The Living Forest

Forest City’s “Island One”, as seen from the air,  is almost sold out
The development of Forest City, one of Johor’s iconic development on the western half of the southern coast of the state, is proceeding well and is on time.  When completed, the southern-most man-made island of the project will be just two kilometers away from Singapore’s Tuas.

A little over two years ago, the project area was under three meters deep of sea water.  Now, a hotel stands completed as do a commercial block as well as an office block, with a beach fronting Tuas.  Aptly named “Hotel Phoenix”, the 280-room four-star hotel has already begun to receive guests, and is now one of the favourite venues in southern Johor for international conferences and events.  Even Jack Ma’s Alibaba had an event here in late September 2017.

This 20-year development is already into its second year, but has been the subject of several controversies, depending on which side of the fence you are viewing the issue from.

700,000 New Citizens

One of the issues raised by the Opposition is the prospect of 700,000 mainland Chinese obtaining Malaysian citizenship after staying at Forest City for several years.  Opposition fear-mongers have been selling this idea to the worried locals who fear that their voice would be drowned by these prospective new citizens.

I threw this idea to an English friend of mine who is married to a Malay woman and have four children, to see if the fear is real.

Bo****ks!” he exclaimed, scoffing at the idea. “I’ve been married and staying here in Malaysia for 22 years now and I still haven’t got my citizenship.  If they think it’s that easy, I will gladly pay the person who could give me my Malaysian identity card.”

But will there actually be 700,000 Chinese from China residing at Forest City? Apparently not.  Buyers include people from the Middle East, Thailand, India and Singapore.  Forest City was already attracting these buyers even before China tightened the outflow of its currency.  Buyers from China have snapped up 70 percent of the early-sale properties there before the measure by China came into effect.

The number of withdrawals caused by the cashflow controls is about 60, compared with the 15,000-unit sales by the end of 2016, the bulk of which were sold to Chinese buyers. We have to look at the issue in perspective. If we are not confident about Forest City, we will not be investing some RM470 million to build a factory to manufacture ready-to-assemble concrete structures like staircases, beams and columns,” said Dr Yu Runze, President and Chief Strategy Officer of Country Garden Pacific View Sdn Bhd., the developer of the project.

Carving Out Malaysia’s Land To Make It China’s

As a state, Johor has jurisdiction of its land including the foreshore according to the National Land Code, 1965 and its territorial sea jutting out 3 nautical miles according to Section 3(3) of the Territorial Sea Act, 2012.

While Section 76 of the National Land Code includes a proviso that does not allow the foreshore and part of the sea bed to be disposed by the state authority for a period exceeding ninety-nine years, Forest City’s reclamation starts beyond the low-water mark of ordinary spring tides. Unlike the reclamations off Pulau Pinang, a bridge connects the man-made island to the mainland rendering it possible for the Johor state government to allow the developer to obtain a freehold status for the reclaimed portion, anything within the three-nautical mile limit.

Forest City is a reclaimed area off the Johor mainland. No part of the mainland is being given out to foreigners
Therefore, no part of the mainland was ever carved to become part of Forest City, nor was there a major displacement of people to make way for the apartment buildings and hotels of the development.  A freehold land does not mean that it belongs to another country. As mentioned, anything that is within 3 nautical miles including the seabed comes under the state authority while from that point up until 12 nautical miles comes under the Federal authority.  The state has the power to acquire the land under the Land Acquisition Act, 1960. hence the sovereignty of the nation is not compromised in any manner.

Forest City Is A China Project And Employs Only Chinese Citizens

The project is being developed by Country Garden Pacific View Sdn Bhd (CGPV), a Johor-China joint-venture company where the China partner has 60 percent equity in the JV, while the Malaysian partners hold 40.

CGPV Executive Director Datuk Md Othman Yusof and CGPV President and Chief Strategy Officer Dr Yu Renzu
CGPV executive director Datuk Md Othman Yusof said that as at end of September 2017, 859 out of 1397, or 61.4 percent of its workers are Malaysians.  This includes the staff at the CGPV Industrial Building System plant in Tanjung Kupang.

Datuk Othman said that it was a decree by His Majesty the Sultan of Johor himself that there should be at least 70 percent staff that are Malaysians.  “After only two years we already have 61.4 percent,” he added. “The only difficult part is getting Malaysians who could work as well under intense pressure on the construction side. Many joined but left as they could not match the discipline of the Chinese workers.”

Dr Yu added that of its RM4.7 billion (S$1.5 billion) capital expenditure (capex) spent between early 2015 and December 2016, about RM2 billion, or 42.55 per cent, was spent on the services provided by local consultancy firms and construction materials.

Cement, sand and other materials were bought locally. We did not import them from China. We also use consultancies such as law firms, planners and architects, to name some. So, it is untrue to say that Forest City has not benefited Malaysia or its people,” he remarked.

Forest City Is The Cause Of Pollution?

To blame the pollution of the Tebrau Strait solely on Forest City alone is not fair.  There was already pollution in that area because of the Port of Tanjung Pelepas (PTP), and 60-odd projects taking place along the Sungai Danga and Sungai Pulai which too affect the Tebrau Strait.

Dr Serina Rahman, co-founder of Kelab Alami, an environmental NGO based in Tanjung Kupang
According to Dr Serina Rahman of Kelab Alami, an environmental NGO based in Tanjung Kupang, intially the reclamation works for the Forest City project was worrisome as the waters off Tanjung Kupang is rich with marine life including sea grass.

The sea grass has spread to the left of the development where there is more water movement.  The seahorses are still there, the dugongs are still there, it’s just that they don’t come near the sand barges as they are noisy. There are other patches of sea grass closer to the port (PTP) so the dugongs are there,” she said in an interview.

The waters off this area isn’t deep.  Where Forest City is now was a place for the prawn fishermen to fish for prawns. When the reclamation started, their catch was affected,” she added. “However, the number of prawns have increased tremendously in this area and if you ask any of the fishermen, they will tell you that they are getting more prawns nowadays. Somehow, the sand that is being used to reclaim the area has brought more prawn species here. They may be invasive but I don’t think the fishermen are complaining.

According to Dr Yu, Forest City was planned as a single 20-square kilometer island.  “However, after doing the Environmental Impact Assessment we found that there is a huge patch of sea grass in the middle of where the island should be and decided to preserve it. So, we made Forest City into a four-island development instead – just for the sea grass,” he explained.

We strive to protect the environment, knowing how important it is for the ecosystem to be able to flourish,” he said. “And because of what we are doing for the sea grass, our neighbour the PTP is also taking measures to protect the aquatic environment.”

I was happy to be shown photos of marine life off the Forest City project that include the Hippocampus kuda seahorses and the Jorunna funebris nudibranch.

Investing In Future Employees

‘Prosper Thy Neighbour’ is something that the management at CGPV holds on to.  To increase the chances of employability, Forest City has embarked on several initiatives including providing free Mandarin and English language classes for the fishermen of Tanjung Kupang.

According to Shalan Jum’at, co-founder of Kelab Alami, Forest City has given funds to assist the local fishing community to buy nets and tools to repair them, and have set up a net-service centre at the Kelab Alami clubhouse.  The fishermen would gather there to learn English and Mandarin from tutors provided by Forest City.  This prepares the fishermen for the possibility of providing eco-tourism services for foreign tourists and future residents of Forest City.

Children from SK Tiram Duku can now learn Mandarin for free, increasing their chances of employability in the future
Five local schools have also been adopted by Forest City where the children are being given Mandarin language classes financed by Forest City.  Schools such as SK Tiram Duku in Tanjung Kupang are being prepared as future employees and service providers for the foreigners residing at Forest City.

We would like to be inclusive and ask the Orang Asli in the surrounding areas to provide guides for eco-tourists but it is so difficult to change their mindset.” explained Dr Yu when asked about the involvement of the local Orang Asli at Forest City.

This was confirmed by Encik Noore bin Kasi, the Tok Batin or village headman of Kampung Orang Asli Simpang Arang.

We would like to get involved in eco-tourism but it is difficult because the Orang Asli have difficulty to change their way of life,” he said of the difficulty faced. “They think that this (Forest City) project does not benefit them. They are wrong! Eco-tourism will definitely benefit them. Development comes at a very fast pace but the mindset of the Orang Asli is too slow to catch up.

He stressed that the situation is made worse by the presence of outsiders, in particular NGOs that are anti-government that have been coming in and out of the village to spread negative views about the project and the government to the Orang Asli community.  He is afraid that the opportunity to benefit from the project will get lesser as time go by, and if the Orang Asli are being bombarded with lies continuously, they will lose out.

Looking Forward

How would Forest City help the locals? According to Datuk Md Othman, Forest City is aimed at foreign buyers, not Malaysians. This is to ensure that foreigners take up only what is being sold at Forest City, leaving the development on mainland Johor up for grabs by the locals.

This is how Johor ensures that the local market is not spoilt,” he added.

Whether or not there is cashflow controls imposed by China, the rich Chinese who already have investments worldwide would still come to Forest City to buy properties.

Dr Yu is equally optimistic. “Forest City is within the One Belt, One Road initiative area. The High Speed Rail ensures connectivity between Forest City and the rest of Asia especially Thailand, and India. People with investments here from the Middle East or China can fly into Senai airport direct and not have to transit at KLIA.  I am certain the cashflow control is just a temporary measure to make sure that they know where are the money being invested, and Forest City being a China-involved development project will surely see a surge in investors from China once everything has been consolidated.

With more sales offices being opened in the Middle East and in Indonesia, Forest City will definitely achieve its target.

Dr Yu said, unlike Langkawi, Tioman or nearby Stulang, the island was not duty-free, but has a portion that is designated as a duty-free area. Within this duty-free area is a township, so that its population will be able to enjoy a lower cost of living because the retail goods and consumables will cost a lot less.

Many things in Forest City will be “unprecedented”, so in that sense, the project will be exciting,” Yu said.

And for as long as Forest City exists, it will surely continue give good life to the people of southern Johor.

The DAP Generation

Pig in chains

Pig in chains.

The above is rather cute. But it reminds me of something that is despicable.

Pig in chains – courtesy of Utusan Online

Hew Kuan Yau, otherwise known as Superman Hew, is a racist and also a product of the DAP.  He has made racist remarks since social media found him. He made a racist remark during the previous Sarawak State Election saying that the DAP had chosen a Malay candidate so he could be used to “screw the Malays.”

After Malaysia’s badminton event at the 2016 Olympics, Hew wrote another racist remark on his Facebook page. News portal ‘The Mole’ reported the following:

Via his Facebook account, Hew, who is widely known as the “DAP superman”, wrote this in Chinese:

“污桶聽好,如果華人真的 balik cina,馬來西亞奧運吃蕉啦!” (Listen properly Umno. If Chinese really go back to China then Malaysia will eat banana in the Olympics)

Ironically, on the second paragraph of Hew’s posting, the former DAP Teluk Intan chief who despite his resignation is still known to be actively involved with DAP, wrote this:

“Sini tanah Malaysia, bumi Malaysia! Kita semua anak Malaysia, no more racism.” (This is Malaysian soil, the land of Malaysia! We are all Malaysianz, no more racism.)

Hew claims to have left the DAP, has never been condemned by the DAP for making racist remarks.  He said he resigned all party posts and from the party after he was criticised for making a brief Facebook remark in Mandarin in July, where he asserted that the South China Sea belongs to China and said China should not be opposed merely because one is anti-communist.

The Malay Mail Online reported that Hew, who said he had joined DAP since the age of 19, recounted all the nurturing and opportunities afforded to him by the party and party veteran Lim Kit Siang, including the drawing of comics, writing statements and training to deliver speeches.

This is an admission and evidence that Lim Kit Siang nurtures a new generation of racists in the DAP, and uses Malays to ‘screw the Malays.’  But this is nothing new.

When the 3rd General Elections’ results came out for the state of Selangor on the 10th May 1969, the Alliance (UMNO, MCA and MIC) had won 14 state seats.  The Opposition which comprised of the DAP, Gerakan and an Independent candidate, won nine, four and one seats respectively, making it a 50-50 win.

Supporters of both parties went wild immediately. For two days victory parades were held and racial slurs such as “Death to the Malays! Sakai go back to the jungle!“, “Kuala Lumpur belongs to the Chinese” and “What can the police do? We are the rulers! Throw out all the Malay policemen!“ were hurled at the Malays be they civilians or policemen.

You can read more here.

That was then, and the following is now.

Apparently today, it was reported that a young Chinese, probably attracted to the DAP’s brand of racist politics, displayed his uncivilised DAP-nurtured behaviour outside a mosque in Johor Bahru during Friday prayers.  He blared his car’s horn non-stop while the Muslims were praying.

For his primitive behaviour, he received an equally primitive response:

I do not condone the mob rule that took place, but neither do I condone the rude behaviour displayed by the Chinese male.  Whether that is the true story or otherwise is not immediately known but the video has gone viral on WhatsApp.

And because some groups have been actively telling people about “their rights” which could be wrong, more and more people are becoming rude and disrespectful towards the authorities. This guy does not sound Indian nor Malay.

In January 2017, a couple who harassed a MBSA parking attendant got their 2-week jail term increased to five months.  The couple, known to be supporters of the Opposition, tried to confine the parking attendant by restricting her movements for slapping them with a parking ticket.

Such behaviour is seen now, and was seen in the run-up to the 3rd General Elections that resulted in the 13th May tragedy.

This is not surprising because this is how lawmakers from the DAP behave towards the law of the land and towards the authrities, the famous one being of DAP’s Member of Parliament for Tanjung Ng Wei Aik who was rude towards the authorities when he refused to pay a RM10.00 parking fee!

Wei Aik was once charged for writing a seditious post in a Chinese daily.  Although he was not found guilty, the fact that he skirts around the definition of sedition shows the true nature of the DAP.

This is how uncivilised the DAP and their supporters are.  While many Malaysian Chinese prefer peace and prosperity for all, DAP and its supporters prefer tension to be created so that if racial clashes happen, they can cry foul and blame the Malays for being oppressive.

What we need is more people like the Singapore Land Transport Authority Officer when faced with a Chinese woman angry about how vehicles belonging to Muslims are being parked outside the mosque:

So remember, do not vote for the DAP if you continue to want unity, peace and prosperity.

How The RUU355 Is Unconstitutional

What everyone fears most is for the Malays to unite.  I wrote this a few months back.  All the lawmakers know that the RUU355 amendments have no impact whatsoever to the non-Muslims, and even if all the Muslims MPs from both PAS and UMNO were to vote for the amendments, they will never attain the 2/3rd majority required to pass the bill for it to go to the next stage.

Which is why the Malays in the DAP, PAN, PKR and Pribumi are the tools for the DAP leadership to use, as in the words of Superman Hew, “to screw the Malays using the Malays.”

Objections are raised using mainly the Malay tools.  The screen-capture of a Twitter conversation between a BERNAMA journalist and a PAN MP is the evidence to that.

In the run up to its tabling, the RUU355 has met with lots of resistance.  I don’t believe that the lawmakers don’t know that it is the right of each religious group to manage and administer its own affairs.  I also don’t believe that the lawmakers do not know that Islam is the religion of the Federation.

But the resistance towards it is mainly to avoid the provision of an opportunity for Muslims and Malays to unite just before the next general elections.  They oppose just for the sake of opposing.

And then in comes the individuals who do not see or understand that in Islam, protecting the rights of a community supercedes the rights to protect an individual’s rights, nor understand the separation of jurisdiction between the civil law and Syariah law.

This dual system of law first existed in the Malay states in Perak in 1807 with the introduction of the Royal Charter of Justice of 1807 in Pulau Pinang.  Prior to that, laws based on the Syariah has been the lex loci of this land.

Islam first came to this land in the ninth century A.D and flourished in the 13th century, 200 years before the kingdom of Melaka was founded. The first evidence of a coded Syariah law was from the Terengganu’s Batu Bersurat, written in 1303, a full century before Melaka.

The kingdom of Melaka produced two major legal digests, which formed the main source of written law in Melaka – the Hukum Kanun Melaka , and the Undang-Undang Laut Melaka .  The Hukum Kanun consists of 44 chapters, which touched upon matters such as the duties and responsibilities of the Ruler, prohibitions amongst members of society and penalties for civil and criminal wrongs and family law.  The Undang-Undang Laut consists of 25 chapters, which covered maritime matters, such as the duties and responsibilities of ships’ crew, laws pertaining to voyages and trade.  The law contained in the above written codes are said to be based on Islamic law of the Shafie School, together with elements of local custom.

Melaka’s written codes were responsible for the growth of other written codes in other states of the Peninsula: Pahang Legal Digest 1595, the laws of Kedah 1605, the Laws of Johore 1789, and the 99 Laws of Perak, 1878.

Therefore, the question of the Syariah creeping into the lives of the Muslims of the land does not hold true.  The reverse however is.  The RUU355 is not about amending the offences but merely seeking the agreement to enhance the punishments to be meted out for the offences.  And as explained in previous writings as per clickable links above, the Federal Constitution is the supreme law of the land and therefore offences already covered in the Penal Code as well as in other civil laws made canoot be tried under the Syariah laws of Malaysia.

Furthermore, the separation of jurisdiction of the legal systems provided by the Constitution also ensures that the rights of non-Muslims are protected – only Muslims can be subjected to the Syariah law.

On the question of the Muslims being subjected to dual laws, this is not a problem. If a Muslim commits theft, he will not get his hand amputated in Malaysia.  Theft is an offence under the Penal Code and therefore the Muslim offender gets punished according to what is provided for by the Penal Code.  The punishments that the Syariah court can mete out cannot go beyond the Second List of the Ninth Schedule of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.

DAP Emperor Lim Kit Siang was against the introduction of Section 298A of the Penal Code of Malaysia.  In a Parliament debate on the 9th December 1982 on the Penal Code and Criminal Procedure Code (Amendment) Bill 1982 he said the following:

I quote:

I was aware that the new Section 298A of the Penal Code has also been drafted in order to punish the non-Muslim partner in a khalwat offence until I read a Bernama write-up on the amendment the other day. The Bernama report exulted that now both the Muslim and non-Muslim parties to a khalwat offence would be punishable, the non-Muslim under the Penal Code amendment.

A Muslim found guilty of khalwat is usually fined $200 or $250 under the Muslim enactments of the various States. I have caused a check of the penalties for khalwat, offences in the various states, which vary from State to State but they all range from the lightest penalty of $100 or one month’s jail in Kelantan to the heaviest penalty of $1,000 or six months’ jail, as is to be found in Johore. However, the non-Muslim partner charged under the Penal Code Section 298A for khalwat activity which causes or attempts to cause or is likely to cause disharmony, disunity on feelings of ill-will would be exposed to an offence which is punishable with three years’ jail, or fine, or both.

This is most objectionable and unjust where for the same act, different persons are charged under different laws where one of them imposes much heavier penalties. Or is the Muslim partner in a khalwat charge going to be charged under the Penal Code in the Criminal courts? I am sure that the Shariah Courts in the various States would vehemently oppose this as a serious erosion of the jurisdiction and powers of the Shariah Courts.

So, in 1982 Lim Kit Siang opposed the introduction of Section 298A because a similar offence tried under the Syariah law would only provide for a much lesser sentence.  Why is he complaining now about Hadi wanting to introduce higher punishments for the same?  Wouldn’t it be fair for the non-Muslims?

He added:

As the purpose of the 2M government is to uphold the sanctity of Islam, defend true Islamic values and Muslim unity in the country so as to be able to deal with the problems of kafir mengafir, two imam issue, separate prayers and burials, in the Muslim community, the government should confine its legislative efforts to the Muslims only, and not draft a Bill with such far-reaching consequences in allowing for State interference in the practice, profession and propagation of non-Muslim faiths.

35 years later, he backtracks on the need for Muslims to make better its laws for the Muslims only. Which is why I say Lim Kit Siang is opposing for the sake of opposing so that the Muslims do not rally behind this bill months before the general election is due.

Even PKR’s Wong Chen acknowledged back on 29th Aril 2013, six days before the 13th General Elections that in order to gain support from the Malays, PAS, which was a partner in the Pakatan Rakyat coalition, needed to play up the Hudhd issue and had the full support from the parties in the Pakatan Harapan.

Hannah Yeoh, who is the Speaker of the Selangor State Assembly even allowed the Hudud motion to be brought into the assembly.  So why oppose the same motion when it is brought into Parliament? Why the double standard?

And why must Lim Guan Eng ask the BN components such as MCA, MIC and others to bear responsibility for the tabling of the RUU355?  Why don’t he ask his party’s Anthony Loke and Hannah Yeoh instead? They both supported Hudud and the tabling of Hudud in the Selangor State Assembly (as in the case of Hannah Yeoh).

Anthony Loke even went to town with his support for Hudud telling his Chinese audience not to be aafraid of Hudud:

Yet, the RUU355 is not even about Hudud. So, what is unconstitutional about the RUU355?

Only the objections by the vapid non-Muslims against the RUU355 is unconstitutional, as it is a right given to all religious groups, not just the Muslims, to manage its own affairs.  I don’t have to agree with the amendments proposed by the RUU355, but it is my religion and therefore it should be left to the Muslims to manage its own affairs – as guaranteed by the Federal Constitution.

And as for the atheists, just stay off my social media accounts. You don’t have the locus standi to participate in this debate.

Kit Siang Racist No.1 – Bahagian Akhir

Saya telah menulis betapa rasisnya Lim Kit Siang dalam Bahagian 1 dan Bahagian 2 sebelum ini.

Lim Kit Siang bukan sahaja seorang rasis, malah beliau juga menentang apa jua usaha kerajaan ketika itu untuk memerangi dakyah komunis.

Dua hari sebelum pilihanraya umum ke-3 (1969), Kit Siang telah mengadakan satu sidang akhbar di mana beliau menuduh bapa tiri kepada orang kanannya sekarang iaitu Christopher Ross Lim sebagai “Menteri Pelajaran penipu.”  Christopher Ross Lim kini menggunakan nama Zairil Khir Johari. Tiada “bin”.

Kit Siang telah menuduh kerajaan Perikatan ketika itu membuat Malaysia sertai Liga Anti-Komunis Sedunia, satu tuduhan yang telah dinafikan oleh Khir Johari.

Soalan: kenapa Kit Siang beriya-iya menghentam kerajaan sekiranya benar sekalipun Malaysia sertai Liga tersebut?

Jawapan: pihak pembangkang ketika itu, termasuk DAP, dipenuhi dengan mereka yang bersimpati dengan perjuangan Parti Komunis Malaya.

Slogan-slogan Komunis dipamerkan semasa perarakan anti-Kerajaan Melayu oleh Pembangkang
Slogan Komunis dibawa oleh para penyokong pembangkang

Sebulan sebelum itu iaitu pada 24 April 1969, seorang petugas UMNO, Encik Kassim bin Omar, yang sedang dalam perjalanan pulang setelah tamat tempoh berkempen pada hari tersebut telah dibunuh dan mayatnya dilumurkan cat merah oleh para penyokong pembangkang.  Inilah di antara sebab mengapa tempoh berkempen yang lama boleh menjadi berbahaya kepada keselamatan dan ketenteraman dalam negeri.

Sejak bulan Julai 1968, iaitu sebulan selepas bermulanya Darurat Kedua (pemberontakan bersenjata kedua oleh Parti Komunis Malaya) yang tamat 21 tahun kemudian, Kit Siang telah mengapi-apikan semangat perkauman di kalangan para penyokong pembangkang.

Di antara pengapian yang dinyatakan di atas adalah seperti berikut:

  1. Pada 27 Julai 1968, di sebuah rapat umum DAP di Tanjung Malim, Perak, Kit Siang telah dengan sengaja memutarbelitkan polisi Pendidikan Kerajaan dengan memberitahu hadirin bahawa polisi pendidikan Kerajaan direka untuk menghapuskan suratkhabar bahasa Cina, sekolah-sekolah Cina dan juga bahasa Cina.
  2. Pada 24 Ogos 1968, di sebuah rapat umum di Slim River, Perak, Kit Siang telah dengan sengaja memutarbelitkan polisi Kerajaan mengenai Bahasa Kebangsaan dengan tujuan menimbulkan syak dan kemarahan kaum-kaum lain terhadap orang Melayu.
  3. Pada 7 September 1968, di sebuah rapat umum DAP di KM38, Jalan Sungai Besi, dan pada 21 September 1968, di Kampung Baru Sungai Way, Kit Siang telah dengan sengaja menghasut kebencian terhadap kerajaan dan orang Melayu dengan membuat fitnah terhadap MCA dengan cara menuduh parti tersebut membantu kerajaan orang Melayu menghapuskan bahasa Cina dengan tidak mengiktiraf projek Universiti Nanyang.
  4. Pada 29 September 1968, di sebuah rapat umum DAP di Batu Pahat, Johor, 2 November 1968, di Lawan Kuda Bahru, Gopeng, Perak, dan pada 26 Januari 1969, di Jalan Yow, Pudu, Kuala Lumpur, Kit Siang telah mengapi-apikan kebencian dengan memberitahu para hadirin bahawa polisi kerajaan adalah polisi rasis kerana kerajaan telah memberi keutamaan kepada Bumiputera untuk memasuki IPTA sekaligus menjadikan kaum lain sebagai rakyat kelas kedua di negara ini.
  5. Pada 12 Februari 1969, di sebuah rapat umum DAP yang diadakan di Jalan Lengkongan Brunei, Kuala Lumpur, Kit Siang telah sekali lagi mengapi-apikan semangat perkauman dengan memberitahu para hadirin bahawa Kerajaan menunjukkan sikap diskriminasi dengan Melayu diberi keistimewaan untuk memasuki IPTA, mendapat pekerjaan dan pengagihan tanah.

Apa yang Kit Siang tidak beritahu kepada umum adalah hakikat bahawa di dalam jabatan-jabatan kerajaan pun (kecuali Angkatan Tentera Malaysia), bukan Melayu mengatasi Melayu dalam peratusan penjawat awam seperti yang tertera di dalam gambar di bawah:

Nyata sekali sikap rasis dan penghasut yang dimiliki Kit Siang masih belum pudar hingga ke hari ini.  Pilihanraya umum telah diadakan pada hari Sabtu bersamaan 10 Mei 1969.  Parti Perikatan yang terdiri dari UMNO, MCA dan MIC telah memenangi 66 buah kerusi, kurang 23 dari pilihanraya umum ke-2, manakala pohak pembangkang telah memenangi 54 buah kerusi.

Pada pukul 5.30 petang, 11 Mei 1969, DAP telah membuat satu perarakan tanpa permit polis yang mengandungi ima buah kereta dan 15 buah motorsikal bermula di Brickfields menghala ke Jalan Lornie (kini Jalan Syed Putra).

Apabila perarakan ini melalui di hadapan Balai Polis Brickfields (kini telah dirobohkan), para peserta yang hampir kesemuanya Cina berteriak:

Apa polis boleh buat? Kita raja! Buang semua polis Melayu!

Pada pukul 10 malam hari yang sama, semasa melalui hadapan Balai Polis Jalan Travers, mereka berteriak:

Mati Melayu! Sakai pergi masuk hutan!

Kata-kata penghinaan ini sekali lagi dilemparkan terhadap anggota-anggota polis apabila mereka sekali lagi melalui di hadapan Balai Polis Brickfieds.

Pada masa yang sama di Changkat Thamby Dollah berhampiran dengan Penjara Pudu, lebih kurang 40 orang penyokong pembangkang telah berteriak:

“Kuala Lumpur Cina punya!

Keesokan harinya iaitu pada hari Isnin 12 Mei 1969, 500 buah skuter yang dinaiki penyokong pembangkang telah melalui Jalan Ipoh, Jalan Parlimen, Jalan Gombak, Jalan Raja Laut sebelu kembali ke Jalan Ipoh sambil berteriak kepada setiap orang Melayu yang mereka nampak:

Melayu sekarang tak ada kuasa lagi. Sekarang kita control!

Apabila konvoi ini tiba di perkarangan Kampung Bahru, mereka berteriak kepada orang Melayu:

Melayu keluar! Apa lagi duduk sini? Kita hentam lu! Sekarang kita besar!

Pada sebelah malamnya, para penyokong pembangkang terus keluarkan kata-kata kesat terhadap anggota polis Melayu seperti:

Mata-Mata Lancau!

Butoh Melayu! Pergi matilah!

Bukan saya sengaja ada-adakan benda yang saya tulis di atas.  Anda boleh baca sendiri dalam gambar laporan 13 Mei 1969 yang dibuat oeh Majlis Gerakan Negara (MAGERAN) ketika itu:

Di mana Lim Kit Siang semasa berlakunya pencacian dan maki hamun terhadap orang Melayu di Kuala Lumpur?

Lim Kit Siang pada pagi hari Selasa bersamaan 13 Mei 1969 telah bersedia melarikan diri ke Kota Kinabalu supaya beliau tidak berada di situ sekiranya berlakunya pergaduhan antara kaum.

Beliau tiba di Kota Kinabalu dan terus mengadakan rapat umum DAP di Kampung Air. Di situ beliau telah menghasut dan mengapi-apikan bukan sahaja kebencian terhadap orang Melayu malah kali ini cuba timbulkan kemarahan terhadap penganut agama Islam.

Beliau memberitahu para hadirin ketika itu bahawa Kerajaan cuba menubuhkan Malaysia yang Melayu (Malay Malaysia) dengan membahagikan rakyat kepada Bumiputera dan Bukan Bumiputera.  Beliau juga membuat fitnah kononnya Kerajaan akan menjadikan pentadbiran negeri Sabah sebuah pentadbiran Melayu.  Beliau juga menghasut kebencian terhadap Islam dengan menabur fitnah bahawa Kerajaan akan menghantar rakyat Malaysia (termasuk penduduk Sabah beragama Kristian) untuk berperang dan mati di Timur Tengah untuk membantu rakan-rakan ahli-ahli OIC menawan semula Baitulmaqdis dari genggaman Israel.

Demikianlah betapa rasis dan hinanya Lim Kit Siang dan parti DAP yang dipimpinnya.  Hampir 48 tahun selepas peristiwa 13 Mei 1969, Kit Siang masih lagi menyerang kerajaan yang dikatakan kerajaan Melayu.  Ketika itu, Melayu bersatu memertahankan haknya yang telah sedia ada sebelum datangnya datuk dan nenek Lim Kit Siang – hak yang telah termaktub dalam Perlembagaan Persekutuan yang dipersetujui semua kaum.

Malangnya sekarang ada yang mengaku Melayu tetapi mudah lupa.  Kini pengkhianat ini serta para pengikutnya pula yang menjilat Kit Siang serta mereka yang seangkatan dengannnya.

Lagi Pembohongan

Kalau ikut Mahathir, macam-macam dah kena tutup kini. Namun, seperti yang didakwa Alexandria Luger, Mahathir akan masuk neraka kerana kerap berbohong.

Hari ini Mahathir berbohong lagi. Dia kata Forest City memberi hakmilik tanah kekal kepada para pembeli.

Rasanya dah berbuih dah penerangan diberikan mengenai perkara ini. Bhaiya Bangladesh kontrak mungkin telah faham sefahamnya akan penerangan tersebut. Tetapi sebab penerangan ini bukan diberikan dalam bahasa ibunda beliau maka agak sukar bagi beliau memahami.

Ahli Parlimen Sekijang terpaksa terangkan sekali lagi bahawa yang hakmilik kekal adalah hartanah strata. Dua bulan lepas pun DYMM Sultan Johor dah terangkan perkara yang sama.

Nak diterangkan dalam bahasa apa lagi?

Kemudian, Najib Razak pula yang dipersalahkan. Bukankah Forest City perihal tanah negeri Johor? Apa kena-mengena dengan kerajaan pusat? Masing-masing negeri ada unit perancang ekonominya sendiri.

Kenapa tak salahkan Tuanku Sultan Johor? Tak berani macam rakan sekapal beliau?

Memang Forest City bakal mendapat status bebas cukai. Apa masalahnya? Langkawi juga masih pulau bebas cukai.

Kalau Mahathir gunakan Internet sewajarnya dan bukan untuk menyebarkan fitnah semata-mata maka beliau pasti mengetahui bahawa kenyataan beliau bahawa status bebas cukai Langkawi akan ditarik balik hanyalah pembohongan yang nyata.

Apa yang diumum kerajaan adalah hanya kedai-kedai berlesen sahaja yang akan dibenarkan menjual barangan rokok dan arak bebas cukai di Langkawi.

Begitu juga langkah untuk meminta pemilik kenderaan yang berdaftar di Langkawi mengemukakan jaminan bank sebelum boleh dibenarkan membawa kenderaan mereka keluar dari pulau tersebut. Ini adalah untuk mengatasi kepincangan yang berlaku sejak sekian lama.

Siapakah yang telah menjual sebegitu banyak tanah orang tempatan Langkawi kepada para kroni suatu ketika dahulu? Siapa yang mengambil tanah 80 penduduk Melayu Pantai Gelang, Langkawi untuk dijadikan resort

Mengenai pinjaman oleh warga China pula, itu semua cerita basi yang diulang berkali-kali. Saya maafkan beliau. Bercerita sesuatu berulang kali ini ada hubungkaitnya dengan penyakit nyanyuk. Mungkin suatu hari nanti beliau akan memandang kepada anak beliau dan bertanya, “Hang apanama?” berkali-kali juga.

Sebenarnya saya kasihankan beliau. Pernah disanjung ramai suatu masa dahulu tetapi pernah ditolak sebagai perwakilan oleh Bahagian sendiri semasa masih dalam parti angkat beliau, UMNO. Namun beliau masih tidak sedarkan diri.

Kini beliau hanya mampu merangkak sambil menjilat kahak hijau yang diludahnya dahulu sambil ditunggangi oleh joki-joki yang mengharapkan kemenangan seekor kaldai tua.

Sudah-sudahlah berbohong. Kita tak boleh hidup selama-lamanya. Janganlah diikuti perangai Rafizi. Beliau rasa beliau masih muda.

Jangan sampai anda digelar SOTUN pula.

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.

Tan Bang Ang Dan MB Johor

ADUN Mengkibol, Tan Hong Pin semalam dengan bangganya mendakwa bahawa Menteri Besar Johor, Khaled Nordin, tinggal bersama-sama 13 orang pengundi lain di sebuah rumah kedai di Masai, Johor.

Menurut Malaysiakini, daftar pemilih bagi suku ketiga 2016 yang merekodkan pertukaran alamat pemilih oleh Khaled dan anaknya Akmal Saufi ke lokasi di atas.

Daftar pemilih bagi suku berikutnya mencatatkan 12 lagi individu turut disenaraikan kepada alamat yang sama.

Jika daftar pemilih itu diwartakan, maka akan ada 14 orang, termasuk MB dan anaknya, didaftarkan sebagai pengundi di alamat itu,” kata ADUN DAP itu.

Ia adalah antara ratusan butiran pengundi yang didakwa mencurigakan yang dikemukakan oleh Tan kepada Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya Johor, hari ini.

Menurut Tan, alamat yang dipersoalkan ialah ibu pejabat Umno bahagian Pasir Gudang di alamat 1, Jalan Tembusu, Taman Rinting.

Lantas saya membuat pemeriksaan ringkas kerana mungkin Tan dilahirkan tidak cukup sifat dan tiada daya pemikiran untuk membuat pemeriksaan ringkas dan mudah menggunakan Internet.

Saya mendapati bahawa alamat yang konon-kononnya mencurigakan Tan itu adalah lokasi Pejabat UMNO Bahagian Pasir Gudang.

Inilah rumah kedai mencurigakan Tan Bang Ang

Saya akan lebih teruja sekiranya terdapat para pengundi yang berdaftar di dua lokasi pengundian berbeza yang boleh dicapai dalam masa kurang lapan jam.  Ini bermakna sekiranya beliau boleh mengikis kulit jari untuk menghilangkan dakwat kekal selepas mengundi di lokasi pertama, beliau boleh pergi ke lokasi kedua mungkin di sebuah negeri berjiranan untuk mengundi kali kedua.

Saya lebih tertarik dengan suatu perkara yang pernah diajukan kepada Ambiga dan rakan-rakan sebelum Pilihanraya Umum Ke-13 pada tahun 2013 di mana dua orang pemimpin pembangkang berdaftar sebagai pengundi MENGGUNAKAN ALAMAT RUMAH SEORANG AHLI UMNO!

20130424-232533

Seperti yang tertera dalam Tweet di atas bertarikh 16hb April 2013 (sebelum Pilihanraya Umum Ke-13), Dato Zaiful Ayu Ibrahim, anak kepada Tan Sri Dr Ibrahim bin Saad, meminta tolong Ambiga, BERSIH 2 dan Nurul Izzah menyiasat bagaimana dua orang pengundi hantu bernama Wan Azizah binti Wan Ismail dan Anwar bin Ibrahim boleh berdaftar di rumah keluarganya di Permatang Pauh sedangkan keluarganya secara keseluruhan merupakan penyokong tegar UMNO di kawasan Parlimen tersebut.

Apabila saya memeriksa senarai pengundi berdaftar terkini bertarikh 27hb September 2016, saya dapati kedua-dua pengundi hantu tersebut masih berdaftar sebagai pengundi di alamat tersebut!

Pengundi-pengundi hantu masih wujud di Permatang Pauh
Pengundi-pengundi hantu masih wujud di Permatang Pauh
Tidak menghairankanlah jika Tan tidak teliti dalam perkara seperti ini. Beliau pernah dirujuk ke Jawatankuasa Hak dan Kebebasan Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) Johor atas alasan membawa masuk orang luar tanpa kebenaran ke dalam dewan persidangan.

Apabila mendapat sedikit kuasa menjadi ADUN, Tan berlagak seolah-olah Dewan Undangan Negeri Johor itu DAP yang punya.  Teringat saya kepada suatu perumpamaan lama dalam tentera, “Seperti Red Indian mendapat senapang.”  Habis kesemuanya di tembak termasuk langit.

Sekiranya Tan kurang kebangangannya, beliau akan membantu SPR mencari senarai orang yang tidak layak mengundi dan orang yang telah mati yang masih tersenarai sebagai pengundi.  Setakat berdaftar di rumah kedai tidaklah seteruk orang kuat PKR dan Ketua Anus Usus Umum Pakatan berdaftar di rumah orang kuat UMNO sekurang-kurangnya untuk dua pilihanraya umum dan dua pilihanraya kecil di tempat yang sama.

Malangnya, semasa waktu bantahan untuk Rang Daftar Pemilih suku tahunan diberikan, dia tidak membantah. Kini baru beliau hendak timblkan syak wasangka.

 Menurut Seksyen 9A Akta Pilihan Raya 1958, mana-mana daftar pemilih yang telah diwartakan tidak boleh dicabar di mana-mana mahkamah.


Saya yakin, contohnya di Selangor di mana Shah Alam merupakan kawasan majoriti Melayu, kini mempunyai ramai pengundi berbangsa Cina dipindahkan di situ.  Saya tidak menuduh sesiapa tetapi perhatikanlah kemungkinan berlakunya pertambahan pengundi berdaftar berbangsa Cina di kawasan Setia Alam yang kini di bawah Parlimen Shah Alam, dan lihat akan penurunan jumlah pengundi berdaftar di kawasan-kawasan di mana DAP menang dengan majoriti yang besar – sebagai contoh, Parlimen Seputeh di mana majoritinya melebihi 50,000.  Kemungkinan ada perpindahan kawasan mengundi bagi sebilangan mereka.

Kemungkinan juga ada 23 orang pengundi di setiap rumah kedai di situ.

Boleh Tan Bang Ang periksa?
