Chapter Summary

Muslims celebrated the Japanese victory over Russia in the 1904-1905 Russo-Japanese War as the victory of the oppressed against the invincible Western imperialists. Political and economic circumstances after the 1929 Great Depression and the specter of Nazi Germany in Europe that caused the Second World War helped the implementation of Islam Policy. The pilgrims apparently had great difficulties in automobile and camel transport, but accomplished their mission to contact Arab leaders. The Japanese Asianist agenda was brought to life by Japanese Muslim actors such as Omar Yamaoka and the others who immersed themselves in this transnational network of Muslims across Asia in order to forge contacts, gather information, and pass on political messages to Muslim leaders, by-passing the European colonial authorities.
