“When you're left wounded on Afganistan's plains and
the women come out to cut up what remains, Just roll to your rifle
and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier”
General Douglas MacArthur"
“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”
“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.” “Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.
“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”
“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .” “The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.
“Nobody ever defended, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
The Soldier stood and faced God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as bright as his brass
"Step forward you Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?"
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't
Because those of us who carry guns
Can't always be a saint."
I've had to work on Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,
The Soldier squared his shoulders and said
And I never passed a cry for help
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, you Soldier,
You've borne your burden well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."
Malaysiakini : PAS Youth today condemned the holding of concerts in Malaysia, which it claims to be happening “again and again” (bertalu-talu).
“The holding of concerts, again and again, is madness and invites Allah’s anger. Stop it. “Don’t
challenge the emotions of Muslims. Authorities should listen to the
voice of Muslims before incurring Allah’s wrath,” said the wing’s chief
Ahmad Fadhli Shaari (above).
Ahmad Fadhli did not appear
to be referring to any particular concert, but his statement was made
less than 24 hours after the international singer Billie Eilish held a
concert at the Bukit Jalil National Stadium, Kuala Lumpur, last night.
Eilish’s maiden appearance in Malaysia saw fans crowding outside the
stadium yesterday morning, even though the concert only starts at night.
music scene in Malaysia has been ramping up, with concerts being held
once again as the Covid-19 pandemic reaches the “transition to endemic”
stage in Malaysia.
csk : Why will the Muslims be upset when non Muslims have a good time?
Should the non Muslims in other countries be upset when Muslims celebrate their festivals?
Malaysia is becoming absolutely paranoid
YellowRusa5552 : This fella thinks he is so righteous that he has a two way communication with the Almighty! God must have send him a Whatsapp message to say "I am angry!" Wonder what did God say to him about his party President?!
No one respect your party anymore because too much hypocrisy. God forbids corruption.But in 1mdb and the latest LCS scandal so quiet.
Clever voter : Most humans are brought up to believe that stealing, lying, manipulating, cheating, killing and so on are bad behaviours. Stealing state owned money or even indulgence in corrupt lifestyle practices are secretly endorsed, encouraged by dirty politicians, and many are from PAS. How does this compare to youths enjoying and watching their idols play favorite music? If anyone is to incur wrath of god, it would be the rotten practices of corrupt politicians?
1 Malaysia Dalam Bahaya : Corruption angers Allah more than entertainment like concert. No? Did PAS make a squeak about Najib’s sin? No, they kept very quiet.
Clever voter : Such statements made by a PAS leader is irrelevant but not new. Repeated call for a lifestyle as seen in Kelantan is repressive, and regressive. It's against the general principle of human rights. Music is generally seen as an entertainment. With internet youths follow their idols everywhere. The last thing they want is to admire repressive lifestyle advocated by PAS while it's leaders secretly bright lights across the river, and their obvious material wealth.
OCT : This is his stupid and dumbfounded view. Did Allah attended the concert to express his views? Was he summoned to meet Allah to listen to his advice and convey them to everyone? The other religions have no objections to any concerts as it promote an evening of entertainment. Nobody ask him to go to the concert. Just stay at home if you are not interest instead of poking fire. There is no need to ask the Govt to ban concerts if Muslims don't like it. There is already attempts to ban Bon Odori, Oktoberfest and in future maybe Xmas and CNY too. Keep your preferences or dislikes to yourself as others have a life to enjoy and be merry
