Lebanon receives Interpol arrest warrant for disgraced Nissan boss Carlos Ghosn – reports
Lebanon has received an international police arrest warrant for former Nissan chief Carlos Ghosn, the state-run National News Agency reported on Thursday.

The ‘red’ notice calls on authorities in Lebanon to arrest Ghosn, who managed to jump bail in Japan, where he is charged with embezzlement, and to flee to the middle-eastern country.

Pilots detained as Turkey opens probe on ex-Nissan chief Ghosn's Japan escape via Istanbul – reports
Turkish authorities are determined to find out how former Nissan and Renault chief Carlos Ghosn managed to jump bail in Japan, where he is charged with embezzlement, and flee through Istanbul airport, Turkish media said.

Seven people, including four pilots, have been detained after the Interior Ministry launched a probe into the allegations that the fugitive ex-CEO had made it from Osaka to Beirut, Lebanon, passing through Istanbul, Turkish media said on Thursday.

A former chairman and CEO of Renault-Nissan-Mitsubishi Alliance, Ghosn is charged in Japan with embezzling the company's assets and lying to shareholders about the size of his salary.

He fled the country days ago, after being put under house arrest. Many details of Ghosn's sudden escape are still unclear, but it is believed he traveled to Lebanon on a private jet, and a private security company may have been involved in getting him out of Japan.

A Brazilian native of Lebanese origin, Ghosn has citizenship of Brazil, France and Lebanon. There were conflicting reports about which passports were in his possession during his escape. According to NHK, Ghosn managed to board a flight with a spare French passport.

The businessman denies all allegations against him. Upon landing in Lebanon, which does not have an extradition treaty with Japan, Ghosn said he has no faith in the “rigged Japanese justice system” and accused the authorities in Tokyo of not respecting his rights.

French State Secretary for Economy and Finance Agnes Pannier-Runacher told BFM TV that Paris would not have extradited Ghosn if he had arrived in the country, because “France never extradites its nationals.”

長年の習慣、慣習なんてもろいものです 捨てても何も痛痒を感じないものばかり

管理人は、日本人としての習慣や慣習をほとんど捨てました。最近は、状況の変化に応じてふっ切れる年配者も多いようです。一度捨てて、その後に何が生まれてくるかですね、大事なのは。

今日届いたお便りから。

今年は餅なし、お刺身なし、魚なし、お雑煮なし、おせち料理なしの普通の食卓でした。ついでにうるさい正月番組を流すテレビも消して・・・。

 元旦の朝食は、いつもように中華食材のトウチとフニュウを入れた味噌汁風の御汁とオーストラリア産のごはん、を基本に、好きな洋楽を聞きながら・・・。

 長年の習慣の縛りから抜けることは、案外たやすいことでした。
 今年は人間関係の縛りからも抜けることになりそうです。

・・・・・

若い方は、意味のない習慣にとらわれず、自分流の習慣を。世の慣習に縛られて貴重な時間を費やすことはありません。

歩く楽しさ 歩ける喜び 2019〜2020冬

徘徊時に見る木々に今年は実が見当たりません。タラヨウ、ナンキンハゼ。ドングリはたくさん落ちています。

台風15号、19号の影響もあるでしょう。ナンキンハゼはその影響かもしれませんが、でも、タラヨウの実がないのはなぜ?

2020/1/2に訪れた誉田駅に近い公園のクロガネモチには、赤い実が一つもありませんでした。この実は鳥が食べますので、いずれはなくなるのですが、本当に一粒も残っていませんでした。

台風のせいなのか、1月に入ったためなのかはわかりません。
全体的に木に元気がなくなっている。そんな風に感じます。

このところ海外ニュースが多かったり、電磁波の実験があったりと体を動かさなかったことを反省し、2020/1/2は、風もなく外出しました。

新しい団地と少し古い住宅街との境目を歩きます。少し古い町のほうが植栽が多くて楽しめるのです。静かな町を歩いていくと労働着の専門店の看板が。最近このチェーンでよく買っています。少し見ていこうと向かいますが、道が行きどまり。ショートカットで道に出ようと空き地に出て草地を歩いていくと、民家のベランダでお兄さんが土いじりをしています。ブルーシートに載せた泥や土の塊のようなものを選別しながら大きなプランターのようなものに移しています。

何か大事なものを植えようとしているんだろうか?

近寄ってみると、土や泥ではありません。お兄さんに聞くと「アイ」ですと教えてくれました。はーん、これが藍なんですか。

藍はタデ科の草本です。お兄さんが選別していたものは、藍玉にする前の「スクモ」と呼ばれるもののようでした。

このお兄さんは、畑で藍を種から栽培し、収穫し、発酵させ、自宅の工房で染めています。

このお兄さんの作品です。右側のシャツは縫い糸が白いままです。縫い糸は化学繊維のため染まらないのだそうです。

きれいな色でしょう。肉眼で見た時より色が濃く出ているかなと感じます。

こちらは絞りです。風が吹いて揺れたためにピントが合っていません。


工房は手作りだそうです。コンパクトな小屋にふつふつと発酵した藍を入れた容器が備えられ、電気毛布に包まれています。発酵に最適な温度に保つためです。

工房の中は極めてシンプル。匂いもほとんどない。薬品らしきものも見当たらない。味噌蔵の小屋のような感じ。ただ、出入りのドアが大きい。洗浄を外でやるからです。

このお兄さんは、何でもできますね。大工仕事、農業から微生物培養者も。これからはマーケッティングやデザインも学んでほしいところです。

化学物質過敏症の方には、正藍染め(しょうあいぞめ)は、良いかもしれません。藍の発酵作用で液体がアルカリ性になり、それが空気と触れて化学反応を起こしてあの色を出すのだと聞きました。薬品は使いませんから。

台風の被害はこの地域でもすさまじかったようです。現在。


2019/8月、この写真は上の写真の反対側から写しています。


ヤドリギだけが緑を残しています。この家の大谷石の塀も剥離が生じています。大雨の時は大谷石の塀のそばには寄らないようにしましょう。


神社にもお詣りしました。

Senior Iraqi MP Lauds Iran's Assistance, Blasts US Betrayal
TEHRAN (FNA)- The occupying US government that has helped the terrorist groups against Iraq is now raising baseless allegations against Iran which has supplied arms to the Arab country and helped it with fight against the ISIL, a senior Iraqi legislator said.

"The US occupied Iraq in 2003 and gathered all terrorists around the world there and shed the blood of Iraqis by bomb-laden vehicles and economic pressures," Abdul Amir al-Dabi, a member of al-Fatah coalition at the Iraqi parliament, told the Arabic-language Baghdad al-Youm news website on Wednesday.

He reminded of Iran's help to Iraq in liberating its land from the ISIL, and said that Tehran supplied weapons to Baghdad to fight against the terrorists while Washington backtracked from its promises and did not remain loyal to many military contracts with Iraq although it had received the money before.

The US drones on Sunday bombarded a Hashd al-Shaabi base near the border with Syria in Iraq's Western province of Anbar, a Hashd Shaabi statement said.

The attack took place in the evening when the US drones bombarded the base of Hashd Shaabi's 45th Brigade near the border town of al-Qaim, the statement said.

The bombardment left tens of the brigade's members killed and wounded.

On Tuesday, thousands of Iraqis participated in the funeral ceremony of Hashd al-Shaabi martyrs killed in the US Sunday attack against their position, as they moved towards Washington's embassy in Baghdad.

The Arabic-language al-Mayadeen news channel reported on Tuesday that participants in the funeral ceremony declared a sit-in in areas near the US embassy and some of them erected tents in the area.

According to the report, a large number of Iraqi people, carrying the flags of Iraq and Hashd al-Shaabi, are moving towards the suspension bridge that leads to the US embassy from al-Janaderiyeh region.

They also carry placards to condemn the US aggression against Hashd al-Shaabi and Iraq's sovereignty, calling for the expulsion of the American ambassador.

The participants in the funeral ceremony also warned Iraqi legislators that if they do not approve a bill to expel the US forces, they will not allow them to enter the parliament anymore.

After the Iraqi protestors attacked the US embassy in Iraq, the American officials took positions against Iran by blaming the country for organizing the rallies but Tehran has denied any involvement.

The issue isn’t a US strike “lacked strategic purpose.” The issue is the US killed Iraqis we had no right to kill, in their own country (which we should not be in at all). And calling them an “Iranian militia” instead of Iraqis further reveals a bad position on this war danger.

‘We can break America, but won’t lead Iran to war’ IRGC commander says after US embassy standoff
Iran’s Revolutionary Guards are not leading the country into a war with the US, but will not hesitate to wage one if forced to, the commander of the elite force said amid a row over US embassy in Baghdad.

The US blames Tehran for orchestrating mass protests at the US embassy in the Iraqi capital, which involved a partial takeover of the massive compound. The protest was led by Kataib Hezbollah, an Iran-backed militia group, in response to US airstrikes on its forces. Speaking on Thursday, Brigadier General Hossein Salami said the Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) was not moving towards an open war with the US, but would not shy away from one.

“We are not leading the country to war, but we are not afraid of any war and we tell America to speak correctly with the Iranian nation. We have the power to break them several times over and are not worried,” the commander of the IRGC said, as cited by the Tasnim news agency.

Kataib Hezbollah ordered its supporters to pull back from Baghdad’s Green Zone on Wednesday, claiming a ‘psychological victory’ over Washington. The angry crowds, which acted under the Iraqi government’s non-involvement stance, didn’t break into the main embassy buildings during the two-day standoff.

The US response to the security crisis was to deploy additional troops to Iraq.

Iran's Supreme Leader: 'If Anyone Threatens Us, We Will Unhesitatingly Confront and Strike Them'
Iraqi protesters withdraw from US Embassy in Baghdad
Paramilitary leaders have ordered their supporters to leave the heavily fortified US Embassy compound in Baghdad, Iraq, as American troops reinforced the besieged facility.

Live footage from RT’s video agency Ruptly showed protesters with Hezbollah flags withdrawing en masse in their vehicles. Some lingered behind at the scene of the clashes, where tear gas and stun grenades were reportedly fired again on Wednesday. By Wednesday evening, however, the US military stated that all had departed.
Hordes of protesters descended on Baghdad’s American embassy – located inside the heavily fortified ‘Green Zone’ – on Tuesday. Incensed by Sunday’s US airstrikes against the Kataib Hezbollah militia, the crowd lit fires and pelted the embassy with stones. A contingent of US Marines arrived on Tuesday night to bolster security.

Kataib Hezbollah is an Iranian-backed Shi’ite militia, allied with an umbrella group of similar militias known as the ‘Popular Mobilization Forces’ (PMF), who are supposed to be under the command of the Iraqi military. The PMF on Wednesday told the crowds at the embassy to withdraw, claiming that their “message has been heard,” and to allow the Iraqi government to “preserve the prestige of the state.”

However, the call to pull back was initially been ignored by a number of the protesters. While some stood down, a faction of hardliners remained behind until Wednesday evening.

Washington has blamed Iran for orchestrating the embassy riots, and for directing militias like Kataib Hezbollah to attack its forces in Iraq. Tehran denies all responsibility, with Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei telling Trump that “your crimes in Iraq, Afghanistan… have made nations hate you.”

With the embassy showdown turning into another proxy battle between Iran and the US, Iraqi Prime Minister Adel Abdul Mahdi has sought to balance relations with both sides. The PM called the US airstrikes a “vicious assault that will have dangerous consequences,” but warned protesters against any aggression towards foreign embassies.

Iran's Supreme Leader: 'If Anyone Threatens Us, We Will Unhesitatingly Confront and Strike Them'

Iranian supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has condemned US airstrikes on a militant group in Iraq.

"The Iranian govt & nation & I strongly condemn the US's malice", Khamenei said on his official Twitter account.

Khamenei.ir @khamenei_ir 6:08 PM - Jan 1, 2020
Look at what the US is doing in #Iraq & #Syria. They’re taking revenge on Hashd al-Sha’bi for defeating ISIS.
Since #Hashd crippled & destroyed ISIS -which the US had created- they’re taking revenge. The Iranian govt & nation & I strongly condemn the US’s malice.

He continued on by saying that if anyone threatens Iran, "we will unhesitatingly confront & strike them".

Khamenei.ir @khamenei_ir 6:41 PM - Jan 1, 2020
If the Islamic Republic decides to challenge & fight, it will do so unequivocally. We’re not after wars, but we strongly defend the Iranian nation’s interests, dignity, & glory.
If anyone threatens that, we will unhesitatingly confront & strike them.
