Bad luck visited me last weekend.. Worst scenario ever came across. Let's see, I got pick pocketed in Seremban Reststop while on my journey from Petaling Jaya to Port Dickson. How it all happened? I seriously have no idea. The only thing I knew was, I step out from the car, few Indonesians selling stolen handphones approached me, I declined and went to toilet.. and then when I'm out and felt like buying food, the wallet is gone.
The best part? I went wallet hunting for half an hour over there like a crazy person. No police on site. Therefore, I continued my journey to Port Dickson without identifications. Worst thing to happen? Car petrol is extremely low and blinking about 2km upon reaching Port Dickson. Was praying in the car and thank God I arrived safely to make a police report.
That's not all.. I'm already depressed with losing my precious items and the police in Port Dickson did not give me my report. Instead they gave me a slip and asked me to collect it from any police station on Monday. I went to the IPD Melaka Tengah and got stucked there for an hour because they couldn't print the report out. In the end, they managed after making lots of phone calls to other police station. Lol. A real hassle..
Took lots of new pictures for my driving license...
Yeah.. special thanks to the JPN, I got free Identification card. The guy interviewed me and made my case an exception because they suspected I was charmed and not planning to lose my stuffs intentionally.
Temporary license.. LOL..
Since I got no wallet, I'm stucked with this childish and totally cute wallet.. Hehe.. Anyway, all this serves as a lesson.. Do not trust any IMMIGRANTS around you! I mean strangers!

Burglars break into his service over the weekend but the only thing they take are the CPUs of five desktop computers. Azmin had closed the service centre for two days over the week-end to concentrate his efforts on the Hulu Selangor by-election on Sunday.
The break-in was only discovered today by Azmin's special officer Najib Onn when he arrived at the centre early this morning. Azmin expressed surprise that only the CPUs were taken while all the other items, printers, fax machines, computer monitors and phones were left intact.

Saya tahu siapa anak saya. Saya yang lahirkan dia." Itu keluhan seorang ibu yang meratapi kepergian anaknya berusia 15 tahun yang mati ditembak dari belakang oleh anggota polis.
Kejadian semalam adalah insiden terbaru yang menimbulkan kecurigaan terhadap kewibawaan polis.
Lebih meragukan ialah penjelasan kilas oleh ketua polis negeri yang mendakwa mangsa, Aminulrashid Amzah mungkin penjenayah dan sebilah parang di jumpai dalam kereta mangsa.
Kenyataan itu diberi walaupun belum pun ada siasatan menyeluruh dilakukan dan mengundang satu lagi pusingan kritikan dan tuduhan bahawa pihak polis cuba menutup kesalahan diri.
Genangan air mata ahli keluarga dan sahabat mengiringi jenazah Allahyarham Aminulrashid Amzah untuk dikebumikan di tanah perkuburan Islam Seksyen 21 Shah Alam petang semalam.
Jenazah Allahyarham sebelum itu disembahyangkan di Madrasah Hidayah Seksyen 11 di sini.
Remaja berusia 15 tahun ini mati ditembak polis di Shah Alam awal pagi semalam.
Polis mendakwa kereta yang dipandu oleh Allahyarham cuba merempuh anggota polis peronda dan polis bertindak melepaskan tembakan yang membunuh Aminulrashid.
Namun lain pula gambaran yang diberikan oleh rakan Aminulrashid yang ada bersama Allahyarham dalam kereta semasa kejadian.
Dalam laporan polis ini, kawan yang sebaya dengan Allahyarham menegaskan Aminulrashid dalam ketakutan apabila terlanggar kenderaan lain dan memintas kereta peronda berkenaan.
Setelah dipintas, anggota peronda terus mengejar dan melepas tembakan yang mengena sasaran.
Aminulrashid rebah dalam kereta dengan luka tembakan di belakang kepalanya.
Saksi ini melaporkan beliau kemudian di pukul oleh anggota polis sebelum sempat melepaskan diri. Beliau kemudian membuat laporan polis di Ibu Pejabat Polis Shah Alam. - TVS
GB dah ulas di gb.fm sebentar tadi. Tak mahu dituduh "menghasut", lebih buruk lagi polis boleh menembak GB bila-bila masa, kemudian diletakkan parang di studio GB dan mereka mendakwa sebilah parang ditemui di studio GB. Dan GB mungkin penjenayah, dakwa mereka.

I was extremely sad upon learning about the incident where a 15 year old boy was shot by policemen in Shah Alam.
Based on the reports, it was about 2am and they were driving back from an all night eatery in Section 7 when they passed the police car which signalled them to stop. Obviously they refused to stop and must have sped away, which resulted in a car chase and the police having had to shoot at their tyres to force them to stop. One of them ran off leaving the other, now identified as Aminulrasyid Amzah, 15 years, in the car. In panic he must have reversed and rammed the police car.
I can accept that at 2am, it must still be dark without proper lighting. Thus, the policeman who shot him could not have seen the driver clearly to identify him as a 15 year old boy. However, I wonder if this in itself along with the boy reversing and ramming the police car justifies the cop to shoot at the driver. The fact that the policemen found a machete in the car also to me does not justify shooting the victim unless he had been swinging it menacingly to the policemen.
I am also very disturbed that there are now two versions of the incident. One, the police report lodged by the policemen and second by the victim's friend after meeting YB Khalid Samad, the PAS MP for Shah Alam. I shall leave that up to those in charge of investigations to determine what really happened. I hope the authorities will investigate, especially on the fact that the boy had claimed he was punched and kicked before miraculously running away.
I am however interested in the truth. I am happy to learn that all four policemen have been reassigned to desk duties pending outcome of investigations. No use suspending them as the force can utilise them to do paperwork and at least they are still on active desk duty that they can be called anytime for questioning, but not too close to interfere with investigations.
I would like to suggest the police to explore the possibility of appointing a third party as a member of the investigations committee if possible security wise. This will add credibility and stop all nonsensical talk that the police might try to cover up to help one of their own. At the same time, the third party must be of a totally neutral party without any interest. It could be a member of SUHAKAM or Y Bhg Tan Sri Lee Lam Thye or someone of that stature. However, it must never be a poilitican, for a politician have sides.
The police must act swiftly. The committee formed must also be transparent and inform the public every step of the way and finally its decision. The investigations, whatever the outcome, must be seen as a decision on the individual policeman or the group of four policemen. It is not in any way a referendum or reflective of the whole police force. The public must understand this, for one rotten apple does not make the whole stock go bad.
I urge everyone involved – politicians, NGOs, media and all those concerned to allow the family to grief and the committee to work. We must respect the family and not make it worse. We must respect the committee and allow it to carry out its duties. Do not turn this into a kangaroo court and pass public judgment. The four policemen and the family involved must be given a chance to tell their side of the story to the committee.
The police and committee at all times must act without fear or favour.

The refugee who created a great nation, Holy Prophet's (SA) Migration to Medina…
The infidel Quraish gathered in Dar-ul-Nadwa for consultation to defeat the Prophet (SA).
Someone suggested imprisoning him while others advised to exile him.
But they understood that imprisonment is not possible because his tribesmen and helpers would attack them and easily free the Prophet (SA).
And they knew that exile was also not a good idea because all the Arabs living around the boundaries of Mecca would be greatly influenced by his noble conduct and sweet conversation. And he might invade them (the Quraish) back with their support.
Then, Abu Jehl suggested the he should be murdered and man from each tribe should participate in that murder so that Banu Abd-e-Manaf (Holy Prophet's (SA) tribe) could not revenge back easily.
Everyone agreed with this suggestion and a youth from each tribe was appointed to do the assassination on the fixed might.
Almighty Allah apprised the Holy Prophet (SA) of their conspiracy and enjoined upon him to migrate.
At that night, when many a youth from each tribe besieged his house to accomplish their evil design, the Holy Prophet (SA) made up his mind to migrate. He asked Hadrat Ali to sleep in his bed by covering himself with his bed-sheet so that the infidels could not know that the he was not in the house.
When the Prophet (SA) came towards the gate of his house, three was a crowd of the Quraish as if it were a fair.
Holy Prophet (SA) came out of the house reciting Surah Yasin and when he reached the verse "Fa-Aghshaina hum fhaum la yubsiroon. "And (thus) We have covered them so that they seen not." prophet repeated it several time till a covering was laid upon their eyes by Almighty Allah and they could not see him while he was going out.
He straightaway reached the house of Siddiq-e-Akbar who was already waiting for him and had arranged a guide to the passage to accompany them. Siddiq-e-Akbar and the Holy Prophet (SA) came out through a window at the back of the house and went toward Thaura ( a mountain near Mecca)
Cave of Thaur…
Now both of them were staying in cave of Thaur, whereas the youth of the Quraish were still waiting for the Prophet (SA) to come of his house. At last they came to know that there was Ali in his place and it disturbed them too much. They immediately sent the messengers to all the four sides in search of the Holy Prophet (SA) and fixed a reward of one hundred camels for arresting him. Many person set out in search of him and some foot-print experts were able to reach the end of the cave, so near to them that if they had cared to see kneeling a bit inward they could clearly see them.
At that moment Siddiq-eAkbar felt grieved, but the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) said to him: "Don't feel disturbed. Allah is with us."
By the will of Allah, the searching eyes were turned away from the cave and no one cared to see kneeling toward the cave.
Even Umayyah bin Khalf, the cleverest among them, told them that his presence in the cave was not possible.
He said so because by the command of Allah a spider had woven a web at the entrance of the cave during one night and wild pigeon had made its nest there.
The Holy Prophet (SA) and Siddiq-e-Akbar remained hidden in that cave for three consecutive nights till their chasers got disappointed.
During these three nights Abdullah son of Siddiq-e-Akbar used to come, passed on them the news of the Quraish, he used to listen during the day time, and used to return to Mecca before dawn. His sister Asma bint Abu Bakr also used to provide them food each night. Since the Arabs were experts in recognizing the foot-prints, Abdullah had advised his slave to daily graze the sheep up to that cave.
On Monday of the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal, the 1st A.H., and the third day of their stay in the cave of Thaur, Aamir bin Fuhairah the liberated slave of Siddiq-e-Akbar, reached the cave with two she-camels for the journey to Medina. Aamir was accompanied by Abdullah bin Arqalit, who was engaged on payment to guide them to the route. The Holy Prophet (SA) mounted on the one she-camel while Siddiq-e-Akbar rode the other one. Siddiq-e-Akbra asked Aamir bin Fuhara to ride behind him for service. Abdullah bi Arqlait led them to guide them to the way.
Arrival at Quba…
There from the Holy Prophet (SA) reached Quba, asuburb of Medina. Eversince the Ansar (The Helpers) and heard about the arrival of the Holy Prophet (SA) they used to go out of their locality daily to welcome him. That day, as a routine, they had also come back after waiting for him, but suddenly they heard someone saying: "He, who was being awaited, has come." When they were the Holy Prophet (SA) coming, they were all jubilant and welcomed him enthusiastically. The Holy Prophet (SA) and companions stayed at Quba for fourteen days. During these days, the Holy Prophet (SA) laid the foundation of a mosque at Quba. While building it, the Holy Prophet (SA) himself worked with others. And this is the first mosque in the history of Islam.
Since the trustworthiness of the Holy Prophet (SA) was well recognized even by the infidels, most of them used to keep their valuables with him as a trust. At the time of his migration, the Holy Prophet (SA) had left Hadrat Ali behind, in order to return the valuables, kept with the Prophet (SA), to the persons concerned before migrating to Medina. Hadrat Ali complied with the prophet's instructions and then joined him at Quba.
The Muslims of Mecca, who had arrived and taken refuge some time before in Yathrib, hearing that Muhammad was at Quba, came out to meet him there. The Ansars, who had made their compact with him in the preceding year, also came forward to greet him and to renew their pledge of fidelity.
Having obtained from his converts a confirmed report of the Yathribis favorable disposition towards him, Muhammad entered Yathrib on Friday, the twenty-second of September in the Christian era of 622. From the time Muhammad entered Yathrib, his disciples renamed it as Madinat al Nabi, the city of the Prophet (SA), abbreviated to Madina, a name by which we shall refer to it in future.
Holy Prophet's Entry in Medina…
It was Friday of Rabi-ul-Awwal, when the Holy Prophet (SA) departed from Quba for Medina. On his way the Ansar were joyously and enthusiastically walking around the she-camel he was riding. A number of them were accompanying the Holy Prophet (SA) on their own beasts. Everyone was trying to have the honour of holding the reins of his dromedary. Each and every one desired from the core of his heart that the Holy Prophet (SA) were his guest. The women and children were reciting the poems of joy and happiness. When he reached near the houses of Banu Salim bin Auf, it was time for Jumuah Prayer. The Holy Prophet (SA) got down of his she-camel offered the Jumuah prayer and again mounted his dromedary. On his route, everyone standing before his own house requested the Prophet (SA) to honour him to be his guest, but the Holy Prophet (SA) replied: " My dromedary be left alone: She is appointed by Allah Almighty. She will stop of her own where she is ordained to stop." The dromedary, therefore, kept moving on till the houses of Banu Adi bin Najaar, the parental tribe of the Holy Prophet's (SA) mother, were before them. Here the dromedary sat down in front of the house of Abu Ayyub Ansari. So the Holy Prophet (SA) was the guest of Abu Ayyub, in whose house Prophet (SA) stayed for a fair period of time.

Karpal Singh, peguam mendiang Teoh Beng Hock mempertikaikan campur tangan pejabat Peguam Negara mengenai perbuatan menghina mahkamah oleh Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Mohammad Nazri Abdul Aziz dalam inkues hari ini.
Pejabat Peguam Negara diwakili oleh Amerjeet Singh berhubung permohonan yang dibuat oleh keluarga Teoh mendakwa Nazri menghina mahkamah kerana berkata, pakar patologi Thailand, Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand telah berbohong.
Karpal berkata, "Peguam Negara tidak perlu campur tangan secara tiba-tiba dalam perkara ini kerana Nazri menyatakan beliau tidak takut menghadapi sebarang kemungkinan berhubung kenyataannya itu."
"Tindakan tegas harus diambil kerana Nazri menghina mahkamah hingga menyebabkan kes ini tergendala," kata beliau kepada para pemberita di luar mahkamah.
"Saya menentang campur tangan peguam negara dan meminta agar Koroner membatalkan permohonan peguam negara dengan serta merta," katanya lagi.
Menurut Karpal, pertelingkahan yang berlaku di kamar mahkamah antara beliau dan Amerjeet adalah wajar kerana secara tiba-tiba peguam negara menfailkan permohonan itu pada tengahari ini.
Sementara itu, seorang lagi peguam Teoh, Gobind Singh Deo yang turut hadir berkata, "pihak mahkamah mempunyai hak untuk membatalkan permohonan (peguam negara) tersebut yang tidak mengikut prosedur.
Beliau berkata,"saya meminta agar mahkamah menolak permohonan secara tiba-tiba itu dan berharap agar kes Nazri menghina mahkamah akan terus dibicarakan.
"Peguam Negara tidak perlu mempertahankan menteri yang bercakap besar yang kononnya boleh terlepas dari hukuman tentang kelantangannya menuduh Dr Pornthip sebagai 'pembohong'," tambahnya. -FMT

We saw a typical example for refugee's concept in plight of the pioneer Moslems in early years of Islam history.
I will analize about second refuge for Moslems in Al Medina (Yathrib).
Yathrib an oasis in Arabia desert, is called al-Medina or Al Medina Al Monwarah (The Illuminated City) after the immigration of the Prophet (SA), is located some (250 miles, 447 kilometers) north of Mecca on the ancient caravans' route which connected Mecca with Syria. At that time it was needed between 10 to 12 days to travel from Mecca to Yathrib on Camels.
Arabia was not governed by one authority; different city-kingdoms were ruled by various tribes. In Yathrib there were 5 Arabic tribes, 3 of those tribes, known as Bani Qainuqa, Bani Nadheer and Bani Quraidha, professed the Jewish faith (monotheists). The other tribes of the Yathrib were the Aus and the Khazraj, who practiced the popular paganism of Arabia (polytheists).
These tribes were not on good terms with one another and very often they came to fight between themselves. Aus and the Khazraj were poor but they were stronger and have more fighters than the Jewish. At that time the Prophet (SA) had contact with some Yathribians pilgrims in Mecca (A.D. 620, Aqaba) and they found in Mohammad (SA) a mediator or peacemaker in their violent quarrels and a good ruler for their city. After that they agreed to provide him and his followers a refuge and protection in their city, Yathrib.
When the Prophet settled at Medina, the tribes of Aws and Khazraj were united together under Islam and became the "Ansar", the Helpers of the Prophet.
Those who emigrated with him from Mecca received the title of "Muhajereen" or the Migrants. Thus this charter put an end to the state of anarchy that prevailed among the Arabs. It constituted the Prophet Muhammad as chief magistrate of the nation.
Another reason, which made the Hijrah or MIGRATION a very important event, is the political freedom for the Muslims.
The Hijrah or MIGRATION made the Muslims Masters of their internal affairs, external relations and matters relating to war and peace. There was great understanding among the Muslims, for instance, in case a difference occurred between the Muslims and non-Muslims, the final decision was to be made by the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam).
This was a beginning of a city-state, which, within the lifetime of the Prophet (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) or within a period of ten (10) years, expanded so as to encompass the entire Arabian Peninsula. It is thus evident that the event of Hijrah turned a few hundred persons into a highly successful society. The expansion of Muslim dominations during the following centuries is a historical record. All this was possible due to the shaping of events as the result of Hijrah or MIGRATION.
The Prophet (AS) and the pioneer Moslems immigrate to Yathrip put the bases for the great Islamic state that continued for 1296 years from A.D 622 until A.D. 1918, remarked geographical as the vast state extend from China in the West to Spain in the East.
Also it started the Islamic calendar.
All that started with immigrate of some refugees from one place to another. Those refugees found shelter and protection that enabled them to build one of the greatest civilizations in our history as humans on Earth.
The prophet left Mecca while there were 12 men waiting with swords outside his house for murder him! The prophet reached Yathrib to find refuge and support with his followers. Do you think that without that refuge and support we have Islam now?
The refuge concept had big effect on Arabs behavior. The Arabs traditions regarding the refugee concept was based on the hospitality and protection for their guests.
At these old times the Arabs had special traditions to deal with the strangers when they come to their houses. At that time there wasn't hotels to use by travellers, so the guest has the right to go to any house and to stay there as a guest for 3 days without any questions and to have a place for sleep and to eat, with great respect from the host. After those 3 days the host have the right to ask his guest the normal questions, like about his name and from where he came. If the guest has problem so the host must help him whatever his problem could be, even if it require fighting.
Generosity and protection for stranger, passerby or refugee is great honour for any Arab.
The pact of brotherhood by the Prophet between the emigrants (Al muhajrian) and the (Ansaar) helpers (inhabitants of Yathrib) and the mutual assistance between the Muslims and others are irrefutable evidence that the Islamic state is built upon social justice.
The principles of truth, justice, cooperation, righteous, fearing Allah, and working together for the interest of mankind and repealing the pain and damage that the evildoers inflict upon society are the most visible principles upon which the Islamic state is established.
Each of the Ansaar helped his Muslim brother and shared the pleasures as well as miseries of life. They shared their homes and would give up half of their property and money. What social justice in the world could there be to surpass if not equal such kind of brotherhood?
The Ansar took the principle of brotherhood to heart so enthusiastically that they vied with one another to make a Muhajir their brother, and in certain cases they resorted to casting lots to decide the winner.
It comes as no surprise that history has recorded some cases, in which a man from the Ansar asked his brother from the Muhajirin to choose any one of his two wives, so that he divorced her to become free to marry to the brother from the Muhajirin. This is after the end of the legal obligatory period of probation observed by women after divorce
The economic effects were due to the permanent migration to Medina Munawwarah by the Muslims. The matchless hospitality of the people of Medina Munawwarah to the migrating Muslims, not only provided a shelter and a new peaceful home for those newcomers Moslem refugees, but the Ansars (of Medina) with a note-worthy passion of self-sacrifice accepted the incoming Muslims with great zeal and love.
When after Hijrah, the companions and the followers of Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) shifted from Makkah Mukarramah to Medina Munawwarah, trade came into contact with agriculture and artisanship resulting in an economic revolution for the place.
The migrants from Makkah having been taught and reformed by Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) himself for nearly 13 years were not carefree and irresponsible men; they were God-fearing and righteous. The Ansars helped the migrants but the latter were not prepared to accept a status of mere idle dependants; so every one of them adopted ways and means to earn righteously for their own selves and did not like to be permanent burden on others.
Initially, the Muhaajirs worked as labourers in the fields and gardens and construction works.
Later they, being traders, started small trading activities, which brought them into an economic competition with the Jews of Medina Munawwarah. One aspect of the economy revolution was that the Muhaajir traders paid the right price to the growers for their produce since Rasulullah (Sallallaahu Alayhi Wasallam) had forbidden the practice of acquiring products on reduced prices in return of loans given to the artisans or to the cultivators.
Thus, it was only after Hijrah that agriculture, industry and trade freely helped to bring about an integrated, balanced and unfettered economy for the Muslims. Thus changing provides the Moslems with strong economic system enabled them to have wide financial recourses to support the Islamic state and the spreading Islam in new places.
After the Prophet Muhammad and his companions settled at Yathrib, this city changed its name, and henceforth was called, Al-Medina Al-Munawara, The Illuminated City, or more shortly, Medina, The City. It is situated about eleven day's journey to the north of Mecca.
That wasn't just a changing in names or the calendar; it was a start for a great religion and a great nation which provided justice and prosperity for its citizens.
Today some Muslims are looking to find refuge somewhere, to find justice and prosperity but sadly most of the Muslim hosts are hostile to their brother Muslim Refugees. Even the non-Muslims are helping the Muslim Refugees more than those selfish un-Islamic rich Muslim nations.
Note: I had heavily edited the riginal article, "The refugee who created a great nation" The first ebook written and published by a refugee about: UNHCR, Iraq and Terrorism or read online about Islamic historic stories.
I hope for the forgivness by the above author for using his article.

Most observers, right or left, pro-Israel or anti-Israel, would agree that Israeli-American relations are the worst they have been in memory. Among the many indications is that only 9 percent of Jewish Israelis think Pres. Barack Obama's administration is more pro-Israel than pro-Palestinian, according to a Smith Research poll taken during the last week of March on behalf of the Jerusalem Post. Given how much Israelis love and admire (and emigrate to) America, this level of mistrust is remarkable.
Commentators on the left blame Israel, of course. For them, this is a no-brainer; blaming Israel is as natural as breathing. Furthermore, Israel is headed by a conservative prime minister and America is led by the most left-wing president in its history.Meanwhile, commentators on the right are virtually unanimous in supporting Israel. This is not simply an anti-Obama, pro-Netanyahu reflex, however. There are many reasons for it:
First, Israel is our staunchest ally. Among other things, Israel votes with us in the United Nations more often than any other country, and it provides us with uniquely important technological know-how and intelligence. Second, conservatives' values are closer to Israel's values than those of perhaps any other nation. As Harry Truman said, "Israel is the embodiment of the great ideals of our civilization." Third, while a rift with Israel hurts Israel, it hurts America at least as much (as we shall see) and does not make Palestinians any more likely to make peace with the Jewish state. Recall, the Palestinians unleashed mass terror against Israel after a left-leaning Israeli prime minister agreed to give the Palestinians 97 percent of the territory conquered in 1967 and 3 percent more from Israel itself. Why, then, would the Palestinians make peace with Israel now when half of the Palestinians are governed by Hamas, whose charter calls for Israel's destruction? Because Barack Obama humiliated the Israeli prime minister during the latter's visit to Washington — over Israeli plans to build 1,600 apartments in Jerusalem?
Fourth, the greatest international threat today emanates from Iran, a threat that will be exponentially increased if Iran is not prevented from developing nuclear weapons. A weakened Israel means an emboldened Iran. And this frightens conservatives more than it does the global Left and President Obama. There is a fifth reason tens of millions of Americans, including many conservative commentators, support Israel and worry about America as American support for Israel wanes. To the Left in America and around the world, this reason is dangerous nonsense. But for a vast number of America's Christians, for many Jews, and even many non-religious conservatives, it is deeper than any military or political reason. The reason is based on a verse in Genesis in which God, referring to the Jewish people, says to Abraham: "I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you."
One need not be a Jew or Christian or even believe in God to appreciate that this verse is as accurate a prediction as humanity has ever been given by the ancient world. The Jewish people have suffered longer and more horribly than any other living people. But they are still around. Its historic enemies are all gone. Those that cursed the Jews were indeed cursed.

At this very moment every heart beat inside of me pumps not blood but fury, I hate this feeling. I am very angry.
As I have stated before, my house renovation has started on the 17th April. My contractors have been working from around 9am-6pm Monday to Saturday. Totally no work is being done on Sunday to respect my neighbors and those laborers need rest too.
Yesterday (Monday 26th) one of the Indonesian workers had shyly told Azman that our next door neighbors had came and asked him to stop. Yes, he asked him to STOP DOING HIS WORK.
Temperature badan sedikit naik di situ. Secara clinicalnya the composition of my blood cells had naturally react to that statement by generating heat commonly known as RAGE. Perghh… baran?! Aku scowled at Azman but did not say anything. I was busy at that time and I figured there must some kind of misscommunications somewhere. The Indon worker is a quiet young man, very shy and reserved. Maybe he wrongly interpreted what my neighbor had said.
This morning however, Azman received a call from the contractor saying that two MPSJ officers had come to inspect on their work. My workers came to Malaysia legally with working permits. This kind of foreign workers would rather pay up money than mess with authority, because they are really here to work and earn a decent living. So although they had not done anything wrong; they adhered and stop the work on MY HOUSE for today.
The renovation work on MY HOUSE has been delayed by one day. The officers came and couldn't find a single thing that is against the law (that most probably they make themselves). They left saying that the site visit is procedural to them BECAUSE THERE HAS BEEN A REPORT!
Mind you, we are not building any external structure. We are not making an extension to the existing building. We are not making a mess, not even a pile of sand in the size of a dog shit on the roadside in front of the house. All construction materials are kept neatly INSIDE my compound! Yes, my garden is big! Even the huge construction trash trunk whatchamacallit, that is a must for every building under construction is tucked neatly beneath my porch!
AKU TAKKK KACAUUU ORANGGGG!! AKU BUKANNYA NAK BINA TEKO BESAR AYAH PIN KE PIRAMID KE APA?!
Yaaaaa.. who else but Mr. and Mrs. Next Door Neighbor, no?
Azman investigated a little bit and called the head contractor, Yanto. According to him, the couple had came on Saturday to tell them to STOP doing their work because of all the noise. Apparently they were using the cement mixer machine and it had been making noise I guess that they came complaining.
Yanto being considerate and understood that it was a Saturday and they probably need some rest had instructed his workers to mix the cement manually by their tulang empat kerat.
Tapi takpe… Yanto very nice and sedar diri that he shouldn't disturb the neighbors on Saturdays. He didn't even tell this to us. So the men shoveled and shoveled the cement mix. 80% less noise I confidently say and don't you guys think that Mr. and Mrs. Jiran Pakai Ketayap Tapi Biadap should be contented already?
But nope, I guess they were still dengki unhappy. This couple is much older than us. Their son is probably in college already. From the way they look and dressed, they seem to be from keturunan orang baik-baik. So I don't understand why after much consideration from my workers; they still come complaining on Monday and what makes my blood boils the most is the formal reporting to the authorities on Tuesday????
Why the hell are they telling my workers to STOP? Stop until when? What is the justifications? By saying STOP; what exactly is the message that they are trying to convey?
Owhhh by the way their house is very cantikkk!!! Trimmings hijau muntah Kokades dengan dinding oren berak cirit rotavirus aku. Cantik kan??? Macam sakaiiii!!!
To me when they simply went ahead and scolded my poor workers without consulting us as the house owner that soon will be their neighbors; THEY DECLARED WAR!!
Actually anybody who paints their hijau muntah dan oren taik memang sengaja nak declare war dengan jiran dia lah! hehe!
For your information, we had came over last week and introduced ourselves properly to Mr Jiran Pakai Ketayap Tapi Biadap, and apologize if any of the works would caused him and his family some discomfort.
But come on… rumah tengah renovate mestilah ada bunyi bising! Itu adatlah! When they did their massive renovation last time (which was 5 times more extensive that what we are doing today) aku bet potong jari their contractors must have made a lot of noises too, right?
So why when other people nak buat renovation tak boleh? I only change some tiles inside the house, how long does the renovation takes if not just a few weeks? Tak boleh sabar sikit ke? Macam ni ke hidup bermasyarakat? Salah sikit terus report, nak suruh aku kena saman ke? Apsal keji sangat manusia macam ni?
Come on la. Pakai ketayap tak bukak-bukak. Tudung labuh sampai lutut. Bising sikit terus report authorities, tak reti ke bawak berbincang? Ni bangsa apa biadap sangat ni? kalau dah tak boleh bising langsung yang pergi duduk tepi highway tu buat apa? Pergilah pindah belakang hospital sebelah rumah mayat ke… confirm senyap!
We have not moved in yet and already they messing with us. Aku kawan dengan Jin Islam lagi baik. Haqqqhhh ptuih kahak hijau!

MCA menyelar Presiden Pertubuhan Pribumi Perkasa Malaysia (Perkasa) Datuk Ibrahim Ali kerana mengeluarkan kenyataan berunsur "perkauman menebal" yang telah menyinggung perasaan kaum Cina.
Naib Presiden MCA Gan Ping Sieu berkata kenyataan anggota Parlimen Pasir Mas itu yang menggesa kerajaan menangguhkan kelulusan peruntukan dan projek kepada kaum Cina, yang Ibrahim anggap sebagai "tidak berterima kasih" dan "tidak menghargai" amat dikesali.
"Kenyataan itu juga berunsur hasutan," katanya dalam kenyataan di sini hari ini.
Ibrahim membuat kenyataan itu semalam berikutan keputusan pilihan raya kecil bagi kerusi Parlimen Hulu Selangor pada Ahad yang menunjukkan sokongan kaum Cina terhadap Barisan Nasional (BN) semakin berkurangan.
Bagaimanapun, Gan menegaskan satu daripada sebab utama BN kehilangan keyakinan kaum Cina adalan berpunca daripada kerjasama sebenar atau tanggapan terhadap kerjasama erat pemimpin BN dengan organisasi "perkauman menebal".
Beliau juga mendakwa kenyataan berunsur perkauman oleh beberapa pemimpin BN yang dilaporkan secara meluas oleh media turut memberi kesan dalam pilihan raya kecil itu.
Gan berkata jika Barisan Nasional mahu mendapatkan lebih banyak sokongan daripada pengundi bukan Melayu, ia perlu terlebih dahulu menjauhkan diri dengan pertubuhan seperti Perkasa yang cenderung meluahkan kenyataan berunsur perkauman.
Jika tidak, BN menghadapi risiko kehilangan sokongan pengundi bukan Melayu pada pilihan raya umum ke-13 akan datang, kata beliau dipetik Bernama.
"Saya bangga menjadi wakil rakyat yang datang dengan tanggungjawab untuk berkhidmat kepada rakyat. Sebarang kenyataan supaya rakyat berterima kasih dan menghargai merupakan pencabulan terhadap amanah dan keyakinan yang diberikan rakyat.
"Mana-mana ahli politik yang membuat kenyataan berunsur perkauman dalam komuniti mereka sendiri akhirnya akan diketepikan oleh rakyat. Saya pasti jika Ibrahim Ali bertanding sebagai calon di kawasan bukan Melayu, beliau tidak akan mampu dapat 10 peratus pun daripada undi," katanya. -TMI

Comment: Although I hate Ahmadinejad for the violent suppression of opposition I now have to agree with him the UNSC and 'TERRORIST' 5 VETO power weilding countries. USA is always protecting villain Israel and China and Russia are protecting rogue nations. So those three Veto nations that protect the criminals are deserved to be labled satanic. I agree.
TEHRAN, April 27 — Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad yesterday labelled as "satanic" the UN Security Council and the right of veto held by its five permanent members, Iran's Students news agency ISNA reported.
Ahmadinejad, who often rails against the West, said the power of veto held by the United States, China, Britain, France and Russia was aimed at "oppressing and destroying the true nature of mankind and are satanic tools," ISNA said.
His comments came amid escalating tension in the Islamic Republic's long-running dispute with the West over Tehran's nuclear programme, with the United States pushing for new UN sanctions against the major oil producer.
Washington and its allies suspect Iran is seeking to develop nuclear bombs. Tehran denies the charge and says its nuclear work is aimed at generating electricity.
A US draft for a fourth round of UN sanctions proposes more curbs on Iranian banking, an arms embargo, tougher measures against Iranian shipping, moves against Revolutionary Guards members and a ban on new investments in Iran's energy sector.
Tehran has remained defiant, saying it is prepared to swap its low-level enriched uranium for higher-grade fuel enriched abroad, a move which would help address fears about Iran's enrichment activities, but insists this happen on Iranian soil.
In October Iran agreed in principle to send low-enriched uranium abroad for more processing, but then said the swap should "take place inside its territory and simultaneously." — Reuters

Pakar patologi British Profesor Dr Peter Vanezis selesai memberi keterangan berhubung kes kematian Teoh Beng Hock hari ini tetapi pihak peguam mewakili keluarga mendiang meragui beberapa keterangan beliau dan akan membandingkan bukti dari pakar patologi Thailand Dr Pornthip Rojanasunand.
Peguam Gobind Singh Deo berkata, kenyataan yang diberikan oleh Peter Vanezis perlu disemak semula bersama bukti yang dikeluarkan oleh Dr Pornthip kerana ia meragukan pihak keluarga mendiang.
"Saya bersama peguam yang lain akan menilai semula kenyataan yang disampaikan oleh Dr Vanezis dengan bukti yang akan dilampirkan oleh Dr Pornthip."Kami peguam perlu memberi kepastian mengenai kenyataan yang dinyatakan oleh Dr Vanezis agar mencapai keputusan terbaik menyelesaikan kes Teoh," katanya.
Menurutnya lagi, kesimpulan yang diberikan oleh Dr Vanezis merupakan tafsiran daripada seorang individu dan perlu ada penilaian daripada pihak lain agar dapat dibandingkan.
Pakar patologi British itu semalam telah membuat laporan di balai polis Shah Alam jam 11.00 malam tadi susulan menerima emel ugutan daripada pihak yang tidak bertanggungjawab mengugut membunuh beliau dan keluarga.
Dr Vanezis menyatakan emel yang diterima membuatkan beliau dan seluruh keluarga terancam dan meminta agar perkara sedemikian tidak akan berlarutan.
Dr Vanezis dilantik oleh Suruhanjaya Pencegahan Rasuah Malaysia (SPRM) manakala Dr Pornthip dilantik oleh kerajaan negeri Selangor, bagi menjalankan bedah siasat kedua ke atas mayat Teoh yang digali semula dari kubur pada November tahun lepas.
Dr Vanezis mula memberi keterangan dalam inkues kematian Teoh semalam dan selesai sepenuhnya tengahari ini.
Pada 17 Julai tahun lepas, Teoh ditemui mati di koridor di tingkat lima Plaza Masalam di Shah Alam selepas disoal siasat oleh SPRM Selangor di pejabat suruhanjaya itu berhubung dakwaan penyelewengan dana kerajaan negeri.

Bekas Exco Pergerakan Pemuda Umno Malaysia, Thamrin Ghafar menyifatkan sudah tiba masa bagi beliau menyokong Pakatan Rakyat setelah melihat penyelewengan dan penyalahgunaan kuasa berleluasa yang dilakukan oleh pimpinan Umno dan Barisan Nasional selama lebih 50 tahun mentadbir negara.
Bercakap kepada Suara Keadilan baru-baru ini anak mantan Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Tun Ghafar Baba itu berkata beliau sendiri tidak bersetuju dengan banyak dasar yang dilaksanakan kerajaan Umno-BN yang tidak memberi manfaat kepada rakyat dan negara.
"Saya dah mula sedar bahawa banyak isu yang saya sendiri tidak boleh terima tentang dasar Umno dan Barisan Nasional. Saya rasa sudah sampai masanya saya terpaksa mengubah sikap," kata Thamrin yang juga adalah bekas Pengerusi MARA.
Kehadiran beliau pada dua majlis utama semasa kempen pilihan raya kecil Parlimen Hulu Selangor telah mengejutkan penyokong Pakatan Rakyat.
Thamrin pertama kalinya hadir pada majlis Pidato Perdana anjuran Pemuda Pakatan Rakyat di Sg Buaya 24 April lalu dan juga ceramah 'grand finale' di Stadium Mini Kuala Kubu Baharu bersama-sama pimpinan Pakatan Rakyat. -sk

KUALA LUMPUR, April 27 — Gushing water from a broken underground pipe along Jalan University in Bangsar yesterday, sent three cars crashing and causing injuries to the three drivers.
During the 4.30pm incident, the impact of the gushing water saw the first car, a Nissan Sunny, being hurled about 10m into the air before landing on the opposite side of the road, causing serious injuries to the driver.
Two other cars that were following behind, a Honda and a Proton suffered a similar fate, though the impact was less.
The Honda car turned turtle while the Proton spun dangerously before coming to a stop and both drivers suffered minor injuries while all three were rushed to the University Malaya Medical Centre (UMMC) by passersby.
Assistant director of the Kuala Lumpur Fire and Rescue Department Azizan Ismail said initial investigations revealed that the broken pipe was caused by underground pressure due to works carried out.
"It may have been due to work carried out by the responsible company. The incident also resulted in a 15 feet hole in the place," he told reporters at the scene.
Meanwhile, Syarikat Bekalan Air Selangor Sdn Bhd (Syabas) in a statement said it was not involved in any pipe replacement work in the area.
Its Corporate Communications Executive Director Abdul Halem Mat Som said that the broken pipe was caused by relocation of pipes carried out by the Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water.
"The 1800mm pipe that broke in Jalan University was due to works carried out by the said ministry and SYABAS was not involved directly or indirectly," he said in the statement. — Bernama
