THE ABDUCTION OF PASTOR RAYMOND KOH – AN ACT OF SHEER TERROR!

All over Malaysia, Singapore and several other world destinations, and capitals, Christians gathered offering prayers for a Malaysian Pastor who was abducted in broad daylight on the 13 of February!
And like others, I was in one such gathering!

Pastor Raymond Koh is reported to have been abducted by a group of masked men on Jalan SS4B/10, Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia, less than 100m from a police housing complex.

According to eyewitnesses, those behind the abduction were highly motivated, trained, they wore ski masks, there was an air of competence and confidence, you see in the likes of those highly trained and skilled in such activities!

The episode was even recorded by one of the kidnappers, while another directed traffic?

The case is being investigated under Section 365 of the Penal Code for kidnapping or abducting with intent to secretly and wrongfully confine a person.

Inexplicably, we hear nothing more, as Malaysians and the rest of the world get an overdose of the North Korean dictator’s half-brother Kim Jong-nam assassination and events thereafter, which includes a highly dramatized version of a sweep of KL International Airport 2 (KLIA2)?

This is not all.

I am deeply saddened that this North Korean affair seems mismanaged by Wisma Putra.

North Korea is a rogue state!

We are not!

Since when do real professional diplomats turn challengers in international affairs into a mudslinging affair with terms like “insulting”, “delusional”, “half-truth” and other superlatives, like the same politicians treat Malaysian opposition politicians?

As diplomats, do we not have an higher calling and the need to always carry ourselves with dignity and decorum as the office demands?

Apart from that, the minister has to be wary that he is dealing with a rogue state, so he should be also be careful for his own safety.

Sadly, the conversation among all and sundry is, while the nation gets an overdose of the North Korean affair, we hear absolutely nothing on the Pastor Raymond kidnapping front!

It is also inexplicable why till today, and I stand corrected if wrong, I see not a single leader of our ruling government speaking out against this kidnapping!

And why is that?

What we have seen on the 13 of February 2017, is an act of extreme terrorism on a soft target!

As I analyze this heinous crime, I see three elements here – 1. violence, 2. fear, and 3. intimidation – and at each element the terrorists who carried out the daylight kidnapping of February 13, has met its objectives, to inculcate fear and intimidate peace loving and law abiding Malaysians!

The kidnapping of the Pastor has already gone viral and world leaders and diplomats, are anxiously watching its developments therein, as it will certify whether we are after all, a moderate country and followers of a federal constitution which paved the way for a peaceful transition and independence, from our colonial masters in 1957, or slipping into anarchy engineered by a rogue group, certainly with a political and religious agenda, out to wreck whatever our founding fathers achieved?

This is why I am appealing to dear friends, the no nonsense tolerating Home Affairs Minister and DPM, the competent and passionate Inspector General of Police and his team, who are truly professionals to address and allay the fear and anxiety that has gripped minorities and especially Malaysian Christians, post this violent act of terror, exerted by a team of highly skilled, competent, committed, dedicated, passionate, highly motivated and financed team of actors!

I pray this is not the alpha of a secular nation with laws, and with a proud history of governance entering a period of summary judgments, death squads, kidnappings and terror by a clandestine group of actors/terrorists?

INTERNATIONAL CONSUMER AMBASSADOR DR JACOB GEORGE SAYS – REGISTER & MONITOR SEX OFFENDERS BY GPS MONITORING!

Should sex offenders be monitored post crime and sentence?

This question raises other pertinent questions revolving around all forms of sexual crimes and what is adequate and reasonable to prevent a reoccurring of that heinous crime on others!

As such, I am excited about a study of California conducted on high-risk sex offenders on parole.

The study becomes more relevant in the current debate on a recent controversy emerging from a sexual episode in Canada whether a convicted sex offender who had served his sentence overseas be monitored upon return to Malaysia?

Very interesting study that was in California!

Researchers examined the effectiveness of using GPS to monitor high-risk sex offenders placed on parole in California.

The NIJ-sponsored study included 516 high-risk parolees who had been released from prison between January 2006 and March 2009.

Half of the parolees wore GPS monitoring devices in addition to receiving traditional parole supervision, which involves regular contact by parole agents and weekly sex-offender treatment classes (“GPS group”); the other half received only traditional parole supervision (“traditional group”).

Researchers tracked each parolee for one year following his initial parole date.

I am advised by officials involved in the program that the study involved:

1. An outcome evaluation to assess both the cost of the GPS program and its effectiveness in reducing the criminal behavior of high-risk sex offender parolees.

2. A process evaluation to assess the program’s design and implementation.

3. Where the researchers collected information from the state’s data management system and examined official arrest records, parole supervision records, GPS monitoring data and state cost information.

In addition, they conducted a survey of roughly 1,000 California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation (CDCR) parole officers.

The survey included questions about the GPS monitoring system, caseloads, program staffing and screening of high-risk sex offender parolees.

The researchers found that parolees in the traditional group — those not placed on GPS monitoring — committed new crimes and had their parole revoked more often than did parolees in the GPS group.

In addition, the traditional group returned to custody at a rate 38 percent higher than the GPS group.

The cost analysis showed that in California, monitoring parolees using GPS costs approximately $35.96 a day per person (RM144.00), while the cost of traditional supervision is about $27.45 a day (RM112.00).

The GPS program is more expensive but more effective.

Although the GPS program costs $8.51 more per day than traditional supervision, the GPS approach produced a decrease of 12 percentage points in arrests for any offense (from approximately 26 percent to 14 percent).

In addition, offenders who were monitored using GPS complied with the terms of their parole at higher rates than did offenders on traditional parole.

The cost of California’s GPS monitoring is also certainly lower than the cost of moving parolees to “indefinite civil commitment,” which entails sending sex offenders whose prison sentences are over, but who are believed to be too dangerous to release into the community, directly from confinement in prison to confinement in dedicated institutions.

Such civil confinement programs can cost an average of more than $100,000 a year per person (RM400,000.00) because of the programming that must be provided.

But this must be the way and process forward, that need to be followed by all emerging economies where new forms of terrorism, or crime is skyrocketing, especially sexual crimes which is terror in itself!

And more disgraceful when the offender is allowed to marry their victims which is purely barbaric and pariah!

US BAN – MALAYSIAN OPPOSITION POLITICIANS TOLD MIND YOUR OWN BUSINESS!

Politicians across the globe are a strange lot!

They are also super busy bodies!

Instead of addressing issues that matters on home soil they always prefer to go AWOL and address issues that are the sacred concerns of independent sovereign countries!

This is why I always say most times, the best brains avoid politics as those are for idiots and self-servers?

So I cannot but ask why a certain strand of Malaysian politicians are over reacting to what is happening in the United States?

Yes, why are they reacting to US President Donald Trump’s travel ban on Muslim refugees and immigrants!

First this interim ban does not involve Muslims across the board or Malaysia!

It is true that Trump’s executive order will keep refugees from entering the country for 120 days and immigrants from seven predominantly Muslim nations out for three months.

The countries affected are Iran, Iraq, Syria, Sudan, Libya, Yemen and Somalia.

This is not a surprise if you have been following Trump’s campaign promises to which voters supported resulting in his victory!

However, Trump went further last Sunday, to clarify that the order was not a ban against Muslims but a move that would keep the United States safe from terrorists.

What Malaysians must be careful is do not carried away and indulging in issues that do not concern them basically interfering in the domestic affairs of another sovereign nation!

The right wing swing is taking place across Europe and the chances are great that this narrative will be also be coming out of the rest of Europe?

As for the rally, this can infuriate the present Washington administration as it according to international laws could be construed as meddling in the affairs of the United States.

More importantly, President Trump’s executive order, signed last Friday, had initially invited criticisms and protests but since then the issue has been clarified and only those who have personal, private, fascist, terror supportive views are continuing to flag the issue!

There are far important issues in Malaysia from the increase of pump prices, the shrinking ringgit, escalation of costs of living and services and the bloated under worked civil service to cite just a few!

Saifuddin had also gone on record to state that the said rally should be supported by all Malaysians since it involved the issue of religion and human rights.

Since when have politicians been consistent on such issues?

Why is Saifuddin not protesting why the super religious countries of West Asia, Africa and Asia have not opened their doors to their brethren from these countries?

And why does each of these brethren also not wanting to go to their next door super religious neighbors but only to the West which was considered as the “great Satan?”

Politicians have always been super hypocrites, tunnel visioned, cherry picking and addressing issues that give them a political boost and not addressing without fear or favor all issues that are coming to the table?

So my advice to dear friend, Pakatan Harapan secretariat chief Saifuddin Abdullah who had called for a protest in front of the United States embassy in Kuala Lumpur next Friday, please call it off.

“Now it is important for receiving countries to know who is coming?
Are they coming to settle in, accept the new life and be one of the citizens, or only to create major political, economic, religious and social problems in the future as we see in many countries where they create their own ghettos, insist of having their own laws, constitutions and worst, continue vulgar practices like honor killings and eventually trying to rough ride and create another Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Somalia in the newly adopted country?”

DR JACOB GEORGE – WHY SHOULD AMERICA SAY SORRY FOR PROTECTING HER BORDERS!

Believe me – I have no private or personal agenda!

I am an active social scientist and I have my views!

But, I was at the end of some really stern and bad comments on my last post

‘DR JACOB GEORGE SAYS TRUMP SHOULD DO WHATS BEST FOR AMERICA & AMERICAN INTEREST – SO PISS OFF!”

They were actually not from enemies but from what we would call “friendly fire!”

My school mates and I from time immemorial have an understanding!
We respect each others writings and beliefs. We believe we have the right to express what we feel!

If we really disagree, we will take it out on each other by private message or when we meet for meals or drinks and that is often!

There we have a conversation and enlighten each other. And it ends there.

We are all still great buddies despite the religious and racial backgrounds we come from!

So like I was, the Trump administration is under assault from foreign governments, domestic CEOs, and thousands of protesters across the nation!

But, I am glad and rightly so that the members of the Trump administration were hitting back, stern in their refusal to budge, and were unified in their support of the president’s sweeping executive order that bars refugees and people from seven nations from entering the U.S.

Repeating a phrase first uttered by Trump, top aides to the president denied that the immigration order amounted to a Muslim ban and pointed to the Obama administration for identifying the seven countries included in the order.

Further the Trump team also defended the executive order’s at times botched implementation amid backlash from some lawmakers and Federal Judges blocking the partial immigration order.

Among the more vocal defenders of Trump were top aide Kellyanne Conway, who on Sunday emphasized the importance of having safe borders, suggesting that the small number of people who were inconvenienced by the order was worth it to keep the country safe.

Ms. Conway stated 325,000 people “from overseas came into this country just yesterday through our airports.”

“You’re talking about 300 and some who have been detained or are prevented from gaining access to an aircraft in their home countries,” Conway reiterated over the media in particular on “Fox News Sunday.”

“That’s 1 percent.

And I think in terms of the upside being greater protection of our borders, of our people, it’s a small price to pay.”

As a member of the new administration, she also echoed Trump and insisted the immigration order was not a Muslim ban, even as some Democratic lawmakers have argued the opposite.

“These seven countries, what about the 46 majority-Muslim countries that are not included?”

To me as stated by Conway, it totally undercuts this nonsense that this is a Muslim ban!

I would describe that this is a ban on travel from countries, who have a recent history of training, financing, and exporting and harboring terrorists.

In that sense, I would suggest several other countries to be added on to the list!

I am certain the US State department, the CIA, and the Homeland Security intelligentsia fully well know whom else I am alluding to!
In particular, those ‘who hunt with the hounds and run with the hare types!’

When was the last time we did a mapping on the terrorists attacks carried out so far?

Then there is this unfair attack on Trump when the list of seven countries included in the order actually came from former President Obama’s administration, which it did as per a DHS announcement from February 2016.

Let me add that in February 2016, the Obama administration added Libya, Yemen and Somalia to a list of “countries of concern” with respect to its visa waiver program.

Image may contain: one or more people, people on stage, people standing and outdoor

For your information, Iran, Syria, Iraq and Sudan were already on the list, according to a release from the Department of Homeland Security.

And the fact that stares at you or any right thinking individual is these are countries that have a history of training, harboring, financing, providing assets or subtle clandestine help through proxies, facilitating entry and exit, safe havens for sleeper cells, and exporting terrorists, because “they are not doing anything here” type of excuse!

Even when some, having their citizens fighting on fronts with the enemy in West Asia and in particular Syria!

Now it is important for receiving countries to know who is coming?
Are they coming to settle in, accept the new life and be one of the citizens, or only to create major political, economic, religious and social problems in the future as we see in many countries where they create their own ghettos, insist of having their own laws, constitutions and worst, continue vulgar practices like honor killings and eventually trying to rough ride and create another Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, Libya, Somalia in the newly adopted country?

This was seen in Canada, Australia, the UK, the USA and several countries in Europe!

So as a compromise, why not a moratorium for checks, counter checks, during a period of 90 to 120 days for those from sensitive areas, namely Libya, Syria, Iraq, Iran, Somalia, Sudan  and Yemen?

Look at what has happened in Europe today!

IF there is an election today those sitting in seats of power there, I predict will be out!

This is the new reality going forward – get used to it!
