Imprinted on the background are four significant landmarks: the National Palace, Perdana Putra, the Parliament building and the Palace of Justice. These reflect the four pillars of the nation: the institution of the Monarchy, the Executive, the Legislature and the Judiciary respectively.

Ong Tee Keat, ex MCA President and ex MCA member: I won’t return to politics…

Ex MCA President, Ong Tee Keat, quits MCA: I would rather erase the history of my presence in MCA…

Free Malaysia Today @fmtoday

I’m far happier doing business, says ex-MCA president

zzzfmt.jpg

PETALING JAYA: Former MCA president Ong Tee Keat revealed today he has received offers to rejoin politics but had declined these offers.

Ong said he has left the world of politics and is much happier.

“I have forgotten politics. Now, I am involved in business,” he said.

Declining to reveal those who made the offer, the 63-year-old said in politics there are a lot of enemies but in business there are only competitors.

He was speaking to reporters after a memorandum of understanding between The Royal Bumbon Resort Holdings and Resorts Savers Inc.

The 37ha project, costing RM1.2 billion, involves developing a modern cancer and stem cell centre with resorts and a Malaysia MySecond Home centre in Bumbon Island, Langkawi.

In 2017, Ong left MCA, the party he once led. He had been an MCA member for more than 30 years.

Ong had served as Ampang Jaya MP for five terms.

Ong was appointed transport minister after the 2008 general election and was elected MCA president the same year.

New Zealand: Is the fear of Islamization realistic?

24 March 2019

March 21, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – I live in New Zealand. I’ve become alarmed at developments in my country since the shootings last Friday. What I see unfolding seems so disproportionate to the magnitude of the crime. It seems like I’ve woken up and all of a sudden live in an Islamic State.

Here are some highlights of what’s unfolding:

  • The thought police are out in full force and people are being scrutinized for “hate speech”.  Green ribbons are being worn as a symbol against hate.
  • Mosques and many of the prayer rooms continue to be protected by armed police (police aren’t usually armed in my country).
  • Vigils are being held all over the place in solidarity with the victims. These seem to have morphed into what amounts to support for the Islamic religion. One Catholic bishop held one last Sunday afternoon in the Ponsonby church.  After prayers there, they processed over to the mosque, which is on the opposite side of the road and prayed and met there.
  • Whitcoulls, one of our book stores, probably the oldest, has removed Jordan Peterson’s book “12 Rules for Life” from its shelves because he was photographed with a member of the public wearing an anti-Islamic t-shirt while he was in New Zealand recently. Apparently, that’s being construed as him having something to do with the madman’s agenda.
  • On Tuesday a Muslim prayer was said in Parliament. Just recently all Christian prayer in Parliament was removed.
  • On Friday March 22 at 1:30pm New Zealand will be called to prayer…Islamic prayer that is.  And we will be expected to keep 2 minutes silence after they read the Muslim prayer acknowledging Allah as “great” and Muhammad as his “prophet.” The call to prayer will be broadcasted on national radio stations and TV as well.
  • One top Catholic Church leader will go to the local mosque (Kilbirnie) as well on Friday to stand outside during their prayers as an act of solidarity. The Catholic bishops here have been very sympathetic and playing out their “inter-faith role” with great enthusiasm.
  • Catholic school students have been praying inside mosques.

It seems like we’re living in a different world all of a sudden. It seems that showing our great respect for those who were killed has somehow been manipulated into showing affirmation of the Islamic religion.

New Zealand is now putty in the Islamists’ hands.

The shooting on Friday was terrible. But what has now unfolded is something else entirely and may just be the beginning of something very terrible for New Zealand.

Certainly, on a spiritual level, our crisis has become even deeper.

Please keep New Zealand in your prayers.

By one Peter Mitchell of New Zealand.

I am gonna say it how it is, Jacinda Arden PM of New Zealand you have become a major part of the division problem. You need to step down from your office now.

You forced Parliament to be Submitted yesterday to Islamic Prayers, now you are forcing by demanded strong suggestion all of New Zealand to submit, to Submit to the Islamic call to prayer by it being played over the airways on NZ.

It is one thing to have a moments silence which I think most New Zealanders would be honourable and respectful in regards to this depraved loss of life and the terrorising of New Zealand citizens and visitors at 2 mosques and the horrific loss of so many lives and loved ones, I two stand in silence and in honourable respect and deep sadness reflecting on this unnecessary loss of precious life.

However, New Zealand is not an Islamic Country, yet has those of Islamic faith welcomed within her bounds, and you are correct, when migrants come to our beautiful country they assimilate or should assimilate and become “They are us”. They are welcomed with freedom to worship and right to assemble.

However, we do not become a them, this is a huge difference. We have the right to not worship or worship elsewhere, or worship a tree or a stone should we wish, it’s called freedom paid for on the backs of our fathers and mothers and forebears.

I am getting a little sick of you as the PM and the media using Islam as a race card. ISLAM is not a RACE. Islam is a religious sect or ideology and you Jacinda are forcing through as head of state Islam on your nation.

You have no right to stand in the highest office of the nation and use your position to influence and to insist this type of response. You must remain neutral in your decisions for the sake of all New Zealanders, you have gone too far. You are not an Imam you are the Prime Minister and as such you have no right or position in calling all New Zealanders to Islamic Prayer you are so outside of the boundaries of your office.

I will say it again and most likely be attacked for it. You have given so much but now so much more will be demanded.

I want to remind you that there is no such thing as Government Funded, there is only “Tax Payer Citizen Funded”. When you say we will pay and ACC will pay or I will ensure this will be paid you are actually saying every NZ tax payer will pay, making an instsnt decision over and above all ACC protocols and procedure, ok I get it.

However New Zealand is not guilty of this crime a fundamentalist fool is. Yet going to these far responses in itself is (forcing by empowered suggestion bordering demand from your office) is also extreme and fundamentalist.

On another note Jacinda since when did Gang Patch Members have a security guards license ? Since when were Patched gang members allowed to patrol the streets and the front of public buildings and houses of worship in Gang Colours and regalia? Please explain.

You are so quick to demand or suggest that innocent farmers and citizens give up their guns and armoury. Because of one deranged man? Again an extremist response.

If you wish to wear your hajib I honour and respect your right to do so, if you wish to bow down and in knelt prostrate position on the floor under the sound of the Islamic Call to prayer and Honour Allah I respect your right to do so, but as PM you do NOT HAVE THE RIGHT TO FORCE OR EVEN SUGGEST THIS ON OTHERS IN YOUR OFFICIAL CAPACITY OF OFFICE.

If that is what you want all of NZ to do then you must relinquish your office and your authority first and do this from grass roots not from entitlement of the nations head office In this.

You have gone way too far, perhaps you should step aside from your headship as you have now gone far beyond your official responsibilities.

For the record – Islam does not mean Peace, it means Peace by Submission!!

https://www.skynews.com.au/details/_6016598378001

Please don’t misinterpret me, the only right response to the attacks on New Zealand’s citizens and visitors including those proclaiming and identifying as Muslim by faith is unconditional love and kindness, however it is not – That others are to be made subjects of Islam, by your decree.

I’ll own it. Peter Mitchell

‘This is not us!’: Destiny Church’s Brian Tamaki slams Muslim call to prayer

22 Mar, 2019 10:07am

Destiny Church’s Brian Tamaki has slammed the Muslim call to prayer which will take place at 1.30pm today.

Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern announced the prayer would take place to recognise the lives lost in the Christchurch terrorist attacks last Friday.

Ardern said the prayer would be followed by two minutes of silence at 1.32pm.

“Two minutes of silence is okay but the Islamic prayer will sound? it contains this line ‘there is no God but Allah’, well I disagree,” Tamaki wrote on Twitter.

“Jesus Christ is the only true God … this is not us!”

Hold on a mo..On Friday..at least for a moment NZ will become a Muslim Nation..2min of silence is ok but th Islamic Prayer will sound? it contains this line “..there is no God but Allah” well I Disagree..”Jesus Christ “ is th only True God..This is Not US!

Fifty people lost their lives in the attacks on two Christchurch mosques and the alleged gunman has been charged with murder.

Earlier today, Ardern announced plans for a National Memorial Service and said everyone can reflect on the attacks tomorrow as they please.

“How we choose to reflect during the silence will be different for each of us,” she said.

“Everyone should do what feels right for them, wherever they are – at home, at work, at school.

“I know many New Zealanders wish to mark the week that has passed since the terrorist attack, and to support the Muslim community as they return to mosques.”

Meanwhile, Tamaki said the announcement of the Muslim call to prayer was an abuse of her Prime Ministerial power.

“This is Offensive to all True Christians in Aotearoa … Our National Identity is at stake,” he posted on Twitter.

“PM Jacinda Ardern has abused her Prime Ministerial decree in allowing ‘Allah as the only true God to be sounded in Muslim prayer across the airwaves in our nation tomorrow.”

The responses to Tamaki’s comments have been swift and expectedly brutal.

“Don’t pray it then,” one person tweeted.

“The space is for others to pray it unashamed, unafraid – as they should always have had the absolute freedom to. Allow them this comfort amid the nightmare.

“Keep your mouth shut, and attempt to open your heart to humanity in the way that God asks you to.”

Some question the validity of Tamaki’s statements.

“Gosh, well then, it’s probably quite a good thing that your opinions really do not matter to the rest of us,” said one commenter.

“‘Christians’ say the problem is Christianity isn’t being taught in schools. With ‘Bishop’ Brian Tamaki it’s clear that the real problem is Christianity isn’t taught in church,” said one Twitter user.

Some online commenters were confused by Tamaki’s comment Jesus Christ was the “only true God”.

“Brian, he was the son of God, he called God his father. Please read that book again. Properly,” said one person.

“Jesus Christ is God?? Blimey that’s different,” said another.

Lokman and other Umno supporters of Najib turned violent against 6 UM students demonstrating against Najib at #Bossku evnt…

23 March 2019

..

KUALA LUMPUR, March 23 — The police said today that 11 reports have been lodged so far over the assault by supporters of Datuk Seri Najib Razak against Universiti Malaya (UM) students at a restaurant in front of the campus yesterday afternoon.

Sinar Harian reported acting deputy KL police chief SAC Rusdi Mohd Isa as saying statements from several witnesses are still being recorded.

“We will record statements from both sides involved, as well as witnesses in the location at the time,” he said.

He added the investigation will be under Section 160 of the Penal Code, where those found guilty of committing an affray faces either six months’ imprisonment, being fined up to RM1,000, or both.

The incident occurred at dialogue session with former prime minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak, when a group of six students were seen holding placards demanding to know where Najib kept the RM2.6 billion, calling him shameless, as well as a clown caricature of his face.

This triggered Najib’s supporters to begin hurling abuse at them, as well as attempts to wrest away the placards, and subsequently physical altercations including slaps, strangling and headlocks. The incident was eventually broken up by police on site nearby the location.

The students have also filed a police report over the incident late last night.

The incident, which was caught on video and made viral almost immediately, was strongly condemned even by Umno leaders. However, the party has not stated if they would punish members involved in the fracas.

Malaysiakini claims interns physically harassed by Umno leaders

KUALA LUMPUR, March 22 — Malaysiakini accused today two Umno leaders of harassing two of its female intern reporters who were covering Datuk Seri Najib Razak’s meet-and-greet at Universiti Malaya.According to a report by Malaysiakini, one of their interns, journalism student Mariam Nizar, 25, said she was harassed by Petaling Jaya Selatan Umno division chief Mutalib Abdul Rahim and Umno supreme council member Datuk Lokman Noor Adam.

“A man wearing a jubah (Lokman) put his face near mine, and I told him to move aside and respect my personal space.

“He then told me ‘mak kaulah personal space,’’ she was quoted saying in a police report today.

Both men were supposedly upset with the news portal’s report that Universiti Malaya students protesting against Najib were physically manhandled during a fracas which broke out at the event.

After the scuffle, Mariam reportedly called Malaysiakini’s BM desk editor Jimadie Shah Othman to alert him. Mutalib then snatched his name card from Mariam’s hand and allegedly injured her finger in the process.

Another Malaysiakini intern Ramieza Wahid, 25, was also allegedly harassed and even shoved by either Mutalib or Lokman.

The interns were also verbally abused during the incident, with some calling them stupid” and “liar” as well as other indecent remarks.

Malaysiakini later accompanied them to lodge their police report at the Petaling Jaya police station.

Malaysiakini editor-in-chief Steven Gan had condemned the harassment and stated that such physical or verbal abuse was unwarranted.

“They have crossed the line by verbally and physically attacking our interns who were just doing their job. We must send a loud and clear message that such violence will not be tolerated,” he said.

Najib told Malaysiakini he regretted that journalists were caught up in the fracas and voiced disappointment over the students’ so-called provocation and subsequent commotion.

Did the police arrive late at The Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman Temple? The FRU were only called to the scene as the riot was going on but they were ordered to remain on standby when the Subang Jaya police were informed of the attacks on the vehicles!

From the inquest into the death of M Adib.

We were informed in the early hours this morning at about 2.30am, a large group of at least 50 persons armed with iron rods and parang forcibly entered the Seafield temple and attacked a group of devotees who had gathered there including women.
.
The Subang Jaya police officers finally arrived on the scene following the violence and subsequently cordoned off the area.

Questions are being raised as to why only a single patrol car from the Subang Jaya police force arrived at the scene about 4.15am while the FRU only arrived at about 6am.

“The police were informed of the incident at 2.40am and a team was already at the scene at 2.50am. The district police chief arrived there 30 minutes later,” said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun

FRU didn’t respond to attack on trucks due to ‘standby’ order

Hidir Reduan  |  Published:

INQUEST | The Federal Reserve Unit did not take action when two Fire and Rescue Department vehicles were attacked during the Seafield temple riots last November as they were ordered to remain on standby.

This was revealed today by Shuhaimi Yaakob, who led one of the FRU troops sent to the scene of the riots, at the inquest into the death of firefighter Muhammad Adib Mohd Kassim.

As Shuhaimi told the Coroner’s Court in Shah Alam today, the FRU was told to stand by for further orders when the Subang Jaya police were informed of the attacks on the vehicles in the early hours of Nov 27.

Shuhaimi, the inquest’s 21st witness, said that he had seen two Fire Department vehicles reversing, and that he had discussed the matter with the other FRU troop leaders before trying to contact the district police chief.

“When we could not reach him (district police chief), we tried to reach the deputy. Later we received instruction to remain on standby,” he said.

Shuhaimi explained that according to protocol, FRU troops are – as the name indicates – reserve units that need prior directives from district police chiefs or their deputies.

He said the FRU can only inform district police on what transpires at a given scene before awaiting further orders.

Lawyer Kamaruzaman A Wahab, acting for Adib’s family, then asked Shuhaimi why the FRU did not take action, as they are tasked with controlling riots, and are armed with water cannons and gas launchers, among other equipment.

Shuhaimi replied that the FRU can only take action once the green light is received from district police.

Following protocol

His explanation did not sit well with lawyer Syazlin Mansor, also representing Adib’s family, who asked why the FRU seemed so efficient during previous Bersih mass street rallies.

According to Shuhaimi, the FRU receives prior directives ahead of such planned gatherings. On the night of Nov 27, however, his team were only called to the scene as the riots were occurring.

Syazlin then asked if the FRU would also await further instruction if their own vehicles were attacked on the night of the riots.

“Even if our vehicles were to be attacked, we would first inform those above (in command) at the Subang Jaya police station.

“However, if we are attacked and our personnel are endangered, then we can take action against the attacker (without awaiting orders),” Shuhaimi replied.

IGP denies police were slow to handle temple riot, calls for calm as 17 arrested

SHAH ALAM: The police have denied that they responded slowly to the riots at the Seafield Sri Maha Mariamman Temple in USJ, Subang Jaya.

“The police were informed of the incident at 2.40am and a team was already at the scene at 2.50am. The district police chief arrived there 30 minutes later,” said Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Mohamad Fuzi Harun (pic).

“We have the sequence of events in our diary.

“If we had not acted quickly, there could have been a possibility of a death during the riots,” he said during a press conference on the matter at the Selangor police headquarters Monday night (Nov 26).

Back up was called by the ground team, and 700 more policemen arrived to help control the situation.

The IGP called for all parties, including NGOs and politicians, not to fan racial sentiments.

“I hope these irresponsible parties stop creating speculation. They do not know the real situation.

“All parties should help pacify the situation, not make it worse. We will act strictly on those responsible for this incident,” he said, adding that 29 police reports had been made regarding the incident.

The IGP called on the public to ignore messages and videos that could spark racial tension.

He revealed that as of 9.30pm, 17 suspects have been arrested, all of whom are locals.
.

The Deputy Inspector-General of Police Tan Sri Noor Rashid Ibrahim had been reported earlier as saying that the temple incident was not a racial clash but a land dispute.

He said the incident was sparked off at about 2.30am after a group of about 50 men, believed to be Malays, intruded into the temple.

When several Indian caretakers realised this, they contacted their friends and informed them of the intrusion, resulting in about 200 Indian men rushing there and cordoning off the temple, he said.

“During the siege, the police arrived at the scene. The intruders attempted to flee and a clash erupted between the two groups. As a result, three men were injured while several vehicles were reportedly torched,” said Noor Rashid.

“Perhaps the side wanting to take over (the land) engaged a group of Malay men to facilitate the acquisition.

“It is possible that they are gangsters and, of course, the Indian group attempted to check the intrusion.

“I have to clarify because it is a sensitive issue and I do not want anyone to take advantage (of the situation).

“There is no issue of a racial clash,” said Noor Rashid.

Selangor Journal | THE SRI MAHA MUTHU MARIAMMAN SEAFIELD TEMPLE https://goo.gl/nQLPoc 

See Media Selangor’s other Tweets

We were informed in the early hours this morning at about 2.30am, a large group of at least 50 persons armed with iron rods and parang forcibly entered the Seafield temple and attacked a group of devotees who had gathered there including women.

The ensuing violence resulted in a number of persons injured and hospitalised. A number of vehicles were also torched. It is learnt that during the violence, five devotees were held hostage for some time by the intruders.

The temple devotees finally managed to drive off the intruders, seizing identity cards from several of them.

The Subang Jaya police officers finally arrived on the scene following the violence and subsequently cordoned off the area.

Questions are being raised as to why only a single patrol car from the Subang Jaya police force arrived at the scene about 4.15am while the FRU only arrived at about 6am.

The Subang Jaya police have regrettably issued a statement saying that “pergaduhan antara dua kumpulan bangsa India telah berlaku di dalam kawasan Kuil Sri Mahamariaman …punca kejadian adalah perselisihan faham antara dua kumpulan adalah tentang isu perpindahan kuil..”

This statement is false and irresponsible. It has created much tension amongst the Indian community especially in the light of the late and ineffective response by the Subang Jaya police.

We call upon the IGP to ensure that a corrective statement is immediately issued to set the facts straight. The Subang Jaya police should be investigated and disciplinary action taken.

We condemn this unprovoked attack on the temple.

We call for a full and independent inquiry by the police to establish who is behind this serious attack on the temple and the motive for it. Those responsible for this violence must be caught and punished.

This investigation should be conducted by Bukit Aman and not left to the Subang Jaya police to handle.

May 13: Declassified Documents on the Malaysian Riots of 1969 (Wikipedia)

The book challenges the Malaysian government’s official position on the cause of the 13 May Incident. At the time, the government stated the cause was opposition parties’ creating tensions after the 1969 elections. In contrast, Kua stated that the “ascendant state capitalist class” in the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), the party in power, had intentionally started the riot, backed by the police and army, as a coup d’etat to topple the Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman to implement the new Malay Agenda.

May 13: Declassified Documents on the Malaysian Riots of 1969

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

May 13: Declassified Documents on the Malaysian Riots of 1969 is a book published in 2007 and written by activist and scholar Dr. Kua Kia Soong on the 13 May Incident of 1969. It was published by the human rights group Suaram on the 38th anniversary of the worst racial riot in Malaysian history, which took place mostly in Kuala Lumpur. The official death toll was 196, but independent reporters and other observers estimated up to ten times as many people had died. Three quarters of the casualties were Chinese Malaysians, and 6000 of them were left homeless after fires. As the title suggests, the book is based on declassified documents, which have become available at the Public Record Office at London.

The book challenges the Malaysian government’s official position on the cause of the 13 May Incident. At the time, the government stated the cause was opposition parties’ creating tensions after the 1969 elections. In contrast, Kua stated that the “ascendant state capitalist class” in the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), the party in power, had intentionally started the riot, backed by the police and army, as a coup d’etat to topple the Prime Minister Tunku Abdul Rahman to implement the new Malay Agenda.[1][2]

Due to the book’s charges, numerous politicians called for it to be banned.[3] The Internal Security Ministry seized 10 copies from a major bookstore in Kuala Lumpur several days after the release of the book.[4] Malaysian Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi later indicated that the government did not plan to ban the book.[5]

May 13: Four decades of secrecy exposed

N Surendran  |  Published:

I refer to the malaysiakini report Ministry seizes controversial May 13 book . Dr Kua Kia Soong’s new book, ‘May 13: Declassified Documents on the Malaysian Riots of 1969’ may look like a dry academic thesis, but it moves at a cracking pace. It is also undoubtedly one of the most important books ever published on Malaysian society and politics.

May 13 made this country. Or more accurately, it un-made it. Kua, making use of newly de-classified documents tells us why the May 13 incident happened, and who were the people responsible for it.

The gist of what he has to say is what most people who are not abysmally ignorant have long suspected. That:

  1. the May 13 incident was not a ‘spontaneous’ clash between the Malay and Chinese communities;
  • the key figures in the Alliance government then – such as Tun Abdul Razak – had carefully pre-planned and orchestrated the whole grisly business. Other fellows involved in the ghastly plot or its aftermath in varying degrees were Tun Dr Ismail Abdul Rahman, Harun Idris and Ghazali Shafie.
  • the idea was to oust the Tunku who was none too keen on Razak and his cohorts’ new Malay agenda;
  • the agenda was that of the ‘ascendant Malay state capitalist class’ for political and economic dominance;
  • the Razak-ites got support from the police and army as evidenced by the partiality of the security forces in favour of the Malays in ‘putting down’ the riots. Curfews were strictly enforced in Chinese areas, whereas soldiers were laughing it up with armed hoodlums in Malay areas.

The difference this book makes is that Kua has marshalled clear documentary evidence as proof of the above. He has drawn from ‘stories fielded by foreign correspondents who were in Kuala Lumpur at the time; dispatches by the British High Commission personnel who kept a close watch on events and who had their ears to the ground; dispatches from the foreign and Commonwealth offices covering the South-west Pacific countries, eg Australia, New Zealand, Indonesia and Singapore as well as press releases by the Malaysian Red Cross Society’.

Malaysians have never before seen these documents, hitherto mouldering at the Public Records Office in London and now resurrected. These documents establish, beyond any doubt, the manipulative ruthlessness of men like Tun Razak, Tun Dr Ismail, and Datuk Harun Idris.

And in their wake came half-baked national culture peddlers like Ghazali Shafie. Their actions not only caused dreadful loss of life and untold human suffering; May 13 also wrenched this nation away from the path to true parliamentary democracy and left us with the misshapen perverse system of government we now suffer under.

It gave rise to the panoply of repressive legislation which today makes us ‘cribbed, cabined and confined’ in our own country. It has caused us to enter the 21st century encumbered with a political system that is race-based and parochial. It has led to the propagation of racist concepts such as ‘Ketuanan Melayu’ which has entered into mainstream political discourse.

It has resulted in the creation of a special class of citizens called ‘bumiputeras’ who are given preferential treatment by the state; and made second-class citizens of Malaysians of other races. It has become the great bogey, conjured up by the BN government at every general election in order to terrorise Malaysians into voting for them.

It has shamed our nation – a nation that categorises and marks its citizens by their race from birth.

This is the legacy of May 13, and this will remain the legacy of May 13 until the truth of what caused the bloodbath is revealed to all Malaysians, regardless of race. Its repercussions are all around us. Last year, a cabinet minister waved a keris about as a warning to non-Malays, and now Maybank and Ambank have tried to impose bumiputra quotas on legal firms wanting to do business with them.

This is why the importance of Kua’s new book cannot be overstated. In six sharp, short chapters, he has un-done four decades of concealment, evasion and outright lies. In this fine book, he relentlessly pursues the truth, but always in a matter of fact and un-emotional tone. He has no need to resort to histrionics. The bare facts he has presented for our scrutiny speak for themselves.
