1. In his campaign to become President of the US Barack Obama promised change, “time for change”, he said.

2. He promised to close down Guantanamo Detention Camp.

3. He promised to stop trials of detainees by Military Courts.

4. He promised to pull out from Iraq and Afghanistan.

5. And many more.

6. Now four years into his first term he has failed to keep his promises.

7. Guantanamo is still holding so-called terrorists; still torturing them. No military courts but no trials by civilian courts either.

8. Instead of pulling out from Iraq and Afghanistan he approved a “surge” in the troops sent to this area. Later he pulled out some troops but American soldiers are still in the two countries.

9. Making promises during campaigns for elections is easy. Keeping them is a different matter. The best hope is that people’s memory is short. They would normally forget the promises.

10. Now the opposition in Malaysia have copied Obama and is promising change.

11. Give them a chance they say. The BN has ruled this country for 55 years. It is time to change. They will change this into a welfare state. Everything will be free. No fees for education. No tolls. Large subsidy for petrol. 20% royalty to oil producing states etc.etc.

12. The Socialist and Communist have tried this welfare state idea. They failed. Malaysia has no ideology. But the reality is that the Government needs money in order to develop the country and to subsidise living cost for the people. But when Government foregoes taxes, tolls and fees, it will have less money. But it will have to spend more on running an maintaining utilities, expressways, schools, operational and development cost, pension etc.

13. So where does the Government get necessary funds?

14. Borrowing is okay if the money is invested and giving a return. But borrowing money in order to just spend will lead to non-payment of debts.

15. That’s what happened to Greece. It’s bankrupt now. The whole of Europe cannot put it back together again.

16. Admittedly the BN has ruled this country every since independence. But look at the record and compare it with other countries which gained independence at the same time. Compare it even with the developed West. They are in deep financial trouble and try as they might, they have not been able to overcome the crisis.

17. Remember 1997-98 crisis. The then Deputy PM and Minister of Finance tried the IMF solution without the IMF loans. Banks and companies were faced with the threat of bankruptcy from non-performing loans. Imports cost more. Cost of living shot up.

18. The track record of the Minister of Finance then was bad although there is a fondness of claiming success brought about by other people as his success. PNB, UIA were part of the claim.

19. Now as leader of the Opposition he is claiming to bring about change. What good change did he introduce when he was in the Government? All he was interested in was getting up the leadership ladder of UMNO in order to become Prime Minister. How he achieved his objective does not bear scrutiny.

20. Five years to give a trial as Government is dangerous. Many things can be destroyed in five years. Besides the Opposition as Government will ensure there will be no return for the BN. Officers in the Government will be used to “gempar” (threaten) whoever tries to change Government.

21. Already we see this person who claims to fight for free speech suing and resorting to the courts to shut the mouth of his critics. Other powers of the Government will be similarly abused. Nepotism and cronyism will be employed as indeed they are in the party he now heads.

22. The record is there. Malaysians must not allow themselves to be hoodwinked as I was hoodwinked by the appearance of religious piety in the past.

23. The BN has listened to the people and has changed many laws and policies. All that the people need to do is to urge the BN to carry out whatever change the people desire.

25. Better the devil you know than the angel you don’t.

    Dear Mr Amin Tan,

    I fully respect your opinion on September 16, 2012 at 1:44 pm. I have not yet made up my mind as to who is better. May be you are right, may be you’re not. After all, i’m just a young kid with not much experience right? 🙂 Like I said, at the time of the crisis, there was only one party with the authority of implementing the measures taken. To eanisazman, I never said that I WANT the financial crisis to happen again. What i meant was it would only be fair to compare if the two parties were giving the same situation and both parties are given the same length of authority to act and if we can see the results from the two different approaches.

    Frankly speaking, while I have much respect for DSAI and Tun for their contributions, I don’t think it is necessary to compare them in the current context of the 13th GE. If you wish to compare DS Najib and Anwar, then it would be more appropriate 🙂

    To eanisazman, Anwar has agreed to open up his bank accounts for scrutiny with a condition that other MP’s including the PM and DPM to do the same. It’ll be much easier if both parties just accept Anwar’s proposition. For the benefit of all Malaysians, I would love to see their bank accounts. Then we can see who is telling the truth and who is not. So in that aspect, I think the ball is now with the rest of the MPs. I think his offer is still open (correct me if i’m wrong). So far, the PM and DPM is silent and thus, seems reluctant to accept the offer. Talk about transparency 😉

    With regards to accusing a person (whether Najib or DSAI or any other person) of any crime, whoever asserts must prove . Until the accused is proven that he is directly involved, he is innocent in the eyes of the law (and mine).

    Even if corruption cannot be proven as to who did what, i believe (correct me if i’m wrong) the Auditor general himself reported high levels of corruption under the BN rule. His report is not to be taken lightly. My concern is whether the BN has done enough to prevent them 🙂 PR was never in power and thus, I think the ball on this aspect is now with BN.

    Peace be upon you all 🙂

    Dear Tun,
    Please allow me to address Saudara Fzal on the issue of Dr.M and Anwar.

    //As for your lengthy questions. I do not know why he didn’t reduce the prices back then. The most important thing is change is taking place now. On the stand by Dr.M and Anwar in dealing with the financial crisis, we can’t really say who is better.//

    Saudara Fzal,
    Forgive me for being condescending and sweeping, I have known anwar since his varsity days and Dr. M since he was Minister of Education, Dr.M is far better in every department that counts. ‘macam langit dengan bumi’. Dr. M is a statesman par excellence and is better than Anwar in terms of educational qualification, intelligence, maturity, strategy, vision, originality of ideas and definitely in dealing with the financial crisis of 1997. Only in one department I would concede Anwar is better than Dr. M, planning and leading a mammoth street demonstration. Maybe only one or 2 other persons in the world can be a good rebel rouser, Fidel Castro and Nelson Mandela. Dr.M is the master, anwar is the protege.

    Dear Tun,
    Please allow me to address MiddleAges who claims his father is a war hero who defeated the communist in 1948. Anybody can make such claim without giving name, places and dates.
    Dear MiddleAges, I notice that you have been making fun and attacking those who try to promote islam as a way of life for Malaysians and you claim yourself to be a Malay muslim. You say islam is ok, only muslims who try to preach or promote islam is not ok with you. You are good in twisting and contradicting words. In Malay, pandai putar belit or autar buruk. How can a son of a courageous war hero who fought against the godless communist is himself a communist hiding behind a pseudo name of ‘MiddleAges’

    //4. The same can be said of present day religious extremists, who wants to force upon us their religious beliefs, and wants to rule over us, claiming God gave them authority.

    5. I do not support negative racial tones and rule. Ideological based rule is better, although people will still argue which ideology is best, at the very least, we can argue. In racial based rule, we cannot question, we cannot argue. Why ? Because we cannot argue. This sort of crippled logic, will cripple our whole Nation in the long run.//

    Dear MiddleAges, Our Malaysian constitution should be understood and respected. It was drafted and agreed by the founding fathers of the nation. Special Privileges for the Bumiputra and citizenship for the Chinese and Indians. Please do not pretend that the Chinese do not speak Chinese and do not originate from China or Indians do not originate from India. Economic justice and equability and harmony and peaceful coexistence among the 3 main races in Malaysia has been the corner stone upon which our Malaysian constitution was built. Let us not be jealous and hateful of one another. Let us uphold and defend our constitution. Vote BN.

    Salam Tun and All,

    Likewise. When PR accuses BN they must have proof also. Until now there is no proof against DS Najib. But, when BN asked about the RM3 billion in his accounts during the Parliament session, until now has he denied it or provide any explaination?

    Many Malaysians have grew up and they become old. They saw most of the political events with their very eyes. Now you want the financial crisis to happen again so that you can be very sure what really happens and who actually saved the country. Mintak jauh pada Allah barang ditimpakan semula musibah itu….

    Change = Yes!
    Anwar = HELL NO!

    Jangan bagi Si Opportunist perkara yang paling dia hendak, jawatan Perdana Menteri. Janji akan tinggal janji walaupun dia tau dia akan ditolak dalam PRU-14. PR kalah PRU-14 tak apa, asal jadi Perdana Menteri walaupun sehari.

    Salam Tun and All,

    Well Fzal, simply because you don’t know many things it doesnt’ mean that other people don’t either. At least I agree with you one thing. It will be a complete waste of time playing rhetorics with you. Nevertheless, last time I checked voting is still a freedom of choice….I wish you good luck in choosing who to vote for.


    Don’t get me wrong, I would like to know things that I don’t. But I don’t accept anything in the net or I read blindly without verifying them as that is very irresponsible. Plus, Islam has taught us to avoid suspicion, I am trying to abide by that. With all your accusations towards others in your previous posts, I really cannot accept any of them without proof. We Malaysians should have grown up from this mentality of accusing others and when we fail to prove them, we run away by name calling others as “rethorics” etc without realising that all such accusations are in fact the very reason of the waste of time in the first place. Thus, I shall stop there 🙂

    Peace be upon you.

    2. Semua orang tahu PAS dianggotai oleh ORANG BODOH yang TIDAK ADA FIQRAH…………………… terlalu banyak bukti kebodohannya dan kejahatannya.

    May peace be upon you all,

    August 27, 2012 at 11:36 am | PermalinkSalam Tun and All,

    To Fzal, if you really want to understand why I said that please read through.

    You want to change the entire government for a cheaper car and that is all. What else you trying to say?

    You also bable about financial leakages in the Government administration. Has it occured to you who is the grand culprit who stole the money from the government? it is the very person you want to vote just because you want a cheap car.

    Is it young people really are too simplistic minded or it is just you. Maybe that is why the PR like to manipulate this group for easy votes. They thought that young poeple still very dumb and immature to think it through effectively.

    Ask yourself why Anwar God sent clean slate anugerah Tuhan tak korap punya orang ni never reduce the car price when he is the Minister of Finance cum Deputy PM last time? And why he likes to borrow money from World Banks when we can afford to give free ride to everybody? What has he done to the rakyat during financial crisis last time. He closed down businesses and imposed higher interest rate. If it is not Dr M introduce RM pegging and Danaharta last time we have gone bankrupt under Anwar’s policy? Don’t you read all the facts that was presented by Dr M above?

    Janganlah termakan politik gula2 wahai orang muda. Gula2 selalunya untuk budak-budak bukan orang dewasa.”

    First of all, car prices are not the only thing why not to vote for BN. There are many others.

    On your second paragraph, that’s a very serious accusation. I would like to know if such thing exist. If you can prove it, I would consider my position. Unless he’s proven guilty, he is innocent to me.

    The way you addressed your third paragraph simply shows your level of maturity and manners. It doesn’t require any response from me so I’ll just stop there 🙂

    As for your lengthy questions. I do not know why he didn’t reduce the prices back then. The most important thing is change is taking place now. On the stand by Dr.M and Anwar in dealing with the financial crisis, we can’t really say who is better. It may or may not have been a wrong call. I don’t think we can ever know unless the same crisis comes back again and we borrow from IMF. There are countries who borrowed money came out from the crisis quite well just like Malaysia did.

    I did not say who I am voting for. I might vote BN or PR. I am just saying that BN has been very complacent because it has been in power for so long. There are a number of policies which require amendment/revamp. I only picked ONE of those policies of BN which to show how the government initially kept giving excuses on how it would bankrupt the country rather than realise how unjust such policy is and propose change. On that policy, I don’t really care who implements them as long as it is implemented. I think it is good that there are talks by BN to gradually decrease the levies. Hope things turn out well.

    InsyaAllah, Allah Maha Adil. Unjust rulers whether he is from BN or PR be questioned and accounted in the day of judgment. I have never said that corruption can totally be avoided if PR is voted into power. I just believed that it may be reduced based on how PR has ruled Selangor so far. We should not be so fanatical to a party only based on our political differences. Yang salah dan tidak adil, tetap salah dan tidak adil. Kenalah ubah. Kalau tak ubah juga, that is why I said I may not have much of a choice.

    May peace be upon you all 🙂

  14. fbm Aug 27,2012 8:00 PM

    Assalamualaikum Tun,

    1. I agree on what you said about them making the people hate the government. It is absolutely a ‘clever’ strategy for the opposition to make such a move.

    2. One way of making the government which has ruled for so long is to accumulate the wrongdoings and hyperbole the facts and issues.

    3. One bad thing about the current government strategy is, it is based on ‘melatah’ rather than proper consideration. Let’s say, the merdeka theme, what was that? The PM kita untuk semua song? Seems like these things have never even been screened. Literally, those have becoming jokes in the cyber world.

    4. The 1999 election was the first time we see that the opposition made such a bold move. the unprecedented coalition between the opposition parties shows how badly they can see if they stay alone. With the right people and the right time, it was a fruitful move.

    I cannot see any similarity between these joined coalition other than ‘the enemy of my enemy is my friend’ or we can say they have a common enemy. That is the only reason of the coalition, their other principles are totally opposing each other. It is amazing how many still did not realise that DAP and PAS are not on the same boat. They knew that they would not stand a chance fighting individually thus a coalition to bring down the shared enemy is a must. The only thing which they rely when people says about the disunity is the infamous buku jingga which are just words on paper. PKR plays an important role here, it is the glue between DAP and PAS, if PKR fails, they won’t be a coalition.

    We could even see that the states were ruled in disunited, the cakes were given accordingly with DAP, PAS, and PKR with a bold yet invisible red-marked border.

    5. Another observation which we can easily see is the guerrilla style politics that they have enforced, you can see they attack issues in skirmish style. Once they gather enough support, they do the big surprise. The full force attack was done with the ‘himpunan hijau’ and ‘bersih 3.0’, both are meant to attack the people trust on the government, yet they combine the two issues in the same time at the same place. The composition of the participants of bersih 3.0 and himpunan hijau shows how divided and yet organised the strategy. Himpunan hijau, mainly chinese and bersih are malay and others. In the end it has nothing to do with NGOs.

    Those who are in doubts surely will jump and swim with the wave even without knowing the reason. Opposing it seems like a backward and a bad thing. Following it will lead you further accepted. Thus allows no contestation opposing such move even when you dispute them intellectually.

    6. Before and after that we can see many other guerrilla style attacks, and they still have more coming, 55 years is not a small number, a fraction of 1% of the corruptions is also a big number. And still it is a must to get rid of these corruptions!

    7. While they attacks the weaknesses found, cleverly they promise with moons and stars. The funny thing is, when DAP talk, they promise one thing to the chinese, when PAS talks they promise the opposing things to the muslims. When PKR talk, they talk about the ruling government faults. And everybody knows, yet scared to say that DAP is mainly for chinese, PAS is for Malay, PKR is for other voters. That is the real deal. Just search on the Google and Youtube. Sebangsa, Senegara, Sejiwa? prove it DAP and PAS.

    8. Another thing people waiting before a GE is the benefit rains. Oh this time it is big but was awkwardly planned by the government. The coalition on the other hand, gives promises which will feed our greed, for example, the promise of reducing the car price. Who does not want to have a big car? We compare it with developed countries, they say that the price of cars here are too high for people to own one. Look at the cars on the road, even singaporeans envying our ability to own cars. Saga, myvi and preve seems too normal. viva is for city/kampung driving and university students. Frontier, CRVs, Wish, Starex, 3/5 series, C/E classes are everywhere. We just want more and more. Those who only own kapcai for their family will only benefit little out of this.

    But when talk about development, we compare it with the singaporeans. Do we know that singaporeans have to pay more for their cars, houses, and etc? We just want all the best things immediately and effortlessly. That is just an example how our greed are fed. Once we imagined to own such luxuries, others are not important, just like what smeagol aka gollum said, ‘my precious!’.

    9. One good thing about inheriting something is you can blame others when things go wrong, take credits when something good happens. PAS could not do it in Kelantan as they have rule the state for quite some years, but DAP surely knows how to play this game. They did some of the development, but all credits are taken without considering the predecessor. It is an awesome job.

    10. The new playing field is the internet and social media. Pay the right guy and develop the right media you’ll get the result with a bonus. The bonus is the chain reaction of people commenting, tweeting, facebooking, parodying, talking about the media, once it is a hit, you’ll get them for free from the supporters and public. The government did try the same, but sadly most of who they did hired is making them look worse.

    11. BN surely is far from perfect, alot of things need to be change and reshuffle. You have ruled so many years and accumulate corruptions. You need to understand the people needs rather than sugaring them with what they want. This must END.

    12. I will vote who i thinks will be good for Malaysia. Whoever wins (fairly), I certainly will accept it as the new government and as what Malaysia has decided. Malaysian survival in this recession, inconsistent weather, world power shift era depends on who you chose in this GE.

    Selamat hari raya Tun.

    For The Hidden Secret and truthseeker.

    You are both good people.

    I do not see I have any difference with you The Hidden Secret on your desire to own a property, a better quality car, send your children to a university and ride in better public transport.

    Throughout the years, I have contributed with others in my own enigmatic way hoping that the goodies would flow down to the base of the pyramid. I have always exhorted the powers that be to revert to normality so that the goodies will benefit the proletariat. Nothing much happened since 2003. Hence, my appearance on this Blog.

    The Hidden Secret you would agree with me that our Prime Ministers should have the following :-

    1. Commonsense

    2. The Ability to think out of the box

    3. Compassionate.

    And I am sure you would agree with me that the Government should provide jobs, housing, education for the family, a motorcar and leisure time for all. This I have always said a Malaysian Government whoever leads it must do. It is basic. I am in full agreement with your desires. Hence, I feel if given the chance, the BN under UMNO’s leadership would be able to rectify the desires of the populace more quickly being already in the saddle.

    Also under the Constitution, the Bumiputras have the legitimacy to rule from historical convention and practice together with the other races, this you would agree. No change of Government by force.

    As always, it is unfortunate that the list of names you mentioned were not born later. Then, their struggles would not have been in vain. The Cold War ended in 1989. The problem is we cannot choose our parents.

    I was taken aback when you mentioned many countries changed their Governments easily. You cannot blame me for doing some research on this.

    Malaysia is unlike any other country or Government. It is unique in this turbulent world. Thanks to the Royal Sultans of yore and present and the successive BN Governments since 1957

    If you would kindly consider my comment in its entirety together with your own original comment, you would not have accused me of putting words into your mouth. I do not need to. The facts are easily available. I am just the messenger for everyone’s enlightenment. There is nothing personal.

    I have always wanted affordable housing for all. And the Government should take-over abandoned housing projects and revive them. I am confident the BN under the leadership of UMNO will heed your request which is not insurmountable.

    There are already many avenues for your children to have a tertiary education due to the fact that the next General Elections have aroused the attention of the authorities who will have to put things right.

    The 4 issues which you brought up demands attention and I am certain the BN will focus on them at the soonest appropriate time.

    It is good that you brought up these issues which merit attention and are common issues of many Rakyat as well.

    The choice of the right Party is entirely yours to decide.

    I believe the majority of Malaysians are not stupid. But as always, reminder is a must. BN will win the GE13. Selamat Hari Raya Tun, maaf zahir batin.

    Salam Tun,

    1. My late father fought for the British in defense of our lives, against the communist threat.

    2. He is not particularly fond of the British, he says they talk too much, but he admires the courage and discipline in their ways of life, and of course support their effort to free Malaya from being forcibly overtaken by the Communists.

    3. Whether the Communist fought the British to free Malaya, or to be rules themselves, or both, it is clear to me their way of force is damaging and therefore should be stopped at all cost.

    4. The same can be said of present day religious extremists, who wants to force upon us their religious beliefs, and wants to rule over us, claiming God gave them authority.

    5. I do not support negative racial tones and rule. Ideological based rule is better, although people will still argue which ideology is best, at the very least, we can argue. In racial based rule, we cannot question, we cannot argue. Why ? Because we cannot argue. This sort of crippled logic, will cripple our whole Nation in the long run.

    6. Therefore we need to change now, to allow positive evolution into a better world. We owe it to our children to do so. Give PR space and freedom, i believe they will do better than BN. UMNO will still oppose anything that is good for Malaysians, simply because they feel left out and do not wish to be. That is however just the way things are, come the day UMNO no longer require crutches from the government, they will become once again a respectable organization. For now, we just have to tolerate their incompetence and nonsense, for the sake of peace and unity.

    Thank You Tun

    I would like to promote good conduct of discussion in this blog.

    Political, religious or any other discussion or debate will always or sometimes get HOT!!!

    As such, all of us need to stay cool, avoid any personal attack, avoid any personal remark. These are some of the tips from Wikipedia on how to stay cool in our discussion or debate :-

    1. If someone disagrees with you, make sure you try to understand why! Listen to the others, and take the time and effort to explain why you think your suggestion(s) might be preferable.

    2. Don’t label, give names or even disparage people or their edits; assume good faith for as long as possible. Terms such as “racist”, “fascist”, “moron” etc., may enrage people and make them defensive. When this happens, productive discussion becomes very difficult.

    3. Take it slow. There is no time limit for a discussion. If you are angry, take a break from posting or editing. Come back in a day or a week. You might find that someone else has made the change or comment you wanted while you were away.

    4. Do not take it too seriously.

    5. Remember, you’re not always right – sometimes you’re wrong – sometimes you’re dead wrong. Even when you know you’re right, it may be better to concede to the prevailing opinion.

    So guys… it is good for us not to use words like ‘stupid’, ‘bodoh’, ‘what brain you have then’ etc. on other people. The bad words we use is not reflecting the person whom we personally attack but it is a reflection on our self. It shows that we could not abide to the good conduct of having discussion with others.

    I am not sure whether Tun has ever use such words on other people, on his rival, on Anwar Ibrahim, Karpal Singh, Nik Aziz or PR members and supporters. However, I believe that Tun never use such words on anyone. As such, we should learn this from Tun.

    Salam Tun and All,

    To Fzal, if you really want to understand why I said that please read through.

    You want to change the entire government for a cheaper car and that is all. What else you trying to say?

    You also bable about financial leakages in the Government administration. Has it occured to you who is the grand culprit who stole the money from the government? it is the very person you want to vote just because you want a cheap car.

    Is it young people really are too simplistic minded or it is just you. Maybe that is why the PR like to manipulate this group for easy votes. They thought that young poeple still very dumb and immature to think it through effectively.

    Ask yourself why Anwar God sent clean slate anugerah Tuhan tak korap punya orang ni never reduce the car price when he is the Minister of Finance cum Deputy PM last time? And why he likes to borrow money from World Banks when we can afford to give free ride to everybody? What has he done to the rakyat during financial crisis last time. He closed down businesses and imposed higher interest rate. If it is not Dr M introduce RM pegging and Danaharta last time we have gone bankrupt under Anwar’s policy? Don’t you read all the facts that was presented by Dr M above?

    Janganlah termakan politik gula2 wahai orang muda. Gula2 selalunya untuk budak-budak bukan orang dewasa.

    I would again, like to remind all of us not to comment on person who give the comment but do comment on his/her writing. PLEASE COMMENT ON THE CONTENT, NOT ON THE CONTRIBUTOR. As such, we do not have to use words like stupid, bodoh etc. on other people. It is not wise to practice personal attack. Please read the following article on personal attack :-

    Wikipedia encourages a positive online community: people make mistakes, but they are encouraged to learn from them and change their ways. Personal attacks are contrary to this spirit and damaging to the work of building an encyclopedia.

    As a matter of polite and effective discourse, comments should not be personalized. That is, they should be directed at content and actions rather than people

    Back to changing our government…

    Even the middle income group in Malaysia can’t afford to buy a house now, not even the low income group.



    Rulings on housing is the responsibility of the Federal Government under the Ministry Of Housing And Local Authority (KPKT), not under the state government.

    It is not wise to assume on someone’s attitude and financial status. I am writing for the working class, the middle income group. It is a fact that, even the middle income group can’t afford to buy a house and the low income can straight forget about their dreams to own a house.

    It is also a CLEAR FACTS THAT THE HIGH INCOME STATES LIKE SELANGOR, PENANG AND THE FEDERAL TERRITORY OF KUALA LUMPUR ARE SUPPORTING PR. As such, it is not wise to to make assumption that the supporters of PR are the lazy and poor people.


  23. Tuntuah Aug 26,2012 3:44 PM

    Wat a pity.

    People like to change the government because they are poor. Ishh. Really stupid and love the shortcut to get rich.

    Are u sure that by changing the government you can buy cheap house? Look at penang la fren. Just click

    Are you sure that by changing government every child that we have now can go to university? Be real la sikit.

    Are you sure that by changing the government you will be rich? Wat, by changing the government we can print the money kat belakang rumah ker?

    I can see that majority that like to change the government are pretty poor. They are poor because they are damn lazy. Why not doing 2 jobs? Like the singapore an? I can see a lot of kedai makan, tesco, kfc, pizza etc etc like to recruit people. Part time they also welcome.

    So still blame the government for your laziness that makes u poorer?

    What a brain u have then.

    Dearest YAB Tun,

    You are right Tun. Cuma orang dungu saja yang masih lagi percaya kepada janji-janji manis pemimpin Pembangkang tersebut. Dah berkali-kali kena tipu pun masih ada orang yang boleh ditipu dengan imej warak & lakonan berkesan pemimpin tersebut.

    Menukar Kerajaan bukan semudah menukar baju atau menukar menu makanan. Lagipun dalam sekelip mata negara yang aman makmur boleh hancur cuma kerana kesilapan memilih pemimpin/Kerajaan. Lainlah kalau negara kita memang porak-peranda.

    Just look around…We are indeed very lucky…We are doing fine under BN. Our county is one of the most peaceful countries in the world. In fact our economy is a lot better than quite a number of the developed countries..kita boleh hidup mewah..aman-damai..dan boleh tidur lena..Be thankful.

    Yang membuat kacau ialah Pembangkang dan penyokong mereka. Jangan biar sesiapa pun berhimpun pada malam Kemerdekaan ke 55 nanti di Dataran Merdeka. Jika berlaku kekacauan mereka bukan mahu bertanggungjawab seperti yang belaku pada 3 perhimpunan “Bersih yang Kotor” yang lepas. Memang mereka BERJANJI untuk berhimpun dengan aman, tapi seperti biasa Pembangkang cuma pandai berjanji, dan TIDAK MENEPATI JANJI. Lagi satu, bila mereka berkuasa, mereka akan hancurkan Malaysia dan seperti biasa akan menuduh Kerajaan sedia ada di atas kehancuran tersebut; tengok saja gelagat mereka setiap kali buat salah; semuanya salah orang lian. Orang & pemimpin sebegini memang jenis yang TIDAK bertanggungjawab & pentingkan diri sendiri.

    So, Vote for BN!!!

    Thanks Tun.

    *** May Allah SWT bless Tun and family ***

    To eanisazman,

    I felt obliged to response to your comment. I hope this one is approved by the moderator/administrator.

    Tell me which part of my post do u consider me bragging? I have never said that I know everything. I have all the respect for tun and appreciate his contribution towards his country. But nobody is maksum (unless ur a prophet of god). We (including myself and tun) all make mistakes. If I can’t even comment on policies of the govt, how can I even vote them? All my statements are based on my limited knowledge (I.e. What I think is right). If you think I am wrong, then prove it. I am much open for discussion. So if u read my posts, understand my reasoning, criticise it if u want, I am always prepared to reconsider my position if it turns out to be incorrect. Merely throwing general statements like what you, eanisazman did will not get us anywhere and is really a waste of time 🙂

    thank you.

    “I beg to differ from your stereotypical view of human beings and their political condition especially concerning the Western countries which you mentioned as though they were only created yesterday.” – I NEVER SAID THOSE COUNTRIES WERE CREATED YESTERDAY.

    “The Western Democracies of today were not created overnight as assumed by you” – I NEVER MAKE THIS ASSUMPTION. PLEASE DO NOT MAKE ASSUMPTION(S) ON ME.

    “I am forced to conclude that you are not aware of the history of the world.” – LET US NOW FOCUS ON OUR HISTORY.





    WORLD HISTORY? Hmmm… Merdeka is coming soon… Let’s look at some of MALAYSIA’S HISTORY…

    Maybe many of us are not aware that, long before UMNO (established in 1988) exist, many non-UMNO, non-MCA, non-MIC, non-Gerakan, non-BN members fought against the British for independence and SOME (OR MANY) DIED IN THIS NOBLE COURSE. Even the members of the Parti Komunis Malaya (PKM) use PKM as a platform to fight against the British. Let us all remember their fight for our independence.

    Among them were…

    1. Pak Sako (a political journalist).

    2. Aziz Ishak (KMM).

    3. Ibrahim Yaacob (KMM).

    4. Abdullah CD (PKM).

    5. Ahmad Boestaman (KMM).

    6. Dr. Burhanuddin Helmy (PAS).

    7. Ustaz Abu Bakar Al- Baqir.

    8. Rashid Maidin (PKM).

    9. Shamsiah Fakeh (PKM).

    10. Chin Peng (PKM).

    11. Mat Indera (PKMM and API) – Hanged by the British for the Bukit Kepong incident.

    12. Tok Janggut.

    13. Dato Maharajalela.

    14. Abdul Rahman Limbong.

    15. Dol Said.

    16. And many more…

    Among the organizations which fought against the British for our independence are :-

    1. Parti Komunis Malaya (1930).

    2. Kesatuan Melayu Muda (1938).

    3. Angkatan Pemuda Insaf (1946).

    4. Angkatan Wanita Sedar (1946).

    5. Hizbul Muslimin (1948) – which became PAS.

    6. Parti Islam Semalaysia (PAS).

    6. Parti Kebangsaan Melayu Malaya (1945).

    Almost all of the above organizations were made illegal and were banned by the British.

    “Malaysia need not and did not go to war to achieve the peaceful aims of those you lauded over. Maybe this was done so peacefully and happily, you never noticed !” – MORE THAN 11,000 PEOPLE DIED FOR MALAYA IN THE FIGHT FOR FREEDOM.

    I WOULD PREFER TO VISIT OUR NATIONAL MONUMENT (TUGU NEGARA) RATHER THAN visiting the War Cemeteries in the Flanders, Normandy, Cambridgeshire, Cenotaph in Whitehall, Westminster Abbey, London or the National Cemetary, Arlington, Washington DC. 11,000 people died for Malaya.

    UMNO became the ‘hero’ of our independence because UMNO agreed to share the power with the Chinese and Indians.

    By right, UMNO, MCA and MIC have no right to negotiate with the British for our independence. Only the Malays Rules have the right to do so. The Malay Rulers are the legitimate owners of Persekutuan Tanah Melayu, not UMNO, MCA and MIC. UMNO, MCA and MIC did not sign the Federation Of Malaya Independence Act with the British but The Malay Rulers did.

    Even if we believe that UMNO is the hero for our independence, yes that’s true for the previous UMNO (ceased to exisst in 1987) but the current UMNO was established only in 1988 (with Tun Mahathir being the 1st member). Our independence is in 1957.

    As mentioned in my previous comments, THERE ARE TOO MANY COUNTRIES (DEVELOPED AND ALSO DEVELOPING COUNTRIES) IN THIS WORLD WHICH HAD CHANGED THEIR GOVERNMENT. Just name them… Thailand, Philippines, Japan, South Korea, Taiwan, USA, UK, France, Australia, New Zealand and many more.


    Pakatan Rakyat is definitely not going to be the best ever government. Pakatan Rakyat is definitely not going to be a perfect government. PAKATAN RAKYAT WILL DEFINITELY NOT BE ABLE TO FULFILL ALL THEIR PROMISES. It is not the end of the world for Malaysia if we change our government. But it is definitely the end for all corrupt BN’s politicians. THAT’S WHY THEY ARE TOO AFRAID IF WE CHANGE OUR GOVERNMENT.

    I don’t care whether Anwar Ibrahim practice so**my. I don’t care whether Nik Aziz wants to cut-off people’s hand. I don’t care whether Lim Guan Eng going to give 999 years lease of land to the Chinese.

    I don’t care about PR’s promises. My conscience is crystal clear that PR will never be able to fulfill all their promises. What I care is…





    These four major things really give direct impact on my life, on my family’s life, on kids life, on the future of my kids.


    Maybe UMNO should change their English name to a Malay name like PKMB?

    World need to Change
    It is very vital
    World cannot recognised United Nation

    France asking the European Country to implement
    The Limited No Fly Zone in Syria without United Nation Mandate
    Is telling the UN Mandate they are not in power

    Of all United Nation is formed by European
    to benefits their interest, to meet their Agenda
    And these are very wrong of the Foundation,the purpose
    Of United Nation
    Botak calls the United Nation to be abolised
    Not for the World to Acknowledge
    It is meant for the Western World

    The Existance of United Nation
    If cannot recognised Human Civilzation
    The foundations is double standards
    Must not be acknowledge
    The existance is Illegal

  28. truthseeker Aug 25,2012 11:26 AM

    Assallammualaikum Tun dan rakan2 bloggers,

    1. Mubarakchan, TQVM for your history lesson. Only those who have the capacity to think at a higher level (according to bloom’s taxonomy – cognitive) will be able to know kaca and intan, will be able to see like what mubarakchan is seeing and experiencing.

    2. Meaning? those shallow thinkers who want ‘regime change’ are those unable to analyze the situations in our beloved country.

    3. Why BN? Simply because;

    – the native/tuan tanah of this country, the malays have shown they are compassionate lot, peace-loving, full of consideration, tolerance, acceptance, etc. Even though the
    chineses and indians were pendatang asing (before becoming the rakyat), the malays still showed respect to them. If I am not mistaken, the late Sambanthan had reiterated about the Indians were rejected in other countries but Malaysia accepted them. A lone chinese could live among the malays without fear. Then only came UMNO and most of these good malays supported UMNO.

    – the first allowed chinese political party is MCA and for the indians, the MIC. The followers of these two parties know about the social contract and they appreciate the tuan tanah’s good gestures. They are the grateful lots.

    – therefore, based on this social contract, the 3 formed BN (of course, with other component parties too).

    – yes, there is no denying that there are hiccups, tensions among the BN members, but it is just like sibling rivalry. Yes, some BN leaders are no-good corrupted people, opportunists *(taking advantage just because people like me want BN)

    – proofs? just look around us, of course you need to look through history, our constitutions…then only one can see the wonderful people of all races in this wonderful land. How by working together, all the races helped this country to excel, becoming one of the better players globally. Look at most of the ratings on global competitiveness and you will see this country among the top ones. Other countries have political parties too that run the government but why are they not performing? Simply because BN has better leaders. You want to say something about Singapore being the top 3 in most categories? Better don’t. Singapore is up there but yet it refused to help the malays (or maybe on purpose); there is no special program to help the malays (please read Suriani Suratman from NUS papers and Mohamed Imran from the Reading Group).

    4. These are my analyses;
    – DAP is the best for those who are malay/muslim haters; look at their policies, actions, planning, etc. That may explain why some chinese leaders from BN joined DAP. There is nothing wrong to fight for one own race (like what MCA, MIC are doing), but DAP fights differently, to take from the malays, not sharing. DAP will do like what the chinese leaders in singapore are doing…taking the malay lands and treating the malays like shit. Maybe some of you have not seen lee kuan yew putting on the songkok in the sixties, went to meet the malay folks (and they were thrilled to see him with songkok – now hannah yeoh with tudung and baju kurung) and after getting the malay votes…..look at how they are treating the malays there. After 42 years, only…a one-star malay general (the lowest of the generals) was born…my god. Here in Malaysia, by right, according to the proportion of races in ATM, the highest rank for a chinese would be a major and for the indians, maybe a leutenant colonel, but there are dozens of generals, you know that? simply because the malays are respecting others. The malay professionals association in singapore went to see lee kuan yew to protest about the malays being discriminated through meritocracy and lee kuan yew gave them the ultimatum; take it or leave it. our PM never do such things.

    – PKR is most suitable for fun lovers, hedonistic kind of people. Looking at the numero uno leader anwar, anybody who wants fun, free to do nonsense will definitely choose this party. Our youth becomes more aggressive, arrogant, stubborn, demonstrating anti-social behaviors all due to anwar’s influence and teachings. Take a look at their strategies in sending their young leaders to be trained by ngos (according to hillary clinton, their smart ngos, the new kind of military), to become aggressive leaders in future. But sad to say, those who believes that PKR is for keadilan will be disappointed later on to see they get raw deal from their own leaders. According to ex-anwar special assistant who left him, wan azizah got a cheque worth RM5 million under her name (not for her personally) but not a single cent went to PKR; nurul got cash USD200k from estrada, but not a single cent went to PKR…keadilan my foot. – for those unbelievers, checkout lokman adam’s blog. He was very close to anwar once. but we all know very well that anwar is just a clown for DAP is the master in PR.

    – PAS is suitable for the extremist in Islam, for those who seeks forgiveness from Allah (but being used for political reasons like some of those ex-artistes, what a pity). But, we all know that PAS votes will eventually be given to DAP, the real god for nik aziz, hadi awang and the rest of the fools in PAS. God wants us to look around us, but we failed to see how PAS failed after more than 20 years in kelantan; how DAP put their feet on PAS heads in Selangor, in Penang…my god, PAS leaders know the real situations but yet go on lying to the grassroots (but these grassroots are idiots too, they refused to think).

    Conclusions? Use your brain, my man…none of the parties are perfect, all have weaknesses, but we need to choose the one with the least damaging weakness. I choose BN.

    Assalamu’alaikum Tun,

    kita perlukan Perubahan.tapi bukan merubah parti yg memerintah.sebalik nya,parti yg memerintah lah yg perlu berubah secara berterusan.Umno perlu berubah.

    Umno dan penakatan Bangsa Melayu sedang berhadapan ancaman serious dari Pakatan Rakyat.dan Pakatan Rakyat itu sendiri sedang diperkuda oleh supramacist-china sebagai alat untuk menjatuhkan Umno.

    Umno perlu meremajakan diri nya semula.pemimpin-pemimpin lama nya harus berundur secara terhormat.dan pemimpin-pemimpin muda yg lebih bertenaga dan kurang dosa harus diberi peluang dan tanggung-jawab yg lebih besar.

    secara zahir nya Umno cuma berhadapan dgn Pakatan Rakyat.tapi sebenar nya yg kita hadapi ialah bencana yg sangat besar iaitu supramacist-china didikkan Lee kuanyew

    terimakasih Tun

    Good morning YAB,

    110. I won’t be going to YAB’s Open Raya House.

    111. I am not a fan of Tun Dr Mahathir bin Mohamad.

    112. I am not a fan of Mr Lee Kuan Yew either.

    113. As blogger, I have promised to vote BN in this 13th general election because of YAB.


    115. I sincerely hope that YAB as UMNO Baru No. 1 member, YAB shall take this court case as an opportunity to show Malaysians that UMNO lama veterans are not above the law 1st.

    Good day, YAB.

  31. mubarakchan Aug 24,2012 11:19 PM


    For the Hidden Secret.

    I beg to differ from your stereotypical view of human beings and their political condition especially concerning the Western countries which you mentioned as though they were only created yesterday.

    Your comment is too lighthearted and merit some notice.

    I am forced to conclude that you are not aware of the history of the world.

    The many wars which were conducted at the behest of one Western power or another – What were they fighting for ? For territorial gains and power to make money.

    The Hidden Secret please visit the War Cemeteries in the Flanders, Normandy, Cambridgeshire or if time does not permit you, go and have a look see at the Cenotaph in Whitehall or the Westminster Abbey, London or the National Cemetary, Arlington, Washington DC.

    All these graves belong to the young men or women who died in action.

    The Western Democracies of today were not created overnight as assumed by you.

    Millions of lives were lost in the many wars which were fought over many centuries, only sometimes in the name of freedom and democracy which were mainly American inspired. The British and the French do not die for freedom.

    At the end of the day, it was the atomic bomb which stopped the major conflagrations but the small scale wars of attrition remained to this day.

    Malaysia is unique if you would kindly take note that from a completely colonial territory filled with a diverse and compartmentalised populace, she managed to be cohesive as a Nation for so long, 60 years.

    The British fumbled at first with the Malayan Union in 1946 (Malay Spring) which was replaced by the Federation of Malaya in 1950. Thanks to the practice of humanity and multiculturalism by the Royal Sultans, UMNO and its allies, most inhabitants were accepted as citizens.

    Malaysia need not and did not go to war to achieve the peaceful aims of those you lauded over. Maybe this was done so peacefully and happily, you never noticed !

    What does a change of Government mean in Malaysia today ?

    It is this. The Malays and Bumiputras would have lost their UMNO a world class icon and replaced by just one very rich distinguished gentleman of a party belonging to his family. If his allies lasted that long, one of them is the Trojan horse of a foreign potentate and the other has sincere and isoteric views. All of them tasted the sweetness of victory only as late as 2008 because those who were charged with looking after public interests, looked elsewhere !

    The Malays would have lost their icon which guards all their well-being and wherewithal, UMNO – the only such political entity in the world which has so far been successful in the existing turmoil of the clash of civilisations. This is precisely what the enemies of the Malays want to see happen !

    Even with the loss of the Kingdom of Patani and the Melaka Sultanate, the Malays should stand tall and proud that they have marched into the 21st Century with their world class icon, UMNO. What is there to be ashame of ? Be strong and proud !

    Say ‘No’ to the naysayers, the troublemakers, the detractors etc.

    Why listen to envious bystanders who live in glass houses or who have proven to have feet of clay ?

    Without a fort to guard the treasures of the Malays like the history, royal heritage, religion, culture, socio-economic endeavours, ambitions, aspirations, etc., where would be my compatriots the Malays ?

    Not forgetting our unique system of the Royal Sultanates, the Yang Di Pertuan Agong and the Constitution which uniquely belong to the Malays and also us, the non-Malays.

    Because without the legitimacy of the Malays to rule, the non-Malays would be as ineffective as a block of stone and vice-versa.

    This is a fact in a raw analysis of the frivolous calls for a change of Government !

    A change to benefit whom ? The change must be for benefit of the Rakyat.

    And if the Opposition and the BN as led by UMNO have no ideological differences, why change if due to some administrative mistakes made by some careless digits which were exploited by interested parties for a change in Government ?

    Let me assure you The Hidden Secret that Malaysia is a difficult country to rule if you do not know how because there are so many different types of human beings living here. For example, Malaysia has the most number of different clans of Chinamen outside of China.

    Talking, talking is not the way to change a Government.

    Malaysia needs a strong fort manned by many to maintain the momentum of development of the famous 22 year Administration of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad or else the icons, milestones, achievements, landmarks etc will be destroyed. This is the nature of things to come.

    And the strong fort should be the BN as led by UMNO. There is nothing to be a shame about for being in power for over 55 years because progressive politics means evolutionary politics like what had taken place in the past and should be so in the future. Vide. Wikipedia. The Hidden Secret. Hitler’s 1000 year Reich lasted just 11 years !

    Please remember The Hidden Secret, no one is going to cry for us Malaysians.

    Vote BN always !

  34. amin tan Aug 24,2012 4:48 PM

    Dear Tun,

    Please allow me to copy and paste the following article taken from ‘Islam Today’

    //Reform is the Best Option
    Sheikh Salman al-Oadah
    Tue, 05/01/2012

    Society’s best option is to undergo change and adapt to its ever-changing needs on an ongoing basis. In a good number of countries, people have come up with mechanisms to measure the pulse of society and come up with the appropriate responses. It is as if what the people are saying to each other casually on the street and in private provides a true indication of what is supposed to be taking place.

    This task is carried out in the developed world by think tanks and research centres, which give recommendations and advice to decision makers. The studies provided by these institutions go into impressive detail, providing in-depth statistical analysis and graphic representations of the opinions, needs and aspirations of people in society, to ensure that policy reflects the people’s concerns and can respond to changing social needs. The pulse of the street is of paramount concern. This is where the mood of the people is evident. Are they content? Do they feel stifled by their circumstances? Is there widespread dissatisfaction and a sense of alienation – conditions that can erupt in unexpected ways if decision-makers are unmindful or of society’s pulse or unresponsive to its needs.

    Karl Marx had expected revolution to occur in the leading capitalist countries, since those were the wealthy countries possessing a large underclass. However, this is not what happened. Instead, the communist revolutions took place in poor agrarian countries like China and Tzarist Russia. The reason why it happened this way is that the leaders of Europe were quick to realise the danger communism posed and gave to the working classes many rights and entitlements, like paid vacation time. They also opened the doors to free expression, which allowed the people to articulate their grievances clearly and openly. In this way, those countries were able to bypass the revolutionary current that had been fomenting among the people.

    Despotic regimes, to their own detriment, have a hard time determining the needs of the people and responding to the inevitable changes that take place in society. These regimes fear any kind of change, dreading the possibility of their own obsolescence. Ideally, the time at hand should be invested in, not through token gestures like price controls, loans and salary increases to temporarily pacify the people, or through arresting some minor officials involved in small-scale corruption. Rather, substantial changes are needed that will do away with the underlying causes of social unrest, beginning with loosening the grip on political power as well as the political and economic disenfranchisement of broad swathes of the population, and ending with guaranteeing the people’s political and civil rights, especially that of free speech.

    Many people in the world are disillusioned with the regimes under which they live and have zero confidence in their governments’ ability to enact real reform, after so many years of disappointment. Nevertheless, to escape from the present political crisis, it is unavoidable for such counties, among them the Arab states, to move in the direction of greater openness and start making concessions regarding the people’s rights and the rule of law. There needs to be a rethinking of the relationship between the government and the governed, and not the old recipe of repressive crackdowns accompanied by repetitive slogans. The new basis of this relationship needs to be the will of the people, and this requires the assurance of their rights and human dignity.

    In the early history of the Muslim Caliphate, the governor of Khorasan, al-Jarrāh b. `Abd Allah, wrote to the caliph `Umar b. `Abd al-`Azīz, saying:
    Peace be upon you. The people of Khorasan have become rebellious. They are fit for nothing but the lash and the sword. If the Commander of the Faithful sees fit to allow me to enact such a policy, I will do so.
    `Umar b. `Abd al-`Azīs responded as follows:
    I have read your letter wherein you mention that the people of Khorasan have become rebellious and are fit for nothing but the lash and the sword, and wherein you seek my permission to enact such a policy. You have lied. What they are fit for is to receive justice and their rights. Enact that among them. And peace to you too.
    What is needed, furthermore, is an acceptance of plurality and tolerance of dissention. These must be taken as a given, as constituting an essential part of a balanced social contract. People have differing needs and aspirations, which need to be brought into harmony in a way that guarantees equal rights to all as well as an equal opportunity for political participation. This social contract is entered into with the willing consent of the parties concerned. As Allah says: “…with their mutual consent.” [Sūrah al-Nisā’: 29] It also requires that the conditions and obligations which exist between the government and the governed are respected and honoured. Allah commands: “Fulfil your contractual agreements.” [Sūrah al-Mā’idah: 1] This not only ensures the freedom and rights of the people, but it ensures national security as well, in its most universal sense, which does not favour the security of one small sector of society (generally the rulers) at the expense of everyone else.

    Sometimes “national security” is used as an excuse to undermine the security of whole ethnic groups, or to strip them of their liberty and rights, or deny them their sanctity as individuals.

    At the opposite extreme, revolutionary zeal makes people disregard the importance of national security and stability, postponing these essential matters indefinitely, even at the expense of building a just society. We see this mindset today among the Arab people when they say things like: “Anyone who comes along is better than what we are living under now. We’ve seen enough despotism, humiliation, corruption, and poverty.”

    Change, however it comes about, is perceived as a bold new opportunity with the potential to bring the people out of their present quagmire. In truth, the most important element it contains is the role that the people play in determining their own future.

    Many people cast doubts upon the history of revolutions, especially those who benefit from the status quo or identify themselves with it. The same can be said for those who see the present situation as a perilous slope, but dread that what comes after it is an abyss. These people are victims of their own despair.

    Others entertain doubts of a different kind, by weighing the pros and cons and coming to the conclusion that the short-term venting of frustrations is not worth the very dear price in lives, property, and social cohesion.

    However, those who are unwilling to pay the price for change will have to pay the price for refusing to change. There is still a very good opportunity for serious reform, by dealing with people respectfully and with transparency. This is the best option whenever it is possible. There are plenty of good examples around the world to draw lessons from. Canada, for instance, is one of many countries that arrived at democracy without any revolution or war ever taking place.

    The strategy of looking at long-term objectives and consequences will have us considering the realization of universal principles like human rights, freedom, justice, and the curbing of corruption in the spirit of reform. When these ideals can be achieved with the least pain and loss, then this is what accords with the teachings and spirit of Islam.

    There are those who feel they are immune to change, arguing that their country has endured for decades just as it is. This logic is like that of an old man citing his advanced age as proof that he is immune to death.//

    Good afternoon YAB,


    78. If Malaysian Human Resource Minister is confident, and can convince PM and Malaysian Government to consider this option via government to government, he should not be afraid.

    79. In 1900, British Government imported Indian and Chinese labors to work in rubber estates and tin mines in Malaya.

    80. 100 years later, the Malaysian Government, imports them again.

    81. We, Malaysians, have come a very long way.

    82. Malaysia is blessed with huge land reserves, natural resources, tropical weather and industrialization.

    83. The only obstacle that BN is blocking themselves from excel is “ego and race politics”.

    84. Jika ahli2 politik Bumiputra dan UMNO di negeri2 Malaysia masih degil dan ingat pengambilan sumber kemanusiaan daripada jiran-jiran orang-orang Indonesia, kononya, kerana belas kesihan, boleh menentukan nasib pentadbiran Ketuanan Melayu UMNO adalah tidak “haram”, they will be voted out in the future elections.

    85. Like what YAB said, “Better the devil you know than the angel you don’t.”

    86. But angel knows very well what these devils have done a to Malaysian election.

    87. Why the angel still supporting these devils?

    Good day, YAB.

    Salaam Tun,

    If the opposition can make promises, the BN government too should make promises.

    If they promise to give 20% royalty, they might take back in some other ways. Their economic team might rely on future incomes and economic expansions of the country and make adjustments before hand. Like making plans on presumed future incomes.

    If BN want to make promises, they should do some of the things promised rightaway and not waiting after the election. BN should not lose this election at all costs. At this stage in time the BN has the advantage and they should make full use of this.

    The BN government should play by their rules and not to give them the chance to cheat.

    What Tun has just said are unfortunately all so true.

    Thank you.

  37. iskandar shah 2 Aug 24,2012 2:01 PM

    Salam Tun

    1-Interesting that you recognize that the BN has already become a devil.What made it one is simply that absolute power we once gave her.The BN politicians thought the people will have no choice but to keep returning them to power whatever or however they were.Khir Toyo was so in cloud 9 that he had the nerve of giving a broom in public to disgrace a public servant.The rest of them were busy accumulating wealth purchasing properties that their politician or even a minister pay could never afford.

    2-Yes absolute power corrupts absolutely.It was the Tsunami of 08 that brought them down though not many have hit the earth yet.I think this is a very normal process of growth of any component of a civilization.BN was truly lucky that they were given a shock treatment only and not fall in the way of the Congress party of India.God has given them a chance.BN must change and I think they really are changing.Let us give them 5 more years to see this change.If none come PRU14 will change them?

    3-I think many must accept that Malaysia had been created with this unique citizenship situation where non locals were given citizenship even though they have not recognized the local language and local people as the original people of the country.This dangerous time bomb nature of our country cannot be simply handled by people without the experience except by the people who created it in the first place.The only acceptable party that could handle such a situation must be like composed opposition which the PR is definitely not.

    4-If we have parties the equivalent of MCA,MIC and UMNO on the other side I think a rgime change could be affected every 5 years.But here we have the most ridiculous of alliances of parties that is just impossible to work together except just during the election campaign period.PAS and DAP is like langit and bumi.The only glue is PKR that ridiculous party that is strongly for democracy but is led by the holy trinity of the father,the mother and daughter .

    5-The only credibility of the father is his awesome gift of the gab.He has the ability to convince people that black is actually white.A man whose skin is so thick that inspite of all the obvious evidences he could still face up to the public claiming that it is not his tummy although not once ever denying that it was his face.

    6-Being his once admirer and loyal supporter since the student days I am just too familiar with ‘convincing’ antics.In the last election I remembered his usual..If we ‘win’ today, tomorrow itself we will change the whatever…wuh yoo..Now its almost 5 years in Selangor but the management of the MPSJ has not become any better.All the organic rubbish that I have thrown out that used to be cleared at least two days after but now it takes almost a week and lately even just rot to the earth.

    7-I am ever ready for change but we can’t just change because we are bored with the BN.Let us remember that the reason why the US ,through Al Gore supporting Anwar to change the BN in 1998 is because the BN was powerful enough not to let it meddle as it please with our sovereignity.Their masters were not happy at how Mahathir has exposed their speculators collaborating with the IMF to take control of nations.Indonesia was ‘destroyed ‘ of its sovereignity by the crisis.Their car and aviation industry was ended by it. Islam is now strongly challenged in ‘democratic’ Indonesia like never before.

    8-It is not just about changing to PR and if we don’t like we change back to BN.It could be just the moment we change to this agent of the Zionist/freemason Organization we would be stuck in the devil’s spell forever.PAS and the Muslims lawmakers in PKR would be only busy making money for themselves that they would be party to any scheming done against Islam by the powers that be which they themselves may not be so aware of.How they Zionist masters have corrupted the politicians of the USA they will do the same with our politicians.They would be rendered just as impotent.

    9-Maybe then ‘they’ will let the time bomb they have engineered in 1957 to finally explode to work out their actual plan for Malaysia and Singapore…

    10-Better recreate and trust the angel you once know than the angel you know is the devil’s friend.

    Thanks Tun

    Talk of change..this ‘old’ Samuraimelayu has changed from the ‘sword-brandishing’ days to a ‘ sitting on the dock of the bay’ watching the tide roll away fellow.. reminiscencing

    1. As a poor but a bright pupil ( always top 3 in class fr std1-6) never had the benefit of rm10 scholarship and/or any financial help of any kind from the government but finished my tertiary studies in ITM as a Gold Medallist!

    2. Even my princess 4 yrs. study ( Masters in Arch.) in Robert Gordon were financd by the F & M foundation

    No grouses from this grateful and thankful rakyat of this beloved country which has developed and prospered through the excellent planning of the Perikatan/BN 55years rule especially during the 22 yrs our Ayahanda Tun was at the helm.

    Malaysia have received much praises from people world over and amongst our proudest moments were
    1. Tan Sri Razali Ismail on the rostrum of the UN Security Council in his Baju Melayu and S.O.B (Songkok Orang Besar) giving his maiden speech as the president of the council.

    2. From Malaysia? Dr. Mahathirr/Mahatherr…Thumbs Up!

    3. Many more.. will take too much space to mention..

    Then we reminisced Ayahanda Tun No. 2 Man visit to the USA which received a 21-gun salute which the head of state of Malaysia was never accorded, the experiences of a Ferrari & Porsche, Ferragamo and Patek Phillipe, the courtesy of that fellow cronies..
    The rest… as in a song,
    let it be, le it be, let it be, let it be .. whispering words of wisdom, let it be..


    Ps.. Ingin bertanya.. bila nak adakan rumah terbuka, Ayahanda dan Bonda Rakyat yang sangat kami kasihi?

  39. genius Aug 24,2012 12:51 PM

    Tun yang dihormati,
    dan pembaca sekalian,

    1. Learn from the best. Learn from other mistake is better than learn from our own mistake. That foolish. We have to do more mistake in order to learned? Too risky. We might lose everything we built …
    2. Observe and analyse. Never make assumption, jump into conclusion, or take too big risk.
    3. Pray to Allah swt to seek guidance as to err is human.
    4. Its very pain to see Malaysian being manipulated… and tearing us apart
    5. Malaysian destiny is in the hand of the voter.
    6. Last but not least please vote wisely.

    Thank you

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Saya pernah baca Datuk Mukhriz pernah bercerita bahawa pada satu masa dahulu Tun berani tumbuk meja kalau ada sesiapa berani tuduh Anwar Ibrahim.

    Apabila Anwar dipecat Datuk Mukhriz juga pernah bercerita ketika dalam perjalanan,di dalam kereta bahawa Tun mempercayai Anwar lebih dari Anwar mempercayai Tun.

  42. HBT456 Aug 24,2012 8:39 AM


    65. Malaysia is a secular country.

    66. Today, Malay states can opt for Islamic status.

    67. No one will stop the MBs.

    68. Malay states are aging as many of their younger people have moved out to earn rezeki in developed states.

    69. Mukhriz has a choice for MB Kedah to develop Kedah.

    70. Does Mukhriz wants it?

    71. Today, Mukhriz is more comfortable with his new home in KLFT, next in Dutamas as MITI DM aiming for MITI full minister post to show us what he got?

    72. Putting billboards with the faces of politicians will only make the more educated US of all races, the voters, not to buy their political campaigns.

    73. No one is above the law cannot be solved in hurry,

    74. It can be backfired BN that make PR the victor to re-write history.

    75. However, PM and BN can have a choice not to put their faces on the billboards and banners like what YAB has done in the past.

    76. Change this style first to show BN politicians are more matured in political campaigning and that BN is the better choice for the people using taxpayers’ monies.

    Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri, YAB.

    In response to – cvco.., who commented on August 23, 2012 at 8:17 am

    Despite whatever intention and strategy that Barack Obama had in-mind for change to USA after he becomes the US President, nonetheless his promise for change was perceived and believed by the naïve majority of Americans is the change that would improve their livelihood as well as the change to be a total departure from that of President George W. Bush’s dreadful policies.

    When George W. Bush (a Republican) was elected into office as the 43rd US President, his immediate task was to perpetrate a false-flag operation (on behalf of those evil Zionists) in orchestrating the 9-11 Tragedy to culminate his agenda for a ‘Clash of Civilisation’ between The West and Islam as well as to create a ‘War on Terror’. Since 11th September 2001 and till this day, George W. Bush and his cohorts are still free from any blame for that horrific 9-11 crime.

    Ironically though, when Barack Obama (a Democrat) took over as the 44th US President, he had echoed Bush’s lies and deceit in validating that the 9-11 Tragedy was perpetrated by Arab-Muslim terrorists armed with box-cutters who had hijacked commercial jetliners and slammed those planes into The WTC Towers and The Pentagon Building. In short, despite Bush & Obama being from opposing political parties, nevertheless it is obvious that both the Republican and Democrat political party leaders are ‘owned’ by the ‘hidden powers-that-be’ who rule USA behind the scenes through their ‘proxy’ Presidents. Those ‘hidden powers-that-be’ make sure to it that any notion the 9-11 Incident was an ‘Inside Job’ is strictly off-limits for discussion or scrutiny by any US Senators & Congressmen. Even those honest and well-meaning US Congressmen like say, Ron Paul (Republican-Libertarian) or Dennis Kucinich (Democrat) would stay clear from any idea that 9-11 was an ‘Inside-Job’ and they would not dare speak beyond their breath on such ‘prohibited’ issues.

    You are partially correct to suggest that religion is not the core issue. However, you are incorrect to suggest that it is all about money. You are also incorrect to suggest that Obama aims to have total control of people. Obama is a mere puppet and puppets are controlled by those who pull the strings. The ‘controllers’ of Obama would want it to appear that Obama have full control over the people and nation when he signed on December 31, 2011, The National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) into law. Thus, Obama’s task is not to turn USA into a Communist state but rather into a Fascist state.

    You are further incorrect to suggest that The Rothschild aims to have total control of money. The Rothschild already have total control of fiat money the world over, through their Central Banks. However, you fail to realise that even the powerful and dreaded Rothschild have satanic Master(s) to answer to. But, let’s not get into that for now.

    You may be correct in forecasting that the rest of us will follow the problems straight into world chaos and hard times. However, that is the fatalistic snd defeatist attitude. You have thus ‘not changed’ when you merely hate what you see and do nothing about it.

    Moving on to the local Malaysian scene, Barisan Nasional must not concede to the onslaught for the so-called ‘change’ instigated by another Globalist cum New World Order puppet in the likes of Anwar Ibrahim. Anwar’s lustful urge for the political power and limelight that knows no boundaries is well-known. But such conceited political urges would not do any good for the people nor the nation of Malaysia. As suggested by Dr. Mahathir, all that the people need to do is to urge the BN Government to carry out whatever change the people desire, rather than changing the government that would most probably turn the nation and people of Malaysia into total disorder and turmoil.

    As an endnote, you said that.., “This means that as in Malaysia, if people don’t like one side and they don’t like the other side either, how does one vote?” Well, the answer is so simple. In a Democratic society, you are free to create and form your own side…!! OK..!?

    My humble opinion to Iran

    America,Israel has the high urge to attack you
    On baseless ground
    Your nuclear plant is just a lame excuse

    It is right for you to assits Syria now
    President Assad needs you
    As the Rebels were instigated by America such as to weaken
    Syria,perhaps as a base to attack you if the Rebels were to win
    The rebels are fighting a blind war
    Their loves are killed incidently
    Prevailing instigations by Europe,by America
    That what wage the war
    It,s not of civil war
    It,s instigated war design by America,by NATO

  45. truthseeker Aug 24,2012 1:04 AM

    Assallammualaikum YAB TUN,

    Why PR leaders keep on making empty promises? Simply because;
    1. there are Malaysians who refused to think but only make judgment based on their emotions…especially the malays (even though other races are emotional too but they cannot beat the malays – most malays). Since they trust their feelings so much, they do not need to see the facts, evident, proofs. Opportunists know about this, that’s why they keep on making promises that satisfies these feelings.

    2. the government is not punishing them (those making false promises) – I’m sure there are laws protecting the people from cheats, liars, misrepresentation, etc.

    3. the people/public are not punishing these evil people – they should exercise their rights to report these unscrupulous people

    4. parents, employers, leaders are not showing the truths, convincing their charges about the empty promises – google all the promises made by PR and show which of them are fulfilled and unfulfilled. They should not just depend on the government to proof the truths.

    Sometimes I think that those cheating leaders are just being themselves – evil-minded, greedy, devil, liars, etc, but the listeners are the ones should be blamed because they failed to use what Allah has given them…a lot.

  46. Bothman Aug 24,2012 1:02 AM

    Askm Tun, semuga Allah SWT sentiasa memberi nekmat kesihatan, physical & mental agar Tun dapat terus menyumbang idea kpd keamanan, kesejahteraan & kemakmuran negara.

    I share and fully agree to Tun’s comments and they said it all:

    “23. The BN has listened to the people and has changed many laws and policies. All that the people need to do is to urge the BN to carry out whatever change the people desire.”

    It is really sad to see that still many Islam Malays are easily influenced by leaders of the opposition with promises for change. The people must remember, as what your have right said, change for what when they don’t truly have experience to govern the country for the better? He once has a chance when in government as your deputy but what has he to show then? Except to go-up the ladder to power, by whatever means he can use.

    “25. Better the devil you know than the angel you don’t.” That’s also my philosophy in life which is more safer to adopt. Since we need to elect represetatives to form government and to govern the country, we have no other choice but to chose the better of the 2 evils and track record will be the best proof for the right choice. As such, any change required by the people, should be better dealt within BN/UMNO.

    Because Malaysia is so unique, we must do it in our way ( you have proven this during many occasions including the classic Asian financial crisis ) and not so dependent on others to dictate to us what, how to do. These people may actually not even have stepped foot on Malaysian soil to truly understand Malaysia. What should we really care about their views?

    May Allah bless us all & be grateful for what we presently have.

  47. fzal Aug 24,2012 12:26 AM

    May peace be upon you Tun,

    FI am just a Malaysian working with standard average pay in KL. I am not fond of BN nor PR. But when it comes to voting, I have no choice but to choose the best.

    Now, you said that BN is now “listening”, and does that mean BN weren’t really listening to the people back then (including during your time). Which one is it?

    When it comes to voting in the next GE, young voters like me don’t really care so much about what the government have done in the past. Believe me, we appreciate what you have done so far via BN. But it does not mean that things cannot be any better.

    What do i mean what I talk about “better”. Lets talk compare the policies. I will just take one i.e. the duties on cars imposed under BN’s rule. Anyway, here is my take on our current automotive policy: it is unfair and prejudicial to the people. Reasons:
    (a) we are paying a high proportion of our income on cars (sales tax is understandable, but excise duty is too much, Dato);
    (b) the rakyat is actually taking loan from banks to pay for taxes imposed on cars;
    (c) on top of that, we have to pay interests to banks.

    From the above, it is clear that only banks and our “national” car companies are getting the benefit from this. I understand that this policy was done to protect our national car, but I do not think we do have any national car since the takeover of Proton by DRB. The more reason that the excise tax should go. Plus, even with the abolishment of the excise tax, proton can be sold even cheaper.

    BN keeps putting argument that the removal of excise duty is economically flawed and will bankrupt the country etc. For me, niat tak menghalalkan cara. Just because you want to protect local car manufacturers (including suppliers) who I see happen to be quite comfy with their lives, it does not mean that you can ask the rakyat to take loan (pay interest) to pay high taxes on top of the price of the car. It is simple wrong, unethical and unjust. I am sure you know ada hadith yang kata pemimpin tidak adil tidak akan bau haruman syurga.

    Rather than saying the removal will bankrupt the country, why can’t the government propose something like this. We should be focusing on why the abolishment needs to be done rather than saying that it is not workable. If you believe that this is an unfair policy, then we figure out how we must do it. Believe me, the people may not have a choice. Some may even vote Pakatan because of their hatred towards BN. In addition to that, they are offering something that is really workable in my view (based on saudara rafizi’s personal explanation on the policy). At least they are committing to something rather than saying “reducing the burden of the rakyat” is not economical.

    So, with all due respect, I disagree with your last statement. If I go by your logic, it would be impossible for someone to change for the better as we always let the evil devil to rule and allow those plenty questionable deals surrounding the devil. Sampai bila tak akan berubah. As for the angel we don’t know, sure… I know they have made promises (some maybe a bit over the top according to the devil). Honestly i can never know if they will deliver such promises if/when they win. But from my analysis of the angel so far, the angel has done a lot more in the states under its control than the devil have done in the past 50 years. How they manage government so far is quite convincing to me notwithstanding the fact that they lack the powers of the federal government which includes plenty of areas such as the control over the budget, army and police, education etc. Honestly, I am getting sick and tired of all the corrupt practices under the devil’s administration that have been going on for so long. The people have given the devil so many chances to change, but I think the devil has failed. Those leakages costs tax payers money! Based on the auditor generals report, I think if the Govt can do away with all these leakages, those promises by the angel CAN be met without having to bankrupt the country. So if I had to choose between the devil i know and the angel I don’t, I would pick the angel i don’t simply because I NO LONGER HAVE A CHOICE.

    Have a good day tun 🙂

  48. The Hidden Secret Aug 23,2012 11:52 PM

    Salam Tun.

    Inilah politik namanya….

    Buruk orang kita nampak… buruk orang kita canang. Buruk diri sendiri kita buat-buat tak nampak… buruk diri sendiri kita sembunyikan… buruk diri sendiri kita tak nak mengaku… buruk diri sendiri kita pertahankan. Kebaikan sendiri kita canang-canangkan walaupun itu adalah amanah serta tanggungjawab kita sebenarnya.

    Ahli-ahli parti di dalam BN serta penyokong-penyokong BN semuanya akan memperkatakan perkara-perkara yang buruk tentang PR. Semuanya akan nampak keburukan PR sahaja. Bila ada ahli politik BN yang buat tak betul, ahli-ahli parti dalam BN serta penyokong BN akan senyap.

    Yang di dalam PR pun sama juga. Semuanya akan memperkatakan perkara-perkara buruk tentang BN. Semuanya akan nampak keburukan BN sahaja. Bila ada ahli politik PR yang buat tak betul, ahli-ahli parti dalam PR serta penyokong PR akan senyap.

    Oleh yang demikian, perlukah kita menjadi penyokong tegar kepada BN ataupun PR sehingga kita tidak mahu mengakui perkara-perkara tidak baik yang dilakukan oleh pihak yang kita sokong? Sehingga kita tidak mahu mengakui perkara-perkara baik yang dilakukan oleh pihak yang kita tidak sokong?

    Setiap perkara yang baik (untuk semua), samada dilakukan oleh ahli politik BN atau pun ahli politik PR hendaklah kita sokong.

    Setiap perkara yang tidak baik (untuk semua), samada dilakukan oleh ahli politik BN atau pun ahli politik PR hendaklah kita tentang.

    Kita beria-iya menyokong sebelah pihak tapi… kita beli kereta berhutang sembilan tahun. Masuk tahun ke enam, kereta dah mula kena baiki itu dan ini tapi pinjaman kereta belum habis dibayar. Daripada harga kereta yang kita bayar, sebahagian besar masuk ke dalam poket kerajaan dan syarikat kewangan dan kita pula menanggung hutang selama sembilan tahun. Dah la kereta yang kita guna itu pun kualitinya tidaklah seberapa jika dibandingkan dengan kereta buatan luar negara yang harganya tidaklah mahal pun sekiranya segala jenis cukai dan duti tidak dikenakan. Tidak perlukah kita CHANGE perkara ini? Boleh atau tidak kita CHANGE perkara ini?

    Kita beriya-iya menyokong satu pihak tapi… rumah pun kita tak mampu nak beli sekarang ni. Tidak perlukah kita CHANGE perkara ini? Boleh atau tidak kita CHANGE perkara ini?

    Kita beriya-iya menyokong satu pihak tapi… pendidikan tinggi untuk anak-anak kita pun kita tak mampu nak tanggung. Tidak perlukah kita CHANGE perkara ini? Boleh atau tidak kita CHANGE perkara ini?

    Kita beriya-iya menyokong satu pihak tapi… dari dulu sampai sekarang, nak guna pengangkutan awam pun kita tak sanggup sebab tidak cekap, tidak menyeluruh dan tidak murah. Tidak perlukah kita CHANGE perkara ni? Boleh atau tidak kita CHANGE perkara ini?

    Dianggarkan sejumlah RM 1,120,000,000,000.00 (RM 1.12 trillion) wang keluar dari ekonomi negara kita dari tahun 2000 hingga 2009 (ke lima tertinggi di dunia). Berapa banyak cukai yang boleh dipungut oleh kerajaan sekiranya wang ini ‘legal’? Tidak perlukah kita CHANGE perkara ini? Boleh atau tidak kita CHANGE perkara ini?

    Apa perlunya kita beriya-iya menyokong sebelah pihak? Supaya agama kita terjamin? Supaya bangsa kita terjamin? Supaya Institusi Raja kita terjamin? Supaya periuk nasi serta kekayaan kita terjamin? Supaya masa depan anak cucu kita terjamin?

    Bukan mudah untuk Malaysia jatuh muflis. Ini adalah kerana kekayaan minyak yang kita miliki. Secara kasar, keuntungan tahunan Petronas adalah bersamaan dengan 39% daripada bajet tahunan belanjawan kerajaan persekutuan. Ditambah pula, banyak telaga-telaga minyak baru telah dijumpai oleh Petronas. Cuma, sebahagian besar daripada keuntungan ini digunakan sebagai subsidi kepada penjana tenaga bebas (IPP).

    Kesimpulannya, kita perlu CHANGE perkara-perkara di atas tadi (rumah, kereta dan pendidikan) kerana ianya memberikan kesan secara lansung kepada kehidupan kita.


  49. MiddleAges Aug 23,2012 9:48 PM

    Salam Tun,

    I can well understand why i am being censored. It is perhaps too far out.

    I wish to comment on your post, as well as some comments especially the one from USA. Here goes.

    I begin with your last two paragraphs :-

    23. The BN has listened to the people and has changed many laws and policies. All that the people need to do is to urge the BN to carry out whatever change the people desire.

    25. Better the devil you know than the angel you don’t.

    1. Urging the government is certainly not at all a Malaysian culture. If we walk into the homes of many Malaysians, especially Malays, the social and morally right thing to is to obey the government unconditionally and religiously. And of course our ever friendly PDRM is ever willing to assist the government. The government has divine powers.

    Therefore, we as rakyat is in no position to say anything to the government that is worthy of our citizenship, regardless of race. That is why we have to resort to changing the government.

    Malaysians are not as they were before. Today Malaysians are better educated, and can see through old tricks like glass covering manure. RM 500/- isn’t enough to make the glass opaque.

    2. “Better the devil you know than the angel you don’t.”

    If by this statement YB Tun, you mean the devil that treats its own citizen as economic slaves, working like a dog, for the governments own well being, while the working class suffer on a daily basis with traffic jams after paying toll, poor and rude government services, apartheid policies, horribly cruel and corrupt policing, uncaring ministers, and rampant abuse of religion being allowed to flourish…

    Then i say, lets us take a look at the new angel please. What can possibly be worse than what we have now ?

    next the comment by cvco :-

    In the personal words of an old american songwriter, the world immediately becomes a better place when people first change in themselves the things they want to change in other people. How true. If I hate what i see in Malaysia, first change myself. If you hate what you see in Obama/US, first change BN.

    I can identify this as Ghandi’s “Be the change you want to see”.

    From my personal experience living in Malaysia, people do not want to change, the want the government to change and the want to change the government.

    Malaysians, especially the Malays, have been lullabyed by BN for so long, if you so much as suggest fairness, a riot ensues. Religios leaders too play the same game, and is therefore in direct competition with the government.

    At the very least, i am happy our honourable PM clearly see the problem and called for “soul searching”. But it was, out here in the real world, a mere newspaper headline.

    It does not make sense, to anyone, hot in pursuit of the undeniable wealth our nation has and offers, to go on a soul searching trip into the jungles.

    It is all postponed to the “pilgrimage” of each religion, usually when physical illness sets in, or when the alarm bell rings.

    After the pilgrimage, the pursuit continues, never ending. This relentless, souless pusuit is what is killing us slowly.

    Hardly any significant number of Malaysians are even interested in preservation of nature, the stars, social well being. Everyone thinks only of their own wealth, which is normal, but at the expense of others, even the government.

    And there you have it all, to be the government of Malaysians is no easy task, which is why i maintain that BN had done a superb job, but if they practice what they preach, they will find BN is at Stage IV Cancer, the only hope for our progress is to have it removed.

    We can survive this cancer i think, but it is better we prevent recurrence by completely changing to a new government altogether.

    I agree with Tun, it may not be better. But it makes perfect sense.

    Thank You Tun

    Desperate times calls on desperate measures. A desperate plea from a man who stands to lose all from a regime change.

    A change will come eventually Mr Mahathir. You know that things will never last forever. It is inevitable. When a regime change eventuates, people will be prosecuted, assets will be confiscated and people will be incarcerated. The regime change will rewrite a history where once a figurehead will be remembered as a dirty old crook.

    Assalamu’alaikum Tun,

    mohon izin mengulas komen c.h liew…kata nya “hope people can see that ‘politics and religion’ is equivalent to ‘water and oil’…

    ch liew,anda memang hebat.dgn perkataan sependek ini anda mengengahkan propaganda perkauman seluruh bangsa anda dan kaum pendatang,memaparkan kebencian yg jelas terhadap Agama kami.

    ini satu lagi slogan berhelah ala ‘Malaysian Malaysia’ dan ‘Meritokrasi’ yg mensetarafkan Bumiputera kuli-kuli yg dibawa British dan pelarian-ekonomi seperti nenek-moyang anda.

    ch liew,anda dan kaum anda benar-benar orang-orang yg keji lagi terkutuk.apapun kebaikkan kami curah terhadap anda tidak akan dapat mengembalikan kejernihan pemikiran waras anda.

    tidakkah anda tahu bahwa bagi Umat Islam Agama adalah kepentingan paling utama dalam hidup nya? kenapa mesti menyinggung-nyinggung Agama kami?

    tidakkah anda tahu bahwa perasaan menghormati Agama yg begitu menebal dalam hati Umat Islam sebenar nya amat menguntungkan juga bagi agama anda?

    pernah kah terlintas di kepala-otak anda untuk mengira berapa banyak nya kuil-kuil setinggan yg didirikan diatas tanah Kerajaan dan tidak diganggu-gugat hanya semata-mata kerana Orang Melayu dilarang-keras meremehkan agama lain?

    padahal,apa agama yg anda ada? agama bagi anda cuma alat untuk menipu,memenuhkan perut dan mencapai keperluan hidup.jadi apa yg anda tahu tentang agama atau kebaikkan?

    sedang bagi kami orang Melayu dan Umat Islam,Agama adalah Peraturan Hidup yg Mesti di-patuhi sebab Ada yg Memerhati dan Menuntut Pertanggungan-jawap.

    ch liew,anda dan rata-rata kaum anda hanyalah kaum opportunist yg menyangka kami Umat Islam masih lemah dan bodoh.namun saya tegaskan disini tipu-helah anda,baik yg tersembunyi dibalik slogan ‘Malaysian-Malaysia’, ‘Meritokrasi’ atau dasar dalang menghasut Hindraf dan Bersih,ini semua sudah lapuk dan usang.

    rata-rata Orang Melayu dan Umat Islam hari ini sudah tahu betapa bahaya nya anda sekelian yg menjadi ancaman besar terhadap ‘survival’ kami sebagai sebuah Bangsa yg merdeka dan berdaulat.

    dasar perkauman supramacist-china yg dipelopori oleh Lee kuanyew dan Chinpeng kini sudah kami fahami sejelas-jelas nya.

    ch liew,kita sepatut nya bermusuh dan bertempur di Spratly mempertahankan Kedaulatan Negara masing-masing.anda mewakili tentera komunis PLA dan saya sebagai Askar Melayu.

    dgn kebencian yg begini mendalam antara kita,tidak sepatut nya kita hidup sebagai jiran di Negara saya ini.

    terimakasih Tun

    Assalamualikum W.B.T. dan Salam Aidilfitri, maaf zahir dan batin.

    Sebagai peminat blogger Yg Bhg Tun saya berpendapat memang begitu bersesuaian dengan masa dan suasana masa kini isu integriti ketua pembangkang dibangkitkan secara berterusan lebih-lebih lagi menjelang pilihanraya umum ke 13.

    Ketua pembangkang merangkap Ketua Umum Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) iaitu suatu jawatan dalam parti yang diwujud dan terlantik secara tersendiri (secara otomatik mengambil alih tugas Presiden PKR yang disandang oleh isterinya sendiri), juga tidak pernah berlaku di mana-mana parti politik di Malaysia mungkin juga di dunia. Hakikatnya mengapa beliau sendiri tidak memegang jawatan Presiden Parti melalui undian ahli partinya sendiri dan mengikut perlembagaan parti politik yang berdaftar secara rasmi. Meletakkan dirinya sendiri sebagai ketua umum parti dan bertindak sebagai mengetuai parti dengan mengenepikan tugas dan tanggungjawab presiden parti. Tindakan sedemikian memang begitu aneh, menunjukkan seolah-olah presiden parti tiada peranan utama dalam parti. Pada mata umum dan pengundi, PKR ditadbir urus secara terus oleh ketua umum dan timbalan presiden parti dengan dibantu oleh naib presiden parti iaitu yang disandang oleh anak ketua umum parti sendiri. Ini dengan jelas menggambarkan bahawa parti PKR peneraju utamanya oleh keroni-keroni yang dianggotai oleh ahli keluarga terdekat dan sahabat paling karib sebagai timbalan presiden.

    Kredibiliti kepimpinan utama PKR (Ketua Umum, Presiden, Timbalan Presiden dan Naib Presiden) seringkali dan berterusan menjadi pertikaian banyak pihak oleh rakyat umum, NGO-NGO, individu-individu, parti-parti politik selain DAP dan Pas disebabkan banyak fakta diantaranya dari segi moral tidak baik ketua umum dan timbalan presiden yang masih lagi belum jelas kepada rakyat dan masyarakat umum bilamana tiada jawapan yang meyakinkan dari mereka berdua terhadap dakwaan dan bukti perlakuan yang melibatkan moral sebagai seorang pemimpin. Disamping itu mengikut rekod politik kepimpinan PKR amat mudah dan manis menabur berbagai janji semasa berucap dikhalayak ramai, tetapi belum nampak semua janji-janji manis yang ditaburkan secara rasionalnya boleh ditunaikan jika ditakdirkan mereka menang pilihanray umum ke 13 dan mengambil alih Putrajaya. Malah janji-janji yang dibuat semasa pilihanraya umum ke 12 pun masih banyak tidak berupaya ditunaikan oleh Ketua Pembangkang/Ketua Umum PKR. Janji hanya tinggal janji.

    Meyorot kembali sejarah ketua pembangkang semasa dalam kabinet Barisan Nasional terdahulu sebagai Timbalan Perdana Menteri dan merangkap Menteri Kewangan tiada suatu trek rekod menunjukkan bahawa pencapaian beliau dalam melunaskan tanggungjawab boleh dibanggakan oleh rakyat Malaysia sebagai rujukan. Krisis ekonomi/mata wang 1997/1998 gagal ditangani oleh beliau sebagai Timbalan Perdana Menteri dan Menteri Kewangan. Jika sekiranya atas saranan beliau kerajaan Barisan Nasional meminjam wang dari IMF kemungkinan besar Malaysia tidak akan pulih dari masalah itu dan berterusan menanggung hutang yang terus meningkat akibat mainan pihak peminjam wang. Yg Bhg Tun sebagai Perdana Menteri ke 4 pada waktu itu telah menyelamatkan keadaan dan Malaysia telah terselamat dari mala petaka krisis kewangan pada waktu itu. Tiada apa yang boleh kita banggakan terhadap pencapaian Timbalan Perdana Menteri/Menteri Kewangan pada waktu itu (1997/1998).

    Idea Penubuhan Universiti Pengajian Tinggi Universiti Islam Antarabangsa (UIA) Malaysia sebenarnya bukanlah dari idea ketua pembangkang/ketua umum PKR, malah ianya adalah idea Yg Bhg Tun Dr Mahathir Mohammad sebagai Perdana Menteri Malaysia ke 4 (1981-2003). Apa yang diketahui umum bahawa urusan meneruskan pelaksanakan pembangunan UIA telah diserahkan kepada Timbalan Perdana Menteri/Menteri Kewangan pada waktu itu, maka ianya seolah-seolah menunjukkan bahawa idea asal penubuhan UIA adalah oleh TPM/Menteri Kewangan, inilah yang diuwar-uwarkan oleh penyokong-penyokong ketua pembangkang semasa kempen politik mereka. Agak mendukacitakan ada dikalangan remaja/pemuda yang kurang jelas dengan sejarah dan fakta sebenar dengan mudah mempercayai cerita-cerita pembohongan oleh pakatan pembangkang.

    Ketua pembangkang/ketua umum PKR mendapat suatu hadiah yang sangat istimewa dari Allah S.W.T. dimana beliau amat bijak berpidatu (excellent public speaker), tetapi amat malang sekali keistewaan yang diberikan oleh Allah S.W.T. kepada beliau disalahgunakan untuk meraih sokongan politik untuk diri dan partinya secara yang amat tidak jujur dan ikhlas. Diantaranya memutarbelit fakta, membuat janji-janji manis yang tidak mampu dilunaskan secara rasionalnya, menafikan segala kebaikan yang telah dicapai oleh negara Malaysia dan rakyatnya dibawah kepimpinan kerajaan UMNO/Barisan Nasional. Berpolitik membelakangkan etika, dimana beliau telah berusaha sedaya upaya supaya ahli-ahli parlimen Barisan Nasional khususnya bagi negeri Sarawak dan Sabah melompat parti (meninggalkan BN) dan masuk ke Pakatan Rakyat dan mengambil alih kerajaan seperti yang pernah dijanjikan pada 16 September 2008. Usaha sedemikian dipercayai masih berterusan lebih-lebih lagi menjelang pilihanraya umum ke 13.

    Dengan berbagai kerisis kepimpinan (dalaman dan luaran) dalam Pakatan Rakyat (DAP, PKR dan Pas) di negeri-negeri yang dibawah kepimpinan mereka, keyakinan rakyat terhadap Pakatan Rakyat sudah jauh menurun peratus sokongannya. Kerisis Pas dan DAP atas isu negara Islam dan Hukum Hudud nampak jelas tidak ada jalan penyelesaiannya jika kepimpinan Pas berpegang teguh kepada perjuangan Islam tulin, kecuali kepimpinan Pas akhirnya akan tunduk kepada kehendak DAP dan PKR atas kepentingan politik untuk mmenumbangkan UMNO dan Barisan Nasional dalam pilihanraya umum ke 13.

    Pas mestilah konsisten dalam perjuangan partinya yang berimejkan Islam, jika tidak sokongan terhadap Pas akan pasti merosot dan Pas akan hilang identitinya. Untuk merealisasikan perjuangan Islam Pas seharusnya berbaik semula dengan UMNO yang dianggotai majoriti ahlinya yang beragama Islam. Gabungan UMNO dan Pas diyakini Insya, Allah akan membuka suatu era baru perkembangan Islam di Malaysia. Hentikan sikap menyimpan dendam terhadap UMNO yang sering diungkit oleh kepimpinan Pas selama ini. Zaman dan corak kepimpinan parti politik sudah berubah melalui beberapa transformasi yang diterajui oleh kepimpinan kerajaan UMNO/Barisan Nasional. Sikap berdendam amat tidak disukai oleh Allah S.W.T. yang kepimpinan Pas dan pengikutnya amat memahami. Umat Islam di Malaysia dan seluruh dunia seharusnya bersatu bagi menguatkan Islam itu sendiri. Kepimpinan Islam boleh berkongsi kuasa dengan kepimpinan bukan Islam, dengan syarat kepimpinan bukan Islam tidak menentang Islam seperti MCA, MIC dan lain-lain parti dalam Barisan Nasional. Seluruh dunia Islam mengiktiraf Malaysia sebagai sebuah negara Islam, dan menjadi sebuah negara Islam contoh, cuma yang mendukacitakan kepimpinan Pas masih menolak hakikat ini dan mahu menegakkan negara Islam atas acuan mereka sendiri. Majoriti rakyat Malaysia (melebihi 60%) adalah penganut agama Islam, dan peneraju utama kepimpinan negara adalah diterajui oleh seorang Islam dengan berlandaskan syariat Islam. Dengan kata mudah Malaysia sudah boleh dianggap sebuah negara Islam. Kedudukan sedemikian harus dipertahankan, caranya mudah sahaja apabila semua rakyat Islam di Malaysia bersatu padu.

    Sama-samalah kita renungkan demi servival Islam dan bangsa Melayu dan rakyat Malaysia pada keseluruhannya.

    Sekian, terima kasih dan Wassalam

    I have a side comment. As an american I can say that though i have a basic understanding of the main GE13 issues that occupy peoples minds the comparison to Obama is a bit askewed.

    Obama didnt promise the kind of changes people thought they were getting, that being the departure from Bush politics. No. Obama is a hardline communist in his mind and heart and is trying to lead the country into a China-style life. But that only speaks for his personal politics and agenda. The other side of Obama is that he is a created puppet of the powers beyond the bankers, that being the eight families that control all the money and power in the world via IMF and central banks and several prominant Jews occupy the list including Rothschilds.

    Any meetings the candidates or presidents have with Israel is not about religion its about money, control and power. People must get in their heads that religion is not the core here.

    Obamas aims are total control of people and Rothchilds aims are total control of money. The US doesnt cooperate in these aims, the US is controlled by these aims which are largely the work of outside masters and inside agents. The US, as i have known the US for almost 60 years doesnt exist anymore. Its gone and so are the laws and culture. US is running on the fumes of its past. As a result US will follow UK straight down the power and influence ladder and the rest of us will follow the problems straight into world chaos and hard times.

    Though i understand BN doesnt want to give up, I dont believe in my heart Anwar adheres to the above so the comparison to Obama is faulty. Obama never intended to close out of wars and Guantanamo because that doesnt please the masters. The CHANGE he kept talking about was the change to communism (and the suspension of the Constitution which has already occured).

    Please understand we have a similar dilemma in US. Obama is a dirty rat and so is Romney (who will also dutifully follow the masters agendas) because no honest man can be freely elected there. Only pre-selected puppets can. This means that as in Malaysia, if people dont like one side and they dont like the other side either, how does one vote? One cannot say vote for the devil we know because thats an excuse to not stand up and indeed attempt to bring meaningful change.

    Dr. Mahathir, youre an outsider looking at US and you dont like what you see. Im an outsider looking at Malaysia and i dont like what i see. Where does that leave us or more importantly at the moment, the voters? Well, we have to look in a mirror, dont we, to see what others see, then we know the dilemma much better. In the personal words of an old american songwriter, the world immediately becomes a better place when people first change in themselves the things they want to change in other people. How true. If I hate what i see in Malaysia, first change myself. If you hate what you see in Obama/US, first change BN.


  60. CH Liew Aug 23,2012 8:13 AM


    22. The record is there. Malaysians must not allow themselves to be hoodwinked as I was hoodwinked by the appearance of religious piety in the past.

    You are so correct about the above. Many more are playing the same game. Hope many more can see clearly and dont let history repeat itself.

    Hope people can see that “politics and religion” is equivalent to “water and oil”

    Salam Eidul Fitri Tun & isteri,

    Syaitan menjelma dlm pelbagai rupa. Kita bernasib baik ketika itu kerana Tuhan masih menyayangi kita & sipetualang tidak tercapai impiannya.
    Namun tindakan kroninya ketika Tun melepaskan jawatan PM dahulu menghidupkan niat jahatnya. Kita harus berhatihati kerana masih ada di kalangan ahli UMNO yang merupakan anjing penderhaka ini.
    Kalaulah sipetualang ini masih di ‘dalam’, negara akan lebih aman sekarang.
    Memang kerajaan BN semasa masih perlu di perbaiki kerana kerosakan dalaman berpunca dari pimpinan lemah ketika itu.
    Saya berpendapat bahawa kita sesama rakyat Malaysia, terutamanya yang beragama Islam, harus bersatu membangunkan negara ke arah kestabilan, keamanan & kemakmuran.
    Kita tidak perlu meniru konsep demokrasi barat yang tidak membantu rakyat yang lemah atau miskin . Kita harus mencontohi Piagam Madinah sebagai kerangka perlembagan negara berbilang kaum & ugama.
    Negara kita, kita yang menentukan masa depannya.

    Yang hairannya Tun, ramai pulak yang terpedaya dengan janji-janji kosong dia tu. Kebelakangan ini MCA pun sudah turut serta dalam polimik ‘hudud PAS’ sebab nak bersaing pengaruh dengan DAP. Dulu mana pernah MCA, MIC atau Gerakan ini sibuk pasal hudud2 ni.. Ini semua akibat PAS terlalu memainkan sentimen agama untuk kepentingan politik mereka. Realitinya mana pernah PAS ni berminat dengan hukum hudud ni.

    The Spaniards went and CHANGED that. They wanted to get to know the Angel. They did and they fell flat on their nose.

    Next thing we will now will be that Spain too will have to seek shelter under the EMS-Umbrella, meaning getting help from the rest of the EUROPEAN UNION for as long as this UNION is still able to provide such help, for they can’t finance their expenses anymore – not having invested money borrowed before in endeavours that bring a return as you so wisely advocate.

    Malaysians are well advised LISTENING to you when you raise your voice for you advise is sound and solid.

    You have brought out the example of President Obama who did not fulfil all his pre-electioneering promises. These are modern times. I think a better example is Hitler.

    For the Malays, not many countries in the world have a political organisation like the UMNO which brought progress, prosperity and peace to Malaysia in an environment of diverse peoples with their different characteristics, through a communal political party.

    The Malays should be proud, very proud that the BN through UMNO’s leadership through the decades, we, the Malaysians have civility, order and accommodation with one another. We had consensus on issues too though the non-Malay political parties had different dreams and their thoughts were elsewhere when they should be building and safeguarding the superstructure of the BN and for the constituents they represent.

    It is ridiculous for me to note that the MCA was so happy with the permission to build just one school in Kuantan.

    What have they been doing all these over 60 years ? And yet they just could not explain that these are only language schools and not something mysterious to undermine our beloved Nation as led by the UMNO ! And that the loyalty and promise of the Malaysian Chinese are beyond reproach !

    The Malaysian Way of democracy could be the template of many countries with diverse populations including the West which is now facing multiculturalism for the very first time. This is not going to be the end of the story. Akan datang !

    The Malays should feel confident, good and comfortable with the present Governmental structure ( even though they may not like some digits ) which has seen the test of time and crises, not for the benefit of any individual, rich or poor, but for the general working Rakyat.

    And indeed, the deeds of many who contributed to UMNO are not to be forgotten even though these may not be house-hold names.

    The Malays have come a long long way and the mistakes of human beings with power which are now turned into large sums of money cannot be ignored. But these are administrative mistakes carried out by digits in a moment of weakness. These mistakes could be corrected humanely and humanly.

    For human mistakes, do not throw away the only Malay icon in the whole wide world i.e. UMNO !

    Hopefully, you do not end up with the 6 distinguished gentlemen of the Opposition, sleeping in a bed with 3 different dreams !

    It is through the evolution of the historic and unique Malay body politic UMNO that the golden Age of the Malays sic Malaysians will arise from whatever the debacles of the past especially since 2003 – and move on to the next level. This will carry the non-Malays with the momentum. Or else, is it sayonara for Malaysia ?

    We Malaysians cannot progress if we destroy our icons, achievements, developments and milestones just because some very rich fellow wants to be the Prime Minister. There must be an orderly change in the Malaysian democracy, the Malaysian Way.

    Or else, we destroy ourselves for no better reason than the thought we are deficient or inefficient. The fact is we, Malaysians are not like this. Do not be brain-washed !

    The Malaysia as led by the UMNO in the BN through the decades has out-performed Singapore hands down, as led by the awe-some Lee Kuan Yew as follows :-

    1. Malaysian has no blood stained foreign policy arising from the deaths or injuries of innocent men, women and children in friendly countries. Her Prime Ministers (UMNO) have no blood on their hands.
    Vide ASEAN Regional news.

    2. Malaysia never had a 2 child policy imposed upon her Rakyat with the possible contravention of Clause 16 of the United Nations Universal Charter of Human Rights.
    Vide. Channelnewsasia. 2012

    3. Malaysian never lost US$ 108 Billions of her Rakyat’s Trust money in a jiffy on Wall Street in October 2008 by investing in inferior institutions.
    Vide. Channelnewsasia Lee Kuan Yew November 2008. All Singaporean Blogs. 2009 – 2012. Financial Times London 2010. Gillian Tett. ‘Singapore’s Harvard Model’.

    4. Malaysia has always practised humanity and multiculturalism since the Royal Sultans of yore and present, and through successive BN Governments.
    Vide. Channelnewsasia. 2011. The Curry Smell Tribunal.

    5. Malaysia has no perfunctory judiciary system.
    Vide. Admiral Canaris. Hitler’s Judiciary demeaned him by stripping him naked and hung him with piano wires. Related cases.

    6. Malaysia does not claim to be world class concerning the life-style and the wealth of her ruling elite.
    Vide. The Sale of Kim Eng Securities to Maybank.
    The importation of 5,000 pigs daily
    Service contracts from flower nurseries. etc.

    7. Malaysia’s Prime Ministers did not line their pockets either legally or illegally.
    Vide. Channelnewsasia. 2011. All Singaporean Blogs 2009-2012

    All Malaysians especially the Malays should be proud and stand tall on the performance of our beloved Malaysia, the Malays and the non-Malays through the BN years. Do not be brain-washed that we are inefficient or deficient. We are not.

    We are unique in this turbulent world of shifting sands of time.

    This was how Hitler came into full democratic power in 1934. He inveigled himself into power with the pretence of being a democrat. Lies, lies and lies. The Germans believed him and his promises of the good life for the Fatherland and the 1000 year Reich which will come under his leadership. At the end of World War 2, two million Germans died and so did two million Jews without including the losses by the rest of the World. The American military is still stationed in Germany after the War ended in Europe in May 1945.

    When President Obama did not fulfil some of his promises, he was a fully elected President with the backing of the Democratic Party and a few millions of Americans.

    In Malaysia’s case, one distinguished gentleman holds sway with 5 other distingusihed gentlemen nodding their heads in their march to Putrajaya to control a country with a population of 27 millions.

    If Malaysia, the Malaysians, the Malays and the non-Malays have no BN, no UMNO etc., what have we got ? Six distinguished blind-folded gentlemen fiddling around an elephant because there is no ideological difference between them and the BN.

    Vote BN always. All right thinking Malaysians should be responsible to their elders and their posterity.

    1)Yes time for change.
    2)Better to accept angel “per se” and to reject the devil as the word suggests.
    3)The PR will not turn Malaysia into a full blown socialist or communist state.
    4)They will use the fund which have been leaked,abused and wasted to fund those welfare projects.
    5)BN always do things which cost more,would you agree?
    6)Absolute power currupts as you will agree no doubt.Before the 308, you know how arrogant BN had been before the 308.
    7)It has a long list of issues which the BN has ignored.
    8)So ,the check and balance must always be there be it BN or PR in government.
    9)There are also many napoleans still used by the government to prevent the takeover other than BN.
    10)Would you think that leaders like Karpal,LKS,LGE,Tony Pua,Khalid and others of like mind would let him destroy the nation?
    11)Would his own daughter wants that to happen and keep quiet?If she does have it on her conscience.

    The chinese will go for dap. Thats for sure. So they malay will be losing their land soon. N the chinese will have the land for 999 years.
    So why the chinese want to vote for bn?

    This coming election is the defeat of the malay. Thats for sure…. Why? Because the malay very busy with the peliwat. Busy with bersih, busy the lebai which tuhan dier mencarut.

    Assalamualaikum Tun.

    Jika saya menjadi ketua pembangkang,saya takkan guna taktik kotor untuk menuju ke Putrajaya.

    4 negeri sudah dalam tangan.Apa yang perlu tergesa gesa?

    Dan itulah taktik DAP.Make sure Penang kekal.Tetapi bukan matlamat Ex Deputy Prime Minister.

    Ia mudah untuk dibaca.Tetapi apa yang rakyat mahukan sebenarnya?

    Apa kaum cina mahukan dari DAP,apa kaum Melayu mahukan dari PAS,apa kaum India harapkan dari kaum cina?

    Kerana semua kaum ini telah mengenali kaum Melayu,maka Melayulah dikatakan syaitan.Kerana ada kroni dan nepotisme kononnya.

    Lebih baik mengenali syaitan dari mengharapkan yang dikatakan bukan syaitan.

    Sifat Berjanji
    Sifat berjanji ini ialah ciri utama pembangkang. siapa jadi pembangkang ,mesti pandai berjanji. Rakyat dengar janji -janji indah inilah yang menyebabkan depa sokong. Cerita2 kerajaan BN zalim dah tak laku lagi kerana dengan mata sendiri rakyat boleh lihat bagaimana Dato Seri Anwar Ibrahim bersama geng “DAPAS” (DAP dan PAS) boleh bebas bergerak dan bersorak merata2 seluruk pelusuk tanahair . Jadi PRU akan datang perkataaan zalim dah kira lapuk , orang putih kata “obsolete” eh?. Sekarang dah era baru berjudul Janji ” Keadilan bersama Roket dan Bulan”. Silap2 roket meletup kat bumi tak sampai pun bulan. Tapi awas jika roket merah dah sampai bulan hijau, maknanya warna bulan hijau bertukar kepada merah. Jadi bendera Jepun kot?

    PAS ada janji apa2 tak?
    Dalam Alquran ditegaskan kita menyempurnakan janji. Malahan hadith Nabi pun ada menyebut tentang menjaga janji.
    Mungkin Tok Guru Nik Aziz boleh bagi ceramah agama kepada DSAI tentang pentingnya orang Islam menjaga janji. Selepas itu saya cadangkan Jawatankuasa Pusat PAS membuat senarai janji PRU kepada semua muslimin dan muslimat kenapa kena pilih Pakatan Rakyat
    1. menyenaraikan jawatan2 kanan kabinet termasuk Perdana Menteri dan Timbalannya diperuntukkan kepada PAS
    2. Hukum Hudud diterima pakai sebangai perundangan Islam
    3.hak peribumi dipertahankan dan diperhebatkan.

    Selepas itu dapat tandatangan Tok Presiden Pakatan Rakyat untuk mgesahkan janji2 ini,barulah hangpa boleh dpat undi Melayu dengan banyaknya. Hangpa takpayah dapat tandatangan Tok Guru LKS atau Khalifah Lim Guan Eng, mungkin sampai kiamat pun tak dapat keculai bendera dan hati hangpa tukar colour from green to red. Tandatangan Tok Presiden DSAI ,dah cukup power dah tu.

    Tapi awas jangan buat tipu muslihat kerana PAS adalah parti Islam memilih jalan lurus bukan jalan bengkok2 . Kalau nak pilih bengkok2 tukar warna ketayap/serban hang pa .

    Hanya Allah tahu keikhlasan seseorang. Tapi awas kalau tak ihlas!!!Misalnya,tanda2 cakap pusing2.
    1. Negara Islam itu ialah negara kebajikan. PAS tetap perjuang Islam cuma guna istilah saja lain
    2.UMNO tentang hudud. MCA pun tentang hudud. Cakap politik ,atau cakap Islam. Allah sahaja mengetahui hati2 lebai PAS.
    3. UMNO ajar Melayu jadi lemah. Pakatan akan ajar Melayu berdikari. Ye ke??
    4. Hanya UMNO putra sahaja yang dapat kekayaaan.
    5. UMNO punca perepcaham orang Melayu.
    6. Artis2 dan bekas pegawai2 tinggi kerajaan pun sokong PAS.

    PAS kebelakangan ini banyak sangatlah perkataan yang bunyi macam “pusing2” sejak bersama rakan depa dalam Pakatan rakyat. Setengah itu ada yang guna perkataan kesat, ada juga bunyi sopan tapi ada unsur fitnah. Hanya Allah sahja yang tahu. Tak percaya bacalah blog2 penyokong PAS, takkan pula orang DAP yang tulis. PAS masih perjuang Islam lagi ke? Orang Melayu kena bezakan diantara ahli politik PAS dan ulama PAS. Ahli politik PAS banyak cerita politik dan janji2 untuk menang PRU ,untuk tawan PutraJaya . Ulama PAS juga cerita politik tapi depa kalah dunia pun tak apa kerana bagi depa kemenangan akhirat adalah yang hakiki.

    Malangnya ulama PAS tak ramai jadi calun PRU nanti kot kerana kuatir tak dapat sokongan Mat Roket?

    Jadi nak pilih siapa ?
    Walaupun ada masalah dengan beberapa orang UMNO, tetapi secara KESELURUHANNYA adakah UMNO dan Barisan Nasional gagal melaksanakan tanggungjawabnya. Adakah dengan memilih pakatan rakyat, semua masalah berpunca UMNO dan BN dapat diselesaikan oleh Tok Presiden DSAI dan pemimpin DAPAS(DAP dan PAS)?

    Lihat campuran rojak Pakatan. Selangor(YAB PKR). Lihat Perak semasa Dato Nizar(YB PAS),lihat Pulau Pinang (YB DAP). Depa ada demokrasi ke? depa ada dengar suara rakyat ke selepas memerintah sepenggal? Macam cerita wayang saja corak pemerintahan Pakatan Rakyat. Depa nak sepenggal, rakyat dah bagi sepenggal.La ni nak lagi satu penggal,nak lagi negeri lain, lepas itu nak berpenggal2. Nak bagi lagi ke? orang putih kata “enough is enough”, cukupla tu.

    Changing a government is a normal thing which had happened all around the world.

    It had happened in Japan (LDP–NKP—NRP Coalition vs. DPJ–PNP Coalition).

    It had happened in USA (Democratic vs. Republican).

    It had happened in UK (Labour vs. Conservative).

    It had happened in France (Union for a Popular Movement vs. Socialist).

    It had happened in India.

    It had happened in Taiwan (Pan-Blue vs. Pan-Green).

    It had happened in South Korea.,_2004

    It had happened in Australia (ALP vs. L+NP).

    It had happened in New Zealand (National vs. Labour).

    It had happened in Philippines.

    It happened in too many countries which I could not possibly list down all of these countries in this comment.

    But it never happen in CHINA (ruled by Communist Party), NORTH KOREA (ruled by Communist Party), ex-USSR (ruled by Communist Party), MYANMAR (ruled by Junta), SINGAPORE (Ruled by PAP) and MALAYSIA (ruled by BN).

    It is a normal thing that the ruling government will say bad things about the opposition and vice versa. This is normal in politics and it also happened in all the countries above.

    There is a strong relationship between power and wealth. Being in power means controlling the wealth of a nation. The ruling government knows this and so do the opposition.

    My point is… the people of USA, UK, Japan, France, Australia, New Zealand, South Korea, India, Taiwan, Philippines and many other countries are NOT AFRAID TO CHANGE THEIR GOVERNMENT and we Malaysians should not be afraid to change our government.

    PR is definitely not going to become a perfect government and so does BN. Anwar Ibrahim is definitely not an angel and so does Najib Razak.

    Why let one single devil become so strong when there is a good possibility and chance of having two equally strong devils?

    As Salam,

    The issue has been answered by PR in detail. Why you are so reluctant for changed?

    Nothing to be afraid. Please be positive.

    36. This UMNO man knew the core problem why developers registered under Malaysian law do “not” want to support them.

    37. He does not report the true scenario.

    38. Yes, change is inevitable when they blame others for performing well via cost and efficiency in paying off their debts according to financial and property market.

    That’s all YAB.

    Dear Tun,

    Very well said. Indeed what you say is true. People should be able to recognise the real one from the fake one. BN is the real one and PR, the Opposition is the fake one. The promises by the Opposition are too good to be true.
    Vote BN
