"Three members of a body that no one has ever elected should not be able to overturn the votes of millions of Londoners," the mayor said.
Freedom of speech huh? Only if you insults, attack, mock the Muslims!

I've lost my words..u read here and see for yourself, just here click click
At least now I can see that they're taking this matter seriously. Alhamdulillah..I hope they'll act accordingly without bias...
Hok ni aku amik kat web PPIM, klik kat tajuk atas tu untuk ke galeri PPIM... dan klik pada gambar untuk gambar yang lebih besar dan jelas..
Macam manalahhh solat kita selama bertahun tahun lama dahulu...Bacaan Al-Qur'an kita, selawat kita...zikrullah kita...
Aku teringat seorang al-Ustaz masa aku bergelar student dulu mencemuh mereka yang masih menggunakan Kayu Sugi untuk memberus gigi mereka, katanya "apa dok pakai kayu tu lagi...sekarang ni macam macam dah ada dah..yang Darkie pun dah jadi Darlie dah..." lebih kurang macam tu aku ingat kata-katanya...walaupun aku ni pelupa, tapi kata katanya yang menghiris hati tu masih aku ingat...
Bukanlah aku menggunakan kayu sugi tu pun masa tu, tapi RESPEK lah pada mereka yang mengamalkannya atas dasar SUNNAH Nabi s.a.w.
Nah sekarang nih, peristiwa tu dah berlalu hampir 20 tahun yang lalu, tetapi natijah dan pengajarannya ditunjukkan sekarang ini..Mungkin juga itu kekuatan yang diberikan kepada mereka yang dipilih olehNya dan mereka terselamat daripada terkena perkara-perkara yang haram tersebut.
Memanglah dari segi hukum Feqah, kita dimaafkan sebab tak tahu, tapi dari segi batinnya pasti memberi kesan.. Wallahu'alam.
NST 'retaliate' here click click , read on and see how arrogant this guy is...
He even re-published the cartoon..What make him so Bold? Somebody's behind him? The Government got share in NST....they keep silent when it come to $$$$....??? Na'uzubillah..
I don't read or buy NST anymore..the least I can do O Allah... :(
Then what is the manifestation of your 'quick' action on Sarawak Tribune and Guang Ming? Just to win votes????
Sesungguhnya Allah berselawat ke atas NabiNya..Wahai orang orang yang beriman, berselawatlah kamu ke atas Nabi mu, dengan ucapan salam selawat yang sempurna... ya rasulullah....
She claimed that she was forced to unveil her head scarf or resign if she want to retain her position there, as a result, she resigned. She had been working there quite some time and all those years she had to take off her tudung when arrived at the hotel. She started to call it enough is enough after returning from her Haj pilgrimage to Makkah recently.
I just don't know how long that we can stand of such insults and discrimination towards our own failth in this world, be it locally nor abroad. We are now indeed being attack continously by Kafirun as well as Munafiqun! Now that we are still holding the executive power of this country and yet things like this still happens in this beloved country..Imagine if this country is govern by Kafirun! Na'uzubillah!
I can still remember a similar case happened in Perak few years back, a Muslimah had to resign her job when she refused to take off her Purdah to work. She challenged her ex-employer in court..She lost the case.
Another, 3 siblings at a primary school was suspended from school because they wear turban to school... Not to mention the cries of our sisters from Indonesia working as maids here, being abused by their non muslims employers to eat pork, bathing their dogs, restraint them from performing the daily prayers....bla bla bla..(there are good employers too). Can't just the government step in here? Can't they just warn the Hotel management (foreigner) to respect Islam as our country's official religion? Can't they just made rules and regulations that muslimah maid cannot work with non muslims employer ? Or may be rules to protect the dignity of our sisters that working with them? Is it that hard?
How long can we stand such provocations!?...How many more incidence that they want to test us!???
Pemuda PAS, NGOs like PPIM and other had lodged police report on this matter. Lets see how is this going to be handled by the government. The newspaper belongs to them, Islam Hadhari team... Sarawak Tribune was suspended (finally was closed on their own will) and Guang Ming (Chinese Press) was also suspended...and Now...The New Straits Times, their own newspaper!
I tried to check on our online national dailies including Harian Metro but i couldn't find any column reporting this issue.. are they now turned Mute?
What should we do now? It's a shame to us since we have been complaining to the Danish embassy thru emails saying this and that and suddenly, Our OWN local newspaper, OWNED by the government, did the same thing..only this time..a mockery of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w.
However, i found the stories here and here
Those offended by my reference to holocaust (or holohoax) should see it as an example of free speech and understand that; - nobody likes to be at the receiving end of someone else’s free speech! If you cannot tolerate being at the receiving end than do not expect others to tolerate being put in that position. Certainly, do not expect to dictate terms of reprisal to them after putting them in that position.
Some are attempting to justify the Danish cartoons by equating the political cartoons that appear in the Arab media. Political cartoons appear in all societies as form of expression of their political views related to a certain reality. They are quick to cite Arab cartoons without making any references to the Israeli cartoons or the constant anti-Islamic, anti-Arab, anti-Muslim cartoons and the massive propaganda in the western media on a far larger scale. The political cartoons exhibited by both sides, they have no relationship with the deliberate mocking of Prophet of Islam or any other Prophets. After the initial criticism of Europe by the US (which was largely a pay back for the criticism it received on the Iraq war) over this issue, they took the opportunity to have a swipe at the voiceless Muslims. Accordingly, the White House spokesperson, Scott McClellan, said:
The cartoon-gate affair in Denmark highlights more about European fears of Islam and Muslims than it does about attitudes of Muslims. The fear is shaped by the liberal fanaticism, capitalist greed, imperialism, racism, arrogance, all fused with the prejudices inherited from the dark ages. This relationship with the dark ages has certainly been demonstrated by these crass cartoons, that has no scholarly or intellectual foundation (by definition).
PARA PERSATUAN SUKARELA DAN PARA PEJUANG KEADILAN yang prihatin dengan perjuangan kemanusian dan keadilan sejagat agar tidak lagi membeli UBAT GIGI COLGATE sehingga COLGATE belajar menghormati pengguna.
Kita renung antara fakta-fakta berikut:-
COLGATE adalah sebuah syarikat yang TIDAK PRIHATIN kepada sensitiviti umat Islam.
Sejak bertapak di Malaysia lebih 40 tahun lalu, ia tidak pernah mendapatkan atau berusaha untuk memperolehi sijil Halal JAKIM bagi menjaga hati para pengguna Islam atau menyatakan yang produk mereka HALAL; Tanpa sijil halal ini sejak begitu lama dan tanpa sebarang tanda Halal di kotak ubat gigi tersebut, wajar dan patutkah kita menganggap Colgate sebagai Halal sedangkan Colgate sendiripun tidak mendakwa ianya halal atau ditanda sebagai HALAL;
COLGATE begitu angkuh sehingga tidak menghiraukan pertanyaan PPIM dan orang ramai atau mengambil langkah untuk memberi sebarang keyakinan secara pro aktif kepada masyarakat Islam terhadap status halal produk mereka hingga ke hari ini; Ia dibuat di Thailand yang mana juga menyokong ekonomi Thailand yang terbukti melakukan penganiayaan kepada penduduk Selatan Thailand (PPIM telah melancarkan BOIKOT COLGATE sebagai bantahan kepada pembunuhan kejam rakyat Islam di Selatan Thailand); Puluhan atau ratusan juta telah dibelanjakan oleh syarikat ini untuk pengiklanan tetapi kenapa tidak ada peruntukan kewangan untuk menjaga hati masyarakat Islam, contohnya mendapatkan sijil halal daripada JAKIM. Kos untuk mendapatkan sijil halal kurang RM 1,000 sahaja. Bukankah ini satu penghinaan besar di sebuah Negara yang agama rasminya Islam; Sehingga kini Colgate enggan bekerjasama dengan PPIM untuk membuktikan sijil halal Thailand yang didakwanya ada serta membuktikan bahawa produk-produknya HALAL. Apa pula status produk Colgate di pasaran yang datang daripada China, Vietnam dan Amerika? Siapakah yang memberi jaminan ini? Bush...?
Janganlah kita berurusan dan menyokong syarikat yang menghina dan tidak menghormati umat Islam. Kita sokonglah produk-produk daripada syarikat yang bertanggungjawab dan prihatin terhadap keperluan masyarakat Islam setiap kali kita membeli; Kita bersatulah dalam memboikot Ubat Gigi Colgate serta menghantar isyarat jelas bahawa para pengguna Islam akan bersatu memulau produk yang tidak menghormati keperluan dan kepentingan umat Islam. BERSATU KITA SEHATI SEJIWA sebarkan nota ini kepada seramai mungkin rakan dan taulan sebagai satu perjuangan melawan keangkuhan serta menunjukkan bantahan kepada syarikat multi-nasional yang tidak menghormati serta mempermainkan para pengguna Islam sejak sekian lama. Cuba buat kali ini , kita buktikan bahawa kita pengguna juga MEMPUNYAI KEKUATAN JIKA BERSATU. Kita hantar isyarat jelas, para pengguna tidak mengira Islam atau bukan Islam tidak rela ditipu secara berterusan. Kita mahu mereka lebih prihatin dan bertanggungjawab. “ BOIKOT PRODUK HINA PENGGUNA ”
One of the cartoons showed Prophet Mohammed (SAW) wearing a turban, shaped as a bomb with a lit fuse. Stereotyping Muslims as terrorists is a classic example of the media reversing the roles; portraying the victims as terrorists and the real terrorists (state terrorists) as victims. So their media projects the rage of the victims as manifestation of intolerance and fanaticism: in contrast, the initial unprovoked attack by the aggressor is depicted as a virtue. Be it the free speech issue in Denmark to the invasion of Iraq by the US, the principle is the same, reverse the roles.
Another cartoon, placed the Prophet (SAW) at the gates of heaven shouting to suicide bombers "Stop, stop. We have run out of virgins!" We as Muslims can empathise that Danish men are deprived of virgins, as it is a rare commodity in their society, where it is a social crime and not a virtue. Perhaps this is why they run off to the Far East, to purchase the poor young men, women and children, to obviously practice their freedom upon! Think about this next time you open your mouth on women’s rights to lecture the Muslims. Real shortage of virgin has led to frustration and envy of the Islamic world, where virgins are plentiful and the norm; ‘suicide’ bombers do not need to get to paradise or run to the Far East seeking virgins.

Mmmm..sad thing to learn how my childhood ‘hero’ Hang Tuah is now being portrayed not as a warrior but rather just as a passionate lover! I even got that message above to watch the theater on Valentine Day!! Why I said my childhood hero? Is because when I was a boy, a kampong boy, I was sent to learn Malay Self Defense art – silat. My guru always tell us about this ancient heroic Malay warrior -Hang Tuah during the Sultanate era of Malacca. But to my memory, never did he mention any ‘love affair’ or any mushy mushy stories of him. At that time, I wanna be as powerful as Hang Tuah..ehehehe..(hey! he was my idol what!) Most of the stories were about his bravery, a cunning plotter at battles, loyal to his Sultan and his powerful mystical power. But again, that was then…and now..???
Now Hang Tuah is nobody but a womanizer.. In the PGL the movie was also the same. In that movie he is always seems like a sad, moody and having internal conflict within himself. I believe, most of us read Hikayat Hang Tuah, if not mistaken I’ve read that book 3 times! Is that how Hang Tuah was described in that book??
I read the advertisement on PGLtm few days back, the newspaper adds showed few snapshots of the said theater. The photos shown in the newspaper, to me, mostly were under category 18sx (so I won’t attach it here). May be not to few of us, but it is to me. In one of the photo, ‘Hang Tuah’ was seen on his kneel embracing the hip of ‘Puteri Gunung Ledang’ which is naked shoulder up. And another shot, Hang Tuah was seing kissing the PGL forehead (she was smiling).
The photo of the Majapahit Emperor, played by AC Mizal is seen with ‘tattoo’ on his shoulder! I never did know the Javanese tattooed themselves?? Any Javanese out there can clarify this to me? There’s another character at the back of the Emperor also having an even larger tattoo on his body!! (See photo) I don’t wanna describe more as I’ve never watched this theater, I don’t think I will either. So let me just commented of those photos insertion in the newspaper only.
What I know, during the era of Sultanate of Malacca, Islam is being upheld by Malaccan people. All I know, Malacca was one of the hubs of Islamic propagation in Tanah Melayu and Nusantara. With such Islamic value, and together with Malay culture, I don’t think that Hang Tuah freely to mix around with women, let alone the princess!!! Don’t you think it’s a mockery of him to portray him as what PGLtm is doing? I can still remember reading a book of this warrior Hang Tuah, the writer of the book even have a theory that this Hang Tuah was not only a warrior but he was also a ‘wali’ and that’s explain all of his mystical powers! (sorry I don’t remember the title of that book, that was a long time ago). What I’m trying to say here, Hang Tuah lived in a strict community, socializing between man and woman was not freely and restricted. He lived in the era whereby Islam was upheld accordingly and that Islamic Law was the supreme law. With that, you think he’ll act like that ‘Hang Tuah’ on stage? Mmm….
Only what I can say, getting involved in theatre/acting giving you a license to do things you cannot do in real life. it surpassed all boundaries and values and even religion. Playing a role in the theater, making it ‘it’s ok’ for one’s wife to be kissed by another man and nobody even bother not even the said ‘thousands’ of spectators watching the play to complaint – the husband of the actress..I don’t know. When you are on the stage, it is ok for you to hold the hand of someone else’s wife, because it wasn’t real! Just simply an act..
Can you imagine if that ‘Hang Tuah’ kissing that PGL forehead in real life? What would people say? But I guess, on stage, is ok for you to do it simply because “it’s wasn’t real, it was just an act!”.
O! Datuk Hang Tuah, “Tak Melayu Hilang Di Dunia” you said, but O Datuk Hang Tuah, do you know that “Hang Tuah Melayu Sudah Hilang Di Dunia ?”. Hikayat Hang Tuah
p/s: We are now still hot with the issue of blasphemy against Rasulullah s.a.w. cartoon caricature. We all stood up together to defend him. That’s good, it’s a manifestation of our love towards him. But what about his teachings?? He came here as a messenger, and as a messenger, he had already relayed us the MESSAGES!!..He left us the Al-Qur'an and Al-Hadith didnt he? If we really love him, do as he say, and leave as what he forbids us!! That's the ultimate manifestation that we truly loves him- Have you guys sent your protest email to Danish Embassy?

Remember the story of how PlayBoy magazine tried to get its clearance to publish its Pornographic Magazine in Indonesia? They tried to make it 'acceptable' by not publishing any nude photos into that Mag! Can you take it? You think they serious about it? I doubt it! Luckily the Government had turned down their request!
However, I got this cover page of that magazine of the 'Indonesian version of Playboy Magazine'. It is "THE FIRST EDITION OF INDONESIAN PLAYBOY MAGAZINE"! Well, what do you think? If you were the President Of Republic Of Indonesia, is it acceptable?Will you allow this Magazine to be sold on the street of your beloved country??...it's a joke of course!
Anyhow, I support the Indonesian government decision on not letting this kind of magazine to be sold on Muslim soil! (Are you still smiling? I do! hahahaha!)

This remark was made by him in conjunction with the termination of Utusan Melayu Mingguan last weekend (Jawi Newspaper). – Jawi is malay’s alphabets derived from Arabic Alphabets with few additional alphabets- Malay version – Jawi.
Well, I just wanna say that it is indeed true what Tun Mahathir Mohamad had said about Malay, he said “Melayu Mudah Lupa” or Malay easily forgets!!
I wonder if he forgotten who had abolished Jawi Subject out from our School Syllabus? It was them who took it out and make the Malays ‘not so well’ with Jawi (Lucky we can still read it because we learn to read Al-Qur’an which is in Arabic). How can we really ‘feel’ the importance of Jawi if we don’t even know how to read it properly? As for me, though I can read the Qur’an. But Jawi is not that easy for me to read. I do remember learning the Jawi alphabets back then in school but I just managed to learn it only a year when I was at standard 6. Then there was no more Jawi classes being taught at School.
It’s about time that Ministry of Education to reintroduce this subject to schools. It must be added as one of the syllabus to all Government School to ensure the survival of Jawi. So when more people can read Jawi, more people will buy Jawi’s written Newspaper, ie Utusan Melayu.
Alas! I do worry bout this matter!
I just surfed a blog which claimed that the blasphemy caricature against Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. was somehow being faked out by additional 3 more caricatures? (all together now is 15) It was said that Imam Ahmad Abu Ladan of Denmark made up the story, they said that he somehow found that caricature out of nowhere in the internet and then claimed it was published in the Danish Newspaper. It was also said that the Imam claimed received the additional 3 caricatures from fellow muslims but refused to expose their names (it was claimed that that 3 caricatures were also been published by the same newspaper). It was said that the Imam just did that on purpose and just to gain attention. Guess what? That blog got many comments which support it ..the word goes on.
Phew…simple logical thinking, if that so, then what in the world that in this issue of the caricature of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. the alleged Danish Newspaper never mentioned about this?? Why the hell that the Danish Embassy here, in our own country (and many other countries too) issue press statement regarding of this issue but never to address of this so call additional 3 caricatures??
Can’t they just say that “Hey! It’s a lie! We didn’t publish it!” “Our Newspaper didn’t do that!” Please show me the article with that caricatures” or may be “Give us the date of the Publication of such so that we can check it out” .. Come on man, we are talking about printing material…and that printing material is a NEWSPAPER..surely you have some sort of archive or what, finding it won’t be that hard! So why they didn’t complaint about that “lies”? Who’s lying here? Blab bla blah!
Well, to me, it's just another deviation of the real issue here. They just create 'something' and then change the real issue into another issue (which is not correct at all). Remember WTC in New York? The 11th Sept? There's a theory saying that it was the CIA who planned it just to make it as a license to invade Iraq, Afghanistan etc etc...AL-Qaeda won;t have the capabilities to do that!
Come on! Focus on the real issue! Let them play their own game!!
Say no more.. Think it for yourself!
p/s: I won’t publish the url of that blog or webpage here. Sorry, I don’t wanna spread lies.
I support to the motion by several NGOs urging the Government to impose the ‘built and sell’ policy. The developer can only start to sell their housing projects to potential buyers only when they had completed the construction of that said housing project. That includes the issuance of C.F by local authority and that the house is readily available to be occupied. This somehow will protect the buyers’ interest and secure their properties. But to date, the motion is still not accepted. I perceive that it is just to protect the developer rather than the people. “Implementing this policy will slow down our nation’s development project” , that what they said.
I still go for the ‘built and sell’ policy. It may be a disadvantage to few (short period of time as they’ll get used to it), but benefits thousand others. It will also determine that only qualified and financially secured developers are involves in this business. What happen now is that some of the developers do not have enough money to run their housing project, so they sell it first to potential buyers and use that money to finance their projects. The risk will be put onto the buyers and not to them. In case they can’t cope up with it, they just abandon their project and start anew at another sites with new housing projects, leaving behind the buyers to suffer.
I also wonder, what would our Jawatankuasa Fatwa say about this kind of ‘muamalat’ ? Have they issued any decree of such or not? If no, then when? I think they should shed some light here because it involves muslims and most of the lower income group of this country are muslims. (sad to say..but fact is fact)
Azhar, today I received a call from Affin Bank Berhad regarding of my Credit Card.. Well, actually I already gave up and intended to cancel my Affin credit card. The stories started when I moved out from Penang to Selangor to this new house. So I sent emails to Affin Bank requesting them to updates my data especially my billing address on the 17 December 2005, guess what..!? That emails were left unattended!! Then I sent another on 5th Jan 2006, still no response. I got so fed-up! At first I sent it to the complaint section of Affin bank.
Later only I found out that there is a special dedicated email address for card services that is firstname.lastname@example.org . So this time, I decided may be because of my language, then I sent them email in ENGLISH! The third email was sent on 14th Jan 2006 The same result happened, nobody returned my email or call me. The fourth email I sent on 16 Jan 2006, no reply. Last email was sent on the 18th Jan 2006, this was the last email and this time I even copied to Bank Negara Malaysia.
It was the Bank Negara Malaysia that responded to my complaints. As far as I can remember, I only sent (copy actually) only 1 email to BNM and yet they responded to my problem. The email was sent on the 25 Jan 2006. Only on 27 Jan 2006, an email was sent to me by Affin Bank saying that my complaint is under investigation, nothing to mention of my request to change of address .
I’d like to express my gratitude to Bank Negara Malaysia staff who took this matter seriously, on the 27 Jan, I received a mail from BNM signed by Siti Aishah Hashim b/p Pengarah Jabatan Pengawalan Bank.

Tuan, Pada tahun 2002 saya telah ditawarkan untuk menggunakan Kad Touch & Go dan saya telah menerimanya. Sehubungan dengan itu, pada tahun 2003, saya telah dimaklumkan bahawa saya diberikan pelepasan daripada Yuran Tahunan kad kredit tersebut iaitu berjumlah RM50 setahun. Namun begitu, bil pada hujung tahun 2003, saya telah dibilkan yuran tahunan tersebut dan saya telah membuat pengaduan berkenaan dengan hal itu kepada pihak tuan. Atas jasa baik pihak Affin Kredit Kad, bil tersebut telah ditarik balik dan amoun tersebut ditolak daripada bil saya pada bulan berikutnya. Pada tahun 2004, sekali lagi saya telah dicajkan yuran tersebut dan sekali lagi saya terpaksa menjelaskan kepada pihak tuan akan hal yang berkenaan. Setelah beberapa kali email dan panggilan dibuat, akhirnya ianya dikeluarkan daripada bil saya pada bulan yang berikutnya.",
Sekian terima kasih.

Atas jasa baik pihak Affin Kredit Kad, bil tersebut telah ditarik balik dan amoun tersebut ditolak daripada bil saya pada bulan berikutnya.
Pada tahun 2004, sekali lagi saya telah dicajkan yuran tersebut dan sekali lagi saya terpaksa menjelaskan kepada pihak tuan akan hal yang berkenaan. Setelah beberapa kali email dan panggilan dibuat, akhirnya ianya dikeluarkan daripada bil saya pada bulan yang berikutnya.
Pada tahun ini, 2005, saya sekali lagi telah dibilkan akan yuran tahunan ini. Saya tidak tahu sampai bilakah ianya akan berakhir? Adakah pihak Affin mengharapkan supaya saya terlepas pandang dan terus membuat pembayaran tersebut begitu sahaja sedangkan saya dimaklumkan pada tahun 2003 bahwa saya dikecualikan terus daripada membayar yuran tahunan itu. Adakah saya perlu membuat panggilan dan email kepada\n pihak Affin pada setiap tahun memohon ikhsan untuk tidak membuat pembayaran tahunan itu? Saya berharap supaya perkara ini diambil perhatian serius daripada pihak tuan supaya ianya tidak berulang lagi. Saya juga menggesa supaya pihak Affin mengadakan system pembayaran mudah melalui mesin supaya memudahkan pelanggan seperti saya untuk membuat pembayaran selepas waktu kerja atau waktu hujung minggu. Saya dapati agak sukar untuk membuat pembayaran kepada kad kredit saya ini dan terpaksa beratur panjang. Penggunaan mesin deposit sepertimana bank-bank lainnya memudahkan saya dan orang seperti saya berurusan membayar bil kredit kad kami. Mohon supaya keluhan dan saranan saya ini diambil perhatian untuk kebaikan bersama.. Sekian, terima kasih."

p/s: I told him, may be you should've called the bank instead of waiting for their response thru email. He just said, "I'm their customer, they should come to me and not the other way around" ...mmmmm..everything got it own price and you have to pay for it! - Jangan marah ar kawan! ;P
Yes..Back to the question, where is my kakak kakak dalam Islam (SISTERS IN ISLAM) in this issue?? What is their stand about this issue? Are they only interested in lambasting our Ulamas’ and Islamic Scholars regarding of things that they feel not incordance to Islam (actually not in accordance to them) … Where are you all O Sisters??? Don’t you feel insulted? Or is it ok because Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. is a Male Prophet..?? (To be ‘Fair’ if there were Male Prophets, there must’ve been FEMALE prophets as well – my own opinion based on SIS ‘definition’ on Fairness)
However it is, we all muslims must stand united. It’s a shame to us and a deviation to Islamic teachings and against the wish of our beloved Prophet Muhammad s.a.w for us to fell apart. He, in one of his hadith forbids us from not talking to our brothers for more than 3 days! We are obliged to follow his order!
There is a call nationwide and globally from various organizations and governments to ban Danish products. It is also include other European countries that support this blasphemy against Rasulullah. And for that, those who know what are the products to all these ‘allied’ countries please submit the list to the muslim consumer email below.
And also please observes and stop buying all of those products that are listed there at that muslim consumer website.

p/s: Yesterday I can’t blogged in here, later only to find out that blog.com had done some maintenance onto this server.
Understanding each other and respect will make this world a better place to live. The example shown by the Gaza Christian community should open our eyes wider.
