readmore Good posture vs. political posturing Enter the Third Force « The People's Parliament my foot!
Pakatan Rakyat and a great many of the rakyat have one common aspiration : to kick the present corrupt BN government out come the 13th General Election.
← CAN YOU BELIEF IT! Impotent husband 'allows' father to rape wife for child & A 36-year-old man married his teenage daughter and made her pregnant ,
Raja Petra and Harris Ibrahim are the
newtemplates of is posturing in those ads, telling voters they stood up to the is posturing because they are up for destroyingp PKR and been accused of being a political lapdog and partisan for MAHATHIR
Biased people parliament position of Haris and RPK , DESTROYING PKR TIME FOR PKR TO GET OF Jeffrey Gapari Kitingan.
To be Prime Minister, Anwar Ibrahim needs to tread a fine line between idealism and the pragmatism of political reality. Nobody can get that exactly right. Anwar can only try.

Al Fatihah! A legend of Malaysia's Football world has passed away. Isa Abu Bakar @ Isa Bakar passed away yesterday in Penang. He was 58.
I do not know Isa Bakar in person but I am a friend of his elder brother, (Rtd) former Assistant Commissioner of Police Tuan Osman Bakar.
I can only remember how when Isa Bakar had the ball at his feet, the opposing team's goalkeeper would surely be hard pressed to stave off his fiery strikes into the net!
These was in the 60s when legends such as Allahyarham Isa Bakar, Allahyarham Mokhtar Dahari, Namat Abdullah, Dato Soh Chin Aun, Santokh Singh, the late David (Spiderman) Arumugam and many others used to represent Malaysia in our national team and made us as a nation be so proud of them in the world of competitive football back then.
Nothing much to be proud of the Malaysian team lately.
I'd like to express my heartfelt condolences to the family of Arwah Isa Bakar.
Malaysia has lost another precious son of this soil.
May his soul rest in peace.

Alunan dan teriakkan Merdeka yang saling kita dengar saban tahun amat memberi makna kepada rakyat yang memahami erti kemerdekaan yang sebenar. Hari kemerdekaan yang kita sambut pada 31h Ogos setiap tahun itu hanyalah untuk mengingati hari negara kita berjaya mentadbir negara sendiri dengan pemimpin kita sendiri serta menentukan arah perjalanan negara kita.
Kita telah memilih sistem demokrasi untuk rakyat memilih sesiapa atau pihak mana yang diyakini boleh mentadbir negara mengikut selera dan kemahuan majoriti rakyat. Itulah sebabnya demokrasi didefinasikan sebagai keraajaan yang dipilih rakyat dan untuk rakyat.
Pada 31 Ogos '57 merupakan hari pertama kita mentadbir negara kita sendiri dan kita telah merdeka dari campurtangan pihak kolonial British dalam menentukan segala-gala kehendak rakyat dan negara kita. Kita mempunyai Perdana Menteri sendiri dan dianya tak lain dan tidak bukan adalah YTM Tunku Abd. Rahman Putra Al-haj.
YTM Tunku sangat terkenal dipesada antarabangsa khususnya dikalangan negara-negara Commonwealth. Beliau merupaka seorang yang masyor dan tidak payah mengupah APCO, Satchi & Satchi atau mama-mana agensi antarabangsa untuk menaikkan nama Malaysia atau Malaya sebelum itu dikalangan masyarakat antarabangsa.
Nama pemimpin dan negara kita harum diperingkat antarabangsa tanpa membayar walaupun sepuluh sen untuk agensi antarabangsa kerana nama baik itu adalah 'original' tanpa dibantu untuk dibantu dengan pihak-pihak yang lain. Malaya atau Malaysia selepas itu bukan negara digeruni tetapi disegani oleh pemimpin antarabangsa.
Rakyat yang sudah berumur tentu masih ingat suatu insiden dalam mana TUNKU naik berang dengan pemerintahan Apartheid Afrika Selatan dan mengusulkan negara itu digantung keahliannya sebagai anggota Commonwealth. Usul Tunku itu telah disokong oleh Perdana Menteri British, Harold Macmiland. Persidangan Commonwealth itu akhirnya bersetuju untuk menggantung keahlian Afrika Selatan sebagai anggota Commonwealth.
Imej baik pemimpin kita semasa itu bukannya imej tempelan tetapi imej yang semulajadi dan dihormati oleh masyarakat antarabangsa juga dengan penghormatan semula jadi.
TETAPI adakah perjuangan kemerdekaan itu sudah sampai kepenamatnya? Adakah dengan laungan MEDEKA! MERDEKA! MERDEKA! Pada 31 Ogos '57 itu menandakan tamatnya perjuangan dan sudah tidak ada lagi tekanan terhadap negara dan rakyat?
Sesungguhnya untuk memerdekan negara dari cengkaman penjajah sudah terbukti lebih mudah dari memerdekakan negara dari cengkaman yang datangnya dari dalam negara dan oleh rakyat serta pemimpin kita sendiri. Penjajahan oleh orang dan kaum kita sendiri adalah satu perjuangan yang lebih hebat dan belum ada pun nampak hasilnya walaupun banyak pihak yang sedang bertungkus lumus untuk memerdekakan kita dari cengkaman dari pihak penjajah dalam negara kita sendiri.
Kalau dikaji dan ditelaah jangan halus orang Melayulah yang dijajah selama-lamanya. Jika zaman penjahajan British dahulu orang Melayu dilekakan dengan nilai-nilai yang negatif, dan dibentuk sikap mudah berpuas hati dan tidak mahu bekerja keras, orang Melayu kini sedang menghadapi tekanan untuk menjadi umat yang hanya mengikut dan menghalalkan segala perbuatan mungkar pihak yang memimpin mereka.
Orang-orang Melayu dihidangan juadah rasis yang tidak ada tolok bandingnya, tetapi menuduh pihak yang lain yang memainkan isu rasis ini. Orang Melayu yang tidak puas hati dengan rekod yang buruk partinya untuk terus menyokong kononnya itu sahajalah cara untuk menyelamatkan orang Melayu dari hanyut dinegaranya sendiri.
Tetapi Pemimpin-pemimpin parti in jika terus dibiarkan berkuasa maka harta benda rakyat akan terhakis kerana ketamakkan pemimpin membolotnya dengan menggunakan kuasa yang diberikan oleh orang Melayu dan rakyat keseluruhannya. Orang Melayu masih dijajah oleh pemimpin mereka sendiri yang tidak ada sifat untuk membangunkan rakyat selain dari membangunkan diri individu mereka sendiri.
Orang Melayu masih dalam pencarian dan masih belum berjaya mendapat memerdekan diri mereka dari sikap serba salah dan was-was. Bebarap NGO Melayu telah wujud hasil dari usaha pencarian ini, tetapi mereka yang menyertai NGO ini, seperti PERKASA dihantui oleh pemimpin UMNO, dan yang terakhir diselar hebat oleh Ketu Pemuda UMNO Malaysia. Kalau balik kepangkuan UMNO mereka akan dipergunakan oleh pemimpin parti itu untuk kepentingan pemimpin, isteri dan kroni-kroni yang lain.
Dengan keadaan ini mereka yang masih dengan pemimpin UMNO sudah dianggap lemah oleh bangsa lain khususnya dikalangan BN sendiri. Maka parti komponen seperti MCA sudah menunjukkan sikap tidak percaya kepada UMNO pula. Kenapa keadaan ini berlaku?
Jawapannya mudah; sebabnya ialah sifat serba salah dan perasaan was-was yang tidak menentu dikalangan orang Melayu. Perasaan was-was ini tidak lain dan tidak bukan ialah kerana mereka sentiasa ditakut-takutkan dengan isu rasis yang menebal yang dibaja oleh pihak yang sedang berkuasa.
Pendekknya orang Melayu tidak habis-habis dijajah dan diperkotak katikkan oleh bangsanya sendiri. Ramai yang merasakan yang mereka belum lagi merdeka untuk memilih pimpinan negara. Dua puluh tiga tahun dahulu orang Melayu pernah dihina dengan pembunuhan pertubuhan kebanggaan pejuang-pejuang Melayu kerana membawa kemerdekaan kepada negara. Sekarang pertubuhan itu sudah tiada dan pertubuhan yang menggantikannya yang menggunakan nama yang sama tidak pernah dalam sejarah memerdekakan negara ini.
Pada hakikatnya orang Melayu masih jauh dari menikmati kemerdekaan. Yang menikmati kemerdekaan ialah pemimpin-pemimpin yang bebas dan 'merdeka' untuk menekan pihak-pihak yang mereka rasakan sebagai penghalang kepada mereka untuk terus menjajahi rakyat kursusnya penjahan terhadap orang Melayu. Penjajahan terhadap orang Melayu yang terakhir iala dengan pengenalan kosep 1Malaysia yang mungkin tidak difahami oleh orang yang memperkenalkannya sendiri.
Kepada orang-orang Melayu, perjuangan kita sekarang ialah untuk mencapai kemerdekaan yang hakiki. Entahkan cepat entahkan lama lagi, kita berharap perjuangan ini akan diizin Tuhan untuk berjaya dan berada didalam sepenuh keredhoanNya.

What else can we categorize the bunch of lunatics who burn our Malaysian flags and desecrate our Embassy in Jakarta with their faeces as?
These scum of humankind obviously are made up of those who are ungrateful that Malaysia as a nation provides employment and trading opportunities for millions of Indonesians who enter our country mostly illegally and only a small portion of them do so legally.
As one who frequents the Chow Kit Wet Market frequently both to buy our groceries and to take photographs of the mostly Indonesian stall helpers and petty traders there, I know how they will suffer like hell if the condescending Government of Malaysia is to unexpectedly take offense and decide that they have had enough of the rudeness of the uncouth masses of Indonesian riff raff who have for countless times gone over the limit in insulting our nation and its flag!
Really! Other countries would have taken action and seen to it that the illegal immigrants who make up more than 3 million in number who have come and settled down in this country get packing back to wherever they came from but not Malaysia!
The Malaysian Government may have their faults and not be the best that there is in terms of economic achievements but if you want to compare us with other no nonsense accepting nations such as the island Republic of Singapore or Australia, then Malaysia truly stands out as a country which is just so forbearing in terms of humanitarian considerations as a government.
The odd cases of some Malaysian employers who abuse their domestic maids are usually made up of Chinese and Indian Malaysians who do not in turn truly represent their race in terms of sadistic heartless abusers.
These animals in human form are to be found in all races or ethnicities. We all know that. Even today, there was a case of a Sri Lankan maid who had nails and needles driven into her body by her sadistic Saudi employers. Does that mean each and every Saudi employer is a demonic entity who is merciless and vile? Surely not!
There are even sickos amongst the Westerners out there who commit all kinds of vile crimes against their own kind or abuse whomsoever they can in countries such as the United States of America, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and other European countries.
But this constant Anti Malaysia demonstrating by a bunch of useless scum amongst the masses of Indonesians is just too much for even myself to handle!
They have times and times again behaved so ruthlessly and outrightly are so bloody rude that frankly sometimes I wonder if Allahu Ta'ala is punishing them every now and then through the natural disasters because of these sick weirdos who are so ungrateful to the uncountable accounts of good deeds and help that Malaysia as a neighboring nation has forked out to the Peoples Republic of Indonesia?
Have these lowlifes demonstrating in front of our Malaysian Embassy in Jakarta forgotten who were amongst the first to help the 26th December 2004 Tsunami victims in Acheh, Indonesia?
Which country has been frequently helping their fellow compatriots every time an earthquake destroys and kills hundreds of thousands of their fellow Indonesians?
Have they forgotten how Malaysians just come to the rescue of the earthquake victims in Padang, Sumatera?
Hmmm...sometimes the actions of these group of rude, uncouth mass of idiots embarrassing the rest of Indonesia reminds me of the Malay parable 'Bagaikan melepaskan anjing tersepit!' or ' Kita memberi madu dibalas tuba!'
Maybe Malaysia needs to be a bit more cruel to be kind in the future by just minding our own business the next time disaster strikes others around us?
Perhaps then, those clamoring to 'Sweep Malaysians' out of Jakarta and its suburbs would then wake up to the reality that they ought to really thank Allahu Ta'ala that they have us as their neighbors and be eternally grateful to this nation that those idiots out there in Jakarta wish to annihilate and destroy?
Just see how our Royal Malaysian Police are so quick to stop the burning of the Indonesian flag by our enraged members of the Malaysian citizenry!!
Our police force do not simply standby and watch the national flag of the lowlifes in Jakarta burn and get desecrated.
The world is watching and knows who is more cultured and patient in dealing with scum who deserve no mercy the next time they get whupped by The Almighty?
I just hope that the Government of Indonesia is much more proactive in seeing to it that our Malaysian Embassy, our flag and our citizens currently there in their country are given more protection from the ingrates protesting against us for flimsy reasons and excuses!
If they still allow those rascals to desecrate and threaten our citizens out there, then maybe its time to rethink our diplomacy towards people who do not know how to appreciate our nation's help and assistance to them all these while?
Meanwhile, to those of you my fellow Malaysians who feel like burning a flag, here is a site that allows you to vent your feelings as you please!
Hehehehe...it's not the real thing but just like Counter Strike, it gives you room and space to release that raging anger in your heart, the cyber way! :P
Not like those wackos in the streets before our Embassy in Jakarta!

Cakap cakap....Anwar & Kamarulbahrin.
To be Prime Minister, Anwar Ibrahim needs to tread a fine line between idealism and the pragmatism of political reality. Nobody can get that exactly right. Anwar can only try.
He will struggle to contain PAS and DAP within the confines of Pakatan Rakyat and amidst the close quarters of religion and dogma. With the timing of the general election still to be decided there are already soothsayers who pronounced Sabah already lost. There are those who are certain that Zaid is going for the number Two post, which by inference indicates he is actually aiming for the number one post! There are already question asked if the Malays will accept Lim Guan Eng as Prime Minister, Lim Kit Siang and Karpal as Governor of Penang and Malacca? And was one being mischievous when Jui Meng was suggested as Mentri Besar of Johor?
All this before the year when a general election year is to be called was set – not day or month but the year! Do you wonder sometimes how our Pakatan Rakyat leaders cope?
Yes we know that they need to be prepared for all eventualities....but steadylah! Be confident that within Pakatan Rakyat there is enough wisdom and common sense to meet our aspirations. Our hope, our expectations and our dreams of living a good life in a good country.
So for now hold your tongue. We are family. Discuss our differences, and our misgivings as a family should – within our self and within the four walls that is our home. Do not let others who are not with us interfere in our dealings and with how we run our life. Not all can be trusted to understand our fight. Not all can be depended upon to help us up when we fall. Trust only those who through their actions and deeds understand our cause. Reject those that seek to engage us in discussions where the food we eat, the clothes we wear, the language we talk, the color of our skin and the religion we practice is reason enough for them to call us a friends or an enemy.
Think in depth about the issues that matters to you. Understand your limitations and accentuate your strengths. Commit yourself by your deeds to making a decent future for our children and above all be true to yourself. It will take courage to live the life of our conviction. There will be enough courage and wisdom in the leaders of Pakatan Rakyat to lead us if we falter.
For Anwar and those Pakatan Rakyat leaders in the front lines I take heart from these lines by Robert Jarvik "Leaders are visionaries with a poorly developed sense of fear and no concept of the odds against them."
What courage does it take for Anwar, Lim Kit Siang, Karpal, Tok Guru, Zaid, Jui Meng and all those Pakatan Rakyat front liners to go against UMNO and Barisan Nasional? I remember meeting Bahrain – you all know him as Dato' Kamarul Bahrain Abbas: MP Telok Kemang – many years ago when Mahathir was God, UMNO his disciples and Malaysia his Kingdom – and I remembered asking within myself why was Bahrain with Anwar then when Anwar was within the four walls of Sungai Buloh?
You can call it loyalty, you can call it anything you like. But now I know this. Bahrain knew then what we know only now. He knew that there will be a Pakatan Rakyat to do battle with UMNO and Barisan Nasional and that Anwar will lead Pakatan Rakyat into the 13th General Election with a real possibility of forming Government after the elections were over. I now call that hindsight. I knew some people, including me, that called Bahrain a lunatic back then! Sorry brother, forgive me.

The Rocket is doing its best to keep the man on the moon away from earth, shooting up regular promises of power sharing and telling them no one on earth wants to listen to their plans.
Well over the past few months I have heard calming news from the men on the moon.

9-11 2001. > 9-11 2010.
It's gonna be another annual witch hunt of Muslims around the globe accused of belonging to the faith of 19 Saudis who allegedly orchestrated the devastation of America's twin World Trade Center towers on that fateful day on September the 11th, 2001.
Watch this video and think for yourself if any planes actually hit the towers?
With the high technology available in the USA, we can never know as to what else they are capable of?
Since 9-11, there has been numerous research and studies to determine the exact causes which led to the destruction of those WTC twin towers?
If anyone out there really cares for the truth, then please do your own studies and investigate the circumstances leading to the death of 3000 over people who can be best described as victims of a major conspiracy that leads many top American experts and even security enforcement and military officials to come forward and declare that 9-11 is nothing but an inside job!

Go and read it in its entirety, but here are some excerpts:
We call ourselves Malaysian but when we come over to West Malaysia, we might as well be aliens in hostile land.
I'm sorry, too. We could have achieved so much, if only we had our priorities right.

In Malaysia - an organization has the legal right to storm your house and circumcise your foreskin on your penis regardless of your religion???? so you better lock your doors and widows
PARIT BUNTAR: S Banggarma, who was declared "a Muslim" by the Penang High Court on Aug 4, defied the Islamic authorities and demonstrated her Hindu belief by carrying "paal kudam" (pot of milk) at a temple festival here last Friday. The mother of two offered her penance to Hindu goddess Mariamman at Sri Muthu Mariamman Kovil fire-walking festival in Dennis Town Estate in the morning together with hundreds of Hindu devotees.
Judicial Commissioner Yaakob Sam declared in his 40-minute oral judgment that the 28-year-old mother of two was a Muslim and therefore would have to resolve her "unwitting conversion" dispute with the Syariah Court. Banggarma, whose Muslim name is Siti Hasnah Vangarama Abdullah, instantly brushed aside the verdict as "unfair and unrealistic".
Banggarma is married to fisherman S Sockalingam in Tanjung Piandang, Perak, in 2000 and has two children -- Kanagaraj, nine, and Hisyanthini, three.
Banggarma claimed that she was unwittingly converted by the state Islamic religious authorities at the age of seven while she was staying in a welfare home in Kepala Batas, Penang.
However, recently the state Islamic authorities stormed into her house and forcibly circumcised and converted her Hindu husband M Muniandy into Islam. Rani's children, too, are facing the same predicament.

Pix/Parpukari: Lim Guan Eng caricatured by Umno blogs.
Courtesy of http://Hartalmsm.wordpress.com/
Guan Eng, now do you see what can happen!? Talking about 'rope' and giving your enemies enough of it to hang you with …
Following the path beaten by the Perak mufti, Mahathir (we're using him one name, like 'Madonna') found an easy opening to take a sly dig at LGE while riding on his favourite hobbyhorse of 'Malay unity' and exhorting that "Muslims cannot be weak".
Bernama reported the ex-PM as saying — "The name of the nation's Muslim leader must be mentioned in Friday sermons in mosques because Islam is the official religion of the country" — during the breaking-of-the-fast at a Perkim function on Tuesday. (Icker-Tee, btw, is a Perkim national council member and the two pious men keep each other in good company.)
Going into his usual scaremongering mode, Mahathir continued: "Don't think one day it will not be possible for Friday sermons to be mentioning the name of a non-Muslim leader because they are in power and we [Malays] are weak."
When Utusan frontpaged the story about the mention of Guan Eng's name in the doa in Penang mosques, Lim Kit Siang condemned the article as the "most irresponsible act in the history of Malaysian journalism". Lim Sr demanded that both the newspaper and Ahmad Zahid Hamidi who first to raised the ruckus must apologise.
Penang state exco in charge of religious affairs Abdul Malik Abul Kassim and Anwar Ibrahim quickly came to Guan Eng's defence although Nik Aziz chose to keep mum.
Since then, the Umno has had a field day grinding this grist for the mill.
Insider reported yesterday:
Malacca Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam accused his Penang counterpart of fanning "communal" politics and challenged Lim Guan Eng to state if he planned to become a Muslim, referring to the continued khatib controversy in the island state.
"I want to ask Lim Guan Eng, (do you) want to embrace Islam? Lim Guan Eng, do you agree with the Penang mosque praying for you to enter Islam?"asked Mohd Ali.
"If yes, I will also pray for you," he told reporters here, straight-faced.
Guan Eng's political opportunism to win the heart — and vote — of the Malay masses has turned into 'senjata makan tuan'. You can bet that Umno will work the ground to rile up the grassroots and the 'citer' (story) will grow in the telling in the Umno-controlled media and blog propaganda.
The Caliph Umar Abdul Aziz wannabe will now need all the firefighting help he can get from his PAS and PKR Muslim counterparts just to contain the flames fanned by Umno.
If the 'amar makruf nahi mungkar' showman did not so overdo his "holier-than-thou" act to begin with, detractors would not be having this fresh prong to attack him on.
LGE is left balancing the tightrope of his own Christian beliefs in private and his very public 'let's go Islamic'. He's really brought it upon himself the risk of being charged a hypocrite.

More than half of the world's population now lives in the cities . More people will live in them in future.
Foreign Policy publishes a list of the most global cities. For the 2010 ranking, Kuala Lumpur is on the list, ranked No. 48. It confirms that we are indeed in the middle income trap. Not a bad ranking, but not in the top either. A position sports people will term it as " also-run".
The criteria used is not size alone. Globalisation does mean global competitiveness and how attractive a city is to global businesses. The publisher suys this regading the criteria used:
So what makes a Global City? Not size alone, that's for sure; many of the world's largest megalopolises, such as Karachi (60), Lagos (59), and Kolkata (63), barely make the list. Instead, the index aims to measure how much sway a city has over what happens beyond its own borders — its influence on and integration with global markets, culture, and innovation. To create this year's rankings, we analyzed 65 cities with more than 1 million people across every region of the globe, using definitive sources to tally everything from a city's business activity, human capital, and information exchange to its cultural experience and political engagement. Data ranged from how many Fortune Global 500 company headquarters were in a city to the size of its capital markets and the flow of goods through its airports and ports, as well as factors such as the number of embassies, think tanks, political organizations, and museums. Taken together, a city's performance on this slate of indicators tells us how worldly — or provincial — it really is.
The seats of traditional political power aren't necessarily the most global. Only four of the top 10 cities are national capitals. Washington comes in at No. 13. Beijing (15) edges out Berlin (16), which trounces Moscow (25). Two of the top 10 global cities are laws unto themselves, operating outside the jurisdiction of a separate national government (Hong Kong and Singapore). The sun set a half-century ago on the British Empire, and yet London continues to shine at No. 2. For now.
Just a sideline. I am fortunate that even though I am not rich, I have been to the top five cities listed, and 13 out of the top 15 ( I have not been to Chicago and Sidney). Not through any sponsored trips, all from my own travels… Mind you.. No one would sponsor a free trip for someone who is attacking the policies of the government– to be audited twice ( my clinic) in 2 months is considered good treatment already; they could have given me worse trouble. To think of it, I think I have lived a fairly good life, as a small man in the street who earns a decent living through my skill. But I do not gamble, do not smoke, drink occasionally on social functions, and every penny is saved and used for the family. Much more fortunate than a lot of people, and I do donate to charity. So I need to pay back to society to at least speak out for the small people; that is the answer i give to my wife when she sometimes asks me not to risk myself in speaking out. Also, my late mum always told me to " compare with the less fortunate but do not compare with those who are wealthier than you".. That mentality has made me a very contented person..
Please also note that Bangkok is ranked higher than us using globalisation as well as GDP; Thailand is really catching up with us, and this means that Bangkok citizens actually have a higher per capita income tha KL folks..
Jakarta also ranks higher than us using GDP. I thought we are richer than the indonesians. Maybe I am really behind time. Anyone can shed some views on this?

A couple of days ago I posted UMNO made Chinese vernacular education popular. To continue my series of disproving popular socio-political myths, my new post talks about UMNO, yes, UMNO (and not others) abusing raja, agama dan bangsa.
It has also been published as a letter to Malaysiakini titled less pointedly as 'Agama, bangsa dan negara' - Umno-style.
A clarion call or a cry to rally the faithful to battle is made particularly so when a group is under siege. For years, UMNO used agama, bangsa dan negara (religion, race and nation) as the battle cry to marshal the Malays to its banner. It was UMNO's polemical postulating that no other factor could be more important than the protection of the Malay's religion, race and nation, which of course could only be assured by UMNO.
But in reality the rousing ethno-religious alarm was exploited more to hide, gloss over or excuse away the UMNO-led government's lack of accountability, poor governance, indiscretion and plain corruption, proving Samuel Johnson's warning in 1774 that false use of the term 'patriotism' would be the last refuge of the scoundrel.
Another word used in recent times by the same people with similar base intention has been 'Malay institute'. The current Facebook support of school principal Siti Inshah Mansor, despite her outrageously vocal bigotry against her pupils, is a prime example of blind defence of a Malay institute.
In this notorious incident, we witness Muhyiddin Yassin's absurd call for a committee to investigate a simple case of clear cut bigotry, so obvious it's best left to the police to resolved (as was the issue of Penang mosque sermons). Additionally, the integrity of the committee has started off tainted when it included the Education Director who had already cleared Siti Inshah of any racist polemics. So don't blame cynical us if we see it as a heel dragging tactic to avoid arriving at the truth that a seditious crime had been committed.
And it's precisely this refusal to act promptly and decisively, or to allow the police to act on it without political interference, that has given rise to the partisan speculations now raging on Facebook, only further inflaming the racist speculations. Even UMNO Youth Chief, Khairy Jamaluddin has mentioned the lack of prompt resolution as the cause of the Facebook war.
Other examples of rallying blindly to the defence of Malay institutions have been the automatic support given by some quarters to the questionable, worrying and indefensible conduct of the police force, MACC and some senior civil servants. The Chief Secretary to the cabinet was instrumental in defending the indefensible in a shameful case involving the last.
Then one day Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin made a stunning statement that required an immediate amendment to UMNO's battle cry. He declared himself a Malay first and a Malaysian only second, which effectively put paid to the relevance of the last component.
Perhaps to retain the nice ring of the tripodal mantra, the silent consent must have been to replace negara with raja. So we have seen lately, perhaps coincidentally perhaps not, a spate of UMNO accusations of lèse majesté against Pakatan-led state governments of Penang, Selangor, and once the Pakatan-ruled Perak. Even Pakatan in Johor was not even spared as the Barisan Nasional must be fearing Chua Jui Meng influencing the Chinese voters in the next election.
Raja, agama dan bangsa!
But if we carefully examine events and facts, the revelation would be that UMNO leaders, past and present, have collectively been the exclusive abuser of royalty, religion and race.
Let's examine the first, raja. One may accuse Karpal Singh of committing lèse majesté against the Perak Sultan but the DAP chairperson did not show any disrespect to the royal person. All he did was to lodge a legal suit based on a constitutional disagreement with the Sultan's action, a legitimate pursuit ironically made possible by Dr Mahathir Mohamed when he was PM.
But what about this one - on 10 December 1992, Dr Affifuddin Omar, an UMNO man from Padang Terap, no doubt given the imprimatur by his party leaders, asked in Parliament:
"How can we continue to uphold rulers who are known to be robbers, adulterers, drunkards and kaki pukul (thugs)?" [...]
"They (the rulers) must be made to realize that they do not own this country. They are not Superman but placed on their thrones by the people. "The real power did not lie with them, but with us - the representatives of the people."
Which 'non' could have said that and got away? None! Only UMNO and UMNO alone could have gotten away with its abuse of the raja whom they claim to defend today. Francis Bacon once said: "The zeal which begins with hypocrisy must conclude in treachery; at first it deceives, at last it betrays", but obviously UMNO has done it the other way around.
Then we come to agama. Let's not worry too much about corruption and un-Islamic practices over the last three decades. During the current and most holy month of Ramadan, we have already witnessed an astonishing series of lies emanating from some UMNO-linked Malay institutes. There was also a sinister attempt by a Muslim leader allied to UMNO to sell us the lie about a so-called 'new' constitution that will disadvantage the Malay community, a man already notorious for his lying ways. And not too long ago we read of wild boar heads being cast into a mosque to ferment religious conflict. They had to be wild boars because only non-Muslims could openly purchase a pig's head.
And finally on bangsa we have Dr Mahathir, a man who served as PM for more than two decades with one singular aim, to build self esteem and confidence in the Malays to be competent and competitive. His noble obsession has been like the burden of Sinbad when he had the Old Man of the Sea sitting on his shoulders.
Yet in one fell swoop he inexplicably destroyed his life's efforts, when he declared that the 'merito-crats', the 'nons', are racists. Did he realize that his in-your-face message to the 'nons' carried along with it another far more painful and devastating message?
He was essentially saying to the Malays that they weren't up to meritocracy. Was he suggesting they are inferior and cannot compete against non-Malays on a level playing field? Perhaps he has implicitly suggested they ignore the examples of Malays like Razak, Dr Ismail, Hussein Onn, Ghazali Shafie and a host of other Malay giants. I wonder whether he excluded himself.
Yes, the man who would be the Moses of the Malays, leading them from the wilderness into a new Promised Land, he who wanted to remove the psychological 'crutches' from them has changed his mind, no doubt implying to them to hang on to those props.
I am reminded of Marcus Antonius words about Brutus:
For Brutus, as you know, was Caesar's angel.
Judge, O you gods, how dearly Caesar lov'd him!
This was the most unkindest cut of all;
For when the noble Caesar saw him stab,
Ingratitude, more strong than traitors' arms,
Quite vanquish'd him: then burst his mighty heart.
Raja, agama dan bangsa? Yes, the raja had been resoundingly vilified, the tenets of agama totally and disrespectfully ignored, and the hearts of bangsa torn apart with the most unkindest cut of all - all by UMNO!

Di dalam usaha Khusrin Munawi (Pengarah JAIS) untuk melacurkan JAIS bagi kepentingan UMNO dan BArisan Nasional, beliau telah sanggup melanggar fatwa Majlis Fatwa Kebangsaan yang berbunyi:
Muzakarah Jawatankuasa Fatwa Majlis Kebangsaan Bagi Hal Ehwal Ugama Islam Malaysia Kali Ke-90 yang bersidang pada 1 Mac 2010 telah membincangkan Hukum Pelancong Bukan Islam Memasuki Masjid Dan Ruang Solat Utama Di Dalam Masjid. Muzakarah telah memutuskan bahawa pelancong bukan Islam diharuskan memasuki masjid dan ruang solat dengan syarat mendapat keizinan pihak pengurusan masjid dan perlakuan serta tingkah laku mereka tidak mencemarkan kesucian masjid dan sentiasa terkawal dan beradab. Walaubagaimanapun, perbuatan berdoa atau bertafakur oleh pelancong bukan Islam mengikut cara agama mereka dalam keadaan yang boleh menimbulkan fitnah adalah dilarang.
Khusrin Munawi dilaporkan oleh Utusan Meloya berkata:
"Orang bukan Islam adalah dilarang memasuki ruang solat kerana mereka ini dalam berkeadaan hadas besar apatah lagi berada di bahagian imam dan menyampaikan ucapan kepada umat Islam di dalamnya.
Kenyataan Khusrin Munawi jelas menunjukkan beliau melanggar Fatwa MAjlis Fatwa Kebangsaan yang mengizinkan orang bukan Islam masuk ke dalam Masjid.
Ia membuktikan Khusrin telah melacurkan JAIS untuk kepentingan politik murahan UMNO dan beliau tidak layak lagi untuk menjadi Pengarah JAIS.
