Bertukar pendapat sambil menikmati Roti Canai di Yala


Assalamualaikum dan Salam Sejahtera kepada semua…

Serangan terbaru ke atas Gaza, kezaliman berterusan ke atas Syria dan penindasan tanpa sempadan kepada penduduk Islam Rohingya terus menjadi topik utama dunia.

Ianya juga mendorong begitu ramai yang ingin turut terlibat menjadi sukarelawan bagi menawarkan bantuan samada dari segi tenaga, wang ringgit, kepakaran dan masa. Saya amat menghargainya dan mengucapkan ribuan terima kasih. Anda mempunyai jatidiri yang teguh, tahu dan mahu terlibat mengurangkan kesengsaraan dan kesukaran yang dialami oleh mereka yang serba kekurangan, yang tertindas dan teraniaya di luar sana. Syabas.

Saya mohon maaf kerana dalam keadaan terdekat ini, saya tidak mampu untuk menjawab setiap soalan satu persatu secara peribadi seperti dahulu, berada “on the move” dan berada ditempat yang tidak mempunyai coverage internet sedikit sebanyak menangguhkan kerja-kerja alam maya saya ini, justeru, saya memohon izin untuk menghantar kepada anda E-Majallah Malaysian Relief Agency (MRA) yang dikenali sebagai LAPANGAN bagi membolehkan anda semua mengikuti dan memahami apa yang berlaku didalam dunia kemanusiaan dan kesukarelaan, setidak-tidaknya apa yang berlaku didalam MRA itu sendiri.

Saya berjanji untuk menjadi lebih IT Savvy bagi menyampaikan maklumat terkini kepada anda semua., sekali lagi, maaf saya pohon kalau ada yang tertunggu-tunggu jawapan dari saya.

cinta di langit gaza & memoir tragedi memali

Aku membeli dua buah naskah buku yang diterbitkan oleh Jundi Resources.  Buku pertama – Cinta di langit Gaza – tulisan Ust. Riduan Mohamad Nor, buku yang mengisahkan perjalanan beliau berserta suka duka yang dilalui sepanjang melaksanakan misi bantuan kemanusiaan di berbagai buah tempat, antaranya – Lebanon, Acheh, Kashmir, Kemboja, Pakistan dan Bangladesh.  Juga dikongsi anekdot perjalanan beliau di merata pelusuk dunia.  Aku cuba juga untuk menulis pengalaman aku, tapi sering dihambat dengan lelah dan kesuntukan masa.  Mungkin aku yang tidak pandai mengurus masa…

Buku kedua pula, ditulis oleh Ust. Riduan Mohamad Nor berserta C.N Afghani, buku ini bertajuk duka – Memoir Tragedi Memali.  Aku tahu kisah Memali ini, dan aku ingat ketika itu aku masih di tingkatan satu.  Seperti rakyat yang lain, aku juga ditipu dan disuap dengan maklumat haram lagi palsu… hinggalah aku dapat menjejak letak berita yang sebenar.  Buku ini menjadi panduan untuk aku mengetahui kisah sebenar yang terjadi sebelum ianya menjadi sejarah songsang sepertimana perjuangan menuntut kemerdekaan ditulis.

FREE AZLAN – GPM send protest to Embassy of Egypt

FREE AZLAN

A demonstration will be held at 11am today infront of Embassy of Egypt in Jalan Rhu, Ampang to protest the detention of Maj (R) Azlan Muhammad Shariff in Cairo.

Dunia Kemanusiaan urged unconditional release for Mr. Azlan.  It was reported that the authority of Egypt was the party who had detained him and the Egypt intelligence had interrogated him.  Shockingly, CIA, MOSSAD and M15 was also involved in the interrogation.

This is not his first trip to Gaza and his mission to assist Palestine had been published in official webiste of Global Peace Mission a long time ago.

Egypt should be seen as a friend of Palestine and not as tools of Israel and America.

FREE AZLAN NOW!

Bebaskan Azlan – menghantar bantahan ke Kedutaan Mesir

AZLAN

Satu perhimpunan membantah penahanan aktivis kemanusiaan, Mej (B) Azlan Muhammad Shariff di Kaherah akan diadakan di Kedutaan Mesir yang terletak di Jalan Rhu, Ampang pada jam 11 pagi ini.

Dunia Kemanusiaan mendesak agar Sdr. Azlan dibebaskan tanpa syarat sesegera mungkin.  Dilaporkan bahawa Azlan telah ditahan oleh pihak berkuasa Mesir dan telah disoal siasat oleh wakil agensi perisikan Mesir dan mengejutkan lagi wujudnya pembabitan secara langsung wakil dari CIA, MOSSAD dan M15.

Azlan bukanlah kali pertama berada di bumi Gaza dan misi bantuannya ke Palestin ini telah lama diwar-warkan oleh laman sawang rasmi Global Peace Malaysia.

Mesir seharusnya dilihat sebagai sahabat kepada Palestin dan bukannya sebagai balaci atau pencacai kepada Israel dan Amerika.

BEBASKAN AZLAN SEKARANG!

Israel targets human groups

Jonathan Cook, Foreign Correspondent

August 03. 2009

      NAZARETH // In a bid to staunch the flow of damaging evidence of war crimes committed during Israel’s winter assault on Gaza, the Israeli government has launched a campaign to clamp down on human rights groups, both in Israel and abroad.

      It has begun by targeting one of the world’s leading rights organisations, the US-based Human Rights Watch (HRW), as well as a local group of dissident army veterans, Breaking the Silence, which last month published the testimonies of 26 combat soldiers who served in Gaza.

      Additionally, according to the Israeli media, the government is planning a “much more aggressive stance” towards human rights groups working to help the Palestinians.

      Officials have questioned the sources of funding received by the organisations and threatened legislation to ban support from foreign governments, particularly in Europe.

      Breaking the Silence and other Israeli activists have responded by accusing the government of a “witch hunt” designed to intimidate them and starve them of the funds needed to pursue their investigations.

      “This is a very dangerous step,” said Mikhael Mannekin, one of the directors of Breaking the Silence. “Israel is moving in a very anti-democratic direction.”

      The campaign is reported to be the brainchild of the far-right foreign minister, Avigdor Lieberman, currently facing corruption charges, but has the backing of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

      Early last month, Mr Lieberman used a press conference to accuse non-profit organisations, or non-governmental organisations, of replacing diplomats in setting the international community’s agenda in relation to Israel. He also threatened reforms to curb the groups’ influence.

      A week later, Mr Netanyahu’s office weighed in against Human Rights Watch, heavily criticising the organisation for its recent fund-raising activities in Saudi Arabia.

      HRW has pointed out that it only accepts private donations, and has not accepted Saudi government funds, but Israeli officials say all Saudi money is tainted and will compromise HRW’s impartiality as a human rights watchdog in its treatment of Israel.

      “A human rights organisation raising money in Saudi Arabia is like a women’s rights group asking the Taliban for a donation,” Mark Regev, a government spokesman, told the right-wing Israeli daily newspaper the Jerusalem Post.

      HRW recently published reports arguing that the Israeli army had committed war crimes in Gaza, including the use of white phosphorus and attacking civilian targets.

      HRW is now facing concerted pressure from Jewish lobby groups and from leading Jewish journalists in the US to sever its ties with Saudi donors. According to the Israeli media, some Jewish donors in the US have also specified that their money be used for human rights investigations that do not include Israel.

      Meanwhile, Israel’s foreign ministry is putting pressure on European governments to stop funding many of Israel’s human rights groups.

      As a prelude to a clampdown, it has issued instructions to all its embassies abroad to question their host governments about whether they fund such activities.

      Last week the foreign ministry complained to British, Dutch and Spanish diplomats about their support for Breaking the Silence.

      The testimonies collected from soldiers suggested the Israeli army had committed many war crimes in Gaza, including the use of Palestinians as human shields and firing white phosphorus shells over civilian areas. One soldier called the army’s use of firepower “insane”.

      The Dutch government paid nearly 20,000 euros to the group to compile its Gaza report, while Britain funded its work last year to the tune of £40,000 (Dh245,663).

      Israeli officials are reported to be discussing ways either to make it illegal for foreign governments to fund “political” organisations in Israel or to force such groups to declare themselves as “agents of a foreign government”.

      “Just as it would be unacceptable for European governments to support anti-war NGOs in the US, it is unacceptable for the Europeans to support local NGOs opposed to the policies of Israel’s democratically elected government,” said Ron Dermer, a senior official in Mr Netanyahu’s office.

      He added that many of the groups were “working to delegitimise the Jewish state”.

      Jeff Halper, the head of the Israeli Committee Against House Demolitions, said the government’s position was opposed to decades-old developments in human rights monitoring.

      “Every dictator, from Hitler to Milosevic, has said that there must be no interference in their sovereign affairs, and that everyone else should butt out. But international law says human rights are universal and cannot be left to individual governments to interpret. The idea behind the Geneva Conventions is that the international community has a duty to be the watchdog on human rights abuses wherever they occur.”

      Mr Halper, whose organisation last year received 80,000 euros from Spain to rebuild demolished Palestinian homes, was arrested last year for sailing to Gaza with peace activists to break the siege of Gaza.

      Other groups reported to be in the foreign ministry’s sights are: B’Tselem, whose activities include providing Palestinians with cameras to record abuses by settlers and the army; Peace Now, which monitors settlement building; Machsom Watch, whose activists observe soldiers at the checkpoints; and Physicians for Human Rights, which has recently examined doctors’ complicity in torture.

      Mr Mannekin added: “The government cannot suppress information about what happened in Gaza by shutting us down.

      “You can’t send 10,000 soldiers into battle and not expect that some of the details will come out. If it’s not us doing it, it’ll be someone else.”

      The government’s current campaign follows a police raid on the homes of six Israeli women peace activists in April.

      The women, all members of New Profile, a feminist organisation that opposes the militarisation of Israeli society, were arrested and accused of helping Israeli youngsters to evade the draft. The women are still waiting to learn whether they will be prosecuted.
