No Atheists
In A Foxhole

Rudyard Kipling

" ā€œWhen 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 soldierā€
General Douglas MacArthur

" ā€œWe are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.ā€

ā€œIt is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.ā€
ā€œOld soldiers never die; they just fade away.
ā€œThe soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,
for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.ā€
ā€œMay God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .ā€
ā€œThe object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

ā€œNobody ever defended, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
ā€œIt 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."

How to really boycott Israel

Malaysiakini : ā€œTherefore, as responsible and concerned Members of Parliament from Malaysia, we demand the following:ā€¦..ā€

Anonymously signed letter by opposition MPs, 2021

COMMENT | A young Malay grab rider who routinely communicates with me texted me recently, worried that the threat of boycotts would affect his livelihood.

He wanted to know who these people calling for boycotts on social media were and wondered if they were rich people because only rich people could care about something happening so far away. 

I told him nothing would come of these boycotts because, eventually, whatever homegrown economic issues would trump the fervour of the political class to gain mileage from the Palestinian issue. Not in those words, of course, but close enough.

Who are these people calling for boycotts, anyway? To the best of my knowledge, nobody from the political class has openly called for boycotts of local business enterprises.

Indeed, the political class has remained more or less silent on the issue of boycotts but has engaged in various controversial tactics of their own.

This is not to say that the current batch of political operatives have called for a boycott when they were not in power. In 2021, a group of opposition MPs anonymously signed a letter calling for an end to the Israeli aggression and upholding Palestinian rights. One of the ā€œdemandsā€ were as follows:

ā€œBoycott products/services of, and/or mobilise institutional pressure to divest from Israeli and international companies and banks that are complicit in Israeli war crimes and crimes against humanity.ā€

Calling for the boycott without having the gumption to carry out such policies (for oftentimes logical reasons) merely makes a mockery of the plight of Palestinians and provides ammunition for those who claim that supporters of the cause are insincere.

What this means is that those MPs who signed this letter would be judged on their fidelity to the Palestinian cause by how they carried out this agenda in Parliament, but more importantly, how they advocated redefining international and local partnerships based on the agenda of ending Israelā€™s apartheid policies.

Of course, since the letter was signed anonymously, we will never know if these political operatives have the courage of their convictions.

According to Communications and Digital Minister Fahmi Fadzil, there have been complaints by netizens that TikTok is censoring ā€œPalestinianā€ content but Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim recently boasted that he secured a proposed investment by TikTok, which was ā€œā€¦. quite bigā€.

So on the one hand, a big tech company is accused of censoring Palestinian content but on the other, it is welcomed into the Malaysian economic landscape with open arms.

Grab and McDonaldā€™s had to make donations to the Palestinian cause to demonstrate that they were not pro-Israel in what sounds more like extortion and not a humanitarian concern.

We see all these political operatives donning the Palestinian keffiyeh and shouting about the plight of the Palestinians but the reality is that the political class understands how boycotts would affect the majority polity, which is why they are too pusillanimous to call for boycotts when they are steering the good ship Malaysia.
