Phony Call To Arms And Hot Air Dominate Umno General Assembly Hullabaloo.

As can be expected from this particular gathering of the privileged ones, who jealously guard and won't share the booty with their own kind let alone others, the inevitable battle cry to preserve their golden goose was raised to slightly less than feverish pitch by a wannabe Umno jutawan. Of course he spoke in the only way he knows which was taught to him at his sekolah pondok in historic Melaka, hometown of Hang Tuah, the very last of the real warriors of our Tanah Air. With a little help and tuition from his ex-ketua cawangan, he now knows how to throw in ingredients of race and religion to form a palatable mixture suited to the taste buds of impoverished Malay simpletons in the kampungs who exist miserably, while the Umnoputras live it up in the cities building palaces, counting their ill-gotten wealth in their fashionable counting houses and having more than one mistress at a time. And some of these philanderers actually preach religion to others!

The present bunch of fake pahlawan sitting in air-con offices and driving at least a Proton Perdana or a Pajero, easily fatigued by too much nasi minyak and cholesterol overload, can only talk the talk and hope against hope that at least a few of those infidels get the shivers. None of these hotshots and potential ones talking through their noses at PWTC have probably done a hard day's work or sweated enough to know what toil and labour is, let alone a war. After all who goes to war? Only those who have nothing to lose, feel seriously betrayed and have lost hope of ever gaining anything. This bunch of freeloaders are traveling first class on the Super Gravy Express! Do you think that they want to simply fritter all that away engaging in a civil war? They (the Umnoputras) have the most to lose if there should ever be any racial strife. It is therefore in their interest to see that peace reigns supreme or else kiss goodbye to all those billions from the 9MP.

But 'nuff said. Let the bullshit merchant be heard:
Umno and the Malays can no longer be passive and defensive towards groups who question the special privileges of the Malays, Islam as the official religion and the Syariah Court's position as enshrined in the Federal Constitution.

Melaka Umno delegate Hasnoor Sidang Hussein (The kampung nutcase I was referring to earlier) said the time had come for Umno members as well as the Malays to firmly act against those who undermined the social contract which had been agreed upon since independence.

"The tolerant attitude of the Malays towards groups who dared to challenge the rights of the Malays and Islam's sanctity prompted the latter to be even bolder as they felt no action would be taken against them," he said when debating the President's keynote address at the Umno General Assembly at the Putra World Trade Centre here Thursday.

He said the Malays had been passive far too long and tolerated against attempts by certain non-Muslim groups to dispute the rights of the Malays and tarnish Islam's image. "Since the tragic racial riots in 1969, Umno and the Malays have been too patient, and tolerant.

"Examples of their blatant disregard for Malays' sensitivity were when cases which should be heard in the Syariah courts were instead brought before the civil courts, and worse, they even proposed the setting up of a religious advisory council and putting Islam on par with other religions in the nation's constitution, he said.

Hasnoor thanked Prime Minister Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi for his firm action by rejecting the proposed council and issuing a stern warning against anyone who attempted to incite religious and racial sentiments.

He also ticked off some professional Malay groups who collaborated with these groups in the name of social justice and liberalisation and urged them to repent.

As such, he said, Umno members should stand solidly behind the party president and other Umno leaders as Umno was the only party which continued to fight for the rights of the Malays and Islam since the party's inception.

They are too overly confident that the security apparatus i.e. police and military, will either assist them in another May 13 or turn a blind eye to their actions. The fact that the two above mentioned security apparatus, one of which happens to be under Shylock Tun Razak's portfolio, are predominantly Malay may have been the cause of their bold and rash statements.

The Non-Malays must point out to the Malays and other Bumis that the UMNOPUTERAs, despite having 30 years to properly implement NEP, have yet failed to produce a large number of Malays and other Bumis whom are equal to their Non-Bumi counterparts. Except for the 36.64% equity that is all currently being held by the UMNOPUTERAs, of course. Furthermore, the Malays especially, must be reminded that the Indians are in a far worst position. The Malays must ask this fundamental question:-

Are the failures of the Malays due to the duplicitious words and deeds of their erstwhile champions at PWTC or is it due to a all-encompassing conspiracies among the Non-Malays and foreigners?

Ingat. Bukannya MCA, MIC, ataupun DAP yang membuat keputusan bagaimana DEB sepatutnya dilaksanakan, apatah lagi memastikan bahawa segala inisiatif DEB dapat memupuk bangsa Melayu yang berkemampuan untuk bersaing dengan bangsa lain. Siapa lagi yang bertanggungjawab? UMNOPUTERA! Period.

As I have stated earlier, the Non-Malay Non-Muslim Bumis are being played out as sops by these UMNOPUTERAs. They hide behind the banner of Masters of The Land, while pillaging every government largesse or engaging in Ali Babas. A few scholarships here and there coupled with a few hundred ringgit in an ASB account does not make you competitive. You (the Non-Malay Non-Muslim Bumis) know it, but you do not aknowledge it as you fear that the current alternative expounded by the Non-Malays may be worst; and you are right in this respect.

I, speaking for myself, respect the rights of the original inhabitants of Malaysia i.e. Orang Asli, both West and East M'sia. This is especially in terms of forest management, protection of the biological eco-system, and the cessation of expropration of existing forest land by the State or Federal Governments. The Orang Asli must be given the power to act against loggers, poachers, or Bedroom Jihad Practitioners. They must be given the option to choose either to join the mainstream M'sian community OR continue with their existing way of life with all the rights enshrined. There must be NO COMPULSION (note the irony), unlike what the Penans had to undergo during the Bakun Dam relocation. Do not let the Penans be the first of many casualties of Ali Baba partnerships with the UMNOPUTERAs.

If Non-Malays wish to play out this card right, they must disavow any pride or respect for corporate plunderers such as Tiong Hiew Kiing or Ting Pek Khing. They must rid themselves of xenophobia regarding the Orang Asli and cease being chauvinistic i.e. sense of superiority in terms of language or culture. Tune in to Discovery Channel show titled Tribes; good for you, good for me.

For further reading on this specific issue, I seriously recommend the following book to all Non-Malays:-

Resources, Nations and Indigenous Peoples:
Case Studies from Australasia, Melanesia and Southeast Asia
Resources, Nations and Indigenous Peoples

Edited by Richard Howitt with John Connell and Philip Hirsch

Oxford University Press (Mamak Khairy is not involved with this book, trust me)

Of course, I can only state my case and hope that for an acceptance; or at the very least a tacit aknowledgement. However, before you choose to disagree, I only ask that you reconsider what I have stated and the implications therein. And if you still feel my assertions are a load of poppycock and Mamak Oxfart, then so be it. As for me, Carpe Diem.

Thanks to The Malaysian for allowing me to hijack his Blog Comment Page once again. I think I owe you lunch, and a parting word...

"Give me your hands, if we be friends,
And Robin shall restore amends."

First the Nude Lady in Police Station Squat Case, yet Nothing happen. of course the embolden police officer advanced themselves to the enterprise of taking on gunslinginf assignment....what next?

Come on, when the Brilliant Malaysians like Jimmy Choo, Michelle Yeoh and Zang Toi are bring all the good vibes to the world, with the upbeat and modern and progressive Malaysian(I am afraid to say only Minorities)they represent. We have morons and sixteen centurians like those in UMNO General Assembly and now some self proclaimed brokers of power corridors to the Highest Offices of the Land, all of them brought us nothing but shame. One day Malaysia may be equated to the like of current day Israel and apartheid era South Africa....and would be mentioned in the international arena as a basket case of missed opportunities or the condemned perpetriaters of ethnic crimes the world purged in the Balkan areas 10 years ago.

The strange case of the murdered Mongolian model
By Justin Huggler, Asia Correspondent
Published: 16 November 2006
For weeks, Malaysia has been gripped by the strange case of the missing Mongolian model. At first it was a routine disappearance of a foreigner. Then remains were found in the jungle: fragments of human skull that had allegedly been blown apart.

According to reports the police refuse to confirm, they were the remains of Altantuya Shaariibuu, and forensics tests showed that she was first shot in the head, then her body blown to pieces with C4 explosives.

One of the best-known political analysts in the country has been detained for questioning in connection with the case. Three police officers have also been detained, and yesterday two of them were charged with her murder. The case of the missing model has become a major scandal.

Suddenly everyone in Malaysia wants to know the story of the 28-year-old from a far-off exotic land, and how she came to die a brutal death so far from home. But the police have publicly refused to confirm anything, and instead the Malaysian press has tried to piece together the story from leaks and inside sources.

The last place anybody saw Ms Shaariibuu alive was outside the house of Abdul Razak Baginda, the political analyst, on 19 October. Witnesses saw her being bundled into a car and driven away by two men and a policewoman in uniform, according to local reports.

One of the three police officers who have been detained is a woman; another is a chief inspector. They have not been named.

Most of the reporting has focussed on Mr Abdul Razak, 46, a member of the World Economic Forum and the London-based Institute for Strategic Studies, who is also studying for a doctorate at Oxford.

Malaysian newspapers have reported that Mr Abdul Razak met the model in Hong Kong two years ago and the two had a relationship. There were claims he made lavish gifts to her, including putting $30,000 (£16,000) in her bank account, but the relationship broke down. Ms Shaariibuu followed Mr Abdul Razak to Malaysia, where she hired a private investigator to track him down.

Her family have confirmed that she had a 16-month-old son, but have refused to say who the father is. There have been reports that the model wanted to win Mr Abdul Razak back, or blackmail him for $500,000. But the Mongolian consul, speaking for the family, has said the real reason for her visit was to ask for money for an operation for her son. Mr Abdul Razak, who is married and has a 19-year-old daughter, reportedly tried to avoid Ms Shaariibuu.

There has been some criticism in Malaysia that the press has focused on Mr Abdul Razak, who has not been charged in connection with case but only held for questioning, and not on the police officers who have now been charged with murder.

"While the sordid details and the reasons and motives will probably only surface if the case ever goes to court, there are a list of unanswered questions," Malaysia's The Sun newspaper wrote in an editorial. "The most important question of course is: why should a posse of police officers abduct an unknown foreign national in daylight and in public?" Other questions remain, not least why the model's killers should go to the trouble of blowing her body apart with explosives.

At a press conference this week, Ms Shaariibuu's father said the family refused to believe she was dead until the results of DNA tests on the bone fragments. "I do not want anything from the authorities except a straightforward and transparent investigation," he said.

Applying the Malay logic to the failed implementation of NEP after 30 years of wasted effort.....just drop the policy with Talak Tiga, takes only 30 seconds by SMS as proposed by some brilliant UMCO delegates some years ago. No self respecting UMNO members would wait for 30 years to divorce his barren first wife or on whatever flimsy reasons for her failure to satisfy his lusts....so why should NEP deserve a special treatment . Makes most sense for UMNO applying the same logic of the UMNO grass roots, lack of mental capacity being the most common denominator across the party.

Now there is even a case that to show them that to murder anyone to satisfy your lust may bring you rather quickly into the hangman's noose....So please dont talk about shedding your blood if you can be shedding yours too. It is false bravado and HotAir getting a strenous workout in the Assembly...as far as I can see.

Yes, you are right. If UMNOputra want to shed blood, then come to shed together. See who is the bigger loser.
Majority of the non-Malays are not filthy rich like the boses of the Genting, YTL, Berjaya or MAxis etc... who got rich through special connection with these UMNOputras. Another May 13 is no big deal.
