What is it about the Singapore/Malaya merger and Operation Coldstore?

The Online Citizen speaks with Dr. Thum Ping Tjin, a historian on the merger of Singapore and Malaya along with Operation Coldstore which can be said to be a period of white terror of our country. He has researched extensively and have been documenting the unclassified documents that have been recently released by the British Government on the two topics.

A Very Bad Deal

This morning in Geneva, the United States and other world powers agreed to a deal with the radical mullahs in Iran over their nuclear program. What details have been released indicate it is a very bad deal for the United States and can be interpreted as rewarding Iran for its decades of radicalism and terror.

Even more important, Obama and Kerry seem to naively believe Iran can be trusted. What gives them that idea? Iran has been lying and terrorizing the west for over 30 years. Nothing has changed. In fact, the United States went down this path with North Korea and it lead directly to its getting nuclear weapons. Read this article which sheds more light on the Iran deal.

Listen to the People's Views - Dr. Jeffrey

Kota Kinabalu:    “The Sabah government should listen to the views of the people affected by the proposed building of dams in Kaiduan in Penampang and Tambatuon in Kota Belud.  This is equally applicable to other projects that affect the lives and livelihood of the people” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief in commenting on the on-going spat over the Kaiduan dam.

People just do not complain for no reason.  There are obvious reasons for the grievances of the people affected by the proposed Kaiduan dam in Penampang which may affect about 10 villages in the district and thousands of people living there.

Press statement by Daniel John Jambun, President of the UK based Boreneo’s Plight in Malaysia Foundation (BOPIM)

The claim by Ibrahim Ali of perkasa that appears in the Daily Express on Friday, 22nd November, of having seizeable number of christian members in sabah is nothing more than an after thought and a figment of his own imagination. If they ever exist, these so- called christian members need to have their head examined for simple reason Perkasa has been known to be very vocal and extreme in it roles in suppressing the non-muslim especially the christian on religious matters. One outrageous example is the arrogant threat to burn the Bible.

Further to their claim that perkasa fight for the rights of bumiputra is another sheer nonsense.

Jika Jabatan Perangkaan dapat membekalkan kita matlumat ini baru kita akan dapat menangani masalah perumahan rakyat kita.

Bajet Negeri Sabah 2014: Satu Pandangan

By Zainnal Ajamain
Respond Bajet Negeri Sabah yang telah di bentangkan oleh YAB Ketua Menteri Sabah bertemakan “MENJAMIN KESINAMBUNGAN KESEJAHTERAAN RAKYAT”.  Namun sejak dari tahun 1976 lagi ekonomi Sabah menurun di sebabkan oleh pengambilan Petroleum dan Gas, perlaksanan dasar Kabotaj oleh Kuala Lumpur, kesejahteraaan rakyat Sabah sudah terjejas ini bererti Bajet Negeri Sabah yang dibentangkan oleh YAB Ketua Menteri ialah khusus untuk “MENJAMIN KESINAMBUNGANMENJEJAS KESEJAHTERAAN RAKYAT”.  YAB Ketua Menteri cuba untuk mengaburi mata rakyat dengan menggunakan asas sejarah ekonomi negeri Sabah sejak 50 tahun yang lalu.  Namun perbandingan ini tidak menunjukkan kebangaan pencapaian dan prestasi ekonomi negeri Sabah malah perbandingan dibuat melalui pandangan yang cetek dan pemikiran yang tumpul.

Implement Verbal Support of Sabah as Far East Hub – Dr. Jeffrey

Kota Kinabalu:    “The Sabah government should put its foot in its mouth and implement the proposed Plan of the Federation of Sabah Industries (FSI) (formerly Federation of Sabah Manufacturers – FSM) and turn Sabah into the “Hub of the Far East” as giving verbal support is of no use to the Plan" said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief, commenting on the report that the Sabah government supports the said Plan.

“The Plan by FSI to turn Sabah into the “Hub of the Far East” or so-called “Dubai” of the Far East is realistic, achievable and very good for the long term economic development of Sabah and welfare of Sabahans based on my briefing from FSM then” added Dr. Jeffrey.

Imagine Musa Tabling a RM40 Billion 2014 Sabah Budget – Dr. Jeffrey

Kota Kinabalu:     “The Chief Minister should be able to table a record-breaking RM40 billion Sabah Budget for 2014, if the calls by Malay ultras to chase out Christian Malaysians and Sabah out of the Federation are realized before year-end” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief, rueing what could happen to the Sabah economy for 2014 with the CM due to present the 2014 State Budget  .

A Dangerous Man called Haris

I've just spent the last five days staying with Haris Ibrahim in Melbourne and from the moment I met him, I became aware of how dangerous he could become for the Malaysian government.        

Yes, in the world of activism, I am the greatest cynic. I don't trust anyone on face value. I don't believe most of what I hear and even less of what I see.

Dr Mahathir Mohamad is ANTI-CHINESE, Pure and Simple


Dato Din Merican
Dr. Mahathir has yet to deal with the ghosts of his past deeds. Here no one can help him but he himself. 

This is indeed tragic for a once formidable leader of our country who is advancing in years (born in 1925). He just cannot let go and now he has taken upon himself the task of interpreting history. 

It is not Malay or Chinese Dilemma. It is Dr Mahathir’s. 

UMNO does better than Hitler, Ghadaffi and Saddam Hussein.

Through political power they have held for over half a century UMNO has used every means at their disposal to legislate political boundaries that are advantageous to them – gerry meandering is what the opposition accuse UMNO of doing -  but for UMNO is merely a fail safe method of ensuring electoral success. UMNO also ensure that appointees to the election commission and other authorities relevant to the election process are sympathetic to the UMNO cause.

Don’t Settle for Anything Less – Dr.Jeffrey

Kota Kinabalu: “The MPs from Sabah and Sarawak are kingmakers and can make or break the Umno/BN federal government.  PRS and SPDP must stand firm and seek their just entitlements in the federal Cabinet and not accept crumbs posts any longer” said Datuk Dr. Jeffrey Kitingan, STAR Sabah Chief in response to the impending Cabinet reshuffle promised by PM Najib to announced anytime soon.

The Borneo States saved the BarisanNasional from losing power in the recent general electionand helped keep Najib as the Prime Minister by winning 47 parliamentary seats.  But it only takes 23 out of the 47 seats to change the federal government and for the PM to become the federal Opposition Leader.

It's long but very informative
We all think eating fruits means just buying fruits, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths. It's not as easy as you think. It's important to know how and when to eat. 

What is the correct way of eating fruits? 

Najib vows to defend use of Allah as exclusive to Muslims
