Godfather of ‘Malay’ capitalists Daim Zainuddin said ‘Malays’ will be selling Tom Yam forever

Hishamuddin Rais has become a good entertainer who has helped influence many Malay Gen Y away from Umno and PAS.

Among others, wikipedia describes him as a stand-up comedian. He’s also described as a film director, political and social activist, columnist and book writer.

If Hishamuddin had been given a place in Umno and PAS, I don’t know whether he will still speak up on the failings of the “Malays”.

Umno and PAS have become irrelevant as they can no longer secure a majority in Parliament to form the gov’t.

That’s the bottomline.

Except for Gen Y, “Malays” did not vote for Pakatan Harapan, and will not do so.

The “Malays” made a bed of thorns in GE14.

Now, they have to lie down on it.

The plight of the “Malays” began when Malayalee in Singapore created the concept of “Malay nationalism” to oppose Chinese economic domination of Singapore and Malaya.

Malaya’s real asset is its strategic geographical location between southeast India and south China in particular and between the West and East in general.

Malaya is along the circulation corridor in this part of the world.

That brought Indians to trade with the Orang Asli for jungle products. The first people to settle down in Malaya were the Negrito (Semang) from Kerala, southwest India.

They came 40, 000 years ago. That shows how long the Indians have been coming to Malaya.

The Chinese came about 2, 000 years ago, by the time of the Kadaram civilisation in Kedah.

Later, successive Emperors in Beijing chased out generations of people from south China. They fled to southeast Asia.

Indians were fewer in numbers in southeast Asia because no one chased them out from India.

The last influx was a forcible one when the British paid people to virtually kidnap Tamils to work in the rubber estates in Malaya. Hindraf Makkal Sakthi has documented this.

Otherwise, wild horses wouldn’t drag Indians to Malaya.

The people defined as “Malay” in Article 160 never bothered about anything but rotten politics from the time of the Malayalee in Singapore until now.

That has led to the present plight of the so-called Malays.

Godfather of Corruption Mahathir Mohamad repeatedly refers to “Malays”, no doubt those from Indonesia and not India, as lazy and shameless.

Godfather of “Malay” capitalists Daim Zainuddin said “Malays” will be selling Tom Yam forever.

Daim in fact comes from a family of Buddhists in south Thailand. He has Buddhist relatives, including nephews and cousins, in south Thailand. But that’s another story.

Mahathir playing double game, wooing Malays, betraying others

https://www.malaysia-today.net/2019/03/10/the-umno-pas-marriage-from-chinese-eyes/

https://www.thesundaily.my/local/guan-eng-congratulates-pas-for-winning-support-of-mca-mic-CD665712

https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/opinion/2019/03/10/the-end-is-near-for-ph-unless/

Indians, Chinese, Orang Asal, North Borneo and Sarawak should not be put off by Mahathir playing a double game, wooing Malays, betraying non-Malays.

Indians, Chinese, Orang Asal, North Borneo and Sarawak should stick with Pakatan Harapan (PH) come hell or high water.

Mahathir may not bother about non-Malays. He will continue to woo the Malays even if it means PH losing GE15.

Mahathir, by wooing the Malays, is prepared to lose non-Malay votes.

Except for the Gen Y, PH should forget the Malays.

Malays will never vote for PH.

The people of North Borneo and Sarawak have to decide. The leaders will definately go where they can fill their pockets.

The so-called Bumi Agenda under the BN degenerated into two things:

(1) a handful of people plundering the public treasury through inflated gov’t contracts under the guise of bangsa, agama, negara and “derma”;

(2) freaks, fanatics, racists and extremists insisting on being parasites, leeches, bloodsuckers and freeloaders.

Non-Malays work for a living and pay taxes.

Malays vote for a living and pay no taxes.

Malay supremacy is a figment of the imagination.

As former Finance Minister Daim Zainuddin said, Malays will be selling Tom Yam forever.

Azmin should explain Daim’s statement.

Mahathir and Daim think alike. That’s why they focus on a limited and narrow vision.

Whenever Mahathir gets “frustrated”, he can’t resist pointing out that the Malays are lazy and shameless creatures. That’s just an excuse to facilitate the Malay capitalists continuing to plunder the public treasury through inflated gov’t contracts under the guise of bangsa, agama, negara and “derma”.

Malays take their cue in politics from non-Malays.

They take a position diametrically opposed to non-Malays.

Since non-Malays support PH, Malays support Umno and PAS.

Malays think that PH could not be good for them since non-Malays support it.

Mahathir came to power with non-Malay support and also Malay Gen Y votes.

He should focus on those who supported him.

Instead, he’s trying to woo the Malays by appearing to “favour” them. This has upset the non-Malays and caused him CH and Semenyih.

For example, Mahathir did a u-turn on the ratification of ICERD.

Also, he has so far refused to recognise UEC despite promising to do so.

If he continues at this rate, non-Malay support will slip away from Bersatu, PKR and Amanah. These three parties will be demolished by Umno and PAS.

In PH, only DAP will eventually be left standing.

Indians, Chinese, Orang Asal, Sabah and Sarawak will not vote for Umno and PAS.

That means Umno and PAS will forever be in the Opposition if the voters don’t abandon PH.

MIC and MCA, being Umno stooges, are dead horses.

Except for the Gen Y, Malays will never support PH.

If Mahathir wants to force Malays to support Bersatu, he has to take a leaf from the ISA era, and deregister Umno and PAS.

PAS is unlawful since it took money stolen from 1MDB.

Umno was unlawful on 19 April 2018 when it failed to hold party elections as per its Constitution.

Also, it received money stolen from 1MDB.

Umno president Najib himself stole the money.

Mahathir cannot depend on frogs to increase Bersatu’s numbers. These frogs will lose in GE15 if Umno and PAS are not deregistered.

Malays don’t care about the 1MDB Scandal and corruption. They think it’s not their money. Besides, they think that Najib shared the loot with them.

They believe that, sooner or later, they will also get a turn at plundering the public treasury through inflated gov’t contracts which they can sell to the MCA Chinaman for quick money.

As Mahathir has pointed out, Malays are shameless creatures, besides being lazy. They will refuse to commit hara kiri, as in Japan, after bringing shame to the bangsa, agama, negara and “derma”. The latest is Hadi degenerating into taqiyya (deliberately lying) and kitman (lying by omission) after paying The Sarawak Report RM1.4m to settle a case out of court.

No one can escape the karmic forces since we are making them.

Having said that, karmic forces will exhaust themselves sooner or later.

The state of rotten politics in Malaya will continue as long as the Federal gov’t is not bankrupt.

When the Federal gov’t goes bankrupt, the international community has to come in, and the rotten politics have to end.

Enter the IMF, World Bank, the UN Secretary General’s Office, the UN Security Council, other UN bodies, India, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, UK, US, and Canada.
PH should focus on governance and controlling the narrative.

GE15 is a longtime away.

Don’t respond to rhetoric and polemics from racists, freaks, fanatics and extremists.

Waytha, remember this. Don’t put the Prime Minister in a spot. If you forget, I will remind you. Don’t destroy Hindraf’s 2nd chance in gov’t.

These racists, freaks, fanatics and extremists were addicted to being parasites, leeches, bloodsuckers and freeloaders for 60 years.

Lock up the thieves who plundered the public treasury. Throw away the keys to keep the public from harm.

Umno and PAS should be deregistered. They allegedly received funds stolen from 1MDB.

Also, Umno was unlawful on 19 April 2018 as it failed to hold party elections in time as per its Constitution.

Umno and PAS, being racists, will not get even one vote from Indians, Chinese, Orang Asal, North Borneo and Sarawak.

Umno and PAS can never dream of returning to power without the others.

Also, Malay Gen Y will vote for PH. They had it with their lazy and shameless elders who think they will get their turn at plundering the public treasury.

Except for the Gen Y, the Malays are not bothered about corruption, money laundering and the 1MDB Scandal. They think it’s not their money.

Besides, they think THIEF Najib shared the loot with them.

Mahathir has a limited vision. He’s a pragmatist.

He wants to put in place a political system which will ensure, for the next 40 years, that a small group of Malay capitalists can accumulate capital to try and match the Chinese with capital.

These capitalists allegedly created May 13 to seize power and kill the idea of a strong Opposition in Parliament.

After 1969, we had to wait until 2008 to have a strong Opposition in Parliament.

After 2019, it will take another 40 years for a strong Opposition to emerge in Parliament.

Mahathir is doing what Razak did in 1969 except there’s no May 13.

No one can pull off the same trick twice. Hence, no May 13.

A body at rest, tends to stay at rest, unless acted upon by external forces.

A body in motion, tends to stay in motion, unless acted upon by external forces.

Change comes but seldom and when it comes, it’s sudden.

The more things change, the more they remain the same.

It does not matter who rules in Putrajaya.

What matters is a strong Opposition in Parliament i.e. no two thirds majority for the ruling party. A strong Opposition can unearth all the scandals in gov’t.

Mahathir is against strong Malay parties making up the Opposition.

When the ISA was in force, the focus was on killing Malay Opposition parties and weakening the Opposition in Parliament.

Mahathir wants Malay lawmakers in gov’t by hook or crook. It’s not just about Bersatu.

At the same time, he wants to eliminate Hadi and PAS. He blames PAS for causing Malay disunity. The RM90m and RM200m probes will be used to force PAS to get rid of Hadi. The party will split again.

Is it any wonder that Hadi and PAS ran to see Mahathir recently, cringing, crawling and grovelling? Their so-called support for Mahathir in Parliament and for him to complete a full term, is just to cover their shame.

Mahathir cannot hang around after mid-2020. The longer he stays in office, the more political damage he will do, not only to the Opposition but North Borneo and Sarawak.

Those who defect to Bersatu in Malaya will not win GE15. The Malays will not vote for them. Except for the Gen Y, Malays will not vote for PH.

The Opposition cannot be trusted. They are potential frogs. It’s better for the people to vote for at least some independent lawmakers. This is an idea whose time has come.

With Putrajaya under PH regaining the two-thirds majority in Parliament, the people can write off Opposition lawmakers.

The NGOs, the social media, and the court of public opinion should fill the vacuum left behind by the crumbling Opposition.

The mainstream media is dead.

Not even one alternative media, including malaysiakini, is breaking even.

So, they have become highly vulnerable.

After the police and MCMC seized malaysiakini’s computers several times, many of those who posted anonymous comments in the website were sacked by their employers.

Their stories are slowly making the rounds in the social media.

The BN gov’t in Putrajaya was not ruffled by stories in malaysiakini. They were upset over the comments posted by anonymous critics.

It remains to be seen how the PH gov’t handles comments in the media.

Many of these alternative media only allow comments to be posted in their facebook pages. This makes it easy to lodge anonymous complaints with facebook against those who comment.

A computer decides at facebook whether to take down a comment or block anyone.

So, it’s easy to complain that a comment has violated facebook’s community standards, whatever it means.

facebook subscribers are dropping especially after they spied on facebookers and shared/sold their personal data to companies, advertisers and others.

facebook suffers from a trust deficit.

MA63 . . . Federal Court should look at Article 1(2), not Malaysian Parliament

https://www.thesundaily.my/local/cabinet-agrees-to-amend-article-1-2-of-the-federal-constitution-liew-AY661772

There’s no need for Parliament to amend Article 1(2). The Constitution is supreme over Parliament.

It’s Parliament that amended Article 1(2) on 13 July 1976. So, it’s not proper for Parliament to restore Article 1(2) to its pre-13 July 1976 status. This is a contradiction in terms.

We need a point of law ruling on this.

The High Court of Borneo can refer the matter to the Federal Court.

Only the Federal Court can sit as the Constitutional Court.

The Federal Court can declare the 13 July 1976 amendment to Article 1(2) as null and void or otherwise.

In looking at Article 1(2), the Federal Court would also have to look at the Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) and the other constitutional documents on Malaysia.

If the Federal Court declares MA63 does not have force of law, then there’s no basis for North Borneo and Sarawak to be in Federation with Malaya.

North Borneo, to digress a little, must not be referred to as Sabah. Sabah, in fact, is the Sulu name for a kind of banana found in the southern part of EssZone (Eastern Sabah Security Zone).

The defunct Sulu sultanate, under a puppet “sultan” installed by Manila, transferred the right to collect toll along the main waterway in southern EssZone, and by extension northern EssZone, to the Government of the Philippines.

The “sultan” claims he transferred “sovereignty” over greater Sabah i.e. including northern EssZone to the Philippines.

Brunei denies transferring the right to collect toll along the main waterway in northern EssZone to the Sulu sultan.

President Macapagal said in 1962 that the “Sabah claim” would not have arisen if the British had given independence to North Borneo before they departed.

Malaysia, to this day, pays an annual compensation to the heirs of the Sulu sultan for giving up the right to collect toll along the main waterway in southern EssZone and northern EssZone.

This is similar to the annual purses the British gave the sultans in Malaya after they had to stop collecting toll at certain main rivermouths.

Having said that, the Customs Union of North Borneo, Sarawak and Malaya — the Common Market — will eventually be the only remnant of Malaysia in Borneo.

The oil and gasfields in Borneo, held by Malaysia, have to be returned to North Borneo and Sarawak in their entirety.

North Borneo and Sarawak in the meantime should contribute only to the Borneo portion for the upkeep of Defence, Internal Security, Foreign Affairs and the Cabinet/Parliamentary Committee on the Malaysian Common Market.

North Borneo and Sarawak must withdraw from all other Federal Cabinet posts or risk MA63 continuing to be a non-starter.

MA63 has been a non-starter for 56 years. To add insult to injury, Article 1(2) was amended on 13 July 1976 to reduce North Borneo and Sarawak from Equal Partnership in Malaysia with Malaya to the status of states as in Malaya.

Defence, Internal Security and Foreign Affairs will be phased out when the two Borneo territories move from autonomy and self-government to independence.

Self-government and independence follows Acts of the Malaysian Parliament. Singapore became independent in 1965 when the Malaysian Parliament passed an Act.

If Malaysia continues to stay in Borneo, it will be confirmed the people of North Borneo and Sarawak have lost their sovereignty to a handful of leaders in Putrajaya.

The time has come for North Borneo and Sarawak to seize the initiative on MA63. The onus is on them rather than the MA63 Committee headed by Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad. Mahathir’s Committee is just talk shop to delay the inevitable. Nothing will come out of the Mahathir Committee.

Article 8 of MA63 says that Sabah and Sarawak can take their own measures to enforce and implement MA63, without having to amend the Federal Constitution.

Article 8, Malaysia Agreement 1963 (in part):

The Governments of the Federation of Malaya, North Borneo and Sarawak will take such legislative, executive or other action as may be required to implement the assurances, undertakings, recommendations …. in so far as they are not implemented by express provision of the Constitution of Malaysia.

The issue is compliance on MA63, not only by the Federal gov’t but also the North Borneo and Sarawak gov’ts.

MA63, not a word more, not a word less. It’s a constitutional document on Malaysia along with the other constitutional documents.

It doesn’t matter what has been incorporated from MA63 in the Federal Constitution and what has been left out. In a recent case, the Federal Court ruled that only what has been incorporated from MA63 in the Federal Constitution is law.

MA63, like the Federal Constitution, is not law but as the basis for North Borneo and Sarawak to be in Federation with Malaya, it has force of law.

The Federal Constitution, as the ultimate political document in Malaya, has force of law. Article 160 defines Federation as that set up by the Federation of Malaya Agreement 1948 and reinforced by the Federation of Malaya Independence Act 1957.

The Malaysia in Article 160 is not the Malaysia in MA63.

On 11 Sept 1963, the Malayan gov’t told the Supreme Court that the Federation of Malaya will continue after 16 Sept 1963.

The Supreme Court then dismissed the suit by the Kelantan gov’t against the Malayan gov’t over the formation of Malaysia.

When it comes to Borneo, the Malaysian Constitution must mean the High Court of Borneo and the Federal Court reading the Federal Constitution together with MA63 and the other constitutional documents on Malaysia.

MA63 mentions Malaysian Constitution. It does not state the document must be written/codified.

Malaysia, as the Trustee under MA63, must attend the annual Council on Malaysia at the UN Secretary General’s Office to report on the progress made in steering North Borneo and Sarawak on self-determination and towards autonomy, self-government and independence.

There must be status update on North Borneo and Sarawak at the UN Secretary-General’s office, the UN Security Council and the UN General Assembly.

In fact, North Borneo and Sarawak should have observer status in the UN General Assembly.

Is the Mahathir Committee about a “new deal” which violates MA63? What matters is the INTENTION of the Founding Fathers in Borneo and the people.

Autonomy, the first step, will not come by the Federal gov’t declaring it and giving it on a silver platter, according to the consensus in the social media.

Mahathir’s Committee on MA63 is probably about what has been incorporated in the Federal Constitution and not about what hasn’t been incorporated.

The Committee will probably look at whether there has been compliance by the Federal gov’t on what has been incorporated in the Federal Constitution from MA63.

Thereafter, it would be a slippery slope to nowhere.

Before the 1MDB Thief Najib was kicked out last May, he offered to devolve greater administrative powers to North Borneo and Sarawak.

Briefly, he wanted to weed out duplication between Federal and state departments and agencies in Borneo. He said such Federal depts and agencies would either be handed over to the North Borneo and Sarawak gov’ts or be headed by locals.

In short, Najib did not seem to know whether he was coming or going on the devolution of greater administrative and ended up contradicting himself.

Putrajaya has no business determining and dictating the Agenda in North Borneo and Sarawak. They should just focus on preserving the Malaysian Common Market.

There are mutual benefits.

It will help North Borneo and Sarawak make up for the years of neglect, poverty, exploitation and under-development since 1963.

It will help preserve what little dignity Malaysia has left after betraying, for no rhyme or reason, the people of North Borneo, Sarawak and Singapore.

Footnote: North Borneo and Sarawak are good territories.

It’s unfortunate that they are in such pitiful states. The international community and the UN Security Council should step in and help address their plight in Malaysia.

In North Borneo, Mahathir was allegedly in cahoots with local tyrants, during his first premiership (1981 to 2003), to issue dubious personal documents to illegal immigrants to get their votes.

In Sarawak, local tyrants continue to steal NCR land from the Orang Asal. Fortunately, the EU has stepped in and made its stand clear on the matter and on logging in Penan country.

Still, when all is said and done, only the Federal gov’t can protect the people from local tyrants in North Borneo and Sarawak.

Hadi and PAS swear by ‘syariah-compliant lying’ i.e. taqiyya (deliberately lying) and kitman (lying by omission)

https://www.malaysia-today.net/2019/03/05/police-report-lodged-against-americk-rameli-clare-bank-negara-and-maybank/

Hadi and PAS swear by “syariah-compliant lying” i.e. taqiyya (deliberately lying) and kitman (lying by omission) “to advance the cause of Islam”, whatever it means.

The end justifies the means, as the communists would say.

Islam was created by the 3rd Caliph to provide an identity for Arabs. He compiled and codified the Quran in Arabic from Aramaic and other sources.

The Quran is mostly literature with a bit of history and religious rulings.

Allah and other stories in the Quran are secondary to the Arab identity. The Arab identity is about the here and now and reinforced by waging a tribalistic/feudal war against the kafir (non-believers).

Why should non-Arabs believe what Arabs believe?

There’s no reason for non-Arabs to accept the Islam of the 3rd Caliph. It’s not their identity.

Pakistan tried Arabisation and failed.

The Arab identity nullifies the Malay identity created under Article 160. The Arab and Malay identity are not synonymous. One does not mean the other. Islam is for Arabia and Arabs.

Arab identity means Islam, Quran and the Arabic language.

The Definition of Malay in Article 160, an aberration in law, states that only those Muslims, able to speak Malay, and born or domiciled in Singapore and Malaya by Merdeka, 31 Aug 1957, are Malays.

The descendants of these Malays are also Malays.

The Malays in Singapore and Malaya, under Article 160, are Tamil, Malayalee, Yemeni and Turk (all from India but only Muslims); and Bugis, Javanese, Minang, and Aceh (all from Indonesia but only Muslims).

Those who convert after Merdeka remain non-Malay.

Since 1965, under Article 152, Malays in Singapore can leave Islam and remain Malay. This is in line with the Constitution on freedom of conscience. The Definition of Malay in Article 152 is a successor to the Definition of Malay in Article 160.

In Malaya, under Article 160, Malays who leave Islam cease to be Malay. This is a violation of the Federal Constitution on freedom of conscience.

Wannabe Arabs among Malays in Malaya risk ceasing to be Malay, under Article 160, since they would no longer speak Malay and no longer practise “Malay” culture, customs and traditions, whatever they mean.

PH can win Rantau if Mahathir sets up Committee to study ratification of ICERD

Malay supremacy is a figment of the imagination.

As former Finance Minister Daim Zainuddin said, Malays will be selling Tom Yam forever.

Azmin should explain Daim’s statement.

Mahathir and Daim think alike. That’s why they focus on a limited and narrow vision.

Whenever Mahathir gets “frustrated”, he can’t resist pointing out that the Malays are lazy and shameless creatures. That’s just an excuse to facilitate the Malay capitalists continuing to plunder the public treasury through inflated gov’t contracts under the guise of bangsa, agama, negara and “derma”.

Malays take their cue in politics from non-Malays.

They take a position diametrically opposed to non-Malays.

Since non-Malays support PH, Malays support Umno and PAS.

Malays think that PH could not be good for them since non-Malays support it.

Mahathir came to power with non-Malay support and also Malay Gen Y votes.

Also, he has so far refused to recognise UEC despite promising to do so.

If he continues at this rate, non-Malay support will slip away from Bersatu, PKR and Amanah. These three parties will be demolished by Umno and PAS in Rantau.

In PH, only DAP will eventually be left standing.

Indians, Chinese, Orang Asal, Sabah and Sarawak will not vote for Umno and PAS.

That means Umno and PAS will forever be in the Opposition if the voters don’t abandon PH.

MIC and MCA, being Umno stooges, are dead horses.

PH can win Rantau if Mahathir announces the Federal gov’t will set up a Committee to study ratification of ICERD.

That will secure 100 per cent support from non-Malays and the Malay Gen Y.

Except for the Gen Y, Malays will never support PH.

If Mahathir wants to force Malays to support Bersatu, he has to take a leaf from the ISA era, and deregister Umno and PAS.

PAS is unlawful since it took money stolen from 1MDB.

Umno was unlawful on 19 April 2018 when it failed to hold party elections as per its Constitution.

Also, it received money stolen from 1MDB.

Umno president Najib himself stole the money.

Mahathir cannot depend on frogs to increase Bersatu’s numbers. These frogs will lose in GE15 if Umno and PAS are not deregistered.

Malays don’t care about the 1MDB Scandal and corruption. They think it’s not their money. Besides, they think that Najib shared the loot with them.

They believe that, sooner or later, they will also get a turn at plundering the public treasury through inflated gov’t contracts which they can sell to the MCA Chinaman for quick money.

As Mahathir has pointed out, Malays are shameless creatures, besides being lazy. They will refuse to commit hara kiri, as in Japan, after bringing shame to the bangsa, agama, negara and “derma”. The latest is Hadi degenerating into taqiyya (deliberately lying) and kitman (lying by omission) after paying The Sarawak Report RM1.4m to settle a case out of court.

No one can escape the karmic forces since we are making them.

Having said that, karmic forces will exhaust themselves sooner or later.

The state of rotten politics in Malaya will continue as long as the Federal gov’t is not bankrupt.

When the Federal gov’t goes bankrupt, the international community has to come in, and the rotten politics have to end.

Enter the IMF, World Bank, the UN Secretary General’s Office, the UN Security Council, other UN bodies, India, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, UK, US, and Canada.

Arab identity and Malay identity cannot co-exist except in Singapore

https://www.freemalaysiatoday.com/category/highlight/2019/03/03/indonesias-largest-islamic-group-says-non-muslims-shouldnt-be-called-kafir/

The Arab identity and literature etc in the Quran must be viewed separately by the rest of the world.

In Arabia, they are one and the same.

There will be endless trouble in Malaya as long as so-called Malays harp on Islam, for no rhyme or reason, and harbour strong sense of proprietorship.

Islam was created by the 3rd Caliph to give an identity to Arabs. He compiled and codified the Quran in Arabic from Aramaic and sources in other languages.

There’s no reason for non-Arabs to be Muslim as the identity is about being Arab.

The Arab identity has been about believers degenerating into tribalism and feudalism and going to war against non-believers (kafir).

In fact, Islam was supposed to get Arabs away from tribalism and feudalism.

Pakistan, created in 1947 in northwest India by British colonialists, tried Arabisation and failed.

The Arab identity and the Definition of Malay in Article 160 are contradictions.

The Definition of Malay in Article 160, an aberration in law, was created to give an identity to Muslims in Singapore and Malaya who were in these territories, either by birth or domicile, before Merdeka i.e. 31 Aug 1957.

Their descendants are also Malay.

Malays in Malaya are mostly Tamil, Malayalee, Yemeni and Turk (four groups of Muslims from India); and mostly Bugis, Javanese, Minang and Acheh (four groups of Muslims from Indonesia).

Malay was created by Indians as the lingua franca for the Archipelago.

Those who convert in Singapore and Malaya after Merdeka remain non-Malay.

Since 1965, under Article 152, Malays in Singapore can leave Islam and still remain Malay.

In Malaya, under Article 160, Malays who leave Islam cease to be Malay.

By the same token, wannabe Arabs in Singapore and Malaya cease to be Malay as they would no longer be speaking Malay, or practising “Malay” culture, customs and traditions.

Islam was created by the 3rd Caliph to give an identity to Arabs

https://www.malaysiakini.com/news/466349

The Malaysia Agreement 1963 (MA63) and the constitutional documents on Malaysia, on the one hand, and decentralisation are separate issues.

Decentralisation is mainly about Malaya. Don’t talk about decentralisation unless local gov’t elections are brought back and all taxes collected at the local gov’t level only.

In a Federation, political power is shared at the Federal, state and local levels. All politics are about restructuring the distribution of political power and restructuring the distribution of revenue and resources.

Gov’t by its very nature is evil. So, it must be as small and as poor as possible.

Only Federal gov’t can rein in local tyrants, especially in North Borneo and Sarawak.

Witness Bersatu going to the two Borneo territories. Of course, there are also other reasons why Bersatu wants to be in Borneo, like for example the lack of Malay support — except for the Gen Y — for the Pakatan Harapan (PH) gov’t.

Article 160 of the Federal Constitution defines Federation as that established by the Federation of Malaya Agreement 1948, and reinforced by the Federation of Malaya Independence Act 1957.

There’s a print mistake in the above in the Federal Constitution. 1957 should read as 1948.

The North Borneo and Sarawak state secretaries should write to the Chief Secretary to inform that both territories are withdrawing from all Federal Cabinet posts except Defence, Internal Security, and Foreign Affairs; and a Joint Parliamentary and Cabinet Committee on the Malaysian Common Market.

Before he was thrown out on May 9 last year in GE14, Najib offered to devolve greater administrative powers to the North Borneo and Sarawak gov’ts. He said federal depts in Borneo which duplicated state depts would either be removed or placed under the charge of locals. Najib’s offer is not what MA63, and the other constitutional documents on Malaysia, are all about.

Putrajaya should also report every year to the meeting of the Council on Malaysia at the UN Secretary General’s Office on the progress made in steering North Borneo and Sarawak on self-determination viz. autonomy, self-gov’t and independence.

Putrajaya has not attended the meetings of the Council on Malaysia since Singapore became independent in 1965.

As in Singapore’s case, the Malaysian Parliament can pass independence Acts for North Borneo and Sarawak.

Sabah, to digress a little, is the Sulu name for the southern EssZone (Eastern Sabah Security Zone). Manila is also claiming northern EssZone on the grounds that Brunei handed over the toll collection in the area to the Sulu sultan. Brunei denies this.

President Macapagal explained in 1962 that the Sabah claim would not have arisen if the British had given independence to North Borneo before they left. As a result, the defunct Sulu sultanate handed over “sovereignty” over EssZone to the Republic of the Philippines.

Coming back to decentralisation, it was Mahathir who did away with the Federation concept and the Doctrine of Separation of Powers and placed all political power in the person of the Prime Minister in particular — that’s how the 1MDB Scandal happened — and the Prime Minister’s Office and Prime Minister’s Department in general.

The PM’s Dept is a hyper Ministry.

All Ministers are just Menteri Jalan Jalan.

The GLCs, GLICs and gov’t owned firms, statutory bodies and gov’t depts have all been used to turn Malaysia into a “glamourous communist state”.

The state has enormous powers in Malaysia and punches above its weight in international affairs. This is like the case with North Korea.

The judiciary, packed with 90 per cent Malays, has been compromised to the dictates of the state — as in communist countries — and Parliament reduced to a rubber stamp.

The civil service, police and armed forces are 90 per cent Malay because of Mahathir.

The rule of law is the basis of the Constitution. The rule of law means the letter of the law, and the spirit, with greater emphasis on the latter.

Article 3 is a standalone clause, an aberration in law in the Federal Constitution. Islam is not about rule of law. It does not recognise democracy, human rights, and the universality and commonality of citizenship.

There are more important things to worry about in life than “insults” to Islam.

There will be endless trouble in this country as long as so-called Malays harp on Islam, for no rhyme or reason, and harbour strong sense of proprietorship.

Islam was created by the 3rd Caliph to give an identity to Arabs. He compiled and codified the Quran in Arabic from Aramaic and sources in other languages.

The Arab identity is about believers degenerating into tribalism and feudalism and going to war against non-believers (kafir).

In fact, Islam was also about getting away from tribalism and feudalism.

There’s no reason for non-Arabs to be Muslim as the identity is about being Arab.

The Arab identity and literature must be viewed separately by the rest of the world.

In Arabia, they are one and the same.

According to Zakir Naik, everything was created by God. In fact, we know from science that the universe does not need a Creator. Everything happened by chain reaction. Science doesn’t tell us what existed before chain reaction.

We know from science that the universe is an illusion. It does not exist although it appears to exist physically.

Zakir Naik added that everything is God in Hinduism.

Hindus don’t believe in God as in the religions. Those who think of God will become hallucinational. In their hallucination, they become delusional.

Hindus believe that a great spirit permeates everything.

Hindus are seekers guided by knowers (Gurus).

Hinduism is not a religion, it’s not a belief system, it has no Founder and there’s no conversion.

Buddhism, like Hinduism, speaks of no God. It says the goal of human beings must be to attain eternal bliss. It’s the same in Hinduism.

The Holy Bible, the Word of God, is not about believers, seekers or knowers.

It’s about the spiritual nature of truth.

Spiritual does not mean spiritualism (seeking).

Spiritual does not mean religion or belief system.

God does not mean God. Word does not mean God.

Word means the spiritual nature of truth.

Truth is in nothingness. We come from nothingness, we return to nothingness.

The truth has a spiritual nature.

Jesus, in touching on the spiritual nature of truth, said, “love those who hate you, pray for those who curse you, do good to those who wish you harm, and the kingdom of heaven will be yours”.

By kingdom of heaven, Jesus meant eternal bliss, the return to nothingness.

Church is a gathering in memory of Jesus.

Jesus said, “where two or more are gathered in my name, I will be there among them”.

The Definition of Malay in Article 160 was created to give an identity to Muslims in Singapore and Malaya who were in these territories, either by birth or domicile, before Merdeka i.e. 31 Aug 1957.

Their descendants are also Malay.

The Definition is an aberration in law. It should not be in the Constitution. The Constitution is colour blind.

Wannabe Arabs among Malays cease to be Malays under Article 160. Malays who leave Islam in Malaya also cease to be Malay. Malays in Singapore can leave Islam under Article 152 and still remain Malay.

It’s highly unlikely that serious reforms can be carried out in Malaysia unless the Federal gov’t goes bankrupt and rotten politics comes to an end.

The UN Secretary General’s Office, the UN Security Council, the other UN bodies, IMF, World Bank, and international community has to come in. India, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, the US, Canada and UK are the key nations in carrying out reforms in Malaysia.

It’s highly unlikely that Mahathir, or the PH gov’t under any other Malay Prime Minister or a BN gov’t in future under a Malay Prime Minister, would preside over decentralisation.

Only a non-Malay Prime Minister would work on decentralisation.

Mahathir is a pragmatist with a limited vision.

He wants to put in place a political system which will ensure, for the next 40 years, that a small group of Malay capitalists can accumulate capital to try and match the Chinese with capital.

These capitalists allegedly created May 13 to seize power and kill the idea of a strong Opposition in Parliament.

DAP is not against Mahathir helping Malay capitalists as long as they stay out of politics.

After 1969, we had to wait until 2008 to have a strong Opposition in Parliament.

After 2019, it will take another 40 years for a strong Opposition to emerge in Parliament.

Mahathir is doing what Razak did in 1969 except there’s no May 13.

No one can pull off the same trick twice. Hence, no May 13.

It does not matter who rules in Putrajaya.

What matters is a strong Opposition in Parliament i.e. no two thirds majority for the ruling party. A strong Opposition can unearth all the scandals in gov’t.

Mahathir is against strong Malay parties making up the Opposition.

When the ISA was in force, the focus was on killing Malay Opposition parties and weakening the Opposition in Parliament.

Mahathir wants Malay lawmakers in gov’t by hook or crook. It’s not just about Bersatu.

At the same time, he wants to eliminate Hadi and PAS. He blames PAS for causing Malay disunity. The RM90m and RM200m probes will be used to force PAS to get rid of Hadi. The party will split again.

Is it any wonder that Hadi and PAS ran to see Mahathir recently, cringing, crawling and grovelling? Their so-called support for Mahathir in Parliament and for him to complete a full term, is just to cover their shame.

Mahathir cannot hang around after mid-2020. The longer he stays in office, the more political damage he will do, not only to the Opposition but Sabah and Sarawak.

Those who defect to Bersatu in Malaya will not win GE15. The Malays will not vote for them. Except for the Gen Y, Malays will not vote for PH.

The Opposition cannot be trusted. They are potential frogs. It’s better for the people to vote for at least some independent lawmakers. This is an idea whose time has come.

With Putrajaya under PH regaining the two-thirds majority in Parliament, the people can write off Opposition lawmakers.

The NGOs, the social media, and the court of public opinion should fill the vacuum left behind by the crumbling Opposition.

The mainstream media is dead.

Not even one alternative media is breaking even.

So, they have become highly vulnerable.

To recap . . .

The brightest and best must lead the way for All.

It’s no longer possible for Umno and PAS to brainwash Malays into racism, tribalism and feudalism to seize political power. The Malay Gen Y have fled from Umno and PAS because these parties denied them party posts and did not allow them to contest in the general elections. The results can be seen in GE14.

It’s a numbers game.

Except for Gen Y, Malays will not vote for PH no matter how much the gov’t favours them.

Except for Gen Y, PH should forget about Malay voters.

Instead, it should go after the votes of the Orang Asal, Muslim and Others in Borneo.

Indians, Chinese, and Orang Asal will not support Umno and PAS.

Umno and PAS cannot come to power without the support of Indians, Chinese and Orang Asal.

The Umno candidate in Semenyih will defect to Bersatu. Frogs will be frogs.

Again, all Umno lawmakers in Malaya who defect to Bersatu will lose in GE15 unless Umno and PAS are deregistered.

It’s not enough to deregister Umno.

If PAS is not deregistered, Malays will support it when Umno is deregistered.
