Eh, this isn't really about the land, so much as the possible (?) undersea gas/oil deposits and maybe fishing rights in the waters around those islands. Well that and it's a neat issue to boost your popularity, and rally people around so they can forget about economic hardships, domestic policy, etc. Land/sea disputes are also an amusing distracting tactic used by democracies as well, in order to bring in votes; see Governor Ishihara's statement about wanting to buy those islands and develop them.

As for the mainland Chinese, I somehow doubt the village farmers living in inland China, or the migrant worker who's left his/her child(ren) behind give two hoots about this dispute.

this current issue with the Senkaku/Daioyu islands are believed it or not, not spark by China. It was Ishihira, Ultra-Nationalist Governor of Tokyo that kick this off with his plan to buy the islands for development.

Japanese Porn Star Tries, Fails, to Repair Japanese-Chinese Tensions

Quote:
As tensions over what the Chinese call the Diaoyu Islands and the Japanese call the Senkaku Islands gather like a storm cloud, Sora Aoi, also known as Sola Aoi, has extended an olive branch across the turbulent waters. Ms. Aoi is, according to Wikipedia, "JapaneseAV idol, nude model, and media personality."

Ms. Aoi recently tweeted two images via iPhone from her account (@苍井空)on Sina Weibo, China's Twitter, where she has over 13 million followers. The first reads "Japanese-Chinese Friendship," with Ms. Aoi commenting in broken Chinese, "I hope there are good relations between we common people...I am [living in] the same world as you. Sad..." The second reads "Chinese-Japanese People's Friendship."

As of this writing, the images have been collectively retweeted over 120,000 times and received over 130,000 comments, with these numbers seemingly growing every few seconds. Her name is the top trending topic on Sina Weibo as well by far, with twice as many mentions as the actual name "Diaoyu Islands."

Chinese netizens have reacted with great anger to the recent spat, which only escalated after word got out that Beijing had deployed patrol ships toward the Diaoyu/Senkaku after Japan nationalized the islands. Recently, when a Chinese netizen tweeted a relatively moderate info graphic about the history of the islands, he was subjected to widespread criticism. Another popular image making the current Weibo rounds shows a car engulfed in flames; apparently, a Shanghai car owner set his own Japanese-made car on fire in protest of Japanese actions.

Yet there is also humor. Many netizens have taken to writing, "The Diaoyu Islands Belong to China; Sora Aoi belongs to the world." [1]

That sentiment is proving true of Ms. Aoi's Weibo account. As netizen comments flooded in, a wide range of emotion was visible, from those proclaiming their love for Ms. Aoi to those calling her a "Japanese dog." A majority, however, were negative. Many referred to Japanese war crimes in Nanjing, China, during World War II. Many others took aim at Aoi's broken Chinese, while a great many noted that her first tweet should not have called for "Japanese-Chinese" friendship-rather, China should have been listed first. Ms. Aoi took the latter commentary to heart, reversing the order in her subsequent tweet after only seven minutes.

But Aoi's linguistic turnabout did not appear to placate netizens. Indeed, by the time she issued her second tweet, more extreme (and obscene) tweets had seemingly drowned out many of the encouraging voices that initially responded to Aoi's first overture. One netizen kept it clean, writing only, "One mountain does not have room for two tigers." [2]

With even seasoned diplomats getting into Twitter wars these days, it's difficult to speculate exactly why Ms. Aoi chose this moment to dip her toe into the nastiest geopolitical conflict in East Asia. If she wished to broaden her oeuvre, the move may have come at a steep price. If she was merely trying to bring Chinese and Japanese people together, Ms. Aoi's reception demonstrates the difficulty of that task in a time of rising tension.
Well guys, if a porn star can't fix this then who can?

Although technically that was in response to the fishermen incident about two years ago. It's a long chain of events where we can't really say who started what.

Truth speaking they had already before this issue. At least in the upper class segments.

And honestly, the Chinese do not particularly like the Germans because they sometimes have this nasty habit to interfere with China's interal affairs (e.g. they regard the Dalai Lama as such).

However, there is even less "love" for the Japanese. So, whenever a politcal decission over equipement acquisition boils down to a... either take a Japanese or a German product/design (for technical reasons), you can bet they will choose the german product over the japanese one.

Even if they procure both, like in the case of the high speed train deals. They will buy the newest generation trains based on german design to be their flagship fleet and an technically older generation of trains based on japanese design (even if both newest generation designs are basically on par).

The effect of such behaviour (nevermind the nationalistic touch to it) is that it becomes like a state run advertisement campaign for non-japanese products.

It's a modern day thing. Germany tends to have many diplomatic positions which PRC does not like (such as recognizing the Dalai Lama). The only times they had the same stance was on military intervention of Iraq and Libya, although for different reasons.

I can't help but noticed the brand of the TV here. The irony is not lost on the guy who drew this.

Translation :-
Should China be heavy-handed on resisting Japanese Exports ?
"If we need to resist Japanese exports, we should not touch our own Japanese goods. But we should do better than them. Our officials should be less corrupted. Our streets should be cleaner. And our youths' future better and brighter."

I had a chuckle out of this. Better faced up to reality, kid. I am not getting cynical here, right ?
