Old pirates, yes, they rob i,
Sold i to the merchant ships,
Minutes after they took i
From the bottomless pit.
But my hand was made strong
By the ‘and of the almighty.
We forward in this generation
Triumphantly.
Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom? –
’cause all i ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our minds.
Have no fear for atomic energy,
’cause none of them can stop the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand aside and look? ooh!
Some say it’s just a part of it:
We’ve got to fulfil the book.

Won’t you help to sing
These songs of freedom? –
’cause all i ever have:
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs;
Redemption songs.

Emancipate yourselves from mental slavery;
None but ourselves can free our mind.
Wo! have no fear for atomic energy,
’cause none of them-a can-a stop-a the time.
How long shall they kill our prophets,
While we stand

Is there any Redemption for the Dayak’s?

How long should we live in this Mental Slavery before we could Free Our Mind?

How to emancipate our self?

How long should they KILL or ROB our freedom?while we stand aside and look?

60 per cent funding ‘diverted’

MACC exposes abuse, flaw in spending of allocations for certain projects in Sarawak
By Jacob Achoi
KUCHING: The Malaysian Anti-Corruption Commission (MACC) Sarawak has uncovered government projects in the state where up to 60 per cent of their funding were diverted elsewhere.This startling finding was revealed by MACC deputy chief commissioner (prevention) Datuk Zakaria Jaffar here yesterday, but he did not divulge the extent of such abuses.

“Based on the investigations the Sarawak MACC carried out on specific and real cases (projects), only about 40 per cent of the allocations were spent while the remaining 60 per cent is ‘bocor’ (leaked out),” he said.He said this at a press conference after closing a corruption prevention seminar at a hotel here.

State MACC director Samsiah Abu Bakar and Chief Minister’s Department Human Resource Management Unit principal assistant director Malcolm Yong were among those present. According to Zakaria, the investigations were carried out on some completed projects between 2002 and last year.

Without disclosing where the projects were and the number of projects investigated, he said they included roads, low-cost houses and mosques.Zakaria pointed out that while some projects were poorly completed, there were others that never took-off although payment was made.

“When we talk about development projects in the state, there are many cases of fake claims, whether it involves the officers or the contractors,” Zakaria pointed out.

He also told reporters that there were instances whereby contractors got allocations from members of parliament (MPs) and assemblymen for the same projects.

He explained that a project might cost about RM15,000, but the contractor would bid for that amount from both the MP and the assemblyman, thus the contractor would earn 100 per cent profit.He said the MACC from next year would conduct a seminar for contractors and also MPs and assemblymen.

He suggested that the Sarawak MACC hold such seminars with the state elected representatives, both MPs and assemblymen next year, on allocation for development projects.Zakaria also urged the public to help MACC fight corruption, adding that the commission could not fight graft all alone.

He said MACC would embark on education to inform the public the importance of their role to help fight graft.Samsiah, when asked at the press conference whether the state MACC was also investigating ‘high profile’ cases, replied: “Just wait.”She also said the seminar with the elected representatives from the state would be held from next year.Yong, meanwhile, pointed out that the state had received a clean bill of financial health from the auditor-general for seven consecutive years. He said even though there were projects that did not meet the specifications and criteria, the overall picture of the state development projects, both federal and state projects, were completed satisfactorily.

Well,what can we say?They are just PIRATES..What will MACC do next?To bring these PIRATES to Court Of Justice?Oh ya,i forgot,the King Of Pirates is our Beloved “Thief Minister”..No worries then,there is 2 Sets of Law.The Law for the Elitist and the Civil Law for the ordinary citizen.This is what happen when we VOTES for CORRUPT LEADERS with CORRUPT MENTALITY with CORRUPT PRACTICE and of course this is CORRUPT GOVERNMENT!!!!!!!!!!!

Pakatan Rakyat and the Making of a Two Party System

Keynote address by Anwar Ibrahim at IKD Symposium on 21 November 2009.

It is a great honour to stand before you to talk about what can be described as a revolution in the collective consciousness of this nation. Last March, by the stroke of the pen, the people of Malaysia shattered all of the preconceived notions that denied the possibility of political change. In place of these old assumptions a new memory of our nation’s heritage and the self-image of its people has emerged.

Until now many of our elected representatives have failed to uphold the mantle of public office. Their interest has been an exercise in greed and avarice and not what Vaclav Havel described as a heightened responsibility for the moral state of society, and to seek out the best in that society and to develop and strengthen it. For it is only with leaders of such caliber that we can expect a government that is fair and abides by the Rules of Law, outlined in a Constitution that grants legitimacy to the very existence of that government. Anything short of this would be an injustice that approaches tyranny.

We had been weaned for many years on the notion that submissiveness and frailty were a prerequisite for the stability of the nation. Our diverse ethnic makeup, rather than an asset, was treated as a powder keg that could be ignited by the slightest spark. Economic development was not compatible with the freedoms that have been established in other democratic nations. On the contrary Malaysian democracy would be circumscribed by profoundly un-democratic rules. There was a freedom of speech but only on certain subjects. The freedom to associate was granted, but only with approved license. Due process, a fair and an impartial judiciary were granted only insofar as they did not encroach upon the vested interests of the rich and powerful. These measures were taken unscrupulously in the name of security and peace.

of democracy, there is no monopoly on the principles of political freedom and liberty. The tradition of public discussion can be found across the world such that Tocqueville in his observations on American political culture said that democracy can be seen as part of “the most continuous, ancient and permanent tendency known to history.” What Locke said in the 18th century we can find explicit precursors in the Muslim tradition. Consider the Prophet Muhammad’s Last Sermon in which he asserts the importance of property rights and the sanctity of contracts, women’s rights and racial equality. Remember this was 1400 years ago! The narrative does not stop there. al-Shatibi, the Andalusian legal scholar, articulated more completely the maqasid al-Sharia, the Higher Objectives of the Islamic Law, which sanctify the preservation of religion, life, intellect, family, and wealth; objectives that bear striking resemblance to Enlightenment ideals that would be expounded centuries later.

This is of course all theoretical. Even the Malaysian Constitution talks about equal protection under the law and proposed a system of checks and balances on power. Yet 52 years later, and after nearly 700 amendments to the original text of that document, few would argue that the original spirit of the Constitution remains intact. The upshot is that Malaysia’s experience as a pseudo democracy has been a utter disaster.

A nation blessed with vast wealth and a people with the ability to learn and excel has been left in the lurch by decades of failed policies. Hope in a brighter future has been snuffed out by the blunt instrument of state power and the cancer of corruption. Certainly the thin veneer of success has been made our country appealing to the eye. As far as developing countries go we are far ahead of the pack. But when we look under the hood, as Malaysian citizens must do on a daily basis, we are confronted with myriad contradictions – a crumbling education system, second rate health care, massive shortcomings in public transportation and crime rates which are perpetually on the rise.

It is no surprise when we see recent figures citing nearly 800,000 Malaysians professionals now working abroad.

The idea of a two party system has been talked about ad infinitum since the Spring of last year. The excitement many have expressed over the advent of this new dimension in Malaysian politics might suggest that the mere existence of a viable second party is itself the holy grail of a democratic state. Some might even draw the conclusion that once in power this alternative voice would swiftly rectify the monumental ills that have been heaped upon Malaysian society by the Barisan Nasional.

Letter from the Sarawak rainforest

Filed under: Sarawak Politics — Pengayau @ 5:20 am
Tags: ,

Taken from http://hornbillunleashed.wordpress.com/2009/11/23/4990/#more-4990

By Sim Kwang Yang

THE disturbing news of the rape of Penan schoolgirls by loggers in Sarawak briefly caught national attention. But the flicker of conscience among Malaysians was soon doused by the deluge of reports of power struggles among the high-and-mighty in Malaysian politics.

It is hard to prolong our attention span on the Penans. They are so few in number: 12,000 in all. They mostly live in the remote, almost inaccessible, headwaters of the two greatest waterways in Sarawak, the Rajang and the Baram Rivers, far away from “civilisation”. There, they pursue their way of life: either settled, or so-called “primitive” nomadic.

They are of interest to few, such as the odd anthropologist from the West. Their lives and problems are incomprehensible to their fellow citizens living and working in the Klang Valley. Klang Valley would look, sound, and feel like a different galaxy to a first-time Penan visitor.

The letter


(© b79/sxc.hu)Distant, remote, and even exotic as the Penans may be to us, we are nevertheless connected to them. This link found its way to my desk in the form of a letter written by a Penan man. His wife signed the letter with her thumbprint, which is not unusual in rural Sarawak.

The narrator of the letter is the husband. The letter was addressed to the Chairperson of the Human Rights Commission (Suhakam), and copied to the Health Minister.

The following is my English translation from the original Bahasa Malaysia. The names of individuals and specific locations have been removed to protect the couple and their community:

____________________________________________________________________________________________________

Dear Sir,

Re: Baby ****’s death after birth

I would like to lodge a report that my baby ____ has passed away on 6 July 2007.

Ms ____, who was already ripe in her pregnancy, experienced labour pains on the night of 5 July 2007. She asked the nurse, ____, to open the ______ Clinic to deliver her baby. The nurse did not seem to acknowledge the urgency and we had to wait for 10 minutes.

My wife delivered the baby on the cement staircase of the clinic. During that time, the light was not on.

The baby did not cry during delivery.

The nurse held the baby by the legs, and beat its back to make the baby cry. The nurse was squatting on the cement at that time.

The baby fell from the nurse’s hand and dropped onto the cement floor from a height of half a foot. My brother and I witnessed this.


(© Benjamin Earwicker/sxc.hu)After that, the baby cried for three minutes. The nurse took the baby inside the clinic and my wife could feel the baby move, but it could not suckle milk for the entire day.

We named our baby son ____. He was getting weak. I asked the nurse to send ____ to Marudi, but she said: “No need, we will only send him there if his situation gets worse.”

After sundown on 6 July 2007, the clinic assistant asked the nurse to give oxygen to the baby, but was told: “No need, even if we give, he will die.”

We were left in the dark room. There was not even a kerosene lamp. My wife held the baby in the dark.

____ died on 6 July 2007. Dresser ______ came back to the clinic from Marudi or Miri at noon on 7 July 2007. He didn’t say anything. The dead baby’s case has not been reported, even though the nurse was aware of it.

Pastor ____ buried our son on 7 July 2007. The clinic assistant apologised to us but the nurse did not say anything.

The couple sign off here and the letter ends.

Read between the lines

Those who have ever met or worked with the Penans (myself included) would count them among the nicest — and shyest — people on earth. The word “greed” is not even in their vocabulary. They would not even have a harsh word for people who treat them like trash — though that does not mean anybody should treat them as such.

When you read the letter, you have to fill in the blanks with your imagination. Concentrate on what is not said between the lines. Note that the word “complaint” is not even mentioned once.

Certainly, women who have given difficult births would know how 10 minutes waiting for a lumbering nurse would feel like an eternity.

You also have to imagine the physical toll, the length of time, and the expense borne by the father walking from his settlement to the clinic, and moving his baby from the clinic to Marudi.


Rainforest activist Bruno Manser (left) (© Bruno-Manser-Fonds)I had some misgivings about reproducing the letter here. The many Little Napoleons working in the God-forsaken mountains and forests of Sarawak might want to victimise the couple for causing trouble because of my action. Nobody can hear you cry if you die there in the jungle. I wonder if that is what happened to the rainforest activist Bruno Manser, who was last seen journeying to the Sarawak rainforests in May 2000, and was officially declared missing in March 2005.

Then again, we tend to use high-sounding words in discussing the suffering of the dispossessed, the disenfranchised, and the marginalised among us. Readers could get slogan fatigue.

Though no names are provided, perhaps this letter can give human suffering a personality, a face, a wife, alongside a dead baby who did not have to die. If only I had a photograph of the man with his wife and child! But in their part of the world, a camera might not be a household item.

I was also worried that the original letter may not have been received by Suhakam or the Health Minister (one never knows with Pos Malaysia). When this letter is published by The Nut Graph, perhaps somebody will forward it to these intended recipients.

The death of a Penan baby in the Sarawak rainforest may be no big deal to the rest of the world. But it must have felt like the end of the world for the grieving parents. After all, they are human, too, just like you and me.


A Penan family (© Tom Taylor @ Flickr)

Why they need to be treated this way?Arent they are Human Being like you and me?Or they are just a Monkey from the jungle?Where is the Humanity?The State Government will still denied those Mistreatment of the Penan’s?Is it all of this is just Lies?

“I Have A Dream”

Filed under: Speech — Pengayau @ 3:21 am
Tags: ,

I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.

Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Negro slaves who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.

But one hundred years later, the Negro still is not free. One hundred years later, the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimination. One hundred years later, the Negro lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. One hundred years later, the Negro is still languished in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. And so we’ve come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.

 In a sense we’ve come to our nation’s capital to cash a check. When the architects of our republic wrote the magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence, they were signing a promissory note to which every American was to fall heir. This note was a promise that all men, yes, black men as well as white men, would be guaranteed the “unalienable Rights” of “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” It is obvious today that America has defaulted on this promissory note, insofar as her citizens of color are concerned. Instead of honoring this sacred obligation, America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds.”

But we refuse to believe that the bank of justice is bankrupt. We refuse to believe that there are insufficient funds in the great vaults of opportunity of this nation. And so, we’ve come to cash this check, a check that will give us upon demand the riches of freedom and the security of justice.

We have also come to this hallowed spot to remind America of the fierce urgency of Now. This is no time to engage in the luxury of cooling off or to take the tranquilizing drug of gradualism. Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy. Now is the time to rise from the dark and desolate valley of segregation to the sunlit path of racial justice. Now is the time to lift our nation from the quicksands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.

It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment. This sweltering summer of the Negro’s legitimate discontent will not pass until there is an invigorating autumn of freedom and equality. Nineteen sixty-three is not an end, but a beginning. And those who hope that the Negro needed to blow off steam and will now be content will have a rude awakening if the nation returns to business as usual. And there will be neither rest nor tranquility in America until the Negro is granted his citizenship rights. The whirlwinds of revolt will continue to shake the foundations of our nation until the bright day of justice emerges.

The Road Not Taken

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;
 
Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

This poems has been very inspiring to me personally.Especially when i feel like im almost lost my path in life,when im feeling down and when i feel like this life is just so pathethic.Oh how i wish i could travel both road in my life

I had tried to look down one as far as i could and look for a promising future

Then i took the other and hoping that i had made the right choice because it was the best path that i could choose and perhaps even better than it should

And i wish that i,had made it right,without knowing the way it leads.But i doubt that i could ever came back,to the one that i had choose not

But now i stand up and high,at least for ages,there is no regrets,and it has made all the difference,for i had took the one less traveled by!!

Pilihan raya baru akan diadakan bagi kerusi Dewan Undangan Negeri (DUN) kawasan Kota Siputeh di Kedah selepas kerusi berkenaan diisytihar kosong oleh Mahkamah Tinggi Kuala Lumpur hari ini.

Hakim Datuk Alizatul Khair Osman Khairuddin memutuskan bahawa kerusi itu kosong selepas penyandangnya Datuk Abu Hassan Sarif tidak menghadiri dua persidangan DUN tahun ini.

 Berikutan keputusan Mahkamah Tinggi itu, Abu Hassan akan dihalang daripada menghadiri persidangan DUN esok.Dalam keputusannya, Hakim Alizatul menegaskan bahawa Suruhanjaya Pilihan Raya (SPR) bertindak secara tidak wajar dan keputusan suruhanjaya itu bahawa Abu Hassan masih merupakan wakil rakyat bagi Kota Siputeh dan kerusi DUN itu tidak kosong, perlu dibatalkan.

“Meskipun saya bersetuju bahawa SPR mempunyai kuasa untuk menentukan kekosongan berlaku secara kebetulan, namun saya tidak berpendapat SPR dapat mengatasi kuasa Speaker mengikut Perkara 51 Undang-undang Tubuh Negeri Kedah,” katanya ketika menyampaikan keputusannya pada jam 5.30 petang.Read more here http://www.malaysiakini.com/news/117567

‘Anwar tidak tahu pasal ekonomi’

ade7c3bf7901ab6a0299eef1a3fbc4f6Mantan perdana menteri Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad berkata ketua umum PKR Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim tidak tahu sangat mengenai ekonomi.

“Bercakap memang pandai tetapi pasal ekonomi dia tidak tahu,” katanya.Dr Mahathir memberitahu pemberita ketika ditanya mengenai pelantikan Anwar sebagai penasihat ekonomi kerajaan Selangor dengan bayaran elaun simbolik RM1 sebulan, lapor Bernama.

Dr Mahathir berkata, semasa menjadi menteri kewangan ketika berlaku krisis kewangan, Anwar telah menerima pakai pendekatan Tabung Kewangan Antarabangsa (IMF) yang memburukkan lagi keadaan di negara ini.

Mengenai bayaran elaun RM1 kepada Anwar, beliau berkata : “Jika kita bayar RM1, maka nilai yang kita dapat adalah RM1.”

Sabtu lalu, Menteri Besar Selangor, Tan Sri Abdul Khalid Ibrahim mengumumkan pelantikan Anwar sebagai penasihat ekonomi negeri itu “dengan elaun tetap sebanyak RM1 sebulan”.Abdul Khalid berkata Anwar akan mengambil peranan penasihat seperti Lee Kuan Yew yang menjadi menteri mentor bagi Singapura.

Menurut menteri besar Selangor itu lagi, pelantikan itu dibuat memandangkan Anwar berpengalaman sebagai menteri kewangan dan juga sebagai pengarah dana dan penasihat sebuah bank Islam terbesar di dunia.

Ianya, kata beliau, selari dengan hasrat negeri itu untuk menjadikan Shah Alam sebagai pusat pelaburan dana Islam.

Apa kes pulak Che Det nie?tak habis-habis nak bantai Anwar,dosa apa lah yang besar sangat sampai Che Det tak habis-habis nak kutuk,hina,aib kan Anwar ni.Di sumbat kan dalam penjara sudah,di pukul sampai lebam biji mata sudah,di belasah sampai retak tulang belakang sudah,di telanjang sudah,di pecat sudah,apa lagi yang belum?Kalau betul tidak tahu pasal ekonomi,yang Che Det pegi lantik dia jadi Menteri Kewangan dulu buat ape?Masa Kegawatan Ekonomi  tahun 97-98 dulu bukan main Che Det kutuk,serang dan salahkan si Yahudi George Soros tu.Penyanggak Matawang lah,Spekulator Matawang lah.Tapi yang dalam gambar nie apesal pulak?siap berjabat mesra lagi tue.tak nak pegi maki,hamun,hina,kutuk dia macam yang Che Det cakap dulu?jew-hater-mahathir-and-nazi-george-soros

Dah pencen sekarang nie,sudah lah,umur pun dah “Senja”,entah besok,entah lusa.Semua “Bau Busuk” yang sekarang nie,Che Det punya pasal lah,pasal dulu,Che Det pakar dalam “TUTUP,MENUTUP” nie,sampai kan Si Linggam tu pun Che Det bagi kuasa nak menentukan Perlantikan Ketua Hakim..Memang betul mcm yang Che Det cakap dulu.“Melayu Mudah Lupa”

Taken from http://audie61.wordpress.com/2009/11/16/new-sarawak-party-sars/

300px-Np1Its in the news again. Affendi Jeman protem chairman has sent the applications in for registering Agenda Rakyat Bumiputera Sarawak(ARBS) He was quick to point out to audie61 on the phone that there are indeed certain quarters in Sarawak who opposed the formation of the party.

There are voices who even said,”Ingin.ingin jadi YB tetapi Kacau Daun saja” and a close associate even said that he has heard from various sources that “Affendi is now very indecisive as he is seen wearing two caps now( protem chairman of JPUNS too-Jawatankuasa penaja UMNO Negeri Sarawak.)

audie61 asks Affendi,”Why just Bumiputera only?” The reason being that there are a lot of Chinese mixed ethnic races who feels that they would be deprived of this new political platform.This is the rallying call of Sarawakians at the moment. It was this statement ,”we ,as a “penaja”(promoters) of ARBS,believe only the rakyat of Sarawak have the right to analyse and decide the future of ARBS.

He was tongue tied for a moment but as a politician he wriggled out of it and said that we will AMEND THE CONSTITUTION to suit the people/voters. Mixed parentage constitute to a very largepercentage of the total population of Sarawak and they will determine whether you are able to win the seat or not.

If ARBS is given the legal rights to start a party by ROS they will go on the ground and inform the people of their vision,mission and struggle. Of course we would even try to coax Rayong and Adit if their intentions are similar to us. That was when the brainwaves worked overtime as we spoke on local politics involving SUPP and PRS for the time being. There are no clear cut solutions to problems besetting human beings or parties but it is in the bests interests of the whole TEAM if all is well and solved constructively.

Fancy this-Its just food for thought to the BN Sarawak government in putting together the YB rebels into one camp and let them look after the 4 constituencies. (Dudong,Ngemah,Engkilili and Pelagus) Whats wrong with just one swing of the pen the ROS will register the party on the advice of the Chief Minister.

There has been too much bickering amongst the component parties and even now the Youth Chief of SUPP Sih Hua Tong is being dragged into the picture. It will get ugly as if this virus is not stopped it will escalate out of control.

Nothing concrete on the matter of SARS party being put together just yet. Larry on his part as a very accomodative YB and looking at the bigger picture then has met up with Adit and Johnicol Rayong during the PRS crisis period to lure them into BN/PRS. Stop of shortchanging anyone Dr.Soon would be an appropriate leader for this entity SARS as it will enable SUPP to stop all this nonsensical bickering and infighting between the leaders which has seen the Chinese support waning and SUPP might just be wiped out in the next State elections.

WHY SARS- initally the founding members will be the various YBS names which are Soon,Adit,Rayong and Sng. This is to prevent any arguments on who should lead the party as Dr.Soon will head the party with Adit as Deputy, Rayong as Senior Vice President and Larry as Secretary General. The other positions will be filled by each YB contributing 6 names each which will see a full Supreme Council be put in place when the ROS approves the registration of SARS-Party It will be appropriately be known as Sarawak Alliance Reforms Socialist Party.

The virus will have gone one full circle and now we are more attune to H1N1. It is indeed a solution which the cM might just be considering which we are not aware of. However audie61 have had the benefit of even talking about swapping seats earlier and also a Borneo Party. This might just turn out to be a reality and some smses sent out to various component party members have received very positive responses and they are looking forward to whether it will MATERIALISE.

Nothing is impossible in politics and strange bedfellows have emerged as sleeping under one roof.

Wahh..another Party in the making???Our counterpart in West Malaysia were doing their very best to strengthen their Party but here in Sarawak we “DOING OUR VERY BEST” to set up one Party by another?Previously this guy try to promote and set up UMNO in Sarawak,and then he try with Agenda Rakyat Bumiputra Sarawak(ARBS),Adit with his “Soon to be” Parti Pakatan Rakyat Malaysia(PPRM),and now this guy once again with Sarawak Alliance Reforms Socialist Party.

Well,what can we say,this is a Democratic country,anybody is free to set up his own Party.Democratic or Democrazy??What next??NGO Party as suggested by Our Beloved Pehin Sri?Too much Mosquito Parties will only bring Dengue Fever to us Sarawakians,ermm….i mean Election Fever(Which will seriously cause hallucination,losing sanity and amnesia to the voters)

OPEN LETTER TO DATO’ SERI ANWAR IBRAHIM

 

Sir,

First of all I would like to congratulate you for leading the Pakatan Rakyat in Selangor,Kedah,Kelantan,Pulau Pinang and previously Perak.Under your leadership,we have seen a dramatic Unity within the Opposition Parties namely PAS,PKR and DAP after the March 8 Political Tsunami.

For me this is your second biggest achievement after the Political Tsunami.YES,we the Rakyat know that PAS,PKR and DAP has different Political Ideology but I believe that they have one common goal which is “To Sunk the BN Titanic Ship”.For me there is nothing wrong with that as we in Malaysia has different races and religion.

We had also heard of the so called Merakyatkan Ekonomi in the state of Selangor and Kerajaan Kebajikan in Kelantan.Yes,we were very jeolous with the reforms in those state and we have been longing for it for such a long time as you know that we have been in Malaysia for 46 years but not much difference we can see,have or feel in Sarawak.

Yes,there is development in Sarawak but we don’t think it is worth it for us taking into consideration of the 46 years.We should see,have and feel far much more better than now.The reason is very simple,a bad Governance.We the Dayaks has been long neglected,oppressed and marginalized compare to the other races.This all has been done systematically under the so called Politics of Development.All this issue has been lasted and affected us for so long and we believe now is the best time for us to hope or even have a CHANGED,or else we will remain in this situation forever.

Wawasan 2020?its only 11 years to go Sir but what do we have now?where are we now?Its very sad and pathetics to see what has happens to us.What about our future?What about our next generation?our children?our grandchildren?are they going to be “Pengemis di negeri sendiri?”You must think about it Sir if you really sincere to bring a CHANGED or HARAPAN BARU UNTUK DAYAK for we has been promised promises by promises but take a look at us now?

We the Dayaks especially in the rural areas were very scared of the Government.We has
been intimidated and threaten if we dare to speak against the Government.All we want to do is just to voiced out our dissatisfaction and hope that the Government will take some necessary action to solve our problems for the betterment of the Rakyat and not all out going against the Government.

If we vote against the Government,we will punished by all those projects which were supposed to be given to us will be cancelled and certain areas that known as an opposition supporters will be blacklisted and don’t even dream to has any projects being given.Undi Adalah Rahsia?we don’t think so.the ballot were known to which particular polling station and by that way they know who votes against them and they will be punished.As we know Sir,basic amenities like Roads,Electricity and Water Supply is the very basic fundamental needs that any Government has to give to the Rakyat.We were even denied of it and what else can we ask for?

We are not stupid and so the Government.We vote them because we ant them to work for us and we believe they will.But if they don’t,we will voted them out for which we are the one who vote them in and we can vote them out.We has been punished for this.We being punished for wanted to have a CHANGED.as if they are the Government For Ever And Ever.

To most of our Dayaks,Government mean BN.Opposotion mean PAS,PKR,DAP,SNAP and STAR.Yes,we have our YBs to voice out our dissatisfaction or problems but it seems like most of them were to busy to entertain us and this has made us think that the YBs were elected by us to serve us,and the Government were elected by us to take care of us and the they are the servant of the Rakyat and of course the Rakyat is the Master but it is ironically now.

We are slaves to the Government,we has to obey them eventhough our Land is being robbed from us and given to the Towkeys and Tycoon which were their Cronies.There is a lots of outstanding or pending case in the Court which until now seems to be like no ending and the same thing still happens to us.

Some of our longhouse has been demolished by the government by giving an excuses that we has occupy the State Land and our longhouse is built on State Land.For your information Sir,we have been lived there for ages,from generation to generation,from our forefathers and ancestors.Land is our Heart and Soul Sir.This is the only properties that we have and have been descended from our ancestors.

If it were being taken from us,than we no longer can be called Bumiputra or even worse,we going to be just like the Red Indians in America,Maori in New Zealand and the Aborigines in Australia.We the Dayaks has a “Wish List” dedicated to the Pakatan Rakyat under your stewardship.

To have a good government which is
1.free of corruption
2.free of cronyism
3.free of abused of power
4.to recognized our NCR land and not robbed it from us
5.to give the basic needs such as electricity,roads and water supply to all rural areas
6.to upgrade the basic infrastructure and utilities in the rural areas school
7.to upgrade our living standard
8.to served the rakyat well and not being too busy to enriched themselves and their cronies by oppressing the Rakyat
9.to make us on par with other states or even better in living standards and economically(please bear in mind that Sarawak and Sabah is not one of the states in Malaysia.we are an equal partner with the Federation of Malaya.we had join Federation of Malaya to form the Federation of Malaysia in 1963)
10.to recognized the Dayaks equal participation in the government sectors and also business(we,the Dayaks are equal with the Malays in status as stated in the 20 Point Agreement prior to formation of Malaysia in 1963.but virtually now,no.mybe we can called ourself the 2nd class of bumiputra)

I would like to ask you to explain more about the People Power,NCR Land by Sarawak Land Code Perspectives(Its loopholes),and basic Human Right in your upcoming speech because I believe we,the Dayaks listen to you and believe in you for we also believe that you listen to us.For your information Sir,our Present Leaders were neither Listen or Care about us.

From the Dayak’s Hopes and Dreams,

“Allah”
According to Wikipedia,Allah is the standard Arabic word for God.While the term is best known in the West for its use by Muslims as a reference to God, it is used by Arabic-speakers of all Abrahamic faiths, including Christians and Jews, in reference to “God”.The term was also used by pagan Meccans as a reference to the creator-god, possibly the supreme deity in pre-Islamic Arabia.

The concepts associated with the term Allah (as a deity) differ among the traditions. In pre-Islamic Arabia amongst pagan Arabs, Allah was not considered the sole divinity, having associates and companions, sons and daughters – a concept which Islam thoroughly and resolutely abrogated. In Islam, the name Allah is the supreme and all-comprehensive divine name. All other divine names are believed to refer back to Allah.Allah is unique, the only Deity, creator of the universe and omnipotent.Arab Christians today use terms such as Allāh al-ʼAb “God the Father” to distinguish their usage from Muslim usage.There are both similarities and differences between the concept of God as portrayed in the Qur’an and the Hebrew Bible.

“Muslims”
According to Islamic belief, Allah is the proper name of God,and humble submission to His Will, Divine Ordinances and Commandments is the pivot of the Muslim faith.”He is the only God, creator of the universe, and the judge of humankind”.”He is unique (wahid) and inherently one (ahad), all-merciful and omnipotent.”The Qur’an declares “the reality of Allah, His inaccessible mystery, His various names, and His actions on behalf of His creatures.”

In Islamic tradition, there are 99 Names of God (al-asma al-husna lit. meaning: “The best names”) each of which evoke a distinct characteristic of Allah.All these names refer to Allah, the supreme and all-comprehensive divine name.[Among the 99 names of God, the most famous and most frequent of these names are “the Merciful” (al-rahman) and “the Compassionate” (al-rahim).

Most Muslims use the untranslated Arabic phrase “insha’ Allah” (meaning “God willing”) after references to future events.Muslim discursive piety encourages beginning things with the invocation of “bismillah”(meaning “In the name of God”).

There are certain phrases in praise of God that are favored by Muslims, including “Subhan-Allah” (Holiness be to God), “Alhamdulillah” (Praise be to God), “La-il-la-ha-illa-Allah” (There is no deity but God) and “Allāhu Akbar” (God is great) as a devotional exercise of remembering God (zikr).In a Sufi practice known as zikr Allah (lit. remembrance of God), the Sufi repeats and contemplates on the name Allah or other divine names while controlling his or her breath.

“Others”
Arabic-speakers of all Abrahamic faiths, including Christians and Jews, use the word “Allah” to mean “God”.The Christian Arabs of today have no other word for ‘God’ than ‘Allah’.Even the Arabic-descended Maltese language of Malta, whose population is almost entirely Roman Catholic, uses Alla for ‘God’.Arab Christians for example use terms Allāh al-ʼab,meaning God the father, Allāh al-ibn mean God the son, and Allāh al-rūḥ al-quds,meaning God the Holy Spirit

Arab Christians have used two forms of invocations that were affixed to the beginning of their written works. They adopted the Muslim basm-Allah, and also created their own Trinitized basm-Allah as early as the eight century CE.The Muslim basm-Allah reads: “In the name of God, the Compassionate, the Merciful.” The Trinitized basm-Allah reads: “In the name of Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, One God.” The Syriac, Latin and Greek invocations do not have the words “One God” at the end. This addition was made to emphasize the monotheistic aspect of Trinitian belief and also to make it more palatable to Muslims.

According to Marshall Hodgson, it seems that in the pre-Islamic times, some Arab Christians made pilgrimage to the Kaaba, a pagan temple at that time, honoring Allah there as God the Creator.
