916M: Insight: Perkasa, when will this all end?

Goodness! Perkasa just announced that they have spread their wings to Ireland.

Oh no, not only Ireland, but Indonesia and Egypt as well!

Sounds damn good!

200 new members (should be more actually), must be government scholars.

So, our country sends our creme de la creme overseas so that when they return, they can contribute to nation building.

Once overseas, they should be able to learn from another society and advance their minds.

But no, we have at least 200 of these people overseas who would support Perkosa.

Imagine the kind of people we are sending overseas.

When will this all end?

GE13???

Perkasa spreads its wings to Ireland

KUALA LUMPUR, June 30 — Controversial Malay NGO Perkasa launched a Perkasa Club in Ireland last week, adding some 200 students to its membership of close to 100,000.

Suara Perkasa, the NGO’s sole official newspaper poised to debut tomorrow nationwide, announced that the club would be headed by Perlis Perkasa head Haji Ameir Haji Hassan.

“We have 200 members in Ireland who joined us,” Perkasa vice-president Dr Zubir Harun told reporters today.

“They are undergraduate and post-graduate (students) that include Kadazans, Ibans and other Bumiputeras,” he added.

“I have received invitations from students in Belfast, Norway and Dublin who have requested Perkasa clubs to be set up in those places respectively,” Haji Ameir was quoted as saying in the Suara Perkasa newspaper article.

Besides Malaysian students in Western countries, Malaysians studying in Indonesia and Egypt have also asked Perkasa to set up clubs there, said Zubir.

Umno also has similar supporters’ clubs formed in other countries like Auckland, which was the 48th Umno Club to be set up.

The Malay NGO, led by independent Pasir Mas MP Datuk Ibrahim Ali, has been gaining clout among the Malay electorate on its strong, often provocative stand on Malay rights issues.

An example of Perkasa’s firebrand ways was their recent demand for Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong to be placed under the Internal Security Act (ISA) for allegedly questioning the social contract.

Although the NGO claims to be non-partisan, Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders have accused Umno of outsourcing its extremist views to Perkasa in hopes of gaining support from the conservative Malay electorate.

916M: Insight: They still think we are stupid …

Sheesh! They still think we are stupid.

They still think that we only care for the roads and rice bowl, ie once roads are nice paved and the economy back on track, we will vote them back.

They still think we can easily forgive and forget, and have forgiven and forgotten.

They still think of so many things, all off the mark.

Can’t they just see?

Blind or what?

Sheesh!

For sure, come GE13, we will wake them up once and for all.

Americk Sidhu: Response to Press Release by MACC Re: Bala Interview in London

It is nothing less than astounding to now realize that an authority such as the MACC, who would have been expected to have done everything in their power to investigate the very serious allegations made against the Prime Minister, his wife and his brother, to now forfeit that opportunity on tenuous and exasperatingly flimsy grounds knowing full well that much preparation has gone into organizing this interview and to then pull out at the very last moment contrary to the false perceptions created by them up till now.

Americk Sidhu

I refer to the press release by the MACC this afternoon to the effect that they will not be sending their officers to London to interview my client P.Balasubramaniam (Bala), as promised.

The excuses (they do not qualify as reasons), given are as follows:

1.   That the MACC will instead submit questions to which my client will give his answers in affidavit form.

2.   That the A.G’s chambers had provided advice along these lines to the MACC.

3. That precedence has been established in the Eric Chia case to the effect that a witnesses statement recorded overseas is inadmissible in a Malaysian Court.

4. That even if an affidavit was sworn by Bala it would not hold much weight in court if he was not available to testify.

These statements appear to be full of contradictions, misguided assumptions and ill-devised excuses used to decline the invitation to interview Bala which has been so vehemently pursued by the MACC in the past.

The recording of a witnesses statement can take place anywhere in the world as this statement forms part of the investigations conducted by the MACC  for the purposes of a potential prosecution and is not intended to be used as evidence in a Court of Law. If this were the case, then the statement recorded from Saiful in the ongoing Sodomy II trial of Anwar Ibrahim would have been willingly tendered by the prosecution as part of their case instead of being guarded jealously and hidden from view. So this is really no excuse for not recording a statement from Bala. It would never be tendered in court unless it is used to discredit the oral evidence of a witness  if that evidence contradicts a previously recorded statement. This process is called impeachment. That is why a statement is first recorded.

The MACC have assumed that Bala will not turn up in Court to testify.

Why have they assumed this?

Bala is ever prepared to testify against those personalities who have caused him and his family untold misery for the past 2 years. Was it not Bala who surfaced to tell his story as soon as he was able? Has he ever shirked from his duty as a law abiding citizen to assist the authorities in whatever way he could without compromising his own safety? All Bala asks is that the authorities concerned ensure that his well being is preserved if he is required to testify. Nothing more nothing less.

Bala could quite easily have gone into forced exile with RM5 million in his pocket and his life would have been a lot easier. Instead he has come forward to expose the misdeeds perpetrated upon him by a host of unsavoury characters who stretch all the way to the personalities holding the highest positions in government and their immediate family members.

If the MACC requires signed depositions from Bala to wrap up their investigations, may I suggest they consult the documents available all over cyberspace in the form of Bala’s 1st SD released in July 2008 and the 3 parts of his Q&A released in November 2009. These documents exhaustively detail all issues involved in this conspiracy and have been available for a long time now. If this is all the MACC required, why suggest that their investigations could not proceed without the cooperation of Bala? Why did Nazri inform Parliament that the MACC were emasculated in continuing with their investigations because Bala could not be found?

Bala was available at all times and the MACC knew this. We have documents to prove we had informed them of our willingness to cooperate as far back as December last year. Why is everyone becoming so coy at the eleventh hour?

It is nothing less than astounding to now realize that an authority such as the MACC, who would have been expected to have done everything in their power to investigate the very serious allegations made against the Prime Minister, his wife and his brother, to now forfeit that opportunity on tenuous and exasperatingly flimsy grounds knowing full well that much preparation has gone into organizing this interview and to then pull out at the very last moment contrary to the false perceptions created by them up till now.

This turn of events has certainly destroyed what little credibility the MACC had left and has confirmed the suspicions held by most right thinking members of society that they are a body existing solely to protect the interests of the powers that be and to ensure that any opposition to the government is dealt with by harsh, brash, unnecessary and lopsided vehemence with the sole purpose of destroying any legitimate questioning of the excesses of the ruling regime so that power is perpetuated in the hands of their masters.

As far as I am concerned, and I know I speak for the team of lawyers representing Bala in this matter, that we will all be in London at the Holiday Villas, Bayswater at 10 am on the 5th July awaiting the arrival of the 3 MACC officers who are supposed to interview Bala as arranged and as promised.

Let me add that whatever advice the MACC may have received from the Attorney General’s chambers is highly suspect and devoid of any legal basis, but instead smacks of a hastily assembled concoction of very weak excuses designed to avoid a potentially embarrassing situation for those who are obviously in control and who are able to hijack the machinations of the State and to manipulate the system to suit their own illegitimate agendas.

And if there are still any reservations as to whether the MACC were indeed genuinely planning on interviewing Bala in London then that misconception has now been destroyed by the fact that they had, up till now, not bothered to book the conference room at the Holiday Villas, Bayswater even though they had assured us they would handle the booking. They had never intended to interview Bala and have spent the past few weeks scrambling around for an excuse not to. The only problem is the excuse is ludicrous and everyone knows that.

We do not give a damn as to your grouses.

But we damn expect you to perform, and to make sure that PR gets into Putrajaya come GE13.

Sure, there will always be problems.

Sure, but we do not expect you to whack it out in public.

We expect you to whack yourselves in your caucuses or in your party.

We expect you to sort out your problems before you present anything to the Rakyat.

Damn! How stupid can you get?

Are you are thick as the BNers?

We thought they were thick, and we are now starting to realise that you are thick too, if not more so.

We have gone past the halfway mark.

Najib has said he will call for a surprise GE.

It can be any moment now.

If Khalid is really that useless, seek solutions to help him.

So, do not screw it up!

Damn! Don’t you bums get it?

We want to get to Putrajaya come GE13!!!

Haris Ibrahim: In the eye of the PKR storm: He who wields the unsheathed dagger

June 26, 2010

You get on a packed bus headed to Taiping.

Same journey for all 50 passengers, but each having their own agenda in wanting to reach that common destination.

The same can be said of the group of 15 PKR MPs, now called ‘G15′ by certain quarters, who are reported to be pushing an agenda to displace Khalid Ibrahim as MB of Selangor.

My sources tell me that G15 actually numbers 11.

Khalid claims to be in the dark about this agenda.

Yeah, right!

As does Azmin, even as he conceals the unsheathed dagger beneath the cloak of political intrigue and  deception.

“I don’t know of any move by MPs to start a petition on this matter. I am not denying it, I don’t know. How could I agree or disagree when I have no access to information…I am not part of this so I wouldn’t know, I was not at the meeting, when was the meeting honestly? Let me check with my colleagues”Malaysiakini reportedAzmin as saying of this rumoured uprising.

“If I wanted to pull him down, I would have done it after March 8 general election. Why now? His term is expiring soon, so why now? If that was my game, I should have done it before”FreeMalaysiaToday reports Azmin as responding to suggestions that he is behind moves to topple Khalid as MB.

Yet, the truth, as known by anyone who is anything in PKR, is that Azmin has long wanted to bring Khalid down, the former coveting the MBship of Selangor for himself even as the dust of the 12th GE began to settle.

PKR’s Elizabeth Wong has called on the G15 members to ‘show their faces’.

Huh!

The truth, again, is that anyone who is anything in PKR knows who they are.

That necessarily includes Anwar.

Indeed, at the just concluded PKR national congress in Kota Baru last month, the MP for Teluk Kemang, representing  10 other PKR MPs, brought to Anwar’s attention their grievances about Khalid’s leadership of the Selangor government, and their demand that Khalid be immediately relieved of the office of MB.

Anwar, I am told, assured Kamarul that their grievances would be looked into and addressed.

The next day, after delivering her presidential address, and at a press conference, Wan Azizah made it clear that Khalid would remain as MB of Selangor.

In her presidential address, she defended Khalid against the criticism leveled at him.

“He has defended the principles of transparency and accountability by chipping away at the wastage and corruption that have become part of Umno’s culture. The courage of the Selangor government in introducing Selcat – exposing all, is the renewal that we can be proud of”Malaysiakini reports her as saying.

Did Anwar, then, renege on any assurances given to Kamarul? Were there any assurances given to placate the group?

Only Anwar and Kamarul can tell us.

I had sms’d Anwar several times asking to meet in the hope of clearing this with him.

No response.

I guess he’s been too busy.

Now slighted by the president’s defence of Khalid, the group of disenchanted MPs began to make their moves.

And as they did, some from within their ranks, big boys within the party set up who, until then, were said to be aligned to he who wields the unsheathed dagger, either grew somewhat alarmed with the direction the group was taking or came to be viewed with suspicion, given the plot that was being hatched.

Whatever the reason, he who bites, another who holds the party purse strings and one of the party’s v-ps, either withdrew or were dumped from G15.

And in their place stepped in Gwo Burne and Kapar Mike.

So who make up the 11 in G15 now?

Here’s the list.

Manikavasagam of Kapar, Gwo-Burne of Kelana Jaya, Rashid Din of Merbok,Abdul Aziz Abdul Kadir of Ketereh, Kamarul Baharin of Teluk Kemang,Azan Ismail of Indera Mahkota, Mohd Yusmadi Mohd Yusoff of Balik Pulau, Zuraida Kamaruddin of Ampang, and Abdullah Sani Abdul Hamid of Kuala Langat.

That’s only 9, did you say?

Well, throw in that low-life, froggie Wee Choo Keong of Wangsa Maju, and he who wields the unsheathed dagger, and there’s your 11.

Now, if nothing else, the presence of Wee in this clandestine effort to depose the leadership in Selangor must cast serious doubts on the intentions of some, if not all, involved.

Unless Wee’s complicity is not known to all the other 10, which then lends a more sinister sheen to their agenda.

Why the move to unseat Khalid, then?

Last night, 17 out of 22 Selangor PKR division leaders turned up at MB Khalid’s house to pledge their support for MB.  Malaysiakini has a report on this HERE.

He who wields the unsheathed dagger was amongst the 5 not present. No reasons given.

Selangor PKR, the Aduns and the Exco members, it would seem, are, rightly or wrongly, generally supportive of Khalid.

If this whole issue is indeed about Selangor and little else, where do the non-Selangor MPs fit in?

What gives?

I spoke to several Selangor Adun and Excos before last night’s meeting at the MB’s residence.

All said the same. The problem with Khalid is that he is not a politician, but a corporate bureaucrat, and not a very good one, at that.

Quite a few said he’s not decisive enough.

And afraid to tackle some thorny issues head on.

And there’s little deliberation between him and other party leaders.

But he’s clean, they all say.

And there was no-one else to helm the state government in the wake of the 12th GE tsunami.

What about he who wields the unsheathed dagger, I asked.

“The word is that if you want to make money, align yourself to Azmin. Do you want him as MB?”, one Adun responded.

So what’s the beef that these MPs have with Khalid, then?

Contract opportunities and money, I am told.

Kamarul, a long time and loyal supporter of Anwar, and who apparently dug deep into his own financial resources to help the party, is said to be now up against the wall, in financial dire straits.

Yusmadi, it seems, enjoys a life style that exceeds his means. His wife, a legal practitioner, receives work from the Selangor state government but, it seems, that’s just not enough.

All, it seems, are moved by personal interest with little consideration for the people of Selangor.

And for one, that personal interest is about removing the competition for the race to the top.

“Everyone knows that Azmin wanted the MB’s post and has resented Khalid’s appointment. Azmin still wants the post but this has nothing to do with the well-being of Selangor”, the Adun I spoke to offered.

It would seem that he who wields the unsheathed dagger has set his sights beyond just the seat of power in Selangor.

Well beyond Selangor.

Much has come to pass since 8th March, 2008.

Syed Husin Ali has announced he will not be looking to defend his incumbent position as deputy president at the party elections this coming November.

Number 2 post is therefore up for grabs.

And whilst it was always assumed by certain quarters that Wan Azizah would make way for Anwar to rise uncontested to the position of party president, this now hangs precariously in the balance given the real uncertainty of Anwar remaining at large upon the conclusion of the ongoing Sodomy 2 trial, appeal and all.

Anwar, however, I’m told, has been insisting that he will not avail himself for the position of party president, much to the annoyance of many in the party.

Is number 1, too, ripe for the picking?

Who, in the party, are seen as likely candidates?

Khalid, for all the criticism that has rained on him, cannot be discounted.

And then there is the new kid on the block, Zaid.

He who wields the unsheathed dagger, too, fancies his chances.

A possible three-horse race, then?

And in comes G15, made up by a majority of non-Selangor MPs, maneuvering to finish off Khalid, leaving only Zaid to be dealt with on a  later date, if the internally sabotaged Hulu Selangor by-election is not seen as having done enough.

Against this backdrop, the G15, minus Wee, is beginning to look like a national team built along the lines of BN, to wrest power in PKR this coming November.

Why like BN?

Well, Gwo-Burne and Mike representing the ‘nons’ in an otherwise all-Malay team does look line BN all over again, does it not?

All this for an aspirant to high office?

Is this the politics of PKR that we should brace ourselves for?

Is this the politics that will pave the way for Pakatan Rakyat to Putrajaya?

Where is Anwar whilst this drama unfolds?

Make no mistake, Anwar is aware of all that is happening.

Yet he appears to turn a blind eye to this, seemingly unable to rein in his protege.

This does not appear to be the first time.

As two Sabah PKR divisional chiefs observed some time back, and reported in Malaysiakini“We don’t know what kind of hold Azmin has over Anwar and that disturbs us. Something is just not right here.

Indeed, little is right in PKR at the moment.

Much of what is dreadfully wrong is seen by many in party leadership as stemming from Anwar’s indecisiveness in dealing effectively with the cancerous cells within the party.

Remember Zul Nordin?

I just got this sms from someone who is at the PKR retreat at Shah Alam.

“If Anwar does not shape up, there will be no PKR in 6 months”.

I’ll end this post with an excerpt from Martin Jalleh’s ‘Please pack up and go, PKR’.

“Please, please PKR stop pushing your fanciful dreams about occupying Putrajaya when you are in such a pathetic and pitiful state with your prima donna politicians parading their shameless petty and puerile politics in public.As a party you have become laughable, and as RPK predicts you could be facing your last days!…Your endless intra-party squabbles, spats and skirmishes and splintered groups sicken those of us who once supported, voted and stood steadfastly by you…We are tired of your MPs and Assemblymen’s threats to resign, their taunts to one another to quit and their theatrics and tantrums to be turncoats…Your politicians are made up mainly of clowns who crap, crow, clamour for and cry aloud about change but cling on to their political charades, chicanery, claptrap and conspiracies, instead of collaborating at all costs in your professed commitment to bring about concrete change…Yes, go for your weekend retreat PKR leaders. I hope you will prove me and many others wrong but my guess is that you will still be a party weak, wavering, wobbling, wandering and wanting to do each other in…as you chart your way into political wilderness! The road to Putrajaya requires stomach, stamina, synergy, solidarity and the sacrifice of personal agendas for the larger national agenda. Sadly, this journey has been stymied by your somnolent, selfish, self-centered and supercilious political representatives, whom Bolehland can do well without”.

916M: Insight: World Cup more important than Malay rights …

Perhaps the Malays are the only race in the world which goes around claiming that they are weak and are in need of crutches.

Perhaps Ibrahim of Perkasa is the only one of a kind, the ultimate leader of a weak race.

Leaders are meant to inspire their followers, Ibrahim and his buddies are the only leaders in the world who tell their followers that they are weak and hopeless.

Such leadership.

Yeah, people cannot wake up in time for the Gertak event, because they watched the World Cup earlier. Actually, it is because the World Cup is for more important (or exciting) than Malay rights that they stayed up all night to watch the matches. If Malay rights are more important, then they should have attended the event to show that they believe and support what Ibrahim and that Gertak fella are saying. Therefore, there should have been 100,000 instead of the pitiful 600.

You really cannot get any more stupid than this.

Sad, but such is the case.

And we really cannot sit around waiting for them to reach enlightenment.

We have to do something about these silly people.

And the way to do that is to march into Putrajaya come GE13.

Nomad Kenyan: Building Society Through Defeatism: Malay Style

Being a student in Malaysia has been useful to me in many ways. You learn many new things, a new country, a new culture, people, food, etc. A beautiful nation with beautiful people, but probably a nation that has the worst political system. When you look from a far, when you see the dazzling Twin Towers, the sky crappers, the trains, the paved roads, the almost all tarmacked lanes, it is beautiful and satisfying, but beyond that, there is stinking political system, one devoid of decency and human good, a godless politics that thrives in indecency, skulduggery and simply outright demagoguery.

I remember Malaysia’s former Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi saying in 2006, ‘the Malays will do anything to achieve something in politics (or something like that) and that anything includes vomit inducing rhetoric and actions. He was right! He was booted out disgracefully after being stabbed in the back by some of his Cabinet Ministers.

Malaysia’s story is not new, its racial politics, stifling bureaucracy, bulging and ever increasing civil service, third world politics, controlled society, partisan bodies and unthinking religious entities are issues one reads about almost on daily basis. Malaysia is not a nation that has bright future. I remember as a kid, circa 1995 reading somewhere a robust statement made by Prof. Ali Mazrui, recognized as the one of the 100 most influential intellectuals today where he praised the nation and predicted a bright future. Prof. Mazrui was in particular intrigued by the then Deputy Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim. One decade later, you won’t hear the Kenyan-American professor talking of Malaysia.

That was when the economy was strong, institutional rot hidden from the public, social discontent minimal, political demagoguery not widely practiced, and Malaysia was surging. Dr. Mahathir and his then Deputy, Anwar Ibrahim were extremely popular in the Muslim (and non Muslim to a large extent) world. They were where the Turkish PM Recep Tayyip Erdogan is today. Unchallenged and probably unparalleled when measured against fellow Muslim leaders.

Then came 1998, where Dr Mahathir and Anwar clashed over the 1997/8 Asian Financial Crisis and some internal succession politics. Anwar was sacked, brutally beaten and jailed on fabricated charges of sodomy. Dr. Mahathir, realizing Anwar’s appeal both locally and abroad went overdrive to neutralize him. He did it (at least till he left power in 2003) but at the expense of Malaysia. Malaysia has never recovered from that humiliating experience since then and it will never. Make no mistake about it; neither Dr. Mahathir nor Malaysiawill recover from that ugly episode.

Anwar today is facing sodomy charges again. The new allegation would even beat the first one in stupidity. At least, in the first one, Malaysians were innocent enough to be shocked. Now, they aren’t. In fact, they have become accustomed to the brutality of the system that they smile, resigned to that fate. Only Chinua Achebe can describe their resignation and hopelessness like he did in his A Man of the People. Foreign students in Malaysia joke about this immoral politics. ‘Why doesn’t Malaysia introduce Bachelor in Sodomology’ they joke. Then they can shout to the world that they can (boleh) as they say in Malaysia.

This is a nation that’s losing its soul, its spiritual side, its human side. It is becoming concrete, merciless, immoral, godless and utterly ruthless. All the signs that the edifice is to come tumbling down are there, but the elite are interested in one thing: assassinating Anwar and they refuse to see the imminent danger.

But that’s not the subject here; it is the defeatism culture of the Malay leadership. Being a Somali ethnic myself, I’m in no position to blame others or point out their shortcomings, after all, my people have nothing to be proud of. May be Islam only, and even that Islam, they have rendered it cruel and tribal.

In Malaysia, there are three main races, the Malays who are the majority, the Chinese and the Indians, then there is motley of other races and tribes but politics revolves around the three main ones.Malaysia’s greatest challenge has been how to balance the economic disparity between the native Malays and the migrant communities who have made big (at least many of them) in Malaysia. The racial riots of 1969 define Malaysia till today.

After that deadly rioting, a new economic policy (NEP) was formulated. The target was to alleviate Malay poverty (plus the poverty of others), rearrange the economic imbalance, support Malays to get a foothold and make them have at least 30% equity. Four decades later, it stands at 19%. In those four decades, entire countries were built from scratch, of course others failed, but inMalaysia, they couldn’t manage one policy in four decades and worse, many continue to insist that the failed policy should be maintained. Like a drug addict who holds on to his fatal drugs, some Malays have become addicts. It is killing them, killing their souls, killing their humanity, killing their spirit, killing their will, killing their dignity, killing their Islam and killing their country.

The trouble is the Malay leadership. Having seen their people have become addicts, they lack the charisma to tell them that the nation must cross a new frontier and meet today’s challenges with new policies that are effective, economically sound and free of corruption. You can’t stick to a policy that failed. Four decades is what a nation needs to rise, not for a single policy to be implemented.

Of course there is Anwar Ibrahim, always the rabble rouser who called the policy obsolete and formulated a new policy. But rather than debating on the merits of his new policy, the ruling party, UMNO, and its apparatchiks dismissed Anwar as a traitor, IMF funded rogue who wants to destroy the Malays. To me, Anwar is a great leader and UMNO leaders are leaders. The difference between the two is that a great leader takes his people where they don’t want to be but aught to be and a leader takes his people where they want. And when you listen to what your people like PERKASA’s Ibrahim Ali and other Manglish speaking, Utusan consuming hordes want, you fail in your leadership role and that’s what’s happening in Malaysia.

In the four to five years that I have been in Malaysia, I have never heard a single Malay leader apart from Anwar Ibrahim and former Finance Minister and UMNO’s only conscientious member (apart from a blogger called Sakmongkol) Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah say the Malays CAN! I always hear, “The Malays are weak, the Malays can’t compete, the Malays don’t have the Chinese civilization, the Malays are not tough enough to survive on their own, the Malays need help, the Malays are under threat” and etc.

Dr. Mahathir, the former PM and a notoriously racial leader continues to stoke the embers of racism and warned the Malays that that they were losing Malaysia to the non-Malays. He knows they aren’t losing but his target is to scare villagers into supporting the ruling party and thus prevent his arch-rivals, Anwar and PAS leaders from coming into power. I have no problem with politics, but destructive politics that destroys the very fabric of your nation and mismanages the destiny of that nation is both immoral and evil.

When I hear UMNO Malay leaders humiliate their own people by saying they are weak, can’t compete and need perpetual crutches, I always ask myself: what’s their intention? When you publicly and before the world camera repeat and repeat that your people are a bunch of hapless people, what do you want the world to do? To issue a Guinness World Records’ certificate of collective stupidity to your people?

Why not praise your people instead? Why not say my people can? Why not raise up their spirit? Why not show them the opportunities the world has rather than cocooning them here alone? Why not remind them Islam and Allah’s order to Muslims to seek His bounties on earth and toil? A believer doesn’t fail and worse, a believer doesn’t engage in defeatism. “Ta-Ha. We have not revealed the Quran to you that you may be unsuccessful.” (20-1-2. Holy Quran, Shakir)

There was a Tab’ie (follower of the Prophet’s Companions) who one day came a long two men fighting. One was being humiliated. So he wanted to raise the spirits of the defeated guy. He reminded him of his faith, of his people’s past glories, of his ability, of grandfathers, of his own, and instantly the man was charged. I can’t recollect the entire story but I remember the Tabi’e also said had the other man being the one humiliated, he would have reminded him of many good things and helped him rise.

The moral of the story? Always remind your people of what’s good! Of their past glories to draw lessons, always point to their future. Remind them about their name and dignity. Tell them of the teachings of their faith. Islam is basically about creating success stories, not a whining society that’s hopeless. You are in a fight, a perpetual fight and this fight can’t be won through simplistic ideas. It needs resilience, patience, innovation, faith, sobriety, thinking, good leadership, honest administrators and just leaders (institutions).

This battle needs sacrifice. This battle needs toil and tears. Allah (sw) didn’t see it fit to send even His Prophets free food. There is nothing called free here. All our Prophets worked hard and were herdsmen. Why do you think they had to occupy the lowest of jobs to survive? It’s meant to remind us work is what’s important and earning halalincome is our destiny. Rent-seeking, corruption, sleaze, cronyism and opportunism destroy a nation.

Mukhtar al Bukhary is not a success story. Which part of meeting a minister in his private sitting room and cutting deals is a success? Can he stand tall and be proud? The world would laugh at him, but UMNO says that’s the success of NEP. Poorah! A successful story inspires generations or even nations. Bill Gates inspired nations. He invented something, promoted it and benefited billions. He continues to inspire billions. Can Bukhary do the same? He can’t. When you give Naza 18,000 APs and they make some easy money, it that a success story that can inspire the future Malays? Which part of it is a success?

But we can have a successful Malay community by sticking to the book, rule of law, Godliness, and meritocracy. You deserve: you get, you don’t deserve: you won’t get it. Period! We need to have some policy to help the Malays, but we need results as well. I want to remind the Malays one thing, if you are unjust, you will lose this nation. That’s how God’s creation order works. Imam Ibn Taymiyyah said: “God upholds the just state even if it is unbelieving, but does not uphold the unjust state even if it is Muslim.”

In other words, God would help and sustain a non-Muslim person/state that’s just than a Muslim person/state that is not. This is simple because the Prophets were sent to bring justice and God’s creation order stands on justice. If you want to have NEP, include the Chinese and Indian orphans and widows and the needy among all races. That way, you will continue to rule and prosper. But if you think voting PERKASA and UMNO will make you safe and sustainable, then you are mistaken. You will drown sooner than you can imagine. It is justice that would maintain you and settle for good leadership.

There can no be 100% successful policy or state, but being righteous and godly, being fair and just, being honest and incorruptible helps. And please, for once, defeat PERKASA and PERKASA minded parties. If you don’t look inward, if you don’t ask critical questions and examine yourselves, if you believe the hyperbole of PERKASA and its financiers, there will come a time when it is too late to salvage this nation and regret comes later. May Allah (sw) bless u all and guide us! Amin!

“And those who strive in Our (cause),- We will certainly guide them to our Paths: For verily Allah is with those who do right.Holy Quran 29: 69)

916M: RPK: The Arsehole is Boss …

“Sad, very sad, when one arsehole decides the future of a country of 27 million people.”

Yes, very very sad indeed. One arsehole sacrifices himself and attempts to thwart the future of a nation.

Very powerful arsehole indeed!

But we shall not be shaken, we shall not be thwarted by this arsehole, for we shall ensure that this arsehole remains a true blue arsehole, not the bossy arsehole who to an extent deserves a little more respect.

How?

GE13!

RPK: The Arsehole is Boss

Thursday, 03 June 2010 Super Admin

Today, I thought I might as well jump onto the bandwagon and also talk about arseholes. After all, I don’t want anyone to allege that Malaysia Today is not keeping up with the latest issue.

NO HOLDS BARRED

Raja Petra Kamarudin

One day, all the different parts of the body had a meeting to discuss who should be the boss.

The brain said it should be the boss because it did all the thinking.

The eyes said it should be the boss because it did all the seeing.

The ears said it should be the boss because it did all the hearing.

The mouth said it should be the boss because it allowed the body to eat.

The tongue said it should be the boss because without it the body would not be able to talk or taste any of the food that it ate.

And so the debate continued with the hands, feet, fingers, toes, neck and all the other parts of the body arguing their case as to why they should be the boss. And the debate went on without any consensus until the arsehole butted in (pun intended) and argued that it should be the boss.

There was a moment of total silence before all the parts of the body rolled on the ground laughing uncontrollably. “You can’t be the boss,” they replied. “You are just an arsehole.”

This made the arsehole very angry and it clammed up and refused to open. Nothing could enter the body through the arsehole, not even a plastic device. More importantly, nothing could leave the body and after a week or so the brain became mushy and could no longer think. The eyes became watery and could no longer see. The ears became zingy and could no longer hear. The mouth, tongue, hands, feet, fingers, toes and whatnot all became weak and could no longer function properly.

By the tenth day the body was at the point of death and all the parts of the body relented and agreed that the arsehole should be the boss. The arsehole had clearly proven that it was the most superior part of the body.

From that day on the arsehole became the boss and ruled over the entire body. And this proves you do not have to be smart to become the boss. You just need to be an arsehole. And Malaysia is living testimony to this doctrine that only arseholes can become the boss.

One day, a woman went to her doctor to discuss a ‘problem’ she was facing.

“My husband loves anal sex,” she told the doctor.

“So?” the doctor asked.

“Well, is it safe?” asked the woman.

“Do you enjoy it?” asked the doctor.

With a blush on her face and not daring to look the doctor in the eye, she admitted that she does.

“Well, carry on then,” the doctor replied, “as long as you also enjoy it.”

“But can I become pregnant through anal sex?” asked the woman.

“Of course you can,” the doctor replied. “Where do you think politicians come from?”

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

“And what is the purpose of the two stories above?” you might ask.

Well, considering that the world is crumbling around us — the Middle East is bringing the world to the brink of a Third World War with Israel’s attack on the Peace Flotilla, three Israeli submarines are now in the Persian Gulf and are aiming its nuclear missiles on Iran, the three PIGs (Portugal, Italy and Greece) are going bankrupt and may drag the entire world including Malaysia down with it, and much, much more — yet the entire country is focused on just one issue, Saiful’s arsehole. So, today, I thought I might as well jump onto the bandwagon and also talk about arseholes. After all, I don’t want anyone to allege that Malaysia Today is not keeping up with the latest issue.

And below is a graphical presentation of what is the number one issue for Malaysia and which will decide the future of this country — whether Anwar had or had not penetrated Saiful’s arsehole with his pecker.

Sad, very sad, when one arsehole decides the future of a country of 27 million people. I wonder, 100 years from now, when Malaysians look back on 2010, what the historians would be saying about this period of Malaysian history. India had its ‘Black Hole of Calcutta’ in June 1756 that changed the history of the Indian continent and planted the seed of the Indian nationalist movement. Are we going to see the ‘Black Hole of Saiful’ in June 2010 also change the course of Malaysian history?
