Malaysia Airlines

Breaking News - The official underwater search for Malaysia Airlines Flight MH370 has been suspended, just shy of 3 years since the plane with 239 souls onboard disappeared. Despite the intense and vast search for answers, little is known about what really happened on 08 March 2014, while theories have developed based on small pieces of the plane which washed ashore last year, as well as data received by satellites and radars, no concrete evidence stands.

On a personal note, my heart goes out to the families who have spent the last 3 years begging for answers, begging for closure. My heart also goes out to those who have passionately searched for MH370, whether in the office or in the field. I have followed this case closely, and am deeply saddened to see the official search come to an end, but we will not rest. Independent research and private searches will continue, more debris will wash ashore and eventually, we will pinpoint her final resting place, and finally uncover what really happened. We will never forget, and we will never stop looking for the truth. Godspeed MH370.

One year ago today, 17 July 2014, Malaysian Airlines flight MH17 was travelling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur when it was shot down over east Ukraine. All 283 passengers and 15 crew died. The crew were all Malaysian and about two-thirds (68%) of the passengers were Dutch citizens, while many of the other passengers were Australians and Malaysians. May they all rest in peace.

A family of four arrived at this sight around the same time as I did. The eldest daughter started crying and buried herself in her mother’s arms. 

A young male security guard read the cards and letters and looked at the flowers with tears in his eyes. His older colleague put her arm around him. 

A guy wearing a t-shirt with ‘Bitch don’t kill my fissa’ on his back looked at me with eyes filled with tears. We didn’t speak but I think I understood exactly how he felt at that moment.

I’m just so very glad I got off the train at Schiphol Airport and left a small bouquet of white roses at the flower memorial.

Am I the only one who gets kind of upset that Tumblr seems to care more about Nash Grier saying stupid shit than a civillian airplane most likely being shot with a missile and Israel basically invading Gaza? Maybe it’s because I’m Dutch and a lot of Dutch people died on that plane but it really just bothers me how selective Tumblr seems to be with what they freak out about.

We live in an age where everyone has a camera on them one way or another and information is spread around the globe at the speed of light and the degree at which we apply and regard security is at an all time high….

…. and somehow a two hundred feet long, three hundred thousand pound aircraft carrying two hundred and thirty-nine souls has completely vanished.


Our tiny blue marble has become frighteningly huge in the worst way possible

The Genocide of Children

For all the world leaders who sit there in silence that say nothing and do nothing. Who start wars and don’t listen to their people.

For all the rebels and terrorists that think you’re doing God’s work and shattering human emotions.

For all the incapable nations that rise up against nations.

For all the rapes, abuse, the planes that get shot down, the wars that make it okay and justify ways to take life.

For every part of the darker side, you’re killing all the medics who are trying to save the wounded, all the journalists risking their lives to show us the news that’s in hiding, all the scientists that are researching to save lives and the parents and loved ones who are grieving for their murdered children, brothers, sisters, husbands, mums and dads.

You have failed us. You have broken our hearts, shattered our progress and repeated history over and over again. How do you still lead when you repeat mistakes over and over?

We trusted you to run governments to represent our views for a better life.

I want you to know about all the children who will never get to see another day in their lives. I want you to know what it feels like for a mother to never see her precious angel smile again or to hear their voice. You destroyed their future and their life. You shot down their hopes and blew up their dreams. What gives you the right to do that?

The children don’t understand what you’re doing. They don’t understand why there’s pain. They don’t understand why their kind is shooting at them. They don’t know why there’s blood coming out of their face, their soul. They trusted you to protect them. They trusted you. Instead you gave them genocide, soldiers with guns and tanks against children.

When you took aim at children playing on rooftops, did you know they were being children and enjoying their childhood? When you missed and they were running away, that fear embedded on every breath they took, you aimed again and got them. You single-handedly destroyed humanity. You fired at hope, at innocence and you took all of us out with them!

I hope one day we’ll wake up to a better world, where humanity is not devouring, illiterate bastards and we can walk to the graves of those innocent children that bled emotion, that didn’t understand what was going on and say sorry that we were unkind, incompetent human beings who denied them their right to live.

I don’t fear monsters in the night, I fear humanity and I fear the world we live in, people like you.

I will cry every night for these children because their pain and their parents pain hurts too much for words to carry. Human emotion has a way to express this heartache where no words dare travel; by our tears, when it’s too much, we breakdown.

I wish we could have been better for you, I wish mankind would have given you the chance to see the world we love and protected you.

I wish things were different.

“…And Allah Knows, while you know not.”  - Surah Al-Baqarah verse 213

For whatever reasons that might happen to any of us, Allah has better plans for us, and not a single thing happened without a hikmah. And Allah has the power to hide which are seen to be unseen.

Our DOA and prayers are still with the passengers, air crew, and the family members of missing flight MH0370. May Allah keeps them in safety. And let us make DOA for the rescue effort teams from various countries for their well being and their dedications in their duty. May Allah guides them to the MH0370. Ameen.

I have heard some British lawyers are going to launch a class-action lawsuit against me for aiding the rebels in Ukraine and for shooting down Flight MH17. Let me contemplate whether I should worry about this or not while I sit on my GOLD FUCKING THRONE.
