Kalau Najib melancarkan buku mengisahkan kenangan ibu-ibu saudaranya, agaknya bila pula Rosmah akan melakukan sesuatu juga untuk mengenangkan jasa-jasa ibu-ibu saudaranya. Takkanlah Rosmah tak ada saudara mara langsung?

Sekian, IB

Untuk faham (jika masih belum faham) kena baca ini juga:

Ex-Communicated: Enclosure Landscapes in Palestine May 27, 2010

A Must Watch!

http://www.blip. tv/file/1610819

Please click on the web below and watch the injustice, inflicted on the Palestinians by the scum of the earth.

Synopsis:

Ex-Communicated tells the story of Israeli occupation in Palestine through the genre of landscape and the perspective of a camera lens. In his series of remarkable photographs, Gary Fields, a professor of communication at the University of California, San Diego takes us behind the walls, gates, and fences of this deliberately fragmented geography in revealing Palestinian life under Israeli military rule.

What he shows in these images is how the forces of occupation use the landscape as an instrument of control over Palestinians and a mechanism for dispossessing them of land and property. Much of this story is untold and largely unseen.

These photos convey forcefully how the process of enclosure on the landscape has “ex-communicated” Palestinians, immobilizing them into ever-diminishing spaces, while at the same time inspiring them into heroic acts of peaceful resistance.

Muslims Are Their Own Worst Enemy May 27, 2010

Muslims are numerous but powerless. Divisions among Muslims, especially between Sunni and Shi’ites, have consigned the Muslim Middle East to almost a century of Western control. Muslims cannot even play together. The Islamic Solidarity Games, a regional version of the Olympics, which were to be held in April in Iran, have been cancelled, because the Iranians and the Arabs cannot agree on whether to call the body of water that separates Iran from the Arabian Peninsula the Persian Gulf or the Arabian Gulf.

Muslim disunity has made it possible for Israel to dispossess the Palestinians, for the U.S. to invade Iraq, and for the U.S. to rule much of the region through puppets. For example, in exchange for faithful service, Egypt receives $1.5 billion a year from Washington, which enables President Mubarak to buy off opposition. The opposition had rather have the money than support the Palestinians. Therefore, Egypt cooperates with Israel and the U.S. in the blockade of Gaza.

Another factor is the willingness of some Muslims to betray their own kind for U.S. dollars. Don’t take my word for it. Listen to neoconservative Kenneth Timmerman, head of the Foundation for Democracy, which describes itself as “a private, non-profit organization established in 1995 with grants from the National Endowment for Democracy (NED) to promote democracy and internationally-recognized standards of human rights in Iran.”

By now we all know what that means. It means that the U.S. finances a “velvet” or some “color revolution” in order to install a U.S. puppet.  Just prior to the sudden appearance of a “green revolution” in Tehran primed to protest an election, Timmerman wrote that “the National Endowment for Democracy has spent millions of dollars during the past decade promoting ‘color’ revolutions in places such as Ukraine and Serbia, training political workers in modern communications and organizational techniques. Some of that money appears to have made it into the hands of pro-Mousavi groups, who have ties to non-governmental organizations outside Iran that the National Endowment for Democracy funds.”  So, according to the neocon Timmerman, funded by the National Endowment for Democracy, it was U.S. money that funded Mousavi’s claims that Armadinejad stole the last Iranian election.

During President George W. Bush’s regime it became public knowledge that American money is used to purchase Iranians to work against their own country. The Washington Post, a newspaper sympathetic to the neocon’s goal of American hegemony and war with Iran, reported in 2007 that Bush authorized spending more than $400 million for activities that included “supporting rebel groups opposed to the country’s ruling clerics.”

This makes the U.S. government a “state sponsor of terrorism.” For confirmation, one of the U.S. paid operatives, who conducted terror operations in Iran, has ratted on his terrorist supporters in Washington. Abdulmalek Rigi, leader of the Baloch separatist group responsible for several attacks, was recently arrested by the Iranians. Rigi admitted that the Americans in Washington assured him of unlimited military aid and funding for waging an insurgency against the Islamic Republic of Iran.

Possibly he was tortured into confession. It is the American way. If the “light of the world,” the “indispensable people,” and the “shining city on the hill” tortures people, perhaps the Iranians do as well. Rigi’s younger brother, himself on death row in Iran, has said that the U.S. provided direct funding to the separatist group and even ordered specific terrorist attacks inside Iran.

The U.S. and its NATO puppets have been killing Afghan women, children, and village elders since October 7, 2001, when the U.S. military invasion “Operation Enduring Freedom,” a proper Orwellian title for a self-serving war of aggression, was launched. The U.S. installed puppet president of Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai, is bought and paid for with U.S. dollars.

The money that Washington gives Karzai finances the corruption that supports him. Karzai’s corruption and his treason against the Afghan people encourage the Taliban to keep fighting in order to achieve a government that serves Afghans instead of Washington, D.C.

Without the puppet Karzai selling out Afghans to Washington, the U.S. would have already been driven out of the country. With Karzai paying Afghans with American money to fight Afghans for the Americans, the war drones on into its ninth year.

Feminists, liberals, and naive American flag-wavers will say that what is written here is utter rot, that Americans are in Afghanistan to bring women’s rights and birth control to Afghan women and to bring freedom, democracy and progress to Afghanistan, even if it means leveling every village, town, and house in the country. We, “the indispensable people,” are only there to do good, because we care so much for the Afghan people who live in a country that most Americans can’t find on a map.

While this collection of naifs rants on about America “saving” Afghans from whatever, the White House and the Congress are conspiring against the American people to cut $500 billion dollars out of Medicare in order to give the money to private insurance companies. Jobless benefits are about to run out for millions of Americans, whose jobs have been moved offshore in order to make the rich richer. The U.S. Senate failed on Friday, Feb. 26, to extend jobless benefits. A single Republican Senator, Jim Bunning of Kentucky, was able to block the bill because it would cost a measly $10 billion and “would add to the budget deficit.”

The “fiscally responsible” Bunning supports blank checks for wars of aggression (war crimes under the Nuremberg standard) and payoffs to investment banks for wrecking the retirement plans of most Americans. Bunning sends the bills to the unorganized and unrepresented Americans, whose jobs have been stolen by corporate offshoring of jobs and whose retirements have been stolen by the endless greed of the Wall Street investment banks.

What fool believes that the U.S. government, which is totally indifferent to the fate of its own citizens, cares so much about Afghanistan that it will spend blood and treasure to bring “progress” and “women’s rights” to a country half a world away, while it drives its own citizens into the ground?

At Washington’s behest, the government of Pakistan is conducting war against its own people, killing many and forcing others to flee their homes and lands. The Pakistani government’s war against its own citizens has caused military expenses to soar, putting Pakistan’s budget deep in the red. Deputy US Treasury Secretary Neal Wolin ordered the Pakistani government to raise taxes to pay for the war against its own people. The puppet ruler, Asif Ali Zardari, complied with his American master’s orders.  Zardari declared a broad-based value added tax on virtually all goods and most services in Pakistan. Thus, Pakistanis are forced to finance a war against themselves.

The “cakewalk war” in Iraq has lasted 7 years instead of the promised 6 weeks, and the violence is still ongoing with Iraqis killed and maimed nearly every day. The reason Americans are still in Iraq is because the Iraqis hate each other more than they hate the American invader. The vast majority of the violence in “the Iraq war” was committed between Iraqi Sunnis and Iraqi Shi’ites as they cleansed one another from neighborhoods.

The majority Shi’ites regarded the American invasion of Iraq as an opportunity to gain power over the minority Sunnis, who ruled under Saddam Hussein. Therefore, the Shi’ites never engaged the American invading forces. The minority Sunnis (20 percent of the population) gave most of their effort to fighting the Shi’ite majority, but in their spare time a few thousand Sunnis were able to inflict serious losses on the American superpower.

Finally realizing the power of lucre in the Arab world, the Americans put 80,000 Sunnis on the U.S. military payroll and paid them to stop killing Americans.

This is how the U.S. won the war in Iraq. Iraqis sold out their independence for American dollars.

Considering that a few thousand Sunnis were able to prevent superpower America from successfully occupying Baghdad or much of Iraq, had the Shi’ites joined with the Sunnis against the invaders, the U.S. would have been defeated and driven out. This outcome was not possible, because the Shi’ites wanted to settle the score with the Sunnis, who had ruled them under Saddam Hussein.

This is the reason that Iraq today is in ruins, with one million dead, four million displaced or homeless, and the professional class having fled the country. Iraq, under the American puppet Maliki, is an American protectorate.

As long as Muslims hate and fear one another more than they hate their conquerers, they will remain a vanquished people.

MIC kaji kedudukan dalam BN May 26, 2010

Berita seperti ini tidak dikatakan bahawa BN bergolak. Tetapi apabila berita seperti ini berlaku pada parti-parti PR, laporannya akan diulas secara lain dengan membesarkan lagi isu yang remeh.

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

T. Mohan (duduk lima dari kanan) pada sidang akhbar mengenai GAS sebelum mempengerusikan mesyuarat tergempar Pemuda MIC di Kuala Lumpur, semalam.


dipetik dari Utusan Malaysia:

KUALA LUMPUR 25 Mei – Ketua Pemuda MIC, T. Mohan hari ini menegaskan, parti itu tidak akan teragak-agak mengkaji semula kedudukannya dalam Barisan Nasional (BN) jika UMNO terlibat dalam penganjuran dan pembentukan Gerakan Anti-Samy Vellu (GAS) pada Ahad ini.

Sambil menyifatkan tindakan penganjuran berkenaan tidak wajar memandangkan Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu adalah Presiden MIC yang dipilih secara sah oleh perwakilan, beliau menggesa UMNO menjelaskan tujuan penyewaan sebuah dewan di Pusat Dagangan Dunia Putra (PWTC) pada hari berkenaan.

Menurut Mohan, beliau curiga tempahan oleh UMNO itu dibuat bagi menganjurkan perhimpunan dan pelancaran GAS bagi mendesak pemimpin tersebut meletakkan jawatan sebagai Presiden MIC lebih awal daripada perancangannya.

‘‘Apabila saya telefon PWTC pagi tadi, memang ada tempahan dewan dibuat oleh UMNO tanpa menyatakan siapa yang membuat tempahan serta untuk apa tempahan itu dilakukan.

‘‘Kami (Pemuda MIC) memang kecewa dengan perkembangan ini sekiranya ia dilakukan bagi menyokong sebuah pertubuhan haram, GAS,’’ katanya.

Beliau berkata demikian pada sidang akhbar sebelum mempengerusikan mesyuarat tergempar Pergerakan Pemuda MIC Kebangsaan di sini hari ini.

Mohan mengulas kenyataan bekas timbalannya, V. Mugilan yang dilaporkan akan membawa 7,000 ahli GAS pada majlis perhimpunan dan pelancaran pertubuhan itu di PWTC Ahad ini.

Selain Mugilan, dua ahli Jawatankuasa Kerja Pusat (CWC) MIC, G. Kumar Aamaan dan KP Samy turut dipecat daripada parti itu semalam kerana turut mendesak Samy Vellu berundur.

Berikutan desakan-desakan berkenaan, anak Samy Vellu, S. Vell Paari yang juga ahli CWC MIC dalam wawancara dengan laman web Free Malaysia Today semalam mendakwa UMNO kini melakukan ‘pembunuhan politik’ terhadap ayahnya dengan turut terlibat dalam penubuhan GAS.

Dalam perkembangan sama, Mohan turut meminta polis supaya tidak mengeluarkan permit bagi membenarkan perhimpunan dan pelancaran GAS.

Katanya, perhimpunan pertubuhan tidak berdaftar itu berupaya memberi implikasi keselamatan kepada orang awam di sekeliling kawasan tersebut.

‘‘Jika mereka kata ada 7,000 ahli serta bekas ahli parti mendesak Datuk Seri (Samy) meletakkan jawatan, saya akan bawa 14,000 ahli Pemuda MIC yang menyokong beliau (Samy Vellu) tetapi mampukah polis jamin soal keselamatan di sekeliling?

‘‘Lagipun polis pernah membatalkan perhimpunan Hindraf pada 2008 lalu yang memperjuangkan nasib komuniti India sedangkan GAS hanya bercakap mengenai seorang individu (Samy Vellu) jadi saya harap tidak ada double standard dalam hal ini,” katanya.

MUAR 25 Mei – Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin menyifatkan tindakan anak Presiden MIC, S. Vell Paari menuduh UMNO melakukan ‘pembunuhan politik’ (political assassin) untuk memecahbelahkan parti komponen Barisan Nasional (BN) itu sebagai biadab dan tidak bertanggungjawab.

Timbalan Perdana Menteri yang menafikan sekeras-kerasnya tuduhan tersebut menegaskan, kepimpinan BN dan UMNO tidak terlibat dalam masalah MIC.

Oleh itu, beliau yang juga Timbalan Pengerusi BN meminta supaya UMNO tidak dikaitkan dengan masalah dalaman parti yang diterajui Datuk Seri S. Samy Vellu itu.

“Jangan kaitkan UMNO dalam soal itu. Ia satu perbuatan yang bagi saya bukan sahaja tidak adil tetapi biadab,” katanya selepas merasmikan majlis ramah mesra Menteri Pelajaran bersama warga pendidik di Kompleks Sukan Pagoh dekat sini hari ini.

Beliau yang juga Timbalan Presiden UMNO mengulas kenyataan Vell Paari semalam yang menuduh UMNO menggunakan ‘pembunuhan politik’ untuk memecahbelahkan parti komponen BN itu dalam wawancara dengan laman web Free Malaysia Today.

Sambil merujuk desas-desus mengenai kewujudan Gerakan Anti-Samy Vellu (GAS) mendapat restu pemimpin tertinggi UMNO, Vell Paari yang juga Anggota Jawatankuasa Kerja Pusat MIC menyelar UMNO kerana memulakan tindakan berbahaya.

Menurut Muhyiddin, tuduhan Vell Paari tidak adil lebih-lebih lagi ia dibuat kerana beliau mempunyai kepentingan sebagai anak kepada Presiden MIC.

“Dia bercakap kerana dia anak presiden, jadi jangan buat tuduhan melulu. Saya nak menafikan sekeras-kerasnya bahawa kita terlibat, kalau ada pun pihak-pihak yang membuat pengakuan, itu adalah pandangan mereka tapi kepimpinan BN dan UMNO tidak terlibat,” jelasnya.

Beliau berkata, pucuk kepimpinan BN dan UMNO sentiasa mengambil kira dan menjaga kepentingan semua parti komponen dan tidak menyebelahi mana-mana pihak.

“Kita tak mahu cari jalan yang lebih menimbulkan masalah, yang ada sudah cukup,’’ katanya dan menambah perbuatan menuding jari sebagai tidak bertanggungjawab.

Beliau menasihatkan Vell Paari supaya tidak mengulangi perbuatan tersebut dan pada masa sama, Samy Vellu perlu memberi nasihat kepada anaknya agar tidak mudah melakukan sesuatu perkara yang menyentuh perasaan pemimpin-pemimpin parti lain.
