LEON URIS’ ‘THE HAJ’: HOW MUCH OF IT IS TRUE THEN WHEN THE NOVEL WAS SET IN, AND NOW, IN THE AFTERMATH OF THE ARAB SPRING, PART I AND ARAB SPRING, PART II WHICH WAS THWARTED?

…CAN ANYONE SWALLOW A WAD OF CASH IN HIS STOMACH AND RETRIEVE IT THE NEXT MORNING?
By Mansor Puteh



‘The Haj’ is an epic novel by Leon Uris, who had earlier come up with ‘Exodus’, a novel I have not yet read which I will do once if I can get hold of a copy of the novel.

I had seen copies of ‘Exodus’ in the bookstores many years before but did not feel necessary to check it out. And not too long ago, I found a used one in a charity store at a hospital but give it a miss.

THE STAR-SPANGLED BANNER DOES NOT FLY PROUDLY AROUND THE WORLD ANYMORE AS AMERICA CONTINUES TO BOMB AMERICANISM IN MANY ARAB AND MUSLIM COUNTRIES.

…HOW MANY AMERICANS OUTSIDE OF THE COUNTRY ARE HAPPY TO SAY THEY ARE AMERICANS THESE DAYS?
By Mansor Puteh



America does not know what they have been trying to do; which is not to protect their national interests although their leaders often like to tell everybody this is what they want to do.

This is their claim each time they embark on any military or political aggression on any country or introduced a new bill of congress.

THE LEFT AND RIGHT OF MALAYSIAN PSEUDO-POLITICS:

THE FACTORS AND REASONS THAT FORCED SOME MALAYSIANS TO GO TO, ALBEIT RELUCTANTLY, THE LEFT, TAKING WITH THEM THEIR ‘BLIND SUPPORTERS’ WHO HAVE NO MINDS OF THEIR OWN…AND THOSE MALAYSIANS WHO PRETEND TO BE IN THE 1960s AMERICA OF THEIR MINDS.
By Mansor Puteh



I don’t think they are the Hardcore Leftists. They are mostly the Confused Hardcore Leftists, those who cannot be the Confused Hardcore Rightists like the many who are the Right, but who can never do anything right.

I don’t think Malaysians who at the Left like to be where are; they have been pushed to this corner which they find to be tough to stay on without being put in a spot.

MALAYSIAN DIASPORA FILMS AND MAY BE JUST A BIT OF ‘LAT’ IS NEEDED TO RESHAPE THE DEVELOPMENT OF THE NEW MALAYSIAN CINEMA

…AND ALSO UNDO THE STEREOTYPES CREATED BY THE OLD MALAYAN CINEMA.
By Mansor Puteh


Most film directors in Malaysia seem to have got it wrong.

They tried their level best using whatever ingenuity to come up with films which they thought would be what the general population wanted with the littlest or nonexistent formal education and some experience, copying from films they had seen earlier and coming up with their own in almost similar style that show their lack for concern for originality and creativity.

Their guesses were all wrong.

IS SINGAPORE AN ILLEGITIMATE STATE CREATED BY THE BRITISH FROM LAND STOLEN FROM THE MELAYU AND JOHOR – FROM A MELAYU-MUSLIM SULTANATE TO A CHINESE REPUBLIC?


…AND THE WATER AGREEMENT WHICH TRADED IN THE OLD BRITISH MALAYA CURRENCY WHICH IS NOW DEFUNCT AND SOME UNUSUAL LIES AND SECRET AMERICAN PLOT TO TOPPLE THE SINGAPORE GOVERNMENT? – PART III.
By Mansor Puteh


Ancient Chinese proverb: When you drink water, do not forget its source!

Just how many Singaporeans today are aware where the water they drink and use for their everyday survival comes from?

IS SINGAPORE AN ILLEGITIMATE STATE CREATED BY THE BRITISH FROM LAND STOLEN FROM THE MELAYU AND JOHOR – FROM A MELAYU-MUSLIM SULTANATE TO A CHINESE REPUBLIC?

 …AND THE GREAT FAMINE CAUSED THE CHINESE TO FLEE FROM SOUTH CHINA TO GO TO NANYANG OR NUSANTARA MELAYU AND SAVED BY THE KIND-HEARTED NATIVES.  – PART II.
By Mansor Puteh


Unfortunately, about one and a half years later, Sultan Hussain Shah died. And he was buried at the Masjid Trengkerah in Melaka where his modest mausoleum is still well-looked after.

Even his descendants may not be aware of him being buried at the masjid in Melaka as I have not heard of any of them visiting it or talking about.

IS SINGAPORE AN ILLEGITIMATE STATE CREATED BY THE BRITISH FROM LAND STOLEN FROM THE MELAYU AND JOHOR – FROM A MELAYU-MUSLIM SULTANATE TO A CHINESE REPUBLIC? – PART I.

By Mansor Puteh


(Note: Astro Awani provided the live transmission on the funeral service of Lee Kuan Yew starting from the time the casket bearing his remains is being taken from the Singapore Parliament House to the auditorium at the National University of Singapore and later to the Mandai Crematorium from 12.30 p.m. to 5.00 p.m. on 29 March, 2015.

His son was invited to give the first eulogy to his father followed by Singapore President Tony Tan and the other former members of the Kuan Yew cabinet, with three persons speaking in Mandarin, Melayu and then Tamil.

‘THE INTERVIEW’ CREATED BY ROGUE PRODUCERS OF HOLLYWOOD WHO SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN HAILED.

…THEY ARE THE ‘CHARLIE HEBDO’ OR ‘THE NUTS’ OF THE FILM INDUSTRY IN AMERICA.          
By Mansor Puteh



‘The Interview’ was not shown in the cinemas in Malaysia and it will never happen.

In fact it was also not shown in the cinemas in many other countries; and only those in America and the west showed it.

The producers of this film must be put in the same league as the cartoonists at the Charlie Hebdo satirical magazine of Paris.

DAP STATE ASSEMBLYMAN FOR BALAKONG CAUGHT GAMBLING AND HE WAS GIVEN A THREE-MONTH SUSPENSION BY HIS PARTY.

…ANWAR IBRAHIM WAS SENTENCED TO FIVE YEARS JAIL FOR SODOMY, BUT DAP DIDN’T CARE ABOUT IT AND HOW THE DAP AND PAS ARE TWO PARTIES WITH CONFLICTING INTERESTS AND GOALS WITH ONE TRYING TO ESTABLISH A SECULAR STATE WHILE THE OTHER AN ISLAMIC ONE.  
By Mansor Puteh


I can say I know Balakong quiet well; I live nearby this area. It is not quiet and also not well. By right it does not need anyone to represent it in parliament or the state assembly. There is anarchy here in more ways than one.

But the laws of the land say they have to include this area for political parties to put their men to get the votes to represent them in parliament and the state assembly.

MELAYU RAYA COULD HAVE CAUSED SINGAPORE NOT TO EXIST AS WHAT IT IS TODAY.

…CHANCES ARE LEE KUAN YEW WOULD ONLY BE A STATE MINISTER OF SINGAPORE WITH SINGAPORE HAVING A GOVERNOR, AND A MELAYU ONE AT THAT LIKE LIM GUAN ENG OF PULAU PINANG.   
By Mansor Puteh


If not for his Baba background, Lee Kuan Yew would not be what he had been, being able to go deeper into the psyche of the Melayu in Singapore and Tanah Melayu or Malaya then, and being able to speak fluent Melayu which also gave him a good advantage over the other Chinese leaders.

If he had been just like the other Chinese, chances are he might not be able to speak in Melayu to be able to mix with them a lot more and thus became just like the other Chinese leaders in Singapore who were not Baba or Straits-born Chinese.

‘TREE OF SORROW’ BY MALIM GHOZALI PK

… A PROMISING NOVEL IN ENGLISH BY A MELAYU AUTHOR WHICH HAS SUCH A GOOD AND INTERESTING PREMISE BUT WEAK PLOT AND CHARACTERS.
By Mansor Puteh


This novel can be rewritten to make it more interesting by putting it in the context of the overall history of the country, Malaysia today or Tanah Melayu then when it came under British colonial rule that not many today would know or are aware of.

I would also like to see how some of the British officers who had to do what they had to do despite their personal contempt of the orders they had to execute, and relating how they had to come here from having assigned a foreign duty by the Colonial Office in London.

RAJA HUSSAIN SHAH, RAFFLES, FARQUHAR AND HOW SINGAPORE WAS A LAND STOLEN FROM THE MELAYU AND JOHOR

…WHICH WAS ORIGINALLY MEANT TO BE A MERE TRADING POST AND NOT A SOVEREIGN STATE.
By Mansor Puteh



Singapore is a land that was stolen by the British and given to the Chinese after they brought in enough of the coolies to overwhelm the Melayu who up to the 1800s were in the majority.

The Melayu could still be in the majority if the British had not brought in the Chinese and also Indians from their respective countries, but more Melayu from the neighboring islands and Indonesia.

LEE KUAN YEW AND THE STRANGE STORY OF AN ISLAND

…HE CAN NEVER BE APPRECIATED BY SUCH A SMALL GROUP OF SINGAPOREANS AND FORMER SINGAPOREANS FOR HAVING DONE SO MUCH FOR SINGAPORE.
By Mansor Puteh


It is described as a small red dot in the sea of green, whatever that means… It is definitely not the flag of Bangladesh.

It is Singapore being surrounded by Melayu and Muslim countries of Malaysia, Indonesia and Brunei.

CHARLIE HEBDO SACRIFICED THE DEATH OF SOME OF THEIR CARTOONISTS AND STAFF TO PROVE A POINT THAT THEY BELIEVE IN THE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION

– BY THEIR OWN WEIRD DEFINITION WHICH IN THE PROCESS ALSO HELPED TO DESTROY WHAT FRANCE STOOD FOR. IT IS DEFINITELY A STUPID WAY TO PROVE A POINT, AND DEADLY TOO.  
By Mansor Puteh


Those smart and confused people at Charlie Hebdo should have known better. The French and their president, too should have known better, not to be misled by what they think is right, which could create unintended consequences.

Maybe the issue or controversy surrounding Charlie Hebdo had died, but it is also good to bring it to life for just a bit or while more, to nail an interesting point that had not been raised when the issue was hot.

HOW COME THERE IS NO BLACK COUPLE ANYWHERE IN THE WRODL WHO HAS ADOPTED A WHITE CHILD

, EVER, ESPECIALLY EVEN IN AMERICA OR SOUTH AFRICA WHICH HAVE WHITE AND BLACK MAJORITY, RESPECTIVELY?
By Mansor Puteh


This is really not much of an issue. But did anyone anywhere in the world miss discussing or raising the matter? Isn’t it also important, as it can bring out a lot if that has happened, because it would reflect a lot on many things and issues surrounding it.

And why must someone from Malaysia raise it?

ARE THEY THE CHINESE AND INDIAN CHAUVINISTS IN MALAYSIA

– HE WHO SPEAK IN THEIR OWN LANGUAGE WITH THEIR OWN PEOPLE BUT WHO FORCE THE MELAYU TO SPEAK IN ENGLISH INSTEAD OF MELAYU EVEN WHEN THEY ARE WORKING IN GOVERNMENT DEPARTMENTS AND AGENCIES.
By Mansor Puteh



They are Chinese and Indian chauvinists alright, they who claim to be Malaysians through and through but who do not speak in the national language even with the Melayu.

Yet, they speak in Chinese which is not a language, but a nationality – with the languages of the Chinese being Mandarin, Cantonese, Hokkien and so on; and Indian is also not a language but a nationality of India – whose languages are Hindi, Tamil, Malayam, etc, etc.

Mindgames by Yang-May Ooi, is set in Malaysia. But I am here in Malaysia and have been in most of my life.

But I can’t figure out which parts of Malaysia is the author referring to. She maybe Malaysian (I’m not sure of this) but a Chinese and residing in England.

WHITE HOUSE SECURITY SUMMIT: WHO ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM AND WHO ARE PART OF THE SOLUTION?

By Mansor Puteh


The White House Security Summit aimed to subjugate the Arabs more and not to empower them.

And inviting those to attend it in February, 2015, who look like they were part of the problem and not of the solution to the Arab matter; with some who can be charged for hijacking Islam and not using the religion to promote and empower the Arabs especially the young ones to better themselves…

But are America and the west blameless in this?

THREE BRITISH-MUSLIM SCHOOLGIRLS AND JIHADI JOHN ALL DOING NOTHING MORE THAN TO PUT INTO PRACTICE THE TRUE MEANINGS OF THE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND OF ASSEMBLY AND OF SPEECH

THAT EVERYBODY IN FRANCE ARE TALKING ABOUT. THE CHARLIE HEBDO MAGAZINE IS DEAD, R.I.P.!...AND HOW THE WAR THEATER HAD MOVED FROM THE MIDDLE TO EUROPE FOR THE ZIONISTS.
By Mansor Puteh
                                                 


‘I totally disagree with you and what you do, but I will defend and support you…’ Who said that, and who liked to say that?

And who will say this concerning the three British-Muslim schoolgirls and Jihadi John?

They liked to say that on the issue concerning Charlie Hebdo, but not in this particular one. Why?

Can one expect to see a gathering of peaceful people who voice their support for such freedoms in the streets of Paris and London soon?

‘THE JOURNEY’ BACK TO CHINA OF THE CHINESE IN MALAYSIA WHO REFUSE AND CANNOT ACCEPT ASSIMILATION

AND WHO IS FEELING HOW THEIR SOCIETY IS BEING SURROUNDED BY THE VERY PERSONS THEY WANTED TO OVERWHELM. IT SHOULD BE SET IN SINGAPORE OR ‘PENANG’.
By Mansor Puteh


Have the Chinese filmmakers in Malaysia found a niche in the international film festival circuit by coming up with more and more films dealing with their anguish and anxieties living in a country outside of China and facing whatever difficulties and social and cultural disconnection with their host country?

This is an interesting theme.

But can they pull by coming up with something magnificent?

WHY ARE AMERICA, EUROPE, AUSTRALIA AND THE UNITED KINGDOM ‘UNDER ATTACK’ BY ARAB OR MUSLIM AND LONE WOLVES ‘TERRORISTS’?

…AND SOME CARTOONISTS TOO CAN BE DESCRIBED AS TERRORISTS!
By Mansor Puteh



What is happening in Europe, the west and America is reminiscent of what happened in America in the 1960s when the Blacks formed the Black Panther and SLA parallel to the movement led by Dr. Martin Luther King.

The Black Panther and Symbionese Liberation Army (SLA) were a radical and militant Black Power movement which had also gained the support of some American athletes; two of whom wore a black glove when they received their medals in the Olympics.

But they these underground groups did not get the credits due to them all of which were given to one person – Dr. Martin Luther King who now has a day in the American calendar named after him, other than some roads and also a concrete statue in his liking near the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC.

The Black Power movement had to kidnap the daughter of American media magnate, Randolph Hearst, before they were taken seriously.

REPORTERS WITHOUT BORDERS DOES NOT REPRESENT THE REPORTERS OF THE WORLD, BUT THEMSELVES ALONE.

…HOW COULD ANY SANE PERSON AGREE WITH THEIR SLOGAN, ‘FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION DOES NOT HAVE A RELIGION’ AND THE BANNING ON THE WEARING OF THE BURQAS BY SOME MUSLIMS IN FRANCE?   
By Mansor Puteh


Reporters Without Borders (RSF) – Reporters Without Sense! This is what this organization truly is.

They have their own goals to achieve and aims to realize and they may not be what many other reporters especially those in the Arab and Muslim countries, would support.

And they had not bothered to find out just how many reporters in the world who do not support them.

DUMB AND DUMBER POLITICAL, INTELLECTUAL AND RELIGIOUS LEADERS IN THE WEST AND ALSO THE ARAB AND MUSLIM WORLDS

…AND HOW THE WORLD HAS TURNED UPSIDE-DOWN.
By Mansor Puteh



Muslim political and intellectual leaders today are all trying to prove to everybody who are dumb and dumber…so they are willing to do the unconceivable by fighting with each other purely based on the slight provocations from outsiders who agents habitually infiltrate their organizations, governments and countries like they did not better how to counter them, each time it happened.  

The Muslim and Arab World seemed to be more peaceful when there were not too many so-called smart people, when the leaders and wealthy people knew Islam better than they do now.

Islam spread around the world not by the sword but by trading and intermarriage and no Muslim country had invaded another country unlike Catholicism which used the sword and force the people they had colonized and dominated to join their faith.

The people in the Philippines were Muslims before the Spanish came to conquer them. However, they were not able to move south which still has a Muslim majority.  

Many Arabs especially in the old days were living simply in caves without care for their personal well-being because they only cared for the Hereafter.

CHARLIE HEBDO AND THE NEW MARKETING STRATEGY TO PROMOTE FLEDGING PUBLICATIONS.

…GET THEIR COUNTRY AND MOST OF THE WESTERN WORLD TO SUPPORT THEM TO GO FOR THE KILLING AT THE SALES, EVEN IF IT MEANS SACRIFICING SOME OF THEIR OWN STAFF AND A FEW OTHERS – AND FRANCE BANNING THE BURQAS TO RESTRICT FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION.
By Mansor Puteh


Look who’s laughing all the way to the bank…

The three police officers who were gunned down by the attackers at Charlie Hebdo were given a state funeral and given the Legion of Honor.

Yet, the cartoonists who had also died in the incident for which the attack had been launched causing the police officers to be killed, have not been given similar state funerals or Legion of Honor. They deserve to get them more than the police officers, because they were the reasons for the attack to take place, in the first place.

CHARLIE HEBDO OF PARIS AND CHARLIE CHAN OF HOLLYWOOD

…AND THE ONE MILLION IN THE UNITY MARCH IN PARIS (TO NOWHERE), LED BY HOLLANDE AND SOME OTHER EUROPEAN LEADERS…
By Mansor Puteh



This is what is happening in Paris and France in recent times; the French had discovered that their own definition and concept of the Freedom of Speech and Expression to be wanting and it is not perfect.

This is what the whole of France and the world did not see; they refused to see it because their eyes are blinkered; they are too close to the happenings that they had all failed to be intellectual and realistic or real.

All of them are thinking of Charlie Hebdo of Paris and none of them seemed to be aware of Charlie Chan of Hollywood. Both the Charlies are in the same boat, involved in the same issues and controversies.

Charlie Chan is ‘dead’, long live Charlie Hebdo…?

And the National Front of France leader Marien le Pen was not invited to attend the march in Paris so she had to organize one her own elsewhere? Long live, ‘Liberte, Egalite and Fraternite’ (Liberty, Equality and Fraternity)??

Yet, Charlie Hebdo cartoonists did not consider these national slogans or philosophy when they decided to make fun of the Prophet knocking off ‘Equalite and Fraternate’ as they pleased.

ARAB TERROR SUSPECTS AND TERRORISTS AND MILITANTS HAVE STRONG AND DIRECT LINKS TO HOLLYOOD!

…HOLLYWOOD MOMENTS AND TAKING THE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND SPEECH TO THE UTMOST EXTREME – AND ATTACKS ON THE CHARLIE HEBDO OFFICE AND THE KOSHER SUPERMARKET IN PARIS AND THE LINDT CAFÉ IN SYDNEY.
By Mansor Puteh



The French government or police did not like it that one of the newspapers in France on Saturday, 10 January, 2015 had published a photo on the front-page showing a terrorist gunning down to kill an injured policeman who was lying on the sidewalk, who happens to be an Arab, too, like his attacker. 

Here is how the French practice their so-called Freedom of speech and expression by supporting the publishing of some sketches depicting the Prophet yet on the other hand they frowned upon another newspaper from publishing the photo which they thought was insensitive.

This is happening even before the woman, Hayat, who is said to be linked to the hostage crisis in the Kosher Supermarket (Hyper Cacher) is arrested and the dramas of the two attacks on it and Charlie Hebdo are fully digested. 


Even the attackers of the Twin Towers of Lower Manhattan might have got inspiration from watching an earlier Hollywood called ‘Independence Day’ which saw the White House being bombed to smithereens.

CARTOONS AND CARNAGE AND CHAOS:

HOW CARTOONISTS MUST NOT BE ALLOWED TO DEFINE FREEDOM OF EXPRESSION AND SPEECH, THE EFFECTS CAN BE DEADLY, THEY WHO CANNOT BE TRUSTED WITH THEIR PENS AS MUCH AS SOME OTHERS WITH THEIR FIREARMS AND ALSO VETO POWER IN THE UNITED NATIONS.
By Mansor Puteh


A reckless man with a gun can be as harmful as an irresponsible cartoonist with a pen…

Some cartoonists of Charlie Hebdo in Paris found this out and paid for it dearly with their own lives.

They subscribed to the false impression and their own version and definition of Freedom of speech and expression and did not care for the sentiments of the others who they poke fun of and paid the price for it with their lives.

FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND EXPRESSION AND THE FAKERY OF THE FRENCH’, EUROPEANS’ AND AMERICANS’ EXHORTATIONS ON THESE.

…WHY EVEN ON OSCAR NIGHT NO ONE IS ALLOWED TO WEAR SIMPLY, THE FOUR-LETTER WORD IS STILL NOT ALLOWED TO BE BROADCAST OR PUBLISHED IN THE MEDIA!
By Mansor Puteh



I first visited Paris in January, 1981 and the second time in June, 2013. I had fond memories of the city I visited the first time.

Paris has not changed the second time I saw it again recently with the Eiffel Tower still standing proudly and can be seen from all over the city.

The only start difference that I could see is the sight of the many colored people especially Arabs and Muslims from African countries that had been colonized by France earlier, who are now there, especially at the Eiffel Tower and the train station, Gard du Nord which was where I had put up in a hotel at.

HAS THE STAR NEWSPAPER BECOME THE LAUGHING STOCK OF WORLD JOURNALISM?

…CAN THE STAR PRODUCE A DOCUMENTARY ON THE HISTORY OF THEIR NEWSPAPER?
By Mansor Puteh


This is one definition on who may be a nationalist and a chauvinist: A Malaysian nationalist is a person who studies and studied in the national schools; a chauvinist is one who studies and studied in the vernacular schools who grow up depending on the charity of the Melayu for his commercial business while not having any fascination for Malaysian culture and arts, choosing only those from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan and India.

And a Chinese chauvinist newspaper promotes not Malaysian culture but China, Hong Kong and Taiwan culture with the Indian or Tamil chauvinist newspaper promoting India culture and not highlighting the participation of Chinese-Malaysians in the arts and film in Malaysia.

Normally some newspapers like to charge some agencies or individuals for becoming ‘the laughing stock’ of the country. They do that all the time, with the editors and journalists who also sometimes use their readers to say similar things.

But surprisingly, this charge can now be leveled at one newspaper in Malaysia which seems to believe too much in what they say, especially when they want to redefine ‘moderation’ and ‘extremism’ to suit their political agendas, whatever they are without realizing that these two words in the English language not only have negative meanings but also positive ones that they did not care to ask what they are.

How could a reputable English language newspaper not know this? That one can be extremely kind and also moderately evil!

So what’s the point in asking for everybody not to be extremists and to get them to be moderates?

The Star indeed can be charged for being the laughing stock of world journalism.

For a mere newspaper, the Star can be charged for misusing the medium to express the politics of their editors.

Have they gone too far with the word, with their views?

No other newspaper in the world has come anywhere near to them. They are indeed in a class of their own.

Of course the Washington Post had caused President Richard Nixon to be forced to resign over the Watergate scandal. But in this instance, it is the Stargate scandal or controversy that the Star has found it embroiled in.

But alas not many in Malaysian will care about this newspaper which will go on insisting that they are right that they have the right to report and criticize as they please.  

Is the Star taken the Malaysian and their readers and especially their non-readers for granted for too long?

The most disgusting part is how they have the gumption to want to do whatever they are doing to achieve what they have not bothered or dared to say other than being vague about it.

They also have the veracity to insist that they are right. They won’t buckle; they will continue on with their quest to push for the moderation campaign.

The moderate criminals, rapists and liars will welcome that for they have a lot of sentiments to share.

But the people who are extremely kind and generous will not think much about them. They have been made to feel like they had done something wrong for being extremists in the eyes of some people who did not know any better than to charge them for being ‘extremists’.  

So now the criminals will go on robbing and hurting others but they can do that only moderately. And those who are extremely kind and generously will also want to consider to be less so.

Last year’s bonuses for the Star staff will therefore be moderate; and instead of them getting a few months’ bonus, they will get just half a month!

This will make the staff of the newspaper organization extremely happy for being able to do their part to prove that they also practice what their paper is preaching to everybody.

And in the international front, the Zionists will not want to completely destroy Palestinian towns and villages but partially.

This also caused those who are said and reported by this paper to be supporting their cause, without any of them now actually knowing why and what they are supporting.

The strategy used by the Star is not unique; they write and insist on being right until they come to the extent that they began to believe in their own filth, however ridiculous it may be.

No wonder not many Malaysians are giving their support to their cause.

The silent majority does not care with their politics and continue to read what they say just to see how ridiculous it is.

They want everybody to be moderate. Do their editors, sub-editors and journalists want to do what they are trying to preach, i.e. by getting moderate wages, which is a third of what have been getting now, just to show to everybody and mostly their readers and those who support their cause that they mean what they say?

And will the Star dare to get someone to produce a documentary on its history and also a book on how this newspaper first appeared and how it expanded to become a national newspaper, and if they had supported the cause of Independence or Merdeka of the country?

But can the Star prove to everybody that they are capable of doing what they are doing with their moderation and extremism campaign?

Do they have the history to back that?

Do they dare to get an independent agency to help them come up with a special documentary to document how their newspaper started and how it expanded and what they have been doing all these years to prove that they have been moderates and had also shun extremism?

They have been promoting the English Premier League (EPL) to the extreme, everyday, giving them many pages in the sports section.

They continue to do that even though they have not been given any due recognition by the EPL or even one EPL football team in England.

England has also not offered any of their editors due recognition much less a knighthood for helping to promote the EPL.

The Star newspaper therefore can be charged for being the laughing stock of world of journalism because they are serving the cause of the other countries in this way.

And no newspaper in the world has said they also endorse what this newspaper is doing, much less to want to report on it and to also recommend to the selection committee of the Pulitzer’s Prize to give due recognition to them.

No newspaper in England is devoting even a single column on Malaysian football; even the Wimbledon badminton finals are not covered extensively by any newspaper in England, the reason being no English player has made it to the finals in ages.
