- History of the Japanese intrigues -
1900 Uthida Rinhei of Kokuriukai (Japanese secret society) and
Toyama Mitsuru of Roninkai (another secret society) conducted
'inside Moslem investigations' to this end. When the Japanese-Italian
pact was signed in 1936 the scheme was transferred from the Japanese
FO to the War Ministry.
Leaders of Kuk. and Ronin. Sent a 'converted Mohammaden' - Kawamura
Kyodo to 'investigate things Moslemic' - 30 year project of his,
during which he managed to 'stir up Mohammaden uprisings and independent
movements whenever he saw an opportunity'. In the late 20's another
agent, Hidari Tozan, was dispatched by Kok.
This were under the guise of 'goodwill missions', however the
real and covert aim was 'colonisation of Islamic countries'. This
project was a national one as the Education Ministry based findings
from Secretary of State, authorised textbooks on Islam so Japanese
students could gain a 'comprehensive knowledge regarding this
religion and its followers.

'For these and simultaneous investigations, the gaimusho had
in 1910 a special budget of 1,300,000 yen, this figure increased
some six-fold in 1935 - 8,680,000 yen'

"Japanese-Moslem co-operation is like the shine of the sun and
* 1939 Construction of big mosque in Yoyogi Yamamachi and sent
invitations to Muslim delegates to attend the opening, impressive
displays of Japanese naval and military might to assure Muslims
they are ready to assist them if need by and for those 'ill-disposed,
the missions are also to hint that unless they change their policy
calamity will befall them'.
