Sometimes, it’s scary when dreams come true… At some level, we are all afraid of change

Posted: 21 Mar 2010 09:06 AM PDT


MP Puad Zarkashi the deputy education minister. TRH firmly denied being in the equation whilst Puad says he was saved by divine intervention.

He told Umno-linked daily Utusan Malaysia that he performed a special prayer called istikharah and subsequently the answer was given to him in a "dream".

"In my dream, god told me that if I signed a letter in support of Anwar as the prime minister, it would mean that I have sold the country," said Puad

He added that god provided him with the strength to refuse the invitation by the PKR de facto leader to topple the ruling coalition.

Lucky a god-chosen one.



Sometimes, it's scary when dreams come true… At some level, we are all afraid of change
Deputy Education Minister Dr Puad Zarkashi has admitted being contacted over Pakatan Rakyat's (PR) Sept 16 plan but said the revelation by Bayan Baru MP Datuk Seri Zahrain Hashim confirmed the lies made by its de facto leader.
The Batu Pahat MP said today Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim lied to him about the plans to capture Putrajaya in 2008.
"I was shocked, just because I was contacted, Anwar told Zahrain I was already willing to join Pakatan," said Puad.
"Maybe they thought I was very approachable and I know Anwar personally, so the thought they could get me to join Pakatan easily," he said.
Puad said he was also very critical of the administration of Tun Abdullah Badawi which led to the speculation that he was supporting Anwar to become the prime minister.
"I was among those who asked for the transition of power to Datuk Seri Najib Razak to be sped up," he said.
On whether he will lodge a police report against Anwar, Puad said it is not necessary for him to do so.
"It is up to everyone else to lodge a police it is not for me to do it," he said.
IT was the week leading up to International Women's Day and author Advaita Kala, in her capacity as the newly-anointed brand ambassador of the restaurant, had invited a group of women for lunch to Italia. It turned out to be one of those afternoons when nobody carried any agendas and we all just lived in the moment, resulting in the kind of experience you think of later with fondness.
And in the middle of the chatter came a line of wisdom, something I was to find myself thinking of again later. Just a wistful phrase actually that floated in the air before settling into my awareness. "Sometimes it's scary when your dreams come true…" said a friend.
Strange thing to say, you may well think. How can the realisation of a dream be scary? We all hope, pray, wish, live for our dreams to come true; how can a dream becoming reality be scary? I was reminded of the phrase next morning as I watched Ekta Kapoor on television. Her right hand was weighed down by more than six rings, her left wrist a mountain of red threads and sacred wisps of material.
When asked if she was superstitious, she answered with supreme confidence, "This is not superstition; it's my belief." Then pointing towards each of the rings, she helpfully explained, "All these rings are to protect me; this one here is for work, this for my Shukr, this to keep me young, this to keep me flushed and romantic and this one keeps me prosperous…"
Success can indeed turn you into a coward, it seems… And fulfilled dreams can be scary! Having tasted "the bitch Goddess Success" as American psychologist William James called it, and knowing deep down that it is ephemeral, can be a recipe for disaster. The more you enjoy the trappings of success, the more you fear losing what you have, and this is what creates the fear. Experience tells us that we can neither hang onto happiness nor grief; fortune nor misfortune, neither success nor failure. One follows the other and there's nothing we can do to hold onto either, no matter how many rings we wear or threads we tie round our wrists. And so, we argue, why strive for something you are bound to lose? In fact, some of us have such a deep unconscious fear of doing well that we work our way up the ladder and then deny ourselves the pleasure of the last step into success. People have a tendency to fall apart at the critical stage just when the fulfillment of a dream seems within reach. Things start going wrong suddenly; they either cannot perform as well as earlier, or start having personalitybased issues or getting nervous or careless at inopportune moments, thus fulfilling their self-destructive prophecies. One may dismiss this as misfortune or bad luck, but experts tend to look at such incidents as selfdestructive behaviour emanating from a deep-rooted fear of success.
Elissa Sklaroff, a Philadelphia therapist, says that when people are at the brink of success "all our neuroses pop right up to the surface. On some level, success-fearing people are running from change – especially from having to change their secret self-image as an unsuccessful or undeserving person." Each of us knows some gifted loser; people who have everything going for them and are talented but just seem to lose it when it comes to achieving greater heights. Players who always play well except when it matters most; executives with the best strategies who seem to scatter when they reach the top.
Freud spoke of the "surprising and even bewildering" tendency of some people to fall apart "precisely when a deeply-rooted and long-cherished wish has come to fulfillment…as though they were not able to tolerate happiness." Some fear that if their dreams are met, there may be nothing to look forward to.And then if their success cannot make them happy, what would life be worth anymore?
Shah Rukh Khan says in a recent interview to Cine Blitz, "When most of your dreams are realised, what comes after that? When you have everything, the things that come with it are a persecution complex, paranoia, loneliness and sometimes complete self-absorption. ….It is my work that sustains me. It's the only place where I give vent to all my feelings. This is my only area of outlet and spirituality. It keeps me sane…"
So there is perhaps more fun in working your way towards success rather than in the goal itself! People fear that success may cost them their relationships, their peace of mind or even the right to dream further; it may make them the target of envy, hatred and vengeance.
That may or may not happen. But nobody who is afraid of achieving their dreams is likely to dream big, nobody afraid of success will set their goals high. And so sadly, all such people are likely to achieve much less in life than they are capable of. And so, you give a chance to those who are less capable to step across you and make it big…



NOBISHA ~ Book launch at KL International Book Fair 2010

I attended my fellow blogger @ NOBISHA's book launch at the KL International Book Fair (2010) at Dewan Tun Hussein Onn, PWTC this afternoon.
NobishaFan.JPG
Congratulated him on his book launch and wished him all the best in his endeavors. Norizan bin Shariff is a prolific blogger and has been a regular guest appearing on ASTRO AWANI's talk shows where he would be amongst the panel of political observers sharing their views about the current political situation in this country.

I was a tad too early for the book launch which was scheduled for 3pm so I just congratulated him in advance and wished him well.

"TUNGGU APA LAGI?" is the title of his book. Sells for just RM15.00. Those who are into politics might want to read what Nobisha has to say?

Most have seen NAJIB as an unprincipled opportunist – conniving and duplicitous as he pushed ROSMA to the forefront.
[umrahnajib.jpg]

THIS TAXIDRIVER also revels in her portrayal of the wilful and meddlesome mistress ROSMA. We watch as ROSMA steadily increases her influence and interference in affairs of the state, insinuating herself into her husband's court.

At the same time, ROSMA clearly takes great pleasure in punishing and humiliating those who had crossed her when she was a nobody.

Ironically, not long after arranging THE MURDER , both Cromwell and Anne were to fall from power.Anne failed to bear a son (though her daughter became Elizabeth I) and Cromwell erred in selecting one of her successors. Both their lives were ended by an axe.

Why does Wolfhall resonate with the events taking place in Bangkok and, indeed, elsewhere in South-East Asia? Well, first of all, we are dealing with a world where personal vendettas are taken to the extreme – where men and women can pay the ultimate price for their politicking.

The level of personal animosity in Bangkok is very deep. The gap is unbridgeable. When a conflict becomes personal and this bitter, there is often no way out without the loser's total destruction, if not death.

Similarly, the novel is about a world where vendettas are a way of life, where those in power take sadistic pleasure attacking and then destroying their enemies – a cycle of violence that has now got Thailand firmly in its grip.

For all those who hold power now, I'd advise them to read Mantel's Wolfhall. When you're on top, you often feel like you'll never fall.

However, fall you will, sooner or later. And when that time comes, your enemies – the people you abused, cheated and ruined, will come after you because that is what happens when you create a world where violence is cyclical and where one wrong is met by another.

What goes around comes around. We may not be able to publish all that we as writers know. However, we will always remember your sins and crimes. As I said earlier, I used to scoff at Shakespeare's plays as unreal. Now I know better.

Commemorating International Women's Day I would like to post this essay, written on 9 June 2005.

I wrote this while sitting in my bedroom in Kabul, Afghanistan — it goes out to all the women in Afghanistan. While most of the world was busy getting on with their lives, I saw you and learned from you.

Facing my laptop in a 18sqm room, staring at the white door with assorted winter jackets and coats hanging on a row of metal hooks, nothing came to my mind. I sat there for a few minutes staring into what my brain perceived as an empty space, just wondering what the hell am I doing in this God-forsaken place?

The image of a forlorn-looking man holding up a placard bearing the words "God has left this country" flashed before my eyes. I remember seeing this image before; somewhere in a movie I am sure.

My altruism vanished bit by bit. There is nowhere for me to go and nothing for me to do in this room of about 18sqm. Just the feeling of utter frustration seeping into my soul.

This is not what it's supposed to be. I'm not supposed to be feeling this way.

It was my 17th month in Afghanistan. A country where nothing seems to appear normal, at least not the way we understand normal. It's a country where I can't seem to accurately describe who its inhabitants of about 23 millions are. It's a country where you get in and the next thing you know, you want to get out as quickly as you can but somewhere in between there is still something holding you back.

What is it? Is it the sense of obligation as a fellow human being? Or is it because we keep telling ourselves that we can do better?

Things just seem to be getting harder each day. I find myself confined within the space of a small room; either in my office or in my temporary accommodation. It is easier for one to engage in any kind of immoral acts within the confine of one's private space than to go for an innocent stroll out in the open air.

What an irony, isn't it? The fact that I could not walk to the nearest grocery store because I want to buy a carton of milk frustrates the hell out of me. Nevertheless, the situation where I'm forced to live life as if I am an inmate in a small cell provides me with ample of time to think.

The many stories revealed to me — the human rights officer — sometimes haunt me, leave me feeling devastated, hopeless and angry.

Zuhal*, a young Afghan woman, was married to Tariq* for 8 years. Shortly after their marriage, Tariq left for Iran in search of a better life while leaving her behind with his family. Meantime, eight years passed and the war against the Taliban a dark past. For many, it was a time to rejoice and the time to rebuild their country. It was time for God to finally come back.

In conclusion, it was the start of many hopeful beginnings.

But not for Zuhal. Being caught by her father-in-law with her male neighbour in a room at night, she was sentenced to death by a local religious leader. The report I received indicates that she was not even alone with her neighbour while she was caught.

Instead of demanding for justice and begging for her life, her parents surrendered to humiliation without protest. In order to redeem their loss of honour, the only thing left to do was to condone and support her condemnation. She was hung to death while her alleged "partner in crime" survived with 100 lashes of the durra.

I often asked myself while reading this case over and over again, "Who the hell is this man to have such power over one person's life?"

Someone once told me, "You are nobody unless someone makes you somebody."

So, my thought is that this man has gained such power simply because the people have given him that power to condemn someone to death. I thought only God has that kind of power.

Unless the Afghans start to wake up and think about the values of human beings, many people will rise up like this man and continue to wantonly assert their power over innocent people like Zuhal. I say she's innocent because after all, one of the principles of the rule of law is the presumption of innocent until proven guilty.

In Zuhal's case, she was never arrested and charged for a crime in an open court. She was simply judged guilty, even by her own family, who had allegedly carried her outside their house, placed her on a table, tied a noose around her neck and left her to die by hanging. Zuhal's own mother confessed that she had killed her daughter out of shame and disgrace.

A 12 year-old girl and her alleged rapist were arrested recently and charged for the crime of adultery. The girl claimed that she was drugged and raped by the man. While in detention, her father persistently seeks for her release. Having seen the case of Zuhal, the UN officer handling the case advised the prison authority not to release her for fear that she would be killed by her own family due to shame and dishonour.

Many women face similar fate because there are simply not enough qualified lawyers in Afghanistan to defend them. At such a time, I feel completely hopeless and tormented over the fate of the women in Afghanistan.

I don't know what else to do for them.

I believe in the freedom of religion. Yes, I do. I believe that everyone has the right to practice his or her own religion. But what I truly abhor is how certain people use religion to exploit and subsequently cause the suffering of others. What I truly regret is how certain people seem to blindly believe something they perceive as the sacred teachings of a religion without searching for the truth.

In essence, I believe that all religion teaches the same values of justice, compassion and peace. I really do. But when 12 innocent civilians' lives were taken away during a riot as a result of the people's anger and retaliation towards the American's alleged desecration of the Qur'an in Guantanamo Bay, I begin to question the purpose and even more the source of such outrage.

President Karzai upon finding out the looting and burning down of private and governmental properties, including a public library, condemned the act by stating that while these people were furious at the desecration of the Qur'an, two hundred more Qur'ans perished in the fire that same day.

What is the purpose of believing in a religion when human lives are not being valued, for isn't the basis of all religion boils down to respecting each other's lives and not desecrate what God has created?

Am I missing something here because I don't seem to understand?

The Women's Reservation Bill contains around it a beehive of paradoxes and posers. The fact that it has the popular support (at least on the face of it) from so many major political parties that are otherwise so implacably opposed to each other is noteworthy. That it faces opposition from parties representing some backward and marginalized classes makes the debate even more intriguing.

As many have argued the problem identified is clear enough. After so many years of elections, one would have expected that we have a fairer representation of women but that is far from being so. Women don't get fielded because they are not seen as candidates that can win, in most cases. The reservation thus is a way of forcing change, since it doesn't seem to be forthcoming on its own. The underlying logic is that by ensuring enough representation at the top, the entire community gets a boost. 33% reservation of constituencies on a rotational basis, thus seems to the only way out, argue those backing the bill.

The problem with this argument is that there is little evidence to support its central tenet- that more women at the top changes things for the better for women at the bottom. Today, the most powerful woman in the country is a woman as are the chief minister of the largest state, the chief minister of the capital of the country, the leader of the opposition in Lok Sabha, the Speaker of the Lok Sabha & the President of the country. Three of India's most significant political parties are not only headed by women, but run with absolute powers. If in spite of such representation at the top, we do not see more women being fielded as candidates, then clearly getting women leaders does not by itself ensure a better lot for their followers.

The insistence on women's reservation is perhaps nothing more than an attempt to construct a pleasing façade of fairness without a real desire to bring about change on the ground. It is a victory for activists pushing for this move, but it might well be a victory for them alone. In the absence of a mechanism for this move to percolate down to women in their everyday lives, all we are doing is to create a new category of rulers. In effect, what we are seeing is an arrangement to distribute power amongst the elite more evenly, than to bring about social change. Here we are bypassing the electoral process and directly apportioning power to a particular constituency. The legislative fiat is an easy if airy swish at revolution, and this proposal in particular reeks of vested self-interest hiding behind political correctness.

The demand for sub-reservations is hardly unfair, and certainly not worthy of being dismissed out of hand, if one were to agree with the implicit logic of the bill in the first place. If we need reservations for women and we need reservations for backward castes, why would we not need reservations for backward caste women? Why are all men not the same but all women are? To argue that political parties are free to pick backward caste candidates is ridiculous; for by that argument there should be no reservation for women in the first place.

The nub of the matter is this. Either we believe in democracy and its wisdom or we don't. The truth is that women all over the country are free to elect who they please and they do not seem to be electing enough women. To argue that they should be compelled to do so takes us along a very slippery path. Of course, a good part of this reason is that women exist in a larger network of social relations that limit their free will. But unlike the Schedule Castes where given their lower proportion in the population, they have very little change of getting elected without reservations, in the case of women, they make up half the population and given the fragmented nature of our polity, can exercise very sizeable clout. Even if a fraction of women were to vote for other women, the political scenario would change.

In a democracy, we cannot choose what others must choose. Democracy succeeds when real change takes place; not merely the appearance of change. Accelerating apparent change by imposing an artificial improvement is to distrust democracy. If that is the rate of change acceptable to all voters, it is important for us to listen. The electoral decision is an outcome of a complex combination of calculations that the voter makes. Not doing so is an invitation to distortions of other kinds. Also, unleashing the reservations genie is an invitation to any number of interest groups to agitate for its own share.

There is one heartening side to this saga. For once, we have a bill being presented at some risk to the government, that does not contain a whiff of political expediency. No one is agitating for it in a real sense, and there is not much direct political gain at stake. The only issue involved is a principle. Too bad, it is this one.

Malaysian toilet just like mahathir's politics A Malaysian-Indian family who recently moved to Singapore told

Singapore is an obsessively orderly and tidy society. You begin to feel the difference as soon as you disembark at the Changi airport and smoothly glide through Immigration for a taxi that zips through the city under unobtrusive and ubiquitous security cams. If there is an accident five miles ahead of you, i have been told, you would be alerted. The city knows who is doing what; nonetheless, it gives you a genuine feeling of openness, safety and comfort, if you follow the rules. Law enforcement is another obsession here.

Singapore is perhaps the only country in the world that has banned chewing gums, whose discarded messy blobs are a disgusting public nuisance. Since the unintended and terrible consequences of the 1920-33 prohibition experiment, it is unthinkable that Americans would ever accept this kind of draconian law. But Singapore is different. Unsocial behaviour (chewing gums, spiting paan, etc) and unruly people that disturb social harmony and tarnish the Singapore brand are unacceptable.

Dr Mahathir the greatest prime minister of the whole galaxy. He can solve all the world's problems.
I wonder why this old KERALASNAKE already so rich, yet so unrepentant always want to continue with promoting apartheid. He is so proud of his achievements and corruption which he consider his and all the ruling elite's birthright.For 54 years he has practised NEP until the malays still remain poor, yet the richest list have all their son's and connected person's names. It is so obvious to everyone where the money was siphoned to.Yet he still keep wanting to protect the malay's rights against non-malays who number only about 30%.
He is the father of all evils in today's society.

Judges who are corrupt

This OLD FART and TOAD Ali's face have a similarity if you notice both of them got sneering mouths which show how contemptuous they are of other races and also their own race (stupid ones) who they managed to cheat year after year.

KUALA LUMPUR, March 21 — The public have been urged to assess Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim's credibility following a revelation of the opposition's aborted Sept 16 plan by Member of Parliament for Bayan Baru Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim.

Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin(picture) said Zahrain made the revelation from his experience in the opposition and not under the direction of by Barisan Nasional (BN).

"Zahrain was disappointed with Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) and the PKR adviser and opposition leader. Let's wait for the debate on the royal address," he told reporters after playing for national Umno Youth in a football friendly with Subang Umno Youth to mark the close of the Subang League and the Subang Juara Rakyat here today.

On the upcoming MCA elections on March 28, he hopes the MCA would bury the hatchet after the elections, and members will accept the new line-up and close ranks. — Bernama


Political assassinations, judicial murders, MALAYSIAN STYLE Politically motivated charges

Filed under: Uncategorized — fawas @ 1:05 pm Edit This


If it could, the city-state would like to get rid of foreign workers from South and South East Asia, whose nasty social habits, drunkenness, littering, spitting, loud music and public urination are intolerable to Singaporeans. Many Singaporeans shun the lowly work that foreign workers do and look down upon them from their highrise air-conditioned homes. So auxiliary police officers (APO) patrol areas where foreign workers live and congregate – areas such as Little India, the Golden Mile Complex and other places – in spite of the fact that there is no evidence that foreign workers commit more crimes than local Singaporeans. The arrest rate, according to police figures for 2007, for foreign work-permit holders, was 227 per 100,000 as against 435 for Singaporeans; nonetheless, the country's largest newspaper recommended that "labour contractors and employers make it a contractual duty to brief guest workers thoroughly on the dos and don'ts of life in a tidy society".

Foreign workers in construction, manufacturing and service industries are vital to the Singapore economy, and there are 856,000 of them out of a total foreign population of 1.25 million. But the new budget being discussed now in parliament would impose a progressive levy on companies hiring foreign workers, hoping that hiring restrictions would motivate companies to automate and innovate, thus, increasing productivity. Higher productivity would require fewer unskilled foreign workers and more highly skilled Singaporean workers.

It is doubtful Singapore will ever be able to do without foreign workers, whether high-skilled professionals or low-level construction and domestic workers. For many Singaporeans, 1.25 million foreigners are too many but the trouble is that Singaporeans are not making enough babies. The fertility rate is one of the lowest in the world. Educated Singaporean women are career-oriented; and, besides, they are professionally extremely competitive with male workers. What makes child-rearing so difficult in Singapore is the paucity of infant care for which the going rate is, in Singapore dollars, $1,000 to $1,500 per month for two to 18 months toddlers. The government gives $600 to full-time working mothers. Some expectant mothers reserve a seat in an infant care facility as early as two months into the pregnancy.

The most impressive achievement of Singapore is the mutual acceptance – not merely tolerance – of each other among its various ethnic and religious groups. Commenting on inter-religious harmony, senior minister Goh Chok said, "Singaporeans are also blessed because many religious organisations reach out to (the) larger community, not just cater to their own flock." The self-congratulation was prompted by the decision of the Ramakrishna Mission to offer 60 parking spaces to Bartley Christian Church worshipper next door for their Sunday services for which the mission built a special gate on its compound. Inter-religious and inter-ethnic recriminations are almost absent. Recently when a pastor criticised Buddhism and Taoism, whose practices are followed by most ethnic Chinese constituting Singapore's overwhelming majority, his remarks were regarded as socially unacceptable.

Singapore politicians, city planners, architects, educators and think-tankers aspire to make the city a hi-tech global hub of trade and commerce that competes with Tokyo, Hong Kong and Shanghai, a goal that is not difficult to achieve. But to become a great centre for the arts and culture, like New York or London, Singapore needs unbridled freedom of speech and expression, and some tolerance for the creative messiness that accompanies it. It is freedom of speech in all its manifestations that enables a nation to generate an abiding grand narrative or a myth that binds its people. Today Singapore is a very neat, prosperous and liveable city. It is free from civic violence but its civic life is dull. The city-state has no great heroes. It has no grand story to tell the world.

If it could, the city-state would like to get rid of foreign workers from South and South East Asia, whose nasty social habits, drunkenness, littering, spitting, loud music and public urination are intolerable to Singaporeans. Many Singaporeans shun the lowly work that foreign workers do and look down upon them from their highrise air-conditioned homes. So auxiliary police officers (APO) patrol areas where foreign workers live and congregate – areas such as Little India, the Golden Mile Complex and other places – in spite of the fact that there is no evidence that foreign workers commit more crimes than local Singaporeans. The arrest rate, according to police figures for 2007, for foreign work-permit holders, was 227 per 100,000 as against 435 for Singaporeans; nonetheless, the country's largest newspaper recommended that "labour contractors and employers make it a contractual duty to brief guest workers thoroughly on the dos and don'ts of life in a tidy society".

Foreign workers in construction, manufacturing and service industries are vital to the Singapore economy, and there are 856,000 of them out of a total foreign population of 1.25 million. But the new budget being discussed now in parliament would impose a progressive levy on companies hiring foreign workers, hoping that hiring restrictions would motivate companies to automate and innovate, thus, increasing productivity. Higher productivity would require fewer unskilled foreign workers and more highly skilled Singaporean workers.

It is doubtful Singapore will ever be able to do without foreign workers, whether high-skilled professionals or low-level construction and domestic workers. For many Singaporeans, 1.25 million foreigners are too many but the trouble is that Singaporeans are not making enough babies. The fertility rate is one of the lowest in the world. Educated Singaporean women are career-oriented; and, besides, they are professionally extremely competitive with male workers. What makes child-rearing so difficult in Singapore is the paucity of infant care for which the going rate is, in Singapore dollars, $1,000 to $1,500 per month for two to 18 months toddlers. The government gives $600 to full-time working mothers. Some expectant mothers reserve a seat in an infant care facility as early as two months into the pregnancy.

The most impressive achievement of Singapore is the mutual acceptance – not merely tolerance – of each other among its various ethnic and religious groups. Commenting on inter-religious harmony, senior minister Goh Chok said, "Singaporeans are also blessed because many religious organisations reach out to (the) larger community, not just cater to their own flock." The self-congratulation was prompted by the decision of the Ramakrishna Mission to offer 60 parking spaces to Bartley Christian Church worshipper next door for their Sunday services for which the mission built a special gate on its compound. Inter-religious and inter-ethnic recriminations are almost absent. Recently when a pastor criticised Buddhism and Taoism, whose practices are followed by most ethnic Chinese constituting Singapore's overwhelming majority, his remarks were regarded as socially unacceptable.

Singapore politicians, city planners, architects, educators and think-tankers aspire to make the city a hi-tech global hub of trade and commerce that competes with Tokyo, Hong Kong and Shanghai, a goal that is not difficult to achieve. But to become a great centre for the arts and culture, like New York or London, Singapore needs unbridled freedom of speech and expression, and some tolerance for the creative messiness that accompanies it. It is freedom of speech in all its manifestations that enables a nation to generate an abiding grand narrative or a myth that binds its people. Today Singapore is a very neat, prosperous and liveable city. It is free from civic violence but its civic life is dull. The city-state has no great heroes. It has no grand story to tell the world.

military takeover, and manipulated coup de etats by unelected leaders are seminal events in the history of any nation. The asassination of Benazir Bhutto is all the more traumatic for Pakistanis and others because "nothing seems like what it is". Any murder is investigated on the concept of motive, opportunity and benifits from the murder. The same criteria has to be applied to the death of Benazir Bhutto. The beneficiaries of the death of Benazir Bhutto are not those who were blamed initially for her death.

  • After being turned down for parole 16 times, Malcolm X's only confessed assassin is about to gain his freedom.
  • Thomas Hagan has been held since moments after shots rang out in the Audubon Ballroom in 1965. He has been on work release for more than two decades, but he still spends two days a week locked up at the Lincoln Correctional Facility on West 110th Street in Manhattan.
  • On March 3, however, on his 17th try, Mr. Hagan was granted parole, the State Division of Parole said. His final release date is tentatively scheduled for April 28. The news was reported Thursday on The Village Voice's Runnin' Scared blog.
  • Mr. Hagan, who turned 69 in jail on Tuesday, was a militant member of the Nation of Islam on Feb. 21, 1965, when Malcolm X was shot while giving a speech at the Audubon, in Washington Heights. Mr. Hagan, then known as Talmadge X. Hayer, was captured by the crowd and shot at and beaten before being rescued by the police.
  • Two other men, Muhammad Abdul Aziz (then known as Norman 3X Butler) and Kahlil Islam (then Thomas 15X Johnson), were also charged with the murder. They maintained their innocence.

  • All three men were sentenced to 20 years to life.
  • Mr. Hagan said in a 1977 affidavit that he and several accomplices (not Mr. Aziz or Mr. Islam) decided to kill Malcolm X because he was a "hypocrite" who had "gone against the leader of the Nation of Islam," Elijah Muhammad. Mr. Hagan said that after one man shot Malcolm X in the chest with a shotgun, he and another man fired several more rounds at him.
  • Mr. Aziz was paroled in 1985, and in 1998 was named by Louis Farrakhan to be chief of security for the Harlem mosque that Malcolm X once headed. Mr. Islam was paroled in 1987.
  • Mr. Hagan, who earned a master's degree while in prison, according to a 2008 profile in The New York Post, was placed on work release in 1988. In 2008, he was spending his free days with his wife and children in Brooklyn, and working in a restaurant.

    Epilog sebuah kehidupan ~ Mahukah kita muhasabah diri?

    Posted: 21 Mar 2010 06:36 AM PDT

    Assalamualaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh.

    Semalam, kami mendapat berita tentang kematian ibu seorang kawan kami di Kampong Pandan. Majlis pengkebumian dijadualkan untuk berlangsung pagi ini.

    Makanya selepas sarapan ringan dirumah, kami menuju ke rumah arwah yang sudah beberapa kali sebelum ini kami jejaki semasa berziarah kekediaman keluarga sahabat kami. Beliau adalah juga teman sefakulti isteri saya.

    Arwah ibu sahabat kami ini semasa hayatnya terkenal dengan keramahan mulut selaku anak negeri Melaka.

    Kini arwah sudah dijemput Malaikatul Maut kembali menghadap Rabbul Alamin.

    Arwah menghembuskan nafasnya yang terakhir di Hospital Ampang. Sebab sebab kematian direkodkan sebagai menghadapi komplikasi penyakit kencing manis dan jantung terhenti serta asbab asbab sakit tua yang lain.

    Al Fatihah!
    Jenazah.jpg

    156. Allatheena itha asabat-hum museebatun qaloo inna lillahi wa-inna ilayhi rajiAAoona

    [156](Iaitu) orang-orang yang apabila mereka ditimpa oleh sesuatu kesusahan, mereka berkata: "Sesungguhnya kami adalah kepunyaan Allah dan kepada Allah jualah kami kembali."

    156. Who say, when afflicted with calamity: "To Allah we belong, and to Him is our return":—

    Surah Al Baqarah Ayat 156. Al Qur'an Al Karim.

    Ikhwanul Muslimin na wal Muslimat yang saya kasihi,

    Bilamana kita menerima kabar berita kematian seseorang ahli keluarga, sanak saudara, sahabat handai mahu pun mereka yang diluar dari golongan kenalan kita, seharusnya kita redha dengan pemergian mereka itu dengan menyebut atau melafazkan ayat tertera di atas dengan keratan lafaz 'Inna lillahi wa inna ilaihi raji`un' yang membawa maksud bahawasanya kita mengaku diri kita ini dicipta oleh Allahu Rabbul Alamin dan kepada Nya jua (ruh) kita kan kembali.

    Ianya satu penyaksian terhadap kedudukan kita sebagai makhluk dan bersifat sementara secara lahiriyah keujudan jasad kita dan bahawa ruh kita itu akan dibawa ke ruang Alam Barzakh yang disediakan Allahu Ta'ala, Sang Maha Pencipta.

    Berapa keratkah diantara kita yang mahu menaksir diri, berhenti sejenak memikirkan akan realiti kehidupan kita pula apabila menerima berita kematian seseorang itu?

    Sesungguhnya cukuplah maut itu sebagai peringatan untuk kita bermuhasabah diri dan mengambil kira akan ketentuan ajal kita pula bila bila masa sahaja nanti?

    Setiap dari kita akan mati bila sampai saat ajal kita nanti. Biar diri tuan puan kerabat diraja, orang orang bergelar mahupun rakyat biasa. Tak kira anak bilionair ataupun pengemis sekalipun. Maka bersiap siagalah kita semua menghadapi kemungkinan kita akan menghembuskan nafas terakhir kita bila bila masa sahaja atau tanpa tersangka?

    Adakah kita sedar bahawasanya maut itu tidak kan terawal barang sesaat atau terlewat barang sedetik?

    Cuba kita lihat suasana masyarakat didalam negara kita yang saban hari semakin berserabut jadinya dengan terjebak didalam perebutan kuasa politik mahupun kedudukan yang pada hakikatnya cuma bersifat sebegitu sementara sahaja?

    Didalam medan internet ini kita boleh melihat pelbagai macam ragam manusia dengan caci maki mereka, hasad dengki dan dendam kesumat, mengadu domba memaki cerca ikut suka tanpa berfikir bahawa mereka itu boleh sahaja mati didalam keadaan lidah masih berdosa menggumam saudara seagama mereka?

    Apakah tidak cukup peringatan yang Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala perturunkan didalam Kitab Suci Al Quranul Karim dan contoh tauladan kehancuran ummah sebelum kehadiran kita?

    Cuba kita berhenti sejenak dan merenung akan kebenaran ini?

    Apakah sempat kita bertaubat sebelum tibanya kenderaan untuk membawa jenazah kita pula?


    Why Should Christians Pray For Ong Tee Keat & MCA?

    Posted: 21 Mar 2010 03:05 AM PDT

    "Who cares if they gave space to the Tabernacle Church, MCA is indirectly responsible for the fires too for allowing UMNO to ride rough shot over the minorities. Who gives a flying F**k!!!!!! about what happens in MCA nowadays. All of us pray that they crash and burn!!"

    - Major (Rtd) D. Swami of 7th Rangers (Mechanized)


    By David Lim

    The following postings by MarGeeMar
    http://margeemar.blogspot.com/2010/03/umno-mca-at-war-with-each-other.html#links and http://margeemar.blogspot.com/2010/03/barisan-nasionals-cyber-troopers-from.html#links really stirred up the Thugs in MCA who are trying desperately to cover up the cracks that are opening up every where in the Barisan Nasional Coalition. The low class Blogger who dare not reveal his identity but goes under the name Justice4OTK has attacked this Blog with profanities. Justice4OTK must obviously be worried that MarGeeMar has brought into the open the simmering animosity inherent between the BN component parties. Below is what Justice4OTK had to say about MarGeeMar and those who participated in the poll " Are Christians in Malaysia really behind MCA and BN/Umno as claimed by Ong Tee Keat?"

    "Can you believe what this Oxymoronic Blogger posted in his perverted Blog called MarGeeMar which sounds like MacheeBai . "

    Are Christians in Malaysia really behind MCA and BN/Umno as claimed by Ong Tee Keat?

    YES 6 (2%)
    NO 238 (97%)

    The real moron here is Justice4OTK just like his pal Goh Wei Liang who tries poorly to paint MarGeeMar as a racist Indian belittling the Chinese. Very typical of a BN moron who would use the race card whenever the opportunity arises. If as claimed by Justice4OTK that MarGeeMar is an Indian, then what am I? What about Admin, Antimamak, Tan Teik Lye, Jeff Goh etc. In fact I have seen articles appearing in this Blog in Chinese, Malay, Persian, Hebrew and Arabic. MarGeeMar produces articles covering all faiths. If as claimed by Justice4OTK that MarGeeMar is of a certain race, then MarGeeMar, the individual must be a Genius!

    What really makes me sick as a Christian is that Justice4OTK and Goh Wei Liang have been spinning lies about how Christians are supportive of Ong Tee Keat and MCA. We all know that MCA and Ong Tee Keat pulled a cheap publicity stunt by offering the MCA Hall for the Metro Tabernacle Church to have their Sunday Worship after the Church was fire bombed. Justice4OTK, Goh Wei Liang and the MCA have used the sermon by the Metro Tabernacle Pastor to achieve MCA's and Ong Tee Keat's twisted agenda.

    My question to Justice4OTK and MCA is this, What has MCA done for Christians in this country? If MCA had done something for Christians in this country, Umno would have booted out MCA from BN long ago. While MCA has been claiming to champion the rights of Christians in Malaysia, PAS has been quietly going around visiting Churches in the country and having dialogues with Christians. In fact in these dialogues, PAS has made it clear that Christians can call God 'ALLAH'.

    Justice4OTK even has got the cheek to ask us Christians to pray that Ong Tee Keat wins the MCA Presidency. This following pray request comes from Justice4OTK Blog. Just see how he twisted the words of the Metro Tabernacle Pastor:

    "Wasn't it the MCA that opened its doors to the Metro Tabernacle church after it was torched? And was it not the president, Ong Tee Keat who graciously opened the doors to the stricken church. By that very act alone, the sermon went on, "all Christians, and right and fair minded individuals have a moral and spiritual obligation to hold this man fast in prayers for the upcoming party elections, which many say is a tough uphill task for the reigning president.""

    I would say the best answer to Justice4OTK's prayer request for Ong Tee Keat was made by Major (Rtd) D. Swami of 7th Rangers (Mechanized):

    Who are the morons who set fire to the Churches and instigated the incident? Ans: UMNO supporters, cow head is a great example. Who supports and gives power to UMNO? Ans: MCA and the other running dogs in the BN. MCA or OTK are irrelevant to the bigger picture. All the scumbags in MCA and the other component parties in the BN can take a flying leap off the cliff!!! Who cares if they gave space to the Tabernacle Church, MCA is indirectly responsible for the fires too for allowing UMNO to ride rough shot over the minorities. Who gives a flying F**k!!!!!! about what happens in MCA nowadays. All of us pray that they crash and burn!!

    I think Justice4OTK should rename his Blog to Justice 4 OTaK kosong.



    Waiting for tomorrow - MCA nomination date

    Posted: 21 Mar 2010 02:59 AM PDT

    Just wait for tomorrow, Monday 22nd of march; we shall all know who is going to be the main contenders for the Presidency of MCA. Who would be the Deputy President's candidates and the rest of the positions in the party?

    Would the contesting individuals who are going at the centre stage in their pursuit for positions on the 28th March is the 'actual unity plan' that Najib has announced many moons ago?

    Was the resignation of Chua Soi Lek and 7 other CC members in addition to the 14 who had resigned months before as part of the plans?

    Was the re-entry of Ong Ka Ting was an adjustment to the unity plan that was announced in full throttles by the media.

    We shall wait for tomorrow and we shall know whether that unity plan announced is workable for calmness in perpetuity in the party.

    OR is it going to be an absolutely nothing to do with what Najib has planned and set for the quarrelling groups in the party?

    But by natural and common political sense it looks that the unity plan which Najib announced was disregarded entirely by the warring divides in MCA and in actual fact Najib has not succeeded in his intervention to keep the party in one piece.

    Now, we can only get to the answer tomorrow. The main figure to be the focus of political pundits and enthusiasts are Ong Tee Kiat, Ong Ka Ting, Dr Chua Soi Lek, Liow Thiong Lai, Wee Ka Siong, Chew Mei Fun, Ng Yen Yen and a few more who would be the main actors in MCA on the 28th of the month.

    By tomorrow one should be able to observe the actual 'going-to-be' scene in MCA and its predictable subsequent and the consequence of events that would tag along with it.

    And we shall see whether there is anything to do with one side of the many divides that DS Najib was the person behind Ong Ka Ting as claimed by some quarters in the party.

    Let us just wait.


    Thanks…………………………………………..Aspan Alias


    An Open Letter to Health Minister II: Rumah Sakit Yang Sakit

    Posted: 21 Mar 2010 02:12 AM PDT



    Dear Yang Berkhidmat Liow Tiong Lai,

    Mr. Wong, an elderly man presented at Hospital Likas because of severe breathlessness and was found to have severe pneumonia on chest x-ray.

    He was then admitted to the High Dependency Unit of Queen Elizabeth Hospital (QEH) 30 minutes away for treatment.

    He improved after six days and was then transferred to the normal ward for further recuperation.

    A bed was urgently needed one day later and the frail Mr. Wong was then shipped off to Hospital Bukit Padang for 'rehabilitation'.

    Alas, he did not improve but instead deteriorated.

    As Hospital Bukit Padang was devoid of the necessary equipment and setup for managing emergencies and ill patients, Mr. Wong was then resent back to QEH for further management.

    More tests were required and old Wong was then sent to Sabah Medical Center for a CT scan.

    I'm not sure what happened to Mr. Wong thereafter.

    Dear Minister,

    I hope this short story did not catch you in an awkward moment as the infamous video did to your amorous predecessor.

    I hate to interrupt you in the midst of your personal battle for self preservation in the increasingly irrelevant political party called MCA but the healthcare crisis in Sabah has just taken a turn for the worse.

    The locals in Sabah refer to hospitals as 'rumah sakit' - translated literally to mean a 'sick house'.

    Increasingly, the Queen Elizabeth Hospital, the only tertiary referral center in Sabah is living up her grand title of being a sick house.

    Partially shut down since September 2008, the ailing sick house of Sabah has turned critical recently, with worsening cracks and falling tiles and a real threat of frank collapse.

    The older blocks nearby were declared unsafe and subsequently evacuated and shut down.

    Ill and frail patients were shipped off in a frenzy like unwanted cargo to nearby centers like Hospital Bukit Padang the mental institution, Hospital Likas, and the makeshift hospital of Lingzhi Museum in Kepayan and of course, UMNO's favourite Sabah Medical Center (SMC).

    Mr. Minister of Health,

    The formation of the Queen- SMC-Likas-Lingzhi-BukitPadang medical maze has brought total chaos to healthcare services in Sabah.

    The docile and unassuming Sabahan patients are constantly playing a wicked game of musical chairs, being transported around from one hospital to another according to their changing healthcare needs.

    There is not one single center that can address a patient as a whole.

    A lady in labor will be told that she can't do so in QEH, while a fitting patient are whisked away from Likas to QEH.

    A child with a broken limb may go to SMC but the surgery can only be done in Likas.

    Elderly Mr. Wong is merely one of many such victims.

    Continuity of care is virtually impossible when patients are moved about every few days.

    Valuable investigations and data are lost in the process of multiple transfers resulting in costly, repeated tests.

    Patients have even died due to the lack of emergency equipment and the deficient setup at the peripheral wards.

    You will not hear all these because your little pharaohs in the state health department have done a great job concealing negligence, mismanagement and sheer stupidity.

    Medical personnel are suffering in silence too.

    Doctors from house officers to specialists are rushing around the five medical centers daily, wasting precious time, fuel and energy in the process of doing so.

    Medical officers have been doing eight to fifteen on-calls every month as a result of the increased locations housing the sick.

    That is fifteen days away from home and family every month, mind you.

    Just in case you forgot we too have young, growing kids to care for.

    Absent parents do not make for good family dynamics, won't you agree?

    We are risking our lives each working day wondering if the abandoned tower block will one day collapse upon us and send us to our Maker.

    Our comrades serving in Sabah Medical Center are not having it any better.

    In spite of the Barisan Nasional's grandiose publicity buzz over the RM 245 million purchase of Sabah Medical Center, the medical personnel and patients have remained mere squatters in the premises.

    The medical staffs are receiving summonses so very too often as a result of limited parking space.

    Those of us in surgical disciplines are working till 9 pm on Mondays to Fridays so as to optimize the operating time of our three miserable rented surgical theatres.

    In the SMC wards, 4-5 patients are cramped into rooms meant for two as the hospital was built to house a capacity of 150 beds only.


    Mr. Minister,

    My colleagues and I cordially invite you to come and see the ground situation for yourself without a grand entourage of administrative boot-lickers.

    Patients who require hospital admission have to be turned away due to the insufficiency of places.

    The inpatients meanwhile are packed like sardines in the current wards, with hardly a metre of space between beds.

    The situation is comparable to a Vietnamese refugee camp.

    Hospital-acquired infections are the norm rather the exception.

    When a patient with tuberculosis coughs his lungs out, everyone in the ward will be inhaling the highly infectious Mycobacterium.

    After 50 years of independence, our ill patients who require close observation are still sharing monitors and other equipment between themselves.

    Is this the standard of care that Barisan Nasional is according to Najib's self-proclaimed fixed deposit?

    Whatever happened to all the oil money that Sabah has generated for Tanah Melayu over the last 50 years?

    So you see, Mr Health Minister, we don't need more jobless house officers, more empty promises and more tasty slogans like 1Malaysia.

    We need 1Hospital and 1HealthMinister who is attuned to the sufferings of the rakyat under his care.

    Do and be all that even though Sabah will most likely hand Barisan Nasional another landslide victory come next general election.

    With warmest regards,

    Product of the System.


    SPDP”Too Much Spit…!!”

    Posted: 21 Mar 2010 01:46 AM PDT

    The amount of Spit that has left the mouths of those 5 Separatists plus 3 and their machais has overflowed their own buckets. Too much words has also been exchanged but it seems a solution is /has been found. On the surface it does look calm as the mass media and local newspapers feels that whatever grievances and plans the Separatists 5 has are now not "NEWS WORTHY".

    They have losts the plot it seems and their barking is only within their own walls of discontentment and word has it that the Chief Minister will be attending the BN solidarity night which will be organised and handled by SPDP.

    We have heard,"Enemies become friends and friends become enemies.An enemy of your enemy becomes your friend,even if the former is also your enemy,but as long as the latter is the bigger enemy.An enemy of your friend also becomes your enemy,even if the former is also your friend,but as long as the latter can serve your political interests.

    That is the political game and  eventhough there is so much hatred and disgusts shown by many towards Tiong and also putting him at loggerheads with CM the truth is/will not be known by us. Only Tiong and Taib knows bests.

    They are both keeping each other at arms length and both can called upon each others strenght to neutralise the political enemies which are always lurking. They has been too much bad mouthing and too many back stabbings and trying to PAINT A DARK HORRIBLE PICTURE of Tiong or for that matter CM Taib.

    Both of them can accept the Saliva and Spit that has been unleashed and monitor them but there must be a SOLUTION to stop it from a point of no return. The 5 YBs  are looking at ways to come back but minus the losing of PRIDE infront of their supporters. Will they have to swallow their own bucket of Saliva..??."

    It is already solving itself says a BN politcal strategists confidently but whatever theories/rumours/speculations of painting a bad picture of Mawan/Tiong/Taib will not work.Its too big a risk for BN.The BN coalition partners will need a consolidated front as they do battle in the next STATE ELECTIONS with a common enemy.  

    The message  is "STOP THE SPIT OR PAY THE PRICE FOR IT……….!!



    Pemuda PKR Selangor Buat Laporan Polis Terhadap NAJIB DAN ROSMA

    Posted: 21 Mar 2010 01:40 AM PDT

    IT TAKES A THIEF TO SAVE OTHER VULTURES BARIASAN'S ONE MALAYSIA
    WHAT DID NAJIB MEAN BY 'TENTATIVE CHARGE BUT ALL IS NOT LOST'? PDF Print E-mail
    On 11th October, Malaysia Today carried a post entitled'Abuse of power by the Deputy Prime Minister'that laid out a series of sms'es alleged to have passed between Najib and senior lawyer Shafee Abdullah in relation to Razak Baginda's arrest and remand in the days before Baginda was charged.

    Najib waspublicly asked to commentabout these sms'es and he never denied the authenticity of the same.

    Now, there's one other exchange of sms'es, this time allegedly between Razak Baginda and Najib. I do not recall Najib himself having ever addressed or denied or admitted the correctness or otherwise of these sms'es directly, as he did with the series of sms'es referred to in the MT posting.

    I am referring to the 2 sms'es mentioned at paragraphs 51 and 52 of thefirst statutory declarationof private investigator Balasubramaniam. Let me reproduce below both paragraphs 51 and 52 of that first statutory declaration.

    51. On the day Abdul Razak Baginda was arrested, I was with him at his lawyers office at 6.30am. Abdul Razak Baginda informed us that he had sent Najib Razak an SMS the evening before as he refused to believe he was to be arrested, but had not received a response.

    52. Shortly thereafter, at about 7.30am, Abdul Razak Baginda received an SMS from Najib Razak and showed, this message to both myself and his lawyer. This message read as follows: " I am seeing IGP at 11am today … matter will be solved … be cool".

    Like all of you, I am aware of Bala's second statutory declaration contradicting the first, but we also have to acknowledge that the circumstances surrounding the making and public announcement of the second statutory declaration, and the subsequent disappearance of the maker of both, might make it prudent for us to defer adjudging which of the two statutory declarations narrates the truth until such time that Bala is available to fully disclose andexplain the circumstances surrounding the making of both statutory delcarations.AS THE TAXI DRIVER SAW…ALTANTUYA'S LAST HOURS.

    Her last journey starts at night when she gives a slip to bala's men watching her movements, she took her last taxi ride from hotel Malaya to bagindas house. What could have been the topic of her discussion with the taxi driver? Was he the one who took down the car registration no, which was used in a grab at bagindas house?.
    What she told about own P.I WHO abandon her at the last moment, she was helpless? As the taxi stop she was grabbed and bundled into that car and driven off. If only they had waited, for the taxi go then they had grabbed her, they could have pull off the perfect encounter.
    With her name erased from the immigration entries, she will be in the missing persons list. But god was on her side that day, because she had to be scarified, in order to bring to open the evil forces that are planning to rule this country. But to PAS PRESIDENT it just a murder why we have to make it an issue out of it?

    The taxi driver went back to the stand at hotel Malaya to be confronted by the victim's cousin sister to whom he gave the vital informations. The Rest is history…………………………

    in the Corridors of UMNO Power

    Said Datuk Seri Najib Razak.a technicalmatter did not involve the judiciary like my SMS Shafee Abdullah,Judge Zaki dismiss Najib as a witness
    By G. Manimaran

    KUALA LUMPUR, March 21 — Umno will stick to its playbook of lodging police reports to tie up its political foes, this time against Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, for allegedly using the name of the King in his Sept 16 power grab two years ago.

    The Selangor and FT Umno Youth has said it will make the first of a flurry of reports against Anwar for sedition this morning after party leaders left it to the police to investigate the Opposition Leader's alleged actions revealed by Bayan Baru MP Datuk Seri Zahrain Hashim in Parliament last week.

    "The police report is likely to made after the Prime Minister's statement," an Umno leader told The Malaysian Insider last night, referring to the Umno Youth report to be lodged today.

    The leader, who asked for anonymity, was unsure how many other reports would be lodged but signalled it would follow the pattern of reports made against DAP national chairman Karpal Singh when he declared the royalty could be brought to court.

    According to evidence introduced at the trial and other sources, Abdul Razak contacted Najib's chief of staff, Musa Safri, to ask Najib's bodyguards, Azilah and Sirul, to "do something" about Altantuya. Musa was not required to appear as a witness. Deputy Commander Mastor Mohd Ariff, an associate of the two bodyguards, said members of the unit were required to follow all orders of their superiors without question, describing the unit's members as "like robots" who would only take orders from their superiors. Abdul Razak, a civilian and friend of Najib's, was not a superior officer. According to an affidavit filed by Abdul Razak, Azilah contacted Abdul Razak after Altantuya's disappearance to say that "tonight encik (sir), you can sleep well."
    Testimony by the murdered woman's cousin indicated that immigration records of Altantuya and the two Mongolian companions who had come toMalaysia with her to confront Abdul Razak disappeared from the government's immigration files. She also responded to a question that she had seen a picture of Altantuya having dinner with Najib before she was hurriedly hushed up by both prosecution and defense lawyers.

    Nonetheless, Judge Mohd Zaki dismissed a bid in July to call Najib as a witness in the trial. Zaki also refused to call Balasubramaniam despite his written declaration, which implicated Najib in the events leading up to the murder. In addition to other lurid details, Balasubramaniam described text messages between Najib and Abdul Razak in which the latter was asking for help to avoid arrest.

    Later, a series of text messages was made public indicating that Najib had been involved in finding a lawyer, Shafee Abdullah, to represent Abdul Razak. One message from Shafee to Najib said: "We provided (the police) everything, including old PDAs and notebooks and a couple of bills. Nothing incriminating." Malaysia Today said the exchange raises questions if anything "incriminating" was kept from the police.

    Besides allegations that Altantuya was the lover of both men, the case has raised additional concerns of corruption at the top of the United Malays National Organisation, the leading political party in the national ruling coalition. The Mongolian woman appears to have been the translator on a controversial transaction in which Malaysia, with Najib as defense minister, paid €1 billion for French submarines, netting a company tied to Abdul Razak US$111 million in "commissions."

    There is already a call for Anwar to be investigated under the Sedition Act for allegedly affecting public order by linking the King to his ambitious bid to capture Putrajaya after Pakatan Rakyat's (PR) historic gains of four more states and 82 federal seats in Election 2008.

    The Malaysian Insider understands that the first report will be made following statements by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and his deputy, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, both Umno president and deputy president respectively, that Anwar can be hauled by the authorities over Zahrain's claims.

    The former PKR member told Parliament last week that Anwar indicated the King and armed forces chief would support his bid to be prime minister if he could show backing among enough Barisan Nasional (BN) MPs. Zahrain also named eight BN lawmakers who had agreed to jump to PR.

    Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein, the Home Minister and Umno vice-president, said the claims was enough for Anwar to be investigated under the Sedition Act.

    Politicians indicates that corruption has seeped into administrative machinery, politics, judiciary and police. God forbid if a citizen of Malaysia has to stand up for himself against these forces, he is a worthless street-dog unless he has power, money or influence. The police is the only face which millions of MALAYSIANS see daily, even when they don't have to deal with corrupt government or judiciary. Are your streets safe from the licensedROSMAH'S goons ?

    THE TAXIDRIVER PICKED the jilted GHOST Atlantuya RELATES TO HIM WHAT REALY HAPPEN ROSMAH SNATCH NAJIB FROM HIS FIRST WIFE I WANT TO SNATCH HIM FROM HER BUT SHE blew me up with c4

    It is learnt that a few non-govermental organisations have also indicated they will lodge reports against Anwar, similar to those over issues related to religion and position of the Malay Rulers.

    A total of 103 police reports were made against Karpal, a prominent lawyer, for allegedly making a seditious statement against the Perak sultan when the state was in a political crisis last year.

    Police recently received 45 complaints against Najib's former special aide Datuk Nasir Safar for allegedly making racial slurs that insulted the non-Malays.

    Police can launch investigations if a report is made, even by its own personnel.

    Najib yesterday said the authorities can determine if laws were broken in the claims made against the opposition leader.

    "It is up to the authorities, They can see if anything should be done, From the aspect of investigations, maybe some laws have been broken. I leave it to the authorities," the prime minister said when commenting on Zahrain'sclaims.

    No one has yet to corroborate Zahrain's claims but former Armed Forces chief Tan Sri Abdul Aziz Zainal denied Anwar's claims that the force would back his 2008 bid to form a government.

    Hishammuddin said the Home Ministry would leave it to the Attorney-General Tan Sri Abdul Gani Patail to look into Zahrain's claims, adding Anwar can also be referred to the parliament's privileges committee for the Permatang Pauh MP's claims that APCO Worldwide consultancy engaged to improve Malaysia's image is behind the 1 Israel slogan.

    Anwar had told parliament the agency wad led by a former Israeli ambassador to the United States and in 1999 was an adviser to the Zionist regime. Links to Israel is an abhorrent charge in Malaysia which has no diplomatic relations with the Middle East country.

    Backed by more than 1,000 supporters at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur, the 61 year-old seasoned politician and former health minister will face incumbent Ong Tee Keat and former president Ong Ka Ting.

    Wearing a red short-sleeve batik shirt, he arrived to a colourful reception of loud cheers and whistles at the hotel at about 3.10pm.

    Also present in the announcement was Housing and Local Government Minister and Chua's running mate Kong Cho Ha, as well as former party vice-president Tan Chai Ho.

    Nominations for the top party post will be done tomorrow.

    About 40 division representatives and 30 division chiefs from Kelantan, Kedah, Johor, Melaka, Selangor and the Federal Territory were also present to support Dr Chua's candidacy.

    Party supporters had gathered at the hotel entrance and packed the ballroom as early as noon today, carrying banners supporting Chua in his bid to be party president.

    Supporters wearing yellow, white and blue shirts whistled each time Chua's supporters arrived.

    He will now have to make or break to win the party presidency in what is expected to be a tight contest.

    He told reporters that he expects his detractors to use the issue of the sex scandal he was embroiled in to attack him.

    He is nevertheless ready to face up to the challenge: "I'm not immune, but I'm ready to face it."

    There are no perfect political leaders, he said.

    MCA polls: Liow to run for deputy president

    Posted: 21 Mar 2010 01:34 AM PDT

    Health Minister Liow Tiong Lai today announced he will be contesting for the deputy president post in MCA in the March 28 central committee (CC) polls.

    MCPX

    liow tiong lai announce running for mca deputy 210310 04The decision, announced at MCA headquarters in Kuala Lumpur, effectively renders it a two-way contest between Liow, who is Health Minister, and Housing and Local Government Minister Kong Cho Ha.

    Kong announced his candidacy for the deputy presidency yesterday.

    Liow said that in his 29 years as an MCA member, he has always believed in championing the party's cause.

    "MCA needs to return to its original platform as champion of the rakyat-and to strengthen the party and nation," he told a packed press conference this morning.

    Also present in the press conference were MCA Wanita chief Chew Mei Fun,Youth chief Wee Ka Siong and CC member Chor Chee Heung.

    Liow said he is willing to work together with whoever gets elected next week by the delegates into the CC to reinforce the party's position so that it can confidently face the next general election.

    'I will work with anybody'

    "It is my hope that all MCA members will work together towards the unity of the party. We must always remind ourselves that the party comes first, and remain constantly open to voices from the Chinese community when we perform our duties."

    NONEThe former party vice-president (right) also reminded party members that the objective of the upcoming party elections is to choose leaders with calibre, not to promote anyone's personal agenda.

    "I hope the delegates will vote according to what is best for the party and base their decisions on the abilities and sincerity of the candidates not according to factions or alliances.

    "The election is towards restoring the integrity and strength of the party," he said.

    Liow also thanked the MCA Integrity Restoring Task Force without whom, he said, fresh elections would not have been possible.

    He also described the MCA as a strong party in terms of its structure and grassroots mechanisms.

    "The current leadership conflict should not affect the vision of MCA. MCA needs to return to its original platform in order to be champion of the rakyat," the Health Minister said.

    Liow, who is also the Pahang MCA chief, will later today see 14 divisions in the state voicing their support for the Health Minister.

    Aligning with Ka Ting?

    Liow also said he can work with anyone chosen by the 2,000 party delegates and was not aligned to any one of the three factions that had emerged.

    ong ka ting interview 200310 05His answers to questions on this, however, indicated that he would be within former president Ong Ka Ting's camp.

    When asked whether he supported Ka Ting's wish to strengthen the party, Liow said he also harbours the same intention and does not want the party to split as it had done before.

    "I want to ensure the party is united and is strong again, as one," he said.

    Asked about his relationship with incumbent party president Ong Tee Keat, Liow reiterated that he was a team player and is able to work with anyone.

    Youth chief Wee, when met after the press conference, said he personally supports Liow's candidacy, as the latter is a fresh face in the central committee and a former Youth leader.

    Wee: time to rejuvenate MCA

    He also called on all young party members to support the younger generation at the party elections on March 28, saying it was time for renewal in the party and for 'young' candidates like Liow to take
    up top leadership positions.

    "I will give my full support to him (Liow). This is part of the party's rejuvenation and we need to see more young leaders come up.

    "In fact, I would like to appeal to the delegates in this forthcoming elections to give more chances to the young, dynamic and capable candidates from among the CC or VP (vice-presidents) to get elected," he was reported by Bernama as saying.

    liow tiong lai announce running for mca deputy 210310 01Wee (second from left), who is deputy education minister, said he was glad to see young and capable candidates like Liow coming forward to contest this time.

    Liow, was briefly appointed to the No 2 post after the October extraordinary meeting rejected a motion to reinstate Dr Chua Soi Lek as deputy president. The latter, however, was reinstated by the Registrar of Societies.

    Chua, will announce his candidacy later today at 3pm, where he is expected to go for the No 1 post. He will face off against former and present presidents Ka Ting and Ong Tee Keat.

    Chua's running mate will likely be Kong Cho Ha, who is also the Perak MCA chief.

    After MARCH 28, 2010, MCA Will Still Remain As An Umno Lapdog

    Posted: 21 Mar 2010 01:32 AM PDT


    By Ooi Kee Beng

    Undoubtedly, the 60-year-old MCA, just like the United Malays National Organisation (Umno), its senior partner in the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN), has had a long history of conflict. The current split, however, comes when the party is at its weakest; and BN, the coalition that had always been the vehicle for the MCA's success, is facing the strongest opposition it has ever known, having lost its two-thirds majority for the first time in last year's general election.

    One quick look at relevant tables shows that the MCA today has substantial support only in semi-rural and rural states.

    Indeed, despite being allocated 40 parliamentary seats by the BN to contest last year, it won only 15. Twelve of these are in Johor, Pahang and Perak.

    In clearly urban states like Penang, Selangor and the federal territory of Kuala Lumpur, it was wiped out, with the exception of one seat in Selangor. Urbanity and urban voters are a problem for the MCA, as it is for the BN and Umno.

    Given such a thrashing, one would have expected the MCA to suffer an immediate meltdown. That did not happen, partially thanks to its former president Ong Ka Ting retiring and thus taking part of the blame for the defeats.

    However, this paradoxically passed the buck to his successors. With the pyramid of power so much narrower at the top, tolerance for opposition within the party has become a luxury it could not afford.

    Dr Chua Soi Lek, the former Health Minister who resigned before the elections in the aftermath of a scandal where he was caught on video with his mistress in a hotel room, received formidable support in the subsequent party election, and emerged as deputy president. He has now been surprisingly sacked by the new president Ong Tee Keat. The old video was re-used to justify Ong's desperate move.

    Such a sudden disposal of a popular leader leaves those of Chua's supporters, whose political future depends on their man being ahead, understandably angered. They have vowed to challenge the president's decision. A nasty clash is imminent.

    What this reflects is the unease spreading through the party, as it is spreading within Umno as well, that the political future of many who wedded their lives to their party is in jeopardy. The cake has shrunk and its eaters are hungrier.

    The MCA's fate and fortune cannot be separated from Umno's. It is, after all, BN that brings power, not each member party by itself.

    With the weakening of race-based parties like MCA, Umno and their old ally, the Malaysian Indian Congress, it is tempting to conclude that even if ethnic identity remains strong among Malaysians, the willingness to let personal sentiment decide national politics is not as intuitively given a thing as it used to be.

    There are certainly signs suggesting such a development. A row of attempts to rouse racial feelings against the opposition — many done on the front pages of Umno's newspaper, Utusan Malaysia — have had limited success. Even the bizarre use of a cow's head by some Malays demonstrating against the building of a Hindu temple in their neighbourhood failed to anger Indian Malaysians into action.

    The inability of BN to regain voter support, as painfully revealed through its loss in all by-elections held on the peninsula since the general election, makes its leadership extremely uncertain about which card it can play.

    Should Umno spin itself as protector of Malayness, guardian of punitive Islam or custodian of secular governance?

    The danger here is that Umno/BN, left at its wits end, will get ever more desperate. Rumours are rife that Prime Minister Najib Razak is planning the fall of the Pakatan Rakyat government in Selangor.

    These are nourished by Najib's expressed wish to bring the state back into the BN fold and his becoming the Umno liaison chief in Selangor. After all, the BN regained Perak state soon after the PM moved in as Umno liaison chief there.

    The key question for MCA members to ask today — be they supporters of Ong or Chua — is whether or not the dubious recovery of power by Umno/BN through intrigues will make it impossible for the party to ever regain voter sympathy, and national relevance, no matter who is running the party.


    No Identification Is A Violation Of Rights

    Posted: 21 Mar 2010 07:06 AM PDT

    It was a tough decision - choosing between going for the SABM roadshow in East Malaysia or going for this trip down to Kuala Pilah to visit a family of rubber tappers.

    Perhaps you'll call me a katak di bawah tempurung - a severe case of living in a bubble and not knowing what happens - not on the other side of the world but - just approximately 130km south of Kuala Lumpur.

    The truth is, I didn't know rubber tappers still existed.


    I knew there was a huge demand for rubber early last century, but the textbooks I owned when I was still languishing in secondary school told me that it dropped drastically when synthetic rubber emerged.

    Evidently, there is still a demand, and rubber tappers still harvest latex everyday.

    The group I was with was organizing a camp for the children, and I had been recruited as the games mistress (ahem) cum arts & crafts director. Okay, I flatter myself with fancy titles, but it's the truth.

    I was also recruited to do a number of odd jobs, one of which was registration. Yes, this group I work with certainly knows how to squeeze every bit of manual labour out of innocent souls and I seem to be a glutton for punishment.

    But I digress.

    Registration was an interesting affair. It involved getting down the details of participants as they showed up and writing down their names on stickers, which functioned as name tags.

    Under normal circumstances, that is generally an easy task.

    I was to discover that life wasn't as simple as it looked.

    "What's your name?" I asked the first cheerful participant in Tamil. "Krebfojgwn," he mumbled.

    "How do you spell it?" I asked. I was met with a blank stare. And then he proceeded to spit out a string of letters that did not remotely resemble the name he had stated.

    A drop of sweat rolled down my brow. The camp was held at the house of a rubber tapper and her husband who had kindly volunteered their premises.

    However, the zinc roof and blazing heat were certainly not a decent combination for a KL born-and-bred, air-conditioned-office employee like Yours Truly.

    I later discovered that the abovementioned cheerful participant was named Kajenthiran. He was 10 years old and had 8 living siblings, the youngest of whom was 2 months old. His mother was barely 25 years old.

    Did he attend school? I wanted to know. He assured me he did. However, a couple of his brothers didn't.

    "Why?" I probed.

    "No letter," was the simple reply. What that meant, was that his brothers did not have birth certificates and because they didn't, they were refused admission into school.

    They weren't the only ones. There were a number of adults in their 20s who had neither birth certificates nor identity cards (MYKAD).

    What that essentially meant, was while they were born and had lived all their lives in Malaysia - never having ever gone out of the country - they had never made it into the records of the administration.

    The government had no clue they existed. More likely, the BN government didn't even care.

    After all, how were a bunch of illiterate rubber tappers of ethnic Indian origin going to ensure BN's 50-odd years of reign in Malaysia?
    (and perhaps another 50 to come)

    That is why the government wraps itself in copious amounts of red tape to discourage applicants from trying to register after the two-month registration period given for parents to register their children upon birth.

    This is not a new issue. The Human Rights Party (founded by Uthayakumar of HINDRAF fame) rails on and on about this.

    Some parents are irresponsible. And some were caught up with issues and failed to make the deadline.

    Whatever the reason, it is the constitutional right of every child of Malaysia to own his/her place in the nation. To be provided education like everyone else.

    But these rightful citizens have been denied this right and will continue to be denied as long as both the ruling coalition and the opposition turn a blind eye to their plight.


    ALANG2 NAK BELA GOLONGAN OKU .... JANGAN PILIH2

    Posted: 21 Mar 2010 12:56 AM PDT

    Oleh sitikengkang kong

    Yg prihatin Siti Jarum,

    Kenapa mau bising2 dgn drama Halimah Jongang tu? Baik jodol drama maupun tajuk lagu tu?

    Kalau awak betul2 prihatin dan begitu sangat mengambil berat perihal nak jaga hati orang2 kurang upaya (OKU) ...... kenapa dan mengapa awak tidak bising sama akan drama Skop Production (kepunyaan Datuk Yusuf Haslam) yg membawa jodol 'SI CAPIK' tu? Kan itu pun menggambarkan watak kecacatan seseorang yg bergelar OKU? Apa awak takut nak mempertikaikan orang yg ada gelaran 'datuk' punya drama? atau kerana itu drama bersiri siaran dari stesen tv RTM?

    Yang banyak lawak2 bodoh dok menampil watak2 manusia cacat .... ada yg mcm menonjolkan gigi rongak la, mulut rompong la, mata juling la .... pendek kata macam2 lagi ... mengapa masing2 tak sibuk nak bising?

    Ada yg watak dlm drama yg menampilkan manusia cacat akal, berlagak biul, sewel dan berbagai lagi .... pun tiada ada suara2 membantah pun?

    Kenapa yg ni pula jadi bising tak ketahuan hala jadinya?

    Kalau gitu sarankan kpd pihak stesen2 tv agar jangan terima drama2 yg ada penampilan watak2 orang cacat yg boleh kasi tersinggung golongan OKU tu.

    Kalau macam tu pihak tv hanya kena memaparkan orang2 yg cantik2 jelita sajalah untuk dipertontonkan kpd umum? Kalau diadakan peranan seperti itu kelak akan tersinggung perasaan dan hati golongan OKU.

    Masyarakat kita ni memang banyak yg cacat ... cacat fizikal .... cacat mental .... malah cacat keseluruhan akhlak dan moral, budaya tatasusila dan adab kesopanan. Masyarakat Melayu dah jadi haru biru.

    Masyarakat Melayu kita memang dah cacat .... pincang ..... tempang ...... itulah hakikatnya.

    Sepatutnya kita harus memaparkan kehidupan berbentuk realiti ... bukan sekadar lakunan yg berbentuk 'artificial' yg sentiasa di ada2kan oleh stesen2 tv (kononnya 'reality show').

    Watak2 (dan jodol) seperti ...... Halimah Jongang, Fatimah Juling sepatutnya tidak menjadi sesuatu yg begitu sensitif dan menjadikan sesuatu bahan untuk ejekan atau diketawakan, .....kerana inilah 'reality' yg sebenar2nya.

    ...... dan mungkin akan muncul watak2 seperti Jenab Jongot, Dollah Rompong, Sepeie Serombong, Din Boroi, Semah Sumbing, Tijah Tempang, Mah Pungkoq Lebaq, Timah Tonggek, Leman Teliang, Besah Mulut Rabit, Sabri Bibiaq Labuh, Juliana Juling Itik, Natasha Hencot, Sheila Ketot, Man Jerawat, Siti Pipi Lesong Hindek, Chah Pungkoq Labuh, Zura Mulut Lueh, Farah Mulut Herot, Jah Bahu Senget, Senah Tetek Landoq, Pin Ketumbit, Piah Hidung Penyet, Itah Mata Beliak, Cha Telinga Capang, Yah Mata Cemey dan banyak lagi watak2 cacat yg harus diberi penonjolan bagi menggambarkan realiti kehidupan masyarakat Melayu yg sememangnya cacat .... masyarakat pincang dlm serba serbi.

    Perkara2 macam ni .... Jangan buat bising ... jangan melenting ..... jangan melatah ... jangan terasa sangat ....it's all happening .... jangan bikin pening.... jangan ambil pusing......

    dan akhir sekali ...... JANGAN HANYA PILIH2 sahaja.

    sekian,
    Siti Kengkang
