Pendatang Haram FIlipina Bakal Digunakan Untuk Memenangkan UMNO?

Pendatang Haram FIlipina Bakal Digunakan Untuk Memenangkan UMNO?


Pendatang Haram FIlipina Bakal Digunakan Untuk Memenangkan UMNO?

Posted: 21 Feb 2011 10:11 AM PST

Maklumat Tulang Besi dapat dari beberapa orang dalam UMNO, mereka mahu menggunakan taktik Sabah di Semenanjung Malaysia dalam pilihanraya ke 13 yang akan datang. Malahan, yang diberitahu kepada Tulang Besi adalah pendatang2 Filipina akan digunakan bagi memenangkan UMNO dan BN terutama untuk menawan Selangor.

Disamping itu pendatang-pendatang haram yang lain juga akan digunakan i.e. Indonesia, Myanmar, Bangla dsbnya.

Tak hairanlah bantahan PAS Ampang dilayan dengan begitu kasar oleh SPR Selangor. Bantahan tersebut adalah:

Menurut beliau, mereka tidak faham kenapa masih terdapat alamat pemilih tanpa nombor rumah, pada hal terdapat pemilih-pemilih yang cuba didaftarkan oleh Penolong Pemilih mereka tetapi telah ditolak kerana alamat tidak lengkap.

"Jadi persoalannya sekarang, siapa yang telah mendaftarkan mereka? Kami juga ingin menyatakan rasa kesal di atas sikap pegawai-pegawai SPR di pejabat mereka di Shah Alam yang bersungguh-sungguh enggan menerima bantahan-bantahan kami," katanya pada sidang akhbarnya di Pusat Khidmat PAS Pandan di Pandan Indah, di sini, hari ini.


Kita jangan lupa, penguasaan UMNO di SAbah adalah semata-mata undi dari pendatang haram Filipina. Maka, apa yang akan menghalang UMNO menggunakan taktik yang sama di Semenanjung Malaysia?

Harap sangat UMNO belajar dari kejatuhan Mubarak dan Ben Ali. Semuanya bermula apabila diktator-diktator ini menipu dan berbohong dalam pilihanraya di negara mereka.

Saya harap sangat maklumat saya dapat ni tak betul. Tapi, susah bagi kita nak percaya yang maklumat ini tiada kebenaran.

Sekian

Tulang Besi



>Mengapa SPR enggan terima bantahan
Aziz Muda

AMPANG, 21 Feb:
Pihak-pihak yang bertanggungjawab digesa menjalankan penyiasatan terperinci ke atas Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) kerana dibimbangi telah dijadikan alat oleh Barisan Nasional (BN) untuk mendapat kemenangan secara tidak bertanggungjawab dalam pilihanraya umum akan datang, terutama di Selangor.

Tindakan tersebut disyaki telah dilakukan oleh BN setelah kecewa dengan penerimaan rakyat tehadap kempen-kempen mereka di Selangor, sehingga mendorong para pemimpinnya menggunakan apa saja cara untuk mencapai matlamat mereka.

PAS Kawasan Pandan dalam gesaannya telah menemui beberapa bukti berhubung perkara itu, sehingga menyebabkan para pemimpin dan ahli-ahlinya amat tidak berpuas hati dengan senarai pemilih baru yang dipamerkan oleh SPR dari 9 hingga 15 Februari lalu.

Yang Dipertua PAS Kawasan Pandan, Iskandar A. Samad menegaskan, terdapat tiga kekeliruan berhubung perkara itu iaitu pemilih-pemilih yang didaftarkan pada alamat yang tanpa nombor rumah, pemilih-pemilih yang didaftarkan pada alamat yang tidak wujud dan pemilih yang dikenalpasti tidak wujud di alamat yang didaftarkan.

Menurut beliau, mereka tidak faham kenapa masih terdapat alamat pemilih tanpa nombor rumah, pada hal terdapat pemilih-pemilih yang cuba didaftarkan oleh Penolong Pemilih mereka tetapi telah ditolak kerana alamat tidak lengkap.

"Jadi persoalannya sekarang, siapa yang telah mendaftarkan mereka? Kami juga ingin menyatakan rasa kesal di atas sikap pegawai-pegawai SPR di pejabat mereka di Shah Alam yang bersungguh-sungguh enggan menerima bantahan-bantahan kami," katanya pada sidang akhbarnya di Pusat Khidmat PAS Pandan di Pandan Indah, di sini, hari ini.

Selain itu, beliau juga amat kesal kerana pegawai-pegawai SPR di Shah Alam bertindak kasar dan tidak profesional ketika mereka mengadakan bantahan itu baru-baru ini yang ternyata mahu menolak bantahan-bantahan itu tanpa alasan kukuh.

Beliau yang juga Adun Chempaka menegaskan, pada hal bantahan-bantahan itu dibuat mengikut peraturan dan sebelum tarikh akhir yang telah ditetapkan oleh pihak SPR sendiri.

"Sikap SPR ini seolah-olah terdapat muslihat tertentu. Kenapa SPR begitu bersungguh-sungguh hendak menolak bantahan-bantahan yang dibuat oleh kami? Apa yang SPR cuba sembunyikan?" katanya.

Hanya setelah didesak dengan keras oleh mereka sehingga menimbulkan suasana kurang baik, jelasnya, barulah SPR telah menerima bantahan-bantahan itu.

Bantahan yang dibuat oleh mereka pada hari itu, menurut beliau lagi, melibatkan 7 orang pengundi muda di kawasan Dun Chempaka dengan lima daripadanya lelaki dan dua lagi perempuan.

Antara perkara yang amat mengelirukan pada pendaftaran pengundi tersebut, ada di antaranya bernama Melayu tetapi dicatatkan tinggal di kawasan kilang Cina, pada hal di kawasan kilang itu tiada sesiapa pun yang tinggal, apatah lagi orang Melayu.

"Tidakkah pelik dengan apa yang berlaku itu? Untuk melakukan bantahan pula bukan senang. Banyak prosedur yang terpaksa diikuti, selain dikenakan bayaran RM10 untuk bantahan setiap seorang dan RM200 untuk peringkat pendengaran oleh pihak SPR," tegasnya.

Dun Chempaka mempunyai jumlah pengundi 32,000 orang. Peningkatan pengundinya sejak PRU Ke-12 lalu hingga kini agak tinggi iaitu seramai 1,600 orang dengan tujuh daripadanya termasuklah mereka yang dibantah oleh mereka pada hari itu.

FORMER MCA PRESIDENT DATUK SERI ONG TEE KEAT HAS RECENTLY BROUGHT UP AGAIN THE DVD SCANDAL INVOLVING CURRENT PARTY PRESIDENT DATUK SERI DR CHUA SOI LEK.

Dr Chua Soi Lek and woman getting ready for annal sex why was he not arrested for anal sex bloody barisan musa hassan

Chua responded by saying that there should be no quarrel during the Chinese New Year as harmony in the family is the basis for success in any undertaking.
"Love doesn't sit there like a stone, it has to be made, like bread; remade all of the time, made new." — Ursula K. LeGuin
If ever there was an emotional state that we idealize, it is love. We want nothing of its dark-belly underside, we demand that it always show only its shiniest side to us. We are, many of us, unprepared for the battles that the heart must be willing to carry on in the name of love. We more willingly dispose of the container and our promises of forever than have to sift through the stench of disappointment and hurts that are the products of love, as surely as are the moments of glorious connection.
Finding a point of balance between the opposing voices of love is in fact love's purpose and maybe even where we find it's meaning. Albert Ellis taught that, "The art of love… is largely the art of persistence." Learning how to not give up on our lovers or ourselves when we fail to reflect the goodness we see in others or have in ourselves is the first act of maturing and the foundation of what love requires of us. Celebrate the days when the picture is perfectly clear, and oh so lovely when they fall on a holiday, but don't lose heart or intention when the image is unrecognizable. Choosing love at those moments is the guts of what it means to be loved.
At our very best, we human creatures are universally imperfect. We all share some form of annoying habit, and equal measures of gifts and challenges. Although early in our courtships, our biology seduces us into believing that our beloved contains no faults. While this may be critical to the perpetuation of the species, it is misleading in the work of love. There is a strange irony in relating about how our greatest strengths become our greatest weaknesses and this unpredictable twist can often make what seemed a perfect partner become perfectly impossible.
Arriving at this juncture in our relationships makes you realize that love, in fact, is not blind. Developing the ability to hold the challenging aspects of our partners a long side the aspects we love is how we learn to see love as art. We commit to learn to see with a painter's eye, by finding the essence of what is loveable and rendering the rest as background.READ MORE Chua Soi Lek and MCA Of the Chinese Pysche,and his new Super Formula 1 UMNO-BARISAN using Sex Agenda to beat Islamic Agenda

The yucky's

Posted: 21 Feb 2011 02:24 AM PST

Dear readers, help kaytee on this.

I'm not sure whether I can continue to stand the yucky stuff on the media. I need to 'boycott' reading the muck. But my problem is there are so many yucky stuff, and for practical reasons I can't afford to avoid all of them as I still need to read the news, yucky as some may be.

So if you can help me decide which is the yuckiest, I'll avoid that one.

OK then, which of the following do you consider to be the pits:

(1) The sodomy case where each day we are cursed with yucky descriptions of peri-anal swabs, no-shit for 2 days, arse-holes, semen stains, genitals/rectal regions, oral bee-bop-a-lula, football team shagalag specimens, and other various shitty (pun not intended) stuff. Just f* spoil my appetite.

(2) The sleazy shameful sinful lies of Penang UMNO and its cohorts, those wishful wannabe (UMNO) wankers, against the current Penang Pakatan government. Most have been sheer fabrications. Don't they realize that Allah swt won't be pleased with their blatant lies for secular (political) purposes? One example has been the manufactured and instigated furore against a non-issue, a new exco portfolio to handle non-Islamic religious affairs, a portfolio exactly similar to the one the current Perak BN government had already set up.

Why don't those wishful wannabe (UMNO) wankers go over to Perak to make noise against their mate Zambry, and remain there! wakakaka.

(3) The pile of shit that's called the PKFZ corruption scandal has been fermenting, rising and stinking to high heavens since the change of MCA Transport Minister, from Ong Tee Keat to CSL's buddy, Kong Chu Ha.

After Ong had the multi-billion dollar scandal investigated, he adopted the advice of external professional bodies and implemented several reform mechanisms, such as:

(a) an internal whistle-blower policy,
(b) requirement for contract bidders to sign an integrity pact, and
(c) most importantly, the appointment of three independent directors on the PKA board to ensure its integrity and competency. The independence of these directors can be assured if the minister stays clear of their appointment, but acts on the recommendation of the Board.

There are now deep concerna that these measures may be gradually dropped off particularly on the three independent directors.

Out of the original 3 independent directors, only one is left; one left for a new appointment while another, M Rajasingam, saw his term expired in November last year. When the Board recommended that Rajasingam be re-appointed, the new Transport Minsiter inexplicably refused.

Malaysiakini reported: Transparency International Malaysia president Paul Low, who chaired the PKA ad-hoc committee on governance, said Kong's decision has defeated the purpose of having independent director, averring:

"We (the committee) defined the independent director as someone recommended by the board without influence by the minister."


Shit all around!


RCI on Teoh's death - 9 inches could possibly be 11.5 inches?

Posted: 21 Feb 2011 01:19 AM PST

In the RCI on Teoh Beng Hock's mysterious death in the Selangor MACC building while the deceased was there (supposedly) as a witness in an alleged RM2,500 corruption case against his boss, a DAP ADUN, Selangor police forensic expert Chief Inspector Mazli Jusoh testified he found no evidence that Teoh had jumped to his death.

Golly be, this naturally shifted the spotlight on a cause of possible murder, manslaughter or, at the very least, an act of God.

But today, The Malaysian Insider
reported:

Ultra-violet light showed a shoeprint on the window frame of the building where Teoh Beng Hock fell to his death, the royal commission of inquiry (RCI) heard today. DSP Sharul Othman Mansor who was part of the police forensic crime scene investigation team said he found a nine-inch shoeprint on the window frame on the 14th floor of Plaza Masalam Shah Alam.

Conducting officer Kwan Li Sa then pointed out that since the length of Teoh's shoe was 11.5 inches (based on Sharul's measurements of the court exhibit at the inquiry), that fact eliminated the shoeprint as belonging to Teoh.

But RCI chairman James Foong rejected that conclusion, chiding Kwan: "It is not your duty to prove one thing or another. It could be the shoe is slightly longer or concentrated part is shorter."

A reader of The Malaysian Insider commented that Foong, in dismissing the conducting officer's point, sounded like he was cross examining the conducting officer.

But thank god in all his infinite wisdom that we are blessed with an observant still-serving judge as chairman of the RCI. Kaytee would have said the same thing as Kwan, that a 9 inch shoeprint obviously would not have belonged to a 11 inch size shoe. It does seem the logical conclusion to arrive at. But then, I'm not a judge so what the f* do I know!


Keep up the good work EPF!

As far as I know, at 5.8% dividend for the year 2010, the board outperforms any bank. What about Temasek? Well, we will have to wait and see what kiasu will declare.

My two sen worth: whatever the statutory body is doing right please continue to do what you are doing. Kudos to EPF chairman Tan Sri Samsudin Osman! But come to think of it, we love to break records don't we? Let's push to achieve over 9% dividend for 2011 and this will break the all-time record of 8.5% for year 1983 and 1986.

Why is it I get the feeling the 13 GE won't be too far away?

MAHATIR’S REFLECTIONS ON A REVOLUTION MESSAGE TO MALAYSIAN AIM THE POLICE ARE THE REAL RULER OF MALAYSIA

Posted: 20 Feb 2011 11:12 PM PST

TO NAJIB DON'T GET 'FACEBOOK-ED.' OUT SAME SYSTEM OF CORRUPTION, NEPOTISM AND POLICE BRUTALITY IN EGYPT AND MALAYSIA LETS DO THE REVOLUTIONARY INNOVATION
Mahatir said this You don't argue with men with guns
Later on in the book, Mahathir betrays a hint of timidity with the police force.
When Plate asked whether Mahathir's control over the police, even as a powerful prime minister, was not absolute, the elder statesman agreed.
"No, not absolute. You have to learn to live with the people with guns," he said.
"But then, does that make you to some extent a hostage of the people who have guns?" asked Plate.
"To a certain extent… everybody is. You see, you have to give people the means to enforce, and then of course they are better equipped than you are. You have to accept the fact that when they tell you that certain things need to be done, you have to respect them.
"If you keep running them down – there have been instances where they were run down by the government as being incompetent, corrupt and all that – what happens then?" he asked, hinting that the police may in the end go on strike.
Mahathir wanted to abolish the ISA but the police said NO:
"I suggested scrapping of the ISA, but I depended on national security advice from the police and they said 'cannot' (because) there still are threats," he said.
BUT Hanif Omar said his duty at the time was to uphold the law and that amending or abolishing the ISA was the duty of the Parliament.
Mahathir did not want to use the ISA BUT the police made him do so.
Mahathir did not want to sign the extension of detention order BUT the police made him do so.
He wanted to shorten the detention to a year BUT the police wanted it to be extended to 2 years.
So, who was the head of government? PM or IGP?
Abdullah Badawi wanted to implement the IPCMC BUT the police said NO.
The public/Anti-ISA activists/pro-democracy activists/Bersih/Hindraf wanted to gather peacefully, a right which is guaranteed by the federal constitution, BUT the police said NO.
So, which is the highest authority of the land? Police or Federal constitution?
We need to get it right and clarified once and for all. Is Malaysia a democratic country or a police state?
Who is providing a check-and-balance on the police if they are so powerful?
Imagine Mahathir being led by the nose by the police, or so he claimed. This is a serious matter. The police image is being tarnished by Mahathir's revelation.
Or Mahathir is turning into a forgetful stand up comedian?

EGYPT'S CHIEF PROSECUTOR HAS ORDERED AN INVESTIGATION INTO THE DEATH OF KHALED SAEED, A YOUNG MAN ALLEGEDLY KILLED BY POLICE IN THE COASTAL CITY OF ALEXANDRIA.
ACTIVISTS AND FAMILY MEMBERS SAY THE 28-YEAR-OLD WAS TORTURED TO DEATH FOR POSSESSING VIDEO MATERIAL THAT IMPLICATES MEMBERS OF THE POLICE IN A DRUG DEAL.
THE ALLEGATIONS OF SAEED BEING BRUTALLY MURDERED BY POLICE TRIGGERED PROTESTS IN ALEXANDRIA AND CAIRO, THE CAPITAL.
AL JAZEERA'S RAWYA RAGEH REPORTS ON HOW POLICE BRUTALITY HAS ONCE AGAIN PUT THE COUNTRY'S EMERGENCY LAW UNDER THE SPOTLIGHT.
S
WAEL GHONIM, SYMBOLIC LEADER OF THE EGYPTIAN REVOLUTION, GAVE AN INTERVIEW TO 60 MINUTES ON SUNDAY NIGHT. HIS MESSAGE IS CLEAR AND COMPELLING. DICTATORS OF THE WORLD WHO OPPRESS THEIR PEOPLE, YOU SHOULD BE FREAKING OUT NOW. WATCH HERE:

Since 2000, at least 147 people have died in police custody (unless otherwise stated, statistics are from PDRM – released during P.Uthayakumar's ongoing sedition trial) but yet there is little accountability, transparency or any real investigations by the authorities responsible, namely the courts, the police, the Attorney General's Chambers and the hospitals which provide medical assistance or conduct post-mortems.
Despite the obvious seriousness of any death in custody, these important state institutions in most, if not all of these cases, chose to gloss, downplay, cover up, ignore or even make outrageous claims over these deaths – causing these institutions to lose credibility and public confidence.
Just look at the recent deaths of A.Kugan while in custody of the USJ police station in January 2009 and Teoh Beng Hock while in custody of the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) in Shah Alam in July 2009 which caused extraordinary public outcry, anger and fear over the conduct of enforcement agencies during interrogations, the practice of torture and the lack of clear standard operating procedures.
Some of the outrageous claims made: for A.Kugan's death – he suddenly collapsed and died while drinking water, and therefore the police are not to be blamed (Selangor police chief Khalid Abu Bakar); and Teoh Beng Hock – he committed suicide or choked himself and the officer even proceeded to demonstrate the act to the court! (MACC prosecution chief Abdul Razak Musa). How can these people continue to hold high level positions when it is clear that they are neither competent nor truthful when discharging their public duties?
Although under the Penal Code, inquest into deaths in custody is mandatory, in reality, very few inquests are conducted. The Royal Commission to Enhance the Operation and Management of the Police (May 2005) revealed that inquests were done on only 6 out of the 80 deaths in police custody in the four-year period.
Even when inquests are conducted, the whole process is extremely slow, cumbersome, often taking several years to complete, and highly unsatisfactory with the AG's Chambers officers downplaying or suppressing the evidence, the medical authorities working hand in glove with the police and the AG's Chambers and typically attributing "natural causes" and other unacceptable reasons for the cause of death. Such unholy alliance leads to "open verdicts" in many inquiries which simply meant that the cause of death was unclear and therefore no one can be held responsible.
Just look at the death of R.Gunasegaran at the Sentul police station in July 2009; no policemen were found culpable even though there were eyewitnesses to his brutal beatings. Worse still, one of the key eyewitnesses K.Selvach who bravely testified at the inquest was detained without trial on the very day the open verdict was delivered – an obvious case of police retaliation. Selvach is now being detained at the Batu Gajah rehabilitation camp.
Despite the long list of custodial deaths, very few policemen are criminally charged much less found guilty of any offence. Statistics between 2000 and February 2010 showed that 64 Malays died while in police custody, with 30 deaths among Chinese detainees, 28 Indians, 8 other races, and 14 foreigners. At least one thing you cannot accuse the police is that they practice discrimination – as all types of people die in their custody! (But probably not the rich, powerful and well connected).

Non-Muslims Back Penang Interfaith Portfolio - By Debra Chong.

Posted: 20 Feb 2011 11:06 PM PST

The national non-Muslim council has given its thumbs-up to the Penang government for setting up a new interfaith portfolio, and called on other states to follow its example in a bid to counter rising religious extremism.

The Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism (MCCBCHST) applauded Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng's initiative to form and head the new executive portfolio to handle non-Muslim religious issues in the state.

"Further, we are deeply encouraged that he has taken it upon himself to head it to give the seriousness it deserves," it said in a statement today.

Religious tensions in multicultural Malaysia have been on the rise in recent years and have led to clashes in court and on the street between Muslim and non-Muslim communities last year in disputes over religious terminology and places of worship, among others.

The MCCBCHST also urged Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak to support Penang's effort, and linked it to his rallying call to world leaders at the United Nations meeting in New York last September.

The PM, in his speech, had called on world leaders to build a "global movement of the moderates from all faiths who are committed to work together to combat and marginalise extremists who have held the world hostage with their bigotry and bias".

However, several parties — including Najib's Penang-born predecessor Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi — have reportedly dismissed the Penang initiative, saying it was not needed.

"The federal government has never marginalised anyone and as such I do not think there is need for a specific institution to look into non-Muslim affairs," national news agency Bernama had reported Abdullah as saying yesterday.

But the MCCBCHST said it hoped all state governments will emulate the positive efforts of the Penang government and reclaim the moral ground from extremists.

Lim, who is also DAP secretary-general, had announced last week that that the state government would be adopting a portfolio to look into the affairs of Buddhists, Taoists, Christians, Sikhs and Hindus.

The portfolio will be chaired by Lim himself while Deputy Chief Minister II P. Ramasamy was appointed the deputy.

Penang's interfaith portfolio is not the first to be formed as Lim himself noted, pointing to Perak's, which is headed by state executive councillor Datuk Mah Hang Soon.

Under-Siege NUJ Chief Plans New Paper - By Melissa Chi.

Posted: 20 Feb 2011 11:01 PM PST

Bracing for a possible sacking by Umno-owned Utusan Malaysia, Hata Wahari already has a Plan B in store.

The senior journalist, also president of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ), who was hauled before a domestic inquiry (DI) today, announced his new project, Utusan Rakyat.

Hata said today he had presented plans for the new newspaper to both PKR and Umno, adding that the newspaper would be non-partisan.

Hata, a journalist employed by Utusan Malaysia, has been accused of insulting Utusan's management and tarnishing Utusan's image through statements he issued to various news portals between September 21 and October 14 last year.

The NUJ president had also caused a stir when he urged the authorities to act against Utusan's editors for stoking racial sentiment in its reports.

He also blamed the drop in the national daily's sales on the editors for pushing what he called racial rhetoric.

The newspaper had suspended Hata on January 11 pending a domestic inquiry.

It had initially scheduled a domestic inquiry on January 17, but postponed it until today.

"So that's why I need to do something for press freedom. The only way is that I show to the people that this is how a newspaper should look," Hata, who is also president of the Confederation of Asean Journalists, told reporters before the domestic inquiry here.

"That is part of my job as the president of NUJ," he said.

Contrary to the report published by Utusan Malaysia yesterday, he presented the idea of the Utusan Rakyat to both PKR and Umno leaders, but had only received feedback from the opposition party.

The Utusan article claimed that PKR admitted that it has not voiced out Malay issues and now wants to publish a newspaper called Utusan Rakyat to cater to the Malay community.

The article claimed that the objective of the newspaper was to fight the influence of Utusan Malaysia among the Malays.

"Actually not just to PKR, I presented to a lot of investors about the paper concept regarding press freedom, ethical journalism. This is how newspapers should be in Malaysia. They should not be biased, we should be fair to all the parties," he said.

Hata declined to disclose who his investors were but said that they were not politicians, but supporters of press freedom.

He said he has RM1.2 million to start off with after selling his five-hectare land, admitting that it was not a large sum, but a good starting point.

"The concept is already there, the design is already there, and the licence, we've already applied from KDN (Home Ministry). Once KDN approves the newspaper, then it can be published," he said.

In the meantime, he said by the end of March the electronic version of Utusan Rakyat will be launched and made available to the public.

"See how the people react to the concept of the newspaper. So basically it's non-biased, it's not partisan," he stressed.

Hata explained that Utusan Rakyat was a compilation of ideas from his colleagues who are supportive of him and the idea.

"I just want to give the true meaning to press freedom in Malaysia and I want to give something to the people, that we should fight for you, not for the party or anything else. I wanted to announce this after the DI. I didn't know that Utusan will come out with a story. What Utusan came out with is wrong," he said.

Utusan's actions are reminiscent of its dismissal of a branch head of NUJ, Amran Ahmad, also an Utusan journalist, in September 2009.

Umno took over ownership of the Malay-language broadsheet in 1961 before which, Hata said, it was still credible and objective.
