The Warning of Ops Lalang 2


TERESA KOK, RAJA PETRA KAMARUDIN AND TAN HOON CHENG

A blogger, journalist and politician have been detained under ISA. Police said that arrest was made under Section 73(1) of the Act. I believe these arrests made due to the plan of power transition of opposition. This incident could be similar to Operasi Lalang 1987. Internal Security Act which allows for the arrest of any person without the need for trial in certain defined circumstances. Before this, ISA used to detain opposition leaders who constantly against the government.

Political analysis insisted that they worried about BN which ashamed in March 8 General Election and currently facing the threat of Anwar’s take over plan is now organising new strategies to stop Opposition’s efforts to form new federal government. BN may launch a mass arrest of the opposition leaders toward their political survival.

PM who received pressure from UMNO leaders to hand over power earlier than which scheduled in the middle 2010, forced to use this strategy to stop the political progress of opposition. The use of ISA also creates fear among Malaysia who still haunted by May 13 riots and Ops Lalang, the mass arrest to crack down opposition leaders and social activist.

ISA opposed by most of the Non Government Organisations (NGO) and human rights activist. They urge the law repealed to respect the human rights. Opposition leader Anwar stated that the use of ISA for detention without trial is totally against the human rights and labeled it as “Brutal and No Ground”.

I urge all Malaysians including Malay, Chinese, Indian, Sabahan, Sawarakians and etc. Please stay united in whatever situation and don’t provoke each other to worsen the current Nation’s condition. It’s important to calm on the sarcasm by the government to avoid the emergency ordinance that they are waiting for. I believe they are forced to announce the ordinance due to the pressure that being received so far.

Three Arrests In A Row Under Internal Security Act (ISA) Today

UPDATED ON 13 SEPT 2008 (00:22):

1) MALAYSIA TODAY EDITOR RAJA PETRA KAMARUDIN



Yesterday the Cabinet ordered the ban on Malaysia Today lifted. Today the police arrested its editor, Raja Petra Kamaruddin. The Government is using the mighty and dreadful Internal Security Act(ISA). Raja Petra Kamaruddin has been detained under the Internal Security Act(ISA) in his house at aroud 1.10pm. He was arrested with 10 police personnel who arrived at his home in Sungai Buloh.

His wife Marina Lee Abdullah received a 'notis penangkapan' of Raja Petra from Chief Inspector Azrin Abu Bakar. The stated reason of detention of Raja Petra was

"...penulis telah menyiarkan rencana-rencana di laman web memburukkan kepimpinan negara dan menghina kesucian agama Islam sehingga menimbulkan kekeliruan kepada rakyat..."


2) SIN CHEW DAILY JOURNALIST TAN HOON CHENG

TAN HOON CHENG

Sin Chew Daily journalist Tan Hoon Cheng has been arrested today under the Internal Security Act at 8.30pm at her home in Bukit Mertajam, Penang. She had been arrested for reporting Ahmad Ismail's seditious speech at a Permatang Pauh by-election ceramah on August 23 that the Chinese in Malaysia are “squatters” in the country and which resulted in a nation-wide political crisis.




3) DAP LEADER TERESA KOK



She becomes the third person to be detained under the prevention law today.

Taiwan Educational Trip or Malaysia Parliament Budget Debate?


THE ABOVE CHARTS TRACKS THE INCREASE IN THE GOVERNMENT OPERATING EXPENDITURE OVER THE PAST 12 YEARS (IN MILLIONS)

The BN Backbenchers were indeed all smiling heading to Taiwan. The Deputy PM approved the “educational trip” for them. They stressed that it was nothing wrong to go for such a trip as long as it was productive. The Parliament sitting was adjourned on Aug 29 after the tabling of the budget. It will resume with debate of the said budget on Oct 13. The Parliament was adjourned because of fasting month.

The budget for 2009 a record budget amounting to RM205.9 billion relative to RM176.9 billion which was budgeted for 2008 last year. While everyone was expecting an expansionary budget in the light of a global economic slowdown, the very substantial increase of 16.4% raises the question of the Government's efficiency and effectiveness. So there are more vital issues about budget required to be debated now. Rather than the trip to waste people’s money for the “education trip” to Taiwan, they can sit along with PR opposition MPs to argue on the people’s economic problems.

This rapid expansion of operational expenditure has deprived the country of sizable funds for development expenditure which has greater economic multiplier effects. It has also resulted in a larger than necessary deficit in our budget, which leaves no surplus for our future generation. If this trend were to continue, our economy will be certainly at the risk of collapse in the near future.

Several years back, meeting was held during the fasting month. Then, it was scheduled as “break for fasting month". Parliament used to meet on fasting month, now they are making it possible for an “educational trip” during this period but not possible for Parliament to meet to debate the budget. Which one is important? Taiwan trip or Budget Debate?

A DAY OF TERROR : SEPT 11 2001


IMAGE SEQUENCE OF UNITED FLIGHTS 175 IMPACTING TWO WORLD TRADE
CENTRE

The September 11 attacks (often referred to as 9/11) were a series of coordinated suicide attacks by al-Qaeda upon the United States on September 11, 2001. On that morning, terrorists affiliated with al-Qaeda hijacked four commercial passenger jet airliners. The hijackers intentionally crashed two of the airliners into the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center in New York City, killing everyone on board and many others working in the building, causing both buildings to collapse within two hours, destroying at least two nearby buildings and damaging others. The hijackers crashed a third airliner into the Pentagon. The fourth plane crashed into a field near Shanks ville in rural Somerset County, Pennsylvania, after passengers and members of the flight crew on the fourth aircraft attempted to retake control of their plane, which was heading for Washington, D.C. There are no known survivors from any of the flights.

Excluding the 19 hijackers, 2,974 people died in the attacks. Another 24 are missing and presumed dead. The overwhelming majority of casualties were civilians, including nationals of over 90 different countries. In addition, the death of at least one person from lung disease was ruled by a medical examiner to be a result of exposure to dust from the World Trade Center's collapse, as rescue and recovery workers were exposed to airborne contaminants following the buildings' collapse.


TWIN TOWER OF THE WORLD TRADE CENTRE BURNING

The United States responded to the attacks by declaring a War on Terrorism, launching an invasion of Afghanistan to depose the Taliban, who had harbored al-Qaeda terrorists, and enacting the USA PATRIOT Act. Many other nations also strengthened their anti-terrorism legislation and expanded law enforcement powers. Stock exchanges closed for almost a week, and posted enormous losses upon reopening, especially in the airline and insurance industries. The economy of Lower Manhattan ground to a halt, as billions of dollars in office space was damaged or destroyed.

The damage to the Pentagon was cleared and repaired within a year, and a small memorial was built on the site. Rebuilding the World Trade Center site has proven more difficult, with controversy over possible designs as well as the pace of construction. The selection of the Freedom Tower for the site has drawn extensive criticism, forcing the abandonment of some parts of the project.

No Efforts Towards Racial Unity?



From the racist teacher, permatang pauh by-election racial banners to the recently Ahmad Ismail's racial remarks against Malaysian Chinese awere very much spoilt the mood of celebrating National Day. Malaysia's unity getting worst with the several incidents may cause riots between races. Why no proper action taken on those who constantly playing racial cards in our Malaysian secular community? All this issues would have been solved with the abolishment of racial politics and more to “mix-raced” politics. All political parties and NGOs leaders need to stop divide people along racial lines and threat every citizen fairly without discrimination or intimidation. I hope federal government will act soon before the matters become out of control.

The Racist Teacher

A female history teacher from SMK Teluk Panglima Garang, Selangor, Malaysia had allegedly called Indian students in a Form Four and a Form Five class ‘keling pariah’, ‘Negro’, ‘black monkeys’ as well as other derogatory names. The teacher had also purportedly said that ‘Indians came from dogs’ and the community members were stupid and prone to thuggery and thievery. The police reports also alleged that the teacher had said that Indians were the ‘children of prostitutes’ and the community’s youths ‘did not have testicles’ on July 17 and 22, and had also purportedly beaten up some Indians students.

Permatang Pauh By-Election

Look at the picture below. What's your comment about that? Well, I’m not blaming any political party, but just pointing out why these people still given opportunity to play sensitive matters in the election campaign. Again, we have to blame the racial politics that we are having since nation’s independence.



Racial Remarks By Ahmad Ismail

Ahmad Ismail, the man at the centre of the ‘racial slur' controversy, warned Chinese Malaysians not to mimic American Jews who not only seek to control the country's economy but also its political power. Ahmad Ismail who is guilty of rank racism with his derogatory, offensive, insensitive and chauvinistic reference to Malaysian Chinese as “pendatang”, “penumpang” and untrustworthy Malaysians.

Racial politics have created numerous people such as the above racist teacher and Ahmad Ismail, and there are still a lot of people out there. Please stop it before the country is destroyed. What we need are understanding and tolerance, not hatred and confrontation. We can solve problems through proper discussions.
