The PAS muktamar is over. Pakatan remains intact. So there goes Umno’s Plan A.
Nonetheless, from now until GE14, you can be sure that a welcome mat will be kept out for the Islamist party PAS by the Malay party Umno.
After all, at the end of the day, the PAS man is a Muslim, the Umno man is a Muslim. The PAS man is a Malay, the Umno man is a Malay. The PAS man speaks Melayu, the Umno man speaks Melayu. The PAS man practises local adab, his DAP partner is thoroughly biadab.
Thus the PAS grassroots can only expect more PIS (Provocation, Insult, Slander) to be dished out to them by the Dapsters.
Nature red in tooth and claw
And what should Umno expect going into the future?
For one, the DAP and the MCA locked in mutual embrace.
Umno should also expect that the Chinese will want to ABU, which translates in practical terms as “Kuburkan Umno”.
This being the case, the next move plotted by Umno president Najib Razak to stave off the impending stiletto in the back is awaited with eager anticipation.
But wait. Gasp.
What does the Boss Man do? He launches a National Unity Consultative Council to talk shop for six months.
The J-Star today reported the Prime Minister as saying, “It is my fervent wish to see that we will not see each other through racial and religious lenses.”
It does not compute.
Why is Najib speaking like a Dapster?!
The National Unity Consultative Council … more CON-SULTANTS!
Larry, Curly and Moe
Guess who Najib has included in this newly established NUCC?
Saifuddin Abdullah — the Malaysian Firster beloved of the Jerusubang paper
Mujahid Yusof Rawa — the church frequenter beloved of the evangelistas
Marina Mahathir — the Bangsa Malaysia VIP who is suing Isma and beloved of the Dapsters
Err, again … why did Najib set up this NUCC comprising the three aforementioned individuals along with 26 other assorted title holders?
What does Isma think?
How is Isma reacting to the NUCC initiative and Marina’s role in it?
Please note, you heard it here first: Isma is shaping up to be a force to reckon with. They are Majlis Syura on steroids.
Isma will be to GE14 what Hindraf was to GE12.
What is Najib thinking?
According to the J-Star:
“He [Najib] said the setting up of the council was a testimony of the Government’s commitment to ensure unity among races remained solid, stressing that nation building could not be achieved if there was no unity among the people.”
The man is clue1ess
Woe is Umno
There’s a popular saying that goes, “Don’t argue with idiots because they will drag you down to their level and then beat you with experience”.
By venturing into Firster terrain, Umno are only lending themselves to being dragged down to the Dapster putar alam level and allowing the Lidah Bercabang to beat them with experience.
For Najib to adopt the Malaysian First dogma – “we will not see each other through racial and religious lenses” – is already to cede the ideological ground to his opponent. And mind you, this opponent is the Bintang Tiga. Very ganas loh. And they will exploit every opening provided them to the max.
Take my word for it: This NUCC will backfire on the BN.
Ingat Dapster, ingat gengSTAR
In his (colour) blindness, Najib could well be the one to cede Allah to the Christians much like how Abdullah Badawi ceded Pulau Batu Putih to Singapore.
Najib does not look like he is able to rally the troops under his banner to go into pitched battle. He is instead leading Umno to a summer camp to sing Kumbaya.
If he is to be the war general, you can rest assured that BN will be sitting in the opposition benches following GE14.
Lose the federal government and you will never get it back.
Najib’s inability to go for the jugular will be fatal to Umno

Looking at the faces of these people, I really doubt what these people going to achieve. In the dichotomy of the racial divide, we have the establishment group and the anti-establishment group (I purposely use this term to avoid using term like ultra-Malay and ultra-anti-Malay) that will go against anything dear to the establishment group, we have in the middle a group like the Anasian (Anas) who will constantly churn out childish message of love, unity and harmony knowing that these two groups will not give a damn to what he said. I can see the group mostly are from the Anasian.
What do you think people like Marina will do? She is not even accepted by the majority of the Malay, what more with the establishment group. Saifuddin? Shameless person who is rejected even by the people of his own constitution. Lee Lam Thye, will the Dapster accept him?
If Najib is serious about unity, he should
1. Take action against all the racial and religious provocateur.
2. Bring LGE, LKS, Zul Nordin, Ibrahim Ali, Ridhwan Tee, Hindraf leaders to be in the committee for unity council.
What Najib is doing now is a waste of time.
re “What Najib is doing now is a waste of time.”
Not only that, he’s handing the opposition a win-win political capital on a silver platter. This NUCC is a mistake by Najib.
Looks like KJ is not the only one inviting vampires inside the home now huh?
Or perhaps the consultants and their fancy acronym agencies have been the harbinger all along.
KJ is a chief lieutenant in Team Najib.
Najib, KJ, Pak Lah, Nazri Aziz, Saifuddin Abdullah ..all of them are mediocre!
What a shame to have a PM like Najib who got no balls.
As a former Pengerusi Perhubungan UMNO Selangor, Najib should take the responsibility of Chinese Tsunami and BN very bad performance in the last GE13. His KPI = 0 (Failed)
Only a mediocre will appreciate the other mediocre like Saifuddin. No wonder he’s one of the member in NUCC.
What a shame Najib!
and also waste of money.
Nowadays apa sahaja Najib buat, semua nampak sumbang. Kesian orang Melayu dalam membuat pilihan. Pemimpin PAS langsung tak boleh harap sementara pemimpin UMNO pun semakin mengecewakan. Marina Mahathir? Wardina? How can you pilih musuh-musuh you untuk tolong you buat kerja? Tak faham, tak faham.
Your two suggestions are really quite brilliant!
Re No. 2: When Najib gathers that group of diametrically opposed people at the same discussion table he had better arm himself with a big stick so that he can whack their heads whenever these fellows forget themselves and launch off into racial and religious bigotry.
Najib tidak pernah belajar… Kerja dia asyik memikirkan cara untuk ‘please’ DAPster and their associates. Kadang2 aku fikir, Najib ini adakah dia seorang PM de facto kpd PR? Tiada langsung ketegasan dlm sebarang isu. Yang ada hanyalah populariti. Masa depan negara ditadbir dengan landasan populariti. Another CONsultan apart from existing one RM7.2 Billion..
Dia melayan pembangkang seperti melayan parti komponen BN. Sedangkan pembangkang (read DAPster) siang malam pagi petang memikirkan cara menjahanamkan UMNO dan beliau sbg PRESIDEN UMNO. Mcm gampang je …
re: “Sedangkan pembangkang (read DAPster) siang malam pagi petang memikirkan cara menjahanamkan UMNO”
They will succeed if DS Najib continues on the same current trajectory.
Re. They will succeed if DS Najib continues on the same current trajectory
They have already succeeded to a “certain degree” based on the PAU and PAS election results.
I do hope ISMA will start capitalizing on this situation.
Najib actually looks down on Malays. So he has all these consultants giving him ideas that are very damaging. Senior government officers are not up to mark according to Najib. So, overpaid young consultants must be hired to give ideas that are not grounded in reality. These government officers are not up to Najib as they look “too Malays’. On the other hand, young “cikus” are more liberal, more giving.
He ignores time tested genuine concern of Malays by siding with those who literally wage war against his government. What Najib is thinking by appointing all those saying nasty things to him in Majlis Konsultasi….
Why must he create another consultation body anyway.
Do not underestimae Najib displeasure towards the ca ya nun alif, despite his concessions to the firsters lizards, he has also been generous to the Bumi cause, he is ramping up Bumi oriented programmes such as postgraduate loans to Bumis , the no. of MARA assisted scholars has never been as high as the early years of the the NEP during the reign of his father plus gradually upgrading MARA Polytech and Colleges into universities to encourage vocational education to complement the UiTM professional oriented programmes and encouragung Bumi entrepreneurship and developing Bumi foothold in the oil and gas industry. Najib pro NEP stance remainds a reason for the firsters to despise him for the next 7 generations.
the problem is that all these names are proposed by these so called consatans. Najib doesnt have a clue who to pick and choose anyway. He is clueless and should we go and ask him on the basis of the appointment he would go bonkers.
are these dungus being paid to talk cock for 6 months?
When Helen said that the man is clue1ess.. that basically sums it up. I would also like to add use1ess and 1ncompetent to the equation.
As a BN supporter I am truly embarrass to have him as my 1eader..
Saya tak pernah berjumpa seorang bukan Melayu yang tak menghargai usaha-usaha untuk menghormonikan hubungan Melayu dan bukan Melayu. Kenapa saudari berfikiran sebegini?
Sebab usaha NUCC itu suam-suam kuku, omong-omong kosong dan tidak dijangka berbaloi. Sebab pengikut-pengikut DAP boleh diibaratkan sebagai diletakkan di dalam kem latihan tentera perang saraf manakala orang Umno masih lagi bersuka ria di summer camp.
Sebab saya seorang bukan Melayu yang berada di kalangan hanya 10 peratus orang Cina yang tidak mengundi DAP pada pilihanraya umum lepas. Sebab saya penganalisa berpemikiran kritis yang menongkah arus herd mentality. Sebab saya seorang Cina yang menulis dalam bahasa kebangsaan membincangkan isu-isu masyarakat India terpinggir dengan sebuah audien yang kebanyakan Melayu.
Saya tidak percaya akan tunjuk perpaduan olok-olok dengan memakai tudung naik turun masjid sama ada untuk memancing undi atau mengada-ngada.
dari pemerhatian, penelitian setiap kata kata dan tindakan pemimpin dan mayarakat cina sebenarnya kita sangat mudah mengenal pasti siapa mereka.
apa yang perlu otak kita kena berfikir, mata kita kena memandang, telinga kita perlu mendengar, dan seterusnya proses segala maklumat.
sumber maklumat jangan dihadkan, sejarah dahulu hingga sekarang perlu dirujuk, permerhatian perlu dibuat dari hal yang kecil kepada yang besar, apa yang di katakan perlu difahami maksudnya secara tersurat dan tersirat.

Saith the Keeper to the City of Knowledge,
Khalifah Ali bin Abu Talib (r.a.):
* He who listens to a backbiter loses a friend.
* Give a thousand chances to your enemy to become your friend but never give a single chance to your friend to become your enemy.
* The vision of the eye is limited while the vision of the heart transcends all barriers of time and space.
* He who busies himself with things other than improvement of his own self becomes perplexed in darkness and entangled in ruin. His evil spirits immerse him deep in vices and make his bad actions seem handsome.
* Truth is bitter, but its result is sweet; falsehood appears to be sweet but it is poisonous in its effect.

“Isma will be to GE14 what Hindraf was to GE12.”
And if they form a political party and run for GE14, I’ll be the first to offer my services to help them with their campaign.
Why? Cause I’m sick and disappointed of the current line-up from both sides of the divide.
ISMA will be run in next GE using platform ‘Berjasa’.. your offer to help can start now by promoting this our new platform.. don’t wait until next GE.. May Allah bless us..
Why is promoting unity and consensus among ethno-religious groups considered “Dapster”-ism? If Najib is really for it, then it is in the right direction.
Marina may not be liked by the conservative Malays. But the middle ground and liberal-minded ones view her favourably. Add together the non Malays who mostly have a positive view of her, and you will likely have over half of Malaysians with a favourable opinion of her.
It seems the right wing factions in both the Opposition (in PAS) and Barisan Nasional (the Mahathir-team) are losing influence. Good to know.
Najib said: “It is my fervent wish to see that we will not see each other through racial and religious lenses.”
That’s like Hannah Yeoh petitioning him so that the National Registration Department will not record her child as Chinese or Indian but create a new category box ‘Anak Malaysia’ just to please HRH.
It’s the hypocrisy of the endeavour that when her demand was rejected, she fell back to preferring ‘Chinese’ rather than ‘Indian’ classification.
And the further hypocrisy is that while she is happy to abolish the Race box, she quite content at the same with keeping the Religion box and proud to have her daughter’s birth cert list the ‘Christian’ detail.
There’s nothing wrong with ethnic co-operation but with such hypocrites, how can you expect ketam untuk mengajar anaknya berjalan lurus?
I don’t have any issues with the emphasis on nationality (Chinese Thai behave like Thais, Chinese Indonesians behave like Indonesians) but over here the Malaysian Firsters don’t even speak the national language on top of being buta sejarah and ignorant of the culture and traditions of the land.
So the upshot is not any inherent problem with the concept of “Malaysian First” per se (if the interpretation can be supported) but with the people thumping their chests that they’re the best ones to tell others what being Malaysian is all about.
If there is no inherent problem with the idea of Malaysian First, then Najib should be commended on the step in the right direction (whether this is merely lip service remains to be seen), and not criticised on the premise that this concept is also being promoted by the opposition coalition.
It is like criticising a person for starting to promote environmental conservation because his (and your) enemy is also promoting it.
re: “this concept is also being promoted by the opposition coalition”
Hannah Yeoh put forward her daughter by the name of Shay Adora as the Anak Malaysia prototype.
Najib is NOT taking a step in the right directing by allowing himself to be sucked into the Firster vortex, saying “It is my [the PM’s] fervent wish to see that we will not see each other through racial and religious lenses”. He is merely aligning himself with the Firster ideologues who are unable to differentiate between ethnicity and nationality.
Firsters have shown their true colours through their treatment of mamak, mualaf Cina, Indonesian maids and Bangladeshis but yet pretending to be colour blind while at the same time wanting to usurp the position of Islam (Christian triumphalism).
They write the rules of the Malaysian First game. Najib is foolhardy to play.
re: “I don’t have any issues with the emphasis on nationality (Chinese Thai behave like Thais, Chinese Indonesians behave like Indonesians) but over here the Malaysian Firsters don’t even speak the national language on top of being buta sejarah and ignorant of the culture and traditions of the land.”
One can’t say it often enough: There is no viable alternative to a National Mainstream Schooling system that provides for the integration of other co-curriculums …. because for the past 40 years, the social-psychology of our vernacular schools have partitioned our children apart from one another, and continues shredding at our pluralistic society with their various unwarranted private-group interests. Furthermore today, more than ever, we need to invest in high quality school infrastructures and in the human-capital that is “the teacher”
funny skit but a pathetic reality: [YouTube]
re: “One can’t say it often enough: There is no viable alternative to a National Mainstream Schooling system”
Residential schools filled with one race segregate, MCKK and Tunku Kurshiah segregate, MRSMs and Matriculation Colleges segregate, UiTM segregates.
The Mara institutions can hardly be said to represent a national mainstream schooling system.
Taking action against vernacular schools is like bringing a horse to water but there is no assurance that the horse will drink. BM has been made a compulsory pass in SPM for decades yet many readers here complain that the Chinese cannot (or simply refuse) to speak the national language.
Now History is going to be made another compulsory pass subject in SPM. Is this going to ensure that the non-Malay students gain the understanding that will foster the much vaunted “national unity” that Najib is paying his NUCC consultants to develop?
Ms H. As a layman, I think, maybe Plan B includes the Blue Singaporean Trojan Horse DAP and the pious PAS but not the very wealthy PKR and the Red MCA. Slowly, slowly catchee monkey !
Ms H. If what I perceive the Plan B to be, then it will be earth shattering. And all the latuks of Pulau Pinang will breathe easy – money, money, money !
Can you elaborate a bit more?
Ms H. You just look at the ageing Opposition leaders even though they will all touch 100 !
Ms H. By opposing, only the very few at the top benefit in a small way. But with POWER, political power, ALL of the supporters of the Opposition parties will benefit. In Malaysia, 5 years is a very long time in politics.
re: “But with POWER, political power, ALL of the supporters of the Opposition parties will benefit.”
How have the Chinese and Indians benefited in Selangor? Hindu temples demolished but evangelical churches built?
Ms H. Precisely. Round pegs in round holes. Square pegs in square holes. When we have a non-representation of views of any kind and a mis-location of POWER of any type, we have the sort of situations which had now cropped up in our beloved Malaysia. This is the reason why I exhorted my compatriots for many years to vote BN. It is just practical politics. In Opposition we have no POWER.
Ms H. You have to examine the leaderships on both sides of the political divide too as politics change ever so quickly
Ms H. If you kindly look and examine the hard political issues of the day in our beloved Malaysia, the only positive and realpolitik way for the Opposition (to deliver) which had spent decades in opposing, is to join the BN as led by the UMNO with the 13 component parties especially when the BN Government reverts to ‘normal practices’. This is our Malaysian Democracy – all join in and have some fun.
The opposition is already in the BN. They are MCA and Gerakan.
Ms H. You agree with me, no one is sleeping in politics of the Malaysian kind. Sooner or later, a line has to be drawn in the sand. And the non-astute will be out-maneuvered by the astute.
You see how the key States of Pulau Pinang and Selangor struggling to maintain sustainability.. The former, a shortage of funds and the latter, the wherewithal to sustain the infra structure for the investors’ happiness. How long can this state of affairs last for the investors who provide employment and money ?
Ms H. And we are not talking about a down turn in the general economy which will come sooner rather than later.
Ms H. If you cruise around Petaling Jaya, Selangor, you will see every other residential dwelling being turned into shops. What does this tell us ? Enforecement ot collect car park fees, etc becomes stricter. Money, money, money.
Ms H. An expert in Communist Insurgency once told me many years ago that if Communism comes into contact with Capitalism, it will be influenced and corrupted. Now, if you look at the National Consultative Council in a similar light , what do you think will happen ? – if you are subjected to fine living and trappings at the very top ?
Ms H. Please look at the picture of the Prime Minister with the National Consultative Council again. Don’t you think that the Opposition members look very comfy in the BN ?
Ms H. And by joining the National Consultative Council, the Opposition once again proves that our Malaysian Democracy is for real because without the Opposition it is not complete. Washington DC where are you ?
Ms H. Many thanks for your distinguished Blog which is slowly become an icon of sorts. By debating here, I also slowly began to think more precisely. So much so, I observed that most comments were based on a glass which is half empty and not half full. Hence the conundrum !
What does ISMA think?
Kesilapan demi kesilapan UMNO dan PAS dalam mentafsir kehendak orang melayu adalah bermakna akan semakin bercambah dan bertambah sokongan kepada ISMA.
Kealpaan melayu (UMNO dan PAS) serta Cina (DAP dan MCA) dengan permainan golongan mabuk kuasa (Anwar PKR) akan menyebabkan melayu beralih menumpahkan kesetiaan kepada ISMA.. Masanya pasti tiba jika situasi sekarang ini berterusan dan apabila nasi sudah menjadi bubur maka kita makanlah bubur ini beramai ramai..
Saya sangat mencurigai ISMA namun sejujurnya, saya menyampah dengan kelakuan serta tindakan presiden UMNO ini.. Presiden PAS!! ini budah suruhan Anwar sahaja.. Anwar!! ini orang yang hanya mahu jadi PM sebelum mati dan akan akur serta patuh dengan percaturan DAP..
re: “Kealpaan melayu (UMNO dan PAS) serta Cina (DAP dan MCA) dengan permainan golongan mabuk kuasa (Anwar PKR) akan menyebabkan melayu beralih menumpahkan kesetiaan kepada ISMA..”
Setuju. Golongan kemaruk kuasa DAP 3.0 juga.
re: “Saya sangat mencurigai ISMA namun sejujurnya, saya menyampah dengan kelakuan serta tindakan presiden UMNO ini..”
ISMA akan menggantikan Perkasa ?
Perkasa di pimpin oleh ahli politik (bekas?) yang ketara pro UMNO tetapi ISMA ini di pimpin oleh ‘ulama professional’ yang tidak dipengaruhi oleh ahli politik. Sebab itu saya menjangka mereka yang hilang kepercayaan kepada ahli politik akan cenderung bersama ISMA.
Isma ditanggap sebagai sebuah pertubuhan yang berdikari kerana ia bersikap berkecuali — Umno dan PAS/PKR kedua-duanya dikritik.
Ditambah lagi, Isma ni pintar, pantas bertindakbalas dan berjaya mendapat keyakinan orangramai bahawa mereka akan bersungguh-sunnguh mempertahankan kewibawaan Islam.
Anggapan tentang Perkasa pula ialah mereka hanya berupa outsource Umno.
Bagi umat Islam, perjuangan Isma adalah disambut lebih mesra berbanding perjuangan Perkasa yang bertonggakkan ‘hak Melayu’ (unsur yang dicop “rasis”!! oleh media pembangkang).
PERKASA and ISMA serve as reminders that both UMNO and PAS must not underestimate the Malays. Meaning both UMNO and PAS must realise that they are not indispensable.
Their recent statements opposing the renovation of a Hindu temple because to them, “it will affect Malaysia’s image to Arab Muslim tourists” is anything but smart.
Even Najib knows he cannot push the non Malays and non Muslims aside if he wants to sustain his future tenure as Prime Minister. Isma arrogantly thinks they can ride to power without the support of other communities in Malaysia.
Isma is smart in their role as defenders of Islam. You can’t see this. Try to look at things from the Muslim point of view.
A Religion does not need defending only the sensitivities of some of it’s adherents. Isma represents a specific point of Muslim view. Of course groups like Isma do not allow any other view of Islam but their own. We will only know if Isma is a credible (as in not proxies) when they pit their candidates against UMNO and PAS and the manner in which they campaign, till then I’ll just cruise their site and amuse myself with the lunatic fringe of the Establishment.
re: “Of course groups like Isma do not allow any other view of Islam but their own.”
That is why it is left to them to confront the evangelistas, which Umno and PAS have both signally failed to do. However the cure is scarier than the disease.
re: “We will only know if Isma is a credible (as in not proxies) when they pit their candidates against UMNO and PAS and the manner in which they campaign”
You can look at the three-cornered fights occasioned by Isma in GE13.
re: “till then I’ll just cruise their site and amuse myself with the lunatic fringe of the Establishment”
I have already favourited the Isma site on my Daily Read toolbar. Don’t make the mistake of underestimating them so dismissively.
Ok, Helen, fair enough response.
Re:”Don’t make the mistake of underestimating them so dismissively.”
I never make such mistakes. I just don’t think they are smart. I have met many smart extremist from all ends of the religious and ideological spectrum. This bunch ain’t smart. But then again look at the playing field….
You must be the smartest among them then?!
You must be the smartest the country ever had!!!
Smarter than them and most definitely smarter than you.
True. Isma is yet another extremist group that tries to scrape deeper at the bottom of the barrel than Perkasa.
The evangelistas deserve Isma.
Agree.. but.. akhirnya kita akan ‘ kalah jadi abu, menang jadi arang’
Their political wing Berjasa got no more than 10 percent of the Malay vote in Kapar. I would hardly consider that as representative of the Muslim viewpoint.
One out of 10 votes is amazingly good for an NGO debutant compared to 5 votes going to Pakatan and 4 votes going to BN in the rabid “Ini kali lah”, “we want a two-party system” ABU-ABU-ABU climate.
Even third party candidates like PSM’s Arutchelvan and HRP’s Uthayakumar couldn’t make the cut.
One out of ten is only among the Muslim voter demographic in that seat. That ratio is also the best performing Berjasa candidate.
If we take all voters into account, both Muslim and non Muslim, that amount drops to five percent.
It is certainly more than the standalone independent candidates, but far from the amounts needed to wrest power.
Hullo, Isma is an NGO and new to the political scene (as in standing for a seat). When did they ever say that they wanted to wrest power? That’s unrealistic.
However, they will be the next power brokers, e.g. P. Waythamoorthy of Hindraf – an NGO – was offered a Deputy Minister post.
Do you really think that AC-DC will trying to understand our worried about ISMA?
AC-DC does not possess the capacity to put himself in another person’s perspective. Trying to tell someone like him that, hey, other people don’t necessarily think identically to you is ibarat mencurah air ke atas daun keladi.
You can just ignore ISMA.. No problem at all coz ISMA is as you say only represent 10%.. Please sleep well..
However, Khalid has a plan B !
Huge pay hike coming up for S’gor MB, elected reps
Najib never had any plan. He relied on other people to decide.
