No explanation on how their acts would overthrow Japan? Seems like much of it was in other parts of the world. Beetle B.

No one ever said terrorists had to make sense. --82.2.117.234 19:33, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

Ehh, the above was me, sorry, forgot to log in.--ScottishPinko 19:37, 12 January 2006 (UTC)

I think Fusako Shigenobu's logic was to work with existing terror networks, in solidarity with existing campaigns, rather than "starting from scratch." They were always a bit fuzzy (as far as I can tell) with how they planned a Japanese/world revolution, or what they wanted the post-revolutionary world to look like. -Danspalding 00:50, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

More unbiased language please. Although politics is turbulent, I took liberty to change "murderers" to "members" because murder has negative (biased) rather than neutral and objective connotations.Aminatam 13:57, 23 February 2006 (UTC)

How could the JRA have been responsible for the 1970 JAL hijacking when the group wasn't founded until February 1971? Another source (http://japanfocus.org/113.html) credits this action to a different group, which would make more sense.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 66.138.132.149 (talkcontribs) 20:58, 8 March 2006.

Good point; the 1970 JAL hijacking was actually the work of the Japanese Communist League - Red Army Faction. However, Fusako Shigenobu, founder of the JRA proper, and several members were originally part of the Red Army Faction. The leadership of the RAF were on the plane that went to South Korea, and were out of the picture for years afterwards. This should be clarified in the article. -Danspalding 00:50, 9 March 2006 (UTC)

Under aliases is Holy War Brigade listed which is a pseudonym I don't believe a communist group would operate under. It is however a common problem that mentally unstable persons call the police after terrorist attacks and taking the blame on behalf of existing or even made up organisations. I strongly belive that this is one such incident. Good article, but no number of dead from the 1977 plane crash is cited. Neither any years on the last actions on the list.

BTW wasn't the two Lod attackers in '72 killed by israeli gunfire??? Did they really blow themselves up???.—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 84.210.117.113 (talkcontribs) 00:30, 30 March 2006.

Red Army-Faction, United Red Army, Japanese Red Army, Arab Japanese Red Army[edit]

Shigenobu left Japan as a leading member of the Red Army-Faction (which called itself a faction in 1969 , because it then saw itself as a part of the new-left Communist League or Bund), when this "army" was in a rather sorry state. Its founder and the 1969 leadership was jailed or in North Korea, around 200 members had been put in prison. Merger-talks between the new leader of the Red Army-Faction and the leader of the Revolutionary Left Wing of the Japanese Communist Party (Kakusa) may have begun. In April the Red Army bought weapons from the maoist Left Wing and in July both groups declared themselves to be The Unified Red Army , which was soon changed to The United Red Army (in the half year of its existence all this group really achieved was to self-destruct in an ugly massacre of a third of its members and in the spring of 1972 the Red Army in Japan was kaputt. Shigenobu left with very few fighters for Lebanon and most or all of them belonged not to the Red Army, but to a Kyoto group, Kyoto Bandits (Patricia Steinhoff).

Also refered to as the Kyoto Partisans —Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.43.175.109 (talk) 20:32, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

As far as I know Shigenobu called her group Japanese Red Army only after the Lod attack in May, 1972. She also used Arab JRA. Only there was no Red Army at home any more.--Radh (talk) 17:35, 12 August 2009 (UTC)

in the Lebanon[edit]

Why keep people reverting to "in Lebanon"?--Radh (talk) 07:55, 24 September 2009 (UTC)


Mitsubishi attack[edit]

that was done by the East Asia Anti Japanese Armed Front —Preceding unsigned comment added by 217.43.175.109 (talk) 20:41, 7 May 2011 (UTC)

members[edit]

there's a nice, practical table in the Japanese article that encompasses the activities and posterior activities of the group's members: [1] FoCuSandLeArN (talk) 21:08, 11 August 2012 (UTC)

Anti-Zionism[edit]

Are they against Jews and Rastas because it said Anti-Zionism (against Judaism and Rastafarian). Squidville1 (talk) 11:40, 5 September 2013 (UTC)
