NAJIB WAS IMMORTALISED WITH THIS GIGANTIC REPLICA ON TAIPUSAM DAY AT BATU CAVES.
HOW WILL HE RECIPROCATE TOMORROW AT THE TWIN TOWERS?
WILL HE REMEMBER HIS ADVICE TO MADMAN GADDAFI?
Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi should not use violence against protestors who have been on streets for days in a bloody uprising against the regime, said Malaysian Prime Minister Wednesday.
"We believe that he should not use violence," Najib Razak told AFP in Istanbul.
"What is important for us is to take into account the aspirations of people...The system should be legitimate, it has to be based on support of people", he added.

Libyan leader should not use violence, Malaysian PM says
ISTANBUL — Libyan leader Moamer Kadhafi should not use violence against protestors who have been on streets for days in a bloody uprising against the regime, said Malaysian Prime Minister Wednesday.
"We believe that he should not use violence," Najib Razak told AFP in Istanbul.
People are giving "a clear sign of their demand for change and reform" in Arab and north African countries, and governments will have to take heed of that, said the prime minister of the mainly Muslim southeastern Asian country.
"The constitutional and political reforms that would be effective should be able to fulfill the hopes and aspirations of people, particularly the young people", said Razak.
Razak said the change in the region should be peaceful and he called both protestors and government forces to not use violence.
The prime minister said he has no concerns that Malaysia risks of a possible uprising. He said the elections in his country are "quite free and fair" and the government support is in increase.
Libyan embassy staff in Malaysia on Tuesday condemned the "massacre" of anti-government protesters and said they are no longer loyal to embattled leader Kadhafi.
Allow me to put together some thoughts on how to walk your talk:
First you DO what you want US to do. Condemn racism and corruption. There is nothing more powerful and motivating for US the rakyat than observing our “adequately titled leaders” do the actions or behaviors they are requesting from others. Why bastardize 1Malaysia by appointing known felons to head corporations. The arithmetic does not add up. Was Mahatma Gandhi joking when he said, “Become the change you wish to see in the world."
If you design a process like your 1Malaysia, follow it, believe in it and see it through despite Perkasa and Utusan’s attempt to derail it. Why should we get on your multi-million dollars1Malaysia train if your own people attempt to derail it…..and you make no attempt to kick these saboteurs off your 1Malaysia express.
Act as if you are part of the country that UMNO decided you lead, not always just the head of it. Dig in and do actual work, too. People will appreciate that you are personally knowledgeable about the effort needed to get the work done. They will not trust your leadership because you cannot empathise with their aspirations and their fears.
Help people achieve their aspirations that are important to them like free speech, freedom to assemble, as well as the goals you are stuffing down our throats day in and day out about 1Malaysia. It is becoming a distasteful platitude.
Do what you say you're going to do. Don’t make rash promises that you can’t keep. People want to trust you and your leadership.
Ask your cabinet to police themselves. They must provide feedback to each other when they fail to walk their talk. It is not up to the rakyat and the opposition to point out inconsistencies.

Gordon Brown's sister-in-law tackles corruption in Borneo
22 Feb 2011
In a flat above a restaurant inCovent Garden, an investigative reporter called Clare and a tribesman from Borneo covered in tattoos prepare to transmit their daily revolutionary radio broadcast deep into the Borneo jungle.
They make for an unlikely double act - she is a white, middle-aged Englishwoman, and he the proud grandson of a Dayak headhunter who broadcasts under the pseudonym Papa Orang Utan. Their aim is no less outlandish: to expose the alleged corruption of Taib Mahmud, chief minister of the Malaysian state of Sarawak on the island of Borneo 6,500 miles from London, and bring an end to his 30-year rule.
"This is Radio Free Sarawak," begins Papa Orang Utan, donning his headphones to interview a village headman who has been forcibly removed from his land and who, quite remarkably, speaks to them on a mobile phone from the edge of the Borneo rainforest. Clare briefs Papa: "Make sure you ask if he knows that it's chief minister Taib who has stolen their land? And get who he'll be voting for!"
Until now the identity of the "pirates" behind Radio Free Sarawak has been a closely guarded secret - and for good reason. Scandal-plagued Taib, 74, is one of the world's most ruthless and wealthiest men - richer allegedly than the Sultan of Brunei, whose independent country lies alongside - and locals who oppose him can feel the full force of his retribution.
But today is a watershed: the duo have bravely decided to out themselves ahead of the upcoming Sarawak elections, expected in April. Indeed, the Evening Standard can reveal that the mystery Englishwoman who set up Radio Free Sarawak four months ago and who brought out the tattooed tribesman - real name Peter John Jaban - to front her broadcasts is in fact Clare Rewcastle Brown, sister-in-law of former prime minister Gordon Brown.
The last time she was in the public eye was in May 2009 when she published a letter defending the then prime minister's cleaning arrangements in the wake of the expenses scandal. Her piece, "The true story of Gordon Brown, the cleaner and my husband", laid out their "very ordinary shared cleaning arrangements" and explained why The Telegraph's front page "scoop" was groundless.
"My poor husband Andrew," she recalls, "was the face on the front page on the first day of the expenses scandal, which was pretty damn unfair given that Gordon's arrangement with the cleaner was later judged wholly legitimate. The reporters arrived on our doorstep thinking they'd 'got Gordon' but they hadn't done their due diligence and when we presented them with the truth, they didn't want to hear it."
Today she sees less of her husband's older brother, "Gordon and Sarah being mainly up in Scotland", but they are "a close-knit family" and "Gordon is hugely supportive," she says.
Rewcastle Brown, 51, born in Sarawak to British parents in the days before the former British colony was handed over to Malaysia, lived in the region until the age of eight, and she is the author of the hard-hitting Sarawak Report, a hitherto anonymous blog that gets 18,000 hits a day.
"English is still the unifying language in Sarawak and I use my blog and broadcasts to expose the outrageous deforestation which has seen 95 per cent of Sarawak's rainforest cut down and replaced by logging and palm oil plantations which have enriched Taib and his family," she says. "What's more, my investigations indicate some of the Taib family money is right here in London and includes a lucrative property portfolio in the heart of our capital."
Her work, she adds, is also about "giving the 2.5 million oppressed people of Sarawak a choice".
"The leader of the opposition party, a charismatic human rights lawyer called Baru Bian, inspires hope of real change in the upcoming election, but scandalously only one-third of the electorate are registered to vote and the corrupt Malaysian government turn a blind eye because Taib always delivers them Sarawak, their richest state."
She says their decision to go public was prompted by death threats posted to the Sarawak Report website and by the mysterious fatality of her chief whistleblower inAmerica. "Before Christmas, Taib's disaffected US aide Ross Boyert was found dead in a Los Angeles hotel room with a plastic bag around his head. The inquest is still pending but there was a sense that Peter and I could be in danger. Rather than hide, we've decided to come out fighting."
She kicks off her leather boots and laughs. "The irony is that Taib and his people think we're a huge operation but there are just five of us with a couple of laptops and a mixer. Advances in MP3 technology mean that these days shortwave radio is cheap and easy to do. We've been so effective that Taib's people believe we're funded by George Soros, whose foundation funds Radio Free Burma."
Her outfit - started in October from the dining room of her loft in Victoria where she lives "in shabby dilapidation" with Andrew and their two teenage children - costs less than £10,000 a month, she says. Initially she funded it herself but she's since roped in some "better-off friends" who help out "anonymously". "Not Gordon," she hastens to add. "His support is strictly moral!"
Her passionate dedication to a cause 99 per cent of Londoners have never heard of sometimes causes strains, she admits, with friends and family. "But I honestly believe that Taib is probably one of the worst environmental criminals on the planet and that he has taken huge amounts from the country of my birth."
She smiles. "He never saw me coming. When he set up his property companies in 1982, he could never have imagined that some mad woman sitting in her kitchen in London would unravel his property empire simply by scrutinising company reports online."
As an investigative journalist who started with the BBC World Service in 1983, she is better equipped than most to uncover the wealth of the Mahmud family.
"My investigations have indicated that Taib and his family have a property empire in Canada, the US and the UK. Funds have been generated by Taib selling off rainforests with some of the money going through the British Virgin Islands."
The Evening Standard put these allegations to those who are behind the companies and they were denied.
Rewcastle Brown's passion for the rainforests of Sarawak was kindled as a child when she accompanied her mother, Karis, a midwife, into the jungle. Back then, Sarawak had the most biodiverse rainforest in the world with 3,000 species of trees, 15,000 plants, 420 birds and 221 mammals.
"My mother would drag me to remote clinics to show the indigenous Dayaks what a healthy baby should look like," she recalls.
"Everyone in those villages sleeps in one long-house and my mother frequently saved the lives of their sick babies. As a kid, my first friends were the local children and we used to climb trees and run barefoot, dodging the odd scorpion."
The family came to the UK when Rewcastle Brown was eight and she attended a private boarding school and later finished her masters in international relations at the LSE. It would be 38 years before she returned to Sarawak on a media trip where the degradation of the rainforest - so evident from the air - shocked her to the core.
In 2008 she went back to report on a by-election and secretly film companies clearing rainforest for oil palm. That was when she "fell into a peat bog and nearly died", and it was also when she met Jaban, 46, an election monitor fired from Taib's state-controlled radio for allowing callers to criticise the chief minister.
Last year she invited Jaban to become the voice of Radio Free Sarawak in London. It was a drastic step because it meant that while Taib stays in power, Jaban can never go back.
"I miss my four children, I miss my home," he says, tears streaming. He looks vulnerable, like a fish out of water, but he suddenly straightens. "I am prepared to die for this cause," he says. "In the days of my grandfather, you had to bring a decent clutch of heads as a sign of your masculinity when you got married. Today things have changed but you still have to be a man."
What are their chances of success? Rewcastle Brown ponders for a moment. "People say our man hasn't got a prayer in the election and that Taib will intimidate voters as he always does but I think our reports are having a huge effect and that there's a groundswell for change."
She smiles thinly. "You've got to take heart from what is happening in the Middle East to rulers who seemed equally immovable until just a few weeks ago."

He pays sub-saharan mercenaries to kill his own people.
He also paid Maria Carey USD1million to sing for him.
His soldiers kill their own countrymen for free!
Our Malaysian armed forces will never sink to this madness!
WHAT MANNER OF MAN IS THIS?
Anyway just in passing I chanced upon this:
Ahmad A. Talib
New Straits Times
Dr Mahathir finds Gaddafi more open, more receptive
Byline: Ahmad A. Talib
Edition: New Sunday Times; 2*
Memo: (STF) - The politics well in place, Malaysian businessmen should now move quickly to seek a stronger foothold in Morocco, Libya and Bahrain. Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad has once again shown the way forward during his recent trip to these three countries (April 15 to 21), reports AHMAD A. TALIB.
IT was way past midnight and Datuk Seri Dr Mahathir Mohamad had not yet returned to the Al-Kabir hotel from his "assignment"…………
…..I just hope Najib and Rosmah will not send Air Asia or MAS to bring back our businessmen…..if any….from these three troubled countries….

This morning I posted this on my Facebook:
Musa Ahmad ,39, raped an underaged girl 11 times within a month. He gets 2 years jail and one rotan whilst Baharuddin Omar gets 4 years and 3 strokes of the rotan for stealing a laptop. Makes your Sunday yah?
…..and these were some of the comments that came in:
It is a well-known fact that the Malaysian judiciary system requires a total revamp, but I never knew that it was quite this… extreme. Something has to be done, no?
Does it mean that stealing laptops is only for those desperate for a quick buck but for those desperate for sex, it's better to rape? Given a choice, is it better to rape?
It makes me wonder where the magistrate got his law degree?
In an article (HERE) FMT asked: Are our judges blind and deaf?
I’d rather volunteer MENTAL!

March 15 is just a month away!
Over a meal at Bangsar Village famed Geribaldi, the Whistler said….. or did he ask:
Will Sng Chee Hua be a millstone around Anwar’s neck?
When I asked him if he was asking a question, in his usual nonchalant manner, he said, “Maybe I am making a questionable statement?”
Yes, the Whistler can be mildly exasperating!
Luckily I am supremely patient and long-suffering!
I really am in no position to make a comment.
Meantime I will BE AWARE of the IDES OF MARCH!
A VERY PERSONAL ASIDE:
I WILL TREAD WARILY WHEN A CHINESE BUSINESSMAN HAS EVEN JUST ONE FINGER IN POLITICS.
“Firstly, we cannot equate what is happening in Egypt with Malaysia because things are very different in the two countries.” Najib Tun Razak
CORRUPTION IS CORRUPTION!
IN MALAYSIA OR MYANMAR!
SARAWAK OR SUDAN!
THE ONLY DIFFERECE IS:
The degree of corruption and the expediency of MACC, and the judiciary.
Najib and his boys need to contemplate hard on these quotes on this holy day!
Corruption has its own motivations, and one has to thoroughly study that phenomenon and eliminate the foundations that allow corruption to exist.
Corruption never has been compulsory.
Corruption is worse than prostitution. The latter might endanger the morals of an individual, the former invariably endangers the morals of the entire country.
Corruption, the greatest single bane of our society today.
I will be happy with certainly when the corruption index improve.
Abdullah Ahmad Badawi
In a state where corruption abounds, laws must be very numerous.
It is not the young people that degenerate; they are not spoiled till those of mature age are already sunk into corruption.
Charles de Montesquieu
Money and corruption are ruining the land, crooked politicians betray the working man, pocketing the profits and treating us like sheep, and we're tired of hearing promises that we know they'll never keep.
No science is immune to the infection of politics and the corruption of power.
The accomplice to the crime of corruption is frequently our own indifference.
The corruption in reporting starts very early. It's like the police reporting on the police.
The duty of youth is to challenge corruption.
The first sign of corruption in a society that is still alive is that the end justifies the means.
The winner must promote social jusitce, remove corruption and discrmination, and stand against political, cultural and economic plots.
We see violence to forcibly seize land, at any price, murders and corruption.
Whoever looks at Malaysia will see: the ship is powered by stupidity, corruption, or prejudice.
IT WONT HAPPEN HERE.
JUST MAYBE LATER.
