The Curse of the Israelites

A UN report has dammned Israel for war crimes during the recent assault on Gaza. So what does Israel wants to do? They want to amend the International law of War, also known as the Hague Conventions so that they can do whatever they want. Look at this sheer arrogance of the Israelis. If the whole universe does not suit them, they will try to change the universe itself. This arrogance has been mentioned many times in the Quran as the downfall of the Israelites many times in the past and it will eventually lead to another more fatal one in the future.

For those of you who are despairing of the genocide and ethnic cleansing being done by Israel on Palestinians, fear not. The forces of history (and Allah) are stronger than any weapons that the Israelis possess. How did the Jewish people survived more than a thousand years of pogroms, genocide and discrimination by Europeans? They survived because they were everywhere. If one country decides to wipe them out, they just move to another. Case in point, when the Muslim Moors were pushed out of Spain by the Reconquistas, the Jews who were living there in peace under Muslim rule, were persecuted and decided to escape to Muslim Turkey.

Now however, they have rashly decided to put all of their eggs into one basket. Instead of being everywhere, they are now concentrated into one small area, surrounded by enemies. Unlike the surrounding countries, Israel does not have a lot of natural resources and depends on the US to prop it up. What happens if the US collapses? Such a scenario is unthinkable a decade ago, when the US claimed "victory" over the Soviet Union when in truth, the Soviets defeated themselves.

The US, under Reagan, goaded the Soviets into spending more money than they can afford into their military until finally the Soviet economy collapse. Now, we are seeing the same thing happening to the US with its "war on terror" and "al-Qaeda". The US is literally printing away money to fund this war, a war that it can never win because there is no one to declare victory over. The US is also spiralling into paranoia, creating ever stricter anti-terrorism laws that chips away at their citizen's freedom and rights. Already the US are using torture and assassinations, methods that it used to condemn the Soviets of doing. This is not sustainable and like the Soviets, they will eventually collapse. This is nothing new of course. Through out history, empires have risen and fallen. The mightiest empire in history, the British Empire, eventually fell, so why not the American empire?

Coming back to Israel, if you find yourself surrounded by enemies, the wise action is to make peace with them or at least divide them so that they will not focus on you. Instead, Israel in its arrogance, decides to poke the beehive even when it is stuck in the quicksand, confident that US will remain supreme for eternity. Mark my words, when the US finally collapses as a superpower, the Muslim world will swoop down on them like vultures onto carrion. Since the Israelis have conveniently gathered into one place, they will reap the rewards of their arrogance.

Look What I found

Look what I found. I was reading today's New Zealand Herald's Sports Section when I spotted this ad for "Tomcat Ali". That is a nice anglicisation of the Tongkat Ali. Now, Malaysians of course know (too much) about Tongkat Ali and its aphrosidiac properties. I think it is funny that the manufacturer of this particular supplement chose this name.

Been very busy these past few weeks, what with the progress report deadline coming up but I just can't resist posting this super-awesome picture. It's the former Prime Minister of Japan, Junichiro Koizumi, who will be appearing in the next Ultraman movie as the "Ultraman King". I was a child of the 80's and Ultraman was a big part of a Malaysian boy's life back then. I remembered play fighting with my younger brother as Ultraman vs alien monsters. I also regularly cut religious school and sneak back home to watch Ultraman on tv. Glad to see that the franchise is still going strong.


About This Blog

Salam and hello. I have created this blog to post my personal views. Some of you may know me as the creator of Waikatomalaysians.wordpress.com. I have been maintaining that blog for I think more than 2 years now and it has grown beyond the original personal website that I have started. That blog has taken a life of its own and after some discussion with some of the community members, I feel it is best if I create a new blog where I can freely express my personal views. This is to differentiate my own views than that of the rest of the community. I will start to migrate most of the recent "personal view-articles" from the Waikatomalaysians blog to this blog. I will still maintain the Waikatomalaysians blog until I leave NZ, after which it will be passed on to someone else. This I feel, is the best way forward.

I have chosen the name Roket Botol (bottle rocket) for this blog because of my, uh, "experience" with this type of fireworks, as the scars on my hands prove. I have had great fun with rocket fireworks when I was a kid, though on hind sight, I was lucky to make it alive. This blog will be more of a personal one, with a more casual tone of voice than the Waikatomalaysians blog. It will also occasionally be more controversial. I would like to keep people to still visit the Waikatomalaysians blog and not turn off anyone by my personal views. This blog is currently under construction and I will experiment with the layout for a while. So, thank you for visiting, and you are always welcome to comment.
