#KrisisMB Kifarah @Khalid_Ibrahim akibat meninggalkan perjuangan ABATA

UMNO & BN are far better than PR, observe & open up @NatAsasi. Those in PKR were sacked or left UMNO/BN b4 bcoz they were bad people, not loyal or easily cheated by Anwar 

Losing the best people in PKR

COMMENT If Abdul Khalid Ibrahim is a good man, why has there not been a single leader in his party who has stood up for him?

This is a reasonable question, given that in these last few months, literally not a single PKR top leader has come out to say: I support Khalid.

There are two very obvious potential scenarios that explain this state of affairs.

The first, propagated by the likes of Rafizi Ramli (left), is that Khalid is in fact corrupt, and all PKR leaders realise this truth.

If this is true, we would be hard pressed to explain why Khalid did not take what were literally hundreds of opportunities to abuse his position of power and enrich himself in his six years as menteri besar.

If anyone thinks it is difficult to make five or ten-fold of RM 70 million within six years as menteri besar of the richest state in Malaysia, one only need ask Dr Khir Toyo for some pointers.

The second explanation as to why Khalid has no political allies within PKR is simply because there is no ‘benefit’ or ‘reward’ in supporting Khalid.

No contracts for backing Khalid

You could suck up to Khalid from the rising of the sun, to the going down of the same, and not only will you not be rewarded with positions or contracts, you are likely to end up in his bad books.

This is the exact opposite of the spirit of feudalism that it is increasingly clear pervades PKR.

Politicians have prevailed on Khalid again and again to loosen Selangor’s purse strings, and to oil the wheels of Pakatan Rakyat’s political machinery. Khalid has again and again said no, this money belongs to the people of Selangor, not to any political interests.

For a while, some of the slightly better politicians praised Khalid for taking this stance. However, a much bigger group started saying: “Very action lah! Think you’ll be there forever? Let’s just see how long you can stay in power like that.”

It turns out the latter group has long overpowered the few in the former.

Integrity deficit in PKR leadership

If I am correct in thinking of Khalid as a man of integrity, then you can imagine my sad disappointment at how so many people in the party I have known personally for such a long time abandoned him to the wolves.

Not a single one of his former supporters, or those who would sing his praises, stood by him when push came to shove.

From the perspective of democratic representation, we note also that despite over a third of PKR’s members voting for Khalid in the second to last vote count, not a single leader has taken up his cause.

Again, his detractors will say the fault for this lies with Khalid himself, but for whatever little my opinion is worth, I think this reveals more about those who did not stand up for Khalid than it does about Khalid himself.

Does politics invariably corrupt?

There are some people who feel that politics invariably corrupts. Being allergic to cynicism, I have never chosen to agree with the ‘invariably’ part of that sentence, but at this point I am certainly comfortable with replacing it with ‘often’ or even ‘almost always’.

Malaysian politics feels like acid that eats away at personal integrity. PKR used to be home to so many individuals I looked up to - individuals of integrity that I felt fought bravely and intelligently for Malaysians, and for a Malaysia free from corruption.

Now, it feels like never-ending shades of grey have eliminated even the most basic sense of black and white in these same individuals. The Selangor crisis has clearly smashed what little was left of PKR’s moral compass, causing its ship to drift well into Barisan Nasional’s waters of corruption and self-centered politics.

The situation seems no better with DAP and the Erdogan faction of PAS. If my evaluation of the entire Kajang Move is correct, then they are as complicit and responsible as anyone in PKR.

Khalid losing his position as menteri besar is probably not the worst thing to emerge from this crisis. The worst is that in its pursuit of misguided objectives, PKR and Pakatan have lost their best, strongest feature - the integrity of their leaders.

‘Friend and family member’

Some will cry realpolitik and make accusations of both naivette as well as a blind obsession with Khalid. I do not begrudge them their view. We must all reflect on our positions and then live with them.

I joined PKR in 2007, just before the Ijok by-election that Khalid lost. PKR was a one seat party then, with Dr Wan Azizah Wan Ismail standing alone in a Parliament dominated by dark blue.

I left the party in January 2014. This time, it is now Khalid who is alone. I am proud to have believed in the underdog in 2007, and no less proud to do the same in 2014.

Anwar Ibrahim’s exhortation not to resort to personal attacks against his ‘friend and family member’ Khalid was not wrong, but one cannot help but feel that it rings hollow, given how the vicious campaign against Khalid would have been impossible without Anwar’s go ahead.

Broken bonds

Nurul Izzah Anwar made one of her first public comments about the menteri besar issue, throwing her support behind her mother Wan Azizah, quoting Wan Azizah’s strength during Anwar’s imprisonment as qualification for the menteri besar post.

I cannot help but recall another story Nurul Izzah used to tell. I heard it once in person at a Selangor buka puasa event some years ago, and I believe it is a story she often used to tell at events with Khalid.

Nurul Izzah spoke of how alone Anwar was, imprisoned in Sungai Buloh, with all his former friends and allies having completely abandoned him. No one who was part of the establishment would dare to visit him in prison for fear of the taint it would bring onto themselves.

No one but Khalid.

I remember Nurul Izzah describing with great feeling and eloquence how, despite having everything to lose, Khalid stuck to his principles, and stood by Anwar and his family in their darkest hour.

Fifteen years later, Khalid is still sticking to his principles. This time, though, he appears to be standing alone.

NATHANIEL TAN thanks everyone who has ever stood by him, including Anwar Ibrahim. He tweets @NatAsasi.

Serangan hendap terhadap Hadi, #LangkahKajang punca Dr Zuhdi serang Anwar?

Shah Alam – Setelah sekian lama menyepikan diri daripada membuat kenyataan balas berhubung kritikan yang dilemparkan kepada beliau ekoran penyebaran 'WhatsApp' AJK PAS Pusat, Dr. Mohd. Zuhdi Marzuki tampil membuat kenyataan secara terbuka dihadapan jemaah yang hadir pada majlis Solat Hajat di kediaman Menteri Besar malam tadi.

Menurut Pengarah Operasi Pusat Penyelidikan PAS itu segala kritikan mahupun serangan yang dilakukan beliau terhadap Ketua Umum PKR sebelum ini hanyalah kerana dua perkara iaitu ekoran serangan hendap terhadap Presiden PAS, Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang serta 'Langkah Kajang'.

"Saya kritik Ketua Umum PKR disebabkan dua perkara. Pertamanya, saya dimaklumkan oleh sahabat saya ada satu bentuk serangan hendap yang dilakukan keatas peribadi Presiden PAS dan juga Idris bahawa mereka inilah yang mempertahankan Tan Sri Khalid atas sebab kepentingan peribadi.

"Serangan itu dilakukan dengan serangan hendap menggunakan portal online.

"Keduanya, saya mengambil tindakan menentang Ketua Umum PKR disebabkan 'Langkah Kajang' yang mana 'Langkah Kajang' ini merupakan jalan pintas untuk menuju Putrajaya," ujarnya.

Mengulas lanjut Zuhdi berkata meskipun Pakatan pembangkang memenangi banyak kerusi semasa pilihanraya namun mereka masih belum mampu untuk ke Putrajaya dan menyifatkan ia belum sampai masanya lagi.

"Belum sampai masanya walaupun mereka mendakwa undi popular lebih tetapi belum sampai masanya. Lantaran itu kita bersabar. Rakyat Selangor memberi amanah kepada MB dan kumpulannya supaya selepas ini kita menyinsing lengan turun memberi khidmat kepada rakyat…bukan menjadikan Selangor ini jalan pintas untuk mendapatkan jawatan-jawatan penting dalam Putrajaya," tegasnya.

Katanya lagi, beliau percaya dan yakin serangan hendap yang cuba dilakukan terhadap Hadi datangnya daripada orang terdekat Anwar.

Sehubungan itu, Zuhdi berkata sebagai ahli PAS beliau tidak akan berdiam diri dengan tindakan tersebut.

Namun, malangnya tindakan Zuhdi bangkit mempertahankan Hadi disifatkan pula sebagai orang yang tidak amanah dan hanya bertujuan meruntuhkan Pakatan Rakyat.

Sebaliknya, beliau mempersoalkan mengapakah tiada tindakan yang diambil oleh pihak yang membuat serangan hendap terhadap Tuan Presiden.

"Apabila kita menyerang semula kita dianggap sebagai orang yang tidak amanah dan bertujuan meruntuhkan PR. Kenapa tidak diambil tindakan kepada orang yang mengambil tindakan secara serangan hendap yang sehingga hari ini serengan tersebut masih berterusan melalui akhbar? soalnya.

Mengulas lanjut isu menteri besar Selangor Zuhdi menegaskan bahawa langkah mahu menggugurkan Menteri Besar bukanlah semudah yang disangka seperti menukar pakaian.

"Tindakan menurun atau menaikkan pemimpin bukan seperti tukar pakaian, nak turun orang ni, tak puas hati dengan orang ini atau nak naikkan orang kesukaan dia bila-bila masa seperti mana tukar pakaian.

"Ini bukan amalan yang baik hatta dalam negara demokrasi, biarkan negara demokrasi ini dipimpin oleh Perlembagaan. Lima tahun sekali, berikan ruang, " katanya.

Selain itu, Zuhdi sekali lagi menegaskan bahawa beliau tidak pernah menyokong cadangan yang diperdebatkan dalam WhatsApp tersebut sebaliknya hanya mengemukakan beberapa senario sahaja.

Mesej WhatsApp yang dikatakan mengandungi perbincangan sulit antara sekumpulan pemimpin kanan PAS sekiranya parti tersebut keluar daripada pakatan pembangkang dan bekerjasama dengan UMNO itu tersebar sejak Ahad lalu.

Berdasarkan pada cetakan skrin mesej WhatsApp terbabit seperti yang disebarkan melalui media sosial, Mohd. Zuhdi memberi analisis bahawa PAS mungkin boleh mengekalkan penguasaan parti itu di Selangor sekiranya bergabung dengan 12 Ahli Dewan Undangan Negeri (ADUN) Barisan Nasional (BN) dan dua ADUN PKR.

Loke dan Dap terkilan Dr Zuhdi dan Pas mahu jentik Dap

Nota: Amaran Loke kepada Pas " Ingatlah bahawa DAP tidak memerlukan PAS sebaliknya PAS yang memerlukan DAP untuk mendapat undi kaum bukan Melayu."

Kenyatan media Setiausaha Organisasi Kebangsaan DAP merangkap Ahli Parlimen Seremban Loke Siew Fook pada 29 Julai 2014 di Kuala Lumpur.

DAP menyeru pimpinan PAS pusat untuk mengambil satu pendirian yang tegas untuk menjauhkan diri dari cadangan Dr Zuhdi dan mengambil tindakan yang sewajarnya untuk mengembalikan keyakinan penyokong-penyokong Pakatan Rakyat khasnya DAP di seluruh negara terhadap PAS.

DAP amat terkilan dengan pendedahan mesej Pengarah Operasi Pusat Penyelidikan PAS Pusat Dr Mohd Zuhdi Marzuki dalam “Whatsapp AJK PAS Pusat” yang berbunyi;

“Kalau kita keluar PR kita boleh retain Selangor malah untuk seterusnya. Kita 15 kerusi+TSKI+seorang lagi ADUN PKR+12 UMNO, dah bentuk simple majoriti. UMNO dalam kenyataannya mutakhir ini boleh terima TSKI jadi MB..Lepas ini kalau DAP, gereja dan non Muslim melalak isu serbuan, kalimah Allah, kita boleh jentik saja mereka. Hujung tahun ini ubah sempadan kembalikan semula kuasa politik Melayu Islam. So mana-mana suara non-muslim, gereja, kita boleh sergah macam sebelum ini...”

Yang pertamanya, Dr Zuhdi tidak menafikan menulis mesej tersebut tetapi cuba mempertahankan dirinya dengan mengatakan bahawa apa yang ditulis oleh beliau adalah “analisis senario” kepada cadangan oleh seorang pemimpin kanan PAS supaya PAS keluar dari PR.

“Analisis” sebegini lebih-lebih lagi dari seorang pemimpin PAS pusat adalah sangat tidak bertanggungjawab dan ada unsur-unsur membelot kepercayaan rakyat. Walaupun cadangan untuk kekal atau keluar dari PR adalah hak pimpinan PAS, namun cadangan untuk bergabung dengan UMNO dan membentuk kerajaan negeri Selangor adalah satu pengkhianatan bukan sahaja kepada PKR dan DAP, tetapi juga kepada rakyat Selangor khasnya kaum Cina yang telah memberikan mandat yang jelas kepada Pakatan Rakyat dalam PRU13.

Mana-mana pemimpin yang berfikiran sebegitu dan melontarkan cadangan tersebut perlu dikutuk dan dihina dengan sekeras-kerasnya. Saya ingin mengingatkan Dr Zuhdi dan mana-mana pimpinan PAS supaya memahami analisa politik bahawa kemenangan kerusi-kerusi yang dimenangi  PAS di Selangor adalah melalui sokongan kuat kaum Cina yg menyokong DAP. Pimpinan PAS tak perlu berlagak sombong atau bongkak kerana DAP memainkan peranan besar dalam PRU13 yang lepas. Kalau mengharapkan sokongan kaum Melayu semata amat mustahil untuk PAS menang 15 kerusi DUN di Selangor!

Yang keduanya dan lebih mendukacitakan ialah seorang Pengarah Operasi Pusat Penyelidikan PAS yang sepatutnya diamanahkan sebagai “think tank” kepada PAS boleh “mengimaginasi” untuk “menjentik DAP, gereja dan non Muslim” apabila ada pandangan yang berbeza. Ke mana perginya sifat keterbukaan dan toleransi slogan “PAS for ALL”?

Saya juga tidak pernah ada imaginasi bahawa seorang pemimpin PAS boleh “mengimaginasi” seperti UMNO untuk mengembalikan kuasa politik Melayu Islam melalui persempadanan semula kawasan pilihanraya. Bukankah cadangan seperti ini seolah-olah bersekongkol dengan SPR dan tiada beza dengan agenda dari PERKASA?

Cadangan dan pemikiran Dr Zuhdi ini amat mencemarkan imej positif PAS yang selama ini dilihat sebagai sebuah parti politik yang memperjuangkan keadilan dan kuat berpegang kepada prinsip. Saya yakin majoriti pemimpin PAS Pusat bersama DAP dan amat tidak bersetuju dengan cadangan dan pandangan Dr Zuhdi.

DAP menyeru pimpinan PAS pusat supaya mengambil satu pendirian yang tegas untuk menjauhkan diri daripada cadangan Dr Zuhdi dan mengambil tindakan tegas yang sewajarnya untuk mengembalikan keyakinan pengundi-pengundi dan penyokong-penyokong Pakatan Rakyat di seluruh negara terhadap PAS. PAS juga perlu memecat Dr. Zuhdi bagi menghormati dasar kerjasama dengan DAP. Ingatlah bahawa DAP tidak memerlukan PAS sebaliknya PAS yang memerlukan DAP untuk mendapat undi kaum bukan Melayu.

#MH17 : [Video] Bahan mengaitkan Rusia dengan nahas adalah palsu dan direka



Hujah-hujah yang menafikan bukti-bukti yang mengaitkan Rusia dengan kejadian agak meyakinkan.


#MH17: Pemisah serah Kotak Hitam kepada Pakar Malaysia dan Belanda seperti dijanjikan



Penyerahan Kotak Hitam MH17 dilakukan pada jam 0113 waktu Ukraine (6:13 pagi waktu Malaysia)




Mayat #MH17: Diplomasi PM @NajibRazak lebih hebat daripada @BarrackObama


3 isi utama ucapan Perdana Menteri Datuk Seri Najib Razak jam 12.20mlm 22 Julai 2014.

Setelah berunding dengan Aleksander Borodai

1. Kumpulan pemisah bersetuju untuk serahkan mayat nahas MH17 kpd Malaysia.
2. Kumpulan pemisah bersetuju utk serahkan 2 kotak hitam kepada Malaysia.
3. Kumpulan pemisah juga beri jaminan keselamatan utk penyiasat antarabangsa masuk ke kawasan nahas.

Ada satu pandangan yang menarik mengenai diplomasi Amerika Syarikat. Dikatakan tindakan Obama dan AS bukan untuk memastikan mangsa, black box atau kawasan terhempas diberi perhatian tetapi lebih kpd memberi tekanan kpd Russia.

Siapa lebih bijak berdiplomasi?


PRIME MINISTER NAJIB RAZAK STATEMENT ON MH17 AGREEMENT



In recent days, we have been working behind  the scenes to establish contact with those in charge of the MH17 crash site.



That contact has now been made. Under difficult and fluid circumstances, we have been discussing the problems that have occupied us all: securing vital evidence from the aircraft, launching an independent investigation, and above all recovering the remains of those who lost their lives.



Tonight, we have established the basis of an agreement to do just that.



Earlier this evening I spoke to Alexander Borodai, who is in command of the region where the tragedy occurred. We have agreed the following: 



Firstly, the remains of 282 people, currently in Torez, will be moved by train to Kharkiv, where they will be handed over to representatives from the Netherlands. The train will depart this evening Ukraine time, and will be accompanied by six Malaysian members of the recovery team. The remains will then be flown to Amsterdam on board a Dutch C130 Hercules, together with the Malaysian team. Following any necessary forensic work, the remains of Malaysian citizens will then be flown home to Malaysia.



Secondly, at approximately 9pm tonight Ukraine time, the two black boxes will be handed over to a Malaysian team in Donetsk, who will take custody of them.



Thirdly, independent international investigators will be guaranteed safe access to the crash site to begin a full investigation of the incident.



I must stress that although agreement has been reached, there remain a number of steps required before it is completed.



There is work still to be done, work which relies on continued communication in good faith. Mr Borodai and his people have so far given their co-operation.



I ask that all parties continue to work together to ensure that this agreement is honoured; that the remains of our people are returned, that the black box is handed over, and that the international team is granted full access to the site.



Only then can the investigation into MH17 truly begin; only then can the victims be afforded the respect they deserve. We need to know what caused the plane to crash, and who was responsible for it, so that justice may be done.



In recent days, there were times I wanted to give greater voice to the anger and grief that the Malaysian people feel. And that I feel. But sometimes, we must work quietly in the service of a better outcome.



I understand that for the families, nothing can undo this damage. The lives taken cannot be given back; the dignity lost cannot be regained.



My heart reaches out to those whose loved ones were lost on MH17. We hope and pray that the agreement reached tonight helps bring them a clear step towards closure.

#MH17 : Putin setuju bantu bawa pulang mayat




#MH17 – Putin Akan Bantu Dapatkan Mayat Dan Kotak Hitam MH17

The Hague – Presiden Russia, Vladimir Putin berjanji kepada Perdana Menteri Belanda, Mark Rutte bahawa beliau akan membantu mengeluarkan mayat dan kotak hitam dari tempat pesawat MH17 itu terhempas di kawasan pemberontakan Ukraine.

Putin, yang dipercayai mempunyai pengaruh ke atas pemberontak pro-Russia, membuat janji itu dalam perbualan ketiganya dengan Rutte sejak kejadian berkenaan Khamis lalu, kata perkhidmatan media kerajaan Belanda, RVD.

“Selain membenarkan akses tiada halangan ke tempat kejadian, perbualan itu ditumpukan kepada perkara praktikal, seperti kereta api yang membawa banyak mayat dan penyerahan balik kotak hitam,” kata jurucakap RVD.

“Untuk kedua-dua perkara itu, Putin berjanji akan memberi kerjasama sepenuhnya,” kata jurucakap itu.

Sebahagian daripada 298 orang dalam Penerbangan Malaysia itu, yang kemungkinan besar ditembak jatuh oleh peluru berpandu pemberontak pro-Russia, adalah rakyat Belanda.

#MH17: Benarkah Rusia bersalah? Apa jawapan Ukraine terhadap soalan-soalan ini?

Nota: Tumpuan dunia ketika ini adalah untuk menyalahkan Rusia dalam hal berkaitan tembakan misil terhadap MH17. Benarkah Russia yang bersalah dalam hal ini atau ini satu lagi gerakan perhubungan awam untuk menyalahkan Rusia oleh pihak-pihak tertentu? Apapun terdapat kewajaran bagi kerajaan Ukraine untuk menjawab persoalan-persoalan yang diajukan oleh Rusia di bawah:-

TEN QUESTIONS FOR THE UKRAINIAN AUTHORITIES
1. Immediately after the tragedy, the Ukrainian authorities, naturally, blamed it on the self-defense forces. What are these accusations based on?

2. Can Kiev explain in detail how it uses Buk missile launchers in the conflict zone? And why were these systems deployed there in the first place, seeing as the self-defense forces don’t have any planes?

3. Why are the Ukrainian authorities not doing anything to set up an international commission? When will such a commission begin its work?

4. Would the Ukrainian Armed Forces be willing to let international investigators see the inventory of their air-to-air and surface-to-air missiles, including those used in SAM launchers?

5. Will the international commission have access to tracking data from reliable sources regarding the movements of Ukrainian warplanes on the day of the tragedy?

6. Why did Ukrainian air traffic controllers allow the plane to deviate from the regular route to the north, towards “the anti-terrorist operation zone”?

7. Why was airspace over the warzone not closed for civilian flights, especially since the area was not entirely covered by radar navigation systems?

8. How can official Kiev comment on reports in the social media, allegedly by a Spanish air traffic controller who works in Ukraine, that there were two Ukrainian military planes flying alongside the Boeing 777 over Ukrainian territory?

9. Why did Ukraine’s Security Service start working with the recordings of communications between Ukrainian air traffic controllers and the Boeing crew and with the data storage systems from Ukrainian radars without waiting for international investigators?

10. What lessons has Ukraine learned from a similar incident in 2001, when a Russian Tu-154 crashed into the Black Sea? Back then, the Ukrainian authorities denied any involvement on the part of Ukraine’s Armed Forces until irrefutable evidence proved official Kiev to be guilty.

UN to vote on #MH17 disaster resolution on July 21

UN to vote on MH17 disaster resolution
on July 21, 2014


Pro-Russian rebels hinder OSCE monitors full access to MH17 crash site


UNITED NATIONS - The United Nations Security Council is expected to consider on Monday a resolution demanding that pro-Russian separatists provide “full and unrestricted access” to the crash site of a downed jet in Ukraine.

The document, proposed by Australia and co-sponsored by countries like France, also calls on all actors in the region to fully cooperate in an international probe of the incident.
It demands that all military activities, including by armed groups, be “immediately ceased in the immediate area surrounding the crash site to allow for the security and safety of the international investigation.”

A vote was set for Monday at 3pm (1900 GMT).

Russia, as a permanent member of the Security Council, has the right to exercise its veto power to scrap the resolution.

Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 is believed to have been blown out of the sky on Thursday by a surface-to-air missile, killing all 298 passengers and crew members.

Among the dead are 28 Australian citizens.

The measure “condemns in the strongest terms” the actions that caused the plane to crash.
It demands that armed groups controlling the area “refrain from any actions that may compromise the integrity of the crash site… and immediately provide safe, secure, full and unrestricted access to the site and surrounding area for the appropriate investigating authorities”.

While not mentioning Russia specifically, it “calls on all states and actors in the region to cooperate fully in relation to the international investigation of the incident.”
The text also urges countries to respect international civil aviation safety rules “in order to prevent the recurrence of such incidents, and demands that all states and other actors refrain from acts of violence directed against civilian aircraft”.

Pressure mounts on Russia

World leaders have demanded for Russian President Vladimir Putin to use his influence to persuade the rebels to hand over the victims and allow full access to the crash site.
Major European nations have warned Moscow of additional possible sanctions over the crash.
On Friday, panel members, including Russia, demanded a full, independent probe of the downing.

Australia had asked that its 14 counterparts submit their comments on the measure.
One Western diplomat said it was difficult to know whether the Russians would exercise their veto power, adding Moscow was under significant pressure.
The diplomat did not rule out the possibility that Russia could ask for more time to examine the text.

US Secretary of State John Kerry said earlier that it was “pretty clear that this is a system that was transferred from Russia in the hands of separatists,” while slamming “grotesque” scenes at the crash site, reports AFP.
