“I’m going to kill you, you **** !!”On 7th July, 2010, "The our yard Dokdo keepers”(우리마당 독도지킴이) representative Kim Ki-joong assaulted Japanese Envoy to South Korea Shigeie Toshinori(重家俊範) with a 10-centimeter's rock twice in Korea Press Center in Seoul. Mr.Shigeie avoided the attack, but Mayumi Horie, his translator, was hit in the hand and taken to a nearby hospital.
I saw it on Japanese News, and it was ugly and appalling. But it was rare opportunity for Japanese viewers to see Japanese major TV news clearly reiterate Japanese government’s stance on Takeshima. Japanese media ignores Takeshima unless Korean do something stupid.

Japan's Inalterable Position on the Sovereignty of TakeshimaMore on Japanese FNN News on 7th July and on 8th July.
- In the light of historical facts and based upon international law, it is apparent that Takeshima is an inherent part of the territory of Japan.
- The occupation of Takeshima by the Republic of Korea is an illegal occupation undertaken on absolutely no basis in international law. Any measures taken with regard to Takeshima by the Republic of Korea based on such an illegal occupation have no legal justification.
(Note: The Republic of Korea has yet to demonstrate a clear basis for its claims that, prior to Japan's effective control over Takeshima and establishment of sovereignty, the Republic of Korea had previously demonstrated effective control over Takeshima.)
According to Donga News, while police investigation, he cried out that he wanted to be a Ahn Jung-geun（安重根）, a terrorist who shot and killed Ito Hirobumi(伊藤博文), but he failed.
“안중근처럼 그 ○○ 죽여 버리고 역사에 남고 싶었는데 못했다”According to Joong-An Daily, a South Korean foreign ministry spokesman apologized to Japan.
“Minister Yu made a phone call to Ambassador Shigeie to express his regrets,” Foreign Ministry spokesman Kim Young-sun said in a briefing yesterday. “What happened last night was completely unacceptable and we are feeling very regretful about it.”IMO, it is Korean government herself who are agitating its own people to act on unacceptably by its own barbarised acts of invading Japanese island Takeshima without any documented evidence which support their claim that Dokdo/Takeshima have been Korean territory since 512 A.D. !?
