    your statements:
    “A moslem but not a terrorist.
    An Indonesian but not a coruptor. He is just a normal citizens of the world who loves to see the world’s smile =).”
    indicate you are apologizing for what you are, a Muslim Indonesian. You can be & you may deserve it. But neither Muslims are terrorists, nor Indonesians are corrupt. DO NOT EQUATE THESE NEGATIVE TERMS WITH NATIONS & RELIGIONS OF GOD.
    find some other excuses for what you are.

      Thank you for your comment and advice.

      I’m sorry if those statements may give negative perspective or meaning.
      I actually made a statement to explain to the readers that not all Muslims or Indonesians are identical to those negative terms. Because, at least, there is one person (whom is Indonesian Muslim) who do not practice terrorism or corruption.

      I don’t want to ban those who do corruption to recognize themselves as Indonesian or those who do terrorism to recognize themselves as Muslims. Those are their rights to define themselves.

    Give a man a match, and he’ll be warm for a minute, but set him on fire, and he’ll be warm for the rest of his life.
