Uskup Rowan Williams Akui Ada Doktrin Kristen yang Ofensif

Jumat, 18 Jul 08 09:56 WIB

Uskup Canterbury dan pimpinan Gereja Anglikan Rowan Williams mengatakan bahwa beberapa doktrin dalam agama Kristen isinya bisa dianggap “menyerang umat Islam.” Williams menyatakan hal tersebut dalam suratnya yang di kirim ke sejumlah pemuka agama Islam.

Dalam surat itu ia menulis, dalam upaya dialog dan menumbuhkan kesepahaman antara Muslim dan Kristiani, ada beberapa bagian dalam doktrin agama Kristen yang “sulit dan kadang bersifat ofensif bagi umat Islam.” Contohnya, tulis William, konsep trinitas yang menyebutkan bahwa Tuhan itu adalah Bapak, Putera dan Roh Kudus. Konsep ini bertentangan dengan konsep Islam yang menegaskan bahwa Tuhan itu satu.

“Saya yakin, demi dialog yang terbuka dan hati-hati, penting untuk melakukan upaya mengklarifikasi tentang konsep ini, ” kata Williams.

Namun, apa yang ditulis Williams dan suratnya untuk para pemuka Muslim itu memicu kemarahan para politisi dan pemuka Kristen di Inggris. “Pernyataan itu sunggung aneh. Ini bukan akhir permainan baik bagi umat Kristiani maupun Muslim, ” kata David Phillips, sekretaris jenderal kelompok Evangelis konservatif The Church Society. Read the rest of this entry »

Sebutan Kiyai
vikar

Gelar Kiyai, KH, Kiai atau kiyahi semakin membudaya di Indonesia yang sangat diidentikkan dengan islam. Di satu sisi, gelar tersebut dapat dijadikan kebanggaan sebagai alat dan sarana dalam penyiaran islam, di sisi lain, gelar tersebut pun dapat dijadikan sebagai senjata penghancur islam, untuk itu perlu kiranya saya tulis sedikit tentang gelar kiyai tersebut agar tidak terjadi kesalahfahaman antara islam dan muslim.

Pengertian Kiyai

Dalam buku “Kiai Penghulu Jawa, Peranannya di Masa Kolonial”, oleh Drs H Ibnu Qoyim Isma’il MS menjelaskan sebagai berikut:

“Di tengah perkembangan masyarakat Indonesia pada umumnya dijumpai beberapa gelar sebutan yang diperuntukkan bagi ulama. Misalnya, di daerah Jawa Barat (Sunda) orang menyebutnya “Ajengan”, di wilayah Sumatera Barat disebut “Buya”, di daerah Aceh dikenal dengan panggilan “Teungku”, di Sulawesi Selatan dipanggil dengan nama “Tofanrita”, di daerah Madura disebut dengan “Nun” atau “Bendara” yang disingkat “Ra”, dan di Lombok atau seputar daerah wilayah Nusa Tenggara orang memanggilnya dengan “Tuan Guru”.

Khusus bagi masyarakat Jawa, gelar yang diperuntukkan bagi ulama anatara lain “Wali”. Gelar ini biasanya diberikan kepada ulama yang sudah mencapai tingkat yang tinggi, memiliki kemampuan pribadi yang luar biasa. Sering pula para wali ini dipanggil dengan “Sunan” (Susuhunan) seperti halnya para raja. Gelar lainnya ialah “Panembahan”, yang diberikan kepada ulama yang lebih ditekankan pada aspek spiritual, juga menyangkut segi kesenioran, baik usia maupun “nasab” (keturunan). Hal ini untuk menunjukkan bahwa sang ulama tersebut mempunyai kekuatan spiritual yang tinggi. Read the rest of this entry »

Julukan Kiyai untuk Ulama Perlu Dihapus

Kiyai Itu Apa?

Julukan Kiyai untuk Ulama Perlu Dihapus

Oleh : Ustadz Hartono Ahmad Jaiz

Julukan atau sebutan Kiyai atau Kiai atau Kiyahi ( كياهي)  ) sering menjadi pertanyaan orang. Apa sebenarnya makna Kiyai itu. Dari mana asal muasal nama Kiyai itu. Dan apa sebenarnya ciri-ciri serta hal-hal yang harus dilakukan oleh para Kiyai. Pertanyaan itu lebih mencuat lagi ketika orang-orang yang disebut Kiyai atau para Kiyai ada yang dinilai berbuat yang di luar jalur kebiasaan, misalnya ada yang  patut diduga sebagai provokator, ada yang jadi pengipas-ngipas suasana dengan memanasi anak buah untuk melawan terhadap lawan-lawan politik, ada yang memanas-manasi untuk mendukung Presiden Gus Dur / Abdurrahman Wahid karena presidennya dari golongan sang Kiyai itu, yaitu Nahdlatul Ulama dengan partainya PKB (Partai Kebangkitan Bangsa). Tidak jarang pula ada Kiyai yang suka kumpul-kumpul sesamanya, hingga disebut Kiyai khos (khusus) yang kaitannya erat dengan soal dukung mendukung terhadap kursi presiden yang sedang diduduki oleh golongannya.

Tetapi di balik itu ada Kiyai dogdeng (kebal) yang suka sesumbar bahwa wadyabalanya rata-rata jadug (sakti, tidak mempan senjata tajam). Ada juga Kiyai yang dari zaman Orde Baru pimpinan Presiden Soehartosukanya mendekat-dekat dengan penguasa, bahkan pernah bersama-sama puluhan Kiyai dipimpin Nur Iskandar SQ menghadiahi emas beberapa kilogram kepada Presiden Soeharto dengan dalih untuk mengatasi krisis ekonomi/ moneter. Setelah para Kiyai itu sowan (hadir dengan penuh ketundukan) ke tempat Presiden Soeharto, justru tak lama kemudian sang Presiden dipaksa turun dengan didemonstrasi oleh puluhan ribu mahasiswa selama dua minggu, hingga ia menyatakan turun dari kursi kepresidenan 1998.

Sen. Karen Johnson’s floor speech about 9/11

Provided to the Tribune

9/11 Floor Speech

MR. PRESIDENT – POINT OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE.

INTRODUCTION OF GUESTS IN THE GALLERY … and then I WOULD LIKE TO REQUEST THAT MY REMARKS OF MORE THAN 200 WORDS BE ENTERED INTO THE JOURNAL.

Members — I would like to introduce a very special guest who has been joined today by several of his closest friends. Up in the gallery, we have many of the members of the Phoenix 9/11 Truth group – people who are asking for a new, independent investigation of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001. In particular, I would like to introduce to you a VERY courageous man named Blair Gadsby. I’m going to ask the folks with Blair to help him to stand as I tell you a little about him. Blair is very weak because he has been fasting for more than two weeks to try to bring attention to the cause of 9/11 Truth. This is the 16th day that Blair has gone without food and spent his day outside the office of U.S. Senator John McCain pleading with the senator to take a look at new evidence in the 9/11 crimes. We have one man who is sacrificing his own personal needs and desires to stand boldly pleading for the world to take notice, to question, to research and not place their lives into the hands of media sound-bites, – to think for themselves, consciously and critically. Blair is an educator and to me this is what the great educators do. Thousands of people all over the country and actually around the world have been watching on the internet as this Hunger Strike progresses here in Phoenix. I want Blair to know that I am his biggest fan and that good people everywhere admire him for his courage and determine. Please give a warm welcome to Blair Gadsby and the Phoenix 9/11 Truth movement. (STOP) Read the rest of this entry »

The case of Curt Weldon: Republican congressman targeted after criticizing 9/11 cover-up

The case of Curt Weldon: Republican congressman targeted after criticizing 9/11 cover-up

By Patrick Martin
23 October 2006

A series of FBI raids only three weeks before the November 7 election have dealt a blow to the political fortunes of Republican Congressman Curt Weldon. Federal agents raided the homes of Weldon’s daughter and a close political supporter on October 16, allegedly looking for evidence of an influence-peddling scheme involving the congressman and a Russian oil company.

It is impossible to determine whether there is substance to the charge that the ten-term Republican from the Philadelphia suburbs engaged in corrupt relations with the Itera International Energy Corp., a huge oil and gas supplier which hired Solutions North America, a lobbying firm headed by Karen Weldon and Charles Sexton Jr., a long-time Weldon crony. No one who follows the activities of the US Congress, however, would be shocked if the accusation turned out to be true. Read the rest of this entry »

in the villages of Farmakan and Bakhtabad of Zerkoh Valley in the Shindand district, Herat Province. Survivors of the night-time air raid which destroyed three homes reported that local people had resisted U.S. occupation Special Forces breaking into homes and searching women’s rooms. The U.S. troops killed Haji Nasrullah Khan, an important local tribal leader and Arbab Daulat, their 2 children, as well as some 20 other civilians. Tribal elder, Haji Zalmai, and the Shindand district chief, Lal Muhammad, confirmed the civilian killings. At least four civilians – two children, a man and a woman – were treated in a Herat hospital (photo below). Predictably, a NATO spokesman promulgated, “All indicators were that (the operation) had been successful with a number of insurgents killed and no reports of civilian casualties.” Read the rest of this entry »
