Hamas treachery

A SPECIAL MESSAGE
From Mike Evans the founder of the Jerusalem Prayer Team


The wars of the 21st century have a new and very powerful element--the media.  One of the major sponsors of Hamas and its terrorist activities is Qatar.  The oil-rich state is pouring millions of dollars into Hamas's coffers for weapons and equipment.  In return, Hamas is furnishing Al Jazeera, a satellite television network owned by the ruling family of Qatar, with videos showing children killed and injured in what they claim are Israeli attacks.  

In effect, they are creating "terror theater," fighting not on the battlefield, but in the broadcast news.  Millions of people around the world turn to Al Jazeera for news, and they are being fed a steady diet of pro-Hamas propaganda.  Hamas intentionally fires at Israeli forces from schools and hospitals and mosques in hopes that return fire will kill civilians so they can get more footage to show on Al Jazeera.  It is a depraved disregar…

No choice but to let Khalid stay on as MB

Dishonourable of Khalid to cling on to MB post, say DAP leadersBY EILEEN NG Published: 29 July 2014 Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim (right) has defied his party and Pakatan Rakyat partners by refusing to give up the Selangor menteri besar post in favour of Datuk Seri Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail (centre). – The Malaysian Insider file pic, July 29, 2014.Senior DAP leaders have voiced their concerns over Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim’s insistence on remaining in his post as Selangor menteri besar, saying it is inappropriate for him to stay on when he has lost the support of his own party, PKR, and its partners in Pakatan Rakyat. The DAP leaders, who requested anonymity because they were not authorised to speak about this issue, said they were tired of Khalid's "authoritarian" leadership and his insistence on serving out his term in office, especially having known since March that he would be replaced. "It is dishonourable of him to insist on staying despite losing the confide…

Khalid as Menteri Besar

Anwar, time to throw in the towel  | July 27, 2014 With Hadi and Nik Aziz firmly behind Khalid as Menteri Besar, looks like Anwar's been hung out to dry. COMMENT The long spell of drought we are experiencing these past months pretty much mirrors the long spell of drought Anwar’s camp has been experiencing in their many failed attempts to wrest control of the Selangor Menteri Besar’s (MB) post from Tan Sri Khalid Ibrahim. Deftly avoiding the brickbats hurled at him like a Matrix warrior, Khalid has been happily going about his business, keeping his head down while strategically strengthening ties with the Palace and holding quiet talks with his ally, PAS’ president Abdul Hadi Awang, to keep the snarling hounds at bay. Looks like it’s paid off for Khalid as Hadi has made it official he will back Khalid in his bid to retain his post as MB of Malaysia’s richest state. With both Hadi’s and the Sultan’s support, looks like Anwar has been hung out to dry despite jubilantly n…

Ex-chief justice Hamid a liar, racist and extremist - should be charged with SEDITION

Ex-chief justice a liar, racist and extremist, says Guan Eng Published: 23 July 2014 Penang Chief Minister Lim Guan Eng has hit out at a former chief justice for claiming that Islam was under threat in the state, calling the latter a "liar, racist and an extremist". In slammingTun Abdul Hamid Mohamad, Lim said that the state has allocated more funds to Muslims for their activities compared with the previous Barisan Nasional administration. "This ex-CJ has exposed himself to be a racist, an extremist and a liar. He said that we are neglecting Islam but he is blind to fact that we have increased allocations for them. "In fact, we have given more to Muslims than BN ever did, so much so that Gerakan attacked us for giving so much to Muslims. Yet, at the same time, Umno attacks us for neglecting Islam," he said today. He said although Gerakan and Umno were in the BN coalition together, they had been inconsistent in their accusations against the Penang government, p…

‘Allah’ exclusive to Muslims, former home minister tells churches

Don’t create trouble, ‘Allah’ exclusive to Muslims, former home minister tells churchesBY HASBULLAH AWANG CHIK Published: 10 July 2014 Former home minister Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar says the Allah issue has gone through the judicial process and everyone should respect the court's decision. – The Malaysian Insider pic, July 10, 2014.Churches should respect that the word Allah is exclusive to Muslims as it refers to the concept of Allah being the one and only God, said Tan Sri Syed Hamid Albar, the man responsible for barring Catholic weekly, Herald, from using the word in 2009. The former home minister said applying the word Allah in other religions would cause misunderstanding among society. “Before this, the understanding was that the word Allah was for Muslims but after Herald used it (we) issued an order for them not to use it. “For Muslims, it is not just a word but a declaration of faith. When it has gone through the process in court, please respect the decision by the courts,…

Not May 13 looming, but class war among Malays’

‘Not May 13 looming, but class war among Malays’
It has almost been half a century since the May 13 racial riots took place, but some politicians continue to raise its spectre, hoping to spook Malaysians with it.

And the latest being Deputy Prime Minister Muhyiddin Yassin.

Political analyst Khoo Kay Peng (left) said that while a recurrence of such a riot is a "very long shot", he toldMalaysiakini that if a clash does recur, it would not be an ethnic riot.

On the contrary, he warned that it would be an intra-ethnic riot involving the Malays along the lines of class between the haves and have nots.

And if that happens, Khoo said the blame would fall squarely on Umno.

"Post-May 13, many things were done to help the Malay community. We have the New Economic Policy, and Umno has huge control over the administration.

“If the current situation still merits a May 13, the failure will be on Umno for failing to deliver," he said.

As for the 1969 race riots, Umno leaders or those f…

The soup kitchen is no easy street

The soup kitchen is no easy street July 8, 2014 Banning soup kitchens and the homeless from the city centre is akin to opting for image over welfare. Where is your sense of humanity, Ku Nan? A volunteer bravely speaks out.... byIzzati Rahman Working in a soup kitchen is a labour of love. I am not a veteran volunteer, but I have had my fair share of experience at various soup kitchens across Kuala Lumpur since the age of 16. What I have to say is my own humble opinion and not representative of any organisation I have volunteered with. From slicing onions to packing and distributing food, soup kitchen volunteers have never been paid. Most soup kitchens receive monetary aid or food donations from various individuals or corporate sponsors, and food operators. Each soup kitchen has its own distribution locations (sometimes three or four in a night) at the same spot when they are on duty. Volunteers may change, some are regulars, some are not. The faces of those who come for food also may di…

A NATION IN DEEP TROUBLE

A NATION IN DEEP TROUBLE
Selena Tay, FMT Malaysia is a nation with a myriad of problems. While all countries have their own list of national woes, our government is not trying to solve ours but seem to be adding to it instead. Here are just some: 1. After nearly four months, Malaysia Airlines flight MH370 is still missing; 2. A Chinese national fish farm manager kidnapped on May 6 off the coast of Sabah and a Malaysian man kidnapped last month have yet to be rescued; 3. Dengue and tuberculosis epidemics are in full swing; 4. A Malaysian High Commission staff is off to face criminal charges in New Zealand; 5. Baby-dumping, rapes, murders and snatch thefts go on unbated; 6. Drug trafficking, human trafficking, vice and gambling dens are still enjoying a good run; 7. Stupid and racist comments by government ministers (past and present) continue to be made; 8. List of goods to be exempted from GST (Goods & Services Tax) is as yet still undecided; 9. Price hikes continue to plague the …
