Bersih Has Never Taken Soros’ Money?

17 11 2016

In a Sinar Harian (SH) article, “Bersih terus berjuang demi rakyat”, SH’s reporter Siti Nursyahidah Abu Bakar interviewed Bersih 2.0 chairman Maria Chin Abdullah and her deputy, Shahrul Aman Mohd Saari regarding Bersih 5.
The reporter’s statement and question, and Maria Chin and Shahrul Aman’s answers under the subject, “Fitnah kitar semula” caught my eyes:
Fitnah kitar semula

Menjelang 19 November, timbul lagi cerita buruk kononnya Bersih mendapat dana daripada jutawan Amerika Syarikat, George Soros. Anda rasa ini sengaja dimainkan untuk menghalang rakyat sertai Bersih 5? – Sinar Harian.

From her statement and how she asked her question, it seems that the reporter is trying to say that it is a lie that Bersih did receive funding from George Soros, calling it a recycled slander; how interesting.
Shahrul answered:

Jika kita lihat rentetan fitnah terhadap Bersih, ia hampir sama seperti himpunan lalu. Malah, fitnah dimainkan juga sering dikitar semula termasuk isu dana Soros. Sedangkan isu ini sudah tutup dan pada 2013, sebuah akhbar telah meminta maaf kepada Bersih.

By using the apology made by a newspaper to Bersih in 2013 to prove his case, Shahrul claimed that the Soros issue was a recycled slander.
And in this article, Maria Chin also denied receiving money from George Soros:

Mengenai tuduhan dapat dana daripada Soros, tunjukkan bukti dalam akaun kami. Apa yang kita buat pada 2014, kita dapat derma RM2.6 juta daripada orang awam.

But the same Maria Chin Abdullah had admitted taking money from NDI and OSI.

And this is what Ambiga has to say about NDI and OSI:

Now, how can Maria Chin deny receiving funds from George Soros when both she and Ambiga confessed that they had received money from both National Democratic Institute (NDI) and Open Society Institute (OSI) which is now known as Open Society Foundation, an organisation established by George Soros?
Maria Chin and Shahrul Aman can use Sinar Harian to lie about Soros to Bersih’s supporters but they cannot cheat those who are clever enough to read and do some research about their activities.
In the case of a newspaper apologising to Bersih as mentioned by Shahrul, NST made the mistake by saying that Bersih was funded by National Endowment for Democracy (NED) and OSI instead of NDI and OSI as admitted by both Ambiga and Maria Chin.
So, NST made no mistake about saying that Bersih had received money from George Soros’s OSI, it is Shahrul who twisted the facts and tried to use this case to lie to everybody about Soros’s fund to Bersih.
It is technically true that Bersih 2.0 was not directly funded by NED, but by receiving money from NDI, they are indirectly taking NED’s money because NDI is also funded by NED for this project.

Instead of lying, Bersih 2.0 must admit that they did receive funding from the US organisations.
Stop lying and spinning stories because if Bersih thinks that it is doing the right thing, it has nothing to hide and lie about.
Even the Russia Today wrote that Soros’s OSI funded Bersih and how the United States assisted the Malaysian opposition during the previous General Election.

YB Nasha Sacked From PAS’s Majlis Syura

Uncle Nasharudin Mat Isa (R) and I (L) during Uncle Nasha’s daughter wedding reception, May 2012.

So, PAS has sacked YB Nasharudin Mat Isa from its Majlis Syura Ulama.

KL Pos reported that the PAS’s Majlis Syura secretary, Datuk Nik Zawawi Nik Salleh said that the decision was made during a meeting on January 13, 2013 which was chaired by the PAS’s Mursyidul Am, Datuk Nik Abdul Aziz Nik Mat.

PAS claimed that YB Nasha went against the party’s rule.

A lot of PAS’s leaders are not happy with Uncle Nasha because Uncle Nasha does not agree with PAS’s un-Islamic ways and ideas.

Well, now I wonder will PAS finally sack Uncle Nasha from the party before the 13th General Election?

Who Will Be Pakatan’s PM; Anwar Or Haji Hadi?

19 11 2012

BERNAMA reported that:

PAS’s president Datuk Seri Haji Abdul Hadi Awang welcomed the suggestion for him to be appointed as the Prime Minister (PM) if the the opposition wins the 13th General Election.

So now some of PAS’s members suggested that Haji Hadi should becomes the PM instead of Anwar Ibrahim!

Do all of the opposition leaders agree with the suggestion?

Now let’s see what did some of them say about it:

Datuk Seri Haji Abdul Hadi Awang (PAS’s President)

“Sometimes, it can be ‘syok’ (a thrill) (to be proposed for PM post) but I ask God that Islam be the winner. After that (I) can be anything, or even die,” he said in his winding-up speech at PAS’ 58th Annual Muktamar (General Assembly), here, Sunday – BERNAMA.

Mohamad Sabu (PAS’s Deputy President)

PAS deputy president Mohamad Sabu, meanwhile, said the party’s central committee had never en­­dorsed Hadi for the post. “(PKR adviser Datuk Seri) Anwar Ibrahim is the chosen one, even if Pakatan has not endorsed his candidacy in black and white,” he said. Mohamad also described the call to nominate Hadi as prime minister as merely Ulama representative Hairun Nizam’s “personal view”. “Even Lim and his son (DAP secretary-general) Guan Eng have agreed that Anwar is the choice. But we do not know what the scenario will be like 100 years from now,” he said – The Star.

Why does the senior PAS leader do not want his party’s president to become the PM?

If the Deputy President of PAS does not support his own party’s president to become the PM, then why should he be in PAS?

Dr. Tan Seng Giaw (DAP Deputy Chairman)

The consensus from all three parties in the Opposition pact was that Anwar was the candidate for prime minister. “So, whether the Ulama wing in PAS says otherwise, it makes no difference,” he said – The Star.

PAS always claims to its supporters that PAS is the strongest party in the Pakatan Rakyat.

Then if they are really the strongest party; why doesn’t their ally party, DAP supports the idea of Haji Hadi as the PM?

Datuk Seri Anwar Ibrahim (Opposition Leader/ de facto of PKR)

Anwar said he would discuss the matter with his Pakatan colleagues.“It’s okay. No problem. We will discuss in a nice manner”, he said and quickly got into his car after launching a convention on national education at Universiti Selangor – The Star.

I think Anwar tried to avoid from answering by quickly getting into his car because Anwar feels that he should be the Prime Minister and not Haji Hadi.

Now that some of PAS’s members had named Haji Hadi as Pakatan Rakyat’s PM, I wonder who else will be named as Pakatan Rakyat’s PM before the 13th General Election?

So, who’s next?





Is PR Trying To Abrogate Article 11 (4)?

6 11 2012

Suara Pakatan Rakyat wrote an article saying that Pakatan Rakyat’s Members of Parliament are going to try to abrogate Article 11 (4) of the Federal Constitution of Malaysia.

Article 11 (4) gives the right to the states and federal government  to control or restrict the propagation of any religious doctrine or belief among Muslims.

This is in line with PKR’s senior leader, Nurul Izzah Anwar’s statement during a forum, ‘Islamic State: Which version; Who’s responsibility?’.

It was jointly organised by a Christianity NGO, OHMSI (Oriental Hearts and Mind Study Institute) and IRF (Islamic Renaissance Front ) at Subang Jaya Full Gospel Church.

Pakatan Rakyat (PR) leaders said that they will not change the Federal Constitution of Malaysia if they win the 13th General Election; so what is happening now?

It seems that, ‘the freedom for the Muslims to convert to other religions’ is what PR wants.

Why are they fighting for this issue?

Article 3 (1) says that Islam is the religion of the Federation.

Does PR wish to change this too?

And what will its ally, PAS says about this when PAS claims to be an Islamic party and claims Umno’s leaders and members as unIslamic?

So far it was reported that PAS’s MPs Khalid Samad and Datuk Dr. Mujahid Yusof Rawa support Nurul Izzah’s statement.

Coming Up Next … Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat!

4 10 2012

PAS leader Mohamad Sabu (4th from left) taking part in the Janji Bersih demonstration, on the night of Merdeka Day, 2012.

Mohamad Sabu or Mat Sabu said that Pakatan Rakyat is going to organise ‘Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat’, to demand the government to comply all the demands made by Bersih, at the Stadium Bukit Jalil on November 3, 2012.

A new demonstration to demand for Bersih agendas?

But PR leaders said that they had nothing to do with Bersih.

So, another demonstration by PR?

The opposition parties really love to organise anti government demonstrations.

How many more demonstrations do they plan to make and who will join them?

PAS, PKR and DAP supporters, I guess …

But, if ‘Himpunan Kebangkitan Rakyat’ is going to be held on November 3, some Muslims will still be in Makkah or Madinah for Hajj.

What will PAS other leaders say about it?

PAS made a huge issue accusing the Prime Minister for making a plan to conduct the 13th General Election during the Hajj season so that PAS members who go for Hajj will not be able to vote.

PAS leaders condemned the PM when actually they were the ones who made the guess of when the 13GE will be held!

So now, are they not Islamic as they accused the PM or are they telling their members not to go for Hajj or are they being unfair to their members for organising such a huge event when some of their members are away?

PAS should dakwah their members to go for Hajj and not to take part in demonstrations.

By the way, will YB Ngeh Koo Ham be saying anything about this (please click here for Ngeh’s comment about peaceful protest)?





An Exciting Day

4 09 2012

Sunday, August 2, 2012 was a very exciting day.

First I attended Uncle Datuk Kamaruddin Mohd Nor’s open house.

I was taking to Uncle  Kamaruddin (L) some political questions.

Uncle Kamaruddin is a politician, he used to be the Pasir Puteh’s assemblyman.

Over there I met Uncle Datuk Rameli Musa and his wife.

My photo with Uncle Rameli Musa (R) and his wife at Uncle Kamaruddin’s house.

I ate very tasty roti jala with curry and my parents said that the nasi dagang Terengganu that was cooked by Uncle Kamaruddin’s daughter, Kak Sumayyah was very, very, very good.

I asked Uncle Kamaruddin about the Janji Bersih’s new flag issue.

He explained that we must love and be proud of our flag and should not change our flag.

We have to understand that there are things that we could change but there are things we should not.

The Americans do not change their flag every time the Democrats or Republicans wins the election; and people of the United Kingdom do not change their Union Jack even if who ever wins the election.

I think that Uncle Kamaruddin is a very good and wise man who loves his country.

I asked him if he will become a candidate in the 13th General Election, he teased me saying that he will if I want him to do so 🙂

Next I went to Uncle Mohd Annuar Salleh’s son’s wedding at Dewan Perdana Keramat.

I (L) and Uncle Mohd Annuar Salleh (R).

I only ate two slices of  sweet water melon because I was too full after eating lots of delicious food at Uncle Kamaruddin’s house.

I met Uncle Nasir Zihni, Uncle Raja Ahmad Aminullah, Uncle Sidek Baba, Uncle Aslam and lots more.

Me (L), Uncle Zih (C) and Uncle Halim (R).

Me (L) and Uncle Raja Ahmad Aminullah (R).

I asked Uncle Sidek Baba questions about politics.

He explained that politicians must do lots of things for the people and the country and take care of the country.

He invited me to his house so that we can have longer discussions 🙂

Ustaz Azhar Idrus, A PAS Candidate for PRU 13?

19 06 2012

PAS’s PRU 13 candidate? Ustaz Azhar Idrus shows his support for PAS.

Ustaz Azhar Idrus now openly supports PAS. 

Here are some of his videos; actually I do not really understand them but I know that he said UMNO is really bad because UMNO do not fight for Islam.

So, will PAS choose him as a candidate in the 13th General Election or PRU 13 since he is very popular?

Or PAS does not want him because he is too popular and even more popular than a lot of PAS leaders?
