Sekitar ulang tahunku tahun 2011 ini ada beberapa kegiatan presiden Obama yang perlu dicatat.

Tepat pada hari ulang tahunku, 17 Mei 2011, presiden Obama menerima kunjungan King Abdullah dari Yordania di White House membicarakan upaya perdamaian Israel dan Palestina. Mungkin kamu juga sudah tahu, 15 Mei 1948 merupakan hari kemerdekaan Israel. Dan salah satu dokumen penting menuju pembentukan negara Israel adalah surat dari mantan PM Inggris Arthur James Balfour yang saat itu sedang menjabat sebagai Menteri Luarnegeri, kepada Lord Rothschild ketua kelompok Yahudi di Inggris pada 2 Nopember 1917, surat yang kemudian dikenal sebagai “Balfour Declaration“. Dan namaku adalah Firman yang dalam bahasa Jerman atau Belanda “fir” itu berarti “empat” atau dalam bahasa Inggris “four”, sehingga seperti terkait dengan “Balfour Declaration“.

Kemudian pada 19 Mei 2011 dalam pidato mengenai kebijakan AS dalam soal Timur Tengah dan Afrika Utara pada Departemen Luar Negeri di Washington, ada kalimat yang kemudian menimbulkan reaksi dari kedua pihak yaitu Israel dan Palestina.

Kalimat itu adalah “………….the borders of Israel and Palestine should be based on the 1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps……..” . Entah karena dua hari sebelum itu pada ulang tahunku presiden Obama menerima kunjungan King Abdullah dari Yordania di White House atau bagaimana, maka kemudian reaksi dari pihak Palestina adalah seperti ada angin baru dari pihak AS. Sebab memang soal perbatasan merupakan soal yang selama ini menjadi ganjalan perdamaian.

Setelah itu tanggal 20 Mei 2011 presiden Obama menerima kunjungan PM Israel Benjamin Netanyahu. Kemudian pada 22 Mei 2011 saat pidato di konperensi AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) presiden Obama memberi penjelasan mengenai soal ini. Yaitu bahwa kata-kata “1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps” penting diperhatikan dalam kalimat itu. “……….since my position has been misrepresented several times, let me reaffirm what “1967 lines with mutually agreed swaps” means. By definition, it means that the parties themselves -– Israelis and Palestinians -– will negotiate a border that is different than the one that existed on June 4, 1967 ………”

Sebagaimana diketahui, pada tahun 1967 terjadi perang enam hari yang diprakarsai oleh Israel melalui operasi militer pada 5 Juni 1967, dan setelah perang itu maka garis batas Israel menjadi berbeda. Seusai perang enam hari tahun 1967 itu, Israel menduduki beberapa wilayah strategis dan penting untuk pertahanan Israel yaitu Jalur Gaza dan Semenanjung Sinai yang semula dikuasai Mesir, Tepi Barat dan Jerusalem Timur yang semula dikuasai Yordania, dan Dataran Tinggi Golan yang semula dikuasai Suriah.

Pidato presiden Obama pada 19 Mei 2011 itu menimbulkan kesan bahwa AS mendukung perdamaian dengan syarat Israel kembali ke posisi sebelum perang enam hari tahun 1967. Namun kemudian pada 22 Mei 2011 saat berpidato di depan konperensi AIPAC (American Israel Public Affairs Committee) presiden Obama menambahkan penjelasan bahwa yang dimaksud adalah agar pihak-pihak yang bertikai, Israel dan Palestina, yang harus menegosiasikan batas-batas itu dengan pertukaran yang disepakati bersama,  menegosiasikan batas-batas yang berbeda dari yang ada pada 4 Juni 1967 sebelum perang enam hari itu.

Setelah itu pada 23 Mei 2011 presiden Obama mengawali kunjungan empat hari di Eropa dengan melakukan kunjungan ke Republik Irlandia. Dan itu cuma beberapa hari setelah kunjungan bersejarah Ratu Elizabeth yang merupakan kepala kerajaan Inggris pertama yang mengunjungi Republik Irlandia sejak 100 tahun lalu sebagaimana aku tulis di  “Ulang Tahunku 2011 Dan Ratu Inggris Pertama Kali Berkunjung Ke Rep. Irlandia“.

Kunjungan presiden Obama ke Republik Irlandia antara lain untuk merunut leluhur yang berasal dari Irlandia. Ada foto first lady Michelle Obama mengangkat tangan seperti pada lukisan “Rahma Michelle Pray“, waktu itu angin bertiup dan menyebabkan rambut beliau berantakan saat di bandara Dublin, Irlandia. Rambut first lady Michelle Obama yang berdiri teritup angin itu jadi seperti rambut kelompok penyanyi kembar yang sedang populer di Irlandia, yaitu Jedward.

Nama kelompok penyanyi kembar Jedward itu mengingatkan aku pada nama pak Wardy Bafagih yang jadi supervisorku di American Express tahun 1989. Dan ternyata presiden Obama berserta istri sempat ketemu juga dengan Jedward, sebab Jedward tampil di panggung membawakan lagu hit mereka sebelum pidato presiden Obama di College Green, Dublin, Irlandia. Kepada BBC, Jedward mengatakan: “It’s an honour to perform for the most famous man in the world, after Simon Cowell that is.”  Simon Cowell adalah juri di American Idol yang terkenal pelit memberi angka dan suka kasih komentar negatif kepada kontestan. Terhadap Jedward pun Simon Cowell pernah memberi komentar sebagai kelompok penyanyi yang “tidak terlalu bagus dan menjengkelkan”.

Berlanjut dengan kunjungan presiden Obama ke Inggris 24 Mei 2011. Ada yang menarik saat di Inggris, dalam kunjungan ke Westminster Abey pada waktu mengisi buku tamu, tanggal yang ditulis oleh presiden Obama bukan 24 Mei 2011 tapi 24 Mei 2008. Kalau tahun 2011 ‘kan memuat satu angka nol, sedangkan  tahun 2008 memuat dua angka nol, sehingga seperti terkait suratku “Isyarat Dua ‘He’ Pada Pesan Twitter Kamu“.

Setelah itu pada 26 Mei 2011 meninggalkan Inggris untuk melanjutkan kunjungan empat hari di Eropa.

Sebetulnya surat mengenai kegiatan presiden Obama sekitar ulang tahunku ini sudah mulai aku tulis pada 30 Mei 2011 bersama dua surat lain. Tapi karena aku harus perpanjang KTP tanggal 31 Mei 2011 maka aku tunda dulu kelanjutan surat ini dan pergi ke rumah kakakku di Pondok Bambu, dan karena RW disana cuma buka malam hari jadi akupun harus menginap.

Sejak memulai rancangan surat ini, aku sudah ingin menulis bahwa soal kunjungan King Abdullah dari Yordania ke White House pada ulang tahunku dan pidato presiden Obama soal batas Israel tahun 1967 serta kunjungan PM Israel Benjamin Netanyahu ke White House, seperti terkait dengan soal kita. Mungkin diantara tugas yang akan diberikan kepada kita berdua setelah kita resmi terikat dalam pernikahan adalah terkait inspirasi untuk perdamaian Timur Tengah untuk kebaikan umat manusia.

Sebab kalau sampai manusia terjerumus dalam Perang Dunia 3 yang berujung ke hari Kiamat akibat kedahsyatan senjata-senjata yang ada saat ini, maka akan sangat berpengaruh pada reputasi umat manusia. Kamu tentu sudah tahu juga, bahwa ketika Allah memberi tahu para malaikat mengenai rencana penciptaan manusia, reaksi para malaikat adalah dengan mengatakan bahwa manusia cuma akan menimbulkan kerusakan dan pertumpahan darah di bumi. Dan ketika itu Allah sudah membantah kekhawatiran para malaikat itu.

Maka kalau kemudian kiamat muncul akibat kedahsyatan senjata-senjata pemusnah masal dalam Perang Dunia 3, berarti apa yang dikatakan oleh para malaikat itu akan terbukti. Dan kalau kita tidak berusaha mencegah kiamat akibat Perang Dunia 3 itu, berarti reputasi kita sebagai umat manusia menjadi sangat tidak baik. Sebab kita sudah mendapat info soal percakapan Allah dan para malaikat itu, dan kita sudah tahu bahwa saat ini efek kehancuran akibat senjata-senjata pemusnah masal adalah sangat hebat sehingga dapat menyebabkan kehancuran kehidupan di bumi ini. Beda kalau kiamat itu akibat bencana alam misalkan gempa-gempa bumi besar di beberapa tempat diikuti Tsunami di berbagai tempat dan gunung-gunung meletus bersamaan, juga bencana lain seperti hantaman benda langit berukuran besar, yang semua bukan dimunculkan oleh manusia.

Dan ternyata kemarin kamu memuat pesan di Twitter yang juga memuat soal darah, apakah in berarti kita memang harus segera menikah untuk menjalankan tugas dari Allah untuk kebaikan umat manusia, ……….
