Yes, what Scelli exposed is exactly part of the problem with so much information on the Net.
The government of Japan almost routinely supports all media feeding frenzies against the Israeli claim to Jerusalem, and against Israelis building in the heartland of Israel. Japan's long-standing echo of Western and Muslim anti-Israeli positions is hardly brotherly if you believe them to be descended from ancient Israelis. Hardly suggests any feeling of blood or spiritual or cultural kinship at all! The Japanese government's position is based on the idea that "the enemy of my oil supplier is my enemy."
Japanese people themselves do not seem to harbour much classical anti-Semitism, and their businessmen are to be seen in Israel. One group actually came here to study our semi-chaotic method of developing profitable hi-tech businesses, especially the free manner in which young and old mix and dispute and discuss as equals when hashing out new hi-tech ideas and potential new marketing directions. It contradicts the Japanese way of doing things--though there is also much for all of us to learn from them, too.
