Umno-led BN hell bent on taking back S'gor by crook!!!

Posted: 05 Jun 2010 08:41 AM PDT

Talk is making the rounds that the BN is attempting to wrest back Selangor by adopting the same tactics as was seen in Perak. Speculation is rife that Umno while allegedly enticing Pakatan members with money politics to cross-over, is also now trying to rope in big-time tycoons to help destabilise the Selangor state government.

Perak Pakatan Rakyat chief Mohammad Nizar Jamaluddin said he had heard that a top Umno personality recently had approached a very prominent tycoon to seek his financial help in undermining the Selangor government.

However,
the tycoon rejected the request as he did not believe in dirty politics and was prepared for any political repercussions that his non-cooperation might invite.



VINCENT TAN - THE FRONT MAN FOR UMNO

Posted: 05 Jun 2010 09:28 AM PDT

Oh, I just love to read RPK's posting entitled 'How Vincent Tan became the Gaming King of Malaysia'

As expected, Vincent denied all of RPK's allegations and discounted them as pure nonsense.
Haha. If RPK's allegations are pure nonsense, then RPK possesses an amazing ability to cook up stories! So entertaining lah! I enjoy reading them. Never mind the fact if they are true or false.

Personally, someone once told me that Vincent Tan was known as the 'hak chai' in the investment circle. Don't know lah. Rumours only but where is the evidence? ;)

Account of what happened in Mavi Marmara.

Be sure to watch all 3 videos.

1. Turkey leads the nations in a war of condemnation against Israel
Have you ever heard of a nation who sends its commandos into battle with Paintball guns? Well Israel did. The elite soldiers sent to take control of the Flotilla ships were sent with paintball guns on board.  Clearly they were not planning for violence but only crowd control. There was no resistance on five of the ships and there were no injuries.

But, they were utterly surprised by the well-prepared reception they received on the largest ship, the Mavi Marmara.

It was a set up.

All during the voyage, the activists vowed they had no weapons and that they would only use passive resistance if stopped from reaching Gaza. But, all along they planned a well coordinated, and equipped, attack on the soldiers. The soldiers were viciously attacked with hammers, metal pipes, knives, and even live fire. Amazingly the commandos showed extreme restraint and continued to use paintball guns until two of their comrades were seriously hurt from live fire. Only then did they use the pistols they were carrying along with them. "They prepared a lynch for us," said one of the soldiers; "we feared for our lives," others recounted. (These are well-trained commandos!)

Watch the videos and understand what really happened on the Marmara; hear and see the testimony of a commando who participated in the raid. See the truth for yourself.

Just click on this link to JUSTtheTRUTH a web page I created with some videos. Caution: They are not easy to watch!

http://bit.ly/dzhfAE

Yet, Turkey has called Israel a terrorist state, has charged that Israel has lost all legitimacy and said the raid was "murder committed by the State." Abbas of the PA called the raid a "slaughter" and Hamas leader Haniyeh appeared on Al-Jazeera television to condemn the "brutal attack." To be honest, it's hard to take the self-righteous hypocrisy of these entities. Why did Turkey allow the Flotilla in the first place? Why did Turkey back the IHH – Insani Yardim Vakfi – "Humanitarian relief fund&#8221 knowing very well that it is a radical Islamic organization with deep connections to known terrorist organizations? Why did Turkish authorities fail to check the boats and the people before they embarked on this deliberately provocative journey?

Officials from the Turkish Customs Directorate said all passengers that boarded the Mavi Marmara ship were screened and that not a single passenger was in possession of any weapon.

Apparently, their screening methods are lax:

Should not the nations condemn Turkey for pushing the Middle East dangerously close to a terrible war? Should not the nations rebuke the NGO which instigated this crisis? Should not the head of IHH, the organizer, be put on trial? Shouldn't the UN Security Council call upon the Arab nations in the Middle East to put pressure on Hamas to lay down its terrorist agenda to annihilate Israel, disarm itself and remove any need for a siege?

Kesihatan Lutfi Semakin Pulih

SETELAH beberapa kali tertangguh, lewat petang tadi saya bersama isteri dan dua anak ke rumah Ahmad Lutfi Othman di rumahnya di Bukit Ampang, Selangor. Lutfi sudah lima minggu selamat menjalani pembedahan pintasan jantung. Alhamdulilah walaupun keadaa kesihatannya belum pulih sepenuhnya, namun beliau sudah dapat berjalan, bertatih menggunakan tongkat.

Menurutnya beliau masih menerima rawatan dan luka pembedahan jantung sudah hampir sembuh cuma luka di bahagian kaki masih belum baik sepenuhnya. Kesan kencing manis menyebabkan tahap kesembuhan agak lambat.

Lutfi kelihatan cerita dan kesempatan itu masih bercakap soal dunia penulisan serta dunia persurat khabaran. Lutfi masa ini adalah Ketua Pengarang akhbar Harakah. Beliau juga merupakan orang bertanggungjawab memulakan penerbitan Siasah bersama saya.

Bagaimana pun disebabkan Harakah lebih memerlukan tenaganya menyebabkan Lutfi terpaksa meninggalkan Siasah setelah menerbitnya sehingga keluaran 14 dan berhijrah ke Harakah. Harakah mempunyai sentimen value cukup tinggi kepada Lutfi.

Justeru memandang pembedahan pintasan jantung memerlukan kos yang tinggi elok kalau Harakah tanggungjawab untuk menanggung sepenuhnya perbelajaan berkenaan. Rasanya budi dan pergorbanan Lutfi untuk Harakah tidak akan terbayar walaupun seberapa banyak bantuan dihulurkan buatnya.

Bercakap mengenai kos perbelanjaan rawatan yang tinggi, Lutfi menyatakan terima kasih kepada rakan-rakan dan pihak membantunya. Beliau juga bernasih baik kerana mendapat perhatian dari dua Exco Kelantan, Husam Musa dan Takiyuddin Hassan yang menghulurkan bantuan. Beliau juga menyebut hampir semua pemimpin Pas menziarahinya antara Abdul Hadi Awang, Dr Hassan Ali dan lain-lain.

Kemurahan hati Husam membantunya, kata Lutfi telah merintis jalan kepada sahabat-sahabat lain turut memberi sumbangan mengiku kadar masing-masing. Dan semasa saya di rumah Lutfi tadi, wartawan Harakah Saidah Hairan bersama seorang rakan turut menziarahi bosnya itu. Didoakan semoga Lutfi cepat sembuh dan kembali ke gelanggang untuk 'menyantun' Harakah seperti biasa. Harakah tanpa Lutfi kurang bersemangat dan kurang menyengat! [wm.kl. 9:00 pm 05/06/10]


Amerika Bersekongkol Dengan Israel Tuduh Flotila Bawa Senjata

Posted: 05 Jun 2010 09:06 AM PDT

Dakwaan Biden Flotila Bawa Senjata Karut

Dakwaan Naib Presiden Amerika Syarikat, Joe Biden yang mengatakan konvoi enam kapal bantuan kemanusiaan (Freedom Flotilla) kepada penduduk Palestin di Semenanjung Gaza membawa bekalan senjata tidak berasas sama sekali.

Pengerusi Biro Antarabangsa KEADILAN, Mustaffa Kamil Ayub berkata kapal Mavi Marmara yang dulu diserang komando rejim Zionis-Israel yang menyebabkan sembilan sukarelawan dan berpuluh lagi cedera dalam serangan itu.

"Misi bantuan kemanusiaan itu adalah gabungan warga 40 buah negara dunia dan konvoi tersebut juga membawa ahli parlimen United Kingdom serta pemenang Nobel.

"Serangan itu menunjukkan rejim Zionis itu mengisytiharkan perang kepada seluruh warga dunia.

"Sehingga ke hari ini, rejim Zionis itu telah melanggar lebih 80 resolusi Pertubuhan Bangsa-Bangsa Bersatu, maksudnya ia langsung tidak menghormati undang-undang dunia, " tegas beliau.

Biden, ketika ditemubual dalam rancangan "Charlie Rose" oleh stesen penyiaran American Public Broadcasting Service Rabu lalu mempertahankan tindakan Israel yang menahan kapal menuju ke Gaza bagi mencegah penyeludupan senjata.

Beliau berpandangan tidak ada keperluan untuk berkeras supaya bekalan itu disampaikan terus kepada penduduk Semenanjung Gaza.

Biden kemudiannya memberi alasan kononnya Israel bimbang dengan isi kandungan yang dibawa kapal tesebut.

Ditanya mengenai pendirian KEADILAN, Mustaffa berkata Pakatan Rakyat melalui Ketua Pembangkang, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim telah menghantar surat kepada pegawai Kedutaan Amerika Syarikat di sini untuk diserahkan kepada Presiden Amerika Syarikat, Barrack Obama.

"Pegawai tersebut berjanji akan menyerahkan surat tersebut minggu depan kepada Obama.

"Dalam surat itu, Pakatan Rakyat meminta agar beliau mengambil kesempatan untuk memperbetulkan keadaan itu," ujar Mustaffa lagi. -SK


Biden: Israel Has Right to Stop Gaza Ships
Published June 03, 2010 | FOXNews.com

AP/FILE

Vice President Joe Biden backed Israel's right to board ships bound for Gaza to prevent weapons smuggling on Wednesday, but said Washington remained concerned about the plight of Palestinians there.

Israeli commandos boarded a flotilla of six aid vessels trying to break Israel's three-year-old naval blockade of the Palestinian enclave on Monday. Nine activists were killed in the assault and dozens injured, including some commandos.

The U.S. has been careful in its response to the deadly raid and has not joined the international condemnation of Israel's use of force to stop the ships after its commandos were attacked as they rappelled down from helicopters.

"Israel has an absolute right to deal with its security interest," Biden said in an interview on PBS's "Charlie Rose" show, while reiterating the Obama administration's support for a transparent, impartial investigation of what happened.

The aim of the Israeli commando operation had been to seize control of the ships and escort them to Israel's Ashdod port. From there, Israeli authorities had promised to transfer the seized cargo to Hamas-controlled Gaza.

"They (Israel) have said, 'Here you go. You're in the Mediterranean. This ship -- if you divert slightly north you can unload it and we'll get the stuff into Gaza." So what's the big deal here?" Biden said.

"What's the big deal of insisting it go straight to Gaza?" he asked.

"Well, it's legitimate for Israel to say, 'I don't know what's on that ship. These guys are dropping eight -- 3,000 rockets on my people,"' he said, referring to Hamas, the Islamist movement which rejects interim peace terms with Israel and has regularly fired rockets into the Jewish state.

But Biden said the U.S. also needed to "put as much pressure and as much cajoling on Israel as we can" to allow in aid shipments such as building materials.

A day earlier, White House spokesman Robert Gibbs did not question Israel's motives in trying to enforce its 3-year-old blockade of Gaza, which is ruled by Hamas, designated by the State Department as a foreign terrorist organization.

The aim, he pointed out at a White House briefing Tuesday, is to keep weapons, not food, out of the territory.

Gibbs said the U.S. is "working to improve the humanitarian conditions" in Gaza. At the same time, he stressed the administration was "greatly supportive" of Israel's security and "that's not going to change."

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton also did not call for an end to the blockade, but she pressed Israel to allow greater access to humanitarian relief supplies.

In New York, meanwhile, the deputy U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Alejandro Wolff, suggested to reporters that the flotilla "may have been intended to provoke."

The impact on efforts to promote a peace settlement between Israel and the Palestinians may be minimal.

While Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu canceled a meeting with President Barack Obama to return home to deal with the aftermath of the raid, he spoke three times with the president.

U.S. mediator George Mitchell is due back in the region Wednesday and Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' June 9 White House meeting with Obama has not been canceled.

The raid provoked some angry rhetoric from Turkey, and seemed to threaten Israel's historic warm ties with Ankara. But the long-range impact on Israeli-Turkish relations may be limited.

Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan furiously told parliament Tuesday that the "bloody massacre" of at least four Turkish activists among nine passengers slain by Israeli naval commandos was a turning point in the long-standing alliance.

"Nothing will be the same again," Erdogan said, gesturing angrily, his voice shaking at times.

But Turkey's Deputy Prime Minister Bulent Arinc took a softer tone. "We will find a solution within law and diplomacy," he said. "No one should expect us to declare war on Israel over this."

When Obama telephoned Erdogan Tuesday, according to the White House, the U.S. president said it was important to find better ways to provide humanitarian assistance to the people of Gaza without undermining Israel's security.

Gibbs, meanwhile, suggested Obama's effort to build ties to Arab countries would not be damaged.

"In terms of our relationship with the Muslim world, I think the president has obviously spent a lot of time on improving our relationship with countries throughout the world, and special time and care on our relationship with the Muslim world.

"I do not think that this will have a great impact on that," he said

Reuters and The Associated Press contributed to this report.



IDF Boards Another Flotilla Ship, "Activists" Amazingly Cooperative This Time

Posted: 05 Jun 2010 08:15 AM PDT

The spirit of "Rachel Corrie" has just sunk-edit. When Israeli commandos boarded the first "freedom flotilla" boat, the Mavi Marmara, they were attacked with pipes, metal rods and chairs (the WWF wants their stuff back guys), and the result was nine dead boaters who were amazingly well armed for "peace activists." It was also subsequently discovered that the majority of those on board who attacked the IDF had links to terror organizations.




Fast forward the tape to early this morning. Another flotilla ship, the Rachel Corrie — named after the left-wing "peace activist" who once burned an American flag and was later run over and killed by an Israeli tank while acting as a "human shield" — was chugging toward the blockade. This time though, the ship was boarded without incident. Early reports are that people on the ship were in contact with the Israelis and permitted the ship to be boarded. I'm only guessing that this time the "activists" saw to it that the Rachel Corrie was loaded with priests, nuns, boy scouts and cute puppies:

The boarding of the Rachel Corrie containing activists and aid for Gaza was described by Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Saturday as a quiet operation. Netanyahu was quick to distinguish between the boat of Irish and Malaysian activists and the Turkish-sponsored Mavi Marmara which was boarded May 31 in an incident that left nine dead and scores wounded.

"The different outcome we saw today underscores the difference between peace activists who we disagree with but respect their right to express their different opinion and flotilla participants [on the Mavi Marmara] who were violent extremist supporters of terrorists," said Netanyahu.

Malaysian-based Perdana Global Peace Organization, according to its Website, is the single biggest donor ($366,000) so far to the Free Gaza Movement, a key organizer of the six-ship flotilla that tried to break Israel's blockade of the Hamas-run Gaza Strip Monday. Source...

DC's Turkish denial

Posted: 05 Jun 2010 07:55 AM PDT

AS the Irish-flagged "aid" ship Rachel Corrie heads for Gaza and Act Two of this made-in-Turkey crisis looms, Washington still can't bring itself to accept that the entire script was written in Ankara. Fourteen months ago, President Obama made his first stop abroad in Turkey, where he told his hosts that "Turkey and the United States can build a model partnership." Now our "partner" has stage-managed a cynical -- but brilliant -- public-relations debacle for Israel. And Washington's hiding in the wings, unwilling to face an unruly global audience.

To his credit, Vice President Joe "Look, Ma, no hands!" Biden did come out to defend Israel's right to block the flow of arms to Gaza's terrorists. But our president only called for an Israeli investigation of Israel's guilt. Nobody's asked for a study of Turkish involvement. But if the National Security Council won't do it, I will. In underwriting a terrorist-linked Turkish NGO's mission to Gaza, the Turks had a strategic goal and a domestic goal -- both of which they accomplished.

In the foreign-policy sphere, where the Islamists in charge in Ankara have delusions of grandeur, the mission was to position Turkey as the new champion of the Palestinians. The Turks never took the least interest in "Palestinian suffering" in the past. They regard all Arabs as fit only to be ruled by a Turkish hand. But the Palestinian cause is not only the tool of choice to harvest applause in the Middle East; it also plays well with the Islamist base of the Justice and Development Party.

Domestically, Turkey's devout Muslim premier, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, wanted to further isolate and reorient his country's military -- which, for all its faults, has for decades defended the secular constitution that was Ataturk's great legacy. Since taking office in 2003, Erdogan has worked relentlessly to neuter the military, casting private conversations as coup plots and trumping up charges to arrest popular generals. Faced with an upcoming Turkish-Israeli-US naval exercise, Erdogan saw an opportunity to sever the long-standing links between his military and Israel's. The timing of that "aid" flotilla was no accident.

Erdogan anticipated the clumsy Israeli response. He immediately canceled the naval exercise and forbade all further cooperation with Israel. Expect "humanitarian" maneuvers with Iranian forces in the future. (Turkish troops have already exercised with Syria's.) The Erdogan regime did a superb job of war-gaming how the Israelis would behave. Coordinating with Hamas to crowd Gazan waters with small craft to surround the blockade runners on arrival, they forced Israel to make its move in international waters -- to avoid a spectacle and needless loss of life.

For its part, Israel didn't do its own intelligence homework and expected to board those ships and round up a few hippies. Instead, the IDF encountered young, fit, armed and trained Turkish thugs looking for a fight. The Turks got even more of a PR bonanza than they'd hoped for. While Israel acted lethargically on the public-relations front, Turkish officials were ready with angry statements for the waiting cameras. The IDF hadn't finished taking over those vessels before "outraged" Turks were condemning them as murderers.

Meanwhile, the White House would've had plenty of intelligence warnings on what the Turks were up to. The president must have been briefed. Yet we haven't heard a whisper of criticism directed toward Turkey. Washington clings like an abandoned lover to its fantasy that Turkey is a model of how democracy and Islam can co-exist. Well, the Islamists were glad to use ballots to come to power, but they have no intention of relinquishing office. As fundamentalist Islam casts its lengthening shadow over Anatolia, democracy's light is dimming. The Turks know which of our buttons to press, though. When Ankara's reps head west, they wage a charm offensive; when they go east, it's a harm offensive . . . from providing diplomatic cover for Iran's nuclear program to hosting strategy sessions for Iraqi extremists.

Flustered, Washington rationalizes that, gosh, Turkey's a NATO ally and our access to Incirlik airbase in southeastern Turkey (where our personnel are prepositioned hostages) is worth no end of forbearance.As I wrote in Tuesday's paper, we're witnessing the greatest transformation in the Middle East in at least three decades, but our nervous leaders are bearing false testimony. On Monday, Turkey turned its back on the West. History changed. Only the closed minds in Washington have not. Ralph Peters in the New York Post


Israel, Turkey, and the End of Stability

Posted: 05 Jun 2010 07:03 AM PDT

Foreign policy "realists," back in the saddle since the Texan cowboy left town, are extremely fond of the concept of "stability": America needs a stable Middle East, so we should learn to live with Mubarak and the mullahs and the House of Saud, etc. You can see the appeal of "stability" to your big-time geopolitical analyst: You don't have to update your Rolodex too often, never mind rethink your assumptions. "Stability" is a fancy term to upgrade inertia and complacency into strategy. No wonder the fetishization of stability is one of the most stable features of foreign-policy analysis.

Unfortunately, back in what passes for the real world, there is no stability. History is always on the march, and, if it's not moving in your direction, it's generally moving in the other fellow's. Take this "humanitarian" "aid" flotilla. Much of what went on — the dissembling of the Palestinian propagandists, the hysteria of the U.N. and the Euro-ninnies — was just business as usual. But what was most striking was the behavior of the Turks. In the wake of the Israeli raid, Ankara promised to provide Turkish naval protection for the next "aid" convoy to Gaza. This would be, in effect, an act of war — more to the point, an act of war by a NATO member against the State of Israel.

Ten years ago, Turkey's behavior would have been unthinkable. Ankara was Israel's best friend in a region where every other neighbor wishes, to one degree or another, the Jewish state's destruction. Even when Recep Tayyip Erdogan's AKP was elected to power eight years ago, the experts assured us there was no need to worry. I remember sitting in a plush bar late one night with a former Turkish foreign minister, who told me, in between passing round the cigars and chugging back the Scotch, that, yes, the new crowd weren't quite so convivial in the wee small hours but, other than that, they knew where their interests lay. Like many Turkish movers and shakers of his generation, my drinking companion loved the Israelis. "They're tough hombres," he said admiringly. "You have to be in this part of the world." If you had suggested to him that in six years' time the Turkish prime minister would be telling the Israeli president to his face that "I know well how you kill children on beaches," he would have dismissed it as a fantasy concoction for some alternative universe.

Yet it happened. Erdogan said those words to Shimon Peres at Davos last year and then flounced off stage. Day by day what was formerly the Zionist entity's staunchest pal talks more and more like just another cookie-cutter death-to-the-Great-Satan stan-of-the-month.

As the think-tankers like to say: "Who lost Turkey?" In a nutshell: Kemal Ataturk. Since he founded post-Ottoman Turkey in his own image nearly nine decades ago, the population has increased from 14 million to over 70 million. But that five-fold increase is not evenly distributed. The short version of Turkish demographics in the 20th century is that Rumelian Turkey — i.e., western, European, secular, Kemalist Turkey — has been outbred by Anatolian Turkey — i.e., eastern, rural, traditionalist, Islamic Turkey. Ataturk and most of his supporters were from Rumelia, and they imposed the modern Turkish republic on a reluctant Anatolia, where Ataturk's distinction between the state and Islam was never accepted. Now they don't have to accept it. The swelling population has spilled out of its rural hinterland and into the once solidly Kemalist cities.

Al-Jazeera cameraman confirms some IDF claims of attack

Posted: 05 Jun 2010 06:59 AM PDT

The Lebanese cameraman, Andre Abu Khalil, confirms that the Turks aboard the Mavi Marmara assaulted Israeli soldiers with slingshots, metal pipes and wooden rods. The Israelis opened fire only after 10 minutes of standoff.

Andre Abu Khalil, a Lebanese cameraman for Al Jazeera TV, who was aboard the Mavi Marmara told Reuters some 20 Turkish men tried by force to prevent the boarding commandos from reaching the wheelhouse and commandeering the ship.

Using slingshots, metal pipes and wooden rods they initially succeeded in wounding and overpowering four Israeli soldiers and dragging them below decks, he told Reuters.

After a 10-minute standoff the Israelis opened fire, according to the cameraman. Source..

Pungutan Suara Ini: Bukti BN Pekak Pada Pelbagai Kaum?

Posted: 03 Jun 2010 09:51 PM PDT

Pemimpin BN yang pura-pura peka, tetapi sebenarnya masih pekak..

Judi sukan: Peminat bola pelbagai kaum kata 'jangan halalkan'

KL. Jun 4 10: Hasil pungutan suara menunjukkan keputusan mengejutkan dengan golongan muda, yang meminati sukan, umumnya membantah keputusan kerajaan menghalalkan judi sukan, yang dipercayai akan bermula dengan kejohanan bola sepak Piala Dunia 2010. Rata-rata majoriti golongan muda daripada kalangan semua kaum utama negara ini yang ditemui di Lembah Klang membantah langkah tersebut.

Hampir 77 peratus responden yang ditemui berpendapat bahawa kerajaan tidak wajar melesenkan pertaruhan sukan. Hanya 23 peratus yang bersetuju dengan langkah itu. Peratusan dua pertiga membantah itu membabitkan pendirian responden Melayu dan Cina manakala seratus peratus responden golongan muda India tidak bersetuju sama sekali dengan langkah kerajaan itu.

Seramai 73 peratus dan 77 peratus masing responden Melayu dan Cina tidak bersetuju langkah melesenkan judi sukan. Mereka berpendapat keputusan melesenkan pertaruhan sukan akan memberikan kesan buruk kepada sukan dan juga masyarakat. Pendirian ini dilahirkan ketika beberapa parti politik dan pertubuhan bukan kerajaan membabitkan kesemua kaum memprotes langakh kerajaan ini.

Setakat ini dua kerajaan negeri Pakatan Rakyat iaitu Pulau Pinang dan Selangor memutuskan untuk tidak memberi kebenaran kepada operasi lessen judi sukan. Selain itu, imej sukan yang selama ini bersih akan tercemar apabila pertaruhan tersebut diluluskan selain mungkin akan wujud proses jual-beli dalam sukan, kata beberapa responden yang ditemui.

Operasi lesen peraturan atau judi memerlukan kebenaran pihak berkuasa tempatan. Hasil pungutan suara itu jelas membuktikan bahawa bukan sahaja orang Melayu tetapi kaum-kaum lain juga membantah usaha melesenkan pertaruhan sukan.

Salah seorang responden yang ditemui, Mohd Affendy Abu Bakar, 24, usaha kerajaan untuk melesenkan pertaruhan sukan akan memberikan kesan buruk kepada masyarakat di negara ini.

"Apakah faedah yang boleh rakyat dapat apabila pertaruhan sukan diluluskan?

"Ia hanya memberikan lebih banyak kesan buruk kepada masyarakat berbanding kebaikan," kata kakitangan swasta ini.

Seorang lagi kakitangan swasta, Noor Azam Zainal Abidin, 25 berkata keputusan untuk meluluskan pertaruhan sukan tidak memberikan sebarang faedah kepada masyarakat.

"Masyarakat tidak mendapat sebarang faedah, sebaliknya hanya memberikan kesan buruk dalam masyarakat.

"Jadi bagi saya adalah lebih baik kerajaan membatalkan hasrat tersebut bagi kebaikan semua pihak," katanya.

Bagi pelajar, Khairul Anuar Salleh, 22 berkata kelulusan tersebut hanya memberikan kesan buruk kepada masyarakat selain mencemar imej sukan di negara ini. Bagaimanapun kakitangan swasta Wan Mohd Tarmizi Wan Ismail, 29, yang bersetuju dengan langkah kerajaan kerana langkah melesenkan akan menghalang perjudian haram daripada berleluasa.

"Saya setuju kerana saya lihat ia dapat menghalang perjudian haram ini daripada terus berleluasa.

"Tapi banyak perkara perlu dibuat untuk mengatasi masalah perjudian haram yang semakin berleluasa," katanya.

Pendapatnya disokong kakitangan swasta, Chan Weng Chun, 30 yang bersetuju dengan cadangan kerajaa itu dan pada masa sama dapat menghalang perjudian haram daripada berleluasa.

"Sekarang kita lihat perjudian haram semakin berleluasa jadi cadangan kerajaan itu dapat menghalangnya.

"Selain itu, pihak berkuasa juga dapat mengawal perjudian haram ini dengan mudah apabila cadangan tersebut dilulusan," katanya. (Sumber: The Malaysian Insider)

Komen blog Ibnu Hasyim: Agama-agama di dunia, majoritinya merujuk tentang keburukan judi kepada diri, keluarga, masyarakat dan negara.

Islam

Islam, secara jelas menyatakan haramnya judi. Allah ta'ala telah berfirman yang mafhumnya: "Wahai orang-orang mukmin. Sesungguhnya arak, judi, berhala, anak panah (judi) adalah najis (kotor) dari kelakuan syaitan. Jauhilah ia supaya kamu beroleh kemenangan. Sesungguhnya syaitan bertujuan menjadikan permusuhan dan kebencian di antara kamu melalui arak dan judi, serta menghalang kamu dari mengingati Allah dan mendirikan solat". Al-Maidah, 90-91.

Ayat ini jelas menunjukkan pengharaman 'khamr' (arak) dan segala bentuk 'maysir' (judi). Tak payah diceritakan panjang-panjang, rata-rata orang Islam sudah tahu, kecuali beberapa kerat pemimpin UMNO.

Budha

Ajaran lama Budha Hinayana, menggariskan lima larangan kepada penganut Budha iaitu; "membunuh, mencuri, menipu, berzina, meminum alkohol dan berjudi". Namun ajaran baru Budha Mahayana telah melonggarkan larangan ini dan ia hanya terpakai kepada yang mahu menjadi sami atau betul-betul menghayati ajaran Budha.

Juga tercatit dalam kitab lama Budha kisah masyhur 'Ratapan si Penjudi' (Gambler's Lament) yang menjadi pengajaran berguna apabila seorang penjudi yang kalah wang taruhan menyebabkan dia kehilangan anak dan isteri. Dalam kitab Budha, 'Tipitaka' juga ada menceritakan enam perkara bahaya akibat judi:

Pertama bagi yang menang akan mengundang kebencian,
kedua bagi yang kalah akan tertekan kerana kehilangan wang,
ketiga tidak ada perkataan yang boleh digunakan untuk pembelaannya di mahkamah,
keempat dia akan dijauhi oleh rakan dan keluarga,
kelima dia akan susah untuk menemui jodoh kerana tiada yang mahu bersuamikan si penjudi dan
keenam mencari kekayaan atas pertaruhan menyebabkan kesengsaraan kepada orang lain (yang kalah)' .

Walaupun ajaran Budha tidak mengharamkan secara jelas aktiviti judi dan membenarkannya sekadar permainan rekreasi dan hiburan seperti permainan 'mahjung' atas dasar untung nasib atau 'ong'. Namun Budha memberi amaran keras bagi yang mempertaruhkan wang dan mengabaikan tanggungjawab keluarga sehingga hilang wang pertaruhan dan sumber mata pencarian.

Apa yang berlaku, aktiviti judi yang sedia ada di negara kita terutama di kalangan yang berpendapatan rendah telah menyebabkan kebobrokan rumah tangga dan ramai terperangkap dengan hutang dengan meminjam melalui 'Ah Long' dan ceti haram. Kesimpulannya Buddha juga melarang penganutnya berjudi.

Kristian

Bagi ajaran Kristian pula tidak ada kejelasan dalam pengharaman judi tetapi ajaran Kristian memberi amaran bagi yang mencari kekayaan secara cepat dan cintakan wang seperti yang disebut di dalam Timothy 6:10 " Bagi mereka yang mencintakan wang ia adalah punca bagi segala kejahatan. Bagi mereka yang terlalu taksub berlumba mendapatkan wang dan mengabaikan tanggungjawab agama, seolah dia mencucuk dirinya dengan kesedihan di kemudian hari". Dalam Hebrew 13:5 pula mengatakan " Bebaskan dirimu dari kecintaan dunia (wang) dan berpadalah dengan apa yang kamu ada, kerana Tuhan telah mengatakan, ' Aku tidak akan tinggalkan kamu dan tidak akan membiarkan kamu (sentiasa menolongmu)'.

Majoriti gereja bersepakat menyatakan keburukan judi dan sebahagian membenarkan loteri kebajikan yang dianjurkan oleh pihak kerajaan dan juga aktiviti judi 'Bingo' sebagai akiviti rekreasi yang popular di kalangan warga pesara di negara barat. Namun begitu majoriti gereja menolak penubuhan pusat judi secara besaran seperti kasino atas dasar 'melampau'.

Manakala gereja Prebysterian menolak terus segala bentuk judi termasuk loteri kerana atas hujah ia mengambil wang dari golongan miskin dan berpendapatan rendah, yang mengharapkan hadiah lumayan, tetapi hanya 'seorang dalam sejuta sahaja' yang memenangi hadiah wang yang dijanjikan.

Yahudi

Manakala bagi penganut agama Yahudi, para Rabbi (pemimpin agama Yahudi) menetapkan aktiviti judi dibenarkan semasa perayaan Hannukah sahaja sebagai satu bentuk hiburan di musim perayaan. Usaha kerajaan UK suatu ketika dahulu untuk menubuhkan kasino secara besaran atas alasan untuk menarik pelancong dan menambah pendapat negara mendapat kecaman dari rakyat. Di Amerika Syarikat pula, walaupun di peringat Federal (Pusat) membenarkan aktiviti judi, namun setiap negeri mempunyai kuasa untuk mengharamkannya.

Nevada membenarkan lesen judi pada tahun 1931 dan menjadi sumber ekonomi utama negeri, diikuti Atlantic City dan New Jersey pada tahun 1976 dan Mississipi pada tahun 1990. Kebanyakan negeri lain di Amerika Syarikat masih tidak membenarkan lesen judi atas sebab kesan moral dan sosial kecuali loteri kebajikan dan permainan Bingo oleh pertubuhan bukan kerajaan untuk tujuan kebajikan. Judi secara logiknya adalah permainan orang yang mempunyai lebihan wang dan tidak terasa apabila mereka kalah judi.

Oleh kerana itulah pusat perjudian yang terkenal di Eropah, Monaco, rata-rata penghuninya adalah hartawan dan selebriti. Dalam sesetengah negara berlumba membina pusat-pusat perjudian dengan anggapan ia dapat meningkatkan hasil pendapatan negara, lain pula halnya sebuah negeri kepulauan kecil di Pasifik, Vanuatu, yang berpenduduk hampir 300,000 orang dan majoriti beragama Kristian. Kerajaan Vanuatu telah meluluskan akta pengharaman judi di negara mereka sejak tahun 2006 dan ia tidak mendapat sebarang bantahan dari rakyat malah dialu-alukan.

Malaysia

Jadi hasil pungutan suara di atas sebenarnya bukanlah menunjukkan keputusan mengejutkan. Kerana realiti pemikiran golongan muda yang sihat, yang meminati sukan, umumnya membantah keputusan kerajaan menghalalkan judi sukan. Cuma kerajaan yang pura-pura pekak dan cuba menutupi 'kebodohan kepekakkan dan tiada kepekaan' terhadap rakyat mula terbongkar dari selubung tamak ekonomi.

Pihak kerajaan telahpun meluluskan lesen kepada Berjaya Corporation untuk menguruskan pertaruhan sempena Piala Dunia 2010 yang akan menjelang tiba. Tentangan bukan sahaja datang dari pihak parti pembangkang dan orang Islam, bahkan dari pertubuhan bukan kerajaan dan masyarakat bukan Islam. Saranan dari bekas Perdana Menteri, Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, juga Timbalan Perdana Menteri, Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin agar keputusan kerajaan tersebut dikaji semula amatlah dialu-alukan dan harus diteliti oleh pihak kerajaan.

Ia bukan sahaja dapat mereda suasana dan desakan majoriti masyarakat, bahkan bersesuaian dengan identiti Malaysia sebagai sebuah negara Islam contoh di kalangan Negara-negara Islam terutama dalam negara menonjolkan diri sebagai Pusat Kewangan Islam Antarabangsa dan juga Pusat Halal Dunia. Walaupun lesen judi hanya dibenarkan untuk pelanggan di kalangan bukan Islam termasuk pekerja dan premis, namun judi bukan sahaja mendapat tentangan daripada masyarakat Islam tetapi bukan Islam sendiri.

Kesimpulanya, pungutan suara di atas adalah satu lagi bukti kerajaan BN masih pekak dan tidak peka terhadap kehendak rakyat pelbagai kaum di negara ini.


Terbukti UMNO Itu Sekutu Yahudi

Posted: 04 Jun 2010 11:13 PM PDT

Pengerusi Biro Antarabangsa KEADILAN, Mustaffa Kamil Ayub kesal dengan tindakan kerajaan Umno-Barisan Nasional yang tidak mengiktiraf pengorbanan sukarelawan yang terselamat dalam misi bantuan kemanusiaan ke Semenanjung Gaza Isnin lepas.

"Faktor alasan kewangan tidak dapat diterima sama sekali sedangkan komitmen kerajaan Turki lebih tinggi berbanding negara-negara Islam yang lain termasuk Malaysia.

"Saya berasakan ini berkemungkinan mempunyai hubungkait dengan kontrak yang dimeterai antara kerajaan Umno-BN dan Apco.

"Kerajaan di bawah pimpinan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Najib Razak nampaknya seperti terikat dan mengikut telunjuk untuk mendapat perhatian Presiden Amerika Syarikat, Barrack Obama.

Menurut Mustaffa lagi, ini mungkin mempunyai kaitan dengan kezaliman terhadap Ketua Pembangkang, Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim dan kes pembunuhan Altantunya.

"Kita juga sangsi dengan respon Najib yang begitu lambat bertindak berhubung serangan komando rejim zionis Israel terhadap kapal Mavi Marmarra yang menyebabkan 9 aktivis dan berpuluh lagi cedera.

"Kontrak yang dimeterai Najib dengan syarikat Apco Worldwide menjadi satu sebab kerajaan Umno-BNl bersikap sederhana terhadap sukarelawan Malaysia yang terselamat," ujarnya ketika dihubungi Suara Keadilan.

Sebelum itu, media melaporkan Menteri Pertahanan, Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi dipetik berkata Angkatan Tentera Malaysia tidak akan mengadakan penerbangan khas untuk membawa pulang 12 sukarelawan dan media Malaysia yang dibebaskan dari tahanan tentera Israel.

Zahid memberi alasan penerbangan itu akan membabitkan kos yang tinggi dan setakat ini tiada permintaan daripada kerajaan Umno-BN untuk membawa mereka pulang menggunakan pesawat tentera. -SK


Tiada penerbangan khas bawa pulang sukarelawan: Zahid

KUALA LUMPUR: Angkatan Tentera Malaysia (ATM) tidak akan mengadakan penerbangan khas untuk membawa pulang 12 sukarelawan dan media Malaysia yang dibebaskan dari tahanan tentera Israel.

Menteri Pertahanan, Datuk Seri Dr Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, berkata selain membabitkan kos yang tinggi, setakat ini tiada permintaan untuk membawa mereka pulang menggunakan pesawat tentera.

"Jika nak bawa guna Charlie (pesawat pengangkut), kosnya tinggi... jadi saya tidak nampak sebarang keperluan itu buat masa ini selain tidak ada permintaan," katanya kepada pemberita selepas melancarkan Pelan Transformasi Mindef di Kementerian Pertahanan di sini hari ini.

Bagaimanapun, beliau berkata semua 12 sukarelawan Malaysia itu turut dibantu Atase Pertahanan Malaysia di Jordan sebaik dilepaskan dari tahanan tentera Israel.

"Selain diberikan makan minum, semua mereka turut diterangkan atase pertahanan tentang beberapa langkah yang perlu diambil untuk pulang ke Malaysia," katanya.

Dalam kejadian itu, kapal Turki yang membawa bekalan keperluan asas seperti makanan, ubat-ubatan dan bahan binaan ke Gaza telah diserang tentera Israel ketika berada kira-kira 68 batu nautika di luar perairan negara itu, mengakibatkan sekurang-kurangnya 10 orang terkorban.

Seramai 12 rakyat Malaysia termasuk wartawan dan jurukamera Astro Awani turut berada dalam kapal itu dan mereka dibebaskan dan dibawa ke Jordan.

Zahid turut menggesa negara yang mempunyai hubungan diplomatik dengan Israel agar mengkaji semula hubungan tersebut bagi menentang tindakan Israel yang telah bertindak di luar garis-garis diplomatik.

Beliau berkata, masyarakat dunia bukan hanya perlu mengutuk tindakan Israel tetapi perlu bertindak menghentikan hubungan diplomatik dengan negara tersebut yang biadap dan tidak berperikemanusiaan.

"Tindakan yang dilakukan oleh Israel itu diluar garis diplomatik kerana menggunakan kekerasan dan melakukan tindakan di perairan antarabangsa yang tidak pernah selama ini dilakukan oleh mana-mana negara di dunia," katanya. - BERNAMA


Ulasan GB

Mana pergi Abu Lahab Malaysia yang sentiasa ada berjuta-juta ringgit untuk dirasuahkan kepada katak-katak?

Mengapa tidak boleh mengeluarkan belanja untuk membawa pulang 12 sukarelawan dan media Malaysia yang dibebaskan dari tahanan tentera Israel?

"Jika nak bawa guna Charlie (pesawat pengangkut), kosnya tinggi.." kata Zahid. Jawapan yang tak sepatutnya keluar dari pemimpin UMNO terhadap nyawa-nyawa rakyat Malaysia yang kini terancam di Gaza.

Sepastinya kerana menjaga APCO. Sepastinya kerana menjaga kepentingan Yahudi.

Maka tidak hairan di dalam demo Anti-Israel semalam, UMNO tidak melibatkan diri malah Polis Malaysia cuba untuk menghalang rakyat menyertai demo tersebut dengan alasan tiada permit.

Rupa-rupanya UMNO itu sekutu Yahudi! Gi jahanam UMNO, gi jahanam Israel.


Khairy will rescue Gaza & defeat the evil regime

Posted: 05 Jun 2010 03:54 AM PDT

Israeli Commanders and Navy Seals were simply shaken and sweating profusely when they heard Prebet Khairy issuing the following ultimatum:

"If another attack happens, we [Malaysian] will rise. I am sure the [Malaysian] people here will sacrifice our lives to fight for this."

Askar Khairy assured everyone that:

"if Israel attacked another ship heading to Gaza, the Zionist regime would have to deal with him."


"We will not only demonstrate, but we will also make sure that we go to Gaza to defeat the Israeli regime," said Khairy, who graduated as a "private".

"We are ready to go there ourselves to help in Gaza. We hope the Malaysian government allows more ships, 10, 20 or even 100. We want to open the eyes of the world to what has happened," he added.

On whether he will be proposing for more ships to be sent to Gaza, Khairy said he will discuss this with Prime Minister Najib Tun Razak and other NGOs such as Perkasa.

"Our fight doesn't just stop here. Imagine if 100 ships from all over the world go over, how can they stop us. If we have strength in numbers, Umno Youth and everyone will all go," he said.

Asked if he is prepared to go, Khairy replied: "Of course."

(Ref Article)

Rembau MP Khairy Jamaluddin had recently enrolled for the month-long Territorial Army programme. He graduated with flying colors and Negri Sembilan MB Mohamad Hasan presented him with the best overall and best academic awards.

Khairy said the foot-drill was the toughest as he had to go through several hours of training under the blazing sun. Malaysian sun is really hot and it is surely tough for the trainees.

Now, the Prebet is ready and able. He is willing to lead a battalion to Gaza to defeat the Israelis, should Najib agrees to sent 100 ships.

"Khairy is coming to the rescue of the people of Gaza and he will spearhead the demise of the Israeli regime" (quote here). Many suggest that he should also invite Mahathir and Ibrahim Ali to travel with the battalion of ships to Gaza. It would surely scare the shit out of the Israeli commandos. But Ibrahim and Mahathir had yet to enroll for the Wataniah training and may not be able to withstand the tough training under the blazing sun. However, someone suggested that this can be solved as we have umbrellas which can be used to shield the sun.

Whatsoever, we condemn the actions of the Israeli commandos for their actions on board of Flotilla. Whatever the reasons, they should not kill those unarmed human who were doing humanitarian works. And I must applaud Prebet Khairy for his bravery.

God Save our Prime Minister

UMNO BN Dah Lama Kenyang Makan Hasil Judi Dari Berjaya

Lesen judi sukan 'ganjaran' Kabinet kepada Berjaya

KUALA LUMPUR, 5 Jun — Ahli Parlimen Shah Alam Khalid Samad hari ini mendakwa kerajaan pusat meluluskan lesen judi sukan kepada Kumpulan Berjaya sebagai "ganjaran" atas bantuan kewangan yang didakwa telah diberikan syarikat itu semasa pilihan raya.

"Saya percaya Perdana Menteri meluluskan lesen judi ini atas sebab terhutang budi dengan Kumpulan Berjaya yang telah menyokong Barisan Nasional (BN) di dalam 11 pilihan raya kecil yang lepas.

"Ini kerana banyak duit yang dibelanjakan sebahagian besar daripada duit itu besar kemungkinan datangnya daripada Kumpulan Berjaya dan sebagai ganjaran maka diberikan lesen ini,"
kata beliau ketika berucap pada majlis pelancaran Kempen Membantah Judi di pekarangan kompleks membeli-belah Sogo dekat sini.

Beliau yang juga anggota Biro Politik PAS mendakwa Najib memberikan lesen judi tersebut kepada Kumpulan Berjaya kerana terdesak apabila mengetahui keadaan kewangan negara tidak seperti yang dijangkakan.

"Keputusan memberikan lesen judi ini adalah satu keputusan mengejut yang dibuat Najib kerana ia tidak pernah dibincangkan dalam sidang Parlimen.

"Secara zahirnya jelas bahawa beliau terdesak apabila mengetahui keadaan kewangan negara tidak seperti yang dijangkakan.

"Oleh sebab itu beliau memberikan lesen judi ini kepada Kumpulan Berjaya dan saya percaya syarikat ini memperoleh keuntungan sebanyak RM250 juta hasil daripada pertaruhan bola sepak Piala Dunia tidak lama lagi," katanya.

Pelancaran kempen tersebut adalah anjuran Gerakan Membantah Judi (GMJ) yang disertai 22 pertubuhan bukan kerajaan termasuk Perundingan Pertubuhan Islam Malaysia, Persatuan Teras Perpaduan Melayu, Dewan Pemuda Masjid, Angkatan Belia Islam Malaysia, Gabungan Mahasiswa Islam Semalaysia, Satu Nama, Jemaah Islah Malaysia dan Jamaiy.

Turut sertai ialah Pengerak Belia Tempatan MPK, Budayawan Bertindak, Seniman Paksi Rakyat, Persatuan Anak-anak Peneroka Felda, Nisa Malaysia, Persatuan Kebangsaan Islam Malaysia, Persatuan Dharma Sakyamuni, Relawan, Pusat Aduan Rakyat Kempas, Sekretariat Himpunan Ulama Rantau Asia, Dewan Pemuda Pusat dan terbaru Pertubuhan Anak Melayu Selangor Darul Ehsan Wilayah Persekutuan.

Ia dilancarkan oleh Pengerusi GMJ Azmi Abdul Hamid.

"Tindakan kerajaan ini merupakan penggadaian rakyat, hak rakyat, kepentingan rakyat demi kepentingan BN.

"Masyarakat sudah tenat dengan masalah judi, ramai yang terjebak dengan Ah Long mengapa mesti nak tambah lagi masalah?

"Yang akan untung hanya dua kumpulan iaitu tauke judi serta Ah Long akan juga dapat keuntungan besar dan mungkin yang BN turut akan memperoleh keuntungan kerana Kumpulan Berjaya akan terus memberikan sumbangan kepada BN," kata Khalid.

Tambah Khalid, rakyat perlu membantah kelulusan lesen judi kerana ia akan memberikan kesan buruk dalam masyarakat.

"Rakyat perlu membantah kelulusan lesen judi ini kerana ia akan memberikan kesan yang amat buruk kepada masyarakat.

"Tindakan kerajaan ini akan mempertaruhkan masa depan rakyat dan juga negara," katanya lagi. -TMI
