A snake in DAP

FMT - Semua salah guna kuasa akan disiasat, kata Kit Siang (extracts):

'ni semua ta'apa, hanya sap sap suoi saje - tun sekarang pihak kami 

PETALING JAYA: Veteran DAP Lim Kit Siang memberi jaminan sebarang salah guna kuasa malah persepsi kelakuan itu – dulu dan sekarang – akan disiasat.

Kit Siang memberitahu sesi pertemuan bersama anak muda di Perpustakaan Komuniti Petaling Jaya malam tadi bahawa beliau sentiasa berpegang kepada pendirian itu.

Beliau menjawab soalan sama ada beliau akan menyiasat dakwaan salah laku yang dilemparkan terhadap Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad oleh pembangkang sekiranya Pakatan Harapan diberie kuasa, terutamanya sekarang apabila Dr Mahathir adalah sekutu dalam gabungan itu.

Dr Mahathir duduk bersebelahan Lim.

Lim bagaimanapun berkata masa depan lebih penting daripada peristiwa dahulu.

Lim Kit Siang's bahasa must be worse than mine, which is already mucho bad, wakakaka.

I wonder how he define 'semua' and 'masa depan'???

After saying ALL who misused their powers would be investigated he said in the same breath that 'bagaimanapun berkata masa depan lebih penting daripada peristiwa dahulu' (however, he said the future is more important than past events), implying peristiwa dahulu won't be investigated.

'Semua' means ALL, no exception and that includes his current buddy (ex-foe) Mahathir. But alas, LKS in recent times seems to have lost his moral marbles.

Don't give us your bullshit that 'bagaimanapun berkata masa depan lebih penting daripada peristiwa dahulu' in order to exclude Mahathir (who at that time was sitting beside him).

If Lim Kit Siang meant what he said, namely, masa depan lebih penting daripada peristiwa dahulu, which means he would be cherry-picking for his own political convenience and own questionable interests, he is willing to, in other words, 'close one eye' for his political ally.

Wouldn't that make him the same as MCA and Gerakan, the people he frequently condemned? What a f**king hypocrtite.

If Lim Kit Siang was bullshitting Mahathir in his statement, namely, masa depan lebih penting daripada peristiwa dahulu, it showed his cowardice even in his promise/policy and a very Machiavellian lack of integrity.

By the by, 'masa depan' would f**king mean he has also excluded Najib.

Who then will he be gunning for, 'Moody'(?) or 'Zahid'(?) or KJ(?) or Mukhriz(?) or 'Syed Saddiq'? Sorry, Cina dan Hindu ta'laku lah.

LKS has for umpteen years been crying out against Forex, BMF, Ops Lalang, Maminco, Perwaja, 929 & 617 Declarations by Mahathir, etc. But now, he is singing 'Pujaan Ku'. 

Can you ever believe or trust such a snake?

Always right, as in Ops Lalang

MM Online - Unapologetic Dr M says would do Ops Lalang all over again:

f**k you lot, I'll never apologise when I'm always right  

Former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad said he would repeat his actions in the notorious Ops Lalang security crackdown of 1987 under the same circumstances today.

Speaking at a town hall session with youths here tonight alongside DAP parliamentary leader Lim Kit Siang, one of those detained using the Internal Security Act (ISA) in the dragnet, Dr Mahathir also insisted that his actions had not been an “abuse of power”. [...]

I can confirm I was happy to be arrested and imprisoned under Ops Lalang - Tun Mahathir was absolutely correct to detained me and the rest of the opposition mongrels

After Ops Lalang, the ISA gained a reputation for being a “white terror”, as the incident demonstrated the ease with which the colonial era security law could be applied on political dissidents.

Tonight, Dr Mahathir was also adamant that the ISA had not been used solely against political dissent.

“They (previous governments) did not abuse their power. Not all of ISA arrests were politically motivated,” he said.

The law was eventually repealed in 2012 by Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak.

Continuing to defend himself on the ISA, Dr Mahathir also insisted that he made fewer arrests using the law than his predecessors.

He pointed out that he detained 1,200 using the ISA over his 22-year administration, versus more than 2,000 by the three prime ministers before him.

Dr Mahathir did not point out, however, the fact that the communist threat only ended in 1989 with the dissolution of the Malayan Communist Party; the ISA had been among laws enacted to combat the menace.

“Tunku Abdul Rahman, Tun Abdul Razak, and Tun Hussein Onn all arrested more people under the ISA, yet I am the one who gets [criticised,]” he said.

The first 3 PMs were combating the threat of armed insurgency which was what the ISA was meant for, and not in the way Mahathir was using it in Ops Lalang.

His DNA is such he will NEVER EVER apologise. As he has said, he will willingly do Ops Lalang again, which presumably means he will willingly do Memali, Forex, Maminco, Perwaja etc again as he is NOT at all apologetic for his sins. He may even jail Anwar again, and waste more money on his Proton, at taxpayers' expense.

If he gets into Putrajaya with Harapan, many have said he can't do much as Pribumi has only about 50 seats (assuming he wins in all his Pribumi seats in GE-14).

What he will do may be to merge his Pribumi with remnants of his UMNO Baru and with at least 112 seats combined in parliament, he may likely f**k Pakatan out if the Harapan people don't like.

After all he is always right.

Fish head curry news too "spicy"

Star Online - What the fish! Diner cries foul after being charged RM600 for fish head curry (extracts):

still looks alive with grudges, wakakaka 

A dinner for two families at a famous restaurant in Kuala Lumpur last weekend ended on a shocking note when the guests were presented with a massive bill for fish head curry.

According to a receipt posted on social media by one of the diners on Monday (Nov 20), the four bowls of fish head curry he ordered came up to RM600.

The sum translates to RM150 a bowl and excludes the cost of the other dishes and beverages ordered, which took the grand total to almost RM1,000.

While the fish head curry was expensive, I think the news headlines have been too sensational. Both Star and FMT have the same headlines, which at first glance implied RM600 per fish head, whilst teh actual truth is the cost was for FOUR bowls, and not one as I had initially thought.

Yes, RM150 would still be reasonably stiff but couldn't the headlines be:

Diner cries foul after being charged RM150 for fish head curry.

But I suppose the headlines then won't be sensational enough.

that's how I like mine, where the fish is very dead (wakakaka) and with lots of lady's fingers (okra) 
and give me some 'black' (caramelised) sauce (aw tauyu) to go with the dish and steamed rice

Correct Bahasa

FMT - The language police is going to kill the use of Malay (extracts):

On November 14, Abdul Adzis Abas, the Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaska (DBP) director-general, confirmed that the government had empowered the DBP to act against the improper use of Malay.

Abdul Adzis claimed that anyone who used Malay incorrectly, including online advertisers, would be fined up to RM1,000, after the amendments to the National Language Act 1963 and Education Act 1996, have been passed in Parliament.

He said the objective of the enforcement was to educate the public in the correct usage of Malay, and discourage the usage of “broken” Malay in print and on the Internet so as to prevent the language from becoming “contaminated”.

If there is one way that is guaranteed to dampen one’s enthusiasm for learning a language, it must be the fining of the speakers, or writer, for the incorrect use of it.

What about local dialects? What happens to new learners of the language? What about the bastardisation of Malay, with the glib use of English to compose new words in Malay, like interaksi, komunikasi, bisnes, pakir and kendil for interaction, communication, business, parking, and candle?

Who will enforce the fines for the improper use of Malay? If language enforcement were to take place, anyone with status or the right “kabel” will escape a fine. [...]

We have had the moral police, the seditious police and the social media police terrorising our lives. Do we need the language police to make us refuse to speak the language because we do not want to incur fines for incorrect usage?

don't bother to dress yup, we want to inspect the lost aurat of her tits 

If Home Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi, wants Malaysians to speak proper Malay, he could start with Umno because Umno is the English acronym for United Malays National Organisation. Why not use the Malay acronym for Umno instead?

its acronym can be obscene, wakakaka

1. Gunakan Bahasa Malaysia yang baik,

2. Gunakan Bahasa Malaysia dengan baik.

Which is correct, No 1 or No 2?

PAS is Zero in Sabah so STFU

MM Online - Don’t question Islam’s status as Sabah’s official religion, PAS warns:

Sabah PAS has cautioned the public today against questioning the status of Islam as the official religion of the state, stating the issue is a “sensitive” one.

The chapter of the Islamist party said the religion’s status is enshrined in Article 5(A) of the state constitution.

“Sabah PAS feels that the issue of religion is final. Let there be no party who bring back such matter,” the chapter’s commissioner Mohd Aminuddin Aling said in a statement.

“If the issue of official religion continues to be a political capital, Sabah PAS is fully confident that it will cause conflicts and dispute.”

The usual PAS' threat and attempt to silence a matter not of their liking by labelling it as 'sensitive'.

Sedikit sedikit 'sensitive', 'don't test our patience' etc etc etc.

Recall Hadi Awang's threat of another 'May 13' if the Penang government brought about local council elections?

That's the mentality of an Islamic party which hasn't even come into federal powers yet.

Continuing with the MM Online article:

Sabah did not have an official religion in line with what was agreed to in the Malaysian Agreement 1963 (MA63).

It was only in 1976 when the now defunct United Sabah National Organisation’s government had changed the situation by amending the Sabah State Constitution by including a new article — Article 5A — which provided that Islam was the official religion of the state.

Last week, Dewan Rakyat speaker Tan Sri Pandikar Amin Mulia challenged those claiming to champion the rights of Sabah to prove their sincerity, among others by amending the Article 5A.

On Saturday, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Razak said the federal government has no intention and right to take anything that rightfully belongs to Sabah and its people as provided for in the MA63.

MA63 said Sabah did NOT have an official religion. If PM Najib said Putrajaya has no intention and right to take anything that rightfully belongs to Sabah and its people as provided for in the MA63, then Sabah can now, if the state wishes, revert to NOT having an official religion. To wit, the state can officially remove/erase Article 5A from its state constitution.

Who the f**k is PAS to say otherwise or to merajuk and threaten against removal of Article 5A?

For a start, PAS is unelected in Sabah and thus has no representative for that state, a clear indication Sabahans do not want it. Therefore, it lacks the credentials to speak on anything for the people of the state.

Secondly, the constitution was amended to include Article 5A (which makes Islam the state official religion) by the state's 3rd CM, Mustapha Harun, who hated the Catholics and had fantasy of becoming the Caliph of a Mindanao-Sabah caliphate.

Mustapha, much to then-KL's political anguish, funded and armed the Muslim separatists of Philippines, just as the Muslim insurgents of Southern Thailand were likewise by their kinfolks in Northern Malaya-Malaysia.

He rid Sabah of many Catholic priests, antagonising the state's Catholics, but he didn't give a shit. He was one bad warlord. But all his Muslim-ness there were more than a few nasty salacious stories of him less than complimentary to his so-called Islamic leadership, wakakaka.

In those days, Malaya-Malaysia had a bad name in Thai and Filipino circles, as a nasty nation which promoted insurgencies in neighbouring nations.

When Mustapha harboured deep desires to secede Sabah from Malaysia, he over-lived his usefulness to KL and was abandoned to the wolves, thank god for every peace-loving Malaysians.

But back to the present, that Article 5A was arbitrarily done and should now be removed to restore Sabah's status to MA63.

PAS can go f**k spiders.

Let's blame all Malaysian landslides on Guan Eng

MM Online - Residents in landslide shock (extracts):

PETALING JAYA, Nov 20 — Residents had a scare during a torrential downpour when a landslide struck Bukit Bandaraya in Bangsar on Saturday.

Bukit Bandaraya Residents Association adviser Datuk M. Ali told Malay Mail several residents were living in fear after the landslide incident.

He said debris along Jalan Medang Tanduk has been removed, but the exposed hillside is still a cause for concern.

“I visited the site and saw officers from the city council examining the area, but there is still exposed soil and trees on the hill which could collapse any time,” he said.

Ali said residents have not been told to evacuate their homes by the authorities, who have also remained silent of possible safety precautions that should be taken.

“The authorities have not advised those living nearby on any proactive steps to be taken, nor have they mentioned any possible cause for the landslide,” he said.

There can be no denying that the Penang government has been responsible. Let us sue CM Lim Guan Eng for unwarranted hill slope cutting.


don't forget to pray to 'Tokong' 

Why Malaysian religious authorities won't debate

From Malaysia-Today's copy of FMT's Debate With Liberals, Islamic Bodies Told (relevant extracts):

An academic has urged religious authorities to consider debating Muslim speakers they disagree with instead of clamping down on them.

Ahmad Fauzi Abdul Hamid, a political science professor at Universiti Sains Malaysia, told FMT he believed it was always better to engage with people one disagreed with than to resort to legal action.

“What is wrong in engaging with these so-called liberal Muslims?” he said. “A lot of the forums they speak at are open anyway. Authorities can send their own scholars who are able to converse in the English language and engage actively in the question and answer session and debate them there and then.

“That’s better than listening through the grapevine and placing restrictions before you even hear them out.”

He said resorting to restrictions would not only discredit those who put the controls in place but would also dishonour Islam.

“You are portraying Islam as a religion that obstructs or avoids discussions when the truth is that it is not such a religion.

“Prophet Muhammad engaged with Christians in a very famous dialogue. Although the Muslims and Christians could not come to an agreement about Jesus, the Prophet still accorded them respect and even allowed them to pray in his mosque.

“We’re speaking there about people of different religions. Here, we’re talking about views which come from within Islam. And these Muslims, no matter how liberal you think they are, have their own references and sources from reputable scholars, even if those scholars come from the West.”


Last August, Indonesian scholar Mun’im Sirry gave a lecture at the club and the Department of Islamic Development (Jakim) subsequently labelled him as a deviated Muslim.

Mun’im Sirry

A month later, officers from the Federal Territory Islamic Department (Jawi) arrested Turkish author Mustafa Akyol following his speech on apostasy at a forum organised by IRF and G25.

Mustafa Akyol

Jawi said Akyol had violated an offence under the Syariah Criminal Offences (Federal Territories) Act, which requires speakers on Islamic themes to have officially recognised credentials. Before the Akyol incident, it was generally thought that the rule applied only to speeches in mosques and suraus.

Fauzi said it was important to ask whether the authorities were being fair in applying the rule on credentials.

“You may disagree with Akyol, but if you want to apply the law of credentials, then apply it on the preacher Zakir Naik as well.

“Has Naik applied for credentials? Has anyone questioned whether he has credentials or not? Not only do we not question that, we even grant him permanent residence.

“Don’t be selective just because we have a prejudged view of some people. If you want to apply a law, apply it fair and square, including on people who are invited by government bodies.”

He said Islam in Malaysia was in danger of becoming Islamism if the authorities persisted in using legal means to suppress views departing from their own.

“It can become an Islam that you adhere to because you’re being watched by the legal apparatus, not out of your conscience or conscious decision.

“Why isn’t the spirit of Islam being applied instead of using an arbitrary yardstick to take action on people we may not like. This doesn’t mean that I agree with Akyol, but he has the right to say what he says and I can debate with him if I want to.”

He also questioned whether Malaysian Muslims expected to be treated unfairly in countries like Iran, where the Sunni expression of Islam might be considered deviant.

There are several reasons why it's impossible for JAWI or JAKIM to debate with Muslim speakers they disagree with, namely:

(a) JA-organisations' objective is not about engaging in intellectual-philosophical research or enlightenment or further knowledge of Islam but about über control, total domination and secured obedience of the Muslim community for their own interests and career-longevity, so why should-would they want to debate,

(b) on top of (a) above, shit, they might lose lah - malu man!

(c) they lack the intellectual capacity to do so,

(d) they prefer brutish bullying tactics and draconian strategy, eg. as in the cases of Nik Raina, Kassim Ahmad and the customers at Zouk Nightclub,

(e) or more conveniently label people they don't like or dare to debate as deviant or liberal, 

(f) they don't have the balls nor brains to engage anyone in debate on Islam.

etc etc etc.

lelong lelong, bola2 spare untuk yang ta'ada

JAWI - bullying of women and old man

FMT - Jawi siasat Siti Kasim hina Islam:

Tindakan yang diambil terhadap individu yang mengeluarkan kenyataan atau melakukan perbuatan menghina serta mengelirukan mengenai Islam tidak terhad kepada perundangan sahaja, kata Menteri di Jabatan Perdana Menteri, Datuk Seri Jamil Khir Baharom.

Sebaliknya, kata beliau, ada tindakan lain diambil institusi agama Islam seperti mengikuti kelas agama ...

“Dalam konteks Siti Kasim, pihak Jabatan Agama Islam Wilayah Persekutuan (Jawi) telahpun ambil tindakan.

“Kertas siasatan telah dibuka dan pihak berkenaan telah dipanggil,” katanya sewaktu menjadi ahli panel bagi kluster agama di Konvensyen Pemerkasaan Agenda Ummah 3.0 hari ini.

Beliau menjawab soalan peserta berhubung tindakan diambil kerajaan terhadap individu seperti Siti Kasim atau nama sebenarnya, Siti Zabedah Kasim yang dilaporkan kerap mengeluarkan kenyataan menghina dan mengelirukan mengenai Islam.

Hardly surprising as JAWI has been notorious for bullying/persecuting women like Nik Raina, a store manager with Borders, for no-offence unless the legislation was made retrospective, which BTW it was NOT - in other words, JAWI bullied, harassed and intimidated Nik Raina without cause at all, such was its unlawful persecution and prosecution of a young innocent lassie.

Nik Raina

innocent but ruthlessly persecuted and prosecuted by JAWI
, who wanted to show 'siapa raja' instead of following the law, which proved JAWI has been lawless

JAWI was notorious also for illegal harassment of a 80+ year old octogenarian, Kassim Ahmad, even unto crossing illegally into Kedah (not its Islamic jurisdictional domain) to arrest the old man, illegally.

f**k off JAWI and JAKIM

JAWI was a shameful bunch of lustful men who bullied, ogled and abused young ladies at the Zouk Club in 2005 where it was reported they even threatened non-Muslims and assaulted & severely beat up members of the Club's staff.

The BBC reported:

New allegations have surfaced about misconduct by Malaysia's religious police during a raid on a top Kuala Lumpur nightclub last month.

More than 100 plainclothes officers from the Federal Territories Islamic Department (JAWI) detained young Muslims at the Zouk nightclub.

Female detainees complained of sexual harassment by officers and the incident has led to a heated debate about the department's future.

Eyewitnesses have now told the BBC that officers assaulted and severely beat members of the club's staff.

The sources also said that non-Muslim patrons, including tourists, who were outside the officers' jurisdiction, also reported being threatened with violence.

"Up to 150 of them came in," one witness said. "They didn't identify themselves, they didn't show any ID cards. They just forced their way in and started pushing people around."

In the days after the raid it emerged that dozens of young women were held for up to 10 hours without access to a toilet, long after male detainees had been released.

A number of women said religious officers ordered them to pose in their nightclub outfits while others were asked lewd questions about their genitalia.

That's JAWI, a notorious bunch of women-bullying and old man-bullying lustful thugs, with salaries paid by probably tax revenue derived from non-Muslims.

Minister Jamil Khir must proved that Siti Kasim had insulted the sacrosanct religion of Islam per se which is not the same as telling off mortal beings such as JAWI officers, ulamaks, other Muslims and even the minister himself.

Don't use the latter as an excuse that 'they are Islam' itself and thus she was insulting Islam when she probably told them to f**k off.

We do not want another JAWI grandfather story a la its lie against Nik Raina again.

Malicious unscrupulous evil 'fake news'

FMT - Probe malicious viral messages of durians turned back from China (extracts):

China has yet to allow Malaysia to import whole durians into the country, it was clarified today.

China, however, gave special permission for the import of 3.8 tonnes of durians, with their shells, for use during the Malaysian Durian Festival 2017 held in Nanning from Nov 3-5.

This was stated in a statement issued by Robin Wong, the durian festival’s special coordinator, and festival organiser Dominic Su.

In a statement, they said it was therefore untrue that 20 containers of Musang King durians sent to China were rejected and sent back to Malaysia due to alleged high insecticide content.

They said such messages, spread through social media, were totally “unjustifiable, unsupported, unwarranted and inaccurate”.

“We don’t know the intention of this unwarranted claim.

“But as the organisers of the durian festival, we feel compelled to clarify what we know to stop the further spread of these unjustifiable false claims.

“These may negatively affect the proper marketing of our quality agriculture produce, including durians.

“We should all be responsible for stopping any efforts to negatively affect the good progress that the durian festival has brought.

“We believe that the festival is a stepping stone towards helping to increase our agricultural exports to China, which is beneficial to our economy and country.”

This has been a case of 'fake news' which could be terribly harmful to the nation's agricultural export, implying Malaysia's fruits and other agricultural products have been dosed with high insecticide content.

Another 'fake news' has been a photo of a Chinese traffic jam posited as that in Germany where German drivers simultaneously abandoned their cars on the highways as a sign of protest against rising petrol prices.

Was this to egg on local Malaysian drivers to do likewise against the recent increase in petrol prices.

I had previously posted 'fake news' of fresh seafood (kembong and kerang) prices gone astronomical under GST when fresh seafood are/were NOT subjected to GST.

Some recent ridiculous news was, as one example showed:

Once known as the “poor man’s fish”, the possibility that ikan kembung might become a price-controlled item is perhaps a better economic indicator for ordinary Malaysians instead of growth figures issued by the government.

The price of the humble fish in the mackerel family has been rising since the introduction of the goods and services tax (GST) in 2015.\

The poor GST has been innocently blamed for the rise in a non-GST-ed item, namely fresh food including fresh fish.

The example has been what 'fake news' is, published sometime ago presumably to invoke angry/adverse feelings against, in the above stated case, an innocent GST.

A pathetic unscrupulous pariah example but pretty effective amongst kampung readers.

Another one - Siti Zahara who is anaemic said she often buys cockles when the dizziness gets the best of her but has also cut down on that of late.

"The doctor advised me to eat cockles or liver (as an iron supplement) because of my anaemic condition."

Before GST, cockles cost about RM4 per kilo. Now it’s about RM10. So, I buy half a kilo. You can imagine how little that is when cooked.”

The 'fake news' aimed to show that with GST, price of kerang had leapt from RM4 to a humongous RM10.

By the by, I wonder whether there was really an anaemic 'Siti Zahara'?

Well, I have to say there is a '6' somewhere there in the price (a la 6% GST?), but the '6' in that piece of 'fake news' was the difference between a so-called pre-GST-priced kerang at RM4 to a post-GST-priced kerang at RM10.

Who cares if, again, there is no GST on cockles, because such 'fake news' would irate the readers.

Even if there was/is (but to reiterate, there is no GST on kerang), 6% of RM4 only amounts to a round figure of 25 sen.

So could that reporter explain her Before GST, cockles cost about RM4 per kilo. Now it’s about RM10.

But the point has been how 'fake news' (deliberately?) exaggerated the impact of GST even on a non-GST-ed item, to wit, from RM4 to a staggering RM10. The aim has been obvious, thanks Siti Zahara.

The 'fake news' could only be described as highly mischievous or even evil. Very unscrupulous lah!

UEC - the Mahathir Mentality

I used to play softball at school, rather badly, wakakaka. The game is somewhat similar to baseball but with several minor differences such field size, ball, pitching area, ball-delivery style, etc. But what I am about to write is unimportant to which game we refer to.

In both softball and baseball the dreaded sentence is '3 strikes and you're out' where the 3 strikes actually means strike-outs, or the inability or failure to hit a pitched ball.

That phrase is also used in crimes, where the three-strikes law significantly increases the prison sentences of persons convicted of a felony who have been previously convicted of two or more violent crimes or serious felonies, and limits the ability of these offenders to receive a punishment other than a life sentence.

But in Najib's case I want to use that phrase in the opposite way, namely, 3 strikes and you're IN, wakakaka.

GE-14 is coming so Ah Jib Gor has been campaigning heavily, both for BN and MCA-Gerakan, especially for the 2 Chinese-dominant parties. In the latter campaign case he has been Bapak Eid al-Fitr (wakakaka) to the Chinese Malaysians. The follwung have been what he has thus far done:

Strike 1 - Najib declared Han Chiang a university college,

Strike 2 - He made some 'noise' about Lil Napoleons opposing his move to build 10 new SRKJ(C) but assured the Chinese audience he won't allow those officials to stop his intention, saying he will definitely fund the new schools.

All he needs now is a Strike 3 with the hope he gets INto the good book of the Chinese voters or as many of them as he possibly can.

Strike 3?

Four years ago, on 29 April 2013, I posted Najib's Han Chiang Counteroffensive in which I wrote (relevant extracts):

... if Najib really wants to break out of his 'Ardennes' like the German Army of 1944, and win over Chinese voters on both sides of the South China Sea, then he ought to arm himself with a powerful weapon that will shake Pakatan to its core, and give MCA orgasmic delights to no ends, if ...

... he were to announce that the government will, effective from 01 May 2013 [has to prior to the election otherwise the Chinese won't believe him, wakakaka) recognize the Unified Examination Certificate (UEC) of the Chinese independent high schools.

I am not joking. Najib will win one hell of a backswing to the BN by many Chinese voters.

The UEC-SML is recognized as a qualification for entrance into many tertiary educational institutions around the world, including the United Kingdom, the United States, Taiwan, Hong Kong, China, Singapore, Australia, Canada and many others except the country of its origin, namely, Malaysia.

You work out the reason why the Malaysian authority choose to be the exception, while I provide the historical reason as follows:

According to Dr Kua Kia Siong in his book, Protean Saga: The Chinese Schools of Malaysia, Dr Mahathir as Education Minister must have hated the idea and existence of the UEC so much that when he heard about Dong Jiao Zong's plans for it, he summoned the Chinese educationalists to parliament and told the leaders "... that UEC had better not be held or else ...".

He did not ask for any response and dismissed the Chinese educationalists with a curt ... 'that is all'."

That was in 1975. Obviously Dong Jiao Zong didn't give two hoots to Mahathir's arrogant ferocious but nonsensical warning, and correctly so as the 60 independent Chinese high schools in Malaysia (with 23 in East Malaysia) have been funded privately by the Chinese community and philanthropists like the late Lim Lean Teng, who was Han Chiang's long time benefactor.

But regarding the UEC, I afraid poor Najib has to deal with Mahathir's bitterest objection. Recall after the 2013 GE he told Najib not to bother with the Chinese and focus his aid-giving on Malays. We shouldn't be surprised as we know Mahathir has always harboured a frightening BIG grudge against the Chinese Malaysians.

But by tackling what warms the cockles of the Chinese hearts, namely education, Najib will be on the right track. His only problem is credibility, to wit, how reliable will the Chinese view his promise? Thus it can't just be a promise to be effected only after the election, especially a conditional one.

As I mentioned, if he really wants to win over many of the Chinese (I dare not promise all Chinese, but certainly many Chinese, even if some Pakatan supporters may not agree with me), then he must make the recognition effective prior to the election.

Mind you, the Chinese voters can still play him out, wakakaka, but that's another issue and a risk he has to take. But I think he already has some advisors who have guided him along this way.

So his biggest impediment to Strike 3 would be his erstwhile mentor, Mahathir, who dislikes Dong Jiao Zong and its UEC so much that I am sure that old man will go all out to prevent the government from recognising the UEC.

And 'ere I can say Ni Hao Ma? (wakakaka) we have Mahathir's henchman, Ibrahim Ali of Perkasa declaring (as reported by FMT):

Perkasa menentang sekeras-kerasnya termasuk akan mengisytiharkan “perang” jika kerajaan mengiktiraf Sijil Peperiksaan Bersepadu (UEC).

Presidennya, Datuk Ibrahim Ali berkata, kerajaan perlu menolak pengiktirafan UEC kerana ia bertentangan Dasar Pendidikan Kebangsaan yang terkandung dalam Akta Pendidikan 1996 dan Perkara 152 (1) Perlembagaan.

“Jangan ada parti-parti politik kecoh dan bising, jika UEC tidak diiktiraf kerajaan Malaysia."

“Menjelang pilihan raya umum, banyak buat tuntutan demi undi. Kita semua tidak boleh tolak ansur.”

Wow, Ibrahim Ali wants Perkasa to declare war if Najib were to recognise the UEC.

I wonder who could have alerted Ibrahim Ali as to Najib's possible' Strike 3?

"... that UEC had better not be held or else ..."
