Anwar Ibrahim / MUST READ / Pakatan Rakyat / Racism

Anwar’s play acting is encyclopedic! (Part 2)

Anwar Ibrahim had said these words 2 weeks ago. Sounded sweet to the ears of almost everyone. The Star had almost given him a messiah-like personality. But lets look at it from a different stand point shall we?

He said:

Malaysia belongs to all races, says Anwar

While protecting the rights of the Malays, the Chinese and Indians must also be given an assurance on their citizenship and position in the country, said Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

The Permatang Pauh Member of Parliament said the country belonged to all races and not to just one community.

“With such an assurance, it does not mean that you will be sacrificing the rights of another community,” he said during a breakfast gathering with Permatang Pauh PKR Wanita members in Yayasan Aman in Penanti yesterday.

Anwar said when Independence was declared on Aug 31, 1957, the Malays, Chinese and Indians were assured the freedom of speech and freedom to form associations.

What he was saying was not racist in nature. In fact, he would certainly be applauded by the Pakatan rakyat supporters, especially the non Malays.

What if we we rephrase his first paragraph into this?

“In order to protect the rights of the Malays, they must be given assurances that their rights are not trampled or extinguished by the Chinese and the Indians.”

Now, if an Umno leader had said the above, I will bet my whole life savings that this sentence will be viewed as racist by the Pakatan Rakyat’s supporters. But why then would it be viewed as racist when in fact the sentence is just rephrasing Anwar’s original words?

In a way, this is what Anwar is also saying. But when he says he is championing the Malay rights, he is not a racist. Then why are the Umno leaders be deemed as one? This is the question that needs to be answered by the Umno leaders themselves.

Furthermore, if I ask Anwar Ibrahim what are the rights of another community which were sacrificed in order for his own race to prosper, I reckon, he could not even answer it properly. Especially when he was in the government for 16 years before, he was very mute on this very subject. In fact, he was against any steps to embolden the other communities.

As if there were not enough assurances already by the government to the non Malays. Even though we opted for integration, rather than assimilation, many efforts have been made by the BN government that enable the non Malays to still retain their racial identity. Compare this with the minorities in other countries. Their racial identities are being blurred tremendously.

I also agree with Lawyer Kampung’s take on the recent statement by Pakatan Rakyat.

In a more current development, Anwar said this in The Star today;

The Permatang Pauh MP also claimed that the transition to the new Government has been delayed a few days pending the meeting with Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to ensure a smooth and peaceful transition.

He said it was up to Abdullah to agree to the meeting and its date.

Anwar said that in a letter submitted to Abdullah on Monday, Pakatan had made four demands to ensure a smooth transition:

1) That Barisan does not hinder or prevent the MPs from acting in accordance with their conscience, constitutional rights and independentjudgement;

2) That the Barisan government should not invoke the Internal Security Act to detain the MPs or any other current Pakatan MPs;

3) That the Barisan government does not invoke emergency laws or police powers or suspend the Constitution or dissolve Parliament; and

4) That the Barisan government shall not impose roadblocks or impede MPs from going to Parliament or any institution of government.

What if Pak Lah says no to all the demands above? Should Anwar then go back home in Bukit Segambut and call it a day?

What the Pakatan Rakyat supporters failed to realise is, if the MPs defect today and tender their resignation from their parties in Barisan Nasional and join Pakatan Rakyat, Barisan Nasional does not have locus standi to invoke all the 4 points above. Because, legally, Barisan Nasional is not in power anymore. Therefore, all the government’s machinery is legally controlled by the Pakatan Rakyat.

So why the demands? Wouldn’t it be easier if Anwar and the traitors just hold their press conference today and declare that they are in Pakatan Rakyat as at this day. Pak Lah will have no choice but to step down as he is no longer hold the majority of the Dewan Rakyat!

Why all the fuss in negotiating with Pak Lah? Does Anwar think the people are idiots? All this hullabaloo is just trying to confuse the people and not make him look ridiculous to all the promises he made since April 23rd;

KOTA KINABALU: The Pakatan Rakyat is in a position to form the Federal Government and it will be done no later then Malaysia Day on Sept 16, according to Parti Keadilan Rakyat adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim.

Reiterating that the three-party alliance had the numbers and was in no rush to replace Barisan Nasional, the former deputy prime minister said it would all be in the timing of the announcement.

“God willing we will be there. If not next month, the following month, if not June or July, on Merdeka (Aug 31) or Malaysia Day. I think we should not exceed beyond that,” he told reporters on arrival in Sabah on Wednesday.

In my opinion, along with Pak Lah, Anwar is also under siege. Not by anyone, but by his own lust of power. He knows the premiership which by the way has never been in his grasp, is drifting further away with the advent of the Dream Team. Plus, his sodomy trials is due to continue next week.

Making excuses here and there can be very weary. Even writing this article proves to be very tiring for me. Just bring the MPs and make them resign from their parties and all this so called meetings of negotiation will be redundant. But Anwar did not take this easier and more peaceful path did he? Why?

Only rational people can answer this.

How thick is his encyclopedia anyway?

  1. Hey friend, we are not interested in BN and its agenda for years to come because they have done enough damage to the economy and well-being of the Malaysian community. Whether or not Anwar is telling the truth, we are prepared to face the consequences. Too much rampant corruption, unbridled power abuse and arrogance is just too much for anyone to stomach and everything is done in plain daylight right under our noses. So sod off, all he is saying is that whatever rights are protected, it should not be at the expense of the others’ rights and even as simple as this is, it’s hard for someone like you to understand… this is the win-win manifesto for the era…for all races. Let the last apartheid regime in the world come crumbling down with the guards of the old era.

    JMD : Err.. which apartheid regime are you talking about? Do you really know what an apartheid regime really is? Is our government since 1957 is actually an apartheid regime? Last time I check, all races can hop into one bus together without any segregation.

    And the BN had done enough damage to the economy and well being of its people? Really? I can understand if you criticise Pak Lah’s way of managing the country. But to criticise the govt since 1957 that they had damaged the economy is really, an off track assessment. Should I give you the relevant economic data?

    But anyway, thank you for commenting and visiting this blog. Your justification in defending Anwar’s tactics is quite exemplary.

  2. jmd,
    I respectfully disagree with you. You’ve mentioned time and time again in most of your articles that there’s a need to ‘overhaul’ the tip of the leadership iceberg that is umno. You’ve bring upon your case that NEP is good for the country but futher clean up need to be executed in order to curb those loafers ‘ali baba biar papa asal bergaya’ mentality businessmen clad as umno ketua bahagians cronies cum ‘suitcase porter’. You knew how rampant money will be thrown during ‘Mesyuarat bahagian’. You knew how BN machinery was oiled by billions of ringgit. You knew what ‘kickbacks’ and patronage are in the world of malaysian construction industries. You knew all these and the way I see it that you’re an oldtimer umno schememaker who due to the love to umno would trade the last penny in your pocket rather than seeing umno losing power to the opposition. I salute you for your intense systematic castrating of Anwar and his ambition, but well I guess you can’t discount the fact that the great schemer Himself will decide the outcome, not yours or mine.

    Good day.

    JMD : Thank you Johan. And thank you for understanding most of my writings. Whichever party that comes to power, their mode of ‘oiling’ the machinery will be the same. For instance, all through the years, there are no differences between the Democrat or the Republican in running their machinery whenever anyone of them rule the senate. I deplore money politics. And money politics in Umno had risen ever since Anwar became DPM in 1993. It is becoming more rampant now. It is my wish that Ku Li can at least manage money politics to the bare minimum. To eradicate it fully would be a dream come true too. Ku Li was not involved in Umno during its hey day in the 90’s. That is why, I would put my faith in him, rather than Anwar to clean the government.

    But to say that I am an Umno oldtimer schememaker could not be more off the mark. In fact, I have no close ties with any of the old and current Umno leaders. I am just a kid if you want to compare me with the real Umno oldtimers. Since I have never received any ‘kickbacks’ or patronage from them, I will not lose any money if Umno lose power.

    True, only the Almighty will decide the outcome. Hopefully, Anwar will learn about this too. Thank you for visiting this blog and reading nearly all my articles. Really appreciate it. Feel free to email my web address to any of your friends.

  4. Why should the sentence be altered again when it was already made as it is?

    So anyway, why judge Anwar for his past when he is in fact in 2008? When Umar Al-Khattab professed Islam, do you see him as someone who drinks and buries his child? When Abu Sufian repented and professes Islam people acknowledged him as a Muslim and not the old ignorant Quraish. Why when someone changes his view for the better he must be judged by his past? Isn’t that a rigid view of men? Are men not susceptible to change?

    His prediction got a little out of hand of course due to certain acts of the government. I’m not trying to defend his claim, however, if he does affect change even after 16.9.08 wouldn’t that in effect be the gist of it all? I’m sure the Dream Team could do well to change that, but would UMNO really change and do away with it’s corrupt practices? Would Abdullah and Najib allow the change to happen with all the money and power they’ve got?

    JMD : Thank you for reading this blog. I was trying to prove a point when I rephrased the sentence. Hopefully you are smart enough to see the point made.

    You made a fine example by using the Prophet’s friends in concurrent with Anwar’s past and his changed stand. But you missed out on one thing. Saidina Umar and Abu Sufian changed their religion. From paganism to Islam. Different ball of game altogether I might say.

    I am speaking in terms of his principles and views. Which can always be changed in a flash, unlike religion. And Anwar’s change of stripes is only accompanied by self interests. If he is not consistent, he will lose credibility. Remember why Pak Lah lost his credibility? Because of his flip flopping and ‘cakap tak serupa bikin’.

    When you lose credibility, you will not be seen as trustworthy. With this latest antics of him, he will not be taken seriously in the future.

    Thank you.

    I am astounded by the fact that Malaysians fail to see that corruption and misuse of power are not exclusive of race, religion or political affiliation.

  8. JMD,

    Interesting choice of picture of Anwar raising his middle finger to adjust his glasses. Symbolic of his plan to f*^k us all you think ?

    Isn’t it amazing that Pakatan supporters are trying to discredit BN’s economic policy? Pak Lah aside, BN has done a credible job in raising Malaysia’s economic profile. We’ve had an amazing growth under BN.

    Wasn’t it Anwar who almost took the country to the dogs when he decided to implement his “austerity measures” during the Asian Financial Crisis ? Wasn’t it Anwar who happily announced and cheered by the free marketeers in the United States for the need of “creative destruction” and allow Malaysian companies to go bust and consequently put Malaysians by the thousands to be unemployed ? Wasn’t it PAS grandiose plan to sell KLIA, Putrajaya, Twin Tower if they were voted into power in 98 ? Wasn’t it PAS who critised the Government in imposing capital control ? Wasn;t it DAP who criticise the building of the Penang Bridge ? Didn’t the prophet of doom in the coalition who strenuously criticised Proton in its inception ?

    As Pakatan’s coaliation partners back then during the Financial Crisis hopped on the bandwagon led by the West and joined a chorus of criticism of bailout, the US Federal Reserve intervened and bailed out LTCM, nary a word of disgust at the hypocrisy.

    These days, bailout by the West is almost expected if their homegrown companies about to go bust, from the French rescue plan of CreditLyonnaise, the Brits rescue plan of Northern Rock and the US bailout of Bear Stearns.

    As to calling BN an apartheid regime, if you need a reminder, Anwar did not resign from the Government on the basis of principled objection towards NEP, he was literally kicking and screaming about his ouster from the ruling party. Most of people in cahoots with Anwar was happily licking their fingers at every opportunity NEP had to offer. Tak de masalah pulak pasal halal haram !

    At the risk of repeating it ad nauseam, you dont see Anwar and his ilk feeling any sense of remorse for reaping the benefits of NEP. Despite crumbs of cookies on their shirts they choose to level criticism at the same cookie jar that they had their filling. Their criticism is more about not being able to get their hands in it.

    I have no qualms about man or woman who seek repentance and redemption. But you don’t hear Anwar and his people saying sorry for being part of the “apartheid” system.

    JMD : Your analysis greatly complimented several of my other articles. Thank you for the reminder of several relevant past events. As for the picture, well… a picture can always say a thousand words🙂

  9. Once a fan of Anwar during my idealistic student days in late 1980s, …the Abrar, Armani suits, rhetorics, and qouting the same Quranic verses for milage made me see he is a con.

    Also in the early 1990s, vividly remembered that the Malays in Johor (especially JB} were disgusted with the way Muhyiddin ran things as MB in the state. Malay reserve lands were being considered for sale…some even said that anything was for sale during his reign.

    Has the man changed or were these baseless allegations. I was only in my early twenties then, did not know much. If he was such a crook, how can he be easily forgiven…or is he just the least of all crooks?

    Pls enlighten me JMD coz after Tun M, I have yet to pledge my allegiance to a real LEADER.

  10. I actually understand the sentence alteration but I would say yours gave a different meaning altogether. But that’s not my material point.

    When I gave the example of Umar and Abu Suffian, I was relating it to the matter of morality and standing – it need not be of religion or spiritual guidance. Yes Anwar’s standing isn’t the same as it is now. But then is then. We could say that it is the Pagan ways then and the Islamic ways now. After all, he is only conveying good messages. His character then should not drown his current message.

    As for the date; it has never been a change of policy or principle. It is after all a date. The policy is still the same, defection. As a Muslim I am taught; we plan but it is Allah who decides. The plan is still there, but the decision, whether it be of date or numbers, is up to Allah. Unlike Abdullah who does not have a plan and flip flops as he likes. His credibility is loss because of that. But Anwar’s ‘plan’ brought about hope. Which is something Malaysia needs. So all is not lost.

    JMD : Thank you for your comment. I do not wish to embark into deeper theological discussions. But plans made by men, are fulfilled only by the will of God. We also need to ask ourselves when in certain instances, our plans do not come into fruition. Is it because of God’s will too? Of course. And why is that? Only He knows. We can only speculate.

    many have seen the anwar-abdullah/kj relationship as worthy of more scrutiny.

    if we look at everything the PM and his inner circle have done since anwar’s return, one can almost say “with enemies like abdullah/kj, anwar doesn’t need friends!”

    now this so-called “meeting” to ensure smooth transition for “the sake of the rakyat” after what is tantamount to mounting a coup d’état?

    if a change of government really comes of this “meeting” then it behoves the rakyat to reflect on how little regard the dark schemers have for the stability of country in order to achieve their plausible conjoined goals, be it personal or at the behest of external parties.

  12. For everything that has happened, I would say it took us 51 years to fully understand what it means to be an independence nation. 51 years is nothing compared to 497 years being concurred. 51 years is just a period of lesson learnt.

    (1) How we have failed to uphold proper Islam as the main pillar in nation building. Since 1957, Islamic approaches were shadowed by the western lifestyle left by British and that is the cause of wrong attitude of the Malays what we have seen all this while which contributes to the wrong attitude in politics. Not just politics, but also social. Entertainment, pubs, reality shows, celebrities whom has forgotten their roots, sex scandals, bribe, corruption, power abuse …

    (2) We have also failed to be consistent in many things especially education. So many changes we done in order to equip the young generation in becoming the so call developed nation. Priority was given to science and technology and perhaps we have forgotten to teach them in understanding the history correctly. And now we are listening to so many channels of thought, interpreting history in their own version, which is the main cause in breaking up the unity. Why was in the past, all races can hop into one bus together without any segregation (as you quoted) ? That is because they had fully understood the meaning of living the historical days and what it takes to live together, which is now, history to us.

    (3) NEP and all its continual policies ; it was all developed to keep balance in nationhood survival. But as for the Malays, it has unfortunately breed generation that only knows how they should be fed. Perhaps there was not enough space in implementing the policies together with educating them to change their mind set as they grow up.

    Three is enough. Besides, it is all just what my mind threw out and no proper analysis were done in addressing it : P

    But, those points are the things that I think should be among the future improvement agendas.. especially to the real warlords whom are going to raise their swords soon.

    If there is no change, then we shall really see with our own eyes the downfall of Malaysia .. just after half a decade of independence, not even 10% of the invasion period

    sorry, this one is long ..

  14. ‘Jebat Must Die’, a fitting phrase, and die he must.

    I just want to pass a message to the so-called highly educated Malay minority who are supporting his cause. We are sent to the highest level of learning institution to learn about the complex and different theorem and ideology so that we could think for ourselves rationally and selectively pick and choose which ones are the best to apply in our context. It is so absurd and naive to generically apply on blanket basis the concept of equitable, fairness for all, globalisation without taking into account the dire consequences.

    If it is up to the US they would want all economies to submit totally to the concept of equitable and globalisation so that they could continue to trample and muscle their way in and exploit everything to their benefit. Please tell me if you honestly believe the US care less about what would happen to the developing nations other than anything that would enrich themselves.

    And just what is the relevance of all this. It is the same concept that is being championed by PR! give it any name, Malaysia for Malaysians (pathetic!! what, we are not all malaysians before this), and Malaysia Day?!! To even say that out loud is just downright insulting. ‘Macam kacang lupakan kulit’! What happened to the Malaysia that we all are so proud of for the past 51 years!

    To let out emotion gets the better of ourselves and throw away all facts and put a blind eyes on our statistics of achievement just to back an uncertain and unknown cause are foolish. So does being so ‘taksub’ to a political figure such that of DSAI and all his ploy. How does he realistically plan to please everyone to create a better malaysian and malaysia? If you can reasonably come out with a concrete answer to that question, hell, count me in!

    If I could losely demographically describe our divide now, we are successfully (after the abuse usage of the racial card) being splitted into 3 groups, the non-malays, the minority malays and the majority malays. The division is so apparent recently that even the non-malay component parties of are harping on the racial issue (a separate issue which I shall not broach here) without a flinch on the bigger threat on the nation peace and stability.

    To these minority malays, i call on you to realise and not be blinded by DSAI and his antics. Please be smart enough with all the money spent on your education to at least lift the veil and consider who the true DSAI is, the champion of all cause that he himself has no idea how to piece together. If you think that he will deliver a better malaysian and malaysia, better and different than we were before, think again. We should be intelligent enough to not just question what is the objective, but how does he wish to implement it?

    I said this before and i would say it again, to shake peace and stability of a nation just for own sake of political ambition is downright irresponsible. And that says a lot about a character of the man and his greed for power. No nation will survive racial chaos and divide.

    Until the DAP, PKR and PAS could overcome their ideology divide and come to a agreement, conclusively defined themselves in the context of “better malaysian and malaysia”, realistically, we are not ready to see PR to rule the country peacefully. Let’s not be blinded in time of chaos by empty and differing promises without deliverables. I sincerely belief that they would be a formidable opponent and healthy for the development of the nation if they could sort out their internal ideology differences, but at the current moment they are just not.

    The common goal of seizing power and destroy UMNO is just not good enough of a reason to pool together and rule. Let’s not forget that we have built the nation on racial unity. Until they are ready to define their “fair to all” and “Malaysia for Malaysian”, it would be foolish to bet our savings on them.

    Until then, we would have to reinvent the current formula, rid of the highest degree of corruption, take a step back and perhaps redefine ourselves as Malaysians with moderation and realistic demand from all communities.

    faham english literally but not that good in oral/writing. since living in the east coast more than 15 yrs, and very limited exposure to english speakers, sadly it has become very rusted. jadi kenalah tulis campur2 to xpress myself here.

    saya jarang nak masuk campur hal2 yang saya tak pandai, akan memperbodohkan diri sendiri jika kita berlagak lebih tahu dari yang sebenarnya. Saya tidak bergaul dengan org politik, malah takada masa nak duduk minum kopi sambil borak2, tak pernah keluar sembang2 di kedai kopi. my life is my work and my family. Tapi jeling2 juga dari jauh..

    Tapi dengan apa yg terjadi akhir2 ni, terasa kena ambil tahu juga sebab ia melibatkan kehidupan saya juga. sedih kerana angkara beberapa orang, negara mungkin akan kacau. sedih melihat org2 kampung yang agak tertutup pemikiran, terlalu taksub dengan apa saja yang keluar dari mulut ustaz2.

    Kalau ustaz kata kita sokong anwar, maka mereka akan membuta tuli sokong.maaf kalau seperti merendahkan pemikiran org kampung tapi ini kenyataan. contoh – ustaz kata ubat gigi colgate haram, satu kampung akan beli ubat gigi mukmin ( sebab bunyi islamik..) serius ! orang KL mungkin anggap lucu tapi inilah yang terjadi, dan masih berleluasa. dan dari segi undi, tidak ada bezanya saudara JMD, atau Joe atau shayzwan atau orang2 kampung kerana satu orang satu undi !

    sewaktu perhimpunan BERSIH di KL lalu, kampung saya eksport 3 bas peserta demo ! atas nama keadilan, cegah rasuah, korupsi , negara Islam ….

    Tapi semua itu rhetoric semata2 ! sapa pun boleh cakap nak hapus rasuah, hak samarata, tapi ada sapa2 yang berikan CARAnya ? sama juga dengan PAS yang sekian lamanya melaungkan negara Islam tapi sehingga kini masih tidak ada detailnya…undang2 Islam? perlembagaan? setakat kata ikut Quran dan sunnah, semua orang boleh cakap. Tapi dalam bentuk bertulis yang boleh di baca, di bincang (mungkin takboleh, sebab kalau bangkang akan dianggap murtad ) dan yang penting, boleh diguna pakai.

    Hal yang sama juga saya kaitkan dengan DSAI, dia boleh laungkan segala2 yang positif, tak cukup boleh refer dictionary, tapi detailnya ? DSAI akan pastikan hak samarata, gantikan DEB dengan yang lebih baik… tapi apa? mananya? kenapa tidak dibentangkan supaya rakyat boleh kaji?

    Paklah ? nak komen pun malas..

    maaf, saya sendiri tak tahu apa benda yang saya tulis🙂 cuma sedih negara menjadi mainan rebutan antara beberapa orang yang berpengaruh, dan rakyat jadi mangsa, diperbodohkan mereka yang inginkan kuasa.

With Anwars failure to name the froggers and forming a new governmnet, it is the best time for BN/UMNO to consolidate its position by PakLah relinquishing his post to a more capable and respected leader. If PakLah persist then it only shows of his self interest rather than the party and nation. Hopefully someone out there are plotting 5 steps ahead rather than just reacting to Anwars repetitive tunes.

    TDM latest post is spot on as always. Not just UMNO, all the BN components are responsible for a stable nation. All these outright open mud slinging is not in the spirit of united BN and is just what Anwars was hoping for.

Carlsberg factory and the mega pig farm project.If I recall properly, there is a certain party that goes all out championing the Muslims right claiming that K’jaan S’ngor ‘makan duit haram’.But when they are in power? Nothing happened?Why?Because they still have to cooperate with other religions and races, and their number is more now in the exco for all i know.They even claim the pig project benefits them,tak haram pulak?? I wonder.But when people starts complaining,hey,just blame it to the last government that approved it?now you have the power,i say just stop the project?Simple logic?Maybe i’m the one who’s stupid!! But people are already clouded to judge simple logics, IOIO

    This simple example shows that all we do is bulls***ting all the time.Please go find proper work and feed your families rather than blaming others all the time.

    Ps:JMD have you mentioned the chronologies when all these havoc started?sorry i didnt read all your previous postings.does these things rise up way before or after DSAI were released? you would do a marvellous job i guess with all your facts??haha. as far as i can remember, 2006 and 2007 still aman damai??correct me if i’m wrong,maybe because that time i was still studying in the university.

  25. Saya dapat news dibawah di petik dari forum TKO, ada sesape yang keje

    Assalamualikum JMD, checking my mail just now, from my school mate many many many moons ago, through our yahoogroups.

    Do you heard anything like this? Any comments ……

    ” Maklumat terkini bahawa perkhidmatan Mohd Hassan Marican (Presiden dan Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Petronas) kini sedang menghampiri tempoh akhirnya.

    Berdasarkan kepada maklumat yang diterima, kemungkinan besar Mohd Hassan Marican tidak akan disambung tempoh perkhidmatannya walaupun beliau berupaya melakukannya.

    Beberapa pihak telah menunjukkan hasrat mereka untuk mengambilalih kedudukan Mohd Hassan Marican ini dan kini sedang dalam proses melakukan lobi (berskala mega). Semua lobi-melobi ini tertumpu kepada Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. Ada yang melobi dengan wang dan ada pula yang melobi dengan cara-cara yang lain.

    Tetapi ada dua orang calon telah bersaing diantara mereka dan dikhabarkan bahawa kedua-dua mereka mendapat restu daripada Abdullah Ahmad Badawi untuk mengambilalih kedudukan Mohd Hassan Marican sebagai Presiden dan
    Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Petronas. Salah satu dari dua calon ini dijangkakan akan dilantik menggantikan Mohd Hassan Marican manakala seorang lagi dijangkakan akan menduduki jawatan Ahli Lembaga Pengarah Petronas.

    Calon yang begitu kuat melobi untuk menggantikan tempat Mohd Hassan Marican dikenalpasti adalah Khairy Jamaludin. Beliau khabarnya telah berjaya meyakinkan Abdullah Ahmad Badawi bahawa beliau mampu untuk menerajui Petronas dan memangkinkan pertumbuhan dan pemerolehan Petronas dalam jangka masa singkat. Abdullah Ahmad Badawi juga dikhabarkan telah bersetuju jika Khairy Jamaludin dilantik kejawatan tersebut dan sedia mengarahkan Petronas untuk membuat perlantikan tersebutsebaik tempoh akhir perkhidmatan Mohd Hassan Marican tamat.

    Dengan pengaruh wang dan lobi yang besar, Khairy Jamaludin percaya bahawa beliau dapat menerajui Petronas dalam masa terdekat. Ini dibantu dengan sokongan berterusan (wang dan kuasa) yang datangnya dari Singapura melalui Temasek Group.

    Berdasarkan kepada analisis semasa dan pasaran AsiaTenggara, Temasek Group amat berminat untuk menguasai Petronas demi untuk mengukuhkan aliran tunai dan kewangan mereka. Buat masa ini hanya cabang industri Minyak dan Gas sahaja yang masih belum dikuasai sepenuhnya olehTemasek Group. Beberapa transaksi kewangan berskala besar telah dikesan dibiayai oleh Temasek Group kepada beberapa individu dalam industri Minyak dan Gas tempatan termasuklah kepada pihak yang membekalkan khidmat sokongan kepada industri yang sama.

    Dengan penguasaan dalam industri Pelabuhan (seperti masa telah dikenalpasti bahawa beberapa pelabuhan utama di Malaysia kini telah dipindahkan sahamnya kepada proksi Temasek Group) tempatan, maka dapat dijangkakan bahawa Temasek Group kini sedang berusaha membuat beberapa pemerolehan lagi demi memantapkan organisasi mereka.

    Proksi-Proksi Temasek Group di Malaysia kini nampaknya sedang ditimbunkan dengan wang ringgit dan jaminan keselamatan sehinggakan mereka sanggup menggadaikan aset negara. Berdasarkan kepada scenario semasa, SCOMI Group juga dikenalpasti telah mendapat laba daripada usahasama haram dengan Temasek Group.

    Jika Khairy Jamaludin dibenarkan menjadi Presiden dan Ketua Pegawai Eksekutif Petronas, maka jangan kita terkejut jika akhirnya Petronas dikuasai oleh Temasek Group (Singapura). Kita wajar menyekat perkara ini daripada menjadi kenyataan. Abdullah Ahmad Badawi memang mudah dikuasai oleh Khairy Jamaludin. Jangan pula kita biarkan Kamaludin Abdullah Ahmad Badawi menjadi Ahli Lembaga Pengarah Petronas kerana ini juga akan menguatkan pengaruh Temasek Group kedalam Petronas.

    Petronas adalah hak Malaysia dan bukannya Singapura. Jangan gadaikan aset negara.

    What I mean is, why not express yourself on those “other” blogs?

    Don’t be afraid or get mad if they don’t publish your comments. At least the blog owner got to read them. haha

    P.S. I sometimes check if my blog comments have been approved or not a few hours after I’d written them, and unfortunately there have been some Pro Pakatan blogs where my comments are censored. Silly me never bothered to note down the blog names.

    But really have no idea why that could be…

    …har har… actually I do.

    “Freedom” of speech as practiced by Pakatan supporters… they are free to stop you expressing when it disagrees with what they think.

    JMD : Sometimes I do leave comments in other pro Pakatan Rakyat’s blog. Just to clear the air or give opinion on certain issues that I find interesting. Usually it will end up with name calling from them and me rolling my eyes with slight amusement.

  29. OF COURSE THIS TYPE OF PARAPHRASING WOULD OFFEND ANYONE IRRESPECTIVE OF RACE …..USING WORDS LIKE TRAMPLED – EXTINGUISHED.

    I can see how you are trying to instigate responses…clever but not too clever. You may say these words mean the same things but you know very it doesn’t.

    JMD : Dear hsk. Thank you for this response. Didn’t know how could the words trampled and extinguish would offend anyone. Especially when we have obvious references of some DAP leaders and anti Umno bloggers blatantly questioning the Article 153 and the Malay special position in the constitution. Some fanatical DAP leaders even made calls to abolish the Malay rights. Is this not synonymous with ‘trample’ and ‘extinguish’?

    This is precisely my point in several of my previous articles before. When the extremists are questioning the Malays’ position and privileges which is enshrined in the law, won’t the Malays have the right to defend it? However instead, the Malays that are defending this law are labeled as racists by the opposition. When in fact, it was the people who made the first offensive remarks are the real racists.

    So, when Anwar said the non Malays must be given assurances, the Malays must be given theirs too.

    Anyway, this is only my opinion. Feel free to disagree.

    Please read my previous posts here and here.

    On a more serious matter, I”m sure you are aware of the news that’s crackling on the net. The PM calling DSAI a “threat to security and economy” which many are interpreting to mean that he may be held under ISA soon.
    From the bottom of my heart, I pray not. We may not agree with his politics, but to lock him up (without trial) is to me a sin.
    What’s your view, JMD?

    JMD : In short, Pak Lah should just let Anwar’s sodomy trials to run smoothly without resorting to the ISA. Anwar posed a bigger threat in 1998 than now. Let him be preoccupied with the charges and let BN start concentrating on the economy.

    Agreed with U JMD. BN should pay more concentration in managing the country economy rather than worrying about Anwar. So funny, Anwar claimed that he has the number but still asking for negotiation with the PM.

    As to the emergency Parliament session, had Anwar got the 30 or so MP to reveal themselves, there would not even be a need to call for a session. So far out of the 30 or so MPs he said are ready to jump into the abyss, only SAPP has come out and declared their withdrawal. Although even that is a guarded one with no public declaration of wanting to join Pakatan.

    I received an SMS on the 16th and was told that Anwar dah dapat 42 kerusi, tapi malangnya 24 dari IKEA, 10 dari Courts Mammoth and 8 dari Fella Design.

    Nak cakap pasal bohong ni, Anwar pun bohong jugak cakap kat blog yang dia guide Malaysia out of the ’98 financial crisis. He’s been continuingly throwing mud at Najib and accusing him or having a part in the death of Altantuya.

    An honest mistake by JMD and you decide to jump on him. Anwar’s transgression is ok ? There is nothing wrong in rooting for a politician but play fair lah.

  38. Lekiu and Freddie,

    Ya, what happened when Teck Lee announced that his party will be moving a no confidence motion against Pak Lah in parliament. The ACA immediately went after him–a clear cut case of initimidation. BN is very fond of initimidating with it’s various powers. And the latest appalling news is that the former duputy president of SAPP who is still the deputy CM of Sabah had revealed that, he implored to AAB to stop arresting Teck Lee. So what does this mean–if you challenge the powers than you will be subjected to harassment and initimidation. An innocent reporter can be arrested under ISA–I just dread to think, if the names of the MPs who want to crossover are revealed, then what will be their plight–I am 100% sure they will be victims of unjust laws like the ISA. So I presume, DSAI is playing a safe game.

    JMD : Thus the huge difference between this current BN and the BN of yesteryears. You are partly correct on the treatment to Yong Teck Lee. Pak Lah’s inability to solve BN’s current problems led him to do the easiest thing, threaten your subordinates into submission.

    Sabah politics is very unique. But to manage them is quite easy. Take for example the case of Pairin Kitingan in 1985 state elections. He was part of the ruling Berjaya Party since the 70’s. But because he did not agree with some of his boss’ policies (Harris Salleh), he resigned from Berjaya Party and established a new party just in time before the state elections. In the end, his newly formed party (PBS) won the majority! And he was elected to be the chief minister of Sabah!

    No ISA action or ACA threats were imposed upon him. ‘Dictator’ Dr Mahathir at that time accepted the mass defection of some Berjaya assemblymen into PBS. Pairin Kitingan went on to become the chief minister all the way till 1994.

    Why in God’s name did Pak Lah allegedly wanted the ACA to investigate Teck Lee is quite surprising. But Pak Lah, much like Anwar is more of a knee jerk politician.

    But another thing that surprises me is, Yong Teck Lee, with all the threats of the ACA imposed upon him, still led SAPP out of Barisan Nasional! Is he not afraid of the threats? I feel that his political resolve is stronger than any danger come what may. And, perhaps, the ACA might not find anything incriminating at all. Till now, there is no clear cut evidence has been produced.

    Are all the potential froggies so cowardly that they have to hide? 30 over MPs willing to defect is quite a huge number. Won’t they find safety in numbers? As stupid as Pak Lah can be, he will not be so stupid to impose ISA or direct the ACA to investigate all those MPs.

    If the froggies are so cowardly and more afraid of the ACA (probably because they are indeed corrupt), then BN should just let these frogs to go into Pakatan Rakyat.

    In the first place, does this list of potential froggies even exist? When even Lim Guan Eng and PAS leaders had not seen this list,

    http://www.nst.com.my/Current_News/NST/Thursday/National/2359220/Article/index_html

    questions will surely arise regarding its credibility.

    Therefore, I presume, Anwar do not have the numbers in the first place. But we shall give him the benefit of the doubt (again) and wait till October 13th. Lets see what kind of play acting he will do next time. Thank you.
