SENIORS ARE GOING BACK TO SCHOOL AGAIN

SENIORS ARE GOING BACK TO SCHOOL AGAIN


SENIORS ARE GOING BACK TO SCHOOL AGAIN

Posted: 19 Jul 2010 11:35 AM PDT


I am a big advocate of lifelong learning. It doesn't matter whether it's for the paper qualifications or just for the fun of learning something new. I get all excited whenever I meet like-minded retirees. There's instant bonding.

That's exactly what happened last Sunday. I was at Wawasan Open University's Orientation Day for new students. There I met Monica Khoo, 68, a retired nurse and grandmother of five. She has just enrolled for a certificate course in Business Management, and is one of several retirees currently studying at WOU.

"I always like to try new things. It helps to activate the brain cells. Of course, there's that feeling of anxiety. Will I be able to cope with the challenges of open distance learning? It's so alien to me. But I am excited too, and definitely looking forward to my first tutorial next Sunday."

At WOU KL branch with Regional Office Director Mr Kuppusamy Chellappan, Acting Asst Manager Ms Janet Khaw (in blue) and Adm Assistant Esther (in green).

If you are seriously considering further studies, you might want to check out Wawasan Open University (WOU). You can choose from certificate to postgraduate courses. There's no maximun age limit. Entry requirements are flexible. Fees are really affordable as students aged 60 and above get a 50% discount. Other plus points: the medium of instruction is English, and the student population is truly multi-ethnic. Oh, did I also mention well-qualified and experienced tutors like Mr Fan Kok Keong below?

Advice from tutor Fan Kok Keong (click on image to enlarge).

By the way, WOU is not paying me a cent to promote it. I'm merely stating what is. Check out the website to find out more. It's still not too late to register. The new semester starts next week. There are two intakes a year, in January and July.

Cultural diversity enriches the learning experience for all students

Anwar's sodomy case: Leave Karpal out laaa!

Posted: 19 Jul 2010 09:43 AM PDT

Anwar Ibrahim's sodomy trial drags again, this time it was postponed to August 2. Judge Datuk Zabidin Mohd Diah was left to choice but to allow the adjournment because one of Anwar's lawyers, Karpal Singh was on medical leave.

And we can expect more adjournments after this. Why? For Anwar to gather more political support locally and internationally. As for Saiful, he too got to wait whether he can 'really' win this case, which caused him no embarrassment at all... not just yet.

Whatever it is, why must the Court has to wait to Karpal to recover in order to proceed with the case? Anwar got other lawyers with him and they are, I believe, as good as the DAP strongman, whom Anwar managed to 'tame' since they became good friends in Pakatan Rakyat. It is the same guy Anwar blasted and hated most when he was still with the government.

Yes, Karpal is a good lawyer but his age is catching up. Let's 'enlighten' him a bit by allowing the others to defend Anwar. Perhaps Anwar is becoming too dependent on Karpal as he sees some 'chances' to win the legal battle with Saiful.

The case has been prolonged for too long already. The Court must be firm next time not to allow any more postponements and adjournments (read here). There is nothing special about this case anymore, except that to distinguish who is actually the liar.

Who got buggered doesnt matter anymore. What matters most now is to safe the Court's time as there are other important cases waiting to be settled.

Who knows, maybe we would listen to the submarine scandal and its 700 million euros sidekick given to a company which is connected to a minister's wife after this. That is more interesting, doesnt it?

So, with or without Karpal, let just sum it up! If you are really clean and 'berani' enough, leave Karpal out of the case!


[Malaysia Today] Real Politik Dikemaskini

Posted: 19 Jul 2010 08:50 AM PDT


Dalam realpolitik ada yang lebih real. Yang lebih real ialah kuasa rakyat. Kerajaan Selangor mungkin goyang tetapi tidak akan runtuh kerana akarnya semakin kukuh. Kuasa rakyat ini jugalah yang akan menentukan apa yang akan terjadi kepada Anwar Ibrahim...


DARI JELEBU

Hishamuddin Rais

Ada tiga pekara yang wajib dilakukan oleh kerajaan Najib Rosmah. Tiga pekara ini wajib dilakukan untuk menyelamat harta kekayaan dan kuasa mereka dari di rampas kembali oleh kuasa orang ramai.

Tiga pekara ini bukan terlalu susah untuk difikirkan. Malah ianya tidak memerlukan batuan penasehat zionis APCO untuk memunculkan perancangan. Kita sendiri boleh memikirkan tiga pekara ini tanpa memerlukan ijazah PPE dari Oxford. Tahap jaguh kampong dan gedebe politik seperti Ibrahim Ali pun sedar hal ini.

Tiga pekara ini ialah :

1 - Anwar Ibrahim mesti di ketepikan

2 - Parti Pas wajib dipisahkan dari Pakatan Rakyat

3 - Propaganda untuk menghuru harakan Parti Keadilan Rakyat wajib diperbesarkan

Ketiga-tiga pekara ini wajib berjalan sarentak. Untuk kerajaan Najib Rosmah tiga pekara ini lebih penting dari dasar ekonomi baru atau model ekonomi baru. Lebih penting dari dasar luar negara. Lebih penting dari Rancangan Malaysia ke 10. Kerana rancangan ini bagitu penting sekali maka kerajaan Najib Rosmah akan menjanjikan apa saja untuk memastikan tiga pekara ini dapat direalisasikan.

Perak Mufti ain't no Saladin

Posted: 19 Jul 2010 07:20 AM PDT

Hundreds of years ago, maybe even a thousand or more, many Indians on the subcontinent, especially those from the lower caste became Muslims because Islam freed them from society's iniquitous shackles. As Muslims they could give the bird to human imposed social barriers.

For them, for justice, for humanity, Islam was the great social equalizer.

But wait, read The Malaysian Insider's Perak PAS Youth calls Harussani a racist, which says (extracts):

Perak PAS Youth also rejects Tan Sri Harussani's racist attitude and his responsibility as a Mufti. While abroad especially in Australia in June 2010 Tan Sri Harussani revealed his hate against other races during his ceramah with Malaysian students there.

Hmmm, what brand of Islam is he practising? Surely not the Islamic Great Equalizer!

If Perak PAS Youth's accusation has been correct, then the Mufti's unique brand of Islam has somehow accommodated his bigoted hate of 'other races', presumably non-Malays. Within the Malaysian context, the Mufti must have also included Chinese and Indian Muslims? Or worse, Arab Muslims?

Like the religion of the Hebrews-Israelis, his too has a 'chosen race' where other races are goyims (kaffirs) to be destroyed.


"When the Lord your God brings you into the land you are entering to possess and drives out before you many nations ... then you must destroy them totally. Make no treaty with them and show them no mercy." - Deuteronomy 7:1-2, NIV.

"... do not leave alive anything that breaths. Completely destroy them ... as the Lord your God has commanded you ..." - Deuteronomy 20:16, NIV.

Hmmm, charming people ... and in the Mufti's relevation to Malaysian students in Australia he showed his thinking were/are not different from those biblical Hebrews-Israelis.

Incidentally, HTF did he became a Tan Sri when he was the man responsible for nearly causing religious-racial violence through a seditious SMS in 2006 ...

... and worse, when the sh*t hit the fan he blamed the whole seditious crime on a woman. F* pathetic!

On July 1st we wrote,"Pakatan 4 vs BN 4" 13th July we posted this article.

Barely 3 weeks have gone past and the 1st Pakatan Rakyat Sarawak Council held yesterday has agreed that the opposition coalition will face off against BN in one-on-one battles in the upcoming state elections. 

According to a political watcher he said that Wong Ho Leng MP and Adun Bukit Assek mentioned that the Pakatan coalition needs to wrestle at least 36 seats in order to detrone the BN Sarawak. There was also a 4 point resolution in that it includes 

  • To gear up for Sarawak polls,
  • To resolve to capture Sarawak from BN,
  • To form a Pakatan committee to coordinate seat allocations, and
  • To come up with a joint manifesto for the election.

Kesan Kurang Subsidi dan Negara Bangkrap(Baik Buang UMNO).

Posted: 19 Jul 2010 05:13 AM PDT

Artikel saya sebelum ini mendedahkan bagaimana UMNO memberikan kontrak LCCT kepada syarikat yang menawarkan Rm1 billion sedangkan ada syarikat lain yang menawarkan perkara yang sama tetapi dengan harga RM750 juta.

Ia bererti perangai UMNO tidak berubah dan tidak akan berubah. UMNO akan terus menerus menghabiskan kekayaan negera demi mengkayakan UMNOPUTRA dan kroni2 mereka. Jalan keluar UMNO tidak lain hanyalah mengurangkan subsidi kepada rakyat Malaysia.
Pengurangan subsidi dan negara bangkrap mungkin satu konsep yang sukar untuk difahami oleh rakyat biasa yang tidak mempunyai pendidikan dalam matapelajaran ekonomi. Oleh sebab itu saya ingin membawa contoh hidup dari pengalaman saya yang hidup di Jakarta sekarang ini.

Kita semua tahu Indonesia telah bangkrap pada tahun 1997 dan terpaksa membuat pinjaman IMF (yang sehingga hari ini belum habis dibayar) kerana hutang mereka pernah sampai 200% dari pendapatan kasar mereka.

Akibat dari ekonomi Indonesia yang bankrap kerana dirompak Suharto dan kroni-kroni beliau, maka pendapatan negara terpaksa digunakan untuk membayar hutang. Lebih-lebih lagi wang minyak Indonesia telah kering kontang 3 tahun sebelum Suharto jatuh.

Akibat dari itu, Indonesia terpaksa memberhentikan banyak dari subsidi yang mereka bayar selama ini kerana terpaksa membayar hutang luar yang bertimbun-timbun. Akibatnya Indonesia terpaksa memotong subsidi makanan, minyak, gas dsbnya.

Harga-harga barang semuanya naik melambung-lambung kerana kerajaan Indonesia tiada duit untuk menampung kos subsidi yang mampu membantu rakyat mereka.

CONTOH BETAPA PERITNYA BILA SUBSIDI DIPOTONG: MAKAN TENGHARI

Contoh paling kecil yang saya ingin bawa adalah kos makan tengahari di luar. Oleh kerana saya bekerja dalam pejabat, maka saya terpaksa makan tengahari di luar.

Kos untuk makan luar sahaja, di gerai-gerai tepi jalan, mencecah IDR25 ribu = RM9. Biasanya, makan tenghari ini terdiri dari sepinggan nasi, seketul ayam atau seketul ikan serta sayur dan minuman segelas. Kalau di Malaysia, harga RM9, kita boleh menikmati makan tengahari di restoran dengan dua jenis lauk pauk. Kalau makan di gerai di Malaysia, kosnya tidak akan sampai RM9.

Gerai yang selalu saya makan ni pun, kalau orang tak biasa sudah tentu mereka tak masuk kerana rupanya yang begitu daif dan kebersihan yang tidak berapa baik.

Bagi orang-orang miskin di Jakarta ini, mereka cuma makan sehari sekali. Itupun makan nasi berlauk tempe sahaja semata-mata untuk menyambung nyawa. Tiap kali harga barang naik, keluarga-keluarga miskin terpaksa menarik anak2 mereka dari sekolah untuk membantu mencari makan bagi menanggung kos keluarga.

Itulah bahananya apabila negara bangkrap dan kroni dibela. Akhirnya rakyat terpaksa melacur diri mereka semata-mata mahu menampung kos makanan yang sering kali naik.

Itulah dia nasib Malaysia sekiranya UMNO terus memerintah. UMNO tidak akan berubah perangai mereka yang suka merompak kekayaan negara. Contoh di atas yang saya bawa tu cuma satu contoh kecil sahaja. Kita tak cerita lagi benda-benda lain yang naik yang menyebabkan kehidupan menjadi seperti neraka di dunia.

Di Malaysia, UMNO terpaksa memotong subsidi pada waktu yang sama perangai membazir mereka terus berjalan. Apabila dikritik, mereka kata kita pro IMF. Padahal, mereka perompak kelas satu.

Kalau kita tidak mahu hidup menderita seperti di Indonesia, maka wajiblah kita mencampak UMNO ke Laut Cina Selatan dengan kadar segera.

Bersara juga merupakan pengorbanan besar kepada rakyat.

Posted: 19 Jul 2010 04:16 AM PDT

Sekarang ini setiap pihak samada bangsa, kesatuan dan individu pemimpin wajar berkorban untuk mencari penyelesaian kapada semua kemelut politik yang kita semua hadapi.

Sejak merdeka lagi negara dipimpin oleh PERIKATAN yang kemudiannya menjadi BN, satu gabungan parti-parti didalam PERIKATAN dengan parti-parti pembangkang, seperti GERAKKAN disemenanjung dan parti-parti yang besar di Sabah dan Sarawak selepas insiden berdarah pada 13 May 1969.

Mungkin oleh kerana keperitan yang dirasai dan dialami oleh rakyat berbilang kaum semasa kejadian 13 Mei 69 itu, rakyat bersedia untuk bersatu serta hormat menghormati diantara satu kaum dan kaum yang lain dan masing-masing menerima segala yang dirancang oleh pemimpim yang memerintah khususnya Dasar Ekonomi Baru (DEB).

Sekarang ini sifat berkorban sudah tiada lagi. Sesiapa yang sudah dapat kuasa tidak sanggup berkorban kerana kuasa itu adalah 'ultimate' bagi mereka.

Kalau parti dan kerajaan menjadi lemah dan berpecah, itu tidak menjadi hal kepada mereka kerana mereka bukannya hendak melihat parti dan negara itu kembali kukuh, tetapi yang lebih sekali ialah kepentingan mereka sendiri.

Didalam kemelut yang tidak ada hentinya ini saya yakin pengorbanan pemimpin adalah faktor terpenting untuk penyelesaiannya. Apabila kemelut yang berlaku berkait dengan kelemahan dan kesalahan politik, moral dan jenayah pemimpin maka pemimpin yang terlibat mestilah mengambil giliran untuk bersara.

Jika kita menjadi isu yang menyebabkan kekalutan itu maka kita wajar berhenti dan mengambil tempat diluar kepimpinan parti dan kerajaan.

Jika kita masih kekal bergayut kepada jawatan yang kita anggap baik kepada kita tanpa memikirkan samada ia baik untuk rakyat pimpinannya maka yang akan timbul secara natural ialah kerosakkan kepada negara.

Dengan meletakkan jawatan maka kita akan dapat membuktikan kepada ramai yang kita benar-benar bekerja untuk rakyat dan apabila kita melakukan kesalahan yang sengaja seperti rasuah dan jenayah yang lain maka kita wajar berhenti apabila sudah diketahui oleh rakyat.

Politik itu adalah 'game of perception' dan jika rakyat sudah ramai yang menjadikan diri kita sebagai isu besar kepada kekalutan itu maka moralnya kita mestilah berhenti.

Disinilah letaknya moral demokrasi itu, bukannya bertahan kerana mendapat undi yang lebih kerana menggunakan kuasa yang mampu menekan dan memaksa orang memberikan sokongan dan undi kepada kita.

Dinegara kita ada contoh-contoh pengorbananyang boleh kita teladani. Tunku A Rahman meletakkan jawatan kerana beliau dikaitkan dengan isu yang boleh memecahkan perpaduan negara.

Dinegara lain banyak contoh-contoh lain tetapi biarlah kita ambil contoh yang ada disekeliling kita sahaja.

Tun Husein mengumumkan perletakkan jawatan dari awal lagi apabila beliau merasakan bahawa sudah ada tanda-tanda yang perpecahan mungkin berlaku apabila beliau berdepan dengan isu Dato Harun Idris ketua pemuda UMNO semasa itu.

Pihak yang tidak berpuas hati dengan cara pengendalian isu Harun itu maka kumpulan ini telah mencalunkan Hj Sulaiman Palestin untik bertanding jawatan Presiden menentang Tun Husien dan Sulaiman Palestin hanya berjaya mendapat 125 undi sahaja.

Kemenagan Tun Husein merupakan kemenangan mutlak tetapi oleh kerana beliau merasakan yang ahli UMNO tidak 'solid' dibelakangnya maka beliau mengumumkan tidak mempertahankan jawatannya sebagai Presiden dalam perhimpunan agung 1981.

Tunku dan Husein Onn boleh terus bertahan dengan jawatannya jika beliau mahu, tetapi beliau telah mengambil moral demokrasi itu sebagai 'ultimate' maka mereka meletakkan jawatan.

Mengorbankan apa yang ada itulah resepi yang menyebabkan parti dan negara kita aman damai. Tetapi sifat berkorban itu sudah tidak ada kagi didalam naluri pimpinan pada hari ini.

Hasilnya kemelut yang berlaku itu tidak berpanjangan dan merosakkan sistem pentadbiran negara dan parti.Walaupun mereka sudah tidak memegang jawatan itu lagi tetapi mereka berasa lega kerana mereka tahu mereka memberikan sumbangan kepada perpaduan rakyat denga bersara dan duduk dibawah.

Justru itu mereka memberikan sumbangan besar dengan bersara kerana mereka ingin melihat parti dan negara dalam damai dan sentosa. Mereka mengambil pengorbanan mereka sebagai sumbangan bukan ssebagai kerugian kepada mereka.

Jika Najib yang berjanji untuk sentiasa memberikan sumbangan kepada rakyat dan negara maka sekarang sudah sampai masanya bagi beliau memberikan sumbangan dalam memperbaikki keadaan kemelut hari ini.

Najib patut bersara bersama-sama Muhyiddin dan ramai yang lain dan menyerahkan kepada ahli-ahli UMNO untuk menentukan siapa yang mereka mahukan untuk memimpin.

Kalau kita tidak mampu untuk menyumbang dengan dengan jawatan dan tugasan yang ada, maka yang paling baik beliau untuk terus menyumbang kepada negara ialah dengan bersara sahaja daripada bertahan dengan jawatannya yang boleh menjauhkan parti dari rakyat dan membawa kerosakkan kepada pentadbiran negara.

Jika dengan kehaziran kita itu membuatkan rakyat menolak parti kita dalam pilihanraya maka parti kita akan kalah dan mampukah kita mengambil 'accountability' diatas kekalahan itu?

Kalau parti kita kalah apa gunanya menjadi Presiden, Timbalan Presiden atau Ketua Pemuda?

Jangan jadi pelepah kelapa yang mati terkulai dicelah-celah mayang kelapa tetapi tidak juga turun sehingga angin yang kuat melucutkannya dari pokok kelapa itu dan jatuh melayang kebumi.

Kita ingat ini; Dalam perlumbaan 100 meter misalnya bagaimana kita bermula kurang penting, yang penting kita sampai ketali penamat dengan waktu yang baik.

Hidup dalam dunia ini, segala apa yang kita lakukan ialah untuk kita disukai dan dihormati setidak-tidaknya oleh masyarakat dikeriah semasa usia tua kita. Bagi kehidupan kita ini, sepanjang mana pun usia dan umur kita, yang penting sekali ialah diakhir kalam; kita mati dalam kalimah.

Kita mesti mengotakan janji untuk berkorban. Jangan hanya berretorik yang tidak mampu dilaksanakan. Rakyat tahu untuk menilai mana yang baik untuk mereka.

Kepada pemimpin tertinggi kita, berkorbanlah untuk rakyat. Janganlah rakyat teraba-raba dengan kekeliruan.

Independent media: the vanguard of democracy

Posted: 18 Jul 2010 04:42 PM PDT

By G Krishnan

COMMENT The spread and increasing popularity of the so-called 'new media' has been nothing short of a revolutionary transformation. This new media, especially the independent type, has redefined journalism, the dissemination of the news, public engagement in current affairs, politics, and our everyday lives.

Indeed, it has redefined our culture.Especially fascinating is the fact that like it or not, politicians have had to wake up to the reality that old ways of controlling and manipulating information are now obsolete.

As much as the political establishment may lament the loss of those 'good old days' when the only source of news the public had was that which was largely controlled by those who also held the reigns of political power, there remains a deep schism and tension between the old, which are largely the state-controlled outlets, and new media, which are clearly far more democratic, competitive, and diverse.

Obviously, while the old establishment media has sought to make in-roads on tapping into the technologies and formats of the new media, it remains the case that the fundamental principle of monopoly and control, which has been typical of the old media has been rendered less effective and less consequential than ever.

To be sure, that monopoly and control is still relevant; state-controlled media still has a significant impact on shaping the public agenda, manipulating public opinion, and in promoting a particular ideology.

But the new media, which almost by definition have enabled the increased democratisation of society, posses a fundamental challenge for the political establishment. Prepared or not, it presents the establishment with an unavoidable conundrum: how to retain control of information in an increasingly democratised information age?

Contradictory signals


It is in this backdrop that one must interpret recent developments regarding, among other things, the crackdown on Harakah and Suara Keadilan, and the banning of the books by the cartoonist Zunar.

Indeed, these developments remind us all about the continued concerns about political intervention in the media and especially in journalism.

In April 2009, Najib was reported to have backed the idea of a freer state-owned media, where reporting can be done "without fear of consequences".

But not long thereafter, we began to confront the fact that the government seemed intent on restricting the reporting of various news stories that might not reflect so favourably on various political figures. How ironic.

Precisely how would one reconcile these two obviously contradictory signals? Of course the cynic might be inclined to insist that the former claims by the prime minister are nothing more than the typical posturing we've come to be accustomed to.

And there might after all be some truth to this particular interpretation.

One year later, the Joshua Wong episode at ntv7 reminded us – once again – just how far we truly have gotten in the media from being "without fear of consequences".

But more than exposing the potential lack of sincerity in such purported claims about wanting to promote a freer media, these contradictory tendencies reveal a fundamental flaw of the system of information control that has prevailed.

Free expression of ideas

That is, the continued presence and influence of the government in the media, and even more critically, the notion of state-owned media, cannot but stifle open inquiry, free debate, and deliberation - the democratic process.

State-owned and controlled media may be with us for the foreseeable future but the exploding popularity and credibility of the more independent outlets prevalent in the 'new media', which have emerged as a counter-weight to the state-owned forms of media, may be the single most critical check on the abuse of power in the country.

Where the credibility of the judiciary and police has been so acutely and systematically compromised, short of the alternative media, there aren't other genuinely credible institutions remaining to which one can turn to for keeping the political establishment in check.

State-owned media cannot be anything but a propaganda machine. This is an indisputable fact. A democracy, on the other hand, can only be nourished when the media can openly champion the free expression of ideas.

"People close to power in Malaysia" with Paris Hilton during Drug Bust!

Posted: 19 Jul 2010 12:24 AM PDT


By Pakac Luteb

Paris Hilton (pic above) has been arrested and held briefly police on the French island of Corsica after being caught with cannabis in her handbag, according to police sources.

Hilton was detained after arriving at the airport in Figari on a private jet from Paris on Friday.

Police found less than a gram of cannabis in her handbag, and released her soon afterwards without charge.

According to Corse-Matin newspaper, Hilton was travelling on the private jet with "people close to power in Malaysia", and was due to travel by yacht to the luxury resort of Porto Cervo in Sardinia, Italy.

The incident is the American's second brush with the law this month.

The 29-year-old was arrested during the World Cup in South Africa after a friend she was with took a joint to the Brazil-Netherlands quarter-final match in Port Elizabeth.

A darling of the tabloids, Hilton, the great-granddaughter of the Hilton hotel chain's founder, shot to fame in 2003 when her boyfriend leaked a video of their sexual escapades on the Internet.

Note how malaysia is mentioned. See what more you can find about the people "close to power" in Malaysia.

Who are they?

Why were they travelling with Paris Hilton?

Are they guilty under Malaysian law because ganja was on the aeroplane?

Islamic Teaching

Posted: 19 Jul 2010 12:09 AM PDT


Contributed by Anak Mami

The term "Muslim" simply means "believer" in arabic and has been around long before Muhammad came along. Currently, it is sad that they who call themselves believers have been grossly overtaken by ego and zeal, and complete ignorance of one of the fundamental principles of monotheism: The belief that only God guides whom He wills and only He knows who has been guided.

It is shockingly simple, but the reality is that there wasnt an "Islamic" empire in the middle east. There was an empire. They spread doctrine and sectarian teachings, brainwashing each generation as they went along. Those sectarian, indoctrinated zealots created what is now termed the "Islamic" empire that some people nowadays (usually deluded deprived marginalized poor people) glorify to feel good about themselves.

God/Allah/Yahweh/Jehovah/Elohim (semantics. Im typing in english so i use the term God) knows who the believers (arabic: muslims) are. Not these religionists who stand against what America is all about. I say kick them out. Accept religious freedom or get expelled. "Islamists" and "Muslims" in today's society are promoting the proselytism of children and think they have the God given right to know who are the believers. Such ego, hatred, and us-vs-them mentality does good for no society.

Islam is not something you learn from your parents, it's not something you can convert into, it is not something that anyone can judge you for save God. The Islamists are deluded and are paying the price of their ego and self-righteousness. They divide the world into believers and unbelievers/infidels (arabic: kafir).
To the Islamists out there:

1) Only god guides whom he wills; only God leaves people astray; Only God knows who the believers are.

2) You are nobody.

3) You change nothing.

There is no such thing as a "moderate Islam". Islam is Islam. Islam according to all mainstream doctrines/sects will never inline with basic human values for the basic principle in monotheism highlighted above simply doesn't exist. Islamists actually believe that they can "convert" people – by which they mean indoctrinate people into accepting their view of the world. God guiding people? Well that is not guidance…it's indoctrination.

Islam is ultimately very humanitarian and libertarian if defined by the principles stipulated in the Quran. However, you must understand that those who call themselves "muslim" dont only follow the Quran – they follow 300+ year old oral history as well. This is where all your stoning and veiling and whatnot comes from.

Different "muslims" (eg sunni vs shia) have different collections of oral history and that's why they are always fighting and can never reconcile. They will never stop believing in these oral history, myth, legend and lies for the simple reason that without it, Islam as a "religion"/doctrine doesnt exist.

The world of the people who call themselves "believers" (arabic: muslim) is in the dark ages.

Serves them right.

They have nobody to blame but themselves.


Islam in Malaysia

Posted: 19 Jul 2010 12:01 AM PDT

The intense levels of Islamic hatred emanating from this country. I have been writing about this for years at my own site. The Gaza 'aid' flotilla, which happened in 2010, not 2009, got an enormous amount of press here in the government-run media here in Malaysia…media that is licensed and in truth essentially owned by the Malaysian government. They took the opportunity to demonise Israel and laud the jihadists on the flotilla itself at every opportunity. The nine Malaysians who themselves were onboard the flotilla, and are lionised as national heroes, were greeted upon their arrival here in KL by no less than the Malaysian Prime Minister himself (Najib).

Najib's country, his government, clerics, media and educational arms clamor and shriek for another holocaust, for the wholesale removal if not slaughter of Jews. And the kufr, dhimmified world turns a deaf ear and a blind eye.

Malaysia, lest we forget, is also the home of some of Southeast Asia's most dangerous and lethal terrorists, such as Noordin Top and Azahari Husin. These men who both at one time taught at government-run universities were behind the Bali bombings and a number of other deadly attacks on infidels in Indonesia. After these monsters finally reached room temperature, the bodies were shipped to their homeland of Malaysia for a hero's sendoff before huge fawning crowds, their Malaysian families intensely proud of their relative's deeds.

Malaysian muslims has been suppressing and discriminating minority, ethnic chinese and indian, since the independence of Malaysia. I am glad to know that americans are getting to know the true colour of malaysian muslims who are mostly ethnic malay. Muslims are the cancer of the world. Those malaysian muslim leaders are taliban in suit. So, don't be fooled by their appearances.

Did Obama take any of this into consideration before declaring Malaysia to be a great 'friend, ally and partner' of his country the United States?

Malaysian Experts on Islam: Wearing Symbols of Other Religions is Badwrong

Posted: 19 Jul 2010 03:29 AM PDT

From The Star 19 July 2010:

Football jerseys Muslims should not wear

KOSMO! carried a report about Muslims who wittingly or unwittingly wear football jerseys which display images of crosses, liquor brands and devils.

Johor Religious Council adviser Datuk Nooh Gadot said wearing such jerseys were forbidden in Islam.

"It is as if Muslims are worshipping and exalting the symbols of other religions. Islam does not compromise on this matter, regardless of whether it is worn for fun, fashion or sport," he said.

Perak Mufti Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria agreed with Nooh and said although Islam did not forbid its followers from participating in sports or dressing up, it has to be done within the boundaries of Islamic law.

Among the football teams whose crests carry images of the cross are Brazil, Portugal, Serbia, Barcelona and Norway, while Manchester United carries the "Red Devil" slogan on its team crest.

I suppose this means that Muslim citizens of the UK, Denmark, Finland, Jamaica, Switzerland and so on can no longer bear their country's flag.

Crusader symbol!!!

Also based on the same principle, Buddhists, Christians, Hindus and so on should no longer wear clothing with the Malaysian flag on it, as the flag includes the Islamic crescent. The same goes for Singaporeans. Ironically, despite living in the most populous Muslim nation in the world, non-Muslim Indonesians have no problem here as their flag is religiously neutral.

All non-Muslims should also immediately quit the Red Crescent Society, as serving in it involves wearing a symbol of a religion other than their own. Quit worshiping that Bulan Sabit Merah first aid kit, blasphemers!

Are you a Muslim? Do you live on planet Earth or in this universe? Quickly, Johor Religious Council adviser Datuk Nooh Gadot insists that you emigrate to another dimension in order to avoid being associated with the constellation known as the Southern Cross!

Muslim gamers must from now on avoid all health packs as these are usually represented by a cross symbol. The preferred tactic for making it through Left 4 Dead is now to just run madly through the level and hope computer-controlled hunting rifle equipped Zoey gets eaten first.

Players of RPGs cannot add to their stats as this involves a '+' symbol that looks like a cross, and by all means avoid those Paladins, Clerics, Priests, Shamans, Necromancers, and any equipment with a cross or Yin-Yang symbol on it! To cast Holy Bolt is to exalt a flaming magical cross like some skeleton-blasting infidel!

(Wait, can you even use the word 'exalt'? The second letter is a little cross! And you'd better not use unbeliever fonts like Comic Sans because the t is replaced by yet another Christian symbol! DON'T GO OPEN MICROSOFT WORD TO TEST IT, IT IS NOT COMPROMISE-ABLE!)

And most egregriously, those who play Team Fortress 2 must never be Medics or be healed by one, as this involves a guy with a cross on his uniform shooting out little crosses at the wounded teammate in order to fill his little cross-shaped healthbar - the worst combo worshipping-and-exalting-the-symbols-of-other-religions offence possible! Perak Mufti Tan Sri Harussani Zakaria will personally dominate you with only taunt kills if you do not comply!

PS. See also previous examples of similar mentality, only worse – applying it to members of those countries' teams!

A Weekend of Losses

Posted: 18 Jul 2010 10:16 PM PDT

We seem to have suffered a number of losses this weekend :(

I didn't know blogger Dalilah Tamrin (pictured on right) personally, but was sad to hear of her passing :( Al-Fatihah.

Also passed on: Hasmuzair Hassan, a young PKR activist. A fatal road accident leaves behind a homemaker widow with three children ages 1-6 :(

Any donations can be made to said widow, Nazylinda Abdullah, AMbank – 0040024033611.

There is also a Majlis Tahlil for him this Thursday, 22nd July, 5pm, at the PKR HQ (2nd floor) in Merchant Square, near Tropicana.

Some background below, Al-Fatihah.

Setiausaha Kerja Angkatan Muda Keadilan Malaysia, Sdr.Hasmuzair bin Hassan telah meninggal dunia sebentar tadi dipercayai akibat kemalangan jalanraya. Beliau dipercayai mangsa langgar lari oleh sebuah lori yang menyebabkan motorsikal yang ditunggangi beliau hilang kawalan.

Allahyarham meninggalkan seorang balu (tidak berkerja) dan 3 orang anak yang berusia antara 1 hingga 6 tahun. Allahyarham amat dikenali dikalangan pimpinan AMK di seluruh Malaysia dan sikap beliau yang mudah mesra membuatkan beliau amat mudah didampingi oleh setiap pimpinan. Beliau adalah anak ke 4 dari 11 adik beradik.

Allahyarham berasal dari Perlis merupakan SUK AMK yang begitu komited dengan tugasannya. Penulis secara peribadi begitu rapat dengan Allahyarham dan kali terakhir penulis bertemu dengan Allahyarham ketika "Retreat AMK" di Dusun Eco Resort, Bentong, Pahang pada 9 -11 Julai 2010. Jenazah akan dibawa ke kampung halaman Allahyarham di Kg Sungai Geti, KM2 Jalan Mata Air, Arau, Perlis.

AMK Gelang Patah turut merasa kehilangan seorang sahabat yang begitu komited terhadap tugasannya. Salam takziah buat keluarga Allahyarham. Penulis sempat meminta Sdr. Din Binjai (Exco AMK Malaysia) untuk memaklumkan kepada semua pimpinan AMK di seluruh Malaysia agar dapat menubuhkan tabung derma bagi membantu keluarga Allahyarham. Alhamdulillah semuanya telah diuruskan sebaiknya oleh teman2 yang turut merasai kehilangan Allahyarham.

Penulis juga telah meminta Setiausaha AMK Johor agar memaklumkan kepada semua pimpinan AMK Cabang diseluruh Johor untuk mengadakan Tabung Derma bagi membantu keluarga Allahyarham. Segala sumbangan boleh disalurkan terus ke akaun Nazylinda Abdullah (Balu Allahyarham) AMbank – 0040024033611. Penulis menyeru kepada pembaca agar sama2 menderma bagi meringankan beban keluarga Allahyarham.

Bersama kita menghadiahkan Al-Fatihah kepada Allahyarham Hasmuzair bin Hassan, semoga roh Allahyarham ditempatkan bersama-sama roh orang2 yang beriman… Al-Fatihah..
