AirAsia X: Jawapan Saya Kepada BERNAMA

Tengahari tadi pihak BERNAMA mengajukan soalan kepada saya mengenai pendapat sesetengah pihak yang mempertikaikan Juruterbang pesawat menggalakkan para penumpang penerbangan D7 237 untuk berdoa. Berikutnya adalah jawapan saya:

Untuk memahami keadaan krew dan pesawat kita perlu fahami jenis kecemasan yang dihadapi pesawat.

Pesawat jenis Airbus A330 sememangnya boleh berlepas, terbang dan mendarat dengan hanya menggunakan sebelah enjin. Namun ianya sekiranya bilah kipas enjin yang dipadamkan adalah berada dalam keadaan terimbang.
Dalam keadaan penerbangan AirAsia X D7 237 salah satu bilah kipas turbin telah patah dan menghentam salah satu oil pump dan merosakkan sistem hidraulik sebelum “ditelan” (ingested) oleh enjin. Apa lagi kerosakan yang dialami enjin tersebut tidak diketahui.
Ketidak seimbangan bilah kipas ini mengakibatkan gegaran teruk kepada rangka pesawat dan tindakan seterusnya ialah untuk juruterbang mematikan enjin tersebut dan berpatah balik.

Namun untuk dua jam seterusnya gegaran yang kurang sedikit kekuatannya masih berlaku kerana satu fenomena yang digelar “efek kincir angin” di mana bilah kipas tersebut diputarkan oleh angin akibat pesawat itu menujah ke hadapan.
Walau bagaimanapun, disebabkan ianya tidak berputar secara seimbang, satu lagi fenomena yang dikenali sebagai ‘dynamic spillage’ membentuk satu kon udara di hadapan enjin tersebut berlawanan dengan udara yang ditolak ke belakang oleh tujahan tersebut.
Keadaan ini boleh mengakibatkan kemungkinan ‘mounting bolt fatigue’ dan seterusnya tertanggalnya enjin tersebut. Ketidak seimbangan ini boleh berakhir dengan malapetaka besar.
Kehilangan enjin akan mengakibatkan kerosakan ‘fuel lines’, ‘electrical lines’ yang amat diperlukan oleh pesawat untuk terus terbang turun.
Kini rangka pesawat itu juga akan diberi pemeriksaan terperinci untuk menentukan ianya selamat untuk diterbangkan semula.
Juruterbang tersebut faham akan keadaan tersebut dan memberitahu para penumpang bahawa keadaan di geladak penerbangan adalah terkawal namun sekiranya ada yang ingin mendoakan keselamatan boleh berbuat sedemikian.
Apa peliknya berdoa sedangkan banyak lagi syarikat penerbangan yang memainkan video doa Musafir sebelum penerbangan termasuk British Airways untuk penerbangan khas Haji dan Umrah.
Lazimnya yang sering mempersoalkan keperluan doa adalah dari kalangan orang yang tidak beragama.

Bila Rantai Dilepaskan

Selamat kita menjalani ibadah puasa selama sebulan di dalam bulan Ramadhan di mana syaitan-syaitan diikat dengan rantai.

Tatkala anak bulan Syawal kelihatan, maka berakhirlah bulan Ramadhan semasa masuknya waktu Maghrib, dan dengan itu syaitan-syaitan dilepaskan dari ikatan.

Dan dari sebelum kewujudan Adam itu lagi, hamba Allah yang digelar Iblis telah memohon kebenaran daripada Allah ‘Azza Wa Jalla untuk menyesatkan manusia dan didatangkan dalam berbagai rupa kepada manusia.


Seorang bekas menteri yang merupakan budak suruhan parti DAP yang juga bekas ahli parti PKR dan presiden parti KITA telah mengkritik tindakan juruterbang pesawat Air Asia X yang meminta para penumpang mendoakan keselamatan mereka apabila enjin sebelah kiri pesawat tersebut mengalami kerosakan 90 minit setelah berlepas dari Perth, Australia.

Kata beliau, sekiranya Kapten pesawat tersebut mahu berdoa, eloklah Air Asia menggajikan seorang Imam.

Dalam reaksi balas terhadap kenyataan Zaid Ibrahim itu, Ahli Parlimen Pasir Mas Nik Mohamad Abduh Nik Abdul Aziz menyelar Zaid.

Saya cuba mengagak bila Datuk Zaid Ibrahim berdoa kepada tuhannya? Bila saatnya?


Pesawat Airbus A330 tersebut telah mengalami kerosakan enjin di sebelah kiri (Enjin No.1) yang bukan sahaja telah mengakibatkan gegaran teruk kepada rangka pesawat malah mengakibatkan pesawat tersebut tidak dapat mengekalkan paras ketinggian penerbangannya.

Gegaran ini berterusan walaupun setelah enjin dipadamkan akibat fenomena yang digelar ‘windmill effect‘ di mana udara yang melalui bilah kipas turbin enjin yang dimatikan menyebabkan putaran kipas berterusan (free-wheeling) yang menghasilkan gegaran.

Gegaran berterusan ini boleh juga menyebabkan enjin tersebut tertanggal dari sayap, atau mengoyakkan hos minyak (fuel lines) atau merosakkan sistem elektrik yang kritikal.

Kehilangan enjin melalui tertanggalnya enjin tersebut dari sayap boleh mengakibatkan malapetaka yang amat sukar dielak dan menyebabkan kehilangan kesemua nyawa krew dan penumpang pesawat tersebut.

Kerosakan enjin tersebut dipercayai telah  diakibat oleh kegagalan struktur salah satu bilah kipas turbin enjin tersebut yang telah tertanggal dan kemudiannya memusnahkan sebuah pam minyak (oil pump) dan sistem hidraulik sebelum ‘ditelan’ oleh enjin tersebut dan menyebabkan lain-lain kerosakan.

Kerosakan seumpama ini dikategorikan sebagai satu insiden yang amat serius kerana hampir mengakibatkan kehilangan pesawat serta nyawa krew dan penumpang.

Maka, adalah berpatutan Kapten pesawat, selain meminta para penumpang mematuhi arahan anak-anak kapal, juga meminta agar mereka mendoakan keselamatan mereka semua.

Inilah yang dipersoalkan oleh Zaid kerana bagi diri beliau, ianya seolah-olah Kapten pesawat telah pasrah dan tidak lagi mahu ambik tindakan kecemasan, dan berserah kepada tuhan untuk menentukan nasib mereka pada ketika itu.

Mungkin Zaid lebih cenderung kepada menyuruh mereka berbuat apa jua yang dapat menghiburkan hati mereka termasuk mungkin juga meminum sebanyak mungkin minuman beralkohol yang mungkin dijual di dalam pesawat tersebut.

Sekurang-kurangnya mereka akan mati dalam keadaan gembira seperti mereka di dalam gambar berikut ini.


Sebab itu saya katakan, syaitan akan menjelma dalam berbagai rupa. Dan mereka bebas kembali menghasut anak Adam dengan berakhirnya Ramadhan.

Dunce Accumulating Party – Part 3

Do you still remember Ting Tiong Choon, the Australian with the bak chang face who duped the idiots living in Pujut into voting for him into office last year?

He claims that his removal from the Sarawak State Assembly is a political conspiracy.

Yes, the bak chang-faced Australian claims that it was a political conspiracy that had him ejected as an ADUN.


This conspiracy would have begun eight years before Ah Choon was born. Those who drafted the Federal Constitution knew that Ah Choon would be born in Malaysia on the 31st October 1965, and then apply for a PR status in Australia on 5 May 1994 after entering the country using a student visa on 7 May 1994.

However, he had his application rejected on 3 April 1995. In 2007 and 2008, Ah Choon bought substantial number of properties and set up many companies, and then applied for an Australian citizenship under the INVESTMENT category.

You can read more about it here.

That is how advanced the political conspirators were.

It did not sound as if Ah Choon had Malaysia’s interests at heart, nor the intention to return as a Malaysian to help Sarawakians as claimed.

The moment you take up another country’s citizenship you lose your Malaysian one. It is that simple.

And as a foreigner, you cannot contest in Malaysia’s elections, state or federal.

You cannot contest in Australia too if you are a foreign citizen.


Perhaps Ah Choon cannot read because he is perhaps an Ah Beng.

Or perhaps it is a DAP political conspiracy to field a foreign phantom candidate and then act stupid and lay the blame on the Barisan Nasional.

DAP after all is filled with criminals and lawbreakers.

In Bed With Criminals

Tokong Lim asked what is PAS still doing being part of the Selangor state government when it (PAS) has severed political cooperation with PKR.

Wouldn’t a couple be committing aduktery if they slept together after a divorce?” he asked, probably reminded by a habit frequently repeated his Chinese-disguised-as-a-Malay officer.

I often wonder why is DAP in bed with two people whom they severely criticised when they were of no political benefit to the DAP?

Take for example, Anwar Ibrahim, whom DAP insinuated as being a hardcore racist back when he was UMNO but quickly embraced him when they saw the Malay support he could muster at the peak of the ‘Reformasi‘ movement 19 years ago.

Just before that, the late Karpal Singh even went on to insinuate Anwar Ibrahim as being a sodomist in Parliament.

Then Emperor Lim also asked Mahathir to apologise for the rampant corruption, cronyism and nepotism during his premiership.

But the DAP is most forgiving because Mahathir is an old mule that could still serve DAP’s purpose.

Of course DAP maintains all digital records of their leadership lambasting Mahathir because when an old mule is no longer of any use, they can kill it.

The DAP would do anything including sleeping with criminals, go against the Federal Constitution and breach laws just so it can have power.

When Tokong Lim was investigated for corrupt practices, rabbit-teeth Tony Pua said the former must go on leave if charged in court for corruption.

Then in an about turn, he said that there is no need for Tokong Lim to go on leave until he has been found guilty. Otherwise, he would have to go on leave just because of baseless accusations.


Five months earlier forked-tongue Tony said that Najib Razak should resign for being implicated in the 1MDB probe.

Najib Razak has been cleared by the tripartite investigation teams of any wrongdoing regarding 1MDB and unlike ex-convict Lim Guan Eng, was never charged in court.


Recently, a DAP state lawmaker was purged out of the Sarawak state assembly for being a naturalised foreign citizen.

It is unbelievably that the DAP leadership would not know the Elections Act as well as the Federal Constitution’s articles on taking up another country’s citizenship.

But of course the DAP is in the business of duping the rakyat into believing that it is fighting for the rakyat when all they want is the power and to be in positions where they can make money out of the rakyat.

Else why should there be fundraising dinners to fund Empurau dishes and also a RM305 million never-completed study for a tunnel?

DAP is just a bed of crooks, and those who voted for them a a bunch of stupid monkeys.

Dunce Accumulating Party

A dunce refers to a person incapable of learning.

In short, a moron.

And the DAP is filled to the brim with it. Let us start with evangelist Nga Kor Ming whose response to PAS severing ties with PKR is to say that the PAS Ulama use religion as a front.


Now wait a minute. Aren’t ulama supposed to use religion for their reasonings? What else are they supposed to use? Home science?

But this speaking before the brain neurons could connect is a character very peculiar to Nga Kor Ming.

However, the statement below is true.


And I say that the DAP is filled to the brim with morons such as Nga Kor Ming simply because they call themselves lawmakers and want to govern this country.

Yet they know nothing about the Federal Constitution or the laws of the land when they fight, as they claim, for their rights.

For example, they are willing to breach the Federal Constitution when they select their election candidates.

Enter someone from the DAP known in Australia as Dr Tiong Ting otherwise known as former Pujut state assemblyman Dr Ting Tiong Choon.


Ting found himself the target of attacks last year when someone claimed that he is in fact a naturalised Australian citizen.


Today, it has been proven that Ting had taken up an Australian citizenship which automatically annuls his citizenship of Malaysia as per Article 24(1) of the Federal Constitution.

He is an Australian citizen who had contested in one of OUR state elections!


Yet, in a press conference aired on the DAP’s Facebook Ting said that although he had taken up an Australian citizenship, he never lost his Malaysian citizenship.


Seriously?

And this is the person you voted into office and expect him to fight for your rights according to the Federal Constitution?

What is wrong with you people?

Now you can see that even the so-called learned leaders and LAWYERS in the DAP are ignorant of the Constitution!

Either that, or they would breach the Constitution and break laws as long as they come into power.

And that, my friends, is dangerous as you would be coting in people who advocate lawlessness. In simple language – gangsters.

As for Ting Tong, he can go sit in the corner until he grows a brain.


It makes me wonder now – what kind of monkeys is TalentCorp bringing back?

4 Conmen

4 Corners? Is that the thing that produced a show on Najib for Australia’s ABC recently?

It seems that Mahathir has lost it totally and is reduced to the role of a vinyl record with a scratch, repeating the same things over and over again.

Let us see what Salleh Said Keruak has to say about the TV story highlighting stale and pathetic issues:

STATEMENT ON ABC’S ‘FOUR CORNERS’ BY MINISTER OF COMMUNICATIONS

30 March 2016
The Four Corners programme is another attempt by Tun Mahathir to use Western media as part of his Anti-Najib Campaign. Having lost his attempt to topple the Prime Minister in UMNO and in Parliament, Tun Mahathir has no option left but to exploit other channels like Western media, whom he vilified when in power, and join forces with political opponents like Lim Kit Siang, whom he jailed when in power. 

 

Unfortunately, the journalists accepted the narrative they were presented hook, line and sinker. Weaving together a disparate set of events, they interviewed only Tun Mahathir and members of his Anti-Najib Campaign, who have publicly confirmed their intention to overthrow a democratically-elected government. There is no attempt at balance, and no proof provided to justify the wild claims.
The facts are:
1. Hussain Najadi had no involvement with AmBank since the 1980s. The Prime Minister’s accounts were opened in 2011. By then, Mr Najadi had not been part of Ambank for nearly thirty years, and had no involvement whatsoever in the accounts. Authorities such as the Royal Malaysian Police have confirmed that Mr Najadi never lodged any reports related to the Prime Minister’s accounts while he was alive. The murder of Mr Najadi was comprehensively investigated by the police and court process has taken place. There was no link whatsoever to the Prime Minister. 
2. Kevin Morais’ employer, the Attorney General, has publicly confirmed that Mr Morais was never involved in any investigation relating to 1MDB or the Prime Minister. Furthermore, Mr Morais was transferred from the Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission to the Attorney General’s Chambers in July 2014, a year before the investigation into 1MDB was even launched. It was therefore physically impossible for Mr Morais to have written any 1MDB-related charge sheet. His murder has been comprehensively investigated by the police, following which individuals were charged and will be tried in court. One of those charged was investigated by Mr Morais, but the case had no link to 1MDB or the Prime Minister. 
3. Regarding Altantuya Sharibuu, the Prime Minister has made clear that he did not know, had never met, had never had any communication with and had no link whatsoever with her. Comprehensive legal process has taken place, including police investigations and court trials, including at Malaysia’s High Court, Court of Appeal and Federal Court. At no point during any of these legal stages was the Prime Minister implicated, even indirectly. The two guilty parties have been convicted and sentenced. They were not the Prime Minister’s personal guards – this is an intentionally misleading allegation that has been used to create false conspiracy theories. They were members of a police unit that provides rotating security for government officials and visiting dignitaries. The Prime Minister was not aware of the actions of the individuals until their arrest. 
It has been confirmed by the police, public prosecutor and the courts that these three tragic deaths were in no way linked to the Prime Minister. As these murders have undergone comprehensive police investigations and court process, these malicious allegations are therefore an affront not just to the Prime Minister, but also to Malaysia’s police, judiciary and criminal justice system as a whole. 
Tun Mahathir and the Anti-Najib Campaign have been trying to attack the Prime Minister on these issues for years. But there is absolutely no evidence of any wrongdoing, and there never will be – because these allegations are entirely false smears motivated by political gain.
DATUK SERI PANGLIMA DR SALLEH SAID KERUAK

MINISTER OF COMMUNICATIONS AND MULTIMEDIA‎

Repeating issues is nothing new if it comes from Mahathir. He must have learnt it from someone who used to work for someone like him – a dictator. The name of the person was Paul Joseph Goebbles.

The following picture sums Mahathir up:

Xenophonbia Justified

Within the hour of writing this posting, the Australian Foreign Minister, Bob Carr, will be issuing a statement on the denial of entry of Independent Senator Nicholas Xenophon into Malaysia.  According to some friends in Australia, “they have made it into such a big thing over here.”

Perhaps, news agencies in Australia, in particular Sky News Australia, should stop being superficial as their superficial reporting shows their inability to engage in journalistic rigor, comprehend complexity or maintain impartiality.  Else their journos could come and join me write for this blog pro bono perhaps in the classifieds section.  Well, I have no classifieds section.

Now, please understand the following:

nickxenophon

Xenophon is being denied entry for being a “security threat” to Malaysia.  Let us not forget that Xenophon, as an Australian diplomat, broke local law for being directly involved in the BERSIH 3.0 demonstration.  The Malaysian Peaceful Assembly Act 2012 specifically mentions in Section 4(2)(a) that a person commits an offence if being a non-citizen, he organizes or participates in an assembly and should be liable to a fine not exceeding ten thousand Ringgit.  Of course, being Malaysian and hospitable even to foreign lawbreakers, he was allowed to go home without receiving much hassle, let alone a 10 sen fine.

Isn’t Xenophon then a diplomat, and are diplomats not immune from prosecution?

Firstly, Article 41 para 1 of the Geneva Convention on Diplomatic Relations, 1961 clearly states that it is the duty of all persons enjoying the privileges and immunities to respect the laws and regulations of the receiving State and have a duty not to interfere in the internal affairs of that State.  Xenophon went against that by getting involved in the BERSIH 3.0 rally.

Xenophon has always maintained that his interest in free and fair elections in Malaysia started with the prosecution and subsequent acquittal of Anwar Ibrahim of the sodomy charge in Sodomy 2.0 (yes, we Malaysians have a release number for everything).  It does not mean that he did not do it.  As in Sodomy 1.0, Anwar was acquitted due to technical reasons and not because he did not participate in acts of sodomy.  Read the last four paragraphs of this report.

Perhaps, Sky News Australia should ask itself if there is no thriving democracy in Malaysia, how is it that demonstrations are allowed, and if elections aren’t free and fair, how was it possible that Anwar’s loose coalition won five of Malaysia’s states including two of Malaysia’s cash cow states (Penang and Selangor)?

Judging from Foreign Minister Bob Carr’s statement on the issue as well as reports by other Australian news agencies, Australia values its good relation with Malaysia, but it is the minority and people who get little backing from the Australian government such as Nick Xenophon, and Foxtel-owned Sky News Australia that continue to believe in the lies dished out by Anwar Ibrahim.  I hope they make time to interview all the founding members of Anwar’s Parti Keadilan Rakyat where even Anwar’s membership is a suspect.  All his comrades who joined him in 1998 have left save for his wife, daughter and his trusted lieutenant whose wife is reported to have had an affair with Anwar when the latter was still a Federal Minister.  And Xenophon’s constant meddling in the affairs of another State not only contravenes the Geneva Convention on Diplomatic Relations, 1961, but also displays his standard of being a diplomat against that of seasoned diplomats who would shy away from giving comments about their host State knowing the line that has been drawn by Article 41 of that Convention.

As such, Malaysia has the right to declare Nick Xenophon a persona non grata under Article 9 of the same Convention, and list him as an undesired person.  Australia as the sending State has no choice but to recall the person.  We, including Australian journalists, must remember that Article 9 of the Convention allows Malaysia to even declare Xenophon a non grata without explanation, and even before he arrives in Malaysian territory.

You have your laws, we have ours.  if you want others to respect your laws, learn to respect the laws of others.  You did not respect ours, Xenophon, now off you go.
