“Abe was admitted to the Nara Medical University Hospital, and government sources cited in media reports said the former leader was in critical condition,” The Washington Post reported. “Local media, citing police sources, described Abe’s status as a ‘cardiopulmonary arrest,’ a term often used in Japan before death is officially confirmed.”

The man who allegedly shot Abe told local police that he was “frustrated” with him and that he hoped to kill him.

“This is a despicable and barbaric act that occurred in the midst of an election which is the foundation of democracy and absolutely cannot be tolerated,” Japanese Prime Minister Fumio Kishida said. “We condemn it in the harshest possible terms. We will take all possible measures to prepare for every possible situation.”

The White House released a statement condemning the attack, adding, “We are closely monitoring the reports and keeping our thoughts with his family and the people of Japan….”


Abe, a center-right politician, became Japan’s longest-serving prime minister since WWII, serving between 2012 and 2020.

I continue praying for a surge of Holy Spirit awakening in Japan. PM Abe was a just man, and this tragedy reveals the father of death manifesting his lies there as he is worldwide. The Father of Jesus will triumph! Jesus is Truth!
