AUG 12 — Crossing over is too neutral. Let’s call it defection.

I have forgotten the exact date of Dr Chandra Muzaffar’s defection to the Barisan Nasional. He was a founding member of my party, yes, and deputy president too.

Was there any sweetener involved? Only God knows. He became a scholar again, and a BN public intellectual. For several years he was out of the limelight; for as long as he was a PKR leader, he was a bête noire to the BN media establishment.

Birthday lunch at Marche with PKR Secretariat staff and friends

I was presented with a special gift from Secretary General Dato Salehuddin Hashim and his staff – an engraved plaque displaying an inspiring quotation from President Theodore Roosevelt:

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

Opposition politician Anwar Ibrahim faces new gay-sex allegations that many observers believe are politically motivated.

By Sabrina Chan, BusinessWeek

History is repeating itself in politically embattled Malaysia. “This is malicious slander, and I’m not guilty,” declared former Deputy Prime Minister and current opposition politician Anwar Ibrahim, 60, on Aug. 7 in court after being formally charged for allegedly sodomizing a male aide, 23-year-old Saiful Bukhari Azlan.

Ikhtiar, strategi, usaha gigih – semuanya perlu ditingkatkan! Namun kita harus terus bermunajat kepada Allah Azzawajalla. Maka giatkan amal, doa dan solat hajat.

Pagi tadi di perkarangan An-Nahdhah Penanti, sahabat kami Ustaz Mutalib memimpin bacaan Yasin dan solat hajat. Saya terkesan sekali dengan tazkirah singkatnya, termasuk menimba pengajaran dari seorang alim yang memilih mendidik, mengherdik dan mendera putera raja. Sang putera merasa dianiayai lantas menaruh dendam terhadap gurunya.

Arakian, sang putera ditabal sebagai Raja. Si alim dititah mengadap dan disergah mengapa didera tanpa alasan? Gurunya menjawab dengan tenang bahawa demikianlah latihan sebaiknya buat raja agar merasakan perasaan orang yang derita akibat dizalimi dan harus melaksanakan keadilan.

Ustaz Mutalib meminta saya bersabar dengan penderaan, fitnah dan kezaliman yang dilalui bagi melayakkan diri memikul beban besar nanti, inshaallah. Dan semoga kezaliman dihindari. Wallahu’alam.

Bday boss

Alhamdulillah, diizinkan Allah untuk terus menghirup udara segar seusai umur 61 tahun.

Terharu saya dengan limpahan ucapan dan doa sempena Hari Lahir. Anak saya menokok mesej – kini kian tua!

Tanggal 10 Ogos lebih bermakna dengan dukungan padu teman-teman, pastinya tidak terkecuali dengan Azizah, anak-anak dan cucu kesayangan, Safiyah.

Acapkali tiba tanggal ini, saya terkenangkan Allahyarham bonda Che Yan tercinta, sahabat-sahabat karib termasuk Almarhum Ustaz Fadhil Noor dan nukilan puisi Allahyarham Usman Awang tatkala saya masih di istana hinggap Sungai Buloh.

Curahan doa, kata perangsang, ucapan selamat dan tanda ingatan daripada teman-teman, sahabat handai dan juga pengunjung sekalian amat saya hargai.

Moga Allah terus kurniakan kekuatan buat saya, dan pastinya buat rakyat sekaliannya.

Terima kaseh atas ucap selamat pengunjung kepada saya sempena Hari Lahir. Saya terharu!

Selain itu terdapat respon pengunjung yang ingin saya ulas. Kebetulan saya dalam perjalanan pulang dari Permatang Pauh ke Segambut.

Isu Moral Lompat Parti

Hentamajele menyentuh isu tersebut yang turut diulas Setiausaha Agung, Sdr Sallehudin Hashim beberapa hari lalu. Bagaimana dengan penipuan PRU, rasuah, penindasan? Lebih beretika dan bermoral kalangan yang sanggup menyeberang demi membela nasib rakyat dan tidak bersekongkol dengan perasuah!

Kesihatan Sheikh Yusuf al-Qardawi
Sheikh Yusuf kini semakin pulih dan terpaksa mengurangkan jadual penerbangan. Seperti Sdr Slyderrose, saya sendiri mendoakan agar beliau sihat dan berkunjung ke sini.

Pengorbanan Azizah
Ulasan Antares menyentuh hati kami.Terima kasih daun keladi!

Prof John Esposito
Saya syorkan Sdr Thales membaca ulasan H Amri. Agak aneh kecurigaan sdr! Esposito merupakan murid almarhum Ismail al Faruqi, sarjana dan pengulas handal menyanggah prasangka kelompok pelampau anti Islam di Barat utamanya di Amerika Syarikat. Ulama serta sarjana Islam saperti Syed Hussin Nasr, Sheikh Nuh dan lain-laim menjalin hubungan baik dengan beliau. Akhirnya bacalah karya terbaru beliau – Who Speaks For Islam?

Permatang Pauh
Semangat melonjak, namun kita harus bekerja keras dan waspada. Jentera Umno-BN akan berhempas pula dengan tipu helah dan rasuah. Teman kami melapurkan strategi BTN menghumban segala fitnah jijik terhadap saya termasuk selaku agen Yahudi dan Cina!

InshaAllah medan pertarungan dan kemenangan di Permatang Pauh sebagai lonjakan ke arah perubahan besar di negara tercinta.

From Straits Times

KUALA LUMPUR – OPPOSITION leader Anwar Ibrahim chose a significant theme to speak about at a rally which he used to launch his campaign to return to Parliament.

‘Yes, I am a Malay agent, I am a Chinese agent, I am an Indian agent, and I am an agent of the people,’ he told the cheering thousands who gathered at the rally in Penang on Sunday.

It was a clever message, and to Datuk Seri Anwar’s credit, also a consistent one. Over the last few years, he has been honing his image as a multiracial leader of Malaysia.

A cursory assessment of his successes and failures since coming into office in November 2003 is not a pretty picture.

By Leslie Lopez, The Straits Times

BY DECLARING his intention to hand over power in mid-2010, Malaysia’s beleaguered Prime Minister Abdullah Badawi must now grapple with the question of how history will judge him.

A cursory assessment of his successes and failures since coming into office in November 2003 is not a pretty picture.

Findings of a recent survey by the respected Merdeka Centre showed that his popularity has slumped to its lowest level, cynicism towards his administration is on the rise and public confidence in the security and justice systems has eroded further.

Yesterday evening we had dinner with John Esposito and his wife Jean and other friends. John is the Founder and Director of the Center for Muslim Christian Understanding at Georgetown University where I taught courses from 2005-2006. We had planned to meet during his visit but I was worried whether or not I would be able to keep the appointment because of our appearance in court on Thursday.

Alhamdulillah we had a wonderful evening together. John told us about the enormous success of his latest book, Who Speaks for Islam which has just been translated to Bahasa and will be launched in Jakarta on Sunday.

I remembered the time I spent at Georgetown University with great fondness. Away from the hectic schedule that Azizah and I keep in Malaysia, we spent time together as a family. My Georgetown students were exceptionally bright and interested in Southeast Asian politics. I hope they are following the latest developments closely as Malaysia goes through such an important phase in its history.
