DAP ( Dead Against Police ) or ( Discrimination Against Police ) accuses police of beating up youth, produces video evidence

We elected these DAP people to govern the country , provide jobs and to ensure all its countrymen have a good livelihood , but instead of doing that , they are waging a war against the police , the people whose duty is to protect us . These elected Yang Berbodohs are protecting drug addicts , juvenile criminals , season criminals , hardcore car thieves , serial rapists etc . They are turning every trivial criminal issue into a fishing for votes exercise . Instead of protecting the very institution whose men put their lives on duty , these Yang Berbodohs are making them a mockery of the country .

One day should they be lucky to form the government , what do you think these people in blue uniform will do ? Let the criminals run wild , they will have a field day . Silly and stupid of these people to wage a war against the people in blue . That's why these YBs are called Yang Berbodohs
By Clara Chooi

KUALA LUMPUR, April 30 — The DAP today accused the police of yet another case of power abuse, claiming policemen beat up a 17-year-old boy in Perak after arresting him on suspicion that he was a drug addict.

Taiping MP Nga Kor Ming even produced a video, believed to have been recorded on someone’s mobile phone, as evidence of the purported case of police brutality.

The five and a half minute video shows a group of about 10 men, with one of them holding on to what looks like a wooden stick or a steel pipe, handcuffing the SM Tengku Menteri student to the exhaust pipe of a motorcycle and subsequently beating him up.

The men, one of whom was garbed in a collared t-shirt bearing the Royal Malaysian Police insignia, were also seen stepping on the boy’s head and kicking him numerous times, rendering him unconscious. The youth was also stripped down to his underwear and dragged around.

Nga called on the Bukit Aman police headquarters to conduct an open and impartial investigation into the matter to determine if police personnel were indeed involved.

“It is very suspicious... how did the men get the police uniform with the RMP logo and how did they come into possession of the handcuffs?

Whats so suspicious ?

Just make a police report with the evidence , simple as that , why want to make a big hue and cry over that ? It is so easy to obtain a police uniform with all the insignas , badges and hand cuffs if you know where to look for it . And do policeman normally comes in a group of ten ? Unless they arrive in a troop carrier or a convoy of patrol cars .

Typical of these Yang Berbodohs to spin just like they publish two videos in Malaysia Today at one time beating up a shop lifter which turns out to be security guards wearing white uniforms and claiming them to be policeman beating up the poor guy .

Chinese group wants PM to intervene in MCA-Perkasa spat

Ibrahim had labelled the Chinese community as ungrateful after the Hulu Selangor by-election. — file pic

PUTRAJAYA, April 30 — The Federation of Chinese Associations Malaysia (Huazong) wants the prime minister to intervene and help resolve the war of words between Perkasa and MCA.

Its deputy secretary-general, Chin Yew Sin, told The Malaysian Insider that the continued conflict between MCA and the Malay right-wing group will be detrimental to Barisan Nasional’s (BN) chances in the next general election.

“The prime minister should advise everybody to stop talking about this sensitive issue. He should step in and stop the argument. He should stop this racial argument because the longer it continues, then it would be near impossible for BN to recapture the support of the Chinese community,” he said.

He criticised Perkasa for attacking other races, especially the Chinese community, after the recently concluded Hulu Selangor by-election.

“It is OK if you want to ask [for] something for your community but don’t attack other communities. I think it is not good for Perkasa to do that.

“Especially after the Hulu Selangor by-election, it was too much of them to ask the government not to give aid to the Chinese community. Who are you? You can fight for your rights but do not deny other people of their rights,” he said.

Perkasa’s chief Datuk Ibrahim Ali called the Chinese community “ungrateful” and urged the government to ignore demands made by the MCA and Gerakan as punishment for their failure to attract Chinese voters.

Chinese support for BN dipped below 30 percent when MIC’s P. Kamalanathan secured a 1,725-vote majority win over PKR’s Datuk Zaid Ibrahim, down from the 35 per cent it had garnered during Election 2008.

Chin also agreed with MCA’s assessment that “organisations like Perkasa” was the reason for BN’s failure in recapturing the community’s support, especially in last Sunday’s by-election.

“I think it is one of the reasons because all this while, the Chinese community feels that they have not been treated fairly by the government. So when some leaders start uttering strange statements, then of course it will arouse their emotions.

“I think [the reason] why the Chinese community did not vote for Barisan Nasional is because they were not happy with the statements of not only Perkasa but also government leaders,” he said.

Chin was also disappointed with Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s willingness to defend Perkasa and its racial rhetoric.

The former premier yesterday told MCA to rid itself of “extremist Chinese” before demanding that Umno reject the Malay right-wing group.

“I think this is not a fair statement because in every community, there are bound to be extremists. As an elder statesman, he should try to ease the tension and not get involved in the war of words between Perkasa and MCA. He should try to stop it and not encourage it,” he said.

The parents should be held responsible !

Before I start let's look at the following articles :

Neighbours’ anger over trigger-happy cops

By Neville Spykerma

SHAH ALAM, April 28 — Neighbours who knew Aminulrasyid Amzah today could not contain their emotions as they expressed outrage over his shooting by police.

The Form Three student was driving his sister’s Proton Iswara and is alleged to have attempted to ram a police road-block in Section 11 here, before the fatal shooting occurred early Monday morning.

“This is not Manchester or Los Angeles, this is bloody Malaysia,” said Nadzimuddin Pip, who added the police should have been better trained to differentiate between criminals and boys.

The retiree, along with businessman Wan Rahim Tajuddin, whose house in Section 11 is exactly at the spot where the Proton Iswara eventually crashed, said they had initially assumed police has scored a major success against a criminal.

“His body was lying face down in the car and surrounded by police. We didn’t realise it was Aminul until the next day,” said Wan Rahim, who broke down as he spoke.

He said Aminul was a close friend of his son, and expressed regret they did not have a chance to see the dead teenager’s face.

The men were relating the incident to MPs Lim Guan Eng, Lim Kit Siang and Dr Lo’Lo’ Mohd Ghazali at the scene of the incident in Section 12 this afternoon.

Kit Siang earlier led a delegation of Pakatan Rakyat (PR) lawmakers to Aminulrasyid’s home where they spoke and expressed their condolences to his mother Norsiah Mohamad, 60.

Norsiah said contrary to press reports, her son was only 14 and not 15-years-old.

Kit Siang wants to know why boy was shot from the back

Politics and the death of a school-boy

APRIL 30 — Aminulrasyid Amzah is barely buried, and already the political knives are out, with both Umno and Pakatan Rakyat clamouring for the right to champion justice for him and his family. Naturally, the ostensibly non-partisan folk are coming out of the woodwork to sternly warn against “politicising” the death of this 14-year-old boy.

Let's debate :

If there were worst politicians in this country I would give the medal of honour to Pakatan leaders for their lack of social etiquette, unashamedly politicising the incident to their own advantage without giving due consideration to the feelings of the family members of the deceased.It's about time these uncouth and uncultivated politicians learn to differentiate what politics and what are acceptable social behaviour. How we should react in time of grief and bereavement, particularly other people's grief. They are turning people's grief to fish for votes :

Lets take a look at the first pic . Why is the Father and son Guan Eng there when he has other more important duties to perform as the Chief Mininster of Penang ? or is he the Cheap Minister of Penang ? Until today the saying goes , Penang is on auto pilot because the CM is always not in Penang , either in parliament , KL , Malacca , Perak or on issues like these when he still thinks he is Mr Opposition . Penangites should send him a strong message come next GE . He could have left this to others within his PR grouping and not be involved unless he is fishing for votes at the expense of the police .

There are many unanswered questions :

a) Why would the parents of the boy not aware that he is still not in bed and not at home at that material time ?
b) what is he doing in the middle of the night at 2am in the morning ?
c ) why is he not in bed when he has school the next day ?
d) why is he a form three student driving his sister’s Proton Iswara without a license ?
e) why didin't he stop at a police road-block in Section 11 ?
f ) why did he attempted to ram a police road-block ?
g) why did he attempt to run away when police fired warning shots ?
h) the police claim he was trying to reverse his car into the officers pursuing him, so they had no choice but to fire , why did he do that ?
i) Kit Siang wants to know why boy was shot from the back ! If you are driving a car and reversing to ram police from the back , do you expect the him to be shot from the front ?when you are standing from the back of the car ?
The parents of the boy should be held responsible for their son's untimely death due to lack of parental control !

Put yourself in the policeman situation .

You have a guy driving a car attempting to ram you by reversing . Its dark since it is 2am . Do you think the policeman would be able to distinguish the driver as a 14 yr old school boy ? or as a wanted criminal attempting to get away at all cost ? unless of course he advertises himself , hey don't shoot I am only 14 . There are 14 yr old who look like adults and adults who look like school boys ( midgets and dwarfs ) . Do you think the policeman would have shot him if he had not attempted to ram them ? So who is to be blamed ? If you are the policeman with a family , would you shoot if you think your life is in danger ? Its either him or me , so I'll shoot first asks questions later .
A vehicle can be used as a weapon, a weapon doesn’t mean that it is only a gun, knife or parang. If you refuse to stop and try to plough the officers who are trying to stop you, it can be a weapon because it becomes a danger to the lives of enforcement officers,”

Justice must be seen to be not only to the boy but also to the policeman who fired the shot and who put their lives in danger in the line of duty .

politicians stay out and let the police do their work !

I stand by the One who walks his talks .

I have been asked countless times why I am supporting Najib ? In Umno , there are the moderates who truly wants a Malaysian Malaysia and there are the hawks , who have their personal self interests to protect . Its very clear who are the hawks in UMNO , and who wants to see Najib fails in his 1 Malaysia . All racists statements came out from people trusted by Najib , when Najib says something , these people will twist and say something else . For eg , when Najib says I am Malaysian first , somebody will say I am Malay first , Malaysian second . Then there are the rest like Nasir , etc etc .

Who are these hawks ? they have group together in the form of Perkasa where one Mamak is the advisor to this group , and who's the head ? The one who will become PM should Najib is forced out . How to get Najib out ? same tactic used during the Prematang Pauh By-election . Make sure BN candidate loses in HS and they will be spinning the Rakyat does not agree to Najib's One Malaysia .

During the Permatang Pauh by- election suddenly we have one UMNO division chairman who appeared during the last days of campaign to proclaim on stage that the Chinese are pendatangs . What was the result ? Chinese votes for BN vanished into thin air . And who is this guy ? he was once a very staunch supporter of Anwar Ibrahim . Why would someone from UMNO utter that in a ceramah ? Think ....who will be the beneficiary of the protest votes from the Chinese ?

Similarly in Hulu Selangor , to help Zaid wins ( they don't mind he wins as long as it serves their purpose of discrediting the number one ) someone did a repeat performance which was found to be very effective in P. Pauh . They lost the Chinese votes but the Indians voted for the man with the same color . That is important . But luckily some Chinese didn't fall in for their trick as was shown in the areas covered by Ong Tee Keat for the reason , we all know , ie morality issue . Pak Lah wanted to change the system when he became PM with his work with me not for me but found the under current too strong to change and in the process succumbed to the warlords and little Napoleans and got drowned in his own well . If you can remember who was the one who insisted that Pak Lah step down immediately several times ? Not Najib . Who were the drum beaters ? Well the one who cried on stage and said he made a mistake making him the PM . Who are the current drum beaters on this issue ? Same players lah ! maybe with an additional new kid on the sewage dump .

We have to look beyond the trees , where the forrest are , do not be short sighted . We must support a PM who walks his talk , does what he says will do , or do as he promises , not someone who is forever thinking and planning of how to brutus his boss like what happens in MCA .

MCA says Ibrahim Ali is publicity hungry

By Clara Chooi

KUALA LUMPUR, April 29 — The MCA hit out again at Malay rights group Perkasa, and accused its president of being a publicity seeker.

Emphasising once again that Perkasa was just an NGO, MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek said that its chief Datuk Ibrahim Ali was just reaping all the publicity he could gain from the constant rebuttal of his statements, seen by some to be extreme in nature.

“Maybe it is through this constant rebuttal that he (Ibrahim) finds a lot of publicity and gets enjoyment out of it,” Dr Chua (picture) pointed out at a press conference after a lengthy meeting with members of the party’s presidential council here this afternoon.

He said Ibrahim’s support was contrary to the prime minister’s 1 Malaysia platform which, he said, was all-inclusive and more moderate.

“People like Ibrahim Ali will always find his niche market which I am sure is growing smaller and smaller over time.

“Perkasa, as an NGO, has the right to say what it wants but most important is whether the people believe them or not,” he said.

He took cognisance of the fact that Perkasa’s widening influence had affected the Chinese voters’ perception of the Barisan Nasional but expressed confidence that in time, the MCA would not need to have to rebut everything that the Malay rights group said.

“I am sure that most Malaysians, irrespective of race, will subscribe to a leadership that is moderate, more liberal, accommodative and which pursues the middle path.

MCA slams ‘racist’ remarks from Umno leaders

By Adib Zalkapli

KUALA LUMPUR, April 29 — MCA vice-president Gan Ping Sieu said today that racist remarks by Umno leaders have become a stumbling block to Barisan Nasional’s (BN) efforts to win back Selangor from Pakatan Rakyat (PR).

He was commenting on a blog post by state Opposition Leader Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo. The Selangor Umno man had said that Chinese voters in Hulu Selangor failed to show appreciation for the BN federal government’s initiatives, choosing instead to back PR.

“The racist-bent blog posting dated April 26 by the former mentri besar of Selangor, Datuk Seri Dr Mohd Khir Toyo, levelled against the Chinese community in Selangor is one of the main stumbling blocks which makes it difficult for Barisan Nasional to recover the Selangor state government from Pakatan Rakyat,” said Gan in a statement today.

“As the Selangor BN leader, Khir Toyo must not make such racist remarks as they would ultimately lead to the failure of the 1 Malaysia concept promoted by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak,” he added.

“Let it be known that if racist diatribes are allowed to continue, it would be close to impossible for BN to overturn its loss of the Selangor state government in the next general election,” said Gan.

He also called on Khir to respect the rights of the voters in as it is guaranteed by the federal Constitution.

“The right to vote is a fundamental civil political right of the rakyat as provided under the federal Constitution. Political leaders have no right to blame any voter for exercising his/her civil political right for whichever political divide he/she decides upon,” said Gan.

The myths of Chinese ballots

Indeed, this kind of voice emerges as soon as the by-election is over

Perkasa has stepped in. Its chief Ibrahim Ali said Chinese were ungrateful and ought to be punished.

He felt that since Chinese voters had not supported the BN candidate, the government should stop all the allocation pledges made to the Chinese community in Hulu Selangor.

Ibrahim Ali should take pride in draining away the Chinese votes for BN.

As BN has not drawn a clear line between itself and the Perkasa chief, Chinese ballots are expected to drift away further.

Some more, the once hushed Khir Toyo has found good reasons to lambaste again.

He said since Chinese Malaysians had not reciprocated the prime minister's goodwill, Najib and his government should review their policies and turn their attention to the Malays and Indians who supported the BN, otherwise it would be like "feeding the monkeys in the woods but starving the kids at home."

Huh! Monkeys will grab the bananas and run away. How do we expect them to be thankful? What a magnificent metaphor!

Perhaps we should look at it the other way: The politicos, having finished up the bananas in the woods, get thrown out of the woods by the people bosses, and can only put up a howl outside.

The Pakatan state government will feel very much at ease so long as Khir remains in Selangor!

Yes, the rightists and opportunists in UMNO will try to interpret the by-election outcome in their own unique ways.

And the message from their interpretations goes this way: Since the benefits provided by Najib's new policies and administration have not been reciprocated by the Chinese, perhaps they should forget about Chinese ballots and go for a more racist approach in getting more Malay votes to return to BN.

Over-simplistic brains. Fallacious logic. Extremely dangerous motives.

1. A shift towards racism will not translate into more Malay support. Fundamentally all the conservative Malays have already moved over to BN's side, and such preposterous shift will not win it any more votes. On the contrary, it will invite repulsion from more open-minded Malays and non-Malays.

2. The return of Malay votes shows that Najib's liberal policies have not caused a backlash among Malay voters. Upon this foundation, Najib should adopt even more open and liberal policies to earn the support of all Malaysians.

3. Government policies should by right benefit the people, and all government allocations have been sourced from taxpayers' pockets. Just as the prime minister himself has said, BN is not buying over the people, but helping them.

4. Racism is a dead-end road which will not only spawn political instability, but also batter the national economy. No one will stand to gain in the end.

5. It takes sound political philosophy to run a government, not threats, intimidation or bribery. "1Malaysia" is a kind of philosophy that puts together the common understanding of all Malaysians, and from there we create a progressive and prosperous nation.

6. The government should honour all its pledges, including RM3 million promised to the Rasa Chinese primary school. Besides, the government must also show its sincerity in recognising the certificates of independent Chinese secondary schools as it strives to mould a more democratic, equitable and open society.

Mamakutty tells MCA to drop ‘extremist Chinese’

By Asrul Hadi Abdullah Sani

KUALA LUMPUR, April 29 — Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad today waded into the war of words between the MCA and Perkasa, telling his Barisan Nasional ally to rid itself of “extremist Chinese” before demanding Umno reject the Malay right-wing group.

The Chinese-based party blamed “organisations like Perkasa” for BN’s failure in recapturing the community’s support, especially in last Sunday’s Hulu Selangor by-election, with MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek condemning Perkasa chief Datuk Ibrahim Ali for urging the government not to fulfil election pledges.

However, the former prime minister said Perkasa’s role was important because it ensured BN’s victory in the by-election.

“Maybe because of Perkasa, the Malay community voted for BN. If there is no Perkasa then BN would not have the Chinese or Malay votes,” Dr Mahathir (picture) told reporters after attending a lecture at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel here.

“If MCA wants Umno to distance itself from Perkasa, then MCA must distance themselves with extremist Chinese. Yes, there are lots of extremist Chinese. They even said that there are no people such as Malays,” he added.

In Sunday’s polls, MIC’s P. Kamalanathan secured a 1,725-vote majority win over PKR’s Datuk Zaid Ibrahim but failed to recapture votes from the Chinese community. BN only secured just over 20 per cent of the Chinese votes, down from the 35 per cent it had garnered during Election 2008.

Ibrahim has called the Chinese community “ungrateful” and urged the government to ignore demands made by the MCA and Gerakan as punishment for their failure to attract Chinese voters.

The Pasir Mas MP was criticised by Chinese leaders from both BN and Pakatan Rakyat (PR) for what was described as a racist and insensitive statement.

Kamalanathan has also taken measures to distance himself from the outspoken leader.

Dr Mahathir explained that Perkasa was only defending the interest of the Malay community.

“If you look it is balanced because there are extremist Chinese groups that are saying there are no people such as Malays. This is why we say that racial issues should not be discussed publicly. One person says something and other person must reply. You say the other person is racist but they also say that you are racist.

“I also don’t think Perkasa is driving a wedge between the Barisan Nasional’s component parties because there are others who are saying things which cause Perkasa to reply,” the former Umno president said.

He stressed that while it was important for the government to recapture Chinese support it must not neglect the Malay community.

“Everybody’s support is important. If you have all the Chinese supporting and no Malay support then we will still lose. In this country, we must have everybody’s support,” he said.

Ibrahim, who was a deputy minister in the Mahathir administration, stirred up controversy again today when he asked Chinese voters in Hulu Selangor to repent after they received RM3 million for a school which the prime minister had pledged during the election campaign.

The Malay rights leader also demanded the Chinese voters be “grateful” for the donation and suggested that the Chinese may have been promised more than the Malays of Hulu Selangor.

Can you Mamakutty name the extremist Chinese in MCA ? They even said that there are no people such as Malays,” he added. I thought there are also others who are NOT Chinese saying it ! Are you a Malay in the first place ? Nay You are Mamak ! You are a son of an Indian who migrated from Kerala . Pordah !

Where's your Tanah Melayu ? Mamakutty @ Father of All Malaysian Racists ?


By Michael Chick

Michael Chick goes back to old Arabic maps to find that Tanah Melayu was actually called Barr Chin or Tanah China . So who is the Pendatang?

Even our famous Professor of History does not know this as he only refers to English texts. A shame, isn't it?

The Great Tanah Melayu Debate

We hear UMNO's cries for “Brain Gain”, caused by excruciating “Brain Drain”, in the wake of hundreds of thousands of Malaysians who are fleeing their country. We've heard the many alleged reasons provided from both sides of the fence. One of the strongest seems to be the fact that UMNO is asking all “pendatangs” to leave the country if they are not happy.

By Michael Chick

Well, Robert Kwok certainly did just that
. And along with him, his entire businesses worth billions in “Tax Drain”. BTN has also been copiously assisting, by enthusiastically brainwashing simple minds into thinking that “Tanah Melayu” is reserved for Orang Melayu. Of course, they quickly tell you that anyone can become an Orang Melayu by speaking, dressing, and behaving like one (what! ever that means, who knows?).

Well, UMNO managed to achieve one thing. The BTN-type morons, and their predecessors, have been overwhelmingly successful in brainwashing todays' 27 million citizens. Who says that the Peninsular was ALWAYS called “Tanah Melayu”? This is a recent British Term!! Let me dedicate this Article to the foremost “so-called reknown Historian” of the country. Prof Dr Emeritus Khoo Khay Khim (and anyone else who claims to be as competent in History as well

Prior to “Tanah Melayu” being a British Tag in the 19th century, the peninsular was formerly known as Malacca in the 15th century. The newly-renamed book “Sejarah Melayu” (previously known as “Asal-Usul Raja-Raja”) mentions every other place from India to China , including the tiny-speck-of-dirt called Temasik EXCEPT “Tanah Melayu”. Why was Tanah Melayu NEVER MENTIONED in Sejarah Melayu? Simple!! Because that was not it's name!! !

Tanah Melayu was NEVER the name until the British came and colonized the Peninsular.

(please see map b elow )

Since UMNO has a habit of believing that “whatever is older is better”, let's take a short walk down this slippery slope of history. (Also, BTN-Baru syllabus planners should start taking notes.)

For starters, “Malaya ” in Tagalog means “Peaceful” (go ask your Pinoy maid).

Malai” means “Hill” in Tamil; as in “mini-Himalaya” to describe the Titiwangsa Range on the said Peninsular since the 2nd century by the Gujerati Traders who helped the local Malays set up their formidable Hindu Empire at Lembah Bujang.
ref: Prof Nik Hassan, Tom Harrison, and H.G Quatrich Wales

Also read he re:

Only in the 19th Century was The Peninsular known as “Tanah Melayu”.

In the 15th Century, the Peninsular was known by no other name than “The Malacca Peninsular”.

Before “that Rebel-Indonesian Guy” came over here (look, he wanted to kill his own father; what else do you want me to call Parameswara?), the Peninsular was known as “Barr Kra” in the 10th Century. Before that, the Peninsular was known as the “Golden Chersonese” since the 2nd Century.

“Golden Chersonese is the ancient name to refer to the Malay Peninsula by Claudius Ptolemy or Claudius Ptolemaeus (Greek: ; c. 90 – c.. 168). Known in ! English as Ptolemy, he was a Greek-speaking geographer, astronomer, and astrologer. During Roman times, the Malay Peninsula developed an international reputation as a source of gold; hence the name was given.”

By the way, “Barr” simply means “Land” in the Persian Language. And Barr Kra above, means “ Land of Kra ” (as in reference to the Isthmus of Kra ).

But I've saved the best for last, as usual. And I hope all you soon-to-be “Brain Gain” people are sitting down reading this ....

The earliest
known Arabic Maps refer to the Peninsular as “Barr CHIN”.

Where Chin refers to CHINA ! Why did the Arabs call this Peninsular “Tanah China” instead of “Tanah Melayu”? When Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. spoke about “Exotic Tanah China ”, was he actually refering to Malaya ? After all, according to records, Malayan Gold Mines was already famous 500 years BEFORE the Prophet was born!! As his wife, Khadijah was a Great Trader. He must have known!

Footnote: Chin is spelt “Xin” by the Portuguese, but always pronounced as Chin.

Alright, it's now public!! The oldest known Arab Maps called the Peninsular “Barr Chin”; which translates to “Tanah China ”, or “ Land of Chinese ”. BTN can now implement this
new found knowledge into their syllabus. You cannot deny that you don't know it now! Perhaps if you spoke Hokkien, dressed like a Hokkien, and practised Hokkien Customs, the Hokkiens might be gracious enough to acc! ept you. Sounds absurd? Absolutely; and so does the other “Great Race-Changing Trick” practised by UMNO. And I quote Prof Dr Anthony Milner (ANU), “If it's so easy to join a race, it must be equally easy to 'un-join' that race ...

Alright, Prof Khoo, your turn now ...

This will be the first exercise in “Brain Gain” which UMNO is allegedly proposing, for the greater good of 1Malaysia; plus, I'll even give you a hint: (because I'm nice and assume that you actually really, really, really, don't know ....)

It's a Dark Green Hardcover Book about an inch thick; usually reserved for Academicians like yourself. So you won't find it in Popular, MPH, Wiki, Amazon or any Pasar Malam. I'm sure that Great Historians like yourself, have your own Jstor Account number.

Unfortunately, it's written ! in English, so UMNO people cannot possibly understand it; because, as they say it so eloquently, ...that English sounds like strange babbling ....
So be nice, Prof, and please translate it for them. And in my best Manglish,
Can translate or not? Please?

Me? I'll take a nice stroll over to the Royal Netherlands Institute of Southeast Asian and Caribbean Studies here in Leiden , to read more on this .... I'd better put on a Jacket too, it's a li! ttle nippy today.

Doei!! Pronounced, 'do-we' in Dutch.

Discrimination of Non-Malays in Malaysia Plain racists as PAS said . . .
The Malaysian government should publish statistics showing how much Malays had benefited from the 'special rights' of Malays and at the same time release the statistics which show how minority races are being discriminated against.

Hence, the responsibility lies in the Malaysia government itself to publish unadulterated statistics of racial discrimination.

If the Malaysia government hides the statistics above, then there must be some evil doings, immoral doings, shameful doings and sinful doings, like the Nazis, going on with the non-Malays of Malaysia .

Civilized nations, unlike the evil Nazis, must publish statistics to show its treatment of its minority races. This is what Malaysia must publish.

We are asking for the publication of the statistics showing how 'implementation of special rights of Malays' had inflicted colossal racial discrimination onto non-Malays.

Subject: Dear Mahathir - By Haris Ibrahim.
A most worthwhile read....the last sentence is the clincher of all clinchers

January 29, 2010

Dear Mahathir
Malaysianinsider reports that you had “defended the social contract, the so-called unwritten agreement between the Malays and the non-Malays during independence, by affirming that without the agreement, Malaysia would not have been formed”.
They quoted you : “If there was no social contract, the terms and conditions of allowing citizenship to non-Malays would have not taken place. One million outsiders were given citizenships at the time.”

Now, this quote from you got me curious. Let me tell you why.

I conferred with my aunt, who confirmed that my maternal great grandfather, Eliathamby, of whom I’ve written previously in a posting entitled “The land that my forefathers helped build”, would have left Ceylon and arrived in what is now West Malaysia, around 1870. He died well before the conclusion of that social contract that you spoke of, so my great grandfather would not have come within those ‘one million outsiders’ who acquired citizenship at the time of independence in 1957.
My maternal grandfather, Vellupillay T. Williams, never lived to see the formation of Malaya so he, too, did not make up the ‘one million outsiders’.

Enough of my family tree. Let’s look at yours.
I got this from a blog, Malaysiana :
Perhaps, the most famous Malayalee to land in George Town was Iskandar Kutty, a merchant who married a Johor-Riau wife Siti Hawa Iskandar. They became the proud parents of Alor Star’s top public school Sultan Abdul Hamid College ’s founder-principal and Kedah’s royal educator Datuk Mohamad Iskandar.
Mohamad was the school teacher of Tunku Abdul Rahman.
He and his wife Datin Wan Tempawan Wan Hanafi from the Kedah Bendahara’s (Prime Minister’s) clan, were the proud parents of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad, Malaysia’s Father of Modernisation and fourth Prime Minister.

And this from Malaysia Today :
Born in December 20, 1925, Dr Mahathir hailed from the state of Kedah, at the capital of Alor Star, whose father was a school teacher. His father was Indian who migrated from Kerala, who married a malay lady and sold banana fritters during the second world war. His early education was through vernacular school and at the Sultan Abdul Hamid College in the city.

My question, then, Doc, firstly, is whether your father was amongst the ‘one million outsiders’?
And when did you become ‘Malay’, Doc?
When did you move from being a son of an Indian who migrated from Kerala to a Malay?
Not that I care, but when?

Speaking of Malay, do you remember your “Malay Dilemma”, Doc?
Do you remember what you said about the problem of inbreeding amongst the Malay community, and that whole business of genes? Back then, who had heard of this thing called DNA?

Who had ever imagined that science would one day make it possible for all of us to trace our genealogy?
Guess what, Doc?
It seems, based on all this new DNA scientific knowledge, that there’s no such thing as a Malay race.
It would seem that you’ve gone from being a son of an Indian who migrated from Kerala to a ‘does not exist’.

Just like that!
My cyber buddy, Michael Chick, has written extensively on this matter, in a three-parter in Malaysiakini. HERE, HERE, and HERE .
See what Michael writes in his final part : “The people Malaysians call ‘Malay’, are actually only a tiny sub-component of the much larger Austronesian group. And all Austronesians are the end-product of extensive inter-breeding between the Taiwanese and Dravidic Indians. All this has finally been irrefutably proven by independent DNA testings from world-class faculties”.

I’ve never been very good at all these sciences, Doc, but if you’re any better, and you think Michael’s cocked-up big time in his conclusions, why don’t you take him on?

Damn, I digress.

So when and how did you become Malay, Doc?
Because of the definition of ‘Malay’ in the Federal Constitution, Doc? Article 160 (2)? That right?
So, right up until the last moments before Tunku’s declaration of independence, you were the son of an Indian who migrated from Kerala, and moments later you were magically transformed into a Malay?
And is not the definition of Malay in Article 160(2) stated to be for the limited purpose where the word ‘Malay’ appears in the Constitution?

But really, Doc, I don’t give a toss whether you hold yourself out as Malay or the son of an Indian who migrated from Kerala. Whatever turns you on.

What pisses me off is this Bumi-non Bumi crap.
November 19th, last year, The Star reported on Najib’s balik kampung to Makassar in South Sulawesi . You can read the report HERE.
Courtesy of The Star, Najib is reported to have said : “I feel like I am returning to my roots,” and, when asked to comment on the possibility that some people might view the fact that he had roots here in a negative light, Najib said: “I am not apologetic about it. This is my family history and I am proud of it.”
According to the report, Najib said he was the direct descendant of Bugis royalty who migrated to Pahang in the 18th century.
Well, at least this Malaysian is not ashamed of his roots!

Now, you know that aunt I mentioned earlier?
You know her.
Aunty Rasammah.

I googled her name yesterday and this is what is written of her in Wikipedia.
“Rasammah Bhupalan, also known as Rasammah Naomi Navarednam or Mrs F.R. Bhupalan is a renowned Malaysian freedom fighter and social activist
Born in 1927, she has championed causes such as the anti-drug abuse movement, women’s rights, education and social justice causes.
Rasammah was one of the earliest women involved in the fight for Malaysian (then Malaya ) independence. She joined the Rani of Jhansi Regiment, the women’s wing of the Indian National Army, to fight the British. She served in Burma during World War II.
As founder president of the Women Teacher’s Union , she fought for equal pay for women teachers and tried to bring disparate teachers’ unions under an umbrella.
The former school principal was the first Asian representative of the World Confederation of Organisations of the Teaching Profession for two successive terms. She was also very active in the National Council of Women’s Organisation (NCWO) and Pemadam.
She was a teacher in the Methodist Boys’ School, Kuala Lumpur from 1959 to 1964 and was the principal of the Methodist Girls School , Kuala Lumpur for 13 years from 1970 until she retired in 1982. On 11th November 2007, Mrs.Bhupalan was one of the few veteran teachers who were invited to attend MBSSKL’s 110th Anniversary Celebration Dinner. The dinner was specially organized to honour all the former and current teachers of the school”.

Quite frankly, I think the write-up in Wikipedia does little justice to all that Aunty Rasammah has done for this country. But that is another matter.

More importantly, Doc, why are you, the son of an Indian who migrated from Kerala, and Najib, the descendant of Bugis who migrated from Sulawesi , bumiputra, whilst Aunty Rasammah is not?





Najib snubs Shit Stirrer Perkasa’s demand to punish Chinese voters

Everybody seems to be smiling and happy except Chua . Look at Chua's body language . Deep in thoughts ? a picture tells a thousand words !

By Clara Chooi

PUTRAJAYA, April 28 — Datuk Seri Najib Razak issued a clear warning to all quarters to never dispute Barisan Nasional’s (BN) promises to voters, snubbing the demands by Malay rights group Perkasa’s demands to punish the Chinese who voted for their foes in the Hulu Selangor by-election.

The prime minister also proved that his administration would not allow itself to be held to ransom by the group when he fulfilled one of his primary pledges to the Chinese community of Rasa by giving the promised RM3 to rebuild SRJK (Cina) Rasa at his office here this afternoon.

“I have already made a pledge that all promises that we made in the by-election would be delivered. It is not true that just because the Chinese community did not give us their votes, we would ignore them,” he told those present when presenting the cheque for the school.

The BN had clinched the parliamentary seat during Sunday’s polls but had failed to recapture support from the Chinese community, which form nearly 27 per cent of the 64,500 electorate.

Results from the polls showed that just over 20 per cent of the community had voted for the BN, down from the 35 per cent it had managed to garner during Election 2008.

Perkasa president Datuk Ibrahim Ali was quick to jump on this and had called the community “ungrateful”.

He had also called on the BN government not to fulfill its pledges to the community, earning himself much flak from the Chinese-based parties in the BN like MCA and Gerakan.

That's the way man ! Tell the Shit Stirrer to go fly kite in Kelantan !

About Ibrahim Ali

A very interesting article which I think all Malays and non-Malays should read…Time for challenging people to accept meritocracy and shed the race/religion cards… It doesn’t work anywhere in the world…

By a Malay:

UMNO, the Malay Chamber of Commerce, Perkasa, Ibrahim Ali, and whatnot are shouting, ranting, raving, screaming and hollering about ‘nasib Melayu’ or the plight of the Malays, in particular the Malays of Penang.

I don’t know what Ibrahim Ali was doing back in the mid-1970s but judging from the age of many of those others in the crowd I think many of them tak sunat lagi back in the mid-1970s. Tak sunat lagi means you are so young that you are not circumcised yet and your little dick still has its foreskin.
Yes, back in the mid-1970s -- 35 years or so ago when I was still in my 20s and not even 30 yet -- I was already fighting to improve the lot of the Malays. And 35 years ago those shouting, ranting, raving, screaming and hollering today were either too damn young or were not even born yet.
We realised even back then that if something were not done the Malays would be left out. We realised that unless something were done now, 35 years ago, the Malays would be left behind. So we sat down with various Malay leaders and those who walk in the corridors of power -- the Prime Minister included -- to plan and chart the future of the Malays. And we did this for more than twenty years from the mid-1970s to the mid-1990s before I decided it was a lost cause and that I had better move on to other things.

The problem we faced was as what the then Minister of Trade and Industry Rafidah Aziz said: Melayu mampu daya maju tapi tak mampu daya tahan. This came from the Minister herself and means the Malays can be viable but can’t be sustainable. Malays can achieve success but can’t sustain the success.
The Minister then revealed details and lamented about all the wealth the government gave the Malays in the form of land, concessions, permits, ‘pink slips’ on new stock exchange listings, and whatnot, which, if the Malays had kept, would mean the Malays would have far exceeded the 30% target of the New Economic Policy.
But the Malays did not keep this wealth. The Malays sold it. The land, concessions, permits, ‘pink slips’ on new stock exchange listings, and whatnot, were all sold. So the Malay holding reduced and ended up in the hand of the non-Malays. This was what troubled the government, the Malay leaders, those who walk in the corridors of power, and us in the Malay Chamber of Commerce.

So they now lament about how left behind the Malays in Penang are. They should chart the progression of the Malays in Penang from 224 years ago until today and analyse at what point it went up and went down again. Were the Malays driven out? Were the Malays pushed out? Or did the Malays sell out? And why and how did the Malays sell out?
There is such a thing called the law of supply and demand. There is such a thing called market forces. There is such a thing called willing buyer, willing seller. When there is a demand there will be a seller. And since there was a demand for land in Penang then for sure the landowners would sell. It is all about making a profit.

So Penang developed. It became known as the Pearl of the Orient. So the capitalists moved in, as capitalists always do anywhere in the world where there is money to be made. And the Malays saw the route to easy and quick cash available to them. So they sold their land for a lot of money and moved on to another place where the land was cheaper. Now they could have their cake and could eat it too. They sold their small piece of land in Penang for a lot of money and bought an even bigger piece of land, say in Kedah, for a small amount of money and still had a lot of money left to go to Mekah, send their kids to university, and whatnot.

Today, many of those old folks and landowners of the 1960s and 1970s are dead. They are no longer alive. Their land in Penang had been sold off long before they died. And their children and grandchildren no longer own land in Penang . This is because the old folks had sold it off when they were still young or before they were born.
Today, the Malays are angry because the land in Penang is owned mainly by the non-Malays. But this is so not because the non-Malays stole the land but because the Malays sold it for a lot of money. It is what any property owner would do when the property they bought for RM100 two world wars ago can now fetch RM500,000 on the open market. Only a fool would turn down RM500,000 in profit.
The more the Malays scream about being left behind in Penang the more the Malays would look stupid and would be revealing their weaknesses. Back in the 1970s the government already sighed and lamented that come the year 2000, the Malays would still be left with nothing.

We can help the Malays, the government said. We can do what you want us to do. But if the Malays just sell off whatever we give them, then come 2000 the Malays would still end up with nothing. And then the Malays would turn round and blame the government. The Malays would say the government does not care about them. They will never admit that the government did so much for the Malays but the Malays chose quick cash instead of sustaining and maintaining for the long term what the government gave them.

Say what you like about Rafidah Aziz and those many of the 1970s and 1980s era. They did try and they tried very hard. I should know because I was part of it. But we all knew that it was a futile effort. We can try to help the Malays to get rich. But they will not stay rich. They will sell all for quick cash and then will become poor again. And then they will blame the government because they are poor.

This was anticipated 35 years ago back in the 1970s. And the government told us this would happen. But we still tried. And now it is proven that the government was right, 35 years ago.

Today, Pakatan Rakyat is ruling Penang . But Penang was founded 224 years ago back in 1786. Tomorrow, Pakatan Rakyat would have ruled Penang for exactly two years. For 222 years before that it was not Pakatan Rakyat that was ruling Penang . But Pakatan Rakyat is being blamed for 224 years of Penang history.

Yes, Perkasa, the new ‘Malay rights’ movement headed by Ibrahim Ali. Ask Ibrahim Ali how much the government gave him since the 1980s. In the 1970s when I was already fighting for the Malays he was still a student. Ask Ibrahim Ali to total up everything the government gave him the last 30 years or so. That figure should come to at least RM200 million-RM300 million.

How much does Ibrahim Ali still have left? Can he even find RM1 million in his bank account? Where did all that hundreds of millions go? Yes, ask Ibrahim Ali to ask himself all these questions. Then he will understand what happened to the Malays. What happened to the Malays is exactly what happened to him. He sold off everything and spent all the money just like those other Malays. And now he blames the Chinese because he is broke.

MCA blast Perkasa Shit Shit Shit I-Bra him for loss of Chinese support

By Clara Chooi

KUALA LUMPUR, April 27 — The MCA has blamed “organisations like Perkasa” for Barisan Nasional’s failure in recapturing Chinese support, especially in the recent Hulu Selangor by-election.

In a press statement today, party president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek (picture) condemned Perkasa chief Datuk Ibrahim Ali’s statement urging the government not to fulfil its pledges of development to the Chinese community.

“I wish to condemn in the strongest terms the statement by the Perkasa chief for asking the government to delay the development allocations to the Chinese community.

“I wish to stress that government money belongs to the people. It should be used for the local community for local development,” Dr Chua said.

In Sunday’s polls, BN’s P. Kamalanathan secured a 1,725-vote majority win over PKR’s Datuk Zaid Ibrahim but failed to recapture votes from the Chinese community.

The BN only secured fewer than 30 per cent of the Chinese votes, down from the 35 per cent it had garnered during Election 2008.

Ibrahim, the Pasir Mas MP, had capitalised on this and had called the Chinese community “ungrateful.”

He urged the BN government not to fulfil its promises to them.

Ibrahim had also called on the government to ignore demands made by the MCA and Gerakan as punishment for their failure to attract Chinese voters.

Dr Chua said that the Chinese voters of Hulu Selangor should not be punished for their failure to choose the BN in the election.

The MCA president noted that he had already discussed the matter with Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak and the latter had given an assurance that he would not take heed of Ibrahim’s demands.

“Najib has given his assurance that the BN will fulfil its pledges of development to the voters of Hulu Selangor. The BN does not renege on its promises,” he claimed.

Dr Chua lambasted Ibrahim for his statement and said that it was organisations like Perkasa that made it difficult for the MCA to get Chinese support for the BN.

“Malaysia will not be able to progress if we continue to have people like Ibrahim Ali who professes to champion along racial lines with disregard to the sensitivity of other communities in the country,” he said.

He added that all politicians should be reminded not to utter remarks that touch on the fabric of culture, religion and race for such actions were contrary to the prime minister’s 1 Malaysia platform.

This is the second time the MCA has been at loggerheads with the Malay rights group, which has the backing of many Umno members and some of its leaders.

When contacted by The Malaysian Insider, Dr Chua said: “Who is Perkasa anyway? They are just an NGO.”

He also blamed the negative campaigning employed by some of the more right-wing members of Umno, many of them Perkasa supporters, for the loss of Chinese support for BN.

Dr Chua claimed that Zaid had only gained further popularity with the Chinese voters when BN attempted to use his drinking past and purported gambling habits to discredit him.

“Zaid is known as a liberal Malay leader. He is popular, especially among the younger generation of voters compared to Kamalanathan, who is just a new leader.

“The attempt to blacken his image with the gambling and drinking allegations would not work in the Chinese community because they do not view these things negatively. In fact, they can better identify with him,” he said.

Meanwhile, Gerakan vice-president Datuk Chang Ko Youn said Ibrahim’s statement was “irresponsible” and accused the independent MP of failing to take cognisance of the reason why the Chinese community had abandoned the BN.

“He should stop making extremist statements and stop trying to alienate the MCA and Gerakan in the BN,” he said.

That Racist is part of the problem . But the biggest problem is YOU , yourself , no need for me to keep repeating in , everyone in Malaysia knows . Even the top BN leadership is ashamed to be seated with you . Just look at Najib's body language when you are with him ! But then who cares what that idiot I Bra-him , the foul , stinking asshole says ? We Chinese are not beggars , but we Chinese are the major or biggest contributions to the govt coffers by way of income taxes . You want to belittle the Chinese , you'll get what you started .

Heard this song " They have only themselves to blame " by Gilbert O'Sullivan .

Ong Tee Keat cleared of RM10mil allegation, says MACC

KUALA LUMPUR: Transport Minister Datuk Seri Ong Tee Keat has been cleared of the allegation that he received RM10mil for MCA activities from Kuala Dimensi Sdn Bhd chief executive officer Datuk Seri Tiong King Sing.

Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission Deputy Chief Commissioner Datuk Mohd Shukri Abdull said investigation papers forwarded to the Deputy Public Prosecutor were returned to the commission with instructions to close the case.

“They (DPP) said there was no case against him (Ong),’’ Mohd Shukri said declining to elaborate.

Ong meanwhile, said he received a letter from MACC on Apr 22 clearing him of the allegation.

“In the letter, the MACC informed me that they had concluded investigations and found no evidence to confirm the allegations.

“I was also told that no further investigation would be made into the matter.

“I am thankful this has been cleared. The allegations hurled against me, especially during the party elections has now subsided and the real scenario is now out in the open and is clear, eventhough I received the letter a tad too late,” he told a press conference.

Ong said that eventhough he had received the letter earlier, he did not use the “good news as a political capital” during the Hulu Selangor by-election.

“In fact, I had forgotten about the letter until I was asked about the court case,” he said, referring to his application to stop Tiong, who is also Bintulu MP, from publishing malicious comments.

Ong claimed he was informed that MACC had concluded investigation into the case earlier but for “some unknown reasons” he was only told about it a few days ago.

Moving the Chinese ground


Hot button issues and prevailing national sentiments influenced the way the Chinese voted in the Hulu Selangor by-election.

THERE was a feel-good mood in the Barisan Nasional camp on Sunday.

Winning back the Hulu Selangor seat had given the Barisan team a great psychological boost. It had been a hard-fought contest and it was also the third Barisan win in 10 by-elections.

At the same time, there was also a degree of frustration amid the upbeat mood because the Chinese vote had not moved to Barisan. Only about 20% of those in Chinese-majority areas had helped Barisan’s P. Kamalanathan to win.

“We can’t deny it. The Chinese ground has not shifted since the 2008 general election,” said Datuk Seri Dr Fong Chan Onn, who heads the MCA think-tank Insap.

Things could have been worse. The reading shortly after nomination day was that up to 85% of the Chinese would support PKR’s Datuk Zaid Ibrahim.

MCA leaders readily admit that Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s decision to go down and make his presence felt in a number of Chinese new villages in the constituency had an effect.

“The Prime Minister put his prestige on the line. He helped stem the flood,” said Dr Fong.

Umno politicians have been asking why MCA has been unable to do its part in delivering the Chinese vote. They are puzzled that the Chinese could not be moved by the Government’s promise of a RM3mil grant for the Chinese school there.

One Umno politician had asked rather rhetorically: “What more do the Chinese want?”

“What many Umno politicians fail to understand is that many issues that upset the Chinese have more to do with Umno than with MCA,” said Sin Chew executive director Rita Sim.

For instance, Datuk Noh Omar’s foot-in-the-mouth remark that non-Malays should be grateful they were granted citizenship was appalling and ill-timed.

The Selangor Umno deputy chief quickly apologised but the damage was done. DAP went to town with it, stringing up banners of him in the Chinese new villages.

There were other current issues affecting the Chinese mood in Hulu Selangor. One is the lingering spill-over from the Barisan takeover of Perak.

“It was close to home, just next door,” said Sim.

A person of your caliber with a Phd and heading INSAP still can't get the right picture . I have not heard you mention one word about a tainted MCA president . Don't you think that the Chinese are all fools , that they have no pride . How would a Chinese face the people when their party is led by a man whose dick has been exposed for all to see ?

It is prosposterous that both Fong and Sim have both not mentioned a single word about this major factor . If its not just the Chinese , then what about the 8000 MCA members that the tainted president promised that he would deliver the 8000 votes for the BN ? If you cannot deliver the 8000 votes what is there to talk about the rest of the Chinese ? It just means the 8000 MCA members have rejected you as their leader , and our Dr Fong and Sim who was once from INSAP failed to see that point . Just like way back in 308 where the Chinese and MCA members rejected Ong Ka Ting and his candidates thus providing the opposition with a tsunami .
