Aku dapat gambar-gambar ni dari email yang di'forward'kan oleh rakan lama. Jenuh nak ngabiskan ikan-ikan ni. Cukup untuk satu kampung makan. Di Malaysia pada tahun 50an dan 60an kita masih boleh jumpa ikan-ikan gergasi macam ni terutamanya ikan tapah.
Sekarang ini sangat sukar sebab sungai-sungai kita banyak yang dah tercemar

The Sabra and Shatila Massare
On 6 June 1982, the Israeli army invaded Lebanon in what it described as ‘retaliation’ for the attempted assassination of Israeli Ambassador Argov in London on 4 June. The invasion, soon dubbed “Operation Peace for Galilee,” progressed rapidly. By 18 June 1982, Israel had surrounded the Palestine Liberation Organisation’s (PLO) armed forces in the western part of the Lebanese capital. A cease-fire, mediated by United States Envoy Philip Habib, resulted in the PLO evacuation of Beirut on 1 September 1982.
On 11 September 1982, Israeli Defence Minister Ariel Sharon, the architect of the invasion, announced that “2,000 terrorists” had remained inside the Palestinian refugee camps around Beirut. On Wednesday 15 September, the day after the assassination of Israeli-allied Phalangist militia leader and Lebanese President-elect Bashir Gemayel, the Israeli army occupied West Beirut, “encircling and sealing” the camps of Sabra and Shatila, which were inhabited by Lebanese and Palestinian civilians. By mid-day on 15 September 1982, the refugee camps were entirely surrounded by Israeli tanks and soldiers, who installed checkpoints at strategic locations and crossroads around the camps in order to monitor the entry or exit of any person. During the late afternoon and evening of that day, the camps were shelled.
Around mid-day on Thursday 16 September 1982, a unit of approximately 150 Israeli-allied Phalangists entered the first camp. For the next 40 hours members of the Phalangist militia raped, killed, and injured a large number of unarmed civilians, mostly children, women and elderly people inside the encircled and sealed camps. The estimate of victims varies between 700 (the official Israeli figure) to 3,500. The victims and survivors of the massacres have never been deemed entitled to a formal investigation of the tragedy, since Israel’s Kahan Commission did not have a judicial mandate and was not backed up by legal force.

that befell my people, and how the occupation wanted to humiliate my homeland by putting it

And a feeling of shame haunted me like an ugly name because I was powerless.

Apa bila Pak Sukarno menciptakan terma 'Demokrasi Terpimpin' di Indonesia sekitar 50 tahun dahulu, beliau mungkin amat tahu bahawa rakyatnya yang bersikap sangat emosional dan tidak punya keupayaan untuk berfikir secara rasional kerana kebanyakkan mempunyai IQ yang berada dibawah paras normal. Itu sebab mereka memerlukan 'alpha male' untuk sentiasa memimpin dan menunjukkan jalan. Tanpa 'alpha male' mereka akan membuat perkara-perkara bodoh.
