MY ANSWER TO 'firstname.lastname@example.org'
Assalamualaikum my fellow friends....May The Almighty of ALLAH will always with us and save our fellow Malays! Even though Mat Ju has chosen to show to us here that he has totally disagree with me and tried to UNDERSTAND me the concept of Malays & Islam and again no harm bout that. I am motivated by the love to fellow Malays, as well as by an understanding of the immense importance of the personal example of the Prophet (Allah bless him and give him peace), the Malay communities deserved to be bless by THE ALMIGHTY OF ALLAH and yet I have no interest to express my respect to non-Malays since all of us are ‘Melayu Islam’. Ju shouted why Malays? Straight forward answer that we all Malays and definitely we are MUSLIM. Perhaps, from childhood, until this present day, we have sought to imitate the example of our Great Prophet Muhammad (Allah bless him and give him peace) in all its details, unless they were of the particular matters that ALLAH MOST HIGH chose only for Him.
And I am HURT by Mat Ju degrading words. One should not be protective over him. But please remember, we are still MALAY, who has a problem in expressing our views tactfully. I am sure, being a true MALAY, you still adhere to our good values, rite?. Quoted from Mat Ju, ‘last word, i love to support joe's statement on RM500. it's too secondary this RM500 will be part of hujah in supporting PPSMI. this materialistc hujah shouldn't be the justification in promoting PPMSI, this only shows how _ _ _ _ think.’ . Whatever alphabet that 'fillet' 4 blank box, ’I have to think’ & I have to take a count that RM500 is also MY LAST CONSIDERATION in supporting PPSMI. I’m tried not to be idealistic and co-horde with STIGMA THINKING. Just to synergies & draw-up a chronology that related with my lateral’s life & families.
Not being apologetic to Mat Ju, I am just looking at this PPSMI’s issue at a different perspective. CONFLICT among Malays have to be avoid and do not let OTHERS smile triumphantly because we are going to take this as a challenge to improve our race.
Yes, I do believe we have a duty to REEDUCATE misfits whoelse disagree with PPSMI. Well, in a case like this, it is not reeducating, that needs, but reminding. I am sure we have been educated with good values during our boarding time at FARISPETRA and guys, we can make a difference.
Anyway, I am not in a position to justify which one best or not for our future Malays, but at least I have to make sure my future legacy will be learning with a WELL-STRUCTURED education system that drafted by the current leaders. But there are usually REASONS as to WHY certain things work or are successful. Even the Quran asked us to look at History and study the past of what happened in past civilizations. .. and the very study of the rise and fall of civilizations is one of the most interesting study of mankind one could take.
Just wanna share with all fellow Malays, the other BOTTOM LINE which a TYPICAL MALAY as mySELF has FAILED to see, which is a SAD fact is... WHY Chinese and Indians don't talk as badly or admit certain things about their own race is:
a) YOU are NOT the TYPE of person or 'MALAY' that they would feel comfortable or OPEN enough to TALK about these sort of things openly about with...
b) IF they... the Other Races in this country WERE to talk about the negative aspects of their own race... well, if they and even WE were to WEIGH the positive and negative aspects... their POSITIVE ASPECTS as well as what they have ACHIEVED as a RACE... historically as well as their RACES contribution to Human Kind and Human Civilization. .. whether it be in terms of early calculus from India, the worlds first Calculator from China, Silk, Gunpowder, Spices, Agricultural knowledge and even early mining... these POSITIVE aspects can OUTWEIGH the negative ANYTIME...
So... can somebody tell me... for Malay Leaders and our Malays to act with our Ketuanan Melayu. WHAT HAS THE MALAY RACE CONTRIBUTED towards the development of HUMAN CIVILIZATION? ?? Simple question is it not? It’s A LOTS. If we want SPECIAL RIGHTS and to consider ourselves SPECIAL with SPECIAL PREVILEGES.. . .there HAS to be something special about Malays in the first place right??? Or are we the OTHER definition of Special or 'Istimewa'…Definitely we are SPECIAL.
Coz if you view Malays from a Investors perspective in terms of Return On Investment, that means that we're a BAD INVESTMENT as a race and slowly becoming TOO DEPENDENT on the Government…a SUBSIDIZED RACE with a SUBSIDIZED MENTALITY... and even PROUD to be SUBSIDIZED too... now WHERE is the honor in THAT as a MALAYS???
Let dig it out, we are here learning and listening with calm and remember that everyone can share & throwing brilliant appraisal for kindness member of the floors. Take it positive. Time to change! Actually I am in a corner to START a kind of FORUM to be brand as ‘WACANA PEMBINAAN BANGSA’. Definitely my fellow friends here can contribute as a speaker later on. Guys, really need your support and great ideas on this matter. ‘WACANA PEMBINAAN BANGSA’.
Anyway, this is the time for MELAYU BANGKIT! Malays have to know that there is a group of people is against us, MALAYS! We have to UNITE! We have to start a move to shut them off and WE MALAYS HAVE TO WALK TOGETHER! COME ON MALAYS! MELAYU HARUS BANGKIT SEGERA!

15Apr09The REAL Umno agenda

Categories: Analisis, Hebahan, Isu Semasa, Malaysia, Media, Politik and Sidenotes Utusan Malaysia is very mischievous and we should not allow them to get away with this. We should go out and buy some copies of Utusan Malaysia and burn them. Can we organise a ‘Burn Utusan Malaysia Day’? Then we should ask all the newspaper vendors and shops to boycott Utusan Malaysia.
By Raja Petra Kamarudin
Read the following piece published in Utusan Malaysia yesterday (Bangkitlah Melayu). If this is not considered seditious then I really don’t know what is. Opposition supporters, me included, have been made to face the court on sedition charges for lesser than what Utusan Malaysia wrote below.
The article starts by asking the Malays to rise up and unite in facing the ‘extreme demands’ of the ‘other races’. ‘They’ must be aware and remorseful about the current political situation that is witnessing all sorts of demands by the non-Malays that can result in Malay political power being jeopardised. Malays are asked to not bow to these extreme demands but on the other hand must rise up and unite to defend their rights and interests.
The article goes on to say that there are enough ‘Malay’ seats in Parliament for the Malays to form the government with just Malay seats. In other words, the Malays do not need the non-Malays to form the government. Therefore, the government must fulfil whatever demands of the Malays because the Malays are the majority and there should be no compromise with the non-Malays.
Umno will become strong if it looks after the interest of the Malays. So Ummo needs to focus on the Malays and not fear the non-Malays, as the non-Malays will automatically support Barisan Nasional if Umno is strong like in the past.
And the article goes on to say that the government must only worry about the Malays and not be too concerned about the non-Malays and that Umno must do whatever is necessary in the interest of the Malays.
That is not what I am saying. That is what Utusan Malaysia said. And Utusan Malaysia is owned by the political party in power and speaks on behalf of the political party in power. And what Utusan Malaysia is saying is a repetition of what Ali Rustam said at the PPP Melaka convention in 2007 — that the Malays have ruled this country for 50 years without the help and support of the non-Malays and can continue doing so for another 50 years.
Utusan Malaysia is talking crap. In the 2008 general election, Barisan Nasional garnered 4,082,411 or 50.27% of the popular votes to win 140 seats in Parliament. That is slightly over half the eight million votes cast. With the loss of Kuala Terengganu in the recent by-election, it is now down to 139 seats.
Three million Malaysians who are registered voters did not bother to vote and another four to five million did not register as voters. That means, while eight million Malaysians voted, another seven to eight million did not. And that also means Barisan Nasional formed the government with votes from just 25% of the eligible voters or votes from 15% of the entire Malaysian population.
That is not really so great is it? How does Utusan Malaysia figure out that Umno or Barisan Nasional commands the support of the majority of Malaysians, in particular Malay Malaysians?
Umno won only 79 out of 222 parliament seats in the 2008 general election. That includes Kuala Terengganu, which they have now lost, and 13 more seats in Sabah. That means Umno has only 65 parliament seats in Peninsular Malaysia. That is less than 30% of the seats, not really enough to form a government without the non-Malay seats.
Maybe Utusan Malaysia was looking at the 20 ‘Malay’ seats from PKR and the 23 (now 24 with Kuala Terengganu) from PAS. If the 44 ‘Malay’ seats from Pakatan Rakyat were merged with Umno’s 78 (assuming the 13 seats in Sabah remain with Umno), the Malays would now control 122 seats in parliament, a majority of only 11 seats considering 50% of 222 is 111. Nevertheless, it will still just be a simple majority and worse than what Barisan Nasional has now, 139 seats.
How does Utusan Malaysia figure that the Malays can run this country with just Malay seats? They can form a federal government no doubt but it will be a government with a simple majority and with lesser seats that what it has now. Anyway, this is a purely academic discussion because, in the first place, the 44 Pakatan Rakyat ‘Malay’ seats will not swing to Umno — expect for maybe two and we know whom those two are.
In the 2008 general election, Umno garnered only 2,381,725 or 29% of the votes. But not all these votes came from Malays. Umno actually won these seats because many non-Malays voted for it. If based just on Malay votes, Umno would have been demolished just like the other component members of Barisan Nasional. The next time around, Umno is not going to get these non-Malay votes as the four by-elections since 8 March 2008 have proven (unless the Chinese, Indians and ‘others’ are still bodoh macam lembu).
PKR, on the other hand, garnered 1,509,080 or 19% of the votes while PAS garnered 1,140,676 or 14%. This means, while Umno won 79 seats and PKR-PAS a total of only 54 seats on 8 March 2008, PKR and PAS combined garnered more than 2.6 million or 33% of the popular votes. That is more than what Umno got.
Figures don’t lie. And the figures show that Umno did not really do as great as they pretend they did. And there would be no way Umno can form the government with just ‘Malay’ seats even if PKR and PAS agreed to merge with them because UMNO, PKR and PAS all won their seats with non-Malay votes as well and not purely on Malay votes. And, in the first place, why should PKR and PAS want to merge with Umno when Umno’s ideology is Malay Supremacy or Ketuanan Melayu and PKR and PAS are both opposed to this?
And that, fellow Malaysians, is the real issue. Umno knows what we know. They are not stupid. In fact, they have plenty of money and can afford to buy the best brains to work for them. And they have been told that their days are numbered unless they can get the Malays to abandon the opposition cause and come and ‘unite’ under Umno.
Yes, that’s right. Umno wants the Malays to unite. But it must be to unite under Umno. If the Malays unite under the opposition — or the Malays unite with the Chinese, Indians and ‘others’ — then that is not considered uniting. That is considered berpecah.
Utusan Malaysia is very mischievous and we should not allow them to get away with this. We should go out and buy some copies of Utusan Malaysia and burn them. Can we organise a ‘Burn Utusan Malaysia Day’? Then we should ask all the newspaper vendors and shops to boycott Utusan Malaysia. And if any shop continues to sell Utusan Malaysia then we should boycott that shop. And those shops must be told that we are boycotting them and why we are boycotting them so that they know and will stop selling Utusan Malaysia if they want us to end the boycott of their shops.
Malays should start this campaign. This will be a message to Utusan Malaysia and Umno that Malays too do not subscribe to racism and dangerous rabble rousing with racial overtones. Malays must demonstrate to their non-Malay brothers and sisters that the Utusan Malaysia and Umno agenda is not the agenda of the majority of the Malays.
Yes, I know, this article is going to now get me into trouble, again, and the police will soon be raiding my house to confiscate my computer, and I will be called in for interrogation and charged in court, yet again, for sedition. That is my problem. In the meantime, can we show our displeasure at the attempt to make Malays and non-Malays fight by making a bonfire out of Utusan Malaysia?
