Many people, especially some cantankerous bloggers and doctors are wondering why the Malaysian Medical Association (MMA) has so far not spoken. See Not sodomy-related? Let’s not be anal( Malaysiakini July 31).

Until now, I have remained silent on this issue, as my liberal and passionate views of social justice may not be acceptable to many who feel that we should be cautious in accommodating the powers that be.

Siri Jelajah Menuju Putrajaya di BentongSiri Jelajah Menuju Putrajaya di BentongSiri Jelajah Menuju Putrajaya di Bentong
Umum mengetahui mutakhir ini harga minyak petrol telah mulai turun dari $135 setong kepada sekitar $120 setong. Perubahan harga ini mendorong kita untuk terus komited menurunkan harga minyak sebaik sahaja Pakatan Rakyat memerintah Malaysia.Rentetan daripada perkembangan baru ini, saya menjelaskan bahawa jika hari ini Pakatan Rakyat memerintah, esok harga minyak petrol turun sebanyak 70 sen. Mesej ini saya sampaikan di sepanjang siri ceramah saya dan yang terbaru di Bentong, malam semalam.Berikutan pengumuman ini maka adanya tuduhan dilemparkan kononnya mekanisme penurunan harga minyak yang saya anjurkan bersifat populis. Pemilihan perkataan tersebut sememangnya melucukan. Ianya bertujuan menyembunyikan fakta jelas iaitu hasrat kita ialah untuk meringankan beban rakyat. Kita tidak populis, kita pro-rakyat! Kelemahan Barisan Nasional yang diketuai Umno di dalam mengurus ekonomi serta menyalahguna khazanah negara tidak lagi boleh dibiarkan.Matlamat kita ke Putrajaya bagi memastikan perubahan berlaku dan institusi-institusi kenegaraan dipulihkan. Ekonomi berada dalam keadaan gelita manakala mutu pendidikan merudum!

Dan saya percaya semua rakyat Malaysia juga berkongsi keresahan ini. Pujangga besar Muhammad Iqbal dalam karyanya Zabur-e-Ajam tepat sekali dalam mengungkapkan hasrat Pakatan Rakyat untuk membuat perubahan:

Membakar semangat baru
untuk bangsa dan zaman ini;
Memberi nyawa baru
pada jasad yang telah tua.

KUALA LUMPUR (The Sun, Aug 5, 2008) : The Bar Council has raised several questions over issues arising from what it terms as “troubling” reports over the medical examination by a doctor of Mohd Saiful Bukhari Azlan who accuses Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim of committing sodomy.

“Reports that the examination, done a few hours before Saiful lodged a police report against Anwar, showed no evidence that Saiful had been sodomised by anyone has raised serious quesions,” said Bar Council president Datuk Ambiga Sreenevasan.

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.

Amaran juga ditujukan kepada UMNO agar berhati-hati dengan metod berkempen mereka kerana perhatian dunia serta tempatan sekarang tertumpu kepada pilihanraya kecil yang bakal diadakan ini.

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.
