Azan Ismail, a badly brought up opposition MP from Indera Mahkota, Pahang!

Azan Ismail, the little man from PKR! Notice his smug and his imagined feeling of a superiority complex!?



*BREAKING NEWS AND AN UPDATE*

Little badly brought up man, and also an Opposition MP from Indera Mahkota, Pahang, Azan Ismail, was quoted in a Malay tabloid "Sinar" saying he did shake hand with PM and DPM and their spouses. But, an eye witness account says otherwise, this little Kurang Ajar and badly brought up PKR member should make his apology in Parliament or PKR should reprimand him, or otherwise PKR will lose all credibility with such claims as having members of high caliber, morality and principle.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------




It was observed how a little man, an opposition MP from the constituency of Indera Mahkota, Pahang, snubbing both the Prime Minister and the Deputy Prime Minister and their spouses by not shaking their hands. He was seen doing that after lunch after the opening of the new Parliament session today.
Decorum and convention dictate that all MPs and their spouses were to take turn shaking hand of all dignitaries including the King and his consort, the prime minister and the deputy prime minister and their spouses, the speakers and so on and so on!
But this little moron from Indera Mahkota snubbed both PM and the DPM and their spouses and went straight to shake the speaker's hand after he shook hand with the King and his consort.
Just to show how a little man from the opposition that does not know the meaning of the words decorum and civility.
Even Anwar Ibrahim his wife Wan Azizah, their daughter Nurul Izzah, Lim Kit Siang, his son Lim Guan Eng shook hands! But this little smug, and arrogant little man from Indera Mahkota decided to insult both PM and the DPM and their spouses by not even making eye contact.
I guess it takes more for the opposition to understand the meaning of the word power and dignity, when you have it you just have to know how to use it, and for little man he is just badly brought up, or in Malay it means Kurang Ajar!

The Police Killing Field: The Royal Malaysian Police must answer to Raja Petra's serious allegation on police killing people!

Is the police force involves in killing people as said by Raja Petra?



He insinuates the Police Force is involves in killing people!



Raja Petra of Malaysia Today has made some very serious allegations and insinuation when he wrote in his column, No Holds Barred read here saying that the police might have killed people and buried them in a secret graveyard. Thus a Police Killing Field!!(Raja Petra also published rebuttals both in English here and Bahasa Melayu here).
What I failed to understand is how come the authority is not reprimanding him over such serious allegation, if I read the column correctly. If read it correctly he sort of saying the police might have "bumped" people in the middle of the night and then bury them in an unmarked grave.
This is an excerpt on what Raja Petra wrote in that column:

"It makes one wonder whether the police knew where to go because it is a ‘gazetted dumpsite’ where all ‘bumped off’ people are disposed. Does this then mean that the two police officers on trial alongside Razak are police hit men whose job it is to bump people off and then get rid of their bodies at that site where they retrieved Altantuya’s remains? This, of course, remains mere speculation but there is certainly cause for speculation and the evidence all seem to point to this assumption."


Hey this is a very serious statement and if the police do not take any action against the writer over the allegation then something is definitely is wrong with the country's system. I am now afraid of the police after reading Raja Petra's column for I can also be bumped off, you can be bumped off. If it is true some serious investigation must be conducted, this is very crucial for they public to feel safe from the very forces that are supposed to be looking after our safety.

No cheers today!

Bleeding heart liberal Malays might as well start eating Bah Kut Teh now as a matter of routine!

Trust me, the bleeding heart liberal Malays at the rate they are going they will be eating Bah Kut Teh as a matter of routine, like nasi lemak or roti chanai! Because a leader among the Pakatan Rakyat will tell them it is okay to do so!



"Every now and then I will post again any comment that I find interesting from commentators into my blogsite. One such comments came from Straycat's Strut, which says:

"Hishamuddin might as well apologize for being a Melayu, for not eating pigs, for praying in a mosque. Its not good to hurt the feelings of races other than the Malays these days.
Hishamuddin, you should not touch a keris in the first place. It was meant for warriors. Or for the least, a man. April 27, 2008 12:13 AM"

I might as well agree with Straycat's Strut, that what I understand about Malay as a race is just sad and pathetic. Even former prime minister, Tun Dr Mahathir wrote in his book The Malay Dilemma when he said: "The tolerance and non-confrontational nature of the Malays has allowed them to be subjugated in their own land by the other races with the collusion of the British (now I will add in Singapore)."

Just as well when it is now proven beyond any reasonable doubt what Mahathir said is true when Hishammuddin Hussein was shamed by his act of kissing a kris and forced to apologise and again the Malays non-confrontational nature comes out of him naturally. Oh God, when Najib said something and somewhere "an accident of birth" cannot be blamed for anything, but how I wished I was born a Jew, who are willing to die for an inch of their land and an ounce of their rights! When the Malays gave away Penang, Perak, Selangor, Kedah and the Federal Territory to the Chinese!

Now you Bah Kut Teh eating Malays are you happy?!!!!

It spells the end of Umno Youth chief Hishammuddin Hussein's career for apologising!


Umno Youth chief Hishammuddin Hussein need not apologise to the non-Malays for kissing the Panca Warisan, a Malay kris or dagger, as a symbol of the Malay "supremacy", the onus is on the word symbol. The ancient Malays and the kris have always been synonymous, since time immemorial, and there is nothing wrong in keeping up with a tradition!






For his act of upsetting non-Malays in the country for waving that symbolic Umno dagger(kris) Panca Warisan during Umno assemblies, Umno Youth Chief Hishammuddin Hussein apologised to the non-Malays for this act.
He said: "I apologized if this has affected anybody. I apologize to the non-Malays if they felt afraid of the symbol..to the Malays I also apologize because I cannot defend the symbol of our heritage."
So, Hishammuddin what good are you if you cannot even defend a Malay symbol and what make you think that you can be voted in to the next echelon of Umno hierarchy. For your statement I think you can kiss your chances to be the next vice-president of the party.
I know if I am empowered to vote I will not vote for you as the next leader of the Malay community, how can you be empowered to safeguard the Malay interest when you faltered when pressure by the non-Malays not to pull the symbolic kris from the sheath?
I will tell you what else the non-Malays are uncomfortable with in this country if you are still clueless! They are also uncomfortable with everything Malays, including the Malay paramount ruler, the Malay sultans, the Malay reserve land, the NEP, Malay language and the official language, and many, many more! When they were uncomfortable with the name Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, we changed that too! After this it will be changing the name of Askar Melayu DiRaja, if I am a non-Malay I will be very uncomfortable with the name too for in my insecure non-Malay mind I will believe the Askar Melayu DiRaja will shoot me one day!!
Even marching during Maulaud Nabi was also banned and Malays just abide by it, and now what else the non-Malays want banned!
So Hishammuddin, my advise to you is if you think you aspire to go up in Umno, think again because it is a final nail to the coffin of your political career that you have just hammered!
If you cannot defend a Malay symbol how are you expected to defend anything else, so what good are you?

PKR Wan Azizah said Ketuanan Melayu and Pas dream of an Islamic state can go to hell! Well done!

Wan Azizah, just imagine her without her tudung and she can be some Chinese person selling pirated CD at Petaling Street!.




Here an interview by Sin Chew Daily with PKR president Wan Azizah Ismail, reproduced by the Sun Daily, who said she and her party will not champion the Ketuanan Melayu, well is is easy for her to say, but I bet if Chinese takes over power from the Malay, Wan Azizah will take off her tudung and wears a cheongsam and no body can tell whether she is a bumiputra!:-
PKR to champion for 'Ketuanan Rakyat'
Kong See Hoh

PETALING JAYA (April 24, 2008): If Pakatan Rakyat (PR) comes to power at federal level, a coalition government headed by PKR adviser Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will be championing "Ketuanan Rakyat" (people's supremacy) instead of shouting for "Ketuanan Melayu" (Malay supremacy).

Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) president Datin Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail said this during an interview with Sin Chew Daily.

In the interview, published today, she stressed that PKR will not become a single-race party but will stay true to its multi-racial party politics.

In a multiracial society, she said, PKR's coalition partner PAS will definitely not be able to set up an Islamic state.

Wan Azizah said although it is PAS's ideology to create an Islamic state, it can only be practised in the overwhelming Malay-majority state of Kelantan, and not the whole of Malaysia due to the country's multiracial makeup.

"We must recognise that Islam is the country's official religion but it is impractical to turn the multiracial and multireligious Malaysia into an Islamic state, everything must be based on the Federal Constitution," she said when asked to state PKR's stand on the Islamic state ideology espoused by PAS, and the party line should PR get the chance to form the federal government.

Wan Azizah is to be nominated for the Parliamentary Opposition job when the 12th Parliament begins its maiden session on Monday.

The Opposition has won 82 parliamentary seats to deny the Barisan Nasional (BN) a two-thirds majority.

It also wrested control of Kedah, Penang, Perak and Selangor from BN in the March 8 general election.

On the opposing stand taken by DAP and PAS on the Islamic state issue, Wan Azizah said: "Islamic state has always been PAS' agenda and DAP, as everyone knows, is against it (making Malaysia an Islamic state).

"The fact is, we all accept that Islam is the official religion of Malaysia, and the three parties should cooperate within the framework of the constitution."

She said the country has the Federal Constitution, and we should follow what is provided for under the constitution.

The reality is that the Malaysian society is made up of Malays, Chinese, Indians and other minority races, making it impossible to establish an Islamic state, she said.

She said PAS alone cannot form the federal government and PAS must recognise the fact that its Islamic state ideology will remain just an idealistic concept.

She also stressed that the voices of the minority races cannot be denied.

"As such, we should not keep talking about Malay supremacy or marginalising a certain race, which is not what the people want to see."

She also refuted the assertion that the Malay leaders in PR have sacrificed the interests of Malays in order to appease non-Malays in the country.

Giving the Selangor state government's decision to go ahead with the centralised pig farming project as an example, she said there is no "so-called sacrifice".

"The project is given the thumbs up because (we) don't want to see (the present) pig farms to continue to pollute the environment.

"We must accept that it is the right of the Chinese to eat pork. Although Muslims do not consume pork but they have no rights to stop non-Muslims from eating pork.

"We must accept others' rights, but not including polluting the environment," she added.

"You can eat pork, but (you) cannot pollute the environment. I believe no one can accept filth and another Nipah outbreak, but its your right (to eat pork) and the Malays should accept centralised pig farming.

Parti Tindakan Rakyat, or Ptir, or Petir, and in English it is PAP!

Petir, or PAP! The symbol is the brainchild of PAP co-founder Pak Samad Ismail! Yes our Pak Samad!






Ever wondered why lightning is the symbol or logo for the PAP?!
The lightning logo of PAP, People Action Party, of Singapore was a brainchild of Pak Samad Ismail, the co-founder of PAP. He suggested the logo should be lightning, or petir in Bahasa Melayu, since in Malay, People's Action Party, is Parti Tindakan Rakyat or thus the acronym PTIR for short!
Whether Lee Kuan Yew (LKY) wants to admit it or not PAP, or PTIR, could not have existed today let alone a republic if it weren't for Pak Samad. But instead LKY, like any Chinese leader at that time did not trust him in the end!
Having said that I think it is incumbent upon the Republic of Singapore to confer Pak Samad a belated recognition, any kind of a recognition, now that he is 84, and it is just proper. A show of magnanimity is good for politically strong Singapore, especially for the sake of our bilateral relationship.
For a start the Singapore High Commissioner to Malaysia, HE Jesudesan can pay Pak Samad a visit during his birthday celebration this Saturday the 26th! Just a thought!

Lot of cheers today!

Rustam A . Sani, a nationalist and a political activist, passed away this morning!

Rustam A. Sani (pix. courtesy of Rockybru)




Rustam A. Sani the son of Ahmad Boestamam, died of heart attack at 63 years old, this morning around 3am. Funeral will be after zohor prayers. Those who wish to pay their respect the house address is at 7519 Jalan Bukit Lela, Gombak, Kuala Lumpur.
For more on his illustrious life as a good human being read here!
I knew him only briefly when we were in the US attending a conference. I find him to be friendly and nice to talk to. I did tell him that his late father was once married to my auntie sister-in-law Shamsiah Fakeh, and he genuinelysmiled, very broadly!
May he find eternal peace to where he is going!
Amin!

Hishamuddin Rais and Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim are just desperate bastards!

Incorrigible bastard this one!


Hishamuddin Warih, pantek lah kau! I have a lot of respect for you for what you had gone through in life in fact I like you, but until just now my friend! Either you have been sleeping with BABI, or you are just not a nice and illogical a person anymore. Your power of deduction is marred by your relationship with BABI!

It is no surprise to hit out at a politician like Najib as he is seen as the front runner to replace Pak Lah but to accuse him of murder based on assumption and unproven claims made in the open court is a serious matter. Strong words indeed “ Apakah pembunuh boleh jadi Perdana Menteri Malaysia” as concluded Hishamuddin Rais in his column. Read here!

That the case is being heard in court is irrelevant to Hishamuddin as he is not interested in the due process and harped on the fact that people known to Najib are involved in the trial and as such the DPM is involved in the murder. Najib had publicly said last year that he did not know or meet Altantuya. A claim made by one Altantuya friends who was a witness in the trial that she met DPM with Razak was never collaborated except by Yang Berbohong (YB) Tian Chua who put on his website a pix which he later admitted to be doctored …. Did he apologise for it? No it is only POLITICS. Anyway the Internet is the most open and free media.

It is sad that despite our rich Malay value and heritage, people like Hishamuddin had no qualm in making wild and unfounded allegations in a shameful language. The internet is used to disseminate lies and falsehood, to poison the mind of readers especially the younger generation by some irresponsible writers like Hishamuddin. No accountability, no responsibility in the article but lies and more lies. Clearly, the allegations and tone used by Hishamuddin is reflective of his mentor, Anwar Ibrahim who have frequently accused Najib of being involved in the murder in the foreign press and the general elections. Again it is only POLITICS.

It is clear that people like Hishamuddin Rais and Anwar is not to keen on the succession plan. Najib, they know has what it takes to put things rights within Umno and BN. Anway, Najib has served over 32 years in public office, an experience politician. It is important to run the DPM down. We all should be alert and aware of this to differentiate the facts and myths.... and again its only POLITICS.

Pak Samad Ismail will be 84 this Saturday and the government should also apologise to him!

Pak Samad and his late wife Hamidah, with them are the children at 3540 Jalan Sudin, and one or two of them I am sure is Nuraina and Maria!



Pak Samad and his lovely late wife Hamidah Hassan.




Pak Samad now, a grand old man of journalism, someone should apologize to him also!





Pak Samad Ismail will be celebrating his 84-year old birthday this Saturday April 26 at 7.30pm at his residence on No 2, Lorong 16/7C, Petaling Jaya. And I firmly believe the government of the day should also compensate and apologise to him for his wrongful incarceration under the draconian Internal Security Act (ISA).
He was accused for being a communist, which I personally do not believe he was one, and was humiliated and made to confess under duress. The home affairs minister at that time was Ghazali Shafiee, a man who was quoted in one of Bob Woodward's book about the CIA, that a "top official of the Malaysian foreign ministry as a CIA liaison man", a description that can only fit Ghazali.
Pak Samad was the country journalism icon and a giant. The government is best to start by apologising to him and the way to compensate him is to help his children, I do not know how but just do it.
Pak Samad sin was he spoke the truth and riled up some insecure and powerful Umno leaders, but a communist he never was. He is a Malay nationalist and has been fighting for the rights of his people and others, and for that he was seen as a danger to the ruling elites at that time.
Come to think of it Salleh Abas dismissal was not as bad as Pak Samad who was being tortured while under detention. Come Pak Lah do the right thing for him before he dies. Those who have maligned him should come forward and seek his forgiveness before you people meet your maker! I have said enough!

ADENDUM: ACTUALLY PAK SAMAD TURNED 84 ON FRIDAY, APRIL 18, SATURDAY IS JUST NICE DINNER WITH NICE PEOPLE! AND I AM INVITED!
====================================================================

Samad Ismail

Tan Sri Abdul Samad Ismail (b. 24 April 1925, Singapore - ) a journalist, political activist, and creative writer, known for promoting Malay nationalism. He was a founding member of the Gerakan Angkatan Muda (Geram) and of the PAP (People's Action Party). He was Chairman of the Malaysian Press Institute and was also a founding member of the National Association of Writers (PENA). For his accomplishments in the literary and journalistic field, he was awarded the title, Pejuang Sastera, meaning "literature champion" by the Malaysian Government.

Early life
From Javanese parentage, Samad Ismail was born and educated in Singapore, and was effectively bilingual in Malay and English. He completed his Senior Cambridge in 1940, just before World War II began, and launched into journalism almost immediately, starting as a cub reporter in the newly established Malay daily, Utusan Melayu.

Politics
During the Japanese Occupation, he did editorial work for the Japanese-sponsored, Berita Malai. The returning British thus had him jailed in 1946 but only briefly. After the war, he returned to the Utusan Melayu as the assistant editor and his influence helped to promote Malay nationalism. His close ties to left-wing Malay nationalists and his anticolonial stance led to a second arrest in 1951. Upon his release in 1953, he returned to his job at the Utusan Melayu and became a founding member of the People's Action Party along with Lee Kuan Yew.

However, disagreements with both Lee Kuan Yew and with the Utusan Melayu saw him leaving for Kuala Lumpur in 1959. There, he would head the Berita Harian and later the New Straits Times. He remained a strong advocate of the Malay language and culture, and continued to explore the complex dimensions of race and politics in Malaysia. He expressed some of these thoughts through his Malay novels which he began writing in the early 1960s. In 1976, he was again arrested under the Malaysian Internal Security Act and was not released until 1981. Upon his release, he returned to the New Straits Times.

Karpal and Uncle Kit start to look like Dato' Bahaman and all, to the Malays now!

PAP logo of Singapore


DAP logo of Malaysia!


Notice the similarity in both logos! You can see PAP in DAP, and DAP in PAP. When PAP was banned in Malaysia they just changed the design of their logo but the spirit it intact! And yet the Malays are so stupid not to realize!

I like what straycat's strut write, I hope you don't mind if I use it for the benefit of others:

"Pasquale, it must be hard to go against the tide but someone has to do it. Somehow its no longer hip to even talk about "melayu" in what used to be persekutuan tanah melayu. The melayu themselves are drunk with the word "malaysian" and Karpal and Uncle Kit starts to look like Dato' Bahaman and all. And Anwar, argh, do they ever know who the guy is before worshipping him like a wali? Dear Melayus, careful of what u wish for."

Pemimpin Umno harus ingat cuma yang tinggal hanya Keretapi Tanah Melayu dan Askhar Melayu!

Kris is a symbol of a protector for all and of a Malay supremacy!



Askhar Melayu diRaja.


To Umno leaders remember, whats left to denote any semblance of this country to be a Malay country, as shown by the existence of the Malay Sultanate governance and system since time immemorial, is just the Keretapi Tanah Melayu and Askhar Melayu!
The opposition parties, read non-Malays, have even been pushing and convincing the Malays that taking the kris out of its sheath is now considered "enemy action", even though kris is an Umno symbol!
It is so sad to see pathetic Umno members that could not defend Hishamuddin Hussein when he unsheathed the symbolic kris to denote Malay supremacy in the party was even attacked by New Straits Times, an Umno paper? Umno has become "cuckold", read more here, after decades of its members being a freeloading jackass and they getting fat.
Keep up at this rate Keretapi Tanam Melayu will become Keretapi Tanah Malaysia, and Askhar Melayu will become Askhar Malaysia.
Now before the non-Malays get all riled up for nothing, it is worth noting here that when we talk about things Malay bear in mind that this is once called Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, the change to Malaysia was made accommodate others that have built and born in this great country. But try not to force the Malays to discard more forthey have been accommodating for far too much already. If they are pushed, trust me the ultras in the party and the community will not relent further when push come to shove!

Salam muhibbah!

MB of Selangor Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim broke the law and......

Arrogant MB!



He is more than just tad arrogant! He is arrogant big time!
There was this story how he scolded a towel lady at his golf club locker room when he scowled at the towel lady saying "don't you know who I am!" at which my friend, who is behind him waiting in line said: "Hey, she does not know who you are man, and no body give a fuck who you are man you are just plain rude!"
My friend who was an ex-commando colonel from Alor Gajah, Malacca, said the towel lady was just asking him to sign the book.
Khalid Ibrahim is one of those Malays who have this massive chip on his shoulders. He, like many Malays like him, believe the whole world owes him a living just because he is a Malay. He as president of the Sultan Sulaiman Club, and a lawmaker, took it upon himself not to apply for a police permit to hold a rally which saw Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim (BABI) scream to the world that he "is the only good leader around".
Tan Sri Khalid broke the law and by all convention he should be hauled in for questioning then charged, since no one is above the law.
I am just tired of all these double standards and lip services given to one group or another. The law is specific. Imagine if the opposition running the country they will interpreted the law according to their whims and fancies! Enough is enough!

Note: In Singapore if anyone clearly caught breaking the law he or she will be dealt with so swiftly! Not this country with such medieval thinking!

Anwar is still a homosexual as deduce by three Federal Court judges!

Anwar Ibrahim continues to harp on the submarines issue and on Altantuya Shaaribuu's. He did it during the run-up to the general elections, and during the elections and now again at his so-called Black 14 gathering at Sultan Sulaiman Club in Kampung Baru last night.
He has on several occasions, sounding like a broken record, accusing the Deputy PM of being involved in a murder.

PKR is so desperate to pin the allegation on Najib Tun Razak that Tian Chua now the YB (Yang Berbohong) for Batu had even the audacity to put a superimposed pictures on the internet of DPM, Razak Baginda and Altantuya having dinner together.

Anwar, and PKR, is not interested in the truth. He is so consumed in destroying another person by poisoning the mind of the rakyat, especially the young people, with falsehood especially through new media.

That the case is now being heard in court does not matter to Anwar and the likes of him. Anwar, via PKR, calls for judicial reforms but the party itself does not respect the judicial process that a person is innocent until proven guilty, Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahin(BABI), of all the people should know this. Anyway, Najib is not on trial here, it must be stressed. PKR and the Opposition is putting him on trial as they want to remove a political opponent, only politics, the truth is not important to them.

And let's not forget, although Federal Court acquitted Anwar of the sodomy conviction, the judges concurred he did engaged in a homosexual activities. Please read the judgement, if you care to know.

And yes, Anwar is still a homosexual as deduce by the Federal Court judges, and any healthy heterosexual should stay away from him.

Biggest kennel of foreign pet poodles, and Anwar Ibrahim is one of them!

CIA-funded organisation and chairman is Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim (BABI)!





Of course I am talking about the CIA-funded "Foundation for the Future" (Foundation) in which Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim (BABI) is the chairman of the board.
It is a well known fact that Wolfowitz the controversial World Bank head was entrusted to supervise the Foundation, and still does.
While for the uninitiated, the Foundation is just a normal NGO with a nice ring to the name but it is more to it then meets the eye.
The Foundation is fully funded by the American Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and it is part and parcel of the American aggressive foreign policy set out to dominate the one most precious commodity that the American cannot live without...PETROLEUM!
Pet poodles from the Middle-East, Africa and Asia, where fossil fuel is still abundant must be created This is why countries like Myanmar, Timor Leste and yes Iraq that cannot be left alone with leaders who have independent mind to think. In Malaysia we have the controversial former Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad who was seen as a bad boy in the eyes of the Western leaders, WHY! Well we can only remember the word RECALCITRANT to describe him by the West but there is more to it than just a word, it is a statement made by the West that this one belligerent man that must be destroyed for he has the key to the petroleum reserve.
American oil companies, ie extension of American foreign policy, are actively sucking out dry the petroleum in Iraq as we speak, and that is what the war is all about. The present lraqi leaders at one timer or another have been associated with the CIA!
The American will find way to control the non-renewable fossil fuel reserve by backing bastard like BABI to be controlled so the reserve in turn can be made accessible.
So the Foundation chaired by BABI is the best way to woo leaders like BABI, yes weak leader or otherwise he would not have succumbed by cushy University chair or chairman of the board of a CIA-funded front!
But if we are fated to be dominated by foreign power via a proxy so be it, but my take for Malaysia is Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim, BABI, must be stopped! However if we Malaysians still refuse use our Grey matter to think about the bleak consequences then God really is not on our side.

I took the liberty of posting a website on the Foundation, and of you care to investigate all of the directors, and chairman, are paid for or funded by the CIA to have a good life!

Agog and Magog burrowed himself out at Sultan Sulaiman Club tonight! Or Anwar Ibrahim is a Moron! (Part 2)

He is a charlatan, a demagogue, and imagine him wearing a turban and a white or a black robe he will surely look like a Hamas, a Taliban leader ordering a suicide bombing mission to his stupid followers!





Tonight Brother Anwar Bin Ibrahim (BABI) repeated the same lies about Dato' Sri Najib Tun Razak's so-called involvement in a couple of government contracts and he is sounding like a broken record. We all know explanation have been given out and yet BABI refused to accept.
Ahmad We all know that Najib is a threat to his scheme of things, for when Najib succeeds AbdullahBadawi, BABI has no way to go but down.
and Malay supremacy and this is not what When he is not in a "kandang babi" or a pig sty, he will champion the Malay cause, Malay rights Pakatan Rakyat is all about. When he is in a kandang babi he will say he will dismantle what he perceived as a "Malay race policy".
As I have said in my previous posting, in this country there is no such thing as a race policy, but just a race oriented program of various racially-based political parties in Malaysia since time immemorial and it is definitely not about to change as it is already a deeply workable and entrenched political system of the country.
This racially based parties work in tandem with a bigger party machinery to make everything go, simple as that.
When Anwar became the DPM and Finance Minister he told Samy Vellu that Hindus did not need any more temples, and by saying that he did not respect the spirit of multi-racially based agreement made when he was just a nobody. Samy Vellu went and saw Dr Mahahtir that day to ask why designated sites for Hindu temples have been de-gazzetted, simply put taken away. And Anwar mock him at the corridor of the old PM's Department in KL.
We must remember this and I shall not repeat myself again, had Anwar be given the chance to run the country, had he successfully "dethroned" Dr Mahathir during the currency crisis, Malaysia would have been a bona fide and a permanent client state of the USA and the "IMF" and the "World Bank".
Mahathir held steadfast to his nationalistic economic policy, and told Malaysians to tighten their belts and to go along on a long "bumpy" economic ride for it would soon should pass. Anwar was wrong and Mahathir was, and is still right!
As a Malay study graduate of the Universiti Malaya, Anwar's grasp of the world, international financial system, and of Malaysia foreign policy is nil, it is solely based on what he learn from Coles precise and compressed books on any subject.
Go to any bookstore in the West you can get Coles thin compressed booklet on Plato, The Prince and many other heavy subjects that Anwar loves to quote to the "untrained ears" of the masses impressing them. Basically, he conned his way to politics by using short impressive quotes and using religion and Dr Mahathir was naive enough to have bought his con job!
Now Anwar is babbling again insinuating to the world Malaysia has been practising a wrong political system and he can remedy the whole situation? He is indeed a Moron of a first class!!
Who does he thinks he is trying to create a dynasty and making comments implying he is the only viable alternative to bringing "ailing" Malaysia back to health?!!
To begin with the system is not sick as he implies, but he is unwell to have still harbour the thought of being politically relevant again, I don't think so!
If you talk about corruption you might want to talk about all of your cronies that you have enriched, tell the country how you dish out big fat contract to built KLIA to your friends?!
So Anwar stop, for you have even overstretched your self-delusional and dreams and it is not good for you.
The people has already know that when you were in the government you did not do anything to change what you claimed or perceived to be wrong, so why are you saying now.

Umno like any sick old man is deteriorating in physique and health! But......!


A cartoon depicting Turkey as a "Sick Man of Europe". What was once a great Ottoman Empire reduced to naught today! A possible comparison with Umno if this party is not careful with its old habits!



Rahim is possibly one of Umno bad old habits that must not be repeated if it wants to be healthy once more!




Like any 50 year old man who does not take care of himself, Umno is suffering from a deteriorating physique and possibly from bad health! But it can recover if it wants!
Like an old man it may be suffering from a deteriorating cardiovascular problem or other general malaise for not taking care of itself.
Metaphorically speaking, the last general elections shows Umno definitely needs to go to a "health farm" or to take Yoga to strenghten the spirit and the old muscle.
I was watching BernamaTV and saw an interview with Rahim Thamby Chik, former Chief Minister of Malacca, and this man as a politician was full of negative publicity. If I were an ordinary member of the public growing up listening and reading what this man was involved in I would reject him as a leader. He was implicated, later found not guilty, in a sex case involving a minor, a sad and a very sickening episode that left bad taste to a lot of Malaysians.
Politic is about perception, my perception on him is never good, hey I am entitled to my views. To hear him say that he would gladly accept any post that he was nominated for is to make me cringe.
When I look at him with his dyed jet black hair and his sinister expression when he speaks I said to myself that Umno can never be healthy again as long as it still wants people like him to be leaders of a once respected and a very old Malay party.
Umno must be diseased free!
I believe Umno can still regain its health by not keeping up with old habits.
Umno does not need leader like Rahim to regain its composure after the last showing of the country recent general elections! Please agree with me on this people, especially Umno people that is, if you want your party to be relevant, AGAIN that is!

Najib is, and will be, the successor!

Pak Lah the Prime Minister!

Najib his successor!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------








Malaysians are by far a very confrontational in nature, be it in personal interaction, in group discussion or even when they are just passive observer, i.e. blogging, even when just thinking!
Did you know that people can get stroke just by thinking critically, for it raises the blood pressure.
I think it has to do with our climate, the heat, the pollution or even our "subversive" Western diet such as Big Mac, Pizza, pasta, tapas and you name and we eat it. These food are designed to make us in the tropic more volatile and more moronic.
Remember the adage "you are what you eat" I think the Westerners an European, especially, are very conscious over or on what they eat. Their food suits their environment. I remember living in the West for such a long time that I grew hair on my chest? And now the hairs have all fallen off now that I am living in the tropic?! Its the food my friend, food for self-preservation!
In our case we, in the tropic, do not care about what we ingest so long as we think they are superior food compared to ours.
And all of the above food and factors mentioned, can also make your decision, vision, thought marred by the delayed synapses connection to our brain. If you are wondering, where are all these are heading for, well they are leading to Mahathir and Musa, Mahathir andGhaffar, Mahathir and Anwar, Mahahtir and Abdullah and finally Abdullah and Najib.
During the 2M administration of Mahathir-Musa, the equation did not work, for both thought they were better and superior than each other, Mahahtir sacked Musa. Then there was Mahathir and Ghaffar and the former thought he was a "dumb-idiot" so asked Anwar to "assassinate" him, which Anwar did!
Then Anwar became a deputy to Mahathir, and he tried to tell the whole world he was better alternative than his boss as a PM. Anwar was sacked and humiliated!
Then Mahathir opted for Abdullah, whom he thought was a "village idiot", in his mind, he thought would be his perfect deputy! Well you can figure out the rest but unless you have just had Western food!
Well Abdullah was a good deputy and he did all the "patient" stuff until he succeeded Mahathir. In hindsight, Abdulah has never been perceived as a usurper, unlike Musa or Anwar.
Then Abdullah then picked Najib as his deputy. (Najib is also not seen as a usurper of power unlike other deputies)
Actually both Abdullah and Najib were the two real deputy prime ministers in a true sense of the word this country ever had, or perhaps Tun Razak was also. They behave like one.
As for Najib, he has always maintained that he is a deputy, and a successor when it comes to that, and not an alternative prime minister or a Prime Minister in waiting as Anwar Ibrahim has always maintained.
Last week, Prime Minsiter Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi publicly said Najib will be his successor when the time comes and Najib reciprocated by saying he is touched by the gesture made by the PM.
I guess the detractors of Abdullah Ahmad Badawi has never understood why Najib is never anything like Anwar Ibrahim or Musa Hitam for that matter.
"People don't realise but I am just a deputy prime Minister to the prime minister and will do my job and will succeed him when the time comes or when I am asked to take over as a successor. My job is to assist him as his deputy, that I will do loyally and diligently," he once said.
Well said Najib! As for all your moronic detractors they will never understand what its like to be a Deputy Prime Minister with the works and how difficult it is to be one, because we will and can never be one!

On Nadeswaran on Chandra Muzaffar on Anwar Ibrahim







I find the Sun Daily is a good buy, although distributed free throughout the Klang valley! The news is easy to read and although many will not admit it but people read the paper because the news is just newsy and refreshing.
Nadeswaran in his Citizen Nades column give a very strong impression Malaysia still holds that freedom of expression even if it is just sometimes elusive.
I find his thought on Chandra Muzaffar interesting. In a reply, his rejoinder, riposte and with his no holds barred repartee, Nades is one of its kind in Malaysia that one day can be a national treasure, therefore I suggest any Sultan or governor reading this must consider him a Datukship for speaking his mind on behalf of Malaysia! Below is a sample of his repartee and rejoinder with Chandra Muzaffar. However, Chandra did explain in his letter to the Sun in response to Nades harsh reply to Chandra's letter to the Sun.

It started with Chandra's response to an article "Honest Journalism" in which Chandra said:

More pro-establishment? Not quite’ IN theSun’s interview with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, (Conversations, March 27) journalist Terence Fernandez makes a defamatory remark about me which has to be set right in the interest of accurate, honest jou

rnalism. He says that, "After Chandra was released from the ISA, he seemed to be more pro-establishment." I was released from detention under the ISA on Dec 18, 1987, after 52 days. At the end of January 1988 I issued a media statement as president of Aliran, in the name of a variety of NGOs, urging the government to free the rest of the ISA detainees and abolish the ISA. From May 1988 till the middle of 1989 I wrote a series of articles in the Aliran Monthly and spoke at a number of forums criticising the government for the unjust ouster of former Lord President Tun Salleh Abas, and the emasculation of the judiciary. In early 1990, together with a handful of other independent members, I resigned from the Majlis Perundingan Ekonomi Negara (Mapen), to protest what we regarded as the government’s manipulation of Mapen for electoral purposes. It was only after I stepped down as president of Aliran in November 1991 and helped to found a new NGO with some friends in Penang called the Just World Trust in 1992 that I shifted my focus to international affairs. But when a major crisis erupted with the incarceration of, and assault on, Anwar in September 1998 I redirected my energies to Malaysian politics and was in the forefront of a movement called Adil which was not only critical of the Malaysian government’s treatment of Anwar but also of the subversion of democratic institutions. When an opposition political party called KeADILan Nasional was established on the foundations of this movement the following year, I was appointed its deputy president and even contested – and lost – the 1999 general election. I continued in this role for the next 2½ years. At the end of 2001, however, I withdrew completely from party politics and now concentrate upon Just activities and my academic work. This brief record of my activities since my release from ISA belies Fernandez’s mischievous allegation that after my ISA release I "seemed to be more pro-establishment". Dr Chandra Muzaffar Kuala Lumpur This is what Nades's repsonse to Chandra's letter (above).

Honest journalism R. Nadeswaran Comment by R. Nadeswaran THIS newspaper has prided itself as one of the few that practise the poli cy of "right of reply." I have on several occasions said that everyone has a right to disagree with my views and I will endeavour to publish their views, subject to the editor’s right to edit it for clarity and relevancy. Sometimes, letters and replies are not published in full because of space constraints. Therefore, when colleagues in the office told me on Sunday that they received mail from Dr Chandra Muzaffar on the interview done by Terence Fernandez and this writer (theSun, March 27), my first reaction, without even sighting those letters, was: Use them. Yesterday morning, I read the first of two letters published in this newspaper (another follows on Thursday). First let me declare my interests – Terence is my colleague and I was at that interview with Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim. I don’t want to split hairs with Chandra, but I want to put the record straight. As much as he has an opinion about Anwar, Terence has his views about the former Keadilan deputy president. Chandra asserts that he wants to set right a statement "in the interests of accurate, honest journalism." I have no qualms about that. I know my colleague’s honesty and integrity, and what’s more, his obsession with accuracy. After all, he has been reporting directly to me in various capacities since 1999 and I have always had the pleasure of going through almost all his copy. Therefore, I take umbrage at insinuations and allegations that Terence’s comments were "mischievous". He made a comment and to emphasise the point, he used the word "seems", which is the perception - after Chandra’s infamous view – "that it would be an unmitigated disaster for Malaysia" should Anwar become prime minister. We were soliciting an answer from Anwar because Chandra had made all kinds of derogatory remarks about the former deputy prime minister. This does not make it dishonest or inaccurate journalism or mischievous as Chandra views it. If he wants to take any consolation, let it be said that I edited the copy before it was published. Chandra, in his letter, explains his stand and what he had done after he was released from detention under the Internal Security Act. That cannot be denied, all that can be said is: "Well done!" Saying anything more will be condescending. But how did he come to the conclusion that Anwar made those remarks of the Hindu temple in Penang when he was never present? Anwar has since clarified that he went alone, albeit with two plainclothes officers to sort out the matter. The only logical conclusion of any right-thinking person is that Chandra was speaking on hearsay or rumours or even authentic information, which he has chosen not to disclose. There has been plenty of discussions on the blogosphere on Chandra’s comments, but these extracts from a press release from members of the Aliran Executive Committee are more to the point, and I believe the writers’ honesty and accuracy: Chandra’s remarks as reported in the mainstream media appear to emphasise that Anwar Ibrahim is not a leader who can be trusted. Apparently, money politics is also prevalent in the PKR. If this is true, it is cause for concern because the implications are that the money politics disease has spread from the BN to the PKR! From our knowledge, money politics is indeed widespread within the ruling BN parties. It is odd, therefore, that Chandra should be so concerned about the problem of money politics in PKR per se. At the same time, he has not said much of late about the money politics which has always been associated with the BN. Chandra also has highlighted the supposedly racial scare tactics used by PKR during the Lunas by-election. For us, such dirty tricks have been resorted to by all parties especially the BN. Again, all forms of racial baiting by all parties should be condemned. The most disturbing aspect of this episode is how Dr Chandra has wittingly or unwittingly lent himself to be a part of the BN propaganda machine. It is sad that a prominent intellectual and long-time activist of his standing has such a blinkered view of the issue at hand. We wonder why he did not make these alleged goings-on public earlier and follow up on them conclusively given his public stance on integrity and accountability. Why only now?




AND This is what Chandra response to Nades article:

I WAS surprised – and disappointed – to read R. Nadeswaran’s reaction (April 1) to my letter to theSun (March 31) on Terence Fernandez’s remark about my orientation after my ISA arrest in 1987. My purpose was to correct Fernandez’s remark about my seeming "to be more pro-establishment" after my release from ISA. Let me also add that this "pro-establishment individual" lost his job as professor and director of the Centre for Civilisational Dialogue at the University of Malaya in 1999 because of his stand on the Anwar Ibrahim issue. The temple bells issue and Anwar and his politics are extraneous to my primary concern which was to set the record straight about my post-ISA position. The temple bells issue is part of Anwar’s defamation suit against me, which is why I have not commented on it. As for the Aliran statement, from which Nadeswaran quotes extensively to reinforce his case, I replied to it as soon as it was issued. I am attaching my reply. Chandra’s reply to Aliran’s statement. Let me begin by correcting some erroneous phrases in the Aliran media statement. I had not said that the BN "is a better choice". Neither The Star nor the NST which reported my speech at the Forum on the General Election organised by The Star on 3 March, 2008 used that phrase. What I said was that "at this juncture in our history, the BN, despite all its flaws, constitutes the only viable inter-ethnic coalition in the country". I then explained why the attempt by the Opposition to create an alternative coalition between 1999 and 2001, in which I was involved, together with others, failed. That "the BN … is a better choice" is a phrase concocted by Aliran officials who had signed the statement. By the same token, there is no way that my remarks on Anwar could be construed as an "emotional outburst". The half a minute answer I gave was in response to a question from a member of the audience. I spelt out briefly the reasons why I thought Anwar was not fit to lead a multi-ethnic nation. There are many other factors that disqualify him from performing a leadership role which I shall reveal at the right time. Some of my unhappiness with Anwar and Parti Keadilan Nasional (as it was then known) which I quit in December 2001, I chose to share with Aliran president P. Ramakrishnan at a dinner in a Petaling Jaya restaurant in early 2002. From the notes I have kept of our meeting, I was quite candid with him about money politics in the party, the lack of financial accountability, and its manipulation of communal sentiments. It was information that I have over the years brought to the notice of a handful of other friends. In a couple of interviews with local magazines I had also alluded to these weaknesses within the party and its leadership. But I never really exposed the politics of PKR and Anwar until March 3, 2008. Aliran leaders, like some others who have made caustic comments about my criticism of Anwar, ask why I had decided to go public at this time, in the midst of the 12th general election campaign. As I have explained, I did not choose the moment or the occasion. I was merely replying to a question from the floor. My answer has prompted a variety of individuals and groups within and without the political arena to expose the machinations and manipulations of a Machiavellian politician. For this master of deceit and duplicity was beginning to hoodwink a gullible segment of Malaysian society into believing that he was that long awaited "knight in shining armour" who would deliver the masses into that glorious paradise of justice and equality. It is partly because "the knight" has been unmasked that many more Malaysians have become conscious of what is at stake at this critical moment in their lives when they once again exercise their right to determine their future. The unmasking of their "knight" has obviously made the Aliran leaders unhappy. They demand to know why I am "so concerned about the problem of money politics in PKR" and yet have not "said much of late about the money politics which has always been associated with the BN". If any of the Aliran leaders had been at the 3rd March forum, he would acknowledge that in my presentation I had highlighted corruption in the upper echelons of politics and business as one of the three major challenges confronting the nation. I had also suggested that the widening gap between the "have-a-lot" and the "have-a-little" and the strengthening of democracy are two other challenges that demand the urgent attention of the ruling elite. Since the main thrust of my presentation was the relationship between the ethnic situation and the forthcoming election, I also expressed the view that the ruling elite of the last few decades was largely responsible for allowing ethnic polarisation to worsen. At the end of my talk, I proposed that the BN should at the grassroots level begin to transform itself into a truly multi-ethnic rather than an inter-ethnic party in order to enhance national integration. It is of course true that these Malaysian concerns have not been the primary foci of my attention in the last decade and a half. This is because I have been concentrating on the global power structure. But I am aware of how that global structure impacts upon the local. It is because I know quite a bit about the global-local interface that I am deeply worried about Anwar Ibrahim’s role in Malaysian politics. Chandra Muzaffar Petaling Jaya. March 7, 2008. ends

I don't know about you but I find the repartee between the two is interesting. However, my take is journalists sometime do sensationalize issues. If we read what Chandra said his answer was made at a spur of a moment for us to decide on his credibility. Personally I think he is still a man and an intellectual with integrity! Cheers! For the SUN have a good one!







Clarification on allegations made by desperate Anwar Ibrahim against Najib Tun Razak!

Anwar Ibrahim, strangely enough, does not and has never condemn Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, or his Son-in-Law Khairy Jamaluddin (KJ) on anything! Do you often wonder Why ?!!

Well, to begin with one "never bite the hand that feeds you", Yes it was Khairy who went to Anwar's house upon his release, by Dollah Badawi, to give him his passport so that he can go overseas to spread his convincing lies to the whole wide world! You see Anwar is totally indebted to the hand!
During the last general elections Anwar again went on the offensive to attack Najib, it is as though BN government is only being rule by only Umno deputy-president Najib Tun Razak, for Anwar has never personally attack other BN or Umno politicians like Dollah Badawi, or Khairy for that matter!
In fact when Khairy attacks Anwar the latter never retaliates, and we also know the reason for this,
What! You do not know the reason why?!
KJ made superficial attacks on Anwar as though to distance himself from Anwar, that will make him genuinely against Anwar??! KJ must really think we Malaysians are stupid!!
Okay, let me just tell you as it is.. The plan that is in place is, to kill Najib then Anwar can come back(do not know how yet) to the fold then contest for the much coveted trophy: THE party presidency where Anwar will be made Prime Minister!!!! Then KJ hopes to be made deputy Umno president and eventually will become a deputy to Anwar!!
So now you know. Well, Anwar went on his own crusade to ensure Najib's reputation will be tarnished by making scurrilous and disparaging remarks if not Anwar will have no chance in Hell or anywhere to be what he believes, his pre-determined and God-ordained person to rule Malaysia!? No sir, that would be over many of our dead bodies before you can be one, or even KJ for that matter,if he has ambition to be this country's leader!!

I took the liberty of re-publishing a write up by another fellow Bloggers of his rebuttal on Anwar's wild and desperate, and how illogical, and silly and so plain stupid that is for Najib to be involved in skimming money from some projects, or even to order for somebody to be killed!!
I want you all to read and digest the rebuttal by Big Dog Dotcom that apeared sometime back on Anwars allegations! For once stop being a Moron and think clearly my fellow Malaysians!!

Penjelasan Isu Kontrak Scorpene dan SU30MKM

PENJELASAN BERHUBUNG ISU PEROLEHAN
KAPAL SELAM SCORPENE DAN PESAWAT SUKHOI SU30MKM
OLEH ANGKATAN TENTERA MALAYSIA

Kementerian Pertahanan hari ini ingin memberi penjelasan berhubung kenyataan-kenyataan yang dibuat oleh pihak-pihak tertentu tentang perolehan pesawat Sukhoi SU30MKM dan kapal selam Scorpene oleh Angkatan Tentera Malaysia.

Kementerian Pertahanan mendapati bahawa kenyataan-kenyataan yang dibuat terutama oleh parti-parti politik tertentu mengenai perolehan kelengkapan tersebut sejak akhir-akhir ini telah menimbulkan banyak kekeliruan dan salah faham di dalam masyarakat.

Selain itu, ia juga menimbulkan persepsi negatif dan prasangka bahawa perolehan kelengkapan untuk keperluan Angkatan Tentera Malaysia telah dilaksanakan tanpa mengikut prosedur yang ditetapkan, tidak telus dan membazir.

Di sini, pihak Kementerian ingin memaklumkan bahawa semua rundingan perolehan adalah dijalankan mengikut Tatacara Perlaksanaan Kontrak-Kontrak Perolehan Peralatan Pertahanan Negara oleh pegawai-pegawai kerajaan. Ia melibatkan pelbagai peringkat kelulusan termasuk Jawatankuasa Teknikal dan Jawatankuasa Rundingan Harga setelah penilaian-penilaian yang teliti dibuat demi memastikan perolehan tersebut menepati keperluan Angkatan Tentera Malaysia.

Selain itu, rujukan juga dibuat kepada pihak Jabatan Peguam Negara bagi mendapatkan kelulusan ke atas klausa-klausa kontrak tersebut. Semua terma-terma dan kelulusan untuk rundingan terus dikemukakan kepada Kementerian Kewangan dan kontrak hanya akan ditandatangani selepas kelulusan Kementerian Kewangan diperolehi.

Berhubung dengan perolehan kapal selam Scorpene, Kementerian Pertahanan ingin menegaskan bahawa dakwaan kononnya kerajaan telah membayar komisen sebanyak RM540 juta kepada Encik Abd Razak Baginda merupakan satu tuduhan yang tidak berasas sama sekali.

Kementerian juga ingin menegaskan bahawa dalam soal perolehan kapal selam Scorpene, TIDAK ADA sebarang komisen yang dibayar kepada syarikat Perimekar Sdn. Bhd. seperti yang didakwa. Ini kerana perolehan kapal selam telah dibuat secara rundingan terus - selaras dengan tatacara perolehan kerajaan - dengan syarikat pembuat iaitu ARMARIS (Perancis) dan NAVANTIA (Sepanyol) yang telah mendapat persetujuan kerajaan masing-masing.

Sebaliknya, syarikat Perimekar Sdn. Bhd. yang didakwa menerima komisen, sebenarnya diberikan kontrak menyediakan perkhidmatan sokongan dan koordinasi untuk tempoh selama enam tahun. Nilai kontrak tersebut adalah sebanyak EURO 114.96 juta, yang dibayar secara berperingkat-peringkat mengikut kemajuan pelaksanaan projek.

Perimekar Sdn Bhd dimiliki bersama oleh Lembaga Tabung Angkatan Tentera (LTAT), Boustead Holdings Berhad dan K.S.Ombak Laut Sdn. Bhd.

Skop kerja perkhidmatan sokongan adalah seperti berikut:

1. Menyediakan kemudahan kediaman beserta kelengkapan untuk tim projek bagi 27 keluarga di Perancis dan Sepanyol untuk tempoh enam tahun.

2. Menyediakan pejabat urusan dan kediaman beserta kelengkapan bagi krew kapal selam TLDM seramai 156 orang untuk tempoh empat tahun di Perancis dan Sepanyol.

3. Menyediakan insurans kesihatan bagi anggota serta keluarga tim projek dan krew kapal selam di Perancis dan Sepanyol

4. Membayar elaun harian dan elaun krew kapal selam sebanyak EURO 50 sehari seorang untuk tiga tahun pertama dan EURO 60 sehari seorang untuk tiga tahun kedua.

5. Membiayai kos penerbangan pergi dan balik bagi setiap krew kapal selam untuk balik bercuti ke Malaysia pada setiap 4 bulan (tiga kali setahun).

6. Lain-lain keperluan tim projek dan krew kapal selam di Perancis dan Sepanyol

Perkhidmatan koordinasi pula melibatkan:

1. Bertanggungjawab memastikan penyertaan syarikat Malaysia dalam pembinaan dan membantu syarikat-syarikat Malaysia yang berpotensi untuk menyertai program off-set.

2. Membantu kontraktor utama dalam memberi maklumat tentang prosedur kerajaan berhubung perlaksanaan kontrak.

3. Menyelaras latihan krew kapal selam antara kontraktor dengan kerajaan.

4. Menyediakan laporan koordinasi setiap enam bulan.

Jumlah kontrak EURO 114.96 juta bukanlah merupakan keuntungan bersih milik syarikat Perimekar Sdn Bhd., sebaliknya jumlah ini adalah meliputi segala pembayaran kos langsung bagi skop perkhidmatan sokongan dan tanggungan ke atas kos tidak langsung bagi perkhidmatan koordinasi seperti yang ditetapkan dalam kontrak tersebut.

Kementerian Pertahanan membuat keputusan untuk melantik sebuah syarikat tempatan bagi menyediakan perkhidmatan sokongan dan koordinasi kerana kaedah tersebut dianggap lebih sesuai dan berkesan. Ia juga bagi tujuan melicinkan kerja-kerja Tim Projek membuat pemantauan ke atas pembinaan dan latihan krew kapal selam di Perancis dan Sepanyol.

Selain itu, segala perbelanjaan untuk projek kapal selam ini dapat dikawal dan dijadualkan manakala perbelanjaan di luar jangka (cost over-run) dapat dielakkan memandangkan pelaksanaan projek perolehan kapal selam memakan tempoh masa yang panjang iaitu selama enam tahun serta melibatkan bilangan anggota yang ramai.

Berdasarkan kepada keperluan tersebut, maka syarikat Perimekar Sdn. Bhd. telah dilantik untuk menyediakan perkhidmatan yang diperlukan mengikut skop kerja yang ditetapkan.

800px-sukhoi_su30_af.jpg

Tentang perolehan pesawat Sukhoi SU30MKM pula, Kementerian Pertahanan ingin menyatakan bahawa perolehan adalah dibuat secara rundingan terus dengan Rosoboronexport, syarikat milik negara Russia.

Rundingan terus ini adalah selari dengan dasar negara Rusia dan negara-negara lain yang mempunyai polisi bagi mengawasi penjualan peralatan ketenteraan keluaran syarikat negara masing-masing agar tidak terlepas kepada pihak-pihak yang tidak bertanggungjawab.

Berdasarkan senario tersebut, semua kontrak-kontrak perolehan peralatan pertahanan ditandatangani oleh wakil Kementerian Pertahanan bagi pihak Kerajaan Malaysia dengan syarikat-syarikat Principal negara asing, termasuk dalam soal pembelian pesawat Sukhoi. Perolehan pesawat ini juga mematuhi Tatacara Perlaksanaan Kontrak-Kontrak Perolehan Peralatan Pertahanan Negara.

Dalam soal pembelian pesawat Sukhoi, syarikat Rosboronexport telah melantik sebuah syarikat tempatan untuk memudahkan urusan mereka di negara ini. Justeru, Kementerian ingin menegaskan bahawa sebarang urusan perniagaan antara Rosboronexport dan syarikat tempatan yang dilantik adalah merupakan urusan perniagaan biasa semata-mata dan sama sekali tidak melibatkan Kerajaan Malaysia.

Dengan penjelasan ini, maka Kementerian Pertahanan berharap agar semua pihak memahami keadaan sebenar dan tidak lagi mengeluarkan kenyataan-kenyataan yang mengelirukan dan boleh menimbulkan persepsi negatif terhadap Angkatan Tentera Malaysia, Kementerian Pertahanan dan Kerajaan Malaysia.

Sebenarnya, isu yang dibangkit Pembangkang dalam siri kempen Pilihanraya Kecil Ijok ini bahawa sejumlah RM 530 juta berbentuk komsiyen (atau kickback) dari pendapatan kedua dua kontrak ini disalurkan kepada pemimpin politik tertentu, sebenarnya tidaklah logik.

Ini kerana kontrak asal kedua dua projek pembelian senjata ini berjumlah RM 3.5 billion + RM 3.6 billion dan jumlah komisyen (atau kickback) yang diutarakan itu ialah 7.5% dari kontrak pembelian, 5% melebihi dari amalan biasa badan industri dan perdagangan antarabangsa (OECD) yang dianggotai negara negara Barat dan maju.

Mana mana syarikat perindustrian negara ahli OECD yang membelakangi dasar yang dipersetujui, seperti jumlah komisyen yang boleh ditawarkan keatas sebarang pembelian atau perkhidmatan, akan dianggap sebagai menyalahi amalan sihat dan akan di’pulau’kan dalam mana mana persaingan pembidaan sebarang pembelian peringkat antarabangsa akan datang.

Ini sesuatu yang biasa dielakan oleh syarikat industri negara anggota OECD, termasuk DCNi, Thales dan Pielstick dari Perancis, Ixar Navantia dari Sepanyol dan Whitehead Allenia dari Itali-Perancis, pembekal utama program pembelian kapal selam Scorpene. Thales juga pembekal utama avionic bagi pembelian Pesawat tempur utama Sukhoi SU 30 MKM.

Paling penting, tiada bukti keatas dakwaan liar ini. Pemimpin yang bankrap politik sengaja mensensasikan isu ini dengan melempar tuduhan tuduhan liar tanpa asas tetapi berbunyi begitu kontroversi dan amat mudah menjadi tarikan masyarkat yang memang sentiasa mencari berita berita kontroversi yang amat sensasi.
