Bloggers Buff 2008


Months ago, I happened to have my internship somewhere in KL, nearby KLCC. This opportunity not only helped me learn more about my field of study, Communications Engineering, but also pushed me to become a very loyal fan to the Sun newspaper, a brief Malaysian daily paper that tackles Malaysian politics neutrally. The Sun was available in the building I worked at.

Anyway, developing a new habit of reading the Sun almost everyday, even though it’s not easy to find it in my campus, rewarded me the chance to read about Bloggers Buff 2008 – I’m good at reading small-size ads!- The program won my attention and I further checked it's ads online. After viewing the ad on the net I emailed the organizers and I'm going to join it insha'allah.

Bloggers Buff 2008 is going to be held in Putra World Trade Center (PWTC) next SATURDAY 22nd November 2008… It’s going to be my first experience to meet people as a blogger, the idea sounds interesting.. the program tentative seems interesting as well… It’s good enough to know that Tun Mahathir himself is officiating the program :-P

What makes this program very appealing to me is that Bloggers Buff 2008 is open for experienced as well as new bloggers. the ad said malaysian bloggers –only-, this is what I thought at first. But, after contacting the organizers I was informed that foreigners can join too, at least me, hehe..

the program tentative is shown below...

Thank You “the Sun”!

Save Palestinian Women!


Woman rights have been jeopardized in the past. A sad, but real, example is the debate that has taken place in middle-ages Europe, a debate in which women were not seen by many western philosophers, then, as humans!

As time passes on, women still suffer some massive discrimination! Almost everywhere in the world! BUT, NOT in Israel!! Because, for an Israeli soldier, a Palestinian woman is equally targeted as Palestinian men. They both should be murdered – some Zionist Rabbis believe- no discrimination exists!

Tracing the modern history of occupied Palestine, one can clearly see that the Palestinian woman not only has been a mother or a wife of a martyr or an internee, but also a martyr or an internee herself.

Probably, the first thing that comes to our minds when talking about the agony of Palestinian women are the dozens of martyrs and injured innocents. For instance, hundreds of innocent women were murdered by the Zionist war machine in the late years of the Palestinian uprising (Intifada). Thousands of them were wounded in the same period.

Although our women have been suffering, their struggle can never reach an end soon! this is true because, International Woman Rights Movements throughout the world do not seem to play their role in this struggle.

In fact, it's as simple as this; in order for this struggle to stay alive, substantial International and Islamic Support should see light and reach Palestinian women!

Hopefully one day soon, Western Human and Women Rights Organizations will walk their talk!
