The hopeless OIC

Posted: 26 Mar 2014 09:01 PM PDT

Perkasa president Ibrahim Ali yesterday questioned the 'absence' of OIC (Organisation of Islamic Conference) countries from MH370 as none of them 'neither said nor do anything' to help Malaysia which is also a member.

To me, it was a statement 'well-noted'. There have been others who questioned the sincerity of the Arabs in attending to friends in distress.

I remember the devastating Acheh tsunami about nine years ago when the OIC (oh, I see) did 'almost nothing' in providing assistance to Indonesia and others. They preferred to stay away.
Malay rights pressure group Perkasa claimed that there appears to be a lack of solidarity from OIC countries in the search for missing Malaysian Airlines Flight MH370.
In a press release yesterday, Perkasa chief Ibrahim Ali said Malaysians are thankful for the help shown by 26 countries in locating MH370 but questioned OIC's commitment towards member states.
"Where are our brethens from OIC countries? Don't they feel obliged (to help) and sympathise (with us) over this tragedy? Does the (Muslim) brotherhood only exist when they suffer from calamities?" asked Ibrahim.
Currently, the 26 countries that have extended help in the search for MH370 includes Australia, Cambodia, China, France, India, Japan, Laos, Myanmar, New Zealand, Pakistan, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom, United States and Vietnam.
Among the 26 countries are eight OIC member states: Bangladesh, Brunei, Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates and Uzbekistan.
Russia, which has an observer status in the OIC, provided satellite data. Although Norway is not officially credited with joining the search, a commercial ship owned by a Norwegian company was also part of search efforts.
Typical of the Arab Muslims. They can't even solve the problems in the Palestine, let alone their domestic woes. The OIC too is diplomatically 'loosened' over Qatar and other domestic issues.

And they 'only talk' about the plight of the Rohingya people in Myanmar; nothing more was done to assist them.

In the MH370 case, yes, it is disheartening when the rich OIC nations did nothing - not even a single word of condolence.

But does it matter? The Arabs themselves, including OIC are disunited over so many issues, with each and every single country protecting its own interest rather than considering the importance of standing as a team.

So, don't hope anything from them, bro!

AirAsia pilot suspended!

Kudos! AirAsia X, the long-haul arm of budget carrier AirAsia, has suspended a pilot for comments he made online on the search for missing Malaysia Airlines flight MH370, pending a domestic inquiry.

"AirAsia X senior first officer has been suspended pending investigation as company policies were broken in Facebook posting," group chief executive officer Tony Fernandes said in a tweet last night.

Air Asia X chief executive officer Azran Rani Osman added that the first officer contravened a "specific directive" not to publicly comment on the ongoing search.

"(There is a) specific directive to our crew on public comments on MH370. (There is a) duty of care not to be hurtful," he wrote in response to Fernandes' tweet.

When contacted, Air Asia X said that it would not be releasing any further details on the matter.

The AirAsia top guns' comments come as several blogs circulated a picture of an AirAsia X pilot's Facebook post where he criticised the government for declaring that MH370 fell into the Indian Ocean.

I believe he's not the only one to be investigated. There are others...

As the Malay saying goes - "berani buat, berani tanggung!"
