The despicable ones you mentioned here are none other than your those coming from ilk, the absolutely corrupt UMNOputras who have blatantly plundered/raped the country for more than 50 years under the guise of race & religion.
But alas, the modern real Malays have finally awoken and ready to reclaim the country from these filty UMNO robbersMahathir still thinks that Malaysian government is a secret-society organization rather than a government which practices democracy and rule of law whereby government is elected by the people for the people rather than by a majority group of people for a selected few. With billions or trillion ringgit spent on education over the five decades, the majority of the major race still fall into his trap to make him real emperor while they talk about royalty, race and religion. People can always make their race proud, their religion proud but there is no need to fight for the race which has eternal life. One subscribes to the teaching of one’s selected religion, and the religious teaching is larger than individual humans.
Was he going to split Malays among themselves? Those Malays in the brace of PAS and PKR are not better those in Umno? Could he really single out Malays in Umno are better than others who are in the opposition? It is real abhorrent to say these in his tirade. Is it seriously a mistake to share ruling power with other races in Malaysia in order to rejuvenate an unimproved country under the mediocre rule of egregiously lousy government?
Suffice it to say, he is going to denigrate opposition in order to gain revival of lost support of Malays. It is real outdated opinion of him to have such a warning to swipe other Malays who have shared different view of him. He is no better than others who called pot the kettle black.The more Mahathir unleashes his racist venom, the more Umno loses. The more Mahathir berates the Malays and insults their intelligence, the more the very Malays that he wants to confuse become aware of all that has gone wrong under his and Umno’s rule. This is nothing but the temper tantrums of a relic from a bygone era who ruled the roost but does not know when to let go graciously. History will portray him very, very harshly.Looks like Mahathir is getting afraid and desperate by the day. Everything he said about ungrateful and unintelligent Malays sounds like those who are clinging on to power and not wanting to let go lest they be brought to open court for all those corruption and stealing of the citizens wealth that they were supposed to look after. Most intelligent Malays have left UMNO and are now fighting the lustful and greedy
Former prime minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad said must use MCA SOI LEK to counter ulama like Nik Aziz progressives who are opposed to conservative values by ulamas (religious scholars) must counter them with religious arguments and not with western arguments Mahathir, another example, how is it that the entire Muslim world beyond Malaysia including the largest Muslim nation, our neighbour Indonesia can accept Christians using Allah to refer to God and Umno cannot? How is it that only Umno goes amok to prevent Christians in Malaysia from praying in Malay and using a Malay Bible when the Bible is available in Arabic (the language of the Koran) and used by Arab Christians? How is it that PAS, the so-called conservative Islamic party can acknowledge that ALLAH is the Arabic Name for GOD that pre-dates Islam and not an exclusive Islamic name to be used only by Muslims? PAS can accept Christians praying in Malay and using a Malay Bible but Umno goes hysterical over this. So, is Umno really DEFENDING Islam or is Umno really ABUSING Islam to terrorise Malays into submission to Umno’s will and culture of fear?We can argue all we want but the mullas only base theris on sunnah and hadis which Mahathir says here is optional. But the UMNO and his Perkasa running dogs criticised him on his hudud belief, he quickly cowed in to say he was not against hudud, but PAS hudud. This man has forked tongue. It is in his watch and support that Islamic Dept. developed into what it is today. Mullas from pondoks sit as authority and overrules even those with Phd in Islam or Quranic studies and speak for god. They judge people in their terms and give fatwas in villages. Mahathir gave them the clout, most media coverage and legitimacy that is responsible for the rots in our faith in Malaysia. We reformed muslims do not use west value in our arguments, it is Mahathir’s poor understanding and his own political exigencies that has cloud his thinking.
Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has called the Malays “ungrateful” and “lacking intelligence”, warning that the greed of a few power-hungry Malays in the opposition would see the country’s dominant race lose its political power.
“If any of these Malay (oppositon) parties win the elections and forms the government, this government would have to follow the dictates of other (races).
“The Malays will no longer hold dominance in the government that they were so willing to share with others,” he said in a special column titled “Suara Hati Mahathir” published inMingguan Malaysia today, the weekend edition of Umno-owned Utusan Malaysia.
In his lengthy tirade against the Malays, the former prime minister expressed sadness that the Malays were now purportedly split into three factions and said that this has resulted in them “begging” for support from the other races.
“It has forced them to beg for support… even from those who have all this time been fighting against efforts to uplift the positions of the Malays and make them equal to the others.
“But this support is not given for free,” he warned.
“Who brought on this disaster? No other than the Malays themselves ― greedy Malays, Malays lacking in intelligence, Malays easily influenced by lust, easily dominated by hatred when agitated,” he continued in typical no-holds-barred fashion.
Dr Mahathir (picture) took pains to remind the Malays of their colonised past in the decades before independence, detailing horror stories of how the British had called them lazy and stupid, enslaving them in their own country.
He said the Malays were only allowed to take on menial labour jobs and were made into drivers and orderlies or clerks and office-boys at most.
“There were assumed to be incapable of holding any responsibility. The Chinese and the Indians were even brought into the country to solve this problem of the Malays being stupid and incompetent,” the veteran politician recalled.
When the Japanese arrived, Dr Mahathir said the Malays even lost their lowly office jobs and were forced to become petty roadside traders selling goods like bananas.
If they failed to bow their heads low when walking by a Japanese soldier, they would be forced to balance large chunks of rocks on their heads and shoulders until they would collapse from dizziness, he said.
“They would be ordered to climb tall coconut trees to get the fruits for these Japanese soldiers. If they failed, they would be slapped and would have to crouch to seek forgiveness,” Dr Mahathir continued.
Many Malays are educated, trained and empowered to helm the highest office. Do not tell us that all the years of uplifting the Malays have been ineffective and wasted? Must all Malays who are qualified and capable join UMNO’s fold? Can’t they work outside of UMNO? No wonder many highly qualified Malay candidates were not recruited and inducted into UMNO all these years. They were feared?
As a highly intelligent person Tun surely understands that history is a dynamic matter, and change is to be expected. Along the way there are bound to be changes to the political landscape, and it should not be unexpected that some gifted leaders from among the millions of Malaysians could emerge to contribute to nation and people. And when that does happen no one should stop them because of political differences.
UMNO cannot pretend to be the only political party capable to run the country. It only shows that those in power, even though they are no more capable, are only interested to preserve and perpetuate their positions to perpetrate their selfish agendas.
Just let the people decide who they want to lead the nation. You cannot belittle the wisdom of the people. Respect and accept the outcome of the election, and retire gracefully if shown the exit door, just as the losers had been doing so all these decades. And that is the essence of democracy.

December 04, 2011KUALA LUMPUR, 4 Dis — Presiden MCA Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek berkata pelabur-pelabur akan meninggalkan Malaysia manakala negara berhadapan dengan ‘kemusnahan diri’ jika hukum hudud dilaksanakan di Malaysia.Beliau melahirkan pandangan terbaru ini ketika polemik mengenai sistem perundangan Islam itu masih berterusan. Dua bulan lalu ketika kepimpinan PAS merayu kepada umum agar diberi peluang untuk melaksanakan hudud di Kelantan sebagai percubaan, Umno pula berkata kini bukan masa yang sesuai untuk berbuat demikian.
Dr Chua (gambar) berkata sistem perundangan itu tidak adil kepada semua pihak khususnya ke atas kaum wanita selain mengenakan hukuman-hukuman kejam yang jelas bercanggah dengan konvensyen antarabangsa.
“Apabila rekod hak asasi kita tidak baik dan hukuman pula dianggap sebagai kejam, kedudukan global Malaysia akan merosot.
“Maka kita akan ada kesukaran untuk menarik pelaburan, malah pelabur-pelabur sedia ada juga kemungkinan keluar,” kata beliau kepada pemberita selepas merasmikan forum mengenai hudud di Wisma MCA di sini.
Bekas menteri kesihatan ini meramalkan bahawa pasaran saham akan jatuh antara 10 hingga 20 peratus jika hukum hudud digubal dan ia juga akan memberi kesan ke atas kewangan pelabur-pelabur tempatan.
“Apabila kesemua sektor ekonomi berhadapan dengan kesan, semua rakyat Malaysia tidak kira agama akan mengalami kesannya,” kata beliau lagi.
Pemimpin MCA itu menambah, sementara pentadbiran Barisan Nasional (BN) tidak sempurna, Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak sekurang-kurangnya ada visi yang jelas bagaimana untuk memperbaiki negara.
Ini bercanggah dengan agenda hudud pembangkang, yang boleh membawa Malaysia ke arah “binasa diri”, tegas Dr Chua.
Timbalan Perdana Menteri Tan Srti Muhyiddin Yassin berkata tindakan Presiden MCA Datuk Dr Chua Soi Lek membangkitkan agenda PAS bagi menubuhkan sebuah negara Islam jika Pakatan Rakyat berkuasa adalah baik bagi “mengingatkan masyarakat Cina” berhubung keputusan mereka.
NONESambil menyifatkan isu berkenaan bukan satu perkara baru, Muhyiddin berkata PAS masih menympan hasrat mereka untuk membentuk negara Islam jika berjaya menguasai Putrajaya.
“Sejak daripada dahulu pun PAS tidak pernah mengatakan mereka nak pinda perlembagaan mereka… Itu (membentuk negara Islam) masih ada.
“Jadi baik juga MCA mengingatkan pada masyarakat Cina,” katanya pada sidang media selepas penamaan calon dalam pilihan raya DUN Tenang.

“As Christians, we should fear Islamic theocracy nation more than anything. Why is DAP helping PAS to achieve it?” questioned Lee in a response to DAP supporters on the micro-blogging site.
