“Extreme actions are getting closer and closer to home” – Ustaz Nasha

“We duly take note on the fact that these extreme actions are getting closer and closer to home”, Global Movement of Moderates CEO Nasharudin Mat Isa said in a statement today condemning the gunfire and bombing attacks on Jakarta.

Ustaz Nasha added that for this reason, it is imperative “to combat extremism wherever it may be”.

Some days/weeks earlier, there was news of bomb alerts and preemptive arrests in Jakarta.

Today the suicide explosions really happened at Starbucks.

Heightened militancy leaves Christians in fear

A fortnight ago, Indonesian police had put into effect Operation Candle 2015 to secure the safety of churches during the Christmas celebration.

Nine prominent churches in Greater Jakarta were given protection under special security measures, the Jakarta Post had reported last Dec 23. The army was also put on duty.

Police installed almost 1,000 CCTVs at key locations considered to be under threat.

The churches were even combed for bombs by security personnel and sniffer dogs on Christmas eve.

Red alert in Malaysia

Meanwhile, the Inspector-General of Police has announced that Kuala Lumpur is going into highest level of alert after the Jakarta bomb blasts.

Christian UnityMalaysians should beware that the attacks are getting closer and closer to home, as the CEO of the moderates has cautioned.

Are Malaysian police going to emulate their Indonesian counterparts and implement extra precautionary steps to safeguard some highly probable targets of attacks?

It’s a matter of ‘when’ … not ‘if’.

By the way, this Jan 18-25 coming up is the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity. #pray4Jakarta, #pray4Jerusubang

  1. How could these people call themselves “Global Moderates” when they sit by idly as the Klan grows in stature, influence and he number of attacks against African Americans.

    Missouri has more Klan members in the Police Force (around 68% according to the FBI and the NAACP).

    Louisiana, Mississippi, North and South Carolina, Virginia even Philadelphia, Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Arizona, Minnesota, Indiana and Oregon all have registered large growth in membership especially from Christian congregations in these states.

    Till Hackers anonymous hacked the KKK’s websites and spilled out the names and details of members, the FBI, Homeland security and other security agencies appeared “not to know” anything about this phenomenon.

    it is now known that not since 1915 at the rebirth of the KKK (which boasts a number of former US presidents as their members) has so many of America’s youth, its trailer trash and some of its middle classes lost their direction and the experiment with multiculturalism and inter racial harmony.

    They recruit from our midst those middle classes like the G 25 who are nothing more than our version of trailer trash.

    Sad ain’t it? Imagine Ambiga, Elizabeth Wong and Theresa Kok, Hannah Yeoh and the G25 lining up in Mississippi to join them “good Ole Boys” asking “when can I get me a Nigga? “I’s just like one of you,. Can I shine your shoes masta?”

    1. Nothing to say about the attacks in Jakarta?

      Or is that an inconvenient sideshow to your agenda?

      1. MY agenda? read Helen Ang’s blog. What is the point you make? Nothing in Indonesia’s recent history can take away the polish of Chinese raping that country. The Cukongs then parking their ill gotten gains in another China town in Singapore. You will have to live with that my friend however you try to cover it up. The murderous rampage in 1998 with the downfall of Suharto it is now revealed may have been sponsored and financed by a fleeing Lim Soei Liem who appealed to the Chinese community to dig deep to fund his failing banks (because of the threats by the world bank on his family to rpay what they stole).

        When the Chinese population not connected as a “Cukong’ of Suharto as he was refused, because by and large all h did was collect protection on behalf of Suharto from them, he asked Suharto to make a lesson of their non cooperation.

        it was not till his own house was burned to the ground in Jakarta that Liem decided to flee realizing the mobs could not tell one Chinaman thief from the other. The less fortunate were sacrificed on the alter of the pigs like the ones you support.

        Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

  3. SJKC Pai Chee, Mersing sedang menternak extremis. Mula-mula bapa murid serang guru Melayu dalam bilik guru dengan membaling buku dan alat mengajar, lepas ni nak baling bom? Ciri-ciri bakal teroris dah ada bermula dengan kebencian kepada guru yang bukan sebangsa. GMM, extremis ada di sini!

  4. The point I wanted to make but failed to in my previous comment on this issue above is that it has been revealed that the National Endowment for Democratic (NED) and the civil societies movement (who fund Bersih and the opposition in Malaysia) also fund the Klan under their various other names.

    And the Klan claim to be a “Christian, American Organization catering to the welfare, education, rights and security of Americans and the rights to freedom of expression”.

    Which Americans? they do not say. What education? they do not say.

    Christians, rights and Americans appear to be the magic word in as much as “democracy and freedom of expression” appear to be the magic words for Bersih and the other NGO’s in Malaysia to have accessed the same tainted money that goes to the KKK to their own causes.

      For argument sake, Saudi and certain Sunni Arab states had been funding ISIS.

      Does that imply the 2.6 billion Arab donation that find its way into our PM’s account hailed from the same tainted source that funded the genocide of Christians, slavery and global terrorism by ISIS?

      Regardless of the source, we have been reassured by Nazri it will not compromise Malaysia’s sovereignty.

      At the end of the day, the question is simply does Nazri’s premise, better good can from from any source, command the same reflection from partisans when it is extended beyond their camp.

      1. No money is free from taint if you look at it from your narrow self serving perspective. The government of Saudi Arabia id not give the PM that money. And in any event can you prove that the money is the same as money they have given to ISIS which they deny, the US denies and ISIS denies.

        Sorry what was your question and what was your point?

  5. The Prophet (peace and blessing be upon him) said, “None of you will have faith till he wishes for his brother (in humanity) what he likes for himself.” [al-Bukhari]

    * * * * *
    “May Allah pardon His messenger. Why has he saved the profuse plunders of the Hunain battle for the new converts? Our swordblades have hardly dried from the blood of those wilful pagans whom we labored against just yesterday!” Some of the Ansaris were reacting to the Prophet’s distribution of the battle spoils in disappointment.
    [[Ansars were the early converts of Madinah who provided sanctuary to Muhammad and his followers when they fled from the terror of their Meccan persecutors]]

    The Ansari’s grievances circulated about the Muslim community until the Prophet (saw) caught ear of it. He was compelled to inquire of their leaders : “What is your view concerning what is being said about my distribution of the Hunain booty?”
    “I am a man of the Ansars, and that is my view of the situation,” answered one Sa’ad ibn Ubadah.
    “No, we see it differently. That’s the evaluation of those not broad-minded enough,“ commented some of the other leaders.
    “Alright, gather all the Ansars together; leave no one out, Sa’ad,” the Prophet (saw) instructed. When the Prophet (saw) arrived at the assembly, he gave thanks and praise to Allah, then addressed them as follows:

    “Oh my friends, you Ansari, what could possibly cause you to disapprove of my undertaking to draw new Muslims closer to the religion of Allah? Yes, I have dispensed large portions of the war booty to them while I left you with almost nothing. Oh my friends I believe strongly in the strength of your faith. Oh Ansari folks, has not Allah made the faith pleasing to your hearts? Has not Allah granted you a special distinction as the defenders of Allah and His Messenger?”

    All were silent. The men were rapt in deep reflection – despondent yet in awe of the prophetic words.

    “Why this silence? Please speak up. Remove any lingering doubts in your hearts,” the Prophet (s.a.w.) requested.

    Finally, the Ansars responded: “We rest with your wisdom, oh Messenger of Allah. You found us in darkness and guided us towards divine light. You came upon us at the fringe of hellfire and delivered us unto God’s favour. You found us in bewilderment and showed us the path to peace. We are truly thankful to Allah – the Lord Creator and Benefactor Who deserves our worship. We are grateful for Islam as our religion and Muhammad as the Messenger of Allah.” But the Prophet insisted, “Speak up, tell me what other thoughts you may have.” They answered : “What else is there for us to say, oh Messenger of Allah? We have no other reply!”

    And he s.a.w. answered:
    “By Allah! if you were to express your feelings, no one could deny you are genuine. So why not speak up? Oh Ansaris, wouldn’t it be proper for you to question me: “Didn’t you come to us as refugees, whereupon we gladly protected you? Didn’t you arrive destitute, and we gladly nurtured you? Didn’t you run to us in fear, and we sheltered you in peace? Didn’t you come as a people disregarded and disgraced [by the Meccan aristocracy], yet we cherished you? By Allah, it would be right had you questioned me in such manner and no one could deny your words.”

    Silence reigned over the assembly and it was some time before someone proclaimed : “Only Allah and His Messenger have the right to say: ‘I am the benefactor, I have assisted you’.”
    The Prophet asked them, ”Why then, oh friends have you fallen into dejection over a small portion of this transient world, a material portion with which I strengthen Muslims weak in their faith? Do you not prefer having the Messenger with you in your community while they get the sheep and the camels?”

    Thereafter, the Messenger miraculously revealed the secret disappointments of the Ansars one by one, and clarified their issues candidly and kindly. Teardrops rolled down the cheeks and beards of the upright men as the Prophet went on explaining himself. Then, one after another affirmed, “Sufficient for us is Allah as our Lord and Muhammad is the blessedness of the Lord.”

    Correspondingly, the Prophet (s.a.w.) told them : “By Allah in Whose Dominion is my life, diverse are the paths that human beings tread, but as for me I shall tread the path of the Ansars. Were I not a Muhajir (emigrant), I would surely be an Ansari (the helpers). Oh Allah! Lord of perfect attributes, bestow Your Mercy upon the Ansaris and their offspring and upon all their descendants . . . . .
