Online petition calls for changing name of Pakistan’s capital from Islamabad to ‘Islamagood’
Monday, March 01, 2021
In the Land of The Pakis
Jihad Watch : This is all good fun, but it is useful to recall how Islamabad got its name in the first place. The History of Jihad
explains how a Muslim historian, Saqa Mustad Khan, writing just after
the Mughal emperor Aurangzeb died in 1707, compiled a detailed record of
Aurangzeb’s jihad activity from the emperor’s state archives. Khan
recorded with obvious pride how, in 1670, the present capital of
Pakistan got its name:
During this month of Ramzan [Ramadan] abounding in
miracles, the Emperor as the promoter of justice and overthrower of
mischief, as a knower of truth and destroyer of oppression, as the
zephyr of the garden of victory and the reviver of the faith of the
Prophet, issued orders for the demolition of the temple situated in
Mathura, famous as the Dehra of Kesho Rai. In a short time, by the great
exertions of his officers, the destruction of this strong foundation of
infidelity was accomplished, and on its site a lofty mosque was built
at the expenditure of a large sum. Praised be the august God of the
faith of Islam, that in the auspicious reign of this destroyer of
infidelity and turbulence, such a wonderful and seemingly impossible
work was successfully accomplished. On seeing this instance of the
strength of the Emperor’s faith and the grandeur of his devotion to God,
the proud Rajas were stifled and in amazement they stood like images
facing the wall. The idols, large and small, set with costly jewels
which had been set up in the temple were brought to Agra, and buried
under the steps of the mosque of the Begam Sahib, in order to be
continually trodden upon. The name of Mathura was changed to Islamabad.
“Pakistan: Online Petition to change the name of ‘Islamabad’ to ‘Islamagood’ goes viral,” OpIndia, February 22, 2021:
Recently, an online petition to rename Pakistan’s National Capital Islamabad has begun doing the rounds of the internet.
The said petition was created by one Canada-based Bangladeshi
national named Ayham Abrar and was directed to the Pakistani PM Imran
Khan. The campaign sought to change the name of ‘Islama-bad’ to
‘Islama-good.’ Although the petition was started about 7 months ago, it
got traction on social media in the last few days.
In his petition, Ayham claimed, “Islam is good. Pakistan love Islam.
Why IslamaBAD? Love from Bangladesh.” After the campaign went viral on
social media, it drew about 384 signatures by Monday morning. It must be
mentioned that the petitioner had set a target of 500 signatures….
The name ‘Islamabad’ actually stands for the ‘City of Islam’. Unlike
what Ayham had suggested, the name is a combination of two words ‘Islam’
and ‘Abad’ and not ‘Bad’.
Nigga Obama’s New Muslim Podcast: Allah’s “Throwing Shade at Jews and Christians”
Jihad Watch : Obama’s gotta do something with his time besides serving as the
facade for a bunch of white socialists looking to wreck America. Besides
that job only pays in the low six figures, so he’s got contracts with
Netflix and Spotify through his own production company.
The Obama podcasting game includes talking about how racist the
country is to fellow working-class millionaire hero Bruce Springsteen,
and this Muslim podcast.
Barack and Michelle Obama have their Ramadan plans ready.
The couple, who have spent the years since Barack’s US presidency
came to an end focusing on developing multi-platform media projects,
announced a new season of their Higher Ground podcast called Tell Them, I
Am, which will feature a collection of narratives from Muslim voices.
No, Obama’s not actually in it.
Produced by the Obamas, the pod will be hosted by Misha
Euceph, a first-gen Pakistan-American and exclusively available on the
platform, launching on the first day of Ramadan.
Euceph also appears to have hosted a Koran book club on Instagram. Here’s the description of one episode.
God is still throwing shade at the Jews and Christians this episode of #quranbookclub
Meanwhile, social media is purging conservatives. But this sort of thing can help you get a podcast produced by Barry.
Has Harapan done enough that it deserves Putrajaya again? - Commander S THAYAPARAN (Retired) Royal Malaysian Navy
Politically Correct Useful Idiot
Malaysiakini : “I personally won’t say (that we have done enough to convince the
rakyat). We could have been more organised and put aside personal
grievances, among many things." - Kulai MP Teo Nie Ching
Former deputy education minister Teo Nie Ching is one of the few
Pakatan Harapan political operatives to rightly reflect if the coalition
has done enough to prove that it deserves a second chance at the
Putrajaya hot seat.
As it is, nobody but the hardcore base of Harapan thinks that it deserves a second chance in Putrajaya.
This was always the most striking and perverse aspect of the Begum controversy: the cultural elites’ sympathy for her.
Their transformation of her into a victim. Specifically the moral failure, or at least moral unwillingness, of
significant sections of the media and cultural elites to recognise the
gravity of Ms Begum’s crime. She is, to put it plainly, a traitor. She
stabbed her country of birth in the back.
She betrayed her family, her
community and her society, and that is even before we get to the more
complex question of how she assisted ISIS in its vile supremacist
project, from its genocidal assault on the Yazidi people to its
sectarian slaughter of kaffirs and dissenters.
That some Labour
politicians, broadsheet commentators and members of the Twitterati
appear to have expressed more sympathy for Shamima Begum than they ever
did for the Yazidi women brutalised by ISIS speaks to a deep moral
discombobulation right here in 21st-century Britain.
The Supreme Court of NOT so great britain tells Shamima Begum to go fcuk herself
The UK won't allow ISIS bride Shamima Begum to come back to Britain. Many European women had gone to Syria to marry ISIS fighters. Their husbands have now been killed or jailed. The ISIS Brides want to return. Will Europe let them?
The Valley Of Tears: Israel's Last Stand At Golan Heights
Friday, February 26, 2021
In 1973, Syria launches a surprise attack against Israel in the Golan Heights. This is a story of survival, where a few out-numbered tankers manage to hold off an enemy of overwhelming size in one of the greatest tank battles ever waged.
To quote Brezhnev : We have offered them (the Arabs) a sensible way for so many years. But no, they wanted to fight. Fine! We gave them technology, the latest, the kind even Vietnam didn't have. They had double superiority in tanks and aircraft, triple in artillery, and in air defense and anti-tank weapons they had absolute supremacy. And what? Once again they were beaten.
Once again they scrammed. Once again they screamed for us to come save them. Sadat woke me up in the middle of the night twice over the phone, "Save me!" He demanded to send Soviet troops, and immediately! No! We are not going to fight for them."
Now's the time Pakistan and Turkey should step in and save her! Horrible , she is so young and already has a kid, almighty please make another planet for these baby production houses to live, earth is too small to accomodate them!!
The Chinese Wehrmacht Panzer Commander: Chiang Wei-kuo
When the Wehrmacht rolled into Austria in 1938 during the Anschluss, there was one officer commanding a Panzer regiment that stood out.
He wasn't a German, and frankly, wasn't even European. Chiang Wei-kuo was the son of China's generalissimo Chiang Kai-shek, received military education in Bavaria, and even commanded a Panzer regiment as Germany annexed their southern neighbour.

Pakatan Harapan leaders about the emergency. Apparently, what he said

as everyone but PN seems to want, then these MPs would be saying the

India: Muslims Hold Rally to Celebrate 100th Anniversary of 1921 Moplah Hindu Genocide
Monday, February 22, 2021
Jihad Watch : “They murdered and plundered abundantly, and killedor
drove away all Hindus who would not apostatize. Somewhere about a lakh
of people were driven from their homes with nothing but the clothes they
had on, stripped of everything. Malabar has taught us what Islamic rule
still means, and we do not want to see another specimen of the Khilafat
Raj in India.” These statements were written by Annie Besant in her book The Future of Indian Politics.
In his book Pakistan or the Partition of India, the father of the Indian constitution, Babasaheb Ambedkar, recounts: “The
blood-curdling atrocities committed by the Moplas in Malabar against
the Hindus were indescribable. All over Southern India, a wave of
horrified feeling had spread among the Hindus of every shade of opinion…”
The Hindu genocide of 1921, also known as the Moplah Massacre, was
orchestrated by jihadis of Malabar, Kerala and marks its 100th
anniversary in 2021. The well-planned ethnic cleansing claimed about
10,000 Hindu lives and led to the rapes of numerous women and children.
It is speculated that no less than a hundred Hindu temples were taken
down by jihadis baying for Hindu blood during this genocide. After
putting them through unspeakable tortures, the jihadis forced countless
Hindus to convert to Islam.

| To Ayah Punya kata, GrayDeer0609, Legit, Semua Boleh – Bodoh pun
Boleh and of course, the aptly named Victim, your comments are
apparently worth half a million ringgit. Of course, for half a million
ringgit I would have expected rhetorical Molotov cocktails instead of
the usual Malaysiakini drive-bys which is what these comments were.
I guess the "Malaysiakini 5 learnt
his or her lesson", someone texted me. Really? Five anonymous
subscribers wrote something that the political elites have said and the
news portal gets fined but Malaysiakini managed to raise more than was needed through public appeals in record time, what exactly is the lesson here?
Eurasia Review : Former Attorney General Tommy Thomas in his recent book, “My Story: Justice in the Wilderness,” suggested that big-time corruption in the Malaysian polity sprang up during the Tun Abdul Razak era – 1970-1976 – that a secret or covert space in government appeared, out of sight of any scrutiny.
This is real power, where greed and self-interests reign, over national interests. It is a milieu that has hobbled the country for more than a year with at least four factions struggling for power and a weak prime minister attempting to hold off his opponents through political patronage and other subterfuges to keep them at bay.
There is a good deal of truth in the theory that a deep culture of secrecy and non-accountability exists in Malaysia’s government and administration that gets in the way of honest government. It is more complicated than that, with a vast web of relationships between a powerful civil service, a political class more involved in ruling than governing, a web of laws that discourage reform groups and journalists, and a permissive culture that looks away in exchange for perks at election time rather than ending the careers of blemished politicians.
Those within the political or civil administration discovered committing corrupt acts are most often shifted quietly to other departments, or even promoted. There is no Freedom of information (FOI) framework, leaving administrative decisions to never reach public knowledge. Many contracts are awarded without transparent due process through tender processes, with major contracts with massive public interest considerations like toll way concession agreements hidden under the cover of the Official Secrets Act (OSA).
Corruption starts at the bottom, from distorted stationary, cleaning, and vehicle maintenance contracts in government departments, making its way up through land deals undertaken by state agencies like State Economic Development Corporations, to the misallocation of public funds to bogus and white-elephant projects where politicians and their associates benefit. Some reach public knowledge like the National Feedlot Scandal, known colloquially as Cowgate, in which a powerful political leader, Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, United Malays National Organization minister for women, family and community was accused of diverting a portion of RM250 million from a halal cattle feeding project to pay for condominiums, vacations and a Mercedes. She survived the crisis and Rafizi Ramli, the opposition figure who exposed it, was sentenced to 18 months in jail – suspended – for violating the Bank Secrecy Act.
As with Cowgate, most such scandals remain hidden behind the façade of power and government. While 1Malaysia Development Bhd melted down in the biggest financial scandal in Malaysian history, with US$4.5 billion lost to mismanagement and corruption, the meltdown was largely detected by international press and the US justice department. Most will never be discovered, investigated, or prosecuted. Any activists or journalists who may be curious will be warned away via the Official Secrets Act. The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission is not an independent body, relying on the Public Prosecutor to give permission for any court proceedings against alleged wrongdoers.
Official health pages and emergency warnings were also scrubbed, three days before the launch of a nationwide COVID-19 vaccination program. Facebook faced an angry backlash on Thursday after blocking news feeds in Australia in a surprise escalation of a dispute with the government which could be a test for the future of online publishing worldwide.
The move was denounced by media groups, politicians and human rights groups in Australia and beyond, as it became clear that official health pages and emergency warnings had been scrubbed along with news sites, just three days before the launch of a nationwide COVID-19 vaccination program. “Facebook’s actions to unfriend Australia today, cutting off essential information services on health and emergency services, were as arrogant as they were disappointing,” Prime Minister Scott Morrison wrote on his own Facebook page.
Australians are also deleting their accounts and asking their friends to share phone numbers before deleting their platforms permanently. Hashtags #DeleteFacebook and #BoycottZuckerberg have also been trending on Twitter as users protest against the social media platform’s decision to delete their news feed.

Just like when the British looted and stole from India. From what you shop to what you read. Big tech is controlling everything. In India Amazon bypassed rules, favoured 33 big sellers. In Australia Facebook wipes news from its platform. Can tech giants set rules of the worldwide web? Is big tech the new East India Company?
PM should get his priorities right with vaccine queue - Commander S THAYAPARAN (Retired) Royal Malaysian Navy

| Of course, politicians are going to jump the queue and get vaccinated
while the rest of us schmucks are going to have to be at the mercy of a
bureaucracy which is attempting to navigate this pandemic without any
transparency and accountability.

Philippine Navy says it will return fire after Chinese war threat - They have balls unlike US!!
Wednesday, February 17, 2021
Philippines says its navy will shoot back! after China told to shoot at any vessel in South China Sea. China has made a “threat of war” over its arbitrary borders in the South China Sea. Beijing said it will “take all necessary measures” in the conflict.
The South China Sea is reaching boiling point. Beijing has told its Coast Guard to shoot at any vessel inside its arbitrarily declared ‘nine-dash line’ borders. Now the Philippines says its navy will shoot back.
Philippines Foreign Affairs Secretary Teodoro Locsin Jr this week vowed any response would bring serious consequences.
“So far there has been no incident. If there is an incident, I can assure you there will be more than just a protest,” Mr Locsin told local media.
The Al Maunah Incident another forgotten Brave Hero - Trooper Mathew Ak Medan of the Special Forces Group
Tuesday, February 16, 2021
Please take note, that Wikipedia, does not mention this hero at all.The Commanding Officer at that time was Lieutenant Colonel Stephen Mundaw who has already left service as a Lieutenant General (3 Star General). Final orders were given for a Battalion Assault. Notice East Malaysians involved, one of them Corporal Matthew Medan was killed. The Real Hero of Sauk Sergeant Ukoon ak Pungkok of 9th Rangers.
Country belongs to rakyat, not politicians by Lieutenant Colonel MOHD IDRIS HASSAN (Retired)
The Star : " LOOKING at the recent events taking place in our country, it’s not difficult to conclude that race relations must be at the lowest ebb now.
And it’s happening as we mourn the loss of one of Malaysia’s favourite sons who spent his entire life fighting for the country he loved and called home. Distinguished ex-police officer Tan Sri Yuen Yuet Leng must have found it extremely painful seeing what he and his colleagues had built disintegrating before his very eyes, and that those who shed their blood and helped make Malaysia a great country are now referred to quite freely as pendatang and even told that they should go back to their countries of origin if they are not happy here.
One deputy minister was so caught up with the Petaling Street incident, where the Chinese ambassador visited Petaling Street, he even threatened to “slap” Chinese Malaysians if they took their grouses outside the country to what he called their godfather from China. The threat was such that even without the actual act taking place, the crack and echo of the word lempang (slap) has reached the far corners of this country, causing much ire among the Chinese population.
Our politicians need to be reminded that to be good leaders, they must be well disciplined, do not get easily ruffled and not make racially charged and hurtful statements that can break race relations. I still remember Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak a few year ago during his visit to Chennai, India saying it was important to recognise all those who contributed to nation-building irrespective of their ethnic background.
For the majority of non-Malays who have long been citizens, especially those born after Merdeka, Malaysia is the only country they know. They are not citizens of China or India and cannot pergi balik India or pergi balik China.
The Chinese have proven that they are loyal and responsible citizens. During the Emergency, our police force had one of the best Special Branch units in the world manned by officers 90% of whom were Chinese. It was the SB that helped break the back of the communist terrorists and contributed in no small way to make this country a safe and secure place where all, irrespective of race and religion, can work, raise their families and share the bounties fairly and proportionally. More can be done in the equal distribution of wealth, though.
I would like to commend the Malay Rulers who have intervened to remind politicians and NGOs not to stoke racial and religious tension to garner support. The Bersih 4 rally and the counter rally by the red shirts added fuel to the fire, as racial slurs were hurled openly. Perhaps we need to rethink if these rallies serve any useful purpose.
Meanwhile, will all the “warring” parties take a step back from the brink to mull over the advice of the rulers? Please remember that this country does not belong to politicians; it belongs to the rakyat.
Malaysiakini : “A prime minister should not have to say ‘I got my legacy from Tun’.” - Dr Mahathir Mohamad (June 23, 2020)
COMMENT | Amanah strategic director Dzulkefly Ahmad’s public statement that Harapan was willing to offer
former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad a mentor minister or senior
minister role in the next government if the old maverick wanted to
collaborate with Pakatan Harapan in the next polls is the kind of
strategy which has landed Harapan in the mess it is in.
off, the idea of any kind of mentor or senior minister role is the kind
of “Asian values” bunkum propagated by aged paternalistic political
operatives around Asia who are intellectually and morally bankrupt, who
would rather rely on personality politics than substantive policies to
further their political agendas.
is right up there with “guided” democracies which is a shorthand for
fascist-leaning racialists and religionists who would rather attempt a
pantomime of democracy instead of the hard work of building independent
democratic institutions and credible elections.
In 2020, Mahathir,
when presented with this option, made his stance clear on the issue.
“No, I will not accept it,” he said in an interview with Sin Chew Daily.
said that based on his experience, no one would listen to his advice.
“Whenever I advise a prime minister (Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, Najib Abdul
Razak or Muhyiddin Yassin), they never take my advice,” he had said.

functioning democracy. In any event, I can take a lot on the chin, let
alone a couple of bum raps and innuendoes." – Anwar Ibrahim
COMMENT | People have asked me what I think of opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim’s review of former attorney-general Tommy Thomas’ book My Story: Justice in the Wilderness. Well, the answer is simple. I think it is an interesting review.
the best part of the review is when Anwar disputes Thomas’ racial
narratives in the book by offering up his own take on systemic racism,
something that Anwar acknowledges exists.
is a whole passage where Anwar decries the former attorney-general for
laying “the preponderance of the blame being levelled on Malay leaders,

Contact At The Kinta Forest Reserve - Captain Mohana Chandran al Velayuthan (200402) SP, Ranger Bajau ak Ladi PGB & Cpl Osman PGB - Latest Update By Lt Col Baldev Singh (Retired)
Monday, February 08, 2021
"Capt Ray Mohana Chandran was killed in action in June 1971. He was in 4th Rangers in Ipoh. I was then in 7th Rangers in Sg Petan, a 2nd Lt.
Chandran clashed with a group (5th Assault Unit - AU) led by State Committee Member (SCM) Chong Kwai Hong. After the clash SCM Chong withdrew to South Thailand. We spent a lot of time trying to track the group down with sporadic success.
In 1974, I was Intelligence Officer 7th Rangers. While operating in Sg Siput area, about 10km from where Chandran clashed with SCM Chong in 1971, 7 Platoon C Company came across some markings made of bamboo along a mountain ridge streching on the slopes of Gunong Korbu. These findings were on 20th April. A day earlier on 19th Apr, A Company clashed with a group of CTs (we suffered 2 wounded) who withdrew northwards towards the findings. The platoon under Sgt Harris, was instructed to lay an ambush along the ridge close to the bamboo markings.
On 22nd April at 10.55am, BANG!! - the ambush was sprung. Two terrorists were killed in the initial burst and during the follow up 30 mins later another 3. In this clash, 5 bodies were recovered, one of which was SCM Chong and another his wife. After this not much was heard of 5th AU. It was replaced by 6th AU. We recovered quite a bit of $$$ from this clash- obviously, he was their high ranking leader. A sixth member of the group bumped into 2 Rangers (Mortar Pl I believe) and was eliminated.
What pleased me is, without realising it, we avenged Chandran's misfortune. At that time I did not know Chandran's exit was a result of the clash with SCM Chong's group. I have not shared this with anyone till now after going through the viral clip circulating about Chandran's contact.
Also maybe in the 70s we were just too busy to sit back and rejoice on our success. Now, on reading and listening to the script, I realised what we had scored - we avenged our brother officer's death. Its 50 years ago!!!!
May God bless Chandran's soul and let him know the score. I will raise this with 4th Rangers' guys so that some closing can be done at unit level." - Lt Col Baldev SingH (Retired)
When signs of enemy presence(Communist Terrorists) were discovered at the Korbu Forest Reserve, Sungei Siput and Tanah Hitam from the 8th May until 31st May 1971, a mixed Reconnaissance Group was formed. The intelligence received at that time, was that the enemy had just moved into the area. The enemy unit was commanded by DCM Chong Kwai Hong, the overall Commander being Chong Chor.
What the intelligence failed to notice was that the enemy had moved into the area 2 months ago. The position the enemy was entrenched in was fortified with trenches. The enemy camp had even an underground kitchen.
So to destroy this enemy a sub - unit of the Unit Combat Intelligence Platoon (4th Rangers) , comprising of ten men led by Captain V.Mohan Chandran of the 4th Battalion Royal Rangers, Special Government Agents (Surrendered Enemy Personnel from the 1st Emergency- SEP), Special Branch and members of the 3rd Reconnaissance Regiment.
They were tasked to reconnoiter the movement of the enemy in the Ulu Kinta forest, Perak. This group was sent, as there were signs and information concerning the movement of the Communist Terrorists in the whole of that area. They were moving with impunity in that area, they dominated the ground there, it was time to show the Enemy that their days of terror were over.
This combined group was inserted into the operational area on the 3rd June 1971. This combined unit was commanded by Captain Mohana Chandran al Velayuthan (200402) and assisted by 2LT Donald Patrick John (2000913), both who, were from the 4th Rangers.
Tommy Thomas and the burden of race - Commander S THAYAPARAN (Retired) Royal Malaysian Navy
FairMalaysian : Well, we need have to argue that perhaps Malaysia is the most racist country in the world. Its institutionalised racism and its uncanny pretense all these years has taken a toll.
Someone appointed in MARA allegedly steals by way of commissions in the millions. When the MACC broke the news yesterday, I was not surprised at all. A Malay stealing from the funds allocated for Malays. Beyond all this, even his religion never made him feel it is wrong to cheat on the money he has been entrusted with.
It looks like the MACC's budget has been increasing over the years. Does this mean that corruption has also been increasing. There is a possibility of putting corruption in the backburner if those in the power and civil service refuse to accept bribes. And is it a coincidence that the civil service consists of mostly Malays. Isn't it a shame that this scourge has had a permanent residency.
I have to say this. Once I went to see someone senior in the civil service to get something done. I was told that he was saying his prayers as he is very strict with his five times prayers a day. Eventually when we met, it took me some 45 mins to get an answer on what he could have given in under 10 mins. He was simply beating around the bush to drive home a point - to be rewarded for his effort to "help". Of course, I never got it.
This is not to offend anyone or any race but this is how sick this country is. When Najib,Tengku Adnan, Md Isa and a number of them lay their hand on people's money, it begs the question on how far Islam as the religion of the Federation had failed. These are no ordinary people, they were leaders. If this land can produce a devout and a simple religious leader like Tok Guru, why that had become an exception rather than the norm?
Malaysiakini : “Everything I did was painted in racial tones and hues. And they succeeded. The brainwashing achieved its objectives.” - Tommy Thomas
excerpts from Tommy Thomas’ memoir about, amongst other things, his
brief stint as attorney-general (AG) for this country, it is amazing
that a non-Malay could do anything without being vilified by the state
because of their ethnicity.
His message about a dithering
Harapan when it came to reforms - imagine that, the prison board,
perhaps the most relevant authority when it comes to the death penalty;
welcoming abolishing the death penalty but Harapan political operatives
dithering and pandering – is of no surprise, the reality of the racial
dynamics and a festering 'Don’t spook the Malays agenda' is perhaps the
greatest impediment to reform in this country.
Stop treating Dayaks as second class citizens in Sarawak By Emma Victoria
Stop sending Little Napoleons from Malaya to lord it over the Dayaks
The NewSarawak : THOUGH Dayaks make up the largest population in Sarawak, not a single Dayak politician has make it to the top as Chief Minister to lead the state, as they are divided by various parties.
DAP Serian Chairman Brolin Nicholsion said there are about 1,835,900 Dayaks in Sarawak, but they are always being treated as second class citizens in the state.
“The Dayak voters are “very attractive” to every political party during elections… They were promised various projects and funds. However, they would be abandoned after (these politicians) win with the Dayak votes,” he said in a statement.
He said the last time Sarawak had a Dayak Chief Minister was in 1966, when the then Governor, Abang Haji Openg appointed Datuk Tawi Sli as the Chief Minsiter during the Sarawak Constitutional Crisis.
Besides, 73,800 out of 820,000 of Sarawak families were living below the poverty income line where the family received below RM3,000 a month.
“Out of 73,800 families, the majority are Dayaks as most of them are still living in rural areas, which lacks basic amenities and infrastructures,” he said.
Brolin said the Dayaks will be the kingmakers in the next Sarawak state election and could contribute to the winds of change in Sarawak.
“The Dayaks must prove themselves that they are not easily bought by money and projects that are supposedly being done within the five-year-term for them.
This is the time that the Dayaks will have the chance to have a Dayak Chief Minister since 1970 and will have the chance to have a Dayak Governer as per the gentlemen’s agreement made by the founding members of Sarawak,” he said.
“Sarawak DAP will make sure the rights of the Dayaks are well taken care. DAP is not a party that only takes care of the Chinese community as alleged by some politicians. DAP is a party for all ‘Anak Malaysia’ and will fight and be the voice of the voiceless and the strength for the weak,” he stressed.
“I call upon the Dayaks to support the opposition parties, especially the DAP and prove that they have the ‘Agi Idup Agi Ngelaban’ spirit in them to fight the injustice and corrupt government so Sarawak can move forward to have better development and good governance for a new Sarawak.”
Nobody asks non-Malay politicians when they will ditch the bumi system - Commander S THAYAPARAN (Retired) Royal Malaysian Navy
Malaysiakini : If my answers frighten you, Vincent, then you should cease asking scary questions. - Jules Winnfield in the movie Pulp Fiction
| Lee Hwok Aun of the Iseas–Yusof Ishak Institute asks, “Will
bumiputeras ever relinquish the privileges they enjoy?”, believing, like
a majority of non-Malays and 'liberal'-minded Malays, that this
question, although provocative, is one that needs to be asked.
you, this piece is not directed specifically at Lee, because this
question and certain themes involving this question have been around for
some time now.
a charitable reading of the question, it is a red herring, but more
often, it is a deflection from the mainstream politics of this country
that enables the bumiputera system and which forms the basis of
political compromises which over the years has had diminishing returns.
of all, non-Malays and the politicians they vote for enable the system
of privileges – as defined by the former deputy governor of the central
bank that is the starting point of Lee’s piece – and other Malay uber
alles policies that everyone seems to think are detrimental to this
Second, non-Malay politicians not only actively seek to
promote such policies but do so in either overtly or sub rosa methods to
cling on to the meagre influence the Malay uber alles establishment
allows them to have.
Third, non-Malay political operatives savage
each other. Normally this happens to operatives from opposing coalitions
but it also happens fairly frequently within coalitions as a means to
whittle away opposition from threats to the political stability of the
coalition when it comes to bumiputera sensitivities.

In 2018, he wrote a letter with Jean-Pierre Obin (author of the book Comment we let Islamism penetrate the school) to the President of the Republic to urge the government to act to protect the youth from the influence of fundamentalists, and in November 2020 he published an open letter after the beheading of Samuel Paty to denounce the state’s lack of strategy in the face of political Islam.
Today, after twenty years of unfailing commitment, Didier Lemaire is throwing in the towel. Forced to go to work under armed police escort, the teacher expects nothing more than his exfiltration from this establishment and from this city where he is no longer safe.
“ I have been under escort since November ,” says Didier Lemaire. Every time I get in the car, I check that my doors are properly closed, that I am not being followed. I don’t want to live in fear. I’m just waiting for one thing: my exfiltration. “ More than by the feeling of fear, Didier Lemaire is overcome by anger. He refuses to be silent and denounces the attempts to intimidate certain inhabitants of the city, but also the intervention of the mayor himself, Ali Rabeh , whose election has just been annulled by justice and who has been condemned to one year of ineligibility.
“The mayor is peddling false and hateful accusations in the city which designate me as a potential target ,” protests the professor. He called me an Islamophobe and a racist. He has the right to think so. But this thought is a weapon of ideological warfare and it is calumny. It is above all a disgusting process, after what happened to Samuel Paty. He throws me into the pasture and puts me in danger. It is absolutely irresponsible on the part of an elected representative of the Republic. I ask the parties, Communist, Génération.s, La République en Marche and Europe Écologie-Les Verts, to disown his remarks. ” Contacted, the mayor has so far not responded to our requests.
For Didier Lemaire, this long-term fight ends in Trappes, in 2021, after years of a struggle that began in the first days of his appointment to this post. “Twenty years ago, it all started for me with the burning of the synagogue in October 2000. After that, there were no more Jews in Trappes. And finally, no more anti-Semitic inscriptions on the city walls. Now atheists and moderate Muslims are leaving. Fundamentalists are in the process of successfully completing their purification process. It’s frightening ! Everything is accelerating, in two years, I have seen more transformation in young people and in the public space than in the last eighteen years. Today, attacks on secularism are collective and very well organized. ”
Didier Lemaire does not want to leave his classroom in Trappes without once again sounding the alarm. If he says the city has fallen into the hands of the Islamists and recognizes the defeat of his Republican fight, he refuses to lower his arms . “I remain a philosophy teacher , he asserts (…) But I consider that Trappes is a city definitely lost. » Tireless defender of secularism and freedom confronted with the harsh reality of the territories of the Republic which are said to be lost. Didier Lemaire defends the idea of a strong but above all urgent political response.
“We don’t have much time before it gets out of hand ,” he is alarmed. Many of these children are raised in hatred of France. We are not far from an Algerian scenario and we are no longer in a state of peace.
Fall of the Malacca Sultanate - How 1000 Portuguese Soldiers Toppled an Empire
Malaysian history often centers around the Malacca Sultanate.
The Malacca Sultanate was a diverse and prosperous merchant empire with extensive trade networks throughout the Indian Ocean, but in 1512CE its capital city was captured by a small Portuguese invasion force. The event sent the Malacca Sultanate into a tailspin from which it never recovered.
Despite how important the event is to Southeast Asian and Indian history, few know the details.
In fact, the Fall of the Malacca Sultanate is a story that involves many fascinating people, from feuding Tamil and Gujarati merchant lords to an imprisoned Portuguese soldier who managed to ferry secret messages to his comrades.
Thomas’ book a breath of fresh air, engage ex-AG on his facts, opinions and assertions, but don’t seek to silence him– Dennis Ignatius -
THE recent publication of Tan Sri Tommy Thomas’ memoir, My Story: Justice in the Wilderness, appears to have ruffled many feathers. He is being sued, police reports have been lodged against him, and angry denunciations have been made. And now, the Home Ministry is threatening to have the book banned.
Not since Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s The Malay Dilemma has a book stirred so much controversy.
Regardless of whether one agrees with Thomas’ take on events or his presentation of the facts as he saw it, the book has generated widespread debate and discussion about key events in our nation. This has not happened before, and is long overdue.
As a nation, we tend to avoid a frank discussion on issues, for fear of stoking tensions. The result is that people in power who act egregiously, even illegally, have been able to avoid accountability.
It may be argued that we are where we are today because we failed to hold these kinds of discussions in the past. In this sense, Thomas’ book should be welcomed by all Malaysians interested in transparency and accountability.
Thomas is also not the first senior official to write a memoir. The late Tun Mohamed Salleh Abas, for example, was just as forthright in his own memoir (May Day for Justice). Dr Mahathir, too, wrote a memoir (A Doctor in the House).
What these memoirs do is peel away the layers of official whitewash, and allow ordinary citizens an opportunity to make their own assessment of the people and politics that have shaped our nation.
In this sense, Thomas, like Salleh before him, has done the nation a great service, and I, for one, laud him for his courage in sharing his thoughts and perspectives of key events that continue to inform our politics.
I thought it instructive, as well, that while Dr Mahathir was clearly peeved by some of Thomas’ comments, he has not faulted the man’s professional conduct or the way he studiously sought to uphold the rule of law.
Can there be any doubt that some of the high-profile cases of corruption and malfeasance now before our courts would not have happened without Thomas’ commitment to justice on behalf of the people of Malaysia? That, in itself, speaks volumes of the man.
It is also worth noting that much of what he has revealed in his book is not entirely new, though his insider perspective lends greater credibility to earlier reports. The view that May 13 was a coup against Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra Al-Haj, for example, was extensively covered in Kua Kia Soong’s 2007 book, May 13: Declassified Documents on the Malaysian Riots of 1969.
The events surrounding the surprise resignation of Dr Mahathir were also widely covered and dissected in the media for almost a whole year before Thomas’ book.
Furthermore, Thomas’ remark that “seldom in our nation’s history have so many million voters been let down by the actions of one man” is a view that is still widely held and shared. Thomas simply gave expression to what many of us already know or have long suspected. No doubt, many will thank him for it.
Of course, some of the people mentioned in his book have not come out smelling like roses. It is up to them to defend themselves and their actions. What they should not be allowed to do, however, is silence him or the conversation that has been started as a result of the publication of his book.
They "protected democracy" against the voters. So why are we not calling this out for what it is: Massive election interference? Do all American's vote count or just a few? It's almost like the woman who wrote this, is actually trying to expose this to the world -- but wants it to sound like she's meaning it to compliment those involved, so she doesn't get canceled.
The MILITARY should arrest them and hold a trial !!! The only president in history to win an election from his basement. We have a government that doesn't represent it's own people so they won't do crap, but at least we all really know how fake this was. My favorite bit from Time article is “they stopped Trump’s plot”, Trump’s plot?
What was his plot? Winning on Election Day? Communism is a heart beat away. They’re not even trying to hide it. And yet our military who is supposed to defend the constitution, remains silent. They are admitting to their crimes because they know nobody can touch them now. They are gloating about it. They are laughing in our faces.
Tommy Thomas’ book a clear insult, says his successor
Inspired by Donald Trumpet
Malaysiakini : Attorney-General Idrus Harun said his predecessor Tommy Thomas’ new memoir is an insult to the country’s legal institution.
In a letter addressed to members of the Attorney-General’s Chambers, he sought to give encouragement to his colleagues following the publication of the book last Saturday.
“The book’s contents have given a negative impact especially in the eyes of outsiders, and this has a direct effect on the morale and spirits of legal officers.
The more world falsely criticises India, the more UNITY among Indians grows.
I really like these videos. They are a real eye opener. How the modern day war is being faught using social media is so clear and evident. The more we see - the more we learn. "Modi is the Prime Minister of India not the BJP. Don't let anyone defame India." String doesn't only say but gives you the proof of every single statement now go ahead and prove them wrong, they give open challenge to all the so called liberals. Go ahead we stand with you and India stands against propaganda
That tweet from Gretha Thunberg was not just a tweet it was a pre-arranged coup against largest democracy's CHOSEN prime minister and people of India
Malaysiakini : Nazir Razak has expressed his regret over his old family friend and former attorney-general Tommy Thomas’ writing in the latter’s recently published memoir which linked the May 13, 1969 riot to a coup by former prime minister Abdul Razak Hussein.
Tiger in the jungle : Nazir, your father set up the NEP to destroy Malaysia. He set the corruption trains rolling and gave space and oxygen to racist like Dato Harun and narcissist Mahathir and we are paying the price. Your father was the one who started the BN MP allocations back in 1972 and none for opposition MPs. Your father operated in the background. And quite rightly TT exposed it.
You and your dad are pendatangs (from Indonesia) like the rest of us. Where will you be, if not for your father? Singapore, a tiny dot, have left us behind in the dust.
Whilst you chew on the above, please explain how did your father afford to send all his 5 children (including you and your corrupt brother Najib) to private boarding schools in UK. You guys got English education, we here got 3rd rate Malay education. You can regret all you want about your father and we regret about Malaysia.
By the way how much cash did you distribute to unknown characters on behalf of your brother through your bank? RM20m, RM30m? Give us a break.
Tommy Thomas' critics give his book good publicity by Mariam Mokhtar
Malaysiakini : COMMENT | The thing that
can easily rile many Malays, especially civil servants, is their egos.
It's huge. They don't take kindly to criticism. Some may claim that by
extension, any criticism is also an attack on their race and religion.
haven't yet purchased a copy of Tommy Thomas' book, "My Story: Justice
in the Wilderness", but now, like most other people, I will buy a copy
before it is banned or is out of circulation.
are upset with Thomas' personal opinions and have either filed lawsuits
or lodged police reports. Nazir needs to read Britain's declassified
reports on May 13, and civil servants should grow up and stop
surrounding themselves with sycophants. The Malays have lost their
competitive edge. They collect praise, like former police chief Khalid
Abu Bakar used to collect tweets and social media likes.
Malays, especially those serving in the government and the civil
service, ego comes first. His race and religion share equal second
place. His wife may be at number 10. His mother, probably number 7. The
ranking is probably different for Malay women. Vanity about their
husband's pay-packet ranks highly, especially among the Mak Datins
(Malay tai-tais). The pressure to look youthful is probably number 3 on
Time Magazine: ‘Secret,’ ‘Well-funded Cabal’ Worked to ‘Protect’ 2020 Election - Summary, the election laws were rigged to make Joe Biden win
Time Magazine has published a detailed account of what it describes as a “conspiracy” between “left-wing activists and business titans” to create “an extraordinary shadow effort” to “protect” the 2020 presidential election.
The New York Times had reported on the effort in January, referring to the “Democracy Defense Coalition.” The Daily Beast hinted at it in the fall. But the Time article is the most in-depth report at what others suggested was going on behind the scenes.
by Molly Ball, titled “The Secret History of the Shadow Campaign That
Saved the 2020 Election,” presents the effort as a heroic effort to
preserve a free and fair election, and to fend off President Donald
Trump’s anticipated claims of fraud.
Ball’s description, however, also matches what she calls a “paranoid” view of an effort to make it difficult for Trump to win:
The handshake between business and labor was just one
component of a vast, cross-partisan campaign to protect the election–an
extraordinary shadow effort dedicated not to winning the vote but to
ensuring it would be free and fair, credible and uncorrupted. For more
than a year, a loosely organized coalition of operatives scrambled to
shore up America’s institutions as they came under simultaneous attack
from a remorseless pandemic and an autocratically inclined President.
Though much of this activity took place on the left, it was separate
from the Biden campaign and crossed ideological lines, with crucial
contributions by nonpartisan and conservative actors.
Their work touched every aspect of the election. They got states to
change voting systems and laws and helped secure hundreds of millions in
public and private funding. They fended off voter-suppression lawsuits,
recruited armies of poll workers and got millions of people to vote by
mail for the first time. They successfully pressured social media
companies to take a harder line against disinformation and used
data-driven strategies to fight viral smears. They executed national
public-awareness campaigns that helped Americans understand how the vote
count would unfold over days or weeks, preventing Trump’s conspiracy
theories and false claims of victory from getting more traction. After
Election Day, they monitored every pressure point to ensure that Trump
could not overturn the result.
That’s why the participants want the secret history of the 2020
election told, even though it sounds like a paranoid fever dream–a
well-funded cabal of powerful people, ranging across industries and
ideologies, working together behind the scenes to influence perceptions,
change rules and laws, steer media coverage and control the flow of
information. They were not rigging the election; they were fortifying
it. And they believe the public needs to understand the system’s
fragility in order to ensure that democracy in America endures.
Ball describes the participants in this plan as “democracy
campaigners.” It was led by Mike Podhorzer, a “senior adviser to the
president of the AFL-CIO,” one of the nation’s most powerful labor
unions, aligned with the Democratic Party.
In his apartment in the D.C. suburbs, Podhorzer began
working from his laptop at his kitchen table, holding back-to-back Zoom
meetings for hours a day with his network of contacts across the
progressive universe: the labor movement; the institutional left, like
Planned Parenthood and Greenpeace; resistance groups like Indivisible
and MoveOn; progressive data geeks and strategists, representatives of
donors and foundations, state-level grassroots organizers,
racial-justice activists and others.
By April, she notes, Podhorzer was hosting two-and-a-half-hour Zoom
meetings with other participants in the project. They pushed Congress to
fund vote by mail, and persuaded Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to
contributed hundreds of millions of dollars to “election administration
funding.” (As Breitbart News warned, Zuckerberg’s donations looked more like a Democrat get-out-the-vote effort, and was aimed primarily at Democrat-heavy counties in key battleground states.)
The campaign also used legal efforts to change voting procedures
during the COVID pandemic, leading to a “revolution” in mail-in voting: ”
Only a quarter of voters cast their ballots the traditional way: in
person on Election Day,” Ball notes.
The group also used a “nameless, secret project” to fight
“disinformation.” Their method was “to pressure platforms to enforce
their rules, both by removing content or accounts that spread
disinformation.” Ball does not mention the New York Post‘s story about Hunter Biden’s laptop,
but tech companies, mainstream media outlets, and former intelligence
officials leapt in October to call the laptop potential Russian
“disinformation,” and to suppress it. Twitter blocked links to the
story, and also locked the Post out of its account for more
than two weeks. The story was later shown to be true, with Hunter Biden
announcing — after the election — that he was under FBI investigation.

The Congress Party Should Never Rule India Again For All Their Lies,
About time too. It was brought into India by Genocidal Conquerors and they ruled India for 600 years perpetrating atrocities on the majority. After Independence they continued ruling the masses with outright lies. The Congress Party of Muslims ruled India,benefiting the Muslims.
Akbar raped children. Akbar raped his own daughter-in-law. Akbar had Harem of 5000 women. Jahangir blinded his son with his own hands. Shah Jahan did not spare even his own daughter. Aurangzeb beheaded his own brother and sent his head to his imprisoned father.Almost every Mughal king killed some of his sons and brothers and much more.
This book is an eye-opener on Mughal history in India. Mughals have been glorified as great rulers in Indian history books despite being maniacs, incest-lovers, rapists and merciless invaders. The book is a compilation of all hidden facts. Straight from their authentic biographies. To make Indians realize, enough is enough. Do not glorify these filthy creatures in the name of preserving the secular fabric of India. Read it all here............
The Military dictatorship of Burma has learned a lot from the US Democrat Party. Now charging the former leader and Nobel Peace Prize Winner, Suu Kyi with some kind of bureaucratic offence.
Myanmar's police have filed charges against ousted leader Aung San Suu Kyi for breaches of an import-export law and sought her detention until Feb. 15, according to a police document seen on Wednesday.
Remember when Trump got sued for blocking someone on Twitter. Why hasn't anyone sued Biden for turning off comments on youtube? Trump doesn't care. That's what "real" people love about him. He doesn't pander to the incredibly weak idiots. MSM misses The Don. Now that the boogeyman is gone they are useless, ratings are tanking faster than Bidens brain functions.
This is the equivalent of canceling your membership to a streaming service you forgot you had. Hahahah!
