The statement from Rewa and Cakaudrove Chiefs that has Fiji media running in circles

"We advise therefore that rather than removing the entrenched provision from the constitution, terminating the GCC and passing other laws and policies to terminate or compromise our group rights and to thereby nationalize our companies and institutions, those individuals that disagree with native Fijian group rights should simply declare their choice, cut off their connection with their native groups and delete their names from their VKB."

Chief of Rewa: Ro Teimumu Kepa

1. Introduction
We issue this statement in response to the Constitution that is
Caukdrove chief (middle) Naiqama Lalabalavu
now passed by the Interim Military Government (IMG). We do so with the mandate we have, as the customary heads of Fiji’s Tribal Confederacies or the Vanua, whose population constitute over 57% of this country and whose members continue to live and organize themselves under their customary institutions within their tribes, their Vanua, Yavusa, Villages, Mataqalis, Tokatokas and Family Units.

We select this day 10th October 2013 to release this statement in response to the Constitution of the IMG because this day is significant. Today is Fiji Day. It is the 10th of October.

It was on this very same day in 1874 that our ancestors and our Chiefs signed the Deed of Cession, to cede this country to the British Crown in exchange for the Crowns promise, contained under clause 4 and clause 7 of that Deed, to protect their land rights and their way of life under their customary Institutions and Chiefly system.

The essence of clause 4 and clause 7, in addition to being transmitted to the domestic laws of this country, initially under the Native Affairs Ordinance of 1876 which is currently maintained under the Fijian Affairs Act, the Native Lands Ordinance of 1882 which is currently maintained under the Native Lands Act of 1905 and the Native Lands Trust Act of 1940, have been entrenched in every previous Constitution of this country until removed by the IMG in its Constitution of 6th September 2013.

It was always so as the Crown and successive government after that were obliged, because of Clause 4 and Clause 7, to respect our land rights, our custom, our tradition and our chiefly institutions in exchange for our chiefs giving up the sovereign authority of this land.

And now it is apparent the IMG has seen it fit to deny us that respect by removing those entrenched provisions from its Constitution. It is a wanton act and the highest form of disrespect and it did so with a very clear motive and intent.

2. The IMG Constitution
We have examined this IMG Constitution for what it is and what it intends to achieve. It confirms all that we have anticipated and feared and therefore it must be objectively described for what it is.

We say to the public and to the international community that this constitution does not carry the mandate of the will of the people of Fiji, as a constitution should. The original and properly consulted version, known as the Yash Gai Draft, was burnt and its content edited in isolation before being taken about to the public.

Like the “Peoples Charter” that has gone before it, this edited version was taken around the public under a well orchestrated and controlled media to create the impression to the international community that the Public has been widely consulted and has consented to it , when in truth it has not done so.

This constitution, in all objectivity, is designed to keep the perpetrators of the 2006 coup and their advisers from accounting for their unlawful actions in removing a democratically elected government. We caution that, however hard they may try and whatever way they may wish to do so, even using the provision of a constitution such as this, the will of the people and the Court of Appeal decision in Qarase v Bainimarama of 2009 will still have their final say on them. It is because they carry the essence of mandate and judicial authority. For those are caveats which we cannot avoid or bypass.

It is the reason also why we have maintained all along that the perpetrators of the 2006 coup will do well to go before the chiefs and the people of Fiji for remorse rather than to rely on the provisions of this constitution to exonerate them. They choose a different path and history will judge them.

The essence of a Democracy is representative government, clear separation of power, independent constitutional positions, accountability, transparency and the protection of the rights of citizens. These are the necessary elements that a constitution must have, and those factors must be properly set about, to ensure the outcome of a true Democracy. We say that this constitution is plainly lacking in these factors. There are experts who have already given their views, and continue to do so, on those short comings but we limit our comments here on its failure to protect the group rights of indigenous Fijians.

3. Group Rights
The essence of Group Rights is identity, manifested in the uniqueness of the way of life of a group; in our case the indigenous people or native inhabitants of this country, Fiji. It refers to our language, our custom, and our tradition, our customary institutions, our traditional knowledge or the totality of our culture and our cultural way of living entrenched in the customary ownership of land that give it meaning. It refers to the need to safe guard and protect them to maintain our identity as a group. These measures are now recognized and protected under the International Labor Organization (ILO) Convention 169 that Fiji ratified in 1998 and the 2007 UN Declaration on Indigenous Rights.

We know as a fact that from as early as 2006, when the IMG took power by force, it had moved about purposely to remove all semblance of our group rights and dismantle institutions that manifest them. The IMG argued that it was a necessary measure to bring about equality or “equal citizenry” as the IMG calls it. Its purpose was all too clear in its policy announcements, laws passed and even in its submission to the 81st session of UN committee for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) in August 2012 where it argued that customary institutions like the GCC, are a source of discrimination, that must be dismantled.

Needless to say the CERD warned the IMG that it was wrong to do so and that it may be committing an act of discrimination by doing so. The CERD also cautioned the IMG that, contrary to what it is doing, it must recognize indigenous rights for native Fijians in the same way that it recognize individual rights and the group rights of others and the challenge is for IMG to make sure that none topples the other.

The CERD even went further to conclude that the IMG, by its action, maybe in breach breach of ILO C169 and the permanent and inalienable rights of native Fijians.

The contents of this constitution confirms beyond doubt that the IMGs program to remove indigenous rights and dismantle customary institution that began in earnest in 2006 is now consolidated and perpetuated further by this document.

In case it is not clear to anyone, we outline again the details of policies and laws passed by the IMG since 2006 to either remove, dismantle, or compromise our group rights and to nationalize and take control of customary institutions that belong to us. We do this because at various times either at village level, or Tikina level or provincial level or when confronted by the Vanua on these questions the reply by the IMG has been either a denial or silence or reference to the Bill of Rights which address individual rights and not Group Rights.

4. Policies Implemented By The IMG In Breach Of Our Group Rights.
The following are some policies that have been implemented by the IMG since 2006 that are in breach of our group rights that are recognized under ILO C169 and the 2007 UN Declaration on Indigenous Rights directly or because they are made either to dismantle our customary institutions, to compromise the independence of native institutions or made without obtaining our prior and informed consent:

1. The announcement in 2007 that the Great Council of Chiefs is to be suspended indefinitely.

2. The continuing effort by the IMG to remove and replace individuals and chiefs, who oppose its policies, from the customary institutions established by law including, Provincial Councils, Fijian(iTaukei) Affairs Board, Native(iTaukei) Land Trust Board and Fijian (iTaukei) Trust Fund.

3. The Nationalisation and assumption of control over native Fijians semi autonomous native government ( Matanitu Taukei ) administered under the Fijian (iTaukei) Affairs Act.

4. The Nationalisation, and assumption of control over all companies established under Fiji's Semi autonomous Native Government (matanitu iTaukei) including all provincial companies and Fijian Holdings Limited.

5. The appointment of government sympathisers to man the semi autonomous native government (matanitu iTaukei) and Native Land Trust Board, the Government agency that administers native land to maintain control.

5. Laws passed by the IMG In Breach Of Our Group Rights
The following are some of the laws that have been passed by the IMG since 2006 that are in breach of our group rights recognized under ILO C169 and the 2007 UN Declaration on Indigenous Rights directly or because they are made either to dismantle our customary institutions, to compromise the independence of native institutions or made without obtaining our prior and informed consent:

1. Fijian Trust Fund (Amendment) (No. 2) Decree 2009 to remove the authority of the chiefs from appointing members to the Fijian Trust Board and substituting it with the government.

2. Native Land Trust Act (Amendment)(No. 31) Decree 2009 to amend Section three(3) of that Act to remove the appointing authority of the chiefs to the Native Land Trust Board and its replacement by the government.

3. Fijian Affairs (Amendment) (No. 31) Decree 2010 to terminate reference to indigenous Fijian’s as Fijian’s, to be replaced by the label iTaukei and application of the label Fijian to all citizens of Fiji.

4. Native land Trust (Amendment) (No. 32) Decree 2010 to amend Section 3 of that Act to vest control of that institution on the minister replacing the President as representative of the chiefs and customary landowners and removing chiefly representation to the board replacing if with the IMG as sole appointing authority.

5. iTaukei Affairs (Amendment)(No. 22) Decree 2012 to amend part 2 of that Act to remove and terminate the existence of the Great Council of Chiefs.

6. iTaukei Land Trust (Amendment) (No. 20) Decree 2012 to amend S19 A of that Act to remove the Great Council of Chiefs as authority to determine customary ownership and its replacement with IMG.

7. iTaukei Lands(Amendment)(No. 21) Decree 2012 to amend S19 of that act to remove the Great Council of Chiefs as authority to determine customary ownership and its replacement IMG.

8. iTaukei Trust Fund (Amendment)(No. 23) Decree 2012 to amend the long title of the Act to remove any reference to the Great Council of Chiefs and need to provide for its financial autonomy.

9. September 6th Constitution. The previous constitutions of Fiji including in 1997 constitution and the 1970 constitution all contained within it entrenched provision to protect Native Fijian Land Right And Right of Limited Autonomy with the Great Council of Chiefs as its head. Those entrenched provisions are now removed in the IMG’s 6th September constitution.

6. Need To Protect Our Group Rights
The entrenched provisions of previous constitutions, on our land rights and customary institutions including recognition of the Great council of Chiefs were put there to manifest the government’s treaty obligation to our ancestors and to our chiefs in exchange for our ancestors and chiefs surrendering the sovereign authority of these lands. We humbly request and call upon the IMG to respect and restore this as the UN Special Rappatuer on indigenous people, Professor Anaya, has called upon countries to respect their treaty obligations to their indigenous peoples.

We request, as we call upon the IMG to respect our group rights by restoration of the Great Council of Chiefs (GCC) as well as policies and laws that have been passed since 2006 that are in breach of the rights recognized for us under the ILO C169 that Fiji Ratified in 1998 and under the 2007 UN Declaration on the Right of Indigenous Peoples.

The Group Rights of Indigenous Fijians is not the concern only of the indigenous population of Fiji. It is the concern of all right thinking Fiji citizens who proudly share in the ownership of its unique identity.

We say here with unreserved authority that we will continue to do all we can, within the bounds of what we can do within the laws of this county to campaign for the recognition of our group rights notwithstanding the removal of the entrenched provision from this Constitution, nor the termination of the GCC by Decree, nor the removal of our name by Decree, nor the many laws and policies that have been passed to terminate and compromise those rights and nationalize our native companies and institutions.

It is because we are sincere in our belief that our group rights are real, objective, legal and inalienable.

It is the reason also why we want to demand those who do not agree with them to leave us and our rights alone. Our mentor the late Ratu Sir Lala Sukuna had reminded us many times over that we acquire them by descent and practice. But we have the choice always to opt to leave them simply by cutting off connections with your native group, by moving elsewhere and deleting your names from your respective VKB (register) of Mataqalis, Yavusas and tribes.

We advise therefore that rather than removing the entrenched provision from the constitution, terminating the GCC and passing other laws and policies to terminate or compromise our group rights and to thereby nationalize our companies and institutions, those individuals that disagree with native Fijian group rights should simply declare their choice, cut off their connection with their native groups and delete their names from their VKB.

What a load of racist (oh sorry 'group rights")garbage
The so called democracy crusaders exercise their "god given" authority over their people.
This is barbarous ideology that may have been relevant in the old cannibalistic times.
the idea that a native iTaukei should renounce their VKB rights just because we hold a different opinion to our "god installed" chiefs is total nonsence
Who gave us the name Fijians, this was given by the kaivalangi, this was given to represent the people of Fiji. Our indian brothers had not arrived in Fiji at that time. Fijian is not a native term.
I hope someone at this one sided blog site has the courage to also publish opposing views such as this one

Who the fuck gave teimumu and lalabalavu the right to decide who can be in vola ni kawa bula and who cannot? Who gave them right define fijianess? I came to this born born a fijian so who the fuck are these two tryng to take away my birthright? you are not my chief anyway. This is chiefly arrogance of the highest order. Two chiefs thinking they are god. Why should I listen to two adulteress people? Why don't they remove their names from vola ni kawa bula for un-chiefly like behaviour? Lalabalavu for seducing a younger girl and making her pregnant and temumu for seducing a younger married man. This is shameful and unchiefly and unchristian behaviour. so you two remove your names now from vola ni kawa bula. you are a disgrace. I do not recognise you because of you unchiefly behaviour. that does not mean I am not fijian. you can't take that away from me. i was born that way. get it?

Ratu Naiqama and Ro Teimumu speak for all of us Fijians registered in the VKB Register.

Thank you to the two high Chiefs.

You have vocalised our demands and we will not agree to anything less. We stand ready to fight for our rights.

Special thanks to you Anon 24 Oct at 11.14 AM, the British Army soldier for your loyal support to our chiefs and people in adding to our demand to maintain our race, identity, culture, traditions and land.

Our demands do not mean we are against other races in Fiji having rights in Fiji as citizens. No, because without the other races with us together Fiji would not have achieved all that we had enjoyed before 2006.

Future Fiji is for all of us to live in, enjoy, call home and be free to pursue your dreams.

Our problems lie in the racial divisions that exist which had been exploited by some scrupulous people for personal gains.

We should learn to live together harmoniously, based on respect, love and accepting each other as fellow Fiji citizens, brothers and sisters with citizenship rights.

But Fijians as anywhere else in the world have a special place in Fiji and it is our challenge to resolve any conflicts that communal rights may throw up..if there is a problem there must be an acceptable solution found by listening to each other, by give and take and respect for each other.

@anonynous 11.55 am

As far some of us taukei Fijians are concerned, they represent what the majority of Fijians are simmering about behind the scenes for fear of victimisation by this corrupt and indictive dictatorship of the IMG. Despite some of us trying to get on with our lives or earning our honest keep to survive, we have suffered too much one way or another and that is through our families, friends and relatives, and not the least we are all suffering the economic pain. Extreme as the views of Naiqama and Teimumu maybe, we subscribe to them because IMG has created this general feeling amongst us. The analougy is simple. We can't call a person of Indian origin living in China a chinese nor vice-versa. They'd kill for it. These countries like ours have had their indigenous habitants take on the adopted names of their countries as the apt and common description of their ethnicity. Only anglo-dominated colonial countries took on their countries' adopted names as the common description of their citizens. Rt Naiqama and Teimumu are neither my chiefs, but i salute them and i will defend their right to speak their views on what they think hurts the "real Fijian" conscience more.


This two chiefs should stay away from politicing this issue and stay in their villages, learn to work hard and teach the younger generation the value of accepting and loving people from all nations, kindred, tongue and people.

A citizen of Fiji, indigenous or otherwise should be known as a Fijian..it is a no-brainer
A Fijian is one that protects the nation rather than his/her own interests..these two Chiefs failed big-time
They should pluck out the plank of racism from their eyes..Fijians have had enough!

It is comical to read these statements about these 2 chiefs commenting about democratic rights, which fit definition of an Oxymoron.

I don't trust over horny chiefs who can't control the thing in their pants and betray their partners. As someone said, it is unchristian. These two looking after their own interests and try to grad us all in. Both of these chiefs have tried this before. It is called exploiting their people to regain the lost power and the paisa!

a rose by any other name is still a rose, so why do Indians want to hide from their true ethnic identity. It seems to be a hangup with them to be identified with their forefathers in India. Like Ah Koi who is trying to hide from his Chinese father. Perhaps it is the reflection of the gods they serve.

If you rav your blocked mind abit bit, you will feel proud that you have got the deserved identity of being called a race in your own language. Or r u so pleased with the English that you want to be referred to by an English terminlogy. Go figure. Put some coconut oil in your brain to remove the grease clogging it

Guys, keep the hatred up and no Indo Fijian will want to live in Fiji anyway. A strategy Rabuka and Qarase used very effectively. Opposition to the military government was never about democracy. Its all about bringing back nationalists and racists back in power. Even though Bainimara was wrong with the coup, he will win the election because the alternative is supporting nationalists. No progressive Fijian will support them.

What a sad day for Fiji when traditional leaders speak of democracy and "harpoon" its very foundation by stating, "those individuals that disagree with native Fijian group rights should simply declare their choice, cut off their connection with their native groups and delete their names from their VKB" with the same breathe. I am from Burebasaga and whilst I have my obligation to respect the Roko Tui Dreketi under traditional mechanism; that's where it ends. She certainly does not have my support when it comes to political choice nor have I given her the mandate to speak on my behalf politically. One of the reasons why political instability has dogged our beloved country is the fact that chiefs utilise their traditional status for political gain. Politicking should be kept separate from traditional systems and its practises. If chiefs opt to partake in the political arena then they should be treated just like any other politician and should not use their traditional status as a launching pad to sway their subjects (especially those that are politically naive).

Ro Kepa is obviously a threat to the regime because they keep trying to smear her name with all of their filthy stories.

Typical a woman getting attacked when Auckland mayor Len Brown has dipped his wick in waters outside of his marriage and some people think it's okay he doesn't have to stand down.

Fiji's paramount chiefs speak true.

Of course, the dictator's lackeys and symps will criticize the chiefs as undemocratic. This is true, but although the chiefs belong to an undemocratic institution, they're standing up for democratic principles such as self-determination and rule of law. Representative democracies are replete with undemocratic institutions that serve useful roles as checks against transient popular opinion, such as supreme courts and upper legislative chambers. The least democratic institution of all is the military, so why are these same critics not railing against the fact that Fiji is being ruled undemocratically by a military dictatorship?

Also, no surprise that the critics resort to ad hominem attacks against the moral character of the chiefs. What else do you do when you're unable to defend against someone's arguments, except assail their character? As if the unelected regime they defend is so moral! Hearty har-har!

These critics, understand, are mostly over-the-hill, carpetbagging faux-journalists who are now prostituting themselves or traitorous RFMF psyops types paid to stir up racial antagonism in order to justify the illegal regime's continued rule.

Bainimarama's opposition to the chiefs doesn't rest on any philosophical or ideological basis. It stems from the knowledge that th chiefs are best positioned to challenge his unlawful power, full stop.

The time for amnesty for Bainimarama and other traitors passed in September 2012. Time now for the chiefs to declare the terms of the Deed of Cession to have been breached by this illegal government and to exercise their right, therefore, to take back Fiji, for the purpose of reestablishing a lawful and representative government.

The chiefs have spoken true. Now it is time for them to march and for all of us to join them.

We don't need a massive gathering filling Albert Park. Start somewhere else, with a lightning protest at one end of town. Then quickly disperse and reform in another location, maybe in another town. Do this every few days, following no set pattern. It is time the chiefs led such actions in order to set the stage, not for revolution, but for restoration.

Can these Chiefs accept the fact that they are history now- they will be remembered in history classes in primary school.
The chiefs have done nothing for the ordinary ituakies- if anything they kept on getting richer whilst the commoners cried.

It is a insult to call an indian a Fijian. The word Fijian refers to those who lost everything to Britain, are not intelligent and suck up to chiefs who are uneducated, backwards, and cruel to ordinary Fijian.
I am an indian and proud to be so. We have a civilisation of over 5000 years, unlike Fijians which only came in only 50 years ago, and that too with Indians teaching them this.

I do not want to be called a Fijian. It is insulting.

Naiqama paedophile fuckwit who made 15 year old pregnant. Your father was a NFP senator when chiefs from Lau, Rewa and Bau did not consider your family equal.

You will be always a moron who should have stayed a Methodist. You bring shame to Catholic church and your honourable ancestors.

don't need a chief who is a child molester.


We've lost hope in all Chiefs..the little unkonwn ones and the big lazy ones! There are so many of them that it is difficult to decide who is genuine. They should just be treated as ordinary citizens, because they are more useful that way!

Anti-disestablishmentarianism! Defer indefinitely all illegal actions, such as dissolution of the GCC, until constitutional government is restored.

Time for the true chiefs to reveal themselves and prove their worth by kicking out the traitors and usurpers in Suva.

Don't be fooled. Not all, but many of the race-baiting comments on this website are posted by regime operatives for the purpose of incitement, in order to justify Frank's continued reign.

Kai idia should be at the forefront of any march to restore constitutional government and the rule of law, as these are the best guarantors of minority rights.

Kubuna not with 2 chiefs said...

October 26, 2013 | Fiji Sun |

The Kubuna Confederacy is not part of the statement by the Tui Cakau, Ratu Naiqama Lalabalavu, and Marama na Roko Tui Dreketi, Ro Teimumu Kepa, posted on an anti-government blog. The two chiefs are considered as the traditional heads of the Tovata Confederacy and the Burebasaga Confederacy respectively.
Speaking to the Fiji Sun the Turaga Tunitoga and spokesperson for the Cakobau family, Ratu Veiwili Komaitai, said the two chiefs had no right to speak on behalf of the people of Kubuna.
“If anyone speaks for the Kubuna confederacy, it will be the Turaga na Vunivalu from the chiefly island of Bau,” Ratu Veiwili said. “The whole nation knows that the chiefly position of the Turaga na Vunivalu is still vacant.”
The two contenders of the Vunivalu title are Ratu Joji Cakobau and Ratu Epenisa Cakobau.

80% of Australian I-Taukei are not doing too well or are hiding as illegals. It is funny when they need help, it is Indo-Fijians who are there for them. Their fellow I-Tuakei are either too busy struggling or back stabbing each other. The white Australians don't want to know them.

I suggest some of you bloggers grow up and face reality instead of blindly following your chiefs and wasting your time writing rubbish out of hatred.

Election has to be done , a new civilian government will be formed and the 2013 constitution will be changed by the court as legal challange wiil be made and the 1997 constitution will be brought back and the legal process will be undertaken for the law to take its course against the perpatrators of the 2006 coup.

You dont earn respect by your status, you earn them by your deeds. atleast thats wht i was taught. Bainimarama and Khaiyum may clearly be on the wrong. but if it takes making wrong moves to correct the wrong, then why bother fighting against it. This bold move is FOR the people. Tell me, where was the government when people living in rural areas continuously asked for electricity and water? all these years. Rt Mara was in leadership for over twenty years. It only took Bainimarama less then ten years to accomplish what should have been done!! That is bold. This is respect. this is love. you show it. Comments like "you indians should just fuck off.." well, honestly if it werent for them, Fiji would not be where they are today. You can even see that in the so called puppetry IMG. They're very clever people. And i for one am lucky to be in a multiracial nation, in a nation where hardwork is honored. itaukei are generally lazy people. and they're only a handful of people that are willing to do the deed. people like bainimarama. If itaukei had sole ownership over fiji, politically and in whatever aspect, we would be just like Tonga, or samoa, one way streets and old wooden shops.

Like any other "democratic" government everybody is entitled to their own opinion for it is their right. We are all in MY OPINION falling to the trap of propoganda or divide and conquer to put it in a subtle way.

I was born a FIJIAN and I will die a FIJIAN irrespective of my religion, heritage, or colour. Reading these comments in my view is rather upsetting and not FIJIAN like. We are too busy blaming each other about certain entitlements yet we can't even effectively try and influence with good intentions the current FIJI we live in.

Theses two paramount chiefs have the right to voice their opinions openly as they have done so. I commend them for having the courage to openly speak their view openly while we all play "keyboard warriors" and hide behind our anonymity on this blog.

We live in the 21st century yet we are too busy blaming each other as to who is a Fijian and who is not. The fact of the matter is that we are ALL FIJIANS. What separates the Taukei from the rest is their God given right to their Native land rights enshrined in the NLTB via the Vola ni kawa bula (VKB).

So lets all respect each others rights as free men and women to openly voice opinions on such forums as this. If we are so pationate about DEMOCRACY why not openly state it as these two chiefs? If we are so pationate about what LABEL we should respond to than why not VOICE it openly like these two chiefs?

Lets face it our country needs our help and by the sounds of the budget for 2014 it sounds promising but my concern is where are we getting the money from? Where are our goverment audits like the yester years like when Rabuka, Mahen, and Qarase's years as well as those before? Why is our media censored daily? Where is the FIJI of old where by we had transparency at least in some aspects. Certain people are taking advantage of our resources and yet we don't talk about it. Our country gets robbed and we accept it. People come and go as consultants and our country suffers. When are we going to wake up and see the bigger picture instead of walking around with "eyes wide shut?"

Also, we should not speak about what people do in their private lives. That in MY OPINION is a sign of weakness as you are too busy playing CID to even have a look at your own self first. Hey we are humans, we all make mistakes. I myself am not perfect and openly admit it. So before we talk about someone's life choices ask yourself how would you feel if someone accused you of certain things? In MY OPINION we should not judge others but our own actions first.

However, the biggest irony about these two chiefs speaking up publicly is that we FIJIANS have forgotten about our right to practice free speech in our own country. We are now so used to the norm and too busy fighting our own brothers and sisters that we have forgotten our basic rights.

I hope for a better tomorrow for my children and grandchildren in a Fiji not torn by race, creed, colour or label. But in a Fiji where everything is transparent, without motives, for the betterment of our country and our people.

It's entitled "Son of Hamas", by Mosab Hassan Yousef ("Joseph"), a story of a young man who experienced so much and so early on in his life, as the loaded title of the book would indicates.. and then transformed himself (as only one who's been touched by God's grace could) from a radical jihadist as a "Son of Hamas" to embracing Christianity - in the fullness and completeness of our beautiful faith and her compelling message of LOVE - the essence of all other commandments from the OT and NT combined.

This young man grasped the TIMELESS TRUTHS as that only could be taught and shown by Jesus, as our Messiah who is The Way, The Truth and The Life.

How I am so moved each time I read His teachings in the Holy Gospels in the Sacred Scriptures just as "Joseph" did - describing Jesus' teachings as of "a very high standard" - one that cuts across all boundaries, transcending all barriers that societies and cultures would routinely put up.

This exceptional young man, Mosab Hassan Yousef (Joseph) life's story is as breathtaking as it is moving. He is a kindred spirit. And brought to my mind this beautiful, profound quote:

"The measure of love is to love without measure" ~ St. Francis de Sales.

Oops, pls excuse the obvious typo errors above.

Still on the inspiring transformation (God works in mysterious ways indeed!) of Mosab Hassan Yousef ("Joseph") - a name that I shall remember for a very long time, drew to mind two very beautiful scheduled old biblical readings of this week (if one had attended our Holy Mass on Tues 12th and Thurs 14th), they're from the Book of Wisdom (OT) which I happily share with y'all here:

"For within her is a spirit intelligent, holy, unique, manifold, subtle, mobile, incisive, unsullied, lucid, invulnerable, benevolent, shrewd,
irresistible, beneficent, friendly to human beings, steadfast, dependable, unperturbed, almighty, all-surveying, penetrating all intelligent, pure and most subtle spirits.

For Wisdom is quicker to move than any motion; she is so pure, she pervades and permeates all things.

She is a breath of the power of God, pure emanation of the glory of the Almighty; so nothing impure can find its way into her.

For she is a reflection of the eternal light, untarnished mirror of God's active power, and image of his goodness.

Although she is alone, she can do everything; herself unchanging, she renews the world, and, generation after generation, passing into holy souls, she makes them into God's friends and prophets; for God loves only those who dwell with Wisdom.

She is indeed more splendid than the sun, she outshines all the constellations; compared with light, she takes first place, for light must yield to night, but against Wisdom evil cannot prevail.

Strongly she reaches from one end of the world to the other and she governs the whole world for its good." ~ Wisdom 7:22-20, 8:1


"For God created human beings to be immortal, he made them as an image of his own nature;

Death came into the world only through the Devil's envy, as those who belong to him find to their cost.

But the souls of the upright are in the hands of God, and no torment can touch them.

To the unenlightened, they appeared to die, their departure was regarded as disaster,
their leaving us like annihilation; but they are at peace.

If, as it seemed to us, they suffered punishment, their hope was rich with immortality;
slight was their correction, great will their blessings be.

God was putting them to the test and has proved them worthy to be with him; he has tested them like gold in a furnace, and accepted them as a perfect burnt offering.

At their time of visitation, they will shine out; as sparks run through the stubble, so will they.

They will judge nations, rule over peoples, and the Lord will be their king for ever.

Those who trust in him will understand the truth, those who are faithful will live with him in love; for grace and mercy await his holy ones, and he intervenes on behalf of his chosen."
~ Wisdom 2:22-24, 3:1-9

May God Bless Fiji.
