Abe is accusing China of exercising control and sovereignty over Diaoyudao, on the basis of his calling Diaoyudao by the Japanese translation of the belated British term of "Pinnacle Islands".  Both Senkaku and Pinnacle Islands betray the unfamiliarity and outright ignorance of both Japan and its British mentors of the true value of Dioayudao since time immemorial.  Diaoyudao, in Chinese, means "fishing atoll".  It is rich in marine life, a source of livelihood for generations of Chinese fishermen for countless centuries.  And they called these islands by how they looked above the surface, rather than by what they held below the water line.  Truly, Senkaku is the superficial Anglo-Japanese Shibboleth based on total ignorance of and alienation from the true nature of Diaoyudao.  And Diaoyudao is the proof that these islands have long belonged to the people of China.  By taking control of the seas around Diaoyudao, rather than the barren rocks that Japan loves to use to symbolize its empty claim of sovereignty, China once again proved it is the master of its little hut on the East China Sea.

Abe's desperate attempts to claim Japanese sovereignty while acknowledging China's de facto presence and control over the Diaoyudao waters is much like that of a drowning man grasping at straws.

Your "rocks" are my native land.  Don't you dare equate Chinese fishermen defending their right to fish and sail around Diaoyudao with the Japanese baboons.  Would you equate the Jewish victims of the Holocaust with their Nazi murderers, as monkeys fighting over a briar patch?
