Mahfuz Omar agonises over stupidity in PAS

Recall my two earlier posts, namely:

tuan ibrahim, unlike his pro-umno boss hadi awang, he's more pro pakatan

(a) While Hadi's away, Tuan Ibrahim starts to play (16 July 2017), and

(b) PAS swanks in Permatang Pauh, but sucks in Exco Selangor (25 July 2017).

The former discussed the political proclivity of Tuan Ibrahim, who's now acting as PAS president while Hadi Awang, the Islamic party's president, is away on medical leave (heart operation plus recuperation) as more likely pro Pakatan, thus bad news for Ah Jib Gor and his UMNO mob, wakakaka, unless Hadi Awang gets up from his bed and works hard for his dedak, wakakaka again.

Tuan Ibrahim has also reappointed (note the 're' in 'reappointed') several senior PAS party leaders who were earlier dropped (or removed) from their portfolios by Hadi Awang and his ultra conservative ulama mob.

Tuan Ibrahim has since put them back into key Party positions, hence my post title paraphrasing 'when the cat is away the mouse starts to play', wakakaka.

and it's a PAS fatwa 

The latter, above 2nd referred post, narrated the PAS provocative threat to contest in a PKR's holiest of holies, Permatang Pauh (while still sucking at the Selangor state's udders).

That arrogant threat by PAS VP Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah has invited 'friendly fire' from Mahfuz Omar the PAS MP for Pokok Sena, Kedah.

We read of this in today's MM Online which publishes PAS MP flays own party over plan to contest Permatang Pauh in GE14 (extracts):

KUALA LUMPUR, July 26 — PAS MP Datuk Mahfuz Omar has criticised his party’s leadership over its plan to contest the Permatang Pauh parliamentary seat in the next general election.

He said making such a statement meant as if PAS was interested to contest in all of Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) seats**.

** I'll explain Mahfuz Omar's above phrase shortly

“This is a proud statement by PAS. They [PAS] admit to be an opposition, but they refuse negotiate with opposition parties…cannot compromise and want to grab all seats.

“In the end, voters will be frustrated with PAS because it is starting to show traits like Umno,” Mahfuz was quoted as saying in Sinar Harian.

If this continued, the Pokok Sena MP said he was confident a big chunk of PAS members and supporters will “switch directions”.

But first, let me just point out that Mahfuz, a former VP of PAS but alas no more, has been reported as being estranged from his more conservative party colleagues, and has often sided with Pakatan Harapan.

That of course hasn't endeared him to Hadi Awang and mob. He has also been often seen with fellow Kedahan Mahathir and the latter's Pribumi mob.

Early last month Mahfuz questioned his Islamic Party's moronic but DNA-ed inclined reliance on fear as a campaign factor to obtain votes. He scoffed at PAS Youth chief Muhammad Khalil Abdul Hadi's assertion that non-Muslims in urban areas will vote for PAS because those non-Muslims would support it for fear of being seen as anti-Islam.

Mahfuz said PAS will ruin its chances at the polls if it subscribes to such moronic ideas as fantasised by Muhammad Khalil, who must surely be the biggest moron of all times to think up such a idiotic thought (if it could be ever considered as a 'thought', wakakaka).

Now to explain what Mahfuz meant by '... as if PAS was interested to contest in all of Pakatan Harapan’s (PH) seats.'

Mahfuz told FMT last month that non-Muslims will vote only for a party that sincerely wants to replace the current administration.

Thus they won't be unwilling to vote for PAS precisely because the party had said it would compete for only 80 parliament seats and target 40 for victory.

Mahfuz pointed out that the non-Muslims will thus question why they should vote for PAS if it can't change the UMNO-led government.

He emphasised, “Voters will vote for a party that will be competing for all 222 seats and is confident that it will win at least 112 to form the government. This is not just the case for non-Muslim voters, but Muslim voters as well."

“If they vote for a party that, at the end of the day, will ensure BN stays in power, then they have basically wasted their votes.”

PAS has long dreamed of winning another further 60+ parliamentary seats but which depend on the majority of Chinese in those constituencies supporting the Islamic Party.

We are talking of parliamentary constituencies which have Malay:'Non' ratios of approximately 65:35, which ethnic mix were also of Mahathir's ideal preference.

T'was said that the kuai kuai EC arranged those for Mahathir in days when he was assured of Chinese backing (because those Chinese feared PAS rather than loved a man who told them in 1969 to f**k off with their votes).

The plan served Mahathir quite well in his PM days, when in circumstance where Malay votes were split (between UMNO and PAS or anyone else), say, as in 32.5% in each of those king-making federal constituencies, Mahathir would still sweep those seats under his belt with an assured further 35% from the 'nons'.

Those seats have been eyed hungrily by PAS for a long time and thought to be just an idle dream until Anwar Ibrahim came along before 2008 to form Pakatan Rakyat. Then the DAP-sponsored Chinese support for PAS brought that dream a lot closer to reality.

But sh*t happens and before Chinese support for PAS could be firmly consolidated, more so with Pak Haji Nik Aziz's sad demise, an arrogant Hadi Awang led PAS to its acrimonious separation from Pakatan Rakyat and thus the DAP.

Maybe Hadi Awang didn't think far enough like Mahfuz Omar and the Amanah group, or maybe he couldn't tahan those Chinese and Indians in DAP and PKR, but with that political separation from DAP, t'was bye-bye to PAS' desired and much-lusted-after Chinese support in those juicy 60+ federal constituencies.

Alhamdulillah, Allah Akhbar, we were saved in time from PAS stealthy approach into federal power (with gullible Chinese support, which BTW, is still very gullible today, wakakaka) and subsequent intrusions into our lives.

With his deliberately overt 'friendly fire', Mahfuz Omar is attempting to salvage what little he can, though I think the harm has been irreparably done by PAS vice-president Mohd Amar Nik Abdullah in the latter's provocative threat to contest in Permatang Pauh.

T'was not just a threat per se against PKR's holiest of holies but an obvious demonstration of PAS' arrogance in the very face of PKR's muhibbah show of 'bending backwards' for PAS exco's in Selangor.

It's said Malays can't stand ingratitude and PAS has just demonstrated that. And PAS, please don't bother to look to the 'nons' for sympathy because whatever bad falls upon PAS, we rejoice, indeed, very much to our relief.
