26.08.2008 | I dedicate this to my Children.
I would like to place this info on your table, from the Malaysian Insider, as I picked up from the pieces earlier. See Below attachment.
But before that, so allow me to speak.
Tun, Putrajaya akan di kenang as your contribution to the country.
UMNO will be remembered as a party that agreed on the British terms.
I still remember the day when my late father, slammed the door as he entered the house after the Johor Perikatan Assembly, disagreed with the late Dato’Onn Jaafar. He instructed us NOT TO get involve with the politics no more. That was the last time, we watched him iron-up the white uniform, with the “kanji” and asked my late mother to hang them in the cupboard, attached on the medals and badges, and it was there, forever.
His spells, 20 years later, surfaced. Then another 20 years later. Now another 20 years later, which is today. My question is, Where are you Tun.?
My comment in your previous POSTING is clear and I stand by those words. Tun, UMNO is monumental, but, in the bloggosphere, name can be changed to become whoever anyone else, and believe it or not, without realizing these, being a Malay or Indian-Malay, or Chinese-Malay as Malaysian, the locals are still at large not scooping the ideas and factuals, that the force is oncoming from the West, is unstoppable – Malaya had actually failed to refrain the British or any powerful country to use us as their trading platform, squeezing our neck to the last drop of blood, but after all that’s what Malaysia had always wanted. Missing these facts, look at the replies you had always recieved Tun, no one, no one had ever critically cross examine your words, nor challenge the national security issue interest, that may jeopardise the next generation.
You had claimed Tun, that you will leave Malaysia, if ever that man wins P44. So, Will you?
Should we?join you and develop another Malaysia village out side Malaysia, maybe in Kalimantan?
Finally, before that | my stand is clear, that is, ONE man, who had destroyed the dream and sacrifices of many many thousands of Baby Boomers Malays Executive in their livelihood and familyhood, who had participated in the development of this nation with bare hands and less sophisticated tools with the instructions of the brothers in the cabinet between year 1980-2000, without hesitation to listen and adhere to the rules, but this ONE man, had destroyed the future of our children, because of that ONE man stands during his term as the Finance Minister in 1997, is the one that had won the kampong heart in P44 today, and he was, taken into the cabinet by UMNO who sheer denied the late Tun GBaba. Still, we hear no remorse, still we hear no apology. Still we hear other people who have no principles, still supporting that ONE man. TUN, Now, those Baby Boomers had suffered. Not all, but some were really stucked, and they keep the DENDAM. This story Tun, this political journey will never end. Next is not the P44, but, another generation that was developed by the Baby Boomer will appear. The generation who had seen their father in good life and happiness as new Malay Executive generation, and the children who had witnessed the change of the social status of their father, who had shared to sleep on the teak wood bed to the newspaper covered floor, THIS children will grow up and remember this Tun. That ONE man forgets this. Many other Malaysian had forgotten this. Tun, many Malaysian may not agree with this statement, but let me inform, Anwar and his followers struggles is not-relevant at all. Globally, and Malaysia itself, this Baby Boomers phenomenon is waving the thinking, to outsmart any polity that champion the nation currently. As much as Anwar had campaigned overseas, we had also followed him and you Tun, from the back, we track back, we had gone out of the country and had campaigned as well, not to the top leaders, but, to the younger generation of volunteers that involve in thousands of volunteer group throughout the world, whom later they may be become leaders in their own countries and to be able to help-leading our children of the Baby Boomer in Malaysia, who will grow into that just in time, to run the nation, soon. This is what will happen to Malaysia Tun. I promise you.
Regrets, to have seen the’Malaysia had became to this level of thinking, but, just because of ONE man, I refuse to mintak maaf jika saya sinis, but to any PKR followers, I tell straight talk here, you have that ONE man, who will destroy the rest of Malaysia, he had done the mistake, he repeated that at overseas, and he will repeat that again. I throw the ball to your hand now, catch it..
Even if I die Tun, my book is already on printing now overseas, my children, and thousands other children, will continue my struggles. Qada dan Qadar is not in the hands of God no more, its in the head of the God within..the Makrifatullah..
Good luck to Malaysia. Forget about Merdeka.
Anyway | Below, this is the feed from the Malaysian Insider. See how people write about their own country, or, does it written by a False Flag?

Scooped from the Malaysian Insider
Permatang Pauh: Winners and losers
AUG 26 Every election produces winners and losers. Here is The Malaysian Insider’s take on who emerged from Permatang Pauh with credit and who should hit the soul-searching button.
– Anwar Ibrahim The Barisan Nasional threw the kitchen sink and everything in it at him but by next sitting he will take his place in Parliament. This all but completes his rehabilitation from a political has-been 10 years ago to possibly the next prime minister of Malaysia. He now faces the near impossible task of persuading at least 30 BN MPs to cross over to Pakatan Rakyat and forcing the collapse of the Barisan Nasional by Sept 16. But for today at least he can savour the taste of victory. And yes, the debate on who should be the prime minister-in-waiting is over.
– Pakatan Rakyat For the past two months, there have been serious questions over the future of this alliance. Some Pas leaders seemed keen on joining forces with Umno, concerned that Malay rights and the position of Islam were being diluted in Pakatan Rakyat. DAP and Pas also disagreed publicly on who should be the prime-minister-in-waiting and squabbled over the spoils of Election 2008. Guess what? All the differences were forgotten as members of PKR, DAP and Pas descended on Permatang Pauh. They outwitted and outfought the formidable BN machinery.
– Datuk Nik Aziz Nik Mat When others wavered, the Pas spiritual leader stood firmly beside Anwar, campaigning tirelessly and defending the Opposition icon against the sodomy charge. By far, he was the single most powerful antidote against Saiful Bukhari Azlan swearing on the Quran that he had been sodomised by Anwar. He has emerged with reputation and image among PKR supporters burnished.
– Umno The charade is over. This is a party without spirit. This is a party without a leader. Ministers, deputy ministers and other senior party officials all campaigned in Permatang Pauh but it was more out of duty than anything else. There was no fire in their bellies. Some could not care less how Datuk Arif Shah Omar Shah performed in the polls. They showed up in the constituency to canvass for support in the upcoming divisional elections in October. One former menteri besar, eyeing a top position in the party, holed up in a hotel and dished out cash to streams of divisional officials. This is a party made of politicians who are consumed with their own interest and completely detached from reality. This could be the beginning of the end of this once powerful party.
– The Barisan Nasional machinery There was a time when the Opposition used to shudder at the prospect of facing the formidable machinery, the women who used to campaign tirelessly from dusk to dawn, the men who braved the elements to tear down Opposition posters and ferry voters to the polling station. Not anymore. Dispirited, they just did the bare minimum in Permatang Pauh. In fact, it was the Pakatan Rakyat machinery which caught the eye. Their workers displayed the spirit of volunteerism which was once patented by the BN. How the mighty have fallen.
– Abdullah Ahmad Badawi He was not in charge of the BN by-election team but the president of Umno and the chairman of the BN will not be able to absolve himself of blame for this dismal showing. The unvarnished fact is that he has not been able to inspire his party or the ruling coalition since March 8. If his party workers are listless, it is because they do not see him as a general capable of galvanising the troops in the face of an enemy’s onslaught. If his coalition partners are feeble, it is because they do not see him as a leader capable of reviving the BN. In all likelihood, there will be calls for him to speed up the transfer of power.
– Najib Razak Without a doubt, the deputy prime minister is hurting. The uninterrupted stream of attacks on his character, his wife and allegations that he was involved with the murdered Mongolian model Altantuya Shariibuu have damaged him in the eyes of the public. His words once used to carry weight but now they ring hollow. His decision to swear in a mosque that he was not involved with Altantuya did not find popular support. Still, he remains best placed to take over from Abdullah. But he will need much repair to his image before he can claim to have the support of Malaysians.
– Saiful Bukhari Azlan He claimed it was a coincidence but his decision to swear on the Quran on the eve of nomination day that he was sodomised by Anwar does not look very clever now. A snap poll of 544 Malay voters by the Merdeka Centre painted him as a pawn in a political game. He should stay out of the limelight till the trial begins.
2. Affirmative action is about correcting imbalances between groups. But in the process, the interest of individuals would have to be sacrificed. It is unfortunate for the individual concerned but if no one’s interest is to be sacrificed then corrections cannot be made. The status quo would remain and this would mean there would be no affirmative action. Simply said, no corrective action would be possible unless there is some discrimination against someone.
3. Golf is a great game. But like other games the poorer players would be given handicaps. Otherwise golf would be very boring as the good golfers win every time.
4. In boxing we cannot match a heavyweight against a lightweight. The latter would be hammered to a pulp.
5. In horse racing the lighter horse would carry weights so that the race is between evenly matched horses and riders.
6. Globalisation has been promoted by the rich countries.
7. The essence of globalisation is open borders or a borderless world. With this, the rich and the well-endowed will have unrestricted access to the countries of the poor in order to exploit them. Of course the poor can have access to the rich countries too. It sounds fair. The playing field seems to be level.
8. But what will certainly happen is that the rich will go into the poor countries and with their capital, their managerial skills, and their technology, would overwhelm the people in the poor countries with their small businesses, limited skills and limited capital.
9. The end result would be that the poor countries would effectively be owned and exploited by the rich countries and the local people would be mere workers in the big enterprises of the rich, earning a pittance for themselves. Essentially colonisation of the poor by the rich would again take place.
10. But the rich countries will claim that the people of the poor countries are free to do business in the rich countries, buy over the banks, the industries and anything they like. But they know and we know that it would be impossible for the people of the poor countries to do this.
11. This is why the WTO has been rejected by poor countries. The people of the poor countries know they cannot compete; know that in the end they would be colonised. They are not being selfish. It is simply that they want to exploit their wealth for themselves.
12. Effectively the poor countries want to discriminate in their favour by rejecting the borderless world of Globalisation. Exploitation by the rich would most likely enrich the poor countries. But they would rather be poor than be exploited.
13. We take the relative peace and stability in our country for granted. But look at other multi-ethnic countries. In most cases the indigenous people, if given power would not just discriminate against what they consider to be non-indigenous people but would want to expel them. Look around us and you will understand what I mean. Look at the Tamils of Sri Lanka, and the Indians in Burma. There are other examples which I will not mention here.
14. But the indigenous people of this country actually welcome the non-indigenous and expressed their willingness to share the wealth and the opportunities that this great country has to offer between them. But the sharing must be fair. That was the kind of sharing our founders agreed upon. The Malays would not have agreed if in this country they would be reduced to being the hewers of wood and drawers of water.
15. When the sharing did not really take place, the anger lead to the 1969 race riots.
16. Following that our wise leaders from all the communities agreed on how to carry out the sharing. They agreed on what is basically affirmative action. They agreed that they would eradicate poverty irrespective of race and that there should be no identification of race with economic function.
17. It is only a small sacrifice. But the peace and stability that came with the NEP had enriched the country which in turn had contributed towards peace and stability even during the recession caused by the financial crises. We know that racial riots occurred in other countries at that time. Contributing to the fairness of the NEP was the decision that discrimination should not be by expropriation of what already belonged to others but through the distribution of new wealth and opportunities. Thus, the sense of deprivation would be reduced.
18. But even when the discrimination is to be based on growth the rich would still feel a sense of deprivation because they cannot get all the wealth and opportunities that they believe they were qualified for.
19. If contracts or licences or permits are to be given out why should someone less qualified get them when they, the qualified could make better use of these things.
20. In the case of university admission and scholarships, why should someone less qualified get admitted when the better qualified cannot.
21. So even when the corrective action is based on new opportunities and wealth and not by expropriation of what is already in the possession of the rich, there would still be a sense of deprivation by the richer communities.
22. Accepted that the richer communities also have poor members among them and the New Economic Policy’s first prong clearly proposed poverty eradication irrespective of race, the fact remains that there is more poverty among the poorer community than among the richer communities.
23. If we eliminate poverty among the rich without regard to the level of poverty, then the richer community would be rid of poverty while the poorer community would still be saddled with extensive poverty.
24. Today we have reduced poverty to 5 percent. If we care to do a study, we will find that the majority of those still under the poverty line would be from the deprived community.
25. Still, despite the alleged discrimination, our poverty eradication is regarded as being very successful. It is nearly impossible to find hard core poverty among the better-off race in the urban areas. There are more in the rural areas.
26. Fifty years is a short period in the history of nations. We have not reached menopause yet. In fact we are in our youth still. Whether we succeed to overcome our present difficulties depends on us. If we fail, pointing fingers will not save us.
27. I will readily admit that the NEP had been abused. But we are so ready to blame that we pick on the wrong target. Of course the way the affirmative action was carried out, and the abuses, were picked on by the opposition to condemn the whole policy.
28. UMNOputra, like cronyism, was a word invented by politicians and the detractors of this brash country which dared to thumb its nose at the powers that be. Unable to condemn blatant corruption as they do to other countries, they came up with cronyism and UMNOputra. When there is real cronyism and corruption they deliberately ignore them because these are committed by their favourite people.
29. Before making these criticisms against the affirmative action of the NEP, why not make a real study. Are most of the Malays getting the scholarships and entries into the universities the children of UMNO people? If they are, why was it necessary to have the Universities and University College Act to stop students from demonstrations against the UMNO-led Government? How did the doctors and lawyers in PAS get their education? Are the students all from rich families with connections?
30. I will be the first to admit that there have been abuses in the promotion of business among the bumiputeras. Given opportunities, given licenses, permits, contracts etc, they disposed these for immediate gains. This frustrates the efforts to help them. Some degree of abuses may be excused but the degree of abuse of the opportunities created by the NEP is far too much. They cannot all be excused.
31. I also admit that there has been unfairness in the award of scholarships and Government jobs.
32. I will not try to defend these abuses. We must try to reduce them. But affirmation is about discrimination. And those discriminated against will never understand the big picture, the benefits of an increasingly egalitarian society.
33. The Malays must accept that this discrimination cannot be forever. If they fail to respond properly to what is being done for them, they should accept this policy would be taken away.
34. When Malay youngsters, especially boys, failed to study and qualify for university education, when they preferred to play and not study, we cannot expect the non-Malays to patiently wait and give up their opportunities until the Malays decide to become serious and study. That would not be fair.
35. That was why we introduced merit in the selection of students for the universities. Unfortunately, the implementers of Government decisions chose to interpret it differently. By requiring Bumiputeras to sit for the matriculation and the non-Bumiputeras to sit for higher school certificates, they managed to give the impression that the Bumiputeras were actually better qualified than the non-Bumiputeras. With this, the intention of the Government to make the Bumiputeras become more serious about their education failed.
36. There is a tendency among Malays to regard the discrimination in their favour as a privilege, as a recognition of their superior status. I think this is wrong. The discrimination is in order to give them a kind of headstart so that they can catch up with other races. To me, it is shameful to have to be protected because we do not have the capacity to compete. We are not Red Indians to live on reserves. We should regard it as a temporary expedient to be done away with once we have achieved the capacity to compete on our own.
37. However, we must give time for ending the NEP and it should be done in stages. I hope that the time will not be too long. In the meantime, serious efforts by the Bumiputeras must be made to avail themselves of the opportunities. If this is obviously not being done, then, as with entrance into the universities, the discrimination must end.
