Najib's Rohingya Card



What can we make of Najib’s presence and participation in the PAS organised demonstration against the Myanmar government’s treatment of the Rohingyas? We heard him roar: do these people think I will sleep? I will defend them not only because they are fellow Muslims but are also human beings. Wow, I said. Najib is a good Muslim, good democrat and a good humanitarian. He is the embodiment of his wasathiyah ideology.
The Muslim is the standard of measure: he upholds justice, he is fair, sets a good example, he is balanced, never extreme and others look up to to him for adjudication because the good Muslim knows he is judged by his God and Prophet.
He is none of that. At home he pummels the opposition; imprisons a lady, arrests opposition leaders. He masterminded the embezzlement of billions through 1MDB. He lies to the people. Every spending his government does is done at inflated costs. The economy has bombed, capital flight is increasing, the value of the Ringgit has plunged, our reserves are used up. The country is in a mess- Najib is the architect who divides up the nation along ethnic lines. He has already said it- the next election will be a Malay versus Chinese election.
Najib can never be an example of a good Muslim on the terms of the wasathiyah concept. He is extravagant which runs counter to the proposed example of being thrifty and careful with spending. He advises others to be careful with money, he can’t even control the shopaholic wrecking machine.  
Meanwhile, when he was boasting about his empathy for the Rohignyas, hopefully his drool did not rain on anyone near at that time.
Up to that point I think Malays picture the rohingyas as people who go around selling gemstones, begging at mosque entrances or just stop you on the road, knocking at your car windows asking for money. They are human beings after all huh?
Rather than play along with Hadi, Najib Najib could have given the Rohingyas refugee status. They couldn’t care less to be present at the gathering as told . They were interested in immediate relief. The beggars must have there too expecting some money to be handed out.
Najib did not waste the opportunity to make an impression on Hj Hadi. After all they spent some tete-a-tetes  secretly. Its time to openly show everyone in Malaysia, how deep they are. It is good for the Malay/Muslim temperament. It is the wet dream of many Malays. He was seen, almost appearing as if calculated to be photographed by strategically positioned cameramen with smart phones and cameras, touching the arm of Haji Hadi. It seemed a romantic picture.
Haji Hadi was later feted like a royalty, making him to appear as the most important person in the PM’s life( after Rosmah of course)
But Najib’s action was questionable. He is PM of this country. This was clearly conduct unbecoming. A PM who is leader of the country participating in a demonstration against a country, a sovereign nation, with which we have diplomatic relations. The question immediately asked, if he is the chief executive of this country, why can’t he do something through the diplomatic channels? Like calling up the ambassador to register Malaysia’s very principled remonstrations about what is happening to the Rohingyas. He can ask our foreign minister to call up the Myanmar ambassador. Or he can ask our ambassador in Yangon to deliver an official Malaysian point of interest or whatever they called it in diplomaticspeake.
Or he can back up his good Muslim, good democrat and good humanitarian self image with more testicular resolve and cut off diplomatic relations with Myanmar.
He does not do all those options available to the PM of a country. Instead he chose to go along with a protest organised by an opposition party. He is cultivating PAS.Indonesian President Jokowi appears smarter and wiser when he chose to discuss the Rohingya issue with Kofi Anan who is appointed to deal with the Rohingya issue by the UN.
The answers are obvious. First, this will be an issue that can arrest the utter dismay and abhorrence of the Malays on his person. He hasn’t come clean with the corruption issue he is facing. 1MDB remains unanswered which only serves to fuel intense revulsion towards the PM.
I hope not a few people missed reading what the Myanmar Times wrote in immediate response to Najib’s pompous religiosity. The Myanmar Times responded with a very had hitting editorial describing the agony Malaysians must be experiencing now as living under the tawdry and sinking regime of PM Najib razak .  it must be like experiencing death by treacle.
The Rohingya assembly which Najib and Hadi came together was described as Najib’s and UMNO’s and PAS action as drowning themselves in a gluey black sea of venality not seen since the days of Marcos.
Najib was doing the classic diversionary tactic to hide the mounting litany of shame. Najib thinks by showing he is someone who is willing to stand up against tyranny, his other worldly sins are forgiven. Maybe Hadi can offer payers to God to forgive Najib. For Najib is a good Muslim, demonstrating support and empathy to fellow Muslims.
Najib is supported by a media that is quickly being ignored because it is fighting against facts with conjectures and makeup stories.
The wife of the Good Muslim is not spared either. Rosmah is described as a shopaholic wrecking ball.
What is Najib to do? Najib’s survival strategy is to mount up Malay chauvinism and marginalise other Malaysians. He finds a convenient instrument in Islam. That is why is is cultivating PAS. As to sidelining non Malay citizens, he has already done that by instructing the Elections Commission to resettle voters along racial lines.
Like all dictators, his solution to all his problems is to amass more power and to apply draconian laws on the opposition. The archaic Sedition Act which he had earlier promised to remove is now enforced more vigorously. Which only goes to show that this PM is running scared. Thus he is grotesquely hypocritical, mouthing what the audience wants to hear, but violates every democratic principles to stay in power.

The Moral Duty of all Malaysians- save this country from Kleptocracy



Najib has perfected the art of running with the hare while hunting with the dogs. He has shown this aspect of his personality while participating in the demonstration organised by PAS to protest against the Myanmar government. Immediately after that, he dispatched the Arm Forces Chief to make amends with the military rulers of Myanmar.
We can guess what the general said on behalf of Najib- don’t take it hard your Excellency, its only politics. Our PM is anxious to cultivate the goodwill of these PAS people. We are not really interested to know about the Rohingyas. We are only interested to show PAS we are on the same page with them on this issue. 
Of course the Malaysian government thinks the staff at the Myanmar Embassy do nothing but enjoy their sojourn in Malaysia, going to karaoke sessions,  do embassy balls and so on. They probably know more about Najib and UMNO than our citizens. The Myanmar leaders will probably nod their heads out of courtesy but have already readied some diplomatic reprisals.
Why did Najib go along with PAS at stadium Titiwagsa? We will try to offer reasons later.
It is a duty of everyone to speak against injustice. Malaysians as a whole has suffered injustice at the hands of Najib government. The secret of a good government is having good men/women running in it. People with a sense of public duty, wanting to do the best for the public, disciplined, dedicated and resolute. With good people running it, even a lousy system of governing is improved. With bad people, a bad system of government becomes worse. 
Even if we have good people running the government, we still need check and balance. This is provided for by civic minded and public spirited people. 
The problem is when bad people run the government. Then, many bad things are carried out- bad policies, policies that favour the powerful and the rich, government becomes repressive, predatory and so on. Unchecked, it becomes an instrument for oppression, injustice and an instrument of tyranny by the select few on all of us. Worse, if you have a thief as leader of the government. Members of the cabinet also become thieves as well as those who execute policies of the government. It then becomes a kleptocracy- a government of thieves, by thieves and for thieves.
Will the government self-correct itself? The religious fascists who don’t have an inkling of how to run a temporal government, believe this government can self-correct. So people like Nik Abduh, Tantawi, Haji Hadi and some muftis, argue that it is sinful to overthrow an existing government. This is blasphemous because it implies that once a government is installed, it cant be removed. As long as they dont violate fundamental Islamic laws, Muslims must support them even if they are despotic and dictatorial. So, they say, it is forbidden to replace Najib. It is sinful to do so.
This is a brutally undemocratic. Religion is used to support a totalitarian government. If replacing Najb is sinful for Muslims because it is forbidden to overthrow a government, then it ought to be equally sinful to overthrow the governments of Selangor and Penang. On that principle, the Kelantan government led by PAS is also untouchable. The public must endure the governments even if they are led by corrupt, incompetent and bad leaders.  
It cannot be so. Support and loyalty for the government, must be a qualified support. Furthermore, IF it is forbidden to overthrow a government which we elect in the first place, then election of a government must be equally forbidden and sinful. If you can elect, you can deselect.
This government cannot self correct itself because it is run by bad people . It is impossible when private interests overwhelmed public interest. The most practical solution is for the people to replace the government. The only way of replacing the government through peaceful means, is by voting them out.
It is almost criminal for religious fascists to insist continuing support for such a government. They tell us, as long as the leaders of this government have not breached fundamental religious principles, including perhaps renouncing Islam, or doing policies that violate religious principles, the government, even if led by a tyrant, dictator must be supported.
Only people who uphold totalitarian thoughts would support such propositions since their operating principles are having concentration of powers and the ability to execute repressive and undemocratic laws and regulations.
Government has become a tool for self enrichment for Najib and his gang. Government has been used as an instrument to bully people into submission. Instruments of government have become means to suppress and intimidate people. The Police are used to repress dissent and arrest people who disagree with Najib. GLcs are milked for political funds.
Corruption is rampant. Every government spending is an excuse to siphon money from the budget allocations. Every project by the government is carried out at inflated costs. Projects are given to bidders who are willing to contribute and donate to decision makers. It is rumoured for example, the high speed rail project to Singapore, which is yet to be signed, will be given to the China firm which was willing to add RM5 billion to the cost. The East Coast Railway Line will cost Malaysians up from RM55 billion. The Company building it says the cost is around RM46 billion.  
Najib has violated the cardinal principle of accountability. Billions are missing from 1MDB. Even if every single sen is replaced, that action will not erase the breach of trust, illegal spiriting of billions into private accounts, authorising the illegal transfer of funds and receiving stolen money. The crime remains unerased.
This is clearly a case of a bad person leading a government. We all know that the secret of a good government is having good men running it. We have bad men running the government and this only leads to a bad government. A bad government does injustice and is ferocious on the people.
We therefore have a moral duty to stand up against the Najib government.

Bohong Besar UMNO-bahagian 2



Ada sebahagian dari kita tidak suka keburukan yang dilakukan oleh sebahagian dari kita yang lain, di pidatokan dan diucapkan dikhalayak ramai. Pendirian mereka kita hormati dan kita tidak ada masaalah dengan sikap yang demikian.  Tapi kepada sebahagian dari kita, kita mesti jadi jurucakap kepada mereka yang diperlakukan secara tidak adil, jadi mangsa kebuasan dan yang tidak bersuara. 
Pendirian dan pemilihan demikian, juga harus dihormati. 
Kita berpegang kepada prinsip keburukan tidak harus diceritakan secara awam, kecuali bila ketidakadilan, kebuasan dan kezaliman sudah dilakukan. Ini perkara2 yang mesti diperdengarkan kepada seluruh rakyat. Lihat Al Quran 4: 148.
Kemungkaran oleh pemimpin, terutamanya, mesti dedahkan secara public kerana perbuatan nya menganiayai 30juta rakyat Malaysia.
Prinsip ini menerangkan mengapa kita menulis, kita berceramah, kita menyusun diri kita dalam pertubuhan, parti politik dan gerakan menentang UMNO. Prinsip ini menerangkan mengapa kita mendedahkan keburukan kerajaan. Kita bukan suka2 mahu menjadikan mereka tidak gembira.
Sebab nya satu sahaja. Kita tahu dan sedar, bahawa perjuangan untuk keadilan mesti dilakukan ulang berulang. Apa yang Najib sebut dalam perhimpunan agung UMNO 2016 baru2 ini mengesahkan bahawa kita tidak boleh alpa dan lalai. Kuasa2 zalim dan kebuasan pemerintah menjadi jadi jika tidak ada golongan yang bangun menentang.
Jadi, jawapan nya, bukan kita suka kondem pemerintah secara buta2. Kita memilih untuk berada disebelah pihak yang tertindas, yang dianiayai, yang tidak ada suara untuk bercakap dan yang tidak berani melakukan kerja ini. Sebahagian besar dari kita yang melakukan ini, tidak dibayar, kita menghabiskan waktu, tenaga dan harta benda.
Pertama, kita percaya bahawa tanggung jawab kita ialah mendedahkan kepalsuan . kita tidak tutup kebenaran dengan kepalsuan. Lihat al Quran 2:42. Sayang sekali kebenaran menjadi mangsa kebuasan UMNO. Tidak ada orang mahu bercakap mengenai pimpinan buruk Najib. Isiu 1MDB dilenyapkan dan jadikan suatu kebiasaaan. Hancurlah bangsa Melayu bila menjadikan kemungkaran dan keburukan itu suatu kebiasaan.
Apa yang Najib dan UMNO lakukan ialah menjadi fitnah keatas bangsa Melayu. Bangsa Melayu dilihat sebagai kaum yang suka mencuri, menindas orang lain, suka menipu, suka rasuah. Bangsa Melayu membelakangkan kebenaran dan amar makruf; bangsa Melayu menyokong pencurian,; bangsa Melayu bersubahat melakukan kejahatan. Ini semua fitnah keatas bangsa Melayu dan ia dilakukan oleh Najib dan UMNO.
Kita mesti melawan mereka sehingga tidak ada lagi fitnah, tidak ada kebuasan dan ini dilakukan kerana kita mahukan keadilan. Lihat Al Quran 2:193. Mereka yang melakukan penindasan mesti dilawan sampai keakar umbi. Penentangan keats kezaliman adalah perjuangan yang berterusan.
Al-Quran menyebut perihal mesti ada suatu golongan yang bangun menyerukan makruf dan menolak kemungkaran. Al Quran 3:104.
Al Quran juga menyebut, jikalah tidak ada suatu golongan menyekat suatu golongan yang lain dari melakukan kemungkaran, maka hancur muka bumi ini.
Kita tahu mainan Najib. Namun ada sebahagian dari kita ini terpegun dan terpukau apabila mendengar orang macam Najib bercerita mengenai hal2 dunia in, kadang2 berpura bersumpah atas nama Allah,  sedangkan Najib mempunyai hati yang busuk. Apabila dia membelakangi kita, yang dia lakukan ialah memusnahkan apa yang kita bentuk selama ini.  Al Quran 2:204-205.
Najib akan cuba mencipta isu2 memesong perhatian rakyat dari musibah yang dia lakukan. Dia juga akan menunjukkan dia menjuarai dan menwirai sesuatu perkara yang mahu diperjuangkan- seperti membela bangsa Melayu dari ancaman kaum Cina. Inilah pembohongan yang besar. Bagaimana cina menjadi ancaman kepada orang Melayu sedangkan, sejak kita merdeka yang menjadi kerajaan Federal dan memegang kuasa yang besar ialah UMNO? Sedangkan kaum Cina dan India adalah warga negara Malaysia. 
Apa jenis PM yang kita ada yang melaga lagakan suatu kaum dengan kaun yang lain?Jawapan nya ialah PM yang tidak meletakkan Malaysia dipuncak keutamaan. Bahkan keutamaan dan priority Najib ialah memelihara dirinya sendiri.
Tidak cukup kah segala kaedah perlindungan yang ada dalam tangan orang Melayu- struktur agihan kuasa, perlembagaan, demografi, institusi Raja Melayu?  Ancaman yang disebut oleh Najib ialah imajinasi dalam kepala dan kegunaan nya ialah menakutkan orang Melayu.
Bagaimana orang Cina atau DAP boleh menembusi struktur agihan kuasa ini? Dari Raja2 Melayu sampai kepada pimpinan akar umbi – JKKK dan j/kuasa surau dan masjid, pimpinan belia dan lain2 lagi, semua dikuasai oleh Melayu? Demografi adalah destini. Menjelang 2030, orang Melayu merupaka 80% penduduk Negara ini. Mustahil, yang 20% mempunyai lebih banyak kerusi parlimen dari 80%. Perlembagaan Malaysia sudah ada peruntukan2 untuk melindungi orang Melayu dan kita ada institusi dan legitimate forces of coercion untuk memastikan ianya demikian. Kita ada institusi kepolisian, ketenteraan dan kehakiman yang bersedia menjaga keududukan orang Melayu. Akhir sekali kita ada insitusi Raja2 Melayu yang menjaga kepentingan Melayu sebab mereka itu Melayulah jua. Kecuali ada Raja Melayu yang mahukan Cina jadi PM dan ketua negara, kepimpinan negara ini tetap dalam tangan orang Melayu.
Hanya nya, jangan lah kita sangka bahawa menjadi Melayu itu mestilah jadi UMNO juga. Bukan sedikit orang Melayu yang enggan melanggani cara UMNO melakukan kerja.

Bohong Besar dari UMNO-Bahagian 1



Hari semalam DAP mengadakan congress nasionalnya. DAP sekarang sudah berumur 50 tahun. Ia sebuah parti yang sahih dan sah disisi undang2 Malaysia. Ia tertubuh pada tahun 1966.
Dr Mahathir pun turut hadhir bersama dengan Mat Sabu dan Wan Azizah. Dr Mahathir mengalami congress secara lansung. Kesemua prosiding congress, seperti yang sudah2, dijalankan dalam bahasa Malaysia. Lagu DAP juga dalam bahasa Malaysia. Perbahasan oleh semua wakil ialah dalam Bahasa Malaysia. Yang berbahas ialah semua bangsa- Melayu, Cina, India, Sarawak dan Sabah. Semua dalam bahasa Malaysia.
DAP lebih baik dari MCA yang hipokrit besar dan lebih baik dari MIC yang perasan sahaja mereka mewakili kaum India.MCA sudah lama hilang kedudukan mewakili kaum Cina.MCA hanya tong kosong. Ianya berguruh sahaja, hujan nya tiada.
Parti MCA dan MIC adalah uncle toms kepada UMNO yang menjalankan politik Jim Crow nya. MCA dan MIC adalah pembodek yang tunduk layu kepada dasar2 UMNO yang rasis. Mereka tunduk kulai kepada kemahuan UMNO yang tidak adil. Apalagi mereka membisu terhadap rasuah dan kebuasan pemimpin UMNO.
DAP berkongress sehari setelah umno mengadakan PAU nya. Tarikh itu ada kebaikan nya. Ia memberi peluang untuk DAP menjawab semua bohong dan dusta dari najib.
jika kerajaan selain UMNO diujudkan nasib orang Melayu parah. Jika DAP mengetuai kerajaan baru, maka institusi seperti Felda, Felcara, Mara, Tabung Haji dan institusi2 lain yang menjaga kepentingan orang Melayu akan dihapuskan. Jika DAP mengetuai kerajaan, maka peruntukan2 dalam perlembagaan Malaysia seperti hak istimewa orang Melayu, system beraja, kedudukan Islam dan kedudukan bahasa Melayu akan terancam dan mungkin dihapuskan. kerusi jawatan PM pun, akan diambil alih oleh Kit Siang.
Demikian bohong dan dusta dari UMNO dan pemimpin nya. 
Najib dan UMNO lupa, mungkin Melayu yang bodoh ialah Melayu UMNO sahaja. Melayu yang lain, yang selain 3.2 juta ahli UMNO itu sudah celik dan bukan buta huruf politik lagi. Kita akan jawab satu persatu dan sementara itu, kita harap orang Melayu jangan hysteria mendengar dusta besar dari UMNO dan pembohong nombor wahid Malaysia, Najib Tun Razak.
Demografi adalah destini.
Golongan Cina hanya 24% dari penduduk Malaysia manakala orang Melayu jati ialah 55% dan bumiputera lain 10%. Menjelang 2030, Cina hanya 15%, dan Melayu jati mencecah 75% atau 80%. Dalam senario demikian, bolehkah orang Cina jadi PM dan ketua negara ini? 
Fakta nya ialah, Malaysia negara dimana orang Melayu dominen. Demografi ialah masa depan atau destini. Ketua Malaysia ialah Melayu. Sesiapa sahaja orang Melayu, dari parti mana pun, boleh jadi PM. Hari ini, pendirian rasmi DAP ialah menyokong Anwar Ibrahim jadi PM. Anwar Ibrahim ialah orang Melayu.
Agihan kerusi parlimen didominasi Melayu.
Paling kuat, DAP akan bertanding 50 kerusi parlimen. Jika mereka menang semua, tidak mampu jadi kerajaan kerana memerlukan 112 kerusi paling minima ertinya; DAP kena berkerja sama dengan parti2 Melayu yang lain.
Tapi kita DAP lebih faham prinsip bermuafakat. Kita bermuakafat untuk mengerjakan kebaikan, menolak kemungkaran dan meningkatkan takut kepada Tuhan. Jika kita takut kepada Tuhan, kita tidak curi duit rakyat. Kita tidak rompak duit rakyat.
Fakta2 ini semua tidak mampu dihitung oleh Najib. Bagaimaana dia pandai berkira jika dia mengatakan 26-9=15?

Jadi kenapa Najib berbohong dan berdusta? Kerana bohong dan dusta sebahagan dari DNA keturunan lanun Bugis ini. Yang demikian, kita tidak hairan ianya datang dari Najib, kerana berbohong dan tidak bercaka benar itu adalah keperangaian kedua Najib. Bukan kah Najib yang menafikan dia menerima wang dalam akaun nya? Setelah tidak lagi boleh menafikan, para juak nya merekakarya cerita yang membodohkan rakyat. Dari penafian timbul cubaan mempertikai kemunasabahan- mustahil orang menyimpan wang curi  atau derma dalam akaun sendiri. Hanya orang bodoh sahaja yang menyimpan wang curi atau yang diderma dalam akaun peribadi.  Tapi Najib melakukan nya dan ini membuktikan Najib seorang yang bodoh.
Kemudian ternyata Najib bodoh lagi sombong. Dia ingat kerana dia presiden UMNO, PM dan menteri kewangan, dia ada kuasa mutlak dan boleh beraja dihati dan bertakhta dimata. Jadi Raja UMNO bolehlah. Jangan hendak jadi raja bangsa Melayu.
Najib ialah pembohong bersiri, sehingga hari ini, masih tidak mahu mengakui bahawa dia MO1. Cubaan mempertikai sisatan dan lapuran DOJ, telah pun ditangkis oleh Jabatan Kedila Aeriak.  UMNO mengedarkan pamphlet mempertikai siasatan DOJ. Yang mengeluarkan nya ialah UMNO- tentulah mereka akan berdolak dalih dan mempertahankan benang basah nya.
Inilah kes- sekali gali lubang, kena gali lubang lain untuk mengambus lubang asal. Ertinya, Najib hanya mampu berbohong atas bohong asal nya; DOJ bersedia mempertahankan kesasihan lapuran nya. Melayu yang mahu percaya bohong Najib hanyalah Melayu UMNO.
Orang Melayu UMNO sudah tidak ada nilai2 moral dalam diri , yakni2 nilai2 yang membezakan antara kemungkaran dan kebaikan.  Jika yang asas ini sudah dibuang oleh pimpinan UMNO, jika bangsa Melayu berketuakan mereka, masa depan Melayu sungguh kelam.
Bangsa Melayu berada dalam keruntuhan dan keruntuhan itu disebabkan oleh UMNO Najib dan pemimpin bangsa Melayu yang berkompromi nilai2 moral mereka. Kita tahu bangsa melayu dalam keruntuhn bila duit mengalir kepada mereka yang menjaja pengaruh dan kuasa;kita tahu bangsa Melayu runtuh bila yang kaya ialah mereka yang rasuah, kita tahu bangsa melayu runtuh apabila undang2 gagal melindungi kita dari kebuasan pemimpin Melayu dan kita tahu melayu rosak apabila rasuah dan rompakan di muliakan dan kejujuran dan amanah dipersendakan. orang Melayu runtuh apabila untuk membangunkan hidup , mereka mesti mendapatkan kebenaran dari mereka yang ada kuasa.
Orang Melayu runtuh selagi beketuakan Najib.  Orang Melayu runtuh agama mereka, jika untuk menjadi Muslim yang baik, mesti mendapat certification dari orang2 seperti Haji Hadi, Mokhtar ‘Fikah’ Senik dan Nashruddin Tontowi. Islam orang Melayu terancam dari geng-hendak jadi Taliban.
Maka nya berbohong mengenai DAP tiada menjadi hal kepada sipembohong. Siakap senohong gelama ikan duri. Bercakap bohong lama2 mencuri. Sudah pun terbukti dalam diri Najib. berbohong sudah, mencuri pun sudah.
