As a German, I can say that Andreas Kolb’s “opinion” is surely not written by an Austrian. We share the same culture and we don’t use terms like “yellow peril” in the German-speaking part of Europe. Nobody here would claim that German Chancellor Angela Merkel “broke a law” with regard to the planned elimination of nuclear power. This is nonsense.

Nobody with knowledge about Germany would say that German “children are indoctrinated to hate nuclear energy.”

Kolb’s letter appears to have been manipulated by a Japanese power company. The Japan Times should be careful that it is not misused for propaganda purposes.

The opinions expressed in this letter to the editor are the writer’s own and do not necessarily reflect the policies of The Japan Times.
