Yang Tinggal Hanyalah Kekosongan Di Antara Sepasang Telinga

Beruk cimpanzi mempunyai nilai IQ bersamaan 40.  Manusia yang normal mempunyai IQ di antara 90 hingga 109.  Sekiranya anda mempunyai IQ yang kurang dari 80, maka IQ anda hanya sedikit lebih baik dari IQ seekor cimpanzi. Oleh sebab itu cimpanzi mudah diajar menggunakan “flash cards” ataupun “kotak.”  Mari kita tonton video ini:

Seronok, kan?

Baiklah.  Pada hari ini saya ingin menceritakan bagaimana Malaysia dikatakan telah menjual PETRONAS ataupun Projek RAPID di Pengerang kepada Arab Saudi sepertimana yang dinyatakan oleh beberapa tokoh Pakatan termasuk dengan para penyokong mereka.

Contoh pertama:

Cuba teka. Berapakah nilai IQ makhluk ini?
Cuba teka. Berapakah nilai IQ makhluk ini?

Adakah Malaysia telah menjual sebanyak 50 peratus saham Projek RAPID seperti yang didakwa oleh makhluk di atas?

Kita katakan kotak di bawah mewakili keseluruhan Projek RAPID:

square

Projek RAPID ini membabitkan pembinaan kilang penapis minyak mentah, pemisah nafta yang akan menghasilkan kira-kira tiga juta tan etilena, propilena, C4 dan C5 olefin (melalui proses yang dikenali sebagai “cracking”) setahun dan sebuah kompleks polimer dan petrokimia yang boleh mengeluarkan pelbagai bahan kimia berkaitan.

Projek ini juga mengandungi projek pembinaan terminal laut dalam, terminal regasifikasi (penukaran cecair kepada gas), terminal LNG, projek unit pengasing udara, projek pembekalan air mentah dan lain-lain.

Supaya cimpanzi-cimpanzi faham dengan lebih mudah, kita bahagikan kotak di atas kepada empat seperti di bawah:

boxes

Sekarang kotak di atas dibahagikan kepada A, B, C dan D yang mewakili kesemua projek-projek yang saya sebutkan di atas, yang dijalankan atau bakal dijalankan di Projek RAPID.

Untuk memudahkan cimpanzi-cimpanzi memahami perwakilan petak-petak kecil di atas, kita katakan bahawa projek penapisan minyak mentah dan “cracking” adalah diwakili oleh Petak ‘C’.  Secara kebetulan, huruf ‘C’ juga ialah huruf awalan untuk Cimpanzi.

Saudi Aramco telah membeli sebanyak 50 peratus dari saham Petak ‘C’ dengan nilai RM31 billion.  Maka, Petak ‘C’ kini menunjukkan pegangan saham sebanyak 50 peratus milik Saudi Aramco dan 50 peratus lagi milik PETRONAS.

boxes

Soalan saya sekarang ialah, bagaimana makhluk di atas, yang mewakili makhluk-makhluk yang sewaktu dengannya, boleh mencanangkan penipuan bodoh bahawa Projek RAPID kini 50 peratus milik Saudi?

Kebodohan ini juga terbit semasa makhluk-makhluk tersebut mencanangkan bahawa satu aset strategik tentera telah dijual kepada China. Bila terbukti bahawa dakwaan mereka itu satu penipuan yang nyata, mereka marah, tetapi tidak boleh memberi hujah berfakta untuk menidakkan kebodohan mereka itu.

Yang canang bodoh, yang sokong pencanang pun sama bodoh.

Saya kira anda faham dengan penjelasan mudah yang telah diberikan di atas.  Saya yakin anda mempunyai nilai IQ sebanyak 90 ataupun lebih.

Cimpanzi pun mungkin akan faham sebab saya menggunakan contoh kotak, iaitu satu cara paling berkesan untuk mengajar cimpanzi.

Sekiranya tidak, samalah anda dengan makhluk di atas, dan di bawah.

The Best Time To Sue On The RM2.6 Billion Donation

King Salman Abdulaziz Al-Saud salutes the colours
King Salman Abdulaziz Al-Saud salutes the colours

King Salman Abdulaziz Al-Saud of Saudi Arabia arived in Kuala Lumpur for a four-day state visit yesterday, making Malaysia his first choice of nation to visit since taking over the throne from King Abdullah Abdulaziz Al-Saud who died two years ago.  His visit is the third to Malaysia by any Saudi King.

The first visit by a Saudi King was in 1970 by the late King Faisal Abdulaziz Al-Saud, followed by the late King Abdullah Abdulaziz Al-Saud in 2006.  No Saudi King visited Malaysia for 36 years between 1970 to 2006.

Unbeknownst to many, Malaysia especially under the current administration is looked upon with high respect in the global scene, thanks to the tireless diplomacy conducted by both Prime Minister Najib Razak and Foreign Minister Anifah Aman.  Saudi would contact Malaysia at least every fortnightly to consult on many things including on matters involving the Middle East.  Malaysia’s stance on the Middle East countries, for example,  plays a huge role on how Saudi shapes its foreign policy.

It is of no surprise then when King Salman announced at the state banquet in his honour at the Istana Negara that Saudi is prepared to render Malaysia assistance to the latter’s initiatives to help Muslims.

We are ready to extend assistance and all resources that we have to help Malaysia realise its efforts to help other Muslims,” he said.

A day prior to King Salman’s arrival, U-Turn Mahathir made a veiled reference to the Saudi King, accusing him of lying and giving Malaysia money in want for something in return.

In 2015, Saudi Arabia donated a total of USD 115 billion to help 90 nations around the world.  The USD700 million given to Malaysia back in 2013 is not even one percent of the amount.

Furthermore, even ABC Australia’s investigative documentary ‘Four Corners‘ confirmed in 2016 that the USD700 million had nothing to do with 1MDB-linked companies.  The only allegation made which the US Department of Justice had based its investigation on was by U-Turn Mahathir’s errand-boy Khairuddin.

The Four Corners report confirms what the Prime Minister has maintained all along, and what multiple lawful authorities concluded after exhaustive investigations: the funds were a donation from the Royal Family of Saudi Arabia.”

I am surprised that none of those who accused Najib of soliciting the RM2.6 billion (USD700 million) donation for himself has held a placard at the Parliament building to ask where has the donated money gone to.  Mahathir was not at the state banquet – it was the best opportunity for him to ask in person about the donation.

Pak Lah, U-Turn Mahathir's successor however can be seen on the far right in this picture of King Salman being conferred the highest award by the Yang DiPertuan Agong. This underscores the notion that U-Turn Mahathir is a persona non grata at the Istana

Even blabber-mouth Tony Pua is evidently and conveniently missing, choosing to be away from Malaysia when the Saudi King is here.

Lari! So that no one could ask "Why didn't you ask about the RM2.6 billion?"
Lari! So that no one could ask “Why didn’t you ask about the RM2.6 billion?”

Every detractor has gone missing or in hiding or crying beneath the shower as the best opportunity to hand over a suit over the “missing” RM2.6 billion slowly disappears.

This IS the best time to sue, people.  Not only did the Saudi Royal Family give RM2.6 billion, it has now brought RM62.26 billion on this trip!  Show some balls! This is the time!

Then again, if even Pakatan’s de facto leader U-Turn Mahathir dared not reveal the identity of the person he accused, what chance do you think his coward minions would dare to show the top of their head?

Sever The Ties

VX is an extremely toxic substance which has no other use except as a chemical warfare nerve agent. Whoever is exposed to the agent must wash off the agent using household bleach and lots of water, and should immediately be given diazepam, atropine and pralidoxime intramuscular injections.

For the VX nerve agent to be transported safely to KLIA2 for the attack, it would have to be in a binary form, mixed during the attack itself.

Kim Jong Nam would have died painfully from asphyxiation after suffering violent muscular contractions and diaphragm muscle paralysis.

The above is the most plausible reason for Kang Chol to have pre-empted everything by attacking the Royal Malaysian Police’s and Ministry of Health’s credibility even before the autopsy is completed.

The above would also underscore the fact that the two women from Indonesia and Vietnam are not innocent as claimed.  They were seen immediately rushing off to the nearest restroom facility after the attack to wash off traces of the agent from their hands.

Malaysis has signed and ratified the Chemical Weapons Convention that came into effect in 1997, and also the Protocol for the Prohibition of the Use in War of Asphyxiating, Poisonous or other Gases, and of Bacteriological Methods of Warfare or commonly known as the Geneva Protocol.

The use of a chemical weapon on Malaysian soil, as well as the rude outbursts by the Ambassador of North Korea to Malaysia shows North Korea’s blatant disregard for Malaysian laws and breached Article 41(1) of the Vienna Convention for Diplomatic Relations of 1961.

Malaysia exported RM17.54 million worth of goods (mainly palm oil, rubber and medical products) to North Korea while importing only RM5.18 million (iron and steel products) from the hermit state in 2015. There are 300 North Koreans working in the coal mines of Sarawak.

As the only country in the world to have been accorded a visa-free status by North Korea, very few Malaysians have ever made use of the facility.

While Malaysia is a country that warms up to every country and values its friendship, the same cannot be said about North Korea.

Myanmar’s diplomatic relations with North Korea was once far more meaningful than the one currently enjoyed by Malaysia.  However, in trying to assassinate the then-South Korean President, North Korea pushed diplomacy aside and planted a bomb in Yangon in 1983 which killed 20 people but did not kill President Chun Doo Hwan.

Myanmar broke off diplomatic relations for a decade following the attack on its soil.

Now, it has caused anger to the country it courted in 1973 and established formal diplomatic relations in 1993.  There is no telling what North Korea is capable of doing to or in Malaysia given its disrespect for the laws and regulations of the latter.

I doubt that we would lose much if we were to sever our diplomatic ties with North Korea.  Our trade volume is only RM25 million.  Even Perlis as the smallest state in Malaysia made RM88.3 billion in GSP in 2015!

North Korea is no friend and has never valued any friendship.  It should be left to live and die alone.

How DAP Privatises Everything For The People

Is DAP selling Selangor and Penang to China?

The following revelation was made by Miss Lim Sian See:

DAP had recently announced that in GE14 they will be using “Delivered As Promise” as their election message for GE14.

Other than the bunch of repeated lying propaganda long debunked such as “we reduced debt by 90%”, Chow Kon Yeow in his “Delivered As Promised” message claimed that one of their achievement was fixing KOMTAR.
He then went on to claim “We built KOMTAR Tech Dome for our children”.

Penang Tech Dome

However, they did not build that. It was built by a private company which charges kids (5 years to 12 years) RM15, Students RM20 and adults RM25 per entry.
Compare this to the much larger National Science Center in KL which charges all kids and students RM3 per entry and adults at RM6.
Make no mistake, the Tech Dome that DAP claimed they built was not “for our children” but a private enterprise out to make a profit.
Also, Chow forgot to mention that since they had also privatized KOMTAR for the next 60 years, the Penang people now have to pay RM88 per adult and RM48 for kids to view their own city’s skyline when before they could watch it for free since KOMTAR as a state government building previously belonged to them?
Additionally, Chow forgot to mention that DAP also privatized Penang’s oldest historical site, Sir Francis Light’s Fort Cornwallis built in 1786, for the next 35 years at a rate of only RM30.000 per month.
Not to mention the billions and billions of state land and state assets sold to private developers since 2008.
Yes. DAP has “Delivered as Promised”. 
But what DAP did not say is that they delivered Penang, its land and its assets to private hands and developers.

Maha F

Hari ini, U-Turn Maha F didapati masih cuba mengulangi pembohongan lamanya, suatu perbuatan yang amat tidak sesuai dengan usia yang sudah hampir sebelum beliau pulang menemui Anubis, dewa kematian Mesir Kuno.

Dalam tweet yang diperolehi dari akaun beliau, beliau mendakwa Malaysia telah menjadi antara negara kesepuluh teratas dalam senarai negara-negara paling korup menurut Kerala Transparent Loincloth Index yang tidak digunapakai di mana-mana tempat termasuk di Kerala.

Siakap senohong, gelama ikan berduri. Dengan rakyat bohong, untuk kayakan kroni

Mengikut Transparency International, dari 176 buah negara, sepuluh negara yang mempunyai persepsi rasuah paling teratas pada tahun 2016 adalah seperti berikut:


Sekiranya anda nampak nama Malaysia tersenarai di antara negara-negara di atas, sila hubungi saya untuk menerima hadiah.


Berikutan tweet tersebut, orang tua yang sudah lewat senja umurnya itu dikecam hebat oleh lain-lain orang. Sebagai contoh:


Malangnya buat @riazsalam1 U-Turn Maha F tidak percaya akan siksaan kubur, syurga-neraka, pahala-dosa, dan Allah SWT sebab kesemua itu tidak boleh dilihat dengan mata kasar (intangible, kata orang kampung).

Tidak seperti Anubis yang boleh dilihat di muzium-muzium terkemuka.

Be A Peacemaker

Seow Poh Hing's "Harmony"
Seow Poh Hing’s “Harmony”

Two nights ago I sat at a dinner table with four other strangers.  One gentleman from the North is five years older than I am while the rest were in their 40s.  What the gentleman in his 50s and I spoke about was of the way the various races interacted in the early 1970s fresh after the most devastating racial clashes in the history of Malaysia.

Those were the times when we all looked at each other as family rather than by race or religion.  We went to school together and played together.

Interestingly, the gentleman is a Senior Pastor, his wife, while the rest at the table were Muslims.  Apart from my wife and I, one was from Jabatan Agama Islam Selangor, the other was from PAS.

There were people of other faiths as well such as Sikh, Hindu, and the Buddhist.  Church representatives and members from Sabah and Sarawak, too, were there. What surprised me was the presence of representatives from PERKASA, MAPIM and ISMA including Ibrahim Ali.

The Senior Pastor pointed out how children nowadays go to separate school and do not speak the same language. To bring about unity, children must grow up together and speak the same language.  The Senior Pastor is Chinese.  He still enjoys the company of his former school mates who are mostly Malay whenever he goes back to his hometown.

We were at the 2nd National Peace and Harmony Dinner organised by the Christians for Peace and Harmony in Malaysia CPHM) that was a full-house affair.

I wrote about unity not too long ago (Lighting The Wrong Path – 6 September 2016) and touched on the importance of children growing up together, speaking the same language, and the importance of understanding the Federal Constitution.  While I gave the nation at least three generation before we could see some form of unity, the Senior Pastor was very sceptical.  Schools have become places to divide our children according to their ethnicity – something that was rare in my days although existed.  For as long as we do not unite our children, we will continue to be diversified and divided.

 

Chairman of the CPHM, Reverend Wong Kim Jong in his speech called for a better understanding of all faiths and races, and better unity among Malaysians.

He even went on to propose a National Mediation Council be formed to settle misunderstandings and disputes between religions and races.

In his keynote address to the CPHM, Prime Minister Najib Razak quoted a verse from the Bible:

“Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God” – Matthew 5:9

He said in order for Malaysia to achieve its target of becoming a top 20 nation by 2050, as envisioned under the 2050 Transformation Plan (TN50), Malaysians must become true believers of their respective faiths as he answer to becoming a great nation lies in the teachings of every religion which promotes harmony and peace.

To become a top 20 nation by 2050, we need social harmony and one of the ways to achieve it is through faith. Go back to your own faith and the answers are all there. You must be a true believer no matter what your religion is, whether you’re a Christian, a Muslim or a Buddhist,” he added.

Quoting a Malay proverb “Tak kenal maka tak cinta” that was said by Ibrahim Ali during a previous meeting between PERKASA and CPHM, Najib said that there is a need for the people to understand one other in order for them to appreciate and love.

I would also like to emphasise on humility, or the importance of being humble. It means we must admit and accept our differences,” pointed Najib.

The Prime Minister also related how the forefathers discussed the social contract in the prelude to Merdeka and had ensured that although Islam is the religion of the Federation, the rights of those who practice other religions are protected in the Federal Constitution.

Therefore, understanding the spirit of the Federal Constitution is also very important to understand, appreciate and love.

I wrote at length about why the sanctity of Islam is regarded as being more sensitive in the Peninsular compared to in Sabah and Sarawak and had given the historical background to it.  I even wrote about the proposed amendments to the Syariah Courts (Criminal Jurisdiction) Act, 1965 and how it would not affect the non-Muslims.

I don’t have to agree with the proposed amendments but I have to defend the rights given to the Muslims to manage their own religious affairs as I would to other religions as well.

And Muslims especially in the Peninsular have a lot to learn from and emulate values shown by the congregation of both the Masjid An-Naim and the Parish of Good Shepherd that co-exist beautifully on Jalan Pasar Lutong in Miri, as well as that of the committee of the Masjid Saidina Abu Bakar As-Siddiq in Bangsar that held a Chinese New Year open house for all at its premise.

This is what is meant by understanding the Federal Constitution in order to gain respect, appreciation and love through the respect for others.

Of course there will be those who will continue to flog the issue as long as they can all laugh at the end of it when the very fabric of society is torn apart, such as the person below:

Ill-informed? Or just opposing for the sake of opposing?
Ill-informed? Or just opposing for the sake of opposing?

If the person above is a Christian, she is probably a Christian because it is trendy not to light up joss sticks for dead relatives or parents.  A true believer would believe in the Bible and especially Romans 13 that calls for the respect for the auhorities as they have been placed there by God.

The above verse is the same as in the Quran (An-Nisaa’ 59) that calls for obedience to authority.

Those who do not subscribe to the above are NOT peacemakers. And for Christians, they are not the children of God, but of His antithesis.

As said in the Bible:

“If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless.” – James 1:26

So you can choose whether to be a peacemaker, and if you’re a Christian be a child of God, or, you can be the child of the antithesis of God as people like the above.

Your choice.
