Alexander Solzhenitsyn, who has died aged 89, was a prolific novelist and memoirist, whose life’s work, in the best traditions of Russian literature, transcended the realm of pure letters. He was a moral and spiritual leader, whose books were noted as much for their ethical dimension as for their aesthetic qualities. Between 1968 and 1976, he was a towering figure in the twin worlds of literature and politics, expressing the pain of his long-suffering people and single-handedly challenging the autocratic government of one of the world’s two superpowers.

Solzhenitsyn’s moral authority was not easily earned. It was the fruit, in p (more…)

ANALYSIS

AUG 5 — Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim will win the Permatang Pauh by-election by a mile. And Pakatan Rakyat could end up snaring more seats if snap elections were held soon.

This scenario is not far-fetched judging by findings of a recent survey which debunks the notion that there is widespread remorse bias among Malaysians for supporting the Opposition in Election 2008.

Indeed, the poll shows that the sentiment towards Pakatan Rakyat has strengthened since March 8, especially among Chinese and Indians voters. The comprehensive survey on political developments in the country saw more than 3,000 people being interviewed last month.

Just over 31 per cent of those polled said that their view of the Opposition has remained the same since March 8 while 36.7 per cent said that their view of the Opposition has improved.

KUALA LUMPUR: The Anti-Corruption Agency (ACA) is investigating howa little-known IT company with little experience became the local partner in the RM1bil project to upgrade the Royal Malaysian Police’s communication systems from analogue-based to digital.

The project has since been scaled down.

According to sources, the ACA was also probing how a Singapore-based company, several of whose directors are Israeli nationals, was awarded a slice of the project when it was against the Government’s directive to do so.

The Israelis are said to be former officers in the Israeli Air Force.

The upgrading of the communications system would enable traffic policemen, those in mobile patrol vehicles and beat-duty policemen to communicate with each other and with their control centres.

The sources said the authorities had begun their preliminary inquiries into the companies to ascertain whether there was any irregularity in the awarding of the project and whether they could pose a security risk.

Kami merasa kesal dengan kejadian kekasaran ke atas seorang jurugambar wanita Loh Hoay Hoon dari Guang Ming Daily. Insiden yang berlaku itu terjadi di lokasi ceramah Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim di Seberang Jaya, Pulau Pinang. Siasatan terhadap insiden tersebut telah dan sedangpun berjalan. Parti Keadilan Rakyat sentiasa memandang tinggi dan menghargai usaha pihak media untuk melaporkan sebarang program anjuran kami. Kami juga akan memastikan sedaya upaya tiada lagi insiden yang tidak diingini berlaku pada masa hadapan.

[7 BRANCHES OF MCA PETALING JAYA UTARA]

Dateline: 1st August 2008

1) We refer to our Press Conference on 29 July 2008 and our Press Statement issued on the same day. We note that as of now, there is no response from the MCA top leadership or BN top leadership to our said Press Statement. WE CALL UPON THE MCA LEADERSHIP ESPECIALLY TO MAKE A STAND. MAKE CLEAR YOUR POSITION.

2) As an aside, we also deeply regret the news blackout / news spin by the mainstream print media on our Press Conference. In particular, we would like to cite the Star for their news blackout, and the New Straits Times for the report dated 30 July 2008 on our Press Conference. The NST report on our Press Conference read as if their reporters attended a different Press Conference from that which we gave! We have taken this unusual step of censuring the NST because their article is so misleading, and the Star for not publishing the Press Conference despite having a reporter present, that the Rakyat from all over the country have been calling us to find out if the actual Press Statement put out by us at the Press Conference (subsequently published on the internet) is genuine!

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim menyeru rakyat agar tidak termakan dengan dakyah perkauman yang ditiupkan oleh UMNO.

Muslihat UMNO yang sentiasa bergantung kepada politik lapuk juga dikritik oleh Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim, “Nak tolong melayu kena tindas cina, nak tolong cina kena pukul melayu, ini politik lama.” Ceramah tersebut juga menampilkan tokoh-tokoh seperti YB Azmin Ali, YB Husam Musa, YAB Lim Guan Eng dan Datuk Seri Wan Azizah.

Selain itu Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim mengumumkan satu agenda penting Pakatan Rakyat sebaik sahaja ia dapat memerintah, iaitu penurunan harga minyak.

“Langkah awal selepas bentuk kerajaan adalah turunkan harga minyak, 3 minggu lalu 50 sen(harga minyak di pasaran $135 setong), hari ini (selepas kita kaji), 70 sen(harga pasaran turun kepada $125 setong).”

Penurunan harga minyak merupakan langkah penting untuk meringankan beban rakyat. Rakyat merupakan agenda utama Pakatan Rakyat, bukannya memastikan kroni serta keluarga kaya raya dan rakyat papa kedana.

PKR de facto leader Anwar Ibrahim mixed skillful staccato attack with lessons in the economics of oil pricing and prudent financial management when welcoming former MCA Wanita deputy leader Dr Tan Yee Kew and 1,700 others to the PKR fold in Klang today.

Speaking to a staunchly middle-class audience that packed the convention hall of the Klang Executive Club in Jalan Bukit Raja, the PKR chief wove a theory of oil price fixing gleaned from petroleum pricing expert Daniel Yergin into his standard set of rhetorical darts aimed at Barisan Nasional.

“Daniel Yergin, a renowned expert in the economics of petroleum price fixing, said that US$135 per barrel is the break point in the international market,” explained Anwar to an overflow crowd that at that point could be forgiven for thinking that the PKR supremo was referring to a game of tennis.

AUG 2 — “If you ask me what kind of image I want”, he once told me at my office in Jalan Telawi, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur, “I want an image of a liberal.”

He does not want to be a true liberal as the notions of spontaneous order, the virtue of the market and limited government are too strange for him. He just wanted a public perception that he wasn’t an Islamic fundamentalist or a Malay ultra.

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim was still languishing in prison when I had this conversation with Ezam Mohd Nor and our party was dogged with an identity problem. I had yet to know then that he was already a mole, a Reformasi Lai Teck.

WALL STREET JOURNAL ASIA - Malaysia’s high-stakes political standoff just had the ante upped. With the resignation of his wife from Parliament yesterday, opposition leader Anwar Ibrahim declared he’s running for office in the by-election to fill her seat. The question now is whether the government will allow him to do so.

The stakes are high for the ruling National Front. Mr. Anwar’s three-party opposition coalition controls 82 of 222 parliamentary seats. If Mr. Anwar wins office — which seems likely, given he’s running for the seat he held for 17 years — the opposition says 30 MPs would defect to their side, giving them a majority and likely felling the government. Mr. Anwar would be on his way to becoming Prime Minister.

NST – GEORGE TOWN: The state DAP will activate its election machinery to assist Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim in the Permatang Pauh parliamentary by-election.

State DAP chairman Chow Kon Yeow said party workers on the mainland would provide whatever assistance needed by Anwar and Pakatan Rakyat during the by-election.

Chow said the DAP accepted Parti Keadilan Rakyat (PKR) and its president Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail’s decision for Anwar to contest.
