My comments : Will the kabilah DNA bahalol understand any of this? I am afraid not.

So lets keep it simple for them. 

Ini adalah satu perubahan yang walaupun baru, tetapi sudah mula menjadi kenyataan. Kalau perkara ini berpanjangan, maksudnya pada satu hari yang tak jauh nanti anak-anak kita akan berhijrah ke Indonesia untuk menjadi house maid atau pembantu rumah atau amah.

Sekarang sudah ada pun anak-anak kita berhijrah ke Singapura untuk menjadi buruh dan pekerja restoran (yang tidak ada sticker halal).   

Tapi Singapura adalah First World nation, sudah menjadi negara maju. Jadi kalau kerja di Singapura pun kira OK lah, sebab negara maju, gaji dia lagi tinggi dari Malaysia.

Indonesia pula bukan negara maju, masih menjadi Third World nation.  Sedih lah kalau pekerja Malaysia terpaksa berhijrah mencari hidup di Third World nation macam Indonesia. 

Kalaulah kabilah DNA bahalol di negara kita masih kekal bahalol, mungkin satu masa nanti rakyat negara kita akan terpaksa mencari kerja di Myanmar, Vietnam dan Thailand.  Just wait and see.

WASATIYAH ? ? AWSATUHA ? ? AWAK SATU HAL ? ?

1.  The first video here is the real Islam. Or what Islam teaches us to do. But this type of Islam is found only inside the Quran. You cannot find this type of Islam outside the Quran. This is about a committed man and a new type of education system he has invented in the Indian Himalayan state of Ladakh. Quite mind blowing.


video


2.  The following video shows how the Malays have been trivialised and demeaned into becoming nothing more than beggars.  This is today's UMNO.   They mention 'Allah'.  Listen carefully.


video


3. In the following video it shows beggars misbehaving in other peoples' countries. These people messed up their own countries. They had to swim and wade through the sea to reach kafir countries to get a second chance at life.  But after they settle down they behave like this instead :

4.  Here are some other pictures.

i.  Someone sent me this.  Thats a lion in the picture. Maybe they do not have Nat Geo channel in their town.




ii.  I am meeting my good friend Dr Yunus for makan today. I suggested 'ayam ustaz'. He has not replied yet.


 'Burung' ustaz ada tak?


iii.  Can you spot the cleverest girl in this class?






iv.   Milo itu dibuat oleh syarikat Nestle. Nestle itu bukan kristian buat ke?  Camno?







v.   Nestle  juga buat sos tomato,  Sos Tomato Maggie.  Rupanya tomato pun kristian ! ! Fulamak.  Kalau hari-hari ibu masak tomato, ibu akan masuk golongan risiko tinggi !! High risk of christian tomato 'radiation'.



 



vi.  Oops too late. Class is over.  Panah lawan rifle, siapa akan menang? Tapi rifle ada pahala tak? Setakat bertanya saja.








From that first video (about Ladakh) until the last picture at the bottom, this is all happening in the 21st century.   But only that video about that school in Ladakh is real 21st century.
 
The rest are not 21st century.  
 
The one is going forward. The rest are going backward. 

WARKAH TERBUKA YB TAN SRI DATO' HJ MUHYIDDIN HJ MOHD YASSIN BUAT DYMM TUANKU SULTAN JOHOR



Assalamu'alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

Terlebih dahulu patik merafak sembah memohon jutaan keampunan daripada Duli Yang Maha Mulia Tuanku di atas warkah patik yang tidak sepertinya ini. Patik terpaksa menjawab secara terbuka titah Tuanku mengenai patik yang telah dibuat secara terbuka dan pada hemat patik telah sedikit sebanyak mencemar nama baik patik. Walaupun Tuanku tidak menamakan patik secara khusus dalam titah tersebut, tetapi ramai pihak mentafsir bahawa patiklah yang Tuanku maksudkan.

Bukanlah niat patik untuk menderhaka kepada Tuanku dengan menulis warkah ini secara terbuka. Niat patik hanyalah untuk membersihkan nama baik patik yang kini telah dilihat sebagai seorang yang angkuh dan sombong sepertimana yang telah dititah oleh Tuanku.

Tuanku sendiri tahu bahawa patik tidak pernah bersikap angkuh dan sombong terhadap Tuanku. Ketika patik menjadi Menteri Besar Johor dan Tuanku adalah Pemangku Raja, hubungan kita amat akrab. Banyak hal-hal berkaitan pemerintahan negeri yang Tuanku kongsikan dengan patik dan patik telah mengurus Negeri Johor menjadi antara negeri termaju di Malaysia waktu itu. Hal ini telah diketahui umum dan tercatat dalam rekod negara.

Seingat patik, tidak pernah berlaku di zaman patik menjadi Menteri Besar, kerajaan negeri Johor tidak mempunyai wang yang cukup untuk membayar gaji kakitangan awam. Perbelanjaan diurus secara berhemah dan kerajaan negeri tidak berhutang atau meminjam utk membayar gaji.

Sebaliknya patik telah menubuhkan Tabung Amanah Warisan Johor di mana wang pampasan pembinaan Empangan Linggui berjumlah lebih RM300 juta yang diterima oleh Kerajaan Negeri Johor telah dimasukkan ke dalam tabung ini untuk kegunaan generasi akan datang. Kerajaan negeri Johor sebenarnya mempunyai lebihan wang untuk dibelanjakan. Perbadanan Kemajuan Ekonomi Negeri Johor juga adalah antara perbadanan kemajuan ekonomi negeri yang paling berjaya.

Ekonomi negeri Johor tumbuh pesat pada kadar purata 6.7% dari tahun 1991-1995. Dalam tempoh yang sama, pendapatan isi rumah kasar bulanan meningkat dari
RM1,152 kepada RM2,138 dan kadar kemiskinan juga berjaya dikurangkan daripada 9.8% kepada 3.1%. Ini menunjukkan bahawa rakyat negeri Johor telah menikmati kemajuan ekonomi yang pesat sewaktu patik menjadi Menteri Besar.

Patik juga telah menangani masalah perpecahan Melayu Johor dengan menganjurkan perhimpunan Melayu Johor. Krisis pindaan perlembagaan tahun 1993 yang melibatkan soal imuniti Raja-Raja Melayu juga ditangani dengan baik.

Ketika patik menjadi Menteri Besar, patik telah menjalin kerjasama yang baik dengan pegawai kerajaan dan rakyat. Urusan negeri dijalankan tanpa campurtangan dari pihak luar termasuk Istana. Waktu itu Almarhum Tuanku Sultan Iskandar tidak mencampuri perjalanan Kerajaan Negeri atau terlibat secara langsung dalam politik atau perniagaan. Patik jalankan semua urusan pentadbiran negeri berdasarkan dasar-dasar yang memberi faedah kepada rakyat.

Tidak ada tanah negeri Johor yang terlepas milikan secara kekal ke tangan warganegara asing. Tanah-tanah yang dipindah milik kepada para pelabur asing untuk tujuan pelaburan dalam bidang perindustrian  waktu itu hanyalah berstatus pegangan pajak (leasehold). Apabila tempoh pajakan berakhir, tanah-tanah tersebut perlu diserah semula kepada kerajaan. Tidak ada tanah yang tergadai kepada warga asing.

Sebaliknya, pembangunan yang pesat dalam bidang perindustrian telah berjaya menyumbangkan kemakmuran serta impak positif yang signifikan kepada ekonomi negeri Johor keseluruhannya. Malah ianya telah berjaya membuka peluang pekerjaan kepada bukan saja rakyat Johor tetapi juga kepada rakyat Malaysia di negeri lain yang berhampiran.

Pada waktu itu, kerjasama dengan Kerajaan Pusat di bawah pimpinan Perdana Menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad begitu akrab dan peruntukan yang banyak dicurahkan untuk memajukan negeri Johor. Patik juga diberi kebenaran untuk mengadakan hubungan kerjasama dengan Singapura secara langsung kerana sedar tentang begitu pentingnya Kerajaan Johor bekerjasama dengan Singapura bagi faedah rakyat negeri Johor.

Malahan selepas patik berhijrah ke Kuala Lumpur dan menjawat jawatan Menteri Pusat, negeri Johor senantiasa diberikan perhatian dan layanan yang adil. Patik masih ingat, ketika patik menjawat jawatan Timbalan Perdana Menteri dan Tuanku baru sahaja ditabalkan menjadil Sultan, Tuanku menitahkan patik supaya menasihati Tuanku tentang bagaimana untuk memajukan lagi negeri Johor. Patik dengan amat berbesar hati menjunjung titah Tuanku.

Bilakah patik dikatakan angkuh dan sombong?

Patik dikatakan angkuh dan sombong selepas patik tidak lagi berada di dalam kerajaan setelah dipecat dari jawatan Timbalan Perdana Menteri dan Timbalan Presiden UMNO kerana menentang kemungkaran yang dilakukan oleh Najib.

Patik masih ingat sewaktu patik mengadap Tuanku selepas dipecat di waktu itu pun Tuanku menyatakan simpati dengan apa yang berlaku terhadap patik. Nyata, Tuanku murka dengan perlakuan Najib yang menyingkir patik.

Patik dikatakan angkuh dan sombong selepas patik menegur penjualan hartanah berstatus hak milik kekal di Forest City kepada warganegara asing atas sebab mempertahan kedaulatan negeri dan negara.

Apa yang patik lakukan selama ini adalah semata-mata untuk mempertahankan rakyat dan negara daripada kerosakan yang sedang dilakukan oleh Najib. Jika patik dikatakan angkuh dan sombong hanya semata-mata kerana patik berjuang menegakkan kebenaran dan menentang kemungkaran demi membela kepentingan rakyat dan negara, maka biarlah rakyat yang membuat penilaian.

Akhirnya, patik sekali lagi merafak sembah memohon keampunan daripada Tuanku di atas warkah patik yang tidak sepertinya ini. Patik sentiasa mendoakan kesejahteraan Tuanku dan mudah-mudahan negeri Johor sentiasa dilimpahi rahmat kemajuan, keamanan dan kemakmuran di bawah naungan Tuanku.

Amin ya rabbal alamin.

Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man, Sekarang PAS Pun Sudah Gostan. Ingat lagi ke?

Ingat lagi ke? 
Dulu Pak Lang gostan. 
Lepas itu Tuan Ibrahim pula gostan. 
Sekarang PAS sekali gostan.

Just a teaser from the 1990s for Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man.   

Here is some 'inside' info folks. The RUU355 is just bullshit. No one in PAS cares about it. Semua wayang saja. There is only one item on the menu at Restoran PAS. That item is Kelantan.  PAS wants to keep Kelantan.  RUU355 sells very well among the Kelantanese folks.  That is all.

So they are going to table RUU355 in Parliament in March. It will NOT go beyond a first reading. This is what the 'inside info' says. After the first reading they will postpone it for a second reading. And that will be the end of it.  As Rafizi Ramli said in that video, they themselves withdrew their own motion. The motion did not pass. Or they did not pass motion. Bawang will declare UMNO as "halal".

By April, it will be a dead issue. Sarawak and Sabah will be asked to forget about it. MCA already knows it is just a ploy to help PAS please their supporters, especially in Kelantan.

Folks say that MOI has delegated Jawa Man to handle RUU355 with Bawang. So Bawang now meets Jawa Man. When they meet of course they exchange gifts. Of course one fellow gives a bigger gift than the other fellow.  

By the way, talk is Rafizi and Brader Anwar are going all out to take down Azmin. Maybe that is why Tun Dr Mahathir was booed at the recent gathering. The idea is also to embarass Azmin. Brader Anwar does not support Muhyiddin, the president of Bersatu. 

Brader Anwar will agree to endorse "someone else" as PM if he is promised a full pardon.  Here is the catch. That can only happen if Pakatan wins the GE14. So he has to be inside prison until the election results are known.  That is a huge risk that Brader Anwar will be taking. But he aint got much choice.

Some people now say the elections will only be held in 2018. Not 2017.  The economy is getting worse by the day. If some of that RM400 billion of Chinese  "investments" are fast tracked, it may ease the situation. But I dont think so.

(Here is a digression. Friends say that the Jabatan Hutan guys are not patrolling the jungles because there is no more budget for petrol and diesel. So they just sit in the office. Poachers and kayu gaharu thieves please take note. Jesus is not watching the jungles (got that right this time.)

The longer they wait, the worse things will get. The economy is grinding down, especially the Malay economy. 

Coming to PAS, the party is seriously split.  

Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man the PAS no. 2 wants to get rid of MOI. He can see that MOI is destroying the country. Tabik Tuan Ibrahim. Kita semua sokong.

Bawang and Tin Sadin's son dont agree. They are dedak eaters. Rumour is that the fantastic piece of KTM land at the junction of Jalan Bangsar and Jalan Maarof (the old Lever brothers factory) has been "given" to the same son of Tin Sadin.  Maybe worth over RM200 million. Boleh lah beli Audi Q 7,000,000 !

Talk is MOI is ready to "negotiate" with Bawang for the traditionally PAS states (Kelantan, T'gganu and Kedah) for PAS.  UMNO better take note.  The reality is that on the ground, the PAS states (Kelantan, T'gganu, Kedah)  simply cannot accept UMNO/BN. So maybe MOI may be negotiating away something that he knows he is going to lose anyway. 

Talk is Bawang does not care. His personal glory now is to win T'gganu again and become MB. That is all he wants. He is also living on borrowed time. That ticker is not ticking too well.  

PAS cooperates with DAP in Selangor. Also in Perak and Pahang. Tuan Ibrahim has no problems with DAP. Only Bawang is the problem. 

Bawang wants more dedak from MOI. 
DAP will not mind if MOI  is tarred, feathered and worse. 

Conclusion :  Does the BN and especially UMNO really think they can predict the outcome of the GE14? 

Some say that the BN can even  secure 2/3 with just 42% of the votes.   

I think that even if the election were held today, the BN will lose, especially the States. Its always the economy stupid. The economy is going down. The longer they wait, the more they will get burnt.

Ministers Are Split, Even The "Advisors" Are Split.

Anifah Aman is not the only Minister who is unhappy.  (By the way, there are FOUR State EXCO members in a particular State who are ready to 'jump ship'. I will not entertain any private email or smses asking who or which state, sorry folks.) There is serious dissension within the ranks.

As I predicted (it is no rocket science) Anifah finds it increasingly difficult to converse with foreign missions and foreign diplomats whenever they bring up the 1MDB and other MO1 related issues. And Anifah has been obliged to 'tolerate' China.

The Ministers are split in their support for MO1.  Talk is MOI has complained more than once that not all Ministers are with him to fend off Dr Mahathir's attacks.   Which is true because not all Ministers attack Tun Dr Mahathir. Many remain quiet. Their feeling is, "Duit dia bantai, lepas tu suruh kita defend pula."

Even among the Advisors around MOI  they are split. Not all of them support MOI. Talk is that one Se·ño·ra who publicly supports MOI says many (but true) things about him in private.  "  .  .. di belakang kata macam-macam".  So there is plenty of hypocrisy going on.  Are we surprised?

And Sarawak under the new Chief Minister Abang Jo is pulling even farther away from MOI.  Sarawak is reiterating that they will work "with the sitting Prime Minister".  Their loyalty is NOT to MOI.  The 31 parliamentary seats in Sarawak will support whoever is PM. 

And if Shafie Apdal wins in Sabah, then Sarawak is prepared to follow 'Sabah's lead' in dealing with Putrajaya.  Sarawak has made it plain that they do not want UMNO in Sarawak. Sabah also does not want UMNO. Together Sarawak and Sabah will work to 'send UMNO back' to Semenanjung.

On the ground level, the sentiment among the people in Sarawak is increasingly against UMNO / BN (from the Semenanjung).    This is no great secret.

Lets see what the cat drags onto the lawn tomorrow.

The UMNO Elections are long overdue. They should have been held yesterday. All eyes now are on one position only - the deputy president. Since Muhyiddin was fired and thrown out of the party there has been great speculation who shall be the deputy party president.

Not only has the deputy president been kicked out but another Vice President Shafie Apdal has also left UMNO. Leaving behind Hishamuddin and Zahid Hamidi as the two incumbent VPs.  

Both Zahid Hamidi and Hishamuddin Hussein will (or rather they must) vie for the vacant deputy president's post.

The money says if Hishamuddin Hussein becomes Deputy President, then of a certainty KJ's career in UMNO will be substantially impeded.  KJ knows this as well.  So KJ has no choice but to also aim for the Deputy President's post. 

Observers note that KJ has lately been appearing wearing his Reserves military uniform - perhaps sending a strong signal to Hishamuddin Hussein the Minister of Defense that KJ too can tie his boot laces.

So Zahid, Hisham and KJ will be vying for the Deputy President's position in UMNO.

No one seems to favour Zahid Hamidi as the Deputy President, deputy PM or as PM. Zahid can be helped here but other than telling him to stop showing his fist, his advisors are not helping him at all.  I think that UN speech in English was sabotage.

If Zahid had spoken in Malay at the UN,  even I would have voted for Zahid. Zahid would have come out as a Malay and Malaysian champion. It was a fantastic opportunity lost.  Bila lagi nak berbahasa Melayu brader? (Dulu masa mamak tak reti cakap Melayu, depa kutuk mamak tak suka Melayu. Sekarang mamak fasih cakap Melayu, depa kutuk mamak nak jadi Melayu pula. Kay se-paata) 

Coming back to UMNO, there is therefore a serious vacancy for the three Vice Presidents positions as well. 

Talk is the front runner for VP is none other than Ismail Sabri. Tokpa or Mustapa Mohamed is also in the running they say. The other person hoping to be VP is Mahadzir Khalid.  And Sabah UMNO wants a VP slot as replacement for Shafie Apdal. If Sabah UMNO does not get a VP slot, they say you can shut down UMNO in Sabah.

As the stomach churns.  



Coup de etats are usually executed by colonels, not generals.

Robert Fisk, the eminent Middle East war correspondent for Britain's 'The Independent' newspaper feels that the failed coup against Erdogan in Turkey just did not succeed. Meaning another one is  'in the offing'.  Because the circumstances that precipitated the coup have not changed. In fact the situation in Turkey has perhaps become worse.

Anyway, there are two types of coups. 

A coup de etat (ku-di-ta) is usually executed by one or more men leading another group of men to physically overthrow the incumbent ruler or government. It is always an unconstitutional and illegal process. Dont ever get involved in one ok.

Another coup de etat is sometimes executed by an incumbent leader or government to prevent another new, legally appointed leader or government from taking over the reins of power.  Dont ever get involved in one ok.

Coup de etats almost always involve  the military.  Though in reality some wives have been known to hijack the "reins" of power and "reign" like kings (or queens). Examples would be Jiang Qing (Chairman Mao's wife), Eva Peron, wife of Argentine president Juan Peron  and 'Bad Hair Do'. 

Very often 'military' coup de etats involve military 'colonels'. There is a simple reason for this. The colonels are the guys who actually command the regiments and battalions which have the men, machine guns, tanks and equipment to execute a coup de etat.  Meaning it is the colonels ie the battalion and regimental commanders who can give the orders for the troops to move.

I have another explanation why it is usually colonels who undertake coup de etats. Colonels are usually younger men, more fit with slimmer waistlines - compared to say army generals who are usually older men. So if the coup de etat  starts to go wrong they must be fit enough to run for their lives ! !  This is a logical deduction - I am just trying to be a Holmes here - who was a fictional character.   

In Malaysia throughout 60 years of our independence our Army and Armed Forces have developed a robust and unshakeable tradition of being fully professional and apolitical.    Also there has never been any situation where the Armed Forces have even contemplated stepping out of their barracks during peacetime.

In the modern era with Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp and what not the "window of opportunity" to  execute a coup has shrunken significantly.

The coup de etat against Erdogan failed because Erdogan and his supporters took to Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp and the Alternative Media to ask their supporters to pour out into the streets - which they did. Within hours of the coup, hundreds of thousands of Erdogan's supporters jammed the roads in Turkey's main cities, especially Ankara.

This rousing of the Erdogan supporters caught the coup plotters by surprise. If the coup does not succeed within a few hours, then it will not succeed.   My prediction is if there is another coup de etat in Turkey (as hinted by Robert Fisk) this time they may also prioritise shutting down the full spectrum of radio and electronic communications in Turkey.  I believe Erdogan may also suffer a worse fate. The guy is corrupted as hell.

If a coup is planned over an unexpected election result, again the window of opportunity to execute the coup will last maybe seven or eight hours at the most - ie when the poll results are still being announced. If they wait for the next day, it will be too late.

So in any coup situation (in Turkey for example) the people to watch (ie the colonels) must be watched closely during the "window of opportunity" of   7  to 12 hours. 

Coup de etats have absolutely no place in a democratic society. Whether to overthrow an incumbent government or to preserve the incumbent government it  is simply too Jurassic. 

It is Stone Age behaviour. Tidak bertamaddun, tidak beradab. But so is RUU355.

The best advice is never take part in a coup.    There are always consequences.
