Basically, as many other person do, I am always, emotionally, supporting of freedom in all human base right: living, religion, speaking, and other common rights.

This problem is one of the most popular occupation issues in mass media in Indonesia, even though many people see it as a faith-religion issue, a definitely wrong perspective. Until today, I have no idea how the most people in my home country aware of this issue, but I’m quite sure they’re emotionally have the same hope as me, supporting of no more occupation, in any motives.

I cant even found a country named Palestine in Google???
As I always keep in my mind that Jakarta is capital city of Indonesia; Tokyo, Washington DC, and London are the capital of Japan, United States, and United Kingdom, respectively; then I also remind that the capital city of Israel is Tel Aviv. But now, OMG! am I fool or something?? Since when the Israeli have Yerussalem as their capital city?? so whats happen to Palestinian??
