Japan: Changing "Sulfur Island"

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20070620/ap_on_re_as/japan_iwo_jima

The nation of Japan has made the decision to change the name of the island of Iwo Jima (trans: "Sulfur Island") to what it was originally called before World War II: Iwo To. A clash of perspectives have resulted due to mixed feelings of the establishment of Iwo To: surviving islanders praise the name change as it gives honor to the island's true name, but many war veterans (including those of Japanese ancestry) believe that Iwo Jima should remain due to its historical significance during World War II and that the change would demean its history.

Regardless of what is said, the Japanese government have taken the initiative in declaring that Iwo To will now be the official name of this island once again and that, though its history is of great importance, the respecting of the wishes of the surviving islanders (a minority voice) is truly commendable.
