“When you're left wounded on Afganistan's plains and
the women come out to cut up what remains, Just roll to your rifle
and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier”
General Douglas MacArthur"
“We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”
“It is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.” “Old soldiers never die; they just fade away.
“The soldier, above all other people, prays for peace, for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.”
“May God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .” “The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.
“Nobody ever defended, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died. Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
The Soldier stood and faced God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as bright as his brass
"Step forward you Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?"
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't
Because those of us who carry guns
Can't always be a saint."
I've had to work on Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,
The Soldier squared his shoulders and said
And I never passed a cry for help
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, you Soldier,
You've borne your burden well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."
Robert Spencer : Trump wasn’t working for Russia, but it’s hard to find anyone in D.C. who isn’t.
On Saturday, the FBI arrested one of its own. Charles McGonigal, who
used to head counterintel for the Bureau in New York and investigated
Trump over Russiagate, was busted at JFK Airport and has been charged
with violating the sanctions placed on Oleg Deripaska.
These were Putin's Bitches along with the Democrats
Deripaska, a Russian oligarch allied with Putin, has his name
scrawled on parts of Russiagate. Before Christopher Steele was brought
on board to produce the infamous dossier aimed at Trump, the British
ex-agent had been working on a project for Deripaska to go after Paul
Manafort, Trump’s former campaign manager, who would also prove to be an
In the tangled relationship that is an apt metaphor for Russiagate,
the Russian billionaire appeared at times to be an FBI asset and at
other times employed FBI personnel.
McGonigal is reportedly one of a number of ex-FBI agents who became
freelance consultants, like American versions of Steele, under
investigation. And connections between ex-FBI officials and the Russians
have gone even higher than McGonigal. Louis Freeh, Bill Clinton’s
former FBI director, represented a number of Russian oligarchs and his
deceased predecessor, Director William Sessions worked for a top Russian
mafia figure linked to Putin.
We may very well find that the retired FBI officials who haven’t
gotten contracts as commentators for cable news have gone to work for
the Russians. And McGonigal may be the first of a number of FBI figures
who were tasked with fighting Russian influence who instead learned
enough to go to work for the Russians.
If McGonigal is guilty, it’s because he was following in the
footsteps of retired FBI directors and top elected officials. Deripaska
had previously managed to purchase the services of former Senate
Majority Leader Bob Dole to “persuade U.S. officials his client isn’t a
criminal” and of a firm linked to Hillary’s communications director and
Bill Clinton’s deputy press secretary. When you can buy both sides of
the 1996 presidential election, why quibble at a mere FBI official?
Russia may be a mafia state, but unfortunately we’ve become one too.
A long list of American political elites had taken Deripaska’s money.
And the FBI had been corrupted into serving the political interests of
that elite rather than protecting the homeland.
When it came to Deripaska, the FBI’s priorities were helping Hillary Clinton win an election.
Even while Deripaska was suspected of, according to theNew York Times,
“extortion, bribery and even murder”, he was able to spend time in New
York while the FBI tried to solicit information from him about Trump’s
Russian connections. Instead of ‘flipping’ Deripaska, the Russian
oligarch allegedly flipped the head of FBI counterintelligence
operations in New York who would have likely led efforts to gain
information from him on Trump.
Deripaska had apparently employed quite a few former government officials like Jonathan Winer, a former top Kerry aide, who lobbied for the Russian oligarch and who also promoted the Steele
dossier. The Russian oligarch claims to be the victim in all this. As
does Igor Danchenko: the alleged source for much of the Steele dossier
and the subject of a failed prosecution effort by Special Counsel
Durham. And yet even defenders of the Steele dossier have been forced to
argue that it was ‘tainted’ by Russian intelligence. And that means the
FBI was tainted too.
But the FBI was tainted as a secondary effect of being politicized by tainted figures.
The Clintons, who had initiated Russiagate, as usual had led the way.
In 2009, Hillary Clinton arrived bearing a ‘Reset Button’. The button,
pilfered from a hotel swimming pool, was meant to symbolize the desire
of the Obama administration for a new relationship with Russia. All it
really symbolized was that the Clintons, like the Russians, would steal
anything that wasn’t nailed down. And the real relationship launched
with that button was between Russia and the Clintons.
This was the same year that Deripaska hired a firm tied to the
Clintons. The head of that firm, who would also work for the Russian
foreign ministry, would later show up working with Steele and a Justice
Department official involved in Russiagate to help the Russian oligarch.
In 2010, a Russian investment bank paid Bill Clinton $500,000 to
deliver a speech and Putin called to offer his personal appreciation.
Meanwhile the Russians were slowly swallowing Uranium One while
investors wrote their checks to the Clinton Foundation. Hillary Clinton,
who would later reinvent herself as a hawk, conveniently opposed
sanctions on Russia.
In 2015, McGonigal was CC’d on a briefing given
by the FBI to the Clinton campaign warning that the Bureau had
information that a foreign government was “attempting to influence
Hillary Clinton through lobbying and campaign contributions”. Rather
than investigating potential criminal activity and national security
violations by the Clintons, the FBI instead gave them a ‘heads up’ that
there was suspicious behavior taking place.
McGonigal had been working on Russian counterintelligence matters
since at least the 90s. He had close ties to former FBI Director James
Comey. When Trump fired Comey, McGonigal, speaking in an official
capacity, called him “one of the most loved leaders that we’ve had” and
stated that “many of us who were nominated for leadership positions by
him will forever hold him in esteem as we progress through our FBI
Comey, along with other FBI figures, had signed off on Hillary
Clinton’s actions. And there was every reason to believe that the
Clintons were the ones who were actually tied to Russia.
Russiagate was a masterstroke that took one of Hillary’s greatest
legal vulnerabilities and turned it around so that the country has spent
the last six years debating Trump’s ties to Russia while at the same
time justifying illegal surveillance and prosecution of her opponent’s
But that victory was ultimately pyrrhic. Hillary still lost the
election and her corruption, like that of the Biden family, provided an
opening for foreign countries looking to buy influence in America.
Beginning with the Clinton era, a generation of FBI officials have
alternated between working for the Clintons and the Russians while
compromising our national security and domestic politics.
A corrupted FBI leadership did the dirty work of the Clintons, who
were looking to redirect the blame for their Russian ties, and then in
some cases decided to cut out the middleman by working directly for the
In Washington D.C., retired generals go to work for defense
contractors, retired IRS officials teach corporations how to avoid
paying taxes and retired FBI officials go to work for the Russians. And
aspiring presidents, like Hillary Clinton and Joe Biden, open nonprofits
that allow them to legally take cash from foreign countries while
prepping their future administrations.
FBI officials are just copying what they’ve seen top elected officials get away with doing.
Russiagate and what happened to the FBI can’t be understood apart
from the routine corruption of a city whose public servants work for the
government in order to trade on that knowledge. The grand hypocrisy of
Russiagate was that this corrupt political class used its Russian and
international connections to smear Trump with their own crimes.
wasn’t working for Moscow, but sometimes it seems as if it’s hard to
find anyone in Washington D.C. who isn’t.

Hamas-linked Islamist group CAIR asks USA to stop using the term ‘terrorist watchlist’ because it comprises of mostly Muslim names
The Islamist organisation, that obtained the list, claimed it featured
primarily Muslim and Arab names and accused the FBI of deliberately
targeting the Muslim community. The Council for American Islamic Relations (CAIR), a US-based Islamist
organisation with ties to the Islamic terrorist organisation Hamas,
called on the US government on Tuesday to discontinue the use of the
term “terrorist watchlist,” since it is made up “almost entirely” of
Arab and Muslim names. ( Aren't they who were the Sept 11 attackers? )
“This list confirms what we already knew: after 9/11, the FBI created
a Muslim registry. If the FBI is allowed to keep this discriminatory,
unjust registry, it’s only a matter of time before others are targeted
as well,” the Islamist organisation with terror links wrote in a thread
of tweets, accusing the Joe Biden administration of anti-Muslim bias.
“The FBI distributes this registry to tens of thousands of law
enforcement agencies, hundreds of private companies, & 60+ foreign
governments. We call on the Biden admin to end its dissemination. It has
served no purpose other than to ruin the lives of innocent Muslims,”
CAIR wrote in its subsequent tweet.
It also shared a link to its press release titled,
“CAIR Urges FBI to Stop Distributing Secret Terror Watchlists After
Leaks Show ‘Almost Entirely Lists of Arabic and Muslim Names’.
The demand came after a Swiss hacker, on January 20, Friday,
reportedly gained access to copies of the No-Fly List and Selectee List.
These two lists are subdivisions of the US security agency FBI’s terror
watchlist and the Terrorist Screening Data Set. The list, which was
from 2019, contained about 1.5 million entries.
The Islamist organisation, that obtained the list, claimed it
featured primarily Muslim and Arab names and accused the FBI of
deliberately targeting the Muslim community.
“Even a cursory review of the lists shows they are both almost
entirely lists of Arabic and Muslim names. Children who were at most 10
years old at the time are on the No-Fly List. A then 7-year-old is on
the Selectee list,” Justin Sadowsky, Cair’s trial attorney, said in a statement.
CAIR and its anti-India propaganda
Notably, CAIR identifies itself as a Muslim civil rights organisation
in the United States that claims to protect ‘civil rights, enhance
understanding of Islam, promote justice, and empower American Muslims’,
The fact, however, is that CAIR is an Islamist group that has spoken
against India and Hindus on several occasions. The organization has been
vehemently pushing Hinduphobia and anti-Hindu propaganda in India.

Prosecutor: After killing 8 on bike path, Muslim motorist was happy
NEW YORK (AP) — The man who killed eight people on a Manhattan bike
path five years ago in a bid to impress a terrorist group was happy and
proud when he met FBI agents later that day, a prosecutor told jurors in
a closing argument on Tuesday.
Assistant U.S. Attorney Jason
Richman said Sayfullo Saipov was smiling when he asked to hang the flag
of the Islamic State group in his Manhattan hospital room after the Oct. 31, 2017 attack he carried out with a speeding rental truck.
34, steered the truck onto a bike path along the Hudson River and the
West Side Highway that is popular with tourists and Manhattan residents,
mowing down bike riders.
Richman urged jurors to convict Saipov
of all charges in a case that could result in the death penalty. If the
jury returns a guilty verdict on all charges after starting
deliberations Wednesday, a penalty phase of the trial will begin a week
later. Unless jurors unanimously choose death, the sentence would be
life in prison.
Individuals who were injured or lost loved ones at the hands of the Uzbek man were among those who testified during the trial. “He
targeted his victims without mercy,” Richman said. That night, the
prosecutor added, “he smiled. He was proud. He was happy with what he
had done that day. He was happy about the terrorist attack ... He had
done what he came to do.”

Revolutionary with a Heart for the Common Man! By James Ritchie
Tun Ahmad Zaidi
If my father were alive today, he would be exactly108 years old!
A posthumous child of a 1st World War Scotsman and Thai-Chinese mother, Johnny Ritchie was Malaysia’s first local Sarawak constabulary Commissioner.
Malaysian Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman had sent my father to Kuching and told him: “John, keep an eye on Ahmad Zaidi who is a key person ….”
The Tengku had good reason to make this remark because Zaidi, Malaysia’s most sought-after anti-Malaysia politician, was on the run.
Even though Zaidi was the most qualified bumiputera student holding a Masters degree from Robert Gordon Technical College from Aberdeen, he had joined the Indonesian revolution after the first World War.
The adopted son of Wan Adruce and Sharifah Mai, the daughter of the renowned nationalist Sharif Mashor who had been exiled to Singapore, he was a brilliant student.
At the age of five, he studied at the Mandarin-medium Chung Hua Primary school and Abang Ali in Sibu and by 12 had passed his standard seven exams at St Thomas’ in Kuching.
After his Junior Cambridge, the 15-year-old left for the Anglo-Chinese school in Singapore where he was the only Sarawak Malay to pass the Senior Cambridge School Certificate examination.
In 1940 he was sent to Sultan Idris Teachers College in Tanjong Malim where he was among the youngest students.
His adventure started after this; he returned to Japanese-occupied Singapore and was indoctrinated by a Malay nationalist Pahang’s Ibrahim Yakub who was the head of the Malayan Kesatuan Muda Melayu (KMM).
I had the opportunity to pen Tun Ahmad Zaidi Adruce’s memoir-- Son of Sarawak”–the fifth Governor of Sarawak.
My journey to Kuching started in 1967 after I completed my senior Cambridge exams at Sultan Abdul Hamid College in Alor Star.
The submergence of the lost city of Dwarka (a.k.a. Dvaraka) is a well-known legend from India, stemming from the Mahabharata.
Like Atlantis, the story says that Dwarka sank beneath the sea at some point in the ancient past. Some people think this is a historical event that occurred in the early Vedic period. Others say it happened at the end of the ice age. Some think it never happened at all.
In this video, Dr. Miano investigates the claims made by the Ancient Astronaut Archive channel and by Graham Hancock, and looks into the archaeological excavations that have been done in Gujarat to see if there is any truth behind the tale.
Makes me sick at what these people are getting away with in our government!
If the list ever gets leaked, we’ll know exactly why so many politicians and billionaires have worked so hard to cover it up. Makes me very very ill to think what these people have done to children. The lengths they go to, to cover up their crimes, tell you how disgusting their crimes must be. Highest security prison in the US, highest value prisoner in the US, and high value clients have high motive to silence him, but 2 guards just happened to "fall asleep" watching him, the cameras coincidentally were turned off, and no one saw what happened. Yeah, ok.
I'm beginning to understand the violence that the French people visited upon their leaders during the French revolution. It feels like we are headed there in this country.

After abolishing slavery, Britain looked to India to replace the labor on its plantations. The British Empire has since gone to great lengths for history to forget how it created the world’s largest diaspora.
This is the history of Fijians of Indian descent. Prospective workers were told of the riches that awaited them in Fiji. Some were told that Fiji was part of India, or near India, that the nature of work varied, and that they could return in five years laden with fortune.
Recruits were produced before the local maamledaar (magistrates) who witnessed the signing of the indenture contract (as most were illiterate, they could not understand the terms under which they would be employed). The labourers were then taken to the sub-depots where they joined others for the journey ahead.
Many soon realised that their freedom was lost. None could escape. Those who resisted were kept in isolation without food or intimidated into submission.
I am from India. My great great grandfather was an indentured servant. He was shipped from one place to another and strangely ended up in a Texas cotton field working for over half his lifetime, some of his friends dying and being imprisoned there for life. He was lucky enough to come back, but all his hair was white by the time.
Anwar's Malaysia Madani skeleton needs fleshing out By P Gunasegaram
Malaysiakini : COMMENT | Given the previous
failures of all prominent slogans, Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim’s
“Malaysia Madani” one is perhaps ill-advised but let’s also look at how
it can succeed even as all others have failed.
From the time of
independence in 1957, we have been a sloganeering nation but truth be
told hardly anything has come out of it. In the last 40 years, slogans
have come and gone but like trains to nowhere, it has not taken us
Former premier Dr Mahathir Mohamad started his first term in 1981 with the “Bersih, cekap dan amanah”
(clean, efficient and trustworthy) catch-phrase but his administration
over 22 years was hardly that and quite the contrary, taking the
administration to new lows over the three words, lows from which we are
still trying hard to recover from.

translated loosely as civilisational Islam, using the precepts of the

IndigoCamel7131 : A bunch of corrupt PAS Lebai’s should go to Sweden to learn how to live a life that is void of racism, hypocrisy and corruption. The local Lebai’s cannot even follow what is written in the Quran but their speech n lifestyle brings shame to their own faith.

"It's a very well-known fact that if you have a Bible at customs when you enter the airport, and if they find the Bible, that the Bible is taken and put in the shredder." "If you have more than one Bible you will be taken into custody and if you have a quantity of Bibles you will be given 70 lashes for sure - you could even be executed."
Another witness, a friend of his, a fellow Christian in Saudi Arabia, reported about a Catholic nun, who was in a transit lounge at the airport in Jeddah - the gateway to Mecca, used by millions of Hajj pilgrims each year - when at a custom desk she experienced an ungracious incident.
"They opened her bag, went through her prayer book, put the prayer book through the shredder ... took the crucifix off her neck and smashed it, tormented her for many minutes."
Finally, another Muslim official protested about the behaviour of the custom officials, pointing out that she was not entering the country but only in transit and would be leaving on the next plane.
Evangelical Pastor Nalliah, whilst in Saudi Arabia, was deeply involved with the underground church and on behalf of the believers, possessed hundreds of Bibles that had been smuggled into the country.
One morning, he had a close call when armed members of the notorious Committee for the Propagation of Virtue and the Prevention of Vice - the religious police, or muttawa - hammered at his front door at 1am, he reported.
Having 400 smuggled Bibles in his room, he said, "That was a crime equal to rape, murder, armed robbery, and in Saudi Arabia you get the same punishment," - the death penalty.
Nalliah said he had earnestly prayed and the men left without entering his home, and described it as a miracle.
Furthermore, Nagi Kheir, spokesman for the American Coptic Association and a veteran campaigner for religious freedom in the Middle East, wrote in an article several years ago that some Christians upon entering Saudi Arabia reported that they have had their personal Bibles taken from them and placed into a paper shredder.
The reports were backed up by International Christian Concern in a 2001 report.
In its most recent report on religious freedom around the world, the State Department said, "Customs officials routinely open mail and shipments to search for contraband, including...non-Muslim materials, such as Bibles and religious videotapes," it said. "Such materials are subject to confiscation, although rules appear to be applied arbitrarily."
In addition, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, an independent watchdog set up under the 1998 International Religious Freedom Act, in a 2003 report on Saudi Arabia said: "Customs officials regularly confiscate Bibles and other religious material when Christian foreign workers arrive at the airport from their home countries initially or return from a vacation."
Inquiries sent to the Saudi Embassy in Washington and the Saudi Information Ministry in Riyadh, about the legality of Bibles and about the shredder claims have not been answered. Christian Today.
Defamation suit: I was only inviting Tuan Ibrahim to explain tender claims - By Rafizi Hidir Reduan Abdul Rashid
Malaysiakini : Rafizi Ramli has claimed that he was merely inviting then environment
and water minister Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man for an explanation over the
alleged approval of an RM2 billion project which was granted after
Parliament was dissolved late last year.
The economy minister states this in his statement of defence against the PAS deputy president’s defamation suit. The defence was filed at the Kuala Lumpur High Court on Dec 28 last year.
The civil action was filed in November last year, following the PKR deputy president’s allegations
that the caretaker government, through the now defunct Environment and
Water Ministry, had tried to bulldoze the awarding of contracts worth
billions for purported cronies.
According to the defence sighted by Malaysiakini, Rafizi (above, right)
denied his statements - made during two press conferences at PKR
headquarters at Petaling Jaya, Selangor, on Nov 7 and 9 last year - were
defamatory or done in malice.
mosquitobrain : It's insane for the Environment minister to classify the RM2b exposure of wrong doing as malicious. The Islamic party and the lebais need to build up their war chest for GE15. It's an open secret the green lalang party, is throwing RM to fish for votes claimed as 'charity' by it's party president.
Pakistan: Muslims murder ‘filthy Christian,’ threaten to murder his family if they go to police
Robert Spencer : Here is yet another in an apparently endless string of news items that
the Western establishment media will ignore because it doesn’t fit their
Muslims-are-always-victims narrative. “Christian Guava farmer killed by Muslim gang for stopping fruit theft and destruction,” British Asian Christian Association, January 17, 2023 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
Early in the morning, on 11th January 2023, Allah Ditta
(55 yrs) began tending to his small guava farm in Okara Pakistan, which
he has leased from Muslim owners for a year.
Around 2pm three Muslim men entered the farm and began destroying
guava fruit on the farm. The culprits Usama, Intizar and Muhammad Awais
began plucking, tasting and throwing away unwanted fruit while they
digested the best produce. They also began trampling on fruit they did
not like, laughing and joking as they left their destruction in the well
kept guava orchard. The three men were known to the Christian family
because they had undertaken such theft and vandalism before, they were
from wealthy Muslim families and looked down on Christians and often
treated them harshly.
Allah Ditta along with his son Shahbaz Masih (30 yrs) at the time
were undertaking some routine care of their trees. Allah Ditta walked
across to the loud, loutish men and asked them not to waste away his
fruits, explaining they were owned by him, and that the fruit was not
ripe anyway as it was winter season.
On being approached by Allah Ditta the men became enraged, Intizar began verbally abusing Allah Ditta, he shouted:
“Your a Choora (filthy Chrristian)! “How dare you prohibit us from taking fruit from this farm!” “Grab him and kill him”
Usama then pulled out a pistol from the small of his back and shot
Allah Ditta in the chest. The culprits then shouted out to Shahbaz that
if he told the police about what happened that he and his family would
be killed. The men then ran away laughing and destroying more fruit as
they exited the crime scene.
Shahbaz who was tending to the trees some distance away ran towards
his father after watching Usama pull out a gun and hearing the bang of
the gun shot. When he arrived by his father’s side, there was a large
amount of blood on the floor, and all over Allah Ditta’s clothes. Allah
Ditta was not moving and he feared the worse.
Shahbaz told us that he began to weep inconsolably, he called out to
his father but was getting no response. He called emergency services
using the 911 service and requested emergency medical support. he then
called the Police emergency hotline on 15 and requested help describing
the shooting incident.
The medical rescue team arrived in minutes but on investigation they
gave the worst diagnosis for Shahbaz, explaining that his father was
dead. Police arrived 20 minutes later and investigated the crime
scene. After police had completed their investigation, Allah Ditta’s

All three culprits belong to wealthy families and have strong
political connections. The father of Osama is a retired army officer and
he has already approached the family of Allah Ditta, offering apologies
for his son’s behaviour. He offered Soobedar Masih, 500,000 Rs (1757
Pounds) as compensatory bribe for the loss of the family’s patriarch.
The family of Allah Ditta have unanimously and outrightly refused his
bribe. However, the powerful position of the father of Usama places
them all in great danger and the family have asked for some protection.
A Muslim neighbour, Muhammad Abdul Ghufar, spoke with British Asian Christian Association, he said: “Allah Ditta was a very noble person. “He was the main bread-winner for his family, a great father and wonderful neighbour.

Pakistan: Qur’an-burning in Sweden ‘hurts the religious sensitivities of over 1.5 billion Muslims around the world’ By Robert Spencer
Robert Spencer : Note that all the countries that are lamenting this act of alleged “hate
and extremism” never say a word about Islamic jihad violence as “hate
Their outrage over this is all in service of the
longterm goal of intimidating the West into discarding the freedom of
expression and adopting Sharia blasphemy restrictions. “‘Over 1.5 billion Muslims hurt’: Reaction to Quran desecration in Sweden,” TRT World, January 21, 2023:
Muslim world has erupted in anger and alarm after Sweden
allowed a far-right racist politician Rasmus Paludan to burn a copy of
the Muslim Holy book Quran in front of the Turkish embassy building in
Here are some of the first reactions:
“We condemn in the strongest possible terms the vile attack on our
holy book, the Quran, in Sweden today (21 January), despite our repeated
warnings earlier,” a Turkish Foreign Ministry statement said.
Calling the act “an outright hate crime,” the ministry said:
“Permitting this anti-Islam act, which targets Muslims and insults our
sacred values, under the guise of freedom of expression is completely
unacceptable.” “This despicable act is yet another example of the alarming level
that Islamophobia and, racist and discriminatory movements have reached
“This senseless and provocative Islamophobic act hurts the religious
sensitivities of over 1.5 billion Muslims around the world,” said a
statement from the Pakistani Foreign Ministry.
Such actions are “not covered under any legitimate expression of the
right to freedom of expression or opinion, which carries
responsibilities under international human rights law, such as the
obligation not to carry out hate speech and incite people to violence.”
“Pakistan’s concerns are being conveyed to the authorities in Sweden.
We urge them to be mindful of the sentiments of the people of Pakistan
and the Muslims worldwide and take steps to prevent Islamophobic acts,”
the statement added.
The incident “hurts Muslims’ sentiments across the world and marks
serious provocation,” Kuwaiti Foreign Minister Sheikh Salem Abdullah Al
Jaber Al Sabah said in statements cited by the state news agency KUNA.
He called on the international community “to shoulder responsibility
by stopping such unacceptable acts and denouncing all forms of hatred
and extremism and brining the perpetrators to accountability.”…
Qatar condemned the Swedish authorities’ permission to burn the Holy
Quran and call on the international community to shoulder its
responsibilities to reject hatred and violence.
Calling it an attempt to stoke hatred and violence against Muslims,
Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanaani said some European
countries under the false pretext of advocating freedom of speech “allow
extremist and radical elements to spread hatred against Islamic
sanctities and values”.
Kanaani said despite the strong emphasis on human rights in Islam,
Europeans continue to “institutionalise anti-Islamism and Islamophobia”
in their societies.
He added that the desecration of the Quran is a “clear example of
spreading hatred and fueling violence against Muslims”, which has
“nothing to do with freedom of speech and thought”….
Egypt expressed its strong condemnation of the disgraceful act that
provokes the feelings of hundreds of millions of Muslims around the
Egypt warned of the dangers of the spread of such acts that offend
religions and fuel hate speech and violence, calling for upholding the
values of tolerance and peaceful coexistence and preventing offense to
all religions and their sanctities through such extremist practices that
contradict the values of respect for religion.
Organization of Islamic Cooperation
The Organization of Islamic Cooperation bloc said the “provocative
action… targets Muslims, insults their sacred values, and serves as
further example of the alarming level reached by Islamophobia” and asked
Sweden to punish those behind a “hate crime”.
MOE: Segregation in SPM workshop to avoid disrupting CNY celebration - Do you believe this Bullshit excuse after experiencing so much of Apartheid?
Malaysiakini : The Education Ministry has denied that an overnight SPM workshop in
Johor recently was discriminatory after it was alleged that only Muslim
students were invited to take part.
Instead, the ministry said the
workshop held at a hotel in Johor Bahru had been split into two
separate sessions to avoid disturbing SPM candidates from the SMK Infant
Jesus Convent who were celebrating the Chinese New Year. The
workshop had caused a stir on social media after it was alleged that
non-Muslim students at the all-girls school were intentionally left out
of the programme.
In a statement responding to the controversy, the Education Ministry said the workshop was meant for all races. However, the ministry's explanation does not match a purported
explanation by the school's headmaster as was shared by social media.
user Anne Louis, who brought the matter to light, claimed initially
that the workshop was held just for Muslim students under the guise of
it only covering Islamic Studies. She alleged it was only
discovered later that other SPM subjects, such as Chemistry and
Additional Mathematics, were also covered in the workshop.
said disgruntled parents in the PTA then confronted the headmaster on
WhatsApp, and were allegedly told in response that as a high-performing
school, an intervention was needed to help some 40 Malay students who
were at risk of failing their SPM examinations. There was no mention of a second workshop for non-Malay students being
held, or that the workshop would be split into two sessions to avoid
disturbing students who were celebrating Chinese New Year.
‘Injustice will sow discontent’
Prior to the
Education Ministry's explanation on the matter, Pasir Gudang MP Hassan
Abdul Karim said that the alleged actions of the school of denying
non-Muslims to attend the workshop contradicted the principles of ihsan (compassion) and justice in Madani Malaysia.
just an ordinary guy : The way MOE handled this situation reeks of incompetence. You can’t just lie your way out of this. There are documented WhatsApp conversations. Anwar, are you sure the education and home ministers are qualified for their jobs? They seem to be out of their depth in crisis management.
MS : Lying comes so easily to this lot.
Remember 1MDB and the Arab donation fairy tale? More recently, remember seeing "bribe" dressed up as "charity"?
Anyway this is reformasi in action with a ABIM acolyte leading the charge.
Expect more from where this came from. Saudara Al Madani's only regret is that this blatant segregation has been exposed.
Shame on you Fahmi Fadzil, Rafizi Ramli, Mat Sabu, Saifudin Nasution and the lot who deceived gullible Malaysians into thinking that Keadilan means justice.
New beginning : MOE doing damage control by lying! This incident must be thoroughly investigated. If found to be true, the racist headmaster must be removed from the job. He/she is sowing a dangerous elements of racism in school where student are suppose to be taught the spirit of Masyarakat Madani
MS : "The PM should intervene ?" The PM is behind this. His proxy is the ABIM Representative posing as Minister of Education.
IndigoHare5387 : Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek, this is the second time you and your ministry have spoken up so fast in apparent defence of teachers and the system that be.
First, issuing statements ASAP shouldn't be your modus operandi.
Instead issuing statements that heed or at least consider the perspective all stakeholders, i.e., parent groups, teachers, students etc, should be the way to go.
Second, you have been elected under the banner of 'Reformsi', so where are your efforts of taking genuine strides at dismantling and reconstructing our dying education system?
The fact that many netizens are already decrying elements of racism here - while racism may or may not be true in your eyes Fadhlina, you cannot deny that the fact that many feel this issue stinks of racism speaks volumes about the racism that plagues our system. Have you heard the phrase no smoke without fire?
Are you now going to take the opportunity here to show how serious you are about tackling racism in our education system?
It is now strike two. We are patient but we are watching you. Remember who put you in your place of power: we are of many races and not just one.
MS : Other than the eerie silence from the Palace despite the loud buzz around JB and the disgust openly expressed by Pasir Gudang MP Hassan Abdul Karim, we must also note the "buat ta'tahu" silence from the following DAP champions of justice, transparency and equal treatment for all
Dyana Sofya Mohd Daud
Will they continue their stance of "see no evil, hear no evil" even as the Sheikh and his harem of handpicked ABIMinisters run riot with their indoctrination agenda?
Is this, in their considered opinion, the price non-Malays have to pay for the Sheikh's "unity" with Zahid UltraKirana...and the security of their positions?
Travis Bickle : "The Education Ministry has denied that an overnight SPM workshop in Johor recently was discriminatory"
Education Minister Fadhlina Sidek are you covering up and whitewashing a blatantly racist act?
If you are, then you are complicit in that disgusting racism and shame on you.
Vijay47 : Staring at this issue head-on, one would think it is shameful discrimination against the non-Malays, something that offers Malays an unfair advantage in the examination to come soon. Which of course it is.
But if we take a step back and look at the matter from a wider perspective, we realize that it is a far worse tragedy. Fortunately or otherwise, it is a tragedy for the Malays. Heaped upon them by the Malays.
We are witnessing the continuing destruction of an entire race.
Those who organized the special classes may regard it as a big boon to the Malay students. Far from it. They are actually teaching the Malay students that they are incapable, that they have no ability within themselves to stand up proudly and compete with the other races, that the only way they can survive despite the frenzied waving of ketuanan is through the hand-outs they receive generously and the crutches that have replaced their limbs.
When tickets to the gravy train are freely distributed to them, when they are inculcated with the entitlement mentality right from childhood, such acts carried out in dark of night only smother the huge potential that Malay students have in as much abundance as students of any other race.
The Convent organisers refuse to acknowledge that what they and politicians like them do only serve to destroy the pride of their young.
The even more harmful feature is that cunningly, religion is stirred into the broth.
MS : To the many Anwaristas out there with their heads buried deeply in the sand:
This sickening act of Keadilan steeped discrimination is just a taste of Malaysia Madani and portends what is to come.
When this vile act was first exposed, the ABIM Representative also known as the Minister of Education simply washed her grubby hands off the matter and said it has nothing to do with her and that the State Department of Education will explain.
In her demeanor and tone, there was only shock that the crookedness was exposed, no shame, no regret and no promise of action.
I believe Sheikh Anwar Al Madani will put a twist to this denial of culpability by his handpicked ABIM representative and find a quote from Shakespeare to spin his way out..
HangTuahPJ : Ha Ha Ha Ha. This MOE are jokers. These type of Muslim only midnight sessions issuing out exam questions and answers has been going on for a long time.A Varsity in the same state used to do it.
My niece's room-mates who were Malay muslims informed her after they came back from their midnight sessions at the Varsity Surau and were made to swear that they will not reveal it prior to exam day about 14 years ago. My niece was so heart broken. So dont come and tell us that it was not unintentional.
I guess it has been going on in many varsities for some time except UITM where all the students are Malays. Shameless. Malaysiakini - dont delete my comment. This has to be brought out into the open to rescue this country's education level going further down the drain.
The Education Ministry has DENIED!!! that an overnight SPM workshop in Johor recently was discriminatory after it was alleged that only Muslim students were invited to take part.
THE SO-CALLED EDUCATION MINISTER MUST BE SACKED FOR PROMOTING APARTHEID SYSTEM!!!
The EDUCATION MINISTRY said the workshop held at a hotel ............ to avoid disturbing SPM candidates from the SMK Infant Jesus Convent who were celebrating the Chinese New Year.
The fact that the session was held exactly in the days of eve of CNY speaks volumes of their evil intention!!
Than why are the poor Indians / non-Chinese students not celebrating CNY also discriminated and not invited for the workshop????????????
A shameless blatant lie & outright racism and discrimination against the minorities!!!
THE SO-CALLED EDUCATION MINISTER MUST BE SACKED FOR PROMOTING APARTHEID SYSTEM!!!
60 years of the same old SOS and heinous abuse of human rights and discriminstion promoted even in schools!!
Where is Mr Madani & Rafizi, DAP, Amanah only preaching their crap empty slogan?????!
Vijay47 : As though the very holding of such a secret coaching session were not bad enough, the Ministry of Education’s desperate attempt at painting it white is shameful to the extreme. From whatever conceivable perspective one looks at it, there is simply no justification for the special classes.
Perhaps MoE could clarify the following considerations:
1. If the intent was to “to avoid disruption to candidates who are preparing to celebrate the Chinese New Year” why was it conducted during the CNY holidays in the first place?
2. Even if this reason were accepted, were other non-Chinese students like Indians, East Malaysians, or Eurasians able to attend? Was any student of a race other than Malay included?
3. Were the Chinese students given the option to attend? Wouldn’t that have been a decision for them and their parents to make?
4. Why was the session covertly undertaken in a hotel? Why was it not done openly in the school premises itself? To make sure it remained secret?
5. If Malay was one of the subjects being covered, would it not have been more appropriate for non-Malays also to attend as it can be expected that generally they would be weaker in the subject?
6. If a student had performed poorly throughout the year, of what benefit would a one-day teaching session be? Of course great success could have been achieved had only certain specific questions and their answers been presented.
7. Why were the students who attended apparently asked to take an oath of secrecy?
A Muslim migrant destroys a Nativity scene with a hammer in Calahorra, Spain, is this okay, burning books is NOT okay?
Many reasons, available except if you want to bury your had in the sand. Muslims are allowed to proselytize to others in non Muslim countries but the same is not allowed to Non Muslims to proselytize their faith in Muslim majority countries. They are allowed to shove their faith into your face, you cannot.
Other countries accept them as refugees, how do they respond, they insult and attack the host countries and kill too. Stabbings and be headings are common, using all means and every means possible using vehicles to kill them. Muslims always worry about the backlash that never happens. New Zealand was a rare event, after thousands of attacks against Non Muslims. The Muslim countries always qualify their intolerance. They talk about colonization. Who started it?
On Monday, the Dutch leader of the far-right group, Patriotic Europeans
Against the Islamisation of the West (PEGIDA), destroyed a copy of the
Quran in the Netherlands before setting it on fire. This came days after
a copy of the Quran was burnt in Sweden during the protest against Turkey on January 21. Read it all here.........
‘A Deliberate Plan to Unleash Evil’: The Muslim Persecution of Christians, December 2022. The following are among the murders and abuses Muslims inflicted on Christians throughout the month of December 2022:
Genocidal Jihad against Christians
Turkey: Between November 20-25, 2022, Turkey launched
2,500 attacks—air, mortar, drone, artillery, etc.—several miles deep
into Syria’s northern border. Governed by the Autonomous Administration
of North and East Syria (AANES), this is also where most of the
religious minorities—Christians, Yazidis, and Kurds—that were earlier
persecuted by the Islamic State (“ISIS”) live.
At least 48 people were
killed and dozens wounded. The assault also destroyed or damaged 2,300
civilian homes and buildings, including a children’s hospital, a health
center, an electrical power station, essential oil and gas processing
facilities, critical grain towers, and a major bakery. Lethal Turkish
attacks have continued since, prompting Genocide Watch to issue a Genocide Emergency Alert on December 7, 2022, yet the Muslim world is silent and pretends NOT to hear or see. It is always double standards when it comes to the Muslim world!!
Indonesia: Crocodile finds the body of a drowned child and “returns” it to the search team
Crocodile helped in retrieving body of a child in Indonesia (Image: SS from viral video)
After a search for two days, the team spotted a crocodile with a human body in its mouth. On January 21, a crocodile helped in
recovering the body of a drowned 4-year-old boy, identified as Muhammad
Ziyad Wijaya, in Indonesia. The boy was reported missing for two days.
Reports suggest that the animal approached the search and rescue team
and returned the fully intact body of the boy.
This incident took place in the Jawa Estuary in Kutai Kartanegara,
East Kalimantan. The local authorities had initiated a search and rescue
operation after Mohammed went missing. After a search for two days, the
team spotted a crocodile with a human body in its mouth. It swam close
to the boat of the officers, who then retrieved the body.
During the preliminary examination, the team found no bite marks on
the child’s body, and it was fully intact. The officials said in a
statement that it appeared the crocodile helped retrieve the body. They
said, “Nothing was missing, everything was intact. We think the
crocodile actually aided in the search for the victim.”
Reports suggest that it is unclear what led to the boy’s death or if
the crocodiles in the estuary were involved in the disappearance.
Notably, a similar incident occurred
in 2017 when a 40-year-old man was dragged into the water by a
crocodile. The locals used a “crocodile whisperer” to retrieve the body.
The liberal elites of the globe were left aghast yesterday when New Zealand’s PM Jacinda Ardern announced her resignation. But in Ottawa, the Liberal Party is uneasy and Prime Minister Trudeau is having real difficulties because, if you look closely the two leaders share great similarities.
Rule of the kingdom is reserved for the strong. Five heroes, each with a unique power, head up rival clans struggling for power, clawing their way to the top. Each will kill to protect their dynasty and take the throne.
Happy New Year Of The Rabbit To All My Chinese Relations, Friends and Readers Far And Near - Have A Blast
Tuesday, January 24, 2023
OMPH Church Ipoh Graden
I remember Chinese New Year in Pahang, Ops Campur, moving everday non stop. My Boss at that time was 2Lt Wong Heng Ging, I was attached to his company, my boys were already deployed as I just came back from a course.
Captain Kamal Hashim was the IO, he was giving instructions, once in a while the CO, Lt Col George Edward Simon came on the air and told us to keep up the pace. The distances we covered were great, we even came across "Dead Letter Boxes", where the Communists Terrorists would leave messages for their men.
The aim of this operations was to prevent the Communists from contacting the Min Yuen in the jungles of Pahang, Communists too celebrated Chinese New Year. They needed supplies, such as food, Ma Ling ham and stewed pork and much more, new recruits, medical supplies. The Chinese in my Battalion, Seventh Rangers did NOT celebrate CNY!
That day was the eve of Chinese New Year, we were based up. I was still up at night. All of us were very tired our cams were soaked like as though we had a dip. Of course we did NOT bathe. It was pitch dark in the deep jungles of Pahang. Suddenly I heard the noise of a can being opened, "sssssstup". That was my OC secretively opening a can of Guiness Stout.
"Bloody hell sir, you are drinking that by yourself?" The response was, "Shhh Tambi, don' talk so loud, Chinese New Year la have to celebrate." I was wondering how many cans he had, I asked him he said only two cans, I did not believe him. "Sir, if you do not share with me, I will wake everyone up and tell them you have lots of stouts, you won't get to drink another drop."
Anyway I blackmailed him for two cans. He relented. That was a very memorable Chinese New Year for me. He had 6 cans. Okay fair he lugged them for miles. When we did the infamous Gonzales Lasak from Kampong Bonggor in Gerik to Batu Melintang in Kelantan which was 122 Km by road.
It took us 7 days 7 hours, where we broke the Army record. The distance on the map as the crow flies is 80 clicks. The Infantry is all terrain, we have to cross country, except at the lake in Banding we used the bridge.
2nd Lt Wong Heng Ging was map reading for us at the head of the column, he was bloody efficient, this time he did NOT carry any stouts. I was made to be the sweeper, coming at the rear of battalion column. I reined in 2nd Lt Ivan Lee Synn Leng to keep me company, as it was very lonely at the rear of a 500 men column. Lt Col GE Simon was still commanding.
The head of the column moves at around 0730 hrs while the rear moves at around 1000 hrs. They would normally stop at 1600 hrs. The rear, us, would reach their location around 2000 hrs, stumbling and falling over each other in the pitch dark!!
Why Hookup Culture Is a Sham That’s Making People Miserable: Lauren Chen
They were warned that their ability to pair bond would be destroyed but they didn't want to hear it. Now, and in the future, many are going to pay the price by ending up alone, lonely, and unfulfilled.
Online dating is like digging through garbage trying ro find a small pearl. Young women sleep around, get older, wants to settle down, find a good guy, get married. Problem is, the good guys don't want her when they find out about all her baggage and high body count. People are not meant to be monogamous, when choosing to be, it goes against your nature.
That's why being chosen to be a life mate has meaning.
