Now let's mesh everything what we've seen in then past few days:
Under the “Freedom Flotilla”, a ship, Mavi Marmara, containing humanitarian aid and lifeline supplies was attacked by a commando organized the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) at around 7 in the morning, Mecca time on the 31st of May 2010. Among the 19 killed 9 of them was from Turkey. The rest were injured. (Why do I sound like a broadcaster. LOL)
A second ship a.k.a Rachel Corrie, although not so bloody as it's later sister was ordered to re-route to a port in Israel after Israel Forces came storming at the ship. Alhamdullillah, there weren't any causalities, just some panic I guess. The Malaysians on board was sent to Jordan to be brought back to their country.
Now from my point of view, the story is all so interesting, because there are many questions to be raised from both sides.
Lets see firstly on our side, the so called “good side”, “Islamic side” or “Defender of Humanitarian side”. Call it what you like, the things I want to talk about here might be a little uncomfortable if you've been the person who shed tears and sweat trying to fight for this thing, or you've to the demonstrations held here in Kuala Lumpur. (I went one myself, at the Wilayah Perseketuan Mosque)
Ok, so maybe you have to give some credit to the political guys (especially our prime minister) whom went to the demonstrations. They were all shouting God knows what things making us more feeble and anxious to get our swords and guns out and run to the nearest war. But, this is were things doesn't make up much. Like, ok, the PM is supporting us, finally he has some senses to the Islamic World (Hope he asks his wife to wear a Hijab “properly” if they ever wanted to visit the holy lands) but where is all the talk taking them? Like Puh-lease, I've seen them even more exited when it comes to elections.
Some of us expected more action from the government, considering the fact that they are the ones who are governing this country, the power is in there finger tips (they just sign papers and stuff) for example send military escorts. What is the use of us actually buying a submarine or an aircraft carrier if we don't want to use it? It's like all talk and no work.
Right now, it's not just about the Malaysia, whole other countries have gone mute about such decisions.
I don't know where Pakistan and Iran went with there so- called “Nuclear Power” or Turkey's trying to find Justice or even Egypt which just merely “Opens a border”.
Looking at things at the silver lining, maybe we should give them some time to adjust at this point, re-thinking there views, maybe putting on a kopiah next time you go into Parliament, they are just people.
On the other hand, you might be able to see things a lot more brighter than before. There is this so called rumor that Turkey is re-grouping the old Empire. There is a meeting of 8 Presidents from Eurasian and Middle East States last Monday, Iran, Russia, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Turkey, Palestine are among the board that will be discussing on this issue of Israel invading International waters. Syria although not a member is invited as a guest.
One good news is to the fact that Turkey, under the leadership of Erdogan, is leaning more into an Islamist state. War between Turkey and Israel might be unavoidable. Let's just hope this time, Turkey won't be alone. The Islamic World is behind you..........
