Sex Video: A Desperate Gamble of a Dying Regime
The Minister in the Prime Minister's Department, Dato Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz, is pushing for a Royal Commission to enquire whether the man in the sex video is Anwar Ibrahim. The Minister said earlier the three Datos who exhibited the video are whistle blowers. Certain UMNO leaders past and present also appear to have a fervent need for the public viewing of the video without regard to the sensitivities of the people, in particular the children. The Inspector General of Police Ismail Omar also took the unusual step of announcing the video is authentic while further investigations were needed to determine whether the three have committed any offence. When all these are considered, the only reasonable inference ordinary Malaysians can make is that this sex video is another smear campaign. UMNO has a fixation to paint Anwar as a sexual deviant. This has been relentlessly pursued to put an end to his political career. As a consequence, Malaysians have to bear with regular and repeated servings of sex scandals allegedly committed by Anwar. In trying to portray Anwar as being immoral and therefore unfit to lead, this sex video instead exposed the moral decay within UMNO. The release of the sex video by the trio of UMNO veterans is a desperate gamble to cling to power at all costs. Far from a coup de grace over Anwar's head, this sex video has become the death throes of a doomed UMNO regime.
The police know whether the three Datos have committed an offence by looking at Section 5(1) of the Film Censorship Act 2002. The section provides that no person shall have in his possession, circulate or exhibit any film which is obscene or is otherwise against public decency. Section 5(2) provides that anyone who contravenes Section 5(1) commits an offence and on conviction shall be liable to a fine or imprisonment or both. The trio in the media conferences admitted they exhibited the video. Anyone who has seen this video confirms it is obscene. Why is there the hesitation to act? Is it because they are from the same side?
To set up a Commission of Enquiry to determine whether Anwar is the man in the video the matter must fall within the provisions of Section 2(1) of the Commissions of Enquiry Act 1950. Section 2(1) provides that a Commission may be set up to enquire into the following:-
(a) The conduct of any Federal Officer;
(b) The conduct or management of any department of the public service;
(c) The conduct or management of any public institution; or
(d) Any other matter in the opinion of the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong is for public welfare.
A Commission can only be set up in this case if it is for public welfare. Therefore in order for Anwar's moral character to be a matter of public welfare the Government must concede he is going to be the next Prime Minister. If the future Prime Minister is to undergo such an enquiry then Anwar is right to ask for an enquiry on the present Prime Minister. Never in the history of our nation did we have a Prime Minister with so many clouds hanging over him. Applying Nazri's brand of logic for the RCI because Wan Aziza denied the man in the video is Anwar then enquiries on the Prime Minister must be conducted since he denied his involvement in those matters. This has not been done. The double standard is therefore clear for all to see.
Anwar's reply to Nazri's proposal for a Commission of Enquiry that the Government first hold enquiries on Altantuya, Port Dickson, the deaths of Teoh Beng Hock and customs assistant director, Ahmad Sarbani Mohamed, succinctly sums up the moral hypocrisy that have beset the UMNO stalwarts. Roger Malcolm Mitchell said:
"The devil decries evil
Virtue is his guide
To find the hidden villain
Listen to the loudest voice"
The loudest voice belongs to the moral hypocrite. Although they can try to convince themselves that transgressions by Anwar and opposition members must be condemned rigorously while those on their team can be overlooked, they have to convince the Malaysian public that what they have done is acceptable conduct. Double standards can never be accepted. They may be able to give to each other "self-proclaimed halos" and preach to the public "to do as I say but not as I do" but the people can see through this. Moral hypocrisy allows them to gain the benefits of appearing virtuous without incurring the costs of personal virtuous behavior. Malaysians have unfortunately until recently kept silent on this and thereby encouraged this behavior. The question for Malaysians is that even if these leaders can deceive themselves into believing they are acting for the common good in releasing the sex video, can we Malaysians deceive ourselves? For some, moral hypocrisy is a useful tool for self-delusion but for many of us it will not be enough to overcome our conscience to do unto others as we would have others do unto us. Our minds cannot justify double standards and our hearts cannot accept as right what we know is wrong. The decay in UMNO set in because they have been in power for too long. Malaysians have allowed UMNO's self-delusion to fester and it has become gangrene. Jesus told the Scribes and Pharisees who wanted to stone the adulteress that "He who has no sin cast the first stone ". One by one, they left until only Jesus and the woman were left and Jesus said "Go and sin no more". We should be grateful the UMNO veterans were not there, otherwise Jesus would have run out of stones!
UMNO having cast the stone outraged our society's dignity and insulted our intelligence. They think that once we see this grainy black and white video of a pot-bellied contortionist performing with such rigor that would be physically too demanding for an Olympian much less a sixty-four year old with a bad back, we will all rush out and vote for UMNO and BN. They have obviously not heard what Eleanor Roosevelt said:
"Great minds discuss ideas;
Modest minds discuss events
Small minds discuss persons
Sadly, they think we not only have small minds but also feeble ones that will make us vote for the corrupt, oppressive and arrogant because of what the man and the woman were doing in the video. NGO's like Suaram have condemned the sex video. Enalini Elumalai, Suram (SUARAM ~~ Correction by Desi) coordinator in a press statement urged Malaysians to reject "sexual politicking" as it is shameful and an insult to the dignity of all Malaysians. The President of the Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism ("MCCBCHST"), Reverend Dr Thomas Philips said MCCBCHST viewed the video with disgust. He said their aim in publicly humiliating our elected opposition leader of Parliament offends the sensitivities of decent people no matter what race or religion they belong to. Mohd Roslan Md Nor, the secretary general of The Malaysian Ulama Association ("PUM") in a statement said those calling for a screening of the video in Parliament are "suffering from a cancer of rubbish politics." He said the trend of trying to degrade and spread slander is not Malay Muslim culture. Moreover, it is illegal and unethical anywhere around the world. Recording, possessing and distributing the video is clearly haram. By releasing the video at the same time the Sarawak assembly was dissolved, they hoped it would help BN in the state elections. They should have released the bibles and not the video.
They forget it is issues, policies and reforms that are what we want to know and would determine the people's vote. We do not want to see a sleazy video. We want to watch a debate between Anwar and Najib on Pakatan Rakyat's Orange Book versus BN's 1 Malaysia. We want to know who has the courage of conviction to make the structural reforms so badly needed for our nation to regain its competitiveness. We want to see who has the strength of character to rebuild our education system so our children can think creatively, innovatively and stand amongst the best in the world. These are the issues that should determine our votes.
We have enough of allegations of sodomy, sexual impropriety and every other type of smear politics that can be invented to steal an election with the cooperation of a controlled media that is so derelict in their duty of responsible reporting that what they write should be labeled as black propaganda and not news. If UMNO and Barisan Nasional are to win an election on the basis of smear politics it will give the signal that this is the way to go for all future elections.
The solution lies with us, the people. When we are at the ballot boxes, we have to punish and show our disgust against those who indulge in "gutter politics'" by voting them out. We must teach them a lesson that they will not forget or we will forever be dealing with the garbage of cesspool politics.

'Datuk T not the wrongdoer'

2011/04/10
By Alang Bendahara and Rahmah Ghazali
From news@nst.com.my on yesterday's news
(REDEFINED as histry today which applies to the subject yes?:( ~~ Desi)



KUALA LUMPUR: Former PKR deputy president Dr Chandra Muzaffar lashed out against critics who targeted the men behind a sex video allegedly featuring opposition leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim with a prostitute.

Joining the fray on the sex video scandal, Chandra said it was the wrongdoer and not those who exposed the wrongdoing that should be targeted.

The former PKR deputy president said he was disappointed with some quarters whose focus had gone astray.


"It is not the individuals who expose the wrongdoing who should be our target, but the wrongdoer himself and his wrongdoing," said Chandra, who was once a staunch Anwar ally, told the New Sunday Times yesterday.

The men behind the video, the "Datuk T" (trio), have become the subject of attacks by the opposition and some parties for possession and distribution of pornography, which they said was tantamount to a criminal offence.

The trio, comprising former Malacca chief minister Tan Sri Rahim Thamby Chik, businessman Datuk Shazryl Eskay Abdullah and Per- kasa's treasurer-general Datuk Shuib Lazim, claimed responsibility for the public screening of the video to selected journalists on March 21 at Carcosa Seri Negara.


Using an analogy of corruption as an example, Chandra said people should condemn the person who committed the act rather than those who exposed the act.

"Why should we be so obsessed with those who wash dirty linen in public when actually we should be chastising those who dirty the linen in the first instance?"

Chandra, who is now a social activist and an academician, also gave his support for the establishment of a royal commission of inquiry (RCI) to determine the identity of the man in the video despite objections from Anwar's family and supporters.


He said they should have no compunctions about the establishment of the royal panel if they were convinced that Anwar had done no wrong.

However, he warned the opposition leader of serious repercussions if it was proven otherwise, "as others in similar circumstances have done".

"If, on the other hand, Anwar is prepared to come to terms with the truth, he should resign from his position as leader of the opposition and cease to be the ketua umum (de facto leader) of the opposition grouping".

He further reminded the public not to have illusions about the man named Anwar, emphasising that it was not only just the latter's alleged "sexual misdemeanours" that made him abandon the opposition ship 10 years ago.

"There were graver issues pertaining to money politics, ethnic relations and international affairs that compelled me to part company with Anwar.

"Ten years ago, when I quit (the party), I appealed to Anwar and his wife, Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail, in public to be honest to their conscience. I am still waiting."

Although there were many calls supporting the setting up of a RCI to probe the sex video clip, the Bar Council, on the other hand, went against the tide by saying that such a suggestion was "misguided".

Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Abdul Aziz said on Friday he would table a proposal to establish the royal panel to the cabinet.

In a statement issued yesterday, Bar Council president Lim Chee Wee said an RCI was only set up to enquire into matters of public importance, commonly involving public institutions, as stated under the Commissions of Enquiry Act 1950.

Freak sandstorm in Germany causes deadly motorway pile-up

Posted: 10 Apr 2011 12:28 PM PDT

… and diametrically-opposed ways to report the same phenomenon!

*Courtesy of pix from here.

Most of the news that's been fed to us by the mainstream media these days can really make one cry. Do the editors/journalists really think we are stupid? Consider the reason offered for this freak sandstorm in Germany that happened just days ago by one supposedly reputable international mainstream media – the BBC. It's so preposterous you'd really feel like wringing someone in the neck in the newsroom! Just read this … "A combination of recent dry weather, ploughing of fields and high winds was blamed for the accident." Duh, what bloody fcuk reporting is this?

Anyway, here's another report of the same phenomenon … but by an alternative media and it's been cited the reason for the freak sandstorm is … "due to these two Asteroid's shooting of 'blue beams' into our Earth's upper atmosphere that have been captured on video…." For the full truthful report, click HERE.

Notice the vast diference in reporting? Looks like someone somewhere got something to hide and is withholding the truth. Hey dudes/dudettes, the public is made up of people – not sheep! Despite the fact there are many out there who are 'sheeple' for they have allowed their brains to be dumbed down and are now in sleep mode.

The following is an extract of the baloney news from the brain-dead BBC …

Germany: Freak sandstorm causes deadly motorway pile-up

…  BBC NEWS Europe, 9 April 2011

A freak sandstorm that swept across a motorway in northern Germany caused a multiple pile-up, leaving eight people dead and dozens injured.

Sand and dirt were blown on to the four-lane A19 near Rostock, close to the Baltic Sea in Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania state, on Friday.

The pile-up involved 80 cars and three lorries, with 20 vehicles set ablaze.

A combination of recent dry weather, ploughing of fields and high winds was blamed for the accident.

So now in audie61 team mosts of us who are christians by faith and we are termed by the sms as  'anti christ agents.?? "

This is very bad harpimg on religious issue just to win votes. A check with the Council of Churches Malaysia they have denied flatly that they have rejected the governments 10 points solution on the Al-Kitab..

Hey….is someone trying to create a religious riot here in Sarawak? We as a core group in audie61 are angered that someone is using this religious issue for their own benefits and create animosity in a state where religious freedom and worship is upheld by the government of the day. Please keep religion and politics separate and if its mixed racial tension will be NEXT

Someone should make a police report on the mischeviousness and untrue sms and bring the culprit out in the open and punish him dearly for calling us in BN "anti-christ"

The BN candidate for N9 must be commended for bringing this issue up to our attention and we have forwarded it to the relevant authorities for immediate ACTIONS.

Why our Foolish Prime Minister Afraid like has Seen Shaariibuugiin Altantuyaa Ghost in Chief Minister Taib Mahmud, has Lie to the Sarwakians

Posted: 10 Apr 2011 11:22 AM PDT

Clearly sensing the people's growing disenchantment with Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud, Datuk Seri Najib Razak's first message in his campaign tonight was to reassure Sarawakians that a change in the state's leadership was imminent.
The prime minister lied to the peole of sarawak at the Kuching South City Council Indoor Stadium here and urged the people not be "worried" as Taib had already agreed to step down in due time.
Though response was relatively lukewarm throughout Najib's speech, shouts were heard from the crowd of about 1,000 people all garbed in 1 Malaysia T-shirts at the mention of Taib's impending retirement.
"Believe me, believe in me,
Najib has no balls to demand  Sarawak Chief Minister Tan Sri Abdul Taib Mahmud 'exit "You can't try to force him as he knows how to turn the tables on you, as he had done in the past. Some political hopefuls tried to force him out but in the end, they ended up in political oblivion."with his 29 Member of Parliament najib will have face altuntuya ghost Weakness is contagious.

It either consolidates around the leader, or ebbs. Those with longer plans for the future than the Prime Minister are establishing individual markers at the cost of collective cohesion
"Ladies and gentlemen, do not worry. We have made plans 

so that a change will happen in the Sarawak top leadership, a planned and organised change.

"If we make a shock change, a state of uncertainty will ensue," he said.

But the BN chairman stuck to the coalition's playbook by poking fun at PR's top leaders, pointing out that if the pact's argument to remove Taib was due to the latter's advanced years, the opposition front too had a number of aged leaders.
"If they are talking about age, they too have many old leaders. I would like to ask … (DAP adviser) Lim Kit Siang, how many years has he been in politics? Forty -two years in politics. He is not new at this, he has been around for a long time and he is 72-years-old.
"What about (PAS spiritual leader Datuk Seri) Nik Aziz (Nik Mat)? He is even older — 80-years-old. Haji Hadi (PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang) is how old?
"Even Anwar Ibrahim is old though he does not want to admit it," he said, laughing.
Najib added that Anwar was a man with many problems and such a person could not lead any government or the country

The Lying Never Ends - Pakatan's national anthem

Posted: 10 Apr 2011 11:07 AM PDT

Every time I want to type the full name of PR, I can only manage Pakatan...I cannot bear to tack on the word rakyat at the end of their name because these people are bare-faced liars and to label them as the people's alliance would be to label all Malaysians as liars

This blog had once come up against Haris Ibrahim and his set of imaginary numbers that blame the police for thousands of deaths in custody, now a Perak DAP state assemblyman is continuing in this shameful tradition of lying to the people.

This time ngakormeng plucked a number out of his ass and claimed that 1,839 people had died in the custody of the MACC in the last 10 years, which is an even higher number than the 1,805 that Haris claimed died in police custody in 10 years.

from this we know for sure that these Pakatan politicians will say anything, do anything to make people hate the current Government and more dangerous than that, they are instigating rebellion against all the necessary law and public order institutions.

Such instigation is known as treason in other countries and punishable by death.

I think it is time we visit the powers of the law that governs treason and apply it is full force against those who are bent on causing chaos and calamity.

I have said it before and I will say it again, if the Opposition has something against the police chief or the MACC commissioner then they should make their attack against the person and not the institution, this is a distinction that most matured polticians in mature democracies understand.

You see, no matter how much the democrats hated the war in Iraq and George W Bush, they never attacked the military as an institution but here we have child-politicians still wiping snot from their runny nose running down institutions of law and order and getting away with it.

I for one would be happy to see ngakormeng punished but I would rather that it doesn't cost the people too much to punish him, make it short and sweet and terminal


Sarawak Could Well See A New Pakatan State Government Being Formed After 16 April!

Posted: 10 Apr 2011 09:19 AM PDT

By the Administrator

When Parti Keadilan, DAP, or PAS contested in the 2006's Sarawak State Election and during their house-to-house visits, many slammed their doors to the campaigners, as the people were still unfamiliar with them or simply took them as strangers.

But during this round, many opened their doors widely, hoping to see change in  their rich state which have enslaved them for about 48 years since Sarawak joined the Federation of Malaysia, and their fates too!

That explained the big turn-outs of audience for Pakatan Rakyat's political gatherings, which used to be 20 to 30 people in 2006, but climaxed to more than 10,000 in Miri on the night of the nomination. Miri has been the bastion of SUPP's President George Chan, who is likely to experience now the same fate of Waterloo of Dr. Koh Tzu Koon, the Gerakan President, and his party, in the 2008 General Elections.

The situation is now turning towards the advantage of the opposition, which could well have a chance to form the next Sarawak State Government after 16 April. Certain political analysis even put foward a scenario whereby Pakatan obtaining 38 seats out of the 71-seats State Assembly of the Land of the Horn-bills.

Under such circumstances, a panicky BN has caused its leader cum Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak to decide to camp in this thundering war zone for 6 days, as if that is something that can thwart the ultimate outcome of the ailing and bleeding Taib Mahmod's administration, which is notorious for its decadent and many corrupt practices. His brother's land ownership alone was alleged to be 200 hectares. And his son's asset, according to the affidavit of his daughter-in-law who was seeking a divorce from his son, was alleged to be 200 million ringgit to which she was claiming a good half in Court.But that is so much as disclosed.

Definitely, Taib Mahmod's 30 years iron rule in Sarawak have become a big liability to BN, something which Najib Razak would like to shake off before the dissolution of the Sarawak State Assembly, if possible, but failed. As usual, the 'White Hair" Taib announced that he would make this his last term. The last time he said this was in the 2006's Sarawak Election, but he swallowed his own words after the election. People could still remember the first time when he said the same old thing was actually 15 years ago, and the same lame excuse was quoted each time – he got no choice but to stay on as he could not find any 'good' successor!

With Natives' Cultural Reserve (NCR) being plundered and exploited which have compelled the natives, including the Pendans, the Ibans, the Dayaks, the Bidayus and the Mindanaus, to be uprooted and subject to inhuman treatment without compensation, Pakatan Rakyat emerged as the people's friend and backer with many court battles being fought on their behalf which already declared victories. Time has come that the people's consciousness will determine the make-up of the next government, and that is what the BN ruling elites are now panic about.

If one believes in 'karma' or 'if there is an effect there must be a cause', what the BN is fearing now is simply too late, as the Sarawakians have been fooled by them for far too long. The new strategy of BN is to portray Najib Razak as the new hopeful, a transformation leader of sort, so as to under-play Taib Mahmud whose reputation seems to be suffering a new low now. Some even said that if BN lost its 2/3 majority or lose the state's helm, the Kuala Lumpur regime would subject certain Sarawak state leaders to MACC for a clean-up, as they will no longer be that useful to them anymore.

But the people would not buy that either, as they all belong to the same BN family, whether state or federal they are still the same, as the proverb says 'birds of the same feathers flock together'. In the final analysis, so long as the BN policy is against the people's interests, the people would have no choice but to put them on trial on the Judgement Day, and let the Sarawak history be written on a brand new page!

Arrested For Protest In KL Sentral

Posted: 10 Apr 2011 05:21 AM PDT

Eight students and three journalists were detained by The KL Sentral auxiliary police today after a press conference there at 10.30am.


As usual, right after the crowd had broken up, the police conveniently tapped them on the shoulder and informed them they were under arrest.

The students were part of the Solidariti Mahasiswa Malaysia (SMM) or Graduates Solidarity.

Their identity cards were confiscated and they were taken to the Travers police station.

We need a group effort here to send a letter or call both Police (BUKIT AMAN) and the Travers Police Station to urge them to release all the students. Write these protest letters to the government and the police to express your strongest condemnation of the arrests and the ongoing denial of rights of expression.

Dear Sir,

Re: Release students arrested and detained at Travers Police Station

We are writing to you to express our outrage and our strongest condemnation over your government's ongoing crackdown on freedom of expression.

We are appalled by your government and the police's latest actions and view this as yet another attempt by your government to intimidate Malaysian citizens, in particular, students from participating in any form of public assembly and exercising their freedom to express their views.

We demand that the students be released immediately and unconditionally. We further demand that your government stops the assault on freedom of expression.

We strongly urge you, once again, to stop bringing shame to Malaysia, a member of the United Nations Human Rights Council. We would like to remind you that freedom of expression is guaranteed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights as well as the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.

Yours sincerely,
The Public (or your own name)


Snap still the spoiler

This is from Free Malaysia Today:
Snap grasping at straws to regain momentum


KOTA KINABALU: The 'who's who' and 'who's backing whom' mind game is continuing a week before Sarawakians go to the polls.


Sarawak outcast Snap is struggling to re-establish their credentials as an independent non-Barisan Nasional-supporting party in the election after PKR, Movement for Change Sarawak (MoCS) and and the Malaysian Civil Liberties Movement (MCLM) severed ties with them.

The party has snapped up Sarawak PKR chief Baru Bian's words that Snap is "struggling due to limited resources or lack of voter support" as a godsend as an admission that they are not engaged in dubious practices as claimed.

The party is desperate to be taken seriously after being dealt a body blow by MCLM two weeks ago when the independent grouping revealed that Snap candidates and some of their 'privileged' leaders had suddenly come into significant funds that were being made available by operatives from Kuala Lumpur acting under the directions of BN.

MCLM president Haris Ibrahim explained then that they were severing all ties or relationship with Snap as the objective of the alliance was to end the plight of marginalised Sarawakians by ending Sarawak Chief Minister Taib Mahmud's 30-year reign, and to establish a pro-rakyat federal government.

A Snap supporter today said that Bian's words showed that there was no truth in the accusations that Snap is a BN tool and funded by the ruling coalition in the election.

A Snap campaigner who is struggling to get the party's message across today accused PKR, DAP and MoCS for making the allegations against the state-based Dayak party to deny them the right to be a partner within Pakatan Rakyat.

The same Sabah tactic

He accused PKR and DAP campaigners of emphasising the accusation against Snap especially in areas Snap is contesting and said it was exactly the same tactic PKR and DAP did to Sabah-based party SAPP during the Batu Sapi by-election in November last year in Sabah.

SAPP, he said, was then accused of being untrustworthy and being in cahoots with BN and of harbouring ambitions of rejoining the BN if it won.

"PKR and DAP are now using the same tactics … accusing Snap too would rejoin BN when it wins some seats," said the Snap campaigner who only wanted to be known as Stanley.

"But now even Baru Bian knows that our candidates are short of fund…God is great. He puts words in Baru's mouth to vindicate us, for if we are funded by BN as accused, surely our campaign machineries are just as well-oiled like BN's," he argued.

"There is no truth whatsoever from the very beginning of Snap receiving aid from BN and being a tool for BN. PKR and MoCS created that accusation just to satisfy their own greed to push away Snap and pave the way for them to put up their own candidates," he told FMT.

Baru had called on Snap to withdraw its candidates in constituencies where its campaign are 'not making any headway' because of lack of fund.

Three-cornered fights witk PKR

Baru had said he heard that many of the Snap candidates were struggling due to limited resources or lack of voter support.

"I heard many of them are not making any headway. If this is the case, I advise them to withdraw and throw their support to Pakatan Rakyat candidates. After all our aim is to topple this government and bring change to Sarawak," he had told FMT.

Snap is contesting in 27 Dayak-majority seats following failed negotiations with PKR, who ironically insulted the Sarawak's oldest party by "offering" it to contest in only three out of the 71 seats up for grabs.

In almost all the 27 constituencies, Snap and PKR are facing each other apart from contesting against BN, independents and Parti Cinta Malaysia candidates.

Former PKR vice president Jeffrey Kitingan and his United Borneo Front (UBF) are lending their support to the local Sarawak party which has fallen on hard times.

---------------------------------------------------------------

It still makes sense for SNAP to be a trojan horse, albeit one that BN is reluctant to associate itself with now.


SNAP's leaders probably received money from KL earlier, but they haven't passed it on to their election campaign. Why? Consider this - originally, the idea is to split the seats between PKR and SNAP. If SNAP has gotten the lion's share, then the leaders could use the money to campaign, and if SNAP wins, and BN loses badly, SNAP is their insurance to still form the government. That means SNAP has value, and BN needs to recognise SNAP's contribution and reward SNAP with governmental positions.

But PKR, MCLM and Sarawak Report saw through the crook that SNAP leaders are (in a way, this demonstrates the political acumen of Azmin Ali), and so the original plan fell apart. SNAP leaders are to be blamed because they could not convince Azmin Ali to contest less seats. Now, SNAP stands to lose everything because they don't have a cause celebre, and they are not in the BN fold. So what's the point of spending money on the campaign?

Except that now BN is desperate - they realise that there is a firestorm sweeping across Sarawak. Therefore they take a calculated risk to (no doubt begrudgingly) fund SNAP so that SNAP can effectively take away some votes from Pakatan, and hopefully, BN will still win. It's a win win situation for SNAP because it's leaders have been enriched, nevermind if the party fails to get a single seat.

All the more reason for Pakatan supporters, workers and voters to double their effort not to leave anything to chances - phantom voters, multiple voting, vote rigging, ballot box switching, obstructing voters from voting, bribes, intimidation, rigged postal votes, abuse of federal governmental machinery, money and mainstream media etc.. Pakatan needs all the help it can get. The winds of change may be blowing, but to topple the BN mast, it has to be the strongest possible hurricane.


Anwar Ibrahim: An international chameleon, but in Sarawak it is not so easy

Posted: 10 Apr 2011 04:55 AM PDT

By Sarawak Reports

Anwar Ibrahim is a man of many resources. He is also an excellent communicator.

He has spent years building an international network of friends and allies in Washington, London, Canberra and Hong Kong in political, media, and in think tank circles, and he behaves like a man who has a large team of international advisers working for him, whether he does or not.

Outside of Sarawak and outside of Malaysia, Anwar has a wonderful tool kit of messages and sound-bites that he deploys from time to time. He uses them where and when he needs them, and always with a single and overpowering opportunistic goal in mind: of trying to poison the reputation of his domestic rivals, and of trying to find a way to unseat the democratically elected Government of Malaysia and get the job of prime minister for himself, a job that he was once promised by his mentor, Tun Mahathir Mohamed, back in the 1990s (before Anwar made the mistake of trying to unseat Tun M and trying to launch a palace coup that ended up with him losing the battle).

Jangan persendakan manifesto pihak lawan.

Posted: 10 Apr 2011 09:48 AM PDT

Kempen pilihanraya Dewan Undangan Negeri Sarawak sudah sampai ke tahap panas. Sehari dua ini isu manifesto PR di jadikan isu besar sehingga Perdana Menteri dan Timbalannya mengambil isu ini sebagai isu yang tidak terlepas dari lidah mereka derngan memandang remeh dan mencemekkan usaha keras PR untuk keluar dengan manifesto yang mereka mampu melaksanakannya.

BN menganggap manifesto yang di paparkan oleh PR tidak realistik dan boleh membuat negara kita bangkrap dan sebagainya. Hanya manifesto BN sahaja yang benar-benar baik dan boleh melakukan perubahan yang membangnkan umat khususnya rakyat Sarawak yang akan mengundi pada 16 hb yang akan datang.

Pihak kita meminta orang ramai jangan percaya dengan janji PR dalam manifesto mereka kerana PR belum lagi dan tidak pernah melakukannya. Kata mereka, BN lah yang telah terbukti selama ini membangunkan rakyat dan negara dan PR tidak lagi mempunyai rekod mentadbir negara. Saya tidak berapa setuju untuk mengatakan yang PR tidak mampu melaksanakan manifesto mereka jika mereka di berikan kuasa kali ini.

PR belum diberikan peluang untuk memerintah di peringkat Persekutuan. Memanglah mereka belum dapat membuktikan keampuhan mereka untuk mentadbir. Tetapi sedikit sebanyak bukti boleh ditunjukan untuk menyatakan yang PR mampu mentadbir jika kita lihat apa yang berlaku di Pulau Pinang dan Selangor. Hanya pihak kita sahaja yang tidak mahu menerima hakikat ini kerana sebab-sebab politik.

Selama ini semua kerajaan tempatan di Pulau Pinang sentiasa mengalami defisit, tetapi sejak hampir 3 tahun PR mentadbir negeri itu kebanyakan kerajaan tempatan di negeri itu telah mengalami surplus yang agak besar. Maka nyatalah yang selama ini defisit yang di alami semasa BN memerintah P Pinang adalah kerana ketirisan pentadbirannya. Memanglah orang BN terutamanya dari UMNO tidak suka dengan komen saya ini tetapi saya bukan untuk mengampu sesiapa, tetapi saya hanya hendak mengampu kebenaran semata-mata.

Sebaliknya BN pula yang mengelabah dengan keadaan ini dan terusan bertindak tercari-cari kelemahan kerajaan negeri untuk di adakan demonstrasi di sana sini di negeri itu. Dulu kita juga yang mengatakan demonstrasi hanya di lakukan oleh pihak yang desperate. Jadi dengan tindakan demonstrasi yang di lakukan oleh UMNO dan BN di P Pinang dan Selangor itu benar-benar menampakan 'attribute' UMNO sebagai sebuah parti pembangkang yang 'desperate'.

Jika UMNO dan BN terus-terusan mengadakan demo di jalanan maka tidak hairanlah jika parti itu terus sahaja menjadi pembangkang kerana sifatnya seperti pembangkang itu ada di kalangan pimpinan dan ahli UMNO di Selangor.

Saya akan di hentam kerana pandangan ini tetapi saya lebih suka untuk bercakap apa yang sebenarnya ada di dalam pemikiran saya kerana bercakap lain dari apa yang terkandung di dalam pemikiran itu akan menjadikan kita rasa bersalah.

Saya tahu manifesto PR itu boleh dilaksanakan jika diberikan oleh rakyat untuk melakukannya. Apa yang dilakukan oleh pemimpin kita untuk memperkecilkan usaha PR rakyat itu memanglah perkara biasa kerana mereka takutkan kuasa yang ada di tangan akan jatuh kepada pihak lain jika rakyat percaya dengan manifesto PR itu. Oleh itu mereka (pemimpin BN) akan memperkecilkan segala kandungan di dalam manifesto PR itu.

Kalau kita ingat di dalam manifesto BN Sarawak di dalam pilihanraya-pilihanraya yang lalu, isu untuk membina jalan raya dan mengadakan kemudahan air dan letrik untuk semua rakyat sentiasa ada. Jika benar manifesto itu dilaksnakan dahulu masakan sesudah Taib memerintah selama 30 tahu isu membekalkan api dan air itu masih ada di dalam manifesto sekarang. Sepatutnya isu itu sudah tidak ada lagi di dalam manifesto sekarang kerana sepatutnya air dan api sudah selesai dari dahulu lagi.

Sepatutnya sekarang ini manifesto BN mengandungi isu-isu yang lebih berdaya maju, bukannya masih terkongkong dengan isu infrastuktor yang kecil-kecilan seperti api dan air serta jalan raya kampong dan sebagainya. Taib dan BNnya telah diberikan tempoh selama 30 tahun. Takkanlah air dan api masih menjadi kandungan penting di dalam manifesto BN sekarang ini.

Ini sahaja telah membuktikan yang BN juga merupakan pihak yang telah banyak tidak mengotakan janji-janji yang terkandung di dalam manifesto pilihanraya-pilihanraya yang lalu.

Tetapi banyak yang tidak ada di dalam manifesto BN telah dilaksanakan dengan begitu terang-terangan, seperti Menteri-Menteri Kabinet yang mempunyai mansion-mansion besar yang bernilai puluhan juta ringgit di Sarawak. Ketua Menterinya bergaya dengan Rolces Royce, sama dan setaraf dengan kereta yang membawa Raja-Raja Melayu. Lain yang dijanjikan di dalam manifesto lain pula yang dilakukannya.

Kita baca sahaja manifesto-manifesto parti-parti yang bertanding itu dan kita buat penilaian masing-masing. Yang penting kita mesti mengundi dengan penuh tanggung jawab dan pemilihan mestilah berpaksikan kepada menjaga politik negara dan tidak lagi ada pemimpin yang memferaidkan harta rakyat seperti yang dilakukan mereka selama ini.

Sesiapa pun boleh kita undi. Negara ini negara demokrasi. Rakyat berhak menaikkan atau menurunkan mana-mana peimpin dan parti yang mereka suka.


Kosmo berniat jahat terhadap pelaksanaan Hukum Syariah di Acheh???

Posted: 10 Apr 2011 03:17 AM PDT

Sejak dari dulu lagi saya perhatikan cara dan gaya suratkhabar tabloid ini membawa mesej dan berita yang tidak membantu mentarbiyyah ummat Islam seMalaysia.


Dari menonjolkan berita dan cerita yang mendedahkan aurat wanita yang bekerja didalam bidang hiburan seperti drama dan filem serta nyanyian, akhbar Kosmo ini teramat gemar memperdagangkan imej imej dan paparan visual yang mengetengahkan wanita wanita terbabit didalam keadaan aurat mereka terdedah pada tatapan umum.


Tajuk akhbar Kosmo semalam membuatkan saya sakit hati kerana cara akhbar ini meletakkan tajuknya!


Azab rotan cara Acheh!


Apakejadahnya cara Kosmo melapor sebegitu?


Laporan di Kosmo Online disini berbeza dengan laporan akhbar cetak.


Apa maksud editor akhbar ini meluluskan tajuk yang jelas mempersoal atau merendahkan martabat hukum Syariah di Nanggroe Acheh Darussalam, Republik Rakyat Indonesia?


Sudah terang lagi bersuluh bahawa akhbar Kosmo ini ada agenda mempertikaikan dan memperkecilkan usaha satu satunya wilayah yang diduduki umat Islam diserantau Asia ini yang mendaulatkan hukum Syariah Allahu Ta'ala!


Kita kat Malaysia ini hanya mendapat hukum Syariah yang dicairkan dan tidak menepati hukum hakam Allah yang sebenarnya.


Di Banda Acheh, baru dilaksanakan hukum sebatan yang cuma paling maksima 9 rotan sahaja keatas penzina padahal hukum sebenar Syariah menetapkan 100 kali sebatan ke atas penzina yang masih bujang dan hukum rejam sampai mati keatas mereka yang sudah berkahwin tetapi didapati bersalah berzina dengan keadaan sedar dan rela.


Aleh aleh Kosmo keluarkan tajuk akhbar seperti ini. 


Muslimkah para pengarang Kosmo atau berjiwa selaku orang orang kaffir berselindungkan label 'Islam'?


Di akhirul zaman ini, sepatutnya akhbar dan media massa yang dimiliki dan diterajui orang orang Islam berusaha membantu menerangkan tentang ketepatan hukum hakam Syariah Allahu Ta'ala untuk kebaikan dan kesejahteraan umat manusia bukannya di adudombakan akan ia.


Barangsiapa yang mempertikaikan atau memperlecehkan Syariat Allah padahal ianya mengaku beragama Islam, maka perlu muhasabah akan dirinya sendiri dan memeriksa akan intipati akidah Islam yang di anutinya?


Jika jahil atau kurang faham, maka sepatutnya bertanya pada alim ulamak yang beratus ribu masih hidup didalam negara kita bukannya semberono saja meletakkan tajuk akhbar yang jelas mempertikaikan atau menghina Ad Deen kita!


Nanggroe Acheh Darussalam di utara Sumatera adalah satu satunya wilayah yang dibawah perintah Syariat Islam. 


Saya bersama rakan rakan seperjuangan saya didalam Persatuan Peguam Muslim Malaysia berkesempatan membuat lawatan sambil belajar 3Hari 2Malam disana tahun sudah. Ada laporan saya disini dan disini juga.


Alhamdulillah, mereka sedang berusaha sedaya mungkin memartabatkan hukum Syariah Allah di dalam wilayah autonomi Acheh.


Sepatutnya kita sokong mereka ; bukan memperlecehkan pelaksanaan syariat Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala! 


Saksikan bagaimana akhbar Jakarta Globe melaporkan perkara yang sama disini. Lebih profesional dan adil gayanya.


Bawa bawalah bertaubat wahai pengarang akhbar berkenaan.


Mudah2an diwaktu akan datang tidak tersasul lagi!


Insya Allah!


Chinese Police Break Up Planned Service By Evicted Church.

Posted: 10 Apr 2011 12:52 AM PDT

Shouwang Church members have left their worship site at the Old Story Club restaurant in Beijing after the owner repeatedly requested they leave.

Hundreds of Chinese police scrambled to prevent a planned outdoor service by a "homeless" church today, shoving people into vans and buses in the latest show of the Communist Party's determination to smother dissent and protests.

The confrontation came in northwest Beijing a week after the detention of well-known artist Ai Weiwei, the most internationally prominent Chinese human rights advocate held by police during a wide security clamp down.

The Shouwang Church, a Protestant group with about 1,000 members, had urged members to gather for the outdoor service after they said official pressure forced the church out of a place of worship it had been renting.

But hundreds of police officers covered the area in the Zhongguancun commercial district, where the Shouwang Church had planned to worship, deterring any effort by church members and supporters to gather for the morning service.

The government has been alarmed about calls for protests inspired by anti-authoritarian uprisings across the Middle East, and that appears to have prompted Beijing to move against the church. Police cordoned off the broad, elevated walkway where a mobile phone text message said the service would happen.

Police and plain clothes guards took away dozens of people, although it was unclear how many were church members, supporters or bystanders. Police monitoring vans, bristling with antennae and communications dishes, stood nearby.

"I think this reflects the overall panic mood of the government leadership over what's happening in the Middle East and north Africa," said Bob Fu of the China Aid Association, a Texas-based group critical of China's controls on religion, which has monitored the Shouwang Church dispute.

One of the people taken away by police was a silver-haired man who could be seen holding up a red book, possibly a small bible or worship book. He shouted as he was pushed onto a bus being used by police. Others taken away included neatly dressed men and women in their twenties.

Police officers told one church elder the planned service would be an "illegal gathering", said Fu.

"I don't see any possibility that the government will yield to its demands, given the climate there," he said in a telephone interview. "It's reasonable to expect more clashes."

Police kept church elders and pastors in their homes to stop them trying to attend the service, and some were held in police stations, said Fu.

"Many members of the church are professionals and students, and some are human rights lawyers, which also makes the church a target," he added.

"Nothing happening"

Reuters reporters were kept away from the site of the planned service and followed by police officers, making it impossible to speak to anyone, and were then shoved away by plain clothes guards who would not say who they worked for.

"We will live up to our duty to protect stability in Beijing. There's nothing happening here," said one police officer who stopped and checked reporters.

The scene echoed past weeks when hundreds of police and guards warded off any attempts by would-be protesters to gather in a downtown shopping street in answer to an online call for a "Jasmine Revolution" inspired by uprisings in the Middle East.

Alarmed by such calls, Chinese authorities detained many dozens, if not hundreds, of dissidents, human rights activists and persistent protesters. Many remain in custody.

Ai Weiwei, an artist who has juggled an international career with a life as a rights advocate, was detained by police a week ago, and the government has since said he was suspected of "economic crimes".

His family has rejected that charge as an unfounded excuse for hitting back at Ai's outspoken criticism of the government.

Yesterday, China's government dismissed a US State Department report that said its human rights restrictions and abuses were worsening, saying it wanted no interference in what it deems internal affairs.

China has about 40 to 60 million Protestant Christians, divided between official churches, which accept state oversight, and unregistered ones, which reject such controls. Restrictions on unregistered "house" churches across China have eased in recent years, allowing them to grow and become more settled, sometimes reaching some accommodation with officials.

The Shouwang Church is one of the biggest Protestant congregations in Beijing that has expanded beyond the confines imposed by the Party.

Earlier, church members told Reuters that they did not want to become embroiled in politics and just wanted somewhere permanent to worship after years of moving from place to place when landlords came under pressure from police.

"We've been hoping for a long time to find a place to call our own, but each time there's been some opportunity, we've been forced out," said a Shouwang Church member, Cao Zhi, in an earlier interview.

A member of the church said later today that he and other members decided to pray together in small groups outdoors after it become clear police would stop the attempted service.
