Based on news reports from Malaysiakini, Star and The Malaysian Insider.
Case 1 - 24 March 2010
Star reported Anwar's sodomy trial to continue May 10 (Update).
Another postponement? Now, what did I tell you in my letter to MKINI titled The political assassination of Anwar Ibrahim, where I had written:
The strategy of the anti-Anwar force is probably to drag out the court case for as long as possible so as to prolong the embarrassment and discrediting of Anwar through incremental releases of salacious tidbits for public consumption. Thus I wasn't surprised when the Federal Court postponed the trial recently.
The anti-Anwar force wasn't flinching as some asserted, nor was it giving in to international force as others had fantasised. We may expect more postponements and delays.
The longer the trial, preferably drawn out past 2013, the more dirty laundering in public on Anwar can be done. The objective is to continuously slander, smear and slur Anwar Ibrahim and bring his character into disrepute. The trial will be milked for all its worth and potential to destroy his character, credibility and even charisma.
I concluded with: It may not be the '50 dalil' but more likely is the political assassination of Anwar Ibrahim by a thousand cuts.
Case 2 - 25 March 2010
The Malaysian Insider reported PAS wants amendments to Rukunegara to include ‘Allah’ where:
PAS president Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang told reporters outside Parliament that the government should view the debates on the “Allah” issue in a positive light and make appropriate changes to the Rukunegara to refer to “God” as “Allah”, as Christians and non-Muslims also use the word.
“What is wrong with it, it is an achievement in unity following the ‘Allah’ issue. We should not only change the Rukunegara, we should make it more proactive, and at the same time work towards unity.”
“Christians and other religions have realised the glory of the name ‘Allah’, Lord, God and other words do not have the same meaning.”
We are certainly ahead of Indonesia which has the world’s biggest Muslim population but with only its Pancasila No 1 stating: Ketuhanan (no, not Allah) Yang Maha Esa.
But forget about Indonesia. I’m sure Father Lawrence Andrew of the Catholic Church’s Herald Weekly must be ecstatic with this news. Well, he did ask for it, didn't he? wakakaka.
Hallelujah or should I say instead Alhamdulillah?
Case 3 - 24 March 2010
Malaysiakini - 'IGP Musa lied about his law degree'.
According to my uncle, some years ago there was a rather distinguished looking public servant (very elegant, dressed a la haute couture) who held himself extremely well in high circles and was an erudite orator.
Many then had no doubt that he would one day be the Chief Sec to the government (the No 1 public servant), but alas, all came unstuck when it was discovered (someone snitched on him) he didn’t have a PhD though he was known/addressed for years as Doctor So & So.
Unc heard he desperately defended himself by arguing he didn't claim to be a Doctor and that it had been others who called him that (though he didn’t correct those people, and had in fact signed letters/papers with his signature block indicating his 'PhD').
It's all the more sad when he was undoubtedly a very able public servant. My Uncle has never stop wondering why he did such a silly thing? Mind you, I know of a couple of very capable Aussies who did just the very same 'crime'.
It was an unmitigated disaster for 'Dr' Elegant's reputation and career. I hope the same consequences befall upon the current IGP wakakaka.
