First of alll, since Japan is not going to fall back on being an empire, this claim is more or less futile for the purpose of gaining the throne.
However, it does shed some light on some history.
I can understand that many claim, it doesn't add up, because he's claiming to be of the house of Abraham. But in reality, it makes more sense than
the "current" history, or to put it in different terms. It makes just as much sense, as current history does, in that regard.
And if there is anything that makes sense, it's the story about western societies selling "bad" powder to one side of a conflict, while selling good
powder to the other side.
And the tabet with the ten commandments? Can't say I take that literally, but I don't put it beyond anyone to have made a copy of something similar,
to claim higher origin ... although, I'd think that anyone who was "truly" an emperror, would probably claim to be the one who "gave it", rather than
the one who "receives" it. Which makes this claim quite original.
And about the 5 star? on this, he his perfectly correct. The 5 star, is the Morning star, or the "bringer of light", which is another name for
Lucifer. The word "Lucifer" is latin, and means literally "Bringer of light" ... or a star. The 5 star has always been understood as being it,
although the 6 star has also been referred to being it. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, this is where the word sex, 6, and hex relate from, as in
the understanding of paganism, and satanism.
