President Ahmedinejad’s speech at the UN Assembly Sept 2010

26 09 2010

In the name of Allah,The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

When something is said or if there is a criticism on the Europe, Israel or the US at the UN Assembly, the respective countries will walk out of the hall as a sign of protest. We have seen this a lot of times. It’s either that they protest or they cannot comprehend the truth. So much of freedom of speech, these countries cannot stomach the principle that they have been championing.

Below is the full speech of Iranian President, Mahmoud Ahmedinajad which made the EU, US and Israel’s representatives walked out of the assembly. Credit goes to the news portal Russia Today

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.

George Galloway, a UK MP for Glasgow Hillhead. He is famous for opposing the sanctions and war on Iraq & constantly defending the rights of the Palestinians over the Israel’s occupation. I think I just found my new hero.

And here is an interview with SKY News which he got to embarrass.

This one was a hearing in front of US Senate over the Iraq’s Oil-for-Food scandal

O’ Christ Worshippers,we want an answer

25 07 2010

In the Name of Allah,The Most Gracious,The Most Merciful.

The following poem was written by Ibn Al-Qayyim Al-Jawziya. He lived in the medieval era between the year 1292-1350CE. This is a poem to ask for reasoning and truth, not to insult any of my Christians brethren.

Oh,Christ worshippers! We want an answer to our question from your wise.

If the Lord was murdered by some people’s act…what sort of god is this?

We wonder! Was he pleased by what they did to Him? If yes,blessed be they..they achieved the pleasure of His

But if he was discontented, this means their power subjugated His!

Was the whole entity left without the All-Hearful Sustainer? So who answered the prayers?

Were the heavens and the skies vacated, when he laid on the ground and the sand over him (in the grave) ?

Were all the worlds left without a God to manage, while His hands were nailed?

Why did not the angles help Him  when they heard Him while he wailed?

How could the rods stand to bear the True Lord when he was fastened?

How could the iron reach Him and be stuck to Him and hurt Him?

How could His enemies’ hands reach Him and slap his rear?

And was Christ revived by Himself, or the Reviver was another god?

What a wonder it is! A grave that enclosed a god!

What’s more weird is the belly that had Him in it!

He stayed there for nine months in utter darkness..fed by blood!

The he got out of the womb as a small baby, weak and gaping to be breastfed!

He ate and drank, and did what naturally resulted..Is this a god???

High Exalted be Allah above the lies of Christians. All of them will be held accountable for their libels.

Oh cross worshippers…for what reason is it exalted and blamed who rejects it?

Is it not the logic to break and burn it (the cross) along with the one who innovated it?

Since The Lord was crucified on it..and his hands were fastened to it?

That is really a cursed cross to carry, so step on it with your foot and don’t kiss it when you see it!

The Lord was abused on it…and you adore it? So you are one of his enemies!!

If you extol it because it carried the Lord of all the world, why don’t you prostrate yourself and worship graves, since the grave contained your god in it?

So Christ worshipper wake up, this is His start and this is His end.

by Ibn Al-Qayyim Al-Jawziyya (691 – 751 Hijrah)

” Surely they have disbelieved who say “Allah is the Messiah Isa (Jesus), son of Maryam (Mary).” But the Messiah Isa (Jesus) said: ” O children of Israel! Worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord.” Verily, whosoever sets up partners (in worship) with Allah, then Allah has forbidden Paradise to him, and the Fire will be his abode. And for the Zalimun (polytheists and wrong-doers) there are no helpers”. – Al Maeda: 72

“Surely disbelievers are those who said: “Allah is the third of three (in a Trinity).” But there is no Ilah (god) (none who has the right to be worshipped) but One Ilah (God-Allah). And if they cease not from what they say, verily, a painful torment will befall on the disbelievers among them” – Al Maeda: 73

“Will they not turn with repentance to Allah and ask His forgiveness? For Allah is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful.” – Al Maeda: 74

“The Messiah [Isa(Jesus)] son of Maryam (Mary), was no more than a Messenger; many were the Messengers that passed away before him.His mother [Maryam(Mary)] was a Siddiqah [i.e she believed in the words of Allah and His Books (see Verse 66:12)]. They both used to to eat food (as any other human being, while Allah does not eat).Look how We make the ayat (proofs,eveidences,verses,lessons,signs,revelations,etc) clear to them, yet look how they are deluded (from the truth)”

-Al Maeda: 75

“Say (O Muhammad SAW to mankind): “How do you worship besides Allah something which has no power either to harm or to benefit you? But it is Allah Who is the All-Hearer, All-Knower”. – Al Maeda:76

What is your kind of politician?

23 05 2010

In the name of Allah, The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful…

Talking about politics, almost everyone will think about how dirty is the world of politics. Politicians will be directly associated with the abuse of power, corruption, liars and etc. This happens everywhere, whether it is in the democracy, dictatorship or anarchy system.

But I think it is naive and unfair when we sum up all politicians like that. There are still politicians who are still full with integrity, putting his whole heart into the improvement of the constituent that he is serving. Trying very hard to take care of every single person in the constituent while sacrificing his time and money to make sure that every single thing is alright. These politicians should be called representatives, rather than sticking them with the stigma of the word ‘politician’.

I have been fascinated with politics since I was small, largely because  my dear grandparents were among those who were in the UMNO early days. They fought for the betterment of the Malays which in those days were still lacking in terms of education and economy. When they left politics, they had nothing. No timber concessions, no land award. They lived mediocrely, trying very hard to make ends meet. But they proudly live telling their grandchildren, how they fought for their causes.

The point I want to make here is, when one is thinking about becoming an elected representative, whether it is parliamentary or house of representatives, one has to be ready to live moderately, be ready to sacrifice most of the time for the people that one is serving. If the first thing that one thinks is a 2-door convertible BMW, 10-room mansion with a big pool, then stop there. You will risk making the system corrupted and inefficient. Find something else, perhaps doing business is something proper for you.

This might seem an utopia, but as far as my small brain is concerned, it is the ideal way of life for an elected representative. Unless everyone is living with a convertible BMW (some people have two) and a 10-room mansion, then one can live that way without guilt. Is there any living example of this kind of representative? Yes, there are, but not so many.

I admit that it is very hard to refuse the temptation of wealth when you have power. But with proper mindset, I think we can produce the kind of representatives that I am talking about. All in all, who is the best statesman ever lived? He is non other that Prophet Muhammad saw. Picking up what Reverend R. Bosworth Smith wrote in his book “Mohamed and Mohammedanism”:

“Head of the state as well as the Church, he was Caesar and Pope in one; but, he was pope without the pope’s claims, and Caesar without the legions of Caesar, without a standing army, without a bodyguard, without a palace, without a fixed revenue. If ever any man had the right to say that he ruled by a Right Divine, it was Mohammad, for he had all the power without instruments and without its support. He cared not for dressing of power. The simplicity of his private life was in keeping with his public life.”

These are my kind of politicians. Which is yours?

MEB penyelesai DEB?

29 04 2010

Dengan nama Allah Yang Maha Pemurah, Lagi Maha Mengasihani…

Saya bukan nak bercerita secara terperinci mengenai Model Ekonomi Baru tetapi saya tertarik dengan ‘affirmative action’ yang akan menumpukan golongan 40% strata pendapatan terendah dalam ekonomi Malaysia.

‘Affirmative action’ adalah sama seperti dasar mengutamakan bumiputera atau yang lebih kita ketahui sebagai DEB (Dasar Ekonomi Baru yang diperkenalkan oleh Allahyarham Tun Razak). DEB diperkenalkan untuk memberi keseimbangan terhadap jurang pendapatan antara kaum (distribution of wealth), yang mana pada permulaan perlaksanaannya jurang pendapatan antara bukan Bumiputera dan Bumiputera adalah jauh.  Kita akui kejayaan DEB dalam melahirkan Bumiputera kelas professional seperti doktor, jurutera, peguam, akauntan, ahli korporat dan lain-lain. DEB telah dapat mengurangkan jurang kemiskinan kepada 3.7%, kejayaan yang diakui baik negara maju mahupun yang sedang membangun. Kita juga akui ada juga kelemahan dalam perlaksanaan DEB. Namun seperti mana-mana dasar di dunia ini, DEB dilihat memerlukan kajian dan olahan semula bagi mengikut peredaran zaman dan pola ekonomi penduduk Malaysia yang telah berubah.

Majoriti rakyat Malaysia meghadapi risiko terperangkap dalam pendapatan kelas pertengahan. Mereka yang berada di kelas pertengahan ini adalah golongan yang berpendapatan ‘cukup-cukup’, tidak terlebih dan tidak pula terkurang. Apa yang membimbangkan adalah kos sara hidup yang meningkat lebih pantas daripada peluang pendapatan mereka untuk naik, yang bakal menyebabkan golongan ini terdedah dengan risiko untuk jatuh ke golongan berpendapatan rendah jika keadaan ekonomi tidak menentu.

Golongan ini merangkumi semua kaum, bukan hanya Bumiputera sahaja walaupun majoriti daripada 40% strata terendah ini terdiri daripada Bumiputera. Maka MEB akan menumpukan golongan 40% ini tanpa mengira kaum dan disamping itu tidak mengabaikan Bumiputera yang benar-benar memerlukan.

Kita boleh melihat 40%  adalah sebagai ‘threshold’ atau penanda aras bagi kaum Bumiputera. Ini bermakna jika anda Bumiputera yang berjaya berada di dalam golongan 60% strata teratas, anda tidak merangkumi golongan sasaran ‘affirmative action’ ataupun boleh ditafsir sebagai ‘golongan wajib tolong’. Anda tetap akan ditolong, tetapi berdasarkan merit ataupun pencapaian.

Contoh boleh kita lihat dalam soal pembahagian biasiswa. Selama ini formula yang kita gunakan adalah kuota antara kaum yang mana Bumiputera selalunya akan diberi lebih keutamaan daripada kaum-kaum lain. Melalui MEB, golongan 40% strata pendapatan terbawah ini akan diberi keutamaan untuk mendapat biasiswa. Seperti yang dikatakan tadi ini merangkumi semua kaum. Manakala pemberian biasiswa untuk 60% strata teratas dibuat berdasarkan merit. Ibu bapa yang bekerja sebagai professional sudah tentu mampu untuk membiayai pengajian anak mereka dengan sedikit bantuan atau tanpa ada bantuan daripada kerajaan.

Berdasarkan contoh diatas, saya melihat strategi MEB lebih adil dan peluang untuk golongan sasaran mendapat manfaat adalah lebih tinggi. Golongan 60% strata teratas termasuk Bumiputera dianggap sudah mampu berdikari dan dinilai berdasarkan merit sekaligus dikurangkan sedikit penggunaan ‘tongkat’ yang selama ini digunakan untuk membantu Bumiputera.

Saya juga melihat MEB sebagai penyelesai masalah politik dan ekonomi  negara untuk jangka masa panjang. Ini kerana MEB akan dapat menukar persepsi terhadap DEB yang dikatakan mengenepikan kaum bukan Bumiputera yang padahal fakta dan data menunjukkan ianya tidak benar sama sekali. DEB adalah satu dasar yang baik, cuma perlaksanaannya  yang kurang  mengenai golongan sasar. Malah boleh dikatakan DEB lebih memberi manfaat kepada bukan Bumiputera daripada Bumiputera. Golongan bukan Bumiputera di dalam lingkungan 40% tersebut bakal mendapat manfaat ‘affirmative action’ dalam kerangka MEB disamping tidak melupakan golongan Bumiputera yang memerlukan. Pendek kata, MEB bakal menjadi ‘wealth distribution’ yang lebih relevan dengan pola ekonomi masyarakat Malaysia pada masa sekarang.

Berbalik kepada golongan berpendapatan rendah dan sederhana/kelas pertengahan, MEB akan dapat menaikkan pendapatan golongan ini ke tahap yang lebih tinggi dan sekaligus mengeluarkan golongan ini daripada perangkap kelas rendah dan pertengahan. Ini kerana MEB akan menumpukan kepada meningkatkan kebolehupayaan golongan ini dengan memberi peluang-peluang baru dalam ekonomi. Dengan peluang-peluang yang diberikan, diharapkan mereka akan dapat membina kekayaan baru yang merangkumi aset-aset seperti hartanah, aset kewangan dan juga harta intelek.

MEB menampakkan usaha kerajaan secara ikhlas mahu menaikkan taraf ekonomi seluruh rakyat Malaysia agar seiring dengan sasaran 2020. Kita sebagai rakyat harus menggunakan peluang yang ada untuk menaikkan taraf ekonomi diri dan keluarga agar tergolong dalam pendapatan yang terbaik. Saya selalu menanyakan diri, pada 2020 nanti ekonomi negara akan setanding dengan negara-negara maju yang lain; Tidakkah saya mahu merebut peluang ekonomi yang ada? Apakah saya mahu pendapatan saya berada dalam keadaan statik? Adakah ianya salah kerajaan jika saya masih berada di kelas pertengahan? Tepuk dada, tanya diri.
