Quote of the year: Something to chew on, while waiting for the New Year and the coming General Elections.

“If the Barisan Nasional is really strong as they claim, they do not have to resort to such measures.”

(Source: Ansari Abdullah, lawyer and Parti KeADILan Rakyat‘s Sabah Liaison Chief, referring to high-handed police tactics.. Quoted in Daily Express, Sabah. Ansari is also the lawyer for former Chief Minister of Sabah Chong Kah Kiat who filed a lawsuit against the Kudat Town Board over the construction of a Mazu statue)

That’s exactly right.
Their actions not only show how weak BN is…but exposed UMNO never play a game with level fields. Rules …referees …linesmen..are all chosen by them for a game to fool spectators. All BN supporting parties have proven to be non democratic …but worried for their own party future. They are such cowards and hypocrites.
Few individuals did speak out against UMNO bravely…and hope more dare to speak out….especially from MIC side…that is…if any Indians have the decency to protect their own kind sincerely.

On the other hand, anti-BN movement is so much stronger than you have ever imagined, thanks to communication and organisation capability made possible by the Internet. The 1998 Reformasi was a feeling of loneliness because you never knew how many people were with you. But now, you know. And you can get organised to do wonder, like Nov10 Bersih rally.

But we must be cautious with the fact that many people on the ground (the common rakyat) are not on the Net yet. But then we do have SMS and Bluetooth. So passionate Msians must work harder by leveraging on such common technologies to spread the truth.

With the new year of 2008 coming, here is a piece of good news: technology continously improves and innovates itself, that soon the old broadcast and print media, which is currently under control of BN, will be obsolete and irrelevant. Technology is democratising people!

The Umno regime is advocating the Saudi Monarch kingdom of rule.

Let be realistic on this, the BN is the monarch of kingdom of Malaysia and the real ‘Monarch’ is the ZzzzzPM who is more ‘Agong’ than the real but no-power Agong.

Malaysia is practicing the Arabic Islam which fits nicely into the ‘policy’ of Islam Hadhari.

This Islam Hadhari deviates from the true teaching of the Book.

But you know I know all these avaricious politicians are fond of using Allah to market their products.

There is no better way of marketing their products using Allah as a testimony. Only those innocent Muslims will believe these Umno political charlatans.

So stop using Allah or God’s name to dupe innocent people.

Will Allah or God punish those despicable perpetrators?

They will only know when their times have come!
