A 42-year-old man suffered stab wounds to his back after being attacked by a man wearing a Spider-Man mask outside a church in Itabashi Ward….more...

spider-man210x260.jpg Also a famous news commentator here in Japan, Peter Barakan was attacked at church with mace this weekend in Tokyo. Being that Christians only account for 1% of the Japanese population, the statistical likelihood of have two attacks in Christian churches over two day here in low crime rate Japan is rare. These attacks are darn-right mysterious since the Japanese are the most disinterested in religion of any people on the planet and never have the concerns/motivations that mostly likely drove the four killing in two separate church attacks in Colorado in the USA in the past 24 hours.

    On December 8, 2007, at about 1:15PM, British TV Caster Peter Barakan (56) and four other men and women were sprayed with a substance similar to tear gas by an unknown male. The assailant escaped in a car. They were attending a monthly Christian church meeting in Tokyo Minato-ku Mita, and suffered pain to the eyes, but were said to have recovered. The Mita Police are currently searching for the male as a case of assault with intent to inflict bodily injury.
    According to sources, the assailant had hidden his face with a black cap. The five had assembled for a speech to be given by Barakan starting at 2PM.

  2. Speaking of spiders…
    You don’t have to go to expensive private art college to be an artist. Just look at cobwebs. A spider made that out of its butt.
