TOTAL VISITORS FROM 2008:

THE ISLAMIC STATE 39

1. Suddenly, out of the blue almost there appeared in the Middle East a powerful force seemingly moved by a desire to set up an Islamic state, a Caliphate no less.

2. And this force has been amazingly successful. They have literally conquered swathes of Iraq and have set up a Government. They are set to advance further and the Iraqi forces have not really been able to stop them.

3. Where did they come from? Just like the Taliban they were created by the United States of America.

4. The Americans fear the rise of the Shiites, the Islamic sect that is most against the West.

5. After more than 10 years of the occupation of Iraq the Americans realised they could not stay there any longer. When they left they persuaded the majority Iraqi Shiites to form a bipartisan Government with the minority Sunni.

6. But the Shiites decided to deprive the Sunni of a role in the Government. The Sunni Vice-President was accused of plotting against the Government and he had to escape to Turkey to avoid arrest and possible execution or assassination by the Iraqi Government. And so Iraq which was once ruled by Saddam Hussein, a Sunni became a Shiite State.

7. Then came the uprisings in Syria to overthrow Bashar Assad, a Shiite. America had always wanted to replace Bashar’s Shiite Government with a Sunni Government. With Iraq and Iran under Shiite rule, a Shiite Government in Syria would tilt the balance in the Middle East in favour of the Shiite – the most violent enemy of the American.

8. And so when the attempt was made to overthrow Bashar’s Government, the Americans saw an opportunity to replace Bashar with a Sunni Government.

9. To ensure this would be the result of the civil war in Syria, America provided military aid and money to the Sunni rebels in Syria to ensure their overthrow of Bashar.

10. Many of the Sunni fighters were fanatically against the Shiite. They readily accept United States aid and then decided to cross from Syria into Iraq to overthrow the Shiite Government there. They envision a new Sunni Caliphate to rule over Sham, the territory which was divided by the British and the French into Iraq, Syria, Lebanon and Palestine.

11. If the Sunnis succeed in their Islamic state it would endanger Israel and American interest in the region. Suddenly the United States find that overthrowing Bashar is not such a good idea.

12. Instead the United States should ally with Syria to fight against the jihadists from Europe now flocking to join the Sunni Islamic State forces to overthrow the Governments of Iraq and Syria. Should a fanatical Islamic state in Sham materialise, the Americans may find a more implacable enemy.

13. The United States seems unable to learn from the failures of their past strategies. They created the Taliban to fight Russia in Afghanistan. That turned awry.

14. They went to war against Afghanistan and Iraq, believing with shock and awe they would finish victorious in three months. After ten years of costly wars in these countries they have succeeded only in putting in place extremist Muslim Governments. They are now unable to extricate themselves from these two countries.

15. They tried to promote regime change in Arab countries and only succeeded in destabilizing these countries. Democracy ends with anti-Americans extreme Islamic Governments being elected. The United States now finds itself having to support undemocratic overthrows of democratically elected Governments.

16. And now the jihadists of the Islamic Caliphate. Without United States involvement in Middle Eastern affairs the American journalist would not have been beheaded.

17. The American people are hopelessly ignorant of the world outside America. They believe whatever their Governments is doing is good for America. They will never learn simply because their print and electronic media are not under their control.

18. The United States belief that change from authoritarian rule to democracy would result in friendlier Governments is naive. Decades of United States support for Israel and anti-Islamic policies have made anti-American Islamic parties popular. Once elections are held following demoralization, the Islamists would win. And anti-Americanism will be even more violent.

19. America has much to learn about foreign relations.

    YA Bhg. Tun.

    I was really honoured to have the opportunity to meet Tun in person early this month and I could really see your frustrations over whats going on these days especially on the political front.

    Regarding your above article, in general the real disease Malaysia is facing over the years is POOR ENFORCEMENT of laws and policies! This is evident in almost every aspect of our daily lives. For example the booming and proliferation of massage parlors (rumah urut) in every nooks and corners of our towns and cities “oblivious” to the eyes of the local authorities.

    The rampant posting of illegal advertisement, posters and banners on street names, signboards, TNB and telephone street cabinets, traffic light posts, public amenities etc.. is a constant eye sore. Worst are the postings of vulgar advertising of pleasure massage and sex stimulants at strategic places of public convergence or presence much to the displeasure of adults with the company of their inquisitive children.

    Don’t tell us that the authorities cannot easily curb these illegal activities when the posters or advertisements come complete with contact telephone numbers! Are the authorities blind or has it got to do with RASUAH?

    This disease has taken its toll once again in Cameron Highlands. Don’t we learn the lesson from the first tragedy? Is it RASUAH again?

    Just to let go the burning anger in my chest…..

    The bombing of Serbia did not achieve the destruction of Serbia. It did not even get to the bottom of who were responsible for the murder of those innocents in Srebrenica. The former Yugoslavia was torn apart by the Europeans at a time the Soviet Union was collapsing. They wanted no slavic nation with power to stand in their way.

    All of Henry Kissinger and Israel’s bombing of their enemies in Viet Nam and Palestine has produced nothing. In Viet Nam although they dropped more bombs there than the allies did in World War 1 & 2 combined, the Viet Cong were victorious.

    In the middle east, Nethanyahu prompted the new Swedish government to recognize the state of Palestine followed by David Cameron’s government doing the same albeit conditionally.

    Germany provided “Advisors” (ground troops) as did the Dutch and others for a ground assault not to destroy Serbia which they did not. It was to secure Croatia, the old ally of the Nazis in order that Germany (and NATO) would have access to warm water ports in the Adriatic. Old strategy prior to World War 2.

    The danger here is that now that Russia under a very clever and highly skilled ruler is consolidating. They will rebuild the Soviet Union in a different form whilst Western Europe and their NATO backer the US is economically and politically weak. The morale of the Russians is high. This is no drunk thief and madman like Yeltsin.

    About a week prior to the shooting down of MH 17 a court in Holland convicted a number of Dutch soldiers and officers of the Royal Netherland Armed Forces who served in the former Yugoslavia under the UN flag of rounding up then handing over 300 Bosnians to the Serb Militias. All of these 3000 or so people mainly men were never ever seen again alive.

    There was a suspicion that MH 17 was taken down as an act of revenge by those from within the ranks of the survivors of the Srebrenica Muslims because there were Dutch officials on board MH 17. Nothing was said of the story after it was disclosed inadvertently by a Dutch Radio broadcaster in Hilversum.

    Please replace the first (inadvertently sent without correction) with this version.

    I don’t think anyone has so succinctly yet so simply described the situation with ISIS and the geo political plays in the middle east created by the west than you have done here.

    It is erudite a work of scholarship without the tongue twisting brain teasers to justify covering the truth.

    I hope the many Islamophobes like those ignorant lawmakers in Australia trying now to dislodge the Niqab or Burkha without the faintest understanding of the situation their own allies in Europe and North America have gotten them involved in will take heed of what you write.

    The situation in the middle east is now an intractable situation for the US and its allies. Bombing people from the skies is not a solution. It never was and it never will be.

    Much of the propaganda about ISIS and the Sunnis itself is just that, Scaremongering propaganda. Iran is basking in its glory having humiliated the Americans and their allies into back door negotiations with them to survive.

    I bet the US rues the day they overthrew then hanged Saddam Hussein. Their very interests and legitimacy in the reason is being scrutinised and tried before hanging by a new generation in that region.

    They now have to contain the fire they started in Hong Kong as well.

    Salaam Tun,

    Negara Barat yang di terajui olih Amerika mahu semua dunia tinggal bersama dalam satu cara yang mereka anuti dan berharap semua dunia menerima cara itu termasuk Russia dan negara2 Arab dan Islam. Tetapi olih kerana tidak ada cara pemikiraan yang sama, maka banyak negara2 lain itu tidak mahu mengikut tunjukcara negara2 Barat itu. Di sinilah bermulanya perselisihan yang sampai ketahap berperang.

    Olih kerana campurtangan negara Barat itulah maka negara2 Arab terutama nya dan Afghanistan misalnya, terjerumus dalam kucarkacir dan bermusuhan sesama sendiri.

    Ada ahli politik Amerika yang memberi amaran kepada kerajaan mereka supaya berjaga2 akan pembalasan dari negara2 Islam yang di anyanayi itu. Dan kali ini mungkin mereka akan serang tanah besar negara Amerika itu sekali lagi dan ini adalah satu kemungkinan yang jelas.

    Saya masih berpendapat bahawa satu lagi punca perpecahan di antara sesama Islam di dunia ini adalah kerana mereka mengambil hadis2 palsu sebagai hukum hakam amalan harian mereka. Mereka membunuh sesama sendiri atas nama ugama.

    Terima kasih Tun

    Sebagai kuasa superpower pada masa kini, Amerika mempunyai banyak kepentingan di negara-negara lain yang mesti dijaga. Kepentingan dari segi bekalan bahan bakar, pasaran, laluan perdagangan, pelaburan dan lain-lain lagi. Kesemua kepentingan ini sangat penting dalam survival Amerika sebagai sebuah negara termaju di dunia pada masa kini kerana rakyatnya telah ‘dibesarkan’ dan ‘dimanjakan’ dengan kemodenan serta kemewahan.

    Oleh itu, Amerika tidak punya pilihan lain melainkan mesti sentiasa memastikan kekal sebagai negara superpower agar segala kepentingannya di seluruh pelusuk dunia dapat dijaga. Maka, Amerika sama sesekali tidak akan membiarkan mana-mana negara untuk cuba mengambil kedudukannya sebagai kuasa nombor satu dunia.

    Amerika pasti akan mencatas atau menghalangnya dengan segala macam bentuk percaturan, bahkan Amerika tidak akan teragak-agak untuk mengunakan kuasa ketenteraan yang dimilikinya jika diperlukan.

    Greetings and peace, to Tun,

    This is out of topic, but I want to congratulate you as Chairman and the Proton company for launching of Proton Iriz.

    I had just test driven an Iriz, and it was a great pleasure. Better than most of the Malaysian cars I’ve driven in its class. The aesthetics and practicality is remarkable. I hope and pray more successes and advancement for Proton (and Malaysia) in the years to come.

  11. Hang Jebat Derhaka Sep 27,2014 12:23 AM

    Assalamualaikum,

    The terror created by any ‘kind’ of people must be regarded as crime. Therefore, we should condemn all of it. Of course when one are in power; one will never do wrong. Might is right. Contradict to this, the Muslims believe only truth that is always right. But often, the truth hurts.

    In history, Islam proved that might was not an excuse to act on wimp and fancy. Once Rome was conquered; it was developed to become basket of Europe; instead of raping the country to satisfy lust. Islam brought lights into the edge of darkness.

    Now the Zionist are consistently raping Palestine, banishing its citizen from their homes to build theirs, brutal killings and torture. All this were allowed because they are might or supported by the mighty one; the modern era of Romanian Empire; the uncle Sam. Everyone now this, but to some; it was regarded as victory. But this was not the case when Slahauddin Al-Ayubi conquered back this kingdom of heaven.

    Finding out the truth may not be that difficult if we steadfast. But believing in the truth; now that is not as easy. I found myself living in an era where lust is the new God. It fetter my heart from the light of Allah.

    YABhg Tun,

    When come to the Middle Easter countries, the US & it’s allies seems to use different sets of rules. Actions seems to be very swift for these Arabs countries. While other atrocities done by Israel or Pro Russian Rebels seems to be swept under the carpet…

  13. sallahuddin alayubbi Sep 26,2014 2:38 AM

    Salam Tun

    Your assessment on IS and the current development in the middle east is very interesting and I can quite agree with it. But I am quite sad that some of the bloggers and fellow Malaysians are labeling President Assad of Syria as an evil person, simply on the basis of newspaper coverage or TV news footage. I used to hear in some ceramah ugama and even during khutbah jumaat, of ustadz and the khatib, calling Assad as “diktator, kejam dan zalim”. One senior opposition politician even proclaimed Lutfi (the Malaysian fighter who was killed in Syria fighting against the government’s forces) as syahid. ( I really wonder how could a muslim man who fight against or kill other fellow muslims, as in the case of Syrian civil war, be called a syahid ! ).

    Not many of us, Malaysians, know the real situations in Syria. What we read and see are mostly reports, video footages and comments coming from the western news media. We know that the role of some of these foreign media is to demonise leaders of certain Islamic countries like Syria and Iran and non- Islamic North Korea, with a view to legitimise an attack or an invasion by another power, if the situation warranted, as in the case of Saddam Hussain of Iraq. I therefore believe that it is not fair and accurate for us to blindly call Assad, evil and cruel, as doing so, we are actually dancing to the tunes and playing into the hands of the western powers and Israel, who are all out to remove Assad from power in Syria.

    To me, Assad is a man of courage, as together with Iran and the Hezbollah of Lebanon, and with limited military and other resources, have managed to prevent US and Israel from having a field day in the middle east. They may be shite, but the fact remains that they are the symbols and pillars of our muslim struggle and opposition against Israel’s and US’ domination of the middle east. Just imagine what will happen to the middle east, Palestine in particular, without a strong Syria and Iran. Do we want Syria (and Iran) to be another Egypt or Iraq? A yes man to US and a coward to Israel ?

    Tun, you have visited Syria, if I am not mistaken, in 2003, met President Assad, shook his hand and had a heart to heart talk with him. You have seen his contribution, even with limited resources, to Syria and the Syrian people. You have seen how life is about for the Syrian people under his rule. Don’t forget he also opens Syria’s door to our students. That, I guess, make you the best person to judge Assad.

    thank you.

    Dr. Mahathir,

    Thank you so much for providing this website and writing such timely and important news articles. Please continue to educate your audience and the world for that matter to another point of view which is incredibly lacking in the mainstream news media.

    I don’t necessarily agree or even disagree with your statements and personal insights but I believe it is important to voice them. Everyone should be allowed to have a voice and to bring their point of view to the table. Your statements here in the west are very controversial and for that reason will not be brought forth in the general news media. Truth is not sought by those in power or the mainstream news media which is really just a mouth piece of those in power. Truth isn’t really even sought by the public in general. Most are christian in name only here in the west but I believe people are people no matter they live and their faith is mainly rooted in family and cultural traditions. Most people just want to live their lives but those who choose to join extremist groups appear to be those with little hope, proper education or opportunities or as we say here in the west, those with a “chip on their shoulder”. I think most great nations all go through a cycle of pioneering, development, education and then eventual moral decline and decadence on some level before collapse or destruction. Today it seems that most of the world, at least the west and I think many other parts of the world are also going through the same cycle of moral decline. In the west this moral decline appears to be by design and encouraged by Hollywood and our educational systems and also is tolerated by Christendom and most religions and is even tolerated by most families. This moral decline is spread through the music, video games, books, movies and TV shows that our youth are exposed to and also through the internet with porn and various degrading YouTube videos. It is any wonder that are children and young adults have no moral compass?

    I don’t give this world and it’s governments any hope for solving the world’s problems. However I do believe that the God of the Holy Bible will soon act and put and end to this sick and wicked world. What we see happening today was all predicted. We are living in the same situation that Noah and his family lived in and soon God’s patience will have an end.

    Assallammualaikum Tun.
    Mohon ruangan.
    Tuan Abu Alya.
    [I think the jihadist ISIS or even our own PASist, they all learn by rote the strict interpretation of the Syaria law]
    It is so sad.
    Actually PAS and all their follower is the very ism they are not!
    They don’t follow the truly strict interpretation Syariah Law by the basic of Hudud that is knowledge.
    In this world medical convention,one cannot says their understand skin grafting by the level of PAS education and theology.
    Education is a magic wand.
    Arbacadabra..lo and behold..
    What is in the virtual comes to reality like communication.
    You need to broadcast by transmitting the packet of the data.
    The receiver tune it to proper band synchronisation.Establish connection.A handshake.
    Sometimes a verification is needed.
    “Are we in sync? ( synchronisation )’
    Not “Are we in sing?”
    These terminology is needed in certain multitask and multicast.
    Coming back to our present equation.
    Have you ever wonder how do we agree to a taste a value like sweetness?
    A sample is needed.A sip of syrup.
    The syrup is passed around and most who tasted will agree it is sweet.
    There is only a degree of taste of sweetness to be argued.
    The principal is agreed upon.
    The syrup tasted sweet.
    We are so engrossed in our daily values that we took for granted the blessing of sense and perception.
    The definition of sweet is abstract and unseen yet we could decipher by a medium that is a syrup.
    There is sweetness in sugar,honey,sucrose so on and so forth.
    We agree to the value of sweetness by concensus feeling and taste.
    But it is utmost sad we do not agree about the ‘sweetness’ tasted in performing the duty in our religion.
    Instead of doing it as a chores,we should enjoy them like enjoying the recitation of Al Quran.

    AL QURAN RECITATION IS THE SWEETEST OF ALL!..

    Terima kasih Tun.

  18. Abu Alya Sep 25,2014 12:10 PM

    Salam Tun.

    to tuan wajaperak. Sometimes we have to break convention, before it breaks us down. Personally, I dont believe in learning by rote or the hafaz method. I would even stretch it so far to the point of questioning the various tafseers by dead scholars, Imam Ghazali included, from some doggone era. We are children of the time, of the ‘zaman’, and we had better not go back to the desert ways if we intend to stay relevant.

    Coming back to Tun’s topic, I think the jihadist ISIS or even our own PASist, they all learn by rote the strict interpretation of the Syaria law, the punishments aspects are which apparently seems to delight them the most. Cut hands, chop heads, 100 lashes, stoning … etc etc

    From my own experience. Out of fear and for their safety, body and mind, I stopped sending my kids to school when I found out that they were fed and brainwashed with ‘junk knowledge’ by their teachers who were mostly more keen to enlist them into night classes, where these teachers can make good money from tuition fees. Not enough daytime, the kids and parents are coerced to go for extra classes to obtain the highest grade in this system of ‘education’, where exam-paper leaks also has its proper place and price.

    Perhaps it would not be a bad ‘idea’ for a resident smart aleck in Tun’s blog to write a book on ‘Education of an Muslim Idiot in the 21st Century’ or write a manual called “Syaria Law for Dummies’. The potential for pahala and reward of Jannah, as a congruent ‘idea’ that the jihadist are trained to belief, could be insurmountable …

    Tun,
    Assalamualaikum, tumpang lalu. anaki, obviously you don’t seem to understand Tun’s articles or what the US government’s contributions to the conflicts of the world. I may not understand fully but I think I have an idea of what they have done. Japan’s occupation in Malaya – there are pros and cons on the effect of their occupation. Who knows, if they are still here, people like you or DAP may not be around.

    Salam Tun,

    “You can’t have a good leader who is dumb or only good at being popular, but not knowledgeable… you must be a doctor, go through the procedures to reach a diagnosis and prescribe the medicine.”

    1. How apt is your above statement. Unfortunately, someone is so dumb and stupid he is pretending he is still the people’s champion!

    2. Where in the world would you find a government that is more fearful of bankrupts than of terrorists, killers, gangsters, and criminals but in Malaysia, the Bolehland Country!

    3. The government repealed ISA and EO and soon SA due to supposedly antiquated laws, but they retained another antiquated law called the Bankruptcy Law 1967! Why? What is the logic?

    4. Which group is a treat to the society? The government of the day, or the bankrupts?

    5. Anyway, I have started a campaign to spoil votes in GE14 so Malaysia would be known as a democratic country with the highest number of spoilt votes ever!

    Sekian, Tun. Terima kasih. Wassalam.

    P.S.
    6. My late girlfriend used to tell me, “a good lawyer is dead lawyer”, and now I know what she had meant!

    7. I have a least bit worry over Islamic State, Palestine, USA, PKR, DAP, PAS, etc., as I am possessed with my desire to see DSN ends his reign as the PM of Malaysia!

    Assallammualaikum Tun.
    Saya mohon ruangan.
    [Abu Alya
    Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it’s almost impossible to eradicate]
    Tuan.
    Why as a tertiary student one have to cite from an establish reference?
    Why not we cite from our own?
    Old school professor’s and tutor ( at least mine do ) does not belief reference or citation from the Internet.
    They believe sources from journal’s and book.Something they can hold their hand’s upon.
    Beside,everybody can write on this virtual platform and claimed they are the expert.
    Tun is the benchmark in blogging.
    Coming back to your statement tuan.
    “Hati orang-orang mukmin itu di antara dua jari RabNya”.
    “Hati orang-orang mukmin itu lebih cepat bergolak dari daging di dalam kuah”.
    Something or other to that effect.
    When a lintasan or bisikan hati enter’s to one heart,one is incapable of stoping these tought and ideas even suggestion’s.
    One the most vile suggestion is fornication.
    Many thought this is normal for men.
    Actually it is the same with women.Only they have more intricacies in the plot and schema.
    The question is why we allow’s them to stay in our heart?
    It is our duty to purge them following this commandment.

    “Sesungguhnya beruntunglah orang yang mensucikan jiwa itu dan sesungguhnya rugilah orang yang mengotorinya.” (al-Syams, ayat 7-10)

    The methodology is Zikr.
    “Kemudian apabila kamu telah selesai mengerjakan sembahyang,maka hendaklah kamu menyebut dan mengingati Allah semasa kamu berdiri atau duduk dan semasa kamu berbaring”
    An Nisa 103.
    Too true that when the evil thought have reside, it is an upmountain task to remove them.
    Hence the role of the heart.

    1)Hati umpama Tanah.
    2)Hati umpama Cermin.
    3)Hati umpama Pedang.

    All said and done,Al Quran is the solution of all world problem.

    JUST RECITE THEM MOST OFTEN.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Refer to anaki’s uncalled for and uneducated comment regarding UMNO / BN playing with race and religion, this must have come from a DAP / PR goon. The reality is exactly the opposite cos DAP has been trying very hard to influence the Chinese community to look down on the Malays.

    Dearest YAB Tun,

    1. Excellent article! Very informative and educational; a lot of valuable lessons can be learned in one article; clear and precise. Tun is the only leader in Malaysia who is able to educate Malaysians (history lessons, etc.), while at the same time gives critical / constructive opinions on current issues. Yang lain2 (pemimpin) kebanyakannya cuma boleh ‘omong kosong’ saja –> merapu/meraban. PAS (kononnya akan menegak ‘Negara Islam ala PAS’) yang paling banyak memecah-belahkan umat Islam di Malaysia.

    2. Good news on Proton PCC/Iriz. Congratulations Proton!

    Why blame the USA for middle east problems? there’re so many dictators that killed their own peoples of different religions or sects even before USA stepping into middle east! If not because of USA, Saddam might have killed few millions more peoples! Kuwait would still be under Iraq and terrorists (from south of Philippines) sponsored by Al Qaeda would be making troubles in Sabah!

    Just like in a family, big brother wants the little brothers to listen to him, so big countries like USA, Russia, China, UK (not so big now because its people are enjoying life rather than working hard while still having some commonwealth countries listening to it), France (not so big now except with nuclear power) wanted smaller countries to listen to them, so that they can get cheap labour and goods for their countries! These problems would not go away even if there’s only 1 country in the world or just UN!

    If not because of USA, Malaya will still be under Japanese occupation! We might not be around to comment in this blog as our heads might have rolled!

    Salam Tun.

    After reading your post, I think you are most qualified to write a book titled, ‘The Problem With Islam’ or ‘The Problem With Muslims’

    The Muslims nowadays it seems are so caught up with their ‘belief’ may it be Sunni, Salafi, Syiah, Wahhabi, Sufi and they are very busy attacking one another while non-Muslims look in disbelief how this so-called ‘peaceful’ religion could churn out so much anger and hostility, not only among themselves, but also spilling over to engage the non-believers into some kind of conflict.

    From the movie Inception, ‘An idea. Resilient… highly contagious. Once an idea has taken hold of the brain it’s almost impossible to eradicate. An idea that is fully formed – fully understood – that sticks; right in there somewhere.’

    ISIS, Hamas, OIC and the numerous factions linked to Islam – they all started with an idea, the inception which has been programmed a long time ago by these people. They are a part of Soros and Hillary Clinton supported NGOs in our country that will rip apart our society into warring factions if the Malaysian people are not made aware of their devious plans.

    As long as Sunni & Shiites are playing into the hands of the US, like BN/UMNO is playing with race and religion, there will always be problems in the middle east or in Malaysia! Why people so easily played into the hands of these manipulators? Is it because they are ignorant or refuse to learn? May be it is time to take 5 to visit few interesting websites:-

    Dear Tun,

    Please continue clarifying to the world or at least us, Malaysians. I pray for your long good health and may Allah s.w.t protects you all the time. I do enjoy watching American movies and benefit from their technology but that does not mean I accept their ideology.

    Dr Mahathir,

    Thank you for your very informative middle eastern history lesson! I know you have recently been under attack by a most prominent US Law Professor from the University of Illinois this past week so this article you have written is a very timely and well written response to his allegations.

    Here in the US the new terror threat is supposedly the Syrian “Khorasan” terrorist Muslim extremists who are plotting aviation attacks against US cities! Little is yet known about them and few in the US have heard of them until the last 4 days!

    Yes the west is asleep and watching American football and worried about Ebola while the middle east and Ukraine are being devastated! Many have no or little interest in world affairs.

    The US Government are instigators, alright. They financially supported and instigated opposition (NGOs and it’s outfits) in foreign land, to overthrow Government whose leaders does not toe the line. This, maybe the reason why, Najib seems to be more friendly with the US, nowadays. Of-course Anwar Ibrahim is friendly with the American. I’m sure, if he succeeded in becoming PM, Malaysia will be an ally of the US. Then, we will be having troubles with China, especially in Layang-Layang isles, same as Philippine, Vietnam, Japan and South Korea.

    Russia had enacted FARA (Foreign Agent Registration Act) in 2011, almost the same with what exist in the US since 1938. That’s why Russia is peaceful now. No funds, no more visibly dissidents or opposition rallies. The Americans are very clever. They claimed to be the champion of democracy, yet they have ‘Patriot Acts’ which imprisoned people without trial in Guantanamo. But Najib abolished the ISA, upon the wishes of the opposition, against the wishes of those who voted for him to be elected as PM. Now he is contemplating to do away with Sedition Acts, against the majority wishes of his political branch leaders, too.

    Ukraine today would have been peaceful if US and the West had not interfere with their politics. We too would not have lost MH17 and to some extend, MH370.
    Just before the referendum in Crimea, President Putin said, “We are not the instigator in Ukraine”.

    Salam Tun,

    Thank you for calling a spade a spade. Tun should seriously consider writing a guide book titled “The Middle East Conflict for Dummies” as your explanations are clear, precise and easy to comprehend.
    And it is right on the money when you say that the American public are an ignorant lot and blindly trust their government’s foreign policies which if I may add, smacks of ultimate hypocrisy and double standards.
    The Americans definitely have a lot to learn from you.

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Ilmu Allah s.w.t seperti yang berada di dalam pasaran hasil karya ulama dan ahli tasawuf besar sepanjang pembacaan saya adalah benar.

    Tidaklah mereka ini dikurniakan kebesaran tanpa melalui penghinaan mahupun fitnah sebagai rantaian ujian. Tulisan saya kali ini berkisar berkenaan penghinaan dan fitnah dari mulut manusia kerana harta dan pangkat. Lumrah manusia yang menjadikan harta benda sebagai matlamat hidup.

    Ini kerana salah seorang sahabat saya yang sentiasa berbicara dan memerhati kelakuan saya secara berdepan sangat risaukan dengan kata kata manusia yang boleh menjatuhkan imej saya dan kebetulan dianya ini seperti mengikut arah perjalanan yang sama saya lalui ketika ini.

    Tiadalah saya mengenali secara peribadi Tun Mahathir ketika beliau masih mempunyai kuasa Perdana Menteri di tangan melainkan setelah Tun Mahathir berada dalam kejian dan penghinaan yang amat apabila kuasa tiada kuasa di tangan. Itulah janji yang Allah sediakan.

    Tiadalah saya mahu memperendahkan keturunan Syeikh Abdul Malik dan salasilah Sayyid Abdul Rahman (Tokku Paloh) dengan membiarkan orang memerhati kelakuan saya yang membiarkan diri saya dihina dan dikeji dalam bermasyarakat seperti yang saya lalui sekarang.

    Apakah saya tidak berbangga dengan kejayaan menyelesaikan masalah besar ekonomi dan politik negara pada 2008 (ketika mana kerajaan tidak mampu berbuat apa apa) dengan bekalan kebijaksanaan mentadbir turun temurun dan sabar melalui keupayaan darah ulama?

    Apakah saya tidak berbangga dengan kejayaan menyelesaikan masalah MH17 pada 2014 (ketika mana kerajaan tidak mampu berbuat apa apa) dengan bekalan keberanian dan kelicikan perang turun temurun melalui keupayaan panglima?

    Jika sahabat saya tidak dapat menekuni arah perjalanan saya kini, usahlah mengikut kerana perjalanan ini memerlukan kesabaran.Namun nampaknya sahabat saya ini tiada pilihan melainkan mengikut jalan yang sama.

    Dan ingatlah, antara sifat Rasullallah s.a.w adalah CERDIK selain dari sifat menyampaikan.

    Sekian terima kasih Tun.

    For the ways of the LORD are right,
    and the upright walk in them,
    but the transgressors stumble in them.

    Tun,

    So educational and let hope middle-east countries wake up from their induced sleep. The primary role of USA in middle-east is to destabilise all Govts or authorities so that they are only way to control their oil. USA is using the big brother strategy and divide and rule. Hope Russia and China would like to compete for control then we see WWIII but Russia and China are smarter they want to play the waiting game, let USA bankrupt first then they come in which is cheaper and easier.
    Yes when will the American citizen realise that their Govt are taking them for a ride into nowhere. We are watching the start of the end of one great nation or country or empire, history always repeat itself. USA did the same thing to British Empire (come-in when they are weaker) in WWII and now we are seeing Russia and China doing the same to USA
    Best of health to you and family
