Mahathir says 9/11 was staged....

There is strong evidence that the Sept 11 attacks on the United States that killed nearly 3,000 could have been “staged” as an excuse to mount attacks on the Muslim world, said Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

And our former Prime Minister went on to say that if they could make Avatar, they could do anything. Wow. What a totally irresponsible thing to say, for a public person of significant influence! He should make a movie himself. I'm sure his imaginations of conspiracies would far surpass that of James Cameron's.

General Larry Pants On The Ground

Today is the second day of American Idol Season 9, and there are two memorable performances. Yesterday, Ashley Rodriguez blew me away with her vocals. And today, this lovely old man provided me with much comic relief. I wish the judges had put him through, his over the age limit notwithstanding. (The age limit is 28, and this general is 62.)

I've included the lyrics below.

The lyrics:

Pants on the ground
pants on the ground
lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground
with the gold in your mouth
hat turned sideways
pant hit the ground
call yourself a cool cat
lookin' like a fool
walking downtown with your pants on the ground
get it up
hey, your pants on the ground
lookin' like a fool
talking with your pants on the ground
give it up

A Second Letter to Akhramsyah Muammar Ubaidah bin Sanusi

This second letter to Akhramsyah is in response to his recent article in his blog titled "Half A Million Ringgit of Misplaced Generosity....".


Dear Akhramsyah,

Your most recent article showed you for what you are: a bitter young man who fear that his political career might  not go far ever since his father, Sanusi Junid, was sacked as the IIU President in 2008.

This time, you don't even have any valid points to make, misinformed though they were. I would have simply ignored your post, except for the way you ended it.

"I also hope that the absence or reduction of violence from Monday does not give everyone a false sense of security. The violence is probably reduced as people are at work..." (quote)

This statement of yours is intimidating and threatening. Are you trying to incite more hatred and violence? Do you take pleasure in seeing the country in turmoil? This is dangerous, and someone should report you for your seditious comments.

And please do not speak on behalf of all Malays. I happen to have quite a few good Malay friends, and they don't agree with  you. The majority of Malays are peace-loving, not an extremist like you. Unlike you, they do not think that Muslims should be encouraged to torch churches, or hurled rocks at Hindu temples, as reported in today's news.

Go get a life!

A Letter To Akhramsyah Muammar Ubaidah bin Sanusi

I am writing this letter to Akhramsyah in response to his article in The Malaysian Insider. A copy of it has been posted in the comments section.

Dear Akhramsyah,

I've never read a more preposterous statement than this. This is a classic example of someone who has insufficient information and makes a judgement based on little bits and pieces of information.

First, your point on non-Malay leaders calling Malays "pendatang". May I remind you that it was a Malay leader who first called the non-Malays "pendatang". How would you feel, if someone were to call you a "pendatang" when your great-grandparents or grandparents have taken up arms to fight together with them, stood together with them, to protect Malaysia? Would you not retaliate and call them "pendatang", since according to Sejarah, the real bumiputra are the indigenous people (orang asli)??  

Second, "No majority ruling race has happily allowed for the culture of other races to bloom other than this country ruled by Malays." May I remind you that in the whole wide world, there isn't a country where the minority supports the majority, where 90% OF THE TAX IS PAID BY THE MINORITY. In all other countries, it is the majority that carries the minority, but in Malaysia, it is the minority that carries the majority. In Malaysia, we have a mouse carrying an elephant!!!!  

Third, "Most Malay students have nowhere else to go other than public universities whilst non-malays can go private!". Are you sure of your facts? Have you looked around? There are many non-Malays who are NOT able to afford to go to a private university. There are many non-Malays who live in small flats, who work day & night to feed their family, many who can't get a job because most corporate companies are now bumiputra-owned, and as a last resort, are selling pirate DVDs, or going from table to table in coffee shops selling RM10 items? Are you aware of this?  

Wake up, it is NOT the non-Malays who are screwing up the Malays. In fact, the non-Malays actually sympathise with the Malays who are poor, because we know that the people who are screwing the Malays are a few Malays who are in power. Those few Malays are the ones who took all the money meant for the Malays (money contributed by non-Malays) and use it for themselves.  

So, please check your facts before you speak.

Malaysia, Malaysia, Oh My Malaysia.....

Negaraku, tanah tumpahnya darahku,
Rakyat hidup, bersatu dan maju,
(My country, the land where my blood is shed,
The people live united and progressive,)

Today, I weep for Malaysia, the Malaysia I know and love. For today is a sad day, indeed, when children of Malaysia took the law into their own hands and started torching churches, ahead of the planned Friday demonstrations in mosques.

And the ONE man who can put a stop to it, the ONE man who is promoting ONE Malaysia, is guilty of escalating this tension, despite his denial. How could he deny that UMNO is responsible for this tension when he has approved of the planned demonstrations? When he and Hishamuddin had said that Muslims have a right to protest against the High Court ruling in favour of non-Muslims using the word 'Allah'??

Malaysia has indeed regressed, with a mentality worthy of a one-year-old kid!!!  Grow up, Malaysia.
