Hiro Onoda, a true Soldier

Posted in Uncategorized on August 15, 2008 by damartriadi

This is a true story of a Japanese Soldier in WW II that stood loyally until 1974, 29 years after the end of WWII. He was ordered to remain at his position until further  orders, and he did exactly that.

This is his story:

Onoda was trained by the Nakano School, after which he was stationed on Lubang Island in the Philippines. He was there when it was reclaimed by the Allies in February 1945, towards the conclusion of World War II. Most of the Japanese troops were killed or captured by Allied forces. Onoda, and several other men, hid in the jungle.

The Dream I had

Posted in Uncategorized on July 31, 2008 by damartriadi

In it, I stood in a fort, whose occupants were soldiers of the Islamic Republic. Some of these soldiers were from Iran, others from Lebanon and other Islamic countries. The fort was being surrounded by a coalition Army consist of what appears to be of GI outfit in Northern European camouflage scheme, Commonwealth soldiers with uniform that of the Buckingham Palace Guard, and Bedouin Arabs.

The Islamic Republic troops had Black Flag, like Hezbollah’s and Sepah’s flag. The Bedouin Arabs wore female clothing (fully covered black chador), with banner written on it “La ilaha illallah” of blood ink. They had no weapons except they shout very loudly and did nothing except a hard distraction. They were also very aggressive, running amok whenever they attack. The British/Commonwealth army attacked through a human wave attack, just like what the armies of World War I did in early 20th century. The GI’s didn’t come near at all. They relied on their Arab allies and British friend, while intermittently provided “fire support” of fireworks or dud-missiles (although some of them did create damages eventually).

The foiled invasion attempt, where 1 million-strong Western invasion army was decimated, was 3 years ago. The world witnesses with its own eyes how “justice” works. Al-Mahdi is no longer a symbol of hoped for humanity; he has become the real leader that saved humanity. Jesus AS has declared allegiance with the holy Imam, his church is now a part of the world “single religion”. The world is no longer separated by religions, but rather by two types of men: those who accept the One God under the World Government, and those who reject Divine Omnipresence mainly in North America, Western Europe and China.

Posted in Uncategorized on June 19, 2008 by damartriadi

by : Arif Mulyadi

KEPERCAYAAN pada konsep dan eksistensi Imam Mahdi agaknya sudah menjadi kepercayaan umum, baik di kalangan Islam maupun non-Islam, baik Ahlusunnah maupun Syi’ah. Hal ini dapat dibuktikan dari berbagai kajian ilmiah yang terbit di Tanah Air. Yang menjadi objek perselisihan di kalangan umat Islam adalah masalah penetapan identitas Imam Mahdi itu sendiri.
