Indonesia Aneh

Hanya terjadi di Indonesia, yang terlibat Kasus Bail Out Bank Century adalah Gubnernur BI Boediono (Pemerintahan SBY 1), tetapi yang mau di ancam dilengserkan adalah Wapres Boediono (Pemerintahan SBY 2).

Hanya terjadi di Indonesia, dalam system parlementer Pemilunya diikuti oleh peserta perseorangan dan ormas. Pemilu 1955 diikuti 172 kontestan terdiri dari sekian puluh partai, sekian puluh perorangan, sekian puluh organisasi non partai. Ini terjadi jaman Bung Karno.

Hanya terjadi di Indonesia, dalam system parlementer, partai yang bukan penguasa yaitu PDI dan PPP, tidak menjadi Partai Oposisi. Mereka hanya menjadi pelengkap seolah-olah demokrasi.  Ini terjadi jaman Orbanya Pak Harto.

Hanya terjadi di Indonesia, Presiden BJ Habibie tidak diterima laporan pertnggung jawabannya oleh Partainya sendiri, yaitu Golkar.

Hanya terjadi di Indonesia, dalam system parlementer Gusdur, berhasil menjadi Presiden RI dari Partai yang kecil, PKB,  bukan partai pemenang pemilu!.

Hanya terjadi di Indonesia, dalam system Presidential, dibentuk partai koalisi dan terbentuk partai  oposisi. Ini sedang terjadi saat ini, era SBY.

Hanya terjadi di Indonesia, Aburizal Bakri mengatakan;”Pengabdian kepada Golkar adalah Pengabdian kepada Rakyat”, demikian pernyataan yang aneh, dan di amini oleh tokoh-tokoh Golkar. Padahal dalam system presidential rakyat tidak memilih Partai Politik.

Hanya terjadi di Indonesia, SBY melakukan Pertemuan, baru-varu ini, di Cikeas adalah koordinasi rutin antara SBY dengan anggota Fraksi PD DPR. Pertemuan membahas tugas, fungsi, pokok anggota PD yang ada di legislatif,” jelas Andi Nurpati, Ketua Bidang Komunikasi Publik DPP PD. Dalam system Presidential, rakyat memilih orang perorang, tidak ada lagi kaiatnnya dengan Parai politik, ketika seseorang telah menjadi anggota legsilatif.

Hanya terjadi di Indonesia, dalam system Presidential, dimana rakyat memilih orang perorang, tetapi di DPR ada perwakilan Partai Politik, fraksi-fraksi. Siapa yang memilih Parpol ya?

Hanya apalagi yg terjadi di negeri ini?

Fighting For God

I can not write down “Gods”, otherwise will againts the belief of most of the people in this world.  Years ago I read the news in Malaysia that there were some Churches were burned down by Islamic or fundamentalist group because they (Christian) called “Allah” to their God, I said; “ Oh my God”, what ‘s wrong? God, a holly name of the supreme creator, is well known by every civilisation but the names of vary depending on the place and feeling of the local people.

My Frien who is a Javanese, called Him Gusti Allah. While  Balinese who are Hindu, called Him “ Sangyang Widiwase or Dewata”, Timorese called Maromak. Anyway a Sundanese like myself called “Gusti anu murbeng Alam”. Moses, Isa and Muhammad, who are well known called Prophets, introduced in their holly books such as Torah, Injil (the Bibble) and Qur”an for the same God as Elloi, Elloh or Allah.

Aramaic, the Semitic language, old language of the middle east, is used to describe a variety of languages spread over a vast area, today from Egypt to Iraq, and Turkey in the north. The Aramaic language was spoken as a means of communication for official business, diplomacy and as divine language by Assirians, Babylonians, Persians, Chaldeans, Jews and Syrians, and by all people in the middle east in ancient times.

Arabic, a Semitic language, and Hebrew, also a semitic language, are closed to Aramaic. Those three closely related expressed the subconsious feeling of the need a supreme power in ythe same way. Jews said “Elloi” or “Elloh”, that’s some time later changed to become “Ellohim” or “Yahwe” to as name of God. The Arab used “Allah” as the holy name of God. which was written down in the Qur’an. So the three peoples with similar languages expressed the same for the name of God. (Quoted from Sulityo Pujo- The Jakarta Post,1/25/2010).

How do we call to people who destroy Churches, Mosques or Synagogues or maybe other holy places as believer? The true believers should respect to other holly places as Muhammad even offer his mosques to Jewish People on their Journey to perform their prayers. Shalahudin Al Ayyubi ordered his followers to respect Churches and let them free because they were People of the Book (Ahli Kitab).

By the way, sometimes I contemplate that I have to change my thought on God as it lies in my mind as mostly people aslo think as they are now exist. Look at my friend who shared with me “that the existence of God because of us, without us there will be no God”.
