Yes my fellow Malaysians! NOC stands for "non official cover", or to put very bluntly a non-official informers working for the interest of foreign power, especially the American.
A short story before I ramble on. Years ago during "Operasi Lallang" a futile attempt was made by a bunch of un-patriotic non-Malay Malaysians who banded together to destabilise and to "overthrew" the existing government of Mahathir Mohamad at that time. Many people, under this operation, were detained,
One particular Malaysian Indian, a very senior editor of an English tabloid at that time, that shall remain anonymous, was clearly known to be working very closely with the American Embassy. He was seen and being photograph having a meeting with a Kuala Lumpur CIA station chief at that time. Lo and behold this particular Malaysian editor of Indian origin managed to flee to America to escape Operation Lallang where he was given a green card to stay and work in the USA. The question then was how in the world did he managed to get a green card in a jiffy!
He is now back in the country working as though nothing had hapened and I was told he is still working for the opposition, possibly for Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim (BABI) still, last time I check, and more than likely to be still working for the CIA! Sigh! Read more here...
Okay let's cut to the chase, many more non-Malay journalists that I know then and today are still believed to be happily working for foreign government's interest, such as Singapore. They have no qualm about doing it, why not the perk is good. But then you cannot really blame them for doing what they do. Many feel so "alienated" and "disenfranchise", but then that is really not a valid reason to be traitorous, or to sell your country tot he highest bidder, or to create chaos via your writing!
Back to Operation Lallang , it was something like what is happening today, such as a vocal NGO's questioning many unrealistic issues, a non-Malay owned newspaper writing disparaging remarks questioning the wisdom of our deeply entrenched institutions, such as the NEP, the judicial system, the police, the army. Or an English tabloid that shall remain unmentioned here appears to be subliminally a voice of the opposition i.e. of BABI. A good column written by my good old friend, in the same tabloid, which was not complimentary of BABI was buried in page 34. So go figure!
NOCs can also come on many forms here. An English-tabloid is owned by a Chinese party appears to be fanning the issues pertaining BABI. Why this tabloid is doing this? Well so many Chinese-Malaysians really want to see the solidly entrenched Malays institution to falter, the best way to do this is to support BABI in his Quiotic quest to be a PM? Hey if I am a Chinese or Indian chauvinist I would want the same also right! To destroy anything Malay via an unhappy but dangerously popular rabble-rouser that can tricked people into believing anything through lies!
There is this picture of BABI with two ardent Zionist supporters and why is BABI being so well protected by this powerful Zionist members, well you say it and use you grey matter and I am not going to say it for you.
P.S. I received a SMS which says, already there is an incident where a peaceful ground breaking ceremony for a surau was marred ugly by protest from a Hindu group, where a politician was slapped when he intervened. All I can see is a Hindu group is now too bold enough to challenge a Muslim community, so where do you think this might lead us to, well I am not going to say it for you but you use you grey matter to figure this one out. A very dangerous time indeed for all of us.
