Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s speech at the general debate of the 73rd session of the United Nations General Assembly 28

Madam President,
1. I would like to join others in congratulating you on your election as the President of the Seventy-Third (73rd) Session of the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA).
2. I am confident with your wisdom and vast experience; this session will achieve the objectives of the theme for this session. I assure you of Malaysia’s fullest support and cooperation towards achieving these noble goals.
3. Allow me to also pay tribute to your predecessor, His Excellency Miroslav Lajcak, for his dedication and stewardship in successfully completing the work of the 72nd Session of the General Assembly.
4. I commend the Secretary-General and the United Nations staff for their tireless efforts in steering and managing UN activities globally.
5. In particular, I pay tribute to the late Kofi Annan, the seventh Secretary-General of the UN from 1997 – 2006, who sadly passed away in August this year. Malaysia had a positively strong and active engagement with the UN during his tenure.
Madam President,
6. The theme of this 73rd Session of General Assembly, “Making the United Nations Relevant to All People: Global Leadership and Shared Responsibilities for Peaceful, Equitable and Sustainable Societies” remains true to the aspiration of our founding fathers. The theme is most relevant and timely. It is especially pertinent in the context of the new Malaysia. The new Government of Malaysia, recently empowered with a strong mandate from its people, is committed to ensure that every Malaysian has an equitable share in the prosperity and wealth of the nation.
7. A new Malaysia emerged after the 14th General Election in May this year. Malaysians decided to change their government, which had been in power for 61 years, i.e., since independence. We did this because the immediate past Government indulged in the politics of hatred, of racial and religious bigotry, as well as widespread corruption. The process of change was achieved democratically, without violence or loss of lives.
8. Malaysians want a new Malaysia that upholds the principles of fairness, good governance, integrity and the rule of law. They want a Malaysia that is a friend to all and enemy of none. A Malaysia that remains neutral and non-aligned. A Malaysia that detests and abhors wars and violence. They also want a Malaysia that will speak its mind on what is right and wrong, without fear or favour. A new Malaysia that believes in co-operation based on mutual respect, for mutual gain. The new Malaysia that offers a partnership based on our philosophy of ‘prosper-thy-neighbour’. We believe in the goodness of cooperation, that a prosperous and stable neighbour would contribute to our own prosperity and stability.
9. The new Malaysia will firmly espouse the principles promoted by the UN in our international engagements. These include the principles of truth, human rights, the rule of law, justice, fairness, responsibility and accountability, as well as sustainability. It is within this context that the new government of Malaysia has pledged to ratify all remaining core UN instruments related to the protection of human rights. It will not be easy for us because Malaysia is multi-ethnic, multireligious, multicultural and multilingual. We will accord space and time for all to deliberate and to decide freely based on democracy.Madam President,10. When I last spoke here in 2003, I lamented how the world had lost its way. I bemoaned the fact that small countries continued to be at the mercy of the powerful. I argued the need for the developing world to push for reform, to enhance capacity building and diversify the economy. We need to maintain control of our destiny.
11. But today, 15 years later the world has not changed much. If at all the world is far worse than 15 years ago. Today the world is in a state of turmoil
economically, socially and politically.
12. There is a trade war going on between the two most powerful economies. And the rest of the world feel the pain.
13. Socially new values undermine the stability of nations and their people. Freedom has led to the negation of the concept of marriage and families, of moral codes, of respect etc.
14. But the worse turmoil is in the political arena. We are seeing acts of terror everywhere. People are tying bombs to their bodies and blowing themselves up in crowded places. Trucks are driven into holiday crowds. Wars are fought and people beheaded with short knives. Acts of brutality are broadcast to the world live. Masses of people risk their lives to migrate only to be denied asylum, sleeping in the open and freezing to death. Thousands starve and tens of thousands die in epidemics of cholera.
15. No one, no country is safe. Security checks inconvenience travellers. No liquids on planes. The slightest suspicion leads to detention and unpleasant questioning.
16. To fight the “terrorists” all kinds of security measures, all kinds of gadgets and equipment are deployed. Big brother is watching. But the acts of terror continues.
17. Malaysia fought the bandits and terrorists at independence and defeated them. We did use the military. But alongside and more importantly we campaigned to win the hearts of minds of these people.
18. This present war against the terrorist will not end until the root causes are found and removed and hearts and minds are won.
19. What are the root causes? In 1948, Palestinian land was seized to form the state of Israel. The Palestinians were massacred and forced to leave their land. Their houses and farms were seized.
20. They tried to fight a conventional war with help from sympathetic neighbours. The friends of Israel ensured this attempt failed. More Palestinian land was seized. And Israeli settlements were built on more and more Palestinian land and the Palestinians are denied access to these settlements built on their land.
21. The Palestinians initially tried to fight with catapults and stones. They were shot with live bullets and arrested. Thousands are incarcerated.
22. Frustrated and angry, unable to fight a conventional war, the Palestinians resort to what we call terrorism.
23. The world does not care even when Israel breaks international laws, seizing ships carrying medicine, food and building materials in international waters. The Palestinians fired ineffective rockets which hurt no one. Massive retaliations were mounted by Israel, rocketing and bombing hospitals, schools and other buildings, killing innocent civilians including school children and hospital patients. And more.
24. The world rewards Israel, deliberately provoking Palestine by recognising Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.
25. It is the anger and frustration of the Palestinians and their sympathisers that cause them to resort to what we call terrorism. But it is important to acknowledge that any act which terrify people also constitute terrorism. And states dropping bombs or launching rockets which maim and kill innocent people also terrify people. These are also acts of terrorism.
26. Malaysia hates terrorism. We will fight them. But we believe that the only way to fight terrorism is to remove the cause. Let the Palestinians return to reclaim their land. Let there be a state of Palestine. Let there be justice and the rule of law. Warring against them will not stop terrorism. Nor will out-terrorising them succeed.
27. We need to remind ourselves that the United Nations Organisation, like the League of Nations before, was conceived for the noble purpose of ending wars between nations.

28. Wars are about killing people. Modern wars are about mass killings and total destruction countrywide. Civilised nations claim they abhor killing for any reason. When a man kills, he commits the crime of murder. And the punishment for murder may be death.
29. But wars, we all know encourage and legitimise killing. Indeed the killings are regarded as noble, and the
killers are hailed as heroes. They get medals stuck to their chest and statues erected in their honour, have their names mentioned in history books.
30. There is something wrong with our way of thinking, with our value system. Kill one man, it is murder, kill a million and you become a hero. And so we still believe that conflict between nations can be resolved with war.
31. And because we still do, we must prepare for war. The old adage says “to have peace, prepare for war”. And we are forever preparing for war, inventing more and more destructive weapons. We now have nuclear bombs, capable of destroying whole cities. But now we know that the radiation emanating from the explosion will affect even the country using the bomb. A nuclear war would destroy the world.
32. This fear has caused the countries of Europe and North America to maintain peace for over 70 years. But that is not for other countries. Wars in these other countries can help live test the new weapons being invented.
33. And so they sell them to warring countries. We see their arms in wars fought between smaller countries. These are not world wars but they are no less destructive. Hundreds of thousands of people have been killed, whole countries devastated and nations bankrupted because of these fantastic new weapons.
34. But these wars give handsome dividends to the arms manufacturers and traders. The arms business is now the biggest business in the world. They profit shamelessly from the deaths and destructions they cause. Indeed, so-called peace-loving countries often promote this shameful business.
35. Today’s weapons cost millions. Fighter jets cost about 100 million dollars. And maintaining them cost tens of millions. But the poor countries are persuaded to buy them even if they cannot afford. They are told their neighbours or their enemies have them. It is imperative that they too have them.
36. So, while their people starve and suffer from all kinds of deprivations, a huge percentage of their budget is allocated to the purchase of arms. That their buyers may never have to use them bothers the purveyors not at all.
Madam President,
37. In Myanmar, Muslims in Rakhine state are being murdered, their homes torched and a million refugees had been forced to flee, to drown in the high seas, to live in makeshift huts, without water or food, without the most primitive sanitation. Yet the authorities of Myanmar including a Nobel Peace Laureate deny that this is happening. I believe in non-interference in the internal affairs of nations. But does the world watch massacres being carried out and do nothing? Nations are independent. But does this mean they have a right to massacre their own people, because they are independent?
Madam President,
38. On the other hand, in terms of trade, nations are no longer independent. Free trade means no protection by small countries of their infant industries. They must abandon tariff restrictions and open their countries to invasion by products of the rich and the powerful. Yet the simple products of the poor are subjected to clever barriers so that they cannot penetrate the market of the rich. Malaysian palm oil is labelled as dangerous to health and the estates are destroying the habitat of animals. Food products of the rich declare that they are palm oil free. Now palm diesel are condemned because they are decimating virgin jungles. These caring people forget that their boycott is depriving hundreds of thousands of people from jobs and a decent life.
39. We in Malaysia care for the environment. Some 48% of our country remains virgin jungle. Can our detractors claim the same for their own countries?
Madam President,
40. Malaysia is committed to sustainable development. We have taken steps, for example in improving production methods to ensure that our palm oil production is sustainable. By December 2019, the Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) standard will become mandatory. This will ensure that every drop of palm oil produced in Malaysia will be certified sustainable by 2020.
Madam President,
41. All around the world, we observe a dangerous trend to inward-looking nationalism, of governments pandering to populism, retreating from international collaborations and shutting their borders to free movements of people, goods and services even as they talk of a borderless world, of free trade. While globalisation has indeed brought us some benefits, the impacts have proven to be threatening to the independence of small nations. We cannot even talk or move around without having our voices and movement recorded and often used against us. Data on everyone is captured and traded by powerful nations and their corporations.
42. Malaysia lauds the UN in its endeavours to end poverty, protect our planet and try to ensure everyone enjoys peace and prosperity. But I would like to refer to the need for reform in the organisation. Five countries on the basis of their victories 70 over years ago cannot claim to have a right to hold the world to ransom forever. They cannot take the moral high ground, preaching democracy and regime change in the countries of the world when they deny democracy in this organisation.
43. I had suggested that the veto should not be by just one permanent member but by at least two powers backed by three non-permanent members of the Security Council. The General Assembly should then back the decision with a simple majority. I will not say more.
44. I must admit that the world without the UN would be disastrous. We need the UN, we need to sustain it with sufficient funds. No one should threaten it with financial deprivation.
Madam President
45. After 15 years and at 93, I return to this podium with the heavy task of bringing the voice and hope of the new Malaysia to the world stage. The people of Malaysia, proud of their recent democratic achievement, have high hopes that around the world – we will see peace, progress and prosperity. In this we look toward the UN to hear our pleas.

I thank you, Madam President.

    Yup, the ball is on the desk of ag in putrajaya, mr tommy thomas, and hakim negara to nail the coffin in high court tanpa pilih kasih so that all of us can judge.

    For those lawyers who think suing the ruling government of the day that feed them can make them rich overnight, then, indeed they are the pariah lawyers.

    I dont mean to be racist since truth will and shall prevail, and it is just only a matter of time.

    Is it halal not to pay epf to your employees as melayu?

    Is it halal not to pay taxes, cukai pintu dan cukai tanah to the ruling government as melayu?

    Is it halal to chop heads and hands as capital punishment as melayu?

    Walaupun aku bukan muslim, aku pun tahu apakah itu halal dan haram.

    For faradina, part of my book on Lee Kuan Yew titled, ‘THE BRILLIANCE OR FAILURE OF GENIUS.’ already written in chedet archives ‘ Malaysia according to Kuan Yew. September 2010 by way of my revelation of 47 Failed Fables and Foibles of Lee Kuan Yew

    For the fake ex-clerk HBT456. Stop talking rubbish fit for Lee Kuan Yew’s Singapore River full of filth which stinks.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! We all buy the first New National Car in 2020 ! Where are you Singapore lover, hbt654 ?

  4. HBT456 Oct 6,2018 12:07 PM

    Why worries, faridina on whether anwar can tumpang or not angka 7 to become the 8th prime minister.

    Anwar and gang can also always have the choice to import muslim workers from far far away kingdom what just like what bn dulu, betul tak?

    Siapa tahu, mungkin muslim sini fell in love and kahwin dengan muslim workers in the name of simpati, boleh kan, which is a total oppositie of what singapore is doing.

    To singapore, their government dont import refugees from war torn countries but they wont ban the singaporeans to help as long as they jaga diri mereka.

    To singapore, their government made a lot of donation too in low profile.


    Jika betul2 berniat murni bikin donation, tak payah hebohkan publisiti yang aku buat donation, betul tak?

    Moreover, if those leaders with huge population yang amat miskin, mereka boleh minta bantuan imf what in singapore.

    Sini, kita tak perlu mintak imf, but whoever gets the majority votes via political parties, they will form the cabinet and name the prime minister.

    Jadi, dedak atau kek, does it matter since pm must call for ge in every 5 years.

    Yup, the end must justify the mean.

    Winner takes all, similarly looser takes all as mps could be rigged with snap of fingers.

    Therefore, ada apa2 masalah, please blame the chinese leaders, not chinese voters, ok?

    P/s: The by election in pd is akin to the job scope of richard gere in pretty women, boleh atau tidak, itu terpulang kepada ph and bn.

  5. faridina Oct 5,2018 2:03 AM

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,



    Malas rasanya nak ulas PRK PD..
    Mungkin Anwar menang..
    Tapi Langkah PD belum tentu tak sumbang..

    Calon bertanding ada 7..

    Tarikh PRK PD pada 13/10/2018 dikecilkan;
    1+3+1+0+2+0+1+8 =16 =1+6 = 7..

    Semua ini kena dengan angka kemenangan PH baru-baru ini pada 09/05/2018 yang dikecilkan 7..

    Tahukah anda Anwar adalah bekas TPM yang ke 7..

    So setakat menang PRK boleh..
    Walaupun ada kemungkinan dibatalkan mahkamah.. tiada siapa yang tahu?


    Langkah PD menjadi sumbang kali ke 2 selepas Langkah Kajang huhuhu..

    Itulah Anwar teringin sangat jadi PM ke 8 tapi dia terlupa sebelum itu dia kena menjadi TPM ke 13 di bawah PM ke 7 hihihi..

    Maka untuk jalan selamat Anwar kena biarkan Azizah jadi TPM sehingga Tun M serahkan jawatan PM kepada beliau tak kiralah mungkin hingga habis penggal siapa tahu?

    p/s : Fikir-fikirkanlah sdr Anwar kerana kami tahu juak2 anda mahu ‘Oh Azizah anda’ letak jawatan TPM selepas anda bergelar Ahli Parlimen PD nanti..tapi jadi TPM ke 13 ngeri lah.. ada berani?

    p/s : Uncle MC care to write a book titled “A Dictator Who Cries”?

    Your suggestion of a theme park on Pulau Langkawi is a sound project which might require capital and time.

    You might have noticed around the World there are museums which cater to the automobile fraternity especially in Japan, Germany, the UK and the US. It might be feasible and timely at this juncture to establish a Museum Centre for Air, Sea and Land Transportation at a convenient site with easy assess to many which could be identified by the promoter.

    I envisage the establishment of Land Transportation first which entails in the main the history of our iconic Proton from the First Model to the latest and augmented by all the motor brands of the World. All the motorcars are either donated or on loan.

    As it is, historical motorcars owned by the Federal Government and the States are stored in isolation.

    Put if these valuable cars are displayed together as whole, the sum of the motorcars is greater than the whole. The Royal Houses are encouraged to display their rare motorcars too. The motor car collectors will be invited also to display their best. All in the National Interest for the sake of the tourist and the Rakyat.

    The motorcycle exhibits will be a great attraction !

    A modernistic solidly constructed one storey display hall is built by open competition and tender. Natural cooling and lighting are utilised as far as possible to reduce electricity costs. A Japanese architect would be ideal.

    The Ministry of Youth Culture and Sports should overseer the project. A Foundation should be set up to prevent hanky-panky. I envisage only a minimum of Government subsidy is required because the entrance fee for the tourist is US 2 per adult and for locals RM 2 per adult. Children are free. Within the annexe, there is a cinemax to show road safety and other films on the motorsport. A cafeteria is a must. And a Club to for motorcar enthusiasts to keep in touch with the developments of events.

    A good Curator is a must. If a foreign Curator is employed then a Malaysian should understudy him for a period. The Japanese are quite knowledgeable with this esoteric activity too.

    The Museum for Land Transportation should begin first. Then followed by the Aviation or Maritime Transportation.

    The 3 Museums form the Museum of Transportation Complex on Pulau Langkawi. If these are grouped together on a resort island, the Complex or Centre will be one of the main attractions for domestic and foreign tourists all the time at minimum cost.

    All the exhibits for the Museums are available from the existing motorcar fraternity, or for Aviation, from the Air museums around and of course, the Navy would have their historic exhibits as well.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    What more can I say about this morning and the headlines. Another fine Malaysian morning but overcast with expectations of more revelations to come. Revelations of past wrong doings which should not have occurred if under different circumstance. The current day events in our beloved Malaysia maybe succinctly put by the Bard Shakespeare thus :-

    To one well-known personality, ‘ There is a tide in the affairs of men which taken at the flood, leads onto fortune. Omitted, all the voyage of their lives are bound in shallows and miseries.’

    To another well-known personality.’ His life was gentle and the elements so mixed in him, that Nature might stand up and say to all the World,’ This was a Man.’

    These 16th Century observations by Shakespeare were as appropriate then as now, the 21st Century, Tun.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

  8. Kluangman Oct 3,2018 9:01 PM

    Awesome speech Sir/Tun , Glad and honoured to have you back. Thank You.

  9. mubarakchan Oct 3,2018 1:10 PM




    I did not cross the red line. I could have made billions of ringgits by being a crook like ALL THE OTHER CLOSEST AIDES WHO KEPT QUIET AND CROSSED THE RED LINE AND DID NOT REPORT THE TRUTH TO THE BOSS BUT KEPT HIM IN THE DARK.



    In 1996, a crook bluffed and claimed to be able to support the Stock Exchange of Singapore and Kuala Lumpur, EXACTLY WHAT I AVOIDED TO DO. He caused the FIRST BANKRUPTCY OF SIME DARBY VIA THE SIME BANK WHICH LOST RM 350 MILLION and an innocent banking executive took the blame. Not the crook who crossed the Red Line by making money in collusion with others which I REFUSED TO DO IN 1984. It was a travesty of justice.



    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always ! No closest aides for us Malaysians.

  10. mubarakchan Oct 3,2018 9:40 AM


    This morning there was only one glaring headline, thus


    Apparently, this important statement came about in the BBC Interview between Tun and Zainab Badawi during the Hard Talk programme amongst other matters of note.

    These were that Malaysia will be an Asian Tiger again which I reckon in 3 years time, jobs for the Rakyat will take pride of place in the New Government’s list of priorities, many foreign investors are keen to invest in Malaysia etc.

    However, it is important to note that you were consistent in your views on the same subjects which were raised whilst you were still in office during your 22 year Administration like the Palestinian question concerning the Israelis, the role of the Superpowers in World conflicts and so on.

    You were absolutely right on the proposed immigration of 700,000 Chinese by the back door when Malaysia has already got a set of rules and regulations concerning a Second Home for foreigners who wish to retire here. In fact, the fee for such a privilege should now be raised to US$ 1 Million taking into cognizance that Malaysia is now one of 4 Most Important Small Countries of the World. All these aside.


    For years I have been commenting that the scandals in Malaysia were caused by the closest aides in the System until in the last BN Government the 6th Prime Minister was alleged to be involved as well

    Here is the case of a closest aide who became mighty rich and was documented by me with solid evidence and witnesses that scandals are caused by the CLOSEST AIDES during Tun’s 22 year Administration using the name of the BOSS. There is an ancient saying Tun, ‘If a person runs along the horse of a Mandarin, some droppings will also fall on him.’

    This closest aide who is a foreigner and more astute than the Chinese
    began carrying the Samsonite of our famous Tan Sri Basir Ismail in a small tin-plate factory in Johor Baru. From here, this closest aide did important jobs for the BOSS.

    By 1992, 10 years later, he rang me up when I was a Director representing EPF interests due to my restructuring of both Cycle & Carriage Ltd Singapore and Cycle & Carriage Bintang Berhad from 1984-1992, and told me to resign immediately or else he would report me to the BOSS and sack me with an EGM. – .WITHOUT GIVING ME ANY REASON.


    I knew what he wanted.


    This the closest aide did immediately after he was appointed Director of both companies in my place. I WAS ALSO REPRESENTING EPF CONTROLLING AND SUBSTANTIAL INTERESTS IN THE CYCLE & CARRIAGE GROUP – Malaysian Government’s investment interests.

    As a Director he sold these 2 best assets in which the Malaysian Government had substantial interests to his friends WITHOUT VALUATION AND TENDER !

    See how a closest foreign aide ABUSED THE TRUST WHICH HIS BOSS PLACED IN HIM. Behind the BOSS’s back, through greed, this foreign closest aide bullied A REPRESENTATIVE OF EPF A GOVERNMENT BODY TO MAKE CORRUPT MONEY TAKING ADVANTAGE OF MALAYSIAN GOVERNMENT’S ASSETS AND WAS CAUGHT by being reported legally in THE 1993 & 1994 Annual Reports of Cycle & Carriage Ltd Singapore and Cycle & Carriage Bintang Berhad as solid evidence of cheating and corruption by a closest aide of the BOSS. WITHOUT HIS BOSS’s KNOWLEDGE. He resigned immediately after the cheap sales to his friends !

    And this was only one instance in 1992. What about between 1982-1992, HOW MUCH DID THIS CORRUPT CLOSEST AIDE TOOK BEHIND HIS BOSS BACK ? Hence, all those manufacturing activities supervised by this foreign aide failed ! In manufacturing, a person cannot be corrupt, every sen counts.

    To underscore his arrogance and daring attitude, in the mid-1980s, at the Island Golf Club, Singapore, this same foreign closest aide boasted to the Deputy Prime Minister of Singapore Dr Goh Keng Swee and other PAP associates in front of my cousin that he had the EARS OF THE GOOD AND THE GREAT IN KUALA LUMPUR. In other words, he was touting for business behind his BOSS’s back ! It’s a small World !

    Not only that, the foreign closest aide to the BOSS was sued by an investor in a bank in which he did the same thing as when he was a Director of the Cycle & Carriage Group by selling his bank shares at a low value. It was alleged this foreign closest aide had the support of Dato Seri Najib at the material time.

    THIS FOREIGN CLOSEST AIDE NOW BOASTS COLLECTING STRADIVARIUS VIOLINS AT US$ 4 Million a piece when in 1982 he was collecting Samsonite brief cases for the famous Tan Sri Basir Ismail. He on lends the Stradivarius violins to Shanghai and Singapore but not to the KL Philharmonic. Apparently, his family is in Subang, Selangor.


    THIS WELL-DOCUMENTED CORRUPT ACTIVITIES OF A FOREIGN CLOSEST AIDE CONFIRMS WITHOUT ANY DOUBT that ‘ IT’S THE MAN, NOT THE SYSTEM.’ in all cases of scandals as reported during your 22 year Administration. Their BOSS had nothing to do with them.

    It is good to note that there are no more CLOSEST AIDES THIS TIME.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    Selamat Pulang Ke Tanahair..
    Anakanda ingin melahirkan kesyukuran di atas kepulangan ayahanda Tun lewat petang tadi.

    Alhamdulillah misi ayahanda Tun selama berminggu di London dan New York telah mencapai matlamat yang diingini.


    p/s : Hardtalk masih menanyakan soalan yang sama tentang Israel.. cuma kelainan terkini disentuh isu Najib dan Anwar seperti dijangka..

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Sri Sense,

    Hubby Sri Sense kelantan ye. Saya bukan kelantan. Saya memang asal Terengganu. Makan singgang.

    Perfectionist? Aduyai….tak sangka topik ini pun boleh jadi perbincangan antara orang kenamaan serta bangsawan.

    Terima kasih Tun.

  13. Sri Sense Oct 2,2018 9:18 AM

    Good morning YAB Tun,

    Merujuk kepada twitter antara TMJ dan Syed Saddiq.

    I agree with TMJ. Kita semua tak perfect including Tun. Kalau perfect kita bukan manusia tapi Tuhan 🙂

    Wow! Tun buat semua, tulis speech, tulis blog. I harap Tun bukan admin ya, nanti kena sue pulak. hahaha

    I remember at one time tak silap di India, ramai admin whatsapps group kena cekup. Ada kuasa jadi moderator, tapi either mereka instigate or biarkan apa2 members nak buat dan post disitu.

    I pernah jadi admin whatsapps group, but mine investment group, after awhile I also tak tahan, masing2 ada kepala sendiri, nak buat sesuka hati. I left the group.

    Nak jadi cerita, zaman tu whatsapps main pass the admin post to any ahli, so dapat kat satu kawan, dia punya la marah I, dia ingat I yang kasi position tu. Tapi dia juga tak tahan after a few weeks dia left the group.

    Berbalik pada pemimpin UMNO dulu, actually ada yang versatile, serba boleh. Personality seperti Tun Mahathir, Tan Sri Muhyiddin etc.

    Najib however tidak termasuk dalam category itu. Seperti Pak Lah dia ada sedikit good points, bukan all bad ya!

    Kalau pemimpin itu ada more than 70% good points to me sudah cukup bagus. I pernah kata dulu, bukan semua orang boleh jadi PM. Tanggung jawab itu besar. Temptation juga besar. To be so focus like Tun M nak bina negara amat sukar dilakukan.

    That’s all for now. My big online huggies to Tun M dan Tun Siti.

  14. HBT456 Oct 1,2018 1:19 PM

    What super or supremacy pun tak akan jadi when others follow rules and regulations but they dont need to follow because they are malay and muslim.

    Is it because they are muslim, they must help only muslim by exploiting the non muslim again and again?

    Is it because they are buddhist and non muslim, then they are bad people?

    Sikap rasis dan pilih kasih dah ditekan zaman, jadi busuk atau tidak, it is not relevant anymore.

  15. balance Oct 1,2018 7:40 AM

    WOW Tun you cannot say it any better. The world must wake up if not all will suffer because of 1 shallow and selfish super power. Again the same supremacy ideology that will destroy everything. Thank you

  16. musato Sep 30,2018 8:26 PM

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Entah kenapa isu tahfiz masih orang berkata kata dan memberi pendapat yang sebarangan.

    Pendapat saya. Isu liwat di mana mana ada. Samada tahfiz atau sekolah sekolah menengah yang berasrama.

    Ia berlaku kerana ruang lingkup kehidupan dibataskan dan ia diajar oleh senior termasuk orang dewasa.

    Salah satu bentuk cara belajar ilmu (agama/tasawuf) yang saya lalui dalam pembelajaran melalui kehidupan adalah sememangnya ia adalah diasingkan dari masyarakat.

    Di situ kita akan melakukan perkara perkara yang di luar kebiasaan yang menguji iman dan takwa serta ketahanan mental dan fizikal kita.

    Boleh dikatakan ia seperti latihan komando.

    Kursus asas komando hanya 3 bulan.Tapi pengasingan menimba ilmu ini adalah lebih lama seperti kebanyakan pelajar agama iaitu mungkin 3,5 tahun ke atas.

    Maka proses pembelajaran secara berasrama perlu dikaji lebih teliti dan memerlukan pengawasan yang ketat dan profesional.

    Pusat tahfiz tidak perlu ditutup. Ia cuma wajib mengikut peraturan seperti yang biasa sekolah kerajaan patuhi.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    I say A Big Thank You Tun
    For Dare to Voice regardless of we are not heard
    But you speak it out though Its not a Slap

    World needs UN But if the foundation is Corrupted
    It is Far too Dangerous than having one

    I luv yr saying

    Shame on those who produce and sell weapons
    At the expense of Human Lives
    These people has No Shame,Tun
    They felt they are above the rest
    They felt Superior
    It is when their Loves one suffers
    They will then understand the meaning of Peace and Harmony

    Yet , We Malaysia still need to built ourselves
    Economically and Militarily prepared
    When we are weak , we will be preyed

    It is when Iraq has no WMD , inspected by IAEA
    It is why and then Iraq is invaded
    Likewise US feared North Korea are now Capable
    The very reasons US befriended North Korea today
    North & South Korea will mend their Ties better without US
    World will mend any Ties better without US
    History have proves it all

    Israel are Double Headed Snakes
    They are Spoilt Bred Babies of US
    Very pampered fooling US fooling the World and Misleads UN
    Israel are Big Liars . They Lied too many
    Notes Rohingya , Malawi is supported by Israel
    As Israel tries to melt down every roots of any Islamic foundations
    They go with the Weaker one first
    Like we have seen it starts with Afganistan , then after Iraq,Libay, Syria and the many today .Even Yemen is the plan of them today . Fooling The Idiotic Saudis

    It is design by Israel
    Manufactured by U.S.A
    Marketed by The West
    Fooled by United Nations

    Israel now has ask IAEA to thoroughly Inspect Iran
    Once it is found Iran has No Nuclear Capabilities
    They will trigger US , NATO to Bombard Iran with an excuse
    It has happened in Iraq
    Though Iraq was found has NO WMD
    Iraq was Bombard inhumanly

    I strongly urge for World to restore Peace and Harmony
    Russia ,China , Iran , North Korea and many threats of NATO and perhaps
    Turkey to unite and team up so as to balance up as to restore
    Peace against NATO


    It is The Duty of UNITED NATION Today
    To get every one , starts with US , China , Israel , Russia
    Stops producing Weapon . Stops Threatening each other and The World

    World will never be at Peace when these Weapons productions continues
    These Knowledge ,these Technologies , these Behavior should be put for Human Good use
    than producing Threats & Fear to each other , threatening The World as a Whole

    I suggest if they still wants a WAR
    Let their Leader concerns do the Fight
    If Israel wants Iran
    Let us prepare a Ring
    For Nethanyahu and Iran Leader to Fight
    Let us World see it Live with Popcorn

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,


    They want a Malaysia that is a friend to all and enemy of none.

    A Malaysia that detests and abhors wars and violence.

    Malaysia hates terrorism. We will fight them.

    But we believe that the only way to fight terrorism is to remove the cause.

    Warring against them will not stop terrorism.

    Wars are about killing people.

    Civilised nations claim they abhor killing for any reason.

    But wars, we all know encourage and legitimise killing.

    There is something wrong with our way of thinking, with our value system.

    “Kill one man, it is murder,”

    “Kill a million and you become a hero.”

    Excerpt from Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s speech UNGA 73rd New York.

    p/s : Bravo! The one and only one Prime Minister of Malaysia who doesn’t need a speech writer.. 🙂

    Asaalamualaikum Tun. Saya cuma nak beritahu, terima kasih. Terima kasih kerana menyampaikan suara dan rintihan mereka yang lemah dan dizalimi. Atas usaha Tun menegur dan menyuntik kesedaran dalam kalangan mereka yang berkuasa dan
    masyarakat dunia umumnya terhadap kesengsaraan golongan2 yang dipandang sepi tersebut, yang seringkali dieksploitasi, dinafikan hak untuk bersuara, malah hak untuk hidup dengan aman di tanah air mereka sendiri sekalipun, hanya kerana mereka miskin dan tidak berupaya melawan. Semoga Allah melindungi Tun dan rakan2 seangkatan di seluruh dunia yang memperjuang hak mereka yang lemah dan ditindas.

    It was a wonderful moment when you stood on the rostrum before 180 Nations of the United Nations General Assembly, New York. At that very moment, a historic battle was played out in the Hearing of the US Senate Judiciary Committee concerning the allegations of sexual harassment by Dr Christina Ford against the learned Judge Brett Kavanaugh concerning his quest for a position in the Supreme Court of the United States of America.

    You cut a fine figure as a Leader of a unique country Malaysia. Not only this but your second significant appearance after 16 years in its hallowed halls – a Malaysian Leader – a Malay who can in all conscience tell the World a few facts, impressions and wisdom on the Life of World Politics as we Malaysians see it.

    Your powerful delivery of your humble speech on what your Vision and Things to come for our beloved Malaysia struck a chord in my heart.

    Words like fairness, good governance, rule of law, integrity, equitable share in the prosperity of the wealth of the nation. Simple words with deep meanings and easily forgotten. We Malaysians should remember these words always.

    But between 2004-2018, greed, weakness of the flesh and the soft under-belly overwhelmed our Corrupt and Uncaring BN Leadership which bled our beloved Malaysia nearly to Death.

    Your factual historical description of the Palestinian and Israeli Conflict is unacceptable to some. But to most it was a simple case of robbing another person’s land with the help of powerful friends. Are the Israelis really interested in an eternal Middle East peace in a war-torn land without an end to destruction since 1946 ?

    You are correct to wake-up those Nations who hold the veto in the Security Council after 70 years. Countries like India, Japan, Germany, Brazil, Egypt, Nigeria and South Africa are excluded.

    All in all, your well-thought out Statement of Importance to the World at this juncture is timely, not only for the World but for us Malaysians too, present and the future.

    Hopefully, all Malaysians unite together for the future generations to come instead of watching haplessly the attrition of 3 Generations of elites due to greed, weakness of the flesh and the soft under-belly offered by some sinister types.

    We are now left with one 80 year old Superman from the 1st Generation and a Christ’s (College) man age 40 from the 3rd Generation. We cannot build a creditable Nation this way. We need elites to move forward for progress.

    An ancient saying sums up your Unyielding and Wise Statement to us Malaysians thus,

    ‘ IF YOU DO NOT HAVE PEACE AND HARMONY AT HOME, YOU CANNOT WIN FIGHTING IN THE STREETS.’ Your fine and wonderful family is a good example of this.

    Malaysia Boleh Tun as always !

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    Bravo! Bravo! What a solid piece of speech. Tun has been very consistent. Let the eyes and ears of the UN not only be a witness but also engaging the minds to analyse the situation the world is facing or the person talking. The world can’t stop talking. What actions have they taken to maintain peace, law and order? Tun has talked and spoken. The UN hears but do they listen. The world has become more obsessed to manufacture, to trade and to a-must-have weapons to kill and shamelessly enjoy the dividends from the purveyor of death (Mubarakchan mentioned this many times).

    Tun, you alone can’t change he world but the unique of your job is you get to see the difference you bring to the nation, Malaysia.

    May Allah bless Tun always and protect Tun wherever you are. Take good care of your health Tun and May you lead us for many years to come, InsyaAllah. Thank you Tun.

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Yeah, saya tahu Tun seorang yang tajam fikiran, banyak membaca dan bagus.

    Kali pertama kita berjumpa selepas 2 tahun kita di sini. Saya goncangkan tangan Tun, bila Tun salam dengan saya tapi tak tengok muka saya masa tu. Maafkan saya kerana terkasar dan menyebabkan Tun terpaksa mendongak.

    Perjumpaan pertama kita adalah sebagai tanda terima kasih saya kepada Tun. Kejadian yang berlaku tidak mengejutkan saya bahawa DS Rais Yatim kini bersama pasukan Tun.

    Perjumpaan kita yang terakhir berlaku bilamana saya cuit pergelangan tangan Tun di antara celah celah pengiring Tun yang menyebabkan beliau berundur jauh memberi laluan. Terima kasih.

    Ia berlaku di Muar sempena ulangtahun pertama BERSATU.

    Saya tidak mengeluarkan apa apa patah perkataan pun. Kita hanya bersalam diam. Tujuan saya hanyalah menziarahi rakan perjuangan (jika begitu yang boleh saya anggapkan) dan melihat tahap kesihatan Tun.

    Saya lihat Tun sihat. Jadi saya teruskan.

    Saya boleh katakan menulis lebih mudah dari bercerita di alam nyata. Ia lebih mudah untuk saya fahami kenapa Syeikh Abdul Qadir Al Jailani memanggil manusia itu “wahai celaka!”

    Selepas satu perbincangan semalam, jauh di sudut hati saya sebenarnya saya lebih selesa menerima kenyataan live pakar komunikasi ‘Dozen Person’ di tv1 tak lama dulu bahawa beliau yakin ‘arahan itu’ bukanlah datang dari DS Najib, tapi beliau terpaksa menganggap ia sebegitu.

    Jangan bercakap dengan saya berkenaan agenda peribadi, untung, sebab musabab dunia yang mendorong anda melakukan sesuatu.

    Tiadalah apa apa bagi saya. Kecuali sekadar mengumpul sedikit kenang kenangan dengan adanya tandatangan pada buku dan gambar bersama Tun.

    Saya fikir saya sengaja bergaya dan berpakaian sedemikian, kerana itulah yang membantu kita, dan kita dipertanggungjawabkan. Iaitu RAKYAT. Rakyat biasa biasa.

    Semoga Tun sentiasa sihat dan dalam perlindungan Allah swt sentiasa.

    Terima kasih Tun.

    Assalamualaikum Ayahanda Tun,

    I wish to quote Bonda Tun Dr Siti closing paragraph in her memoir ‘My Name Is Hasmah’ ;

    “Allah SWT has blessed me all these years and has helped me through the ups and downs of life, giving me courage, strength, and most importantly faith in His Guidance and Wisdom as He wakes me up in the morning. Every day is a bonus to an octogenarian, and I think there must be something more that He wants me to do or see, for He is All-Knowing and Most Beneficent.”

    Today 3 years later not only Bonda Tun Dr Siti but we the rakyat were able to see the 7th PM of Malaysia giving historic speech at the 73rd UNGA after he last did it 15 years ago when he was the 4th PM of Malaysia.


    p/s : Looking forward for the 2nd part of the PM’s UK visit and Hardtalk?

    Good morning!

    Thank you admin for sharing this with us.

    I agreed on this issue. As negara Islam dan sebagai rakyat islam kita sentiasa prihatin dengan rakyat Islam diluar sana.

    I teringat baru2 ini, bila duit Turki jatuh, a lot of messages dihantar keliling untuk kita support mata wang turki. Message ada sebut jika beli duit turki sekarang jangan risau boleh guna masa diMekah nanti.

    Happy Saturday! Jangan lupa makan ubat Tun, jangan lupa hugs Tun Siti. 🙂

    Salam YAB dan DiSanjungi PM Tun Dr. Mahathir,

    Syabas Tun!

    Ucapan dan mesej Tun yang amat BERANI memang mengkagumkan.

    Tun seorang Pejuang yang berani bersuara lantang tanpa rasa takut kepada kuasa-kuasa besar dunia, tidak seperti bekas PM yang bacul (maaf cakap) dan suka membodek kuasa-kuasa besar tanpa segan silu (perangai bekas PM yang macam ‘ayam pencen bacul’ telah memakan diri… 🙂 🙂 🙂 ) .

    Terima kasih Tun.

    – Semoga Allah SWT sentiasa merahmati Tun sekeluarga –
