Napoleon, Condi dan kini Obama.

(Ulasan lawatan Barack Obama ke Timur Tengah)

obama1

Dia datang lagi
membawa madah hipokrasi
ke bumi kita ini.

Dalam ucaptama membentang kata menyelimut misi
mengikut jejak dua ratus sebelas tahun Nepoleon dan empat tahun Condi.

Dengan kata semanis gula
dengan wajah bermanis muka
cuba menyembunyi tangan merah berdosa
di balik tirai senyuman berkaca.

Ketika dia diberi hamparan pemaidani merah di Kaherah
bumi kita di Iraq dan Afghanistan merah bermandi darah.

Ketika dia memeluk mesra
ibu-ibu dan anak-anak gadis kita
dirangkul paksa dan diperkosa.

Ketika tangannya diganding
saudara kita dipenjara dan dilayan seperti anjing.

Ketika tangan kanannya menghulur salam
tangan kirinya pula tangkas menikam.

Bila datang bertandang, amboi…
pandai dia menguntum senyum tersempoi
hilang pula lagaknya yang kengkang seperti koboi.

Masihkah lagi kita tega ditipu
oleh tingkah simusang seperti ayam berbulu?

Nota:

  • Condoleezza Rice gave her call for democracy in Cairo {June 21st 2005}:

“For 60 years, my country, the United States, pursued stability at the expense of democracy in this region …. it is time to abandon the excuses that are made to avoid the hard work of democracy. Now, we are taking a different course. We are supporting the democratic aspirations of all people” .

  • Napoleon I’s speech on the 1798 French invasion of Egypt:

“Soldiers, you are a wing of the army of England! You are masters of the modes of warfare appropriate to mountains, to plains, to sieges. Naval war remains to complete your experience.”

“The Roman legions whom you have sometimes imitated, but not as yet equaled, fought Carthage successively upon this sea and upon the plains of Zama. Victory never forsook them, because they were constantly brave, patient of fatigue, well disciplined, resolute. But, soldiers, Europe has her eyes upon you! You have great destinies to fulfil, battles to fight, fatigues to surmount!”

“Frenchmen, you are about to undertake a conquest of which the effects upon the civilization and commerce of the world are incalculable. The first city you are to meet was founded by Alexander.”

“Cadis, Sheiks, Imams, Chorbadgys, you will be told that I came to destroy your religion; do not believe it. Let your answer be that I come to reestablish your rights and punish your usurpers, and that I have more respect than the Mamelukes for your God, his Prophet, and the Koran.”

“Tell your people that all men are equal before God. Wisdom, talent, and virtue make the only difference between them.”

“But, is there a fine country? It is appropriated by the Mamelukes. Is there a beautiful slave, a fine horse, a fine house? All this belongs to the Mamelukes. If Egypt be their farm, let them show the lease which God has given them of it! But God is just and merciful to the people. The Egyptians will be called to fill the public stations. Let the wisest, the most enlightened, the most virtuous govern, and the people will be happy.”

“You had formerly large cities, great canals, a flourishing commerce. What has ruined them all if not the avarice, the injustice, and the tyranny of the Mamelukes?”

“Cadis, Sheiks, Imams, Chorbadgys, tell the people that we, too, are true Mussulmans. Is it not we who demolished the pope, the great enemy of the Mussulmans? Are we not the friends of the grand seignior?”

“Thrice happy those who shall be found on our side! They will prosper in fortune and rank. Happy those who shall remain neutral! They will have time to know the result, and then will join us.”

“But woe, eternal woe, to those who take arms in favor of the Mamelukes and fight against us! There will be no hope for them; they will perish!”

“Sheiks, Ulemas, believers of Mohammed, make known to the people that those who have been enemies to me will find no refuge either in this world or the other. Is there a man so blind as not to see that Destiny itself directs my operations?”

      Salam akhi,

      Ana sebenarnya lelaki bukannya perempuan.🙂

      Jika ana perempuan sudah tentu ‘nickname’ ana adalah Fikrah Mustanirah… tapi kan ‘nickname’ ana tak bergitu.🙂

      Mungkin juga kekeliruan ini timbul kerana sajak-sajak ana kurang elemen maskulin… hehehe!

      Wasalam.
