Will Najib be the last UMNO Prime Minister and the RAHMAN prophecy fulfilled in next general election?


Coming to the end of Najib’s first year as Prime Minister, the country is bogged down with many unresolved questions and issues, including:

  1. the two missing jet engines disappearing all the way to Uruguay;

  2. the multi-billion ringgit submarine that cannot dive;

  3. the RM12.5 billion Port Klang Free Zone (PKFZ) scandal still awaiting the prosecution of “big fishes”;

  4. who killed DAP political aide Teoh Beng Hock who went willingly to Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) headquarters on July 15, 2009 and came out as a corpse the next day;

  5. when MACC will break its apron-strings to its political masters making it the catspaw of Umno/BN political agenda to declare war on Pakatan Rakyat instead of declaring war on corruption;

  6. Malaysia’s unchecked plunge down the slope of decreasing international competitiveness accompanied by avoidance of FDI and flight of domestic capital;

  7. First anniversary of Najib’s 1Malaysia slogan and concept dogged by the worst politicking of race and religion in recent years, spearheaded by none other than the Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin and Umno media Utusan Malaysia;

  8. The lack of political will to institutionalize inter-religious consultation to promote inter-religious understanding, goodwill and harmony evident from divisive and protracted controversies over the use of the term “Allah”;

  9. the difficult birth of Najib’s Malaysia.2 new economic model with the continuing and even worsening crisis of brain drain, demonstrating that Najib’s administration lacks the political will for the government transformation to win the international competition for talents needed to successful free Malaysia from the middle-income trap and catapult to a high-income country.

  10. The political persecution and trials of Parliamentary Opposition Leader, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim;

  11. the false light at the end of the tunnel for restoration of national and international confidence in the independence, impartiality and integrity of the judiciary highlighted by the 5-0 Federal Court decision on the two Perak Mentri Besar case;

  12. the escalation of Umno/Barisan Nasional conspiracy to cause the disintegration of Pakatan Rakyat and downfall of Pakatan Rakyat state governments; etc.

We have just marked the second anniversary of the historic political tsunami of the March 8, 2008 general elections which witnessed a paradigm shift in Malaysian political thinking and expectations.

What were never thought of as possible in the first five decades of nationhood have become common-place and are even in danger of being taken for granted.

All eyes and thoughts are focused on the next general elections — whether the 13th general elections will complete the process prepared by the 12th general elections for Malaysia to have a new ruling coalition in the seat of federal government in Putrajaya apart from the state government level.

The next general elections, expected in the next 18 months, will provide answers to many intriguing questions, including:

  • Whether the most famous political prophecy, RAHMAN on the first six Prime Ministers will be fully completed with Datuk Seri Najib Razak as the last UMNO Prime Minister?

  • Whether Pakatan Rakyat will end and replace Barisan Nasional as the new national government of Malaysia?

  • Can Najib’s 1Malaysia and Malaysia.2 new economic model save him and the Barisan Nasional in the next general election?

  • Can Pakatan Rakyat emerge from the many internal problems of late to become stronger, more cohesive, disciplined and purposive to rally and unite Malaysians to form a new government to achieve Malaysia’s full potential, both in terms of human and natural resources?

Time will tell.

Let all Malaysians unite with one resolve — to make the 13th general elections the great turning point for Malaysia to embark on the road of a truly united, just, prosperous and harmonious Malaysian nation where all Malaysians, regardless of race, religion or region can fully identify with and hold their heads high.

    The WILL of Heaven had given the nation the 1st PM whose spirit had also swayed the events after him. But sad to say, it ended with Hussain; thereafter a more portent spirit of greed took over and this had definitely ended the sequence. With current reaction from the Gomen, I would describe all these behaviour as suicidal to say the least. They are unable to see changes, a good leader should not only see changes but read it in advance. The current BN leadership has got that. They are hell-bent on doing what had been done 25 years ago.
    I fear they stay on and with the discovery of a new oil deposit; as mentioned by KuLi. The fight to stay on just to squander the new riches will be deadly! Of course, we have heard TDM asking YAAB to explain the where-about of Petronas’s immense revenue during his term of office.Likewise we have also sought TDM to explain the same during his term. Of course no one wanted to set a precedent by reviving history; business as usual is a safer theme. The same theory applies on PKFZ, hence the predicament of OTK. He wanted to start anew with his party but the past leaders had accepted the same philosophy under BN: no review of history. History is suppose to teach us not to repeat the wrong things but to build on the good practices. We all know that the real power of BN has decided that history should be rewritten to tell half-truths if not total lies. This has been taken to such an extent that they themselves began to believe in them. This is a repeat of history when an empire is about to commit suicide.

    Altantuya’s murder case should also be included under the list. Najib is slowly but surely demonstrating the ills that scuppered Badawi’s reign:- flip flops, lack of political will, and much rhetoric, which amounted to nothing.

  10. #10 by Jeffrey on Sunday, 21 March 2010 - 9:17 am

    Whether all Malaysians will unite with one resolve to make the 13th general elections the great turning point for Malaysia also in large part depends on whether the single majority race in this country have wakened up to acknowledge the contributions of the other races and accepted that with the majority numbers they constitute, together with other races, will accomplish in unity more for the country’s progress and propseprity to the benefit of all or will still listen to and be influenced by ‘Neo-NEP Umnoputras’ and NGOs’ like Perkasa preaching politics of communalism.

    The end for Umno rule is near alright, as it’s written in the stars and Umno think that they’re now fit to be “god” so they’re trying hard to overturn it.
    Muhajideen is waiting impatiently to be the next PM while “Hisap Putin” is waiting for his turn after that.
    It so happened in the previous GE that most of the rakyat wanted to teach Umno a lesson for their arrogant, by denying them the two third majority and it so happened.
    Some “fanatics” in Umno nowadays was so stubborn and so forgetful that they’re now resorting to “winding the clock to move backward”, as to lead BN to self destruction.
    As to what is happening to the MCA, MIC, Gerakan and the rest.
    The entire scenario are painted like pictures, right in front of us.
    One thing for sure is that unlike our jungle law, we can never ever manipulate with the “universal law “, as set by our creator.

    This guy’s flip-flops are almost as bad as Badawi’s. No [email protected] to do the right thing, reversing decisions even before they were made on GST, New Economic Model, essential subsidies, etc etc….

    He can’t control the various factions within UMNO. The vocal extremists get to form so-called NGOs like Perkasa to fight for Malay rights…and he uses the recent frogs to try and discredit the Anwar. Doesn’t UMNO have any modicum of internal brainpower to deal with Anwar ?

    He tries to meddle in the affairs of the minority BN parties but he failed miserably with MIC and MCA. So the next step is for the implosion of BN…and then the eunuch chengho will quickly claim his chinese heritage to join Pakatan.

  15. #15 by Godfather on Sunday, 21 March 2010 - 11:04 am

    After Perkasa, there is now an Organisation of Former Elected UMNO led by also-rans Tamrin Ghafar and Aziz Shamsuddin reps to champion the rights of the Malays. What these people are telling Najib is that they are not confident of his ability to champion the rights of the Malays. They want to hold on to their heritage – the right to steal. And these people will always claim that their right to steal in enshrined in the constitution….

    Please read this…….

    Najib Tun Razak is visiting a school. In one class, he asks the students if anyone can give him an example of a “tragedy.”

    One little boy stands up and offers that, “If my best friend who lives next door is playing in the street when a car came by and killed him, that would be a tragedy.”
    “No,” Najib says, “That would be an ACCIDENT.”

    A girl raises her hand. “If a school bus carrying fifty children drove off a cliff, killing everyone inside…that would be a tragedy.”
    “I’m afraid not,” explains Najib. “That is what we would call a GREAT LOSS.”

    The room is silent; none of the other children dare volunteer.

    “What?” asks Najib, “Isn’t there anyone here who can give me
    an example of a tragedy?”

    Finally a boy in the back raises his hand. In a timid voice, he says:
    “If an airplane carrying you and Datin Seri Rosmah was blown up by a bomb, *that* would be a tragedy.”

    “Wonderful!” Najib beams. “Marvelous! And can you tell me WHY that would be a tragedy?”

    “Well,” says the boy, “because it wouldn’t be an accident, and it certainly would be no great loss!”

  18. #18 by Cinapek on Sunday, 21 March 2010 - 11:31 am

    “….spearheaded by none other than the Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin..”

    Don’t be fooled by this charade. It is the classic “good cop, bad cop” routine. On the one hand, Najib know he needs to mend fences with the non Malay voters whom UMNO has discriminated against for more than 50 years and also placating international condemnation for the racist NEP policies which has destroyed FDIs into Malaysia. On the other hand, he also has to pander to the extremist rightist elements such as Perkasa. So this role is taken on by Muhyuddin.

    UMNO wants their cake and eat it.

    Surprisingly, Malays and non-Malays have not looked toward Barrack Obama for inspiration. Instead, I think Pekasa and all the renegades are quietly hoping Obama will be a one term president. Yes, racism must prevail no matter what. What changes, what reforms? The more we see, the more they stay the same.

    Everyday we talk about security, economic growth, governance, distribution and fairness etc. How come we have never talked about general cleanliness and hygiene standard? Everywhere we go, we see clogged drains, uncollected garbage and filthy eating places. We see mosquitoes, flies, cockroaches and rats everywhere. How do we control all the insect/animal transmitted diseases if we allow all these vectors to multiply unabated? Why? Is this not important enough to be included in our NKRA? I see that the PR controlled states are as dirty and filthy as any other states, sorry. I see the local authorities as hopeless as BN controlled states. If you drive between Kulim and Penang using the Butterworth-Kulim expressway and you shall see how many of those direction signs are hidden by trees and other hapazard signs put up along the way. We just don’t care. Guan Eng, please wake up; either you go look at it yourself or you make sure your local authority people do their jobs. Before we take on the greater things, let’s see whether we can make some difference at the lesser things.

    I don’t know if Najib will fufill the RAHMAN prophecyry . BUT, its clear the prophecy NEED to be fufilled., should be fufilled and possible.

    Fufilling it will mean more than just a better material future for this country. Other than just getting rid of corruption, fixing the system etc. its about claiming the pride and dignity of average Malaysian. Its about defining the Malaysian as a character of independence, open mindedness, with a responsible social conscious.

    Its about walking away from feudal systems, cynicism, defeatist, dependency, untrustworthy, weak will, self-centeredness.

    Essentially its a class war, a class war that the average Malaysian must win over a failed elite class. The average Malaysian must get to define their elites rather than have the elites define them. its not communism or socialism, its about society – that we are a society in the end with responsibilities to each other in the end, not cocooned within each and everyone of ourselves and disporportionately looking out for no 1 only.

    it is about defining the Malaysian society ourselves or we let it happen by those who are irresponsible..

    In 1988 as far as we can remember, DBKL hung colourful buntings all over KL with “88” in the lower half and other decorations in the upper portion. Some smart alec must have complained about “88” and why “88”. All the buntings’ lower portions were cut off. Some weeks later, the lower halves were sewed back. The lower halves then showed “14”. Imagined 88 symbolizing prosperity and fortune replaced with 14 which unfortunately sounds like “sure die” even in Japanese. Remember that year 1988,
    UMNO “died” and UMNO Baru was born. But UMNO went through a harrowing experience.
    This time the 1Malaysia has the “1” with a cut star symbolizing a nation cut in half. In actual fact with almost half parliament in Opposition it really means something. It is better that the 14 pointed star is shown full in all future billboards and advertisements. This may sound being superstitious but why play play?

    Malaysian History

    According to a research by Michael Chick,

    The oldest known Arab Maps called Peninsula Malaya “Barr Chin”, which translates to “Tanah China” or “Land of Chinese”.
    BTN should implement this new found knowledge into their syllabus.

    When Prophet Muhammad s.a.w. spoke about “Exotic Tanah China” , he was actually referring to Malaya.

    Another case is -Altantunya murder mystery still not solved..

    And the excerpt from Malaysiakini today below could be a pointer –
    =============================
    IGP: ‘Third party’ intervening in the police force (Malaysia kini)
    Inspector General of Police (IGP) Musa Hassan has revealed the presence of a ‘third party’ that is making demands on the police force.

    In an interview published in Utusan Malaysia’s Sunday edition Mingguan Malaysia today, Musa said the third party could be “pihak politik” (politicians) or “orang-orang tertentu” (certain individuals)

    =============================

    So who are the 3rd party-politician as mentioned by IGP Musa Hassan? Most unlikely is from Pakatan Rakyat!

    Does a ‘3rd party’ also involved ordering Chief Inspector Azilah Hadri and Corporal Sirul Azhar Umar to perform the ‘secret mission’ in Altantunya(????????????? ?????????) murder case?

    and in actions taken against pakatan rakyat leaders such as stopping their ceramah?

    Excerpt from Malaysiakini -Bahasa Malaysia version
    ———————————–

    Musa: Ada campurtangan ‘orang ketiga’ dalam PDRM -Malaysiakini

    Mac 21, 10 10:53am
    Ketua Polis Negara, Tan Sri Musa Hassan berkata, kebelakangan ini “semacam ada tekanan kepada pasukan polis, sama ada dari pihak politik atau orang-orang tertentu”.

    Menurutnya, mereka cuba memberi tekanan, mungkin kerana kurang selesa dengan tindakan yang beliau arahkan.

    “Jadi, ada juga arahan yang diberikan terus kepada pegawai-pegawai bawahan saya tanpa pengetahuan pengurusan atasan,” kata Musa dalam wawancara dengan Mingguan Malaysia hari ini.

    “Bagi saya, ini merupakan satu trend yang salah kerana dalam pasukan polis, terdapat perintah dan kawalan.

    “Yang hanya boleh memberi arahan adalah KPN kalau ikut undang-undang,” katanya sambil menegaskan bahawa Seksyen 4 Akta Polis 1957 mengatakan bahawa semua arahan dan kawalan PDRM adalah di bawah KPN.

    “Maka kalau ada mereka yang cuba campurtangan, ini boleh merosakkan polis. Kerana pada masa itu, anggota akan merasa serba salah kerana terdapat autoriti lain yang memberi arahan kepada mereka,” tegasnya.

    Musa menjelaskan, kalau ada seorang ketua yang memberi arahan, maka ketua berkenaan akan bertanggungjawab terhadap arahan itu.

    “Dalam polis, jika ketua memberi arahan yang salah, maka dia perlu bertanggungjawab terhadap arahan itu,” katanya sambil menambah bahawa tindakan undang-undang boleh diambil terhadap mereka.

    “Tetapi jika orang ketiga yang memberi arahan dan kita tidak tahu siapa mereka, kemudiannya pegawai pula menjalankan kerja yang salah, jadi pegawai saya yang akan menjadi mangsa.

    “Ini kerana kesalahan yang dilakukan, mengikut arahan yang tidak sepatutnya. Jika orang yang memberi arahan kemudiannya nafi memberi arahan tersebut, maka ia akan merosakkan pasukan polis,” tegas Musa lagi.

    Sehubungan itu, beliau berharap agar perkara sedemikian perlu dihentikan kerana pentadbiran kepolisian dan segala tindakan dan operasi dijalankan adalah di bawah bidang kuasa KPN dan pegawai atasan yang mengendalikan operasi berkenaan.

    Come the 13th GE, people will compare the achievements and progress made by Pakatan Rakyat led states and that made by BN/UMNO led states. If they find that Pakatan Rakyat led states have low unemployment and low poverty rates, ample foreign/local investments, vast employment opportunities, efficient public transport, good health care, high standard of living, a just and transparent state government etc, they will probably give their votes to Pakatan Rakyat.

    It is of paramount importance that Pakatan Rakyat led states labor hard to prepare a good report card for the 13th GE, or else they will have nothing to prove to the electorate that they are more efficient and competent than BN/UMNO.

    Yes. Peace and tranquility returned to Pakatan Rakyat after BN moles/agents left the party. These people left the party mainly because they did not get what they wanted or their proposal was ignored by the leadership. An ex-PKR member said he used his own pocket money to pay for some of PKR’s expenses, yet PKR did not give him the job. To avoid being held ransom or exploited by errant members, PKR should make clear to its members that all donations and help from them are welcome. However, there is no guarantee that they will be rewarded. Better still, if PKR can ask them to sign a declaration form at the time when they join the party. The problem of their proposal being ignored can be resolved by using the democratic weapon – the ballot box. If everybody disagrees with their proposal after the ballot box, they should not grumble anymore or hold grudges against the leadership.

    PKR is still a relatively young party and it has a lot to learn from PAS and DAP.

    On points 10 & 12 – surely its a sign of considerable desperate urgency to get a guy like Bayan Baru MP to defect from PKR, make an expose in Parliament about Opposition head (Anwar) plotting a Sept 16 power grab at Federal/parliamentary level two years ago, and then have a couple of police reports lodged against him with senior ministers braying for investigations of Anwar’s trangressions whilst ironically ignoring the fact that this kind of power grab has already been done by the ruling party at state level in Perak Assembly earlier.

    What it boils down to is BN telling Anwar that since he could propose a power grab by 30 over crossovers in Sept 16, it is OK for BN to do the same number on PR at state level in Perak but now they’re saying that what Anwar proposed for Sept 16 was illegal as result of which police reports are now lodged.

    This is very strange. This is because Anwar has expressed an intent of power grab but failed to do it. Has a person who merely declares to (say) steal another’s property committed any offence that he didn’t carry out as expressed?

    Yet based on “what you say you can do but cannot do, however I can do better” principle the BN has actually carried out the power grab in Perak.

    Yet it does not consider what it had actually done in Perak an offence though it considers what Anwar has expressed a mere intent to do but did not do on Sept 16 an offence!

    This is most strange reasoning.
