Photos that indicate Umno is losing it

The MCA’s Sunday activity — see HERE — is not fun and happenin’ like the DAP’s Sunday evangelical activities.

The MCA’s press statement is not about “peace and love”, “brothers and sisters”. Instead, it is boring stuff always warning about Islamic state — see All of DAP’s 38 MPs must be held accountable for PAS’ actions

The issue of “PAS’ actions” that the MCA is again bringing up today is about Kelantan enabling hudud — see HERE.

MCA is rejected by 90 percent of the Chinese and now the Chinese party is being rejected by Malay and Muslim supporters of the BN too.

Two sides of the mouth

ABOVE: Condolences to the MH370 passengers’ families but

DAP on the other hand has played the game so well that they are gaining support from all sides even though the only winners will be the party’s greedy Yang Berhormats.

In truth, yang menang (either the Muslims or the Christians) jadi arang, yang kalah (either the Christians or the Muslims) jadi abu.

How to be the winner when other folks are at the losing end?

The DAP evangelistas emerge winners because are the best at telling the Malays what they want to hear, and also the best at telling the Chinese and the Christians what they want to hear even though the different things that the various groups desire to hear are contradictory and in opposition.

double face

(1) The Selangor state exco is washing its hands off the issue of the bible confiscation but yet the Christian public has not asked the DAP members of the exco why they (DAP reps in Pakatan) are not protecting the religious rights of the minorities.

(2) Muslim supporters of PAS are angry at BN when they cannot get their hudud passed and accuse Umno of being the stumbling block.

The Chinese supporters of Pakatan are angry at BN when the hudud enforcement comes up, and accuse MCA of being Umno’s lapdog that allowed the religious rights of the minorities to be eroded.

comfortinglies

Pakatan’s Chinese and Christians blame BN but do not blame Pakatan even though Selangor and Kelantan are Pakatan states.

It is the Pakatan legislators who have control over their state law, but the Dapsters and the Pasters ignore this fact.

Meanwhile the Most Munafik Talam Dua Muka politikus in Malaysian history is playing both sides of the political fence and reaping the rewards of political support from sheeple belonging to the different flocks.

DAP is so successful because it manages to sucker both sides.

    “The Liberal theory of religion is homeopathic. (The more you water it down, the stronger it will become.)”
    [Sheikh Abdul Hakim Murad]

    Of course the efficacy of homeopathy as a science of healing is largely disputed by the medical establishment. Homeopathic remedies are prepared by repeatedly DILUTING a chosen substance in alcohol or distilled water, followed by forceful striking on an elastic body. Dilution usually continues well past the point where NO molecules of the Original Substance remain. Homeopaths select remedies by consulting reference books known as “repertories”, and by considering the totality of the patient’s symptoms, personal traits, physical and psychological state, and life history. How well Bibles play the role of such “repertoires” depends very much on the moral integrity and intellectual aptitude of the physician (a.k.a. evangelista) evaluating the condition of the patient (a.k.a. church member) doesn’t it?

    Pauline Christians should consider this:

    The Trinity = three alter egos; & St Paul was the first Westerner (to substitute God’s Oneness with contextual Plurality); & there is no real healing of the patient without a right diagnosis of his dis-ease, nor by applying one’s misconstrued concoction.

  2. Dear Helen:

    I love reading your posts. However, in recent times your vitriol at MCA has been increasingly noxious and it confuses me because on one hand you’re obviously hell-bent on exposing the truth about the phonies in DAP masquerading as ‘Bangsa Malaysia’, and yet, at the same time throwing an equal amount of bile at MCA.

    MCA has a new set of leaders and as with all things, time is needed to make the necessary changes. In saying that, changes in The Star leadership have already been made and that is a good sign. In time perhaps the editorial direction may change too, and I have already noticed some changes.

    I would rather see you addressing the constant bad – mouthing of our country by the Dapsters through their own thin lips or through the butt-holes of the RBA. There is something inherently wicked about these Malaysian Chinese who seem to revel in Malaysia’s discomfort in any arena, be it sporting, political or just about any area. They are the enemies of the Chinese, not MCA. MCA might not be politically clever or as clever as their counterparts in DAP, but they do appear kinder. I would choose MCA over DAP anytime just for this reason.

    1. Dear Gene,

      re: “MCA might not be politically clever or as clever as their counterparts in DAP, but they do appear kinder”

      I do agree that MCA is kinder and far less clever. Unfortunately, MCA is also politically dead. It holds 7-Eleven (seven Parliament seats and 11 DUN seats) and will not be able to retain these seats which are mostly in Malay-majority areas because the pro-govt Malays will no longer vote Chinese candidates come the next general election.

      By colluding with the tsunami of GE13 and allowing the media it owns to campaign for DAP, MCA signed its own death warrant.

      re: “MCA has a new set of leaders and as with all things, time is needed to make the necessary changes.”

      I salute Chew Mei Fun as an outstanding individual but I’ve no confidence that those above her (Liow, Wee, LCL) will be able to resuscitate the MCA. The MCA is as good as ‘dead’.

      The BN does not have the resources to spare to carry the MCA as a deadweight in GE14. If an Umno candidate is to be put in the Malay-majority seat, he has a fair chance of retaining the seat for the BN. If the MCA is going to defend the seat, sure lose. The MCA president’s Bentong constituency is a case in point. Itupun the last time Liow only won because the Pahang Menteri Besar’s maruah dan “telinga” were at stake.

      re: “In saying that, changes in The Star leadership have already been made and that is a good sign. In time perhaps the editorial direction may change too”

      The Star “improve” (i.e. stop stabbing BN in the back) under the new management of the Regina doppelganger? You must be kidding me.

      Which one is KJ’s secretary and which one is the J-Star group editor.

      null

      re: “I would rather see you addressing the constant bad-mouthing of our country by the Dapsters through their own thin lips”

      This is MCA’s job. Why don’t the MCA publicity unit do more? See, Kajang by-election: Umno working harder than MCA to promote Chew Mei Fun

      re: “I would rather see you addressing the constant bad-mouthing of our country by the Dapsters through … the butt-holes of the RBA.”

      I would like to see the MCA address their api dalam sekam first. See, ‘Are the MCA leaders aware of the Api Dalam Sekam in The Star?’ by Wee Choo Keong, here.

      re: “There is something inherently wicked about these Malaysian Chinese who seem to revel in Malaysia’s discomfort in any arena”

      Why did MCA allow them to take control? MCA has the billion-ringgit resources to address this problem that you mention but instead the media that it controls is subtly encouraging the phenomenon that you describe.

      re: “They are the enemies of the Chinese, not MCA.”

      I agree that MCA is not an enemy of the Chinese. In fact, I would say that MCA has carried out a superhuman feat in preserving Chinese interests, culture and education in Malaysia. Which other minority in the world has successfully retained their motherland identity in Malaysia like the Chinese have done here?

      Additionally, I acknowledge that Chew Mei Fun is a champion of the Chinese and kudos to her. However by colluding with the DAP, the MCA has made a tactical choice which is backfiring now.

      The J-Star had fully expected on 6 May 2013 to be celebrating the Pakatan win. They dealt the hardest blow that the could against Umno on May 5 but despite them doing their worst, Umno and BN remained standing.

      Then you saw the Baling Batu Sorok Tangan backpedalling by The J-Star pretending that no Chinese tsunami had occurred by that instead it was a “Malaysian tsunami” or an “urban tsunami”. Obviously MCA is not very clever because the MCA mouthpiece clearly appears to think that Malays are stupid tak nampak tangan yang baling batu itu tadi.

      re: “I would choose MCA over DAP anytime just for this reason.”

      I did on 5 May 2013. I ticked the Dacing on my ballot papers.

      However, it is my cold and hard electoral calculation that MCA is a hindrance to the BN retaining Putrajaya in GE14.

      Try to imagine what would have been Malaysia’s trajectory if the DAP had successfully formed the Selangor government in May 1969.

      It was a deadlock on 10 May 1969: The Alliance had 14 seats (Umno 12, MCA one, MIC one) and the opposition 14 (DAP 9, Gerakan 4, independent candidate one).

      DAP was within a whisker of becoming Selangor Menteri Besar. What kind of people are they? I think some of the DAP evangelistas are the kind of people who would be quite capable of smashing the head of a captive dog with a shovel and sinking their high heel into the eye socket of a kitten.

      1. Helen,

        Do you think there will be any changes in The Star’s editorial direction with the recent resignation of its executive vice-chairman Tan Sri Vincent Lee?

        http://www.theedgemalaysia.com/management/277999-star-publications-appoints-two-new-directors.html

        However, one looks at it, The Star’s revenue and profits are down and The Edge highlighted it quite well, whilst The Star’s report on Lee’s resignation was just a clinical press statement.

        http://www.thestar.com.my/Business/Business-News/2014/04/01/Lee-resigns-from-Star-Publications/

        Another question: If pro-BN Malay voters will no longer vote for an MCA candidate, who will they vote for then or will they abstain when faced with such a a choice?

        Of course yes, the option for the BN would then be to stand a candidate more acceptable to pro-BN Malays, and to use the language of Boolean logic, he or she would have to be NOT-MCA.

        Anyway, just as water seeks its own level and just as the number of competitive players in an industry reduce to a handful as the industry matures, it does not surprise me then, that members of electoral coalitions, such as in Malaysia, will likewise consolidate as smaller and weaker parties drop out, as the Gerakan and PPP have more or less done, with the MCA and perhaps even MIC following close behind.

        1. re: “Do you think there will be any changes in The Star’s editorial direction”

          Looking at the present J-Star editorial board, you know, I know lah. Try to ask the non-Chinese and non-Christians about the environment there now.

          Even leaving aside the top 10 percent editors and seniors, reflect on the remaining staff composition of the paper.

          If 90 percent of the Chinese electorate and a large percentage of the Christian voters are dead set against the BN, and the workforce of the Star Media Group comprises predominantly Chinese and Christians, then one can’t escape from the gene pool.

          re: “However, one looks at it, The Star’s revenue and profits are down”

          One way of looking at this development is that it might prompt The J to tilt even harder in the direction of the oppo ‘cos that’s their readership demography.

          re: “If pro-BN Malay voters will no longer vote for an MCA candidate, who will they vote for then or will they abstain when faced with such a choice?”

          We’ve already seen the early symptoms in Seremban where the Isma candidate put up a strong showing. They’re a third force (the Muslim NGOs) — seen as more “Islamic” than Umno but smart, professional and clean.

          The PAS allegiance is still up in the air, so it’s a bit difficult to project 4 years into the future. If PAS leaves Pakatan and stands on its own, I believe PAS will be able to draw more urban Malay votes from Umno.

          re: “Of course yes, the option for the BN would then be to stand a candidate more acceptable to pro-BN Malays, and to use the language of Boolean logic, he or she would have to be NOT-MCA.”

          Pragmatically, yes. Recall Wangsa Maju where Umno and MCA were tussling to have their choice stand.

          re: “it does not surprise me then, that members of electoral coalitions, such as in Malaysia, will likewise consolidate”

          You’re likely correct. It’s a pity that PSM is still cleaving to Pakatan.

          re: “as smaller and weaker parties drop out, as the Gerakan and PPP have more or less done, with the MCA and perhaps even MIC following close behind”

          In the peninsula, it will boil down to DAP vs Umno now that Anwar has been put out of circulation. This will become a reality if Umno can succeed in weaning away PAS by pivoting on the Allah and other Islam issues. More so if the Christian triumphalism does not cease and desist.

          1. Helen,

            re “Looking at the present J-Star editorial board,”

            First, what is “J-Star” in the context of Star Media Group?

            re “… you know, I know lah. Try to ask the non-Chinese and non-Christians about the environment there now.”

            I might be talking about a different thing here but my Indian friend who keeps in touch with his former colleagues at The Star told me that non-Chinese tend to be discriminated against at The Star, to the extent that even some Chinese there are upset by this shift away from the more race-blind The Star of old. He’s a nominal Roman Catholic.

            I’ve also heard from a Buddhist Chinese person there that there is favouritism shown by a manager who’s Lutheran towards fellow Lutherans, though I haven’t heard about how Christians of other denominations treat their non-Christian colleagues.

            re “Even leaving aside the top 10 percent editors and seniors, reflect on the remaining staff composition of the paper.”

            Not sure if I’m on the same track as you here but I know of some of my former colleagues who are senior journalists, having accepted so-called “mutual separation scheme” (MSS) and left, whilst The Star hires younger replacements whom they pay RM1,600 which is half of what the seniors they replaced got. I guess that as the saying goes, if one pays peanuts, one gets monkeys and I guess The Star is full of monkeys now.

            re “If 90 percent of the Chinese electorate and a large percentage of the Christian voters are dead set against the BN, and the workforce of the Star Media Group comprises predominantly Chinese and Christians, then one can’t escape from the gene pool.” “One way of looking at this development is that it might prompt The J to tilt even harder in the direction of the oppo ‘cos that’s their readership demography.”

            Yes. This is what I also suspect, since The Star’s continued survival depends upon giving its readers what they want to read, even if it goes against The Star’s owners.

            re: “We’ve already seen the early symptoms in Seremban where the Isma candidate put up a strong showing. They’re a third force (the Muslim NGOs) — seen as more “Islamic” than Umno but smart, professional and clean.”

            An unhealthy thing which resulted from the May 2013 elections was the ethnic-oriented division in voting allegiances, which has more or less put the majority of different ethnicities respectively in the government and opposition camps, when previously there were several ethnicities in both camps. Until the elections, reasonable pro-BN Malaysia tried to be accommodating towards the Chinese. whilst Najib was pushing 1Malaysia but since immediately after the elections, I felt a rapid shift in their attitude towards indifference, towards their own community or even hostility towards the Chinese.

            This has not gotten any better, especially judging by the opposing positions with regards the Malaysian government’s management of the unfortunate MH370 incident, adopted by politicians, media and supporters from different sides of the political divide

            re “The PAS allegiance is still up in the air, so it’s a bit difficult to project 4 years into the future. If PAS leaves Pakatan and stands on its own, I believe PAS will be able to draw more urban Malay votes from Umno.”

            Perhaps. Amongst Pakatan parties, I still retain a certain regard for PAS, even though I would not want to live under their hudud law, even if it did not affect me as a non-Muslim.

            re “You’re likely correct. It’s a pity that PSM is still cleaving to Pakatan.”

            It’s not surprising that PSM still cleaves to Pakatan. The site at http://www.whoaresuaram.com/ is inaccessible at this time but it contains a gallery of photos showing PSM leaders Dr. Nasir Hashim and Arul , along with Malaysiakini’s Premesh Chandran, PKR’s Tian Chua, Elizabeth Wong an others, which the site claims were or still are Suaram members

            Over 10 years ago, I attended a PSM public meeting where I was rather surprised by the politically electic mix of speakers, with Premesh Chandran of Malaysiakini as moderator. Premesh is not a socialist as far as I know.

            One speaker was a journalist at The Star, whose claim to left wing “legitimacy” is having met and interviewed Chin Peng in Haad Yai but this same person later supported the U.S.invasion of Iraq. So much for his “socialist” pretentions.

            Then there’s Suaram co-founder, Dr. Kua Kia Soong, with his class analysis of the compradore role of the Malay ruling elites, especially during and immediately after British colonial rule.

            However, if he’s so “socialist” and “anti-colonial”, how come his Suaram has openly admitted to having knowingly accepted funds from the likes of the National Endowment for Democracy and the Open Society Institute.

            As an anti-imperialist, I do not trust the likes of Suaram and other NGOs or civil society movements which knowingly receive funding from foreign so-called “non-governmental” organisations with close association with the U.S. State Department, possibly the CIA and others.

            Many such NGOsare funded directly or indirectly by Soros’ Open Society Institute, etc., which whilst opposed to neo-liberal capitalism and favourable to social welfare in words, in practice effectively serves the geo-strategic interests of western imperialism, globalisation and hegemony.

            BN and pro-BN people have accused Suaram of being an opposition front but I perceive it as the other way around – i.e. that at least some opposition parties, such as PSM and PKR as being Suaram fronts.

            re “In the peninsula, it will boil down to DAP vs Umno now that Anwar has been put out of circulation. This will become a reality if Umno can succeed in weaning away PAS by pivoting on the Allah and other Islam issues.”

            The PKR is rather fragmented already, so it would not be surprising if it just kind of fades away over time. Also, an independent socialist website called Socialist Malaysia characterised UMNO’s pivoting on the Islamic state issue back then as “An Islamic state of mind” to wean Muslim voter away from the Islamic state advocated by PAS.

            re “More so if the Christian triumphalism does not cease and desist.”

            It take two hands to clap and such Christians have allowed themselves to be drawn into playing their side in the divide and rule game, instead of acting with wisdom.

              The Jerusubang Star newsstand copy excluding Galaxie, Kuntum, Flavours, etc

              re: “non-Chinese tend to be discriminated against at The Star”

              Heh-heh, Dapsterism at play.

              re: “favouritism shown by a manager who’s Lutheran towards fellow Lutherans”

              Hallelujah

              re: “mutual separation scheme” (MSS) and left”

              Heard some Malay staff were keen and mulling on it too.

              re: “The Star’s continued survival depends upon giving its readers what they want to read, even if it goes against The Star’s owners”

              Those newbies being paid RM1.6k, are by inclination, scornful of the “running dog” (their opinion) MCA. So it’s hardly surprising for the inexorable momentum of the J-polity to go against The J-Star owners, from J-Wong right at the very top, down to the most junior cadets.

              re: “even hostility towards the Chinese”

              The anti-Chinese sentiments are becoming pronounced and increasingly widespread. If the Dapsters read in BM, and if the evangelistas had any conservative Malay friends (and not just their Bangster buddies), they would realise this. Unfortunately the Dapster-evangelistas are too self-referential and absorbed in navel-gazing and building their bridges in the air.

              re: “with regards the Malaysian government’s management of the unfortunate MH370 incident”

              This episode throws China into the stew and to be realistic, I believe that Beijing strikes a chord in both the Malaysian Chinese and the Malays — like I’ve blogged earlier about how Malaya risked being co-opted as the 19th province.

              The reactions of the Malaysian Chinese have shown up the latent tendencies which would have otherwise bypassed such overt notice had there not been this sudden MH370 incident.

              re: “hudud law, even if it did not affect me as a non-Muslim”

              It will affect everybody. Dozens of Christians have been passed the death sentence in Pakistan for blasphemy. Then there is the matter of a non-Muslim’s testimony not being accepted by the court — ref. some Saudi cases involving their foreign labour.

              re: “Premesh is not a socialist as far as I know”

              He’s done well to build up MK‘s capital (and now they’ve got their own building). So he’s a bona fide capitalist.

              re: “One speaker was a journalist at The Star, whose claim to left wing “legitimacy” is having met and interviewed Chin Peng in Haad Yai but this same person later supported the U.S.invasion of Iraq. So much for his “socialist” pretentions.”

              You’re the one who is the inveterate leftie lah ,)

              re: “how come his Suaram has openly admitted to having knowingly accepted funds from the likes of the National Endowment for Democracy and the Open Society Institute”

              KKS’s book on May 13 attempts to posit that the race riots was wholly a class struggle and nothing at all to do with ethnicity. The Firsters have thoroughly bought into his thesis.

              re: “BN and pro-BN people have accused Suaram of being an opposition front but I perceive it as the other way around – i.e. that at least some opposition parties, such as PSM and PKR as being Suaram fronts.”

              Interesting. We should keep this theory on our radar.

              re: “It take two hands to clap and such Christians have allowed themselves to be drawn into playing their side in the divide and rule game, instead of acting with wisdom.”

              Something for you to chew on: These Jerusubang Christians love to posture, and they go way overboard in their showboating of kumbayah, building bridges. The more they preach “peace and love”, the more their (real self) actions are at odds with their lip service.

              The truth of the matter is that the Christians are too full of hate for the Muslims – think of the American Bible Belt and their support for bombing Iraq back to the Stone Age – and over here in Malaysia, the Christian Chinese are too resentful of the Malays so much so that acquiring wisdom is too much of a tall order.

              A full-blown communal conflagration was able to be kept at bay when MCA (with its Buddhist strains) still managed to exert some moderating influence over the Chinese. With the MCA sunk, there is no force to temper the Chinese behaviour anymore.

              You will notice that the socio-cultural conflict has become increasingly acute in tandem with the rise and rise of the DAP evangelistas. This is a new factor in Malaysian politics that wasn’t there before.

              Everywhere around the world the Muslims and Christians are killing each other (Armenian genocide, exodus of Christians from Turkey, Coptic Christians from Egypt, the periodic eruptions in Lebanon, etc). The ascendency of our very own DAP evangelistas is merely bringing us closer to the global trend.

              1. re “The Jerusubang Star newsstand copy excluding Galaxie, Kuntum, Flavours, etc”

                A Google search on “Jerusubang Star” yield’s nothing official, except by you, so I guess you coined the trem “Jerusubang” from Jerusalem + Subang Jaya,

                However, why this set of Star Publication’s mediocre magazines which I don’t even look at, rather than the main paper?

                re “KKS’s book on May 13 attempts to posit that the race riots was wholly a class struggle and nothing at all to do with ethnicity.”

                I don’t deny that at times, issues of race, religion, gender, sexual orientation, etc. are indeed exploited by the ruling capitalist class to drive a wedge between proletarians of different ethnicities and nationalities especially at times of deep crisis in the capitalist economic system but such conclusion don’t always apply dogma-fashion, which is what lots of western far leftists, especially from a middle class background tend to allege dogmatically.

                Class struggle often also occurs between different factions within the capitalist class which is very much the case as in Malaysia, and not always between in capitalists versus workers struggle.

                Likewise, the battle between the Aquinos and the Marcoses in the Philippines was a conflict between rich and powerful families who exploit the poor, basically a battle between feudal warlords within a western democratic framework.

                The interesting thing about ethnicity, nationality, gender and sexual orientation is that it cuts across economic class lines identified by Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, etc., and capitalists of any race, nationality, gender or sexual orientation can exploit and oppress workers just the same.

                “Leftists” like KK appear to be influenced by the tendency of western middle class far left groups and parties which arose amongst the student millieu in the 1960s, which unlike their predecessors in the 1920s and 1930s, they have not managed to establish strong links with the core constituency – i.e. the workers, so resort to appealing to ethnic and national minorities amongst immigrants, women and LGBT, whom they regard as the most exloited section of the working class, hence the most militant.

                However, whilst the anti-racist and anti-fascist struggle is an important part of the struggle between workers and capitalists, it is not the only one and if they have the kind of strong links with the core of the working class, there would not be the kind of passivity of exploited workers in the west in the face of capitalist austerity measures, super exploitation, unemployment and under employment today, compared to the kind of worker militancy in the west during the capitalist economic crisis of the 1930s.

                The only western countries where such worker militancy still exists are in poorer souther European countries such as Greece, Spain and Portugal, where the original communist parties are still relatively strong.

                However, in much of Asia, Africa and Latin America, most communist led struggles began as national liberation struggles as part one of the two stage struggle for socialism, which in many countries, did not continue to the second stage.

                For example, just look at Vietnam where communist symbols on the street co-exist with the most blatant symbols of capitalist multinationals and capitalist consumerism, though that could be put down to economic expediency, given that many of these countries lack the technological and industrial base – i.e the material conditions upon which a viable socialist society depends.

                For about 10 years shortly after the Russian Revolution, the Soviet Union under Lenin had to institute a policy called the New Economic Policy, where it allowed some degree of capitalism and capitalist foreign investment to build up its industry, including its oil industry, and one American oil company, Occidental Petroleum played a major part in the Soviet Union during this period, and its founder, Dr. Armand Hammer, a Russian Jew migrated to the U.S., was even awarded the Order of Lenin, the Soviet version of a Tan Sri or a Tun.

                However, no self-respecting leftists or anti-imperialist would flirt with the likes of the National Endowment for Democracy, Open Society Institute, etc.

                re “The truth of the matter is that the Christians are too full of hate for the Muslims – think of the American Bible Belt and their support for bombing Iraq back to the Stone Age.”

                One good outcome of the “Allah” controversy is that I’ve stopped getting e-mails from Christians saying that “Allah is a pagan moon god”.

                Going further, I’ve been researching the history of the different religions which arose in the Middle East and the Mediterranean and have concluded that they are mostly tribally and nationally based, and the conflict between their respective versions of God are reflective of their earthly conflicts with each other.

                For example the Moses story contains elements of conflict between the god of the Israelites versus the god of the Egyptians.

                Likewise, even within the three Abrahamic faiths – i.e. Judaism, Chirtianity and Islam, there’s disagreement and conflict, with each other over their different versions and interpretations of the same supreme god.

                For example, talking to Christians, I get the impression that they regard the god of the Old Testament (god of the Jews) to be different from the god of the New Testament (god of the Christians), even though the Old and New Testaments are part of the same Christian Bible.

                Judaism regards Satan (ha-satan) as an angel of god who’s task is to test each person’s resolve to stay the right course, whilst Christians have elevated Satan near to an anti-god, whose an adversary of the supreme god who created him.

                Jews regard Jesus as a heretic to Judaism, much like Roman Catholics regard Martin Luther.

                You should check out a You Tube channel called Jews For Judaism for some very informative videos by a Jewish rabbi on the differences between Judaism and Christianity.

                I also have been researching early Christianity – i.e. the Gnostics and the Essenes, in the first 300 years after Christ’s death, before Emperor Constantine of Rome made Christianity the official religion of Rome and convened the Counci of Nicea in 325.

                There are many similarities between early Christianity and Hinduism & Buddhism.

                Anyway, these inter-religious and inter-denominational conflicts in the Middle East and Mediterranean have continied until today and explian the never ending conflicts going on, especially in the Middle East, which no doubt are being exploited by outside powers to serve their geo-strategic interests in the region.

                Thankfully, such conflicts do not exist to such intensity between Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, etc., which are generally more inclusive faiths or philosophies.

                  The interesting thing about ethnicity, nationality, gender and sexual orientation is that it cuts across economic class lines identified by Marx, Engels, Lenin, Stalin, Mao, etc., and capitalists of any race, nationality, gender or sexual orientation can exploit and oppress workers just the same.

                  To put it in our political context, I’ve been saying quite simply that while the MCA still had some influence over the Chinese, outright confrontation with the Malays (read: Muslims) has been averted. However with 90 percent of the Chinese in thrall to the DAP evangelista leadership, a religious conflict is unavoidable.

  3. Helen, looking at Hannah Yeoh’s picture that resembles the chameleon and macam nak gaduh punya stance, do you think that she’s a fitting candidate to arm wrestle Michele Obama?

    1. Agree that HY looks like a Dapster Gangster but Michelle has the advantage of height.

      null

  4. No difference between MCA and DAP…both are against the Hudud.

    http://m.malaysiakini.com/news/259013

    Peguam kanan Karpal Singh memberi amaran bahawa Parlimen tidak boleh membiarkan usul yang tidak mengikut undang-undang dikemukakan untuk membolehkan kerajaan Kelantan menguatkuasa hudud.

    mereka bersatu bila menentang Islam, hanya melayu yg asyik berpecah bila pertahan Islam.

    1. Are you sure that the tudung-wearing Puan Speaker DAP is against hudud?

      Those Pak Lebai who invite her into their homes to makan-makan appear to believe that she has been granted hidayah.

      1. Helen…. ini perempuan mana boleh terima hudud…
        sekalipun dia pakai tudung, sekalipun dia dikatakan sudah menerima hidayah…. itu cuma cakap-cakap politik yang lebih kepada ‘menjual air-liur untuk mendapatkan undi.

        Kita tengok apa akan jadi apabila kerajaan PAS Kelantan membentangkan usul hudud di Parlimen. Khir Baharom sudah menyatakan akan menyokong…. kita lihat apa kata DAP…. sebab suara MCA sudah tidak kedengaran dalam parlimen.

        Kiranya DAP tidak menyokong maka Pak lebai akan terkebil-kebil sebab sudah tertelan air liur DAP!

        Kiranya DAP menyokong… maka semakin yakinlah rakyat melayu islam negara ini bahawa dengan bersatu usul hudud boleh dijayakan! dengan bersatu, melayu-islam akan menjadi kuat dan kaum lain akan kena ikut!

        Anda fikir, adakah benar DAP akan menyokong?

        1. re: “Anda fikir, adakah benar DAP akan menyokong?”

          Tu yang kita kena tanya kat YB-YB evangelista.

          1. Re Tu yang kita kena tanya kat YB-YB evangelista.

            Saya pasti kalau dengan menyokong usul agar Hudud dilaksanakan di Kelantan dapat mengaut keuntungan politik, DAP akan sokong.

            Mereka ni haiwan politik, macam Nuar. Akan buat apa-apa sahaja untuk kepentingan politik.

            Kita harus tanya orang Cina yang sokong DAP, kalau DAP sokong Hudud, apakah mereka akan sokong DAP ?

          2. Dap ini…

            1. kalau disokongnya Hudud…. pastinya PAS akan berbangga kerana apa yang dikatakan PAS sebelum ini bahawa DAP tidak menolak hudud menjadi kenyataan. Akan tetapi, DAP harus bersedia untuk menerima kenyataan bahawa orang cina dan india yang anti hudud akan menolak mereka. pada masa sama, UMNO aka BN akan menerima undi lebih jugak sebab UMNO melalui jamil khir baharom sudah terang kata akan sokong.

            2. kalau tidak disokongnya Hudud…. apakah DAP sudah bersedia kepada keluarnya PAS dari Pakatan?

            saya fikir DAP amat berharap agar saranan Karpal supaya hudud tidak diusulkan ke parlimen diterima PAS… sebab dalam isu ini tiada jalan untuk chameleon DAP untuk menukar warna…..!

        2. Re Kiranya DAP menyokong… maka semakin yakinlah rakyat melayu islam negara ini bahawa dengan bersatu usul hudud boleh dijayakan! dengan bersatu, melayu-islam akan menjadi kuat dan kaum lain akan kena ikut!

          Mana Karpal ? Kit Siang kan dari dahulu lagi kata dia tak akan setuju, mana dia sekarang ?

            1. Re Bukankah Karpal dilucutkan pangkat MP kerana bersabit kesalahan menghasut dengan dikenakan denda melebihi RM2,000, yang dengan secara automatiknya memberi kesan si pesalah tidak lagi layak memegang jawatan?

              Biarpun begitu, dia masih lagi boleh bersuara. Yang ni, lesap, dah tak jumpa. Kan dia oranf kuat DAP.

              Persoalan sekarang, adakah Karpal setuju atau tidak ?

                1. I doubt he could do much. His is the lone voice while the crooks in his party are working behind the scenes to make sure that the Islamic code is implemented to further their sinister agenda for this country.

                  The Chinese are deliberately being misled into believing that they have nothing to fear when in fact, they are the ones with the most to lose, the most at stake if, when this code is implemented.

                  Take this as one example. If a Chinese lady is sexually violated by a Muslim man, where is the recourse for justice for this Chinese lady? The Religious court or the Civil court? Yet they are deliberately being misled not just by the DAP but also by Pas.

                  Just look at comments by Malays on opposition websites like Malaysiakini telling the Chinese that they have nothing to fear, that this is for Malays, for Muslims. This is all nonsense. The effects on non Muslims are far greater. I hope you do highlight this in your next article.

                  1. re: “I hope you do highlight this in your next article.”

                    Nudging me, huh?

                    Well, I say that if the nons are so brainwashed that they’re now – under the DAP’s divine guidance – willing to believe hudud will have no repercussions on them, then they’ve truly been lobotomized to a degree where any attempt to show them reason is futile.

                    They’ve made their bed with the DAP, let them lie in it. The evangelistas will be the first to be punished for blasphemy over their attempt to appropriate the ‘Allah’ word.

                    The hudud punishment for blasphemy is death, I don’t mind reminding the Dapsters who are being led by the snout by their demigods who peddle the intoxicating Holy Water.

  5. More like Malays are losing it.

    Question running through my mind is, how are the Pakatan supporting non Muslim voters really viewing their Malay allies anyway?

    They have no grounds to be angry at MCA IMO, considering they are in a pact with PAS, the ones using hudud as their political capital anyway, not UMNO or MCA.

    1. May I politely suggest that you pick a pseudonym … anon is too generic. Thanks.

      re: “how are the Pakatan supporting non Muslim voters really viewing their Malay allies anyway?”

      Not realistically. The Chinese oppo supporters are living in their own bubble, like how they accuse the Malays as being corrupt but conveniently forget that for corruption to take place it requires both giver and taker.

      So I’d say that the Dapsters are viewing the Pasters through their own construct and not having a realistic take on the PAS psyche.

      For the Dapster-evangelistas, PAS is Mujahid Yusof Rawa, Nizar Jamaluddin and Khalid Samad. They forget that the highest decision-making body in PAS is the Majlis Syura. They also forget that the PAS grassroots respect their conservative ulama leadership and that the PAS Youth remain rather radical (such as the charismatic Nik Abduh).

      In other words, the Chinese syok sendiri in their own ethnic silos without a realistic idea about the rest of (the non-Chinese) Malaysia.

      1. Re In other words, the Chinese syok sendiri in their own ethnic silos without a realistic idea about the rest of (the non-Chinese) Malaysia.

        But in their world, they think differently. In the back of their minds, they truly believe that the things that they want are also the things that other, non Chinese want. In their perversion, they tell the other non Chinese that what’s good for the Chinese is also good for the non Chinese.

        1. re: “they tell the other non Chinese that what’s good for the Chinese is also good for the non Chinese”

          It works both ways. Their trendsetters like Madame Speaker, MP ‘Insya Allah’ Serdang and other evangelista idealogues similarly tell the Chinese that what’s good for the non-Chinese (such as wearing tudung, mengucap “Insya Allah”, “For Allah’s sake”, “Oh My Allah”) is also good for the Chinese.

          1. May I suggest that you do a survey on :

            “How many of you think Madame Speaker supports Hudud ?”

            I m curious as to how many people will click on the yes button.

            Just a suggestion. Up to you to decide.
