Consumerist: UN De Facto Recognition Of The Palestinian State Welcome!

Consumerist: UN De Facto Recognition Of The Palestinian State Welcome!

Prayers are answered and the 193-nation U.N. General Assembly yesterday overwhelmingly approved the de facto recognition of the sovereign state of Palestine after Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas called on the world body to issue its long overdue “birth certificate.”

The U.N. victory for the Palestinians was a diplomatic setback for the United States and Israel, which were joined by only a handful of countries in voting against the move to upgrade the Palestinian Authority’s observer status at the United Nations to “non-member state” from “entity,” like the Vatican.

Britain called on the United States to use its influence to help break the long impasse in Israeli-Palestinian peace talks. Washington also called for a revival of direct negotiations.

There were 138 votes in favor, nine against and 41 abstentions. Three countries did not take part in the vote, held on the 65th anniversary of the adoption of U.N. resolution 181 that partitioned Palestine into separate Jewish and Arab states.

Thousands of flag-waving Palestinians in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip set off fireworks and danced in the streets to celebrate the vote.

The assembly approved the upgrade despite threats by the United States and Israel to punish the Palestinians by withholding funds for the West Bank government. U.N. envoys said Israel might not retaliate harshly against the Palestinians over the vote as long as they do not seek to join the International Criminal Court.

If the Palestinians were to join the ICC, they could file complaints with the court accusing Israel of war crimes, crimes against humanity and other serious crimes.

U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton called the vote “unfortunate and counterproductive,” while the Vatican praised the move and called for an internationally guaranteed special status for Jerusalem, something bound to irritate Israel.

Perhaps, the time is right to move forward dispensing all prejudices and hatred of all forms and shapes!

Consumerist: Why Malaysians Have No Respect For Officialdom!

Can you blame Malaysians for having such a poor opinion of those expected to lead by example, be professional, uphold the law which they had taken an oath to uphold?

Is this leadership by example?

This is just one image that raises hundreds of pertinent questions why accountability, good governance, transparency, ethics, justice, fair play and allegations that rogue elements have indeed infiltrated all segments of our administration!

Yet, we pretend that all is indeed well!

Worst, deranged politicians have the audacity to say blasphemously that the ALMIGHTY is in actions that are vile, dishonest, racist, criminal, unethical and wrong!

Consumerist: Suzuki Cup: FIFA And The AFC Should Take Action Against Despicable Behaviour Of Malaysian Football Spectators!

‘Worst, all peace loving and law abiding Malaysians and I now ask, what are we teaching our kids at school that they have come out so vile, so disgusting and so trash!’ CASSA Chief Dr Jacob George

Consumerist: Suzuki Cup: FIFA And The AFC Should Take Action Against Despicable Behavior Of Malaysian Football Spectators!

IT was a despicable behavior and worst, there was no sanctions from our overzealous Malaysian guardians of public and for that matter private morality!

There was no lambasting that such despicable behavior would not be tolerated in the mainstream media either!

There was no official statement from anybody here warning that such behavior would not be tolerated in this age and time!

No warning, no sanction whatsoever!

As IF it was nothing wrong to behave as they did that day!

There are enough examples around the world already the more recent FIFA’s and the English Football Associations clampdown on racism and hooliganism!

There even the Police got involved!

What a difference the way certain jurisdiction handle such despicable and racist issues while in others it is deemed alright by a sick demograph who is guided by a false sense of superiority!

I am now certain FIFA the world football body and the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) would be tasked to look at this rather sickening behavior!

Yes, I am referring to the manner both the football team representing Singapore and their traveling fans at the stadium were left feeling angry and hurt after being labelled “dogs” by Malaysian spectators during their weekend AFF Suzuki Cup win!

And IF some bankrupt self serving Malaysian official needs proof go check out that well distributed and seen video posted on YouTube that shows thousands of Malaysian fans chanting “Singapore itu anjing” (Singapore are dogs) during Sunday’s group game in Kuala Lumpur, when Singapore beat the defending Southeast Asian champions 3-0.

The incident caught on YouTube had been viewed nearly 200,000 times online.
Across the causeway Singapore’s New Paper, described the chant as “vile!”

I had met several Singaporeans since that ‘Black Day’ in Malaysian sports history and frankly, I cannot but be angry as the Singaporeans were our visitors, there were only about 1000 and we had half a stadium full of idiots and racists calling the Singaporeans dogs!

What has happened to the so called Malaysian hospitality?

It is as if Singapore is our arch enemy when the history and relationships are intertwined!

It was utter stupidity that was displayed that day!

And as If the heavens had heard the Singaporean’s prayers Singapore thrashed Malaysia 3 -0!

As a Singaporean stated it is a pity that Malaysia had difficulty even beating dogs in soccer

Worst, all peace loving and law abiding Malaysians and I now ask what are we teaching our kids at school that they have come out so vile, so disgusting and so trash!

Consumerist: Green March Wins Accolades, Admiration And Political Heads Will Roll GE13!

They have won the admiration of all peace loving and low abiding Malaysians!

Their 300 kilometre protest march captured the international wires and ‘Global Green initiatives, ventures and activism!’

Now the movement is about to win hundreds and thousands of volunteers with a website and other activities.

Can they be blamed for addressing these concerns?

Could this have been averted with careful more detailed comprehensive proactive intervention rather than the usual ‘political mantra and knee jerk reactions and administrative blockades’ with utter stupid excuses, a biased, closed mind despite transformation claims and hype?

Would it have helped IF indeed – there was – or – we had a bipartisan approach from our politicians to address these issues rather than the usual divides aided and assisted by a stubborn, aggressive, authoritative response?

Can they be blamed for taking these measures. Their land is being occupied and they feel (rightly or wrongly) that the government is colluding with the predator corporations.

After all it is an issue concerning the health of our future generations!

It is a pity when individuals who are in power because of the votes of ordinary Malaysians forget who their real bosses are!

It boils down to the political arrogance that is being exhibited which the people reject!

Worst, when one forgets that civil society action or people’s power initiatives are on the rise and the voice of the people will eventually triumph over the narrow, selfish agendas of a few who must be now prepared to lose in the next General Elections despite the alleged presence of various forms illegal’s in the electoral roll?

Consumerist: Truth A Causality In Malaysian Politics!

Several of us met this morning over a cuppa to examine recent events that are shaping Malaysian politics and events!

One thing is certain the ground and political allegiance has indeed shifted!

Not because the opposition are doing a great job!

The unanimous decision is that our mainstream politicians, their handlers, spin-masters, advisers (both local and foreign), those tasked to manage public policy and issues have got it wrong!

It is strange that ‘the elephant in the room’ is unseen either intentionally, or by design, or due to residues of arrogance or plain stupidity or a mixture of all which makes it a strong powerful brew!

Whether it is the NFC, the government land sold to politicians and cronies , the hated AES, the re-runs of high powered corruption and abuse, political executive abuse or the strange manipulation and abuse of race relations and religion for political expediency, issues related to the Education Act 1961, Indigenous people’s religious and land rights, air traffic radar failure, airline and passenger safety, basic issues of consumerism – they have got it all wrong!

Our lies and double standards have caught up with us!

How else can one interpret the comments of the EC deputy on foreign election monitors or observers when he himself has been party to similar stints?

How else can you interpret the actions of policymakers ‘chasing out’ and treating Malaysian talents who have served the nation in dedication, sacrifice and commitment with utter contempt on the one breath and in another going away to Australia and the developed world to entice, woo, plead those who had left the nation for greener pastures to return promising ‘heaven and goodies…?’

How else can you interpret monies available for political goodies but the lack of for essential medication in our public hospitals?

How else can you interpret the presence of ‘policymakers and guard keepers’ – individuals who you had respect for once, now after retirement, working with ‘shady characters’ in the private sector?

Have we become a nation of double speak, hypocrisy, double standards, and – where TRUTH HAS BEEN SACRIFICED AT THE ALTARS OF POLITICAL EXPEDIENCY AND PROFITS?
