Excerpt: “There are a lot of factors that occurred, effects from the support of the Chinese to BN. The tsunami that I mentioned earlier, this tsunami of the Chinese community, led to large numbers supporting the opposition,” Najib said.
By labeling the rejection of MCA as Chinese Tsunami, it:
1) Contradicts his 1Malaysia ideology;
2) Further erodes the harmony of multi-ethnic Malaysia;
3) Put Chinese particularly in danger of being targetted.
Beginning March 1, Malaysian Special Forces attacked 250 men, women and children from Sulu, Philippines, who have a solid claim to the land with court judgments in their favor.

The Trans-Pacific Partnership Agreement is a free trade agreement under negotiation among nine countries, including the US and Malaysia.
The problem is the agreement deals with other non-trade issues, like investor rights, which affect how foreign companies do business, and patent rights, which affect access to affordable medicines. To make matters worse, the agreement is being negotiated in secrecy. And the countries hope to sign the agreement by the end of the year.
The EU-Malaysia Free Trade Agreement is another free trade agreement being negotiated between Malaysia and the 27 member states of the European Union. Similar to the TPPA, there are elements in the agreement that governs patent rights, which could harm access to cheap medicines. Although the negotiations are top secret as well, we are already seeing the destructive effects of such an agreement in India.

Perjanjian Kerjasama Trans-Pasifik (TPPA) ialah perjanjian perdagangan bebas yang sedang dirundingkan antara sembilan negara-negara, termasuklah Amerika Syarikat dan Malaysia.
Perjanjian ini malangnya, juga merundingkan isu-isu yang tidak berkenaan dengan perdagangan, seperti hak pelabur yang memberi kesan kepada cara syarikat-syarikat luar negara menjalankan perniagaan mereka di negara lain, dan hak paten yang membawa impak kepada ubat-ubatan yang dijual pada harga yang berpatutan. Selain itu, perjanjian ini juga dirundingkan secara rahsia. Hal ini merumitkan lagi keadaan dan negara-negara yang meyertai perjanjian ini ingin menandatangani perjanjian ini sebelum hujung tahun ini.
Perjanjian Perdagangan Bebas antara Kesatuan Eropah (EU) dengan Malaysia ialah satu lagi perjanjian perdagangan bebas yang sedang dirundingkan antara Malaysia dengan 27 ahli Kesatuan Eropah. Sama seperti TPPA, perjanjian ini juga mempunyai elemen-elemen hak paten yang boleh menghalang akses kepada ubat-ubatan yang murah. Walaupun rundingan-rundingan tersebut dijalankan secara rahsia, impak-impak negatif perjanjian ini boleh disaksikan di India.

Setelah berlakunya keganasan yang tidak ingini di sekitar Kuala Lumpur ketika perhimpunan Bersih 3.0, yang mendakwa sebagai perhimpunan aman, maka rakyat Malaysia dari berbilang kaum dan peringkat umur yang cintakan keamanan dan kedaulatan negara perlu menyuarakan bantahan mereka terhadap Pengerusi Bersih iaitu Dato S Ambiga.
KUALA LUMPUR (Reuters) - Malaysia deported a Saudi Arabian blogger on Sunday, police said, despite fears voiced by human rights groups that he could face execution in his home country over Twitter comments he made that were deemed insulting to the Prophet Mohammad.
Hamza Kashgari, a 23-year-old columnist, sparked outrage in the oil-rich kingdom with comments posted on the Prophet's birthday a week ago that led some Islamic clerics to call for him to face the death penalty.
Kashgari fled the country, but was arrested by police in majority-Muslim Malaysia on Thursday as he transited through Kuala Lumpur international airport.
"The Saudi writer was repatriated to his home country this Sunday morning," a police spokesman told Reuters. "This is an internal Saudi matter that we cannot comment on."
Malaysia has a close affinity with many Middle Eastern nations through their shared religion. The Southeast Asian nation is also a U.S. ally and a leading global voice for moderate Islam, meaning that the decision to extradite Kashgari is certain to be controversial.
"Saudi clerics have already made up their mind that Kashgari is an apostate who must face punishment," Christoph Wilcke, senior Middle East researcher at Human Rights Watch, said in a statement on Friday.
"The Malaysian government should not be complicit in sealing Kashgari's fate by sending him back."
Kashgari's lawyer in Malaysia, Mohammad Noor, told Reuters by telephone that he had obtained a court order to prevent the deportation, but had not been allowed to see his client.
"If the government of Malaysia deports him to Saudi Arabia, disrespecting the court order, this is clearly contempt of court, unlawful and unacceptable," he said.
The Star newspaper quoted Home Minister Hishammuddin Hussein as saying that Kashgari had been repatriated and that the charges against him would be decided by Saudi authorities.
"Malaysia has a longstanding arrangement by which individuals wanted by one country are extradited when detained by the other," he was quoted as saying.
Blasphemy is a crime punishable by execution under Saudi Arabia's strict interpretation of Islamic sharia law. It is not a capital crime in Malaysia.
Reuters could not verify Kashgari's comments because he later deleted them, but media reported that one of them reflected his contradictory views of the Prophet - that he both loved and hated him.
Kashgari later said in an interview that he was being made a "scapegoat for a larger conflict" over his comments.

The decision of the High court judge, Datuk Yazid Mustafa, in dismissing Aleesha Farhana Abdul Aziz’s application to have her name and gender altered in her identity card.
The ruling is inconsistent with the precedence established in 2005 when a mak nyah from Kuala Lumpur made the same application. Justice James Foong, in the case of JG v Pengarah Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara 2005, had then held in favour of the mak nyah in question (refer to URL).
Aleesha has expressed desires to further her studies and it is for this reason she wishes to change her name and gender on her official documents. Just like everyone else, Aleesha and many like us are striving to better ourselves and contribute to society. Aleesha and all Malaysian trans people deserve the same opportunities as others to improve the quality of our lives and pursue our dreams.
The court must allow Aleesha to change her name and gender. Her rights and the court’s duty must not be held hostage by the sensitivities of those who are ignorant about transsexualism. By denying her her right, the court is perpetuating an environment of discrimination within which she will never find the justice due her.
Trans people like Aleesha face extreme levels of stigma and discrimination in Malaysia. The discrimination is often perpetuated by biased, negative reporting from the media and endorsed by state mouthpieces, fueling the public to further hate, marginalise and abuse an already vulnerable group of people. These abuses, ranging from physical violence to mental torture to sexual assault, happen from when we are still children right into our adulthood. Lack of attempts to understand us have resulted in many being kicked out of families, schools and work. We are often prevented from accessing health services, housing, education, employment, and other basic rights enjoyed by all Malaysians. Without the law on our side, we are left without legal recourse to redress any injustice and abuse we suffered.
The unwillingness of the Malaysian government to recognise trans people as equal before the law facilitates this ugly persistence in violating us. Official recognition has in fact been granted by both Asian and Islamic nations. These include Singapore which recognises male-to-female transpeople and female-to-male transpeople; Nepal and Pakistan which recognise trans people as “third gender”; Iran, Egypt, Thailand, India and Pakistan, where sex reassignment surgeries are allowed and conducted.
These policies are justified by many scientific studies that have documented transsexualism as a condition resulting from many varied biological causes. Forcing trans people to behave in accordance to external sexual organs have been counterproductive to mental and physical health. However, through a variety of remedy now available, including hormonal therapy and sex reassignment surgeries, many trans people have been able to live happily and productively according to the gender identity with which we identify.
We urge the relevant authorities to take necessary measures and immediately act to create an enabling and safer environment for Malaysian trans people. This includes the repeal of laws that criminalise trans people for our identity, dressing and mannerisms. The government must set up a nationwide consultation with the trans community as soon as possible in order to better understand our issues. It is about time we have policies, programmes, services and legal remedies that meet trans people’s needs as defined by us.
We request that all concerned work to realising the spirit and intent of Article 5(1) of the Federal Constitution which clearly states that no person shall be deprived of his/her life or personal liberty save in accordance with the law. This article is strongly aligned to Principle 17 of the Yogjakarta Principles, which emphasises that:
“Everyone has the right to the highest attainable standard of physical and mental health, without discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity. Sexual and reproductive health is a fundamental aspect of this right.”
In June 2011, the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) passed a resolution to document discriminatory laws and practices and acts of violence based on sexual orientation and gender identity, and to study how to end human rights violations based on sexual orientation and gender identity. The international community stands with all of us in Malaysia whose rights have been violated for our gender identity. We therefore remind the Malaysian government of the pledges it made to become a member of the UN Human Rights Council, and as a member of the UN Human Rights Council, Malaysia is obliged to respect and uphold the human rights of all, equally and unconditionally.
62 NGOs under the non-partisan "Bersih 2.0" umbrella had called for clean, free and fair elections in Malaysia. In the lead up to mass rally on July 9, 2011, the government clamped down on all voice of dissent and accuse such the movement of attempting to overthrow a legitimated government.
Among the accusations were communist elements in the movement which led to 6 socialist party (PSM) members being arrested on July 2, 2011 and detained to date with trail. We call for international pressure on the Malaysian government to release all six detainees with immediate effect.
One of the avenues is through the Mayor of Fremantle, which has sister cities relations with Seberang Perai in Malaysia.
There are many animals and plants even trees in the rainforest going extinct so now you can help!
Also Malaysia is the top palm oil producer (44%) and Indonesia is second with 36 %!
The Malaysian Railway building at Tanjong Pagar is now at risk of being torn down after the 2 govts came to an agreement to develop the land.
The building should be saved and restored.
Malaysia, Truly Asia - a cultural melting pot where people of different races all live in perfect harmony.
Or so go the tourist ads, issued by the very same government who ingrains racist policy in the very laws of this country, and openly condones racist attitudes. In a multi-ethnic, "highly developed" (HDI 2007) country, it should be political suicide to have a special system of privileges for Malays. However, this is reality in Malaysia, where it is the responsibility of the king to ‘safeguard the special position of the Malays’.
Consider Article 153 of the Malaysian Constitution:
2. – Grants ethnic Malays preferential access to scholarships, exhibitions and similar educational/training prvilleges
6. – Allows an ethnic quota on business permits/licenses for ethnic Malays
8.(c)1.(8A) – Gives the Yang di-Pertuan Agong the right to reserve places for ethnic Malays in universities/other educational institutions after the completion of the Malaysian Certificate of Education (SPM).
News articles which confirm inequality in Malaysia:
“When you set up a company in Malaysia, Bumiputras must own 30%. When a Malaysian company goes public, 30% of the shares must go to Bumiputras--at a discount. Can't find a partner? The International Trade & Industry Ministry will give you a list of "approved Bumiputras" to whom you must sell--or give--a stake.”

In addition to this, racist attitudes are openly condoned.
Delay allocation to Chinese only to make them repent:

Clearly, some of us have had enough:
Facing Malaysia's racial issues
It is detrimental to the economic development of Malaysia, and even international sources agree:

The current state of affairs encourages division in what would otherwise be a far more harmonious society. We hope only for a society that offers fairness to all regardless of ethnicity, whether one is Malay, Chinese, Indian or of the various other races that reside in Malaysia.
Please sign this petition.
We, the Tamils supporters, note that the Sri Lankan State (SS) has commenced negotiations with the IMF for a Stand-by Arrangement for US$ 1.9 Billion.
We oppose this loan for the reasons given below:
HINDRAF is disappointed that except for occasional press releases and statements, no positive and constructive actions had been initiated to seek Manogaran’s release or easing his burden in serving his constituents.
Further, bearing the absence of Manogaran, his wife had been solely burdened with responsibility of the constituency when the Pakatan coalition could have easily appointed responsible elected representatives/ party members on a rotation basis to oversee and manage the constituents’ needs as oppose to burdening his housewife who is already overloaded with responsibilities of taking care of his legal firm and their family.
The Pakistan coalition partners need to display their responsibility seriously to live up to the confidence bestowed to them by taking pro active actions and continuous campaign in unison to seek the release of Manoharan as well as all the other ISA detainees.
People, I have received the final reply from Kpop Kingdom and CMG, sadly to say that the answer is a no. Contract has been signed, venue booked and the boys' schedule has been confirmed, therefore no further changes can be made. But please, do not be disappointed.According to CMG, the next concert will be available next year, which I'm yet to confirm with them. I would want to thank EVERYONE that signed the petition and all your effort in promoting the petition is well appreciated. I'm thanking EVERYONE for everything, "THANK YOUUU!"
I hope that no one is blaming the boys as it's not their fault at all, to arrange the concert at such a.. what do i say... wrong timing? (pardon me i'm still not over my disappointment) but at least we've came this far, we've tried our best!
I'm closing down this petition very soon. I hope everyone gets the notice. We have to do well in SPM and STPM, at least the boys are with us, in Malaysia, when the exam is going on, fortunate enough, no? ; )
Through this petition, Malaysian fans are truly brought one step closer to each other, and we will continue to work hard, and of course, to support the boys.
Although we can’t be there during their concert, but maybe I would suggest that we can have a PROJECT to compile all of our messages and wishes to the boys and ask some kind soul that is attending the concert to hand it to the boys? It’s just a suggestion anyway, but I can’t be handling this project as I’ve already spent so much time on the petition ( yes I have not been studying) and I have to get back to my work now.
TO OVERSEAS FANS : A MAJOR THANK YOU SESSION HAS TO BE CARRIED OUT TO THANK ALL OF YOU. THANK YOU.
Presently in Borneo (Indonesia and Malaysia) and Sumatra the Orangutan population is down to around 69,000.
This may initially sound like a fairly large number, but when you discover that we are currently losing 50 Orangutans a week and that at the present rate of killing there will be none left by 2026, you then realise why the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) have raised the alarm to an unprecedented level with a new report : "Last Stand of the Orangutan : A State of Emergency".
The reason for this panic and devastation unfortunately lies very close to home.....Palm Oil.
In your home right now there are likely to be a number of products that you use & consume everyday which contain Palm Oil from Borneo or Sumatra. To enable us to have these products millions of hectares of natural Rainforest are being destroyed to be replaced with Palm Oil Plantations.
These Rainforests are the homes of the Orangutans, but everyday more and more are being slaughtered with guns, machetes, wooden stakes and even set on fire so that multi-national Palm Oil companies can get richer quicker.
In some cases the babies of these Orangutans manage to escape, but unless rescued their fate is as heartbreaking as their parents. Orangutans share 96.4% of human genes and the helpless babies stay stuck to their mothers side for at least the first 5 years of their lives............ Just like our children.

Siti Nurhaliza, Malaysia's top artist has just gone open with her plans to marry Datuk Khalid, a prominent businessman in Malaysia.
Although most fans are disgusted by the fact that she is 20 years younger than him (she is 27 and he is 47), but the thing that irks most Malaysians is that he is said to have divorced his wife of 20 years just so that he could marry Siti.
He has four sons, with age ranging from 8 to 19 years old. Her wonderful image is tarnished by this sudden news and we are hoping that she would stop all her plans to marry him.

This petition is to collect signatures of all residents/owners of Bayu Puteri Apartment to appoint the Protem Committee to act on their behalf in any communication with the Management/Developer related to the defects, complaints, etc of Bayu Puteri utilities in the common area.
Imposing religious and moral law will only lurch a state to more theocracy (rather than democracy) where it could undermine religious tolerance and civil liberty in the country.
The September 11, 2001 event was an act of revulsion that was committed in the name of Islam, and Islamic States including Malaysia and Arab countries blunted their criticism relatively to the U.S. occupation of Muslim land in the Arab world or U.S. affiliation with repressive regimes in Muslim countries counting mainly at U.S. support for the State of Israel as the root of terrorism.
Theocratical states (especially Islamic states these days) are less venerating to democracy and human rights. They draw religious lines between Muslim and Non-Muslim moving the Islamic world to fanaticism, while others may label it Islamo Fascism.
At a zoo in Malaysia, Zoo Negeri Johore, twenty-five-year-old chimpanzee Toney has sat in a small, poor area since she was a baby. She is a gift to a South-East-Asian sultan from Africa, but has neither lived with him, nor with any other "family". Most of the time, she has been all alone on her cold, stony floor for all her life. Friends of animals (in and outside Malaysia) have tried to have Toney (and one lately arrived male companion) moved to Chimfunshi Wildlife Orphanage, where a place is ready for them. The zoo, for which the government is responsible, says they will only release them if they get other chimps in return. We think you don't act that way with animals - you should think of what's best for them!
