Rudyard Kipling

" “When you're left wounded on
Afganistan's plains and

the women come out to cut up what remains,
Just roll to your rifle

and blow out your brains,
And go to your God like a soldier”
General Douglas MacArthur

" “We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

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

“Nobody ever defended, there is only attack and attack and attack some more.
“It is foolish and wrong to mourn the men who died.
Rather we should thank God that such men lived.
The Soldier stood and faced God
Which must always come to pass
He hoped his shoes were shining
Just as bright as his brass
"Step forward you Soldier,
How shall I deal with you?
Have you always turned the other cheek?
To My Church have you been true?"
"No, Lord, I guess I ain't
Because those of us who carry guns
Can't always be a saint."
I've had to work on Sundays
And at times my talk was tough,
And sometimes I've been violent,
Because the world is awfully rough.
But, I never took a penny
That wasn't mine to keep.
Though I worked a lot of overtime
When the bills got just too steep,
The Soldier squared his shoulders and said
And I never passed a cry for help
Though at times I shook with fear,
And sometimes, God forgive me,
I've wept unmanly tears.
I know I don't deserve a place
Among the people here.
They never wanted me around
Except to calm their fears.
If you've a place for me here,
Lord, It needn't be so grand,
I never expected or had too much,
But if you don't, I'll understand."
There was silence all around the throne
Where the saints had often trod
As the Soldier waited quietly,
For the judgment of his God.
"Step forward now, you Soldier,
You've borne your burden well.
Walk peacefully on Heaven's streets,
You've done your time in Hell."

When I said the people in MAT are stupid and ignorant of the law many people ( general and senior officers) are angry with me - Major Meor Rosli

Latest update from Maj Mior Rosli.

Above :  Old Video 14 March 2024
We have won. The government ( including MAT) wants to appeal. I notice they have no substantive nor affirmative factual or legal grounds for appealing. They are beating round the Bush with unreasonable and untrue facts to disagree with our claim.
During the open court hearing they gave reason that the vast difference of pension is because of basic academic qualifications When they register for appeal they said they do not agree with all the judgement and order made by the High Court judge When they submit their supporting affidavit they said inter alia :
a. We claim for "additional pension" and they refuse to give us additional pension. What we claimed was pension adjustment
b. They said that they cannot pay us because if they win the appeal, we will owe them and it would be difficult for them to collect back the money. I replied that we are not beggers on the street.. we have monthly pension and they can always deduct from our monthly pensions.
c. This time they said they disagree partially with the judgment. The supporting affidavit was signed under oath by mindef KSU on behalf of MAT and other defendents.
I have replied their affidavit and denied all their statements In Parliament, menhan said (from the AG), in article 137(1) the wording which says the YDPA gave his general powers to MAT is wrong. And he goes on and says that article 41 must be read in harmony with article 132. To me all these are rubbish!
A41 states that the YDPA is the supreme commander of the Federation Armed Forces and A132 explain the types of public services.
When I said the people in MAT are stupid and ignorant of the law many people ( general and senior officers) are angry with me.. but it is true. The case management will be on the 9th of May 2024. I hope the court will reject their appeal application.
I am going for roadshows after Raya to explain the situation and at the same time to explain to the non pensioners on how I am going to fight for them.

Iran’s attack on Israel is the ‘first wave’ of escalation in the Middle East Sky News Australia 4.01M subscribers
Barrister and UKLFI Charitable Trust Legal Director Natasha Hausdorff says Iran’s attack on Israel is the “first wave” in what will be an escalated conflict. Iran has launched more than a hundred drones, dozens of cruise missiles, and ballistic missiles at Israel.

The IDF has confirmed the attack is targeted at specific places in the country. It is believed to be a retaliatory attack after Israel destroyed an Iranian consulate in Damascus, Syria, which killed seven members of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. Ms Hausdorff told Sky News Australia that the attack was launched on Israeli sovereign territory itself, without the use of its “proxies”.

I can hear Penny Wong and her/ they mates celebrating from here.

Megyn Kelly slams ‘sanctimonious Prick’ Jimmy Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel calls his own country a s*** hole and everybody laughs. Donald Trump calls Haiti a s*** hole (it is) and people lose their minds. I feel sorry for the Japanese people. Having Jimmy Kimmel in their country must've been awful.

Japan and Russia don't use criminals and drug addicts as voting blocks. Jimmy Kimmel is the most insufferable late night host, and that’s really saying something.

Good to see Jimmy Kimmel now realizes that diversity is not our strength. Japan is clean because:

1. People are conservatives

2. No illegals

3. No riots/rioters allowed

4. People are educated

5. People show their love for their country with ACTION, not bluster

TV reporter's emotional tribute to mother as death toll from Bondi stabbing rises
Saturday, April 13, 2024

Sky News host Laura Jayes has given an emotional tribute to the death of a mother who was killed in the Westfield Bondi Junction stabbing. The death toll of the Bondi attack has risen to seven including the offender.

Ms Jayes described the victim as an “incredible person”. “She was incredible and if you have a new baby like that … you are still well and truly in the newborn phase, you are with that baby all the time,” Ms Jayes said. “I can’t imagine her needing to hand over the most precious thing in her life and they both went into surgery, her husband not knowing if either of them survived. “She was an incredible athlete, she was so smart, so beautiful, and she was just so excited to be a new mother and all of that was ripped away in seconds.”

The mother’s nine-month-old newborn was also stabbed in the attack, undergoing surgery, and remaining in hospital.

Maldives Plans Roadshows in India as Boycott Campaign Bites
Countering Violent Extremism (CVE) in the Maldives

A Maldivian travel association is planning to hold roadshows in key Indian cities in a bid to woo back Indian tourists who have begun boycotting the island nation.

The announcement was made after members of the association met India's top diplomat posted in the Maldives. Indians made up the largest chunk of foreign tourists visiting the Maldives in 2023, but the number has fallen considerably in the first four months of 2024.

Indian tourists have slipped from first to sixth on the list of foreign tourists. The boycott was triggered by derogatory comments made by then-Maldivian ministers at India and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Can roadshows resolve this diplomatic row?

Will Indian tourists return to the Maldives?

'Stupid' ministers like Nga affecting economy, not boycotts - Akmal
Friday, April 12, 2024

Malaysiakini : Umno Youth chief Dr Muhamad Akmal Saleh denied that the boycott campaigns he championed are worsening the economy. Instead, it is because of “stupid” ministers such as Housing and Local Government Minister Nga Kor Ming that the economy is performing poorly, Akmal said in a statement on Facebook.

“Back in Najib Abdul Razak’s time, we did boycott campaigns but the economy still improved. “To the unwise Nga Kor Ming, the economy is deteriorating because there are ministers like you. Stupid!” he said. Yesterday, Nga posted on X saying that local workers have suffered due to the boycotts called for by irresponsible parties.

“Never fall into the trap of instigators, our country needs the efforts of all parties to develop the national economy,” he said. Attached to his post was a screenshot of a Chinese media report which highlighted the hardship of local workers allegedly affected by business boycotts.

Akmal has called for a boycott against KK Mart over the “Allah” socks issue and against cosmetics entrepreneur Aliff Syukri’s products after the latter’s Hari Raya video was deemed disrespectful of the sanctity of Ramadan.


Last month, images of socks bearing the word “Allah” being sold at KK Mart’s Bandar Sunway outlet went viral on social media, triggering an uproar. KK Mart immediately apologised to all its customers, particularly the Muslim community, and halted the sale of the socks.

Patma : Akmal, if you are not so stupid, why are you not being appointed to a more senior position in the state government? The fact is that stupid people like you not even qualify to contest in parliament seat.

Harimoo : Dear Akmal, Nga is the Housing and Local Government minister. What about the ECONOMY minister whose job it is to manage the economy, MITI whose job is to realise investments and the FINANCE minister whose job it is to manage finance? Please try to talk some sense. PMX if you are going to give Zahid a free pass in letting this small boi continue the way he is then count your days as PM

This is what being hurt really feels like By Mariam Mokhtar

Malaysiakini : COMMENT | Youth and Sports Minister Hannah Yeoh said it was “very painful” to hear former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad questioning the loyalty of the non-Malays. She was also hurt when Muar MP Syed Saddiq Syed Abdul Rahman, described DAP as an Umno-Baru “lapdog”.

Trying to explain to the politician our suffering, in a way that communicates exactly what we are experiencing, can be a hopeless and difficult task.

Some people may be articulate, but the very young, the elderly, or those who are tongue-tied will have no hope of making their MP or state assemblyperson understand what they are going through, simply because they do not have the words. While Syed Saddiq’s concerns about Malaysia’s future are justified, he merely mentioned a fraction of our suffering. When in opposition, the Pakatan Harapan coalition promised change, but today, the promises are but a distant memory.

Failure to rein in extremists

Our votes gave them Putrajaya, and while we’re not stupid to think that reforms will happen overnight, we are alarmed by some of Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim’s actions.

The Islamic Development Department retained a more prominent role and a bigger budget. Why? The Islamisation process of dress codes, perceived Allah insults in shoes and socks, crosses that “convert people”, boycotts and institutionalised voyeurs are crippling the nation.

The threat of the “Green Wave” limited our criticisms of the Madani administration, so we accepted the best of the worst, unlike our neighbours down south, who are led by only the best.

Anwar’s rude and uncompromising tone when addressing Indian students with legitimate concerns about education quotas contrasts sharply with his demeanour when addressing the terrorist Hamas and his delayed action in censuring the rabble-rouser Dr Muhamad Akmal Saleh.

Umno Youth chief Dr Muhamad Akmal Saleh

“Anak Melayu anak saya. Anak Cina anak saya. Anak India anak saya. Anak Iban atau anak Kadazan, mereka semua anak saya,” (Malay children are my children. Chinese children are my children. Indian children are my children. Iban or Kadazan children, they are all my children - Big Fat Lies) are rendered meaningless.

Anak Hamas and anak Melayu became Anwar’s only children.

The Madani administration failed to rein in the extremists and racists, as seen in the Allah socks and shoes scandal. There is foot-dragging for overhauling the entire education system including the religious schools, including tahfiz schools. Anwar allegedly made backroom deals with Umno-Baru, to form a coalition government, and that, we find hurtful.

Aristo : So true. The NM never trusted Anwar but still gave him a chance to prove them wrong. Unfortunately he proved them right and betrayed their trust. Like they say a wolf in sheep’s clothing. He doesn’t has what it takes to be a PM for all Malaysians. Too many weaknesses.

He has formed a cabinet that is clueless and incompetent. To get the ministers to even think out of the box is a major task. What the NMs see in this country is just sadness, disappointments and hopelessness after his one and a half year in office.

WhiteLlama4337 : Anak Hamas and anak Melayu became Anwar’s only children - absolutely brilliant summation on Anwar the 'intellectually challenged' by Mariam

Man on the Silver Mountain : The writing was on the wall when Jakim was affirmed in increased budget allocation instead of being reviewed to curb its abuse and wastage. We thought maybe Anwar needed to reinforced his Islamic credential, so ok. But obviously, it didn’t stop there.

I could understand the rather matter of fact response to the Indian girl, I would do the same to explain something I thought was so obvious. On hindsight, his response seemed to be tinged with hardness for the young girl. Inner feeling shows in our reaction even unconsciously. Did he has a thing with Indians, one may think.

Then there was the roadshow to see Erdogan, which was ok, but Hanniyeh, it was not. The latter is an outcast, Anwar should be extra cautious, unless again, his inner feeling says it’s his heart desire. The hurt is when you fail to be PM for the people, and not just to the Malay Muslims. If the non-Muslims feel they do not have a place in your heart, what there is left to hope in you? Please prove me that I am wrong.

apanama is back : What Green Wave? Anwar Ibrahim is laying the foundation for Green Wave, gradually. By the way, the current situation in Malaysia is as follows: "Anak Hamas and anak Melayu became Anwar’s only children."

Whatever his actions are about the two ‘anaks’. Nothing else. The rest are just talking. Look at the allocations in the budget. His pandering of ‘anak Melayu’ is ongoing at the expense of other ‘anaks.’ This is what I observed for the last 17 months.

PAS condoles Hamas leader who lost sons, grandchildren in airstrike

Malaysiakini : PAS has extended its condolences to Hamas leader Sheikh Ismail Hanniyeh, whose three sons and two grandchildren were killed in an airstrike on the Al-Shati refugee camp in northern Gaza yesterday.

“This ruthless and vengeful attack epitomises the arrogance of the Zionists who were condemned by Allah. Nevertheless, such acts will never dampen the resolve of Palestinian fighters in their quest to liberate the al-Aqsa Mosque,” said PAS president Abdul Hadi Awang.

“May the family members of Sheikh Ismail Haniyyeh be granted the status of martyrs and be able to intercede in the hereafter with the permission of Allah SWT,” he added.

Meanwhile, Bernama reported that the Malaysia Consultative Council of Islamic Organisations (Mapim) condemned the Israeli military strike on the first day of Hari Raya.

Spratyls888 : 500,000+ killed in Syria – silence.

377,000+ killed in Yemen – silence. 5,400,000+ killed in Congo - silence. 236,000+ killed in Afghanistan – silence. 500,000+ killed in Sudan – silence. 300,000+ killed in Iraq – silence

17,000+ killed in Gaza - extreme outrage. Why is that? PAS why only support Palestine? What about the above Muslim brotherhood? And Hadi, did you condemn HAMAS for their barbaric act on Oct 7? Hadi why are you silent on sock-gate?

Rajawan : Silence for the conflict in Syria, Yemen, Congo, Afghanistan, Sudan and Iraq because cannot blame the Jews.

Kajang pigeon : I heard that Tuan ib is sharpening his keris and is all dressed up like zorro… he is currently looking for a horse but so far he has only found a donkey called Hadi

FuguPuffer : Let's not forget who started this? Every action has its consequences. Now Gazans are suffering because Hamas was too arrogant to think they could hurt its enemy.

Spratyls888 LIST OF MAJOR KINGS OF ISRAËL (of the 39 who reigned) Saül David Salomon Jéroboam Baasa Zimri Omri Jéhu Shallum Ménahem Peqah Osée LIST OF MAJOR KINGS OF PALESTINIANS (of the 0 who reigned)

Newday : So what? Your point?

Spratyls888 : Palestine never existed… There has never been a nation of Palestine. There was no Palestinian organization until 1964 and no Palestinian cause until 1970. The PLO led by Arafat began the movement of radical Islamic terrorism that exists to this day.

Arafat's men murdered Israeli athletes at the 1972 Olympics in Munich, Germany. The Arabs living in Gaza are indigenous to Egypt. Those living in the West Bank are indigenous to Jordan. There is no indigenous Arab population to Israel. The Israelis are not colonizers. There is no "occupied" Palestinian land.

When Palestinians refer to the illegal occupation, they are referring to the entire state of Israel. Palestinians led by Hamas to this day say that their firing of rockets at Israel will end when Israel ends the occupation. What this means is that Palestinians will stop waging war as soon as Israel ceases to exist.

Peace is defined as every Jew vacating the land and allowing Arabs to control 100% of it. THE TWO STATE SOLUTION HAS BEEN ON THE TABLE BEFORE. THE PALESTINIANS HAVE REJECTED IT EVERY SINGLE TIME.

Anwar reaches out to Hamas leader, slams ‘coward and insolent’ Israel

Malaysiakini : Anwar Ibrahim launched a fresh salvo against Israel following the airstrike which killed Hamas leader Sheikh Ismail Hanniyeh’s three sons and two grandchildren on the first day of Aidilfitri.

In a statement this evening, the prime minister said he contacted Ismail this afternoon to express his condolences and reiterate Malaysia’s undivided support for the Hamas leader’s family and the people of Palestine. “The loss of innocent lives, especially children, under tragic circumstances is difficult to accept,” he added.

Anwar said Malaysia condemns and censures the “insolent Zionist Israel regime for perpetrating genocide on Palestinians”. “This disgusting attack proves that the Zionist regime is not interested in a ceasefire as demanded by the UN Security Council and will not adhere to international laws.

“This brazen attack wipes out any hope towards a peaceful solution based on humanitarian principles and human rights will continue to be trampled upon,” he added. Anwar said Malaysia reiterates its call for the international community to take stern action and hold Israel to task over this cruel act.

He added that the international community must work towards bringing peace to Palestinians, who have been suffering for the past 75 years. According to Al Jazeera TV, Haniyeh’s sons - Hazem, Amir, and Mohammad - were killed when the car they were driving in was bombed in Gaza’s Al-Shati camp. Hamas media reported that the attack also killed two of Haniyeh’s grandchildren and injured a third.

Raja Chulan : Our PMX and country should not take sides on this war between Hamas and Israel. Both parties have their own narratives and justifications in starting and continuing this war. In war there are bound to be casualties.

People on both sides will die and be injured. More than 30,000 Palestinians have so far perished since the October 2023. Hamas should have expected this or the world, including Malaysia and our PMX should have had reminded Hamas and the Maeel brother of this consequences if he started the war with the IDF.

Now it is a little too late. Maeel had sacrificed more than 30,000 Palestinians due to his own idiotic actions in October 2023. But Maeel is sitting comfortably, far away, in Qatar enjoying a luxurious lifestyle with a couple of more wives and travelling around in private jets. Palestinians must wake up and choose the right path and the correct leaders to lead them in this world.

MA : Hypocrisy at the highest level. Turned deaf towards the racial drama happening in his country where he seemly heads but so fast and vocal to scream something happening outside our shores. Good for nothing!

BlackMacaw3431 : Congratulations Anwar. With this statement you have won 80% of the Malay votes. Now you don't need the NM votes like me and my family even though we support you since the Reformasi. Goodbye PKR and DAP.

PKC : Since you are so concerned about the situation in Gaza more than in your own country, why don't you move there and be their pm? While you are at it, please take your equally incompetent hm and unity minister along too

Vijay47 : You could have been even a passable leader, Anwar Ibrahim, or so you had us believe. But ultimately, you have proven yourself a travesty of what a prime minister should be. By whatever standard you are measured, whatever angle you are looked upon, you will remain a failure lost in the delusion of being respected by the world.

Malaysia has been undergoing a surge in dangerous challenges from racial and religious extremists but you were nowhere to be seen. You were concerned only with the rice diet of your Cabinet or making seemingly impressive press conferences where fortuitously, the right questions were asked by pliant reporters.

That Bernama would sing your praises would hardly convince the world to stand up and cheer. Things had reached such a depth, your negligence so gross, that the Agong himself had to step in to remedy the vast breach caused by lawlessness. Even then you did not deign to respond, snug as you were in the failed triumvirate of “Prime Minister-Home Minster-Inspector General of Police”.

However, such is the alacrity you display when it comes to matters pertaining to your Hamas that one actually wonders whether you are the premier of Malaysia or Gaza. Your shrill sermons sound like a broken record, hardly a best-seller at that, and nobody is buying your snake-oil; particularly bewildering is why you run to Turkey’s Recep Erdogan at the drop of a fez.

How galling for you that the on-going Peace Talks include Egypt and Qatar, and not for all his strident speeches, Anwar Ibrahim. Israel the cowards? Did it never occur to you that when Hamas attacks hiding amidst women and children and the aged, the unfortunate collateral damage will be these very women and children and the aged?

Genocide, you say? If Israel had chosen that road, your Hamas and Gaza would have been a black blob on the map within hours. As Destiny has decided, Anwar Ibrahim, you now trudge far behind Lee Hesien Loong and Jokowi, with perhaps Idi Amin by your side.

BCF : Biden needs Michigan, desperately, and so he will do anything to satisfy Tlaib and her flock. For this man with no honor, no decency, all that counts is winning, whatever the cost.

Chaos in Lebanon and Syria between Islamists and Christians. It's not only Lebanon, but nearly 50 countries around the world. MSM ignores the majority of it. Christians in the middle east are the bravest human beings to live on this planet...

How A 16-Year-Old Model Married A Malaysian Prince But Her Life Turned Into A NIGHTMARE!
A Royal Marriage Gone Bad

This story happened 15 years ago. A 16-year-old model of Indonesian-American descent married the 30-year-old prince of Kelantan. Initially, the couple appeared happy despite the significant age gap.

However, just one year into their marriage, the young model ran away, sparking a major scandal in the country. And what she revealed afterward will absolutely shock you. Why did Manohara run away from her husband, and what has her life been like since then?

All praises to Singapore's speedy action in saving this young woman.

How Does the Government of Israel Treat Christians? Christian Leaders in the West Should Care

How does the government of Israel treat Christians? In the west, Christian leaders don’t seem interested in knowing the answer. They should be. Here’s the view of a pastor from Bethlehem. About time Western Christians acknowledged Palestinian Christians!!!!!

American media would never ever allow a Christian Arab to show up on tv. This conversation needed to happen 20 years ago. Millions more Christians would be alive today if it had. Finally, someone speaking for Palestinian Christians. The war on Christianity isn’t fought on the church grounds. It’s fought in the policies pushed by our own government, by major corporations and social media platforms.

Pointing out Israel’s role is considered antisemitism same as criticizing blacks. Americans need a backbone. I am an Orthodox Christian and it absolutely eludes me how most western Christians will support Jews in Israel over Christians in Palestine! It is a tragedy of sheer ignorance. One of our churches in Palestine was bombed with innocent women and children inside.

Christians around the world we can't let our brothers and sisters in Christ get slaughtered and do nothing about it...

Is there a difference between PKR and the far-right? By Commander S THAYAPARAN (Retired) Royal Malaysian Navy

Malaysiakini : “Those who are determined to be ‘offended’ will discover a provocation somewhere. We cannot possibly adjust enough to please the fanatics, and it is degrading to make the attempt.”

- Christopher Hitchens, British-American author and journalist

COMMENT | As reported by Malaysiakini, PKR vice-president and cabinet member Nik Nazmi Nik Ahmad said, “At the end of the day, we can’t outflank Perikatan Nasional in terms of playing the Malay card or the Islamic card, because we know that that is their comparative advantage in a way”. When I read this, all I could think about was the prime minister presiding over the conversion ceremony of a young Hindu.

When the current prime minister presided over the conversion of this Hindu youth, he was representing the religious reality that non-Muslims face in this country. He was not merely welcoming a new convert into the religion, he was reinforcing religious narratives. This is the main agenda of the far-right.

And this is the problem with the political discourse. Nik Nazmi says Pakatan Harapan should “not abandon its ideals and risk losing the coalition’s core supporters in an attempt to win over far-right opposition voters”.

Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim at a conversion ceremony in Klang, Selangor

This sounds good but first Harapan has to demonstrate what exactly those ideals and principles are and how they differ from what the far-right offers.

Read the article in full here.....

Just a Malaysian : As the world moves towards greater competition for limited resources and getting into AI and digital technology, our kampong mentality is counting how many eggs are going to malay and how many go to none.

Such self defeating mentality defines our psyche. Throw in religion we are turning into a moribund paralysed state. The whole nation is obsessed with how many malays are getting from our shrinking pie and how many imaginary insults the nons are throwing at the Muslims.

Such destructive unproductive mental state will impoverished the nation pushing the weaker community into serious sufferings. Maybe this is karma for being stupid.

Sealthedeal : As usual Commander excellent analysis. Sock gate was allowed to run by the alliance and the authorities. They have still not prosecuted one single vigilante and that is beyond shameful it's criminal in itself and should never be forgotten.

DAP must leverage their position to remedy it including forcing out the the current useless IGP. As to the wider issues, ask most ordinary Malays if they want the likes of PAS, PN to proscribe and prosecute ever increasing strict religious rules that govern their lives from cradle to grave and discriminate their non Muslim neighbours and in a lot of cases employers and they will tell you no way.

Anwars sickening appeasement of the right wing conservatives leads many to question his liberal credentials and his motives. Does PKR have an enemy in the camp? The average Malay wants freedom from those who profess to interpret the religion and with that control their lives.

The average Malay wants freedom and to worship according to their own rules and they don't want the likes of the grossly inflated Jakim and a myriad of other Islamic quango's breathing down their neck.

The alliance must tackle right wing religious extremism full on or lose the game. Malaysia will deteriorate into civil war before it is forced to become an Islamic state. The non Muslims will in the end revolt supported by the Chinese and the West who are dead against Islamic extremism.

So there is only one option and that is to re-enforce liberal values, dilute the powers of the Jakim and other Islamic enforcers and come down hard on extremist behaviour every single time.

If this government does not do this Malaysia will descend into chaos. Non Muslims have literally had enough of this religious nonsense played up by the unscrupulous operatives for their own selfish power grab.

MS : A confidence trickster who carefully concealed his Muslim Brotherhood/Islamist agenda under layers of reformasi gobbledygook has been convincingly outed and that is something to rejoice. But the damage he has done to accelerate the decline of a once-promising country is irreversible.

For that and the craftiness of his self-serving ways, he will remain the worst prime minister the country has had the misfortune to suffer. The damning picture of him presiding over a "Malaysiakini unmentionable" will remain an offensive reminder of his shenanigans in as much as 1MDB and Altantuya have branded the felon we know.

Muslims cannot answer this question
Wednesday, April 10, 2024
Jesus is the Way, the Truth and the Life. CHRISTIANITY IS TRUTH, BEAUTY and GOODNESS. Glory be to God the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. Amen. I believe because I know He opened my eyes to the truth on the day He redeemed me.

No matter who says what,one day every tongue will confess His God and every knee will bow. A former Muslim was once asked why he became a Christian. His response was, "In Islam, Allah wants me to die for him. In Christianity, it is Christ who died for me." They weren’t only the disciples, they were also His apostles, the chosen few who were closest to Him.

No matter what anyone says or does, JESUS CHRIST is the one and only Savior of the world. Period.

Are we descending into a police state? By R Nadeswaran

Malaysiakini : COMMENT | On Sunday (April 7), Professor James Chin of the University of Tasmania posted a worrying note on his Facebook page. Reproducing a response from X he noted: “Madani Govt is working hard to crack down on people like me

As a rejoinder, he posted a note from X which read: “In the interest of transparency, we are writing to inform you that X has received a request from MCMC (Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission) regarding your X accounts that claims the following violates (the) law of Malaysia.”

(It was a link to a video clip widely circulated in Sabah and Sarawak. The postscript read: “We have not taken any action.” Compare this with what I had to undergo when I forwarded a WhatsApp message to the MCMC on March 23. I sent a video and a screen capture of Umno Youth chief Dr Muhamad Akmal Saleh’s Facebook post showing him wielding a traditional Japanese sword. I felt these images were disturbing and that the MCMC should use its powers to remove them.

Steven Ong : We only ask that Malaysia be free from oppression and suppression , lies and deceptions. We ask for freedom, equality and justice for all Malaysians. Is this request too much for him who can do all things?

May we see freedom , peace and joy tomorrow. “The Commission collaborates closely with the police which is the leading law enforcement agency on sensitive matters involving race, religion, and royal institutions.'' Malaysia is a police state after May 1969 .

Now its getting nearer to a full authoritarian state and if one were to analyse carefully its all linked to the 3R card being enforced to hold power If one were to check the freedom, development and prosperity of that R ruled countries , they are the number one exporters of foreign and migrant workers for sending back money to support their countries.

These should not complain about their citizens being mistreated overseas but admit their failure in building the economy in their countries , instead of focusing on that R , day and night as seen in the news these days If Malaysia join them , the world would only become worst

DonGetMeWrong : No rocket science to know we have already descended to a police state. One law for MM and one law for NM. NM who touches on 3 Rs will be dealt with swiftly and decisively. As for MM, they have immunity from the law.

UB40 : The two who got arrested charged and sentence to jail term and compare with with this Umno leader did speaks volume of the "pilih bulu" syndrome. This madani government cannot be trusted anymore.

Sealthedeal : The PDRM and MCMC are biased, corrupt and Muslims. Until they prosecute the vigilantes they will be castigated.

BlueLynx2013 : PKR is a product of Umno.

AntiRacial : Yes, certainly, we are towards police state to make Malaysia one of ultra-racist and Islamic country. Don't we see that when Zakir Naik given permanent resident status, no action against Akmal and Vinoth Zamri

Dummies Dhimmi : Yes this country has two sets of laws, even though the government will say no. How many examples do you need to understand that non Malays are here principally to provide tax revenue, job opportunities and do the 3D jobs? How clearly do you want it to to made to show the laws pertaining to religion and race come swiftly to non Malays and go into slumber for the same with Malays?

Baru: PM, police's duty to quell sock-gate fires, not Agong's By Joseph Masilamany

Malaysiakini : Sarawak politicians are applauding Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar for taking the time to have an audience with Umno and DAP leaders to ease the rising tensions surrounding sock-gate.

Former PKR leader Baru Bian told Malaysiakini that it was heartening to see the king making an effort to lend his good counsel to leaders of the two parties to de-escalate the situation after three KK Mart outlets were firebombed. However, Baru said it should have been the prime minister and the police’s duty to quell the fires instead of having the Agong intervene.

“The king had to step in to ease tensions due to the inaction of the government and/or the police. The responsibility to quell such tension in the country and to prevent the situation from escalating any further is the duty of the police and the administration of Prime Minister Anwar Ibrahim,” said the Ba’kelalan assemblyperson, who was a PKR representative but now represents the Progressive Democratic Party.

“I hope our prime minister will be more forthcoming to resolve such matters because we can’t afford to have the king to step in each time such problems crop up in the country. The prime minister must act immediately before the situation worsens,” added Baru.

Yang di-Pertuan Agong Sultan Ibrahim Sultan Iskandar having an audience with Umno leaders regarding the Sock-gate issue

Umno Youth chief Dr Muhamad Akmal Saleh had instigated a boycott campaign against KK Mart after socks bearing the word “Allah” were found to be on sale at an outlet. The convenience store chain quickly apologised and recalled five pairs of socks with “Allah” on them, but Akmal pressed on with the boycott campaign to this day.

Besides being targeted with three firebombings, KK Mart’s founder and wife along with the supplier of the socks have been charged with hurting religious feelings.

Anon2000 : When you have a useless PM and a highly questionable police force, someone who cannot be threatened by them, has to step in.

Koklatia : Obviously the Madani goverment have been selectively and efficiently prosecuting the ikan bilis and dare not touch the shark. Sadly, PMX talks like a Tiger but acts like a cat. He is working for himself and "wo men e chia ren" is only for votes

GrayPigeon2115 : You are absolutely right Baru!!! The PMX did nothing about it and the useless Home Minister did nothing about it. The 2 most powerful person in the Government did not do anything about it but instead just close an eye on an Umno youth leader who create disunity, peace and harmony and get away scot-free!!! It is sooo disheartening to see this happening in Malaysia.

mosquitobrain : A dumb, blind and deaf Madani government. How to expect reform from PM X, who dare not even checkmate Umno Baru for causing chaos and anxieties. PM X, is a big flop.

GreenPony8913 : I agree with Baru Brian. It is the job and responsibility of the PDRM and the govt to de-escalate the tensions incited by 1 person. His ilks literally took on his bigotry to fire bomb 3 KK Marts. That’s incitement and seditious. He even went against the YDPA’s first advise to stop.

That’s already treasonous. He needed a second slap on his face. The YDPA must have noticed the inaction of the PDRM and HM, that’s why he took it upon himself to quell the tensions. You are all wondering why many opined the PMX is a useless and spineless individual?

He failed to get his own house in order before sticking his nose elsewhere. Frankly, who would blame Sarawak and Sabah if they insist on secession? Extremism, radicalism and racism is definitely on the rise in the Peninsular. To PMX, Malay Muslim politicians in general, be careful what you wish for.

AnginLintang : Umno is stepping on madani. This is a show of power to make Anwar look weak and Umno has succeeded. There is only one thing for Anwar to do in order to regain his dignity, that is to make sure that akmal goes to jail and get rotan.

Anwar must make akmal an example. If Anwar fails, nobody will respect him like how people, including Umno disrespected ismail sabri. Will he become ismail sabri? Madani government must prove to us all.

A few bad apples can ruin the whole basket - a tale of two cities - Look At The Names Of The Culprits, This Is The Culture Of EntitleMent

What does a company do when it loses its Food Service contract? SRS in Pune got angry and... What do you do when Meat Samosas are sold with Beef mixed in them? Cow meat is banned in Gujarat. What is the takeaway here?

This will ensure that they never ever get a contract in future. If contract was canceled there must have been a quality issue and they should have tried to improve it which is what they do everywhere in the world. You don't put stones and condoms just to vent your anger. No one will buy your product. Remember the customer is always right! They will never change.

Their institution should be banned immediately.

India Secures the Sittwe Port in Myanmar: Why it Matters

India has secured its second oversees port, the Sittwe port in Myanmar. An Indian company will now run the operations of the port. This, as a civil war between the Myanmar military junta and rebels intensifies in the country.

New Delhi and Burma had signed the Sittwe port agreement in 2008, and it took 15 years for the project to come into effect. Throughout, India has passed through many hurdles to make this deal come through. But to unlock the full potential of this port - India needs to do more. This is progress for India to run and control the Port in Myanamar. I applaud India for its expertise and innovation to make the Myanamar Port functional.

The rebels should not disrupt trade and commerce as India is committed to develop the Myanmar Port.

Migration now hits New Zealand, resulted tight VISA rules

The New Zealand government has announced immediate changes to the Accredited Employer Worker Visa (AEWV) scheme due to an increase in Migration cases. These changes aim to enhance the overall integrity of the program while ensuring that migrant workers are adequately protected.

Jacinda Ardern was a champion for the illegal immigrants in New Zealand. I love the European country,  Poland which bluntly refused Asylum and recently Poland foreign minister said that we have not a terrorist attack due to our immigration policy, no Muslims! It's horrible here. It's a struggle for us who pay our taxes.

Grooming gangs, illegal structures, not allowing non-Muslim celebration in "muslim area", victim narrative and so on...

Saudi Arabia Asks Pakistan to Resolve Kashmir Issue with India

Saudi Arabia has asked Pakistan to resolve the Jammu and Kashmir issue by holding talks with India. The message was revealed in the joint statement released after Prime Minister Shehbaz Sharif's meeting with Saudi crown prince Mohammed bin Salman.

Sharif was visiting the kingdom for his first foreign visit after taking office. While Pakistan has repeatedly tried to internationalise the Kashmir issue, India has called for a bilateral resolution that keeps foreign powers out. The Saudi statement is closer to India's position on the issue than Pakistan's. Does it mean Riyadh has picked India over Pakistan?

Can a financially crippled Islamabad afford to keep its Kashmir obsession alive?

US Leaves Pakistan In Lurch After Accusations Of Indian Ordered Killings, Propaganda Exposed

USA took a step back and refused to support Pakistan over the allegations of India killing 20 ISI assets in the country. India's neighbour had through a Guardian article levied serious allegations which have come under heavy fire.

While India called the allegations baseless, Major Gaurav Arya now decodes how it is not possible for India to carry out such an operation in Pakistan. How many subscribers are left with Guardian? They are already begging. They had a fat black nigger as an apologist for the editorial board, he used to spin for that Nigger Obama.

I got banned for commenting, calling them out! They removed the whole commenting part as they could not handle the raging truthful comments calling out the leftists.

‘TERRIFYING’: Nigel Farage DISTURBED by shock poll exposing British Muslims - '32% want Sharia law'
Tuesday, April 09, 2024
'Overall there is a much larger level of extremism amongst British Muslim communities compared to the general population.' Founder and the Executive Director of the Henry Jackson Society, Alan Mendoza, reacts to staggering Muslim poll figures.

If they want Shari'a law, then remove their British citizenship. If it makes them stateless, cry me a river. 'We're muslims in Britain not British muslims' is what they say. Stop calling them British muslims when they are the first to tell you they aren't British. The UK is not a Muslim country, if they are not happy with the British way of life then move to another country and see how you get on there.

This Muslim problem needs fixing by using whatever means it takes.Urgently.

What Taiwan needs to do to prevent an invasion by China - DW Analysis
Taiwan has voted in a new President, Lai Ching-te, who now faces the daunting challenge of reforming Taiwan’s defenses against the threat of invasion by China.

In this special report, DW’s Richard Walker finds out what incoming President Lai Ching-te needs to do to get Taiwan ready – in the face of repeated threats from China’s Xi Jinping.

In Part 1 we hear from the former head of Taiwan’s military, Lee Hsi-min, who says Taiwanese politicians have spent too much money on prestigious weapons that would be little use in an invasion scenario. Instead he says Taipei needs to go all-in on an “asymmetric” strategy, learning in part from Ukraine’s experience.

But as we discover, there are political hurdles to making that happen. And we hear from an influential US foreign policy analyst who served in the Trump administration – how a President Trump 2.0 might view Taiwan’s situation.

Part 2 explores whether Taiwan can reach out to China to reduce tensions – given that a majority of Taiwanese voted for candidates who sought a reset with China. A Chinese expert gives us Beijing’s view on the prospects. And we analyze whether there is any chance of Xi Jinping rethinking his threats.

Part 3 exposes major wildcards which could scramble Taiwan’s calculations – from a narrowly divided parliament that could be open to Chinese interference, to the vortex of US politics which is already shaping Ukraine’s chances of survival.

Including contributions from Admiral Lee Hsi-min, former Taiwanese President Ma Ying-jeou, Amanda Hsiao, Sung Wen-Ti, Elbridge Colby and Hsieh Pei-fen.
