Special Branch Warning on ISIS-like Threat in Malaysia

A few days ago, the Malaysia Special Branch gave a public warning on the real and serious threat of ISIS affecting Malaysia anticipated to be done by Malaysian Muslims who were recruited to fight in ISIS against other Malaysians. Malaysia is a country who will not simply give any such warnings because such news may cause upheaval if wrongly understood.

What the Special Branch said in a carefully worded interview is a wakeup call for all Malaysians who see ISIS as a threat to our way of life in this beloved country. The analysis is that this threat is so serious now that the Police has no choice but to warn the people ahead of time because if this threat is allowed to be made real, it will be an overthrow of our Government and the people who do not subscribe to their advances.

The article was carried by The Sun Daily here.

Anwar and September 16 – A date with hope?

Anwar had the audacity to link September 16 (Malaysia Day) with his political agenda for the Pakatan Rakyat (PR) to assume the mantle to form the new government of Malaysia.  The critical link is Anwar’s ability to obtain committed support from at least 30 MPs to join Pakatan Rakyat in some way.  The SMS rumors are rife.  The speculations are growing.  The BN Backbenchers Club (BNBC) are “inviting” all “interested” 75 member MPs to a study trip possibly down under (Australia or better still Timbuktu) with a return date of September 17.  Arguably the coincidence of coincidences and rated a better coincidence than the timing of Saiful swearing.

The Malaysian Insider has reported that Pak Lah is not wanting to give Anwar the opportunity to form a new government by September 16 and stressed that this BNBC study trip has nothing to do with his intention to block Anwar which seems to make this action a total joke.  Read here for the report.

Does the date of September 16 really matters? What do you think?  What does Anwar think?  Read

Malay Rights – A Mystical Myth?

I recently came across a letter by Shaik Rizal Sulaiman that was published first by MalaysiaKini on June 23, 2008, and subsequently found its way to numerous blogs.  In the wake of the so-called UMNO-PAS Malay Unity talks recently disclosed (whatever PAS wants to define it), this letter serves as a good reminder and posits a very pragmatic and realistic view from a new generation Malay perspective which is apolitical in nature.  His words are as a professional and from his heart.

He writes:

I dare say that most Malaysians (regardless of race) below the age of 40 would like to see all opportunities be spread amongst those who deserve it on meritocracy.


The Malay politicians continue to shout about Malay rights and bumiputera rights because the very nature of our local politics is sadly racially biased. In this day and age, a great nation is built upon joint success stories, meritocracy and the combined hard work of its people without any fear or favour of racial biased politics governing our daily policies.
