riddles - who am i

these are the riddles for the Treasure Hunt competition at the English Gateaway. there are 8 of us, rahimie, baihaqi, faris, qayyum, hani, nadia, ummu, and me. see if you can Get the right person for each. ^_^

By car, by bus, or even by aeroplane,
Travelling is what i enjoy the most.

Bees are busy because they are hardworking,
But my weekends are busy because i'm loving it.

My acquaintances are many,
As i moved houses a lot,
Along the west coast i have been,
But  not yet the east coast.

Lion is fierce,
Dove is kind,
I may look fierce,
But i am very kind.

Den is to lion,
Burrow is to rabbit,
Hive is to bee,
As Pandan Indah is to me.

Barney loves you,
But Pooh loves me.

My hair is curly,
But i am not Reggedy Ann,
My spectacles are nice,
But i am not the Superman.

Hardy Boys, Famous Five, and Sherlock Holmes,
They are my friends since I was a kid,
Tahan and Kinabalu are gorgeous mountains,
But Ledang is the one that lies in front me.

1924 - part six (end)

here goes the last part of the song. the lyrics alone are insufficient for the whole history. so i'm suggesting that we find out more about it.

In 1960s
Somalia,Nigeria, Kuwait & Algeria

In 1964 Came the PLO
Yaser Arafat,the US scarecrow
a great decline 
In 1969
When the west was training Muslims scholars for hire
Jews were setting Al-Aqsa mosque on fire!

Let us recall 1970
For those who don't remember
That was the year
That we had Black September

The King of Jordan & Yaser Arafat
Began their plot
Shot after shot
Muslim blood spilled
As innocent Muslims were killed
Communism attacked
but Muslims fought back

The sincere Mujahideen of Afghanistan
fought and pushed back the Russians
and then they started to fight among themselves
Khomaine became in power
with the promise of ruling and raising the Ummah to the level of dignity

But his promise never went through
soon after Iran and Iraq went to war
And millions of innocent Muslims died
for 10 years Muslims killing Muslims
Over what?! What else!
The Agenda of the west!

at the end there were no resolution
Today Iran is very much open to democracy and reformation
and the Muslims in Iraq continue to suffer

where is the Amir of the Ummah?!

Another decade gone
But we still don't have Islam
Take a look at the gulf
And the killings of Saddam
Over million Muslims died
But no one answered their cries

In the 1990's
The Muslim genocide

Bring back Islam!
Bring back Islam!
Bring back Islam!
Bring back Islam!

It's the year 2000
And nothing has changed
Past generations has aged
Let us write the next page
It's time for us to change

It's up to you & me
Either we make history
or we become history
