They will still be poor and helpless

Dear Jihadists and Suicide Bombers,
Can you think of some economic solutions instead of bombing and killing people, no matter how many people you've killed, they still remain poor and helpless.
Or you can consider dedicating your entire life to serving the poor,let your good deeds outshine Mother Teresa's!
Don't die for Allah when you can't even live for yourself!

that's quite a poor writing about suicide bombers and a clear indication of lack in understanding of the real situation. if we're talking about palestinians, it was never about religion, it has always been about sovereignty. of course we can ridicule their method of retaliation since we sleep peacefully in our beds while rough men do acts of violence on our behalf. how are these people suppose to retaliate against massive fundings from the US for state-of-the-art long bow helicopters and precision missiles? some do this supposedly because of God, but war has been waged for eons in the name of god, i.e. the crusades. suicide bombing may seem to you as an act of cowardice, but so is assasinating people in the thousands with carpet bombing and displacing people of their rightful territory.

Dear Opcharlie:
Thanks for your comment! I travel extensively to many parts of Indonesia and the Philippine, I personally talked to Jihadists there, you can get a direct answer from them. Go to Afganistan and Pakistan and talk to the Jihadists there...How they have indoctrinated the young to die for them.
What i am writing about is the fight between Shia'te and Sunni sects of Islam, please read my article...

My friend's father was killed in Iran-Iraq war.

For Palestine struggle to gain Independence, they could have gained it easily long ago, but they have been used and betrayed by all the Muslim countries in Arabian Peninsula to be placed at the frontier to create tensions and animosity between Muslims and the Jews.

Muslims and Jews are both the descendants of Ibrahim and they share similar customs (they don't eat pork, etc), there are less than 26 million of Jewish people in the world and the size of Israel is about the size of Johor state and it only occupies less 3% of land in the entire Arabian Peninsula.
If all the Muslims around the world "really" care for the plight of Palestinians, there are thousand of ways they can do to uplift the standard of living of Palestinians, on the contrary, the Arabian super-rich oil-producing countries want Palestine to be poor or at least seen to be poor, so that they can highlight the ill-treatment of Jewish people towards Palestinians...
If you would like to know more about it, i sincerely invite you to email me and we can talk about it, or debate professionally..

May the Peace of Allah reign in our country.Amin!

thanks for the reply. ya i've heard that side of the argument of which Arabs intentionally use Palestinians as a political propaganda. The Palestinians have nowhere to go, the Egyptians and Jordanians shut their borders down to them. The US pretends to be half interested to work the issue out, however it is in their best interest to maintain an unstable Middle East, lest no supply of energy or export of arms, both of which are huge sources of revenue for the bankrupt state. Of course, it's easy for us to talk about it and not appreciate the real plight. Imagine the most fundamental scenario of getting your house bulldozed by the invading army and IDF is the only 'Defence' force in the world to have bulldozers in their range of arsenal. thanks for the reply and keep in touch.

salam saudara Benjamin dan rakan Blogger..

Teringat semasa saya di UIA dahulu(5 tahun lepas), ada sesi 'debate' antara 2 pensyarah berkenaan isu di Palestin. tajuk nya ialah "Suicide Bombing - is it permissible?"

Pensyarah pengajian Fiqh & Usul Fiqh dengan tegas dan lantang mengatakan bahawa perlakuan 'bom bunuh diri' adalah haram dalam Islam dan berdosa besar bagi pelakunya, serta ia haruslah di kecam.

Ini kerana perlakuan membunuh diri tidak dapat diterima dalam Islam sedang Allah mahukan kita berusaha agar menjadi insan cemerlang yang memakmurkan bumi ini, dan bukan menjahanamkan orang lain.

Manakala bagi pensyarah pengajian Sejarah dan Tamaddun berpendapat bahawa perlakuan itu tidak salah jika anda tidak mendapat bantuan ketenteraan dan musuh terlalu kejam terhadap masyarakat anda.

Dalam hujah pensyarah itu, kita tiada hak mengatakan mereka zalim, berdosa besar, tidak berakhlak dan masuk neraka kerana perlakuan 'bom bunuh diri', sedang kita pula hidup senang lenang di sini, makan minum cukup, tempat tinggal tidak dirobohkan, serta anak bini dan keluarga tidak dibunuh di depan mata..

perdebatan ini cukup hangat sehingga ada para mahasiswa yang bertindak keluar dewan dan sebahagian lagi terlalu beremosi saling menuding jari antara satu sama lain.

Perdebatan berakhir dengan aman, namun kesimpulannya amat mengejutkan. iaitu, segala hal ini (kekacauan, pembunuhan dan huru-hara)adalah atas tanggungjawab masyarakat Arab di sekeliling Palestin!

Ini kerana jika masyarakat Arab ingin ambil semula Palestin, dan menyelamatkan orang2 di situ mereka pastilah telah berbuat demikian lama dahulu, namun ia tidak terjadi kerana mereka menganggap isu palestin adalah untuk orang Palestin dan bukan tanggungjawab mereka. akhirnya menyebabkan bangsa palestin yang serba kekurangan dan kedaifan mengambil tindakan nekad dengan mengorbankan nyawa mereka dengan bom!

Ia satu keputusan yang 'maha berat' tetapi mereka tidak ada pilihan lain. dengan berdiam diri, lambat laun, mereka juga akan mati terbunuh, baik di jalanraya atau semasa makan roti dirumah.

saya berpendapat perlakuan pengebom berani mati atau bom bunuh diri adalah salah dan tidak boleh dilakukan. namun jika saya yang berada di tempat mereka, saya sendiri tidak pasti apa agaknya tindakan yang perlu saya lakukan.

Berbeza pula keadaan di Iraq yang masing2 meletupkan diri kerana ketaksuban pada puak masing2 dan menganggap puak mereka lebih mulia dari puak lain - ini sudah terang2 haram disisi Islam. tiada puak yang lebih mulia dari puak lain, yg ada hanyalah Taqwa kepada Allah dan amal baik seseorang itu.

Namun sukar untuk kita mengerti apa yang ada dalam fikiran mereka kerana fahaman "Asabiyyah" bangsa Arab ini memang sangat tinggi. saya tahu ini kerana rakan2 saya juga ada dikalangan orang Arab Yaman, Syria, Palestin, Iraq, Saudi, Morocco dan lain2..

Ramadhan bakal berakhir, namun pertumpahan darah terus berlaku di dunia..bilakah semua ini akan berakhir??.

Saudara Johari
Assalamualaikum,
thanks for your comment! I appreciate your courage to speak up against killing the innocence.

Throughout the history of Islam, Muslims have killed MORE Muslims than others through wars and bombing, I simply want to urge all fellow Muslim friends to recognize it and put a stop toward killing our own Muslim brothers and sisters.

I shed my tears in canada when a Muslim friend of mine from Iran related to the suffering of Iran-Iraq war, his father was forced to fight the war and got killed, do you know how many Muslims had been killed throughout the fight between shi'te and sunni sects of Islamic faith until today? why we want to kill our own brothers and sisters just because we have different interpretation of Islam??

For the case of Palestine, do you know that there are only less than 14 million of Jewish people in the world (not 26 mil), you think Palestine can't achieve Independence with the help of all Muslims around the world?but are the surrounding Muslim countries really committed to the Palestinian struggle?? i doubt so! and Palestinians have been used and betrayed by super super rich oil Muslim countries to shield the bullet for them and look at how Syria, Jordan, Lebanon etc treated Palestinian refugees...they are not treating them as Muslim brothers and sisters, instead they are using the Palestinians. I have written to Malaysia Ministry of Foreign Affairs that we should take in at least 200 thousand Palestinian refugees, give them education in Malaysia, equip them with knowledge and employable skills so they can apply their full potential and be a constructive elements for their nation-building overseas. But our country is only too keen to bring in Indonesians!!

I am sincerely talking about the plight of Palestinian people and we could have many solutions to help them, but Muslims around the world are too preoccupied with money, power and self-interest... look at how Raja Petra Kamarudin is treated, you and I know many people are using religion for their own advantage. If Islam is the true Official Religion of Malaysia, we should NOT have any laws that goes against the teaching of Quran.

Who have killed Muslims, who have destroyed Muslim countries? not external power! it is the corrupt,totalitarian and autocratic Muslim regimes around the world that have made Muslim countries impoverished. The corruption in Pakistan, Afganistan, Indonesia, Iraq, Negria, Syria and many Muslim countries are terribly rampant, and some of these countries have denied women education, and children are deprived of basic nutrition and proper shelter. We can't always blame others for our mishaps, we must quiet down ourselves and do soul-searching, we must come back the spirit of repentance of Adam and Eve when they sinned against Allah, only then will we witness a revival of Islamic civilization in the world.

May Allah bless our country and His peace saturate into every aspect of our society, Amin!

Selamat Hari Raya.

Regards
benjamin

Surprise surprise. Mossad involved in conspiring against the Arabs? Remember Ariel Sharon and his infamous Unit 101. Clearly we can't label them all as one fit-for-all category.

Been reading the articles and comments. Well said.

The conflicts, disputes and senseless apprehensions that are brought upon our brothers and sisters by the ones that are supposedly Muslims themselves are appalling not to mention devastatingly oppressive.

This is followed by Muslims waging so called holy wars among themselves due to differences in accordance to their Islamic faiths that subsequently lead to the destruction of human life and all that revolves around it. On the notion of deprivation and using Islam as an avenue for personal gains, let us not delve further into that. What is happening to RPK speaks pure debauchery.

As a fellow Muslim, IMHO the current state of affairs be it in terms of suicide bombers and the likes, whether it is for religion or achieving sovereignty need to be addressed. Certainly we should aid them in any way possible as one day, we might be in their shoes. Auzubillah.

For starters, deal with the ones back home.

May Allah guide us back to His ways and salvage us from total disorientation. Insya'Allah.
