Story of a Secular Muslim

Posted: 05 Dec 2009 10:37 AM PST

I am by no means an expert on the topic of Islam or Muslims. However, by accident of birth, being Muslim was thrust upon me.

My chances going in were not too bad — about a quarter of the world's population is Muslim. I live with the title and try to make sense of the daily newsworthy events that keep my people in the news.

It was not until the fourth grade that I even knew I was Muslim. I was in grade school in Karachi, Pakistan, checking out a library book — an illustrated Bible — when my friend pointed out to me that I had picked the "wrong" book.

He appeared to be a little upset by my choice, as did some of the other kids. Any deviations from the norm, I concluded, would raise unnecessary alarm. My friend, since then, has become a militant atheist, but that is a story for another time.

I continued along a peaceful yet godless path until 8th grade when another friend confronted me with a deep philosophical question: Was I a Sunni or a Shiite?

Being Muslim, it appeared was not really as simple as I had thought — I would need to make some difficult choices. My friend gave me a well rehearsed summary of the pros of cons of each group (heavily biased in favor of being Shiite, of course, because he was one) and provided me with the choice.

At last, I could exercise my free will! I decided to be Shiite until my grandmother stepped in after a week and in a matter-of-fact manner said that I was a Sunni, not a Shiite, and these things "cannot be changed."

Many more years of peaceful indifference toward religious matters passed and I ended up a freshman at New York University. It was then that the conflicts associated with being Muslim came to light.

My suite-mate hypothesized, a week into living together, that the college must have been trying to do an experiment on me by making me live with a Jew, a Hindu and a Catholic. Muslims, it appeared, had a lot of enemies and, for the first time, being one appeared to have more to do with the conflicts rather than any particular philosophical doctrine.

The few Islamic Center meetings I attended at college would invariably extend into speeches about the Palestinian conflict, the Kashmir conflict, the Chechnya conflict, the Bosnian conflict. Somewhat dispassionate about such issues, I chose to define myself as an undefined creature with no real place in society — the secular Muslim.

Since 9/11 the nature of the dialogue has changed quite a bit. I experienced the strong backlash against Muslims. Medical school interviews in the weeks after 9/11 were uncomfortable and borderline racist. Even my closest friends appear to place me on the wrong side of a line of "danger." Everyone is more aware of the fact that I have a Muslim name. The more cultured among them show a genuine curiosity about "our kind." Others mask their fear with jokes and frustrated questions along the lines of: "Why every time a bomb goes off, a Muslim person is behind it?" Yet others try to be unnaturally polite, likely suppressing undesirable emotions.

But with this increased awareness of the Muslim, there is a lack of appreciation of the nuances within our group. The reality is that many Muslims are secular. We do not pray five times a day, do not read the Koran and have not spent much time inside a mosque. We only turn to Islam when a child is born, someone gets married or someone dies.

We certainly have no interest in participating in civilizational battles. We are, in fact, loathed by the religious minority. And yet we have no clear voice, no representation and no one in the Western world appears to be aware of our existence. Every time a terrorist attack occurs, we suffer the most.

We are trying to succeed in life, trying to be effective doctors, lawyers, business people, artists and other kinds of professionals, and it hurts us, not the jihadists, when society keeps us at more and more of a safe distance "just in case."

To defeat the threat of radical Islam, I suggest that the answer lies among the people who are the least Muslim.

It is only the secular forces within Islam that can subdue the screams of radicalism. We are united by a lack of indoctrination, a belief in personal freedom and a similar accident of birth and we must unite to properly forge a positive and progressive future for Muslims worldwide.

An Investment Opportunity in Alternate Energy

Posted: 05 Dec 2009 10:36 AM PST

I was alerted about the initial IPO of Longyuan Electric Power Group sometime in early November by my Bankers, Longyuan is a company in China and the recent Initial Public Offering (IPO) in Hong Kong raised about USD 3 billion by selling 2.15 billion shares at HK$8.16 per share.

Longyuan is in the business of providing energy through windpower and solar energy and has the biggest concession in China for windpower. Windpower is the the present solution to fossil fuel and is known as "Clean Energy" or "Renewable Energy", As fossil fuel can only diminish and a source of poison to the environment that contributes to Global Warming which have become more and more a threat to planet Earth.

There are not too many such companies in this part of the world that generates clean energy. This is a longterm investment opportunity and the possibility of multiplying your investment over a certain time frame as the world's reserve in oil production can only reduce.

The embattled Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) chief Ahmad Said Hamdan has opted for early retirement and he is to be replaced by his deputy, Abu Kassim Mohamed. It is learnt that Ahmad Said, 57, would begin his leave starting Dec 14.Ahmad Said has been under tremendous pressure from the opposition to quit after Malaysia plummeted in the Transparency International ranking by nine places from last year's 47th to 56th in its global corruption perception index. Said Hamdan has opted for early retirement and he is to be replaced by his deputy, Abu Kassim Mohamed.

The tragic case of Teoh Beng Hock has taken a supernatural twist, with three individuals reportedly having seen his spirit roaming in the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission's Selangor headquarters in Shah Alam. According to China Press, his apparition was spotted on the fifth floor of Plaza Masalam, where his remains were found, and on the 14th floor, where the MACC office is located. The report said a security guard and two MACC officers had bumped into the spectre. The sightings took place sometime in October, more than two months after the 30-year-old's death. The security guard, who wished to remain anonymous, said he did not see Teoh's face, but the apparition was clad in the same clothes which the deceased had worn when he came to the MACC office. "I saw his dead body after the fall. I am sure that it was Teoh even though I could only see him from the back," he said, adding that the incident happened around 6.30pm. Recalling the spine tingling encounter, the security guard said he went to the washroom located on the fifth floor where he suddenly heard footsteps. The other officers were not on duty at the time. "I had a strange feeling. Usually at that time, nobody would be around. So I walked out of the toilet… then I saw a man in front of the lift, he was wearing a black coat and white pants," he said. At that point, it did not strike the security guard that this could be Teoh's spirit. "I asked where he was going as no one was upstairs. He just answered 'I am going upstairs', the lift door opened and he went in. That was when I thought it could be Teoh, so I rushed to the security room to check the CCTV and saw there was nobody in the lift," he said. The security guard also related the experience of a MACC officer. "He was sitting on the sofa watching TV when he suddenly felt something biting his neck, and when he checked, he found a red mark on his neck. When he was sitting in the reception area, he saw Teoh walk out from the office. Then the officer felt as if someone was pulling his leg. He got scared and rushed out," he said. Following this, the security guard said the officer requested for a transfer to the MACC headquarters in Putrajaya and "never came back." Teoh, who was the former aide to Selangor exco Ean Yong Hian Wah, was found dead after a marathon questioning session by MACC officers which dragged into the wee hours of the morning. Although the official version is that Teoh had committed suicide, his family refused to believe that the father to be, who was slated to get married the next day, would take his own life. Following a massive public outcry, the government ordered for an inquest to be held to determine the cause of death. Teoh's remains were exhumed for a second post-mortem after renowned Thai pathologist Porntip Rojasunand made the startling revelation that there is an 80 percent probability of homicide. The inquest continues on Dec 9.

From biblical times people have been living in a global village. This is simply owing to the fact that man is the agent of change, is guided by his ego and endeavours to be adventurous. That is why no matter how great may be the system of a democratic government of any sovereign state, we will find that some people would still have the urge and find the need to immigrate to another country.

Malaysia, is not an exception. The aborigines are the only people of this land. Each and every one of the citizens had come to this land as immigrants. Some were forcefully brought to this land by the British. As for instance, the majority of the Indians from the south of India, who were uprooted from their homeland and brought over here to work in the plantation sector, for the benefit of the British Empire.

Then we have the Chinese who by nature have been men of commerce have frequently visited the Malay-Archipelago, as it was then called, even before the 13th. century, where the main port of call was, Malacca. Over a period of time, since immigration laws were non existent at that period of time, they too settled down within the various states of the Peninsula of this country.

Between the 7th. and the 13th. century the kingdom of Srivijaya which originated in Palembang in Sumatra extended its influence and controlled the Straits of Malacca. They adhered to Mahayana Buddhism. Then by the end of the 12th. century Srivijaya had been reduced to a small kingdom and the Majapahit empire became dominant. Parameswara was a Hindu Prince who had runaway from Sumatra and settled down in Temasek now known as Singapore.

When the raiders from Majapahit attacked Temasek, he fled to Muar and later founded the kingdom of Malacca. During that period Malacca was the centre of trade. Traders from Java, Sumatra, Borneo, Celebes,  Moluccas, Burma, Siam, Cambodia, India, Arabia and China traded in the port of Malacca.

So the people who call themselves as Malays are actually a "Rojak" of all the above nationalities. Let us take a closer look at the so called Malay leaders of the past and the present.

The Tunku has Thai blood. Razak and Najib have Bugis blood and they originate from Sulawesi. Hussien Onn and Hishammuddin have Arabic blood. Mahathir has Indian blood. Abdullah Badawi Chinese blood. And all the other so called Malay politician have the blood line of any one of the traders of the Nations that carried out trading activities in Malacca in the 14th. century and thereafter.

There is another interesting feature that has arisen since we attained Independence in August 1957. There is a great deal of inter-marriages taking place with the existing cocktail mixture of the so called Malay women. So, would it not be correct to state that for a person to claim to be, of the Malay race, it would be useless or superfluous? The answer would be in the positive. The only thing that these useless or superfluous race have in common or compel others who want to marry them, is to follow Islam.

The question is, how could, a cocktail mixture of the blood line of different nationalities, constitute to be that of a particular Race?

Now let us seek the assistance from the Little Oxford Dictionary. According to it the word "race" means: each of the major divisions of mankind; group of persons or animals etc. (regarded as) common stock; posterity of.

So based on the dictionary meaning there, exist no "common stock" in the cocktail mixture of the blood line of the useless or superfluous Malay "race". At best, these people are an outcast, and can only be referred to as a people of a nation and can only be identified as having a nationality and not a race.

Looking back in time, It is now clearly apparent that Onn Jafaar was perfectly right when he had suggested in 1951 that the United Malay National Organisation(UMNO) should open its membership to all non-Malays. But Tunku made a grievous mistake.

The damage has been done. The facts are now clear, that all the component parties in the Barisan National and in particular, the Malaysian Chinese Association(MCA) and the Malaysian Indian Congress(MIC) have been outright incompetent and negligent and have permitted a useless or superfluous Malay race to highjack the Federal Constitution in broad daylight, for the last 52 years.

They have failed to realize that the constitution sets out the framework and the rules for the government in a codified form. It would be hopeless for the populace to read the articles of the constitution as they would not be able to comprehend its legalese. For that matter even lawyers find it difficult to understand the language unless they specialize in the field of constitutional law. A good case in point is the Nizar –V—Zambry case which is before the Federal Court for a decision.

Whilst the Federal Constitution stipulates as to what would be the principles of an autonomous political entity, it would also define the structure, procedure, powers, duties and responsibilities of the various actors of the government. It would also limit the government's authority on certain rights guaranteed for the people. It is the supreme law of the country and applies to all other laws.

The constitution is our Bill of Rights. We now find it inherently improbable that the component parties in the BN government had willingly authorized the UMNO which is an outcast and note, as the cocktail of people are not even considered a race to have dominated the seat of power for the last 52 years and completely destroyed all the established institutions of the state and have in the process made the machinery ineffective, inefficient, unaccountable, incompetent and are not transparent. Further nepotism, cronyism, corruption and abuse of power have become the order of the day.

It has always been the hope and the aspiration of the people that they have certain fundamental rights where inevitably all the people of different culture and faiths can interpenetrate in a dizzying pace. But unfortunately because of the negligence and the incompetence of the MCA and the MIC, we are now facing a political scenario which is in a state of flux and more akin to a soap opera. UMNO has gone to the stage of not even tolerating or respecting other faiths other than Islam.

For example, the resent cow-head incident at Shah Alam or the case of the confiscation of 15,000 Christian Bibles printed and imported from Indonesia where "God" is referred to as "Allah" or Christians are not allowed to use the word "Allah".

How low can these misfits go to, to dominate a nation of free people?  How can  they have the right to govern? Apart from high jacking the constitution they have psychologically de-constitutionalised the fundamental rights of other people of their faiths.

They even do not understand what is stated in the Holy Qur'an that is, in chapter XXIII, The Believers, where at verse 90 it states: " We have sent them the truth but they indeed are liars." And at verse 91 it states: " No son did Allah beget, nor is there any god along with Him: (if there were many gods), behold each god would have taken away what he had created, and some would have lorded it over others! Glory to Allah! (He is free) from the (sort of) things that attribute to Him!

If these UMNO leaders like Najib, Hishammuddin, Muhyhiddin  and other leaders do not understand the simple issue that there is only one God but we being people of different faiths venerate  God in our own way, that clearly demonstrates how intellectually arrogant,  dishonest and how shallow is their capacity to think.

If that is the case, they are not fit to be the leaders of this nation and are not astute and capable as the leaders of the Pakatan Rakyat. That is why they create flip-flop policies all the time as they have no adequate knowledge and experience to argue and to continue to be able to argue on all spheres of their set policies.

They are unable to give recognition to meritocracy but recognize mediocrity. This is clearly apparent in all the senior appointments in all the established Institutions of the government, the government linked corporations, and the government established universities and even the banks and insurance companies.

Further they do not seem to understand between practice, substance and the application of skills as is seen in the giving out of tenders for the huge government, projects or between the economic significance versus the non-economic unjust enrichment under the New Economic Policy which has been around for some 40 years or so. They are unable to fathom the requirements of local industries versus multi-national corporations as there is a total mismatch of the so called highly qualified professionals in the employment market.

In this day and age with the wake of scientific revolution being in a state of flux, UMNO leaders let religious leaders or organizations to carry out their struggle to find plausible and compelling methods and application to implement the ancient wisdom to modern lives. Is it not practical to note that a man's obligation to God is a personal matter and only that individual is personally answerable to God for his misdeeds. Or are these holy men going to take a trip on the passing of every man or woman of their faith to mitigate with God on behalf of the people they are endeavouring to prosecute. They know that it is impossible for them to make such trips. So why can't they let sleeping dogs, lie. They are fighting a fruitless battle.

Finally, may the government leaders use their good sense.  As they say, when a ritual and a ceremony is authentic and attuned to the reasonable satisfaction of people, they will be fired up with imagination and their insight will be evoked and it may even touch their, heart, otherwise these leaders are wasting their efforts at the expense of the tax payer.

Therefore, to prevail in the current face economic depression and lack of foreign direct investment and the current widespread malaise faced by the leadership of the government, we realize that we need leaders with a vision of leadership which will be rooted in the enduring sense of the application of human wisdom with courage and compassion and not BN leaders.

My inner novel: imagining Malaysia

Posted: 05 Dec 2009 08:04 AM PST

By Bunga Pakma

The rain is coming down outside my office window.  I see the drops hitting the surface of puddles and raising, without much enthusiasm, short-lived rings that spread and vanish into one another and are obliterated by the next falling meteor.  The covering sky sheens dully like tarnished aluminium; through the tinted window it more resembles lead.  Inside, the mechanically cooled air sits on my skin with a chill.

It's December.  The Gregorian year is hurtling towards its end and its rebirth. The schools are empty.  Christians are celebrating Advent and the expectation of Christmas, and retail merchants are hoping for a spike in sales, for consumption, given any excuse, is a religion open to all.

As the days pass in Malaysia one gets a strange sense of seasons passing in review.  The past two weeks have brought us baking sun that has lifted the thermometer over 40ยบ, thunderstorms of apocalyptic fury, and today, winter as far as we can be said to experience winter.  It's an indoor day, and a nice hot bowl of laksa strikes one as just the thing for lunch.

Events in the public sphere seem now and again to doze as if hibernating in fits.  We haven't suffered a political thunderstorm in a while, and the torrent of news has slowed to a drizzle.  Meantime it's all water, and we still get wet.

I've been reading plenty of novels lately, almost a book every day.  For someone like without a TV or close friends nearby, reading becomes the most important way of getting out of my own skull and refreshing myself after the day's work is done.  Reading is companionship.

At the same time I feel rather as though I myself am in the middle of a novel.  It's a minor novel, with no drama except as ideas, impressions and emotions interweave, un-weave, play and conflict. While actions unfolds only within the theatre of my sensibility—my mind's inner senses of eye, ear and all the rest, a setting that anyone who has read James Joyce knows well—I myself am only one character in the story, and I'm trying to make sense of the plot as it moves me along, feeling my way in as much uncertainty and guess as any Leopold Bloom.

My novel concerns itself with what I am doing here, and in what direction I'm going.  The setting is Malaysia, and naturally the many large and varied narratives that wind around me and develop themselves independently of me affect my narrative, too.

Coincidence is an important device in fiction.  By coincidence I picked up Anthony Burgess's  Nothing Like the Sun, a novel on Shakespeare's love-life, and was drawn back to his novels of Malaya and Brunei.  By coincidence I learned that Benedict Anderson, famed for his exploration of nationalism, Imagined Communities, was speaking at a conference in KL, and I attended his talk.  So primed by the (richly muddy)confluence of the scholarly and the imagination, I went about with new eyes, looking at everything here as in search for clues to solve a mystery.

To state Anderson's thesis as briefly as I can, it is peoples' imagination that holds a nation together. If enough Malaysians think they're Malaysian, ergo Malaysia exists. (John Maynard Keynes said something similar of money: "The dollar is a dream everybody is dreaming at once.") Take that concept and think how it applies to Malaysia.  There is a certain Imagined-Malaysia that almost everybody imagines, whose components are ringgits and rice and the place where they were born and grew up, the IC, driving license and passport.

You can see that plenty of other I-Malaysias co-exist. I won't talk about "race"  but each linguistic/cultural loyalty imagines Malaysia differently, not divisively.  Dayaks of all tribes are intermarrying with one another, and more and more they imagine a pan-Dayak community, to which they all belong. Diversity in itself is a good thing.

Then we have I-Communities thrust on us.  "1Malaysia" as a slogan is plastered everywhere.  No one knows what imagination it's supposed to represent.  BTN has been kept in the dark for decades.  First I heard about it was when Judge Ian Chin told us last year about the "boot camp" he was forced to attend.  Here we have a community being imagined in detail (though probably quite sloppily) whose aim is to supersede all other narratives whatsoever.  One would like to know the plan.  The "imagineers" at work in UMNO may not speak their minds plainly, for obvious reasons, so we get only shreds and patches of a national narrative stuck together in a ground of inconsistency and obfuscation.

Turning to a deliberately and aesthetically I-Community in the Malaya of the late fifties Anthony Burgess portrayed in his Malayan Trilogy, we find quite a contrast. Amir Muhammad notes "…the wide range of characters, of every possible peninsula ethnicity. It's the most vibrant depiction yet of our Truly Asian but multiracial society. The jokey, pomposity-puncturing allusions to local mores and hypocrisies have not gone stale."1 Burgess switches registers constantly.  Satire, caricature, humour, irony, pathos, and simple narrative image a Malaya whose peoples face profound moral complexities and uncertainties.

Not long ago our Founder SKY wrote about the possibility of a Malaysian literature in English.  Those musings, too, thickened the plot of my inner novel.  As I raced through the dark alleys of my imagination, pursuing the latest lead to my riddle, I came to an unexpected fork.  Poets, as all great poets have said (the term includes novelists), forge the consciousness of the people.  Now, is the National Narrative so boring because we don't have any good writers? Or is Malaysian fiction so uninspiring because the N-N so shabby and ramshackle?

Sarawak's narrative was established forty years ago and has remained static ever since. That narrative is—a certain Melanau family will hold hegemony forever. Taib will accumulate to himself all wealth, all power, drawing the life from all other communities in the State, and this will go on without stop until all resources are exhausted.  Nothing has changed in 40 years.  One might point to "development" as a part of the plot that moves forward, but in fact, who can tell its direction? Kuching gets a gimcrack DUN. Dams are playing out tired old black & white scenes from the Great Depression. Hoover Dam did bring light and water to the American West, but in our version the Dust Bowl howls more furiously.

The challenges and misery of the 30s gave strong material to engaged and earnest writers. A novelist like John Steinbeck changed the way Americans looked at themselves. It is a sad thought that stasis may become unstable and give writers something to really write about.

Gates of 'racism' slam shut on Chin Peng's return

Posted: 05 Dec 2009 03:32 AM PST

Once, the very mention of his 'nom de guerre' had struck fear and reverence in the hearts of many. Now, Chin Peng is an 85-year-old grandfather, yearning to return to his homeland. Hailing from Perak's quiet hamlet of Sitiawan, the once rifle-bearing rebel, whose real name is Ong Boon Hua, wants to visit the graves of his parents and reunite with his family. But the Malaysian government is unrelenting in rejecting his wish, its leaders proclaim that the secretary-general of the disbanded ...

Cuba, Venezuela and Malaysia voting against. condemning Iran's nuclear capabality!

Posted: 05 Dec 2009 07:10 AM PST

The world will read it now simply as Najib, Castro and Hugo Chavez  trio going against an International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) sponsored resolution  made by Germany condemning Iran for its uranium enrichment program. 
Sources told BarkingMagpie that the United States of America was a tad confused with Malaysia's stance to vote together with Cuba and Venezuela against the condemnation of Iran nuclear technology which can lead to making nuclear bombs.
"While the USA could easily understood  Cuba's  and Venezuela's stance, but we were puzzled and we were wondering if Prime Minister Najib knew about the voting against the resolution," said this source.
As a Malaysian I would not like my prime minister to be associated with the likes of Castro or the firebrand Chavez,  We are against the proliferation of nuclear bombs so therefore we must condemn countries that does not adhere to the nuclear non-proliferation treaty  in which Malaysia is a member.  Read below:

 "Iran's Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki on Monday criticized the recent International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) resolution against Iran as well as those countries who cast "unjust and discriminatory" votes against the country, the official IRNA news agency reported.
"The recent resolution issued by the IAEA against Iran has weakened the international body," Mottaki was quoted as saying.
"We hope these countries voting against Iran will review their attitude wisely," Mottaki made the remark in a press conference in Tehran.
The International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) board of governors passed a resolution during a meeting on Friday in Vienna, calling for the "full cooperation" of Iran to clarify all outstanding issues involving its nuclear program.
It was reported that the resolution contained a strong call on Tehran to implement the relevant UN Security Council resolutions, as well as all the transparency measures the IAEA needed to restore confidence in the exclusively peaceful nature of Iran's nuclear program.
"We have lauded Malaysia, Cuba and Venezuela for their brave votes and will also take into consideration those which abstained in the voting," said Mottaki.
IAEA's Friday move was the first adoption of a resolution against Iran after the one adopted in February 2006. The 35-member board of governors of IAEA passed the resolution with 25 voting for, six abstentions, one absence while Cuba, Venezuela and Malaysia voting against.
"We cannot tolerate discrimination in international relations under any circumstances," he said, adding that "if there is a right for every country in an international treaty or convention, it should be applied to all."
Western powers suspected Iran of attempting to build nuclear weapons, but Tehran said its nuclear program was aimed at generating nuclear energy for civilian purposes.

New Puppet at MACC?

Posted: 05 Dec 2009 12:43 AM PST

The Deputy Chief Commissioner of the Malaysian Anti Corruption Commission, Datuk Abu Kassim Mohamed has been promoted the "New Boss" in place of the "early retirement" of Datuk Seri Ahmad Said Hamdan.

So for the new boss it is only proper to first express his thanks and gratitude to the government for his promotion, he said "I thank the government for the trust they have in me." and he added "The most important thing right now is the support from the public. The MACC cannot perform at its fullest capacity without the public's support."

So the government appoints him and he is grateful for whoever (in the government) that gave him the top post. And now can he start investigating the government for graft as there have been so many reports on abuses and corruption by top government officials and politicians from the ruling elite. Will he investigate his bosses now that they have appointed him?

What public support does he need? The public will always be supportive, if he is true to the duty and performance of the job and are seriously fighting and defending the nation against the evil of corruption.

If Malaysia is serious about fighting corruption than they should emulate their immediate neighbors Singapore and now Indonesia and others who had been successful in the fighting graft.

Just look at the Indonesian's Corruption Eradication Commission known as the "KPK" which is a fully independent body free from the influence of politics and has wide ranging powers in the fight against corruption and up till today, its achievements includes senior politicians of the higher house of People's Representative Council (DPR), the chief of police, provincial governors, city mayors, a central bank governor and even the son in law of the President.

The Fight against Corruption always starts at the top and can be seen  in the initial years of the  famed Hong Kong's  ICAC (Independent Commission Against Corruption) and other independent commission.

Malaysia's fight against corruption is seen as superficial and made worst by garnering the perception that it is now a political tool against the innocent and the opposition. The MACC has achieved world fame through the Teoh Beng Hock fiasco! And not forgetting the infamous joke of investigating  the Malaysian Against Cows and Cars incidents.

Corruption is Evil!

Drool And Potong (DAP)

Posted: 05 Dec 2009 01:09 AM PST

The Tales of A Drool and A Potongman

Ah Boy is Drooling and Ah Bah has obtained an honorary PhD in Potong Lanchau. 

Together they're supposed to give all Malaysians a new hope. The game plan is Drool And Potong wanna join the other 2 existing Potong Gang (without their blessing)  and all of them will sell to only one community that still consider potong lanchau as hip, cool and technologically sophisticated?

How do you like that?

I say PKR and PAS, I'd recruit as many people as possible and get ready to be placed everywhere because I seriously doubt those who have been so openly farked by the Drooling And lanchau Potong Gang will still want to vote for them. But they have nothing against you, they will not vote for UMNO either. Well, unless Nazri send Lingam nehind bar for 750 years, there is no way these UMNOphobes are going do any different ... See? So, if you are not there to take their free vote, they will just vote with their feet ... Get it?

Pic: Penis Protecor Unite!

(That's right - you read that right. A march on Washington this week was all about the rights of man . . .hood. In honor of Genital Integrity Awareness Week (yes, you read that right too), a group of fifty protestors made their presence known on the national mall to fight to keep newborn baby boys from having their little foreskins removed.)

UMNO, you die lah, how are you alone can possibly take on 3 big mafias (one of them is also a traitor) who are also eying the same community like you do for the past 50 years at the same time?

Nik Aziz tidak tahu siapa beri nasihat salah-Sinar Harian (4/12/09)

Nota: Ketahuilah kenyataan Presiden PAS ini adalah sebuah kenyataan yang dibuat selepas perlantikan Penolong Setiausaha PAS Pusat yang baru. Sememangnya sejak setahun dua ini, kerap dicuba menyalahkan penasihat-penasihat Tok Guru. Malang bagi mereka, penasihat-penasihat Tok Guru berjaya mengekalkan pemerintahan PAS di Kelantan selama 20 tahun. Berapa tahunkah PAS berjaya menegkalkan pemerintahan di Terengganu hasil dari nasihat-nasihat yang diberikan oleh penasihat-penasihat Presiden?

(Bermula) Nik Aziz tidak tahu siapa beri nasihat salah

Sinar Harian (4/12/09): Mursyidul Am Pas, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat mengakui bahawa beliau tidak mengetahui individu yang didakwa memberi nasihat yang salah kepadanya sebagaimana yang dinyatakan oleh Presiden, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang.

Beliau yang juga Menteri Besar Kelantan berkata, sebarang nasihat yang diterima akan dipertimbang dan difikirkan dengan sebaiknya sebelum beliau memutuskan sama ada menerima atau menolak cadangan yang diberikan.

"Saya pun tidak tahu siapa dia penasihat saya yang tidak betul... orang beri nasihat, saya pilih yang betul... saya tidak tahu... tanya dialah( Abdul Hadi) siapa yang betul, siapa yang tidak betul," katanya selepas hadir di Majlis Sambutan Hari Integriti Peringkat Negeri Kelantan 2009 di Kota Darul Naim di sini, semalam.

Beliau berkata demikian sebagai mengulas kenyataan Abdul Hadi yang mengatakan Nik Aziz menjalankan tugas dengan ikhlas, tetapi individu di sekelilingnya tidak memberi nasihat perundangan dan politik yang betul kepada beliau.

Ditanya adakah beliau menerima semua nasihat yang diberikan penasihatnya, Nik Aziz berkata: "Bila diberi nasihat pada saya, saya bincang dulu... kalau saya berasa puas hati saya terima, tak puas hati saya tolak... Bergantung kepada sayalah... saya tak terima bulat- bulat."

Dalam pada itu, mengulas mengenai tahap integriti yang ada dalam Kerajaan Negeri, Nik Aziz berkata, beliau masih belum berpuas hati dan perkara itu boleh dipertingkatkan dari masa ke semasa.

"Mana ada puas hati, kita manusia mana boleh puas hati... kita nak tidur pun tidak puas hati ada nyamuk ada sejuk... puas hati ini tidak berlaku di muka dunia," katanya.

Teoh Beng Hock's Spirit Forces MACC Chief Into Early Retirement?

Three individuals claimed that they saw a figure resembling the late Teoh Beng Hock roaming the Malay­sian Anti-Corruption Commis­sion (MACC) headquarters at Plaza Masalam, Shah Alam.

According to the China Press newspaper report, the late Teoh was sighted on the 5th floor of the building - The floor where Teoh's body was found and on the 14th floor, where the MACC Selangor Office is located.

The report says that a security guard and two MACC officers saw what appeared to be an apparition of the late Teoh Beng Hock around last October - two months after Teoh was found dead.

The security guard who declined to identify himself said, he did not see Teoh's face, but he was dressed just like he did when he came to the MACC that fateful day.

Could this be the reason why MACC Chief Ahmad Said requested that his tenure be shortened, allowing his deputy to take over in January. If this keeps up, we will also be hearing about Altantuyaa Shariibu's apparition's at Putrajaya. Somebody please get Mulder and Scully!

Fantastic Facts And Fancies

Ale! Jangan marah la. Main-main je.

Over my morning coffee I was browsing the online news portals and found a gem. It's from the online version of The Star. The section, Other News & Views. I am sure that most of you have read about the so-called 'sightings' of the ghost of Teoh Beng Hock. Stories have been circulating the Net about how people have seen Teoh's spirit haunting the MACC building in Shah Alam. Anyway, there was a report in The China Press about this 'haunting'. Part of the English translation in The Star read...

The guard later went to the reception counter and saw Teoh's spirit walking away. He later felt someone pulling his leg.

I fell off my chair when I read that. I was laughing so hard. Thank you to the editor or sub-ed who translated that. Proving that in Malaysia comedy (intentional or otherwise) is not the exclusive domain of politicians.

While female orgasm has been the subject of so many myths and folk beliefs, scientists are trying their best to know more about the mystery
Female orgasm

behind the phenomenon.

And now, after some intense field research, a team of experts have uncovered six facts about the female orgasm, as revealed by modern science, reports New Scientist magazine.

The six facts are as follows:

The G spot is real
The G spot is a small region in the vagina that, if stimulated, can produce wildly intense orgasms – or so goes the popular claim. But, since decades, strong evidence for the region's existence was harder to find than the spot itself. However, in 2008, an Italian research team solved the mystery after they found anatomical differences between women who could have G-spot orgasms and women who couldn't. And since then, researchers have since begun teaching women with G spots how to put them to use.

The brain switches off
It's folk wisdom that people can't think straight when they have sex on their minds, and a brain scanning study showed that many areas of women's brains were deactivated during orgasm, including those involved in emotion.

Many women can't have orgasms
According to a 1999 survey, around 43 per cent of women in the US have some sort of problem with their sex lives. Female sexual dysfunction (FSD) is so common that the very idea that it is a medical disorder has come under attack and thus efforts to develop drugs to treat it are underway.

Genes affect orgasm frequency
According to the first genetic study of the female orgasm, up to 45 per cent of the variation in women's ability to have them could be down to genes. Many women never have orgasms during intercourse, and some also cannot have them through masturbation. Some of this may be down to external factors like upbringing, but the study showed the genetic factor is significant.

Technology can help
Perhaps the most extreme solution for sexual dysfunction among women is the so-called "orgasmatron"-an implant inserted into the spinal cord, which stimulates the user when switched on via a remote control. Despite an initial struggle to find subjects for clinical testing, the device is now in development.

Some mystery remains
The female orgasm is a puzzle for evolutionary biologists. It is unclear why women should have orgasms at all, and it is particularly baffling that so many women should be unable to have orgasms during penetrative sex, but able to have them by masturbation. According to researcher Elisabeth Lloyd, this implies that female orgasms are an evolutionary accident. Like male nipples, they persist simply because there is no good reason to get rid of them.

This little Indian chick like to dress up in lingerie and other outfits for her man. And of course flash her titties. She is no doubt fully Americanize second gen or greater.Click on pictures to enlarge.

YB Chan Ming Kai - Sila belajar tentang hak kamu iaitu Ad Deenul Islam dan bersyahadah lah!

Posted: 04 Dec 2009 04:40 PM PST

Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

Saya merujuk kepada laporan akhbar Utusan Malaysia bahawa ADUN PKR N44 Simpang Pulai, YB Chan Ming Kai telah turut serta bertakbir raya di Aidilfitri nan lalu bersama umat Islam.

Saya alu alukan YB Chan Ming Kai supaya belajar tentang Agama Islam dan mengucap dua kalimah syahadah dan menjadi seorang Muslim didalam ertikata sebenar benarnya!

Setakat memakai baju Melayu, bersongkok dan duduk bertakbir raya bersama orang orang Islam memang tidak cukup malah boleh dikatakan bahawa YB Chan Ming Kai sedang berdrama swasta ingin mengambil hati orang orang Melayu menyokong YB!

Saya turut musykil bagaimana tuan rumah boleh membenarkan seorang yang belum Islam seperti YB Chan turut bertakbir membesarkan Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala sedangkan beliau belum terisytihar memeluk Ad Deenullah?

Apakah YB Chan sudah Muslim?

Jika ya, maka saya dengan segala rasa bersyukur ingin menyambut keislamannya!

Jika tidak, maka apakah maksud perbuatannya itu?

Kepada YB Chan Ming Kai, ketahuilah bahawa YB berhak mengucap dua kalimah syahadah iaitu " Asy hadu alla ila ha ill lall Laah ; Wa asy hadu anna Muhammadar Rasulullah!" yang membawa maksud 'Aku mengaku tiada tuhan selain Allah dan aku mengaku bahawa (Nabi) Muhammad adalah Pesuruh Allah!'

YB boleh sahaja meminta bantuan dan bimbingan dari mana mana umat Islam di Malaysia ini.

Insya Allah, akan kami bantu YB menjadi seorang Muslim secara sah dan rasmi!

Jika YB olok olok sahaja, bertakbir bersama umat Islam seperti tersiar didalam video You Tube di atas, maka sadar lah YB bahawa bermuka muka itu adalah satu perkara terkutuk dan perbuatan sebegitu adalah tanda tanda seorang hipokrit!

YB Chan perlu menerangkan kepada umum akan apa maksud sebenar perbuatan YB itu?

Seandainya pihak tuanrumah sadar bahawa YB Chan ni sekadar nak berlakon sekejap berpura pura membesarkan Allah padahal dia memang seorang kaffir tegar, maka apakah tuanrumah sanggup menanggung dosa membiarkan kaffir mempermainkan amal ibadat suci Islam?

Ada sesiapa di majlis Takbir Aidilfitri di atas boleh menerangkan erti kehadiran YB PKR Simpang Pulai ini?
