All one needs to do to win over the Malays is to convert to Islam, have a Malay name, start speaking impeccable Malay and act according to their customs and walla! one can be one of them. But what the Malays forget is that these kind of individuals will do the same if some other race is in power. Therefore simply put, they are nothing but opportunist. If the Malays support this kind of individuals, who are just too shy to admit their roots, then it will be a detriment to the advancement of the Malays because all it would take for the non is to convert and he can then even become the PM because he would then have that ever so important "bin" in his name. Just think of what would happen to the Malays if the Bangladeshis, Pakistanis, Nepalis, Africans and all other who are not of Malay race do the same? The malays will eventually go back to square one " iaitu balik ke dalam belunggu penjajah". That is the reason why Malaysia is a haven to many but as usual we the locals don't realize it.

I am an educationist and its a sheer pity that learned people like Dr. Tee giving a biased comment about race and religion. When I was trained to be a educationist, my lecturers were malays as well as non malays and in each lectures, we were reminded that our duty as an educator is to impart knowledge without any reference to colour or religion. Here we have a "PhD scholar" uttering nothing but garbage. And not only that, he is kicking the very ladder he came into the world - that is as a chinese. Perhaps in Malaysia we can accept criticisms levelled against the non muslims but not the other way round. And interestingly, in my years as an educator, I always find the converts barking more of their conversations be it among the muslims or the christians. Perhaps Dr.Tee will be applauded among the Malays but you are still a chinese by birth. May Allah guide and show you the rightful path of spreading harmony and tolerance among the humans. Grow up Dr.Tee.

u said "the special position of the Malay is respected". a one-liner on this important aspect of the discussion is barely sufficient. why don't u elaborate on this special position vis-a-vis the constitution, in what way it is being respected and whether the non-malays are aware that the malays have some certain rights. this is important because some malays think this special position is being threatened by non-malays who are pushing for equality.

Ridhuan Tee has to be more Malay than a Malay to be accepted as "one of them". He doesn't grasp the concept of being "one of us". Us, as in Malaysians. But frankly, he is deluded to think that Malays accept him. He's being used as a pawn in the overall scheme of things. Just that he's not aware of it yet.

This guy (I can't even mention his name) is full venoms and he's an educationalist? God help our children. He seems to think that being Chinese is a disease or something, forgetting that he's one. What a despicable character, trying to kiss the Malays' feet like they needed him. Malays should steer clear of characters like him. He will only bring them bad karma and his gutter.

Terms like Ketuanan Melayu, Malay special rights, Bumiputra and social contract are unknown at independence and not found in the constitution. They were invented by Umno politicians in the 1980's to justify their racist implementation of the NEP. With the shrinking non-Malay population there will be another classification in future - Umnoputra - to distinguish bumiputras who are more privileged than others.

Malaysian's comments re: Stolen jet engines: Gov't to tell all next month

The Deputy Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Ahmad Maslan made a laughable comment regarding the 2 stolen (he called ite two missing) RMAF F-5E jet engines, that it would be explained to the people next month. Want to know what Malaysians think of that ludicrous statement? Here are the comments from Malaysiakini: Stolen jet engines: Gov't to tell all next month:

Government to tell all? Really? Well, the government should have told all it knew about this scam long ago, especially since it discovered the theft more than a year ago and claims to have been investigating the incident for many months now. The theft was huge (in terms of value and the sheer logistics used in moving the stolen goods out of Malaysia) and it happened in a high-profile and highly sensitive security environment (the armed forces). If the government is really serious about revealing all it knows, then it should move with the urgency the issue warrants and clearly show its determination to nail all the culprits. And while we wait to hear the whole story from the government, we should not be surprised if it comes up with its typical ‘excuse’ later on to say that it cannot reveal all because that will jeopardise investigations and/or court proceedings (that is, if and when all the people involved are finally charged).

Hello Brudder Deputy Minister, You need one month to come up with some cerita donggeng about missing engines? This time you will say the engines committed suicide from the 10th floor and were disposed. All records of the Government belong to the people and should be readily available at short notice to the people anytime unless you have a lot to hide and hoodwink the rakyat. Like Mahacon who said Anwar punched himself when he was arrested.

Are you sure that one month is enough time for the BN/UMNO to come up with a really credible, believable and acceptable reason for the missing jet engines and why BN parliamentarians were missing in action on the 14th Dec. I would advise the UMNO boys to appoint a new spin doctor to come with believable excuses/reasons that are palatable to the rakyat. The rakyat are not DUMB so please don't get a dumb spin doctor to give us stories lah!

by mangodurian - 3 hours ago
Yeah, I can see the explanation ... "Urm .. yes para Rakyat yang senang faham, you see there were no stolen engines. The F-5E are old junk from the 70's and we've already retired them. We already had plans to flog them off on eBay and BTW, RM50M each is the price for new. Nowadays you can get them from eBay for less than RM100k. So it is not true that we lost RM100M worth of equipment. What was *missing* however are the documentations from PayPal about the sale, so we have our hush-hush military Polis looking into this. The matter does not arise, and anyone else commenting about this may be liable to OSA action."

Henry Basil, thanks for enlightening me and others, you have made us realise that ya betul lah - BN component parties have been silent on this serious issue. Not even a word from MCA Ong Tee Keat (nickname Big Mouth), MIC Semivalue (nickname I've not been informed), Gerakan's Koh Tsu Koon (nickname Mr.Good). It shows that UMNO is the boss in BN, others are servants to protect their rice bowls, not people interest and welfare. BN is a bunch of white collar thiefs. Kick BN out.

It is a confirmed fact that the jet engines were stolen from the TUDM base. Who else is repsonsible, besides the perperators of this theft? Why was this not revealed earlier to the people? Why didn't the Auditor-General's last report include this item missing in its audit? Why was a police report not lodged as soon as it was discovered missing? Why is it taking so long for the police to investigate and bring to book those involved? So many questions but sadly not enough answers. What is the protocol for such a situation and what action is being taken in the recovery of the 2 stolen engines? Don't expect the people to provide the answers, this is the job of the government, that we elected. A blunder took place, and it is time to answer the questions the rakyat is asking.

I am yet to hear a comment from any of the other component parties in BN. This is proof that all the chinese,indians,ibans,dayaks,kadasans,etc who are members of BN are comfortable with the missing jet engine,which translates to endorsing corruption.This is why all these corruption continues unabated and the time is right to stem out BN as it is corrupt.Malaysians, whether you are malay,chinese,indian,others speak up and reject corruption by voting opposition at any by election or next GE.

Malaysia must allow private schools to use English

Malaysiakini: Gov't has no hand in Astro rates: "Deputy Information Communications and Culture minister Joseph Salang Gandum said the paid services provided by Astro were not basic communications service but rather a choice made by subscribers to have a choice of more channels"

Also Mahathir said the government was exposing Malaysia to peril by reversing the policy of teaching maths and science in English. “English is the language of the Knowledge Age. Countries which do not master English will not only be left behind but risk being colonised either directly or indirectly.” Source: Dr M: Forsaking English is the nation’s folly.

Lots of very concerned Malaysian parents are desperate for good schools and desperate for their children to master English and are despondent over the sorry states of our Sekolah Kebangsaan (National Schools). English is now the International Language whether we like it or not, the language of commerce, language for science and technology and anybody and any nation must master English to be able to compete not only nationally but also globally. Why must our Government and some of our citizens not allow us to set up private schools which uses English if not as the medium of instructions while also using Bahasa Malaysia, then at least as the medium of instruction for Science and Mathematics.

I hope politicians will take up this issue and raise the matter in Parliament and fight for private schools which have greater latitude in deciding on the language of instructions. After all, a Minister had said "...the paid services provided by Astro were not basic communications service but rather a choice made by subscribers". That should be changed to "..the education provided the private schools the choices made by parents...".

Mariam Mokhtar - a true Malaysian Malay

Mariam's article is actually titled A day in the life of an ordinary Malaysian — Mariam Mokhtar and is a nice complement to the post Indians helped made Malaysian great both of which I believe are response to those Malays screaming for Ketuanan Melayu (Malay Supremacy) and calling non-Malay Malaysians second class citizens by Malays themself. I just wished there are more Malays like that as it will make us feel more at home here in Malaysia.

You should pop over to A day in the life of an ordinary Malaysian — Mariam Mokhtar to see how non-Malays have contributed to the life in Malaysia. Mariam described how many of services provided to her family were by non-Malays and gives a feel of how Muhibah should be.

Indians helped made Malaysia great - a comment by a Malay gentleman

There is now a great debate regarding the so-called Ketuanan Melayu or Malay Supremacy in Malaysia with some UMNO gangsters even calling outright non-Malays as second class citizens and ignoring the contributions made by non-Malays.

Video: Jangan biar Mei 13 berulang lagi (Don't let May 13 repeat)

The racialists Malays are always using the racial riots of May 13, 1969 and the killing of many Malaysian Chinese to threaten non-Malays whenever the question of inequalities are brought up. Video courtesy of Malaysiakini:

Here is a comment by a real Malay gentleman which is very pertinent to the issue:

Lt Col (Rtd) Mohd Idris Hassan
Dec 11, 09

I refer to the Malaysiakini report Of noisy Indians and 'keling' blood: Utusan strikes again.

The attacking of fellow Malaysians by the mainstream media Utusan Malaysia because of their race is unwarranted and most uncalled for. I remember in the late forties when I was a little boy living in my hometown of Raub, Pahang.

I used to pass road gangs of Tamil labourers toiling in the midday's scorching sun from dawn till dusk. Armed with only picks and shovels, they would be hacking at solid rocks to carve out roads along the mountain side.

They had no proper attire, just a withered white towel tied in turban form on their heads. They would wrap rags around their spindly legs to prevent the hot molten tar from scalding them as they went about their chores.

Yet they had time to smile and wave at passing cars. They used to be referred to as 'coolies' and their slave-like living quarters as coolie lines. My late father used to tell us that most of the roads in Malaya at the turn of the century were built solely by Indian labour.

They toiled in the malaria-infested rubber estates, living with their families in filthy inhuman conditions. The white 'tuan' treated them like slaves and allowed them to indulge in drinking toddy to forget their woes .

Yet again it was the same coolies called 'toties' who serviced our bucket system latrines until the early sixties as there were no takers for this job from the other races. I have seen for myself these 'toties' cleaning the rubber tubs at a stream not far from my house with their bare hands.

In short, when there was any dirty, menial job to be done, it was this Tamil coolie, then often called by the derogatory term 'keling', that did it for us.

Now times have changed and their offsprings have made much progress in all fields and want to take their rightful place in our society .Let's not pour scorn on them and laugh away their pride.

As a soldier I know that many of my Indian/Tamil friends who fought and died for this country . They all are a part of those who stood by us during the good and bad times, they have helped make this country great.

A country which rightfully belongs to all Malaysians.

Nazri Abdul Aziz now a good man?

I used to consider Nazri Abdul Aziz, a dim wit who have a habit of making ridiculous statements and who as a lawyer and politician don't know the meaning of separation of power (he as defacto Minister of Law in the said that he is then Chief Justice, Tan Sri Ahmad Fairuz's Minister (separation of power demands the Judiciary should be independent of the Executive means Nazri cannot be boss (Minister) of Ahmad Fairuz).

However, Nazri now seem to be talking sense when he said "Malay supremacy, which is feudalistic in nature and not in line with uniting all the races as Malaysians" (Nazri lashes out at Malay supremacy advocates and lashed out at Malays and groups that scream Malay Supremacy, saying for political mileage and self interest.

Come on Nazri, more of the same (talking sense) please.

Barisan Nasional caused Malaysia to become an "oil cursed" nation

Below is the speech in English at the Young Corporate Malaysians Summit by Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah, former finance minister and UMNO vice-president. How I wished someone will help translate the speech into Bahasa Malaysia so that those in the rural area can read it in the language they are most familiar with. Anybody wants to volunteer?

In a speech I made in April this year, I spoke of where we stand in our developmental path and what I felt we must do to move forward.

I need to revisit that argument in order to develop it further.

We are stagnating. The signs of a low-growth economy are all around us. Wages are stagnant and the cost of living is rising.

We have not made much progress in becoming a knowledge and services based economy.

According to the World Bank, Malaysia's share of GDP contributed by services was 46.2 percent in 1987. Ten years later, that share had grown by a mere 0.2 percent.

Between 1994 and 2007, real wages grew by 2.6 percent in the domestic sector and by 2.8 percent in the export sector, which is to say, they were flat over that 13-year period.

Meanwhile, our talent scenario is an example of perverse selection at its most ruinous. We are failing to retain our own young talent, people like yourselves, let alone attract international talent to relocate here, while we have had a massive influx of unskilled foreign labour. They now make up 30 to 40 percent of our workforce.
Alone in East Asia, the number of expatriate professionals here has decreased. Alone in East Asia, private sector wage increases follow government sector increases, instead of the other way around. We are losing doctors and scientists and have become Southeast Asia's haven for low-cost labour.

I said that we are in a middle-income trap, stuck in the pattern of easy growth from low-value-added manufacturing and component assembly and unable to make the leap to a knowledge-intensive economy.

Regional competitors with larger, cheaper - and dare I say - hungrier labour forces have emerged. China and India have risen as both lower cost and higher technology producers, and with giant domestic markets.

The manufacturing sector which propelled the growth we enjoyed in the 90s is being hollowed out. There is no going back, there is no staying where we are, and we do not have a map for the way forward.

I am glad that the characterisation of Malaysia as being in a 'middle-income-trap' has been taken up by the government, and that the need for an economic story, or strategy, for Malaysia is now recognised.

We stand in particular need of such a model because we are a smallish economy. We cannot be good at everything, and we don't have to be.

We need only make some reasonable bets in identifying and developing a focused set of growth drivers. It is not difficult to see what the elements of such a growth strategy might be. Whatever we come up with should build on our natural strengths, and our strengths include the following:

We are located at the crossroads of Asia, geographically and culturally, sitting alongside the most important oil route in the world.
We have large Muslim, Chinese and Indian populations that connect us to the three fastest growing places in the world today.
We have some of the largest and oldest rainforests in the world, a treasure house of bio-diversity when the greatest threat facing mankind as a whole now is ecological destruction, and the greatest technological advances are likely to come from bioscience.
We have the English language, a common law system, parliamentary democracy,good schools,an independent civil service and good infrastructure.
These advantages, however, are declining. Our cultural diversity is in danger of coming apart in bigotry, our rainforests are being logged out and planted over, our social and political institutions are decaying.

I have spoken at length on different occasions about the causes and consequences of institutional decline.The decline in our society and indeed in our natural environment, originates in a decline in our basic institutions.

The link between these is corruption.The destruction of our ecosystem for example, is made possible by corrupt officials and business people.The uncontrolled influx of unskilled labour is a direct result of corruption.

These are problems we need to be aware of before we speak glibly about coming up with new strategies and new economic models. We need to understand where we are, and how we have gone wrong, before we can set things right.

You are young, well-educated Malaysians. Many among you have left for other shores. Record numbers of Malaysians, of all races, work abroad or have emigrated. Among these are some of our best people.They sense the stagnation I described.

There is a certain lack of energy, ingenuity and “hunger” in the climate of this country that young people are most sensitive to. In the globalised job market, young people instinctively leave the less simulating and creative environments for those that have a spark to them.

How did we lose our spark as a nation?

We have a political economy marked by dependence on easy options and easy wealth. Like personal dependencies,these bad habits provide temporary comfort but discourage the growth of creativity and resilience.

I mentioned our dependence on low-cost foreign labour.

The other dependence is something I played a part in making possible.This is a story I want to leave you with to ponder in your deliberations today.

Once a blessing, now a curse

Our nation is blessed with a modest quantity of oil reserves. As a young nation coming to terms with this natural bounty in the early 70s, our primary thought was to conserve that oil.

That is why, when Petronas was formed, we instituted the Petroleum Development Council. Its function was to advise the prime minister on how to conserve that oil and use it judiciously for national development. We knew our reserves would not last long.

We saw our oil reserves as an unearned bounty that would provide the money for modernisation and technology. We saw our oil within a developmental perspective. Our struggle then, was to make the leap from an economy based on commodities and low-cost assembly and manufacturing to a more diverse, economy based on high income jobs.

Aware that we had an insufficient tax base to make the capital investments needed to make the leap, we planned to apply oil royalties to what you would call today strategic investments in human capital.

Whatever money left after making cash payments, allocations for development funds, etc, was to be placed in a Heritage Fund for the future.The Heritage Fund was for education and social enrichment.

In working out the distribution of oil between the states, who had sovereign rights over it, and the federal government, we were guided by concerns for equity between all Malaysians, a concern to develop the poorer states (who also happened to be the oil rich states) and a concern for inter-generational equity.That oil was for special development purposes and it was not just meant for our generation.

Sabah and Sarawak joined Malaya to form Malaysia because of the promise of development funds. Yet today, despite being their massive resources, they are some of our poorest states.

Instead of being our ace up the sleeve, however, our oil wealth became in effect a swag of money used to fund the government's operational expenditure, to bail out failing companies, buy arms, build grandiose cities amidst cleared palm oil estates.

Instead of helping eradicate poverty in the poorest states, our oil wealth came to be channeled into the overseas bank accounts of our political and politically-linked class.

Instead of being the patrimony of all Malaysians, and for our children, it is used as a giant slush fund that has propped up authoritarian rule, eroded constitutional democracy and corrupted our entire political and business elite.

Our oil receipts, instead of being applied in the manner we planned upon the formation of Petronas, that is, according to its original developmental purpose, became a fund for the whims and fancy of whoever ran the country, without any accountability.

The oil that was meant to spur our transition to a more humane, educated society has instead become a narcotic that provides economic quick fixes and hollow symbols such as the Petronas towers.

Our oil wealth was meant to help us foster Malaysians capable of building the Twin Towers than hire foreigners to build them, a practice in which we preceded Dubai. I would rather have good government than grand government buildings filled with a demoralised civil service.

It is no wonder that we are no longer productive, no longer using our ingenuity to devise ways to improve ourselves and leap forward.

Malaysia is now an “oil cursed” country. We managed to arrive at this despite not having a lot of oil.

When I started Petronas in 1974, I did not realise I would see the day when I would wish we had not uncovered this bounty.

Public assets 'looted'

The story I have told is a reminder of the scale of the challenge of development. My generation of young people faced this challenge in the 60s and 70s. You face it now.The story tells us that development is about far more than picking strategies out of a box.

You have kindly invited me to address a seminar on strategies for reinventing and liberalising Malaysia's economy. But the story of our squandered oil wealth reminds us that it was not for want of resources or strategies that we floundered.
There's an easy way to plan for retirement. Find out how.

Our failure has been political and moral. We have allowed greed and resentment to drive our politics and looked the other way or even gone along while public assets have been stolen in broad daylight.

I encourage you to take up the cause of national development with the ingenuity that earlier generations of Malaysians brought to this task, but the beginning of our journey must be a return to the basics of public life: the rule of law, honesty, truth-telling and the keeping of promises.

The Malaysia we need to recover is one that was founded on laws and led with integrity. With the hindsight of history we know such things are fragile and can be overturned in one generation, forgotten the next.

Without a living foundation in the basics you might sense an air of unreality around our talk of reinventing ourselves, coming up with “a new economic model” and liberalising our economy.

So before we can reinvent ourselves, we need to reclaim our nation. That larger community, bound by laws, democratic and constitutional, is the context of economic progress, it is the context in which young people find hope, think generous thoughts and create tomorrow.

Why MCA - by Comedy Court

The 12th Malaysian General Elections brought about some shocking defeats but none as devastating as the results obtained by Barisan National's main Chinese component party, political and business partner.... M.C.A. The loss of many seats including their President's Dato Seri Ong Ka Ting has caused the party to stir up new ways to bring back into its fold, the departure of so many Chinese voters, who in the past years could easily be convinced by a simple song and dance such as this ...

Chinaman become Ali Baba Man
With UMNO man who get bumiputra plan
The work the Indian man
He sub to illegal immigrant
And everybody's happy

So the Chinaman, from the opposition
Take over government, and cause the frustration
And now the UMNO man, with the contract in hand
He turn around to Ali Baba

And said what lah! man
How can this happen, tell me
Why MCA?
How can you lose your seat now
Why MCA?
You know election has come,
You should have paid more up front
Now we all bang balls!
Opposition has won

So CHai So Now So How?
So Why MCA?
So CHai So Now So How?
So why MCA?
Last time it's Mou Tak Teng
with Ong Ka Ting
Now all got open tender
how to Kao Tim?

So CHai So Now So How?
So CHai So Now So How?
You say that transparency
Will lead to bankruptcy
Chinese got straight hair
How much straighter can we be?
We are the ones who started HALA money
We are the trusted nominated proxies
Say you, we change policies
Tell people don't see the KERIS
Let Ali Baba do his business and his deals

So CHai So Now So How?
That's how you LIE MCA
So CHai So Now So How?
if not you DIE MCA
So CHai So Now So How?
So that is WHY MCA

Response to Hussein Abdul Hamid "politicians all same"

Hussein Abdul Hamid's blog SteadyAku47 contains lots of wisdom and deserve more than a mention here. His latest post cakap cakap...bloggers steady lah!!! tells of why we should continue to support Anwar Ibrahim and Pakatan Rakyat which you should not only read, but also helps to pass the message around. However, I feel his statement

maybe it is better that we stick to the devil that we know then the devil that we don’t. After all these Politicians are all-alike!

can do with some elaboration, as it is very common to hear this response when one talks about Malaysian politics. I myself have heard this a few times and I will like to tell of how I responded to such remarks.

Insurance sales manager and schoolmate: Ah, all the politicians are the same lah. When they get into power, they will also become corrupt.

Me: Tell me, do all insurance people use unethical methods to sell insurance? Does everyone have the same motivation (money, power) for doing something?

She had to agree with me that not everyone is the same. I then asked, so is it not possible that not all the politicians are the same, in the game only for money and power? This again she had to agree with me.

This technique of responding to statements or questions with more questions can be quite effective. Let me tell of another situation who complained that (Pakatan Rakyat politicians) don't bother to serve the people after they get elected. He was referring to things like dirty drains and meeting the voters, and wonder of wonder, visit him.

I asked: If I elect you ADUN, would you visit me in my house?

The obvious response - no.

Travel around Malaysia and see for yourself how many white elephants like majestic arches, roads paved with fanciful bricks, designer lamp posts, clock towers, Municipal buildings that look like Istanas, extravagant places of worships, refurbishment of residences of VIP’s, abandoned or under-utilized government sports complexes and buildings etc etc. The combined costs of all these will easily amount to the hundreds of billions of Ringgits.
Since 1997, Petronas has handed out a staggering 30 Billion Ringgit in natural gas subsides to IPPs who are already making massive profits. In addition there were much wastages and forward trading of Petronas oil in the 1990’s based on the low price of oil then. The accounts of Petronas are for the eyes of the Prime Minster only we have absolutely no idea of the amount!

From comments:

Access blocked websites through proxy servers

This is a copy-paste of an article in Malaysia Today which is facing attacks and sometimes impossible to access. I hope there will be duplicate sites all over the web so that when Malaysia Today is down, there will be other duplicate sites where Malaysia Today's articles can be read:

The MCMC has in the past failed to silence Malaysia Today officially through blocking it in August 2008. Now, with even more revelations of various scandals of the government exposed through this site, we can't help but suspect that there is a more significant force, a hidden hand at play aimed at bringing down Malaysia Today.


Raja Petra Kamarudin

First of all, I have received tons of happy birthday messages via SMS, Facebook, e-mails and postings on this site. Initially, I tried to reply to all these messages one by one but as the messages flooded in I found it impossible to reply to each and every message individually. Therefore, I would like to say thank you and at the same time apologise to all those I was not able to personally reply to.

Now, you may have noticed that of late Malaysia Today has been ‘off the air’ almost every day, sometimes for a stretch of many hours. This has been going on for more than a week. The man leading our technical team thought that maybe we should inform our readers what is happening so that you can be kept abreast of the developments. Rest assured we are doing everything we can to solve this problem.

Nevertheless, there is just so much we can do. Money, of course, is one issue that we have to address, as what would be required does cost us quite a sum. Money aside, though, if they choose to continue the attacks, even money can’t solve the problem. We just have to pick ourselves up and start all over again whenever we are hit and bear the disruptions to the site with a stiff upper lip.

Anyway, let our technical team explain what is the problem we have been facing.

What happened to Malaysia Today

By Malaysia Today’s technical team

With so much confusion and speculation making its rounds about what is happening to Malaysia Today over more than a week, we are compelled to offer our explanation so that the record can be set straight. Only limited technical details will be mentioned to allow you to appreciate the scale of challenge the site is facing.

You may now be aware that the site has been up and down since Friday, 17 September 2009. This was due to malicious activities by those behind the effort to cripple Malaysia Today. This is just one of the many rounds of cyber-attacks that we at Malaysia Today have had to face for more than a year now.

Coincidentally, this latest round of attacks started immediately after RPK’s explosive expose two weeks ago on Tuesday regarding the Malaysian Cabinet's knowledge and 'approval' of the PKFZ scandal long before it became public knowledge. Suspicious activities against the site happened as early as Wednesday, but the first damage was done in the afternoon of Thursday, which brought the site down.

The site was quickly recovered and by 6.00pm we were up and running again although with some loss of data. The attack revolved around the long-time problem faced by the site - a rather old version of Joomla content management system and the use of third-party components.

Lack of resources (financial, manpower, etc.) has always been a challenge faced by Malaysia Today, which affected the maintenance and operations of the site. During the recovery process, we locked down the site to reduce the danger of further compromises.

The next wave of attacks came the following day on Friday. This time it was in a wave of DDoS traffic crippling one of our nodes at Singapore. The Singapore node operates with about 30Mbps of bandwidth, a luxury by Malaysian standards but far short if we need to match any serious DDoS attacks. The node was basically choked with illegitimate traffic. Typical of DDoS network attacks, the origin of the attacks is difficult to pinpoint and sometimes pointless as the attack agents/zombies are likely compromised systems themselves.

We then activated our resources at our US node to recover the site. The process required optimisation on the site to cope with demand. (The demand on the site seemed much higher, possibly due to the interest on the PKFZ expose.) Hence the intermittent site outage, due to either overloading or optimisation process.

Being a service provider of a larger scale and sophistication, the US node has a higher capability of sustaining the attacks. Still, the attacks persisted on a daily basis and we tried deflecting them as far as we could. The DDoS traffic we suffered ranged from 227Mbps to 835Mbps, a mammoth scale for anyone familiar with maintaining Internet sites. The attacker does not appear interested in defacing the website, typical of self-styled college hackers. He/she just deleted articles published on Malaysia Today, literally one by one, with the single-minded aim of erasing all the explosive stuff on the site.

Further complicating the trace of attacks is the use of free proxy servers, on random basis, by the attackers. This is an irony, as we have been advising our users to use such proxy servers to overcome any potential content filtering by the government.

All the malicious activities and behaviours bear the hallmark of professional, for-hire hackers. These are certainly no amateurs, judging from the persistence and frequency of the attacks, with the main objective of making the content of Malaysia Today inaccessible to the public.

We believe that there is NO explicit blocking of the site by the various Malaysian ISPs. The inconsistent and intermittent accessibility of the site in the past many days are the result of the situation described above, although we must caution that it is almost impossible to detect any clandestine censorship.

The MCMC has in the past failed to silence Malaysia Today officially through blocking it in August 2008. Now, with even more revelations of various scandals of the government exposed through this site, we can't help but suspect that there is a more significant force, a hidden hand at play aimed at bringing down Malaysia Today.

Can UMNO reform itself? I think no

I like a comment made by Walla in Sakmongkol's "The Future of UMNO-2

A: 'Interesting essay, no?'

B: 'Generic value, too. And as interesting as wenger's regression analysis!

But i have a problem with it, A.'

A: 'And that be?'

B: 'It's like Umno now trying to do what Pakatan had already done.

Look back. When Pakatan first started, it was just a motley lot cutting their teeth on the grindstone of modus vivendi. If anything, that's political coopetition. But Pakatan worked whereas BN didn't during GE12 because Umno and its cohorts chose not to see the seismic change in the fundamental sentiment of the voters which caused them to vote across racial and religious lines. Now Pakatan has moved ahead with things that reinforce even more the original sentiment, for example, malays running DAP branches, that reflect a refreshingly plural approach to politics.

Meanwhile BN has created its own contradictions. It is race-based but it wants to create a 1malaysia. Its individuals can be friendly but its governmental policies have damned entire communities. And it can talk about people first while scheming to take their rights at all costs using all the institutions of state under its control.'

A: 'Hey, i take exception to the last statement. Umno is not like that.'

B: 'Really? Then please explain to me why it is not alright for the rakyat to know as a matter of their basic right that the cabinet already knew about PKFZ's cost escalations. Instead of admitting guilt and cover-up, what you have is a feeble attempt at deflection. Please, the rakyat know all about double-standards, namely when caught, pin fault on the messengers. That sort of low IQ thing is almost blase these days.'

A: 'Do you see it getting worse, B?'

B: 'Of course. Especially when incumbents can define what is national security to their own political whims. Especially when there are at least five sets of standards in everything - take your time to think out the levels. Especially when a government can gerrymander constituencies and move entire army camps for persuaded postal voting.'

A: 'But BN didn't win in all postal votings before, B.'

B: 'Maybe it wants to use them selectively for strategic objectives. It's like Churchill hiding the fact that the british had cracked the german enigma code by deliberating not sounding the alarm to one of his cities which was targeted for luftwaffe bombing.'

Hassan Ali is a double headed snake

Well you know, this Hassan Ali who is supposed to be a PAS Commissioner and in Pakatan Rakyat but behave more like an UMNO warlord, is becoming more and more like a double-headed snake. You know, the kind that says one thing to one party and another thing to another.

Hassan Ali criticised Selcat for behaving like a bully towards District Officers and posed as defending District Officers against Selcat.

However, listen to Teng Chang Kim: "Unknown to them, Hassan Ali had been pushing for all senior civil servants — including DO’s, heads of local authorities, the state secretary and state legal advisor — to be replaced during PR state meetings."

Wish he quickly go join the corrupt UMNO

PKFZ Cabinet Paper - What the Cabinet hid from the Malaysian public

RPK posted this - What the Cabinet hid from the Malaysian public over at his blog Malaysia Today and if that is not accessible, go to Malaysia Today's mirror site.

Mirror site for Malaysia Today

Raja Petra Kamaruddin's blog Malaysia Today which URL is was attacked and became unavailable after RPK posted an expose of PKFZ cabinet documents.

Thankfully, Malaysia Today is accessible again, but just in case, here is Malaysia Today's mirror site which have the URL

Please copy and save the link in a safe place in case the powers give problems again. I think I will put the links in my sidebar.

Cakap cakap - bagaimana sekarang

Talk talk, what now? (by HUSSEIN ABDUL HAMID

Kita harus terus terang terhadap sesuatu perkara. Kenapa kita hendak UMNO dibuang? Cuma ini:

Kita ditipu oleh UMNO yang menguna masa mereka untuk memperkayakan dirinya.

Mereka menguna apa-apa sahaja yang mereka ada untuk mencapai itu. Ketuanan Melayu, status Bumiputra, Agama - apa jua sahaja tanpa hormatnya pun untuk yang telah meningal. Kenapa saya kata yang telah mati? Kalau Najib menghormati bapanya Tun Razak, beliau akan hentikan kerogolan dan kecurian negara kita oleh UMNO - sebuah parti yang Tun Razak pada masa dahulu adalah Presiden. Kalau dia menghormati yang telah meninggal, dia akan memberitahu kami apa yang telah berlaku kepada Kugan, kepada Teoh Beng Hock and lain-lain yang mati semasa bawah tahanan Kerajaan, Najib punya kerajaan.

Adalah susah untuk percaya bahawa yang ini telah berlaku selama beberap tahun dan masih berlaku pada masa kini. Adalah Rosmah dan Najib berbincang semasa serapan duit yang mereka boleh dapat dari sebutharga MINDEF? dari PKFZ? Dari peluang perniagaan F1 yang baru timbul? Adakah kawan-kawan mereka memberitahu (tanya) mereka "Dato Seri boleh saya buat proposal untuk Bengkel F1 di Sepang?" "Boleh say buat proposal macam mana kita boleh jual 'corporate advertising' untuk kereta F1 di Sepang?" Adalah ini benar-benar berlaku?

Adalah 'associates' Rosmah meronda menjual kebolehan mereka untuk dapat sebutharga kepada mereka yang baya kommission yang tingi sekali? Duit pendahuluan? Adakah orang niaga bermesyuarat yang dikendalikan oleh 'associates' Rosmah untuk menjumpa Rosmah untuk berbincang perniagaan dan cadangan mereka? Ya, semua ini telah berlaku semalam, hari ini dan akan terus berlaku pada masa depan.

Jadi, apakah Pakatan Rakyat boleh menyumbang? Selain dari kata singkat oleh Zaid Ibrahim tentang mendiri kabinet pembankang , tak ada apa-apa yang telah berlaku. Saya meminta Pakatan Rakyat sekarang membentukan Kerajaan pembangkang dicadang yang jadi alternatif kepada kerajan yang tak ada guna yang kami ada sekarang. Kerajaan bayangan itu akan memberi kepada kami apakah mereka boleh buat bila mereka menjadi kerajaan. Kerajaan menanti ini akan ada Menteri-menteri bayanganyang sangup melawan dengan 'counterpart'nya di kerajan sekarang and sedia berkuatkuasa bila masa datang. Mereka cuma ada kurang daripada 3 tahun untuk meyakinkan orang awam bahawa mereka sangup buat. Lebih awal, lebih baik.

Siapa akan menjadi Perdana Menteri, siapakah akan menjadi Naib Perdana Menteri, Menteri Kewangan, Menteri Ketahanan - Siap Menteri Besar Johor, Pahang atau Terengganu? Kamu adakah orang-orang untuk menenuhi jawatan-jawatan it? Kami hendak tahu supaya kami boleh nampak bagaimana prestasi semasa pembangkang. Berilah masa untuk mereka masa mencukupi untuk menyediakan dirinya untuk apa yang akan jadi - lebih penting, membolehkan rakyat 'merasakan' bagaimanakah kerajaan bawah Pakatan Rakyat. Jangan bimbang samada boleh dapat orang Melayu atau Cina atau India yang mencukupi - cuma dapat yang baik sekali yang ada. Bolehkah kamu buat demikian? Bolehkah kamu mendirikan Kerajaan Menanti? Kalau tidak, jadi kamu tidak sedia untuk membentukan Kerajaan yang akan datang.

Saya bimbang kami akan hilangkan momentum sedikit demi sedikit - tsunami Pakatan Rakyat yang menyapukan negara pada pilihan umum yang lepas telah menjadi air pasang.meliputi pantai Barisan Nasional sahaja. Ini tidak boleh diterima.

Pakatan Rakyat ada semua senapang yang perlu untuk memulakan tsunami semula. Teoh Beng Hock sedang menjadi 'blip on the horizon'. Kugan hampir dilupakan. MACC telah diberitahu oleh kami bahawa kami tidak akan mengizinkan mereka buli kami - kami perlu menguburkan mereka. PDRM? Membongkahkan rasuah mereka. Ambil video-video mereka merompak kami sampai buta - cetakkan di Internet - kalau kamu tak boleh buat bagitu di Malaysia, hantarkan kepada saya ( dan saya akan certakkan dalam blog saya. Kalau kamu diminta untuk bayar RM50 supay kamu tidak akan didenda sebanyak RM300, berilah tetapi semasa buat bagitu, rakamkan dalam kamera dan membonkahkan mereka.

Cakap-cakap semua tentang pihak agama yang berkuasa tentang menangkap orang Islam yang minum arak and ditangkap bagi khalwat. Hei orang bodoh kamu - pergilah kepada kelab-kelab malam dangdut, palor-palor urutdan pusat-pusat spa dan pusat-pusat kesihatan dimana perempuan-perempuan Melayu adalah cuma satu cen sedozen (murah), pergilah ke hotel-hotel lima bintang, disko-disko and ikutlah orang besar UMNO - tengoklah apa yang mereka buat - kamu adalah kerja senang. Kamu tidak akan ada pegawai-pegawai mencukupi untuk melakukan kerjanay.

Dan atas semua ini adalah Najib. Pelawaklah Perdana Menteri ini. Kalau kamu setuju dengan apa yang saya menulis, memberitahulah sebanyak mungkin orang membaca bab ini yang mungkin. Emailkannya, kaitkan (link) bab ini, cetakkannya dan menyebarkannya - pastikan khabar ini dapat sampai kepada ramai.

Kami hendak mengubahkan Kerajaan Barisan Nasional keran mereka merompakkan wang-wang kami yang kami dapat dengan susah-payah.

Kami akan undi Pakatan Rakyat - tetapi mereka mesti tunjukkan mereka sanggup ambil alih daripada Barisan Nasional. Beritahu kami siapa antara kamu yang akan membentukkan Kerajaan Menanti - Kabinet bayangan. Apakah polisi-polisi kamu? Apa yang kamu akan melakukan bila kamu jadi kerajaan?

Jadilah kawan, biarlah dari kamu yang berada bersama saya tentang ini memulakan tsunami kami sendirinay - biarlah kami bersatu. Kalau kamu ada apa-apa untuk sebut, hantarlah fikiran kamu. Kalau perlu, saya akan melukis secara saya sendir dan cetakkan pada blog ini. Saya berjanji kepada kamu - apa jua kamu hantar kepada saya akan menjadi antara kamu dan saya sahaja, dan akan tetap bagitu, selain kalau kamu hendak yang lain. Biarlah kami memulakan perjalanan bersama dan bergerak menuju ke pilihan raya yang akan datang. Untuk sekarang kami pandang kepada Bagan Pinang. Apakah kamu akan buat? Tolong beritahulah saya.

UALA LUMPUR, Sept 17 — Just a week after his grandstanding against Umno interference in his party affairs, MIC president Datuk Seri S Samy Vellu was forced today to announce that he will personally apologise to Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad over the “slipper garland” insult.

Sorry press publish too fast. Will write about what I wanted to post later. If you cannot wait, surf over to Malaysian Insider to read what prompted me to want to write this post.

Spam alert - Mid Valley Megamall experience

To: Subject: Fw: : Mid Valley Megamall Dangerous Exprience



To the men : warn your loved ones!
To the women : remember this!

About a month ago there was a woman standing by the Mega Mall entrance (Mid-Valley Megamall location map) passing out flyers to all the women going in. The woman had written the
flyer herself to tell about an experience she had, so that she might warn
other women.

The previous day, this woman had finished shopping, went out to her car
and discovered that she had a flat. She got the jack out of the trunk and
began to change the flat. A nice man dressed in business suit and carrying
a briefcase walked up to her and said,

' I notice you ' re changing a flat tire. Would you like me to take care
of it for you? '

The woman was grateful for his offer and accepted his help. They chatted
amiably while the man changed the flat, and then put the flat tire and the
jack in the trunk, shut it and dusted his hands off.

The woman thanked him profusely, and as she was about to get in her car,
the man told her that he left his car around on the other side of the
mall, and asked if she would mind giving him a lift to his car. She was a
little surprised and asked him why his car was on the other side. He
explained that he had met an old friend in the mall whom he hadn ' t seen
for some time and they had a bite to eat and visited for a while; he got
turned around in the mall and left through the wrong exit, and now he was
running late and his car was clear around on the other side of the mall.

The woman hated to tell him ' no ' because he had just rescued her from
having to change her flat tire all by herself, but she felt uneasy. Then
she remembered seeing the man put his briefcase in her trunk before
shutting it and before he asked her for the ride to his car.

She told him that she ' d be happy to drive him to his car, but she just
remembered one last thing she needed to buy. She said she would only be a
few minutes; he could sit down in her car and wait for her; she would be
as quick as she could be. She hurried into the mall, and told a security
what had happened; the guard came out to her car with her, but the
man had left.

They opened the trunk, took out his locked briefcase and took it down to
the police station. The police opened it (ostensibly to look for ID so
they could return it to the man). What they found was rope, duct tape and

When the police checked her ' flat ' tire, there was nothing wrong with
it; the air had simply been let out. It was obvious what the man ' s
motive was, and obvious that he had carefully thought it out in advance.

The woman was blessed to have escaped harm. How much worse it would have
been had she waited in the car while the man fixed the tire, or if she had
a baby strapped into a car seat. Or if she ' d gone against her judgment
and given him a lift. I ' d like you to forward this to all the women you

It may save a life. A candle is not dimmed by lighting another candle. I
was going to send this to the ladies only; but guys, if you love your
mothers, wives, sisters, daughters, etc., you may want to pass it on to
them as well.

Send this to any woman you know that may need to be reminded that the
world we live in has a lot of crazies in it....better safe than sorry.



Pass this along to every woman you meet. Never let your guard down.

Listen to this idiot Home Minister (kerismuddin or Hishammudin) who despite being a lawyer do not know the law and who would condone incitement and threat of violence an bloodshed. I wonder what his grandfather Onn Jaafar would say at such idiotic speech.

Mohd Radzhi Salleh betrayed PKR

Have a good look at this photo of Mohd. Radzhi Salleh, Lunas state assemblyman and former PKR member but now declared himself an independent while supporting the Federal Government of Najib:

Note that he never gave any substantive reasons for leaving PKR, only giving a vague statement he is not happy with the PRK leadership without giving actual reasons or justifications.

Perhaps it is a blessing in disguise. Pakatan Rakyat had problems getting quality candidates to stand for election last March and are now paying for it. Read about those difficulties by Nat, a PKR member who should be in the know at Radzhi: The BN bloodthirsty crossover onslaught continues.

However, all these betrayal by such unsuitable candidates is bringing a cleansing to Pakatan Rakyat, particularly PKR and I am sure when the next General Election comes, Pakatan Rakyat will be cleansed of all weak and unsuitable candidates.

BN caught red-handed: Election Commission closed down Welfare Ministry event

Are we finally seeing some semblance of independence and fair play from the Malaysian Election Commission. All along, the Malaysian Election Commission had been seen as closing both eyes to wrongdoings by the UMNO/BN breaching the election rules.

PKR had complained that BN had abused government machineries for election purposes at the Barisan Nasional ceramah at Sama Gagah village where Deputy Information, Communications and Culture Minister Heang Siak Kee was giving a speech plus there was a Welfare Department bus with the department logo was parked plus BN flags, buntings and other materials. There was even the words "Please vote BN" written in Chinese characters on the stage. Sim Tze Tzin, Pantai Jerajak state representative also claimed that Heang Siak Kee had told participants that those above 60 years of age can claim RM200 from the organizers.

This time a surprise enforcement team led by Election Commission officer Sulaiman Abdullah raided the function and ordered it closed. Minister Heang Siak Kee shamefacedly had to stop her speech half-way and sneak away with shame.

Let us hope that this is the start of a new beginning for the previously highly tainted Election Commission. There is still one outstanding issue sticking up like a sore thumb - Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin use of an Armed Force helicopter on UMNO business. That is corruption and abuse of power.

Khir Toyo denies allegation; MACC Selangor Deputy Director on leave

by Chen Shaua Fui, Merdeka Review

The Deputy Director of the Selangor Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission or MACC (Suruhanjaya Pencegah Rasuah atau SPRM), Hishamuddin Hashim whose name was mentioned in the mystery letter that was broadcasted yesterday, have taken emergency leave today.

Reporters from Merdeka Review tried to interview him regarding the allegation in a "mystery letter" that was exposed in "Malaysia Today", in his office. However, the office staff informed them that Hishamuddin has take leave and will not be coming in to office today.

The reporters thus failed to get his response regarding the allegation that was thrown at him as was broadcasted in that letter.

Meanwhile, former Selangor Chief Minister, Khir Toyo who was implicated in a "plot to bring down the Pakatan Rakyat Selangor government" in the "mystery letter" yesterday, denied all the allegations in his blog.

Khir Toyo who is currently in Mecca, claimed that all the allegations in the "mystery letter" are defamation and slander, and declared that he will make a police report when he return to Malaysia.

I wish I have the capability of writing stuff with this post title as the real author of MUHYIDDIN DESPERATELY WANTS TO GO TO HEAVEN is none other than RPK (Raja Petra Kamaruddin) of Malaysia Today. He seem to have phenomenal memory of the past plus very credible sources of information that we lesser mortals do not have. You should go to MUHYIDDIN DESPERATELY WANTS TO GO TO HEAVEN to read what RPK has to reveal about our Deputy Prime Minister.

Muhyiddin Yassin: please read Citizen Nades report

Muhyiddin Yassin is both Deputy Prime Minister and Education Minister, a very crucial post that can impact seriously on the future of our young ones as well as the future of Malaysia. Right now the Malaysian education system is very unhealthy with incompetent teachers. Muhyiddin so far had failed to impress as the second highest leader of our country with his series of nonsensical statements. Let us hope he reads about what R. Nadeswarn (Citizen Nades) wrote in the Sun recently: Teaching children to fail

Someone sent Nadeswaran a brown envelope containing a note with the header: Jabatan Pelajaran Negeri Selangor: Program Peningkatan Prestasi UPSR (Selangor Education Department: UPSR Performance Enhancement Programme). It was a mathematics test preparatory paper for Standard Six pupils who would be sitting for the exam next month. Apparently, of the 40 questions, there were 33 grammatical mistakes, that is, a horrible 75%.

Muhyiddin Yassin, please surf over to the Sun and read for yourself the depth to which our Malaysian education system has plunged with half past six teachers who cannot even write a decent sentence without grammatical error

BN's Permatang Pasir candidate Rohaizat Othman offence personal

The Permatang Pasir Barisan Nasional (BN) candidate Rohaizat Othman, a lawyer, was struck off the Malaysian Bar for a personal offence, according to Bar Council president Ragunath Kesavan which was reported at The Edge (Rohaizat's offence a personal misconduct, Ragunath says). The offence is related to stakeholders' money from Koperasi Pekebun Getah for which Ragunath says there was no account.

Ragunath: "The offence was for personal liability and does not involve any other persons as Rohaizat was named by the complainant, and not his partner. Rohaizat was disbarred on March 7 last year and he appealed against the Bar Council decision to the High Court, which also dismissed his appeal on Aug 12 this year. When the board looked into this matter and the order was made, there was no reimbursement to the stakeholders involving the sum of RM140,000. Even if you pay, the offence has been committed and it is a serious offence as this involves dealing with client's money. If you are an innocent party, you would not be found guilty by the disciplinary committee and the charge leveled under Section 103D is tantamount to criminal misconduct."

Voters in Permatang Pasir when they go to the polling station to cast their votes in this "buy election" should take this into consideration and hopefully will cast their votes for the PAS/Pakatan Rakyat candidate Mohd Salleh Man.

Protest song - it isn't nice

The song "It isn't nice" was one of the songs sung in the 1960s by civil rights marchers in the US, without whom Obama would not be able to even sit with the whites in a bus, let alone reside in the White House. The words and music was composed by Malvina Reynolds and was copyrighted in 1964 by Schroder Music Company, and was renewed in 1993. The Japanese version is banned in Japan. Here is part of the lyrics (for the full lyrics, refer to Malvina Reynolds: Song Lyrics and Poems:

It isnt nice to block the doorway
It isnt nice to go to jail
There are nicer ways to do it
But the nice ways have all failed
It isnt nice; it isnt nice
Youve told us once, youve told us twice
But if thats freedoms price
We dont mind ...

"It isn't nice" sung by Heather Lev:
