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.
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.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.
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!
