Bosnia held its election earlier this week on Sunday (Oct 7). It was a fractious polls predicated on race and religion.
In its aftermath, foreign policy experts are now expecting Bosnia’s Christian half, Republika Srpska, to be all the closer to secession. See Al–Jazeera Oct 9 story ‘Will Milorad Dodik break up Bosnia?’

Pope Francis yesterday slammed Donald Trump, saying “a person who thinks only about building walls… and not of building bridges, is not Christian”. The pontiff was referring to the wall that Trump wants to build to keep out illegal Mexican immigrants from the USA.
The 37-second video below is the presidential candidate’s response to the Pope whom Trump described as “a very political person”. It’s true that the Vatican has been increasingly political under the present pontiff. Continue reading “Pope Francis gets political with Donald Trump”
Below is the image that emerged on a glass window of the SJMC hospital in November 2012.

Sang Nila Utama and the Lion of Judah
Malaysia has one of the most diverse populations on earth – a product largely of colonial policy, but also of a strategic location between a number of ethno-cultural and religious blocs.
There are few countries in the world where the pattern of ethnic and religious belonging is as complex as it is in Malaysia. Continue reading “Militant evangelistas and their ubah agenda”
The Christians always like to say that they love their enemies and will even pray for those who persecute them.
It looks like some of Hannah Yeoh’s loving-her-enemies Christian charity has rubbed off on her best buddy Nurul Izzah.

Following the attack on Paris, more than half of American Governors are opposing the Obama administration’s attempt to settle Syrian refugees in their states.

I do not believe in presenting your right cheek also to be slapped if someone slapped you on your left cheek. This piece of self-defeating advice to ‘turn the other cheek’ was invented by sneaky Christians to fool suckers.
When the victim says “biarlah” although his left cheek is hurting after being smacked, then his gullible attempt at bersangka baik will only give the calculative bully an opportunity smack him again and again – dush, dush!
Pacifism is destructive to the victim and advantageous to the bully. Continue reading “#paris – Conquistadors are terrorists too”
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”
The native Burmese are very hostile to the Rohingya while the Myanmar government takes a hardline position to the extent of refusing to recognize the minority Muslim group as a legitimate ethnicity.
So basically, if Malaysia and any other host country is willing to take the Rohingya, then Myanmar really wouldn’t mind exporting the whole lot of them. Continue reading “Why exodus of one million Rohingya refugees is a real possibility”
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.

It was Anwar Ibrahim who empowered the evangelistas. However with ketum now in jail, the beleaguered Islamists can start to lift the seige.
With this Malay protector of the evangelical Christians out of the picture, besieged Muslims can also begin the process of reclaiming their kalimah Allah.
Malays need to beat back the evangelistas. Continue reading “Niat murtadkan Melayu: Christians should stop pretending already”
The Malaysian Consultative Council of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism and Taoism appears to believe the faith of non-Muslims is so fragile (begitu rapuh iman kami) that just by being exposed to the Quran, we will convert to Islam.
The MCCBCHST also seems to think that non-Muslims are easily confused and merely by reading a Quran, our original religious beliefs will be compromised (kami dipesongkan akidah).
