Consumerist: Are Political Hawks Rewriting History To Hide Truth?

Friends in Sabah and Sarawak are today angry at the attempt by certain political shenanigans to attempt to rewrite anthropological details about them for a political angle?

In Sarawak, I am certain it would not succeed as long as Uncle Abdul Taib Mahmud is there!

He has positioned that state in firm footing and won the accolades of the masses there in the manner his administration has brought development to the masses!

The race relations factor is also a high positive in Sarawak – a great achievement of the Taib administration, again.

I have always been passionate about history!

Any chance I get to discuss with my relatives and others who were there along with Grandpa George, I will take it.

So it was great meeting them and over traditional ‘Malayalam food and drinks’ – we started many conversations.

And what did we discuss?

They shared their experience and knowledge on the Japanese and British colonial rule in Malaya and the contributions of individuals and political parties therein.

They shared about the brutal periods of the Japanese occupation, life under our colonial masters Britain, issues pertaining to the emergency, a fact that is re-engineered now foolishly!

They spoke of patriots, freedom fighters, opportunist and those who ‘hunted with the hounds and ran with the hares!’

They spoke of those who collaborated with the Japanese and negotiated shamelessly with the British and sucked up to them but today sing different tunes for political expediency?

And surprised at the stupidity of the ones unborn then making political statements as if they were there?

But truth is the truth and can never wash, no matter what spin and multi million ringgit media blitz does or what certain ‘kangaroo Professors’ say as well!

I am sure there is enough documents here and abroad where there is enough evidence to draw conclusions who are the true nationalists and patriots; who are the opportunists and collaborators, then and sing a different song and tune today!

At least 33 people dead, over 80 injured in third major bombing to strike Peshawar in a week.

At least 33 people were killed and over 80 injured after a powerful explosion ripped through Peshawar’s Qissa Khawani Bazaar on Sunday morning—the third such bombing in the city in the past week.

Prime Minister Nawaz Sharif condemned the blast, saying those involved in the deaths of innocents were devoid of humanity and religion. He also said that such barbaric acts of terrorism could not deter the government’s resolve to ensure peace in the country.

Much earlier Egypt was the target!

Sunday’s attack was the third major bombing to strike Peshawar and its suburbs in the past seven days.

Last Sunday a twin suicide attack at a Peshawar church (see above) killed 82 people, triggering countrywide protests by the Christian community and members of the civil society demanding better protection for Pakistan’s minorities.

On Friday, a powerful bomb tore through a bus carrying government employees on the edge of Peshawar, killing 18 people.

Consumerist: When Gated Community Houses And Condominiums Are Broken Into – Who Are The Chief Suspects? A No Brainer!

‘If not as is the case today – anybody can become a guard, take time to monitor an area, pass vital intelligence data on residents coming in and out, and other information on the individuals to third parties and aid and abet robberies?’ – Dr Jacob George

Consumerist: When Gated Community Houses And Condominiums Are Broken Into – Who Are The Chief Suspects? A No Brainer!

It is a fact that there are far too many security firms out there!

It is a fact, that there are far too many security firms out there who have sourced out the entire business for a fee or percentages!

It is a question that must be addressed whether these security companies are run administratively professionally or like all others in Malaysia – run ineffectively, resulting in an abuse of the society’s trust?

A question is also raised who are the guards that are been engaged to be guards in the first place?

Is there a requirement that there should be security and background checks done with the authorities before guards are employed?

If not as is the case today – anybody can become a guard take time to monitor an area, pass vital intelligence data on residents coming in and out, and other information on the individuals to third parties and aid and abet robberies?

How can a gated community in Petaling Jaya be robbed 4 times, where in the last robbery the house that was broken into, all monies, family jewels and the family BMW car – was robbed within 45 minutes the family went to have lunch nearby?

I do not think we need the FBI or Scotland Yard’s finest to come explain the causal links and possibilities here do we, Mr Watson?

Consumerist: Shocking CNN’s Fareed Zakaria Couldn’t Get Someone More Credible To Talk About Moderation?

I have always stated that certain policymakers have that ardent gift of stating one thing in the international fora and doing the very opposite, domestically!

And the timing could not be any better?

Perhaps, Fareed did not know?

So the international community under the guise is been lectured that ‘many of the world’s current problems can be solved if society subscribed to the whole concept of moderation.’

That ‘if society and governments used moderation in their actions and policies, then the country would have a much more just, fair and inclusive society.’

That ‘moderation was based on certain principles and sound values, like justice, sense of fairness, and choosing dialogue over confrontation, and negotiation over conflict.’

Really, I must have missed something the last few years under this speaker watch domestically?

I nearly fell off my seat when I heard among the statements made was this:

‘You don’t marginalize anyone… do not allow the voices of extremism, racism and bigotry drown your voice…’

Perhaps, I was wrong that we have intelligent individuals at CNN, at the US-Asean Business Council, the US Chamber of Commerce and other think tanks and lobbyist groups?
