OF coca cola, bigmac, and KOPI RADIX -- PART I

A few weeks ago, i was reading this article on what israeli products i should boycott when suddenly, i overheard a conversation between a non-muslim friend and some muslim friends... it went something like this

A = why do you want to boycott all these products, how can you even live without all these...

N = huh??erm...but...thats the least you can do

A = the least you can do?the least you can do is to give the palestinians money...

N= i know...but....

A = look here, maggie mee....you eat that right

N = i can eat indomie..huhu

A= dont tell me you didnt just go and watch the latest bedtime stories,thats in the things you are supposed to boycott..and kfc...and mcd...and coke...and .....

N = erm...(i think i can hear someone calling me)

A = one person not boycotting or boycotting wont make a difference u know!

A = and why is there a fuss between the palestinians and the jews? if you look back in history, that land belonged to the jews anyway

N = (blank) ---blink2...

Well, as you can guess, character N is me...huhu...and i was caught by surprised. At that time, i realised, what do i really think about boycottting american-jew products and did i even have a clue of what is happening in palestine? looks like i dont. because if i did, i could have answered all those questions in a blink of an eye, and here we are boasting as muslims...shame on me, shame on us~

(taking a deep breath...so,here goes, my friends..)

Personally, what i am doing now is im trying to CUT DOWN on what i use that may contribute to the MURDERs in Palestine. I still go to the movies(warner bros and all is obviously a very jewish company), i still drink a weekly dose of coca-cola,and i would really like to get my hands on some BIGMAC RIGHT NOW... but i try to downsize to some extent. Get what i mean? I am just one person in this world, can i make a difference? YES.. why? you never know, maybe.....

--> nadya NO bigmac --> BULLET not MADE --> ONE bullet NOT THERE

--> bullet NO SHOOT innocent child --> nadya SAVED child? ...insyaAllah....

Dr Mahathir wrote in his blog, that he too agreed on the boycott issue. But to some extent. Eventhough those are products made by those people, but the people who work in the factories, the restaurants, the shops...they are OUR people. We might eventually have dented our own economy. The solution is, that the same company could manufacture other products that are not contributing to the economy in Israel. Another solution,written by someone else is that the companies like starbucks in malaysia could donate to palestine themselves. (i wonder is that possible).

Anyway, the story goes, that even if every single Malaysian did not buy an american product which contributed their money to Israel, it would not even dent the economy in the U.S. But, what it would do, is to show how much we hate what they are doing, it shows how much we care and oppose the MASSACRE IN PALESTINE...

one more thing, do you know why we become materialistic... you see...now, we love it when we show of our new CALVIN KLEIN watch dont we.....we love it when we flaunt in the new sexy DKNY summer dress..but do you/we(choose one) know that those are american companies that would donate their income to the zionist cause in no time? to answer why we become more materialistic, is...that the jews are smart....they create these companies, advertise them as great as hell and make everyone want to buy them as soon as they are showcased in the mall. These things are not cheap, mind you...and sometimes, they are awesome (seriously!),sometimes, they just print a white t-shirt and put a small smiley face at the back and charge you RM 258...huh, talk about materialistic...

Ok,im seriously not finished yet...suddenly i have lots to say.. i had been trying to write something about the palestine-israel war for nearly a month now. i even asked a friend to help,which he couldnt because he was tooooo busy, i even asked some friends to read what i wrote before i put it in cyberspace(which got a -mcm poyo comment by them). so,this is the first of hopefully(huhu) others to come to show my support to my fellow brothers and sisters in palestine....

So, to you, and to you, and you.....I got some interesting things here that i think would help you and me and others understand the predicament on whether or not boycotting Israel can, should or would be done... wait ahhh
