TOKYO (AP) — A Japanese envoy in Jordan expressed hope that both Japanese hostage Kenji Goto and a Jordanian pilot held by Islamic militants will return home “with a smile on their faces,” as questions rose Tuesday over the government’s handling of the crisis.
How Japan is fighting back at Jihadi John with MEMES: Images of ISIS executioner cutting kebab meat and posing with a selfie stick go viral as nation shows it won’t be silenced over new hostage threat.
- Jihadi John seen threatening to Haruna Yukawa and Kenji Goto this week
- Demanded $200million within 72 hours or said he would kill hostages
- As deadline approached Japanese began creating internet memes
- Darkly comic images shared online as a mark of defiance against ISIS
Showing the familiar sight of fearful men kneeling in orange jumpsuits in the desert, the latest footage of Jihadi John caused despair across the world when it appeared this week.
In the latest clip, the Islamic State enforcer demanded a $200million ransom to free Japanese men Haruna Yukawa and Kenji Goto, giving them just 72 hours to live.
But as the deadline approached the Japanese public responded with a show of defiance by creating dozens of darkly comic internet memes mocking the deranged ISIS killer.
In the pictures, which have been widely shared online, the masked murderer is seen using his knife to carve kebab meat, taking part in a cooking show, and holding a selfie stick.
The vast majority of the posts are written in Japanese, but one in English reads: ‘Tomorrow will be sad but it will pass and ISIS will still be a big joke. You can’t break our spirit.’

This video was made back in 2011 but not much has changed.
Abenomics has done very little to stimulate the economy. Higher taxes make it harder for people to pay their bills.
The result? more homeless.

Australia kicked him out. Canada don’t want him. Britain don’t want him. Japan are probably going to let him waste money on a flight and turn him back at the airport…and I’m sure he will be running out of places to travel to at a fast rate by the looks of things.
Loser extraordinaire Julien Blanc could have saved a lot of time by joining Japanichiban Friend Finder and would not have been banned form entering so many countries.
The guy is a caveman. Hitting girls over the head and dragging them back to your cave is so pre-historic Julien.
Pick-up artists? What is that?
Why bother making an ass of yourself unless you are a jackass.
His website claims he can show how to “make girls BEG to sleep with you after SHORT-CIRCUITING their emotional and logical mind”.
In one video posted online by his organisation, Mr Blanc says: “In Tokyo, if you’re a white male, you can do what you want. I’m just romping through the streets, just grabbing girls’ heads.”
More than 150,000 people signed a petition demanding action by Mrs May to prevent his events taking place.
The petition was started on the Change.org website by a woman using the pseudonym Caroline Charles.
She said in a statement: “I’m very pleased that we have achieved the outcome we wanted.
“That the petition garnered so much attention in such a short period of time only highlights the everyday, ongoing relevance of sexism and misogyny. “
Mr Blanc has previously been refused entry to Australia and Brazil.
The Home Office spokesman said: “The Home Secretary has the power to exclude an individual if she considers that his or her presence in the UK is not conducive to the public good or if their exclusion is justified on public policy grounds.
“It is longstanding practice that we do not comment on individual exclusion cases unless they are made public by the excluded individual.
“This Home Secretary has excluded more foreign nationals on the grounds of unacceptable behaviour than any before her.”
