Charity begins at home. I pray that the same charity work is done to the poor and marginalised Malaysians. There are many unfortunate people in the country who need help – food, clothing, medicine, schooling, scholarships, loans, housing, jobs, love and care. The rich Arab countries are not helping the Gazans out of hate for Hamas. They are helping their own people who need help. THE Iranians are doing their bid – but more on the arm supply aspect to set up a syiah base there. Egypt and other Arab countries fread this. They are tacitly supporting the Gaza blockade.… Read more »


May AlLah always protect you all, and may the aid cargo be delivered into the Ghazzah people safely! All the best!


I’m all conflicted, now that I’ve read Matthias Chang was on the Rachel Corrie:


It was bad enough when I found out who had sponsored the boat, but now… I realise if you’re a human rights protester, you’re unlikely to have the kind of incomes that are so readily available to the human rights abusers, but surely there’s a limit to how low one should have to stoop? Who will the next boat be sponsored by – Kim jong-Il and Thaksin Shinawatra? To be followed shortly by a submarine with aid-laden torpedoes from Mugabe and Kim jong-Il?


Already boarded by Israelis forces at this time of commenting 6.18 pm


Whichever ship that comes into Israel water must be inspected by the Israeli authority. This is international practice. If the ship carries medicine, food and clothings for the people it should get the nod from the Israeli authority. Just follow the norm. If there are other ‘unwanted elements’ in the ship, those elements have to be weeded out. Those on the ship should concede to Israeli inspection. What is there to hide if you are honestly doing a charity work? It’s when you don’t concede, the Isrealis will suspect that there is more than aids in the ship. Egypt and… Read more »


One of the most ominous aspects of the Charter however, is this Hadith: Moreover, if the links have been distant from each other and if obstacles, placed by those who are the lackeys of Zionism in the way of the fighters obstructed the continuation of the struggle, the Islamic Resistance Movement aspires to the realisation of Allah’s promise, no matter how long that should take. The Prophet, Allah bless him and grant him salvation, has said: “The Day of Judgement will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews), when the Jew will hide behind stones and… Read more »


The principles of the Hamas are stated in their Covenant or Charter, given in full below. Following are highlights. “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it, just as it obliterated others before it.” (The Martyr, Imam Hassan al-Banna, of blessed memory). “The Islamic Resistance Movement believes that the land of Palestine is an Islamic Waqf consecrated for future Muslim generations until Judgement Day. It, or any part of it, should not be squandered: it, or any part of it, should not be given up. ” “There is no solution for the Palestinian question except… Read more »


These are fanatics & racists who are not thinking right. Israel is responsible for the security of Gaza & the West Bank. They are not going to let anyone just march into Gaza. There’s such a thing as Immigration controls & customs checks. Mahathir should have his coconut examined for possible mental illness. Anwar is just trying to use the crowd at the Kampung Baru mosque for Fri prayers to play the big hero especially in view of his ongoing sodomy trial. At the National Mosque only 200 people including probably about 100 curious onlookers joined Khairy J. Where were… Read more »


i do hope the many Twitter heroes heed the lesson of the boy who cried wolf.

Hours ago they were sending out “OFFICIAL” “Rachel Corrie boarded by isrealis” “No casulties, thank God!” nessages.

When in truth the Isreali navy was only tailing the ship and jamming communications.

Confirm facts first lah. Rumours spewed out as OFFICIAL news is not doing any good to anyone.

Many twitter users have been tagged as having zero credibility, and they brought it upon thmeselves.


I can’t take my eyes off this! It reminds me a bit of Jeff Wayne’s Musical Version of the War of the Worlds – the “Thunder Child” part:


Maybe I’m alone on this one – 1978 was a long time ago!


Private Khairy to the Rescue

“If another attack happens, we will rise. I am sure the people here will sacrifice our lives to fight for this.” There were assurances from him that: “We will not only demonstrate, but we will also make sure that we go to Gaza to defeat the Israeli regime.”
