ABDUL HALEEM UNLOADS FROM THE HEART….
Gross Stupidity might be a good nonpolitical reason for you to march!
I will join the Bersih 3.0 – because I can’t stand the gross stupidity that's crippling the entire nation. Honestly, as much as I agree stupidity has no limit – I can’t take this absurdity which is being fed to us in high doses on a daily basis. Day in day out the events unfolding in Malaysia makes you sick and drives you insane. With all the transformation programs and what not – I believe we are on full speed in every wrong direction. Almost every institution in this country is failing. Religious bigotry is at its peak. Most MP’s if not all are busy politicking rather than working. Corruption is nothing but a norm. Priority list is something unfamiliar in our daily life in Malaysia. Common sense is not so common anymore.
What irks me the most lately are the amount of stupidity and bigotry prevailing.
The latest hype about declining a permit for Singapore Ballet group to perform – is just absurd. The reason given is indecent costumes. Ballet costumes deemed indecent? Are you joking? I will not buy that reason simply because it’s insane to agree ballet costumes can poke your eye! Assuming it does, how do we justify the swimsuit then? A gymnast who will be performing in coming Olympics, are we going to censor all female categories of Gymnastic? Perhaps we should censor all female sports from being broadcasted then. When countries like Saudi who will send female athletes to participate in Olympics – we are banning ballet costumes. We have banned books, movies, t-shirts, yoga and what not. Can we ban idiots, who can’t even speak or write English, from standing for election?
If Ibrahim Ali is toning down, worry not, we have a new champion. Another son of Ali. Hasan Ali. His stunts accusing Christians proselytizing Muslims is just too much to bear. A religious teachers forum to discuss Christianity threats is a proof how insecure we are. But the fact is only idiots like Hasan Ali thinks Muslims in this country are insecure. Furthermore – I am sick and tired of the reason they have been giving – to avoid Malaysian young Muslims from being confused. The only thing I am confused is – how did you pass your exams?
I have written on this subject many times. Just what is our problem with Israel? To the extend we have Jew bashing Friday sermons. How pathetic is that? We have elected MP’s and paying their salaries with our tax and they are busy arguing about Israel. Don’t you all think we have more pressing issues to deal with? Stop making Israel and the Jews as a scapegoat for our political plays. Seriously – please move on or find something new to bash.
Knowing the election is around the corner – day by day we see our Parliament turns into a pig farm. The way things are going in there will confuse even a school kid. No civility, no respect to each other, shout to win publicity, scream to get attention, mock to make one look like a clown. If this is the state of Parliament then I wonder how comical the cabinet meeting must be. If the comedy episodes of the parliament are not good enough – we have the DPM cum Education Minister coming out and giving statement saying our education system are better than United States, Britain and Germany. To be frank when you read such statement you are stunned. Unsure if one should cry or burst out laughing. If you laugh then remember this is our DPM that you are laughing at. Last weekend while having dinner with couple of friends – we been served by a part time waitress who just finished her SPM. She scored straight 9A’s. And guess what? She never heard anything about NFC. When my friend asked her if she knows who Shahrizat is, she went blank. We stopped from asking if she knows who the PM of the country is because we do not want to lose our appetite.
The list can go on with me discussing the crime rates, economy which is nose diving, poor quality of undergraduate’s, high level corporate deals (or scams) etc. The point here is – this is a beautiful nation with amazing loving citizens. We are blessed with so much of nature and talented people. Unfortunately, politicians from both sides taking this country down with not only corruption but also their stupidity. Pure gross stupidity. Let’s stop that. Let’s have fair and clean election thus we can vote people with principle and integrity into the public office.
Let’s clean up this mess once and for all.
The portrayal of Muslims as victims or heroes is at best partially accurate. In recent years the violent oppression of Christian minorities has become the norm in Muslim-majority nations stretching from West Africa and the Middle East to South Asia and Oceania. In some countries it is governments and their agents that have burned churches and imprisoned parishioners. In others, rebel groups and vigilantes have taken matters into their own hands, murdering Christians and driving them from regions where their roots go back centuries.
The media’s reticence on the subject no doubt has several sources. One may be fear of provoking additional violence. Another is most likely the influence of lobbying groups such as the Organization of Islamic Cooperation—a kind of United Nations of Islam centered in Saudi Arabia—and the Council on American-Islamic Relations. Over the past decade, these and similar groups have been remarkably successful in persuading leading public figures and journalists in the West to think of each and every example of perceived anti-Muslim discrimination as an expression of a systematic and sinister derangement called “Islamophobia”—a term that is meant to elicit the same moral disapproval as xenophobia or homophobia.
But a fair-minded assessment of recent events and trends leads to the conclusion that the scale and severity of Islamophobia pales in comparison with the bloody Christophobia currently coursing through Muslim-majority nations from one end of the globe to the other. The conspiracy of silence surrounding this violent expression of religious intolerance has to stop. Nothing less than the fate of Christianity—and ultimately of all religious minorities—in the Islamic world is at stake.
