"Earthquake and Japan  It is not Japan's demise that the earthquake has produced, but rather the possibility of its rebirth."

My comment:  Japan has been vicious with China and the USA for instance.  Christians have said that God is having the Last Word with Japan the way He did with Amalekites.  In I Samuel 15:1...."therefore harken thou unto the voice of the words of the Lord.  (2) Thus saith the Lord of Host, I remember that which Amalek did to Israel, how he laid wait for him in the way, which he came up from Egypt. (3) Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not, but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass."  Saul lost his favor with God because he spared what God told him not to.  God says too in Malachi 3:6  "For I am the Lord, I change not...."         (There it is!   This is not to say, however, we should not help Japan all we can.  It's just the Word of the Lord for cruel people then.
