I am one, With you I am two. Who else will join us!

Unfortunately, and in a worrying trend for all Malaysian and Malaysian Christians, Pastor Raymond is not the only Christian leader who has been abducted recently. Pastor Joshua Hilmy, a former Muslim and ethnic Malay, went missing on November 30, 2016. 


Khalid Abu Bakar blames intense publicity over the abduction for hampering investigations.


Another man taken away, similar to how pastor was abducted

 | March 23, 2017 
Opposition leader Wan Azizah Wan Ismail says social activist Amri Che Mat went missing on Nov 24 and it was professionally done and well planned. 
KUALA LUMPUR: Opposition leader Wan Azizah Wan Ismail announced today that another person has gone missing without a trace in a case similar to the abduction of Pastor Raymond Koh. She said that after Koh’s abduction on Feb 13, she received news that a social activist from Perlis, Amri Che Mat, 43, had gone missing. “Even though police reports have been made, there has been no news, no follow-ups,” she said during a press conference at her office at the Dewan Rakyat.

steadyaky47 comment :  In the early 60's, during my first year at University Malaya, I was staying in Happy Garden with a group of friends  - from SABS Kuantan - some my classmates and some my seniors - all Malays. In between playing carom, poker and finding ways to keep body and soul together, politics was not a concern and government even less so. 

Our neighbour was a Chinese family, Kang who worked in the RMAF, spoke Malay as any Chinese from up North can - as good as any of us and with the ease of one who has grown up all his life, among Malays. Sometimes if we are about to leave for Uni and Kang was outside doing stuff to his Lambretta, we would exchange greetings and salutations and maybe spend a few minutes bantering about whatever neighbours do banter about then ...and then be off on our way to Uni. 

At Uni we sat among our friends and acquaintances - race and religion never a concern nor a pre condition as to whom we would want to sit with or would allow to sit with us. I remember Zeti (of Bank Negara fame) - already a beauty at that age - as one of those present during our lectures and always we were student first and everything else happening outside our campus, never really bothered any of us.

When I go back to Kuala Lipis where my father was then serving in the Police, the friends I had there were not Chinese, Indian or Malays...there were Tan, Balwant or Md Nor. I remember the Rest House was managed by a Chinese, the shops were mostly Chinese owned and there were plenty of Malays and Indians around. No animosity, no suspicion of the other intentions. When circumstance and needs threw us together, politics or religion was no concern of any of us. You socialise with Tan, Balwant or Md Nor as when any of them are free to do so. Nothing else matters.

Fast forward to today.

I live in Melbourne, so does Balwant. Of my housemates from 163 Happy Garden....three of them are Dato's...and the rest are well into retirement. Kang, I have lost touch with. Zeti became Governor. My father have long ago passed away and I will be 70 this year still married to the girl I met at 21 in London. Our daughter is settled in Canda with her family and our son is with us in Melbourne. 

So what else have changed?

Life as we all know it has changed. Balwant and me are still friends in Melbourne for  we are far from the maddening crowd in Malaysia.

Our country is much divided by our own government, into racial and religious enclaves. Our people are abused, used and disrespected by the same government. Our neighbours, friends, acquaintances and fellow Malaysians are suspicious of each other, divided, angry, sullen, fearful and helpless against a government of their own choosing who are now fighting with everything at their disposal, legal and illegal, to stay in government. 

In all, our country is in flux. We do not know where it is heading. We do not dare to think that good will ultimately prevail over evil. We are constantly being pulled apart from each there because this same government divides and rule for that is the only way they think they can dominate politically. And those of us with long memories and even longer patience, know that never before have our country been more divided, our people more abused and used, our future compromised possibly beyond saving. 

And what should be of more concern to all of us then anything else is that there is a palpable feeling in many many of our people, across the length and breadth of this nation of ours, that there is nothing they can do but to accept what is their lot now without hope for change. Such is the hold that this najib led barisan nasional government now has over our people, our nation and our future.

All that najib and his cohorts in government have needed to do to hold on to government they have done. All...and I mean all, that they have to do, they have done. 

They have made the Civil Service, government departments, PDRM, the Attorney General's office, the Electoral Commission and all other authoritative entities in Malaysia, into their image : Corrupt and dedak dependent! 

They are in the process of doing the same with the Armed Forces - the Angkatan Tentera  - but for now there are enough elements within the ATM to stall if not dismiss this attempt by this najib led bn government to do to the ATM what it has already done to PDRM.

The Sultans are all already compromised many many years ago. How not to be compromised when they are dependent on the bn government for their daily bread.       

Religion have long been hijacked by umno to serve their own purpose. And like the Sultans, when these religious zealots have their outstretched hands filled with dedaks....religion becomes merely another weapon of choice for politicians to use and abuse for their own vested interests.

And yet in all this, there have been some saving grace in the things that umno and their leaders, will and will not do. Until recently that had included paying at least lip service respect, to past leaders. 

Not anymore. najib's treatment of Mahathir, the very man who had given him the opportunity to be prime minister, of Anwar Ibrahim and najib's treatment of Mahyuddin, his ex deputy, signals his and umno's intent on how they will treat everyone and anyone oppose to them. As their sworn enemies! And they will do to them what others have done to their enemies - tar and feather them when necessary.

And of late there had been another development in the escalating war of means that this despicable najib led bn government are prepared to do. 

Murder most foul : Altantuya, Hussan Najadi. Kevin Morais the two pastors and now Social Activists, Amri Che Mat have all been murdered or gone missing. We are seeing a disturbing pattern of deeds that makes those who are becoming a problem to the powers that be disappear. And having disappeared, the Judiciary and PDRM colludes to prevent justice from going it's normal course, while prime minister najib parrots his "no stone untrue" promise to the people!

You and I know that more murders will follow. 

You and I know that PDRM and the Judiciary will do what they have done before - at best look the other way, and at worse make themselves willing associates of najib's and bn determined attempt to rid themselves of any one capable of being a threat to their political domination of all things Malaysian. 

Maybe it is too late to do anything because the rot has already settled in too deep. Maybe najib and bn really have got a death hold over all things Malaysians and will not let go no matter what. Maybe umno and the Malay electorates will not allow any change to their status quo and has the number to ensure that it is so.

Whatever the can be sure of one thing. 

There is just so much you can do to a human being before that human being starts to question what they can do to make things change for the better for himself, for his family and if he cares enough, for his people and his country. Ask yourself if that limit has been breached by najib, Ask yourself how many more people will you allow to "disappear" before you say "enough". And then ask yourself if the killing does not stop...what will you do? 

That time to question one self, for many of us, started a long time ago. But those of us who have started questioning ourselves know that not enough of us have done so to allow us to be comfortable in our strength to tell najib to stop. More of you must come to our side. More of you must be strong, brave and loud enough to make najib understand that enough is enough. If you do not, more murders will be committed. If you do not, our chances to claim back our nation from a corrupt and despicable leader, grows lesser by the day. 

Think about this now rather than later. Do something about it today rather than tomorrow. 

I am one, With you I am two. Who else will join us!

Quickies : SUGAR VISUAL!

Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil di bengkel milik Pak Kris di Wirun.

We have friends in Singapore keeping watch at Seletar Airport on the movements of the Jet Global 5000 bought with 1MDB money. They put the Jet in the hanger. We know.They paint over the registration number N689WM we know. They take the Jet out of the hanger. We know. They put the Jet back into the hanger we know!

We also have friends in Indonesia too! 

Remember these tiga individual yang diminta hubungi SPRM? 

Jho Low is tripping the light fantastic on his 91.5 meter yacht Equanimity!

Now where is Nik Faisal?

No one in Malaysia seems to know where to find Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil....or maybe the right word to use here is that no one in Malaysia wants to know where Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil is. 

My friends in Immigration tells me that Nik Faisal comes in and out of Malaysia at will. The operative word here is "at will". At whose "will" is for you to work out but if the Head of Immigration tells his men to close one eye and shut the other to the coming and going of Nik Faisal go figure out who tells the Head of Immigration to do so! 

But I digress.

Our friends in Indonesia tells me that Nik Faisal Ariff Kamil is in Indonesia - in Jawa be exact in Wirun, Sukoharjo.  

Yes the same Nik Faisal, who, as MD of SRC International approved the transfer of RM4 billion into Najib's personal account 

The same Nik Faisal who is a close associate to fat boy Joh the link below at steadyaku47 for more on this:

Nik Faisal Arif Kamil Flees to Indonesia : Still CEO of SRC International : Can still leave and return to Malaysia at will. Still holds PA over Najib's personal bank account!

And one other thing before I finish off on this one...our friend in Indonesia is also working on  that FGV and PT Eagle High dodgy deal. Things are not what they seem to be!. And when I know the juicy will you!

Sarawak Report : Swiss Swoop Suspected Soon!

23 March 2017

Foreign investigations have been continuing apace into 1MDB and today further hints have emerged from the US media, courtesy of the Wall Street Journal, that the FBI, who have been globetrotting as they gather evidence on the case, will shortly issue criminal charges.
Top of the list of wanted characters is Jho Low, along with his family whom Sarawak Report have long reported to have been zig-zagging around Beijing and Bangkok, occasionally utilising the small flotilla of boats comprising Jho’s super-yacht Equanimity, the converted tug Lady D and a speed launch accompanying them.
Meanwhile, Sarawak Report has also received information signalling concerted action with Switzerland and Singapore.
So far there have been no official moves against Directors of the company PetroSaudi, which we have demonstrated were heavily complicit in assisting in the massive thefts via Coutts Zurich from 1MDB from 2009-2011, for which they reaped rewards of hundreds of millions of dollars, paid personally and into the company itself.
Much of that money was paid into setting up drilling contracts in Venezuela, which are now subject to investigations and bitter disputes, after hundreds of millions were spent but virtually no oil extracted.
Now there are indications that regulators may finally take steps against the company. Till now PetroSaudi have vigorously threatened any media who have suggested they might be under investigation.
However, there is now the added issue of the alleged conspiracy to frame and imprison the whistleblower Xavier Justo, with the assistance of a team of British private investigators, one of whom posed as a Scotland Yard detective to the Thai authorities and obtained a forced confession from Justo.
Top properties
Top properties owned by Tarek Obaid
PetroSaudi’s remaining shareholder, Tarek Obaid, is presently believed to be in London and seeking to sell his Mayfair properties, one of which is a grandiose £31 million 18th Grade II listed mansion in Upper Brook Street.  The other is a duplex flat in adjacent Park Street.
Obaid, who also spends considerable time in Geneva, has accumulated a large property portfolio in Switzerland also, much of it under the name of his brother Karim Obaid and he and his brothers have been pouring funds into advertising what they describe as their family’s charitable foundation, particularly on CNN.
The Obaids have also been hiring agencies to clear up their image on Google, according to sources.  Negative stories are being combatted with paid for PR as he and PetroSaudi’s other directors wait to see if the prosecutors will move.
One of the self-promoting posts by Tarek Obaid for his family foundation. However, most of the money came from 1MDB!

Other top potential targets are the Las Vegas Hakkasan nightclub empire, funded by payments from 1MDB through the Edmund de Rothschild Bank account of the so-called Vasco Trust, in the name of Khadem Al Qubaisi, the former Chairman of Aabar.
Also, a host of 1MDB officials and facilitators could be targetted, including its former legal counsel Jasmine Loo, who was identified as receiving a $5 million bribe for signing off money diverted out of the fund. Another lawyer, US resident Sarawakian Tiffany Heah, who worked for Jho Low, his right hand man Seet Li Lin and fugitive former 1MDB Executive Director, Casey Tan.
SRC Director Nik Faisal Arif Kamil, who is named as an authorised person on several of Najib’s bank accounts into which he transferred millions of ringgit of cash borrowed from the KWAP pension fund, is also a name in the frame.
Those close to the investigation have indicated that an emerging pattern of close collaboration between the global investigators in this case will mean that when action is eventually ready to be taken it is likely to be coordinated across the several jurisdictions.

He Looks at Sadness and Tries to Turn it Around.....

With thanks to Patrick... Life is Good!

Sarawak Report : The Bugis Pirate Is Praised by Jho Low

23 March 2017

Weathering the Storm:
Jho Low, a Malaysian financier suspected of playing a key role in an alleged looting of state fund 1Malaysia Development Bhd., or 1MDB, sent friends this New Year’s greeting.
“2016 was the Perfect Storm; but the calmness and resolve
of our Captain, led his loyal Sailors whom placed their lives
with utmost trust in his leadership weathered the storm…”
“When the wind could not blow away their joint resilience,
the storm eventually passed, and the Captain simply adjusted
their sails effortlessly and continued their destined journey…”
“The men and women that came out of the storm were not
the same men that walk in. Through struggle, they established
new strengths they never knew they collectively had…”
“The very moment they were brought to their knees, and
their world was about to fall apart; their Captain’s exemplary
leadership guided them to safety
; and through this experience,
they achieve a new level of humility, nobility and higher
intelligence ready to set sail for greater achievements
in 2017 for their people

[Today, March 22nd is the birthday of Kevin Morais]
Jho Low ought to have kept his trap shut over New Year.  Silence was golden as he hid all those previous months.
This message was always going to get passed on to the press and now he will face questioning from prosecutors as to whom he meant by this sage Captain, who was in charge of him and everyone else as they managed the biggest heist in history?
The world of course knows the answer. It is none other than the self-proclaimed “Bugis Pirate”, Jho Low’s ‘Big Boss’, the Crime Minister Najib Razak!
Crawling flattery is never pretty for others to behold and in this case it certainly wasn’t sensible either.
Malaysians will moreover be furious to see how this band of conspirators are praising themselves and their boss prematurely, in the expectation of having got away scott free, whilst Kevin Morais (whose birthday ought to have been celebrated today) and Hussain Najadi suffered horrible deaths associated with this crime and the rest of the country are forced to pay back thousands of ringgit per family to fund the cavorting and excesses of the likes of the Lows.

Malaysia Is The Loser Not Lena Hendry!

23 March 2017

Komas programme manager Lena Hendry was fined RM10,000 or ordered to spend a year in jail by a magistrate’s court in Kuala Lumpur today for screening the documentary on the Sri Lankan civil war titled ‘No Fire Zone’ four years ago.
Magistrate Mohd Rehan Mohd Aris said he made the decision after considering the mitigating factors.
Hendry paid the fine later in the afternoon.
Earlier in court, she was ordered to pay the fine by today. This was after her lawyer New Sin Yew asked for a deferment for it to be paid tomorrow.
Hendry was found guilty on Feb 21, for screening the documentary at the Kuala Lumpur and Selangor Chinese Chamber of Commerce Hall at Jalan Maharajalela in Kuala Lumpur, at 9pm on July 3, 2013.
She faced up to three years’ jail or a fine not exceeding RM30,000, under Section 6(1)(b) of the Film Censorship Act, 2002.

Malaysia and indeed the Sri Lankan Government pay vast sums for PR and related services, usually from third-rate ex-British journalists, each year.
Yet for just RM10,000 Lena Hendry has achieved not just national but world-wide publicity for a film about a subject that deserves to be known about, but which Sri Lanka would rather cover up.
What’s more she has internationally further exposed the hypocrisy and corrupt thuggishness of Najib Razak’s own government in the process.
Thankfully, the judges showed more sense than government prosecutors, by commuting her punishment to a fine. However, also in the process they revealed how Malaysia’s primitive legal system still allows for one punishment for the rich and one for the poor.
If Lena could not put her hand immediately into her pocket to find that RM10,000 (a small sum for any BN party aparachik) she would have been cast into jail for a year for showing that film. Friends will doubtless assist in this case, but such disgusting discrimination against the already impoverished will dismay all decent people.

cakap cakap...Hard to be a Malay too!

First posted Sunday, 15 May 2011

Last week this Chinese guy was putting in his two cents worth about how hard it is to be a Chinese in Malaysia. Aisehman if you think being a Chinese in Malaysia is hard let me give you my five cents worth (we Malays must always be one up on the Chinese lah!) about being a Malay in Malaysia!

Let us start with the easy one first. What is the most stupid thing that has ever happened in our country? Maybe some of you Malays have to think hard about this (see how even a Malay makes fun of the Malays!) but I know the Chinese will be clamouring to put in their two cents worth on this matter. It must surely be the theft of the two spare General Electric J85-21A engines for the RMAF Northrop Grumman F-5E Tiger II jet fighters – each worth RM$50million. Now who was the head honcho in the RMAF at that time? A Malay! Who was the Minister of Defence at that time? A Malay! Who was the Prime Minister at that time? A  Malay!......siapa malu…we Malays lah! Yes two Indians were charged in connection with the theft but you know and I know that nothing gets done in RMAF and MINDEF unless the Malays give the thumbs up! 

Next in line is that unfortunate situation when our self proclaimed First Lady “doctored” her own image to make her look as young as Ziana Zain…. maybe even younger if the reports coming in from malicious sources are to be believed! This First Lady happens to be a …MALAY! And again the non-Malays are shaking his or her heads as to how this Malay First Lady could think that air brushing 40 years away could fool anybody. I know that you Chinese can say that there were plenty of Malays who were laughing with the Chinese on this one….yes we did laugh but inside still hurting so much lah!!!!

If you Chinese think that you all are suffering a lot of pain because of the Ketuanan Melayu thing please consider this: We have Ibrahim Ali as our so-called champion!!!!! Aisehman will you walk behind this son of Ibrahim even if he decides to champion Ketuanan China? No thank you! But for now we Malays are stuck with having him as our Hang Tuah for Ketuanan Melayu…complete with headgear and keris too! It now seems that he is about to call a Jihad against the non-Malays. Aiyah as a Malay where can I hide myself from this later day Hang Tuah?   

I can go on and on about this “hard to be a Malay” stuff but I think that is enough for now. I sure hope that some Indians, Dayak or Iban will come up with their two cents worth on this matter too! I am sure being an Indian, Iban or Dayak is also hard....please share with us the cross you guys have to bear!
