This group intends to make a textbook which makes young Japanese confident and proud of their country. It claims that some of the current history textbooks contain propaganda from Japan’s former enemies and treat Japan’s young generation as if they were 'destined to become criminals.' The website has PDF files in English, Japanese, Korean, and Chinese of excerpts from the revised history textbook that was adopted by the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology. This textbook became a source of great controversy in South Korea, China, and Japan. Regarding the birth of the current Japanese constitution, the textbook states: " …[I]n February 1946, GHQ presented a draft of the Constitution, which had been written in about a week, to the Japanese government, insisting on a complete reconstruction of the Imperial Constitution. Government officials were shocked by the content of the GHQ’s draft. But they accepted it, fearing that the Emperor's status might be jeopardized if they did not" (History Textbook [online English PDF version], p. 59).
