A Taiwanese ATR-72 TransAsia Airways plane crashed in Xixi village outside the Magong airport in Taiwan’s Penghu archipelago on Wednesday, July 23, 2014.

The ATR 72 turboprop aircraft departed from the southern municipality of Kaohsiung at 17:43 local time (09:43 GMT), but lost contact with controllers at 19:06, CNA said, citing the Civil Aeronautics Administration.

The plane, carrying 58 people, crashed into buildings after a failed attempt to land at Magong airport.

BBC News reported that forty-eight people were killed while another 10 people were injured.

A few empty apartment buildings adjacent to the runway caught fire after the crash.

Officials said that two French nationals were among the dead, and no crew members are thought to have survived.

Five Penghu residents were injured on the ground but by Thursday morning all had been discharged from hospital, the Civil Aeronautics Administration (CAA) said.

Official said visibility at the time of the crash was 1,600m (one mile) and within acceptable standards for landing, despite the stormy weather.

What A Joke, Khalid Samad

Picture1

Above is Khalid Samad’s tweet, posted on July 19th 2014.

The tweet is just so funny that I can’t believe that he wrote it.

Khalid Samad tweeted as if he is so sad that people still call him “Khalid gereja”…

But look at some of the things that he said and done in matters regarding Islam…

He complained that people still call him “Khalid gereja” although he went to more than forty suraus and mosques during Ramadan.

If he visited the suraus and mosques to give his ‘politicized tazkirah,’ it will be just something like his other series of ‘ceramah politik PAS’.

Just like Hannah Yeoh and other non-Muslim DAP and PKR leaders visiting suraus and mosques for political gain and some even gave political tazkirahs.
