PALESTINE RELIEF FUND

Elviza of the blog Write Away has appealed to every blogger she knows to blog about the appeal for Palestine Relief Fund. This way more people will be aware of the atocities of the Israelis against the the helpless Palestinians under the pretext of flushing out the HAMAS fighters amidst the innocent people of Palestine. In the process, many innocent people were killed or maimed.
Those who died leave behind grieving loved ones without much of a future. Those injured and maimed need to be taken care of. Without proper food to eat, water to drink and house to shelter themselves, massive funds are required to help them with the basic necessities of life especially medical necessities.
Today at every mosques in Malaysia, donations will be collected for this fund. Please give generously. Any amount will do.
Read the following appeal and you can find out how the fund will be used by Mercy Malaysia and other ways you can donate if you are not donating at the mosques.

Personally I often wonder at the folly of Hamas taking potshots at Israel with their rockects which often resulted in retaliation of massive proportion from Israel. The damage from such retaliation in the form of lives, property and future doesn't seem to be worth the effort from Hamas in the first place. Is it their desire to die a martyr that is driving them to take potshots at Israel? Why not wait while Hamas muster their strength in terms of numbers and artilery before making an attack on powerful Israel backed by USA? When you strike the blow must be so telling that your enemy will not be able to wake up and fight back. As it is, Israel may over run Palestine and even claim ownership of Gaza. With the back up of USA and The UN being toothless, I think that is what is on their mind right now, another territorial expansion.

Mercy Malaysia appeals to generous Malaysians to send it cash donations. Contributions will support Mercy Malaysia to procure emergency surgical kits, medicines and hospital equipments to help the hospitals in Gaza.
Cheque is to be made payable to “MERCY MALAYSIA” and addressed to Mercy Malaysia, Level 2, Podium Block, City Point, Kompleks Dayabumi, Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin, 50050 Kuala Lumpur.
Cash donations can be made via on-line transmission or deposit at CIMB Bank Account No: 1424-000-6561053.
Donation form can be downloaded from here.
Further enquiries are to be directed to +603-22733999 or info@mercy.org.my

Salam Pak Zawi.

When one is given the opportunity to give some form of help and participate in act of kindness, it is an immense blessing.

The blessings received by the giver may not so easily be perceived . In fact the giver may view the charitable act insignificant like dew drops, but for the beneficiary, the dew drops that trickle down their way are magnified like merciful rain.

..ingatan buat diriku yang selalu lupa!

Zawi said...

Sherry,
Beautiful words from you. I will not mar those words with my comments.

Zawi,
Here we go again.Yahudi tukang bunuh dan buat the massive injury and destruction,then the good samaritans from all over the world join in to help the injured.
Why cant we take a preventive measure instead?Impossible kan?
I believe the Relief Fund must be opened forever for Israel will never stop murdering the innocent Palestinians.

Zawi said...

Mamasita,
How true with your observation. The way things are going their relief fund will be perpetual.
My argument is why create the opportunity for them to retaliate and kill by letting Hamas take potshots at them? The way Hamas is going about it is just killing civilians too.

I agree with your take on the role of Hamas. I will post an article about the Palestinian issue at my blog soon. A bit busy doing other things this week.

Salam Zawi,
It is sad that the Palestinians have to suffer in the hand of barbaric Israel and its master USA. I believed without the Palestinians issue Israel will cause more misery to the world community, they have been kept at their border by the Hamas.

The international community, especially Muslims must stand up against these real terrorists of the world.

Zawi said...

ZR,
Would love to read your take on the role of Hamas as it will be from a different refreshing perspective. Do it bro.

Zawi said...

Dato' Jaff,
The good news is many Americans are now aware of their government's involvement in the Israel's atrocities towards Palestinians. World peace can be achieved if USA can stop supporting the real terrorist called Israel. Israel's own aggression is giving birth to many suicide bombers who have nothing to live for anymore.
The Americans themselves must stand up to their government whose spending to support the wars all over the world is costing them trillions of dollars. The costs of the war in Iraq is being tracked in real time at this site here:

Sekadar mengingatkan. Amalkan doa ini.

Dari Surah Al-Baqarah ayat 286, bermaksud;

"Ya Tuhan kami, janganlah Engkau hukum kami jika kami lupa atau kami melakukan kesalahan. Ya Tuhan kami, janganlah Engkau babani kami dengan beban yang berat sebagaimana Engkau bebankan kepada orang-orang sebelum kami. Ya Tuhan kami, janganlah Engkau pikulkan kepada kami apa yang tidak sanggup kami memikulnya. Maafkanlah kami, ampunilah kami, dan rahmatilah kami. Engkaulah Pelindung kami, maka tolonglah kami menghadapi orang-orang kafir".
