Pakatan Rakyat leadership council condemns racism of Ahmad Ismail and Penang Umno leaders

Kenyataan Akhbar

8 September 2008

Pakatan Rakyat Menjunjung Prinsip Perlembagaan Persekutuan

Majlis Pimpinan Pakatan Rakyat yang bersidang pada hari ini 8 September 2008 dengan ini menegaskan penolakan kami terhadap usaha-usaha menyemarakkan politik perkauman yang sedang dilakukan oleh UMNO akhir-akhir ini. Kami amat bimbang isu ini sekarang digunakan untuk mengelabui pandangan rakyat yang sebenarnya merupakan usaha terdesak untuk menyelamatkan kepentingan segelintir golongan elit politik dan kroni mereka.

Kami sekali lagi mengulangi pendirian menjunjung prinsip-prinsip dasar yang termaktub di bawah Perlembagaan Persekutuan. Ini termasuk soal-soal dasar seperti kedudukan Islam sebagai Agama Persekutuan dan menjamin kebebasan mengamalkan agama-agama lain, kedaulatan Bahasa Melayu sebagai Bahasa Kebangsaan dan mempertahankan hak bahasa ibunda, kedudukan dan kedaulatan Institusi Raja-Raja Melayu serta kedudukan hak-hak istimewa orang Melayu dan Bumiputera serta hak-hak semua kaum yang telah dijamin oleh Perlembagaan.

Berdasarkan prinsip-prinsip Perlembagaan ini kami menolak sekeras-kerasnya pendekatan politik perkauman sempit yang menjadi dasar UMNO-BN. Pendekatan inilah yang sengaja digunakan untuk memecahbelahkan perpaduan dan keharmonian masyarakat majmuk negara ini.

Sehubungan ini kami membantah ucapan yang dibuat oleh Dato Ahmad Ismail yang disokong oleh semua pemimpin UMNO Pulau Pinang. Isi ucapan itu mencerminkan dasar perkauman UMNO yang sebenarnya bertujuan hanya untuk mempertahankan kepentingan segelintir golongan orang kaya Melayu serta suku sakat mereka yang menggunakan kuasa politik untuk mengambil kesempatan mengaut kekayaan negara dengan berselindung di sebalik membela kepentingan Bumiputera dan orang Melayu.

YB Dato’ Seri Anwar Ibrahim
Ketua Umum

YB Dato’ Husam Musa

    firstly, ask him who pays the most taxes… and where does his salary come from…

    heck, he is even worse than a “pendatang” as he needs the support of such “pendatang”.

  3. #3 by aje on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 2:31 pm

    Kita sebagai warga Malaysia patut menolak politik perkauman dari semua pihak samada dari pihak PR atau BN.Saya berharap selepas ini kita semua menumpukan kepada pembabgunan negara dan kurangkan politik.Majulah Malaysia!

    Well said. This is the truth from the heart and mind of the Malaysian public. Keep up the good works. My sincere thanks to Pakatan Rakyat for the foresight to look thru the color of our skin straight to our hearts.

    I support the motion and statement by PR. I strongly condemn the racist and corrupted Ahmad Ismail and his party UMNO.

  8. #8 by Malaysian Always on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 3:07 pm

    Alangkah sedihnya pada masa kini, masih terdapat warganegara dan ahli politik Malaysia yang menggunakan dasar perkauman untuk mendapatkan sokongan rakyat. Harapan saya, sebagai seorang “pendatang” yang dilahirkan dan dibesarkan di Malaysia, dan yang tidak mempunyai mana-mana rumah lain melainkan Malaysia, adalah supaya rakyat-rakyat Malaysia menyedari bahawa manusia seperti Ahmad Ismail ni hanya ingin menggunakan sentimen-sentimen perkauman ini untuk menimbulkan perasaan marah dan benci di hati manusia supaya dia sendiri dapat mengekalkan kedudukan dan kekayaannya yang didapati melalui cara-cara yag dosa dan haram. Saya berharap rakyat-rakyat Malaysia dapat melihati bahawa hanya melalui integrasi secara harmoni sebenar antara semua kaum-kaum berlainan dan meritokrasi, barulah negara kita dan semua rakyat-rakyat Malaysia dapat membangun dan memara ke hadapan terhadap generasi baru Malaysia yang maju, kaya dan bebas daripada politik kewangan dan kerajaan yang tidak efektif! Hidup Malaysia!

    This AI controversy presented the BN especially UMNO leaders with the golden opportunity to show people of all races that they are fair, mature and would come down hard on those who purposely create racial controversy. The chance to gain the support and respect of people of all races was simply wasted.
    I salute the PR for their determination to protect and defend the special rights of the Malays as well as the rights of the minority races as enshrined in the Federal Constitution.

    Kindly read this
    “Politically blind and tone deaf?”
    My forefathers came to Malacca in 1771. Even in August 1957, my family had been living in Malacca for 186 years. How many other Malaysians can claim this long period of residence?

  11. #11 by Laoshan on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 4:01 pm

    When Gerakan and MCA insist openly that this Ahmad Ismail must apologise personally, these selfish UMNO leaders from Penang would most likely try to turn it into a racial issue of Chinese against Malays for their own hidden agenda.

    This Press Statement come in very timely to expose them. Congratulation to Pakatan Rakyat that you have shown again to the Rakyat that you stand for all the anak Bangsa Malaysia with one voice.

    Nay, nay, nay!

    Ahmad Ismail loves all Malaysians deeply and that’s why he did not say sorry.

    “Love means never having to say you’re sorry!” (Love Story)

    And MCA, Gerakan, though making a bit of noise here and there, continue to tag along with Umnoputras. Kena slapped on the left cheek, now offering the right cheek to be slapped or cium.

    what can the RAKYAT expect from a racist “approval” PM…

    beside changing the Govt., do WE have other options…???

  15. #15 by teacher on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 4:52 pm

    This man Ahmad Ismail has no principles. He now tries to hide by blaming the reporter and saying the reporter should be shot. I suggest the reporter should lodge a report against him for intimidation.
    My grandfather migrated from his homeland and arrived in this country in 1880. Imagine Me still being called a pendatang. I wonder when did AI forefathers land here. Looking at Selangor we have a former MB whose father arrived from Indonesia not too long and he is called a bumi. This really sucks esp since my children and grandchildren are all born here. That means we have been here for 5 generations and still are lame ducks.

  16. #16 by change 4 Msia on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 4:54 pm

    This the one of the products created by BN (dominated by UMNO) for the past 51 years.
    A small group of greedy people stir up racial sentiment when their so call “right” is jeopradised.
    What is “Rakyat” in their mind is only a tool for them to make political gain and ultimately monetory gain.
    Hope that with PR in line, this will become a priority to establish a policy to curb racial & money politics. Only then we will start to see light at the end of the tunnel.

  17. #17 by zak_hammaad on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 5:00 pm

    Ahmad Ismail says that he has nothing to apologise for as he only stated a fact of history that “Chinese are immigrants”. BUT, does being an “immigrant” who is a CITIZEN does deserve equal rights as all citizens of Malaysia?

    I think Ahmad has nailed the UMNO coffin firmly shut.

    Our PM said that the deragotory remarks of Ahmad Ismail was his (AI’s) personal view and not that of UMNO. What about all the Divisional leaders who surrounded him and supported him when he gave his press conference. Were they too very expressing personal views or that of UMNO Pulau Pinang.
    This incidence clearly shows the “lame-duck” authority our PM has. These Divisional leaders are too powerful and there is nothing PM or his Deputy can do anything about it.
    I am saddened that our beloved country is going down the drain. I hope September 16th (or anytime after that) can clip the feathers of these warlords.
    God Bless Malaysia

    Betulkah UMNO jaga maruah orang Melayu atau sebaliknya?

    GEORGE TOWN (Sept 2, 2008): The Penang Development Corporation is lodging police and Anti-Corruption Agency reports against a now-defunct company, of which Umno Bukit Bendera division head Datuk Ahmad Ismail was a director, over its failure to return some RM500,000 to the state after a failed land deal.

    Chief minister Lim Guan Eng said he has directed the PDC to make the reports tomorrow (Sept 3) after his administration found that Popular Profile Sdn Bhd (PPSB) had wrongfully taken and kept the money from the state in 1998. PPSB wound up in 2005.

    Ahmad is currently at the centre of a storm over the alleged racist remarks he made during the Permatang Pauh by-election, which had in recent days attracted numerous police reports filed by MCA, Gerakan and DAP grassroot leaders.

    Speaking at a press conference at InvestPenang here today, Lim said PPSB, with Ahmad as director, had bought a 4.2ha industrial land in Bukit Minyak from PDC for RM5.5 million in 1997.

    The company placed a 20% deposit totalling RM1.1 million on May 9, 1997, but was unable to pay the full amount later. It subsequently asked for the agreement to be cancelled and the money refunded on May 30, 1998. PDC agreed to return 10% while the remaining 10% was to be forfeited.

    “But the 10% that was to be returned should have been payable to Perbadanan Usahawan Nasional Bhd (PUNB), the body that had financed the purchase, not to the company,” Lim said.

    Noting that PPSB did not then pass the amount to the bank, Lim said PDC had to then fork out an additional RM500,000 to be paid directly to PUNB to get back the title for the land.

    Lim questioned why the state did not pay the amount directly to the bank.

    Please lock …Ahmad Ismail into a cage please. He’s endangering the society.

  22. #22 by tenaciousB on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 6:15 pm

    Wake up malaysians and understand what is going on in our country. 49 MP’s flown to taiwan on peoples tax money! This is atrocious. BN is doing it to preserve its governance, to salvage itself from being dethroned on whose account, the people of course.

    How does it feel when the money you pay the government is used to fund its corrupted ways and to preserve its corrupt ways from being challenged.

    Time for an imminent change, dethrone the BN!

    Sekarang punya dunia tidak seperti dulu, mungkin hanya segelintir pihak cuma pentingkan kedudukan sendiri sedangkan posesi mereka tidak lagi stabil serta dah goyang melainkan cari jalan mengbangkitkan isu perkauman supaya rakyat berbilang bangsa berlawan antara satu sama lain. Dunia yang terbuka sekarang telah pun dilihat jelas oleh rakyat malaysia yang berpengaruh luas dan tidak mungkin lagi dipengaruh oleh Umno.
    Pilihanraya dan serta by-election yang lepas adalah tanda yang lebih jelas bahawa rakyat malaysia berbilang kaum sebulat suara mengizinkan PR meneruskan perjuangan untuk generasi yang akan datang. BN akan diperkebumikan bawah tanah selama-lamanya.
    Malaysia telah diselamatkan oleh kelahiran PR dan terus menguasai sehingga menjadi negara yang terkuat diseluruh asia tenggara.

    it was reportedi n ntv 7,@ 7pm primenews showing the supporters of this ahmad tearing off the poster picture of koh , and asking other bn component parties to sack gerakan from bn. hello mr.koh, if you have any principle left in you as a person and a party leader, quit la bn. next the gutter politics of ahmad and supporters will probabaly burn your effigy. sicko ahmad.

    the tearing off the picture of mr .koh is a total insult to him and gerakan. what will abdullah badawi as the prime minister and chariman of bn gotta to say this time. gosh, what an insult and rude behaviour of this ahmad and gang. time for the law to take its cause. oophs, what law. will najib apologise again ? will abdullah badawi say it was a callous mistake and not to be repeated.

  37. #37 by ADAM YONG IBNI ABDULLAH on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 8:02 pm

    dear devilmaster,

    sorry sir, you are absolutely wrong. hindraf is never a danger to malaysia. hindraf merely stating their appeal for their sufferings to be addressed by the government. hindraf members are labourers and estates workers by large and had and has been marginalised . this ahmad is a filthy rich state assemblyman who called the chinese ” squatters “. hindraf never called anyone squatters, nor tore any pictures of any leaders. this ahmad supporters tore up mr. koh ‘s picture in full view of the press. can you guess who is behind this ahmad?

  38. #38 by jus legitimum on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 8:04 pm

    The police is absolutely double standard.The AI and his monkeys are still let loose.They should now be locked up before further damage is done.

    Time is running for Pakatan Rakyat to remove the racist parties to be end the corrupt government as claimed by Tun Dr M in HardTalk invterviewed lately.

    It is pointless for all DAP, PAS and PKR politicians in Pakatan Rakyat to voice loudly, shout, talk big and keep talking baseless or criticised their enemies in BN but no actions to improve the current political situations in Malaysia.

    “916” is the People Power Reformation D-DAY for Pakatan Rakyat to take over the ligitimate power.


    Makkal Sakti ! BN lost another MP in Sabah – Pakatan Rakyat needs 29 MPs to crossover on 916 now. So why wait ?

    Count Down 9/8 to 9/16 (8 Days To Go For Malaysia Freedom Day ) EEEE HAAA !

  42. #42 by Xiao He on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 8:48 pm

    Mr Lim,

    In paragraph 2:
    … serta kedudukan hak-hak istimewa orang Melayu dan Bumiputera serta hak-hak semua kaum yang telah dijamin oleh Perlembagaan.

    If one looks into our federal constitution carefully, article 153:
    there is absolutely no mention of this special rights of Malay (hak istimewa orang Melayu), there is only special “positions” of Malay (kedudukan istimewa orang Melayu)

    so, all these while what UMNO has been talking about this “special rights”, it is not even contained in our federal constitution. what is there is this “special position” (kedudukan istimewa orang Melayu)

    as to whether there is any difference between this “special rights” and “special position”, i leave it to your interpretation. but for me, they are totally different things.

    therefore, i call for an amendment to the above press statement where the word “hak-hak” be deleted in paragraph 2.

    Another news on Abdul Ismail’s press conference
    The gist literally translated the 1st 3 paragraghs –
    1) He warns the Chinese not to imitate the Jews in America to control the Malaysian politic and economy;
    2) He threatens to call Malays from all the states for mass meetings;
    3)He says the Malay emotions are high now and therefore UMNO will not let go this opportunity to unite the Malays;
    4) He says that this “squatters issue” has successfully fired up the grass root Malays emotion and therefore UMNO will not miss this opportunity to call mass meetings for the Malays in all the states.
    5) He says he will call such a mass meeting in Penang shortly.

    This is a dangerous man who is threatening the peace of Malaysian Multi racial society!

  47. #47 by sammyvellu on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 9:21 pm

    Over the past few months, all of UMNO and BN’s actions to gain publicity has apparently backfired.

    Is this deliberately engineered or is this the brainchild of PR?

    to get gerakan quit bn now is exactly falling into the trap set up by these goons. If gerakan quits, there is no more opposition to these goons to claim as the sole representative of BN in penang. KSH better can serve better by being a ‘thorn’ in these BN goon’s otherwise perfect dream. I am really sad that gerakan has got themselves into this situation.

  53. #53 by just a moment on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 9:48 pm

    YB Lim,
    I’am just wondering how much more this abuse of racial remarks
    by this ‘Thing’ be tolerated before the police act on it?
    All the evidence are there to see, right from newspapers to TV.

    I won’t be surprise nothing will happen, but does this warrant
    an arrest under ISA for creating and threatening the nation’s peace?

    This is highly inflammable, was it he didn’t get a ticket to Taiwan?
    Or planned in such timing that the rest is not here to witness?
    What sort of backing would this ‘Thing’ get?

  54. #54 by dawsheng on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 9:52 pm

    We should all just sit still and do nothing! MCA said that the Chinese are offended by Ahmad Ismail’s outburst, really? Firstly, MCA do not represent the Chinese in Malaysia. Secondly, as a Chinese, I am not offended at all. Ahmad Ismail can say anything, he can call me a pig, but if he steals the Rakyat money, he’ll pay for it in jail, that is all I care.

  55. #55 by dap-for-pj on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 9:56 pm

    At this time of need. I extend my hand across party lines to support KSK. He is anyway defending our ‘maruah’ as victims of racial slur. This is the time for him to stand up to the putrajaya big bosses and be counted! Give us a good show Mr.Koh!

  56. #56 by dawsheng on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 9:59 pm

    I must advice UMNO that this is not 1969, this year is 2008. Everything you do will be properly documented and I assure you, there will be no secrets and we’ll get back to you shortly after that.

  57. #57 by gofortruth on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 10:00 pm

    Its hard to imagine that after having just met with the boss Prime Minister Badawi last Saturday who after the meeting wisely cautioned all to move away from sensitive issue, yet 2 days later the same divisional head of UMNO Abdul Ismail continues to throw another bomb shell today this time including tearing up of Dr. Koh’s picture, the former Chief Minister of Penang. What audacity and what will Prime Minister do now?

  58. #58 by dap-for-pj on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 10:08 pm

    PM is now peeing in his pants, hiding under the bed! Don’t expect him to say anything. Next I think he will blame GERAKAN, MCA and the press, except AI himself for blowing this thing up. That’s our mickey mouse pee-em style.

  59. #59 by robert wong on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 10:10 pm

    This Ahmad Ismail not only provoking the racial issue he also drag in the religious issue as well. Furthermore , he insulted the jews as well. This Ahmad is a devil re-incarnated and deserve to be cremated n trown back to hell. There are Christians , buddhist and Hindus who would fight to their death to defend thier rights also , we aint sitting ducks.

    To limkaput, someone needs to run the state and can’t afford to get involved in such political games since the general election. Otherwise YB Lim will be criticised for not spending enough time to run the state.

  61. #61 by ADAM YONG IBNI ABDULLAH on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 10:12 pm

    if mr.koh wants to stand up against putrajaya bosses, than gerakan should quit bn. period.

    mca, forget it. the whisky and puer team are no better than enriching themselves.

    let us refresh memories.

    1. what happened to the bigot teacher who utter racial slur against the indian students. KES TUTUP.

  62. #62 by rakyat_biasa on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 10:14 pm

    i think this is could be a possible trap,

    you see, Ahmad Ismail (agreesive talk) & Dr Koh Tsu Koon (agreesive defense) are under the same boss- UMNO, this could be a show they are making to make 2 races fight (in real) so it could become a chaos (or riot, which is what they want).

    tearing off Dr.Koh’s photo in public (with reporters around) just now is a act to me, this matter has not got serious enough for his supporter to express his anger to such way (they are the one started the topic anyway).
    & i am expecting to see some “angry” or “revenge” act from Gerakan tomorrow, so the planned fight will go on & it will try it best to get bigger, hopefully to involve more other (outsider) parties or citizens, then there will be chance to start a fire…

    so only 10 days left before 916 hope there isn’t any real “fire” been created by this.

    Don’t think in terms of race. Don’t buy into the process that the Ahmad Ismails of Malaysia are inviting us into.

    Think in terms of a badly brought up Malaysian insulting many other Malaysians. The offending Malaysian is not very kind. In fact, he is very cruel.

    And please forget about KSK. He is not worth it. He is not fighting for our dignity. He is fighting for his own image which has been shattered beyond repair. We can fight for our own dignity.

    Look at what KSK did to Penang and failed to do for Penang during his long tenure as Chief Minister. He even ignored his predecessor, except paying lip service to him on certain public occasions.

    He was the unintended beneficiary of Chong Eu’s Gerakan. But then, Chong Eu, for all the great politician that he is, never trusted anybody.

    It was Chong Eu who splintered the group infused in 1974. And he presided over their fractious infighting, leading to unintended beneficiaries such as KSK and Dr THN.

    Obviously Ahmad Ismail is going for broke and doing and saying things to incite racial feelings and hatred, racial violence, and racial rioting! Why no ISA against this desperado?

    Ahmad Ismail (who was a director of a now-defunct company) is hoping for a racial riot so that he does not have to return some RM500,000 to the Penang State after a failed land deal.

  69. #69 by limkamput on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 10:36 pm

    Don’t play into the racist hand. If Gerakan leaves which is what the racist hopes for, the Malays will gavitate toward UMNO. This is the last trump card UMNO is playing now. Get all the Malays and other Muslim Bumiputra behind UMNO, all BN component parties can go to Timbaktu. That is what they want – govern this country alone.

  70. #70 by milduser on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 10:37 pm

    If the BN (read Amnoo) continues its racial politics, they will have to reap its consequences. The Ahmad Ismail revolt will give the Amnoo leadership more than enough to chew for a couple of weeks and get distracted with threat of Gerakan and MCA leaving the BN. So, PR will really have a field day in the next few days! Strike when the iron is hot! Or forever keep your peace.

  71. #71 by Richardqed on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 10:39 pm

    Thanks to the inaction of the PM and DPM, this Ahmad Ismail is getting more and more absurd.

    Ahmad Ismail, based on the news report, has even asked for Gerakan to be expelled from the BN. But KohTK has been too kind and has not demanded the same for Ahmad.

    But how much kinder does Koh want to get? Is this the time for him to show he’s a “gentleman”? If he doesn’t stand up to the joker and show he’s a man, how can Malaysians expect Koh to stand up for them and make demands on their behalf?

  72. #72 by boh-liao on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 10:48 pm

    Be warned – Ahmad Ismail may be used by the BN to incite troubles which may then subsequently lead to an emergency situation and Operasi Lalang II!

    Out of curiosity, the 49 BN MPs who flew to Taiwan – did their wifes/husbands/girl or boy friends/family members go with them? Who pays for their fares and expenses in Taiwan?

    YB Lim,

    Dengan ancaman dan kata-kata melampau Ahmad Ismail, ternyata UMNO telah nazak dan akan meninggal bila-bila masa. Saya sebagai seorang Melayu merasa jijik dan hina dengan sikap AI dan UMNO yang memainkan isu perkauman untuk mendapat sokongan politik. Orang Melayi tidak akan termakan dengan permainan ini lagi.

    Saya berharap Pakatan Rakyat berdiri teguh dan cepat mengambil alih pemerintahan Malaysia, sebelum sesuatu yang lebih buruk berlaku. Saya percaya, golongan UMNO BN yang gila kuasa ini akan berbuat apa sahaja untuk meraih kembali kuasa mereka yang telah rakyat rampas kembali itu.

    Justeru saya menyeru kepada kawan2 saya, Melayu, Cina, India, Iban, Kadazan, seluruh bangsa Malaysia tercinta ini supaya jangan termakan dengan provokasi UMNO dan BN ini. Mari kita berdiri teguh di belakang Pakatan Rakyat, demi mencapai Malaysia Baru, Makmur dan Maju!

    Hidup Malaysia!
    Hidup Bangsa Malaysia!

    Kit & all fellow Malaysians,
    Time to give this issue a break. To carry on harping on the issue will only play into the hands of those who wish to destroy all progress made thus far towards non-communal politics.

    It is good for PKR to come up with a statement signed by all the leaders. Now it is time to cool things down.

    No big deal if we are called immigrants by one who is irrational with emotion. Let us peace loving Malaysians act with dignity and ignore him and others who may subsequently come out to stoke the fire.

    Be resolute and steer us towards what truly matters right now … ;)

  81. #81 by One4All4One on Monday, 8 September 2008 - 11:49 pm

    Another BLACK MARK in Malaysia’s history, made in Penang.

    This incident is morally worse than May 13.

    Here we have a person who is hell bent on creating a tragic situation which will stoke the fire of resentment and to pit the people of Malaysia against one another. And hopefully to create trouble,chaos, social upheaval and unrest of the worst possible and unimaginable kind.

    The behaviour exhibited by Ahmad Ismail and his fellow ill-advised supporters is not acceptable at all to ALL MALAYSIANS. He demonstrated an anti-social attitude which if go unchecked would surely bring the nation down the path of tension, destruction and disaster.

    May 13 cannot be allowed to repeat itself simply because Malaysia cannot afford another such calamity, and there are no reasons for one either. And we should categorically object to an reject any attempts to start one.

    The authorities must begin immediately to dissect the whole episode and analyse how it could have been allowed to progress this far. The police must act without fear and favour.

    Ahmad Ismail and his supporters must be dealt with immediately in order that their ill-intention and sabotage could be contained. It is no more a hate speech; it is a seditious, malicious, anti-Malaysian, illegal, dangerous, and unwarranted.

    This group of over-zealous and over-reacting UMNO members has to be counselled and brought back to reality. Nothing warrants their actions and reactions.

  90. #90 by FromTheOutside on Tuesday, 9 September 2008 - 12:45 am

    I usually would not condone the use of the ISA in any scenario, but all this unnecessary aggression is practically begging for it.
    I must say I’ve been following all the goings-on quite closely as of late from here in S’pore, and the Malaysia I once thought of as an alternate home of happy seclusion and enigma has evolved into that of chaos and power-struggles. I think the phrase that would best apply to Malaysians of all forms, disregarding how cliched it has become, would be: People Power. It is thoroughly refreshing to see citizens use their right of free speech to critique that which has become mundane and irrelevant in this global arena; where racial and religious boundaries are mere excuses to further divide and conquer.
    So, be it at the hands of DSAI or the next better player, I sincerely hope that Malaysia would be restored (or transformed) to a country with responsible leaders, leaders who actually put the people first, above all.
    Also, I’m not sure exactly how many of you share the sentiment of eradicating racial parties (UMNO, MIC, MCA…) as they, to me, are fodder when it comes to dealing with their so-called respective ethnic groups. You would probably need one or two MPs from the various ethnic groups to be responsible for economic/social welfare of their people. Let’s not swirl into a racial divide where people are judged by their skin colour, because I say, the more lines are drawn, the further we become from true and complete unity.

    916 is a D-Day for Anwar to honour his promises and words for Bangsa Malaysia aspiration for united Malaysian communities of all races and religions.

    916 total up to Luck Number 7 for all Malaysians to get rid of the racist, corrupt, cronies and nepotism politicians to uphold the Federal Constitutions and bring back the real Independence MERDEKA for all Malaysians.

    Believe it or Not ! 8 days count down is the most vital time boom for Pakatan Rakyat to achieve “ONE NATION, ONE BANGSA MALAYSIA, ONE JUSTICE, ONE DREAM”

    Dear YB LKS,

    The 916 issue is being hotly debated by various groups – the issue & the morality of it vs the neutral arguement & the “majority” who have had “enough” of the BN.

    First, let us agree on the “Basic” issue to “reduce” the BN majority within the “Constitutional framework”.

    If we miss 916, then it will be a while before we get another “Window” of opportunity to pursue our struggle for that “New Dawn”.

    As such DSAI & PR must find solutions to achieve that “Basic” issue to “reduce” the BN majority within the “Constitutional framework”.

    Another choice can also be considered as mentioned by
    Blogger shar101. Quote:

    “There is a third option.

    Disgruntled BN component parties can opt out of the coalition without joining PR and set up a Third Front. By doing so, BN’s mandate to govern becomes null and void whilst the sanctity of voters’ choice is maintained. At worst, UMNO becomes a minority government and it will provide the option for the Agong to invoke his powers to re-appoint a new PM or call for another GE if no suitable candidate is available.

    Granted, there will then be three factions in parliament which may appear ‘chaotic’ but it opens up the ground for more definitive debate on existing (ISA/OSA, etc) and new (DNA) laws.

    It might even create the opportunity for a unity government and/or a grand coalition whereupon national issues can addressed without fear or favor.

    Ultimately, whatever is to happen in parliament and in turn, the proper governance of this nation, it must reflect people power through their choice of people-in-power who represent the electorate.

    Post GE12, almost every political party are evolving or reforming in one way or the other, except UMNO. We, the people, must therefore allow this to continue. But unlike before, we will remain vigilant and vocal because the rules of the game have changed.

    And not because AI says it is.” Unquote.

    Niat dan matlamat UMNO sudah tercapai. Orang Cina mula marah, Orang Melayu makin terasa. Apa lagi yang diharapkan dari tindakan UMNO ini selain untuk memporak-perandakan negara kita. Harap semua dapat berfikir secara rasional. Jangan mengungkit siapa yang datang dahulu la, siapa yang bayar cukai lebih la apa yang penting kita bersatu menantikan 16 september yang akan kunjung tiba. Jika ianya berlaku janganlah ada antara kita yang menuntut yang bukan-bukan berkaitan hak kaum lain. Jaga sensitiviti sesama, cuba fahami antara satu sama lain. Jika tidak janganlah harap perpaduan akan muncul. satu bangsa minta hapuskan azan, satu bangsa minta hapuskan kawasan kubur satu bangsa minta semua bangsa lain kembali ke tanah asal mereka. Belajarlah dari sejarah, bermula 1511 Melaka dijajah walapun tamadunnya kuat sehingga Kerajaan China sanggup kekerjasama namun disebabkan pengkhianatan yang berlaku sesama rakyat akhirnya Melaka jatuh jua walapun cuba bangkit semula. Disebabkan kemajuan Melaka maka ramailah orang yang datang menumpang kasih di Melaka dahulu. Untuk pengetahuan sahabat semua zaman zahulu rumpun Melayu adalah dikawasan Malaysia ( Semenanjung tanah Melayu ), Indonesia, Selatan Filipina sehingga sekarang, ia dipisahkan akibat perjanjian Inggeris Belanda yang membahagikan tanah jajahan mereka sesuka hati. Sebab itulah apabila perpindahan berlaku hanya dari Malaysia ke Indonesia atau sebaliknya. hujah yang mengatakan bahawa inilah sahaja kawasan rumpun Melayu memang ada kebenarannya. Janganlah kita nafikan sejarah. Namun demikian dalam keadaan sekarang, janganlah kita ungkit hak bangsa lain dalam negara kita. Atas tujuan itulah, Islam tidak pernah memberi restu faham kebangsaan untuk dilaksanakan. Keadilan dalam Islam untuk semua kaum dirosakkan oleh propaganda UMNO. Agama lain bebas diamalkan tanpa mengurang sedikitpun amalan mereka. Ambil contoh di Kelantan, kerajaan negeri menjaga kebajikan untuk semua, Patung Buddha tidur terbesar, wat siam yang banyak, kuil dan tokong yang boleh dibina walaupun Bukan Islam minoriti di Kelantan sekitar 5-10 Peratus sahaja , tetapi tiada ugutan untuk melaksanakan agama mereka.

    Another sad case of ex-vernacular school student.
    If she was from a Kebangsaan school, she will be able to save herself from been detained for 11months.

    Vernacular school is not good for our children.

    Its fantastic to see that PR sees what Ahmad Ismail + gang is really up to. They hope to create enough chaos to take advantage it. Its a version of May 13, 1969 but within UMNO first. They figured that once they take over UMNO, KTK and the likes can be silenced.

    It actually is a challenge now for PR to convince BN MPs especially in Sabah and Sarawak, this is bad for all of them and PR is their only hope. There is nothing in it for Sabah and Sarawak if these groups take over. In fact, they would get less.

    Star Online today, Sept 9, 2008:

    “Gerakan should leave the Barisan Nasional ruling coalition … Bukit Bendera Umno division chief Datuk Ahmad Ismail said.”

    “Ketuanan” drama being played out, this is, isnt it? You see, once a tuan, always a tuan. And small tuan is also good as a tuan. Small tuan, big tuan they all have authority to dispel any hamba they dislike.

    So here we have a small UMNO fry telling gerakan hamba to get out. See how arrogant he is with his ketuanan authority and how arrogant UMNO is.

    Perhaps what is worse is PM didnt want to say this himself. He decided to inflict maximum embarassment upon gerakan hamba by leaving that job to that small fry. The idea is to reduce gerakan hamba to a suitably minute size.

    I wonder why the now very small koh tsu khoon still needed time to deliberate whether or not to leave bn. They should hv left 22 years ago. So too should mca and mic and all the other non-malay parties.

    UMNOPUTRAS are nep-dependant. And after a while, mca, mic and the rest became UMNO-dependant. That idiot knew this dependancy thingy. He knew very well that eventhough only a small fry, he as small tuan could still tell mca, mic and gerakan to buzz off with impunity.

    So yeh, leaving may not make good sense now. Its way too late. If salvaging oneself and one’s dignity is the desire, then I agree absolutely with k1980, lets harakiri. And may God bless their souls.

    The only race that Ahmad insulted is Malay. Malay need a better leader than that to bring them to the next level of the world stage. If Malay follow Ahmad they might just as well turn back the clock to 1960 because that is he will lead them to.

    If I am business dealing with this guy I will stop all my work and pull out of any deal I have with him.

    To Malaysian of ALL races, beware of this Ahmad Ismail! He is trying to make the matter worst by adding in Islam! Talk to the Malay friends around you, tell them not to fall into his trap!

    Shame on him! Religion issue has NOTHING got to do with him. He is sinful to create such a mess in this holy month of RAMADAN!

    Not sure if Ahmad is a leader, can’t see globally. The world is not having Malays only. Ahmad is likened to a person sets up fire in the forest and blames others for the haze! Irresponsible !

    Or is it that Encik ISA has gone to Taiwan on the study tour with the other BN MPs?

    I support kt-56’s comments, quote “Time to give this issue a break. To carry on harping on the issue will only play into the hands of those who wish to destroy all progress made thus far towards non-communal politics.
    It is good for PKR to come up with a statement signed by all the leaders. Now it is time to cool things down.
    No big deal if we are called immigrants by one who is irrational with emotion. Let us peace loving Malaysians act with dignity and ignore him and others who may subsequently come out to stoke the fire.
    Be resolute and steer us towards what truly matters right now … ;)” unquote

    Let’s ignore Ahmad Ismail. Let those quarrels be between the BN components and internal!
    I suggest that members of PR should just leave it as is since the joint statement issued is very clear.
    Moreover, the issue is now a police case and let’s sit back and observe what’s the advice that the AG will provide to the police. Let’s see if they act without fear &/or favour. This would be the best test for the judiciary and executives.

    Just because Malays Immigrated to Malaysia earlier then the Chinese and Indians, that doen’t gave them the rights to have special previlage and rights in Malaysia.
    These Malay Special rights are created by the UMNO selfish leaders like : Mahathir.
    They have cheated the Chinese and Indians to give them these rights so that they can catch-up the Malay poor economy status and now they want it permanent.
    All citizens whether Malay, Chinese and Indians pay the same amount of tax when they buy Macdonald or pay income tax.
    All humans live in only one world. the whole world knows this centuries ago and only the UMNO selfish fools are still making a fool out of their own kind by bullying the minority.

    Just as muslim ladies could be legally divorced by sms from their husbands, the 50 MPs can cross over to PR by sms-ing the Speaker Pandikar Amin on 916.

    When the opposition did very well in the 2008 elections, foreign observers talk about a wind of change in Malaysia; about how racialism had been rejected, how Anwar, their favourite would soon take over the Government.

    I had differed from these casual observers because I know that it was not rejection of racial politics which helped the opposition. It was simply disgust on the part of members of UMNO, MCA and Gerakan of the Premiership and leadership of Dato Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. Talking on the ground, this was quite obvious.

    Far from the opposition’s “win” being brought about by rejection of racial politics, it has actually enhanced racial politics. We talk more about race and racial interest than we did in the last 50 years.

    The Malays are feeling the loss of their political base and the Chinese and Indians appear to be glorifying in the new political clout. As a result, subjects which we before regarded as sacrosanct are now brought up and made to be entirely in favour of the Malays.

    Against this unfamiliar attack against them, the Malays are unable to counter. Their leaders have deserted them. In their frustration they tend to become abusive.

    jika benar perlembagaan dijunjung dan dihormati maka mulai sekarang sepatutnya DAP yang memperjuangkan Malaysian Malaysia bertegas agar penggunaan bahasa Melayu sebagai bahasa Kebangsaan, sekolah kebangsaan dan sekolah menengah kebangsaan ialah satu-satunya aliran sekolah yang menjadi usaha perpaduan dan lain-lain lagi yang diperuntukkan oleh perlembagaan persekutuan. mulakan laman sesawang, blog dan media yang menjadi ‘kesukaan’ ramai dengan menggunakan bahasa Melayu. kita lihat lim kit siang sebagai contoh!

    “We talk more about race and racial interest than we did in the last 50 years” – chedet

    Ha ha! This is true only for those living surrounded by sycophants. Racial tension had always been there and growing as the years passed. Only difference was back then it was only spoken of in the coffee shops and homes.

    Now the only difference is the local mainstream media is openly reporting racist remarks and playing up racial issues. one wonders why eh?

    Ahmad is very stubborn !!. Even our PM & Deputy is apologising on
    his behalf, he still not understanding. Really stupid and arrogant attitude. Let’s see if any stern action taken on his fellow tommorow….. ???.

    Let’s understand that if there happen to be any kind of racial clash in our country, take note that it is because of Ahmad Ismail and the Malays in UMNO (Penang).

    You understand that the Malays in PAS and PKR and DAP are NOT giving you this problem. Yes, the Malays are DIVIDED now. One belongs to UMNO and the rest belongs to Pakatan Rakyat. Get it? visit Era Kegemilangan PR
