Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu - US President Barack Obama Pow Wow

Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu - US President Barack Obama Pow Wow


Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu - US President Barack Obama Pow Wow

Posted: 25 May 2011 01:03 PM PDT




What can we conclude from this get together of Israeli Premier Benjamin Netanyahu and US President Barack Obama Jr.?


Nothing much for it has always been the same ever since America brokered the confiscation of Palestinian lands with Britain and shipped off their Jewish population from both countries to the stolen lands of the Palestinian Arabs.


Israel exists today because of the American and British treachery in displacing the Palestinians from their homeland.


Barack Obama has proven that he is just another American President who has no choice but to kiss the Zionist Israeli's butt if he wants to remain as the President of the United States of America.


He has solved nothing to bring about any real change over there in Israeli occupied Palestine.


Benjamin Netanyahu is another ruthless and brutal Zionist Israeli regime's terrorist leader who will not budge from occupying Palestine till Kingdom Come!


Palestinians are doomed to suffer forever because the so called Muslim leaders masquerading as the Organization of Islamic Countries are just weak and corrupt spineless morons who do not have the courage or the moral integrity to even speak up or save the Palestinian refugees.


Egypt, supposedly free of the Mubarak regime, refused berthing permission for a Malaysian vessel which was carrying provisions and supplies for the occupied suffering Gazan Palestinians for fear of Israeli attacks.


Syria is busy killing its own people and many other Arab regimes are doing the same upon their citizens who are sick and tired of being oppressed and trodden upon by their presidents, sheikhs, emirs and what the hell ever?


The conclusion of the pow wow shown in the video here only shows to prove that Israel and America are one and the same.


Each won't survive without the other. Palestinians on the other hand are a people whose lands were taken away from them and they have no one to save them from total annihilation by the Zionist Israeli terrorists.


The UN as I have always labelled them to be are Useless Nincompoops.


Their declarations and condemnations against the ruthless Israeli occupation means absolutely nothing to the Zionist Jews!


Barack Obama Jr once again proves that he lied to the Muslim world about bringing 'Change' for once.


The only change he'll bring is some loose change for the suffering Muslims whilst he looks for ways and ruses to suck out precious oil from the Muslim nations that America continues to occupy and loot in the name of freedom.


Freedom to rob and pillage as America and its Tel Aviv masters wish!


Palestinians have no real champions amongst the world's countries.


All will just observe the carnage and genocide of the true owners of the lands which Israel has continued to rob and occupy from the 1940s as they damn well please.


Who dares to wage war against them?


Nobody.


Barack Obama will stoop as low as he can to appease his Zionists masters.


Thats a fact!

Who is Khusairi at SSM?

Posted: 25 May 2011 11:18 AM PDT

Glad to be back again after a short lull. On the day blogspot.com experienced a glitch, my system engineer called up and advised me to stop blogging for a week as he noticed some brilliants were trying to hack mine. I dont know why but they must have reasons.

I've been left out from so many boiling issues but my fellow-blogger have and are attending to it well enough. I also missed out the MACC invitation on Tuesday due to a bad flu.

I think I just want to touch on a simple yet complex issue. It may upset several people and parties but I am compelled to expose it after talking to some friends and 'victims' of the system. It is about Suruhanjaya Syarikat Malaysia or SSM, located at The Mall or Putra Place (whose place?)

Complaints are centered on a few persons but the hi-lite is this someone by the name of Khusairi. There are few Khusairis with the SSM and I believe it must be one of them. This Khusairi is said to be very powerful, much powerful than the CEO and other senior personnel.

He makes decision (does he?) and at anytime can decide who and who get SSM projects. Whether the BOD (they are actually Commission Members) and the CEO are aware of this, is something we need to ask. My phone calls to the CEO office (a few times last week) was attended by a sweet girlish voice who kept on saying that her boss was busy.

Now, if this ordinary non-Commission member executive is not that powerful, his name wouldnt be mentioned by some people outside the organisation. The minister in charge of the SMM is also playing adamant to complaints about him. But still, who and what empowers this Khusairi?

A party has already lodged a police report about 'scandals and conspiracy' at SSM, notably in issuing out contracts to various companies. While the general practice is to issue letter of award to the lowest-yet-reasonable bidder, SSM team will opt for the highest bidder instead.

Its government's (taxpayers' money to be precise) money were are talking here. I dont think it is a wise move to give letter of awards to highest bidders whose offer, as compared to the low-eligible one is a few million ringgit.

Not only the police should investigate but its another assignment for the MACC. If this Khusairi and his team are getting kickbacks from such deals, then the authority must come down hard on them.

One of the cases involves a company by the name of Puncak Semangat, the highest bidder for one SSM contract. A check found out that the company belongs to Syed Mokhtar al-Bukhary stable. My question, did SSM choose Puncak Semangat for its boss of for the 'reward'? And was Khusairi involve in negotiating its project award?

If Syed Mokhtar is a label to most of our projects, then what will happen to our new and upcoming entrepreneurs? Dont tell me that our government-linked agencies are compelled to award any projects, including the ones that cost RM2 milion and RM3 million to an established name? Where is the government's initiative to nurture more millionaires among Malaysians, especially the Malays if there are not given an opportunity to proof their efficiency and capability?

Ok, Syed Mokhtar aside (frankly, I have high respect for this guy), SSM should also investigate the discrepancy clouding another related name - Riadz. My contacts believe Khusairi is and Riadz are buddies and are well-connected with Puncak Semangat.

Well, the MACC got another case here, I presume.


Cico Harahap dan puterinya Nur Fitrah ~ Pertemuan di Tesco Ampang

Posted: 25 May 2011 11:16 AM PDT

Di-antara nikmat nikmat kehidupan ini adalah peluang untuk dapat bersama dengan anak anak kecil terutamanya yang comel comel bagaikan anak patung dan bermanja dengan mereka.


Tengahari semalam, saya bertembung secara tak sengaja dengan pelakon Cico Harahap putera kepada penyanyi legenda tanahair kita, Uji Rashid di Tesco Ampang, semasa saya pergi berbelanja barangan dapur.


Yang seronoknya, saya dapat peluang tumpang mendukung puteri sulong Cico bernama Nur Fitrah yang begitu cantik, comel dan mahu bermanja pula dengan Atok Mamu ni!


Atok Mamu meminta dukong puteri Cico dan ia mahu pula! Apa lagi Atok pun tanya, nak apa kerana Nur Fitrah asyik menunjuk nunjuk kepada penjual aiskrim... hehehehe.. naluri anak anak!


Tanpa berlengah lagi, Atok Mamu pun belikan lah ia aiskrim coklat dengan mendapatkan persetujuan lebih dahulu dari Cico Papa-nya.


Saksikanlah betapa seronoknya anak kecil comel putih melepak ini mendapat aiskrim!

Boleh nampak kegembiraan pada sinar wajahnya.


Bilamana Cico mengajak Nur Fitrah kembali kepada nya, Nur Fitrah tak mahu pergi.




Hahahahaha...habislah! Puteri Cico tak mahu balik pada Papa-nya!


Hehehehehe... gitulah budak budak!


Akhirnya selepas dipujuk Papa nya, barulah hendak ia kembali ke pangkuan ayahnya. Seronok orang tua ini bukan main melihat telatah putri comel ini.




Yang saya puji adalah sikap mesra Cico Harahap dengan saya, walaupun baru pertama kali berkenalan secara 'live' dengan beliau.


Orangnya cukup berbudi bahasa, baik dan tidak sombong. Alhamdulillah!


Bila saya bertanya Cico, projek filem apa yang sedang ia lakukan sekarang, Cico atau nama sebenarnya Eezaq Farouq Harahap memberitahu saya bahawa kini ia menjadi pengajar selam skuba. 


Di perairan Pulau Tioman dan pulau pulau lain. Saya akan mendapatkan maklumat lebih lanjut akan usaha Cico ini dan memaparkan keterangan kelas selaman skubanya dilaman blog saya ini nanti. Insya Allah!


Marilah kita bersama sama mendoakan kesejahteraan dan kebahagiaan untuk Eezaq Farouq Harahap @ Cico Harahap sekeluarga.


Semoga Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala memeliharanya dan memurahkan rezeki bagi putera Uji Rashid ini.


Begitu juga doa saya untuk keselamatan, kebahagiaan dan kejayaan puteri Cico Nur Fitrah!


Semoga ia membesar dengan selamat dan menjadi Muslimah yang beriman dan bertaqwa terhadap Allahu Ta'ala dan berjaya didalam kehidupannya serta menjadi anak yang solehah bagi Cico suami isteri.


Amin Ya Rabbal Alamin.


SAMPAI BILA NAK SABAR DENGAN KEADAAN INI?UMNO PEMIMPIN SILIH BERGANTI, DARI YANG LEMAH KEPADA YANG BERTAMBAH LEMAH

Posted: 25 May 2011 10:33 AM PDT

 APAKAH FAKTOR YANG MEMULAKAN KELEMAHAN INI BERCAMBAH DAN BERCAMBAH? IANYA BERMULA APABILA DR MAHATHIR TIDAK MEMBENTUK BARISAN PELAPIS YANG BOLEH DIYAKINI RAKYAT. BELIAU LEBIH MENUMPUKAN UNTUK MENGEKALKAN KUASA DAN MENERIMA SIAPA SAHAJA YANG BOLEH MEMBERIKAN DUKONGAN SERTA SOKONGAN TERHADAP BELIAU. SEMUA PEMIMPIN YANG SEANGKATAN DENGANNYA TELAH DINYAHKAN SECARA SISTEMATIK DAN AKHIRNYA HANYA BELIAU DAN KRONI PEMIMPIN YANG LEMAH SERTA PENUH DENGAN ELEMEN NEGATIF YANG MEMBINASAKAN NEGARA.

Yang penting mereka-mereka ini menyokong beliau (Mahathir)..tidak kira mereka itu rasuah, lemah, politik wang penjenayah dan sebagainya. Selama 22 tahun beliau berpolitik secara begini, manakan nak jumpa lagi orang yang boleh memimpin kerana tidak seorangpun yang beliau didik untuk menjadi pemimpin yang berguna untuk negara.
Selebihnya pembaca boleh meneruskan apa-apa yang sauadara nampak tentang impak atau 'consequence' terhadap cara dan kaedah Mahathir memimpin negara. Salah satu sumbangan Dr Mahathir kepada negara ialah untuk membunuh dan membinasakan benih-benih baik untuk kepimpinan negara. Benih-benih baik ini merimaskan beliau untuk melakukan apa yang beliau suka dan kehendaki. Akhirnya beliau bejaya memerintah secara beliau selama 22 tahun tetapi tak dapat dipastikan samada pimpinan UMNO kepada negara ini akan kekala beberapa tahun lagi.
Sekarang ini kita berhadapan dengan cara Najib mentadbir yang penuh dengan retorik dan manisan mulut yang mengenakan. Bemacam-macam initiatif yang dilakukan tetapi ianya hanya tinggal sebagai initiatif di atas kertas. Ramai lah yang beriya-iya menyokong tetapi sudah ramai juga yang telah berfikir dan menganggap segala yang dilakukan oleh kepimpinan hari ini hanyalah 'hiasan' untuk mencantikan wajah buat sementara.
Apabila hendak tidur, segala hiasan dan kosmetik di muka dibasuh barulah kita sedar nampak segala lopak dan lubang-lubang di muka yang telah dilindungi oleh bedak hiasan dan 'foundations' yang ditempelkan kemuka kita siang tadi.
Besok kita bubuh kembali foundation untuk menghilangkan lopak dan lubang-lubang tadi dan malam nanti akan nampak kembali lopak dan lubang-lubang itu apabila foundation muka itu dibasuh.
Sampai bila nak sabar dengan keadaan ini?Aspan Alias

MARIA SHRIVER THANKS OPRAH WINFREY FOR ‘THE TRUTH

Posted: 25 May 2011 08:59 AM PDT

WATCH: Maria Shriver Thanks Oprah For Giving Her 'The Truth'

Maria Shriver made her first planned televised appearance since the announcement of her separation from estranged husband Arnold Schwarzenegger

On the show, she thanked the talk show queen for her decades-long friendship. "For more than 30 years, you have bestowed the most amazing friendship on me. You've given me love, support, wisdom, and most of all, the truth," Shriver said. "And I know I'm not alone in receiving those gifts from you. You've taught young women and men to focus on learning everything they can so that they can give the world everything that they are."

With the help of Gayle King, Shriver then introduced a video featuring vignettes of young people from around the world telling Oprah they went to school because of her — over 64,000 of them.

"The number of lives transformed because of you is staggering," Shriver said.

Shriver filmed the appearance on May 18, one day after her estranged husband Arnold Schwarzenegger admitted to fathering a love child with a former household staffer.

On May 18, it was also revealed that the woman was a former housekeeper who worked for the Schwarzenegger family for more than 20 years.

We all have flashes of inspiration. Sometimes they appear as quiet whispers in the night, as fleeting thoughts in the morning shower or as huge "a-ha!" moments. The question is: Are you giving enough attention to the clues that your inner voice is sending? How can you get more attuned to the inner directives? Here are three ways to get started.

1) Knowledge Is Power

Socrates said it best: "Know Thyself." This includes understanding what makes you feel alive, what captures your imagination, and also what comes naturally to you. Knowing your strengths is a huge advantage. If you have a great sense of humor, creativity or an ability to communicate easily with people, then you can build on those qualities to create your best life. By focusing on enhancing your strengths rather than trying to make up for your weaknesses, you can move more quickly in your desired direction and have fun in the process. Ask a few friends what they see as your strengths, and do the same for them. You may be surprised! For more clues, check out "The Authentic Happiness Brief Strength Test."

2) Get Into The Flow

Have you ever been so caught up in an activity that the hours fly by in what seemed like minutes? This is called being in a flow state flow can happen when you're totally immersed in what you are doing and feeling both serene and connected. This buoyant state can happen many ways, including when deeply focusing on a sport, writing a paper or even playing music. Yoga and mindfulness are reported to increase flow, but it can occur anywhere your skill level is equal to your challenge and you get totally absorbed in the activity. When athletes say they were "in the zone," they are talking about flow. When artists refer to the music, art or inspiration flowing through them, it is the same state. Think of times when you were engrossed in something: your attention was heightened and you felt that everything was aligned. What if you made the choice to make more time for that in your day to day? For me, yoga is where I experience flow. Although I never set my sights on being a yoga teacher, I noticed (and happened to pay attention to) an ad in the paper about a yoga teacher-training course. After checking into it, I decided to go for it. The course was one of the most fulfilling experiences I have ever taken on – every class was like immersing myself in flow. What are some ways that you can incorporate more flow into your daily life?

3) Embody What You Believe In

Once you know your strengths and where you experience flow, you can consciously tweak your life to include more of that. By stepping into your authenticity, you automatically come into greater alignment and a peace that serves not only yourself but others, as well. Gandhi stated that "[h]appiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony." Don't underestimate the importance of your own fulfillment and happiness; it ripples out farther than you may know. Rather than rocking the boat by being who you are, you actually give other people permission to do the same. Listen to the clues. By being on the lookout for directives, you will start to see them everywhere. Steve Jobs has an interesting quote:

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life… Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.

If you can tap into your intuition and inner wisdom to direct your passions, you can use that in your own life, as well as to serve others. Then, you will easily embody what you believe, and your authentic happiness will shine the way for others, too.



Apple Gets Honest About New Scam Acknowledges Mac Defender Malware,Enemy of your enemy… Promises Mac OS X Update

Posted: 25 May 2011 08:08 AM PDT

First Nokia. And now BlackBerry. Microsoft is bringing foes together to take on Google's Android and Apple's iOS.
It is fantastic to watch how events are unfolding in the personal technology market. Until four years ago, Nokia used to be the king of the hill. BlackBerry was a phone only the well heeled, and the well connected, required or could afford. It had an impeccable brand image. And Microsoft was the invincible giant; a tech company looming large over everyone in the industry.
Fast forward to 2011, and all three have been cut to size. If not in the market share then at least in the mindshare. Apple and Google are the toast of the town. As smartphones and tablets grow in importance, it seems the game is over for Nokia, Microsoft and RIM (which makes BlackBerry).
But Microsoft has other ideas — despite Windows Phone 7, which, after flattering the world with its fresh user interface, seems to lost the plot. For taking on Google's Android and Apple's iOS, the Redmond giant has decided that forging alliances is the way forward.
The first one was the Nokia and Microsoft deal. For long, some argued that Windows Phone 7 needed a better hardware, suggesting, if only in wild fantasies, that this hardware could come from Nokia. To the world's surprise, Microsoft announced its deal to bring Windows Phone 7 to Nokia on February 11.
Earlier I wasn't sold on Microsoft-Nokia marriage. I felt Nokia could have done better by either working on something like Meego or just by switching to Android. But now I think there is some method to the madness.
The second deal between RIM and Microsoft is significant, and seen along with the first alliance, puts Nokia, RIM and Microsoft on the same platform. Bing Search and Maps on BlackBerry and Nokia phones will extend Microsoft's reach. This effectively means that Microsoft will have big enough user base to take Google head on in the mobile market.
This also means that in future, if these deals survive, Android and Microsoft & Co could emerge as two mass-market players. I say it because despite its strong position now, Apple, the way it has happened in the past, will not be able to populate mass market with its products.
In the absence of cheaper iOS phones its growth is already stagnating even as Android numbers swell. Apple has historically never been able to compete in terms of price and performance. It mostly innovates and does well in situations where it has no competition. Tthe number of iOS devices will not decline, nor Apple's profit, in the shoirt term. But the market share will come down – and with that, much of Apple's mojo.
Predicting the future is hard, but if Microsoft's deals survive, they may prove to be a masterstroke.

Apple acknowledged in a statement that Mac Defender malware, a phishing scam that tries to trick users into giving their credit card information, could have affected between60,000 and 125,000 users. The company posted a new support document providing users with information as to how the malware can be identified and removed and noted that Apple will also issue a Mac OS X update to resolve the issue.

"A recent phishing scam has targeted Mac users by redirecting them from legitimate websites to fake websites which tell them that their computer is infected with a virus," the press release from Apple said. "The user is then offered Mac Defender "anti-virus" software to solve the issue. This "anti-virus" software is malware (i.e. malicious software). Its ultimate goal is to get the user's credit card information which may be used for fraudulent purposes."

Apple also provided step-by-step instructions on how to avoid or remove the malware, and promised a software update in the next few days.

"In the coming days, Apple will deliver a Mac OS X software update that will automatically find and remove Mac Defender malware and its known variants," the document said. "The update will also help protect users by providing an explicit warning if they download this malware."

Apple's release comes shortly after the Mac Defender malware issue first started to spike. At the time, the company told support staff not to help customers who came to them with the malware, or even to admit to the existence of such malware.

The MacDefender malware has been causing trouble for Mac users all over the world; people are calling Apple Support in a panic, spending time visiting their local Apple Store Genius, and getting all stressed out about it. What's worse: the malware is mostly harmless to your computer. It's a scam trying to rip off your credit card number, not hurt your Mac (not that the theft of your credit info is a good thing).

The attack, which displays a message stating that your machine has been infected with viruses that only a "MacDefender" app can remove, has been spreading rapidly — most of the folks encountering it are coming across it via Google image searches, where results have been 'poisoned' with the malware download. MacDefender doesn't infect Macs with a virus, nor does it run a keylogger as a background process on your machine. It's simply trying to scare users into providing credit card information by registering an unneeded piece of software. MacSecurity and MacProtector are the same scam software, differing in name only.

It's been reported by ZDNet's Ed Bott that Apple is telling support reps not to assist with removing this malware. You're on your own, but TUAW is here to help you. Read more to find out how to protect yourself from MacDefender, what a MacDefender attack looks like, and how to remove the app if it is installed on your Mac.

Protecting yourself from MacDefender

You can limit your exposure to these kinds of scams and malware. The malware targets Safari, so follow these steps to protect your Mac:

1 – Launch Safari.

2 – Select Preferences > General from the Safari menu.

3 – Uncheck the "Open 'safe' files after downloading" box found in the area I've outlined in red below:

This action keeps MacDefender malware from automatically launching, even if it's downloaded to your Mac. If you happen to find the downloaded app in your Applications folder, you can simply drag it to the Trash and then Empty Trash to remove it. A clean Downloads folder can help you identify new files that may have been downloaded without your approval.

How do you know when MacDefender or any of its variants are attacking your Mac? Read the next section for details.

What a MacDefender attack looks like

MacDefender attacks your Mac from any site on which a hacker has installed a custom JavaScript. Visiting a web page that you believe is benign runs a JavaScript that redirects you to a malicious website. These sites are changing from day to day, so it's virtually impossible to block them.

Once your browser has been directed to the malevolent site, you'll see a page very similar to the one seen at the top of this post. It's telling you that your Mac is infected with viruses. As mentioned earlier, hackers are already changing the look of the malicious websites, so don't expect the page to look exactly like this.

Usually, just visiting the bad website downloads a file to your hard drive. That file is generally named something like BestMacAntivirus2011.mpkg.zip or anti-malware.zip, but the name may be different. Keep an eye on your downloads folder and keep it clean so that any new downloads that cause the folder to "bounce" will catch your attention, and you may catch that the malware file has been downloaded. It has an extension of .mpkg and a name of MacDefender, MacSecurity, or MacProtector. If you see this file in your downloads folder, put it into the Trash, empty the Trash, and you've just saved your Mac from the malware.

If your Mac is set up to automatically open "safe" files, you still have a chance to keep MacDefender off your machine. In this case, the file is unzipped and the installer package (a file with an .mpkg extension) launches. You're going to see a standard installer window that looks something like this (note: this is the MacSecurity variant pictured):

Sure, this looks pretty official, but do not click the Continue button. You have a chance to save yourself from MacDefender at this point by just quitting the installer, and then throwing away the .mpkg file in your Downloads folder.

Let's say that you decide to click the Continue button. At this point, you've just opened the door to MacDefender and its variants. You'll be asked to provide your administrative password to install the application, at which time the app is added to your Applications folder, launched, and adds files to your login items so that the malware launches every time you log into your Mac.

Wondering what the malware icon looks like? Here's the icon that's used for all current variants:

The name may be different, but the icon is the same for each variant of MacDefender — so far.

If you've gone this far and the malware is running on your Mac, it now displays a scan window that says your Mac is infected with viruses. The following screenshot (courtesy of BleepingComputer.com) is typical of what you'll see:

macdefender application malware screen

Looks pretty official, doesn't it? Of course, here's where things get really dicey. If you want to remove the nonexistent "viruses," you have to register MacDefender. To do that, you're asked for your credit card number.

– DO NOT REGISTER THIS PROGRAM! –

If you have already done so, call your credit card company immediately and cancel the card. Once you've taken care of the credit card issues, come back to TUAW and read the following section so that you can remove the offending malware from your Mac.

Removing MacDefender

Once MacDefender is running on your Mac, it displays the scan window shown just above. If you try to drag the app to the Trash, you are notified that the app is in use. That means that you need to kill any running processes on your Mac that are related to the malware before you can start deleting the files.

To start, close the Scan window, which is designed to float above all other windows for maximum annoyance. Remember, your Mac is not infected with viruses — these guys are just trying to get your credit card number.

Now launch Activity Monitor. You can find this in the Utilities folder that is located in your Applications folder (/Applications/Utilities). Look for a process with the name of MacDefender, MacSecurity, MacProtector, or whatever other variant shows up. When you've found that process, click on it to highlight it, and then click the Quit Process button as seen in the screenshot below (from Reed Corner Design):

After clicking the Quit Process button, another dialog appears:

Click Quit to stop the process from running. You can now remove the malware from your Mac. First, get rid of the application itself. Look in your Applications folder for the MacDefender icon shown previously or look for a file with a name of one of the malware variants. Drag that icon to the Trash, and then Empty Trash.

The application is gone, but it will try to launch itself at login and probably display an error message on your Mac screen as a result. Let's fix that — open System Preferences (under the Apple menu or in your Dock) and click the Accounts icon. You'll see something similar to this mockup:

See the item that says MacDefender? It's set to automatically open when you log into your Mac. To remove the malware from the Login Items list, click on the malware in the list to highlight it, and then click the minus button ("-") that's below the text in this window.

At this point, you've moved towards a safer Mac — the malware is gone and so is the login item. You can go further than this if you'd like by doing a search for MacDefender (or whatever the malware was called on your Mac) in Spotlight, and then removing any files that have the malware name in them.

Moving ahead in the age of Mac malware

MacDefender is the first major malware attack in many years to specifically target Macs, and it's probably not going to be the last. In addition to our recommendation on changing Safari preferences to not open downloaded "safe" files immediately, there are some common-sense things you can do to protect yourself from future malware attacks:

1 – Never install any apps unless you are absolutely sure of where they're coming from and what they are.

2 – If an installer appears on your screen and you're not sure how it got there, don't let it install the software.

3 – Consider installing free anti-virus / anti-malware software. Both Sophos Anti-Virus for Mac Home Editionand ClamXav 2 are free and relatively unobtrusive.

4 – Never give your credit card number to anyone through an app. Most reputable software vendors provide other ways to purchase their products (Mac App Store or payment by PayPal) that do not compromise your credit card.

5 – Be cautious when entering admin credentials for strange applications (thanks to @jtjdt for the tip). The only time you should ever be prompted for your administrative password is when you are deliberately installing an application or plug-in.

6 – If your primary account on your Mac has administrative rights, consider changing that so that you have a separate admin account and your day-to-day account is a 'standard' account. This can protect against some privilege escalation approaches, and helps guard against issues in one account affecting the entire Mac.

TUAW doesn't believe in scaring its readers. MacDefender is a warning to those of us who use Macs that hackers are now starting to pay attention to our previously malware-free world. A little bit of paranoia goes a long way in a world that can be, sadly, malicious rather than embracing, but a few simple precautions and a bit of situational awareness can go a long way towards keeping us all safe on our Macs.



Traditional Doctors, Alternative Treatments: An Intersection?

Posted: 25 May 2011 08:04 AM PDT

Sometimes it can seem as though complementary/alternative treatments and traditional medicine live in two silos — never the twain shall meet, as the saying goes. We go to the doctor when we're sick or for regular wellness checks. And we go to the yoga studio or a meditation class. Yet we don't talk to our doctors about how one can support the other.

But the tide may be turning — a recent studyin the journal Archives of Internal Medicinehas found that three percent of people seeking out mind/body treatments, such as yoga, meditation, tai chi, deep breathing and progressive muscle relaxation, are doing so based on a referral from a medical provider.

And while that number may not seem to be particularly high, consider a yoga or meditation class, of say, 30 people — on average, one of them is there because their provider told them to be, explains lead author and HuffPost blogger Aditi Nerurkar, M.D., M.P.H, a physician and integrative medicine fellow at Harvard Medical school and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center. "We weren't expecting it to be that high," she says. "Forty-one million Americans are using mind-body therapies. Of those, 6.4 million are using mind-body therapies because they were recommended to by their provider."

Looking at a nationally representative sample size of 23,000 survey participants, the researchers found that the most commonly prescribed treatments were deep breathing exercises (84 percent of the respondents), meditation (49 percent), yoga (23 percent), progressive muscle relaxation (20 percent) and guided imagery (14 percent). These numbers were similar to those who sought out the treatments on their own.

"For years and years this has been a patient-driven phenomenon," Nerurkar says. As people discover what works best for themselves and loved ones, yoga studios, for instance, have popped up to fill a need that patients haven't always discussed with their doctors. So why are some physicians ready to hand out an Rx for a little "Om" time?

One reason may be the relatively recent body of research on how various mind-body treatments can be helpful, healthy additions to traditional treatment programs for certain conditions, including anxiety and depression, headaches, chronic pain, cardiac disease, insomnia and treatment-related symptoms of cancer, Nerurkar says.

The researchers also found that the patients who were seeking out mind-body treatments at the recommendation of a medical provider were those who typically had more diagnosed conditions and used the health-care system more often. Nerurkar says one reason that may be is that providers are referring their more complex patients once other treatments have failed — and this concept may lead to future research studies about what would happen if these complementary programs were offered earlier on in the treatment process.

Of course, not all complementary and alternative treatments have evidence behind them, Nerurkar points out. But when the research that is out there is coupled with patients' success stories, some providers are opening up to the possibilities. "Ultimately you just want your patients to feel better," she says. "At the end of the day, if my patients are using these therapies and they're feeling good, I encourage them to do it."

Here are some starting points for each of the mind-body treatments most commonly suggested by the medical community:

Deep breathing: Regular deep breathing — taking slow breaths in and out — has been linked to regulation of the cardiovascular and nervous systems and easing symptoms of anxiety, among other benefits. To start out a deep breathing exercise, focus on your breath coming in and out as it would normally and then begin deeper breaths, spending longer on inhalations and exhalations, according to the University of Rochester:

Breathe deeply and slowly, focusing all of your attention on each breath. Don't rush it or breathe quickly. As you exhale naturally, allow any tension to leave you with the breath. Imagine the tension draining from your body and mind as you exhale. Notice the feeling of calm and relaxation that comes with exhalation.

Meditation: Studies have linked regular meditation to, among many other benefits, adecrease in fatigue and depression in multiple sclerosis patients, boosts in cellular healthand a reduction in the severity of various mental and physical side effects from certain types of cancer treatment.

"A pinch of tobacco, rolled in paper with fire at one end and a fool at other" – Wonderfully described definition of a cigarette.

Michael Jordan, a basketball legend and entrepreneur has smoked himself into a controversy last year. His enjoyment of cigars is no secret, but now after recent photos of Jordan on some new websites and magazines showed up with Jordanpuffing away on a cigar at a celebrity soft ball game.

"When high profile people publicly display unhealthy habits they can mislead young people to emulate their behaviour."
Smoking was once thought to be a very fascinating phenomenon. The pleasure effect it has on the human mind as well as the style statement associated with it was considered an element of high esteem. Formerly regarded as a "lifestyle choice" smoking is now recognized as a chronic, relapsing disorder caused because of addiction.
Tobacco has been used by humans since the earliest recorded history of the western hemisphere, but cigarettes did not become popular until the 19th century. It was in 1913 when camel, the first modern cigarette was introduced and mass marketed by R.J. Reynolds that consumption of cigarettes increased dramatically.
Nearly all first use of Tobacco occurs before high school graduation so if adolescent don't start smoking by age 18, odds are they never will. For those who experiment with cigarette, new research shows teens can get hooked on nicotine more quickly than adults by extremely low levels of Tobacco.
Understanding the addiction

To cease smoking is the easiest thing I ever did. I ought to know because I've done it a thousand times. ~Mark Twain, attributed

When a cigarette is smoked, nicotine rich blood passes from the lungs to the brain within 7 seconds and immediately stimulates the release of many chemical messengers. These messengers stimulate the brain and cause pleasure, appetite suppression, arousal, cognitive enhancement, learning mood modulation and reduction of anxiety and tension. The decrease in brain reward function experienced during cessation of smoking is an essential component of nicotine addiction and a key barrier to abstinence.
Benefits of quitting
One thousand Americans stop smoking every day – by dying. ~ Author Unknown.
By stopping smoking as early as possible, there can be a reduction in the risk of cancers and lung and heart diseases. Quitting is worthwhile because it reduces the risk of heart disease, having a blood clot, developing several types of cancers and chronic lung diseases. At the same time quitting cigarettes,  improves stamina for exercising and participating in sports and also improves senses of taste and smell.
Ways to help teenagers stay free from smoking

• Understand the attraction – Ask your teens how he feels about smoking, sometimes teen smoking is a form of rebellion or a way to fit in with a particular group of friends. Some teens smoke to feel better about themselves others smoke to feel cool or independent.

• Not to go for advertisements – Talk with your teen about how tobacco companies try to influence ideas about smoking – such as paying actors and celebrities to smoke in movies and advertisements to create the perception that smoking is cool.
• Set a good example – Teen smoking is more common among teens whose parents smoke. If you do smoke, quit now. Don't smoke in the house, in the car or before your teen, and don't leave cigarettes where your teen might find them. Explain how unhappy you are with your smoking and how difficult it is to quit.
• Appeal to your teen's vanity – Smoking is not glamorous, tell your teen that smoking is a dirty, smelly habit. It gives them bad breath, makes their clothes smell, and it turns their teeth yellow. Smoking can leave them with less energy for sports and other activities that they enjoy.
• Do the arithmetic – Smoking is expensive. Help your teen calculate the weekly, monthly or yearly cost of a pack a day. You might compare teen cost of smoking with that of electronic gadgets, clothes or other teen essentials.
• Take habit seriously – Most teens believe they can quit smoking any time they want. But teens become just as addicted to nicotine as do adults, often quickly and relatively with low doses of nicotine. And once they are hooked, it is tough to quit.
• How to avoid peer pressure – Teach your children how to handle peer pressure. It all starts with talking about peer pressure. How it can be very subtle and how your child can say no without feeling like he is offending his friend.
How teen can avoid smoking
• Brush you teeth right after meals: The urge to smoke is really intense right after meals. So it is a good idea to get up from the table right after you eat, head into the bathroom, and brush and floss your teeth.
• Cut down on alcohol, because all too often a cigarette and a drink are very closely linked.
• Anytime you get the urge to smoke, put a drop of clove oil on your finger and apply it to the back of your tongue.
• Keep your hands busy: write letters, do crosswords, read a book, make puzzles, take up drawing and painting.
• The rubber band method – This method is actually backed by research. You wear a rubber band around your wrist and snap it against your skin when you feel the urge to smoke. Be sure that the rubber band is loose enough so it doesn't block blood flow or leave a mark on the skin when it is removed.
If your teen has already started smoking, avoid threats and ultimatums. Instead, be supporting find out why your teen is smoking and then discuss ways to help your teen stop smoking, such as hanging out with friends who don't smoke or getting involved in new activities. Stopping teen smoking in its tracks is the best thing your teen can do for a lifetime of good health.
Thank you for Not Smoking. Cigarette smoke is the residue of your pleasure. It contaminates the air, pollutes my hair and clothes, not to mention my lugs. This takes place without my consent. I have a pleasure, also. I like a beer now and then. The residue of my pleasure is urine. Would you be annoyed if I stood on a chair and pissed on your head and your clothes without your consent? ~ Sign from Ken's Magic Shop.

Stigma buruk yang melekat kepada UMNO susah hendak dibuang

Posted: 25 May 2011 06:20 AM PDT

Kalau saya duduk termenung memikirkan nasib UMNO di masa akan datang, seperti juga ramai yang lain saya tidak dapat berfikir apa cara yang perlu dilakukan oleh UMNO untuk kembali menjadi parti yang dihormati dan disanjung bukan sahaja oleh orang Melayu tetapi juga oleh bangsa-bangsa lain seperti yang pernah dialaminya dahulu.

Maklum sajalah UMNO selama ini adalah tunjang kepada politik tanak air. Semasa hebatnya UMNO rakyat berfikir tanpa UMNO kita akan rebah rempah dan tidak tahu apa akan terjadi kepada negara. Semasa itu UMNO! UMNO! UMNO!, tidak ada yang lain melainkan UMNO.

Tetapi itu sudah menjadi bahan bacaan sejarah kepada kita. Sebagai seorang ahli sejak awal tujuh puluhan saya terasa dan nampak jelas perubahan yang berlaku di dalam UMNO. Kita akui semuanya itu tetap berubah mengikut waktu dan zamannya tetapi perubahan budaya dan etika di dalam UMNO itu hanyalah menjurus kepada kejatuhannya dan bukannya kearah membina perjuangan yang sepatutnya dilakukan oleh UMNO.

Kelemahan UMNO ialah untuk menguruskan kejayaannya. Itu nyata. Masalahnya bermula apabila UMNO diwariskan kepada pemimpin yang tidak berjiwa UMNO. Mereka hanya berteriak kuat tentang UMNO tetapi UMNO dipergunakan oleh pemimpin yang menerima warisan itu untuk kepentingan peribadi dan keluarga semata-mata.

Ada pemimpin yang yang suatu ketika dahulu tidak mampu mengisi minyak kereta yang kecil sekarang sudah menjadi pemimpin besar. Itu pun tidak mengapa. Ramai dalam sejarah dunia pemimpin yang datangnya dari keluarga yang miskin tetapi berjaya menjadi pemimpin yang memperjuangkan rakyat jelata dengan baik. Tetapi yang tidak dapat di maafkan ialah mereka memerah segala apa yang ada untuk memperkayakan diri tanpa had dan lebih-lebih lagi tanpa malu dan segan pula bercakap tentang perjuangan yang tinggi-tinggi yang mereka sendiri tidak mampu melakukannya.

UMNO yang membina segala institusi demokrasi, UMNO jugalah yang membinasakan institusi-institusi ini. Apabila pelacuran ke atas bidang Kehakiman negara pada 1988 dahulu institusi kehakiman tidak kebah-kebah dengan imej yang tidak meyakinkan, bukan sahaja oleh rakyat negara ini tetapi juga oleh masyarakat antarabangsa. UMNO yang memperkuatkan institusi Raja-Raja untuk memperkuatkan kedudukan orang Melayu dahulu, UMNO jugalah yang merobek dan merebahkan institusi ini sehingga institusi ini menjadi lemah dan longlai.

Banyak lagi contoh-contoh yang ada tetapi blog ini telah menulisnya berulang kali dan tidak payah lagi lah diulang-ulang. Ianya menyedihkan dan menjemukan bukan sahaja kepada pembaca tetapi juga kepada diri saya sebagai penulisnya.

Tetapi warisan yang amat mengecewakan rakyat ialah budaya rasuah dan menggunakan kuasa dengan salah itu adalah dosa yang tidak dapat diampunkan oleh ramai rakyat pengundi. Mereka adalah di kalangan the 'silent majority' dan di antara mereka ini adalah ahli-ahl UMNO sendiri. Itulah sebabnya saya pernah menulis ahli-ahli UMNO keluar parti bukannya dihadapan kamera TV3 atau RTM tetapi bertukar parti semasa di dalam peti undi. Ini sudah terbukti kerana seramai lebih dari 1.5 juta ahli UMNO pernah memberikan undi kepada parti pembangkang.

Tidak guna UMNO mempunyai ahli yang ramai. Ibarat tubuh badan yang besar tetapi tubuh yang mengalami banyak penyakit yang 'terminal' hanya untuk menunggu akhir kalamnya sahaja. Apabila ada ahli yang sedar dan mengkritik, penyokong dan pengampu-pengampu tanpa tauliah akan menerpa mengutuk dan membidas kumpulan kecil yang sedar ini. Pendeknya tidak ada apa-apa ruang untuk UMNO memperbaiki dirinya.

Sebagai seorang yang sudah bersara dari semua kegiatan saya mempunyai masa yang teruang untuk bertemu dengan manusia yang berfikir setiap hari. Sementara menunggu waktu menjemput cucu dari sekolah selalu saya berjumpa dengan orang ramai dan berkesempatan untuk bercakap. Biasalah, di negara ini semua rakyat bercakap pasal politik. Dalam perbincangan yang saya adakan amat payah bagi saya untuk terjumpa individu yang tidak mengkritik UMNO dan komponannya.

Baru dua hari yang lepas saya dijemput oleh orang yang saya belum pernah berjumpa untk minum kopi. Mereka bertanya di mana patut kita minum. Saya menjawab kalau ikut standard saya kita hanya patut berjumpa di kedai mamak yang hampir dengan rumah saya, kerana saya tidak berkemampuan untuk minum di restoren-restoren besar-besar. Akhirnya mereka bersetuju untuk berjumpa dan nyata mereka adalah di antara yang mengikuti tulisan saya.

"Encik Aspan, why are you so possessive of UMNO? Do you really know that you are being detested by the party leaders?" Saya menjawab pendek sahaja "Bro, I don't care. Let them hate me but I shall stand where I am".

Tidak dapat saya hendak mengingati perkataan-perkataan yang timbul dari mulut mereka, tetapi kumpulan ini adalah kumpulan yang selama ini mengndi UMNO tetapi sudah tidak tahan lagi dengan keadaan, sikap dan nilai yang ada kepada pimpinan parti ini.

"I can't forgive them bro. They are milking the country dry. They are loads of corruptible leaders. There is no way can we stand their shenanigans any longer" kata salah seorang dari mereka serius. "All leaders up there are suffering from corruption addiction. They can't get out of it. Our country is deadly in trouble and there should be concerted efforts from us to change it." sambungnya lagi.

Saya hanya menjawab, "I am nobody and with no consequence what so ever. Let them do whatever they wish. Dia orang fikir dia boleh lari dari pembalasan. Mereka sangka mereka ada immuniti dari tindakan undang-undang dan immunity dari balasan Tuhan. Oleh kerana mereka hendak belajar dari pengalaman sendiri, biarkan!"

Perbualan itu panjang juga. Tetapi saya terpaksa meminta diri kerana hendak ke sekolah menjemput cucu. Tetapi sebelum saya bangun sempat salah seorang dari mereka bertanya, "Bang, abang ingat ahli-ahli MKT tu boleh memperjuangkan Melayu dan rakyat ke bang?" Rakan saya yang bersama saya dari awal menjawab juga pendek, "Kalau mereka benar-benar hendak memperjuangkan Melayu dan rakyat, mereka tidak sepatutnya berada di sana. They are rouges and should not be trusted"

Perbualan seperti ini memang kita dengar di mana-mana. Persepsi buruk terhadap UMNO itu tidak dapat dihilangkan lagi. Masalahnya apabila pandangan buruk seperti ini sudah menjadi lumrah, apa sahaja yang diperkatakan oleh pemimpin-pemimpin kita tidak diyakini lagi.

Blog ini acapkali memperkatakan tentang isu ini dan selalu dibidas oleh banyak pihak. Kecenderungan rakyat untuk bertindak bertentangan dengan kehendak pemimpin kita semakain jelas kerana merek merasakan pimpinan sudah tidak layak diberikan keyakinan lagi. Rakyat ramai sedang cenderung untuk melihat kepimpinan turun dan menggantikan dengan kepimpinan yang lain.

Usaha Ahmad Zahid Hamidi dan Muhyiddin untuk menghalang orang Melayu dari mendekati DAP misalnya tidak diiraukan orang ramai lagi. Rakyat menganggapkan pemimpin-pemimpin itu sedang merasakan ketakutan mereka terhadap sokongan parti itu dari berkembang. Rakyat tidak segan dan silu lagi untuk memberikan perhatian kepada DAP kerana mahu mengambil kesempatan untuk memberi pengajaran terhadap pimpinan yang mereka anggap sebagai perosak kepada negara kita. PAS juga sedang menerima sokongan dari ramai rakyat Islam yang berpendidikan yang mempunyai pengaruh besar dalam masyarakat.

Kepada yang serius cuba anda fikirkan cara dan kaedah untuk UMNO mendapatkan kembali keyakinan rakyat tanpa banyak persoalan. Saya tidak nampak cara yang lain selain dari keseluruhan pimpinan parti ini dibarisi oleh barisan yang baru secara total untuk melenyapkan imej dan stigma buruk yang di alami oleh UMNO sekarang ini. Kita wajar mengakui UMNO telah terabai sebegitu lama.

Ini sahaja tindakan yang boleh melenyapkan persepsi buruk rakyat terhadap UMNO jika benar-benar mahukan UMNO terus menerajui pimpinan negara. Kalau tidak mahu percaya tidak mengapa. Memang kita tidak mahu belajar dari kesilapan orang lain. kita lebih suka untuk belajar dari kesilapan kita sendiri.

Kata perbilangan, 'sesal dulu pendapatan, sesal kemudian tiada gunanya'.

DR AZIZ BARI UMNO BAGAI BERKEPALA OSTRICH PARTI ISLAM TERSEBUT BAGAIKAN ‘GAJAH TAK BERKEPALA

Posted: 25 May 2011 04:54 AM PDT

 

:

Pemerhati politik PAS, Profesor Dr Aziz Bari menyifatkan keengganan kepimpinan tertinggi PAS membawa perubahan dalam parti Islam tersebut bagaikan 'gajah tak berkepala'.

"Kalau dipimpin korporal saja, apa jadi pada general?" Aziz bertanya dalam forum dalam satu forum bertajuk 'Pemilihan PAS: Mampukah PAS membuat lonjakan?' di Dewan Perhimpunan Cina  Kuala Lumpur dan Selangor (KLSCAH).
Beliau berkata demikian semasa mengulas keengganan presiden Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang menjadi pemangkin pembaharuan dalam PAS.
"Walaupun PAS besar dengan keahlian lebih 1 juta orang ia bagaikan gajah tak berkepala," Dr Aziz berkata dalam forum anjuran Free Public Forum (FPF) dan Institut Hal Ehwal Demokrasi dan Ekonomi (IDEAS).
Beliau menambah kepimpinan parti lebih dilihat aktif secara bermusim sedangkan ketua parti boleh dilantik sebagai Perdana Menteri.

PAS terjebak
"PAS masih lagi terjebak. Perwakilan enggan berubah dan enggan memberi arahan buang padang meskipun Tan Sri Mohd Asri Muda pernah dikeluarkan."
Asri merupakan mantan presiden PAS sejak 1971 hingga Oktober 1982 yang dibuang oleh jawatankuasa disiplin PAS.
Ahli parlimen Shah Alam Khalid Samad walau bagaimana pun mempertahankan kepimpinan ulama di dalam PAS di bawah presiden parti Abdul Hadi.
"Ada baiknya orang No. 1 parti bukan pro-perubahan kerana beliau memastikan parti masih dalam kawalan..READMOREhttp://melayukini786.wordpress.com/2011/05/25/dr-aziz-bari-umno-bagai-berkepala-ostrich-parti-islam-tersebut-bagaikan-%E2%80%98gajah-tak-berkepala/

Ron 95, Disel dan LPG ~ Tiada kenaikan harga - Dato Seri Ismail Sabri

Posted: 25 May 2011 04:43 AM PDT

Alhamdulillah! Syukur ke hadrat Ilahi! 


Menteri Perdagangan Dalam Negeri, Koperasi dan Kepenggunaan Dato Seri Ismail Sabri mengumumkan bahawa Kabinet Kerajaan BN Malaysia mengambil keputusan tidak akan ada kenaikan harga bagi Minyak Petrol RON 95, Disel dan Gas Memasak LPG buat masa ini.


Kerajaan BN Malaysia menanggung sabsidi sebanyak RM18 Bilion untuk menampung harga ketiga tiga bahan tersebut demi menjaga kepentingan rakyat.


Khabar gembira bagi seluruh rakyat Malaysia ini dilaporkan oleh portal Agenda Daily disini. Begitu juga laporan akhbar The Star disini.


Harga RON 95 kekal pada RM1.90 seliter. Disel RM1.80 seliter dan Gas LPG pada RM1.90 sekilogram. Begitu juga dimaklumkan bahawa tarif elektrik dikekalkan pada kadar semasa.


Hidup Dato Ismail Sabri & Kabinet BN Malaysia! Terimakasih!


Syukur Alhamdulillah sekali lagi saya ucapkan diatas khabar yang melegakan ini. Sebagai seorang pemandu kenderaan persendirian, saya ingin rakamkan ribuan terimakasih kepada Dato Seri Ismail Sabri dan Kerajaan BN Malaysia diatas pertimbangan ini.
Mudah2an dikekalkan harga harga semasa ini dan jika boleh ditingkatkan penguatkuasaan pengawalan penjualan petrol di stesen stesen minyak negara kita dipersempadan negara terutamanya di sekitar Johor Bahru.


Setiap hari berpusu pusu kenderaan persendirian dari Republik Singapura datang mengisi minyak di serata stesen stesen minyak kita. 


Perangai kiasu mereka jangan cakap lah! Amatlah menyakitkan hati! 


Bagaikan orang kemaruk! Bergelagat bagaikan orang keturunan Tuan Haji Bakhil bin Lebai Kedekut! Hahahahahaha! Buat malu Lee Kuan Yew je! :P


Cheapskate??? Har! Har! Har! Har!

Marina Mahathir Again Invokes the ‘Islamophobia’ Card

Posted: 25 May 2011 04:02 AM PDT

Marina Mahathir, as expected, takes Spew-tusan and Ib-brainless-him Ali to task for their slander against Christians.

Kudos to her for that.

However, as is similarly to be expected from her past writings where she invokes 'Islamophobia', in blasting the local conspiracy nuts for their habit of projection (which I too called Ibrahim Ali out on), she gives a flimsy and inaccurate comparison from the USA:

Lending credence to stories

In other words, many people assume that everyone will act exactly like them if given the chance in any situation.

Therefore, one assumes that others will behave in a good or bad way because if put in the same situation, that's exactly what one would do.

So what does it say about a person who assumes that if people of different faiths from them get together, they must surely be plotting something bad?

It means that if this person were in the same position, that is in a minority position facing much harassment from ruling authorities over one thing or another, then he would certainly be plotting to take over the country.

I suppose that's why the American government worries about its Muslim citizens so much.

Surely, they reason, if we harass them all the time, they must be conspiring to do something bad, such as blow up a building, because that's what we would do.

Wise up Miss MM… The reason the American government and ordinary citizens worry so much is more along these lines:

Terrorism in the United States – Islamic Extremism

1977 Hanafi Siege
1989 firebombing of the Riverdale Press
1990 Assassination of Meir Kahane by Egyptian
1990 Assassination of Rashad Khalifa for questioning Koranic verses

2010 Abu Talhah al-Amrikee death threats to South Park Creators- See: Zachary Adam Chesse
2011 Alleged Saudi Arabian student bomb plots
2011 Manhattan terrorism plot

As I say over and over… Who really gives a bad name to Islam and causes 'Islamophobia'?

This?

Or this?

Oops, does the above image put paid to your belief that such a thing does not exist? If so, I'm sorry – because there's plenty more belief-put-paid at the link!

And as for your idea that there aren't any Muslim groups trying to take over America…

  • Shariah4America.com – In Islam, the public veneration of idols and statues is strictly prohibited. This has forced sincere Muslims to develop realistic plans that will aid in the removal of the Statue of Liberty.

In fact, if they weren't so stupidly afraid of being politically correct, they wouldn't end up having to molest senior age nuns and 6 year old girls… Just to put on a good show of not being ''hostile'.

But I forget, all the violence and terror is probably caused by Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh (the latter of whom Miss MM knows only a caricature of).

PS. Dr Azmi Sharom is another opiner who is wilfully blind to the motivations of terrorists.



Israeli PM Benjamin Netanyahu’s Speech to the US Congress, May 2011

Posted: 25 May 2011 04:04 AM PDT

What Netanhayu says makes perfect, logical sense to me. But of course, there are hundreds of millions in the world who will not accept the two state solution simply, because.

See also What to Do to Get Israel to Do This and That.

Via AoSHQ, excerpts from The Right Scoop which has the video as well:

Benjamin Netanyahu's epic speech before Congress

We've already seen the beginnings of what is possible. In the last two years, the Palestinians have begun to build a better life for themselves. Prime Minister Fayad has led this effort. I wish him a speedy recovery from his recent operation. We've helped the Palestinian economy by removing hundreds of barriers and roadblocks to the free flow of goods and people. The results have been nothing short of remarkable. The Palestinian economy is booming. It's growing by more than 10% a year.

Palestinian cities look very different today than they did just a few years ago. They have shopping malls, movie theaters, restaurants, banks. They even have e-businesses. This is all happening without peace. Imagine what could happen with peace. Peace would herald a new day for both peoples. It would make the dream of a broader Arab-Israeli peace a realistic possibility.

So now here is the question. You have to ask it. If the benefits of peace with the Palestinians are so clear, why has peace eluded us? Because all six Israeli Prime Ministers since the signing of Oslo accords agreed to establish a Palestinian state. Myself included. So why has peace not been achieved? Because so far, the Palestinians have been unwilling to accept a Palestinian state, if it meant accepting a Jewish state alongside it.

You see, our conflict has never been about the establishment of a Palestinian state. It has always been about the existence of the Jewish state. This is what this conflict is about. In 1947, the United Nations voted to partition the land into a Jewish state and an Arab state. The Jews said yes. The Palestinians said no. In recent years, the Palestinians twice refused generous offers by Israeli Prime Ministers, to establish a Palestinian state on virtually all the territory won by Israel in the Six Day War.

They were simply unwilling to end the conflict. And I regret to say this: They continue to educate their children to hate. They continue to name public squares after terrorists. And worst of all, they continue to perpetuate the fantasy that Israel will one day be flooded by the descendants of Palestinian refugees.

My friends, this must come to an end. President Abbas must do what I have done. I stood before my people, and I told you it wasn't easy for me, and I said – "I will accept a Palestinian state". It is time for President Abbas to stand before his people and say – "I will accept a Jewish state".

Jews from around the world have a right to immigrate to the Jewish state. Palestinians from around the world should have a right to immigrate, if they so choose, to a Palestinian state. This means that the Palestinian refugee problem will be resolved outside the borders of Israel.

As for Jerusalem, only a democratic Israel has protected freedom of worship for all faiths in the city. Jerusalem must never again be divided. Jerusalem must remain the united capital of Israel. I know that this is a difficult issue for Palestinians. But I believe with creativity and goodwill a solution can be found.

In recent years, Israel withdrew from South Lebanon and Gaza. But we didn't get peace. Instead, we got 12,000 thousand rockets fired from those areas on our cities, on our children, by Hezbollah and Hamas. The UN peacekeepers in Lebanon failed to prevent the smuggling of this weaponry. The European observers in Gaza evaporated overnight. So if Israel simply walked out of the territories, the flow of weapons into a future Palestinian state would be unchecked. Missiles fired from it could reach virtually every home in Israel in less than a minute. I want you to think about that too. Imagine that right now we all had less than 60 seconds to find shelter from an incoming rocket. Would you live that way? Would anyone live that way? Well, we aren't going to live that way either.

And Hamas is not a partner for peace. Hamas remains committed to Israel's destruction and to terrorism. They have a charter. That charter not only calls for the obliteration of Israel, but says 'kill the Jews wherever you find them'. Hamas' leader condemned the killing of Osama bin Laden and praised him as a holy warrior. Now again I want to make this clear. Israel is prepared to sit down today and negotiate peace with the Palestinian Authority. I believe we can fashion a brilliant future of peace for our children. But Israel will not negotiate with a Palestinian government backed by the Palestinian version of Al Qaeda.

So I say to President Abbas: Tear up your pact with Hamas, Sit down and negotiate! Make peace with the Jewish state! And if you do, I promise you this. Israel will not be the last country to welcome a Palestinian state as a new member of the United Nations. It will be the first to do so.

He's so quick on the draw, he even used an attempted dirsuption by a pro-Hamas Code Pinko to contrast true democracy and democracy-pretending despotism!

He was applauded 56 thunderous times, 20 of them standing… Magnitudes more skilful an orator than President Teleprompter.



Obama and Tornadoes – Then and Now

Posted: 25 May 2011 03:53 AM PDT

Back on the campaign trail in 2007, Candidate Obama was speaking about the then-recent Kansas tornadoes, using it as a brickbat to attack Operation Iraqi Freedom (which was a hobby horse of his).

Whether fib or flub, he claimed 10,000 people had died. Shame on Bush for drawing needed resources away from Kansas. Shame!

The actual number of tornado fatalities? Four.

Now in 2011, the death toll from the tornadoes in Joplin has risen to over a hundred. Where is President Obama?

Acting like a fool in England and Ireland.

But hey, I ain't judging… Maybe Michelle's friend's father died in Britain or something.

Above, before-and-after pic of devastated Joplin from The Daily What via AoSHQ.

Hari ini Allah swt tengah murka pada seluruh kaum Adam terutamanya umat kesayangannya, yakni umat Islam yang telah jauh sesat. Maka, Allah swt menurunkan bala yang setimpal di Masjidil Haram di kota Mekah Al-Mukaramah, megeluarkan jerung raksasa yang lapar dari perut bumi. Kota Mekah dilanda banjir dan pengunjung-pengunjung beribadat sekeliling baitullah digigit dan dinyonyot sepuas-puasnya oleh binatang peliharaan Allah yang istimewa ini! Allahuakbar!!
 Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Malaysia (Perkasa) akan membuat laporan polis berhubung satu entri blog yang didakwa menghina agama Islam dengan memaparkan gambar seekor jerung di atas Kaabah selain menggunakan kata-kata yang menghina agama tersebut.
Entri blog itu dikesan pada Isnin lalu dengan menggunakan nama Makcik Hajjah Sitt Al-Wuzara atauhttp://makcikhajjahsittalwuzara99.wordpress.com.
Malah sebuah akaun laman sosial Facebook turut dikesan menggunakan profil 'Makcik Hajjah Sitt Al-Wuzara'.
Ketika dihubungi FMT, Ketua Wira Perkasa Irwan Fahmi berkata laporan akan dibuat di Ibu Pejabat Polis Dang Wangi (IPD), Kuala Lumpur jam 3.30 petang ini. Laporan polis itu dijangka telah dibuat apabila berita ini ditulis.
Menurut Irwan, beliau dan Presiden Perkasa Datuk Ibrahim Ali telah membaca entri blog terbabit dan menyifatkan ia satu tindakan yang tidak bermoral dengan menghina Islam yang merupakan agama rasmi negara ini.
Irwan berkata laporan itu untuk mendesak pihak polis dan Suruhanjaya Komunikasi dan Multimedia Malaysia (SKMM) untuk menyiasat lebih lanjut dan mengambil tindakan sewajarnya terhadap pemilik atau jurublog tersebut.
"Ia satu penghinaan yang sangat kurang ajar dan melampau batasan. Saya minta orang yang bertanggungjawab hormati agama Islam.Maka kami mahu desak pihak polis untuk membuat siasatan lanjut. Kalau boleh letak orang yang terbabit dalam ISA…..kerana tiada toleransi bila membabitkan hal agama.
"Kita perlu tegas kerana ia soal agama. Bagaimana jika perkara ini berlaku kepada agama lain?," soalnya.
Irwan berkata selain entri blog itu, Perkasa turut membuat laporan berhubung tindakan Timbalan Menteri Pelajaran Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong yang memprotes ekoran dakwaan berlakunya salah urus dalam pengagihan biassiswa oleh pegawai Jabatan Perkhidmatan Awam (JPA).

Masalah biasiswa
Semuanya tercetus apabila timbul dakwaan bahawa 363 pelajar yang memperoleh kesemua A+ gagal memperoleh biasiswa daripada JPA.
Menurut Irwan tindakan memprotes itu tidak wajar memandangkan ia adalah satu keputusan kabinet.
"MCA jangan mahu kaitkan keputusan kabinet dengan nyatakan baru-baru ini bahawa pemuda MCA tidak akan bersama kerajaan lagi. Saya mahu tanya masa pilihan raya umum lalu MCA menang banyakkah? Maka saya minta MCA jangan ganggu apa yang sudah diputuskan biar JPA laksanakan tugas,"katanya.
Sehubungan dengan itu, menurut Irwan Perkasa menyokong penuh kenyataan Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Mohd Nazri Abdul Aziz bahawa kerajaan sedia memberi 12,000 biasiswa untuk membantu pelajar menamatkan ijazah pertama, sekaligus mengetepikan dakwaan Wee itu.
  We have all seen the filmstrip, a bed strewn with pillows, a shelf of cough syrups, a small kerosene stove and of course the bloody floor, the vestige of a final unseen encounter. Other snips and shreds add to the picture, the young boy who played with the Bin Laden children, the neighbour who saw the comings and goings of the elusive clan, the wife who never left the top floor

There was another house in Haripur we are told; they had been living there for five years it is asserted. From these fragments, the end of the world's most wanted man is to be constructed, a man that killed thousands but who instructed his own children to not join Al Qaeda, a man who leered at America for its imperialist sins but unthinkingly condemned Pakistanis to pay for them.
Osama Bin Laden chose a good place to die — a place where truth and history are constructed with imagination and passion nearly always defeats the facts.
Even as Pakistani television channels rant and rave at the lack of official statements on the incident, a public which is used to the manufacture of explanations has already produced what the government cannot. The whole thing was staged, one cadre will tell you, there was no Osama and no killing, they will insist. Where is the body and where is the picture they will question.
Others will present a slightly varied version; more accommodating of the truth, adding elements that would preserve their lifelong faith in the invincibility of the Pakistani military, of the omniscience of its intelligence agencies.READMORE http://melayukini786.wordpress.com/2011/05/25/makcik-hajjah-sitt-al-perkasa-dan-ibrahim-al-umno-pasangan-itu-seperti-pinang-dibelah-dua-kerana-mereka-saling-menyerupai/
