A Post For Voiceless Refugees

The suffering.
Perhaps, we could says that the poor's life is suffer. Yes, they suffers financially, but they still having the loved family. Then, how the sufferings of someone who lost the loved ones and didn't know where to stay because of no countries accepting them officially. Can you imagine it ?

According to UNHCR (United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees), Article 1 A (2) of the 1951 Convention and Protocol Relating to the Status Of Refugees, the term “refugee” shall apply to any person who:
As a result of events occurring before 1 January 1951 and owing to wellfounded fear of being persecuted for reasons of race, religion, nationality, membership of a particular social group or political opinion, is outside the country of his nationality and is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to avail himself of the protection of that country; or who, not having a nationality and being outside the country of his former habitual residence as a result of such events, is unable or, owing to such fear, is unwilling to return to it.

In this opportunity I hope the countries that did not yet ratify the 1951 Convention above, willing to do it.

I quote a very interesting comment from Rummuser, in my post "Give Your Voice For Refugee", like these :
"....India is already an overpopulated country. So far it has accepted these refugees and tried to get them to be better off than they were before they left their countries. Now, with terrorists being identified from among the so called refugees, a back lash is building up and there are fears that the problems can only get worse. If the countries of origin of these people would do something about keeping them in their own countries, it would help!!"

How you think about the matter of terrorist among refugees? How to solve it?

  3. Homo homini lupus. Only human in this planet earth able to do something hurt to their own species.
    We create an imaginary border called nation only to show the world that we're different. And by doing this, some member of human race didn't have 'place' anywhere in this world.
    What is the different anyway? Who are we to judge they didn't belong here or there?

  10. The problem of the refugees have now become part of life

  11. its become a huge problem these days .This problem should really be taken care of real soon.feel sorry those people.

  12. Hi, you have received the Lemonade Award; please visit to see your award. Have a wonderful day.

  13. It seems you are doubly blessed, I have just realized that Mckay sent you the same award, feel free to ignore mine.

  14. Tikno, your receiving this award twice in the same week is a testament to the wonderful work you are doing in the blogging community.

    I hope that you will not ignore Carole's award. On the contrary, you should mention that you were honored twice. By two people who did not know that the other frequented your site.

    Your blessings are coming in abundance. Obviously you have drawn this recognition to you. Because, what you put out into the universe is what you get back.

    Enjoy the moment and continue doing great work!!!

  15. What creates a terrorist in the first place? Being marginalized from society. Perhaps we need to reach out to these people and bring them back into society somehow. Is that possible, or is it too late?

  16. Announcement.
    From the last three days, the flood is happening to my city and now entering my house. The internet connection often had problems. I'm sorry for the late reply. Thank you for understanding my conditions. I feels a horrible days. I must move all electronic goods quickly to a higher place, especially to switch off all electricity. I promise to reply your comment soon.

  17. Take care of yourself, Tikno. That's the most important thing.

  18. dear Sir,
    about the problem of terrorist among refugee, I ever learned about the case like this.
    as long as I study I recognize the concept of complex humanitarian emergency (CHEx). CHEx is a phenomena wheres not only war that occur but, followed by other phenomena like mass displacement, hunger, death, diseases endemic, and the other violation. and most important of this is those phenomena is not natural but MAN MADE.
    So, it can be concluded that the existence of violence or unsecure condition in the world now is a constructed by the people. people who really want to create the violence just for their interest or politics. so there's a political motive here.
    like chidl soldiers or civilians abusive in Africa, sometimes some groups creates it just for instrument of their politic.
    I think it is same with the case of refugee that you wrote. the existence of terrorist maybe replacement the refugee just for their political instrument or increasing their political opportunity. But it just my argument, I dont know the truth.
    thank you for posting this

  19. Hi sir, I wrote the similar thing with refugee. it's about IDPs
    lets check it out ^-^

  20. Dear Toim,
    Yes, terrorist could do anything, including enter into among refugees. That is what my reader, Rummuser, said above. Please share your thoughts about how to solving that problem. Have an idea??
    Dear Antok,
    Thank you for your comment.

    Dear Sawali,
    Unfortunately you not posting it, although you have been knew it from BlogCatalog. Thank you for your comment.
    Dear Djoko Wahjuadi,
    It's interesting of what you say. Whether being refused is related to dignity? Whatever of the reason, terror cannot be used for gaining the dignity.
    Dear Mckay K,
    Wow... thank you so much. It's my honor from you, also from Carol King.
    Dear Anthony Harman,

STOP the hatred war in the social networking site

Lately, I feel very worried by unscrupulous users of Facebook who already out of the spirit of Facebook motto namely "Facebook helps you connect and share with the people in your life". Some of Facebook users who use this site only for uploading pornographic images and shared it using private setting to certain people (not shared to everyone) and the other using it for spreading the hatred feelings, like a Facebook Group calling for Obama's death.

Although a very controversial Pages on Facebook namely "Everybody Draw Mohammed Day" which it created by Seattle cartoonist Molly Norris has been closed by Facebook after receiving protests from various parties including protests from the Indonesian government, the most recent controversy is the two opposing group on Facebook who mocked each other namely: "Everybody Draw Mohammed day (Indonesian version)" and the other one is "Everybody Draw Jesus day (Indonesian version)". As I observed on its la…


In this post I only quotes the things associated with the two words above. Please use your sense and read carefully to find and feel the fundamental differences from it.

According to Wikipedia: "A veto, Latin for "I FORBID" is used to denote that a certain party has the right to stop unilaterally a certain piece of legislation. In practice, the veto can be ABSOLUTE (as in the U.N. Security Council, whose permanent members can block any resolution). In the United Nations Security Council, the five permanent members (the United States, Russia, the People's Republic of China, France and the United Kingdom) have veto power in substantive matters, though NOT in procedural ones. If any of these countries votes against a proposal, it is REJECTED, even if all of the other member countries vote in favor.

According to Global Policy Forum: "The five permanent members of the Security Council (China, France, Russia, United Kingdom, and United States) ENJOY the privileg…

Equalize bachelor's degree with diploma's degree

At this time many Indonesian students continue to the higher education in various universities in Australia to obtain academic degrees such as Bachelor, Master or Doctorate. My three cousin and several other relatives also continue the higher education in Australia after finished Senior High School in Indonesia.

But I was startled after knowing the news from Antara News that the policy of Directorate General of Higher Education (Department of National Education) is to equalize Bachelor degree from several universities in Australia only equal to the Diploma-3 degree (D-3) in Indonesia. This policy was determined on 01 July 2009 within the Peraturan Direktur Jendral Pendidikan Tinggi (English : Regulation of Directorate General of Higher Education) Nomor:82/DIKTI/Kep/2009 concerning the assessment guidelines to certificate of foreign graduate. This regulation was followed up with the surat edaran Direktur Akademik (circular letter from Academic Director) No: 1850.1/D2.5/2009. At point n…

What a PhD mean for you

What is Ph.D.? Yes I know it is a prestigious academic degree. Only that? Hmm... I think NO. It's hard to describe it in words. You better focus on the illustration below:

And... the things that made me fall silent is what was said by Matt, below:
If you zoom in on the boundary of human knowledge in the direction of genetics, there's something just outside humanity's reach. My wife and I chose to start funding these graduate students after we learned that our son has a rare, fatal genetic disorder. It may be too late for my son, but it's not too late for other children. Even one child suffering is one child too many. The only way to end this kind of suffering is science. And, the best way to do science is through graduate students.

What a beautiful thoughts that touched my heart.

Kartini's Day and Indonesian women

Recently on April 21 the Indonesian nation commemorate Kartini's Day. Actually Kartini's Day is similar to Mother's Day (celebrated in Indonesia on December 22) or International Women's Day. Perhaps to understand Mother's Day you need to understand a person in your life called Mother, and for the International Women's Day and Kartini's Day perhaps you need to understand the person in your life called wife or sister. If you are underestimating women then firstly you need to look at your mother. Am I wrong?

In short: That is all for women. In wider meaning: That is how these special Day to further raise the awareness of Indonesian society or even the world - especially the women themselves - about women rights, their struggle for equality, and their important role in various spheres of life. This is also an occasion for Indonesian women to review how far their struggle get acknowledgment especially from the point of view of Indonesian traditional society who…
