Malaysia and USA in Free Trade ? Don't be the latest Victim

Recently I read in the news about Malaysia and USA about to make an agreement about Free Trade, and people who are unaware of the implications of this agreement, they think that Malaysia is going to prosper by trading with USA.

To be brief, I just want people to open their eyes to the reality of this ' Free Trade ' USA is spreading across the globe and what it brings to a nation.
Today, America's economy is dwindling much faster than in the past century. It has been into war with someone or the other since the end of WW II. The 'Project for new American Century' talks about how America should control the world economy and world markets as well as natural resources, mainly oil to be able to retain its super power status as well as 'rule the world', in their report which was released much before 9\11 ever happened, they mentioned about needing another 'pearl harbor' like event so that they can go ahead with their plans, and 9\11 happened right at the time they needed it ! and they got the green signal to go ahead with their invasions keeping the UN and Human Rights at bay, without much resistance from the general public who is still unaware what is actually going on ! They invaded Afghanistan for one man- Bin Ladin and did not get him nor any 'senior' leaders of 'Al Qaeda' (I doubt if this Al Qaeda even exists or is the biggest story we have been told !), they invaded Iraq for the alleged 'Weapons of Mass destruction' which were never found although people don't care because their attention was diverted to other 'spicy' stuff like Saddam and Civil war in Iraq, the people are like a toddler, u shake a toy on the right and he is distracted by that toy, u shake it on his left side and all he sees is that toy on the left with no idea what is on his right !

To be precise, America is under a big debt since a long time and the way of reducing this debt is to pass it on to other nations, and a very deceptive way of doing it, is by Free Trade agreements. In a Free Trade agreement, Malaysia's currency will no longer depend upon its economy or amount of hard work Malaysians do for their nation, rather its going to depend upon the American Dollar, if the dollar goes up the RM goes up, if the dollar comes down RM comes down. After the Free Trade, America will be able to manipulate almost everything in Malaysia, like it has been doing for Egypt and many other 'Islamic' countries. Right from elections, governments, policies, laws to the Friday Sermons given in Masjids will be dictated by America.
If Malaysian really want to prosper they should open their eyes to this big dirty trap ahead of them, this is just a dangling carrot and it is going to lead Malaysia into an utter abyss of immoral life and corrupt society. If Malaysians do not wake up to this reality and oppose Free Trade with USA, it maybe too late in the future until their nation becomes another Zombie walking behind USA in a trance. And we all know where they are heading to, and May Allah save us from following them.

Wake up Malaysians, say NO to Free Trade with the Kafir leader - USA

PS: I suggest you to read about Free Trade with USA, how the currency works in Free Trade, How Free Trade affected Egypt, and how free trade is not really best for Malaysia.

Oh, God forgive me when I whine

Salam alaikum

I want to share something nice I came across, by my favorite Nasheed singer ' Ahmed Bukhatir ' This song sung by this singer reminds you of times when you wished to have more wealth , maybe rich parents, bigger house, a better car, a great paying job, or more beautiful skin, more prettier face, more status or what ever you complained about your blessings, this song tells you something ... here are the lyrics and the video


God forgive me when I whine
By Og Mandino (adapted from original by Red Foley)

Today upon a bus I saw a lovely girl with golden hair. I envied
her - she seemed so gay - and wished I were as fair. But suddenly
she rose to leave. I saw her hobble down the isle, she had only one
leg and wore a crutch, but as she passed, a smile…

Oh, God forgive me when I whine,

I have two legs, the world is mine.

I stopped to buy some candy. The lad who sold them had such charm. I
stopped to talk to him, he seemed so glad - if I was late could do
no harm. As I left he said to me, “I thank-you, you had been so
kind. It’s nice to talk to folks like you, you see,” he said, “I am
blind.”

Oh, God forgive me when I whine,

I have two eyes, the world is mine.

Later while walking down the street, I saw a child with eyes of
blue. He stood and watched the others play, he did not know what to
do. I stopped a moment and said, “Why don’t you join the others,
dear?” He looked ahead without a word and then I knew, he couldn’t
hear.

Oh, God forgive me when I whine,

I have two ears, the world is mine.

With feet to take me where I go, with eyes to see the sun-set glow,
with ears to hear what I would know.

Oh, God forgive me when I whine,

I am blessed indeed, the world is mine!

My Favorite Movie ! Le Grand Voyage

Salam Alaikum Wa Rahmatullah

In our lives, we hold some things very dearly. Some songs, some books, some poems, some people, some places and many other things, and in my life this simple movie is very dear to me.I was suggested this movie by a very good person. Maybe that person never realized that this movie is gonna become one of my MOST favorite movies of all time.

I have been searching for this movie since a long time, with English subtitles and I waited eagerly to watch it, and today I finally watched the whole movie and words cant explain how I felt watching this movie, its simple and about a simple event in someone's life and I suggest everyone to watch this movie once, and watch it with English subtitles, because this movie is French and Arabic, although the dialogs are very less, but watch out for the emotions the unsaid words, the unsaid lessons and the power of wisdom and faith...... I am pasting a review of the movie below and also a trailer of the movie, and providing a link to the full movie on Google video, but I am sorry it does not have English subtitles. So, if you are planning to watch this, rent a DVD and enjoy it !

Le Grand Voyage (2004)
"Reda, summoned to accompany his father on a pilgrimage to Mecca and he is asked to drive his dad from France to Mecca, complies reluctantly - as he preparing for his baccalaureate examination and, even more important, has a secret love relationship. The trip across Europe in a broken-down car is also the departure of his father: upon arrival in Mecca, both Reda and his father are not the characters they were at the start of the movie. Avoiding the hackneyed theme of the return to the homeland, the film uses the departure to renew a connection between two generations.
