Zaid Ibrahim to attend – “Free MP Teresa Kok” parliamentary caucus inaugural meeting tomorrow


MP for Batu Gajah, Fong Po Kuan, co-ordinating secretary convening the inaugural meeting of the “Free MP Teresa Kok” parliamentary caucus in Parliament tomorrow (Wednesday 17.9.08) at 3 p.m. has informed me that Datuk Zaid Ibrahim will attend.

I phoned up Zaid from Kota Kinabalu where I am attending a Sabah DAP forum “Malaysia – Towards a New Era” and the first Minister in the nation’s history to have resigned from the Cabinet on a point of principle confirmed his concern for the incarceration of MP Teresa Kok under the Internal Security Act (ISA) and that he would attend the meeting of the proposed “Free MP Teresa Kok” parliamentary caucus.

I hope to see Barisan Nasional Ministers and MPs, as well as the Speaker and Deputy Speakers, attending the meeting to demonstrate the maturity of the Malaysian Parliament where Parliamentarians can distinguish between parliamentary and party considerations and unite on a single footing to advance the cause of a first-world Malaysian Parliament.

At the very successful DAP Sabah forum, which was attended by some 1,000 very enthusiastic Sabahans yearning for “916 sky-change”, I called on the Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi to give a categorical public assurance that he would gracefully, peacefully and democratically accept and effect a transition of federal power if Pakatan Rakyat has the support of the majority of the 222 MPs in Parliament – to tell the nation and the world that Malaysian democracy has reached a new maturity at par with first-world Parliaments where changes of government are accepted in a matter-of-fact manner based on who has got the parliamentary majority and not be the cause of panicky reactions warning or inciting chaos and unrest.

    Well done Zaid. Your courage is very much admired.

    I suspect Zaid Ibrahim will join PR when the time is ripe.

    Good people are always good, even in difficult times.
    You are great YB Zaid.
    Cheers to like minded citizens like you.

  5. #5 by yhsiew on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 7:40 pm

    Sorry to digress.

    DSAI don’t waste time to meet Abdullah since he has decided not to see you. Go straight to the king to sort things out (even if you see Abdullah, you will still have to see the king). The longer you wait the more obstacles UMNO will throw on your path (e.g. sodomy case transferred to High court). Don’t ever release the names of MPs who have agreed to crossover before you get things sorted out with the king because flip-flop Abdullah cannot be trusted!

  6. #6 by ALLAN THAM on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 7:40 pm

    It is refreshing to known that Zaid has stick to his principle by resigning over his opposition to ISA. We wish the pressure will keep mounting and result in the real reform in this law and subsequently abolishing of ISA.

  7. #7 by nyghtsky on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 7:43 pm

    In his latest statement in the Star, Zaid mentioned that he ” had failed ”

    GOD knows you have not ‘failed’ the Rakyat! In the new Malaysia, you will not fail the Rakyat!

    Kudos to your stand!

  8. #8 by john ak singgai on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 7:46 pm

    Get Zaid to join DAP or PKR immediately, this will help to gain the support of Malays and the natives of East Malysia which will help a lot in making the dream of 916 to come true.

  9. #9 by Kasim Amat on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 7:48 pm

    916 is a big joke. Where is our new PM? He is not in Putrajaya yet? What’s the holding up? Traffic jam or stomachache? We have already said Anwar was trying to create uncertainty in the country. See what happened today? We are still in power and Anwar is still trying his luck. Instead, he is now trying to change people’s focus to the ISA issue. Is that all?

  10. #10 by Anti-Monarchy on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 7:51 pm

    He is one of those 6 people who protested and rightully made good of what he spoke about. What about the rest who spoke out? When are you going to act on your words?

    To MCA Youth , where is your party being navigated to? Act and do not react.

  11. #11 by john ak singgai on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 7:57 pm

    The most important thing is we have people such as Anwar who is trying to bring something much better to us, the citizen of Malaysia. We believe that most of the citizens of Malaysia are now on his side, so, if he fails to accompilsh it today, he will certainly do it some day later………pray for him.

    I have to admit I was cynical of Zaid’s resignation when it was announced.
    But I have to salute him now, for standing firm to his principle.
    And now to confirm his attendance at the parliamentary caucus will, I hope, galvanise those MCA and Gerakan MP’s to show they are made of sterner stuff than just being the wagging dogs of their UMNO masters.

  14. #14 by john ak singgai on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 8:03 pm

    How nice If those guys from MCA, GERAKAN and SUPP are also as brave as Zaid!

  15. #15 by malaysia-united on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 8:04 pm

    Zaid, the best!!!!

    Look for yourself, our dear MPs from MCA, Gerakan, MIC, do you people feel ashame??? No face to see your ancestors after you die? No backbone? No moral, no religion, no trustworthy, no didi, no balls? No brain, no eyes, no ears, no mouth? No ‘bone breath’? Shame… shame… shame… again, shame…

    If you are not as what I mention, please follow Zaid. May Zaid teach you the right path. But sadly, I don’t think any one of them have balls…

  16. #16 by john ak singgai on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 8:07 pm

    THE ONLY MINISTER OF FIRST WORLD MENTALITY! i STRONGLY AGREE.
    VERY HARD TO FIND ANY MINISTER .
    WELCOME ABROAD ZAID!!!

  18. #18 by nyghtsky on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 8:10 pm

    This is the holy month of Ramadhan. DSAI is openly asking for a peaceful meeting to which he can present the list to Paklahhh… and this is proper protocol!

    If it is not delay tactics on Paklahhh……part, why wouldn’t he grant this instead of calling DSAI names and challenging DSAI to immediately go public with the list…

    Here’s hoping DYMM Agung, will call both of them to the Istana to review the list himself. He can immediately decide who is in fact has the majority and declare the ruling party! Then, there will be no more ‘wayang kulit’ to keep the Rakyat in suspense, and no excuse for more ISA arrest or declaration of a state of emergency!

  19. #19 by john ak singgai on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 8:11 pm

    From what I read about the statement of Zaid Ibrahim, he seems to be very close to the ideology of Pakatan Rakyat. I think he will eventually join Pakatan Rakyat. He was the only reasonable person in BN cabinet

    bolihland has had many a first since 70s but all for the wrong reason,

    and all these first are doings by Bee end’s nkp and their cronies.

    But there are also many from brave and righteous individuals and child of an oppressed nation

    we have people like zaid ibrahim once in a while but many who are kidnapped by the enforcers as claimed by the botak and some lead elsewhere to prevent close proximity with head hunters.

    Historically gallant people always rise and stand out from the crowd through their fair deeds and just reasoning in dire times such as our nation …which sadly has been under house arrest since 70s . Coincidentally all such people in bolihland belong to the other side of the divide of our governmental system.

    Strangely there none such people’s heros from the bee end side..not even close that worth a mention at all.

    Except for extravanganza and glamorous and pretentoius deeds and make beliefs such as the recent penumpang space ,,er some called them astronuts and these two had made themselves the clown of the nation.

    Of course only master clown can give award clown titles and only in burtajaya.

    It would be good for him to join PR but let us not jum the gun.
    Even if he does not join PR he will still be the first minister to have resigned for a noble cause.

    Lets hope you’re right pulau_sibu Says,
    Zaid did mentioned ‘Open mind?’ but also added
    he did not know PKR’s well enough to make a decision and received no offer yet. I believed PKR leaders ought to share with him the Vision of PKR, perhaps this would help him decide.

    I thought the whole affair has been conducted well by DSAI.
    I too, cannot wait however, – I do buy the reasons he talked about:
    1) Unlike BN who behave like [email protected]#$s, DSAI is demonstrating the true gentleman’s ethics of ‘Informing” the inevitable to come.
    2) Security is paramount!, DSAI says, agree? Absolutely!!! we do not want a sudden arrest of the entire PKR, do we?
    3) To give Bodowi just one more chance, join PKR? but allow him to finished his unfinished projects that are democratic, fat hopes? Don’t know.
    4) You can add on.

    Having said that, its certainly putting all of us in a precarious position – In that, when should we go all out to shout….YES!YES!YES!! Merdeka 916!!!! 916 will be remembered as a symbolic date only. May take days or weeks. Thats fine by me. Or even next GE, I’m still ok.

    Above all, Keep the faith. Is this close!! Can’t let devil’s make us think otherwise. Steady, slowly but surely, Merdeka!!! 916!!!

    He knows that he is fighting a cronically ill AIDS government. Better jump off the sinking Titanic. Also, the infighting within Ameno is reaching it’s climax like never before with so many usurpers and suitors popping up.

    I read with great pain & anger the news from the Malaysian Insider ‘Kidnappers murder schoolgirl, torch body and demand ransom from family’. Why do we hear such crimes happening so often in Malaysia? BN always boast of having a fine police force in Malaysia. What a big joke! While police cannot totally prevent crime, the main reason I am so angry is that our police are NOT doing what they should be doing. Instead of crime prevention, they waste our Rakyat’s money serving their political masters.

    Do they really deserve Bonus when they are not doing what they should do? They only know ISA, ISA & more ISA….

    Zaid Ibrahim is not fit to be a Minister as he failed to defend government’s action and I would say he did not understand his own responsibilities at all. He is a Minister of Law but does not understand the Law. UMNO does not need him if he is so afraid of using ISA. One must understand that ISA is by no mean a crime by itself and the key is how you use it. The government has used it at the appropriate time to remove threats and prevent further social disability. All races must respect each other and should be sensible in making comment about each other’s culture, and not forgetting the special rights accorded to the Malays under the Constitutions. If these rights are being threatened, then the person responsible must be taken to task. We should not let event like 13 May happen again. Zaid, I wish you all the best.

  51. #51 by AsalUsuLMalaysia on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 9:35 pm

    PM AAB is under a state of siege with his adversaries questioning his transition plan It was reported that he spent 4 hours on Friday with his deputy, and that must be about party matters.

    PM AAB has been placed in a position where he could only await outcome of events. He would not have approved of the ISA arrests had he been consulted. His Home Minister Syed Hamid has publicly stated three different versions on who ordered the arrests. AAB is too afraid to take a stand on the ISA arrests now. If he ordered the release, his adversaries in the party would claim that AAB gave in the pressure from the opposition. That explains the reason why he would rather accept Zaid’s resignation than going against people who were waiting for him to act.

    Najib has now revised his stand on the UMNO presidency transition plan. He used to agree jointly with AAB that the change over should be in 2010. After meeting AAB last Friday he said he would accept the decision of the grassroots. So, instead of guiding the grassroots to agree to the 2010 dateline, he now signals that the grassroots are free to bring forward the date.

    It is a forgone conclusion that AAB loses the Presidency of UMNO comes December 2008. It is most unlikely that he would retain his position of PM by then. If he agrees to meeting with Anwar, and to work out a smooth transfer of power, then he would no longer be PM, but will be leader of the opposition come next meeting of the parliament. He could of course ignore the request of Anwar, and await the outcome of Anwar meeting the King. PM AAB would still have the option of dissolving the parliament with the King’s approval when he no longer enjoys the majority support in the House.

    It is most unlikely that AAB would retain the authority to organize the new election like he did in March 2008. TDM has applied to return, and he will be a member of UMNO by Thursday. TDM would become the Chairman of a newly mint presidential council Abdullah might still be the care taker PM, but under the guidance of TDM, the President, who might not include him in the Council. Barisan Pakatan will be defeated in the coming election not because the people will not vote for them, but the voters turn out show 120%. Mukriz will be the next PM, with free guidance from TDM. UMNO is saved and safe again. But AAB will not be a PM long before December 2008.

    AAB can choose to meet Anwar, and arrange for a smooth and peaceful transfer of power. He can also choose to be unceremoniously kicked out of his position.

    Dear Kasim,
    You are surely a product of the ‘divide & rule’ of the Ketuanan Melayu (but the biggest beneficiary are the UMNO elites). So sad you are still having this kind of mentality. Remember they practice IRS; they Infringe on others religion, rights, when people Resist, someone in their group will become the mediator to resolve the problem, then they Self-praise themselves being the patriotic group who puts national interest above their own. Go to hell with these people.

    They are all MALAYSIANS showing tremendous courage in face of an oppressive regime and setting as a clear example how Malaysia can progress as one, united as Malaysians from multi racial origins.

    When Datuk Zaid met the media and expressed how he tried to talk to the politicians about the law and how they could not be bothered, I wonder if our Barisan Nasional government really cares at all. They send soldiers overseas to do peace keeping missions. They send help missions to devastated areas around the world. But back home, they do not care about if they mistreat their own kind using the ISA. Indeed, what’s the point of keeping someone who knows how to use the law in a correct way and yet refuse to listen to him ? Just for show as usual ? Just to show to the foreign dignitaries that Malaysia knows about the laws ( but refuse to use them correctly ) ? There are highly educated politicians in the Barisan Nasional and yet they shut their ears and minds up. Why should they be so educated in the first place ? Just be the stone age people and may be we can still understand their uncivilized ways. Voters of Malaysia. Is this what you all want to see in your government ? Oh yes. We are still in the month of Ramadan.

    I am totally shocked to learn through someone who wrote in his blog that there are quite a numlber of CHRISTIAN MPs in Barisan National. I strongly charge them to read Psalm 1: 1-3 to night and I urge everyone of them to be present in the parliament tomorrow to do what is right in the eyes of our God.

    Psalm 1 :1-3
    1 Blessed is the man
    Who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly,
    Nor stands in the path of sinners,
    Nor sits in the seat of the scornful;
    2 But his delight is in the law of the LORD,
    And in His law he meditates day and night.
    3 He shall be like a tree
    Planted by the rivers of water,
    That brings forth its fruit in its season,
    Whose leaf also shall not wither;
    And whatever he does shall prosper.

    &
    LKS said – I hope to see Barisan Nasional Ministers and MPs,…
    would attend the meeting of the proposed “Free MP Teresa Kok” parliamentary caucus.

    I hope they(MCA MPs, etc) also back up it up with action.
    Let hope that all right thinking MPs regardless of political affliation will attend.

    I urge you, elected MPs,
    Time to put away diffences for a common good,

    “If he has the names, he should show the entire country. Everyone wants to know,” Abdullah said in Kepala Batas, Penang today.
    The prime minister added that he would not meet Anwar.
    Abdullah said he would only meet Anwar if the opposition leader revealed the names of those he claims are supporting him.” — malaysianinsider report.

    Phak Lah’s childish attitude shown in his words means that he deserves no pity when he is kicked out. He shows none of the graciousness that Anwar has showed him.

    Since that is Phak Lah’s respond, Anwar can go ahead and show the names, not to Phak Lah, but directly to His Majesty The King. No point showing them to Phak Lah and give him the chance to arrest more people or send them for another agricultural study trip.

  82. #82 by john ak singgai on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 10:13 pm

    why not Anwar or YB LKS try to persuade Abdullah, Khairi and their gangs to jump over to PR, appoint Abdullah as Senior Minister or Cabinet Advisor , then PR will be stronger and the racist group will definitely keep their mouths shut as well. I think Abdullah is very much better than some of the idiots in that RACIST GANG.

    Is Zaid the only dissident in BN/Umno? I hope not. Fence sitters make up your minds and be part of making Malaysia a better place for yourselves and children. Place your country destiny above your immediate own interests and show the rakyat your voices of protest and dissent tomorrow.

    Why is the PM so afraid to meet Anwar if he is so sure that the latter doesnt have the numbers to form the next fed govt. If PM is so convinced that Anwar is bluffing this is the best opportunity for him to expose Anwar false bravado and rubbish his claims. Or as usual PM is talking in his sleep.

    alphoti Says
    I am so angry is that our police are NOT doing what they should be doing. Instead of crime prevention, they waste our Rakyat’s money serving their political masters.

    _______

    The police force at one time was so trustworthy and respected until the rise of the great evil mamak Mahathir. He singlehandly turned the police force into a goon squad and politicise them.

    I can remember during the 60s the police force would regularly roamed in neighbourhoods in their Alfa-Romeos to check on crimes.

    Nowadays you don’t find them around except escorting politicians and VIPs around, attending BN-sponsored functions and patrolling high-class enclaves. They have turned themselves into a social escort agency and a mafia-informer establishment where crooks are warned beforehand whenever there are any raids being planned. As for the rakyat where got time?

    The rot started during Mahathir’s time whereby he overlooked police indiscretions in exchange for their service and loyalty.

  86. #86 by Kasim Amat on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 10:18 pm

    Call a spade a spade. Anwar is nothing but a liar. I mentioned countless times that 16 September is a big joke and it could never happen. However, all supporters of PR believed this false hope and carry it with their livings everyday. I can understand how bad the feeling is when some one gave you a fantastic hope and it just diminishes. This is the reality of life. UMNO will never fall so as BN. Anwar had failed all of you terribly and most importantly he had lost the trust and confidence of the people. Therefore, call a spade a spade is what I can summarise from today.

    Mr Khairy is laughing aloud because someone has lost the bet miserably. What is Anwar going to do? Is he going to resign as agreed? I don’t think so.

  87. #87 by just a moment on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 10:19 pm

    Therefore, those who are not in Pakatan, you will never know this faith as the Pakatan Ideology believe, we are under 1 nation and this nation is called Malaysia which formed on 16-Sept-1963 and who the nationality are from Malaysian who want this nation to become a developed country in term of economy, social and culture….and this nation called Malaysia that practice a true democracy…. and with this we need Pakatan Rakyat who will strive for these achievement as we believe Pakatan Rakyat Ideology is for 1 nation and 1 Malaysian…..

    Hidup Pakatan Rakyat, PKR, DAP, PAS….

    To all ‘right thinking leaders’ in bn,

    I do hope that you are reading this because I believe at this point of time a lot of things would be crossing your mind as to whether to quit bn or not; whether you are doing justice to the people whom have entrusted their hopes & aspirations upon & whether the time is now!

    It has been more than 50 years of being together in bn; a lot of trials & tribulations; good times bad times have already passed & we are where we are today because of all that has happened in this ” relationship”.

    Whether it has been a good 50 years or a not so good ones, the fact is that the past is the past, nothing can ever change it BUT what is far more important is the NOW and the FUTURE!!!

    Can we collectively do something about it & effect a major change in our political scenario; afterall look & listen & more importantly feel the pulse of the people who want a change for a better tomorrow for themselves as well as their chidren!!!

    This is history in the making………
    Do you feel the compulsion to play a meaningful role for the future of the country & to those whom believe in you to chart their course!!

    Yes, indeed it is a very tough decision because a lot is at stake; your career, your very own future, whatever that you might lose & all those that you have been enjoying may just dwindle away……

    But, many if not all, I believe are well-prepared for any eventually as you indeed have been enjoying the “goodness” all this while & now is just to “sacrifice” a little bit of it!

    Literally, there is a Chinese saying, ” Short term pain Long term gain”- You may ”suffer” a bit now, but the gain is not just for yourself but that of your children & those whom believed in you will be so enormous that after all this is over, you will sit back & tell your grand-children of the role that you have played to bring about a CHANGE that is so YEARNED for right now from the rakyat!!

    Please do ponder this over & over again, if you feel that you have not been playing your role as have been entrusted upon, let me say that the TIME IS RIGHT NOW to vindicate the past & stand up for the HOPE of a better tomorrow!

    The rakyat needs you most RIGHT NOW, will you still show them that you care & give them back the trust that they have upon you since…………..?!

    PLEASE…………DO STAND UP & BE COUNTED FOR!!

  109. #109 by Anak Msia on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 10:47 pm

    as this is just a beginning as only loser will think that today is a failure….
    For all Pakatan Rakyat supporters who are writing here, we have 1 common goal, we have 1 hope, we have 1 ideology, we have 1 country and we are all Malaysian who would like to see the country matching towards democracy …………

    As mentioned this is a beginning, after Pakatan Rakyat fighting many years and 1st Tsunami on 308 and 2nd Tsunami in PP 826 and 916 is the Tremor day which….. every second, every minute, every day and every month, Pakatan Rakyat as said by DSAI “lawan tetap lawan”, “lawan pagi”, “lawan petang”, “lawan malam”, ….and Pakatan Rakyat will continue to “lawan” and…we will “lawan” in next GE13 and …this is spirit that will bring all the Pakatan Rakyat together…as we believe 1 nation for 1 Malaysian …..

    I agree with the writer who said that Malaysians now want change and even if Anwar fails this time round, the mould has been broken or rather some will say the chains of oppression and racism have snapped and most people now realise that we have been cheated for too long.

    and i still paying my roti canai telur 1.50 ….so it is going to reduce to 1.20 after petrol price drops…..

    Nobody asked Anwar to set any deadline for him to take over the government but he was just too arrogant and could wait to do it. What a shame now. I would urge all of you not to waste too much time posting in this blog. If you consider yourself a good citizen, then don’t ask what the country has done for you but ask yourself what have you done for the country. Those who kept insulting me any my comments in this blog will face serious consequences eventually. Before I leave, PLEASE DO NOT ASSUME YOU ARE THE GOVERNMENT NOW AND THEREFORE CAN TELL US WHAT TO DO!

    We should retain the ISA and abolish legislation like the Printing Presses & Publications Act. The ISA should be amended to allow for safeguards like judicial review and more.

    The world is still fighting Islamic religious extremism. We want also to be able to put the looney fringe of our society in detention to await trial.

    The new ISA must be renewed every two years by Parliament or repealed if not renewed.

    I salute Datuk Zaid Ibrahim for his stand on opposing the ISA law. Malaysia BN politician always compare this law to USA. US only used it for terrrorist which I support fully using this kind of law but not on civilian. Lets free TERESA KOK!!!!!!! Don’t dream that GERAKAN or MCA god will be there supporting as they are all useless person who only acting only by barking on issue recently.

    So what the country has done for us that U dare to ask us what we have done (more) for the country?

    undergrad2: How could you justify the use of isa for the petty use of detaining the so called Islamic religious extremist? IMHO these are just people flexing terror under the disguise of islam,as islam doesnt advocate extremism. Everyone has the right for a free and fair trial regardless if they are terrorist or not.

  138. #138 by Kasim Amat on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 11:43 pm

    Yes, ISA is supposed to be used against terrorist. In Malaysia, there is hardly any terrorist so you can’t compare it with the US. In Malaysia where Malay and Muslim are the majority, any action or comments infringing the rights of Muslim and the Malays should be considered as serious as committing an terrorist act. Therefore, ISA needs to be used but it has to be used carefully of course. In the recent incidents, I do not find the ISA to have been abused.

    Finally, our MPs have made the right choice to stick to the BN’s family. Congratulation to BN and together, let’s build a better Malaysia for all.

  139. #139 by Rose Fashion on Tuesday, 16 September 2008 - 11:47 pm

    “Kasim Amat Says:

    Today at 22: 18.34 (1 hour ago)
    Call a spade a spade. Anwar is nothing but a liar. I mentioned countless times that 16 September is a big joke and it could never happen. However, all supporters of PR believed this false hope and carry it with their livings everyday. I can understand how bad the feeling is when some one gave you a fantastic hope and it just diminishes.”

    Kasim, let me simplify things for you. The majority of Malaysians are suffering and are so sick of past and present abuses that they are willing to believe any promises for change. So long as there is hope Malaysians will continue what you may term as “dreaming”. If you don’t dream your dreams won’t come true.

    Not many here actually believed he has the numbers but we HOPE he has. Not many here can say for sure there will be any changes immediately but we HOPE there will be. Even less of us here believe our Yang Dipertuan Agong will dissolve parliament tomorrow in anticipation of fresh elections but we HOPE His Majesty will.

    To most Malaysians, Anwar represents this hope that there can be CHANGE. He dares us to dream that we can be one united people because if you dream hard enough your dreams can come true. It’s a long struggle and Anwar may not be with us all the way. But he dares us to take the first step and he is prepared to lead the way.

    This, Sdr Kasim, nobody can take away from Anwar. I wish him and my country all the best.

Say when you spar with him can you kindly explain to him why he is not equal to his classmates who are Malays and born in Malaysia in the same year. Can you also explain to him your defination of using ISA fairly. I suppose it will sound something like it is fair if ISA is applied to a reporter of a crime rather the its perpetrator. It is fair if ISA is applied to anyone who you do not like because you know better. On second thought I think I would spare my son the agony of having to communicate with imbecile like yourself.

    Dear PR leaders,
    PLEASE TRY TO PERSUADE PM AAB TO JOIN PR WITHIN NEXT 24 HOURS.PLEASE, PLEASE PLEASE.
    Anyone who is close to AAb or his officers,
    Please try to persuade AAB to join PR.I personaly think AAB is a caring person. But (I think) he is under
    tremendous pressure. He is fooled by too many of his people.
    He is flattered by smarter Bn people.
    May be he is being used just as a stamp pad by these smarter BN men.Please have some pity in him over the next 24 hours.
    At least give a try.
    Just go any two PR leader and meet AAB. 6 to 8 eyes would be good.Remember, we try. It is God who determines.
    God controls the mind of ALL people on earth.
    God is ABLE to change AAB’s mind.
    But, we must try with sincerity.
    If failed, first time, give a second try (with different or same PR leaders.)Sincerity + prayers + effort/ hardwork = SUCCESS in persuading AAB/ KHAIRY.
    Remember, Zaid said,AAB tried within his constraints to listen and act
    on Zaid’s ideas/ reccomendations on judicial reform.
    I also think, AAB is a blessing in disguise.
    If TDM was still around, by now, all PR MPs would be ISAed.Please try your best to persuade AAB to join PR.
    Appoint him as the MENTOR/advisor MINISTER something like in Singapore,
    Lee Kuan Yeo.

    or Give AAB whatever post he wants in PR except PM and DPM.* Also try to persuade AAB through a PR minded professor,
    psychologist, a successful salesperson/ entrepreneur
    (like Tony Fernandes), imam, mufti, MP.

    ——————————————-
    TDM is a million times more brutal than AAB.
    TDM still has many of his people in AAB’s cabinet. I have instinct, through these peoples,
    TDM is trying hard ti ‘kill’ both AAB and DSAI at one go.
    Also, many still blindly believes in the ‘charismatic’/ satanic powers of TDM.

    UMNO youth chief said that it wants those responsible for the hype of the Sept 16 government takeover to be held responsible for wasting the people’s time, it it it does not materialise. He said “In a few hours, you will still find yourself talking to me as the education minister and you would realise how many manhours and months have been wasted on talking about the Sept 16 purported change of government.”

    What does he mean by the above statement? He means to say that people have all not been going to work, eating sleeping and fasting. Has everything come to a standstill for months just because of DSAI’s takeover. I thought for BN it was a joke so why now a serious comment. People are as jovial as ever and carrying on their lives, it is the BN people who are shitting in their pants and sweating away and most probably they are shredding all the documents and telling the press and tv that it is a big joke.

    Another hero has appeared for us. Datuk Zaid Ibrahim seems to be a man of principle and honour. We hope to see more people like him from MIC but unfortunately none.

    All political leaders should review the need to abolish the original ISA, meant to curb activities threatening national security, which had been drafted during the old communists days.

    There have been signs this act being abused by the ruling coalition and enforcement agency to suppress the opposition voice in the name of national security threat, while upholding the government in power. Human rights are violated, with MP being first detained and isolated from outside world, without examining the truthful facts.

    The whole process is not transparent:

    1. Who ordered the ISA arrests? Police head, home minister, politician? Bad influence involved?
    2. Why the home minister said he left it to the police to take action, without substantiating the charges first? And the charges are released days later, not immediately?
    3. Why robbing the detainees the freedom first, before ascertaining the evidence and facts? Do we act beased on one-sided accusations? We are not witchhunting and blaming the scapegoats, are we?
    4. Is the detainee receiving sufficient medical attention when needed? Is the personal hygiene being addressed? Is the detention cell free from disturbing insects and mosquitoes? There is no visibility from the outside world.
    5. Are the detainees criminals? The MP and journalists may be the good citizens who are able to contribute to the well-being of the nation.

    Something is not right here. No wonder the de facto law minister has already resigned.

    Following the arrest of Sin Chew reporter Tan Hoon Cheng, I received the following reports:

    1. My neighbour who suspects that her husband is having an affair has reported and requested the police to place him under ISA for his own personal safety.

    2. My father whose cat frequently fights with strays has appealed to the authority to place her under ISA for her own safety.

    6. Knickerbox, the famous lingerie shop has requested some of their lastest designs to be ‘detained’ under ISA. According to the spokesman there could not be a better place to store them for their own personal safety.

    If only the majority of the cabinet are like Datuk Zaid Ibrahim we will have a better Malaysia. Look at the Khir guy still running around when he basically played the race and religion card. Where is he at home and with his family. MP Kok is in jail because but the people like Khir and Utusan Malaysia.

    Well talk about credibility.

    PM said he is not going to dissolve parliament, and then dissolved it the next day.

    PM said after elections no petrol price increase until September, and then increased it by a staggering sum in July.

    PM said monthly petrol price adjustment, and then dropped it by 15 sen before one month was up.

    PM said Dont work for me, but work with me, but then he only sleeps.

    PM said going to catch the corrupt ones, but all the big fish still swimming free.

    He dropped it by 15 sen before the Permatang Pauh elections, but said its not because of Anwar.

    He said Anwar does not have the numbers, yet 16th Sept is a major target date for UMNO/PM…..why ah?

    HE has not been governiing and leading the country, but been busy politicking. And rakyat are sick of it. But umno is not even aware of it…….sigh!

    Cocooned from the realities of a society that has experienced large-scale and even traumatic changes, the Badawi government proved itself to be totally dislocated and clueless over what was happening.

    In time, historians like myself will have to take up our pens and write the political obituary of Prime Minister Badawi. The portrait will not be a pretty one: While this ‘man of the people’ was surrounded by a closed circle of relatives and family friends who were his confidants, Badawi seemed totally oblivious to the fate of millions of ordinary Malaysians who had to endure five years of his lacklustre non-leadership.

This piece of news is very encouraging and we MALAYSIAN really need this towering FELLOW MALAYSIAN to make MALAYSIA for ALL MALAYSIAN. We hope Datuk Zaid will continue to serve the people based on his political principle. We thank God that we still have people like Datuk Zaid and so many other like him who seriously want to change Malaysia for a better country.

  185. #185 by OldManoftheSea on Wednesday, 17 September 2008 - 8:13 am

    Badawi though not a capable leader and is not a ruthless leader. He just lost control of the governments. Just too many Ahmad Ismail/Mathathir like racist leaders in UMNO and he can’t go against them, (religion and race who can fight that?) his hands are tied as the saying goes, else he will be oust sooner. Same like Zaid Ibrahim, he says that he fails. But it was the rotten systems in UMNO not him. That is why he is out.

    And come to think of it, God put Badawi there for a purpose. Without him Pakatan would not have achieve this much. Just think about it. Once an Orang Asli church (wooden one) was demolished by the authority because of “permit” issue etc….. When this was brought up to him by Wong Kin Kong of NECF, Abdullah was so angry that he immediately picks up the phone and called the officials to reprimand them. “Why did you tear down the church? Who authorized it? I want the church to be rebuilt at our expenses.. And where once stood a wooden church now stand a brick church. Okay a side track, but just a though that God’s work in a mysterious way. There is still a sense of uprightness in him. His big liability is his stupid son in law.

    And yes, we need to pray for Teresa Kok and RPK to be released soon and charge in an open court. In the court of law everything will be reveals.

    Anti-Monarchy, don’t you know what they say about “leaving the poison for others”? They do not even believe in what they are doing. They only do unto others what they do not do to their own children – feeding them with poison!

    Besides, the grass is always greener on the other side and their children are sent overseas on taxpayers’ “scholarship” money! Indirectly, they are admitting their incapabilities and calling the rakyat SUCKERS – get local education at the lowest quality while my children, the elites, go overseas at your expense for world-class education!

    The issue of Teresa Kok’s arrest is NOT about security or religion even politics. Its about DECENCY – plain simple human right and wrong. Someone lied, someone got the facts wrong and someone acted wrongly out of weakness. The excuses are not flimsy, its a lie and everyone knows that even the cowards who have perpetrated it. They just won’t admit it.

    The fact is Teresa Kok did not do the the things they said they did. The fact is quite a few people lied about it. The fact of the matter is the excuses given by the different parties from the PM to the home minister to the police does not even sound like they are convince of the reason for it sounding apologetic with errors. Even the second reason supposedly about Jawi writing on street signs they got it wrong. She did not oppose the Jawi writing on street signs, she just said that Jawi is not part of our Malaysian language and furthermore Chinese and Tamil should be put first if Jawi is.

    This is about being on a slippery slopes of lies because those responsible are too weak to stand up for the truth and decency. Not race, religion, security or even politics.

    Teresa is quite wrong about Jawi. She may have misunderstood the position of Jawi and confused it with Arabic which is used in the Quran. Jawi IS a Malaysian Language and is 100% original Bahasa Melayu.

    Had it not been due to the British invasion of Malaya, Bahasa Melayu today would still be written in Jawi. It was romanized for the convenience of the British!

  194. #194 by ktteokt on Wednesday, 17 September 2008 - 9:53 am

    Teresa should have put her argument on Jawi by saying that it is redundant as what is written in Jawi is exactly the same as what is written in romanized Malay! Anyone who is able to read Jawi would know that what is written in Jawi on road signs is exactly the same as what is written in “Rumi” on the same signs!

  195. #195 by cheng on on Wednesday, 17 September 2008 - 10:09 am

    Correct me if I am wrong on Jawi, Jawi is a form of alphabet use to write BM before using Roman alphabet, it come from Jawa, where Jawanese borrow it from the Arab earlier to write Jawanese languages (more than 1 type). So it actually originate from the Arab.
    What we are having here, is not Arabic, but just using the Jawi (or Arabic) script to write BM.
    BM was romanized for a few reasons, for convenience of British (also the western ppl, like Dutch), for more accuracy on vowel sound for BM (Arab scrpit have only 3 basic vowels–not enough for BM), also easier for local Malay to learn English.
    Can others give more reasons?

    I must praise YB Kit for inaugurating this Parliamentary Caucus.

    For all we know not many MPs are aware of the meaning of “caucus” much less its uses and function as a mechanism to give more vivid expression to the concept of Parliamentary supremacy and separation of powers.

    Well, such a caucus drawing on non partisan participation of MPs welded together via a common important agenda of national interest and implications like the use of ISA should specially send an invitation via phone, fax, email, desptach to Home Minister Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar.

    Great, Datuk Zaid Ibrahim attends but that is preaching the evils if ISA to the converted who has already resigned as minister over its abuse.

    The Caucus should struggle for Hamid’s soul – or at least his understanding that :

    1. The ISA is best sent to dustbin of legislative history;

    2. And if allowed to remain, should be invoked in limited against against only terrorists and subversives bent on creating chaos, violence and public disorder;

    3. That before ISA invoked, police ought to have made investigations and the determination that chaos, violence and public disorder are reasonably likely occur if preventive detention of those brewing it is not otherwise ordered;

    4. that investigations referred to in 3. ought to have been launched prior to ISA invocation – and not the other way around, after ISA is invoked curbing a citizen’s liberty to facilitate investigations of 60 days whether or not there will be a reasonable cause to suspect and fear public disorder and the one detained is reponsible for that – and to release the detainee if investigations show no culpability as in reporter Tan’s case.

    Investigations should be conducted before ISA in justification of its invocation – rather than ISA being used to facilitate investigation, which is putting the cart before the horse.

    Hamid as lawyer should understand. He should be invited so that Lawyer Zaid could discuss and refresh his understanding of how the legal process should proceed.Otherwise Hamid still thinks ISA is for the detainee’s protection against harm from those bent on creating public disorder, the real target of ISA.

    Open Letter to the Minister for Internal Security and Home Affairs – YB Datuk Syed Hamid Albar

    September 15, 2008

    YB Datuk Seri Syed Hamid Albar
    Kementerian Hal Ehwal Dalam Negeri, Malaysia
    Blok D2, Parcel D
    Pusat Pentadbiran Kerajaan Persekutuan
    62546 Putrajaya

    YB Datuk Seri,

    Administrative detentions without trial of:
    Raja Petra Kamaruddin – blogger
    Tan Hoon Cheng – journalist
    Teresa Kok – Member of Parliament and State Legislative Councilor

    The arrests and detentions without trial and the circumstances leading to the same of the abovenamed three under the Internal Security Act 1960 (ISA) on Sept. 12, 2008 are a source of grave concern for the rule of law and democratic values in Malaysia. All three are reported to have been detained under Section 73 (1) of the Act for purposes for police inquiry on grounds that there were reasonable cause to believe that they were acting in a manner prejudicial to the security of Malaysia. Under the same Act they can be detained for 60 days thereafter you as Minister could sign a detention order for further detention up to 2 years which could further be renewed. All such detentions are without trial and without any form of judicial supervision.

    A further cause for concern is over the show cause letters sent to three newspapers by your Ministry to explain within one week for manipulation of sensitive issues, reporting a racially sensitive statement made by a politician belonging to the dominant political party currently in control of the government and for reporting that the present Inspector General of Police had been “paralysed” after undergoing a bypass surgery. Those notices were served on the newspapers under the Printing Presses and Publication Act 1984, a legislation for annual licensing of newspapers by the Executive.

    Obviously if their explanations are not found satisfactory by you the annual licenses issued for these newspapers would be revoked. The decision to revoke is final and under the Act cannot be questioned “by any court or any ground whatsoever”. Service of such notices leaves a chilling effect on freedom of the press.

    With regard to the arrests and detentions in the case of Raja Petra Kamaruddin, there are two charges for sedition and criminal defamation pending against him for the very news items posted in his blog. Without awaiting the trials on these charges detaining him administratively would be seen as interfering into the due process of the court and prejudging the criminal charges and could amount to contempt of court. Such detention could also be seen as preventing him from adequately preparing his defences to the two criminal charges.

    In the case of journalist, Tan Hoon Cheng, though it is a relieve that she has since been released after 18 hours of detention yet to subject her to such arrest and detention under the ISA for having recorded and reported accurately in the newspaper what is now alleged to be sensitive is beyond belief. What is of serious concern was the person who uttered the alleged sensitive remark, Datuk Ahmad Ismail, is currently under investigation for sedition. To date, it is reported that the police had not completed their investigations. Yet how in the interim the journalist who reported could be a threat to the security of the State is most puzzling. How did the police come to believe that she could be a threat to State security when the investigations were incomplete? Your clarification at your press conference on Sept. 13 that she was detained partly because of “alleged threats on her personal safety” is untenable. A country where the government has been resisting legislation to provide whistle blowers protection could resort to arbitrary detention under such a draconian legislation to provide such protection is shocking indeed.

    Why the journalist who merely recorded and reported the statement was subjected to such detention when the person who uttered the statement is still not charged under the Sedition Act is yet to be explained. Your contention is that Datuk Ahmad has been suspended for three years from his political party meant that action has been taken against him. This is most unsatisfactory. The suspension from his political party was an internal party procedure. No action as yet has been taken against Datuk Ahmad by the State for an offence against the State. In any event the fact that UMNO (the political party) suspended him must necessarily mean that what she reported was true and correct.

    In the case of Member of Parliament, Teresa Kok’s detention, you were reported to have said in the press conference that “She started a very sensitive issue with the question of the ‘azan’ and it should be stopped”. She vehemently denied these allegations from the beginning and from media reports of various persons including the mosques concerned there appears abundance of evidence to support her denial. Yet todate no action seems to have been taken against the former Chief Minister of the State of Selangor, Khir Toyo, who lost his seat and his government in the March 8, general elections. It was he who made the allegations against her which were reported in a vernacular newspaper. Should he not be investigated for the offence of false news under Section 8(A) of the Printing Presses and Publications Act 1984 if not detained under the ISA?

    The newspaper which originally published the news too may have committed the same offence. It is learnt that a police report has been lodged against Khir Toyo. What is the state of the investigations? Why detain Teresa Kok in the interim?

    These latest developments are reminiscent of what happened in Malaysia in 1987 when 106 were detained under this draconian legislation and four newspapers banned. Those detentions led in the following year to the government’s assault on the independent judiciary. It is also reminiscent of how internal dissensions within the dominant political party in power spilled over to violations of human rights and fundamental liberties and rule of law in the nation with the guardian of these values namely the judiciary severely damaged and still not recovered.

    There is something most unsettling over the conduct of the police on the investigations of the police reports lodged and the selectivism applied in the actions taken thus far.

    As I mentioned in my earlier letter addressed to you on March 24, 2008 regarding the continued detention of the five Hindraf leaders under the ISA detention without trial offend the first principle of the rule of law.

    I urge you to without delay take appropriate action to release Raja Petra and Teresa Kok from detention. I also urge you to withdraw the three show cause notices served on the newspapers

    I am copying this letter to the Chairperson of the UN Human Rights Council, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and the Secretary General of the Commonwealth in which bodies Malaysia is much involved. It is to bring to their attention the fragility of the rule of law in Malaysia and how it is deteriorating. With these developments Malaysia’s role in these bodies is tenuous. I hope Malaysia is called upon to account for the violation of the rule of law, human rights and democratic values before these bodies. The Malaysian government must be ashamed of itself. The developments must be a source of embarrassment to YB Dato Seri Mohd Shafie Aqbal who only in August was elected Chair of the EXCO of the Commonwealth Parliamentary Association.

    Yours sincerely,
    Dato’ Param Cumaraswamy
    (former UN Special Rapporteur on the Independence of Judges & Lawyers)

    Zaid Ibrahim is truly a man of principles. He also has charity in his heart, having been named one of Forbes Asia Heroes of Philanthropy for his Kelantan Foundation for the Disabled. To get a better understanding of his stance and a glimpse into the integrity of his character, I recommend reading Zaid Ibrahim’s book “In Good Faith: Articles, essays and interviews”, published last year if I’m no mistaken.

    2. Teresa Kok did not use threats to intimidate or coerce.
    3. Teresa Kok did not create a state of fear and submission.
    4. Teresa Kok did not govern using terrorism.

    By all common sense and decency, no one in their right mind finds Teresa Kok a terrorist threat.

    So, please explain clearly and precisely how Teresa Kok’s action and statement equals terrorism?

He is a Minister of Law but does not understand the Law. UMNO does not need him if he is so afraid of using ISA.

All races must respect each other and should be sensible in making comment about each other’s culture, and not forgetting the special rights accorded to the Malays under the Constitutions.

    For the truth shall sets us free!

    Happy Merdeka!

    Anti-Monarchy, don’t you know what they say about “leaving the poison for others”? They do not even believe in what they are doing. They only do unto others what they do not do to their own children – feeding them with poison!

    Besides, the grass is always greener on the other side and their children are sent overseas on taxpayers’ “scholarship” money! Indirectly, they are admitting their incapabilities and calling the rakyat SUCKERS – get local education at the lowest quality while my children, the elites, go overseas at your expense for world-class education!

    What a disgrace as the MINISTER OF EDUCATION! Perhaps he should start educating himself first – remember KEPIMPINAN MELALUI TELADAN
    ………………………………………………………………………………

    You are right!

    Oh yes KEPIMPINAN MELALUI TELADAN or is it KE”PIMP”INAN MELALUI TELADAN!

    Well Done Senator Zaid Ibrahim. U have done something which benefit our country and all malaysian citizens. And U r performing much better than all other BN chinese component parties leaders and UMNO leaders. Some of them are acted like extremist and some of others are responded cowardly and placed self interest in front of everthing.

    To Kasim Amat…..
    For me u are a stupid terrorist. So u should be arrested under ISA for whole life without referring your case to court. Nobody will be allowed to visit u in lock up except monkeys.

    Just look at the different between Zaid and Ahmad. One said and done something and respected by all Malaysians while the other gone hiding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    SAPP has the backbone to pull out of BN. As for MCA/MIC/Gerakan they are selfish and spineless lot. They only care for themselves. Just look at the “Free MP Teresa Parliamentary Caucus” campaign.
    None of these spineless guys attended and support their release from ISA.
    That goes to show the type of bums representing our rakyat.
    I hope the East Malaysian people realise that SAPP action is for their own good.
    I wish SAPP and their leaders the best for the future.

    I have to repeat again that I have full respect for Zaid and appreciate what he has tried to do for the country.
    Now on his own, I know he will try and do something good for the country especially on racial and religious issues which are tearing the country apart now. I can be sure the rakyat will support him all the way irrespective.
