It was rather coincidental that just as I was telling Stephen about the common, black, seven-inch millipedes that one could find on Penang Hill or the Bukit Mertajam Hill, that we came across this uncommon yellow-striped millipede curled up on a tree trunk along the BM Hill track.

Selamat Datang Sdr Rafizi ke Dunia Blog!

Posted: 21 Aug 2010 09:46 AM PDT

Beberapa bulan lepas saya menceritakan serba-sedikit tentang Sdr Rafizi Ramli, 33 tahun, ketika beliau muncul di dalam forum GST.

Hari ini Sdr Rafizi Ramli melancarkan blognya http://www.rafiziramli.com

Saya boleh menyalahkan Sdr Rafizi kerana mengheret saya masuk Keadilan dan aktif berpolitik!

Saya mula mendengar namanya ketika di MCKK. Beliau meninggalkan MCKK setahun sebelum saya masuk, pada 1994. Namun penglibatan aktifnya di MCKK termasuk pelajar terbaik, pembahas terbaik Perbahasan Bahasa Melayu PPM 1992-1993, Presiden Kesatuan Pelajar serta Badan Revolusi Ugama menjadikannya nama yang disebut-sebut.

Saya turut aktif di dalam Perbahasan Bahasa Melayu dan Badan Revolusi Ugama apabila saya berada di tingkatan 5. Saya turut mengendalikan laman web MCKK pada waktu itu. Sekitar waktu itu saya menerima e-mel daripada Sdr Rafizi yang berada di Britain.

Beliau mungkin mula mengesan sokongan saya terhadap gerakan Reformasi. Maka beliau menggalakkan saya menulis untuk laman-laman web Reformasi sekitar tahun 2000. Tidak lama kemudian, seorang lagi senior yang terkemuka, Allahyarham Adlan Benan Omar menghubungi saya. Kedua-dua Rafizi dan Benan aktif di dalam Pemuda Keadilan ketika itu.

Pertemuan saya dengan Rafizi buat kali yang pertama merupakan apabila saya tiba di Britain untuk melanjutkan pengajian saya. Selepas tamat ijazah kejuruteraannya, Rafizi terus berada di London untuk kursus perakaunan bertauliahnya. Rafizi dan beberapa rakan MCKKnya menjemput saya di Heathrow.

Kira-kira sebulan selepas saya memulakan pengajian saya di London, saya bersama Rafizi mengaturkan program Nurul Izzah di London dan Dublin. Acara di London School of Economics sedikit kecoh tetapi Rafizi tidak gentar dengan sikap Kelab UMNO yang cuba menggagalkan forum di antara Izzah, Hizbi, Kelab UMNO dan UKEC.

Rafizi turut bertanggungjawab membawa saya ke demonstrasi anti-Perang Iraq yang berlangsung di London pada waktu itu.

Rafizi kemudian menumpukan masanya untuk karier beliau di Petronas dan Pharmaniaga. Namun beliau terus aktif melatih junior-junior MCKK dalam perbahasan dan hoki. Saya turut mendengar kisah lulusan IPTA di Petronas yang mendapat galakkan daripada Rafizi untuk melanjutkan pengajian dalam kursus profesional mereka di luar negara.

Tahun lepas, Rafizi kembali aktif di dalam Keadilan setelah dilantik ke Majlis Pimpinan Pusat serta Bendahari Keadilan Terengganu. Beliau turut memegang jawatan Ketua Eksekutif Pejabat Penasihat Ekonomi Negeri Selangor. Sekurang-kurangnya saya tidak ditinggalkan keseorangan dalam dunia politik!


THE CAKE

Posted: 21 Aug 2010 09:29 AM PDT

Cindy glanced nervously at the clock on the kitchen wall. Five minutes before midnight.



"They should be home any time now," she thought as she put the finishing touches on the chocolate cake she was frosting. It was the first time in her 12 years she had tried to make a cake from scratch, and to be honest, it wasn't exactly an aesthetic triumph. The cake was . . . well, lumpy. And the frosting was bitter, as if she had run out of sugar or something. Which, of course, she had.

And then there was the way the kitchen looked. Imagine a huge blender filled with all the fixings for chocolate cake -- including the requisite bowls, pans and utensils. Now imagine that the blender is turned on. High speed. With the lid off. Do you get the idea?

But Cindy wasn't thinking about the mess. She had created something, a veritable phoenix of flour and sugar rising out of the kitchen clutter. She was anxious for her parents to return home from their date so she could present her anniversary gift to them. She turned off the kitchen lights and waited excitedly in the darkness. When at last she saw the flash of the car headlights, she positioned herself in the kitchen doorway. By the time she heard the key sliding into the front door, she was THIS CLOSE to exploding.

Her parents tried to slip in quietly, but Cindy would have none of that. She flipped on the lights dramatically and trumpeted: "Ta-daaa!" She gestured grandly toward the kitchen table, where a slightly off-balance two-layer chocolate cake awaited their inspection.

But her mother's eyes never made it all the way to the table. "Just look at this mess!" she moaned. "How many times have I talked to you about cleaning up after yourself?"

"But Mom, I was only..."

"I should make you clean this up right now, but I'm too tired to stay up with you to make sure you get it done right," her mother said. "So you'll do it first thing in the morning."

"Honey," Cindy's father interjected gently, "take a look at the table."

"I know -- it's a mess," his wife said coldly. "The whole kitchen is a disaster. I can't stand to look at it." She stormed up the stairs and into her room, slamming the door shut behind her.

For a few moments Cindy and her father stood silently, neither one knowing what to say. At last she looked up at him, her eyes moist and red. "She never saw the cake," she said.

Unfortunately, Cindy's mother isn't the only parent who suffers from Situational Timbercular Glaucoma -- the occasional inability to see the forest for the trees. From time to time we all allow ourselves to be blinded to issues of long-term significance by Stuff That Seems Awfully Important Right Now -- but isn't. Muddy shoes, lost lunch money and messy kitchens are troublesome, and they deserve their place among life's frustrations. But what's a little mud -- even on new carpet -- compared to a child's self- esteem? Is a lost dollar more valuable than a youngster's emerging dignity? And while kitchen sanitation is important, is it worth the sacrifice of tender feelings and relationships?

I'm not saying that our children don't need to learn responsibility, or to occasionally suffer the painful consequences of their own bad choices. Those lessons are vital, and need to be carefully taught. But as parents, we must never forget that we're not just teaching lessons -- we're teaching children. That means there are times when we really need to see the mess in the kitchen.

And times when we only need to see the cake.

In Indian Kashmir: Muslims pressure Sikhs to convert or leave

Posted: 21 Aug 2010 09:10 AM PDT

It is a long-standing practice in Islamic warfare to invite the targeted population to convert before attacking. Indeed, it goes back to Muhammad himself:

"When you meet your enemies who are polytheists, invite them to three courses of action. If they respond to any one of these, you also accept it and withold yourself from doing them any harm. Invite them to (accept) Islam; if they respond to you, accept it from them and desist from fighting against them. ... If they refuse to accept Islam, demand from them the Jizya. If they agree to pay, accept it from them and hold off your hands. If they refuse to pay the tax, seek Allah's help and fight them...." (Sahih Muslim 19.4294)

Meanwhile, jihadist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani is urging the Sikhs to relax and ignore the letters. Easier said than done. More on this story : "Kashmir: Islamic groups pressuring Sikhs to convert", by Nirmala Carvalho for AsiaNews, August 20:

Srinagar (AsiaNews) - Some Sikhs living in Kashmir have received anonymous letters recently, urging them to "embrace Islam, join the protests against civilian killings or pack up and leave the Valley." In one letter, the anonymous writer said, "Since you are benefitting from the joys here, why can't you share the grief and sorrow of Kashmiris as well? We know you are afraid of bullets" but "hold protests inside your gurdwaras [Sikh temples] or leave."

For decades, Pakistan and India have been at loggerheads over the mountainous region. The Indian state of Jammu and Kashmir now occupies the eastern half of the territory. For years, it has been the scene of a Muslim insurgency dedicated to the reunification of the greater Kashmir region under Pakistani rule. Yesterday, hard-line separatist leader Syed Ali Shah Geelani tried to reassure Kashmir Sikhs. He told them to ignore the letters, and not feel threatened....

Like I have said before and many times over that tolerance is a one way street in Muslim majority countries and the funny thing in this case, is that, this part of the world belongs to Hindu India historically. The rest being artificial creations through Muslim conquests and terror - edit Jihad Watch


Sometimes, things don't happen the way we hope......

Posted: 21 Aug 2010 07:06 AM PDT

When I fall in love, it will be forever....that is what I believed when I was a little girl and still believe as one approaching my sunset years. However, some things are not meant to be for some people. One may have found the man/woman of her dreams and because of shortcomings or circumstances beyond their control, may also lose that person...

Regardless, sentimental me believes that once we fall in love with someone, we never ever stop loving that person for the rest of our lives.

That is why I always tell my older son never to fall in love easily and to be careful when losing his heart to a girl and to only fall in love if he knows for sure she is the one. Impossible for teenagers but you never know....(I started dating my husband when I was 16!!!)

In 2008, I saw a photo of my boy with a university course mate. They are both music majors - my son is majoring in violin and she is a voice major. My sixth sense told me that she is a very good girl and I asked him if he had any interest in her. And he laughed it off for he was with another girl then...

Months later, after he broke up with that girl, he called me and told me that he was with that girl.

Two months ago, they broke up. And my heart broke into a million pieces.

Honestly, I do not know who cried the most - my son or me :-). And I am still crying so much as I write this post.

The reason for the break up was that she was going to Japan for her studies and would be graduating soon. At that time, my boy was busy with his band and did not spend enough time to give her the attention she deserved or needed so things changed... Also, in his free time, DOTA was a main obstacle standing between the two of them. Sighs.

At 4.am. one morning, he called me up to tell me that it was over.

I tell you, the world came to a standstill that night and things have never been the same again. We all feel as though we have lost a part of our family. My son and my whole family love her so much and always miss her.

She comes from such a lovely family and in 2008, her parents came all the way from Kelantan for my 25th wedding anniversary. Politically too, her parents and I are from the same camp :-).

Sighs.

My son told me that he will wait for her even if it takes ten years....I know how much he loves her and we all do too!

I still keep in touch with her very often via FB or Skype and will always love her and hope and pray for a miracle that perhaps the two of them will be together again. That is why I put up my post on GIVE IT WINGS.

The point that I want to make in this post is simple. When we have someone in our lives, we must treasure that person and not take him/her for granted. I just watched her graduation concert videos and she is spectacular to say the least and I know she will become famous one day!

Yes, my son lost her. A very big loss indeed. But those 1 year ten months or was it 1 year months a beautiful period for all of us. How I wish I could turn the clock back...

Love is like a rose...it has to be nurtured, watered with love, attention, tender loving care, tolerance and understanding. Without all that, love will wither away....

I know I love to put up jokes about men and women and laugh over them but the truth is, if we have someone in our lives, we really have to cherish, treasure, honor and love that person for always.

Love never dies. We can never stop loving someone once we lose our heart to them.

And whoever you are with, whoever you have married or whoever you love, really love them with all you have, who you are, all you can give.

Some things are not meant to be...but we can treasure the memories, the moments and know that deep in our hearts....love never dies and will live on...I know we will always love her.

Here she is singing one of my FAVOURITE songs by Edith Piaf : La Vie En Rose in her graduation concert last week.




We love you, dearie!! And we are so proud of you...Sometimes, things are not meant to be but we can always hope for miracles while treasuring those memories. You have a very special place in our hearts and we will always love you!!!

UMNO Bikin Karpal Jadi Keliru Terhadap Islam

Posted: 21 Aug 2010 07:45 AM PDT

Kenyataan Karpal tolak hukum hudud pandangan peribadi, kata Nik Aziz

Mursyidul Am PAS Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat berpendapat kenyataan pengerusi DAP Karpal Singh yang tidak bersetuju dengan cadangan PAS untuk melaksanakan hukum hudud adalah pandangan peribadi pemimpin parti pembangkang itu.

Menteri Besar Kelantan berkata suara-suara sumbang yang timbul mengenai hukum hudud adalah pendapat peribadi dan bukan kenyataan rasmi parti itu.

"Pemimpin DAP lain senyap, hanya dia yang timbul isu itu. Ini kerana apa yang ditimbulkan oleh pemimpin DAP itu merupakan pendapat perseorangan dan bukannya keputusan parti," katanya kepada pemberita ketika ditemui di rumahnya di Pulau Melaka, di sini hari ini.

Nik Abdul Aziz berkata demikian ketika diminta mengulas kenyataan Karpal semalam yang tidak bersetuju dengan cadangan beliau pada Khamis lepas bahawa cara terbaik menangani masalah jenayah dan sosial ialah meminda undang-undang sivil dan digantikan dengan undang-undang hudud.

"Adalah silap bagi orang seperti Nik Aziz bercakap sesuatu yang tidak boleh diperkenalkan di negara ini. Perlembagaan Persekutuan hanya membenarkan Kanun Keseksaan dan undang-undang sivil lain dan tidak ada ruang untuk undang-undang hudud," kata Karpal.

Mursyidul Am PAS itu berkata beliau yakin Karpal menentang hukum hudud kerana tidak mendapat penerangan yang jelas mengenainya.

"Kebanyakan pemimpin DAP adalah terdiri daripada golongan berpelajaran, mereka sepatutnya mendapat penerangan mengenai perkara itu (hudud) daripada mereka yang arif di peringkat pusat," katanya dan menurutnya beliau sedia memberikan penerangan mengenai hukum hudud kepada Karpal.

Ketika ditanya apakah tindakan PAS untuk mengelak wujudnya suara-suara sumbang daripada rakan politiknya berhubung isu hukum hudud itu, Nik Abdul Aziz berkata ia adalah sesuatu yang sukar.

"Nak mengelak tu memang tak boleh... tugas kita ialah memberi, menerangkan kepada manusia jalan ke arah kebaikan," katanya. — Bernama


Karpal Cadang Perogol Kanak-kanak Dihukum Mati

KUALA LUMPUR: Pengerusi DAP kebangsaan Karpal Singh hari ini meminta kerajaan meminda Seksyen 376 Kanun Keseksaan agar perogol kanak-kanak boleh dikenakan hukuman mati.

Karpal berkata walaupun sebelum ini beliau memperjuangkan agar hukumn mati dimansuhkan, tetapi memandangkan saban hari, semakin banyak kanak-kanak menjadi mangsa penjenayah, termasuk perogol, maka sudah tiba masanya kerajaan bertindak menjaga kepentingan awam dengan melaksanakan tindakan lebih tegas dan berkesan.

"Ini boleh memberi mesej jelas kepada mereka yang bercita-cita untuk melakukan kesalahan bahawa undang-undang tidak akan lagi bertolak ansur dengan perbuatan merogol kanak-kanak yang tidak bersalah," katanya dalam kenyataan di sini Sabtu.

Karpal berkata kes terbaru bahawa seorang kanak-kanak berusia 10 tahun didakwa telah dirogol oleh pemandu bas sekolah yang dinaikinya, menuntut perhatian khusus tentang perlunya hukuman sedia ada bagi perbuatan itu, dikaji semula.

Kata beliau mengikut Seksyen 376 (2) (e), Kanun Keseksaan, hukuman bagi kesalahan merogol kanak-kanak berusia 12 tahun ke bawah ialah penjara tidak melebihi 30 tahun dan sebatan.

Beliau berkata memang tidak dapat dinafikan bahawa kesalahan tertuduh perlu dibuktikan melebihi keraguan munasabah, tetapi dalam kes di mana tertuduh didapati melakukan perbuatan demikian secara terang-terangn serta disokong oleh saksi berwibawa yang melihat perbuatan itu dilakukan, maka tiada masalah untuk membuktikan kes berkenaan di luar keraguan munasabah.

"Saya sedar tentang bahaya kemungkinan seseorang yang tidak bersalah, dikenakan hukuman. Pelaksanaan hukuman mati tidak boleh diubah kembali. Kesengsaraan yang dialami seseorang insan yang tidak bersalah, tetapi dikenakan hukuman mati, memang tidak dapat digambarkan," katanya.

Bagaimanapun, kata beliau, perbuatan merogol kanak-kanak yang tidak berdosa di hadapan orang lain, menuntut agar undang-undang sedia ada, dibuat pindaan. - BERNAMA


Ulasan GB

Karpal menolak hukum hudud, tetapi pada masa yang sama tanpa menyedarinya, beliau juga yang mencadangkan hudud dilaksanakan.

Cuma Karpal tidak mengetahui intipati hukum hudud, lantas beliau menolaknya. Beliau dikelirukan selama ini tentang hukum Islam itu. Oleh siapa? Oleh UMNO. UMNO sentiasa memberikan gambaran negatif terhadap hudud dengan matlamat untuk menjauhkan bukan Islam terhadap PAS.

Fitrah manusia, tanpa mengira agama, tidak suka kepada jenayah, waimma apa jenayah sekalipun. Dan Tuhan Yang Maha Tahu menyediakan undang-undang dan peraturan untuk manusia sejagat - hudud namanya - untuk manusia hidup secara sejahtera dan harmoni agar pesalah jenayah dihukum.

Tetapi oleh kerana hudud itu berada di dalam perundangan agama Islam, maka mereka yang bukan Islam mungkin skeptikal, apakah perlaksanaan hukum itu nanti akan memaksa mereka menganut Islam, atau setidak-tidaknya satu pengesahan (endorsement) dari dirinya terhadap kebaikan Islam?

Mungkin Guan Eng yang banyak membaca tentang tamadun Islam berupaya membantu PAS menjelaskan kepada Pengerusi DAP tersebut. Tapi malang sekali, UMNO kini pula yang menyusahkan Guan Eng dengan fitnah terbarunya konon masjid di Pulau Pinang menggantikan nama Agong dengan namanya di dalam khutbah Jumaat.

UMNO selamanya musuh yang nyata terhadap Islam.


Malaya Burma Star ( KARIM GHANI)

Posted: 21 Aug 2010 06:44 AM PDT

Malaya Burma Star ( KARIM GHANI)

Karim Ghani was born in Sodugudi, Ilayangudi, a politician in South-East Asia of Indian origin Karim Ghani. Before the Second World War Karim Ghani was a parliamentary secretary in Burma under Dr. Ba Maw. During World War II, Ghani came to be the Minister FOR STATE IN Subhas Bose's Azad Hind government and was in Malaya. He was also the manager of "The Muslim Publishing House", the editor of the Malayasian Tamil daily Malayan Nanban, as well as the editor of the Malay edition Dawn, under the name Sinaran. Ghani was involved also involved with the Muslim League and was the president of the All Malaya Muslim Missionary Society (AMMMS) and an official in several other organizations. After the end pf World War II, Ghani was involved in South-East Asian Muslim politics, most notably being involved in the Maria Hertogh riots in Singapore in 1950.

Maria Hertogh Riots

The Maria Hertogh riots or Natrah riots started on 11 December 1950 in Singapore, following the court decision to give the custody of Maria Hertogh (or Bertha Hertogh), then 13, to her biological Dutch Catholic parents after she had been raised as a Muslim under the care of Aminah binte Mohamed, whom she regarded as her mother. The riots lasted till noon on 13 December, with 18 killed, 173 injured and many properties damaged – the worst incident of its kind ever witnessed in Singapore. The court decision in August 1950 and the widespread news coverage of the legal battle for custody had evoked widespread agitations in the Malayan and South-East Asian Muslim population who regarded Maria as a follower of the Muslim faith and came to interpret press coverage as portraying Maria as a Christia. nAn organization calling itself the Nadra Action Committee was formally constituted under the leadership of Karim Ghani. This extreme organization solicited support among local Muslims by distributing free copies of its newspaper, the Dawn (not the Dawn, an English paper published in Pakistan). Karim Ghani had also made an open speech at the Sultan Mosque on 8 December in which he mentioned jihad as a final resort. Ghani's comments were followed by widespread riots and violence beginning on 11 December and continued till the 13th. In total, 18 people were killed, among whom were seven Europeans or Eurasians, two police officers, and nine rioters shot by the police or military, 173 were injured, many of them seriously, 119 vehicles were damaged, and at least two buildings were set on fire. Subsequently, two weeks of 24-hour curfew were imposed, and it was a long time before complete law and order was re-established.

After the riot, the police set up a special investigation unit which detained 778 people, among them Karim Ghani, who was arrested along with several members of the Nadra Action Committee and held at the detention camp on Saint John's Island for 15 months under Emergency Regulation 20 for his part in the riots before being released on grounds of poor health.

Azad Hind- Free India , this was the slogan used by the freedom fighters of India.

Karim Ghany is alleged to have pioneered the first Jawi Scripted Malay newspaper in Malaya. He was a prolific writer who could write in English, malay, jawi, arabic, urdu and tamil.

Karim also started the first Tamil newspaper, The Malaya Nanban.

Maria was represented by David Marshal a prominent lawyer from Singapore who in his later years had to remark, " if this case would have been heard in any other circumstances the verdict would have been otherwise" He was referering to the last hurrah of the British who wanted to salvage their christian pride by admonishing the weak malay muslim populace.

In the riots that followed many people were killed and many a muslims who abetted the rioters were charged. Among them were many Tamil Muslim leaders who were sentenced to be hanged. These Tamil Muslim traders were the Islamic icons for the newly independent Malaya.

Karim Ghany was a Tamil Muslim (modern day Tamil Nadu in the south of India).

He was given an ultimatum by the British government, that he was to be banished to a country of his choice. He chose Pakistan and he died a devastated man in the newly formed Islamic country.

M'sia ranks 37th, Finland (a country of extremes) is top - Newsweek (or News Weak)

Posted: 21 Aug 2010 10:25 AM PDT

Helsinki, capital of Finland


Newsweek ranks Malaysia as the world's 37th best country and among the best in Asia, just below Japan (9) and Singapore (20) in terms of education and economic dynamism. Top three are Finland, Switzerland and Sweden (here).

I dont know how precise Newsweek's ratings are. Obviously, some Finns didn't agree with it at all, citing the domestic and social problems as criteria to be taken into consideration.

Malaysia is also listed as the eighth best in education among the upper middle-income countries. Singapore ranks top in the economic dynamism category. Newsweek attributed it to Singapore's 'manageable' size.

The Guardian said, for a country of extremes, Finland doesnt deserve such a rating. "But what about suicides, depression, alcoholism and our cold, dark winters?" many Finns protested yesterday after the announcement by the magazine (here).

"But gloating does not come naturally to us, even though Finland has topped the OECD global education assessment three times in a row. There is an underside to the educational excellence. Two bloody school massacres, in 2007 and 2008, claimed 20 lives," it added.

Meanwhile, Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh tops the ranking of the world's best leader. Read the article 'India The Best Place To Fly A Kite...' by Times of India.

Nama Guan Eng di Khutbah: Umno Ahmad Zahid dah bankrup idea? Laporan polis telah dibuat!

Posted: 21 Aug 2010 05:20 AM PDT

'UMNO Pulau Pinang Protes Guna Nama Ketua Menteri Dalam Khutbah' - itulah tajuk berita di Bernama semalam.

Pada hari ini, mstar melaporkan bahawa Badan Perhubungan Umno Pulau Pinang yang diwakili Naib Ketua Pemuda Umno negeri, Ir. Shaik Hussein Mydin telah membuat laporan polis di Balai Polis Butterworth berhubung isu berkenaan. - 'Doa Khutbah: Nama Guan Eng Terus Disebut' di mStar Online.

Maklumlah, Bernama dan mStar Online jentera media Umno-BN.

Exco Hal-Ehwal Agama negeri, Abdul Malik Abul Kassim tidak menolak kemungkinan bahawa sesetengah jawatankuasa masjid menggunakan isu tersebut untuk mensabotaj kerajaan negeri.

@ Malaysiakini

Kerajaan negeri Pulau Pinang menafikan sekeras-kerasnya bahawa nama Ketua Menteri Lim Guan Eng menggantikan nama Yang di-Pertuan Agong dalam khutbah Jumaat yang dibaca di beberapa masjid di negeri itu.

Exco Hal-Ehwal Agama negeri, Abdul Malik Abul Kassim berkata siasatan awal mendapati ianya tidak berlaku kerana teks khutbah Jumaat, yang disediakan oleh Jabatan Agama Islam negeri, tidak menggunakan nama Lim.
Katanya, hanya orang yang tidak waras sahaja yang akan menggantikan nama Yang di-Pertuan Agong dalam khutbah Jumaat.
Abdul Malik berkata, beliau telah membuat siasatan awal dan mendapati kejadian itu tidak berlaku seperti yang didakwa oleh Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi yang juga pengerusi perhubungan Umno negeri.

Abdul Malik menjelaskan, teks khutbah yang disediakan oleh Jabatan Agama Islam Pulau Pinang (JAIPP) tidak menggantikan nama Yang di-Pertuan Agong dengan nama Lim, seperti yang didakwa.

"Dan kalau mereka tidak baca teks sekalipun, saya percaya hanya orang yang tidak waras sahaja yang akan ganti nama Yang di-Pertuan Agong dalam khutbah," katanya lagi.

Tambahnya, dakwaan itu juga tidak menyebut dengan jelas masjid yang terbabit, sebaliknya hanya menamakan kawasan Permatang Pauh, Jelutong dan Tasek Gelugor.

Ditanya lanjut, beliau berkata kerajaan negeri tidak akan mengambil tindakan lanjut atas dakwaan itu kerana "tidak timbul isu."

"Isu ini sengaja diada-adakan, sebab sememangnya tiada isu. BN yang sengaja wujudkan isu ini," katanya lagi ketika dihubungi Malaysiakini hari ini.
Abdul Malik juga berkata, sekiranya Ahmad Zahid mempunyai maklumat mengenai kejadian tersebut, beliau hendaklah membuat laporan supaya dakwaan tersebut dapat disiasat.

"Kalau dia ada maklumat, sepatutnya dia buat laporan kepada kerajaan negeri, atau kepada polis atau kepada pejabat mufti, bukannya pergi beri kenyataan kepada media," katanya lagi.

Sementara itu, bercakap dalam satu sidang media pagi ini, Abdul Malik juga berkata kerajaan negeri serta JAIPP tidak menerima sebarang arahan lisan mahupun bertulis untuk menukar nama tersebut dalam teks khutbah.

Beliau juga tidak menolak kemungkinan bahawa sesetengah jawatankuasa masjid menggunakan isu tersebut untuk mensabotaj kerajaan negeri.

PAS Dan Operasi Lalang

Posted: 20 Aug 2010 09:53 PM PDT

Operasi Lalang - sesuatu yang begitu digeruni oleh rakyat Malaysia. Satu peristiwa hitam yang dilancarkan pada 27 Oktober 1987 di era Mahathir sebagai Perdana Menteri dan juga Menteri Dalam Negeri oleh polis Malaysia bagi menangkap mereka yang konon dikatakan mengeruhkan suasana politik 1987.

Selepas pemilihan Pertubuhan Kebangsaan Melayu Bersatu (UMNO) pada tahun 1987, UMNO telah berpecah kepada dua kumpulan, iaitu Pasukan A yang diketuai oleh Dr Mahathir di bawah UMNO Baru dan Pasukan B yang diketuai oleh Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah di bawah parti Semangat 46. Semangat 46 kemudian menubuhkan sebuah parti campuran dengan Parti Islam Se-Malaysia (PAS) bernama Angkatan Perpaduan Ummah untuk bertanding dengan UMNO BN.

Untuk menentang Angkatan Perpaduan Ummah, Operasi Lalang dilancarkan. Dalam Operasi Lalang ini, 106 ahli politik terutama parti pembangkang ditahan di bawah ISA dan pembatalan dua akhabar harian berlesen, The Star dan Sin Chew Jit Poh serta dua akhbar mingguan, The Sunday Star dan Watan.

Operasi Lalang ini menimbulkan kontroversi kerana mereka yang 'bersalah' terlepas. Sebaliknya pemimpin pembangkang yang berada di tepi 'arus' telah ditangkap dan dipenjarakan di Kem Tahan Kamunting, Taiping, selama 2 tahun atau lebih.

Namun, "hikmah" terbesar daripada Operasi Lalang ialah pada pilihanraya 1990, UMNO BN hanya mampu memenangi 127 kerusi daripada 180 kerusi dalam Dewan Rakyat, ini merupakan 70.6% daripada jumlah kerusi, dan merupakan satu penurunan sebanyak 2.4% berbanding pilihan raya yang terakhir; bilangan undi sebanyak 53.4% merupakan satu pengurangan sebanyak 7.8%. UMNO-BN hilang kuasa di Kelantan di tangan PAS-Angkatan Perpaduan Ummah dan Sabah ditangan Parti Bersatu Sabah (PBS).

Lim Kit Siang yang ditahan di dalam Operasi Lalang dilantik sebagai Ketua Pembangkang. Mohd Sabu yang di kurung di Kamunting sehingga Januari 1990 telah menang di dalam pilihanraya 1990 mengalahkan Datuk Annuar Musa dengan majoriti hampir 8,000 undi, dan menjadi Ahli Parlimen Nilam Puri pada masa itu.

Walaupun parti-parti pembangkang memperolehi lebih kurang 30% jumlah kerusi akibat pembahagian sempadan yang senget sebelah oleh Suruhanjaya Pilihanraya, namun pada keseluruhannya parti pembangkang ketika itu memperoleh 46.6% daripada jumlah undi.

Hal yang hampir sama berlaku pada pilihanraya 1999 dan 2008.

Sebelum pilihanraya 1999, satu konpirasi berlaku dimana mantan Timbalan Perdana Menteri Anwar Ibrahim, telah ditahan oleh pihak polis atas tuduhan-tuduhan yang dianggap secara meluas seperti liwat sebagai ditimbulkan oleh alasan politik dan pertentangan pendapat antara Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohammad dengan timbalannya.

Rakyat seluruh negara memberikan protesnya dengan menyokong Barisan Alternatif yang dibentuk pembangkan menghadapi UMNO BN, dan di dalam pilihanraya 1999 itu UMNO BN hanya mampu meraih kerusi parlimennya sebanyak 148, jatuh 8.6% berbanding 162 kerusi yang diperoleh pada tahun 1995.

Barisan Alternatif mensasarkan untuk menghapuskan majorti 2/3 UMNO BN di Parlimen, namun tidak kesampaian. Namun apa yang menarik, PAS mencapai prestasi yang melonjak. Selain daripada mengekalkan negeri Kelantan, parti ini juga mengambil alih kerajaan Trengganu daripada BN. Kekuatan PAS di Parlimen bertambah dari hanya 7 kerusi pada tahun 1995 sehingga 27 kerusi, iaitu satu lompatan hampir empat kali ganda.

Serupa juga pada peringkat negeri, kekuatannya bertambah hampir tiga kali ganda dari 33 kerusi sehingga 98 kerusi dalam pilihan raya ini. Berdasarkan keputusan ini, Ustaz Abdul Hadi Awang dari PAS mengambil alih kepimpinan pembangkang dalam Parlimen yang dipegang oleh Lim Kit Siang daripada parti DAP.

Di dalam pilihanraya 2008 pula, rakyat Malaysia telah menyaksikan keganasan dan kezaliman polis terhadap beberapa siri perhimpunan rakyat seperti perhimpunan Bersih 2007 untuk menuntut pilihan raya yang adil dan disertai oleh 100, 000 orang. Tian Chua yang merupakan Ketua Penerangan KeADILan telah ditahan di bawah Akta Polis, Seksyen 27(5)(a), di Johor Bahru, jam 5.15 petang pada 9 Disember 2007 kerana menjadi penggerak perhimpunan Bersih itu.

Polis juga telah bertindak ganas pada perhimpunan rakyat di Kuala Terengganu 2007. Polis telah melepaskan peluru hidup kepada Suwandi dan Azman. Malangnya anggota polis yang menembak dilepaskan, Suwandi dan Azman pula yang didakwa di bawah Seksyen 149 Kanun Keseksaan.

Akibatnya pada pilihanraya 2008, UMNO Barisan Nasional telah dinafikan majoriti 2/3 dan hanya boleh membentuk kerajaan pusat dengan majoriti mudah (iaitu lebih daripada 1/2 jumlah kerusi, tetapi kurang daripada 2/3 jumlah kerusi). Pembangkang yang membentuk Pakatan Rakyat akhirnya berjaya mencapai sasaran: menafikan 2/3 majoriti. Menariknya Tian Chua yang dibelsah cukup-cukup oleh polis telah dihantar rakyat ke Parlimen!

Bagi Dewan Undangan Negeri pula, Barisan Nasional gagal mempertahankan kerajaannya di negeri Kedah, Pulau Pinang, Perak dan Selangor serta gagal mencapai hasratnya untuk membentuk kerajaan di negeri Kelantan.

Pilihan raya kali ini juga melihatkan kegagalan banyak ahli politik veteran mempertahankan kerusi mereka, antaranya termasuk Koh Tsu Koon, Samy Vellu, Shahrizat Abdul Jalil, M. Kayveas, Zainuddin Maidin.

Harus diperhatikan bahawa Barisan Nasional hanya berjaya meraih kemenangan besar di Sabah, Sarawak dan Johor atas sebab pembahagian kawasan parlimen yang memihak kepadanya - banyak kerusi diwujudkan di kawasan-kawasan ini, tetapi kepadatan penduduknya adalah jauh lebih rendah daripada kepadatan penduduk di negeri-negeri lain seperti Selangor, Perak dan Pulau Pinang. Rekod kekalahan Barisan Nasional kali ini adalah yang paling buruk diikuti Pilihan Raya 1969 dan 1999.

GB memutarkan kembali kisah-kisah itu untuk memberikan satu gambaran jelas kepada semua ahli-ahli PAS dan Pakatan Rakyat yang begitu takut dengan Operasi Lalang.

PAS seperti sudah menjadi pondan semenjak era UG. Diperburukkan lagi oleh penyokong-penyokong taksub UG sehinggakan PAS menjadi semakin hari semakin lesu lantarannya. Ditambah pula dengan YB-YB khianat yang sudah tidak lagi bersama rakyat dan perjuangan, tetapi telah leka dan alpa dengan kemewahan, pangkat dan kekayaan.

Ceramah-ceramah PAS sudah lesu, ceramah pemimpin-pemimpin tertinggi parti terutama dari mereka yang dikaitkan dengan UG sudah kurang, dan kalau ada pun tidak mendapat sambutan rakyat kerana sudah tiada "roh perjuangan" di dalam ceramah-ceramah tersebut. Pemimpin tertinggi parti adanya sudah tidak bersama rakyat lagi di dalam perhimpunan-perhimpunan seperti Perhimpunan Anti-ISA, Anti-Kenaikan Harga dan sebagainya kerana sayangkan kedudukan dan takut ditangkap polis!

Malah sudah ada pemimpin PAS yang beralasan "selsema", itu sebab tak dapat hadir di perhimpunan. Belum lagi hilang tangan hilang kaki seperti para pejuang peperangan Badar, Uhud dan Khandak.

Pemimpin PAS sudah dijangkiti penyakit futur (lembab). Futur ialah suatu penyakit yang dapat menimpa sebahagian aktivis dan akan menimpa mereka secara praktikal (dalam bentuk perbuatan). Tingkatannya yang paling rendah berupa kemalasan, menunda-nunda atau melambat-lambatkan. Sering memberi alasan bahawa tugas dakwah itu sukar dan tidak mampu untuk melaksanakannya, meminimakan penglibatan diri dalam misi dakwah organisasi atau sekadar menawar diri untuk membuat tugasan yang paling mudah sahaja. Sedangkan kemuncak penyakit futur ini adalah berhenti sama sekali setelah sebelumnya rajin dan bersemangat.

Ada yang memberikan alasan "wala' kepada pemimpin" untuk terus mempertahankan pemimpin yang futur ini.

GB sudah mengulasnya sebelum ini sempena sambutan Maal Hijrah. Petikan:


PAS kini sedang melalui proses perkembangan dan kematangan sebagai sebuah organisasi dakwah dan politik sehingga timbul fenomena yang dilihat seperti ianya digoncang sekuat-kuatnya bagi melihat keutuhannya untuk mengharungi cabaran di era baru.

Zaman transisi dari sebuah organisasi dakwah yang sifatnya begitu tradisional kepada sebuah organisasi yang progresif untuk berdepan dengan cabaran-cabaran baru seperti globalisasi, ledakan teknologi maklumat, diikuti dengan kehadiran golongan masyarakat yang berdasarkan pengetahuan (k-community) dan seumpamanya memerlukan perubahan kepimpinan dan struktural.

Ia sekaligus menyaksikan sudah berlalunya zaman "zon selesa" untuk pemimpin dan organisasi parti untuk sekadar mempertahankan status quo.

Tulisan ini GB bawa untuk sama-sama kita renungkan mengenai kepincangan yang sedang dialami oleh PAS kini, sebagai satu bahan penelitian untuk menerima seadanya apa yang berlaku kini sebagai satu "sunatullah" untuk mentransformasikan PAS kepada sebuah organisasi dakwah dan politik yang lebih berjaya.

Suka atau tidak suka, perubahan pasti berlaku. Tidak ada dua hari yang bernar-benar serupa pada manusia dan sekalian alam, begitulah kepada PAS. Kesemua faktor perubahan berlaku dengan mengakui adanya nilai konstans - iaitu dasar perjuangan yang tetap.

Hari ini tidak ada sesuatu pun yang tersembunyi lagi. Kejayaan dan kegagalan, kekuatan dan kelemahan sesbuah organisasi dan kepimpinannya diteliti, dibedah, disiasat, dianalisa dan didokumentasikan di bilik-bilik kuliah universiti di dalam pelbagai matapelajaran di dalam bentuk "case study" dan PAS tidak terlepas darinya.

Malah dalam beberapa keadaan ia kini menjadi desertasi untuk seseorang bergelar sarjana dan pemegang PhD.

Zaman untuk merajuk, zaman untuk bersembunyi, zaman untuk mempertahankan sikap "futur" telah tersangat semalam.

Persoalan "adab jemaah" yang ditimbulkan oleh beberapa rakan di lingkaran usrah-usrah kini perlu ditafsirkan dengan parameter baru. "Adab jemaah" bukan lagi dengan mengakui keperluan untuk mengkritik secara berbisik atau apa yang dikatakan "mengikut saluran parti". Cara itu sudah terlalu semalam, sudah ketinggalan zaman.

Kini sudah ada istilah-istilah baru yang mengambil tempat yang diterima sebagai "adab jemaah", seperti "wistle-blowing" - satu kaedah di mana ahli organisasi mendedahkan kepincangan yang dikesannya secara terbuka, "pengurusan strategik" di mana penetapan visi, misi dan objektif organisasi dibuat secara telus dan dipacu bersama oleh pemimpin dan ahli serta "etika professional" dimana nilai-nilai sejagat diakui diterima pakai oleh segenap lapisan petugas dan pekerja organisasi. Mereka yang berdiam diri terhadap kepincangan dan berrahsia untuk menutup kelemahan dilihat sebagai "tidak beradab" malah dikira bersubahabat dengan kegagalan organisasi di zaman kontemporari ini.


Tanpa melupai fakta bahawa sebagai sebuah organisasi dakwah, PAS akan menghadapi tribulasi-tribulasi, tetapi di dalam bentuk baru. PAS akan menempuh gelombang tribulasi Badar, Uhud dan Khandaqnya sendiri, malah PAS akan mengharungi "Perjanjian Hudaibiyah" dan "fathul Makkah"nya sendiri.

Sebagai entiti politik pula PAS perlu bersedia untuk berdepan dengan mehnah baru. Perlu memperlengkapkan diri untuk diheret ke mahkamah bila-bila masa. Perlu bersedia menghadapi tantangan daripada ahlinya sendiri yang akan mencabar kepimpinan yang futur (lembab). Perlu menerima hakikat bahawa struktur yang ada boleh dirombak bila-bila masa pabila ia dilihat sudah tidak mampu menatangi zamannya. Kitar hayatnya (Life cycle) akan menetapkan bahawa proses kematangan parti tidak lagi menunggu pasang-surut sokongan terhadapnya.



Justeru itu, kita ingin menyatakan kepada polis, kepada UMNO BN. Teruskan rancanganmu untuk Operasi Lalang II jika ada. Masukkan Anwar ke dalam penjara sekali lagi jika anda berani. Masyarakat dunia akan saksikan UMNO BN dikuburkan pada pilihanraya akan datang!

Kepada seluruh ahli PAS dan Pakatan Rakyat, JANGAN TAKUT!

I am no traitor, Nurul tells the ‘patriot’

Posted: 21 Aug 2010 04:09 AM PDT

Free Malaysia Today

By Ken Vin Lek FRI, 20 AUG 2010 14:10

KUALA LUMPUR: PKR's Lembah Pantai MP Nurul Izzah Anwar has denied committing treachery as alleged by Defence Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The minister had lambasted the opposition politician over her statements regarding Malaysia's submarines, which were published in the Indonesian newspaper, Kompas.

He claimed that Nurul, the daughter of Opposition Leader Anwar Ibrahim, had tarnished the nation's image and put its security at risk.

However, Nurul begged to differ.

Speaking to FMT, she said the label "national traitor" was more befitting for a minister who abused his power and indulged in corruption.

"If it is true that the minister is a patriot, why then is he not supporting the MACC (Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission) probe on the commission paid to Perimekar Sdn Bhd for the purchase of the Scorpene submarines as stated by the Dewan Rakyat speaker on July 2.

"Is it not the trait of a true traitor who uses public coffers to pay the high costs for the submarine to the government's 'golden boy' (Abdul Razak Baginda) consulting company and to purchase equipment or the multiplied cost of projects to fill the pockets of the 'chosen ones'?" she asked.

Nurul said her comments which appeared in Kompas were based on the official answer given by the defence minister on March 17 in the Dewan Rakyat about one of the submarines not being able to dive because of technical problems.

'I am ready to be investigated'

Despite the Royal Malaysian Navy having filed a police report against her, Nurul stood by her statements.

"I am ready to be investigated and I hope that the investigations will bring to light other issues relating to the purchase of the submarines," she said.

In a statement yesterday, Nurul also pointed out that the problems regarding the submarine were common knowledge.

"In light of the image and national security of the country which have been apparently affected by my statement, I would like to bring up a statement made by the minister on the very same day who said that technical problems like this are also faced by many other countries all over the world.

"If this information regarding the status of submarines is available openly all over the world, where is the rationale with regards to my statement threatening national security?" she said.

Nurul also quoted an Aug 6 Bernama article, which revealed that the navy was only conducting its integrated navy exercise once, instead of three times, a year in order to save cost.

According to her, this was a greater threat to national security.

"What would be the reaction of the enemies if they found out that the navy only performs such training once a year. I fear for the country which has wide coastal areas to only conduct such tests only once a year," she said.

In the interview with the Indonesian daily, Nurul was asked to  comment on the submarine scandal being investigated by the French authorities and was quoted as saying, "The submarine purchased by the Malaysian government cannot dive and the weaponry which was purchased has clearly expired."

The alleged corruption in the sales of the two Scorpene submarines purchased by Malaysia from the French shipbuilder DCN is currently being probed by French judicial officials.

The case was opened at the request of Malaysian rights group Suaram, which alleged that DCN paid a commission of 114 million euros (RM635 million) Perimekar Sdn Bhd, which is owned by Abdul Razak Baginda, a close associate of the Prime Minister, Najib Razak.

Zahid previously said there was no need for any investigations to be carried out by the MACC citing that the deal was approved by the Finance Ministry and was in accordance with the procurement procedures despite the revelation of the hefty sum of commission paid to Perimekar.

UNDERSTANDING MEN AND WOMEN :-)

Posted: 21 Aug 2010 03:09 AM PDT

To all women: On behalf of all men I would like to clarify a few points:



* The floor is considered an acceptable clothing storage location.
* Never ask me to purchase feminine products. Assume that I will come home with the wrong thing.
* When watching TV hugging is always fine because I can still see the screen. Kissing should only be done during timeouts and commercials. Questions should also be limited to this period as you stand a much better chance of getting an immediate response.
* When we are watching your show and I change the channels during a commercial do not hassle me that they are over to change the channel back. I always know when the timing is right. Also, when we are channel surfing do not ask me to go back, there was a good reason why I skipped it.
* If you need help with the laundry, I am more than willing to carry it from the bedroom to the washer. In my mind this is half the chore and I am now free to return to the couch.
* If I mention that a male friend of mine is allowed to do something it is not necessary for you to call his wife/girlfriend to discuss it.
* If you don't like the way I am driving close your eyes. And I would appreciate it if you would refrain from making that reverse inhaling alarmed noise. I haven't hit anything yet and if I do it will be your fault.
* I go clothes shopping to buy, never to look.
* Just tell me what you want me to wear before I get dressed. And remember that this takes me less than ten minutes no matter what the occasion is. After all I am getting dressed, not getting ready.
* Don't ask me if I prefer one outfit over another or if a certain accessory should be worn or not. I consider this a no win situation and would rather just wait for you to get dressed while watching TV.
* If you want me to put the seat down when I am finished then you should leave the seat up when you are finished. It's only fair. And stop giving me a hard time about missing the bowl. What do you expect from an organ that has a brain of its own.
* I will cook anything as long as it is on the BBQ.
* Yelling to me across the house sounds exactly like stadium crowd background noise to me. I am not ignoring you.

Thank you for your understanding,
From all men.
