 Israelis and global terrorism go together like lox and bagels. With Japan now in the market for offensive weapons what a better way to market Israeli arms to Japan. Was Noda hanging around Chinese factories the past few months? -Wayne Madsen

A grandson of a former Israeli ambassador to Japan has been arrested in the Asian country over involvement in a series of recent arson attacks along Tokyo train routes.

Police in Tokyo recently detained Izaya Noda, the grandson of Moshe Barter, Israel’s ambassador to Japan between 1966 and 1972, the Israeli news website Ynet reported on Sunday.

Noda, 42, has only admitted to setting an East Japan Railway Company electricity substation on fire on August 23, police said, adding, however, that he denied involvement in the other six incidents, which occurred during August and September, and disrupted train services and caused damage.

Security cameras at the electricity substation in Shinagawa ward showed a man throwing a burning object into the facility on August 23, and then leaving the scene by bicycle.

Tokyo police said they searched Noda’s home and found a bicycle similar to the one seen on the video. They also found a plastic bottle containing a flammable liquid.

Investigators quoted Noda as saying that he “could not tolerate Japan railways for consuming massive amounts of electricity.” They said he was likely involved in other arson attacks, which took place at a wide range of locations, including in Shibuya, Nakano and Meguro wards as well as the city of Kokubunji.

A photo of Noda’s Israeli ID card has been published by Japanese media outlets, indicating that he has an Israeli mother named Dorit, and a Japanese father named Tatsuya.
