About the chain email concerning Islam in Japan
            My name is mentioned in the email and I am quoted as saying that there is a mind frame in Japan that Islam is
            a very narrow minded religion and one should stay away from it.   It is taken out of context.   What I said
            about Islam in Japan is on the website below.

           All the information in the email is malicious falsehood.
