A Momentary Thought

Gaza is still being hit with new strikes amidst Israel was poised to unilaterally halt 22 days war on Hamas that has killed 1,200 Palestinians. This is the time I have come to a realization that newly-elected-hailed Obama is no different from Bush. Though he is yet to step in officially into the Oval Office of the West Wing of the White House, I can tell he is not capable of doing anything, other than being a good speaker or narrator. I guess everyone knows that the only way for any candidate being eligible to vie for presidential post, is by pledging loyalty to Israel. It is a requisite since they are the deciding voters in both Democratic and Republican.

Recently, Bush said America is respected for its compassions, and this is a reply from Paul Craig Roberts, former Assistant Secretary of the Treasury in the Reagan Administration, in his article “The Humiliation of America” –

“The compassion of bombing a UN school for girls?

The compassion of herding 100 Palestinians into one house and then shelling it?

The compassion of bombing hospitals and mosques?

The compassion of depriving 1.5 million Palestinians of food, medicine, and energy?

The compassion of violently overthrowing the democratically elected Hamas government?

The compassion of blowing up the infrastructure of one of the poorest and most deprived people on earth?

The compassion of abstaining from a Security Council vote condemning these actions?

And this is a repeat of what the Israelis and Americans did to Lebanon in 2006, what the Americans did to Iraqis for six years and are continuing to do to Afghans after seven years. And still hope to do to the Iranians and Syrians.

Apart from that, he added in his writing of how superior is the master-servant relationship between Ehud Olmert (being the master) and Bush.

"Early Friday morning the secretary of state was considering bringing the cease-fire resolution to a UNSC vote and we didn't want her to vote for it," Olmert said. "I said 'get President Bush on the phone.' They tried and told me he was in the middle of a lecture in Philadelphia. I said 'I'm not interested, I need to speak to him now.' He got down from the podium, went out and took the phone call."

"Let me see if I understand this," wrote a friend in response to news reports that Israeli Prime Minister Olmert ordered President Bush from the podium where he was giving a speech to receive Israel's instructions about how the United States had to vote on the UN resolution. "On September 11th, President Bush is interrupted while reading a story to school children and told the World Trade Center had been hit--and he went on reading. Now, Olmert calls about a UN resolution when Bush is giving a speech and Bush leaves the stage to take the call. There exists no greater example of a master-servant relationship."

Honestly I’m really not into gathering and protesting over something, but when the assembly was held protesting Israeli strikes on Gaza and the whole community of the university congregated, it proved the solidarity of the ummah, I could not be happier, no one could be happier. That’s the proof of how unite we can be. Few resolutions were made and I swear in the name of Allah, I’ll steadfast to the resolutions that include mainly boycotting Americans and Israeli products. I don’t care if I have to refrain from eating those fatty and killing things, even if I have to stop drinking my regular drink.

The Jews have taught us one great lesson, that if we have proper planning and perfectly executing the task, we can succeed. I’m not sure since when did the effort of taking the Palestinian land begin, but I heard they were trying to acquire the land, if not through diplomatic channel but by force, begin since the era before the collapse of Empire of Uthmaniyyah.

Our dean said that the determination, the spirit must be constantly ignited. Though I may not be the right person to tell you this, but if we really care, really care of our Muslim brothers and sisters in Palestine, by now we should have had the spirit of studying hard and be willing to be selfless for the sake of ummah. There’s a lot that can be achieved if we let go all the tiny little spat, wasting time doing unnecessary things and spending more time doing social works or doing some readings in preparation for being forward-looking generation. Finally, the credibility of UIA in producing up-to-expectation graduates has been questioned. Check out latest Milennia edition.
