 Najib has never seemed as helplessly weak as now when he think clever people him come to power he often make a simple mistake. He think the rest of us are fools

What makes someone a “real”Islamic intellectual in today rather than just a person who draws on a range of received wisdom to concoct theories, considering both tend to perorate to the appreciative huzzahs of like minded individuals?
What on earth, , Blame it on India’s tradition, but it does seem that these new Brahmins are not above the concepts of purity and impurity that defined the old caste system. Associating with those designated as “outcastes”, for instance, means exclusion or excommunication. In the West, the varna of intellectuals includes people of vastly differing opinions and ideologies. But there appears to be a disturbing homogeneity of views among this self-limiting class in India. And the very narrowness of their spectrum smacks of exclusion.. a Martian? could be forgiven for asking real Islamic Islamic ? How can one tell if a humanoid is an or some lesser – or greater – being on the evolutionary scale? And how does an earthling become an real”Islamic intellectual?
Is it hereditary? Is it a  like secret society with its own initiation rules that include endorsement by a quorum of existing members? Though I am not a Martian, I must confess that the very same questions have been running through my mind these days. a Martian could be forgiven for asking, is an intellectual?  not PAS deputy president  how can one tell if a humanoid is an intellectual or some lesser – or greater – being on the evolutionary scale? And how does an earthling become an intellectual?Given PAS’s hoary history of  Islam’s image  hierarchies, the suspicion arises that intellectuals here are the new Muslims. They are a cadre of people who consider themselves “intellectually” if not genetically superior and therefore deserving of special reverence. The Oracle of our times –

Hell has more definitions than heaven , possibly because more of us expect to end up there than in the other place. A cynic described hell as other people. Men of religion generally promise hellfire for the wicked, an image that rather contradicts the doctrine that the body is terminal and soul eternal. A soul can’t get roasted in flames, can it?
One much prefers the blind poet Milton’s insight. Heaven is order, he wrote, and hell chaos. By Milton’s standards, the government of Dr Manmohan Singh has already gone to hell.

Political Opportunism or Winning Whatever the Price
Noteworthy is his view of Najib as a political master at pulling the twin levers of patronage and punishment that underpin Malaysian politics as defined by UMNO; and the Prime Minister’s ability “to present himself as both the defender of the Muslim-Malay majority, and as the best protection the Chinese and Indian minorities have against resentful and assertive Malay political dominance.”
though a historic event in itself –The UMNO President the Sucker and Ultimate Loser recovering from the devastating effects of the giant earthquake the shocking expose by the American newspaper The Wall Street Journal (WSJ) last July is arguably the biggest bombshell ever dropped on a sitting Malaysian prime minister in recent memory clearly, some gestalt principles — where the whole seems to be more than the sum of the parts — have been at play.Blame it on UMNO’s tradition, but it does seem that these are not above the concepts of purity and impurity that defined the old system. Associating with those designated as “outcastes”, for instance, means exclusion or excommunication. In the West, the intellectuals includes people of vastly differing opinions and ideologies. But there appears to be a disturbing homogeneity of views among this self-limiting class in PAS and the very narrowness of their spectrum smacks of exclusion.This characteristic of politically opportunistic behavior is, of course, found with most, if not all, politicians. In Malaysia, the trait has been developed to an extreme degree. The objective of gaining power and holding on to it at any price is especially deeply embedded within the ruling coalition with its Machiavellian and self-centric political philosophy and culture.A significant, if still barely recognized, by-product of the tortured PAS decade is the collapse of voters’ trust in any patch-up, last-minute conglomeration. Accretion is no longer seen as strength, but as invitation to weakness. has used PAS under Awang Hadi has made coalition compulsions” once too often to justify the politics of barter with greed and incompetence, turning PAS into a foxtrot between partners in blackmail.Najib decisions were negotiated through, while the other opened the nation’s treasury for loot as reward for compliance: witness spectrum, Donorgate or land grab deals. Instead of gloating over the apparent lack of commensurate intellectual firepower on the “other side” so to speak, the PAS should wonder why. Was is because they want to preserve a secret ideological purity in their ranks here?

The current cries about the lack of due reverence for intellectuals and their erudite opinions by the philistines also bespeaks a certain despair. There is nothing so galling for an intellectual than a prevailing atmosphere where actions are valued more than words.

Today Najib is not only busy repulsing the opposition from within UMNO. He is also preparing the groundwork for the extended continuation of his rule. Two apparently diametrically opposed but in fact self reinforcing approaches are discernible.One is the wooing of PAS and the formation of a new strategic alliance with UMNO’s former number one political adversary. Never mind that the current political leadership of PAS under Awang Hadi has made the attainment of a rigid and uncompromising Islamic state and the immediate implementation of hudud as its precondition for any political cooperation between the two parties.One is the wooing of PAS and the formation of a new strategic alliance with UMNO’s former number one political adversary.

Funding parties need not be a dirty job political parties spend plenty of money. But they often end up collecting and spending huge amounts through patronage and extortion. Officially, most parties report only the tip of the iceberg. It’s best to make it compulsory for parties to declare their monthly spends in every locality. This should be open to challenge by other parties, watchdogs and the media. The process should be completed with the Election Commission finalising the spending figure. If undertaken up to the national level, political parties can be asked to show the source of income for their spending, at the disaggregated and combined levels. Off-the-book funding will stop when every  Ringgit is accounted for.Lobbying the government into specific policy action is legal in the US, via its First Amendment and the Lobbying Disclosure Act of 1995, which ensures that lobbying is publicly registered. The law also allows the public to evaluate any undue influences that may affect decisionmaking. Why not make lobbying legal in  Malaysia too?

  Whether rightly or wrongly, a perception has formed – especially in‘Donorgate’has been made more crippling by the fact  the crisis has highlighted two important points

Najib cannot ignore the aspirations of  Datuk Seri Abdul Hadi Awang, president of Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party (PAS).to be a minister can’t press the issue beyond a point. PAS too must display some flexibility. after all, the current political evolution. It’s one thing to engage in strategic diplomacy, quite another to come across as an overbearing Big Brother UMNO the idealism of that great American philosopher and public intellectual, Groucho Marx. As Groucho once said, ‘I have principles! And if you don’t like them, I have others…’
Call it the Najib paradox: the strength of his coalition depends largely upon on how weak he is as Prime Minister. The glue holds because he has no power over his partners. . All the Prime Minister can do is smile and carry on. The smile is wearing thinpower is central toUMNO schemes for the present and future, all parties have, by mutual consent, eliminated accountability from the algebra of governance to create a semblance of stability. Temperament and tantrum can coexist with venality and incompetence.The casualty is credibility: it began to creep away but the pace has gradually built up to a crawl. If Najib whose own reputation remains more positive than that of his government, does not act soon, the pace will quicken to a trot and develop into an irreversible gallop.
Najib seeks to address PAS demands to include concrete terms of reference for the political mechanism for

Hopes have been raised of a breakthrough to the ‘Donorgate’ crisis

Rhetoric aside, find a way to separate essential national business from the usual cut-and-thrust of politics.The Loss of billions from 1MDB case has turned into the biggest obstacle in government-opposition relations.monies finding their way into the god emperor’s personal account, and all fees, fares and tariffs rising. whether these  demand will be acceptable to Najib and his supporter in UMNO remains to be seen.

Abdul Hadi want the ministerial position and merely wanted UMNO to abide by Islamic ways.

Chaos is the wild weed rooted in corruption. Like an untamed cancer, chaos has destabilized the coalition, corroded governance beyond repair
A question is often asked, and never adequately answered except in a partisan sense:
A fundamental requirement of any democracy is anger management. Instead of calming periodic outbursts of anger on the street, sometimes led by mavericks, senior ministers went out of their way to provoke the people with insults. Voters were initially puzzled. They expected balm, and got astringent. Slowly their bewilderment consolidated into wrath. An increasingly defensive government sought refuge in belligerence. Ministers can laugh at the people and get promoted by the Prime Minister for their weird sense of humour, but in democracy the last laugh will always be with the people.Weakness is contagious. It tends to debilitate even those limbs of the body politic that are functioning normally.UMNO ministers have always known that they owe their jobs to party president , but they showed the requisite deference

PAS deputy president Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man says that one way of improving the image of Islam and to show a just leadership is for Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak to go on leave while 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) investigations are ongoing.. PAS is not after position as government head. PAS wants to fulfil its trust rightly following Islam. It’s up to the rakyat, who they want to choose. If the rakyat feels trust with the existing government is lost, choose PAS. It’s up to them .allies were clamoring to attach themselves to UMNO  Since PAS continues to survive in office like a patient spread across a table, it has become evident justification for euthanasia.An indecisive Prime Minister spreads uncertainty along every artery of power. He does not speak, and when he does silence seems the better option. . He appears to suggest that cliché or evasions are a solution Najib.walks on its knees.The Prime Minister has become either the target of dark outrage or the butt of black humour. The insulation that protected him while colleagues were falling on either side in the many corruption battles, has been ripped off by the coalmines allocation scam. The government has only one strategy for all the riveting scandals that have gutted its credibility: the purchase of time through delay or deception.Hopes have been raised of a breakthrough to the ‘Donorgate’ crisis

Now Najib MUST display flexibility to end the political imbroglio Rhetoric aside with Najib spending  wastage

 PAS president Tuan Guru Abdul Hadi Awang as an ‘interim prime minister

 PAS has challenged the Barisan Nasional government to get rid of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and investigate the financial controversies of the Islamic Economic Development Foundation (YaPEIM) as proof that it was serious in restoring Islam’s image.
“Improving Islam’s image is more than just a change of clothes, but involves the appreciation of Islam in various fields,” said the Islamic party’s Deputy President, Tuan Ibrahim Tuan Man in a statement today.
These steps, including reduction in government spending, were initiatives that could be implemented by Umno to show the people, especially Muslims, it was determined to exalt Islam.
He also called for Prime Minister Najib Razak to step down pending the Public Accounts Committee’s and National Audit Department’s investigations into troubled state-owned firm, 1Malaysia Development Berhad.
Tuan Ibrahim was responding to Defence Minister Hishamuddin Hussein’s statement today that Islam’s image needed to be fixed when commenting about the possibility of political cooperation between Umno and PAS.

 after 58 years of walking together arm-in-arm on a multilane road, only a single lane on this bridge is reserved for the ‘chosen ones’ to cross. The rest can take a hike or take a dive.Fight or flight” is the only survival tool left be prepared for a massive rejection come next GEFormer MCA president Dr Chua Soi Lek, you need to ask yourself this: What are MCA, PPP and MIC contributing to BN? Voters, donations?If they are of no benefits to BN, then it would be strategically a good idea for PAS to join BN and increase its voter base.As for the non-Islamic parties’ role in BN, currently their only function in BN is as Umno’s trusted minions. If PAS were to join BN, I don’t see a radical change in this function.When Umno and PAS tie up, what are MCA, Gerakan and MIC going to do? These parties were once major partners in BN. Where are they now MCA has now become an inconsequential and ineffective partner. It has become a lackey to Umno, an accomplice in Umno’s sins and misdeeds.Has it ever commented on the RM2.6 billion donated and banked into PM Najib Razak’s bank accounts?said nothing about the 1MDB crisis, about the free fall of the ringgit, the adverse impact of the implementation of the Goods and Services Tax (GST) and the use of the race card via the ‘red shirts’?They are endorsing Umno and PM Najib Abdul Razak’s scandals by not speaking up. MCA and the others can close shop if Umno and PAS were to link up. ‘Potentially casting them out of the political mainstream…’ – really, Chua? You are clearly not speaking on the facts of the matter, even when you were president of MCA.Umno no longer considers any of the BN component parties important. It is the obvious impotency of you folks against a bullying Umno that has caused many of the thinking rakyat to reject BN.PAS with Umno will consign you folks to oblivion, politically.Why Tell Me?: As for PAS and Umno taking control of the government, so be it. They will fight among themselves and perish. Indeed, they will learn the hard way.Who has made MCA irrelevant? All the leaders past and present who were more interested in lining their own pockets.And why is Umno so rich that they can buy the hearts of the holy ones? Because MCA is willing to close its eyes while the enrichment parties continue. Other than Umno, most of the other component parties are mosquito parties. MCA, MIC and Gerakan are pale shadows of what they were before.They are of no consequence to Umno. More important decisions are made in Umno meetings than BN or cabinet meetings.
