INDONESIA vs MALAYSIA

The latest issue was Malaysia tourism advertisement has use Pendet Dance and Reog dance to attract visitors coming to Malaysia, and shown in Discovery Channel. Oh God, come on...the whole world knows that PENDET DANCE is a welcome dance originally from BALI. And BALI is INDONESIA, but except for those who did not pass the geography lesson who don't know that BALI is INDONESIA.
RAFFLESSIA ARNOLDI, this gigant flower known by the world as the one and only gigant flower species live and grown in Bengkulu, SUMATERA-INDONESIA. Even when I visited Kagoshima Flower Park, Japan, I found that there is a picture of Rafflesia Arnoldi, and it is mentioned clearly that it is from
Indonesia. Then how could Malaysia use it as their tourism campaign material.
I am as Indonesian, I want the whole world knows and think clearly, with the deepest of our heart, which is the truth?. Indonesia or Malaysia. I don't mean to make my writing as a provocation or something, but just googling everything about Batik, Reog dance, wayang, rasa sayange song (Feeling of Love), Rafflesia Arnoldi flower, Rendang food of Padang, and even now Pendet dance, all are Indonesia's culture that was claimed by Malaysia.
Even wikipedia.org said that Malaysia has UNETHICALLY claimed Batik as their original cultures. See, so UNETHICAL.
But God doesn't sleep or blind, God will show the world the truth. Even it may takes long time.
Malaysia said that their country is an Islam country, which use Islam law as their law and use Islam teaching in their life. But what now we have seen is that they steal their neighbor's cultures. Is that an Islamic way to do in life???? Is it the right things to steal somebody else's rights???A
Here I said based on the facts, not just grumbling or saying something bullshit. I just thinks that friendship and cooperation are much more brilliant and great thins to do than war or humiliate or insulting. There's no greatest or worst nations in the world. Each has its own positive and negative points. God creates human in nations and tribes, in different religions and believes. It's not for us to make it as big deal or even become a war, but we should face that differences as something to complete each other.
Be proud of our country and our nations is a must, but it's not supposed to be a CHAUVINISM.
I just want the world to know and say,especially Malaysia who has claimed many of Indonesia's cultures, please respect our cultures. It is our heritage and our soul. Our self esteem, our identity as a nation. We are INDONESIA...
I love you INDONESIA...
