Outraged

it has been a while... i know. i'd say i don't have the time but that would be bullshit . i'd say my internet n phone line was down but that only happens most of the time.

so i'd say some of the time when my internet was up, i didn't have the time... nor the inspiration to write.

i'd say i'm glad to be here because i live in a peaceful country despite the recession, political disputes that kept on rising until it bore us out of our wits! but i'd also say that i'm not...

as we all laughed and celebrated the passing of 2008 on the New Year's eve, our brothers in Islam were screaming... mourning... over, not the passing of 2008, but over the passing of their loved ones. this... so-called... war over terrorists is just a cliche that has been used over and over again by the countries with greater power. i may not see eye to eye with certain people but if innocent civilians and children are categorized as terrorists and deserved to be murdered without mercy during the course of this war, i'd be more than happy to shut up.

but anyway, define terrorist? a man's hero may be another man's terrorist.

so from what most of the world is seeing is that there is some sort of a hidden propaganda.

i don't want to just say that i'm outraged and i want to do something about it than just sign petitions and send my prayers... to our brothers in Islam...

Very sad, isn't it, Awin? Even schools can be targeted, regardless whether it's empty or full of people, either innocent children or actual terrorists. No wonder international media is barred.

But what's even sadder are the individuals that choose to not take action at all, since they're too afraid to be seen as terrorists to be heroes.

It's kind of hard to explain it myself since I have no right to say I can imagine such pain... but I can feel and though it's not enough, I'm glad I can reply to your blog.

Bismillah...

yeahhh... like i said 'a man's hero may be another man's terrorist' and vice versa right?
there are lawful ways to settle this than violence and murder. and when they chose to neglect the lawful alternative, it would only seem like they have some sort a hidden propaganda.
it's just heartbreaking... not just to say as a Muslim... but as a human being... even if the person dying is an innocent Christian, i would be sad too...
