PM must clarify link between 1Malaysia and 1Israel

Pakatan Rakyat leaders have poured scorn on a bid by Umno lawmakers to suspend Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim over a statement linking Prime Minister Najib Razak’s prized 1Malaysia slogan with Ehud Barak’s 1Israel electoral alliance.

They said no matter how much his minders tried to cover up, Najib needed to explain why he as a leader of a predominantly Muslim nation had chosen a platform that mimicked the one created by the Zionist politician a decade ago.

“It is clear that Umno-BN has embarked on an all-out war to stop Anwar including this latest attempt to keep him out of Parliament ,” PAS vice president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man told Harakahdaily.

“But no matter what they do, they cannot hide the fact that 1Malaysia is a failed project. The parties in Umno-BN are hardly united and even right now are fighting within themselves. How can they unite to form an effective 'one' government?”

Muslims want to know why

Earlier this week, Anwar told Parliament that Apco Worldwide - an international communications consultancy engaged by Najib - had played a similar advisory role in conceptualizing Ehud’s 1Israel.

The israeli leader is a former premier and the current Defence Minister of his country. He had put together an electoral coalition called One Israel in the run-up to the 1999 Knesset elections.

Both the 1Malaysia and 1Israel platforms have underlying similarities in that they aim to unite various groups through the use of centrist rather than elitist or rightist policies.

“Najib’s advisers are now very worried that this will spread and his 1Malaysia will be linked to 1Israel. And this is a big no-no because Najib himself is a Muslim leader,” PKR MP for Batu Tian Chua told Harakahdaily.

“It is difficult for him to explain why he chose to hire a firm with alleged Zionist links. Apco may deny involvement but Najib still has to convince Malaysian Muslims why he picked 1Malaysia when it is so familiar with 1Israel. Surely, there were more sensible choices.”

Protecting Najib

Indeed, Apco has since issued a written denial that it was involved in developing either the Malaysian or Israeli platforms.

That paved the way for Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Nazri Aziz to immediately threaten referring Anwar to the parliamentary Rights and Privileges Committee.

However, Nazri later also said he would put the matter up for the Cabinet to decide before proceeding with the complaint to the House.

“This is a serious allegation. We will have to decide whether action should be taken against Anwar for making a false statement in the House,” Nazri told reporters.

“The accusation was made against the leader of the House (Najib). So of course the accusation against the prime minister will involve the Executive. So, the committee has to decide.”

Anwar: Dumping NEP key to regaining competitive edge

“The racial equation means that the vast majority who benefit are Malays. So why the siege mentality?” he asked.

Malaysia must dump race-based affirmative action policies for a needs-based formula to stop the slide in its economic competitiveness, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim said last night.

The Opposition Leader insisted that dropping the New Economic Policy (NEP), first drawn up in the 1970s, would be more effective in helping poor Bumiputeras, a constant call by his political foes in Umno as well as Malay rights groups.

“It needs to be dismantled because of the lost competitiveness,” he told a forum in London.

Anwar’s frequent criticism of the NEP has often drawn flak along with the accusation that he is selling out "his race", a charge that he denies.

“We have to regain it and enrich the country and then distribute wealth through a more transparent affirmative action policy,” the PKR de facto leader said.

Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak is set to receive a New Economic Model (NEM) report that will offer alternatives to the current affirmative-action policies but he said public feedback is required before implementation.

The NEM comes on the back of moves last year to free certain sectors of the economy of Bumiputera quotas. These moves have raised concerns about Malays being marginalised.

But Anwar, speaking to a mix of 300 students and working Malaysians, argued that for the majority — and the majority of poor being Malay — a needs-based system would in fact benefit Malays more in comparison to other races.

“The racial equation means that the vast majority who benefit are Malays. So why the siege mentality?” he asked.

The Permatang Pauh MP added that he has often been posed hypothetical questions in which the Chinese would win all open tenders due to their current advantages.

“We will have policies in place that those who win tender awards must open up their subcontracts and give exposure to all other communities. If leaders are not corrupt and looking for commissions, then it can be done,” he explained.

The former deputy prime minister insisted that NEP policies were being supported by Umno as a means to practice “corruption with impunity.”

“They ask what will happen to Malays? In fact, Malays will be better off if they get rid of people like you,” he said, adding that it was an irresponsible statement to say that the NEP benefited all Malays at the expense of non-Malays when it in fact only benefited the “Umnoputra.”

Anwar, who was finance minister in the 1990s, defended the use of the NEP in years past, saying that he supported it before as “it was a different situation then.”

“We benefited and there was social mobility. But this from 35 years ago.

“Yes there were abuses, it was exploited by the rich and political cronies. Look at the richest Malays in the country, it is the brother of the prime minister, the son of a former prime minister and the son-in-law of another former prime minister,” he said, referring to banker Datuk Seri Nazir Razak, entrepreneur Datuk Mokhzani Mahathir and Umno Youth chief Khairy Jamaluddin respectively.

Earlier in the evening, Anwar had described how in the 1990s Malaysia was second in the region only to Singapore in economic competitiveness but could now no longer be compared to such leadings lights as our southern neighbour and other Asian giants like South Korea and Taiwan.

“Instead we are comparing ourselves to Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines and even then we are losing to them in terms of growth and foreign direct investment,” he claimed.

He added that the country has lost its attractiveness as an investment destination with experts explaining that Malaysia is no longer on “the radar” due to “destruction of institutions” such as the media and the judiciary.

This, they believe, has left investors with a sense of “hopelessness” about the economy.


Some putras want a money printing machine, until they get one they won't stop whinging.

Others countries are so happy that malaysia is practicing NEP with the racism element because the country best brain are draining out from malaysia to them. Only the BN still think they are very capable and happy - KATAK dibawah tempurung. Come on, open your wander malaysia is getting worse in competition.

You can help poor bumiputras and others through well thought of social upliftment programme. You can make educational opportunities available to all who need. You can provide vocational training to some. You can bring proper health and nutritional care to those isolated from towns by circumstances.
Government should plan and encourage businesses and creat employment and market local talents.

You can't do all these with grafts and corruptions. You can't expect to be competitive as a nation by dividing and discriminating your citizen. You have no hope if UMNO remains in power!!

Don't be surprised that if the current government is allowed to continued with its corrupted practices and abuse of power; in the not too distance future , Malaysians will be working as maids and laborers in Indonesia, Vietnam and the Philippines !!

MPs who walked out of Parliament not credible – Muhyiddin

Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin, the Deputy Prime Minister said that the elected Members of Parliaments who walked out of the Dewan Rakyat are not credible because they were denied their chance to debate any motions tabled in Parliament.

He said The action to walkout when the Parliament was in session had also deprived them of an opportunity to voice concerns of the people at the Dewan Rakyat,” Referring to the opposition MPs who walked out of Parliament after a motion was denied, he added that "They not only failed to heed the royal advise by Yang di-Pertuan Agong Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin, they have also failed to carry out their duties as representatives of the people, with credibility, by not being present during debate. Since they (opposition MPs) left in a group, they lost the opportunity to use valuable time that was available for them to voice out pertinent issues of the people.


BN MPs also did that when the opposition raise any issues right!! so who to blame??? this is the culture of Parliament of Malaysia. Do you think these MPs are working for the people???? Only God knows. If you dare sack all those walk out during the sessions. Not long the school children will follow during class in session. Who to blame?????

Dr M replaces Selangor Sultan at Perkasa confab

[Datuk Ibrahim Ali told the press that Tun Mahathir will be given a 'warrior's welcome' at the Perkasa confab. - Picture by Jack Ooi]
Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad will open Malay nationalist group Perkasa’s inaugural assembly on March 27, replacing the Sultan of Selangor who had decided not to attend the meeting.

Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali said the former prime minister will be given a warrior’s welcome.

“Tun Mahathir will be given a grand warrior’s welcome in accordance with Malay custom,” said Ibrahim in a statement to The Malaysian Insider.

Dr Mahathir who once made Ibrahim a deputy minister had also officiated the Selangor Perkasa launch on Jan 30.

Yesterday Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah said that he would not attend the Perkasa assembly.

However the Sultan hoped that the Perkasa meeting would proceed and the organisation would carry on its agenda to safeguard the sovereignty of the institution of rulers, Malay and bumiputera rights and the sanctity of Islam as the country’s official religion.

He also clarified that Ibrahim should not be blamed for naming him as the guest of honour on the Perkasa assembly invitation card as the palace had on early last month agreed to the organisation’s request.

Meanwhile Ibrahim hoped those who wish to attend the assembly to arrive early at the Putra World Trade Centre.

“As of now, more than 8,000 members have confirmed their attendance and some 2,000 invited guests are also expected to attend,” said Ibrahim.

“Because the attendance will be more than 10,000, so I am asking for cooperation from everyone to come early to avoid traffic congestion,” he said.

Ibrahim added that the assembly will debate motions on religion, economy, education and security.

Perkasa was formed soon after Election 2008 and has turned into a strong pressure group representing those seeking to defend the constitutional position of the Malays and the social contract.

It has been at the forefront in lobbying the government to retain the affirmative action policy favouring the Malays and in the New Economic Model (NEM) scheduled to be announced at the end of this month.


Even the Ruler gets to be replaced every 5 years, but this Toon Dr M stayed on to actually rule the country for 22 years, surely he is more suited to inaugurate Perkasar.

Toon Mahathir should find Perkasar very much at home.

The Sultan displaying finesse, Mahathir displaying poor taste!

Zahrain claims eight MPs set to jump ship

Bayan Baru MP Datuk Seri Zahrain Hashim (picture) today named eight MPs, whom he claimed were ready to jump ship in the opposition’s bid to takeover the government on Sept 16, 2008.

They were Datuk Seri Abdul Ghapur Salleh (BN-Kalabakan), Datuk Seri Anifah Aman (BN-Kimanis), Datuk Bung Moktar Radin (BN-Kinabatangan), Datuk Chua Soon Bui (Independent-Tawau), Datuk Eric Majimbun (Independent-Sepanggar), Dr Mohd Puad Zarkashi (BN-Batu Pahat), Datuk Seri Tengku Azlan Sultan Abu Bakar (BN-Jerantut) and Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah (BN-Gua Musang).

A Dewan Rakyat deputy speaker was also in the fray, said Zahrain in his speech when debating the royal address in the Dewan Rakyat.

The whole House broke into laughter when Deputy Speaker Datuk Dr Wan Junaidi Tuanku Jaafar interjected: “Which deputy speaker?”

Zahrain claimed that there was a link between online newspaper MalaysiaKini and Raja Petra Kamarudin (RPK)’s news portal with the opposition and urged the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission to probe into it.

Speaking to reporters at the Parliament lobby, Zahrain denied that he was a “BN mercenary soldier” as he had been vocal even before he left Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR).

Meanwhile, PKR secretary-general Saifuddin Nasution hit back at Zahrain by calling him a “BN attack dog”.

“Zahrain assumes a new role to denigrate the opposition and his sudden outburst was a marked different from his heydays in the PKR.

“He hardly took part in parliamentary debates for the past two years but all of a sudden he became very vocal.

“When these MPs jumped ship, they turn into ‘attack dogs’. They had prepared texts prepared for them and bring up issues which they think are crucial,” added Saifuddin.

Responding to the label “attack dog”, Zahrain retorted that it was unbecoming for him to be given such a label, and he added “Anyway, it will not stop me. Do respect me as an MP.” — Bernama


We will respect you when you follow Karpal Singh's suggestion, miss Parliament sufficient to get disqualified as MP, stand for reelection and prove you have support from your constituency for your switch. Would you dare to do it?

Datuk Bung Moktar Radin (BN-Kinabatangan)? The leader of the frog trip to Taiwan. Wow! No wonder he tried to outdo everyone. Sly fella. Now the cat is out of the bag, he will pay for it. Well done Zahrain.

Musa joins oil royalty debate

Former Deputy Prime Minister Tun Musa Hitam (picture) appeared tonight to back Kelantan’s oil royalty claims, when he said that the state government should be allowed to manage federal funds whether they are called oil royalties or goodwill payments.

He said such funds should be paid directly to the state government in accordance with the law and should not be channelled through special committees.

In an interview with Astro Awani tonight, Musa said the funds must be paid to the state government because the aim of such payments was for the public’s benefit.

“Whether it is goodwill payments or oil royalty that is not important. As long as they use it for development for the people.

“We should establish a system where we can monitor the funds even if the powers are given to the state government,” he said.

Musa’s comments come amid his Umno colleague Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah’s campaign to back Kelantan’s oil royalty claim.

Putrajaya is adamant that it will not pay one sen of oil royalty to Kelantan for oil and gas extracted in a shared production block off its waters.

Instead the government will pay out RM20 million to the Kelantanese people via federal agencies in what it calls a goodwill payment, similar to the mechanism it used in Terengganu between 1999 and 2009 when PAS was in power.

Tengku Razaleigh also warned Umno-Barisan Nasional (BN) today that the ruling coalition could lose crucial votes in the next general election if the federal government continued to deny Kelantan’s oil royalty claims.

For the past few weeks, Umno leaders have stopped attacking the Gua Musang MP, concerned that verbal assaults will push him into the arms of the opposition and provide Pakatan Rakyat with a strong leader should Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim be convicted of sodomy.

But the politician, popularly known as Ku Li, is slated to question why Putrajaya withheld oil royalty payments to Terengganu during the PAS reign in the state, and raise questions on how the federal government used funds owed to the state government.

Musa, who was once politically aligned with Tengku Razaleigh in a rivalry against former Umno president Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad in 1987, acknowledged tonight that his remarks may cause restlessness among current party leaders.

“When you hear my remarks it is not ‘mainstream’. Some may say it is closer to Tengku Razaleigh’s views. But do not misunderstand me... to say that Musa is back with Tengku Razaleigh. No, we are old so don’t worrylah.”

But Musa said he believes that Tengku Razaleigh knows what he is standing up for in his fight for Kelantan.

“I believe he is well versed with the issue because he was from Petronas before and he was in government."


Its a sheer waste of your enrgy addressing these oil royalty issues. With all your experiences, education and understanding in politics over the years use it appropriately for the emanicipation of the oppression, the suppression and the air of separatism and religious divides in Malaysia. Putting your 2 cents worth on oil royalty issues is gonna bring you an accolades nor great affirmations. Have the corage to stand up and speak for the RAKYAT. If you can't then you are just another one of those mediocres, NOT STATESMAN.

We believed those oil royalty's money had been channeled out and used out by the BN/UMNO , so they have to keep on denied it.

Man is awarded RM43,000 for injuries he suffered after being bitten by a crocodile

A' Famosa Golf Resort Berhad in Malacca agreed to compensate RM43,000 to a man who was bitten by a crocodile while he was golfing in the resort six years ago. The victim, Hong Kee Siong from Taman Sungai Besi filed in the case to court and managed to come to an agreement with the resort’s representative lawyer, Datin K. Anushiya recently.

Hong sued the resort on May 18, 2004 as he claimed that he was bitten by a crocodile while looking for his golf ball on January 22.


Golfers are called A, B, C , Alligator , Buaya , Crocodile , so crocodile bite crocodile
also can claim money ! not a bad deal !!!!


Zahrain calls for a caucus of Independent MPs in Parliament

Datuk Seri Zahrain Hashim, the Member of Parliament of Bayan Baru who recently resigned from PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat) to stand as an independent suggested that a third caucus made up of independents be created in Parliament apart from the current BN Barisan Nasional) and PR (Pakatan Rakyat). While it might seem logical, it might not be the viable as the question is on who would lead the caucus and what is the point of being an independent when one is affiliated to a pact?

According to local news media Malaysian Insider, an anonymous source said “Many of these MPs are “firecrackers” who want to be free, as a non-aligned MP, to air out their views and thoughts. If we are independents, why should we have a caucus? That would defeat the whole idea. Actually, the whole caucus thing is very much Zahrain’s idea. If there is even going to be a leader among them, it will be a contest between Zulkifli, Zahrain and Ibrahim. Tee Beng and Mohsin are good people, but they are followers, I very much doubt that they are going to be united, because each of them have different agendas going on. Take a look at Zulkifli. His stand on some things benefit Pakatan, like Anwar’s qazaf application, but his stand on things like ‘Allah’ are opposite Pakatan’s point of view. He’s got his Islamic agenda,”


Hey your f**king katak asshole...Zahrain Hashim, independent means free from collective ideas and views.
If you cannot even understand such a easy principle, no wonder you are a failed MP, only interested in thickening your wallet...blady bastard.

Money is what guide all your decisions, so whypretender...UMNO has lots of $$$$$$$$ to fill your blooming filthy arse!

Do you think these people deserved a seat in the Parliament ????My point of view, Parliament should stop providing a seat for the people. If possible go for re election or no seat. Other wise the future its difficult for the people to choose the right MP. They are suppose to represent the people, not even one term they are gone. Can the Govt servant do this??? would you employ this type of employees in your company??

Chong Wei called Rosmah before and after each match in All-England for inspiration

National shuttler Datuk Lee Chong Wei spoke about his inspiration on winning the elusive All-England Singles title. He said that throughout the tournament, he called and spoke to the wife of the Prime Minister, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor before and after every match he played during the tournament held in Birmingham which he claims to have boosted his morale which saw him eventually winning the championship.

He said this when visiting the official residence of the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak with Datuk Misbun Sidek, his coach and Datuk Shabery Cheek, the Minister of Youth and Sports. Rosmah said that she is proud with Lee’s achievement but he must stay focused in working towards claiming the Thomas Cup when it is played in Kuala Lumpur this May. She said “”Chong Wei should not become complacent following the various awards and incentives showered upon him for winning the All-England title.

Now, Chong Wei must focus on winning the Thomas Cup. You have promised to win," As the patron of the BAM (Badminton Association of Malaysia), she added that “An analysis be conducted on the inconsistent performance of national badminton players to determine the cause of their ups and downs. The BAM to also focus on the training for the rest of the players in preparation for the Thomas Cup and Uber Cup, instead of concentrating only on Chong Wei. One has to consider the other players as well. These (Thomas and Uber Cup competitions) are team competitions,"

MPM wants amendments to NEM because Malays and Bumis are marginalized

The MPM (Malay Consultative Council) has called for amendments to be made on the NEM (New Economic Model) because currently, they claim that the Malays and Bumiputras in the country are being marginalized. Datuk Ibrahim Ali, the founder of the committee said that they have send their proposed amendments to the Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak.

He said “MPM wanted to make sure that NEM was balanced and that there were “no more polemics” surrounding its introduction.” Dispelling claims of racism, he added that “I want to clarify something... people are thinking that MPM is racist, it’s not true. We are focusing on the distribution of the country’s wealth, based on social justice. MPM’s proposal is that NEM follows the UN Social Economic Charter for marginalised people. 77 per cent of the country’s population is made up of Malays and Bumiputras while 33 percent are non-Malays, which made Malays and Bumiputras the majority race in the country. Any country where the majority is marginalised, they should be given priority... with continual affirmative action. The UN charter states that the majority group is the national agenda... this is indeed the issue of national agenda, because this is the majority population. Contrary to preconceived notions, Malays have not ‘received much anyway, these are all misperceptions.’”


Ibrahim Ali you are already like a Fat Swine....waaaaaaah! behaving like Melayu beggars...cari lopans for more handouts!!!
Buy lagi clutches for your members la, get more sympathy from the public and then, squeeze their balls to fill your bloated wallets.
What f**king scumbags, pukimak!!

These are a group of lazy Bastards..............Celaka UMNO style,,,,,,,
Only wish to be spoon-fed and hand-outs.
Nowhere near to those intelligent, sincere and hard working majority Malaysians of Malay Origin.

Corruption mindset very much evident in PKR – S’gor MB

Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, the Mentri Besar of Selangor said that the PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat) is currently burdened and plagued with some who are in politics and the party gunning for top posts and corrupt practices. He said that such members are in the PKR and that they are demanding for huge payback due to the major win they enjoyed during the last General Election.

He said that the ‘Umno culture for largesse’ is very much evident and present in the party and that members like these are the ones who are hurting the reform agenda of the party. He said “Please, this is a culture of 50 years which cannot be changed in 700 days. Changing the old mind set would take time. I have taken a stand that we cannot give preference for contracts and allocations to our members. It was for good reason that voters in Selangor gave their mandate to Pakatan Rakyat (PR) in the general elections two years ago. They wanted change. A democratic, efficient administration and we are delivering. In the past, they could do what they wanted and give contracts to those who they wished. But we will ensure that all will get an opportunity and no one will be left behind.”

He added that “When we were the opposition (in Selangor) I had to use my own money to fund party activities but now that we’re the government, I’m still using my own money. The public may be happy with the mentri besar reform policies, there are grassroots members who are unhappy with his tight grip on the purse strings.”


Tan Sri, just kick them out, they are not there to look at the importance of the people neither the party. It is so clear they already demanding, its time for good cleaning up to get rid of rodents like these leeches.


the UMNOs scattering around the PKR table...some of them offer hands for money some of them offer hands for UMNOs use outside there....

The people voted for them not because they are good but it is because they want a change. But these people are now demanding. Greedy and corrupted. Just booth them out. Dont give them any contracts. Perhaps a trip to Disneyland should be good. They tour guide should be non other than Toyol.

Delay in GST bill not victory for opposition – Mukhriz and Hishammuddin

After much protest and objections from the opposition front and some from within the ruling administration, the BN (Barisan Nasional) leaders have come out to support and defend the GST (Goods and Services Tax). The tabling of the bill was delayed and this has been widely used by the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) to hit out at BN. To this, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein, the Home Minister said that the delay does not constitute any form of victory for Pakatan Rakyat. He said “Well, they can say whatever they want. They can say it’s a victory but the reality is when the announcement was made, the move was well-received by many. So it’s their job to gain political mileage in anything that we do. It’s nothing new,”

Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir, the Deputy Minister of International Trade Minister Datuk Mukhriz Mahathir also laughed off the victory claim, very much the same as what Hishammuddin did where he said “The opposition often don’t ‘have anything good to say about what the government does.’ When we are looking into details, then they say we are having second thoughts, but when we rush into things they say we’re doing it too fast. Which is it? It seems to me they don’t have anything good to say about what the government does. I still feel that it’s (GST) one of the important methods that should be introduced by the government in terms of how to increase revenue,”


GST is not going to help the poor. How can the average Malaysian survive. Your economy is not stable Joe, what is your game? You can laugh all you want, but the opposition is right this time and its not a joke.



Zulkifli Noordin hints at ‘surprise’

Sacked PKR MP Zulkifli Noordin today hinted that a “surprise” event would take place “very soon” during the current sitting of Parliament which would have a huge impact on the political situation in the country.

Without elaborating, the now-independent MP told The Malaysian Insider that the event could involve him or “any of the MPs”.

Asked if he meant that more defections could be expected, Zulkifli cryptically said: “It is your right to assume anything.”

He, however, said the purported event could occur “depending on the situation”.

“Because whatever that is to be done must be done when it would cause a big impact,” he said at the MPs lounge in the Parliament building here.

Zulkifli added that the event could be a positive one, depending on how people look at it.

He would not offer more details, saying that if he were to reveal more “it would no longer be a surprise”.

Meanwhile, Zulkifli said he was happy to be an independent, adding that he felt “free”.

“I feel better now. And I can do more. You can measure me from my speech later, my first one as an independent MP,” he said.

He added that now that he was no longer affiliated with the opposition, people had no problems approaching him.

“In fact, two senior police officers came to see me, asking me to highlight their issues. At least now being an independent gives me the opening to effect the changes that I always wanted,” he said.

Zulkifli is the latest addition to the independent bloc in Parliament after PKR sacked him for disciplinary problems.


Fellow Malaysians, let us ignore scums like this one, Ibrahim ali, Zahrain, Tan and so on. They will do anything for attention and notoriety. As if the rakyat do not know their real agendas and intentions, all denoted by huge $$ signs.

The GE13 is very near. Now let you talk big and use the last power you can while you still have. Do not think that with your two hands can cover the whole sky.

The Rakyat must teach and give this type of lousy politician the best lesson. You will not able to run away and the Rakyat definitely will let you taste this. The more you betray the Rakyat, the bitter you will taste. Wait and see, dump.

Zahrain and Zulkifli claims to be more ‘effective’ since becoming independents

After “leaving” the PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat), Datuk Seri Zahrain Mohamed Hashim and Zulkifli Noordin, the Members of Parliament of Bayan Baru and Kulim-Bandar Baharu respectively said that they feel they are more effective standing as independent MPs and not attached to any party. Zahrain said that he feels ‘free to carry out his own agendas’ to benefit the people. He said “This included supporting motions in the Dewan Rakyat which were advantageous to the people and opposing those that burdened them. For instance, I support the 1Malaysia concept to give Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak a chance to implement it to strengthen unity among the people but I don't support the goods and services tax (GST),"

Meanwhile, Zulkifli Noordin said "I feel more effective as an independent MP because I can now make decisions and stands without being bound by any party trend. I will support any motion that brings good for the people and Islam and object to those that run counter to this,"



Of coz more effective. No party attached and awaiting for UMNO to offer $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. SO wait la.


Khir Toyo calls on M’sians to give PM a chance

Former Mentri Besar of Selangor Datuk Seri Dr Khir Toyo has called on the people to give the prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak a chance as he has proven to be an open minded leader after the recent U-turn on the proposal of a GST (Goods and Services Tax) bill. Khir Toyo claimed that the Pakatan Rakyat has been attacking the leadership of Najib with lies and untruths. He said “Let’s give a chance for Datuk Seri Najib to make a change. He is very open-minded. For example, a lot of the issues that I have raised in my blog, Najib has taken note and attended to. On the GST, I have said for a long time now don’t at once implement the four per cent tax, it is not cheap, the poor will suffer.

Also, I have commented on the two-tier petrol system using MyKad, where it is going to be more troublesome than good. Alhamdulillah, the GST implementation has been delayed. You see, Najib listens. He does this for the rakyat, he won’t make any hasty or rash decisions. This is the kind of leader that we want. Give Najib a chance,” Hitting out at the state government, he added that “Look at what’s happening in Selangor. You have elected representatives like Ng Sue Lim who is alleged to have been drunk when he knocked a university student .. .what has happened to the student’s welfare? No one knows. At the same time, when Teoh Beng Hock dies, his family gets RM50,000 ... this is what they mean by equality, their so-called struggle,”


khah..khah...khah.....and moron asking to back another moron...what a sick joke...i guess it takes one to recognize another...

If Najib is good, honest and fair, you're thrown behind the bar already. Tell us how many teeth that you've pulled to purchase the Toyol Palace!!!


Wah, trying to jack up your toyol value! No wonder C4 is so stupid and evil because he has been listening to a demonic toyol. The people will not give both of you a chance to create havoc and bloodshed. Over our dead body!

Dont jackass our PM to make your escapes. Many rakyats knows he is no better than you. We will never give Najis a chance even if you are CHARGED for building your BALINESE PALACE with our rakyat's monies and some of the state chief ministers under UMNO. Give us back the rakyats multi millions ringgit you have corrupted. God will not spared you either. Go to hell, TOYOL

Ku Li will be Umno for life

Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, the Member of Parliament of Gua Musang who has been in the limelight recently for criticizing the government over the oil royalty issue for the Kelantan state has reiterated his support for Umno saying that he is in the party for life and that he will not jump to another party after much speculation from various quarters. This came into light after his numerous verbal attacks on how Kelantan was denied oil royalties but instead were given ‘compassionate payment’.

He said "If there are people who want my post, they'll have to wait for me to die. Furthermore, my explanation was not made on PAS' platform but 52 non-governmental organisations had organised the public talk to enable me to explain the matter and the provisions of the Petroleum Act 1975. What have I got to do with the party (PAS), that there were people who even went to the extent of asking me to quit (Umno)? They should consider that I was willing to disband Parti Melayu Semangat 46 which I had helmed to rejoin Umno. This matter must be understood clearly because the people became confused following the various allegations made against him. It was definitely not to go against the Umno leadership,"

The prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak has applauded the Internet when he hosted the 1Malaysia hi-tea event with his Internet friends at Seri Perdana, his official residence saying that it has broken down many barriers and walls which were dividing the people of Malaysia. Hosting the event with him was his wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor and his 2 children, Nooryana Najwa and Nor Ashman Razak. He said “The beauty of the Internet is that it breaks down the ethnic, religious and age walls. We are here because we are connected via the Internet. About five million Malaysians were active on the social website Facebook. I want all of you to feel that you have the Government that is very responsive to the needs and aspirations of the Malaysian people ... and we will use the latest technology to get connected and communicate with ‘rakyat Malaysia’,”

He added that “A special website to display the names of successful winners of tenders would be launched soon as part of the efforts to reduce corruption. The Government is also making efforts to have a minimum wage in the private sector to help people in the lower income group achieve the highest possible growth rate.”


Bullshit talking!!!

At the same time M'sia is building new barriers on the internet by censor websites that in any way includes nudity and any information about islam that is not positive!!!

Where is freedom of speech and freedom of religion?!!!

I won’t quit – Zahrain

Datuk Seri Mohd Zahrain Hashim, the Member of Parliament from Bayan Baru said that he is not going to resign from his post despite calls for him to do so from within and outside his constituency. He reiterated his stand and that he will not give in to pressure from the quarters who are demanding for him to relinquish his MP post. He said "I am very clear with my stand and I would like to continue serving the people, especially in Bayan Baru, as an independent MP. The PKR (Parti Keadilan Rakyat) members should know that I am not an MP for the party; I am an MP for the people.

They cannot stop me from continuing to serve the people. I believe that not all of them want me to vacate the seat, but only a small group who may be influenced by PKR which wants me to quit. I think that in the democratic process, it is my right whether to vacate the seat or not. After the major loss in the 2004 general election, I was assigned to the task as the PKR state chairman to rebuild the party." He added that “The problem with PKR was that it was compromising too much with its coalition partner, the DAP. I am still all for reformation but succumbing to the DAP, especially to Lim Guan Eng who is Penang Chief Minister, would destroy Pakatan Rakyat,"






How do you expect a DOG to have any principle and integrity. If he felt that he represents the voters in his
constituency...vacate his position and re- contest as an Independent, prove to Malaysians that he is a man of substance and, not a maggot shit!
He is fast beginning to sound and look like our Mr UMNO SPIN-doc....mastering the art of twisting and turning.
Have anyone heard this song, "LET'S TWIST AGAIN...LIKE THEY DO IN UMNO...

I hope the people of Bayan Baru will get rid of this garbage mp before he further pollute the town.


YOU CAN'T BE T R U S T ED......NO MORE & WON'T BE IN THE FUTURE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Ibrahim: So what if I do business with the Chinese?

Perkasa chief Datuk Ibrahim Ali said today he will continue to speak out against the dominance of the Chinese community in business despite being forced to acknowledge today that he was once a board member of a company controlled by Chinese tycoon Tan Sri Vincent Tan.

He told The Malaysian Insider that his opinions about the need for Malay economic interests to be protected was focussed on the macro-economy.

Ibrahim acknowledged being a board member in Dunham Bush (M) Bhd, a refrigeration and air-conditioning system manufacturer, when it was a listed company and controlled by Tan’s Berjaya Group. The company has since been taken private after a takeover by another company.

“So what? I am talking about macro economy and issues in a bigger picture...even if I did business with lots of Chinese friends and have Chinese partners,” Ibrahim told The Malaysian Insider in a text message.

“Is it wrong to say Vincent Tan got lots of benefits from the government even if I am his group CEO. Ha ha, I just want to prove a lot of big companies that belong to these types of groups got monopoly (over) businesses, subsidies and etc,” he added.

The independent Pasir Mas MP said that his position in the company when it was controlled by one of Malaysia’s most prominent Chinese businessman did not mean that he was wrong about the fact that the community dominated the economy.

Ibrahim’s Perkasa, a member of the Malay Consultative Council or MPM, is worried that the New Economic Model (NEM) will increase that dominance.

His position in Dunham Bush was raised by blogger Raja Petra Kamarudin in his Malaysia-Today website. The website published the company’s 2003 annual report which showed Ibrahim as one of its directors.

According to the report, Ibrahim was appointed to the board on August 28, 2000. Ibrahim pointed out however that his views about the Chinese community were not wrong despite doing business with them.

“So don’t say get rid of little brothers and go ahead with brutal competition as said by Tan Sri Datuk Francis Yeoh of the YTL Group.”

Yeoh had reportedly said that Malays must do away with its “little brother mentality”, a description for the Malay protectionism practiced under the New Economic Policy.

Yeoh had reportedly urged Malaysia to practice “brutal competition” if it wanted to remain competitive.


The dog that bites the person who feeds it, should be shot. I'm sure Ibrahim Ali can find a suitable proverb in malay. He can laugh it off, but i'm remember this racist.

also Twin headed snake strikes!!!The latest attraction in M'sia after the notorious frogs!!!

The reason why Vincent Tan made him director because he can get contracts for Tan Sri at the expense of the Malays.Now the traitor of his own race wants to be the champion? What a bloody joke.

never seen a pathetic creature like this in my entire life.... he would just make 360 if he been offered a seat by DAP in the event his current antics would not secure him the MP seat the next GE... he is that cheap...

Does this Ibrahim Ali guy know what macroeconomics is? Since when the Chinese in Malaysia control government's fiscal policy, monetary policy, and using interest rates to regulate the economy? He is now putting his foot, leg and all deeper into his mouth.

He actually thinks that many individual companies put together becomes macro economy.

No wonder he cannot see problems beyond his iron crutches!

It is waste of time replying to this opportunist who benefits by becoming umno cronies director and now says protect malay rights. What actually he meant was protect malay rights by appointing unmo's nominees as chairman, Managing director etc to all the chinese controlled public listed companies! This is what unmo politician call malay rights. The real poor malays doesnt know what is happening but being hoodwinked to support perkasa.

This joker, just like his UMNO masters has no credibility and is good at twisting facts and words. Just like UMNO he has no hesitation using race and religion just to further his own selfish interest.

This is just like many UMNO leaders who slam those who don't send their kids to govt school bt are the first to send their child abroad.

Then again what can you expect from a racist party.

A wolf ( hypocrite ) in sheep ( Perkasa, MPM ) clothings.

What can you say about such a character?

Filling his own pockets is OK, but not the pockets of others, even though they work hard and diligently at that.

Fighting for the ordinary Malays seems to be his main objective, but could Perkasa do that? Isn't that the prerogative and duty of the government of the day? Could Perkasa be really bothered if the ordinary Malays are protected or get their fair share of the nation's riches?

Perkasa seems to an ideal platform for certain Malay individuals who are only interested to further their own interests and agendas. On the pretext of championing the interest of the ordinary Malays, they could hide behind that shield and enriching themselves while dishing out crumbs to their charges. The reason to set up a RM2 billion bank? What a clever scheme. What an old trick and gimmick.

Let's not fall into the hands and traps of such treacherous and scheming traitors! Malays or otherwise.

Husni: No framework to protect Malays in NEM yet

The New Economic Model (NEM) does not include any framework to protect Malay economic interests yet, Second Finance Minister Datuk Seri Husni Hanadzlah said today.

Husni said the framework would only be inserted after the NEM was revealed to the National Economic Advisory Council for inputs.

“Actually, there is still no formula for initiatives to protect Malay economic development in the NEM,” he told the press after attending an event here.

“But the NEM framework will be given to the NEAC, and then, it will be openly displayed so that everyone, every race and sectors, can give their inputs,” he said further.

Husni said that the government was still looking at developing the economy through “growth with equity” which meant that it would not neglect the interests of any race, particularly the Bumiputeras.

“We will not be leaving behind any races in the country’s development. That is why we are emphasising on the term growth with equity,” he said.

The NEM, a brainchild of the Najib administration, proposes to open up the economy and do away with Bumiputera quotas in several sectors as part of Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s effort to steer the nation out of its “middle-income trap”.

But its proposal was met with “trepidation” by his own Cabinet and triggered a new Malay nationalist movement led by Perkasa, who were calling for the government to entrench Malay economic dominance, which they claimed was provided for under the Federal Constitution.

Perkasa later formed the Malay Consultative Council. Its first congregation last week resulted in a unanimous demand that government ensured the NEM protected Malay interests.

Husni took pains today to assure the public that the NEM would always strive to make sure that the Malays would not be forsaken in what he described as Malaysia’s “third wave” of economic thrust.

“This is the third wave. We came from an agricultural economy, to manufacturing so this is the third wave. The transformation to a high-income economy,” he said.

Husni did not reveal the details of the transformation, pleading for the public instead to wait for the announcement to be made by Najib at the end of this month. The prime minister had said that the NEM would be announced in stages and incorporated into the 10th Malaysia Plan


Huh? UMNO drafted the NEM which favor the Chinese and not the Malay?????
And then the UMNO guy cliams the Chinese is bullying the Malay?????
What is going on here?

Malays need protection from UMNO, not from anyone else. Best example: Kelantan and Terrenganu. They have a super-majority of Malays but were denied their constitutional right of oil royalties while governed by the Opposition.

Malays, along with every other community in Malaysia, can seek protection from Pakatan Rakyat.

I hope PR leaders make this clear.

Anything can be inserted (like Sodomy) to make NEM relevant to the malays, depending on the pressure from Perkasa and how loud Ibrahim ali can be.

Let's play a game.

1. Name 50 richest UMNOputra.
2. List down the businesses they have built with the own blood, sweat and tears.
3. Llist down the businesses that they acquired through tenders and direct negotiations or connections.
4. L ist down the methods on how they acquire all their riches.

IGP Musa denies he's quitting

The Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan has denied that he has resigned while questioning the source of the information.

“I have not submitted any resignation letter to the Prime Minister or anyone. I want to know if the source is from an official channel or from the ‘underground’,” he said when contacted on Saturday.

“I know it is not from the (Home) Ministry as I have checked with its secretary-general Datuk Mahmood Adam, who denied any knowledge.”

Musa said if information in the article published was obtained from unofficial channels including the “underground” such as syndicates, then he “felt sorry” for the country.

He said if the “underground” could manipulate the post of the IGP, then Malaysia was heading for disaster.

“I have asked my officers to check with the newspaper that published the article and find out the source who gave them the misleading information,” he added.

Musa had been given an extension to his one-year contract and he is due to retire in September.

A Chinese daily had reported that Musa was expected to step down on March 25 during a Police Day function.

It quoted sources that said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak and Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein accepted his resignation.


Mattress carrier,
After you have gone from the seat which you do not deserve and which you have, in fact, robbed from Dato Ramli, you could join the Tilaks in a carpet and tilam conglomerate.

You could also start a fabrication business in Zimbabwe - fabrication of evidence that is!

To complete your criminal career, be the chairman of the conglomerate of whore houses, smugglers, illegal VCD manufacturers and loan sharks.

Rot in hell, you mongrel dog!

Yesterday the court acquitted Dato’ Ramli, the person you tried to frame with your MACC cohort. Many Malaysians thinks Dato Ramli is the real hero, a true crime-fighter and you Mattress Carrier, is nothing more than a scumbag who work with both sides; for the tyrant UMNO regime to oppress the people and, the prostitution, loan-sharking and gambling-den triad gangs.

Do you think we Malaysian have an iota of respect for you? Why should we have any respect to a person who draws salary from the tax-money we paid, yet that person do not protect the us but instead protect the tyrants, oppressor, thieves and loan shark towkays? You are lucky that those crooks in UMNO kept you far too long at the expense of the escalating crime rate. If the people are given a chance to elect our IGP based on merit and honesty, Dato’ Ramli would have won by a landslide hands down against you.

Try asking the man in the streets what they think of you? And if you are an honest and not a “muka tebal” person, you should resign after getting the feedback and hearing what they would say about you.

It does not matter if you resign or not. To us the rakyaat, you are not the law keeper of this country. To us the rakyaat, you are cohorts to the Ahlong and the other triads syndicate. To us the rakyaat, you are nothing, other than an UMNO tool to oppress the people. To us the rayaat, the longer you are at the PDRM's helm, the higher will be the crime rate!. . ., why don't you look in the mirror, and take a good hard look at yourself.

On the hind sight, it might be good for you to resign too. Than maybe you could start the “tilam” business with the help and finance from your good friend, BK Tan! But make sure you don't smeared the tilam you are selling to your customers with your DNA!

China Press given show cause letter

The Home Ministry today issued a show cause letter to China Press over its exclusive report that Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan had handed in his resignation letter.

“The report has been verified to be not true,” the ministry said in a statement here.

It added that China Press had been given seven days to give a written reply to the show cause letter which was issued under Section 8A of the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984 (Act 301).

Under the act, action can be taken against those responsible for publishing false news including the printer, publisher, editor and the writer.

If convicted, offenders are liable to be jailed not more than three year or fined not exceeding RM20,000 or both.

The news report published today had said that Musa would retire on Police Day on March 25 and would be succeeded by his deputy, Tan Sri Ismail Omar.

Quoting a source, the report further said Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and Home Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein had received the letter.

Musa and Hishammuddin today had denied any truth in the report.


Yes, show these corrupted racist mudderfcukkers the third and centre finger !Also, ask them why no action against the racist toilet papers, Utusan Msia !

Why bother about reporting on him and getting into trouble. There are so many other newsworthy things to report on.

With Najib in Musa's pocket for keeping evidence linking him to Atlantuya's murder, he will get away with everything. Having a prime minister of a country by the balls, Musa can ask Najib to jump and Najib can only ask; how high? So long as Najib is still PM, I would not be surprise if Musa tenure be extended another 5 years.

The China Press's source could be a deceptor in the Home Ministry. By forcing China Press to publish a bluff, the Home Minister can take action against the sensational press and close it down. Alternatively, the source could be the IGP's men/ syndicates that are comforatble with Musa, who are trying to force the government's hand to once again extend the tenure of the IGP.

Only the criminals very happy at this news, they can continue to loot, rob and plunder us the poor rakyak while they use the polis to do politicking.

Dont play play with the IGP. Kerismuddin must do whatever IGP wants and now he wants the balls of the editor of China Press. He already has the Najib's balls. Wait until RPK tells the real inside story on this. Actually IGP was ordered to resign. Instead of resigning he sent Najib a bit of Saiful's shit and the Mongolian woman's blood. That sent shudders through Najib"s spine. By then China Press had already published the story and now to please the IGP, China Press is the scapegoat!

Hisappudin showing-off UMNOputera power as usual.Don't worry.........the news is true but news leaked out a week early. I'm sure this skunk is soon going to be our ex-PIG.
Even my toes are laughing......

If NST or Star were to have written any racist remarks are religious blasphemy against the Christian religion no action would be taken.

Now why make such a big issue about a false article in China press about a resignation? Hey stupid government the rakyat are not stupid not to see the double standards.

Zaid: Umno, Perkasa defenders of rent-seeking

PKR supreme council member Datuk Zaid Ibrahim today accused Umno and right-wing Malay groups like Perkasa of promoting rent-seeking among Malays under guise of defending their rights.

He said Malays with high-level ministerial connections were being accorded allowances, special benefits, as well as positions, ostensibly to allow others access to these connections.

“Actually, what they want to defend is a rent (seeking) system, whereby Umno Bumiputeras can use their influence as leverage to get positions, allowances and shares in a company.

“These kind do not mind protecting the interests of the elite, even though the companies of these elites have resulted in honest Malay businessmen [being] unable to gain a fair playing field. That is the truth of the situation,” said Zaid in a posting on his blog.

He asserted that Malays should be able to work with anyone, as long as they worked hard and took care of their businesses.

“I agree with Ibrahim Ali who has said that there was nothing wrong with him, as Perkasa president, working with a wealthy Chinese businessman like Vincent Tan, or with any businessman to make housing projects or bridges or any other projects in Kelantan.

“Malays should be able to work with whoever that can bring them benefits and profits. The important thing is that they really work hard and are proactive businessmen. What’s important is that Malays should not become ‘sleeping partners’ or an Ali to a Baba. Malays need to know their self-worth,” said Zaid.

He lamented the fact that many Malay leaders who had close ties to the prime minister or other top government officials were only chasing after lucrative positions, such as becoming non-executive directors of companies and failing to do any work.

Malays who constantly lobbied for Bumiputera rights to be protected and preserved also came under his crosshairs, with Zaid pointing out that many of these people themselves were not of pure Malay origin.

“The real sons of the soil of this country, like the Senoi, Negrito, and the proto Malays and also ethnic groups like the Semelai, Jakun, Temuan, Temiar, we never see them sitting in the director’s post in big companies. They have no protection under Article 153.”

He further questioned the sincerity of Ibrahim and Umno leaders in defending their purportedly eroding rights, by reaffirming that the rights of Bumiputeras have never been in danger of being compromised.

“These people should come to their senses. What Ibrahim Ali and Utusan (Malaysia) should be fighting for is so that the NEM (New Economic Model) would be able to curb the phenomenon of the selling of the names of Bumiputeras to certain elite groups or companies.

“As long as these Bumiputeras continue receiving free allowances from these groups, the economy of the Malays will be dominated by a select few. These elites are not just anybody, even the Chinese don’t like them because they take everything,” Zaid continued.

Nevertheless, Zaid remained doubtful of Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s promise to make the NEM work for all Malaysians.

“I think that it is impossible that Najib would clean up this rent system because Umno leaders will then get angry... they will get upset if the NEM is fair and gives equal opportunities to all Malaysians.”


Ask UMNO why the NEP was a failure for not achieving its goal after 30 years. UMNO should be bold enough to tell the rakyat what actually went wrong during the BN ruling. Who actually benefited from NEP> Revealed the data first. PERKASA should be asking UMNO itself instead of barking now for the malays rights which other race don't even talk about it - its only the NGO who is making noise - maybe the leaders have no more choice but to start blowing the trumpet that they are the only one who Cares for the Malays.

UMNO will never give up this rent seeking system.
This was implemented and advocated since TDM became PM
The entire power structure system in UMNO thrives on this system.

If the UMNO leaders cannot supply the 'goodies' or the 'loot' ,he would be push out.
This rent seeking system leads to wholesale and legalise robbing and plundering of nation wealth.
Sadly, only a handful of UMNOputras benefited from this system.
The majority of Malays remain poor ,lowly educated , obscure and confused to this day.
Malay supremacy and racial ranting is subcontracted to Ibrahim Ali ,while UMNO disguise multi racialism.
To promote meritocracy ,fair system and equal opportunities will be suicidal to UMNO leaders

Umno and Perkasa are nothing but diguising under the so-called interest of malay race to actually promoting only the elites and the riches. They are just good for nothing, kowing only to sell their right to non-malay companies and satisfied by just receiving some allowances and chairman in name only without any real say or right in the companies they suppose to lead.

Why is Hishammuddin breathing down the neck of the media

The Home Minister, Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Hussein is breathing fire and brimstone, threatening “all hell to break loose”, demanding an explanation from China Press for its report that the Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Musa Hassan had tendered his resignation letter.

Warning China Press not to publish reports which are not true, Hishammuddin said he had instructed the Home Ministry secretary-general Datuk Seri Mahmood Adam to ask the newspaper editor to explain the report.

Why is Hishammuddin breathing down the neck of the media threatening “all hell to break loose” when all that is needed in the relevant case is a correction for any incorrect report about the resignation of Musa Hassan as IGP?

Is the stability and strength of security in the country and in particular the Malaysian police force so brittle and fragile that a report like that of China Press today could seriously compromised or jeopardized them?

In fact, Hishammuddin should know that if the China Press report is true that Musa has resigned as Inspector-General of Police, there would be joy and jubilation not only among loyal and patriotic Malaysians who have always put national interests above self, but also among top police officers as well as the rank-and-file.

This is why:

On 28th July, 2009 I spearheaded a parliamentary roundtable reaching an unanimous conclusion that Malaysia needs a new IGP to create a safe Malaysia and break away from colonial past by introducing democratic policing to protect the people and not the regime in power;

On 1st August, 2009 I said in my speech in Kuantan that Musa was wreaking personal vengeance against me and other Pakatan Rakyat leaders for the parliamentary roundtable calling for a new IGP to create a safe Malaysia;

On August 7, 2009 I issued a media statement that “Take a secret poll among the 2,000 top police officers from ASP upwards and an overwhelming majority will definitely vote for a new IGP”; and

On August 8, 2009 I said in my media statement that “Police, Home Minister and Prime Minister will not be able to hold their heads high in international community if Musa is renewed as IGP when under his three-year leadership, only 1% of the people feel safe”;

Can Hishammuddin explain his double standards which makes him so blind and actionless with regard to the inflammatory and seditious spoutings by certain media, particularly those owned and controlled by Umno, totally reckless and irresponsible in exploiting the “race and religion” card in utter disregard and contempt for Najib’s 1Malaysia concept and yet his instant and ferocious reaction to a report like that of the resignation of the Inspector-General of Police – which would be very commonplace in developed countries which Malaysia aspires to become?

Ex-S'wak chief rapped for discriminating against Kelantan

PAS leaders have slammed Umno for running out of “credible people” to support their controversial stand that Kelantan was not entitled to oil royalty payments.

“This shows how desperate Umno is. But the more they try to hoodwink the people, the worse it is for their party,” PAS vice president Mahfuz Omar (PIC) told Harakahdaily.

“It is really strange when Prime Minister Najib Razak refuses to accept the words of the architects of the Petroleum Development Act but instead depends on old politicians who do not have first-hand knowledge of the federal law to support Umno’s lies.”

Mahfuz was referring to comments made by former Sarawak chief minister Abdul Rahman Yakub that Kelantan was not entitled to receive cash payments unless the petroleum produced came from within three nautical miles of its shores.

Double standards

However, the 82-year old East Malaysian politician could not explain why the Umno-BN federal government paid Terengganu oil royalty then.

Oil from Kelantan, Terengganu, Sabah and Sarawak are mostly found beyond the three nautical mile limit.

“This blind support from Tun Rahman is most regrettable and smacks of double standards. He has chosen to discriminate against Kelantan even though he cannot explain why the federal government has been making the same payments to Terengganu,” said Mahfuz.

“Maybe he does not realize he is contributing to the suffering of the ordinary Kelantan people since he is part of the elite group. But it is irresponsible and shameful.

"It also shows his lack of understanding of the Petroleum Development Act and disrespect for Tengku Razaleigh and Salleh Abas."

Contradicting a wealth of legal evidence

Tengku Razaeligh Hamzah is the former finance minister and founding chairman of national oil firm Petronas, while Salleh Abbas is the former lord president of the Federal Court.

Both men were responsible for drafting the Petroleum Development Act 1974 and have said they would be prepared to testify in court that Kelantan was entitled to oil royalty just as Terengganu, Sabah and Sarawak under this law.

Rahman Yakub had claimed that Sabah and Sarawak were different because the British colonial government had declared in 1954 that the territorial waters of the two East Malaysian states extended beyond the three-nautical-mile limit.

However, this view has been rubbished not only by Razaleigh and Abbas but also by the legal fraternity including the Bar Council.

According to Razaleigh, the Petroleum Development Act was drafted to ensure that all Malaysian states that produced petroleum received some form of return from the federal government. A formula of 5 percent of total annual oil production was agreed on by all parties.

PAS-led Kelantan has also pointed to a legal agreement the state inked with the federal government in 1975.

Cracks in BN widening, Gerakan should leave

CAs Umno raises its racial rhetoric and attacks against non-Malay groups, cracks are widening among the component parties it leads in the Barisan Nasional coalition despite efforts by the mainstream media to paper over the growing discontent.

“Race-based politics has always been the hallmark of the BN but Umno has been getting from bad to worse and it is no longer possible for components like MCA, MIC and Gerakan to close one eye,” PAS vice president Mahfuz Omar told Harakahdaily.

“If they continue to act like three blind mice, then their own communities will reject them outright. In fact, the Chinese and Indians no longer respect them. Most Malaysians, even the Malays, think that they serve no purpose but to say ‘yes’ to Umno.”

Time for Gerakan to do more than just talk

Indeed, already-high concern is leaping as Prime Minister Najib Razak covertly sanctions a move by his Umno party to shift from the centrist stance favored by his predecessor Abdullah Badawi to the rightist and ultra-Malay one previously adopted by former premier Mahathir Mohamad.

Despite efforts by Najib to disguise this shift by making use of Malay rights NGOs such as Perkasa and MPM to lead Umno's charge, Malaysians have seen through the move and have condemned him and his party for the ploy.

On Wednesday, even the usually docile Gerakan publicly urged Umno not to open its doors to Kulim Bandar Baru MP Zulkfifli Noordin, who was sacked by his PKR party for indiscipline and playing the racial card.

"It is time for Gerakan to leave the BN. It is no point for them or the MCA and MIC to just keep talking," PKR strategic director Tian Chua told Harakahdaily.

“The fact that Umno is still willing to accept such reactionaries, while PAS has rejected them on the grounds of principles, underscores the dangerous and uncaring path Umno is treading just to maintain power.”

No longer an era of racial rabble-rousing

Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin had earlier said Umno was open to anyone including the controversial Zulkifli, who has been widely condemned for using religion and race to bolster his political popularity.

Although Zulkifli has said he will now become an Independent MP, there is little doubt that he and several other recalcitrant lawmakers who quit PKR recently amid corruption allegations will vote on the side of the Umno-BN in Parliament.

Meanwhie PAS, the second largest Malay political party, has said it would reject Zulkifli’s application if he applied. Although the party constitution allows anyone to apply, it is up to the leaders whether or not they wish to accept the person.

“To gain the political upper hand through unprincipled means and accepting people of low quality does not speak well of Umno and BN,” said Mahfuz.

“Why should Malaysians trust them any more when they so openly use racism and religion in their politics and the way they govern the country, even at the expense of the peace and security of the nation?

“This is no longer the era of racial rabble-rousing but one of civil society and harmony. Malaysia needs new politics not stale tricks to take it forward.”
