Dreams I dream

To every dreams I dream
Of tenderness of a man’s word
That is merely a fantasy
Playing in the middle of summer rain

If to love wasn’t meant to be easy

Whatever happens, to myself
Promise me always,
That you will get up when you fall
That you will keep walking even in the darkest night
That you will always keep your words so that you hurt no one.

That you will always believe there is a better tomorrow…

What’s the basic and most fundamental reason of a country’s conflict?

I was wondering…

The murder of Palestinian people by the Israeli that is happening in Gaza right now are all over the news. It is the crime against humanity so I don’t, ever, call it a war, it’s a murder.

The world knows Israeli military occupies, invades and attacks Palestinian so they can claim the regions that are now under the Palestinian authority. However, is that the ONLY reason why they’re doing what they’re doing? Only the religion conflict? Or is there a gold digging motive hidden beneath all?

Gold digging motive
This is the most common reason of conflict that I observe so far. History teaches us a lot. One example is what we see in the US invasion to Iraq…if it’s not because of the abundant oil in the land of Iraq, why would the US bother spending millions (if not billions) of dollars into that? They must have expected the return for every cent they spend on that! It’s business after all…

Another example back in 2012, when the US invaded Iran as Iran was accused to have mass-destructive weapons, which was later found to be untrue. The real reason for the invasion: the opportunity to conquer oil in Iran. And again, it’s a matter of fortune.

The Religion Motive
Now the question is: is it possible if religion becomes the very basic and most fundamental reasons of country’s conflict without the gold digging motives behind it?

It is possible!

The Israelis (with majority of them being Jewish) are fear of the existence of Islam. They feel that they’re going to lose one day that they feel the need to attack defendless Gaza kids and women with their rockets. That way, they can stop the peaceful spread of Islam, they can conquer Gaza and ultimately, destroy the West Bank where Jerusalem (or Baitul Maqdis, Islam third holiest city) is located.

Two major motives of conflict? Which one do you think is the basic and most fundamental reasons of country’s conflict? Your heart knows.

Let’s stop the murder in Gaza.

It’s been a long time :)

Sepertinya waktu terasa berjalan begitu cepat, ketika saya menyadari bahwa blog yang saya posting terakhir adalah 3 tahun yang lalu. Sudah terlalu lama mungkin. Kerinduan saya untuk menulis pun sudah semakin memuncak.

Tiga tahun lalu, ketika saya memulai blog ini, saya masih seorang mahasiswa yang mengemban pendidikan di salah satu universitas di Belanda.

Saat ini, saya berdomisili di Kota Padang (ya, saya kembali merantau). Inilah kota dimana saya ditempatkan untuk bekerja oleh perusahaan. Namun sayang sekali, tak satupun dokumentasi dalam bentuk tulisan yang saya miliki selama 2 tahun terakhir ini. Hmm, paling tidak saya bisa mulai lagi dari sekarang. Better late than nothing, right? 😀

See you on the next post 🙂

lembayung langit senja

Satu malam atau satu hari

Yang terlihat hanya lembayung langit senja

Tak ada yang peduli juga

 

Saat satu detik senyum diperjuangkan

Saat kegelapan berteman dalam kesepian

Saat salah terasa benar

 

Bunyi denting nada kehidupan terus bergulir

Angan terasa begitu nyata meski semu adanya

Saat semua telah berlalu tapi tak habis ditelan oleh waktu…

Victory of Wilders = The Death of Freedom

Geert Wilders– a politician who is ridiculously paranoid of Islam and Islamization in Europe – had his biggest victory along with his PVV (Party for Freedom) in Dutch Parliamentary Election a few days ago. He won 1,5 million votes (15,5% of the total votes), making it the third-strongest political force in Netherlands with 24 seats in the parliament. It is indeed a big win for Wilders as he only had nine seats last period, but definitely a big lose for Dutch and the idea of multiculturalism and liberalism that they always  proud of. Are Wilders and his party just smart enough to brainwash the Dutch (who voted him) to follow the fear and hatred that he promotes all this time? Or people who voted him are just starting to become chauvinistic, by thinking one ethnicity is more superior than the other?

Suprisingly with this fact, 1 in 10 Dutch that we meet (those who seem embracing the idea of diversity) actually did make a vote for him! What an irony…

Considering the quite significant power that this party has (24 out of 150 seats) as well as the possibility of coalition with other parties, Muslims should be ready to do the counterattack when Wilders, with his discriminating policies againsts Muslims take place in the future. Some of the well-known policies including to stop immigration for Muslim countries (not from other countries), reduction in social benefits for new immigrants, and no-hijab country (if one still wants to wear, one should pay the religious tax of 1000euro or more). That’s just some of the examples, many (unexpected) more would come.

Whatever the reason is, I feel sorry for those who have completely lost their insanity, who listened to what Wilders says instead of what their hearts…
