Tembak Aja – Just Shoot

04-10-2005 13:02

The recent bombings in Bali have once again highlighted the inappropriate (disastrous) approach of the ‘us and them’ mentality. There is ‘no love lost’ in divisionism. The Australian Senate, take note! Western analysts fail to understand that Muslims take personally another Muslim’s plight. Race or nationality has little relevance in the context of the unifying familial aspects of Islam. Kill a Palestinian and Muslims in Indonesia, Sudan (everywhere) will feel the loss. Furthermore, many would feel obliged to take positive action to prevent the further loss of Muslim life. However, Muslim fanatics fail to understand a principal tenet of Islam, the brotherhood of all humanity; taking innocent life is strictly forbidden. But we take the simplistic view of the fanatics and Western politicians, the question should be, who benefits from these bombings?

Unlike signing on the dole refugees are regularly detained at Communications House, put in holding cells then deported. Imagine having to report to a building every week not knowing if your about to be returned to the country where you have been tortured? Very humane...

Today's demo was called to draw attention to what is happening inside the building. More to follow.
