Myanmar’s intolerant Buddhist monks are berated in Wong Chun Wai’s J-Star column today.
Against the backdrop of “ultra nationalist” and “religious extremist” groups that “always fight in the name of country, race and religion”, certain religious figures in conservative societies are able to “get away with the most demonic crimes”, writes the J-Star CEO.
At the intergovernmental meeting in Bangkok yesterday on the boat people crisis, Htin Lynn, Ministry of Foreign Affairs Myanmar director-general told off the UNHCR for politicizing his country’s internal issues.
Htin Lynn was responding to a call for Myanmar to grant citizenship to its Muslim minority – the 1.3 million Rohingya of whom many are stateless – made by the UN’s Asst. High Commissioner for Refugees (Protection). Continue reading “Fear the crescent, fear the cross”→
This guy is a snake-tongued hypocritical politician. Look at what he said previously…
PETALING JAYA: Penang Deputy Chief Minister P Ramasamy hopes that the Indonesian government will not sent back the 89 Tamil refugees from Sri Lanka who were detained in Indonesia. Continue reading “From the DAP politician who said bring on May 13”→
DAP evangelistas must be the world’s most judgmental people. They’re always sitting on their high horses and judging everybody. They even play judge and jury to convict the entire country in the court of public opinion.
The DAP-led government wants the boat people to be placed on federal land and proposes that the camp be in a big state like Pahang, according to J-Star – the paper seen by some as the de facto DAP mouthpiece.Continue reading “Papa dan Mama munafik”→
“Our government seems quite happy to let people die of starvation and exposure out in the open sea because apparently that’s what we Malaysians want,” Marina Mahathir wrote in her J–Star column on Thursday.
Malay Mail columnist cum LGBT activist Azrul Mohd Khalib wrote,
“There are malnourished, sick, pregnant and dying adults and children on those boats. Where is our compassion for our fellow human beings?” as well as “… pregnant women, children and infants to suffer and die on those fishing boats stranded and adrift for months at sea”.
Marina Mahathir too mentioned “pregnant women” and the “old and sick” on the boats.
“Najib has Pemandu, Talent Corp, Teraju, UKAS (Public-Private Partnership Unit), and many other new agencies which compete for influence with EPU. In particular, Pemandu has an unjustifiably huge budget to implement the various alphabet soups like NKRAs, NKEAs.” – Liew Chin Tong
In the mind of the ordinary rakyat, what we call the “government” usually equals the prime minister and his cabinet.
The government however further comprises “the entire federal public service from the highest to the lowest, including of course the police force and the armed forces”, according to Tun Mohamed Suffian Hashim, the late Lord President.
“The Home Ministry (Deputy Home Minister Wan Junaidi Jaafar) has said that Malaysia will push back the Rohingya that have arrived in the trawlers. We are waiting to see if Najib has the gumption to stand by his government’s decision,” I posted yesterday.
Only last week (May 14), Wan Junaidi was quoted by Reuters as saying, “I don’t see why we are under pressure. We are doing what we think we should do. We have to consider what our people want to see us doing. They don’t want to see immigrants come into our country”.Continue reading “Najib gomen caves in to pressure”→
The Council of Churches Malaysia is deeply concerned over the plight of the Rohingya boat people and wants the government to stop its push back of them. “It is inhumane to push their flimsy boats back into the open sea,” the Council chided.
Two headless torsos, four legs, two heads, two hands and an arm had been found in Penang among the recovered body parts of 52 murder victims last year. Among the dead, 18 were identified as Myanmar nationals.
Nine men – Bilal, Mohd Rafik, Habibullah, Mohd Rafi, Yassin, Hussain, Maung Maung, Ali and Hafiz – were charged in the Penang magistrate’s court with the killing their Buddhist countrymen.
“Never let it be said that people can’t learn from history. Dapsters have learned their lesson. They got smart. See how they are attacking Umno and BN with their ABU and UBAH. They keep their thoughts on the Malay race itself on the quiet, although of course once in a while they do surface.
“With all the problems that Umno is facing now, you can see how fragmented the Malays are. So maybe we will not come to another May 13 if BN loses and I’m sure the Dapsters have learned how to make the Malays toe the line.”
“The Malay psyche appears simple in essence and yet it is complex in fathoming. A non-Malay, who has only a superficial relationship with a Malay, can easily fall into the trap of taking the Malay for granted.” – Dr Ismail Noor and Muhammad Azaham Wahab (The Malays Par Excellence … Warts and All, p.19)
So we can expect seven out of every 10 Chinese in the country to be able to speak Malaysia’s national language as their native tongue (just like the ethnic Chinese in Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines do their respective country’s native language) and also be willing to send their children to National School.
