Farda Audience Picks Late Shah’s Son As Iran’s Person Of The Year Friday, March 23, 2012 – By RFE/RL

U.S. – Iran’s former Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi, leading advocate for the campaign of “civil disobedience against the clerical regime,” at a press conference in Washington, DC, 22Jun2009

RFE/RL Radio Farda’s audience has chosen exiled Crown Prince Reza Pahlavi, the eldest son of the late deposed Shah of Iran, as the most important and most influential person of the Iranian year.

The selection is the result of an online poll that was timed to coincide with the Persian New Year and included thousands of respondents.

The 51-year-old Pahlavi has called for the prosecution of Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on charges of crimes against humanity. He has also said he wants to unite diverse Iranian opposition groups and forces to eliminate the regime in Tehran.

Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, who was awarded an Oscar for best foreign-language film, finished second by just a few votes.

In February, Farhadi became the first Iranian filmmaker to win the prestigious Academy Award for his movie, “A Separation.” He dedicated his award to the Iranian people, whom he described as peace-loving.

His success sparked jubilation among Iranians, but the Iranian government canceled a ceremony that was due to be held in his honor in Tehran, without explanation.

The number three newsmaker of the year, according to those who voted in Radio Farda’s poll, are Iran’s political prisoners. Human rights activists believes several hundred Iranians are jailed in the country over their political activism and dissenting views.

Pahlavi received around 33 percent (4,028 votes) of the vote, while Farhadi followed with 31 percent (3,717 votes) and Iran’s political prisoners received nearly 10 percent of the vote (1,198 votes).

The poll was conducted online on Radio Farda’s website and its Facebook page. Some took part in the poll by sending e-mails and text messages to Radio Farda. In total, Radio Farda received 12,024 votes from Iranians inside and outside the country.

People were asked to vote on a list of 25 Iranian and international personalities chosen by experts, journalists, and intellectuals as the most influential figures of the Iranian year.

Iranian opposition leader Mir Hossein Musavi, Syrian protesters, jailed human rights lawyer Nasrin Sotoudeh, and dissident writer and filmmaker Mohammad Nourizad were all in the top 10.

The poll was not intended to be representative of the views of the entire Iranian population.

ARTICLE 2

“The poll was not intended to be representative of the views of the entire Iranian population.” – March 22, 2012 16:07 by: Sey from: World

I love this final line. Of course it’s not meant to represent the entire Iranian population, not even 1/3 of it.

The ones who voted on this poll are the Islamophobic expats and their Westernized counterparts in Tehran and other major cities, where the Westernization of Iran between the 1950s and 1970s is missed by the “modern” Iranians.

Things are not so “modern” in the provinces or pretty much anywhere outside Tehran, where religion and traditions still matter. But everybody always takes 8 million Tehranis as the sole representative for the entire 75 million Iranians.

I simply cannot understand those who want the Islamic regime to be replaced by a Western-friendly regime. Have you got not self-respect at all? I’m not protecting the lunatics who rule Iran today, but does your short memory does not allow you to see how the West treated your country as their game zone, how the Shah you love to protect so much was as oppressive and murderous as the mullahs?

With or without the mullahs and the Islamic republic, Iran would be in the same position it is today if it was ruled by a pro-Iranian nationalist regime, like the one of Mossadegh, whom by the way the West overthrew in most probably the first Iraq-like intervention in history. The West does not like countries that stand up to it and say “No, thank you”. They want silent and condescending slaves upon which they can rule.

Is that what you want for Iran?

ARTICLE 3

A number of observers have written of rumours and allegations that the government of the United Kingdom has secretly supported “mullahs” (Shia clerics) in recent Iranian history, and in particular the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini in his successful overthrow of Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi in the Iranian Revolution of 1979. However, Khomeini rejected the charges.[1]

Beliefs of Iranian public,  Nishan Sahib, flag of the Sikhs – “Stylized Allah” used in Iranian flag

BBC Persian journalist Hossein Shahidi has talked about “the deep-rooted belief” among Iranians “that Britain is behind every move in Iran,” and in particular that the BBC radio is “credited with, or accused of, having brought about the downfall of” both Pahlavi kings, Mohammad Reza Shah and his son Mohammad Reza Pahlavi whose thirty-seven-year rule was brought to an end by the Iranian Revolution of 1978-79.[2]

A survey of Iranian expatriates in Southern California found the leading explanation for the 1979 revolution to be foreign plots,[3] as did a recent survey in Isfahan.[4] It has been suggested by some Iranian observers (living outside Iran) that Iranians hostile to the revolution appear to feel more comfortable blaming outside forces than their own compatriots.[5]

A sinister connection between British India, the Iranian flag created after Iranian Islamic revolution, and Khomeini’s ancestry, has been put forth by some secular Iranians (generally expatriates) who opposed the revolution, according to Iranian author Hooman Majd. Khomeini’s paternal grandfather was an Indian who immigrated to Iran (to the town of Khomeini) in the early nineteenth century when India was a British colony. The stylized `Allah` (الله) on the post-Revolutionary Iranian flag, bears (according to the conspiracy theorists) “a remarkable similarity to the symbol of the Sikhs,” who’s historic homeland is the Indian province of Punjab. Majd himself is unconvinced by the resemblance, seeing the issue instead as reflective of “my compatriot’s love of and insatiable appetite for conspiracy theories.” [6] Khomeini has also been accused of having had a British father. According to an article in Persian Journal mentioned in Forbes.com and elsewhere, Khomeini may have been the son of British adventurer William Richard Williamson, a convert to Islam known to Arab Muslims as Haji Abdullah al-Zobair.[7][8]

According to a book by F. William Engdahl, A Century of War: Anglo-American Oil Politics and the New World Order, a conspiracy to overthrow the Shah was hatched by the British and Americans in 1978 coinciding with the Iranian Revolution.

When “negotiations … under way between the Shah’s government and British Petroleum for renewal of the 25-year old extraction agreement … collapsed”. According to Engdahl, the end of the agreement meant “Iran appeared on the verge of independence in its oil sales policy for the first time since 1953.” To prevent this independence, Engdahl claims “American ‘security’ advisers to the Shah’s SAVAK secret police implemented a policy of ever more brutal repression” against anti-Shah demonstrators, while American President Carter “cynically began protesting abuses of ‘human rights'” caused by the American advisers policy. The British Petroleum company “reportedly” organized a “capital flight” from Iran,” and so on.[9]
[edit] Claims by Mohammad Reza Pahlavi

Mohammad Reza Pahlavi himself asserted that, “If you lift up Khomeini’s beard, you will find MADE IN ENGLAND written under his chin,” in the later days of his reign as monarch.[10] This statement by Pahlavi was an adaptation of another saying, “If you lift a mullah’s beard, you will find ‘Made in Britain’ stamped on his chin.”[11]
[edit] 1978 Ettela’at article

On 7 January 1978[12], the state news agency Ettela’at also published an article accusing Khomeini of being a British agent and a “mad Indian poet.”[13]

According to the article

These days thoughts turn once again to the colonialism of the black and the red, that is to say, to old and new colonialism.

Black referring to feudal forces and red to communist ones. The two groups allegedly had formed an alliance to sabotage the monarchy’s modernization project. The article went on to say that when this alliance went looking for a clerical mouthpiece two decades ago to dupe the devout.

Ruhollah Khomeini was an appropriate agent for this purpose. It was said that he had spent time in India and was in contact there with institutions of English colonialism, and this is how he become known by the name `Seyyed Hindi`

The article further suggested that Khomeini’s opposition to the shah was prompted and paid for by British oil interests.[14]

Supporters of the Khomeini, outraged by the article, organized violent demonstrations in response, which eventually snowballed into the Iranian Revolution and led to the flight of the Shah about a year later.[15]
[edit] Post-revolution

Engdahl quotes Shah Mohammad Reza Pahlavi as blaming not the British but the Americans for his overthrow.

I did not know it then – perhaps I did not want to know – but it is clear to me now that the Americans wanted me out. Clearly this is what the human rights advocates in the State Department wanted … What was I to make of the Administration’s sudden decision to call former Under Secretary of State George Ball to the White House as an adviser on Iran? … Ball was among those Americans who wanted to abandon me and ultimately my country.[9]

Unrest in Iran Inspires Pro-Democracy Activists in the Arab World – June 27, 2009 by TMO

New America Media, Commentary, NAM Correspondent

NAM Editor’s Note: Arab regimes haven’t publicly criticized or even mentioned what is happening in neighboring Iran, triggering much speculation among Arab bloggers as to why that is. The author of this piece wished to remain anonymous due to safety concerns.

DAMASCUS — Images of bloody protesters and crowds numbering in the hundreds of thousands in the streets of Tehran have been broadcast into living rooms across the Arab world for five consecutive days, enchanting and inspiring pro-democracy activists in a region where pushes for democratic reforms tend to be met with an iron fist.

Meanwhile, Arab regimes have largely remained silent over the contested election. Leaders of Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and Jordan—the major Sunni powers in the region—haven’t mentioned the elections or allegations of fraud. In normal circumstances, this would be strange — these countries are the regional archenemies of President Ahmedinejad’s Iran.

Some say the reason behind their silence lies in their fear of bolstering pro-democracy movements in their own countries. “The unrest in Iran frightens dictators in the region because it makes it harder for them to justify their own absolute authority,” says Syrian blogger Yasir Sadiq. “If they see tyrannies come down around them, they’ll be afraid.”

Whether or not the Iranian elections were “stolen,” Iran is a long way ahead of most Arab countries when it comes to democracy — the country has a functioning electoral system. Saudi Arabia, Jordan, and the Gulf states don’t hold elections, and in Egypt and Syria, “elections” are so tightly controlled that the results are always known in advance.

The state controlled media in authoritarian Arab countries have mostly downplayed the events in Iran. Government controlled newspapers like Al-Thawra in Syria, Iran’s strongest regional ally, have kept Iran off the front pages and run headlines like, “The West needs to stop intervening in Iranian elections,” using age-old claims of conspiracies to deflect attention from actual popular desire for democratic reform.

“Governments all over the Arab world accuse pro-democracy movements of serving the west, or of being tools of the CIA or Mosad (Israeli intelligence),” says Syrian freelance journalist Khaled Al-Khetyari. “They are just trying to manipulate people by using this language because the people in power don’t want their populations to analyze what is actually happening in Iran.”

The Obama administration has been relatively silent on the unrest in Iran. On Wednesday, Hillary Clinton said it was up to Iranians to “resolve this internal protest.”

Al-Khatyari says the U.S. administration’s measured distance is a strategy the U.S. should stick to. “The last American administration latched onto any internal opposition to regimes it didn’t like. This always hurts local movements because it connects them to a country that most people here see as harmful to the region and it justifies repression by our governments.”

Syrian blogger Yasir Sadiq says he is encouraged by the Iranian opposition’s seven-point manifesto being circulated on the internet, which calls for the “Dissolution of all organizations — both secret and public — designed for the oppression of the Iranian people.”

“It’s inspiring to see people in the Middle East call for the end of secret services,” Sadiq says. “Organizations like this have oppressed people in the Arab world so much.”

Sadiq is reticent to believe that what he calls Iran’s pro-democracy “intifada” could be exported to Arab countries any time soon. “It’s difficult to hope for this kind of movement in the Arab world. We have a long way to go, but we hope that eventually, something like that will happen here.”

For now, he says, Arab activists will attempt to learn what they can from their counterparts in Iran. For days, Sadiq has been pegged to Twitter, the social networking tool that has allowed Iranians to organize demonstrations while the Iranian government institutes a near blackout of internet services.

“Arab bloggers’ main interest in what is happening in Iran is in figuring out how Twitter can be used to organize and bring our voices forward in our own countries,” he says.

The government in Syria may eventually try to ban it, like they have with other networking sites like Facebook, but Sadiq says he is not deterred. “The more they ban, the more ways we will find to get around their restrictions.”

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

Hopefully Ahmadinejad is able to digest all of this response to this post. Given the above element of control in the Mullah establishment and link to Orwellian England, and the possibility by the above articles that Ayatollah Khomeni IS indeed a English plant somehow, (see how close the English are to the Saudis in some ways and the selective attacks on certain nations but complete bypass of Sunni nations in general), the autonomy of the Middle East could in fact lie upon Ahmadinejad’s ability to take control of Iran, reinstate the Crown Prince and civil society THEN also not be influenced by NATO and the ‘West’ as well to maintain autonomy while keeping the nation in one piece AND separate in the occult area as well, the greatest danger from a certain clique within UN, influence on behalf of a certain occult group to a degree.

Iran is actually part of the PERSIAN empire which esconced Zoroastrian faith which used Old Persian, but was conquered and converted to Shia Islam AND the Persian language replaced by Arabic language. The autonomy of the unascended Crown Prince Pahlavi must be confirmed, though the linguistic and cultural also religious state of the Persian revival very likely now depends on Ahmadinejad and the general knowledge of the citizentry in who they were before the violent conversions. Granted the old regime had abuses, but Iran as standing now a Theocracy does not look much different. If the proper education is given to those in the region to remember their Persiatic roots, Zoroastrian faith and immensly wealthy Persiatic culture also the Persian language and script, the inevitable freedom of an entirely subsumed people’s faith, language and culture will be effected. Ahmadinejad looks critical in this juncture for the fate of the Middle East. In fact Shia Islam could function alongside the non-theocratic and democratized state as well as per the Article 18 of the UNHCR, giving an opt out option for Iranians who prefer to seek religious refuge in Persia’s original faith of Zoroastrianism instead.

See original Persian script in below link :

http://www.livius.org/arl-arz/aryans/alphabet.html

Is Ahmadinejad able to do all this then cement the entire action with an immediate withdrawal from politics to let a second liner follower take over in an exceptional gesture unseen before in the power mad Middle East? Great events were never possible by men faint of heart, that refused to use the resources at their hands, and by these actions (if Ahmadinejad is able or daring enough to) from an enemy, Iran’s new Persian Empire constitutionally headed by the reinstated Crown Prince (with ceremonial powers and a reasonable stipend determined by the people of Iran hereon) could well be the reset button than Iran needs that could revive civil society in place of theocracy and potentially dominate the Middle East . . . remember Zarathustra and with the lessons learnt after the fall of the Old Shah, may the spirit of the great Persian philosopher guide Ahmadinejad and Persia’s Crown Prince and perhaps new Padishah Emperor . . . by these actions also Ahmadinejad would have firmly made a mark on the history of mankind as the reviver and protector of the True Persia

ARTICLE 1

Things you didn’t suspect – THE CORRIDORS OF POWER – Monday, 19 March 2012 admin-s

There are many unsavory things happening inside PKR that are seldom heard outside the circle of intimates and the next few paragraphs shall attempt to address these issues.

One. PKR is divided into two factions; one that is only reserved for the Malays and the other the non-Malays. Each will hold their “unofficial” council meetings separately before voting en bloc during the official supreme council meetings. The majority of the time the Malay faction wins, as DSAI is the only one holding veto powers but not all the time as this is done to retain some semblance of democracy within the party.

Two. Who did you guys think set Eli Wong up? BN? Think again. Those photos did not materialise from nowhere and that somewhere points to Gombak and Ampang. Don’t believe this? Well, if you have a close friend high up in the DAP, PAS or PKR hierarchy, ask them and they will confirm the truth about it. Why the Hell do you people think Eli wanted to quit politics? It is definitely not because of what everybody thought happened (that BN set her up) but because everybody (who is anybody) knew where the setup originated from. If BN wanted to set her up, Eli would have been be set up right.

Three. No one denies what Azmin Ali wants and that includes DSAI and Wan Azizah. When Azmin was discovered to have set up Zaid Ibrahim with a photo-shopped picture during the last PKR Party Elections, he got off scot-free. No inquiry and no nothing. Likewise, when Azmin’s name was implicated in the illegal sand mining activities in Selangor, no investigations were initiated, merely a statement stating that the “Azmin” in the taped conversation is not the Azmin Ali but some other Azmin who incidentally wields the same political power as this Azmin Ali. Once again no inquiry and no nothing.

Four. Azmin Ali and Zuraida Kamaruddin are a team and that means that no one can touch Zuraida as well as she is “protected” by Azmin Ali. When the RM18,000 collections went unaccounted for in the Pasar Larut Malam @Jelatek incident, the MPAJ did not dare ask for it even though this amount rightfully belongs to them. When illegal structures were permanently erected around Spectrum Shopping Mall in Ampang as part of “Ampang Walk”, once again MPAJ did not dare dismantle them even when these structures did not possess the necessary municipal permits during the construction stage (or even now). Hell, the YDP of MPAJ doesn’t even dare mention it during the council meetings.

Five. Zuraida used former MPAJ councilor Tan Hua Meng (Ketua Zon Lapan) as her proxy to do her dirty work. It was only when the residents of Ampang forced their way to confront DSAI during one of his ceramahs in Kampung Pandan to express their displeasure and to handover a protest note that Tan Hua Meng was dismissed from being a MPAJ councilor. However, what Zuraida wants, Zuraida gets and Tan Hua Meng was reinstated as a MPAJ councilor less than a year later. Tan Hua Meng is now replaced by Fong Teck Keong (current Ketua Zon Lapan) the building contractor nominated by Tan Hua Meng and Zuraida to erect the illegal Ampang Walk. Coincidence? I think not. Well, at least Tan Hua Meng got his get-out-of-jail card and was able to walk away. Not so lucky for Zakaria Rahim, Zuraida’s former proxy before Tan Hua Meng. Got caught manipulating the books for a mere RM5,000.

Six. The PKR party election scam. Two members register rolls. Zero appeal in the event of a tie (party makes the decision then). Photo-shopped picture of Zaid holding an alcoholic drink. No inquiry performed later when allegations of corruption arose. Anyone backing any candidates against Azmin’s and Zuraida’s chosen ones to be ostracized. Hell, who chose DSAI to lead PKR anyway? Self elected?

Seven. When the proposal for a shadow cabinet was mulled over by Pakatan Rakyat, PKR immediately shot it down. Zaid was the sole individual from PKR supporting it and perhaps here lies the foundation for the breakup between Zaid and DSAI. Why go against the formation of a shadow cabinet? One must first consider who from PKR will be selected. Azmin? Zuraida? And what shadow ministries will they occupy? Azmin wanted to be one of the DPMs but that is not possible, as Tok Guru (PAS) and Karpal Singh or Lim Kit Siang (DAP) will occupy these positions. Zuraida wants Wanita and DAP wants it as well and since DSAI will become the shadow PM, both Azmin and Zuraida may end up shadowing minor ministries (quid pro quo), something they do not want happening. Zaid could possibly end up in a higher position than Azmin and the latter isn’t amused. Remember, what Azmin wants, Azmin gets.

Eight. The criteria for selection as a candidate for both state and parliamentary seats are loyalty (not to the party but strictly to either DSAI and/or Azmin). Qualifications do not matter. Corruption-free is not mandatory. Popularity is not a prerequisite. Potential frogs formally from Umno are welcomed. Any existing Member of Parliament and Member of State Assemblies who do not answer “how high” when asked to jump by DSAI or Azmin are to be dropped in the next GE, no matter what the winning majority was in the previous election (except a few untouchables). To be assured as a parliamentary candidate, one must be nationally accepted (Tian Chua, Michael Jeyakumar, Khalid Ibrahim), a son of a very close family friend to DSAI (Loh Gwo Burne), a family member of the self elected so called Ketua Umum PKR (Nurul Izzah Anwar, Wan Azizah) or belonging to DSAI’s inner sanctum (Azmin Ali, Zuraida Kamaruddin, Saifuddin Nasution Ismail, Johari Abdul). Do not be surprised that Rafizi Ramli, Dato’ Dr. Mansor Othman, Shamsul Iskandar, Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad, Khalid Jaafar, Abd Rahman Yusof, Haniza Talha, Fariz Musa, Zakaria Hamid and Ismail Yusop all get to contest parliamentary seats (notice anything weird in that list?) in the next GE.

Nine. The Azmin Ali long-term plan is to usurp the leadership of PKR and to turn it into another quasi-Umno with the sprinkling of Chinese and Indian representation for show. Zuraida’s long-term plan is to take over as the Timbalan, and along the way collect sufficient funds via proxies to have an “enriched” retirement. What she does not suspect is that Rafizi is also having the same thoughts.

Ten. RPK will never come home to Malaysia regardless of who wins the next GE, both DSAI and Azmin will see to that (should Pakatan reach Putrajaya).

Conclusion: The state of affairs in PKR is like shit. Sorry, it is worse than shit because manure can’t hold a candle to it. If one were to be stuck in it and desires to get out, one would have to look way up to the level of shit and hope one is in it instead of being in the lower-than-dung level one is presently in.

The state of PKR is what malaysia will be like if anwar becomes PM.
Azmin has been anwar’s bum boy all along. But nobody knew that he could be sodomising Zuraidah as well.
All is not right in PKR if there is a division between the malays and the nons. We voted for a multiracial entity the last time. If its turning into a south african type divide, we may as well stay home.

I call for parties in sabah and sarawak to field some candidates in the peninsular. the pens(peninsular Malaysian party) are so screwed up and only the east malaysians can save us now.

Aiyah, why you guys so thick? What Parlimen Selangor is trying to say is that all the trouble in PKR comes from DSAI, Azmin & Zuraida. Give the mandate to PKR/Pakatan in the next GE but don’t vote these three troublemakers in. That is how you can get rid of them permanently cos after 5 years in the wilderness, and after someone else takes over (could be Nurul if she gets enuf of support), their eventual comeback will be useless. So simple also cannot get it ah?

Been mulling over this and I’d reckon this article carries the flavour of a surat layang2 don’t you think?

I think this was written by a faction of PR (maybe PKR/DAP/PAS or all three who want the rakyat to know how powerless they are against the tide of AI and AA and their cohorts. Remember, UMNO has always worked the intimidation angle and it still manifests within PKR.

AI and his cohorts have stayed silent all this time because they are silently bidding their time, waiting for the opportunity, letting others do all the work and then reaping the rewards.

What I will be commenting about may seem a little off topic here but then again………..

Months ago , RPK commented in another article that anyone who seem to show some dissent to Pakatan or the member parties, will be screwed up and down. And now it seems I have to agree with RPK that thats what is happening. It does seem like no one in PKR or DAP or PAS can do no wrong as far as some PR supporters are concerned.

Does it not begin to look like we are exchanging BN for another version of BN i.e.PR, if the country does vote out BN? The SOP and Modus Operandi of PKR is starting to look very familiar – very UMNO like. Then what about LGE shooting his mouth off about “give telur” to BN. Sounds very familiar, remember what the bastard Toyo said to the people of Selangor before GE12 —- lets make Selangor opposition zero state!

Don’t get me wrong, I am all for regime change what sort of change are we getting? I am a a very strong and staunch supporter of PR and in particular DAP, but even so I couldn;t help but flinch when I read the statement by LGE about telur for BN. Frankly, I think some PR supporters are just plain blind. We do need opposition, even if the opposition happen to be MCA or MIC or even UMNO. They may be crooks but we do need crooks to watch out for the other crooks, otherwise we, the ordinary folks will end up sending our women to Indonesia as maids not so far in the future.

Whether DAP or PKR or PAS, we must never forget that those people are politicians and one is sure next to a snake oil salesman, never trust a politician 100%!

MCLM was a good idea and it was meant to act as counter balance to BN and PR, unfortunately it never really took off. Too bad for the rakyat.

Rakyat malaysia,
What RPK telling us is not very good if proven true. We knew YM RPK a good guy with lots of integrity. He has lots of respect for PAS and DAP even they are not perfect, there are room for improvement. So, now, we have a choice between PKR and Umno, comparing bother, we knew the following facts, :
1) Umno is proven, they are dominating and all the recent 30 years politics under Umno is not good and very bad for Malaysia, proven beyond reasonable doubt. There is just too much corruptions in all the levels, worst is the Minister and the top divisional leaders of Umno and BN. [[[ *** If Pakatan is the same, no difference anyway? *** ]]]
2) PKR, they are relatively new, and what is being said by YM RPK is not good, but we dont really have a hard fact and data to pin on them.
3) PR as a whole seem to have a good balance of power between PAS, PKR, DAP etc, and it is at least
not as dominating (PKR not as dominating over like the Umno hegemony), as such, there is probably some check and balance, as compared to the BN model, entirely rule and dominated by Umno.
comparatively, PR vs BN, PR is a better model for now.
4) As such, given if PKR is same as Umno, we at this point in time, shoule still give the benefit of doubt
to PKR, that is to say, directly compared BN vs PR, we should always choose PR, unless we have a
very good BN candidate.
5) if we have a choice between PKR vs Umno, we should choose PKR, as the Umno is proven with
track record, we Malaysia dont need to repeat, that is corrupt and NFC cowgate proven again again,
BMF scandal, Dato Zakaria very rich counselor of very big palace in Klang. Dato K Toyo, very rich and
big palace, all menteri2 and PM, very rich sons, no need to work also.
6) so, we rakyat must focus, PR and PKR not perfect, not the best on earth, but given the choice for now
we should : Umno vs PKR we choose PKR. BN vs PR, we should choose PR.
Zaid Ibrahim is good, Tengku Razaleigh is good, Abdul Kadir Sheid Fadzil is good, we can have them
help rakyat. focus, we rakyat must focus, pakat, and rakyat pakat.

I believe a lot of people already know that PKR’s modus operandi is the same as UMNO. Power determines how much $$ they will get. Those not aligned shall be sent to oblivion. Rakyat determines our conuntry’s leaders. What is stopping you to vote for clean BN or Pakatan leaders? If it causes a hung parliament, let it be. Belgium was at the same status and they still survive. But, at least we know those in the parliament are clean leaders. Parties from Borneo land might then be able to play their cards more easily to the benefits of their people.

My oh mY!! What shit abounds within the PKR!!
Perhaps it is not that bad a thing that the UMNOputras looks set to sweep the PR from Selangor.
It’ll give them time and cause for reflection what went wrong if that be the case!!

Thank you Bro Pete for the well deserved dessert!

Parti KEADILAN Rakyat. Cakap tak serupa bikin!! Where is your sense of fairness and justice?

It’s amazing how arrogant you’ve become. You are merely giving ammunition for BN to wrest away the seats you have started to take for granted. Don’t underestimate the voters. We can wait another 4 years till you get your act together. Right now, let’s just keep the 5 states and deny BN the two-thirds.

Well well well, there you go, you blind ABU supporters. PKR can’t even settle its own matter at home how can you expect it to work with DAP & PAS to run 13 states and 2 FT’s? It’s also been pointed out that those are in power now haven’t got the credibility – is that what we want in our future government? People who don’t know what they are doing and talking about, but only an appetite for $$$$?

Zaid Ibrahim may be crazy and eccentric, but I support a man with principle over a man with principle for $. The same goes for RPK. PKR already is a party that indulges in cronyism and hello – kettle meets pot??!?!? Do you think this little monster won’t grow up and become UMNO when it gets into power?

For all the ABU supporters out there, I’m not opposing to the idea of a 2-party system for check and balance. If the other party is not too dissimilar to the original party, aren’t we screwing ourselves and getting no pleasure at all?

That is why there is 3rd Force. Talk talk talk, so where are the 20 candidates that MCLM is fielding, who are they? Which constituencies, and who to contact when your ‘People’s Parliament’ site run by Tengku Dr,. Haris is just filled with ra-ra article writers who aren’t doing anything (other than writing articles), or meetings are always in some far off land? No canvassing or setting up of any offices IN MALAYSIA? Then this is another form of b.s. . . . RPK’s articles are vaguely informative but without concrete action, the MCLM is no more reputable than Pakatan. Nothing concrete so how will the people vote for 3rd Force? BN has the mandate to grant :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy.
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution.

How about putting an end to all these problems by granting the above 3 items BN?

3rd Force hurry up and get organized, don't make the Rakyat have no choice except these 2 coalitions . . .

Are Pakatan Lawyers That Incapable? – Tay Puay Chan – Monday, 19 March 2012 13:10

I find it amusing that the Menteri Besar of Selangor Khalid Ibrahim along with his excos find no qualms in splurging thousands of if not hundreds and thousands of Ringgit Malaysia (after conversion of GB£1 = RM4.844) from rate-payers’ funds to seek advice from an international London-based legal firm to resolve its stalemate with the federal government on the water industry.

Malaysian advocates & solicitors are qualified

In 2006, when a request was made to the High Court for Cherie Blair, the spouse of former British Prime Minister Tony Blaire to represent construction company Fawziah Holdings at the Federal Court, the Kuala Lumpur High Court judge Wan Afrah Wan Ibrahim ruled that although Cherie Blair is an eminent Queen’s Counsel, she has not satisfied Section 18 of the Legal Profession Act 1976, that is, she has special qualifications or experience of a nature not available amongst advocates and solicitors in Malaysia. At that time, besides the Attorney General, even the Bar Council and the Kuala Lumpur Bar Committee (KLBC) objected to her application.

The ruling by Justice Wan Afrah clearly indicates that Malaysian advocates and solicitors do have the special qualifications, experience and skills needed to represent the Selangor state government. Members of the legal profession residing, practising in Selangor state as well as other Malaysian states would best understand local issues.

A foreign-based legal firm would have to research the matter before giving his legal qualified counsel. All these is time-consuming (besides revving up the scale on legal costs borne by Selangor rate-payers) as the foreign lawyers would need to comprehend and adjust Malaysian norms, customs besides the law and issues surrounding the federal-state water tussle.

Our questioning the Selangor government’s dependence on a London law firm for legal counsel is not an argument about battling the legacies of post-colonialism or an East versus West debate.

Our objection is based on the Selangor government discarding the ability of its own state legal team, its own lawmakers elected at both state and federal levels, and other advocates and solicitors who are ordinary members or office bearers in all parties i.e. DAP, PKR and PAS forming the Pakatan coalition.

Do Pakatan lawyers know the law?

This move by the Selangor government is an indictment of the talentless, inadequacies of Pakatan members, party office bearers who are registered with the Malaysian Bar Council advocates and solicitors and legislators who draft Bills, Acts, Enactment, that they become reliant on foreign labour (skills).

So does this mean MCA is going to end APARTHEID and implement Articles 1 and 18 of the UNHCR? Pakatan lawyers flounder about to collude better AGAINST the Rakyat. The self serving creeps are not incapable, they are witholding democracy and refusing to amend laws etc. because the profit oriented flaws in the system are what makes lawyers rich and allow suppliers to collude on AGAINST the taxpayers not directly involved . . . and too many are too selfish to want to change the laws out of duty to government much less Malaysia or even mankind. (That includes BN lawyers and Malaysian Bar Council and the Malaysian Judiciary who seem not to know that APARTHEID is illegal to practice by UN signatory countries like Malaysia . . . all foreign Universities in the 1st World should withdraw these inactive and colluding, 3rd world minded ‘legal-junta‘ in the 3rd World of their degrees!).

Chinese-Jewish Malaysian Parliamentarian ~ Teresa Kok Suh Sim? – Friday, February 10, 2012

Now, isn’t this interesting? How many Malaysians know that we have a Chinese-Jewish Parliamentarian in the person of the DAP Seputeh MP Teresa Kok Suh Sim?

I happened to learn of this matter when I browsed AAKJ’s blog here where he headlined about Teresa Kok promoting forbidden food to Muslims!

Naturally such a provocative headline like that would grab my attention and up to now, I had not learned of the existence of the Chinese Jews!

So, in a sense, Thank you AAKJ for enlightening me. Terimakasih bro! Surely, such a fact would have been unnoticed if not for the advent of social media and the availability of Google Search engine which really makes it all so easy for us to do some bit of investigative research just about anything and anyone!

No wonder that Teresa is always there at the frontlines whenever anything concerning the Jews or the Christians are involved? [[[ *** The term for this is ‘Religious Fifth Columnist’ . . . *** ]]]

Wish we had our Muslim MPs with that much of commitment and perseverance to look after the welfare and safety of the ummah!

I’m going to study more about this Chinese-Jewish thingy and learn as to who they are, what makes them tick and what is their agenda at large apart from stealing Palestine from the true sons and daughters of the soil there?

Such a thing is already happening here in Bolehland but the Malays are too divided and in deep enmity against each other to take notice!

They are going to wake up one day and wonder where the hell has their Tanah Melayu disappeared to?

As it is most of the ‘Malay Reserve Lands’ has already changed hands using the ever available proxies. Read about it here. The Star newspaper reported on the issue here about foreigners buying up such lands using such tactics.

As we all know, quite a large number of the Malay landowners are notorious for selling out their ancestral lands to others only to make a hue and cry about it once they start realizing that the damage has already been done! I don’t even want to start writing about the ‘Waqaf’ lands… That’s gonna make so many hearts bleed. Muslim hearts that is..

For now, let’s study about this Chinese-Jewish DAP MP! Pretty interesting subject!

Don’t you agree? Published by MAHAGURU58 at 4:26 PM

[[[ *** RESPONSE *** ]]]

No surprise. All the chapchong literal and figurative, also political stances and types, etc., in Pakatan anyway. Theresa quite worryingly could be a brainwashed or contrived personality placed indirectly by Mossad. DAP = PAP = Zion? Israel the country may not be Zionist run though (Zionism is a form of apartheid btw) so unless the world wants to deal with a second Nazi in the form of Zionism, better know who is linked to who wherever. Sovereignty and autonomy is too important to drop. China should have an opinion on this, though why the BRICS should give up their side of the world or not even compete to control or at least keep neutral the rest of the world does not register at all. WW3? Iran would simply irradiate the region and Israel would not escape radiation. And then there’s the very ‘Jewish feel’ half blood prince RPK (the communication style and attitude are inescapable if you ask moi.) . . .

Then again if that really happens, USA would probably not even bother with clean ups (i.e will drop Israel though probably will give them Green Cards) because internal problems in USA are too severe and an irradiated Chernobyl style Middle East means at very least 50 years unliveable up to 50,000 for the heaviest elements which is what is being used in nukes of the day. Overkill is what nukes are, a handful of this current generation of nukes means the world, not just the Middle East, will be unliveable and sickened for decades due to the even more dangerous high quality and extreme distribution by the 1000s of times more powerful (1mt = 1000 kt, 50 mt = 5000kt) – and wide spreading nukes compared to Hiroshima and Nagasaki type nukes . . .

If 10km quarantines were needed for 1940s bombs and 20MT equivalent Chernobyl equivalent irradiated 300-500km, a single bomb like ‘Mike‘ 1000 times the size of a Hiroshima Bomb at 10MT but throwing particles upt to 100 times higher could potentially cause 10 times the radius worth of irradiation. This would easily mean a 3000-5000km radii of contamination . . . . So what happens with just a handful of that type of nuke fired between 2 countries 5000kms away not even a WW3? A handful of times as much radiation multiplied?  The irradiation from the fallout would destroy every life form especially the people living in the firing nation’s lands, including any nations up to 5000km away . . .  that would be the USA across the Atlantic and all the way to as far as Japan – just because Israel or Iran use a Mike sized nuke.

Weather patterns are not static and in a year or few at most that radiation will reach whatever nation that fired even if ‘downwind’ . . . whats the point, so what if any nation has nukes? Those can’t even be used! 1 megaton could already very well destroy the ecosystem no end world wide . . . but a bomb will spread much further . . . ) much less 50 megatons or Uranium or Plutonium with a half life of 50,000 years. Stick to conventional weapons at least and dismantle those unusable nukes, the Geneva Convention could otherwise simply implement new laws to require all countries to not use these radioactivity intensive weapons. Or at very most stick to nukes no larger than the ones used on Japan in the 1940s. The below link has a conventional weapon that at least does not spread health wasting radioactivity across the world :

http://americansstandwithisrael.blogspot.com/2012/03/israel-develops-its-own-bunker-buster.html

Stick to conventional weapons! Update the Geneva Convention! And please help those activists fighting for democracy in the 3rd World for simpler causes like ending apartheid or minority demographic rights, the human rights abuses and disenfranchisement are terrible . . .

Iranian Crown Jewels The Naderi Throne

Many cultures show their diversity in the traditional architecture, dances, and traditions in one’s country. Iran displays part of its rich culture and history through the Iranian Crown Jewels.

The Iranian Crown Jewels, also known as Imperial Crown Jewels of Iran or of Persia, is a collection of items passed on from generation to generation of rulers in Iran. Most of the items date back to 1500 A.D., when the Safavid dynasty acquired most of what is part of the current collection. These items were used up to the last dynasty in Iran, the Pahlavi dynasty, which was overthrown in 1979. There are many items within the collection: crowns, thrones, tiaras, swords, shields, other unusual items. Most notable of these are the Syamantaka-mani, the gem encrusted Peacock throne, the Samarian Spinel, and the bejeweled globe. Some items which were once part of this massive collection, like the Koh-i-Noor, before becoming spoils of war and were consequently taken by other owners. The Syamantaka-mani is among the largest gems in the world and now held illegally amongst the British Crown Jewels after it was seized by the East India Company and was presented to Queen Victoria, then Empress of India, in the year 1877.

The Peacock Throne, usually confused with the one in India, used to be called Sun Throne. However, after Fathali Shah’s subsequent marriage to Tavous Khanoum Tajodoleh, the name was changed. Tavous, in Persian, is the word for peacock. The Samarian Spinel is a 500 carat spinel gemstone and is from India. Uniquely, the Samarian Spinel has a hole in it, which once held a diamond (stolen?). It is also said that this was once an adornment to the biblical golden calf. The jewel-studded globe, standing in a height of 44 inches, is covered with thousands of gemstones. Water is shown by emeralds while land is shown by rubies and spinels. However, there are countries shown in diamonds such as Iran, Britain, France, and parts of South Asia.

These items are only part of the vast collection of Iranian Crown Jewels which are on public display at the Central Bank of Iran.

The Syamantaka-mani. Give up the stolen loot yer yobs !

Abu Said's Ruby. Give up the stolen loot yer yobs !

The STOLEN gem ‘The Syamantaka-mani (and others taken from the Peacock Throne) should be filed for by Iran in an international lawsuit, along with a formal charge comprising Legal Counsels to reacquire (with damages) the Abu Said’s Black Prince Ruby, the Star of India, the Star of Africa, the Cullinan, Spring Palace treasures from China and so many others jewels taken under duress during the Colonial occupations round the world. Little wonder why Iran has such poor relations with the English. The English stole and hold ILLEGALLY a part of the sovereign property of so many countries and must be made to return the stolen goods. Will the International Criminal Court backed by Interpol help these countries retrieve their stolen treasures? The Commonwealth thus by association is giving tacit approval to the violent colonialists and should also ask that these treasures taken under duress while colonised be returned. Iran could spearhead this movement in a high profile manner that will shame the English and give a sense of righteousness to Iran (barring any human rights abuses within Iran) that will ‘de-justify’ any pre-emptive strike on Iran itself. If Iran does not thorw the first punch, Iran would very well eventually take over the Middle East especially if the above cultural considerations are applied.

US: Saleh Badly Burned in Blast – www.express.co.uk – Tuesday June 7,2011

In 1% tricks and traps, Hollywood, if not contrived, Imperial Persia, one level up, Padishah Emperor, politics, Tunisia on March 9, 2012 at 6:58 pm

Yemen President Ali Abdullah Saleh was burned on more than 40% of his body and suffered bleeding in the brain from last weekend’s attack on his palace, US officials said, indicating his wounds were worse than initially reported.

The revelation casts doubts on a quick return to Yemen and spells a deepening power vacuum.

In the wake of Saleh’s evacuation to Saudi Arabia for treatment, Yemen’s violence escalated, with government troops battling Islamic militants and opposition tribesmen in two southern cities on Tuesday.

The military said it killed 30 militants who were among a group that took over the city of Zinjibar last week amid the country’s turmoil.

The United States fears that al Qaida’s branch in Yemen – one of the terror network’s most active, blamed for two attempted anti-US attacks – will take advantage of the chaos to strengthen its base in the country.

Washington and Saudi Arabia are pushing Yemeni officials to seize the opportunity of Saleh’s evacuation to immediately begin a transfer of power and formation of a new government.

The US ambassador in Sanaa spoke with Vice President Abed Rabbo Mansour Hadi, who is acting president, to press the American view, US State Department spokesman Mark Toner told reporters in Washington.

Mr Toner said he was not sure how long Saleh would undergo treatment in Saudi Arabia, or whether he still planned on returning. But he said Yemen needed to move forward in the meantime. “We need to see all sides moving forward on a constructive basis,” he said.

Friday’s attack on Saleh’s palace compound came amid two weeks of battles in Sanaa between government forces and opposition tribesmen determined to drive him from power.

The fighting pushed the impoverished country closer to civil war after four months of street protests by hundreds of thousands of Yemenis failed to oust Saleh, who has been in power for nearly 33 years.

Now if Iran would revive their Persiatic Padishah Emperor (maybe they need the Peacock Throne to be re-assembled for that line of reality to work though . . . ), they’d have to watch out for the Attreides (who are those? little wonder they need to hit England with nukes . . . ), so guess who plays the Harkonnens . . . ? Oh the red haired peoples AGAIN, give those bushy eyebrowed mentats their cats . . . aren’t some of us glad our countries were not important or pleasant enough to be featured in film?

A country ruled by a megalomaniacal leadership, hell bent on acquiring weapons of mass destruction and protected by an army of 3,500 highly trained female Ninja assassins! The plot of an upcoming B movie? No. It’s actually what’s going on in Iran right now! Well, ok maybe not exactly. I mean we do have the megalomaniacal leadership, and it sure likes their Uranium enrichment efforts have a purpose a bit more nefarious than “medical research,” and yes there are in fact 3,500 women training in the art of Ninja in Iran, but that’s where it ends.

It’s really less than likely that these women training to be Ninjas will ever be used as any kind of offensive force against anyone. It’s not even clear that the type of training they are getting is anything more than just silly acrobatics and pseudo martial arts, owing more to Ninja movies than to actual, you know, Ninja power. But, in a society where women’s freedom is as severely curtailed as it is in Iran, it’s nice to see that women have an outlet for physical fitness, socializing and self esteem. Consequently, count me as one of those who are all in favor of the Female Iranian Ninja movement! Go Ninja Go!

Also check out the awesome photography by Caren Firouz of Reuters depicting Iranian women during their Ninja training.

Iran shouldn’t get too caught up in the West’s obsession with masculinisation of women. A heavily bearded middle aged Prince of Persia type is far more threatening. This is just subversive when a honest approach would be better. Honest nations need no to hide behind women acting in teh capacity of ghostly robed assassins if the men of diplomacy have been doing their job or the men of war are strong enough to suppress their enemies . . . Hows the reacquisition of the gems lost from the Peacock Throne when the English occupied Iran, and hows the revival of Zoroastrinism coming along? Hows the extant Persian Padishah King (who would be Padishah Emperor if Persia somehow controlled the Royal House of Saud – doubtless this would be military in action but without the West’s backing, this would be diplomatic easily, the West backed wimps would quickly bow to Iran . . .) who could represent a very strong counterweight in terms of royalty to the various Western Royals, even the Sunnite House of Saud.

As for a potential Caliphate, with Persia’s native faith and religion strongly in mind FIRST, before the Bedouin conquests and conversions of Persians to Islam, (Ayatollah of the Muslim Shiites and Grand Mufti of the Sunnites (King of Arabia) could be BOTH under a single non-sect aligned Caliph who :

For claims of Caliphacy . . . the below is the only qualification among all Muslims of either sect that can justify unity in the Muslim world, any who have raised arms against any other Muslim in the history of Islam have forfeited that right – this means the neutral minority sect Muslims who have never killed another Muslim – or at least was least involved in sect to sect violence and Muslims who consider themselves neither Sunni nor Shiite to prevent subjugation of either who are a minority anywhere, perhaps a Sufi? A revived Khawarij?

;alongside an EQUALLY placed (at Caliph level) Zoroastrian High Priest faith (Zarathusthra wrote the original faith of the Persians). The Malaikat, Djinn and Efreet would be pleased to see such Concord (in a multipolar world) – perhaps ‘Concord’ was lost WITH the French ‘Concorde’ Airplane, though simply renaming that craft should do (let the distinct shape of that French plane again grace the skies in a display of French design . . . )?’

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Islam_branches_and_schools.svg

Now put all of these guys together Ahmadinejad initiate gatherings of sect heads, perhaps alongside a multifaith idealogue with Ayatollah Khomeni, the Keeper of the 2 Mosques and the Zarathustra’s High Priest as well, and towards a centralisation of culture and power, who knows a long lived peace, occurs in the Middle East in Iran sufficient enough to deter further depredation by Anglo colonialists via diplomatic-colonialism and financial-colonialism . . . MEANWHILE remember that non-Muslims do need their spaces as well for their Haram entertainments and Haram lifsetyles (Animistic Nusantaranism and Animistic African faithers where valid remember your roots . . . ), don’t turn this into a ‘convert as many people as possible on the back of helpful ideas positivity’ thing.
