MCA condemns Dong Zong – Posted on 1 July 2012

They hope the Chinese will not support us. – Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek

(The Star) – MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek has condemned the United Chinese School Committees Association of Malaysia (Dong Zong) for bringing up an alleged agreement in the 1960s between the party and the Government to limit the number of Chinese independent schools.

“Dong Zong talks about this issue to frighten the Chinese community so they will hate the MCA and Barisan Nasional.

“They hope the Chinese will not support us,” he said.

He said that although MCA was not perfect, it was undeniable that the party was doing its best for Chinese education.

Citing an example, Dr Chua said Malaysia was the only country in the region that had a complete Chinese education system from primary to university level.

He was speaking to reporters after a ground-breaking ceremony for a double-storey building with 12 classrooms at SJK (C) Karas here yesterday.

Also present at the event were Labis MP and Agriculture and Agro-based Industries Deputy Minister Datuk Chua Tee Yong and Johor exco member Tan Kok Hong.

Dr Chua said whether or not the agreement existed in the 1960s was not important anymore as it had become history.

“The country needs more trilingual talent to increase its trade volume and the trade volume between Malaysia and countries that use Chinese as their main language is about 20% of the total.

“That’s why we need to train more people to have good English, Bahasa Melayu and Mandarin,” he said.

“Today, Malaysia has a good relationship with China and the trade volume between the two countries has reached US$100bil (RM318bil),” he added.

On another matter, Dr Chua said Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim had failed to answer if Pakatan Rakyat was going to build more Chinese primary schools, Chinese independent schools, institutionalise allocations for Chinese schools and recognise the Unified Examination Certificate should Pakatan take over Putrajaya.

“I have been waiting for the answer for the past two weeks,” he said. Dr Chua said Dong Zong should get the answer for the sake of Chinese education.

I’d vote for a DJZ candidate ANY DAY over MCA (lapdog, plutocrat) or even DAP (nepotistic abusive, undemocratic like Singapore). DJZ how about fielding candidates from retired teachers IN EVERY MCA and even EVERY DAP constituency with clear intent to leave after 2 terms and address the immense collusion by both MCA and DAP sacrificing ending apartheid and the entire minority community for a mere few undemocratic political careerists to parasite off MP and Assemblyman salaries and extreme plutocrat businessmen? Ethics is lacking in MCA and DAP, DJZ needs to do some TEACHING – grassroots style!

Any other plutocrats in BN you cowards! Billions worth enough to hire armies of thugs and guards and not a word against apartheid? Against a backdrop of homelands 100s of times larger and more powerful than the wrong minded racists to be taken as lapdogs by a handful of racists? Undemocratic and term limitless but no attempt to end apartheid? Let DJZ take over ALL Chinese majority constituencies!

Soi Lek flays Johor Umno rep over hudud proposal – NEWS/COMMENTARIES – Monday, 02 July 2012 Super Admin

(The Malaysian Insider) – MCA will never agree to any implementation of hudud for non-Muslims, Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek has said.

The MCA president was responding to a Johor Umno state assemblyman’s recent proposal that the Islamic penal law be implemented to cover all residents in the state.

“The Johor Umno Adun must have run out of ideas and out of his mind 2 propose hudud in Johor including non-Muslims. MCA will definitely object it,” Dr Chua said on micro-blogging site Twitter last night.

Umno’s Kemelah state assemblyman Ayub Rahmat was quoted by online news portal Malaysiakini as saying he wished to see Johor to become the first state to implement “true hudud law”, which he claimed would differ from PAS’s version.

Ayub said his version of hudud law would be non-discriminatory as the adherents of all religions would be subjected to it in Johor.

“The Syariah Criminal Code (II) 1993 State of Kelantan does not reflect the true requirements of Islam. It creates discrimination in terms of execution (among Muslims and non-Muslims),” Ayub had said.

The Umno assemblyman, who made the proposal on the June 20 sitting of the Johor state assembly, said his proposal would help non-Muslims understand the implementation of hudud law, while accusing PAS of having failed to do so.

Hudud is a contentious issue in multicultural and multireligious Malaysia. It is often used as fodder by political parties either to engender support or attack ideological opponents.

So divisive is the topic that it even pits close allies against one another.

Within the Pakatan Rakyat opposition pact, PAS leaders have publicly stated their support for the implementation of such laws, while the DAP has argued that it went against the spirit of the Federal Constitution.


written by Voice of Reason, July 02, 2012 21:01:35
It was only a matter of time when certain educated Malays were going to ask “What makes you so special that you get to escape from hudud and we have no choice but to suffer?” and demands it be implemented on everyone or no one..


written by j lee, July 02, 2012 19:25:59
Surely that can be challenged, right up to the International Courts of Justice, if need be. This is just and ignorant’s view, just ignore him. Unless it is a plan to create a non-issue so that MCA can then be seen like a champion of the people.

written by Bean, July 02, 2012 17:02:59
If they implement hudud for all races in Johore, BN sure to lose. The chinese girls like to wear hot pants, mini skirts, have very short hair and men like to go to pub to drink. Chinese girls will not wear the tudung. What about eating pork? Even if BN will to win, the chinese will start migrating to other states, and the economy of Johore will decline.

Troll Jousting is the act of retorting comments on blogs that have been placed by trolls, or paid commentators who place comments to support a particular vested interest. The Troll Jouster places comments that show the falseness of the Troll

Wow nice Troll Jousting dude, you really bitch slapped that Troll.

Yeah, thanks eh brah! I couldn’t believe that Pro Nuke Troll was actually saying that radiation can be beneficial to your health. I had to slap ’em back in case some innocent bystander saw that Troll comment and believed it.

Well, good work dude, keep up the Troll jousting on that blog, and remember, there are NO innocent bystanders.

BN is unvotable and now stages ‘Troll Jousting’ drama to misdirect from the BUMIPUTRA APARTHEID ISSUE so that UMNO and MCA and even MIC or whatever member party gets to continue parasiting off the Rakyat.

When all else fails, will Umno turn to ASSASSINATION: Perkasa physically attacks Guan Eng

The failure by police to immediately arrest Perkasa members involved in violence not just against members of the public and reporters but also make direct threats against my personal safety has only confirmed fears that Perkasa can do no wrong because they are supported by UMNO and BN.

Police should review their hands-off approach towards Perkasa to avoid public perception that they condone the violent tactics by Perkasa to intimidate PR leaders.

Yesterday’s incident in Teluk Bahang market, where Perkasa members were allowed to conduct a demonstration and throw anti-Lim Guan Eng posters close to me, only shows that whilst there was police presence the police just stood by and watched.

The inaction by the police probably emboldened a Perkasa member to suddenly charge up behind me and succeeded in brushing hard against me. Even though the Perkasa member had brushed hard against me, I escaped injury.

But if not for a PR local leader bravely dragging the Perkasa member away, I could have been injured. Dragging the Perkasa member away from threatening my safety should have been the duty and responsibility of the police, not PR local leaders.

No arrests – why?

The failure of the police to offer adequate protection was followed by the failure of the police to immediately arrest the Perkasa member involved. Just imagine how harsh police reaction would have been if this had involved the Prime Minister and not the Chinese PR Chief Minister.

This unfortunate incident had happened even though the Speaker of the Penang State Assembly, Dato Abdul Halim bin Hussain had informed police of the demonstration by Perkasa and ask for adequate protection and stern action.

However despite a record of serial violence against the public, reporters and even PR leaders by Perkasa, Perkasa can still behave in a violent manner without fear of punishment.

Despite recording the second highest reduction in crime index as at May 2012(a reduction of 23%), police have been under scrutiny in Penang due to several high profile crime incidents in Penang in the heritage, tourist and some housing areas.

The failure to even adequately protect the Chief Minister will not lend public confidence in the ability of the police to ensure public safety when they can not act quickly against those who threaten the safety of the Chief Minister.

Lim Guan Eng is the Penang Chief Minister and DAP sec-gen (Brought to you by Carls Jr.)

Politicians who fail to keep election promises have already assassinated themselves politically. Just baiting for the physical assassination when they keep pretending campaign promises were kept and abusing by-laws that should be amended but do not. The Rakyat will move on to politicians that can keep their word and not miss those who committed political suicide by failing to keep election promises. The dirty work of physical assassination is but an after thought, like failed beneficiaries of nepotism that destroy democracy and put down the general public, refuse to amend laws and claim credit for the good works of others by being self serving parrots. Lets hope PERKASA moves faster so that the next generation of 2 term politicians have space to move into politics. take out the nepotistic political blocs PERKASA, and be sure to know that BN’s own nepotists and failed apartheid politicians will also suffer the same fate as ‘refuse to amend law’, ‘become CM without quorum’, ‘lie about declaring MP asset’, ‘fail to keep promise for local election’, etc.. trash politician here.

2 terms and nothing done, means no longer viable! And on the back of quorumless nepotism! GTFO of the Dewan! And at least in this case, cheers for PERKASA! Maybe Lim Guan Eng is expressing a subconscious desire to have a dramatic end, or more likely perhaps is just indulging in more ‘Funeral Demogoguery’ AGAIN, where 750K requests for funerals failed and were met with sh1t cakes on the trail of failed campaign promises . . .

Polls delay or not, Najib is ‘in a mess’ – Monday, 02 July 2012 19:43

PAS Murshidul Am Tuan Guru Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat has described the delay in general election as a morale booster for Pakatan Rakyat.

Saying he was not sure the reason behind the continued reluctance by prime minister Najib Razak (left) to dissolve the parliament, Nik Aziz said the UMNO president was “in a mess”.

“One thing we are sure is that Najib is in a mess,” he said, adding that Najib’s fear could be due to growing opposition strength in UMNO bastion Johor as was seen during PAS’s Green Rally to Putrajaya in the state last Friday.

“In Johor, we have never witnessed before so many people. This proves awareness among people there and the existence of a wave of change,” added the Kelantan Menteri Besar.

PAS vice president Mahfuz Omar meanwhile reminded Najib that the five-year mandate given to Barisan Nasional at the Federal level was under his predecessor Abdullah Ahmad Badawi.

As such, Mahfuz said it was wrong to suggest that Najib was ‘honouring’ the mandate from the people by going for a full term.

Najib had earlier argued that holding snap elections was “shortening the period given by the people” to BN.

“For us, what is important is to show our ability to continue to champion the people,” Najib said.

In an about-turn, former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad, who had advised Najib to hold polls after the fasting month, has agreed to the delay.

Prior to this, Najib had hinted that the elections could be called during the Hajj season, when some 30,000 Malaysians on their pilgrimage to Makkah could not vote.

Jenna Jameson Sued : Give Our Maserati Back!!! Exclusive

Jenna Jameson is currently driving around in a stolen Maserati — this according to the company that leased it to her … and now, it’s suing to get the car back.

Maserati Financial Services filed the lawsuit against Jenna in Orange County Superior Court, claiming it leased a Maserati Quattroporte S to the porn legend back in 2010 for $2,299 a month — but Jenna stopped paying in January.

MFS says it’s been trying to repossess the car to no avail — so now it’s going after Jenna in court, demanding she return the vehicle ASAP … AND pay $107,000 in damages.

Calls to Jenna’s people were not returned.

Thats around RM7000 a month or RM233 a day (USD$70 therabouts – keep in mind US citizens earn USD$ . . . so Malaysia should also be RM70) for a supercar. Consider in Malaysia where a mid-tier car not even a fraction of the value of a Maserati (not even a low end luxury vehicle) rents at 100-500 a day (with low end luxury or sports vehicles up to 1000 a day much less RM7000 for 1 month) and understand that Malaysia is a RIP-OFF country compounded by the crony favouring Vehicular-AP system and near 300% taxes on ALL vehicles. The smallest vehicles in Malaysia are near 15K USD, while in USA that can get you a medium sized vehicle. In India the prices are about HALF of the above.

So any MP that will not REMOVE Vehicular AP or lower import taxes to 10 times less that what currently is in Malaysia DOES NOT deserve to be voted. Ask your MP if they will lower those import duties and road tax. If they seem unsure or uncertain or do not comment, understand that the MP is unvotable and profiteering off the collusion with vehicle companies. Meanwhile pornstars like Jenna get to enjoy fabulous rental prices in USA, a country that is equally as bankrupt as Malaysia! Too damn high!

A Bentley Mulsanne will cost USD 285,000 (RM 962,588) when it arrives on U.S. shores next year. By the time it reaches Malaysia, the price tag would balloon to RM 3.17 million, according to the 329 percent of duties imposed on a car in this category.  Chauffer courses in the USA range from USD$99, in Malaysia such courses can easily begin at USD$300. And guess who is at fault? The 222 MPs (which the idiot voter keep voting that also impose crony benefiting Vehicular-AP on top of that) who refuse to lower tax duties or even bother to ABOLISH road taxes (USA has no road tax, though has road toll concessionaires in some money grubbing states . . . ) :

I know this is old but I can’t resist from posting this. Import Cars = Sells for a much higher price than overseas (yes even after conversion it is more than 2:1 difference)

Gas Price = Producers My Ass
Toll = Overkill
Road Tax = Overkill

Other countries like USA do not have road tax. The price of gas covers road tax. If you have no idea about how the system works in other countries dont blog about it. Malaysia taxes for import cars, road use and fuel. Other country chooses 1 out of the 3 or maximum 2 out of the 3 charge. Malaysia has all 3 + an impossible amount of tax + horrible road conditions. If you have not been overseas and lived there and/or researched their terms of funding. Don’t blog about it. You’re making urself look stupid. (F— @shawn for snarking about going overseas to live there . . . that is NOT NECESSSARY for ‘research’, but stand for election as a 3rd Force independent candidate @shawn, independent candidates are needed to end this money grubbing farce or colluding plutocrats we call government . . .)

On top of the abusive tax system which our unvotable MP’s refuse to address, Malaysians are not even allowed to tint their cars for privacy or from the extreme tropical heat, and also not allowed to modify our vehicles which are PRIVATE PROPERTY. So idiot citizens of Malaysia who vote BN or even PR who’s MPs look set to continue APARTHEID or implement hudud, disallow tinting, please run for election as independent 3rd Forcers if you can afford to on the above issues. If 222 independent MPs who decide to abolish Firced Military Conscriptions, Road Tax, Toll Concessionaires AND allow extreme Car Modding (much less merely even tinting), the highways at least would have been freed.

By the second term, the 222 independent MPs would have made Malaysia into the best place in the world to migrate to (abolish road tolls, forced conscriptions, has allodial titles, abolishes eminent domain, end vehicular AP, allows extreme car-modding, . . . so DO NOT VOTE BN (racist and stagnant) or PR (nepotist), and finally remember, kick ALL MPs (even 3rd Forec MPs) out of power after 2 terms! Vote 3rd Force!

Corruption blocking Malaysia’s leap into higher-income status, says Nazir Razak – NEWS/COMMENTARIES – Monday, 02 July 2012 Super Admin

(The Malaysian Insider) – Malaysia must overcome corruption and carry out more market-oriented reforms if it is to move up from being a middle-income economy, CIMB Group chief Datuk Seri Nazir Razak and younger brother to the prime minister has told Financial Times (FT).

The youngest son of the country’s second prime minister, Tun Razak Hussein, also told the FT that his eldest brother had “a hell of a task” because “worldwide, no one has really been able to reform from incumbency”.

Nazir’s elder brother and the country’s sixth PM, Datuk Seri Najib Razak, has been sprearheading a slew of governmental, economic and social reforms to transform the country, but Malaysia’s top banker seemed to suggest that it was not enough in an interview published in the international business paper today.

“(Corruption) remains a problem and it is something that needs to be combated,” he told FT.

Nazir (picture) told the paper that Malaysia could consider granting an amnesty for those involved in minor corruption, as has been done in Hong Kong and other countries, an idea that the Najib administration has resisted.

“You could argue that when you do that, you will get a lot less resistance from the vested interests, which is always the problem; then say, the past is the past and we all start from scratch. I still believe that’s what is needed,” Nazir was quoted as saying.

He highlighted that there was “still a need to strengthen market forces in general and that is about rolling back government in business, both in terms of bureaucracies but also in terms of its direct involvement.”

Nazir told the paper Putrajaya must push reforms that give more free rein to market forces and roll back government ownership of business through privatisations, such as the public listing of Malaysian palm oil giant Felda Global Ventures Holdings last week, which would also draw in major world business players like Axiata.

The ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) government, which Najib heads, has repeatedly come under fire for its less-than-transparent and lavish spending on government procurement projects in areas ranging from agriculture to defence, resulting in scandals such as the RM250 million National Feedlot Centre that failed to cut the country’s beef imports and the multibillion ringgit spent on buying submarines and naval patrol boats.

Malaysia’s score in Transparency International’s corruption perception index has slipping for the fourth year running; on a 10-point scale, where 10 represents no corruption, Malaysia dropped from 5.1 in 2008 to 4.5 in 2009, 4.4 in 2010 and 4.3 in 2011.

The country’s ranking also fell to 60 out of 183 countries — between Saudi Arabia and Cuba — from 56 out of 178 last year.

Malaysia remained the third-least corrupt nation in Asean after Singapore (9.2) and Brunei (5.2), with Thailand (3.4) and Indonesia (3.0) following in fourth and fifth places respectively.

Nazir does not understand what he is talking about and is blindly defending his brother Najib. People like Nazir are the corrupted cronies who sweep all the lucrative mega contracts for his CIMB. Will Nazir or CIMB dare to compete strictly on merits and in an open market ? Then we can really see how incompetent Nazir is. It is really sick to give stupid advise when Nazir is in the position of a favoured crony and taking full advantage of it.

And I think Nazir has a skewed view. No need to look worldwide – just look at our neighbour Singapore which has reformed and transformed into a thriving economy and is the largest investor in Malaysia and in most South East Asian countries.

Spread of deviant religious teachings worries Selangor Sultan – July 02, 2012

PUTRAJAYA, July 2 — The Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah, has called on Muslims to raise their level of knowledge, understanding and imbibing of Islamic teachings to protect themselves from being influenced by deviant religious teachings.

The Sultan (picture) said deviant religious teachings were actively being spread by certain groups in the country who regarded Prophet Muhammad’s companions as infidels and their religious teachers as prophets, and approved acts that were contrary to true Islamic teachings.

“This is worrying me as the deviant teachings are being insidiously disseminated through certain organisations.

“As the head of Islamic religion in the state, I do not want deviant religious teachings to influence the minds of the young in schools and higher learning institutions, as well as the community at large.

“Therefore, I hope the fatwa (edicts) that have been gazetted can be effectively enforced, taking into consideration the existing syariah legal provisions,” the Sultan said in his speech in conjunction with the Pemier Islamic Forum at Kolej Universiti Islam Antarabangsa Selangor (KUIS) in Bandar Baru Bangi near here tonight.

The Sultan said he wanted issues like lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transsexuals (LGBT), apostasy, religious pluralism, insulting and criticising Islam and other acts which could create conflicts and chaos to be immediately but decorously dealt with.

Sultan Sharafuddin said based on studies carried out, more and more Muslims were involved in LGBT activities which received the support of several non-governmental organisations and through the Internet and social media like Facebook as a medium for communication and interaction.

“I do not want to see the Muslim community divided and weak.

“I urge the Muslim community, particularly the Malays, to be united in protecting the sanctity and position of Islam as the official religion of the federation, so that it will continue to be respected and held in high esteem by all,” he said.

The Sultan also urged Muslims to maintain good relations with the other communities in the country so that peace, harmony and prosperity could prevail.

Single track minds are a luxury (if not cynical use as tools of control of already generally respectful populations) to behold . . .

This is a genetic issue not a social or religious issue. Nature (or Allah for the Muslims) has designed all of these expressions of humanity both to show us what is wrong and right, and even allows the state of apostasy as is Man’s right to free will that Malaysian Syariah Law ignores – ask the Al Azhar Islamic Universirt at Cairo if denying right to apostasy is correct or reasonable by any country that is supposed to be a Muslim country. Man not state has no right to demand any other to follow and children who have not reached maturity to CHOOSE to be Muslims can hardly be fairly considered Muslims as they would have to reach adulthood first BEFORE choosing to be Muslim, consider facing the prophet or if no real Muslim at all, there is no point.

Though any parents could bring any children up as Muslims, the  choice of these children MUST NOT be  taken from them – sad to say too many Muslims in Malaysia are of the former sort who have never been given a chance to choose , worse still are those being lured with the opportunity to oppress non-Muslims instead of choosing of free will and out of love of Islam per se. Their reasons for being Muslims are to abuse non-Muslims not because they are pious or fear Allah!

The sanctity and position of Islam as the official religion of the federation will always be viable in those who want to follow. Those who do not or cannot have nothing to do with Islam’s sanctity and hudud or violence must never be used against them! What would the gentle Prophet have done? Hudud is inapplicable, know the difference between REAL Muslims and those who lack the will to challenge a flawed system that entices with evil minded and disenfranchising, racist paradigms.

Shame on those who call themselves pious or Muslim but do not understand or consider the above! No good Muslim or even world citizen will deny any other :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism (Article 1 Human Rights Charter)
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. (Article 18 Human Rights Charter)
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. (Surah An Nisa 4:75)

Britain blamed for Indian Malaysians’ ‘plight’ in ex-colony IANS | Jun 30, 2012, 08.00PM IST

LONDON: An exiled Indian Malaysian human rights lawyer plans to file a lawsuit against the British government for failing to provide adequate safety to the community under the rule of Malay-Muslim majority when independence was granted to the former colony.

London-based Waytha Moorthy claims that the then British Harold MacMillian’s government failed to provide protection to Indian Malaysians when independence was granted to the former colony in 1957.

The 46-year-old lawyer was expected to re-issue a class action lawsuit at the High Court Monday. He is claiming a sum of $1 million in compensation for each one of Malaysia’s 1.8 million Indians.

Originally launched in 2007, but never heard and now out of time, Moorthy’s claim is on behalf of Indian Malaysians who he said face human rights abuses and live unprotected and in “continuous colonisation”.

The then British government gave the Muslim population special rights and privileges, effectively establishing a system of apartheid ever since, he said in a statement.

“In India, at the time of partition, the British government gave rights to minorities.

“In Malaysia, minority racial and religious groups were hung out to dry. The result is that 45 percent of the population is still being marginalised, humiliated and discriminated against when it comes to jobs, education and finance,” said Moorthy, chair of

HINDRAF, an NGO advocating equal rights for Indian Malaysians.

Another strawman? The Malaysian government cannot be left out of this kind of lawsuit even as the English are no longer responsible though the English did initiate the Special Privileges via the Reid Commission which clearly stated only a 15 year period before review for abolishment of what has now become APARTHEID. The Malaysian MPs of whatever race or party who have kept the special privileges in place here the actual offenders. The Malaysian MPs who refuse to bring up or ratify a bill abolishing apartheid are at fault, not the English. Conversely, the English could speak ON Moorthy’s side at this angle condemning Malaysian MPs who refuse to remove apartheid privileges applicable only for 15 years. At the same time, Moorthy could fairly also demand that the ‘Eye of Brahma’ Black Diamond (currently in 3 parts, amongst other stolen treasures held by England) be returned to India.

The true criminals are the Malaysian MPs, also appropriate Ministerial portfolio members of cabinet, (of all races and faiths) who refuse to give or address or acknowledge :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism (Article 1 Human Rights Charter)
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. (Article 18 Human Rights Charter)
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. (Surah An Nisa 4:75)

That has led to feelings of disenfranchisement that have led to emotional distress and social persecution of those politically aware as well as political activists in Malaysia who should be compensated for any suffering they were made to endure during the entire period of the ILLEGAL (after 1976 at any rate) Special Privileges. Could the UN, Human Rights Council (which Malaysia is unsuitably a member of)  and also Sunnite Islam’s highest authority (on the issue of Asabiya) please arbitrate and order that the obviously ILLEGAL and APARTHEID Special Privileges be ended immediately as well?

S’gor water: Game of chicken is scaring residents? – Thursday, 05 July 2012 08:26

BN VIEWPOINT THERE is so much news of an impending water problem in the Klang Valley that it got me worried. I am not sure if it will be due to less rain, more development or politics — or all of the above.

In the Klang Valley the threat of water shortage began in 2008 when the Pakatan Rakyat government decided to take on the water companies, alleging they were inefficient and were getting sweetheart deals from the federal and previous state governments.

While the current state government is not responsible for higher water consumption, it nevertheless can be taking us to a water crisis in a hand basket.

The decision by the Selangor government to give free water soon after getting sworn into office in 2008 was the beginning of the politicising of water, just as some would politicise religion or education.

The desire of Menteri Besar Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim to impress the people of Selangor, and score political points, too, with benevolence is understandable. What better way to do so than with free water.

Khalid often claims that the free water does not see an increase in usage. That may be true, but he misses the point, entirely.

Water is a finite and valuable resource. Even if we can afford to give it away for free, we must not, since it will lessen its value to some people. Furthermore, it costs money to treat and make water potable, and people must know so.

An irony in the Selangor free water initiative is that many of those living in low-cost flats, for example, do not benefit from it, while those who can afford homes, do.

The standoff with the water companies and the Federal Government has a populist ring to it and would of course be politically rewarding. Selangor also put on hold several water-related projects on the premise of protecting the state from unfair deals.

It has been four years of relative inactivity, water-wise. At the same time the Klang Valley has expanded by dramatic proportions. Puchong, for instance, has turned into a major residential and commercial area, rivalling Subang Jaya, which is also expanding. Everywhere, new residential, commercial and industrial developments have, and are taking place.

As a result, the carrying capacity of the greater Klang Valley, with a population some estimate to be close to eight million, that is the heartbeat of the nation, is being stretched.

For water especially, this can already be felt by long-time residents who are experiencing lower water pressure these days. Some reports suggest if the margin of reserve is as thin as it is now, and if drought were to hit us, then we would be in trouble. The massive water shortage of the late 1990s is also fresh in our minds.

Khalid and his supporters on the other hand claim that there is no such thing as a water problem in Selangor and that the scaremongering is the work of political opponents. The claim that the Klang Valley would have a water crisis by 2014 is also a cry wolf.

Regardless, logic has it that if demand keeps increasing and supply were to remain the same, at some point, we would be in trouble.

At the moment I do not really care who is right or wrong. The state’s steadfastness over the issue is no longer admirable, but is verging on foolhardiness.

Stop politicising water. Klang Valley residents should not have to pay for political grandstanding, by anyone. This high-stake game of chicken, waiting for who will blink first is getting close to ridiculous — especially with the prospect of dry taps for millions of people.

Knowing what rubbish Malaysia can degenerate into, there can be no harm in buying a week or few worth of water and food supplies for future use. That way water ‘threats’ won’t be effective in swaying votes. And don’t use plastic bottles or tanks as your ‘private reservoir’ – plastic sloughs off into the water. If anyone in Dewan has half a mind to riot to cause a lockdown or ‘Emergency’, the citizens will be ready to hold out until the ASEAN or NATO Peacekeepers get here.

On a side note incidentally, for all the farcical harm Mahathir Mohammed has caused Malaysia via Vehicular AP and Toll Both System, stolen lives and lands from Orang Asli indigenous peoples, racism against the Indians and Chinese, how could the UN even give that nepotistic old dictator (who bailed out childrens’ shipping failures) an award – Rafik Hariri UN-Habitat Memorial award, for ‘accomplishments in areas that include leadership (dictatorship is not leadership); statesmanship and good governance (Ops Lallang and Judicial Crisis are massivce failures that UN can hardly ignore); construction and reconstructions of settlements and communities (destructionof Orang Asli habitats – alienations of OrangAsli lands and forced resettlement without choice is NOT construction) ; and human resource development (breeding cronyism and corruption – ask ANY Malaysia EVEN the cynical UMNO party the old creep Mahathir is from – for any idea on how Malaysia feels about Mahathir . . . .’ SOCIAL development?

UN whats wrong with you? I propose that the entire awards committee or vetting panel for the Rafik Hariri UN-Habitat Memorial award BE SACKED, and all others ‘awards vetters’ be audited for potential BRIBERY and corruption. UN is fast becoming redundant when awards can be given to the most criminal of people who did the exact opposite of what the worst most unstatesmen like 3rd world cults of personality for awards like the above. One even begins to wonder if Rafik Hariri was another criminal to begin with now! NAM and BRICS or ASEAN or UNASUR will indeed have to play UN’s role in ‘counter-vetting’ now. Lets see what the above non-UN organisations say about the award to determine what the above non-UN organisations are worth. Perhaps USA would like to comment? After all UN HQ is currently in the USA, and if USA concur with the Rafik Hariri UN-Habitat Memorial award being correctly awarded to one of the worst people in ASEAN, then USA is as bad as the person disgracefully awarded . . . just shocking . . .

A sentencing guide? – Posted on 3 July 2012 – 09:22pm – Last updated on 3 July 2012 – 09:29pm – R. Nadeswaran

MORE than three decades ago, I sat in the public gallery at the magistrate’s court as a pregnant woman was brought in to the dock with her hands cuffed behind her back. The interpreter read the charge to her and asked: Mengaku salah atau tidak?

“She pleads guilty, your honour,” the interpreter said and asked her if she had anything to say in mitigation. “Saya ambil susu itu untuk anak saya.” (I took the milk for my child.) For shoplifting a tin of powdered milk and some other items, she was sent to the slammer for six months.

Two days later, before another magistrate, a 22-year-old man pleaded guilty to committing criminal breach of trust of RM20,000 belonging to his employer. After pleading guilty, his counsel stood up and mitigated, playing up his client’s good values and how his client ended up in wrong company and was forced to steal from his employer. He was bound over on a good behaviour bond.

In the month that followed, my then colleague Au Foong Yee, who was covering the PJ courts reported about a man who caused injury to a victim while committing robbery. He was bound over but the minor report did not escape the eyes of Justice N. H. Chan who was a sitting High Court judge. He called up the case for review and imposed a custodial sentence.

In the years that followed, I continued to read about the rich and famous getting away with slaps on their wrists but yet could do nothing, especially cases involving white collar crimes. These two incidents, though, left me pondering over what I perceived as unfair and unequal sentences. On more than one occasion, I had used the pregnant woman’s sentence in this column. Very much later, in the university library in England, I came across a publication called Sentencing Guidelines.

The foreword was compelling reading. Sentencing, it says, is a complex and difficult exercise. It can never be a rigid, mechanistic or scientific process. Consistency of approach by sentencers is essential to maintain public confidence. But perfect consistency in outcome is impossible to achieve because of the infinite variety of circumstances with which, even in relation to one kind of offence, the courts are presented.

“In choosing a fair and just sentence in a particular case, judges and magistrates, within the parameters established by Parliament, must have regard to the gravity of the offence, its impact on the victim, the circumstances of the offender and the wider public interest. In relation to all these matters they must exercise judgment and discretion,” wrote Lord Justice Rose, vice-president, Court of Appeal (Criminal Division) and the deputy chairman, Sentencing Guidelines Council.

That was seven years ago and sentencing is still a fascination and court reports are closely followed. Last week, there was cause to have reason to be happy because a seldom-heard-of custodial sentence was imposed by the Court of Appeal for a white collar crime.

Even the Securities Commission called it a landmark decision as a former Fountain View Development Bhd company director, Datuk Chin Chan Leong, was sent to prison to serve a 12-month jail sentence for a share manipulation offence in Bursa Malaysia committed between 2003 and 2004.

Chin, who pleaded guilty to shares manipulation two years ago, was initially given a one-day jail sentence and RM1.3 million fine for the offence. A three-member Appeals Court panel enhanced (Chin’s) custodial sentence to 12 months’ jail after ruling that the one-day jail imposed by the sessions court did not reflect the seriousness of the offence.

We are often reminded that laws are sets of moral codes which have been put on paper for ease of enforcement. Hence, those who commit crimes against fellow citizens, must be appropriately punished. So, can we expect a set of guidelines for magistrates and judges to use?

Try the one in the ‘Gambier Threat’ where the laws are not amended and fines imposed on everyone FOR offenses committed on their own private property. the amount of suffering created and fines imposed far outstrips 1 can of powdered milk. At the police level after reporting, a simple talk with the/a local Ombudsman and a gifting of another can of milk by the local list of billionaires or millionaires (in turn so that the pain will be shared – one can of milk is nothing to too many of us) should be where this ends. Not wasting more resources and then allowing the prison contractor system to profit AGAIN.

The court magistrate or who knows even the arresting officer should be offended enough to dismiss the case instantly, (after gifting the woman money for milk? Who will take care of the woman’s child?) and not even waste the taxpayer’s time and funds much less punish the woman at 1000s of times the cost to taxpayers for 1 can of milk – inquitable and wasteful hence unjust. Where are the days when the local big shot or state apparatus would just distribute milk so that people who do need to steal like this won’t have to and just turn up at the ‘food stamp centre’ every month instead? The planet’s English based modern legal and punishments system is the most inefficient system in nature and any civilisation in this universe. We civilised persons aware, should be ashamed at the greed and selfishness plutocrats and the punitive nature of judgements which burden society and taxpayer. Magnanimity and wasteful lack of creative treatment of problems typifies Malaysians.

Poison of Cyanide in Bukit Koman, Raub, Pahang – Monday, June 16, 2008

Bukit Koman a small village situated in the district of Raub, Pahang became famous over a hundred years ago because of its godl mine. There are about 400 households and a population of about 3,000. Life was peaceful and serene until early August, 2006 when the issue of “Cyanide” brought fear and anxiety.

August 21st, last year, the London listed company known as Peninsular Gold Limited wholly own subsidiary, Australian Gold Mining Sdn. Bhd., has obtained the written approval from the Mineral and Geosains of Pahang to mine gold using Cyanide at the vicinity of the gold mining site in Bukit Koman without the knowledge of the villagers. It is known that they have built up the infracture for gold mining already.

Cyanide (CN) is the most toxic chemical, that can stop human cells from consuming exygen. Anyone who inhales concentrated Hydrogen Cyanide Gas ould drop dead instantly. In using Cyanide to extract gold, the yield is high as 97% which made the venture very attractive. Since 1960, the use of Cyanide in gold mining becama very common.

In october 1st 2006, the Gold Mining Company disclosed the approval letter for Cyanide gold mining form the State Government to the Bukit koman Committee members over lunch in one of the Raub Restaurant. They claimed that it is safe and the health of the villages will not be affected. After the Bukit Koman Committee members broke the news to the villagers, some went online to find out more about Cyanide. It is confirmed that the Cyanide is a deadly chemical. The villagers decided to from a committee to protect themselves. They seek the assistance of “Sahabat Alam Malaysia” (SAM) and with its help, an Anti-Cyanide Committee was formed. An all residents Anti-Cyanide compaign were mobilized.

As Bukit Koman New Village is situated just right at the side of the gold mine, the villages are very unhappy that the Pahang Mine And Geology Department has surreptitiously approved the use of Cyanide in gold mining without deu considerations.

Our Malaysia Government and Environmental Minister has always stressed the importance of relocating the small, medium and big industries with either smoke or non-smoke to be at least 5 km away from town area and all the environmental wastes must be treated very carefully. All the villagers, young and old alike are frightened and anxious and angry at the total disregard to their health and well being.

The nearest house, No. 74-A in Bukit Koman is only two meters away from the mining site and most of the houses in the village are only separated by a village road.

Question being asked, how and why did The Pahang Mine and Geology Department able to grant and approve the use of Cyanide in the mining of gold here when there are houses and small industries (Mee, Tau Foo, Groundnuts) so close to the mine.

There is a river flowing through the mining site. If the river overflows during floods, the water will seep into the gold mining infrastructure and can lead to Cyanide leadage and resulting in disastrous conssequences.

This has already happened in advanced and developed countries that used Cyanide to extract gold. Should that happen here, not only Bukit Koman villagers are danger but also the whole Raub population as well.

River pollution will definetely lead to “The Raub Oil Mill” and Oil Palm plantations by the Koman River. The mill uses the water for the manufacturing of Palm Oil products. These products are meant for markets both locals and overseas.

Polluted water will definitely lead to Lipis District also because the water flows to Sungai Dong and there on to Sungai Lipis and on and on.

A resident by the name of Gan Chew Yen, presently doing her Master Degree in Chemistry, pointed out that when Cyanide solution is slightly Acidic, it can turn to Cyanide Gas which is extreamely toxic and when Cyanide solution is Alkaline, the Cyanide will not break down. So either in the air or water, this chemical is extremely toxic to the environment.

Robert Moran, a Geo-Chemical expert, has found Cyanide contaminated sediments at a Cobalt-Nickel mine in Missouri that contained many milligrams per kilogram of total Cyanide more than 25 years after all processing had ceased. Samples of bricks, concrete palster and mortar from buildings at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps collected 45 years after all use of Cyanide ceased still showed detectable concentrations of Cyanide, presumably as Iron Cyanides.

History of accidents did happen; Cyanide and heavy metal leaks from the Summitville gold mine killed all aquatic life along a 27 kilometer stretch of the Alamosa River in the San Juan Mountains of Southwestern Colorado. By the time the fold mine was shut down in December 1992, the total clean-up costs have exceeded US$150 million.

In North-Western state of Montana, November 3, 1998, banned the use of Cyanide to extract gold. After years of suffering and dozens toxic leaks from the local mines, the indigenous assiniboine and Gros Ventre peoples had to battle for years in court to force Pegasus, a Canadian gold mining company, to clean-up Cyanide Waste on the Fort Belknap reservation in the Little Rocky Mountains of Montana. Although the community won the lawsuit in 1996, the company declared bankruptcy the following year thwarting clean-up efforts.

The community of Bergama, Turkey, was the first to win a legal ban on Cyanide. In May, 1997, the highest Turkish administrative court overturned approval given by the Department of Environment for the proposed Eurogold project after a rally by 10,000 local poeple with 1,000 tractors occupied the mine site. The judgement was based on the Turkish Constitution and its guarantee of a healthy and intact environment. The court found that the Cyanide based mining technology was at odds with these constitutional rights.

There were “seven wells” left behind by the Raub Australian Gold Mining company when they mined gold underground many years ago. The Australian started mining gold in Raub and Bukit Koman since 1898 to 1963. These seven wells are situated along a straight line from “Raub Well” near the present Chung Ching Secondary School in Raub to the “Malacca Well” in Bukit Koman at the present gold mining area. The depths of these wells range from 600 ft. to 1,200 ft. underground. These wells are accessible by underground tunnels, which included the three wells now under the waste mining lake (tailings).

If the waste tailings and water containing Cyanide seeps into ground and into the waste mining lake, the whole of Raub District will be Cyanide contaminated by way of the underground water, interconnected by these tunnels.

Pollution would not only have a serious repervussion on the 3,000 villages of Bukit Koman but the whole population of Raub District.

The villagers have been very sincere in asking The Pahang State Government, Parliment and State Assemblyman to consider their humble request and look into their plight. It is the villagers hope that the “Letter of Authority To Mine” No. Phg. 14/2006 dated 21/8/2006 using Cyanide / Carbon In-Leach by the Mineral and Geosains of Pahang, on the study that was based some 10 years ago be revoked from the gold mining company. Last but not least we would like the Government of the day to treat this matter with urgency and not to one gold mining company that overrides the population of Raub.

Typical. 1 comment and DAP sees fit to remove. Malaysia Chronicle a pro-DAP outfit also does the same, did that so much I stopped posting more or less there. This being the MP’s site, doesn’t surprise at all. Would Raub citizens want to field an independent candidate who will shut all gold mines immediately? Consider one of those retirees who will also stand for :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism (Article 1 Human Rights Charter)
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. (Article 18 Human Rights Charter)
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. (Surah An Nisa 4:75)

The local MP is probably on the take from RAGM and pretending to be sending samples and what not. A really decisive MP would have shut down the whole area by declaring the whole constituency ‘Agriculture and Residential only’. Would the voters in Raub want to vote for a candidate that would be able to not be tempted by gold or buyoffs and just shut every offending mine down as is the MP’s power and right to represent the locals rather than collude against the locals? Independent candidates and 3rd Forcers, activists, want to write 1 law (which is more than that CM of Penang character did) for the entire 1st term stint which abolishes use of cyanide or any dangerous chemical ENTIRELY in all gold mining operations at least? Voters should know who has the mind to do that . . .

‘Umno does not own BN’ – Wednesday, 04 July 2012 Super Admin

A MIC leader says the the days of the ‘Big Brother’ syndrome is over and component parties should not quit BN if it disagreed with Umno.

(FMT) – Barisan Nasional is made up of various partners founded on the principle of power sharing and no party can claim to be the sole proprietor of the coalition, said a MIC leader.

Therefore, S Vell Paari stressed that if Umno crossed the line then the other parties should come together to discuss the matter and find a solution.

In the past, he said Umno leaders had called for the withdrawal of component parties from BN whenever it was deemed that the line was not toed.

“So why is it that whenever a controversial issue arises concerning Umno it is the component parties which threaten to quit BN? This should not be the case.

“No one party has a monopoly in BN and decisions are based on consensus. Gone are the days of the ‘Big Brother’ syndrome,” he told FMT.

The MIC central working committee member also disagreed with the description of Umno being the backbone of BN, saying that the title belonged to the people.

The son of former MIC president S Samy Vellu was responding to the warning from MCA’s Young Professionals Bureau head Chua Tee Yong.

Tee Yong, the son of MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek, said his party would quit BN if Umno attempted to implement the Islamic hudud law.

He was reacting to Johor Umno state assemblyman Ayub Rahmat who suggested that hudud be implemented in the state to cover all races.

Ayub had put MCA in a spot as the hudud issue had been one of the Chinese-based party’s most potent weapon against its Chinese-predominated rival DAP over the latter’s association with the Islamic PAS.

Time to be more aggressive

Meanwhile, Vell Paari was confident that Umno would not push for the implementation of hudud but stated that the controversy necessitated certain points to be made clear.

He said MIC and MCA’s problem with Umno in the past was that its previous leaderships refused to acknowledge or even compromise with the two parties.

This, he noted, led to the inequality between the races, which in turn bred the resentment of the Chinese and Indian communities towards BN.

“I am not against the development of the majority but at the same time, the minorities should not have been left out in terms of education, employment and so forth,” he said.

However, Vell Paari said the situation was different now under the stewardship of Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak.

“He is a prime minister who is willing to listen and he even had the courage to apologise for the coalition’s past mistake. Whatever said and done, I respect the man for that,” he said.

On the same note, Vell Paari said MIC and MCA must be more aggressive in fighting for the rights of the communities which the parties represented.

“The hard and cold fact is that our respective communities chose to turn their backs on us because we were seen as toothless tigers. And true enough, we were bullied into a corner.

“We must make a stand to show that we are not second or third fiddle in BN and our leaders are not there to attend functions and savour the kuih alone,” he said.

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

Don’t talk and use the mandate BN already has to grant :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism (Article 1 Human Rights Charter)
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. (Article 18 Human Rights Charter)
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. (Surah An Nisa 4:75)

There is nothing BN can offer the Rakyat now, and all BN MPs are millionaires and billionaires already. Who needs this sort of MPs or inequality? Use that mandate to grant the above 3 items and stop expecting the citizens to vote for BN! Why should anyone vote for a coalition that does not use the mandate they already have to end apartheid?

Battle of scandals: Guan Eng vs Soi Lek – Wednesday, 04 July 2012 Super Admin – RK Anand, FMT

In declaring his fidelity and denying his wife assaulted him or the other woman, the DAP leader slips in an attack against the MCA president, who then retaliates.

In the latest chapter of the tussle between DAP and MCA, Lim Guan Eng has been accused of sharing an intimate relationship with a former staff and thus earning the wrath of his wife. His enraged wife Kota Laksamana (Malacca) assemblywoman Betty Chew, alluded MCA, had then assaulted both Lim and the woman, who had since been transferred. In a media statement this afternoon, the DAP secretary-general denied the allegation that his wife had beaten him or the woman.

Launching a vitriolic salvo against his opponents, Lim, who denied indulging in an extra-marital affair, also seized the opportunity to revisit MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek’s scandalous past.

He dared Malacca MCA chairman Gan Tian Loo, who raised the matter in the state assembly on Monday, to repeat his claim outside the House without hiding behind the cloak of immunity.

Lim said this would allow his wife and him to drag Gan to court and prove that he (Lim) was not like the MCA president.

“DAP never indulges in gutter politics,” he pointed out.

“DAP never abused parliamentary privilege and proceedings to attack the MCA president when he was caught in a video tape having an extra-marital affair with another woman,” he added.

Lim regretted that while DAP chose to exercise restraint, MCA was willing to stoop low.

Taking another swipe at the MCA president, the Penang chief minister said he would not ask Chua to direct Gan to repeat his allegation outside the House since the former had no moral authority to do so given his own scandal.

Instead, he wanted Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak to issue the order.

Training his guns on Gan, Lim said if the latter failed to repeat his allegation, it would prove that he was a coward who was unfit to be a leader.

“Worse, he will show himself unworthy to be a husband and father… who can make false allegations against another to destroy not just his political career but also the family’s happiness.

“What kind of leader is Gan when he is willing to be used as a lackey of Umno to play such gutter politics?” he asked.

Chua: I have courage, you don’t

Retaliating, the MCA president agreed that Lim was not like him as there was a stark difference between the two, which was courage.

“I have the courage to be responsible and bear the consequences [for my actions],” he said in a media statement.

Chua asked if Lim would be brave enough to admit his mistake, apologise and resign from his posts as he did.

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

The Rakyat does not care who sleeps with who in DAP and MCA or if DAP and MCA has orgies every weekend with their political interns. Thats for the wife or husband to sue. The Rakyat only cares about having :

2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. (Article 18 Human Rights Charter)
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. (Surah An Nisa 4:75)

;and that TERM LIMITS are respected, that democracy and equality is upheld. Morality is NOT the same as good policy writing or conscientious amendments to bad laws or ending apartheid. Have orgies all you want DAP and MCA, but not use a mandate to end apartheid or use those legislative powers to amend laws, and the Rakyat will have no further use for any political party, BOTH Lim Guan Eng and Chua Soi Lek will be useless to the voter if they talk about their sex lives instead of amending laws and ending apartheid. 2 terms, AND equality, then GTFO of Dewan for the other citizens to participate in bettering the nation instead of talking about whos sleeping with who.

To understand today you need to know yesterday – Wednesday, 04 July 2012 Super Admin – by John Roberts, WSWS.ORG

Many of you were not in the scene back in 1997/1998 when Malaysia was hit by a financial crisis and Anwar Ibrahim made his move to oust Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. It was a classic case of the hunter becoming the hunted and how Dr Mahathir turned a losing hand into a winning hand. It may be time to revisit what happened 14-15 years ago considering that many of these players are now re-emerging as the power-brokers for the coming general election.

THE CORRIDORS OF POWER

Malaysian government instigates a politically motivated ‘anti-corruption’ drive

Malaysian economic regulatory authorities—the Securities Commission and the central bank, Bank Negara—have initiated an extensive crackdown in the corporate sector in the name of ending corrupt practices. However, questions have been raised by opposition figures and in financial circles about the selective, political nature of the measures that have targeted businessmen connected to opponents of the Malaysian government.

On August 12, the Malaysia’s Sun newspaper reported that the Securities Commission had handed the Immigration Department a list of 70 names of businessmen and their senior advisors to prevent them from leaving Malaysia. The Securities Commission admitted taking the action, claiming only that the number was lower.

Among those already arrested and facing charges are some of the most prominent figures in the country’s corporate sector. On April 30, Ismail Zakariah, a former chief executive of the Sime Bank, a major Malaysian bank, was charged with breaking lending guidelines under the Banking and Financial Institutions Act by lending $M175 million ($US46 million) against the instructions of the bank’s board.

On July 24, KFC managing director Ishak Ismail and Abrar Corporation executive chairman Wan Hasni Wan Sulaiman were charged with offences under the Securities Act. The KFC director, who became a major corporate figure after gaining control of Idris Hydraulic in 1991, is charged with providing false information in 1996 when submitting a plan for Securities Commission approval. Wan Hasni Wan Sulaiman has been charged over allegedly using a plan to cheat investors in 1997.

On August 4, Datuk Tony Thiah Thee Kian, executive of TA Securities, the country’s largest retail brokerage firm, and his sister-in-law, Kimmy Khoo Poh Kim, the company secretary, were charged with aiding the political and business figure John Soh Chee Wen in defrauding the now defunct Omega Securities of $M424.9 million. If convicted Tiah and Khoo could face jail sentences of up to 10 years and fines of up to $M1million. The authorities have initiated an international manhunt for Soh.

Opposition figures have accused Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad of directing the crackdown against businessmen connected to the deposed and jailed former deputy prime minister and financial minister Anwar Ibrahim. Similar concerns have been voiced by bankers and businessmen quoted in Hong Kong and Singapore-based newspapers.

Members of Parti Keadilan Nasional (National Justice Party), established this year by Anwar’s wife Wan Azizah, have denounced the measures saying they are aimed at smearing and intimidating opposition supporters in the lead-up to the national elections. One of the government’s aims, they say, is to cut off funds for opposition parties.

The poll is due to be held by the middle of next year, but there is widespread speculation in the press that Mahathir will call an early election.

The government claims the crackdown is not politically motivated but has been initiated by the Securities Commission in response to calls from foreign investors, fund managers, business and the media for moves against corrupt business practices. Mahathir said the regulating authorities were acting independently of the government. Securities Commission chairman Ali Abdul Kadir commented: “We are not concentrating on any particular sector, party, of friends of anybody.”

Mahathir’s assertions appear to be rather hollow, as a number of those facing charges are well known for their connections to Anwar.

For 10 years until 1991, Datuk Ishak Ismail was secretary of the ruling United Malays National Organisation (UMNO) division of Permatang Pauh—Anwar’s constituency in Penang. After 1991 he remained a committee member. His political closeness to Anwar is apparent from an interview in which he said Anwar “is my mentor and I learnt a lot from him. I felt privileged to serve under him in his division. I have great respect for him. He is a leader of high integrity.”

Wan Hasni Wan Sulaiman was also a strong Anwar supporter. He was deputy chief of the UMNO young organisation in Kelantan until Anwar was deposed in last September. In October, he was expelled from UMNO for “anti-UMNO activities” as part of a purge of 300 to 400 Anwar supporters.

Ismail Zakaria was known to be close to both Mahathir and Anwar when the latter was Finance Minister. He was being considered as a future governor of the Bank Negara.

Furthermore, the roundup of Anwar supporters comes in the aftermath of fresh allegations by the jailed Anwar of corrupt practices by close supporters of Mahathir. In the course of July, he lodged police reports accompanied by supporting documents alleging that:

* Mahathir, in collaboration with the attorney-general’s chambers, blocked the criminal prosecution of international trade and industry minister Rafidah Aziz over charges that she had favoured her son-in-law in an allocation of shares.

* Mahathir, and not managing director Eric Chia, was largely responsible for $M3 billion in losses at the state-owned steel corporation Perwaja.

* Present Finance Minister and business tycoon Daim Zainuddin received money and shares from three prominent businessmen — Halim Saad, controlling shareholder of the giant Renong corporation; Tajudin Ramli, Malaysian Airlines chairman and principal shareholder; and Wan Azmi Wan Hamzah, chairman of the property group Land & General. Daim is one of Mahathir’s closest political associates.

While Anwar’s allegations have received little publicity and are unlikely to be pursued by the police, they appear to have rattled the Mahathir government. “The Anwar reports have put the government back on the defensive. They seem to be in a bind on how to react,” Jomo Sundaram, an economics professor, commented.

The crackdown by the Securities Commission is part of Mahathir’s answer as he considers whether to call an early election. The UMNO general assembly, held from June 18 to 20, was used by the party leadership as a virtual election rally. Claiming that the government’s regulatory policies were working, Mahathir and Daim branded the IMF’s policies as moves by the “ethnic Europeans” to recolonise Malaysia, and Anwar and his supporters as the lackeys of foreign capital.

The government has also put Anwar on trial for a second time, on charges of sodomy. He is already serving a six-year sentence on corruption charges. The trial has proceeded despite evidence that witness statements against Anwar were coerced by the police. The police have just admitted this week that they rewrote the charges when it was discovered that the apartment block in which the offenses were supposed to have taken place had not even been built at the time.

As well as the publicity surrounding the trial, Mahathir is counting on an improved economy to assist him winning an early election. But the so-called recovery in Malaysia has largely been fueled by government spending and is rather shaky. There has been little foreign investment in the country. Export growth in April and increased foreign reserves occurred against the backdrop of an economic contraction of 7.5 percent last year. Banks have refused to increase lending by the 8 percent demanded by the government.

Anwar’s expulsion last year and his subsequent jailing were not simply the product of a personal falling-out between the prime minister and his former deputy, but reflected deep rifts in ruling circles in the wake of the Asian economic crisis. Anwar demanded that the UMNO-led government respond by adopting the economic policies required by the IMF, a process he had begun as finance minister. He was seeking to further open up the economy to foreign investment and maintained a high interest rate regime, which was threatening to bring down major Malaysian corporations, including some closely allied to Mahathir and Daim.

Last September Mahathir responded by sacking the Bank Negara head and implemented a series of capital and currency controls including the suspension of offshore trading of the Malaysian ringgit, a fixed exchange rate and restrictions on the repatriation of profits by foreigners in share trading. When Anwar refused to accept the changes and refused to resign, Mahathir sacked and then expelled him from UMNO. After Anwar launched a nationwide campaign calling for Mahathir’s removal, he was arrested under the Internal Security Act and then finally changed with corruption and sexual misconduct.

The bitter dispute first surfaced in the June 1998 at the general assembly of UMNO. Anwar tried to appeal to the resentment of smaller Malay business interests who were going to the wall, while those close to UMNO were being bailed out by government money. He and his supporters called for the government to “cleanse society of collusion, corruption and nepotism”.

Mahathir responded at the time by producing a list of business interests connected to Anwar, who had benefited from state largesse. The message was clear: pursue this anti-corruption campaign and you will end up being investigated for financial malpractice. A little over a year later, the Mahathir government seems to be carrying out the threat.

Umno lost its way under Najib, says Tamrin Ghafar – NEWS/COMMENTARIES – Saturday, 07 July 2012 Super Admin

(The Malaysian Insider) – Already facing possible expulsion, Tamrin Ghafar, the son of former deputy prime minister and Umno strongman Tun Ghafar Baba, has again criticised the party’s leadership for straying from its “original struggle”.

The former Bukit Berendam MP told The Malaysian Insider last night that, under Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s leadership, Umno has been trampling on the rights of Malaysians instead of defending them.

“Umno has strayed from the original struggle of its forefathers, who had prioritised the people more.

“Under Najib, Umno has stolen its people’s rights, instead of defended it,” he said.

He expressed disappointment that, since Najib succeeded Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi in 2009, both the directions of Barisan Nasional (BN) and Umno have changed drastically.

Tamrin, who has recently been active on Pakatan Rakyat’s (PR) political stage, confirmed he had received a show-cause letter from Umno’s disciplinary committee on June 26 demanding he explain his criticisms against Najib’s leadership.

He has declined to reply, however, saying he would prefer to meet with the committee to explain his reasons “face to face”.

“I’ve been given 14 days to respond. But I refuse to do so in writing. Instead, I am seeking to meet with the committee to explain my actions to them personally,” he said, despite acknowledging that this may result in his sacking.

When asked of his plans to join other parties should he be sacked, Tamrin said he was yet to make a decision.

“Let’s wait for the committee’s decision first. I have not thought about joining other parties yet,” he added.

Tamrin first made an appearance in an opposition-backed event during a pre-Bersih 3.0 rally held in April at Kelab Sultan Sulaiman in Kampung Baru here.

Since then, the leader has been an active participant of PR events, and has even written to Najib to air his views on how Umno could recapture public support.

Tamrin’s father, Ghafar, had been deputy prime minister during the Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s administration and had served under four prime ministers, including Tun Abdul Razak, who is Najib’s father.

The late Ghafar had also been the Malacca chief minister for some eight years from 1959 to 1967 although he had originally declined the post offered to him by Tunku Abdul Rahman.

Mahathir, a racist and Malay chauvinist – TRUE OR FALSE? – Written by Christopher Fernandez, Malaysia Chronicle – Friday, 06 July 2012 09:14

The nation of Malaysia has reached the crossroads after years of suffering much anguish and pain in the hands of being ruled by Barisan Nasional. The extent of anguish and pain that Malaysians have suffered in the hands of BN cannot be fully quantified or assessed as yet.

However, what is certain is the way and manner of governing Malaysia since the days of the establishment of the Mahathir regime which has definitely witnessed a major blow and setback for democracy and race relations.

The real “pengkhianat Bangsa Melayu”?

It is an undeniable fact that while Mahathir governed Malaysia with impunity, he was also guilty of being a racist and a Malay chauvinist.

By often calling upon and using the racial card, he caused gullible and unsuspecting Malays and other bumiputras to believe that their common enemy is the non-bumiputras especially the Chinese and Indians.

But the blow to his racial ploy was only apparent with the return of globalisation to the fore.

When the world decided to go global, Mahathir’s racial ploys backfired and blew up in his face. The Malays were found not to have the competitive edge in being able to compete in a globalised environment as they were rendered weak by being fully dependent on the BN government for assistance and aid.

By causing Malays and bumiputras to become soft in their belly, an underclass society actually, it is really Mahathir Mohammad who is truly the “pengkhianat Bangsa Melayu” (the traitor to the Malays), and not Anwar Ibrahim, which Perkasa should take note.

Played his cards badly

Many Malays after this went into a dither, upon globalisation taking place, and if they are managing today, it is because of the continued and able support being given by non-bumiputras to them.

In reality, the Chinese and the Indians are pragmatic and wise in seeing that if the Malays and bumiputras become unbalanced economically there will be chaos in the country.

Mahathir however played his cards very badly. He instilled in Malays and bumiputras a fear that the real threat to their well being are the Chinese and Indians who are out to rob them of their share of the economic pie.

This caused race relations to go back to the dark ages with Mahathir behaving more Malay than the Malays themselves in wanting to seemingly safeguard and defend them.

Created a situation where he did not have to answer to anyone

Mahathir went out of his way to dispel any notion that he has links with Indian ancestry in an attempt to be seen as the sole champion and custodian of Malay rights. In doing so, he used the Chinese and Indians as the bogeys to frighten the Malays and bumiputras.

By promoting racism and Malay chauvinism, Mahathir was able to secure the Malay vote bank and win general elections over the years of his rule with commanding victories.

However, the fallout with his deputy, Anwar Ibrahim, over the devaluation of the Malaysian ringgit because of Mahathir gambling with funds obtained from Bank Negara Malaysia in the currency market spelt the beginning of the end of his so-called legacy.

Mahathir caused Anwar to be the scapegoat to cover for his misdeeds and acts of blatant corruption as he governed Malaysia without having to be answerable or accountable to anyone. He was governing Malaysia as a man above the law.

Cronyism and cronyism

During the tenure of his premiership, Mahathir established a BN-crony network to create the minority elite in this country while most Malays and bumiputras looked forward to a token value of financial progress.

Besides this, he staffed and employed most Malays by absorbing them into the civil service and offering them terms and conditions of service that were second-to-none despite a poor and low productivity rate and output by the civil service.

This was another of his ploys to curry favour with the Malays and to assure himself of their votes. As it stands, the racial composition of the staffing and employment of the overly-bloated civil service in this country is a blatant example and reflection of his acts of racism and chauvinism.

This is why more and more ordinary Malaysians have come to the realisation and recognition that Mahathir is perhaps more to be known as Bapa Rasuah (the father of corruption) than Bapa Pembangunan (the father of development).

A legacy of evil?

Mahathir’s skewering and tinkering with the politics and policies in this country has caused rising anger and resentment against him owing to numerous allegations of atrocities and abuses committed by him and his henchmen in the country.

Only by him and his cronies being brought before an international tribunal of justice can Malaysians be assured that the crimes he committed in this country towards Malaysians can come to the fore without people being fearful of reprisal.

While expecting justice and fair play by a competent court of justice in this country or even establishing a Royal Commission of Inquiry into his crimes and misdeeds might not lead to justice being seen to be done, Malaysians must bring him to book in an independent court abroad where his reach and influence is not there.

While Mahathir claims he does not fear death but evil, the evil he has spawned in this country is enough to convince and convict right-thinking Malaysians that his evil legacy is already in tatters for the coming generations to study as facts of history.

Will PM Najib impose TERM LIMITS on MPs to remove all the nepotists and oligarchs and plutocrats, putting the RAMAN series of apartheid PM’s to a high end note, exhonerate UMNO and raise Malaysians to a state of equality? Use that mandate or BN is finished and PR might try to destroy BN’s ‘personalities’ after winning (including C4 users . . . ) End the Sin of Asabiya and comply with the UNHCR Articles.

SHOCKING parenting by Dr M: Tells Marina to behave herself and be sensitive to Mukhriz Featured Written by  Wong Choon Mei, Malaysia Chronicle – Friday, 29 June 2012 17:21

Fresh from publicly endorsing his son Mukhriz for the Kedah chief minister’s seat, former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad next trained his sights on his daughter – Marina.

Urging the sometimes outspoken Marina to be ‘sensitive’ of how her often liberal behavior could affect her brother’s political chances, the 86-year-old Mahathir revealed for the first time his parenting skills to the nation.

And it is clear, as far as the Mahathir family goes, politics come first.

“I do hope she will realise what she is doing is not good for herself, not good for the government party at least. She should also be sensitive about her brother who is contesting in the election,” Mahathir said during an interview with online television station The Malaysian Observer (MobTV).

He had been asked to comment on Marina, an AIDS/HIV activist and open supporter of the Bersih rallies for clean elections – two issues that Mahathir is openly and vehemently against but which Marina apparently endorses.

Drawing a line

Just a day ago, Mahathir warned that allowing the LGBT community rights would lead to the end of ‘mankind’.

Today, he publicly warned his daughter not to get carried away with her volunteer work and end up fighting for the rights of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender folk.

“She never said she supports this; I hope she doesn’t. She cared for this people but she has to draw a line between them and the idea that being homosexual is okay, or men marrying men is okay,” said Mahathir.

The former PM who ruled Malaysia for 22 years from 1981 to 2003 also let slip he did not like Marina to associate herself with Bersih, the movement for free and fair elections as he believed it had been hijacked by the opposition.

However, Mahathir skirted the issue of whether he supported the principle of clean polls. This is not surprising given that his critics have often accused him of massive gerrymandering and even offering citizenship to foreign workers if they voted to keep his Umno-BN coalition in power.

Typical big-mouth Asian dad?

And in reminding Marina to be ‘sensitive’ for Mukhriz’s sake, Mahathir revealed his own insensitivity not only by putting his daughter’s interests lower than her brother’s, but also by blaring to the public that she had “no ambition”.

“She doesn’t care about what people think. I care about what people think. If not, I won’t get anywhere,” said Mahathir.

“Maybe it’s because she has no ambition so she speaks her mind. I cannot agree with the things she is doing, but nowadays you cannot tell your children ‘please stop this, please stop that’; they have a mind of their own.”

Marina is Mahathir’s eldest child and despite his current obsession in making sure Mukhriz lands the Kedah chief minister’s post, it is well-known that she is his favorite offspring and their father-and-daughter relationship enviably strong.

Nonetheless, it would be interesting to ask Marina what she thinks of her dad’s latest comments – has his thinking become antiquated with age or is he just another Asian dad, cherishing the sons as serious business and the daughters – mere decoration!

Malaysia Chronicle

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

False flag argument intended to ‘suck in’ those who fall for this nepotistic lot. Marina is playing ‘good cop’ for the Iskandar Kutty family. Mahathir Iskandar Kutty Jr plays bad cop. At the end of the day this is ANOTHER family bloc with Marina living comfortably off Mahathir’s corruption begotten wealth while the rest of the country struggles. Family is just that biased and this is why there are ethical concerns about family member infested parliaments – any family should know this and families in politics is just nonsense. Marina wins either way has already benefiteds off the taxpayers’ funds that Mahathir took –  AND if the readers read on any headings in this blog about Marina, the readers will find that Marina is a crypto-racist who has withheld commitment of any clear word against apartheid along side cynical though well informed ‘top blogger’ RPK.

No Reason For KLIA2 To Cost RM5 Billion – Friday, 06 July 2012 00:09

KUALA LUMPUR — Suggestions that KLIA2, the new low-cost terminal at Sepang, near here, will cost RM5 billion because of cost overruns appear to be misguided, say sources close to the project.

They said that costs could rise to RM5 billion if certain parties dictated terms to Malaysia Airports Holdings Bhd (MAHB) to build additional facilities not in the current plan.

“As of now, everything is under control and the cost of construction will remain at RM3.9 billion,” said one of the well-placed sources.

On claims that the airport would not be completed by its deadline of April 2013, the sources said that construction was on schedule and it was not a question of whether the airport would be ready on time but whether the operators of low-cost airlines could get their act together by then.

It is understood that certain systems for the check-in counters have yet to be submitted to MAHB although the deadline was June 15 this year.

In addition, there are also questions whether facilities undertaken by other parties (not MAHB) like hotels and office buildings would be ready by the second quarter of next year.

The sources said KLIA2 could have been completed this year if not for last-minute requests by certain quarters which consequently extended the schedule.

They said that the costs had also gone up from the original RM2 billion because of requests for additional facilities.

Originally, KLIA2 was to be only a two-storey high building, but this has been increased to an equivalent of nine storeys for a three-level terminal comprising separate departure, arrival and ground support equipment areas.

This meant that the gross floor area of the terminal building has been increased by 71 per cent to 257,000 sq metres from the original 150,000 sq metres.

The sources said the KLIA2 would be the world’s largest purpose-built low- cost terminal with a capacity to accommodate 45 million passengers annually.

They said it was also being built at the lowest cost per passenger with aerobridges and enhanced passenger convenience.

“With the aerobridges, passengers need not walk on the apron anymore,” they added.

They said although industry standards dictated that 55 boarding gates would be sufficient to handle 30 million pasengers annually, MAHB had accommodated requests to increase the number of boarding gates to 68.

MAHB had also made provisions for a fully automated baggage handling system although there had been earlier requests for a non-fully automated one.

To cater for higher passenger traffic, MAHB had even drew up plans to accommodate the superjumbo Airbus 380 aircraft as well as premium lounges for enhanced passenger comfort.

Under its current construction plan, MAHB had also provided for the construction of four hotels and a public shopping mall next to the terminal.

Greedy politicians and proxy middlemen, taking taxpayer monies to fill their pockets. And that terminal will not be of much more use because Malaysia is already not a very interesting place to visit and is also full of apartheid and occasional fundos.

Don’t Resort To Insults, Guan Eng! – by Tee Siew Kiong – Thursday, 05 July 2012 16:58

Lim Guan Eng’s description of MCA Duyong assemblyman Gan Tian Loo as “uneducated” as reported in Chinese dailies yesterday is regretful, as he is a representative of the people and is responsible for making inquiries on issue which need clarification in the state assembly. Obviously, the Penang Chief Minister was caught in a humiliating situation and is now confused and helpless.

DAP’s style has always been to criticise, create lies and to incite the people to be against the ruling party. MCA has never insulted the opposition party leaders by calling them “uneducated”. However, it is interesting the Guan Eng will label elected representatives who pose questions to him during the state assembly as “uneducated.”

DAP will always heavily publicise any events which are favourable to them by they themselves try to prevent others from questioning them and when an issue turns out to be bad for their publicity they will then impose gag orders. DAP constantly finds creative ways to ensure that they look good in the news, but never has MCA labeled them as uneducated.

Therefore, DAP’s double standard behaviour is such that when they bring up issues involving BN they will call it democratic, but when provoked by BN they will refer to us as uneducated.

In DAP’s eyes, MCA is always wrong. But within DAP itself, there have been dissatisfaction. One example is the resignation of Tunku Abdul Aziz, formerly DAP Vice-Chairman, who in a radio interview had said that Guan Eng had attempted to get him to stay with a new job with a RM50,000 salary. Tunku Aziz also claimed that he had found this move insulting and was the main factor as to why he had decided to resign as he is unable to work with Guan Eng anymore.

This so-called ‘uneducated’ person from DAP has now expressed disappointment with DAP, thus proving that MCA members have more restraint while Guan Eng and his fellow DAP comrades are quick to insult their own members who have left.

Guan Eng must be careful and not simply insult the elected representatives of the people who are only seeking the truth. The circumstances surrounding this incident must be clarified before the rumours will stop circulating.

Land Survey System Nonsense and Unprofessionalism in Malaysia

More sh1t cake responses for the sh1t eating CMs and the so-called professionals who want to partake of ‘the cake’ (Any ‘hungry’ professionals should insult PERKASA, maybe they will send sh1t cakes . . . ). This government has set such a bad example that the bottom feeders like the above types have a false sense of where they stand, and need to be taken out of the system. Perhaps I’d file a complaint, but will need to install a recording system on the phone (look out for future audio posts here online where first hand rudeness will be on display). Rude and greedy ‘professionals’ need to eat what they spew, and believe me, potty mouthed surveyors do not deserve business but probably would fawn and kiss a$$es of bigger sh1t eaters who expect this sort of ‘bodek’ thing . . . and we all know how fat and corrupted some of these shameless unethical ‘downlines’ can get. 2 tongues and attitudes, one for each wealth set, boycott the worst of the so-called ‘professionals’ . . .

Being a professional body, the ethics behind acceptance of all jobs profitable, or non-profitable (larger jobs have economy of scale but smaller jobs do not) IS professional conduct. Porfessionalism thus demands that service must be provided to all citizens especially for access to something as basic as land survey services – the system does not have recommended timeframes and fee structures based around the land value, so professionals are in fact licensed to profiteer rather than serve the people.

More mentally ill posing as sane behind uncontrolled systems that allow unreasonable fees badges of professionalism will be described today . . . an uncivil Mr. ‘Eat Sh1t K’ (a land surveyor who  – speaks ‘officious ‘slick/slimy” and was named after the cuss term . . . probably aligned to our Sh1t Eating CM who knows . . . keep saying that favourite word ‘K’ and maybe someday K too will get sh1tcakes, and without needing to ask for 750K funerals . . . ) who insisted that the system was corrupt, and that Land Surveyors do not serve professionally if your land plot is not large enough. maybe K wanted to eat sh1t on behalf of the real sh1t eaters so threw that corupted mentality dead weight behind the term limiteless nepotists . . .

There must be legal provisions (which appear to be missing in Malaysia’s incomplete laws on registered profesional bodies) to protect and ensure access to such services for small estate holders as if the Land Survey Office does not allow unlicensed surveying and greedy among private Land Surveyors or other professionals are only interested in large jobs, ) is not something that the Rakyat in general is aware of or even needs to or is able or even properly positioned in a suitable socially fetted position (Malaysian value system is skewed so that none with the proper values are fetted somehow) to teach a supposed professional about. Professional bodies should understand the ethics behind this. Consider that when a neutral party person contacts a professional they expect not the face of blind greed, polarized politics but PROFESSIONALISM.

Others (one S.U.A. initialed company) were polite enough to decline outright (again still unprofessional but at least not ‘sh1t eating’ rude, this is not about money but about service) and being part of society and the only people doing such work Land Surveyors need to have laws that require Land Surveyors to charge according to the value of the land (not more than 1-2% at most, much like sales commission – they are merely sureying the land not even selling the land for you . . . ) regardless of the size – THAT would be professionalism – sickening 3rd worlders do not understand, sadly nor does the government which has not placed such requirements (much less understand or think about possibly) of ‘professionals’ to end up with a society favouring only ‘large jobs’ and making small holder’s lives impossible. Anything more than a sales agent’s 1-2% sales fee for survey is excessive. If a piece of land is worth 100K, charging 3K to 10K for demarcation or boundary stone laying is excessive. Timeframes for responses in Malaysia’s land offices btw are 3 mths, timeframes for demarcation and stone laying should be no more than 2 weeks to be reasonable, but in Malaysia we have cases going back 20 years . . . truly 3rd world.

One must be aware that in the land survey industry there are professionals that are propping up the apartheid system, intent on frustratiung the public at large with their ill inclined natures while hiding behind a professional’s status. Let’s put the whole issue this way, Professionals get the bulk of the cash from big  player owners and by means of service and even at a loss provide the small owners the same service on cognizance that the profits from high paying large owners will outweigh the losses from (probably less cost effective, may not even be losses here) small owners overall. A professional does not pick and choose, a professional does ALL jobs and that is the basis for ‘professionalism’. Watch those little graduates who grow into the above nuisances that choke up society, identify the same and do not allow them to profit off the voters!

More ‘Malaysiana’, courtesy this time of the so-called ‘professionals’ among Malaysian Land Surveyors, no thanks to a Land Survey Office that does not survey so that the ‘professionals’ can abuse citizens with extreme fees and a lack of seperation of online and real life scenarios and behaviours . . . we learn more everyday, and again Malaysians and Malaysia does not fail to disappoint.

Paradise lost for Tunku Aziz? — Tay Tian Yan – May 12, 2012

MAY 12 — As widely expected, Tunku Abdul Aziz’s senatorship was not extended by the DAP.

As if that is not enough, he also finds himself coming under scornful assaults and branded a traitor. The disciplinary committee demanded an explanation from him, and some in the party wanted him removed.

Tunku Abdul Aziz joined the DAP three years ago in the midst of widespread cheers, making him the highest positioned and most reputed Malay member the DAP had had since its inception.

He was offered the party’s vice-presidency, and thanks to his popularity, the party experienced unprecedented metamorphosis to become a truly multiracial entity.

The cold treatment accorded to him has stemmed solely from his dissident views on the Berish 3.0 rally.

I have no intention of getting myself embroiled in the rally controversy any more. All that has come to my mind is a story I have read some time ago.

John Milton was a 17th-century English writer, second probably only to William Shakespeare in literary supremacy. His time-honoured epic “Paradise Lost” underscored the fall of humanity in the pursuit of freedom, quoting the chapter in Genesis where Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden of Eden.

In “Paradise Lost” there are the Heaven, the Hades; the Angels, the Satan; the Darkness, the Light; the Exaltation, the Decadence.

Wasn’t the April 28 rally a vivid reflection of “Paradise Lost”?

Milton had his own real-life experiences.

He met, fell for and later married 15-year-old Mary Powell at the age of 32.

After their marriage, he discovered they could not actually get along well. His young wife went back to her mother’s house, not returning for the following three years.

He wanted to put an end to the dysfunctional marriage, but was barred from doing so by the Church then.

Out of desperation he penned the famous Divorce Tracts, declaring true matrimony to be a marriage of body and mind, but if the body and mind have become dissociated, people should no longer be bonded by the covenant of marriage as this would contravene human nature and the will of freedom.

As such, he said, everyone should be entitled to the freedom of divorce.

His doctrine could possibly be accepted by people today, but not three centuries ago.

He was suppressed and locked up for his heretical thinking.

Milton was least subdued, instead his ordeal energised him to think profoundly about the true meaning of freedom. In the “Areopagitica” he later published, he proposed the theory of self-rectification of truth, arguing that only with the freedom of speech would truth become more explicit with arguments. The so-called “truth” that has been erected through oppression would never be able to pass the test of time and become the real truth.

At the same time, Milton also advocated the freedom of thought, declaring that no one — be it a regime, political party or individual — has the privilege of scrutinising a person’s freedom of speech or thought on condition it does not pose any harm to other people.

Milton’s freedom of speech has since become the harbinger of democratic politics.

Like anyone else in this world, Tunku Abdul Aziz is entitled to the freedom of speech, and the DAP’s action against him only attests to the democratic qualities and bearings this party holds. — mysinchew.com

Look here, Tay Tianyan, ingenuously fetting DAP’s lack of democracy as democracy! No honest political party will dare to fire anyone for speaking freely. I am very sorry that I ever fetted DAP in the past at all, and realise that nepotistic and term limitless DAP is as bad as, if not worse than BN and BN’s lapdogs. Shame on you Tay Tian Yan for being a blind propagandist without ethics! DAP is a political party that shold be wiped off the map of Malaysia and the world. Anywhere there are people who think and behave like the Lim Kit Siang and Karpal SIngh led party need to be barred for politics. They are self serving political animals in human guise and Tay Tianyan as well. Little wonder the apartheid state of the Chinese and Indians in Malaysia. Neither DAP nor MCA nor MIC have ever spoken against apartheid prioritising their own political safety first. I recommend that all voters vote for 3rd Force parties instead/

How about Tunku lead the 3rd Force and drop these bunch of unethical nepotistic and uninclusive Pakatan losers who steal and parrot ideas instead of giving credit where is due. Have at Pakatan! And BN is an apartheid party so corrupt that the Human Rights Council should be shamed for allowing Malaysia to be a member of the Human Rights panel. Idiot politicians! 3rd Force when are you making your move? get together at some stupid venue and start organising yourselves, we had enough of the term limitless, nepotistic family blocs and selfishness of Pakatan and the racism and corruption of BN!

How about this below social contract?

Hisham lying over parties wanting deaths at Bersih, says Kit Siang – By Shannon Teoh – May 12, 2012

KUALA LUMPUR, May 12 — Lim Kit Siang accused Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein of “spreading lies” after the home minister alleged that some parties wanted serious injuries and deaths to occur at the April 28 Bersih rally.

The DAP parliamentary leader pointed out that the Umno vice president had dismissed on April 19 the planned sit-in for free and fair elections, saying it was not a security threat and had little traction with the public.

“I urge Hishammuddin to stop spreading lies and falsehoods about Bersih 3.0 as his allegation that some parties wanted serious injuries and deaths is most wild, irresponsible and deplorable.

“If Hishamuddin received ‘intelligence’ that there were ‘some parties’ who wanted serious injuries and deaths to occur at Bersih 3.0, he was then seriously remiss and negligent in his duties as home minister when he publicly declared that Bersih 3.0 rally posed no ‘security threat’,” the Ipoh Timor MP said.

Hishammuddin told students earlier today that his biggest fear ahead of the April 28 rally for free and fair elections was the possibility of serious injuries and fatalities. “I was relieved there were none. But there were some parties who wanted that to happen,” he said over lunch at Sunway Hotel here.

Lim (picture) also said in a press statement that Datuk Seri Najib Razak must also be asked if he had received ‘intelligence’ to back the prime minister’s claim that Bersih 3.0 was an attempted coup d’etat to topple the government.

“Or was the ‘intelligence’ about an attempted coup to topple the government, like Hishammudin’s latest allegation, purely political in nature, concocted after April 28 to enable the Barisan Nasional to demonise the Bersih 3.0 organisers and protestors?” he said.

He added that Putrajaya’s probe into violence during the Bersih rally must be in the form of a royal commission of inquiry instead of the proposed panel headed by Tun Hanif Omar as the former police chief had disqualified himself by making anti-Bersih statements.

The April 28 rally, which saw tens of thousands gather at six different locations before heading to Dataran Merdeka, was peaceful until about 2.30pm when Bersih chief Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan asked the crowd to disperse. But her call was not heard by most of the crowd who persisted around the historic square which the court had already barred to the public over the weekend.

Just before 3pm, some protestors breached the barricade surrounding the landmark, leading police to disperse the crowd with tear gas and water cannons.

Police then continued to pursue the rally-goers down several streets amid chaotic scenes which saw violence from both sides over the next four hours.

Several dozen demonstrators have claimed that they were assaulted by groups of over 10 policemen at a time and visual evidence appears to back their claim but police also point to violence from rally-goers who also attacked a police car.

The police car then crashed into a building before some protestors flipped it on its side.

Return the favor, Ambiga and Guan Eng: Offer Ibrahim Ali a nice ‘char siew pau’ – by @donplaypuks – Friday, 11 May 2012 19:32

The two demonstrations, one by Perkasa outside Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng’s house, and the other by Ikhlas oustide Ambiga’s, of Bersih fame, mark a new low in Malaysian politics. The demonstrators, and their yellow backers in the corridors of BUMNO/BN, have appealed to the lowest common denominator among the worst in their ranks – racism, demagoguery and thuggery!

Given also that our law enforcers (not just the police, but also City Hall officials) stood by and did nothing to disperse these illegal gatherings, while at Bersih 3.0 they opened direct fire at crowds with tear gas and pepper-laced water without justifiable provocation, it’s clear what we have is a rogue regime that MUST be booted out at the next general elections, if we wish to preserve the sanctity of our democratic institutions.

Rogue regime

Why rogue regime? Because we have a Prime Minister (PM) who is implicated up to his eyeballs in the $7 billion Scorpene Submarine financial scandal (he was also the Defence Minister who signed the contracts) and who 5 years onwards, has not ordered the Inspector General of Police to investigate, identify and charge the person who gave the orders to murder Altantuya and blow up her body into bits and pieces with C4 plastics, generally available only to the Army, and perhaps, the Terrorist Squad of the Police. PM Najib has not done so despite the convicted murderers of Altantuya confessing to the police that they were offered $100,000 (by whom?) to carry out their heinous act!

This is not mere uncouth behaviour by Perkasa and Ikhlas. Their intention is to instill mafia-type fear through intimidation, thuggery and gangsterism! The gall of it, for Ikhlas to offer a hamburger to Ambiga who is a vegetarian. Imagine if Ambiga or Guan Eng had offered a pork bun to Ibrahim Ali. But that is a minor matter.

What is at issue is whether Perkasa and Ikhlas considered the fear and terror they would have instilled, not in Ambiga’s and Gua Eng’s hearts, for they are made of sterner stuff, but in the hearts of children and the elderly living in those homes and that of their innocent neighbours.

Yes, give Ibrahim Ali a pork bun and see what sort of reaction…

Of course Ikhlas and its petty traders will maintain that the Bersih 3.0 rally on 28th April 2012 caused them huge financial losses and they have their rights. Yes, they have their rights and no one disputes that. However, the courts are the rightful place to take their grievances to, not the homes of their perceived antagonists.

Frankly, I doubt these hamburger patty-mentality lackeys will dare open up their books to be audited independently by the courts to justify any claims.

Similarly, the Opposition in Penang – BUMNO/BN – were defeated in the State Asembly by the very same tactics and open and democratic procedures that they had employed from 1957-2007, when they were in power. Their allegations that Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng had cast slurs on BUMNO/BN by saying that more Hindu temples would be torn down if BUMNO/BN were in power, was not borne out by official Hansard transcripts of the debate in the State Assembly. That calls for an invasion of Guan Eng’s home and incantations of a death wish?

So, how do we read the situation?

It’s obvious they are being stirred up by other cravenly cowards and Nazi and Stalinistic elements within BUMNO/BN. Has the unelected mayor of KL who pontificated to Bersih 3.0 about laws and municipal by-laws or our unelected PM Najib or BUMNO/BN politicians and former IGP’s come out and publicly condemned these blatant and dangerously precedent setting invasions of an individual’s privacy, as they (wrongly) did with Bersih 3.0? They are playing with fire and when it’s they who get burnt, who shall they then lay the blame on?

They silently wish and pray Guan Eng, Ambiga, Bersih and Pakatan would all quietly disappear. Let me assure these pathetic troglodytes that all their pilgrimages and prayers will not deliver them victory because they represent pure, unadulterated evil against the might of Pakatan, Ambiga, Guan Eng et al who stand on the side of the righteous!

BUMNO/BN is also being shown up by the new State governments, in particular, Penang and Selangor, that where the leaders are incorruptible, desirable progress will naturally follow. So, it’s not surprising that the Pakatan states combined have attracted more Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) in four years than all the BUMNO/BN ruled States put together, and praised by the BUMNO/BN appointed Auditor General for that as well as for their transparency and accountability.

Now, that’s what you call real progress and achievement – when your are grudgingly congratulated by independent parties for your successes. BUMNO/BN leaders are too seduced by the bootlicking and scrotum tickling antics of its sycophantic and demanding ‘give me a billion ringgit contract’ supporters.

No second thought – just dump BN!

This is what grates on BUMNO/BN’s behind more than anything else, like sandpaper on rock. The Pakatan States have shown in four years what progress we could have achieved, had we not allowed ourselves to succumb to 32 years of financial mayhem and utter corruption and waste involving hundreds of billions of ringgit under the BUMNO/BN aegis.

And if this is the best they can do, by trying to frighten and intimidate the citizenry, then I say, bring it on. You will scare no one, because it is your own fear that motivates you, not any concern for truth, justice or democracy!

The lowest common denominator you appeal to – racism, demagoguery, religious bigotry and thuggery – will be contemptibly rejected by all right thinking citizens, without a second thought!

Hey @dontplaypuks Guan Eng has just lowered himself to that very level by sending a pork bun to a Muslim. If Guan Eng were a gentleman Guan Eng would have prepared a delegation to the UN undeer the CM’s office to challenge APARTHEID. That Guan ENg prefers to send offensive food, makes Guan Eng little more than a sad clown that does not use the CM’s mandate to any good.

We don’t need this sort of leader like Guan Eng. File that lawsuit or send delegations to the UN, NAM or BRICS morons. Why do the Sultans put up with Guan Eng’s cockbaiting of a group like PERKASA? More b.s. that can lead to hegelian eclectic inspired ‘riots’ and then a freeze on social freedoms. Guan Eng is an idiot to play this sort of game. Ibrahim Ali, please take this a man to man insult and give Guan Eng what Guan Eng needs most. A good ass whacking with whatever food item Guan Eng hates.

But since Guan Eng eats sh1t cakes, PERKASA might have a hard time deciding which food item to use against Guan Eng. Serious leaders on all sides, please send that delegation to the UN to end apartheid.

This idiocy involving pork, Guan Eng and PERKASA is just too much of a tragic comedy and a waste of a CM’s mandate. Nepotism and limitless terms breeds char siew bao sending idiocy that does not end the lack of . . .

‘Funeral’ for Guan Eng and burger stall for Ambiga: THIS IS UMNO-BN! – Written by YM CM Lim Guan Eng – Friday, 11 May 2012 12:48

DAP condemns the “burger protest” by pro-BN and anti-Bersih supporters, which set up an illegal burger stall outside Bersih co-chairperson Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan’s house to protest against their claims of purported loss of income suffered due to the Bersih 3.0 rally on 28 April 2012.

Is rule of law in Malaysia now replaced by rule of the jungle?

I fail to understand how DBKL can allow a burger stall to be set up outside a private residence with impunity in Kuala Lumpur?

By failing to act against the “burger protest” set up illegally outside Datuk Ambiga’s house, BN and DBKL is subjecting her to undue harrassment, intimidation and invasion of privacy. Will DBKL allow a similar protest outside the private home of Ministers or the DBKL’s Mayor residence?

Such an act of harrassment, intimidation and invasion of privacy has no place in our peaceful country, where Malaysians live together in mutual harmony and respect.

Moreover, the symbolic act of setting up burger stalls and cooking meat as a protest outside Ambiga’s home is extremely disrespectful considering that the former Bar Council president is a vegetarian.

As Ambiga herself noted yesterday, such acts have “never happened in Malaysia, except to Lim Guan Eng. Now Lim Guan Eng and I have had our homes violated.”

Funeral rite

Yesterday, my own family’s privacy was invaded by a group of Perkasa members who performed a “funeral rite” intruding on my private space, by placing on my gate a garland of flowers over a framed photo of me to signify my “death”.

Clearly this is the first time that such a death “wish” or death “threat” is made against a Chief Minister. What is equally clear is that the police present were indifferent and did not stop the Perkasa members from violating my private space.

It is the right of every Malaysian to be able to protest his or her own issues, but to do so by intruding into personal space and invading the privacy of family homes or wishing for the death of anyone is utterly vile, completely disrespectful and contrary to the basic tenets of democracy.

DAP calls on BN and DBKL to immediately remove the stall outside Datuk Ambiga’s home as a mark of respect towards not only to democracy and rule of law but to establish and uphold civil society.

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

I’d say open up underwear shops and a karang guni or shoe repair as well. Throw in a toddy seller and butcher for good measure as well – just for not speaking on APARTHEID as well as for dumping on rightful  MB of Perak Nizar when Ambiga was Bar Council President.

Bersih fails, nothing was achieved! All that limelight and all Ambiga does is flounder like an unknown blogger with no friends! We don’t need this sort of leader like Ambiga. File that lawsuit or send delegations to the UN, NAM or BRICS to END APARTHEID moron.

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism (Article 1 Human Rights Charter)
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. (Article 18 Human Rights Charter)

What the hell is Lim Guan Eng arguing about a burger stall or respect when Lim Guan Eng should be demanding the END OF APARTHEID? People are earning their liveihood and all DAP wants is to destroy their livelihood or fine people who build awnings and write false news. END APARTHEID! Or give over that CM’s post!

CONTACT UN, CONTACT NAM – END APARTHEID. Or Ambiga should relinquish leadership of Bersih to someone who knows how to wield that ‘riot causing power’ properly! Meanwhile Guan Eng should – CONTACT UN, CONTACT NAM, CONTACT BRICS – END APARTHEID.

Lawyers pour scorn on ‘stupid’ Bar – NEWS/COMMENTARIES – Saturday, 12 May 2012 Super Admin

A vocal few criticise the Bar Council for not being apolitical and failing to take note of the violence perpetrated by the protesters during the Bersih 3.0 rally.

(Free Malaysia Today) – Several lawyers have accused the Bar Council of supposedly siding with both Bersih and the opposition.

They argued that the Bar focused only on police brutality and failed to note the violence caused by protesters during the April 28 Bersih 3.0 rally.

Selangor Bar member Abdul Bakar Sidek attacked the Council, calling it a “political group” of the opposition.

“They come here [and] just want to pass a resolution. They just want to talk about police brutality but they never talk about public brutality towards the police!” he told reporters angrily.

This happened minutes after the Bar Council ended its extraordinary general meeting (EGM) on the Bersih 3.0 rally, where they passed a resolution condemning heavy-handed police action on that day.

Abdul Bakar asked why the resolution omitted instances of protester violence.

“I do not agree with police brutality but at the same time we do have to adhere that the police are also victims of the public and the stupid Bersih.

“…I am ashamed to be a member of the Bar, I wish I had an alternative [to the Bar]. I came just to say, ‘Why you need to gather by the roadside like a pariah?’”

“…I wish the government can give us an alternative [to the Bar, because] a lot of my friends do not want to be a member of this stupid Bar!” he shouted.

While he was speaking to reporters, a few lawyers taunted Abdul Bakar, chanting, “Bersih 4!”

In response to this, he said: “You see? Is this a forum of professionals? They want a Bersih 4.0, [but] they are just a bunch of idiots!”

Abdul Bakar later claimed that he had a younger sister, who in her capacity as a policewoman, was attacked by protesters that day.

He also blamed Bersih co-chairperson S Ambiga of shoring up publicity in a bid to “create havoc.”

Of the 1,270 Bar members who attended today’s EGM, 939 voted in favour of today’s resolution, while 16 voted against.

The rest either left the venue before the event ended or did not take part in the vote.

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

Selangor Bar member Abdul Bakar Sidek attacked the Council, calling it a “political group” of the opposition.

Does Abdul assent to the below 3 items?

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism (Article 1 Human Rights Charter)
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. (Article 18 Human Rights Charter)
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. (Surah An Nisa 4:75)

Because if Abdul doesn’t, some Bar Council member might want to demand that foreign University which granted any a degree to have that same degree removed for being a supporter of APARTHEID. But true, marching is stupid. File lawsuits, more so the Bar Council!!!

‘The rest either left the venue before the event ended or did not take part in the vote.’

File lawsuits against the Bar Council committee instead of ‘leaving without voting’! Leaving without voting is irresponsible. In fact a simple 14,000+ letters sent to all members of the Bar Council that will be legally actionable not to respond to should be applied for every single quorum. The 900+ people who voted DO NOT COUNT as they are less than 10% of the Bar! Isn’t there a mailing department the Bar Council could use to send a YES/NO/’Other-pls-state’ form to these 14,000 ‘ponteng’ lawyers or at least ensure 66.6% voted? No need to set up a ‘Bar Academy’ at cost to the Rakyat (more contractor collusion). A simple change in the Bar Council constitution about this sort of mandatory vote (2 week response time at least?) and even mandatory attendance of yearly EGM should be applied. We can’t have this sort of ‘ponteng vote’ or ‘ponteng EGM’ behaviour so that justified waste of tax monies in settying up ‘Bar Academies’ can be tabled in Dewan. Disappointing to know only 900+ out of 14,000 were reacheable! These are the people who write our laws? No wonder Malaysia is getting from bad to worse.

PAS can implement hudud with non-Pakatan parties’ – NEWS/COMMENTARIES – Saturday, 12 May 2012 Super Admin

(Malaysiakini) – PAS Ulama chief Harun Taib has said that amending the federal constitution to implement hudud will be its priority even if it means changing political partners, according to a New Straits Times report today.

“We will implement hudud and amend the constitution even if (it is) not with the current partners we have in Pakatan (Rakyat)… Maybe there will be other pacts that will lend us their support,” he was quoted as saying.

However, he did not name the non-Pakatan political parties, if any, which are in favour of hudud.

Harun added that as a party that champions Islam, it must do what is required by the religion, said the report.

According to the daily, Harun added that the implementation of hudud was inevitable should PAS win more seats than its Pakatan Rakyat partners.

“(PAS president) Hadi’s statement on hudud implementation and amending the constitution were done in his capacity as PAS president and they reflected PAS’ aspiration if the opposition wins the general election.”

The comments was in reaction to DAP chairperson Karpal Singh’s criticism of Hadi Awang who had allegedly said the party intends to incorporate hudud as a way of life in the federal constitution.

“I think whether it is against the constitution or not is just his (Karpal’s) personal opinion,” he said.

However, Hadi has denied making the statement.

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

Hudud is apartheid against fellow Malays USING Islam. PAS surely cannot be insisting on COMPULSION which is illegal in Islam! Case by case assent via signed agreements is reaqsonable but by the UNHCR no imposition of Hudud even on Malays is legal. PAS cannot do that without breaking some international treaties which Malaysia is a signmatory of. What IS PAS doing? Why is DAP silent like the grave (no pun intended, though 750K for a single PM and 120K for the same CM’s wife, is not worth selling out the entire minority to ignore ending APARTHEID for.)? Pakatan is a rubbish political party whenever this sort of thing happens. Is PAS trying to get Malaysia kicked out of the Human Rights Council? 3rd Force is the best choice!

As mentioned elsewhere, Hudud can only be applied on a case by case person by person acceptance. This is illegal and should be challenged by democratic Islamic scholars as ‘there can be no compulsion in religion‘ (Quran verse, Al Bakara 2:16). Such fatwas will be issued in a manner that compels. Islam if used as a political tool of control will damn any who do not follow the spirit of the Quran.

Bar Council: Ex-IGP unfit to lead panel – NEWS/COMMENTARIES – Saturday, 12 May 2012 Super Admin

The Bar Council president Lim Chee Wee says the former IGP disqualified himself by calling some of the Bersih 3.0 protesters communists.

(Free Malaysia Today) – The Bar Council said former Inspector General of Police Hanif Omar is not suitable to head the independent panel to probe the violence that took place during the Bersih 3.0 rally.

Speaking at a press conference after chairing the Bar Council’s extraordinary general meeting (EGM) today, its president Lim Chee Wee said Hanif had disqualified himself by taking a stand against Bersih 3.0 earlier.

“It’s unfortunate that the former IGP had referred to some of the protesters as communists,” he added.

On April 28, tens of thousands marched in the nation’s capital but the rally was marred with reports of police assaulting scores of protesters and journalists.

Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein announced the formation of the six-member panel on Wednesday with Hanif heading the investigation team.

However, Hanif had reportedly told the media earlier that some of the demonstrators were communists as he claimed to recognise their faces.

Meanwhile, Lim said he was disappointed when Hanif had alleged that the rally was aimed at overthrowing the government.

“In my view, panel member Steve Sim (former Sabah and Sarawak chief justice) is more qualified to head the panel,” he added.

What does attacking Hanif Omar do? NOTHING. Attacking a mere Hanif Omar is a sign of pettiness (also a Freudian slip of sorts, cult of prsonality vs. cult of personality indicating prioritsation of ego rather than actual democratic issues) when Bar Council Presidemt Lim Chee Wee could attack the lack of :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism (Article 1 Human Rights Charter)
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. (Article 18 Human Rights Charter)
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. (Surah An Nisa 4:75)

;via a formal delegation to UN, NAM, BRICS or even Sunnite Islam’s highest authority, the Al-Azhar Uni at Cairo. The above piece is a sure sign that Lim Chee Wee is NOT Bar Council President material at all, lack of logos but probably quite political minded () rther than impartial. Any blogger full of pathos could attack Hanif Omar or any VIP. Use that undeserved Bar Council Presidnet’s ethos or GTFO of the Bar Council Committee! Bar Council fails with sheer inability to even comprehend rhetoric, much less address DEMOCRACY to at least know the APARTHEID Bar Council President Lim Chee Wee being a minority now lives in! Pitiful and a waste of Bar Council’s mandate! No ‘Justice Baos‘ here, just ‘Char Siew Bao‘ level lawyers unable to address APARTHEID as above suggested but well able to argue about Burger Stalls and defending people like Ambiga who took out rightful MB of Pahang Nizar while in power as former President of Bar Council !

What kind of legal training did these characters receive? ‘Kopi’ degree is it? CONTACT UN, CONTACT NAM – END APARTHEID. One more word about Burger Stalls or Ambiga by the Bar Council and all Malaysians should recommend that the Bar Council’s degrees should be withdrawn for ignoring APARTHEID but making lots of noise about Burgers and Ambiga. Prepare that delegation to END APARTHEID and stop arguing about the ‘of secondary importance’ riots!

The most dangerous drug in the world: ‘Devil’s Breath’ chemical from Colombia can block free will, wipe memory and even kill – By Beth Stebner – PUBLISHED: 22:44 GMT, 12 May 2012 | UPDATED: 13:43 GMT, 13 May 2012

Scopolamine often blown into faces of victims or added to drinks
Within minutes, victims are like ‘zombies’ – coherent, but with no free will
Some victims report emptying bank accounts to robbers or helping them pillage own house
Drug is made from borrachero tree, which is common in Colombia

A hazardous drug that eliminates free will and can wipe the memory of its victims is currently being dealt on the streets of Colombia.

The drug is called scopolamine, but is colloquially known as ‘The Devil’s Breath,’ and is derived from a particular type of tree common to South America.

Stories surrounding the drug are the stuff of urban legends, with some telling horror stories of how people were raped, forced to empty their bank accounts, and even coerced into giving up an organ.

Danger: ‘The Devil’s Breath’ is such a powerful drug that it can remove the capacity for free will
Deadly drug: Scopolamine is made from the Borrachero tree, which blooms with deceptively beautiful white and yellow flowers

VICE’s Ryan Duffy travelled to the country to find out more about the powerful drug. In two segments, he revealed the shocking culture of another Colombian drug world, interviewing those who deal the drug and those who have fallen victim to it.

Demencia Black, a drug dealer in the capital of Bogota, said the drug is frightening for the simplicity in which it can be administered.

He told Vice that Scopolamine can be blown in the face of a passer-by on the street, and within minutes, that person is under the drug’s effect – scopolamine is odourless and tasteless.

‘You can guide them wherever you want,’ he explained. ‘It’s like they’re a child.’

Black said that one gram of Scopolamine is similar to a gram of cocaine, but later called it ‘worse than anthrax.’

In high doses, it is lethal.

It only takes a moment: One drug dealer in Bogota explained how victims are drugged within minutes of exposure

Victims: One Colombian woman said that under the influence of scopolamine, she led a man to her house and helped him ransack it

The drug, he said, turns people into complete zombies and blocks memories from forming. So even after the drug wears off, victims have no recollection as to what happened.

One victim told Vice that a man approached her on the street asking her for directions. Since it was close by, she helped take the man to his destination, and they drank juice together.

‘You can guide them wherever you want. It’s like they’re a child.’

She took the man to her house and helped him gather all of her belongings, including her boyfriend’s cameras and savings.

‘It is painful to have lost money,’ the woman said,’ but I was actually quite lucky.’

According to the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology, the drug – also known as hyoscine – causes the same level of memory loss as diazepam.

In ancient times, the drug was given to the mistresses of dead Colombian leaders – they were told to enter their master’s grave, where they were buried alive.

Devil’s Breath: The drug is odourless and tasteless and can simply be blown in the face of someone on the street; their free will vanishes after being exposed to it

Dangerous: Vice’s Ryan Duffy traveled to the capital of Bogota to find out more about the drug

In modern times, the CIA used the drug as part of Cold War interrogations, with the hope of using it like a truth serum.

However, because of the drug’s chemical makeup, it also induces powerful hallucinations.

The tree common around Colombia, and is called the ‘borrachero’ tree – loosely translated as the ‘get-you-drunk’ tree.

It is said that Colombian mothers warn their children not to fall asleep under the tree, though the leafy green canopies and large yellow and white flowers seem appealing.

Experts are baffled as to why Colombia is riddled with scopolamine-related crimes, but wager much of it has to do with the country’s torn drug-culture past, and on-going civil war.

This medical abuse in collusion with airelines (timed release devices installed within air conditioners in homes in hotels, in cars, introduced through office air vents etc..) . . .

‘You can guide them wherever you want,’ he explained. ‘It’s like they’re a child.’

This fact can be applied alongside hidden audio devices that can be turned on or time released to play ‘instructions’. I strongly believe that in certain states this is routinely done against political dissenters, also in apartheid states with access to the technology or chemicals.

Travel in enclosed spaces makes scopolamine poisoning or time released terrorism based on poisoning very easy. While the pilots space out, the plane goes down or the bus or train crashes.

Someone who apparently dabbled alot in spiritual practices that seemed to be I spoke to before once said :

‘I travel seldom and was well rested. One time I did travel by plane years ago, my soul was stolen by this woman . . . I had a nosebleed later . . . and it took sometime to extract the soul portion I lost.’

This is why people respect (fear) medical people in Asia including nurses. Probably this is also how medical people brainwash their ‘followers’ and become ‘politicians’ via access to the chemicals. Or on a longshot who knows even ‘Maid Agencies’ give employers the same drug to ‘control’ their ‘disobedient’ maids with (doubtless more abuse and rapes are never recorded if these classes of drugs are being used, the underground scene among youth for synthetics btw is out of control in some parts so the ‘legitimate’ use to control maids probably is even more rampant . . . )? I again repost the below postulation on what happened in DAP :

Here’s a spiritual theory. Karpal was set up by DAP via spiritual poison or use of scopolamine, and due to injuries and inability to recall chakras Karpal succumbed to manipulation by DAP. Without access to the lower chakras due to paralysis, Karpal was taken over by LKS and LGE not being able to fight back. The occult or medical technique probably is known to PAP, and now is mployed by DAP, most Penangites are under attack and attacking each other, the high density development paradigm of cities does not help, making people into hivelike drones. Hence the possible hero worship of the term limitless nepotists.

The medical professionals especially 3rd world based, are not always on the right path, greed, murder, and selfishness can be seen . . . Try http://peopleagainstopposition.blogspot.com/2011/04/tragedy-at-sekolah-agama-rakyat-al.html and get an idea of how Islam and the medical establishment are possibly at war in Malaysia, some of us neutrals just want to have non-Muslim rights to entertainment, human rights to equality, not be poisoned and ‘prayered’ to ill health by the ‘pious’ . . .

Penang has become a spiritually ill place that will see many of this generation go down as the a$$holes who caused Fukushima (extracted spirits tend to congregate near Nuke plants thinking their flesh body owners are dead, but they are NOT dead so they mistake Nuke plants as the ‘Light’ and gathered together to free the lost with the tsunami and other natural disasters, you see the spirits of the Earth far outnumber Man, and Man when led by plutocrats, term limitless, medical-psyche poisoners tend to offend the entire planet.).

Keep tormenting, nature knows where you live and who you all are . . . the abusers in the medical profession (why do they work housemen so hard and at such long shifts, is that to catch them unawares so that brainwashing can occur in the confines of the hospital, are there ‘black ops’ people in such places indoctrinating?), many temples and ‘places of worship’ are doomed and peopled by evil cultists in Asia. Any country that has national service or even enforces religion without freedom of choice (i.e. Buddhism, Islam) could well be responsible of these human rights abuses.

Superpower nations everywhere with MI6 departments that study this sort of thing, if this postulation is true, please do colonize in the name of Human Rights, there is no life without freedom as the Human  Rights Charter does not clearly state the above as an abuse or easily proves this. To be liberated we of conscience are all ready to turn against those who oppress us.

The refusal to do the bidding of evil minded creeps is clear, this is but a symptom of the sickness of society, this is not created by normal citizens, this is exhibit the symptoms of the ill treatment. Fukushima says so. The 100K+ deaths in Acheh attest, 6 generations for beheading, for this spiritual subjudice! That energy is NOT to be used by the profane and greedy who love money from funeral funds or who sell and spiritually murder fellow citizens in the name of religion. All spiritualists involved are DAMNED. The temples that fell, fell of their own neglect of apartheid against the minorities (the spirits LEFT the temple and the temples were forfeit) interference and presumption to disrupt the course of rightful history. Finally, it would seem that organic psychedelics could counter the effects of the above synthetic medications or even heal the effects of synthetics and should not only be considered for entertainment but more so healing as well.

A warning (no guesses to who), man’s spirituality is far beyond that of three 2700. 2000, 1400 year old egregores fueled by the wickedness of ‘pious’ society there are forces Eons old that are watching . . . the world can choose to be blighted by deserts or relinquish the souls stolen from innocent children, innocent people.

If incorrect, please feel free to debunk. We’d be very happy to know that this is not happening! Finally organic psychedelics appear to be able to counter the synthetic poisons or fortify against. We cannot ‘just trust society’ there must be an independent audit of the medical and psyche establishment, the government itself as well.

BN can win GE battle with money splash, says Dr Ling by Ida Lim May 14, 2012

KUALA LUMPUR, May 14 — Barisan Nasional (BN) could win the general elections because of unprecedented spending on the public, Tun Dr Ling Liong Sik told

Chinese newspaper Sin Chew Daily in an interview published today.

“I think BN can still win, because the government is spending money non-stop under different names, and this has never happened before,” he told Sin Chew in an exclusive interview.

Recently, the government has been spending heavily on various schemes to aid the public, including book vouchers for students and Bantuan Rakyat 1 Malaysia (BR1M).

A recent poll showed that the prime minister’s approval rating has surged by 10 per centage points to 69 per cent on the back of an improving economy and the cash handouts of RM500 to low-income households under BR1M.

Pollsters Merdeka Centre found that the prime minister’s support was highest among households earning less than RM1,500 a month at 78 per cent, with four-fifths of  Indians and 74 per cent of Malays also giving Najib the thumbs up.

However Dr Ling (picture) thinks that the effect of the BR1M aid on voters has “long faded”.

The former MCA president acknowledged the perception that Chinese voters did not view BN favourably.

“Generally speaking, Chinese are not good towards BN, but in Perlis there is no other choice (besides BN), (BN) may also lack support in Johor, but not to the point of  losing,” he was quoted as saying by Sin Chew.

Dr Ling said, however, that a failure to keep a supermajority in Parliament would not be a big problem, as he found nothing wrong with the public’s desire for change.

“A lot of things will change, the past example (March 2008) proved that things improved when there was a change, what’s the problem (with change)?”

“I think BN knows what kind of results they will face, they know this is a very hard battle,” he said, stressing that “this time the general elections is very hard and

difficult for BN.”

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

Not unless the voters identify BN’s trick first. Tax money musical chairs. Pass to the voter the money they took from the voter via taxes to make themselves look good, then tax more after they win! Thanks for the idea and warning Dr.Ling, but I think the voters are cleverer than what you think now (and lower those election deposits so that the poorest sweeper can be an MP, we look forward to 99%ter policies, not shameless MPs who ask for 750K funerals (at the Rakyat’s expense) from the same people who put their fathers in Kamunting and not address ENDING APARTHEID . . . ) . . .

Reflections of a world long gone – CERITALAH by Karim Raslan – Tuesday May 15, 2012 – newsdesk@thestar.com.my

Lawyer and diplomat PG Lim shows us she is very much the original lady activist through her colourful memoirs, Kaleidoscope.

WE are not a nation of writers. Malaysians aren’t great diarists or memoirists. Indeed, our collective Malaysian story – our national narrative – has tended to lose out in terms of subtlety, intimacy and diversity precisely because of this weakness.

However, the lawyer and diplomat PG Lim’s memoirs Kaleidoscope provides us with a superb addition to the dominant and at times tiresome, national narrative.

The book also reminds us that history is an accumulation of different stories, perspectives and experiences and that we are diminished as a people if we disregard the diversity at the very core of what it is to be Malaysian.

PG’s account is elegantly written, insightful and deeply felt. In Kaleidoscope, PG reveals a hitherto unknown talent as a story-teller as she weaves the great events of the 20th Century with her own personal triumphs and failures.

It’s also been an eye-opening read for someone such as myself, who’s known PG for nearly 30 years. The book has made me realise that she’s very much the original lady activist – a forerunner to Irene Fernandes, Zainah Anwar and even Teresa Kok – principled, unflinching and always, always on the side of the dispossessed and down-trodden.

Moreover, PG’s shift from activism and opposition politics to national service (she was to be an Ambassador for over nine years in New York, Vienna and Bruxelles) underlines both the high regard with which the establishment viewed her as well as the less divisive nature of politics back in the 60s and 70s.

Indeed PG (along with Tan Sri Dr Aishah Ghani) was one of only two women on the National Consultative Council which was set up by the National Operations Council in the wake of the May 13 riots and the suspension of the Malaysian Parliament.

Born in 1915 in London, the daughter of a prominent Penang-based lawyer, Lim Cheng Ean, and a British Guyana medical student, Rosaline Hoalim, PG grew up amidst great wealth and an enormously supportive family.

She studied at the famous Light Street Convent School before pursuing a law degree in Girton College, Cambridge, in the late 1930s.

PG was to be shaped by both her mother’s independent, strong-willed nature as well as her father’s well-known civic-mindedness (he served on the Straits Settlement Legislative Council alongside Tan Cheng Lok and H.H. Abdoolcader).

Indeed PG’s large posse of over-achieving and good-looking brothers and sisters have left an inedible stamp on Malaysian public life.

Entering legal practice after the Second World War, PG went on to carve a name for herself as a fearless lawyer and a champion for labour rights, at a time when plantation workers in particular were very poorly treated.

These earlier sections of the memoirs are the most illuminating and exciting. PG conjures up the rich, culturally intriguing milieu of Baba Nonya life in pre-War Penang, the uncertainty of the Japanese Occupation (not to mention the gutlessness and perfidy of the retreating British forces), as well as the exuberance of post-Independence life in Kuala Lumpur.

Along with the magisterial roll-out of history, PG also touches on her own personal disappointments. She’s unflinching in this regard as she recounts her two failed marriages: proof that successful women face multiple challenges.

PG never shied away from controversial or difficult cases, from Confrontation-era insurgents being threatened with the death penalty to trade unionists seeking better conditions for workers – there was no cause too big or too small for her.

Indeed, it’s interesting to compare the current trade union activism with the events of the 50s and 60s.

PG’s interests extended way beyond activism. She was a major stalwart of the Art’s Council which, in turn, became the nucleus of Malaysia’s National Art Gallery.

The book reflects her varied interests. She was a voracious reader, she fenced and punted in Cambridge, while also being an active supporter of the arts.

Kaleidoscope provides us with a view of a world that has long disappeared, of a Malaysia that was and could have been.

It reminds us of a time when it was still possible to learn French and Latin in a Malaysian school. Of a time when Malaysia had a Labour Party and when the various races mingled without resentment or reserve.

This was a time when politicians behaved like gentlemen and honest debate was not seen as a form of treason.

Her life and writings are a firm rebuke to the gutter politics that Malaysian public life has descended to. As she writes at the conclusion of Kaleidoscope:

“I remember my father telling me, if you are right in the causes you champion, you should be fearless in pursuing them. I sometimes feel Malaysians are too timid to champion worthy causes. Technology now provides us all with greater opportunities to get our voices heard.”

PG Lim is a great Malaysian: bold, brilliant, principled and utterly human. Her story is an integral part of our national narrative. Read it.

Self promotionary exercises in cynicism, and a glaring neglect of Malaysia’s institutionalized APARTHEID . . .

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

Fore-runner to the floundering Tenagania President Irene Fernandez? Little wonder. PG Lim is no activist and had remained silent about apartheid for DECADES (shying away from the very most important and controversial or difficult case of  – APARTHEID). She sat cynically by as real activists were sabotaged over the last decade by the fundo and psychiatric establishment, had their reputation sabotaged or their privacy invaded and who knows had access to and watched so many illegally obtained clips of these people in their private homes which now still plague the reputations of those sabotaged. Instead of reporting the abuses, sat by quietly and ‘enjoyed the show’ alongside the abusers.

PG Lim however has gotten The Star Paper to fette herself as an activist, and The Star Paper being your typical ‘business minded’ plutocrat favouring main stream paper likely brought up on fear of bankruptcy, decided to do what The Star Paper does best, fette whoever pays. Meanwhile REAL activists continue to suffer while struggling to end apartheid. This is the sickness of society and a glaring exanple of what is wrong with Malaysia’s so-called philanthropists and activists. Selfish and self glorifying.

PG Lim is no activist but would like to appear so. Not a word on apartheid and a plutocrat with cpacity to fund dozens of campaigns for neutral parties to boot but with no real stomach for politics either, having NEVER EVER spoken about APARTHEID. We will not blame PG Lim as the company PG Lim keeps has doubtless coloured PG Lim’s nature. Again as a REAL activist we remind on Malaysia’s lack of :

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism (Article 1 Human Rights Charter)
2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. (Article 18 Human Rights Charter)
3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. (Surah An Nisa 4:75)

;and would not sit by silently as PG Lim has, spare no platititudes in  asking voters to not vote for term-limitless, undeomcratic, nepotists, racists and corrupted or plutocrats in BOTH coalitions BN and PR, instead fetting the real grassroots people like 3rd Force political parties or any independent candidates.

Proposed 3rd Force Coalition

PG Lim is a Malaysian ex-Barrister who somehow managed (I’d say INTENTIONALLY, most cynically so as well . . . ) to neglect APARTHEID and live apart from the ‘masses’ : timid, unprincipled and utterly sheep-like. Her non-story is an integral part of our national neglect (of apartheid).

Know this ! The National Consultative Council introduced the much hated and very apartheid New Economic Policy which PG Lim indirectly oversaw the penning of, so guess what that makes an unelected advisory ‘councillor’ PG Lim complicit in? Thats right, (at least after the 15 year period of Special Malay Privileges after thhe Race Riots, in 1976 for not speaking up when the earlier confirmed Reid Commission review was not made) Complicit in enabling APARTHEID. PG Lim could well be charged if the Malaysian Judiciary were not so beholden to racists and UNHCR unaware ( . . . can someone withdraw their degrees already, their apartheid ignoring presence is a legal profession insulting travesty!) with  abetting torts in violation of UNHCR Article 1 in Intenational law and here we have Karim praising PG to the sky. Damn propagandists and their MSM approved straw-women ‘activists’!

Much like Ambiga ex-Bar Council President (and looking increasingly so current Bar President Lim Chee Wee) does not have the intelligence or guts to contact the UN, NAM, BRICS or Al-Azhar University at Cairo to END APARTHEID, a Barrister who ignored APARTHEID to her reputation’s demise confirms the pathetic and selfish true nature of the supposedly trained legal professionals in Malaysia who somehow cannot address APARTHEID (and in general the lack of ‘Exceptionalism’ of female activists in Malaysia who would fight for everything except ENDING APARTHEID).

Read PG’s book with a pinch of salt. This text is a hyped up grayscale ‘whitewash’ (or ‘brownwash’), and is not kaleidoscopic at all. I could think of more ‘colourful’ memoirs to read than this cynical MSM faux-‘Malaysiana’ inspired drivel . . . and ask PG Lim on her views on LGBT, you might actually see more rainbows fade . . . finally, I just lost respect for one more Star reporter.

A free press is essential to democracy — Dennis Ignatius
May 16, 2012

MAY 16 — Marina Mahathir, one of our nation’s most inspiring figures, recently wrote how her article in The Star was spiked for fear of incurring the wrath of the powers that be.

As a columnist for the same newspaper myself, I understand Marina’s angst.

Recently, I submitted an article about democracy in Myanmar. It ran on Monday, May 7. One line was, however, deleted. In referring to Prime Minister Najib Razak’s promise to support the transformation process in that country, I said, “We may not have much to teach them about democracy but we can help in other ways.”

It seemed such a small thing but even such references are now deemed too sensitive.

I thought it was really ironic that here I was writing about democracy in Myanmar, long considered a dictatorship, while being censored in a country that is assumed to be a democracy.

The last article I wrote in response to bizarre allegations in the national press that American and Zionist groups were plotting regime change in Malaysia was spiked with no explanations given.

It seems newspaper editors in Malaysia, at least the ones who don’t behave as government servants, have to constantly play by ear, shutting down criticism when the government is nervous and allowing some measure of it at other times.

Commentators, for their part, quickly learn that it is prudent to write about developments in faraway places than to touch on the issues that really matter at home. And so we wax eloquent on why Nicolas Sarkozy lost the elections or why Barack Obama supports gay marriage instead of the beaten and bloodied demonstrators on the streets of our capital. It’s the journalistic equivalent of Nero fiddling while Rome burns.

Having been brought up on the notion that some issues, particularly those relating to race and religion, are “sensitive” issues, we came to accept a measure of state censorship. There are signs, however, that things are changing. People are less willing to accept such censorship today, particularly as the so-called “sensitive” list has been expanded to include other national issues.

Furthermore, it is quite obvious that the mainstream media has become far too one-sided for the liking of most Malaysians. Perhaps that may account for the gradual decline of newspaper sales in the country.

Our prime minister recently introduced legislation amending the Printing Presses and Publications Act and other repressive laws. He promised that it would lead to greater freedom, including press freedom.

However, it appears that while Parliament may have changed the letter of the law, the spirit of control behind it has survived intact. In quiet and hidden ways, the press continues to be subjected to manipulation and harassment in an effort to drown out dissenting opinions and differing views.

A culture of self-censorship has also emerged where the press learns to anticipate the reaction of the powers that be and acts accordingly. When the press ceases to write “without fear or favour,” to use the title of the late Tan Sri Dr Tan Chee Khoon’s column in The Star, we have truly lost one of the essentials of our democracy.

History tells us that without a free press, truth dies and the lie prevails while mismanagement, corruption and the abuse of power fester in the dark with terrible consequences. As well, it creates an unhealthy environment where rumours and gossip quickly become fact.

Just these past few weeks we have seen how one of the most significant events in our country’s history has been reframed and recast as a communist-inspired coup attempt, as nothing more than mass hooliganism, as something contrary to our religious values.

What about the other side of the story or the personal narratives and firsthand accounts of hundreds of ordinary citizens who were there that day? Is there no space in our national newspapers for their story?

Journalists have a responsibility to capture such events in all its dimensions to help the public understand what took place. If they do not, they will soon find themselves irrelevant to the national conversation on these issues.

History also teaches us that to sustain itself, repression and control, by its very nature, must keep on expanding to be effective. Already we are seeing signs of censorship creep and manipulation — BBC and al Jazeera newscasts edited and an Australian senator’s remarks blatantly distorted.

And then there’re the shocking remarks by our minister of Home Affairs that it is standard operating procedure for the police to smash cameras and harass journalists who cover such public gatherings!

How long will it be before all criticism of government becomes illegal and treasonous?

It is tempting, of course, to blame the editors and journalists for not standing up to censorship but that misses the point.

I have met a number of journalists and editors, including from The Star, and I know them to be honourable men and women who have dedicated their lives to their profession. You cannot be committed to journalism, as they are, and not yearn for the freedom to write, to explore issues, to investigate a lead no matter where it goes. My sense is that they deeply resent the censorship and the constant harassment.

They are forced to make choices that they shouldn’t have to make: To yield in some areas in order to keep at least a modicum of free expression alive in other areas and to compromise or close, to give up or somehow keep hope alive.

The real focus of our indignation should instead be the system of control and manipulation that makes good men and women bow their knee to what their hearts deny, that forces them to choose between their principles and their livelihood, between what they know to be right and the wrong they are often compelled to accept.

It is no secret that our nation now faces many critical challenges; press freedom is one of them. I hope that the voices clamouring for this fundamental right will grow louder in the days ahead. The future of our democracy depends upon it.

“If a nation expects to be ignorant and free… it expects what never was and never will be. The People cannot be safe without information. When the press is free… all is safe.” ~ Thomas Jefferson

Here we go again with the ‘diversionary tactic’, manipulative MSM. Ignoring apartheid, (more so than ignoring beaten and bloodied demonstrators), IS no less ‘the journalistic equivalent of Nero fiddling while Rome burns’, ‘Diplomatic Corps Dennis’.

Apartheid is the basis of the Malaysian problem, NOT the riots which are a symptom that will keep occuring until Apartheid for the minorities, and religious fascism (lack of religious freedom of choice) for Malays or Muslims, ends. Address the apartheid, extreme religion, corruption, cronyism and nepotism, and all riots will end. Men who are able to write eloquently and at least able to think, should not obfuscate real issues for cynical and self serving ‘people in power’.

Guan Eng: Pakatan can defend Kelantan, Selangor better than Penang – Thursday, 22 March 2012 17:31

KUALA LUMPUR— Lim Guan Eng has played down the strength of Pakatan Rakyat (PR) in Penang, saying it is only the third safest state for the federal opposition to retain in an election that must be called by May next year.

The Penang chief minister told The Malaysian Insider in a recent interview the safest state for PR in its first federal polls as a formal coalition was Kelantan, which has been under PAS rule for 22 years.

“Then Selangor, then only Penang. (Tan Sri) Khalid (Ibrahim) is the smartest mentri besar or chief minister in the country and he is stronger than he appears.

“He makes sense in meetings and I think Selangor is stronger than it looks,” he said, dismissing the suggestion that Penang was a “safe deposit” for PR as “appearances are deceiving.”

Kedah is the fourth state controlled by PR and was recently rocked by a split in the state leadership of PAS, which heads the administration there.

The Bagan MP had come under fire from politicians and the public for suggesting last week that Barisan Nasional (BN) could “eat eggs (win zero seats)” in the state.

But he told The Malaysian Insider in a recent interview that “I did not say they will ‘makan telur’.”

“I said if we are vigilant and we work hard, and we get 90 per cent of the non-Malay support and 40 per cent of the Malay support, then they can ‘makan telur’. But it’s going to be hard,” the DAP secretary-general said.

He said reports of his speech at a fundraising dinner had taken his statement out of context as he had also told supporters not to “take for granted we will win as there is no guarantee in politics.”

“I’m giving a worst-case scenario and best-case scenario. Worst-case, we lose power. Best-case, we get that result (a clean sweep).

“But you think you’ll either get the best or worst? You won’t. It will be somewhere in the middle. But you must strive for the higher target,” he explained.

Penang has been repeatedly lauded by the international press for its economic growth and Lim has also praised its residents for attracting the most manufacturing investment of any state in Malaysia for two consecutive years.

But he said that “Selangor also has the same achievements” and dismissed Umno’s claim that Kelantan voters are tired of the lack of development under PAS.

“They are more tired of corruption,” he said, making specific reference to allegations that Wanita Umno chief Datuk Seri Shahrizat Abdul Jalil and her family had abused RM250 million in public funds meant for a national cattle farming scheme.

Despite the National Feedlot Centre (NFC) scandal that has stretched since October last year, Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s approval rating surged by 10 percentage points to 69 per cent in a survey conducted last month.

But Lim said “I don’t deny Najib’s popularity but he cannot contest to be the MB of Kelantan, Kedah, Selangor or CM of Penang. He is contesting to be PM of Malaysia.”

Unlike what the article conveys, DAP’s position in Penang is quite safe actually, except for where nepotist family blocs and term limitless cliques or MPs refusing to amend laws are concerned. DAP as mentioned before, is a great party except for the DAP Central Committee and the DAP nepotist cliques. Continue to vote for DAP, but not the nepotists and oligarch, term limitless and undemocratic abusive MPs in DAP.

Karpal is DAP’s boss, says Guan Eng By Shannon Teoh – March 22, 2012

Karpal renewed his spat with Ramasamy after the latter was cleared by the DAP disciplinary board. — File pic
KUALA LUMPUR, March 22 — Lim Guan Eng moved today to cement the DAP’s backing for its chairman, Karpal Singh, insisting that the issue of who is more powerful in the party does not arise.

The DAP secretary-general had declared yesterday the protracted spat between Karpal and P. Ramasamy was resolved despite the Bukit Gelugor MP’s unhappiness with the Penang deputy chief minister II being cleared of any wrongdoing by the party’s disciplinary committee.

“That issue doesn’t arise,” the Penang chief minister told reporters when quizzed over how the party secretary-general could override his chairman.

“The most important thing is Karpal will be leading as chairman for this coming elections. We want every leader to lead, and Karpal will lead as chairman,” the Bagan MP said, adding that the senior lawyer’s willingness to end the dispute showed “the leadership of Karpal.”

Lim had said that Karpal agreed to bury the hatchet after they met with DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang and party advisor Dr Chen Man Hin.

Last Sunday, Karpal reportedly lashed out during a press conference at the party’s disciplinary committee for clearing his arch-nemesis, Ramasamy, of breaching party discipline involving a demonstration against DAP leaders last December.

According to various media reports, Karpal said the four-man committee, led by its chairman Tan Kok Wai, was unfit to hear the case as it involved Ramasamy, who is also a panel member.

The veteran politician said the four should have excused themselves from the case and new members should have been appointed in their place.

Karpal and Ramasamy, who is also a DAP deputy secretary-general, first came to loggerheads last year when the latter purportedly listed himself and three others as candidates for the coming general election.

This riled Karpal, who shot back at Ramasamy for making such a decision when it was not his place to do so.

In the ensuing verbal exchanges between the duo, Karpal labelled Ramasamy a “warlord”, while the latter responded with a “godfather” tag on the former.

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

The pariahs faction within political parties claiming to champion of democracy have acted, shown they are no different from BN. The title should read, LGE turns back on democracy for racist/communal politics, refuses to be fair to Ramasamy. This is BN style exactly. Both LGE and Karpal should LEAVE the CC due to the closed clique judgments, and for this spat, only neutral parties should decide, NOT undemocratically say ‘Karpal is the boss.’ There is no such thing as a boss. This is a political party not a dual Lim-Karpal clan run family association or family business. Pity the Indian members in DAP, they have a Samy Vellu in the form of term limitless Karpal Singh.

I was born in M’sia and I shall die in M’sia – Kit Siang hits back at his May 13 accusers – Written by  Lim Kit Siang – Thursday, 22 March 2012 15:52

I was born in Malaysia and I shall die in Malaysia. I am proud I have stood by my statement of commitment and patriotism to Malaysia when I was 28 years old under my first ISA detention 43 years ago in 1969.

Recently, there has been a coarsening and vulgarisation of politics in Malaysia, even in this august House of Parliament, where lies and falsehoods are disseminated without conscience or compunction whatsoever.

May 13, 1969 – I wasn’t even in KL

During the present and past meetings of Parliament, the most irresponsible and despicable falsehoods had been made against me, accusing me of having instigated the deplorable May 13 riots 43 years ago in 1969.

For four decades, the police, the security forces and the government could not pinpoint who caused the May 13 riots in 1969, but suddenly, somebody knew who caused the May 13 riots – and I have been accused in this House of having caused May 13, through making the most racist slogans in the streets of Kuala Lumpur on May 11, 12 and 13, 1969.

As a result, these lies and falsehoods that I had incited and sparked the May 13 riots, particularly in the streets of Kuala Lumpur on May 11, 12 and 13, 1969 had been blazoned on the blogs of UMNO cybertroopers.

In fact, I was never in Kuala Lumpur on May 11, 12 and 13, 1969. I contested in Bandar Melaka, was in the counting centre in Malacca until the early hours of May 11, 1969 for the results, returning to my family in Petaling Jaya later on May 11 (Sunday). On Monday, May 12, 1969, I returned to Bandar Melaka constituency for a thank-the-voters procession in the evening and a thank-the-voters public rally on Monday night, both of which were peacefully conducted.

I must have the signal honour of being the only elected representative in 1969 to have both a thank-you procession and public rally as I was booked to fly to Sabah on the morning on Tuesday, May 13, 1969 to help campaign for the Independent candidates as the Sabah and Sarawak polling days were to be held a week after the Peninsular election results.

I was speaking at a public rally in Kota Kinabalu on the night of May 13 when I first learnt of May 13 troubles in Kuala Lumpur.

To accuse me of inciting the May 13 riots with racist outbursts and abuses in the streets of Kuala Lumpur on May 11, 12 and 13 are the most irresponsible and despicable of lies.

What I already foresaw way back then

In my first speech in Parliament on Feb. 23, 1971 after my release from my first Internal Security Act detention and the restoration of Parliament, on the Constitution Amendment Bill 1971, I called for the establishment of a Parliamentary Commission, which should include non-MP Malaysians eminent in their respective fields, to among other things, “find out the cause of the May 13 racial riots” and “to make recommendations as to how to prevent a recurrence of May 13 racial riots and arrest the racial polarisation in Malaysia”.

This was what I said in July 1969 in response to my detention under the Internal Security Act, record of which I am sure are still in the Home Ministry archives:

“My every public statement and stand was motivated by my sense of Malaysian nationalism and patriotism. I was born in Malaysia and I shall die in Malaysia. I have no other land as my home. I have children who are growing up in Malaysia and who are going to live in Malaysia. I feel it is my duty to do my part to build a multi-racial and harmonious Malaysia for, without such a society, all Malaysians will suffer.

“I believe that the policy followed by the Alliance is not producing or generating a sense of Malaysian consciousness and identity transcending all racial language and cultural differences. I believe that the only formula to build a Malaysian nation is to give every Malaysian regardless of his race, language or culture, a stake in the political economic social and cultural development of the country, where no group feels that ti is being discriminated against on racial, cultural, language or religious grounds. It is this philosophy which guided all my public actions and utterances.”

This was my statement of love, loyalty, commitment, nationalism and patriotism when I was 28 years old. I am proud to say that I have stood by this statement.

My children are all in Malaysia, making their contribution towards the building of a modern, progressive, competitive, democratic and just Malaysia.

The next general elections will be a great test for Malaysia whether we can become a normal democratic country, where Malaysians have the right and power to peacefully effect a change of power and government through the ballot box.

I invite the Prime Minister and all Barisan Nasional leaders to join Pakatan Rakyat to prove that we are all Malaysian nationalists and patriots who could work together by establishing a Joint Commission to ensure that the 13th General Elections is the most clean, free and fair in the nation’s history in the process to prove to the world and ourselves that we have graduated to become a normal democratic country.

Najib made many mistakes

In his campaign rounds, Najib recently extended an apology for past Barisan Nasional (BN) mistakes resulting in its loss of several states and electoral seats in the last general elections.

Some three weeks have passed but nobody knows what mistakes Najib was apologizing for.

There are many past UMNO/BN mistakes he needs to tender an apology, but there are also many of his own mistakes made during his 35-month premiership which he needs to apologise for.

Time does not permit me to enumerate these mistakes made by Najib. I will just mention one – his failure to restore public confidence in the efficiency, independence and professionalism of key national institutions, whether the judiciary, police, the Attorney-Generals Chambers, the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission, the Elections Commission.

The refusal of the Prime Minister to set up a judicial tribunal into grave allegations of abuses of power, subversion of the rule of law and the perversion of the course of justice, made against the Attorney-General, Tan Sri Gani Patail and the former IGP Tan Sri Musa Hassan, made by former top police officers, including former CCID Director Datuk Ramli Yusof and the former KL CID Director Datuk Mat Zain, going back to the fabrication of evidence in the Anwar Ibrahim “black eye” incident, the Anwar trials in 1998, the Tajudin Ramli MAS bailouts, and the new information on the “ “bizarre five-year-old case allegedly involving the country’s most powerful police officer, the attorney-general and an underworld figure”, implicating even the Deputy Home Minister at the time, Datuk Johari Baharum, raises grave questions about the Prime Minister’s commitment to the rule of law.

Is the Prime Minister going to avoid taking a stand when it is seriously alleged that only very recently, the country’s topmost legal and police officers in the land, the Attorney-General and the Inspector-General of Police, were criminals – and the same AG is still in office?

This sort of idiotic shouting makes the UMNO racist types want to kick people like LKS out of the country. How about UMNO let Chin Peng back in but kick Kit Siang out of the country instead citing racism? LKS has no loyalty to anyone but his own satrapy and term limitless shamelessness. LKS is bad for democracy as any UMNO warlords and will not even speak about ending APARTHEID, even colluding with BN via nepotist beneficary son LGE (the unvoted for but placed CM Of Penang who’s goons keep abusing rather than amending laws . . . ) to take 750K of tax payer funds WITH BN, their supposed enemy to pass tax payer dollar stealing bills. Who can trust a treacherous undemocratic person like LKS? 3rd Force should take over from here.

My Unwavering Commitment And Patriotism To Malaysia – Lim Kit Siang – Thursday, 22 March 2012 15:29

Recently, there has been a coarsening and vulgarisation of politics in Malaysia, even in this august House of Parliament, where lies and falsehoods are disseminated without conscience or compunction whatsoever.

During the present and past meetings of Parliament, the most irresponsible and despicable falsehoods had been made against me, accusing me of having instigated the deplorable May 13 riots 43 years ago in 1969.

A real patriot would not have started the May 13 riots which LKS doubtless had a part in. A real patriot would not be a term limitless nepotism supporting political party or MP. A real patriot would not coarsely PLACE LGE (LKS’s son) in a blatant show of nepotism as CM in a state where LGE could not even win any seat at assemnly or MP level. This should be titled : Lim Kit Siang’s Unwavering Commitment And Patriotism To The DAP Satrapy (or whats left of the DAP). Firings, unkept campaign promises, state level corruption-abuse of power, Xian fundamentalism??? Time does not permit me to enumerate these mistakes made by Lim Kit Siang. I will just mention one – the failure to restore Local Council Elections as promised.

There are many past DAP/Pakatan mistakes Kit Siang needs to tender an apology, but there are also many of his own mistakes made during his 35-year Gaddafi style MP-ship (complete with family members) which Kit Siang needs to apologise for. 3rd world minded leader of the past needs to be kicked out of DAP even the country . . . had 2 terms? So GFTO of the Dewan and take your products of nepotism and cliques out with you. DAP’s term limitless internally constitution is a FARCE and needs to be rewritten. Cabinet and the ROS should have deported LKS or any other MP who stayed more than 2 terms or installed their kids in any posts LONG ago. Shameless undemocratic lot. They may say the spat is over but cover ups like these will fester and destroy the party’s already undemocratic culture for ALL new members. During my time less than 10 years ago, they already feared the unaffiliated academics enough to close them out, now it seems DAP is very much  like Singapore’s PAP. There is no way Malaysian Chinese can move forward or be represented by a party like DAP, even as Gerakan and MCA’s acceptance of UN illegal Bumiputra-Apartheid policy has damned these other 2 so-called Chinese parties, that leaves PCM in 3rd Force or perhaps SAPP (if SAPP leaves BN), both which have been not been particularly active or democratic either. Vote for 3rd force or run for candidacy as independents for the REAL ISSUE as listed in below 3 items Malaysians! Malaysia does not need DAP and DAP’s undemocratic term limitless liars, clique factions and nepotists!

Subramaniam: Malaysians must prepare for life without maids – By Yow Hong Chieh – March 21, 2012

The minister said a day may come when foreign maids will no longer “want to come and work here.” — File pic
KUALA LUMPUR, March 21 — Malaysians must be prepared to “do their own work” should the time come when foreigners no longer wish to work as domestic help here, Datuk Seri S. Subramaniam said today.

The human resources minister said while foreign maids were readily available now, economic growth in source nations may mean foreigners will one day prefer to work in their home country instead.

“We have to learn how to do our own work. We have opened it so long as there is availability, it’s fine.

As countries evolve, we may not need maids or maids may not want to come and work here

“But… as countries evolve, we may not need maids or maids may not want to come and work here,” he told reporters at Menara Perkeso here.

He was responding to questions about the ongoing talks with Indonesia to send maids to Malaysia.

Jakarta banned its citizens from working as maids in Malaysia in June 2009, after numerous cases of maids being abused by their Malaysian employers.

Indonesia withdrew the moratorium on December 1 last year.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak met with Indonesian President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono in Bali at the end of last year as part of efforts to resolve the issue amicably.

But Jakarta has yet to start allowing the return of Indonesian domestic helpers to Malaysia despite rescinding the moratorium, leading to confusion here.

Subramaniam added today that the government was strengthening “support mechanisms” for Malaysians now with an eye to a possible maid supply crunch in the future.

However, he did not elaborate on the support mechanisms in question.

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

This maid thing could well be the unedifying monopoly of darker skinned races at worst (lighter skinned maids being unemployable) or some form of mask (perhaps like a fencer’s mask or rubber latex mask depicting a typical servant’s face, maybe even with a voice filter so that they cannot be identified later on the street) and uniform that removes entirely the racial and identifying issue. The danger in such a system is of course abuse, trafficking and must be very well monitored perhaps with electronic bracelets and 360 degree cams to protect these now faceless (though probably prominently numbered) people on work contracts from abuse and yet who also do not wish to be identifiable a the same time.

Privacy while working as a maid could be a good incentive for many needing work but not wanting the stigma and later recognition, though records could still be leaked. Faceless masses of menials if anything. Otherwise develop menial AI with robotics that can be managed by a single ‘Menial Manager’ that would have been the maid in earlier days – the drudgery of studying IT or what not Tech based RUBBISH in universities will be the work of mental peons, so that machines can be maintained and repaired in equally peon like work. Here’s your new menial class, tech workers and tech maintainers, thanks to the intentionally poorly written computer languages that do not afford the mainstream society use without corrupting delicate thought processes with convoluted flow charts and doubtless occult paradigms that have no reality in the material or spiritual world except in a destructive and unnatural manner.

An example of bad damage control – NO HOLDS BARRED – Tuesday, 20 March 2012 Super Admin Raja Petra Kamarudin

This is just like how Ibrahim Ali and Perkasa talk.

(Caution to minorities, NLPs up ahead . . . ) Who are you? You are nothing. You Chinese and Indians are pendatang. This country belongs to the Malays. Don’t be so sombong. If you don’t like it you can go back to China or India. Don’t try to demand this and that. Stop asking to be treated equal. You are not equal. Malays are first-class citizens. Chinese and Indians are second-class citizens.

The PKR people are embarking on some serious damage control. And to cover their arses they are distorting what really happened in the hope that they can confuse the people. See what Chua Jui Meng, N Surendran, and S I Tan said below. These were all carried in Malaysiakini, The Malaysian Insider, Harakah, as well as pro-opposition Blogs, Din Merican’s included.

Here we are screaming about the lies and distorted news from Umno and the government- and Umno-controlled mainstream media. Then we find the opposition doing exactly the same as what they accuse Umno and the government- and Umno-controlled mainstream media of doing.

This is what I mean when I say that the opposition must walk the talk. How can a priest stand up in the pulpit during Sunday mass and scream that you must be a good Christian and then go and bugger the choirboys and bonk the nuns? Wouldn’t this be called hypocrisy?

Chua Jui Meng is allegedly a Born Again Christian. I don’t know when he died (maybe when MCA kicked him out) but he got born again when he joined the opposition and decided to fight corruption. Considering he was the most corrupted Health Minister Malaysia has ever seen, I can appreciate that he, of all people, would be the expert when it comes to corruption. Would you not employ the best robber to advise you on how to prevent robberies?

The only problem is when he decided to become born again and then join the opposition to fight corruption he refused to give back all the money he robbed when he was the Health Minister. Aiyah! How can you keep all those millions and then whack others for being corrupted? You must first give back all the money you stole before talking about how corrupted other people are.

Chua Jui Meng, N Surendran, and S I Tan are from Chinese and Tamil schools or what? How come they can’t understand a simple thing like the difference between a debate and an interview?

‘Debate’ means two or more people take opposite positions on an issue and they argue and defend the position they have taken. ‘Interview’ means one person asks another person questions and you reply to those questions.

So, Chua Jui Meng, N Surendran, S I Tan, don’t get confused. More importantly, don’t try to mislead others. That is something Umno and the government- and Umno-controlled mainstream media are supposed to do. The opposition people are supposed to be honest, sincere and trustworthy. If you all also act just like Umno people then why the need to vote opposition? We might as well just vote Barisan Nasional. We want to vote opposition so that we can get something different and something better. But now you all are acting just like Umno — lying and distorting things.

How many times must I repeat the same story before you can understand? Aiyah! Chinese and Tamil schools so bad one or what? Anyway, let me for the umpteenth time tell you what happened.

Wikileaks is producing a documentary and they are interviewing many people for the documentary. Many people mah! Two of these people are Anwar Ibrahim and me. The issue is, do they interview Anwar and me in separate sessions or can they kill two birds with one stone and interview us both at the same time?

When they asked me I said no problem, can do both at the same time. When they asked Anwar he said big problem, must do separate interviews. So the decision was it would be two separate interviews. When they asked me who shall go first, I told them to interview Anwar first and I will take the next session.

So, where got debate one? Why do you keep saying I invited Anwar to a debate? I never invited Anwar! Wikileaks invited Anwar. And it is not a debate between Anwar and me. It is an interview. Julian Assange asks questions and you reply. Simple!

Anyway, whether it is a debate or interview is one issue. But why so sombong one? Why are you all talking like Umno and Perkasa?

Wah! Garang! Who is Raja Petra Kamarudin? He is nobody. Anwar is somebody, a great man. How can Raja Petra want to share the same stage with Anwar? Anwar is way up there. Raja Petra is way down there. Raja Petra is not the same level as Anwar. Raja Petra is just a Blogger. Anwar is the opposition leader.

Imagine if I talk like that.

Who are Chua Jui Meng, N Surendran, and S I Tan? They are just Chinese and Indians. They are pendatang. They are not even Bumiputeras. I am from the Selangor Royal Family. My cousin is the Sultan of Selangor. My uncle was the Agong. My grandfather was the Governor of Penang. Why you call me RPK? Bad manners mah! You must address me as Yang Mulia, not RPK.

Is that the way to talk? Sound sombong or not?

Now the NFC directors refuse to appear before the PAC. They have snubbed the PAC Committee. Who are you? You are just a Committee. Why must we appear before your Committee? We are Directors of the NFC. We are bigger than you. You are nothing. We are orang besar. We have Umno backing. We can walk in to the PMs and DPMs office any time. No need to even make an appointment. We no need to layan you one. We can just snub you.

Can you see how many Malaysians have this same attitude?

Siapa awak? Awak ni rendah. Awak tahu saya siapa? Saya Datuk. Saya Tan Sri. Saya Tun. Saya wakil rakyat. Saya Yang Berhormat. Saya ada kuasa. Saya orang besar. Awak apa? Awak ni Blogger saja. You are nobody. I am somebody.

When I walked into the police station in 2001, Bakri Zinin, the current CID Chief whacked me for no rhyme or reason (he just likes whacking people). When I stood up and asked him why he beat me up, he charged at me and wanted to beat the shit out of me. Luckily three of his officers held him back while my wife held on to me. If not I would have killed him.

“I am the OCPD here!” Bakri Zini screamed.

That’s right. Another case of who are you? I am the OCPD here. I am a big man. You are nothing!

Later, when they looked at my IC, they discovered who I was. To cover their mistake, they arrested and handcuffed me and threw me into the lockup. When I demanded to know under what charge, they replied that they are going to arrest me first and then decide later what to charge me with.

So you see how this ‘who are you, I am a big man’ works?

No lah. Don’t act like this. This is a very sombong attitude. Umno also talks like this. In March 2008, the voters punished Umno for talking like this. So don’t make the same mistake like Umno or else the voters might also punish you like they punished Umno in 2008.

This is just like how Ibrahim Ali and Perkasa talk. Who are you? You are nothing. You Chinese and Indians are pendatang. This country belongs to the Malays. Don’t be so sombong. If you don’t like it you can go back to China or India. Don’t try to demand this and that. Stop asking to be treated equal. You are not equal. Malays are first-class citizens. Chinese and Indians are second-class citizens.

Sound sombong or not? Well, this is exactly how you also sound. So be careful how you talk. If everyone also talks like you, you don’t like it. You will scream that we are all equal. We are all Malaysians. Where got first-class and second-class citizens?

Got! Raja Petra Kamarudin is second-class, maybe even third-class. He is just a Blogger. He not the same taraf as Pakatan Rakyat leaders. Pakatan Rakyat leaders are higher class. How can Raja Petra Kamarudin share same stage as Pakatan Rakyat leaders?

Chua Jui Meng: Raja Petra bukan taraf Anwar untuk di ajak berdebat

“Bukan takut rahsia bocor tapi bukan taraf Anwar (Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim). BN (Barisan Nasional) cuba ubah isu kerana orang yang sepatutnya berdebat dengan Anwar adalah Najib (Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak),” kata Pengerusi PKR Johor, Datuk Chua Jui Meng.

Beliau berkata demikian ketika diminta mengulas berkenaan kenyataan Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin yang melabelkan Anwar sebagai penakut kerana keengganannya berdepan dengan pengendali portal Malaysia Today, Raja Petra Kamarudin.

“Saya yakin BN sengaja mengubah topik kerana mahu mengelak kerana khuatir banyak rahsia mereka bakal terbongkar sekiranya menerima pelawaan itu.

“Sekarang kita cabar pula sama ada Najib berani menyahut cabaran untuk berdebat dengan Anwar. Kenapa pula mengubah isu Raja Petra dengan Anwar? ini bukan soal keberanian tetapi kita mahu individu yang layak,” katanya semalam.

Dalam perkembangan lain, Jui Meng enggan mengulas sama ada beliau akan bertanding di Parlimen Gelang Patah kerana menganggap ia masih terlalu awal, selain menyerahkannya kepada kepimpinan Pakatan Rakyat untuk memilih.

“Sama ada DAP atau PKR yang bertanding di kerusi itu bukan masalahnya. Hubungan kami masih mesra seperti dulu, malah terus bekerjasama erat untuk menang dalam pilihan raya umum akan datang,” katanya.

Anwar shouldn’t debate Najib by proxy, says PKR

PKR vice-president N Surendran is bemused by the flap arising from his party supremo’s imputed refusal to debate maverick blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK).

“I’m amused as to how the controversy has enabled two escape artists to evade the more pressing compulsions for debate,” allowed the busy lawyer-politician in remarks made to Malaysiakini.

“One, of course, is RPK himself: Has there been a more compelling need for the two diametrically opposed parts of him to debate each other, seemingly absurd as that may sound,” offered Surendran.

“On the one hand, the public had for years seen the part of him prior to February last year, just before the Sarawak state elections, when he was a significant voice in the medley that was for reform and change in the country,” he continued.

“After an astonishing statement he made last February, the man struck an about-face, a turnaround which he has sustained to this day, thus showing a face radically different to the one he held up to Malaysian netizens prior to February 2011,” observed Surendran.

Surendran, a likely PKR candidate for the 13th general election, argued that since there has been no distinct change to the political structures of the nation, RPK’s volte-face – its mystery, its puzzle – is prime material for a public airing.

“Seriously, a public debate between the two sides of RPK’s persona is a way to dispel that mystery, though I’m afraid it would give political ventriloquism a bad name.

“But can that be any worse that what he has given to the crusading reformist spirit on the net with his astonishing somersault of the last year,” queried Surendran.

The PKR veep held that the other escapee from the contretemps over Anwar Ibrahim’s imputed refusal to debate RPK was Prime Minister Najib Razak.

“The PM has chosen to ride pillion in this matter by imputing cowardice on Anwar’s part but it is he who is ducking out of a debate with Anwar,” charged Surendran.

“His remarks to foreign correspondents yesterday had plenty of allusions to the American political scene but he missed the elephant in the room which is the prevalence of public debates between leading contestants,” he asserted.

“He wants Anwar to debate his proxy, RPK, which is typical of the rentier culture he represents,” quipped Surendran. — Malaysiakini, 20 March 2012

*****************************************

Why the hell should Anwar debate RPK? — S I Tan

Why should the Leader of the Malaysian Opposition debate a discredited blogger?

In any democracy, the incumbent PM debates the leader of the Opposition, not some blogger who has illusions about his own influence.

Raja Petra Kamarudin may think that he is worthy of acclaim but he is not. He has not stood for elections and is not representing any constituency. In fact, he is just another blogger who owes his loyalty to himself and whoever gives him the time of day.

If you layan him, he is very happy and will be friendly towards you. But if you don’t listen to his advice, then he gets all worked up.

Of course, some people argue that he has crossed over to BN and that is his choice. Maybe they find him more useful in bringing down the Opposition but he is nothing more than someone who puts his views across on his blog.

He is not the Leader of the Opposition, an Opposition which has managed to shake BN’s hegemony. Anwar is the leader and therefore the PM should show some spine and debate him.

But asking Najib Razak to show some spine would be asking too much. So Najib now takes this side issue of Anwar not debating the blogger as his escape route.

After more than 50 years, this is what Malaysia has been left with: a prime minister unable to act prime ministerial and constantly looking for his script from public relations advisors. — The Malaysian Insider, 19 March 2012

Nice bunch of NLPs lobbed Raja faux-Jew. Inside-outside man eh RPK? If you are so YM, then return to Malaysia. Otherwise it’s RPK till then for hiding in a whiteman’s land. Besides the YM only counts in Malaysia unless on official recognized visits elsewhere. Meanwhile the readers can enjoy the counter version of RPK’s NLPs below :

Who are Malays? Malays are less than nothing. The Malays are pendatang. This country belongs to the Indians and Chinese (northern part Chinese) (southern part indian). Don’t be so sombong. If Malays don’t like it Malays can go back to Yunnan or Indonesia. Don’t try to demand this and that. Stop treating non-Malays less than equal. Malays are not even equal. Indians and Chinese are first-class citizens. Malays are second-class citizens.

Hope that ‘heals up’ the NLP unaware who were subtly insulted. Now Malaysia knows why RPK isn’t here, RPK is playing all sides against each other (guess for who?), and are not interested in the well being of nation at all. A pretend runaway working against equality at the end of everything. I still have hopes for those 20 candidates in MCLM, and am glad that Dr.Tengku Haris Ibrahim has left the movement. RPK, you’re as treacherous as they are subverted by. We’ll see if the 20 MCLM candidates can endorse with intent 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.

Otherwise RPK will eventually be remembered as the strawman within 3rd Force.

Guan Eng As Dong Jiao Zong’s Linguistic Role Model – by Helen Ang – Wednesday, 21 March 2012 13:51

Perhaps the Dong Jiao Zong decision to align with DAP comes from a belief that some of Lim Guan Eng’s “shine” could rub off on the Chinese education movement.

To understand why the Chinese educationists should think so, we need to revisit the Chua Soi Lek-Lim Guan Eng debate on Feb 18 that was organised by the Asian Strategic Leadership Institute (Asli).

As everyone knows, the great debate on our two-race system was held in Mandarin. Asli director Michael Yeoh told a press conference that the language medium “was changed to Mandarin following Lim’s request”.

On Feb 23, Guan Eng released the English translation of his debate speech.

Speaking to the packed hall and televised audience nationwide, Guan Eng accused BN of dividing the rakyat into Malays and non-Malays.

Guan Eng also told his listeners: “In BN, Umno only takes care of the Malays, MCA only takes care of the Chinese, MIC only takes care of the Indians, Gerakan… I don’t know takes care of who???…. That’s BN with their “you take care of your race, I take care of my race”. That is a two-race system! Conversely, in a two-party system, we are all brothers and sisters, we take care of each other; every Malaysian is part of one big family!”

Guan Eng’s claim that Malays, Chinese and other ethnicities “are all brothers and sisters” is the type of vocabulary reflecting his party’s Christian evangelist thrust. As is his preaching “every Malaysian is part of one big family!”

Never mind that the family members attend different schools, eat in different places (halal / pork served here), practice different religions (ummah / kafir dzimmi*), possess different psyches, etc. etc.

Guan Eng’s self-proclaimed success

Replying to a participant during the debate’s Q & A session, Guan Eng told the floor: “After March 2008, everyone can see, touch and feel the changes that have happened. In Peninsular Malaysia, the first dual lingual road signs in Chinese were erected in Penang.”

Please applaud Guan Eng’s achievement for “the first dual lingual road signs in Chinese [that] were erected in Penang” after Pakatan took over the state.

If we were to go by Guan Eng’s yardstick, countries like Germany, France and the rest that do not have bilingual signs for their road names would be disgracefully lacking in national ‘Firstness’. [In Berlin, I saw road names carrying the word ‘Strasse’ (Jalan) monolingually and in Paris I saw they are ‘Rue’ (Jalan) monolingually too.]

Guan Eng, unlike “Umno only taking care of Malays” made his sales pitch that “we [Malaysian Firsters] take care of each other” in the Astro live telecast. According to our country demographic, three-quarters of television viewers would not have understood the language in which he spoke.

The DAP secretary general could have elected for the debate to be in Mandarin because he speaks bahasa kebangsaan rather poorly. The MCA president, on the other hand, is a fluent speaker of Malay and hence either BM or English would not have been an obstacle for Dr Chua.

What takes the cake is Guan Eng’s logic-defying challenge to his opponent: “Chua Soi Lek’s refusal to release his own debate transcript in Bahasa Malaysia and English will only prove to non-Chinese speaking Malaysians that he focused on making personal attacks, lies and adopted divisive tactics during the historic Mandarin [debate].”

In the first place, if only Guan Eng had not insisted that the debate be conducted in Mandarin, then his quibble about Dr Chua failing to translate – in order to “prove to non-Chinese speaking Malaysians” – would have been a moot point.

So why didn’t Guan Eng remember about the “non-Chinese speaking Malaysians” to begin with?

In truth, Guan Eng’s nimble antics surrounding the above debate is merely characteristic of his party’s duplicitous approach to policy and political affairs.

He makes the accusation that “BN divides the people into Malays and non-Malays” but his own party since obtaining power has been boasting non-stop that it gave the bumiputera a larger quota than the ruling party ever did.

Aren’t the categories of bumiputera and non-bumiputera similarly “dividing the people” into two separate categories akin to the BN coalition formula that Guan Eng criticizes?

Yet DAP refuse to acknowledge their own adherence to the ‘bumiputera and non’ concept which is not dissimilar to the ‘Malays and non’ cleavage Guan Eng slams Umno for practising.

This bipolar personality disorder of the DAP is obviously a necessary playacting to reassure Malay voters that the privileges they’ve been enjoying would not be threatened in the event the community hands over Putrajaya to Pakatan.

DJZ hooking up with DAP

I had posted earlier in my blog that Dong Jiao Dong allowing DAP’s involvement in their March 25 rally would only serve to politicize the gathering as confrontational. I also noted that DAP’s unerring combativeness is not likely to yield a negotiated remedy to the DJZ requests.

A reader of mine commented in response that DJZ being confrontational now does not deviate from how this Chinese education movement had always been in the past and even when they had the backing of MCA and Gerakan who are the Chinese representatives within the establishment.

Going back to Guan Eng’s debate speech, he complained that “MCA only takes care of the Chinese, MIC only takes care of the Indians”.

Since he and his party – unlike the “racist” MCA, the “racist” MIC, the “racist” Umno and the “racist” everybody else seen through their DAP speck-free eyes – consider themselves to be Malaysian par excellence, it’s quite strange, isn’t it, why we’ve never heard them promoting the Malaysian First language.

Or is DAP unaware that Article 152 of the Federal Constitution spells out the national language? By the way, this 152 is that very same language that is the least and the one most minimally used by Guan Eng if you were to look at all his public speeches uploaded to YouTube.

Hanyu is the medium of instruction in ‘Chinese school’. [Alongside is the mainline education stream called Sekolah Kebangsaan.]

Various official sources cite the particular statistics that more than 90 percent of Chinese parents send their children to Sekolah Rendah Jenis Kebangsaan (Cina).

DJZ’s data say also that 90 percent of SRJK (C) enrolment comprises Chinese pupils. Taken together, these facts indicate that the vernacular schooling system is a communal vested interest of the Chinese.

Thus it’s perfectly understandable that MCA – the Malaysian ‘Chinese’ Association – should be concerned about Chinese schools.

When Hindraf voice their grievances about Tamil schools and other race-specific (i.e. Indian) issues, the DAP camp is quick to vilify them as “racists” and “extreme” in possessing such a communal mindset. When Malays just mention the word ‘race’, they’re immediately branded “supremacists” by Chinese opposition supporters.

DAP take pride in positioning themselves as ‘beyond race’ and above the pettiness of the communalists (i.e. those who do not appear to object to the race label).

Previously Guan Eng had declared: “The time has come for all Malaysians to look at each other as fathers, mothers, brothers, sisters and children faced with similar problems and filled with common hopes and aspirations. For this reason, whilst I will meet with any group seeking a dialogue, I am not keen to initiate discussions on my own with organisations based on a purely communal instead of a Malaysian agenda.” (see ‘BN’s Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde‘ in Malaysiakini)

Err, what is it again that DAP defines as the “Malaysian agenda” — be it in the field of national education, national integration and what not?

How is it that DJZ has been led to believe that DAP, which places paramount emphasis on a “Malaysian agenda”, can be of much help to the education movement’s communal demands being met?

Can anyone refresh our memory on what DAP has ever done for Chinese culture and education?

But more pertinently, what does DJZ expect DAP to be able to achieve on March 25 and thereafter?

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

Helen Ang argues semantics without addressing the 3 REAL ISSUES while LGE is working for himself in a scorced earth policy for the minorities he purported fronts.

Can anyone refresh our memory on what DAP has ever done for Chinese culture and education? Classic.

Thank you Helen Ang for making so much clear in a single sentence. DAP is nominally after all no longer  Chinese being Xian (and hence loyal to the Xian Capitals nominally Aramea if not the Vatican) , and a potential Zionist lobby like PAP under the Lee Clan is ASEAN’s same version. DJZ would be better off fielding their own independent candidates than associating with the nepotistic oligarchs of DAP which cannot keep campaign promises and has abused power and refused to amend laws and has limitless terms and family blocs. Even in the corporate world of private companies nepotistic family blocs are frowned on, in a political party accountable to the people of a country, limitless terms nepotistic  behaviour or oligarchy is just shameless and unacceptable.

The social inbreeding in companies and political parties . . .

Ethics, especially in publicly accountable outfits like political parties determines propensity for corruption and abuse of power (DAP has abused power extensively the last time and currently while in power . . . ), DAP is not a safe choice where the nepotists and family blocs are MPs, BUT where all other DAP MPs or assemblymen not nepotistic, part of cliques, family blocs  or term limitless, keep voting them in! To remind, the REAL ISSUES again below :

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.

Any race or faith and any party believing in the above 3 items and condemning nepotism, condemning oligarchy, condemning limitless terms is votable. If there is no such candidate, run for candidacy yourself voters.

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.

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).

TAY PUAY CHAN is MCA Legal Bureau Chairman

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

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!). Vote properly you citizens, or run for candidacy and vote for yourselves!

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!

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.

Penang International Airport In A State Of Distress

With reference to our earlier conversation, I wish to bring your attention to the above subject.

In the last two to three weeks, the Penang International Airport has been in a state of severe distress. This is due to three reasons:

1. The RM250 million airport expansion project is behind schedule.

2. The works being carried out are defective, resulting in not only leakages but also flooding. Whenever it rains, it will flood not only outside but up to one inch inside the airport terminal.

3. This problem is causing massive disturbance and inconvenience to countless airport users, affecting not only their travel convenience but worse, also damaging their luggage.

I am sure YB Minister will agree that it is an extreme embarrassment to the country to have one inch of water floating inside the terminal of an international airport. As the airport is the first impression people get of Penang and in many cases, of Malaysia, I strongly urge YB Minister to intervene directly to resolve this problem.

This shameful situation is extremely serious and reveals a systemic failure in the whole project. It is therefore imperative that YB Minister take immediate action on this matter, and if possible to visit and see for yourself the sad and shameful state of affairs at the Penang International Airport.

I have attached a few photos along with this letter as stark proof of how bad the situation is.

This is a matter of national concern, and I sincerely hope that you will treat this it seriously and with grave importance.

Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

Lim Guan Eng

WEAK! And a waste of a Chief Minister’s mandate. This strawman airport nonsense is to be addressed by the EXCO, not the CM glory hogging on useless items to make DAP a useless party and by extension Pakatan a useless coaltion already peopled by term limitless nepotists. Penang can have no airport but with the below listed 3 items :

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.

;that Malaysia will be better for. Anyone would sacrifice Penang Airport for the above 3 items which are more useful.

Malaysian Minorities In A State Of Distress

With reference to our future conversation, I wish to bring your attention to the above subject.

In the last two to three decades, the Malaysian Minorities have been in a state of severe distress. This is due to three reasons lacking for the Malaysian Minorites:

1) Freedom from Apartheid/Fascism is lacking behind schedule

2) Freedom from Religious-Persecution/Religious-Supremacy. Resulting in not only racism but also apartheid.

3) Equality for all ethnicities and faiths in all aspects of policy, Law and Constitution. affecting not only their living convenience but worse, also damaging their sense of citizenship.

I am sure YB Prime Minister will agree that it is an extreme embarrassment to the country to have 2 clases of citizenship inside the constitution of an international airport. As the airport is the first impression people get of Penang and in many cases, of Malaysia, I strongly urge YB Minister to intervene directly to resolve this problem.

This shameful situation is extremely serious and reveals a systemic failure in the whole nation. It is therefore imperative that YB Prime Minister take immediate action on this matter, and if possible to visit and see for yourself the sad and shameful state of affairs of the Malaysian Minorities.

I have not attached photos along with this letter as no stark proof of how bad the situation is can be communicated in pictures.

This is the matter of national concern, and I sincerely hope that you will treat this it seriously and with grave importance.

Sultan’s approval sought for Kedah Pas duo – Friday, 09 March 2012 13:09

Sultan’s approval sought for two Pas leaders to be Kedah state executive councillors

MENTERI Besar Datuk Seri Azizan Abdul Razak has submitted the names of Datuk Phahrolrazi Zawawi and Datuk Dr Ismail Salleh to be re-appointed as the state executive councillors.

The two names were presented to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Abdul Halim Mu’adzam Shah, who is also sultan of Kedah, for approval yesterday. Azizan arrived at 4.50pm at the Istana Anak Bukit, near here, and spent about 50 minutes during his audience with Tuanku Abdul Halim.

The re-appointment of Phahrolrazi and Dr Ismail, in accordance with Pas central working committee’s directive, was part of the party’s solution to resolve the power struggle between Azizan and the two former councillors.

“I’ve already submitted their names to the sultan but he has yet to give his consent on their re-appointments,” said Azizan.

When asked when the swearing-in ceremony for the duo, who were dropped from the 2012-2013 councillors’ line-up, would take place, Azizan said he was not unsure. “It depends on the palace.”

The duo’s tenure as state executive councillors for the 2010-2011 term expired on Wednesday.

They had previously rejected re-appointments as state executive councillor, which is done on a yearly basis, during the swearing-in ceremony on Feb 28 citing differences with Azizan.

Azizan had accepted the duo’s decision and went on to appoint five Pas leaders as Kedah executive councillors and left two posts vacant to be filled on a later date. The crisis between Azizan and Phahrolrazi and Dr Ismail, who are alleged to have spearheaded the power struggle, had created waves in Pas and its senior leaders held two central working committee meetings to find a solution to settle the issue.

The solution reached was for Azizan to remain as menteri besar until his term expires and a steering committee would be set up to monitor his performance.

Speculation has it that the duo would be given less prominent portfolios in the state executive line-up.

They are expected to take up a few of the five portfolios which have yet to be filled up after the menteri besar named his new exco line-up last week.

The portfolios — agriculture and agro-based industries; industry, in vestment and biotechnology; rural development and poverty eradication; science and innovation and entrepreneur development — are expected to be split between Phahrolrazi and Dr Ismail.

Sources said Phahrolrazi would not be given back the housing and local government, works and water supply, water resources and energy portfolio as it had been assigned to Datuk Amiruddin Hamzah.

Dr Ismail was previously the exco member in charge of health, non- governmental organisations, human capital, science and innovation, information technology and communications.

The Sultan’s approval being sought for Kedah Pas duo would be best amended, on the Sultan’s own initiative (what other way is there unless so many VIPs do rally behind the issue and petition politely) and perhaps via some Constitutional or Democratic studies trained academic’s recommendation, to a minimum 66.6% quorum by the people, district by district for each individual councillor instead. The popular vote method, and Sultan’s willingness to allow the people to choose will make for a more well loved and democracy reliant Royal Institution.

The Bitter History Of The Man-Made God, page 1 – Topic started on 5-3-2012 @ 09:57 AM by Starchild23

The modern “God”, as defined by man, is a ruthless tyrant, and man a blind race of sheep. I will keep this short, as I don’t feel like providing specific examples. Those of you who have read the Bible, or are familiar with its stories…you who remain utterly faithful to the literal interpretation of its fables…you are the ones I am addressing. You are the blind ones, the ones who believe in the man-defined God (despite the fact that man, as he is, could never hope to understand God) and the ones who will know what I’m talking about as I explain this.

God is a tyrant, and unworthy of our worship (not that we need to worship ANYTHING).

Here is my justification in stating this. God arrogantly created man without the knowledge of good and evil, then demanded that they obey a rule which requires the knowledge of good and evil, then kicked them out when they fail to do so as a result of being inadequately equipped to deal with the issue. Not stopping there, he proceeded to cast Satan out into the same world as them, so that no matter what they did, they would fall into the same trap again and again.

Afterwards, God kills a bunch of people for not paying any attention to him, then plays with them, testing to see what kind of depraved acts they are willing to commit to save their own skins from “damnation”, before going “PSYCHE! got ya! ”

Then God sends his only son to be killed in order to save the people, tricking them into accepting his gift of absorbing all sin, then demanding payment in the form of eternal servitude…the alternative being the fiery pits of hell for all of forever.

And in the end, he will completely ransack the earth, killing half of his blindly devoted servants and making the other half question his sanity, before sending his son back saying, “Did you miss me?” and destroying anyone who ever questioned him. Unless they beg like dogs, of course.

This is the God we have been encouraged to worship for centuries. A loving God, yet a malicious and jealous God. A contradictory, egotistical, whimsical, and highly vindictive all-mighty being.

Is this the entity we are supposed to put our faith in? One that, for all of his power, can think of no other way to erase our sins or redeem our souls than to kill his own son and demand that we serve him for all of eternity?

I call troll. And if you disagree, then you choose to remind faithfully blind. Me, I was given brains for a reason. I’m not choosing ignorance. And let me make it clear that this description (which I firmly believe to be accurate) applies to man’s definition of God. The God we are lead to worship these days is not truly a god, but man’s definition of God. I do not worship a definition. I do not worship a sloppily drawn, crumpled, half burnt image…which is what man’s version of God amounts to. I don’t even believe that the true god desires to be worshiped. I believe that given the choice, the true god would rather have us love each other than Him/Her/It. Because if all it leads to is wars, then why exist at all?

I believe in a god…but not the god that is being pushed upon us by our peers. This is a god who has been constructed, drawn, colored in, and defined by the very men who worship him. Man, who has crippled and despoiled both the world and him/herself. I don’t worship man’s ideals, or anything that has been interpreted by man.

I trust in the true god, not this malicious, vindictive tyrant which the Bible itself says is “jealous and angry.”

Jealousy and anger are not symptoms of true love. And any omnipotent, omniscient and benevolent being would know this.

Wake up, and recognize the true god…the one within you. Namaste.

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

This article would have been good if not for the proselytizative ‘hail’ FAIL in the form of Namaste at the end of the article. Unsubtle. Just makes people hate Hinduism (not that Hindu is hateful in itself), as much as any ethnically centralized faith does not encompass everyone.

I have often wondered about the bullying nature and innate bloodthirst emanating from the words within some religious texts and dropped Xianity quite quickly because the ‘jealous god’ thing. A jealous god deserves no worship and probably is evil in nature. Whats so godly about god that behaves like a sick minded jealous ‘ex’ or a childish ‘angry’ teen (Sounds like a great ?porn? title  . . . (Jealous and Angry Exes From The Kingdom of God . . . )? Worship occurs of the follower’s free will if the God is good, also needs the follower’s personality to be compatible with the ‘commandments’ of that god. Otherwise no worship for that god. The Christ triple entity was a man, but grew as another might have and still may, into the Son of God after deifying the Mother (who became an immaculate conceiver, this is not unknown in nature and CAN occur in hermaphrodites . . .).

Any man (being an image of God), can grow into Sainthood/Anti-Sainthood via many paths (isolation so as to communicate with the spirit appropriate to one’s nature, tantric practices, sacrifice of others (hence the taste for war and on a civilian scale – murder, serial or otherwise), sacrifice of self, formation of world wide hierarchies, propagation of culture and language (this can be reversed or countered via massive populations or cultural programming, linguistic insularism), military might and proselytization being the lowest and weakest, easiest to displace form of Sainthood), and can if well read enough, eventually begin a new religion to finally claim relations to the existing ‘God’ who will most doubtless make known signs of that attempt’s success.

A Holy Book and body of evidence and life events, some of which becomes Apocrypha that splinter sects take up to justify more claimants to godhead by relation, via forming hierarchies, gathering massive wealth, but the truest form of such attempts when enmired in gross materia rather than spiritia, result in the twisted mobs of insane claiming the status of faithful, others becoming inquisitors to tyrannise the population, and others sacrificing lives via crusading – the first ends up as limited/discriminating Ecclesia that can never encompass all humanity, the second tend to be the mirror opposite of paedophiles (both different sides of the same coin), the third depending on the victory of defeat are intended REVISIONISTS or book burners that will rewrite history and befuddle the minds of future generations as typical barbarians do.

It is well possible that overpopulation with low caste persons lowers spiritual power of man overall, that population needs to be lowered so that other species can grow to balance humanity or somehow have other species match humanity’s growth to balance energic balance, humans per se are not balanced emanators of energy, without the other lifeforms’ emanations – which will gather in spirit (en masse) in HUMANS instead to which any individual’s will (the more balanced the more right being given to determine the destiny of the planet) may express itself.

India constructing larger replica of Angkor Wat – The new version of the landmark is set to become the world’s largest Hindu temple complex – by Zoe Li, Hong Kong Editor 6 March, 2012

Angkor Wat replicaThe symbol of Cambodia, soon to be shared by Bihar, India.

Imitation might be the the sincerest form of flattery, but in the global tourism racket replication is the sincerest form of poaching on someone else’s turf.

There’s the “Eiffel Tower” in Las Vegas, and, of course, the entire Austrian village currently being cloned by a Chinese company.

None of these “if you can’t beat ’em, copy ’em” projects, however, are as audacious as the one now underway in India, where a larger version of Cambodia’s UNESCO World Heritage Site Angkor Wat is being built on the banks of the Ganges in the state of Bihar.

A foundation-laying ceremony for the temple took place on March 5 at the 16-hectare site near Hajipur, about 25 kilometers north of Bihar’s capital Patna.

The Mahavir Mandir Trust will undertake the US$20 million project that will take an estimated 10 years to complete. The trust has built a number of hospitals and temples in Bihar, mainly funded by donations.

“The launch of the project has been timed to coincide with the ongoing centenary year celebrations of the foundation of Bihar,” the trust’s secretary, Acharya Kishore Kunal, told The Hindustan Times.

Angkor Wat is Cambodia’s national icon and was built in the early 12th century by King Suryavarman II.

It was first a Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Vishnu. Later it became a Buddhist site.

Bihar’s version of Angkor Wat will be called Virat Angkor Wat Ram temple. It hopes to claim the title of world’s largest Hindu temple complex with the tallest point reaching 67.6 meters, slightly taller than the original.

“The selected site for construction of the temple has mythological significance,” said Kunal of the site in the Vaishali district. “It is believed that the deities Ram, Lakshman and Vishvamitra had visited and were welcomed by King Sumati of the Vaishali kingdom.”

Angkor Wat is Cambodia’s biggest tourist draw and appears on the Cambodian flag. The number of foreign visitors at Cambodia’s Angkor Wat Archaeological Park reached 206,000 in January 2012, nearly 30 percent more than the same month last year.

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

Occult Theories on what is going on behind a supposedly simple building project.

Look here, the Chola Imperium and other ethnic Indian empires dominated alongside China, the Indo-Chinese region all the way to the borders of China, Australia, up to Zoroastrian Persia (modern Iran, less so Afghanistan, tajikistan and Pakistan though Indian cultural influences are known to have had headways even then – at least until the 2nd Crusade Golden Horde Mongols charged through the region after the first crusade as Hun Mongols possibly . . . ) and controlled even the southern and middle regions of the Malay (Orang Asli) archipelago and the Western parts Indonesia. That is why there was even an Angkor Wat at all. What this building does, is recall and revive the Indian Hindu-cratic Imperium centralised in India. The Cham and other co-opted proto-Malay/Orang-Asli/Aboriginal peoples were very much Hindu for centuries (until the rise of the Malacca Sultanate perhaps?) and mixed with Indian bloodlines in some cases.

This is no copy but a REVIVAL. Who knows the Vaishali Court could be revived as well? If India installs a High Priest at this new temple with the appropriate symbolism and intent etc.. Cambodia could well again be a spiritual colony of India rather than a spiritual PUPPET of the West. Cambodia, you should know that your neighbours are Asians and headed by India and China, why do you attempt to be the Israel of East Asia and try to offend these 2 powers? The more we look at things, Hollywood appears more like a propaganda weapon than anything else, while entertaining, being full of agenda makes the outfit not much pleasure to be around.

if you can’t beat ’em, copy ’em” is inaccurate, India CAN actually beat Cambodia military at any time, and is not copying Cambodia but REMINDING ‘them’ instead where the Angkor Wat structure was conceived. Nepal is where Buddhism came from, India is where Hinduism came from, the architecture in Angkor is HINDU. The Buddhists merely co-opted the structure. Quite rude of CNN to say this is copying, more skewed reporting CNN? If you read Buddhist history, a terrible affront was made to Agni by cobnversion of Agni’s worshippers to Buddhism during the would be egregore Buddha’s early days, and shaving of their hair (which are the gift of the gods).

Occultism wise, this is India’s (and also Hinduism’s) response to the seemingly innocuous ‘The Cradle of Life’ Die Wiege des Lebens 2003 and nominally the ‘Temple of Doom’ Steven Spielberg 1984. Fully expect that Die Wiege des Lebens and Steve Spielberg are BOTH Masons and Occultists, Hindu India is now retaliating and ‘recalling’ if you ask me. Both Buddhism and Hinduism are fighting for dominance with West partly using Buddhism, making spiritual inroads into Indo-China via Cambodia AND Buddhism as well as Tibet AND Buddhism – suffice to say Buddhism is being used as a weapon of ‘Reverse Spiritual Colonisation’ against the East (or the Indian and Chinese members of the BRICS – Russia and the best of Marxism only being partially subverted through Gorbachev).

There’s the “Eiffel Tower” in Las Vegas that is occult in intent (siphoning off the luck of of France to that gambling capital if you ask me), and, of course, the entire Austrian village currently being cloned by a Chinese company is a way to keep tourist dollars back home, and for the poorer Chinese who cannot afford the exchange rate and may never get to go to Europe because it the trip will be too expensive.

TE Lawrence’s diaries – Ubar – location of Iram / Iram- city of Pillars / Iram- city of Pillars

Set in the sweltering Arabic deserts and other locales, Nathan Drake is once again accompanied by Victor ‘Sully’ Sullivan in a quest to find the mythical city ‘Iram of the Pillars’ .

The story goes that Iram was a magnificent city that was the jewel of the desert sand. Many ancient kings and kingdoms traded with Iram and it flourished unperturbed until a chance encounter with the Deity, who disapproved of certain practice. According to Islamic texts Legend has it that the King Shahhad defied warnings from a prophet Husd regarding certain practices and God unleashed huis fury on the city. It was driven into the sands, its glory, wealth and its people perishing into the endless sands of the desert. Referred to in some texts as Ubar ( it is the region that is called Ubar and the people Ubarites) Iram is considered forever lost. Westerners become aware of this legendary lost city in the translations of 1001 Arabian Nights. The legendary Lawrence of Arabia himself, TE Lawrence, referred to the city as the ‘Atlantis of the Sands’.

Now here’s a spiritual theory on the spiritual background alongside the comings and goings of political parties and the original peoples of East Malaysia which the village shamans of the Orang Asli, (Orang Asli being the original inhabitants of East Malaysia since 50,000 b.c. or even earlier, with Nusantaran Animism the original faith system 1000s of years old, and Islam only present from the later 1800s onwards for East Malaysia and 1200s for West Malaysia . . . ), could best relate to.

When DAP of the Pakatan Coalition used the ‘Ubah’ puppet (as the ‘initiated’ or those studied know – the mascot has a variable power of sorts – which is why China dropped the 5 cartoon mascots for their own Olympics at the last moment) using the innocuous Hornbill no less, to court the OrangAsli with, DAP was in fact  mounting a spiritual attack on the orang asli’s spiritualism. The intent was to make Ubah the mascot of the Orang Asli, and be extension make Ubah UBAR and thus related that the Orang Asli are a ‘LOST’ people, removing the shamanistic Nusantaran Animist ‘Deitys influence ‘ which doubtless has similarity to the UBAR Deity.

Figured the Pakatan creeps' NLP based modus operandi out?

By making the ‘Deity’ think the Orang Asli were ‘lost’ (as UBAR is mixed up with UBAH) and no longer there, the protection of the Orang Asli mind would be no longer extended (the Deity has alot of work elsehwere on Earth AT ALL TIMES in ALL PLACES) and open up the Orang Asli to conversions by the Christians (DAP) and Muslims (PAS). Once again I remind, Pakatan is no pure minded coalition and with this form of spiritual insult, the Orang Asli might as well vote speecifically ONLY for Orang Asli and Nusantaran Animist candidates. This is no attack on any monotheistic faith but an exhortation to use honesty instead of sneaky proselytization to ‘convert’ and destroy the Nusantaran Animist faith of an already oppressed people who have had much of their land stolen and still no solution to regain what they have lost via rampant, likely illegal issuance of citizenships to specifically people ready to conveniently convert to Islam to ‘occupy’ East Malaysia. Except by voting only Orang Asli and East Malaysian born persons, there is no other way to preserve this spiritual tradition or regain the Orang Asli’s sovereignty.

Finally Borneo likely could be considered a single item and may need a form of autonomy from both Malaysia and Indonesia and union spiritually within the peoples living on Borneo. If this post is offensive, please inform, I will edit and remove if necessary.

Showboating politicians may need psychiatric help — Lim Mun Fah — February 23, 2012

FEB 23 — Adolf Hitler, Tony Blair and George Bush developed a Hubris Syndrome while in power, Benito Mussolini and Mao Zedong were both severely depressed and probably bipolar, while Nikita Khrushchev suffered mild mania.

In addition, Neville Chamberlain, Margaret Thatcher, George W. Bush, Theodore Roosevelt and Lyndon Baines Johnson also showed signs of the Hubris Syndrome symptoms.

The above sayings are quoted from David Owen’s book, In Sickness and in Power.

Who is David Owen? How could he make such a “diagnosis”?

David Owen is a British veteran politician. He graduated from the University of Cambridge and served as a medical doctor, a neurologist with a special interest in psychiatry. He was elected Labour Member of Parliament and later became the British Foreign Secretary. He is also founder of the Social Democratic Party.

As a politician and a medical professional, he makes professional observation and diagnosis based on political leaders’ crisis management approaches in making major policy decisions, as well as their physical and psychological health status.

In the book, Owen bluntly studied the words and deeds of former British prime minister Tony Blair and former US president George W. Bush. He wrote that the two leaders’ move of calling the Iraq war was a concrete manifestation of Hubris Syndrome.

He also criticised that the leaders were too confident to listen to different views. He claimed that Blair was interested only in making sure others know that he was in a combat with the evil, and it was actually exactly the same with Bush’s foolish remarks saying that the crusades were launched to help the world get rid of the evil.

He also listed 14 symptoms of the Hubris Syndrome, including narcissism, restlessness, excessive self-confidence, proclaiming oneself as saviour and equating oneself to the country, taking the world as a stage to perform power and seek glory, as well as despising other people’s suggestions and criticism, to the extent of thinking themselves omnipotent.

Owen urged a study of the Hubris Syndrome to develop a better democratic check and balance system, and prevent arrogant leaders from leading the country into a dangerous situation. He admitted, however, that leaders with Hubris Syndrome usually show no sign before taking the office, but the problem becomes gradually serious when they are in power.

Even more interesting, he said that leaders who meet three or more of the symptoms should step down as the world needs leaders who are wiser and healthier.

Owen’s advice should be used as a reference for politicians who are currently fighting for an opportunity to contest in the next general election. Those who are trying to attract attention with sensational words, abusive language and violence should review and see whether they have symptoms of Hubris Syndrome.

If they have, they should seek psychiatric treatment as soon as possible! — mysinchew.com

Mutual Respect Should Begin At School – Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin – Wednesday, 22 February 2012 00:04

PETALING JAYA — Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin said the move to instill a deeper understanding on the importance of respect for one another, although from different religions, should begin from school.

He said the country would be stronger when the people no longer see the differences among them.

Muhyiddin, who is also Education Minister, said the move would enable educationists, teachers, parents and students, to place greater importance on avoiding the sensitivities of the other communities.

“On the other hand, we respect our diversity and accept it as a valuable heritage which cannot be found in other countries,” he said when launching the school-level World Interfaith Harmony Week at SMK (P) Sri Aman, here yesterday.

Also present were Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Dr Koh Tsu Koon, and Education Director-General Abdul Ghafar Mahmud.

Muhyiddin said various programmes and activities aimed at inculcating the spirit of cooperation, as well as tolerance and acceptance for the diversity in religion, culture and race, could be implemented at the school level.

He said the rapid progress achieved by the country today was a result of cooperation among the people of various races, religions and culture who accepted these differences as something special.

As citizens of Malaysia under the 1Malaysia concept, he said, they should be grateful for the understanding and respect for one another that existed among them.

Guan Eng’s Belated Excuses – by Dr Wee Ka Siong – Thursday, 23 February 2012 13:11

The belated excuses given by DAP Secretary-General Lim Guan Eng on why he did not refute the allegations directed towards him by MCA during the “Chinese at a Crossroads. Is the 2 Party System Becoming a 2 Race System?” debate between him and MCA President Dr Chua Soi Lek last Saturday is ridiculous and his explanations should have been brought up during the debate.

Equal time was given to both sides to speak, but Guan Eng did not use the time to refute those allegations. He only explained his excuses at the press conference after the debate, and DAP leaders also kept sending press statements to the media to protect him, thus it is no wonder Guan Eng insisted on becoming ‘Zhuge Liang’ (one of the greatest strategists ofduring the Three Kingdoms era of Chinese history), as it proves that he, on hindsight, had noticed these problems.

There is no announced winner in the debate as that decision is left for the voters to decide. Therefore Guan Eng need not get himself over excited, as everything was fairly done.

The debate will naturally allow everyone space to rationally discuss issues, and starting a war of words after the debate is wrong and is in contrasts to the fundamental purpose of a debate.

Guan Eng accusations that Chua Soi Lek is purposely targeting him during the debate and that the arrangement of the debate hall was done in an unfair manner is baffling. Does Guan Eng think that Soi Lek’s asking him to be like ‘Liu Bei’ (Emperor of the state ofShu Han during the Three Kingdoms era of Chinese history) is an attempt to insult him? Or does he think that ‘Liu Bei’ is not of equal standards with him?

There are two sides to every comment, and it depends on how can look at it. If one has a narrow-minded view or interpretation of things, than anything can be construed as a personal attack, and that is what has twisted the real meaning of the debate.

DR. WEE KA SIONG is MCA Youth National Chairman

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

If neither MCA nor DAP, will have a broad enough view to interprete APARTHEID as APARTHEID, then any other 3rd Force political party will be preferable to political parties like MCA and DAP who cannot see (or dare not speak on, as per the UNHCR Article 1) apartheid for what apartheid is. MCA has had 50+ years and not spoken once. DAP fares better at 2 years since (also) NOT addressing APARTHEID, beating MCA’s record by 25 times but that is 2 years not speaking against apartheid and wasting . . . PM Najib has the mandate to end APARTHEID but does not. What does that mean? Is this state of disenfranchisement and discrimination in Law and Constitution legal in the UN view and context? Soundbites without demands for policy change (i.e. Ending Apartheid) equals to WASTED votes.

They are endowed with reason and conscience and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. Do Muslims consider the rest of humanity fellow humans? Or just dhimmis? Dishonest to keep the apartheid in place . . .

Wonder where you learned that move? Paris Jackson copies her father Michael’s famous dance step on the softtball field By Daily Mail Reporter Last updated at 6:55 AM on 15th January 2012

Her father was famous for his inspiring and innovative dance moves including the much admired Moonwalk.

And Paris Jackson today resembled the King of Pop as she balanced on her toes, Michael Jackson style on the softball field.

While catching the ball, the 13-year-old looked like she was bringing out one of her late father’s special tiptoe stand dance move.

Busting a move: Paris Jackson’s tip toe stand on the football field today resembled her late father Michael’s famous dance move

And Paris also seems to have her father’s focus, as she looked to be concentrating hard on the game.

The teenager is particularly sporty, and last year became the only female member of her school’s flag football squad.

And the aspiring actress will soon be making her acting début in film series Lundon’s Bridge And The Three Keys.

Family affair: Prince Michael, Blanket and Paris, pictured last year, will all be remembering their father at Grauman’s Chinese Theatre

Meanwhile, her father’s memory lives on, and it was recently revealed that Paris and Prince, as well as younger brother Blanket, nine, will be placing their father’s shoes and famous sequinned glove into the cement outside Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Los Angeles on January 26.

A statement announcing the news read: ‘The Grauman’s Chinese Theatre forecourt is one of the most photographed tourist sites in the world, annually attracting as many visitors as the Taj Mahal in India and the Prado Museum in Madrid.

‘The Grauman’s hands and footprints ceremony is rich in tradition and provides the four million plus people a year who visit the site an up close look at the hand and footprints of Hollywood’s most notable talents.’

As for the constant ridiculing of Blanket’s nickname, his real name is Prince Michael Jackson II, and he is named after his great-grandfather. Michael Jr., the oldest, was born shortly after one of Michael’s grandfathers named Prince (he had 2) passed, and they nicknamed him Prince. As for Blanket, it’s a loving term meaning to “blanket with love” which was a term passed around Michael’s friends and family. The little boy doesn’t seem to have a problem with it, so I don’t know why everyone else does. [[[ *** Don’t go around using the reserved terms for real Royalty. If I were in Africa or want to be viable in Africa (i.e. not slight REAL Princes in Africa), I’d drop the ‘Prince’ part of the name and seek out a REAL African Princess to marry if I were Blanket (also to ‘Blackwash’ as mom was a commoner and whiote . . . ) – and only then could the TITLE not be a *name based FARCE. *** ]]] Best wishes to the MJ brood otherwise, and please don’t associate with MJ if you’re trying to whiten up – even in choice of mate . . . it’s allowing yourselves to be taken advantage of by ‘Ole Massa’ if anything.

Even an MJ impersonator – especially a black and obviously African looking one would be better than this ‘half blood’ faux princess. MJ is *MALE* and *BLACK* (well he was until they decided to white wash him), and MJ’s obviously lightish-beigish skinned daughter (who should make a fine trophy wife for some celeb after a few films or some music . . .) is NOT MJ (she will never be MJ!!! Sniff!), or worse she manages to become MJ, though that would be an MJ w/o a you know what . . . she’d want to remain her father’s daughter not become her father (try growing articifial male genitalia but thats not ORGANIC while quite shemale), though at this point Paris (couldn’t someone like MJ’s daughter get ANOTHER name? Life is too short to spend as a France killing muppet NLP/meme . . . Shenene is more black though I think the whitewash effect in this generation of Jacksons is just too deeply entrenched . . . ) probably has not had time to delve into this.

Do not become MJ silly girl! Respect the ‘Immortal Tour’ by not becoming MJ, for immortal implies that MJ is alive, and if you want to become MJ, you’re deriving sustenance from MJ, subtracting from his spirit, also the name of the tour and hence the fans as well . . . Sadly if even ‘Blanket’ is not any more African either, how can this really pale woman become MJ? Maybe Africa’s intelligence or information ministry could fund it’s own ‘blackwashed’ star called JM (use authentic African names) who becomes increasingly dark and more African as he gets more famous, who is MALE (of course otherwise how to ‘unsubvert’ what looks set to occur here) . . .

But do control the franchise that your father MJ left or, (perhaps) yet to be born Uncle (yes uncle, MJ II is another brother . . . ) could become, after your Grandparents pass on, IF MJ MK2 doesn’t get the better of everyone from YOUR generation haha, you’d all be senior to MJ MKII (perhaps Hitler’s clone as well) by 10-20 years! MJ’s spirit would approve! Like the spirit of the Egyptian gods await a Pharoah to speak through again, MJ MKII could be an instant reboot of MJ I apart from cloning, which means Hitler probably is already among us . . .

Faux-Data on proposed MJ MK II Project

– Same parents and DNA? Check.

– Same training? Check.

– Same childhood places etc..? Check.

MJ MK II should be born in a year . . . and should not somehow become pale skinned again . . .

MJ’s dad and mom (both alive and well) could have another child with a very ethnic looking African as a surrogate birth mother (try a secondary member of Royalty from Africa, 2nd wife time!!! – and MJ II could be a REAL Prince – and of Pop – wonder if Pop is a sexual NLP, in which case perhaps better not to associate- as well . . . ) AND calling that child MJ *AGAIN* to train in a similar manner (minus beltings and violence of course, Gramps Jackson looks to have mellowed too much to be into that in any case . . .) . . . MJ-MKII (a real African Prince by blood AND without bleaching . . . )

I suggest this new MJ the II, start visiting with extant Royal families in Africa when he’s grown enough and indirectly adopting those Royals as family. Heck, even form an Imperial African Council out of African Royal familes and marry MLK’s descendants with the new African Emperor’s kids and a worldwide African Renaissance could well be on the way. Would Pres. Obama take the initiatives here?

Joe Jackson selling cheap fragrances in dreary Las Vegas mall – By Daily Mail Reporter – Last updated at 11:22 PM on 3rd February 2012

He formed one of the most successful musical groups of all time which he ruled with an iron fist.

But Joe Jackson has now been reduced to selling cheap aftershave at a Las Vegas mall.

How the mighty have fallen: Joe Jackson has been spotted selling cheap fragrances at a shopping mall

Sleeping on the job: Joe appeared to be dozing off as he worked

The late Michael Jackson’s father is seen here sat at his kiosk, surrounded by fragrances.

Joe wasn’t exactly swamped with customers and appeared to be dozing-off, according to celebrity website TMZ which obtained the image.

Joe was the special guest at the Julian Rouas Paris kiosk selling Jackson Perfumes underneath a famous sketch of The King of Pop.

To make matter’s worse – the whole operation may be illegal.

According to TMZ, Bravado International – which owns the trademark to all things Michael Jackson – is suing Julian Rouas Paris, alleging the company never got permission to use Michael’s name or image.

Mogul: Joe looked after his family of talented musicians

The music mogul managed his famous children in their various incarnations of singing groups.

He was in charge of The Jackson 5, Michael Jackson, La Toya Jackson and Janet Jackson.

Following the death of his son Michael, Joe has taken something of a backseat while his other family members have been seen in the spotlight more.

Joe turns 84 later this year.

Where are all the black women lining up in hopes of bearing an MJ II lookalike (psst lining up black ladies, your kid would be MJ I’s entire brood’s (Prince, Paris and Blanket) uncle or auntie didja know?)? Heck, if MJ Sr knows how to make cash, he could even figure out a Spanka-Claus franchise with himself offering beltings to star wannabe kids (lots of moms and dads looking to get their children would want something of MJ to rub off on their wannabe stars and would not pass this up) who can later get a tattoo that said – ‘MJ’s father belted me too’ at the mall! At 86, MJ Sr could have a good 10-20 years more to go, so lots of tattooed kids who ‘received’ a spot of MJ-ness, with the rest all lookalikes . . .

This is like that D and below-list supporting actress who could very well charge to have her picture taken with some guy burying their head (the one with the brain of course . . .  of course ‘wink’) in their bosoms . . . this guy is MJ’s dad!

Queen ‘Bersih’ meets Najib – by by Wong Choon Mei – 15th July 2011 (Malaysia Chronicle)

In Malaysia, misplaced adoration, Straw-women, Strawmen, War on January 30, 2012 at 2:16 pm
Queen ‘Bersih’ meets Najib Britain’s Queen Elizabeth greeted Prime Minister Najib Razak during an audience at Buckingham Palace in central London on Thurdsay. What could not be missed was the bright yellow dress worn by the British monarch, known for her subtlety and wit. But amused or not, Najib and wife Rosmah Mansor bowed low before Her Majesty despite the unmistakable the shade of yellow she sported and which had been adopted by Bersih, a Malaysian movement for free and fair elections that was recently outlawed by Najib. In the scandal sheets again over a gargantuan diamond ring said to be worth RM24.4mil (or about US$8mil), Rosmah also made sure to keep her hands tightly clasped during the photo-shoot. But even so, she could not resist wearing a string of pearls the size of marbles. However, it was not Rosmah’s jewellery or lavish spending that set tongues wagging.
It was the yellow of Queen E’s dress that drew attention. Even the flowers in the vase were yellow, and it is believed the Queen chose the colour to send a strong signal to Najib, who had ordered a harsh crackdown on a peaceful citizens march organised by Bersih last Saturday. The July 9 Walk for Democracy saw police shooting tear gas and chemicalized water directly into the crowds that thronged the streets of Kuala Lumpur, leaving thousands injured and one dead. More than 1,600 were arrested and several remain in remand without trial. Calls to resign Calls are mounting for Najib to step down but he has ignored these, galling his countrymen further with comments that underscore a growing arrogance and desperation to cling to power at all costs. “It was quite mild because although they were taken in, they were released after eight hours and they were treated really well. There was no undue use of force and the demonstrators were dispersed using minimum force,” Najib told CNN.
The United Nations and Washington have earlier in the week issued separate statements rebuking the Malaysian crackdown. “We are very concerned by the recent crackdown on peaceful demonstrators by the government in Malaysia,” Rupert Colville, spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights told AFP. “We are alarmed at the targeting of individuals for championing the rights of Malaysian citizens to express their opinions and to peacefully assemble.” At 10, Downing Street Bersih is a coalition of 62 top NGOs and had organised the July 9 march to draw citizens’ support for free and fair elections. But Najib insists there is nothing wrong with the existing system and has blamed Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim for stirring up trouble. Meanwhile, in London, Najib also met his British counterpart David Cameron for talks aimed at boosting bilateral relations. Earlier, the Malaysian leader was met on arrival at at the UK Foreign and Commowealth Affairs Office by its Secretary of State William Hague, before walking a short distance to meet Cameron at 10, Downing Street. In the Malaysian delegation was also Najib’s cousin, Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein. Hisham had outlawed Bersih in a bid to suppress its call for a cleanup of the country’s notoriously corrupt electoral system. He also gave the green light for a string of arrests that have been described as a “binge of madness” by the Malaysian civil society. Anyone who wore yellow in the days running up to the Bersih rally was arrested on the spot. Would Hisham arrest the Queen then? – Malaysia Chronicle

Maybe she has changed, but the fact that she said she’s not running for candidacy leaves her intent and loyalty to the Rakyat rather than BN doubtful. @harimau, you don’t know what England and this visit might represent to the free world, do you? Try half a century of colonialism, and the more recent Falklands War
@Hope said ‘They say what goes around comes around – and it has – in the form of the Queen in Yellow dress.’
@OZserver said ‘This queen is caring and compassionate, and, although her role as head of the Commonwealth is only symbolic, she is well briefed on it. She has in the past, displayed disagreement even against he own prime Minister, Margaret Thatcher, when the latter was showing sympathy to the racist regime of Ian Smith in Rhodesia, or the modern day Zembabwe. It is unfortunate that Mugabe has since made such a mess of Zembabwe. But the Queen’s instinct in sympathy with the African people is laudable.
@Ho Sai Yuen said, Queen Elizabeth is know for her wits even though as the British Monarch, she is strictly impartial and non partisan according to the British Royal tradition. @malaysia supporter said, the brits are ever so subtle….long live the queen.
Response : @Hope, @OZserver, @Ho Sai Yuen and @malaysia supporter, try the the Black Ruby of Abu Said, the Star of India, the Star of Africa AND the gemstones from the Peacock Throne of Iran, and any treasures from the Summer Palace held by any Englishman of any breeding ‘coming around’, aka being returned to their rightful nation owners first then praise. I’ll believe the compassion, impartiality and subtley bit when the above stolen loot is returned with a formal apology and appropriate monetary reparations with interest added, otherwise you’re just wanking on Mdm.Gotha’s (aka Queen Windsor) behalf.
@Ho Sai Yuen said, ‘The Chinese have an appropriate proverb on this: “When the mountain seems high, the bully tend to bow down and worship it, but if the mountain is no higher than himself, he will try to piss on it…”‘
Response : First you must be able to see clearly to decide if it really is a mountain or a molehill. You worship poorly.
@hahaha – holy laughter ! ! ! . . . the Holy Father, the Pope must finish the job in the Vatican . . .
Response : I think you forget the Russian and Greek Orthodox Popes are more valid and older than the Catholic Church which after being corrupted by European Royalty and society for centuries, in turn leading to the Protestent faction forming and their departure and colonization of USA (and formation in Ireland) which too many indulged in killing of Red Indians, the Orang Asli of USA.
So when the English claim to be Christians, they really are forgetting their REAL faith and cultural roots, the polytheistic Tuatha Dé Danann of Celtic Druidism and the Holy Book of the Isles being the Mabinogi. Monotheistic Christianity is the 2nd incarnation of Judaism (nominally derived from Ra-worship of the heretic Pharaoh Akhenaten (Amenhotep IV – named ‘Heretic’ for being who was too lazy to worship many gods and thus invented Sun or Ra-Worship)), with Islam the 3rd form of monotheism originated from Prophet Mohammed who was supposedly contacted by Angel Jibril. Put it simply, the ‘whites’ copied from the Middle Easterners wholesale what they call Christianity and they went about proselytizing the same during the colonial era and beating up all other civilisations, out of sheer emptiness in their hearts than cultivate and seek their roots.
@Non Umno said, Her majesty keeps track of all her former colonies.
Response : England is a colony within the world, the world is dominated by 4 races making up 3/4 or more of the population and landmass, Russians, Africans, Indians and Chinese. Friday, 15 July 2011 11:09 posted by pt
@pt said, ‘Poor Queen E must have been furously washing her hands after that.”Will these stains never be washed”‘.
Response : I think it should be the other way around but Najib though les sinful has not addressed apartheid or national issues honestly or with a PM’s authority.
@armchaircommentator said, ‘Her majesty is apolitical and has no foreign agenda. However she is well read and knowledgeable about members of the commonwealth and I suspect she was showing respect to Malaysia’s royalty and NR’s heritage?’
Response : If I were you, I’d stop being so pro-English. Colonialism and the after effects of Colonialism are indefensible. You’re allying with the wrong team fool.
@bigjoe said, ‘Well, if UMNO/BN does not change, maybe we should all say GOD SAVE THE QUEEN????’
Response : How about an Asian Monarch instead? What do you think the Agong is, chopped liver?
*** Commentary : This comment was not allowed on Malaysia Chronicle media portal. Either they are pro-Monotheism and fear Theological discussion based on truth, have been frightened into submission by who knows, the comments are against their agenda (whatever it is), or some of the commentators are within the clique. A media portal that does not respect freedom of speech does not deserve respect from it’s readers. This censorship trend on among the best of Malaysia oriented media portals, is quite disturbing. You serve the Rakyat and the reader, not your paymasters which if occurring makes you another media mercenary without journalistic ethics.
