Such acts offend billions of people, and cause unrest in the world. Furthermore, acts like this contradict the essence of coexistence and peace among humans. Labeling these acts as freedom of speech is similar to labeling murder as freedom of expression!

Five other petitions have gathered 30,000 or more signatures: 

-    33,922 people want to "Remove the monument and not to support any international harassment related to this issue against the people of Japan" -- which refers to a monument in New Jersey memorializing the "comfort women" of Korea, about who the petition alleges there have been false and fabricated charges against Japan.

-    33,144 people want to "Require free access over the Internet to scientific journal articles arising from taxpayer-funded research."  According to the petition: "The highly successful Public Access Policy of the National Institutes of Health proves that this can be done without disrupting the research process." 

 

-    31,203 people want to "Not Allow The FDA To Regulate Premium Cigars."   This petition seeks to prevent regulations from being drawn, saying that regulation would  cost jobs and hurt retailers. 

 

-    31,199 people want to "Persuade South Korea (ROK) to accept Japan's proposal on territorial dispute over islets."  Japan's proposal is to have the dispute over the island of Takeshima considered by the International Court of Justice.    [A third petition with 29,568 signatures, addresses both comfort women and Takeshima islands "which has abundant methane hydrate."]

-    30,521 people want to "support the Polish Nation appeal for an international investigation of the Smolensk [Russia] 2010 air crash."  In April 2010, a Russian plane crash killed the Polish President, First Lady, and 94 government officials.  The Russians, investigating themselves, have ignored reports of two explosions in the plane before it crashed.
