So, From The Rising Eye, A Dove Cometh....

So much for taking a break during the Ramadhan month. I saw the pakatan logo for National Day previously, and I guess, not just me, but many saw the dove portrayed in the logo prominently. I'm sure pakatan will refer the dove as "freedom" but we have always known that there is always more than meets the eye with pakatan.

I read a very good and detailed analysis by Helen Ang on this issue, and it is best that the articles be referred here

Logo Hari Merdeka Pakatan ada elemen-elemen Kristian

Burung merpati melambangkan Roh Kudus, iaitu jasad ketiga Tuhan Triniti dalam agama Kristian. 

Simbolisme burung merpati merah adalah berdasarkan tindakan “Christ redeemed Man with his blood”.

Banyak ayat al-Kitab (terutamanya buku-buku Gospel) yang merujuk kepada burung merpati.

Surah John 1:32

    Ayat 32 John testified saying, “I have seen the Spirit descending as a dove out of heaven, and He remained upon Him. 33 “I did not recognize Him, but He who sent me to baptize in water said to me, ‘He upon whom you see the Spirit descending and remaining upon Him, this is the One who baptizes in the Holy Spirit.’ 34 “I myself have seen, and have testified that this is the Son of God.”

Matthew 3:16

    16 As soon as Jesus was baptized, he went up out of the water. At that moment heaven was opened, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove and lighting on him. 17 And a voice from heaven said, “This is my Son, whom I love; with him I am well pleased.”

Mark 1:10

    10 Immediately coming up out of the water, He saw the heavens opening, and the Spirit like a dove descending upon Him; 11 and a voice came out of the heavens: “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.”

Luke 3:22

    22 and the Holy Spirit descended upon Him in bodily form like a dove, and a voice came out of heaven, “You are My beloved Son, in You I am well-pleased.”

(Kemeja-T untuk sambutan Subang Rally – “Take Subang for Jesus” – juga menggunakan cogankata ‘Ignite for Christ’. Baca sini ).

Hati merah suci merupakan satu lagi simbol penting dalam ikonografi Kristian.

Logo Hari Kemerdekaan yang direkacipta Pakatan mempunyai simbol burung merpati, hati merah dan kelopak bunga yang nampaknya macam nyalaan api Holy Spirit.

Simbol Gereja

Burung merpati adalah lambang gereja.

Ia juga simbol Kristian dalam lukisan-lukisan bercorak keagamaan serta digunakan sebagai hiasan popular untuk kad Krismas dan kad ucapan tahniah bagi upacara pengkristianan bayi dan kanak-kanak.

The Church: Dove as a symbol of the Church, the agent through which the Holy Spirit works on Earth.

Pentecost: Whitsunday, a feast of the universal Church which commemorates the Descent of the Holy Ghost upon the Apostles, 50 days after the Resurrection of Christ.

    Saint Gregory is generally shown with a dove on his shoulder, symbolizing inspiration or rather Divine guidance.

Baptism: The dove symbol occurs frequently in connection with early representations of baptism.

In ancient times a dove-like vessel was frequently suspended over the baptismal fount.

Martyrdom: As a symbol of martyrdom it indicated the action of the Holy Spirit in bestowal of the fortitude necessary for the endurance of suffering.

Dove as a Christian symbol, rujuk

I am guessing that the pakatan logo was never designed by a Muslim, or could have been designed outside of Malaysia itself. This is quite common as we know anwar's strategies have been formulated outside of the country. Is it also a coincidence that the dove logo is also used by the Dove Outreach Centre whose leader wanted to burn the Holy Qur'an?

Does it ever surprise anybody anymore? The logo, coming from a party headed by a chap who uses other symbols (most probably, his bosses') as his logo? No, anwar might not be using any dove, but he sure has a lot of one-eyes supporting him, from the rising Eye of Horus, to the rising eye of PKR logo.
With all those eyes, anwar and pakatan can never see the truth...

Maybe it is time for Muslims and Malaysians know just who anwar and his pakatan are, and who are the people hiding in plain sight, aiding him. Maybe it is time for pakatan supporters to see with both eyes who they are supporting. Of course, if they can see, will they ever believe? That's a different question.

 Hadith - Bukhari 9.241, Narrated Abdullah ibn Umar

Allah's Apostle stood up amongst the people and then praised and glorified Allah as He deserved and then he mentioned Ad-Dajjal, saying, "I warn you of him, and there was no prophet but warned his followers of him; but I will tell you something about him which no prophet has told his followers: Ad-Dajjal is one-eyed whereas Allah is not."
