Tun Dr. M & Srebrenica..

Sekali lagi saya teringin nak kongsi kat blog ni petikan menarik daripada mantan PM, Tun Dr. Mahathir_Mohamad. Bukan, bukan tentang isu AP yang sedang kecoh tak sudah-sudah ni. Tapi tulisan beliau dalam foreword buku 'Story of Srebrenica' oleh Isnam Taljic. Secara ringkasnya, 'Story of Srebrenica' ialah sebuah novel yang mengisahkan tentang pembunuhan beramai-ramai kaum Bosniaks (Muslim Bosnia) oleh rejim Serbia pada awal dekad 90-an dahulu. Saya masih tak sampai suku lagi baca buku ni, maka tak boleh nak bercerita panjang.
Sebahagian daripada petikan tulisan Tun Dr M.;

"Srebrenica, the name of a town that I can hardly pronounce, is now etched deeply into my heart. We all remember 9/11, the eleventh of September 2001, because on that day two aircrafts crashed into the twin tower of the New York World Trade Centre. 3000 people met a horrifying death. But in Srebrenica more than 13 000 Bosnian Muslims were slaughtered by the Serbs virtually in full view of the Dutch United Nations troops who were stationed there to protect them.

..13000 Bosniaks were slaughtered at Srebrenica. Yet today the world hardly knows and those who know hardly remember the systematic massacre in Srebrenica. The world had gone to war against the terrorism because of September 11. The world should have gone to war earlier for what the Serbs did must certaintly be considered an act of terror, deliberate and systematic acts of terror, acts of terror announced to the world as ethnic cleansing.

..Certaintly the response is different from the massacre of 6 million Jews almost 60 years ago. To this day, the holocaust is remembered and the world is forced to atone for it, excusing all Jewish crimes against Arabs wo are not guilty of even a single death in the holocaust."

Untuk bacaan lanjut bolehla cari buku ni kat Kinokuniya.
Kebelakangan ni saya sedang dalam usaha nak kurangkan beli buku. Ada dua sebab utama;
1) Banyak lagi buku-buku di rak tak terbaca! Yela sebab buku-buku yang baru beli lebih diutamakan dulu, mana taknye.
2) takde duit woi!
Maka tindakan seterusnya ialah untuk mengurangkan persinggahan ke kedai-kedai buku. kohkoh.
