Why say they want to bomb Batu Caves?

While our mainstream media has been playing up terrorist threats, news portals in India picked up the Asian News International (ANI) report saying that tourists are still visiting the Batu Caves temple. (Kek Lok Si temple in Penang is the other purported target).

The media in India carries news related to the Indian community in Malaysia every now and then.

(Singapore appears fond of carrying news about Malaysia if they are negative, so if you want to read about what’s happening here, try Singapore papers. A recent example, ref. our posting ‘Bernama deaf to torture’. The Singapore Straits Times used the AFP wire agency version, while our Sniveling Star used the Bernama bowdlerized version of the UN rapporteur’s press conference.)

However back to terrorists …previously they bombed the nightspots in Bali, a Hindu island. So you gotta wonder, is it Hinduism that the Muslim militants hate? (And other religions too, like when the Taliban blasted the Bamiyan Buddhas).

Or is it the West, Western interests and Westerners? The target of the Bali bombings were white tourists.

Or is it sin they despise? The dancing and drinking in the Bali night clubs.

But back to Batu Caves. If there is any element of truth in the red alert that our government is issuing, what makes Batu Caves a target? The government must enlighten us, since they are telling us that there is a terror plot to attack temples.

    Cancerous Disease

    Kill the cancerous disease and the patient will survive, likewise get rid of the root cause and the Nation will survive and thrive.

    It does not matter what they do because whatever they do will be to no avail. Like RPK said in London, it is no good attempting to treat the symptoms because it just simply will not work. It is the cancerous disease that should be treated. So therefore as long as UMNO is in the driver seat then absolutely nothing could be done. Before anything else, UMNO will first have to line their pockets, then their families pockets, then their cronies pockets and then whatever morsels left to the selected segment of the rakyat. So how much is enough? It does not matter how much natural resources Malaysia possess for come one day these resources will eventually be exhausted. Then what?

    Be like Singapore one might suggest. But do our leaders have that mentality and maturity to do so? With the present government – not by an extra mile mate!

    Now the UMNO BN Rogues will bankrupt the Nation’s Coffer and cut subsidies to rob the poor and to subsidize their rich crony Tycoons so that the benefits can go back to them on demand. All the poor rakyats were having a bad deal since 53 years ago with them in power not once did they not squeeze the Rakyats with taxes after taxes now they will try to impose GST 4% on all levels that will resulted in more 16% taxes imposed on all ordinary basics consumers’ goods from materials Suppliers, manufacturers, wholesalers to retailers. Now they are trying to cut subsidies but they are not cutting back taxes but instead increased the taxes.

    Also it was discovered that they have their cronies increased the prices of foods such as vegetables and fruits included, also they have allowed their cronies to increase the prices of all basic construction materials including cement and steel to further squeeze the Rakyats’ well being of a reasonable survival in these bad times. Also, cash rich GLCs like Petronas, Felda, Sime Darby, MISC, Bank Bumiputra, Renong etc. are not spared from being fleeced and while some became History as they no longer exist today ok???

    So what can we the rakyat do? Well we can change all these just by a stroke of the pen. Quoting RPK, ‘We the rakyat is the boss’. So come GE13 with the stroke of the pen, we could effectively change the government and consign UMNO/BN to the gutter. Well not totally to the gutter but enough to effect them to be the opposition as at the end of the day checks and balances are still needed irregardless of who is forming the government on that day.

    ALL MALAYSIANS IRRESPECTIVE OF RACES ARE SUFFERING THE OPPRESSIVE RULE BY THE ROGUES OF UMNO BN AND WE ARE HOPEFUL THAT THERE ARE MORE RPKS WHO DARE TO EXPOSE & BRING OUT ALL THE WRONG DOINGS OF THE CORRUPTED LEADERS OF UMNO BN TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE WHOLE WORLD SO THAT ALL MALAYSIAN VOTERS WILL VOTE WISELY COME GE 13 AND BRING DOWN THE CORRUPTED AND OPPRESSIVE UMNO BN GOVERNMENT SOONEST POSSIBLE FOR THE FUTURE WELL BEING OF ALL MALAYSIAN CITIZENS AS THE COUNTRY’S RESOURCES WILL SOON BE DEPLETED IN NO TIME UNDER THE WASTEFUL AND CORRUPTED UMNO OFFICIALS MIS-MANAGING THE MALAYSIAN ECONOMY.

    The war that was necessary to be fought by all Malaysians is the only war against corruption by UMNO Rouges and their oppressive rule by their using Police Force as their tools to suppress dissents ok?

    This is necessary so the said Govt. Coffers will not be empty when the new PR Govt. took over from them come next GE, Malaysian Voters should know what is required to throw them all out then because future generations of Malaysians will suffer great poverty after Umno BN would have bankrupted the Govt. Coffers by then if there is no CHANGE OF HANDS AFTER DECADES OF MIS-MANAGEMENT OF THE ECONOMY AND HIDING THE DAMAGED DONE BY POSTING RECOVERY STORIES AND THE OVER-GLORIFIED NEM IN THE MSM FOR SHOW ONLY, HOW TO BELIEVE THE MSM WHEN WHAT THEY TRULY DID WAS TO TELL ALL SORTS OF LIES OR DISTORTIONS FOR THE UMNO BN GOVERNMENT IN POWER WHO CONTROLLED THEIR YEARLY RENEWAL PUBLISHING LICENCES.

    ANOTHER OF THE GREAT LIES AND DISTORTIONS THE CORRUPTED UMNO BN WILL TRY TO SPREAD A PROPAGANDA AND IN ORDER TO BRAINWASH AND HOODWINK THE MALAYSIAN GENERAL PUBLIC INTO BELIEVING THERE ARE REAL FUEL SUBSIDIES IN OIL (PETROL & DIESEL) AND GAS, THERE CAN NEVER BE ANY SUBSIDIES IN THESE ITEMS BECAUSE MALAYSIA IS A NETT OIL AND GAS PRODUCER MEANING AFTER THE DEDUCTION OF DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION MALAYSIA HAS PRODUCED AN EXCESS OF THESE ITEMS FOR EXPORT AND WHATEVER IS FOR DOMESTIC CONSUMPTION IS SOLD AT A DISCOUNT AND NEVER CONSIDERED AS SUBSIDY AT ALL QUOTING AN EXAMPLE LIKE OIL AND GAS PRODUCER LIKE BRUNEI AND SAUDI ARABIA AND OTHER GREAT OIL PRODUCERS, DOMESTIC PETROL AND DIESEL PRICES ARE SOLD LOCALLY AT A VERY STEEP DISCOUNTED PRICES AS COMPARED AGAINST WORLD IMPORTERS NON-OIL PRODUCERS’ LOCAL CONSUMPTION PRICES AND THE UMNO BN ROGUES ARE TRYING TO TAKE ALL MALAYSIANS FOR A RIDE BY INSISTING THAT THERE IS A SUBSIDY IN THE OIL AND GAS PRICES BUT IN FACT THERE WERE NONE BUT A STRATEGY TO CHEAT FOR THEIR OWN END TO PRACTISE MORE CORRUPTIONS FROM THE EXTRA THAT COULD BE MADE FROM THOSE LIES AND DISTORTIONS THEY TRY TO SPREAD IN THE MSMES CONTROLLED TIGHTLY BY THEM WITH THE RESTRICTIVE YEARLY RENEWAL PUBLISHING LICENCES.

    WHAT IS THE POINT WHEN ONLY THE PM’S BROTHER CAN SPEAK HIS MIND WITH SINCERE HONESTY AGAINST NEP BUT THE WHOLE PACKS OF UMNO BN ARE ROTTEN TO THE CORE BEYOND RECOVERY OK, AS IT IS BEYOND HIS POWER NOR OF ANY GREAT INFLUENCE TO PRESS FOR ANY CHANGES IN THE COMPLEX MIRED PROBLEMS THIS NATION HAS BECOME EVERSINCE ???

    I’m getting sick of PR manipulative politics! In fact, PR is getting worst than UMNO! Dangerous Arabic-Pakistani led Muslim fanatics and terrorists are for real -and they are mushrooming in Malaysia and Indonesia and infiltrating Muslim NGOs, universities and PAS, besides targeting the oil. And their hatred of non-Muslims, including causing racial-based division between Muslims and non-Muslims are for real. Do you want Muslim terrorist’ bombings like in Bali, or terrorist camps and brutal Sharia like in Acheh, to spread to Malaysia? Instead of using this fundamental issue as political football, PR should support the Govt on this (it’s not about supporting Umno!) – that is if you care about making Malaysia peaceful and tolerant Muslims and non-Muslims alike, safe again from such grip of Muslim fanatics and terrorists!

    Something really puzzle me here. Intelligents in Malaysia are saying that Batu Caves (Indians) and Kek Lok Si (Chinese) are being targetted by the terrorist, normally this kind of intelligents report will not be made public until those terrorists are either caught or a bomb threat are found.. So what kind of message our governent try to send to the public here??

    1) The story of the terrorist are being blown out context just to show to the non-muslim that the Government are ‘equal’ and care for the non-muslim in the country?

    2) To divert public attention on the on-going mismanagement and mistreatment by current government so it can buy some time to ease all the spot light on them (Malaysian are very forgetful)?

    or

    3) Maybe these terrorist things are for real, non-muslim are being targetted here and who is to be blamed? PERKASA? with all the radical and racist remark by Ibrahim? fanning the racial issue, building the hate within muslims?

    4) I was wondering if really the temple got blown away, what kind of statement Ibrahim PERKASA will make? Condemn or Praise?

    One way or another, Just remember those peaceful and harmonies moment spend with your ‘other’ race friends when you were at school, when politics and reality seems out of touch, aren’t we enjoying that moment?
