The PKFZ had more than 50 investors involved in various activities, ranging from manufacturing to trading, logistics and general services. One of the world’s largest manufacturers of sub-sea oil and gas equipment, Aker Solutions of Norway, came to the PKFZ in 2007 and positioned Port Klang as its base for the Asia-Pacific region. Efforts in promoting the PKFZ as the preferred logistics and distribution hub were beginning to bear fruit, with the emergence of the London Metal Exchange and cotton distribution hubs in the PKFZ. The potential growth of cargo in the zone from investments and spin-off activities was expected to contribute much to the future thoughput of Port Klang and the economic development of Pulau Indah.”
WHAT SHIT ARE U TALKING ABVOUT?? MAHATOY'S SON SAID THERE IS INCREASED FOREIGN INVESTMENT, AND U SAID THERE ARE INCREASED AND SMOOTH HANDLING...THE TWO OF U COME FROM THE SAME BOAT, THE BEE END SINKING ONE!

We have been puzzling why there is an exodus of members jumping ship........those pariahs who joined UMNO are finding it difficult to enrich themselves being members of PR because of responsibility, transparency and no hanky panky policies. In other words, there is very little room for them to extend their pockets and as a result, the chances are better if they jump ship as quickly as possible. They have the ship to ptotect them should they find themslves in trouble with MACC over corruption scandal.
He added that “While the confidence for Barisan was there, the general election must also be based on careful planning, hard work and commitment at all levels. All these things are factors which are important. Although the mood today is definitely for Barisan, we do have to go through the necessary planning and preparations in making sure that the coalition is prepared for it,”
MONGOLIAN C4, YOU GOT NO BALLS!!!!
OOOOOPS! YOU HAVE BALLS ONLY FOR FOREIGN BEAUTIES.....ENJOY THEM AND DEPOSE THEM....
he has no confidendo to call for an election..with so many scandals and conspiracies hanging over his head. He will have to think 10 times before make his decision. He is already a goner... just trying to salvage whatever thats left of this garbage party.
UNLESS he is god..!!!!
UNLESS he is greater than god..!!
UNLESS he has made a deal with god..!!
UNLESS he can turn the RAHMAN prophecy around like he is god..!!
UNDERSTAND kedai runcit ...!!!! typical umno HOG...!!!!
UNLESS he can be forgiven by god..!!
Datuk Ibrahim Ali who became sole independent Member of Parliament (MP) in March 2008 believes that independent members can ‘sting’ and decide the outcome in Dewan Rakyat.
The role played by independent members has caught the public attention with the addition of three from Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) who quit to become independent MPs.
Ibrahim, the MP for Pasir Mas said as independent members, they could make decisions on their own without being tied to any political parties. “As such, we can voice more freely and speak from the heart for the good of the people and country,” he told Bernama here today.
He was commenting on the resignation of PKR MPs Datuk Seri Zahrain Hashim (Bayan Baru), Tan Tee Beng (Nibong Tebal) and Mohsin Fadzli Samsuri (Bagan Serai) to become independent MPs.
The important role of independent MPs surfaced when Ibrahim was blamed for not backing Dr Tan Seng Giaw’s (DAP) failed bid for the post of Dewan Rakyat Deputy Speaker in April 2008.
Ibrahim’s name also came up in June 2008 during the incident of block voting to approve the Supplementary Supply Bill (2007) 2008. Barisan Nasional (BN) prevailed with 92 votes against 60 for the opposition and one abstention, again all eyes were trained on Ibrahim.
Ibrahim said independent MPs could also decide on the party that should get a two third majority in parliament by throwing support behind the party of their choice. “BN is only short of seven seats (presuming that the four independents are for BN) and if 10 more PKR MPs quit, then there is possibility that BN will regain two third majority in Dewan Rakyat,” he said.
“I will not be lonely anymore now that there are several independents,” Ibrahim said when commenting a statement by Selangor Menteri Besar Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim that a block of independent MPs would not become reality. “Anything can happen in politics,” Ibrahim said.
He also slammed Khalid for saying that he would not be able to cooperate with Tan Tee Beng. “How does Khalid know what’s in my heart? PKR likes to jump to conclusion. It should not be that way (non-cooperation with Tan). I have always been misunderstood.”
Ibrahim refuted claims that independent MPs are easily swayed adding it is only a perception. “In making political decisions, independents and those from political parties are the same. All have their own interest in mind.”
The vocal MP said although he is an independent, as a politician, he could not discount joining political parties in future.
When $$ beckons, people like you can sting or sell out anyone. GE13, we will see how you sting.
Sting from venomous MPs are fatal to our next generation! They are not using their position to safeguard the country's future but to destroy it for own gains.
Ibrahim Ali & his PERKASA are popular with racism. He is not fighting for Malay rights, instead he's always provoking the Malays to hate other races in our "1 Malaysia" & still, the "1 Malaysia" chief En.Najib just keeps his mouth shut when this PERKASA frog runs any racist campaign. This frog is no longer "laku" in Kelantan & in the view of other races. Crazy frog.
What was your achivements over the years as an independent MP since you betrayed PAS ?
I could only see your racial sentiments of hate and fear that could cause misunderstanding and could even trigger a civil war .
you are no independent you depend on umno and your fight for Ketuanaan Malayu is for Political mileage and fame When will you stop your arrogant ways for power ?
you are umno's tool for segregation and instigation you are sick.... Ibrahim Ali !!!
Be a good Malaysian instead not an independent MP you can never benefit the public at all !!!
who do you intend to STING !!!
To all Rakyat,
Please stay together and kick out all this BEGGAR's out in GE13 and any by-election. The real power is in our Rakyat hands and please ensure the corrupted gang are out of office.

ANOTHER BAD APPLE TO BE TOSSED OUT OF THE PAKATAN

THEY ARE RIGHTEOUS LEADERS
Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein (picture) said the pledge of loyalty taken by 12 Members of Parliament from the Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) in Petaling Jaya, Selangor today raises a question about the party, especially when several (PKR) elected representatives left the party recently.
The Umno vice-president, who is also the Home Minister, said the loyalty pledge showed that the party actually had problems to the extent that it had to force its elected representatives to take the pledge.
“Why must they go to such an extent? Maybe the people themselves can gauge the severity of the problems in the party where the people who are loyal are asked to take a pledge. Does it mean that those who don’t take the pledge are not loyal to the PKR?” he told reporters after chairing his ministry’s post-cabinet meeting, here today.
Hishammuddin, who is also surprised by the move made by the PKR Member of Parliament (MP) who resigned from the party, said however that the Barisan Nasional (BN) and Umno could not rely on the weaknesses of the opposition parties to win the trust of the people.
“The public out there is going to judge us not by the weakness of the opposition but the strength of BN and Umno. So it is incumbent on us to continue to deliver to the public,” he said.
The MP for Bagan Serai, Mohsin Fadzli Samsuri, 65, today announced that he was leaving the PKR and would become an independent MP with immediate effect.
Mohsin Fadzli is the third MP from the PKR to have left the party within a period of less than one month after the resignations by Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim (Bayan Baru) and Tan Tee Beng (Nibong Tebal).
Besides Mohsin Fadzli, Zahrain and Tan, former Penang deputy chief minister I, Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin, had also left the PKT
We do not trust what you say, Hisham! We do not trust whatever UMNO says, we will work harder as Malaysians to ensure we vote you out come the next GE! Peoples Power will see us through! After the end of the PKR Parliamentarians leaving, it is the turn of those from UMNO leaving! Those from East Malaysia, MCA, will leave. Just take care of your own before you start jumping in triumph! The Parliamentarians who left PKR today are like prostitutes, selling to the highest bidder! And UMNO/BN are those who are doing the bidding!
So Hishamuddin, what is the status of the Nasir Safar police reports ? Are you still investigating? We are not interested in your opinion of PKR matters when you don't seem able to do even your own job which includes prosecuting Nasir Safar. We have not forgotten, in case you were hoping we have.
PKR MP Loyalty pledge may be questionable, it is still better than the loyalty pledge of most BN MPs to the country where they are supposed to uphold the rule of law and betterment of the country. Instead, they only do most to line their own pockets.
Just look at the Imported Fish container fiasco, the Touch n Go smart card scheme (where they are reducing coverage hours for topup while good at scheming consumer) to name a couple.
PR MP can't do much of corruption. Those who think they can may have decided to 'frog' over to the lucrative side against the rakyat.
I think even if PKR MPs may be lesser, but at least we know they are for the rakyat. And the froggies, your career in politics are over. Hope you do get a big chunk from the useless chief pirates. We may catch up with you after the rakyat take over the government from the these 'pirates of the straits'.

He said "PKR is seen as being monopolised by one family, that of Permatang Pauh Member of Parliament (Anwar, the advisor), his wife (Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail) as the president and their daughter (Lembah Pantai Member of Parliament Nurul Izzah) who also plays an important role. It (the party) is seen as a family enterprise. The people are not convinced by this (state of affairs). The developments in PKR had been expected because the basis of its struggle was not coated with service and struggle clearly defined for the people to understand.”
I don't think it was his intention to monopoly the party ..... but it was the STUPID SUPPORTERS who insisted his family members to stand for election,
Look at all the other UMNO BN members and see.............................. family members are involved one way or the other..................... sometimes as Business members or in advisory positions or directly as MP.
Anwar need ppl he can trust!!!!!!!!!!! around him and his so called best friends were froggies at the end! Money is more important for them then what the rakyat wants - change and better government. So sad and he cannot clean his party and set his party on the right track to survive his upcoming jail time!
However, it would not resort to such measures, similar to the proposal by China to use the so-called "Green Dam" censorware on all personal computers,” Rais Yatim added that "We have not done anything like that. We only ask that we use our religious and cultural values for our good. Besides, I admit that enforcement of the laws under the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 will be to the maximum. The people should not blindly accept anything published by the new media. We are building a civilisation, a culture. We have our way in our country, Singapore have their own way, and Thailand theirs. We now have Facebook, Twitter. We are not angry. What are our values with regard to our participation in Facebook? How are those in Europe and the United States assaulting us subtly? Don't we think about that? How do we handle our children who spend more time on Facebook than on their studies, on religious education? What I am saying is that the Internet is not our invention. We have to be cautious. Take the good, leave the bad,"
He also said “Every individual must have duty of care when publishing on the Internet and in speech so as not to undermine national security. Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998 (provides for) an individual to have duty of care when writing in blogs, and in speech, so as to ensure that the nation's security is unharmed. The act has existed since 1998. Some 113 cases have come up. The Attorney General's Chambers is acting on them. Twelve cases are being prepared and action will be taken. The Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak had agreed for a special officer from the Attorney General's Chambers to look into the adequacy of the existing laws.”
RECENTLY YOU WERE AGAINST THE IDEA OF INTERNET.
NOW YOU HAVE REALIZE WHAT THE PR MODERN IDEALOGY HAVE GOOD IMPACT FOR THE NATION.
ITS GOO YOU LEARN FROM PR FINALLY AS FOR THE UMNO ANIMALS, THEY BE LEFT BEHIND.
LOW MENTALITY IS WHAT TO DESCRIBE THEM.
Umno vice-president Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein (picture) said current developments in PKR not only showed the party’s failure to function as a viable alternative but also gave renewed spirit to Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN).
He said it was clear from the present crisis in PKR that it was not easy to run a party, what more a state or the whole country.
“This shows that even before they are given power to rule the nation, they are already facing problems,” the Home Minister said today.
Two PKR MPs quit the party over the past two weeks while several former leaders have also walked out, with ex-Penang Deputy Chief Minister Mohd Fairus Khairuddin joining Umno.
“They not only failed to stick to their promises and prove they are better than us, they have also failed to obtain the people’s support and now, they are even losing the confidence of their own elected representatives.
“This shows that it is not that easy to run a party or even a state. So to me, this is not only a sign, but it can also give a little spirit to us in Umno and Barisan,” he said.
Hishammuddin added that in comparison, BN had proven its success for the past 52 years.
“To rule a community with such high expectations and of such diversity is not easy but we did it for 52 years,” he told reporters after attending a crime briefing at the Petaling Jaya City Council hall in Kota Damansara here.
Hishammuddin, however, warned fellow party members and BN component party members not to allow the developments in PKR to cause them to stray from achieving their goals.
“Whatever happens in PKR, do not allow it to make us stray from our promises to the people. We said ‘people first’ and that we would go to the ground so we must stick to that. We must not rely on the status of the opposition parties to win support.
“I would like to remind this to all Umno and Barisan members,” he said.
When asked if the resignations of the two PKR MPs showed that de facto leader Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was slowly losing his Putrajaya dream, Hishammuddin smiled and said that things had a way of coming back to a person.
“Anwar has been speaking about Putrajaya since September last year. Do not forget that. The world is round. And in the end, even with all his allegations that Barisan members were going to jump to PKR, look at what is happening now.”
Yesterday, Nibong Tebal MP Tan Tee Beng quit PKR, citing disappointment in the party leadership. His departure came shortly after Bayan Baru MP Datuk Seri Zahrain Hashim left for similar reasons.
The recent developments have sparked rumours that more PKR MPs and even assemblymen may soon follow suit.
Events and dramas like the cow head protest, Allah issue, burning of churches and temples, pigs heads found near church compounds, these issues had reinforced the Rakyat's spirits to drive UMNO Baru/BN out for good come the next GE! This bunch of despicable characters are out to hang on to power at all costs, but, the Rakyat are very determined to ensure your political demise come the next GE! Nothing beats peoples power! Hear and learn that UMNO Baru!
It is well-known that all the state councilors and MPs who left, had financial problems or were being investigated by the MACC. Nevertheless, undeniably there were also some problems with the state government or party leadership. Almost all of them met PM Najib Razak and in certain cases his wife, Rosmah Mansor, before quitting Party.
I have always held when the dirt is removed, the skin will look better and the body will be healthier. Lest we forget, in their earlier history, PAS, DAP and even UMNO suffered from their President, Secretary General and other leaders leaving their party. They all emerged stronger after that.
Salehuddin served the KEADILAN well for about six years, three years as Organising Secretary and another three years as Secretary General. The Political Bureau appreciated his services and recorded its thanks.
There’s a misconception that the Party received Salehuddin’s services for free. I wish to put the record straight that he agree to accept RM9000 a month, although earlier he requested for US3,000 monthly. The sum was not paid by the Party but by a party supporter.
I was aware that during his good services, there were constant ups and downs in his attitude towards the Party, particularly the leadership. But his anger climaxed when his “application” to be CEO of Syarikat Perangsang, which carries a monthly emolument of more than RM50,000 monthly was rejected, before he resigned as Party Sec-Gen.
Now Salehuddin speculates that about ten more MPs will leave the Party. I leave him with his speculation and only time will tell whether he is right or wrong. Nevertheless, with the information I have, I believe that this is unfounded and part of baseless psy-war against the Party.

Fakhrul said “After two years in power, the bickering between the Pakatan component parties has worsened. Can you imagine what will happen if Pakatan controlled the Federal Government? The Youth wing had not received any allocation from the party to organise events for the people. What has PKR done for us here?” while his compatriot Hesabudin added “Pakatan had neglected the people’s welfare and the economy because they were busy fighting among themselves.”
77 PKR youth fromPermataang Pauh. a stronghold of Anwar Ibrahim' contituency, left to join UMNO. No matter what happens, there are some blackhands behind it with the intention to dislodge the popularity of Anwar Ibrahim. The other ship is bigger but filthy with smelly skeletons all over the ship. With funds available, there is no reason for those non principled members will not jump over. Do they not realise that the ship is rocking in strong and powerful tidal waves and the rakyat may worry that the ship may not make it to the shore. We believe more will follow soon with the help from the media.
Maybe 10 or so are but the rest are just phantom members all this while which was planted to create trouble for PR. Now PR started spring cleaning, they can no longer stay as they will be sacked or found out sooner or later , so might as well cross over without loosing face and gain some rewards.

He said "Umno needs to take action on Tengku Razaleigh. He should not be given any special treatment. His action was intentional so that Umno would be forced to take action on him and turn him into a hero. His purpose (for taking part in the opposition ceramah series) was to challenge the party (Umno) to take action on him so he could be a hero,"

Former chief justice Tun Mohamed Dzaiddin Abdullah (pic) will stay on as non-executive chairman of Bursa Malaysia for another year, until Feb 28, 2011.
It is understood that he was informed of the contract extension on Friday.
“Tun Mohamed Dzaiddin was informed Friday that his contract has been extended by another year,” a source told The Malaysian Insider.
A lawyer by training, Dzaiddin was appointed to the exchange board on March 1, 2004, after serving as chief justice from 2000 until retirement in 2003.
The Bursa Malaysia operates the Kuala Lumpur Stock Exchange and a fast-growing derivatives platform with listings including palm oil and Shariah-compliant
Isn't the job is for his retirement benefits ? How can a former Chief Judge be the chairman of Bursa which is a listed company with the motive of making money ? Oops I forgot, this is UMNO style of rewarding loyalty.
Nice work, another work of the "insider" to give him a job.. like the VP Lingam masterpiece of the fixing CJM scandal... way to go... sure you can make alot of this time!
I'm sure PR supporters will condemn the governement for extending the contract of this guy because he's a Malay. And you still ask what purpose of the Malay rights groups such as Perkasa formed?
The leader of Pertubuhan Seni Silat Gayong Malaysia (PSSGM), Datuk Adiwijaya Abdullah (second from right) explains the history of the organisation to the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Razak (right) while accompanied by the Mentri Besar of Negeri Sembilan Datuk Seri Utama Mohamad Hasan (left) at a dinner tonight.
Ex-Penang deputy Chief Minister Mohammad Fairus Khairuddin tonight joined Umno, making him the latest Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim ally to abandon PKR.
Umno president Datuk Seri Najib Razak welcomed Fairus, who quit as Penang DCM I and as Penanti assemblyman last year after allegations of graft, at a Silat Seni Gayong meeting in Ampang.
Fairus, who was dressed as a Seni Silat Gayong master, was one of those who greeted Najib at the event.
Another Anwar ally, Bayan Baru MP Datuk Zahrain Hashim, quit PKR this month to protest the party leadership over his spat with Penang chief minister Lim Guan Eng, whom he called a “dictator, a chauvinist and communist-minded”.
Fairus had submitted his forms to Umno two weeks after the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) cleared him and seven other high-profile politicians for graft.
Fairus, 33, quit as Penanti assemblyman last April 16 ostensibly to pursue post-graduate studies and spend time with his family.
Apart from being DCM I, he was also the Penang state executive councillor for enterpreneur and cooperative development, information and community relations.
In his speech, Fairus said he joined Umno after considering the developments for the past three months after the controversial ‘Allah’ ruling.
He claimed PKR’s stand on the issue was disappointing and had gone against its struggles. PKR is part of the Pakatan Rakyat state government in Penang.
“I finally got a clear sign and on the principle of defending religion and people’s interest, I would like to announce that I am leaving PKR to join Umno,” he said before Najib spoke at the meeting.
Najib welcomed Fairus in his capacity as Umno president, noting the man had lost faith in the PKR leadership,
“In the name of the Umno president, this young man named Fairus will be accepted with an open heart because I know he made the decision as a matter of principle, for the struggle... to be an Umno member.
“So we have to take care of him, he can play a role for the party, race and religion,” the prime minister said.
Fairus signed the forms to be a member of the Seni Silat Gayong group and Umno at the event.

“Take for example if you arrested, what can you do, who can you turn to? Although it may look increasingly like one, Malaysia is still not a police state yet. People who live in this country still have fundamental rights,” Hanipa told Harakahdaily in an interview.
Indeed, it was with the view of educating the citizenry on the significance of the law enshrined in the constitution that the Bar Council launched the 'My Constitution Campaign' on November 13 last year.
Even though the initial impetus came from the outpouring of public interest in the controversial court rulings over the Perak state leadership, workshops and seminars also address other parts of the constitution, especially relating to fundamental liberties.
“Individual rights may not be large sweeping laws such as the complex constitutional laws that we have been reading about in the Perak crisis, but these are very important 'small' matters that affect day-to-day life," Hanipa said.
"For example, you may not be part of a protest group but they are standing nearby. And when the police swoop on them, you are arrested as well. What can you do? What rights do you have?”
Federalism and the rights of states on March 1
Next week, on March 1, Hanipa and his colleagues from the legal fraternity will hold another seminar in Kuala Lumpur – part of a nationwide series that kicked off in Perak earlier this month.
The Bar Council had last year formed a constitutional law committee to entrench constitutional study and to promote constitutionalism as part of its initiatives to create awareness in society.
“The more you understand and know your rights, the more empowered you are as a citizen. In turn, we hope this effort will snowball us into a matured and democracy-loving society,” Hanipa said.
"It doesn't take a lot of your time and pocket-sized guidebooks are available. Get one and keep track. Be an interested citizen that no one can simply bully."
He will be speaking on federalism and the rights of the states – an issue that is particularly relevant now given the raging debate over oil royalty payments owed to Kelantan and Terengganu.
The My Consitution campaign is broken down into key themes that collectively cover the full federal constitution. These are:
- the role and function of the Federal Constitution as the “rule-book” or a framework of our nation;
- the role, function and powers of our constitutional institutions such as the legislature, the executive, the judiciary, the monarchy and the public service;
- the relationship between the Federal Government and State Governments;
- the rights and fundamental liberties of the rakyat; and
- the process of Federal and State elections as part of a functioning democracy.
About 50 groups today launched the Malay NGO Consultative Council (MPM) to defend Malay rights and Islam at the historic Sultan Sulaiman Club here, where a similar gathering nearly 60 years ago led to the formation of Umno.
Among the prime movers are Perkasa, ex-Umno lawmakers council Mubarak, Peninsula Malay Students Confederation (GPMS), Malay Professional Thinkers Association and Cuepacs.
among those who spoke were Perkasa president and Pasir Mas MP Datuk Ibrahim Ali (picture), Mubarak chief Tan Sri Abu Zahar Ujang and Malay Professional Thinkers president Professor Datuk Dr Kamaruddin Kachar who is a former director-general of the National Civics Bureau (BTN) which the opposition claims spreads hate ideology.
The MPM was launched by GPMS president Jais Abd Karim followed by a dialogue and a signing ceremony to form the body.
The MPM press release said “following several discussions by several Malay NGO leaders, there was a desire for a consultative council to bring together as many Malay NGOs concerned about current developments faced by the Malays”.
“It is apparent that there is pressure on Malay rights and privileges in their own country, towards the position of Islam as the official religion, the position and sovereignty of the Malay Rulers that is always being questioned, the New Economic Policy that is being sidelined despite the lack of achievement by the Malays and also national security,” it said.
These are among several “sensitive” issues for the Malays which have become provocative matters by those who want to destroy the security and prosperity of the country, the statement added.
The statement said the consultative council is not a platform for confrontation unless they are forced by parties described as those “inciting” racial tension.
“The main function of this council is to act as a medium to gather Malay NGOs that share the same stand to handle pressures faced by the Malays, Islam, Malay Rulers, national security, public order and other related issues,” the statement said, adding the idea to form the body was made early last month.
The MPM will form a task force that will be chaired by council members in rotation.
The statement also said the MPM had resolved each member should jointly study issues important to the Malays, Islam, Malay Rulers, national security and public order that is brought up or questioned by others, or to be championed by the community.
Others include the preparation and implementation of action plans to handle or oppose provocations against issues that relate to Malays and Islam, or issues seen as inciting or hateful.
The resolutions decided by MPM are:
* Resolutions must be based on facts and documents tabled at lawful MPM meetings;
* MPM members who disagree with the resolutions must accept the decision of the majority and be prepared to sign the agreed resolutions;
* MPM members who refuse or abstain from resolutions or decisions can choose not to sign off without affecting their membership; and
* If any MPM member opposes any of its resolutions or decisions, they will automatically cease to be members.
Please go ahead, do more , defend rights, rights , rights, but country can go down the drain still want to defend. May be one day there is nothing left to defend. Hmmmm, but it will be wonderful to defend the weak, the oppressed, the minorities, the one who have no rights. This is our duty and God's requirement for mankind. Go figure it out. Dont do anything to divide the country but unite the WHOLE country
New Economic Policy that is being sidelined despite the lack of achievement by the Malays???? ....who's fault? are you blaming the BN government ? or the government and agencies managed by mostly Malays? where is the fairness now? accept the fault and make sincere amendments - YES many middle class Malays are poor -help them sincerely ... not another wayang kulit -
Perkasa is the first right wing group and now followed by this nonsencical MPM
group..how many more silly,racist groups more will be formed in Malaysia.
No wonder more than 350,000 malaysians have migrated over the last
18 months,including intellectual malays,leaving this group of nicompoop
fighting over the crumbs leftover by UMNOputras..MCA,MIC,Gerakaan
why so quiet lah,say something before the parties become irrelevant..
Just who is threatening Malay rights and the Malay rulers? When will these extremists grow up and discard their siege mentality and stop being afraid of the non-Malay bogeyman?
Now we see the birth of a neo-Nazi organization. The father of all this TDM must be smiling happily. These are the products of TDMs spoon-feeding. They thrive on distorting truth and fear mongering.
What are these neo-Nazis saying? They are simply that there is no more place for the non-Malay and non-Muslim under the Malaysian sun. For instance, if somebody were to ask why is it that a Malay mother gets support to buy milk for her baby while others do not, these self-proclaimed guardians of the Malay race will see it as a provocation and incitement of racial tension and people have been warned that neo-Nazi troopers are prepared to storm and “CONFRONT” you. It is as simple as that.
These neo-Nazis pretend that they are the ones who created peace and prosperity in this nation. Keep dreaming!!. Wait for another year and see when FDI and local investment dries up and the capital flight from this country intensifies. It will be too late for this country – the descent into the abyss will accelerate.
These neo-Nazis are not ashamed. They are not honest enough to ask themselves one simple question. WHY IS IT THAT AFTER FIFTY YEARS OF PRIVLEGES AND EXCLUSIVITY IN ALMOST EVERY SPHERE OF LIFE they are still saying that their race is backward and needs help. Do they require another century of help before they are satiated? And also ask – who is paying for all this.
The fact that CUPECS is involved in this neo-Nazi organization says it all. More than 90% of the civil service is made up of Malays. At least they are not hiding the fact that CUPECS has now become part of the neo-Nazi storm troopers. Does CUPECS wants the civil service to be 100% Malay?
Professor Datuk DR Kamaruddin Kachar – please tell the people of Malaysia – how many generations within your family have been surviving on the public largesse? Tell the people if you will turn down privileged government scholarships, college admissions and jobs for your children so that a poor child from the kampong can benefit? Can you also tell all your privileged Malay friends, through this Neo-Nazi organization, that they should do the same for the sake of genuine poor kampung children?
Critical thinking Malay professors and thinkers – can you please explain why is that there is such a fariance in the number of children between a middle class Malay family and families of in other ethnic group? Can you please explain this phenomenon.?
UMNO is irrelevent now as far as i can see it. And the other BN parties are impotent lot. Najib letting this racist group to prevail what a slap on 1 Msia. Kamaruddin Kuchar "the kacau" caused trouble when he became the National Scout commisioner and now trying his luck in MNM or whatever they call them.
When did Cuepacs become a Malay body?
Who is pressuring Malay rights? How can a majority be threatened? Doesn't make sense...
Why CEUPACS and MUBARAK in the list. These two body represent multi-cultural Malaysian. CEUPACS should stay away from these coalitation because they represent all the government servent.
All Malaysian NGOs should have a coalation to protect the malaysian right to get a fair justice, learning with our mother tongue, have equal chances in bussiness, AP and have treat fairly.
Something that Malaysians have had to realise in recent months is that political power in the country has over the years become so centralised that local governance is in real danger of disappearing altogether.
Even the collection of solid waste – something one would think is best managed at the local level – is now under the control of the federal government.
Centralism, by its very nature, distances power from the people. In the process, it increasingly brings benefits to those with ties to the central government.
One could in fact argue that the voter revolt against the Barisan Nasional in 2008 was a collective rejection of the ills of political centralism, and that it intuitively sought to force that unhealthy situation to the surface.
That, it has succeeded in doing.
After the egalitarian Malayan Union failed in 1946, federalism emerged as the best structure for accommodating the country’s diverse political traditions and socio-economic structures. And so, the Federation of Malaya was born in 1948. This layered configuration of power also made it so easy for the polity to expand into Malaysia in 1963.
But centralist tendencies had always lurked within this conception. And this tendency took concrete form after May 13, 1969. The New Economic Policy’s attempt to balance racialist concerns with economic development was a commendable effort, but one that was bound to fail. It ended up enhancing racial and religious divisions instead.
More than that, it allowed racialism to become the de facto federal ideology. And with that federal government growing more centralist by the year, especially under Dr Mahathir Mohamad, racialism provided the excuse for the country’s institutions to discard not only principles of accountability and transparency, but also federalist principles as well.
Racial complicity in the civil service – and in the rest of society – was encouraged. Governance had to suffer in the long run, and notions of justice and the common good were replaced by racialist bullying and political arbitrariness.
The present spate over the right of certain states to 5 per cent of the revenues received from petroleum extracted off their coasts is but one of many symptoms of centralism having overshadowed federalism.
Petronas, the national petroleum company, had been making 5 per cent payments to Terengganu state since 1978, but stopped these abruptly after Parti Islam SeMalaysia (PAS) took over the state in 1999. Payments subsequently made after that state came back to the BN fold in 2004 have been titled “compassionate payments”.
Sarawak and Sabah are other states with rights to petroleum revenues.
Kelantan, the eternal opposition state, is now demanding their 5 per cent share, interestingly championed by the founder of Petronas, Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, who is also Umno’s Member of Parliament for Gua Musang in Kelantan.
The Kelantan prince has lately become the major voice of dissent within the ruling federal coalition.
By pushing this issue, Razaleigh, along with opposition leaders, is doing nothing less than continuing the uncovering of the centralism that has crept so deeply into Malaysian governance since the ‘70s.
Indeed, it can be argued that the divisions in Malaysia, often seen to be racial or religious in character, is due largely to excessive centralism, and, as in the case of Kelantan, to the unequal distribution of wealth.
Now, when centralism is challenged, signs of the conflict become evident. These range from serious matters such as eager police investigations into every report made against Lim Guan Eng, the Chief Minister of opposition-run Penang state, to more laughable ones such as the case of federal toilets.
Outside a public toilet recently constructed off the main road at Hillside Tanjong Bunga in Penang stands a sign that is as posh as the building it fronts is pretentious.
It says “Projek ini adalah sumbangan kerajaan persekutuan” (This project is funded by the Federal Government).
The fact that a central government that returns about 3 per cent of what it takes out of Penang state should make it a point to politicise the simple matter of a toilet being built for visitors to the hawker centre close by reveals how low the country’s nation-building ambitions have sunk.
Judging from the irritation this sign seems to be causing among local residents, how the federal government hopes to win any vote at all from this show of petulance is beyond imagination.
