"Bleeding Heart Liberal" Muslims in the country missing the point!

If you think these chauvinist non-Malay politicians are stupid, think again, they are good actors and are using BABI for their own vile agenda!

Let's not get into details as to how I got a chance to get into Israel in the late 60s.
When I was a hippie everyone wanted to work in any kibbutz in Israel.  I worked in a kibbutz called Rosh Pina.
Chance to talk to many Jews from army officers to ordinary prostitute with one question: "Do you eat port and why don't you."
The answer was bloody simple: "We don't eat pork because our religion forbids us from doing so, as a good good Jew we just follow the religious rules and tenets."
Even the most advanced and progressive and scientifically savvy and advanced racial group that could have easily find some scientific reasons to eat pork, the Jews do it so simply because their religion forbid them from doing so.
The Jews also have rule about dogs and the interpretation is the same as Muslims, as stated in their religious book Torah. Read here....
My personal view is everything about the "lets touch a dog" initiated by a Muslim boy is not an issue here, the issue is some group very powerful group knowing and perceiving what they thought to be a weak government decided on a malicious and nasty path to bring this government down by being "naughty".
To bring down the Malay majority government and its Malay institution, as we all know and aware, is to break up the Malay unity.
It appears they have succeeded but not a one hundred percent success.
UNLESS, the Malays will insist on being made use of by the likes of the DAP and other chauvinist political elements within the country!  Meanwhile the shallow and uninformed bleeding heart Malays will forever be made use of by the "enemies"
Having said all these I personally think that Islam as practiced and being protected by the "so-called-gate-keepers" need to lighten up.
As perceived naive and easily-influenced flock, the Muslims in this country are also your average human beings with sensitive feelings, be gentle with them.
For example, I personally do not see  what good will come out of banning Oktoberfest except it is being associated with beer.   So don't drink the beer!
Like the Jews, who believe in their religion, the Malays are not that far off in respecting theirs. They will and must be allowed to experience the festival but they may not necessarily be in a state of a drunken stupor and I do know young Malay-Muslims can have fun without getting high.
So we need to lighten up Muslim gate-keepers let us not get to obsessed with controlling, for the more you control the more they rebel!  As the saying goes "its in the nature of the beast"!
No JAIS, MAIS, MAZE, MAIZE or any other mechanism of control can stop a mind from expanding, all that is needed is love and understanding.
As for "I want to touch a dog" we, like the Jews, just have to follow the rules then, eh!
If I have my ways I also want to have tattoos on my bodies, and have a pet dog for for my jungle home, and many other things that I would like to touch.!!
"But rules are rules they are there for a reason." said a Jewish girlfriend many many years ago.
I still go by that.

It is good that you brought up the similarity between Muslims and Jews on issues of port eating and dogs.

Many non-Malay Malaysians who regard certain Muslim objections and concerns a "petty in the modern age" are ignorant of the even greater strictures which seriously religious Jews observe, even those living in western countries.

For example, in 1979, my parents came for my graduation in Salford, U.K. and they stayed at a Jewish-owned bed and breakfast hotel and were asked to settle their bill on Friday ahead of their checking out on Saturday, because as Jews, the owners could accept money on their sabbath day.

I also read about kosher elevators in New York which automatically stop at every floor on Saturdays, since observant Jewish residents cannot push the elevator button because that would constitute work, which their religion forbids them to do on a Saturday. Otherwise, they would have to climb the stairs all the way up to their apartment.

One of my friends who was a flatmate with a fellow student in the U.S. who is Jewish, told me that she told my friend not to use her plates and cups as it would violate their kosher status.

BTW. Was pork sold in Israel at all and did you meet an non-observant Jews in Israel?

I know some Jews in the west who do not observe such rules which they find inconvenient, or do not wear a skull cap as required when outdoors.

Anyway, the observant Jews have every right to be observant and people should respect their right to be observant.
