Stop Saying “Moderate Muslims.” You're Only Empowering Islamophobes.

 (This article is reproduced from New Republic, without permission)

Last week’s Heritage Foundation panel on the 2012 attacks in Benghazi was bound to be an ugly affair, what with the presence of panelist Brigitte Gabriel, a self-described “terrorism analyst” with a laundry list of offensive statements about Islam and Arabs. Sure enough, when attendee Saba Ahmed, an American University law school student, explained that not all Muslims are terrorists, Gabriel retorted that “the peaceful majority were irrelevant” in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks in the way that peaceful Germans were irrelevant during the Holocaust....read more here.

BM: I found this article in the New Republic  about Islam in this instance to be refreshing...we have just to stop propagating the term Moderate Muslims.....Islam is indeed one tolerant religion but the cultures that practice the religion simply got confuse between their own culture and the practice of Islam....I am just saying you know!

As a Malay, this guy Ridhuan Tee makes sense in a Malaysian context....

(Reproduced from Unspinners without permission...here)
I was hoping instead of just Sinar Harian, Utusan and Berita Harian should have reported this in their respective papers...I was just thinking.



 


RIDHUAN TEE ABDULLAH - Sinar Harian -

SEBAGAI umat Islam, saya amat hairan, pemimpin kita Melayu. Pembuat keputusan kita semua Melayu. Tetapi, pasal apa Melayu terus Melayu, lemah dan bermasalah dalam pelbagai bidang. Melayu hanya menjadi jaguh dalam kegiatan negatif. Tunjukkan kepada saya kekuatan Melayu!

Pertama, bidang pekerjaan. Melayu tidak mahu lagi menceburkan diri dalam bidang pekerjaan yang agak lekeh seperti buruh kasar dan tukang cuci. Tak glamor. Lebih 3 juta buruh asing mengambil alih tugas Melayu.

Kedua, bidang hiburan. Setakat ini amat kurang program hiburan yang mendidik. Melayu berhibur daripada program realiti bintang kecil sehinggalah bintang tua.

Semua program realiti akan berakhir Ramadan ini kerana pada kefahaman kita, ia bulan ibadat. Bagaimana pula bulan lain, dan kefahaman Islam jenis apakah ini?

Ketiga, bidang politik. Kita asyik berpecah. Ultra kiasu semakin bersatu. Sedar atau tidak, kita hanya ada 50 peratus. Apabila berpecah tiga, tidak mungkin kita boleh memerintah.

Malangnya, perpecahan semakin melebar. PRU14 adalah penentu nasib bangsa dan agama kita. Tunggu dan lihat, jika pengajaran tidak diambil.

Keempat, kita jaguh dalam segala aktiviti kemaksiatan iaitu gejala sosial, seks bebas dan sumbang mahram. Bukan bermakna bukan Islam tidak melakukannya.

Mereka pun banyak terlibat, mereka pandai makan, pandai simpan. Namun, mereka tidak sampai dirogol berkali-kali oleh 21 lelaki sehingga menjadi rekod dunia.

Kelima, bidang ekonomi. Ekonomi negara ini 70 peratus dikuasai bukan Islam. Maka tidak mustahil kita memakan DNA babi dan makanan tidak halal saban hari. Lihatlah bihun buatan ultra kiasu yang tersebar di laman sosial, cap Masjid lagi. Betapa kotor dan jijiknya. Ini baru bihun, belum yang lain.

Keenam, kita jaguh dalam aktiviti dadah dan dedah. Ultra kiasu menjadi penjual dan pengedar dadah. Kita menjadi penagih. Siapa yang kaya dan siapa yang rosak? Begitu juga pendedahan aurat sangat meloyakan. Contoh, syarikat penerbangan awam dan syarikat swasta.

Tidakkah boleh kita syaratkan pakaian mereka paling kurang, jika tidak menutup aurat, pakaian bersopan? Orang yang duduk di atas itu, adalah Melayu. Kenapa Melayu tidak selamatkan Melayu?

Ketujuh, kebanyakan stesen TV tidak berbayar, ketuanya semua orang Melayu. Tidak adakah rancangan hiburan yang lebih bersopan dan terkawal lirik dan aksinya?

Rancangan hiburan tidak ditentang tetapi biarlah sesuai dengan jati diri agama dan bangsa. Karpet merah dibuat pada waktu maghrib, solekan bermula sejak pagi lagi. Bilakah masa artis ini bersolat Zohor, Asar dan Maghrib?

Kelapan, berleluasa kegiatan judi, arak, pusat hiburan dan pelacuran. Kenapa bandar raya kita hidup 24 jam? Tidak banyak aktiviti yang mendidik. Kenapa jadi begitu? Siapa yang memberikan lesen semua ini? 

Mudah sahaja menuding jari bangsa lain yang menyebabkan kita menjadi itu dan ini. Saya terus menjadi mangsa ultra kiasu dan musuh Islam yang lain. Tetapi siapa yang membenarkan mereka berleluasa? Betulkah semua itu salah mereka? Mereka hanya mengambil kesempatan.

Bak kata Dr Shukri Abdullah yang tersebar dalam laman sosial, siapakah yang menyebabkan Melayu mundur? Melayu alpa? Melayu merempit? Melayu ambil dadah? Melayu gila hiburan? Melayu asyik berkonsert.

Kita berkata, di mana Melayu boleh kawal, kenapa Melayu tidak kawal? Kenapa Melayu tidak kawal hiburan hingga melekakan remaja? Hingga kini, bukan saja remaja Melayu, mak bapak Melayu pun asyik dengan hiburan?

Masih ramai tidak bersolat dan tidak tahu bersolat. Apatah lagi untuk berjemaah di masjid. Siapa pemimpin tertinggi negara setakat ini di peringkat pusat dan negeri, termasuk ketua jabatan? Cina dan India?

Akhirnya, mari kita muhasabah diri. perbaiki bangsa kita, perbaiki amalan agama kita, perbaiki anak bangsa kita. Hanya Melayu Islam boleh menyelamatkan Melayu.

Kita Melayu, kita Muslim lupa perbaiki diri kita. Itu salah kita selama ini. Usah beralasan lagi. Mari kita sama-sama cari jalan keluar. Ayuh! Bersatulah! sama-sama fikir dan renung, sebelum terlambat.

Beware of Muslim youth around the world joining ISIS.........!


 Farah Mohamad Shirdon, A Canadian born teenager, from Calgary, Alberta, Canada, who became a member of anti-shia and anti-west ISIS fighting in the Middle East.  In a video he  burnt his Canadian passport.

Reported in Calgary, Canada, about a Muslim-Canadian youth caught in the news over joining the army Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS). He also vowed to destroy his own country Canada and the rest of the western world....read more here.
Farah Mohamad Shirdon born and raised in Canada, came from a prominent political Somalian family in Calgary, Alberta, Vanada.  His father was a prime minister of Somalia until he fled to Canada.
ISIS has captured the imagination of many Muslim youths around the world, Malaysia I am sure is included, to fight to overthrow any Shia government in the war torn middle-east and to fight against perceived western imperialism.
In 1992 I was invited to witness the opening of the 337 kms highway linking Islamabad and Lahore. However, this is not about the highway, but when I stumbled upon a group of Malaysian students studying at many religious school in Pakistan who got caught with the Taliban mischief.
I met them at our Malaysian embassy and their purpose for being there at the temperature cold point in time of the year , just to have hot shower and to use the embassy facility.
They were mainly unfriendly and greeted us in Arabic and were from Kelantan.  They wore the signature Taliban headgear, wearing a robe and basically they stunk to high heaven, when I was first introduced. I just hope our government is keeping tab of these youth and their activity.
Months back I wrote about Umno Youth members under Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim who undertook a guerrila warfare training in the Libyan desert.  To this I will also say keep a close tab on these disgruntled and socially inept youth.

More to it than meets the eye in Johore......!


We will be gobbled from the top and from the bottom!

New Singapore metropolis....a lot of people are helping Singapore to realise this!

Part of Singapore metropolis southward involving Indonesia land...with the help of few corrupt generals!

Its happening in Penang and Selangor already!
Whats happening in Penang and Selangor you might ask, well if your minds are that insular and simple Malay minds you will probably miss and not see it.
Let me put it very bluntly....these two states will be hard to "take" back to the fold since a lot of foreign money are in to make these two states not again to be belong to the BN, or to Umno or to the pathethic Malays.
Now to Johore!  I can bet my bottom ringgit (not much though) that what is happening in Johore vis a vis corruption, as reported, is that there is a bigger game afoot, if Umno politicians, or members of the royalty refused to see the bigger picture. That picture is SINGAPURA!!
That island republic's undeclared motto is: Corrupt them, then control!
Neighbouring Bataam, which is part of the Republic of Indonesia, is already well entrenched into Singapore's economy.  High priced property in this island is fully owned by Singaporeans, or indirectly the Singapore government.  Bataam, for all intent and purposes, is indeed part of Singapore!
The next century Singapore might want to expand westward, northward or any ward.  Why? it needs more breathing space for its population and its economy.  From afar I see that the Iskandar Malaysia Economic region is meant for rich Singaporean, and no mere Malay or Malaysian mortal will be able to afford the property there.
Simple arithmetic really for Singapore.  Just feed the greedy Malaysians with money and sex and their minds will be taken away from their feeble feeling and sense of nationalism, patriotism and that feeling of pride being a citizen of ones country.
Yes, money lots of money, and sex and that illusion of ones being important, and the next thing we know is we lost our land to others.  Or in Malay: Kampung kita tergadai! Read here...
We, bloggers and writers and journalists can write about the subject until the proverbial cows come home but alas the Malays are a peculiar species: they are weak, easily tempted, envious of other Malays, not too well educated to the fullest, love the good and easy life, but deep inside they are not capable of cherishing what values that have.
If you ask me what can be done to help, my answer would be "I am stumped for answers vis a vis my race!"  More reading here if you wish!

Cadbury chocolate fiasco: Much Ado About Nothing.



In the past it was Ladys Choice when Anwar was the DPM, LC jam was declared as not ksoher to the  muslim.
LC sale went down drastically.  It was later learnt that some one representing a powerful politician went to LC asking for political donation but was turned down. "We will show you." said the solicitor.
Then it was spread that LC products contain porcine product.
I wonder if CAd is the same case.......

Malaysia please watch out for Urban Guerrilla terrorism!

This man is far worse than the leader of  the Red Army! He will do anything to sabotage and destablise the government!

Beware of Urban Guerrillas!

Can be bought at any bookshop of the world.

"An urban guerrilla is someone who fights a government using unconventional warfare or domestic terrorism in an urban environment. During the Cold War, many were on the left-wing of the political spectrum. (source wikipedia)."

Malaysia has been in the news quite lately from rantings of the western world's darling  Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim, to the disappearance of a Malaysia Airlines.
I remember in the late eighties when our international airport in Subang caught fire twice, wires from an aircraft were cut then the news came out as quick before you can say shit.
Sabotage is the name of the game.  Very organised tactic that bad news will hit the streets through words of mouth before being reported by main stream media.
I believe Malaysia is under siege and urban guerrilla terrorism is being unleashed and conducted by the opposition leaders and their gang of malcontents!
Former Inspector General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan said random acts of violence such as kidnapping of tourist on Malaysias resort island may  not be as random as it looks.
It was organised and conducted to smear Malaysia as an unsafe country to the world.
The disappearance of  a Briton and the death of a French tourist at Pulau Tioman can be categorised as under a not-so-random-acts of violence.  It could be planned for a price!
Since the invention of Murder Incorporated  (MI) by the Mafia in 1930 where between 400 to 1000 contract killings to place until MI was exposed, no body thought of it as no more than a gang war.
MI was a planned killing arms of the Mafia that partake in the act of extreme prejudice to anyone going against its will.
Today MI has taken a new meaning.  Legitimate undemocratic governments have their own MI arms to do all the sordid act of destabilising the opposition parties, and dissidents. The ends justify the means.
I found it strange that after an opposition leader was released from prison many weird happenings have been recorded and detected.
He almost knew when the Sabah invasion by invaders from southern Philippines going to take place.  I saw him singing mocking lyrics about Sabah going to shake before the last general elections.
The government with the help of other world intelligence agencies to record this particular opposition leader's  involvement in taking a group of now former Umno Youth members to Libya for a guerrilla warfare training by the late Dr George Habash's Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestinians (PFLP).
I am  sure the training is now being used to smear Malaysia via an urban guerrilla terrorism, like burning the peat field near Putrajaya so the smoke would engulfed the area making working conditions unbearable, and the Bersih rallies.  Sounds like a joke to you?  This is what urban guerrilla warfare is all about, like disrupting water supply so the people will hate the government so on and so forth.
I also find it strange that a spate of by-elections were conducted after representatives dropped dead like flies being squirted with repellent.  May be it is spurious relationships between a particular opposition leader being released and many assemblymen and member of parliament died thus forcing by-elections hoping his party would win.  So you think its a joke think again.
CIA has a handbook on how to kill someone to make it look like a natural death!  Think.
Now I am beginning to believe this opposition leader and his may have something to do with the disappearance of MH370, nothing is unthinkable.
A plane radar system can also be tampered with, with compliment of a dedicated and committed urban guerrilla member!

Be protective of our massive underground water reserve!


Water pumped from underground can be stored ina reservoir as being done in Israel.

This water fracking technology, to separate petroleum from shale, can also be used to suck water from one country's underground reserve to another country's reservoir!


I have posted a conclusion of this interesting article on how Israel has been controlling and stealing water from the Palestinians and from the Arab world.
The never ending war between the Arab world and Israel has never been about political or religious reasons that we were made to believe.  I initially the war was about acquiring Arab and Palestinian land.
Today the prolonged wars are about who is in control of the most important and valuable natural   resources of all:  WATER!
Israelis today controlled almost 90 percent of all rivers, lakes, and underground water supplied to the middle-eastern land.  Today, atrocities committed by the Israelis against the Arabs and the Palestinians are all about who can be in the position to control this valuable resources without which we human kind will die without it.
Take Malaysia for example, we are one of the two countries in the world with massive underground water reserve (source a book Blue Gold) that expand from Johore all the way to Terengganu.
How aware are we, Malaysians, and the government over the danger of our ground water being suck out from the ground by our neighbour?! Probably oblivious!
The technique of stealing water is so easy and made simple nowadays when American ranchers and farmers woke up one day to find they have no more ground water to use for their land and cattle.  Read read read more here!
One of best way to steal water is to use the water fracking system technology which many shale oil industry is using to extract oil.  Millions of underground water use to separate fossil fuel trapped by shale and sand.
Saddam Hussein also use a similar technique to steal petroleum from Kuwait by using vertical pumps that can drill right into neighbouring country.
Now then, here comes the humdinger of a piece of news!  Developed Singapore can steal our massive underground water reserve right from under our noses.  Or without our knowing it.
The technology, of course, came from Israel.  Israel is pumping underground water from Gaza and the West Bank and store the water in designated reservoir in Israel!.
An underground drilling can start from somewhere in Singapore and it can start sucking our water even as we speak.
In  1974 a movie Chinatown starring Jack Ncholson and Faye Dunaway was about water water between counties in California.  One county woke up up one day to find there was no water to distribute, for the water has been sucked to another county!  Read here...and here!
http://www.globalresearch.ca/israel-is-stealing-palestinian-and-arab-water/18299
All I am saying is sometimes there is more to it than just a bilateral arrangements between two countries.  I am afraid of our tendency to a political infighting among us that we are just not aware our precious commodity being stolen from right under us.  I am just saying!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

 Conclusion ( of  the article I mentioned above)

From the above we note that Israel is the cause of the water crisis for Palestinians in particular and for Arabs in general, a fact that the Jewish state refuses to acknowledge. Israel will continue with its plans to control more water resources, especially as it seeks to attract ever-greater numbers of Jewish immigrants.

Unfortunately, the Oslo agreement deferred negotiations of the issue of water to the anticipated ‘final status’ agreement, which was one mistake amongst many committed by the Palestinian negotiators. By agreeing to defer consideration of the most important issues until the ‘final status’ talks (including the status of Jerusalem, the return of refugees as well as the water issue), they have allowed Israel to introduce many changes and "facts on the ground" which the Palestinians will just have to accept.

The Jewish state avoids discussing the core issues such as the water problems of the Palestinians and tries to shift the focus to long-term solutions such as the search for alternative water sources, desalination plants and a reduction in the amount needed for agriculture.

It is worth remembering that unless proposals include Palestinian control over their own natural water resources, it is useless to talk about an independent Palestinian state, with real sovereignty over its air, land and sea. It is equally useless, to consider achieving genuine peace.

The United Nations should take its responsibilities seriously and oblige Israel to end its illegal occupation of Palestinian land, giving back to the Palestinians their inalienable rights, including control of its natural resources. As long as Israel is treated with kid gloves by the international community, as a state which is above the law, peace talks – proximity or direct – will continue to be diplomatic devices to give the Israelis more time to create more facts on the ground; and genuine peace and justice will remain as elusive as ever.

This point in time how I wish Rahim King is still alive.....!

 
The late Rahim King:  Wonder how he would resolve many of Umno woes now!


Wonder how Rahim King would react to this racist little Indian!



I have known him almost all of my entire life. He was a brother, a comrade-in-arm, a loyal friend, and my only daughters God-father till to his last breath. (He would asked: How's Jen)
After he died he left behind a big vacuum in many people's lives though many will not admit it. He left behind a unique legacy that Umno leaders and Umno per se cannot forget or should not forget.
His real name is Rahim Dahlan otherwise known as Rahim King. This is his short story as I knew him.
He was a patriot, an unsung hero, an Umno-diehard and wss a loyal supporter of Tun Mahathir, except for a very, very minor glitch when he was tricked by another con-man of a politician, but that is another story.
He was akin to being a special envoy of the government where he will be asked to go around to unravel, untangle and to settle political problems behind the scenes.  I saw him in actions he was persuasive and convincing.  Wherever or whenever he encountered  a serious problems he would not hesitate using his famous brand of a "moral suasion".
He conducted a rugged special courses for cabinet ministers, and shouted to these leaders under his command.  He called ministers trained by him only  by their first name. Well many more instances involving ministers during the training that I cannot divulge here.
Rahim King was trained by the Australian SAS, by the US Navy Seal, by the dreaded Indonesian commando unit, he was also trained by an Indonesian elite commando unit Kostrad, did a stint at Fort Bragg in the US.
Once in Pulau Tioman I witnessed an interaction he had in a big yacht with the father of the present Sultan of Johore. after which Rahim put on his scuba gear threw it in the very choppy water and then he jumped to retrieve the floating gear put it on and dived.
I am sure if he is still alive today he would see RSN Rayer and will "talked" him into apologising for what he had said about Umno.
He once said his job is to make peace and untangled nagging problems where politicians are too meek or afraid  to solve it themselves.
He once told me he was like the US Special Envoy to the Middle East Phillip Habib who was given the carte blanche to solve any mid-east problem.
"I am like Phillip Habib I will do what ever it takes to resolve the nation problem, 99.9 percent of the time I will succeed," he once told me.
He was instrumental in organising a group of ex-commando, including the infamous ex-VAT 69 personnel to Bosnia-Herzegovina in the early 90s to help the Muslims against the Serbs and the Croats.
He was many things for the country.
The reason why I thought of him now is, apart from missing him, I was just wondering how he would solve, among other things, the issue of the badly brought up Sri Delima assemblymen Rayer who uttered the words "Umno Celaka".
Sorry bro I know you are not resting in peace now knowing how chauvinist Chinese with the help of racist Indians who are sowing many seeds of hatred throughout the country
Adios Muchachos, (his favourite farewell) to you bro.
