虽然篇幅长了一点,上面这篇文章值得一读。

个人觉得,到现在为止,RPK算是个“大丈夫”。

“富贵不能淫,贫贱不能移,威武不能屈,此之谓大丈夫。”


这样的事,几个人能做到呢?

Made in Malaysia
Raja Petra Kamarudin
Wednesday, 01 April 2009 15:04

What do foreign investors face when they come to Malaysia? How do they overcome the government bureaucracy and the many rules imposed on foreign investors? Imagine this typical scene in a government department when a movie producer tries to get approval to shoot a documentary in Malaysia.


Excuse me, but I’m wondering if you could help me.

Tengok itu. (The officer points to a sign on the wall that says: GUNAKAN BAHASA MALAYSIA).

I’m sorry. I don’t understand.

Mesti guna Bahasa Malaysia.

I’m sorry, but I’m an American. I don’t understand the local language.

Must use Bahasa Malaysia. Not American language. I cannot speak American.

But we don’t have an American language. We speak English.

Oh. Why don’t you get your Bumiputera partner to come if you cannot speak Bahasa Malaysia?

I don’t have a Bumiputera partner.

How can? All foreign companies that do business in Malaysia must have Bumiputera partner.

But we are not doing business in Malaysia. We do business in America. I am here to find out how to get a permit to shoot a documentary in Malaysia. We are a movie company.

Oh. You want to make a movie in Malaysia. Very good. Malaysia has plenty of history and culture. Good place to make a movie. You must show the Twin Towers and the Penang Bridge and the Iskandar Development Region in your movie.

No, it is not that kind of documentary. We are making a documentary about the murder of Altantuya Shaariibuu.

Aiyah! Cannot mention that name. That name banned.

Banned?

Yes. Government ban anyone mentioning the name Altantuya.

Oh. Then how do we address that?

I don’t know her address. Maybe you ask the Mongolian Embassy.

No, I don’t mean her address. How do we solve the problem of her name?

Altantuya Shaariibuu can’t be used. But you can use Aminah Abdullah. That name not banned by government.

Okay then. I want to make a documentary about the brutal murder of Aminah Abdullah.

That one okay. Government can approve. But you must also show the Twin Towers and the Penang Bridge and the Iskandar Development Region in your movie.

But those have nothing to do with the documentary. The documentary is about the murder of Altan…..

Ah, ah, ah….

Sorry, I mean Aminah Abdullah.

Why you can’t also show the Twin Towers and the Penang Bridge and the Iskandar Development Region in your movie?

Okay, maybe I can show some clips of the Twin Towers and the Penang Bridge and the Iskandar Development Region in the documentary.

Good. But must show the Twin Towers in Kuala Lumpur okay? Cannot show in Melaka like that Sean Connery movie, Entrapment. Our PM was very angry. He said the foreigners distort the truth.

Okay. The Twin Towers will be shown in KL.

And also the Penang Bridge and the Iskandar Development Region.

Okay, I will also show the Penang Bridge and the Iskandar Development Region in KL.

No, the Penang Bridge is in Penang and the Iskandar Development Region is in Johor.

Okay, I will take note of that.

And what about the songs?

Songs?

Yes, must show some local songs.

But this is a documentary about the murder of Al…….

Ah, ah, ah.

……Aminah Abdullah.

But can still show some local songs even if the story is about a murder. You must show Siti Nurhaliza singing. At least two songs.

Okay, we shall show City what’s her name….

Siti Nurhaliza.

……City Nurlaziha singing……

Nurhaliza.

Nurhaliza singing two songs.

Good, good. And what about Umno history?

Umno history?

Yes, must show Umno history and how Umno fought for Merdeka from the British.

But what’s that got to do with the murder?

You must show Umno history and how Umno fought for Merdeka. If not government can’t approve.

Okay, I shall show the Umno history and how Umno fought for….fought for….

Merdeka.

….Merdeka from the British.

Good. And don’t forget to also include the new PM’s speech.

New PM’s speech?

Yes, Najib Tun Razak.

What has his speech got to do with the movie?

Must show. Must show new PM declare he never met that Mongolian woman.

You mean Aminah Abdullah?

No, PM just said he never met that Mongolian woman. He never mention any name. Must show that speech in the movie.

Okay, we will show that as well. Do I take it if I agree to all those terms I can get permission from the Malaysian government to shoot the documentary in Malaysia?

You got Bumiputera partner?

No.

Must have Bumiputera partner. See list here. You must choose one Bumiputera partner from this list.

Okay, I will choose a Bumiputera partner from this list.

And must give 70% contract to local Bumiputera companies.

I don’t understand. What contracts?

70% of your work must be done by Bumiputera companies.

But we don’t need local participation. We shall be bringing our entire crew from the States.

But make sure not from Pakatan states. That one government can’t approve.

Pakatan states?

Yes. Penang, Selangor, Kedah and Kelantan.

No, I mean our entire crew will be brought in from the United States of America.

Cannot. Must have 70% local. Only 30% from America.

Okay, I will try to squeeze that requirement in.

And which state you want Datuk?

Excuse me. I don’t get that.

You make movie about Malaysia you can get Datuk. Which state you want? Can choose.

Oh, I don’t think I’m interested in Datuk, whatever that is.

Aiyah, people pay RM250,000 for Datuk. Why you don’t want? You make movie on Malaysia can get Datuk free. No need pay RM250,000.

Okay, throw in the Datuk for free then.

Okay, we will arrange Melaka Datuk for you. Where you shoot the movie?

In Selangor.

Aiyah, Selangor cannot. That is Pakatan state. Choose another state.

But the murder happened in Selangor so we need to shoot the documentary where the murder happened.

Selangor cannot. If Pakatan state, government cannot approve. You shoot in Melaka. Melaka very historical.

Okay, okay, we’ll go along with what you want. Is there anything else I need to know?

When you launch movie the First Lady must be invited.

The Queen?

No, not Queen. Rosmah Mansor.

Will she come to the premier?

Of course. If Shahrukh Khan go, she will go.

But Shahrukh Khan is not in the documentary.

Why not? He is very popular in Malaysia and First Lady like him. He also got Melaka Datuk like you. Must show him in movie.

Look, can I come back to you on that? We shall have to decide whether we still want to shoot this documentary in Malaysia.

No problem. When you already decide you come again to see me. We welcome all movie companies to Malaysia and will extend our cooperation and help you. Foreigners always welcome in Malaysia.

A lesson in Malaysian culture, for foreigners
Raja Petra Kamarudin

Friday, 03 April 2009 18:14

Today, we take a peek into a briefing session for the wives of foreign diplomats who have just set foot in Malaysia. This briefing session is to help these wives of foreign diplomats to better understand Malaysian culture and to avoid embarrassing situations or diplomatic booboos.

Ladies, ladies, ladies, let’s get down to business.

Welcome to Malaysia. You are going to be here for at least two years and to make your stay here enjoyable and free of sticky situations, we shall take you through a crash course in how to understand Malaysian culture.

First of all, there is no such thing as a Malaysian. What we have are four groupings labelled as Bumiputera, which is another word for Malay; Chinese, spelt C-I-N-A and pronounced Chee-Ner; Indians, sometimes referred to as Keling or Hindu by the Bumiputera; and the lain-lain or ‘others’. We, I’m afraid, do not fit into any of these four categories. The Bumiputeras call us ‘Mat Salleh’ while the Chinese refer to us as ‘Kwai Loh’.

Now, while I said there is no such thing as a Malaysian, the Indians and Chinese will insist you refer to them as Malaysians. The Indians, however, would argue that they are Indians and will talk about Indian rights and Indian interests. But, while they claim to be Indians, you must not call them Indians. They will get very offended. You must call them Malaysians. And the same goes for the Chinese.

For the Malays it is even more complicating. They insist they are Bumiputeras, which means ‘sons of the soil’. But they will demand you refer to them as Melayu and they will argue about things such as Ketuanan Melayu, which means Malays as Lords, and other such rhetoric. But never mind, over time you will begin to understand how Malaysians think, which will eventually give you the impression that they can’t really think.

Each grouping has its own culture when it comes to gatherings. Chinese culture is quite straightforward. They love lavish dinners and young half-naked women dancing and singing on stage while they eat. The Malaysian government has officially adopted this as Chinese culture and you will notice that all government-sponsored gatherings will be of the like.

Malay gatherings are not as sexy. They always start their gatherings by screaming ‘Ketuanan Melayu’ and which will end with the kissing of little curved knives that are called keris, pronounced ‘Chris’. Being Muslims, they are not allowed to have young half-naked women publicly singing and dancing on stage. Most of these things are done behind closed doors and away from the public eye.

Indian culture, when it comes to gatherings, is less sexy or militant. Normally, they will invite the President of the Malaysian Indian Congress to grace their gatherings and they will sing his praises, hug him, and kiss his hand. Sometimes, they go into frenzy and will wail and throw slippers at him. It, of course, depends on what time of the day it is to see which ritual the Indians would adopt.

You will never see a Chinese chauffeur. While most of the big and lavish cars are owned by the Chinese, their chauffeurs are always either Malays or Indians. The same goes for security guards. They are all either Indians, Malays or lain-lain, never Chinese. We assume this is because the Chinese do not trust their own kind to drive their cars or to handle their security.

When entering a Malaysian home you must take off your shoes. This appears to be the one and only thing that all four groupings share in common. When you invite Malaysians to your home you will notice that they will also take off their shoes before entering. So it is advisable to place a shoe rack outside your house in the event you wish to invite Malaysians over to your home.

Religious holidays are synonymous with the handing out of little packets that contain money. The Chinese will hand out red packets and the Malays green packets. The Indians do not appear to share this Chinese and Malay custom of handing out packets of money on religious holidays. However, they will never refuse receiving it if you offer them one, especially during an election.

The official language for Malaysia is not constant and keeps changing. It used to be Bahasa Kebangsaan and then was changed to Bahasa Melayu. Then, for a short while, the government adopted Bahasa Baku as the official language. Now, the official language is Bahasa Malaysia. Actually, all four are the same except for the spelling, which changes each time they switch over.

Therefore, there is no such thing as a Malaysian language per se. So, maybe this is the problem the government faces in establishing an official language for Malaysia. Most of the Malay vocabulary is borrowed from the Thai, Indian, Chinese, Portuguese, Dutch, Arabic and English languages. I was told there are only five or six words that can be regarded as originally Malay.

The federal government is led by three main political parties within the ruling coalition called Barisan Nasional. You will notice, however, that the names of all three of these parties -- Umno, MCA and MIC -- are in English. None are in the Malaysian national language. Nevertheless, all these three parties are very passionate about defending the Malaysian national language even though none of them use the Malaysian national language in their party names.

Okay, that ends our first lesson in how to understand Malaysian culture. Tomorrow, we shall talk about other aspects of Malaysian culture and traditions, such as the education and economic policies of this country and the quota system attached to these policies. The education quota system is actually quite easy to understand. In certain institutions of higher learning, 100% of the students are Malays and none of the other groupings are allowed places in these institutions.

We hope, by the end of this three-day crash course, you will be able to understand Malaysia better. Invariably, you will discover that Malaysians are quite difficult to comprehend. They say one thing but they mean the opposite. For example, when you invite them to join you for dinner, they will say ‘no thank you’. Actually, they mean ‘yes please’. And if you take that to literally mean ‘no thank you’ they will get very upset and consider you sombong or pompous.

The truth behind the release of the 13 ISA detainees
Raja Petra Kamarudin

Wednesday, 08 April 2009

The Indians are not that gullible and naïve. Why release the two ‘harmless’ ones who had repented anyway? Why not release the other three ‘hardcore’ HINDRAF leaders -- in particular the extremely stubborn and most uncooperative head honcho?


Reading is a form of escapism. When you are reading, and if you are engrossed enough in the book you are reading -- the Malays call it kushuk -- you can transport yourself to somewhere you are not. And that was how I spent my time while in solitary confinement in the Kamunting Detention Centre. I read and read and read.

My wife arranged to send me loads of books when she visited me every week. If the book were about 200 pages or so I would finish it in a day. The thickest book I read was 1,400-pages and it took me about a week to finish. That was how I escaped from Kamunting. I transported myself into another world by shutting myself out from the miserable world that I was stuck in, the world of solitary confinement.

It was during one of these ‘escapes’ that I noticed a minor brouhaha had erupted outside my cell. One of the guards was on the phone and was summoning ‘reinforcements’. He wanted someone to relief him so that he could go to the next block.

My curiosity got the better of me and I put my book down to step outside and investigate what the commotion was all about. Three Internal Security Act detainees were in the midst of being released that morning, I was told. Who are they? The guards mentioned their names but I did not know them from Adam. After all, you do not quite have a social life when under solitary confinement and I had yet to make many friends from amongst the 60 or so detainees.

Hari Raya was around the corner and these were three of the lucky ones who would be going home to join their families for Hari Raya. Maybe ten more or so will also be released around Hari Raya, the guards told me. I sighed. These people who are due for release had been under detention for up to eight years. I was barely two months in custody. I never dreamt I would be one of those lucky ones who would be going home for Hari Raya.

But the ten or so never got released for Hari Raya. Even the guards were puzzled. These people had already been slotted for release. Why were they not released? It did not occur to everyone, then, that they would be released, but they would only be released after Najib Tun Razak takes over as Prime Minister. This was so that Najib would be seen as spearheading reforms and the first ‘reform’ would be to release a few Internal Security Act detainees who had spent many years under detention.

“Would the HINDRAF 5 also be released?” I inquisitively asked the guards. Maybe two, they told me, but certainly not all five. Hmmm….why is that? Well, the guards told me, the HINDRAF 5 is no longer five. They are split into three. There are two in one group, another two in another, and the head honcho is all by himself and does not talk to the others. In fact, he has requested to be shifted to another block and no longer shares the same block with the other four.

What happened? I am one inquisitive creature. They have quarrelled, the guards told me. Two are in one gang, the other two in another, and the gang leader is separated from the rest. The head honcho is very ‘difficult’. He does not get along with anyone. Two more are also quite stubborn and continue to resist. But two are quite alright. They are very cooperative and regret getting involved with HINDRAF. In fact, they blame the head honcho for their predicament and this is one of the reasons they have split up.

So these two have a good chance of being released, I said to the guards. Yes, these two are actually no problem. In fact, we have recommended they be released. It is also good we release two of them and retain the other three under detention. This would cause HINDRAF to break up because some of the leaders would be seen as having sold out. Mereka akan berpecah kalau separuh bebas dan separuh lagi masih ditahan.

So, the 13 Internal Security Act detainees being released recently was no surprise. This was discussed as far back as October last year. In fact, they were supposed to have been released around September or October last year. For that matter, their release is already quite overdue and the delay was so that Najib, and not Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, could release them. And throwing the two HINDRAF leaders in for good measure was also a brilliant strategy. After all, they had already reformed and regretted their actions. And, as a bonus, this will create further friction amongst the HINDRAF leadership if two got released while the other three continue their detention.

The release of the two HINDRAF leaders did not, however, help swing the Indians back to Barisan Nasional in yesterday’s by-elections. The Indians are not that gullible and naïve. Why release the two ‘harmless’ ones who had repented anyway? Why not release the other three ‘hardcore’ HINDRAF leaders -- in particular the extremely stubborn and most uncooperative head honcho? If the government is serious about reforms, and if Najib is really that agent of change, release all five HINDRAF leaders. Don’t just release the two, who no longer have teeth, as a token gesture.

Well, that is as far as the story of the release of the 13 Internal Security Act detainees is concerned. I am sure you want to hear more, especially about Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad’s plans for Umno and Najib. That story will have to wait for another time. But we shall certainly continue this series of storytelling -- so stay tuned for more.

Till later, take care.

It’s payback time
Raja Petra Kamarudin
Wednesday, 15 April 2009 00:46

Yes, it is payback time -- big time payback time. But it all depends on how far Tun Dr Mahathir wants to take these issues. The knife is in his hands. It is just whether he wants to use that knife to slit Tun Abdullah’s throat.



There are 32 state assembly seats in Terengganu. 24 are under Barisan Nasional and the balance eight under Pakatan Rakyat. Yesterday was the second day of the three-day state assembly sitting but ten of the Barisan Nasional State Assemblypersons have refused to attend the session.

The ten Barisan Nasional State Assemblypersons, led by the previous Menteri Besar Idris Jusoh, said they are not boycotting the state assembly sitting as such. They just refuse to attend the state assembly until the police can guarantee their safety. It seems three of them have received death threats and they allege the death threats, which were sent via SMS, have been traced back to someone in the state government.

The Menteri Besar, however, says that the ten are boycotting the state assembly sitting and that he will not attempt to persuade them to end their boycott. In short, what the Menteri Besar is saying, the ten can go to hell. The Deputy Prime Minister has responded by telling the ten to not jeopardise the state government while the Prime Minister has ordered them to attend the last day of the session today.

PAS said if there is a vote of no confidence against the Menteri Besar they will support it. If that happens, then it will be eight opposition State Assemblypersons, plus ten from Barisan Nasional, to total 18 versus 14. That means Ahmad Said would be ousted from office through a vote of no confidence -- like what should have happened in Perak but did not because of the interference of the Perak Palace.

The ten, however, claim that there was never any intention to table a vote of no confidence against Ahmad Said in the Terengganu State Assembly. The reason they are not attending the assembly -- not to be interpreted as boycotting -- is because of the death threats they received from someone in the state government. The death threats, in turn, are because of the rumours that the ten intend to table a vote of no confidence against the Menteri Besar in the state assembly.

Very confusing isn’t it? Anyway, the long and the short of it is there is a crisis in the Terengganu State Assembly with ten on one side, 14 on another, and eight waiting to vote with the ten in the event there is going to be a vote of no confidence against the Menteri Besar.

Okay, forget about all that for the meantime. The issue that must not be forgotten is that Ahmad Said, head of the gang of 14, was personally appointed by the Sultan, in this case who is also the Agong. Idris Jusoh, on the other hand, head of the gang of ten, was rejected by His Majesty the Agong. Does this mean Umno is going to defy the Agong and oust Ahmad Said in favour of Idris Jusoh and risk triggering a Constitutional Crisis in Terengganu like what happened in Perak?

In the Perak Constitutional Crisis, Nizar Jamaluddin was accused of being a treasonous person (penderhaka) for opposing the wishes of the Sultan of Perak with regards to His Highness’ choice of Menteri Besar. What would we call Idris Jusoh and his band of merry men who also oppose the wishes of the Sultan of Terengganu with regards to His Majesty’s choice of Menteri Besar? Will, again, Umno carry placards labelling the Agong as ‘natang’ if His Majesty refuses to replace Ahmad Said with Idris Jusoh?

Yes, it’s payback time. But the question would be is it payback time for the Sultan of Terengganu or payback time for Umno or payback time for the Sultan of Perak who has just been shown that they don’t really need to agree to the Sultan’s choice of Menteri Besar after all -- like what they are doing in Terengganu?

And why does the Sultan not want Idris Jusoh as the Menteri Besar? The issue is quite simple really. From 2000 to 2008, Idris misused RM7 billion to RM8 billion of Terengganu’s oil revenue. The money did not go to the state. It went to Umno and Idris was the head of Umno Terengganu during that time. The Terengganu Monsoon Cup alone swallowed RM300 million a year over a period of three years. If you include the houses they built and so on, the total cost comes to RM1 billion.

Then there is the RM3 billion that is going to soon pour into the state, which the government promised the state during the recent Kuala Terengganu by-election. Whomsoever is the Menteri Besar can get his hands on that RM3 billion. Can you now understand why there is currently a big fight in Umno Terengganu? It’s all about the money. Repeat, loudly, after me: SHOW ME THE MONEYYYYYYYYYYY!

And talking about payback time, it is also payback time for Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. In 2006, Malaysia Today wrote about all those issues that Tun Dr Mahathir is not happy about. Bullshit! That was the response of many readers. They thought I was merely speculating or spinning a whole bunch of lies, or whatever.

As I always like to say: I just love it when I have the last word (or the last laugh) and can tell everyone, “I told you so!” -- even if it has to be three years later.

Top of the list of Tun Dr Mahathir’s pet hates is the cancelling of his Crooked Bridge. Rest assured the Crooked Bridge is going to be back on track and no one will be able to block it this time around -- unless the Tun keels over and dies from a heart attack or something like that. As long as he is still alive and kicking he will kick anyone who dares block his Crooked Bridge.

The next item on Tun Dr Mahathir’s agenda is the setting up of the Presidential Council -- with him as the head and Tun Daim and many others from his previous regime as Council Members. Way back in 2006 or 2007 I said this was on the cards. The Tun, however, personally denied this. In fact, not long after the 8 March 2008 general election, in his speech at the Singgahsana Hotel in Petaling Jaya, Tun Dr Mahathir announced the plan to set up the Presidential Council.

Almost as close to the cancellation of the Crooked Bridge, Tun Dr Mahathir’s next pet hate is the selling off of MV Agusta for Euro 1 or RM4.80. This was a write-off of Euro 70 million or more than RM300 million. Tun Dr Mahathir was furious as hell. He had plans for that company and Tun Abdullah’s decision to sell off the company was a slap in the face and a sort of vote of no confidence against Tun Dr Mahathir.

The reason given for selling off MV Agusta is that if they don’t sell it then the government would have to pump in another RM300 million to keep it afloat, on top of the RM300 million they already paid to buy the company. This is like saying whoever made that decision to buy the company, meaning Tun Dr Mahathir, was stupid and did not know what he was doing.

Now do you know why Tun Dr Mahathir took it very personal? He knew what he was doing and he knew that after paying RM300 million to buy the company they would need to pump in another RM300 million to keep it afloat. That was part of the plan and was no mistake. But RM600 million is considered still cheap and a good buy for what they were getting -- a motorcycle company that makes good motorcycles and has the technology to make small motorcars.

In a way Tun Dr Mahathir had a point. It all depends on how you want to look at it. The Germans spent more than RM1 billion on R&D back in the early 1980s to develop the 190E. R&D is not cheap. It cost billions. So paying RM600 million to own a company that has the ability to do R&D can be considered a good deal if R&D is what you are looking for and if you happen to have RM600 million sitting around doing nothing.

Whoever made that decision to sell the company was, however, looking at it from another angle. Why send good money after bad? You already wasted RM300 million. Why waste another RM300 million? You might as well cut your losses and save the RM300 million that is still in your pocket. And that was why they decided to sell off the company.

To Tun Dr Mahathir, however, the real issue is; who was it sold to? And at that price of Euro 1 or RM4.80 on top of it. And how much money did they make on the deal? This is what Tun Dr Mahathir wants to know and which has never been answered even how many times he posed that question. And this is what irks Tun Dr Mahathir the most. He feels someone did a scam and made big bucks by selling MV Agusta for a mere Euro 1 or RM4.80. And he wants to know who it is so that he can nail this person’s balls to the wall. And he suspects that that person is Khairy Jamaluddin. And he wants to nail Khairy’s balls to the wall plus the balls of all those others who were involved in the scam.

Yes, it is payback time. And it is going to be payback time in a big way. Those who ignored and sidelined Tun Dr Mahathir are going to feel the full weight of his wrath. And this includes Najib.

For a brief moment, Najib distanced himself from Tun Dr Mahathir and pledged undying loyalty to Tun Abdullah. This not only upset Tun Dr Mahathir but hurt him as well. It was not Tun Abdullah but Tun Dr Mahathir who gave Najib his job. If left to Tun Abdullah, Muhyiddin would be the number two instead of Najib. But now Najib regards Tun Abdullah rather than Tun Dr Mahathir as his boss.

That was when Tun Dr Mahathir decided that Najib needed to be taught a lesson and Malaysia Today was more than happy to help teach him that lesson. When Najib realised that his future lay in Tun Dr Mahathir’s hands and not in Tun Abdullah’s, he quickly did a U-turn and managed to save his ass in the nick of time. In fact, Tun Dr Mahathir had already written Najib off and was talking to Tengku Razaleigh Hamzah as the possible successor to Tun Abdullah. Najib was that close to losing the job of Prime Minister.

Watch what is going to happen to Islam Hadhari as well. The government is reviewing Islam Hadhari and will probably abolish it in due course. Tun Dr Mahathir revealed his contempt for Islam Hadhari when he remarked that he does not know what Islam Hadhari means and that he knows only one Islam, the one that Prophet Muhammad taught.

And, last but not least, let’s see if Tun Dr Mahathir launches an investigation into the Oil-for-Food scandal. This is another thing that Tun Dr Mahathir feels is an issue that should not be allowed to be swept under the carpet. The Oil-for-Food scandal has already been reported by the UN Committee and US Congress and the report has been published so you really do not need any fresh investigation. The name of ‘Abdullah Badawi’ is mentioned in those two reports as the beneficiary of the Iraq oil quota and there is even bribery involved.

Yes, it is payback time -- big time payback time. But it all depends on how far Tun Dr Mahathir wants to take these issues. The knife is in his hands. It is just whether he wants to use that knife to slit Tun Abdullah’s throat.

But what I find most interesting about all this is that I can recap what I wrote in 2006 and 2007 and shout, at the top of my voice, with glee: Didn’t I tell you so?

毫不留情∶巫统的真正议程

《马来西亚前锋报》极度顽劣,这次我们不应该原谅或放过他们,我们应该出门买下一些《马来西亚前锋报》,然后烧掉它们。我们是否要成立一个『燃烧马来西亚前锋报日』呢?如果是这样的话,我们要求所有的报贩和报店杯葛《马来西亚前锋报》。

请去读一读昨天《马来西亚前锋报》的头条∶【起来吧,马来人!】
若这还不算煽动,那我就不知道该算是什么了!反对党支持者,包括我,在说出比不上《马来西亚前锋报》如此火爆的文章都要面对煽动官司呢!

该文章的开头就要马来人站起来,团结一致,面对『其他种族』的『极端要求』。看到非马来人做出许多能导致危害马来人政治力量的要求,『他们』必须对目前的政治情况警觉。马来人被要求不要像这些极端要求低头,反而要站起来,团结一致,捍卫他们的权益。

该文章继续指出说,在国会里已有足够的『马来人』席位,以设立全马来人班底的政府。换句话说,马来人不需要非马来人来成立政府。因此,政府必须满足马来人的所有要求,因为马来人是大多数,对非马来人也不需妥协。

巫统将会强大,若她只照顾马来人的权益的话。所以巫统需要专注马来人,不要惧怕非马来人,若巫统如以往般强大,非马来人会自动支持国阵。

该文章又指出说,政府必须只担心马来人,不必太注意非马来人,然后巫统必须为了马来人的权益而作出任何必要的事情。

那不是我说的,那是《马来西亚前锋报》说的。而《马来西亚前锋报》是执政政党所拥有的报纸,它也是执政党的口舌。而《马来西亚前锋报》所说的,与之前莫哈末阿里鲁斯旦(Mohd Ali Rustam)在2007年为人民进步党在马六甲召开的大会所说的没有两样,就是说:「马来人没有非马来人的帮助和支持下,能治理这个国家五十年,也能如此继续下一个五十年。」

《马来西亚前锋报》说的都是废话,在2008年全国大选,国阵的得票率是50.27%,或是4082411张选票,赢得140个国会议席,即是八百万张选票的约半数多。在输掉瓜登补选后,现在议席数是139席。

有三百万登记选民没有出来投票,另外四到五百万没有登记为选民。这表示说,虽然有八百万人投了票,却有约七到八百万人没有投票。那就是说,国阵只是得到约25%的人民选票,或是约15%的大马人口的支持,就能够成立了政府。

那也没什么了不起的,是不?《马来西亚前锋报》是怎样算出巫统或国阵得到大多数的大马人支持,特别是马来人呢?

在2008年全国大选中,巫统只赢了222个国会议席中的79席。包括瓜拉登嘉楼在内,不过现在输掉了,不过还有13个在沙巴的席位。那意思是说,巫统在半岛只有65个席位,是总席位的30%,不足够成立全马来人班底的政府。

也许《马来西亚前锋报》是指望公正党的20个『马来人』席位,还有23个(现在有了瓜拉登嘉楼,即是24个议席)回教党的议席。若44个民联的『马来人』席位和巫统的78个席位合拼起来,(就算连13个沙巴席位也在一起),马来人就能控制国会122个席位,对比222的一半,也就是比111个席位还多了11 个。尽管如此,那还只是一个简单的多数议席,比国阵现在所拥有的139席还差。

《马来西亚前锋报》是如何算出马来人可以只靠马来人席位就能管理这个国家的呢?虽然比现在的议席更加少,但他们还是可以以简单的大多数议席成立一个联邦政府。无论如何,这也只是一个学术性上的讨论。因为首先,44个民联『马来人』席位不会转向巫统,也许除了两个,我们所知道的那两个之外。

在2008年全国大选中,巫统的得票是 2381725张,或总票数的29%。但这些选票都不全来自马来人。巫统实际上赢得这些议席是因为有许多非马来人的帮忙。若只是靠马来人选票,巫统早就像其他国阵成员党那样,被刷下来了。下个大选的时候,巫统将不再得到这些非马来人的票,因为三〇八大选以来的四场补选都证明了这点(除非华人、印度人和『其他族群』都笨得像牛那样)。

而公正党则得票1509080张,或总票数的19%,回教党则得票1140676张,或总票数的14%。这表示说,巫统赢得79席,而公正党/回教党在三八大选的联手获得54席,或33%的总票数,或二百六十万张票,那是比巫统还要多的票数。

数据是不会说谎的,数据显示巫统没有真的他们所假装的那么强,即使公正党和回教党同意和他们联手,巫统也是决不会只靠马来人席位而成立政府的。那是因为巫统、公正党和回教党都是靠非马来人选票胜出的,而不是只靠马来人选票。而且公正党和回教党也没有理由要和巫统结合,正当巫统的理想是『马来人至上』,就不说公正党和回教党这两党本来都是反对这些的了。

我亲爱的大马人,那个才是真正的课题。巫统知道我们所知道的,他们也不笨。实际上他们有很多钱,也买得起最好的脑袋来为他们服务,而他们被告知他们的日子不多了,除非他们能让马来人抛弃反对党,然后到巫统旗下团结一致。

是的!就是那样。巫统要马来人团结,但是必须在巫统下团结。若马来人在反对党下团结,或是马来人和华人,印度人,和『其他』人在一起的话,那么那就不算得是团结,那叫做分化。

《马来西亚前锋报》极度顽劣,这次我们不应该原谅或放过他们,我们应该出门买下一些《马来西亚前锋报》,然后烧掉它们。我们是否要成立一个『燃烧马来西亚前锋报日』呢?如果是这样的话,我们要求所有的报贩和报店杯葛《马来西亚前锋报》。若有任何商店继续摆卖《马来西亚前锋报》,那我们就应该杯葛这些商店。我们一定要告诉那些商店说,我们在杯葛他们,为何我们杯葛他们,好让他们知道,若他们要我们停止杯葛他们的商店的话,他们必须停止售卖《马来西亚前锋报》。

马来人应该发起这项运动,这是一个对《马来西亚前锋报》和巫统的讯息,说明马来人也不会附和种族主义,以及危险的种族暴动。马来人一定要向他们的非马来人兄弟姐妹显示《马来西亚前锋报》和巫统的议程不是大多数马来人的议程。

是的!我知道,这篇文章又会给我引来麻烦,警察又会找上门来,搜查我的家,没收我的电脑,我又会被叫去问话,被控上法庭,再次被控煽动罪,可是那是我的问题。与此同时,我们可不可以表示一下我们对《马来西亚前锋报》挑起马来人和非马来人之间的战火的试图的不满呢?

The lies that Blogs spin
Raja Petra Kamarudin

Monday, 20 April 2009 14:46

Blogs are basically thoughts and opinions of those who own the Blogs. Opinions may not necessarily be the truth or facts. After all, opinions are...well...opinions. To get to the truth, meaning facts, one has to also read the mainstream media, like Utusan Malaysia, which is owned by the ruling party, and compare its information with what Blogs write. Then you will know the truth because the mainstream media is undeniably the propagator of the truth.



Rais: Do not abuse the Internet

(The Star, 17 April 2009) - The government is not out to find fault with bloggers and Internet users but rather wants them to adhere to the guidelines and laws and to ensure the Internet, which acts as an alternative media, is not misused or exploited.

Information, Communication and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said the ministry played an important role in establishing that only the “right kind of information” reached the masses.

“It is not that we are looking for fault all the time. But we would like the right of the people to be guarded by the relevant authorities and the law. Our aim is to see the 1Malaysia concept succeed. However, in order to succeed, the facts must not be twisted or misinterpreted by some until it raises racial sentiments.”

“If the right information does not reach the people, how can there be success? So, I want everyone to understand and respect the law,” he said after the ministry’s monthly gathering at the Sultan Abdul Samad building here yesterday.

He added that anybody who violated the law had to answer for his or her action. “There are various laws that govern the rights of people to communicate, especially through the Internet. The ministry, however, would not be taking hasty action against critics as long as they did not flout the Communications and Multimedia Act,” he said.

He added that officers and agencies under the ministry were capable of carrying out their duties and enforcing the Communications and Multimedia Act, and the role of the Malaysian Communications and Multimedia Commission.

On another matter he said RTM had full control over the selection of reports for its news segments. He said the media, be it government or private-owned, had the right to choose the news reports they wanted, as long as they were not prejudiced. He said the ministry would only “interfere” when reports are not balanced.

“RTM will remain neutral,’’ said Dr Rais, who was replying to an online news report, which claimed that TV1 was given verbal instructions not to report the boycott incident at the Terengganu state assembly sitting on Tuesday.
*************************************************

Jambatan bengkok wajar dibina – Shahrir

(Utusan Malaysia, 19 April 2009) - Ahli Parlimen Johor Bahru, Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad berkata, jambatan bengkok menghubungkan Malaysia-Singapura wajar diteruskan.

Kata beliau, jambatan yang menghubungkan Tanjung Puteri di Johor dan Woodlands di Singapura itu boleh dilaksanakan dengan semangat setia kawan antara kedua-dua negara.

“Sebagaimana kita maklum kedua-dua Perdana Menteri telah mengadakan pertemuan empat mata di Pattaya, Thailand baru-baru ini dan isu perbincangan berkisar projek ikon ini dan saya yakin ia dibincangkan secara serius.

“Saya menaruh keyakinan Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak dan Lee Hsien Loong telah memperhalusi dan memikirkan secara terperinci berhubung projek ini demi kebaikan bersama,” katanya di sini hari ini.

Mengenai isu jambatan itu yang dibatalkan oleh bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi, beliau menjelaskan: “Jika diamati kenyataan Perdana Menteri Singapura sebelum ini ada menyuarakan komitmennya berhubung projek yang dicetuskan oleh Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamad dengan menyatakan kerajaan republik itu hanya bersedia turut sama terlibat dengan pembinaan jambatan itu selepas 2007.”

“Ini membawa maksud ketika itu, Singapura telah siap bina Pusat Kastam, Imigresen dan Kuarantin (CIQ) baru yang menjadi pelengkap kepada jambatan baru bagi menggantikan Tambak Johor yang dibina pada 1924 itu,” jelasnya.

Shahrir berkata, pembinaan projek ikon itu juga boleh dijadikan asas kepada lambang penyertaan Singapura dalam pembangunan di Iskandar Malaysia.

Sementara itu di Raub, Dr. Mahathir ketika mengulas gesaan UMNO Johor Bahru berkata, kerajaan sepatutnya tidak menghentikan langsung pembinaan jambatan itu.

“Bohong, kalau kata rakyat Johor tidak mahu jambatan ini dibina,” katanya.
*************************************************

Shahrir against crooked bridge, prefers better ties

(The Star, 20 April 2009) - Johor Baru MP Datuk Shahrir Abdul Samad is against the revival of the crooked bridge project and has instead proposed that both countries work together to build a straight one.

He said a straight bridge would be good for building better bilateral ties between both governments. The Singapore Government has agreed on the development of iconic projects in Iskandar Malaysia. “Why not build a straight bridge as one of the iconic projects?” he asked.

Shahrir added that a new straight bridge across the causeway would show renewed bond and would benefit both countries.

“It has come to my attention that many Johoreans are hopeful that our new prime minister and Cabinet will revive the crooked bridge project. The public must understand that bilateral ties between both countries will suffer if the project is revived,” he said, adding that the Malaysian Government should consider all implications when reviewing the project.

The Star had reported recently that many businesses have been suffering since the opening of the new CIQ complex last year and they were counting on the crooked bridge project to be revived to boost business in the city.

Shahrir was speaking to reporters at the launch of an anti-drug community service centre for residents of Taman Sri Stulang yesterday.

On the decision to open the old CIQ complex to pedestrians, Shahrir commended the Government and hoped that it would be implemented soon.

建设和破坏之间
作者  ∶拉惹柏特拉
原题 :Between construction and destruction
翻译  ∶ECS283
校对注解∶西西留

这是安华的失败。他以为他是个好领袖,因为他自己一个人管理整个政党。但这不是好领袖的做法,一个好领袖不是自己一个人管理政党,而是能够管理政党里的人。

《今日大马》本来应该是一个畅所欲言的论坛,在这里你可以不经过过滤地去发表你的意见。我本来都是一直试着这么做,但有时我不得已要违反我自己的「道德标准」。

这也许看起来很难理解,你怎么能够在保证言论自由的同时,却去阻止或删除掉让你生气的发言呢?不!得罪我并不是问题,得罪了大多数人才是问题。毕竟,民主不就是多数人说了算的吗?

无论如何,请不要与国阵所诠释的「大多数说了算」混淆。根据国阵,他们在大选中赢取大多数议席,所以大多数的大马人都支持他们。没有投选他们的少数人就不关紧要,只有大多数的人才关紧要。

那不叫作民主,应该叫做狂妄自大。首先,每个大马人都缴税。因此,不管他们支持谁,每个大马人都有权力。这里没有一样东西是与税没有关系的,即使你没有缴交私人所得税,你还是要缴交所有你需要的商品及服务税。

因此身为纳税人,你就有权力,那是来自你所缴的税务,不是来自你所投选的政党。况且,国阵也只是赢了超过半数的国会议席(不过却少过三份二)。而且他们也只是凭着约半数的选票,这表示说另外一半的选票都给了反对党。

在2008年大选中,国阵赢了140个国会议席和307个州议席。民联赢得了82个国会议席和196个州议席。民联赢取的总议席占了总议席的约40%,但民联的得票率却接近半数。

我们也不要忘了,总票数只有7944274张,这只占了大马人口的约29%。而国阵只赢了其中14.8%,或4082411张选票。国阵怎么能够辨称是大多数,而实际上只是14.8%的大马人投选了他们呢?这表示说有85.2%的大马人是没有投选国阵的。

这就是国阵的吹牛露出马脚了,他们还说既然他们胜了大多数的议席,就是得到大多数的大马人的支持,所以他们就能为所欲为,全是胡说八道!

无论如何,我们回到刚才《今日大马》论坛里讨论有关「言论自由」的课题。我没有说过是大多数人说了算,还有少数人不关紧要的。那些发帖的也许只占了《今日大马》读者的其中的1%,所以他们肯定是少数人。我们还有许多人只读不发帖,有些人非常喜欢看那些帖子的言论,有些人就从来不看,只是看新闻和文章,因为他们觉得这些发言都没有水准,也浪费时间。

我总常说,若你不喜欢这些发言,就别去读它们。为何要读这些发言后因为觉得不满意而生气呢?读者是自由发帖的,其他的读者就有自由不去阅读。

不过不行的,心痒痒嘛! 你知道这些发言都是「过分」或「不公平」的,你也知道,若你去读,你就会生气。但你还是去读了之后因此而发脾气。你没有听说过「选择的自由」(freedom of choice)吗?你有自由选择不去读,或看那些发言,就像他们有自由去张贴他们的发言那样。

这些读者真的是自作自受的。他们知道《今日大马》的读者发表了一些过分的言论,但还是去读他们的言论。他们应该略过不看,或杯葛这些言论,然后接受这些言论都很过分,若自己看了就会生气的事实。那么这样就不需要自讨苦吃了。

无论如何,我觉得那些发表过分言论的人应该退一步,看看更大的画面。我们想要在这里达致些什么目的呢?我们在试着教育大马人,在我们的国家所真正发生的事情,希望他们会加入我们,做些事情。我们需要改变,不过我们不能靠我们自己发动改变,我们在看到改变之前,需要有批评性的群体,而这惟有当所有大马人站起来团结一致,发出同样的声音的时候。

我们不要巫统或「马来西亚前锋报式」的马来人站起来,我们也不要兴权会式的印度人兴都教徒站起来,巫统和兴权会都是一个样的!那些印度人回教徒和印度人基督教徒又要怎样?他们都不参兴权会。实际上,许多印度人回教徒都支持巫统,那些在大马印度人回教徒阵线的,都要禁止对印度人回教徒使用「嘛嘛(Mamak)」这个字眼,并要求印度人回教徒被归类为马来人。他们肯定不会支持反对党(他们也在大选为国阵造势),他们和兴权会的支持者是保持一个距离的。

因此,我们需要大马人像个大马人那样来思考以及做事情,而不是分化——不止被区分成种族,还被再区分成宗教,例如印度人兴都教徒、印度人回教徒、印度人基督教徒、华人基督教徒、华人回教徒、华人佛教徒等等。这样要如何达致我们首相纳吉的「一个马来西亚」呢?

说到这里,让我们回到那些在《今日大马》发帖的人。当你没有顾忌地臭骂皇室或苏丹的时候,你让许多支持反对党,认同我们要看到一个真正有民主社会的大马的理想的皇室家庭所厌恶。也许你对某个苏丹或某皇室很生气,但臭骂完所有的皇室中人,就引起那些大多数同意这个国家需要改变的皇室家族的反动。

马来人有句谚语「因为生蚊子的气,就把蚊帐给烧了」(Marah nyamok, bakar kelambu)。就如成语「削足适履」。为了一些人的行为而打翻整船人,你所干下的破坏比所做的好事还要多。这里的课题是: 「我们是要建设或破坏呢?」我们不能以破坏来建设,这是行不通的。

所以,在你还没有发言之前,先想清楚,再三思考,然后才发言。我们需要大家都与我们同在,但是你们其中一些人的发言方式会使人们离开,那些以前支持我们的,现在都反对我们了。他们觉得《今日大马》是反回教、反马来人、反皇室等等的网站。这是否我们想要达致的目标呢?我们只是反不公、反压迫、反选择性提控、反滥权、反贪污、反警察暴力、凡选举不公、反种族歧视等等,我们没有反回教、反马来人或反皇室。不过你们一些人的发言就让人有这样的看法。

因此,当这些发言所造成的伤害多于好处时,有时我们的版主别无他法,只有删除这些帖子,甚至禁止读者发言了。我们的目的是把有良知,希望看到这个国家有正面改变的大马人团结起来。但是,若这些发言带来了破坏,那么为了诚心,为了正面改变而斗争的大家的好,就要牺牲个人的言论自由了。

还有,《今日大马》不是亲反对党,反政府的。毕竟,不是所有的州属都是国阵之下,有些是民联的,所以民联也是政府,我们也批评民联州政府。不过,国阵执政五十二年了,而民联,除了吉兰丹,执政也有一年了。所以要批评国阵的事情比起民联更加多,不过即使只是执政一年,我们也能够批评民联政府了。

例如说,安华好像当公正党是自己私人领地般来管理。也许在十年前是可能的,当时的公正党就像杂货店,所以就能用管理杂货店的办法。

不过十年来,公正党已经从杂货店扩张到像个霸级市场了,但是安华还是用杂货店的管理方式。

这是安华的失败。他以为他是个好领袖,因为他自己一个人管理整个政党。但这不是好领袖的做法,一个好领袖不是自己一个人管理政党,而是能够管理政党里的人。

安华一定要学习人事管理。他一定要学习如何管理这些人,让这些人去管理政党。在那里有许多人才,把事情分配,交给这些人才去办,让他们以他们的才智去管理政党就好了,这才是一个好领袖的做法。

当然,我们不能让他们自作主张,这样就会制造许多像前首相阿都拉所说的「小拿破仑」。每个人都一定要有规范、权限和责任范围。这些人一定要依照这些规范、权限和责任范围去办事。

现在,我这样批评安华,不是比起臭骂他是「愚蠢的嘛嘛」什么的,来得更好吗?我们要安华聆听及做我们要他做的,我们不要让我们的言论令印度人回教徒不高兴,然后让他们倒向大马印度人回教徒阵线,随后就倒向国阵了。

好了,就是这样,祝你们发帖愉快!不过请你们在发帖之前好好想想,为了建设而不是破坏而发帖,不然我就会狠狠地踢你屁股一脚。

The cat and mouse game with the Royal Malaysian Police
Raja Petra Kamarudin


Wednesday, 29 April 2009 00:52

The Special Branch wanted to know how much of these tactics were being used to enable Anwar to communicate with the outside world and thereby organise his Reformasi Movement and other political activities from behind the high walls of the Sungai Buloh Prison.

When I was about 11 or 12 years old, I was made to sit for an IQ test. I just enjoyed these tests because I had already done many before that. You see, my parents subscribed me to the Junior Readers Digest and every month, whenever I received my copies, I would relish reading them from cover to cover. One of my favourite chapters was the one on IQ tests.

Some questions were in text format and others in graphics form. Invariably, you are asked to solve puzzles and problems and how to get over sticky situations. My favourite question was the one about the bridge closing at 7.00pm and a guard being placed in the middle of the bridge to prevent anyone from crossing it. Those on the left bank would not be allowed to cross over to the right bank and vice versa.

The question was: you arrived at the bridge at 11.00pm and found the guard asleep in the middle of the bridge. If you crossed the bridge the guard would wake up and catch you trying to cross and will force you to go back the way you came. So how are you going to cross the bridge to get home?

Hmm….this was one tricky question. I pondered for a while and my reply was I would quietly creep across the bridge and just before I reached the guard I would turn around and walk back the way I came. I would then make a lot of noise, which would wake the guard up. The guard, seeing that I was trying to sneak across the bridge, would chase me and catch me and force me to return to the opposite direction. And the opposite direction is where I actually wanted to go in the first place.

So that would be how I would get to cross the bridge and go home. But this would mean the guard would have to be not too bright and can be easily fooled. He sees you heading back from where you came and he would think that you came from the other direction. So he would force you back to the opposite direction, thinking this is where you came from rather than this is where you actually wanted to go in the first place.

Confusing? Not really. All you need to do is to create the impression that you are coming from one direction whereas you are actually coming from the opposite direction. And when they force you to return to the direction they thought you were coming from, you end up, with their help, heading for the direction you really wanted to go.

And this is the cat and mouse game that one has to play with the officers in blue from the Royal Malaysian Police.

The officers in the Malaysian police force rejoice when they think they have got you covered and have figured out your every move. They monitor your movements, your phone calls, those of your friends, and whatnot. If they don’t get what they want they will dig deeper. And maybe, in the end, they will find what they want to know. So you need to give them something to work on. Let them think they have got you, whereas it is you who have got them.

For example, on 10 April 2001, the police picked up four people under the Internal Security Act -- Tian Chua, Saari Sungib, Hishamuddin Rais and Ezam Mohd Nor. The police had been following me for three days and I knew I was also about to be picked up.

I got into my car and with my wife driving we went to our daughter’s apartment. My wife noticed we were being followed.

That evening, my wife went out to buy some ice cream and she saw a bunch of police officers loitering at the entrance. She knew they were waiting for me.

The next morning, we left the apartment, and about one kilometre down the road, they stopped our car and took me in. I could have sneaked out the back and would have been able to give them the slip, but it was crucial that we find out what their game plan was.

To cut a long 54-day story short, Anwar was facing nine criminal charges and was already convicted for the first and was facing trial for the second. He was eventually found guilty for both and his jail sentences were made to run consecutive rather than concurrent. The first conviction attracted a six-year jail sentence and the second nine years. Together with the seven months remand period during the trial, Anwar was given a 15 years and seven months jail sentence. And he still had seven more trials to go through.

Anwar was probably going to be in jail for at least 100 years, which meant he was going to die in jail.

My interrogation took 54 days and my signed ‘confession’ was more than 200 pages. There was a lot they asked me and a lot I told them. The most crucial piece of information they wanted was how did Anwar manage to run the Reformasi Movement from behind the high walls of the Sungai Buloh Prison? They knew the Reformasi Movement was being guided and run by Anwar. They just did not know how it was being done.

I was posed this question and I spilled the beans. I could not hold anything back. The information just flowed.

We meet Anwar in court during his many trials and that is when he dishes out his instructions. In fact, not only the Reformasi Movement, but also the party itself is run in this manner. We look forward to his trial dates because that is when we are able to meet Anwar and receive instructions from him.

Three days later, the Special Branch officers came to see me, bringing a copy of a newspaper. “Read this,” they told me.

It was the newspaper headline about the government dropping the balance seven charges against Anwar.

“So, now there are no more trials. Anwar will no longer be going to court. So how are you people going to meet him now?”

“Aiyah,” I said, with a very disappointed and dejected look on my face. “Now the link to Anwar has been severed. There would be no way we can continue meeting him to get further instructions from him.”

I sat back and looked my Special Branch officers in the face. They had this very pleased look, as it they had pulled off the coup of the century. These are five very happy Special Branch officers. They even offered me a cigarette and ordered some Kentucky Fried Chicken for my lunch. They had broken the link of communication between Anwar and the outside world. That is the end of Anwar’s communication network.

The Special Branch officers were probably made to sit for a course where they studied how Chin Peng communicated with his guerrillas in the Pahang, Perak and Kelantan jungles, plus those along the Malaysian-Thai border. I, in fact, discussed this with them and knew of the ‘dead letter boxes’ and all such primitive communication methods of 50 years or so ago.

The Special Branch knew that I knew. And I knew that the Special Branch knew that I knew. So they wanted to know how much of these tactics were being used to enable Anwar to communicate with the outside world and thereby organise his Reformasi Movement and other political activities.

Well, I could not hold anything back. I spilled my guts out and told them everything. And the result of that was they dropped the balance seven charges against Anwar so that he can be cut off from the outside world and can no longer direct things from behind the high walls of the Sungai Buloh Prison.

But that was not really how it was done. And of course I can’t tell you how it was done in case we need to do it again. But what matters is that they believed this was how it was done and they dropped the seven charges against Anwar to ‘plug the holes’.

They were one happy bunch of Special Branch officers the day they broke the news to me that they had dropped the balance seven charges against Anwar. And I had to pretend I was so disappointed and unhappy that they had outsmarted us.

Yes, I bet those Special Branch officers did not have to sit for IQ tests when they were 11 or 12 years old. If not they would have had to figure out how to cross the bridge after 7.00pm when the guard is sitting right in the middle of the bridge to stop anyone from crossing. And then they would have figured out you need to fool the guard by pretending that you are crossing from one direction whereas you are actually crossing from the opposite direction. Then they would have known that, if you can successfully fool the guard, he would actually assist you to cross to the side, where you actually wanted to go.

Yes, there is more I want to reveal. But let this suffice for today. In the next article we shall talk more about how to play cat and mouse games with the Malaysian police. No, nothing that has happened thus far is anything we did not want to happen. They think they have us on the run. They think they have sent us underground. Is that so? Lt Col George Armstrong Custer also thought he had the Indians on the run. By the time he realised it was the other way around, it was too late. Little Bighorn was Custer’s last stand and where the Seventh Calvary met its doom.

More later, and stay safe till then.

Was Siva merely collateral damage?
Raja Petra Kamarudin

Friday, 08 May 2009 04:43

I believe Pakatan Rakyat knew it could not have won a military campaign in Ipoh yesterday. It has problems even winning the legal battles in court. The only way, therefore, is to allow Barisan Nasional to do what it did and which in turn would antagonise the people.

After I wrote my last article in No Holds Barred (It’s all about race, stupid!), I went to sleep -- after staying awake for almost 24 hours. I admit that my No Holds Barred article was very fiery, practically calling for blood. I make no apologies for that but I suppose sleep depravation does that to you; it makes you lash out. Nevertheless, I maintain my stand that what they did to Siva -- dragging him out of the State Assembly like a sack of potatoes and unceremoniously evicting him -- was downright uncivilised and utterly inexcusable.

After five hours of a good sleep, and with a clearer mind because of it, I have had time to reflect on what happened in Ipoh yesterday. As I said, I make no apologies for what I wrote earlier and have not changed my views. But what I have since been able to do is to analyse what the thinking of the Pakatan Rakyat leaders could have been and why they ‘abandoned’ Siva to his fate.

Could not Pakatan Rakyat have demonstrated a show of force and defend Siva to the last man standing? Are the Pakatan Rakyat leaders that gutless that they did not stand up for what is right? After all, they are constantly screaming that Siva’s eviction is unlawful and his physical removal unconstitutional. Why then not defend the law and the constitution by force if necessary?

Well, I am looking at things from the perspective of a political activist. Pakatan Rakyat could probably be looking at things from the political angle. Not being a politician I do not see things the political way but the political activist way. And this is maybe why I do not make a good politician. I just can’t see how sometimes in politics you have to allow the other side to show its true colours. In other words, you give your enemy enough rope for it to hang itself.

I have to go read Sun Tzu again and see what he said about strategy. And strategy involves many things. As Mao said, when the enemy chases, you run. When the enemy rests, you counter-attack. Mao must have read Sun Tzu as well and I am sure that was his ‘bible’ in the battle to win the hearts and minds of the Chinese people.

Something else Sun Tzu said was to not engage an enemy more powerful than you. And if it is unavoidable and you do have to engage, then make sure you engage it on your terms, not on your enemy’s terms. Choose your battlefield. Make sure it is a battlefield that you know. Never fight on a battlefield where your enemy will be stronger and better equipped than you.

The Taliban never read Sun Tzu -- or maybe they did, I don’t know. But they applied this strategy to the maximum and sent the powerful Russian military machine running back to Moscow with its tail between its legs. How to fight the Russian tanks, rockets and helicopter gun-ships when you are only armed with rifles? In an open battlefield the Russians would make mincemeat out of you.

Well, don’t engage the Russians in an open battlefield. The Russians would excel in an open battlefield. They are well equipped to fight in an open battlefield. So avoid the open battlefield and draw the Russians into the mountains. The Russian army is not trained to fight in the mountains plus their tanks would be useless in the mountains and the helicopter gun-ships would find the mountains most precarious.

So that is what the Taliban did. They knew the mountains like the back of their hands. They could move up and down those mountains blindfolded. And when the Russians came into those mountains the Taliban kicked the shit out of them. Eventually, the Russians called it a day and went home, but not after having to send home so many of their soldiers in body-bags.

So, what happened in Ipoh yesterday? There was hardly any resistance. PAS alone could have easily mobilised 50,000 supporters. Sure, there were roadblocks and thousands of police, hundreds in the State Assembly itself. But Pakatan Rakyat could have outdone this easily. Yet it did not. Why?

Anwar was not in Ipoh. Neither was Hadi Awang. Lim Kit Siang was but was not allowed in. And when they refused to allow him in he went off. There was no attempt to force their way into the State Assembly. No storming of the Bastille as had been hoped and as many had wished for. Why?

Was it complacency? Did they think Pakatan Rakyat would win the day without putting up a fight? Are they that naïve? Did they sell us out? Yes, those were the first questions running through my mind and lack of sleep allowed me to think only of the questions but the answers were not forthcoming.

I don’t believe it is any of the above. And I don’t think it is because of lack of caring or lack of interest as well. I think Pakatan Rakyat planned every move to the last detail and knew exactly what it was doing. And I think Barisan Nasional played right into Pakatan Rakyat’s hand.

But then I have a suspicious mind, as Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad is fond of saying. I am always looking for conspiracy theories. I am always thinking that there is more than meets the eye. I believe that politicians are good magicians. They distract you with their right hand while the trick is being performed with the left hand.

Is that what happened in Ipoh yesterday? Was that why it appeared like Pakatan rakyat offered only token resistance to make it look like they tried? Maybe, maybe not!

Let’s face it. Pakatan Rakyat had already lost the state. It lost the state when the Sultan sacked Nizar and replaced him with Zambry. Pakatan Rakyat now has lesser seats than Barisan Nasional in the State Assembly. What happened in Ipoh yesterday was merely to confirm what was already fact -- that Pakatan Rakyat is no longer the government in Perak.

Pakatan Rakyat could have resorted to force, bloodshed even. But would that have helped them get back the state? What it may have done is to give the police an excuse to detain everyone under the Internal Security Act and declare martial law in Perak like what they did in Kelantan more than 30 years ago -- and which I have written about before. That means democracy would be suspended and they can run Perak without the ‘burden’ of a State Assembly. Umno would be doing things without any opposition since there is no longer any State Assembly and therefore no longer any opposition in the State Assembly.

I believe Pakatan Rakyat knew it could not have won a military campaign in Ipoh yesterday. It has problems even winning the legal battles in court. The only way, therefore, is to allow Barisan Nasional to do what it did and which in turn would antagonise the people.

If blood had been spilled, the people might blame Pakatan Rakyat rather than Barisan Nasional for it. Sure, Barisan Nasional is violent. But then Pakatan Rakyat knows that Barisan Nasional is violent. Why then allow them to use violence whereby the people are exposed to risk and danger? Pakatan Rakyat should look after the people’s interest and guard their safety. Knowing that Barisan Nasional is violent and yet exposing the people to danger is downright irresponsible of Pakatan Rakyat.

This would be the reaction of the people if anything adverse happens to them. So Pakatan Rakyat very cleverly avoided violence and allowed Barisan Nasional to do what it did in Ipoh yesterday. And, today, more people have become disgusted with Barisan Nasional and will vote for Pakatan Rakyat in the next election, or by-election, just to demonstrate this disgust. They may not vote for Pakatan rakyat because they love Pakatan Rakyat. But they will certainly vote for Pakatan Rakyat because they now hate Barisan Nasional even more than before yesterday’s fiasco in Ipoh.

Was, therefore, Siva merely collateral damage? Were they expecting this and did Barisan Nasional do exactly as expected? After all, the state had been lost months ago. Winning the battle of the State Assembly, yesterday, would not have got the state back. Instead, it would have invited other problems, the people’s safety being one of them.

This is of course only my wishful thinking. I could be wrong, I don’t know. I would like to believe that what happened was part of Pakatan Rakyat’s plan and that it worked as planned. I hope and pray that Pakatan Rakyat laid a trap and that Barisan Nasional walked right into it and got snared.

As I said, I am not a politician. So I think differently from the way politicians do. But I do hope that what I am currently thinking is what they had also been thinking all along and that what happened in Ipoh may appear to have been a defeat but was actually a political victory that, in time, will reveal itself.

They say: he who has the last laugh has the best laugh. Was yesterday, in Ipoh, the last laugh? Or is the last laugh yet to be laughed? And who is going to have that last laugh? Politicians are so devious.

And am I being too idealistic here?

逐鹿问鼎:仅是西华的小小挫折?
2009年5月8日 星期五

出处∶Malaysia Today
原题∶The Corridors Of Power∶Was Siva merely collateral damage?
作者  ∶拉惹柏特拉
发表日期∶80-05-09
翻译  ∶西西留

我相信民联已经心知肚明,他们无法在昨日怡保的军事行动中获胜,它甚至要在法庭中赢得司法上的胜利也成了一个问题。因此,唯一能做的是,任由国阵做他们想做的事,而这将转而使人民嗔怒。

我在写完【毫不留情】的最后一篇稿【这都是有关种族,笨蛋!】后,我就去睡了——在维持了二十四小时的清醒后。我承认那篇在【毫不留情】的文章非常凶暴,尤其是提到『呼吁流血』的字眼。我不会为此而道歉,我想睡眠不足会导致你做出这样的行为,它会使你激动。不管怎样,我维持我对他们对待西华的看法——仿佛像一袋馬鈴薯似的將他拖出议会,随意的将他驱除出去,这种做法是极度野蛮和不可饶恕的。

在经过五个小时的安眠后,我的思考能力变得比较清晰了,我花了一些时间来思考昨天发生在怡保的事。就如我所说,我不会对我早前说撰写的文章而道歉,我的立场不变。可是,我一直在分析民联领袖们到目前所做的举动,以及为何他们“遗弃”西华后面的实情。

民联应该在当时显示力量,保卫西华直到最后一刻,不是吗?民联领袖们难道都是胆小鬼,我敢为正确的事站出来?总而言之,他们不断呐喊驱逐西华是违法的,将他的身体拖走是违反宪法的,可是为何不在必要的情况下使用武力捍卫法律和宪法呢?

是的,我是以政治运动分子的角度来看待这件事,民联也许是站在政治角度来看待事物。我不是政治人物,我不会从政治观点来看待事物,而是站在政治运动分子的角度而言,这也许是为何我不能成为一名优秀的政治家了。我所无法理解到是,在政坛中,有时你需要允许对方发威。换句话说,你给了你的敌人足够的绳子,好让他把自己捆绑起来。

我需要回去阅读《孙子兵法》,看看他对战略的说法。战略涉及很多事物,毛泽东说过,「敌进我退,敌疲我打」※。毛泽东一定是读过《孙子兵法》,我确定那是他作为赢获中国人民的同情和精神的『宝典』。
※1928年5月毛泽东总结中国工农红军游击战初期的作战经验,提出了『敌进我退,敌驻我扰,敌疲我打,敌退我追』十六字诀,开始形成了中国工农红军游击战的基本原则。

孙武也说过,「不要与强过你的敌人交火」①,「如果逼不得已必须交火的话,确保你在自己的阵地,而不是敌人的阵地内进行,选择你的战场,确保那是你熟悉的战场,永远也不要在你的敌人占有更强更好的武装的情况下进入战场」②。
①【孙子兵法●军形第四】昔之善战者,先为不可胜,以待敌之可胜。不可胜在己,可胜在敌。故善战者,能为不可胜,不能使敌之必可胜。故曰:胜可知,而不可为。
白话:
善於指挥作战的人,首先要创造不被敌人战胜的条件,以此等待可以战胜敌人的有利时机。创造条件不被敌人战胜,主动权在我方,敌人可能被战胜,在於敌人使我方有可乘之机。所以,善於指挥作战的人,能够创造使自己不被敌人战胜的条件,但不能使敌人必定被我战胜。可见,胜利是可以预测的,但在不具备战胜敌人的条件下,绝不能依据自己的愿望去硬战强攻。
②【孙子兵法●军争第七】以近待远,以佚待劳,以饱待饥,此治力者也。
白话:
以我军有利地形和阵地接近来等待敌军的长途跋涉,以我军充分的休整和充足的物资储备来等待敌军的疲惫和饥饿,这是掌握与提高战斗力的方法。
【孙子兵法●地形第十】支形者,敌虽利我,我无出也,引而去之,令敌半出而击之利。
白话:
那种我军出击不利、敌人出击也不利、两军相持不下的地方叫做『支』地。在『支形』地域作战,哪一方离开阵地依托,都有被击败的危险,所以即便敌人利诱我军,我军也不能贸然出击;相反地,可以带领部队脱离阵地,佯作撤退,诱使敌人向我追击,待敌开始脱离其阵地而又没全部离开时,我军再调头发起攻击,这种战法对我军是有利的。
西西留注:
在【孙子兵法】中,地形可分为六种:
通、挂、支、隘、险、远
■ 通地 - 即是敌我双方可以通畅的抵达的地域
■ 挂地 - 可以轻易的进入,却很难能够出来的地域
■ 支地 - 哪一方离开阵地依托,都有被击败的危险的地域
■ 隘地 - 两山之间狭谷地带
■ 险地 - 崎岖不平的地域
■ 远地 - 行军、运输都不便利的地域

如果以孙子兵法归类,目前霹雳州议会的情势属『支』地。


塔利班从来也没有阅读过《孙子兵法》,或许有,我不知道,可是他们应用这种战略已经出神入化,他们将强大的苏联军事武装给打了落花流水,卷起尾巴逃回莫斯科了。他们只有来复枪,要如何才能战胜苏联的坦克、火箭炮和武装直升机呢?如果是在常规战场的话,苏联人老早就把你剁成肉酱了。

是这样的,别在常规战场和苏联人正面交火,苏联人在常规战场是战无不胜的,因此,避免开辟战场,将苏联人赶到山区中,苏联陆军没有受过山地战的训练,再加上他们的坦克在山区将无用武之地,而且那些武装直升机觉得山区是极度险峻的。

于是,塔利班这样做了,他们熟悉山区的程度就如同探囊中物。他们可以闭着眼睛在山区中爬高爬低。当苏联人进入这些山区时,塔利班就将他们打得屁滚尿流。结果,苏联人不干了,收拾包袱回家了,可是那是他们无数的士兵的裹尸袋被送回会莫斯科之后才发生的事。

这样看来,昨日在怡保发生了什么事呢?回教党本身能够轻易的动员五万名支持者,可是却几乎没有太多的抵抗。没错!那里有路障和上千名警员,就立法议院内外就已经有整百名警员在驻守着,民联可以轻易的破解这些,可是这些都没有发生,为什麽呢?

安华不在怡保,哈迪阿旺也不在,林吉祥虽然有在,可是却不准进入,当他们拒绝了他,他就走开了,他们并没有任何的企图强制进入州议会。许多人一直在期望着的"巴士底"大暴动并没发生,为什么呢?

是否是出于自满呢?他们是否在想,民联会在无需费神的情况下轻易获胜呢?他们是这样的宁顽不灵吗?他们是否是把我们出卖了?是的,以上就是首先浮现在我脑子的几个问题,睡眠不足只允许我想出这些问题,却思考不出答案。

我不认为任何在上面所提到的,我不认为是因为疏忽或是不关心才造成的,我认为民联在策划时预估了任何的细节,他们完全知道事情进展会是怎样,我相信国阵正在被民联玩弄在手掌心中。

可是我却是个疑心重的人,就像敦马哈迪医生常说的那样。我常常会寻找其中的"阴谋理论",我常认为事情的后面总有更多的玄机,我认为政客都是魔术师,他们用右手吸引你的注意力,而实际上玩把戏的是在左手。

这是否是昨日发生在怡保的事呢?这是否就是为何民联看来只是做出象征式的抵抗,好让人觉得他们已经尽力了呢?也许是,也许不是!

面对事实吧!当苏丹开除尼查,并以赞比里取代他的那时起,民联已经失去了这个州属,现在民联在州议会中的议席比国阵少,昨日在怡保所发生的事不过是在确认这个事实——民联已经不再是霹雳州政府了。

民联可以付诸于流血武力,可是这能让他们重新获得这个州吗?他们这样做的话,将给警方一个理由使用《内安法令》逮捕每一个人,然后在霹雳州宣布军事管制,就像三十年前他们在吉兰丹※所干下的那样,而我也在之前提过这个事件。这也就是说,民主议会将会被冻结,他们可以在没有州议会这个"包袱"的情况下掌管霹雳州。巫统可以在没有反对党的情况下为所欲为,因为州议会已经不存在,因此也不会在州议会中遭到任何的反对声浪了。
※当年执政的回教党州议员,通过对该党本身的州务大臣莫哈末纳希尔(Mohamed Nasir)的不信任动议。由于莫哈末纳希尔拒绝辞职,结果这赋予国阵掌控的中央政府机会宣布该州在1977年11月8日进入紧急状况,并较后宣布举行选举,更在1978年夺回该州政权。

我相信民联已经心知肚明,他们无法在昨日怡保的军事行动中获胜,它甚至要在法庭中赢得司法上的胜利也成了一个问题。因此,唯一能做的是,任由国阵做他们想做的事,而这将转而使人民嗔怒。

如果发生了流血事件,人民可能会责怪民联,而不是国阵。当然,国阵是很凶残的,民联知道也知道国阵是凶残的,那为何要促使他们使出暴力,而让人民暴露在这个危险中呢?民联必须要照顾人民的利益,以及保护他们的安全。既然知道国阵是凶残的,却还将人民暴露在危险中的话,民联将是不负责任的。

如果不幸的事发生在人民身上的话,他们将会这样反应,就因为如此,昨天民联很聪明的回避了暴力,任由国阵在怡保为所欲为。到了今天,更多的人民对国阵更加的反感,他们将会在来届大选或补选中投选民联,以显示他们的厌恶。他们也许喜欢民联,并不表示他们会投民联,可是自从昨天发生在怡保的大溃败后,很肯定的,他们将会投民联,因为现在他们对国阵恨之入骨。

因此,发生在西华身上的事是个“小小挫折”吗?他们是否事先盘算到这些,而同时国阵也完全凭着他们的估计而自投罗网了呢?总而言之,这个州已经在多个月前就沦陷了,赢得昨日的州议会之战并不意味着他们已经重新获得了这个州,甚至,会引发其他问题,其中一个就是人民的安全。

当然,这不过是我的一家之言,我也许说错,我不知道。我宁愿相信所发生的事不过是民联的计划,而计划如实进行了。我希望,同时也祈祷民联已经铺下陷阱,让国阵自投罗网。

就如同我说过的,我不是政治家,我和政治家的想法是不同的,可是我希望我正在思考的是他们一直以来都曾想过的,在怡保所发生的事也许看来像是被击败了,可是实际上确是政治性的胜利,时间将会解答一切。

他们说:『鹿死谁手,笑傲江湖』※。昨天在怡保,真的足以『笑傲江湖』了吗?或是这个『笑傲江湖』的人士最终等着被人笑呢?谁将会是最终『笑傲江湖』的人呢?政客实在太『迂回』了。
※he who has the last laugh has the best laugh

在这个事件中,我是否是太过理想主义了呢?

What RM25 million can buy, something that goes hee-haw (UPDATED)
Raja Petra Kamarudin
Friday, 08 May 2009 18:54

Do I hear a nationwide boycott in the making? Or are the Chinese still going to continue giving money to Vincent Tan and then blame the Malays for what happened in Perak?


Hee: I didn't use pepper spray

Picture:Click to zoom

Hee described the sitting as a "nightmare" and claimed that her former DAP colleagues were out to harass her.

She also complained that she was negatively portrayed by press reports.

She said that the note thrown at her was a RM1 note, not a RM50 note as reported in the media.

To set the record straight, she said her former party colleague Thomas Su (DAP-Pasir Pinji) waved a RM50 in front of her but did not hand her the note.

"If I was given RM50, I will keep it and give it to someone in need. But he is a ‘kedekut' (cheapskate). He held on to it and waved it. I know he is 'kedekut'." she said.

On whether she had used the pepper spray against Yew Tian Hoe (DAP-Aulong), Hee said that she pointed her hotel key-chain, not a pepper spray canister.

"It is just a key-chain. 'Hati mereka ada hantu' (They have a guilty conscience)," she said, adding that she is suffering body aches from the scuffles.

However, a clip taken during the assembly yesterday did show Hee pointing what appeared to be a pepper spray canister at Yew (photo above).

An extract from Malaysiakini, 8 May 2009
*************************************************

The Deputy Speaker of the Perak State Assembly, Hee Yit Fong, was not only the key person in allowing Barisan Nasional to grab power in Perak -- and she has been going around boasting about it; that she was the key person -- but was also the key person in getting V Sivakumar removed from the hall like a sack of potatoes. And she was paid RM25 million to cross over to Barisan Nasional.

Actually, it was DAP’s fault. For some time now she had been grumbling that she is not being properly treated and was not being given due recognition but the party leadership did not do anything about her grouses.

Some say it was an internal struggle within DAP, which is not uncommon for any political party, as many, if not most, of those in politics are in it for personal gain and not to serve the rakyat. DAP is not alien to internal squabbles. No political party is, whether it is Barisan Nasional or Pakatan Rakyat. In fact, these internal squabbles are ongoing even as you read this.

The straw that broke the camel’s back, or donkey’s back as many now call Hee, was when everyone was given a Camry except her. They argued that she is not able to drive anyway. So why does she need a car? Her reckoning is that she is a Deputy Speaker. So why can’t they also provide her a driver together with the car if she is not able to drive?

Whatever it may be, the thing that prompted her to abandon the party that no longer appreciated her services was the RM25 million that Vincent Tan of Berjaya paid her. Yes, she was paid a cool RM25 million in cash, more money than any Malaysia Today reader will see it many lifetimes.

Okay, so what are we going to do about it? We lament about her being a traitor. We label her a prostitute. We call her all sorts of names. But have we forgotten that there can only be prostitutes as long as there are clients who pay for the services of prostitutes. And in the case of Hee the client is Vincent Tan.

So punish Hee by all means. Call her all sorts of names if that makes you happy. But don’t forget to also punish the man who turned her into a prostitute, Vincent Tan.

How many of you still eat or shop or gamble at establishments owned by Vincent Tan? Is it not time we organised a nationwide boycott of anything and everything that Vincent Tan has an interest in. You know which establishments I am talking about. And aren’t Chinese the biggest gamblers and is not Vincent Tan getting rich with your hard-earned money which you are willingly and gladly handing over to him?

Stop grumbling. Start doing something. As Lee Iacocca said, “Don’t get mad, get even!” And it is time to stop getting mad and to start getting even.

Boycott, boycott, boycott! This must be the new name of the game. Vincent Tan gave RM25 million of YOUR hard-earned money to Hee. Stop giving him more money, which he will use to buy off more Pakatan Rakyat Members of Parliament and State Assemblypersons.

Perak is only the first. It is not going to be the last. Vincent Tan is talking to more Pakatan Rakyat lawmakers and enticing them with RM10 million to RM25 million each to cross over. By the time the next general election is upon us, maybe only Kelantan will remain a Pakatan Rakyat state. Kedah, Penang and Selangor would probably go the way of Perak in time to come.

That is Najib’s grand design. And Vincent Tan is bankrolling the entire operation. Stop cursing the Malays, in particular the Umno Malays. The Malays would not achieve much without Chinese money. And only the Chinese can punish Chinese such as Vincent Tan because the Chinese are bigger gamblers than the Malays and the Malays do not have that kind of money to burn like the Chinese do.

Do I hear a nationwide boycott in the making? Or are the Chinese still going to continue giving money to Vincent Tan and then blame the Malays for what happened in Perak?

毫不留情∶两千五百万令吉能买什么,令人嘻哈发狂?

出处∶Malaysia Today
原题∶No Hold Barred∶What RM25 million can buy, something that goes hee-haw
作者  ∶拉惹柏特拉

我是否听到了一个全国性的杯葛在酝酿中了呢?或者华人还是继续给陈志远钱,然后因为在霹雳发生的事情来责怪马来人呢?

许月凤: 我没有使用胡椒喷剂

许月凤形容议会是个「恶梦」 ,说她的行动党前同志出来骚扰她。

她也投诉说她被报章负面化。

她说丢向她的是马币一元纸币,不是如媒体报导的五十令吉纸币。

为了澄清,她说她的前政党同志兵如港州议员苏健祥在她面前挥动着一张五十令吉纸币,但没有交给她。

「若有人给我五十令吉,我会收下来,然后送给其他有需要的人。但他是个吝啬鬼,他握着,挥动着,我知道他是吝啬鬼。」她说道。

许月凤在当天的霹雳州议会中手握事物对向姚天和,被问及她可曾用胡椒剂喷射姚天和时,她说她是用酒店的锁匙圈对着他,不是胡椒喷剂。

「那只是一把锁匙圈,是他们心里有鬼。」她这么说道,还投诉说在混乱中,弄得她身体发痛。

无论如何,一段当天的影片显示许月凤看来是用胡椒喷剂对着姚天和(看以下照片)。

摘自2009年5月8日《当今大马》
[Hee+Yit+Foong.jpg]
在霹雳立法议会中,许月凤手握不明设备指向姚天和

*************************************************

霹雳议会副议长许月凤不单是让国阵夺权的关键人物,她还到处吹嘘说,她是让西华像一袋马铃薯那样被拖出议会的关键人物,她是收了两千五百万令吉跳到国阵的那个人。

实际上,这是行动党的错,她已经埋怨了好一阵子说她没有得到应有的对待和认可,但是党高层完全忽视她的诉苦。

有的说这是行动党内部纠纷,这毕竟在今天的政党来说也不是什么新鲜事。许多人,即使不是大多数的话,都有都有这种为私利而不是为了服务人民的在政党内。行动党也不例外。没有政党能够例外。不管是国阵还是民联。实际上,在你读着这篇文章时,内部纠纷还是继续进行着。

这个许多人都认为是「引清入关的吴三桂」许月凤在当每个人都得到一辆冠丽车,除了她的时候,她就决定「打开城门」了。他们说她都不能驾车,还需要什么车呢?她的辩词是她是个副议长,若她不能驾车,为何他们不给她一个司机和车呢?

不管怎样,让她丢弃不再看重她服务的政党的东西,是成功集团的陈志远付给她的那两千五百万令吉。是的,花绿绿的现金马币2千5百万元,这是许多《今日大马》读者在许多世都看不到这么多的钞票。

好吧,那我们要怎么办?我们骂她是叛徒,当她是妓女,叫她各种各样的名称。但我们忘记只有嫖客的存在,才有妓女的出现。在许月凤的情况,她的嫖客是陈志远。

尽管以各种方式去惩罚许月凤吧!假如这样你也爽的话,叫她各种各样的名称吧!不过别忘了也要惩罚把她变成妓女的那个嫖客——陈志远。

你们之中还有许多人在陈志远的旗下机构饮食或购物呢!我们是否到时候要来个全国陈志远大杯葛了呢?若你知道我所说的什么机构,那么华人不就是最大的赌徒,而陈志远不就是靠你们的血汗钱致富的吗?这些钱也是心甘情愿交给他的。

不要再埋怨了,开始做点东西吧!就像李•艾柯卡(Lee Iacocca)曾说的那样∶「别生气,要争回一口气!」※。现在就是不能生气,要争回一口气的时候。
※Don’t get mad, get even!

杯葛!杯葛!被葛!这就是新游戏的名称。陈志远给了许月凤马币两千五百万你的血汗钱,别再给他更多的钱了,他会用来收买更多的民联人民代议士。

霹雳只是开头,也不会是最后一个。陈志远与更多的民联立法议员接头,所出的跳槽价从马币一千万到两千五百万元。到了下个大选,也许只有吉兰丹还是民联州属,吉打、槟城和雪兰莪也许到时候就会走上霹雳的路。

那就是纳吉的大蓝图,陈志远就负责整个计划的费用。别再诅咒马来人了,特别是巫统的马来人。没有华人的钱,马来人做不到什么东西出来,也只有华人才能惩罚像陈志远那样的华人,因为华人是比马来人更大的赌徒,而马来人也没有那些钱来学华人那样来烧钱。

我是否听到了一个全国性的杯葛在酝酿中了呢?或者华人还是继续给陈志远钱,然后因为在霹雳发生的事情来责怪马来人呢?

叫人感到心酸的文章,可怜天下父母心!

My most sincere apology to the nation
Raja Petra Kamarudin
Thursday, 21 May 2009 06:21

I made it very clear there would be no negotiations. How can I agree to bribing police officers to get my son off the hook after speaking out against crime, corruption, abuse of power and cover-ups of criminal acts by those who walk in the corridors of power?

I offer no excuses. My wife, Marina, and I have five children, all now grown up. Four have made a life for themselves -- two are now married and have blessed us with four grandchildren. One, Raja Azman, left home when he was still in lower secondary school and chose to end all ties with the family. That was about 18 years ago or so.

Since he left home, he has been in and out of trouble, the result of living on the streets and sleeping in the back alleys of Kuala Lumpur. Invariably, life on the streets like an urchin turned him into what he is today.

Muslims believe that heaven lies beneath the feet of one’s mother. It is therefore seldom a Muslim mother would bring herself to curse her offspring. Doing so would condemn that child for eternity. That is what Muslims believe.

My wife made it very clear to our prodigal son that he turns his back on the family and resorts to a life of crime at his own peril. It does not matter the severity of the crime. Crime is crime whatever it may be, big or small. And is it not the tendency that petty criminals eventually migrate to hardcore crimes? He therefore invites his mother’s curse if he brings shame to the family. That was my wife’s final word on the matter.

Our son was warned that if he ever got into trouble he was entirely on his own. He can’t expect the family that he has disowned to rally to his side. He has made his bed so he must now lie in it. That was our irrevocable and uncompromising stand and this was delivered in no uncertainty to our son. He would have to make the decision as to what it was going to be.

Marina and I received a phone call a couple of months ago that our son, yet again, was in trouble. It was a call from a police officer. The phone was passed to our son so that we could be assured he was in the hands of the police. Although it was a huge disappointment to both of us, it was no shock, neither a surprise. This was yet another brush with the law that our son has got himself into over more than a decade.

The purpose for the phone call became clearer after our son handed the phone back to the police officer. They wanted to negotiate a settlement. The problem is small, we were told. This can be settled easily enough. They know we would rather bury this problem than let it become public knowledge. We are, after all, high profile. And bad publicity such as this would not help our image.

I made it very clear there would be no negotiations. How can I agree to bribing police officers to get my son off the hook after speaking out against crime, corruption, abuse of power and cover-ups of criminal acts by those who walk in the corridors of power? Sure, maybe no one would know about it. Once I pay up, the matter will be buried so deep no one would be the wiser. But I would know. My wife would know. My family would know. And the police officers who I had bribed would know.

How can I continue speaking out against what ails this country when I am not able to walk the talk? It is so easy to talk when you have nothing to lose, except maybe your freedom. But when it comes to a member of your family, you compromise your principles and violate the very thing that you speak out against.

When I hung up the phone, I could see the pain in my wife’s heart. After all, are not the eyes the window to the heart? Which mother can abandon a child, never mind how evil that child may be. It takes a very determined woman to put principles before the welfare of the family.

We knew it was with dire consequences that we had turned down the offer to settle the matter. We would be made to pay dearly for our stubbornness. They would make sure that we would suffer shame never before suffered by our family.

My children are devastated. The thought of our son having to spend a good part of his life in prison is only part of it. The fact that he carries the family name and that this would be held against the family was their main concern. They knew we would be made to suffer for what Raja Azman had done.

This was a predicament we would never be able to avoid. It would have been so simple to just agree to meet the police officers and pay them the money they wanted and all would have been settled. But it would have been settled only for that short moment in time. I would have to carry the knowledge that I sold out my principles and was not able to walk the talk for the rest of my life.

How can I continue doing what I am doing knowing that I am not able to practice what I preach? I would lose the moral high ground and would no longer be qualified to talk about change and about a better Malaysia. I am, after all, as corrupted as those people who walk in the corridors of power. My son may walk free. But I shall be taking his place in prison -- not a physical prison, but a prisoner of my own nagging conscience, which will haunt me till my last day on earth.

As a father, it was a most difficult choice I had to make. It was more difficult for Marina, the mother who gave birth to that son. We held each other’s hands and looked each other in the eye without speaking. Words were unnecessary. In that silence our hearts did all the talking. We knew we had to bite the bullet and face whatever lies ahead of us without wavering.

Marina and I apologise to the nation for what our son has done. As parents, Marina and I accept that responsibility.

我对国人最由衷的道歉

翻译  ∶ECS283
校对注解∶西西留

我非常清楚地表示拒绝协商,我怎么能够在大谈犯罪、贪污、滥权、当权者试图掩饰罪行的行为后,却为了要让我的儿子逃罪,而同意贿赂警官呢?

我不想给任何借口,我的妻子与我生有五子,都已长大成人。其中四个都能自力过着安稳生活,其中两个还为我们添了四个小孙。我的儿子拉惹阿兹曼则在中学时,选择与家人断绝关系。那大概是十八年前的事情了。

自从离家出走后,他惹上不少麻烦,这就是生活在吉隆坡街头,睡在后巷的结果。他那刺猬式的街头生活最终让他成了今天的他。

回教徒相信天堂就在母亲脚下,因此信仰回教的母亲不会对她们的孩子诅咒。这么做的话,将永世让孩子痛苦。那是回教徒所相信的。

我的妻子对我们的孽子清楚表明,若他背弃家人,自甘堕落,那就是他咎由自取,怨不得人。这里无关罪行大小,犯罪就是犯罪。不是有说大罪行都是从小犯罪开始的吗?若他为家人带来羞耻,那他就是自招他母亲的诅咒。那是我的妻子对他的最后话语。

我们已经警告过他,他只能自行解决自行招惹的麻烦,别期望他所抛弃的家人会维护他。他必须对他自己的行为负责。我们是很清楚明白地传达了我们不会改变,也不能妥协的立场让他知道。无论发生什么事,他都须要自行决定。

几个月前,我和玛丽娜接到电话说,我们那个儿子又惹上麻烦了。那是来自一位警官的电话。电话后来传给我们的儿子,好让我们确认他确实在警方的手中。虽然这对我们来说是极大的失望, 但我们毫不惊讶。这只是十多年以来,另一宗我们儿子涉及的违法事件。

在我们的儿子把电话交回给警官后,打电话给我们的目的就变得很清楚了,他们要商量私下解决。我们被告知说,这是个小麻烦,可以很容易地就解决的。与其公开,他们知道我们会遮掩这件事。我们毕竟都是高调人士,而像这样的坏事会对我们的形象造成破坏。

我非常清楚地表示拒绝协商,我怎么能够在大谈犯罪、贪污、滥权、当权者试图掩饰罪行的行为后,却为了要让我的儿子逃罪,而同意贿赂警官呢?当然,也许不会有人知道这件事,只要我给了钱,这件事就被深埋起来,没人知道了。但我知道,我的妻子知道,我的家人知道,被贿赂的警官也知道。

若我表里不一,我还能大声评击这个国家所面对的危害吗?若你毫无顾虑,就很容易说话,也许除了你的自由。可是如果事情是发生在是你的家人身上的话,你就会出卖你的原则,违反一切你所说的。

当我挂上电话,我可以看到我妻子心中的痛。毕竟,眼睛不就是心灵之窗吗?有哪一个母亲舍得抛弃孩子,即是她的孩子有多么的坏呢?要一位母亲把原则放在家庭利益之前,需要很大的意志力。

我们知道,推拒协商的结果将会很糟,我们也许会因为我们的顽固而付上很大的代价,他们会确保我们一家人将遭受到从未所有的羞辱。

我的孩子们都深受打击,其中之一是我们的儿子将在监牢中浪费他生命中的一些好时光的看法,主要的是他带着家族的名字,这让家族蒙羞。他们知道,因为拉惹阿兹曼的所作所为,他们将深受其痛。

这是我们无法避免的情况,只是同意与警官见面,给他们所要的钱,就能解决问题。这是多么简单的事情。但是这只能解决一时而已,我却因此而需要永远记起我出卖过我的原则,从此再也不能问心无愧了。

若我不能心口如一,我还能继续做我在做的事情吗?我再也没有道德去谈什么改革和更好的马来西亚了。我,毕竟还是与那些当官的同样贪腐,我的儿子也许能够自由,当我将代替他坐牢,我自己良知的牢,直到我死去为止。

身为一个父亲,这是我必须做出的最艰难选择。对生他的玛丽娜来说,更加为难。我们紧握对方双手,相对无言。一切都尽在不言中了,我们知道我们需要咬紧牙关,坚定面对在我们面前等着的任何事物。

我和玛丽娜为我们的儿子的作为向国民道歉。身为父母,我和玛丽娜都责无旁貸。
