Today's (Feb 6, 2019) article titled "Free community talk aims to 'Let it never happen again' " — about U.S internment camps for the Japanese, the other enemy. In the article, Clarence Moriwaki stated "We were at war with two other axis powers, but there was no forced removal of German and Italian background." Google this information and you will find that over 10,000 Germans and Italians in the U.S. were interned. Now we had Mr. Moriwaki speaking at our library on Friday at 2 p.m.on World War II history. Does he know history?

This morning I personally went to TDN office for more information. I had read that the Japanese interned were all awarded $20,000 each in about 1990. A German in a U.S. internment camp for Germans sued the U.S. government in 1992 for $20,000 for each German. The U.S. Supreme Court denied his claim, saying that was only for the Japanese. 

Yes, Mr Moriwaki's goal on Muslims is commendable. The Muslims are peace loving people, but it appears to me Mr. Moriwaki's group does not understand the direction of The New World Order.
