Terse letter to Lim Guan Eng from DAP groups

From Sylvester Goh, via e-mail

Saudara Guan Eng,

We, Pakatan supporters, congratulate you on your perfect, top class performance as Chief Minister of Penang. Your boastful letter head with the tagline, “Penang Best Lah – Envy of true-blood Patriotic Malaysians” make egoistic tyrants like Khir Toyo, Ibrahim Ali turn green with envy.

We did not want to write to you to correct you because we know you will never listen to unffavourable feedback. Your comrades complain about your ego. Since we keep receiving the same mail “Penang Best Lah….” sent by your government-paid cyber troopers, we better give you our feedback nevetheless, before you bring the whole of Pakatan Rakyat down with you.


This was written by a woman born in Egypt as a Muslim.  This is not hearsay, and it will scare you. Make sure you read the paragraph (in red) towards the end. 
Joys of Muslim Women
by Nonie Darwish

In the Muslim faith a Muslim man can marry a child as young as 1 year old and have sexual intimacy with this child, consummating the marriage by 9.  The dowry is given to the family in exchange for the woman (who becomes his slave) and for the purchase of the private parts of the woman, to use her as a toy.

Pairin has forsaken the KDM community

KOTA KINABALU, July 29, 2011: The Solidariti Belia Sabah (SBS) claimed that Tan Sri Joseph Pairin Kitingan has forsaken the KadazanDusunMurut (KDM) community in order to please his UMNO political masters.

It said that the act of betrayal has left the people in a state of despair and hopelessness.

Chua: Tell the truth on IPPs

KOTA KINABALU, July 26, 2011: Member of Parliament for Tawau, Datuk Chua Soon Bui, urged the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water to give the whole picture on the energy industry and Independent Power Producers (IPP) in Malaysia as the increased on the Electricity (Power) tariffs are unfair and unjust to Malaysians especially to those in Sabah.

The facts and figures quoted are just part of the selected truth and she questioned on why the TNB/SESB are holding back the rest of the whole truth.

Of lousy Russian medical college !

Weasley | May 26, 09 4:24pm

I am a medical student from Russia as well. Best part is, I or rather we, did not choose to come here. We are all scholars sent here by either JPA or MARA.

If you were to Google "Moscow Medical Academy" it is ranked by UNESCO as the second best medical university in the world.. Do not be fooled by this because I was one who was fooled as well. Only after I landed in Moscow did I know that the "2nd best in the world" is specifically granted to the Russian medium of this medical school.

‘Biggest ever convoy’ for remote Entilibon

By Luke Rintod of FMT
Mystery abounds over Jeffrey Kitingan's plan to celebrate
Malaysia Day in a remote point in Sabah.
PENAMPANG: Curiosity abounds here over maverick politician ‘s latest move to hold the ‘biggest ever’ Borneo tea party in the interior of Sabah in conjunction with Malaysia Day on Sept 16.

His United Borneo Front (UBF) has scheduled a gathering in Kampung Entilibon, Telupid, some 240 kilometres from here. Entilibon is located in a remote part of Sabah.

Norway killing spree from European eye

By Cedric Daanvey

ANTWERP, Belgium:
Last Friday (July 22, 2011) we were all shocked in Europe to hear that a guy shot 90 teenagers in Norway. Everyone condemns the incidents fiercely, yet I noticed during the interviews that many of the victims were not Norwegian, as I thought before. They were many youngsters from what appears to be muslim origin!!!

Time for Change

We have had 54 years of UMNO-N rule and have things really gotten any better? The rich appear to get richer, whilst the numbers who make up the poor, are increasing. The old class system was royalty versus the serfs. Then it was the colonialists against the Malayans. Now it looks like it is the Umnoputras versus the rest.

The Umnoputras are the new elite. Even royalty depends on the largesse of those who lead UMNO-BN to get funding from the civil list. When it suits them, BN will use emotional blackmail on the Malays to say that their heartland and their birthright is being threatened.

Tengku Razaleigh & Friends


The launch of Angkatan Amanah Merdeka (Amanah) last Friday by Tengku Razaleigh was not well reported by the mainstream media. That’s not at all surprising, but it’s still regrettable. Any movement—political or otherwise—that seeks to promote unity in the country deserves support from all quarters.

We are a divided country; that is obvious for anyone to see. To know that some of our erstwhile leaders (mainly from BN) are getting together to declare “enough is enough” and target the present malaise gives hope to many Malaysians.

The man who would be PM

But we failed to take into consideration one very important point. And this one very important point is Dr Mahathir is a more seasoned politician than we gave him credit for. And the script for the final scenario was written by him: his puppet Najib became Prime Minister instead of Ku Li who wanted then to be ‘independent’, reform the government, and offer the opposition a role in the government under a Unity Government.

Raja Petra Kamarudin 
Why is Umno quiet about Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah and his Amanah? The answer is that they simply can’t do anything about it.

Even among Umno members there is increasing disquiet about how things are managed.

Saifuddin Abdullah’s recent ‘out-of-line’ statements and Khairy Jamaluddin’s conscientious objections are only tips of the icebergs.

To sack Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah from Umno is to
precipitate the party's own implosion.
Tengku Razaleigh is merely pointing out the realities. He is still an Umno member – so what can Umno do at the moment?

A good joke on what happened during Najib - Queen Elizabeth encounter

Malaysia PM Najib Razak asked the Queen, "Your Majesty, how do you run such an efficient
government? Are there any tips you can give to me?"

" Well," said the Queen, "the most important thing is to surround yourself with intelligent people."

Najib frowned, and then asked, " But how do I know the people around me are really intelligent?"

Pakatan will revamp education in Sabah, Sarawak

If elected Pakatan Rakyat has pledged to return power to
manage the education system to Sabah and Sarawak.
KOTA KINABALU: Promises are coming thick and fast from both the ruling Barisan Nasional (BN) and the opposition Pakatan Rakyat in an attempt to woo the electorate in Sabah and Sarawak ahead of the 13th general election.

While the BN has opted for tried and tested but threadbare coat of incentives that have failed to deliver the goods in either state after close to 50 years since independence, the opposition coalition is committing to real change in both states.

Kenyataan penuh Anwar Ibrahim tuntut pembebasan 6 pemimpin PSM

Oleh Anwar Ibrahim
Saya menuntut pemerintah agar segera membebaskan enam pemimpin Parti Sosialis, iaitu Ahli Parlimen Sungai Siput, Dr Michael Jeyakumar, M Sarasvathy, Choo Chon Kai, M Sugumaran, A Letchumanan dan R Saras Babu tanpa sebarang syarat. Sebelum ini alasan menahan enam yang terbabit dikatakan kerana terlibat dengan aktiviti subversif. Akan tetapi ternyata itu merupakan helah pemerintah untuk memburuk burukkan Bersih 2.0. semata-mata.

Selepas permohonan Habeas Corpus, alasan penahanan bertukar pula kepada terbabit merancang Perhimpunan Aman Bersih. Alasan yang berdolak dalik ini menjadi bukti penahanan 6 orang tersebut tidak berasas sama sekali.

Bankruptcy now firmly in sight for Malaysia?

By Maclean Patrick of Malaysia Chronicle

Amidst all the racial and religious rhetoric served up by the politicians of the day, Malaysia is facing a far greater problem. The various political entities in Malaysia can throw all the mud they want at each other, and fight over who should be the next this and that, but if left unchecked; there may not be much of a country to govern within the next two to three years.

Salleh to walk on Aug 13, says Ramadan a ‘non-issue’

KUCHING - Former PBB strongman Datuk Salleh Jafaruddin said today that he would participate in the MoCS ‘Walk for Democracy and Reforms’ slated for August 13 in Kuching.

“I will be there with my supporters. I also urge Sarawakians to turn up in support of MoCS’s agenda for change and urgent political reforms in the state,” he said.

Salleh, a cousin of Sarawak Chief Minister Abdul Taib Mahmud, contested in the April 16 state election in Balingian under the auspices of MoCS.

Selangor records best financial result in 28 years

Selangor state assembly was told that the state government's revenue increased by RM200 million during the first six months of this year.

To a question by Sekinchan state assemblyman Ng Swee Lim, Menteri Besar Abdul Khalid Ibrahim (left) said that the state's cash reserve stood at RM918 million at the end of 2010, RM1,100 million at June 30, 2011.

Is Jho Low a Trojan horse?

I sometimes wonder whether this is genuine stupidity or whether Jho Low is a Trojan horse who is doing all this very cleverly and intentionally  to accelerate Najib’s downfall. Why allow Najib’s enemies easy access to ammunition? Jho Low seems to be offering Rosmah’s and Najib’s head to their enemies on a silver platter.

Raja Petra Kamarudin

“Jho Low pays record price for NY condo, nearby to Rosmah's favourite jeweller,” said Wong Choon Mei of Malaysia Chronicle on 21 July 2011. In that story she goes on to say:

Remember Jho Low? Yes, apart from Paris Hilton, whizz-kid Jho is also very close to Prime Minister Najib Razak's wife Rosmah Mansor. In fact, the 29-year old Penang boy has just bought a super-luxury penthouse in New York at a sky-high price that has set tongues wagging amongst the property agents there.

More powerful Sabah Education Director if Pakatan Rakyat takes over Govt

By Ezra Haganez
KOTA KINABALU: Sabah and Sarawak can look forward to a more liberalised and decentralised education system under a Pakatan Rakyat Federal Government. But only if PR takes over the Government from ruling Barisan Nasional, that's it.

PKR Vice President, Tian Chua, said PR is aware of the complains from Sabah leaders that the state education director has become less and less powerful lately in determining the management of its education system as the ruling BN has adopted a  more centralising policy on the two East Malaysian states.

How much you paid for Najib and Muhyiddin residence

KUALA LUMPUR, June 28 — The official residences of the prime minister and his deputy cost the taxpayer RM48.7 million in the last five years for rent, repairs, electricity and water, Datuk Seri Mohamed Nazri Aziz has revealed.

The minister in the Prime Minister’s Department said this in his written response to Siti Zailah Mohd Yusoff (PAS-Rantau Panjang) last week. Repair work on the homes for the same period amounted to RM3,581,744.78 while electricity cost totalled RM10,267,868.15 and water RM1,967,386.55, he said.

‘No political agenda in deporting French lawyer’

Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein says William Bourdon was
deported due to visa violation like making a speech in Penang.
KUALA LUMPUR: Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein said that there was no political agenda in the deportation of French human rights lawyer William Bourdon. The minister said he was deported due to “visa non-compliance” and for making a speech in Penang.

“It’s due to a visa violation. There are certain things tourists cannot do. I don’t know what it is, but one cannot give a speech,” he told reporters today.

In Malaysia, When in Doubt, Blame the Jews

By Rabbi Abraham Cooper, Huffington Post
It's time for Malaysian leaders to grow up. Relying on big-lie Jewish conspiracies is no substitute for honest and transparent governance.

On July 9, 20,000 Malaysians gathered in Kuala Lumpur to demand more transparency in electoral laws in connection with next year's national elections.

Police unleashed tear gas and chemical-laced water on the demonstrators and temporarily detained nearly 1,700 of them. According to reports, authorities also detained six opposition activists without trial and accused them of trying to use the rally to spread communism. Police said they found T-shirts and other materials linked to communist figures.

Boss beaten up by employees 伙计打老闆?

Govt still denying the Police did not shoot tear gas or water cannon into Tung Shin Hospital. Govt still insists Bersih 2.0 supporter was violence when they were walking peacefully, chatting, singing, laughing and smiling. Govt insists they have video to show that Bersih 2.0 were the one who started violence.

Very moving article on Bersih rally

EYEWITNESS I am a middle class Chinese Malaysian, who works in an investment bank in Johor Bahru. I first heard about Bersih and its idea only around June 20, 2011.

I never knew the previous Bersih rally in 2007, and all the people involved then. But right after I heard about it, I knew that it was very important and every decent Malaysian had to support it.

Therefore, I asked around my friends to car pool over from Johor Bahru to Kuala Lumpur to join the event.

Ku Li’s Amanah a key to national revival?

By Daniel John Jambun
I feel it is very exciting that our highly respected veteran leader Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, popularly known as Ku Li, has already launched his new outfit Angkatan Amanah Merdeka (Amanah)  towards nurturing unity as espoused by the country’s founding fathers.

In the midst of our sharp racial divisions at the moment, Amanah said in a statement recently that the group wants “to reaffirm, inculcate and re-ignite the sense of togetherness and true family spirit that prevailed among all Malaysians during the time of our common struggle for national independence”. It also said it wants to rekindle the legacy, promise and ideals of Bapa Malaysia and the founding fathers so that all Malaysians may live together as members of a truly just, fair, progressive, united and happy nation community. Its other objectives are:

Wataniah is to be set up in all 222 Parliamentary seats

PASIR MAS: All 222 parliamentary constituencies nationwide will have a Territorial Army (Wataniah) company by year-end, said Armed Forces chief Zulkifeli Mohd Zin.

He said so far the Territorial Army had been set up in 189 parliamentary constituencies with a total strength of 60,000 members under the 506th Territorial Army Regiment.

"This is aimed at attracting youths to join the army as those, who are well trained, can be absorbed into the army.

Salleh tegur Persekutuan berhubung perlantikan pegawainya

BEAUFORT : Speaker Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Sabah Datuk Salleh Said Keruak berkata hari ini faktor “perwakilan” di sesebuah negeri perlu diambil kira dalam pelantikan pegawai kanan jabatan dan agensi Persekutuan, selain mengutamakan meritokrasi.

Beliau yakin pegawai kanan yang dilantik itu akan lebih memahami keadaan di negerinya sendiri, sekali gus membantu memantapkan pentadbiran Persekutuan di peringkat negeri.

MoCS: Come as fellow citizens, not politicians

KUCHING – The Movement for Change, Sarawak (MoCS) has reiterated that its ‘Walk for Democracy and Reforms’ on August 13 in Kuching is solely a civil society’s initiative and no political parties are involved.

“We have not and we will not solicit the support of political parties for the event. MoCS is strictly a non-political entity and we do not wish to be accused of being aligned to certain political groups. That must be made clear,” MoCS leader Francis Paul Siah stressed today.


RIDICOLOUS…. Hiew showing the letter from the association.


THE PEOPLE who are operating eateries and restaurants in Sabah especially those in Kota Kinabalu had been threatened by a certain group of ‘health inspectors’ from an association related to health and hygiene.

The food operators are asked to pay expensive advertisement fees ranging from few hundred ringgit to something like RM5,000 for an advertisement page in their bulletin.

Rule of law, rule by law

I urge you to use this arsenal of knowledge and your passion for justice to fight for those who are downtrodden.

You have already heard of the events of July 9th in Malaysia. Whilst it brought out the worst in some, it brought out the best in others and this is where our hope lies.

JULY 23 — Good Morning! Chancellor, vice chancellor and graduating students.

It is so good to be back!

I am deeply moved by the conferment of this honour upon me. That it comes from my alma mater is especially significant for me. That it comes at this time is almost providential, for it allows me and all lawyers to reflect on our roles in the societies we live in.

AirAsia Moves Corporate HQ from KL to Jakarta

With all the troubles he has had over the last two months, the confirmation Friday that AirAsia, arguably Malaysia’s most vibrant private company, is moving its headquarters out of the country to Indonesia is one more blow.

Tony Fernandes, AirAsia’s group chief executive, confirmed the decision in Tokyo Thursday, saying the move is an effort to upgrade his company’s image as a regional Southeast Asian airline rather than just a Malaysian carrier.

Rosmah factor in Sabah Umno

In Sabah Umno, Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak's wife Rosmah Mansor,
strangely enough, seems to be an important factor in the battle between
party vice-president Shafie Apdal and Chief Minister Musa Aman.
TAWAU: Umno president Najib Tun Razak is a worried man and much afraid of his own shadow and, if rumours are to be believed, his wife’s clout within the party.

Within Umno there are three groups of “intelligentsia” – two official and one unofficial. Each group has been turning out their own reports.

But of interest to Sabah is the group which believes that in order for Umno and Barisan Nasional (BN) to become a “better and reformed” party, it should be “dethroned” first.

“A dethroned Umno and BN can make a stronger comeback in the 14th general election… There will be better unity and appreciation of each other,” said a veteran Umno insider.

SAPP sues Kota Kinabalu City Hall

KOTA KINABALU: Opposition Sabah Progressive Party (SAPP) has sought legal redress over a signboard at its headquarters that the local authorities want dismantled.

The opposition party served a writ of summons on the Kota Kinabalu City Hall (DBKK) for attempting to take down its signboard at the party’s headquarters here on the July 9 and again on July 11.

TAWAU: Alongside Tawau’s official port, there thrives an ‘unofficial’ sub-unit through which daily provisions are smuggled out to a nearby island shared by Indonesia.

According to a local businessman, the authorities are aware of the bags of ‘Beras Nasional’ rice, sugar and oil that are ‘exported’ to Pulau Sebatik – an island shared by Malaysia and Indonesia – but generally turn a blind eye.

Scorpene scandal: ‘Truth to surface soon’

GEORGE TOWN: The French investigative judge who will hear the case into the Scorpene submarine scandal will be picked in September and the truth will be exposed, said prominent human rights lawyer William Bourdon.

The Frenchman said he would then have smooth access to scrutinise all documents and interview major witnesses pertaining to the submarine deal between Malaysia and France.

Wikileaks: US envoy says Umno abused security laws, institutions

The leaked cable said that “in good times Umno can
aintain control by distributing power and money to
get what it wants (but) in bad times, it uses the stick.”
By Shazwan Mustafa Kamal, The Malaysian Insider

KUALA LUMPUR, July 22 — The United States ambassador here told Washington in 2008 that Malaysia was facing a “political crisis” caused by Umno’s control and abuse of security institutions and national security laws to remain in power.

US ambassador James R. Keith said in a leaked cable, released by whistleblower site WikiLeaks through the Malaysia Today news portal that “in good times Umno can maintain control by distributing power and money to get what it wants (but) in bad times, it uses the stick, and for now that means intimidation.”

Bourdon's detention 'puts Malaysia back in limelight'

The arrest and imminent deportation of French rights lawyer William Bourdon today drew strong reaction from PAS's Kuala Selangor member of parliament Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad, who said the news put the country back into international limelight following the coverage of Bersih's massive rally on July 9.

Dzulkefly (above) said had Bourdon been allowed to attend the events planned for him, there would not be much media publicity.

Internal Security and Public Order director Salleh Mat Rashid said that some tear gas might have trailed into the compound as well.

Surviving The Coming Hard Times!

By Stanley Koh
(MCA - Head Of Research Unit)

It turns out that the government you voted in will not hold your hand to see you through hard times. Instead, it will make sure to add to your suffering because that is the easiest way it can avoid going bankrupt.

Barisan Nasional has apparently decided that the time has come to remove or cut subsidies — the kind of subsidies that poor people depend on, not the kind enjoyed by big corporations and monopolistic suppliers of utilities and infrastructural support.

So what is the use of a government that will eagerly shake your hand during election time but will not hesitate to pull the rug from under your feet when it needs to save itself?

For many, the socialist experiment had already been assigned to the dustbin of history and only deluded people would still work towards socialism

The Price of Malaysia 's Racism - Revisited

Written by  John Malott  
EXCLUSIVE When my op-ed appeared in the Asian Wall Street Journal last February, all hell broke loose in Malaysia . My thesis was that the highest levels of the government were tolerating or even provoking racial and religious tensions in order to shore up their political base among the Malay community.
I also pointed out that there is an economic price to pay for that political calculation, namely, that members of the minority communities increasingly will feel unwelcome in their own country and continue to emigrate overseas, taking their talents and skills with them.

Dear Editor,

Kindly publish my following letter in your esteemed newspaper this coming Sunday, if you can. Thank you.

“A month has passed since the last election in which the Sabah voters had given the BN a thumping majority to rule Sabah once again for the next five years or so. The last election also saw my participation for the first time as an independent candidate in Kadamaian, albeit, lost. But for me the fight for justice for Sabah and the Sabahans shall never end with the loss but rather will mark the beginning of a long and arduous struggle.

Censored: Magazine’s story on July 9 rally

Marker ink masks mention of Baharuddin’s death,
the banning of the march and police action
against participants
PETALING JAYA: The government has censored an article on Bersih’s July 9 rally in the latest issue of The Economist.

Three paragraphs are blacked out in marker ink.

The offending paragraphs mention the death of marcher Baharuddin Ahmad, the withdrawal of an offer to allow a gathering in a stadium, the banning of the rally, and police action caught on film.

And the prince makes his move…

Tengku Razaleigh's Amanah has sent the speculation
mills into overdrive. Has the prince given up on
Umno? Or will he now lead the third force?
KUALA LUMPUR: The new organisation set up by Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah may signal the Kelantan prince’s disenchantment with Umno, suggested a prominent blogger.

He also believes that the veteran politician will not defend his Gua Musang parliamentary seat under the Barisan Nasional ticket.

In his blog MSOMalaysia, Mohd Sayuti Omar said Razaleigh’s Amanah (Angkatan Amanah Merdeka) reflected his frustration towards Umno and that the latter no longer believes he can reform the party from within.

Muruts win right to stay on ancestral land

By Luke Rintod of FMT
TAWAU: In yet another landmark decision in support of native customary rights (NCR) in Sabah and Sarawak, the Tawau High Court dismissed with cost the application of eight companies to evict Murut natives living in Kampung Serudong Laut here.

The court allowed the natives to remain on their ancestral lands.

In passing his judgment, Judicial Commissioner Douglas Primus allowed the villagers’ application to set aside the order for possession obtained by eight companies against them.

Vatican will not resurrect PM’s image

Najib, say religious leaders, must do more than shake hands
with the Holy See. He must resolve the outstanding issues.
PETALING JAYA: The dispute over the term Allah, the seizure of Malay-language bibles and more recently, the controversy surrounding an alleged Christian plot to undermine the status of Islam here have led to tension brewing between the Church and the government.

Amidst these unresolved issues, Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak landed in the Vatican for an audience with the Pope yesterday.

Sulaiman Taib returns: Good health and no sign of AIDS

Sulaiman, the fllamboyant younger son of Sarawak Chief Minister Taib Mahmud, was spotted in Sabah this week scuba diving with his teenage son at a resort. A Sarawakian who spotted him said he could recognized Taib’s “spoilt-brat” offspring, who appeared to be in high spirits and good health, and certainly not at death’s door as the rumors going around town have implied.

“Adalah lebih berhemat, jika Kerajaan Persekutuan menghantar mereka ke negeri-negeri lain di Malaysia secara purata 125,000 orang PATI bagi setiap negeri terutama bagi masalah kekurangan tenaga buruh atau untuk kepentingan politik..” kata Tan Sri Simon Sipaun, Mantan Naib Presiden SUHAKAM.

Tan Sri Simon Sipaun merupakan rakan lama saya ketika kami sama-sama dalam perkhidmatan kerajaan dan sikap tegasnya tidak berubah sekalipun telah bersara daripada Kerajaan.

Bagi saya, beliau adalah seorang negarawan yang wajar dicontohi oleh lelaki Malaysia kerana sumbangan dan baktinya kepada rakyat Sabah dan kesinambungan perjuangan hak asasi manusia.

Suaranya yang lantang kadangkala tidak disenangi pemerintah seolah tidak sedar kepada siapa beliau bercakap sehingga seringkali dianggap sebagai suara pembangkang sedangkan pada dasarnya beliau menyuarakan suara rakyat yang tertindas.
