Snippets

Guns crimes in Malaysia. Over the past week or two we have been reading about gun crimes in Malaysia. Almost one a day. Every day. But today I read that even buffaloes are not safe. Buffalo story HERE

---o0o---

I don't know where the folks at Free Malaysia Today get their inspiration for headlines. Today I read in FMT that we should ......

‘Blame Pakatan for gun violence’

Hahahaha... True. Apparently, according to the FMT report Umno says that the rise in gun shootings is the fault of Pakatan Rakyat. And who made the announcement this time? None other than former Malacca chief minister, Ali Rustam.

One of the best lines I've read in the Malaysian media in a long time...

The last person you should trust with either your money or your religious concerns is a politician. - Erna Mahyuni (The Malay Mail)

You might think that the issue of the beauty contest is a small one but it is above all a matter of principle. If we give in to this, we will eventually have to give in to even more outrageous things for we will have lost the moral courage to stand up for what is right - Zaid Ibrahim

---o0o---

According to this report in Free Malaysia Today (FMT) the deputy prime minister supposedly said this at a buka puasa function (to a predominantly Muslim audience I presume.)

“Muslims do not insult the religion of non-Muslims such as Christianity and Hinduism. But non-Muslims are insulting our religion”.

As a Malaysian I think the DPM's statement, if he did say it and was not misquoted, is very irresponsible especially during the Holy month of Ramadhan. But since then of course the DPM has been proven to have been talking some serious cock. 


NIAMAH!!!

Pat, Malaysia can now be considered a perfect location for the shooting of some of the american cowboy films on the wild west. We have a good supply of hired shooters or gun carrying "cowboys" and most importantly a large herd of cows for the films. Who knows, we might be engaged to play a part or two in the shows. I'm now dreaming ..Niamah..not bad ha acting as a cowboy in a film which may be titled- the Good,the Bad and the Ugly of the Cowgate in the Bolehland.

The MACC man got to celebrate Raya and got not enough money to buy a buffalo so got to steal but then too heavy to move so best way to kill it and remove it.
When he lost inGE13,Ali Rustam blamed the Chinese and now shooting incidents,he blamed PR.Shall we give him an honour for that-may be 'Mr blamer'
So far Muhyuddin so quite on the issue and it was BERNAMA that came out to clarify on his behalf.

Muslims do not insult Christianity? They forbid us from using certain words during our worship (such as Allah) and not too long ago a couple of Muslim got away with "stealing" Ho;y Communion, which Catholics believe is the Body of Christ. They were unpunished. Many many more examples, cow head etc.....

I wonder if Jakim has ever advised Umno members that corruption is haram, or to own a brewery is sinful, or to sit as deputy chairperson in a gambling giant will condemn a Muslim to hell.

Double Standard? That is why they are so afraid of Namewee?

Dogs are created by God. All creation should worship Him. So why can't a dog be cleaned up during prayer time? To me it shows that the owner wanted to worship together with her beloved pets. We cannot be punishing people for being humane. Sad. Very sad.
