Thoughts are Things - so choose your fate.

 "Khairy wants muslim protest against Sam Bacile. 
For islam or for his political gains? 
Are muslims wasting too much time and energy on this?"
~Ngeh Koo Ham

So Ngeh has apparently been insensitive to Muslim sentiments .....

The way I look at it- He only questioned the need for such a ruckus over some "non-movie" by some individual in some god-forsaken place in the US of A (which I bet 90% of them never even saw).
I'm no fan of this Ngeh fella - but for the life of me, I really don't see what was so insulting in the above tweet, which was a query .... 
Frankly, I too have wondered the same quite often (on previous "events"). 
The sad part is- none of his Muslim friends/ allies had enough gumption in them, to come to his defense for the rational, simple and legitimate query ....

But of course Malaysians cannot be left out of the action front....
Very "healthy competition" between PAS & UMNO political opportunists we see here- which is now paraded in the media as "United" in "defending Islam" (from some insignificant guy, on the other side of the world!!!) 
So now after walking the streets carrying Perkasa/PAS/ UMNO/ Hezbollah flags and telling "America" to "go to hell" (and burning what's apparently the hybrid flag of USA/Israel too- and God knows why)
- maybe they believe they have redeemed themselves.

Yes- I feel for them .... but, errr ...  never mind.

I just wonder if they proved their critics right.

Anyways, here's something to think about:-

Thoughts are Things
---Henry Van Dyke

I hold it true that thoughts are things;
They're endowed with bodies and breath and wings;

And that we send them forth to fill

The world with good results, or ill.

That which we call our secret thought

Speeds forth to earth's remotest spot,

Leaving its blessings or its woes

Like tracks behind it as it goes.

We build our future thought by thought,

For good or ill, yet know it not.

Yet, so the universe was wrought.

Thought is another name for fate;
Choose, then, thy destiny and wait,

For love brings love and hate brings hate.
