The maritime terrorist group Sea Shepherd actitivists Peter Bethuen was arrested by Japanese maritime authoriteis today when the whaling research boat returned to Japan while bringing the criminal in custody from the Antarctic ocean. Bethune, a New Zealand citizen who jumped aboard the researchl boat Shonan Maru No. 2 on February 15, has been charged with trespass. Japanese Coast Guard officials began questioning him about earlier destructive activities against the Japanese whaling vessel.
Bethune was a skipper of the Sea Shepherd powerboat Ady Gil, which collided with the Japanese whale ship and damaged. Bethune leapt aboard Shonan Maru from a jet ski before dawn on February 15. Bethune demanded payment of the damage of his powerboat, even though it was damaged by his intentional collision, lead to a piracy.
The tragic one sided destruction by the Sea Shepherd activism is founded on the theory of the supremacy of their own culture and there will be no room of compromise and the group resort to the violence targeted to the Japanese whaling culture. The attack by the Sea Shepherd contains inherent racism against whaling culture and unfortunately supported by the opinions and prejudices of the bigoted minded communities in the Oceania.There are some peopole who stick to the myth of the white man's supremacy still survives there.
The maritime criminal should severely be punished by the Japanese auhority after the thorough investigation with due process of law and the Rule of Law may prevail to bring out peaceful solution in the cultural culash of civilization and eradication of maritime piracy and terrorism.
