No Atheists
In A Foxhole

Rudyard Kipling

" ā€œWhen 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 soldierā€
General Douglas MacArthur

" ā€œWe are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.ā€

ā€œIt is fatal to enter any war without the will to win it.ā€
ā€œOld soldiers never die; they just fade away.
ā€œThe soldier, above all other people, prays for peace,
for he must suffer and be the deepest wounds and scars of war.ā€
ā€œMay God have mercy upon my enemies, because I won't .ā€
ā€œThe object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other bastard die for his.

ā€œNobody ever defended, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
ā€œIt 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."

Despite long goodies list, MP points to falling welfare spending
Friday, October 07, 2022
Wong Chen

Malaysiakini : Despite the long list of goodies announced in Finance Minister Tengku Zafrul Abdul Azizā€™s Budget 2023 speech today, Subang MP Wong Chen highlighted that the government is actually spending less on welfare and subsidies.

Citing the governmentā€™s fiscal outlook for next year, Wong said the government is reducing the budget for subsidies and social assistance from RM58.9 billion this year to RM42 billion next year. This is a reduction of 28.7 percent, or RM16.9 billion.

ā€œThe minister of finance has been reading out a long list of goodies and social support for the last hour or so. The government is trying to create a perception that it cares for the people and will be providing a lot of aid, next year.  ā€œThis perception is not true!ā€ he said in a Twitter post today.

The RM372.3 billion budget is the largest ever proposed by a Malaysian government and will be the last one before the next general election is to be held. Wong (above) panned it as a ā€œbudget for the richā€.

ā€œGovernment tycoons and contractors are probably celebrating. A whopping RM94 billion of government projects are coming in the pipeline next year!

apanama is back : This is why I said this government need to be voted out because they are spending the money like their grandfather's money and as nobody's business. Sure will impose GST after GE15. Mahathir mentioned about UMNO Baru wining the GE15 hands down because they have money to buy vote, He also did that last time. "Buat bodoh" fellow. 450,000 families get RM2.5 billion under welfare department while JAKIM is getting RM1.5 billion. Where is the priority here?

Pakistan: Muslim strips Hindu woman naked, hangs her upside down, beats her, rapes her


Robert Spencer : ā€œIn Pakistan, Muslim landlord strips Hindu woman worker naked, hangs her upside down, beats her, rapes with henchmen,ā€ Firstpost, October 3, 2022 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):

New Delhi: She went to ask for her salary, but this Hindu labourer in Pakistanā€™s Bahwalpur got brutalised by her Muslim landlord, instead. The woman, wife of bonded labourer Gangaram, was hoisted upside down, beaten, gang-raped by six or seven men.

This is yet another instance which stands testimony to the absolutely dismal record of Pakistan when it comes to atrocities against minorities, especially Hindus.

The incident took place at Bhawalpur in Punjabā€™s Pakistan after the woman, Savitri Bai (name changed), went to Muslim landlord Mohammad Akram to ask for wages. Akram later went to the womanā€™s house with weapons and threatened her. He then kidnapped her and she was gang-raped and beaten.

In a video, Savitri Bai said, ā€œHe kidnapped me and took me to an unknown place. Over their they stripped me naked and kept beating me.ā€

She further said that they had covered my face and kept beating me.She added that she had gone there to get wages but ā€œinstead of clearing the dues, they told me that they will thrash me if I ask for money.ā€ Reports say that the accused landlord has been trying to cover up the matter by getting into negotiation with doctors treating the victimā€¦.

Guns and Glory 1999 Indo-Pak War in Kargil Part 1 and 2
In Part 1 on the Kargil War, Guns and Glory sets up the sequence of events as they unfolded in Pakistan and India and why and who the main players were in the making of the conflict.

This show details how the euphoric new beginning of Bus Diplomacy was subverted by the devious plans set in motion by 4 Pakistani Generals. How the Northern Light Infantry were tasked with occupying 132 abandoned Indian posts across the Line of Control and how 3 shepherds first noticed the intrusion.

The show tells the tragic story of Lt. Saurabh Kalia and his abduction and torture by Pakistani forces and it relives the pounding that was unleashed on them when India brought in the Bofors Howitzers. We also look at how the Indian Air Force redefined the waging of Air warfare in the rarified atmosphere of High Mountain regions.

In part 2 of the Kargil War The show draws out the contours of the war as India cleared one hill top after another of the Pakistani intruders.

The implications of the intercepted telephonic conversations, made public, between Gen. Pervez Musharraf and Gen. Md. Aziz. How the Government of India used open media coverage to swing international opinion in its favour and how the Electronic media came of age during the Kargil war.

In this episode we look at the bravery of the Indian soldiers and how they regained Tiger Hill and how the Indian Navy patrolled the Sea coast of Pakistan to cut off supplies and aid coming in from outside.

The show also tells us how mounting losses in battle pressure from the US forced Pakistan to announce a humiliating and unequivocal withdrawal of all Pakistani troops from the heights of Kargil.

Deputy defence minister lodges police report against Rafizi

Malaysiakini : Deputy Defence Minister Ikmal Hisham Abdul Aziz has lodged a police report against PKR deputy president Rafizi Ramli for allegedly slandering him of an RM854 million defence contract controversy.

In a statement, Ikmal (above) said the report was lodged by his senior private secretary Mohammad Iskandar Idris at the Dang Wangi district police headquarters today.

"The report is against an article on Rafizi's Facebook yesterday entitled 'Cancel the intention to reward SPH (self-propelled howitzers) contract to a company tied to a deputy minister's son', which linked my name to a company named MA Analytics Sdn Bhd.

"It is slander and a politically-motivated lie to defame my good name," Ikmal said.

Knucklehead : It is such a simple question Deputy Defence Minister Ikmal Hisham Abdul Aziz, is your son involved in MA Analytics Sdn Bhd in any way? Yes or No? If yes, what slander is that? Sound like fact! Tell us please!!

Court orders cops to hand SOP documents to wife of missing activist By Hidir Reduan Abdul Rashid

Malaysiakini : The wife of social activist Amri Che Mat succeeded in her appeal to access police documents relating to the standard operating procedure (SOP) in investigating his disappearance nearly six years ago.

The Court of Appeal this afternoon allowed Norhayati Mohd Ariffinā€™s appeal, giving the police 14 days from today to hand over to her the SOP documentation in the probe into Amriā€™s disappearance on Nov 14, 2016.

She sought the SOP documents in order to help the Kuala Lumpur High Court ascertain whether the policeā€™s investigation into Amriā€™s disappearance is lawful.

She seeks to use these documents to bolster her main legal action (pending before the High Court) over the policeā€™s alleged failure to conduct a proper investigation into Amriā€™s disappearance.

Not right for PN ministers to send letter on GE15 to Agong ā€“ Umno leader
Ahmad Maslan Nasi Goreng GST

Malaysiakini : Umno secretary-general Ahmad Maslan described the action of 12 ministers from Perikatan Nasional (PN) in sending a letter to the King to express their objection against any move to hold the 15th general election (GE15) this year as inappropriate.

He also claimed the move by Bersatu and PAS ministers indirectly showed they had no confidence in the leadership of Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

"It is not good for the current administration when 12 ministers wrote such a letter instead of resolving the matter in the Cabinet.

ā€œIts (governmentā€™s) legitimacy has been eroded, from 100 percent previously to 60 percent now.

Sealthedeal : Of course it's right with a minority party pushing for GE15 just to save a few corrupt politicians.

GreenLeopard4021 : Get you UMNO PM to sack them immediately and restore some order and discipline as they have sabotaged your plans!

XoXo : UMNO, why don't you move a no confidence vote on PM if you have the numbers? Grow up UMNO and be jantan.

Deep Thought : All the hungry greedy Malay party leaders chasing for PM and form a new govt. They can then continue to steal money and get rich themselves, while the rakyat continue to slave and struggle

Krabian : . . . and this UMNO idiot thinks it's right for UMNO Court cluster to pressure PM Ismail Sabri to seek early election approval from Agong?

Gay Palestinian living under asylum in Israel murdered, beheaded in Hebron By Jack Mukand
Ahmad Abu Murkhiyeh (Social media)

Suspect uploaded footage of murder to social media; unclear how the victim ended up in the West Bank, with some claiming he was kidnappedā€‹.

A gay Palestinian man living under asylum in Israel was murdered and beheaded Wednesday in the West Bank city of Hebron. The unnamed suspect, who was arrested by Palestinian Authority police near the scene of the crime soon after committing it, recorded the act in a video that he uploaded to social media before his capture.

The victim was 25-year-old Ahmad Abu Murkhiyeh, who according to reports on Ynet and Channel 12 had been living in Israel for the past two years as an asylum-seeker after authorities acknowledged his life would be in danger if he returned to Palestinian territory.

It was not immediately clear how or why the young man ended up in Hebron. Friends of Abu Murkhiyeh in Israel alleged he was likely kidnapped to the West Bank before his murder, though it was not clear that they had evidence of this.

Rita Petrenko, founder of Al-Bayt Al-Mukhtalif, a non-profit organization for the empowerment of the Arab LGBT community, said that she had helped to arrange for Abu Murkhiyehā€™s asylum papers in preparation for his eventual resettlement in Canada and that heā€™d actively participated in LGBT discussion groups.

Describing the young man as ā€œhard-working and intelligent,ā€ Petrenko regretted that he had not been transferred to safety in Canada before his life was brutally taken from him.

Kargil War: How Musharraf's Personal Ambition Led To Pakistan's Humiliation?
The Pakis were handed their arses on a platter by the Indians.

The Kargilā€Æconflictā€Æstarted in May 1999 after the infiltration of Pakistani soldiers and irregulars onto theā€ÆIndianā€Æside of the LOC. An old Pakistani army plan ā€“ vetoed in the past by Gen Zia and even Benazir Bhutto - was implemented by General Musharraf and his closest associates.

Their aim was to challenge the sanctity of the Line of Control - the de-facto divide over Jammu & Kashmir since 1972 - projected it as an operation by Mujahideen groups fighting for Kashmirā€™s liberation.

Ku Nan: Harapan binned many BN projects after winning GE14
YellowPanda5939 : 2 million ringgit is pocket money - Fake Tengku

Malaysiakini : Many projects planned by BN prior to the 14th general election were either put on hold or cancelled by Pakatan Harapan after the coalition came to power.
Former federal territories minister Tengku Adnan Mansor has been found guilty in his RM2 million corruption case.

So said Umno secretary Tengku Adnan Tengku Mansor, claiming that Putrajaya - where he is the MP - was one of the places ā€œaffectedā€.

ā€œOne example is the NadiPutra bus initiative that BN took up to solve public transportation woes in Putrajaya. Unfortunately, when BN lost (in GE14), Harapan cancelled the project.

ā€œThey also cancelled many other things that had been well planned by BN, including the housing project for civil servants based in Putrajaya, priced below RM80,000,ā€ Tengku Adnan (above) was quoted saying by Umno Online.

Odd One Out : If they are anything like 1MDB or LCS projects we are lucky they were binned. And why the heck always all the emphasis on 1.3 million civil servants?

One fine day soon Malaysians will realise you idiots have created apartheid between civil servants and ordinary citizens...one has everything including free medical, cheap housing, retirement benefits, all kinds of bonuses and increments and subsidies during the Covid pandemic on top of full pay for no work.....

while ordinary people are left to fend on their own driving Grab and shoplifting Milo to feed their families. You bunch are shameless hypocrites. Malaysia's tragedy is her people cannot see you for what you all are.

Aisyalam : No money la. Have to repay the 1Mdb debts incurred by the previous BN government. Even now the auditors report shows billions taken out from development fund just to pay for interest alone on 1Mdb loans. You guys will just lead the country to bankruptcy faster.

BlueFish0451 : Adnan, I am disappointed that they did not ban the one in TTDI park that you awarded to a tycoon. If built it will destroy the whole nice eco-system and neighbourhood. More should be banned, not enough. We should vote PH back to ban more BN projects.

Thomas' book: Police probing Malaysia Today for leaked investigation report


Malaysiakini : Police have opened an investigation paper regarding the investigation report of former attorney-general Tommy Thomas' memoir 'My Story: Justice in the Wilderness' which was leaked on Malaysia Today.

Bukit Aman secretary Noorsiah Mohd Saaduddin in a statement yesterday said the investigation into the website was conducted in accordance with Section 8 of the Official Secrets Act, Section 203A of the Penal Code and Section 233 of the Communications and Multimedia Act 1998.

The investigation of the case was carried out by the Criminal Investigations Department's Special Investigation Unit after a report regarding the article which was published under the title ā€˜Rahsia: Laporan Siasatan Ke Atas Buku Tommy Thomasā€™ (Classified: Investigation report on Thomasā€™ book), she said.

RZee : The real reason they want to go after Tommy is because he dared to highlight, investigate and charge UMNO so called stalwarts and boss kusā€™ with crime and corruption. It was a pattern of 60 years that needed to be stopped.

Tommy was appointed to do that and was removed by the Sheraton movers to stop that. It didnā€™t work. The crimes have been highlighted. However now that Tommy has been removed, the crimes have restarted. When PH wins another Tommy needs to be the AG.

Aisyalam Let this ā€œbookā€ takes its course so that the can of worms already opened can mature into snakes in the courts. The home of these snakes that will be revealed to the public will be the AGā€™s office where TT formerly resides.

ScallopJilatDedak : So busy persecuting imaginary enemy whilst big corruptors mentioned in ZH, LCS still not probed. PH must win GE15 so that DAP can incharge of KDN and take action to reform this department.

Amanah leader: Malaysia's abstention on Uyghur vote 'shameful'

Malaysiakini : Malaysia's abstention from the vote on the plight of the Uyghur community in Xinjiang, China was "hurtful" and "shameful", said Terengganu Pakatan Harapan head Raja Kamarul Bahrin Shah Raja Ahmad.

He pointed out that Malaysia had once sheltered Uyghur asylum seekers from China but now appears to not care for the community's well-being. "Why is Malaysia no longer concerned about the Uyghur minority who are facing persecution and suffering? Does trade and business take precedence over the suffering of fellow Muslims caused by a major power?

"Malaysia, which is supposed to have a Muslim government, appears to be forsaking the plights of fellow Muslims and favouring business interests with China, the US and Israel," Raja Kamarul Bahrun said in a statement today.   The Amanah leader warned that Malaysia will no longer be relevant on the global stage or among Muslim nations if the country maintains its silence.

Malaysia was among 11 countries which abstained during a vote at the UN Human Rights Council yesterday on a proposal to debate China's treatment of the Uyghur minority.

The proposal was eventually defeated 19 to 17. Somalia was the only Organisation of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) member to vote in favour.

Me : Besarnya Kemaluan!!!!

Uragt : Money trumps religion, China over UN. Malaysia is selective on the religious front, Palestinians over Rohingyas & Uyghurs.

BadCaptain : What about the best model institutionalized apartheid discrimInation in the world practiced by the Muslim Govt in Malaysia? The bottom line is Amanah is only fishing for votes. Put a wealthy Chinese business from China in front of Kamarul Amanah and that Malay politician will lick clean both feet of that foreign investor

MerdekaMerdekaMerdeka : Kamarul, you are asking what is the position of the minister in charge of Islam and the special envoy to the Middle East on this issue? Highly unlikely that you will get a response let alone a relevant one.

Their minds are now preoccupied with the imminent loss of all their gajibutaā€™s, perks, packages, privileges and permit to ride the gravy train again, post GE15, and how or what needs to be devised to continue hanging on. There cannot possibly be any other graver issues than that.

Turnedback : Our Msia Muslim politicians are only good to use religion and race to bully the non Muslim brothers. If no gain or benefits why they want to vote for Uyghur plight.

Kuniyo : They are too busy using 'perpaduan ummah' gimmick to attract votes from kampung and semi urban area, thus no time for what happened outside malaysia.

In fact, they like closed society that doesn't know what happened outside the tempurung, easy to control and manipulate. If UMNO-PAS won big next GE, first thing they will do is shut down internet and mute social media because it is 'immoral''.

GrayPanda9123 : Shameful & Shameless. Only few weks ago PM boastly said Malaysia will not hesitate to speak up on International fronts. This ia one classic example of chickening out. They rather the Uygurs dies than antagonise China. Malu Malu Malu...clever to find fault in western countries.

But the western predominantly Christian countries are the one who speak out & help out the displace & victimised Muslims everywhere. WHo Where is PAS & Umno & PN.... SHame SHame Shame.

MS : Malaysia's abstention on Uyghur vote 'shameful'? No it was a poignant demonstration of the unity of the ummah. Hadi will say so as will all the muftis and imams.

True blue : The special envoy for Middle East is still on holiday with 90 million to enjoy but spread venom against the Nons.

SPH contract: Patriot calls for deputy minister's resignation over alleged cronyism

Malaysiakini : Persatuan Patriot Kebangsaan (Patriot) has called for a deputy minister to resign over an RM854 million military contract to supply self-propelled howitzers (SPH) for the army, which allegedly is in the process of being awarded to a crony company.

In a statement, Patriot president Mohamed Arshad Raji also demanded that Defence Minister Hishammuddin Hussein explain if he was aware of the alleged cronyism. "Was he (the deputy minister) actively involved in securing the contract?

"In all likelihood, he must have been fully aware. After all, as the deputy minister one would expect that he would be responsible enough to check all aspects before dobby marking the deal.

How much does Hisham know?

Arshad wants Hishammuddin to clarify to what extent he is in the know on the matter.

"Patriot further demands from Hishamuddin whether he too was in the dark or was it yet another case of our proverbial 'tutup satu mata' (closing an eye).

Save Malaysia : God bless you with long life mr arshad to see change in our country

Bornean : wait for it.. This fellow will come up with all sort of excuses... They will swear they are damn clean

Krabian : Resign ?? . . . those Putrajaya gaji buta clowns have skin thicker than elephant's skin.

Malaysia abstains in UN vote on China's Muslim Uyghurs - For all the BIG talk about Ummah, Malaysia Chickened Out

Malaysiakini : The 47-member UN Human Rights Council has rejected a motion to hold a debate on alleged human rights abuses by China against Muslim Uyghurs in Xinjiang in an unprecedented victory for Beijing.

The vote - 19 against, 17 in favour, and 11 abstentions, including Malaysia - is only the second time in the council's 16-year history that a motion has been rejected.

The Western-led motion had demanded a debate on the alleged rights abuses against Muslim Uyghurs and other ethnic minorities in China's western Xinjiang region. Co-sponsors for the motion are UK, Turkey, Canada, Sweden, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Australia and Lithuania.

Nations voting against the motion were Bolivia, Cameroon, China, Cuba, Eritrea, Gabon, Indonesia, Ivory Coast, Kazakhstan, Mauritania, Namibia, Nepal, Pakistan, Qatar, Senegal, Sudan, the United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan and Venezuela.

Kuniyo : All the bahasa speaking stunt and shout to defence palestinian and rohingya are just noise to attract votes from kampung. It doesn't matter when it mattered most. Money comes first, cash is king.

Proarte : Arab Palestininan citizens in Israel have equal rights and generally never opt to emigrate to Muslim countries who are quick to attack Israel's human rights record.

Contrast this with the widespread report of over a million Uyghurs who are Chinese citizens being sent to concentration camps to be rehabilitated from the "disease" of Islam and their traditional Uighur culture. There are even allegations of torture and murder.

The hypocrisy of Muslim nations and those economically beholden to China was seen in this recent UN vote. It has given Israel a huge boost because its treatment of Palestinians in the occupied territories will now be swept under the carpet by previously vociferous Muslim nations who voted in favour of China or who abstained.

Next time there is a vote on Israel's human rights record, the votes by Muslim countries against Israel will ring hollow because they betrayed their fellow Muslims in China despite the widespread allegations of anti-Muslim human rights abuses of China's Uyghur citizens.

Dummies Dhimmi : Typical cowardly government. Jump up and down for the Palestinians and the Muslims in Kashmir but in China keep their mouth shut. Its never about the defense of the religion but what you can gain from it by how you make or not make 'noise' about it.

Its either China gave moon cake to Malaysian politicians to gum up their jaws or there's nothing to gain politically by objecting to the ill treatment of the Muslims there.

RedQuokka9442 : Wow, none of the Muslim countries are in support of their brothers when it comes to the crunch. All good in paying lips service when it doesn't hurt...

KSK : Fair Play: >>"Malaysia made the right stand by doing what they did. Make friends, not enemies." Exactly, and to hell with the Uyghurs. Who cares about them? Right?

MazilamaniIt is strange to note that most Muslim majority countries either opposed or abstained from the UN vote for China Muslims(Uyghurs)including Malaysia. It is outrageously strange..

Why is Hadi or PAS not saying much about the plight of Uyghur Muslims, who have suffered much under the Chinese authorities. We have known it for a long time, that these people were rounded up, encamped and detained to undergo ''re-education''.

Even more strange is the fact the motion is being supported by Western Christian nations. When it concerns a country like China, PAS and Hadi remain silent, but why such arrogance with the Nons in Malaysia. So PAS knows who it should not offend.

GrayWhale2704 : Double standard again! Advertisement for Palestinian support everywhere, yet no nerve to cast a vote for debate?! The Muslims in China arenā€™t Muslims?

Kepala Tak Centre : Will PAS, Umno and Islamist go down to Padang Merbok to protest? What is Hadi Awang's stand? Anyhow, Hadi Awang himself can't decide whether to be with BN or PN.

RedGopher0486 : What is the point of sitting in the Human Rights Council if not willing to discharge responsibility without feat or favour.....

Stay Safe : Ok to support stone throwing and rocket shooting Palestinians but no to non-violent Uyghurs... ? Very funny way of practicing their religious jurisprudence ya..!

Quigonbond : Well, at least this time they are consistent with their racist attitudes at home. But Muslims at home, you know what this means about the cynicism of Ummah unity especially PAS.

Tax officer: I wasn't asked to assess RM1m received by Shahrir

Another Umno stalwart has his balls squeezed

Malaysiakini : An officer of the Inland Revenue Board (IRB) told the High Court in Kuala Lumpur yesterday that a MACC investigating officer did not ask him to make an assessment to determine whether a sum of RM1 million allegedly received by former minister Shahrir Ab Samad was regarded as income or not.

Deputy Head of the Celebrity, Public, and Various Entertainers Desk Audit Unit, IRB Assessment Division, Zulkfli Tuan Lah said the investigating officer also did not furnish any documents relating to the receipt of the RM1 million, but merely told him that Shahrir received the money.

The 48-year-old said this when cross-examined by lawyer Syed Faisal Al-Edros Syed Abdullah Al-Edros, who is representing Shahrir (above) in the former Johor Bahru MPā€™s trial on a charge of failing to declare to IRB RM1 million which he received from former prime minister Najib Abdul Razak via an AmIslamic Bank Berhad cheque dated Nov 27, 2013.

Syed Faisal: If we want to determine whether the RM1 million which Shahrir received amounted to income or not, the best way to do it is with a tax assessor like yourself?

Mujaheed : Looks like LHDN is full of umno members, that is why they dont bother to tax the umno leaders

IndigoHorse9495 : Money laundering? Isnt this obvious? If anyone else hefty fine and languishing in jail.These currentso called leaders are just wrecking the nation with their irresponsibilty. Please vote UMNO and its allies out. Save this country from falling into the abyss šŸ™

Boilumaik : Deep State corruption comes with protection

OBSERVER from Space : Indeed! Do IRB need instructions to investigate anyone?? Unbelievable stupidity in the civil service. That's why I left after 5 months in 1984...absolutely right decision. Otherwise I'm amongst the incompetent, dumb, corrupted lot...

Langkawi tourism body laments increasing booking cancellations


Malaysiakini : The Langkawi Tourism Association (LTA) lamented the increasing trend of booking cancellations on the popular tourist island, even during peak holiday periods.

LTA's chief executive Zainudin Kadir said the association has recorded 29 percent cancellations up to Oct 3 for bookings made for the upcoming long weekend, in conjunction with the Maulidur Rasul public holiday on Monday.

"The cancellations involve hotels, chalets and homestays registered under LTA. Most of the cancellations cited difficulties in getting ferry tickets to the island as a reason. "This is the biggest problem affecting the Langkawi tourism industry right now. An issue that needs to be immediately handled by relevant agencies and the government," Zainudin said.

"The people are tired of Langkawi, they choose to go to Cameron Highlands or Hatyai (Thailand) instead, and that's the reality," he told Utusan Malaysia when contacted recently. According to him, the LTA receives an average of 20 complaints daily from its members about the tourism industry on the island.

TRT : So called Free Trade Zone but the prices are cheaper in KL. Name it.

Fair Play : I suppose Pas Government in Kedah do not e courage concerts and tourism when males and females together.

apanama is back : Ask the Langkawi MP to solve this issue. Apa nama Mahathir! If that is the case, Langkawi folks should vote PAS out in coming GE15. If the folks suddenly forget this on voting day, we can't help them much.

Will the hard Right sweep Europe?

Unherd : The rise of the Christian, ultra-conservative candidate Giorgia Meloni in Italy marks a strange split in European politics. Post-Brexit Britain is now in the minority of countries that have not seen a recent Rightward populist uprising.

The French election was disrupted by Marine Le Pen, the Sweden Democrats have ousted the centre-Left from power and Right-wing Vox have gained ground in Spain.

With the cost of living crisis worsening, culture wars raging and sanctions against Russia biting, will more countries fall for what some call ā€˜neo-fascistsā€™? Or will certain parts of the media prove to be exaggerating the threat of hard-Right figures like Giorgia Meloni?

To try and answer these questions, UnHerdā€™s Freddie Sayers sat down with Ralph Schoellhammer, Assistant Professor of Economics at Webster University, Vienna.

Isa Samad's corruption appeal hearing set next March By Hidir Reduan Abdul Rashid

Another UMNO Crook caught red handed with his hands in the till

Malaysiakini : The Court of Appeal has fixed March 7 next year to hear former Felda chairperson Mohd Isa Abdul Samadā€™s appeal to quash his conviction and sentencing in the corruption case linked to the purchase of a hotel in Sarawak.

The appeal courtā€™s registry set the hearing date during online case management this morning for Isaā€™s bid to set aside his guilty verdict over nine graft counts as well as six yearsā€™ jail and an RM15.45 million fine.

Deputy public prosecutor Afzainizam Abdul Aziz, who represented the prosecution who is the respondent in the matter, confirmed the 2023 hearing date when contacted.

ā€œFurther case management before the hearing is on Feb 21, 2023. Parties (were directed by the Court of Appeal) to file their written submissions by Feb 14, 2023,ā€ the prosecutor said.

The corruption case was linked to the purchase of Merdeka Palace Hotel & Suites (MPHS) by Felda Investment Corporation Sdn Bhd (FICSB).

On Feb 3, 2021, then High Court judge Mohd Nazlan Mohd Ghazali ruled that the defence failed to raise reasonable doubt in the prosecutionā€™s case against Isa.

In passing the sentence, the judge said that while the accused has a long-standing contribution to society, it must be emphasized that corruption is serious as it threatens economic growth as well as the sovereignty of the country's law and denies the people from receiving efficient service.

Nazlan ordered Isa to serve an additional 18 years in jail in default of payment of the total fine.

Anonymous_47029368 : To show that the country is really serious in tackling the corruption problem, the government must quickly set up special courts to expedite corruption trials as those thieves and robbers got tonnes of corrupt money to appeal and appeal and keep delay and delay the administration of justice !

Krabian : Dear Hadi Awang, here is one more of your so-called "non Malay non Muslim" corruptor for your database.

Kuniyo : Isa Samad and Khir Toyo are example of how politicitians became irrelevant after they are convicted because Malaysian have short political memory.

Najib is doing his best to stay relevant even he is jailed, thus you see him remained active in facebook, going to hospital, wanted to attend parliament session. He doesn't want to be remembered as convicted corrupted Najib, so he tried to stay active in conversation so people forget what he had done.

TRT : Trying out Najib's hotshot lawyers tricks.

Asyraf: Has the 'PN dozen' turned their backs on PM?

Arshruff Dudsuki

Malaysiakini : An Umno leader has pondered whether Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob still has the support of 12 cabinet ministers from Perikatan Nasional.

This comes after the 12 penned a petition to the Yang di-Pertuan Agong to hold off the next general election until flood season was over. Umno Youth chief Asyraf Wajdi Dusuki raised the question because only the prime minister has the right to advise the Agong on the dissolution of Parliament.

"(Moreover) according to Article 43 of the Federal Constitution, a prime minister who loses support of the majority (MPs) can advise the Agong to dissolve Parliament or tender his resignation.

TRT : Ask Tok Hadi lebai gaji buta on the constituition.

Krabian : This UMNO Youth dude who lost badly in GE13 and GE14 at Tumpat is desperately barking for early election for another bite at power and get on the gravy train again.

MerdekaMerdekaMerdeka : Anything is possible, Asyraf. There is no honor amongst thieves, scoundrels, crooks AND betrayers / traitors.

Till today, Malaysians donā€™t really know if Mahiaddin actually had the numbers, coz way back then when all those traitors USURPED power from PH, he did not heed His Majestyā€™s call for hold a motion of confidence in Parliament (then).

Thereā€™s no honorā€¦. Ask for your UMNO fellas to call for a motion of confidence at the next sitting in Parliament, if that is doubtful. Go ahead UMNO, thatā€™s one way to find out.

Agong revokes emergency proclamation for three vacant constituencies

Malaysiakini : The Yang di-Pertuan Agong yesterday revoked an emergency proclamation in two parliamentary constituencies and one state legislative assembly, in a decision believed to be connected to the 15th general election which is highly speculated to be held soon.

The constituencies are the Batu Sapi parliamentary seat and Bugaya state seat in Sabah, and the Gerik parliamentary seat in Perak. They were placed under a state of emergency following the passing of their incumbent representatives in 2020, when the country was still badly hit by the Covid-19 pandemic.

It was done to halt by-elections during the outbreak, as the Federal and Sabah state constitutions require that an election be held within 60-days after the respective seats became vacant.

PahatMari : Maybe DYMM Agong can declare Emergency to bar PRU between now and after Monsoon, So politicians can stop presuring the PM to dissolve the parliament.

BlueShark1548 : GE 15? No it should only be in the context of it being held in 2023.The 3 bye elections would be announced but likely to be overtaken by GE15 which now would likely be held in February 2023 during CNY when all balik kampong.

GreenCrab8265 : Kita observe today jika bajet diteruskan maknanya parlimen tidak dibubarkan. Jika sebaliknya sendiri fikir dan beri jawapan.

Will floodwaters flush away Umno-Baru in GE15? By Mariam Mokhtar


Malaysiakini : COMMENT
 | Why do we allow Malaysia to be hijacked by Umno-Baru?

Have any of the senior Umno-Baru/BN politicians, who are desperate for the 15th general election (GE15) to be held this year, visited flood victims in their own homes? Meeting them in the flood relief centres is nothing like checking on their welfare in their residence in the aftermath of a flood.

We've seen photos of politicians who were reluctant to alight from their SUVs whilst touring flooded areas. Others think they've seen plenty from the safety of a helicopter.

Perhaps these politicians have been pre-warned. Even before they enter the victims' flooded homes, the stench of the receding floodwaters will make them gag. Read it all here............

CJ echoes Sultan Nazrin's call that judges must be free from any influence

 


Malaysiakini : Both judiciary and alternative dispute resolution (ADR) systems should strive to provide reasoned decisions while deciding on cases independently, fairly and without fear or favour, said Chief Justice Tengku Maimun Tuan Mat.

She said the independence of the judiciary was a concept that is embossed into the very fabric of the justice system.

ā€œSultan Nazrin (the Sultan of Perak, Sultan Nazrin Shah) too very recently spoken on this. To quote Tuanku: ā€œThere should not be any doubt and a judge must be free from any influence or pressureā€.

ā€œAlthough Sultan Nazrinā€™s address was in relation to the Syariah courts, the considerations in relation to the Malaysian judiciary and even the ADR systems remain the same.

ā€œBoth systems should strive to provide reasoned decisions while deciding cases independently, fairly and without fear or favour.

ā€œIn this regard, I can do no better than to humbly echo Tuankuā€™s sentiments,ā€ said the top judge in her address at the Fourth Asian ADR Week 2022 Conference of the Asian International Arbitration Centre (AIAC) today.

During the event, Sultan Nazrin also delivered his keynote address.

Apart from that, Tengku Maimun (above) said the judiciary recognises the crucial role of arbitration and other ADR mechanisms.

Go out and vote, we have the last say

Malaysiakini : ā€˜The die has been cast and the elections are about to be called.ā€™

COMMENT | Harapan should welcome GE15

Old Horse: This election is not about winning and losing; it's about votersā€™ turnout. If you hold election fully knowing that flood and rain would hinder the process, it is not democracy, it is bad intention.

Worst of all, someone is trying to hijack the process for his own agenda so he would not be prosecuted.

Arjun: An immediacy for an election makes much sense and would seem the appropriate moral and responsible initiative that is long overdue. The present hotchpotch government, fabricated originally at Sheraton Hotel, has had little legitimacy in the eyes of the public.

Part of those in the present government as ministers forsook and betrayed the coalition that had gained majority and electoral legitimacy. Another part of the present government, including Prime Minister Ismail Sabri Yaacob, are parliamentary members of a political party that lost the majority in the last national election.

All this may seem properly legal and appropriate in a fledgling democracy and legally also enabling in one which is pre-eminently a raced-based political mould. But such allegedly insidious manipulation of elections is no good legacy to leave behind in the interests of future generations.

It could be viewed as a laughable matter as the question of proper legitimacy should and could have been tested at the earliest occasion after the Sheraton complicity.

Possibly by then most of those who betrayed the elected government through defection would have been probably tarred and feathered and shunned by a disgusted electorate.

More responsible and decent leaders could have emerged from any number of political parties and we could have saved the nation of much of the disadvantages and agony it had endured in the last many, many months.
