“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."
Malaysia abstains in UN vote on China's Muslim Uyghurs - For all the BIG talk about Ummah, Malaysia Chickened Out
Friday, October 07, 2022
Malaysiakini : The 47-member UN Human Rights Council has rejected a motion to hold a
debate on alleged human rights abuses by China against Muslim Uyghurs
in Xinjiang in an unprecedented victory for Beijing.
The vote - 19
against, 17 in favour, and 11 abstentions, including Malaysia - is only
the second time in the council's 16-year history that a motion has been
The Western-led motion had demanded a debate on the
alleged rights abuses against Muslim Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities
in China's western Xinjiang region. Co-sponsors for the motion are UK,
Turkey, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Australia and
Nations voting against the motion were Bolivia,
Cameroon, China, Cuba, Eritrea, Gabon, Indonesia, Ivory Coast,
Kazakhstan, Mauritania, Namibia, Nepal, Pakistan, Qatar, Senegal, Sudan,
the United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan and Venezuela.
Kuniyo : All the bahasa speaking stunt and shout to defence palestinian and rohingya are just noise to attract votes from kampung. It doesn't matter when it mattered most. Money comes first, cash is king.
Proarte : Arab Palestininan citizens in Israel have equal rights and generally never opt to emigrate to Muslim countries who are quick to attack Israel's human rights record.
Contrast this with the widespread report of over a million Uyghurs who are Chinese citizens being sent to concentration camps to be rehabilitated from the "disease" of Islam and their traditional Uighur culture. There are even allegations of torture and murder.
The hypocrisy of Muslim nations and those economically beholden to China was seen in this recent UN vote. It has given Israel a huge boost because its treatment of Palestinians in the occupied territories will now be swept under the carpet by previously vociferous Muslim nations who voted in favour of China or who abstained.
Next time there is a vote on Israel's human rights record, the votes by Muslim countries against Israel will ring hollow because they betrayed their fellow Muslims in China despite the widespread allegations of anti-Muslim human rights abuses of China's Uyghur citizens.
Dummies Dhimmi : Typical cowardly government. Jump up and down for the Palestinians and the Muslims in Kashmir but in China keep their mouth shut. Its never about the defense of the religion but what you can gain from it by how you make or not make 'noise' about it.
Its either China gave moon cake to Malaysian politicians to gum up their jaws or there's nothing to gain politically by objecting to the ill treatment of the Muslims there.
RedQuokka9442 : Wow, none of the Muslim countries are in support of their brothers when it comes to the crunch. All good in paying lips service when it doesn't hurt...
KSK : Fair Play:
>>"Malaysia made the right stand by doing what they did. Make friends, not enemies."
Exactly, and to hell with the Uyghurs. Who cares about them?
MazilamaniIt is strange to note that most Muslim majority countries either opposed or abstained from the UN vote for China Muslims(Uyghurs)including Malaysia. It is outrageously strange..
Why is Hadi or PAS not saying much about the plight of Uyghur Muslims, who have suffered much under the Chinese authorities. We have known it for a long time, that these people were rounded up, encamped and detained to undergo ''re-education''.
Even more strange is the fact the motion is being supported by Western Christian nations.
When it concerns a country like China, PAS and Hadi remain silent, but why such arrogance with the Nons in Malaysia. So PAS knows who it should not offend.
GrayWhale2704 : Double standard again! Advertisement for Palestinian support everywhere, yet no nerve to cast a vote for debate?! The Muslims in China aren’t Muslims?
Kepala Tak Centre : Will PAS, Umno and Islamist go down to Padang Merbok to protest? What is Hadi Awang's stand? Anyhow, Hadi Awang himself can't decide whether to be with BN or PN.
RedGopher0486 : What is the point of sitting in the Human Rights Council if not willing to discharge responsibility without feat or favour.....
Stay Safe : Ok to support stone throwing and rocket shooting Palestinians but no to non-violent Uyghurs... ? Very funny way of practicing their religious jurisprudence ya..!
Quigonbond : Well, at least this time they are consistent with their racist attitudes at home. But Muslims at home, you know what this means about the cynicism of Ummah unity especially PAS.
