Malaysia Condemns Israeli Raid On Gaza Aid Flotilla

PUTRAJAYA, May 31 (Bernama) -- Perdana Global Peace Organisation (PGPO) chairman Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad condemned Israel's interception of an aid flotilla bound for the blockaded Gaza Strip Monday.

"I feel very angry that the Israelis have used force against people totally unarmed. I am sure the Israelis will say that these people are carrying weapons. That is ridiculous," he told a media conference here.

"We have made certain that they are all non-combatant and they come from many parts of the world including America and Europe.

"Their intention is to travel in boats to deliver the supply to Gaza. They know that the Israelis may try to stop them, but we don't expect the Israelis to resort to such violence as to shoot with live bullets.

"The Israelis claim these people have sharp objects. I don't know what is meant by sharp objects," he said.

The flotilla, originally made up of nine ships, was organised by pro-Palestinian groups and a Turkish human rights organisation.

One of the ships, Mavi Marmara, was attacked by Israeli soldiers Monday morning, near Gaza, with two Malaysians -- a journalist and a cameraman from Astro Awani -- on board and their fate is still unknown.

However, six PGPO representatives who are in another ship, are safe.

Dr Mahathir said his order to the PGPO representatives was to go ahead and pull back if there is warning from the Israeli army.

Updating the location of the three PGPO ships, the former prime minister said they were still in the Mediterranean on the way to Gaza.

He said two ships broke down, thus making them a bit far behind to join the other six ships that gathered in Cyprus earlier.

"It will take at least three days for them (Malaysian ships) to reach Gaza," he added.

Asked on his message to United States President Barack Obama following the incident, Dr Mahathir said: "He could make promises during the elections like in Malaysia too. Especially when you thought you were not going to win, you made more promises. When you have won, you find that you cannot fulfill the promises.

"I have said this before. I never thought Obama would be able to do anything against Israel because when addressing the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (IPAC), a Jewish lobby group, he was reported to have expressed continued support for Israel," he said.

Obama had previously said he was promoting a more stable and prosperous Middle East in the United States' long-term national security and economic interests.

Meanwhile, the Malay Consultative Council and 126 non-governmental organisations (NGOs) will hold a peaceful demonstration and hand over a protest note against the Israeli aggression to the US embassy at 11am Tuesday.

At a press conference here Monday, Pertubuhan Peribumi Perkasa Malaysia (Perkasa) president Datuk Ibrahim Ali said they would also perform "hajat" prayers and hold a "tahlil" session at the Kampung Baru Mosque at 7.15 Tuesday where Dr Mahathir is also expected to attend.

Ibrahim said as Malaysia had no diplomatic relations with Israel, the rally organisers wanted the US ambassador here to pass on the protest note to the Israeli prime minister.

He said Israel had become arrogant and brutal because it was supported by the big powers, especially the US.

"I am urging all Malaysians who condemn such brutality and join our peaceful demonstration tomorrow," he said.

Among the NGOs involved are the Muslim Consumers Association of Malaysia (PPIM) and Federation of Peninsular Malay Students (GPMS).

Umno Youth also strongly condemned the Israeli attack on the aid flotilla, saying the killing of the volunteers was committed in international waters and was against international law, thus proving that the "Israel Zionist regime is a brutal regime that has no respect for the law."

In a statement issued here Monday, the movement said the security reason given by Israel for the attack was totally unacceptable.

"How could these aid volunteers be regarded as a threat to Israel as they are on a humanitarian mission for the people of Gaza who have been suffering for long under Israel's economic sanctions," it said.

Umno Youth is urging the Malaysian Foreign Ministry to demand that the United Nations Security Council take the sternest action against Israel, and calling on the international community to condemn the atrocity.

Malaysian for Peace chairman Datuk Ahmad Zaki Zahid in condemning the attack, said: "The action of the Zionist regime will cause untold harm beyond the attack and will incite anger and hatred across the globe among Muslims and non-Muslims alike."

Ahmad Zaki prays for the aid flotilla not to be further harmed and that the people of Gaza will ultimately receive the aid that these brave individuals try to send to them.


What the eff?? Kapal misi bantuan kemanusiaan pun nak serang?? Nak hantar ubat n makanan je pun, bukannya bom ngan meriam.

Bawak benda tajam?? Ingat benda tajam tu boleh sumpit sampai ke kapal terbang ko ke?!! Ko ni lagi propa dari Azwan Ali tau x?

Setiap yang berlaku pasti ada hikmahnya. marilah sama2 kita doakan keselamatan dan kesejahteraan mereka yang berada di atas kapal dan rakyat Palestin di Gaza.

Two friends run into each other while walking their dogs. One suggests lunch. The other says, "They won't let us in a restaurant with pets." Undeterred, the first guy and his German shepard head into the restaurant. The maitre d' stops them, saying, "Sir, you can't bring your dog in here."
"But I'm blind." the man replied, "and this is my guide dog. The maitre d' apologizing profusely, shows both man and dog a table. His friend waits five minutes, then tries the same routine. "You have a chihuahua for a guide dog?" the sceptical maitre d' says. "A chihuhua?" the man says. "Is that what they gave me?"


Four men go on a hunting trip. The only hotel in the area is almost full, so they have to bunk two to a room. No one wants to share a room with Joe because he snores, so the others decide to take turns.
The first man stays with Joe and comes to breakfast the next morning with his hair a mess and his eyes bloodshot. "What happened to you?" ask his friends. "Joe snored so loudly I just sat up and watched him all night." he moans.
The following evening, it is the second chap's turn. He also looks awful the next morning. "Oh man, that Joe shakes the roof." he says. "I sat up and watched him all night too." The third night is Frank's turn, a burly ex-rugby player: a man's man.
Next morning he comes down to breakfast looking very fresh. "Good morning." he says brightly. The first two men are incredulous, "Wow, what happened?"
"Well," says Frank. "We got ready for bed, I tucked Joe in, wished him sweet dreams and kissed him in the forehead. He sat up and watched me all night."

tukar template lagi. sempena World Cup (WC) yang akan tiba minggu depan. yiehaaa~!

Entri ini khusus untuk mereka yang tak pernah tahu atau tak brape nak tahu apa itu WC atau dengan erti kata lain
"World Cup Guide for Dummies".
So, here goes....

Apa itu WC?

Nama penuhnya ialah Fifa a/l World Cup. Sebab kali ini diadakan pada tahun 2010 dan di Afrika Selatan, maka dipanggil 2010 Fifa World Cup South Africa.
WC ialah sejenis pertandingan bola sepak antarabangsa yang melibatkan negara2 di seluruh dunia.

Bila WC ni diadakan?
WC diadakan 4 tahun sekali. Last WC ialah di Germany tahun 2006 dan akan datang punya WC ialah di Brazil tahun 2014. Tahun ini, WC akan diadakan bermula 11 Jun-11 Julai.

Menang dapat apa?
Menang dapat piala la sayang oi~ takkan la hamper power root.

ni ialah rupa bentuk pialanya. piala ni mula digunakan tahun 74. sebelum ni piala lain. nak tau apa rupa bentuk piala sebelum ni sila la google sendiri. Nama negara2 yang menang akan diukir kat bawah trofi tuh. Contoh "1994 Brazil". So, bila trofi tu berdiri tegak tak nampak la namanya. Dari 1974 - 2006, sembilan WC telah diadakan dan hanya 5 negara saja yang berjaya menempa nama kat trofi tu; Brazil, Argentina, Jerman, Perancis dan Itali. So, setiap kali ada negara menang, nama diorang akan diukir kat bawah trofi tu sampai la penuh. Fifa bajet2 dalam tahun 2038 akan penuhlah bawah trofi tu. Lepas tu, diorang akan tukar piala ke tak, aku pun xtau. Pegi tanya sendiri kat Fifa.

Cane nak masuk WC?

Ko ingat isi borang J je dah bley masuk WC? ish3. silap besar tuh. Mula2 mesti la ada saringan dulu. Saringan diadakan kat 6 zon yang Fifa dah tetapkan:
Africa Asia North, Central America and Carribean South America Oceania Europe Dalam banyak2 negara yang bertanding, 32 negara je yang akan layak masuk final. Kuota negara yang akan masuk final bagi setiap zon adalah atas budi bicara Fifa. Kalau ada yang x puas hati dengan format ni, sila rujuk terus kat kaunter pertanyaan diorang. Final tournament lak terbahagi kepada dua bahagian. 1st part ialah 'group stage'. Semua 32 negara akan dibahagikan kepada 8 kumpulan berdasarkan ranking, kedudukan geografi dan lain2 lagi. *aku pun x brape sure, gi google sendiri* Setiap negara akan main 3 match dalam group masing2 dan 2 negara dengan mata tertinggi akan advance ke 2nd part iaitu 'knockout stage'. Ni kira kalah mati la. Negara yang menang akan terus bermain, yang kalah sila packing balik kampung.

Malaysia tak layak ke jadi tuan rumah WC?

Cik kiah oi~ nak masuk WC pun dah susah, nak jadi tuan rumah lagi la leceh. Banyak kontroversi. Kalo asyik wat kat Asia, kang Afrika lak boikot. Bila wat kat Afrika, si Asia ni lak yang boikot. Haish~ politik...politik. So untuk memuaskan hati semua pihak, si Fifa ni cakap WC akan dibuat ikut rotation. Setiap zon akan dapat. Tahun ni Africa dah buat, kena tunggu lagi 5 kali WC baru la Africa dapat lagi. Malaysia? Wallahualam.

Itu la serba sedikit pengenalan pasal WC. Kalau nak tahu lebih lanjut, gi la cari kat wikipedia.
*pemalas tol*

Last but not least, mari kita layan lagu tema WC tahun ni. Aku cari siap ngan lirik punya sekali. yeah~!!

minggu lepas kebosanan sampai takde mood nak update blog. minggu ni banyak lak aktiviti nak kena squeeze dalam 3 hari.


xpe la. mari mulakan cerita.

Jumaat - 28 Mei 2010 (Cuti Wesak)
sudah plan bersama kazen bernama Laksa untuk pergi menyaksikan kazen bernama Apis menyertai Battle of The Band 3 (BOB3) sempena Youth Festival di PWTC. Apabila menelefon beliau untuk pengesahan kehadiran pada jam 3 petang, beliau menyatakan perlu bekerja double shift pula. tongtaishiang punya kazen. *jangan tanya apa maksud tu*

nota kaki buat kazen bernama Laksa:
ya. lu adalah belia berwawasan yang membantu membangunkan ekonomi negara. tapi...
ada wa kisah??
wa touching ngan lu seumur hidop r camnih...

ok fine. beliau tak dapat pergi. memandang youth fest ni kena register untuk free pass (kalau tak kena bayar RM5 per entry), maka tiada kebarangkalian untuk mengajak orang lain last minit. bersendirian lagi. *xpe, aLee ialah super duper woman*

sudah tiba dan claim pass di kaunter, terus mencari jalan yang benar ke BOB3. dalam perjalanan ke stage, terjumpa beberapa muka familiar. antaranya:

dan beberapa orang yang tidak kesempatan untuk diambil gambarnya. nak sebut nama pun x ingat. *jangan marah naaa uolls heee~*

telah berjumpa stage. crowd of course tak kurang ramainya...

....dan mencari manusia di celahan manusia yang bernama Apis sehingga jumpa.

sementara menunggu giliran Apis, layan la band yang tengah perform. cara gak la diorang2 nih. ada dua tiga band yang aku ingat sampai hari ni. *macam dah lama beno lak event nih*

band ini nyanyi lagu old school rock - Ghostbuster. Layan giler~!! tak perlu suruh pun, crowd da nyanyi sama2 part ghostbuster tuh. membuatkan aku terasa mahu cari dan donlod lagu itu.

yang ni lak lagi layan. diorang bawak lagu Yellowcard "Only One". Siap main cello tuuuuuh wpun drummer takde. kaki terseliuh main futsal. aku bila tengok memang cair terus r. aku tak bley tengok laki main piano, violin, cello n gitar beb~ konfem terus jatuh hati ha3.

Terbayangkan Jay Chow buah hatiku. *hati berbunga2*

ehem2..berbalik kepada topik asal. next band ni pun layan gak.

ala2 Yuna sket. Ahli band berasal dari Sabah, Sarawak n Selangor. SSS. nice~ suka imej yang diorang ni bawak.

masa layan band2 ni semua, aku memoriza nama band diorang sebab nak masukkan dalam blog. tapi bila dah balik rumah terlupa lak. haish~ *amelya, lain kali sila catatkan ye*

Banyak je band yang masuk BOB3 nih, tapi tak sempat nak melayan semua sebab kesuntukan masa. Makanya, aku meninggalkan BOB3 dan masuk balik main hall. Banyak benda unik aku jumpa kat youth fest nih.

tarot card reading
sangat mahu mencuba tapi tak tercuba lak. *bley ke nak baca2 tarot nih?*

semua mende kecik jadi besar kat youth fest nih. cermin mata, jenga, chess set~ semua saiz XXXXXL. Membuat aku teringat pada seseorang ahaks~

ni aku rasa paling best. Bila aku masuk hall Maybank, aku tengok semua orang tengah duduk bersila atas lantai. Aku ingatkan ada seseorang yang sangat best sedang berucap atas pentas, rupa2nya Hot fm punya mini konsert . *dalam pic Azlan and The Typewriter tengah wat soundcheck* Terkesima seketika. Kepelikan melanda. Mengapakah semua orang duduk? Malas nak bertanya banyak, aku pun join je la. Serius, ni pertama kali dalam seumur hidup aku jumpa crowd yang sangat berbudi bahasa ha3. Kalau time Inul nak buat konsert kat Malaysia semua orang duduk macam nih, nescaya aman damai stadium Bukit Jalil tuh.

masa kat PWTC tu, macam2 borang aku isi, macam2 sampel makanan aku cuba, macam2 ragam orang aku jumpa, macam2 gambar aku amik. seronok.

Kalau ikutkan hati nak pergi lagi pada Sabtu n Ahad, tapi memandangkan sudah memberi janji kepada ayahanda untuk pergi PD pada hari tersebut, haish~ terpaksa akur. Pass percuma tuh diberikan sahaja kepada mereka yang layak.

sabtu & ahad (29 & 30 Mei 2010)
Berada di PD pula. Sudah berjanji dengan ayah untuk menjadi cameragirl sepanjang Majlis Reunion SSC 36 beliau.

Sebelum aku bertolak, tetiba teringatkan semua apps aku kat fB. OMG~! Makanan2 kat Cafe; Zakumi, Ally n Simba nak kena kasi makan; ikan2ku dalam akuarium; kilang2 aku yang akan siap production dalam 18 jam lagi. Aiyoyo~ bagaimanakah?!!

Tetiba baru aku perasan yang aku tak pernah hidup tanpa internet lebih dari 24 jam. Kalau pergi PD, kena tido satu malam kat sana. Itu dah memang2 lebih dari 24 jam~!! Cane aku nak survive nih??

*ok fine. bertenang Amelya. takkan kat sana takde wifi kan? bawak je laptop. Kot2 ada.*

Aku pun dengan penuh konfidennya mem-packing sekali laptop aku. Lagipun kalau memory card penuh nak kena transfer gambar gak. Tak rugi pun kalau bawak.

Sampai je kat sana, aku terus check wifi. ADA~!! Hati girang gumbira yang tak terkata. Misi aku bila check in ialah terus membuka laptop. Tapi, langit tak selalu cerah kan, ada je halangan yang nak datang. haish~ bilik belum siap lagi, kata orang2 di kaunter. Kena tunggu sampai pukul 2. Time tu baru pukul 11 lebey2. Wakluuuuuuuuuu~ lamanya. Ok fine. Memandang mak aku pun dah lapar, ayah aku pun ajak makan kat coffee house sambil menunggu.

lepas order, nak tunggu makanan nak sampai tak macam lama lak kan.

mak ayah aku dah kelaparan nih.
*aku faham dah sekarang dari mana asal usul kesengalan aku*

Lepas perut dah kenyang n kunci bilik pun dah dapat, aku pun terus membuka laptop bila sampai di bilik. Wifi ada, bagus. TAPI ada charge la pulak. RM9 per hour. mana ada orang guna interent sejam dua je sekarang nih. Cesssss....bijak sungguh mereka ini membuat bisnes. Ok fine. Aku pun meng-hangkut laptop aku pergi ke lobby. Cari port yang best dan terus duduk. Buka laptop. Wireless connected, bagus. Klik firefox homepage google keluar, bagus. Klik fB pun boleh jugak, super duper bagus. Banzai~ telah berjaya!!!! terasa nak menari kipas macam audible kat ym tuh.

Tapi, aku dah agak dah. Langit memang takkan selalu cerah. Encik hujan mesti nak nyebok gak. Haish~ fB memang boleh buka, tapi setakat homepage je la. Apps langsung tak boleh buka. Keluar menatang "Not Found: The requested URL was not found on this server." Apakah~?? Server dia block apps fB ka? Ramai sangat orang guna fB ke kat lobby ni sampai server jam? sebab tu ke apps fB di-block?? di manakah kebebasan berinternet?!! tongtaishiang punye server. *Ok fine. Bertenang Amelya. Cuba klik sampai dapat.* Memang hampeh la. Time ni terasa nak c***t tahap gaban la. So, aku pun give up la untuk membuka fB sama sekali. apa gunanya fB tanpa apps?? umpama minum teh yang tak bergula.

Makanya, kesimpulan di sini ialah aku masih lagi di zaman batu. Terpaksalah pasrah.

Makanya, sumber hiburan aku di PD ialah fotosop semata2. Kalau tak turun ke event untuk amik gambar, aku dok kat bilik je ber-fotosop sampai lebam. Haish~

Sepulangnya aku ke rumah, first thing yang aku capai ialah laptop aku.
*perlu ke beritahu lagi? adoiyaii~*

Bila buka je fB, ada 88 notifications. Gileeerrr r, baru 1 hari kena tinggal, dan ya, makanan sudah basi kesemuanya. Akuarium penuh dengan lumut. Nasib baik takde ikan yang mati kelaparan. Zakumi sudah busuk dan perlu dimandikan. Ally dan Simba kelaparan. Nasib baik hasil kilang tak expired lagi. Fuuh~

ni baru sekali, akan datang mesti ada lagi. Kalau tetiba aku kena pergi ke ceruk Malaysia yang memang takde internet langsung, aku kena bersedia. Lepas ni aku rasa aku kena buat strategi perancangan fB sebelum travel ke mana2.
Kegilaan fB telah mempengaruhi hidup aku ha3.

So, aku terfikir. bila aku backpacking bersama cik eskrim pusing2 1 msia, bagaimanakah dengan fB-ku? ahaks~
