PKR AND PAKATAN DO NOT NEED MANY MEMBERS; THEY CAN GET VOTES FROM THOSE WHO DO NOT VOTE BARISAN LIKE WHAT HAPPENED IN THE 2008 GENERAL ELECTION.

…BUT PKR AND PAKATAN’S IGNORANCE OF THIS FACTOR HAS CAUSED THEM TO LOSE THAT SUPPORT. THEY WILL BE TROUNCED IN THE NEXT GENERAL ELECTION.
By Mansor Puteh



BARISAN LEADERS AND STRATEGISTS DO NOT KNOW WHAT HAD HIT THEM IN THE 2008 GENERAL ELECTION AND WHAT THEIR OPPONENTS COULD USE TO GARNER MORE SUPPORT FROM THOSE WHO WERE ONCE HARDCORE BARISAN SUPPORTERS TO MOVE TO THE OTHER SIDE.

THEY BLAMED OTHER THINGS AND FACTORS.

THE TRUTH IS THAT THEY HAD FAILED TO CONTAIN DISSENTION WITHIN THE BARISAN SUPPORTERS WHO HAD IN MANY WAYS – SUBTLE AND CRUDE WAYS – THAT SOME OF THEIR OLD GOATS HAD HAD ENOUGH OF THEIR ATTENTION, SO THEY’D BETTER GET RID OF THEM.

And Pakatan does not seem to know how to continue on with the swing to get better benefits in the future.

They had remained aloof to the sudden swing of voters’ sentiments to favor them. They did not realize that they had not done much to attract the attention of the others who were still not sure if they wanted to be on this side of the opposition.

PKR and Pakatan leaders have failed to contain them and make them feel at home on the other side of the fence.

The problem with these leaders is that they are too self-centered. They are no different compared to their Barisan counterparts from which some of the more senior leaders had come from.

They have brought the same culture and practice to PKR and Pakatan, so this did not please the new opposition supporters, especially when some of those in DAP had become too abrasive to cause a lot of consternation amongst the Melayu and Muslim supporters, who are now feeling that the DAP is a Chinese chauvinist party who puts on a false face to distract the Melayu to support them.

They have failed. Many Melayu had left DAP, PKR and Pakatan.

This explains why the PKR elections attracted a mere ten percent of the voters from amongst its members.

But they should not care, since voter count for party election is not important; voter counts for the general and by-elections are.

And this is where Pakatan has an upper hand that they can count on those who dislike Barisan like they did in 2008.

But the truth is, Pakatan cannot depend on those who thought they had been disenfranchised by Barisan like what they felt in 2008 to hold on to the same sentiments in the next general election.

They had started to show that in the last two by-elections in Kelantan and Sabah where Barisan won handsomely.

Some of them could still win in their party elections at the divisional level as well as the national levels.

They were feted by their in-party supporters.

But what they didn’t realize is how those who vote for them in the general election or even by-election do not care for their in-party support; they have other views on them.

So it was not a big surprise how many of their veteran and old goats were trounced.

Despite that they could still walk with their heads high.

The problem with these people is that they had been around for too long to realize that their skin had grown too chick. They feel no guilt. They are shameless and claim to have the support of their party members.

They do.

But what they cannot be certain is that the voters out there who are not their party supporters or members who are also going to vote in the elections.

And as it had happened, those who were party members had also not voted for Barisan in the last general election.

This caused them to lose badly.

Yet, the same goats were still intent on holding onto their posts which they had held for so long.

They had not learnt much. They think they are too important to their party. They are too self-important.

Whereas, Pakatan placed in new faces, the greenhorns whom the voters thought they could control and dominate, who could be eternally grateful to them, the voters for turning them in as members of the state assemblies and of parliament.

This is one of the major factors why they won. And it was also one of the major factors many of the new faces in Barisan had also won.

So the truth is that the veterans and old goats in Barisan were the problem. They were the main reason why Barisan was trounced in the election where they lost more states to Pakatan.

There is an advantage in being the opposition party in Malaysia in that it does not need to get many members who support their cause.

In fact, they did not have to campaign which is costly. All they needed to do was to sow hatred of Barisan and create animosity amongst its members.

They had created disillusionment amongst many of them who started to see Barisan as old hat; a coalition of old parties with old men who could not walk even if they were given walking sticks or who could not go anywhere even if they were given wheelchairs to push themselves to.

In other words, Barisan and some of their old leaders have overstayed their time. They had become a nuisance to the voters. They had to be thrown out of the political scene.

And this time the voters managed to do.

What happened after the 2008 election was dramatic.

They can depend on those who are disillusioned with Barisan to get votes from them as can be seen in the results of the 2008 general election.

Those who had turned in Pakatan in the election did not know that they had voted for them; they only thought they had not voted Barisan.

This is the problem with Barisan; they lose votes because the voters had to choose between them and Pakatan.

As a result, Pakatan did not have to campaign in the 2008 election and still managed to win many seats.

So can they do to sustain this?

And what can Barisan do to stave off this notion in the thinking of the voters, so that they do not give their votes to Pakatan even if they do not like Barisan?

It’s not some thing those in Barisan had ever thought of. Their strategists are too dumb to realize this, while their counterparts in Pakatan are too na├»ve to realize it too; how they had managed to get votes not because the voters liked them, but because they did not like Barisan.

I did not vote. The reason because I did not like the candidates from Barisan and Pakatan who did not turn up to canvass for votes. None of them got any vote from me because I refrained from voting.

And I will do so in the future unless if Barisan and Pakatan shows me their candidates whom I can respect and trust and who has proper background and the right academic qualification.

I am not demanding; I am just being realistic. Those who want my vote must be deserving and earn it. They have to be educated and cultured.

Unfortunately, there are not many in Barisan and Pakatan who have been voted can ever meet my high standards. They are too confused with their roles as elected representatives.

They only know that they have been given a boost in their political career, so they are either in parliament or the state assemblies and also the Barisan cabinet and or the Pakatan shadow cabinet.

Some of them have become loud-mouths and chauvinists. They exhibited this trait very quickly upon taking over the state assemblies and some seats in parliament and the administration of some of the state governments.

They had failed many of the voters especially the Melayu and Muslims who had wanted to give them a chance to prove themselves.

Unfortunately, they had failed.

Pakatan will be trounced in the Thirteenth General Election, that’s for sure.

HAS THE MARCH TO THE LEFT IN MALAYSIA BECOME AN UGLY SIGHT WITH THE LEFTISTS NOW FINDING THEMSELVES HAVING TWO LEFT FOOTS WITH ONE IN THEIR MOUTH?

…THEY HAVE THEMSELVES TO BLAME FOR THEIR OWN DEBACLE. PULAU PINANG BECAME PENANG AND THE MELAYU PUSHED BACK…
By Mansor Puteh


THE ANSWER IS: IT HAS.

THERE ARE NOW MANY MALAYSIANS OF ALL RACES, WHO NOW SEEM TO HAVE TWO LEFT FOOTS THESE DAYS.

FEW OF THEM, I’M AFRAID HAD STEPPED THEIR OWN TWO LEFT FOOTS SO THEY ARE NOW MIS-STEPPING ALL THE TIME. SO NOTHING CAN BE RIGHT WITH THEM NOW, YET, THEY STILL INSIST ON BEING SELF-RIGHTEOUS.

But unfortunately, as it has turned out and become very evident, only those who write in Melayu and English are blogging.

There are so few Malaysian bloggers in Tamil or mandarin, never mind Cantonese or Hokkien. The Indian and Chinese dialects have been reduced to become social communication tools. They are not for blogging.

This goes to show how far the vernacular education can take someone in the country. Not very far.

Because in the free world and in the total freedom that they have, they still cannot count on expressing themselves in Tamil or Mandarin.

And as it has also turned out, most of those who go to the blog sites are Melayu, so no wonder blogs and other websites in Melayu get more hits than the English ones.

And they are mostly those who are stuck with local and petty social, cultural, historical and political issues and other controversies, while bloggers who deal with more universal issues do not attract their attention.

But what do they post on the essays that are posted will make you squirm. First, many choose to hide behind pseudonyms and they reflect their poor command of Melayu and English and low common sense. Anger is what they spew.

The bloggers are mostly the self-righteous leftists who have been left without a real cause are now finding themselves having two left foots to march nowhere.

But this doesn’t mean that those who are on the right – the rightists are also normal. No! Many of them now seem to have two right foots.

Yet there is another group of people who have a foot in their mouth.

Sooner or later, the left has to go and the right too can’t stay right forever.

Because the right side and left side of their brain do not seem to be functioning correctly because they have been left to rot.

Only the smart and brilliant must be allowed to take center stage, for the good of the nation and everybody.

The Leftists in Malaysia seem to have over-stepped many; but mostly they have over-stepped their role as Leftists, by giving it a bad name.

Once when being on the Left was trendy, now it is not. And once when being on the Right is fancy, now it is not.

This leaves those who are in the middle – the so-called Fence-Sitters to feel especially relieved at how they have benefited from the two sides, the Left and Rights to know how superior they have been.

Because they can now see who are on both sides. They are many silly ones on either side who have been making a fool of the others all this while, yet they don’t seem to realize this and still want everybody to think that being on the Left is chick. It is not.

Being on the right, too, isn’t. Now being in the middle is.

Many of them have unfortunately found themselves with two Left Foots. They don’t have a right foot. And it is not a medical problem, but a psychological one.

How could a person have two left foots? How can they be right on anything? They will soon be left from their march to the left after a while doing it, so they are now back to where they had started from, after walking left around a circle.

Meanwhile, the Rights in Malaysia have also not made many right moves. Theirs is not a march to anywhere. But they think it is somewhere – somewhere, nowhere. That’s good enough for them, since they can pretend to be going somewhere, yet nowhere.

Many of them are has-beens. They have been in politics for too long, and marching on the right side of the track so much so that they seem to think they are always right, all the time.

For a while they were right. But after so long, they cannot be right anymore.

They have rightly become clowns – political clowns. They do their acts in front of a horde of journalists who ask them trite questions, and who get trite answers that their newspaper editors seem to be happy to reprint like the statements and comments they make are intelligent ones that no one had heard of before.

How right they think they are.

But some of the newspapers are also marching up the wrong street. They try to pretend to be on the Right, but in fact, they are also with the Leftists, who have also marched too long, so much so we can see how tired they are. They are mostly those in the vernacular papers and English language, who seem to have an undeclared relationship with the Left.

It’s this, or it’s because they think it is the role of the newspapers to take their readers to the left, as it can make them look progressive. Staying on the right will mean they are poodles. But can’t they also be poodles for the left, too?

This is what’s wrong with Malaysian journalism that it is being shaped not by better educated people but by mere journalists and their editors.

They should by right be so shaped by the ministry of home affairs or Kementerian dalam negeri (KDN), under whom they are subservient to, who give them the KDN permits allowing them to continue publishing.

But the KDN, too, has been cowed by the journalists who charged them for not practicing freedom of the press, a charge which tantamounts to saying that the press in Malaysia is not free.

It is not free. They are some prices to be paid to get the papers off the press although there are now at least two free papers that are offered to the public in some areas.

But they are so thin, and filled with prejudiced views of the journalists and their editors, who are sadly mostly from the minority communities in the country. So their views often sound quite left-leaning.

MALAYSIA’S FAILED EXPERIMENT WITH THE LEFT HAS LEFT MANY TO WONDER IF IT WAS RIGHT TO TAKE THE ROAD LEFT TO PUTRAJAYA.

…REJECTING OLD GOATS AND TURNING IN NEWHORNS, BAD FOR THE CAUSE OF THE NATION.
By Mansor Puteh



MANY MALAYSIANS WHO HAD TRIED TO DO A BIT OF TESTING AND EXPERIMENTING IN THE LAST 2008 GENERAL ELECTIONS HAVE FOUND OUT ALBEIT A LITTLE TOO LATE THAT EXPERIMENTING WITH THEIR FUTURE AT THE BALLOT BOXES COULD PROVE TO BE SUCH A DAUNTING EXPERIENCE.

IT’S AN EXPERIMENT THAT MANY OF THOSE WHO HAD CROSSED THE WRONG BOX TO PUT SOME ON THE TRACK TO PUTRAJAYA, HAS PROVEN TO BE FUTILE.

THAT THE COUNTRY STILL NEEDS TO BE ON THE RIGHT TRACK OR ELSE IT WOULD BE LEFT BEHIND.

It is too bad too that many of the voters in 2008 had tried to do something different. They did not want to vote for some Barisan candidates whom they thought their parties had allowed to contest again and again.

But in the process, they overdid it and the end result they not only rejected those old goats, but also turned in greenhorns who are no better than the old goats.

I was one of the few who did not exercise my voting rights by refraining. The problem was that the candidates from both Barisan and Pakatan were unknowns in my state and federal areas. So why should I vote any of them.

And true enough the two who had been voted in have not done much in my areas. They have not found it necessary to visit their state and federal constituencies.

They have so far erect banners and buntings to hail themselves as the representatives of the people here. This is all that they could ever think of.

Most likely they did not dare to show their faces in these areas because they are not so well educated. They do not know the places and its people or their problems.

They are only good for their parties.

So many people in my areas like in many other areas had tried to do some experimenting.

Now they are experiencing some discomfort at turning greenhorns who could not speak or write well in Melayu like they do.

And none of them had said anything intelligent or interesting in the parliament or state assemblies.

They are useless lawmakers. They are political greenhorn showmen.

Senior Barisan leaders did not realize that many of those whom they had chosen to recontest for the Nth number of times was not favored by the voters of their own constituencies.

Some of them might have been turned in as heads of their branches at the ‘cawangan’ levels with some having turned in at the national levels.

Yet, they did not realize that in the general elections, it is the voters who decide.

So no wonder even Samy Vellu lost.

It is therefore no point for Soi Lek to be proud that he had been voted in by his MCA party to be its new president. He cannot be sure if he can win in the next general elections.

Pakatan was given the chance to lead the way to Putrajaya, but instead of focusing on this destination, they had to make unnecessary detours to Jalan Duta. If they are not so lucky, some of them could find themselves seconded in Sungai Buloh for a lengthy period of time.

It will be good for those voters who had given them the chance by experimenting with the Left, so now they should be in a better position to judge for themselves if what they had done in 2008 was right.

The outcome of the 2008 general elections was good; it gave a chance for the voters in the country to find out if they could continue to trust Pakatan after what they had shown especially in the states they won and now govern.

But the Pakatan officials did not seize the moment and moved all those who had voted for them so that their position in national politics can be further strengthened.

They had failed to do this simply because those whom they had offered seats in the state assemblies and parliament could not perform. None of the greenhorns are functioning representatives.

The veterans are also not showing the way.

It is not for me to tech Pakatan how to prove their worth; they have to do it themselves.

But it is too late now especially with their party elections where all hells have broken loose which have threatened the very existence of their party.

The occasional demonstrations by some of their supporters and members in front of their party headquarters in Tropicana, Shahalam is a bad indication that things are not going on well.

There were also similar demonstrations outside of their de facto leader’s, Anwar Ibrahim’s house in Sentul.

I find it also stunning how there is a police station beside the PKR headquarters in Tropicana like it is deliberately created there for a purpose.

The Zaid factor can also cause some consternation to PKR as well as Pakatan and it is happening at a time when they did not need someone like him to be so crude as to challenge the party leadership by openly criticizing it and their leaders including Anwar.

So Malaysia’s experiment with the left has left many befuddled. Hopefully, in the next general elections which are due sometime in 2013, things can be put on the right track again.

I expect Pakatan to lose the states they control today except for Kelantan, which can see Pakatan losing more seats to Barisan which will soon announce their new strategy and also new logo to replace the old weight white in color on blue background.

And what happened in the floods in the northern states has also shown how incapable Pakatan is in governing them. They lack the experience to deal with natural calamities or have any new and interesting economic programs for those states and the whole country.

SODOMY TRIALS ARE MOSTLY ABOUT THE ACT OF DEFIANCE, SELF-DENIAL AND THE SNARING OF THE LEGAL PROCESS.

…IT JUST IS AN ATTEMPT TO DELAY JUDGMENT AND PUNISHMENT MOSTLY.
By Mansor Puteh



IN MALAYSIA SODOMY TRIALS ARE FEW AND FAR IN BETWEEN; THE FEW THAT HAD BEEN BROUGHT TO COURT HAVE ALL BROUGHT A CONVICTION WITH THOSE WHO HAD BEEN CONVICTED GOING TO PRISON TO SERVE THEIR SENTENCE UNANNOUNCED.

IT IS NOT EASY TO FRAME ANYONE FOR COMMITTING SODOMY ESPECIALLY IF THE ACTS NORMALLY LEAVE A LONG TRAIL FOR THE PROSECUTORS TO FOLLOW FROM THE TIME THE COUPLE MEETS AND HOW THEY WENT ABOUT THEIR PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP UNTIL SODOMY HAPPENED UNTIL THEIR RELATIONSHIP TURNS SOUR FOR SOME REASONS OR OTHER.

ON THE OTHER HAND, TO FRAME ANYONE FOR COMMITTIING SODOMY BRINGS FORTH A LOT OF CONFICTING EVIDENCE AND WITNESSES.

So there is no way for the person who alleged to have been sodomized to want to do that simply because it involves the whole time and frame possibilities with many incidents and characters related to it with one witness or incident that conflicts with the scenario can render the charge to be inherently defective.

And relating the scenario can become fodder for the media, because of the juicy information that is revealed.

So it is also not easy for anyone to escape conviction, except if the court has a lot of time to listen to all the diatribes and insidious insinuations that the person can cast on the judiciary and also the government.

The only way for a person who has been charged with sodomy therefore is to take the medical route to avoid getting a conviction.

And it is strange how someone who has been charged openly for having committed sodomy can go about doing his daily business as though it is nothing and his family members and close friends can ignore it like it did not matter to them anymore.

He does not feel any shame.

He goes about doing his business and does not look like he is affected by the scandal which lesser men would feel offended and utterly shameful so much so that he could not bear to be in public and look in the eye with his relatives and friends.

This is a great advantage a person who is in the public eye has over someone who is private who safeguards his privacy.

But it still does not mean that the person who faces a sodomy charge can go about feeling unremorseful and not guilty.

Having a bank of legal advisers and other cohorts help in his case as he does not have to feel alone.

Because in the end, it’s the courts and public who will be made fools of while the condemned sodomists try to see what ‘other benefits’ he could get from them.

Earlier sodomy trials had gone on quietly without any drama. But sodomy ii seems to be going around and around.

Why did the prosecution have to deal with medical issues first? They should have taken the matter on the scenario and relationship first to see if there are signs of that and ‘an understanding’ and ‘a relationship’.

The medical aspects can come in next. So even if there are no medical proofs, at the very least there is a relationship. And this is good enough to prove that homosexual relationship had happened between the two parties.

What else is there to prove?

Unfortunately for many, there won’t be any as they languish in prison, if this is the just justice that they had been craving for to prove their innocence they were expecting to get.

It all boils down to this: If a lesser person had been charged for sodomy, his trial would have gone almost unnoticed. Not an inch of news would have been published in the papers or a minute of it reported on national news on television.

And no mattress would have been produced as evidence during the course of the trial which could not be dragged on and on for months and even years. Everything would be over in a matter of weeks if not days.

The person who was charged for committing sodomy or ‘acting against the laws of nature’ would have got natural justice and be sent to prison to continue his incarceration from the public for years until he is forgotten, and until his basic animal instincts had been forgotten.

And the said person had to languish in prison without being able to create any sort of out-of-court drama whatsoever.

Some men had actually been charged for sodomy and duly sentenced. They took it gentlemanly without a fuss since they knew right from the start what they were doing was a crime, for which they did not have to argue with anyone with, unless if they are in another country where it is not such.

The strange part is that these lesser men who had been charged would have gone to the courts with their faces covered, while those who know they are guilty as charged would often go there with their heads held high.

The reasons are obvious, since they are people of substance and some history; so there is no point for them to hide their faces. Their photos are everywhere. And the media have many of them to use including video footages especially.

I know of a story of a man who had been charged for sodomy, who had once been invited to attend a dance performance staged by The Eighties Drama Center which later became known simply as The Drama Center.

The performance was at the then Experimental Theater of Universiti Malaya, and this man was invited as the guest-of-honor, since he knew the producers and directors from the group from their boarding school days, and also because he is now a better known and recognized person in Malaysian politics.

However, a few minutes into the show, this man, who was then not married yet and was still young left the hall. The reason was because he said he did not like to look at the sight of men performing in the play who were wearing leotards, with their crutches protruding.

Was he against seeing such a sight because he was not able to see more of it?

Unfortunately, charges of sodomy have not been heard to have been instituted in the west, especially with consenting male adults because it is not a crime there.

However, if similar acts were to have been committed in Malaysia, they have to go by the laws of the country. It is the law which no one had actually objected to and taken the mater for debate in parliament so that such laws could be considered for repeal.

And where were the lawyers of high profile cases who are said to be concerned about how justice might be tempered with because they claim their clients had been charged wrongly, so they demand their cases be heard?

But why are they only concerned in high profile cases? Because the stakes are high.

Yet, more surprisingly is how there is no one or group which has even tried to circumvent the process by trying to repeal such laws so that sodomy is not a crime anymore between two consenting adults in Malaysia, so the onus of those who charge for having been sodomized must prove that what had happened to them was not by consent.

SODOMY I CREATED PAKATAN RAKYAT; SODOMY II DESTROYS IT.

…TOO BAD THEIR MARCH TO PUTRAJAYA TAKES THEM TO THE HIGH COURTS AND THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION WITH SOME WHO MIGHT FIND A CONVENIENT TRANSIT AT SUNGAI BULOH INSTEAD.
By Mansor Puteh



IF THE PRIME MINISTER WAS SAID TO HAVE USED BAD JUDGMENT FOR DISCHARGING OR SACKING HIS DEPUTY, THEN DID HE ALSO MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE BY APPOINTING HIM TO THE POST IN THE FIRST PLACE?

SO HOW COULD ANWAR BLAME OR COMPLAIN WHEN HIS FORTUNES CHANGED FOR THE WORSE?

ISN’T THERE LIFE BEYOND THE DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER? FEW OF THEM HAD FOUND THAT A DEPUTY PRIME MINISTER DID NOT NECESSARY MEAN THAT IT IS JUST A STEP CLOSER TO BECOMING THE PRIME MINISTER.

All these create unnecessary pitfalls they have to face before they can start to chart their way to realize the personal agendas of their senior and veteran leaders who were mostly representing the views and passions of an earlier era of the country.

The sad fact is that Pakatan is led by the same group of losers. Many are former Barisan members. Others are politicians who have failed to trust their main agenda to the country.

So it is not surprising how the voters do not know what they want to do if their parties and coalition won the general elections so they could seize the government and place themselves at Putrajaya.

But the voters and citizens of Malaysia have managed to get some inkling of what they had wanted to do despite them knowing how their goals could never be attained.

From external factors, they are also now starting to face some internal ones, with the bombshell happening with the revelation by Zulkifli Noordin and the actions by Zaid Ibrahim.

Who else will join in their bandwagon that can cause PKR to be so tamed?

Many will want to ask themselves, if they could not conduct their party general elections properly and well, then how on earth could they conduct well in the administration of the federal government?

As yet, their state governments in Selangor and Kedah are facing problems, other than those faced by their Pulau Pinang government.

Kelantan, too, is not spared.

The recent flooding in Kedah and Perlis has not brought the best from Pakatan. The relief work was taken over by the federal government and Barisan who seem to be soaked in the thrill they are getting from the spills of their nemeses.

The floods have indeed drowned whatever hopes and aspirations Pakatan of retaining the four states and wresting Putrajaya.

They should first concentrate on wresting Zaid and some others back to the fold before they can ever think of wresting Putrajaya while trying to get the court of law to validity Anwar of all charges that have been leveled against him and to shape public opinion so that they do not depend too much on those leftists who seem to enjoy proclaiming them as the successor of the federal government when the last two by-elections have proven otherwise.

Pakatan and their supporters are still grappling with the freedom of speech and of the press and of the other things which they claim to be the champions of. Their own track records do not show they too respect these things as much as they would want everybody to think.

Some of that had been spilled by renegade Pakatan leader, Zulkifli Noordin which was only published in Utusan and not in the other papers. None of what he has said has got any reaction from his former party stalwarts.

What does this mean? Does it mean what he is saying is true, or does it mean that they did not care what he says, since they are nonsensical?

Some other inkling of what Pakatan had wanted to do if they are able to seize Putrajaya has been well documented.

They were exhibited by some of their party leaders when they tried to construct road signs in Mandarin over those that are in Melayu which is the official language of the country.

They failed to do this and this plan was aborted. But they had left an indelible mark in the minds of many of their non-Melayu and Melayu supporters and other senseless voters who had crossed the box to their party symbols in the 2008 general election.

In Perak where they managed to seize the state on a slim margin, yet they tried to behave as though the whole state was behind them.

They redesigned the ‘menteri besar’s’ office and state assembly so they looked like stylized Chinese temples or shrines, bright red in color.

Bringing in some feng shui elements in Pakatan Perak did not serve them, so in no time, they were booted out of the state.

For a while they tried to sit under a tree and later in a hotel, but their drama failed to create anything substantial. They have to sit out through the rest of the term Barisan was given by them, until the next state or general election.

And in Selangor, Pulau Pinang and Kedah, Pakatan is again under intense pressure to deliver.

They have so far failed to do much, other than to take control of the administration of the states and do not seem to be in full control of any of them.

What can they do that Barisan had not done or tried to do before?

This is therefore their greatest challenge. Can they tell everybody they are champions of democracy? Can they claim to have developed human capital in the states they now governed? Can they also say to have rescued projects which had been left to rot by the previous state governments?

Who have the developed to take over the government-link companies or GLCs should they be able to wrest control of the federal government after the next general elections which are expected to be held in 2012 or the following year?

What have they developed in terms of sports, the arts and education?

Pakatan leaders are mere politicians. They are not leaders in their own right. Many cannot speak or write properly to engage better educated persons. They have not expanded their horizons to go beyond petty party squabbles.

They seem to enjoy party squabbling that seems to give them a lot of kick.

And none of them are able to stand out in the international arenas.

So the structure Pakatan has is no different than Barisan’s, where there are leaders and supporters followed by lackeys and other cronies.

It’s true that Barisan has a longer list of those men compared to Pakatan because of how long Barisan has been in the business.

Yet, from their short experience, Pakatan has failed to realize the importance to engage the new generation of Malaysians who are qualified in their respective fields so they could garner more support around them, to push for the Pakatan agenda or agendas which is to develop the country and not just the states they now control which they could lose in the next general elections.

Pakatan has therefore become sore losers. While Barisan has become the sore winners.

MALAYSIA’S USELESS DOCTORAL THESES WHICH DO NOT BENEFIT ANYONE OTHER THAN THEIR AUTHORS.

…AND HOW SOME WHO MIGHT HAVE ACQUIRED STALE KNOWLEDGE FROM HARVARD AND THE OTHER MAJOR AND MINOR UNIVERSITIES.
By Mansor Puteh



HOW MANY OF THE DOCTORAL THESES WHICH MALAYSIAN SCHOLARS HAVE WORKED ON HAVE BEEN PUBLISHED?

ARE THEY NOT PROUD TO HAVE THEM PUBLISHED TO ALLOW THE MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC AND ACADEMIC COMMUNITY TO PERUSE THEM TO SEE IF THEY ARE OF ANY SUBSTANCE?

AND HOW MUCH OF WHAT THEY HAD DISCOVERED IN THE COURSE OF THEIR RESEARCH ON THEIR THESES COULD BE SAID TO HAVE BECOME USEFUL AND WERE IMPLEMENTED AS STATE POLICIES?

Do they know what are doctoral theses for in the first place?

These are interesting questions that have to be asked.

Because the government wants to encourage Malaysians to work on their doctorates, but what they have not said is why should they all want to do that if all that they can ever do is to write a lengthy essay on anything that does not bring any benefit to the respective industries and society?

What’s the point of getting many Malaysians with doctorates, when they can never be trusted with anything?

What’s the point too for Malaysians to go to some of the prestigious universities abroad when they can just go to anyone if the only reason for them to pursue their degrees or doctorates is to get them but without using what they had spent a lot of time to research on?

They can just add the ‘Dr.’ prefix before their name and get everybody to refer to them as Doctors. There are also some who call themselves Doctors in the first person instead of using their own names.

These people will feel naked and even stupid if they do not have such a prefix before their names or if they are not called Doctors by the others.

This is a Forties mentality. It is also a Third World mentality.

It is therefore very embarrassing that we can have such people who like to be called Doctors or Professors when they hardly behave like academicians or scholars and who have not been known to have said or written anything original, interesting and intelligent at all.

A country can still be said to be less developed even if every other person has a doctorate. Because it is not a way for any country to be gauged on its development. It is seen from other perspectives.

It is also therefore strange that the government does not require its senior officials to have doctorates. Many of them do not even have a master’s degree despite them being in the government for so long.

In fact, most of those who are in politics and are elected members of parliament and the state assemblies do not have impressive academic backgrounds.

Most of those who are in the cabinet are also of the same stripe.

Maybe it’s because they knew they could not excel in education that they forced themselves to enter politics where the requirements are not as stringent as for someone who wishes to teach at the university.

In the end, it’s the universities that have the best qualified persons in the country whereas in politics we have some of the least impressive ones.

And it is also ironic how some of those who are in the cabinet and politics who are trying to get some others to study hard and get their doctorates, when they have not taken any trouble to further their education beyond the first degree that they have from a local university.

There are so few doctoral theses which have been published, and fewer still, or none of what their authors had discovered in their research has been known to have become state policies.

So in the end many of the doctorate holders in Malaysia including those who had studied at some of the prestigious Ivy League and Oxbrige universities had acquired stale knowledge from them.

They have not said or written anything new. They have only rewritten and repeated what had been researched by earlier scholars. They are no more arm-chair experts.

The many Malaysians who have their doctorates were only working on their theses purely for the purpose of allowing them to get better employment with a better pay.

None has gone to become renowned in their own field of specialization.

Worse, there are even some whose theses have been denounced by themselves. They have the cheek to say what they had done was purely as an ‘academic exercise’.

How could this be so? One works on a doctoral thesis as a personal conviction and not just to get a doctorate degree. This one can do at an earlier time when one is not sure of understanding anything.

It is too bad that many Malaysians had gone abroad to study at some of the most prestigious universities in America and elsewhere but who did not bring any real benefit to the country that might have sponsored their studies over the few years at huge expense.

Of course, they are now able to stand up and be counted. But they are not benefiting the country in ways that no one could imagine.

No wonder the economy of the country could not expand and grow at a faster space, to include and capitalize whatever potentials Malaysians have in whatever fields of endeavor they are interested in.

The economy of the country is still centered on the major interests of the economists and the politicians and not because the country has talents that can be exploited for the good of the country.

That the economists in Malaysia are dull is a fact. They are also narrow-minded. They do not know what moves the economy of the most developed countries in the world and how they use economic planning and development to create social, cultural and political stability.

They only know how to think that by improving the quality of life and the personal incomes of the people, they will be happy and contented.

HEY, PROF, DOC…YOU HAVE THE FORTIES MENTALITY!

…WAKE UP AND BE RECOGNIZED FOR WHAT YOU ARE DOING NOW THAN WHAT PAPERS YOU HAVE GOT ON THE WALLS OF YOUR OFFICES.
By Mansor Puteh



IN THE FORTIES AND ITS WEREABOUTS, MALAYSIANS AND MOSTLY THE MELAYU LIKED TO BE CALLED FOR THE JOBS THEY WERE HOLDING AT THAT TIME.

AND BEING ABLE TO WORK AS CLERKS AND SCHOOL TEACHERS BROUGHT ALONG SOME BENEFITS.

THOSE WHO WERE CLERKS AND TEACHERS OR EVEN MANDORE AND THE LIKE WERE REFERRED TO AS SUCH, LIKE THEY ARE TITLES THAT THEY COULD CARRY WITH THEM EVERYWHERE.

And they were right. Everybody treated them well with a lot of respect.

Even actresses were called Seniwati. But not these days.

In those days, the British were the ones who were holding such posts, but later some locals and especially the educated Melayu men and some other women were given the tasks.

So no wonder they held the post in high stead and wanted to be described as such.

But that was the Forties, Fifties and right up to the Sixties and into the Seventies right to the present time…

In fact, the problem is worse now than it was before, when there are many universities in the country and abroad which produces scores of hundreds of graduates with professional and academic specialization. So all of them have titles before their names.

The problem as many and especially I see it has not changed.

So instead of wanting to be described as teachers, clerks, mandores and the like, they are now calling themselves from the posts they are holding.

So we have Professor or Prof, Doctor or Doc, and so on.

Even academic posts are classified or reclassified as titles. And no wonder Emeritus Professors are put in front of the names of those who are given such posts.

Worse, even Adjunct Professors and Associate Professors are also using the post description as titles that they can affix to their names, and carry from one university to the other and not enough with that they also take them to the departments where they serve later.

Some die with them attached to their names.

How shameful that there are some Malaysians who do not know what to do with their post descriptions. They only know how to use them. But they hardly use them for professional use.

And not forgetting even the Engineers and Architects are insisting that they be described or referred by their own profession. So they are Engineer or Ir, or Architect or Ar So and so…

In developed countries, one does not even use their Doctor title even if he is a medical doctor. Here in Malaysia even animal and whatever doctors are using their titles, especially those who have doctorates, including and especially those who had got them from the internet universities.

Yet, they do not seem to be able to hold on to them to speak intelligently on whatever that they thought they had studied and researched for which they managed to get their doctorates from.

And not wanting to lose, even former military officers also use their post descriptions, so now we have Retired Sergeant, Retired Captain and the like.

We have yet to see Retired Crooks, Retired Corrupt Persons and the like. That’s because these are life-long jobs or calling.

When can Malaysia see people who used to be professors, sergeants and so on do away with their job descriptions and be called by their own names so we know who they are and not what they were?

That won’t be easy to do. It will take a long time before this can happen before Malaysia can be at par with the other developed countries whose qualified persons do not care for titles and their job descriptions but on what they do and contribute to their countries now.

It is sickening how the Profs, Docs, Retired this and Retired that who would flash their retired posts in their name cards and even admitting that they are now part of their name.

What’s your name?

Retired General, Professor, Doctor So and So…

Is that a name or what? It cannot be a name. A name is just what’s written in your MyKad, which is plain and simple. It’s either Ali bin Abu or Wong Tak Tau and so on.

Professional and other honorific titles are only good at special places and not everywhere.

When will it all end?

When some Malaysians start to revolt at such a revolting behavior of those Malaysians who like to flaunt their titles and other attributes and professional experience with some even referring themselves in those titles in the first person.

‘This is how Doctor thinks,’ as some of them would say, when as ‘What does Doctor think?’

He does not have a name anymore; he has been reduced to his title or titles.

In America former presidents are allowed to be referred to as such even after they are kicked out of office or retire gracefully. They are okay since the number of them who had been forced out of The White House is small.

And most of them are still recognizable persons and anywhere they are they are recognized and respected. So in the end the still do not need to be referred to as President So and So. They can stand on their own, post-White House.

Unfortunately, this is not the case with the other lesser mortals who have to use their titles or else no one would know who they are. They do not know what they had done in the past, so they cannot be remembered for having done anything exceptional.

But I don’t remember even in the Forties, Americans or the British were using their professional, academic and honorific titles affixed to their names. They liked to be called by their own names.

So where did this fascination for titles come from in Malaysia?

One rough guess could be with the fascination many Malaysians have on those titles that were given to important characters in the early history of the country. The effect is still felt today.

In other words, Malaysia and many Malaysians are still stuck in the Forties mentality.

WHY MUST DISCORDANT VOICES AND RESTLESS THOUGHTS BE GIVEN THE UNDUE ATTENTION THAT THEY DO NOT DESERVE?

…ISN’T THE DEMOCRATIC PROCESS ENOUGH TO GET THE COUNTRY GOING THAT PERHAPS SHOULD BE REPLACED BY ANARCHY INSTEAD?
By Mansor Puteh



WHERE IN THE WORLD WHERE ANARCHY HAS SERVED THE PEOPLE AND COUNTRY?

AND JUST HOW LONG CAN THE POLITICAL BLOGGERS SUSTAIN INTERESTS IN THE DICHTOMY?

AND HOW LONG CAN THEIR FOLLOWERS ACCEPT THEM FOR WHAT THEY THINK THEY ARE, BEFORE THEY START TO WISEN UP TO REALIZE THEIR OWN FOLLY ABOUT BEING TAKEN FOR A RIDE TOO LONG?

Unfortunately, these are the questions many of the followers of the bloggers and commentators who hide behind pseudonyms have to ask themselves.

Many have already gone bored with the incessant bickering on issues which are not so important to many, buy can distract just a few.

Discordant voice are getting louder and louder in Malaysia, with some Malaysians who are still in awe of the power they now have with their mouse, keyboard and websites or blogs sounding more discordant and out of tune the more they write and the more they believe in what they say. They have indeed become too self-serving and tooooo-self-righteous to be wrong. No one is right. They are right; no one is right; they are all wrong.

And thanks to the internet and blogging, those who once were voiceless are not loud-mouths. Many, who did not care for the issues, now care to issue notices to everybody to say he is the real unrecognized authority in the country.

But alas, those who hide behind pseudonyms are not real people; they could be robots. Worse, if they cannot be physically around to defend their words can be said to be afraid of his own words, for they don’t go by their own words and anybody’s books. They have their own way of doing things and they don’t care for fair-play. They only have platitudes to get them going.

Sometimes they exhibit histrionics and hysterics and lots of them. But alas, too, they blast anyone they please.

In the end, the country cannot be dictated by the few jottings of such persons and those who post comments on their pieces, since we have an established system that keeps the country and society in place.

They have their own ideas on how to go about doing things, but they cannot insist that they are right.

And America, or the west, too, which cares for human rights as much as most Malaysians, must accept that the political process is over after the general elections so those who lost in them should wait out to the next opportunity for them to come out again with new strategies to wrest control of the government and hence, country.

They cannot do it after the general elections, just as those in the developed countries who stay away from the limelight and not post comments or criticism on the government of the day, so if they do not perform, it is better for their opposition to highlight what they are in the next general elections campaign.

This is how they should do it, and not to criticize and campaign everyday.

The truth is that they idle; they know they will wilt if they do not cry foul of anything. They know also that the crowds of supporters who trail them will dissipate once they show that they had waned.

So they have to insist that they are still relevant so they cry foul of anything.

If there are no scandals or controversies, they can create some, to keep themselves going.

The truth also is that the Malaysian public, especially the Melayu are idle; they do not have entertainment outlets to distract them. They know they cannot release their tension and gripe doing other things. So they end up taking close interest in the post-elections debates. These seem to thrill them.

But most of all, the democratic process is also wrong. They know that there is another process, post-general elections that stretch to prior to the next general elections to be the real space to express their own version of democracy.

Where in the world where such an opportunity is given to some of the citizens of the country, so they can continue to campaign and go on a rampage, with crowds of people who are held in trance of not knowing what the speakers are saying to be a repeat of what they had said in their campaigns during the last general elections?

Only in Malaysia where political campaigning is still done even after the general elections are held and votes counted and tabulated. Those who win seats in parliament and the state assemblies are busy with work. Or are they?

No wonder parliament is half-empty for most of the time. And the debates are atrociously of poor quality and substance.

Most of the members are part-timers; they have other jobs and businesses to look after, so them becoming members of parliament and the state assemblies ends up a part-time job or worse, a hobby for them.

And no wonder too, many of the politicians are busier with their work in their legal firms where they often bring their pending court cases to parliament.

They have not been known to look after the welfare of their constituencies so trains still remain clogged and roads untarred or filled with potholes. Do they care for their constituencies?

They seem to care for their legal careers.

And most of the lawyers-cum-members of parliament have the same issues to deal with. And for the many decades they are in politics and the parliament they have been known to care only for the same social, cultural and religious issues.

Mostly they care for the sensitive ones that attract the most public and media attention.

They don’t seem to be able to live if they are not embroiled in any political dispute; they enjoy being hurt and hurting the others, if they can.

Is this what Malaysian politics have come to, even after more than half a century since Merdeka or Independence, the level of political discourses in the country is still at a very low level.

The same issues are being debated, like there are no others that they can bring to parliament or to the media and public attention.

How many of their counterparts in Singapura and the other countries, especially in America who are like them, who are able to take issues of some public concern and turn them into a media circus?

In the end the members of parliament are not so; they are mostly like those loud-mouths who spout the same pre-Merdeka slogans. They are therefore, more than half a century too late in their thinking.

And this has also affected those who blog, too, who seem to think they can be the judge and executioner all at the same time. They despise authority and chide the uniformed organizations and also the judiciary. They know better than anyone.

But alas, what the do not know and will continue to refuse to know is that these are established organizations and agencies with formal and official authorities under the constitution that allows them to do what they are supposed to do.

Whereas the bloggers can only charge that to be inconsequential, that they know everything better.

But alas, what they know is just to ask, ‘Why is that so?’ and they can get a new article on within minutes however scandalous and ridiculous it may be. They don’t care as long as they can ask so they must insist that they are right.

What they do not know is that they can only ask but they have to accept the fact that the answers to their queries may not be what they expect.

Let’s change the situation and try and see if the bloggers and the other loud-mouths take over the administration of the country; can we see them doing things better?

THE 100-STOREY TOWER AND THE TALL STORIES OF THE CYNICS, SKEPTICS AND CRITICS WHO SPIN THE YARN TOO LONG.

…WHEN THE MENARA WARISAN MERDEKA STARTS TO RISE, THEIR TALL STORIES WILL COLLAPSE ONE BY ONE WITH THE YARN THEY HAD SPINNED STRANGLING AROUND THEIR NECKS.
By Mansor Puteh



MALAYSIA NEEDS MORE TOWERING MEN AND WOMEN AND ALSO STRUCTURES AND PROGRESSIVE MELAYU INVESTORS WITH VISION AND INGENUITY

WHAT WE NEED ARE DEFINITELY LESS CYNICS, SKEPTCS AND CRITICS WHO HAVE TALL STORIES AND THE FEAR OF HEIGHTS.

DO THEY CRITICIZE THE CONSTRUCTION OF THE TOWER AND COMMERCIAL CENTER BECAUSE THE MELAYU ARE INITIATING THEM?

I hope it is not true. But chances are I am right. After all no one complained about the amount of money that was spent to spruce up Brickfields to turn it into a ‘Little India’.

In today’s age, such a description can amount to sedition, as does ‘Chinatown’ because they connote how the Indians and Chinese in Malaysia are descendants of former immigrants and many of them still want to retain such a description.

But my suspicion is that it is the main reason why there are many who do not want the tower to rise as it will mean that the power of the Melayu economy in the city and country is seen to rise too.

I find it pathetic that there are many who do not believe their eyes and ears, when they see and hear that PNB aspires or plans to build a 100-story tower near the site of the Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara.

They were the ones which had taken it as their responsibility to refurbish the two stadiums which were on the verge of collapse and being threatened with extinction and destruction.

Now we have the two stadiums looking almost exactly as they were when they were built. They are Malaysia’s national heritage buildings where Merdeka was proclaimed by Tunku Abdul Rahman on 31 August in the stadium Merdeka.

And PNB has not been given due recognition for having done all of us a favor by spending a lot of money to renovate the two structures which were threatened with extinction when some private companies wanted to demolish them so they could redevelop the whole area into a commercial center or a new township that could help to extend or widen the commercial district of Bukit Bintang.

Therefore, PNB must be allowed to realize their overall plan to further enhance the areas surrounding the Stadium Merdeka and Stadium Negara by constructing the 100-storey tower they call Menara Warisan Merdeka that also includes a commercial center that can generate economic growth for the city of Kuala Lumpur.

But what they have been getting are criticisms.

Why does PNB care for these criticisms? They should proceed with their original plan to develop this tract of property they own for the good of the nation.

Surely, constructing a building which is not imposing cannot do justice to the area where the two national heritage buildings are. So they had to take a lot of effort to come up with their grandiose plans, one of which is the tower.

There are now many critics, skeptics and cynics who have more than 100 tall stories to tell and relate to anyone. Someone also had the audacity to create a Facebook account to further disparage PNB and to belittle their plans.

Most of those who have written nasty things on the tower are not investors or dreamers. They are the ordinary folks who stand to gain much when in the future some of them would definitely want to find any meaningful employment in the many offices that will be houses there, including to visit the commercial center.

Many of them were probably not born yet when the Japanese government wanted to built their new airport in Narita, which is 60 kilometers away from Tokyo. They received a lot of stiff resistance even after the airport was completed.

But today, Narita has become one of the most popular and busy airports in the world.

Those who had criticized the Japanese government are also probably regular users of the airport, since the old Haneda Airport has been turned into their domestic airport.

In fact, we have had similar experiences in the past when each time the government wanted to build something there were many who charged them to be ‘mega’ projects, and they were a waste of public funds.

But they pursued the matter and all of the ‘mega’ projects are now accepted and have become useful to the convenience of many Malaysians and foreigners who come to the country.

And interestingly, the Menara Warisan Merdeka is not a government funded project by one initiated by private initiative, so whatever discontents some people may have are irrelevant as they have as much right to conduct their business as anyone since it is not an illegal activity.

The earlier controversy created by the group of lesser literati was on the demolishing of the old Pudu Prison, which was to make way for the expansion of Jalan Pudu and construction of some commercial establishments on its site.

The controversy has since died when the lesser literati found other ways to express their discontents and displeasures on the Menara Warisan Merdeka.

This will soon stop once they have let out their steam, or when there is another distraction that can cause them to look elsewhere next.

Kuala Lumpur has space and the place for a 100-storey tower. We can afford it. So why can't we all let it rise?

PNB expects the project to take off sometime next year with its completion in 2015. And they do not need to take heed of the disapproval of their cynics, skeptics and critics, as there are many more people in the city and country who support the project by their resounding silence on the matter.

I am certain when the construction of the tower starts, one by one the more than 100 tall stories that the critics, skeptics and cynics of the project has will crash.

I suspect the main reason why there is displeasure at the construction of the 100-tower is that it is a Melayu business and economic venture in a scale which is massive and dramatic which will not fail to distract anyone.

The tower will definitely cause many non-Melayu to look up at it in awe that can also cause the reshaping of the city to include more Melayu presence that can give inspiration to other Melayu investors to want to create similar impact in the city and in the others throughout the country. .

Yet, there are some Melayu who want the tower be moved to Kampung Baru. To them I say, it can have other towers which are taller than Menara Warisan Merdeka.

GARA-GARA BURUK DAN JELEK ANAK GAMPANG KUMPULAN PICISAN BERDERA DAN LASKAR MERAH-PUTIH (LMP) MEMBAWA SIAL DAN MUSIBAH KEPADA INDONESIA!

…MALAPETAKA MENIMPA INDONESIA TIDAK PUTUS-PUTUS, SEMENTARA BENDERA DAN LMP BERPELUK TUBUH DAN BERFIKIR BILA LAGI MAHU CETUS PERBALAHAN DENGAN MALAYSIA.
Oleh Mansor Puteh.



INILAH YANG DIKATAKAN DALAM PERIBAHASA MELAYU, AKIBAT NILA SETITIK ROSAK SEBELANGA…DAN LEMBU MEMBAWA LUMPUR HABIS SEMUA TERPALIT!

MUNGKIN PERIBAHASA MELAYU INI TIDAK DIKETAHUI OLEH ORANG DI INDONESIA. KALAU INI KEADAANNYA, MAKA ADALAH PERLU UNTUK MEREKA KENAL DENGANNYA SUPAYA MEREKA MENGERTI AKAN MAKSUDNYA.

DIMANA SEMUA ANAK GAMPANG KUMPULAN HARAM BENDERA DAN LASKAR MERAH-PUTIH (LMP) SEMENTARA SELURUH INDONESIA BERADA DI DALAM KESUSAHAN?

Banyak nyawa telah terkorban dan banyak lagi akan melayang dalam malapetak yang melanda di Sumatera dan Jawa.

Di mana anak-anak gampang ini semua?

Mereka mengaku mahu selamatkan Indonesia dari Malaysia. Mereka lebih pintar mentadbirkan negara Indonesia, melebihi presiden dan pemerintah mereka sendiri.

Mereka tahu ugut Malaysia sebab mereka mahu jaga maruah dan ketenteraman di Indonesia.

Mereka bertindak luar batasan manusia dan bertindak seperti binatang dengan melepa najis manusia di papan tanda kedutaan besar Malaysia di Jakarta, walaupun ‘najis’ yang ditunjukkan kepada media itu tidak kelihatan seperti najis. Ia adalah tanah.

Sebab mustahil mereka yang membawa najis itu dari rumah mereka ke seluruh Jakarta hingga ke luar kedutaan besar Malaysia sanggup menghidu bau busuk najis manusia sepanjang jalan dalam kenderaan sempit mereka naikki.

Dan pihak media di Jakarta dan rakyat di bandaraya ini seperti setuju dengan tindak-tanduk mereka sebab mereka ‘membenarkan’ kelakuan buruk mereka dan biarkan mereka terus mengulang perbuatan buruk dan busuk mereka itu.

Pihak polis di Jakarta dan pemerintah Indonesia seperti ‘setuju’ juga dengan tindakan yang diambil oleh Bendera dan LMP dengan memeluk tubuh mereka seperti apa yang dilakukan oleh sekelompok rakyat Indonesia itu baik untuk imej negara mereka dan ia juga baik untuk imej Islam yang kini dapat dilihat oleh mereka di barat seperti manusia yang tidak bertamaddun.

Walhal, ia hanya perbuatan sekumpulan anak-anak gampang sahaja.

Tetapi ke mana mereka sekarang? Tidakkah mereka mahu selamatkan Indonesia dari malapetaka yang telah melanda negara mereka sendiri akibat musibah yang mereka sendiri bawa?

Tidakkah mereka sedar Indonesia berada di dalam keadaan cemas dan susah dan kemusnahan yang parah? Yang telah berlaku sejak kebelakangan ini mungkin bukan yang terakhir; ada lagi yang menunggu kalau Bendera dan LMP masih tidak mahu bersyukur dan mahu cetus angkara dengan negara yang telah banyak berbakti kepada rakyat dan negara Indonesia.

Tidakkah mereka mahu jaga kenteteraman Indonesia dan ambil tindakan untuk mengatasinya?

Kenapa tidak dapatkan penyokong mereka dan pergi ke Mentawai di Sumatera atau di Sleman di Jawa dan buat sesuatu untuk membantu mereka yang mengalami kesusahan akibat bencana alam yang telah menimpa mereka?

Kenapa berdiam diri? Kenapa bersembunyi? Keluarkan semua senjata buluh runcing dan sepanduk!

Kenapa mereka tidak menunjukkan muka mereka dan berlagak penting dalam masa sekarang? Mengapa mereka menyembungikan diri?

Mereka hanya tahu dan berani menunjukkan belang dan tarik kontot mereka di hadapan bangunan kedutaan besar Malaysia di Jakarta dan merampok di pejabat syarikat kepunyaan Malaysia di Indonesia.

Tidakah gara-gara ini semua, menunjukkan belang kepada saudara sendiri telah mengakibatkan negara mereka mengalami malapetaka yang tidak ada kesudahannya?

Indonesia berada dalam keadaan yang cemas. Kedudukannya di Nusantara Melayu di Tenggara Asia adalah ditempat yang agak genting.

Bila-bila malapetaka boleh menimpa. Dan bila-bila kerosakan harta-benda boleh berlaku yang mengakibatkan kematian ramai orang awam yang tidak berdosa.

Tetapi Indonesia tidak akan tenang dan terlepas dari gejala alam semulajadi ini kalau rakyatnya tidak menunjukkan kesyukuran mereka kepada Allah.

Mereka akan mendapat musubah sekiranya ada rakyatnya yang berani menunjukkan sikap kurang ajar mereka, khusus kepada orang Melayu dan Islam lain yang serumpun dengannya.

Ini semuanya gara-gara anak gampang Bendera dan LMP, yang menyebabkan Indonesia berada di dalam keadaan ia berada sekarang.

Ini yang dikatakan akibat nila setitik, rosak sebelanga.

Atau lebih tepat lagi, akibat angkara kumpulan kecil dan haram bernama Bendera dan LMP, seluuruh Indonesia berada di dalam keadaan susah.

Salahkan Bendera. Salahkan LMP.

Semua rakyat Indonesia mesti bangkit dan tentang dengan sekeras-kerasnya tindakan anak-anak gampang ini yang telah mengakibatkan seluruh Indonesia berada di dalam keadaan kacau-bilau.

Keadaan seperti ini tidak akan berhenti sekiranya Bendera dan LMP dihapuskan, dan kepala mereka diambil tindakan keras oleh pemerintah Indonesia dan rakyat Indonesia.

Olehsebab merekalah, Indonesia dan seluruh rakyat Indonesia berada di dalam keadaan kacau-bilau dan kecemasan berterusan.

Kalau ini tidak dapat dilakukan, maka rakyat Indonesia terpaksa menanggung bencananya dan dikecam sebagai manusia yang tidak bersyukur kepada Allah; mereka gembira dengan tindakan puak pelampau Bendera dan LMP mereka serta media khususnya pihak televisyen dan akhbar yang telah menyebabkan seluruh Indonesia berada dalam keadaan susah seperti yang ia alami sekarang.

Atau apakah Bendera dan LMP hanya mahu tunggu saat dan ketika untuk mereka bawa najis mereka sendiri ke luar kedutaa besar Malaysia di Jakarta dan buat angkara baru walaupun kejadian ini hanya boleh menconteng muka mereka sendiri dan rakyat dan negara Indonesia termasuk pemerintahnya?

Dalam Islam sesiapa yang memaki seseorang, maka maki-hamun itu kembali kepada dirinya sendiri.

Dan ini adalah yang telah berlaku kepada Bendera dan LMP yang mereka tidak sedar, sebab tahab ilmu mereka tentang Ugama Islam begitu cetek; sebab mereka dipengaruhi oleh syaitan dan iblis yang mahukan mereka memilikki sifat seperti itu.

Syaitan dan iblis yang tidak mahu Umat Islam dan Bangsa Melayu di Nusantara dan seluruh dunia bersatu. Mereka mahu Umat Islam dan Bangsa Melayu berpecah supaya elemen asing yang lebih kejam boleh mempengaruhi mereka seperti apa yang telah lama berlaku di Timur Tengah dan seluruh dunia, bila Umat Islam merempat di bumi ini.

Mustahil pemimpin dan pengikut Bendera dan LMP boleh dianggap sebagai manusia yang waras dan cerdik dengan tindak-tanduk mereka yang sedikitpun tidak melihatkan yang mereka itu benar-benar manusia, tetapi syaitan dan iblis yang menyamar sebagai manusia.

Mereka tidak tahu berterima kasih kepada Melayu di Malaysia yang telah memberi peluang pekerjaan kepada jutaan rakyat Indonesia yang dengan rela hati datang dari seluruh pelusuk Indonesia untuk hidup merantau di Malaysia bekerja di dalam kilang dan di ladang dengan mendapat pendapatan yang lumayan sehingga ramai diantara mereka menjadi mewah di kampung mereka sendiri.

Inikah balasan yang diberi oleh Bendera dan LMP yang tidak berterika kasih dan bersyukur dengan sumbangan dari Melayu di Malaysia?

Dan balasannya ialah gempa bumi, banjir besar, tsunami dan bermacam-macam lagi malapetaka yang terus melanda di Indonesia tidak terputus-putus.

Ia menjadi kerap sejak kebelakangan ini, gara-gara tindakan buruk dari Bendera dan LMP.

Tidak ada guna dengan berdoa dan sembahyang hajat yang mampu dilakukan oleh para ulamak di seluruh Indonesia kalau mereka sendiri tidak ada hajat untuk menahan Bendera dan LMP dari terus membawa sial dan malapetaka kepada rakyat dan negara Indonesia.

Doa dan sembahyang hajat yang dilakukan tidak mendatangkan kesana. Maka malapetaka akan terus melanda di Indonesia selagi rakyat dan negara Indonesia tidak menunjukkan kesanggupan mereka untuk berterima kasih dan bersyukur kepada Melayu dan Muslimin di Malaysia yang telah banyak menghulurkan bantuan dan sokongan kepada mereka.

Dan lebih teruk dari itu, mereka sanggup membenarkan Bendera dan LMP bermaharaja-lela dan mencemuh Malaysia bila mereka dapat peluang melakukannya.
