Lam Peng Er 
Although I'm not an expert on Japanese Communists I don't see why it is necessary to devote almost half the history section to Lam Peng Er's view of the JCP written 10 years ago. I seriously doubt that his view is a universal one and therefore either this section should be dropped or an opposite view presented.

Formulations such as "overcomes capitalism" and "steers Japan towards democracy and peace" are POV. So is talk about "struggling against imperialism and its subordinate ally, monopoly capital." This is communist rethoric not the description of a political party.
- I think such formulations are justified if this is the way a party veiws itself , after all it can have a POV of itself . If this wording is a direct translation of a quote from its own material or if the original author is a member of the party (who else would talk in such a way) then I believe it has a right to be here as long as the passages used are put in quotation marks and the proviso , "in its own words is made" .(Cetot 06:33, 29 August 2005 (UTC))
- I remember the Japanese Communist Party sending political speech trucks into the streets to PROTEST a Koizumi tax raise in `03! Times have changedstruggle 16:13, 5 May 2006 (UTC)
INCORRECT INFO ON JCP AND NORTH KOREA Twice I have edited by noting that the information on the JCP previously being a pro-North Koren party is wrong. It is the Japan Socialist Party (now Social Democratic Party of Japan) that was close to North Korea and has only recently changed over the abduction issue preinciapply.
(More specifically, one wing of the Socialist party; another wingwas behind a marriage of convenience with the rightist Liberal Democratic Party at one point about 15 years ago)
The JCP has long been on the outs with North Korea, not only recenly over the abductions. For whatever reason, someone keeps erasing this correction.
You can read Fuwa's remarks, which trace the animousity between the two to 1968 at least! http://www.solidnet.org/cgi-bin/agent?parties/0470=japan,_japanese_communist_party/980japanjan04.doc
