Lim Kit Siang capitalized on Jais’ return of the confiscated ‘Allah’ Bibles by urging moderation in the mould of Najib Razak’s Global Movement of Moderates – CEO Saifuddin Abdullah and board trustee Wong Chun Wai (pix below).
Only for Sabah and Sarawak, not Selangor
Mais says that the ‘Allah’ Bibles have been returned with the strict condition that they are forbidden from distribution in Selangor.
Council chairman Mohamad Adzib Mohd Isa says the ‘Allah’ Bibles are only for use by Christians in Sarawak. He was reported by The J-Star today as saying that the Selangor Sultan hopes ‘Allah’ Bibles will no longer be distributed in HRH’s state.
The Bibles were handed over to the Anglican Bishop of Kuching rather than to the Bible Society of Malaysia (BSM) from whose premises they were seized.

“Jais can kick down the door of the church”
“they could kick down the door [of your home]”
Called “thugs” and “bullies” too
The screams of “racist”, “extremist”, “religious bigot” and hate-spewing “ignoramuses” directed at a segment of the Malaysian population have been rising to a crescendo.
Now this segment of the Malaysian population are being branded as “thugs” too who are viciously bullying the Lambs of Gods.
The question of who is bullying whom should be examined in the context of who is stealing from whom, and who is breaking the law.
Why are the Christians so insistent on using the ‘Allah’ word? Why are the evangelistas unable to allay widespread fear and suspicion that they are doing dakwah on the Malays?
Meant for Sabah or Selangor?
Could the evangelical Christian missionary have been trying to offload ‘Allah’ materials in Selangor?
I’m referring to Maklin Masiau. He is a pastor cum politician … or if you will … politician cum pastor.
In the last general election, Maklin had contested the Sabah state seat of Pitas (see box below) under Jeffrey Kitingan’s STAR party and was the strongest challenger to the Umno incumbent.
Customs check was according to SOP
On Oct 25, Maklin had with him a consignment of books and CDs containing the word “Allah” which was seized by Customs at the low-cost carrier terminal klia2. He was arriving from Medan, Indonesia on his way to Kota Kinabalu.
It is within their scope of duty for the Customs officers to check suspicious luggage or baggage and issue a detention order.
Weighing in on the matter, however, Sarawak PKR chief Baru Bian alleged that the seizure of Maklin’s Christian materials amounted to “a calculated intimidation” by the authorities.
What aroused the suspicion of the authorities was the huge volume that Maklin was personally carrying with him – 574 books (133 titles) and 419 CDs. And the fact that he checked out his six bulky boxes of “Allah”-Christian material at the transit point in Sepang, Selangor.
“Usually, for items on transit, the baggage will be transferred into the aircraft directly without the need to bring them into the main terminal,” said a Home Ministry statement on Nov 1.
A Home Ministry official was also reported as saying that the materials were detained because Maklin did not have an import permit to bring in foreign publications in such a large quantity.
Why want to transfer cargo during transit?
Maklin had chosen the AirAsia travel option requiring him to re-check in his huge consignment. He could have flown MAS where his cargo, meant for the Christmas season, would have been sent direct to Kota Kinabalu.
Minister in the Prime Minister’s Department Joseph Kurup (pix above) arranged for the return of the materials to Maklin on Nov 6. Kurup is also the cabinet minister in charge of the NUCC.
The Yahudi Yeohs are adamant in aggressively downplaying the tudung image sported by the DAP’s Christian politicians who employ the Occupy Mosque tactic.
To any ordinary man on the street, Hannah Yeoh’s Muslimah (pix) appearance is very fishy. Yet PAS people are the ones giving the DAP evangelista politicians a free pass to the masjid dan surau.
Truly PAS has been complicit in all of this, including its decision to aid and abet the Christians in the latter’s claim that Allah has a Son and this Son is born of a woman; that this Son is Himself God and the three godheads of Father, Son and Holy Spirit are a Trinity that is Allah.
