‘Melayu’

Saya paling pantang orang yang malu dengan bangsa sendiri, bila kita bangga dilabel racist padahal itulah keturunan kita, budaya kita,sejarah kita. Sedangkan bangsa lain juga berbangga dengan keturunan, budaya, asal usul mereka, mengapa tidak kita?

Bukankah dalam Quran pun ada sebut kita ni dilahirkan berbilang-bilang bangsa agar dapat mengenali antara satu sama lain?

Jika semua orang sama, maka sosialislah kita. Sama rata dalam Islam itu berbeza dengan sama rata sosialis. Sosialis menyamaratakan miskin dengan kaya, tapi adilkah jika kita berusaha lebih maka hasil kita harus sama dengan orang lain, dan apabila orang lain bekerja sedikit atau tak bekerja langsung maka sama juga hasil diperolehinya?

Sama rata dalam islam , mengambil zakat dari yang kaya dan memberikannya kepada yang miskin. Itu bezanya.

Tidak, ini bukan soal ‘ketuanan melayu’, tetapi orang Melayu kita sangat mudah untuk menerima pandangan, dogma, dan propaganda yang dimomokkan kepada kita tanpa memikirkan terlebih dahulu baik dan buruknya.

Ya ada Melayu yang malas, yang dengki, yang menabur pasir ke periuk nasi keluarga sendiri. Bangsa lain juga ada , malah mungkin lebih teruk?  Tapi ada juga Melayu yang baik, yang berbudi bahasa, yang boleh buat kita berbangga, bahawa itulah anak Melayu kita yang berjaya dan mampu bersaing dengan bangsa-bangsa lain.

Tahukah kita bila seorang Raja melayu memeluk Islam , hampir semua rakyatnya memeluk Islam? Hampir semua aspek kehidupan orang Melayu disesuaikan dengan agama islam, dan meninggalkan hanya yang melanggar syariat Islam? Tahukah kita bahawa tulisan Jawi itu sendiri dicipta oleh orang Melayu untuk menterjemah kitab-kitab agama Islam terdahulu agar mudah untuk difahami dan diajar kepada orang Melayu. Tahukah kita bahasa Melayu itu sendiri pernah menjadi lingua franca malah penjajah-penjajah juga harus belajar bahasa Melayu dan menulis dalam Jawi untuk diberikan kepada Sultan dan menteri-menteri untuk berdagang dan berurusan dengan mereka?

Demokrasi dan hak sama rata telah digunakan terlalu bebas sehinggakan berkahwin sesama jantina juga ‘sama’. Sebagai orang Islam, saya menulis dari konteks yang jelas di dalam Islam tidak membenarkan amalan tersebut apatah lagi ‘berkahwin’ sesama ‘jantina’.

Sama rata dalam Islam tidak mengenal bangsa, itu benar, tapi tidak bermakna tidak boleh menghargai keturunan, bangsa, budaya dan sejarah kita sendiri. Asalkan kita tidak berlebih-lebihan hingga kita merasakan kita terlalu hebat dari bangsa lain seperti Yahudi terhadap bangsa-bangsa lain.

Dan penyebar penyebar dakyah demokrasi, pluralisme, dan apa-apa -isme semakin hari semakin menular sehingga orang tempatan hilang indentiti mereka sendiri. Lihat saja pada apa yang kita pakai seharian, apa yang kita tonton, apa yang kita makan, masih adakah orang Melayu yang mahu keluar dengan berpakaian melayu selain dari hari Jumaat dan keramaian sahaja? Masih adakah orang Melayu yang tahu memasak masakan tradisional dan bukan KFC, McD dan Secret Recipe? Masih adakah orang Melayu yang mahu menonton wayang kulit, makyong, inang dan zapin? Masih adakah juga yang tahu menari tarian tradisional, sekalipun hanya Joget Lambak?

Semua itu dilabel sebagai ketinggalan zaman, dan bukan zaman yang perlu dikejar kembali agar dapat kita kongsikan dengan generasi seterusnya bahawa kita punya budaya, sejarah dan bahasa kita sendiri. Dan bukan hanya bergantung kepada apa yang dibawa dari luar , dan ditentukan oleh orang-orang yang kita rasakan hebat sedangkan masih ada lagi orang-orang Melayu yang mampu melakukan perkara yang sama cuma tidak diketengahkan sahaja.

Jadi janganlah malu untuk menjadi diri sendiri, menjadi apa yang Tuhan sudah anugerahkan kepada kita, sekalipun bangsa kita sendiri kerana kita dilahirkan sebagai bangsa Melayu yang dianugerahkan dengan Islam sejak kita kecil tanpa perlu tercari-cari melainkan kita sendiri yang tergelincir dari jalan yang telah dibukakan kepada kita.

Malaysia: Failure of U.S. to Subvert the Elections and Install a “Proxy Regime”

Malaysia: Failure of U.S. to Subvert the Elections and Install a “Proxy Regime”

Malaysia: Failure of U.S. to Subvert the Elections and Install a “Proxy Regime”

By Tony Cartalucci, Centre for Research on Globalization, Canada

Malaysia’s so-called election monitor, the Merdeka Center for Opinion Research, is likewise funded directly by the US through NED. Despite this, Western media outlets, in pursuit of promoting the Western-backed People’s Alliance, has repeatedly referred to Merdeka as “independent.”

…. However, an election monitoring organization funded by a foreign government which openly seeks to remove the current ruling party from Malaysia in favor of long-time Wall Street servant Anwar Ibrahim is most certainly not “independent.”

The substantial, yet carefully obfuscated support the West has lent Anwar should be of no surprise to those familiar with Anwar’s history. That Anwar Ibrahim himself was Chairman of the Development Committee of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) in 1998, held lecturing positions at the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, was a consultant to the World Bank, and a panelist at the Neo-Con lined National Endowment for Democracy’s “Democracy Award” and a panelist at a NED donation ceremony – the very same US organization funding and supporting Bersih and so-called “independent” election monitor Merdeka – paints a picture of an opposition running for office in Malaysia, not for the Malaysian people, but clearly for the corporate financier interests of Wall Street and London.

“…it is important for Malaysians to understand the true nature of the Western organizations funding their attempts to politically undermine the ruling party and divide Malaysians against each other, and exactly why this is being done in the greater context of US hegemony in Asia

For now, America has tripped in mid-pivot toward its hegemonic agenda in Asia, with Malaysia’s ruling government providing a model for other nations in the region to follow, should they be interested in sovereignty and independent progress – no matter how flawed or slow it may be.”

My only concern, the researcher have done justice by writing this on behalf of the Malaysians. If you can’t still see the bigger picture, then there is nothing I can do except pray that sooner or later people will come to their senses.

Terima Kasih Malaysia.

“Kemenangan ini adalah kemenangan rakyat Malaysia, bukan parti, tetapi rakyat Malaysia sudah memilih apa yang terbaik untuk Malaysia” – My Parents

(This victory is a victory for the Malaysians, not party, but the Malaysians have chosen what is best for Malaysia)

The question is not about phantom/ghost voters, but the silent majority, who is sitting on the fence. They are the major decider, both in 2008 and 2013. They have made their decision based on what they think is best for Malaysia and who can deliver the best service for Malaysia.

Despite anything most of the claims comes from social media, which is still unreliable, any photo’s , video’s can be manipulated to certain people advantage or disadvantage. Although some may not trust the mainstream media but at least they are tied to the law and will be careful enough not to publish something that have not been verified. The internet on the other hand are too free  without any control or self-censorship, some page was found to be spreading false news, for example these claims that the Bangladeshi PM officially confirms that there are Bangladesh citizen who was given the right to vote in Malaysia

taken from Revolusi Anak Muda Malaysia (R.A.M.M.)

However, when I searched myself about on the 66th World Islamic Economic Forum mentioned in the article, there was no such Forum. The actual forum will held their 9TH World Islamic Economic Forum on 29 – 31 October 2013, and it was formed since 6 March 2006, so how is it possible that the Bangladeshi PM just came back from the 66th forum? Plus, the acronym for the forum are actually (WIEF) http://wief.org/ and not (WIFE).

Whoever did this, certainly have a bad intention in making the situation worst. But what is even worst is how easy people believe and share something on facebook or any social network, without checking it first whether or not it is true or false.

So, please have  good thoughts, because  even places such as Lembah Pantai said to have phantom voters, did not stop the PR from winning in that area and the rest of other state won by the PR. So can we say that these phantom voters were actually voting for the PR instead? And  its a pity that everyone were so obsessed of catching ‘ghost’ that they attacked the wrong ones , such as the case of the Malaysian citizen who have a chinese name because he was adopted by a chinese family. In this globalized world where inter-racial marriage are evident, we cannot deny the fact that not all Bangladeshi are foreigners. Let us not forget that there are also a lot of Malays whom their family origin are from Sumatera, Jawa, Aceh and a lot of places from Indonesia. Some of the chinese here was also from  China, some lives in Singapore, so can we say that these phantom voter are from China /Singapore or even Taiwan or Hongkong too?

For  the muslims, win or lose, it have been decided long before by Allah from Allah, and the election are merely a reason to make  His decision happen. What is good comes from Allah, what is bad comes from our own flaws.

Let us pray that either side of the party do their best job in making a better performance. This is not the end, this is only the beginning.

Thank you Malaysia.
