Sebenarnya siapa yang derhaka?

Posted: 20 Jan 2011 10:23 AM PST

UMNO Selangor akhirnya bersetuju untuk hadzir didalam persidangan khas Dewan Undangan Negeri Selangor pada 24 Januari yang akan datang. Persidangan itu dipanggil untuk meminda perlembagaan Negeri Selangor untuk mengembalikan kuasa melantik 3 pegawai Tertinngi kerajaan negeri yang menjadi ahli Ex-Officio didalam Majlis Mesyuarat Kerajaan Negeri (EXCO) kepada Tuanku Sultan Selangor dengan nasihat Menteri Besar.

Jawatan yang dimaksudkan ialah Setuiausaha Kerajaan, Pegawai Kewangan Negeri dan Penasihat Undang-undang negeri. Pindaan kepada bab52 perlembagaan Selangor jika diluluskan akan mengembalikan kuasa Tuanku Sultan Selangor seperti sebelum pindaan perlembagaan 1993 semasa krisis perlembagaan yang dicetuskan oleh UMNO dahulu.

Timbalan Pengerusi UMNO Selangor, Noh Omar telah menyatakan yang semua ADUN BN telah diarah untuk menghadziri Persidangan khas itu tetapi tidak bermakna pindaan akan diluluskan. Noh berkata perkenan Tuanku Sultan untuk Dewan Undangan bersidang tidak semestinya Tuanku mahu undang-undang itu dipinda.

Noh seterusnya menuduh yang TS Khalid Ibrahim durhaka kepada Sultan kerana Khalid mahu kuasa perlantikan pegawai itu dibahagi-bahagikan dengan Tuanku Sultan. Dengan kenyataan Noh itu menunjukkan yang UMNO sedang mencari helah untuk menutup malu kerana sebenarnya UMNO tidak mahu pindaan itu diluluskan untuk memberikan kuasa itu kembali kepada Tuanku Sultan.

Apa pun alasan yang diberikan oleh UMNO, kita mesti ingat satu perkara; mahu kah atau tidak UMNO mengembalikan kuasa yang pernah dipegang oleh Tuanku Sultan dikembalikan kepada Tuanku. Jika mahu, UMNO tidak payah bercakap banyak, hanya sokong sahaja pindaan itu untuk membuktikan yang UMNO benar-benar jujur untuk melihat Tuanku mendapatkan kembali kuasa yang pernah dipegang oleh Tuanku Sultan.

Jika UMNO tidak mahu menyokong pindaan itu maka ianya membuktikan yang UMNOlah yang berdegil untuk tidak mahu memberikan Tuanku Sultan untuk berkuasa melantik 3 pegawai tertinggi kerajaan negeri itu. Itu sahaja dan tidak payah berdolak dalik dan memutar belitkan isu yang sudah jelas boleh dibaca oleh orang yang pandai membaca dan sedikit menulis.

Cuba elakkan menuduh kerajaan Selangor dengan bermacam-macam tuduhan liar kerana rakyat nampak sebab yang menyebabkan UMNO begitu kecewa dengan persidangan khas itu.

Silat yang ditunjukkan UMNO itu tidak lebih dari hanya silat pulut sahaja. Itulah sebabnya kita tidak boleh menyombong apabila kita berada diatas. Hidup ini ibarat roda: duduk diatas dan dibawah ini merupakan pusingan yang natural yang berlaku dalam kehidupan kita ini.

Kalau benar UMNO yang berucap kehulu kehilir kononnya untuk menaikkan kedaulatan Raja-Raja Melayu itu, didalam persidangan khas itulah tempat untuk membuktikan yang UMNO itu mendaulatkan Raja-Raja Melayu dan mendaulatkan Melayu keseluruhannya.

Pemimpin-pemimpin UMNO seperti Noh Omar terpaksa berbohong kehulu dan kehilir, kebukait dan kelurah untuk menutupi sikap UMNO sebenarnya tidak merasa molek jika kuasa itu dipulangkan kepada Kebawah Duli Tuanku.

Didalam isu ini kita bukan untuk menunjukkan siapa yang cekap dan siapa pula yang lembab. Isu ini bersabit dengan masa depan Melayu dan bangsa-bangsa lain untuk hidup bersama-sama dalam kehidupan yang muhibbah dan harmonis diantara satu dengan yang lain.

Kepada Satim Diman yang mengetuai parti pembangkang didalam DUN Selangor perlu memberikan arahan supaya jangan derhaka kepada Raja. ADUN-ADUN BN wajar bersama-sama memberikan penghormatan kepada Tuanku Sultan seperti yang anjurkan oleh kerajaan PR Selangor.

Berbuat baik dan hilangkanlah prasangka untuk bersama-sama mendaulatkan Tuanku Selangor seperti yang dikehendakki oleh rakyat melalui kerajaan pilhan mereka iaitu kerajaan PR. Noh mesti ingat lagi banyak bercakap lagi mudah pihak lain melihat kelemahan beliau. Jangan ditolak usul itu, kerana jika ditolak sekali gus terbukti bahawa UMNOlah yang tidak mahu perlembagaan ini dipinda.

Jadi bagaimana pula Khalid yang dituduh menderhaka kepada Tuanku Selangor? Mana lojiknya pihak yang mengusulkan kuasa itu diberikan kembali kepada Raja itu pula yang derhaka sedangkan mereka (UMNO) yang membebel kerana kecewa dengan pindaan ini mengakui mereka taat dan setia kepada Raja seperti yang dikehendakki oleh semangat Rukun Negara itu?

Kita tunggu 24 hb untuk membuktikan siapa yang derhaka dan siapa pula yang tidak derhaka. Kepada UMNO saya mengucapkan selamat bersidang dan tunjukkan bukti yang UMNO itu menghormati institusi Raja itu. Pada hari itu nanti ADUN-ADUN dari BN elok bangun pagi-pagi untuk bersiap menyokong pindaan itu. Masuklah kedalam DUN dengan senyum manis dan berjanji untuk tidak berbohong lagi. Jangan bersilat-silat lagi. Ini bukan masanya untuk menunjukkan kemahiran bersilat. Kalau kita pandai bersilat, ada orang lain yang lebih pantas dan mahir dengan silatnya.

Lidah jangan bercabang-cabang. Berfikir dahlu sebelum mengeluarkan sebarang kenyataan tentang isu ini. Kalau tidak kena cara bercakap rakyat akan naik jemu dan mual terhadap kita semua.


Thaipusam is dead in Singapore

Posted: 20 Jan 2011 08:48 AM PST

'Thaipusam and the fire walking ceremony in Singapore this year is dead. This is because the PAP government thinks that Indians here pray to demons and devils...'

I am proud to be a Malaysian. I can enjoy its well-diverse culture and heritage. We have the rights to our religions, schools, languages and believe. I swear, never did it cross my mind to be a Singaporean (or any other nations) although I enjoyed visiting relatives and friends during my school days.

Yesterday was Thaipusam in Malaysia. As usual, Batu Caves, Penang and other Hindu worship places throughout the country held similar ceremony and procession. Tourists flock it every year for its colorful and unusual event.

Even Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak was the guest of honor in Batu Caves to symbolise how Malaysians from all walks of life have recognised Thaipusam as a national event and celebration.

I feel sorry for our Hindu friends in the Republic. An article here explains everything.

'Looking at the Hindus walking down the road at midnight with no fanfare at all is like looking at zombies roaming from Serangoon Road to Tank Road...'

To our Malaysian Hindus, appreciate what we have. We may encounter some minor problems from time to time but everything can be resolved. There is no need to vent our anger by asking the Indian Government to severe all trade ties with Malaysia or things like that...


Wikileaks Needs to Fine Tune Its Media Strategy What happened to the nice Tunisia Rumsfeld told us about?

Posted: 20 Jan 2011 08:17 AM PST

WikiLeaks documents expose US foreign policy conspiracies. All cables with tags from 1 5000 [DOES NOT CONTAIN TEXT OF CABLES]WikiLeaks documents expose US foreign policy conspiracies. All cables with tags from 1 5000 [DOES NOT CONTAIN TEXT OF CABLES]
If anyone had any doubts about WikiLeaks' potential to exert profound political change, recent events in Tunisia may serve to undermine such skepticism. As the civil unrest unfolds, some will wonder what actually caused the fall of the despotic Zine El Abidine Ben Ali regime. While it would be a stretch to argue that Tunisia represents the first "WikiLeaks revolution," it's clear that some U.S. cables emanating from the American Embassy in Tunis severely tarnished the local government's reputation. The documents, which reported on embarrassing corruption plaguing the Ben Ali regime, were widely discussed amongst Tunisian bloggers and fueled long-simmering tensions within civil society. Perhaps, then, WikiLeaks represented the straw that broke the camel's back.
As he observes the volatile political scene in North Africa, Julian Assange might feel as if his wildest expectations have been superseded. Indeed, some are already discussing the possibility of unrest crossing over into neighboring countries, exerting a kind of "domino-like effect" throughout the autocratic Arab world. How many other damaging documents from U.S. embassies around the Middle East have yet to be released, and what are the ramifications? As they watch Ben-Ali flee from Tunis, many despotic leaders may worry about their fate. Progressive forces should cheer events in Tunisia, yet I would argue that on balance "cablegate" has failed to live up to its greatest potential. As it seeks to fundamentally alter power relations, WikiLeaks should take stock of the past two months or so of "cablegate" and figure out what has worked and what has, to the contrary, fallen flat. If it wants to maximize its impact, WikiLeaks might consider a) releasing documents that complement critical, breaking stories; b) prioritizing certain regions of the globe over others; c) concentrating on specific instances of U.S. government malfeasance so as to fundamentally alter the terms of Washington's foreign policy, if such illegality is demonstrated through the documents; d) releasing more politically relevant cables and saving the less important documents for later; e) reassessing its overall media strategy in the United States. I would be the last one to downplay WikiLeaks' many journalistic coups and accomplishments, Tunisia being only the most recent and noteworthy, but the fact is that cablegate has failed to prompt serious debate within the U.S. about the way in which Washington conducts its foreign policy. If it seeks to alter this equation and exert an impact where it matters most, WikiLeaks should become shrewder about what documents it releases and the actual proportion of such releases.
Inside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World's Most Dangerous WebsiteInside WikiLeaks: My Time with Julian Assange at the World's Most Dangerous Website The debate is not over whether to release all of the documents at once, which as Wikileaks correctly points out would fail to do the cables justice, but how such a staged release might work. Thus far, the whistle-blowing group has opted for a geographically diverse approach in which separate portions of the globe receive relatively equal and fair exposure. Yesterday, for example, I noticed that all of WikiLeaks' cables related to Holland whereas a mere four days ago the cables pertained to Iceland. On the positive side, such a strategy grabs the attention of diverse media outlets all over the world. The approach will appeal to WikiLeaks volunteers who are based in many different countries and who strive for greater political transparency at home. Assange, who has been criticized as overly autocratic, may have felt that such amodus operandi was desirable given the diffuse nature of his organization. I don't know how decisions are reached within WikiLeaks, but if one region was favored above all others then volunteers might have become discouraged and, needless to say, Assange can ill afford additional problems with morale at this point.

Rethinking Media Strategy for the Middle East
On the other hand, Assange's strategy thus far has lacked political focus: as soon as the media reports on one story, WikiLeaks releases another batch of documents from a different part of the globe. A more sensible approach would be to declassify relevant documents pertaining to just one or two regions, and for my money the Middle East makes the most sense. In terms of sheer urgency, Iraq and Afghanistan should be a top priority, though releasing sensitive documents from North Africa would be surely welcome right now. In hindsight, releasing the Ben Ali cables at the exact moment that the democracy movement was taking off in Tunisia was a stroke of genius, and by declassifying further sensitive documents from around the region WikiLeaks could give a leg up to nascent democracy movements. In this sense, it is more desirable for WikiLeaks to be flexible and improvise depending on the news cycle, as opposed to simply rotating the geographical focus every few days or so. For insight into cablegate, head to WikiLeaks own website. If we are going by simple numerical importance, Baghdad is second only to Ankara in terms of actual cable volume. In a bar graph, cables are organized into separate colors without further explanation, though presumably green refers to "unclassified," orange stands for "confidential" and red stands for "secret." It's difficult to make out the exact numbers on WikiLeaks' bar graph, but it appears as if the whistleblowing group holds about 7,000 cables from Baghdad, of which only 30 have been released. It would seem that Baghdad alone sent a whopping 1,000 secret cables to Washington, the greatest number recorded for any foreign U.S. embassy. The U.S. embassy in Kabul meanwhile is less prolific but still substantial with about 3,500 cables, of which only 50 have been released. What's with the long hold up here, and why have the releases slowed to a trickle? It would seem that WikiLeaks banked on the New York Times and expected that America's most influential paper would help it sift through many of the State Department's most important documents. It's understandable that WikiLeaks would turn first to the Times, one of the few outlets which actually pursues investigative journalism and sets the bar for wider media coverage. Clearly, however, that strategy has proven unsatisfactory as the Timeshasn't published many stories based on cablegate. It's anyone's guess as to why the paper failed to take advantage of WikiLeaks scoops, but I suspect that the Times simply cannot bring itself to question the underpinnings of U.S. foreign policy. Understandably, WikiLeaks wants to be scrupulous in vetting its material, but by the time all relevant cables are disclosed from Kabul, the war in Afghanistan will have claimed many more lives. Perhaps, WikiLeaks simply lacks the capacity to evaluate all of the documents in its possession. What, then, are WikiLeaks' options? One strategy would be to join forces with assorted media activists in an effort to pressure the Times to move faster. The alternative is to partner with other media outlets and foreign policy experts, from The Nation toMother Jones to The Huffington Post to Juan Cole to the National Security Archive. From there, news and analysis would flow to progressive TV and radio such as Democracy Now!or the Rachel Maddow show.
Coming to Terms With America's "Informal Empire"
In terms of sheer urgency, the Middle East takes priority over other regions of the globe. Yet, if WikiLeaks truly seeks to have an impact on the tenor of U.S. foreign policy, then it should consider devoting more time and resources to Latin America. Arguably, the region still constitutes America's "informal empire," though much of the U.S. public seems apathetic or oblivious to this fact. TV outlets haven't helped much, either: though MSNBCbriefly covered WikiLeaks revelations that Hillary Clinton requested personal information about Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner, including psychological details and medications, in general the media hasn't shown much interest in cables emanating from U.S. embassies around Latin America.
One possible reason why is that WikiLeaks, to my knowledge, has not uncovered any overt illegalities on the part of the U.S. government. Perhaps, Washington has cleaned up its act in Latin America and there is no "smoking gun" that would incriminate high level State Department officials. Given the U.S. track record in the region, however, I find this difficult to believe. What is more probable WikiLeaks that Wikileaks, for whatever reason, has simply glossed over its most damning evidence or is biding its time before releasing sensitive material.
Whatever the case, I find WikiLeaks' approach to Latin America baffling. According to its own site, the whistleblowing group holds about 3,000 cables each from U.S. embassies in Bogotá and Caracas. Yet, to date WikiLeaks has only released 28 and 27 cables, respectively, from both diplomatic posts. That is perplexing given that U.S. diplomats were concerned about Chávez's wide-ranging influence over South America's leftist "Pink Tide" (officials were even concerned about Venezuelan influence as far afield as the Falklands Islands).
Though the left would like to claim that the U.S. played a significant role in Chávez's brief ouster in April, 2002 the concrete evidence is lacking. For Assange, documenting this period should be a top priority, though to date WikiLeaks has only published certain Caracas cables from 2004 to 2010. Presumably, there would have been much correspondence between Caracas and Washington in the early years of Chávez's reign and throughout 2002-03 when political destabilization was at its highest.WHOM TO BLAME? – WikiLeaks!WHOM TO BLAME? - WikiLeaks!
WikiLeaks could focus on this period, yet instead the organization has chosen, inexplicably, to concentrate on Brazil. According to WikiLeaks, there are more cables pertaining to the U.S. embassies in Bogotá, Caracas, and even Tegucigalpa than Brasilia [to date, WikiLeaks has released 219 cables from Brasilia compared to just 2 from Tegucigalpa]. Furthermore, with the exception of early cables released by WikileWikiLeaksaks which document relations between Washington and the Brazilian Minister of Defense Nelson Jobim, the Brasilia documents don't reveal anything too earth-shattering. Shaking Up the U.S. Public
WikiLeaks needs to get its Latin America material out to the U.S. public, but so far its media strategy hasn't proven very effective. The only paper that has been consistently running stories on the region is Spain's El País, an outlet which had earlier partnered with WikiLeaks. For whatever reason, however, even El País has been tapering off in recent weeks. The Norwegian paper Aftenposten also got its hands on WikiLeaks cables, but to date editors at the publication have chosen to concentrate their resources on European documents. At one point, Aftenposten asked its readers for research suggestions, and a couple of days later looked into such conspiratorial topics as the Bilderberg society and U.F.O.'s.
The New York Times, meanwhile, only writes about Latin America when WikiLeaks cables reinforce the notion of Third World corruption. Take, for example, the case of rightist Panamanian president Ricardo Martinelli who reportedly asked the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration or DEA to help him carry out illegal wiretaps on his political foes. Last month, the Times published a story on Martinelli in which the DEA was portrayed as a somewhat beleaguered agency forced to deal with shady and unsavory characters throughout the Third World. Though the Times mentioned that Martinelli may have wanted to spy on his leftist opponents, the paper failed to contextualize the wider political backdrop which pitted a pro-corporate and pro-U.S. president against combative organized labor.
Similarly, the Times passed when it came to other important stories which have cast the United States in an unflattering light. Take, for instance, U.S. cynicism toward Bolivia andCuba, nations that have been pushing for a more radical agenda at international climate change summits. One would think that WikiLeaks cables might create a furious "climategate" scandal, yet the Times chose to ignore the matter. Furthermore, the Timesfailed to report on cables that revealed that the FBI kept tabs on the Mapuche, a Chilean indigenous group fighting for its ancestral lands and against the pro-corporate and pro-U.S. regime in Santiago. In yet another oversight, the Times ignored additional cables showing that the U.S. and Costa Rica may have shared high level intelligence in an effort to thwart Venezuela's Hugo Chávez.
To be sure, none of these revelations expose blatant illegalities, yet they reveal U.S. foreign policy as deeply immoral and crass. Is the U.S. public ready for a wholesale debate about these cables and changing the way business is done at the State Department? Recently, the Daily Show had a rather witty if somewhat cynical take on WikiLeaks. During a monologue, comedian Jon Stewart suggested that the U.S. public is already aware of previous coup d'etats in such diverse nations as Guatemala, Chile and Iran, and as a result is totally jaded (the discussion about fomenting unrest in the Third World starts at about 5:00).
For WikiLeaks, which has worked hard and taken risks, the U.S. certainly provides a dispiriting picture. Given that the New York Times is an unreliable partner, the whistleblowing group might calculate that the progressive media is more likely to run stories about the U.S. cables. Yet, even as some commentators loudly proclaim their socialist credentialsMSNBC pundits rarely provide any coverage of foreign events, preferring instead to dwell on Sarah Palin and refute whatever Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck said over the course of the afternoon.
What is it going to take for the U.S. public to sit up and pay attention to cablegate? Perhaps it will be a hard sell any way you look at it, though WikiLeaks might want to consider becoming more creative and innovative in its media strategy. Nikolas Kozloff is the author of Revolution! South America and the Rise of the New Left (Palgrave, 2008) and No Rain in the Amazon: How South America's Climate Affects the Entire Planet

Former US defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld praised Tunisia as a democracy in 2006 [Reuters]

Former US ambassador to Tunisia Robert Godec's ominous warnings in a confidential embassy cable about his nation's North African ally in 2008 and 2009 have an additional political juiciness when read against the backdrop of unfolding events in the country."Tunisia is a police state, with little freedom of expression or association, and serious human rights problems," Godec said.
And in another extract, "The problem is clear: Tunisia has been ruled by the same president for 22 years. He has no successor. And, while president Ben Ali deserves credit for continuing many of the progressive policies of president Bourguiba, he and his regime have lost touch with the Tunisian people.
"They tolerate no advice or criticism, whether domestic or international. Increasingly, they rely on the police for control and focus on preserving power. And, corruption in the inner circle is growing. Even average Tunisians are now keenly aware of it, and the chorus of complaints is rising. Tunisians intensely dislike, even hate, first lady Leila Trabelsi and her family. In private, regime opponents mock her; even those close to the government express dismay at her reported behaviour.
"Meanwhile, anger is growing at Tunisia's high unemployment and regional inequities. As a consequence, the risks to the regime's long-term stability are increasing."
Despite these warnings from the ambassador, it was never intimated that the United States would take any action against the government, not even reducing the lucrative business relationship enjoyed by the two nations.
Choosing its words carefully
Now, as the country bubbles with political fervour after that chain of events that organically emerged from the youth, although choosing its words carefully, the superpower has backed the protesters.
"The people of Tunisia have spoken," said state department official PJ Crowley. Endorsing the movement that toppled Zein El Abidine Ben Ali, Crowley said the US hopes for "a genuine transition to democracy" – of course strongly implying that there never was democracy there in the first place.
It is worth rewinding and noting some choice words that former US secretary of state Colin Powell had to say about the country when he visited in December 2003.
"Our bilateral relationship is very, very strong," said Powell. "We are great admirers of Tunisia and the progress that has been achieved under president Ben Ali's leadership."
Just says before his trip, Human Rights Watch had urged Powell in a press release to pressure the country on human rights violations.
And it was only a few months earlier, in February of that year, that he gave his famous presentation to the UN, about the rationale to invade Iraq.
After his stirring performance listing the conclusive proof of Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction, and his unquestionable ties to al-Qaeda, Powell completed the slam dunk by moving towards the conclusion of his speech with this, "My friends, this has been a long and a detailed presentation, and I thank you for your patience. But there is one more subject that I would like to touch on briefly, and it should be a subject of deep and continuing concern to this council: Saddam Hussein's violations of human rights."
'Constructive leadership'
visit to Tunisia by defence secretary Donald Rumsfeld in February 2006 proves even more revealing:
"We have a very long relationship with Tunisia," Rumsfeld remarked after the meetings.
"Tunisia is a moderate Muslim nation that has been and is today providing very constructive leadership in the world. The struggle that's taking place within that faith is a serious one, an important one. There's a very small number of violent extremists on the one side against a broad, overwhelming majority of people who are moderate."
And with regards those within the government's ruling elite that US officials called "The Family" in one of the WikiLeaks, who it was said are above the law in the country, Rumsfeld had a glowing reference, "They have demonstrated, if one looks at this successful country…the ability to create an environment that's hospitable to investment, to enterprise, and to opportunity for their people." Hardly sounds like the type of country whose people's economic desperation would lead to self-immolation.

He spoke of a "very constructive military and diplomatic co-operation" between the two nations.

"Both of our countries have been attacked by violent extremists, so we know well the stakes involved in the struggle that's being waged.
"Tunisia has long been an important voice of moderation and tolerance in this region, and has played a key role in confronting extremists not just within this country, but in the area as well."
The Associated Press news agency quoted Rumsfeld as saying Tunisia was a "democracy", but that it was moving "at different paces" on the social, economic and political levels.
All three moving at such a rapid pace now, that the geo-political trade-offs, where stability trumps democracy, despite preaching the sanctity of the latter and the policy of aligning with the best worst guys around because of the national interest, no matter how they treat their own people whose freedom you claim to champion, may be up for reassessment.
What happened to that nice democratic country that Rumsfeld and Powell told us about?

Dear Devotees,

Before I commence of my letter-writing toward. All of you, I would like to inform all of you that I am not satisfy with the lawyer, Dato YIP KUM FOOK due to his bad inspirit impressions because he sent an inspector to come to our Buddhist Temple to arrest me without any good reason, moreover, the lawyer, YIP KUM FOOK is not satisfy with Chief monk.

When the Chief monk had me to go to his Temple already and he went away and left me alone to take care until Chief monk come back to the Temple first and he also told me not to leave the Temple if any committees or the chairman want to chase me out, you don't leave the Temple at all understand? Then I said, alright? To the chief monk! On the second Day, YIP KUM FOOK came to our Temple and talk to me. He tired to make some inquiry from me and he asked me, where I come from? I told him that I came from Penang.

Then, I told to the lawyer (YIP KUM FOOK, MCA Man) that the chief monk came to Penang and fetch me and invited me to accompany him to go to his temple in K.L. I am not aware that YIP KUM FOOK is not in a good terms with the chief monk, chief monk already in this way, YIP KUM FOOK try to create trouble with me unnecessary. That is why, the lawyer want to chase me out of the Temple. Then I asked the lawyer, why you want to chase me out of the temple? Moreover, the Temple is not belonging to you, UNDERSATAND? Then, I asked him, who are you? I don't know you at all, you have no right to chase me or control me at all, UNDERSTAND? You are just like a layman only. Do you know the regulations that any the chairman or committee cannot control the monks and the Nuns at all, also UNDERSTAND?

I scolded him like that. Then the lawyer (YIP KUM FOOK) is not satisfy with me and he told me that he will called the police to come to the Temple and arrest me. I told him to go ahead and called the police to come and arrest me. I won't run away, I said to him like that. I have done nothing wrong toward you, why you want to arrest me? He said, he doesn't like me to stay here. I asked him, why? Again. After this he got very angry with me, then he phoned up to the police and the police came to the Temple and told me to leave the Temple.

I told to the inspector of the again, 1 am sorry, I won't leave the Temple because the chief monk had instructed me not to leave the Temple without his consent, UNDERSTAND? Then the inspector told me to leave, again. I told him I cannot leave the Temple because the Chief Monk hasn't come back yet. This time, the inspector got very angry with me and he took out his handcuff and try to threaten me, then I immediately show off my hands for him to lock me up but he scare, then again, the inspector told me leave the Temple again but I still don't want to leave the Temple.

Then I phoned up to the chief monk again and I told him that the inspector insisted want to arrest me, you better come back to settle the case for me. After this incident, Chief Monk came back to the Temple and take me to go to another temple and stay their. That's all about this incidents! Last of all, I would like to inform all of you, that no committees or the chairman can control all the monks and Nuns at all also UNDERSTAND? "They are higher than the King," also! So how can the laymen, the committees and the chairman to control them: – EVEN THE KING ALSO RESPECTED THE MONKS AND NUNS. Why the chairman doesn't respect the monks and nuns? They will carry the sins later on, UNDERSTAND?

Yours in Dhamma

Stupid and dangerous

Posted: 20 Jan 2011 06:01 AM PST

This is the face of a very dangerously stupid man

In today's edition of The Malausian Insider there is a very interesting story on that fler, Ridhuan Tee, the Chinese muslim who is more Malay than any Malay.  He was ranting about how Singapore will 'eat' us up if we're not careful and buy more sophisticated arms to defend ourselves. He said Singapore spent RM35.5 billion on defense. And they are such a small country. We in comparison spent only RM11.01 billion. I guess that includes those infamous submarines. Tee also claims that Penang might be in cahoots to 'makan' us since the Penang flers often send people to Singapore to "look for ideas".  But what is most funny about what Tee said was this.


He said that if the RM50billion of profits from Petronas were to be used for defence then he is certain that "in five years Malaysia will emerge as a great nation in Asia and maybe globally."

Now, what the fuck kind of reasoning is that?!

NIAMAH!!!

Tenang - Tidak berapa tenang, harap semua bertenang

Posted: 20 Jan 2011 04:42 AM PST

"BN bermasalah diPRK Tenang, betul ke?" tanya seorang sahabat saya semasa kami 3 empat orang rakan-rakan sedang minum the tarik mamak yang tidak jauh dari rumah saya. Saya kata yang saya tidak tahu kerana saya tidak pergi keTenang kerana sibuk dengan kerja lain yang perlu saya selesaikan.

Tetapi saya menjangkakan masalah memang akan timbul, kalau tidak besar sedikit-sedikit mesti timbul kerana sebab-sebab yang susah hendak dielakkan. Oleh kerana Tenang adalah kubu kuat UMNO dan BN maka ramai diantara kepimpinan diBahagian Labis berminat untuk menjadi calun didalan PRK ini. Perebutan untuk menjadi calun memang jelas kelihatan dan didengari dari awal-awal lagi.

Akhirnya semua dikalangan yang berebut itu tidak kesampaian hajat untuk menjadi calun, sebaliknya kesempatan itu diberikan kepada seorang bekas Penolong Pegawai Daerah Azhar Ibrahim untuk mewakili BN. Mereka dari pimpinan bahagian tidak diberikan kesempatan itu kerana UMNO kononya sedang mencari 'winnable candidate' seperti yang dijanjikan oleh DS Najib dalam perhimpunan agung UMNO baru-baru ini.

Tetapi adakah Azhar benar-benar seorang yang 'winnable"? Jika Azhar membuatkan barisan kepimpinan UMNO Labis terlopong-lopong bolehkah UMNO dan AJK Bahagian memberikan kerjasama yang secukupnya untuk memberikan tentangan kepada calun PAS Puan Normala Sudirman 38 tahun yang nampaknya boleh diterima dengan agak baik oleh masyarakat disitu.

Pendeknya permasalahan dikalangan UMNO diLabis memang wujud dan kelihatan permasalahan itu semakin hari semakin jelas kelihatan. Semasa pilihanraya inilah isu anak tempatan dan orang luar timbul kerana pemangku ketua bahagian Labis itu adalah dari Negeri Sembilan, sama seperti Arwah Sulaiman Taha dahulu. Memanglah Timbalan Ketua ini merasakan kecil hati kerana beliau diperguna untuk mengetuai bahagaian tetapi apabila memiih calun beliau sewenang-wenangnya diketepikan seolah-oleh beliau tidak pernah berguna kepada UMNO diLabis.

Pengundi Cina merangkumi 39 peratus dari keseluruhan pengundi diTenang tetapi masalah dalaman MCA yang melibatkan Chua Soi Lek dan anaknya yang merupakan Ahli Parlimen disitu bukan kecil masalahnya. Dikalangan ahli-ahli dan pemimpin MCA pepecahan belaku kerana Chua Soi Lek telah mengenepikan ramai pemimpin-pemimpin Cina kerana memberi peluang kepada anaknya sendiri dan ini masih menjadi buah mulut dikalangan orang-orang Cina diLabis itu. Jika tidak ada punmmasalah dikalangan orang Cina didalam MCA kecenderungan bagi orang Cina untuk mengundi parti alternatif, dalam kontek ini DAP adalah amat besar. Setiap penganalisis memberikan angka 80 peratus dari kaum Cina akan mengundi pihak pembangkang.

Usaha Najib untuk memberikan bantuan RM 5juta kepada sekolah-sekolah Cina diLabis itu dikatakan tidak akan mengalihkan minat kaum Cina kepada DAP. Kaum India pula sekarang ini masih terganggu dengan isu interlock dan segala usaha untuk memberikan penerangan jelas terhadap isu masih belum berjaya kerana ahli-ahli MIC sendiri mempunyai pendirian menentang buku interlock itu dijadikan sebagai buku teks untuk pelajar-pelajar tingkatan 5.

Dalam pilihanraya yang lalu undi untuk pembangkang yang diberikan oleh orang Melayu semakin hari semakin bertambah. Parti PAS merupakan pilihan orang Melayu yang tidak menyokong UMNO dan parti-parti dalam BN.

Jika keadaan ini benar maka adalah dikhuatiri imej Tenang sebagai kubu UMNO akan berakhir dan menjadi seperti kawasan-kawasan yang lain dinegeri-negeri yang lain.

Undi penting dalam PRK ini adalah undi-undi orang Melayu dan Cina Jika benar 80 peratus dari pengundi Cina memberikan sokongan kepada pembangkang dan 35 peratus pengundi Melayu memberikan sokongan kepada PAS maka peluang untuk parti pembangkang untuk memberikan tentangan kepada UMNO dan BN.

Walau bagaimana pun adalah terlalu awal untuk melihat keadaan yang sebenarnya kerana penamaan calun hanya akan diadakan pada 22 hb nanti. Apabila sudah selesai penamaan calun barulah mana-mana pihak akan dapat memberikan pandangan masing-masing dengan lebih hampir kepada yang sebenarnya.

Menang atau kalah bagi mana-mana pihak dalam pilihanraya ini akan mempengaruhi situasi dalam pilihanraya umum nanti. Sama-samalah kita tunggu. Bak kata perbilangan 'tidak lari gunung dikejar'.


FRIENDSHIPS THAT LAST A LIFETIME

Posted: 20 Jan 2011 03:00 AM PST

Straits Times - 19 Jan '11
I was touched reading about Chia Chwee Leong and former Singapore PM Lee Kuan Yew's 70-year friendship. They were the best of friends while studying at Raffles Institution and Raffles College, but lost contact after World War Two when LKY left for further studies in the UK. Upon his return in 1949. LKY took the trouble to get in touch with Chia and renew their friendship. For the last 40 years, he has made it a point to visit Chia on the second day of the Chinese New Year for a chat over a glass of water. That is true friendship. 


As I think of friends from the old days, I wonder how many of us can honestly say we have made attempts to keep in touch? It doesn't help either that as we age, the memory of dear old friends fades with each passing year.

"Make new friends, don't forget the old.
One is silver, the other is gold."

Remember those lines? We used to write them in our classmates' autograph books as a reminder to keep in touch after high school. Sadly, we can now recall only a few faces and even fewer names. And when we finally make contact, it is to learn that a former classmate has passed on, another is battling cancer and yet another is suffering from Alzheimer's. Fortunately, there are friends who are still hale and hearty, and enjoying their second prime of life.

As we move into our retirement years, some of us may find ourselves living alone. Our spouse may no longer be with us, and our children have long left the family nest. Good friends provide an important support system that keeps us going. They help to fill the void. They are our travelling companions, partners-in-adventure, and pillars of strength in our times of need.

Me and Kemmy on New Year's Eve - friends for more than 40 years! Our children have become firm friends as well.
Having friends is good for our mental health too. Much as I enjoy my moments of solitude, I can't imagine a life where I have only myself or my cat for company. Loneliness can slowly develop into depression over the years. And that is something I want to avoid like the plague!

The next time you get an invitation to a class reunion or a small get-together of former school buddies, don't turn it down. At our age, who can tell when we will ever get another opportunity to rekindle old friendships again. 

Here's to OLD FRIENDS everywhere.

While the world grapples with BIG issues...

Posted: 19 Jan 2011 11:10 PM PST

Malaysia is trapped with four-decades-old time-wasting and energy-sapping diversions. Who weeps for NegaraKu?

I buy the NST and The Star as part of my job is media-monitering, including of the mainstream media (MSM), much derided by the populace and declining in circulation the past decade.

TWO ITEMS in the NST WORLD scetion today page 26 headline the following:

'Young immigrants will save S'pore economy',
and Desi in saving time for his lazy, crazy and mazey readers goodled afp for its full version, whith NST rnning all but the last two paras. (Paras in press jargon means paragraphs,-- SEE how Desi pampers his Ignoramuses here/hear!:(

Singapore needs young immigrants: Lee Kuan Yew

(AFP) – 23 hours ago

SINGAPORE
— Singapore needs young immigrants to save its economy from long-term decline as a result of a falling birth rate, elder statesman Lee Kuan Yew said in remarks published Wednesday.

"At these low birth rates, we will rapidly age and shrink," the 87-year-old Lee said in comments released to the local media after the government disclosed that the city-state's birth rate fell to a record low in 2010.

"So we need young immigrants. Otherwise our economy will slow down, like the Japanese economy. We will have a less dynamic and less thriving Singapore. This is not the future for our children and grandchildren," he added.

Lee's defence of immigration came amid increasingly vocal criticism in web forums and local media directed at foreigners, who now make up more than 20 percent of the population of five million.

Most of the foreign workers and immigrants come from China, Southeast Asia and India, reflecting Singapore's own ethnic mix.

Lee stepped down as prime minister in 1990 after leading the city-state since 1959, when it gained self-rule from colonial ruler Britain, but remains a powerful figure as an adviser to his son, Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

The former leader said immigrants should be welcomed and integrated.

"The first generation will take some time to integrate, but their children will be completely Singaporean," he said.

"They will increase our population and talent pool. Singapore will be vibrant and prosperous, not declining and ageing," he added.

The resident fertility rate -- or number of babies born per woman -- dipped to 1.16 in 2010, down from the previous record low of 1.22 in 2009, Deputy Prime Minister Wong Kan Seng, who coordinates population policy, said Monday.

The rate, which has fallen as more couples choose to have just one child and more people opt to remain single, is well below the 2.1 babies per woman needed for the population to replenish itself naturally.

Singapore rolled out the welcome mat for foreign workers during the 2004-2007 economic boom.

But after the 2008 global financial crisis, the government took a fresh look following complaints from citizens that foreigners were increasingly competing for jobs, housing, medical care and even space on metro trains.

The inflow of foreign workers has slowed and full citizens were given more social and other benefits over foreigners.

Item 2 in NST with a pic of the top two leaders of the superpowers of the world, is headed:

Obama, Hu strike RM140b deals

Obama, Hu vow cooperation, strike $45 bln in deals
By Chris Buckley and Matt Spetalnick

WASHINGTON (Reuters)
- The United States and China unveiled $45 billion in export deals on Wednesday as Presidents Barack Obama and Hu Jintao sought to paper over deep rifts about trade, currencies and security.

Amid the pomp of a state visit, Obama and Hu vowed to seek common ground as they launched talks aimed at easing the strains of the past year over North Korea, economic imbalances, human rights, Taiwan, Tibet and a host of other issues.

Welcoming Hu to the White House, Obama hailed the event as a chance to demonstrate that the world's two biggest economic powers "have an enormous stake in each other's success."

"Even as our nations compete in some areas, we can cooperate in others," Obama said at the choreographed welcoming ceremony. "Let us seize these possibilities together."

The two countries used the summit to unveil a series of deals, including China's purchase of 200 Boeing aircraft. U.S. officials said the $45 billion in deals would support an estimated 235,000 American jobs.

"ENHANCE MUTUAL TRUST"

Obama wants the visit to help highlight his efforts to boost the struggling U.S. economy and cut unemployment that has been persistently above 9 percent.

Offering another tangible achievement, the United States and China plan to announce a deal to create a jointly financed security center in China.

Obama and Hu were also due to attend a meeting of U.S. and Chinese business leaders at the White House.

But in a major concern for U.S. companies and lawmakers, Beijing has so far resisted demands for faster appreciation of its currency, the yuan , that would possibly help lower China's trade surplus with the United States, which Washington puts at $270 billion.

Gently raising China's human rights record, Obama said: "History shows that societies are more harmonious, nations are successful and the world is more just when the rights and responsibilities of all nations and all people are upheld, including the universal rights of every human being."

Hu said he had come to "enhance mutual trust" and open a new chapter in relations but signaled he would bristle at any effort to push China on its currency practices, human rights and other disputes that it deems to be domestic matters.

"China and the United States must respect each other's choices in development and each other's choices in development paths and each other's core interests," Hu said.

Hu was greeted with a 21-gun salute, honor guards and the playing of both national anthems in a show meant to convey recognition of China's growing international stature.

The ceremony went off without a hitch. The last time Hu came to Washington, in 2006 during the Bush administration, the arrival ceremony was marred by heckling from a protester from the Falun Gong spiritual sect who had infiltrated the event.

But while handshakes and smiles set a positive atmosphere, the red-carpet treatment was not expected to make it any easier to achieve breakthroughs in Wednesday's talks or even narrow differences significantly.

Some in Washington and Beijing are treating the summit as a gauge of how well the two powers can work in concert as China's ambitions expand in line with its rapid economic growth.

COOPERATION AND FRICTION


U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called for more cooperation from China in dealing with North Korea's nuclear program and "provocative behavior." She also said the Obama administration was pressing Beijing "very hard to gets its entities into compliance" with U.N. sanctions on Iran.

Hu has been reluctant to give ground to U.S. demands to intensify pressure on China's ally, North Korea, to abandon its nuclear ambitions. North Korea recently caused alarm by shelling a South Korean island and claiming advances in uranium enrichment that could boost its nuclear weapons capability.

U.S. lawmakers, who will host Hu on Thursday, are impatient for results about China's economic policies. A meager outcome at the summit could raise congressional pressure on Beijing over the trade deficit and the way it manages the yuan.

A group of 84 lawmakers urged Obama in a letter on Wednesday to tell Hu that "America's patience is near an end" over China's failure to play by trade rules.

Obama wants to show he is serious about leaning on China for concessions that could boost the anemic U.S. recovery and reduce unemployment -- both seen as crucial to his chances of re-election in 2012.

Obama's challenge to China's human rights comes after critics at home accused him of being too deferential on the issue in his 2009 visit to Beijing.

Hu was likely to raise his worries about U.S. economic and security policies, including arms sales to Taiwan, the self-ruled island that China deems a breakaway province.

The arms sales to Taiwan, even at the time when cross-Strait relations are improving, is the single most important factor jeopardizing U.S.-China military ties, Major-General Yao Yunzhu, a senior military researcher, wrote in the official China Daily on Wednesday.

Beijing also wants the Obama administration's reassurances that China's big holdings of U.S. government debt are not threatened because of what some critics describe as loose U.S. fiscal policies.

DESIDERATA:


While the world moves on and mostly forward, in some cases by taking quantum leaps as defined by the above two news reports, I'm sad to observe that NegaraKu continues to waste enormouse time and resources on mind games and kindergarten kids' gallivanting things -- still spatting over azan prayers and "Interlok"; calling each other names like "pariah"; heaping scorn on others with challenges like "Don't like it here, BALIK TONG SAN (China) or BALIK INDIA!"

And the government goes after Opposition and NGO activists, and questioning Bloggers, using the Internal Security Act and other draconian legislative guns, but leaving out brazenly troube-generating and law-breaking Utusan Melayu/Malaysia and its shit-stirring columnists like Ridhuan Tee Abdullah and Awang Selamat/s weekly spaces to again yes, stir shit. Wanna cause another May 13? You purported convert as a "slave of God" does tremendous harm to Islam, a beautiful rligion oftem corrupted by human adherents who half-understand, but that's for another day/die!

Hey,Morons and Menaces, please leave the 1960s to 1980s political baggae and rhetorics behind at the National Museum, we are supposed to be in our 54th year of Independence, and not in our teenage years or kindie school of 1957-1963 OK!:(

And remember, stop quoting Hang Tuah, Hang Jebat and other "Hangs" as super Malay heroes from the Melaka Sultanate era of the 15th century, "you misguided gurus and pretender-historians and politicians" from UMNO and Utusan -- These were Chinese eunuchs sent by the then Emperor from China to serve as security guards and escorts to pretty princesses like Hang LiPoh to present as gifts to the then Sultan of Melaka in exchange for landing at the port during their trading expeditions by the Chinese traders, sailors, maybe even some pirates.


What a ridiculous idea

Posted: 19 Jan 2011 09:59 PM PST

There is a proposal to allow proxy voting in the next GE.

I am flabbergasted how this could have been proposed in a country that calls itself a democracy.

We might as well not hold any elections.

In a case of proxy voting, some sort of forms will have to be used. This is where lots of hanky panky can happen.

Who is to prevent someone to ask for a high sum of money to give his proxy form away? Maybe to the highest bidder?

Who is to prevent voters to sell their votes for 50 or even 100 ringgits per vote ?

Who is to prevent forged signatures , forged proxy forms etc etc??

Might as well assign a password to each citizen and ask them vote online..

If the above (proxy voting) does happen, then the person or party with the deepest pockets will win; policies are no more important!

And if this person or party wins, be assured that he or the elected representatives from this party would try to recoup whatever was spent and more!

The country would be stripped bare in no time!

Only a fool could have thought up such 'brilliant' idea!

[Raja Petra] Rakyat Malaysia Timur Inginkan Autonomi Daripada Kuala Lumpur

Posted: 19 Jan 2011 06:17 PM PST











Parti-parti politik dari Malaysia Barat atau Kuala Lumpur dilihat ingin bercampur tangan dalam arena politik Malaysia Timur. Rakyat Malaysia Timur ingin menentukan nasib mereka sendiri dan ahli politik dari Malaysia Barat harus memahami perkara ini.
