THE CROOKED BRIDGE AND ME -TUN M

THE CROOKED BRIDGE AND ME


1. Some people believe that I am so angry over not building the crooked bridge that I want Najib to resign.

2. I am not so frivolous. Yes, I am disappointed, especially as Najib appealed to the Singapore PM to build a bridge and the latter rejected it. It is shameful that we dare not build a bridge in our own land without approval by Singapore.

3. This shameful episode is not enough for me to ask Najib to step down. Najib is the son of Tun Razak, the man responsible for my elevation to Prime Ministership. Partly for that reason and partly because Najib showed good performance when I was PM, I wanted Najib to be PM. And people know I worked hard at it pressuring Abdullah to appoint him as DPM, so that he would become PM, when Abdullah leaves.

4. But Najib failed in many areas after becoming PM. Apart from the bridge he did not go ahead with the double tracking and electrification of the railway line from J.B. to Padang Besar which had been agreed upon but was dropped by Abdullah. For 14 billion Ringgit we would have this project completed by 2010. Instead, forced by the demand, he sanctioned the continuation of the track from Ipoh to Padang Besar for 12 billion Ringgit. We lost a lot of money.

5. Then he began to recruit his own 4th floor boys plus a number of British personnel to advise him on how to run the country. They, also used foreign consultants costing more than 7 billion ringgit. We had achieved independence in 1957 and we got rid of British advisers. We did better without them. Najib did not seem to believe in the Malaysian capacity to develop the country.

6. Ignoring the EPU and other Government departments he set up a new agency to plan the development of the country. This agency was headed by a non-civil servant and the salaries of these personnel far exceed that paid to civil servants.

7. The civil servants were very unhappy. In the past they on their own transformed this country from a developing country to a middle-income nation. Now their services, their expertise and experience are no longer needed.

8. They had always been loyal to the BN Government. Now many no longer support the Government. Some even join the opposition after retirement and stood as candidates in elections.

9. As a result of the role given to this new agency the policies of the Government were changed. Najib was told that the rejection of Abdullah in 2008 was due to Chinese dislike for the New Economic Policy. To win them back Najib must ignore affirmative action and should be seen to be more supportive of the Chinese and Indians.

10. He reduced places for bumis in the Government Universities even though in the numerous private universities and twinned colleges, bumis make up less than 10%. Bumiputra contactors and small business no longer had government favour. Most had to stop their businesses.

11. Without saying so in so many words he had adopted the Malaysian Malaysia slogan of the opposition, only calling it One Malaysia instead.

12. Responding to opposition demand he abolished the ISA and freed all those under restricted residence. Crime rates went up.

13. Then he started giving money to people, not just to individuals who earn less than RM3000/- per month but to the associations and the corporate sector as well. Billions were spent on this.

14. Then rallies were organised on every occasions. The organisers were instructed to gather 10,000 people. They were given food and allowances and were transported to the sites, where they were given placards to hold up with “I love PM” written on them. A song 1M4U was composed and sung even at the national day parade.

15. Despite all these the Chinese refused to support Najib. They flocked to the opposition and he performed worse than Abdullah in the 13th General Election.

16. The Malays too did not support Najib. Selangor after he headed UMNO did worse than 2008. Malays only voted for BN because they feared Anwar would appoint Kit Siang as DPM.

17. Through all these I continued to support Najib. On the few occasions I met him, I told him his strategy was wrong but my views were ignored. I said before the 2013 elections that if he did worse than Abdullah he should resign. I had fully expected him to do better than Abdullah.

18. When he failed I told people that they should continue to support him. I was prepared, despite everything to see him lead the BN in the 14th GE.

19. But now with the controversies dogging him I am sure BN would lose if he leads it in the 14th GE.

20. There are many things about his personal behavior that I thought were not right. But I was prepared to overlook them, including he and his wife’s lavish lifestyle.

21. But when he cannot explain where billions of Ringgits have gone to and his involvement with questionable people in the management of 1MDB, I felt that he is not fit to be the Prime Minister of this country.

22. I will explain about how he lost billions of Ringgit in my next blog.

[TGHHA DIHINA KAW KAW OLEH KEPIMPINAN DAP] ... #PrkRompin : PAS dan DAP Tetap Bertelagah



Kemelut DAP dan PAS tidak langsung menampakkan keadaan akan reda malah dua Pilihanraya Kecil, (PRK) dalam tempoh terdekat ini dilihat tidak mampu menenangkan pertelingkahan dua sekutu pakatan pembangkang itu.

Pengarah Pendidikan Politik DAP, Liew Chin Tong berkata, serangan Hadi sekadar menurunkan status beliau ke tahap pemimpin pecahan dalam parti.

“Sedihnya, Hadi gagal memberi ilham kepada rakyat Malaysia untuk memerangi UMNO pada waktu kritikal ini.

“Daripada pemimpin nasional, saya fikir Hadi membenarkan kedudukannya dipotong separuh dan kini dilihat hanya sekadar seorang pemimpin pecahan,” kata Chin Tong yang juga ahli parlimen Kluang.

Konflik berterusan DAP dan PAS menyaksikan PAS Permatang Pauh menolak untuk menyokong PKR dalam PRK itu malah turut mengisytiharkan haram untuk mengundi calon yang menolak hudud.

Kesan konflik juga jelas tertera di PRK Rompin di mana kerjasama sesama PAS, DAP dan PKR langsung tidak kelihatan pada PRK yang ditandingi calon PAS.

“Hadi tidak boleh dipercayai dan sudah beberapa kali gagal menunaikan janji dan tidak langsung memiliki kredibiliti untuk bercakap bagai pihak DAP dan PKR,” kata Ketua Publisiti DAP, Tony Pua.

Setiausaha Pengurusan DAP, Anthony Loke pula menolak dakwaan Hadi bahawa DAP dan PKR hanya mementingkan sokongan undian, sebaliknya menegaskan bahawa DAP sudah menentang pelaksanaan hudud sejak tahun 1980-an lagi.

Hadi tegasnya, tidak berkelakuan sebagai seorang pemimpin Pakatan Rakyat, (PR).

“Kami cukup kecewa dengan cara dan pemikiran Hadi kebelakangan ini, sehingga ke tahap beliau secara dasarnya meminta rakyat tidak mengundi menyokong Wan Azizah di Permatang Pauh. Ia bukan semangat PR,” kata Loke.

Bulan lalu, DAP memutuskan hubungan dengan Hadi selepas PAS Kelantan meluluskan pindaan penting Kod Enekmen Jenayah Syariah II yang membolehkan pelaksanaan hudud di negeri itu.

Konflik isu hudud dilihat sebagai ancaman yang mampu mengulangi kegagalan pakatan pembangkang sepertimana yang berlaku pada Barisan Alternatif, manakala Lim Kit Siang pula sudah pun menimbang masa hadapan era selepas PR.

[PANASSS BERAPI!] ... Haji Hadi bikin panas... hormat keputusan PAS Permatang Pauh nak boikot PKR

[PANASSS BERAPI!] ... Haji Hadi bikin panas... hormat keputusan PAS Permatang Pauh nak boikot PKR

Melompat lagi pemimpin-pemimpin PAS pro Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (Anwarinas) selepas presiden parti Islam itu merestui pendirian PAS Permatang Pauh yang akan memboikot kempen PKR dalam pilihan raya kecil Permatang Pauh atas alasan parti itu menolak undang-undang jenayah Islam atau hudud.
PAS Permatang Pauh sebelum ini mendapat mandat lebih 400 ahli akar umbi dalam mesyuarat kawasan untuk menuntut PKR menarik balik kenyataan menolak hudud dan memohon maaf kepada Haji Hadi.
Sungguhpun merestui keputusan PAS Permatang Pauh itu, kata Haji Hadi PAS kekal dalam pakatan pembangkang.
Katanya PAS masih teguh berada dalam Pakatan Rakyat (PR) walaupun parti itu tidak sependapat dalam beberapa perkara dengan PKR dan DAP.
"Kita masih dalam PR dan saya menghormati penyokong PAS di Permatang Pauh," katanya dalam sidang media selepas program Bicara Minda di Shah Alam pada petang Rabu.
"Memanglah hudud, bagi orang Islam wajib," ketika diminta mengulas kenyataan Ketua Urusan Ulama, PAS Kawasan Permatang Pauh, Ustaz Badrul Abdul Rahman pada Selasa yang berkata haram dan berdosa mengundi calon yang menolak hudud?.
Memperincikan dengan lebih lanjut, Haji Hadi berkata beliau bersetuju dengan kenyataan tersebut.
?"Betullah tidak boleh," katanya.
Terdahulu, Ustaz Badrul berkata, hujahnya berkenaan haram mengundi calon menolak hukum hudud adalah bertepatan dengan maksud Surah an-Nisa ayat 85 .
"Oleh itu, membantah dan mempertikaikan hudud akan merosakkan akidah umat Islam," katanya.
Sementara itu, PKR dilaporkan akan meneruskan perbincangan dengan PAS dan optimis kedua-dua parti itu akan mencapai kata sepakat untuk bekerjasama dalam kempen di Permatang Pauh.
Pengerusi PKR Pulau Pinang Datuk Mansor Othman berkata kesemua peringkat kedua-dua parti itu akan meneruskan perbincangan untuk menyelesaikan isu ini sebelum hari penamaan calon Sabtu ini.
Sambil mengakui wujud ketidakpuasan hati di kalangan anggota PAS, beliau yakin anggota parti itu akan menyokong calon PKR yang akan diumumkan kelak.
"Saya tidak berasa benda (perkara) ini akan berpanjangan dan sebaliknya saya yakin PAS akan beri sokongan penuh kepada PKR," katanya kepada pemberita selepas melancarkan Pusat Media PKR di Bangunan Yayasan Aman.
Katanya, DAP dan PAS bersetuju memberi laluan dan mereka akan menyokong calon PKR untuk bertanding di kawasan ini.
Sebelum ini Yang Dipertua PAS Permatang Pauh, Omar Hassan bertegas supaya PKR menarik balik kenyataan tidak menyokong rang undang-undang persendirian berkaitan hudud jika mahukan sokongan PAS.
Sementara itu, Mansor yang juga pengarah pilihan raya kecil Permatang Pauh berkata PKR akan mengumumkan calonnya pada 24 April ini di Seberang Perai Arena.
Katanya, kesemua barisan kepimpinan PKR, PAS dan DAP akan hadir semasa pengumuman calon nanti.
PRK Parlimen Permatang Pauh diadakan berikutan keputusan Lembaga Pengampunan menolak petisyen pengampunan diraja yang dipohon anggota Parlimen kawasan itu Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim melalui anggota keluarganya, sekali gus menyebabkan Anwar hilang kelayakan sebagai wakil rakyat.
Penamaan calon bagi PRK itu pada 25 April dan pengundian 7 Mei.

Recently on Sunday morning, Nicholas was assigned to cover the demo by Taman Medan residents against a new charismatic church in their neighbourhood.
“The sheer stupidity of those protesting” is Nicholas’ opinion about the group’s grouses against the big cross nailed on the church’s facade.
He then asked the Malay protesters, “Who gives you the right to claim this land as Muslim land?”

[ALAHAI AZMIN, DEMI POPULARITY DAN UNDI, HILANG KREDIBILITI SEBAGAI SEORANG MB]. ... CILI KASI TARUK! AZMIN ALI MEMPERTAHANKAN GEREJA YANG TAKDE LESEN DAN PERMIT?

Sejak dari semalam Azmin Ali, the MB Selangor dok belasah para demonstran di Taman Medan kerana membuat protes terhadap lambang gereja, aku tak cakap apa pun sebab aku rasa benda ni kecik je dan kita memang telah dilatih dari kecil untuk hormati agama orang lain. Rujuk surah Al-Kafirun.

Namun keghairahan Azmin Ali si MB yang masih meletakkan seorang banduan sebagai penasihat negeri Selangor membuatkan aku sedikit hairan. Masa kalimah Allah dia tak cakap apa pun, bila bab gereja dia bukan main kecam sana sini.

Alih-alih MBPJ kata gereja ini takde LESEN dan Permit dan tak pernah memohon lesen mahupun permit. Errkkk, apa ni MIN? Kau ni MB bang, takkan perkara asas kau tak tahu? Takkan suka-suka je sesiapa pun nak buat gereja macam tu aje? Lagipun ini kawasan orang melayu, ibarat kata kita masuk kampung cina dan buat surau besar-besar dengan pembesar suara kan? Marah tak mereka?

Ini bukan hasutan ok, ini cuma pertanyaan sahaja, kenapa MB Selangor boleh melompat akan perkara yang dia belum siasat? Takkan la nak kejar populariti sampai dah lupa nak check the truth brader? Ku tu MB tau? Ketua sebuah negeri...ish, aku musykil la dengan kau ni Azmin...

[BONGKAR! ] ... Gereja Taman Medan Tiada Lesen Dan Tidak Pernah Mohon Permit – MBPJ

[BONGKAR! ] ... Gereja Taman Medan Tiada Lesen Dan Tidak Pernah Mohon Permit – MBPJ


Para pegawai Majlis Bandaraya Petaling Jaya telah mengklasifikasikan gereja di Taman Medan sebagai tidak sah kerana ia beroperasi tanpa lesen dan tidak pernah menghantar permohonan bertulis untuk beroperasi sebagai tempat ibadat.
Portal berita The Star Online melaporkan bahawa Pegawai Perhubungan Awam MBPJ Zainun Zakaria berkata pemeriksaan data lesen selama tiga jam menunjukkan bahawa premis rumah kedai yang dijadikan sebagai gereja itu ‘tidak mempunyai lesen untuk dijadikan tempat ibadat’.
Data juga menunjukkan bahawa gereja yang mencetuskan kontroversi di Metro Square PJS2B/3 itu tidak mempunyai permit untuk menaikkan tanda salib di premis berkenaan.
Pada Ahad lalu, sekumpulan 50 orang penduduk telah berkumpul di luar premis tersebut untuk memprotes tanda salib yang telah dipasang dan mendesak agar menurunkannya.
Zainun berkata gereja itu perlu membuat permohonan bertulis untuk mendapatkan lesen.
“Premis rumah kedai yang ditukar menjadi tempat ibadat atau pusat meditasi perlu patuh pada Akta 133 Seksyen 70(12) dan permohonan bertulis bersama perincian aktiviti perlu dihantar untuk mendapat kelulusan.
“Pihak kami memerlukan pematuhan ini demi keselamatan orang yang menggunakan bangunan tersebut,” jelasnya.
Tambahnya, semua rumah ibadat yang mahu memasang logo atau simbol pada bangunan perlu mematuhi peraturan dan mendapat permit daripada pihak majlis bandaraya.
“Ini termasuklah lambang bunga teratai, salib atau lain-lain. Semuanya memerlukan permit majlis bandaraya,” ujar Zainun.
Para pegawai MBPJ telah mengunjungi premis rumah kedai tersebut semalam untuk menemui wakilnya namun tiada siapa berada di lokasi.

[PITY ON YOU NAJIB! YOU'VE BEEN HOODWINKED BY THE STAR AGAIN AND AGAIN] ... J-Star reporter @ Taman Medan: “Who gives you the right to claim this land as Muslim land?”


Reporters are supposed to be neutral and objective. In the Nest of Evangelistas, however, some of them clearly take sides, and are confrontational and provocative instead.
The J-Star reporter Nicholas Cheng came close to being attacked by the group of angry demonstrators at the Taman Medan church in Petaling Jaya.

www_youtube_com_watch_v=0zW1rfqrWWA

Poor Christian reporter … having to live among the “intolerant” and “mindless”

I’m hardly surprised that Nicholas feared being beaten up, given his Dapster attitude. After all, he describes “the kind of Malaysia we live in [as] intolerant, mindless and sometimes unlivable”.
Nicholas furthermore characterized the Taman Medan protesters as possessing “sheer stupidity”.
sheer stupidity Nicholas Cheng

“the sheer stupidity of those protesting” – Nicholas Cheng, J-Star reporter

intolerant Nicholas Cheng
His mocking putdown is typically one of a piece with the J-Star seniors who believe that certain communities in the country – i.e. those who voted to retain the status quo, are “stupid” – and those who fail to meet the paper’s ‘Moderation’ standards must be morons and “race-obsessed ignoramuses“.


.
I’m not really surprised either to learn that Nicholas is a Christian. After all, like I’ve said many times before, the EvangeliSTAR editorial floor is teeming with Christians.

“How will a cross turn your son into a Christian?”

According to the J-Star reporter’s own account of events SHARED in Facebook, there were only two journos covering the anti-cross protest – himself and a woman colleague from Sinar Harian.
Nicholas said in his FB posting (see screen capture above) that the protestors were angry because he had asked them the following questions:
  • “What authority do you have to tell someone else to not have a church here?”
    .
  • “Who gives you the right to claim this land as Muslim land?”
    .
  • “How will a cross turn your son into a Christian?”
Nicholas complained that the enraged Malays grabbed him by the shirt and spoke to him “in a threatening manner”. He even feared that they would beat him up or do worse.

Sneaky Star pulls ‘urban’ tsunami trick again

Taman Medan is a predominantly Malay area but The J-Star would like its readers to believe that the Muslim residents there have “mixed feelings” about the church.
The vehemence of the anti-cricifix protest and its accompanying social media storm suggest on the contrary that many, many more Malays are feeling angry rather than sanguine about the new shoplot church popping up.
snake
MACAM ULAR
The MCA paper’s gambit is quite like how its editors had once been such eager beavers earnestly insisting that GE13 was an “urban” tsunami rather than a Chinese one.
Here and now, the Nest of Evangelistas is in denial that the Taman Medan Malays are disturbed and even outraged by the cross on the church. The J-Star prefers to peddle an alternative story that the residents are merely ambivalent.

Kalau tak putar, mereka bukan evangelista

I’m going to compare between the online copy of the J-Star news and video footage by its Internet TV and demonstrate to you the sneakiness of the EvangeliSTAR.
First, let’s examine the written article copy featuring interviews with Taman Medan residents (screenshot below) with regard to the cross on the shoplot church building. The J-Star report  yesterday is headlined ‘Taman Medan residents have mixed views on church‘.
Click to enlarge
www_thestar_com_my_News_Nation_2015_04_20
Four residents were quoted and their remarks featured in the J-Star report, as per the order below:
(1) Rosnah Mohd Yusof said – according to The J-Star – that she had no problem with the church operating there and that faith was a personal thing. “Everyone has their own beliefs and who are we to deny someone from practising their own religion.”
(2) Mat Tahir Abdul Rahman also pointed out that Malaysia is a multi-racial and multi-religious country, said The J-Star. “As long as they don’t disturb anyone, then I don’t see a problem. Those who are strong in their faith wouldn’t feel challenged by the sight of a cross.”
(3) Juraida Jaffar told The J-Star that most Muslim residents objected to the church. “We are afraid that our people will be influenced by their teachings. This is a Muslim area and the church doesn’t belong here. We strongly object to the church being here.”
She added that they would continue to demonstrate against the church if it continued operating there, said The J-Star.
(4) Asmadi Sulaiman said that the residents had objected to the church as it had started operating without informing anyone of its intentions, according to The J-Star.
“Most of the residents here are Muslims, so their views have to be taken into account.”
Asmadi said he personally had no problems with the church, according to The J-Star. However, he objects those who tried to propagate their religion through children. “My child who is only eight once brought home a pamphlet propagating another religion. I am really against that.”
Taman Medan anti-church protest

“No problem” smoke and mirrors

A total of four residents were quoted by The J-Star for its story by Rashvinjeet S. Bedi. In summary, according to the MCA newspaper, the Taman Medan residents had said:
(1) No problem, said Rosnah, 50, who is a manager at a fast food outlet
(2) No problem, said Mat Tahir, 60, who is a van driver
(3) Strongly object, said Juraida, 48, who is a housewife
(4) No problem but don’t evangelize the children, said Asmadi, 37 (occupation not stated)
Three out of the four Malay residents quoted by the J-Star apparently said they have “no problem” with the church and its cross in their neighbourhood. All is good.
That’s how the MCA-owned paper chose to deliberately frame the situation for its readers – “no problem lah with the church and its cross” – despite the mini pandemonium which broke out at the venue.
Now let’s turn our attention to the 4-minute 40-seconds video below.

Video edited by J-Star but you can still catch fragments of the reporter’s leading questions

Chronological order in which the interviewees appeared in this J-Star Internet-TV clip
(1) Juraida – “memang bantah sekuat-kuatnya lah”
(2) Rosnah – “Tak ada apa-apa masalah”
(3) Zarin – “kita tak paham sangat” … “Bagi saya tak ada masalah”
(4) Richard – “This is very uncalled for”
(5) Asmadi – “benda ini membangkitkab kemarahan orang yang dekat sini” … “Mesti you kena bagitau” … “Masalah you terus buat”
(6) Vimala: “Kita tak ada masalah” [This Indian woman is referring to the practice of her religion – presumably Hinduism – which has not been disturbed]
(7) Mat Tahir: “Kalau dia punya orang dia saja, dia nak mempraktikkan agama dia, tak ada masalah lah.”
(8) Jalil: “Minta diturunkan dengan segera.”

Soooo vely sneaky, J-Star musang berbulu ayam

Comparing the ‘print’ version with the broadcast version

The J-Star report has been tweaked into pro-Christian propaganda, i.e. positive outlook on the church. A close comparison between the two versions – Rashvinjeet’s written copy and Nicholas’ broadcast reporting – shows where the paper has been a sly fox.
To recap, the ‘print’ copy of the story features four interviewees while leaving out another four (the Chinese man, the Indian woman and two Malay men) who appeared in the video.
The J-Star (written) report uploaded online starts with positive quotes from these two residents, Rosnah and Mat Tahir, who both ostensibly said “No problem” with regard to having the church around – well, at least according to the MCA Gubnting dalam Lipatan punya cerita lah.
The video footage places Mat Tahir as the seventh person to be interviewed. Yet the ‘print’ article bumps him up to No.2 in sequence, i.e. the second interviewee to be quoted. Your guess is as good as mine as to why.
Mat Tahir

Missing bits (I)

Mat Tahir, after some prodding from the broadcast journalist (Nicholas) mentioned that he does not mind the presence of the church. Nonetheless his response contained several caveats which the print journalist (Rashvinjeet) conveniently omitted when he wrote his story.
Mat Tahir had said, “Jangan kacau orang lain. Jangan dia kempen orang lain untuk masuk dia. Maksud kalau dia kempen orang Islam untuk masuk ke Kristian, itu satu salah lah juga. Kalau dia punya orang dia saja, dia nak mempraktikkan agama dia, tak ada masalah lah.”
The upshot is that Mat Tahir may be agreeable to the church but only on condition that the Christians do not attempt to proselytize to the Malays. The J-Star article failed to mention this salient caveat.
Asmadi

Missing bits (II)

The part where Asmadi said, “Jadi benda ini [penubuhan gereja] membangkitkan kemarahan orang yang dekat sini” is not mentioned in the J-Star ‘print’ copy.
On the other hand, the article quotes him as saying he personally had no problems with the church. This part [“tak ada masalah”] of his statement is not shown/missing from the video footage uploaded to the J-Star‘s Internet TV.
Mahu turunkan salib

Shaping reader perception

The divergences between broadcast (film) and print versions detailed above are subtle but it is nonetheless the editor’s prerogative as to how he wishes to cast his narrative of the event.
If Utusan is constantly accused as being biased towards Umno and the Malay Muslims, then it is equally not amiss for us to claim that the J-Star is biased towards DAP and the Chinese Christians.
Out of a total of eight interviews – there may be more or others that ended up on the cutting room floor (we don’t know) – but in any case, the J-Star article employing its editorial discretion only drew on four.
Rosnah
Nevertheless, what’s striking and without any doubt is the J-Star‘s pro-Christian framing. The two excerpts with which the reporter/editor chose to lead off the story are:
Rosnah: (i) no problem with the church operating there, (ii) faith was a personal thing, (iii) who are we to deny someone from practising their own religion
Mat Tahir: (i) Malaysia is a multi-racial and multi-religious country [missing from the video], (ii) no problem if they don’t disturb anyone, (iii) Those who are strong in their faith wouldn’t feel challenged by the sight of a cross
Words nicely wrapped in the Bangsa Malaysia package and tied with a Malaysian Firster ribbon.
What’s the intended impression on the J-Star reader? He reads this article and the first paragraphs convey to him – three out of four Malays have “no problem” with the church.
Gaza1
ABOVE: It was the MALAYS who took part in the pro-Palestine rally

J-Star worthy of Goebbels Award

Some of you may recall a similar sleight of hand in the J-Star‘s coverage of the anti-Israel rally at Dataran Merdeka last August.
The MCA paper reporting on the event had titled their news report, ‘Malaysians of all faiths and races gather to condemn Israel’s actions’ which is far from the truth. It was the Malays and the Muslims mostly who bothered to turn up to stand with Gaza – see my previous article where I’ve compiled dozens of photos of the crowd which was a sea of Malay faces.
“What was glaring was the lack of support from non-Malays”, reported eyewitnessNuraina Samad, the former NST managing editor who’s a prominent blogger.
BELOW: The J-Star was brazenly bluffing when it claimed that Malaysians of “all faiths and races” had gathered to support the Palestinians. It was the MUSLIMSwho participated mainly
Gaza2

J-Star deserves trophy for being so tricky

Apart from the MCA paper’s sneaky misrepresentation in the very first paragraphthat “Malaysians of various faiths and races braved the sweltering heat at Dataran Merdeka” to support the Palestinians, the Nest of Evangelistas also gave the (false) impression that a lot of non-Muslims attended.
Clearly the Stand With Gaza rally had comprised mostly Muslim groups. Video here, see for yourself.
Yet strangely, the J-Star reporter did NOT interview any Muslim group for his story. Instead the very first person the paper interviewed was a representative from the Council of Churches Malaysia’s youth wing! Talk about chutzpah in claiming undeserved credit.
The J-Star Gaza report on the rally totalled 13 paragraphs. Four out of the 13 paragraphs were devoted to what this Christian chap had to say, despite that fact that the rally participants were almost all Muslims – screenshot of the J-Star page below.
And to rub salt into the Muslim wound, the Council of Churches rep going by the un-Malaysian sounding name of ‘Desonny Tuzan’ was prominently highlighted as early as the fourth paragraph of the story.
The deliberately distorted picture painted by the J-Star is for the purpose of elevating the Christians and downgrading the role of the Muslims. The pattern is too obvious to miss. Likewise the paper’s coverage of the protest against the Taman Medan church.
Let’s now compare with how the Malay press reported the anti-church protest.

J-Star‘s transparent Christian agenda

It’s notable that the J-Star’s main interviewees for the story cited above is 60-year-old van driver who is not particularly articulate and did not speak in English as well as a 48-year-old housewife and a 50-year-old manager at a fast food outlet.
Meanwhile the Sinar Harian article when the story first broke quoted Datuk Prof. Abdullah Abu Bakar, Datuk Mat Sah Abu Anas and former Petaling Jaya Selatan Wanita Umno chief Munaliza Hamzah. The Sinar Harian interviewees expressed their views much more strongly than did the J-Star interviewees.
Datuk Mat Sah was quoted by SH as saying, “tolonglah turunkan lambang salib di bangunan itu, hormatlah majoriti komuniti Islam di sini” while Datuk Abdullah said, “pihak mereka juga disarankan untuk menjaga sensitiviti penduduk di sini”. The Wanita Umno (Puan Munaliza) said, “kami berpendapat tak ada keperluan lambang salib dipacakkan di sini”.
The two sets of interviewees – speaking to The J-Star and Sinar Harian – provided a different and contrasting tone.

Sack the MCA!

.
A glance at the some of the related J-Star headlines following up on the Taman Medan brouhaha will reveal the MCA’s backstabbing agenda clear as daylight.
MCA is more DAP than the DAP in going on a warpath over this issue.
The opposition slant of the J-Star stories below only goes to prove conclusively what I’ve been saying all along – that the MCA paper is a Nest of Evangelistas.

Endnote:

(1) Juraida Jaffar: “Kita orang memang sebulat suara memang tak setuju lah church dibuat dekat situ. Memang sebab sini kawasan majoriti Melayu dan India kan. Memang dia orang tak kan setuju. Sebab mungkin ia akan buat macam, ya lah, sekarang ini banyak orang kata pengaruh-pengaruh yang orang kata banyak agama Islam ini dia lari daripada landasan, kan, jadi saya takut anak Melayu kita terikut (cut – editing by The J-Star). Yang mungkin orang yang tak kuat iman itu, mungkin dia terpesong kan. Jadi kita memang tak mau lah, memang orang kata memang bantah sekuat-kuatnya lah. Memang tak dibenarkan the church letak sini.
(2) Rosnah Mohd Yusof: “Itu hati masing-masing lah, kan. Kalau benda tu kalau letak di mana-mana pun kalau hati itu kita nak pergi pun sama aje kan. Tak ada apa-apa masalah, bagi makcik lah. Tak tau lah orang lain kan.”
(3) Zarin Hashim: “Tak tau nak cakap lah benda ni. Pasal kita tak paham sangat kan. Kalau saya satu orang cakap boleh, orang lain cakap tak boleh pun tak guna juga. Bagi saya tak ada masalah.”
(4) Richard Gan: “This is very uncalled for. Sadly lah I believe ah this is not the way we should live lah our society lah. This is not the way.”
(5) Asmadi Sulaiman: “Sebab benda ini sekarang ini macam ini tau. Kita majoriti penduduk kat sini Islam, dan yang India ada lah tapi tak ramai lah, kan. Majoriti Muslim.
Okay, jadi benda ni, you boleh letak sana pun, you tak ada announcement tau. Haar, takde. Sama ada penduduk sini majoriti ada Kristian ke, bersetuju atau tidak, tak ada.
Jadi benda ini membangkitkan kemarahan orang yang dekat sini ya. Sebab biasanya kita walaupun you nak dirikan kuil atau masjid pun, kita akan buat announcement dulu. Sekarang ni tak ada. Mesti you kena bagitau, kena dia bagi announcement dulu. Ini sekarang takde. Masalah you terus buat.
Penduduk kat sini you tengok sekarang majoriti apa, ugama apa kan. Macam sini Singh sendiri pun kat belakang ada buat. Tapi ada announcement. [Lokasi] Dekat Seri Manja. [Kuil] besar juga tapi ada announcement.
Orang tak bantah sebab you bagi tahu dulu – setuju atau tidak, kan. Kita tengok majoriti macam mana, penduduk.”
(6) M. Vimala: “Kita tak ada masalah lah. Semua ada sembahyang kan. Kita tak ada masalah. Tapi dia punya masalah, dia buat apa pun tak tahu. Kenapa dia nak gaduh, kenapa dia buat itu macam, halau, tak tau lah. Kita tak ada masalah lah. Kita semua sembahyang juga, tak ada masalah.”
(7) Mat Tahir Abdul Rahman: “Kalau buat gereja situ, dia punya ugama, dia punya hal lah masing-masing kan. Ugama masing-masing. Kalau dia tak ganggu orang lain punya ugama, tak ada masalah, bagi saya lah.
“Kalau kita kuat pegang agama, takkan lah memesong. Kalau Islam, dia pegang agama Islam sendiri, dia tak akan memesong lah ugama dia. Kalau dia betul-betul berpegang kepada agama Islam sendiri, walaupun gereja di sebelah dia pun, dia tak akan kacau. Betul tak? Bagi pendapat saya dari segi agama Islam lah. Dia tak akan kacau.
“Kita ugama masing-masing, bebas lah kan. Jangan kacau orang lain. Jangan dia kempen orang lain untuk masuk dia. Maksud kalau dia kempen orang Islam untuk masuk ke Kristian, itu satu salah lah juga. Kalau dia punya orang dia saja, dia nak mempraktikkan agama dia, tak ada masalah lah.”
(8) Jalil Abdullah: “Ada orang komplen lah. Ada orang tak mau agama letak palang salib itu. Tak mau itu saja. Minta diturunkan dengan segera. Semalam turun dengan segera lah. Tak ada kecoh apa-apa pun. Tapi pihak polis apapun semalam polis pun ramai.”
