Sapa terima RM270 juta bila tanah Felda dipindah milik...


Polis dan Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) perlu menyiasat penglibatan Datuk Seri Najib Razak dalam isu pertukaran hakmilik tanah Felda.

“Perdana Menteri adalah menteri yang bertangungjawab ke atas Felda dan pelupusan aset Felda yang mana memerlukan kelulusan Perdana Menteri.

“Seksyen 3(3)(C) dan 3(3)(C)(a) Akta Pembangunan Tanah 1956 memerlukan Felda mendapatkan kelulusan menteri yang bertanggungjawab untuk memasuki apa apa perjanjian dengan pemaju, termasuklah projek usaha sama.

Pengerusi Felda Tan Sri Shahrir Samad mempertahankan Najib yang kononnya tidak tahu menahu bahawa tanah Felda ditukar hak milik.

Shahrir dalam sidang media semalam mengumumkan Felda mendapat kembali hak tanah di Jalan Semarak selepas ia dipindah milik kepada Synergy Promenade Sdn Bhd, pemaju projek Kuala Lumpur Vertical City, melalui transaksi meragukan sejak 2015.



Beliau turut menegaskan bahawa proses mendapatkan semula hak milik itu dibuat tanpa sebarang kos, namun ia tetap menimbulkan persoalan yang lain.

“Persoalan yang timbul adakah benar-benar penyerahan semula hakmilik tanah tersebut dibuat tanpa sebarang balasan sedangkan Tan Sri Shahrir Samad sebelum ini mendakwa Felda tidak menerima bayaran RM270 juta untuk penjualan tanah tersebut. 

“Ini adalah kerana adalah tidak logik untuk syarikat tersebut menyerahkan semula tanah tersebut tanpa sebarang balasan. Untuk apa mereka perlu menanggung kerugian sebanyak RM270 juta.

“Maka, persoalan seterusnya, siapakah sebenarnya yang menerima bayaran RM270 juta untuk pindah milik tanah Felda tersebut?” soal mereka.



Timbul persoalan sama ada ia ada berkait rapat pengumuman Shahrir bahawa projek Kuala Lumpur Vertical City akan diteruskan kerana berbeza dengan kenyataan yang dibuat beliau sebelum ini.

“Pengerusi Felda Tan Sri Shahrir Samad pada 21 Disember 2017 mengumumkan bahawa Lembaga Pengarah Felda yang bermesyuarat pada 15 Disember 2017 memutuskan untuk tidak lagi meneruskan projek Kuala Lumpur Vertical City.

“Namun, Tan Sri Shahrir Samad semalam menyatakan sebaliknya apabila bersetuju membenarkan syarikat tersebut meneruskan projek pembangunan tersebut,” ujar mereka.

Sehubungan itu polis dan SPRM perlu meneruskan siasatan berhubung isu pindah milik tanah tersebut kerana Shahrir sendiri mengakui bahawa ia meragukan.

“Penyerahan semula hakmilik tanah tersebut tidak membersihkan nama dan perbuatan jenayah mereka yang terlibat,” tegas mereka. – Roketkini.com

Hindraf's "zero votes for BN"and 
the Indian vote in 31 marginal seats...

Many people are not aware that in the last elections, the Barisan Nasional (mostly UMNO) has won 31 Parliamentary seats in rural areas with razor thin majorities. These are the "marginal seats".  There are another 59 State seats (DUN) which were also won by the BN with slim majorities.

Hence Rafizi Ramli's calculation that a 2% swing in the Malay vote alone can mean that the BN/UMNO can lose these 31 Parliamentary and 59 State seats.

There is however another factor.  In many of these seats, the number of Indian voters far outnumbers the slim majorities by which the BN won those marginal seats.  Here are some numbers. My comments in blue.

Kerjasama antara Pakatan Harapan dan HINDRAF akan tumbangkan BN

PERAK -

1. Parlimen – Bagan Datoh (2013)
Majoriti  - 2,108  (UMNO Zahid Hamidi)
Undi India – 9,423
(ostb : This is Zahid Hamidi's seat. The number of Indian voters is 4.5 times Zahid Hamidi's slim majority of 2,108.  If just 1054 Indians switch over, Zahid Hamidi is history.) 

2. Parlimen – Bukit Gantang (2013)
Majoriti – 986
Undi India – 6,978
(ostb : In Bukit Gantang, the Indian voters are SEVEN TIMES more than the thin margin of 986 votes. If only 493 Indians switch their votes, the BN will lose Bukit Gantang.)

3.  Parlimen - Teluk Intan (2013)   
Majoriti -  238
Undi India – 11,491
(ostb :  Indian voters are 48 TIMES more than the razor thin majority of 238 votes. If only 119 Indians switch over, the BN will lose Teluk Intan too.)

JOHOR

4.  Parlimen – Labis (2013)
Majority -  353
Undi India – 5,698
(ostb : Woi, siapa MP Labis ah? Itu Cina MCA kah? Indian voters are 16 TIMES more than the slim majority of 353 votes. Only 178 Indians need to swing away for the BN to lose Labis as well.)

5. Parliament – Tebrau (2013)
Majority – 1767
Undi India – 5,818
(ostb : Indian voters are THREE TIMES more than the 1767 majority. If only 884 Indians switch votes, the BN will lose Tebrau also.)  

6. Parliment – Pulai (2013)
Majoriti – 3226
Undi India – 11,090
(ostb : Indians are 3.4 TIMES the slim majority of 3226 votes. 1613 Indians can send the BN packing in Pulai as well.)

KEDAH

7. Parlimen – Jerai (2013)
Majoriti – 1,196
Undi India – 4,688
(ostb : Indian voters are almost FOUR TIMES the winning margin of 1196 votes. Only 598 Indians need to switch votes and the BN will lose Parlimen Jerai as well.)

8.  Parlimen – Merbok (2013)
Majority – 4,122
Undi India – 15,033
(ostb : This is my favorite.  Indian voters are 3.64 times the slim margin of 4,122 votes. If 2061 Indians switch votes, the BN will lose Merbok as well.)

9. Parlimen – Kulim Bandar Baru
Majoriti -  1891
Undi India – 7,857
(ostb :  Indians are FOUR TIMES the winning margin of 1891 votes. If 946 Indians switch votes, ten the BN will lose Kulim Bandar Baru too.)

Di atas adalah contoh bagaimana gabungan antara PH dan HINDRAF boleh mengalahkan BN.

The question is "Can Mr P Waythamoorthy and his Hindraf boys swing the Indian vote?"

Lets look at some facts and real numbers. 

During the 12th GE  (GE12 in 2008) – which was held AFTER that famous Hindraf demonstration  
Total Indian votes in GE12 was  660,340 votes.
Indian votes for Pakatan Rakyat was 470,954 (71.32%)
Indian votes for BN was  189,385 (28.68%)

Do take note that 2008 was the great watershed year in Malaysian politics when the BN (under Slumberjack) first lost the 2/3 majority in Parliament. This was also due in some part to the Hindraf campaigning AGAINST the BN in 2008.

Then at the 13th General Elections (GE13) things switched around. Najib  signed a pact with the Hindraf and Waythamoorthy.  The BN would provide hundreds of millions of Ringgit for Indian development and put Waythamoorthy in charge of the Indian programs.

In return the Hindraf would campaign for the BN, which Hindraf and Mr Waythamoorthy did quite successfully. The result was that in the GE13 in 2013, while the BN actually lost more votes, when they lost the popular vote and when the BN lost even more Parliamentary seats, the ONLY consolation for the BN was that the Indian vote had swung back to the BN.  Here are the numbers. For GE13 in 2013 :
Total Indian votes in GE13  - 859,993 votes.
Indian votes for BN – 425,165 (49.44%)
India votes for the Pakatan Rakyat  – 434,828 (50.56%)

Note carefully :
In GE12 the Indian vote for the BN was 189,000 (Hindraf anti BN)
In GE13 the Indian vote for the BN was 425,000 (Hindraf pro BN)

Hindraf had made the Indian vote increase by 2.24 TIMES from GE12 to GE13. And this was at a time when the BN lost the popular vote, lost more seats in Parliament and almost lost the GE13. 

AND THE MIC WAS ONLY ABLE TO WIN FOUR PARLIAMENTARY SEATS !!!

Clearly Hindraf's campaigning and the Indian vote had helped to save the BN's backside.

And now for the GE14 the HINDRAF, along with PPBM  is very active in the States and 'luar bandar' areas.

The Hindraf has launched their 'Zero Votes For BN' campaign (“Undi Sifar Untuk BN”) which is gaining traction in the rural areas, especially among the Indians. Hindraf is also working on the ground with PPBM, Amanah, PKR and the DAP.  

Hindraf launched the "Zero Votes for BN" campaign in Seremban recently which saw a good Indian turnout in excess of 3,500 people.  (This is a huge number for Indians). Also in attendance was DAP's P Ramasamy, Deputy Chief Minister of Penang.

Hindraf is also cooperating closely with PPBM which will be contesting many of those marginal UMNO/BN seats in the rural or "luar bandar" areas in Johor, Kedah, Perak and other such seats. 

The Gabungan between the Hindraf and the PPBM can and will break the UMNO/BN hold in those marginal seats. - ostb

Lepas tangkap khalwat, pak imam rogol mangsa khalwat...

Polis Sabah menahan seorang penguatkuasa agama yang disyaki merogol seorang gadis berusia 14 tahun di sebuah hotel di Beaufort. —  Paparan skrin Google

Seorang gadis bawah umur yang ditangkap khalwat, dirogol seorang penguat kuasa agama selepas memperdaya mangsa.

"Imam," 50 tahun, berjanji menguruskan dokumen perkahwinan selepas mangsa, 14 tahun, dan pasangannya ditangkap khalwat 16 Disember lepas.

Suspek ke rumah mangsa pada 29 Disember lalu dan mengajaknya menguruskan dokumen dengan ditemani adik lelaki gadis tersebut, lapor Harian Metro.

Mangsa diminta mendaftar masuk ke sebuah hotel di sini untuk mengisi borang nikah manakala adiknya menunggu di sebuah restoran.

"Suspek kemudian masuk ke dalam bilik hotel lalu memujuk rayu mangsa sebelum merogolnya," kata sumber portal itu.

Suspek mengulangi perbuatannya di hotel sama pada 3 Januari lalu, sebelum aduan dibuat keluarga mangsa semalam dan tangkapan dibuat pada hari sama.

Pesuruhjaya polis Sabah Datuk Ramli Din mengesahkan tangkapan. Kes disiasat bawah Seksyen 376 Kanun Keseksaan kerana merogol.- themalaymailonline

Dr.M : Aneh Parlimen bersidang 
sampai 6 penggal...

Pengerusi Pakatan Harapan, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad menyifatkan Parlimen yang akan bersidang buat kali keenam bermula 5 Mac hingga 5 April nanti sebagai aneh.

Ini kerana menurut beliau Parlimen kebiasaannya bersidang hanya selama lima penggal.

“Biasanya diadakan lima kali sesi parlimen. Tetapi kali ini kita akan ada enam kali.

“Ini juga kita nak tahu dari segi undang-undang (sama ada dibenarkan atau tidak),” ujarnya dalam sidang media di Ibu Pejabat PPBM di Petaling Jaya, hari ini.

Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak dijangka membubarkan Parlimen dan mengadakan pilihan raya selepas persidangan penggal keenam tamat.

Antara agenda utama persidangan tersebut adalah mengenai persempadan semula yang didakwa ramai pihak dibuat untuk memberi kemenangan selesa kepada Najib dan UMNO. – Roketkini.com


Silap mata tanah Felda 
kejap hilang,kejap dapat balik...

Apakah penyelesaian skandal “kehilangan” hak milik tanah Felda di Jalan Semarak, Kuala Lumpur, semudah itu? Adakah kes itu dikira selesai semata-mata hanya kerana hak milik ke atas 16 lot tanah yang dikatakan hilang itu sudah dipulangkan?

Kalau itulah caranya, nampak sangat bahawa ada silap mata dalam “kehilangan” dan “perolehan balik” tanah bernilai tinggi itu. Hanya orang betul bendul dan tidak tahu apa-apa sahaja akan percaya penyelesaian ajaib ala wayang kulit itu.

Jadi elok sangatlah audit forensik dan siasatan polis ke atas bagaimana sebuah syarikat persendirian berjaya mengambil alih pemilikan tanah itu diteruskan seperti yang dikatakan oleh Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Mohd Najib Abdul Razak.

Dalam satu pesanan “Tweet” hari ini yang dilaporkan oleh New Straits Times atas talian, Najib berkata dia bersyukur 16 lot tanah itu dipulangkan tanpa sebarang kos. Inilah yang menakjubkan. Bagaimanakah tanah yang dianggarkan bernilai RM270 juta, dengan nilai terbangun kasar (gross development value) melebihi RM1 billion, boleh dipulangkan tanpa kos?

Kalau pemindahan hak milik tanah itu dilakukan dengan telus mengikut undang-undang, tentulah ada perjanjian dan pembayaran. Bila ada perjanjian dan pembayaran, maka pemindahan balik hak milik kepada Felda pun mesti ada perjanjian dan pembayaran.

Tetapi macam Najib sendiri akui, pemulangan hak milik tanah itu kepada Felda tidak melibatkan sebarang bayaran atau kos? Jadi apakah jenis urusan jual-beli yang menyebabkan tanah itu terlepas daripada tangan Felda dan kemudiannya dimajukan menjadi Kuala Lumpur Vertical City?

Apakah sebenarnya syarikat Synergy Promenade Sdn Bhd yang memulangkan 16 lot tanah itu kepada Felda dan siapakah di belakangnya? Apa kita ketahui daripada laporan media ialah ia diwakili oleh seorang ahli lembaga pengarahnya bernama (Datuk) Marina Hashim.

Carian Internet mendapati Synergy Promenade ini adalah syarikat kontraktor dan peniagaan umum yang ditubuhkan pada tahun 2000. Kalau Marina Hashim (pix,bawah) itu sama dengan wanita yang dipersembahkan oleh majalah Nona pada 18 September tahun lalu, maka dia adalah seorang jelitawan dan ibu dalam usia 40-an.



Dalam laporan itu, majalah tersebut memetik salah seorang anaknya, Muhammad Nuraiman Rayyan Erwazri, sebagai berkata ibunya “bekerjasama rapat dengan pengurusan Lembaga Kemajuan Tanah Persekutuan (Felda).” Sesiapa yang berminat boleh baca DI SINI.

Jadi audit forensik dan penyiasatan polis yang Najib sebutkan itu perlulah memastikan apakah bentuk kerjasama rapat di antara wanita itu dengan pengurusan Felda.

Memandangkan banyaknya kejadian berbentuk skandal dan rasuah yang berlaku dalam Felda dan Felda Global Ventures (FGV) yang kesemuanya mengancam kepentingan peneroka Felda serta generasi kedua Felda, maka wajiblah skandal tanah Jalan Semarak ini disiasat hingga ke akar umbi.

Manalah tahu mungkin benar-benar wujud apa yang dipanggil “FGVMafia” dalam FGV dan Felda yang menjadi dalang menghisap darah peneroka.- A Kadir Jasin

Saving The Best For Last...

Like everyone else I looked forward to some welcoming news ahead of 2018, as I am a true believer that good things only happen at the end of the show. But it was one disappointment after another as 2017 came to a close. Topping my list of disappointments was the unravelling of the scandal behind Felda’s Jalan Semerak land deal. It was clearly a fraud committed by those responsible for the wellbeing of the many settlers of the once-promising land development scheme. Today Felda (Federal Land Development Authority) is fast becoming a farce with billions of the rakyat’s hard-earned money being siphoned off by crooked officials and politicians.

The scandal involves the transfer of four pieces of prime land belonging to the agency, located in the heart of Kuala Lumpur, by the appointed developer to an entity which the developer has an interest in. The current market value of the land is in excess of RM2 billion. However, it was “sold” for RM270 million, a fraction of what it is on the market. Felda, unfortunately, did not receive a single sen from the transaction although it was finalised in December 2015.        



Incidentally, scandal-ridden Felda is embroiled in many other financial fiascos that have surfaced over the last few years. What many find puzzling is the silence on the part of the Prime Minister’s Department who is responsible for the agency’s management. Was there complicity or perhaps a hidden hand behind the numerous “dubious dealings” that had incurred considerable loss to the government and the settlers? Obviously, those entrusted to manage and administer the agency are not what they are but wolves in sheep’s clothing. To pacify the settlers they, from time to time, are given handouts worth pittance in exchange for their loyalty, patience and trust. This sucks.

Newly-appointed Felda chairman, Sharir Samad, is at a loss trying to untangle the mystery. Although the Police and the anti-corruption commission are hard on the heels of the culprits, a solution is impossible with the present hierarchy. Meanwhile, the crooks are spending their ill-gotten gains without an iota of guilt. The country’s pride and credibility are being badly affected by these irresponsible people.



I thought Felda’s problem would be the finale of a tumultuous 2017 only to be jolted by another shocker nearer home. The notice on the door of Ipoh City Council’s Perak Tourism Information Centre adjacent to iconic Ipoh Padang had many in stitches. The centre was closed on New Year’s Eve and on New Year’s Day. Its closure on a significant public holiday was not the issue here but the hastily written notice in English was. The Menteri Besar had attributed the blooper to oversight and had faulted the writer for having used the popular online application Google Translate to create his “masterpiece”. The notice was full of grammatical and spelling mistakes. It would make any sane visitor to the centre that day squeamish.

In 2012 when the first Visit Perak Year was introduced I dropped by the centre to have a first-hand look at things on display there. I was told that captions of posters and written illustrations were poorly worded. This would reflect badly on Ipoh City Council. I offered to correct the mistakes, pro bono, thus saving the Council money and time. My well-meaning gesture was never taken seriously, as those responsible persisted in doing what they felt was right. So whatever happened came as no surprise to me. But the fact that the glitch had gone viral on social media had everyone, from mayor to Menteri Besar, on their toes, speaks volumes of the importance of the English language.



If we want foreign tourists to continue coming Ipoh’s way, good spoken and written English is a must. In this instance, the fault lies with the department head not the poor counter staff who took it upon himself to write something which he is ill-trained for.

However, on hindsight, the capacity of senior government officers is also suspect. How many of them can write and converse in English? I have come across many who simply cannot string a simple sentence in English let alone write anything legible. Our education system has degenerated to what it is today thanks to the many nationalistic leaders who insist that English is the language of the penjajah (colonials). 



Notwithstanding the gloom, there was one event that helped brighten the tail end of 2017. It happened at Ipoh’s airport on Thursday, December 28. A young man went out of his way to win the hands of his beau. His elaborate marriage proposal plan cost him a whopping RM10,000 to execute but it was worth every sen. He got the girl of his dreams and the couple walked happily into the aircraft that took them to Singapore and back.

So, what is in stock for us in 2018? There are five official long weekends (one has already gone) and 11 public holidays to contend with. The icing is of course the much-anticipated GE 14. No definite dates are in the offing yet but, rest assured, the mother of all elections is set to rock the nation to its foundation. I am not making any predictions but remain optimistic of an upset given the current political climate. - Fathol Zaman Bukhari,Ipoh Echo

UMNO-PAS cuba perbodohkan orang Melayu...


Terdapat usaha menakut-nakutkan orang Melayu untuk mengundi Pakatan Harapan (HARAPAN) pada pilihan raya umum ke-14 (PRU-14).

Serangan yang sudah masuk ‘gear empat’ itu menurut Ahli Majlis Pimpinan Tertinggi PPBM, Datuk Abdul Kadir Jasin dirancang UMNO serta sekutunya PAS.

Antara fitnah yang ditimbulkan adalah DAP kononnya akan menguasai kerajaan jika HARAPAN berjaya membentuk kerajaan.

“Tetapi mereka tidaklah hebahkan yang DAP hanya bertanding 37 daripada 222 kerusi Dewan Rakyat,” ujarnya dalam tulisan di blognya, baru-baru ini.

Menurut wartawan veteran itu, yang penting bagi UMNO dan PAS ketika ini adalah pembohongan mereka itu dipercayai oleh orang Melayu.

“Dalam pemikiran mereka, orang Melayu luar bandar dan peneroka FELDA boleh diperbodohkan.

“Inilah ‘Islam’ PAS dan wassatiyah UMNO iaitu berbohong dan memperbodohkan rakyat jelata,” katanya.

Untuk rekod, PPBM merupakan parti komponen HARAPAN yang bertanding kerusi terbanyak di Semenanjung Malaysia iaitu sebanyak 52 kerusi, diikuti PKR 51 kerusi, DAP 35 kerusi dan Amanah 27 kerusi. – Roketkini.com.



Gandingan Mahathir-Anwar 
bikin UMNO goyang...

Adakah UMNO kini begitu goyang dengan kekuatan Pakatan Harapan (HARAPAN) sehingga mahu menyekat Ketua Umum PKR, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim daripada menyampaikan mesejnya kepada rakyat?

Demikian persoalan yang dibangkitkan Setiausaha Antarabangsa Sosialis Muda DAP (DAPSY), Howard Lee sebagai respon kepada gertakan Timbalan Menteri Dalam Negeri Datuk Nur Jazlan Mohamed.

Nur Jazlan dilaporkan media berkata tindakan bekas timbalan perdana menteri itu mengeluarkan kenyataan tanpa kelulusan Jabatan penjara adalah satu kesalahan dan boleh memberi impak kepada tempoh tahanannya.

“Adakah ini semua tanda-tanda bahawa UMNO bakal runtuh di bawah tekanan Anwar dan perdamaian antara beliau dan Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad?” kata Howard dalam kenyataan, hari ini.

Anwar dalam satu kenyataan sebelum ini merestui pencalonan Dr Mahathir sebagai perdana menteri jika HARAPAN dapat membentuk kerajaan selepas pilihan raya umum ke-14 (PRU-14).

Dalam perkembangan lain, Howard yang juga Adun Pasir Pinji berkata, usaha UMNO memujuk PAS berjaya daripada segi taktikal, namun daripada segi strategi ia terbukti gagal.

“Mereka (UMNO) tidak boleh tendang keluar PAS sekarang, memandangkan mereka memerlukan setiap undi yang boleh diraih, kerana PPBM sedang hebat menghentam mereka sehingga mereka kini dalam keadaan kritikal.

“Ini adalah perang hidup atau mati (Datuk Seri) Najib (Razak) dan UMNO, kekalahan Najib adalah lebih teruk daripada kematian,” ujarnya.

Dua watak utama, Anwar dan Dr Mahathir, yang dulunya bersama UMNO kini bekerjasama dalam HARAPAN katanya bukan untuk merampas kembali parti lama mereka daripada Najib sebaliknya mahu menyerang habis-habisan perdana menteri itu.

“Mungkin sebab inilah Nur Jazlan melompat. Dengan faktor Anwar-Mahathir, rakyat khususnya orang Melayu sudah bersedia untuk perubahan,” tegasnya. – Roketkini.com

Delusi politik dalam PAS
The delusional politics of PAS...

THERE are delusional people. There are empty vessels. There are dreamers. And then there is PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang who occupies his own universe. 

He recently suggested that his party, which has been a bit player before it hung onto the coattails of the Reformasi movement, could win 40 parliamentary seats and emerge as the kingmaker after GE14.

Without the support of non-Malays, PAS candidates will only be able to rely on the votes of its base in the coming elections. The result will be predictable: PAS candidates will be annihilated in most of the contests for seats.

It currently has 14 parliamentary seats. Pollsters believe that Hadi's PAS will pay the price of leaving the opposition fold and getting cosy with Najib Razak –  by ending up with fewer than 10 MPs in Parliament.

But Hadi needs to stick to his narrative because he has managed to convince some of his party men that somehow, the Islamist party has become a major force in Malaysian politics.

He needs to persuade them that his strategy of getting friendly with Umno and becoming "independent" of Pakatan Harapan will bear unprecedented dividends.

We believe that his target of 40 seats is so unattainable that we have come up with a list of events that are more likely to occur before Hadi's pie in the sky is realised.

Here's the list:

1. The Malaysian football team will qualify for the World Cup and lift the trophy in Qatar in 2022.

2. Low Taek Jho, the PM's buddy and businessman linked to the 1Malaysia Development Bhd scandal, will be knighted by the Queen of England; he will also be appointed adviser to the International Monetary Fund.

3. Malaysia's youth will give up Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and other social platforms.

4. Mr Red Shirt Jamal Yunus will retire to a life of solitude.

5. Utusan Malaysia will select Ambiga Sreenivasan as Malaysian of the Year.

6. DAP will join Barisan Nasional and Lim Guan Eng will be the Finance Minister in Najib’s cabinet.

7. Dr Mahathir Mohamad will cease to be the polarising figure he is in Malaysia.

8. Some Umno politicians will finally understand that the DOJ is not a Malaysian agency but the Justice Department of the United States and that the 1MDB probe is not some "masak-masak". 

9. Isa Samad will be cleared of all wrongdoing in Felda and will live happily ever after.

10. Najib will retire from politics.

This is a list so ludicrous it should be dismissed outright. The fact that Hadi’s 40-seat prediction is even more unlikely than any of the events on the list indicates the ridiculous scale of his thinking. 

The reality for PAS is this: it will most likely lose Kelantan and a whole bunch of its current MPs will have to join the unemployment queue after GE14. 

The party faithful have a suspicion that the president's so-called third force strategy is going to lead them to oblivion but they are unwilling or incapable of stopping him.

What they need is that dose of reality. Perhaps they will get it in GE14. – themalaysianinsight

Bekas pendidik gesa pengharaman biasiswa utk minoriti...


Retired teacher Raof Husin told "Rise of the Ummah Convention" here, that the govt had constitutionally bound to limit study aid to Bumi students. He asked the govt to end federal scholarships for minority to uplift Malay supremacy ahead of 14th general election.

The will of six late Malay Rulers during negotiations with British 

govt must uphold Article 153(1)Bumiputera Special Privilege in education.

Article 153 states YDP Agong’s prerogative to reserve scholarships, civil service positions for Bumi community.Raof's group is against scholarships based on merit...


Kepada sahabat2 di UMMAH, MTEM dan lain-lain. Masalahnya bukan di pihak minoriti. Masalahnya dengan pihak Melayu dan Islam. Kita lihat umat Islam sedunia dulu. Di seluruh dunia ada dua kategori umat Islam. 

Pertama sekali adalah kategori umat Islam yang hidup susah, papa kedana, tidak cerdik, kurang pandai,  bergaduh, berperang, berselisih, tergelincir akidah (pada pandangan mazhab lain). Kategori umat Islam ini menghuni kesemua negara Islam yang menjadi ahli OIC. Malaysia pun ahli OIC.

Kedua adalah umat Islam yang hidup senang lenang, mewah, kaya raya, cerdik, terpelajar, pandai, hidup aman antara berbagai jenis mazhab dan aqidah yang berbeza  (shiah, sunnah, sufi, tasawuf, salafi, wahabi, tablighi, ahmadiyah dan lain-lain).   Kategori umat Islam ini menghuni negara-negara kafir (atau negara bukan Islam) seperti Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Denmark, England, France, Finland, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Singapura, China, Taiwan dan sebagainya. 

Kalau tidak kaya macam orang bukan Islam pun, sekurang-kurangnya umat Islam di negara kafir ini hidup aman sesama banyak mazhab yang berlainan. Contohnya tidak ada kes orang ahlul sunnah dan salafi berperang dengan orang syiah atau ahmadiyah di Canada, Amerika Syarikat, Australia, England atau Perancis - walaupun terdapat berjuta penduduk Islam di negara itu. 



Sedihnya umat Islam yang hidup paling aman, kaya dan selesa terdapat di negara kafir. Contohnya di Singapura peratusan umat Islam yang memiliki rumah kediaman yang moden dan selesa adalah antara yang paling tinggi bagi umat Islam sedunia. Hampir 95% keluarga (household) Melayu Islam di Singapura memiliki rumah mereka sendiri. Dan rumah mereka adalah cantik, bersih, dalam persekitaran yang sangat tersusun dan selamat.

Kita bandingkan keadaan ini dengan negara kita Malaysia di mana orang Islam makin susah untuk memiliki rumah sendiri walaupun di pekan atau kampong asal sendiri. Bagi mereka yang mempunyai tanah sendiri di negeri Perlis, untuk menyiapkan rumah empat bilik (mengupah kontraktor sendiri) memerlukan kos pembinaan hampir RM200,000. Berapa ramaikah umat Melayu di Perlis yang mampu belanja RM200,000 ataupun layak diluluskan pinjaman RM200,000 daripada bank? 

Jika membeli rumah daripada pemaju atau developer akan melibatkan belanja yang jauh lebih tinggi. Rumah teres dua tingkat di Kangar dijual dengan harga RM350,000. 

Tambah lagi di Singapura tidak berlaku sebarang persengketaan antara mazhab yang berlainan seperti ahlul sunnah, shiah, salafi, wahabi, ahmadiyyah, tabligh, tasawuf dan lain-lainnya.  Semua mazhab dibenarkan mengikuti kepercayaan mereka tanpa diganggu atau menganggu mazhab yang lain.

Lebih baik bagi umat Islam sedunia berhijrah saja ke negara kafir seperti Australia, Singapura, Amerika dan Kanada untuk menikmati hidup yang lebih selesa, kaya dan selamat.

Akhir kalam tidak perlu lah saya mengulas panjang berkenaan penolakan meritokrasi. Sahabat di Ummah boleh menolak meritokrasi tapi akibatnya ialah anak anda akan jadi bodoh.  Ini sudah confirm. - ostb

Ummah chairman ignorant 
of facts and history...

We refer to the Malay Mail Online report on 13 Jan 18, ‘In fiery speech, cleric tells forum only Malays fought invaders, communists’. It was reported that Ismail Mina Ahmad, the chairman of the Ummah, an umbrella group for Muslim organisations, asserted that only the Malays had battled the communists. He also said that only the Malays fought against the British and Japanese. The other assertion by the chairman of Ummah was that outspoken minorities (referring to non-Malays) posed a danger to the position of Islam in the country and Malay political rule, aiming to usurp power, and even want to be a prime minister.

Persatuan Patriot Kebangsaan (Patriot) is not in any way angry with Ismail Mina Ahmad (above), as what he purportedly said did not reflect on himself as a person well versed in current affairs and history. Being elderly and a vulnerable person, others could have easily manipulated him with sentiments relating to religion and race, especially with the general election looming and all kinds of underhand tactics would be employed. A cleric and an elderly person is usually one with wisdom, promoting love, peace, understanding, and compassion. Certainly not promoting hatred.

Patriot is very disappointed with those who sponsored Ummah in their forum that peppered with hate speeches and distorted historical facts. At a time when our economy is facing so much of uncertainty, a stagnant growth since 2016, government debt at 53.2% to the GDP, 1MDB debts to be paid, 50,000 to be out of jobs this year; any action that causes disunity will do a disfavor to our nation and society. 

Ignorance breeds contempt if allowed unchecked. Patriot has to repeat here what we mentioned before. Since the pre-independent years, through the first and second emergencies, from the early years of the Home Guard, Templer’s Super 12, the Federation Regiment, the Congo peace keeping mission, the Confrontation, the urban communist terrorism, jungle warfare in Peninsular Malaysia, Sabah and Sarawak; the non-Malay officers and men, which included Chinese, Indians, Sikhs, Orang Asli, Ibans, Dayaks, and Kadazans; fought gallantly alongside their Malay brothers-in-arms. In the Air Force, numerous non-Malay pilots flew their helicopters in dangerous mission for supplies and evacuations, and enemies shot at their aircrafts. 



These officers and men had their share of casualties and also their much-deserved share of gallantry awards. In addition, the much cherished success of our security forces against the CPM insurgents and urban terrorists was to a large extend attributed to the many dangerous and highly classified covert operations of the police Special Branch and military intelligence, many of whom were of Chinese ethnicity.  

The CPM (Communist Party of Malaya) was not totally ethnic Chinese. The 10th Regiment of the CPM was predominantly ethnic Malays, whose leaders included Abdullah CD, Rashid Mydin, and Samsiah Pakeh. Furthermore, terrorism and savage killings committed by the MPAJA (Malayan People Anti-Japanese Army) after Japan had surrendered, and who later took up arms against the British, were based on ideology, and not racial. Distorting history to suit one’s political purpose and instill hatred towards non-Malays is totally irresponsible.

Patriot calls upon the Ministers of Defence and Internal Affairs to set the record straight regarding the different ethnic groups participation and serving our country combating against our nation’s enemies and the communist insurgents. Similarly the Chief of Armed Forces and the Inspector General of Police have to openly state the same. The chief of the Armed Forces Religious Corps (KAGAT) needs to also make a statement to guide other clerics against deviant teaching. 

We have to remember those who have once served our King and country with valour. Those men comprising different races, their heroic and valiant deeds, their sacrifices must never be forgotten. Keeping quiet to such distortion of facts is not an option. It is abdicating leadership responsibility.

BG Dato Mohamed Arshad Raji

Ismail Mina and the Ummah folks do not read English. So unless you release another statement in Malay, they will not know what you are saying. The Minister of Home Affairs and the Minister of Defense may not know what is the meaning of Home Guards, who is Templer or what is the Super Twelve?  So we are really barking at the wrong tree here also.

This is evidence of a total failure in our education system especially the teaching of history in this country which seeks to wipe out the memory of anything that is not Malay or Muslim. 


Hence it was not the 8th Indian Infantry Brigade of the 9th British-Indian Infantry Division, the 3/17th Dogras in battalion strength and the Rajputs who were the first to be killed (tumpah darah)  defending Malaya from the Japanese on the beaches at Pantai Sabak in Pengkalen Chepa (Kota Bharu, Kelantan) on the morning of December 7th, 1941.  All that can be ignored. 


A community which denies history, especially its own history, will live by myths, its own myths.   It will become not relevant to reality. - ostb

Hadi - Kalu PAS menang 40 kerusi,"PAS MP for sale"...


Presiden PAS Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang menjangkakan tiada satu pun parti yang akan dapat kerusi yang cukup dalam pilihan raya umum (PRU) ke-14 untuk membentuk kerajaan.

Dalam masa sama, menurut Abdul Hadi, sekiranya PAS boleh dapat 40 kerusi, parti itu akan menjadi tempat kebergantungan parti lain yang ingin menubuhkan kerajaan.

“Jika PAS boleh mendapat 40 kerusi parlimen, parti lain yang tidak boleh nak tubuh (kerajaan) akan bergantung kepada 40 kerusi ini.

“Walau pun parti lain ada 100 kerusi, 80 kerusi, kerana nak tubuh kerajaan kena ada minima 112 kerusi.

“Jika PAS ada 40 kerusi, bermakna kita akan menjadi tempat kebergantungan siapa yang nak tubuh kerajaan. Dengan 40 kerusi ini kita (PAS) ada pengaruh dan boleh minta macam-macam,” katanya seperti dilapor Harakah Daily. 


PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang predicted no single party would get enough seats to form the next government, and said the Islamist party was in a good position to make demands if it had enough seats.

“If PAS can get 40 parliamentary seats, other parties wouldn't be able to form (the) government without depending on our 40 seats.

“This means we would be the ones who would be needed for anyone who wants to form (the) government.

“With 40 seats, we, therefore, have influence and can make all sorts of demands

 In the last election, the Islamist party won 22 parliamentary seats when it was part of the now defunct Pakatan Rakyat.

It has since left the pact and is now actively promoting its own pact, Gagasan Sejathera, and going it alone at the coming polls.

The pact is looking at fielding candidates in 132 seats. - mk


Masa bersama PR pun hanya dpt 21 kerusi, ini kan lagi bertanding solo nak 40 kerusi. Ini bukanlah berangan, tapi membongak!!!Mcm mana parti lebai boleh memperbodoh2kan ahli?Sejak almarhum TGNA takde, makin menjadi2 perangai umno dlm parti.- Husny Harun

Ustat-ustat pandai berpolitik, itu baru duk hayal belum menang lagi, sejarah telah membuktikan PAS belum pernah memenangi melepasi 30 kerusi sebelum ini dengan bantu cina dan india ini kan pula hanya melayu saja baye-baye la.- Sukri Daud

Ianya bukan sifir matematik. Yang tu pun belum tentu kekal. Realiti politiknya dimana nak korek undi bukan Islam? Apa Pas ingat UMNO akan berpeluk tubuh? Silap haribulan Kelantanpun larut. Bila UMNO puji itu alamat tak baik. - Ibn Abd Halim 

PAS harus sedar suasana politik pru13 tak sama dgn pru14...semasa pru13..PAS kena kaji dari 21 kerusi yg dimenanginya bukan solid undi melayu..tapi campuran dari undi cina dan india....apabila PAS tidak lagi dlm PR..sudah tentu beberapa kerusi yg dimenangi dlm kwsn campuran sudah tentu sukar utk PAS kekalkan kerusi2 tersebut...apa lagi jika berlaku 3 penjuru. Jadi peluang utk PAS dpt lebih dari 21 kerusi dlm pru14 nanti sangat sukar..melainkan PAS bergabung sama ada dgn PH atau dgn BN..tu je jalannya.- Rusli Omar

Pas hanya pandai berkecuali di Parlimen. Tak pernah pedulikan beban rakyat. Lebai mimpi aje lah menang 40 buah kerusi. - Grace Tang

Parti/gabungan yang menang kerusi terbanyak, misalnya 100 kerusi, walaupun tak cukup 112 kerusi, parti/gabungan tersebut masih boleh bentuk kerajaan "minoriti" selaku parti/gabungan terbesar dlm Parlimen tanpa perlukan penyertaan/sokongan rasmi daripada PAS.

HARAPAN memang tak akan terima syarat-syarat PAS. Najib pula akan berdepan penarikan diri Sabah/Sarawak jika terima PAS melebihi daripada tahap sekarang, yang mana boleh menyebabkan kerajaan "minoriti" Najib selepas PRU 14 bertahan sekejap sahaja.

PAS pasti nak undang2 syariah dilaksanakan segera jika Najib mahukan kerjasama PAS melebihi tahap "gundik simpanan". Sabah/Sarawak sangat2 pantang bahagian ini. PAS ni bila bukak mulut, selalu lupa yang Malaysia ni turut meliputi Sabah/Sarawak.

Jika Sabah/Sarawak tarik diri, baki jumlah kerusi BN akan diatasi oleh HARAPAN. Najib tak akan benarkan ini berlaku. Lebih baik dia bentuk kerajaan "minoriti" 100 kerusi dan biarkan keadaan PAS seperti sekarang yang sekadar melukut di tepi gantang pada kaki Najib. Kesimpulannya, PAS dah lama mati. Hj Hadi sekarang ni selalu mengigau macam mayat hidup. - Abd Hadi Mohamad 

Malay tsunami: Will it happen?...

It has been asked before, but since Pakatan Harapan has got their PM candidate issue sorted out (despite rumblings within the coalition and outside), it's time to ask it again. The term, Malay tsunami, was first coined by DAP strategist Lim Chin Tong back in 2015. Suggesting or rather predicting a change in the Malay voting "pattern" in Umno-held seats come GE14, a tidal wave of support for the opposition. Umno was quick to dismiss it.

Naturally. Some analysts also felt it would not happen, citing "subsidy mentality" and "politics of patronage" in rural areas as reasons. This despite conceding inroads made by the opposition into rural areas, home to majority of Malay voters, as well as impact of former PM Tun Mahathir who is now leading the opposition onslaught. And they had held on to that belief as late as last September. But, do they feel the same now, with situation overtaking events and taking into account the notion even a week is a long time in politics?

First, a quick look at the definition of tsunami, the actual or real tsunami and not the political one as being discussed. To put it briefly, tsunamis are giant waves caused by earthquakes or volcanic eruptions under the sea, meaning there must be an earthquake first, or an earthquake needs to take place before a tsunami is triggered. The same applies to the so-called political tsunami or in this case, a Malay tsunami. There must be a volcanic eruption of sorts for it to happen. 



Pro-opposition folks would say or see the Felda scandal as one of the volcanic eruptions to trigger a Malay tsunami that will sweep Umno and the BN away in GE14. Felda settlers are predominantly Malay. As we know, most of them have all along voted for Umno, but this time they are said to be ready to turn their backs on Umno feeling betrayed by Felda which has become, in the words of Chef Wan, "failed dah".

But it's not only Felda. Pro-opposition folks also point to Felcra, which according to an old journalist friend of mine Terence Fernandez in his column in Malay Mail Online, "has been queried over a series of questionable investments", including spending RM687 million to bail out its headquarters construction project.

Fernandez also pointed to Mara which "overpaid some RM60 million to an offshore company for property in Australia", a transaction facilitated by Mara officials. All the above agencies have a moral duty towards the Malays. Needless to say they were set up to help the Malays, particularly those in rural areas. And now they are said to be angry with the powers that be (read Umno).

Then there's the unhappiness over rice prices. As we know, majority of padi growers are Malays. On top of that, we have the high cost of living, retrenchment etc. In a nutshell, economic woes. And Malays, rural or urban, are the ones most affected. The community is also said to be angry with alleged corruption which they see as the cause of the scandals faced by the nation. Be it 1MDB,Felda and what have you. All that say opposition supporters will trigger off a Malay tsunami.

No, say Umno. All the issues which are incurring the wrath of the Malays are "being looked into". They say actions will be or have been taken, citing the investigations into the Jalan Semarak Felda fiasco as example. And then there is BR1M for the poor and special payments to civil servants and pensioners to ease their economic burden. And we know who make up the most number of civil servants and pensioners.



So, are all that enough to prevent a Malay tsunami? Not really. If one is to talk to many a member of the Malay community. Still, Umno has another card up their sleeves, the race and religion's which they have been using time and again. But, will it work again? Maybe not in the urban areas, but whether it will happen in the rural areas is hard to tell.

However, many an Umno operative would silently agree that Mahathir is "allowing himself to become a puppet of DAP" is something hard to sell to the Malays, rural or urban. Obviously, Umno is banking on PAS to help them win Malay support. Najib might be keen on an Umno-PAS cooperation; so might Hadi Awang, but not everyone in their parties!

Take Kelantan for instance. It is a different story. Kelantan Umno is seeing itself in the best position to wrest the state which they lost to PAS since 1990. So, a cooperation with PAS in Kelantan at this junction is not enticing. Incidentally, political observers say there are factions in PAS not in favor of a cooperation with Umno despite Hadi's willingness.

Come to think about it. Perhaps it is Umno itself that needs a Malay tsunami in its favor? Hence the cooperation with PAS, considering that Umno is said to have resigned to the fact non-Malay voters are not with them.

Back to the big question: Will a Malay tsunami happen? As the term was first thought by a strategist from DAP, it is only fair to ask whether the Malay tsunami will happen in favor of the opposition. But with all the intrigues in the current political scenario, it is best for the opposition to talk about getting a major swing instead of the word tsunami.- Mohsin Abdullah,mysinchew 

Dr Mr's Candidacy Strengthens Ringgit, 
KLSE Moves Up...

Its been about a week since the announcement that Tun Dr Mahathir shall be  the Pakatan Harapan's candidate for Prime Minister.  Other than that initial hick up from Selangor PKR, the choice of Dr Mahathir has now begun to sunk in. The markets are reacting already.

Actually the market has already been speculating for a few weeks now that Dr Mahathir shall indeed be the PM candidate for the PH.

The Ringgit has been strengthening and the confirmation of Tun Dr Mahathir has only added more strength to the Ringgit. The Stock Market is also reacting positively to the news. 


The Western media and Wall Street (New York Times) have also picked up on the news.


The markets are reacting positively.  I believe as we move closer to the Polls, the KLSE will move up even higher and the Ringgit will also strengthen.  The market expects the BN to lose the elections.

Something else is crystallising.  Hundreds of thousands if not millions of Malays who want to see Najib gone were uncertain about voting for a coalition without a leader they could trust. Anwar Ibrahim is out of the question and neither is Hadi Awang.  

The selection of Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamed puts to rest all these fears.  More than the required 2% (TWO PERCENT) swing in the Malay votes in favour of the PH is now a very realistic scenario.  I believe more than 2% of the Malay vote will swing away from UMNO/BN.

There are more surprises in store.  Happy Chinese New Year. Gong Xi Fa Cai. - ostb
