Mr Hassan Ali is coming into some flack due to his utterance that MALAYS see infidels as easy-meat. The UMNOs are determined to muddy the waters and refuse to see the main fault.It is the constant and willing collusion between those who proclaim themselves defenders of the truth. The Government, the Police, the Media, even Charities were in on the act.
And people vote for this shite? They must have had a right old chuckle when they gave the plebs the SHIT
READ THIS ENOUGH IS ENOUGH! – Malaysia Today
The Najib administration has dismissed remarks by Singapore’s founding father Lee Kuan Yew who said yesterday that any attempt by Malaysia to retaliate over the return of the Tanjong Pagar railway land to the republiccould have led to war.
Hasan: DAP will merge M’sia, S’pore into republic
Moontime: I used to respect this motivational expert turned politician at one time but now, Hasan Ali is clearly showing signs of senility, dementia, and dare I say it, sour grapes.
We know that you are frustrated by not being chosen as Selangor MB. Your ambition is to merge PAS and Umno to rule Selangor but thanks to the will of the people and divine intervention, your plan failed. And now this!
First of all, why in the world would Singapore merge with Malaysia? Secondly, do we really want to merge with that country knowing that the economic gap is just too wide and the political ideology too different?
Poor Dr Hasan Ali, you have delusions of grandeur and when PAS refused to attend to your whims and fancies, you tried another approach by forming Jati. Let’s see how long your so-called third force will last.
Puchong Mali: This claim is so outrageous that it no longer makes for a good laugh. Hasan, you surprise me yet again just when I thought I have seen enough of stupidity from our politicians.
Bluemountains: I am just wondering if he will behave like this if he was made menteri besar of Selangor.
Rightfully, he should be charged for sedition. But it looks like he has the protection of Umno.
Muslims involvement in alcohol and other vices is nothing new and has been going on even when Selangor was under Umno, even though they don’t talk about it.
ONG: From the type of speeches Hasan Ali and Ibrahim Ali are allowed to deliver in public, it may appear that Malaysia can lay claim to being among the most democratic countries in the world, at least where freedom of speech is concerned.
Unfortunately, such practice of unlimited freedom of speech is only reserved for those who are members of the ‘ketuanan Melayu’ tribe.
David Dass: No merger can take place without the Malays and the Malay rulers agreeing to it. And a decision to retire the Malay rulers will also require the consent of the Malays and the sultans.
And this assumes that the non-Malays and the DAP want merger with Singapore and also want to remove the sultans. If Hasan Ali will remember, the PAP contested the elections in 1964 and were soundly defeated. They only took one seat and that was Bangsar won by Devan Nair.
So clearly the Malays and non-Malays of Malaysia were not impressed by Lee Kuan Yew and the PAP of Singapore. The DAP is not the PAP even if started off as an off-shoot of PAP. So it is wildly irresponsible for Hasan Ali to make such a statement.
But then he is the same person who alleged that Christians were out to convert the Malays using charity and modern communications devices. So are we really surprised? Does he have any credibility? Will Malays actually believe him?
Wira: Here is an idiot whose credibility is at stake and is grasping at last straws. How can DAP merge Malaysia with Singapore?
It doesn’t have the numbers in Parliament (we’ll need a two-thirds majority for that) even if DAP wins 100 percent of the seats it contests.
Freemsia: There we go again. Hasan Ali is no doubt looking like a supporter of Umno, using the same old modus operandi – speaking different things to a different crowd.
Umno will tell the Malay crowd that if Pakatan Rakyat takes over, DAP will be the dominant party and will abolish Malay rights, undermine Islam and the royalty.
And MCA will tell the Chinese crowd that if Pakatan takes over, PAS will be the dominant party and implement hudud law throughout the country. This government is a joke.
Just Me: Hasan, stop frightening the people. Umno and its gang have been doing it for more than 40 over years now. It doesn’t work anymore. Everything is in the constitution.
What makes you think Singapore will want to merge with Malaysia. It has one of the largest per capital income in the world. Even its citizens are allow to travel to the United States and China without a visa.
It has a large account surplus, why would they want to share it with Malaysians? Without crude oil, we are dead and that will happen sooner than we think.
YF: Well done, Hasan. You’ve proven to everyone that you are from Umno and not from PAS. Pakatan won Perak and PAS was given the MB position, so why doubt the Malaysian spirit of Pakatan?
Just admit that you have sold out Islam and the Malays and have been bought by Umno. The fact that you make no attack on Umno’s numerous acts of corruption and abuse of power is proof that your agenda is your own pocket.
Is Islam all about corruption and fitnah? You sure have proven that it is.
Faz: A person with a Phd is no guarantee to have wisdom and clarity of thinking. It is a futile academic exercise to evaluate Dr Hasan as his rantings spill half-truths and outright lies.
Samuel Ng: Why do Malaysiakini readers think Hasan is speaking out of stupidity? It could very well be from the pinnacle of his intelligence. It is just that you think it is a stupid remark.
Paul Warren: What is most shocking is that this mad man can still get 1,000 people to come listen to his dribble.
Geronimo: Come on, former Selangor exco Hasan Ali. You can fool the kampong folks but you certainly cannot fool us.
Do you honestly think that for one moment PAS and PKR would allow a merger between Malaysia and Singapore to go through even if there is an expressed desire on the part of DAP?
DAP just don’t have enough seats on its own to form a government so how could it possible that it could move mountain by merging Malaysia with Singapore.
Secondly, with the things going on here, do you think for one moment the ordinary Singaporeans would want a merger when they are doing so well themselves all these years just to suffer racial and religious bigotries from Umno, Perkasa, Perkida, Jati and what have you?
The Singaporeans will say, “Thanks, but no thanks.” Even the Malay Singaporeans will protest – to give up their secular lifestyle for a bozo like you?
Be gone. You are nothing but a fake, and a first class at that.
FellowMalaysian: The reason why our country is filled with malaise is due to the presence of renegades like Hasan Ali, who churns up their potion of prophecies to delude and deceive the people.
It is absurd and incomprehensible that a merger between DAP and Singapore’s PAP would ever happen as they are political entities of two different countries with ideologies of their own.
Hasan’s intention is clear; he hoped to create animosity and fear among the Muslims what a Pakatan-led government would bring by using his Machiavellian ways to spread lies and hogwash.
Hello: Hasan Ali is playing the ‘R’ (race and religion) card to the hilt. This is very dire for the country.
Why is he so callous as to cause so much polarity between the races? Doesn’t he know that this is a very dangerous game? Will his thirst be quenched with another May 13?
But what can we expect from a closet racist turned open racist, especially one that has a history connected with Biro Tatanegara?
WangMalaysia: I am disappointed with Hasan Ali… he should have brought in the conspiracy theory of communism as well into the picture. No wonder, even Perkasa would not take him in.
Progressive: Hasan Ali is no fool. He knows his audience well. And he knows which button to press. He is playing the religious card – Christians out to convert Muslims. And he is playing the racial card too.
Also he is appealing to the insecurity of a section of the Malay community vis-a-vis the Chinese. Then he is creating fear of the DAP by linking it to the PAP of Singapore.
His grand design is working.
Hasan Ali has the right to express his views. But we need to rebut his arguments. We need to question his integrity – that he was an Umno mole in PAS. And we need to expose him – he has enough skeletons in the closet while he was an exco in Selangor.
With Umno’s help, he is trying to build the third force to prevent Pakatan Rakyat from taking Putrajaya. Call him a fool at your own peril. Ignoring him would be an even bigger mistake.
Onyourtoes: Put it this way, Hasan. It is always easy to appeal to the raw sentiment of the people using race and religion.
When you first joined PAS, I am sure you have very good reasons, one of which was probably you were very unhappy with BN’s policy and the way they manage the country.
But now what are you shouting about? Didn’t what you claim to uphold now are those Umno-BN was trying to do all these years? Yes, to protect race, religion and the royal institution, but ask yourself how these things that you hold dear have further the cause of this country?
In case you don’t get it, your notion of race is parochialism, your notion of religion is bigotry and your royal institution is actually how corrupted politicians making use it to further their own narrowed and corrupted ambition.
Don’t be a phoney, Hasan, the whole world knows all about you.
Sadirah: Only a bankrupt politician will play on the fears of people. He has nothing concrete to offer. He is more concerned with moral policing than helping people realise God.
The problem with this nation does not lie with the non-Malays but with people like you who are threatened purely because you lack the capacity to have a big heart.
Kee Thuan Chye: Hasan Ali is delusional. How did he dream up this hare-brained idea that DAP would merge Malaysia with Singapore into a republic? How is that possible?
DAP would have to have two-thirds majority in Parliament to move for a merger. Even then, it would have to dismantle the Malay royalty. How could they possibly do that in a Malay-majority country?
He would be mad to think it’s that easy. There would be an uprising against it. Saying such things without logical reasoning is absolutely irresponsible. Where is the evidence for him to say that the DAP would abolish Article 153? It’s utter rubbish.
TVGS: Hasan, it’s better that we be part of Indonesia, a genuine republic, rather than Singapore, which is almost autocratic. And Indonesia is doing fine, don’t you think?
“It shows that Malaysians are observing the agreements they have signed without trying to retaliate in other directions, such as water, which will lead to war.”
That was part of what Singapore Minister Mentor Lee Kuan Yew reportedly said to a bunch of students at Nanyang Technological University last night.
The “agreements” which he was referring to was the one which was allegedly signed in 1990 in respect of the status of the KTM’s railway station in Tanjung Pagar and land between Bukit Timah and Tanjung Pagar. I have heard so many versions of that so-called point of agreements and the personality involved behind it. Suffice if I say that that so-called agreement is not beyond scrutiny when it comes to its enforceability.
After having said the above, the minister mentor continued to speak “positively” of “increasing connectivity” between Malaysia and Singapore through the construction of a third bridge. (I bet you Dr Mahathir is now hyperventilating with immense pleasure after reading that statement.)
The above remark is typical of the bomb-in-floral-wrap diplomacy which Singapore is so well known for. That tiny southern cock is well known for cuckoo-ing nice little compliments and praises to its neighbours while at the same time lacing them with seemingly harmless little hypothesis of wars and mayhems.
To me, the above remark is but a reflection of Singapore’s insecurity as a smallish state without any real and tangible strength in its resources, particularly in terms of citizenry and natural sustenance capabilities.
Singapore is almost always haunted by the fact that she even has to import water from Malaysia. She is of course also mindful, at all times, of the fact that 300,000 of its workforce come from Malaysia. Her economy by and large is also dependent on Malaysia’s willingness to maintain a peaceful, cordial and neighbourly relationship with herself.
There is absolutely no reason for Lee Kuan Yew to spell out his nightmare to 1,700 students in a forum, unless that nightmare has been haunting him and the rest of the Cabinet of Singapore for all of their collective life.
I would ask him, what “retaliation”? Is taking a stance — no matter how tough that stance is — in future negotiations with Singapore on any possible extension of any water agreement with Singapore an act of “retaliation”? If so, will (notice he used the word “will” and not “would”) that “retaliation” lead to war, dear Lee Kuan Yew?
If that statement was not a veiled threat to coerce and bully Malaysia into quiet submission to any whim and fancy of Singapore’s choice — particularly in any future negotiations in respect of the water agreement — I don’t know what it is.
Lee Kuan Yew and his subservient minions in Singapore’s Cabinet should be more circumspect in their choice of words if they wish to maintain a warm diplomatic relationship with its neighbours, particularly Malaysia. They would be well advised to note that civilised countries do not resort to issuing a not-too-veiled threat of war at the drop of a hat.
The Philippines had always had a bone to pick with Malaysia over the latter’s more than sympathetic stance in favour of the Moro Liberation Army’s fight for autonomy. Did it utter the word “war”? No.
Thailand’s position over Malaysia’s alleged assistance to the Muslim rebels in its southern region is also common knowledge. Did Thailand issue a “war” warning to Malaysia? No.
Brunei has had numerous overlapping territorial claims with Malaysia in the oil-rich seas. Did Brunei cry “war”? No.
Indonesia has had an almost schizophrenic relationship with Malaysia leading to demonstrations on its streets complete with flag burning and all. Did it even whisper the word “war”? No.
So please, Lee Kuan Yew and friends, stop being belligerent cocks and save that “W” word for your next PlayStation indulgence, okay.
As a nation, Malaysia suffered 2,058 air violations since 2008 at the hands of Singapore’s blind-as-a-bat air force pilots. In international laws and conventions, repeated and intentional encroachments into a nation’s space are acts of war. As a good neighbour, we just close our eyes and make a bit of noises once in three years or so. The word “war” has never left our lips.
What do you say about that Lee Kuan Yew? You don’t see any lesson from that? Or are you too old, too intellectually challenged, too mentally impotent to see?
If I were the foreign minister of Malaysia, a terse and not-very-nicely-worded missive in respond to the above statement would find its way to Singapore by now.
Post script: By the way, dear Lee Kuan Yew, do you want to know what a pub singer thinks of Singaporeans? Well here it is.
Quote: Singaporean men are “arrogant, short and ugly” but she would marry one of them for their money.
Now now Mr Lee, don’t you go declaring war against China please. That was just an opinion of a pub singer.
