HIyah! What la!

Errr...humma acheler subachaer le

Our newspapers always never report anything in full do they? Take today's story in The Star for example.

Iraqi doctorate student charged with reckless driving

That was the headline. The report goes on to say that Hamood Sheehab Hamid, 45 from Iraq was charged with reckless driving and causing the death of a fellow student of the Universiti Sains Malaysia. The Iraqi is studying for a doctorate in electronics engineering. Okay.

But the killer fact is that
no plea was recorded because Hamood could neither understand English nor Bahasa Malaysia.


The baarger is taking a doctorate in electronics engineering and speaks no English or Malay!!! What other language does USM teach in? That, The Star reporter or the editor didn't bother to report. Is that acceptable practise in journalism ah? Maybe that will the subject of tomorrow's edition?

This is how Star hopes to keep its readers in suspense and wanting to read and buy more of its trashy paper.

I think they should quickly do a security vetting on this Iraqi!! This guy could be here to learn how to make bombs given that a M'sian Uni lecturer, until his death last year, was the leading bomb expert in Asia!!

Wasn't it a month ago 7 terrorist suspects were arrested by our security forces?

We are all of 1 race, the Human Race

My source says he is doing his doctorate in binary or for common folks like you, digital language. It goes something like this:

That shows how good our universities are when taking in students! Chicken and duck talk also can be accepted for Ph.D course, what else cannot happenlah! Don't tell me this guy filled up his application in Iraqi! Niamah!

You are another stupid "bargger". You call yourself a Malaysian and yet don't understand Malaysian Boleh. Where in the world does it says a PhD graduate has to know how to read/write/speak English or Malay? He is here to do a doctorate. You obviously is not a PhD graduate. He can complete his doctorate thesis in Swahili for anyone cares. As long as the university review board says it's PhD material he gets a Doctrate.

You are one bloody Niamah to think a PhD thesis has to be in English or Malay. Oh ... just in case your tiny brain still cannot comprehend this, a PhD student don't need to attend classes, so he doesn't give a shit even if the university teach in Iraqi.

Niamah to a Pea Brain and that means you.

I think he could speak english. Just that his english is too perfect that our half past six malaysian policeman couldnt understand. ehehe..

I heard about it on the radio and the presenter was trying to make sense. Like, why is he charged? Ended up with the statement about the language. Real stupid

Why don't they try sign language?

USM is the only university on solar system that teach electronics engineering study in sign language.

The supreme manipulator of race ,religion to enhance personal glory and remain in power until death come is Mahathir. He picks and chooses each day what divisive tool is used to manipulate the Malay society and Malaysians at large. Religion is and has been the dividing force throughout history.

For more than half a century UMNO had been accusing PAS of using Islam as a political tool but actually it's the other way round. UMNO isn't an Islamic party but majority of the Muslims in Malaysia are Malays. To pull the crowd towards UMNO, it has to sensationalize issues that can bring in the crowd. Thus, we have the Allah issue and now the Prophet's birthday processions. But both issues do not conform to Islamic teachings. In this way, we see UMNO as the modern Abu Jahals and Abu Lahabs. They tried their very best to champion Islam but instead they are seen shooting themselves in the foot. No wonder some say UMNO is on a self-destruct mode. Yes, it's killing itself foolishly. Shame on you, UMNO!!!

Michael Jackson said...

PERKASA and JASA and all those other movements and organisations that contradict Najib’s 1Malaysia. Some of the people in JASA are also involved in PERKASA. JASA is about Islamic supremacy while PERKASA is about Malay supremacy. How does 1Malaysia reconcile with what PERKASA and JASA stand for? They are opposite to what 1Malaysia propagates. Are we seeing an Umno Lebih Baru in the wings? It looks like Umno Baru took over from Umno and the Umno Lebih Baru in the form of PERKASA will be the incarnate of Umno Baru which, as Dr Mahathir said, has failed the Malays.

1. Malays would still be split and divided. UMNO shall play heavily and much on the race, religion and and money issues to attract the votes.
2. The majority of the Chinese would support DAP. MCA and Gerakan would see their support base crumbling.
3. The Indians are unpredictible. Tend to sway with the sentiments right up to votes casing day.
4. There would not be substantial or radical surprises in Sabah & Sarawak. Both States shall remain the Archilles Heel of Pakatan. They may get a few more seats at most but do not expect a big swing. The majority indigenous voters there are slow to catch up with what's really happening in current politics for lack of knowledge and comminication to the Net and media.
If it turns out to be a hung Parliament, expect more of Perak and all the dirty sinister moles hoppng from on Party to another for just that few million ringgit. Putrajaya is not impossible but the road shall be long and winding.

Dear Patrick

I thought as a long time resident of Malaysia you would have known no studying is needed for any student pursueing a PhD in Malaysia.

PhDs are given out like banana notes by fake professors in world class malaysian schools masquerading as unis.

Anonymous said...

Aiyah Patrick,

Don't you know that our local 1Universities have mastered the fine art of teaching in other foreign languages, known or unknown, except English and of course BM (sorry, I don't know if it should be bahasa malaysia or bahasa melayu so BM will have to do).

That's why the standard of education in 1Malaysia is so low because the students do not know if they are coming or going since they are all taught in other foreign languages.

Or maybe this Iranian student is just only copying the Muhammad Muhammad fler's (I no speakee Ingleez) defence act. If it worked for the Muhammad Muhammad fler in Australia, it can certainly work in 1Malaysia. Afterall I am sure that the judge and this Iranian share the some sorts of similar religious brotherhood eh, wink...wink.

Long live 1Malaysia, Truly Asia, Truly Niamah.

This is the kind of journalism that the MSM has been practising. Wonder what the Star will have to say for their glaring deficiency,even if they could not care less to explain anything to the public. Oh, wait. They will say Patrick is a blogger and not part of them, the MSM. So, Patrick must be politically biased. He is politicising the issue, ma. Hasn't that been the usual crap of an excuse from the MSM whether they offer to publicly explain their lack of professionalism or not?

SameSame said...

Aiyoo, Patrick, they speak their 'bruder' language la! Dont you see that many of these guys on the street of think they all can speak BM and English?

He is probably a fake.

Don't you know that USM is an apex university?
Post-graduate students from any country can pursue their studies in any language ma, haha!

Actually USM sells doctorates on the internet and this Iraqi fler was one of those who bought the USM e-PhD's for US$1,000 +/- a few bucks. However in order to graduate, he has to come to USM to show himself to the USM dean. So it's not surprising that he does not understand Engish or Malay. As a matter of fact, I don't think the USM dean understands English himself.

This is 1Malaysia you know where everything is boleh and can be kowtim. USM is surely going to be world famous now and will be an anus university (not apex).

I wonder how his lawyer Badrul Hisham Abdullah communicated with him. Could it be possible that his lawyer knows Iraqi? Do we have Iraqi interpreters in Nibong Tebal Magistrates Court?

By the way this news was picked up by the Star from "Bernama" without any changes. So Bernama's quality of journalism is just as good or as bad!

Farid Ravi said...

It is not surprising that USM graduates will not understand English or BM. RTM has helped them to watch the 8pm news in sign language.

What would our Education Minister say on this matter?

The Iraqi guys will continue come here on student pass to impregnate the malay girls with iraqi genes/dna, maybe this is a way to memperkasakan bangsa melayu?

Government pathologist Dr Shahidan Mohd Noor is now singing the same tune that Teoh Being Hock's death is 'suicide'. Before that Dr Khairul Azman Ibrahim and Dr Prashant Naresh Samberkar sang a duet to try to convince the public of suicide. What is it with all these government doctors?

Don't they have any professionalism and self-respect left? Can their ethics and soul be bought for money and the promise of promotion? The general public knows that suicide is just not credible under the circumstances so stop treating the public like fools.

The MACC should also beware that a verdict of suicide will be the hammer that will smash forever their credibility in the eyes of the public.

Shiok Guy said...

I google about PHD courses in New Zealand, Australia, US and UK. I did not see or read anything about doing a PHD in your own language, Iraqi or BM or anything else.

Unless you are doing a PHD in a foreign language courses. For example in Canterbury University, New Zealand, you can do a PHD in Chinese or Moari Language or Literature. Not Engineering, and it has to be in the language of teaching in that particular University.

Something fishy is boiling in USM!!

I don't honestly believe that works...u see The Bolehland is all about Ka-Ching!!!!$$$$$$$ If you ever get to be in cahoot with some of those Datuk buggers for some gomen "con-track", entertaining them in some night club...u'd know what I mean.

YOU ARE ALL WRONG! remember not too long ago, there was this plagiarism case involving PhD students and university professor, and our learned deputy chief minister of Penang; Ramasamy, said what you see is just a tip of an iceberg, so in order for this guy to complete his PhD, he doesn't need to learn any foreign language, just copy and paste. No?

So, what is the fuss when an Iraqi like this moron who committed a crime go unpunished just because he cannot speak/understand some languages in court??? FCUK OFF!

the traveller said...

For some people here: the language of Iraqis is arabic not Iraqi. That's like saying Mexican speak Mexican instead of Spanish. If you want to poke fun of people make sure you know your facts first.

Anyway, in the States, there are a lot of postgraduate students from China, Iraq, Iran or South Korea who couldn't really converse nor understand english well. But they are here and doing their studies. It's intriguing to see that despite the lack of understanding in english, they are able to conduct their research and finish their studies because they understand their materials, i.e concepts, something that most malaysian students don't.

I've met a lot of Iraqi aerospace engineering students here in Texas. Some are not good in English at all but they are good in their studies. Considering they came from a war-torn country,it's really demeaning to be making fun of these students. Anyway, you don't really need english to know how to derive equations.

takut takut said...

Rosmah's statements like 'I like to have friends unlike Datuk Najib', 'if he is angry, there is no forgiveness for you', and 'if he stomped his feet, I will shudder' hardly paint a flattering picture for someone who is trying very hard to portray himself as a caring and sensitive PM of the people.

If anything, it strongly suggests that Najib puts up a public persona which is different to his own real personality.

"If he is angry, there is no forgiveness for you". This sentence sounds fishy. Like a warning to everyone. To whom, eh?

"If he is angry, there is no forgiveness for you." Goes to show you how some leaders lead by example. Others lead by fear.

Employer said...

When there is no clarification from USM, one would suspect that there is a lot of funny things happening in that university.

Maybe USM undergraduates can say something to 'defend' your university. Otherwise your USM degree will be viewed as no value in the eyes of employers like me.

I presume you are on a scholarship bcos you know your concepts while most malaysians don't. Hahaha....

Anyway, they found out that this iraqi has english written journal after claiming he no speaky the english. This fler is simply trying to evade his responsibility laaa.

The word 'ketuanan', just like the word 'slavery', undoubtedly has negative connotations. There are no two ways about it.

Why can't Malaysians fight for ketuanan rakyat Malaysia? What is 1Malaysia for if we can't accept all Malaysians as equals? Change must prevail. We let BN rule for 50 years why it can't be fair and let the opposition rule for a change? If they fail, then we'll boot them out. The power of the nation lies in the hand of the rakyat.
