TOTAL VISITORS FROM 2008:

THE FEARS OF KIT SIANG 60

1. I wonder why Lim Kit Siang is so afraid of me. His latest fear is about what he calls “Mahathirism”. I don’t know what is Mahathirism but obviously it conjures in the mind of Kit Siang something fearful. So he has declared his intention to fight Mahathirism.

2. Actually Mahathirism died when Dato Seri (Tun) Abdullah took over from me in 2003. He changed UMNO, the BN and the Government so much that they no longer resemble the institutions I used to know. I had to resign from UMNO.

3. Najib is more friendly but he is not that close to me. He has his own team of advisors. His policies are his own. So why fear Mahathirism. It is dead and gone.

4. Yes, I am active in campaigning for UMNO and the BN. That is because it is payback time. I became Prime Minister because UMNO and BN backed me; and backed me strongly. I owe a debt of gratitude to them. And that gratitude can only be manifested through helping UMNO and BN to be accepted by the people and to win.

5. Of course in backing UMNO and the BN coalition I would be helping my son Mukhriz as well. But why shouldn’t I. I am not the Prime Minister now and certainly I am not in the UMNO Supreme Council or the Barisan Nasional Representative Council.

6. When I was Prime Minister I did not allow my children to play a prominent role in UMNO politics. Certainly they were not allowed to become candidates in any election even though in 2003, when I was about to step down, Tun Khalil Yaacob, as Secretary of UMNO tried to persuade me to allow my son to take over the leadership of Kubang Pasu UMNO. Had I allowed it, he would most likely take my place as member of parliament for my old constituency.

7. My son Mukhriz now has to contest in another constituency led by someone else as division leader. He is not even a division head.

8. If Najib chooses him as a candidate I will campaign for him as I would campaign for other UMNO/BN candidates. After all Kit Siang promoted his son Guan Eng all the way to become Chief Minister of Penang when he was the powerful secretary of the DAP.

9. I don’t care whether he destroys Mahathirism or not. It is an exercise in futility as Mahathirism is a figment of his imagination. He should not be afraid of this toothless tiger figuratively speaking.

    Tun,
    Assalamualaikum, I would be relieved if ‘Mahathirism’ still exist. To my mind, ‘Mahathirism’ means efficiency, punctuality, decisive and keen effort to increase standard (and economy) of the Bumi without depriving the rights of the non Bumi and upholding Islam as the official religion of this country. It’s also an effort to show to the world that Bumiputra is not stupid and lazy. Laziness and stupidity exist regardless of races and religion. Why not? These are the main reasons LKS and LKY are afraid of. For the sake of this country, I hope our PM reads your blog.

    YAB,

    77. http://thestar.com.my/news/story.asp?file=/2012/7/19/nation/11687845&sec=nation

    78. If the Malaya Judge is confident and without prejudice, P. Uthayakumar, being a Hindraft politician, should be charged for sedition act.

    79. Why?

    80. As domestic politician and a lawyer, he should know the consequences of not abiding to common law in Malaysia.

    81. Malaysia dah “Merdeka 55 tahun”, PM Gordon Brown is PM for UK, not PM Malaysia.

    82. If this “batu api politik kecil tidak dipadamkan serta-merta, I am afraid that “lama-lama ia akan jadi satu kebakaran besar yang sukar dipadamkan”.

    83. P. Uthayakumar makan cili pedas, dia lah yang rasa pedas, tak ada orang akan bersimpati dengan nya.

    84. These people are poorer due to their self-centered attitude, sikit2 merajuk, aku pun tahu buat lah.

    85. What is the Judge waiting for?

    86. This is about Malaysia political and economical stability, it’s not a game of Indian politics, pride or prejudice.

    That’s all, YAB.

    Tun

    I am generally agreeable with the comments of Ahmad Badri.

    It is this forum, your Blog, Tun which is so important for all citizens to speak up in the ultimate interest of the Nation – our success or failure in building up the country seriously for ourselves, children, familes and friends and consolidate our political success etc for now and the future.

    It is not a light hearted matter to vote for any one else. Our vote must be for the BN.

    Yes ! We read about scandals daily in the media but most of them are about money which were disbursed under abnormal administrative conditions.

    But the principles of how the Nation and the BN had come into being and administered from the beginning are still not violated per se. But it would be if there is no forthcoming evolution and a return to normality. Definitely and fortunately, revolution is out for Malaysia.

    We are not in 18th Century France with a Bastille to boot.

    The UMNO is fundamental to the Nation known as Malaysia as we know it. Without the participation of UMNO in the Government in any guise or form is like having a party without a host. It is as simple as that.

    The Opposition has to make themselves credible and able to deliver in comparison with UMNO’s long history of service and loyalty to the Malays and Bumiputeras and partnering the other major non-Bumiputera parties to share power at the top of the Malaysian power pyramid – which was for more than 60 years.

    For the younger folks who were born in the last few decades, I suggest it will serve the Nation well if they are conversant with the history of colonial and post-colonial Malaya in order they too share the experiences of their parents and forefathers.

    The PR is a brand new group with the sole purpose of unseating the BN now in Putrajaya.

    It consists of the DAP which was inspired by Lee Kuan Yew who may be found wanting in his rule of Singapore in time, the PKR a party with members who were once strongly aligned with UMNO but lost in the power struggle for the Prime Ministership and PAS which has policies of its very own and not in keeping with at least those of the DAP !

    In other words, to put it simply, the change of any Government without a just cause will be full of uncertainties especially in an already stable, harmonious and prosperous Malaysia with a diverse population of many communities.

    Promises are just not good enough.

    It is not like changing a set of clothes – clean ones for dirty ones.

    It is not easy to change a Government which has tried to provide its citizens for over 50 years with jobs, housing, education etc and a full stomach and pockets – short of a revolution.

    A proper course of action for the Rakyat and the Nation is evolution and not revolution with demonstrations of force in the streets, bigger and bigger all the time, masking true democracy without letting the Rakyat know what tomorrow will bring – peace or chaos.

    For those who know the World, there are not many examples like the Malaysia of today even though the detractors have been shouting themselves hoarse to magnify the many money wrong doings of the BN Government.

    But in their heart of hearts, they must surely realise without the BN they too might not have been given so much leeway to demonstrate on extraneous issues on the highways and the by-ways.

    So why is the Opposition apparently so strong with only 6 leaders of note ? The answer is money. Tons of it.

    A veteran politician once told me that RM 20 Million would create a lot of mischief to the Government. And to underline this fact, the Chinese towkays financed the 1954 Alliance elections and won with just $450,000 !

    Political electioneering leading up to a General Election is now a multi-billion ringgits core industry of Malaysia in the practice of democracy the Malaysian Way, just like any other Western democracy.

    A good question is why very rich Opposition political families plunge headlong into Malaysian politics against the BN dinosaur ? This is the RM 64,000 question. Or is it a gamble ?

    Whatever it is, the fables and foibles will pan themselves out at the next General Elections which is the 13th. A lucky number for some but may not be for many others.

    It was the free-wheeling devil may care attitude of the BN since 2003 which gave an apparent image of weakness compounded by the internal weaknesses of senior partners of the non-Bumiputera parties which had been taking a free ride coupled with bus-men’s holidays at the expense of UMNO and the Rakyat since Merdeka that has caused the ruckus at the present time.

    These non-UMNO parties were not practising realpolitik,

    Take the case of a major non-Bumiputera party, it had only one qualified leader since Merdeka and he was dropped because he was too big for his shoes !

    In order for these non-Bumiputera parties to be effective, these have to work twice as hard and be like Caesar’s wife to be beyond reproach. At least in one political party which I knew best, these two virtues did not exist or never happened. It is going to be a hard uphill task, chaps !

    This is what the BN is about – when a party falters, the other takes up the slack. Always alert. Always ready to bolster the defences of the fort !

    And do not forget not to leave the ammo at home ! Because in the heat of battle, please do not have dissension amongst yourselves who was responsible for this short-sightedness !

    Malaysian Chinese and all Malaysians, as the tales and stories of the Malaysian political scenario unfold, you will find that the BN is always like an onion with the UMNO at its core. Think hard ! Think deep !

    It is our duty as responsible and loyal citizens to vote BN to preserve the whole onion which is our beloved Malaysia.

    No more ! No less !

    DAP sudah menghancurkan banyak tanah Melayu di Penang
    Dengan Pembangunan mereka secara lansung akan mengusir orang Melayu ke tepi
    Ini format LKY di Singapura
    Tanah Cina akan di biarkan
    Tanah Melayu akan disingkir konon untuk pembangunan
    Lama kelamaan Melayu Penang akan merempat

    Perhatikan dalam Pelihan Raya
    Calon DAP yg bukan orang Melayu
    Akan berhujah dalam bahasa melayu semasa Himpunan Rally
    Walau mereka bertutur pelat
    Untuk mengambil hati melayu
    Sebab
    Lebih pandai mereka bolih cakap Melayu
    Lebih banyak mereka akan Tipu Melayu

    Jadi si Melayu ni janganlah terpedaya
    Kamu akan tertipu apabila DAP berkuasa kelak
    Seperti hidup orang melayu di Singapura
    Yang Merempat di Tanah Sendiri
    Orang Melayu ibarat the last Citizen

  5. AHMAD BADRI Jul 16,2012 10:10 PM

    Dear Tun,

    Lim KS’s creation of Mahathirism is another sly fox’s cunning agenda. Anyone worth his salt can smell where the fox is trying to lead us to. It’s an old trick created by Lee Kuan Yew. Start something to create arguments, and attack the defence system. That’s what he did with Malaysian Malaysia, and he got Singapore.

    Years ago after we got our independence, the Chinese demanded that mandarin be the national language of this country. And that’s after the Malay spring of 1946. Ridiculous as it was, they got what they wanted – Chinese schools, lots of Government money to build them, Chinese special rights to land and property ownership, cultural and heritage rights to be practiced freely in their new “homeland”, something no other country in the world gives away to immigrants brought in by the colonials. It was a courtesy of the kind hearted Tunku, who never consulted the Malays in whatever rights he was going to let the immigrants have. Those days UMNO was called “U Must Not Oppose” the Tunku. That’s why in later days, most Malays couldn’t careless about the Tunku.

    The Chinese were so overconfident that in 1969 they demanded the Malays to go back to the jungle. They wanted this country to themselves. To them the Malays are as the same level as the Native American Indians in USA or the aborigines in Australia. To them, the Malays were too stupid and could easily be manipulated. We could see where Lee Kuan Yew’s hands were in these. Now Lim KS is nothing more than the person to carry out Lee KY’s agenda is controlling the Malay nation.

    By getting the greedy Anwar and that stupid old monk from Kelantan on his side, he is getting his way quite easily. The whole idea is to kill off the Malays, and do what Lee KY did in Singapore, to break up the Malays into Javanese, Bugis, Rawa, Achinese etc, and now the Malay race in Singapore is officially dead.

    As obvious to everyone, the old Kelantan monk is very good at dividing the Malays. His followers even drink the water used to wash off his feet. They think he is almost at the same level as the Prophet. He even promised heaven to those who join his political party and do what he says. And Anwar knows all the tricks in the book to round up the historically ignorant and ungrateful young Malays to his side. Lim even got Dolah Bedawi the idiot to kill off everything that was linked to Dr Mahathir’s works and efforts – in national development, racial integration, nation building etc. Lim KS got what he wanted. The next step is to create something to make sure Mahathir has no more influence among the Malays. Thus he created Mahathirism – to him something that is equal to horror, injustice, cruelty, and something that needs to be killed off. After the labeling, he will go off marketing. He has succeeded with the PAS and PKR followers.

    You just look closely at his face. When Lim smiles, it’s a very happy fox. He is getting what he wants. With the support of PAS and Anwar, Lee KY has never been so happy. But we native Malays are just getting fed up.

  6. cakkuncak Jul 16,2012 7:33 AM

    Dear Tun,

    Kit Siang used to only dreamed of ever having the chance to ‘impose’ his opposing views for the rakyat to consider.

    My wish is his views will never be accepted by the majority of this nation simply because it is more destructive rather than constructive.

    Having said that, you would probably be the best person to know in what state of readiness UMNO is right now in its ability to convince the rakyat that it can still champion for the people, that it will rid itself of corrupt leaders, that it has waken up to the fact that it can never shortchanged the rakyat again with similar ‘you-owe-us’ slogans and that it is seriously decided to do what is necessary to improve itself.

    Politicians the likes of Kit Siang would never be considered if UMNO is the real UMNO of before …

  7. MiddleAges Jul 16,2012 3:43 AM

    Salam Tun,

    my response to anak_patriot please.

    Dear Middle Ages,

    There shouldn’t be any issue with old type medicine if it’s working effectively.

    That is a big IF. How is it that BN formula is said to be working when our society is simply cracking up ? People are not truly happy, everyone pretends to be happy, for the sake of being able to earn a living. When they achieve “success”, you see the hatred full blown. It’s sheer madness, in the name of patroitism ?

    Truly successful people are happy people who wants to see others happy too, regardless of race or skin colour. The ones who are “rich” here, are not so rich in terms of inter-personal skills and humanitarian values, i.e. they are rich only in material wealth, very poor in all other department. What comes around goes around.

    In fact we should be worry about new untested but “glorified” medicine posed upon us. This new medicine seems to create so many side effects which are dangerous if not deadly.

    If this argument is used, no human civilization can ever advance. This “it has not been tested” or “we are unique” arguments are false. We are not unique, merely stub-born. We insist there is only one road, all other roads are deemed wrong or untested. History however, teaches otherwise. Records, especially religious historical records, show that society and civilization can in fact decline, when there is a mad clamour for gold. Such a society has little to offer in terms of humanitarian values, and is a kind of money seeking monster we are becoming. It has become difficult just to live !

    To ask people to opt for change, then the offer must be better that the existing option.

    Certainly, and most of the offerings are better options.

    It’s very irresponsible for us to ask the rakyat to change govement simply because BN has rules more that 50 years? I’m all for change and I do agree BN and UMNO has bad practices but hey I just do not see PR as a better option, seriously. So, until Malaysians are offered a better option, We should all stick with BN.

    I disagree. It is in fact irresponsible if we sit back and do nothing but watch all the plundering and mismanagement going on. There is no point complaining to the government of the day, they religiously believe they are doing right and good. It is only when things explode in their face will they perhaps realize they did wrong, and i say perhaps because some people just cannot see any wrong in whatever they do. The arabic term is Ad-Dajjal i think. Dia makan orang punya pun masih dia kata okay lagi, in the name of patroitism. I call it blind devotion.

    PR rule will not have a single good thing for Malaysian exspecially the Malay, period.

    The PR formula allows Malays to stand tall in the world as one human race and civilisation able to contribute to common human progress in a peaceful harmonious manner, promoting Islam as key to new science and enlightenment, putting Malays back in the world map as world renowned adventurers and sailors we once were, thereby gaining recognition and acceptance as world class participants in human progress and spirit.

    Now, what spirit does the BN camp bring ? ( other than Malay, Chinese, Indian, as if nothing else matters in life ? )

    So i maintain my support for the PR recipe, i am only saddened PAS is bringing forth a very ancient and emotional based Islam, which is not going to do anyone any good, because the real power of Islam comes from the realization that it is God’s laws that is above all, and that divine laws can only be discovered through Science, such laws cannot be created and neither can it be destroyed.

    Until we hit that critical mass of scientific enlightenment, we ain’t going nowhere, politically or religiously.

    I am no longer interested in Malay political power, that is already proven. I am more interested in being able to proclaim to the world that i’m a Malay Malaysian, and the world acknowledges it as representing a beloved and highly respectible human race in this corner of the world. Apa macam ?

    Thank You Tun

    Toothless Tiger like Tun are Harmless
    Proven Never Did He Even instill his son for Power
    An indications He is rational, demostrates his Meritrocracy

    LKY preeches Meritrocracy many times to Malaysia
    To boast as Compare us between them
    But he himself did not demostrates democracy in his own Govt
    His son sits on his post, he creates another post such as to
    sustains the Lee Dynasty

    DAP will very level make their difference initially
    And they will frame Malaysian
    Once they are in control

    DAP Chinese election candidates will speak Malay during
    The Voting
    To win the Malay majority
    Once Lim Kit Siang in power
    He will Criticise the malay are Improvidence
    Lazy community
    As much seen in LKY national speech

    During Election Rally DAP non Malay will speak Malay
    To win the vote even thay are PELAT
    Because
    Lebih pandai mereka cakap melayu
    Lebih banyak mereka akan tipu melayu

  10. RD. Jul 14,2012 6:33 PM

    Selamat Hari Jadi Tun.

    Saya amat hairan mengapa PAS boleh berkerjasama dengan DAP yang ternyata paling racist di Malaysia. Saya pernah bersembang dengan seorang penyokong PAS. Mereka percaya di akhir zaman umat Islam akan dibantu Allah untuk memerangi Yahudi. Katanya kita akan kejar Yahudi untuk di bunuh. Jika mereka menyorok belakang batu atau pokok, batu dan pokok itu akan berkata, ‘Ada Yahudi menyorok di belakang aku’. Apakah bodoh sekali kepercayaan ini. Semacam berperang 1400 tahun dahulu. Perang di zaman moden hanya dengan tekan butang beribu batu jauh. Kita tidak akan tahu siapa dan apa yang kita mungkin bunuh atau cederakan.

    Mungkin fikiran kita telah menjadi terlalu sempit dan jumud untuk berfikir secara logic oleh kerana sistem atau dengan cara kita di ajar dalam beragama. Saya ambil contoh berikut yang saya perhatikan pada tingkat-laku anak-anak saya:-

    1). Anak saya darjah 2 >Cikgu beritahu pada kelasnya, ‘Jangan mencuri. Di akhirat nanti, Allah akan potong tangan’. Saya rasa mengajar cara begini adalah salah.
    Kanak-kanak zaman sekarang sudah terdedah kepada berbagai cerita cartoon di TV. Mereka berkemungkinan besar menganggap ia sebagai perkara biasa lihat di TV, dan boleh disambung kembali.
    Bukankah lebih sesuai dan berkesan jika Guru kata, ‘Jangan ambil barang orang, tak baik. Kalau orang ambil barang kita, apa kita akan rasa?’
    Dengan cara ini kita juga boleh mengajar anak2 kita berfikir secara critical.

    2). Anak yang Tingkatan 3 mengatakan bahawa semua dosa akan terhapus bila kita mengerjakan Haji. Saya menyatakan mungkin dosa antara kita dengan Allah saja terhapus, bukan dosa sesama manusia.
    Perkara sebegini akan menyebabkan anak-anak berani melakukan dosa seperti mencuri. Kecil jadi pencuri. Bila besar boleh jadi peragut, menyamun & merompak. Bila dekat nak mati pergi haji, semua dosa boleh dibersihkan.

    3). Anak yang sama, semasa Tingkatan 2, mengatakan Allah sedang menembak syaitan & iblis apabila terdengar petir. Abangnya, yang bersekolah rendah di SRJK(C), ketawa. Saya tanya, dia beritahu Ustazah di sekolah yang cakap. Saya dan abangnya ajar kembali bagaimana Allah jadikan dan mengapa kita lihat kilat dahulu baru dengar petir kemudian.

    4). Jangan ajar anak-anak mengenai ‘akhir zaman’ atau hari kiamat. Ini hanya sesuai di ajar di peringkat menengah, apabila mereka sudah mampu berfikir secara kritikal. (Ataupun jangan di sentuh langsung topic ini di sekolah).
    Contoh: Apabila guru bercerita mengenai kiamat, dunia akan hancur..>>> murid boleh bertanya: hancur sebesar mana, bumi & bulan saja kah? Lain-lain planet hancur juga kah? Cakerawala kita saja kah? Termasuk semua bintang-bintang di langit kah?

    Apabila kita terlampau taksub dengan akhir zaman kita akan hanya tumpukan buat bekalan akhirat saja dan tinggalkan semua hal duniawi kecuali sex. Beranak-pinak seperti biasa. Bila ada orang mengaku dirinya sebagai Imam Mahdi, dengan mudah kita percayai. Sanggup bunuh diri untuk masuk syurga.

    Dalam bidang astronomy, jangkamasa 100 tahun, dianggap terlalu pantas, bagaikan sekelip mata saja.
    Kalau ‘akhir zaman’ 100 atau 200 tahun lagi baru nak kiamat, macam mana?
    Ketika itu; Orang Melayu > Ramai jadi Ustaz/Ustazah & Ulama. Masjid kena bina banyak2. Kalau tidak, orang Islam terlalu ramai yang hanya belajar agama, nak kerja apa. Ada masjid UMNO dan ada masjid PAS, pula. Lebih banyak Mazhab & fahaman muncul kerana berbeza pandangan, kerana banyak Ulama nak cari makan. Kita dok bunuh sesama sendiri, hang bom masjid aku, aku bom masjid hang. Semua pakat nak tunjuk yang mereka lebih Islam dari orang lain. Jadi macam orang Arab la pulak.

    Bangsa & agama lain bertambah ramai menjadi; Doktor, Saintis, Engineer, Architec, Professor, Lawyer, Hakim @ PM.
    Kita hanya tinggal Raja2, kot. Baginda semua pun mungkin dah jadi Ulama, kerana nak hidup.

    Yahudi & Christian pun percayakan kiamat, tetapi tindak-tanduk mereka kelihatan tidak mundur kebelakang seperti kita. 100 tahun lagi mereka mungkin akan berjaya mereka-cipta kapal angkasa untuk cuba lari daripada kiamat. Sekarang ni pun mereka sedang cari planet lain yang ada air.

    5). MEMBERUS GIGI adalah untuk membuang sisa makanan yang terlekat pada gigi selepas makan. Sisa makanan ini akan mereput dan jika tak dibersihkan dari celah gigi akan menyebabkan gigi rosak & bau mulut yang busuk.
    Anak di sekolah di ajar: “Bangun pagi berus gigi”. Cara ini SALAH.
    Dengan cara ini anak-anak di ajar berus gigi untuk menghilangkan bau busuk mulut selepas bangun tidur. Jika kita berus gigi sebelum tidur, tiada lagi sisa makanan atau tahi gigi, mulut tidak akan bau busuk bila bangun tidur.
    Cara yang betul: Berus gigi selepas makan atau Berus gigi sebelum tidur. Ajarlah anak cara ini terutamanya yang sudah salin gigi kekal. Nafas mereka akan bau segar & gigi tahan lama & tidak rosak.

    Tun

    It is time to compare a true Malaysian hero and others.

    Some responsible and educated leaders of our society have made fun of you by coining the word ‘ Mathathirism ‘ and think they can get away with it.

    By this act, it is in fact a devious and subtle comparison with the awe-inspiring Lee Kuan Yew.

    Slowly, slowly the true story of this personality will unfold as worshipped and kow-towed as great and super by some Malaysian Chinese and maybe a few Bumiputras.

    I do not know how many Singaporeans will worship him in time as Lee Kuan Yew’s true story unfolds !

    Lee Kuan Yew went up to Cambridge University and entered it through the backdoor of Fitzwiliam House in 1947 – a time of great hardship and deprivation in post-war Britain which had just achieved victory in a horrific war with Hitler. The inhabitants were shell-shocked and food was rationed. They were still in this mode 10 years later. It was only with the Beatles that the British could have a bit of fun and relaxation by the 1960s – a good 20 years after the end of the War in Europe in May 1945 !

    It was against this back-drop of a disadvantaged society that Lee Kuan Yew turned up and achieved his brilliant law results of Double First. He had plenty of time to read law books under the eagle eyes of the Japanese who were his bosses at his work place – this was for at least three and a half years whilst his fellow British Cambridge undergraduates were at the killing fields of Western Europe, disposing of the Wehrmacht ! By the time, these war weary veterans of killing Germans returned to the cloisters of beautiful Cambridge, they had no inclination or heart or will to compete against Lee Kuan Yew whom I am quite certain the Professors found such a charming and glib Chinaman arising from the smoke and debris of wartime Britain- (in fact, he had three and a half years of rest and peace). After all, they were human with compassion. At this time they were not the best that were available but a hotch-potch of undergrads admitted under the terms of being a former soldier.

    Cambridge had a unique marking system which was more or less like the Bell Curve – even if all achieved 100 marks, it does not mean all the candidates will be awarded the First Class.

    The very best of undergraduates only slowly built up from this point over many years. And these later undergraduates were the very best of Britain – the creme de la creme. From a few in Lee Kuan Yew’s time, the classes became hundreds of the very best of Britain by the 1950s.

    Hence, Lee Kuan Yew’s children never attempted the Law course at Cambridge but only the Engineering course in which 1 + 1 is always equal 2. It is well nigh impossible to beat the best of the British in his own written English during normal peace-time conditions.

    His two brothers who also entered the Fitzwilliam House had normal results only a few years later.

    Lee Kuan Yew was fortunate and blessed to achieve the best results at the Law Tripos, Cambridge. He was the man at the right place and at the right time !

    But did he achieve the lst place at the Bar Finals ( the professional law examination which all lawyers must sit ) London thereafter ?

    As far as I know, his wife was actually more brilliant and was placed 3rd in the Bar Finals out of at least 300. My wife was placed 7th out of 700. There is no mention of Lee Kuan Yew any where of his achievements at the Bar Finals – maybe he achieved a Third Class.

    Lee Kuan Yew with his one off academic brilliance could managed to influence and impose his charisma and will on at least 2 generations of Singaporeans and Malaysian Chinese. But he would have achieved greatness if he had only kept away from power absolutely at 65. This he failed to do so.

    And as a result, what he tried to push earnestly to be a world class leader, he failed miserably in the light of recent events thus :-

    1. The failure of the 2 child policy of Singapore in the 1970s and the 1980s with the concomitant forced reduction of mainly the Species Singaporean Sinensis. The result of this failure became apparent after Lee Kuan Yew assumed a higher post at 65 over 20 years ago. And a possible breach of Clause 16 of the United Nations Universal Charter for Human Rights.

    Why was there no squeak from the NGOs world wide ?

    2. The blood-stained Foreign Policy of Singapore and her purported investments world wide. Was she the cats-paw of some Super power ?

    Vide. Regional news of ASEAN countries.

    3. The surprising loss of US$ 108 Billions of the citizens Trust money on Wall Street which was invested in lesser institutions by the much vaunted meritocratic pyramid in October 2008. If US$ 108 Billions worth of equities were bought, US$ 108 Billions could be sold making up a total of US$ 216 Billions both ways. This was roughly the official figure.

    Vide. Channelnewsasia Lee Kuan Yew November 2008. All Singaporean Blogs 2009 – 2012. Financial Times, London. Gllian Tett. ‘ Singapore’s Harvard Model ‘ April 2010.

    How can a sovereign state copy a university investment model ? This is beyond my simple mind.

    4. The life-style and wealth of the ruling elite.

    Vide. The sale of Kim Eng Securities to Maybank.
    The importation of pigs into Singapore.

    It is good, very good Tun that the over-zealous admirers of Lee Kuan Yew and their ilk rally around their purported icon and idol at the present time and the near future when more will unfold on how a personality could use a one-off brilliant academic achievement to influence and cajoled 2 generations of Singaporeans and some Malaysian Chinese who should have known better.

    Did these undying supporters gain anything from Lee Kuan Yew at the end of the day ?

    The history of your 22 year Administration is a much more remarkable achievement by you for the Bumiputras and all the non-Bumiputras if only the real facts of Lee Kuan Yew and the Singaporeans are transparent and available like at the present time.

    A big advantage to Singapore was the complete absence of news about each other on both sides of the Causeway since 1965 to Malaysia’s disadvantage eg. politics, economics, stock exchange etc.

    Suddenly with the Web, all which was concealed, is now revealed.

    Tun, you had the compassion to see the 22 year Administration through successfully and now you can see very clearly those who are for you, their loyalty to the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and Nation and others.

    Compassion, commonsense and the ability to think out of the box were your unique hallmarks in the 22 years Administration which Lee Kuan Yew cannot beat even with his utmost determination. And in fact, Dr Goh Keng Swee had all these 3 Golden Attributes but not Lee Kuan Yew.

    DAP which finds its inspiration and motivation based on one person only. Lee Kuan Yew, will find that the raison d’etre for their existence now in jeopardy with the awakening of the Singaporeans that their once great leader may have misled them like the Pied Piper of Hamelin or has feet of clay by his mistakes.

    It is not proper for Lim Kit Siang to poke fun at others who are greater – people living in glasshouses should not throw stones at others.

    Instead he should spend time reflecting whether he had spent his political life usefully in the service of the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Nation or did something else ! Everyone makes mistakes. But by joining the BN even at this stage, he would heroically done himself, his family and the whole country a great service and a hero especially for the Malaysian Chinese who are now up a pole. Why fight for others ?

    Tun, your greatness is your compassion and love of our beloved country Malaysia and her Rakyat not in terms of money unlike Lee Kuan Yew who built a modern temple of money without a heart and soul, but in terms of your achievements sincerely to create a better life and environment for all Malaysians, Bumiputras and non-Bumiputras.

    Facts are facts.

    This should be so for a great leader and Malaysian hero. No more. No less.

    Again I appeal to all Malaysian Chinese and all Malaysians that charity begins at home, right here in Malaysia. Vote only for BN and forget about all the vulgar, dirty, obscene etc remarks about our real leaders. These words are harmless if you ignore them.

    Let us all debunk the saying ‘ Who pays the Piper, calls the tune !’

    Tun

    The longer the expectations of a General Election are dragged on, the better your Administration of 22 years of our beloved country will be shown to be as compared to how the local folks had benefited, as compared to your Foreign Policy which extended the country’s help sincerely to the disadvantaged in Africa, parts of Middle East and West Asia, and as compared to how the Bumiputras and all non-Bumiputras rose socio-economically from an agragrian economy up to an industrial tier to bounce up to the Vision 2020.

    If this period of Malaysia’s endeavour is called by the Opposition as Mahathirism, let us have more of it unlike the long waiting period which the Rakyat endured since 2003 – Nihilism or was it the dead cat bounce ?

    Developing nations must carry on developing which carries the momentum of growth in keeping with population growth and expectations.

    But in Malaysia’s case, inaction since 2003 was masked by the strong exports of petroleum and agricultural products and the economic thrust from Tun’s 22 years of Administration which the detractors now deride as ‘Mahathirism’ – please wipe your mouths after eating the tasty ‘Mahathirism’ cake !

    With name calling and jingoism (smoke screen) abound in the current rough and tumble melee with no holds barred leading up to the next General Elections, we must separate the wheat from the chaff or the wood from the trees in the hutan.

    That is the real good that has come out of the famous 22 years of Administration and has now shown the Malaysian way of democracy and socio-economic benefits which had accrued to the Rakyat since 2003. And to the consternation of the Opposition, this fall-out is still walking, proud, tall and strong. Woe to the inheritors if they could not handle the many balls in the air now in play and deliver the Rakyats’ expectations ! In fact, they dropped a few balls in 2008 !

    The finest infrastructure put up during the 22 years of Administration is the network of highways and roads. No one can deny this. These are the sinews of the country. Unfortunately, Tun, you could not replicate your 22 years of Administration by grafting deserving personalities into the Government. And from my observation, you had to cajole from the sidelines until your voice is hoarse.

    You could easily have retired to the South of France and spent time at Knightsbridge, London – And the other more famous watering place called Perth with all the Sime Darby faciltities ( at one time, these were in the Sandestin Golf and Holiday Resort, Florida, U.S.A ) ! To the consternation of the Opposition, you did not.

    Hence, the Opposition is upset !

    To the disappointment of your home-grown ersatz vocal critics, and because of your inborn compassion and honourable will and concern for the Rakyat, you deservedly stayed around with us to see the country will function and move forward in mighty steps as you had envisaged. There is nothing wrong with this. And there is always time for fun and games !

    This is no small deal.

    Malaysia has to survive according to the wishes of those who came before us in 1946 and 1957 !

    Once again, Malaysians and Malaysian Chinese, it is not a shame to vote BN. In fact, it is full of merit and no demerit. Scandals are all over the world every day and night as long as there is man and there is woman.

    This is a fact of life.

    Asslamu’alaikum Tun

    izinkan saya mengucapkan terimakasih kpd saudara PAShit.tulisan anda bukan saja menyegarkan kembali ingatan kita kpd sejarah Negara malah membuka luas mata kita untuk mengenal-pasti anjing tersepit jenis apa kah yg sedang kita hadapi.

    dan juga menolak propaganda perkauman Lee kuanyew yg dgn media-media yg dikuasai nya yg memutar-belit peristiwa sebenar dgn menyalahkan Umno dan orang Melayu di atas pertumpahan darah 13 May 1969.

    baik di Channel News Asia mahupun buku-buku LKY serta keseluruhan media-media yg mereka kuasai di Singapura dan Malaysia,fakta sebenar 13 May di ubah sama sekali untuk menunjukkan pemimpin-pemimpin Umno seperti Allahyarham Datuk Jaafar Albar dan Tun sendiri sebagai bersikap perkauman.

    padahal anjing-anjing tersepit ini lah yg dgn sikap tamak mereka memulakan sengketa.

    saya rasa kita perlu menyebarkan kisah sebenar 13 May ini seluas-luas nya.anak-anak cucu kita perlu tahu tentang perangai sebenar kaum pendatang yg tak boleh di buat baik ini.

    setiap gonggong dan salak mereka,walau yg paling perlahan seperti HBT,harus kita teliti dgn penuh curiga.sebab naluri mereka penuh dgn ketamakkan yg tidak berhujung.

    sekali lagi saya ucapkan terimakasih kpd saudara PAShit.untuk pengetahuan saudara,saya wajibkan anak-anak dan menantu,anak-anak saudara berserta cucu-cucu saudara saya membaca article ini.

    ini penting sebab kita tak mahu tertipu lagi oleh anjing tersepit yg kita lepaskan dari kebuluran,kita beri makan lalu berbalik hendak membaham kita pula.

    mudah-mudahan Allah SWT memberkati kita dgn seorang Pemimpin yg berani membetulkan keadaan dan menghentikan kegilaan pemimpin-pemimpin kita yg tak henti-henti mencurah bakti kpd orang-orang asing dgn jalan mengorbankan hak-hak kita.

    terimakasih Tun

    I understand Lim Kit Siang Fears
    For me If i see a Tiger,much more I have never see a toothless
    Tiger, I definately faint
    These toothless Tiger
    They can whistle when they brush their teeth

    Dear Malaysia
    We are lucky under UMNO ruling we still progress
    Under the Malay leader ruling they did not fists our lifes
    We develop but not as aggresive as the PAP in Singapore
    But it,s OK I strongly say it,s much much much more better
    DAP will be like PAP
    They will progress faster
    But remember when they are in control

    We will be their honorable slaves
    Like the Singaporean
    Singapore is Rich
    But Singapore are poor in many ways compared to us
    Most Malaysian that ever work there experienced and acknowledge Malaysia is a better place

    We have our freedom here
    They don,t
    Even Dogs are not allowed to bark there
    DAP will be PAP
    And we don,t want these PAP style here
    It looks clean but too clean to believes
    And we don,t want to be DAP
    Honorable slaves
    Like the Singaporean
    Lives to work
    And give the govt

    When we die We Don,t want to die with a Serial number
    Lives like A Product Of PAP
    We want to die by name with respect
    As Rakyat Malaysia

    SalamTun,

    1. Zaman sekarang ni Tun, nak tengok wayang kene bernikah dulu. Kalau saya kata orang2 agama bodoh, mereka marah. Tapi kalau buat undang2 bodoh, bodoh lah tu maknanya, bukan ?

    2. Betul kata Tun, marriage of convenience antara PAS dan Keadilan/DAP hanya merugikan kita orang Malaysia. Saya dari dahulu lagi kata PAS kene keluar dari PR. Dorang cuba masuk UMNO, lagi lah tak kena. PAS sebenarnya sesuai disurau/mesjid sahaja.

    3. Saya tak faham logic, sekumpulan orang ingin sangat masuk syurga, jadi orang lain tak boleh pergi tengok wayang dengan girlfriend/boyfriend. Apa kene mengena dia nak masuk syurga dengan saya tengok wayang ? Kalau saya kata mereka ini tak lulus sekolah, marah pulak. Dah lah tak lulus, nak memerintah pulak, berat lah Tun.

    4. Kalau macam nih, saya rasa Amin Tan lagi baik jadi Pemerintah, dia cuma suruh saya mengucap, baca Quran, tak mengapa kalau dia suruh macam itu, asal jangan buat undang2 bodoh dan berat sebelah ( undang2 untuk “Muslim” sahaja ).

    5. Dek kerana PAS nih, sokongan saya pada PR pun mula susut. Walau pun Keadilan dan DAP tetap parti pujaan hatiku, namun racun PAS sangat berbisa, sekali kena bisa selama lamanya.

    6. Saya pun kene pakai plan B nampaknya, Plan A PAS dah telan, dorang buat ulam raja. Saya tunggu ke arah mana Tun menghala, sebab Tun ramai yang ikut.

    Terima Kasih Tun

    salam Tun,

    well what can I say about LKY’s former press secretary….hmm except that he NEVER APOLOGISED TO THE MALAYSIAN PUBLIC for the seditious remarks he uttered on 13 May 1969!

    Pada 9 Mei 1969 di Kuala Lumpur, perarakan membawa mayat melalui Kuala Lumpur dan menyebabkan jam, melaungkan slogan ‘Malai Si’ (Melayu Mati) dan slogan ‘Mao Zedong’ termasuk hutang darah dibayar darah.

    Pada 10 Mei 1969, Pulau Pinang tumbang, nyaris kalah di Selangor dan Perak. Beberapa kerusi Parlimen tumbang kepada DAP dan GERAKAN.

    Perarakan kemenangan dibuat pada 11 Mei 1969 di jalan BrickfieldS pada pukul lima petang. Dia kata apa? “Apa polis boleh buat? Kita Raja,buang semua polis Melayu”.

    Pada 11 Mei 1969 pukul 8.30 malam di Jalan Bukit Bintang, perarakan DAP – “Mati Melayu, sakai pergi masuk hutan”.

    Pada 11 Mei 1969 pukul 10.00 malam di Jalan Changkat Dollah – “KL sekarang Cina punya”.

    Pada 12 Mei 1969, satu perarakan di Jalan Ipoh, Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, Jalan Parlimen, Jalan Raja Laut, Jalan Hill masuk ke Kampung Baru dengan 500 skuter. Apa mereka kata? “Melayu balik kampung, Melayu sudah tiada kuasa. Sekarang kita Cina control.” Bila lalu depan Kampung Baru mereka kata “Melayu keluar! Apa lagi duduk sini, kita hentam sama lu, sekarang kita ada kuasa”.

    Pada 12 Mei 1969 pukul 7.30 petang di pondok polis Jalan Pudu – “Maki polis! Semua Melayu kasi habis, kasi halau semua polis.”

    Pada 12 Mei 1969 pukul 8.30 malam di Jalan Bukit Bintang – “Apa ini Melayu, kita sudah perintah dia negeri, ini negeri bukan Melayu punya, mata-mata lancau.”

    Pada 12 Mei 1969 pukul 7.00 petang di Jalan Canvel – “Butoh Melayu, Malai si, pergi mati Melayu.”

    Pada malam 12 Mei 1969 di Jalan Bukit Bintang – “Ini negeri bukan Melayu punya, kita mahu kasi halau semua Melayu.”

    Pada awal tengah malam 13 Mei 1969 di Kampung Baru – “Maki orang Melayu, Melayu balik hutan.”

    Pada 12 Mei 1999, 9.30 malam, PJ. – “Sekarang kita perintah apa boleh buat? Melayu balik kampung. Melayu sudah jatuh, MARA boleh keluar. Melayu balik kampung, MARA hendak beri habis.” Tuan Yang di-Pertua, ini yang berlaku pada masa itu.

    Tun, Lim Kit Siang is afraid of “Mahathirism” is because he and his cohorts knows that Mahathirism will put them back in their correct place.

    As you says, Tun Abdullah who took over from you in 2003 changed UMNO, the BN and the Government so much that he didnt realise the mistakes that he had made.

    I have a story to tell.Once upon a time a bussinessman by the name Ahmad Albab falls asleep.In his sleep he had had a dream that he found a bottle while hearding a flock of sheeps.Albab’s was so happy with the bottle that he pulled the stopper from the bottle without knowing there are jinnees in it.

    The jinnees cries of happiness being out of the bottle could be heard miles away and of course they are gratefull to their new master Ahmad Albab.

    It didnt took them long to realise of their new master’s shortcomings and weaknesses and Albab’s tendency to falls asleep.

    So they took advantage of the poor Albab’s misfortune to do their biddings instead the other way around.

    Albab’s is so weak that at one time, the gatherings of jinnee agreed that they likes him so much, they want him to continue to be their master forever.

    One chief jinnee even proposed that the gathering makes a pledge that they will supports him forever to be their master.

    The story goes on that one day, a deputy jinnee heard rumours that their old master’s is coming back to put them back into their bottle.

    They are so angry with rage that they pledge they will do their utmost to prevent their old master’s from coming back.

    It is only later that they realise that it is only a dream but it did not prevent them from having a cold shivers of the dream.

    Back to 2012. Happy birthday to you Tun!May Mahathirism continues to haunt the oppositions forever.

  19. eanisazman Jul 11,2012 9:32 PM

    Salam Tun and All,

    Mahathirism could mean fighting for the Malay and Muslim group of people. It could also mean the awareness of the Malay people to rise up to the challenge. Maybe it means, Malaysia based on concept and ideas of Mahathir. For whatever it means, he is afraid of it and could probably hates it.

    As far as I remember living in Malaysia, Mahathir is the Prime Minister of Malaysia. Mahathirism must be prevailing for over 22 years in his rulingship. I have witness that Mahathirism have changed the poor and futureless country like this into a highly progressed country. Its nation are now more educated, sophisticated, critical, argumentative and IT savy. The country from a shithole become a Golden Peninsula where everybody want to have some piece of it.

    For an average guy who have no intention to get into the race of ruling Malaysia with Uncle Kit, I say, I love Mahathirism. Bringing up the Malay society does not necessarily means racist. Racism is when Mahathir tells the Malays to boycot all Malaysian Chinese outlet, factory, shops or product. In this case, it is during Mahathirsm economic policies that Chinese businessmen prosper the most.

    What I fear instead, is that Malaysia would be dead together with Mahathirism when the opposition pact led by the corrupted Malay opportunist kills it like Pak Lah did.

    I am a Muslim and a Malay and proud of it. If the Liberalist did not like it, so be it………..

  21. MiddleAges Jul 11,2012 4:37 PM

    Salam Tun,

    1. Your blog Tun, is infested with people unable to offer their own thinking, and ride high on your ideas. This subsidised mentality is what is known as Mahathirsm.

    2. There is good an bad, as with most things in life. The good thing is that things gets done, arguments are kept to a minimum because your logic is sound. The bad thing is, Malaysians are unable to think alternatives, and the government is caught with a rigid or frozen mind. The recent cinema ruling in Selangor is one clear example.

    3. People, especially Malays, ride on Mahathirism, because it is advantageous to them. When you dish out the reality that Malays must change or be left behind in the developing world, there was silence on the floor. One can hear the only the frogs croaking.

    4. Saya kira kalau Melayu tak ingin ketingalan, mesti mula belajar hidup sesama manusia lain secara aman damai dan terhormat, Tak ada siapa akan hormat orang yang suara lantang berceritakan hak atau bangsa, sebab kita semua punyai hak juga, hak manusia.

    5. Asyik2 di gertakkan dengan 13 Mei, Melayu tak ada modal lain ke ? Tak ada siapa yang ingin melawan Melayu di bumi sendiri, hanya Melayu suka berdrama wayang kulit, padahal kita masih jauh ketingalan didalam ekonomi serta tammadun manusia dan Sains. Jadi sebenarnya bukan bangsa lain yang mengahalang kemajuan Melayu, usah bohong lah, Melayu sendiri tidak dapat menerima hakikat kita manusia berbeza, tapi kita semua perlu hidup. Orang Melayu fikir Melayu itu satu agama, satu bahasa sahaja. Kalau lain sedikit, udah tidak diterima. Lepas itu complain Melayu tak bersatu ! Lucunya Tun.

    6. Apakah pentingnya Melayu bersatu ? Untuk apa ? Saya pernah bertanyakan seorang yang asyik komplain pasal mundur nya Melayu, saya tanya jika setiap orang atau individu Melayu berilmu tinggi, siapa yang boleh menjajah kita ? Sipolan tak dapat menjawap soalan saya sehinggga hari ini. Tak usah jadikan bangsa lain alasan kemunduran dan kejumudan sendiri. Silat apa yang kamu nak pakai didunia ini kalau tak ada makanan , tak ada duit ?

    7. Jika semua bangsa yang bukan “Melayu” keluar dari Malaysia, belum tentu kita aman sejahtera, kaya raya. Saya rasa lumpuh Malaysia ini jika berlaku sedimikian.

    8. Terima Kasih Tun, kerana membawa Melayu keluar dari dunia gelap ke dunia yang lebih jernih. Kalau Tun dapat menenal pasti sepuluh orang yang boleh membawa obor kemajuan secara aman ( Islam ), saya fikir Tun akan rasa lega amat sangat.

    9. Buat sementara, Mahatirsm ada baiknya juga. Terus terang, saya tidak suka ikutan taksub kepada seseorang, ianya amat merbahaya, akan tetapi Mahathirsm, seperti juga Communism, boleh kita ikuti dengan selamat, asal jangan dekat sangat.

    Terima Kasih Tun

    Sayang sebagian dari penduduk bumiputra buat tuli dan buta dan sudah lupa memperjuangkan bangsa dan agama.Mereka hanya gila kuasa di samping itu menghacurkan bangsa dan negara.Kami bukan kejarkan kekayaan tetapi kesibangan dan negara yang stabil dan jangan sampai bangsa ini hancur dan jadi hamba di negara sendiri.Saya menhimbau pada mereka sesat dan gila kuasa marilah kita bersatu jangan tertipu dengan janji2 pembankang .

    Dear Middle Ages,

    There shouldn’t be any issue with old type medicine if it’s working effectively. In fact we should be worry about new untested but “glorified” medicine posed upon us. This new medicine seems to create so many side effects which are dangerous if not deadly.

    To ask people to opt for change, then the offer must be better that the existing option. It’s very irresponsible for us to ask the rakyat to change govement simply because BN has rules more that 50 years? I’m all for change and I do agree BN and UMNO has bad practices but hey I just do not see PR as a better option, seriously. So, until Malaysians are offered a better option, We should all stick with BN.

    PR rule will not have a single good thing for Malaysian exspecially the Malay, period.

    Salam Tun,

    Anwar Ibrahim is a liar. He has proved himself to be a liar over and over again. So why do people still want to believe that he will retire from politics if election result is not in his favour. He has something up his sleeves and it’s going to be something very big so beware. He has made a pact with the devil, he has to deliver.

  26. ROZALI BIN AYED Jul 11,2012 10:43 AM

    Assalamualaikum W.B.T. Yg Bhg Tun,

    Yg Bhg Tun adalah merupakan seorang negarawan Malaysia, malah diiktiraf oleh sebahagian besar negara di dunia sebagai seorang pemimpin yang bertaraf antara bangsa. Tun telah banyak berjasa kepada negara dan rakyat Malaysia semasa menerajui kepimpinan negara sebagai Perdana Menteri Malaysia ke 4 selama 22 tahun (1981 – 2003). Tun seorang pemimpin yang mempunyai visi dan misi yang jauh untuk melonjak negara Malaysia menjadi sebuah negara maju pada tahun 2020, insya’Allah.

    2. Aura era kepimpinan Tun amat dihargai dan disanjungi oleh majoriti rakyat Malaysia, kecuali parti pembangkang dan penyokong tegarnya yang amat mencemburui segala pencapaian Tun dan berterusan menafikan jasa-jasa Tun terhadap negara dan rakyat Malaysia. Hasil pencapaian negara dibawah era kepimpinan Tun terus dinikmati oleh rakyat Malaysia termasuk dikalangan parti-parti pembangkang (DAP, PKR & Pas). Mahathirismi mungkin membawa erti bahawa kesan-kesan positif era kepimpinan Tun masih lagi dirasai dan dinikmati oleh negara dan rakyat Malaysia. Maka dengan demikian ahli politik pembangkang seperti Lim Kit Siang dari DAP dan sekutunya dari PKR & Pas memang berusaha keras ingin melupuskan semangat Mahathirismi yang masih lagi berleluasa dikalangan pemikiran rakyat sehingga kini. Aura Mahathirismi mungkin diantara faktur yang menggugat kemaraan parti-parti pembangkang untuk menawan Putrajaya pada pilihanraya umum ke 13 nanti.

    3. Tun Mahathir tidak mahu mengamalkan sikap seperti kacang lupakan kulit (dengan mudah melupakan jasa UMNO dan Barisan Nasional dengan izin Allah S.W.T. memartabatkan Tun sebagai Perdana Menteri Malaysia ke 4). Ada sebahagian pemimpin dengan begitu mudah lupakan jasa UMNO & BN setelah tidak lagi dipilih menjawat jawatan kabinet, merasa kecewa dan terus beralih arah dan tidak lagi menyokong kepimpinan dan parti yang pernah berjasa kepadanya. Pemimpin seperti ini hanya mementingkan diri sendiri, dan amat tidak wajar disokong untuk menjadi pemimpin buat seterusnya.

    4. YAB Dato’ Seri Mohd Najib Tun Hj. Abdul Razak Perdana Menteri terkini ada gaya kepimpinannya tersendiri, tidak perlu meniru gaya kepimpinan pemimpin-pemimpin yang terdahulu. Cuma yang perlu dikekalkan polisi parti yang dipimpin, perancangan pembangunan yang telah dan sedang dilaksanakan yang dinalpasti memanfaatkan negara dan rakyat oleh kepimpinan terdahulu. Dato’ Seri Mohd Najib dilihat konsisten mengekal dan menambahbaik segala perancangan pembangunan kepimpinan terdahulu dan disamping itu menjana idea-idea baru melalui berbagai transfromasi yang telah dan sedang dilaksanakan dengan jayanya.

    5. Sumbangan Tun terhadap perkembangan politik dan pembangunan negara dan rakyat Malaysia masih lagi diperlukan dan amat dialu-alukan oleh banyak pihak (rakyat dan organisasi-organisasi tertentu). Amat rugi bagi negara jika menolak seratus peratus pandangan dan komen Tun terhadap perkembangan politik dan pembangunan negara. Selepas era kepimpinan Tun, ada unsur-unsur menolak sebahagian besar penglibatan Tun dalam arena politik dan pembangunan negara. Ianya sedikit sebanyak memberi kesan negatif kepada UMNO & BN. Syukur alhamdulillah semenjak Dato’Seri Mohd Najib mengambil alih kepimpinan negara, Tun dengan bebas dapat meneruskan sumbangan dalam berbagai bentuk kepada negara untuk sama-sama dikongsikan dan kita renungkan.

    6. Pakatan pembangkan tidak akan dapat menghapuskan sama sekali aura Tun Dr. Mahathir (Mahathirismi) jika berpaksikan niat yang tidak bersih dan suci. Mana mungkin yang betul dikatakan salah, yang bersih dikatakan kotor. Rakyat sudah begitu terdidik dan bijak membuat perbandingan yang mana boleh diterima atau ditolak. Sebuah negara demokrasi seperti Malaysia juga amat perlukan kumpulan pembangkang, tetapi kumpulan pembangkang yang tidak bersifat destruktif atau meruntuhkan segala kebaikan yang ada. Pembangkang mesti bersifat menambahbaik kepada sebarang kekurangan atau kelemahan yang ada dan menjana idea-idea baru untuk negara dan kepentingan rakyat.

    Sekian, terima kasih dan wassalam untuk Tun dan semua sahabat blogger.

    Politics is all about self interest , country is to shoulder the burden while politicians reap the wealth. This is the political cycle. And there is no democracy at all if you look with clarity. It is a game of wits.“Mahathirism” does not exist , i only know Barisan Nasional. So Lim Kit Siang just invented this word so that he can debate the subject to his advantage. I think he is senile.DAP is dominated by Lim Kit Siang family , so cronism do exist in DAP.

  28. Ordinarypeople Jul 11,2012 4:00 AM

    YAB Tun,

    In my opinion, Lim Kit Siang & DAP will be happy only when the existing government collapse and the country become chaotic. So, they can do whatever they want.

    He should not be afraid of this toothless tiger figuratively speaking

    One wonders if it should have been an old toothless tiger, literally.

    An exercise of ‘a couple of F-4s to test radar defense system’ ; goevernment, asabiah, and now the tale of the fears an other old toothless tiger, figuratively speaking.

    Mahathirism is dead?

    Salam Tun

    1-Lim Kit Siang is a well polished politician.He doesn’t think that a great world class politician like you would retire from politics just like that.You are not that easy.Its simply too good to be true.

    2-He can sense it .Mahathirism is still well and alive.The main agenda of Mahathirism,is this mission to bring up the Malays and the Muslims to a level of glory and greatness.Nothing is impossible.

    3-This is a job he had failed miserably in his twenty two years.We all know Tun is not a quitter.If this way doesn’t work he would find a way that does.

    4-Afterall Tun did inform the public that he will be pursuing an unfinished business after his retirement.Is Mahathirism the unfinished business that is still being pursued behind closed doors? Perhaps Najib is just his puppet?

    5-Lim Kit Siang has been put in Kamunting by Tun before so he knows Tun’s steely determination to achieve anything he has put his minds to.Tun is capable of thinking out of the box.

    6-He believes something is definitely up Tun’s sleeves.Kit Siang knows there is only one person who would have the wisdom to foil his plans of winning the GE13 now that he is ‘that’ close.

    7-Until he can be sure that his fears are unfounded Kit Siang will still have a problem to go to sleep every night until GE13.

    Thanks Tun

    Whats wrong with mahathirism?
    Why not condemn pluralism? Marxism? Idolism? What ever ism that you know la?

    You dont like it, let it be la. Dont follow la. We are in “democracism.” Waloaeh.. You follow plak.

    Somebody really got worm in his or her brain. Always think bengkang bengkok.

    Dearest YAB Tun,

    “Happy Birthday Tun…”

    1. Lim Kit Siang is still afraid of Tun. He knows very well that even though Tun is no longer the PM, Tun still has so many supporters. But he forgot that as a father Tun has every right to support Dato’ Mukhriz.

    2. I believe,Lim Kit Siang fears that Dato’ Mukhriz will stop his son from becoming the PM like what happened to him…history will be repeated I guess. I think he often has NIGHTMARES about “Mahathirism”.

    Thanks Tun.

    Tun

    There is no doubt that your illustrious name will be engraved in the Pantheon of World Leaders alongside great Asian leaders, Nehru, Mao , Jinnah, Deng and Soekarno. Your greatness is your compassion which ran a steady course throughout your whole political career. The choice of yourself as the Prime Minister bore credit to the wisdom of those predecessors who made the right decision. This was proven over a period of 22 years. The important fact is the country and its people held together and not shattered into smithereens of little pieces of no return which the British must have agonised in their deliberations in granting Merdeka.

    Naturally, we must consider Lim Kit Siang, a successful politician and qualified lawyer with a successful family too in Malaysian politics.

    By hook or by crook, Lim Kit Siang or Uncle Kit as some of his admirers call him, has become an outstanding Malaysian Chinese politician punching well above his weight as they usually say about themselves in Singapore.

    He has tasted the dark side of injustice as well as the lighter side of life in unique Malaysia. From what we know, he must have been inspired by our awe-inspiring Lee Kuan Yew when he was young in the 1960s. And he being an honourable man, stuck to his mentor through thick and thin.

    But unfortunately, most human beings make mistakes especially in the face of temptation, corruption, or whatever. And we only discover these negative events usually well after – at the end of the day.

    Things portraying the more human side of Singapore are now becoming facts instead of fiction or rumours. The eternal weaknesses of Humankind throughout history – are inescapable from our daily life. And Singaporeans are no exception.

    The life-style and wealth of the ruling elite of Singapore have to be seen to be believed !

    For Lim Kit Siang who is noted for a lot of goodworks to indulge in negative politics a whole life-time, it becomes a zero-sum game with no meaningful returns and yet he could be actually and really a good and great leader of the Malaysian Chinese if he practises Realpolitik and changes things for the better through evolution and not revolution in a diverse country like Malaysia.

    It is still not too late for him because most of us live up to 100 years due to the good medicines and not the good doctors !

    The Malaysian Chinese are at a cross-roads with no person or party which can really be their voice and respected. English speaking Malaysian Chinese want facts and are argumentative and have no cultural ballast. Mandarin speaking Malaysian Chinese have a chip on their shoulders and emotional by believing in traditions and hearsay. Both lack cultural ballast.

    A good and sincere leader is a perfect fit for the Malaysian Chinese at the present time.

    Fortunately, the founders of BN have created a format which could take in all interested parties. And the BN is the ultimate political party which were supposed to represent all what is best in Malaysia be it politics, religion, culture etc in the best interests of all Malaysians, the Bumiputras, the Malaysian Chinese and Indians etc. BN has been proven to be effective when properly led by the Boss.

    Malaysia is unique in its diverse population from which the historical fault lines run very deep into the earth. So far no earth shattering earthquake has hit us yet because of the wise leadership of BN through successive governments and also the Opposition had no money and less scandals. But the political scenario changed since 2003.

    We all recognise change in nice and easy steps.

    And the answer is now in Lim Kit Siang hands – Shakespeare Hamlet – ‘ To be or not to be that is the question ‘

    All Malaysians especially the Malaysian Chinese should vote BN for evolution for a better Malaysia.

    Salam Tun

    1-Lim Kit Siang a well polished politician.He doesn’t think that a great world class politician like you would retire from politics just like that.You are not that easy.Its too good to be true.

    2-He can sense it .Mahathirism is still well and alive.The main agenda of Mahathirism,is his mission to bring up Malays and Muslims to a level of greatness.

    3-This is a job he had failed miserably in his twenty two years.We all know Tun is not a quitter.

    4-Afterall Tun did inform the public that he will be pursuing an unfinished business after his retirement.Is Mahathirism the unfinished business that is still being pursued behind closed doors? Perhaps Najib is just his puppet?

    5-He has been put in Kamunting by Tun before so he knows this guy’s steely determination to achieve anything he has put his minds to.Tun is capable of thinking out of the box.

    6-He believes something is definitely up Tun’s sleeves.Kit Siang knows there is only one person who would have the wisdom to foil his plans of winning the GE13 now that he is that close.

    7-Until he can be sure that his fears are unfounded Kit Siang will still have a problem to go to sleep every night.

    Thanks Tun

  38. azienmat Jul 10,2012 5:35 PM

    Lim Kit Siang sebenarnya bukan takut sangat Mahathirism tetapi dia takutkan orang mengata dalam dalam DAP dia sendiri adalah seekor institutions yang menghidap sindrom tua nyanyuk soh chai.
    ‘Melantik’ dirinya sebagai Mursyidul Am DAP, anaknya Lim Guan Eng sebagai General kapitan DAP. Menantunya Betty Chew (isteri Lim Guan Eng) adalah tukang sorak DAP di DUN Melaka dan akan datang kita sudah menjangka siapa lagi dia nak lantik? si peraba barangkali.
    Anak-bapak. Suami-isteri.Satu-keluarga berkuasa dalam DAP, di manakah anda dalam DAP. Kita nak namakan apa ini?
    Makanya dialih perhatian Mahathirism seolah-olah apa yang dia lakukan di depan-depan kita sekarang ini tiada canggungnya.
    Ini betul-betul cina tak tahu malu, muka tembok, terhegeh-hegeh yang terkena denial syndrom mahu menidakkan sokongan atas sumbangan Mahathir dan menidakkan SHIT yang melepek di ekornya.

    P/s: kalau ada itu Mahathirsm aku akan sokong. Itu memang baik dan terbukti baik untuk diikuti. Jauh lebih bagus daripada Limkitsiangsdnsm mahupun Anwar-dajjalism. Anwar lagi lah tak boleh pakai!

    Tun M and all,

    Lim Kit Siang fears….Mummy Foo (Foo Yue Chuan) kot? There have been a lot about this behind-the-scene-woman.

    Saya ingin ucapkan Selamat Menyambut Ulang Tahun ke 87.
    Semoga Allah berkati hidup Tun dan semoga Allah kurniakan kesihatan yang mantap agar Tun dapat meneruskan perjuangan untuk rakyat Palestine dan umat Islam keseluruhannya. Biar mereka yang hasad dengki terhadap Tun terutama yang seangkatan dengan Tun yang kesehatan tidak begitu memihak pada mereka, ternganga mulut, tengok Tun masih kelihatan muda dan cergas. Hasil dari hati yang bersih dan ikhlas… Subhanallah.

    Salam,

    Tun yang dihormati,
    dan pembaca sekalian.

    Secara logiknya, pemikiran pembangkang di cemari dengan kebencian sehingga semua perkara mengenai pemimpin negara BN dicemuh. Tetapi yang kelakarnya, mereka lupa untuk mencermin diri sendiri.

    Seperti contoh yang diutarakan Tun mengenai Kit Siang menuduh Tun menolong anak sendiri. Tetapi kenyataan daripadanya itu seperti terpalit kepada batang hidungnya sendiri.

    Persoalannya adakah mana-mana bapa yang tidak sayangkan anak dan tidak akan menolong anak sendiri?

    Dalam arena politik di dalam dan diluar negara pun sudah terbukti ada yang begitu seperti George W.Bush – George Bush, Benazir Bhutto-Zulfikar Ali Bhutto, Megawati – Sukarno, Aung San Suu Kyi – Aung San…

    Jadi tidak mengapa selagi anak-anak pemimpin ini berkaliber dan sanggup meneruskan perjuangan bapa mereka.

    Sekian

  43. Joshua Lopez Jul 10,2012 10:48 AM

    The whole world knows that you are far from a ‘toothless tiger!’ The ruckus you can cause is beyond the magnitude of a 9.0 Tsunami! We know you too well lah Dato’Seri…Let the young lead, for better or for worse, we have to learn in our own way.

    And whats this latest naughtiness of yours? Attacking the idea of JPA recognition to KTAR? Please lah Dato’Seri, Education should be free from politics, why hurt fellow Malaysians earning an honest qualification? This kind of noughtiness is rather feudal and uncalled for. The country has way passed 50 years of independence, we are all supposed to be naturalized as full citizens. My generation has no connections with any other country except Malaysia, just like you have no links with Kerala anymore. So whats the issue now?

    Of late, you seem to be rather lost with the reality of today’s world and politics. Off course Mahathirsm exsisted, i read the book in 1995, ‘The Paradoxes Of Mahathirism.’ You really tickle me when you act so well to a point of purest innocense!

  44. mekyam Jul 10,2012 10:47 AM

    Lim kit siang DAP

    Amirga,Anwar calls for bersih 3
    Will be a call for destruction to Malaysia
    It is none excusable matter
    It,s not a small matter
    It must be executed

    They will be safe if matter goes worst
    If things goes out of hand
    We as the public will go chaos
    Our economy will be threaten
    Most will fled,our children scarttered
    Lives will be sparred
    Nations building will collapsed

    Who is going to pay for all these ?
    Amirga, The 2 Lim , Anwar, DAP ?
    They already have a hide out
    Perhaps private jet is on standby

    They are like NATO, United Nation of United State Agenda
    When they meet to solve the Middle East problems
    It,s like A Pack Of Hungry Wolves
    Sitting in the United Nations Assembly
    Howling to safe A Dying Chicken

    In Syria
    They will fail for Peace Mission
    Because the Wolves there have their own personal Agenda
    Any problems cannot be solve
    If Every that sits to solves
    Have their own Agenda behind them

    How you expect
    A Pack of hungry Wolves to rescue a dying chicken

    It,s the same to Bersih 3 organiser

    Yang Amat Berbahagia Tun,
    Apa yang berlaku di dalam politik negara sekarang sangat berbahaya yang saya jangka boleh menyebabkan keamanan yang kita nikmati selamat ini akan berakhir.Pada tahun 1969 mei 13 saya masih ingat bagaimana suasana berjaga jaga yang sangat menakutkan kalau kalau pergaduhan orang cina dan melayu akan berlaku.dikampung saya di Batu Pahat.Setiap malam anak anak muda yang lebih besar dari saya berjaga malam di kampung.Semangat mereka untok mempertahankan diri sangat tinggi dan semuanya bersatu.Cerita cerita apa yang berlaku di Kuala Lumpur ketika itu menjadikan kita begitu cemas dan takut,tetapi semua bersedia menghadapinya.Banyak gelangang silat dibuka dan ramai pula yang mampu menjadi guru.Saya juga tidak ketinggalan belajar walaupun baru berusia 13 tahun.

    Debat antara DAP dan MCA,yang mana DAP banyak menyalahkan UMNO dan BN sebenarnya ditujukan pada orang orang melayu.Api kebencian perkauman ini jika tidak dikawal semasa PRU 13 nanti akan mengakibatkan berlakunya sekali lagi pergaduhan kaum.Ramai kawan kawan saya yang berbangsa cina dan india yang seumur dengan saya melahirkan kebimbangan yang sama. Pembinaan negara ini oleh tokoh tokoh terdahulu bukanlah mudah dan apa yang sedang dilakukan oleh Dato Seri Najib melalui pelbagai tranfomasi mesti disokong oleh seluruh rakyat negara ini yang cintakan Malaysia tanahair yang bertuah ini.
    Kepada anak bangsaku ayuhlah kita BERSATU kerana musuh kita telah semakin nyata. Kepada Ayahanda Tun suntiklah semangat kepada seluruh anak anak melayu selagi nyawa dikandung badan. wasalam

    Dear Tun,

    I think all fair minded and sensible people in Malaysia would agree with your analysis. Every Malaysian Prime Minister would want his own brand and people to run the show. Unlike Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore, who never totally relinquish power even to his own son, you have been too sensitive to negative rumours and relinquish power too totally and too soon.
    My sincere observation is that your thinking and mind is as sharp as ever and you still possess the physical strength and perseverance to soldier on. You are as capable, if not more capable than any past or present Malaysian Prime Minister. You relinquished power too early due to betrayal of your many ambitious deputies and unfounded accusations of cronyism and corruption by your rivals and sacked deputy. Your abdication of power is a great loss to the nation and the people of Malaysia. We miss your leadership.

    Whatever Mahathirism is, it has catapulted Malaysia from a little known but progressive Nation into a dynamic, well-recognised and highly respected global player.

    Apparently what Lim Kim Siang fears about Mahathrism is due to his chauvinistic and ‘kiasu’ brand of politics, where he had underestimated and finds it difficult to admit and recognise the ability and capability of Dr. Mahathir to propel, steer and lead the Nation and People of Malaysia as respected participant and contributor to the world.

    Unless Lim Kit Siang sheds his negative chauvinistic & kiasu attitude, then Mahathirism shall continue to haunt his political nightmares till his demise. Lim Kit Siang should know better by now rather than to succumb to his ‘Takut Kalah’ and ‘Tak Mahu Kalah’ to the Mahathirism phenomena..!!

    Askm Tun & wish you in excellent health.

    It is obvious that his mentor, LKY, had difficulties in dealing with you before.LKS must have been warned about the possible problems that he may have if you are still “politically” active. It appears that you will be the stumbling block that must be removed if DAP is to achieve objective of their grand plan, may be to create a greater Singapore.

    They are building family empire as we have already seen. They all are surrounded by the family members, namely; LKY & his son, LKS & his son & in laws, Karpal & his son & DSAI & his wife & his daughter. Obviously they are not very comfortable to accept Mukhriz as possible candidate to be the future PM especially when you are still around.

    Mahathirsm is just another creation for their cause as what the world has created al-Qaidah to create a new world order.

    Hope you continue to show and warn the people of the opposition’s real intentions are so that Malaysia will continue to reamin peaceful & prosperous. May Allah bless & protect us all.

  55. Orang Lama Jul 10,2012 12:19 AM

    Salam,
    YB Lim Kit Siang(LKS) mungkin menakrifkan Mahathirism sebagai satu perjuangan yang berasaskan kepada prinsip2 yang telah menerima suntikan semangat oleh Tun Mahathir kot. Dua prinsip yang ditakuti LKS ialah DEB dan Negara Islam.

    Semua bumiputera tahu bahwa DAP paling benci UMNO diatas dua prinsip ini.

    1. Pakatan rakyat&bumiputera
    ===============================
    Penyokong PAS dan Keadilan tidak menggangap depa bumiputera walupun depa dikalangan paling banyak menerima habuan nikmat jadi bumiputera. Ir. Khalid Samad, Ir . Nizar , Prof X, Prof Y adlah dikalangan PAS yang berjaya bukan kerana depa bumiputera tapi kerana usaha gigih sehingga berjaya melanjut pelajaran ke luar negara dan berjaya berdikari tanpa bantuan kerajaee. Orang PAS kata depa orang Islam. Bagi kebanyakan orang PAS, tak ada istilah bumiputera dalam Islam . Semua orang sama. Orang melayu boleh jadi Presiden Republik Cina sementara orang Cina boleh jadi Raja Arab Saudi asalkan depa Islam walaupun majoriti penduduk kaum lain. Kefahaman ini sesuai dengan cara hidup Amerika, orang kulit hitam boleh jadi Presiden Amerika asalkan Kristian?
    Bagi orang DAP,siapa2 boleh jadi pemimpin Malaysia asalkan dia olang Malaysia. Olang Malaysia mesti ada taraf kerakyatan dipersetujui masa merdeka dari British. Itu Olang Indon, olang Mindano , Patani semuanya pendatang bukan olang Malaysia walupun tok nenek depa berdagang berulang alik sekitaran Kepulauan Melayu. PAS punya Islam pun kata begitu,sebab itu pemimpin PAS paling sibuk memastikan itu Bangala, itu Mindano,Patani dan Indon tak lak beri kerakyatan.nanti depa undi UMNO. PAS perjuangan Islam duniawi saja ke?Akhirat tak lak mau ke? Perjuangan PAS sekarang ialah memastikan tak ada itu undi hantu kerana kalau tak lah hantu PAS tentu boleh jadi wali oh? Kalau tak lak hantu, PAS boleh menang semua kerusi Melayu. Semua orang sokong PAS sebab PAS untuk Semua. Lihat di Selangor, kan PAS untuk semua. Gereja ada problem PAS datang. Itu kuil ada problem PAS mesti mari. Itu Carlsberg punya hal, PAS pun boleh mari. PAS for All. Di Selangor, PAS dan DAP bagai isi dan kulit. PAS dan DAP kamceng ma! PAS yakin dan percaya perjuangan Islam mereka adalah selari dengan perjuangan DAP dan PKR. Tok Guru LKS dah perturunkan amanat kepada orang PAS supaya Mahthirism mesti dihapuskan

    Jangan marah PAS ye? Senang2 tengok2 lah kalau2 tersesat ,baliklah semula ke pangkal jalan. Saya pun sama, kadang2 tersesat juga. Kita orang Islam elok pesan memesan tentang kebenaran dan pesan memsan tentang kesabaran. Manusia cepat lupa.

    2. Negara Islam
    =============
    YB LKS rimas dan lemas dengan istilah negara Islam. Dia minta YB Karpal ‘Penang Tiger’ Singh lanyak negara Islam bagi pihak dia. Sebab LKS lagi bijak berpolitik dari Karpal Singh kerana Karpal lebih bersifat practising lawyer daripada ahli politik.
    Negara Islam yang dicanangkan Tun Mahathir adalah terang2 bertentangan dengan konsep Malaysian Malaysia yang dibawa oleh DAP yang mempunyai sifat genetik PAP partip emerintah Singapura.
    LKS rimas dan lemas bila Tun Mahathir semasa jadi Perdana Menteri asyik2 nak mempromosi Islam, bank Islam, universiti Islam, Institut Kefahaman Islam, Muzium Kesenian Islam, bina banyak masjid2 dan surau2,bantu negara2 Islam dan lain2 terlalu banyak untuk Islam. Bagi LKS barangkali dia rimas dan lemas kerana lain olang bukan Islam tak lah dapat itu faedah duit kelajaan belanja untuk Islam. Ini macam, mau angkat itu Lebai PAS lagi bagus. PAS ada nama Islam pun tak lah guna banyak wang untuk Islam. Aiya! wait a minute.Dari pilih itu lebai PAS , lebih baik angkat itu YB Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim jadi boneka lagi baik. Dia pun ada experience banyak tahun jadi Timbalan Perdana Menteri.Ada lagi itu international connection lagi ma!

    PAS kembalilah kepada Islam yang sebenarnya. Kami orang biasa perlu bimbingan yang pemimpin yang berkualiti. Sesat kami dibawah ini mungkin juga kerana yang diatas bercakaran bukan nak bersatu padu menyelesaikan masalah ummah. UMNO dan PAS selesaikan masalah remaja2. Masalah MCA atau DAP itu bukan tanggungjawab UMNO atau PAS. Tanggungjawab UMNO dan PAS ialah bersatu padu menyelesaikan masalah ummah . Berikan tumpuan kepada pembentukan generasi pelapis yang berkualiti untuk memimpin negara supaya Malaysia kekal sebagai sebuah negara Islamyang diredha dan dirahmati Allah Ta’ala.

    Alangkah baiknya PAS dan UMNO cari jalan membantu ummah daripada masing2 cari jalan nak jatuhkan satu sama lain. Jangan diakhirat saling menyalah satu sama lain.

    Ingatlah ayat AlQuran Al-Israa’ Ayat 84:
    “Katakanlah: tiap-tiap seorang beramal menurut pembawaan jiwanya sendiri;maka Tuhan kamu LEBIH MENGETAHUI siapakah (di antara kamu) yang lebih betul jalannya”

    Salam Tun,

    I do not know who Dato Mukriz is, what he is made of, and why i should listen to him.

    I think Malaysia has many talents, if only we listen with an open heart and mind. It is sad that with over 20 million people, it is the same group of people giving out the same stale medicine.

    It is about time we try new fresh air in our political landscape. BN model is just too old, and just like an old jelopy, very expensive to maintain, because it is highly inefficient. Yes, it still runs, but on the new super highway, it is like a kereta lembu, relatively speaking.

    There are plenty good people in Malaysia. Give them a chance. They will serve well. If not, they will serve elsewhere, and make much more. Malaysia juga yang rugi. That is why we need a government that is not arrogant, orang tamak selalu rugi.

    Thank You Tun

    Dear Ayahanda Tun,

    I would like to make an early wish of Selamat Hari Jadi to you. May you have continued good health, wits and wisdom.

    I am apolitical by nature, since my University days, though I do take stands on pertinent issues. I believe in intelligent debates based on facts and not on emotions, rhetoric, or political objectives. I have seen my fellow Muslim Malaysian (at the height of reformasi) performing Solat Hajat after Friday prayers asking for God to tie your tongue and cut your arm. I do not have any appreciation for such actions.

    I prefer if all Malaysians would lay all facts and agree on what make sense and what do not. What is the common ground and what is not. What is good for the future generations.

    We have no interest politics. And I wish that politicians would spend less time politicking and more time serving the nation and its citizen. By that am referring to both sides of the political divide.

    Salam.

    Assalamualaikum,
    The Zionism, Communism, Natoism, NikAzizsm, Limkitsiangsm, Anwarism, Karpalism and such will pact together against Mahathirism. It is because only Mahathirism will prevent them from taking over this country.
    If Mahathirism that lead the country for 22 years and brought prosperity for people to live peacefully and successfully, let’s bring the Mahathirism once more….

    Good evening YAB,

    10. Ironically, Kit Siang now being the full tooth tiger with lots of power and eh bei, wearing MIB glasses some more, why is he still afraid of the Mahathirism?

    11. Today, Kit Siang is afraid because his hatred and frustration have made him gained what he had worked for his whole life since 1969, a period of 42 years is a very long long time.

    12. His son being the CM, hatinya tak tenteram.

    13. Instead of concentrating his focus in developing Penang as a man, his son and daughter in law prefer to gaduh with all MCA men including media owner.

    14. Kit Siang is not afraid of Mahathirism.

    15. Kit Siang is afraid of a stronger MCA.

    16. When Guan Eng agrees to disagree of Hukum Hudud, he has made the most irresponsible political decision not only to DAP members and those Chinese who held high hope on DAP, he is also being irresponsible to other religions.

    17. 你雖不殺伯仁,伯仁為你而死 (Though you did not kill these men, but these men die because of you).

    18. Kit Siang is not the smartest politician in Malaysia.

    19. There are many wise and responsible politicians who know this famous Chinese proverb are doing very well today.

    20. Sdr Botak dan Zukliflee tak usah kafirkan bangsa ku Malaysia, tak suka kaum Cina,India, Iban atau Kadazan, undi UMNO atau PAS.

    21. Masih tak okay, migrate ke Indonesia.

    That’s all, YAB.
