As I have predicted, nothing much happened over the weekend, although there were some moments of life...no, nothing to do with the Pas Muktamar, that was a doozy. I was talking about World Cup. Well, the World Cup over the weekend was something like the Pas Muktamar. The difference is, watching World Cup’s Argentina and South Korea games really brought everything to life. If Anwar Ibrahim wanted to carry out a coup de tat on Pas during the weekend, he could’ve gotten it done hands down as ¾ of the delegates were fast asleep. Of course, the STAR’s Joceline Tan did mention the silence in PAS’ delegates, but I feel that she’s too kind to mention that they were fast asleep.
"Kita khuatir dasar penswastaan ini akan mengulangi apa yang berlaku pada tahun 1980 dan tahun 1990 pada zaman era pemerintahan bekas Perdana Menteri, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad.”
Well said and done to the man who said these words but doesn’t really know where to stick it. It is understandable how much hatred DAP has for Tun Mahathir as they virtually lost every single war-of-words with him, and not to mention Tun always having the last word every time. To crowning glory, which is the final insult to DAP (and PAS), despite DAP and Pas’ claims that Malaysia is never an Islamic country, Malaysia was chosen as the Chairperson of the OIC during the era of Tun Mahathir.
For all the things Tun have fought for globally, he has been branded anti-Semitic. This is very strange as the percentage of Semitic Jews in Israel alone is 21% of the total population and the rest of the Semitic groups are their brethren, the Arabs. We should say, “Nice try” to the non-Semitic Caucasian Jews but please, we are not fooled.
As DAP claims itself as a “democratic” (although socialist) party, they talk much about against the use of Internal Security Act, or ISA. On this issue, Tun Mahathir was condemned again and again. Sometimes it becomes a farce, as Singapore’s PAP (from which DAP is the off-spring) uses the same act of its opponents, but kept mum by DAP. Maybe they were afraid of their Boss, or they might be afraid that something might not reach them if they voice out.
That was something they could never do when Mahathir was in power as he was very protective of the Malays. Of course, Pak Lah’s time was the time of dread nobody wants to remember.
DAP is always ever so ready to jump into matters which they feel will benefit them. Maybe that’s why the DAP is sweating profusely when British forensics expert Professor Dr Peter Vanezis debunked Dr Pornthip’s claims that Teoh Beng Hock was not murdered. Pornthip’s absence and antics might just give them a fright every now and then. Then again, we believe DAP will definitely find the truth in the Teoh Beng Hock case, but they might not accept the truth if it doesn’t go in their direction.
Tun Mahathir brought Malaysia at least 30 years ahead of its time, some people managed to catch up, some got left behind and a few more lost their way. Many Chinese, Malays and Indians benefited from it, and…what have DAP contributed to the modernization of Malaysia? Even with all the complaints in past, we don’t see the Penang DAP government tearing down the Penang Bridge, which they termed as “white elephant” in the past. There has been nothing but hot air blowing from DAP since the independence of Malaysia in 1957, and we shall more hot air blowing from their..errr…head, not just from Tony Pua, but the rest of pakatan as well. I guess they can release their steam by tainting Tun Mahathir in every statement they made, the progress has already been made, and DAP contributed nothing.
