Kugan's Death = Steve Biko's?

While reading the coverage of police detainee A. Kugan's death, funeral , autopsy, claims by family of murder and eventually the A-G's classification of the case as murder, I was reminded of a historical piece whereby anti-apartheid activist Steve Biko was actually beaten to death by police although the police claimed it was hunger strike.

One similarity there is that while the police at Taipan and the one in South Africa claimed that the detainee died of lung or hunger, many people are convinced otherwise that the detainee suffered multiple torture wounds and indeed accusing the police for trying to cover up the brutality act.

On This Day on September 12 1977

Aha! I Knew It Will Happen!

Though not reported by the mainstream media, Malaysiakini has reported that ex-imam, Ramlan Porigi was fired by Jakim over the sodomy issue of Anwar and Saiful.

As anticipated, his appearance in a ceramah during the Permatang Pauh was the final straw for Jakim. The decision to sack him was made on the 20th.

I have already anticipated that it will happen and I was betting that a safety net / cum rescue plan was on the way to help Ramlan in case such event will happen.

I already figured that it is politically motivated as the Saiful sodomy issue was just to character assassinate Anwar Ibrahim.

Belated Greetings

Dear readers,

My apologies for not doing so as I do not have an Internet connection outside my KL house.

The Devil In Blue Uniform and The Persecution

I remembered that two weeks after the November 9 affair that the 23 people who were arrested were just let go without bail or nothing. And then following the police stopping the vigil on Sunday, they flip-flopped and decided to charge all of the 23.

I know some of the 23. Some from Penang, an MP, two state Assemblyman, a Malaysiakini videographer, a blogger, a frequent vigiler and of course my Barisan Rakyat buddy Gus of The Wharf. Tomorrow, they will be appearing at PJ court and they are likely to be released on bail since most of them will plead not guilty.

I don't know who actually decided to charge them. But all I know is that it is a thinly veil threat of the police and a prelude to a second Ops Lalang. Let's see who's from the The Devil that decides to show their faces and let's see who could be prosecuting / persecuting the innocent people. It's not the subordinates, but the superiors who think and see the wrong end of the pole. Or could it be that BN politcians ordered the police to do so to show to others that they play hero; they want revenge against loss in K-T or many other excuses?

Of course there's a first sign of hope as Malaysiakini videographer believes that the police tampered with the video footage shot on that night. If the video is withheld for a few more days and then you find out that is tampered, then the police is responsible.

Picture this if 1000 people attend a private function and all of them are arrested for just gathering there, then there's something wrong what the police is doing. They are not schoolteachers. They are jagas - and we actually hired them to help us out not to become bullies on the streets. It's like the story in the Bible where every good innocent people are persecuted by the forces of evil, in the epic final battle (see the Book of Revelations). If 20000 people get arrested over nothing by 4000 police, the prison cells in Malaysia will be fulled with people unnecessarily arrested.

Now we have a Police Chief that many believe is lying in the teeth to the people of Selangor. He said the guy died of asthma. Others said, he was abuse by police, so who's right? Not to worry, maybe we could hold his balls and release whatever that cannot go through normal channels press release style to the entire world.

Every week, there is this Gerak Khas police show that features our Norman Hakim (whose involved in the proximity case) and shows the police being good side and so on. Now I can't even decide whether to trust the police already now that they behave unruly and use many excuses in the name of the law.

I'd say that our friend is F.I.R.E.D. period!

Barack Obama's Indirect Warning To Leaders Including BN!

I've just finished reading the entire inauguration speech by new President Barack Obama and I was drawn by a posting by Hisham Rais that says that Obama indirectly has given a warning to hypocrite third world leaders.

The exact part of Obama's text:
To the Muslim world, we seek a new way forward, based on mutual interest and mutual respect. To those leaders around the globe who seek to sow conflict, or blame their society's ills on the West — know that your people will judge you on what you can build, not what you destroy. To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.
A few weeks before inauguration, Mr. Mahathir has written a letter to Obama and not many know that Obama wrote back a reply to the old man.

Since Malaysia is considered part of the Muslim world, the part above could also cover Malaysia and the phrase "cling to silencing of dissent" rings a warning to bigots like Botak Albar and Najib Razak as well as the weeping KT VIP. Sadly though, the MSM papers didn't have the balls to quote the paragraph above because if they do, the Home Ministry could be coming down hard on them as what they do to the Herald.

Hisham Rais's musing was as follows:

President Barack Obama dalam ucapan perlantikannya malam ini telah memberi amaran kepada pemimpin-pemimpin negara yang selalu menyalahkan Barat apabila mereka sendiri gagal mentabir negara. Obama meminta mereka melihat muka mereka dalam cermin dahulu.

Amaran ini adalah untuk pemimpin negara dunia ketiga seperti Madey.

Presiden Barack Obama juga telah mengingatkan pemimpin negara-negara didunia agar tidak menyalah gunakan kuasa dan mengamal rasuah.

Amaran seperti ini adalah untuk isteri Rosmah.

Clue Hunting Anyone?

Previously, I've mentioned in the post of When AAB Is Pushed Into A Corner. He'll Pull Off His Trump Card

Excerpt from my previous posting:
And then the final card could come in, from Abdullah Badawi: military intelligence. Initially bluffed by him, it really existed all along. It actually reveals the person who ordered the hit on Altantuya Shariibuu on the night of 19 October 2006. If Najib has constantly quoted that he doesn't know Altantuya, what about her alias as Minah? Other quarters had said that Najib introduced her to Razak Baginda.
A little bird drop by this morning and did let loose of something that is interesting. But to find it, it's outside Malaysia. It was said that Shangrila Hotel Singapore has an existing record between 2004 to 2006 where Najib, Altantuya and Razak Baginda spent a night or two there. It is believed at that time Altantuya was introduced to Razak Baginda by Najib.

If most Malaysians are kept in the dark about this, then maybe the neighbours in the south could know. If you are really interested in doing some detective work on your own and happen to be in the south, then you can try a shot at digging that thing. Chances are quite slim, since there's a confidentiality agreement that many employees dare not take.

And to my buddy Hawkeye who could be in SG now, you might want to take up the challenge...!

When AAB Is Pushed Into A Corner. He'll Pull Off His Trump Card

Spin Doctoring - Blaming AAB

Following the defeat at KT-election, numerous people within the BN quarters have started pointing fingers at Abdullah Badawi for being the weak person and selecting Wan Farid Salleh as candidate for the seat in KT. Many including those in Mahathir's camp find Wan Farid as the mere proxy of AAB given his connections to his family and his associate Patrick Lim.

Yesterday, Hadi Awang has asked Abdullah Badawi to change his mind and remain on as the PM. Many concur that he should stay on including RPK because not only he is the lesser of the two evils, but at least you have a captain to helm through during the economical downturn now rather than jumping ship at the first sign of trouble.

However, those in camp Najib thinks otherwise and now MSMs are ordered to do a spin on AAB. A spin on AAB, which is to say that the whole Kuala Terengganu mess is on Abdullah Badawi and not Najib. The MSMs are asked to deflect every accusation off Najib and hurl it instead to Abdullah Badawi. At this time, they are very keen to make sure that Abdullah Badawi sticks to his transition plan and have Najib come in by April 1 2009.

For instance, take a look at the Malaysian Insider piece that says KT loss is not a reflection of his leadership. In truth, it is to say that people do not want him to become PM. The phrase reflection is indirectly showing and pointing the finger at Abdullah Badawi.

The Trump Card

When an animal is pushed back to the wall, it will do anything to get out that means fighting very hard and savage. This is the effect that is seen coming at Abdullah Badawi by camp Najib.

However, Abdullah Badawi may have his trump card ready to be unleashed anytime in this span of two months.

Currently in Shah Alam, the High Court is still listening to the testimony of Azilah. Yesterday, Azilah revealed to the court that Musa Safri, Najib's ADC had asked Azilah to help his friend Razak Baginda (political analyst under Najib). The statement shows that Balasubramaniam's original declaration, not the revised one is indeed correct and it seems that the pieces revealed are coming in bit by bit.

This is to say that Azilah was correct all along. Today, on Malaysiakini, he has constantly insisted that whatever he said was never a lie. "We had no motive to kill Altantuya".

And then the final card could come in, from Abdullah Badawi: military intelligence. Initially bluffed by him, it really existed all along. It actually reveals the person who ordered the hit on Altantuya Shariibuu on the night of 19 October 2006. If Najib has constantly quoted that he doesn't know Altantuya, what about her alias as Minah? Other quarters had said that Najib introduced her to Razak Baginda.

Najib was indeed dragged into the mess and held by the balls from maybe AAB or someother people. They knew who killed Altantuya, even without referring to military intelligence.

Many people have expressed that they would rather see AAB continue on as PM. But not on Najib. Now that AAB is pushed to a corner with no way out, his camp could be fighting back savagely and the report is the finishing move. And it could happen in two months, with Najib would not survive after that.

Zionism 101 By Hisham Rais


Negara ini di tubuhkan oleh kuasa kolonial British. Negara ini adalah bekas tanah jajahan British. Parti politik yang berkuasa dalam negara ini pada awalnya menentang British tetapi kemudian bekerjasama dan bersekongkol dengan British.

British dan kaum Zionis ini telah membunuh, menangkap , memenjara dan menghalau keluar sesiapa sahaja yang menentang negara baru ini. Akhirnya kuasa kolonial British telah memberikan kemerdekaan. Semua ini berlaku sesudah tamatnya perang dunia ke dua.

Zionisma ialah satu fahaman perkauman – hegemoni satu bangsa. Zionisma membawa fahaman rasis yang percaya hanya bangsa mereka sahaja yang betul. Bangsa-bangsa lain adalah salah. Bangsa-bangsa lain akan dianggap bangsa kelas ke dua. Malah jika ada bangsa lain yang tinggal dalam negara mereka, bangsa asing ini wajib tunduk kepada kuasa politik hegemoni perkauaman. Zionisma adalah politik hegemoni satu bangsa.

Jika ada sesiapa yang berani mengkeritik negara hegemoni satu bangsa dan satu agama ini mereka akan dianggap musuh. Jika mereka dianggap musuh maka mereka boleh di penjara. Undang-undang kolonial British membolehkan warga di penjara tanpa bicara. Banyak penentang fahaman perkauman dan hegemoni satu bangsa ini telah di penjara. Ada yang berbelas-belas tahun. Ada yang telah digantung mati.

Negara Zionis ini sentiasa menggunakan AJENDA KESELAMATAN sebagai dasar utama dalam negara. Sesiapa yang cuba mengkritik negara hegemoni satu bangsa akan di anggap mengancam keselamatan. Apa sahaja yang cuba dilakukan oleh warga jika di tafsir bertentangan dengan fahaman hegemoni satu bangsa ini akan di anggap mengancam keselamatan negara.

Justeru jika ada tiga warga yang berkumpul mereka akan dianggap bahaya dan mengancam keselamatan negara. Ini kerana negara Zionis ini semenjak zaman British sentiasa dalam kedaaan perang. Walau pun telah lama merdeka undang-udang perang British ini masih terus berjalan.

Berkumpul secara aman tidak dibenarkan dalam negara Zionis. Ini akan dianggap memporak perandakan keselamatan awam. Semua perhimpunan akan di anggap perhimpuan haram – hanya parti Zionis dan penyokong-penyokong mereka sahaja yang boleh berkumpul dan berhimpun.

Jika ada perhimpunan berlaku walau pun dengan aman, jentera daulah – polis dan pencegah rusuhan – akan datang mengancam. Penangkapan terhadap perhimpuan aman adalah satu yang biasa berlaku dalam negara Zionis ini. Simbahan air asid adalah satu yang biasa kelihatan dalam negara Zionis. Peluru hidup juga digunakan untuk menembak dan menakutkan mereka yang berkumpul.

Bala tentera kaum Zionis hanya dipilih dari satu bangsa sahaja. Bangsa lain tidak akan dibenarkan memasuki bala tentera negara ini. Polis mereka juga dari satu bangsa. Mukhabarat - polis rashia - mereka mungkin ada bangsa-bangsa lain. Ini kerana mereka ingin menyamar masuk ke dalam masyarakat bangsa-bangsa lain untuk merisek.

Kekuatan negara Zionis ini bergantung kuat dengan polis-polis rashia. Mukhabarat Zionis ini ada di merata tempat. Dalam universiti, dalam masjid, di perhentian bas malah dimana-mana tempat awam akan kelihatan mukhabarat ini berkeliaran. Mereka menyamar sebagai orang biasa untuk mengutip maklumat jika ada sesiapa yang berani bersuara menentang hegemoni satu bangsa.

Negara hegemoni satu bangsa ini memiliki parlimen dan mengakui sebuah negara demokrasi berbanding dengan negara-negara lain. Tetapi parlimen negara ini tidak pernah berusaha untuk melupuskan undang-undang perang yang diwarisi dari zaman kolonial British dahulu. Undang-undang perang ini sentiasa ada dalam negara ini. Negara ini sentiasa dalam keadaan berperang.

Selain dari menganggap bahawa bangsa mereka sahaja yang betul – fahaman Zionisma juga menganggap agama lain adalah salah. Agama mereka adalah agama pilihan tuhan. Kitab-kitab suci orang lain dianggap tidak betul. Hanya kitab suci dan agama mereka sahaja yang membawa jalan ke syurga. Agama lain adalah ajaran sesat yang membawa ke neraka.

Negara Zionis ini mendapat sokongan ketenteraan dari negara-negara luar. Negara Zionis ini membeli berbilion-bilion ringgit peralatan senjata dari Amerika, Britain, Russia dan Peranchis. Kereta kebal, kapal terbang jet, kapal selam, senapang, pistol, gas pemedih mata, asid anti- rusuhan - semua alat persenjataan ini di bekalkan oleh negara luar. Semua senjata ini di beli kerana kaum Zionis tahu bahawa inilah satu-satu cara untuk mereka terus berkuasa.

Akhir-akhir ini kaum Zionis ini telah mula membuat alat-alat senjata sendiri. Semua ini dibuat kerana negara Zionis ini masih terus menerus dalam keadaan perang.

Salah satu sifat kaum Zionis yang amat menonjol ialah merampas tanah-tanah. Perampasan tanah-tanah ini terus menerus berlaku. Tahun demi tahun tanah akan di rampas. Tanah-tanah yang dirampas adalah tanah-tanah asli yang telah di teroka beratus-ratus tahun oleh penduduk tempatan. Ada tanah pertanian yang di rampas. Ada tanah perkampongan asli yang telah di rampas.

Kaum Zionis akan memberi alasan keselamatan jika mereka ingin merampas tanah. Pembangunan juga akan di jadikan alasan. Mendirikan empangan air , membuat jalan raya atau mendirikan penempatan bandar-bandar baru sering menjadi alasan untuk merampas tanah.

Pada awalnya undang-undang akan digunakan untuk merampas tanah-tanah ini. Jika gagal maka jentera polis dan tentera akan di bawa untuk merampas tanah peneroka. Polis-polis rashia akan mengancam. Ada tuan tanah yang akan dibeli. Jika gagal di beli maka tuan empunya tanah akan di ancam. Jika ancaman tidak berjaya maka akan berlaku tangkapan.

Tanah- tanah yang di rampas ini akan di berikan kepada penyokong kaum Zionis. Tanah- tanah pertanian subur yang telah di rampas ini akan di berikan kepada syarikat-syarikat yang menyokong fahaman hegemoni satu bangsa. Tuan-tuan pemilik tanah yang telah dirampas ini akan memberikan sokongan dana kepada kaum Zionis. Hotel-hotel, kondo dan apartmen mewah akan di dirikan di atas tanas yang telah di rampas.

Kaum Zionis akan melakukan diskriminasi terhadap bangsa-bangsa lain. Kaum Zionis mengamalkan diskriminasi untuk memastikan kuasa politik dan ekonomi terus di tangan mereka. Segala macam undang-undang akan diluluskan untuk memastikan hegemoni satu bangsa ini berterusan.

Kaum Zionis tidak akan mempedulikan pandangan masyarakat antarabangsa. Resolusi-resolusi badan-badan antrabangsa tidak di endahkan. Badan-bandan dunia diperlekehkan. Di dalam negara hanya pandangan yang bersetuju dengan politik Zionisma sahaja yang di benarkan. Jika ada kritikan yang muncul dari akhbar luar negara maka suara-suara ini akan dianggap benci kepada budaya bangsa kaum Zionis.

Kaum Zionis akan menuduh warga yang menentang hegemoni satu bangsa sebagai warga yang tidak patriotik, ajen negara asing atau telah keluar dari agama suci mereka dan mengikut ajaran sesat. Justeru itu negara Zionis ini mewajibkan warganya menggunakan kad pengenalan. Dalam kad pengenalan ini akan di letakan agama dan bangsa. Ini untuk memastikan kesucian bangsa mereka.

( Kita tidak perlu ke Gaza untuk melihat keganasan Zionis. Kita tidak perlu ke Tel Aviv untuk memahami Zionisma. Kita tidak perlu ke Jenin, Hebron untuk melihat tanah-tanah di rampas. Kita tidak perlu melihat Haram–al-Sharif untuk melihat tempat ibadat di runtuhkan. Kita tidak pergi ke Nablus untuk melihat rumah-rumah di runtuhkan. Kita tidak perlu melihat Ariel Sharon yang terlibat dalam pembunuhan.

Kita lihat Tasek Utara, Kampong Chu Badak, Kampong Berembang, tanah-tanah orang asli di Sabah dan Serawak yang dirampas. Kita lihat berapa banyak kuil Hindu yang telah dimusnah. Masjid dan surau yang telah diruntuhkan. Berapa buah gereja Orang Asal yang telah diruntuhkan.

Kita lihat bagaimana keterlibatan Najib Razak dalam kes pembunuhan Altantuya – ini tidak ada bezanya dengan pembunuhan Abu Jihad. Bukan Tzipi Livni Menteri Luar Israel sahaja yang mengahalau keluar pengkritiknya , Syed Hamid Menteri Luar Malaysia baru sahaja berkata sesiapa yang tidak suka kepada undang-undang negara ini sila tinggalkan negara ini.

Peluru hidup menembak penunjuk perasaan bukan hanya di Baitulmukadis tetapi di Memali dan Batu Buruk. Bukan Shin Bet sahaja yang mengintip di Birzeit University – Polis Cawangan Khas juga mengintip di semua universiti di Malaysia.

Jangan terlupa Bilik Rashia tahanan ISA tidak ada bezanya dengan yang di tahan di Facility 1391 di Israel.)

Jangan hanya menyokong yang jauh tetapi lupa yang di hadapan mata. Zionisma bukan hanya orang Yahudi. Zionisma adalah fahaman politik hegemoni satu bangsa dan satu agama. Zionisma adalah semua kerajaan zalim yang menindas warganya.


Do you see that BN the penyamun is doing that although they hated the Israelis for the war?

If they claim they do so, then you have to walk the talk. But this is not walk the talk!

PDRM Wanted So Badly To Stop The Vigils!

You Come In Like Nobody's Business

This is the second time that the police stopped the PJ vigil consecutively although it is clear that the place is a private property that has the City Council's consent of using it.

Tonight, it was intended to be a celebration for everyone following the Pakatan Rakyat's success at Kuala Terengganu by-elections. I wanted to take my brother to show them how it is like a weekly vigil. He just came to town for a visit or so.

I have already noticed 4 SBs at Lotus restaurant right at the beginning before the show gets started. Everyone wants to celebrate with arrivals of Pete, Bernard and Haris from KT.

This is the SB (in the middle) that carries the long tripod. I was absolutely sure that this SB was the one who called in the cops once the event kicks off. He was around for the last three weeks.

As usual the cops come in like coming to people's house without permission or if it is nobody's business. The OCPD was not the one last week but another one by the name of Junaidi and of course the district Chief Shukor Sulong was next to him but he didn't say anything. One thing I spotted is that most police officers do not have the serial numbers, only their names.

Two of us asked the OCPD of who is the boss. Arrogantly, Junaidi - the OCPD - boasted 'I'm am the Boss!!!!!' and thinks he was high and mighty. There was an outspoken man who lamented loudly on how the police doing the wrong job and told the police to disperse instead of people. The lamentation has brought applause from the participants there. But the police gave them time to pack up the things laid - tonight was pot luck dinner though.

Just look at those poor motorists being blocked by the cops. Don't they have anything better to do?

Anyhow, we went back to Lotus to have our potluck dinner. No point going further otherwise people will be trouble. The councilors were there to help but couldn't do so. Pity for those who had to be called in for work otherwise they would be transferred elsewhere.

What Action?

1. From what I heard, PDRM and IGP could be in a probably a lawsuit filed by 23-100 people over this problem with a group of lawyers to be filed at the High Court. PDRM could be paying the damages of millions of ringgit if the people wins.

2. I'm not sure, but I have a hunch that Khalid Bakar could be fired soon. If not him, the ones responsible like this Junaidi or Shukor Sulong could be hauled to I.A


Although it was stopped, but that doesn't mean we celebrate at Lotus with food. Elaine, a frequent vigil participant bumped to me

E: (To Kevin) He look's familiar.
M: Yep.
E: Is he your friend?
M: That's my brother.
E: So you're twins!
M: Nope. .

Ah...the food galore.

But I couldn't go fishing tonight despite meeting the regulars. I had to send poor Kevin back home. He didn't have enough rest. I really wanted to write this, read the new book and have a good rest as it's work day tomorrow!

Last Words

I remembered the famous line by the fictional protagonist which says "DO NOT FUCK US." That's one thing. But now, with that I don't think I'll trust the police. The police are absolutely lousy not because of the subordinates but the superiors that I believe that is creating problems in the name of law.

I don't trust you anymore, PDRM. You're giving me a lousy perception to the public!

Another Political Obituary

Today, the people at Kuala Terengganu has put another nail on the regime that has promised greatness to the country but instead oppressed, plundered and robbed the good people of Malaysia of things that every citizen should deserved

PAS' Abdul Wahid Endut won the by-election with the majority of 2631 votes.

According to Malaysiakini, the final tally is as follows:

Abdul Wahid Endut - 32883
Wan Farid Salleh - 30252
Azharudin Mamat - 193

The credit must go to the minority community there as they are the kingmakers in choosing their reps. Now that things are done, En. Wahid must walk the talk, do as what they have promised to the voters of KT.

Prediction: 3000-vote majority for PAS

I don't really think that PAS can win that big as BN will do all its cheats to win the by-election. They are targeting a 1000-vote majority for them, but taking into account of other factors, I'd say that PAS would win this by 3000.

Numerous reasons are:

1.The Malay votes are either split at 50-50 or in PAS 60-40. That leaves the Chinese to be kingmakers.
2. The chinese complained that given $300 as Ang Pow doesn't do good.
3. The PAS territory people find Wan Farid as unforgivable because he started the Batu Buruk incident - two hours prior.
4. Oil royalty
5. Threats from the Mayor and MB.

Ang Pow, Ah? We Can Leak This To Al-Jazeera, CNN, etc...!

And then Shabery could get embarassed. I remembered a text message that was sent by Ku Li following the Anwar / Shabery debate that said "He used to be my secretary at S46..I'm so embarassed"....

I saw a piece by Haris that said that details of two reporters, one whom I knew while covering the Lingamtape trial last year. They were given an envelope of RM 300 ringgit. When they asked the people who gave them of the purpose, the people simply do not know except of course doing their job. And there was a scuffle as seen in this link by Malaysiakini. So far, I noticed that it is the only place that has this report, not on MSM.

And a report has been lodged to the police. I also heard that UMNO has tripled the angpow of $1000 to be given on election day tomorrow. People would come in with votes already marked with BN and the empty vote paper is given to UMNO agents and they get $1000. That is more on those Malay voters. I say it's 50-50.

The Chinese are some unhappy that despite being offered $300 per red packet, many misfortune would be fallen them. Do you remember Ahmad Said said "vote for BN and we'll be nice. Else we won't be nice to you 10 fold..."

Intimidation isn't it. Ugly, but if I am to leak this to Al-Jazeera or CNN, how would you feel?

If We Expose This To International Press...

BN will get more embarassed and amok. I've picked up some of the news pieces from the on the ground scenes and thought it should be given to international media like Al-Jazeera, CNN and etc.. since the MSM has no absolutely no balls and anything they publish besides santized ones faced the wrath of the 4th floor boys.

It's just less than a few days away from the big by-election and the BN has no more cards and aces to play with. With that, there will resort into many dirty tactics and intimidation to get them out of the mess.

On The Ground Recaps:

1. On Nomination day the MSM reported that the number of BN supporters are twice as much than those in the Opposition. Wrong. The facts on the ground revealed otherwise that Opposition supporters are 5 times more than the number of BN people, which was estimated to be at 7000.

2. The Chinese voters are apparently given a red packet of RM 300 each by BN to vote for them.

3. 7000 police men were deployed, instead of doing their proper duty it seems that from initial intelligence reveals that they are the phantom voters.

4. The police on certain occassions tried to shutdown opposition speeches.

5. A DAP bilik gerakan in KT was forced to close down as according to the landlord, the MB Ahmad Said gave a directive to shut the place down. DAP had to look for somewhere else.

6. Primula Park employees were asked to surrender their MyKad as part of a lucky draw exercise where the lucky ones will get to dine with Rosmah. However, it is a pretence to make the employees voting for Barisan. Anyone found voting opposition will lose their jobs. This also applies to employees of Petronas or state government.

7 The police has apparently gave an instruction not to allow Raja Petra into entry of a certain club given of his reputation, feared by the government as spilling the toxic to oceans. The police attempted to get his IC but Pete refuses to give in unless the commanding officer shows up. But the CO didn't do so.

8. Wan Farid Salleh , the BN candidate refused outright to debate on the oil royalty. Seems that people knew from the moment he said no that he was responsible of siphoning money out of the state to the Fed.

9. Cyber troopers from UMNO are actively doing the phishing thing, meaning getting readers to websites posed as real ones in attempting to steal usernames, passwords so that they can manipulate to their own ends as the wishes of the masters.

So far the intelligence has indicated that the Malays are split in choosing UMNO and PAS. So the decisive vote will come from the remaining 11% of Chinese and Malays. UMNO remains silent and the lapdog by the name of MCA starts to make the issue of hudud just to spook the Chinese on the PAS matter.

But the hudud issue is brought to the close with a word from Lim Guan Eng. No way will hudud be implemented if one of the three parties say no to the proposal. So now, the issue has backfired on MCA who still uses Chew Mei Fun to keep raising that issue. Of course UMNO cannot intervene, for if they do so, people might call them anti-Islam or something. DAP and PAS were constantly being asked of the hudud stance, but have we listened to the UMNO MCA stance?

According to Malaysiakini, hudud is now no longer an issue in KT now, so it means whatever BN does right now is totally useless. And now, they resort into scarring tactics. A few bus load of people from Temerloh and KL were brought in as part of supporting BN and they are backed by PEKIDA - those gangsters involved in the Ijok by-election. Coupled with Khairy telling people of the 'vote BN or else....' tone, people are getting very angry at them.

During the period of PAS ruling the state in 1999-2004, people benefitted better from various edicts from PAS and the 11% minority had a sense of respect for them. But they didn't get funding as the Federal government was angry and refusal to give is considered a retribution for not voting for BN. The public people particularly human rights activists never like Wan Farid because being the deputy minister of Home Affairs, he's largely responsible for ordering the police to clamp down on vigils, protests, opposition campaigns, etc..

Unfortunately, this was not published in MSMs because a publication of such revelation means total embarassment to the nation and BN through the eyes of third parties numerous accusation by groups saying that Malaysia doesn't do that and etc.. For example, like today, the government has ordered Samy Vellu and the Indian gang to counter Hindraf, but if Hindraf was right and government still in the wrong despite repeated denial, they will be embarassed.

Yes, most of us know the dirty tricks and bags that BN will do in the three days or so and I once thought with a few people that publishing this to the international press is making them beg to their knees because it's checkmate to them. But you have heard Syed Hamid echoing what Ahmad Ismail said but saying emigrate to other countries. Does that mean he shares the same sentiment of calling other people pendatang?

Police Stops PJ Vigil

The vigil didn't last long. This week, delCapo slotted in for Haris and Bernard. Both are away for the coverage in the KT by-election.

Less than 100 turned up today and just 15 minutes on the way, the police came in here like if it is their own property. The fact is that they have entered a private property that belongs to the City Council.

The CO who barked the order to disperse one Arunjaidi (?) but the real district chief, Shukor Sulong was on his left. They called for dispersal and the crowd dispersed after singing the national anthem.

We spotted about 8 SBs at the Lotus restaurant opposite. I spotted another two when I parked my car at the parking lot.

Seems that this matter could be brought to the attention of the City Council for the police has trespassed private property. I had a brief chat with a SB who lamented the need to be on standby and wasting extra time on this kind of 'unnecessary matters.' But they had to do their job or they faced transfer or sack. So it's not them that we should blame, but their superiors.

We can see a kick later on that asshole...

They Are Nothing More Than Americans. Just The Same.

While fishing at the Wharf yesterday, I have been informed by someone that 21 people were arrested in a anti-war protest against Israel organized by PSM.

According to Malaysiakini, three notable politicians arrested including Charles Santiago, Klang MP, Dr. Nasir Hashim and S. Arutchelvam. Not only that, the number includes 8 women and a 12-year old child, and two from SUARAM. The turnaround was said to be at around 200.

The police were quick to declare that the assembly as illegal - using Police Act 1967 as an excuse although it was clear that the UMNO organized assembly went ahead last Friday and with 5000 people -co incided by Friday prayers. Indeed this is deemed as a double standard practiced by police. But everyone in Malaysia is protesting against the atrocities of Israel against the Palestinians!

There are some who quickly explained that it was illegal because of no permit. But on the other hand UMNO organized gathering went ahead even without a permit. Even if you try to obtain a permit, chances are 30 percent to 0 with police will reject it outright.

So what we learned so far is:

1. The police will clamp down on anything that not aligned to UMNO / BN.
2. Although these UMNO men claim that they support Palestinian welfare, they are still the same thing as the Israelis. Parallel this in the Malaysian context, they are pretty the same as the Americans.
3. Although the police were quick to assure that there are no phantom voters in the KT by-election, we have word that they are the ones. There was one hotel that was booked before the nomination day but in the end no one turned up.

I remembered watching a video by RPK that said of campak BN to South China Sea. Well, the people will have to reiterate their message to them. They are not listening and those hardcore ones - take the Malacca UMNO ones are ought to be given high priority special treatment.

Supposedly Rich But Actually a Poor State

My other blog buddies were in Terengganu since Monday to cover the 10 days of campaigning before the big event next Saturday. By chance, today they visited a few places, visited a few prominent man that includes a ex-Lord President and a a few pictures that shows how the fat pigs of Barisan Nasional reap the things that are supposedly for a few people.

I will not elaborate further but instead you can visit either Haris' or Pete's posting.

I will elaborate two pics.

I visited KT once back in April 2005 on the way back to Kuala Lumpur during the start of the semester break after having completed a 3 day trip in Pulau Redang. From up north Besut, we traveled by a bus all the way down to Kuala Terengganu to stop by for lunch - which was on the way to Kuantan.

Of course, during the time when the bus travelled along the main road to Kuantan, I've seen many houses which was in a bad state until now.

Since Terengganu is an oil rich state, I supposed people there should be enjoying a good lifestyle there and living in a proper environment instead of the thing above. Where the hell is the 20 billion wang ehsan since 1974? Gone. Misused by cronies like Wan Mokthar (Dynas' father)

There should many of these houses but right now only the elite and those under the alignment of UMNO gets it.

Apparently why BN won Terengganu is partly because of phantom voters but also threats to Petronas employees - they are threatened with sack if they are found voting for the opposition. That was their fear factor, ace in the hole.

There is nothing big to gain from voting but the by voting, it is doing two things at once. First, it is to tell Barisan Nasional that they still do not get it. Secondly, it merely reduces the majority and tells people that they do not want Najib as PM.

Satyam Chairman Quits On Scandal

From BBC:

The boss of Satyam, India's fourth-biggest software firm, has quit after revealing false accounts including some $1bn (£663m) in fictitious reserves.

Chairman Ramalinga Raju apologised and said "the gap in the balance sheet has arisen purely on account of inflated profits" during several years.

He said he was subjecting himself to the laws of the land and would "face the consequences".

India's benchmark index fell nearly 7% on the news, as Satyam stock shed 82%.

In a letter to the board of directors, Mr Raju said that neither he nor the managing director took any money from the company and did not benefit in financial terms following the "inflated results".

He added that no board member had been aware of the situation the firm was in.

"What started as a marginal gap between actual operating profits and the one reflected in the books of accounts continued to grow over the years," said Mr Ramalinga's statement, which was sent to the stock exchange.

"It was like riding a tiger, not knowing how to get off without being eaten," he said.

Satyam specialises in business software and benefited from the IT outsourcing boom.


"We have to go beyond this letter and find out what actually has happened," the Securities and Exchange Board of India told reporters.

"This is an issue which has very serious implications... It also raises the issue of authenticity of accounts that have been audited and certified by the auditors."

'Fictitious assets'

The news comes after plans to acquire Maytas Properties and plans to acquire a 51% stake in Maytas Infra failed.

"The aborted Maytas acquisition deal was the last attempt to fill the fictitious assets with real ones," said the letter.

Mr Raju said a task force investigating the failed deal had been set up. He also recommended to the board that Merrill Lynch be entrusted with the talk of "quickly exploring" merger opportunities.


I actually saw a fax transcript of the entire letter to the board that I stumbled upon through my colleague Alfred. The faxed transcript has those quoted passages mentioned below and it did say that it is highly believed to be an insider's job that caused the mess. However, I do not have the exact thing to reproduce here.

Satyam is ranked number 4 of all the IT firms in India according to a top business magazine in India as of at the end of last year. My firm was ranked 28th overall. This is largely due to the workforce amount - 53 thousand in 63 countries.

KT Nomination Day Highlights

Three candidates were confirmed by the EC to be contesting in the upcoming by-election to be held next Saturday.

The Star reported that there were 30000 BN supporters with 15000 PR supporters. However, the turnover is a lie. The actual ground reports revealed that the number of PR supporters outnumber the BN supporters at least 5 to 1. The turnover for BN is roughly 4000 to 6000 voters, as quoted by an UMNO insider.

Most of the 4000 to 6000 BN supporters are from PEKIDA and PEWARIS, the factions that are part of the pro-ISA march end of November last year.

The EC commission has refuted that heavy presence of police indicate that there will be incoming of phantom voters. However, I have been informed that the number of phantom voters could be at 6000 and those phantom voters could be the police themselves.

According to Malaysiakini, the PAS and PR team will have to convince the 12 percent of non-Muslim voters that they do not just represent their interest but their welfare. MCA, Gerakan and non-UMNO BN component parties have been telling them of and playing the racial issues of with promises of BN protecting their interests there.

This example picture taken on that day by my friend Haris shows of racial harmony and respect of PAS to their non-Malay friends. The highlight is during the 1999-2004 period when PAS run the state. And I was told that the Malays are astonished to hear the Terengganu non-Malay friends speaking very good Malay as par as their standard, even their slangs as well.

Chances are PAS supporters will find Wan Farid as unforgivable as he was involved in shady things such as RM 6 billion wang ehsan in 8 years, his brother amassing commission from Monsoon Cup, and the worst of all, they believed that he was responsible for starting the Batu Burok incident two hours prior.

Many picked Wahid to win the election as he is a low-profile candidate and clean, whereas Wan Farid is noted for many incidents and scandals there as well. Najib said today that if Wan Farid wins, he would be reappointed as the Deputy Home Minister, which some groups believed, including Mat Sabu that he was responsible for ordering the police to clamp down on any elements or campaigns that is non-aligned to BN.

Meanwhile, the EC started two teams to cover the campaigning period. Quote:

EC deputy chairman Datuk Wan Ahmad Wan Omar said each team would have an EC officer, a police officer, a local authority representative and representatives of the contesting candidates.

He said the teams are empowered to act if candidates or their agents were found to have violated the Election Offences Act 1954 and code of conduct for campaigning like resorting to personal attacks, touching on sensitive issues involving race, religion or royalty or defacing or stringing up campaign posters in prohibited places.

There's something not right here really.

America Making A Quick Buck Out Of War

According to Malaysiakini, Israel has started crossing and invading the Gaza Strip, with intention of eliminating Hamas. It is now two weeks since the first strike on December 27.

Of course, most of us know that Israel is an extension of America in the Middle East, and they are the proponents of the foundation of the state in 1948 - the first sign towards Armageddon as mentioned in the Bible.

America, being one of the big five that has veto powers, has blocked the UN Security Council action that calls for immediate ceasefire between Israel and Hamas. That is already expected.

Remember that the money-making in US is built on the legacy of weapons like A-Bomb, and wars like Vietnam War, and etc.. frankly, this war is on the other hand is allowing them to make a quick buck out the current economical crisis that they are facing right now. If they do not do so, they ceased to become a economical superpower in the world and they would lose to upcoming nations like China and India.

The major mistake committed to them was done by Nixon in 1971, when he broke the Bretton Woods System II, no longer making the dollar bound by gold. By doing so, exponentially, America has started borrowing a lot of money - close to 40 years, it is already $14 trillion and they are not able to pay back. But America is arrogant and threaten sanctions, war since they have the greatest military might right now, if nations do not follow their style. Iran is always in their gunsights since they are always intending to trade their oil with Euros (since they are more stable)

Not even that measure could save them. It was said that the dollar could collapse permanently by May / June and in place comes AMERO - the continental equivalence of EURO. This Gaza Strip invasion (under the pretext of hunting Hamas) is to buy them extra time and getting a quick buck out of it.

Correspondence Between Dr. M and Obama

On New Year's Day, Dr. Mahathir has written a letter to President-elect Barack Obama. The full text of the letter is as follows (reproduced from


Dear Mr. President,

I did not vote for you in the Presidential Election because I am a Malaysian.

But I consider myself one of your constituents because what you do or say will affect me and my country as well.

I welcome your promise to change. Certainly your country, the United States of America need a lot of changes.

That is because America and Americans have become the best hated people in the world. Even Europeans dislike your arrogance. Yet you were once admired and liked because you freed a lot of countries from conquest and subjugation.

It is the custom on New Year's day for people to make resolutions. You must have listed your good resolutions already. But may I politely suggest that you also resolve to do the following in pursuit of Change.

1) Stop killing people. The United States is too fond of killing people in order to achieve its objectives. You call it war, but today's wars are not about professional soldiers fighting and killing each other. It is about killing people, ordinary innocent people by the hundreds of thousands. Whole countries will be devastated.

War is primitive, the cavemen's way of dealing with a problem. Stop your arms build up and your planning for future wars.

2) Stop indiscriminate support of Israeli killers with your money and your weapons. The planes and the bombs killing the people of Gaza are from you.

3) Stop applying sanctions against countries which cannot do the same against you.

In Iraq your sanctions killed 500,000 children through depriving them of medicine and food. Others were born deformed.

What have you achieved with this cruelty? Nothing except the hatred of the victims and right-thinking people.

4) Stop your scientists and researchers from inventing new and more diabolical weapons to kill more people more efficiently.

5) Stop your arms manufacturers from producing them. Stop your sales of arms to the world. It is blood money that you earn. It is un-Christian.

6) Stop trying to democratize all the countries of the world. Democracy may work for the United States but it does not always work for other countries.

Don't kill people because they are not democratic. Your crusade to democratize countries has killed more people than the authoritarian Governments which you overthrew. And you have not succeeded anyway.

7) Stop the casinos which you call financial institutions. Stop hedge funds, derivatives and currency trading. Stop banks from lending non-existent money by the billions.

Regulate and supervise your banks. Jail the miscreants who made profits from abusing the system.

8) Sign the Kyoto Protocol and other international agreements.

9) Show respect for the United Nations.

I have many other resolutions for change which I think you should consider and undertake.

But I think you have enough on your plate for this 2009th year of the Christian Era.

If you can do only a few of what I suggest you will be remembered by the world as a great leader. Then the United States will again be the most admired nation. Your embassies will be able to take down the high fences and razor-wire coils that surround them.

May I wish you a Happy New Year and a great Presidency.

Yours Sincerely,

Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad

(Former Prime Minister of Malaysia)

Of course this is what we've seen. However, what caught my attention is that I was told that Mr. Obama has apparently written a reply back to Dr. M himself but I had some doubts on the certain paragraphs of the letter that was written. Looking at that style of writing, I find it hard to accept that it's Barack's writing.

Obama's reply is as follows:


Dear Mr. Former Prime Minister,

I know you wouldn't vote for me even if you could...just my gut feel, garnered from your writings. What a way to start a letter. Rather negative and unfriendly, if you permit me to volunteer. I hope you are feeling just right and not under the weather despite your monthly injections.

Come again, I am aware that you did pay big bucks to have a word with Bush and in return, you kinda bush-whacked him and America. No? As to affecting you and your country, this is quite a motherhood statement.

I rallied my people with “YES WE CAN”….that sir, is not a promise. It is a commitment. Promises can be broken easily. Let me recall that when you were Prime Minister you changed the rules that made it difficult for anyone to challenge your premiership. They had to have a certain amount of nominations. Recently you reneged on that and told UMNO to abandon that policy.

Of course, the US of A needs a lot of changes. We change our President every 5 years. American’s will NOT allow me to be their President for more than two terms…10 years at most and not 22 years.

Your young country needs changes too. For a start, clean up your comical electoral roll; that laughable but devious postal vote thing; the corruption, which UMNO euphemistically label as money politics that you recently accused your own ex-party of being smeared with; that perverted ISA; your corrupt cops and toothless ACA; your blemished judiciary……I do not want to believe that you started this, but I am reliably informed that .......; blogs in your country also revealed that your country does not allow its citizens, opposed to the Government, to have free assembly and cannot ride bicycles and burn candles. Lets not get into what the pot called the kettle but do ponder on this saying of yore: Physician, heal thyself….(before dispensing medicine so liberally.)

Admittedly America needs a change too and we all live in glass houses. YES? If changes do not happen, you can be sure that my people will kick me off the White House! There can be no such thing as hanging on for two decades.

Best hated….now that is something I am learning…. like saying “same difference” sir yeah?.... most hated I have heard. Yes arrogance is a no-no, yes? Like how your arrogant coalition lost 5 states and they still continue to be arrogant.

Making resolutions….that is a very western culture….you still believe in these yellow culture resolutions stuff… the way….I do not make resolutions….I make commitments. Resolutions are for the weak-willed.

Sir is this a coincidence? Your good friend Mugabe send me these 10 pointers too. It is not important who the original author is, but I assure you that Congress and not I, as President, will deliberate, decide on or reject your generous advice.

I greatly appreciate your Christian thoughts.

I do not wish to be a great leader….Hitler was a great leader…..I just want to be a GOOD leader.

And same to you, sir.

Yours cordially,

Barack Obama,


Revisiting The History of Abraham

Many of us have critcized Israel for being brutal in invading the Gaza Strip for the sake of attacking the Hamas group whom the Israelis brand them as one thorn in their flesh.

In the one week since the siege began last Saturday, the body count of Palestinian people have increased from one person to hundreds. Most of the atrocities are committed by bigots in the name of religion. The elusive kingdom of heaven where all can live together has yet to be seen. And I find sorrow when innocent people are killed for nothing.

I am for sure there is some hate between Muslims and Christians / Jews and vice versa. But we seem to have forgotten that these three religions come from the same root, that is the teachings of Abraham. We seem to have forgotten that the fundamentals of practice comes from the teachings of Abraham. Tracing back the history, Abraham is the patriach of the Judaism, Christianity and Islam, his famous two sons, Ishmael and Isaac would become the ancestors of Jesus and the Prophet Muhammad.

The solution to the problems between the two races is to revisit the history of Abraham and gain the understanding that could be part of solving the problem of the world.

Look at the key moments that demonstrates the parallel of respect with all the three religions:

1. Although his biological mother is Hagar and Isaac's is from Sarah, Ishmael would play with his younger half-brother without any prejudice or whatsoever. This is to say that there is no bigotry of religions.

2. When Abraham was asked by Sarah to expel Ishmael and Hagar to the desert of Paran, Abraham refused at the beginning as Ishmael was very dear to Abraham - he loved the boys very much. But he relented when God told him that He will take care of the boy for he would be a founder of a great nation. This is to say that both religions fall under one god (as if Abraham's love for the two boys as Islam / Christianity shares the common one God.)

3. As history says, the spot where Abraham left Ishmael and Hagar is the exact spot where the Holy Kabaa in Mecca is built later by Abraham and the adult Ishmael. Later, the children of Isaac (his brother) would also pay a visit to the Kaaba and Ishmael. Ishmael's daughter would marry his nephew, Esau.

4. The Quran acknowledges and mentions Jesus a few times and the Book of Isiah ( chapter 42 in the Bible) mentions of the Prophet.

Where has the respect of men against the fellow men?

What I got on New Year's Eve was a reprieve.

I learnt that the entire system is 50% confirmed with tweaks in one module and the module that I was involved still has stability problems. They spotted one problem where searching for Customer was not running and I admit that I made a misjudgment that day.

So that problem was ironed out and there's still more things to do. For today, the C and R team are off day as they are fully assured of stability by the QA department. But not for me as there's still things to sort out.

So I consider that as a reprieve and I heard that we have until Monday for another demo.

I never wanted anything for New Year, just a reprieve. 2009 is considered a tough period for all of us. I never get to enjoy things as other people do for the last two months. Some friends were asking me, why in a dull mood, I only told them, it's the deadline. Or a better answer would be to write to my boss in Singapore to find out!

It's On! Wan Farid vs Syed Azman

There is no doubt that the contest for Kuala Terengganu is definitely between Wan Farid Salleh and Syed Azman.

Although Malaysiakini has yet to confirm this but it did mention that the PAS candidate narrows down to Mustafa Ali and Syed Azman. But if you read my previous article titled, Candidate Selection Dilemma For KT By-Election " you will notice that the guessing is good as right.

No doubt Mat Sabu, though very popular, but he was dropped because voters there wanted someone from the native state. In this case, both Syed Azman and Mustafa Ali are from the native state, but Syed Azman is much better pick for he can reach out to the middle-age and younger generation. Also, being an MP from 1999-2004 is a bonus for him.

PAS is now all out to go and win it. With the Batu Burok incident that was sparked by BN and other things, these are those few things that could swing voters attention to PAS.
