Strong title “Fuck ISA” but not my own. View picture below…

Erm, with this graffiti on the clock tower 24/7, does it mean we don’t have to be physically present at Anti-ISA vigils every Sunday? Just joking. 😀 Follow Haris Ibrahim’s blog for updates on future Anti-ISA Vigils.

As usual, PDRM came to disperse the crowd at the 18th Anti-ISA Vigil PJ held on Sunday, 8 February 2009 at MBPJ. Watch video here and read story here.

At the 19th Anti-ISA Vigil last Sunday, 15 February, I heard from vigilers that PDRM blocked the entrance to MBPJ to prevent people gathering at the tarmac. Vigilers adjourned to Lotus Restaurant for coffee and fellowship.

As reported in the mainstream media:

“An individual is not detained under the Internal Security Act (ISA) due to his ideology but because he is perceived to be a threat to national security, Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar Syed Jaafar Albar said.

He said the government invoked the ISA on those whose actions could cause chaos or undermine racial harmony, adding that the authorities would always monitor activities that might be a threat to peace and security.”

I couldn’t agree more with Syed Hamid. Really. Let us all fast and pray nationwide in our own way, as citizens and people of faith, for God Almighty’s Divine Intervention for this great nation and all Anak Bangsa Malaysia against the “United Malaysian National Oppressors”, the REAL THREAT to national security.

Some quotes by Dr. Martin Luther King Jr…

”We know through painful experience that freedom is never voluntarily given by the oppressor; it must be demanded by the oppressed.”

”The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy.”

”We must accept finite disappointment, but must never lose infinite hope.”

”True peace is not merely the absence of tension; it is the presence of justice.”

A Prayer for Our Nation

Let us proclaim the name of the Lord;
And ascribe greatness to our God!

Lord your work is perfect.
And all Your ways are just.
Let Your voice be heard today by all the nations!

O God, Judge of the nations,
Put fear into our hearts
So that we may know that we are only human.

Father, the whole of creations groans and labours
to be delivered from the bondage of corruption,
into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

Lord Jesus, send forth Your Spirit of Truth
and let this Spirit prove to ‘the powers that be’
how wrong they are about sin,
righteousness and judgement.

O Lord, declare the power of Your works
to Your peoples and let us be filled with
the knowledge of Your glory
as the waters cover the sea.

Grant us O Lord in Your Name
and may all worship the One True God.

(A prayer composed from various Scripture verses of the Bible, published in the Herald, The Catholic Weekly)

Everyone, from all religions, feel free to share your Holy Scriptures and prayers here. Lets use this space will help us grow together as fellow citizens and as people of faith – to build bridges instead of walls, to build a better world starting with ourselves.

We are all One.
When one is harmed, all are harmed. When one is helped, all are healed. – Anon

We are all One.
Ours is not a better way. Ours is merely another way. – Neale Donald Walsch.


Saya Anak Bangsa Malaysia!
