aJ9LiN6XMitsukuni Shiraga is a Japanese journalist specialised in the Middle Eastern conflicts, especially ones in Palestine, Kurdistan and Bahrain. He was once deported from Bahrain because his political view was against the regime. He strongly believe in freedom of speech, as far as it does not support hate speech or propaganda. He seeks the way of expression from neutral standpoint as a Japanese concerning the Middle East. Using various media such as SNS, blog and newspaper, he is trying to inform people with information which people need to know, rather than which people want to know. He says “I could be cruel for both oppressors and even readers, but I will report everything if it’s the truth.”
