear from the beginning: we will liberate all Syrian lands. As to when to move south, north, east, or west, this is a purely military issue. But regardless of MOC, we have moved towards the south and we are giving the political process a chance. If that doesn’t succeed, we have no other option but to liberate it by force."

Asked how Syria wants to deal with the confrontation in the south as there are the Americans, the Russians, the Iranians, the Israelis, and Hezbollah, Assad said, "You are talking about two axes: one supporting terrorism, and represented by the US, Israel, and some flunkies in the region including some Arab and non-Arab states, and an anti-terrorist axis. The first axis supports terrorism and seeks hegemony, while the second axis seeks independence. So, there can be only one result for this confrontation, i.e. the victory of one of these axes. At least, as far as the anti-terrorist axis is concerned, it will not give up the process of cleaning Syria and the region of terrorism and will not give up on the unity of Syrian territory."

"As to the other axis, will it change as a result of the reality on the ground? Let’s wait and see. But in terms of substance and convictions, it will not change, while in terms of the political practices dictated by reality and the facts on the ground, it might," he added.

Asked if the Americans will leave al-Tanf, Assad said, "The Americans say they are ready, but everyone knows that the Americans are historically professional liars in politics. So why should we believe them? Also, we have to wait and see."

Asked about the events in Jordan, he said, "In fact, the only information we have is what we hear in the media. In any case, we wish Jordan stability, not chaos, because the latter will have a negative impact on us."

Asked why Israel would agree now to the return of the Syrian Army to the borders and to the occupied Golan, Assad said, "Certainly, neither conviction, morality, nor international law means anything to the Israelis. Since the beginning of the war, particularly when it started to have a clear military nature on the southern front in particular, the Israelis used to shell Syrian forces continuously, and consequently provide direct support to the terrorists. Israeli artillery and aircraft are the terrorists’ artillery and aircraft. That applies to Jabhat al-Nusra of course. Nothing is going to change this Israeli approach. As far as we are concerned, Israel’s approval had no role at all. Despite Israeli support to the terrorists, we have been doing our job, and the Syrian Army is fighting its way towards the southern front, and has liberated a number of areas within the limits of its capabilities. So, with or without its approval, the decision is a Syrian one, and this is a national duty we shall carry out."

Asked if a return of the Syrian Army is better than having resistance in the Golan, for instance, he said, "I think the two options are bad for the Israelis. Both of them are bad. Sayyed Hasan Nasrallah has repeatedly talked about Syria’s relationship with the resistance and a Syrian role in the resistance. So, how would the Israelis choose between two bad things for them?"

Asked by al-Alam that how the Syrian government would deal with the terrorists coaxed by Israel in the future, Assad said, "This is true; we cannot put everyone in the same basket. There are different reasons for moving in this wrong direction; and these people have wronged the homeland and every Syrian citizen. Ultimately, they are the children of this homeland, and we all bear responsibility for this problem, not only those who have done wrong. When crime, for instance, becomes widespread in a certain country, the whole society bears responsibility for this crime, not only the security agencies or the criminals themselves. The first thing that should be done is to accommodate these people. Second, we need to address the root causes which led to this case of weak patriotism. The causes here are many and complicated, and the scope of this interview doesn’t allow for all of them to be mentioned."

Asked about Israel's threats of more attacks against Syria, he said, "Basically, we haven’t stopped responding. First of all, we haven’t stopped fighting terrorists, and at the same time we haven’t stopped responding to Israeli aggression within the capabilities available to us, militarily and technically. Moreover, the more these capabilities improve; the response will be better and higher. But in fact the strongest response to Israel now is to strike the Israeli army existing in Syria which consists practically of the terrorists."

"What is the link between air defense systems and the terrorists acting as infantry on the ground? This was an Israeli order. It was an Israeli-American order because it is the same thing. So, they are Israel’s army inside Syria; and the first strike against Israel, politically, militarily, and in every other area, is to strike Israel’s terrorists inside Syria, whether they belong to ISIS, al-Nusra, or the other groups linked to the Israeli plan and strategy," he added.

Asjed if Israel escalates, are you prepared to respond more forcefully, Assad said, "This is what’s happening. It is escalating, and we are responding. Ultimately, we are fighting the war within the capabilities available to us, and we are doing our best within these capabilities. A response does not need a political decision. I stress that responding or not responding is not a political decision. It is a national decision, and it was taken from day one. But implementing this decision depends on what we can do militarily and not politically."

Asked about the Russian hesitation to supply Syria with S-300 missile defense system, he said, "You know that military action and military considerations are part of political considerations. Consequently, a statement, even if it is of a military nature, carries at the same time political messages. So, why did the Russians say that they want to send or not send? This is a statement that the Russians should be asked about because it might be part of their political tactics. As to the military aspect of the statement, which concerns Syria, it’s not our custom to talk about the weapon which will be delivered or not delivered. The evidence was that the weapons used in response to the last two aggressions, the tripartite aggression and after that the Israeli aggression, were not announced by Syria. We traditionally do not announce cases of a technical military nature."

"Even if the S300 missiles will be provided or not provided, we will not say that they were delivered to Syria. A weapon is used when it must be used."

Asked if there is a possibility that Syria has developed certain weapons, Assad said, "This remains a possibility. In any case, the result is the same: weapons shouldn’t be talked about until they are used. Weapons announce themselves only when they are used."

Asked about the nature of Iran, Russia and Syria alliance, he siad, "If we talk first about the Syrian-Iranian part, for 40 years, and in the different conditions that the Middle East region has gone through, this alliance remained solid. So, there is no reason to say that it is temporary or otherwise. The new element in the war on Syria is the Russian element, and that’s why this tripartite alliance came into existence. Our relationship with Russia is now about seven decades old. Despite the fluctuations and the fall of the Soviet Union, the rule of President Yeltsin, and the deterioration of these relations to a large degree for us, it has never reached the stage of reversing this relationship with Syria. Russia continued to deal with Syria as a friendly state, and we have imported everything from Russia, including weapons, during the different stages of the sanctions imposed on Syria. It is not in the nature of the Russians to build temporary or self-serving alliances or to sell out on relations in order to get deals done. The relationship is definitely a strategic one, but the political statements allowed for these speculations."

"These statements also aim at sending messages in different directions. Maybe, sometimes the language or the choice of particular terminology might not be helpful and might take the statement in a different direction at odds with the content of the statement. This happens from time to time. However, these statements shouldn’t be taken out of context: the Russian view of the relationship with Iran is a strategic one. As for Syria, the Russians do not interfere in Syrian affairs. If they have a certain opinion, they raise it with us and say that in the end, the decision is that of the Syrian leadership and the Syrian people. This is a constant principle for Russia. Therefore, the alliance is a strategic one, and if there are differences, such differences happen within the Syrian state, and you see differences within the Iranian state and within the Russian state. It is natural for us to differ on daily tactical details, for why conduct a dialogue if we agree on everything? We meet extensively in order to reach agreement."

Asked if this tripartite alliance is being consolidated, he said, "Of course. This is dictated by reality, interest, and international changes that make it necessary for this alliance to be consolidated. As long as the other axis supports terrorism, and as long as we, together with Iran and Russia, feel the danger of terrorism, not only in Syria, but also on all these countries and on the whole world, and as long as Syria, Iran, and Russia realize the importance of abiding by international law, these facts make the existence of this alliance necessary."

Asked about remarks that Syria will get a price if the Iranians leave Syrian territories, Assad siad, "As I said in the beginning, as long as this relationship is not floated in the bazaar, they cannot offer a price, and the answer will be clear. That’s why they don’t dare suggest this price. This issue was raised by different countries, including Saudi Arabia for instance, at the beginning of the war, and not only at the beginning, but at different stages. The proposition was that if Syria cut its relationship with Iran, the situation in Syria will be normal. This principle is basically rejected by us."

"The relationship with Iran was the basis for every proposition; and Saudi Arabia’s position on this subject is public. I’m not revealing a secret."

Asked about the nature of Iranian presence in Syria, he said, "The term adviser is sometimes used in a broad manner, i.e. these advisers have been with us, through the longstanding relationship with Iran, even before the war, because the military relationship is close. When a military formation moves to a fighting position, the adviser becomes a fighter. So, the word can be used in different senses. There are certainly Iranian advisers in Syria, and there are groups of Iranian volunteers who came to Syria, and they are led by Iranian officers. Iran has fought with and defended the Syrian people. It offered blood. That’s why when we say “advisers” this is a generic term, but this doesn’t mean that we are ashamed of any Iranian presence, even if it is official. But we use the word “advisers” because there are no regular Iranian fighting units in Syria."

"Exactly. There are no battalions, or brigades, or divisions. First, we can’t hide them, and then why should we be ashamed of that? When we invited the Russians legally to come to Syria, we were not ashamed of that. And if there were an Iranian formation, we would announce it, because such relations need agreements between the two states endorsed by parliaments. Such relations cannot be concealed."

Aked if Syria invited Iranian advisers to come, he said, "Of course, from the beginning we invited the Iranians, and then we invited the Russians. We needed the support of these countries, and they answered the call."

Asked if there are no Iranian bases in Syria, Assad said, "That’s correct."

Asked about the reason for lack of Iranian bases, he said, "There’s nothing that prevents the existence of such bases as long as Iran is an ally as is Russia."

Asked if Iran requested the existence of such bases, Syria would agree, he said, "If we ask. We will ask them to agree. I mean that we could ask for the existence of such forces to support us. Iran has never asked and does not have an interest except in fighting terrorism. But the evolution of the war made it necessary to develop the nature of this presence."

"This happened as far as the Russians are concerned. In the beginning, Russian support, like Iranian support, was different from what it is today. The support for terrorism has developed internationally and globally when the Syrian Army confronted those terrorists, and with that Russian and Iranian military presence developed. At a certain stage, we found – with the Russians of course – that the existence of air bases was necessary to provide air support to the Syrian Army. And now, if we find, in cooperation, coordination, or dialogue with the Iranians, that there is a need for Iranian military bases, we will not hesitate. But now, Iranian support in its present form is good and effective."

Asked why he has not visited Iran so far, although he visited Russia more than once, Assad said, "That’s correct. In fact, there was a scheduled visit to Iran a few months ago, and it was postponed and not cancelled. It was postponed because of an emergency in Syria related to the development of battles. There is certainly no reason which prevents such a visit, and I’ll visit Iran hopefully soon on the earliest opportunity. This is natural, but the issue is logistic, no more, no less."

Asked about the US move to relocate embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem, he said, "The Palestine context, since 1948 up till now, has been a complicated one, because the regional context is complicated. Of course, it is complicated because the colonial West, which is particularly supportive of Israel, has always created elements which aim at one single thing. First, to drive to desperation the Arab citizen who is historically attached to the cause of Palestine and who has always considered it a pan-Arab cause that touched him even on the national level."

"The other objective has been to distract the Arab peoples together with states or societies in general to marginal causes so that they do not have time to think about Israel. And they have succeeded to a great extent, most recently through the so-called Arab spring which has aimed at destroying the political, military, and psychological infrastructure of Arab societies."

"Nevertheless, recent development have proven that the Arab people is still conscientiously attached to the cause of Palestine. As for Syria – since it has been part of these plots to undermine the Arab condition in general – first, for Syria to support the cause of Palestine, it should first of all destroy the Israeli army in Syria. Restoring stability in Syria, striking terrorism, and foiling the Israeli plot in Syria is certainly part of supporting the cause of Palestine. The support might be indirect with direct consequences, but these direct consequences are linked to the internal Palestinian condition. We shouldn’t forget that the Palestinians are divided between groups which resist Israel and are genuinely linked to the cause of Palestine, and other groups which are against the resistance and support surrenderist and defeatist peace, while there are other groups which use resistance as a title in order to achieve their political objectives under the slogan of religion. This is of course the Muslim Brotherhood’s approach."

Asked if he is prepared to offer whatever the resistance asks of him, whether in the form of political, military, or any other form of support, he said, "Politically, we haven’t changed. The Palestinian question for us is still as it was ten years ago and decades ago. It hasn’t changed. As to what we can offer, this has to do with two things: first, Syria’s current capabilities; and there’s no doubt that the priority is given now to cleaning Syria of terrorism. Second, it has to do with the Palestinian condition and the parties with which we can deal within the Palestinian arena."

Asked about his view about to resistance fighters in Lebanon and families of martyrs and the wounded, he said, "When all these groups of resistance get together to defend Syrian soil and Syrian citizens, including the Lebanese resistance and the brothers who came from Iraq some of whom reproached me for not mentioning them by name, I take this opportunity to stress that there are brothers from Iraq to whom we give the same weight of any resistance fighter who came from any other country."

"There are also the families of resistance fighters who came from Iran and sacrificed their blood in Syria. We should put all these in the same basket next to the Syrian martyrs, fighters, and their families. To those I say that all the letters, the words, the sentences, and the whole of literature are much less than a single drop of blood. Therefore, words are of a much lesser value than what they have offered. What’s more important is what history will write about them."

"In fact, when we talk about writing history, we need to highlight that history needs a strategy and needs tactics, but the fact remains that strategy without implementation on the ground has no value. It remains mere thought which we might include in books and essays. But the reality is that these individuals in these countries, this group of resistance fighters, not politics, write history. I would like to use the answer to this question to express to them all my love, respect, and appreciation, and my reverence to the fighters, the wounded, and martyrs, and to all their families who are courage incarnated and who sent these individuals to Syria to defend it and fight terrorism, so that these families become models of morality and principles for present and future generations."

Asked if Syria has called for Hezbollah's withdrawal, he said, "The battle is long and ongoing. When we talk about this tripartite alliance – and if we consider it a quadruple alliance when we add Hezbollah, we talk about the tripartite alliance in terms of the states included, but in the end Hezbollah is a basic element in this war – the battle is long, and the need for these military forces will continue for a long time. When there is a need, and when Hezbollah, Iran, or others believe that terrorism has been eliminated, they will tell us that they want to go home. As Seyed Hassan said, they have families and daily interests, which is normal, but it is still early to talk about this subject."

Al-Alam journalist's question that "there are still areas under the control of terrorism and areas under occupation. At the same time, regretfully, some Arab countries, and here I am talking particularly about Saudi Arabia, announced that it is ready to send forcers to Syria. On the other hand, a few days ago popular tribal units were formed to resist occupation. Are these really popular resistance units? Do they receive support from the Syrian government? Does this mean that the army cannot liberate those areas, and that’s why it is asking for the help of the tribes? What is the nature of this issue?", was answered by Assad that "there are different forms of this resistance which appeared a few years ago. In the beginning they were fighting ISIS before they started to fight the occupiers. They were against ISIS in the central and eastern regions, and there were cases where they appeared in other regions which were not given media coverage and about which we hear sometimes through information and indications".

"Now, this situation has started to expand. So, it’s not one single case. There are a number of cases which might be individual sometimes, or in the form of small groups not affiliated to an organization. In any case, our position as a state has been from the beginning to support any act of resistance, whether against terrorists or against occupying forces, regardless of their nationality, i.e. American, French, Turkish, or Israeli. We support these resistance forces based on our national role as a government."

Asked about Saudi Arabia and sending Saudi forces to Syria, he said, "First, when we talk about a state, we should assume that such a state can take decisions independently. That’s why we will not talk about the role of Saudi Arabia. You better ask me about the American decision on this issue."

Asked if Syria will cooperate with the countries which have collaborated in destruction of the country during the war, Assad said, "Reconstruction in Syria is not a cause for concern for us. It needs two factors: first, the human factor which is more important than the financial factor. When a country like Syria possesses the human factor, the financial cost will be less when it comes to reconstruction. This is self-evident, and we possess all these factors despite the fact that many competent and qualified Syrians have immigrated because of the war."

"But we still have the capability to start reconstruction. And the evidence is clear now, for the state is moving forward and reconstruction has begun. As to money, the Syrian people have financial capabilities, capital, most of which is not in Syria, but outside Syria. But there is capital waiting for reconstruction to begin, so it will begin investing. On the other hand, there are the friendly countries which have capabilities and have the desire; and we have the desire to have them participate in reconstruction, so that they benefit and we Syrians benefit from this process. In the end, we do not need those countries and we will never allow them to be part of reconstruction."

"Financial resources are not everything. As I said, this is available. There are different sources in the world and in Syria for capital."

Asked if he wanted to talk about two cases, the most difficult case or incident that he has encountered during these years, Assad said, "It is natural, at the heart of the military battle, for the best and worst cases to be linked to the development of the military battle. If I say that the worst cases were when terrorists used to control a certain area, this is self-evident, but it is related more to specific battles, particularly when the area is strategic or the city is big with a large population. Consequently, the impact will be much greater psychologically and in terms of morale."

"But there was an ongoing situation which we are still living and we must think about: when a martyr or a group of martyrs fall, and this is ongoing on a weekly basis for us, we must think that a family lost a dear one who cannot be compensated. He might be compensated by achieving victory at a certain stage, but on the family, psychological and human level, you cannot compensate a dear one lost to a certain family, or maybe a friend. This is a very painful situation which we have lived and continue to live. This will not stop until the war itself stops. But there were painful cases at the beginning of the war, when you see this huge lack of patriotism. They were perhaps a minority, but a large minority, of individuals who were prepared to sell the homeland and trade it together with their principles, if they had ones, in return for money or a certain interest, in addition to a certain percentage of extremism."

"On the other hand, there were victories, particularly when victories started in the city of al-Qsair in 2013, and culminated in the city of Aleppo in 2016, that was the beginning of the major victories. That was followed by Deir Ezzor, and today we are living the joy of liberating Damascus and its countryside. This is a situation we have all lived through, and you were with us, and I am sure you feel the same joy."

Asked if he has felt tired at a certain moment and during war, he said, "This question might be raised in a personal manner. When I am faced with a personal situation as an individual, I might feel despair after a few months. I might feel tired or bored or I might want to move to a different situation, or give up. That is possible."

"Of course, as an individual, but the case you are proposing is not personal, it is national. Imagine yourself in a different condition, perhaps building something on your own. You feel tired, but when you see a large number of people helping you build it and share the same determination, you forget the tiredness."

"Now we are in a national situation. We are talking about millions of Syrians. When you see a shell striking and victims falling anywhere in Syria, you feel frustrated. But when you see life being restored to the same area after one hour, your psychological condition changes. When you see that the electricity worker, the oil worker, the teacher, the employee, are moving side by side with fighters, moving without despair and without tiredness, how can you feel tired? This is a collective condition not related to me as a person. It has to do with our human condition when we are together as a society. How do we live? This defines whether you are tired or not. Would the Syrian society have arrived at this stage of despair and surrender, I would certainly have been with it. I would have surrendered because I do not have the necessary elements for steadfastness. This is self-evident."

子供ができないことより自分の命を心配したほうが良いかも

2018/6/14に寄せられた投稿を掲載する。引用開始。

湯河原に住む知り合い(60代男性)がつい最近前立腺がんの手術をしたと聞きました。 震災前に脳血栓を患っていたはずです。 この人の家族は外食が好きでスーパーの総菜が食卓に並ぶことも多かったと思います。 さらに海沿いですから魚が手に入りやすかったでしょう。

定年後は運動や庭仕事など肉体労働はせず、もともと食が細かったので 免疫もなかったのではと思います。 奥さんは数年前に目の病気で手術しています。

脳をやられてからがん発症のパターンをよく聞くような気がします。

親戚(80代)が震災後に脳梗塞を患い、がんで亡くなっています。 前職のお客さんの家族(横浜の男性)は震災後2年経つか経たないかの頃に がんであっという間に亡くなり驚いたのを覚えています。

東京南部に住む親戚が、娘の友達は皆子どもができず悩んでいると数年前言っていました。 すると他の親戚が環境汚染のせいじゃないかと返していて 今思えば放射能汚染に気づいていたんじゃないかなと。

他にもありますが最近こういう話をよく聞くようになり じわじわと危機が迫っているのを感じます。 より一層引き締めなければと思いました。

・・・引用終わり・・・

「東京南部に住む親戚が、娘の友達は皆子どもができず悩んでいると数年前言っていました。」

統計と地域情報が符合します。福島第一原発事故後、この地域でガーデンウェディング参加者の家族に二人甲状腺がんを発症した事例があるともうかがっています。

放射性ヨウ素の吸気被ばくは、甲状腺異常に直結するほか、不妊に結び付くようです。福島第一原発事故後、関東の広い地域でほとんどの女性たちに生理不順が生じました。

Was Einstein racist? Travel diaries reveal shocking truth about physicist’s views on Asians
The reputation of the world-renowned theoretical physicist and humanitarian Albert Einstein may be tainted in the wake of the recently published travel diaries that unveil his racist views, in particular on the Chinese.

Published by Princeton University Press, the diaries date back to 1920s, the time when the famous Austrian physicist was extensively traveling with his wife Elsa. In late 1922 they embarked on a five-and-a-half-month journey to the Far East and the Middle East. They traveled to Singapore, China, Japan, and briefly sojourned in Palestine before concluding the whirlwind tour in Spain.

In manuscripts, he apparently never intended to publish, Einstein shared his travel impressions about art, politics, science, philosophy and ultimately, racial equality. In striking contradiction with his later statements, the Nobel Prize laureate wrote down thoughts on racial stereotypes, insisting that some races not only could not equate to others, but were inferior to them.

He described the Chinese as “industrious, filthy, obtuse” and “a peculiar herd-like nation,” that, according to Einstein, posed threat to other nations. “It would be a pity if these Chinese supplant all other races,” he wrote. “For the likes of us the mere thought is unspeakably dreary.”

With the entry going shockingly against Einstein’s reputation of a civil rights advocate, the public release of the diary could have an effect of two black holes colliding.

Born in Germany and of Jewish descent, Einstein condemned both the rise of the German National Socialist Party, and later all forms of racism, defining it a “disease of white people.” In 1946, during his speech at Lincoln University in Pennsylvania, focused on fighting racism, he claimed that “being a Jew” himself he could “understand and empathize with how black people feel as victims of discrimination”.

Ze’ev Rosenkranz, the senior editor of the published diaries, told the Guardian that Einstein’s diary entries on the alleged intellectual inferiority of the Japanese, Chinese, and Indians stemming from their biological background “are definitely not understated and can be viewed as racist.”

With many people looking up to Einstein as both a moral role model and one of the greatest physicists of all time who introduced the theory of general relativity, the revelations on what Rosenkranz called “a clear hallmark of racism” could now tarnish the popular science icon.

こんなに遅れている日本

ロシアは消火用航空機、ウオーターボンバーを持っています。ウオーターボンバーが水を撒いている真下から見ています。


ちょうど車外に出て写真を撮っている警官がいました。びしょ濡れ。


慌てて車に戻ろうとしますが、もう水は降りません。雨じゃありませんから。


ここの火災で出動要請したんですね。水のない場所だった? 公的施設だったのかもしれません。


警官は、気を取り直して現場写真を撮りました。


Oops: Plane drops 40 tons of water on traffic police in Moscow suburb by mistake

以上がロシアです。片や日本! 若い方を被ばくさせてこんな人海戦術をしなくても、ウォーターボンバーで一発のはずです。海外では、他の国にウォーターボンバーの出動要請をすることが普通に行われています。
