Seekor kucing cuba gali kubur tuannya...


Kita sering dianjurkan untuk berbuat baik kepada semua makhluk Allah, termasuk haiwan.

Ganjaran bagi mereka yang mengasihi haiwan bukan sahaja di akhirat, malah di dunia.

Seorang pengguna Facebook, Soffuan CZ memuat naik beberapa keping gambar dan video yang diambil pada upacara pengebumian datuknya di sebuah masjid di Langkawi.

Namun apa yang menarik perhatian adalah seekor kucing yang dilihat cuba menggali kubur arwah datuknya yang dipanggil Tok Wan itu.


Tidak dapat dipastikan jika kucing berkenaan adalah peliharaan datuknya, namun dalam status yang dimuat naik, Soffuan menceritakan arwah seorang yang sangat menyayangi kucing semasa hayatnya.

Dalam video itu, dapat dilihat dengan jelas kucing berkenaan berusaha untuk menggali tanah pusara yang baru sahaja dikambus, biarpun dihalang.

Malah setelah cuba dibawa jauh dari kawasan kubur, kucing putih itu tetap tidak mahu berganjak. - astroawani

Tuan Ibrahim dan PAS kena 
jawab 8 soalan Dr.M...

Kerana geram dengan kritikan dan sindiran Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man yang menyuruhnya mencerminkan diri, Dr Mahathir Mohamad telah mengemukakan lapan soalan "cepumas" untuk dijawab oleh timbalan presiden Pas itu. Lapan soalan itu ialah;

1. Apakah Tuan Ibrahim percaya bahawa sesiapa yang tidak menyertai PAS tidak Islam?
2. Apakah orang Melayu kafir sebelum adanya PAS?
3. Apakah ibu bapa orang PAS kafir kerana dilahir sebelum adanya PAS?
4. Apakah PAS tidak kafir apabila bekerjasama politik dengan DAP?
5. Mengikut PAS, Umno kafir. Jika PAS bekerjasama dengan Umno apakah PAS menjadi kafir?
6. Amanat Hadi dakwa pemerintah Malaysia kafir dan melawan dengannya adalah jihad, dan kematian dalam perlawanan ini menjadikan si mati syahid. Apakah Tuan Ibrahim terima dakwaan dalam amanat Hadi?
7. Jika pemerintahan yang didirikan oleh Umno dahulu kafir, apakah pegawai-pegawainya, termasuk mufti dan orang-orang yang dipimpin dan dinasihat oleh mereka kafir?
8. Apakah Tuan Ibrahim percaya 14 pengikut Ibrahim Libya mati syahid dah empat orang polis mati sebagai orang kafir yang bekerja dengan kerajaan kafir?

Soalan itu diajukan Dr Mahathir dalam blognya yang sudah dipetik oleh banyak portal berita.

Untuk menjawab kelapan-lapan persoalan dibangkitkan Dr Mahathir ini ia bukan sahaja menjadi tanggungjawab Tuan Ibrahim tetapi keseluruhan pemimpin Pas terutamanya mereka yang menerima dakwaan berkenaan khususnya yang menjadikan Amanah Abdul Hadi Awang sebagai fatwa politik yang meninggalkan kesan buruk sehingga boleh merosakkan akidah ummah Islam negara ini.

Majlis Syura Ulama (MSU) merupakan dewan tertinggi parti agama itu sepatutnya mengadakan ijmak mereka untuk merumuskan jawaban kepada soalan Dr Mahathir itu. Kita percaya jawaban Tuan Ibrahim nanti bukan sahaja menjelaskan persoalan Dr Mahathir, tetapi ia juga ditunggu-tunggu oleh orang lain yan juga keliru dengan dakwaan dan persoalan seperti dibangkitkan itu.

Tidak dinafikan disebabkan ada yang menerima dakwaan berkenaan telah berlaku "takfir" (kafir mengkafir) sesama Islam di negara ini, kalau dahulu di kalangan ahli Pas dengan Umno sahaja tetapi kini ahli Pas dengan ahli Parti Amanah Negara (Amanah). Ahli Pas kini semakin rancak mengkafirkan rakannya yang telah menyertai Amanah.

Kejadian pulau memulau oleh ahli Pas di kampung-kampung terhadap ahli Amanah berlaku sekarang ini seperti mana suatu masa dahulu ahli Pas memulau ahli Umno dalam beberapa aktiviti kehidupan, majlis kenduri, solat dan sebagainya.

Tuan Ibrahim tidak perlu bertamsil ibarat dalam menjawab persoalan Dr Mahathir yang mungkin dianggap jahil oleh orang Pas itu. Beliau seharusnya menyertai dalil-dalil dan nas yang kemas. Dan sekiranya persoalan didakwa Dr Mahathir itu tidak benar, Tuan Ibrahim dan Pas perlu menjelaskan dan memohon maaf ke atas keterlanjuran sesetengah ahlinya beranggapan benar apa yang dibangkitkan oleh Dr Mahathir itu.

Kegagalan Tuan Ibrahim dan Pas menjawab dan menjelaskan persoalan dibangkitkan bekas PM itu ia boleh menjejaskan wibawa parti agama itu. Baca seterusnya...

Najib’s farce of an RCI is over,
so is his reputation...

The farce is over. The most amateurish inquiry in the history of Malaysia, held with the sole purpose of scoring political points, is done.

The royal commission of inquiry into Bank Negara Malaysia’s forex losses nearly 30 years ago finally wrapped up its proceedings today, having questioned 25 witnesses and studied 42 documents on the losses.

May we never see the likes of this sham again. It was chaired by someone who should be remembered with only disdain.

Mohd Sidek Hassan ended his civil service career as chief secretary to the government and went on to become Petronas chairman, but his conduct did not display any of that.

He made conclusions early on, refused to retract his remarks and questioned the witnesses in an adversarial manner, to the consternation and chagrin of all present.

Was this an inquiry or a full trial, one wonders.


Image result for Najib n forex RCI

Dr Mahathir Mohamad put it succinctly when he thought out loud what the RCI’s purpose was: not a probe into the forex losses, but to make him look bad.

“It is about finding a way to make me look bad in the eyes of the public. That during my time, money was also stolen,” he had told reporters in Putrajaya.

It was an inquiry so lacking in documentary evidence, it was shocking. It was just based on what people said, and there was no interest in recalling them when there were contradicting testimonies.

From day one, this RCI appeared to be a probe to connect the dots and nail Dr Mahathir, Daim Zainuddin or others who have become enemies of Prime Minister Najib Razak.

Hearsay and so-called evidence with crater-sized holes have been accorded inordinate importance. Conclusions were made publicly early on, and not retracted.

No wonder, then, that right-thinking Malaysians stopped following the RCI. The stench of the farce was too strong to bear. It was not so much an inquiry, but a barely disguised inquisition and prosecution to taint critics.

It did not quite work out that way, though. It just added to the shameful sham piling up in Putrajaya.- themalaysianinsight

Did RCI close shop early 
so Najib need not testify...

Lim Kit Siang is wondering if the Royal Commission of Inquiry (RCI) into Bank Negara's foreign exchange (forex) losses concluded its proceedings earlier than scheduled to avoid the need for Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak to appear as a witness.

Testifying before the RCI yesterday, former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad claimed Najib was one of the ministers in a 1993 cabinet meeting who rejected Lim’s proposal to set up an RCI into the losses then.

Lim asked if the RCI decided to wrap up its proceedings in order to prevent Najib from explaining his decision to oppose the call in the past.

The DAP veteran, who was opposition leader in 1993, had asked then finance minister Anwar Ibrahim to refer to the cabinet to set up an RCI on the forex losses.

Speaking to reporters yesterday, Mahathir said Najib should appear before the RCI to explain why he was calling for the RCI now and did not do so years ago.

“Why was former prime minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi who said in August he knew the truth about Bank Negara's forex losses not called before the RCI?” asked Lim.

Meanwhile, Lim expressed concern over the way former top civil servants were treated with “utter disregard” and even “cruelly treated with utter contempt” for their physical condition and health.

“I think it is the height of disrespect and cruelty that (former auditor-general) Ishak Tadin had to be physically dragged to the RCI and his second child Rizal Ishak had to appear before the RCI to plead that his father was unable to testify as he had developed a condition in 2007 that affected his memory and that this cognitive impairment caused his father 'trouble recalling past events',” he said.

Lim also cited other examples of “utter lack of compassion and respect for old public servants” such as the case of former deputy secretary of the finance department in the Finance Ministry Othman Jusoh.

Othman and panel member Kamaludin Md Said got into a heated exchange after the latter prodded him about a decision in relation to the sale of government-owned shares.

“I found some of the exchanges between Sidek and other commissioners on the one hand and witnesses like Mahathir and former finance minister Daim Zainuddin on the other most shocking and quite unbelievable, especially when they were asked questions as to how Mahathir or Daim did not know about the colossal forex losses when 'everyone seemed to know'.

“Sidek seems to have forgotten that he is himself a case in point […] He seems not to know that the 1MBD scandal has turned Malaysia into a global kleptocracy, which is known by everyone in Malaysia and informed opinion in the world except government politicians and public servants like him,” he added.

Sidek, he said, had also left many loose ends in declaring the RCI hearings closed ahead of schedule as Anwar was expected to be recalled among others.

“How can Sidek expect the Malaysian public and world opinion to have full respect for the report of the RCI when its chairperson had preconceived ideas about the RCI findings and conclusions without taking into account the evidence at the RCI?” he asked. - mk

Najib’s magic wand fails to impress...

Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak waved his magic wand and the media – as well as the foreign diplomatic corps in Kuala Lumpur – saw their hopes for an early election in the country dashed. 

The disappointment of the diplomatic corps could be read in the expressions of the foreign dignitaries in Malaysia after Malaysian PM Najib Razak’s major announcement fell on deaf ears.

If not for the rile that it has attracted on social-media, the announcement that a former Umno chief minister of Selangor had crawled back to the party after joining the Islamists PAS, had little impact. 

Selangor Menteri Besar Azmin Ali apparently stated that Umno was “collecting old newspaper” by bringing back the state’s former Menteri Besar (Chief Minister) Muhammad Muhammad Taib to the party’s fold.

Taib seems to be part of Najib’s pro[Malay agenda saying he felt the opposition PKR – which he joined after leaving the PAS – since it was a “loss” for him to be part of the Opposition, especially when the Malay agenda is not prioritised. 

“From the (Opposition) meetings I have attended, there is no discussion on the Malay agenda. There was no other way than to rejoin Umno,” he said. 

Taib was a former Umno VP and was embroiled in a money scandal in Australia when he was caught with millions in cash upon his arrival in Aussie land.

Nevertheless, Anwar Ibrahim, the PKR leader would surely be in a bad mood following Taib’s criticism of the party and of its ‘Malay’ agenda. 

However, Mahathir Mohamad former PM who is now a stalwart among the opposition leaders said the Pakatan Harapan (Coalition of Hope) will respect and push Malay rights but not at the expense of other races. 

The loss of Taib will have very little impact for the opposition.- theindependent

Kenapa kafirkan orang yang tak sokong PAS...

Photo published for Are Malays who reject PAS considered ‘kafir’, Mahathir asks
Kafirkah Saya...

1.Saya berasa sedih membaca rencana jawapan oleh Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man terhadap ulasan saya berkenaan Parti PAS. Saya hormati Tuan Ibrahim sebagai satu-satunya pemimpin PAS yang rasional. Tetapi jawapannya tidak sedikit pun menyentuh perkara utama yang dibangkitkan dalam rencana saya. 

2.Sesungguhnya saya tidak marah jika saya dipanggil penyangak, penyamun, diktator dan sebagainya. Saya tidak harap musuh politik saya memanggil saya dengan nama baik. Jika mereka membuat demikian tentulah sukar bagi mereka menentang saya.

3.Tetapi yang saya sedih dan marah ialah apabila PAS mengkafirkan saya dan semua orang Melayu yang tidak sokong PAS. Perbuatan ini dilarang oleh agama Islam. Dan mereka yang dikafir marah dan kecewa didakwa mereka tidak Islam.

4.Tuan Ibrahim tidak menyentuh perkara ini sama sekali. Sebaliknya Tuan Ibrahim hanya melempar berbagai kata kesat kepada saya. Ini bermakna Tuan Ibrahim bersetuju dengan dakwaan PAS bahawa saya dan lain-lain orang Melayu yang tidak menyertai PAS adalah kafir. Yang tidak menyertai PAS ini ramai. Raja-raja kita pun tidak menyertai PAS. Sudah tentu orang Islam yang seramai 1.7 bilion diseluruh dunia, mengikut dakwaan PAS adalah kafir.

5.Pengkafiran inilah yang memecahbelah orang Melayu Islam yang semua percaya dan mengikut amalan agama Islam yang sama dan mengucap dua kalimah syahadah dan berada dalam mazhab Ahlul Sunnah Wal Jamaah, berimam kepada Imam Shafei.

6.Yang saya katakan ialah sebelum adanya PAS tidak ada perpecahan disebabkan kelainan agama di kalangan orang Melayu Islam. Hanya apabila PAS ditubuh dan mengkafirkan orang yang tidak menyertai parti politik PAS, barulah orang Melayu Islam berpecah sehingga tidak terima nikah ibu bapa, bersembahyang dua imam, berkuburan berasingan dan bermusuh ketat antara orang PAS dengan orang bukan PAS.

7.Kenyataan saya ini tidak boleh dipertikai oleh sesiapa. Bolehkah Tuan Ibrahim nafi perpecahan ini berlaku, dan ianya berlaku kerana PAS menidakkan Islamnya orang UMNO dan juga orang lain yang tidak menyertai PAS.

8.Saya berada di zaman sebelum PAS ditubuh. Ada kaum muda dan kaum tua. Tetapi tidak ada perpecahan antara orang Melayu kerana agama. Sudah tentu tidak ada sembahyang dua imam, perkuburan berasingan dan lain-lain. 

9.Soal mengkafir ini hanya berlaku apabila PAS ditubuh dan PAS kafirkan orang UMNO terutamanya kerana UMNO bekerjasama politik dengan orang bukan Islam.


10.Kemudian PAS bekerjasama dengan DAP. Tetapi PAS dakwa ini tidak menjadikan PAS kafir. Kerjasama PAS diberi nama “tahaluf siyasi” perkataan Arab yang bermakna “kerjasama politik”. Hanya dengan mengguna Bahasa Arab tidak menjadikan perbuatan PAS itu Islam.

11.Oleh kerana Tuan Ibrahim tidak sentuh soal mengkafir orang yang bukan ahli PAS, dibawah ini saya kemukakan soalan-soalan berkenaan perkara ini supaya Yang Berbahagia Tuan Ibrahim dapat faham kandungan utama rencana saya.

a) Apakah Tuan Ibrahim percaya bahawa sesiapa yang tidak menyertai PAS tidak Islam.
b) Apakah orang Melayu kafir sebelum adanya PAS.
c) Apakah ibubapa orang PAS kafir kerana dilahir sebelum adanya PAS.
d) Apakah PAS tidak kafir apabila bekerjasama politik dengan DAP.
e) Mengikut PAS, UMNO kafir. Jika PAS bekerjasama dengan UMNO apakah PAS menjadi kafir.
f) Amanat Hadi dakwa pemerintahan Malaysia kafir dan melawan dengannya adalah jihad dan kematian dalam perlawanan ini menjadikan si mati syahid. Apakah Tuan Ibrahim terima dakwaan dalam amanat Hadi?
g) Jika pemerintahan yang didirikan oleh UMNO dahulu kafir, apakah pegawai-pegawainya, termasuk mufti dan orang-orang yang dipimpin dan dinasihat oleh mereka kafir.
h) Apakah Tuan Ibrahim percaya 14 pengikut Ibrahim Libya mati syahid dah 4 orang polis mati sebagai orang kafir yang bekerja dengan Kerajaan kafir?

12.Soal saya dalam rencana ini jelas. Memaki saya, iaitu saya ini perompak dan penyamun, mencerita berkenaan kezaliman saya dan bermacam lagi tidak sedikitpun menimbul kemarahan saya. Memanglah musuh saya tidak akan puji saya. Membuat tuduhan yang tidak berasas memang cara musuh untuk menang dalam pilihanraya.

13.Tetapi mengkafirkan saya tidak boleh saya terima. Ia dilarang oleh Islam, dilarang dalam Al-Quran. Ia berdosa dan orang yang mengkafirkan orang Islam, akan dapati dakwaan mereka akan kembali kepada mereka. Ini yang dijanji dalam Al-Quran.

14.Tidak perlu dakwa saya tidak berbahasa Arab. Tidak perlu kata saya bukan orang agama, tidak berijazah dalam agama Islam.

15.Tetapi soalnya apakah orang yang terpelajar dalam agama Islam seperti Tuan Ibrahim, orang yang mendakwa diri mereka ulama, apakah mereka terima dakwaan PAS bahawa orang yang tidak menyertai PAS menjadi kafir. Jika mereka terima maka bukan sahaja orang UMNO, dan sekarang ini orang Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia, yang kafir, mufti-mufti Kerajaan dan Raja-raja Melayu turut jadi kafir. Jika tidak PAS, Tuan Ibrahim sendiri boleh buat kenyataan bahawa dalam dunia ini hanya mereka yang menyertai PAS sahaja yang beragama Islam. Apabila seseorang memasuki agama Islam, maka ia mesti sebut keahlian dalam PAS sebelum ia diterima memeluk agama Islam.

16.Tak usah lari dari soal pengkafiran ini. Jelaskan dengan tegas benar atau tidak orang yang tidak menyertai PAS kafir. - chedet


Are Malays who reject PAS considered ‘kafir’

PKR Closer To Teaming Up With PAS/UMNO...

The Washington DC stunt has totally backfired on their faces. Plus it was not even an official visit. No guard of honor, they had to pay for the entire visit and there was not even a proper White House photo shot. 

There is talk that the Media Team inside the MO1's outfit has been facing some serious internal bickering lately. The Sup Kambing Kuala Kangsar fellow who is in charge of feeding (literally) the prepaid bloggers has not been giving them any instructions for about a month. Gone quiet. 

Yesterday's 'Special Announcement at 4:45 PM" fiasco was possibly more internal sabotage from inside MO1's organisation. There must be a serious mole undermining MO1's every move. Looking at so many negative comments in the Media,  it is obvious the "Special Announcement"  fiasco has backfired on MO1.

Anyway, despite the fiasco,  there is more to Dato Seri Panglima Petik Mempelam rising from the dead than meets the eye.  

I recall in 2013 when Mat Taib joined PAS the talk was to not criticise Mat Taib as he was "Umno's man inside PAS".   So none of the prepaids criticised Mat Taib.

A lot of shit has been flushed down their throats since then. And true enough, since Mat Taib joined PAS,  Hadi has been "acquired" as an UMNO lackey.  Mat Taib's "I cannot speak English" method has been very successful in making Hadi  appreciate Tuanku Abdul Rahman. 

The Mat Taib joined PKR in September 2015. Now Mat Taib has jumped to UMNO. The talk is Mat Taib has been preparing the way for PKR to either team up or join UMNO.



Here is something from the Malaysian Insight:

IT was meant to be more than just Mat Taib re-joining Umno y'day. 
He was supposed to bring along 8 state govt lawmakers 
and cause the collapse of Azmin Ali administration.

intervention of powerful stakeholders in Selangor

end result : Najib only had Mat Taib to show at 5pm 
much-hyped press conference in Kuala Lumpur.

Sources told Malaysian Insight nego for Mat Taib defection and 8 others 

handled by intermediaries and not Najib himself.

Najib informed it was a go but only Mat was there source told Malaysian Insight


deal fizzled out because it was blocked at highest levels 

when found out Mat was part of deal source told Malaysian Insight.

led to flat announcement y'day that Mat re-joining Umno

presence of entire Supreme Council 
sparked rumours of state govt change 

Mat's defection would be 8 PKR assemblymen, 12 Umno, 13 PAS 

together with Khalid Ibrahim to form 34 lawmakers 
enough to form state govt in 56-seat legislature.

So that is why the MO1 called CNN, Al Jazeera, TV 3/4 and all.  He thought the Selangor State government would fall.

So this is what Mat Taib has been doing over the past two years inside PKR.  He has been busy negotiating.  Using the same extremely  effective method "I cannot speak English".

I believe negotiations are still going on to win over PKR bigwigs over to  PAS and UMNO.

The crossing over of Mat Taib from PKR to UMNO is proof enough.  Who knows, if those 8 other PKR assemblymen had also decided to cross over yesterday, they may have declared today another public holiday.

And lets not forget those 8 PKR assemblymen who were supposed to cross over along with Mat Taib are still there. What went wrong? Tak cukup dedak?

Soneone was saying that nothing happens inside PKR without the knowledge of the Crown Prince of Bamboo River.  For example, it is quite impossible that the Crown Prince did not know about Mat Taib's defection.

Is it all then part of a bigger plan that has already been hatched?

Ultimately an UMNO - PAS - PKR alliance?

Folks, it is not over till the fat lady sinks. - ostb

Who played Najib out in 
Trump's oval office visit...

Well, the real question who got played out during that infamous visit of Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak to the White House?

The opposition in Malaysia is having a great time bashing the Prime Minister for falling on to a Public Relations firms that organised the trip.

Now those in the media industry will tell you that such a trip must have been a fully paid one, but paid by who?

Rumours are the Donald Trump administration did not pay for the trip, but it was paid by the Malaysian government.

Hence, the USA did not put any real efforts in bringing Najib, accused of so many wrong doings, to the White House.


Image may contain: 2 people, meme and text

If we agree on that, then we have to come to terms with the fact that the USA did not lose anything during this visit.

Except that it got bashed by some serious journalism in Washington for allowing what they called a ‘tainted’ political leader to visit the Oval Office. 

The Sarawak Report said in no uncertain terms that Najib’s visit was a desperate PR gambit by Najib to con voters back home.

Opposition portals swear the Najib visit lasted 30 minutes, during which the Malaysian PM made wild promises to Trump and offered to buy a number of aircraft and spend some RM60 million on military equipment.

Trump had a big grin and Najib was forcing his smile out, says netizens, over the successful trip for Trump who lost nothing but gained the unlimited support of a ‘tainted’ PM.



Ah, the only thing Trump lost in the op is that he courted disapproval from a number of journos and a number of people.

Newsweek, for example, had a headline that read: Trump meeting with Malaysian Crook Najib Reeks of Swamp.

But the other question to ask is why did Najib have to go to the US and meet President Trump to tell the world that the ailing Malaysian Airlines is suddenly jumping from a short haul strategy to a long haul strategy in one year?

That is the mystery that many will have to ponder upon until next time! – theindependent

Cubaan coup d'etat di Selangor yang tak ikut skrip...

Mat Tyson patah balik untuk ulangi episod Perak...

Ia sepatutnya lebih daripada sekadar Muhammad Muhammad Taib masuk Umno semula semalam. Beliau sepatutnya membawa bersamanya lapan ahli dewan undangan negeri (Adun) dan menyebabkan pentadbiran Mohamed Azmin Ali tumbang.

Namun kerana ada campur tangan daripada pihak berkepentingan yang berkuasa di Selangor, akhirnya, Presiden Umno Najib Razak hanya ada Muhammad seorang untuk muncul pada sidang media yang digembar-geburkan pada pukul 5 petang di Kuala Lumpur.

Sumber memberitahu The Malaysian Insight rundingan untuk membawa Muhammad, 72, pulang ke pangkuan Umno dan menarik masuk lapan yang yang lain itu diuruskan oleh orang tengah dan bukannya perdana menteri sendiri.

"Najib dimaklumkan semuanya lancar tetapi apabila beliau tiba, hanya Mat Tyson ada di situ," kata seorang sumber parti kepada The Malaysian Insight, dengan menggunakan nama gelaran popular bekas Menteri Besar Selangor itu.

"Rundingan terbantut kerana ia tersekat di peringkat tertinggi apabila didapati Mat Tyson termasuk dalam rundingan itu," kata seorang sumber lain kepada The Malaysian Insight.

Perkembangan itu membawa kepada pengumuman yang pendek dan hambar semalam Muhammad kembali ke pangkuan Umno, biarpun kehadiran hampir semua anggota Majlis Tertinggi Umno hadir sama mencetuskan desas-desus serta spekulasi peralihan sebuah kerajaan negeri atau rombakan dalam parti menjelang pilihan raya umum yang harus diadakan sebelum Ogos 2018.



Difahamkan percaturan politik penyertaan semula Muhammad ke dalam Umno melibatkan 8 Adun PKR bergabung bersama 12 Adun Umno dan 13 Adun PAS serta bekas Menteri Besar Selangor Khalid Ibrahim untuk membentuk barisan 34 Adun yang sudah cukup untuk membentuk sebuah kerajaan di Selangor. DUN Selangor mempunyai 56 kerusi.

Kenapa lapan Adun PKR itu mahu meninggalkan parti mereka tidak didedahkan, kata sumber Umno yang mengetahui percaturan tersebut.

Pemerhati politik berkata langkah membawa Muhammad dan lapan Adun mengulangi episod yang berlaku di Perak pada 2009 ketika mana tiga Adun Pakatan Rakyat (PR) melompat keluar daripada kerajaan yang memerintah dan menyokong Barisan Nasional di DUN Perak yang mempunyai 59 kerusi.

Ia menyebabkan kerajaan PR yang mempunyai 28 wakil rakyat tumbang. Sultan Perak kemudian mempelawa BN yang mempunyai 28 Adun untuk membentuk kerajaan negeri setelah ia mempunyai majoriti tipis susulan tindakan tiga Adun yang lompat parti itu.

Pemerhati juga berkata langkah Muhammad semalam membayangkan hasrat Najib dan Umno untuk mengguna pakai jalan yang sama seperti di Perak untuk mengalahkan seteru politiknya di Selangor.

Andai kata semalam BN berjaya rampas Selangor, dalam keadaan negeri itu kini rezab simpanannya sudah lebih RM3 bilion, seronoknya perompak dan penyamun dapat dana pilihanraya. 

Muhammad empat penggal menjadi wakil rakyat Batang Kali (1982-1999) dan Menteri Besar Selangor antara 1986 hingga 1997 apabila beliau letak jawatan berhubung kes mata wang di Australia.

Beliau keluar Umno untuk menyertai PAS pada 2013, empat tahun selepas tidak tersenarai dalam Kabinet Najib pada 2009. Beliau meninggalkan PAS selepas dua tahun dan menyertai PKR pada 2015.

Muhammad berbalah dengan Istana Selangor apabila berkahwin secara sulit dengan adinda kepada Sultan sekarang pada 1987 di Thailand. Beliau dan puteri Selangor itu, Tengku Puteri Zahariah Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah, kini sudah bercerai.

Dalam satu wawancara dengan Utusan Malaysia dua tahun lalu, Sultan Selangor, Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah menyentuh tentang beberapa menteri besar negeri itu tetapi membuat kenyataan yang keras tentang Muhammad.

"Yang banyak tukar adat ini ialah Muhammad Muhammad Taib. Macam penganugerahan darjah kebesaran tidak lagi melalui Dewan Diraja, tetapi Exco sahaja luluskan terus, bagi darjah kebesaran.

"Terus terang, saya tidak hormat pada Muhammad Taib. Dia buat kekayaan ketika berada dalam Umno, kemudian masuk PAS. Kemudian apabila PAS kelam kabut, dia keluar dan masuk PKR. Kalau dia masuk mana sekalipun, macam mana hendak hormat sebab dia banyak melompat.

"Kalau orang tidak ada prinsip jadi pemimpin, memang goyanglah. Kita mesti teguh. Kalau kepercayaan kita betul, periksa dan ulang periksa dan jangan berganjak bila sudah buat keputusan," titah baginda. – malaysianinsight.


Najib's announcement–coup attempt 
that did not follow the script?

Just before taking over the leadership reins, Prime Minister Najib Abdul Razak had orchestrated a coup that saw the collapse of the opposition-led Perak government in 2009.

Amanah Youth believes something similar was supposed to have unravelled yesterday evening, when Najib had the entire nation glued for his much-hyped announcement.

Umno leaders were summoned to the party headquarters, which even saw Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi cutting his trip to Perlis short and returning to Kuala Lumpur.

However, Najib drew flak and ridicule when the announcement centred around the return of former Selangor menteri besar Muhammad Muhammad Taib to Umno.

Detractors claimed that a spent political powerhouse such as Muhammad did not deserve such high-level drama.

Amanah Youth vice-chief Shazni Munir Mohd Ithnin begged to differ.

“To believe that the Umno president (Najib) held a press conference just to celebrate the return of Muhammad is naive,” he said.

Shazni added that Amanah Youth believes what transpired yesterday was the postponement of a coup, similar to the one that occurred in Perak, after three opposition assemblypersons quit their parties to become pro-BN independent representatives.



“The more important question is what was the reason for the postponement and who are the characters working towards bringing a group of elected representatives to be with Najib.

“To those who are working hard to bring support for Najib, Amanah Youth is confident that the coup attempt would not get the blessings of the people,” he added in a statement.

Shazni cautioned against attempts to derail the people's mandate in the 2013 general election and to avoid actions that could bring peril to the future of the nation.

According to The Malaysian Insight, Muhammad was supposed to bring along eight Selangor state government assemblypersons with him to trigger the collapse of the current state government. However, this failed to materialise.

PKR lawmaker and the party's strategy director Sim Tze Sin dismissed this claim.

“Why would eight ADUN (the Malay acronym for state assemblypersons) join a sinking Umno ship?

“Cerita dongeng (fairy tale) just to cover Najib's humiliating PC (press conference) last night,” Sim said on Facebook.- mk

2 tahun sekali dia lompat,2019 nanti masuk MIC kot...
"Goa bou ji"...sulat kabar lama...

Tindakan Tan Sri Muhammad Muhd Taib kembali ke pangkuan Umno langsung tidak merugikan pembangkang, kata setiausaha politik menteri besar Selangor.

Ini kerana, kata Mat Suhaimi Shafie, Muhammad tidak memberi sebarang sumbangan besar kepada parti ketika beliau bersama PKR.

“Saya tidak mendabik dada, namun kehilangannya tidak diratapi, malah adapun tidak menambah, pergipun tidak terasa. Saya hanya ucap selamat kepadanya,” katanya ketika dihubungi FMT.

Beliau mengulas sidang media tergempar yang diadakan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak petang tadi untuk mengumumkan penyertaan Muhammad dalam Umno semula.

“Saya buat keputusan ini setelah 5 tahun kerana melihat keadaan di sebelah sana. Saya rasa perjuangan saya sia-sia sahaja,” kata Muhammad yang juga bekas naib presiden Umno.



Muhammad bersama Umno dan BN sejak 1964, sebelum menyertai PAS pada April 2013 dan melompat ke PKR pada September 2015. 

Beliau pernah dilantik sebagai menteri besar Selangor serta menteri kemajuan luar bandar dan wilayah.

Mengulas lanjut, Suhaimi simpati dengan Najib yang terpengaruh dengan Muhammad sehingga mengadakan sidang media tergempar semata-mata untuk mengumumkan penyertaan bekas naib presiden Umno itu.



“Saya sangat simpati, apapun kemampuannya (Muhammad) kembali kepada Umno dengan mengaburi mata Najib dan pimpinan Umno sesuatu yang perlu diiktiraf,” katanya sambil menambah kemasukan Muhammad ke Umno tidak membimbangkan kerajaan negeri Selangor pimpinan Pakatan Harapan dan PAS.

Beliau berkata, perkembangan terbaru itu juga menggambarkan betapa terdesaknya Umno mahu menawan Selangor pada pilihan raya umum akan datang.

“Surat khabar lama pun ada kalanya bila sesak dan terdesak, bernilai juga kan?

“Boleh jual pukal,” sindirnya. - fmt

Mat Taib 3 kali janda diraikan macam gadis jelita...


Anti-climax extraordinaire..this no-spekking politician, who embarassed Malaysians with the millions of ringgits in his suitcase in Australia is long past his sell-by date.

Shows Najib's desperation.

Also,his deputy may not be too happy, that there is another who no spekking de inglis...

Is this news is this why you summoned all your UMNO big wigs to KL for this announcement. 

This Mat Temberang Tyson, excels at leap-frogging.

He quit UMNO to join Pas, then quit Pas to join PKR, now he returns to UMNO.


Image may contain: 1 person, text

He rejoin UMNO-after schooling on morality by PAS and basic written & spoken  English by PKR- he is now a future national leader

He is now an ulamak, a reformist and is now filled with experience to be the next PM.

No wonder UMNO sent its President, its Deputy President, its Vice Presidents, its Secretary, its Treasurer, its Information Chief, and the entire Supreme Council.

Were they welcoming their new President if the President? 

Well done Najib,gather them up now, so we can see who can and cannot be trusted better you invite them now, then us having to deal with the leap frogging and causing chaos after GE. - f/bk

Sultan Reveals What He Thinks Of S'gor
MBs,Says He Has No Respect For Mat Taib...

In a frank interview granted on the occasion of his 70th birthday earlier this month, DYMM Sultan of Selangor Sultan Sharafuddin Idris Shah spoke in length and offered insight on how he really regards his state's highest elected official.

In the two-hour interview with Utusan Malaysia, the Sultan of Selangor spoke passionately about the need for political polemics to stop and for the Malays in his state to unite for the sake of Islam.

However, he reserved his most frank comments for the elected officials who he has to deal with, in particular the string of Selangor MBs that have served in office during his reign so far.

Sultan Sharafuddin's comments about his current and former MBs, the newly-minted Datuk Seri Azmin Ali and Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim, showed he accorded each individual with a measure of respect.



“From what I’ve seen, Khalid had its his own way, but he is not a political master, while Azmin understands politics. We shall see who is better at bringing development and progress to this state.”

He also used the analogy of another ex-MB, Dr Mohamad Khir Toyo, who is now serving jail time about how the great power and authority that the Selangor MB post entails can seduce and bring about a person's downfall if he does not have strong principles.

However, he did not mince his words when he flatly stated that he had no respect for ex-Selangor MB Tan Sri Muhammad Muhammad Taib, more popularly referred to as 'Mat Taib'.

“Muhammad changed many customs, such as the granting of royal honors; so the process bypassed the Royal Council and went straight through the State Exco.



“He amassed wealth when he was in Umno and then he joined PAS. Then just as things were turning south for PAS, he left it to join PKR. Whichever party he joins, it is hard to have respect for him for his tendency to jump ship.

"If someone with no principles assumes the helm, everything is bound to fall apart. We must hold on to our principles. If our faith is in the right place, we can weather every test, analyse each problem that arises properly and do not falter after we have made a decision."

His Royal Highness' displeasure could also be due to more than just Mat Taib's conduct in office as the ex-MB had eloped with the Sultan's sister Tengku Puteri Zaharia Sultan Abdul Aziz Shah to Thailand in 1987 where they married. Taib and Tengku Zaharia later divorced but he was then embroiled in a currency scandal, was charged in Australia but later acquitted. - mD

THE MORE NAJIB THREATENS THE CHINESE, THE MORE THEY DISRESPECT HIM: VOTE FOR ME OR I WILL ‘KERIS’ YOU TACTICS DON’T WORK – CHIN  TONG SLAMS NAJIB, MCA
Vote for me or I will 'keris' you tactics 
dont work now...

No leader should ever threaten the people to gain votes; by singling out the Chinese community, Prime Minister Najib Razak and MCA leaders were just making more people angry at Barisan Nasional, DAP’s Liew Chin Tong said.

The Kluang MP said Najib had “marred” the Hari Malaysia celebration yesterday with a speech that contained “elements of threatening Chinese Malaysian voters in the lead up to the coming general election”.

Najib is reported to have said that “the Chinese community would be targeted should Malaysia ever descend into chaos…If there is no peace in our country, what will happen? The Chinese will be the first to be targeted if there is no peace in this country.”

The BN chairman was speaking at the MCA-organised Malaysian Chinese Patriotic Rally at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) yesterday.

“Najib’s remarks will only anger most Malaysians as no one likes to be threatened with violence, veiled or otherwise.

“This is yet another reason for us to reject Najib, MCA and BN in the coming general election,” Liew, who is DAP political education director, said today at a Pakatan Harapan coffee shop forum and community cycling event in Johor Baru this morning.

At the PWTC, Najib urged the Chinese in Malaysia not to waste time on the opposition, saying the BN government needed strong Chinese backing. He reminded the Chinese business community that the government had helped them in their businesses.

Najib pledged to build more Chinese primary schools in return.

Liew reminded Najib that BN lost the trust of ethnic Chinese and Indian voters when former Umno Youth chief Hishammuddin Hussein was seen brandishing the keris at every Umno general assembly from 2005 to 2007.

“The waving of the keris was perceived as a not-very-subtle threat of violence against those who did not agree with Umno,” he said.

Liew also slammed MCA, saying he would not be surprised if it was the Chinese-based BN component party that had advised Najib to make the remarks.

“At the moment, MCA is obsessed with its ‘30% strategy’ to win 30% of ethnic Chinese votes by threatening violence and advocating spoiled votes.

“In the 2013 general election, the then Pakatan Rakyat received 85% of ethnic Chinese votes across the board on the peninsula.

“What MCA is hoping for is that by exploiting some problems within Pakatan and fear among Chinese voters, it could double the seats it won by winning 30% Chinese support while keeping the same level of ethnic Malay votes,” he said.

Liew said it would be “foolish” of MCA to assume that Malay voters were safely with Umno, when it was now “visible and clear that many Malays are prepared to jump from Najib’s sinking ship”.

“It is also wishful thinking by Najib and MCA to assume that Malay voters would not feel angry at the waste and plundering of Malaysia’s resources by Najib, his family and associates.  

“Malaysians must teach Najib and MCA a hard lesson so that they learn to respect voters and democracy regardless of ethnic background.” - themalaysianinsight

Sekolah tahfiz Ittifaqiyah sengaja dibakar

Photo published for CCTV footage shows intrusion into school before fire started

Mereka dipercayai tinggal di kawasan berhampiran.

Ketua Polis Kuala Lumpur Datuk Amar Singh Ishar Singh berkata tiga pelajar tahfiz itu diambil keterangannya bagi membantu siasatan.

Katanya semua tujuh suspek berusia antara 11 hingga 18 tahun itu ada yang masih bersekolah dan ada yang tidak bersekolah.

"Polis juga merampas baju, seluar dan motosikal yang dimiliki suspek," katanya dalam sidang media di Ibu Pejabat Polis Kontinjen Kuala Lumpur malam ini.

Dengan tangkapan itu juga katanya polis percaya kes berkenaan sudah diselesaikan.

Beliau juga menyatakan polis juga mendapatkan maklumat daripada rakaman kamera litar tertutup (CCTV) dari kawasan berhampiran termasuk pejabat Persatuan Pengguna Islam Malaysia (PPIM). 

Hanya kerana ejek-mengejek tujuh remaja tergamak memulakan kebakaran di bangunan asrama Pusat Tahfiz Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah di Kampung Dato Keramat, Kuala Lumpur yang mengorbankan lebih 20 orang kelmarin.

Terdahulu media melaporkan rakaman CCTV menunjukkan terdapat kelibat dua lelaki menaiki motosikal membeli minyak petrol jam 1.30 pagi, beberapa jam sebelum kebakaran pusat tahfiz berkenaan.

Kata Amar Singh, polis mendapati dua tong gas yang ditemui di luar pintu asrama berkenaan dibawa dari tingkat bawah.

Difahamkan suspek dipercayai sengaja mengunci pintu bilik asrama sebelum meletakkan tilam sebagai penghadang, sebelum menghalakan muncung tong gas ke arah pintu bilik asrama pelajar dan guru terbabit.

Mereka kemudian menyalakan api dengan bantuan minyak petrol. 

Dalam kejadian awal pagi 14 September itu 21 pelajar dan dua guru tahfiz meninggal dunia dan sejumlah yang lain cedera apabila sebahagian daripada bangunan Darul Quran Ittifaqiyah terbakar.

Pada awalnya pihak berkuasa menjangkakan insiden itu berpunca daripada litar pintas namun siasatan lanjut mendapati wujud unsur khianat di sebaliknya.

Ia adalah kejadian kedua terburuk membabitkan pusat pengajian Islam di negara ini selepas kebakaran bangunan asrama perempuan Madrasah Taufiqiah Al-Khairiah dijilat api di Padang Lumat, Yan di Kedah pada Pada 22 September 1989.

Insiden malang itu mengorbankan nyawa 27 pelajar. - mk

Mocking prompted tahfiz fire 'mischief',police says

Trump Granted Najib A “P****h Visit Status” 
Despite $20 Billion Investment Bribes

Trump has proven that the United States of America can be bought – if the price is right. And that’s incredibly shameful considering the U.S. has been foaming at the mouth fighting for democratic values and human rights, while at the same time against corruption and money laundering as contained in its Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative.

By inviting the world’s biggest crook Najib Razak to the White House, the moronic Donald Trump has practically sent a message to the world that it’s perfectly alright to steal and launder dirty money, even using U.S. financial system, as long as the U.S. gets its cut. And the U.S. has the cheek to lecture China and Russia about human rights and laugh at the communist countries’ corruption.

But who can blame U.S. President Trump for being soft on Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak. After all, Trump was a businessman who treasures financial gains on top of anything else. Given the right price, he might even sell his own wife Melania Trump. Mr. Najib is no ordinary corrupt world leader. He was also an extraordinary apple polisher, the type of people Trump likes very much.

After spending millions of dollars lobbying (or rather bribing) Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law who happens to be a senior White House adviser, Mr. Najib deliberately picked Trump International Hotel for his stay. Costing at least US$700 a night (before discount), the room rate could skyrocket to over US$33,000 for its 6,300 square feet so-called “Trump Townhouse.”

Trump was practically on cloud nine when Kushner told him that Najib’s visit would bring in billions of dollars. Yes, the highly corrupted Malaysian leader was well prepared for the visit. After buying his way to the White House and enriching the Trump family at the Trump International Hotel, Najib Razak flew 15,328-km from Kuala Lumpur to Washington to “strengthen” U.S. economy.

In a photo which looks like Najib Razak was being interrogated, the Malaysian leader presented his value proposition to Donald Trump. The U.S. president could be sending a message of his displeasure or discomfort, if his arm-fold posture was any indicator. At the expense of Malaysian taxpayers, Najib committed to 25 planes of Boeing 737 MAX 10, plus eight 787 Dreamliners.

Najib Razak also baited Trump with a possibility of buying an additional 25 more Boeing 737 MAX 10 in the near future, bringing to the table a deal worth more than US$10 billion within 5 years. The second proposal was to get EPF (Employees Provident Fund) – a major pension fund entrusted with hard-earned money from 14.72 million members – to splash US$4 billion in U.S. infrastructure redevelopment.

The ball-sucking drama didn’t stop there. Najib also shamelessly committed millions of dollars more of investment from Khazanah Nasional Berhad (KNB), another sovereign fund, into U.S. high-tech companies in Silicon Valley. It’s laughable that while Malaysians back home are suffering from skyrocketing cost of living, Mr. Najib saw it necessary to pump more than US$20 billion to “Make America Great Again.”

Does America, a military and economic superpower, desperately need money from a third world country Malaysia to rebuild its infrastructure? While it makes perfect sense for Trump to take the investment money, as part of his “America first” policy, what does rebuilding America got to do with Najib? Why should Najib interfere in the internal affairs of the U.S.?

If Najib loves the U.S. so much that he was willing to sacrifice the well-being of his own people in favour of the Americans, perhaps he should consider migrating to the country, the same way he has been lecturing Malaysian Chinese to go back to China if they don’t like their country. Worse still, as a Muslim why should Najib worship anti-Muslim Trump?

More importantly, given that Malaysia is capable of funding U.S. infrastructure, why couldn’t Najib administration fund the local project such as the Bandar Malaysia but was reduced to begging China for bailout? And since the country has so much loose change, why then Najib couldn’t even pay US$600 million of debt to IPIC (International Petroleum Investment Company)?

Obviously, Mr. Najib’s so-called value proposition was nothing but bribing Trump administration, to which Mr. Trump gleefully accepted. The best joke of the visit was when Najib committed to fight Daesh, Islamic State, Al-Qaeda, Abu Sayyaf and whatnot. Again, Trump has proven that he’s the biggest American moron for believing Najib’s tales.

Even billionaire George Soros, a Democrats hardcore supporter, had advised Hillary Clinton – secretly – not to follow Barack Obama’s mistake of wrongfully chosen to befriend Najib Razak. Exposed in a leaked memo, Najib was described as “a poster boy for the 21st century kleptocracy” who has used “a racial supremacist ideology that is collapsing under the weight of corruption” to perpetuate himself in power.

On the subject of “radicalized Islamic terrorists”, the 3 favourite magic words often used by Donald Trump, the memo said Obama was naive because under Najib regime, Malaysia is a “net exporter” of militants to Indonesia and Mindanao. The government estimates that there are 50,000 ISIS sympathizers in Malaysia, including members of the military.

Yet, despite splashing more than US$20 billion in bribery hoping that Donald Trump could somehow influence the U.S. Department of Justice’s investigation on the US$4.5 billion 1MDB scandal, Najib Razak didn’t receive his fair share of honour. The White House had originally planned to allow reporters into an Oval Office meeting between Trump and Najib.

That was what Najib had paid and hoped for. Journalists from the Malaysian government-controlled press and TV were there ready to snap photos of hand-shakes between both leaders so that they could be used to spin and twist tales that Najib’s corruption and money laundering in the 1MDB scandal has been effectively cleansed. Unfortunately, the photo-op was cancelled for obvious reason.

Under tremendous pressure, the White House figured it would do more harm than good if photographers were allowed to take the photo – a traditional practise – of the two leaders sitting side by side. This is perhaps the first time in history that a foreign leader – Najib Razak – is denied a simple photo-op at the White House despite pledging US$20 billion to help rebuild American infrastructure.

However, the humiliation didn’t start there. Due to the high profile of Najib’s involvement in the 1MDB scandal, which represents the largest action brought under the Kleptocracy Asset Recovery Initiative, it’s still unclear of the type of visit accorded to the Malaysian leader. There’re basically 5 types of formal visits to the United States by a foreign leader – state, official, official working, working or private visit.



As the Prime Minister of Malaysia, Najib Razak was supposedly entitled to an “Official Visit”. A “State Visit” is for head of state such as Queen Elizabeth II, so in the case of Malaysia would be the King (Agong). In terms of customary length, both “State Visit” and “Official Visit” are normally 4 days, with a White House dinner thrown in.

When Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong arrived last year (2016) for his visit to the White House, he was being honoured with a 19-gun salute and a military band playing by the US Ceremonial Guard at the South Lawn, along with thousands who turned up with miniature U.S. and Singapore flags for the official arrival ceremony.

Mr. Lee and his wife were greeted by Mr. Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, despite Singapore being a little red dot. Later, Mr. and Mrs Obama hosted Mr. and Mrs Lee to a state dinner celebrating the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Singapore and the U.S. There was also the exchange of diplomatic gift, as according to the official protocol.

In comparison, Najib received none of such honours. Heck, not only was Najib denied all the bells and whistles his neighbour country Singapore received, there was also no high ranking U.S. official to receive him at the Joint Base Andrews in Maryland. Embarrassingly, his arrival in the United States was received by Malaysian Ambassador to the United States Zulhasnan Rafique.

Hey, wait a minute. Isn’t this year the 60th anniversary of U.S.-Malaysia relationship? That’s right, Najib deliberately reminded Trump during the meeting that this year is also the anniversary between both countries, but still, received a “pariah visit” status. If it was neither a “State Visit” nor an “Official Visit”, then could Najib’s visit fell into the third ranking – “Official Working Visit”?

Sadly, it wasn’t even qualified as – “Official Working Visit” – simply because Trump administration didn’t think the Malaysian leader fit for a state department luncheon. Therefore, Najib’s visit to the White House, despite Malaysian taxpayers made poorer by US$20 billion, was reduced to 4th ranking – “Working Visit”.



If you think about the whole White House visit, it makes perfect sense that Najib was given the “deplorable” visit status. Unlike Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong, Mr. Najib’s visit looked more like a naughty student caught vandalizing school properties and stealing fellow classmates’ money, hence was sent to the school administration office to be disciplined.

As it turned out, in front of President Trump, Vice President Pence and Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Najib Razak promised to behave and not be influenced by gang members Daesh (ISIS, ISIL, IS). He also promised to clean up the school compound as part of the punishment – in the form of US$20 billion investment – of which he didn’t need to commit had he not stolen any money.

Strangely, unlike Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong’s visit to the White House, the customary joint press conference was also cancelled during Malaysia Prime Minister Najib Razak’s historical visit. Even Germany Chancellor Angela Merkel’s visit to the White House was granted a joint press conference, where Trump demanded Merkel to pay “fair share” for defense in NATO.

Does this mean Najib Razak is more toxic than Angela Merkel? Clearly, not only Mr. Najib would be bombarded with pesky questions from the media on the US investigations into the 1MDB scandal, Mr. Trump would be humiliated too with awkward questions as to why he didn’t think it was wrong to welcome the world’s biggest crook to the White House.

Trump might have tweeted – “It’s great to have the prime minister of Malaysia and his very distinguished delegation with us today. Mr. Prime Minister, it’s a great honour to have you in the United States and in the White House.” But in reality, the way Najib Razak was being treated as the Commander-in-Chief of Malaysia, it’s both deplorable and pariah. - financetwitter.
