Is MCA becoming the Malaysian Christian Association?

July 6, 2013 at 1:01 am 171 comments

Continues from ‘Converting minors to another religion‘.

Dr Chua Soi Lek in his July 3 press statement said that there is “strong objection from MCA and MIC” to what he calls “the religion conversion Bill”.

The bill, said the MCA president, “is seen as an infringement of rights of the non-Muslims”.

He reiterated, “MCA fully objects to the tabling of the Administration of the Religion of Islam (Federal Territories) Bill 2013 as it infringes the rights of the non-Muslims”.

In his short press statement, Dr Chua repeated twice that the bill “infringed” on the rights of non-Muslims.

He added that MCA’s stand is very clear as expressed by MCA vice president Gan Ping Sieu and MCA central committee member Loh Seng Kok.

The shock, the horror

Gan Ping Sieu was “shocked to learn” about the Bill which in his view would “seriously and irredeemably affect the religious harmony and national unity of our country”.

Gan in his June 28 press statement said:

“The sudden tabling of the Bill which contains provisions contrary to the Cabinet decision will inevitably be construed as harming the legal rights of the non-Muslims. […] The tabling of the Bill is tantamount to introducing the laws by stealth and is a terrible disservice to the much-talk about national reconciliation.”

Gan’s colleague Loh Seng Kok was “dismayed” at the Bill and “implore[d]” the 7 MCA MPs to not only vote against the Bill but also “to corral the MPs from other political parties irrespective of political coalition to put forward a collective voice” against it.

In his press statement on June 28, Loh said said the Bill was “snaring non-Muslims”.

MCA deputy president Liow Tiong Lai in his press conference on July 3 pointed out that certain KPIs needed to be followed when introducing an amendment to an existing Act.

Liow also said his party MPs would press for the Cabinet can review the Administration of Islam Bill.

Wanita MCA chairman Yu Chok Tow similarly urged all MPs to vote against the Administration of the Religion of Islam (Federal Territory) Bill 2013.

In her press statement on July 5, Yu said, “We must respect a child’s freedom of religion when he or she turns 18, and allow the child to decide for him/herself”.

As you can see, the MCA bigwigs were ALL OF THEM up in arms against the conversion of non-Malay (more specifically Chinese) minors to Islam.

MCA however does not create the same uproar when minors convert to Christianity.

Let’s look at their statements again.

Objection only against conversion to Islam

Dr Chua (1): “strong objection from MCA” to “the religion conversion Bill”.

But no objection to the evangelistas – whose politicians are coddled by his party-owned newspaper – actively converting minors to Christianity.

Dr Chua (2): “MCA fully objects” to the Bill.

But no objection to the evangelistas – whose politicians are coddled by his party-owned newspaper – carrying out their proselytization activities in the Subang Jaya schools.

Gan Ping Sieu (1): The Bill allowing the unilateral conversion of minors would “seriously and irredeemably affect the religious harmony and national unity”.

But GPS has never expressed his concern that the conversion of minors to Christianity would “seriously and irredeemably affect the religious harmony and national unity” too. Not until it affects Malays, is it? But converting Buddhist Chinese and Indian Hindu youngsters is no issue, is it?

Gan Ping Sieu (2): “The tabling of the Bill is tantamount to introducing the laws by stealth…”

But GPS is perfectly fine with the churches trying to convert Malays by stealth and aggressively trying to convert Chinese openly. I don’t recall him making any statements in defence of Muslims when the Damansara Utama Methodist Church (DUMC) was accused to have converted Malays.

Loh Seng Kok: The Bill is “snaring non-Muslims”.

But it’s okay when the evangelistas – whose politicians are coddled by his party-owned newspaper – snare Malays that belong to the ostracized groups (drug addicts, homo-and-transsexuals, unwed single mothers, etc) to convert them to Christianity.

Yu Chok Tow: After the child turns 18, he can be allowed to decide his religion for himself.

What about the schoolchildren under the age of 18 who are converted to Christianity?

Does Datuk Yu know or care whether the 20 converts at the Subang Rally had attained the age of majority before they “accepted Christ” during a mass gathering organized under the auspices of a Subang Jaya education co-curricular event?

What does MCA stand for?

MCA is displaying a double standard here between their differing reactions to conversion to Islam and conversion to Christianity by minors.

Which is more rampant, the conversion of Chinese to Christianity or the conversion of Chinese to Islam?

From the looks of it, MCA is dead set against conversion to Islam.

As we know, the DAP is an evangelista-led party. As we know too, the MCA-owned newspaper berkiblatkan Jerusubang. And The J-Star is the tail that wags the MCA dog.

The line separating the MCA and the DAP is becoming very blur. The chasm separating the MCA and Umno is becoming deeper.

    ‘Dr Chua Soi Lek in his July 3 press statement said that there is “strong objection from MCA and MIC” to what he calls “the religion conversion Bill”.’

    Note the losers pack. So irrelevant, they have to bekerjasama in the fight against the bill.

    Thank you for putting it into perspective Helen. But personally this is no news to me. MCA and CSL doing the thing they did best, time and again. And MIC, with that not more than 500 majority votes president, would also do the thing that they did best; simply tagged along.

    Time and again, we are witnessing that every single time there is something that involves Islam and Muslims, like the Halal certs for example, they non Muslims will interjects and teach us a thing or two about pluralistic society bla-bla, as if we, the Muslims, historically speaking too, do not have any template on treating kafir zimmi.

    The facts that we have treated them Jus Soli with kind since Merdeka have very much gone down the drain.

    These harbi don’t know that they are playing with fire.

    Personally, I don’t agree with the bill. If the situation were reversed, surely there will be quarters that will be similarly unhappy.

    That said, the bill should never have made it past the cabinet. It just goes on to show that the non-Muslims in the cabinet were all sleeping or too preoccupied with something else when it was brought up for discussion.

    However, here’s an article I just read in the Star today:

    http://www.thestar.com.my/News/Nation/2013/07/06/Move-to-defer-Bills-tabling-lauded-Various-groups-join-Barisan-party-leaders-in-praising-Governments.aspx

    Note para 3:

    “MCA wants to take part in the consultation,” he (DS Liow Tiong Lai) said.

    So it left me wondering. They don’t wanna be part of the cabinet & don’t wanna accept any government posts to the extent that they’re disciplining one of their own who followed his Sultan’s instructions BUT they wanna be a part of the consultation? As what? As equal partners? Surely not! As observers & hanger-ons? Quite possibly. Do they deserve to make their stand known? I don’t think so since they’ve renounced that right.

    So why the hell is MCA thinking they should be consulted or be made a part of the consultation over this issue??!!

    Btw, how come Ng Yen Yen isn’t hauled up to the disciplinary committee?

      If they want to be stakeholders under the aegis of BN within inter-party discussions, fine. But MCA has forfeited their right to be included in the government.

      Not only was MCA “wow, terribly unimpressive”, it practically gave a walkover to the DAP as well as allowed their various party machinery to campaign for the opposition.

      That is unforgivable. It was a betrayal and a stab in the back. The 90 percent Chinese votes going to Pakatan speaks for itself.

          Whereas MCA never went for DAP’s jugular despite it coming out tops in several elections. Now MCA is merely a liability to the BN.

    Too clever by half, Helen.

    Why don’t you also mention that Christians are free to convert to other religions without being ostracized or threatened with committing the offence of apostasy?

    As someone wrote recently, becoming a Muslim is “a one-way street”.

    Reply
    • 13. Helen Ang  |  July 6, 2013 at 10:11 am

      You’re saying that Muslims are constrained by the apostasy punishment and social sanction. I don’t disagree with your observations.

      Now let’s take the discussion one step further wrt the mualaf/born again (BA) getting into their respective religions.

      The crux of the issue: MCA finds it most objectionable that minors are converted to Islam. MCA does not find it at all objectionable that minors are converted to Christianity.

      Let’s go to the exit clause. None for Islam. Like you say, it’s “a one-way street”.

      Now, can BAs get themselves out of Christianity? Yes. Does it happen? Perhaps for a small number of drifters. Even Ridhuan Tee was a Christian once.

      However, can or do the majority of BAs really manage to get themselves out of Christianity if they so wish? (along the same line of argument that we’re proffering for the unilaterally converted mualaf child)

      The contents of my previous page – ‘Converting minors to another religion‘ – implies conversion into a cult. The City Harvest Church (CHC) and their ilk are cults. They are not mainline churches with a 2,000-year-old tradition. CHC is only about 20 years old.

      Now what is it about cults? They are founded and led by conman charlatans who brainwash and keep their zombie followers in thrall.

      The evangelical ones in Malaysia are non-denominational, so with them it is Anything Goes. They are not subject to the control of say, the Vatican or other established authorities.

      The CHC Singapore is an abomination. The S’pore authorities have taken action against the church ‘elders’.

      The MCA-owned and MCA-controlled newspaper covered up the CHC scandal even though CHC has branches in Penang and other cities in Malaysia.

      The CHC Subang Jaya has been implicated by the S’pore authorities for ‘money laundering’ the funds which were diverted to “Pastor” Kong Hee’s popstar wannabe wife.

      If you look at the photographs, the cultists are getting the kids young.

      I don’t fault MCA for objecting to the Islam “child conversion” Bill. However I am querying why MCA is displaying such blatant double standards.

      Can you answer?

        MCA does not ‘interfere’ with Hinduism and Sikhism as that would be straying into MIC turf.

        Now what I wanna know is simple: Is MCA becoming the Malaysian Christian Association with its kiblat turning the Jerusubang direction just like its waggy tail The J-Star?

          In the statement by MCA that you youself quoted

          there is “strong objection from MCA and MIC” to what he calls “the religion conversion Bill”.

          Full sentence from the press statement;

          “I am positive that the Prime Minister Dato’ Sri Najib Razak and Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin will consult all BN component parties because of strong objection from MCA and MIC as well as the public.”

          MCA will usually let MIC handle issues regarding the Indian community. But objecting to the bill does not mean they are defending Christians only. In this issue, both the MCA and MIC has voiced their opposition.

          The latest news is that the bill has been pulled. There was talk the Sabah and Sarawakian Barisan Nasional politicians would vote against it too.

              No. Why should you consider them to be the ‘Christian’ association because they voiced objection to the bill?

              The MIC has also opposed the bill. Are you going to label them the ‘Malaysian Indian Christians’ organisation?

                I questioned why they’re anti-conversion of minors to Islam but they’re not anti-conversion of minors to Christianity.

                Since you’re being so defensive of the MCA, can you tell us why the party is anti-conversion of minors to Islam but not anti-conversion of minors to Christianity?

                  I believe MIC also anti-conversion of minors to Islam and not to Christianity…..
                  Reason: simple.

                  In this country,any other race convert to Islam is considered ‘masuk Melayu’….which actually is totally incorrect!

                  In my lifetime, I never encounter any race convert to Christianity to become ‘orang putih’ or ‘mat saleh’, or convert to Hinduism and become Indian or convert to Buddhism to become Chinese.

                  Therefore the misunderstanding still arises.

        What does Islam, Christianity, Buddhism have in common? All are about humility.

        Do the modern day religious practitioners follow this? Super sized churches and services in glitzy hotels – that is new Christianity. Super sized temples and statutes and vegetarian buffets – that is new Tao/Buddhism.

        The below 50s Malaysian cannot pray in a run down Church or small sized temple. It is all about money faith not faith herself.

        With the dwindling numbers of old church goers, they might close down. The old and faithful age and die and their children prefer the new churches. Perhaps only the foreign workers (Pinoys etc) and the Bumiputera Christians are left. (Old churches still have Tagalog and Iban language services.)

        Anybody proud to be a member at the temples at Petaling Street? Instead the new Taiwanese or Japanese Buddhism is MORE IN.

        Helen you got to address the changing values of the Chinese from a community based (and sharing one – like Mahathir said) to the more individualistic and hedonistic community.

    The Chinese girl always wore baju kurung. One day, they were asked why they chose to be around the Malay kids, They said they wanted to marry each other and to become Moslems as soon as they left school. They could not do it then because they were underage.

    By socialising with they Malay kids help them learn and understand Islam better. I hope their parents do not disown them for what they want to do..

        Only the gullible take the bait. Those with an inferiority complex also take the bait. It makes them feel good, for a while.

        Those with ulterior motives i.e money, they too will subscribe to this scam. In other words, it is a cult. Everyone gets what they want, for a price.

                    Keep your eye on the ball please! We’re talking about the New Christianity that has gripped the Dapsters and the Jerusubangites.

                    Who are the people preaching to the BAs? Hannah Yeoh and her I’m-not-Indian (I am Bangsa Malaysia) hubby are pastors.

                    Okay let’s set aside for the moment the homegrown evangelicals who preach their own rapturous brand of Christianity.

                    Let’s just take the established churches to test your “Middle Eastern teachings” claim.

                    Methodist church / also Wesley church — teachings of John Wesley, English guy.

                    Lutheran church — teachings of Martin Luther, German guy

                    Calvinist church — teachings of John Calvin, French guy

                    Anglican church – The name “Anglican” means “of England”.

                    Presbyterian church — Scottish

                    Baptist church — founded in Amsterdam

                    Adventist church — founded in USA

                    Roman Catholic churches — of Rome, of course

                    Granted there are Middle Eastern churches like Coptic and Syrian, but the ones brought here by the colonial missionaries are the White Christianity ones.

                      And the theology is from the Middle East. The scriptures originated from the Middle East. The prophets are Middle Eastern.

                      Bethlehem and Jerusalem is in the Middle East or Middlesborough?

                      The scriptures making up the Bible as we know the holy book today was collated in Greek (the Septuagint) and translated into the language of the church Latin (the Vulgate) and translated into Ye Olde English (the King James version) which are all European languages.

                      Today Jerusubang is still using the English bible albeit in modern English.

                      Like I said, the religion was brought to Malaya by the white missionaries who built ‘white’ churches that go by the names Methodist, Wesley, Lutheran, etc.

                      Back to your original contention: “Christianity is a Middle East religion”. While what you say is not wrong per se, it is debatable.

                      Christendom is synonymous with the West (orang putih). Holy Roman Empire. Pope. Cardinals. St Peter’s Basilica. St Paul’s Cathedral. Notre Dame. Images of its celebration: Snow and reindeer greeting cards. Mistletoe and holly. Santa.

                      “Like I said, the religion was brought to Malaya by the white missionaries who built ‘white’ churches that go by the names Methodist, Wesley, Lutheran, etc.”

                      Islam was brought to Malaya by Indian missionaries and preachers. Zheng He, the famous Chinese admiral who was also a Muslim, may have played a part. That does not make Islam a Chinese or Indian religion, right?

                      “Christendom is synonymous with the West (orang putih).”

                      But major parts of the Christian world is in South America or Africa. Brown and black people.

                      Yes the Indian traders brought Islam to the peninsula but the Quran is uniformly in Arabic.

                      You claimed Christianity is Middle Eastern and I countered that the Bible’s main languages are European.

                      The Quran is different. It came here in Arabic and its terms like kalimah, shahadah, solat, ibadah, kiblat, etc are Arabic. The language of the Quran for Malaccans is not Chinese whatever Admiral Zheng He’s role.

                      re: “But major parts of the Christian world is in South America or Africa. Brown and black people.”

                      My earlier statement stands. I will say it again: The religion was brought to South America or Africa to the brown and black natives by the white Spanish and Portuguese missionaries who built ‘white’ churches that go by the names Catedral de la Inmaculada Conception, etc.

                      And the famous churches in South America look like their European counterparts. They don’t sport Incan or Mayan temple architecture.

                I just want to ask a few questions. If they really follow the teachings of Jesus……………

                One, are these Christians, the men, are they circumcised ?

                And two, are these Christians, they still eat pork ?

                On these 2 counts, Judaism and Islam have more in common with one another. Christianity ?

                I have always wondered why whites hated the Jews so much. Even after we have so much control over their societies, owning so much of the wealth, possess so much political powers through proxies and exercise so much influence through our dominance of the media and entertainment industry, they still hate us so much. Some years ago, a drunk actor even said that the Holocaust didn’t happen. I m sure you know who that actor is ah ha ha ha !

                    I disagree. Circumcision followed the covenant Prophet Abraham made with God the Almighty. Jesus was sent to Bani Israel. Paul made it open to gentiles. Maybe Gospel of Barnabas could shed some light about this. Pork were certainly filthy. Jews, Muslims and some Christians still hold to this.

                      Circumcision is not a sacramental part of Christianity the way say baptism is.

                      As for the gospel of Barnabas, non of the mainstream denominations recognize it.

                      As for pork, there’s no restriction in mainstream churches. The one church that I know of which bans pork consumption would be the Seventh Day Adventist.

                  • 57. Metatron  |  July 7, 2013 at 11:35 am

                    I beg to differ. Circumcision is the sign of the covenant made by Abraham and his descendant with Elohym.

                    Genesis 7 verse 9 o 14..
                    9 Then God said to Abraham, “As for you, you must keep my covenant, you and your descendants after you for the generations to come. 10 This is my covenant with you and your descendants after you, the covenant you are to keep: Every male among you shall be circumcised. 11 You are to undergo circumcision, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and you. 12 For the generations to come every male among you who is eight days old must be circumcised, including those born in your household or bought with money from a foreigner—those who are not your offspring. 13 Whether born in your household or bought with your money, they must be circumcised. My covenant in your flesh is to be an everlasting covenant. 14 Any uncircumcised male, who has not been circumcised in the flesh, will be cut off from his people; he has broken my covenant.”

                    If U don’t circumcise, u’ll be cut off from His people… Jesus circumcised too (Luke 2 verse 21) and he observe Sabbath.

                    If circumcision banned and pork consuming being allowed back in Christianity and parts of Jesus teachings, then how would u explain Jesus words in Matthew 5 : 17?

                    Matthew 5 : 17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them.

                    It’s obvious in the Bible that Jesus never consumed pork, he did circumcised and he observed Sabbath.

                    In retrospect, Muslim are much closer to Jesus compares to the Jerusubang Jesus followers wannabe.. The Jerusubang cult, they are the cut off people.. they keep their foreskin & threw Jesus words in the dustbin. and unto them, on the day of his second coming…

                    On that day many will say to me, “Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?” And then will I declare to them, “I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.” Matthew 7:22–23

                      Why is baptism practiced today instead of circumcision? Btw, since male has their foreskin snipped off, the women are then excluded from God’s people by virtue of a lack of manhood?

                      As for pork, Jesus says;

                      “Don’t you see that nothing that enters a person from the outside can defile them? For it doesn’t go into their heart but into their stomach, and then out of the body.” (In saying this, Jesus declared all foods clean.)

                      He went on: “What comes out of a person is what defiles them. For it is from within, out of a person’s heart, that evil thoughts come—sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and defile a person.” Mark 7: 18-23

                      That is what I’m saying, I’m as gobsmacked as you are? But since you are the Christian between us two, why don’t you tell me?

                      ‘Btw, since male has their foreskin snipped off, the women are then excluded from God’s people by virtue of a lack of manhood?’

                      God had never degenerated women like most cultural Marxist tries to paint. God is Merciful and the Most Gracious.

                      As for pork, after all things being said and done, the question remains whether filthy eating is Jesus doings or not? Did Jesus ever consume pork? He surely didn’t. Did he?

                      Paul has a lot to answer when he tries to teach Jesus teachings to the gentiles. It is never meant for them. When the end justify the means with Paul, it seems, everything goes. Evangelists may not be that new after all.

                    Come on friend, have some respect to Jesus. You are putting your own words into his mouth. Please don’t stray far from the context of the verse you quoted. Mark 7 : 15 or Matthew 15 : 11, whichever verse you quoted it from, starts with verse no 1.
                    Main context of the chapter was about few of Jesus Apostles eating Korban (yes.. Korban : קרבן) without washing their hands. Context of the verse is, whenever you do something or ate something purely for the sake of God, Elohym, Eloi, Eli, Yahweh, YHWH, Rophe or Sabaoth, you’ll surely be protected. Nothing can defile you from within. It’s a funny thing to see Christians today, choose to eat pork (which Jesus never approved of..) and submissively embrace the ‘wash your hand before eating cult’, leaving the verse fall on deaf ears.
                    Please don’t over stretch the verse context. Have some respect to Jesus. Jesus never approved in his own words, that it is kosher to eat pork. But he did encourage Christians to eat poisons, venoms and etc to prove what he said, that nothing could harm or defile any believing Christians, if their faith in God are strong.

                    And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons;they will speak in new tongues; they will pick up snakeswith their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands onsick people, and they will get well.” (Mark 16 : 17 to 18)
                    If u can’t find poisonous snakes venom anywhere to consume, maybe a click to exoreptiles would help..

                    http://www.exoreptiles.com/my/index.php?main_page=index

                    I do not encourage u to do that. I’m warning u that eating poison will cause u fatal harm.. but if u think that u fit the verse 17 – 18, Christians that speak in new tongues, and u really have strong faith in him, who else can stop you when u insist.. But you’ll face some problem with The Constitution. The Constitution clearly said that :

                    Every person has the right to profess and practice his religion and, subject to Clause (4), to propagate it (Article number: 11 (1))..
                    But, Article 11 (5) may stop any attempt to allow any Christians from practising Mark 16 : 17 to 18.

                    Article 11 (5) This Article does not authorize any act contrary to any general law relating to public order, public health or morality.
                    Please don’t interpret Article 11 (5) as an agression on Christian’s freedom to practise their faith and starts 115 demonstrations all over the world. Clause (4) & Clause (5) in Article 11 were designed for Christian’s own good.
                    On circumcision, please, when ur scripture said Man and Foreskin. It really mean Man and Foreskin.Women have their own burden.

                    I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God. A woman should learn in quietness and full submission. I do not permit a woman to teach or to assume authority over a man; she must be quiet. For Adam was formed first, then Eve. And Adam was not the one deceived; it was the woman who was deceived and became a sinner. But women will be saved through childbearing–if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety. (1 Timothy 2 : 9 – 15)
                    Wow.. if what the verses said are true, then how will most of the Christians women today, including some of the politically motivated zealot be saved when they opted for celibacy? These women seriuosly need some foreskin to be slashed and be saved. Just like u fantasies it.
                    To ur info, Tree, Coconut, E.T., Frogs and Binturongs etc are excluded from the above verses. Each have their own loads and burdens suitably design to fit each and their very own capabilty. Please don’t overstretch. If u doubt ur scripture on gender equality, u blame the scribes, redaction and ur church for meddling too much into God’s territory. For the Epistles of Timothy which I quoted, it is Paul’s word that ur church included as the words of God.They are putting their own thoughts, words and patriachial fantasies into God’s scripture.
                    This is the problem with Christians today. They like to overstretch. They leave the actual commandments and do the things that their scripture never approved of. In the discussion context, Jesus asked them to consume venom and leave pork, they consume pork and leave the venom. Luckily we have Article 11 clause 5 to stop any Christians Zealots from fatally harming themselves.

                      Eloi, Eli, Yahweh, Rophe, Sabaoth, El Shaddai, Jirei, God, Lord, Elohym or Allah, as the book serves for no purpose (according to you, Christians) the difference could only add up to mere semantics.

            oh I also forgot. talk about deviant cults by AI. anyone here remembers the Waco siege between February 28 and April 19, 1993 ?

            for those too wet to know what the siege was all about, it was a standoff between the American federal and Texas state enforcement and military against the The Branch Davidians, a Christian sect led by David Koresh.

            The group was suspected of weapons violations and a search and arrest warrant was obtained. needless to say, all in, 76 members of this cult perished. but the influence of David Koresh and his cult didn’t end here.

            in 1995, the Oklahoma City Bomber Timothy McVeigh cited the Waco incident as his primary motivation in carrying out the Oklahoma City bombing.

            clearly violence is not the vocation of a certain group of people, as fondly cited by certain readers of this blog. but then again, certain quarters love to paint Muslims in such a manner hoping that it will stick and Muslims will become overly defensive, and thus allowing this group of people to attack Muslims.

            oh by the way, the BBC has announced that its Channel 4 station will broadcast the Muslim call to prayer every morning throughout the holy month of Ramadan. and guess what ? some people are already calling this move divisive.

            read this http://www.dailymail.co.uk/debate/article-2354053/Channel-4s-plan-air-daily-Muslim-prayer-Ramadan-divisive-cynical-stunt-says-A-N-WILSON.html

              Yeah Islam is rising in Europe because we have asylum seekers running away from their Paradises and attempting to impose their values on the countries which gave them shelter.

              Which also explains the emergence of right wing wankers as a means to combat this rise.

              You should have just stuck with the African American Muslim experience as an example of the rise of Islam battling an entrenched Judaeo-Christian system of oppression . Even this would be problematic but at least it is honest.

                    If it wasn’t for 90210, the original 90210 by the way, not the new one, nobody would have known Luke Perry. I though he did just okay as the cult leader. As for libertarian ideology, its just a niche, I seriously doubt anyone would subscribe to it since the mainstream media is overtly hostile to it, Ron Paul’s run for the presidency being the perfect example.

                    The anti Muslim thing going on in Europe is not sustainable. The white population is aging, birth rates of whites are tumbling across the continent while more and more Muslims make their way to the continent and along with it, the higher birth rates of Muslims. Looking at it, in the medium to longer term, the Muslim population could reach parity with the native whites by 2050.

                    That leaves the Chinese and the Indians holding fort in Asia while the Americans, with the protection of geography, the Atlantic and pacific Oceans, will become increasingly detached from Europe.

                    Many have spoken of a USA – China – India axis as anchor of global security for the 21st century. And its looking increasingly true that this will be the order of things.

                      You would be surprised at the influence of the libertarian ideology and of Ron Paul’s success despite the mainstream media in America. The Republican Party is in fact merely a holding center for the two various extremes of the libertarian ideology. The tea party is grounded it in and the last time I checked a significant number of them were voted into the Senate.

                      There will always be that debate of what exactly is the libertarian ideology esp. when it comes to the social conservative ideas of the right wing, but to dismiss it as niche at this particular time in the US, where the alternative media is just that, is wrong headed.

                      Re: Eventual Muslim parity through birth rates

                      Yes, I have seen the same statistics bandied about by the very same right wing forces that could eventually put a cap on immigration and refugee status. “They will outbreed us” emotional appeal is what is fueling the rise of nationalistic forces in Europe but more importantly an indication of how Muslim extremism is advanced and waters down traditional Western democratic values. But this does not mean my contention that the right wing forces in Europe winning is wrong but we would have to wait and see how far they are willing to go.

                      As it is, prominent liberals in Britain are pointing to the failure of multiculturalism and this points more to how they have coddled Islamic trespass into their traditional secular communities, IMO. France, Belgium , Holland have started sabre rattling through various laws implemented , parties getting into power and the fact that the majoritarian “white” communities there seem amenable to the rise of these right wing factions points to a Clash of some sort….

As for America the last time a group proposed that their existence would eventually detach America from Europe was the German’s Workers Party (DAP), we all know how that turned out. So who knows.

                      It’s not apple and oranges. Hindraf didn’t hijack anything, they brought up the issue. The Muslims dialectic in Europe is not about fighting for the same rights as the natives but changing those rights to suit Islam.

                      Holland being the far left country in terms of welcoming immigrants/refugees is slowly learning that their altruistic ways is thought of as a sign of weakness amongst a certain vocal sect of Muslims.

                      Hirsi Ali didn’t con anyone. While I may not agree with the entirety of her polemics against Islam , I do subscribe to her right to her express herself as do I those in this forum who say “tough luck” when describing the unjust treatment meted out between the various communities in this country.

    Answer here, if you don’t mind.

    Re: Alright. So where does that take MCA vis-a-vis its relationship with Umno-BN?

    Moneymen ? Flufflers ? The fact is the pecuniary interests of the Chinese community will continue to fund UMNO at the same time cavorting with the DAP/PR. Hey it worked when the Yanks played the same game with Iraq and Iran…..

    The fact is, the MCA is a dead duck, killed off by the DAP and its own incompetence and collusion with forces which it thought would remain loyal to it.

    The Chinese have made it clear, what they think of the MCA and the UMNO social contract, which was abused by the BN.

    BUT consider this purely anecdotal or maybe a data point (and which may have nothing to do with this thread)

    I was talking to a former MCA moneyman (I have known since my teens) who now is a member of the Chinese proletariat class of the DAP. He hates the Evangelists with a passion, which is funny to me because I know(knew) his daughter in the Biblical sense.

    “English Keling” he calls me but he means it as a term of endearment. He was telling me that there is a disconnect between the Evangelists and the class he claims to represent. Half the time he says, the Chinese he “jagas” has no idea what is going on.

    Lynas and environmental issues ? Most of them (his people) had no idea what the big fuss was about and when Wong Tuck joined the DAP he (they) assumed there was a profit motif attached.

    Christianity and conversion. Don’t “kacau” the Malays and see to it that they don’t kacau us. This whole idea of “Western” values via the transmission of Christianity is foreign to his kind and him.

    So, he would very well be supportive of your comments of young Chinese converting to Christianity and messing with the traditional culture of the community.

    For instance he was very angry when the whole Psy fiasco took place because he thought that they young people there should have given PM Najib “face”.

    In his view, it would not be a bad thing for the DAP to take over the MCA role in BN.

        Re: Forces

        I have alluded to this before. The Evangelists are not a knew phenomenon here in Malaysia. What is new, is that the DAP has managed to harness it.

        The rise of this movement happened on the MCA watch because it was in fact a “Chinese” issue. The movement crept up on the community but instead of seeing it as a cultural and eventually political threat, the MCA thought it could make money off it.

        For a time this arrangement was successful but in time, the DAP realized that their younger members who were already embedded in the movement would make an ideal force for UBAH.

            Massive amounts of money from this movement in the earlier days (and most probably these days) collected for charitable purposes where used to fund the business ventures of MCA big boys and now most probably the DAP.

            Hell if people knew of the fact that many established companies these days were funded in the gogo days of the movement with the connivance of the MCA, they would most probably vote PSM.

            Of course all this could be considered fitnah but if someone were to actually follow the money trail and the wheeling and dealing that goes on in this movement, they would understand that nobody, Malay, Chinese or Indian, can ever say they have clean hands.

                Following the “money trail” is a time honoured journalistic method of inquiry and investigation. The CIA would never advocate following the money trail, because it would lead back to them.

                Would the Malays be smarter for voting PKR instead of UMNO? Not really because PKR and UMNO are essentially the same. However voting for the Opposition be it PAS, PKR or DAP, would send a message to UMNO – if you think a message needs to be sent, that is. I think it does. I would prefer it if PSM become a force to counter balance mainstream Oppositional politics.

                As for parroting the DAP line, some times you can disagree with a political party but agree on specific issues. It’s called maturity or not allowing partisan bias to get in the way of rational thinking.

                For instance my views on UMNO are known to some readers of this blog, but yet I gave credit where credit was due when it came to the “Allah” controversy.

    Accepting what kind of Christianity is the question. Not traditional church anyway. Helen you should reword your article to “Is MCA becoming the Malaysian Charismatic Association”?

    The traditional churches are having their numbers reduced. How many people go to the Tamil church in Melaka (as in your illustration)? Are the numbers going to the Wesley church near Chin Woo a lot? No. The numbers are dwindling. These churches are not “happening”. In fact Helen the churches in the inner city of KL are full of Pinoys, Bumiputera Christians and old people.

    The new churches are glitzy and more opinionated, unlike the traditional churches. The new churches have rock and roll services unlike the traditional ones where the Padre (they still use old words like these) wear like a period piece in their Sunday services. The new one are in social media. Some in the old churches do not welcome social media (one old one in Penang is an example.).

    Compare an contrast. The bulletin at an old church would about mostly birthdays and funerals (which are quite a lot). Seldom there are youth seminars and no such thing as cell groups. The new one are full on concerts, youth gathering and services at glitzy hotels.

    The new Christians are very brash and many times disrespectful. The old style church maybe outdated but we have a strong sense of community. The same “muhibbah” like the old school Chinese, kampong Malay or Hindu community. The new Christian are taught to propagate, our old style is to serve the community first.

    Helen you have to address the change of values in the Chinese community. The old school is all about service (like the old Christians). The new ones are all about glamour. Service to them is with a payment. No young person is interested in going into the field are serve the disabled or destitute like the traditional temples, churches or mosque community. Just give a big donation and that’s it. You feel humbled because you gave money, not because you mixed with the destitute and felt you are luckier. That is new Christianity. Many of your Christian readers don’t buy the new style Christianity. Call us old fashion.

I considered this is 1972 and thought it is unfair tfor kids to undergo something which could have been provided for in the schools and the other risks to their well-being.

      I don’t know about the other denominations but you can see in the Catholic church at least in Klang Valley, they’re running more & more youth oriented programs.

      In St John’s the Charismatic group seems to be making a comeback with weekly prayer meetings drawing the crowd. They’ve organized two live in youth camps in Genting & Fraser’s as a means to introduce charismatic prayer to the youths & young working adults.

      The Choice & a group I can remember what it’s called (originating from St Francis Xavier) caters to single, working adults below 40. Having attended the former weekend live in program, 38 out of 44 attendees on my weekend were professionals or in managerial positions which equals stable careers & possibly finances.

      The programs will have follow up sessions where they get to know you better before “recruiting” you for their other programs. More often than not, the less endowed either career wise or financially are sidelined as they’re considered to be less than qualified to contribute beyond manual labor like chair arrangements.

      Now, is this how Christians are supposed to treat each other?

      Unfortunately the proliferation of the “disease” that’s prevalent in evangelical church is reaching a worrying level in my opinion. When traditionalists such as the Pope Emeritus decided to bring the liturgy closer to their Latin translation, it pushes the young away. And they will end up in the open arms of the evangelical as they make worshiping hip, cool & fun compared to the curmudgeonly ways of the traditional mainstream denominations.

      The way I see it, the evangelical churches are like swarms of locusts. They don’t care what they destroy & whose life they affect as long as they’re fed. And when they’re done & unable to squeeze an ounce more, they’ll just train their guns on another target. They are destructive & dangerous to say the least.

          Ratzinger. He instituted the new Roman Missal translation from the start of the season of Advent of 2011. It was translated to reflect the original Latin text of the liturgy.

          What he put in motion was a major revamp of prayers which has been used for approximately half a century. Heck, I grew up knowing all that prayer by heart. It was frustrating at the start as the prayers all sound so alien especially when it is sung. But I’ve decided back then to accept it so it ceased to be a problem.

          This move of his was deeply unpopular especially among the youths & those below 50 thereabouts. In fact, it was supposed to have been implemented as far back as Advent of ’09. But it was postponed to explain the train of thoughts & reasons behind the move.

          This has led to quite a few straying away as prayers sung in traditional tunes can be a wee bit boring. Back then, you’re on auto mode mouthing the prayers. Now, you need to have a prayer book in front of you or concentrate on the projected prayers. Thus, the noticeable drop in youth participation in a few Klang Valley Catholic churches that I regularly go to.

            Muslims are being controlled in many ways by the respective religious department. Having said that, I also would like to add that Muslims are in no way better off than their non Muslim counterpart, when facing with cult and devious sects. But at least there is some sort of control in place.

            Non Muslims religious institutions in Malaysia is more of a laissez faire affair. It is up to the respective communities to decide on what to do and which samis to bring into the country. The government seems rather indifferent if not oblivious to this. Heck some are still reporting to the Vatican and it is still business as usual by UMNO, which I believe is very unfortunate for the country especially with 1Malaysia or Malaysian First being thrown in the mix, time and again.

            I just wonder whether the government are doing the Christians, with the advent of the evangelist with their doing as highlighted by the quote below, a disservice for not having any proper control or even attempt to scrutinize this RM2 institutions, as Singapore does?

            re: “the evangelical churches are like swarms of locusts. They don’t care what they destroy & whose life they affect as long as they’re fed”

            Does the government too, doing the non Muslim communities in a way, suffers for the lack of control shown at non Muslim religious institutions, for example on the bunch of ‘alims’ being brought into the country in the name of religion?

            My concern is does the government at least vetted these ‘ulama’, for all we know these might be the Tigers seeking asylum?!

            Or does some non Muslim Malaysians think that this too is one of UMNO’s many scheme to outplay the non Muslim Malaysians, like most things are?

      Greetings Mulan,

      These “kaum baru” Christians you are referring to are probably influenced through-and-through by American liberal-progressive cultural marxism. It is a cocoon of intellectual relativism and social subjectivist theories calculated to benefit certain groupings behind-the-scenes. A humongous scandal-mongering media network allied to Anwar’s liberal islam platform will bring Malaysian civil society down to the dogs of hedonism and social deviancy.

        Definitely being used time and again for almost anything now.

        Perhaps after being successful staging war on Christian values and successfully dismantling monarchy worldwide, these movement have been staging the war against Islam and Muslims ever since.

        The white Americans dilemma mentioned by the anchor on the fight against American values can be seen happening all over the world on Islamic values. Muslims are THE enemy now. Probably why MCA (and others) are so vocal in its opposition towards the bill as opposed to young Buddhist or Hindu being made Christians as highlighted by Helen.

        Thus the need for Muslims to be liberal as oppose to fundamentalist or extremist or islamist (whatever the labels mean) to be the citizen of the world. Otherwise the school of thought is, they might be as well, bombed!

            Bro Islam1st,

            I think you have made very reasonable conclusions about the local opposition’s politicking schema from the American “political correctness program” in the video. The endemic economic-mindedness of our Chinese community have ushered them into the fray of the evangelistic neocon global players.

            Confucius would faint to witness the abandonment of spirituality and ethics in today’s society. The Chinese rejected their traditional heritage wholesale in the 20th century for Communist Marxist materialism, and now its civilizational recuperation is going to take quite some time.

            If not for the blessings of Prophet Muhammad’s intercession and his compassionate teachings we are doomed to go down the track of struggling America today – selfish material pursuits and spiritual ignorance eating into its social fabric. The reactionary wahhabi islamists and scheming libertines amongst us are just the catalyst in the Packatan chemical formula of Chinese-led capitalist reactionism to post-communism.

    Been living among the Chinese community for the last 18years.

    Noticed the kids here below 20yrs old (even those married couples below 50yrs old), hardly go near any temple or Church except (when I see them all dressed up) to attend weddings.

    The one closest is a Catholic church – 1.5km from my home, mainly Indians, not many Chinese seen going there. One shop-office nearby, not sure what sect of Christianity, usually on Sundays notice Indians (no Chinese at all) with orphan kids (2 vans from dont know where) doing some sort of activities along the corridors.

    Chinese practicing other religions; the only active Chinese community here (above 50s are the SaiBaba groups – weekly members collect foodstuff and clothings to distribute to the poors once a while they organize trips to India), other then these, hardly see the Chinese (below 50s) going to temples or whatnot.

        Many Chinese classmates, none of them Christians even today all of them still practice either Taoism or Buddhism.

        Actually in Malaysia, how many percent among the Chinese are Christians? Even in my community here today, I have yet to come across one. Are these groups new converts? Any datas/figures?

          Yes, figures would be good. MCA should do a survey and provide them.

          As for the Born Agains, we can see from the Subang Rally photos, including the SR-2013 edition that Hannah Yeoh tweeted, that these new Christians are teenagers.

          It is doubtful that they’re from convent schools. For example, Hannah’s alma mater which was one of the schools to host the Subang Rally is not a convent but a Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan.

          To examine the spread of evangelism, it is perhaps more instructive to examine City Harvest Church in S’pore or the mega churches in Korea.

          It is a phenomenon of our time and not of the mission school of yore.

        What I m really concerned, as I have mentioned, is that when more and more Malays truly believe that the Chinese, not just the youths but the general Chinese population as well share, harbor the same sentiment regarding the Malays, then we will truly have a backlash coming.

                      Although I do appreciate this argument, I think it conflates a wide range of issues.
                      One of the biggest if not the biggest expressions of Non Malay anti Establishment militancy came in the form of Hindraf.
                      At first glance racial and religious divides seem like two different beasts but the reality here in Malaysia, is that racial issues are more often then not issues concerning religion.
                      I don not think that when MCA was top dog peace was kept. The process of Islamisation points to a culture of appeasement of Non Malay component members.
                      Of course now MCA has been infiltrated by the Evangelists which is why its propaganda organ would be more interested in highlighting the fact that an intrusive State religion which should be applicable to Muslims only intrudes on the lives of Non Muslims – read Christians.
                      Not that I think that this kind of Corporate Christianity is anathema to the kleptocratic agenda of UMNO. MCA is willing to be ravaged by the Rapture crowd because at the end of the day, they realize a new technocratic plutocracy is in the making.

                      We now see with our eyes what happens when a group of people from a 5,000 year old civilization that has been DE-TRIBALIZED. through urbanization and the NEP. And also, the decades of neglect and self-serving attitude of the MCA leadership. The bongo bongo voodoo choral and dancing troupes of Subang Jaya have now taken on a sinister meaning.

                      UMNO is not perfect and definitely no angel. I’m not a member and never interested to be one.

                      Prior to GE13, UMNO had suffered tremendous attacks by PR and its supporters. UMNO was bullied left right and centre and we would understand the motive behind it.

                      Anwar was booted out from UMNO and we would understand his motive behind all the attacks launch from his kampf.

                      PAS, the second best Malay party would always tries hard at winning the Malays either via genuine Islamic activism or faux fatwas.

                      DAP hates UMNO and knows that the Chinese high horse mentality and the hobby to bully and ridicule the Sakai in vernaculars is an opportunity to be fully utilized, thus hate UMNO aka always-spoon-fed-and-good-for-nothing-Malas-Malays.

                      Those reader up there were more or less implicate UMNO for the misunderstanding and racial divides driving Malaysians these days.

                      They may not be blaming UMNO solely like AK47 who would mostly blamed MCA but also pointed out NEP as being the determinant factor of the divides. UMNO promotes NEP, perhaps there lies the blame. But the rests are blunt in their comments, in one way or another blaming UMNO to a greater scheme of things, thus driving the racial divides further.

                      Perhaps that is true after all. Perhaps the flourishing of vernacular schools despite the Perlembagaan Persekutuan are testament to this. If I’m struggling to understand my neighbor because of the language barriers, how can there be dialogue? Its not rocket science is it?

                      How can there be understandings if there were no dialogues initiated for the communicative barriers we seems to impose on ourselves.

                      After more than 50 years of Merdeka, the proud nation can’t even decide on how to unite us all. Bahasa perpaduan is a failed project. I see no wrong for us to go ala Belgians or Swiss on this but, we are not even close.

                      So despite that we seems to see the fitnah narrative flying around in cyberspace by the PRs on UMNO and its doing.

                      Do we at least agree UMNO is at fault for not doing as much as they could in areas that it can, as we can see happening now, for the lack of motivation or whatever?

                      Helen, do you think it is one of UMNO agenda to create further misunderstanding among the different races in Malaysia to keep the status quo?

                      Or it simply the agenda of the PR and this is certainly has no basis whatsoever and I started to sound like LGE the much macho and much arrogant guanyin?

      Yes! I mentioned about the NEP within the context of its push for urbanization and development which brought the young Chinese (and Malays) to the big towns and to a different lifestyle – of loneliness, of finding solace, of boredom, of finding more and more money. In this context, I did not mean the NEP was a dividing factor. Far from it. The NEP brought a lot of good. I am not using the NEP as a game-blamer.

            Islam 1st. No problem. There has always been a lot of goodwill between the Malays, the Chinese and the Indians and all. What the Opposition is bellyaching about is the ADMINISTRATIVE SCANDALS which is at the lower rung of a GOVERNMENT ADMINISTRATION, The BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties has always formulated good Policies since 1957 especially between 1981 to 2003. Thereafter, somehow, the Administration forgot how to rule us and did all sorts of funny things which led to the present conundrum. There is nothing wrong with the BN, the Malays, the Chinese, the Indians and all. People have got to say something to earn a living. Once the Administration returns to normalcy there will be no more excuses for the Opposition to make noise.

    quote “The crux of the issue: MCA finds it most objectionable that minors are converted to Islam. MCA does not find it at all objectionable that minors are converted to Christianity.” unquote – Helen.

    My exact sentiment.

    I’ve heard statements from Cina parents who proclaimed that they wouldn’t mind their kids to convert to Christian, but they would earnestly object if their kids converted to Islam.

    Personally I think not only MCA feels that way, but MIC, Gerakan, DAP (or course), Dong Ziong and any non-Islam/Malay NGOs share the same sentiment with MCA.

    My stand in this matter is biased, I must admit. I am a Muslim, and I fully support a parent Muslim RIGHT to convert his or her children to Islam if the other parent is a non-Muslim. Not fair to non-Muslim? Tough luck!

      I’ve renounced church activities beyond the prerequisite weekend masses & holy days of obligation in favor of making a small difference my own way. Amazing how a few canned coffee & Gardenia buns can brighten up a couple of cops’ day. And it’s good for the soul too, this kind of giving.

    CSL sejak disabitkan dgn skandal seks sehingga hari ini kdg2 keputusan dan tindak tanduknya amat sumbang, MCA kini amat parah, perlu ada seseorang bangkit menyelamatkannya sebelum ia terus berkubur, CSL sepatutnya sudah lama disingkirkan terus dari arena politik negara, ramai pemimpin muda bangsa Cina yang boleh ambil alih tempatnya.

    Di Malaysia nampaknya sudah semakin ramai orang muda yang berfikiran terlalu liberal tak kiralah Melayu, Cina atau India nakkan kebebasan kononnya, ingat bahaya LGBT. Conversion Bill perlu dilihat secara meluas khasnya dipihak orang Melayu Islam

    FFC. I got an ‘A’ for Scriptures in the Cambridge Syndicate Examinations. I respect your valued comments. The way the new Chrisians are going about their thingy in this beloved Malaysia is the wrong way because it is based on the wrong premise.

    Real story on their quotations. One Tan Sri Datuk JP Dr XYZ blurted out to me a quotation from the Bible. Then, he looked across to his secretary to confirm whether he said it correctly. She looked at the Bible and told her Boss, he had indeed quoted every word correctly.

    It was not transparent. It was opaque.

      I suppose the more “radical” sheep like your good self & me would eventually experience these bible quoting kinds.

      Being a Gen X tail-ender, I never had the opportunity to take up bible studies despite 11 years in a Catholic Mission school. My bible knowledge is down to the prerequisite Sunday School sessions in preparation for Holy Communion, Confession & Confirmation.

      Having met one of these bible quote loving creatures at a weekend singles adult program, I was intentionally provoked with bible quotes due to my lack of interest in volunteering my services for their future program.

      As Christians are fond saying that in their greatest hour, they were guided by the Holy Spirit, so I shall say the same. A sharp retort came out from nowhere in the form of a bible verse. And he responded in kind & the ding dong battle went back & forth in front of a captive audience until I was “guided” to deliver the knockout blow by quoting “man does not live on bread alone”. Don’t ask me how it got there because to this day I have no recollection of how a quote on dedicating one’s life to God ended up with a quote from the temptation of Jesus in the desert.

      That spirited 15 minutes exchange made me realize that men can be such twisted beings that even the word of God is manipulated for self serving purposes. That has added to the skepticism I’ve had for the outwardly self proclaimed “holy” & “righteous” kind as they are usually anything but.

      Btw, have a pleasant Sunday afternoon sir.

      The Evangelical movement is the new kid on the block when it comes to financial and religious (Christian) skulduggery . The Vatican has had centuries to master their craft and it is about time that they found a worthy (if inexperienced) adversary in the Evangelical movement.

      Aldrich Mansion belongs to the Roman Catholic Diocese of Providence and was used as a location in Meet Joe Black. Didn’t I say they put on a great show.

    In response to Islam1st post #65

    You really do not want to go down that road with me.

    In response to post Islam1st post # 88

    You are too caught up in the “ignorant” discourse. UMNO positions itself as the defender of a certain class of Malays. PAS presents its Islamic credentials every chance it gets and both try to outIslmaize each other.

    Establishment partisans claim Opposition supporters are ignorant while Opposition partisans claim the same of their counterparts. If you think that I think that voting for UMNO or PAS means the voter self identifies in a certain way, you would be correct but not for the reasons you think.

    Voting for MCA, MIC and other BN component parties is a vote for UMNO. Do not attempt to portray it as anything else.

    I have already told you whom I think the Malays should vote for and why. I believe that the only thing that voting Opposition means would be that the most basic principle of democracy, that it governments can and should be changed, would be fulfilled. I think this principle would benefit everyone esp. the Malays.

    While I do not disagree with your point on the Malay/Muslim power structure of PR, I will defiantly advocate PKR, PAS or the DAP as an option. Nobody in the alternative alliance is willing to chart a new course for the Malay community beyond offering fancy rhetoric so while we may get a superficial change in government it may lead to possible changes in the way how Malaysians but more importantly the Malay view their place in the System.

    Remember there will only be a change of Government if the Malays will it (not that I am ignorant of how the electoral system is set up but….). Politicians would be wise to remember this fact and not merely because they can rely on vote banks.

      This land have seen all sorts of skin colors over many centuries, Dutch, Portugese, Sulus, Arabs, British, Japanese and so on – and today, the presence of all sorts (and colors) of decendants of immigrants including hundreds of Thousands of foreign workers – Indons, Banglas, Mynmars, Viets, Cambodians, Africans, Thais.

      All landed here for one and the only one reason…(no need to spell you all know the reason why your ancestors decided to come here),

      Who are you to know what is best for the Malays? (Sultanate of Kedah was the earliest sultanate on the Malay Peninsula and one of the oldest Sultanates in the world, founded in 1136). You all too one day will merely be part of our cucu cicits history.

        Who is anyone? UMNO ? PAS ? PKR?

        The first three claim to know what is best for the Malays, each believing that its policies are different from the other, ethnicity being the common ground.

        Although I appreciate the verbatim Wikipedia quote on the Kedah Sultanate, that particular historical fact points more to the diversity of the land and the hidden history than any narrative UMNO wishes to further.

        I know how the arrival of my ancestors benefitted this land (no need to spell out how) but really one day we will all join them as children of history.

        Since I was asked a question I answered it .

        Around here everyone seems to know what’s best for the Chinese, which makes your question hypocritical. If you think about it, my advise of changing governments would be the same to every community, which is a far more honest position.

          You need to get to know us Bumiputras better, live, eat and interact everyday with us only then will you realise why UMNO and BN (excluding MCA) will always remain strong – despite having six different PMs heading it since Merdeka.

          Change? You truly seriously think DAP, PAS or KEADILAN will bring in changes? BTW who among them will lead pakatan, too many heads each with a completely different mission? LKS has been a loser since Merdeka. Anwar an UMNO ex-sacked Deputy PM. PAS?

          ……Two of my SIL are strong supporters, both married foreigners (Pakistani-UK citizen) and a Nepalese (Hindu convert) and all are Syiah fanatic followers. See the pattern?

          Just UMNO 88seats against Pakatan total of 89 – this 133seats will increase comfortably come GE14, thanks to the GE13 Chinese Tsunami and the hardworking Red Beans Army.

            Re Rina’s “ ….why UMNO and BN (excluding MCA) will always remain strong”

            Well as someone who has advocated (professionally) on behalf of the Orang Asal, worked with the “Malays” from various economic background and at differing level both in government and the private sector, and currently involved in educational endeavors with mostly underprivileged Malay students I know very well why UMNO is going through a crisis of confidence and able to sustain itself even though they do not need Chinese backing politically.

            Re: “You truly seriously think DAP, PAS or KEADILAN will bring in changes?”

            In all my post here I have been skeptical of the UBAH pakatan could bring. However I do believe that a change of government is the first step that could be the opportunity for productive change. I do not see PR conflicting agendas as something negative, in fact I would argue that it is a safeguard against hegemonic interests.

            Re: “See the pattern?”

            Yes, however the Arabisation process happened under the UMNO watch. Read my thoughts and Helen’s in our Retro Malay exchange.

            Re: “….this 133seats will increase comfortably come GE14, thanks to the GE13 Chinese Tsunami and the hardworking Red Beans Army.”

            I can understand how it working both ways would cause agitation in you.

            Re: “….he too share similar feelings as you ie without the Indons Malaysia is nowhere.”

            Doubtful. The Indonesian subaltern history is different then mine and probably he became a Malaysian without as much effort as the “pendatangs” of my kind. The Indonesian experience does apply to some Bangladeshis, though. Why wait 30 years? The evidence if we are talking cheap foreign labor and the economic advantage it brings to the country is right in front of our eyes.

            Re: “For a country to be successful, one very important factor is stability”

            What makes you think that there would be no stability under PR ? PAS’s rule in Kelantan has been stable, so has PR’s rule in Penang, Selangor etc. As you yourself claim there is no real change coming from PR, hence whatever stability that UMNO offered would be in place with a PR rule.

            Re: “Try going to Egypt or Africa and see what you all can do there now – agak you bole ke makan satu hari satu mangkuk moy in peace?”

            Worked in Egypt and worked and traveled in various African countries after SPM. Did you know that many Malay(sians) study in the middle East region, one of the most unstable regions in the world. Why is that ? More importantly what are they bringing back
            with them?

            You really do not have a clue when you go on about stability but seem oblivious to the sub rosa influences that seeps into this country via UMNO and PAS.

THE WONDERFUL TAN SRI LEE SAN CHOON HALL is just right for all the gatherings of the flock. Please invite me for the opening.
