Melayu Pulau Pinang Merempat Sejak Zaman BN/UMNO Lagi

Posted: 10 Oct 2010 02:53 PM PDT


Setahu saya, kaum Melayu di Pulau Pinang sudah jadi melukut di tepi gantang semenjak zaman Barisan Nasional memerintah Pulau Pinang lagi. Bukankah semenjak zaman Barisan Nasional 50 tahun sebelum ini, Melayu Pulau Pinang semakin pupus. Melayu Pulau Pinang juga terpinggir dari segi ekonomi sehingga tidak mampu bersaing dengan kaum lain. Cuba ingat, berapa banyak kedai Melayu di Pulau Pinang berbanding dengan kedai milik bangsa lain sewaktu UMNO/BN memerintah dahulu?

Bukankah ramai orang Melayu terpaksa berpindah dari Pulau Pinang dan duduk di Kulim dan Mahang sebab sudah tidak mampu duduk di Pulau? Bukankah ini berlaku sewaktu UMNO/BN memerintah Pulau Pinang?

Pokoknya Melayu merempat sewaktu UMNO/BN memerintah Pulau Pinang, bukannya sewaktu Pakatan Rakyat menjadi kerajaan.

Sekarang, UMNO menyimpan wang bantuan warga tua yang dikembalikan kepada mereka oleh pakcik2 dan makcik2 yang tertipu dengan propaganda murahan UMNO.

MAna duit2 tu semua wahai UMNO????




Umno tipu warga emas: Wang 'haram' dikutip Umno
Warta Rakyat


KUALA TERENGGANU, 10 Okt: Sehingga kini tidak ada satu sen pun wang yang dikatakan diserahkan oleh warga emas di negeri itu kepada Umno diserahkan kepada kerajaan negeri, kata Adun Permatang Pasir, Pulau Pinang Ustaz Salleh Man (gambar).

Langkah ini, bagi beliau menunjukkan Umno cuba menipu warga emas di negeri itu dengan membuat provokasi kepada mereka kononnya wang itu haram lalu di serahkan kepada Umno.

"Seperti yang diakui oleh Ketua Menteri, sehingga hari ini satu sen pun wang tersebut belum diserahkan oleh Umno kepada kerajaan negeri. Kalau wang itu haram, serahlah kepada kerajaan negeri," kata beliau dalam ceramahnya dekat Kuala Nerus malam semalam.

Salleh mendakwa, UMNO tidak sudah-sudah memainkan sentimen perkauman dan agama di Pulau Pinang agar orang Melayu bangkit menentang Kerajaan Pakatan Rakyat.

Padahal selama ini, apa yang dilakukan oleh Umno Pulau Pinang ketika bersama-sama Barisan Nasional yang dipimpin Gerakan memerintah negeri itu, soal Salleh.

"Adakah kerana menerima laba dan kemewahan mereka lupa nasib orang Melayu dan Islam, tapi bila Pakatan Rakyat memerintah mereka baru tersedar selama ini orang Melayu telah dipinggirkan," tanyanya.


Akhirnya, kata beliau, kerajaan Pakatan Rakyat dipersalahkan akibat kesilapan UMNO
selama ini.

Menurut Salleh yang juga Pesuruhjaya PAS Pulau Pinang, di bawah kepimpinan PR nasib orang Melayu mula terbela di negeri itu.

"Peruntukan sekolah agama rakyat telah disalurkan oleh kerajaan negeri, wang ehsan untuk wargamas diberikan, tabung khairat kematian dan pelbagai kemudahan lagi diberikan kerajaan Pakatan kepada rakyat," katanya.

Kejayaan Kerajaan PR ini sebenarnya melahirkan rasa cemburu dan khianat Umno, katanya.

"Mereka telah dan akan melakukan pelbagai helah dan kerja jahat untuk memburukan imej Ketua Menteri dan kerajaan PR," cerita Salleh dalam ceramahnya itu.

Another fatal accident, another bus error

Posted: 10 Oct 2010 10:13 AM PDT

The latest road accident near Batu Ampat Toll Plaza of the North-South Expressway yesterday evening, saddens me. I believe many other Malaysians are extremely shocked and appalled with it.

How could a bus ferrying dozens of passengers lost control and flipped over onto the opposite lane, bulldozing oncoming van, cars and another bus? At press time, at least 12 people died and dozens injured, some in serious condition (read Bernama).

Could it be technical or human error? If it was human error, the background of the driver, his history and medical record should be investigate. Should technical errors led to such an incident, the condition of the bus must be investigated, including its last inspection with the Puspakom.

The country has seen many major road accidents over the last few years, mostly involving heavy vehicles like buses, lorries, tankers and trailers. The common error, apart from human, is the tyres in use.

In many countries like Japan, Switzerland, Croatia, United States, Germany and Australia, the use of re-thread tube tyres are totally banned due to its instability and unsafe condition. The impact should such a tyre depletes, is beyond control.

However in Malaysia, it is still in use for its low price. A new medium-class tubeless tyre for a bus could easily costs RM800 each, compared to RM200 of a re-thread. Some new tyres are sold at RM2,000.

It is time for the government to take another look at this matter as in involves road safety. If there is a need to ban such tyres, then we should at least put a control on the price of new tyres for heavy vehicles.

To those involved in the Simpang Ampan accident, do accept my sincere sympathy and condolence.

Azmin Ali suffered under ISA law before newcomer to the party –

Posted: 10 Oct 2010 08:34 AM PDT


Some PKR leaders appear to behave more like ex-Umno/MCA/MIC politicians. But then again, that's not surprising because many of them ARE former Umno/MCA/MIC politicians! In fact, PKR is in danger of becoming BN Lite — athough there are a fair number of politicians who remain idealistic and committed to the cause. But will they be able to stand up to the culture of realpolitik now spreading across the party?
To Zaid Ibrahim: Learn the Art of Compromise and Teamwork or Don't Join a Political Party

 

by Terence Netto @www.malaysiakini.com

PKR deputy presidential aspirant Azmin Ali yesterday met head-on perceptions that have dogged him even before the launch of reformasi, the movement that gave birth to his political party.

In remarks made to some 60 officials from several PKR divisions in Johor at Permas Jaya, Azmin said he was neither sybarite nor spartan in his lifestyle.

He also said his loyalty to the party was more expansive than his critics have claimed, which was that it was Anwar-centric.

"They say I own a Ferrari," began Azmin , a smooth speaker in Bahasa and a competent one in English – he adeptly switched back and forth between the two – while campaigning for votes among divisional leaders who are apt to convey their impressions to other members who did not attend the meeting.

"If I had one I would have driven it here from Kuala Lumpur," he cracked to his audience. "And I would have come along for the ride," chimed Chua Jui Meng, PKR Johor liaison chief, to laughter from attendees."People saw a friend's Ferrari at my house one day and concluded I owned one," offered Azmin about the origins of stories of his hedonistic tastes.

Azmin used that entrée to the topic of his sybaritic friends to tackle the perception he had gained from their deep pockets, that as gatekeeper for Anwar Ibrahim when the latter was finance minister, he had leveraged on their largesse.

"Once they cut a cake on my birthday while we were on a flight and there was a bag with half a million Ringgit in it. I told Datuk Seri Anwar that the money should be given back to wherever it came from," said Azmin, warming to his theme that he was the target of malicious stories.

Eyes glistening with emotion, he said stories circulated about him and his family had reached a point where his wife Shamshida Taharin's fidelity was questioned and he had to send their daughter for a DNA test to ascertain paternity.

"The test confirmed I was her father," said Azmin , giving his listeners the impression that in his political career he had endured fortune's slings and arrows to an immoderate degree. "I have gone through the mill," asserted Azmin, who alluded to the attacks on his private property, and instances of repression by the powers-that-be that included near-detention under the ISA, and the stories of his supposed wealth and of its dubious origins.

"But through it all, I have stayed loyal to the cause. I have never wavered and true members of PKR have seen that my ordeal could not have been borne if it was limited to individuals and not the party's ideals," he said to rousing applause.

Still, Azmin acknowledged the need to defend party supremo Anwar Ibrahim against the looming possibility of another round of imprisonment over sodomy charges. "After the party elections are over, my focus will be to defend Anwar against the threat of imprisonment. We contest each other now and then we reunite to defend him against unjust jailing," he said.

Shifting his sights to internal targets, Azmin said PKR stalwarts had suffered unjust detention under the ISAlong before"I nearly suffered under that law and several of my compatriots have felt the full brunt of it,– he declined to be more specific – had resigned their government posts to register their protest and join other parties.

"I nearly suffered under that law and several of my compatriots have felt the full brunt of it, so we don't need anybody to wear opposition to the law as a badge for promotion up the PKR hierarchy. "Why should we bargain for a situation where we bear the scars and other get to enjoy the stripes?" asserted Azmin to emphatic applause.

Finally, Azmin assured his listeners that after the party elections, a seminar would be held in Johor where all elected PKR MPs, assemblypersons and other leaders would attend to devise strategy for the party to do well in the next general election.

Later, Chua would take up this theme in his brief speech, giving a satiric twist to the Malay word for bastion ('kubu UMNO') such that it was rendered as burial ('kubur UMNO') grounds.

At the end of the two-hour plus meeting, Azmin mingled with obviously impressed divisional leaders before hurrying off to Kulai for another support- garnering function.

Sabah Or Malaysia

Posted: 10 Oct 2010 08:33 AM PDT

Some dude by the name of Aricco Jumitih represented the country in the Commonwealth Games in New Delhi.

He took the gold medal for the 62 kg weightlifting event.

But he was seen wearing a vest bearing the flag of his home state Sabah, instead of the Jalur Gemilang usually worn by national athletes participating in international events.


That has irked some of the bigwigs.

The irony is they barely give two hoots about East Malaysia, except to exploit them politically and economically.

Even when they actually do the nation proud, they get their asses stomped on.

You just can't win sometimes.

Different stand does not mean disloyalty, says Dr Chua

Posted: 10 Oct 2010 07:08 AM PDT


KUALA LUMPUR: Any stand that MCA takes which differs from Umno should not be construed as being disloyal to Barisan Nasional.

"However, we are not blind followers, we will continue to articulate the hopes, fears, expectations and frustrations of the various communities in Malaysia," said party president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek at the opening of the MCA 57th annual general meeting at Wisma MCA here on Sunday.

"As such, there will be occasions when MCA will take a different stand from Umno."

Dr Chua said MCA had only one agenda, which was to make Barisan the "party" of choice by the people.

Dr Chua said MCA must be sensitive to the needs and aspirations of the people; and the party would continue to be their voice in the Government and have a role to play in the Government.

The party, he added, would continue to stay relevant to issues, and would be more high-profiled in its bid to push forward its agenda in resolving the various issues confronting the people.

Expressing his concern over certain quarters from both sides of the political divide playing up racial and religious issues of late, Dr Chua said the party strongly condemned such action.

He appealed to all politicians concerned to reject those who thrived on racialism.

Dr Chua said he was confident that the people would continue to support Barisan under Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak's leadership if the coalition took the middle path and embraced all races.

He was confident that the voices of extremism, regardless of any race or religion, would become a minority under the policy of inclusiveness under the 1Malaysia concept.

Meanwhile, Dr Chua said the youngsters in particular would not want to be told to be grateful that their parents were accorded citizenship, or worse still, be referred to as pendatang.

Dr Chua said about four million Malaysians over the age of 21 had yet to register as voters, and they played a crucial role in deciding the next Federal Government.

THE STAR (Sunday October 10, 2010)


Najib Tun Razak ~ Does he still stand a chance of being the PM in the next GE?

Posted: 10 Oct 2010 08:01 AM PDT



Sometimes, the success or failure of a political leader doesn't just depend on his personal achievements or strength of character. It also concerns the way those closest to him behave or carry about their lives which in one way or another reflects back on him?


Many Malaysians do not like the idea of the said presence of a 'backseat driver' directing the way as in the case concerning the leadership of the incumbent Barisan Nasional Chairman, Dato Seri Mohd Najib Tun Abdul Razak?


It may be true or just political hearsay but from my own personal viewpoint, I'd rather like to see the current Malaysian Prime Minister be free from such unnecessary political baggage as in all the innuendos that relates to his spouse being the said liability to his political journey's success or demise as this nation's topmost government leader?


Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor has long been the favorite subject of anti BN political cartoonist Zunar where he often rightfully lambasts her heavy presence at any event or occasion where the PM attends!
I sensed this overbearing presence of Rosmah Mansor personally when I attended a dinner hosted by YBK at the Sime Darby Convention Center recently. She was sort of holding center stage and the way she was being pandered to by both her PM husband and the YBK hosts was very evident.



That's not good for the political health of Najib Tun Razak. All notable political figures of the world succeeded in their careers when their wives didn't upstage them in the presence of the media.


Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad ruled successfully for 22 years because his wife Tun Dr Siti Hasmah knew best not to steal his limelight so to speak. So did Singapore's Mentor Minister Lee Kuan Yew's wife all throughout his exemplary political career. None of our nation's former premiers wives sought glam and glamor as what the current PM's wife is doing?


Hence, I feel that Najib's chances of retaining his position as the BN's Chairman in the 13th General Election can be quite slim if Rosmah Mansor continues to upstage him in the political scene despite her not being in politics herself!


Najib has also sort of shot himself in the foot today by siding with DAP's 'cross my dead body' spouting Chairman Maharaj Karpal Ram Singh Jai Ho with regard to being against the idea of setting up an Islamic State here in Malaysia.


Looks like Muslims in Malaysia are practically caught between the proverbial 'Devil and the Deep Blue Sea' as far as dreaming of an Islamic nation set up here in obviously secularly inclined Malaysia?


The BN's Chairman has openly stated that he is with Karpal on this and PAS's Nik Aziz doesn't seem as firm as he used to be with implementing the Syariah Code over there in the Sultanate of Kelantan where he has been the Chief Minister for over 20 years now.


PKR's De Facto Chief has also openly stated that there is no agenda in his party to uphold Allah's Hudud Laws if he gets to be the next PM.


So, where does that leave us all?


To our own choices of at least getting to live as Muslims within our households and to watch over our immediate loved ones in the family.


O Muslims of Malaysia! This is what we get when we adopt a wait and see attitude as far as deciding as to who shall lead us into the Yaum al Akhirat?


Exactly as prophesied by Rasul Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam : 


Abu Musa Ash`ari Radhiallahu Anhu narrates that the Messenger of Allah, Rasulullah Muhammad Sallalahu Alaihi Wassallam said, " Qiyamah will come....

2. `When untrustworthy people will be regarded as trustworthy and the trustworthy will be regarded as untrustworthy.



This is the reason why we who are Muslims in this country ought to choose only true Muslims to lead us in government and not to fall victims to all these shysters who don 'Islamic looking garb' and put up a show of being the righteous and pious when in reality they are amongst those who are termed as 'dayooth' for not having it in them to even order their wife to cover their modesty and yet have the gall to be our so called leaders?


I strongly look forward to the resurrection of the Islamic Khilafah in order to be rid of these sellouts of Islam in the near future.


101010 “Najib Quashes the Word Pendatang”

Posted: 10 Oct 2010 05:46 AM PDT

Don't tell me you don't agree now.? The PM Najib is quoted here to say this, Read for yourself. It's not made up mind you,Najib said"I don't agree with the term pendatang (immigrants)," he said in reference to the popular derogatory term used to describe the Chinese community.

"Yes, you came here at one time, but that was three, four, five generations ago. Now, you are all loyal citizens of the country," he said to a loud applause.

ACTUAL AUSTRALIAN COURT DOCKET 12659 ---CASE OF THE PREGNANT LADY


A lady about 8 months pregnant got on a bus. She noticed the man opposite her was smiling at her. She immediately moved to another seat.. This time the smile turned into a grin, so she moved again. The man seemed more amused. When on the fourth move, the man burst out laughing, she complained to the driver and he had the man arrested.

The case came up in court.

The judge asked the man (about 20 years old) what he had to say for himself.

The man replied, 'Well your Honor, it was like this, when the lady got on the bus, I couldn't help but notice her condition. She sat down under a sign that said, 'The Double Mint Twins are coming' and I grinned. Then she moved and sat under a sign that said, ' Logan's Liniment will reduce the swelling,' and I had to smile. Then she placed herself under a deodorant sign that said, 'William's Big Stick Did the Trick,' and I could hardly contain myself. But, Your Honor, when She moved the fourth time and sat under a sign that said, 'Goodyear Rubber could have prevented this Accident'.... I just lost it.'

Here’s a cangkul, MCA

Posted: 10 Oct 2010 02:47 AM PDT


Courtesy of Hartal MSM

The Chinese party's paper Star today carried these reports, 'MCA Youth: Punish those who make racist remarks' and 'Draw clear line on extremism'.

The MCA Youth wing in its resolution passed at the party AGM wants the government to disassociate itself from organisations such as Perkasa.

Yet Youth chief Wee Ka Siong in his speech — according to the press reports — failed to finger who the "extremists" and "extremist organizations" are.

Insider gives a stinging headline — whether intended to be ironic or not — to the story, i.e. 'Be clear on extremist groups, MCA Youth tells BN'. In other words, here is Wee saying "be clear" on the escalation of racism on the one hand, while at the same time, he's too chicken to even name names.

MCA Youth wants "immediate action" taken to punish civil servants who make racist remarks. Let's wait and see when 'immediate' will come, or if it's to be like the 'tomorrow that never comes'.

Wee also urged the BN central leadership to punish those who call for the abolishment of vernacular schools. He makes a reference to 1978 when "Sabah MP Mark Koding called for the closure of Chinese primary schools in Parliament. He was found guilty of sedition later".

He wants "the BN central leadership to punish"? How, when the DPM-cum-Education Minister cannot, it seems, punish two school principals? Wee is asking for the moon.

There was apparently a recent call by the Malays Consultative Council, a group that includes Perkasa, to do away with vernacular schools.

Not too long ago, Wee wanted the Satu Sekolah Untuk Semua movement charged under sedition for the same reason. It didn't take but a jiffy then for him to chicken out and drop the case like a hot potato.

Now in this MCA annual get-together, singing to the choir, Wee raises the issue again. We (no pun intended) don't think the MCA drum-beating will go anywhere.

The funny thing, alternatively, does DAP have the courage to defend Chinese schools? It doesn't seem to be on the DAP radar either. They're too busy out-Islamizing PAS.

Admin Note:

It also appears to be in the radar of the Umno zealots to Talibanize Christian Mission Schools. The Education Ministry now requires that Schools under the DG53Category must have a DG53 teacher as the Principal. Anyone wanting to be a Principal must be of DG48. The individual then must be prepared to serve as Principal to any school in Malaysia that is under the DG53 Category before he or she can be posted back to his or her former school as a DG53 Principal.

The problem here is premier Christian Mission Schools like St. Xaviers' Institution in Penang is at risk if the current Principal is transferred out to another school. The La Salle Christian Brothers will not be able to find a replacement Principal who is under the DG53 Category. Hence, the Umno controlled Education Ministry will force the La Salle Christian Brothers to accept a Principal appointed by the Education Ministry who would not understand nor appreciate the ethos and culture of the La Salle Mission. St. Xaviers' Institution will probably be Talibanized with a Muslim zealot as Principal as would go on to Remove all Christian symbols from the school and would also shut down the Chapel and also change the School Song as well. This has happened to Convent Pulau Tikus in Penang. Penang Free School is another example of Talibanization. Xavierians need to do something as the La Salle Brothers are at sea over this.

Pilihanraya Kecil Batu Sapi : PKR Akan Bertanding Wakili PR

Posted: 09 Oct 2010 08:42 PM PDT


Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) akan menurunkan calonnya mewakili Pakatan Rakyat (PR) jika Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) memanggil pilihan raya kecil bagi kerusi Parlimen Batu Sapi di Sabah meskipun tiada wakil diletakkan dua tahun lalu...

The Malaysian Insider

KUALA LUMPUR, 10 Okt — Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) akan menurunkan calonnya mewakili Pakatan Rakyat (PR) jika Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) memanggil pilihan raya kecil bagi kerusi Parlimen Batu Sapi di Sabah meskipun tiada wakil diletakkan dua tahun lalu.

Pilihan raya kecil bagi mengisi kekosongan Batu Sapi yang mempunyai 26,000 pengundi, yang terletak di sebelah timur Sabah, merupakan pilihan raya kecil yang ke-13 sejak 8 Mac 2008.

PR hanya memenangi satu daripada 25 kerusi Parlimen ditandingkan di Sabah pada 2008.

Pengarah Pilihan Raya PKR, Fuziah Salleh berkata, berdasarkan persetujuan PR kerusi itu diperuntukkan kepada parti itu tetapi tidak dapat meletakkan calon kerana sebab-sebab tertentu.

"Memang ia kerusi PKR, diperuntukkan kepada kami tetapi calon tidak dapat diletakkan.

"Oleh itu, PKR akan membuat persiapan untuk bertanding di Batu Sapi (apabila diadakan pilihan raya kecil nanti)," kata beliau kepada The Malaysian Insider.

Fuziah yang juga Ahli Parlimen Kuantan berkata, PR Sabah yang dijadual bermesyuarat hari ini dijangka menyentuh isu berkenaan.

"Kami sudah memberi fokus mengenai soal persediaan, dan mesyuarat Pakatan Sabah esok (hari ini) akan membincangkan persiapan," katanya lagi.

Perkara tersebut juga dijangka akan disentuh pada mesyuarat PR pusat Rabu ini.

"Soal siapa yang akan bertanding, kami akan membincangkan dalam mesyuarat Pakatan Rabu ini," kata Naib Presiden PAS Datuk Mahfuz Omar ketika dihubungi.

SPR akan mengadakan mesyuarat khas sebaik sahaja menerima notis kekosongan daripada Speaker Dewan Rakyat.

Kerusi itu kosong ekoran kematian Ahli Parlimen Datuk Ir Edmund Chong Ket Wah (kiri) akibat kemalangan jalan raya semalam.

Chong, 54, yang juga Bendahari Agung Parti Bersatu Sabah, meninggal dunia apabila motosikal yang ditunggangnya berlanggar dengan sebuah kereta di Jalan Sembulan-Tanjung Aru.

Chua: Loyal members the biggest assets

Posted: 09 Oct 2010 06:32 PM PDT


KUALA LUMPUR: Loyal MCA members are the party's biggest assets, said president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.

He added that 97% of its members were loyal to the party – a figure which was much higher than any of the Opposition parties.

"After the 2008 general election, the party is still very stable, and as long as we have a clear direction, our members are still hopeful of our future," he said.

However, he also warned those who claimed that they loved the party but only to join the Opposition.

"We do not want members like this. We will say to them, 'thank you very much' and they can leave the party," he said.

Dr Chua also urged central delegates to participate actively in the one-day AGM today as it would be the first assembly after the party's election in March.

"This will be a very meaningful AGM for us and we hope all the delegates can stay until the end of the event," he added.
