    Apakah Ini Tanda Kemenangan Palestina atas Israel?

    REPUBLIKA.CO.ID, GAZA — Ada yang menarik saat pasukan udara Israel membombardir salah satu masjid di Gaza, Sabtu (12/7). Saat umat Muslim hendak menunaikan shalat Shubuh, serangan rudal Israel menewaskan setidaknya empat warga tidak berdosa.

    Saat imam masjid mencari puing-puing yang tersisa dari serangan tersebut, ditemukan Alquran yang masih utuh dengan keadaan terbuka. Suatu kebetulan, salah satu ayat dalam keadaan terbuka tersebut berbunyi “Kemenangan sudah dekat bagi mereka yang tetap teguh.”

    Mengetahui hal tersebut, sang imam meyakini hal tersebut bukan suatu kebetulan dan merupakan kuasa Allah SWT. “Ini adalah rumah Allah,” ujar Muhammad Hamad, imam junior masjid seperti dikutip OnIslamNet, Ahad (13/7).

    Ahad, Israel kembali melancarkan serangan. Kali ini masjid dan pusat penyandang cacat di Gaza. Serangan ke kedua lembaga tersebut, dinilai sebagian pihak sebagai bentuk kefrustrasian Israel.

    "Mereka bangkrut dari target dan rasa kasihan. Apa yang dilakukan penyandang cacat untuk bertahan?" ujar Azzedin Ali, warga di sekitar.

    Sebelumnya, ada peringatan yang dilontarkan Israel ke Direktur pusat penyandang cacat sebelum roket menghantam atap klinik. Namun, kondisi penghuni yang merupakan penyandang cacat dan saat itu menjelang waktu shubuh membuat mereka sulit untuk menyelamatkan diri. 

    Setidaknya dua dari para penyandang cacat meninggal dan beberapa terluka dalam serangan tersebut. “Tidak ada yang bisa membayangkan pusat penyandang cacat akan menjadi sasaran bagi siapa pun,” kata Jamila Elaiwa yang mendirikan pusat penyandang cacat sejak 20 tahun yang lalu itu.

    Sampai hari ini, serangan udara Israel di jalur Gaza telah memasuki hari keenam dan jumlah korban meninggal dunia secara keseluruhan berjumlah 165 orang dengan lebih dari seribu orang terluka. Dewan Keamanan PBB juga sudah meminta gencatan senjata segera dilakukan, namun hal tersebut tidak dihiraukan Israel.

    Kematian bukanlah akhir suatu jalanan. Itulah awal pertemuan dengan Sang Maha Besar. Jika kita rindu dengan Allah, bukankah Allah juga rindu dengan kita? Saudara-saudara kita di Gaza banyak yang dijemput oleh malaikat untuk bertemu denganNya lebih dahulu dari pada kita, sungguh betapa mulia posisinya dengan kesyahidannya. Pun banyak diantara mereka (yang hidup dalam kondisi “pembunuhan masal” bukan peperangan) yang hapal Al Quran, bahkan anak-anak, dan diantaranya banyak yang syahid juga. Itulah kebesaranNya. Dalam kondisi yang seperti itu, Allah pun mengangkat derajat orang-orang yang dipilihNya. Pihak yang tidak bisa berbuat banyak seperti saya ini hanya bisa berdoa, semoga Allah angkat derajat mereka lebih tinggi lagi, dan serangan-serangan itu segera berhenti, menuju Pelestina yang damai. Pasti ada jalan keluar!!. Seperti pagi yang akan datang, setelah melewati malam yang gelap gulita. 

    "Kemenangan sudah dekat bagi mereka yang tetap teguh."

    Saya percaya Allah, Dia Maha Pengasih dan Penyayang.

  • Many nights we pray with no proof anyone could hear. And our heart’s a hopeful song we barely understood. Now we are not afraid although we know there’s much to fear. We were moving mountains long before we knew we could.

    They don’t always happen when you ask. And it’s easy to give in to your fear. But when you’re blinded by your pain. Can’t see your way safe through the rain. Thought of a still resilient voice, says love is very near. 

    Oh yes, there can be miracles when you believe. Though hope is frail, it’s hard to kill. Who knows what miracle you can achieve, when you believe. Somehow you will, you will when you believe.

    _Mariah Carey and Whitney Houston_

    Memang harus siap dengan segala bentuk kondisi. PIlih jalan yang Terbaik!  Minta petunjukNya! Terima resikonya! Jalani, persistent, dan pasrah! Tidak ada yang lepas dari kehendak & pertolongan Allah.. daaan tetap semangat!! :D

  • A famous philosopher once said, ” Life is simple, but we insist on making it complicated.” The truth is we don’t know how to make it simple because we’re constantly trying to find what makes us happy. The thing is there’s nothing wrong with trial and error. There’s nothing wrong with failing one too many times and there’s certainly nothing wrong with winning one too many times either. One thing we can all agree on is life isn’t fair. But what is fair is the choice we make to obtain happiness. Some choose to participate. Some choose to disrupt the order. Some get all the attention and some thrive in the shadows. Some enjoy the thrill and some play it safe. Some choose to work hard and some hardly work. Some play the game and some would rather make the rules. The world is too big for any one path to be the right one. So regardless of the path you choose, remember that it remains unique to you. It becomes your story. That is what inspires us.

  • HKS Ash Center Hosts Former President of Indonesia Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibie (1998-1999)

    Former President of Indonesia Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibie (1998-1999)
    Tarek Masoud, Associate Professor of Public Policy

    Thursday, June 5, 2014
    L-130, Littauer Building, Harvard Kennedy School
    5:00 - 6:30 p.m.

    Event Description

    Earlier this June, the Ash Center’s Indonesia program played host to former President of Indonesia Bacharuddin Jusuf Habibie for an event entitled “Democracy and Pluralism: What Can we Learn From Indonesia.” Having held office for two years in the late 1990s, Habibie oversaw Indonesia’s post-Suharto transition from an authoritarian state to an emerging democracy, which HKS Professor and Ash faculty affiliate Tarek Masoud called “one of the world’s most improbable democracies.”

    “It is not the kind of place where we expect democracy to endure, survive, and indeed thrive.”

    Masoud, who has written about the accountability of Indonesia’s public institutions explained, “It is, for example, a very poor country. Its level of per capita income is lower than the kind of magic level we think is necessary for democracies to survive. It is also ethnically heterogeneous, constantly under the pull of centrifugal forces that threaten to pull it apart, and have pulled apart other nations, and yet Indonesia has remained whole… And it is one of the world’s few Muslim-majority countries that is democratic.”

    “There is a great deal to be gained from the Indonesian experience,” said Masoud. “What did [President Habibie] do right in those tender months following Suharto’s overthrow? What are the secrets of democratic reform and could they be mimicked elsewhere? Because the Arab world is currently undergoing the same kind of process that Indonesia went through 16 years ago, these are not only questions of historical importance, but questions of urgency.”

    An Engineer Assumes the Presidency

    Habibie greeted the overcrowded auditorium and began by sharing stories from his early career as an aeronautics engineer. He was raised in Indonesia and educated abroad in Germany, earning a PhD in engineering from the Technical University of Aachen. Known for his innovative approach to design, Habibie had a highly successful career in Germany and was promoted to vice president of a large aeronautics company specializing in the manufacture of helicopters, airplanes, and missiles.

    Habibie recalled the moment in 1974 when Indonesia’s longtime leader, President Suharto, recruited him to spearhead the country’s industrialization efforts. “[Suharto] asked me to prepare Indonesia to enter the next millennial,” said Habibie. “I protested– I told him there are much better people… I can only make airplanes. My bachelor’s degree, master’s degree, and PhD are all in making airplanes. Suharto disagreed. ‘If you can make airplanes’ he said, ‘then you can make everything.’”

    Under Suharto, Habibie held several government posts in Indonesia, including Ministry of Technology and Development where he oversaw a variety of state-owned industries. In March of 1998, Habibie was elected to the vice presidency amid a period of great economic turmoil throughout much of Asia. Escalating inflation, rising unemployment, and mass protests precipitated Suharto’s abrupt resignation a mere three months later — ending 32 years of authoritarian rule in Indonesia.

    In accordance with the constitution, it fell to Habibie to assume the presidency and pick up the shattered pieces of Indonesia’s economy. “People’s basic needs could not be guaranteed, eroding confidence in the president and the whole political system,” said Habibie describing the political upheaval occurring as he took office.

    1.3 Reforms Per Day

    “Given my technical background, I was able to analyze the situation in a systematic and objective manner,” Habibie told the audience. He conceived the term “social vortex” to describe the upending of power occurring in Indonesia from a top-down to a bottom-up government structure where power lies in the hands of the people. “I needed to create [laws] to control this unpredictable social force,” he said.

    Habibie ushered in seminal democratic reforms, including freedom of the press. He described his initial motivation for opening doors to opposition saying: “I received all the reports from the national intelligence party, the army, navy, air force, parliament, interior minister, and foreign minister. None of these reports matched and the result was chaos… How could I verify the quality of the reports? Who was to be trusted? …The people who demonstrate! Freedom to write [will lead to greater accuracy].”

    During his 15-month term as president, Habibie also expandedinternational education opportunities, worked to stabilize the economy, approved the establishment of new political parties, and released political detainees. “Jails are only for criminals,” he said. “Not for those who have an opinion other than those in power.”

    Despite intense opposition from members of parliament and the ruling class, Habibie continued to institute sweeping change– 1.3 new laws per day by his estimate. Speaking on leadership in the face of conflict and chaos, Habibie told the audience: “I can only make progress if I dare to make changes.”

    In October 1999, Habibie peacefully ceded the presidency to Abdurrahman Wahid, an influential Muslim religious leader, setting an important precedent in post-Suharto Indonesia.

    Indonesia’s Democratic Future

    Habibie, who has remained active in politics primarily through the Habibie Center, a think tank he founded in 1999, closed the discussion by outlining six important elements of Indonesia’s future, including:

    (1) The adjustment of Pancasila [guiding philosophy of Indonesia emphasizing “unity in diversity”] to account for globalization and the rise of technology.

    (2) The development of accurate and timely data collection.

    (3) The strengthening of human resources with a focus on education.

    (4) A reduction in unemployment.

    (5) The growth of a larger, stronger middle class.

    Habibie’s closing remarks that “Indonesia needs to become an important bridge between Asia and the U.S. and between Asia and Europe” are particularly poignant. As a Muslim-majority country with over 300 ethnic groups and sizeable religious minorities, Indonesia serves a model for how pluralism and democracy can coexist.

  • Ketika masih masa belajar, harus disadari bahwa waktu yang dimiliki sangat banyak, sedangkan uang dan fasilitas yang tersedia sangat terbatas. Oleh karena itu harus serius memanfaatkan waktu.
